July 26, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not One Voice Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 26, 2016. Only 178 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term and 235 days since hiding Hillary has held a formal press conference;  the DNC without Debbie Wasserman Schulz opened in Philadelphia with no mention of terror and  with no American flags present (I guess America according to Michelle is the greatest nation as long as its symbol of unity is not present) but one Palestinian flag being waved; rousing speeches by Warren and Sanders that must make the DNC after comparing Hillary’s pathetic speech ability (yelling) feel like the German General Staff in WWI who likened ally Austria as being tied to a corpse; Bill speaks tonight and in a first he probably is not being paid by a foreign government seeking favors from the State Department; another ISIS jihadist attack in France at a church that killed a priest and sent two fanatics to find that in reality the gates to Paradise for them are locked; Solar Impulse 2 completed its solar powered flight around the world that began over two years ago by landing in Dubai; 5 Russian canoeists joined the Russian track and field team by being banned from the Rio Olympics for doping.

On this day in:
a. 1908 the Attorney General Bonaparte issued an order to staff the Office of Chief Examiner (later name the Federal Bureau of Investigation).

d. 1989 a federal grand jury indicted Cornell student Robert Morris for releasing the Morris worm. He was the first person to be prosecuted under the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act; after conviction he had his wrists slapped with three years’ probation, 400 hours of community service and ordered to pay a fine of $10,500.
e. 1990 to the delight of unscrupulous lawyers the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush.  
Reflections on the Hillary Standard on the 108th anniversary of the founding of the FBI: “The spine of the FBI is the rule of law. The spine of the FBI is a commitment to doing the right thing, in the right way, while protecting civil liberties.” James Comey, FBI Director Great, high sounding words but in view of caving to the White House in the case of the investigation of Hillary Clinton and despite the FBI’s findings, the FBI did not recommend indictment.  Please enjoy the poems on events of interest on my twitter account below (if you like them, retweet and follow me) and follow my blogs.
