December 13, 2017 Ridley's Believe Or Not Nanking Massacre Memorial Day b

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 13, 2017 Senator Gillibrand wins the hypocrite of the year award for defending Bill Clinton’s rapes and oral sex and attacking Trump (thank God our female young interns at the White House were not subject to the First Man aka a noted sexual predator trolling the halls of the White House); Republicans dodged the party of perverts bullet as Judge Roy Moore was defeated yesterday in Alabama but Blues are still beating the drums calling for Trump’s resignation over sexual harassment claims widely argued over during the election; the emails between demoted biased FBI agent Peter Strzok  and Lisa Page released to the House Judiciary Committee are pretty shocking in terms of bias and hatred of Trump and if that was not bad enough it was also revealed that Bruce Ohr’s wife was hired by Fusion GPS to work on the anti-Trump dossier (Ohr was  a top DOJ official demoted for meeting with Fusion GPS and concealing the meeting); Mueller has lost all credibility of possessing any objectivity or impartiality in his “investigation” six aka witch-hunt; Mika Brzezinski had another meltdown and attacked FLOTUS and Ivanka for Trump’s tweet bashing of Senator Gillibrand; on the good news front Mo Brooks who lost to Judge Moore in the Republican primary disclosed he has high risk prostrate cancer which was discovered after his loss by a physical and a PSA test which he would have postponed if he had won; almost a stuck record or a gruesome  remake of Groundhog Day, Chicago style,  the carnage in Chicago continued unabated with total shootings by mostly minorities against mostly minorities in 2017 through December 10 increasing to 3443, 599 of whom have died.
