September 14, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Hindi Divas

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 14, 2016 Only 56 waning days to go until the only polls that matter close for Trump to continue his pivot before we elect a new president; in a great day for American taxpayers, the House moves to start impeachment proceedings for one of the most despised men in this country, the arrogant and demeaning head of the IRS and serves a subpoena on the FBI to release its files on its Clinton “investigation”; Obama, the president whose normal reaction to an ISIS beheading is to head to the golf course mocked Trump’s appeal to blue collar workers by claiming they could never get on one of Trump’s golf courses; former Secretary of State Colin Powell in leaked emails calls HRC dumb in her use of a private email server and, to be fair and balanced, Donald Trump a “national disgrace” (but for Johnson’s gaffe on “what is Aleppo,” he would be a refreshing alternative to Trump or Hillary); the people who set up her server all take the 5th (a judge would admonish the jury that no inference can be made if a person refuses to testify but a mere mortal has to believe these people are about as guilty as guilty can be in terms of obstruction of justice by destroying evidence); HRC returns to the campaign trail amid growing concern over her physical ability to be president; rumors growing that Bill Clinton has been urging his wife to undergo a thorough physical but she fearing leaks has refused; on the refugee/radical Islam front in Germany a fireman was sentenced to six years in prison for setting fire to a Syrian refugee hostel and in Britain another radicalized Muslim was arrested for plotting to bomb Buckingham Palace and an Elton John concert; on the sports front Russian hackers have released medical records of various star athletes including the Williams sisters and Simone Biles; in a rare display of candor the State Department admitted that he Iran nuclear deal deceptively rammed down our throats by the Obama administration seems to be emboldening Iran to act in a hostile and provocative manner toward the U.S.
          As Trump is trying to become more presidential, going to is a great way to start your day along of course with and reading Clinton Cash would be a great read to understand the quid pro quo mentality of the Clintons.
