Instead Of The Predictable Hollywood Trump Bashing, Actor Chris Pratt Shared Something Unpredictable At The MTV Awards: The Gospel 6/20/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The star of the upcoming JurassicWorld movie Chris Pratt shared something that might’ve never been spoken on MTV at the MTV Movie and TV Awards Sunday night, and that is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pratt is no theologian, and some parts were vulgar bathroom humor, but overlooking that, he told the audience of mostly millennials and those watching at home that they each have a soul and to be careful with it.

That God loves them; He is real and wants the best for them.

He also told them to learn to pray, to stay humble and that we’re all imperfect, that we all were designed by a powerful force.

He also said to not take the freedom we have for granted and to remember that our freedom we have was paid for by someone else’s blood.

What a nice change from the usual and predictable Trump bashing that usually occurs at these events now.

While Pratt is no Billy Graham, he obviously has a practicing faith and just the fact he would say those things publicly in Hollywood is more gospel and morality than we’ve heard in probably years from Hollywood.

Imagine the impact if more of Hollywood were believers and shared their faith on and off the screen. It could cause a dramatic culture change, and boy do we need a dramatic culture change.

The Rolling Stones Were Wrong. You CAN Get Satisfaction! Americans' Satisfaction With Direction Of U.S. Rises According To New Poll 6/19/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Turns out Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones were wrong. You CAN get satisfaction. Well, at least in a new Gallup poll on the direction of the country.

The poll reports that included more than 1500 U.S. adults, the number of Americans satisfied with the direction of the U.S. is on the rise, reaching a 12 year high in June with 38 percent feeling satisfied. That’s up from 29 percent in April.

The satisfaction increase is up among Republicans and the all-important independents. In fact, all categories saw improvements in satisfaction except among Democrats.    

Gallup states a growing economy and decrease unemployment are the reasons for the rise in satisfaction and Trump is just getting started.

Imagine six months from now how great the economy will be if Trump continues improving the economy. Mick Jagger will have to write a new song called “I Can Only Get Satisfaction.”

NFL Continues To Fumble The Ball As National Anthem Controversy Continues With Only 42 Percent Viewing The League Favorably In New Poll 6/18/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A new Fox News poll shows the NFL continues to fumble the ball as the national anthem controversy continues.

The poll reports only 42 percent have a favorable view of the league. That’s down from 46 percent in 2017 and 64 percent in 2013.

The NFL’s new national anthem policy has a 61 percent approval rating. Only 33 percent disagree with the new policy that requires players on the field to stand for the national anthem.

Fifty-four percent of Democrats disapprove of the new policy, and only 10 percent of Republicans disapprove.

Fifty-six percent of black voters disapprove, and 28 percent of white voters disapprove of the new policy.

However, the number that really matters in this poll is that 64 percent of self-identified football fans still have a favorable view of the league and that’s really all the matters because as long as they have their base, nothing seriously is gonna change on this issue. Unless fans stop attending games and buying merchandise, this anthem controversy is gonna continue, even with a new policy.

By the way, I caught some Canadian Football on ESPN 2 Friday night, and all the players stood for the Canadian anthem.

New Study Reports Atheists Meet God Four Years Earlier Than Believers 6/15/18 - 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 a study of 1,000 U.S. obits published across the U.S. shows there is a correlation between being religious and living longer.

The results showed that those that mentioned a religious affiliation in their obit lived four years longer than those that did not.

The authors of the study stated the faithful may live longer because religious people drink less, volunteer more, and engage in social activities throughout their lives.

So the moral of the story is if you wanna live longer, wake up on Sunday, and go to church. It’s literally good both for your mind and body

Will New CNN Owner AT&T Keep It Fake Or Go Straight With Real Reporting Again? 6/14/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

CNN has a new owner after the AT&T Time Warner deal got the seal of approval Tuesday from a federal judge. The question now is will AT&T keep CNN fake news or will they go straight by offering straight down the middle actual journalism?

For those of you that don’t know, CNN stands for the Cable News Network, and at one point in time, it actually did some reporting. Now it’s the home of Trump bashing and Stormy Daniels.

From a ratings standpoint, CNN is getting beat like LeBron by the Warriors in the NBA Finals. They are a distant third behind Fox News and MSNBCObama.

And it’s no surprise to anyone that has watched the cable channel in the past few years to understand why. It’s one-sided, politically correct, irrationally bias toward Trump, and they’re not even trying to pretend to hide their disdain for Trump and conservatives. 

If AT&T wanted to be bold and really make CNN a competitor again in the ratings, they should go out and hire a conservative, put them on at 8pm primetime. If they did that, I guarantee the network’s ratings would be over a million per night.  Or, even better, hire Clay Travis to host a show with Brooke Baldwin because that would be must see TV every night.

Trump Has Shown More Leadership Than Previous Presidents On North Korea, But There Is Still Progress To Be Made 6/13/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

There is no way to predict in the end how all of the Kim Jong Un business will turn out but let’s hope for the best.

Un isn’t the most stable person on the planet, so who knows how he’ll feel tomorrow. He could totally change his mind and start nuking up again.

Regardless of what happens in the months ahead, President Trump has already done more to bring peace to the region and has made more progress than any other president in my lifetime and yours too. He should receive and deserves credits for his efforts because peace would benefit all of us, including Never Trumpers.

You have some that are pointing out the horrible conditions and the prison camps of Kim Jong Un, and yes, all of that is bad and in the future I hope Trump or the next president can build on the progress and push him to close the camps and have better conditions for his people. All humans deserve to be free and safe.

But these things take time. Look how long it’s taken to have a meeting with him or to finally have a president willing to try to bring peace. You cannot just go into a meeting with an unstable crazy person guns blazing and demand him do everything you want all at once. I don’t know an example in history where that has occurred. You gotta take it a step at a time, but let’s all hope that Trump and future presidents can make Un have better conditions for his people. That should be on the negotiation table as well and the sooner the better.

Trump has made progress and for that he should be praised. He’s shown more leadership on the issue than any previous presidents and I hope that he progress continues so we all can have a safer world.

Robert De Niro Is About As Brave Yelling About Trump As A Red Sox Fan Yelling About The Yankees At Fenway Park 6/12/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Once again on Sunday night, Hollywood did their best to help Trump win reelection when Robert De Niro took the stage and yelled profanities at the President.

I’m not sure if they will ever learn that yelling and cussing about Trump is only helping him with his base, and even those that aren’t his base but are decent Americans that are looking at all this and Trump is looking like the reasonable one.

The most hilarious part of all of this is how the media and celebrities rush to a mic or to Twitter to say how “brave” a celebrity is for speaking out. What. A. Joke.

Standing in a room full of people that agree with you 100% about Trump is about as brave as a Red Sox fan saying he hates the Yankees at Fenway Park.

If Hollywood really wants to be brave, how about some of the celebrities go on Fox News and debate Sean Hannity about Trump?

Cussing about Trump isn’t a political argument. Instead of name calling, offer political policy reasons why you don’t like him.

These are the same people that produce PSAs telling kids not to be a bully, to show compassion, tolerance and all they do is cuss about Trump and mock members of his administration including Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Keep it up though, because it’s gonna make great ads for Trump’s reelection campaign. If Hollywood really wants Trump to not win in 2020, they should stop talking. It’s only helping him.

When The Government Gives You Lemons, Open Up A Lemonade Stand Anyways. Why Are Local Governments Wasting Time And Resources On Kids' Summer Lemonade Stands? 6/11/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

One thing a lot of kids enjoy doing in the summer is opening up a lemonade stand. It’s a harmless, innocent way for kids to make some money and have some fun.

That’s been the case until the government Grinch’s got involved across America fining kids for not having a business license or permit to sell lemonade in their neighborhood.

Across America, kids have been told that they owe money for permits from California to Georgia. In Cali in 2016, a young girl was told she owed $3,500 in permits to sell lemonade.

Even in Texas, a little girl was told she needed an operations permit, and in Colorado, a lemonade stand got shut down over a permit issue according to The Blaze.

This is all really ridiculous that our government is wasting time and resources on summer lemonade stands that kids operate.

There are so many other things, legitimate concerns that government officials could be spending their time on. The kids probably don’t even make enough money all summer to pay for the permits and fines. They’re selling lemonade. It’s like a quarter a cup. They’re not getting rich.

If you just have to make them have a permit. Fine. Charge them a dollar, but that’s it. Remember, they’re kids. It’s not like they’re running a business empire. Let them have some fun.

There’s plenty of time for them later to learn about taxes and permits. Let them pour you a glass of lemonade and enjoy summer. They’re not kids long.

We're Sorry, But Your Call Can't Be Completed As Dialed. Smartphones Are Killing Landlines Like Video Killed The Radio Star 6/8/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

They said video killed the radio star and it seems that the iPhone has killed the landline according to a new survey from the CDC reported on the L.A. Times website.

More than half of American households 54% rely entirely on cellphones. In 2006, only 16% said they didn’t have a landline phone.

This is a trend that will only continue to grow as smartphone technology advances and younger Americans grow up without using a landline. Heck, I bet a lot of kids don’t even know how to use a landline.

I believe there are some downsides to landlines dying off. Number one, landlines were not an addictive piece of technology. No one sat there all day using one. It’s also more dependable than a cellphone, especially in bad weather, but the increase of reliance on smartphones inside the home is just gonna make more people stay on them longer, fueling more social and societal problems as people become more additive to using it.

Landlines had a good run though. Long live landlines.

Americans Are Burned Out On The News And Really Who Could Blame Them? There Is So Much Negative News 24/7 It's No Wonder They're Worn Out By All Of It 6/7/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Americans are burned out on the headlines and really, who could blame them? There is so much fake news, bad news, stupid news, Trump hating news, lying about Melania news, it’s no wonder a new survey of more than 5,000 adults shows that 68 percent of Americans are “worn out” by the amount of news they’re seeing. The percentage is even higher than during the 2016 election when 59% were sick of the news.

The survey found 77 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are sicker of the news than Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents that showed 61 percent are sick of the news.

Considering the amount of media sources and all the negative stories that are published daily, I’m not surprised by this. The level of news available is exhausting. As with smartphones I discussed on Wednesday, sometimes you need to turn off the news and take a mental break from it all. It’ll do you some good. Well, except A Whittle Bit of Commentary. Always listen to this show, but everyone else. Yeah, turn off the TV.

iAddiction: American Teens Time Online Continues To Increase As New Survey Shows Uptick In Usage. Is It Too Late To Change The Trend? 6/6/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Just a couple of years ago I discussed on the show how teens are addicted to the internet and social media. According to a new survey from Pew, it seems that web addiction is only getting worse among young Americans.

The survey of more than 1,000 parents with kids 13-17 years old and 743 teens, showed that 45 percent of American teens are “almost constantly” online, which is double from the 24 percent who said they were always online in the 2014-2015 survey according to Recode.

They’re mostly using Snapchat and YouTube, with Instagram third. Ninety-five percent of them have a smartphone, so I guess it’s good thing Apple has announced a new app called Screen Time on the iOS 12 update that will allow parents and really any iPhone user, to set limits on how much they use the device and will allow parents the ability to limit their kids use social media.

People of all ages, especially kids, are becoming more and more addicted to their phones. Some may wonder with the way our society is now and how dependent we all are on phones, can these unhealthy addictions to technology be changed?

The answer is yes.

People are addicted to a lot of things: alcohol, cigarettes, porn, and people break those addictions. Technology is no different. It takes a lot of discipline, but it’s possible. Parents are gonna have to step up more with their kids and lead by example by putting their own phones down and rediscovering the lost art of living life outside a screen.

Driving In The Middle Of A Military Convoy Reminded Me Of How Grateful I Am For The Men And Women Serving In The Military 6/5/2018 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Sunday I drove back to Mississippi and outside of Mobile, Alabama, I got in the middle of a convoy of military vehicles heading to Camp Shelby, at least that’s what I’m assuming since it’s the closest base.

While driving beside them and sometimes in the middle of them, depending on the lane and traffic, I started thinking about how much I respect those that serve and how much I admire them for being willing to serve. They volunteered. They were not forced to do it.

I started thinking about how much they sacrifice to protect our nation. They give up time with family and friends to spend a summer in sometimes extremely hot and dangerous spots like Afghanistan.

And a lot of them are not getting rich serving in the military.

They’re working hard to protect our freedom, and I just wanted to take a moment to say how grateful I am for them. They deserve our respect throughout the year and not just on holidays.

They are the good guys (and gals). God bless them and protect them.

The Vulgarity Of The Likes of Roseanne and Samantha Bee Is Fueled By Social Media Culture 6/4/2018 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

What Roseanne said on Twitter is indefensible. I’m no fan of Valerie Jarrett, but personal attacks are always wrong no matter the person it’s aimed at. Disagree with her on politics, but going after someone’s look is just low.

Samantha Bee, a person I’ve never thought is funny, as with Roseanne went not only too far, but went into the gutter by calling Ivanka Trump the “C-word.” I understand you don’t like the Trump family, but calling her a vulgar term doesn't help your cause and is really disgusting.

Twenty, maybe even ten years ago, what Samantha Bee said would’ve never aired on basic cable but it’s 2018, and there is very little decency left in the world, especially in the media.

You can argue many different ways why our pop culture is as vulgar as it is now, and probably all of your arguments would be correct, but I believe one main reason our culture is as vulgar as it is now is because of social media.  

If you browse Twitter, you’re gonna see a lot of hate, a lot of vulgar, a lot of disgusting and degrading language and perversion. It’s not just Twitter. You can add Facebook, Snapchat, and all the rest.

The decline of our culture can be correlated to the rise of social media. These platforms have allowed people to say horrible things and not be held accountable for it. It was only a matter of time until this mindset influenced the rest of our pop culture as well.

Maybe It's Time To Swipe Left To Online Dating. Recent Studies Show Online Dating Lowers Self-Esteem And Increases Depression 5/30/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

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

In news that isn’t really surprising to me, new studies show that online dating (like social media) lowers self-esteem and increases depression.

A 2017 study in the peer-reviewed journal Body Image with a sample of 1300 college-age students, found that men and women that use Tinder appear to have lower self-esteem than those who don’t. in addition, CNN.com reports that the study said that in general, Tinder users reported less satisfaction with their bodies and looks than non-users.  

Match.com released a study in 2017 that showed that one in six singles (15 percent) reported feeling addicted to the online process of dating. Millennials were 125 percent more likely to say they felt addicted to dating.

A 2016 study of 300 university students linked technology addiction to anxiety and depression.

Americans are addicted to our phones and technology and it’s only getting worse as Match.com has more than 7 million paid subscribers, up from 3.4 million in 2014. The increase in users means more are becoming dependent on technology, and that’s just gonna make more people have increased anxiety and depression as they live and die by the Tinder swipe.

As with social media, maybe it’s time Americans swipe left to online dating and spend less time online and give the old traditional way a go: meeting in public on a Friday night for dinner and a movie.

Mike Pence As Trump's VP Was A Godsend, As He Helps To Provide Trump With Advice From A Christian Perspective 5/29/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

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

Vice President Mike Pence spoke Friday at a pastor’s conference and encouraged them to continue to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

Pence said that “Other than the service of those who wear the uniform of the United States especially our cherished fallen, the ministries that you lead and the prayers that you pray are the greatest consequence in the life of the nation.”

It is so good to once again have a strong Christian leader working in the White House and helping to provide conservative Christian leadership in DC.

Mike Pence is probably the most underrated asset to the Trump administration. He deserves more praise than he receives because it’s so important that Trump has someone he can turn to that he can trust for advice from a Biblical perspective and Vice President Pence fills that role.

Mike Pence as Trump’s VP was truly a Godsend.

Touchdown Team MAGA: The NFL Gives Trump A Big League Victory On The National Anthem, Triggering The Woke Media 5/25/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Football season hasn’t even started and we already have the winning team for this season and it’s not the Patriots or Eagles. It’s Team MAGA Trump.

The NFL on Wednesday announced a new National Anthem policy that has ESPN more triggered than liberals at Sunday brunch when they see Tomi Lahren walking out of the restaurant. The new policy will require all players to stand and if they don’t then the team will be fined. If they don’t want to stand, they can stay in the locker room until the song is over.

This is a big league victory for Trump. There is no other way to describe it. Trump is the one that got the ball rolling on this when he Tweeted his displeasure about the protests and once again, Trump has won and liberals have lost.

The majority of America sided with Trump on this issue, and the NFL knows it. Their ratings were down last season, people boycotted the league, all of it was bad for business, and the NFL owners know it.

ESPN and the rest of the woke media will be upset for days about this, but the NBA has a similar policy and no one is making a fuss about it.

Trump should and will take full credit for this. Trump said America First, and the NFL and a majority of America agrees with him. Another issue and another total Trump touchdown.

Trump said we’ll be tired of all the winning, well I’m not yet!

Millennials Ruin Everything: New Survey Shows Millennials Hear Yanny While Older And Trump Voting Generations Hear Laurel 5/23/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

I guess we all should’ve known that it would be only a matter of time before Millennials got the Laurel v. Yanny debate wrong. Millennials are ruining everything else, so why not this too?

According to a Huffington Post survey of 1,000 respondents, “Yanny” holds the advantage over “Laurel” 35 to 31 percent, with 14 percent not sure. Americans under 30, they’re hearing “Yanny,” but a lot of them also voted for Granny Hillary, so I’m sure I trust their judgement. Those 65 and up, the wise, older, and Trump voting, are hearing Laurel.

According to the report, age may be the reason that some hear “Laurel” and others wrongly hear “Yanny,” as the article stated that younger people are more attuned to the higher-frequency sounds, which is why they hear “Yanny.”

Of course, this isn’t the case for everyone. I’m a millennial and I hear Laurel, and I voted Trump, so maybe I’m just wise beyond my years.

(Sound bite of Laurel playing). Seriously, it’s so obvious it’s Laurel.

America's Next Great Awakening Needs To Start On The Soundstages Of Hollywood Instead Of The Pews Of The Church 5/22/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

America is in need of a spiritual revival that is obvious. In our history we’ve seen this happen before and it can happen again, but unlike revival movements in the past, the next one doesn’t need to happen under a revival tent or even at a church, the next Great Awakening needs to happen in Hollywood.

There is no organization in our society that has more of an influence and impact on our society than the media. Hollywood can change culture, can influence politics, can persuade public opinion.

In some ways, the media has more influence than the church does in today’s modern society. Some people are more willing to hear a message from a movie than a pastor.

With the incredible influence Hollywood and the news media has on American society, if a Great Awakening took place on the soundstages of Hollywood, the impact and change to America would be historic.

I Liked I Can Only Imagine Over The Avengers Because It's A Real Story About Real Life Struggles That Only The Real Superhero, Jesus, Can Solve 5/21/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

I finally had a chance to go see I Can Only Imagine that tells the story behind the popular Christian song, and I’m gonna be honest, I liked it way more than The Avengers: Infinity Wars.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty burned out on superhero movies. Other than Star Wars, every big blockbuster now is a superhero movie and they’re pretty predictable. We all know that The Avengers will find a way to win in the second part of the movie in 2019.

And really, how many times can they save the world from an evil bad guy? It’s getting sorta boring.

What I liked about I Can Only Imagine is that unlike The Avengers, this movie was about real life. It was a real story about a real person, not a fictional character battling fictional problems.

Imagine had real life redemption. It showed the power of the only superhero that matters, Jesus Christ, and how He can change people’s lives forever.

We have a lot of broken people in the world looking for a real superhero. We need more stories like Imagine on the big screen that shows real life struggles and tells real stories and not just comic book tales. 

Jesus Christ is the real superhero.

Stormy Weather For Stormy's Business: Missouri Declares Pornography A Public Health Crisis 5/18/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Bad news for Stormy Daniels. Missouri has declared pornography a public health crisis.

According to The Daily Wire, Senate Concurring Resolution number 52 recognizes “pornography as leading to individual and societal harms and recognize the need for education, prevention, research, and policy change at the community and societal level."

The bill also blames the internet for exposing children to sexual content.

If the Missouri House passes the bill, the state will become the 10th state to declare porn a public health crisis.

While I do agree it’s a health crisis, it’s also a moral crisis that is ruining marriages, men young and old, and careers.

Pornography is just as dangerous as drugs and alcohol, and much easier for the young and old to access.

The government regulates tobacco advertisements and they also don’t allow sexually explicit content on broadcast TV because kids may see it. If the Democrats and the federal government want to regulate something on the internet like they want to do with net neutrality, let them regulate porn websites out of existence.
