Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 6, 2017 Al Green’s idiotic motion for impeachment was voted on today in the House and was tabled by a vote of 364 to 58 (all Democrats who seem to have forgotten we have more important fish to fry like a looming government shutdown or the critical need to implement a tax cut); as a result of the resignation of John Conyers, Jr. pervert Al Franken (stay tuned as his office indicated he will be making a statement tomorrow) is getting more and more pressure to resign before the Ethics Committee boots him from the Senate as 10 female Blue Senators and 6 male Blue Senators have told him to resign as a 6th victim has come forth alleging sexual harassment which the pervert has not denied (if Moore wins he will most likely face a larger number of Blue and Red Senators demanding his resignation as the Reds must avoid the label of the party of perverts that the Blues will work 24/7 to pin on them); in an attempt to preserve his legacy, Conyers has endorsed his son John Conyers III (sure hope the proclivity for sexual harassment is not a genetic trait that has been passed on to his son if he is elected); on the pervert Lauer front, Annette Roque, his soon to be ex-wife, was spotted in New York sans wedding ring on her finger and according to her father will be filing for divorce (hope she takes this pervert to the proverbial cleaners); the good news is that scientists in the U.K. are making some progress on creating a supplement that would reverse the aging process by keeping cells regenerating but he bad news for baby boomers is that a marketable product is 20-30 years away; Trump announced that he has instructed the State Department to immediately begin the process of moving the Embassy to Jerusalem and reminded everyone of his commitment to the peace process including a two state solution acceptable to Israel and the Palestinians; former aides of pervert Weinstein revealed that they were supplying him with toys and meds for erectile dysfunction; 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 5 increasing to 3391, but in what almost seems a miracle for the last two days the death toll has remained stuck at 587.
As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Frankie Carle and his orchestra, factoids of interest for this day in history, the fact that you are not a latebricole, a relevant quote by Mia Love on the guiding principles of the

On this day in:
a. 1956 at the Summer Olympics held in Melbourne, Australia the Hungarians and Soviets engaged in a bloody water polo match in the backdrop of the Soviet’s invasion of Hungary to brutally crush the Hungarian Revolution with the Hungarians crushing the Soviets in the pool 4-0 in a shortened match due to the violence going on in the pool enroute to the Hungarians going on to win the Gold Medal.
b. 1957 in a moment caught on live television, the U.S. attempted to launch into orbit its Vanguard satellite 63 days after a gloating Soviet Union had successfully launched Sputnik 1; unfortunately for the U.S. after climbing 4 feet, the rocket exploded and toppled over in massive fireball.
c. 1973 Gerald Ford, to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Spiro Agnew due to his plea of no contest to a single count of tax evasion, was confirmed as Vice President by the House of Representatives by a vote of 387-35, joining the Senate that had on November 27 voted 92-3 to confirm him.
d.1998 Venezuela took its first step to the economic disaster facing the country by electing socialist Hugo Chavez as its president.
e. 2015 in the first elections in 17 years the failed socialist chickens came home to roost as the United Socialist Party of Maduro lost its majority in Parliament.
Reflections on the failure and bankruptcy of the Democratic Party which continues to move to the left: “The Democrats have come right out and said it: the power of the central government shall have no limits at all.” Mia Love She is right on point; if you have any doubt about the veracity of that statement and the effects look only to the disaster in Venezuela as a result of the one two failed socialist punch of Chavez and Maduro.
