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 Thursday, September 17, 2015.
Governor Bobby Jindal continues his recent string of attacks on fellow GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump. CNN just published an OpEd in which Jindal excoriates the Trump campaign while laying out his arguments against the billionaire politician.
The GOP establishment is so scared of Donald Trump that they’ve actually begun to whisper about pushing Mitt Romney into the race.
The European refugee crisis is making some observers wonder if maybe, just maybe, military strongmen like Saddam Hussein (Iraq), Hosni Mubarak (Egypt) and Moammar Gadhafi (Libya) have a place in keeping the world “safe”.
In Germany the refugee crisis has pushed more German voters toward the “right-wing” of their national politics. See, as illegal immigration continues to prove how destabilizing and harmful it can be, and as moderate and left-wing politicians choose to pretend that it’s not a problem… more voters realize that left-wing policies don’t work and they turn to the right. Sadly, in Europe, some of these “right-wing” parties are not actually right-wing. They are national socialists (yes, just like the Nazi’s), so while they are against illegal immigration they are also socialists! (That’s left-wing, bub.)
The Obama White House is considering entering into conversations with Vladimir Putin and Russia on a way forward in Syria.
Could conservatives toss Boehner and replace him with Kevin McCarthy? It’s not an ideological change… but it is a change.
