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.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday, April 27, 2015.
The Clinton Family Foundation scandal continues to grow and metastasize in ways that no one could have predicted. Andrew McCarthy at PJMedia wonders if we might be seeing the beginning of a RICO case (the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1971). Meanwhile, the New York Post wonders if we’re watching Hillary Clinton on the brink of collapse.
If it seems like no one in the GOP Presidential field seems nervous about Jeb Bush… it’s because no one in the GOP Presidential field is nervous about Jeb Bush! Bush is seemingly stalled in the water and the many knocks against him, from taxes, to education, to spending, to gay marriage and more, aren’t going away.
Carly Fiorina hasn’t officially announced her candidacy for President, yet… but she’s getting a lot of folks excited. Can she turn that positive energy into momentum?
The government’s seizure of AIG was a BIG mistake, and this summer a federal court may finally hand the government a devastating $40 Billion blow. While liberal newspapers mostly mocked the AIG lawsuit when it began… no one is laughing now, as there is every chance that the court could decide that the government acted unconstitutionally when it seized AIG.
Maybe the Times reporter doesn’t read The Post, but I warned on these pages back in October that the lawsuit was “no joke.” A commentator in the Times had called the case “ludicrous,” The New Republic dubbed it “mostly insane” and The New Yorker “absurdist comedy.”
But, I wrote, the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution — which says that the government can’t take private property for public use without due process and just compensation — is no laughing matter. It is our nation’s most basic protection of property rights.
Liberals continue cheering President Obama’s global warming maneuvers even as they ignore the massive failures that his policies have been.
Liberals sweat as they begin to realize that Obamacare may end up killing Medicare!
It’s been 200 years but the French still don’t want people to gloat about their loss at Waterloo.
