Trending: Hillary Clinton Says Something Absolutely Insane

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Thursday December 25, 2014.

Merry Christmas! Christmas is our favorite holiday because of the meaning it inherently owns. Christmas is a celebration of God incarnating Himself as a human all to bring about our ultimate redemption to Himself. If not for God’s decision to come down and save us – we would be without hope. Praise the Lord for Christmas!

Christmas has become very BIG business in China.

As persecution against Christians continue to rise in Pakistan, so does Pakistani support and celebration of Christmas.

“The entire process is so perfect for a child,” the 32-year-old online journalist said. “The request to Santa, the anticipation while decorating the tree, the excitement of waking up in the morning to wrapped presents, it is almost like Christmas is made for all children all over the world — regardless of religion or culture.”

Why is Marco Rubio supporting an old-school foreign policy instead of embracing new-school methods to deal with Cuba?

Jeb Bush vs. Ted Cruz for the soul of our Party. This is a brilliant summation of what is happening in today’s Republican Party.

This is the dirty secret of the modern Republican Party: For all the talk about grassroots exasperation with the Republican elites, it is the Republican elites who despise the grassroots. Republican elites do not believe in the dismantling of the welfare state; they believe in its maintenance. They do not believe in the unsophisticated free marketeering of the tea party; they believe in a strong government hand on the economic tiller, so long as that hand is benevolent toward their friends. They do not believe in small government; they believe in large government that serves their ends. If given the choice, a few would even select Hillary Clinton as president over Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

Americans have a duty to express unpopular opinions.

Adam Sandler has been named the most overpaid actor in Hollywood for the 2nd year in a row.
