Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Tea Party to the Rescue

Following the landslide victories in the 2008 elections, the Democrat Party received top-heavy majorities in both chambers of Congress in addition to the presidency. This, of course, led President Obama to unleash perhaps the most far-reaching and radical agenda as any in American history. But as the 2010 midterm elections loomed, along came the birth of the Tea Party and an about-face on Capitol Hill. In this edition of Dick Morris Reports, Morris dissects how the Tea Party dealt Obama a  near-fatal blow, effectively shutting down his left-wing rampage.

 

President set forth to lay out the most

Peace Through Strength

With America’s foreign policy seemingly challenged on all fronts in recent months, we come full circle to the lingering question: Why must our military maintain its dominance? In this edition of Prager University, renowned British historian Andrew Roberts tackles the consequences of a weak America versus a strong America and what each means to peace and prosperity in our world.

Kids Say the Darndest Things

Sit back and listen to the incomparable Art Linkletter and a segment of his wildly popular Kids Say the Darndest Things, which aired on his radio show and television series from 1945 to 1969. Many of Linkletter’s segments were routinely rerun on a show by the same name on CBS hosted by Bill Cosby. Don’t forget to check us out here on LOL next Tuesday for another taste of the lighter side of life.

Fund-raisers and Golf

“President Obama has attended nearly 400 fund-raisers since taking office,” Jodi Miller reports. “Wow! It’s amazing he finds time to play golf.” Miller also gets the blood flowing with features on John Boehner, record cold in Australia, Al Gore and Joe Biden in this edition of NewsBusted.

The Future is Here

Fasten your seat belts world, because futuristic technology is about to blow your mind. Try driverless automobiles. The concept is right around the corner. Fact is, it’s already here. Google’s driverless cars have already driven 700,000 autonomous miles without a single accident, and a recently introduced prototype can operate safely without a steering wheel, acceleration or brake pedals and not a smidgen of human intervention. Some of these revolutionary autos are expected to hit the market as early as 2015. Hybrid Librarian lifts the lid on nine other mind-blowing technologies about to emerge.

Crash Blame Game Begins

The blame game has begun in the aftermath of the Malaysia Airlines MH17 tragedy. Ukrainian officials are pointing the finger at Russian separatists in their country for shooting down the commercial aircraft, while Russia is adamant that it was Ukraine. Meanwhile, there is growing concern that evidence from the crash site may disappear or be tampered with, sending more allegations flying from both sides. Susan Ormiston, senior correspondent for CBC’s The National, fills us in on the latest from Ukraine.

.50-Caliber Weapons on Border

While President Obama lounges at Camp David, turmoil on the southern border is reaching a fever pitch. In a bold move unfolding over the weekend, drug cartels fired on U.S. Border Patrol agents with .50-caliber weapons, escalating what has been a never-ending disaster. And if that wasn’t enough, while the gunfire ensued illegal immigrants continued their trek across the border, this time on Jet Skis, believe it or not. Fox & Friends weekend crew Heather Nauert, Jon Scott and Peter Johnson Jr. discuss the turn of events.

Some Pretty Dumb Laws

After festival revelers made a complete mess of a 1996 festival with Silly String in Southington, Connecticut, town officials clamped down in a hurry. The partygoers sprayed Silly String on police, marching bands and cheerleaders, prompting the community to ban the sale of Silly String in shops. This is just one of 15 dumb laws around the world uncovered by the adventurous Danger Dolan. Are they dumb laws, or just a bit silly? Check out the other 14 and decide for yourself.

America Needs a Challenge

On a pleasantly warm afternoon at Rice University in Houston in 1962, our youthful, brash president challenged America. President John F. Kennedy laid out the country’s plan to put a man on the moon. “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the others things, not because they are easy but because they are hard,” he said. That was 52 years ago. Where have the challenges gone and what do we strive for today? PJTV’s, Bill Whittle says, “Nothing we do is audacious anymore. Everything we hear from this president (Obama), and to be fair, for many, many years before he arrived, is hectoring and prissy and trivial and beneath us.” Check out this edition of “Afterburner” as Whittle eloquently dishes out a mix of passion and intellect.

Robo Friends Have Arrived

Eat your cartoon heart out George Jetson. In this edition of SourceFed, host Trisha Hershberger tells us that the world’s first robot assistant has arrived. Maybe not quite as sophisticated as Rosie the Robot of The Jetsons fame, but Hershberger says, “The reality of a somewhat affordable home robot/assistant companion is on the horizon.” She says the robot will come with a speedy processor, voice and facial recognition, sound isolation technology and an LCD touch screen. What else can we ask for?
