What We’re Reading April 7, 2015

We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!

It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Tuesday, April 7, 2015.

The battle over religious liberty has made stunningly clear the raging intolerance and uncomfortable bigotry of the modern American left.

One law professor at a prestigious University is very worried that America has completely lost its way on religious liberty. “The sad thing,” he said, “is that the old ways of aspiring to truth, seeing all knowledge as part of learning about the nature of reality, they don’t hold. It’s all about power. They’ve got cultural power, and think they should use it for good, but their idea of good is not anchored in anything. They’ve got a lot of power in courts and in politics and in education. Their job is to challenge people to think critically, but thinking critically means thinking like them. They really do think that they know so much more than anybody did before, and there is no point in listening to anybody else, because they have all the answers, and believe that they are good.”

Finally some colleges are getting their acts together and actually supporting free speech instead of bowing to liberal fascist pressure and pretending that free speech is only allowed off campus.

The Federalist has a wonderful interview with Presidential hopeful (and soon to be candidate) Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) about all things popular… and ISIS.

CNN warns liberals (and voters in general) that Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer won’t be the Democrats who take on Wall Street.

What, if anything, should Republicans do about President Obama’s bad deal with Iran?

If you’re a Republican congressional leader, your best option is probably to mostly go along with the deal. Be skeptical and hedge, emphasize the need for verification and keep a spotlight on the situation — but don’t try to blow up the framework before the “final deal” is announced in June. And I would try to placate the rank-and-file in Congress with something other than a vote on the agreement, which would only incite the Iranians and do nothing to make Obama take firmer action.

This is probably the best deal that can be reached while Obama is still president. We don’t want a complete breakdown with Iran or for the Iranians to begin running full-throttle for a nuclear bomb while Obama is still in the White House. Let’s face it: Obama isn’t going to use force to stop the Iranians from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The Iranians know it, we know it, everybody knows it.

It’s here! It’s finally here! Baseball season is finally back – welcome to 2015!
