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.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Thursday, February 11, 2016.
Will Obama’s greatest legacy be one of secrecy and oppression?
A little post-New Hampshire analysis from Steve Deace:
Another interesting tidbit… almost half of New Hampshire’s GOP primary voters were not actually Republicans.
Sadly for “Bernie” [score]Bernard Sanders[/score] (I-VT) and his fans, even though he crushed Clinton in New Hampshire… she’ll still leave the state with at least as many delegates as him… and perhaps MORE!
Surprise! Another story about the immoral behavior of the Clinton team. This one includes blackmailing journalists who then happily do as the Clintons have commanded.
Some folks are trying to smear [score]Ted Cruz[/score] (R-TX) as “anti-homeschooling,” but the truth is that no GOP candidate has been a greater advocate for homeschoolers than Cruz.
The Democrats have a confusing relationship with science. On both abortion and economics they just throw the facts and data out of the window…

Senator [score]John McCain[/score] (R-AZ) is not happy with the turn towards torture that the last GOP debate took.
Is Jeb Dead?
The “flavors” of tyranny.
Remember that the Nazis and Communists hated each other in the interwar period and, of course, fought each other to the bloody end in the war itself. After the Nazis lost control of the nations they conquered, the Communists swept in, trading one tyranny for another.
To imagine that these systems somehow represent polar opposites is bizarre. Both systems extolled the primacy of the state. Both practiced economic central planning. Both upheld the nation over the individual. Both created a cult of leadership. Both experiments in top-down social order ended in calamity and massive violations of human rights.
How could these two systems, so similar in operation, be so antagonistic? I guess you had to be there.
Oddly, we are there now. When it comes to politics, it’s the 1930s all over again — or at least an updated version.
