What We’re Reading April 9, 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, Saturday, April 9, 2016.

The big story brewing… Those Veterans’ Charities that Donald Trump promised to raise money for… are still waiting for Trump to give them their money.

Statistician extraordinaire Nate Silver has some worrying news for the Donald Trump campaign. As the bar for winning the nomination continues to rise, Mr. Trump’s support is not rising in a corresponding manner.

However, there is much more to worry about. It seems that Ted Cruz (R-TX) had his best fundraising month of the campaign in March — and the money wasn’t coming from rich GOP donors.

According to the campaign, it has now raised more than $78 million over the course of the campaign, which kicked off last March, from more than 450,000 donors. The average donation is $52 – lower than what it had been over the past few months.

Hillary Clinton’s biggest problem isn’t “Bernie” Bernard Sanders , it’s the Freedom of Information Act and her predilection for crime/corruption. In fact, Hillary’s many, many weaknesses make her a weaker frontrunner than Donald Trump.

Actually, the Panama Papers reflect pretty well on Capitalism.

Obama’s Former Pentagon leaders say that the military has suffered during the Obama era.

Border Patrol Agents are now saying that illegal immigrants are being released into our nation and the government has no idea who these people are.

Sesame Street now has a hijab-wearing Muslim feminist from Afghanistan muppet on the show. Seriously.

The Pope just threw the Bible out the window. Catholic blogger Matt Walsh explains why the Pope is wrong.
