October 19, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Mammography Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 19, 2018 Ocasio-Cortez the new darling on the socialist  left has failed to endorse Bernie Sanders in his quest for a presidential run in 2020; Beto O’Rourke in a close race with Senator Ted Cruz has come out with a claim that he would vote yes for impeachment of President Trump (hopefully a wakeup call for Reds to come to the polls to vote against this despicable leftist); the caravan from Honduras of illegal aliens has swelled to 4,000 as Mexico has asked the UN for help in setting up refugee camps on its southern border to sort out refugee asylum claims (if this nonsense is not stopped watch for a flood of hundreds of thousands to try to cross into this nation); USC is in the headlines not over its football program but the fact that over 100 female students have sued the university over sexual misconduct of its gynecologist in its student health program; ICE the agency the left wants to abolish announced it had captured its most wanted fugitive in Louisiana  wanted for child abuse along with another 98 illegal alien criminals many of whom had been previously deported (any Blue who voted against Kate’s Law deserves a no vote for protecting these scumbags); ultra leftist late night show host Jimmy Kimmel trolled New York residents with a fallacious claim that the Lincoln Center was going to be renamed after Trump; on the pedophile abuse front the feds have announced an investigation of the Catholic Church in Pennsylvania over sexual abuse charges of minors; on the Charlie is a criminal front, Starkist has plead guilty to price fixing to keep the price of canned tuna high; Emanuel’s announcement that he will not seek reelection has not curbed the gun violence as through October 17, 2018, 2446 people mostly of color have been shot by mostly people of color, of whom 404 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 mostly people of color by mostly people of color).
        As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Maroon 5, factoids of interest for this day in history, the fact that you are not guilty of napotation and a relevant quote from Elizabeth Hurley on breast cancer, 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. You need only contact me for details.

4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day as we move from words beginning with “m” to words beginning with “n” is “nepotation” which means riotous behavior which is something we are seeing more and more of from the left.
5. Children’s Crusader Into Incest—celebrating the birth on this day in 1936 of James Bevel, a minister who was active with Martin Luther King  in the Civil Rights Movement but who was convicted of having incest with one of his daughters.

Reflections on breast cancer: “Breast cancer is being detected at an earlier, more treatable stage these days, largely because women are taking more preventive measures, like self-exams and regular mammograms. And treatment is getting better too.” Elizabeth
Hurley, noted British actress.
