An NRA-Sponsored Band Played At The Las Vegas Music Festival Right Before The Shooting

 

North Carolina-native Luke Combs was the second to last act at Route 91 Fest, and mass murderer Stephen Paddock began his act of terror from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel only minutes after his set ended. He also happens to be the only NRA-sponsored performer at the event. Vice News reports:

Among the performers at the concert was Luke Combs, a featured artist of “NRA Country,” an arm of the gun rights organization that has partnered with the country music industry for the past several years in effort to reach younger audiences.

NRA Country sponsored Luke Combs as their “Featured Artist” for November, and he conducted a promotion with the gun lobby’s group, whose infamous insistence of absolute gun rights has long been the most feared voice in the Republican political universe.

Combs’ sponsorship is part of the NRA’s outreach to young people, who they desperately need to persuade that America’s hideous gun violence is normal in the face of every other civilized country in the world having sensible gun laws. The NRA’s website explains:

NRA Country is a celebration of American values. Respect. Honor. Freedom. It’s a lifestyle and a bond between the best and brightest in country music and hard-working Americans.

NRA Country will be involved in causes that defend our values and it will empower our artist friends who promote these values to encourage our next generation of leaders.

Shamefully, Combs has posted multiple messages on social media about his own safety, yet steadfastly refuses to speak to his 700,000 social media followers about the lax gun laws that permit literally anyone off the street to buy high-volume magazines and assault-style rifles, which ultimately led to the mass murder of his fans at a show.

Luke Combs has taken to social media three times since the Las Vegas massacre. hasn’t once addressed the root cause of the murder of 58 of his fans and injury to over 400 people, which is about 1 of every 50 people who paid to see his act.

He hasn’t once addressed the root cause of the murder of 58 of his fans and injury to over 400 people, which is about 1 of every 50 people who paid to see his act.

As the NRA’s top performer at the Route 91 Country Music festival tragedy, Luke Combs is in a unique position to speak out against the gun laws that led to his fans being murdered, virtually in front of his eyes.

Combs could tell his fans that the only way they’ll truly be safe from mass murder at his shows is if laws are passed to restrict the casual ownership, purchase, and resale of high-powered AR-15-style weapons and expanded magazines.

But Luke Combs hasn’t said a single word about the NRA’s tragic gun laws which culminated in last night’s outrageous tragedy.

The NRA has politicized country music, their pro-gun laws have wounded country music fans, so now is the time to speak about America’s problem with gun violence and the terrible laws that enable mass murder.

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

 

 

Harvey Weinstein was apologetic and contrite during the Board of Directors meeting Tuesday when he resigned under pressure from the Board … sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ.

We’re told there was no screaming, no yelling, no anger. Harvey Weinstein told the Board, “I have a real problem,” and then apologized for the “trouble and confusion” he caused TWC.

We’re told Weinstein, who was on speaker phone from Arizona, told the Board he needed to build a new life and move on.

Our sources say everyone sounded conciliatory … partly because the handwriting was on the wall.  The Board made it clear Weinstein had a legal obligation to resign from the Board after it ratified his firing from TWC. He did just that.

Harvey, we’re told, was “peaceful” during the meeting and Bob was subdued.

We’re told the sense of the Board is that Harvey Weinstein will not force his firing to arbitration or court.

Our sources say both Harvey and Bob Weinstein have an overriding interest in making sure Colony Capital succeeds in restructuring the company — money. The each have roughly 21% equity interest in TWC, and if the company fails, they walk away with nothing.

As one source put it, “Harvey and Bob have a huge stake in making sure Colony Capital can put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”

Trump’s Net Worth Plummets By $600 Million

 

As much as Donald Trump loves to brag about how rich he is, turns out he’s a lot less wealthy than he was a year ago.

Forbes magazine has just released their annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans has some very bad news for the Donald: His net worth has fallen drastically by $600 million, meaning he’s only worth an estimated $3.1 billion. That drops him 92 spots on the Top 400 list, from #146 to #248.

Ouch!

What led to the sudden drop in Trump’s worth? Forbes notes:

“A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign.”

Ironically, America’s richest people are richer than they were in 2016, but not Trump.

For the 24th year in a row, Bill Gates tops the list, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion. Here’s the rest of the top 10:

  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon, $67 billion
  • Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, $65.5 billion
  • Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, $55.5 billion
  • Larry Ellison, Oracle, $49.3 billion
  • Michael Bloomberg, Bloomberg LP, $45 billion
  • Charles Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • David Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • Larry Page, Google, $48.5 billion
  • Sergey Brin, Google, $37.5 billion

And Trump fared even worse on the Bloomberg’s worldwide billionaires list, which rates his worth at $2.86 billion. That doesn’t even qualify him to be named as one of the 500 richest people in the world.

Trump Just Spread This Horrible Lie About the Last Few Presidents

 

ust a day after Donald Trump’s controversial blatantly false remarks that former President Barack Obama and the other presidents didn’t call the families of soldiers killed in action ignited the internet, the president is at it again. At a radio event at the White House, Trump doubled-down on his comments, telling Fox News Radio host Brian Killmeade, “I mean, you could ask General [John] Kelly did he get a call from Obama. You could ask other people. I don’t know what Obama’s policy was.”

By General John Kelly, Trump was referring to his beleaguered chief of staff, who tragically lost his son in 2010. First Lieutenant Robert Michael Kelly was leading a unit when he stepped on a concealed explosive device.

Kelly – *understandably* – didn’t comment on Trump’s allegations, and while former White House aides can’t remember Obama calling him, they do remember that the former president did something even better than call…
