on fire as Destiny´s Child

appearance at spectacular
halftime performance

Daily Mail (UK), by Nina Golgowski, Meghan Keneally*

Beyonce channeled her Sasha Fierce alter-ego on stage at the half-time Super Bowl show this evening as a surprise reunion of Destiny´s Child wowed the crowd in New Orleans. Launching the show with a strong performance of ´Crazy in Love´ complete with a guitar flaming as it played out its solo, Beyonce proved her doubters wrong by singing live one week after the controversy over her lip-synching at the Presidential Inauguration. In a massive surprise for the tens of millions watching at home, Beyonce was joined by Destiny´s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams who sang with the diva

Doesn´t get any better than a flaming guitar, does it?

Just a calisthenic exercise performed by some pretty girls. I didn´t notice much musical talent. Wonder if they were responsible for knocking out the power?

Ummmm....so that was spectacular? Guess it doesn´t take much anymore. I´ve seen Beyonce a couple of times and it´s always the same thing. Good grief. I guess that´s what passes for talent today. Low info indeed.

Take that, Mitches!
Apparently, CBS is perfectly fine with alienating an (admittedly slim) majority of this country for their own minority views.
Next thing you know, they´ll set up a series of softball interviews with Obama to further his agenda! Just like the state-run media used to do with Stalin and Hitler!
But, naw...that´s hyperbole, isn´t it? Couldn´t happen here.

Ours is probably the only house in the US not tuned in to the overhyped Super Bowl and the triply overhyped, worst kept secret ever of the Most Saintly Beyonce (sarcasm) and her half-time worship service. I think Beyonce has a good voice, but does not use it in any way that impresses me. She is an excellent caterwauler. The fact that she´s BFFs with the Poseurs in Chief makes me want to see her even less.

Skimpy black leather and lace outfits on talent-less ´´entertainers´´. Fortunately my granddaughters were not watching as my daughter and son-in-law don´t have tv. They could be watching from the internet, and I KNOW the half-time would be blocked. Are the organizers unaware of the age groups that watch? The only half-time show that was memorable for me was when my parents visited from England, and it was a Disney half-time. We all enjoyed it.

It was the worst form of exploitation to put those Sandy Hook kids out there. One of the real problems with survivors of violence is a sense of guilt that they lived, and someone else died.
It must be even more difficult for little kids than for adults. Shame on the NFL.
And I was pretty sure that Alicia Keys would never end with her over the top melisma attached to the star spangled banner. The whole pre-game and half time show, with that screeching dancer, who appeared ready to take it all off, made me a grouchy old man.

Actually, Beyonce did not appear to sing "absolutely live" as promised. I´ve spoken to people in the know who say she sang live in parts but sang along to a pre-recorded track in other parts. Therefore, it was not "absolutely live".

The comments about her performance on the social media have been largely negative.

I´m with #11. They could save a bundle on this overhyped halftime show by awarding it to a really good high school marching band (Macy´s Parade, anyone?) and instead of paying them, they make a large donation to the school which could be applied toward funding their arts program.

I saw about 10 seconds of this "show" - - and remarked to my wife - "they look like prostitutes".

It was better than the "wardrobe malfunction" and better than Madonna, but it did look like a bunch of prostitutes and wasn´t appropriate for kids to view. I know they can see way worse, but this is supposed to be family entertainment.

I thought it was pretty lame. Beyonce is a big girl, isn´t she (at least by Hollywood standards). I switched to Downton Abbey shortly afterwards and came back for the end of the game. Pretty exciting, but sorry SF couldn´t convert (not a fan, just would have found it more exciting).

Since when is an in-your-face screaming calisthenics show half-time entertainment?
And what is there about our National Anthem that causes popular artists to make singing it a stylistic romp and all about them? Ridiculous, Alicia Keyes. In contrast, I had the good fortune to attend a huge new citizen swearing in ceremony at the L.A. Convention Center a few months ago. One of the highlights of the ceremony was an amateur young lady who sang our anthem with feeling BUT sang it straight, a cappella and in-tune. It was so moving bringing thousands to tears and then cheers. That young singer got it that it was not about her.

More Sleazy Harry Reid Payments

Breitbart Big Government, by Jonathan Strong    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/27/2014 5:29:40 AM     Post Reply
Tuesday, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reimbursed his campaign for nearly $17,000 in payments made in late 2013 to his granddaughter for “holiday gifts.” But new payments are surfacing bringing the total to $31,000. One $9,064 payment in December 2012, on page 51 of in Reid´s Jan. 31, 2013 Federal Election Commission filing, was made to “Ryan Elisabeth,” a jewelry brand his granddaughter, Ryan Elisabeth Reid, uses. Reid´s campaign described this payment as being for “gifts for supporters.” Reid told the Las Vegas Sun the 2013 payments went towards “thank-you gifts” for “supporters and staff.”

DARRINGTON, Wash.- As firefighter Jeff McClelland uncovered a body on the moon-like surface that blankets what used to be the community of Oso, he soon realized that the search party had a close connection to the victim: The dead man´s son and brother were among the volunteers scouring the debris field. The relatives sat beside the body as it was zipped into a bag. McClelland found himself overcome with tears. The discovery served as a touching reminder of the deeply emotional work that is playing out in this tight-knit town as rescuers like McClelland search for bodies in the muck

A core competency of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is issuing false assurances that all is well with Obamacare. An administration about-face has left the Cabinet official looking like the Baghdad Bob of American health insurance. When Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) asked her at a hearing two weeks ago whether the administration would extend the Obamacare enrollment period beyond March 31, she responded with a crisp and direct: “No, sir.” To the uninitiated, that sounded like an unmistakable denial of any intention to delay the enrollment period. The uninitiated were sadly misled. The secretary subsequently referred in her

WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to President Obama’s trip to Europe, the director of the Secret Service, Julia A. Pierson, sat down with the agency’s senior officials to reiterate a message she had focused on during her first year in the job. Although it had been nearly two years since several agents were caught soliciting prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, shortly before Mr. Obama arrived there for a summit meeting, Ms. Pierson said the agency remained under scrutiny. Agents should be reminded, she said, to be on their best behavior during the coming trip to Europe, where Mr. Obama

Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about Wednesday’s hearing, where a slew of GOP congressmen tore into Koskinen’s claim that responding to the Oversight committee’s subpoena for Lerner’s emails could take years. “All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner — I’m not talking about private taxpayer information.

Even with more than two years left in his term, President Obama’s ability to fill many of his administration’s most important jobs is rapidly diminishing. White House officials are scrambling to reassess their confirmation strategy in the wake of two major setbacks this month: the Senate’s rejection of lawyer Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division and signs that surgeon general nominee Vivek H. Murthy could go down in defeat as well. On Tuesday, the administration appointed Karl Remón Thompson as acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — bypassing the Senate confirmation process

A California state senator once lauded for efforts to make government more transparent was arrested by the FBI in San Francisco Wednesday along with a onetime gang leader known as ‘Shrimp Boy.’ State Sen. Leland Yee and Raymond Chow, were taken into custody after a series of raids by federal and gang task force officials, but the charges against them remained undisclosed. Yee is the third Democratic senator to face charges this year. He was scheduled to be arraigned in federal court in San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon.

For the second week in a row, the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula kept cable news’ coverage Hillary Clinton — who currently holds no office and has not announced a candidacy for one — relatively low. Once again, MSNBC was maintained more of an interest in Clinton in the face of more pressing stories, accounting for considerably more segments and time spent on Clinton — though their numbers last week were still low compared to peak Clinton coverage of last month. Hardball host Chris Matthews alone logged more time on the hypothetical candidate

(Video) Four-year-old Jacob Spillers was trapped in mud so thick it was like freshly poured concrete. But the little trouper didn´t panic as rescuers worked to free him from the mudslide that had swallowed most of his house and trapped his father and some other family members Saturday. "He didn´t cry. He didn´t move. He just stood there and was a very composed little man," Ed Hrivnak, a volunteer pilot for the Snohomish County Helicopter Rescue Team, told CNN on Tuesday. Jacob was upstairs when the mudslide swept through the house. His father and three half-siblings have yet to be

WASHINGTON —Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to reimburse his campaign more than $16,000 for purchasing holiday gifts from his granddaughter´s jewelry business. The Federal Election Commission sent Reid’s campaign a letter last week asking it to provide more information about payments listed as “holiday gifts” on its 2013 year-end campaign finance report. The filing lists two payments in October 2013 to “Ryan Elisabeth” totaling $16,786.93. A Reid aide confirmed that "Ryan Elisabeth" is the name of a company owned by his granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid. The aide described the gifts as trinkets — coasters, picture frames, jewelry —

U.S. Border Patrol agents, in conjunction with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently disclosed the increasing practice of releasing “low threat” illegal immigrant detainees to address the over-crowding of immigration detention centers in south Texas, according to official confirmation of local reports. One south Texas television station, KRGV, recently reported instances of women and minors claiming to have been recently released from immigration officials with “documents that allow [them] to travel anywhere in the United States.” Released individuals claimed their federal instructions stated they were not legally allowed to work and could be subject to further immigration hearings.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard.

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied. On the same day, Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, host Andrea Mitchell interrogated attorney Mark Rienzi for representing Hobby Lobby in the Supreme Court case against the ObamaCare contraception mandate: "What right do they have, again, to interfere with medical decisions by women?...I mean, this gets to the whole issue of women´s health and why should women be discriminated against in ways that other medical beneficiaries are not?" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Rienzi pushed back: "No one´s discriminating against women, Andrea, all they´re saying is that, you´re right, these are personal decisions,

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

During oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday which focused on whether the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates the free exercise of religion, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested employers who have moral objections to birth control should not provide health care coverage for their employees. “But isn´t there another choice nobody talks about, which is paying the tax, which is a lot less than a penalty and a lot less than -- than the cost of health insurance at all?” Sotomayor said during the presentation by attorney Paul Clement, who represents Hobby Lobby Stores

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
