Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Liberalism Or Infantilism?

Political commentator Bill Whittle says people who call themselves liberals have bumper-sticker philosophies that are liberal. “They’re not even leftists,” he says. “They’re infantile.” Whittle dissects one of these undeservedly self-righteous positions and compares the modern liberal to the real deal in this edition of “Firewall” on Truth Revolt.

Obama Continues Defiance

Even though the Obama Administration and the Democrats received a shellacking in the Midterm elections, our Commander in Chief is turning a blind eye to it all. “You’d think after a wildly lopsided election, we could forget about politics for a while,” says Joe Dan Gorman of Intellectual Froglegs. “But no, Obama the Destroyer will not be denied. Obama gives a speech like he won. After the brutal shellacking that he took, he says he heard the two-thirds of America that did not vote.” Tune in as Gorman analyzes Obama’s defiance and the recently ignited healthcare controversy, starring MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber.

China Shames Obama Again

President Obama has been schooled by the Chinese again. The Commander in Chief seemingly came out on the short end of a climate change agreement with China at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, says political pundit Dick Morris. “The U.S. and China basically agreed that the United States would dramatically curb its carbon emissions and that China wouldn’t do a damn thing until 2030, at which time it would begin to curb its carbon emissions.” Watch the video as Morris fills in the details.

Another Obamacare Firestorm

There’s a new firestorm brewing in the Obama Administration, and it’s not surprising that the monstrosity that is Obamacare is at center stage again. Original Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, an economics professor at MIT, is on the hot seat for some unfortunate comments he made about the passage of the Affordable Care Act in October 2013, calling American voters stupid among them. Gruber admits to the administration taking some artistic license in crafting the bill to squeeze it through Congress. “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes,” Gruber told a health care conference at the University of Pennsylania a year ago. “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, that was really critical to getting the thing to pass.” MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow grills Gruber over his comments in this edition of Truth Revolt.

One Last Chance

Now that the political smoke has cleared, Wild Bill has a sobering directive for the GOP, who now control both chambers of Congress after sizable victories in the Midterm elections. “Obamaism has spread like political Ebola and, under John Boehner’s leadership, the Republicans hardly even tried to stop it,” Wild Bill says. “We the people are giving the Republicans one last chance to prove to us that they’re capable of governing in a smart, conservative manner.” Listen to the rest of Wild Bill’s admonition.

Compromise Or More Gridlock?

Fox News’ Campaign Cowboys–anchor Chris Wallace, Republican strategist Karl Rove and Democratic strategist Joe Trippi–debate what the future holds for the country in light of the GOP landslide victory in the Midterm Elections. With the Republicans firmly in control of Congress, will compromise dominate the final two years of the Obama Administration or are we buckled in for more gridlock? Join the Fox News political cowpokes as they address Obamacare, the Keystone XL Pipeline, immigration reform and tax reform.

GOP Makes a Statement

The American electorate delivered a strong referendum on President Obama’s policies, riding a wave of anger and discontent to hand the GOP control of the United States Senate. The GOP tsunami also helped Republicans claim an additional 10-12 seats in the House of Representatives and significant gains in several governors’ races. USA Today analyzes the GOP victory.

Morris Cautious, But Confident

As we can all painfully remember, the last time Dick Morris predicted a Republican landslide, things didn’t turn out so well. With Americans heading to the polls today, Morris is not as bold as he was when predicting a Romney landslide victory in 2012, but he remains cautiously optimistic this time around. “I think the Republicans are very likely to win the Senate and most likely to pick up seven or eight seats,” Morris says. “But it’s important to realize that off-year election polling is almost always likely wrong … and almost always likely wrong in the same direction.” Tune in as Morris explains.

Food For Political Thought

Despite the progressive rhetoric of the last eight years, the Democrat Party has failed America. Since winning the presidency six years ago and both houses of Congress in 2006, the Democrats have crafted an agenda of failure. In this edition of Intellectual Froglegs, Joe Dan Gorman sets the record straight with his Democrat Progress Report. Says Gorman, “When the Democrats took control, we had a AAA credit rating. When the Democrats took control, there had been zero attacks on American soil since 9/11. When the Democrats took control, we had no beheadings in Oklahoma and we had no beheadings in New Jersey.” And on and on. But perhaps Gorman’s most salient point centers on the economy. While our lamestream media would have you believe that President Obama inherited a Bush economy, that simply isn’t true. Gorman argues that the Democrats assumed control of Congress in January 2007 with Senator Harry Reid leading the Senate and U.S. Reprentative Nancy Pelosi controlling the House. And unbeknownst to most, it is Congress that controls the purse strings, not the president. “So the fact is,” Gorman says, “Obama did not inherit a Bush economy, he inherited a Reid-Pelosi economy.” Soak in Gorman’s remaining thoughts as you head to the polls today in this very important election.

Hillary Pulls An Obama

“Businesses and corporations don’t create jobs.” Can you guess who made this ludicrous proclamation in a recent speech? As much as you want to answer, “President Obama,” the correct response is Hillary Clinton. “That philosophy is embedded in Obama saying, ‘You didn’t build it’ … and in the title of Hillary’s book, It Takes a Village. That communitarian approach completely belies the role of individual initiative, individualism and the aggressive creativity of American business.”
