Ted Cruzing for Tea Party Vote

Political pundit Dick Morris analyzes the race for leadership of the Tea Party and the likely adversaries in the looming GOP presidential race, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. Although Morris has Rand’s father, Ron, on his mind in the early frames of the video, he opines that Cruz appears to have the upper hand for Tea Party support in what he calls “the first round” of what should be many confrontations leading up to the 2016 primary election.

Loudmouth Harry

Wild Bill is calling out Nevada Senator Harry Reid for his despicable comments over the Bundy Ranch standoff with the feds. “We are in a battle for the heart and soul of America, and this battle is so important that the very survival of American freedom is at stake,” he says. Wild Bill points out that this isn’t the first time that Reid has hurled scurrilous bombshells at America and it probably won’t be the last.

Jeb Gaining Traction

So what’s all the fuss about Jeb Bush? The latest rising star of the Bush clan is raising eyebrows, and many political-savvy pundits are already handing him the GOP nomination in the 2016 presidential election. His likely opponent? Another Clinton. Hillary, that is. Conservative radio talk show host Andrew Wilkow discusses the looming presidential race with Republican strategist Dee Dee Benkie and Democratic strategist Steve Leser on The Blaze News Network.

 

Government Destined to Fail

From health care to the workplace, government’s sticky fingers are increasingly interferring with our lives. Professor of Law Emeritus, Peter Schuck, author of Why Government Fails So Often: And How It Can Do Better,” explains the growing intrusion into our lives and the ramifications therein in this presentation to the Cato Institute.

Beyond the Sebelius Resignation

The comedy of errors, in which Obamacare has evolved, closed one of its most embarrasing chapters with the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The secretary’s ineptitute, including a disastrous rollout of the Affordable Care Act website despite spending nearly $700 million on the project, has sent strong tremors through the Democrat Party as the 2014 midterm elections loom in November. But Next News Network host Gary S. Franchi Jr. warns us all to tread lightly with President Obama’s appointment of Sylvia Burwell to replace Sebelius. Franchi says it’s important to consider Burwell’s pedigree. “While Americans are hearing a lot about the sins of Sebelius, it may be more important to focus on who’s been nominated to replace her,” he says.

Voter Fraud Surfaces in N.C.

A North Carolina study has uncovered strong evidence of voter fraud in its state. Referencing the study, political pundit Dick Morris says it was discovered that 35,000 North Carolinians voted in North Carolina and some other state as well. In addition, Morris says, the study found that 100 dead residents voted.

A King-Size IRS Mess in D.C.

Joe Dan Gorman is seething. And he’s directing his rage at the Internal Revenue Service. Talk about spending your children’s future today. The IRS has wasted away nearly $50 million in conferences and parties over a two-year period, and tossed away more of our cash on in-house video-production parodies of Star Trek and Gilligan’s Island. Mix in a couple of scandals and you have a king-size mess in Washington. “With all these scandals, they’re still paying out $62 million in bonuses,” Gorman says. “No accountability, it’s a joke. They’re a rogue organization.”  In this edition of Intellectual Froglegs, Gorman also touches on President’s Obama’s meeting with the Pope, Michelle Obama’s trip to China and unrigging the vote.

Obamacare’s Phony Numbers

Political pundit Dick Morris proclaims if ever there was a scandalous case of fuzzy math, it comes from the White House release of the Obamacare numbers. Morris, in this edition of Dick Morris Reports, gets to work on the real calculations and comes up with 4.2 million Americans signed by the new law, not the 7.1 million released by the Obama Administration. “Barely a dent in the 48 million Americans who were uninsured,” Morris says. “But then you have to add back in the 2 or 3 million Americans who had their policies cancelled and are now uninsured and chose not to go back into the Obamacare system to find coverage. And when you put that together, you have almost no net decrease in the uninsured as the result of Obamacare.”

The Proof’s in the Pudding

When Obamacare registration miraculously reached the magic number of 7 million in what the White House called a late surge, President Obama didn’t waste any time “spiking the ball.” But hold your horses! The president’s victory lap appears to be a bit premature. When you take a closer look at the number, many questions arise. How many of those signed up have actually paid their first premium? How many of the registrants were previously uninsured? And finally, how many of the enrollees were people who were safely insured, but lost their policies due to the Affordable Care Act? Host Megyn Kelly of “The Kelly File” on Fox News discusses the dilemma with Fox chief White House correspondent Ed Henry and senior political analyst Brit Hume.

Healthcare Premiums Will Soar

Dick Morris says batten down the hatches and your wallets, and prepare for an enormous increase in healthcare premiums in 2014. Morris adds the average increase will be in the 40-60 percent range and, in some cases, will double and triple. “The reason for the increase in premiums is first of all, fewer young people have signed up for Obamacare and therefore the risk pools are much more costly than the insurers thought when they originally made their estimate,” Morris says. “Secondly, the federal government has cut the subsidy to insurance companies. Also, the insurance companies low-balled the premium estimate when Obamacare started because they wanted to sign people up.” In this episode of Dick Morris Reports, Morris explains the ramifications of the fiasco going forward.
