October 6, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Palsy Daylrler

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 6, 2019 On the impeachment front, there are two anonymous whistleblowers one of who met with Schiff and most likely cooperated with his staff to prepare his hearsay laden letter whose identity and public testimony Senator Graham has demanded if the House does not vote on an impeachment inquiry (if the House does vote on impeachment the Senate should vote on the requirement that the Gang of 5 running for the presidency recluse themselves over a conflict even a second grader could understand); Senator Klobacher who prides herself with a false image of an objective, nonpartisan senator has had her aspirations for becoming president trump reality as she charges that Trump is a “global gangster”; whoever thought the election in 2020 would be a cake walk for Trump got hit with a dose of election reality as Biden leads in Wisconsin by 9 points (frightening that voters are opposed to a border wall which CBP and ICE on the front lines insist we need and are opposed to tariffs in the trade war with China); Biden may be leading in the polls in Wisconsin but he is in 4th place among Blue presidential candidates in fund raising during the 3rd quarter and will be heavily outspent as the race moves forward; Chris Wallace excoriated Blu Representative Val Demings for Pelosi doing a Texas two step in authorizing an impeachment inquiry without a House vote to protect Blues in districts that Trump won; Mexico has long since ceased to be the Amigo Land as a kidnapped police chief was found beheaded in Cancun and a National Geographic journalist was shot in the leg in Juarez with two drug dealers he was interviewing one of whom died; O’ Rourke got slammed by a person at one of his rally events in Phoenix whose mother was a legal immigrant over illegal immigration he supports; TSA picked up another black eye as did Delta when a woman without ID or a boarding pass somehow managed to board a Delta flight to Orlando and was caught only when she took another held by a ticketed passenger); in Chicago through October 5, 2019, 2160 have been shot of whom, 372 have died; in Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, 258 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?

 Reflections on cerebal palsy from the father whose child suffers from it: “My words to Anna, as we stood contemplating the Scuola Grande di San Marco, moments before entering Venice Hospital, came true: 'With a façade like that, I could even accept having a deformed child.
I accepted Tito's cerebral palsy.
I accepted it as if it were the most natural thing in the world. I accepted it with delight. I accepted it with enthusiasm. I accepted it with love.”― Diogo Mainardi, The Fall: A Father’s Memoir in 424 Steps
