Beyonce looking sluttish as ever on a shopping trip to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills yesterday. Does she even understand the word ‘normal’?

Beyonce’s nephew Julez rocks the blue RayBans while on a shopping expedition with Bey on Rodeo Drive. Coincidentally, I’m going to pick up a pair of RayBan shades exactly like those for a friend of mine as a thank-you gift. Little man has style!

Chalk up yet another failure to the Obama administration’s efforts to socialize America.

Barack Hussein Obama’s attempts to regulate and control this country’s banking and auto industries have failed. As will his energy cap-and-tax bill, aka The BIG Lie. And Obama’s health care reform bill is floundering like a fish out of water.

Never has a president done so much in such little time to undermine and threaten this country’s economy!

Critics point to Obama’s efforts to sneak a tax increase and regulatory scheme under the umbrella of an Energy bill as proof that Obama is doing too much too soon, and with disastrous results.

In an editorial on, Sarah Palin, who is stepping down as Governor of Alaska to focus on family and lucrative speaking engagements, wrote:

I am deeply concerned about President Obama’s cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy. It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage.

There is no denying that as the world becomes more industrialized, we need to reform our energy policy and become less dependent on foreign energy sources. But the answer doesn’t lie in making energy scarcer and more expensive! Those who understand the issue know we can meet our energy needs and environmental challenges without destroying America’s economy. READ MORE…

Palin also warned that the job losses now covered under a provision in Obama’s cap-and-tax plan would lead to the government spending billions more in the form of welfare and handouts. Which, of course, leads to the sort of change that no one — but Obama — wants.

Barack Hussein Obama just lost another one: his car czar has stepped down after less than five months on the job. Steven Rattner, an investment banker, is under investigation for state pension fund hanky panky involving millions in kickbacks.

In 2005, Rattner’s investment firm, Quadrangle Group, won $150 million in pension business with the help of a shady top political consultant who is himself under indictment.

Once again, a clueless Obama continued to back Rattner even after the federal investigation into his firm’s business dealings were made public.

Rattner is replaced on the Auto Task Force by Ron Bloom, another of Obama’s pals who doesn’t know a thing about the auto industry.


Jay Z called into the Ryan Cameron Show on WVEE to clear up rumors surrounding the cancellation of his rained out concert at Chastain Park Amphitheater last night. Jigga confirmed he would return in the Fall to do a show somewhere in Atlanta, but no date was given. That pretty much means the Chastain show won’t be rescheduled as previously reported, so go get your money back. A couple of loyal readers emailed me to say they received refunds by calling Ticketmaster. But if you bought your tickets at Chastain Park, you’re out of luck.

Oh, and Jay Z also told Ryan exclusively that he signed a book deal. So listen for the scoop on that.

According to WVEE’s Ryan Cameron of the Ryan Cameron Show, Live Nation will not reschedule Jay Z’s canceled concert at Chastain Park Amphitheater.

The concert, originally scheduled for Sunday, July 12, was canceled due to a few raindrops. Rumors were that the concert would be rescheduled for August 13, but Live Nation issued a press release denying those reports.

The reality is: Jay Z’s show was not the sell out that Live Nation had hoped it would be.

All week long, nervous Live Nation execs watched the numbers coming out of Atlanta with dismay. If only they had read, they would have known the South isn’t checking for Jay Z. Old man Jigga lost his swag the day of his 40th birthday.

Jay Z fans that I spoke with today are outraged after losing a ton of money on the Jay tickets. They vow to remember this outrage when Jay Z’s next album drops.

Chastain Park Amphitheater’s policy is no refunds. Concerts and events are rain or shine.

The Game dropped an audio blog jewel dissin’ old man Jay Z, who fell off so far that Chastain Park cancelled his concert this past weekend because of a little rain (what’s a few rain drops if you’re trying to watch the God perform?)

The truth is Jay Z’s concert at Chastain Park was not sold out so he wasn’t showing up anyway. You still would have lost your money (more on that later).

The Game also goes in on that fraud Internet personality Amber Rose whose 15-minute timer keeps restarting (I wish I could take a hammer to her 15-minute clock).
