What We’re Reading February 19, 2016

Written by Onan Coca

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, Friday, February 19, 2016.

It’s a little late, O. The President now “regrets” filibustering Justice Samuel Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

The biggest reason that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) won’t allow President Obama’s next Supreme Court nominee to come up for a vote in the Senate? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Cruz sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the nomination hearings would give him a major platform to showcase himself against Obama.

President Obama believes that Justice Antonin Scalia was “one of the most consequential judges and thinkers” to ever serve on the Supreme Court, but he won’t be attending his funeral. Meanwhile, here are 6 other funerals that President Obama did attend.

One of Louisiana’s most influential and important conservative pundits, Scott McKay, talks about Ted Cruz and the idea that Donald Trump may be “unstoppable.” The latest NBC/WSJ poll makes Mr. Trump seem vulnerable, though, as it shows Cruz in the lead nationally!

Donald Trump just promised to defund Planned Parenthood if/when he’s elected president!

Why did the brilliant conservative, Thomas Sowell, endorse Ted Cruz? The National Review says it’s a mistake to attack Cruz on Military Funding and National Security.

Obama finally cut something from the budget… so-called “abstinence only” sex education.

While young people like Senator “Bernie” Bernard Sanders (I-VT), older folks have the experience to understand why he’s terrible.

Christian socialism” is necessarily anti-Christian.
