What We’re Reading July 8, 2016

Written by eaglerising

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, Friday, July 8, 2016.

Switzerland institutes a burqa ban. Two women are already being fined for violating it.

For some reason a security guard at the U.S. embassy in Moscow decked a U.S. diplomat. The fight was caught on camera. Now, congress is investigating.

Doesn’t it drive you nuts when someone’s driving slowly in the fast lane? More states are cracking down on them with “slowpoke” laws, in an effort to “reduce congestion, frustration and accidents.”

Ted Cruz and Donald Trump met together. Cruz said Trump invited him to speak at the Republican National Convention. Cruz agreed.

Comey justifies his decision not to press charges against Clinton:  “In a wide-ranging appearance before the House oversight committee, Comey also said Clinton’s email practices put America’s secrets at risk and her actions constituted the ‘definition of carelessness.’ At the same time, Comey staunchly defended the bureau’s decision not to pursue charges. He also said, ‘We have no basis to conclude that [Clinton] lied to the FBI.'”

Speaker Paul Ryan is thinking of ways to punish Democrats for their gun control sit-in protest.

Speaking of the Speaker and punishment, he’s moving to prohibit Hillary Clinton from accessing any classified material. Ryan wrote to the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper: “Given the FBI’s findings, denying Secretary Clinton access to classified information certainly constitutes appropriate sanctions. This is necessary to reassure the public that our nation’s secrets are secure.”

According to the New York TimesDonald Trump’s biggest obstacle to face is Florida: “The big demographic threat to the Republican Party isn’t a ‘blue’ Texas or Arizona or Georgia, but the possibility that Florida will follow Nevada and New Mexico to the left.”

Bernie Sanders will endorse Hillary Clinton next week.
