Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 19, 2018 Clinton déjà vu as the clarion call is rising each day from leftist Blues to impeach Trump, an effort that will fail an expose them like it exposed the Reds when they impeached Clinton for obstruction of justice and perjury to massive losses in the midterms; Whoopi Goldberg had a meltdown of intolerance with Judge Pirro on The View demanding she leave the panel; San Francisco once that beautiful city on the bay has become a cesspool of human urine and feces causing tourists and conventions to stay away will have on the ballot a referendum to tax businesses to try to solve its homeless problem (watch the exodus if it passes); on the inane sanctuary city front, San Francisco has a referendum on the ballot to exclude felons and habitual criminals from the protection of sanctuary city status (what took these liberal idiots so long to realize felons need to be deported not released back in the community); the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands is in hot water for his executive order executed while Huricanes Irma and Maria were beargin down on the islands permitting the confiscation of firearms (talk about a clear violation of the 4th Amendment); actress Natalie Portman is drawing flack for her PETA video claiming that eating meat is akin to the Holocaust; on the nanny state front Baltimore has enacted an ordinance that bars sodas and sugary drinks on kids’ menus; on the migration front Hungary has joined the U.D. in withdrawing from the UN’s compact on migration; through July 18, 2018, 1548 people mostly of color have been shot by mostly people of color, of whom 248 have died (when will Chicago get serious about this carnage or is this the case of true racism as a Blue run city turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the slaughter of people of color by people of color?).
As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to the Glenn Miller Orchestra, factoids of interest for this day in history, the fact that you do not suffer from miasma emanating from the Swamp, a relevant quote from Ben Shapiro on the Detroit bankruptcy, secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like college graduations, birthdays, 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.

Reflections on the impact of flight attendants: “In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure margarine cups will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, Sorry!” Anon
