On May 8, Young was in Nashville to host the CMA Foundation’s third annual Music Teachers in Excellence Awards, which honors music educators in the United States. NBC News was there when Young went back to his hometown of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, to visit Brenda Gregory, his former choir teacher at Siegel High School. Gregory told NBC News: “When Chris was in my classroom as a freshman, I knew that he had that spark. I just thought to myself, ‘This kid is going to go someplace.'”

Kali Uchis announces In Your Dreams North American fall tour

Latin crossover singer Kali Uchis has announced a run of North American headlining concert dates set for this fall to help promote her recently released sophomore album, Isolation. The run of headlining concerts are scheduled to begin on Sept. 13 at Showbox SoDo in Seattle, and carries on throughout the rest of the month and well into October before coming to an end with a gig at Minneapolis’ First Avenue on Oct. 23.

Scheduled stops on the fall trek include shows at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre, Los Angeles’ Shrine Exposition Hall and New York City’s Terminal 5. Uchis will be joined throughout the tour on select shows by multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano and Cuco. Tickets for select shows on the tour will be going on sale to the public starting this Friday (June 22) at 10 a.m. local time, and can be purchased by clicking here.

Uchis released Isolation back on April 6, which included cameos and contributions from a wide range of pop and adult contemporary artists such as Thundercat, Gorillaz’s Damon Albarn, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Bootsy Collins and Tyler, The Creator, just to name a few. Uchis was also notably the only female artist to be featured on Gorillaz’s 2017 Humanz album. The early spring arrival of Isolation also provided Uchis’ stock within the mainstream realm a well-deserved boost, in addition to some new music to perform at both weekends of Coachella. Prior to the upcoming tour, fans can also catch Uchis when she takes the stage at Chicago’s Lollapalooza in early August.

The greatest threat to America isn’t Russia, China or North Korea; it’s the corrupt deep state, and it must be drained

Long before Donald Trump had declared himself a candidate for president, there was a “Deep State” which operated far outside the mainstream of America, in the shadows.

Members of the Deep State include the Pravda media, U.S. intelligence agencies, and federal law enforcement, all of which sort of lay down the law to Congress and incoming presidents that things are done a certain way in Washington, D.C., and the world, and anyone who tries to stray outside of established parameters gets crushed.

Few Americans were previously aware of such an entity, and with good reason: No one attempted to cross the Deep State, leaving its members free to continue operating in the shadows, pulling strings behind the scenes and calling the shots.

That was before Trump came on the scene.

Right away the Deep State saw him as different. Uncontrollable. Outside the mainstream.

He was self-funding his own candidacy. He wasn’t beholden to anyone. He wasn’t a ‘regular’ candidate, which means he was never the “establishment’s choice.”

Fearful of what he might do if he actually won, the Deep State launched an operation to derail his candidacy so that they could ‘anoint’ Hillary Clinton, a card-carrying member of the establishment “club” who knew the Deep State’s rules.

Shocked by her inability to defeat him, the Deep State then launched an “insurance policy” — an operation aimed at undermining POTUS Trump’s administration by taking away as much of his ability to govern the country as possible. The objectives were to sow division among the people by casting as much doubt as possible about the legitimacy of his victory. That effort continues today in the form of special counsel Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” investigation and efforts by former Deep State operatives to continue spreading false narratives.

Now, Trump finds himself in the middle of a ‘war,’ so to speak, with a Deep State that abhors him — and fears him — as he works to dismantle their grip on power.

He knows he has to win this battle

In an interview with Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy last week, Trump made it clear exactly who and what he is up against. 

“I beat Clinton dynasty. I beat Bush dynasty, and now, I guess, hopefully I’m in the process of beating very dishonest intelligence,” he said. 

While he’s never going to be portrayed fairly by the Pravda media, in his interview Trump opined that he is very popular among rank-and-file FBI personnel, and by extension, rank-and-file intelligence community personnel, all of whom he has praised effusively. 

The biggest problem has been with ranking members of the intelligence and federal law enforcement agencies — careerists who had hitched their wagon to Hillary Clinton because they’ve lived in the D.C. Swamp for so long they don’t know any other way. (Related: CONFIRMED: Barack Obama was running the entire Spygate operation that violated federal law to spy on Trump campaign officials.)

“[W]hat they did was incredible and a real insult to millions of people that voted in that election on both sides,” Trump said of the Deep State plot to undermine him, as Breitbart News reported.

In discussing the conclusion reached by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz in his report last week, which found fault with the FBI’s investigation into Hillary’s email scandal — that there was “no political bias” — the president was incredulous. It was obvious from texts exchanged between ranking agents and others working on the case that they were in it to clear Clinton so that she would be free to ‘beat Trump.’

But overall the discussion made it clear that Trump realizes fully he’s in a battle to save his presidency from forces in the media and the federal government who don’t accept his victory and will never accept his presidency.

It’s a ‘war’ he knows he has to win.

Trump defends North Korea summit, trashes media: 'We got so much for peace in the world'

As other politicians prepared for Sunday morning talk shows, President Trump circumvented the traditional press circuit once again by tweeting a blue streak on the North Korea summit and, from his perspective, the media’s failure to properly acknowledge his successes.

He repeatedly defended the highly publicized meeting in Singapore last week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un against criticisms that it was primarily a spectacle that yielded few tangible results. Trump said Kim agreed to stop testing nuclear weapons and rockets and to return hostages.

Trump specifically pushed back against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who said on the Senate floor that the summit was more show than substance. To make his point, Schumer used an old Texas phrase “all hat, no cattle” but got the order wrong — hence, “all cattle, no hat.” Trump, not one to let the mistakes of his opponents slide, quoted the error back to Schumer while defending the summit.

Trump claimed there was “a coordinated effort” among news outlets to insist that Trump gave up “sooo much” in the negotiation process by meeting with Kim, and he said they focus on this point because they have nothing else to criticize. He also elaborated on his proposal for the United States and South Korea to stop running war games in the region, which he called needlessly provocative and expensive when trying to conduct negotiations in good faith. Pyongyang has long asked for an end to the war games, which are joint military exercises to prepare South Korean and American forces for the possibility of actual warfare.

Trump suggested that the agreement to denuclearize the Korean peninsula is being celebrated throughout Asia and that only political partisans in the United States would rather see this deal fall through than see the president succeed — even if it saves millions of lives.

Throughout the morning tweets, Trump boasted about how well the economy has been doing under his watch, claimed that he has a wonderful relationship with German Chancellor Angela Merkel despite news coverage, and reiterated his accusation that Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is a witch hunt.

Wait, What? Matthews Compares Republicans to Jonestown Followers, North Korean Soldiers

MSNBC’s Hardball
June 13, 2018
7:21 p.m. Eastern

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Well, you know, Corker’s not exactly a bomb thrower and he’s not comparing this guy to James Jones and drinking the kool-aid and cults and that’s pretty deep. 

JOHN FEEHERY: I don’t think that — 

MATTHEWS: You think it’s true?

FEEHERY: Well, listen. I think that upsetting the Trump voter not necessarily the president but the Trump voter is bad politics. 

MATTHEWS: You mean the bear?

FEEHERY: The bear.

MATTHEWS: He’s talking about the bear. 

FEEHERY: The bear is the trump voter. 

MATTHEWS: Oh really?

FEEHERY: And Sanford, you know, it’s easy to complain when you’re leaving or get on your soapbox.

MATTHEWS: Well, that’s the point.

FEEHERY: That’s the easiest thing to do. The hardest thing to do is run again and compete and win these voters and appeal to them on the issues they care about. What they care about are jobs, they care about national security, they care about rising wages and they care about immigration and you know, Mr. Corker is leaving and you know, so no one cares what he says. 

MATTHEWS: Well, you’re making his point, Cornell, I think, John just made the point. The only guys free to speak their minds are the ones leaving.


CORNELL BELCHER: Well, there certainly is something different about this — this — this President and what we’re seeing. Certainly — certainly, Bush didn’t hold the base of the Republican party this way and as someone who worked for Barack Obama could tell you, he certainly didn’t hold the base of the Democratic Party this way. There is something very different that’s going on here and I mean, I said it himself, Trump said I could stand in the middle of Times Square and shoot someone and I wouldn’t lose any support. So, there is something textually different from what — with Trump than what I think we saw from Bush and Obama. But the question for me becomes can you be the party of Trump? And I think Speaker Boehner has it got right, you know, this is Trump’s party now. Can you be the party of Trump and also be the party of middle America? Yes you can do well in these primaries, but I can tell you right now. The Republican they nominated to take on Virginia is way out of line with Virginia.


MATTHEWS: Anyway, the Republican Party becoming more like a cult than a political party? Boy, that’s hard news for the Republicans. You’re in a cult. This is Jonestown? The Hardball Roundtable’s sticks [sic] with us.


MATTHEWS: Outgoing Republican senator, I love this phrase, outgoing, in other words, they actually start talking when they’re outgoing, they become outgoing. Anway, Bob Corker’s fought — calling out his fellow Republicans as being like a cult, like Jonestown or something under President Trump. Let’s watch. 

TENNESSEE REPUBLICAN SENATOR BOB CORKER: We have a lot of people who are willing to do the things that they feel are right for our country. We have some who are fearful of upsetting the president. Again, it would mostly be around the leadership, but it’s — it’s not a good place for us to be. 

MATTHEWS: Well, Corker said part of the cultish behavior comes from concerns over getting re-elected. Of course, South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford. who lost his primary last night after poking the bear told The Washington Post today that Republicans “don’t want the tweet I got last night….There’s no motivation like self-motivation.” Gene? 


MATTHEWS: They don’t want it. This guy — Roosevelt couldn’t get rid of people. He couldn’t purge them when he tried in ‘38. It wasn’t — it wasn’t doable in the old days. Maybe the Democratic Party is a little more loosey-goosey but they don’t take orders like the Republicans do. 

SCOTT: Well, right now, I think they’re seeing that the voters are with Trump far more than the voters have been with Congress and they’re just nervous and they’re afraid and I think what’s been interesting to me —

MATTHEWS: Don’t they want a local person to be a little bit independent? Answer: No!

SCOTT: — no, no, not at all. We haven’t seen that at all. One of the things I find interesting about Corker’s words, even Flake’s words is that this — this personality cult was happening way before what we have now, back when Corker was encouraging people to get on the Trump Train and, so, I haven’t seen a lot of self-reflection admitting what role they played in creating this political climate. 


MATTHEWS: Trump watch, Wednesday June 13th, 2018. The Republican Party is in the process now of purifying itself. It’s purifying of anyone who doesn’t march in step with President Trump. Listen to them. They all sound like they’ve been scripted by Sean Hannity, all marching along in stiff, locked cadence and regimental discipline, speaking in one voice, smiling in unison, contorting their faces into the same expression as the man next to them, you know, like scared to death soldiers marching in Pyongyang. Look at what happens if you get out of step? You’re gone like Senator Bob Corker or Senator Jeff Flake or Congressman Charlie Dent or Congressman Ryan Costello or Trey Gowdy. If you’re not in step with the Trump marchers, not tune with the line from the White House, if you can’t lip-synch with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you’re dead in Trump’s eyes. And none of this has anything to do with what we used to consider Republican values. The GOP stood for free trade, Trump stands for trade wars. The Grand Ole Party called it self the party of fiscal discipline. That was before the new guy decreed his trillion and a half dollar tax cut. It used to be for things like NATO and the Marshall Plan and alliance building against the enemy. Now it’s lunch, communiques, and smiles and bromances with the enemy. One has to ask if it is still possible to ask, what will happen to all this heel-clicking when Trump’s gone? Will the party of Lincoln and Reagan be proud it knelt before Donald Trump’s altar? Whatever you want to say about Mark Sanford, who Trump’s people knocked off in yesterday’s primary, you feed to add this. At least when he embarrassed himself a few years back, at least the love was real. The Republicans now beckoning to Trump’s allure can’t even claim that.
