  • John Mellencamp Condemns Gun Violence in New Single ‘Hey God’

    John Mellencamp will release his 25th album, Orpheus Descending, on June 25. The singer and songwriter is previewing the 11-song set with album opener "Hey God." The nervy, slide guitar-driven song finds Mellencamp asking for deliverance from rampant gun violence. "Weapons and guns, are they really my rights? / Laws written a long time ago / No one could imagine the sight of so many dead on the floor," he laments, before beseeching: "Hey, God, if you're still there, would you please come down? We can't take it anymore." You can watch the lyric video for "Hey God" and see...

    Liz Cheney is no longer a member of Congress, but that didn’t stop her from trying to pick a fight with Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA. Cheney tweeted from the unemployment line on Monday, lecturing Greene on the “governing principles of America” after the Georgia congresswoman proposed a national divorce. Greene had tweeted earlier, “We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are...

    Former “Today” star Katie Couric said that many people “turned a blind eye to inappropriate behavior” by CNN chief Jeff Zucker and network bigwig Allison Gollust, whose romantic relationship led to his resignation. “I worked with Jeff Zucker for many years at NBC and later on my talk show. He was a talented and energetic producer. His resignation took me by surprise,” Couric said in statement through Katie Couric Media. “(Gollust) and her husband and kids had moved into the apartment right above Jeff and Caryn’s — everyone who heard about their cozy arrangement thought it was super strange,” Couric...

    Hillary Clinton predicted Trump would run again in 2024 and warned of dire consequences for the country if he were to retake the White House. “If I were a betting person right now, I’d say Trump is going to run again,” Hillary said in an excerpt of her interview with TODAY host Willie Geist. “But I want people to understand that this is a make-or-break point.” Hillary Clinton is still bitter she lost to Trump after calling more than half of Americans “deplorables.” “Are we going to give in to all these lies and this disinformation and this organized effort...

    n her piece, the 'I Try' singer said the flag needs to be redesigned to represent all Americans, arguing the symbolism of Old Glory was harmed during the Capitol riot. 'Like the Confederate, it is tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect,' Gray wrote of the flag. 'It no longer represents democracy and freedom. It no longer represents ALL of us. It’s not fair to be forced to honor it. It’s time for a new flag.' Gray put together a proposal for that new flag, with off-white stripes, '52 stars to include D.C. and Puerto Rico,' and stars 'the colors of ALL...

  • GA Poll Worker Confesses UNDER OATH That 10 to 20 THOUSAND Biden Absentee Ballots They Counted Were FAKE

    Suzi Voyles, the poll manager for Fulton County, Georgia, discovered a disturbingly peculiar pattern of regularity in the markings for Joseph R. Biden when she looked through a big stack of mail-in ballots in November. The absentee ballots all had flawlessly filled-in ovals for Biden, with the exception that each of the darkening bubbles had an identical white space inside it in the shape of a tiny crescent, indicating they’d been inscribed with toner ink rather than a pen or pencil. She also noticed that all of the ballots were printed on different stock paper than the others she handled...

    Why? Or, better yet, why now? The sequel never answers either question, nor does it deliver anything like the laughs generated by the 1988 original. It’s powered by some charming players and fits of inspiration which never coalesce into anything real. At its worst, it piles on the woke platitudes and reheats the better gags from the original film. Why bother?
  • How Alan Parsons Project Became the Soundtrack to Jordan’s Bulls

    For every Chicago Bulls home game during Michael Jordan's career, first at Chicago Stadium and then at the United Center, he was welcomed onto the court with the same introduction song: “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project. Parsons had released the instrumental track in 1982, using it as the opening song for his Eye in the Sky album. Two years later, a Chicago disc jockey named Tommy Edwards was settling in at a local movie theater when “Sirius” began playing over the cinema’s speaker system. “I know this song,” the longtime radio personality recalled to NBC Sports. “It’s ‘Sirius’ by...

    Howard Stern announced Monday he's "all in on Joe Biden," saying President Trump "could have been ahead of this curve" on the coronavirus pandemic. Stern made his endorsement on his SiriusXM radio show after a Trump supporter defended the president's Thursday remarks regarding using disinfectant or ultraviolet light to combat the coronavirus, which Trump tried to walk back on Friday as being "sarcastic." "What's it going to take? I don't get it," Stern said of the president's comments. "I don't think there is anyone left who will vote for him." "I am all in on Joe Biden," he later added....

    Washington (CNN)The White House has issued a formal threat to former national security adviser John Bolton to keep him from publishing his book, "The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir," sources familiar with the matter tell CNN. In a letter to Bolton's lawyer, a top official at the National Security Council wrote the unpublished manuscript of Bolton's book "appears to contain significant amounts of classified information" and couldn't be published as written. The letter, which is dated January 23, said some of the information was classified at the "top secret" level, meaning it "reasonably could be expected to...

    This is the extraordinary moment an ashen-faced Hugh Grant learned that the Tories were on course for a landslide general election win despite his personal campaign to stop Boris Johnson and scupper Brexit. The outspoken actor, 59, looked crestfallen when the exit poll landed at 10pm last night as he enjoyed wine and food at the Tendido Cero tapas restaurant in Kensington last night. As he saw the woeful performance by Labour and the Lib Dems on polling day, the Love Actually star looked down-trodden with his wife Anna Eberstein. A witness told MailOnline: 'He was constantly staring at his...

    NBC’s website declares its high opinion of itself in a section called “THINK Opinion, Analysis, Essays” and Nov. 26 saw Robert Redford write what I suppose is an essay, or a primal scream, called “President Trump's dictator-like administration is attacking the values America holds dear.” I went to the article knowing it would be a tortuous liberal screed but hoping to finally answer a single question that has been bothering me for a long time; what specific things has Trump done to warrant such wailing and gnashing of teeth among our political and entertainment class of prom kings and queens?...
