Legendary musician Bruce Springsteen and singer/songwriter Joe Grushecky released a new song, "That´s What Makes Us Great," to protest President Trump. Grushecky wrote the anthem just as Trump was being sworn in as president in January. "I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking," Grushecky told the Pittsburg Post-Gazette in an interview. "I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ´What do you think about singing on it?´ He gave it the Bruce treatment." "Don´t tell me a lie / and sell it as a fact / I´ve been down that road before /

The most overrated rock star ever turns out to be a political imbecile of gargantuan proportions. (The fact that Gov. Christie weeps when listening to Springsteen makes me think that there is something the matter with the governor.) Back in the ´70s I owned several of his records, but because Bruce is so longwindedly leftist, I never bought CDs to replace them. I haven´t missed his music. There´s much better available.

"Legendary"? Only in Brucie Springsteen´s own mind maybe. Look up the word "mediocre" and the word "fatuous" in the dictionary and you will find a picture of this tax dodging Obama butt kissing clown´s picture.

Also see definition of the phrase "massive tool" and once again you will see a picture of this useful idiot.

Bruce back up your LIES by taking Joe the oh so wise songwriter and do a tour of Europe. They need your wisdom about love stopping hate. I DARE you. Or just suggest that the women in the crowd can take off their head scarves at a summer concert in Michigan. Come on TOUGH guy. Sing a song for the culture, even in this country, that mutilates girls because they have a warped view of sex.

Count Bassie

Never a peep about dead American soldiers from Springsteen, John Fogerty or Mellencamp when Clinton or Obama were president. Only when the GOP are in charge. That is why their protest´s are meaningless and devoid of substance.

How stylish of him.

I was a huge fan of Springsteen when I was young, and I still love a lot of his earlier music. At one time, his music was about redemption and uplift. Now he´s just another whining liberal cranking out political screeds in the guise of entertainment.

Sad, really.

Recently ousted White House strategist Steve Bannon said the administration is deeply “divided” but warned that “all be sweetness and light” if Republican lawmakers ally with President Trump and his agenda.“If the Republican Party on Capitol Hill gets behind the president on his plans and not theirs, it will all be sweetness and light, be one big happy family,” Bannon told the Washington Post in an interview published online Saturday. But he cautioned not to expect any “sweetness” anytime soon. “No administration in history has been so divided among itself about the direction about where it should go,” he told

It’s Now Official – No President in US History has Cut More from the US Federal Debt for a Longer Period of Time than President Donald J. Trump. President Trump now can claim the longest and largest decrease of US Federal Debt in US history.

Obviously there’s an awakening happening throughout the U.S. body politic. Proof of that awakening is President Donald Trump.

As the “Russian Collusion” excuse for Hillary’s loss fails for want of evidence (and common sense) as did her “misogyny” claim before it, Hillary’s pal, Governor Terry McAuliffe, obviously thought he had another keen plan to keep his party from utter ruin. Instead, he is more likely to have stirred up a whirlwind, which will sink his party even further in the voters’ eyes. Led by Charlottesville Deputy Mayor Wes Bellamy (a McAuliffe appointee to the local school board now on leave for racist, sexist, homophobic tweets, the city council narrowly approved removing a statue of Robert E.

See below for an important update. Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document "hate crimes and events" in America. They´ve partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy.

Rather than raise money for the sick and needy, a Google employee has launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise $1 million to ship all of the Confederate statues in the nation down to President Trump´s Mar-a-Lago estate. Launched by Brian Farnham of Palm Beach, FL, the statues represent the "worst parts of human nature" and would fit well on Trump´s estate. His full campaign statement: President Moral Black Hole is a big fan of all the "beautiful" statues of Confederate war heroes that were put up by white supremacists in the Twenties.

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

As of Friday morning, the five flags other than the United States flag — representing Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas and the Confederacy — are being left to the history books.The park received criticism following last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Va., from TMZ, Fox News and others for flying the Confederate states flag.

Thousands of anti-fascist protesters are marching through the streets of Boston in protest of right-wing activists hosting a ´free speech´ rally on Saturday. Only a handful of attendees could be spotted against the swarm of the estimated 15,000 counter-protesters who chanted loudly as they made their way towards Boston Common. Organizers of the rally had attempted to distance themselves from the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who fomented violence in Charlottesville last week. The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.
