May 30, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


The debt ceiling deal is taking flak from both Progressives and the Freedom Caucus threatening to torpedo the bill in Committee and McCarthy’s Speakership (once again on the debt ceiling we are at the fiscal cliff looking to fall off because of Presidential MIA and Congressional delay in facing the issue—constituents should send fiddles and togas to Congress as like Rome we face crashing and burning. Elisabeth Holmes once the exalted first female self-made billionaire on her fraud has entered prison to start her 11 year sentence—she is lucky she will not have more time but her two innocent kids will suffer big time with their mother in prison. The Reds are moving to hold Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress for the FBI refusing to release the FD-1023 document that supposedly details a bribery scheme between Joe Biden and a foreign national (unfortunately as the contempt citations against AG Holder showed the DOJ will not take any action but the issue should be tidal of demands by voter to have the document released which if not will sink his reelection and if released and it contains even remotely what is alleged will sink it before it starts). Marines have to qualify each year on the shooting range but evidently not in hand to hand combat as 3 Marines were brutally punch and kicked by a mob of teens after one of them asked them to stop shooting fireworks on the beach near the San Clemente pier.  Bud Light’s sales due to its ill-fated partnership with TG Dylan Mulvaney are dropping faster than Biden’s popularity as the bleeding continues with sales down 29.5% for the week ended May 20 compared to the same period in 2022.  Target with its TG friendly clothing for kids has experienced the dubious distinction of having a song urging its boycott “Boycott Target” by  Rapper  Forgiato Blow  hitting the charts at number I even as the rapper is being shadow banned by pressure from Target over lost sales. AOC is having a bad time first she was subject to angry criticism at her town hall meeting with constituents having to resort to the Harris of laughing and showed her thin skin to criticism of Musk and Twitter lashing out at a clearly identified parody account that will make many people reading it laugh. Celtics were out 3’d in spades and were destroyed on their home court by the Heat 103-84 to play the Nuggets in the finals.
