NATION APATHETIC ABOUT POLITICIZED GRAMMY’S
This year’s Grammy Awards were an apt reflection of much of today’s popular music: all style and no substance.
Viewership of this year’s Grammy Awards Snoop Dogg and pony show suffered a 24 percent decline in viewership and is it any wonder? A portion of the show founded to honor excellence in music recordings wasted its time airing semi-famous music artists reading excerpts from a Trump-trashing book that is losing credibility with each passing day.
Even MSNBC morning show diva Mika Brzezinski cut a segment short with Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff for fear that the manure he’s been shoveling might get on her shoes.
In fairness to Wolff though, it’s hard to distinguish between the manure he’s published in Fire and Fury and the cow paddies that Mike and co-host Joe Scarborough toss on the airwaves every weekday morning on their show Morning Joe.
At this year’s Grammy’s music artists like John Legend, Snoop Dogg, and Cher were pre-recorded reading book excerpts in prime time in front of a national television audience.
And for those viewers who haven’t had enough of Hillary Clinton, voila – there she was again in the spotlight she so sorely craves, reading a lame excerpt about her 2016 opponent who won the presidency she would try to steal by FISA hook or FBI crooks.
Geez, wonder why people didn’t want to tune into the woman William Safire once called “a congenital liar” reading from Michael Wolff’s book of lies? Would have been better to let sleeping dogs lie – so to speak.
Maybe they wanted to see if Snoop Dogg could read anything without using words like bi%#$, as$%#$%, fu&* or nig$%@.
Next year maybe they’ll do a spelling bee at the Grammy’s or a math competition so they can learn how alienating half of the population that voted for Trump doesn’t add up to helping sell more music.
Also Monday FBI Deputy Director Andrew “FISA Fiend” McCabe was escorted out of FBI headquarters a day after FBI Director Christopher Wray reviewed the inspector general’s report detailing McCabe’s dual roles in the Hillary Clinton email investigation and purported collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
Russian agents Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale both declined comment. For more click here.
TRUMP EARNS “A” FOR SPEECH, DEMS “D” FOR DEPLORABLE BEHAVIOR
Tuesday night President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union address. During his 1 hour and 20 minute address the president spoke about the importance of faith and family, love of country, unity, bipartisanship and rediscovering the American way.
On average Republicans gave his remarks an “A,” Independents an “A-“, and Democrats a “C.” For more on Tuesday’s State of the Union click here.
One observation on Democrat’s activities during the president’s speech was reported by the London Daily Mail. Brenda Lawrence (D-MI), was caught on camera playing match-three puzzle video game Candy Crush on her iPhone.
While the president was saying that America’s trade relationships needed to be fair and reciprocal, Lawrence was on a sugar high matching and dispatching three-of-a-kind candies.
Lawrence bills herself as “the only Member of Congress with the experience of a full career in the Postal Service.” Guess she’ll now also be known as the Congressional Black Caucus “sweetheart.”
RARE LUNAR EVENT OCCURS MID-WEEK
Midweek all 50 states were treated to a lunar event not seen here since 1866. Literally and figuratively, it was an event that occurs “once in a blue moon.”
That’s right, a super blue blood moon appeared this past week. According to the NPR website, a super blue blood moon is the convergence of three common lunar happenings occurring simultaneously.
First, the moon is full for the second time in the calendar month, and whenever that occurs its called a blue moon. Second, the moon’s ellipse brings it thousands of miles closer to Earth, making it appear 17 percent larger. That’s called a super moon.
Finally, the full moon’s close approach to Earth causes it to pass through Barack Obama’s shadow, causing the moon to appear blood red.
Whoops, Freudian slip. With all of Obama’s former talk about healing the planet and slowing the rise of the oceans, I unconsciously assumed he had something to do with this rare lunar event as well.
All kidding aside, you knew something weird was happening last week when uber-libs like Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff expressed concern that leaks from Republicans about FBI and DOJ abuses could harm our national security and impugn the trust Americans have in those institutions. Which brings us to the biggest news stories of the week…
#ReleasetheMemo – Okay, They Did
The much ballyhooed four-page memo outlining abuse of the FISA process by the FBI and DOJ was released Friday by the House Intelligence Committee, and true to its hype it is B-A-D news. How bad we’ll see in the next few months, but suffice it to say it proves three points without a doubt:
- The FBI used political opposition research paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee to obtain a secret court warrant to illegally spy on a member of the Trump campaign.
- Over eight years the Obama administration politicized everything throughout the federal government: the IRS, the National Security Council, the Department of Justice and even the vaulted FBI.
- Liberals used to be the party of civil liberties and individual rights. Not only is that no longer the case, they have done a 180 degree turn. For liberals civil liberties and individual rights now seem to be totally subservient to the state. Criticism and/or accountability for abuses committed by agencies of the State will not be tolerated by the left.
We’ll be reporting more on the implications of the FISA abuse memo in a few days but until then, remember this: the left is already trying to spin release of the memo as Republicans unjustly criticizing law enforcement and needlessly exposing classified information to America’s enemies.
As the comic strip Pogo famously said, “We have met the enemy, and he is us.”
Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who believe in open borders, safe spaces, and who think free speech is hate speech, move on – there’s nothing here for you to see.
