June 5, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


Christopher Wray trying to dodge a contempt of Congress citation brought the FD-1023 document which supposedly alleges Joe Biden in a $5 million bribery scheme with a foreign national for Chairman Comer and Ranking Member Raskin to review in a secure reviewing facility which did not in Comer’s opinion comply with the subpoena so Comer will initiate contempt proceedings. Tim Scott who does not believe in systemic racism but too much systemic victimhood among blacks went to the leftist Lion’s Den on the Blues—The View to castigate Goldberg and Stormy for their views in a respectful manner. Missouri State University is under fire for a business bootcamp for only  BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color) and females but white males need not apply. ESPN personality Stephen Smith who has blasted Ron De Santis as the stupidest man on Earth is castigating Blues supporting Biden for President because the country does not need an 82 year old president and suggested Michelle Obama, Hakeem Jefferies and even a third attempt by Hillary Clinton. As Elon Musk warns it is only a question of time before Target faces shareholder suits over stock price losses over its marketing decisions, news coming out that it has contributed to NDN Collective that wants to close Mt. Rushmore National Park, demilitarize the military  and sanction Israel. A 2017 interview with the CEO of BlackRock Fink admitted that it would force companies to meet DEI goals or compensation would be impacted.
Stanford achieved another “pyrrhic victory” due to the fact that Sooners’ Women Softball team has slaughtered opponents by huge scores and Stanford lost first 2-0 to the Sooners and then 4-2 after an early lead due to a 9th inning double scoring 2 runs. (hopefully Stanford can recruit another Nisare Canady like pitcher to give her some rest).

              Word of the Day: the word of the day is “antibromic” which means eliminating offensive odors which if your nose could speak it would be saying “Thank you.”                                   Song of the Day:  The number 1 song on this day in 1972 was “I’ll Take You There ” by The Staple Singers on a run of 1 week to share with 22 other songs achieving number 1 ranking, while 18 acts, including The Staple Singers number one hit status for the first time.

               June 5 “Playing Notes Trump Counting Beans”: Kenneth Gorelick, better known to his fans as Kenny G. a noted saxophone player, was   born on this day in 1956. He majored in accounting at the University of Washington but chose not to become a C.P.A. but instead launched a very successful music career, selling over 75 million records and proving that playing a saxophone does wonders for your golf grip to maintain his scratch golfer handicap.
                June 5 Historical Events In Rhyme
                1.     On this day in 1998 at GM’s Flint Plant to metal stamp/3,800 workers went on strike to future production cramp/Quickly to an East Delphi spark plug, odometer, instrument panel like a wave not a ripple/thousands being laid off and if not solved 31 plants would shut down to GM cripple/With plates full of animosity and distrust this looked like a long strike/Clinton was urging the parties to the voices of animosity take a hike/To everyone’s relief/Strike settled in 54 days to end workers’ and GM’s suffering grief.
                2.     On this day in 1989 a Chinese man was photographed in Tiananmen Square/Stopped for 30 minutes a column of 4 tanks that were proceeding to the protestors there/No weapons only holding 2 grocery bags/What courage and bravery that in the face of death did not sag/His name and fate are not known/But knowing the CCP a very good chance the back of his head off by a bullet was blown. 
                3.     On this day in 1984 Prime Minister Indira Gandhi  authorized the Indian military to invade the Golden Temple, the Sikh religion’s holiest sites/the Punjab insurgents located there put up an heroic outnumbered fight/The temple was occupied but the repercussions like a tsunami soon spread/Sikhs deserted from the army in droves and on October 31, 1984 Indira Gandhi by her 2 Sikh bodyguards was shot dead.
               4.      On this day in 1981 officials in Los Angeles reported 5 deaths from a pneumonia quite rare/Later confirmed that the deadly disease AIDS had started there/Sadly because it was thought only gay sex would spread the disease the health response was not as quick/Later proved that all sex with any infected persons could cause death after making the infected very sick.
              5.      On this day in 1968 when many Americans longed for the days of Camelot/Robert Kennedy after winning the Blue California primary was by Sirhan Sirhan shot/Shot in the head he had no survival chance/He soon died and with him the dreams of another Camelot could not advance.
                 Famous Quotes: Jeff Widener, the AP photographer who took the photos of the Tank Man stopping a column of tanks in an interview with AP:  “The United States and European countries have made mistakes throughout history and they've reconciled those problems. I think it's time for China to move forward and just come clean on what happened, report to the family members what happened to their loved ones so that they can put this to rest. I think that's the right, decent thing to do.” Sadly the decent thing to do for the Chinese Communist Party is the least likely to occur
