So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Monday, December 14, 2015.

Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party have some major problems when it comes to standing up to terrorists, and voters are starting to get worried.

And so it begins… Donald Trump seems to be preparing the way for his forthcoming attacks on Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Why is Trump turning on Cruz now? He may be worried about the Senator from Texas stealing his thunder. Cruz has moved ahead of Trump in Iowa and into 2nd place in many of the states that Trump has dominated for so long, but the big news is that Cruz has surged nationally. Cruz is now solidly in 2nd place, nationally trailing Trump by JUST 5 Points!

It’s not just Trump that has turned on Cruz, Chris Christie is now attacking the conservative Texas Senator as well.

Some conservatives think a Trump run for the White House (as an independent) might actually be a good thing for the GOP.

So apparently this is a thing we have to worry about now… Jihadi Brides.

America’s “Islam Problem” is real and concerning. While our politicians might like to pretend the issue doesn’t exist, most Americans don’t have that luxury. We are worried.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) is trying to rehab Congress’s image while also helping solidify the GOP’s stranglehold on leadership. To do this, Ryan argues that the GOP must be “inclusive.”

“I come from the pro-growth wing of the Republican movement. I believe in an aspirational type of conservative that should prevail for lots of reasons, for moral reasons and because I think it’s more successful. This is another chapter in that long evolving story.”
