They say the music is the message, and it probably doesn’t take much reading between the lines to get the meaning behind the music Donald Trump walked on stage to at his Colorado Springs rally on Thursday night. As the president stepped out in front of the crowd, The Rolling Stones’ 1965 song Play With Fire blasted out across the venue. The lyric: “But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire,” might indicate a new, ominous, post-impeachment cockiness.(Snip) He has already removed Alexander Vindman from his position as an expert with the National Security Council following his testimony during the

The Donald usually features an excellent slate of music at his rallies, which is part of his showmanship. Dare we imagine the Deep State finally being brought to account?

The Stone's Play With Fire has been one of the President's playlist songs since he was candidate Trump! He almost always walks on while Al Greenwood's I Love the USA. That's what has happened recently, too. The reporters at the Independent are sloppy.

It's "The Independent", not a reliable source of facts, definitely anti-Trump and even trashier than the DM.

Since this comes from a leftist British rag, I will be giving it all the respect it deserves. Which is basically none. Between this, and the shock from Clint Eastwood suddenly appearing to support Bloombutt, I am not sure what to think today. So I will wait for the Sunday/Monday walk backs that are sure to come. #1, that would be LEE Greenwood, not Al.

New Jersey officials have raised the threat level from white supremacists to the highest possible level—while deeming Islamic terror groups like ISIS a low threat to the Garden State. The annual threat assessment report released Friday shows that white supremacists are now labeled a “high” threat for attacks, joining other so-called homegrown violent extremists as the biggest menace. “The threat from white supremacist extremists increased from moderate to high in 2020 due to the number of threats, plots, and attacks conducted in 2019,” the report said. ISIS, however, was dropped from a moderate threat level to low, joining other fundamentalist

But a rep for the “Ocean’s Eleven” star exclusively tells Page Six that “all is fine” after the flooding. According to Architectural Digest, the Clooneys purchased the 17th-century mansion shortly after their Venetian wedding in 2014. The home sits on a four-acre island in the middle of the River Thames.

Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it.
