September 6, Ridley's Believe It Or Not Fight Procrastination Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 6, 2016 Only 64 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 276 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 although in a condescending way she allowed a few reporters to finally travel with her yesterday and spoke with them while in the air); polls now suggesting that the perception of her dishonesty and pay to play is finally taking root as her lead is going south big time; new FOIA requests indicate that the very first Senate hearing on Benghazi when the Senate was controlled by the Blues was rigged with a top Clinton aide feeding the Chairman Senator Menendez questions for her to answer; Duerte of the Philippines joined the growing list of leaders who have lost any respect for our president by calling him a “son of a whore”; Carlson settled her sexual harassment suit against Fox for $20 million but Greta announced she is leaving while Tantaros’ sexual harassment suit is still pending; on a sad note, Chicago has now passed 500 in the homicide mark (since the vast majority of these are black where is the BLM outrage?); on the weather front hurricane Newton is hitting Baja and will drench Arizona and New Mexico but sadly little or no drought relief for California. 
       As Trump is trying to become more presidential, going to www.lyingcrookedhillary.com is a great way to start your day along of course with www.alaskanpoet.blogspot.com and reading Clinton Cash would be a great read to understand the quid pro quo mentality of the Clintons.

Reflections on procrastination: “Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it.
