Where’s The Revolution?!

Depeche Mode visited Hollywood last week for an amazing four nights, and The Hollywood Sentinel was there.  Check out our review in Music’s Greatest here inside.

Hello! And welcome to the new issue of The Hollywood Sentinel. The Hollywood Sentinel is unique in that publishes ONLY the good news. That also means, unlike some publications that tried copying  us by stating that they report only the good news too–we do not run ads for destructive diet pills, plastic surgery, or toxic food and bad lifestyles. Not only that, we advance culture in Hollywood and throughout the world, by teaching people and reminding those that know, that “What we put our attention on, generally happens.”  And that “like attracts like,” and–that we are spiritual beings, having a human experience.

We also give free, massively valuable education on How to Succeed in Hollywood, from a good, moral, positive perspective, without compromising one’s honesty or integrity.   And, more importantly, we give free advice on How to Keep Kids Safe in Hollywood and the entertainment industry, not only helping their parents to avoid getting ripped off, but most essentially, helping to keep them free from abuse.

We invite you to sit down with us here on your phone, on your tablet or computer, and get to know us a bit, or–if you have already read us before, look at the new and old content.  Explore each unique page by clicking on the table of contents tab to the left, or scrolling down. And if there is something you would like to read but don’t see here in our pages, be sure to let us know.  You can even go ‘way’ back and explore our older Archives section at www.thehollywoodsentinel.com that will give you hours of reading and educational enjoyment–straight from those that are not only huge fans of all areas of the arts including Hollywood, but are also, working professionals in this land that so many from all the world over dream of.

The Hollywood Sentinel is also e-mailed directly to the office of every star in its pages.  We have been told by strangers from around the world, dreaming of Hollywood, that it has helped them greatly–taught them what they wanted to know, and gave them hope.  We have also been told by many of the rich or famous, how they love it, and thanking us for what we create and the service we provide. We hope this continues to be the situation for many.  We hope this is true for you.  We are here to give back–we are here to help and entertain, and we are here because we love what we do, and we hope it shows. Enjoy the new issue.

Presidential Pardons

This month,  273 individuals learned that the President has given them a second chance. With the recent 209 grants of commutation, the President has now commuted the sentences of 1,385 individuals – the most grants of commutation issued by any President in this nation’s history.  President Obama’s 1,385 commutation grants – which includes 504 life sentences – is also more than the total number of commutations issued by the past 12 presidents combined.

January 2017 

17th, Tuesday: It was announced that President Obama has commuted the sentence of Chelsea Elizabeth Manning.

18th, Wednesday, further reports will be given regarding Chelsea’s commutation, who is now reportedly set to be released early this spring. Many hope for similar treatment of Assange and others.  Wikileaks Julian Assange formerly offered to turn himself over to the U.S. should Obama pardon Manning, which he Obama has now done.

19th, Thursday: President Obama will attend meetings at the White House.

Transition of Power

20th, Friday:  On Friday morning, President Obama and the First Lady will welcome President-elect Trump and Melania Trump to the White House for tea and a small reception.  Then, per custom, President Obama and President-elect Trump will motorcade up to the United States Capitol together.

Anti-Trump supporters will reportedly be attempting to disrupt events. Massive security will be out in full swing.

The President and First Lady will attend the inaugural swearing-in and inaugural address of President-elect Trump, and then depart the United States Capitol via helicopter, as other Presidents have done in recent years.

At that point, President Obama and the First Lady will proceed to Joint Base Andrews, where he will deliver remarks to a group of staff that will be gathered there to bid farewell.  And then he and Mrs. Obama will depart Joint Base Andrews on their last flight aboard the presidential aircraft to a destination to be announced.

28th: Chinese New Year
