    [Snip] Yes, we've lost some already. On top of the icons who died horribly young decades ago — Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, John Lennon — there's the litany of legends felled by illness, drugs, and just plain old age in more recent years: George Harrison, Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Tom Petty. Those losses have been painful. But it's nothing compared with the tidal wave of obituaries to come. The grief and nostalgia will wash over us all. Yes, the Boomers left alive will take it...

    The Democratic Party that my grandfather belonged to no longer exists in any meaningful sense. Today, the Democratic Party is run, financed and driven by radical, hate-filled people who love socialism and hate conservatives, Christians, men, white people and America itself. Those are mainstream beliefs among the Party elite. Yes, there are plenty of Democrats who don’t believe in these things, but they still support and vote for the hate-filled radicals who want to destroy everything good about this country so they can build some never-before-seen Utopia that will never exist anywhere except in their own minds. Read these quotes...
  • Streisand's Bizarre Michael Jackson Defense

    The Times of London published a sugary celebrity interview on March 21 titled "Barbra Streisand at 76: dog cloning, art collecting and being a grandma." Talk about burying the lede. Social-media accounts have been whirring in outrage since it was discovered that Streisand had demonstrated such extreme sympathy for the late Michael Jackson that she ran down the men accusing him of sexually abusing them as young children in the new documentary "Leaving Neverland." Streisand dismisses Jackson's pedophilia thusly: "His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has.'' She even put...

    When I saw Barbra Streisand trending on Twitter, I assumed that she had died. Babs, of course, is still alive. It's her career that is dead. The once-revered-but-now-hated pop culture icon made the mistake of expressing culturally unacceptable beliefs about Michael Jackson and his alleged sexual fondness for children. As I read tweet after tweet condemning Streisand, I couldn't help but wonder how the tweets will age. Watching our society slide into moral degradation, few conservative Christians doubt that the day is coming when pedophilia will be a culturally acceptable practice. Because of that, the left may want to hold...

    After facing an onslaught of intense backlash and severe scrutiny, singer Barbra Streisand is "profoundly sorry" for saying that pop icon Michael Jackson's alleged serial molestation of children was simply the satisfaction of "sexual needs" that ultimately brought little to no harm to his victims.

    Barbra Streisand only met Michael Jackson a few times, but she definitely has some opinions about his alleged molestation of several young boys. Streisand shared her thoughts with the Times in the U.K. ahead of her July concert at London’s Hyde Park. Given that Streisand is one of the few people alive to have experienced a level of stardom similar to Jackson’s, interviewer Ed Potton asked about her thoughts on “Leaving Neverland.” The EGOT-winning singer says that she believes Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege in the documentary that they were abused by Jackson as children. “Oh absolutely,” she...

    The Children's Museum of Indianapolis has removed three Michael Jackson items from exhibits after a new documentary renewed allegations of child sexual abuse against the late singer and Gary native. The Indianapolis Star reports a fedora and glove Jackson wore onstage and a Jackson poster are no longer on display at the museum. Chris Carron, the museum's director of collections, says it wants items on display to tell stories of "people of high character."

    Michael Jackson's music appears to have been dropped from BBC Radio 2's playlists following new child sex abuse claims. The decision is reported to have been made last week ahead of Channel 4 News's documentary about the star's alleged crimes, Leaving Neverland, which will be broadcast this week. In the programme, the Sunday Times reports that James Safechuck, 40, and Wade Robson, 36, claim they were sexually assaulted and raped while children by the pop star after being groomed over a number of years.

    Hours after HBO announced when Leaving Neverland would premiere, the estate of Michael Jackson fired off a 10-page letter to HBO’s CEO slamming the film and HBO’s decision to air it. **SNIP** The letter to HBO continued, “As for Safechuck, by his own admission, he did not ‘realize’ that he had been abused until after he saw Robson on the Today Show in May 2013 being interviewed by Matt Lauer about Robson’s newly-concocted story of abuse. All of a sudden, Safechuck realized that he had been abused. He then contacted Robson’s lawyers and filed copycat lawsuits against the Estate for...

    As a young girl growing up in Virginia, I experienced racism firsthand. I know what it looks like and how it feels. I’ve also spent a good part of my life defending the rights of preborn children to live and love among us. It’s my personal mission to fight for and defend the value and dignity of human life. Most Virginians share these beliefs. They are repelled by racism, repulsed by the thought of infanticide. This is why Gov. Ralph Northam must resign. Any decision on his part to delay appears to be an act of a man weighing what...

    The Boston Herald ^ | 02-03-2019 | Tom Shattuck
    Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is looking at the man in the mirror today, and the disgraced politician is a far cry from the progressive hero he was earlier this week. While the opportunistic politicians scamper like rats from the scene, media activists are taking a stand for their man, deflecting and reshaping the narrative in a desperate attempt to save their hero. The media’s love for Northam was earned. It started on a radio show as he mused about ending the life of unborn children in the third trimester if they were accidentally born alive mid-abortion. He was cool...

    He apologized for the picture appearing on his page, calling the image "offensive" and "racist," but said that he had nothing to do with the preparation of the yearbook, nor did he buy it. He said that while he did not attend that party where the picture was taken, he did attend another party the same year in which he said he "darkened my face as part of a Michael Jackson costume." He also said that he did not expect Virginians to believe him immediately or to forgive his actions right away: "I am just asking for that ability to...

    National Review ^ | 01/28/2019 | Kyle Smith
    It has been apparent since the mid 1990s that Michael Jackson was a child molester. A great entertainer, yes, but almost certainly a serial abuser of little boys. That his attorneys managed to cast doubt on witnesses in a notorious 2005 criminal trial doesn’t inspire much confidence. As was the case with Bill Cosby, the pattern of grotesque allegations has become impossible to ignore. Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, have previously stated under oath that they weren’t victimized by Jackson when they were children. They are now saying their previous testimony was untrue and that it resulted from...

    The Sundance Film Festival kicked off on Thursday, 1-24-19, flooding the streets of Park City, UT with PIBs (People In Black) navigating snow covered Main Street in flip-flops, 9” heels and butt-hugger speedo skirts. Most of them rent cars and try to drive even though they’ve never seen snow anywhere other than the movies. And being Angelinos they are undaunted by the gridlock they create around town trying to maneuver the few roads around town. Locals know to stay home during “the Fest” except when absolutely necessary, like going skiing, and we always pack survival cakes for the trip, just...

    The Eagles have flown past Michael Jackson’s Thriller to take the record for the best-selling album of all time. Recording Industry Association of America confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday that the band’s 1976 compilation album, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975), has been certified 38x platinum, which means sales and streams of the album have reached 38 million copies. That officially puts it ahead of Thriller, which has been certified 33x platinum. That’s not even the limit of the Eagles’ record-selling dominance. In addition to grabbing the No. 1 spot, the band also has the third-best-selling album of all time:...

    Shocking photos show the men, dressed in blue overalls, handcuffed and surrounded by Yemeni soldiers as crowds watched their public execution take place in city's streets. Authorities ordered the rapists to lie down on the floor, pointing a gun to their head, before shooting them five times in the heart. The rapists' dead corpses were propped up by in the air by a crane, in Sana'a, Yemen, publicly displayed in front of crowds, serving as a firm warning to anyone who dared commit such crimes. Capital punishment in Yemen is legal, and the country has one of the highest execution...
