To feel despair in America today is not unheard of.  The very fabric of our nation is being torn apart.

It’s not easy to corner a culprit, however.  The large scale issue is likely the greed of the corporate media, whose enticement routine is getting people hurt…and worse.  Then we can extrapolate this all the way back to advertisers, special interest groups, and simply money itself.  But that may be too wide a berth, and too vague a scope for Americans.

After all, we’re the nation of unapologetic freedom and patriotism.  Those who hold disdain for our country are easily discovered simply by taking a look at their voter registration.

So, as we approach another flash point in the form of the 2018 midterm elections, the crescendo of liberal lunacy has been dialed up to eleven.

Don’t believe me?  Just take a look at what came out of Hollywood this week.

From the red carpet of an awards show in Santa Monica, California on Sunday night, character actor James Cromwell said there will be “blood in the streets” if Democrats don’t stop President Trump by taking back the majority in the House and Senate.

Cromwell, who played Farmer Hoggett in “Babe,” told Variety the United States’s institutions are on the verge of becoming “pure fascism.”

“This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,” he said. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”

The visceral vitriol being vocalized by Cromwell may sounds familiar to you, as it echoes the sentiments of long time democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who earlier this year called for her constituents to confront conservatives by “forming crowds” and making them “not welcome” whenever they are in public.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
