  • White House says Prince concert for 500 was ‘private’

    When is a White House event for 500 people considered “private?” They won’t say. Nor would they say, in advance, that hundreds of guests were expected on Saturday night for a soiree and serenade from Prince, as guests of the President and First Lady. All White House spokesman Josh Earnest would say about the Saturday event was that the First Family paid for it (though he wouldn’t elaborate on how much it cost, or whether things like security were also covered).

    At the White House today, Press Secretary Josh Earnest defended Saturday night’s “private” concert with Prince. Although rumors had surfaced about the concert, the White House was silent about the event that brought up to 500 people to the event and did not inform the press about it. News of the event quickly leaked on social media – including posts from Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Rev. Al Sharpton. Earnest indicated that the Obama family paid for the event at the White House, telling reporters that the first couple “did it on their own dime.” When repeatedly questioned about

    Administration officials are remaining tight-lipped on a private party featuring Prince and Stevie Wonder at the White House over the weekend. During Monday's daily briefing, reporters drilled White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest for details on the star-studded event, which was not included in the President's public schedule, but was documented by guests on social media. "The President and First Lady did hold a private party at the White House over the weekend, but given the private nature of that event I don't have a lot of details to discuss from here," Earnest said.

In an hour-long speech, the heir to the throne argued that man's destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions - but particularly those of Islam. He said the current 'division' between man and nature had been caused not just by industrialisation, but also by our attitude to the environment - which goes against the grain of 'sacred traditions'.

    "...We are begging to be destroyed. I hope everyone is feeling good about themselves in the process. That’s what this is all about, “look at me, I’m such a humanitarian because I pacify terrorists, I'm such a diplomat…” They gave Yasser Arafat a friggin Nobel Peace Prize!... I cannot say I’m surprised by Murdoch’s selling us out. Just because I prefer Fox News over the others, I have no delusions about this guy. It is clear Murdoch has put his back pocket ahead of US national security and national morality. Murdoch through the Fox Network is the biggest purveyor of...

    It was a stand out moment that many considered to be the highlight of the Grammy awards, and one that the rest of the night's performers were hard pushed to top. With their late father absent from proceedings, Michael Jackson's children Prince Michael and Paris took to the stage at the Staples Centre to accept the lifetime achievement award on their father's behalf.

    Prince has come out with a tribute song to his favorite NFL team. The song is titled “Purple & Gold” and even has a marching band beat. As a Prince fan (well, at least a long time ago), I say this song isn’t half bad and the more I listen to it, the more it grows on me. But I’ll tell you right now….this doesn’t even compare to the Super Bowl Shuffle. Then again, I am more of a Bears fan. (Warning: only Viking or Prince fans should listen to the song. Even some Viking fans will despise it)

    Global Village Idiot Blog ^ | 2/24/09 | Henry Halloway
    Read how I got kicked out of Hollywood here! Read my screenplay Global Village Idiot here for free! Every blog needs a signature buzzword or catchphrase that immediately identifies the site in the mind of the reader. Instapundit has "Heh." Michelle Malkin has "Unhinged."  And Daily Kos has "Chimpy". In fact, Daily Kos has 11,100 "Chimpys."    Heh. Unhinged. To close this buzzword/catchphrase blogging-gap, I hereby announce "The Global Village Idiot of the Week" award. Yes, each week I will scan the globe to bring you the biggest environmentalist whacko that the World Wide Web can offer. And no, Al...

    American Spectator ^ | 1/15/09 | Hal G.P. Colebatch
    The British media is in one of its periodic fits of moralizing hysteria and convulsion over the fact that Prince Harry called a fellow officer a "Paki" -- a not-particularly-derogatory diminutive of "Pakistani" -- during Army training three years ago when aged 21, and long before his recent front-line service in Afghanistan. (Perhaps I could still sue someone over the fact that as an Australian in London I was frequently called an Aussie, but that's another story.)

    Prince, the gender-bending Minnesota rocker who now lives in California and makes the rounds as a Jehovah's Witness, spoke out in a newly released interview that the Bible opposes homosexuality and God has said "enough." The comments from the Grammy-winning musician, who for decades has graced concert stages in high heels, makeup and flamboyant garb, appear in the Nov. 24 issue of New Yorker. "So here's how it is," Prince began, "You've got the Republicans, and basically they want to live according to this." He pointed to a Bible. "But there's the problem of interpretation, and you've got some churches,...

    I attend the "fine" learning "establishment" known as LHS, Laurel High School (and before anyone says anything, I chose to go to this school because I felt it was my duty as a Catholic Republican to actually be someone who's gonna stand up for what I believe, evangilize, if you will.) I'm in AP Government there along with two honors courses and three regular (one which is a Junior/Senior class, Psychology, while I, myself, am a Sophomore) classes. Our lunch period is known as "Spartan Hour" (our school mascot is the Spartan -which is SO epic, only reason I like...
