July 13, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Embrace Your Geekness Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 13, 2017  The Russian collusion delusion that has the Blues lathering like a bunch of rabies infected infected dogs just got even stranger when we learn that the Russian lawyer Donald Jr. met with who was denied a visa evidently had the Obama administration probably Lynch overrule that decision to allow her entry (if there are any sane heads left in the Democratic Party which sadly watching Harris and Warren is problematic, time for them to step up and quell this utter nonsense that Tim Kaine, Blumenthal and Schiff are ranting about treason); Joe Scarborough announced what many have known for years that he is leaving the Republican Party (good riddance and perhaps he should turn in any press credentials as his objectivity has been flushed down the toilet years ago); Gore who probably has the largest carbon footprint of any human being on the planet was ranting in Australia that climate change ranks on the same par of concerns with slavery, apartheid and nuclear proliferation (really Al?); the drama over repeal and replacement of a failed Obamacare continues with the Republicans struggling and the Democrats refusing to join the discussion; President Trump is in France to celebrate Bastille Day with President Marcon and gets slammed by MSNBC (the same network with leftist Joan Walsh that slammed Ivanka Trump for wearing a dress at the G-20 that looked “girlish”) for commenting that Marcon’s wife looked in great physical shape; through July 12, 1944 people have been shot in Chicago 338 of whom have died (hopefully the ATF agents Trump has sent in will help put a damper on this carnage.

On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1863 the New York City Draft Riots began to protest conscription and the fact that for $300 a wealthy person could be exempted; the riots quickly turned into a race riot against blacks and did not end until three days after and needed several regiments of troops and militia to restore order.      
b. 1923 the Hollywood Sign was dedicated in the Hollywood Hills overlooking Hollywood.             
c. 1973 in a beginning of the end moment for Nixon, Alexander Butterfield revealed to the Senate Subcommittee investigating Watergate the existence of the taping by Nixon of his conversations (HRC worked on that subcommittee which is probably why she set up her private server and destroyed or tried to destroy all emails on it to conceal her qui pro quo dealings while Secretary of State).

Reflections on Brexit from the candidate Macron defeated: “I chose as the campaign logo a blue rose, which means 'make possible the impossible.'
