August 7, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Purple Heart Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For August 7, 2017 Judicial Watch has once again peeled the onion aka The Swamp and forced the DOJ to reveal that Loretta Lynch, whose credibility re what was talked about at her tarmac meeting Bill Clinton is zero, used a nom de plum email account and is in battle with the DOJ to release DOJ talking points concerning that tarmac meeting (why the DOJ is fighting this defies any rational thought but confirms that the DOJ is infested with Obama holdovers working 24/7 to destroy Trump); Senator Blumenthal who flat out lied about serving in Vietnam and Trump are in Tweet snit (as a Trump supporter it galls me no end when he gets sidetracked over a complete leftist scumbag like Blumenthal who has zero credibility); Rahm Emmanuel masquerading as a mayor is putting the rights of illegals over the lives of minority residents who are being slaughtered in his city but finding resources to sue the federal government that is threatening to withhold funding due to Chicago’s sanctuary city status; Google is airing its PC dirty laundry as an internal ten page memo has been leaked on the issue of diversity and “biological issues” as to why there are not more women working there; our border may be porous but at least we can build a wall assuming obstructionists like Schumer are nuked but Italy has only the Mediterranean Sea and is being swamped by an inflow from Libya of migrants from Africa; on the cop killing front another police office has been shot and killed during a routine traffic stop as 2017 continues in terms of dead officers the pace set in 2016; through August 6, 2017, 2256 people have been shot in Chicago 388 of whom have died.
    As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Beyonce and Jay Z, factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote by Robert Mueller on public service, knowing that the 535 Gang’s leaving the Swamp to enjoy an August recess is an irrisory act,  secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like 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.
1Purple Heart Day—created by George Washington in 1782 and originally designated as “Military Badge of Merit” for enlisted men and NCOs for meritorious service, redesigned in 1931 and now awarded to any member of the armed forces wounded or killed in the course of service by friendly fire or otherwise.  
2. Assistance Dog Day—celebrated on Monday of the first full week in August to celebrate and honor the contributions of assistance dogs that make life so much easier for people who have mental, physical, or emotional challenges.  
3. 2003 Number One Song—the number one song in 2003 on a run of 8 weeks in that position was “Crazy In Love” by Beyonce featuring Jay-Z. Here is a performance of the song:
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “irrisory” means mocking which is what the Swamp denizens do on a regular basis with respect to Americans living outside the Beltway and the MSM does with respect to Trump. 
5.  A Bad Day to Go Fishing or Look For Witches—celebrating or bemoaning depending on one’s outlook the birth on this day in 1943 of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller who should be congratulated for his service in Vietnam but questioned as to objectivity due to his friendship with Comey and his proclivity in staffing his “fishing/witch hunting” team with lawyers who contributed to HRC’s failed campaign.     
On this day in:                                                                                 
a. 1944 IBM introduced the Harvard Mark I, the first program controlled calculator.  
b. 1947 after a 101 day journey of 4300 miles from Peru, Kon-Tiki, a balsa wood raft built by and captained by Thor Hyerdahl, crashed on the reef off of Raroia in the Tuamotu Islands, adding credibility to the theory that people from South America could have settle Polynesia in pre-Columbian times.              
c. 1955 Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering the precursor to Sony sold its first transistor radio.
d. 1964 as a result of bogus attacks by North Vietnamese gunboats on the destroyers USS C. Turner Joy and USS Maddox, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution granting President Johnson the ability to use force in North and South Vietnam and the nightmare known as the Vietnam was on.
e. 1990 as a result of the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq and a perception that Saudi Arabia might be next the first American military forces started arriving in Saudi Arabia as part of Desert Shield.        

Cost benefit analysis on public service from the birthday boy who is in a lose lose situation “The rewards of public service outweigh the periods of criticism that you will inevitably get.” Robert Mueller Given the perception of lack of objectivity due to his friendship with Comey the political beliefs of his staff of lawyers and the amount of political capital spent by the Blues on the Russian Collusion Delusion, I think he is in for a great disappointment. 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.
