July 24, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Pioneer Day (Utah)

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 24, 2017 The hysteria of the Russian collusion delusion and the new narrative of obstruction of justice among the left and the MSM continues unabated as all indications point to Trump signing the Russian sanctions bill (news flash to the Waters, Pelosi, and Schumers of the world the threat to our democracy rests with the Blue idiots of the Swamp who will not accept the simple fact that Trump won and a felon lost); Schumer has finally said something that is not insipience that Clinton needs to look herself in the mirror to see the cause of her loss and that the Democrats had had no message only that they were against Trump; in another  example of the feeding frenzy of anti-Trump hysteria, a poll out of 1200 voters evenly split 42%-42% that Trump be impeached (unbelievable); Mueller and his Clinton supporting team are expanding their probe like the oil spill of the Exxon Valdez trying to find anything on what looks like a true political witch hunt with no smoke and certainly no fire;  the San Antonio semi truck driver will appear in court today as the death toll climbed from 9 to 10; on the history front, the USS Constitution left its dry dock for Boston Harbor after a two year restoration project; India and China continue to rattle sabers and Hamas is back to its old tricks of launching  rockets into Israel; through July 23, 2110 people have been shot in Chicago 369 of whom have died (sadly the ATF agents Trump has sent has not put a damper on the carnage).

2. National Tequila Day—who would have ever imagined that the ingenuity of humans to produce alcohol would have figured out how to turn cacti into tequila.      
3. 1989 Number One Song—the number one song in 1989 on a run of 2 weeks in that position was “Toy Soldiers” by  Martika. Here is her performance of the song:
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “intemerate” which means pure or undefiled which is a trait most politicians quickly lose once in the Swamp as the need to constantly raise money kills whatever idealistic motives that caused them to seek office in the first place.                
5. The Mailman Rang More Than Twice—celebrating the birth on this day in 1963 of Karl Malone, known as the Mailman and with teammate John Stockton were formed and unstoppable back door combo on the court.

d. 1974 SCOTUS ruled 9-0 that President Richard Nixon did not have the authority to withhold the Watergate Tapes and ordered him to turn the tapes over to the Watergate Special Prosecutor.
e. 2001 Simeon-Saxe-Coburg Gotha, the last tsar of Bulgaria when he was a child was sworn in as Prime Minister of Bulgaria, the first monarch in history to regain political power through a democratic election to a different office.    
Reflections on the Watergate Tapes: After Nixon resigned in 1974, he engaged in a very aggressive war with history, attempting to wipe out the Watergate stain and memory. Happily, history won, largely because of Nixon's tapes.” Bob Woodward 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.
