Trump Signs Landmark Music Bill Into Law
“They were treated very unfairly,” Trump says of musicians who will benefit from Music Modernization Act

By AMY X. WANG

President Trump is due to sign the Music Modernization Act into law today, with Kanye West and Kid Rock also present for the ceremony.

President Trump signed the eagerly anticipated Music Modernization Act into law at a ceremony at the White House on Thursday, in the most high-profile event for the music industry in several years. Mike Love and Kid Rock, two of Trump’s most visible supporters in the music community, were at the White House for the signing alongside Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, country singer John Rich and the Doobie Brothers’ Jeff “Skunk” Baxter.

Intended to update music copyright law for the digital era, H.R. 1551 (formally the “Orrin G. Hatch-Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act”) accomplishes three key things: making sure songwriters and artists receive royalties on songs recorded before 1972; allocating royalties for music producers; and updating licensing and royalty rules for streaming services to pay rights-holders in a more streamlined fashion, via a new, independent entity. Under the act, many music creators will have a more reliable way of collecting the money that they’re due.

Trump warns India after their purchase of Russian missile system
By Pascale Davies with Reuters• last updated: 11/10/2018

US President Donald Trump has warned India that it could face consequences over a deal with Russia to purchase its missile system, the S-400 Triumph air defence system, which will give India's military the ability to shoot down aircraft and missiles at unprecedented ranges.

Trump was asked by a reporter about the agreement between India and Russia at the White House on Wednesday.

"India is going to find out," the US President said. Asked when, he replied, "You will see. Sooner than you think."

India could be faced with US sanctions under the federal law CAATSA (Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act), which is the same sweeping legislation that has been used to impose sanctions on Iran, North Korea, and Russia.

New Delhi's deal with Moscow was sealed at the fringes of an annual summit in India with both leaders Vladimir Putin and Narendra Modi present. The contract is believed to be worth more than €4 billion.

India signed eight other agreements with Russia in various fields such as space, nuclear energy, and railways.

Given this Congress and this President, it's a landmark achievement - meaning that it got done at all. But it's some minor, and mostly technical, changes to a narrow portion of copyright law.

Kanye West is not Picasso, by Leonard Cohen:

Kanye West is not Picasso
I am Picasso
Kanye West is not Edison
I am Edison
I am Tesla
Jay-Z is not the Dylan of Anything
I am the Dylan of anything
I am the Kanye West of Kanye West
The Kanye West
Of the great bogus shift of bullshit culture
From one boutique to another
I am Tesla
I am his coil
The coil that made electricity soft as a bed
I am the Kanye West Kanye West thinks he is
When he shoves your ass off the stage
I am the real Kanye West
I don’t get around much anymore
I never have
I only come alive after a war
And we have not had it yet

The poem, dated “March 15, 2015,” is suggested to have been written in response to comments Kanye West made at Oxford University, in which he compares himself to Picasso in a lengthy speech which you can revisit below. Then in 2016, ‘Ye dropped his album The Life of Pablo.

Kanye West delivers impromptu 'keynote' at Washington Apple store
Following his meeting with President Donald Trump, rapper Kanye West visited an Apple Store in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, where he proceeded to climb atop a display table and deliver a "keynote" to gathered customers.
:snippity:
According to Jenkins, West said he made a hat for Trump that reads "make America great," a take on the president's "Make America Great Again" or "MAGA" slogan. Trump donned the cap during his meeting with West earlier today, the rapper said, showing proof of the encounter on his iPhone.

West claimed the inclusion of "again" in Trump's catchphrase "hurts b[l]ack people," according to Jenkins.
:snippity:
West exited the premises in as dramatic a fashion as he entered, announcing he is "going to Africa."
Time for an intervention.

Kanye has as big an ego as Trump. He only loves Trump because Obama got caught on a hot mike commenting that Kanye is a jackass. I'd bet any amount of money that Kanye's infatuation with Trump is nothing more than getting back at Obama.

Trump says Nunes should get Medal of Freedom for his handling of Russian investigation
BY RORY APPLETON

October 11, 2018 12:34 PM
Updated October 11, 2018 02:36 PM

President Donald Trump said Thursday that Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Tulare, deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the highest civilian award given in the U.S. – for his handling of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The Fox & Friends interview began with Trump downplaying rumors he planned to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after the November midterm election.

Trump went further to attack former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and praise conservative congressmen, before pivoting to Nunes specifically.

“If this turns out as everyone thinks it will, Devin Nunes should get the Medal of Honor,” he said. “What he’s gone through, and his bravery, he should get a very important medal.”

Trump then clarified Nunes should receive the Medal of Freedom, not the Medal of Honor – which is only given to military veterans.

Medal of Honor is generally given to soldiers who put their lives on the line to save others. I can't envision Thump or any of his cabinet members or other associates of his doing such.

Pretty sure the Turkish prison officials wouldn’t have let Pastor Brunson vote.
