Singer Stevie Wonder kicked off Tuesday’s star studded Hand In Hand telethon to raise money for hurricane recovery by getting political. Wonder started the show by saying, “Anyone who believes that there’s no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.” Watch: (Video) The Hand In Hand telethon was run on every broadcast network to benefit victims of hurricanes Harvey, which devastated the Houston area, and Irma, which slammed Florida over the weekend. The event mirrors past telethons for natural disasters. The 2005 telethon to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina became known for Kanye West’s infamous

Anyone who pays any attention to Hollywood must be "either blind or unintelligent".

FTA: “Anyone who believes that there’s no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.”

Seems to me that Stevie is both.

I wonder how much it cost the telethon to have these people perform? Did they pay their travel expenses? Did they meet the performers´ demands for their dressing rooms and how they must be stocked? Performers don´t do charities for nuthin´.

Doubt the Climate Change crowd is doing much of anything regarding control of the weather. Doubt weather can be controlled at all. Re-allocate much of that money into flood control.

It was a good cause, with all the wrong people promoting it. As soon as I saw who the so-called "celebrities" were, I changed the channel. They can go Virtue Signal to someone else. I´m sick of them.

They could have just quietly donated from their own riches, and left us alone.

The belated attempt by the left to cover their hypocrisy on sexual predators by throwing Bill and Hillary Clinton under the bus now that they have no further political use for them is staggering. They forget their mantra that his being serviced by Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office was personal and didn’t matter as long as he was doing a good job as President. It was the GOP, you know, that was waging a war on women.Republicans were the predators, as serial accuser and so-called feminist lawyer Gloria Allred reminded us when she appeared with a box of tissue

Finally, after four and a half years, harassment of conservative groups by the Obama IRS is put to rest, with the media downplaying the story.A William McGurn column in the Wall Street Journal, November 21, stated that IRS-Tea Party litigation had been settled. A New York Times story on October 27, 2017 reported that the government, in one lawsuit involving 428 groups, "agreed to a multimillion-dollar settlement," and that, in a second lawsuit comprising 41 groups, damages will not be paid, "but the I.R.S. acknowledged its conduct was wrong."

Realistic political analysts have always believed that their dominance of mainstream media has always added to the vote totals of Democrats and progressives. President Trump´s excoriation of fake news is an attempt to lessen that advantage by helping credibility erode faster than ever from the major media outlets. But now a different kind of threat is emerging, and we can expect screams of outrage if a couple of billionaires follow through on moves being hinted at. Following the example of Jeff Bezos´s bargain-basement purchase of the Washington Post, a couple of major media properties may fall into conservative hands and

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday clarified that his walking boot is on his right foot, adding that he switched it to his left to "give it a break." McCain caused confusion when he posted a photo from his daughter Meghan´s wedding in which his walking boot was on his left foot. He had previously been seen wearing it on his right foot after he suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon. McCain took notice of the fallout, and on Thursday took to Twitter to clarify.

He wrote that he “feels terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly.” He called himself “a warm person” who likes to hug people when they’re being photographed with him, but clearly, his embrace “crossed a line for some women.” Although his statement did not directly address the question of whether he might resign, he vowed

Time magazine is already celebrating their Best of 2017, and their favorite "Non-Fiction" book of the year is....Hillary Clinton´s campaign memoir What Happened. Time assistant managing editor Claire Howorth gushed, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history." It came complete with buying instructions from Amazon, and Hillary Clinton quickly tweeted out how "honored" she was: "I loved writing this book, & I’m honored to be in such great company on this list!"

We have already reached the cornered animal stage of Democrats caught up in the sexual harassment hysteria. Is there anything more amusing than watching your enemies play a game of chicken with each other, threatening mutual assured destruction? Even better: a threat that comes written in all-caps, the cyber equivalent of shouting, hinting that “many members” could find themselves in a similarly difficult situation.

Recent pics of Malia Obama showed her kissing a tall, athletically-built white male who was most likely a fellow university student. It seems normal enough, right? She’s a young woman, he’s a young man – so what’s the problem? Well, apparently many in the Black community find what she did to be an appalling act of…racism. The onslaught of negativity directed at the daughter of the former President is both shocking and troubling. Why do so many choose to see the world through the narrow prism of color and then demand that color requires one to never deviate from their “rules”

A retired lieutenant general said Thursday that President Trump’s comments to troops deployed overseas, which included remarks about the economy and military’s recent success, were “somewhat insulting.” “First of all, I’m thankful for the fact that he did address the soldiers. But the message I heard and some of the things he said would not have rung very well with me had I been a deployed soldier,” CNN military analyst and retired Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling said. Trump spoke from his Mar-a-Lago estate to troops deployed overseas via video teleconference. During the call, the president praised the military’s recent performance,

True to the theme that he’s been nationally talking about – or rather, taking a knee for – since last summer, former 49er Colin Kaepernick attended an “Unthanksgiving Day” celebration on Alcatraz Island. The Indigenous Peoples Sunrise Ceremony, held annually on Thanksgiving since 1975, commemorates the survival of Native American peoples following the settlement of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. Kaepernick began making headlines in August when a photographer spotting him sitting during the national anthem. He told reporters that he sat, or took a knee, because he was fighting to combat the oppression of people of color and ongoing issues
