Whitney Houston, the voice of a century, a woman with the look of a Super Model, is gone. Born in 1963, died in 2012. This sad news reported first by CNN… Ironically, on the very night that her Manager and Mentor Clive Davis was to host a Grammy Awards dinner attended by anyone who is […]

Timmy: Go back to your “Graceland” or whatever you call your hang-out. But, please don’t stick yourself in our faces again. Thank You… and here’s a special song dedicated just for you. Now promise The Nite Ranter that you won’t cry, ok? Tweet

Caution: This Rant may get a little long but hopefully not “too” convoluted! Let me state at the outset that The Nite Ranter is not attacking any specific religious belief in this attempt at relating to this latest pop culture event. The “Tim Tebow” saga seems, for some reason, to have captivated the Nation whereas […]

The Nite Ranter is a very sane, rational and, most times, an overly fair individual.  Albeit a little outspoken on some topics… but that is why you guys read my stuff. “Thank You TNR Readers”  for obliging me by giving me this  forum as a springboard for my thoughts and rantings and bringing them to […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Ty Pennington is the “darling” of the home makeover show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, that can tear down a house and build a mega-mansion on the same site in no more than five days. Ty Pennington and his multimillion-dollar team of designers and talking heads are all part of the Sears / Disney-backed  manufacturers that […]

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 […]

The BP Deep Water Horizon, Macondo Well, TransOcean, U.S. Coast Guard, Billy Nungesser, Boom, Chad Allen, Anderson Cooper, Top Kill, Clean-up Crews, Tony Hayward, Marshes, Bayous, Plaquemines Parish …remember these?  They and too many others became icons of the day when the worst oil disaster in our Nation’s history hit the Gulf Coast of  Louisiana, […]

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. […]

“Say it ain’t so!” That’s a popular Southern expression that is echoing through the Parishes, bayous and marshes of this Louisiana coastline once again. This is really “Breaking News” and if true is certainly not good news! The Nite Ranter sat at this Grand Isle, LA – Marina Bar (pictured above) during the BP Deep […]

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 […]

If you’re not aware of this catastrophic event then you are living under a rock!  Take a look at this video of the Tsunami as it hit Japan’s coastal city of  Sendai.  The Tsunami was caused by the recent devastating earth quake that rocked the pacific nation. This is the most devastating natural event to […]

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 […]

How can CNN believe and justify that Piers Morgan (a former British Judge on an American talent show) deserves to replace Larry King? This is not to say that Larry “Suspenders” King is not replaceable. But… Piers Morgan? Tonight’s Guest: The notorious radio show host – Howard Stern I’m watching the show now (Tuesday, 01/18/11) […]
