Hurricane Telethon Gets Political
Right At The Start [Video]

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.

Wall Street might be shocked to learn it is helping bankroll the anti-Trump “resistance” movement that’s aggressively fighting policies it favors — including corporate tax cuts and the repeal of Obama-era banking and health-care regulations. The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis. At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well

North Korean diplomat:

An attack on the United States by North Korea is "inevitable" following President Trump´s insult of dictator Kim Jong Un, according to the regime´s top diplomat. "Our rocket´s visit to the entire US mainland [is] inevitable all the more," North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said in a speech to the United Nations on Saturday. Ri´s speech drew upon Trump´s rhetoric but heightened the war of words even from the president´s own U.N. speech. Trump vowed to "destroy" North Korea if the regime attacked the United States or its allies and warned the pariah state´s dictator to suspend efforts

Prince Harry had his first meeting with US First Lady Melania Trump in Toronto ahead of the Invictus Games´ opening ceremony on Saturday. Mrs Trump and Harry spent less than 30 minutes together before the royal left for another engagement - the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge. Despite its brevity, the meeting appeared cordial with the pair warmly shaking hands before settling down to talk in a room at the Sheraton Hotel. The 33-year-old prince dressed in a dark blue suit while the 47-year-old First Lady wore a tailored black-and-white dog tooth Dior suit and black heels. Harry initially appeared awkward

Not long ago, on a summer afternoon, I found myself in Las Vegas with nothing much to do. My flight back home wasn´t until the next day. The $20 I was willing to throw away on gambling didn´t last as long, so I needed something to do. Luckily, over the last decade or so, Las Vegas has become the machine gun capital of the world. A Mecca of hot lead unloaded at a blistering pace. There´s at least half a dozen places where you can rent some full-auto fun. There´s no other town I´m aware of that has more than

Yesterday, I saw Senator Coons, Democrat from Delaware say he couldn’t vote for the Graham Cassidy healthcare replacement bill because it didn’t have a clear definition of adequate and affordable for those with preexisting conditions. What a joke! The Affordable Care act (ACA) was an over 2,000 page bill (that most hadn’t read when they voted on it) with massive numbers of mandates and twenty new taxes and I don’t recall Democrats asking for definitions let alone on subjective terms like adequate and affordable. President Obama went around repeating that everyone would be able to keep their plan and doctor

Many members of the national media hate President Trump so much that they´ll even defend North Korea if it keeps them consistent in their opposition to everything he does. After Trump said at the United Nations General Assembly this week that the U.S. would crush the little Asian country should Kim Jong Un attack the U.S. or our allies, reporters and commentators reacted as if he had just threatened Switzerland on a whimsy. Trump had simply said that the U.S. "has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no

McCain Pulls Plug On Graham-

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen.

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .
