Good grief: Hollywood Reporter praises Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s Super Bowl performance for “their powerful but subtle statements on Puerto Rico and U.S. immigration policy”

Who wants to tell them?

Excerpts from THR article:

“The multihyphenate Bronx-born star donned a feathered Puerto Rican flag and featured what some Twitter users are interpreting as “children in cages” during her performance.

In both a direct call to her Puerto Rican heritage and what some believe is a response to President Donald Trump’s child immigration policies, Lopez brought her daughter, Emme, out to perform a moving snippet of her single “Let’s Get Loud.”

Behind Emme were a group of children, all holding hands and dressed in white outfits featuring sparkling American flags on the tops. Behind the young singer was Shakira on drums, and around her other children, also dressed in white and sitting in what some have interpreted as “cages” of light. A moment later, Lopez draped herself in a feathered Puerto Rican flag while delivering a rendition of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA.”

Two Latinas doing this at this time in this country — it’s just very empowering for us,” Lopez said during the Super Bowl press conference last Thursday. “For me, I’m very proud to be able to help set and push forth that message.”

An “empowering” performance…

“I think it’s a very important moment for our community, for the Latino community, in this country,” singer, songwriter and dancer Shakira followed up. “And I think the Super Bowl is a very American event, as American as it can get. I think it’s very nice to see that it’s also going to be a reminder of the heritage of this country, which is one of diversity.”

This performance would have been more realistic had they used warehouses for props.

Olay teams up with pro-aborts to #MakeSpaceForWomen

Olay, owned by the progressive-run Procter & Gamble, has teamed up with several liberals to promote a Super Bowl ad that advances women in space. Biased journalist Katie Couric tweeted the following ad promotion:

“I’m so excited to be teaming up with @BusyPhilipps @TherealTaraji @Lilly @Astro_Nicole for @olayskin’s female-led #SuperBowl ad! Olay is making an impact by donating $1 to @girlswhocode for every tweet that uses #MakeSpaceForWomen! #ad”

So how do the women participating in this Olay ad “make space for women?”

By promoting the murder of innocent girls in the womb.

Actress Busy Philipps has long been a proponent of abortion. Last year she discussed how she was “genuinely really scared for women and girls all over this country” because of Georgia’s abortion bill. She had an abortion at 15 and “can not [sic] sit idly by while women’s rights are stripped away.”

Kind of hard to #MakeSpaceForWomen while stripping their right to life away from them in the womb.

Katie Couric (l) and Cecile Richards (r)

Back in 2017, long-time left-wing “journalist” Katie Couric fawned over then “badass” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. From Newsbusters:

Katie Couric unabashedly abandoned her “journalist” cover earlier this week to show solidarity for America’s largest abortion provider. On Wednesday, anchor Katie Couric interviewed “badass” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on “How to Raise a Feminist” at the Women in the World Summit held in New York City. Much of the conversation focused on Planned Parenthood, now “under siege” and “assault” in the political world.”

The irony from the introduction at this summit on how to define a feminist? “A child given every opportunity to pursue his or her dreams regardless of gender norms.”

Kind of hard to #MakeSpaceForWomen to be given an opportunity to pursue her dreams if she’s murdered in the womb.

But that’s liberal logic for ‘ya: It’s not designed to make sense.

Tom Brady attributes his Super Bowl wins to ‘rituals’ performed by his witch wife

Tom Brady, 41, the New England Patriots quarterback, has won a phenomenal six Super Bowls, the most of any football player ever.

Last Thursday, February 11, during a shave for charity event at Gillette’s World Shaving Headquarters in Boston, Brady said he attributes his Super Bowl wins to the pre-game “rituals” performed by his wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, 38, a self-described witch.

CBS Boston reports that as he had his playoff beard shaved off for charity, Brady told the audience, who intermittently laughed uproariously because, you know, witchcraft is just so darn funny:

“I’ve learned a lot from my wife over the years. She’s so about the power of intention, you know, and believing things that are really going to happen. And she always makes a little altar for me at the game because she just wills it so much.

So she put together a little altar for me that I could bring with pictures of my kids, and I have these little special stones and healing stones and protection stones and she has me wear a necklace and take these drops she makes. I say all these mantras.

I stopped questioning her a long time ago. I did. I just shut up and listened. And at first I thought this is kind of crazy. And then, about four years ago, we were playing the Seahawks and she said, ‘You better listen to me, this is your year, but this is all the things you’re going to have to do to win.’ And I did all those things, and by God, you know, it worked.

And then in 2016, it was about early January, she said, “You know how much I love you, but this is not gonna be your year.’ I said, “What does 60 look like?” She said, “60 is going to be your year.’ So it was early January this year, I said, asking, ‘Babe, do we have a chance?” She said, ‘Yeah, but you’re going to have to do a lot of work, and you’re really going to have to listen to me.’ So, man, I listen to her. Right after the game, she said, ‘See, I did a lot of work.’ She said, ‘You’re lucky you married a witch – I’m just a good witch.'”

You can listen to Brady for yourself by going to the CBS Boston video.

Raised a Catholic, Brady and Bündchen married on February 26, 2009, in a small Catholic ceremony in Santa Monica, California. Brady’s health regimen includes Transcendental Meditation and yoga.

And In Sports Today…..

The coach put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing missing was a good quarterback. He scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn’t find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

One night, while watching CNN, he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yds away.
He threw another grenade 75 yds away, right into a chimney.
Then he threw another one at a passing car – going 90 mph.
BULLSEYES. Every one of them.

“I’ve got to get this guy,” Coach said to himself. “He has the perfect arm.”
So, he brings him to the states and teaches him the great game of football, and, the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.
The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, he only wants to call his mother.

“Mom,” he says into the phone, “I just won the Super Bowl!”

“I don’t want to talk to you,” the old Muslim woman says. “You are not my son.”

“I don’t think you understand, Mother,” the young man pleads. “I’ve won the greatest sporting event in the world. I’m here among thousands of adoring fans.”

“No, let me tell you!” his mother retorts. “At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn’t get raped.” The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says, “I will never forgive you for making us move to Chicago .”

Leroy and The Gator


 
A filthy rich Florida man decided that he wanted to throw a party and invited all of his buddies and neighbors.
He also invited Leroy, the only Redneck in the neighborhood.
He held the party around the pool in the backyard of his mansion.
Leroy was having a good time drinking, dancing, eating shrimp, oysters and BBQ and flirting with all the women.
At the height of the party, the host said, ‘I have a 10 foot man-eating gator in my pool and I’ll give a million dollars to anyone who has the nerve to jump in.
The words were barely out of his mouth when there was a loud splash. Everyone turned around and saw Leroy in the pool!
Leroy was fighting the gator and kicking its rear! Leroy was jabbing it in the eyes with his thumbs, throwing punches, head butts and choke holds, biting the gator on the tail and flipping it through the air like some kind of Judo Instructor.
The water was churning and splashing everywhere. Both Leroy and the gator were screaming and raising heck.
Finally Leroy strangled the gator and let it float to the top like a dime store goldfish.
Leroy then slowly climbed out of the pool. Everybody was just staring at him in disbelief.
Finally the host says, ‘Well, Leroy, I reckon I owe you a million dollars.’
‘No, that’s okay. I don’t want It,’ said Leroy.
The rich man said, ‘Man, I have to give you something You won the bet. How about half a million bucks then?’
No thanks, I don’t want it,’ answered Leroy.
The host said, ‘Come on, I insist on giving you something. That was amazing. How about a new Porsche and a Rolex and some stock options?’
Again Leroy said no.
Confused, the rich man asked, ‘Well, Leroy, then what do you want?’
Leroy said, ‘I want the name of the sumbich who pushed me in the pool!’

"Scrape the money together…I'm worth it"

Narcissist:  a person who is overly self-involved, and often vain and selfish.

Full of herself...


Madonna, part of the 1% with a net worth of $500 to $650 million, has a new album coming out and is performing in this Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show so she’s out in the media promoting herself.  She gave an interview to Newsweek magazine where stated the following.
She’s not ready to talk about specific plans for this go-round (refering to concert tour), but it’s safe to assume that her ticket prices will continue to be astronomically expensive, Great Recession be damned. “So start saving your pennies now,” she says, sounding annoyed that any-one would suggest these prices are prohibitive. “People spend $300 on crazy things all the time, things like handbags. So work all year, scrape the money together, and come to my show. I’m worth it.
Of course, Madonna is aware that people are having a rough time. A few years ago she got filleted for saying the Big Apple had been more fun back in the day, before it was all taken over by hedge-fund types. “It kinda was,” she says, unapologetic as ever. Consequently, she was “excited” by the Occupy Wall Street movement, for a number of reasons, not the least of which was that Sean Lennon and Rufus Wainwright did a rendition of “Material Girl” at one of the early rallies. “I thought that was cool,” she says, bringing the discussion back to her favorite subject: herself.
I will watch the Super Bowl but not this woman singing.  Instead, I’ll be switching over the Animal Planet to watch the Puppy Bowl!
