Former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters has been terminated by the German record label BMG. The collaboration between the musician and the company began in 2016 with the release of a new version of the classic 1973 album “Dark Side of the Moon,” but the initiative was abandoned after a change in the company’s leadership.
The news of the split between BMG and Waters was confirmed on Tuesday, 30, by the British newspaper “The Guardian.” The company is set to sever all ties with Waters completely, relinquishing one of the most lucrative music catalogs.
The Pink Floyd catalog is estimated to be worth around $500 million. The decision comes in response to Roger Waters’ anti-Semitic remarks, propagating speeches of prejudiced and xenophobic aversion against Jews.
The Guardian reported information from sources within BMG about the separation from the former Pink Floyd member:
“While Waters’ work with Pink Floyd is arguably one of the most significant and profitable catalogs of the rock era, his controversial political statements in recent years have likely shifted from anti-Zionism to anti-Semitism.”
In recent years, as he advocated for the Palestinian cause and supported a boycott of Israel, Roger Waters has faced accusations of anti-Semitism. Due to this, the artist’s shows in Germany were canceled.
As reported by TGP, well-known hotel chains in South America recently refused to host Waters in response to his anti-Semitic comments. At that time, the musician accused the Israeli government of committing “genocide” against the Palestinian people.
In addition to his extremist stance against Jews and the State of Israel, Waters has also supported Russia’s war. The musician sided with Russia and accused Ukraine of being responsible for the war.
Waters claimed that the invasion of the country in 2022 “was not provoked” and suggested that Ukraine had “given reasons” to be invaded.

Sonia Sotomayor, a liberal Supreme Court justice who was nominated to the court by Obama, said recently that the conservative wing of the court traumatizes her with their rulings.
Do you think Justice Clarence Thomas is traumatized when Democrats and the media accuse him of being a corrupt criminal? How about Justice Kavanaugh? Do you suppose he was traumatized when Democrats and the media accused him of being a rapist?
Does Justice Sotomayor even hear herself?
The Hill reported:
Sotomayor says she feels ‘frustration’ daily as conservative justices move US to right
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Monday she feels daily “frustration” as conservative justices move the country to the ideological right.
In an appearance at the University of California, Berkely School of Law, Sotomayor was asked how she copes with the consistently conservative rulings from the court.
“Every loss truly traumatizes me,” but “I get up the next morning,” she said in response to the question, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The crowd — about 1,300 students — applauded.
In her remarks, she criticized her “originalist colleagues” whom she said have come up with “new ways to interpret the Constitution,” changing rulings “that some of us believed were well established,” the Chronicle reported.
The 6-3 conservative court has had an eventful couple of terms, making its mark on some of the most consequential aspects of everyday life — from overturning the federal right to an abortion to ruling affirmative action in colleges unconstitutional.
If she wants to make policy, she’s in the wrong profession.
This is not what SCOTUS is supposed to do. If Sotomayor wanted to move the arc of the universe toward justice she should have run for office. https://t.co/fHKqVqfceF

She should resign and run for office if she wants to be a politician. That’s a different role than being a judge.

President Trump responded to speculation about the red marks seen on his hand earlier this month as he was headed to a Manhattan court.
Earlier this month Trump was photographed while he was on his way to a Manhattan court to attend a trial where the jury will decide how much he has to pay E. Jean Carroll for his so-called ‘defamatory’ statements about her.
The left-wing media freaked out over red marks on President Trump’s right hand.
It could have been red marker or blisters from playing golf, but miserable leftists like James Carville immediately claimed Trump has syphilis.

“They look like syphilis,” James Carville said of the red marks on Trump’s hands.
Carville claimed he asked several doctors (who never examined Trump) what the red marks could be and the answer was “immediate: secondary syphilis.”
Trump said maybe it was AI.
“Asked what had happened to the hand the former president said: ‘Nothing. Maybe it was AI.’” Trump said according to The Daily Mail.

Harvard has been bleeding financial support since October, when Ivy League students began campus demonstrations in support of Hamas.
One of their billionaire donors recently explained why he is no longer supporting the institution, calling out the school for its embrace of DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) policies.
Adding insult to injury, he called the students whiny snowflakes.
CNN actually covered this:
$500 million Harvard megadonor halts donations, says elite schools produce ‘whiny snowflakes’
Hedge fund billionaire Ken Griffin, who has donated more than $500 million to Harvard University over the years, has halted contributions to his alma mater and claimed elite schools produce “whiny snowflakes.”
Griffin, one of the richest people in the world, joins a growing list of donors to Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia and other top schools who have decided to close their checkbooks.
At a conference in Miami on Tuesday, Griffin expressed deep frustration with the state of American universities, including the disastrous testimony before Congress by the presidents of Harvard, MIT and UPenn.
Griffin, the founder of hedge fund Citadel, said he is no longer supporting Harvard financially but would like that to change.
“Until Harvard makes it very clear that they’re going to resume their role as [educators of] young American men and women to be leaders, to be problem solvers, to take on difficult issues, I am not interested in supporting the institution,” Griffin told CNBC’s Leslie Picker during the MFA Network Miami conference.

It really seems like the public has finally caught on to what a con and joke that higher education has become in recent years and it’s hitting schools where it hurts most. Right in the wallet.

A new Bloomberg/Morning Consult poll shows Donald Trump beating Joe Biden in the crucial swing states.
Is there any wonder why Biden is suddenly interested in the crisis at the border or why he is talking about visiting East Palestine, Ohio?
It’s likely because the 2024 election is less than a year away and Trump keeps beating him in the polls.
No Wonder Biden Is Finally Talking ‘Border Crisis’ – Check Out How Trump Is Crushing Him in the Polls
Have you wondered why Joe Biden took an Orwellian flip and was suddenly talking about the “border crisis” — something he and his administration have denied was a crisis for the past three years? And why he’s suddenly trying to blame the Republicans, who have been calling for action on the crisis all of that time?
Yes, it’s because of the election, but it’s also because the polls in the swing states show him getting crushed by former President Donald Trump — and specifically show him being crushed on that particular issue.
Check out this polling; it’s got to be shaking the Biden people up.
Not only is he now up in all seven swing states, he’s up by some big numbers in some of those states. Trump is up by eight in Nevada and 10 in North Carolina. Even stunningly up five in Michigan and eight in Georgia.
See the tweets below for the numbers:
2024 GE: Bloomberg/Morning Consult

So much of the 2024 election is going to come down to states in the rust belt like Michigan and Wisconsin. Same with Pennsylvania.
Trump is now leading in all of them, according to this poll.
