Tony Katz speaks with CBS News Radio Military Analyst Maj. Mike Lyons about French President Emannuelle Macron’s statement regarding a military force for Europe.

Griff Jenkins of FOX News reports from Broward County, FL about the recounts underway in the Governor, Senate and Agriculture Secretary races.

264 – Is It Fraud In the Florida Recount Or Something Else? Big Tax Returns Set For 2019 and Nancy Pelosi Wants Your Pew! Pew! Pew!

Law professor Jon Eastman discusses the Florida recount with Tony Katz. Is it on the up and up, or is there nefarious activity taking place?

Experts say 2019 is going to be a year of big tax refunds. What is Producer Ari going to spend it on? (And all the credit to comic Gary Gulman for the “holiday sauce” reference. You’ll hear it.)

Tony also has a recap on CNN’s Jim Acosta, and the Democrats have guns in their sights.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 11 – Pete Davidson Apologizes To Dan Crenshaw and Rep. Nancy Pelosi wants your guns. A review of the Four Kicks Limited Edition cigar and Col. E.H. Taylor bourbon

Eat! Drink! Smoke! is all new! It’s the weekly review of bourbon, cigars and great food mixed with conversation of the news and culture of the day with radio host and entertainer Tony Katz.

THIS WEEK’S REVIEWS
The Drink? – Col. E.H. Taylor Bourbon
The Smoke? – Four Kicks Limited Edition

Last week, SNL’s Pete Davidson was a tool. This week, he’s apologizing to Congressman-Elect Dan Crenshaw. Did SNL get the apology right?

Rep. Nancy Pelosi might get the Speaker’s gavel again, and she says gun control is her first priority. Does that also mean that babies with fake guns can not be photographed? What do we mean? Listen, and try to keep your jaw off the floor.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Joining Tony are radio host Fingers Malloy and social media maven and podcaster April D. Gregory.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size Edition! – Fingers Malloy Will Officiate Your Wedding But Only If You Serve Chick-fil-A Mac & Cheese

On this Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke!, Tony Katz talks with Fingers Malloy and April D. Gregory about a woman who sues a doctor who wasn’t actually a medical doctor. Tony questions the very idea of licensing; Does anyone else find it strange that we give up our rights to government, and then buy them back?

Also, Chick-fil-A remains the leader of the quick-service food world with the possible addition of mac & cheese to their already perfect menu line-up.

And why does everyone freak out about Daylight Saving Time?

A bar in Thousand Oaks, CA was attacked by a former Marine with apparent mental issues. 12 people were killed, and the attacker took his own life.

Tyler Spady, 22, was at the Borderline Bar and Grill when it happened, and told Tony Katz what he saw – including seeing the attacker turn his direction to fire his weapon – and how he and others escaped.

262 – One Day From Election Day, And No One Knows What Will Happen At All. Pete Davidson is a tool.

Tony Katz is thrilled that Election Day is one day away. He takes a look at some of the polling data, and realizes that no one knows what the hell they are talking about.

Corruption exists in government, but some of the examples out of Oregon are downright disgusting! Speaking of disgusting, Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live makes fun of congressional candidate Daniel Crenshaw, who lost an eye during a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

***NOTETony accidentally said Crenshaw was a Marine. Crenshaw was a Navy SEAL. The insignia on his glass eye is the SEAL Trident. Apologies for the error.***

Eat! Drink! Smoke! Episode 10 – Defend Yourself Is A Message From Pittsburgh, They Lied About Kavanaugh and Pete Davidson Is A Tool. Plus, Blanton’s Bourbon and The Avo Lounge

It’s an all new Eat! Drink! Smoke!, a review of bourbon, cigars and great food mixed with some conversation of the news and culture of the day with radio host and entertainer Tony Katz.

THIS WEEK’S REVIEWS
The Drink? – Blanton’s Bourbon Single Barrell
The Smoke? – Avo Lounge

Can we all agree that SNL’s Pete Davidson is a tool, right? But can we all agree that the idea of “believe all women” falls apart when you learn of a woman who lied about SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh; she claimed he raped her. She made it up. And what are the lessons of Pittsburgh? Well, defending yourself is one of them.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Joining Tony are radio host Fingers Malloy and social media maven and podcaster April D. Gregory.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size Edition! – The Taco Cleanse and The Lemonade Cleanse…Which Are Both Real Things

The Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke!  Tony Katz speaks with Fingers Malloy and April D. Gregory about the taco cleanse….which is a very real thing.

But it’s nothing compared to the lemonade cleanse, which involves drinking and eating nothing but lemonade made with maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Both Fingers and April have done it, and they say it really works.

And that you should definitely keep a bathroom nearby. Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis.

261 – Dana Perino of Fox News Joins Tony in-Studio To Talk Midterms and Civility, Rep. Mark Meadows Explains Why Sen. Joe Donnelly Was Wrong On The Iran Deal

Tony Katz speaks with FOX News host and former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, in studio, about the midterms and how she views the relationship between the press and current Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC 11) calls in to talk about congressional priorities, how the US will deal with Saudi Arabia and whether Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly was right to side with the Iran Nuclear Deal.

260 – One Week From The Midterms, Here’s The Roundup. Sarah Huckabee Sanders Holds Strong And Did Trump Just Say Birthright Citizenship?

The Midterms are a week away; who will win control? Well, according to Tony Katz, no one knows. It looks like the Republicans will keep the Senate, but the House is up for grabs. Perhaps the Kavanaugh Effect has worn off. Perhaps, with early voting, it was enough to hand Republicans control through 2020.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responds firmly to ABC’s Jon Karl and CNN’s Jim Acosta and their accusation that President Trump has not said/done enough after the murder of eleven people in Pittsburgh by an anti-Semite.

And what’s all this about birthright citizenship? And what’s all this about a rise in anti-Semitism in the US?
