In a fraught moment of political protest across the country, the live mic at televised award shows has become a potent weapon.Image result for hollyweird

As such, Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich has a message for those who will take the stage on Sunday’s ceremony: Bring it on.

Ehrlich has no reservations about political messages or anti-President Trump statements flying during CBS’ three and a half hour Grammycast. Artists expressing passionate opinions about real-life issues are the stuff of memorable moments, he said.

“One of the tenets of our show is artistic freedom, and over the years we’ve shown we do believe in it,” Ehrlich told Variety. “How many more times do we need to hear ‘I’d like to thank my publicist, my agent, my wife and kids.’ The great acceptance speeches are ones that have a point of view and are more personal.”

The only guidelines on speech that Ehrlich has to keep an eye (and ear) on is profanity, given the potential for CBS to be hit with FCC fines if F-bombs fly before 10 p.m. But almost everything else is fair game.

“One of the things I’ve learned from working with artists for 40 years is that they are deep-thinking, vital individuals who have interests that cover a broad cover a broad spectrum of subjects and passions,” he said. “We should certainly allow for it on the broadcast.”

Ehrlich notes that the Grammy Awards as an institution has addressed issues of social justice and equality on the telecast in recent years.

The entertainment idiots didn't affect the election so, what is the point to have them give political comments on the Grammy Awards? A solution to the immigrant problem would be for each wealthy entertainer to adopt about 1000 immigrants and live with them. We will notice a remarkable change in their opinions thereafter! 

Their speaches will go unheard.

What if they want to be political and they're PRO-Trump?  Will the mic accidentally go on the fritz?

  1. I don't think it matters, they won't have any viewers any way.

Sure they will:  liberals, millennials, snowflakes....

Bought and paid for by George Soreass !

I have not watched their stupid participation trophy award crap for the last 40 years. They play make believe and if I want to do that I will with my grandkids. They are nothing but a cabel of fools.

The fools think that the audience cares about their opinions.  What a joke, is this comedy standup time?

Who really cares???

There are a lot of more important things to worry about, besides those idiots!

i aint watching this crap...i cant stand being preached to by this asinine bunch of whack jobs.

Now the elites seem to be proud of their positions as the HERDING DRIVERS of the populous. No doubt they must bow down to the Super rich world owners who OWN Hollywood. Who also provide their OUTRAGEOUS COSTS for their performing. in case you HOLLYWOOD IDIOTS, don't realize it..., EVERYONE..., is an actor. Shakespeare knew it..., and you simple idiots..., are so illiterate..., you failed to recognize it!!! When the NWO monsters take over..., guess who will be least in demand to influence the HERD? .........., IT'S YOU BOZO!!!

The Grammys can take flight to hell with the Oscars.
There was a time when Hollywood was the most powerful arm of the American culture today it is filth and garbage.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
