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 Thursday September 11, 2014.
On this, the 13th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, we at Eagle Rising want to thank the men and women in our armed forces for all they do to serve our nation.

Harry Reid is urging President Obama to “go REAL big” if he chooses to move forward with issuing an Executive Order on amnesty (after the midterm elections, of course). “If they don’t, I hope the president goes real big, and does something administratively, as I believe he has the authority to do,” Reid told reporters emphatically Tuesday.
“This is an example of why we should have done comprehensive immigration reform that we passed here more than a year ago,” Reid also said. “The president has stated that he was going to do something administratively unless there is legislative action taken. It appears to me, based on what we have been told and what I’ve seen, the Republicans still have a chance to do something.”
Why do we even need a Legislature, if the President can simply make laws whenever he wants?
MSNBC’s Chuck Todd says that President Obama is “on the precipice of doing Jimmy Carter-like damage to the Democrat Party brand on foreign policy.”
