June 27, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


Another poll in New Hampshire has Trump still leading  De Santis by an increasing lead to 47 to 19 % with Christie, Haley, and Scott all in single digits with Biden beating both Trump and De Santis 49 to 40% but 70% including 50% of Blues are concerned about Biden’s age compared to 34% concerned over Trump’s age. In the Washington Press Conference briefing by Karine Jean-Pierre was in a real snit fit after Simon Ateba of Todays News Africa accused her of discriminating against him causing her to lash out and threaten to end the briefing which exchange was edited out of the streaming which the White House blamed on a technical glitch as opposed to an orchestrated act. The heavy hand of censorship by one of the leading members of the MSM-the NYT was revealed when it buried to page 21 the whistleblower’s allegation that the attorney David Weiss wanted to bring more serious tax fraud cases against Hunter Biden but was rebuffed by the DOJ. Ryan Seacrest has been named as Pat Sajak’s replacement on Wheel of Fortune when Sajak retires next year. The White House  visitor logs despite Biden’s vow to be the most transparent administration in history are full of holes when it comes to Hunter and Biden’s Chief of Staff Ron Klein. Harrison Ford as a very spry 80 year old will be appearing in the 5th and last Indiana Jones film, Dial of Destiny, revealed that Tom Selleck was the first choice but under contract for a TV series he could not break. In California you can’t be a gay if you are a Red as Blues in the California Senate walked out when Reds honored Richard Grenell as the first openly gay Cabinet member. New York State Attorney, Leticia James whose main passion is to put Trump and family members in jail had her attempt to do the same with Ivanka Trump rebuffed due to the statute of limitations.
