December 9, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not International Anti-Corruption Day0

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 9, 2019 The American people were exposed to the Democratic equivalent of Where’s Waldo as Where’s Adam appeared not before the Judiciary Committee to present the Intel Committee’s finding s but instead sent its biased legal mouthpiece who has a history of contributions to the Blues and anti-Trump tweets (could it me that Lying Adam Schiff would not appear because he would exposed himself to perjury charges on questions on his involvement with the “whistle blower”); total theater with lawyers not witnesses making arguments as opposed to factual statements that are not evidence all while the IG’s Report was issued detailing 17 major lapses of judgment in the FISA applications at the same time Durham and Barr appear to be at odds with his conclusion that no political bias was found (watch for spin on both sides which may obfuscate that which is very wrong, governmental officials spying on a political campaign and conspiring to defeat it); grasping for straws Blues are expected to announce two Articles of Impeachment-abuse of power and obstruction of justice for essentially asserting executive privilege, an assertion the Blues are not taking to court; Michelle Obama maybe because in her gardens is not sniffing pesticides has confided to Jenna Bush in an interview that the impeachment proceedings against Trump are surreal and expressed a hope the divisiveness among Americans would end; when it comes to Saudi Muslims we know learn tread on pins and needles is the game as a Pensacola instructor gave the deadly Saudi shooter a nickname “Porn Stash”; not sure whether the acts of Culpeper County in Virginia will rise to the level of West Virginia’s revolt against the state at the start of the Civil War, but the county has passed an ordinance to declare it a 2nd Amendment County as the sheriff vows to deputize citizens to enable them to carry fire arms;  in Chicago with a new interim police chief now having to replace a fired police chief as of December 8, 2019, 2590 have been shot, of whom, 440 have died as the major miracle of no deaths in three days ended on the 8th; Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 321 have been murdered, a number which has passed all of 2014’s death and all of 2016’s yearly total of 318 fatalities but 2017’s record of 342 looks like it won’t be broken (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?).
