Let’s just call it what it is – ‘The Beyonce Factor’. We’re at the point now where singers, athletes, entertainers, youtube stars, and so forth have hijacked the minds of millennials everywhere. As you’ll discover on the show Dr. Martinelli chalks it up to a lack of being educated on the issues, and basic civics even. Ms. Gayl ‘Showbiz’ Murphy goes onto explain that we need to not take everything so darn seriously. Don’t be so invested in your entertainers that you begin to drink their brand of kool-aid she says. Lt. Sutton goes onto say – there are consequences for this ‘war on cops’ and that the erosion of trust and respect is in the process of doing irreparable damage to the profession and society. This is going to be a most interesting production today, as we discuss in more detail how this Beyonce Factor is changing the game – for the worse!

In an interview on 60 Minutes with Australia-based correspondent Michael Usher, Barbra Streisand said that if Trump is elected, “I’m either coming to Australia if you’ll let me in, or Canada.” Streisand is one of many entertainers who threaten their fans with promises to leave the country – if you don’t elect their candidate to office.
More and more the lines appear to be blurring when it comes to where you get your news and information from AND where you get your entertainment from! Probably some of you are outraged when you hear these stories, but I want you to ask yourself the bigger question today – How does all this play into the minds of our children? What are their perceptions about what appears to BE THE NEW NORMAL IN AMERICA!
