Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Sends Trump Cease And Desist Letter, Gets Ruthless Response

Published

on

Donald Trump has another foe coming after him. This one is Steven Tyler, frontman of the world famous Aerosmith band. Tyler just sent Trump a cease and desist letter demanding that Trump stop playing Aerosmith songs at his rallies. The latest Trump rally had a song by Aerosmith playing as fans gathered there. Of course, it was Jim Acosta who flamed this fire a bit when he recorded it on video and posted it on Twitter.

Trump and Aerosmith have a feud that goes back quite a bit, as this isn’t the first time that Tyler has asked Trump to stop playing their music, according to reports. Trump had a good response back in the day when he claimed that by him playing Aerosmith songs at his events, he then gave Aerosmith more publicity than they’ve had in years. It’s a fact that Trump stated this and is quoted below. Whether or not the amount of publicity is able to be measured is unknown. However, Aerosmith hasn’t really been all that popular since the 90’s, and that was back when MTV still played at least a few songs per day compared to their run of the mill reality shows nowadays.

Here is Jim Acosta’s tweet. Some might say he was being a “rat” when he posted this video as if he was purposely trying to get Aerosmith’s attention to let them know that Trump was blasting their song. Anyone who’s a music fan and a Trump fan would know that just playing songs before an event does not necessarily mean the band supports the cause. It’s just music before an event and a good song is a good song. Nothing wrong with enjoying a little bit of old-fashioned rock music, right?

What’s wrong with playing a little bit of Aerosmith before a Trump rally? The last thing that people are thinking is if the musical artists are supporters. Maybe they just like the songs, like their president, and want to have a fun time. If Steven Tyler wants to be paid for his music, then that’s something different. It seems like they just don’t want to be mixed up in politics, or maybe they secretly don’t like Trump. Maybe we should ask Steven Tyler himself!

The Hill stated:

“Rock legend Steven Tyler has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the White House demanding that President Trump stop playing Aerosmith songs at his rallies.

“Tyler’s attorney, Dina LaPolt, sent the letter after Trump’s Tuesday night rally in West Virginia, as first reported by Variety. The band’s “Livin’ on the Edge” played as Trump supporters entered the Charleston Civic Center.

“LaPolt’s letter, a copy of which was obtained by Variety, notes that Trump was previously asked to stop using Aerosmith songs twice during his campaign.

“’Mr. Trump is creating the false impression that our client has given his consent for the use of his music, and even that he endorses the presidency of Mr. Trump,” the letter reads.

“LaPolt writes that Aerosmith fans have mistakenly believed that Tyler endorses Trump’s presidency and expressed as much on social media, and says that Trump’s use of the song is a violation of the Lanham Act.

“LaPolt said in the first two cease-and-desist letters, which were related to Trump’s use of “Dream On,” that the issue was neither personal nor political, but an issue of copyright. Tyler is a registered Republican.

“Trump said in 2015 that he had found a “better” song to play instead of “Dream On,” and boasted that the scandal gave Tyler “more publicity … than he’s gotten in 10 years.”

“A number of musical artists have requested that Trump not play their songs at public events, including R.E.M., Twisted Sister, and Elton John.”

Rolling Stone added this to the story:

“Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler has again sent President Trump a cease-and-desist letter for using the band’s music without permission at a political rally.

“In 2015, the singer’s legal team warned the then-Republican presidential candidate over his use of “Dream On” on the campaign trail. Three years later, a Trump rally Tuesday at West Virginia’s Charleston Civic Center featured Aerosmith’s 1993 hit “Livin’ on the Edge,” resulting in another cease-and-desist letter from Tyler, Variety reports.

“’By using ‘Livin’ On The Edge’ without our client’s permission, Mr. Trump is falsely implying that our client, once again, endorses his campaign and/or his presidency, as evidenced by actual confusion seen from the reactions of our client’s fans all over social media,” the cease-and-desist letter stated.

“’This specifically violates Section 43 of the Lanham Act, as it ‘is likely to cause confusion, or to cause mistake, or to deceive as to the affiliation, connection, or association of such person with another person.’”

“The letter also notes that Trump’s team has ignored the previous cease-and-desist from 2015, making this latest violation a “willful infringement. “What makes this violation even more egregious is that Mr. Trump’s use of our client’s music was previously shut down, not once, but two times, during his campaign for presidency in 2015,” the letter continued.”

Real American Tom Selleck Has Had Enough Of Rosie Trashing Trump, Hits Her Where It Hurts

Published

* By

Rosie O’Donnell tends to stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. It’s as if her foot was metal, and her mouth is a magnet. I guess it’s better than having her head shove where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s no surprise that O’Donnell is as far left as they come. She has made many inflammatory remarks on subjects she really doesn’t have a clue about. You can only imagine what her morning routine must be like. Waking up, pissed off looking in the mirror and pointing at herself ” You can do it, Rosie, Republicans are the enemy, You’re a Goddess”. I’ve got news for Rosie, there isn’t a bone in my body that thinks you’re a Goddess.

Day after day, night after night Rosie takes to Twitter and attacks President Trump, as well as his 62 million supporters.

I think it’s time Rosie is locked up in a mental hospital for a very long time because this woman is beyond couch time. No therapist can handle the insanity this woman spews. Rosie, along with 99% of Hollywood are all on the same brain wave, and it’s scary. It’s no surprise Kanye West had a mental breakdown. If I lived in Hollywood I would probably do the same.

The now-canceled “Rosie O’Donnell Show” on NBC allowed Rosie to tell the world just how biased, and hateful she was as a person. It’s no surprise that Rosie’s show was canceled. The saying goes that if you live in Hollywood you can’t be a Conservative or a Gun owner. I think Tom Selleck found that out the hard way. Selleck appeared on the show once to talk about his new movie that was about to hit the big screen. Instead of talking about the show, Rosie decided to corner, and interrogate Mr. Selleck for appearing in an NRA commercial.

Via Capitalist Magazine:

In left-leaning Hollywood, one could more safely come out of the closet and admit to child molestation than a support of the Second Amendment. For Selleck’s colossal sin of being in Hollywood and conservative, the “Queen of Nice” jumped on Selleck the way Jeffrey Dahmer attacks a Chateaubriand.

O’Donnell: “But you can’t say that guns don’t bear responsibility. … Why would the NRA be against assault rifles? This is a gun that can shoot five bullets in a second. This is the gun that those boys brought into the school. Why the NRA doesn’t say as a matter of compromise: ‘We agree. Assault weapons are not good.’”

Selleck: “I can’t speak for the NRA –”

O’Donnell: “But you’re their spokesperson, Tom. You have to be responsible for what they say.”

Selleck: “I’m not a spokesperson –”

O’Donnell: “… But you can’t say that ‘I will not take responsibility for anything the NRA represents’ if you’re saying that you’re gonna do an ad for the NRA.”

Selleck: “… You’re carefully skirting the issue. It’s an act of moral vanity, Rosie, to assume that someone who disagrees with your political agenda to solve our problems cares any less or is any less –”

O’Donnell: “I never said you cared less. Tom, I don’t think you care less. Nor do I think the men in the NRA cared less. … I simply said, why can there not be a compromise?”

Selleck: “There is a compromise. There’s a compromise in enforcing laws, there’s a compromise in not allowing kids with guns in schools. The problem is, and what you don’t seem to realize. … Look, we all hang out with people we agree with, and you have a very one-sided view of the fact, but what you don’t understand –”

O’Donnell: “As does the NRA, and the people you hang out within the NRA have a one-sided view, as well.”

Had O’Donnell allowed him to speak, Selleck might have mentioned that people use guns perhaps as often as 1 million times per year for defensive purposes, undoubtedly preventing large numbers of murders.

Selleck might have said that Scotland and Ireland, countries with tough gun laws, have higher murder rates than the United States. Or that Switzerland, with a per-capita gun ownership higher than ours, has a lower murder rate.

Or that studies show that a woman who resists her attacker with a gun stands a better chance of avoiding injury or death. Or that convicted felons, when polled, say they are less likely to attack an armed person or enter a house where a gun is present. Or that Rosie O’Donnell does commercials for K-Mart, where one can purchase a rifle.

A piece of work, emotional liberals. – Capitalist Magazine

The NRA has been attacked for years for standing up to the Federal Government and making sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. There is no greater cause by the left than the one to take our Gun Rights away. The progressives know that as long as we keep in bare arms they can not control our lives like they want. Over the last four decades they have slowly started to disarm us, but with the election of Donald J. Trump, their efforts have failed. President Trump spoke at the National NRA Convention in Dallas, Texas this week. It’s nice to see someone in high office standing up for the rights given to us by God.

Melania Just Named Possible ‘Greatest First Lady Ever’ After She Makes Legendary Announcement

Published

* By

This is unbelievable. It’s like the world might be coming to an end! No… Not really!

In an op-ed piece titled “Melania Trump, Could Be Our Greatest First Lady,” which was written by a known Trump-hater like the majority of so-called journalists from the New York Time is bound to raise eyebrows.

Here is the article via The New York Times:

“Maybe someday, when the history of Donald Trump’s presidency is written, we’ll pinpoint the start of this week as his pivot into complete derangement and come up with a pithy name for it. Maybe we’ll call it Melania Monday.

Trending: Libs Furious At What Trump Dared To Say Instead Of Paying Tribute To Dying John McCain

We’ll note that on Aug. 20, 2018, the first lady, again with a pussy bow, publicly chided cyberbullies at the same time that her husband ranted and raged on Twitter, likening Robert Mueller to Joseph McCarthy and demonstrating a grasp of history commensurate with his grip on civility.

We’ll admire the wickedness of her announcement, just hours later, that she’d be making a solo trip — her farthest and flashiest yet as an official ambassador — to Africa, whose nations the president can’t pronounce, let alone respect. She didn’t choose that destination randomly, throwing a dart at a map. She chose it defiantly, throwing shade at her husband.

Surely Melania Trump is getting under his skin. Certainly she’s making the effort. If she would just turn these fitful baby steps into full-length strides, she might finally undo him and set us free. Melania the Savior. A pussy-bow coup. Stranger things have happened. Less exhilarating fantasies have been born.

And is it really so far-fetched? To judge by his tweets, tantrums and apparent belief that Rudy Giuliani is an appropriate advocate, Donald Trump teeters at the precipice of incoherence and self-destruction, needing only a shove. Who best to administer it but a spouse with her own, separate bedroom in the White House and her own, separate hotel suite when they travel?

She inches ever closer to open contempt for him. She finds increasingly clever ways to show it. And it’s a perfect wedding of patriotism and payback for all the humiliations that he has heaped on her.

This first-lady thing clearly flummoxed her at first. It’s a ludicrous job. You’re supposed to make a difference without making waves, find a passion while veiling your convictions and smile blithely through a ceaseless forensic examination of your every accessory.

It’s infantilizing. It’s objectifying. If a presidential administration were a sedan, the first lady would be its hood ornament. If it were a manse, she’d be the topiary bracketing the front stoop.

Usually Melania Trump was absent topiary. America had a denuded front stoop. And we made hasty assumptions. When she initially announced her anti-cyberbullying campaign in a speech in November 2016, we thought that she was out to lunch. Did she not see the contradiction?

For the president’s first State of the Union address, she wore a white pantsuit that served as a sartorial reminder of suffragists and of Hillary Clinton. This month, after he questioned LeBron James’s intelligence in a tweet, her spokeswoman released a statement that asserted the first lady’s admiration for James’s work with at-risk children in his hometown, Akron, Ohio. Melania was possibly interested in visiting the school there that James had helped to start, the statement said.

And my colleagues Katie Rogers and Maggie Haberman recently reported that during a trip overseas last month, the president had a fit because the first lady’s television on Air Force One was tuned to CNN, not his beloved Fox News. Was CNN an accident or a provocation? Well, in a public response to the incident, Melania’s spokeswoman made clear that the first lady watches “any channel she wants.”

I’m not sure what to make of that “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” jacket that she wore on her way to a detention center for migrant children in Texas. It’s the “rosebud” of our time. But what if the message was that she didn’t mind if we interpreted her behavior as a rebuke of her husband’s?

Marriage as psyops — it’s not virgin territory, but the stage and stakes here are epic. On Monday, as The Washington Post’s James Hohmann noted, she used the phrase “global society” in both her spoken remarks about cyberbullying and her written remarks about the trip to Africa, which she praised for its “rich culture.” Her husband, of course, treats “globalists” and “globalism” as dirty words, and some of his “shithole countries” are on that richly cultured continent. She’ll be going there without him.

Other first ladies beautified highways, promoted reading, planted squash. This one could abbreviate a nightmare. She’s in a situation that her predecessors weren’t, on the arm of an overlord who needs undermining, and it’s her invitation to greatness, or at least her prompt for an itinerary tailored to taunt.

I urge that visit to James’s school. Bring Don Lemon along. I suggest lunch dates with Maxine Waters, Aperol spritzes with Angela Merkel and pajama parties with Nancy Pelosi. And pussy bows and pantsuits for days on end. They’re the threads of a revolution.”

Don’t be fooled, if you took the time the time to stomach reading the whole article above you will see it’s not an actual praise of anything. It’s just one more mere try to take down our President. The man the majority of us voted for in the 2016 election. But what perhaps makes this article special is that he comes at him by forwarding a conspiracy theory which actually claims First Lady Melania Trump is trying to get under her husband’s skin. That she has contempt for him and if only she would turn it up a notch “she might finally undo him and set us free.”

Free us from what? A world without ISIS? Peace in the Korean Peninsula? An unemployment rate not seen in decades? An economy which the CEO of Target calls “the best I’ve seen in my career?” A GDP which former President Barack Hussein Obama said was unattainable in today’s world? A consumer confidence not seen since the 90’s? Is this the evil they want to rid us from?

I think we can all rest assured that if Hillary Clinton didn’t have contempt for Bill, and Jackie Kennedy didn’t have contempt for John, President Trump has nothing to worry about since he has done nothing compared to what those two characters put their wives through.

The author of this piece, Frank Bruni has been with The Times since 1995 and has actually held a variety of jobs in the field of journalism, which in today’s world seems to have open contempt for people like you and I. He was White House reporter, Rome bureau chief, and chief restaurant critic before becoming a columnist in 2011 for the NYT. Maybe he should just stick to being a restaurant critic, which I am sure he didn’t excel at either outside of his own elitist circles.
