The Resistance Against Trump Keeps Getting Rebuffed by the Voters 6/22/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Another election and another Republican win. It’s becoming just the way of life in the age of Trump. Georgia six had a lot of similarities to Trump’s win in November.  Handel got way outspent by the democrats, with a majority coming from Hollywood (just like Hillary). All the polls showed Handel, like Trump was gonna lose bigly, the gap only closed a couple of days before Election Day. Pajama boy had of course, all the media behind him too. You add all that up and this should’ve been a slam dunk for the democrats, except that it wasn’t.

The democrats have a lot of problems with their main problem being that they have no message. Hillary gave no one a reason to vote for her, and the current crop of donkeys have nothing to offer to voters. They have no platform, they are not giving anyone a reason to vote for them. Their only message is that they hate Trump, he’s satan, he’s evil, vote for them. It’s all negative, nothing positive, they have nothing positive, no positive reasons to vote for them. They have no plans for jobs, healthcare, except Trump is terrible. It’s hard to bring people to your side when all you offer is negativity, nothing exciting. Just anti-Trump 24/7. People are tired of hearing that. They wanna know what can the democrats do for them?

Also, it’s obvious that the democrats have no bench. When the leaders of their party is an old socialist and a blast from the 1990s past is their candidate in 2016, they got problems. Their last candidate that had any hope of winning was Obama and he cannot run again. The democrats are gonna lose again in 2018 and not retake the House.

Survey Shows Millennials Aren't Willing to Put Their Money Where Their #Hashtags Are to Defeat Climate Change 6/21/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Well it looks like Millennials are not willing to put their hashtags where their money is when it comes to climate change, global warming, Al Goreism, whatever the left is calling it this week. A new national DailyWire.com online survey of 1,250 Millennials wanted to find out how much they would be willing to give the government to fight climate change this year and a total of 60% of the respondents that included more liberals than conservatives offered either no money at all or were willing to give just ten dollars! Here we are facing the greatest threat to humanity (other than Donald Trump of course) in the eyes of the left and Millennials are not willing to put their money where their mouth is on the issue. This isn’t too surprising because a lot of Millennials think they’re making a difference already just by Tweeting out a hashtag. They also feel that others should pay, not them. They don’t believe you should have to pay for cable or Netflix, they don’t wanna pay for anything. Although, it could be as simple as they have no jobs and therefore no money to donate since they all voted Obama and Bernie. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

I Love My Free Two Day Shipping, but Should The Government Break Up Amazon? 6/20/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

In 1911 the Supreme Court ordered the Standard Oil Company to break up on antitrust grounds because Rockefeller’s company dominated the market. Late last week Amazon announced that its buying Whole Foods for almost $14 billion dollars, and after the deal was announced grocery store stock lost billions on market value because of the fear of the mighty Jeff Bezos. Online, almost 40% of all online shopping sales go to Amazon, and no surprise there, because Amazon Prime with the free two-day shipping plus access to Amazon music and video that comes with it is a great deal. Amazon is starting to have a hand in a lot of businesses beyond online shopping. It competes with Walmart, sales hardware, competes with shoe and clothing retailers, sales bandwidth and other web services, the list could go on and on. All of this adds up to one company having a lot of power and a lot of market share, which leads to the question is it time for the federal government to break up Amazon on antitrust grounds? Is the company just too big? Capitalism works best when there is competition and with Amazon controlling more and more of the market share in many areas, competition is becoming less and less. And that being said, if breaking up Amazon will hurt my free two day shipping or my Amazon video streaming, then we may just have to look the other way and let Jeff Bezos Rockefellar continue.

The Digital Future is Now: Netflix Overtakes Cable TV in U.S. Subscribers 6/19/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The UK Daily Mail reports that Netflix has surpassed cable in the number of subscribers with the streaming service now having over 50 million to cable’s 48 million U.S. subscribers. This is a big deal because cable TV has been at the top of the media mountain for decades, but really it’s not that surprising to me because everything is heading to the internet. Radio, TV, writing, journalism, the web is gonna take it all over. We live in a digital world now, analog is dead. Streaming services like Netflix offers customers a great deal of content for a good price. My only shock is that it took Netflix this long to overtake cable.

Conservatives and Christians Should Criticize Hollywood Less and Reach Out More to Them 6/16/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Katy Perry’s parents that are both Christian evangelists spoke to CBN about their daughter and encouraged the viewers to pray for their daughter, that she will come back to God because as you know Perry’s music is not K-Love approved. Definably not Christian music. I’m glad they did this interview because for a while I’ve thought about Hollywood and how we as conservatives, as religious people, we always tend to criticize Hollywood for their movies and music and rightly so, but I believe we should maybe not criticize so much, but reach out more to them. Show compassion. The actors and singers of Hollywood are real people. With real problems. Perry recently discussed having suicidal thoughts in the past. Maybe if we reached out more, however we can, via Twitter, whatever, and share God’s love and grace with them, maybe it would cause some of them to be more open minded and make them consider changing their ways.

The Warriors Versus The Donald: Thoughts on Sports Teams Skipping Meeting Trump 6/15/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

There are rumors that the Golden State LeBron Defeaters are not planning on visiting President Trump and the White House after their defeat of the Cleveland Cavs in the NBA Finals because there are not fans of the POTUS. Sports teams visiting the President after a championship has been a tradition for decades and really hasn’t been that big of a deal until well, Trump. In 2017 America, everything is political, even a sports team visiting a President and shaking his hand, so I’m not surprised by this nor am I surprised that they don’t wanna visit him. Some of the Patriots declined to meet with Trump after they won, including Tom Brady. My personal opinion is that it’s petty to not meet with the President regardless of who is sitting in the office, because it’s not every day you have the chance to meet a President, but in America we have freedom of speech, so if they don’t wanna meet with him, it’s ok, it’ll give him more time to help Make America Great Again. It’s just sad that America has gotten so political that a sports team meeting with the President is a multiple day discussion. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Do You Love Your iPhone More Than Your Girlfriend? New Study Says Maybe 6/14/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

 (Sound of texting on an iPhone) That is the sound of someone changing their Facebook relationship status. Obviously, you cannot actually change your relationship status to being in a romantic relationship with a smartphone, but maybe Facebook should allow you to because according to new research from Baylor University, we check our phones every 4 to 6 minutes and that 46% of people in this study said they have been “phubbed,” that means snubbing your romantic partner for your phone. As you would assume, this is causing problems for relationships and while this study concentrates on romantic relationships, this is really a problem that we all are experiencing in all relationships, romantic, business, whatever. The solution is to put the phone away, I know that sounds simple, but let’s be honest, it’s hard for all of us to put the phone down. Odds are you’re listening to this on an iPhone, but please if you do decide to put the phone away, do after you’re done listening to this. Don’t be a podcast snubber.

Liberal Food Critic May Unintentionally Double Conservative Chick Fil A's Sales 6/13/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A food critic at Eater.com, which is a website obviously about food, shared a long review of Christian based Chick Fil A and suggested and encouraged readers not to eat there because of the chicken chain’s “baggage,” which this guy defines as the restaurants Christian based morals that governs the company, mostly because its stance on traditional marriage in the past. Now we’ve seen this before a couple of years ago when Chick Fil A came under fire for comments from COO Dan Cathy on the issue that led to the National Chick Fil A Appreciation Day with hundreds of thousands coming out to support Cathy and the company’s freedom of speech and religion on the issue. Twitchy.com reports that the review has received backlash on Twitter with people criticizing him for politicizing food. Telling people that they shouldn’t eat there because of politics and the company’s Christian values is probably gonna back fire and it’s gonna make people say “Oh yeah? I shouldn’t eat at Chick Fil A? Well, screw you! I’m gonna eat there 3 times today!” This liberal food critic if he isn’t careful he’s gonna unintentionally double Chick Fil A’s sales!

Regulation Overload: Alabama Town Requiring Teens to Purchase Business License Just to Cut Grass 6/12/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

In the latest example of governmental overreach and absurdness comes from Gardendale Alabama. ABC 33/40 reports that the city of Gardendale near Birmingham is charging teenagers $110 for a business license just to cut grass for a summer job. So if a kid charges $20 bucks or a little more to cut an elderly woman’s yard, it’ll take him 5-6 times of cutting it just to cover the business license expense. Personally, I believe this is a good lesson for the young kids. It’s important early on in life to learn about the over regulation and over taxing our government puts us all through. Maybe because of this the kids of Gardendale will grow up to not vote democrat so that we can stop some of these silly regulations. Trump is already getting rid of some of this stuff.

Imagine How the Culture Could Be Different if Hollywood Promoted Traditional Values 6/9/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

You’re not gonna believe this because of the standards to today’s Hollywood, but at one point in time, Hollywood actually had moral standards, in fact they even had a production code in which they followed during the early 1930s-to the early 1960s that stated that no movie should be produced that would side with crime, evil or sin. So no sex scenes, no taking God’s name in vein, no mocking of religion, no nudity, none of it.

The production code would be replaced by the movie ratings system that we have now, but could you imagine any Hollywood film company living up to a code of conduct such as the one that got started in the 30s? No way could they!

Imagine for a moment though, if Hollywood did have decency standards and produced movies that promoted traditional values, pro-family, practiced Christian morality, did not praise criminals or promoted drugs, just imagine the difference in our society and the positive influence that Hollywood could be on teenagers and young adults in America.

I’m not saying all our problems would be solved, but having a decent, positive Hollywood and media culture that could influence them for the better couldn’t hurt. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary

James Comey and the Testimony of the Century 6/8/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Today former FBI director James Comey will be giving the testimony of the century, well that is what the TV networks would like for you to believe as they are gonna preempt Maury reruns to air wall-to-wall coverage of his testimony. ABC, CBS, NBC, all of them plan to air his testimony.

DC bars are even planning Comey happy hours. The media is hyping this like it’s game 7 of the NBA Finals with the Warriors and the Cavs.

They’re hoping that Comey will say something that will finally rid the country of Trump, make him resign, impeach him, make him crawl out of the White House like a rat.

No matter what he says, the media is gonna spin this to make it out to be the worst possible thing that could ever happen to Trump.

They’re gonna make a big deal out of nothing. And at the end of the day, Trump will still be the Twitter in Chief. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Info on Supreme Court Case All Smartphone Users Are Gonna Want to Watch 6/7/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

There’s a case that is making its way to the big show, the Supreme Court, that is one that privacy advocates and smartphone users everywhere are gonna want to pay attention too.

In Carpenter v. United States, the black robes will decide if law enforcement can request cell phone location data without a warrant. HotAir.com reports this doesn’t include texts or calls so all of your memes and flirtatious text to that girl guys that isn’t interested are safe from the eyes of the cops!

What got this started is a case where police used location data to track some armed robbers that police were trying to prosecute.

My how times have changed. In the old days, bad guys that got caught would say, “that’s not my weed, I’m just holding it for a friend” and now it’s “I wasn’t at the bank robbing it, I just let my friend borrow my iPhone that night.” I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Why is Christian Media Embracing Secular Values? 6/6/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

There is a growing trend among Christian media to try and make it more “relevant” more “real” and less preachy so that it will appeal more to a non-Christian audience because these artists feel that they should be able to say or do whatever with their so-called art. In order to achieve this goal of mainstream media relevance, there are some, not all, nor the majority of Christian bands, that are starting to cuss, and when I say cuss, I don’t mean saying the word hell in a Biblical sense, but we’re talking they’re dropping F-bombs in the music, and sometimes according to NewReleaseTuesday.com, a Christian music site, even in some worship songs!

A lot of these bands that are doing this are on independent labels, they’re not on the big ones, so you won’t hear their music on K-Love. And it’s not just music either.

A new faith based movie, Generational Sins has pretty much every dirty word you can imagine.

As Christians, we’re supposed to be in the world, but not of it, but it seems now that too many believe that in order to reach the world, we must imitate the world that the message of the gospel isn’t enough, we must try and make it look cool and relevant to today’s society and morality. Adopting the values of the world is never gonna reach them.

I’ve listened to some of the songs by so-called Christian bands that cuss and it sounds nothing like a Christian song, and if it doesn’t sound religious to me, what are those looking for a message apart from what the world is offering think?

If you have to be like the world in order to reach the world, maybe you’ve been apart of world the entire time. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Cavs/Warriors Rematches Are Making the NBA Finals Boring 6/1/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

I’m not the least bit excited about the NBA Finals because we’ve already seen this Finals already, a couple of times. It’s the same story lines that we’ve had: can the Warriors upset the Cavs? Which is yes, they can, we’ve already seen it. Can LeBron grow his legacy, and win with all the pressure? Yes, he can. He already has. Where’s the drama? Where’s the excitement? Where’s the unpredictable? You basically have the All-Star Teams of the East and the West playing in the Finals. Both teams are unbeatable in their conferences. After a while, just having the same two teams play year after year is gonna make people lose interest in the game. At least with Jordan and the Bulls in the 90s, they faced different teams, so you had a little bit of drama there. Past couple of years, it’s just been James against Golden State. That being said, the NBA Finals is still more fun to watch than a Kathy Griffin stand up special. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Boycotts Against Conservative Hosts Could Hurt Liberal Hosts in the Long Run 5/30/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

At the time of this recording Sean Hannity is still employed by Fox and I’m hoping he will be for a very long time. Hannity is a good guy, never met him, but he’s a good guy. I wanna discuss all of this boycott business that the left is engaging in about conservative TV and radio hosts. It’s not new, they’ve been doing this for years, from starting boycotts against Rush Limbaugh to the latest with Sean Hannity. In the long run, I believe all of the boycotting is gonna start hurting liberal TV and radio shows because we are getting in such an intense political climate with each side going after the other side and boycotting and harassing companies because they advertise on a show they don’t like politically, that what’s gonna happen is that a lot of these blue chip, big name advertisers are gonna stop advertising on anything political all together, and that’s not gonna help anyone. USAA has already cancelled advertisements on Hannity and then they announced they wouldn’t advertise on Rachel Maddow because they’re afraid cable news, right or left, is becoming too toxic to advertise on. The left should be careful what they wish for. They may get Hannity fired today, and then tomorrow it may be their show hosts that are losing advertisers.

I know today is a holiday and you’re all busy grilling out and hanging out so I appreciate you taking the time to listen, but today is so much more than a day to grill. Today we pause and honor those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The real heroes of our society, the men and women that list their lives in service to our nation, to keep us safe, keep us free. We need to remember though that they lost not just their lives but time with their family, their kids, and their love ones. They gave up so much for us, for their kids to have a better life. It’s a debt we can never pay back to them. So today, I want to say God bless to those that have served, lost their lives and to their families as well for the sacrifices they’ve made. Because of you, America continues to be free. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

This is gonna upset Fake News CNN. DailyCaller.com reports that a new poll from Harvard-Harris shows that almost two-thirds, 65 percent of Americans say the mainstream media published a lot of fake news, and some channels it’s the only thing they report. I made up that last part, but it’s true. Eighty percent of Republicans, 60 percent of Independents and 53 percent of democrats say the media has a fake news problem, but don’t except the fake news to report on their fake news problem anytime soon because they’re too busy reporting fake Trump news to take anytime for some self-reflection.

New Study Shows ESPN Losing Conservative Viewers Over Politics 5/25/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

In 2014 on this very show I said that ESPN was becoming the “Liberal Sports Progressive Network” and I guess a recent study agrees with me as a new Deep Root Analysis study as reported by FreeBeacon.com indicates that ESPN saw a decline in conservative leaning viewers between 2015 and 2016 in 34 of 43 TV markets.  ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN News all saw viewership declines among Republicans. If you’ve watched ESPN lately this probably isn’t too surprising to you as sometimes if you aren’t careful you might wonder if you are watching MSNBC over ESPN as many of their shows go political on topics instead of just sticking to sports. When people watch sports they’re watching to avoid politics, to relax. No one wants to hear a discussion on ESPN about politics. There are plenty of channels for that. The further left the channel goes, the further their ratings will go down. Hey Fox Sports 1! If you wanna increase you ratings, gain some ground on ESPN? Make Sports Fun Again by reporting on sports and not politics!  It would give you an advantage. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Innocence and Beautiful Young Lives Lost at Ariana Grande Concert 5/24/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

I always dread the days I have to come on here and discuss a tragedy that occurred and once again, here we are, all having to witness another tragic event. This time in Manchester at the Ariana Grande concert. So many beautiful, innocent lives lost, some as young as 8 years old. It’s hard to even find the words to say about it. So many parents lost their precious babies. I cannot even begin to imagine how much pain they must feel. Once again this is just another reminder that evil exists in the world, and evil must be defeated. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. In honor of those lost, today I’m ending the show with a moment of silence. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary. (Silence).

Is Dwanye 'The Rock' Johnson 2020's Ross Perot? 5/23/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript (May contain errors):
 

Do you smell what The Rock is politicking? As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has hinted that he may run for president sometime, and now those rumors are becoming more widespread that he may run in 2020 against Trump. Imagine that. Hollywood movie star versus Hollywood TV star. What a world we live in. No doubt the democrats need someone to run for them in 2020 since they have no one on their bench or anyone that can match the charismatic personality of Obama. So, The Rock fits that check off box for them: he’s charismatic, likeable, hip, I mean he’s a movie star, right up the left’s alley. What more could the left want?! It’s not surprising that he’s beating Trump, a man with a political record, versus a guy that no one knows what he believes except that we all agree that he’s a likable dude. No way he’ll be the democrat nominee in 2020, but if he actually wanted to run and not just have a cool P.R. stunt, he could help the democrats win if he went third party. Remember Ross Perot? The billionaire ran third party and helped Bill Clinton win, and if The Rock did that, he could pull in just enough votes to help the democrats come close to beating Trump. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
