So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Friday, June 19, 2015.

Las Vegas, Nevada was the site of this year’s annual National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO), and the attendees had hoped to meet and hear from several Presidential candidates. Sadly, the only Republican to appear was Dr. Ben Carson.

The House of Representatives narrowly passed the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) on Thursday, even with House Democrats leading a revolt against it.

Rush Limbaugh thinks some conservatives are too tough on Donald Trump and not tough enough on Hillary Clinton.

“If the conservative media would hit Hillary with one-tenth of what they’re hitting Trump with, it might matter! It’s incredible. Hillary Clinton gets more respect than Trump gets from the conservative media.”

Jeb Bush was stumping through Iowa where he made an impassioned plea for voters to support him and to support his call for amnesty as part of comprehensive immigration reform.

“I’m a committed conservative, a reformer. I have a record, and I’m going to share that record each and every day, and I’m going to do it with joy in my heart. I’m going to do it with love for this country. I’m going to do it in a way that draws people toward our cause,” Bush said.

“Here’s the deal—Democrats win with this politically. If we just keep this lingering forever and ever, it’s a wedge issue that at least for the last two presidential races, we’ve lost,” Bush said. “I want to win!”

The recent hack of the civilian-run OPM was an “absolute calamity” according to military officials.

Now the government has admitted that they may not have followed their own cyberspace rules and that may have left the door open for the Chinese to hack us.

Ironic. Alexander Hamilton, the father of the national bank and the man who dreamed up our single currency will soon no longer be on that currency. Meanwhile, Andrew Jackson, who destroyed the first national bank and hated our monetary system… will remain on the $20 bill.
