What We're Reading Eagle Rising

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, January 23, 2016.

Happy Saturday! We are now just over one week away from the first primary states voting for their candidates, and things are starting to get crazy. Hopefully we can help you dig through the craziness to find some sanity in the mess.

Abortion is not about female empowerment. Which is why the leaders of the pro-life movement are mostly women.

Have you ever wondered if anyone had listed Bernie Sanders’ silliest proposals online? Well, now someone has. The Daily Wire has a list of Bernie’s 10 zaniest and unworkable ideas.

The Establishment has an irrational fear of Ted Cruz, and it could cost us the 2016 election.

Donald Trump has a LONG history of abusing eminent domain for his own purposes; in fact, he’s called theft of private property for his benefit a “wonderful” thing. Would C.S. Lewis have called Donald Trump “Nikabrik’s Candidate”?

The eminent conservative economist and thinker, Thomas Sowell, has some hard words for GOP voters. “Today’s big puzzle is how so many otherwise rational people have become enamored of Donald Trump, projecting onto him virtues and principles that he clearly does not have, and ignoring gross defects that are all too blatant.” Sowell wonders if emotions now trump facts in the GOP?

Conservative pundit Dana Loesch is also bewildered by the idea that so many conservatives are actually considering voting for Donald Trump. “It is not conservative to bastardize the fifth amendment and say that ’eminent domain, we can actually collude with private businesses, and not for public use, to go after private property owners and take their property without even fair compensation or just compensation as it is written constitutionally.”

 An American college student has been arrested for “anti-state” acts in North Korea.
