MTV Plans a Major Return to Music … What a Novel Concept (VIDEO)

MTV plans to put the MUSIC back in MTV

As reported at the LA Times, What’s old is new: MTV plots a major return to music. Wow, imagine that, MTV finally realizes after a terrible past 25 years of programming that the “M” in MTV actually stands for music. I have to admit and I am about to date myself, I remember the very first day and song that MTV hit TV. How can you forget the music video, Video Killed the Radio Star by the Buggles.  In 1981 it was a ground breaking event when a 24 hour music television was born. And yes, I had such a crush on Martha Quinn :)

Then MTV decided to go the way of the dodo and do everything and anything except music. They had an opportunity to ride the wave and they went the wrong direction. However, for MTV is probably too late and too much innovation has taken place since 1981, because just as Video killed the Radio star, the Internet and social media may have killed MTV.

MTV’s original show

For much of the modern era, the word music in the MTV acronym has been an afterthought, a vestige of an earlier time and identity.

That’s all about to change.

Under the guidance of new President Sean Atkins, the youth network is embarking on a redo that will put music at its center.

With ratings flat or down in a number of time periods, MTV is turning to songs as its savior. The network is prepping a new version of its classic “Unplugged”; a music competition show in the world of hip-hop produced by Mark Burnett; and an L.A.-set live-music series titled “Wonderland.” The last one is MTV’s first such program in about two decades.

Though much of the network’s success this century has come via nonscripted series with little connection to bands (“Jersey Shore,” “The Hills”)–and though original scripted programming remains the rage across much of the cable dial — MTV believes it will fare better by returning to its roots.

“The thing that kept coming back when I first started this job was, ‘Why doesn’t MTV do more music?” Atkins said in an interview. “Music is our muse, our spirit animal. And it’s a great muse to have. So we’re leaning into it.”

RUT-ROH … Justice Department Grants Immunity to State Dept Staffer Bryan Pagliano Who Set Up Clinton Email Server

THE DEMOCRAT POLITICAL MACHINE’S WHEELS ARE ABOUT TO FALL OFF AS FORMER STATE DEPT STAFFER GETS IMMUNITY IN CLINTON EMAIL SERVER SCANDAL …

Oh my, forget about all the nonsense you hear about the Republican party and the establishment vs. Trump, get a load of what is happening for the Democrats and their presumptive nominee. The WAPO is reporting that the Justice Department has granted immunity to former State Department staffer Bryan Pagliano, the individual who set up the private email server for Hillary Clinton. The gang from Scooby Do has the following to say … “ZOINKS, JEEPERS!!!” You will remember Bryan Pagliano, he is the former tech guy who set up Hillary’s servers who previously took the 5th. Because we all know that innocent people and one’s with nothing to hide do such things.

Imagine that, all this time Hillary Clinton was right about that vast right wing conspiracy that was out to get her. NOT! The Barack Obama DOJ granted immunity to Hillary’s ex email tech who previously took the Fifth. Welcome aboard to the vast right wing conspiracy, Barack Obama. Just how messy is this going to get for Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party?

Maybe it is not about the delegates, maybe its about the indictment.

The Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer, who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as part of a criminal investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, according to a senior law enforcement official.

The official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009.

As the FBI looks to wrap up its investigation in the coming months, agents are likely to want to interview Clinton and her senior aides about the decision to use a private server, how it was set up, and whether any of the participants knew they were sending classified information in emails, current and former officials said.

Legal Insurrection – Hillary email scandal moves into flip flip flip phase.

As I said earlier, Bernie Sanders just needs to hang on long enough, Bernie playing to box out other candidates after Hillary indicted.

Until Huma flips. Then it’s all over.

Hillary Clinton’s Unsecured Emails Had OPERATIONAL INTEL That Put LIVES in Jeopardy

It turns out that Hillary Clinton’s emails are not a “nothing burger” as Clinton and her surrogates would want you to believe.

This Hillary Clinton scandal gets worse and worse and it makes one wonder just how long Democrats and the liberal MSM can ignore the obvious? Hillary Clinton is damaged goods and the latest revelation that the Top Secret emails found on Hillary’s “unclassified” personal bathroom server was colossally damaging to our national security and has put lives at risk. Everyone who defends Ms. Clinton asks, what difference does this scandal make? Really?

What Difference Does It Make That I Put Lives At Risk and Threatened National Security?

Hillary Clinton_What Difference Does it make

Nevertheless, Hillary has upped the ante by demanding that the twenty-two Top Secret emails that have been withheld by the State Department be released to the public so Americans can see that they are in fact innocuous, as Ms. Clinton and her defenders maintain. Yet this is pure political theater: she surely knows that the emails are not going to be released on security grounds anytime soon, probably not for several decades, at least.

What, then, is in those twenty-two emails? Contrary to the assertions of Team Clinton that the information was benign, a “nothing-burger” to cite her allies, implying that the overzealous Intelligence Community has classified information that doesn’t need protection, their contents are Top Secret with good reason. Hillary has opted for cries of “overclassification” as her last line of defense in EmailGate, notwithstanding that’s the choice of any officials in Washington, DC, who have broken secrecy laws and have no leg left to stand on.

Today FoxNews has reported that those twenty-two Top Secret emails included “operational intelligence” that involves espionage sources and methods, adding that lives have been put at risk by Hillary’s mishandling of this information.

The Right Scoop opines and quotes Joe Biden, “This is a BFD.”

I have to agree with Q and O 100%, because “any one who has ever worked in or around classified material understands how draconian the rules concerning their use are.” I have personally done so for years. When one does, you are provided continual education on how to handle material and asked to sign endless compliance forms that you have done so properly and will continue to do so. Anything Hilary Clinton did with regards to her emails and a private server circumventing the government process was an intentional act to hide things. There can be no other explanation. We are witness to the emails that have been deemed top secret; however, can you imagine what was on the emails that she destroyed, knowing how damning they were? How this woman is running for president is criminal and so are her actions.

State Department Announces that Nearly 2 Dozen Emails on Hillary Clinton’s Private Server are So Secret and “Too Damaging” to National Security to Release Under any Circumstances

HILLARY CLINTON SHOULD BE IN LEG IRONS, NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT … I GUESS WE KNOW WHO OBAMA’S FIRST PARDON WILL BE FOR. 

State Depart confirms that some of the emails on Hillary Clinton’s private server are so top secret and “too damaging” to national security that they will never see the light of day. This is a far cry from Hillary’s claims that there were no top secret emails on the server. What a shock, Hillary Clinton lied. According to Intelligence agencies, the information was top secret when it was sent and hit the Clinton’s servers, it was not upgraded after the fact (Watch Video below). However, the State Department continues to spread lies when it comes to this fact.

UNREAL, HILLARY CLINTON NEEDS TO BE INDICTED AND FOUND GUILTY. SHE KNOWS DAMN WELL WHAT SHE DID WAS WRONG AND KNEW SO AS SHE CONTINUED TO DO IT. WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION … WHAT DID SHE DESTROY AND WHAT WAS SHE HIDING?

The intelligence community has deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging” to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding.

The determination was first reported by Fox News, hours before the State Department formally announced Friday that seven email chains, found in 22 documents, will be withheld “in full” because they, in fact, contain “Top Secret” information.
The State Department, when first contacted by Fox News about withholding such emails Friday morning, did not dispute the reporting – but did not comment in detail. After a version of this report was first published, the Obama administration confirmed to the Associated Press that the seven email chains would be withheld. The department has since confirmed those details publicly.

The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton’s personal server.

Just curious, can a President pardon some one before they have been found guilty of a crime?

The political hacks at the State Department Won’t Acknowledge That Clinton Emails Were Born Classified.

Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge asked whether the State Department disagreed with the intelligence community’s determination that Clinton’s email contained information that was highly-classified when it hit the server. The Clinton campaign has argued that the information was only classified retroactively.

“The ICIG’s letter from January 14, we’ve confirmed that it was the finding of the agencies who own the intelligence that they were top secret, even containing SAP information, when they hit the server,” Herridge said, using an acronym for Special-Access Programs, among the most closely-guarded secrets of government. “So this is a settled matter, this is not something that is still being pursued. Do you accept that?”

Kirby would not speak to the letter.

“I’m not going to speak specifically to that letter or the ICIG’s findings. You’d have to talk to them about that,” Kirby said.

Kirby insisted that the State Department would continue its review to determine if information in Clinton’s emails needed to be classified and redacted.

“It is the State Department’s responsibility to make the final adjudication on classification,” Kirby said.

Herridge said it was the responsibility of the intelligence agencies who own the information, not the State Department.

“No, that’s not correct,” Herridge said. “The agency that owns the information has final say over the classification, not the State Department, and these declarations relate to intelligence that was not State Department intelligence.”

Kirby conceded that the State Department had accepted the intelligence community’s decision to upgrade the information in this case.

Email-Server Gate: Hillary Clinton’s Emails So Secret Some lawmakers Can’t Read Them

ARE YOU KIDDING, HER EMAILS WERE SO SECRET THAT THEY ARE REDACTED TO LAWMAKERS …

Sorry folks, Hillary Clinton broke the law with regards to her callous and brazen use of a private server and maintaining private and top secret emails. FOX News is reporting that some of Hillary Clinton’s emails on her private server contained information so secret that senior lawmakers who oversee the State Department cannot read them without fulfilling additional security requirements. UNREAL. But of course the always truthful Hillary Clinton stating at the outset of this scandal that there was no secret emails on her private server.

If the Obama administration does not indict Hillary Clinton, it will prove just how corrupt it is and how there are two sets of rules of justice for those in the United States. Those that are pro-Obama and Democrat and the rest. The law is the law. This woman needs to be indicted. Drip, drip, drip, this woman cannot be trusted to run for dog catcher, let alone president.

Some of Hillary Clinton’s emails on her private server contained information so secret that senior lawmakers who oversee the State Department cannot read them without fulfilling additional security requirements, Fox News has learned.

The emails in question, as Fox News first reported earlier this week, contained intelligence classified at a level beyond “top secret.” Because of this designation, not all the lawmakers on key committees reviewing the case have high enough clearances.

A source with knowledge of the intelligence review told Fox News that senior members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, despite having high-level clearances, are among those not authorized to read the intelligence from so-called “special access programs” without taking additional security steps — like signing new non-disclosure agreements.

These programs are highly restricted to protect intelligence community sources and methods.

As Fox News previously reported, a Jan. 14 letter from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III to senior lawmakers said an intelligence review identified “several dozen” additional classified emails — including specific intelligence from “special access programs” (SAP).

That indicates a level of classification beyond even “top secret,” the label previously given to two emails found on her server, and brings even more scrutiny to the Democratic presidential candidate’s handling of the government’s closely held secrets.

Washington Free Beacon: Fox News Chief Intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported Thursday night that more people may have viewed classified information on emails sent to Hillary Clinton’s private server than previously thought, some of which reportedly had a level of classification above “top secret.”

“Fox News is learning tonight there may be more spillage of classified information,” Herridge said. “A letter to Congress says several dozen classified emails were identified, but that number only reflects the main or root emails, not the number of times that classified email was forwarded, replied to, or copied to other people who did not have a need to know.”

Herridge reported on Tuesday that the Inspector General (IG) for the Intelligence Community identified “several dozen” classified emails on Clinton’s private server in her home beyond the two “top secret” ones already announced. Some of these emails contained intelligence known as “special access programs (SAP),” which is highly sensitive information that a select few people in government can view.

This information is considered so secret that the Inspector General had to obtain a higher security clearance to view the emails in question, and senior lawmakers with oversight of the State Department are not authorized to view them without fulfilling the necessary requirements to get a higher clearance.

Check It Out at Blink on Crime … Netflix ‘Making A Murderer’- Epic BingeBlast Netertainment Or Visionary Expose’ ?

You have all heard about the Netflix documentary, ‘Making a Murder,’ that has taken the internet and social media by storm. Check out what BLINK from Blink on Crime has to say about the story. Its the story that has captivated the net, now read Blink’s unique style of analysis as she reviews it and as she poses the question, is it an “Epic BingeBlast Netertainment Or Visionary Expose”?

Making a Murder

Teresa Halbach, a freelance photographer for Auto Trader Magazine, had been to the Avery salvage yard five times prior to Oct 31, 2005.   Avery Salvage Yard is a 40 acre+ field of crushed cars, parts and trailers housing several members of the Avery family, gravel pits and a quarry.  Not going to lie,  I would not choose to live next to the Avery brood for reasons I will discuss later, but then again, I am the person who drives past properties with the various appliance or dead vehicle cemeteries scattered about and ponder- I wonder where the dead body is?

Judicial Watch Says The State Department has been Providing “Inaccurate and Incomplete” Responses to Requests for Emails & other Documents involving Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

HOW IS HILLARY CLINTON RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT AND NOT BEHIND BARS?

Judicial Watch states that the State Department has been providing “inaccurate and incomplete” responses to requests for emails and other documents involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Imagine that? An Obama government agency not providing a watch dog group accurate and complete responses to material that a court says they they are entitled to protect We the People. What a joke government has become. It is no longer about “of by and for the people” but instead about power grabs, maintaining power and covering their asses. It is pathetic to think that an individual who has been caught red handed doing something illegal and is being investigated by the FBI is actually running for the presidential nomination of a major political party and leading. How could America possible allow an individual so corrupt to be President?

hillary-clinton-jail

 The State Department has been providing “inaccurate and incomplete” responses to requests for emails and other documents involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a watchdog says in a new report released Thursday.

The 29-page IG report says the leadership of the State Department “has not played a meaningful role in overseeing or reviewing the quality” of the responses to requests for documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

As a result, requests from organizations such as The Associated Press, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and Judicial Watch have been mishandled in various ways, the IG said.

In one example, CREW asked for records in 2012 that would show the number of email accounts held by then-Secretary Clinton. While senior staffers at the department regularly corresponded with her on her private account and her chief of staff was made aware of the request, the State Department replied that there were “no records responsive” to the query.

The response to CREW came in May 2013 — three months after Clinton had left office.

At other times, the IG said, media organizations have put in nearly identical requests for documents, only to receive different sets of records in response.

In 2015, Clinton’s use of a private email server emerged as a flashpoint in the presidential race, with Republicans using it to attack her candidacy. A federal court judge ordered the State Department to release 55,000 pages of Clinton’s emails last May as a result of a lawsuit filed by Vice News.

“The Department had a preexisting process in place to handle the tens of thousands of requests it received annually, and that established process was followed by the Secretary and her staff throughout her tenure,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon told The Washington Post.

The IG said it has a separate report forthcoming on the “preservation requirements” that apply to former and current secretaries of State and the department’s “efforts to recover federal records from personal accounts.”

24 Year Old, Black Kean University Grad Kayla-Simone McKelvey Charged with Third-degree Creating a False Public Alarm After Posting Threats to Kill Black Males & Females

HMM, I GUESS AL SHARPTON AND JESSEE JACKSON WON’T BE VISITING NJ TO PROTEST HATE CRIMES … BLACK ON BLACK CRIME.

24 year old Kayla-Simone McKelvey, of Union, New Jersey, who recently graduated from Kean University in May 2015 finds her self in some hot water that she completely created, or should we say, made up. The black female Kean alum has been charged with third-degree creating a false public alarm after she tweeted threatening comments on Twitter stating, “i will kill every black male and female at kean university”.

Third-degree Creating a False Public Alarm? Sorry, she should be cgarged with a hate crime as her sole intent was to create friction and animosity among backs and whites. Now that is truly hateful.

Kayla-Simone McKelvey

A recent Kean graduate has been charged with being responsible for a series of tweets threatening black students at the school two weeks ago, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced Tuesday.

Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, of Union – a black alum who graduated in May – was charged by summons with third-degree creating a false public alarm.

Park said an investigation by the Union County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Prosecutions Unit and Kean University police found that McKelvey, a self-proclaimed activist, participated in a student rally regarding racial issues on Nov. 17, but left midway through the rally and walked to a computer station in a university library.

Once there, McKelvey allegedly created an anonymous Twitter account –  @keanuagainstblk – and began posting threats of violence against black Kean students.

The first message around 10 p.m. said “kean university twitter against blacks is for everyone who hates blacks people” and a tweet about there being a bomb on the campus, and then continued with several other tweets about shooting black students at the university.

i will kill every black male and female at kean university

After making the posts, McKelvey returned to the rally and attempted to spread awareness of the threats, authorities said.

Black Man Steven Hildreth Jr. Praises Officers After He was Pulled Over Without Incident … “Police officers are people, too.”

IMAGINE THAT … THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MESSAGE REALLY ISN’T TRUE FROM THE MOUTH OF A BLACK MAN …

A black Arizona man, Steven Hildreth Jr. posted on Facebook an incident he has with police officers and praised then for their professionalism. The Tucson police pulled over the black man because he was driving with a headlight out. It also turned out that Hildreth  was wearing a hoodie and was packing a Glock in his car. According to race baiters and the Black Lives Matter agenda folks, this black man should be dead, killed at the hands of racist cops. The story could not be more different. The police asked him if he had any weapons and Hildreth replied, “yes sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket.” Read the entire story and his Facebook account. of what happens when you simply act with respect. The Facebook post has gone viral, for all the right reasons!

Here is the message from Steven Hildreth, “I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities. Maybe … just maybe … that notion is bunk. Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.”

However, what is truly pathetic and sad are all the comments that proclaim Steven Hildreth Jr. to be an “uncle Tom” and “house ni**er” for simply behaving and acting with class and respect. This speaks volumes to those who posted the comments.

Washington Times:

“The officer asks me how I’m doing, and then asks if I have any weapons. ‘Yes, sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket,” Mr. Hildreth recalled in the post, which amassed more than 176,000 shares since Tuesday.

“The officer explains for his safety and mine, he needs to disarm me for the stop. I understand, and I unlock the vehicle,” he alleged. “I explain that I’m running a 7TS ALS holster but from the angle, the second officer can’t unholster it. Lead officer asks me to step out, and I do so slowly. Officer relieves me of my Glock and compliments the X300U I’m running on it. He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard.”

“Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date,” Mr. Hildreth wrote. “Officers return with my Glock in an evidence back, locked and cleared. ‘Because you were cool with us and didn’t give us grief, I’m just going to leave it at a verbal warning. Get that headlight fixed as soon as possible.’ I smile. ‘Thank you, sir.’”

“I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities,” Mr. Hildreth argued. “Maybe … just maybe … that notion is bunk. Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.”
