Right off the bat, Microsoft started their conference off by announcing that their console, previously nicknamed “Scorpio” was officially coming out this year and is called the Xbox One X. Now, while this name might seem cheesy at first, I actually think this is a smart move from Microsoft, for what they’re going with this console cycle. Rather than taking the typical stance of releasing a new console and killing off the previous one, (RIP WiiU and 3DS) Microsoft decided to create a console family out of the Xbox One generation.
Several cities across America today held what were supposed to be civil demonstrations against Sharia Law. The demonstrations were put on by a group called ACT for America, which is a non-profit anti-terror group in the U.S. which was founded by terror expert (and terror survivor) Brigitte Gabriel. The point of the protests was to raise awareness about the barbaric system that is Sharia Law, as well as point out to citizens that Islamic beliefs, whether extreme or moderate, are not compatible with western values, ethics, and laws.
What Comey said at the hearing was nothing short of incredible, in the sense that it not only failed to bring up anything of negative impact on Trump, but instead accidentally incriminated several other figures including Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton, Comey’s friends, and Comey himself. Important to take away from the hearing is that in all actuality, Trump was never under investigation from the FBI about Russian collusion, which not only immediately invalidated the entire liberal narrative, but also raised the question of who the media used as a source about this in the first place. Your guess is as good as mine, but one thing is for sure, it definitely wasn’t someone from the actual FBI, as they would know whether or not there was an investigation going on in their own bureau.
To recap, America is currently backing Saudi Arabia, who also funds ISIS who we’re enemies with. Iran is allied with Russia, and enemies with basically everyone else, but especially Saudi and ISIS after the terror attack. An interesting nation to watch during this is Israel, who although allied with the U.S. primarily, doesn’t have bad blood with Russia, although it is essentially mortal enemies with Iran, who prays for Israel’s destruction. You confused yet? Imagine how Trump feels.
Right off the bat I wanna say that I think this is one of the few movies in modern times that gets both female empowerment and tonal consistency right. While I could write a whole other blog about how I think this is a perfect example of a feminist film, my brief summary of what elevates this movie above others is that Wonder Woman is constructive, while other so called “feminist films” are destructive.
In case you missed it, Ariana Grande, or at least Ariana Grande’s publicity team, thought it was best after the Manchester terror attack to do a “One Love” concert, whose proceeds would go towards charity and whose main message would be one of love. All of the hottest names in pop music like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber took time out of their busy schedules to perform in Manchester, each person wearing some casual looking outfit and playing songs that promoted peace, love and unity, blaming all the hatred that exists in the world for the tragedies that have taken place.
In case you’re unaware of what’s been going on in the world for the past decade or so, practically all of western civilization has been engaged in an active war against several nations in the Middle East as well as groups who engage in/generally support the notion of terrorism. This has been a messy and unorganized decade, that if you totalled it up, has led to so many pointless and tragic deaths that if one thought about it too much it might traumatize and jade an entire generation (not like that’s happened or anything).
So instead, I want to cover the almost ubiquitous outcry that we’ve all seen come from celebrities, politicians, and other global elites over Trump’s bold decision. The trick with outrage is to recognize that, where there’s smoke there’s fire, and if every person who has opposed Trump and his America first policies is upset about pulling out of the Paris Accords, then maybe the reasoning goes deeper than them being concerned about the environment (hint: it is)
