Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 30, 2019 While MSM continues 24/7 to falsely brand Trump as a racist, Fox has people on the street in Baltimore asking residents to weigh in on the issues in the their city which include rampant corruption at all levels of government, drugs and crime, and rats (if Cummings will not investigate the corruption in this Blue run city, Barr at the DOJ should as Reds and Indies should watch a growing hysteria among Blues as Trump continues his gain among blacks and Baltimore continues to expose Blue Big City failures) ; Ibraheem Samirah, a Virginia legislator disrupted Trump’s speech in Roanoke with an anti-Trump placard standing in front of the podium while he was speaking (Ibraheem is a Palestinian-American with a history of disgusting anti-Semite remarks about Israel which he in many cases to try to hide his feelings has deleted); the advertisers who advertise on CNN must be getting tired of the combination of falling ratings from already abysmal levels and the steady stream of cack while MSNBC advertisers must have the same feelings as Fox continues to crush them in all viewing segments showing “Fair and Balanced” trumps mostly slanted biased cack every time (when will they pull the plug or at minimum demand reduction in the ad fees charged by MSNBC?); the Blues hold their second round of presidential debates which may be watched by few people due to the DNC’s move to ban Fox from the debates (will be interesting to see how much Blues go at each other and if Warren and Sanders try to take each other out while the nation awaits the next night’s debate which may be a make or break mement of Biden as he faces off against a group the includes Booker and his nemesis Harris); on the migration front, a back black seagull flew from Britain to Spain to breed, covering over 500 miles in seven days; on the economic front, the Fed is prepared to cut interest rates for the first time in a decade; in another reason why Trump despises California which provides that no one in a primary election may be placed on a primary ballot unless he or her tax returns have been filed (a sure loser with respect to federal elections which even in the liberal 9th Circuit will be shot down but so typical of Newsom’s focus on petty distractions as opposed to our open border, illegal alien crime and the blight of homeless and drugs; never underestimate the drive of parents whose kids are not admitted to schools with admit blind policies to scam financial aid by transferring their kids to a legal guardian to avoid counting income of parents (judges must have a blind eye to this scam but it stinks if it results in kids who really need aid being deprived because of the scam); the first round of the second round of the Blue debate ended today with a lot of bickering between and a flurry of cost claims of their leftist programs that will keep fact checkers occupied for weeks and a sense of desperation from the second tier Blue candidates; in Chicago through July 29, 2019, 1566 people mostly of color have been shot by mostly people of color, 269 of whom have died, a fraction of those dead from murders in Cape Town, South Africa but barely leading the 196 murdered in Baltimore (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?)

Reflections on the rats in Baltimore: “The Baltimore rat problem President Donald Trump tweeted about Saturday is apparently so extensive that it was the subject of a documentary two years ago.
The president’s tweets took aim at Democratic Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, who has been very critical of the administration’s immigration and migrant detention policies, calling his home district in Baltimore “rodent infested.”
The Baltimore Sun’s editorial board published a scathing op-ed later in the day that simultaneously waved off the city’s rat problem while calling Trump a rat. ‘Better to have a few rats than to be one,’ blared the headline.
But according to earlier reports from The Baltimore Sun, that rat problem is actually quite a bit more extensive than the editorial board implied.” Daily Caller L.A. and Newsom must be breathing a sigh of relief as attention to their rat and rodent infestation problem has be shadowed by the rats and rodents in Baltimore
