What We’re Reading August 5, 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 information every single day.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Friday, August 5, 2016:

United Nations backs a federalization of America’s police departments:  “That was United Nations Rapporteur Maina Kai on July 27, a representative of the U.N. Human Rights Council, who on the tail-end of touring the U.S., endorsed a little-known and yet highly controversial practice by the Justice Department to effect a federal takeover of local police and corrections departments.”

Record gun sales for 15 months straight.

Supreme Court temporarily rules against trans teen:  “The Supreme Court intervened for the first time Wednesday in the controversy over transgender rights and blocked a lower court ruling that would have allowed a transgender boy to use the high school restroom that fits his ‘gender identity.’ In an unusual 5-3 order, the justices granted an emergency appeal from a Virginia school board, which said it is fighting to ‘protect the basic expectations of bodily privacy of Gloucester County students.'” 

The rise of after-school “Satan clubs.”

Martyred French Priest’s last words:  “Be gone, Satan!”

French police on alert for Afghan “refugee” who may be plotting a terrorist attack.

Actor Clint Eastwood had some harsh words to say about politics and this generation of people.

Black Lives Matter leader:  “The Clintons use black people for votes, but then don’t do anything for black communities after they’re elected. They use us for photo ops.”

First human head transplant scheduled for December, 2017.
