CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Delivers Emotional Tribute to Christine Blasey Ford
In the last moments of her CNN show, at the end of a very long week in which the nation heard Christine Blasey Ford’s detailed memories of how Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her in high school, Brooke Baldwin shared a message with viewers:
“What we witnessed in that hearing was nothing short of extraordinary,” Baldwin said.
“Put the partisan politics and the insults and the spin to one side.
I want to mark this pivotal moment in American history when sexual assault, something that doesn’t often elicit more than a shameful whisper, is thrust into the open on national television.”
“This is a pivotal moment in America for all of us,” she said.
“This matters. This moment is bigger than politics. It’s about mothers and fathers raising boys to become men. What good comes of all of this? What are we going to learn? It’s a generational opportunity to better ourselves in how we relate to each other as women and men.”
~Thy Rock ‘N’ Roll Holiness Electrifies In Amped Up Musical Event~
Yesterday, on Easter Sunday, I was visiting family to celebrate the occasion.
I had set my DVR in case I wasn’t home before the show began … and that was the case.
You see, back in 1970, when the LP was released, it became one of my favorite musical ever. I would stay in my room, lyrics in hand, headphones in place … till the wee hours in the morning listening to the music over and over.
Watching the show last night lead to many happy memories and moments of amazing flashbacks.
To my surprise, I remembered most of the lyrics.
For me, back then, the musical represented a state of the times … these being the times of Jesus Christ and the times when the musical production was released. To me, it was an attempt to explain the story of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Judas, the Apostles and the politico-social reality of the era. It was also an attempt to bring humanity to the characters.
I found it quite interesting that 48 years after the initial release, the message still rang true and applied to the times we are currently living.
I definitely loved the concert.
I think the set, the musicians, the development concepts and the performances were beyond amazing.
John Legend, Sara Barielles, Alice Cooper and Brandon Victor Dixon were flawless.
In other words, I loved it!
It’s great that I have it recorded and can watch it over and over and over.
Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept album before its Broadway debut in 1971.
The musical is mostly sung-through, with little spoken dialogue. The story is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’s life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible.
The work’s depiction offers a free interpretation of the psychology of Jesus and the other characters. A large part of the plot focuses on the character of Judas, who is depicted as a tragic figure dissatisfied with the direction in which Jesus steers his disciples. Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities (as well as slang) pervade the lyrics, and ironic allusions to modern life are scattered throughout the depiction of political events. Stage and film productions accordingly contain many intentional anachronisms.
It’s only appropriate that NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert aired on Easter Sunday.
There is no better way to celebrate the Holy holiday than with an Easter egg hunt in the day and a live TV adaptation of an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical at night. And when it comes to NBC live musical events, Jesus Christ Superstar ranks at the top.
What could have felt like a dated rock opera was more like an uproarious arena concert filled with screaming fans, frenetic lights, blaring speakers, pyrotechnics and a group of musicians and performers fueled with the spirit of a chaotic electric guitar wildly flailing about – just how Jesus would have wanted it.
Just watch this moment, without trying to change it at all.

Two Latina Sisters Trolled Eric Trump on the Campaign Trail in the Best Way Possible
Donald Trump loves to talk about how much he loves “the Latinos” but that “appreciation” apparently doesn’t extend to actually learning Spanish, as sisters Annie and Ceci Cardelle can attest.
These two new American treasures (and Hillary supporters) heard Eric Trump was campaigning for his dad in their town of Salisbury, North Carolina, and decided to show their displeasure on their shirts, on which they wrote in black sharpie,
“Latinas Contra Trump.”
The pair, who are second-generation Cuban-Americans, told Buzzfeed that they ” were protesting the Trump campaign’s particular treatment of Hispanics and Latino immigrants in this country.”
I made this video with the intention to help others in a motivational/inspirational form.
The clips and music I have used I do not own in most cases. My understanding is that it is in correlation to Fair Right Use, however given that it is open to interpretation, if any owners of the content clips would like me to remove the video I have no problem and will do as fast as possible, please Email me if you have any concerns at Navidbakhsayesh@gmail.com.
These videos are transformative in a positive sense, I take clips from various sources to help create an atmospheric feeling that will help people in hard situations in their life.
