What We’re Reading August 22, 2015

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.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Saturday August 22, 2015.

A good question to ask ourselves during this time of introspection: Are Republicans for Freedom or for White Identity Politics?

A classically liberal right is actually fairly uncommon in western democracies, requiring as it does a coalition that synthesizes populist tendencies and directs such frustrations toward the cause of limited government. Only the United States and Canada have successfully maintained one over an extended period. Now the popularity of Donald Trump suggests ours may be going away.

Hillary Clinton’s closes aides could very well face prosecution in the email investigation that Clinton finds herself embroiled in now. Perhaps this was the plan all along? Break the law in such a way that Clinton stays sheltered from it and won’t have to face the blowback?

Oh by the way, DOZENS of Hillary’s emails were ALWAYS classified. She’s been lying.

Republicans are doing a better job of getting good candidates to run for office at the statewide level than the Democrats are. In fact, at this point the GOP even has more women running than the Democrats!

Now we know why the media isn’t reporting on the Planned Parenthood murder scandal.

A white police officer killed a young black man but the father of the man who died isn’t laying blame.

In some brilliant analysis the Ezra Institute tackles the question – Why are America’s youth leaving the church?

Youth programs and activities are not sufficient to stem the tide of young people leaving the church. The church’s best investment in young adults is to confront difficult questions, preach relevant sermons, and reclaim the sense of God’s mission for the church.
