Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Order in the Court

In 2005, a man sued a dry cleaners for losing his pants. The stunner was that the man asked for $54 million in damages, his case hinging on a sign at the front of the store that read “satisfaction guaranteed” and that he had been defrauded by their incompetence. Needless to say, the judge chided the man, made him pay the legal fees for the other side and warned him to never again bring a case claiming his pants are worth 50 million times their actual value. Check out the details on 14 other strange courtroom cases in this edition of Danger Dolan.

Who Are the Real Racists?

It’s a given that conservatives are accused by progressives on a daily basis as being racist. Amazingly, a large number of the attacks are coming from high-profile liberals, such as Oprah Winfrey, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and Congressman Steve Israel. Are these accusers mostly foolish and stupid, or is it political posturing. Derryck Green of Project 21 analyzes the situation and provides some provocative answers in this edition of Prager University.

Obummer Obama in Hawaii

Spanning the globe this past week, Jodi Miller reports, “The Honolulu City Council has withdrawn a proposal to name a popular beach after President Obama. So instead, they will name an unpopular beach after him.” Also on Miller’s radar is the Chinese economy, Nielsen TV Ratings, Speaker John Boehner, Senator Mark Udall and the rising cost of coffee in this edition of NewsBusted.

Defending the Frack Attack

Fracking protests from looney progressives have taken left-wing fanaticism to a ridiculous level. Among their refrains are that fracking is causing genetic mutation of our children and that is causes earthquakes. Their solution: fracking bans and more government intervention. Talk about delirious. In an interview with John Stossel in this edition of Liberty Pen, Steve Everley of Energy in Depth says, “Look at what the Obama Administration has said about this. EPA has said there is nothing inherently dangerous in fracking that sound engineering principles can’t fix.” He says the oil and gas boom has been great for workers and consumers, and bringing government into the mix is a big mistake.

Why Politics is So Partisan

It doesn’t take a genius to note that in the last two decades, politics on Capitol Hill has become extremely partisan. Dick Morris asks, “What happened to the days when Republicans sometimes voted liberal, Democrats sometimes voted conservative and the president could reach across party lines and get support to pass his programs?” Morris says the cause of all the venom in politics is reapportionment, and to some extent, the influence of national money. But the solution to all the derisiveness, Morris adds, might well come from our friends in California.

The Ebola Disaster

It’s official: The Ebola Outbreak has infiltrated the United States and Americans are outraged. Alex Jones reports that a second nurse has contracted the deadly virus, while the Obama Administration continues to play games with political correctness and political expediency. Meanwhile the sophomoric blunders continue, such as bodily fluids from infected victims left unprotected in open areas of emergency rooms, insufficient hazmat suits for healthcare workers and busted protocal throughout the system. Jones breaks down the entire fiasco in this edition of The Alex Jones Show.

First Things First For Obama

“The Syrian border town of Kobani is about to fall to the Islamic State,” Jodi Miller reports. “The White House says President Obama is aware of the situation and will deal with it between fund-raisers.” In this entertaining edition of NewsBusted, Miller also touches on Michelle Obama, Los Angeles, San Gabriel Mountains, Leon Panetta and Senator Harry Reid.

American Confidence Waning

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s riveting interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, following the release of his new book Worthy Fights, has the White House on its heels. Among the pull-quotes from Panetta’s book: “He relies on the logic of a law professor rather than a passionate believer. He avoids the battle, complains and misses opportunities.” Or, “He kind of lost his way.” Couple these comments with West African immigrants invading our porous southern border, ISIS beheadings and Ebola outbreaks, all while our illustrious president is giving speeches at $10,000-a-plate fund-raisers, it’s no wonder Americans have lost confidence in our Commander in Chief. Dana Loesch of The Blaze takes a deeper look at the situation and explains why our confidence is waning.

Beware of Creepy Spiders

If you’re not afraid of spiders, you might well be after watching this video. For instance, the bite of the Australian Funnel Web Spider is strong enough to pierce shoes. It’s venom has killed children in 15 minutes. This is just one of 10 terrifying facts about spiders in this edition of Alltime 10s.

Smartphones A Threat to FBI

FBI Director James Comey told 60 Minutes that he’s worried that the new wave of smartphones are allowing users to encrypt their data. In other words, they’re locking out the FBI. Comey says it’s putting people beyond the law. But is it really an assault on our freedom as protected by the Fourth Amendment? PJTV’s “Trifecta” crew of Stephen Green, Bill Whittle and Scott Ott discuss the delicate issue of personal freedom versus government intrusion.
