    Nugent Ousted From Fort Knox Concert Line-Up

    Nugent Ousted From Fort Knox Concert Line-Up

    Ted Nugent has been booted from the line-up at an annual Fort Knox summer concert following his recent comments about President Barack Obama, a Fort Knox representative confirmed to The Blaze.


    The decision to oust Nugent came after “recent disparaging remarks made against the commander in chief,” Ryan Brus of the Fort Knox public affairs office said.


    Because the concert is taking place on a military installation, it “would be a conflict of interest since the military has the obligation to be apolitical,” he said.


    Brus said they don‘t look at political or social views when booking performers but that Nugent’s comments about the commander in chief crossed the line.


    Brus said Major General Jefforey Smith, commanding general at Fort Knox, made the final decision to cancel Nugent’s appearance.


    Nugent was scheduled to be the June 23 concert’s opening act, according to the Louisville, Ky. Courier-Journal. Co-headliners REO Speedwagon and Styx remain scheduled to perform, according to a listing for the event on the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation website. The site says a “special guest” will be featured as well.


    Brus said they are working on finding a replacement for Nugent.

    Nugent said during an NRA convention last weekend that if the Obama is re-elected in November, “I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” His remarks prompted a visit from the Secret Service on Thursday, with a spokesman for the agency saying after the interview that “the issue has been resolved” and no further action is anticipated.


    Nugent said on Glenn Beck’s radio program Friday morning he was not yet aware of any cancellation, but said “there’s always that possibility.”

    Ted Nugent Agrees to Plead Guilty in Illegal Kill of Black Bear in Alaska

    Posted on April 21, 2012 at 5:29pm by Scott Baker



    (The Blaze/AP) — Rocker Ted Nugent has agreed to plead guilty to transporting a black bear he illegally killed in southeast Alaska back in May of 2009.


    As part of the plea deal, Nugent must pay a $10,000 fine, not hunt or fish within Alaska or on any other U.S. Forest Service lands for one year, record a Public Service Announcement, and serve two years probation.


    CNN reports that the public service announcement, “must be approved by federal prosecutors in Alaska, must be at least 30 to 60 seconds in length, and be broadcast every second week on his television show for one 12-month period.


    “This PSA will discuss the importance of a hunter’s responsibility in knowing the rules and regulations of the hunting activities that they engage in, which is subject to the review and final approval, prior to any broadcast, by a representative of the United States Attorney’s Office in the District of Alaska,” the agreement states.


    Nugent seemingly wounded a bear with a bow and arrow just days after bagging another bear, and Alaska law limits licensed hunters to one bear per hunting season.


    Nugent made the admission in signing a plea agreement with federal prosecutors that was filed Friday in U.S. District Court, soon after he was questioned and cleared by the Secret Service over comments that he would be “dead or in jail” if Obama got re-elected.




    However, Nugent’s attorney maintains that his client was unaware of the law– which was introduced less than five years ago. He says he even watched video of the shot, and the arrow supposedly only “touched” the bear before sinking into the ground.


    “There wasn’t any blood trail that they could find,” he said. “There was a little blood apparently at the spot, but nothing that indicated the bear was hard hit.”


    Nugent is seemingly in good spirits despite the controversy he has been involved in recently, saying his meeting with the Secret Service could not have gone better.


    “I thanked them for their service,” he said, “we shook hands and went about our business. God bless the good federal agents wherever they may be.”


    However, some are wondering why an offense from 2009 is being brought up at this particular time.


    Is it, some ask, part of a coordinated effort to silence the rock star? Or is it just coincidence?
