“The World’s Greatest Radio Station,” has offered me another shot!
KSFO-San Francisco is home to some of the great conservative radio shows and there is very little time available for a new program.
However, beginning October 25, I will be on the air each Wednesday from 6pm-7pm. The show can also be heard online at ksfo.com.
I am so excited for the opportunity!
Many thanks to the KSFO management team.

These ribs really are world famous.
Since I originally posted this recipe in 2009, I’ve received positive feedback from people all over the planet (including from American states that are known for their own awesome ribs).
Well-meaning BBQ aficionados tell me my ribs should have a little more “bite,” but I’ve found the average guy and gal loves having that meat simply fall off the bone.
So, the Patriot Rib recipe is what it is—a delicious crowd pleaser!
By the way, I’ve updated the recipe a bit over the years, with the help of my professional chef son, so this is the latest and greatest version!
Here’s the recipe:
Remove the ribs from the wrapping. DO NOT rinse the ribs. Place the ribs bone-side down in a ceramic, or glass, baking pan. Cover both sides of the ribs with BBQ rib rub of choice (I prefer Kirkland’s Sweet Mesquite BBQ Rub from Costco, but if you have a favorite use it!). By the way, St. Louis pork ribs work just as well as the baby backs (I cannot guarantee this recipe for beef ribs).
Next, give your hands a good wash and then pour a nice stout beer (I prefer Guinness Stout)) into the pan, a little less than an inch deep. Do not try this with anything other than a dark stout beer or the ribs will be ruined.
Cover with aluminum foil and let the ribs sit for an hour on the kitchen counter.
Preheat your oven to 320. Bake the ribs (in the pan, with the beer, covered with foil) for two hours.
Next, turn off the oven. Let the ribs remain in the closed oven for another 45-minutes.
While the ribs are sitting in the oven, fire up your BBQ/grill and get the cooking grate nice and hot.
Now we’re ready for “show time.” Take the ribs out of the oven, and out of the pan, and place directly onto the grate, meat side down. Slather a nice thin layer of sauce (Sweet Baby Rays is a big winner in my household) onto the bone side. Let them cook for 5-minutes.
Next, flip the ribs so the bone side is now down (you may have a rib or two fall away from the meat, but it’s going to be oh, so sweet to eat!).
Slather that sauce onto the meat side. Let them cook for a good 5-minutes This will allow the sauce to caramelize.
Finally, get those ribs off the grill and onto a big serving plate! Once served, the meat will literally fall off the bone. If your guests want additional sauce on their ribs make it available—and don’t forget a roll of paper towels in the middle of the table.
God bless you, your family, and America!
Enjoy the ribs!
The media is going overboard trying to pin Hurricane Hilary on climate change.

Today is the National Day of Prayer. We are the only nation to have such a law on the books.
Yes, a law.
The National Day of Prayer is a federal statute, Public Law 82-324, passed in 1952 at the direct suggestion of Rev. Billy Graham. Its purpose, as explained by Graham, was to help bring “the Lord Jesus Christ” to the nation. “What a thrilling, glorious thing it would be to see the leaders of our country kneeling before almighty God in prayer. What a thrill would sweep this country. What renewed hope and courage would grip the Americans at this hour of peril,” Graham said.
U.S. Sen. Absalom Robertson, father of Rev. Pat Robertson, introduced the bill in the Senate, saying it was a measure against “the corrosive forces of communism which seek simultaneously to destroy our democratic way of life and the faith in an Almighty God on which it is based.”
The Senate report further claimed:
“Prayer has indeed been a vital force in the growth and development of this Nation. It would certainly be appropriate if, pursuant to this resolution, and the proclamation it urges, the people of this country were to unite in a day of prayer each year, each in accordance with his own religious faith, thus reaffirming in a dramatic manner the deep religious conviction which has prevailed throughout the history of the United States.”
The National Day of Prayer is a vital part of our heritage. Since the first call to prayer in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation, the call to prayer has continued through our history, including President Lincoln’s proclamation of a day of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer” in 1863. In 1952, a joint resolution by Congress, signed by President Truman, declared an annual national day of prayer. In 1988, the law was amended and signed by President Reagan, permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of every May.
