With A Rebel Smell…They Yell!


Deplorables … living up to their nature!!
‘These assholes are crawling out of the cracks … crevices and caves of death with the vigor of any zombie from The Walking Dead … Fictitious or Forthcoming.’

GetRealWithDarylandDeVon@.Wordpress.Com

Another rally full of pig-fucking patriots screaming obscenities at folks they disagree with. Whether it’s the media…FACTS…or OBAMA-These assholes are crawling out of the cracks…crevices and caves of death with the vigor of any zombie from The Walking Dead-Fictitious or Forthcoming.

Faux News convinced them that their hate was great long before they EVER became devout followers of Trumplethinskin.However, all they equate to=Losers from the moment of their less than immaculate conceptions…Infinitely incapable of being human…

Yet…They remain a corrosive element capable of permanently ruining the best of U.S.

Karma WILL bathe and provide a proper burial for these stinking, self-loathing son-of-a-bitches…Beam Them Up beginning this Fall&2020=VOTE!!!~Daryl~…(Image Not Mine) but still❤️❤️❤️

W3-3

~~August 1, 2018~~ 

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2018

~We Three~

THE POWER OF MUSIC

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent has begun

I finally am caught up with the recorded episodes.

Music is powerful. It heals, it inspires, it speaks.

In season 13, NBC’s America’s Got Talent follows Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, and host Tyra Banks in their talent search, showcasing unique performers from across the country.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

We Three will be hitting the stage again in the third round of judge cuts on ‘AGT.’ This sibling band stole our hearts when they first performed.

Here’s what you need to know about them!

The judge cuts continue on America’s Got Talent season 13

1. Mel B and Tyra Banks cried during We Three’s first audition. The siblings – Josh, Bethany, and Manny – performed their original song “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away.” The song was written in the perspective of their mother, who passed away from cancer two years ago. The performance moved Mel B to tears because she also lost her father to cancer.

2. Their mother tragically died from cancer, and they honor her through music. Josh, Bethany, and Manny’s mom was diagnosed with cancer in Sept. 2015 and died four months later, according to KGW8. Writing “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away” was therapeutic for the siblings.

“I think it was so impactful because it was like we got to have another conversation with her.

Every time we listen to it, we get to have another conversation with her,” Manny told the outlet.

3. We Three has released a number of songs already. On the band’s official website, We Three has a number of songs available for fans to listen to, including “Lifeline” and a 4-song EP.

4. They want to “spread light and love” with their music. Fame has nothing to do with why these siblings want to make music. “It’s our way to connect with people, spread light and love and spread the vision of hope for a better tomorrow,” they told Portland Notes. 

“We hope to encourage and support people right where they’re at in their lives through our music.”

5. All three band members know how to play instruments and sing. They all took private lessons on the piano and later explored other instruments, they also revealed to Portland Notes. Josh plays piano and drums, while Bethany plays bass. Manny plays the guitar. “We learned to sing and play simultaneously,” they told the outlet.

Treason and the Embracing of Fascism


I believe that the point of no return has been reached and crossed!!
‘In the past two years we have witnessed such sociopathic behavior from 45 and the entire GOP and what we have witnessed can’t be undone–it cannot be taken back.’

Social Justice For All

I have spent many weeks working on this particular article, as it has been eating at me and has been the cause of great consternation. While I typically do not reach out to 45’s base supporters, I am reaching out now, as I am exceedingly nonplussed. My observations are that continued support of 45 in the wake of his behavior in the last two years provides overwhelming evidence of a disturbing embracing of fascism and a complete lack of understanding of how a democracy operates, not to mention the overwhelming evidence of how racism unites a huge portion of the population in the United States.

In the past two years we have witnessed such sociopathic behavior from 45 and the entire GOP and what we have witnessed can’t be undone–it cannot be taken back. We now have to look at how do we repair the monumental damage done by this…
