Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 19, 2019 Day three of the Lying Schiff Impeachment Hearings with the real reason for the impeachment recently express by very early impeachment zealot Al Green, “We have to impeach him to prevent him from being reelected (in Schiff’s and Pelosi’s world voters do not count and cannot be trusted only the elite Blues who know what’s best for us); fireworks today as Vindaman testified that Trump call was inappropriate in terms of national security (inappropriate not treason or a high crime or misdemeanor) but also claimed the deletion of Burisma in the transcript was insignificant as Blues have maintained (Vindaman came close to identifying the whistleblower whom many Reds believe is a biased never Trumper but was prevented by Schiff); Trump never to sit idly by when attacked lambasted Pelosi for sitting on the job creating replacement to the job killing NAFTA, tge USMCA; maybe it is the nature of those accused of quid pro quo that both sides often deny its existence but in this circus of prejudgment by Blues, denials by both Trump and the Ukraine President are ignored by the Blues; in a move that might be construed as biting the hand that feeds you, several Blue candidates for president are demanding NBC clean up its toxic sexist environment before the next debate, ignoring the fact that if the MSM, including NBC had a shred of journalistic integrity, most of the wanna-bes would have dropped out due to being exposed for their lack of ability and ideas); shifting from the political circus to the athletic circus, Colin Kaepernick’s workout on Saturday was termed a circus and he finds himself no closer to signing on with a NFL team; hearings in the afternoon on impeachment have started with Ambassador Volker testifying that no one asked him to bribe or extort anyone and that he did not know that requests to investigate Burisma were tantamount to investigating Biden; HRC once again shows that she is suffering for 2016 election delusion as she thinks she must be in the Oval Office as opposed to Trump as she calls for Stephen Miller’s removal as a White House Adviser to President Trump; in Chicago with a new interim police chief as of November 17, 2019, 2473 have been shot, of whom, 419 have died; Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 306 have been murdered (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. Women’s Entrepreneurship Day—created in 2014 to promote recognition of female entrepreneurs and create awareness of the skills and resources needed to be a successful entrepreneur.
2. International Mens Day—conceived in 1992 by Thomas Oaster to celebrate boys’ and mens’ achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care and in the era of “toxic masculinity” men are often hit with a refreshing and positive counterbalance.
3. 1987 Number 1 Number One Song— the number one song in 1987 on this day on a run of 2 weeks in the position was “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6Q3mHyzn78 Tiffany took a hiatus of 4 years from singing from 1995-1999 but at 48 is still performing.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “protanopia” which means color-blindness insensitivity to red which is a defect Republicans hope most voters do not possess after enduring the circus of impeachment proceedings.
5. Pinned Too Early--celebrating the birthday on this day in 1960 of Miss Elizabeth, noted female professional wrestler and managed who was pinned permanently from a bout of pain killers and vodka on May 1, 2003.
On this day in:
a. 1959 in a time to correct a big mistake moment, the Ford Motor Company announced the discontinuance of the Edsel.
b. 1985 Pennzoil won a $10.53 billion verdict against Texaco for inducing the Getty Oil Company to breach its agreement to sell to Pennzoil; the verdict was the largest civil verdict in U.S. history.
c. 1998 the House began impeachment proceedings of President Clinton in proceedings far different from the circus Schiff and Pelolsi are overseeing.
d. 2004 in what became known as the Malice at the Palace in the closing seconds of a game between the Detroit Pistons and the Indiana Pacers with the Pistons with a double digit lead Ron Artest fouled the Piston center during a lay up which prompted a push back and then all hell broke loose with fans and players fighting each other and when the dust had cleared and the game ended by the mini riot, Artest for going into the stands and attacking fans was suspended for 86 games (rest of season) and Stephen Jackson for 30.
e. 2006 Nintendo’s video game play console with motion control, the Wii, was released to the gaming public.
Reflections from a successful female entrepreneur on women’s entrepreneurship: ““Dear optimist, pessimist, and realist – while you guys were busy arguing about the glass of wine, I drank it! Sincerely, the opportunist!” Lori Griner, one of the successful sharks.
