June 8, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


When it rains it pours as Trump has stated he has been indicted by the Special Prosecutor investigating the Classified Document scandal and the 1/6 protests/riots while slamming the double standard of Biden’s retention of classified documents (how many more straws have to be added before the Trump back is broken?). It looks like Wray does not want to lose his job and be held in contempt so the complete FBI form of the claimed allegation of a Biden bribery conspiracy of $5 million to a secure viewing facility to the House Oversight Committee will be sent (Two parallel illegalities going down the same tracts 1st  of Biden on possible bribery and 2nd overshadowed by Trump’s indictment for retaining classified material and DOJ seeing it as a means to Trump’s election prevent); Never in our history has a former president been indicted for serious crimes and never one who is leading as the Red candidate selected to Biden defeat; Sane unbiased minds need to come into the room, ere were will be aping a Banana Republic off the cliff to our doom. With the Biden feds on border security MIA, Texas is launching portable water barriers to stand in illegals’ crossings way. Ukraine has finally launched its offensive to drive Russian troops out of Crimea  and Eastern Ukraine against Russian troops who may be demoralized unwilling to fight and then die. As Biden looks more senile each day and Biden ensnared in legal baggage on Hunter coming his way look for more Blues to ape RFK, Jr. and launch into the 2024 election fray as Gavin Newsom goes into the Hannity Fox News Den for a Monday evening interview. While the super leftist Southern Poverty Rights Center is naming parents rights’ organizations as domestic terrorists do not be surprised to see Blue parents by the droves exit from the Democratic Party who seems hell bent to ape the East Germans to separate children from their parents.

Two of the more famous victims of the disease dying from it are Senator Ted Kennedy and 2008 Red Presidential Candidate John McCain.
              Word of the Day: the word of the day is “antithalen” which means opposed to mirth and fun which probably defines most of our colonial Puritans.

But true to the creed of the military to not let any be left behind he was rescued by a Marine helicopter from the ground.

             Famous Quotes: Reflections on the NFL/AFL merger:
             Al Davis, Managing Partner of the Oakland Raiders: “
We were weak and I didn’t like it. It wasn’t the money, it was just that we had them on the run and gave in. They knew it, and that’s why they wanted to come to terms.

             Patrick Sullivan, son of Billy Sullivan who owned the Patriots until selling the franchise in 1988 and Patriots General Manager from 1983-1990: “Al went out and signed three of the NFL’s best quarterbacks. That wasn’t really a shot across the bow. That was a shot right at the midsection, and shortly after that the talks began in earnest and they culminated in the merger.”

San Bernardino Jury Acquits Son Who Prompted Mother Armed With a Knife to Acquit Son of Attempted Murder When He Shot At Her With Here Gun But Missed All On Tape

 As violent crime across the nation seems more and more like a tidal wave
With far too many innocents maimed or sent to a far too early grave
This poet against the Defund the Police Movements has often railed
For obvious simple fact that fewer cops on the streets, harder to crime curtail
This poet has also targeted Soros funded D.A.’s
Whose quest for equity means violent felons are rarely sent away
Too often prosecutors are prohibited from alleging strikes
And more time for enhancements like guns these Soros D.A.’s rarely like
Using discretion to charge down to cut a plea deal
Or refuse to prosecute too often with oblivious zeal
Sheltered by legislatures who pass laws requiring cashless bail
So the poor cop who risks his life sees a thug released from jail
Add to the list those judges wanting to give the thugs multiple chances
Sentences of only probation or minimal time while victims fear and look askance
And now another target worthy of our disgust and shame
Juries who may be anti-police and want not to criminal behavior tame
In San Bernardino, a female deputy answered a priority 911 call
By a mother fearful her son was going to kill her as the deputy tried to his actions stall
Did not draw her gun but only patted the son down
When he head butted her and punched her to the ground
Then wrested her service gun from its holster case
And shot but missed narrowly her face
Her Guardian Angel was on duty that day
Her gun jammed so the son could not her slay
Black eye and broken thumb on the surface PTDS to last and run deep
The only job this deputy ever wanted to perform she could no longer keep
Despite the incident on tape, 911 call mother protecting herself with a knife and son after the gun jammed kept trying to shoot
The jury bought the defense argument the son was acting in self-defense and the attempted murder they should refute
They acquitted him of attempted murder, assault on a cop and an arrest to resist
Guilty only of negligent discharge of a firearm so his mental illness will continue to exist
Maybe the jury was not anti-cop only outraged this son obviously mentally ill
Was not getting the help he needed so he lashed out and wanted to his mother kill.

June 7, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


The massive wildfires raging in Canada have made the skyline in NYC looking worse that smog filled skies of the Los Angeles Basin in the late 50’s and 60’s so bad that lack of visibility has prompted the FAA to close La Guardia to incoming airliners as the air quality is rapidly approaching hazardous warnings. AOC was quick to capitalize on the wildfires in Canada and the record temperatures in Puerto Rico to push for quick adoption of her New New Green New Deal  (which most Americans would have less objections if two of the largest carbon emitters, India and China joined in which they most likely will not). The Freedom Caucus of the Reds in ramping up their objections to the passed Debt Ceiling bill seem hell bent to act like lemmings driving themselves over the cliff to destruction as opposed to focusing on increasing House seats, taking control of the Senate and sending Biden and the Word Salad Queen into retirement. In another example of what Reds castigate as 2 systems of justice as Cedric Richmond former adviser to Biden and now a senior adviser to the DNC crashed into a tree in New Orleans and when the officers arrived they apparently knew who he was but despite slurring his words and being disoriented did not test him for DUI. Kate Middleton aka Princess of Wales who took over from Prince Harry being patron of the Rugby Football Union and the Rugby Football League in England was seen on a rugby field with the Maidenhead Rugby Club Prince Harry was being cross examined in his lawsuit against the Mirror Group for illegally snooping on his private life. Biden after proposing regulations that would effectively preclude new gas ovens and stoves has set his sights on doing the same for gas furnaces (when does Congress act to weigh in on this regulatory overreach?). Feces City has just received another negative vote due to the crime and drug use in its streets as one of the largest REITs announced the closure of two of the major hotels in downtown Feces City as T-Mobile closed its 17,000 square foot store in Union Square (such a shame as this once beautiful City on the Bay is destroying itself with self inflicted policy wounds). Former Mike Pence announced he has entered the race for the Red nomination for president while as Biden’s approval ratings drop, his planned bunker campaign is gearing up to avoid any debates with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (as Kamala Harris’s approval ratings drop such that a vote for Biden is really a vote for her given the very realistic chance he will die in office or increasing dementia will force his removal under the 25th Amendment which Reds will certainly remind voters each day of the 24 campaign).

             Noted Holidays: Global Running DayFirst celebrated here on the first Wednesday in June in 2009 which then morphed into Global Running Day in 2016 with millions of runners going online to pledge to  run 5 kilometers. Running is a healthy way to get in shape and loss weight except today in the Northeast where the pollution from the Canadian wildfires would be very difficult to run in or even being outside walking from one’s car to shop in a store.
              Word of the Day: the word of the day is “antimnemonic” which means damaging the memory which describes what dementia does and what we see too often watching Biden. 
               Song of the Day:  The number 1 song on this day in 1970 was “Everything is Beautiful” by Ray Stevens on a run of 2 weeks to share with 24 other songs achieving number 1 ranking, while 14 acts, including Ray Stevens and George Harrison who was the first Beatle after their break up to in solo, achieved number one status for the first time. Here is a music video of Ray Stevens performing “Everything Is Beautiful”:
             June 7 “Constitution Trumps Trump”: Mike Pence, former Congressman, Governor of Indiana, and Vice President, was born on this day in 1959 and chose today to announce he was running for president and who after praising the policy accomplishments of Trump castigated his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election vowing to always support the Constitution.
              June 7 Historical Events In Rhyme
              1.     On this day in 1982 Priscilla Presley opened up Graceland to the public to visit the grounds and its rooms/Except the bathroom where  at age 46 the King met his doom/Over 650,000 visitor at Graceland each/Many hoping this this will be the visit that King of Rock and Roll reappears.
               2.     On this day in 1981/Israel fearing that Iraq’s quest for a nuclear weapon had begun/the Israeli Air Force with 8 F-16’s in a preemptive attack attack/Destroyed Hussein’s nuclear reactor which was French supplied type Osiraq. 
               3.     On this day in 1977 in London the high day of Queen Elizbeth’s Silver Jubilee/a million viewers filled the streets and 500 million round the world watched the proceedings on TV.
               4.      On this day in 1965 SCOTUS finding in the Constitution a right of privacy penumbra effect/Ruled in Griswold v. Connecticut that the state could not the sale of contraceptives reject.
               5.      On this day in 1899 temperance activist Carrie Nation/believing those who drink deserve only damnation/Grabbed an a sack of rocks to go to in Kiowa, Kansas to start her temperance crusade/Destroying with rocks Dobson’s Saloon’s and 2 other’s inventory to their ability to sell alcohol degrade.
                 Famous Quotes: Carrie Nation on hearing voices that told he to go to Kiowa: “The next morning I was awakened by a voice which seemed to me speaking in my heart, these words, "GO TO KIOWA," and my hands were lifted and thrown down and the words, "I'LL STAND BY YOU." The words, "Go to Kiowa," were spoken in a murmuring, musical tone, low and soft, but "I'll stand by you," was very clear, positive and emphatic. I was impressed with a great inspiration, the interpretation was very plain, it was this: "Take something in your hands, and throw at these places in Kiowa and smash them."

Pence Announced His Run and Praised Trump Policies but Not 1/6 Acts While Christie Announced and Blasted Trump as "a Lonely Self-Serving Mirror Hognly ane S his sishis t


On this day to celebrate when Mike Pence was born in 1959
He threw his hat into the presidential ring and differences with Trump defined
He first announced that people should be grateful for Trump’s policies
On border security, his tax cuts, fast track for COVID vaccine and building a robust economy
But castigated him for on the 2020 election crossing the Constitutional line
For asking him to join with him and the results and illegal election define
Pence is a pretty reserved and steady guy
Acts to subvert the Constitution he will defy
He will appeal to those Reds whose Trump’s policies support
While questioning his demeaning behavior that comes up short
Christie who has also joined the race
Pulled no punches as he claims Trump is a disgrace
Called him “a lonely, self-serving mirror hog”
Who can’t admit to seeing faults due to his narcissistic fog
Already among the male Reds the knives are out
Foretell a vicious ad hominem political bout
That for Nikki Haley or Christi Noem may bode well
To take the policy and platform high road instead of descending into ad hominem Hell
While the Blues continue to blast De Santis
Falsely distorting his policies to make him as despised as a Praying Mantis

Bud Light Sales Still in the Tank Too Much of Pride Week For Kids Rates an X Boycotts of Woke Sellers Who Attack Our Values


Bud Light is beginning to look like a beer that has gone flat
Carbonation gone, taste disappeared, Bud Light Girls pinned to the mat
Even with discounts aping prices of decades ago
Few people buying beer to the Bud Light section to buy go
The month of May saw a 24.5% sales decline
While Coors Light and Miller Lite are doing just fine
As Pride Month continues with “Family Friendly” events
Full of X-Rated scenes that any parent from seeing would their children prevent
Some sanity in Orange County where only the national, state, and county flags will fly
LBGTQ community outraged that Pride flags were denied
They must not accept the fact that the banner represents all of us
Regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or creed—none are thrown under the bus
The left so often falsely creates phobias to create fear and divide
When someone could care less but does not want to immerse on the gay side
Finally Americans are beginning to realize their values are being thrown under the bus
Learning of Marx’s vow to hang the last capitalist with the rope he sold us
And vowing that they will no longer buy products of warriors of Woke
Who use the funds to cancel our culture and what makes us great revoke
And while calling us misogynists want to drive biological women from sport
Allowing transgenders to compete to all progress under Title IX abort

In Virginia following the graduation ceremony for Huguenot High School, an arrested suspect as yet unnamed opened fire to kill 2 and wound 5 others. Blue Gubernatorial Candidate Andy Beshear in a tight race against his Red opponent is scrambling after a 2020 photo of him with the anti-Christian LBGTQ Sisters of Indulgence appeared as his opponent was quick to claim Kentucky is not California. When Jean-Pierre was asked about Biden’s pattern of falling last seen at the Air Force Academy she skirted the question and started touting his “accomplishments” (To the joke that you can always tell when a lawyer is lying when it’s when he or she moves their lips add Jean-Pierre). Leave it to an avid golfer Donald Trump to back in 2022 accurately predict the merger of the 2 professional golf associations LIV Golf and the PGA which has occurred. After putting Bullseyes on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments, the left with the Mayor Adams of NYC as their spokesman is suggesting illegals be taken in by private residences seems ready to scorch the 3rd as the consent requirement would be bypassed by mandatory fees  homeowners must accept for the privilege of having illegals camped out in their homes. The LGBTQ mouse has roared that Target suffering huge backlash and boycotts from mainstream American shoppers must put back on its shelves its transgender wares (wonder if the CEO of Target and the CEO of Bud Light would want to get together to drink Bud Light and eat munchies on Pride Plates?). The Kakhovka Dam on the Dnieper River has suffered major damage with both sides blaming the  other although it would appear that the flooding caused by the destruction would greatly hamper Ukrainian forces from their planned offensive to push the Russians out of the Crimea which strongly points to Russian responsibility but one thing is certain grain prices have increased and will continue to do so as large areas of crops will be affected. The World Bank has issued  a warning that the economy remains in a perilous state with stubborn inflation that is defying higher interest rates. AAA has demonstrated again EV’s Achilles Heel by loading a F-150 EV Ford which had a testing protocol reduced range from the EPA’s 300 to 278 with 1400 pounds of simulated cargo and found the range lowered to 210 miles.

             Noted Holidays: D-Day: Celebrated on this day since 1944 to honor the Allied invasion of  Festung Europa in Operation Overlord by
the Allies landed around 156,000 troops in Normandy. 73,000 American (23,250 on Utah Beach, 34,250 on Omaha Beach, and 15,500 airborne troops inland), 83,115 British and Canadian (61,715 of them British) with 24,970 on Gold Beach, 21,400 on Juno Beach, 28,845 on Sword Beach, and 7,900 airborne troops inland, supported by 5,000 ships and 11,000 aircraft with a cost of over 4,000 killed and over 5,000 wounded to mark the beginning of the end for Germany on the Western Front while it was being pushed back relentlessly by the Red Army on the Eastern Front.
              Word of the Day: the word of the day is “anticryptic” which means camouflaged to resemble the environment which the illegals, who are runaways as opposed to asylum seekers who turn themselves in, wear when crossing the border to attempt to avoid detection. 
               Song of the Day:  The number 1 song on this day in 1971 was “Brown Sugar” by The Rolling Stones on a run of 3 weeks to share with 18 other songs achieving number 1 ranking, while 16 acts, including Janis Joplin who became the second artist to achieve number 1 status posthumously, achieved number one status for the first time. Here is a music video with lyrics of The Rolling Stones performing   “Brown Sugar”:
               June 6 “Jealousy is the root of all evil”: Judith Eva Barsi, a noted child actress and voice actress, was born on this day in 1968 in Los Angeles and stared  acting in commercials at age 5 and by the time of the 4th grade was earning $100,000 a year but had an alcoholic father with 3 DUI’s who must have resented and been jealous of her success. Sadly before her mother could leave him and take Judith with her, on July 25, 1988 he shot and killed her and her mother then shot and killed himself.
               June 6 Historical Events In Rhyme
               1.     On this day in 2002 our Earth for an asteroid became a bullseye/As it exploded in the Mediterranean over between Greece and Libya but no one died/10 meters wide to a force of 26 kilotons to produce/Same amount as A-Bomb  that Hiroshima to rubble reduced.
               2.     On this day in 1971 Soyuz 11 was launched to dock with the world’s first space station on the 7th of June/22 days later they departed but their reentry to Earth was ruined/The reentry cabin depressurized and all oxygen was expelled into space/The capsule landed with 3 dead Cosmonauts who died well before they landed at their base. 
               3.     On this day in 1966 James Meredith famous for integrating Ole Miss/Was on a March Against Fear to claim that blacks who did not register to vote were remiss/Was shot by KKK member Audrey Norwell with a shotgun to writhe on the road in pain/Photographed by Jack Thornell who won a Pulitzer Prize which helped black voter registration make great gains.
               4.      On this day in 1945 a B-29 named Enola Gay over Hiroshima the first atom bomb it dropped/Which the America military believed would bring the war to a stop/Killed 70-126,000 civilians, 20,000 soldiers and 12 POW’s at or near the explosion site/Plus thousands more later as radiation sickness began its deadly bite/But to our unexpected surprise/We had to drop another on Nagasaki 3 days later to bring the war’s demise.
               5.      On this day in 1889 the Great Seattle Fire was started with an overturned glue pot/Seattle’s volunteer fire department was quickly overwhelmed and the fire it could not stop/In a city built mainly with wood and weather hot and dry/The entire downtown area was burnt to the ground with ashes rising miles into the sky.
                 Famous Quotes: Dwight D. Eisenhower who opposed used the A-Bomb: “Iwas against it on two counts. First, the Japanese were ready to surrender, and it wasn't necessary to hit them with that awful thing. Second, I hated to see our country be the first to use such a weapon.”
               Harry S. Truman who had to make the decision and obviously supported it: “Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima. . . . The force from which the sun draws its power has been loosed against those who brought war to the Far East. When you have to deal with a beast, you have to treat him as a beast. It is most regrettable but nevertheless true.”

Refunding the Police Will Help in the War on Violent But Nothing But Losses Until Soros Backed D.A.'s Are Defeated at Election Time


As urban Blue run cities are being deluged with a tsunami of violent crime
Slowly cities are coming to the realization that defund the police was out of line
Cities now restoring budgets and scrambling to induce officers to enlist or to return
With signing bonuses and perks and more dollars a cop can earn
But the effort will fail if recruits and returning officers feel city councils do not have their backs
While they are most likely protected 24/7 from  deadly attacks
The man or woman in Blue knows when he or she leaves their front door
Their return may be detoured to an ICU or morgue as attacks on cops soar
And the effort will fail if Soros backed soft on crime D.A.’s are elected
To push for diversion, no cash bail, to charge down and enhancements be rejected
Gascon is the poster child for justice for victims he claims we must ignore
But worse an abject failure of L.A. County residents to show him the recall door
Who wants to be a threatened member of the Thin Blue Line
When those they arrest D.A.’s are too loathe in prison to confine
What Soros and his funded minions cannot comprehend
Is that a person to protect his safety will go to any end
Which is why with more arms bought each year by victim avoiding owners of guns
The Wild, Wild West self-protection shooting gallery has begun
