Taylor Swift has made headlines over the past week for her recent comments on social media. The usually quiet woman when it comes to politics has now taken a political stance. In fact, she has now endorsed someone for Congress. But it is not a Republican.
The Tennessee native has homes all across the United States but she only spoke about her home state representative. Something that has gotten a lot of support and negative media attention. Information Liberation reported,
“A search of the Tennessee Secretary of State’s official voter registration database suggests that Taylor Swift may not be registered to vote in the state of Tennessee. Swift was praised by the media earlier this week for harshly attacking Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn and endorsing her opponent Democrat Phil Bredesen. She told her supporters “we have to vote” even if we don’t 100% agree with our preferred candidates on every issue.
Swift reportedly owns two homes in Nashville, Tennessee, both of which are in Davidson County. She also has several other residences in New York, Beverly Hills and Rhode Island. If you put the name Taylor Swift with the county of residence as Davidson and year of birth as 1989 (Taylor Alison Swift was born on December 13, 1989), the state government’s website says: “No record was found. Please verify the information below and search again. If your information cannot be found, please contact your local county election commission to verify the accuracy of the information on file.”
Similarly, no record was found when the county was switched to the other largest counties in Tennessee of Shelby, Knox, Hamilton, Rutherford, Williamson, Montgomery, Sumner, Sullivan, Wilson, Blount, Washington or Bradley.
Replacing “Taylor” with the misspelled “Tayler” also came up empty. It’s not clear what state Swift claims as her residence, but she specifically said on October 8th on Instagram, “I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives.”
The website claims that their voter registration data is “current as of October 10th, 2018.” The last day to register to vote in Tennessee was October 9th. If Swift is intending to vote as she claimed, she may want to contact her local county election commission.”
Fox News reported,
“On Sunday, Swift urged her 112 million Instagram followers to register to vote and cast their ballot for Blackburn’s opponent, former governor Phil Bredesen. After her post, voter registration in Tennessee went up to 65,000 registrations in a 24-hour period. However, a new New York Times poll on Friday shows Blackburn is ahead of Bredesen by 14 points.
Swift wrote to her followers, “As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me.” Swift said the congresswoman “voted against equal pay for women.
She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry.”
“These are not MY Tennessee values,” the “Fearless” singer said online. Swift wrote she will be voting for Bredesen for the Senate, and also for Rep. Jim Cooper, a Democrat who’s running for re-election. Blackburn told Fox Business’ Connell McShane on Wednesday she believed her constituents would not be swayed by the celebrity.
“Tennesseans are more interested in the fact that Marsha Blackburn is endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, by the Fraternal Order of Police, by the Police Benevolent Association and by the National Rifle Association, where I have an ‘A’ rating and their endorsement,” Blackburn said.
In 2016, Blackburn won her House re-election race, defeating Democrat Tharon Chandler. She represented Tennessee’s 7th congressional district. Blackburn received more than 72 percent of the vote, The New York Times reported. Blackburn is running to replace Republican Sen. Bob Corker’s seat. Corker announced last year that he will be retiring from the Senate. Bredesen is running against Blackburn.
Following Swift’s endorsements, President Trump told reporters on Monday that he likes her music “about 25 percent less.” “I’m sure Taylor Swift has nothing or doesn’t know anything about her,” Trump said of the 28-year-old singer. “Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25 percent less now, OK?””
Swift is an entertainer and musician, known as a best-selling artist with over 40 million albums sold worldwide with 27.8 million in the U.S. She has received a plethora of recognition from the Nashville Songwriters Association, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and she has received over 10 Grammy’s, 1 Emmy, and 23 Billboard Music Awards.
She has also been recognized with 6 Guinness World Records and 12 County Music Association Awards. She has appeared twice in Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, as well as on Forbes’s list of top-earning women in music for several years from 2011 to 2015. As her fame and fortune have grown, so has her propensity to comment on political issues.
Despite her argument that she tends to stay out of political issues she has routinely commented and engaged in the political arena. During the 2008 presidential campaign, she supported a then-presidential candidate and nominee Barack Obama. She participated and helped to promote the Every Woman Counts Campaign as well.
She has vocally referred to herself as a feminist and has had close ties with the Kennedy Family. In the past, she has spoken about her admiration and respect for Ethel Kennedy. After the murder of Larry King, she became an outspoken LGBT advocate and worked on an anti-bullying campaign with her music.

Behar Claims Half Of Trump’s Employees Are Being Indicted – Realizes BIG Mistake Too Late!
The View is one of those shows well worth not watching. Joy Behar just proclaimed that there is no honor in working for the Trump White House. She claims half of the employees are being indicted. That is just blatantly untrue. I’m sure the phone was ringing off the hook after Behar made that statement.
Behar viciously said this in regards to the rumor that First Lady Melania Trump is ‘cleaning house’ because of certain issues there. There is no link between working at this White House and being indicted. The example she used of Sean Spicer is flawed since he was never indicted. Facts don’t matter to Joy Behar… she’s in it for the barbed quips and laughs. The Daily Caller has more on the sheer vitriol and jealousy that Behar spouts every time she speaks of Melania:
Joy Behar claimed on Wednesday’s “The View” that there was no honor in working in the Trump White House.
“Half of them are being indicted for God’s sakes!” she exclaimed. “If they’re not quitting or getting fired, they’re going to jail. Some honor.”
The segment began with a conversation about the public statement made by the first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham condemning deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel. “It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” the statement read.
Calling the move “unusual,” Whoopi Goldberg asked whether Melania Trump was overstepping her bounds.
“I like when she says she ‘no longer deserves the honor,’” Behar cut in. “Tell that to Michael Cohen, Sean Spicer. See how honored they were to work in this White House. Half of them are being indicted for God’s sakes. If they’re not quitting or getting fired, they’re going to jail. Some honor.”
Behar appeared to be implying that there was a direct link between working in the Trump White House and being indicted — but the examples she chose didn’t exactly bear that out.
Sean Spicer, who previously worked as the White House press secretary, has not been indicted for anything. And Michael Cohen, former attorney to President Donald Trump, was indicted and reached a plea deal but never held a White House position.
In fact, none of the others indicted in connection with the Mueller probe ever held official White House positions. The closest it gets is Michael Flynn, former national security advisor, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI after resigning from his position.
Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain weighed in on the situation, as well. Huntsman argued that perhaps a public statement, however unconventional for a first lady, might have been the only way she thought she would be heard. McCain suggested that perhaps Ricardel had said things Melania did not want to hear.
“You’ve got to surround yourself with people who aren’t going to be yes men,” she explained.
Behar wrapped up the conversation by saying that Melania should fire whoever let her head for the border wearing a jacket that read “I really don’t care do U?” — and when her cohosts informed her that the first lady was the one who made the decision, she added, “she ought to fire herself.”
HUGE Pop Star’s Husband Sends Warning To Wildfire Looters: You WILL Be Shot On Site!
There’s at least one huge pop star that probably won’t have to worry about looters during the California wildfires. Pop superstar Pink and her husband, Carey Hart, are letting looters know that if they even think about trying to steal from them there will be a huge and probably lethal price to pay.
The couple lives in Malibu and they are watching the fires very closely. A lot of people there have had their homes burn to the ground and people have died in these fires. Most have evacuated but Corey, who supports the 2nd Amendment, has a message for anyone who tries to loot near them. The Daily Caller has more on the state of affairs in Malibu:
Pop superstar Pink and her husband, Carey Hart, have a very special message for potential wildfire looters.
The couple, who lives outside Los Angeles in the Malibu area, have been watching the California wildfires ravage their community for two weeks now.

The area has also been struggling with looters, since most homeowners have evacuated, and their security systems are down due to widespread power outages. Some high-profile properties, like “The Bachelor” mansion, hired round-the-clock, armed security.
But Pink’s husband, a proud gun owner, took matters into his own hands and issued a simple warning to all the potential looters out there.
“It’s unfortunate that some people take advantage of others in a crisis,” he wrote. “While the Malibu fires have been burning, some locals have been fighting off and defending their property against the fires. There have been sightings of looters breaking into homes. Well, if you are a looter, think twice if you are heading back into Malibu.”
