June 9, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Coral Triangle Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 9, 2017 Finally after denying Reza Aslan was even an employee of CNN, CNN took a small step to regaining its long lost  journalistic integrity causing him to join the ranks of Kathy Griffin by firing him for his profane anti-Trump rants; we now know after Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intel Committee that Comey is a total wimp and a leaker, Trump was never under investigation and the Russian collusion is a Blue delusion that was instigated by the MSM and the left to distract and obstruct the Trump agenda of creating jobs, cutting taxes and regulations, replacing Obamacare and increasing border security (time to hit the gong on the Blue Neros Band!; learning more about “Unreality Loser’s” anti American beliefs, loyalty to the Taliban and desires to burn down the White House (true to form the poster child for obesity Rosie O’Donnell called her a true patriot and contributed $1000 to her defense); May’s snap election ended in disaster for May as the voters stung by two terror attacks by Islamists did not give her party a majority in Parliament; the drought in California is definitely over as the snow pack in the Sierras is such that ski resorts may be open into August, leaving little time for maintenance and repair before the snow starts falling again in September and October; notwithstanding a complete lack of any basis, the two new idiotic Don Quixotes in the House Green and Sherman (he represents the San Fernando Valley) are plowing forward with Articles of Impeachment; 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 6 increasing to 1471 and the death toll increasing to 257, a major tragedy that the powers to be in Chicago seem to completely ignore except for those fortunate enough to own a mortuary.

4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “immeritous” which means undeserving which is the perfect description of most if not all denizens of the Swamp.           
5. Back to the Future--celebrating the birth on this day in 1961 of Michael J. Fox, noted Canadian-American actor and advocate for those including himself suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. Still going strong and an inspiration to those unfortunate enough to suffer from the disease.
