One of History’s greatest Crossover Fights Set for August 26th

One of History’s greatest Crossover Fights Set for August 26th

LAS VEGAS, NV After all of the speculation, questions, and doubts, the Connor McGregor vs. Floyd “Money” Mayweather fight is officially set. The UFC champion and the undefeated boxing champion are set to fight on August 26th. The desire to see this fight has been highly anticipated all year. Someone even created a Punch-Out style animation to mockingly simulate the fight. McGregor has been trying to lure someone into the ring. He’s talked smack about Brock Lesnar, pro wrestling, every fighter he’s ever fought, Mayweather, and even Jesus. This arrogant, O’Doul’s pint-sized leprechaun said that he could beat Jesus in the octagon. Does McGregor really think he stands a prayer against the one who knocked down an entire Roman army by merely uttering the words “I am he?” Yeah, good luck with that. But in God’s mercy, He lovingly sent the boxer who loves to hug and do prom slow dances in the middle of the ring, in His stead.

This fight was historic because McGregor went up a weight class to gain this title. However, another equally historic fight was his KO victory against Jose Aldo for the featherweight title because Aldo went undefeated since 2006 and has had the WEC/UFC belt since 2009. Mcgregor has only suffered three losses in his career. So as arrogant as he has been, he’s been able to back up the smack...
Chocolate and Wine:  A Love Story

Chocolate and Wine: A Love Story

On February 11th, I had an early Valentine’s Day celebration with my dear wife. I found a small event at Public Beer Wine Shop— a chocolate and wine tasting. Public Beer and Wine Shop is Located on 4th street in Long Beach, California. This year they teamed up with Romeo Chocolates to provide chocolate and wine pairings. Romeo Chocolates was founded by chocolatier Romeo Garcia in 2014. Garcia traveled to Belgium, where he studied alongside more established chocolatiers. Currently, he makes chocolates by hand, alongside his mother, who he affectionately nicknamed “Momma Chocolate.” Garcia was at the event to not only provide the chocolates, but to walk us through the proper ways to indulge in each type. The event was sold out.  There were 25 guests in attendance and I don’t think any of us will look at chocolate the same way again. The first course was a series of handcrafted chocolate tasting squares: one square was 54% semi sweet Belgian dark chocolate, and another square was 70% Honduran cacao. Like a wine tasting, Romeo showed us a special way to eat the chocolate squares in a series of steps: 1. Pinch and hold your nose. 2. Take a deep breath and hold it. 3. Exhale and place chocolate on your tongue. One will find that these steps will enhance the flavors and notes of the chocolate, as the taste buds will become more sensitive and better absorb the chocolates.  The 54% Belgian, semi-sweet chocolate tasted much sweeter than most dark chocolates with over 50% cacao. The 70% Honduran chocolate had some obvious notes of coffee. The milk chocolate had hints of...
“Stronger Together?” “No King But Caesar” is more like it

“Stronger Together?” “No King But Caesar” is more like it

I’ve been seeing that slogan “Stronger Together” as if she really believes in uniting everybody and working together. “Stronger Together” really means our government will be stronger as we work with the elites, the globalists, and the establishment politicians at the expense of our rights, liberties, and well-being. However, as I looked at the inconsistencies and hypocrisies, I think I found a perfect campaign motto for Clinton/ Kaine, “No king but Caesar!” I was watching Jesus Christ Superstar (based on the true story of Jesus’ final days) the other day.  I got to the Trial Before Pilate. In this scene, the people of the village and the high priests witnessed as Pilate weighed how he would handle Jesus. As he questioned Jesus, the crowd called for his demise. Pilate asked, “You’d crucify your king? “ Their response:” we have no king, but Caesar! Crucify him!” Pilate asked for a crime to justify his execution and they continued, “We have no king but Caesar! Crucify him!” Pilate then called them out, “Well this is news, respect for Caesar? Up until now, this has been noticeably lacking! […] You hypocrites, you hate us more than him!” The crowd was still unrelenting with the same response (Trial Before Pilate). Keep in mind these same people, in the Bible, who hailed him as king, chanted “Hosanna,” begged him to help them overthrow the Roman Empire, and even refused to pay taxes to Caesar because “they have no king but God.” Ironically when they realized Jesus wasn’t going to give them what they felt they needed ( overturning Rome), they turned on him. Also,...
Hillary Suggested “Droning” Julian Assange

Hillary Suggested “Droning” Julian Assange

WASHINGTON DC October 3- On Monday, a screenshot of a document revealed that Hillary expressed a desire to assassinate Julian Assange in 2010. Wikileaks obtained a copy of a document written by the organization states, citing Hillary’s desire to kill Julian via drone strike, “Can’t we just drone this guy?’ Clinton openly inquired. This comes on the eve of Julian Assange’s anticipated “October Surprise.” Assange was supposed to unleash his October Surprise from the balcony of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, but Jessie Rodriguez of NBC reported, “Due to security concerns at the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange’s balcony announcement on [Tuesday] has been canceled.” Some media, such as Info Wars, anticipated that Assange would move the revelation to Berlin via video at 3:00 AM ET during their 10th year anniversary. Info Wars covered the press conference at 3:00 AM ET.  However, Alex Jones of Info Wars was disappointed to find that Assange had no intention of releasing any damning information on Hillary. “I gotta say it was shameful. I think he’s done a lot of good work. I’ve supported Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. They’ve bipartisanally exposed the left and the right, but I gotta tell you the way he said ‘ and those who thought I’d release some big information on the election right now, at 3:00 Am, you’re wrong. I’ll release the info by the end of the year.’  Well, the election is 34 days away, so that’s worthless. You said it would get her indicted for the last two months ,” Jones said angrily. Assange says that he will release information, starting next Wednesday, for the next ten weeks....
Obama Receives First Veto Override of his Tenure

Obama Receives First Veto Override of his Tenure

WASHINGTON D.C. September 28- Today, Congress worked together to override an Obama veto for the first time. This bill allowed 9/11 victims’ families to sue members of the Saudi Arabian government for involvement in the attacks. This marks a significant defeat for President Obama. Fox News reported: “Despite last-ditch warnings from the Obama administration that the legislation could hurt national security and was “badly misguided,” lawmakers dismissed the concerns […]. In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Reid, Obama warned the bill could cause chaos in U.S. foreign affairs, as other countries would use the measure to justify the creation of ways to target ‘U.S. policies and activities that they oppose.”   “As a result, our nation and its armed forces, State Department, intelligence officials and others may find themselves subject to lawsuits in foreign courts,” wrote Obama in the letter, which was delivered this past Tuesday.” However, supporters of the bill countered, by calling Obama’s logic, “unconvincing and unsupportable,” and argued that this bill is narrowly tailored and only applies to terror acts on foreign soil. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, discussed the importance of the bill passing “This bill is about respecting the voices and rights of American victims.” Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY, also voiced his opinion on the senate floor before voting to override Obama’s veto: “It’s very simple. If the Saudis were culpable, they should be held accountable. If they had nothing to do with 9/11, they have nothing to fear.”  Overriding a veto is difficult because it requires a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate and the House. However, Obama’s veto was easily overridden...
And the Winner of the Debate is… Gary Johnson!

And the Winner of the Debate is… Gary Johnson!

 HAMPSTEAD, NY September 26- Many Americans tuned in to see the first of three presidential debates. While many were hopeful, the debate probably killed more brain cells than sniffing paint, watching Jerry Springer or watching Maury’s paternity tests.  Don’t get me wrong; Trump had his high points, but finding them proved to be challenging. However, each debate must have a winner, and I declare the winner is…. GARY JOHNSON! He’s simply the winner because his brain was spared the exposure to all the hot air on the Hofstra stage. For the record, I am not a “Never Trumper.”  I am more of a ” Never Hillary” guy. I still plan on voting for Trump and hope that he follows through with his promises. However, as a journalist, I need to be fair, and I wanted to pull my hair out of my head because the Monday debate was like a game between the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions (during their season when they went 0-16 in 2008).  There were so many fumbles, bad plays, and missed opportunities to score.  Trump seems to be underestimating the importance of the debates, which is a chance for voters of both parties to be able to see an intelligent exchange of ideas, a calling out of the records of each candidate, and an unadulterated discussion between both candidates, without media censoring. Hillary Clinton threw Trump several slow balls down the center of home plate but Trump didn’t swing. For example, Trump said nothing about Hillary’s mention of positive gangs, Benghazi and her indignant attitude towards victims’ families, or the crimes committed by illegal immigrants, her vow to end...
