So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Saturday January 18, 2014.

Man, our President sounds like a broken record. This time “he didn’t know about” the extent of NSA domestic and international spying! It’s almost as though our President doesn’t know anything…

Senator Rand Paul isn’t sure if he more or less concerned after hearing President Obama’s speech on NSA spying and the fact that the President plans on restricting their ability a little more. “I’m not sure if I am more or less concerned with having a private entity,” he said on CNN after Obama’s speech. “Who are we going to hire, [Edward] Snowden’s contractor to hold all the information? I don’t want them collecting the information. It is not about who holds it.”

Defending the 4th Amendment should be a partisan issue.

Julian Assange, erstwhile founder of Wikileaks, is not impressed with President Obama’s rhetoric on the NSA. He basically calls the President a big fat liar.

An NSA official with knowledge of the length and depth of the programs says that we are practically a “police state” already.

Here’s some scary news. Our admirals are saying that we are on the verge of losing our military dominance to China in the Pacific theater.

In 2013 almost 42,000 Canadians escaped to the USA for medical treatment because of the difficulty of operating within the socialist Canadian healthcare system. But this is what we’re trying to establish here?

Six years in… does Obama finally own the economy?

President Obama told fellow Democrats that John Boehner (R-OH) would get immigration reform passed in 2014.

The number of able-bodied adults without dependents on food stamps doubled in 2013!

Do you know what to do if you’re trying to escape a nuclear blast?
