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 Friday, June 26, 2015.

Meet Democrat Jim Webb (D-VA), who’d one day like to be President but is probably hurting his chances by being one of the few Democrat voices of reason on the Confederate flag debate.

Former Dukes of Hazard actor John Schneider is sticking up for the General Lee and anyone other non-racist flying the Confederate battle flag. “Labeling anyone who has the flag a ‘racist’ seems unfair to those who are clearly ‘never meanin’ no harm,’ ” Schneider said.

For better or for worse, Bernie Saners (D-VT) is here. Bernie Sanders is a thing that is happening. “The Vermont Independent has drawn huge crowds of supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire, and pulled within striking distance of Clinton in some Granite State polls.” 

Hillary Clinton’s constant evasion and smarmy political obfuscations are overpowering any message she was hoping to convey.

Over at the National Review Jonah Goldberg writes that the dignity with which the people of Charleston have responded to this tragedy “flies in the face of the Left’s uninformed, anti-South bigotry.” We agree wholeheartedly.

Kevin Williamson writes that we have reached peak leftist activism in America and it is not pretty.

Don’t feel bad for the nation of Greece, which is smack dab in the middle of an economic collapse – they deserve what is happening to them after decades of socialist mismanagement. This is what you get when you choose socialism.
