Maroon 5 Barely Leaves a
Mark at Super Bowl Halftime Show

New York Times, by Jon Caramanica

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/4/2019 2:03:20 AM

Maroon 5 — a quasi-soul, quasi-rock, utterly funkless band — was the main attraction at the Super Bowl halftime show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, likely the third or eighth or maybe 14th choice for a headliner. In a year in which the Super Bowl halftime show has become a referendum on political mindfulness, in which the N.F.L. has become a staging ground for conversations about racial justice in America, Maroon 5 was a cynically apt choice. (Snip) And in a year in which the political valence of the halftime show mattered more than ever, the band’s stubborn resistance was glaring.

Comments:
Maroon 5 got beached by social media for just playing their music. Then, "fake news" fake news used this as the basis for this article. Next, the Oscars?

My 85 year old Dad saw Adam Levine (I muted the entire halftime show) and started laughing at his tattoos. He said he wondered if he has any idea what those tattoos will look like when he is in his 70´s and 80´s, once the ravages of time and gravity take over!! It´ll probably look like one of those melted Crayola "candles" we made as kids!!

Although it was on all the TVs at the party we attended, everyone traditionally pays no attention to the halftime show and blather and heads for the excellent buffet. Too much fun socializing to be interested in yet another nonmusical performance where the only sparkle is the same old pyrotechnics ...

Washington Examiner [DC], by Susan Ferrechio    Original Article

House Democrats aren’t giving up on attempting to impeach President Trump, even though Speaker Nancy Pelosi all but dismissed it in an interview published Monday. “I happen to disagree with that take,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., told the Washington Examiner Monday night, responding to the Pelosi interview. “But you know, she’s the speaker. … I think we’ll see.” Pelosi told the Washington Post she doesn’t support the House trying to impeach Trump. “He’s just not worth it,” the California Democrat said in the interview. Pelosi’s comments contradict the views of many House Democrats who are eager

Unearthed radio clips have revealed a number of sexist, misogynistic and perverted remarks by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson. The clips compiled and published Sunday by Media Matters For America were recorded back when Carlson was a regular commentator on the shock jock radio program ´Bubba the Love Sponge´ between 2006 and 2011. For about an hour each week, Carlson would call into the show and weigh in on current events, often sharing controversial opinions in vulgar terms. On several occasions the conservative commentator defended underage marriage and statutory rape while making crude comments about minors exploring their sexuality. He also frequently employed misogynistic

Bolton brushes aside North Korean activity,

President Trump and his top advisers expressed optimism through the weekend that diplomatic efforts on denuclearization talks with Pyongyang can be revived, despite reports of North Korean ballistic missile and nuclear activity. National Security Adviser John R. Bolton sought to dampen the hype around the prospect that a North Korean missile launch could be imminent after the emergence in recent days of commercial satellite imagery appearing to show cranes at work rebuilding a key test site that Pyongyang previously vowed to destroy. “There’s a lot of activity all the time in North Korea, but I’m not going to

Bolton said in an interview with ABC that he will be speaking with his South Korean counterpart Monday morning and he may discuss satellite images that show rebuilding activity at the North´s missile launch site.

In the digital world, you are what you like. So why was Rashida Tlaib’s official Instagram page following an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist with links to a mosque notorious for its terrorist connections? The account, ‘Free.Palestine.1948’, belongs to a British Muslim who is an accomplished promoter of extremism. Photos of Benjamin Netanyahu with Adolf Hitler are juxtaposed, and a rat superimposed on the Israeli flag. There are repeated claims that the 9/11 attacks were a false-flag operation by ‘the Jews’ or Mossad, that Israel created ISIS and is an ‘apartheid state’, that Tom Watson, deputy leader of the UK’s Labour party,

A new Des Moines Register poll shows Bill de Blasio getting zero interest from likely Democratic caucus-goers as either a first or second presidential choice. Former Vice President Joe Biden — who has yet to announce his candidacy — led the 20-candidate pack as the first choice of 27 percent of likely Democratic caucus-goers, and the second choice of 19 percent. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Cory Booker were the next most popular, in that order. The poll showed de Blasio tied for last place in popularity with Eric Swalwell, Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang.

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro questioned Rep. Ilhan Omar´s loyalty to the U.S. on Saturday. During he opening monologue, Pirro asked her viewers to think about the fact that Omar wears a hijab while speculating whether the freshman Democrat opposes the U.S. Constitution. Pirro focused on Omar, who recently came under fire for what were seen as anti-Semitic and anti-Israel comments, during her opening monologue. "This is not who your party is," Pirro said of the Democratic Party. "Your party is not anti-Israel, she is. Think about this. She is not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party."

Nicolas Maduro’s staunchest international ally—Russia—reaffirmed last week its full support to the Socialist leader’s regime and his efforts to prevent what Moscow sees as interference in Venezuela’s domestic affairs. At the same time, Russia, which vowed to defend its oil assets in Venezuela as early as the political crisis began in January, sees risks to its investments in the Latin American country and pledges to react “in the toughest way” possible within international law if those investments are threatened, Russia’s Ambassador to Venezuela, Vladimir Zaemsky, told Russian government-run newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta

British spies block suspected Russian assassin

A suspected Russian assassin who MI5 believe was planning to murder an ex-prime minister was barred from entering the UK. Umar Sugaipov was prevented from coming into the country last summer because intelligence suggested he was preparing to kill Akhmed Zakayev, the former Chechen leader and enemy of Vladimir Putin. The decision to block the suspected hitman came five months after Sergei Skripal was the target of a novichok poisoning attack. Sugaipov was judged by British security officials as a ´threat to national security´ and, more specifically, the life of Mr Zakayev who was granted asylum in 2004,

The winds of change are blowing
Iran further toward the hardliners

There is a lot happening in Iran as the Supreme Leader shakes things up politically. While Iranians continue to protest about unpaid salaries and long queues for food, Ayatollah Khamenei is busy making preparations. The changes he is making relate to the future of the Islamic Republic and aim to guarantee that when he is gone, his loyal supporters will remain in control. One of his first moves has been to raise the political profile of Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force. He was seen sitting beside the supreme leader when Syrian President Bashar Assad paid an unexpected visit to Tehran two weeks ago.

Kim Jong Un casts his vote as millions

Millions of North Korean voters, including leader Kim Jong Un, went to the polls today to elect a new lineup of roughly 700 members for the next session of the national legislature . But voters were presented with just one state-sanctioned candidate per seat and cast their ballots not to select but rather to show their approval or, at least theoretically, disapproval of that candidate. The elections, last held in 2014, are for the entire Supreme People´s Assembly, which on paper is the highest organ of power in North Korea. Its delegates come from all over the country and all walks of life. The candidates are selected by the ruling

Two more jihadi brides being held with their children in Syrian refugee camps have been stripped of their British citizenship, it has been reported. It comes as the row over Islamic State runaway Shamima Begum continued following the death of her three-week-old son. According to The Sunday Times, two women, who between them have five boys under the age of eight, had their UK nationality removed after marrying into a terror cell linked to the murder of western hostages. The Home Office said it did not comment on individual cases. A spokesman added: "Any decisions to deprive individuals of their citizenship are based on

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy. He leaves a legacy of

The battle over the admissions standards at New York City’s elite public high schools has heated up again. After having failed to change the standards last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is back at it, this time with some backup from celebrity freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As usual, their impassioned pleas about the lack of black and Hispanic students completely ignores that it is Asian, not white, students who would bear the brunt of the proposed changes. At issue is the fact that these hyper-competitive high schools consider only a test score in deciding admissions

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said the “unplanned/unbudgeted” deployment along the border that President Trump ordered last fall, and shifts of other funds to support border security, had forced him to cancel or reduce planned military training in at least five countries, and delay urgent repairs at bases.(Snip) Neller, a four-star general, said because of the

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

"Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

A federal judge ruled that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West. The decision late Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in the District of Columbia marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president’s plan to boost fossil fuel production across the country. Contreras concluded that Interior’s Bureau of Land Management “did not sufficiently consider climate change” when making decisions to auction
