Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 21 – Explaining The Whole Twisted Gov. Ralph Northam Story, $50,000 Bar Mitzvahs, Avo Cigars and Stagg Jr. Bourbon

It’s rare that we are recording the podcast as breaking news is happening, but that’s how it went this week as the Saga of Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam was unfolding as we were recording.

A photo of a man in blackface standing next to a person in a KKK robe was discovered on Northam’s medical school yearbook page. At first Northam admitted to taking the photo. The next day, he said it wasn’t him. And, while we were recording, Gov. Northam was holding a press conference to profess his innocence…while admitting to doing blackface another time in his life!

As Tony Katz notes, the photo is unacceptable. But why is this the story, as opposed to Gov. Northam’s acceptance and support of infanticide?

It’s a busy Eat! Drink! Smoke!, recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis. Tony, joined by April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy, review Stagg Jr. bourbon and the Avo Classic cigar.

When you go out to eat, do you do it for the food or for the experience? And why spend $50,000 on a bar mitzvah?

The differences between Baby Boomers, Gen X and Millennials became most obvious at a recent Fleetwood Mac concert.

Media Would Rather Attack Children Than Apologize

The Covington Catholic students have been attacked relentlessly. So-called “journalists,” media commentators and elected officials – never mind the rabid throngs on social media – have unloaded vicious and violent sentiments towards these kids.

Tony Katz thinks its important to remember that they are kids.

“When kids were murdered in Parkland, FL, and the high-profile students became cable news fixtures, I reminded people that you may disagree with what they are saying, about guns and the Second Amendment,” says Tony. “But they are kids. Remember that.”

“Yet, when it comes to Covington Catholic students, media professionals and elected officials seem to think they are fair game for violence and vitriol based on lies. They’re not. It’s just wrong, and they’re wrong.”

Tony Katz Hits Obama’s Big Three on Immigration – Dishonesty, Hypocrisy and Racism

WIBC morning radio host Tony Katz exposes three major failings in President Obama’s announcement of his executive action on immigration.

Lawsuits are being threatened, and funding will most likely be curtailed by the incoming Congress. Without much doubt, the GOP controlled House and Senate will continue to find ways to keep Obama’s lawlessness in check.

But the speech was stunning not just in its lawlessness, but in how openly and how brazenly the President abhors the impediment to his desires. In this case, that impediment is the United States Constitution. President Obama finds dishonesty, hypocrisy and racism more than acceptable in moving his ideology right over the stumbling block of the constitution.

Tony can be heard Monday through Friday, 5am ET, on 93.1FM WIBC and WIBC.com.

The Rush To Race Is Ridiculous

Over the weekend, businessman and presidential candidate Herman Cain won the Florida Straw Poll with a very convincing 37% of the vote.  He more than doubled his nearest challenger, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and third place finisher, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

Quickly, blog posts and opinion makers took to social media and blogs, pushing their view of what this victory means.  Among much of the commentary, the idea of race has come in to play.  That the victory of Cain in the straw poll shows that the GOP, and the Tea Party, are not the racists that the hard-core Leftist Progressives claim those groups to be.

Wrong.  Is the establishment GOP really that interested in proving to a hate-filled Progressive minority that they are good people who should be liked?  Are there members of the Tea Party who actually believe that Sen. Boxer, Sen. Schumer, Michael Moore, Janeane Garofalo, Rep. Frank or others will like them because they voted for a black man?

Does anyone except the most virulent liberal think that Cain won the straw poll because of race?

Cain’s strong win in the straw poll is not about race, it’s about Cain!  His “999” Plan has taken hold. People now know that Cain is serious about reducing taxes. They see this in the shadow of President Obama’s $1.5 Trillion tax increase, and see that there is another option.  People have been leery – disgusted! – with Obamacare.  They have heard all the talk about the need to repeal, or at the very least, to defund.  But, with Cain, they have heard what could be their fate under Obamacare.  The personal story of Cain’s fight with Stage 4 colon cancer hit home with voters. They now have a clear picture of the life that their family will have under socialized medicine.  Cain is alive because of an unencumbured health care system, where patients and doctors work towards success.  Cain would be dead under Obamacare.  That message has also taken hold with the American electorate.

There have been some who have used Cain’s victory to combat the ignorant words of actor Morgan Freeman.  On Piers Morgan’s show on CNN, Morgan stated:

FREEMAN: Look at, look, the Tea Partiers…Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? “Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here”

(PIERS) MORGAN: But is that necessarily a racist thing?

FREEMAN: It is a racist thing.

Why would anyone think it necessary to vindicate themselves from the words of Freeman, who did nothing more than reiterate the tired Racer meme popularized by Garofalo and Keith Olbermann? When Cain was asked for his response to Freeman, Cain didn’t point to himself.  He pointed to the problem with Morgan’s statement:

“Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Partiers about having a racist element, they have never been to a Tea Party…Name calling is something that is going to continue in this because they don’t know how to stop this movement and this movement is making a big difference in politics…”

Cain didn’t mention his race.  He didn’t mention being black.  He didn’t mention his skin color.  Cain did what Cain does: He focused on the statement, gave the much needed, honest answer and moved on.

It is this approach that is attracting more and more people to Cain.  He’s not giving excuses, he’s presenting a plan.  He admits his mistakes, talks about what he is learning and focuses on giving America a clear set of rules, policies and procedures.  Cain does what Obama can not; walking the walk after talking the talk.

If there is anything to take from Cain’s impressive victory in the Florida Straw Poll, its that the mainstream media will not be deciding who the GOP candidate is.  The idea that America’s choices are reduced to Mitt Romney or Rick Perry are over.  Herman Cain has joined the top tier, and he got there with hard work, an engaging personality and a great message.  How long he stays there is up to Cain and America, not the MSM.

Race-ers exposed on MSNBC

Recently, I appeared on MSNBC with Contessa Brewer to discuss President Obama, Donald Trump, the birth certificate and the political fall-out.  In the conversation, the leftist meme came forth about those who question the President, on anything, are actually racists.  My response was simple – if those who are consumed with Obama’s birthplace are “birthers,” then those consumed with unfounded and uninspired conspiracy theories that all Obama opponents are racists should be called “Race-ers.”

Watch the video for yourself:

This term, whether spelled “Race-ers,” “racers,” “raceer,” or “raceers” is being embraced in all corners. John Nolte of Big Hollywood is now using it in his posts, Newsbusters highlighted it while saying “Bravo, Tony. Bravo!”  Lucianne.com has posted it, and Pajamas Media has released articles here, here and here on the subject. (Full Disclosure – I host a weekly show on PJTV.com and my articles have been published by Pajamas Media.)

The leftist, Progressive narrative of race is over.  Feel free to speak freely about Obama’s policies, and his results.
