 Celebrating 15 Years Protecting Children's Health & the Environment

 The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®  - When you are among the first voices to speak out on an issue, it’s difficult to know if anyone is listening. When I founded The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center fifteen years ago, concern about our children's health being impacted by toxic exposures in the environment was not the hot button, trendy issue it is today.  Read more...

 

Deirdre's Dish Pick

 

 Imus Ranch Alfredo Sauce: Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys - Alfredo sauce is traditionally served over pasta, but it’s equally delicious on top of rice or vegetables.  The original version is made with heavy cream and full-fat cheese.  Ours is just as delicious, but a great deal healthier.

The Imus Ranch Foundation

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

    Mark Levin Momentarily Emerges From His Bunker To Hurl Insults

    Mark Levin, the conservative radio host deemed "The Great One" by Sean Hannity, started in on Imus almost immediately this morning, saying, "It looks like a four year-old tied your tie." The knot, he observed, was so big that Imus should wear a red nose with it.

    Having sufficiently insulted the cancer-battling host of this show, Levin moved on to insulting President Obama and Attorney General Holder for their decision to try several 9/11 plotters in civilian court in New York City.

    "This guy Obama and his buddy Holder are so ideologically driven, they are so radical, that I can't think of a single defense for what's been done here," said Levin. "None."

    Obama, he added, has no desire to win this war. "Do you realize no president in American history has ever dragged terrorists from foreign soil into the United States to try them in civilian courts, and then pretend we're going to apply the Constitution?" Levin asked. "Which we're clearly not going to do, or this guy gets off in the first hour of the hearing."

    Former Congressman John LeBoutillier had suggested to Imus that some "wacko jurist who wants a book deal or his own reality show" could intentionally hang the jury. Levin, however, was too distracted by an image on the television.

    "That's a great picture of John LeBoutillier there," he said with pervasive sarcasm. "We all know what he looks like! Your graphics department is just terrific. You have a picture of me that's got to be at least five years old!"

    Levin then reminded the audience that the United States is at war, whether Obama and his leftist buddies believe it or not. "I know if we're hit again, they're going to blame us like they always do," said Levin. "There's something we did, something wrong with our policy. But we are at war!"

    In case it was unclear, Levin does not like Obama. "I know what he's doing is extremely detrimental to this nation," he said. "I don't know him personally, but his policies suck, so I don't like him personally. He is an incompetent ideologue, and an egomaniac."

    Attempting to change the subject before Levin exploded, Imus asked why the President traveled to Asia this week. Levin supposed he was visiting all the regimes he admires. And by the way, he added, enough with the bowing, Mr. President.

    "When he does that, he doesn't represent me, he doesn't represent my grandfather, who fought in Guam and Iwo Jima, he doesn't represent my great uncle who fought at Guadalcanal, he doesn't represent my father who was in the Army Air Corps in World War II," said Levin. "He doesn't represent my family, and he doesn't represent a lot of families in this country."

    He also doesn't represent Imus, who, in case anyone out there doesn't know, played the bugle in the Marine Corps. And whose tie was still the topic of conversation 15 minutes later, with Charles chiming that the knot should be "nice, and small, and tight."

    To which Imus astutely replied, "Just like your wiener."
