Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 12, 2019 Hopefully America skipped the Blues’ debate to watch a nail biting game between the Buccaneers and the Panthers and missed Biden’s best debate dismissing Castro’s blatant attack on his memory; Mayor Pete whose Alfred E. Neuman’s look must be going down to defeat made idiotic claim that Trump supporters are racist and the illegal alien supporter queen lashed out at Trump as being a Wizard of Oz small dude on trade war with China (what does she have to offer? 0); Maher surprisingly is lambasting Blues for going too far to the left and killing progressive values; while the DOJ is recommending Andrew McCabe be prosecuted it was revealed that disgraced James Clapper was pulling out all stops to extol the “good work” and “virtues” of McCabe (take perjurer Clapper and toss his words of praise into a crapper); Andrew Yang’s policies may be too the left but on debate timing he is very deft complaining that the third debate conflicts with the Panthers and Buccaneers (Blues must believe that all football fans are deplorables and would never vote Blue); the pit viper snake adder, Nadler has his Judiciary Committee voting on the rules for Trump’s impeachment as the Reds rise to the challenge and dare the Blues to impeach (the memory of in re Clinton impeachment seems to have been lost on these idiots); Homan who has spent his life trying to from illegals keep us secure was lambasted by Blues claiming he is a heartless bigot without any basis other than their craven quest for sound bites; as search warrants were served on the operators of the MV Conception, a preliminary report issued by the NTSB indicated that the boat did not have a required watchman awake who might have given the divers a chance of survival as all crew members were asleep; in a career ending moment a sightseeing boat on the Hudson River collided with the USS Slater, a WWII destroyer, while docking but fortunately no one was seriously injured but the boat is out of the sightseeing business until the reason for the collision is determined; while Warren was advocating the decriminalization of illegal border crossing Joy Behar was spicing the race up by ranting her support for Warren and wanting her to put Sanders in a head lock; in the chicken wars with Chick-Fil-A, Popeyes BYOB has struck out as most want no bottles brought in or having to bring your own bun; just when you thought the only hazard we face is vapers getting ill or dying from vaping, news out that a woman who bought Pond’s face cream from Mexico which may have been adulterated with mercury is comatose after using it; in Chicago through September 11, 2019, 1967 have been shot of whom 332 have died and in Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, 242 have been murdered in Baltimore (when will Chicago and Baltimore 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 and when will the left focus on the problem of color on color shootings in Blue run cities which have been more deadly and more numerous than random mass shootings?

1. National Day of Encouragement—created in 2007 to promote the use of encouragement as a means to motivate students and people to excel in their endeavors.
2. National Policewoman Day—celebrating the accomplishments of women in law enforcement who constitute 10 percent of the members of police forces and who have proven that a woman’s touch in bringing a criminal to justice is just as if not more so effective than a male officer.
3. 2017 Number One Song— the number one song in 2017 on a long run of 16 weeks in that position was “Despicito” by the Luis Founsi and Daddy Yankee feat. Justin Bieber. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72UO0v5ESUo.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “polyphiloprogenitive” which means very imaginative which defines the Blues in their impeachment inquiry to a tee.

Reflections on 9/11: “With almost no time to decide, [your loved ones] gave the entire country an incalculable gift. They saved the Capitol from attack. They saved God knows how many lives. They saved the terrorists from claiming the symbolic victory of smashing the center of American government. … They allowed us to survive as a country that could fight terror and still maintain liberty and still welcome people from all over the world from every religion and race and culture as long as they shared our values, because ordinary people given no time at all to decide did the right thing.”
—President Bill Clinton in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in 2011
