Jonathan Gruber's "pants inferno" and how his turn in Darrell Issa's barrel protected ObamaCare; Why are "non-Christian" sensibilities sacred?; Why is it not just permissible, but required, that Christians be mocked and persecuted to "preserve, protect, and defend" "non-Christian" sensibilities?; Would any Baptist with a child's corpse in his trunk not be arrested? Of course not - but for Muslims, that is apparently now a constitutional right; While we lament passage of another "Cromnibus," let us celebrate the fall from power of Harry (G)Reid and his depraved obstructionism; and, time-permitting, today's Morning Jolt.
Your always aware host once again provokes the right by pointing out that John Boehner is stupid (nice color though), Dick Cheney is dangerous (especiallyi f you hunt with him), and the rest of the Koch-suckers in DC are on recess...business as usual. Faux News goes into a blather when the President sat to watch some of the World Cup and proves once again that it doesn't matter what he does, thinks or tries, the questionable motives behind intransigent morality comes from the Groucho song line from 'Duck Soup',"whatever it is, I'm against it". The party of NO continues to justify blatant obstructionism behind a veil of christianity, allegations and frivolity with the constitution that borders on comical...if it weren't so damn dangerous.
Saturday June 28,2014 in his weekly address, President Barack Obama continued to threaten lawmakers that he would "act on his own" if they refused to accept his agenda because he claimed republican obstructionism is keeping the system "rigged against the middle class."“This obstruction keeps the system rigged for those at the top, and rigged against the middle class. And as long as they insist on doing it, I’ll keep taking actions on my own – like the actions I’ve taken already to attract new jobs, lift workers’ wages, and help students pay off their loans,” Obama said. “I’ll do my job, and if it makes Republicans in Congress mad that I’m trying to help people out, they can join me, and we’ll do it together.”Also available in iTunes

For todays show we have an excellent panel of guests to discuss the top three issues this week. We have Alexandra Ackers Lyons, she is Director of the Youth Engagement Fund and she is a political consultant and Democratic Strategist. Christian Dorsey works at the Economic Policy Institute. His areas of expertise are community development, housing, race and the economy. And we have Brad Blakeman who was an advisor to President George W. Bush and President of Freedom’s Watch. The panel first discusses the Affordable Care Act and the Website HealthCare.gov then discusses Republicans holding up several of President Obama's appointments and then discusses the latest revelations of NSA Spying. As always, we also have our Hall of Fame and Shame for those politicians and pundits who made great sense, or shameful nonsense, respectively.

The GOP ran on job in 2010. They have done nothing but block ever since.
Where are the jobs Boehner and McConnell?
The GOP have: assaulted Women's Rights, fought against Gay Equality and Same Sex Marriage, indifferent to Comprehensive Immigration Reform, wasted tax payer money on trying to repeal Obama Care 37 times (Cost $55 million), practiced gerrymandering to "win at all costs", cut taxes for the 1% while cutting social benefits for the elderly and poor, mostly made up or overblown "scandals" threatening to impeach the POTUS and demanding the Attorney General be fired.
That's not even the tip of the iceburg when it comes on to the whacky far right wing lunatics. Former Republican Senator Bob Dole(Kansas) said that "the GOP needs to be closed for repair". They have already lost a generation with their crazy extremist views. The Tea Party curse has come to bite them in the butt as they are in danger of becoming a Minority party like the Whigs did in 1850.

Our country has basically stagnated for the last four years under two of the most unproductive Congresses in the nation’s history. Why does it seem that so little is getting done in Congress? Why does it seem that so few of the bills that get introduced in Congress actually make it to becoming law?
In this episode we examine the role the filibuster has played in bringing regular business in Congress to a halt. We discuss the filibuster’s role in the larger Republican strategy of obstructionism and examine why Republicans came to use it as a governing strategy. We also discuss the dangers that may lie in using it as a governing strategy for the country going forward.

Karl Rove has a new Super-PAC designed to give wealthy donors more say in GOP primary races. The Tea Party and others in the Republican party are angry about it. But is Rove right, at least in a sense?
Would you like to see more moderate candidates emerge from the GOP primaries? A Super-PAC could tip the scale. With a more moderate GOP, perhaps the partisanship and obstructionism in Washington would be less debilitating.
But, doesn't it go against Coffee Party principles, and the principles of self-governance, to have oil barons, Wall St. bankers, and casino moguls decide the outcomes of primary races? Clearly, Rove and his super-wealthy friends are discouraged: they don't seem to be able to pick the winners in general elections to the degree that they'd like to. How do you feel about them protecting their investment in running our government by muscling in on the GOP primaries? Call (6
