 “Don’t Lie to Me”

Barbra is Watching Drumpf

One of my of all time, favorite music icons is using her platform to express her feelings about the reality which the ‘squatter in the White House’ has with the truth and with facts.

One awesome voice speaking for many of us!!

Barbra Streisand is always watching Drumpf 

When we spoke, she had just tweeted about him and read it aloud:

“All President Trump cares about is winning.

He said it during his campaign, and he says it now.

But what do we all lose as he wins?”

Streisand, no stranger to politics throughout her career, is releasing her first album of original songs since 2005, called Walls, on November 2.

Late last month, she released the album’s first single, “Don’t Lie to Me,” which is a direct address to the president. And on Tuesday, Streisand released the music video – the first she’s ever directed – complete with images of protests and even a sign somewhere in there that says “Stop Kavanaugh.”

“I’m just so concerned with our country and the world,” she said. “When I say in the song ‘we all lose,’ do we lose our integrity as a nation? Do we lose our reputation in the world? One of the songs talks about a beacon of light, and ‘Lady Liberty’ talked about the danger in the sound of silence, when people don’t speak up, when people don’t vote. And now we have a leader who can’t be trusted. The way he pushed Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court to protect himself is unconscionable; we have a leader and now a Supreme Court justice who tells lies.”

She added that it’s the young people of this country who are already living out the message of her new album and who have already set the example of what good activism looks like.

“As I say in the booklet of the new album, I’ve been especially moved by the young people in the United States who have found their voice and are demanding to be heard,” she said.

“They’re more interested in building bridges than walls; they are the very definition of hope.

They’re on my mind, and I dedicate this album to them.”

OVER-RATED, OVER-DECORATED,OVER-BERATED

ROUND TWO

Meryl wins also this round!

This is one of my favorite actresses. I grew up with Meryl around.

We are almost the same age.

She’s an American icon.

And she’s standing up for us!

She’s standing up for American values and as an ally of the LGBT community.

Thank you, Meryl.

Rock on!

Meryl Streep Responds to Drumpf Calling Her “Over-rated”

Meryl Streep likes to load her dishwasher. She likes to sit quietly and read. She likes to garden. Most of all, as she told the audience at the Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala on Saturday night, February 11, she likes to “stay the fuck home.”

But the actress, who, along with late-night host Seth Meyers, was the recipient of the HRC Ally for Equality Award, left the house to stand in support of her LGBTQ friends in the Drumpf era.

She said all of this during her speech without even mentioning the president’s name.

The legendary actress, who previously delivered a fiery take-down of Drumpf at the Golden Globes (also without saying his name), told attendees at the HRC gala that in the end, the current administration could serve as a valuable wake-up call.

“If we live through this precarious moment . . . if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we have much to thank this president for, because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is,”

she said to the crowd gathered at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Streep experienced Drumpf’s famously thin skin after her Globes oration in January when he tweeted that the actress was “over-rated.”

The actress and honoree also had a response for Drumpf’s claim.

“Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated, and currently, over-berated actress . . . of my generation,” she joked.

“But that is why you invited me here! Right?”

EXTINGUISHED FLAME

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

The New Yorker’s Next Cover Features Lady Liberty with Her Light Snuffed Out

“It was the symbol of American values.

Now it seems that we are turning off the light.”

The New Yorker has revealed the cover for its upcoming issue which will feature an image of Lady Liberty with her flame extinguished, a powerful illustration that comes amid the continued fallout from Drumpf’s executive order banning refugee resettlement and travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.

#HamiltonCast …. “To VP-elect Pence …. Message on behalf of ALL of us …. “!!

REPRESENT ALL OF US

We all should know, by now, what HAMILTON is.

It’s a totally successful Broadway show which made history with the number of Tony nominations and wins it has received.

Notice Mr. Donald’s reaction to the message delivered by the cast!

How petty, insignificant and unreal can he be?

Harassment? Apology? Why?

There was none of that!

Can’t VP-elec Pence defend himself …

(if there was a need for such defense?)

Hamilton

An American Musical is a musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The show, inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow, achieved both critical acclaim and box office success.

~Wikipedia~

Vice-president elect Mike Pence made a surprise visit to watch the award-winning Broadway show Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre Friday night, November 18, and received a loud chorus of boos from the audience as he made way to his seat.

At the conclusion of the show, cast members addressed Pence’s appearance – as a group locked in hand-to-hand – behind Brandon Victor Dixon who delivered the message noted above.
