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, Wednesday, February 17, 2016.

The brilliant economist, pundit, philosopher, thinker and educator Thomas Sowell just endorsed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for President. Cruz is the conservative in the race, everyone else is just posing.

Socialism is PIRACY.

There are only two things that need to be grasped about the piracy that is socialism. The first is that the government can give nothing to anyone that it has not first taken from someone else. If they dump a bucket into your part of the pool, they filled it up somewhere else. The second thing is that all who advocate “more water for the middle class” either understand what is being said or not. If they don’t understand it, then they are economic fools — regardless of having a 10th grade education that enables them to track with a Sanders speech. And if they do understand it, and are in it for the pillage opportunities, then they have opted for a future of mendacious corruption. But why go anywhere down the road for that? You already have Clinton.

Moreover, Capitalism is Freedom, and Socialism is Slavery.

Hillary Clinton’s closest aides are starting to get nervous about the many investigations their boss is wrapped up in. While it’s not likely that any Clinton will ever spend anytime in jail (though they deserve it), it is indeed probable that at least some of her aides will be punished for her crimes.

Even liberal academics are starting to realize the benefit and need of gun ownership.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a stirring tribute to her buddy, justice Antonin Scalia. Justice Scalia will be missed because of opinions like these… and these.

Pundit and former politician Patrick Buchanan argues that President Obama and the Senate should leave Scalia’s seat vacant for now.

Some Global Warming hysteria truth – the West’s attempts to save the planet from ecological disaster is simply a “slush fund” for 3rd world dictators.

Kanye West doesn’t want “white publications” like Rolling Stone commenting on “black music.”

Sad news as a wonderful man, intellectual giant and brilliant theologian has passed away. Dr. Charles Ryrie passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 90.
