VIDEO: Watch ‘Megadeth’ Frontman Mock Obama’s ‘F$#@ing Mom Jeans’ Onstage

 

 

 

 

” Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine was caught on video by a fan at their April 19 concert in Tucson, Arizona, mocking President Obama’s penchant for wearing “mom jeans.” And he used some rather colorful language in doing so…

“Imagine if I was your president… Oh boy! I’ll tell you what – there would be no f**king mom jeans on this guy!” “

Map Reveals What Our Planet Would Look Like If Sea Levels Rose By 260ft

 

 

 

CLIMATE2

 

 

 

” Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100.

  But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

  To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.

  He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing five million cubic miles of water into the world’s oceans.

  Whilst at first glance it doesn’t seem much different to a map of the world today, a closer looks shows huge unshaded areas swamped by water with today’s existing coastlines depicted in dotted lines.”

Cowboy Poet Waddie Mitchell Pens ‘Call to All’ In Nevada Ranch Standoff

 

Waddie Mitchell

 

 

” Famed cowboy poet and Nevada rancher Waddie Mitchell , who spoke with Newsmax TV last week about the clash between Bundy and the BLM, has made the standoff the subject of his latest poem. He shared the piece, “A Call to All,” with Newsmax:



  This poem is not about a cowman who refused to give up rights
Or how the Feds have treated him and started all these fights
And it’s not about what side I’m on for a tortoise or some fees
This is all about our government out doing as it please

A Call To All

Americans, listen up and fear
About what’s happening out here
How our bureaucracies do anything to win
They stomp all over rights
Starting State and local fights
Stealing land and property from citizens

How the bureau of mis-management
Doesn’t even have to get consent
To spend six million to put one lone rancher down
Cuz, a tortoise might get stepped on
And some fees they disagree on ,,
Make it worth Gestapo force with guns and hounds?

The roots from which this stems
Come from their rules, all wrote by them
And they enforce their rules, but if you disagree
Guess who judges the whole mess?
You don’t even have to guess
The monster’s growing folks, it’s hungry and wants feed

Shall we all just sit and watch
While they carve another notch
From the rights that they have whittled on for years
One more gouge might cut plumb through
Allowing government to rule
And that would be the summit of our fears

Do you want a wolf Bo Peep
That will kill and eat your sheep
Or a guard dog to protect the sheep you own?
The offensive they’ve unfurled
Is reminiscent of third world
Who have ever thought it’d happen here at home?

And the puppet bureaucrats
Who are supposed to have our backs
The gorilla tactics they employ, folks, just ain’t right
They are poking hornet nests
Causing anger and unrest
They’ve no idea the deep resolve of folks they’ll fight

And sheriff, what the Hell’s with you ?
Do what you were sworn to do
Your siding with the Feds on this seems odd
Which politician got to you?
You protect and serve just who?
We need sheriffs not afraid to do their job

For, if they get away with this
Our freedom’s thrown to the abyss
And we will all feel Big Bad Brother’s iron hand
We best get out of our chairs
Prove to them that we do care
For the rights and freedoms that have built this land

Civil disobedience
Makes sense, when there’s no other sense ‘
It’s a shame but sometimes people must stand strong
It worked for Civil rights and Vietnam
And for the rights that women won
And,in each case, it proved the government was wrong

And how did the Feds respond?
Well, they went so far beyond
And murdered citizens for how they think and feel
How many wars, of late, have we been in
Because they lied and fed their spin?
And we lost soldiers, reputation and billions in the deal

You good folks who do not live out here
It’s best you listen close and fear
The systems rigged and now they’re wanting more
They’ve shown willingness to kill
For things against the peoples will
As Americans are we to take much more?

And this ruling with force and fear
Seems to escalate each year
Friends,they are nothing more than ‘enemies of state’
Why would they come with thugs and snipers
Taze and threaten folks like vipers
If what they’re doing is at all legitimate?

And for the mess that we have got
Follow the trail way up the top
They need arrested where they haven’t spread their claws
We go get individual crooks
That are juggling the books
Why does a government job protect them from the law

And accomplices should do time
For participating in the crime
Just as bank robbers, armed and acting tough
I can’t conceive what kind of minds
Would condone these kinds of crimes
Against neighbors just saying, “that’s enough”

And the puppet bureaucrats
Alibi- ing shameful acts
Like the guards did from the concentration camps
Claim “We just do what we are told”
That willingness make tyrants bold
All agencies and powers need revamped

It’s sad but true, it’s come to this
Our government has gone amiss
Just when last did the Senate do its job?
Have they earned thIs kind of clout
Or even your benefit of doubt?
We’d be better off if we dealt with the mob

Remember, Waco, Ruby Ridge, Kent State ?
Will you allow that be our fate?
While we stand up for the rights of me and you
The facts are there, folks, you discern
Stand and show that you ‘re concerned
For the nightmare of Big Brother’s coming true!

And don’t believe there’s “Public Ground”
That just has a pleasant sound
Folks it’s “federal” when they when they want to lock the gate
And our taxes pay for all their crimes
As they grow bolder all the time
Don’t let a police state with a ruler be our fate?”

Gosnell Abortion Film Too Much For Kickstarter’s ‘Diverse’ Censors

 

 

 

gosnell-movie-poster-censoredv2

 

 

 

” I was really, really happy when Kickstarter came on the scene. The crowd-funding Web site offered the opportunity for struggling artists and filmmakers to bypass corporate, union or not-for-profit funders and their agendas and interests.

  Kickstarter was set up to allow us to put up a pitch — go directly to the public; if people liked it, they could fund it with small donations.

  And it worked like a dream. For my last film, the pro-fracking documentary “FrackNation,” 3,305 people gave $212,000 to make it happen.

  But now it seems that Kickstarter is turning into a bad dream for those who want to wander from the orthodox.

  Now, Kickstarter has always been dominated by projects with liberal, environmental and even ultra-left-wing leanings. That’s no surprise — the arts are dominated by people with such views.

  But Kickstarter promised to be different. Its founder and CEO, Yancey Strickler, was quite clear on this, for example telling viewers of CBS’ “This Morning” that the site is a center for “very diverse ideas.”

  So when I had the idea of making a film about the life and crimes of Kermit Gosnell, the now-notorious Philadelphia abortion doctor, my first idea was to go to Kickstarter — since there was no point going to Hollywood or any establishment media outlet.

  Gosnell was a Philadelphia abortionist who for decades took babies who’d already been born and stabbed them in the neck and cut their spinal cords. He probably killed thousands of infants during his 40-year killing spree.

  In the words of ABC correspondent Terry Moran, Kermit Gosnell was “America’s most successful serial killer.” “

Early Life And Career

” Moore started performing at a young age, having picked up a battered acoustic guitar at the age of eight. He got his first quality guitar at the age of 14, learning to play the right-handed instrument in the standard way despite being left-handed. He moved to Dublin in 1968 at the age of 16. His early musical influences were artists such as Albert KingElvis PresleyThe Shadows and The Beatles. Later, having seen Jimi Hendrix and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers in his home town of Belfast, his own style was developing into a blues-rock sound that would be the dominant form of his career in music.

Moore’s greatest influence in the early days was guitarist Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac who was a mentor to Moore when performing in Dublin. Green’s continued influence on Moore was later repaid as a tribute to Green on his 1995 album Blues for Greeny, an album consisting entirely of Green compositions. On this tribute album, Moore played Green’s 1959 Les Paul Standard guitar which Green had lent to Moore after leaving Fleetwood Mac. Moore ultimately purchased the guitar, at Green’s request, so that “it would have a good home”.

While less popular in the US, Moore’s work “brought substantial acclaim and commercial success in most other parts of the world – especially in Europe”. Throughout his career, Moore was recognised as an influence by many notable guitarists including Vivian Campbell, Patrick Rondat, John NorumPaul Gilbert, Gus GSlashOrianthiJoe BonamassaAdrian SmithDoug AldrichZakk Wylde, Randy RhoadsJohn Sykes and Kirk Hammett.

He collaborated with a broad range of artists including Phil LynottGeorge Harrison,Trilok GurtuDr. Strangely StrangeColosseum IITravelling WilburysAlbert Collins,Jimmy NailMo FosterGinger BakerJack BruceJim CapaldiB.B. KingBob Dylan,Vicki BrownCozy PowellRod Argentthe Beach BoysOzzy OsbournePaul RodgersKeith EmersonRoger DaltreyAlbert King and together with Colosseum II with Andrew Lloyd Webber on the composer’sVariations album in 1978. He experimented with many musical genres, including rock, jazzbluescountryelectric blueshard rock and heavy metal.[9]

In 1968, aged 16, Moore moved to Dublin to join the group Skid Row with Noel Bridgeman and Brendan “Brush” Shiels. It was with this group that he earned a reputation in the music industry, and his association with Phil Lynott began.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Allmusic:

” Skid Row would go on to issue several singles and albums (including 1970′s Skid and 1971′s 34 Hours), and although the group mounted a few tours of Europe and the U.S., it failed to obtain breakthrough commercial success, leading to Moore‘s exit from the group in 1972.Moore then formed his own outfit, the Gary Moore Band (along with members drummer Pearse Kelly and bassist John Curtis), for which the guitarist also served as vocalist. But after the trio’s debut album, 1973′s Grinding Stone, sunk without a trace, Moore hooked up once more with ex-bandmate Lynott in Thin LizzyMoore‘s initial tenure in Lizzy proved to be short-lived, however, as his fiery playing was featured on only a handful of tracks. Moore then set his sights on studio work (appearing on Eddie Howell‘s 1975 release, Gramaphone Record), before joining up with a prog rock/fusion outfit, Colosseum II.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” But once more, Moore‘s tenure in his latest outfit was fleeting; he appeared on only three recordings (1976′s Strange New Flesh, plus a pair in 1977, Electric Savage and War Dance), as Moore accepted an invitation by his old buddy Lynott to fill in for a Thin Lizzy U.S. tour, playing arenas opening for Queen.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Gary Moore

” Moore proved to be quite busy in 1978, as the guitarist appeared on three other artists’ recordings — Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Variations, Rod Argent’s Moving Home, and Gary Boyle’s Electric Glide. The same year, Moore issued his second solo release (almost five years after his solo debut), Back on the Streets, which spawned a surprise Top Ten U.K. hit in May of 1979, the bluesy ballad “Parisienne Walkways,” and featured vocal contributions by Lynott. Moore joined forces with his Lizzy mates once more in 1979, appearing on arguably the finest studio album of their career, Black Rose, which proved to be a huge hit in the U.K. (for a fine example of Moore’s exceptional guitar skills, check out the album’s epic title track). But predictably, Moore ultimately exited the group once more (this time right in the middle of a U.S. tour), as a rift had developed between Moore and Lynott. Undeterred, Moore lent some guitar work to drummer Cozy Powell’s solo release, Over the Top, in addition to forming a new outfit, G Force, which would only remain together for a lone self-titled release in 1980.”

Irish Rockers

” In the 1980s Gary established his reputation as one of the top guitarists on the heavy metal scene with a series of rock albums that showcased his skill. Kirk Hammett of Metallica, who cites Gary as one of his top 5 influences, sums up Gary’s style of playing very well: “Gary’s technique was very modern, but his guitar style was very blues-based. His phrasing was very, very blues-based. He played long, sustained notes coupled with really super fast-picked notes and he had a great legato style“.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In 1990, Moore returned to his blues roots with ‘Still Got the Blues’, with contributions from Albert King, Albert Collins and George Harrison. The album was well received by fans and was his biggest seller. He stayed with the blues format until 1997, when he decided to experiment with modern dance beats on Dark Days in Paradise; this left many fans, as well as the music press, confused. With Back to the Blues, Moore return to his tried and tested blues format in 2001. In 2002 he got back to more of a hard rocking style with the album Scars. He also returned to playing some of his metal-period material in the 2003 Monsters of Rock Tour. Then he continued on with the blues rock style on Power of the Blues (2004), Old New Ballads Blues (2006), Close As You Get (2007) and Bad For You Baby (2008).”

” The, Back To The Blues’ (2001) album saw him revisit The Blues with renewed vigour and determination, after the more experimental ‘Dark Days In Paradise’ (1997) and ‘A Different Beat’ (1999) albums. A ten-track collection that mixed excellent Moore originals, with gritty and intense covers of standards. But, in the tradition of keeping his fans and critics guessing, 2002 saw Gary Moore crashing back onto the music scene with what had to be his heaviest collection of songs since the late 1980′s, once again forcing people to reassess any opinions and preconceptions they might have had of him.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” That time round though, Moore had decided to share the limelight, joining forces with ex-Skunk Anansie bassist Cass Lewis and Primal Scream drummer Darrin Mooney to form ‘Scars’, a true power trio in every respect. The ‘Scars’ album was completed in early 2002 and that line-up, then went on to record the ‘Live at the Monsters of Rock’ (2003) live CD and DVD, which featured the band’s set as performed on two separate nights on the UK Tour in May 2003. That live set encompassed a diverse range of material, from across Gary’s playing career.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” 2004 saw possibly the rawest album yet, with ‘Power of the Blues’. The 10-track set, recorded mostly live in the studio, ranged from the hard rock/blues of the title track, via the upbeat swing of “Can’t find my baby”, to the haunting “Torn Inside”.

 

 

 

” Taking time out in August 2005, for a brief reunion with former Thin Lizzy band members, for a one off concert in Dublin, to mark the occasion of Phil Lynott’s birth. The evening was filmed for the 2006 DVD release, ‘Gary Moore and Friends, One Night in Dublin, A Tribute to Phil Lynott’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” With his 2007 studio album ‘Close As You Get’, Gary continued in a direction not too dissimilar from ‘Old, New, Ballads, Blues’, released in 2006. Mixing original tunes with some interesting Blues covers that Gary had rediscovered, whilst researching for his award winning radio series, “Blues Power”, on Planet Rock (UK based digital/internet “radio” station). September 2008 saw the release of what would turn out to be Gary’s last studio album, “Bad for you Baby”. Again, a powerful collection of tracks, of original material and selected blues covers. After being on the road for most of 2008 and into 2010 with the “Blues” line up of the touring band. Gary returned from a tour of Russia and the Far East, and decided to reunite with his old sparring partner from the rock line up’s of the 1980’s, Neil Carter. The plan was to put together a “Rock” line up and dust off a selection of tracks from the mid to late 1980’s.”

 

 

 

“Adding Jon Noyce, (ex Jethro Tull/Sessions) on bass, some one who was also part of the, “One Night in Dublin” Tribute DVD in 2005, and Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream/Sessions) on drums, who was no stranger to the touring and recording line during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. This line up, hit the road in May of 2010, performing a live set based around a selection of tracks from the “Rock Years” of the 1980′s. This proved to be a real treat for fans, old & new, as many would have not heard Gary play these songs live, either for a very long time, or in many cases, at all. In addition to the older tunes, a number of new “Celtic Rock” style tracks were included in the show, which went down very well with the live audiences. Tracks, which Gary was planning to record and embellish, on his next studio project. A project that was ready to start when Gary returned from a short holiday break.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Unfortunately, that was not to be, as Gary passed away in his sleep in the early hours of February 6th, 2011, in Estepona, Spain. After being such a “force of nature” in the guitar-playing firmament, for many years, as part of a professional career that began when he was only 16. He leaves behind a huge hole for many, not just his close family and friends, but guitar fans around the world.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Of all the many tributes paid since Gary’s passing, maybe this one, from Gary’s friend and musical collaborator, Don Airey, might sum up the best of most people’s thoughts of Gary: “At the 1984 Donington Festival during the long solo in “Empty Rooms” the previously restive crowd went so quiet, you could hear a pin drop – everyone back and behind stage stopped whatever they were doing and just stood to listen open-mouthed. His artistry touched thousands of people over the years, not least those of us lucky enough to have shared a stage or a recording studio with him. Sleep tight old mate, you’ll be sorely missed.” “
