Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Evolving into the Future

The rapid advancement of technology will play a large role on how we evolve as human beings. For instance, our future relatives will more than likely have eyes that become unnervingly larger and blink sideways to avoid cosmic rays. They will also grow as we colonize alien planets in dimmer environments. Discover nine more evolutions to the human race in this edition of Alltime 10s.

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.

Forbes: Putin Most Powerful

Forbes magazine has ranked Russian president Vladimir Putin the world’s most powerful person. President Obama came in second,” Jodi Miller reports. “But it’s really not fair, because in Russia being president is a fulltime job.” Miller also features illegal border crossers, TSA, Kim Kardashian, Willie Nelson and Bruce Jenner in this edition of NewsBusted.

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.

PC Schools Overreacting

A 7-year-old in Maryland was suspended from school for pointing a Pop Tart at another student and making gun noises. In Virginia Beach, Va., a 13-year-old boy and his friends were suspended from school for playing with toy guns on private property. And in New Jersey, a 13-year-old was suspended from school for twirling a pencil that other students say looked like a gun. Patrice Lee, of the Independent Women’s Forum, tells Liberty Pen’s John Stossel that the politically correct government school system’s reaction on these cases borders on nitwittery. “What we’re seeing here is an overreaction by school administrators and people who are trying to stop what could be harmful actions on the part of the young kids.”

Baby It’s Hot Down There

Lord William Thompson Kelvin, of absolute temperature fame, attempted and failed to determine why the heat of the Earth increased exponentially the deeper you descended. He theorized that Earth actually started off hot and had been cooling off ever since. Unfortunately for Kelvin, he failed to factor in radioactivity in the Earth’s core. In this edition of Minute Earth, Emily Elert digs deeply into what really keeps the Earth’s core toasty.

Weaponizing the Ebola Virus

Ebola has a higher fatality rate than any other disease, so why wouldn’t weaponizing the virus be a priority of terrorists? Many opine that it might just be a matter of time, and unfortunately, the United States is woefully prepared for such an attack. The Blaze talks to former Pentagon official Steven Bucci and former CIA Operations Officer Brian Fairchild, among other experts, about the looming reality of Ebola on the battlefield.

The Science of Sleep

Not surprisingly, one of the world’s most searched questions on Google is, “How can I fall asleep.” And that includes includes queries from 60 million Americans. Michael Aranda gets us some answers in this educational edition of SciShow.

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.
