So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Wednesday May 14, 2014.

The Tea Party is hoping for a revival of the cause in Nebraska. The candidate for Nebraska Senator, who is the favorite among conservatives (including the Tea Party), says that he would indeed support Mitch McConnell as leader of the Republican majority in the Senate.

Marco Rubio (R-FL) believes that every American should get a chance to join the Cadillac retirement plan that Congress currently enjoys.

Whoops-a-daisy… the economy actually contracted last quarter. Seems this economy isn’t buzzing along at quite the pace liberals would have us believe it is…

Yet another close-minded campus has forced the invited speaker to cancel their plans to be there. What is happening in Academia today? The attack on diversity is stunning…

A top Republican, Senator Rob Portman, (R-OH) has joined the efforts of liberal and libertarian politicians to end the war on drugs.

“President Obama recently announced that he would grant clemency to hundreds of non-violent drug offenders,” Portman is set to say Tuesday in a speech at the American Enterprise Institute. “That may be within his power, but it’s like placing a Band-Aid on a deep wound. It may cover up the problem of prison overcrowding today, but it doesn’t address the deeper problem that drives recidivism.”
