Ted Nugent calls Obama 'an evil, dangerous man who hates America'

Ted Nugent is at it again.

The bear-killing rocker is once again speaking out against President Obama via a recent interview with (wait for it) Guns.com, and his language is as colorful as ever. Nugent, who had to meet with the Secret Service last year after he basically threatened to harm Obama, is now accusing the second-term president of being a communist sympathizer, among other things.

So many other things: “He is an evil, dangerous man who hates America and hates freedom, and we need to fix this as soon as possible,” Nugent said while at a gun trade show in Las Vegas.

Much of Nugent’s concern stems from the president’s recent push for tighter gun laws, though, really, Nugent can find concern almost anywhere.

“I’m part of a very great experiment in self-government where we the people determine our own pursuit of happiness and our own individual freedom and liberty, not to be confused with the Barack Obama gang who believes in we the sheeple and actually is attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George that we escaped from in 1776,” the musician said. “If you want another Concord Bridge, I got some buddies,” he added, because why not.

Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, James Taylor to perform at Obama inauguration

Between the Super Bowl and the upcoming HBO documentary, and probably a new album, Beyoncé was already primed to have a big 2013. And then this happened: The Presidential Inaugural Committee has told People that Bey will perform the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration on Jan. 21. The event will take place in D.C., of course, in front of the U.S. Capitol Building.

The R&B star will be joined by Kelly Clarkson, who’ll sing “My Country Tis of Thee” — sung by Aretha Franklin, she of the big ribbon hat, in 2009. And to please the non-millennials, James Taylor will also be showing up to the shindig to perform “America the Beautiful.”

This, of course, won’t be Beyoncé’s first time to the inaugural rodeo. Back in 2009, she sang the Etta James classic “At Last” while the President and First Lady had their first dance at the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball. Take a look at her performance in the video below to refresh your memory:

Obama and outspoken Romney supporter Kid Rock meet up, Rock says 'no hard feelings'

kid-rock

That Kid Rock, he’s a pretty laid-back dude.

The Romney-supporting Rebel Soul musician ran into President Barack Obama at last night’s Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C., where he says the two were able to put their campaign differences behind them and have a good time together.

“It was nice,” Rock told CNN. “I saw the president tonight. He said, ‘I’m still here.’ I said, ‘No hard feelings.'”

Throughout the presidential race, Obama’s Republican rival Mitt Romney used Rock’ s “Born Free” as his campaign theme song, which Rock says he “felt great” about. But now he’s ready to move on.

“You cross your fingers, you try to move forward, you hope for the best,” he said. “You respect the office of the president of the United States, and the great thing is in four years, we get to choose again.”

Army cancels Ted Nugent concert after Obama comments

The Secret Service may be cool with Ted Nugent, but Fort Knox sure isn’t. According to CNN, the Kentucky military base canceled the rocker’s booking after the “Motor City Madman” dismissed President Barack Obama’s presidency as a “vile, evil, America-hating administration” last weekend and issuing the potential threat, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Commanders at Fort Knox posted the announcement on the base’s Facebook page, writing, “After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation.” Co-headliners REO Speedwagon and Styx are still on the bill and had not made any announcements about the situation at time of press.

The Secret Service conducted an investigation into Nugent’s remarks and determined he was not a threat.

Secret Service to 'conduct an appropriate follow-up' on Ted Nugent's inflammatory remarks

Someone’s back on the radio yelling things like “I’m like Mother Teresa with a guitar,” and his name rhymes with Ned Tugent.

Continuing his history of courting political controversy, Ted Nugent is once again railing against President Obama’s “vile, evil, America-hating administration” — and the Secret Service is taking notice.

The “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker showed up at an NRA rally this past weekend and spouted off a winding anti-Obama rant, culminating in the declaration, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers play special show for Obama volunteers- VIDEO

About 12 hours after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Red Hot Chili Peppers gave it away, gave it away, gave it away… for Obama campaign volunteers at Cleveland’s House of Blues. As Cleveland’s Plain Dealer writes, the band performed a special 45-minute concert for 1,200 liberal-minded music lovers. Tickets were free, provided a would-be concert-goer had worked in an Obama phone bank.

A video montage of Obama speeches paved the way for Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith, and Josh Klinghoffer’s set. In between hits like “Under the Bridge” and “Can’t Stop,” Kiedis urged the audience to register voters and declared his support for our 44th president. From Blood Sugar Sex Magik to stumping for a sitting POTUS — who says a rocker’s edge dulls with age? READ FULL STORY

President still thinks Kanye West is a jackass; Beyonce still thinks First Lady is the best

President Obama is no flip-flopper.

As the general election starts to shape up, our sitting commander in chief made sure to get a jump start on likely opponent and noted mind changer Mitt Romney by reassuring the public of his commitment to one of the most pressing matters of the day: Kanye West’s jackassitude.

In his in-depth profile of Yeezy for The Atlantic, David Samuels asked the president if he preferred Kanye West or Jay-Z, the hip-hop equivalent of “boxers or briefs?”

Of course, Obama replied as expected: “Jay-Z.”
