Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For March 3, 2019 President Trump was in rare form for a two hour speech at CPAC really unloading on the Democrats, MSM, the Mueller witch-hunt, Cohen and especially AOC’s Green New Deal which he hopes the Blues back as it will make it easier for him to win in 2020 and touting his economic achievements but as predictable as the sunrise the talking heads echo chambers of the MSM blasted it even Cack News Network analyst Samatha Vinograd claiming his line to regain our heritage was Nazi-like and evoked images of gassing Jews (though she works for the Biden Institute of Public Policy, due to her hatred of Trump, she must have been suffering from an amnesia moment as her boss Joe Biden just those very same words in a speech in 2011); as one witch may soon jump on his broom after dropping his report, another witch in the form of Representative Nadler has targeted 60 individuals to probe obstruction of justice and Trump’s tax returns and has announced he will ignore the Mueller’s report as he has already made up his mind (the Nadler Rule is any elected official when it comes to tax returns forfeits the right of privacy that all individuals possess); AOC has been caught with her hands in the hypocrisy jar for using UBER and LYTF hundreds of times when a subway is only 128 feet from her office and flying hundreds of times and using Amtrak only 18 (so typical of the leftist elite’s do as I say not as I do); the open border to drugs that a wall would help reduce has claimed another victim Tristan Tierney the co-founder Square has died of a drug overdose (so much for the head in the sand divorced from reality rants of the Blues that there is no national emergency); SpaceX Dragon Capsule capable of carrying astronauts successfully docked with the International Space Station after being launched yesterday morning (how soon before we are chanting “Mars Here We Come.”); to confirm that China is an authoritarian regime, news that 23 million of its citizens have been banned from travel for accumulating too many social credit demerits like jaywalking, smoking on a train, walking a dog without a leash and taking drugs.

Reflections the hearing aids to treat hearing loss: “A hearing aid is an ultra-miniature electro-acoustical device that is always too large. “It must amplify sound a million times, but bring in no noise. It must operate, without failure, in a sea of perspiration, a cloud of talcum powder, or both.It is a product that one puts off buying for ten years after he needs it, but cannot do without it for thirty minutes when it has to be serviced.” Attributed to Samuel Lybarger and modified by Wayne Staab with his permission. Staab is a world recognized authority on hearing aids
