Thank you all for bringing more to the burlesque world and for being so strong and shining so bright!

Been looking for something like this in my life. Have you ever heard/written about or seen a Gonzo Rising show? One of my favorite things ever to attend.

Very interesting! Who would have thought burlesque would have such a strong presence here in the Mormon capital?

Foreign Meddling

Dear City Weekly readers,
Does our freshman senator, Mitt Romney, ever do any research before broadcasting his bonehead opinions? Now, he is quoted saying that for President Donald Trump to hear foreigners' political dirt on opponents is "simply unthinkable." How could he be unaware the Democratic elite paid for a British (i.e. foreign) dossier fantasizing the Trump campaign "colluded with Russians in the 2016 election." This two-year distraction found no collusion and cost the U.S. $35 million—charges still escalating in Democratic controlled congressional committee "investigations."

President Barack Obama's lobbying interference in their Brexit referendum cost U.K. taxpayers 1,668,650 Pounds and a deployment of 4,268 metropolitan police officers. This waste backfired and Brits still chose to leave the EU. Costs to U.S. taxpayers seem unavailable

The 20th century had a gradual trend of combatants outside war parameters: Nazis bombed citizens of Guernica in the Spanish Civil War creating the London Blitz and retaliation bombing of German cities; Viet Cong looked like civilians.

Is globalist Obama the instigator of a 21st century trend of interfering in elections in foreign countries?

Romney would do well to remember Mark Twain's dictum: "I prefer to keep my mouth closed and allow others to think I'm a fool rather than open it and remove all doubt."

Propaganda Factories

Would someone of national stature (preferably one of the Democratic Party candidates for president in 2020) please tell the people of our country how full of baloney the conservative, right-wing news media is?

The part that I find to be the most pathetic and laughable is how they play all of us and try to pretend that their "think-tanks" produce "objective," "unbiased" and "scientific" research when most of them really are phony and fake propaganda factories/mills funded by corporate billionaires and deca-millionaires who want to abolish all of the social safety-net programs like Social Security and Medicare.
