SORT BY Relevancy
A lame duck Congress went back to work today, which makes us wonder: Can it be any lamer than it's been the last four years? MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills are not encouraged by reports that Harry Reid will not pursue confirmation of Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch, leaving it to the next session when Mitch McConnell will be the leader. Judging from McConnell's record since vowing to just say no to everything the President proposes, we don't think this will go well. Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.

Did I say "work"??? They have not done anything for as long as I can remember!!! Everyone wants to review legislation with "fresh" eyes! What is so fresh??? Rep. Louis Gohmert from Texas has returned...Rep. Fox from Virginia has returned...Gone will be Rep. Michele Bachmann from Minnesota. But in her place, we will have Sen. Joni Ernst, the "pig castrator," who is coming to Washington to "make them squeal!" (Her words, not mine). What are your thoughts; we'd like to know! Call us at 646-595-3275 and have the coffee perking.
Join us for a decidedly ungrubered episode of the RINO Hour of Power with your host Rick Moran and co-host Rich Baehr of the American Thinker.
Jonathan Gruber has done more harm to Obamacare than all Republicans combined with his boastful, arrogant comments about how a lack of transparency and deliberate lying sold the bill to Congress and the people. What will be the practical fallout of his comments?
Meanwhile, Congress will be meeting in a lame duck session that promises fireworks galore. What is Congress likely to take up and what is likely to be left for the new Congress in January? We'll ask Bill Straub, PJ Media's Washington correspondent.
The show streams live from 8:00 - 9:00 PM Eastern time. A podcast will be available shortly after the end of the show.
Welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning, we will be discussing the following topics:
1st SEGMENT: DEAL OR NO DEAL
The US has had a long history of not dealing with terrorist. With the release of Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, did the US renege on that policy?
2ND SEGMENT: DUCK DYNASTY
President Obama is at the midpoint of his second term. Should he be considered at this point as a Lame Duck president?
3RD SEGMENT: NOT A GOOD MIX
With all the mass shootings in the US in the past five years, mental ill people continue to find ways to get guns. We will discuss.
GOP leaders in both Houses seem confused going into the lame-duck Congress and beyond. Boehner and McConnell act like they won the elecfion. We consider the huge test for the POTUS and Dems in cajoling or badgering Republicans into avoiding financial disaster and more.
With the wave Presidential Pen, up to five million people people will granted amnesty. In 2015 a Republican Congress takes office, the party that this progressive liberal President has blamed every social ill on, will now be in charge. This lame duck President is used to getting his way with a congress mostly controlled by liberal democrats, now his has no Congressional support, what will he do. Novemeber 5th a day after losing his democractically controlled senate, he appeared in Ferguson and met with the strong armed robbery suspect's family, killed while attacking a police officer in his patrol vehicle and among others was Al Sharpton and his race baiting crowd bent on stirring up the racial unrest pot. Our President did not call for calm, nor did he suggest they let justice, no social justice run its course, no he suggested that they " Stay the Course". That's is a chilling look into the next two years! What do you think?

Brad Stine is on a mission—a mission to free us all from the chains of political correctness and prevent our eventual ‘wussification.’ From his Nashville stronghold, Stine is mounting his crusade against these hypocrisies, all of which are explored in his highly anticipated 4 album/DVD, aptly titled ‘WUSSIFICATION!’
“You know what offends me?....Offended people,” says Stine. A staunch supporter of first amendment rights and foe of political correctness, Stine asserts that rights should be universally applied. “In a country with guaranteed rights to freedom of religion, its citizens are constantly trying to make faith in public spheres illegal. I am offended by that contradiction and want to talk about it as a comic.” The strength of his conviction about our freedoms can be found in many places on WUSSIFICATION—from “Merry Christmas Too!” (the right to celebrate religion), to “At Least We’re Not France!” (the responsibility to take action as a country), to “Spank” (the ability to discipline our children the way we see fit).
Duck Dynasty star Tim Guraedy is best known to the show’s millions of hard-core fans as “Mountain Man,” the slow-talking air-conditioning repairman/radio host who is a neighbor to the Robertsons, the Louisiana family that made a fortune from its best-selling duck calls, around which the show is based. Mountain Man is the only semi-regular cast member who is not a Robertson family member or employee of Duck Commander.
