June 14, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Blood Donor Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 14, 2017 It may be jumping to conclusions but in Alexandria we may have seen the dog whistles being blown by the left resulting in tragic consequences as a 66 year old gunman James Hodgkinson who before being shot and dying at the hospital opened fire at Republicans practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game between Reds and Blues that raises over $500,000 for disadvantaged youth in the Swamp, firing some 50 rounds and hitting Majority Whip Congressman Scalise and two police officers (fortunately the Majority Whip was on the team and at practice with his security detail or in the words of several witnesses there would have been a massacre); what sort of further tragedies do we have to endure before the left tones down the rhetoric against our president and the Reds?; horrific fire in an apartment tower in London killing six people and many more bodies expected to be found; it would appear that the only reason the rogue nation released Warmbier is due to the fact he has been in a coma for months and the North Koreans did not want him to die in their custody; as to be expected the Blues with their fantasy Russian collusion delusion came across during questioning of AG Sessions as complete idiots with the classless Senator Harris relentlessly browbeating Sessions; in a chilling omen on what we face with an expanded refugee program, Germany reported that sex crimes committed by migrants almost all of whom are Muslims into Germany doubled last year (no wonder Germans are getting sick and tired of their open border government); Rahm Emanuel’s top priority for Chicago remains making it the premier sanctuary city in the country as the carnage continues unabated in June with total shootings in 2017 through June 13 increasing to 1538 and the death toll increasing to 273, a major tragedy that the powers to be in Chicago seem to completely ignore except for those fortunate enough to own a mortuary.
    As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Ricky Nelson, factoids of interest for this day in history, hoping Trump will destroy the impedimentary tactics of Schumer and his lackeys, a relevant quote on donating bloodsecure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like Fathers’ Day which is right around the corner, weddings, or anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem at a great price tailored to the event and the recipient. You need only contact me for details.
1. Flag Daycommemorating the adoption of our flag by the Continental Congress on this day in 1777. 
2. World Blood Donor Day—celebrated since 2004 as one of eight public health observances by the World Health Organization to promote safe and reliable blood supplies and to promote gratitude for those donors who donate blood.      
3. 1961 Number One Song—the number one song in 1961 on a run of 2 weeks in that position was “Travelin’ Man” by Ricky Nelson. Here is a performance by him of the song: Nelson and 5 members of his band were killed in a plane crash just outside of Dallas on December 31, 1985 at the age of 45.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “impedimentary” which means obstructing or hindering which is what Schumer and his lackeys have become so skillful at when it comes to the Trump agenda.            
5. What to Give a Man Who Has Everything—celebrating the birth on this day in 1946 of Donald Trump whose birthday would be greatly enhanced if the Blues in Congress would cease their fanatical impedimentary tactics. 
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1775 the Continental Army was established by the Continental Congress.    
b. 1941 the Soviets begin the mass deportations and murder of Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians.      
c. 1954 President Eisenhower signed legislation that inserted the phrase “under God” into our Pledge of Allegiance.          
d. 1967 China exploded its first hydrogen bomb. 
e. 2002 in the near Earth asteroid 2002 MN passed within 70,000 miles of Earth; had it struck the planet the effect would have been similar to the asteroid that hit Siberia in 1906 and leveled 800 square miles of trees.             
Reflections on donating blood, the gift of life “Blood is meant to circulate. Pass it around.” ANON Good advice and another reason to donate a pint that you can thrive without but may save a life.  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.
