QUICK HIT – Church-going Americans Should Be Prepared To Live or Be Prepared To Die

Tony Katz discusses the story of a man in Toledo, Ohio who was arrested for plotting to attack at least one synagogue in the name of ISIS.

It’s not lost on Tony that this comes just over a month after the murder of 11 Jews at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. And it’s also not lost on Tony that far too many Jews, and people of faith, fail to recognize the importance of protecting themselves while they worship.

“You need to be prepared to live,” says Tony. “Otherwise, you’re just prepared to die. And that’s no way to live.”

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 15 – Antelope Sliders and West Fork Bourbon, Kevin Hart’s Non-Apology To The Oscars and Baby It’s Cold Outside

Tony Katz thinks Kevin Hart did the right thing by walking away from the Oscars. “He’s gonna make movies and make millions! Who needs the headache from the same self-righteous Hollywood that will gladly give Harvey Weinstein his career back…and you know they will!”

This is just part of this week’s episode Eat! Drink! Smoke!

THE EAT – Antelope Sliders
THE DRINK – West Fork Whiskey’s B-Street Blues Bourbon
THE SMOKE – Arturo Fuente Short Story 

 

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, is why everyone hates politics and politicians. He used his position to grab some extra cash, to the tune of $4 million. He’s going to jail, and so should a bunch of other people.

And Baby, It’s Cold Outside is not a rape song. It’s just not.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded live at The Antelope Club in Indianapolis, IN. Tony is joined by April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy.

276 – VICE Proves Media Doesn’t Love Bush and Lena Dunham Lied About Rape, Blames Men For Making Her Do It

The movie VICE, about Vice-President Dick Cheney, received multiple Golden Globe nominations. It also portrays VP Cheney as a monster and President George W. Bush as a fool. As Tony Katz notes, this is how you know that all the love given by media towards the late President George H.W. Bush is, unfortunately, affect and not affection.

Lena Dunham is a liar. A male friend was accused of rape, and she claimed that she had intimate knowledge of the event and her friend, Murray Miller, was innocent. Today, she wrote in Hollywood Reporter that she lied; she never had any information, and she chose to believe her friend.

Then, Dunham blames men for making her lie. Tony’s commentary is a must-hear.

QUICK HIT – Barbra Streisand Says GOP Women Are Stupid, Vote The Way Their Husbands Tell Them To. She Also Stole Lyrics From Midnight Oil!

Tony Katz shares the story of singer and well-known leftist Barbra Streisand, who parroted former Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s refrain that Republican women vote the way their husbands or boyfriends tell them to. Streisand went a step further, arguing that GOP women were scared of Clinton’s qualifications.

Also interesting? In one of Streisand’s new songs – written to protest President Donald Trump – it sounds like her lyrics were taken directly from the Midnight Oil song, “Beds Are Burning.” Is she a thief? You decide.
