September 3, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Skyscraper Dayr

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 3, 2016 Only 66 waning days to go for Trump to pivot before we elect a new president and in an era where politicians really need to be transparent 270 days since hiding Hillary has held a formal press conference (where is the outrage of the press as she refuses to answer any questions from the press; what is this candidate trying to hide other than the obvious pay to play corruption of the Clinton Foundation and Bill’s outrageous speaking fees?); FB1 did a Friday data drop of its notes  on its questioning of Hillary (which more and more commentators are claiming to be a whitewash with no transcript and no Miranda warnings); we know Hillary used a BleachBit to destroy her “personal” emails but she must have found a BleachBit pill for her memory as she answered 36 questions with a “I don’t recall”; Trump was at a Detroit black church reaching out to the parishioners; Santa Clara police are threatening to boycott 49er games over Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the National Anthem; non combat military jet crashes are on the rise, probably due to budget cuts in maintenance and training and the aging of the planes;  tropical storm Hermine is pounding the Northeast; on the student athlete front Stanford swimmer Brock Turner was released after serving half of his six month sentence for rape;  two members of the USC football squad are being investigated for sexual assault and former NFL great Lawrence Taylor was arrested on DUI charges in Palm Beach, Florida.
        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.

Reflections on a common denominator: “It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic, of all things physical and metaphysical, of all things human, and all things super-human, of all true manifestations of the head, of the heart, of the soul, that the life is recognizable in its expression, that form ever follows function. This is the law.” Charles Sullivan, Astute observation on his birthday.  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.
