  • 'Hotel California' and America's decomposing values; Why The Eagle's Hit Song was Prophetic

    "Hotel California," the signature song by the Eagles and probably their most popular, is a stinging critique and indictment of the American dream and the dominant consumer culture. There's a certain irony in that, since the band hit super-stardom early in their career in the seventies and quickly succeeded in reaching the ultimate American dream of becoming rich and famous. Like most rock bands, they emerged out of the sixties rebelling against the blandness and conformity of previous generations, but whether the band realized it or not, Hotel California is really a conservative song. It paints a picture of a...

    Since the late 1970s, the Dallas Cowboys have been known as “America’s Team.” In light of recent Trump White House statements, however, Dallas might want to consider handing that title over to the Philadelphia Eagles. "The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow,” the White House said in an eleventh-hour statement issued on Monday after learning that only two or three players, owner Jeff Lurie, and mascot Swoop were able (or willing) to meet President Donald Trump, as has become customary for championship teams in the U.S. “They disagree...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Eagles players and officials made individual decisions to not go to the White House for a scheduled celebration of their Super Bowl title, leaving two players actually planning to make the trip to Washington before the visit was canceled by President Donald Trump, according to players and a person familiar with the arrangements. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because of the sensitivity of the issues. All-Pro center Jason Kelce said players filled out forms anonymously indicating whether they wanted to go to the White House, not make the trip or go to Washington and...

    When people think of the liberal venom coming from MSNBC, many would single out Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell. But the 9am hour has quietly become another home on the network for angry rants. On Wednesday, guests compared Donald Trump to a dictator and somehow linked Trump’s White House speech on Tuesday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Talking about Trump’s patriotism event in the wake of cancelling the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles' appearance at the White House, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens linked: “This reminds me of certain regimes around the world. The Maduro regime...

    Eagles’ safety Malcolm Jenkins had a message to deliver Wednesday after President Trump abruptly canceled the Super Bowl champions’ visit to the White House on Tuesday. But instead of reading a statement or taking reporters’ questions after practice, Jenkins, an outspoken civil right activist and member of the Players Coalition, held up a series of signs and shook his head in silence. Reporters kept volleying questions at him anyway. Jenkins kept reaching for the next cue card. He held up one sign that read, “YOU AREN’T LISTENING” twice during the two-minute encounter.

    LevinTV host Mark Levin slammed the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday night on his radio show, calling their handling of the team’s White House visit a “complete setup.” According to a report from Politico, the White House was informed last week that 81 players were planning to attend the event. But on Monday, the Eagles organization notified the White House that only a handful of players and team representatives would attend. Levin went on a tirade against the Eagles for attempting to “sabotage” the president. Listen:

The mayor made the comments on CBSN on Tuesday morning after the White House disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from a celebration for the team's Super Bowl victory. "Cities need to stand up in this country, and many mayors have stood up in this country against this tyrant," Kenney said.

    Fox News is under fire Tuesday after the network aired images of the Philadelphia Eagles kneeling in prayer while an anchor discussed President Trump canceling the team’s invitation to the White House. Critics say the package makes it appear as if the Eagles are protesting during the national anthem — with Eagles tight end Zach Ertz calling the piece “propaganda.”

    Philadelphia’s mayor called President Trump a “fragile egomaniac,” and accused him of not being a “true patriot.” Mayor Jim Kenney released the following statement in response to Trump’s decision: The Eagles call the birthplace of our democracy home, so it’s no surprise that this team embodies everything that makes our country and our city great. Their athletic accomplishments on the field led to an historic victory this year.

    Mickey Jones had a most unusual career that included sitting behind Judas, as well as playing all manner of drug dealers and rough bikers and also standing in the lobby of the Hotel California. A Houston native, Jones worked as a drummer and then actor in a career that spanned more than 50 years. He was best known for playing Pete Bilker on TV's "Home Improvement," a role that gave him a catch phrase for the remainder of his life: "That would be me." Jones died Wednesday after a long illness. He was 76.

It looks as if the Philadelphia Eagles playbook has been expanded to include more than screen passes and flea flickers.Step 1: Win Super Bowl for first time in franchise history. Step 2: Watch as fans set fire to city, loot department stores and tear down street lights. Step 3: Turn victory into political statement so some players can be part of the #RESIST movement.Time Magazine reports that a number of players didn’t waste any time on celebrating or planning for the next season before they...
