September 18, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Water Monitoring Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 18, 2016 Only 52 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 chilling reminder that the homeland is not safe several unexploded bombs were recovered after two bombs went off in NYC and New Jersey injuring dozens but fortunately killing no one and another radical Islamist stabbed nine people in at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota which has had significant problems with Somali refugees (yet both Hillary and Obama want to increase the number of refugees from Syria by 500 percent); a black police officer with 17 years on the force has filed suit against Obama, Hillary, BLM and Al Sharpton for inciting a race and attacks on police (where would we be without our lawyers?); Florida State was destroyed by Louisville; Stanford beat USC and will face UCLA at home next Saturday; and the Rams open at home in Los Angeles.
          As Trump is trying to become more presidential, going to is a great way to start your day along of course and reading Clinton Cash would be a great read to understand the quid pro quo mentality of the Clintons.
