June 14, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Blood DaylBkue

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 14, 2019 US Navy video shows an Iranian patrol boat removing an unexploded mine from one of the damaged tankers which calls into question Iran’s pathetic denial of any responsibility for the damage to two tankers (the main question is what appropriate military response will the U.S. implement as a result of this rogue nation’s aggression against world commerce?); China already ready to take advantage of a situation adverse to the U.S. in meeting with the Supreme Leader of Iran vowed to closer ties with that rogue nation; Newton, Massachusetts District Court Judge Shelley Richmond who has been charged with obstruction of justice for spiriting illegals out the back door of her courtroom to avoid apprehension by ICE has racked up over $127,000 in taxpayer funded legal fees to defend her (total disgrace to the judiciary who should have resigned and if founded guilty be disbarred); Juan de Castro in a town hall on Fox slammed Trump for failing to solve the border crisis ignoring the fact that his party has denied proper funding for the border patrol and border security (so typical of the hypocrisy that plagues him and other Blue wanna-bes wanting to be president); the House is going to study the impact of slavery on blacks today as it moves toward a consideration of reparations (at least when we righted the wrong inflected on interning Japanese-Americans during World War II to those actually interned which is not possible here as all slaves and their grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren are all most like dead); Warren who has introduced legislation that will put her in first place in the give-away the most race as she has pulled away from Sanders in the California primary; 20 out of the 23 Blue candidates made the cut for the first debate. including to everyone’s surprise Bill De Blasio who is polling 0 % in Iowa and who has no business running given his record in NYC; Governor Cuomo signed a bill elimination exemptions for religious beliefs to prevent vaccinations; through June 12, 2019 1086 people  have been shot in Chicago of whom 204 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).

1. World Blood Day—created by the World Health Organization in 2004 to promote awareness of the need to donate blood and means to insure the safety of donated blood.                                      
 2. Flag Day—commemorating the adoption on this day by the Continental Congress of the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States and authorized by President Wilson’s presidential proclamation in 1916. 
 3. 1945 Number One Song—the number one song on this day in 1945 for 9 weeks in that position was “Sentimental Journey” by Les Brown and his Orchestra with Doris Day on vocals. Here is a recording of the song: Les Brown’s journey ended on January 4, 2001 with lung cancer and Doris Day’s sentimental journey ended on May 13, 2019 at 97. 
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 “percoct” which well-done or overcooked which describes a way to ruin a good steak.
5. Headwinds and Fake News Central—celebrating the birth on this day of 1946 of President Donald J. Trump who has battled Fake News from the MSM and Resistance from the Blues who have been obsessed with the illusion of Russian delusion and are MIA with dealing with the issues like job security and immigration that are so important to Americans.
