What We’re Reading November 16, 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, Monday, November 16, 2015.

This is a must read: What ISIS really wants

Over the weekend, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) reminded voters in Florida that Marco Rubio (R-FL) was one of the politicians who stood against him when he tried to get a border security amendment passed in 2013.

Paul’s “trust but verify” amendment would have required Congress to vote on whether the border was sufficiently secure before allowing increased immigration. It would require the completion of a border fence and created a national identification card system for citizens. 

The amendment hit the floor during Senate deliberations on the immigration bill in 2013, but senators voted 61-37 to table the provision. Rubio, and the other Republican members of the “Gang of Eight” that crafted the bill, voted against the measure.

Rubio’s “Gang of Eight” Amnesty problem is probably why he’s begun attacking Ted Cruz on illegal immigration, but it’s a bad move and will likely backfire.

Instead of being havens for free speech, America’s colleges have become havens of freedom FROM speech.

Some of Europe’s leaders have their heads buried in the sand on terrorism and the flood of Syrian refugees. Apparently the Democrat candidates for President are also choosing to ignore reality. Iraq tried to warn everyone that ISIS was coming West… but we didn’t listen.

The Paris attacks have made President Obama’s strategies, rhetoric and actions on Syria seem incredibly foolhardy. By the way, Obama is wrong about ISIS, he doesn’t have them contained. Not at all.

Will right-wing parties in Europe find new supporters in the aftermath of the Paris attack?

The Democrat party at large is hoping for a Trump/Carson ticket in 2016.

The Flat Tax is more popular today than ever before.
