via BREITBART: Singer Beyoncé Knowles brought black liberation politics to the Super Bowl halftime show Sunday in a performance that appeared to pay tribute to the Black Panthers.
Backed by a cadre of backup dancers sporting Black Panther berets, Beyoncé performed her new single “Formation” in homage to the Black Lives Matter movement.
At one point during the performance, the dancers formed an X seemingly in tribute to black Muslim activist Malcolm X and raised their fists in the “black power” salute.
The choreography wasn’t restricted to the football field; the halftime show was part of a marketing plan that put out messaging across multiple platforms, from social media to mainstream media.
A picture posted to Twitter also showed several of the performance’s backup dancers giving the black power salute while holding a sign reading, “Justice for Mario Woods.” Woods was shot by police after refusing to drop a knife in 2015.
It’s the latest move by Knowles and husband Jay-Z to associate themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement. Just last week, Jay-Z announced he was giving $1.5 million from his struggling streaming music service Tidal to the Black Lives Matter movement and other groups.
On Saturday, Knowles suddenly dropped the music video for her new song “Formation.”
As Breitbart News reported, the video contains sequences involving white police officers harassing young black people, including a shot of graffiti that reads “stop shooting us.” The video also shows Beyoncé lying on a flooded New Orleans police car, in a reference to the Katrina disaster that many blame on George W. Bush.
An Instagram photo posted by Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles showed the black leather-clad dancers raising clenched fist in a Black Power salute — a powerful mix of iconic imagery guaranteed to grab eyeballs and make headlines.
Although Beyoncé was trying to capture headlines by using politically incendiary imagery, the songs lyrics are mostly about black identity, a theme that goes back to songs like James Brown’s “Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud.” Lyrics from the Beyoncé song include:
My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana
You mix that Negro with that Creole, make a Texas Bama
I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros
I like my Negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils.
However, in 2016, black people being unashamed of being black is hardly newsworthy. Beyoncé grew up in comfortable middle-class surroundings, in a world created by unapologetically black artist and athletes like James Brown, Richard Pryor, and Muhammad Ali.
The irony, of course, is that Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z owe their success to the capitalist system the leftist Black Lives Matter movement is intent on destroying. Jay-Z’s story of going from rags to riches is well-known, as he went from being a drug dealer in the projects of New York to becoming an entertainment star and entrepreneur. Beyoncé is the child of a small business owner and a sales manager for Xerox. Both biographies fly in the face of the Black Lives Matter narrative that black people somehow need to be “liberated” from the free market.
As Breitbart News has exhaustively shown, the Black Lives Matter movement is merely the latest incarnation of the radical left’s activist community. The revolutionary communist anti-police group pays homage to convicted terrorist Assata Shakur at every event and cites the communist Black Panthers as a key influence.
However, both Jay-Z and Beyoncé demonstrated a keen understanding of how to profit from the leftist-created culture wars in the United States.
Beyoncé Knowles announced her new “Formation” stadium tour immediately after the performance at the Super Bowl. Presale tickets for the European and American tour go on sale tomorrow.

Trump Just Pissed Everyone Off With The AWESOME New Picture That Went Up In White House!!
BOOM!!! THATS AWESOME!!
The White House is filled with historical pieces and artifacts that represent our nation’s history, but perhaps none are so controversial as what President Donald Trump just donned the walls of the West Wing with today. Among the painted pieces of notable figures in our nation’s history, is a new framed piece of work that comes with a clear message that cannot be ignored. Now, idiots everywhere are infuriated about what our leader had the guts to put up that we’re pretty sure his supporters are going to love.
The First Family is getting comfortable in their new home, just as the Obamas did in their disrespectful way that nobody seemed to have a problem with. When Trump moved in and began putting his personal touch on the People’s House, all hell broke loose with accusations of tactless taste that his predecessor never got when hosting rappers and their wives. Whether people agree or disagree with what our President just put on the walls, he had the right to celebrate his victory in the way he chose to decorate.
The White House isn’t just a place where the president lives, it’s a monument that represents milestones in leadership throughout our nation’s history. Perhaps not a single leader has been so controversial as our current Commander-in-Chief who overcame all odds to call this place home. Because of that, he has every right to document this incredible feat with a framed piece that shows exactly how that happened.
The media tried to portray that Trump’s opposition, Hillary Clinton, had a huge lead in the presidential race. However, one picture proved that wrong, which has now become the West Wing’s latest and perhaps most extraordinary piece of artwork.
Trump didn’t become president by a mere margin — he won by a landslide of votes where it counted most. The Electoral College is the deciding vote and the now infamous image of which way each area of every state went has become its own modern art on display in the White House, and for good reason.

Trey Yingst was among the first to spot this new display and seemingly without realizing the can of controversy he was opening with this Tweeted picture of it, he simply stated, ” Spotted: a map to be hung somewhere in the West Wing.” The image of the Electoral College Map from the election Trump swept in 2016 accompanied his sentiment and infuriated idiots around the country who couldn’t fathom why Trump would display such a thing.
It’s unknown at what point these Democratic degenerates forgot who they were talking about — thinking that somehow it was out of character for Trump to gloat. When it’s his right to do so by having earned it through honest means and against all odds, he should display that victory since it sends a message about what America is all about. Trump was truthful in his lead and the media was not, however, this is photo proof of that bias and that the American dream can be accomplished despite any adversary against you, and needs to be displayed for that reason..

Perhaps the most humorous part of the outrage over this imagery in the West Wing is that the same people who publicly express how tasteless and gross it is, in their opinion, were in support of a wife using the desk her husband received disgusting sexual favors at during his time in office. I think what it comes down to is that the truth hurts and no matter how much some people in America hate Trump, they can’t deny that he legitimately painted the country red in approval of him.
It’s often said that “a picture says a thousand words” but this one speaks volumes beyond that. Trump beat supposed frontrunner Hillary Clinton by far more than a thousand Electoral College votes. This wasn’t just a victory for him, but for the American people who were heard and deserve to have the piece of our country’s history commemorated on the wall of the White House. Every little girl and boy in America with a dream to make a difference and become president one day can do that, just like Trump did as a non-career politician. That’s significant and part of what makes America great.
BREAKING News About The Loving Elderly Actress Betty White – So Sad!
KEEP HER IN YOUR PRAYERS!
Betty White seems to have outlasted the test of time in Hollywood and at 95-years-old is still a viable and beloved star in Tinsel Town. It seems that her humor is the real secret to a happy and successful life, as it served her well. She’s never been the most vocal about politics as she’s been wise enough to keep her presidential preferences to herself throughout the years, as a person in her public position. White has always cut to the chase, making her loved and respected among many. Now, we have some breaking news about this bright star, who at the ripe age of 95 surprised us all.
Perhaps Betty White’s secret to success that other stars should learn from was to be opinionated and witty without being divisive. She certainly mastered that skill throughout her career but recently, something really disturbing has changed. We saw this in full effect when she was recently face-to-face with news anchor Katie Couric who pulled her typical trick of trying to get the start to trash President Trump. Couric quickly realized she wasn’t talking to the typical famous millennial idiot when White came back with an unexpected response to her bait, shocking viewers who thought they knew her. This feisty elderly actress answered with a really sad response to Couric’s nasty, divisive questioning to set her up. What’s even sadder, is what and how the accomplished journalist said to the actress.
Opposing Views reports:
On her 95th birthday, Betty White spoke to Yahoo News’ Katie Couric. In the interview, the pair covered a wide variety of topics. When asked about the current state of our country, White’s comments surprised many (video below).
When the conversation turned to politics, it seemed as though Couric may have been looking for White’s thoughts on President Trump. However, White stayed away from commenting specifically on the new president, and instead offered a positive take on things.
“The world is in a very interesting place right now,” Couric said. “What do you think about the state of our country and how divided it seems to be?”
White responded: “It’s very divided, and we’re not in the best place we’ve ever been. I think that’s the time to buckle down and really work positively as much as you can instead of just saying, ‘This is terrible. He’s terrible.'”
She continued, “Just think, ‘Alright, there’s nothing I can do about that right now but I can do the best in my little circle.’ So if I do that, maybe you’ll do your best and we’ll get through this.”
White says she believes people should start thinking more positively because negativity leads to a “toxic” environment.
“So many people think negatively it’s like, ‘oh, you know what I hate?’ Instead of ‘alright, I’ll get through this,'” the 95-year-old said. “Then all of a sudden you start lifting up a little bit, but if you start with ‘you know what I hate,’ you’re gonna go right down the tubes.”
She added, “You’ve gotta get through it. And you can’t change it, so let’s just one foot in front of another and get through it.”
After an insanely long run on the much-loved sitcom Golden Girls and all these years, she’s outlived her costars since the White wasn’t ready to throw her entire career away, as so many others in Tinsel Town are quick to do to trash Trump. She’s always maintained a non-partial attitude towards every presidency before Trump’s who she admitted was “terrible,” which wasn’t a great thing to say, but she left her opinion at just that one word before making the bigger point of coming together and not complaining.
Considering that White is at a place late in her life that she doesn’t care who thinks what of her and whether they agree with her, she’s got nothing to lose. The same doesn’t go for young stars who are destroying their industry one anti-Trump comment at a time, and don’t realize it or care. The proof is in the statistics below and they can only blame themselves.
“People just haven’t been going to the movies this summer—at least, that’s what the numbers are telling us. According to comScore (via THR), both box office revenue and ticket sales declined this summer, hitting record lows,” Paste Magazine reports. “Revenue is down nearly 16 percent this year, lower than the 14.6 decline in 2014. As the summer of 2017 wraps up, it will end up as the first summer since 2006 to not make $4 billion in the box office. Additionally, ticket sales have reached a 25-year low.”
It’s time for stars to stop abusing their massive platforms for trashing the president and pushing an agenda. White, at her age, should realize that and set a better example for young stars. Instead, she followed their lead and jumped on that bandwagon that’s set to crash and burn their industry to the ground.
BREAKING!!! MEGA RECALL Of America’s FAVORITE FOOD!! Throw Away NOW, It Could KILL Your Family
The USDA made a significant announcement involving one of America’s favorite foods. You may want to look in your refrigerator and freezer before you cook another dish, because if this recall affects you, then you could become extremely sick. The recall involves a major company who had an accidental misbranding and released their product with known or undeclared allergens. This placed people in danger who were allergic to the specific allergens in the product and if eaten, the person could have a major reaction.
The company is Perdue, and they’ve recalled at least 500 pounds of their chicken items because of the undeclared allergens and misbranding. The product was a ready-to-cook chicken item known as chicken breast tenderloin fritters. A miscommunication or accident allowed this product to be improperly labeled. The false label called it the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter – but it was not! The problem with the chicken breast tenderloin fritters is that they contain eggs. The egg is a known allergen, and some people have reactions when in contact with their skin, or eating, the egg products. The misbranding could’ve caused a major allergic reaction that could have put people in the hospital with life-threatening issues.
The states that were most affected are Florida, Washington D.C., and Maryland. Even if you don’t reside in one of those areas, it would still be safe to check your Perdue chicken items to ensure they are properly labeled.
The USDA reported on the recall:
“WASHINGTON, January 23, 2018 – Perdue Foods LLC, a Monterey, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 530 pounds of chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains eggs, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
The ready-to-cook chicken breast tenderloin fritters were inadvertently labeled with the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter label. The chicken breast tenderloin fritters contain egg whites and the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritters do not. The ready-to-cook chicken tenderloin fritter items were produced on December 6, 2017. The following products are subject to recall:
10-lb. boxes containing two 5 lb. plastic bags with the box labeled “CHEF REDI HOMESTYLE CHICKEN TENDER FRITTER, RTC – LARGE” with the case code of 7374.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-11507” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food service locations in Florida, Maryland and Washington D.C.
The problem was discovered by the firm while performing routine label verification activities.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Perdue Consumer Relations, at 1-877-727-3447. Media with questions about the recall can contact Joe Forsthoffer, Director Corporate Communications, at (410) 341-2556.”
People with egg allergies can often break out into hives once the egg touches their skin. The reactions vary from person to person. They may get a runny nose, sneeze, or have some nausea or vomiting. Sometimes a person will have asthmatic-like symptoms such as coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and wheezing. Those are the minor symptoms compared to what else could happen.
However, someone who has a severe reaction to an egg allergy can suffer from anaphylaxis. A severe allergic reaction could cause a severe medical emergency that could be life-threatening. It requires the use of an adrenaline shot and emergency room visit. Use of epinephrine could be expected to deliver a shot of adrenaline.
Anaphylaxis can lead to a closed throat and restricted airways. This makes it difficult to breathe. It raises your pulse and causes abdominal pain/cramps. It can also put your body in shock which drops your blood pressure, makes you feel lightheaded/dizzy, or lose consciousness altogether.
People who are prone to having a severe reaction to eggs may often carry an EpiPen, which allows them or someone else to inject the adrenaline.
