Rein in the NSA

Political commentator Dick Morris says we desperately need to rein in the NSA. The House last week voted to tone down surveillance conducted by the NSA under the Patriot Act by limiting collection of phone data from Americans. The bill–the USA Freedom Act–is currently making its way through the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is proposing a two-month extension of the law. Bad move, says Morris, as he explains in this edition of Dick Morris reports.

We Need Electoral College

So why does the United States use the Electoral College to elect our presidents instead of the popular vote? Author, lawyer and Electoral College expert Tara Ross says that to understand the Electoral College is to understand American democracy. She explains and tells us why it matters in this edition of Prager University.

Defending the Constitution

Joe Dan Gorman puts his muscle behind the first and second amendments, calling out the radical Muslims who made the mistake of interrupting the Draw Muhammad/Free Speech Event in Garland, Texas, recently. “The one thing they definitely learned was that Texas ain’t France,” Gorman says. “In Texas, we shoot back. The Garland attack is a reminder of why we have both a first and second amendment. The Muslims went there to challenge our first amendment and they were greeted by the second amendment.” Check out this edition of Intellectual Froglegs as Gorman opines on a variety of issues.

A Matter Of Experience

Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon, launched his first-ever run for public office recently, while Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard, enters the fray with only one political campaign under her belt. So this begs the question: Is experience a requirement for presidential hopefuls? The “Trifecta” crew of Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green provide analysis on this edition of PJTV.

Repeal of Obamacare Near

As America anxiously looks on, the King vs. Burwell case now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court could well be the death knell of the Affordable Care Act. “The case concerns the language in the Obamacare bill that says that subsidies are only available to those who get their health insurance through state exchanges,” says political pundit Dick Morris. A Supreme Court decision in favor of Obamacare foes will pave the way for Republicans in Congress to finally gut the bill. Morris explains.

Conservatism is Common Sense

Joe Dan Gorman says a recent Gallup Poll reveals that Americans prefer a gun in the house by a 63-30 percent margin because it’s safer. “See, we’re not a liberal country, we are a conservative country,” Joe Dan says. “And conservative means common sense basically. It’s just that these liberals are the loud-mouths and they have most of the microphones. They control the media, they control entertainment and, worst of all, now they control academia.” Gorman also opines on the Clinton atrocities, climate change and the debate of creationism vs. evolution in this edition of Intellectual Froglegs.

The Myth of Cool Commies

Che Guevera, a major figure in the Cuban Revolution of the late 1950s, advocated banning the free press and anything capitalist as he aided Fidel Castro ascend to power in the now communist state. He later admitted to executing many Cubans by firing squad, not knowing if they were fully guilty. Yet Guevara continues to be venerated by progressives. Michael Moynihan, of The Daily Beast, joins Liberty Pen’s John Stossel to discuss the myths that continue to romanticize Guevara and communism.

Can GOP Move to the Center?

While the GOP is adamant that the party must elect a strong conservative to have any chance of winning the White House, political pundit Dick Morris suggests a move to the center of the political spectrum on some issues may be more beneficial. “The argument that’s being made about the 2016 election is that Republicans have a choice,” Morris says. “Stay over way to the right and generate turnout by enthusing the base, or compromise on crucial positions, move to the center and go after the swing voter. That’s a stupid false choice.” There’s a better way, Morris insists, such as addressing three key issues: immigration, attacking Wall Street and gun control. He explains in this edition of Dick Morris Reports.

Another Taxing Clinton Problem

The firestorm over the Clintons accepting donations from foreign donors has taken a familiar twist. Now it seems the Clinton Foundation has failed to report some big-money donations, passing it off as an elementary mistake. “The depth and breadth of this is quite simple,” says political commentator and author Dinesh D’Souza. “And that is Article VI of the U.S. Constitution says rather clearly that government officials cannot take money from foreign governments in the form of presents or titles or honorary awards of any kind without the approval of Congress.” D’Souza elaborates further with host Dana Loesch in this edition of The Blaze.

Will Hillary Cash Out?

Political pundit Dick Morris says we’ve become used to a myriad of Hillary Clinton scandals that wash off her back and never have any political consequences. But a looming money scandal documented in Peter Schweitzer’s new book, Clinton Cash, have ignited the rumor mills and even has Morris a tad discombobulated in his presentation of this video in the latest edition of Dick Morris Reports.
