    Americans seem to be hungry to Make America Great Again as they fill up venues again and again for billionaire presidential candidate Donald Trump, and the Baton Rouge River Center in Baton Rouge, AL is no exception. Trump attracted so many supporters that the rally was delayed as they waited for the thousands of people who were in a line wrapping around the arena to make their way in. Trump’s attendees smashed the previous record of legendary musician Elton John who pulled in 8,000 fans to hear him play. The Donald filled the seats with an estimated 12,000 supporters. **SNIP**...

    Elton, the "Gay" Dog, Spared the Gas Chamber A dog in Tennessee whose owner dumped it at a shelter because he thought it was gay was saved from euthanasia at the last minute by a kindhearted animal lover. The dog was left with a rabies control shelter in Jackson, Tenn., this week “not because he’s mean or tears things up… But because his owner says he’s gay!” the group Jackson TN Euthanasia, which tries to find homes for dogs in kill-shelters, posted on its Facebook page on Wednesday. “He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away because...

    In the world of self-righteous celebrity know-nothings and Hollywood learjet liberals who have never met a leftwing cause they didn't collectively embrace with the group-herd instinct, Elton John is a refreshing voice of independent thinking. Is he liberal? I'm sure he is. But he's not your typical Hollywood elitist: Fresh off a gig as Rush Limbaugh's wedding singer, the British icon performed Thursday in Tel Aviv, despite pressure from pro-Palestinian activists and fellow artists to boycott Israel following the flotilla debacle off the coast of Gaza. "Shalom, we are so happy to be back here! Ain't nothing gonna stop us...

    Why I am disappointed by Rush Limbaugh   Wednesday, June 09, 2010 Matt C Abbott   This column may open up a can of worms, but here it goes... I guess we conservatives (and, for the record, I don't consider "socially moderate" Republicans to be in the conservative camp) should be grateful that Rush Limbaugh, a prominent media critic of the left for a number of years, hasn't been silenced by the powers that be. However, as a pro-life, pro-family Catholic, I'm disappointed in Rush. He just got married for the fourth time and even paid Elton John, the anti-Christian...

    Elton John recently said that Jesus was a gay genius. Now, Elton’s theological ramblings aren’t to be taken too seriously but I think that there’s a lot of Elton Johns out there. By that I don’t mean there’s millions of flamboyant rockers with funny sunglasses. But I do think it’s rather telling that Elton sees Jesus as a homosexual and a genius as Elton himself is a homosexual and could easily be called a musical genius. Weird, huh? I don’t think Elton is alone in this kind of thinking. I think people often see Jesus in a narrow way, as...

    WASHINGTON -- Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said this week that the waters off the Atlantic coast hold some of the country's greatest wind energy potential, and he promised to move aggressively to develop plans to exploit the resource. In an interview with The Associated Press, Salazar also said he wants to review objections to oil and gas leasing in Alaska's Bristol Bay and the Chukchi Sea, where environmentalists argue that the threat to fisheries and polar bears has not been adequately examined, and off Virginia, where the governor has raised concerns.

    (CNN) – Alaska State Sen. Kim Elton, one of the leading officials to pursue an investigation of Gov. Sarah Palin during the heat of the presidential campaign, has taken a high-level job in the Interior Department. Palin reacted in a short statement Monday, the day Elton announced his move to Washington. “Senator Elton pledged his allegiance to President Obama last summer,” said the governor. “We wish him well as he moves on and hope that he uses this job for Alaska’s benefit.” Palin was the target of an official investigation last year over charges she improperly dismissed a public safety...

    NEW YORK, April 9 (Reuters) - British pop star Elton John, playing a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton in New York on Wednesday, said he was amazed at the misogyny of some in America and he hoped that wouldn't stop her being president. At the fund-raiser which Clinton's campaign manager said raised $2.5 million, John said there was no one more qualified to lead the United States into the next era. "Having said that, I never cease to be amazed at the misogynistic attitude of some people in this country. And I say to hell with them," he said, drawing cheers...

ADVERTISEMENT In an interview in Attitude magazine, which hits the newstands on Friday, John said the ceremony would be a small, private affair involving only himself and Furnish and their parents acting as witnesses. "Out of respect for their (our parents') support, we want to just keep it small -- not to make a ballyhoo of the ceremony," he told the gay lifestyle magazine. "There will...

John, opera diva Joan Sutherland, conductor John Williams and actors Warren Beatty, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee were honored Sunday with a star-studded tribute at The Kennedy Center. The six recipients of the 27th annual Kennedy Center Honors were saluted for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts.

    Shumen, Bulgaria - A Bulgarian farmer is demanding substantial damages in court after claiming the prize-winning pedigree pig he bought from a breeder was homosexual. Galen Dobrev, 43, told the court: "It's a disgrace, all he was interested in was other male pigs." The farmer took pictures of the gay pig to prove the 220-pound boar was homosexual and had fellow farmers testify on his behalf as to the pig's sexual preferences. He told the court that when his fellow farmers heard about the gay pig it had also been impossible to sell him - and in the end he...

    Elton John says he doesn't mean to throw tantrums -- it just comes with the territory of being creative. John has told Britain's Sunday Times magazine that his behaviour has changed since beating drug and alcohol addictions 14 years ago - "the rage and the temper are still there ... but it's part of being creative." The British superstar, famous for his outbursts, grabbed headlines last month when he cursed and shouted at Taiwanese photographers for surprising him as he arrived at Taipei airport, calling them "rude, vile pigs". At a London awards ceremony a week later, he launched into...
