Al Hughes Dukes Claims Craig Carton Victims “Bad Guys”, really? Ron DelGaudio Pharmacy Owner?? And Boomer Esiason/rest of WFAN Commenters Stay Silent While Al Dukes Hughes Declares “No Little Guys/401k’s Ripped Off” the entire station; WFAN, Mark Chernoff, Jerry Recco, Eddie Scozzare, Greg Giannotti, all stayed silent when Al Dukes Hughes Stated “No Little Guys Ripped Off”. Hypocritical scumbags, the whole lot of these WFAN stooges.

November 8th, 2018 · Comments Off

Al Hughes Dukes truly is low class, he goes on WFAN today to claim that Craig Carton’s crimes were simply “bad guys ripping off bad guys”, he has tweeted in the past that he does not consider Carton’s crimes egregious enough to warrant jail time.

Today on Twitter Al Hughes Dukes lambasted fans who dared question Hughes on why he was so blase about actual victims in the Carton ponzi scheme. He continually chastised Twitter users, asking them if they knew who the victims were, implying they were all simply bad guys and deserved to be ripped off.

Yet Bloomberg reports that one of Carton’s victims is Ron DelGaudio, a man who owns a string of pharmacies

Also Al Dukes Hughes went on WFAN today to declare that nobody’s 401k was pilfered by Carton but Carton ripped off a hedge fund, the idiot Hughes does not understand the way in which 401k’s intersect with hedge funds.

The ultimate weasel Boomer Esiasion declared there were actual victims of Carton’s crimes, yet he offered silence when Al Dukes Hughes directly contradicted Boomer’s fake noble statements. In fact the entire station, WFAN, Mark Chernoff, Jerry Recco, Eddie Scozzare, Greg Giannotti, all stayed silent when Al Hughes Dukes stated that “no little guy” was ripped off, this was simply “bad guys stealing from bad guys”, “nobody’s 401k was pilfered”.

Apparently it is OK to steal one million dollars from a pharmacy owner. Did he not go to work every day, did he not have part time/full time employees, what is the over/under on how much money one is worth to be considered a little guy. Hypocritical scumbags, the whole lot of these WFAN stooges.

Al “Dukes” Hughes is a phony, on the day Craig Carton was arrested he was tweeting about washing machines, now he tries to play the role of loyal friend and co-worker and he accomplishes this by white washing Carton’s crimes as if Carton was ripping off drug dealers, we have learned that one of Carton’s victims owned or managed a strip club, ok, does that mean he deserves to be stolen from, who is Al Hughes, which parts of one character determines if people are allowed to steal from you, can Al Hughes Dukes provide his list of acceptable and non acceptable victims.

Bloomberg reports another victim owns a medical supply business, was he dirty too in Al Hughes Dukes eyes? And Al Hughes claims inside knowledge on the victims, really from where, is Al (Dukes) Hughes a journalist, a private investigator, somebody who has an expertise in background checks who has actually taken his own time and money to research the victims of Craig Carton?

Or did Al Hughes Dukes hear Craig Carton cry and whine that all his victims were scumbags who deserved to be stolen from, well we know the truth and so does the jury, it is a shame that WFAN allowed another scumbag to openly trash the victims on its airwaves today.

And a further shame that the coward Boomer offered zero in response.

Here are the Al Hughes Dukes tweets from today:

So I guess you ok with your WFAN 401k being used at casino

And here is the official transcript from Newsday that was uttered on WFAN:

Al Hughes Dukes, “So this idea that we all knew all this stuff going on or that I hear reports that Craig stole from people’s 401Ks, that did not happen. Craig was not selling people fake tickets. He wasn’t ripping off your 401K. He got involved with what seems to be some bad guys. He was doing bad things. He wasn’t ripping off the little man going to work every day or selling you fake tickets. What he did was wrong, 100 percent. But there’s this misconception of what his crime really was and what he was doing.”

And here is another Al Hughes Twitter exchange:

Al, you keep asking who the victims are. Do you know how hedge funds work? Institutional investors, including retirement funds, invest in them. So Craig stole from people’s 401ks

@Alsboringtweets

Show me an individual. Just one individual

    To Al Hughes: Read a newspaper you illiterate weasel.

Francesa Source: Mike’s On App Paid Subscribers = Less Than 500.

If anyone wants to bet Mike Francesa, set the over/under line at 500, take the under, $10,000 for every one under 500 and you will rake in the green.

Newsflash: Don’t listen to RN’s Funhouse or BackAftaThis or whatever his current Twitter handle is, he is lost on this topic, fed BS from Brian Monzo.

Paid subscribers, I want to see any of these so called in the know Twitter people break out those numbers, they won’t because the reality is weak, very weak.

Mike is posturing to improve his WFAN salary, no other explanations are necessary.

David Sanger of NY Times Falsely Writes Headline Click Bait Old Story As New, Mistakenly Asserts That Michael Beschloss Who Is A Pop/TV Historian and Not an Academic/Real Historian, Sanger asserts that Beschloss has a Scoop in his new Book, “Presidents Of War”. When in fact this story, the cable that the NY Times claims was first broken in the Beschloss book, and the operation code name “Fracture Jaw” were first written in a book from 2009 by Ron Milam, “Not A Gentleman’s War”, and another book written in 2014 by Herbert Y. Schandler, “Lyndon Johnson and Vietnam: The Unmaking of a President”. Tactical nuclear weapons is old news 2009 not new as Sanger/Beschloss falsely claim.

David Sanger of NY Times Falsely Writes Headline Click Bait Old Story As New, Mistakenly Asserts That Michael Beschloss Who Is A Pop/TV Historian and Not an Academic/Real Historian, Sanger asserts that Beschloss has a Scoop in his new Book, “Presidents Of War”. When in fact this story, the cable that the NY Times claims was first broken in the Beschloss book, and the operation code name “Fracture Jaw” were first written in a book from 2009 by Ron Milam, “Not A Gentleman’s War”, and another book written in 2014 by Herbert Y. Schandler, “Lyndon Johnson and Vietnam: The Unmaking of a President”.

And a third publication which appears to be written by our government, entitled, “MACV: The Joint Command in the Years of Withdrawal, 1968-1973″.

Is David E. Sanger a lazy journalist who does not vet basic facts or research the entire premise/headline of his story or is David Sanger a naked liar who is shilling for Michael Beschloss’ book and knowingly trying to paint an old story as new in order to promote the Beschloss book, mind you Beschloss is a NY Times contributor, pointed out in the article by Sanger.

Or is this just how the book industry works, when you have these pop historians or pop biographers like the Walter Isaacson con biographer, remember his Steve Jobs bio that failed to interview neigbors of Steve Jobs, neighbors that could have confirmed that Jobs was a bigger piece of garbage than Sir Walter deigned to write in his book, anyway is this just how the tv/newspaper/publisher relationship circle works?

Further did Michael Beschloss cite the three sources from 2009 and onward in his new book or did he plagiarize them and has he done this in previous books?

Here is David Sanger:

The new documents — some of which were quietly declassified two years ago — suggest it was moving in that direction.

“Should the situation in the DMZ area change dramatically, we should be prepared to introduce weapons of greater effectiveness against massed forces,” General Westmoreland wrote in a cable that was declassified in 2014 but did not come to light until Mr. Beschloss cited it in his forthcoming book.

Those are either two lies written by Sanger or mistakes or who knows, you see Sanger all the time on TV, if he is this lazy or in fact this much of a liar in order to pimp a Beschloss book what else does he make mistakes on in his reporting?

Because that cable was in both the 2009 and 2014 book, further the article suggests that Operation Fracture Jaw was solely created by Westmoreland in secret and was only terminated when an angry LBJ found out about it, however in both of these books information points to a different reality.

Ron Milam writes:

President Johnson was so concerned about another Dien Bien Phu that he asked Joints Chiefs of Staff Chairman Earle Wheeler to look into the use of nuclear weapons, which would have “tipped the scales” in slaying the noble enemy.

Schandler writes that LBJ was concerned that he might be pressured to use tactical nuclear weapons in the event of a Khe Sanh disaster, Westmoreland responded that it would not be necessary but it should be considered as a last resort.

This suggests that Fracture Jaw was authorized by LBJ as a contingency plan, would anyone be surprised to learn that Beschloss is spinning history to make it look more dramatic in order to sell more books.

But it gets better, the government book suggests that the only reason Fracture Jaw was terminated was due to the fact that the operation was made public and Senator Eugene McCarthy was charging that the United States was considering the use of nuclear weapons in Vietnam.

LBJ knew about it the entire time and only terminated it when word of it leaked, this is not a new scoop but old news and Beschloss’ reading or stealing of this news is not even accurate.

Update: In fact this is from the NY Times archive, February 9, 1968 entitled, “White House Disputes McCarthy on Atom Arms:

The White House and the Pentagon described as false and ridiculous today speculation that the military had sought nuclear weapons for use in Vietnam and was stockpiling them there.

Three days later the US shut down Fracture Jaw, this further damages Beschloss’ theory.

Oh and again from the NY Times on February 11, 1968:

A seeming relationship between two missions to the Far East, one at the climax of the Korean War and the other last week, may be at least partly responsible for the flurry of reports that the use of nuclear weapons in Vietnam has been under consideration.

Here is the NY Times on 2/12/1968:

Prime Minister Wilson has cautioned that it would be “sheer lunacy” for the United States to use tactical nuclear weapons in Vietnam.

And again on the 13th:

The rumor started with an anonymous phone call to a Congressional committee. Within a week the rumor had gone around the world and involved the President of the United States, the Prime Minister of Britain and leaders of Congress in a discussion over whether or not the United States was considering using tactical nuclear weapons in Vietnam.

LBJ famously micromanaged the Vietnam War, an anonymous tipster calls Congress and Beschloss would have you believe LBJ had no idea what Westmoreland was planning, clearly Beschloss is spinning history because by depicting LBJ as this sober minded President, a leader who stopped the use of nuclear weapons in the Far East, this serves as a contrast to the fear that Trump would do the opposite and actually use nukes in North Korea.

This is a con job by Beschloss to sell books, yesterday he was on Meet The Press and he said he had discovered “hidden history”, sorry Beschie, you stole history from a 2009 book and you also took it out of context to fit the narrative that would best help sell your book, no better than the liars we have currently running things.

Update II: And we now have a fourth book, Public Affairs: The Military and the Media, 1962-1968
By William M. Hammond
:

Johnson remained dissatisfied. Aware that the U.S. command in South Vietnam was preparing contingency plans for the use of nuclear weapons, he told General Wheeler on 3 February that he was concerned the enemy might force him to drop an atomic bomb at Khe Sanh—a decision he had no wish to make.

(The book now discusses how a fervor regarding the possibility that tactical weapons might be used in Vietnam was sweeping Washington D.C., in fact world leaders were now commenting on it. The book detailed how it all started with an anonymous tip to the Fulbright Committee. The tipster asked the Committee to look into why one of the United States’ leading experts on tactical nuclear weapons, Professor Richard L. Garwin of Columbia University had recently traveled to South Vietnam along with several other scientists)

After describing more about the rumors hitting the Johnson administration, the author finishes with this:

The Johnson administration quietly yielded to the pressure. On 12 February Admiral Sharp ordered Westmoreland to discontinue contingency planning for the use of nuclear weapons and to lock up all written materials generated by the project.

Again are we to believe that tactical nuclear weapons experts were being flown into South Vietnam without the knowledge of LBJ. Also on Meet the Press, Beschloss gave the impression that Westmoreland was planning to use the tactical nuclear weapons when it is clear from the source material this was strictly a contingency plan.

Update III: Here are Westmoreland’s own words on the subject:

Westmoreland added one more thing: “There was another possibility at Khe Sanh: tactical nuclear weapons.”

He was serious about it. “If Washington officials were so intent on ‘sending a message’ to Hanoi,” he wrote, “surely small tactical nuclear weapons would be a way to tell Hanoi something.” Washington was having no part of it, however. “Although I established a small secret group to study the subject,” Westmoreland reported, “Washington so feared that some word of it might reach the press that I was told to desist. I felt at the time and even more so now that to fail to consider this alternative was a mistake.”

And apparently promoting a product that he believes may in fact cause cancer or at least that is what he was telling his audience for years and it was for that very reason that Savage was telling his audience to avoid Viagra and Arginine supplements.

The scientific truth based on available evidence is that nitric oxide products don’t cause cancer but the product Savage is now touting as curing a bunch of aging ills won’t do that either, it is pure snake oil.

Forbes Shoddy/Uninformed Record of Journalism Continues With John Tamny, Writes that Wells Fargo Fake Accounts Only Hurts Wells Fargo and Not the Banking Customers, No Mention of the Wells Fargo Shareholders WFC, How is John Tamny Employed as an Economics Writer and Why Would Anyone Read his Book, “The End of Work: Why Your Passion Can Become Your Job”?

Forbes Shoddy/Uninformed Record of Journalism Continues With John Tamny, He Writes that Wells Fargo Fake Accounts Only Hurts Wells Fargo and Not the Banking Customers, No Mention of the Wells Fargo Shareholders WFC, How is John Tamny Employed as an Economics Writer and Why Would Anyone Read his Book, “The End of Work: Why Your Passion Can Become Your Job”?

What is up with the Forbes writing team, they employ writers like Mike Ozanian who writes that stocks go down when investors in a company are happy, yes, he actually wrote that. Well now that John Tamny is making the rounds promoting his book, “The End of Work”, it reminded MikeFrancesa.com of how he was writing articles and appearing on the John Batchelor radio show telling people that the Wells Fargo fake account scandal of 2016 was no big deal and it did not harm customers.

Finance/Business/Economics 101, if a company lies about creating accounts it has a potential to impact the share price, Wells Fargo is a publicly traded company under the ticker WFC, Tamny never even references this fact. He excuses away the fraudulent behavior by writing that that banks sales people are under pressure to produce, really, who cares, so is Apple, how would it look if they opened up millions of fake Icloud or Apple Music accounts to juice their numbers and potentially their stock?

The big premise of Tamny’s writing was that the Wells Fargo fake accounts did not harm any customers, really, tell that to the customers whose credit score was impacted.

Tamny actually wrote this:

Credit cards? It’s also been revealed that some Wells salespeople issued credit cards to clients without telling them. A dumb move for sure, but it’s not as though they were opening charge accounts only to go on buying sprees with the money of others. Eager to build their books of business, Wells employees were plainly opening up accounts and credit cards in the hope that desired clients would use them, along with the bank’s suite of financial services. These clients weren’t forced to use the credit cards or Wells’ services, but the errant Wells employees clearly hoped they would. To the extent that improperly opened credit card accounts enraged potential Wells’ customers, the actions of a few have possibly shut the door on long-term client relationships with thousands of potentially lucrative customers. Again, Wells Fargo was harmed by the actions of a few, not those Wells was courting.

How does Tamny not know the basic building blocks of one’s credit score and that simply the mere act of closing an unauthorized credit card account can damage one’s score?

How is John Tamny employed by any major news organization?

New York Times Can’t Have It Both Ways, NYT Correctly Writes There is NO Immigrant CrimeWave (All Violent Crime At Near Record Lows) But NYT Incorrectly Implies American Public School Students at Great Risk of Getting Shot/Killed: NYT’s Commenter Gives The Correct Assessment

May 20th, 2018 · Comments Off

New York Times Can’t Have It Both Ways, NYT Correctly Writes There is NO Immigrant CrimeWave (All Violent Crime At Near Record Lows) But NYT Incorrectly Implies American Public School Students at Great Risk of Getting Shot/Killed: NYT’s Commenter Gives The Correct Assessment.

Quick facts, look up the FBI crime stats, murder rates at near record lows, in the 5 per 100,000 range, last time we were in the 5’s was roughly 1957 and we have close to 3 times more guns in the America of 2018 as compared to 1957.

The so called experts that I see appearing on CNN keep citing “gun deaths” when they know they are including suicide, a problem that needs to be improved but an entirely different problem than gun homicides.

In fact if you further break down the American homicide rate, the gun homicide rate is roughly between 2 and 3 people per 100,000. Most of the gun deaths sadly are in inner cities that are plagued by gangs and drug problems.

OK so back to the two articles written by the New York Times, both can’t be true, violent crime is at near record lows while American public school students have a legit fear of getting shot to death, the former is true as the NY Times wrote the article to correctly prove that immigrants are not causing some crazy crime wave:

Most areas experienced decreases in all types of violent crime. The change in assault rates ranged from a 34 percent decline to a 29 percent rise, while robbery rates declined in the range of 12 percent to 57 percent, and murder rates declined in the range of 15 percent to 54 percent.

This analysis is one of the most comprehensive longitudinal studies of the local immigrant-crime relationship. It spans decades of metropolitan area data, incorporating places with widely differing social, cultural and economic backgrounds, and a broad range of types of violent crime.

….

Immigrant populations in the United States have been growing fast for decades now. Crime in the same period, however, has moved in the opposite direction, with the national rate of violent crime today well below what it was in 1980.

Murder rates at 1957 levels, violent crime rates at near record lows in most American cities, so how could American public school students, many in leafy suburbs that have less than 1 per 100,000 murder by gun rates be in legit fear of getting shot and killed?

The answer, they fear it because of idiotic mass media coverage of school shootings and New York Times articles that write about their fears without writing the facts, FACT- Add up all the schools in America and then divide by the number of kids killed in mass shootings and you will find more people struck by lightning, but here is the NY Times serving an agenda and not serving journalism:

Shootings are so common that students talk in frighteningly practical terms about the location of doors and windows in their classrooms as risk factors. They calculate escape routes. And they ponder hiding spots in wide-open rooms.

A random New York Times commenter does a better job of analysis than a highly paid NY Times writer:

R
rumplebuttskin

This is absolutely ridiculous. I am incensed by the stupidity.

Statistical fact: an American kid has a greater chance of being struck by lightning than being shot in school. (I calculated that using CDC and NOAA data from this decade.)

Stop all the hand-wringing over how some of the Texas kids were “not surprised” their school got shot up. Of course they weren’t surprised! That doesn’t mean their expectation is even remotely connected to statistical reality. They have a distorted, funhouse-terror view of the world, crafted by media like the NYT, which obsessively cover school shootings, and which help cause future shootings by offering glory to the perpetrators. (Let us not forget that the media makes money off these incidents.)

This fear and stupidity is a party-neutral phenomenon. If an Islamic terror attack happens somewhere in middle America, you could easily find some ignorant right-winger to interview who would say they weren’t at all surprised, that they had lived in fear of Islamic terror attacks before one happened in their town, and they knew it would happen there eventually. Of course, such fear of Islam is statistically ridiculous. Liberals have no trouble recognizing this irrationality in their political opponents — yet they exhibit the same irrational fear and obsession in their own feelings toward guns.

Everyone needs to get a grip. And the media need to halt their socially destructive practice of using these incidents as a profit opportunity.

Wall Street Journal Article is Perfect Encapsulation of Feckless Media & Incompetent FBI in Investigation & Coverage of Florida Shooter, One WSJ Commenter Sums Up What True Common Sense is in one Comment Post

February 16th, 2018 · Comments Off

Wall Street Journal Article is Perfect Encapsulation of Feckless Media & Incompetent FBI in Investigation & Coverage of Florida Shooter, One WSJ Commenter Sums Up What True Common Sense is in one Comment Post.

The FBI might not have been able to prevent this Florida massacre but they at least could have tried, true that they probably have to deal with thousands of threats but in this instance ONE GOOGLE SEARCH would have revealed the true identity of the shooter whose name and pictures should not be promoted by MSNBC/FOX NEWS/CNN/DRUDGE and any other website that takes corporate advertisers.

But the media will never learn or care, all about clicks and viewers and dollars and cents but could at least one of those so called reporters ask the FBI special agent in charge why you did not have one FBI person conduct a simple google search on the Youtube username.

It is not about conspiracy, conspiracy theories are for fools, it is about how does the FBI not fire this special agent who appeared at the news conference and delivered a couple of BS lines about “database checks”, who wrote the script for this bumbling fool.

Instead of playing political games why doesn’t Congress do some real oversight on the agency whose budget they control and find out why the FBI does not know how to use Google, anyway a WSJ commenter sums it up perfectly:

No honest “expert” would provide such poor information. This is a sad example of embracing incompetence.

1. The YouTube comment is a very typical school shooting lead. Many, if not the majority of leads involving high risk youth come from social media and the internet exactly in this manner. These commenters are identified nearly every day by law enforcement.

2. Claiming a grand jury subpoena is needed is a lie. Agents have the power of subpoena. It is the single most basic step of any online investigation. A routine form is signed by an attorney and sent to the company. 1,000 of subpoenas are issued every day in the U.S. The most basic and minimal effort would have identified the YouTube comment poster.

3. Everyone else on earth was able to find this kid online in 30 seconds. The FBI has 1,000’s of people trained in open source investigations, social media investigations, doxing, etc. Claiming their hands were tied because the poster wasn’t in their databases is a lie. A database wasn’t even needed to identify the commenter for the rest of the world. Blaming “the database” is what an old, incompetent, lazy, investigator would do.

4. N***** C*** ISN’T even a common name. He also commented on a local business… which is a CLUE the poster is likely from that general area. Again, everyone else found this kid online no problem.

5. The tip went to the wrong incompetent person. So much so, that he apparrently didn’t even muster the energy to request assistance or share the tip with someone else capable of the most basic online investigation.

6. The bottom line is… MORE could’ve very easily been done… BUT… even so, it may not have prevented this incident. Sadly, we’ll never know for sure.

And the person who wrote this WSJ article should be fired as well.

Apple Pseudo-Adult John Gruber Claims There is No Apple Ecosystem Lock In On the Apple TV, Someone Inform This Paid Media Arm of Apple That the Apple TV Still Has No Spotify or TuneIn App

February 5th, 2018 · Comments Off

Apple Pseudo-Adult John Gruber Claims There is No Apple Ecosystem Lock In On the Apple TV, Someone Inform This Paid Media Arm of Apple That the Apple TV Still Has No Spotify or TuneIn App.

Here is the chief Apple propagandist John Gruberrrrr or Johnny Gruber:

A lot of people are looking at HomePod’s exclusive first-class support for Apple Music and see selfish intent. Apple isn’t working with Spotify or other services because they want everyone to use Apple’s media ecosystem for everything, is the thinking. Maybe! But maybe HomePod only works with Apple Music for now. I don’t know, and Apple isn’t going to tell anyone.

But look at Apple TV. There’s still no “skinny bundle” from Apple itself but now you use Apple TV to watch YouTube’s TV package, Playstation’s, and I’m sure others. There’s certainly no lock-in to the Apple media ecosystem on Apple TV. I think a lot of this is just a big complicated mess behind the scenes.

Hey Gruber, the only mess is located in your Apple addled brain, they are a company not your significant other, they have had years to offer Spotify/TuneIn and other music streaming apps that are rivals to Apple Music on their Apple TV, why do you think they have not?

This is why both the Apple TV and the Apple Homepod are $ inflated pieces of garbage.
