So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Friday September 6, 2013.

The good folks at Red State try to figure out why the GOP leadership is going along with President Obama on the war with Syria. Their answer makes Republican leaders look pretty stupid… so it’s probably right. Yikes.

Pat Buchanan has some harsh words for this administration. In his opinion piece he says, “U.S. soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen as the mercenaries of sheikhs, sultans and emirs, Hessians of the New World Order, hired out to do the big-time killing for Saudi and Sunni royals?” Ouch.

Congressional approval for war in Syria looks like a longshot for the Obama administration. Does this mean he will decide on his own to send our troops into battle? That unprecedented move could trigger a huge shockwave through the nation.

The New Republic attacks Rand Paul for caring about Syrian Christians.

despotThousands are feared dead in North Korea after the closing of one of many of that nation’s prison camps.

A new non-discrimination bill in San Antonio, Texas may actually be a license to discriminate against Christians.

New Mexico will likely see the worst rate increases in the country due to Obamacare… their projected rate hike is 130%.

Parents who home school worry that common core may become a burden on their activities.

Pat Sajak has some fun at President Obama’s expense… very funny.

You may have heard the rumors… but they’re not true. Jack Nicholson is not retiring.

Star Wars was almost very different. Kind of.
