Matt Gaetz doesn’t think he’s getting due thanks for helping Britney Spears

Yesterday, a Los Angeles judge suspended Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, from his role in the singer’s ongoing conservatorship.

It’s the latest step in Britney’s attempts to end the legal arrangement that has controlled her life for the past 13 years.

Another hearing has been scheduled for November 12 which could see the conservatorship terminated completely.

Who should take credit for helping to extricate Britney for her guardianship? Well, Florida rep. Matt Gaetz would like to remind everyone that he’s been 100% behind Britney all the way.

Yesterday, the Twitter account of a right-wing, Florida-based political rally, AmpFest, tweeted: “Great news! Jamie Spears suspended from @britneyspears’s conservatorship. #FreeBritney movement scored a strategic win today. When will the media and pop-culture gatekeepers thank @mattgaetz for drawing attention to this injustice?”

Gaetz himself was quick the re-tweet that message to the 1.1million people who follow his personal Twitter account.

Back in March, Gaetz told Newsmax that as a “Millennial and a huge Britney Spears fan,” he felt compelled to highlight her plight. On Twitter, he urged his followers to call Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, who serves as Chair of the House Judiciary, to tell him to #FreeBritney.

He also sent a letter to Britney inviting her to speak to Congress about the issue of conservatorships (she did not take him up on the offer) and posted several tweets attacking her father, Jamie Spears.

At the same time, fans of the singer have been waging a #FreeBritney campaign in recent years, concerned that she did not have control over her own life and finances.

Until recently, Britney herself declined to publicly criticize the arrangement, but that has all changed in recent months. Yesterday’s decision comes three months after the singer pleaded with the court to remove her father.

This year, Britney was allowed to appoint her own attorney, who has been fighting on her behalf to make this happen. There have been also been two high-profile documentaries that have also highlighted her situation, alongside masses of media coverage.

In short, it’s highly likely that Britney would be winning her legal battles with or without Gaetz’s minor contribution: a point many on Twitter were quick to highlight.

Besides hyping up his role in the #FreeBritney movement, Gaetz had a busy day yesterday. He put on a big show of attempting to grill the military’s top advisers when they appeared before a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee.

Gaetz attempted to take Gen Mark Milley, Gen Frank McKenzie and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to task over the Afghanistan withdrawal: “If we didn’t have a president that was so addled, you all would be fired, because that is what you deserve.”

He also waved a copy of the book Peril, by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, in Milley’s face, saying, “You spent more time with Bob Woodward on this book than you spent analyzing the very likely prospect that the Afghanistan government was very likely to fall.”

Milley’s corrected him, saying, “not even close.” Regardless, Gaetz spent much of the afternoon retweeting messages congratulating himself on his performance.

Powerful Bishop Calls Out Catholic Church. Says Ban on the Blessing LGBTQ Couples Was Met With “Indignation…Head Shaking … Open Resistance”; And More

Overall, the top German Bishop calls it a “fundamental breakdown in trust toward the church.” In addition to the ban on the blessing LGBTQ couples, he noted the Churches non participation in abuse allegations and legal actions; the Church refusal to cancel Easter services, when even Christian parties were part of the call.

The president of the German Bishops’ Conference, Georg Bätzing, has admitted a “fundamental breakdown in trust towards the Church.”

In a strikingly self-critical address to about 200 guests from the Church, politics and society at the annual reception of the Catholic Office in Berlin, Bätzing said on Monday that the abuse scandal had led to a profound loss of trust.

“Withheld testimonies and reluctance to step in reinforce this development and lead to long waiting times for people wanting to leave,” the bishop said.

Bätzing was alluding to Cologne Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, who withheld an expert opinion on how to deal with abuse allegations due of legal concerns.

Bätzing said that the Vatican’s recent renewed ban on the blessing of same sex couples had also caused “indignation and head-shaking.” Open resistance to the directive from Rome had been the result, illustrating the “inner turmoil of the Catholic Church” for all to see.

As in so many areas of society, the coronavirus crisis had poured oil on the flames and accelerated developments, he said.

The Church’s loss of status had become openly apparent during the pandemic, Bätzing said, citing the fact that even Christian parties had joined calls for the Church to cancel Easter services last spring.

The already noticeable decline in church tax revenues would be compounded by knock-on effects of the pandemic, which will necessitate painful cost-cutting measures.

Bethenny Frankel is Begging For Some Andy Cohen Gay Influence (Her Former Boss) To Save Her Show After Transphobic Remarks

No word yet on whether she is going to be able to leverage some of that Andy Cohen gay influence and celebrity to catch her fall.

 

Published by
Radar Online

 

Former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel is fighting for her life to save her controversial podcast, Just B after broadcasting “transphobic” comments.

“Bethenny has reached out to her old boss Andy Cohen to help save her show. Andy is a major influencer in the LGTBQ community and Bethenny thinks that if he comes out and supports her, others in the community will follow too,” sources tell Radar.

“However, so far Andy has said nothing.”

Frankel got herself in hot water again after talking about pronouns, gender identity, and her 11-year-old daughter, Bryn. Before implying that she would not want her daughter to sleep in the same bunk at a summer camp with a transgender girl.

Previously, Frankel has suggested that identity could be a “phase.”

“The folks at iHeart are appalled. The company is built on a promise of respect and inclusion for everyone. They even have huge quotes about the beliefs and values of the company printed on with massive letters in the reception area,” adds a company insider.

“iHeart took a gamble on Bethenny after passing on several other Real Housewives podcasts. These women have been rewarded for bad behavior for years. Being controversial wrapped in ‘saying it as it is,’ is part of every reality stars’ DNA. However, what works for Bravo doesn’t work for iHeart. Bethenny will be lucky if she survives this. At this point, she is going to need more than Andy Cohen to save her job,” our source added.

As Radar previously reported, Bethenny is also trading jabs with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne.

Earlier this month, Frankel claimed Jayne’s estranged husband Tom Girardi owed her late ex, Dennis Shields, $500,000. On her podcast, she said, “My experience is, especially with the ‘Housewives’ … if someone’s flaunting their money, they don’t really have it.”

Shields reportedly told her Girardi owed him “half a million dollars.” She claimed her ex said. “I know this other guy he owes a million and a half dollars. He doesn’t have money. He owes everybody money.”

Jayne’s attorney fired back at the claims. He told Page Six, “Erika has no knowledge of the alleged loans or the conversations referred to by Ms. Frankel, which even per Ms. Frankel, didn’t involve Erika.”
