July 17, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not International Firgun Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 17, 2017 The Juice will be finally let loose on parole to hunt for the killer of his ex wife Nicole? Hobbled by diabetes  and memories of what he once was and but for killing her he could have been to  rest in tormented hell like Hector dragged behind a chariot until you die; Reds are still scrambling and do not have the votes to repeal and replace (why is Trump still MIA on this debate?); the real threat to our democracy is not a naïve meeting with a Russian lawyer who looks more and more like a person with no info on Hillary, who but for the intervention of the Obama administration should not have been here and was involved in a classic entrapment to damage Trump but the growing number of Obama senior officials involved in the probe of unmasking Trump supporters and campaign officials; Susan Rice, the woman with zero credibility, will be testifying before Congress but sadly it may be behind closed doors on the unmasking of Trump officials and supporters; USC which in the past has had its scandals limited to the athletic field has been rocked with a report that its former Dean of the Keck Medical School led a life of drugs and prostitutes (Fight on for SC!); call the cops to report a possible sexual assault and be shot dead by a Somali-American police officer with no body cams on sad (the victim looks a lot like Kate Stenle whose death the Blues including Harris refuse to protect future repeats; 
                                                                                     through July 16, 2026 people have been shot in Chicago 356 of whom have died (sadly the ATF agents Trump has sent has not put a damper on the carnage.

Reflections on a crime the International Court of Justice was created to prevenvent:“   Genocide is not just a murderous madness; it is, more deeply, a politics that promises a utopia beyond politics - one people, one land, one truth, the end of difference.
