In June, 90% of respondents in Suffolk U poll who trust Fox viewed Trump favorably. He's now at 58%.

In June, 90 percent of respondents in a Suffolk University poll who said they trust Fox over other news networks viewed Trump favorably, but by October, approval had fallen to 74 percent and plummeted to 58 percent in December, The Washington Post reported on Thursday. Thatís a 32-point drop in six months.

...what a hap, hap, HAPPY day for AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon. Ajit Pai, kiss my ass.

The approval of FCC Chairman Ajit Paiís proposal marked a victory for internet service providers like AT&T Inc, Comcast Corp and Verizon Communications Inc and hands them power over what content consumers can access.

Democrats, Hollywood and companies like Google parent Alphabet Inc and Facebook Inc had urged Pai, a Republican appointed by U.S. President Donald Trump, to keep the Obama-era rules barring service providers from blocking, slowing access to or charging more for certain content.

Consumer advocates and trade groups representing content providers have planned a legal challenge aimed at preserving those rules.

The meeting was evacuated before the vote for about 10 minutes due to an unspecified security threat, and resumed after law enforcement with sniffer dogs checked the room.


Trump: "Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!"

The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!

Pat Dinizio's final Facebook post, December 9th. R.I.P., and long live The Smithereens.

Hey everybody - it's your old friend and colleague, Pat DiNizio from 'America's Band' the world famous Smithereens!

Happy Saturday to all of you. I hope that you are doing well and are already hard at work enjoying your weekend. I have been getting a lot of gratifying and encouraging emails and Facebook postings from so many of you regarding my health and I want you to know that your interest and concern truly means the world to me. I learned a long time ago that life is a series of constant adjustments and with that in mind, we are doing our very best to deal with current medical issues to get me in shape for our upcoming gigs.

I have been receiving very good care and several physical therapy sessions at home each week here at Hollingsworth House in Scotch Plains (a Victorian farmhouse built in 1885 that I purchased 20 years ago - I am only the 3rd owner of the house!) and rest assured I am receiving the best medical care and attention possible to repair the damage done to my neck and back in my recent falls.
On another note, here is a list of movies I will be watching on Blue Ray and DVD this weekend. Let me know if you are a fan of any of these movies and want to post a movie review:


Anyway, hope you are well, talk soon, see you soon.

Love and happiness to you,
Pat D.


"We still got to go by the rules about this recount provision"

Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore on Tuesday refused to concede the race to Democrat Doug Jones, suggesting he would wait for a recount despite preliminary results indicating he would lose the contest by an amount greater than the margin that would trigger such a process.

"Realize when the vote is this close, it's not over," Moore said. "And we still got to go by the rules about this recount provision."

"It's not over and it's going to take some time," he added at the end of his speech.

"Part of the problem with this campaign is we've been painted in an unfavorable and unfaithful light," Moore said.


Trump: "Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory."

Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!

Dan Rather compares Trump to "a caged animal pacing and baring its fangs"


Have you ever seen a caged animal pacing and baring its fangs? It is an unsettling sight as any movement or meeting of the eyes can induce a blood-curdling roar and you are left to wonder if those bars are strong enough to protect you from the wrath of nature.

This image has been in my mind of late as I watch what seems to be the encircling forces ensnaring President Trump. There is the Mueller investigation, of which we can only mostly infer on what is known but seems to be honing in on people and actions very close to the President, if not already at his footstep. And then there is the sexual harassment tidal wave that Trump was able to ride out during the campaign but has returned with magnified force.

As is his nature, Mr. Trump is lashing out - most recently at Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand who called on him to resign. The President's tweet said the Senator "would do anything for" campaign donations. This is disgusting and sexist rhetoric. It is so far below the standards of human decency that no civil person should condone it, let alone normalize it.

But unlike a caged animal there are very few bars between President Trump and the fate of our republic. What there is are our institutions, some of which like the courts and the press have largely held. Others of which, like a Congress full of Republican apologists, have not - up to this point.

But I think that what we are seeing here is fear, a deep fear of a world closing in. After all fear is what an animal in a cage really is feeling. The opposition to President Trump is emboldened. It is clear that Democrats who are positioning themselves for a run at the Oval Office in 2020 - like Senator Gillibrand - feel that their path lies through calling out Mr. Trump, especially on his sexual harassment allegations. Meanwhile Mueller keeps digging, and digging.

I believe in the decency of the vast majority of the American people. I believe that most know this is not normal, not normal at all. I believe that most know we have been and should be better than this.

There is a showdown in Alabama tonight. It is impossible to tell what will happen. But whatever the outcome, the Republican Party has become the Party of Trump. And they will have to wear that mantle in front of the American electorate likely for years to come.
