Breaking News: The little guy with the sticking up flat top haircut in the medium green leisure suit has kicked the proverbial bucket, breathed his last breath, croaked, succumbed to life as we know it, passed, gone to have lunch with his maker, slipped the pearly bonds of dictatorship, ripped his last one, guzzled his […]

JACK “A” went to prison for his actions as the most notoriously successful Washington Lobbyist in modern history. Abramoff served three (3)1/2 years for his somewhat unscrupulous deeds as a Washington insider and was one of the best lobbyists in the history of our country. The guy knows his stuff, even if it is askew […]

The Penn State pedophile tragedy by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky took out an icon, football legend of almost 46 years…head football coach, Joe Paterno. Joe reported the lurid event, witnessed by a young assistant, to the Penn State College President and several other college officials were made aware of the allegations but turned their […]

As Americans, we have lost one of our great commentators, newscasters, and our no holds barred conversationalist… Andy Rooney. You will remember Andy as the wrap-up, tongue in cheek guy at the end of the Celebrated CBS Show “60 Minutes.” Andy was to me…the 21st Century version of “Will Rogers” and much, much, more. To […]

This week, history recorded the birth of the 7th Billion Human Baby born on earth. November o1,2011. It was sorta convoluted as there seemed to be so many births each minute that when the statisticians tried to find the precise “one” among the world population it was seemingly many simultaneous births within micro seconds of […]

Do you believe this crap? The worthless silver spoon “_ _ _ _ h” and new hubby got an estimated $ 17 Million for the TV rights to air their wedding which was just this weekend. And we wonder what is wrong with a Country and its People who support these baseless,  talentless wannabees , […]

OK, America… let’s revolt and support those who are sitting in and camping out in the “Occupy” demonstrations in D.C., New York, Atlanta, Little Rock, San Francisco & all across the United States.  Our great country is being manhandled and ruled by the (1%) one percent.   Fact: Since 1979 to 2011… the Rich 1% ‘s […]

What a Joke… If  you care to read Snopes’  Flights of Fancy, it is The Nite Ranter’s humble opinion that it’s a very vague review of this reported event. Why? Because Snopes reports that it “has since been negated by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.” Oh yeah, now THAT assures […]

CNN recently brought this informative video to The Nite Ranter’s attention. It is a supreme example of  the “KISS” method… Keep It  Simple Stupid. Surely, even all those ultra conservative, TEA Party sign-waving complainers — and maybe even a Michele Bachmann type —  can understand this… HA! Fat chance on that one  but, hey, I’m […]

Well, Anthony Weiner is gone… What with the media frenzy, his colleagues and his wife of only one year (who is a close staff member of  Secretary of  State Hillary Clinton) asking him to resign, Weiner finally did it. He resigned his House of Representatives post effective today. The New York representative, with over twelve […]

The big fight in Washington between the parties has been going on for years regarding these strategically valuable and important programs. The truth is that the Republicans have never supported any of them.  And the reality is that they have presented no plan to provide increased jobs, increased home sales, improved real estate values, cut […]

Osama Bin Laden was killed by a crack team of U.S. Navy SEALS. The most elite strike force known as “Team Six.” They took Bin Laden out without any losses to their team… with the exception of one stealth helicopter. “God Bless America!” The Obama Administration, The CIA, The Pentagon and constant ground intelligence had […]

The United States Military has hunted down and killed the mastermind of 9/11. This is a confirmed report and his body is in U.S. hands as of tonight. This may well be the beginning of the end of The World Wide War on terror. President Obama will make a special announcement within the hour. It […]

Move over Sarah Palin (remember her?) Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney  and lesser losers …the “TrompMiester” is walking and tromping all over your collective territories;  stealing all of your wannabe thunder… None of  you are out there fighting for your respective (and previously hard fought) platforms… HELLO! Where are you?   Um… Sarah? Where you […]

Let’s try and get the facts right. The pander in Washington about the budget deficit is a topic of hot media debate and every politician with a mouth is spouting out his or her opinions as to what to do and… who is to blame. The overwhelming opinion of the Republican Party stalwarts and their […]

Washington never changes…but here is a way to change that and it makes sense. The career politicians make budget cuts, huge mistakes, ear-mark personal pet projects and they lose nothing… but as American tax payers, we lose and we pay… and we pay dearly. Consider this! Why should Washington Politicians continue to be paid their […]

Here we are friends…and the situation in Washington as to “shutting down our Nations Government” has moved into the 11th hour and counting. How could a reasonable number of highly compensated Republican, Democratic & TEA Party tax payer paid politicians play games with their various power strokes and inflated egos on the tax payers dime, […]

This is not a TV Reality Show or is it? The potential shut-down of The American Government is looming on the horizon and that event has happened in 1995 and 1996. The “Orange” man John Boehner speaks from the wisdom of a career politician who has nothing to loose monetarily one way or the other. […]

First, let’s look into the eyes of a tyrannical and insidious dictator of over 40 years of brutality on his people. This is not a pretty picture. But, it is real! Now imagine if you can, being subservient to a person so bizarre and deranged controlling your government, your nation, your life, and your family […]

Now this really takes the political Washington cake! Wow, now here’s an important topic to go after with all your right wing clout. National Public Radio. An American institution that provides programing that has at its base the core values of the American people. NPR receives federal funding so the Republican party that has offered […]

The NiteRanter has been eating himself from the inside out on this topic. I will admit that I have been remiss in not beating, even pounding with a nine pound hammer on this subject with rants… until now. I received an e-mail from a close friend who put this topic so succinctly out front that […]

Today we lost a voice! A great voice in the discourse of political comment in the US.  His name, David Broder. A renown journalist for the Washington Post and the most visited panel member of Meet the Press (NBC) of over 400 times, died today (03/09/11)  at age 81.  David, The Nite Ranter feels like […]

The people of Egypt have had enough of their country’s President, Hosni Mubarak. It’s no wonder. He’s had over three decades of suppression of freedom, the inability to earn a meaningful wage and even the suppression of the media to effectively, and honestly, communicate to its impoverished countrymen. This is the face of a billionaire […]

Saturday (01/08/11) in Tucson, Arizona, at a local Safeway Grocery store was an uncalled-for blood bath of innocent, caring and involved people exercising their rights to peacefully gather in a political venue. Why would that be a big problem in a free speech environment in The United States of America? Look at the faces… Tweet

Billy Nungasser (President – Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana) is not going to take the U.S. Coast Guard’s crap regarding its clean-up effort eight months after “The BP Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill” disaster… which is still impacting his Parish and its prior to the spill pristine marsh lands. Billy Nungasser stands his ground with the U.S. […]
