June 28, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


The troika of MSM censors, ABC, CBS and NBC have quickly moved from the damaging email of Hunter Biden threatening his Chinese Business Partner with retribution from his then VP father if their required $5.1 contribution was not immediately wired which it was a day or so later. McCarthy is in hot water over his statement on the Sunday Talk Shows that he was not sure if Trump was the strongest candidate to beat Biden, which he has subsequently walked back. The Governor of South Dakota Kristi Noem has no such uncertainly as after she indicated she wants to remain as governor that she believes that Trump has the best chance to recapture the White House. The mark on the left side of Biden’s face that raised questions was from the use of a CPAP machine for his sleep apnea which may be a contributing factor to his apparent lack of energy. Social Media censorship is alive and well 24/7 trying to protect Joe Biden’s reelection bid as Robert Kennedy, Jr. has announced that another interview of his with a New York Post reporter has been removed from YouTube. Madonna has been hospitalized and is in the ICU for a serious bacterial infection from which she is believed to fully recover. Another Biden gaffe made not once but twice at a fund raiser and secondly before a reporter that Putin is losing the war in Iraq where the overwhelming population of the U.S. knows Russia is not fighting there (How much more cognitive mental decline will voters have to see before they abandon Biden faster than rats leaving a sinking ship?). 3 cars on this poet’s favorite train the Coast Starlight were derailed after the train hit a vehicle on the tracks in Moorpark today 10 minutes before the first lunch sitting in the dining car (hope the cars can be re railed and no damage to the engine so the delay is not extensive enough to have to transfer passengers to buses to continue their journey

              June 28 Historical Events In Rhyme
              1.     On this day in 1997 in a rematch known as the “Sound and Fury”/Holyfield was defending his title against Tyson/And the first 2 rounds Holyfield won with punches flying in a flurry/In the 3rd Tyson bit off a chunk of Holyfield’s right ear and the fight appeared to be done/After a delay and clearance by ringside M.D./And against Tyson a 2 point ear biting penalty/The  round continued with a left ear bite/After the round ended and examination revealed a bite, the referee stopped the fight/Hollander awarded the win and Tyson lost/Later for his chomping he was hit with license suspension for 16 months and a $3 million fine to add to the cost.
              2.     On this day in 1987 during the war between Iran and Iraq/For the first time in history a civilian target was subject to chemical weapons attack/Iraqi jets on the town of Sardasht in two bombing passes/Killed 130 citizens and wounded 8,000 with deadly mustard gas.
              3.     On this day in 1978 SCOTUS in the Bakke case barred quotas in college admissions/ But upheld the concept that diversity of college admissions was a worthy and permitted educational mission/The court has another affirmative action case before it/and the bets are affirmative action may not be used in the decision to admit/Since in good schools there are more trying to be admitted than there is space/How can a school not use quotas but as one of the factors not use race?
             4.      On this night in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village owned by the Mafia as a gay bar/Police bribed so Inn on raids tipped off to move booze to nearby parked cars/But on this night police shut it down and patrons pushed out the door/soon bottles flying and all commands to disburse ignored/No one seriously injured and no arrests/Next night more gays and lesbians on the scene and for police a more dangerous test/Gays and lesbians  were celebrating the event/Never again would they feel the need to be to the closet sent/Ground Zero for Gay Rights and Gay Pride/So similar in terms of historic moment of Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery Bus ride.
            5.      On this day in 1919 the Treaty of Versailles was signed bringing World War I to an end/But sowing the seeds of World War II into the ground send/Draconian Reparations on Germany imposed/Made even more unbearable as the world would soon be gripped in the Great Depression woos/Fertile grounds for Hitler and Mussolini to bloom/Far too soon the world was quick marching to World War II’s deadly doom.
            Famous Quotes on the Stonewall Inn Riots
            Seymour Pine, Deputy Inspector, Morals Division, NYPD: There were no instructions except: put them out of business. The first police officer that came in with our group said, 'The place is under arrest. When you exit, have some identification and it'll be over in a short time.' This time they said, 'We're not going.' That's it. 'We're not going.' We didn't have the manpower, and the manpower for the other side was coming like it was a real war. And that's what it was, it was a war.
          Doric Wilson Stonewall Inn Patron: “That's what happened Stonewall night to a lot of people. We went, 'Oh my God. I am not alone, there are other people that feel exactly the same way.'”  
           John O'Brien Stonewall Inn Patron: In the Civil Rights Movement, we ran from the police, in the peace movement, we ran from the police. That night, the police ran from us, the lowliest of the low. And it was fantastic.
