Tone Deaf Democrats From Eric Garcetti to Rep. Pramila Jayapal: Do They Even Know How To Be Normal?

By Marc Ang Guest Columnist While I have celebrated the success of “Squid Game” in my journalism as an example of commercial and artistic exceptional excellence, I wasn’t prepared for the liberal Democrats’ next move. For years, I had complained about Asians being shut out of entertainment in America but in 2018, the floodgates opened seemingly as major players who were actively excluding Asians, like Harvey Weinstein, were brought down by the #MeToo movement. CNBNews graphic file In typical shallow virtue signaling action, Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles recently declared September 17th as official “Squid Game Day”. Exactly why?... Read more →

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY: Education and Crime

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNewsnet GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (September 19, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--While working on an educational project I found statistics on the city households which led me to look into crime statistics. It is supposedly a fact that students from traditional households (married mother and father) make out better in school and commit fewer crimes. I decided to see if that holds true. In a prior article I compared Gloucester City with Woodbury. This time I threw in Brooklawn just for flavor. CNBNews graphic file Students in Gloucester City: 55% come from traditional families; 17% of the parents co-habit; 26% of our... Read more →

The sparsely attended appearance in Wilkes-Barre, PA was touted as a promotion for Biden’s “Safer America Plan,” but was really just another opportunity for the president to rail against NRA, Republicans, law-abiding gun owners, semi-automatic firearms, and the Second Amendment. Biden’s meandering, at times confusing delivery was what you would expect. He told a... Read more →


THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY:

Those In Charge of Our Military Are An Embarrassment

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNewsnet Years ago, our military had slogans such as "Join the Navy, See the World," or "Be all that you can be, Join the Army." Those slogans have been replaced this year with 'Join our Military and Live off Food Stamps." It's not only sad but also an embarrassment. This week the members of our military were told that, because of inflation, they may be having a problem making ends meet and they should apply food stamps, today called SNAP. I have a relative in the Air Force serving in Alaska. Hawaii and Alaska are the two... Read more →
