    US President Donald Trump unveiled a controversial 1.5-trillion-US-dollar infrastructure plan on Monday, as question marks linger over how authorities will fund the ambitious proposal, and whether it goes anywhere near far enough. Trump promised to give “Americans the working, modern infrastructure they deserve,” after criticizing what he called inefficient investment under previous administrations that had led to the US falling behind other countries.

    Give us today our daily outrage: the pop star Lorde has decided – after much consideration – to cancel her concert in Israel after a letter from BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) supporters. Cut to a rightwing American rabbi taking out a full-page advert in the Washington Post to denounce her as antisemitic, and also hold her responsible for New Zealand’s entire foreign policy. All of this seems a bit harsh – expecting a 21-year-old to have a fully formed opinion on something she readily admitted to not knowing much about. This is a woman who sang on her first album...

    Ringo Starr will perform two shows in Israel later this year in defiance of the anti-Israel BDS movement that calls for the complete isolation of the Jewish State. The former Beatle made the announcement on his personal website. It comes just a week after New Zealand singer Lorde cancelled her planned Tel Aviv concert after a vocal campaign by BDS activists. Ringo has chosen a band that includes fellow rock legends Steve Lukather of Toto, Greg Rollie of Journey and Graham Gouldman of 10cc as the All-Starrs. The two shows are booked for Tel Aviv’s Menorah Mivtahim Arena on June...

    Grammy-award winning artist Lorde has canceled a scheduled concert in Tel Aviv following activists' calls for her to join the growing boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel. Eran Arielli, owner and founder of concert organizer Naranjah, which promoted the June show, confirmed the cancellation on Sunday. "The truth is that I was naive to think that an artist of her age can withstand the pressure involved in coming to Israel, and I take full responsibility and ask the forgiveness of fans, admirers, and other dreamers," Arielli wrote on Facebook. "I have no complains about her, and beyond that,...
  • Lorde Cancels Israel Concert After Pressure from BDS Movement

    Grammy-winning singer Lorde has succumbed to peer pressure and canceled a concert in Israel as a way to cater to the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, a campaign created as a way to punish Israel for its "oppression" of Palestinians, according to its founders. The movement is so extreme that even liberal governors have condemned it. In June 2016, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order deeming that state agencies can strip funding from any company that is privy to the BDS movement.Still, Jewish activist Justine Sachs and Palestinian activist Nadia Abu-Shanab wanted to get Lorde's attention...

    The popular song “Royals” by New Zealand artist Lorde is getting caught up in the fervor over the upcoming World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals. Two San Francisco radio stations say they won’t play the song during the duration of the World Series. KFOG and KOIT announced the bans last week as the Giants clinched the pennant and headed to the series. …

    Don’t ever say that the Obamas don’t make good on their promises. At least with respect to fundraisers.After stiffing Hollywood friends twice last year due, first, to a threatened KMA (kinetic military action) in Syria and later the equally threatening Federal Government Shutdown (thanks to Ted Cruz) Lady M finally showed up last week to grab the bag of cash (reportedly $650,000 – not bad for a pizza party in your back yard).That was following an appearance on Ryan Seacrest’s show Thursday morning to promote her very successful “No Child’s Fat Behind” program, push young people to sign up for...
