Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Banned in America

From banning plastic bags in many areas throughout the country to making tanning devices illegal in California, 2014 is turning out to be a BANner year. The Blaze’s Amy Holmes takes a closer look at various items that were banned in various parts of the country in this edition of “Hot List.”

The End Of Our Rock-Star Prez

With his approval numbers dove-tailing and still obstinately pushing his progressive garbage down the throats of his flock, President Obama is about to meet his political maker in 11 days as Republicans are poised to win the Senate and control Congress. What will become of Obama’s final two years? Will he make an effort and compromise, or will he hold scornfully tight to his veto power? The “Trifecta” crew of Bill Whittle, Stephen Green and Scott Ott discuss the new political frontier which is about to unfold.

Obama’s Ebola Failure

Despite the stark differences in opinion among Democrats, Republicans and Independents, there’s an issue that comes along once in a long while that unites us all. The threat of an Ebola pandemic is one of them and the majority of Americans agree that a ban on West Africans traveling to America is a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, says Dick Morris, our illustrious president is flouting any such notion. “The entire country understands the need for a flight ban,” Morris says. “Dozens of nations have enacted flight bans on West African travelers, including about 10 African countries that have adopted it. But the United States refuses to do that.” In this edition of Dick Morris Reports, Morris explains why President Obama’s failure to listen to Americans is a huge mistake.

Our Politically Correct Military

Investigative reporter John Stossel says he’s happy with our military keeping us safe from foreign attack and satisfied that we’re–for the most part–at peace in this ever-crazy world. But Stossel points out that it seems that our military is more preoccupied with environmentalism and political correctness. Afghanistan war veteran Aaron MacLean joins Stossel in this edition of Liberty Pen to discuss if it’s appropriate for our military to pursue green energy schemes and whether it is the proper venue to conduct experiments on political correctness.

The Sky is Not Really Blue

Shockingly, the sky is not blue and the sun isn’t yellow. “The sky is not really blue,” says Henry Reich of Minute Physics. “It’s a stage upon which all colors dance. It’s mostly transparent air that, at best, is the color of what light it scatters.” Tune in as Reich explains the grand ballet of light in our universe.

Trapped Behind Enemy Lines

Many patriotic Democrats who believe in God and the Constitution have been shoved aside by their party. Says Wild Bill, “The Democrat Party of today is not the party that my grandpa belonged to. What the modern Democrat Party stands for would nauseate World War II Democrats.” Spurred from a letter from a Democrat patriot, Wild Bill suggests launching a Democrat Wing of the Tea Party. Listen to his logic in this edition of Wild Bill for America.

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.
