What We’re Reading May 2, 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 Saturday, May 2, 2015.

Liberals are in such a rush to excuse the violence and mayhem in Baltimore that they completely miss the point of the entire debacle. There are many more problems festering in Baltimore than ‘just’ an overly aggressive (perhaps even brutal) police force.

President Obama’s response to the Baltimore unrest was absolutely terrible.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has jumped into the 2016 Presidential race as a Democrat – but there are many reasons to believe that he’s not seriously considering a challenge against Hillary Clinton. One reason that Sanders should be worried is that Clinton has already starting shifting to the left in preparation for a nomination fight.

By the way, has anyone else noticed that the people trying to defend Hillary Clinton’s malfeasance are all doing a terrible job of it?

It’s Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) vs. Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) on the immigration debate. And the National Review argues that this debate is the one we should really be having.

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush (R-FL) is still way off base on immigration (literally). Except he is now hedging a bit, only willing to say that he “thinks” he’s right about amnesty and immigration… and his response to conservative ideas on immigration are all positive… so is Jeb pulling back to the right on immigration?

“Maybe I’m stubborn,” Bush said. “I’m willing to listen to other views on this, and I hope we’ll have a dialogue about this. But I think I’m right about this.”

Surprise, surprise! The faculty at Harvard overwhelmingly supports the Democrat Party with their money. Now the question is, how much of that bias leaks over to how the professors in the University are teaching their students?

Police officers in the Capitol leave their firearms in the darnedest places!
