Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 13, 2019 Hunter caught with his hand twice in the quid pro quo cookie jar once in Ukraine and the other in China came to his senses and resigned from his board position on the $1.5 billion Chinese funds that in all likelihood received money from investors due to Biden’s lead among Blues and a perception by the Chinese he would win; Americans really should learn the answer of the involvement of Joe Biden seeing that his son was not investigated in his capacity as a consultant to a Ukraine energy company; AOC at another climate change conference was playing the guilt trip on those who contest climate change in tears that she would not bring a child into the world only to have him or her die too soon due to climate change (calendar to talk to her in around 18 years when her time to give birth has passed and see what her new predictions on the Earth’s demise are); Schiff under growing attacks on his lying and deception tried a mea culpa admitting he should have been more transparent on the whistleblower (future acts and deceptions will reveal if this leopard has changed spots); while the open border fanatics in the Blue party fiddle as the illegals try to flood into this country, Mexico is doe far more for our security that the Blues are trying to prevent as Mexico stops a caravan of illegals from Africa and Central America; on the drug war front, the cartels are ramping up the flow of meth across our Southern Border, the cartels have stepped up their production of meth and are are smuggling it across our borders in historically high numbers while Blues have their heads in the sand; on the illegal alien front Trump’s administration is trying 24/7 to protect all citizens regardless of race or gender from the flood of illegal aliens and ICE arrested Domingo Ramirez-Cayente, an illegal deported in 2010 who returned illegally and shot to death a transgender in Dallas last month:
hopefully another potential Willie Horton moment to pin on the
open border Blues as this scumbag posted bond and without a requirement of ankle
monitoring device, no no one’s surprise, has fled and is on the lose; Turkey is
continuing its advance into Turkey amidst news that its air strikes targeting journalists
and civilians have killed 9 people while ISIS fighters are escaping Kurdish
captivity; this mess gets worse as Syria is advancing its forces to its border
with Turkey and one could fear clashes between Syrian and Turkish forces with a
very real possibility that Russians will get involved against Turkey; in Chicago
be prepared not to ask please pass the mashed potato but rather please pass the
Glock as 4 people eating dinner were by an acquaintance shot and killed and
Mayor Lightfoot when it comes to preventing CPD from cooperating with DHS is ordering
a heavy foot on the noncooperation gas; in Chicago through October 12, 2019, 2210
have been shot, of whom, 382 have died, ending the miracle of no deaths on the 11th
; in Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, 270 have been murdered
in Baltimore (when will Chicago and Baltimore get serious abo ut 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. International Day for Disaster Reduction—created by the General Assembly in 2009 to promote a global culture of natural disaster reduction, including prevention, mitigation and preparedness.
2. Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day—promoting awareness of and the need to raise funds to find a treatment for a disease that affects 2,000,000 women a year and is the most common form of cancer that when it reaches Stage 4, metastasizing to other organs, it is incredibly deadly.
3. 1960 Number One Song— the number one song in 1960 on this day on a run of 1 week in the position was “Mr. Custer” by Larry Verne. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXRarvh-BxQ Verne had this song as his only hit and in 1963 retired to build movie sets for 35 years until Mr. Custer sent him on his last ride to die of Alzheimer ’s disease on October 8, 2013 at the age of 77.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “prelect” which means to lecture which politicians are prone to do to us instead of listening.
5. Social Unjustice—celebrating or bemoaning the birth on this day in 1989 of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who was elected in 2018 as the youngest female youngest female to take a seat in Congress. Her leftist or socialist policies and climate change predictions have driven the Blue party further to the left and away from the center than it has ever been and has energized the Reds more so than the Botox Queen Nancy Pelosi could ever do.

a. 1775 the predecessor to the United States Navy, the Continental Navy, was established.

Reflections on surviving after the crash of Flight 571 in the Andes and after hearing that the search for their plane had been terminated after 11 days: “The others who had clustered around Roy, upon hearing the news, began to sob and pray, all except [Nando] Parrado, who looked calmly up at the mountains which rose to the west. Gustavo [Coco] Nicolich came out of the aircraft and, seeing their faces, knew what they had heard… [Nicolich] climbed through the hole in the wall of suitcases and rugby shirts, crouched at the mouth of the dim tunnel, and looked at the mournful faces which were turned towards him. 'Hey boys,' he shouted, 'there's some good news! We just heard on the radio. They've called off the search.' Inside the crowded aircraft there was silence. As the hopelessness of their predicament enveloped them, they wept. 'Why the hell is that good news?' Paez shouted angrily at Nicolich. 'Because it means,' [Nicolich] said, 'that we're going to get out of here on our own.' The courage of this one boy prevented a flood of total despair.“ Piers Paul Reid, Alive, The Story Of The Andes Survivors.umb before rescue on December 2 Please enjoy the poems on events of interest on my twitter account below (if you like them, retweet and follow me) and follow my blogs.
