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, January 4, 2016.

From Hillary Clinton’s Camp…
In New Hampshire the presumptive Democrat candidate for president decided to throw the families of the Benghazi dead under the bus when she practically called them all liars.
Hillary Clinton’s emails say that German chancellor Angela Merkel apparently despises Obama’s political practices.
New York’s socialist mayor, Bill De Blasio, is LAZY, Tone-Deaf and a drag on America’s most important city.
That’s weird. Denver’s marijuana business happens mostly in low-income, minority neighborhoods and is disproportionately affecting lower-income Coloradans.
