The Dodgers And Their Friends Are Sick, Disgusting!

I've NEVER liked the Dogers -- not now, not ever. 
In fact, I didn't even like them when they were in Brooklyn. 
And that was a LONG time ago. 
But I like them even less now -- and for different, more serious reasons. 
The Dodgers ought to be ashamed of themselves, But the organization apparently has no shame. If the Dodgers come to play baseball in or near your town, boycott them. 
And call the Dodgers at one of these numbers to Let your voice be heard:

Where Their Heroism And Sacrifice Triumphed!



79 years after D Day, this is where one of the greatest triumphs in all of civilizations began. 
Here, on the beaches of Normandy, brave men not only stared down evil, they annihilated it.
We took these photos several years ago when we visited the beaches --  a chilly, damp, overcast day. And there we also walked among the graves of the fallen.
Forever in our hearts!

Drag Show Brazenly Pitches To Kids, Teens!

A friend from Rahway, NJ writes as follows:

I know we all different opinions and beliefs. The one thing in common is that we're parents. This event is targeting children, promoted as family friendly, and offers free HIV testing. What in God's name is going on right here in our front yard? We gotta push back. Let parents know what's going on. Some may not have a problem. Many will be silent out of fear. But this is the continued exposure and overt sexualization of our kids. It has to stop. This is isn't about a disagreement our debate about lifestyles or values. It is about destroying the family and targeting our children.
Spread the word.

And Now A Very Special Thought For Today . . .


Sign The Dodger Boycott Petition NOW!


A very special message from catholicvote.org:


I just realized something significant —


The Dodgers “Pride” night will take place on June 16.


Just an ordinary June day? Nope.


It is the Feast of the Sacred Heart.


For faithful Catholics, the month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. And June 16 is not just an ordinary feast day. It is a Solemnity. 


But to the secular world… today marks the beginning of “Pride Month.”


I fully expect the next 30 days to feature some of the most grotesque displays of homosexual perversion and transgender mutilation in American history.


The radical LGBT movement is already pushing boundaries beyond anything imaginable – even just a few months ago.


Case in point: 


The LA Dodgers are REFUSING to budge even an inch about honoring the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” the most disgusting anti-Catholic hate group I’ve ever heard of.


As I wrote yesterday, I talked this week with a top Dodgers executive about their decision to honor these cross-dressing men who mock our Lord, our Lady, and our Church.


His message: we have no plans to change course.


My message: full speed ahead with our boycott and ad campaign!


Chip in here.


The Dodgers are throwing faithful Catholics like you and me under the bus. 


Daniel, that means our boycott and $1 million ad campaign are now more important than ever.


I’m asking you to please sign our Boycott Petition today – even if you don’t watch baseball.


The Dodgers need to know they’re losing all business from tens of thousands of Americans.


We have over 30,000 petition signatures so far.


Will you help us double that number in the next 24 hours?


We only have two weeks left until the Dodgers give center stage at Dodger Stadium to the fake “sisters.” 


…on the Feast of the Sacred Heart. 


Daniel, I know you’ve already done so much to help stand up to the Dodgers and their blasphemous fake “nuns,” but I could really use your help again on this boycott effort.


Please click here to add your name to our Boycott Petition today.


Thank you in advance for signing.


And thank you for your support over the last 10 days since CatholicVote first broke this story.



Brian Birch. President, Catholic Vote

P.S. Remember: this isn’t just about the Dodgers. 


It’s about whether or not we lose our entire nation to the woke mob that celebrates sexual sin by mocking all that is holy. 


Please sign our Boycott Petition today to stand up for what we believe.


Dodger Pitcher Blasts Anti-Catholic Dodgers!


Ban Books? Nah! They Just Want Parental Rights!

New Jersey State Senator Michael Testa and Senator Ed Durr said that despite fearmongering from Governor Phil Murphy and Trenton Democrats, nobody is looking to ban books of any kind.

“It’s a total misrepresentation for Democrats to say that parents are looking to ‘ban books’ simply for expressing their concerns about the unrestricted availability of content that’s not age-appropriate in their school libraries,'” said Durr (R-3). “Nobody is looking to stop adults from buying these books or suggesting that parents shouldn’t be able to provide them to their children at their discretion. Any suggestion by Governor Murphy or Trenton Democrats that children’s access to books in school libraries has to be all or nothing is just fearmongering of the worst kind. We believe there are workable solutions that could address the concerns of parents and ensure continued access to books with sexual content with reasonable restrictions.”

The senators noted that age-based rating systems have long been used to limit children’s access to movies and video games that are not age-appropriate.

They are drafting legislation that would require a similar rating system to be implemented for books in school libraries.

“Kids can’t go to an R-rated movie or buy an M-rated video game without parental consent,” said Testa (R-1). “There’s no reason we can’t apply similar age-based restrictions to books in school libraries that contain sexually explicit images or adult themes. We should let parents decide which ratings are appropriate for their children. It’s a reasonable solution that I suspect Democrats will reject.”

And THIS Is Just The Beginning . . . .


Testa: Let's Help Towns End Teen Mayhem!

New Jersey State Senator Michael Testa is calling on the New Jersey Legislature to approve criminal justice reform bills that would help towns to reverse a trend of lawlessness by drunk and rowdy teenagers. His comments followed a weekend of chaos in several Shore communities, including Ocean City, which adopted strict new beach and boardwalk restrictions to try to maintain law and order.

“The lawlessness that I saw play out in our Shore towns over Memorial Day weekend was shocking. Large crowds and pop-up parties continue to cause damage to local communities and it will only get worse as summer approaches,” said Testa (R-1). “Underage drinking, vandalism, and drug use were all on display with very little consequences to those in attendance. Residents and tourists fear for their safety and business owners will suffer the consequences unless the Legislature and the Governor step up and address this issue head on.”

On Thursday, Ocean City passed an emergency public safety ordinance after police say they responded to nearly 1,000 incidents during the Memorial Day weekend ranging from underage drinking and vandalism to assault. Under the new rules, beaches will close at 8 p.m. and boardwalk bathrooms will close at 10 p.m. Additionally, carrying backpacks will not be permitted after 8 p.m. on both the beach and the boardwalk and an 11 p.m. curfew will be put in place for minors.

After the emergency ordinance was adopted, Testa joined the mayor and police chief on the city’s boardwalk for a press conference to lend his support and call for legislative action.

Testa sponsors a number of criminal justice reform bills that would help address many of the problems that Shore communities are experiencing, including:

  • S-642, removes criminal liability for law enforcement officers who have an investigative encounter with an underage person for possession of alcohol or cannabis unless civil rights are violated;
  • S-1206, enhances penalties for certain crimes committed during riots and creates new crimes of mob intimidation and cyber-intimidation by publication;
  • S-3622, allows municipality to establish alcohol-free and cannabis-free areas and to impose civil penalties for violations;
  • SR-113, urges the Governor and the Attorney General to provide assistance to municipalities in response to unpermitted mass gatherings and pop-up parties in New Jersey;
  • S-3398, permits designation of special event zones for traffic regulation purposes during certain large events. The impetus for this bill arose from the unsanctioned H2Oi car rally in Wildwood last September which killed 2 people and injured several others; and
  • SCR-20, amends Constitution to dedicate money credited to the “9-1-1 System and Emergency Response Trust Fund Account” to maintain 9-1-1 system and emergency response.

“The Murphy administration’s continued inaction in helping Shore towns respond to pop-up parties is disturbing,” said Testa. “I fully support Ocean City’s efforts, but there aren’t many small towns that can maintain public safety and effectively protect their communities when thousands of rowdy people suddenly show up with little or no warning. New Jerseyans are tired of the Governor kicking the can down the road. It’s time for the Legislature to act like the co-equal branch of government that it is and pass sweeping new public safety reforms to protect our Shore communities.”

What The Hell's Happening To Philly Talk Radio?

Photo by Rod Flores on Unsplash.
Philly talk radio appears to be in a state of upheaval right now. 

Yes, in Philly as in the rest of the country talk radio means conservative talk radio. And in a city where Democrats outnumber Republicans seven to one, that's a decided niche market that would seem to war against the whole concept of mass communication. But people like the late Rush Limbaugh (who single-handedly saved AM radio) proved that it didn't have to be that way. He showed that a right-leaning broadcast could not only pack a big wallop but could build a big wallet as well.

Still, Rush was 70 years old when he passed away and the fact that no clear successor to Rush has emerged in the nearly three years since his passing shows that talk radio is facing a decided generational shift as well as other challenges. And if you haven't noticed that the format's audience is grayer every year just listen to the ads on the talk stations and the aging demographic will become obvious.

In Philly, the two talk radio stations have been busy shifting programs, hosts, sidekicks and concepts so frequently that it takes a scorecard to keep track of it all. So, let's take a look at the current personalities and their teams reviewed roughly in their order of longevity:

Dom Giordano - Dom is the undisputed Dean of Philly talkers. At WPHT/1210 AM he's held just about every daytime spot and is currently heard in the 12 to 3 PM bracket that used to be Limbaugh's domain. Nobody in the city knows more about the format; no talk jockey is more respected and no one knows Philadelphia better than Dom. His institutional knowledge is legendary. Midday Dom is paired with a young sidekick, Dan Borowski and the two of them seem to work well together. Dom is fearless and insightful. He's been on the radio for nearly 40 years and has proved to be resourceful, adaptable and (most important to Philly audiences) reliably steadfast. What happens to this spot if and when Dom is no longer there? Philadelphians are creatures of habit and they don't like to contemplate such matters. We don't blame them. But you can bet the station (now owned by corporate giant Audacy) has at least a tentative plan in place.

Chris Stigall - Until a few years ago Chris was the morning drive guy at PHT/1210. He's smart, quick, funny, engaging and brings a welcome midwestern sensibility (he's originally from Missouri) to Philly. Plus, he's a genuine principled conservative who's built a significant following. After he and PHT "parted ways" (station parlance for non-renewal of contract) Stigall showed up at WNTP/990 AM in the same drive time spot. At NTP Stigall seems to have found real sweet spot. Paired with the likable (and again, younger) "Fast Eddie" Caiazzo, Stigall attracts big time guests (most recently he chatted with President Donald Trump), handles listener call ins adeptly and tackles real issues thoughtfully. In fact, Stigall gives us what is probably the most substantial, issue-based show in the market and he makes it interesting because it's all done with a human touch that's authentic. 

Rich Zeoli - The irrepressible Zeoli is in a class by himself. He's intense, frenetic, bombastic, quick-witted, shrewd and seemingly unpredictable. All of these characteristics made this Joizee Guy perfect for morning drive when Stigall left PHT for NTP. And Zeoli held that spot (with sidekicks Dawn Stensland and Greg Stocker) until recently when Zeoli went to the afternoon drive spot (3 PM to 7 PM) as part of a shakeup. Zeoli said he didn't want to get up so early in the morning anymore. Whatever the reason, the station touts Zeoli as the "next generation of talk radio." But even Zeoli is paired with a still younger sidekick. None of this seems to matter to Zeoli once he gets wound up and it doesn't seem to take much for that to happen. Zeoli comes closest to Limbaugh in this sense -- he could easily do several hours with no guests and no co-hosts and still keep you entertained. Yes, Zeoli's a political junkie but he's not a policy wonk. He's a happy warrior and the funniest guy on local talk radio.

Dawn Stensland - Broadcast veteran Dawn Stensland now has her own show from 10 AM till noon on PHT sandwiched between her stint with Nick Kayal (see below) and the Girodano Show. This makes her the hardest working person in local radio and she handles it with aplomb. She obviously loves Philadelphia (she's a big cheerleader for the city) and she brings a non-idealogical, graceful common sense (something that's often rare on talk stations) to her own program. She really listens to callers and addresses their concerns with tact and understanding. But don't try to pull her chain as you (literally!) have to get up pretty early in the morning to fool her.

Nick Kayal - Nick Kayal (pronounced kale) is a graduate of Temple University who started at a Philly sports/talk station and then gained experience at sports stations in Nashville and Atlanta. Audacy brought him to Philly last September to take over morning drive at PHT after Zeoli moved to the afternoon spot. Kayal inherited Zeoli's morning pals (Stensland and Stocker) and added younger semi-sidekicks Daniel Valdez and Anthony DiRenzo to the mix to create something called "Kayal & Company" which seems to have been put together by Kayal and Stocker who is also WPHT's brand manager (translation, the station's overall program director). They appear to envision a sort of "morning zoo" of talk radio, mixing politics, sports, pop culture and anything else that comes to mind. The show is short on live guests and call-ins and long on aggregated sound bites from other media and plugs for podcasts and similar social media links  including Twitter, facebook and a live You Tube feed. Hey, the challenges to radio are real. So, it seems that Stocker may be attempting to turn the station's morning drive program into a laboratory for what may work as terrestrial radio (and AM radio in  particular) face accelerated dissolution. What can radio latch onto to survive or will it have to morph into something else and what will that something else be? That's what Kayal & Co. is grappling with. But in the middle of all this the Kayal show seems awfully crowded with five personalities. Maybe the host might benefit by having just one primary sidekick. That would clearly be Stensland, a congenial media pro who brings needed gravitas to the proceedings, not to mention the distaff view. That would also free up Stocker to do what he was presumably hired to do which is run the station. After less than  a year, this is still a work in progress.

And let's not forget our friend Matt Rooney and Christine Flowers. Matt, who appears to be a real rising star at WPHT, is heard every Sunday evening from 7 to 10 PM. Matt will also join Kayal & Company this Friday morning (6/2) from 6 to 10 AM to fill in for one of Nick's sidekicks. As for Christine, she often fills in for Chris Stigall at NTP and she always delivers a smart, opinionated, quick-paced show.

A caveat: The world of broadcasting is notoriously secretive. What you see and hear is not necessarily what's going on behind the scenes. Careers can be cut short in a split second. Since it all comes down to market share, ratings, advertising and money it can be quite cutthroat.

West Virginia Poll Stunner: Will It Hold?

Dan's Book Review: Paul Newman, Elizabeth Taylor

No, Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor did not have a torrid affair. Well, at least not as far as we know, anyway. Yes, they did star together in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof but in the middle of that pairing Taylor's beloved, Mike Todd died tragically and production of the film was halted. No one knew whether or not Liz would ever come back to the set. She did, but it wasn't because of anything Paul Newman said or did. In fact, when he went to comfort her he got all tongue tied and wound up awkwardly excusing himself.

Paul Newman was not terribly articulate. Yes, he was a fine actor but in real life he was enigmatic, brooding and often unapproachable. This is all revealed in the book Paul Newman, The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man. Big portions of the book were written by Newman to be part of an autobiography that was never published. After Newman's death his children put the project back together and added recollections of those who knew him to provide a full picture of the man and his life.

Paul Newman hated all the fuss and attention that went along with being a movie star. He didn't like being recognized by people; he didn't like being stared at; he didn't like it if you asked for his autograph; he didn't like watching himself on the screen. He seemed tortured by all this and throughout the book Newman insists he doesn't know what his special talent is and why it brought him so much fame and fortune. Yes, he admits to being blessed with good looks but doesn't seem to understand why that would be so special. Bottom line: he doth protest too much!

Also, Newman never got over guilt that accompanied his sizzling affair with Joanne Woodward and the breakup of his first marriage. Though he and Woodward married and had three children of their own, Newman still had three kids from his first marriage.

You'll find no whining, no protesting or lamenting from Taylor in Kate Anderson Brower's  new book Elizabeth Taylor, The Grit and Glamour of an Icon. This authorized biography gives us Taylor as the ultimate child star who survived it all: the daily grind of movie mass production in the 1940s and '50s; the sex and drugs of the '60s; the upheaval and collapse of the studio system in the '70s; the wealth and high life of the '80s and the plague of HIV/AIDS that followed. Elizabeth Taylor was touched by all of it and more: unparalleled tragedy, ill health, near death experiences and eight failed marriages (Richard Burton, twice) to name just a few of the bumps along her life's journey.

Through it all, Taylor wore her stardom and notoriety like a second skin and rarely complained. She endured her movie flops, thumbed her nose at the critics, took repeated ridicule like a trooper and emerged as a sort of feisty, benevolent Earth Mother. 

To their credit, both Taylor and Newman raised millions for charity. In that sense, they were responsible stars who made sure to give back. 

Taylor was often loud, demonstrative and confrontational -- a shrewd broad who did not suffer fools gladly. Newman was more introverted, self-reflective and moody -- it was not always easy to know where you stood with him. After reading both these books, you come away feeling that Taylor probably would have been a lot more fun to hang out with.

Ten Words Tell The Whole Story . . .


'Decoration Day' - THIS Is How It All Began

"General Order No. 11, Headquarters, Grand Army of the Republic, Washington, D.C., May 5, 1868: 

"The 30th day of May 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land. In this observance, no form or ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit. 

"We are organized, comrades, as our regulations tell us, for the purpose, among other things, "of preserving and strengthening those kind and fraternal feelings which have bound together the soldiers, sailors, and marines who united to suppress the late rebellion." What can aid more to assure this result than by cherishing tenderly the memory of our heroic dead, who made their breasts a barricade between our country and its foes? Their soldier lives were the reveille of freedom to a race in chains, and their death a tattoo of rebellious tyranny in arms. 

"We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. All that the consecrated wealth and taste of the Nation can add to their adornment and security is but a fitting tribute to the memory of her slain defenders. Let no wanton foot tread rudely on such hallowed grounds. Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners. Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of free and undivided republic. 

"If other eyes grow dull and other hands slack, and other hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remain in us…" -  Gen. John A. Logan
