Musician Pharrell Williams Sends Cease and Desist Letter to President Trump. Here’s What it Says.

Uh oh.

Published

Popular musician Pharrell Williams is jumping on the anti-Trump bandwagon by threatening to take legal action against the president if he continues to use the song “Happy” at rallies.

Threats such as these by musicians are hardly anything new, especially for President Trump, the circumstances for Williams’ cease and desist letter are unique. The song was apparently used to energize a crowd for a rally in Indiana just a few hours after the horrific synagogue shooting in Pennsylvania by a raging anti-Semite.

In the letter, Williams’ attorney Howard King criticized the president for unauthorized use of the performer’s song and stressed the grim context of its use: the murder of 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Saturday morning — the worst massacre of Jews in American history.

“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist,’ you played his song ‘Happy’ to a crowd at a political event in Indiana. There was nothing ‘happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose,” wrote King.

Springsteen Disallows Fans Who’ve Had Certain COVID-19 Vaccines

Soon we’ll be queuing up by batch numbers…

Published

on

As the world races to reopen, there are some longstanding concerns that those who’ve chosen not to be vaccinated could wind end living their lives as second-class citizens. We’re already seeing a number of major industries treat Americans differently based on their choices in regard to bodily sovereignty.  Baseball parks are talking about having unvaccinated “sections”, for instance, and the cruise industry is already looking to break the law in Florida by requiring proof of inoculation to ride. Now things are getting even more segregated and specific, as Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show will not allow guests who’ve had a specific brand of COVID-19 vaccine. Rabid rock fans looking to celebrate a return to normalcy by taking in Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show later this month will be on the outside looking in if they’ve received the AstraZeneca vaccine, which hasn’t yet been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. The show at the St. James Theatre, set to run June 26 through Sept. 4, has a lengthy Q&A page detailing the vaccination protocols in place — including a mandate that all guests must be fully vaccinated with an FDA-approved shot to get in. Guests will meet that criteria if they’ve received a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna vaccine at least 14 days earlier, or that same span with a Johnson & Johnson jab prior to the Boss’s latest Broadway run. “At the direction of New York State, Springsteen on Broadway and the St. James Theatre will only be accepting proof of FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson),” the website reads. There is but one exception: The lone exceptions to the vaccine policy will be for children under the age of 16 who have had a negative antigen COVID-19 screening six hours prior to the show, or…

Chris Cuomo Gets Roasted on Twitter After Asking for Examples of His ‘Bias’

Chris Cuomo’s backside is likely a little tender after that.

With Americans’ faith in the mainstream media continuing to falter in recent years, it appears as though some within that ecosystem are growing desperate. The nation is beginning to learn their tricks.  We know all about their sensationalism’s dopamine-inducing addiction, and how they ride this wave of fear and emotion into ever-larger paychecks. It’s not so much the news as a brain-chemical feeding frenzy interrupted every few minutes by some ad for car insurance.  The funny thing is that the pundits themselves are still attempting to keep up appearances, and pretend as though their programs aren’t the gluttonous chaos-porn that they are. Chris Cuomo, of CNN fame, seemed to challenge Twitter to find instances of bias in his work this week, in the sort of “jump the shark” moment that often predates the imminent end of someone’s career. Twitter did not disappoint. https://twitter.com/ChrisCuomo/status/1405513427192356869?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1405513427192356869%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F https://twitter.com/ArthurSchwartz/status/1405722621669433347?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1405722621669433347%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1405524870864150542?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1405524870864150542%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F https://twitter.com/karol/status/1405532964461547523?s=20 https://twitter.com/NewsPolitics/status/1395427627431866369?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1395427627431866369%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fthe-media%2F2021%2F06%2F18%2Fchris-cuomo-trashed-twitter-asking-evidence-bias%2F There is little deniability of bias when you’re actively working with a Democratic governor and using you media connections in the process.
