July 5, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Bikini Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 5, 2016. Only 199 days left to endure President Obama’s term. Trust your 4th of July weekend was a good one although the carnage continued unabated in Chicago with 60 people shot and five killed; with stop and frisks down by over 90% no wonder parts of Chicago are more dangerous than Iraq; ISIS attacked mosques in Saudi Arabia; Obama campaigns with HRC in North Carolina and Trump will do the same but in his case he is footing the bill for Trump 1 but will HRC’s campaign pay for Air Force One?; growing calls for Loretta Lynch to resign after her tete-a-tete with Bill Clinton aboard her private jet for 30 minutes; in a what do you expect moment Hillary’s top aide Abedin admitted that Hillary routinely burned her daily schedules and finally in a really sad day for the integrity of the FBI, the FBI revealed today they would not be recommending a criminal referral to the DOJ but sadly expected after Obama endorsed her, early on proclaimed her innocence and is campaigning with her today. The director called her conduct with classified materials “extremely careless” which is the same as gross negligence which should have put her in prison for up to ten years.
           On the goods news front and do we need it after the FBI’s announcement the Jupiter probe Juno after a five year trip costing $1.5 billion dollars has successfully entered Jupiter’s orbit. www.lyingcrookedhillay.com is a great way to start your day along of course with www.alaskanpoet.blogspot.com
