Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Why Politics is So Partisan

It doesn’t take a genius to note that in the last two decades, politics on Capitol Hill has become extremely partisan. Dick Morris asks, “What happened to the days when Republicans sometimes voted liberal, Democrats sometimes voted conservative and the president could reach across party lines and get support to pass his programs?” Morris says the cause of all the venom in politics is reapportionment, and to some extent, the influence of national money. But the solution to all the derisiveness, Morris adds, might well come from our friends in California.

The Ebola Disaster

It’s official: The Ebola Outbreak has infiltrated the United States and Americans are outraged. Alex Jones reports that a second nurse has contracted the deadly virus, while the Obama Administration continues to play games with political correctness and political expediency. Meanwhile the sophomoric blunders continue, such as bodily fluids from infected victims left unprotected in open areas of emergency rooms, insufficient hazmat suits for healthcare workers and busted protocal throughout the system. Jones breaks down the entire fiasco in this edition of The Alex Jones Show.

First Things First For Obama

“The Syrian border town of Kobani is about to fall to the Islamic State,” Jodi Miller reports. “The White House says President Obama is aware of the situation and will deal with it between fund-raisers.” In this entertaining edition of NewsBusted, Miller also touches on Michelle Obama, Los Angeles, San Gabriel Mountains, Leon Panetta and Senator Harry Reid.

American Confidence Waning

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s riveting interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, following the release of his new book Worthy Fights, has the White House on its heels. Among the pull-quotes from Panetta’s book: “He relies on the logic of a law professor rather than a passionate believer. He avoids the battle, complains and misses opportunities.” Or, “He kind of lost his way.” Couple these comments with West African immigrants invading our porous southern border, ISIS beheadings and Ebola outbreaks, all while our illustrious president is giving speeches at $10,000-a-plate fund-raisers, it’s no wonder Americans have lost confidence in our Commander in Chief. Dana Loesch of The Blaze takes a deeper look at the situation and explains why our confidence is waning.

Beware of Creepy Spiders

If you’re not afraid of spiders, you might well be after watching this video. For instance, the bite of the Australian Funnel Web Spider is strong enough to pierce shoes. It’s venom has killed children in 15 minutes. This is just one of 10 terrifying facts about spiders in this edition of Alltime 10s.

Smartphones A Threat to FBI

FBI Director James Comey told 60 Minutes that he’s worried that the new wave of smartphones are allowing users to encrypt their data. In other words, they’re locking out the FBI. Comey says it’s putting people beyond the law. But is it really an assault on our freedom as protected by the Fourth Amendment? PJTV’s “Trifecta” crew of Stephen Green, Bill Whittle and Scott Ott discuss the delicate issue of personal freedom versus government intrusion.

The Obama Mosque

Unconfirmed reports are circulating that President Obama promises to build a mosque on the 9/11 site in New York City before he leaves office. “If Obama really did go public with that then, in my opinion, he has announced that he is an Al-Qaeda sympathizer and is unfit to serve,” says Wild Bill. Get the full lowdown in this edition of Wild Bill for America.

Leno Changed Late-Night TV

Longtime producer of The Tonight Show Dave Berg praises Jay Leno for changing the politics of late-night television. Berg, in his new book, Behind the Curtain, tells Reason TV’s Alexis Garcia that, “Johnny (Carson) emphasized entertainers on his show. The strategy that we used to kind of expand and maybe get better ratings was to move beyond entertainers, and I think this is what distinguished Jay.” Find out more of what happened behind the scenes as Berg elaborates.

Obama vs. Reagan

Perhaps Ronald Reagan was the most accomplished, well-rounded and formidable Commander in Chief this nation has ever had. His patience and saavy delivered us from sure economic disaster. His stern hand sent a chilling message to the Communist East, bringing down the Berlin Wall and summarily ending the Cold War. Fast forward to today, and our country is again in jeopardy from terrorists who are over-running our allies and threatening to destroy our freedom. Are you satisfied with President Obama’s response? What would Reagan do? Take a moment to carefully listen to the following video, brought to you by Stefan TV, titled: “Obama vs. Reagan: How to Handle Terrorists.” Then you decide.

Virus Strain a Worthy Foe

The mysterious Enterovirus that has enveloped the country is posing major problems for the U.S., especially for our children. A particular strain of the virus, D68, is a worthy adversary. In this edition of SciShow, Hank Green explains the science of the latest virus to break out in the U.S. (Update: Sadly, since this video was shot, there have been two confirmed deaths due to the virus, both children ages 21 months and 4.) Also in this edition of SciShow, Green examines the planet’s looming population boom, which is expected to reach between 9.6 and 12.3 billion people.
