Melania Trump Banned From Toby Keith Concert in Saudi Arabia

Published

on

As Donald Trump and the First Lady get ready to visit Saudi Arabia, where the president is expected to announce an arms deal valued at $100 million or more, the nation has planned “male only” entertainment that Melania will not be allowed to attend — including a Toby Keith concert.

Toby Keith, who played during the celebration prior to Trump’s inauguration in DC, will be performing in the Saudi capital of Riyadh. The concert will be free and open to the public — as long as you have a penis. No women will be allowed to attend the event. Popular Saudi lute player Rabeh Sager will also perform.

Many of Keith’s songs, such as  “Whiskey Girl,” “Beer For My Horses” and “I Love This Bar,” are inspired by alcohol — which is also banned in the Muslim nation. It is unclear if he will still perform the classic hits.

While she won’t be allowed to enjoy some country music, Melania Trump will at least not be required to don the strict Muslim attire — including head coverings — that is typically expected of visitors.

As we previously reported, German Chancellor Angela Merkel did not wear a veil on her recent visit to Riyadh, but her hair was censored on the nation’s news.

Ironically, Saudi Arabia is the newest addition to the United Nation’s Women’s Rights Commission.

Saudi Arabia’s addition to the commission, which is “exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” has been mocked globally. Even the far-left Washington Post referred to it as a “bit of a slap in the face for women’s rights.”

During the two day trip, Trump “will meet and have lunch with leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries, where he will deliver an inspiring yet direct speech on the need to confront radical ideology and his hopes for a peaceful vision of Islam to dominate across the world,” US national security advisor H R McMaster told reporters earlier this week. He added that the trip is “intended to demonstrate America’s commitment to our Muslim partners.”

On Saturday evening, the first lady will join the president for dinner with members of the Saudi royal family.

Saudi Arabia has long been considered one of the worst nations for women’s rights — and is continuing to decline. In 2016, the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report ranked Saudi Arabia 141 out of 144 countries for gender equality. In the previous year’s findings they were ranked at 134.

Under the nation’s sharia law, men are permitted to marry as many as four women at a time, and the figure includes marrying children, as there is no minimum age for marriage. Impoverished parents still marry off daughters for money.

Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive and must have a male guardian give them permission before they can conduct any business or receive certain medical treatments.

ACQUITTED FOREVER: President Trump is Found ‘Not Guilty’ by the Senate and Will Remain in Office Following Impeachment

The Democrats wasted the public’s time and money with this charade.

Published

on

President Donald Trump has been officially acquitted of two articles of impeachment and will not be convicted following his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He will remain in office despite the best efforts of the Democrats.

“The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, President of the United States, upon two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the Senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein, it is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts said to conclude the trial.

The video of the end of the proceedings can be seen here:

On the first article of impeachment pertaining to abuse of power, 48 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 52 determined he was not guilty. On the second article of impeachment pertaining to obstruction of Congress, 47 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 53 determined he was not guilty.

The Senate would have had to garner a supermajority of 67 Senators to determine that Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses. However, not even a simple majority could come to that conclusion even though the Democrats threw everything but the kitchen sink in an attempt to convince them.

“You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of the country,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “A man without character or ethical compass will not find his way.”

The Democrat-led proceedings ended up being a massive waste of time at great expense to the U.S. taxpayer, as Trump and his Republican supporters said they would be.

“The president has done nothing wrong, and these types of impeachments must end,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone about the witch hunt that occurred.

With impeachment now behind him, President Trump can focus on enacting his agenda and winning re-election in November.
