KIM DAVIS, MIKE HUCKABEE TURN TO KICKSTARTER TO RAISE $1.2 MILLION

CaptureSALISBURY, North Carolina (The Adobo Chronicles®) — The band Survivor has filed a $1.2 million lawsuit against Kim Davis and Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee over the unauthorized use of its hit song “Eye of the Tiger.”

Davis, the Rowan County clerk who was jailed after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, was released Tuesday morning, after serving six days in prison, to the sound of Survivor’s classic song “Eye of the Tiger.” The theme song from the movie “Rocky III” played in the background as she, her husband, and Mike Huckabee celebrated her freedom in front of cheering supporters.

The lawsuit is just one more problem for Davis, but a much bigger one for the former Arkansas governor in as far as his presidential campaign is concerneed. Huckabee is not only doing poorly in the polls but in campaign fundraising as well.  This past quarter, he reported raising only $2 million, which could be instantly wiped out if the lawsuit against him and Davis succeeds.

So today, Huckabee and Davis turned to the Internet crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to help them raise the $1.2 million they would need if the judgment goes against them in the Survivor lawsuit.

On Tuesday, Huckabee said he was willing to go to jail in Davis’ place.

Maybe, he will. And for sure, Davis will gladly join him.

 

BREAKING: KIM DAVIS MAY BE BACK IN JAIL SOON!

imageHOLLYWOOD, Calfornia  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – She may just have been released from county jail, but Kim Davis, the Rowan County clerk who defied a Supreme Court ruling asking her to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, could end up back behind bars.

To celebrate her release after six hard days in prison, Davis held a press conference with Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. At the press conference, Davis cried and waved to the crowd,  the crowd cheered and waved cardboard crosses, and the rock band Survivor tune ‘Eye of the Tiger’  played in the background, just like in the movie, ‘Rocky III.’

But the band said it didn’t give Davis permission to use the song. “NO! We did not grant Kim Davis any rights to use ‘My Tune -The Eye Of The Tiger,’” the song’s co-writer, Frank Sullivan said on the band’s Facebook page. “I would not grant her the rights to use Charmin! C’mom Mike, you are not The Donald but you can do better than that -See Ya really SoooooooonnnnnnN!!!!!!,” the post added.

And so the ‘Rocky’ saga continues for Davis, in court.

If convicted for unauthorized  public performance of a copyrighted  material, she could face a homecoming in county jail, perhaps, along with Huckabee.

1982 BILLBOARD HIT ‘EYE OF THE TIGER’ BACK ON TOP OF THE CHARTS, THANKS TO KIM DAVIS

Eye_of_the_Tiger_SurvivorAfter 33 years, a 1982 number one hit song is back on the top of the Billboard chart, thanks to Rowan County clerk Kim Davis who was released  today after spending the long weekend behind bars for defying a Supreme Court order for her to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The song, “Eye of the Tiger” by American rock band Survivor was released in the spring of 1982 and was written at the request of actor Sylvester Stallone to be the theme song for the movie “Rocky III.”  It was written by Frank Sullivan and Jim Peterik.

As Davis, accompanied by Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee,  emerged from country jail, she was met by a cheering crowd of self-proclaimed Christians.  The song “Eye of the Tiger” was blasting in the background.

It wasn’t clear whose decision it was to play the song, but we can understand why, just by some of the song’s lyrics:

Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance
Now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

With her defiance, Davis is really some kind of tiger!
