Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Native Americans Steamed

Jodi Miller reports, “At the White House President Obama met with leaders of American Indian tribes. “But Native Americans are very upset. This country used to belong to them, now it belongs to China.” In this edition of NewsBusted, Miller also features Candy Crowley, Cher, Social Security, Eric Garner, Ferguson, Missouri, and McDonald’s McRib.

Gridlock is Good

Political commentator and investigative reporter John Stossel unabashedly admits that we’re better off when we have gridlock in Congress. Imagine that.
“Bipartisanship brings us some of our worst laws,” says Stossel. “People say that they hate Congress, and they are right to hate Congress. It’s filled with pandering opportunists, that when those opportunists get together in bipartisanship, they pass awful rules.” Listen in to the rest of Stossel’s logic.

Rules For a Moral World

Humanity has everything it needs to create a good world. And we’ve had it for 3,000 years in the form of 10 basic instructions called The Ten Commandments. Dennis Prager explains how the Commandments created Western civilization and remain relevant in today’s world in this edition of Prager University.

Rich Oprah Turns to Race Card

Alfonzo Rachel says Oprah Winfrey is whining about racism and raising the ceiling on the race card. It seems that Ms. Winfrey made the majority of her megabucks from her white fans, but she claims it’s those same supporters and racism that are causing President Obama to fail. Oh no, it couldn’t be his policies. “The race card is the card of the cowardly,” says Rachel. “They’re too afraid to admit they failed. And they protect themselves by accusing people of being racist.” Tune in as Rachel turns the tables on Winfrey and goes after liberals and the inherently racist Democrat Party.

Debunking Myths About Sleep

There are many myths about sleep, such as your body will get used to sleep over time. Not true. In reality, it’s not possible to adjust to less sleep. Side effects include stress and less concentration. In addition, less sleep can result in cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Join Elliott Morgan in this edition of “Misconceptions” on Mental Floss, as he debunks some other myths about sleep.

We Want Joe!

U.S. Representative Trey Gowdy said recently that the best argument against impeaching President Obama is Vice-President Joe Biden. “I agreed with him at first. Now, Mr. Gowdy and I finally disagree on something,” says Wild Bill. “Obama has become so radically anti-American that Joe Biden, ahem, would be a step up.” Check out the video as Wild Bill explains.

Obama’s War On Marriage

It appears that America’s unmarried poor have figured out a way to game the system, with plenty of help from their hero, President Obama. Their solution–stay single and reap a shower of entitlements. “There are now no fewer than 70 programs in the U.S. budget comprising a trillion dollars of spending, which are means tested. And all of those programs penalize marriage,” says Dick Morris. It’s a known fact that once you sign those marriage vows, your income increases and cuts you out of the entitlement gravy train. Morris explains the predicament in this edition of Dick Morris Reports.

The Real President Or Imposter?

“Following the grand jury’s decision in Ferguson, Missouri, President Obama said we are a nation built on the rule of law,” Jodi Miller reports. “Then Secret Service agents wrestled him to the ground and said, ‘What have you done to the real President Obama?'” Miller also takes a look at Black Friday shoppers, Chuck Hagel, U.N. Peacekeepers, Ray Rice and Obamacare in this edition of NewsBusted.

Garner Death Troubles O’Reilly

A Staten Island, New York, grand jury refused to indict a police officer in the chokehold-death of Eric Garner, a black man accused of selling “loose” cigarettes (untaxed cigarettes), putting the New York City area on alert for a Ferguson, Missouri-like incident. Interestingly, a video of the chokehold incident has surfaced, stirring the ire of O’Reilly. “Upon seeing the video and hearing Garner say he couldn’t breathe, I was extremely troubled,” O’Reilly says. “I would have loosened my grip. I desperately wish the officer would have done that.” O’Reilly elaborates in his “Talking Points” segment and speaks with radio talk show host and author Tavis Smiley about the event.

‘Net and Web Not One in Same

One of the biggest misconceptions floating out there is that the Internet and the World Wide Web are one and the same. Not true. Invented in 1969, the Internet is the network of hardware and software that connects all of us. The World Wide Web was invented in 1990 and is what you find on your browser, such as Safari, Chrome or Firefox to search sites like this one. In other words, the Internet makes the Web possible. Join Elliott Morgan as he details nine other technology misconceptions in this edition of Mental Floss.
