April 4, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not 404 Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For April 4, 2019 The number of women complaining about Biden’s inappropriate touching has risen to 7; on the Congressional front, Nadler, who is about as partisan as a poisonous adler is a pathetic hypocrite with his subpoenas on the Mueller Report when he fought tooth and nail against Starr for secrecy to prevail (hate to attack ad hominem but this biased little hack merits the condemnation of Randy Newman in his song “Short People”; the Chicago Police Union has voted no confidence against biased State’s Attorney Kim Foxx;   the House moving full speed ahead to investigate not legislate has demanded from the IRS 6 years of Trump’s tax returns, totally ignoring the need to legislate an end to the border crisis prompted by the asylum scam; AOC despite all her bobbing and weaving seems to be running into a web of ethical and FEC violations in her campaign while she sanctimoniously rails against campaign spending abuse (when will the déjà vu of McCarthyism rejection stop this idiot in her tracks?); Louis Farrakhan despite all his anti-American and anti-Semitic hate rants still has a Twitter non banned account is on the rant parade demanding a separate state for blacks and insinuating he is Jesus (what an absolute idiot but the poster child of bias in social media of allowing radical hateful left yet banning conservative thought); Jeff and McKenzie Bezos have come to an amicable divorce settlement; Tim Ryan, a rare and perhaps endangered Blue centrist who had the audacity to challenge Nancy Pelosi has thrown his hat into the ring to run for president; a judge in New Jersey who displayed total ignorance and lack of empathy to a rape victim seeking a restraining order against an attempted rapist by advising her to close her legs has been suspended without pay for three months; in a glaring example of why we have a flood of illegals lured by the promise of higher wages and lifestyle and why we must have e-verify and a logical guest worker program, ICE agents raided the offices of cell phone repair company CVE in Texas and arrested 280 illegals working there (hopefully they will be quickly deported and the company will be fined big time); Australia has moved to criminalize the failure of social media to remove violent content like the mosque shootings in New Zealand from the internet; as of April 3, 2019 452 people have been shot in Chicago of whom 82 have died (what makes the Smollett case so frustrating is that it forced the city of Chicago to allocate scarce detective resources when in only 9% of the shootings resulting in murder have a suspect being charged this year).
       As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to the Bee Gees, factoids of interest for this day in history, the fact that you are the recipient of an act of a palpetbraton; and  a relevant quote from Martin Jacques on NATO, 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.
1. 404 Day—created to protest the fact that a web server has been contacted but failed to find the information requested or more likely which is why there is a protest the information on the requested site is subject to government or social media censorship. 404 is used since it represents the 4th day of the 4th month.
2. Hug a Newsperson Day—a holiday that should commemorate a vigorous free, objective press by expressing appreciation when unfortunately the reality is that we have a MSM obsessed with advocacy and anti-Trump bias.
3. 1978 Number One Song—the number one song on this day in 1978 on a run of 8 weeks in that position was “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees. Here is a recording of the song:  
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day as we move from words beginning with “o” to words beginning with “p” is “palpetbraton” which means winking an act that all of us should enjoy when an attractive person sends one our way.
5. Drugs on the Liability Side of the Ledger—celebrating the birthday on this day in 1979 of Australian born actor Heath Ledger who received an Academy Award Nomination for Brobeck Mountain but who at a way too young age of 28 died of an accidental drug overdose on January 22, 2008.
       On this day in:                                        
a. 1949 eleven nations signed the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to create NATO which has expanded and is still growing strong and with Trump’s urging is back on track to expanding member nation’s expenditures on defense to deter Russia.   
b. 1973 the Twin Towers began their 18 year reign before being destroy on 9/11 at the World Trade Center by being inaugurated.
c. 1975 Microsoft was founded as a partnership between Paul Allen and Bill Gates in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
d. 1984 President Ronald Reagan called for an international ban on chemical weapons.
e. 2009 France came to its senses and returned to be part of NATO.  
        Reflections on NATO: “Following the end of the Cold War, there was much discussion concerning the point of NATO. In the event, it was reinvented as a means of reducing Russia's reach on its western frontiers and seeking to isolate it. Its former East European client states were admitted to NATO, as were the Baltic states.” Martin Jacques, noted British author and commentator.
