March 31, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


It may seem like the politicized D.A. Bragg pot calling the kettle black but Bragg has come out swinging defending his decision to indict a notable ham sandwich and blasting Reds for “unlawful political interference” with the “judicial process.” Pelosi is being roasted for her idiotic tweet that Trump will have his to prove his innocence which is how the system works in the Axis of Evil but not here—D.A.’s burden. Former FBI weighed in on the indictment with a simple tweet “It has been a good day”  probably thinking it will add to the sales of his book A Higher Calling. While Nashville grieves and police continue their investigation into the mass shooting by transgender Audrey (Aiden), MSM censorship by omission is alive and well at CBS where staffers have been instructed in reporting on the shooting not to use the term transgender. NCAA Women’s March Madness Semifinals are tonight, sadly without Stanford Women playing.
