Children Need Protection. Childism Is The Opposite.

A random tweet on Tony’s twitter feed exposed Tony to a new concept called Childism, wherein so-called activists advocated for the rights of children to not be treated like children.

“I’ve noticed, way too many times, where adults think children should have agency. They think children should be able to make choices that no child can make.” says Tony. “That’s not helping children. That’s not advocating for children. That’s child abuse.”

Hear Tony’s take on the cultural breakdown that has led to adults failing to protect kids.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 18 – The Shutdown Continues, 27 Pounds of Mac and Cheese and April’s Tom Shilue Moment

The Shutdown continues, but what is it all about? Yes, it’s all about politics. But has America even answered the question of whether they want border security? Tony Katz hosts Eat! Drink! Smoke!

The Drink? Redbreast 12-year Irish Whiskey
The Smoke? La Flor Dominicana Ligero Lancero

Costco has a 27 pound tub of mac and cheese, and it’s sold out. The sheriff of Broward County, Scott Israel, is suspended by the governor of Florida. A guy tried to get out of a speeding ticket by blaming Motely Crue, and April shares her Tom Shilue moment.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Joining Tony are April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy.

QUICK HIT – Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal is Actually Really Dirty

Dem. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has the idea for a Green New Deal, in the mold of former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, that, in her words, will bring about racial and social justice.

But, as National Review’s Jim Geraghty points out, the “deal” cuts military spending in half and might put an end to non-electric cars.

Jim speaks to Tony Katz about the details, and how dirty this “green” deal really is.

Quick Hit – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez On Morality, Facts and How She Wants To Be Judged By You

On 60 Minutes, Dem Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told Anderson Cooper that more important than getting the facts right on policy, is that the policy is “morally correct.”

Tony Katz explains how Cortez has opened herself up to an entirely new line of questioning. “Rep. Cortez has done a great job of avoiding criticism and making those who attack her look bad.” says Tony. “But now, she’s let all that go. She doesn’t care about facts, which is exactly the argument progressives make about President Trump. And she has asked people to question whether, morally, her Socialist policies have value; people get to question her morality. I don’t think she realizes what she’s done here.”

Conservative, but not ‘pissed off,’ Indy radio host Tony Katz enters Lafayette market

LAFAYETTE, Ind. – When Tony Katz, at the time doing odd time slots from a home base in Los Angeles, lost a 2013 tryout at Indianapolis radio station WIBC to “The Chicks on the Right,” he said he struck a deal with the management that passed him up.

“I said, ‘Listen, I think we had a good relationship,’” Katz said last week. “‘You’ve got a 9 (p.m.) to midnight slot. Let me do that from Los Angeles, and I’ll do it free.’”

Eight months of that arrangement led to a morning shift on the news and talk station.

“Like I tell people,” Katz said, “now I live in America. … I’m thrilled to call Indianapolis home. I’m thrilled to be building the empire from right here.”

281 – So A Guy Got Locked In A Burger King Bathroom, It’s Now Speaker Pelosi and Apple Gets A Bite Taken Out Of It

With Democrats taking control of the House, the Night of 1000 Subpoenas is upon us. Tony Katz discusses what will happen, and why Speaker Pelosi has her hands full with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

And why is President Trump not aiming for the head of Senator Mitt Romney after his op-ed in the Washington Post?

A man got stuck in a Burger King bathroom for an hour, and was offered free food. Did he really think it would last for life? And Apple is seeing a massive slowdown in the purchase of iPhones.

280 – White Women Wish For Wokeness, LeBron the Activist has A Lot To Learn and Mitt Romney Swings Wildly At Trump

The Women’s March in Eureka, CA has been cancelled, because of too many white women. Tony Katz breaks down the progressive cannibalism that is the very concept of “wokeness.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is running for President. And Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s inauguration speech shows that he’s running as well. Unfortunately for him, the speech is just awful. Sen-Elect Mitt Romney takes President Trump’s character to task. Unfortunately for him, his Washington Post op-ed doesn’t do him any favors.

LeBron James may be the best basketball player in the world, and he might be the best who ever played the game. But activist LeBron James has a lot to learn.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size! – Do You Want Your Alcohol With Lemons, Oranges or Cherries, and Cruise Ships Aren’t For Everyone…Even If They Have Roller Coasters

April D. Gregory has found her new love, and it’s a cherry liqueur made by Hotel Tango Artisan Distillery in Indianapolis.

On this Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke!, Tony Katz has to contend with April and Fingers Malloy enjoying an entire bottle of the cherry love, while Hotel Tango owner Travis Barnes encourages them. As a veteran, he also has a great story of how his mom used to send him bourbon while he was serving in Iraq.

A new Carnival cruise ship has a roller coaster on it. Have we gone too far with our first-world entertainment? Either way, Fingers won’t go on a cruise ship, which he calls a “death trap.”

279 – Tucker Carlson Gets Boycotts Because Conservatives Do Nothing, and America Is Woke About Bigot Louis Farrakhan…Just Not Rep. Andre Carson

Tucker Carlson of FOX News is facing boycotts for comments about illegal immigrants; more than nine sponsors have left the show. When MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski used a gay slur to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, nothing happened. She gave a half-hearted apology, that didn’t include Sec. Pompeo, and all was forgotten and forgiven.

“Conservatives have to accept the fact that boycotts work.” says Tony Katz. “And if the politcal right isn’t willing to fight fire with fire, they’ll continue to lose the culture war. Boycotts are awful, but doing nothing is worse.”

Americans of all stripes understand that the Women’s March leaders are proudly connected to antisemite Louis Farrakhan. Yet, Democrat Rep. Andre Carson continues to support him.

278 – Mexico’s President Uses Dead Girl To Attack Trump Over Border, Obamacare Is Only Unconstitutional On Paper

A seven year-old girl died of dehydration at the US-Mexico border. Former Mexican President Vicente Fox blames President Trump. Tony Katz discusses the indecency of the anti-Trump crowd, that they will gladly use the death of children to move their anti-Trump agenda.

“Hate President Trump all you want.” says Tony. “But using a dead girl as your cover is obscene.”

MSNBC host Joy Reid has no time for a Biden/Beto ticket, because it’s too white. And too male. And too white and male. Obamacare has been ruled unconstitutional…yet nothing is going to change.
