On episode 289 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@Marnus3 on Twitter) from “The Poorly Written Political Blog“, Mark Brooks (@MarkBrooksVA on Twitter) from “The Next Shoe Blog” and Ian Reifowitz (@IanReifowitz on Twitter) from The Huffington Post and his DailyKos Site who is also the author of the new book Obama’s America: A Transformative Vision of Our National Identity.

On the show this week we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment. Then after Joe gives us another hilarious clown car update, we discuss President Obama’s interview with WebMD.com about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) roll-out. Then we discuss our thoughts on why the GOP is so against the ACA Law including a clip of Paul Ryan backpedaling at a town hall after a constituent chastised the GOP for attempting to repeal the ACA law 51 times.  And after another hilarious commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss the “report” from Gov. Chris Christie’s lawyers attempting to clear him in the BridgeGate scandal and other allegations that are being investigated.  Then we discuss Tea Party Congressional Candidate Susanne Atanus, who won the GOP primary in her Illinois District, as well as the founder of the Creation Museum demanding equal time on the new science TV series, Cosmos, featuring another hilarious parody from Rocky Mountain Mike (@RockyMntnMike on Twitter).  Then we close out the show discussing Sen. David Vitter defending the Koch Brothers in a town hall meeting and Pastor John Benefiel’s statements on a Christian radio show about how successful they’ve been with prayer.

Episode 272 – Wrapped In The Flag

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 272 – November 3, 2013

Show Art - Wrapped In The Flag by Claire Conner

On episode 272 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@Marnus3 on Twitter) from “The Left Hook” Blog, John Sheirer (@RealAmericanLib on Twitter) who’s the author of the book “Tales of a Real American Liberal” available at http://www.johnsheirer.com/ and Claire Conner (@wrappedinflag on Twitter) who’s the author of the book “Wrapped In The Flag” available at http://claireconner.com/wrapped-in-the-flag/.

On the show this week we start out with introductions and then we get directly into a discussion about Claire Conner‘s book “Wrapped In The Flag: A Personal History of America’s Radical Right“.  We discuss how Claire was just twelve years old when her parents founded the Chicago chapter of the John Birch Society in 1959 and dedicated their lives to right-wing extremism and she explains how the people behind the John Birch Society have moved the politics of the United States further and further to the right over the last 50 years that led to the prominence of today’s Religious Right and the Tea Party.  Then after another hilarious commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com and the “All A Tweetie” segment, Joe gives us a clown car update which leads right back into the discussion about Claire’s book and how she eventually escaped, while still loving her Parents and family members stating “Extremism broke my family, I don’t want it to break my country”.

Claire Conner‘s book “Wrapped In The Flag: A Personal History of America’s Radical Right” is available at Beacon Press, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Indie Bound.  You can check out all of the links to purchase the book in hard copy or e-book format at Claire’s website – http://claireconner.com/wrapped-in-the-flag/.  You can also check out her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/WrappedInTheFlagByClaireConner.

On episode 269 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@Marnus3 on Twitter), Francie (@Francie57 on Twitter) and LibertyBelle (@LibertyBelleJ on Twitter).

On the show this week we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment, then after Joe gives us a clown car update, we discuss the supposed hot mic incident between Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Rand Paul and Speaker John Boehner’s response. Then we discuss Sen. Rand Paul’s interview on Meet the Press and how Speaker John Boehner keep repeating that he really needs a conversation. And after another hilarious commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss Jake Tapper’s comments on CNN as well as Chris Matthews’ panel featuring Lizz Winstead about the government shut down.  Then we discuss Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s statements on the US Senate floor about the impact of breaching the debt ceiling and Sen. Ted Cruz speaking at the Value Voters Summit about how shutting down the government and threatening to not raise the debt ceiling is the Tea Party’s model to implement their agenda over the next 2 years.  Then we close out the show discussing Michele Bachmann’s statements on a right wing radio show about attempting to impeach President Obama, featuring another hilarious parody by Rocky Mountain Mike (@RockyMntnMike on Twitter), and Bill O’Reilly on FOX News stating that Sec. of Defense, Chuck Hagel, should resign from office because the Department of Defense couldn’t pay the death benefits to families of fallen US Soldiers due to the lack of funding caused by the government shut down.
