September 20, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Gibberish Day

 Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 20, 2016 Only 50 waning days to go until the only polls that matter close for Trump to continue his pivot before we elect a new president; kudos to the great police work in New Jersey and NYC have captured alive this Islamist coward bent on killing Americans and kudos to Dubai for catching his Pakistani wife (another familiar San Bernardino ring to our open border who if this thug had waited would probably be a naturalized citizen) as she was fleeing the                                 
U.S.; in another blatant act of bias and advocacy distorted reporting, CNN falsely claimed that Trump was promoting “racial profiling”; HRC is not campaigning today but is meeting with some world leaders in NYC; while Obama wants to open the spigot on migration from Syria, Germany’s Merkel regrets her decision to let in some million refugees as her party lost another election this one in Berlin (if one Willie Horton tanked Dukakis, think what 500,000 Syrian refugees will do to Clinton after the stabbings and bombings this weekend); DHS aka the Keystone Kops admitted that almost 900 people from nations of interest (aka nations with radical Islamic terrorists) who were subject to deportation orders were granted citizenship http://alaskanpoet.blogspot.com/2016/09/hundreds-of-illegals-wdeportation.html;  in another example of desperation HRC accused Trump of aiding and abetting ISIS (that makes about as much sense as a claim that Churchill’s strong stand against Hitler aided and abetted the Nazis); market on pins and needles awaiting a Fed decision on Wednesday on whether it will raise rates as the president of Wells Fargo will be falling on his sword before Congress testifying about some 2,000,000 fraudulent accounts that were opened without customer consent or knowledge to generate bonus income; ending on a humorous note but yet another example of how wacky California has become due to the Blues, California passed legislation to limit bovine farting (can hardly wait to see the studies later coming out that Beano is a cause of cancer in rats).
          As Trump is trying to become more presidential, going to www.lyingcrookedhillary.com is a great way to start your day along of course withwww.alaskanpoet.blogspot.com and reading Clinton Cash would be a great read to understand the quid pro quo mentality of the Clintons.

1. National Gibberish Dayobserved only once a year but daily in the offices of Congress, the president and the bureaucratic officials that are hell bent to make us mere mortals’ lives incredibly difficult.  
2. National Take A Loved One To A Doctor Day—celebrating the need to create awareness of the need for family members and friends to go see medical professionals when illness or disease strikes.   
3. 1944 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1944 on a run of nine weeks in that position “Swinging On A Star” by Bing Crosby. Here is a recording of Bing Crosby performing the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CDs067081E
4. National Rum Punch Day—this food holiday should have been celebrated yesterday on International Talk Like A Pirate Day but enjoy it anyway (in moderation as always).
5. Even Humans Can Be Ugly Ducklingscelebrating the birth on this day in 1934 of Sofia Scicolone called by her wet nurse as the “ugly duckling” and in her teen years as the “thin stick,” but now known to her fans around the world as Sophia Loren and still going strong at 82 years of age.     
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1946 the first Cannes Film Festival was held in Cannes, France.
b. 1962 James Meredith, an African American student, was temporarily barred from enrolling in the University of Mississippi; but was admitted after the Court of Appeals found the governor of Mississippi in contempt of court and ordered him jailed and fined $10,000 a day until Meredith was admitted which he soon was.   
c. 1971 Hurricane Irene made landfall in Nicaragua, weakened and had enough steam to pass through Nicaragua and enter the Pacific where it gained enough strength to reacquire hurricane status with a new name Hurricane Olivia the first known hurricane to cross from the Atlantic into the Pacific.      
d. 2001 before a Joint Session of Congress, President Bust declared a “War on Terror,” a war which is still being waged, but under this feckless president as the weekend events in Minnesota, New Jersey and New York demonstrated,  not very well, devoid of a winning strategy.
e. 2011 the U.S. Armed Forces ended its “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy with respect to gays and lesbians serving in the military and opened up the military to them.     
Reflections on the War on Terror after seeing the hijacked planes fly into the World Trade Center:Here we are then, I was thinking, in a war to the finish between everything I love and everything I hate. Fine. We will win and they will lose. A pity that we let them pick the time and place of the challenge, but we can and we will make up for that.”  Christopher Hitchens, noted journalist and author who drank and smoked himself to death in 2011.  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.
