What We’re Reading May 19, 2016

Written by eaglerising

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, Thursday, May 19, 2016.

The Democrat Party is in disarray.

Hillary Clinton may have won in Kentucky but she looks weaker than ever. While “Bernie” Bernard Sanders almost won Kentucky, he came away the clear winner in Oregon.

Hillary Clinton better be careful because she CANNOT win in November without the help of Bernie Sanders and his supporters.

The latest study of the issue finds that genetically engineered crops are completely safe.

“The inescapable conclusion, after reading the report, is the G.E. crops are pretty much just crops. They are not the panacea that some proponents claim, nor the dreaded monsters that others claim.”

A High School Senior in Minnesota had been suspended and threatened with the loss of graduation privileges for flying a Confederate flag in his car. Now the school will allow him to walk at his graduation.

A hearty “way to go” for Nebraska which finally abolished the unfair and immoral practice of Civil Asset Forfeiture. Now it will require a criminal conviction if the state wants to take your property. (Yes, this is a thing in most of the country.)

“Civil forfeiture is one of the most serious assaults on due process and private property rights in America today,” IJ’s Legislative Counsel Lee McGrath said in a statement. “Today’s decision to abolish civil forfeiture will ensure that only convicted criminals—and not innocent Nebraskans—lose their property to forfeiture.”

Don’t expect Senator [score]Marco Rubio[/score] (R-FL) to leave Florida and become a lobbyist now that it appears his Senate career may be winding to a close. “I’m not going to be a lobbyist, just not going to do that, not interested in that. I’m not moving to New York and working on Wall Street,” Senator Rubio told a South Florida radio show.

Senator [score]John McCain[/score] (R-AZ) is in trouble in Arizona.
