    Well, that's Strange... Here’s what we know. In the photo below, Chuck Schumer appears with an unidentified foreign personage of some sort. They’re eating donuts at a Kirspy Kreme. We assume everything is on the up and up, because Schumer is obviously a person of the highest moral character, but we’d still like to know who his companion is. He looks kind of familiar, but we just can’t seem to place the face.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says Republican lawmakers should hold town halls even if that means confronting hundreds of angry progressive constituents. “Welcome to the real world of responsibility,” Christie told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday. The governor’s comments come after a week in which massive crowds turned up at GOP town halls to protest President Donald Trump and Republicans’ efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. …

    Today is "Talk Like a Pirate Day" at Krispy Kreme. You get a free glazed donut if you order like a pirate. So I went up to the drive-through and said "Arr! I be havin' a free donut and one 'o yer large coffees with cream an' 3 Splendas, if ye please." (I can speak a pretty good Pirate, having spent many years watching "Spongebob Squarepants" with my daughter and then the grandkids). Unfortunately, the lady manning the drive-through was this Vietnamese lady who didn't speak Pirate. She responded through the speaker "What??? What you want???" I suspect she's going...
  • David and Goliath Battle Over Donuts

    05/10/2016 2:59:52 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 18 replies
    Chin and Jennifer Kim watched the Carl's Jr. go out of business outside their Carmel Mountain Ranch donut shop. Sesame Donuts has been in the same strip mall for 27 years, 17 of those years owned by the Kims. The old Carl's Jr. has been going through renovations lately. It's only 50 yards away and the Chin wanted to know about their new neighbors. That's why he was shocked when a customer told them that neighbor would be a Krispy Kreme Donut Shop. "I was surprised, I didn't believe it," said Chin. Since the word has gotten out to their...

    COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The Richland County Sheriff's Department is saying no harm, no foul after a social media describing a Krispy Kreme employee who refused service to a deputy earlier this week. In a statement posted to its Facebook page, the sheriff's department was informed of this post circulating on Facebook back on April 29. In the post, the man says he was inside the store getting doughnuts when he saw an exchange between two employees at the store -- one working the register, and one working the drive-thru window. "When she looked out the window she said, 'I...

    Employees at an Oklahoma City Krispy Kreme store are searching for an elderly man who left behind something very valuable. He dropped nearly $500 in cash while he was in their store, located at Penn and Memorial. The man dropped the money on the floor in the lobby around 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. “The gentleman had come in, purchased a couple of donuts. As he was putting his money away, he dropped some on the floor,” said Jason Hart with Krispy Kreme. At the time, no one noticed anything strange. About 20 minutes later, an employee was sweeping the lobby...

    Republican Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie has dropped out of the presidential race, reports Fox Business. Despite a strategy that heavily focused money and resources on New Hampshire, Christie ended up in a disappointing sixth place Tuesday. Christie announced shortly after Tuesday's loss that he was retreating to New Jersey and would be reevaluating his campaign. Another major hurdle to Christie's prospects was that he was very unlikely to make Saturday's CBS debate. Polling at seventh place nationwide and sixth in the next primary state of South Carolina, Christie faced an uphill battle with no clear path to victory.

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Krispy Kreme Challenge race officials said Saturday that a man died after running in the annual race. A 58-year old man complained of chest pains during the first mile of the 12th annual race, officials said. The man, who was not identified, was taken to Rex Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. [snip] The run began at 8:30 a.m. at North Carolina State University’s bell tower and runners traveled 2.5 miles to the Krispy Kreme location at the intersection of Peace and person streets. After consuming a dozen donuts, participants ran back to the bell tower.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidates Chris Christie and Rand Paul will be in the prime-time lineup for the party's next presidential debate, CNN said on Sunday. Donald Trump will hold center stage as the party front-runner on the main stage on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, CNN said, flanked by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Ted Cruz, who took the lead in an Iowa opinion poll on Saturday.

    IOWA FALLS — Add Chris Christie to the list of Republicans suddenly ready to engage Donald Trump. The New Jersey governor, whose 2016 bid is getting fresh consideration by voters increasingly concerned about terrorism, spent Saturday warning Iowans against “shiny,” “new” candidates with little security experience. "We do not need reality TV in the Oval Office right now," Christie said at one stop. "President of the United States is not a place for an entertainer," he said at another....

    Appearing Saturday on Fox News' "Fox and Friends," Gov. Chris Christie accused CNBC's Republican presidential debate moderators of showing "bias" that he termed "despicable" but pooh-poohed the Republican National Committee's move to suspend plans for a Feb. 26 GOP presidential primary debate with NBC as a bit much. "If you're running for president of the United States and you can't handle yourself against three CNBC moderators without crying foul and calling for intervention then you're not going to do very well against Vladimir Putin, either," Christie said. The governor's comments were a veiled rebuke to the GOP's frontrunners, Donald Trump...

    The Council on the American Islamic Relations (CAIR) excoriated many of its critics in their "Islamophobia" report, but the group also had a "Best List Inductees" which included New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. CAIR says the list was compiled as a way to recognize those who "deserve recognition for their outstanding contributions to pushing back against Islamophobic trends in 2011 and 2012." The report says Christie is receiving the accolade primarily for his nomination of a Muslim judge and statements in the ensuing controversy: Following Islamophobic criticism of his nomination of Sohail Mohammed as a New Jersey Superior Court judge,...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says GOP front-runner Donald Trump must decide "how serious a candidate he wants to be," after failing to correct a questioner who said President Obama was a Muslim and not a U.S. citizen. "I wouldn't have permitted that," Christie responded when asked how he would have handled the same situation. "I would correct him. I'd say that the president's a Christian and he was born in this country. Those two things are self-evident." Thursday night in New Hampshire, in front of about 3,000 fans, the first questioner told Trump, "We have a problem in this...

    I’m just counting the days until this particular battle shows up at the federal level. (As you’ll see in a moment, I’m not sure if that’s even possible, but if it is, the Justice Department will figure out a way.) Legislators in New Jersey passed a bill (for the second time) which, if signed into law, would allow transgender individuals to alter their birth certificates to reflect their “new” gender of choice. And for the second straight time, Christie broke out the veto pen. For the second time in 18 months, Governor Christie on Monday vetoed a bill that...

    Governor Christie spent the past week on the campaign trail hitting key issues that are popular with the conservative voters who likely hold the key to his success as a Republican candidate for president. His tour through the early voting states, which includes return trips to New Hampshire and Iowa this week, comes as his campaign and a super PAC supporting his candidacy are spending a combined $1 million to run political ads nationally on Fox News that show Christie criticizing President Obama over the Iran nuclear deal, just as the next round of horse-race polls are being conducted.

    Fourth of July parade just ended. 81F and cloudy, fairly humid. We make the politicians go last. Lots of O'Malley and Sanders signs in the small Democrat section. One Hillary sign, holder ran by fast. Krispy Kreme came next, with about 40 sign holders. Walked down the double yellow line waving, eyes straight ahead. Looked like he couldn't wait to get away. I knew he was big, but OMG is he big. Surprised he made it up the last hill. Rubio was next. Shook every hand, selfies with every teenaged girl, kissed every baby. Looks young and vigorous. Hung around...

    After the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage, many Republican 2016 candidates tacked to the right, vowing to fight for religious freedom next. Everyone from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee promised social conservatives they'd use their increasingly limited means to prevent religiously conservative government employees from being forced to issue same-sex marriage licenses, or to grant protections for religiously conservative wedding photographers from having to shoot a same-sex wedding. Let them fight over those folks, says Chris Christie. And he might be onto something. At a New Hampshire town hall Wednesday night, the New Jersey Republican...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie faulted his party Wednesday for its unwelcoming tone at times to minority voters. In a speech to a Latino Coalition small business conference, the potential Republican presidential contender also boasted about getting 51 percent of the Hispanic vote in his re-election as governor. Christie portrays himself as the kind of Republican who can attract females, blacks, Hispanics and other voters who are normally drawn to Democrats. …
