Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Another Black Monday

Fox News Business Channel’s Stuart Varney reacts to Monday’s 1089-point collapse in early trading, the biggest-ever drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The Dow recovered slightly, closing the day with a 588-point drop. A visibly excited Varney tells viewers, “I do believe the circuit breakers kick in if you hit 7 percent. We’re at 6.4 percent now, if we hit 7 percent the action closes down on the New York Stock Exchange.” The market eventually reached 6.62 percent, but rallied late, avoiding a shutdown.

One Nation Under God

Speaking to a men’s breakfast at a prominent church in Daytona, Florida, Wild Bill issued a challenge to a typical American church in light of the country’s fall from moral grace. “I challenged the men to be men of God, to do their duty as ambassadors of Christ,” he says. “The Christian church withdrew from the American culture, and guess what took over. I told the men that Ronald Reagan once said that, ‘If we ever forget that we are a nation under God, we will be a nation gone under.”

Obamas Out to Destroy Hillary

Political pundit Dick Morris says that there’s no doubt Hillary Clinton can trace her current political chaos to the Obamas. Just check out the evidence, he says. “Based on my experience in politics and in Washington with a Democratic president, you cannot have so many people climbing all over the Hillary case and hitting her and leaking stuff and contradicting her and pursuing investigations without at least the tacit approval of the Democratic president,” Morris says. “It just wouldn’t happen that way.” Listen to Morris further explain his thoughts in this edition of Dick Morris Reports.

Dinos: Cold Or Warm Blooded?

Scientists have debated for decades whether dinosaurs were warm-blooded creatures or cold-blooded killers. Host Michael Aranda says that it turns out dinos were somewhere in the middle. He helps solve the metabolism puzzle for these magnificent creatures in this edition of SciShow.

U.S. On Greek Economic Path

With the United States spending millions more than it takes in, carelessly printing money to prop up its bond and stock markets and driving the nation’s debt to the point of no return, we are facing dire economic woes, says Doug Casey, wildly successful head of Casey Research. “The United States has been going downhill since the McKinley regime,” the bearish Casey says. “Technology has been getting better, but from a philosophical point of view it’s been declining since then. And in actual economic terms, in terms of what the average guy is able to do, we’ve been going downhill since the mid-’70s.” Casey explains further to Reason TV host Matt Welch, and offers some nuggets of optimism going forward.

Lame Congress Strikes Again

“President Obama announced new restrictions on greenhouse gas omissions,” reports Jodi Miller. “As expected, Republicans in Congress are vowing to fight the plan–a virtual guarantee that they will do absolutely nothing.” Miller also zeroes in on Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Joe Biden, Cuba, Rick Perry and Ray Rice in this edition of NewsBusted.

No Doubt Slavery Led to War

Many people still believe that the Civil War wasn’t about slavery, but about something totally different. They can’t fathom that the citizens of southern states were willing to fight and die to preserve a morally repugnant institution. Some argue the cause of the war was economic. The North was industrial and the South was agrarian. Is this what brought both sides to war? Or was it because the South believed strongly in preserving states rights? Colonel Ty Seidule, professor of history at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, debunks all these beliefs. “The evidence is clear and overwhelming,” says Seidule. “Slavery was, by a wide margin, the single-most important cause of the Civil War for both sides.” Seidule elaborates in this edition of Prager University.

Who’s Best On Foreign Policy?

General Hugh Shelton, 14th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff discusses foreign policy and the presidential candidates with Newsmax TV host Ed Berliner, host of “The Hard Line.” Shelton also discusses his recent oped in the Miami Herald titled, “Don’t Empower Iran’s Tyrants.”

Betrayed By the GOP

Joe Dan Gorman admits he was one of the cheerleaders when Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell and Republicans won the Senate in a landslide, giving the GOP control of Congress. But ohhh what a letdown it’s been for Gorman and conservatives. “Our Republican Party, they’re not just allowing the Democrats to steamroll our Bill of Rights, they’re helping them,” Gorman says. “We’re sick of being lied to, but now, we’re scared for our children.” Join Gorman as he explains further in this enlightening edition of Intellectual Froglegs.
