So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Wednesday July 16, 2014.

The VA Scandal keeps getting worse and worse, all while spreading further throughout the system. The Inspector General’s Office is now investigating VA claims offices in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Oakland, Houston, and Little Rock, Arkansas. While this may have started in Phoenix, there is no telling where it will end.

Our military leaders and intelligence officials have lost all confidence in President Obama as Commander-in-Chief and strategist for the war on terror.

The GOP establishment is working very hard to shut down the Rand Paul (R-KY) train before it even gets going. Will their strategy work, or will it end up backfiring on them?

Awwwww… feel bad for President Obama. His aides say that he has cabin fever from having to work out of the White House, so the President is hitting the road. And Republicans believe this could work to their advantage.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) says that the current immigration crisis wouldn’t have been stopped by the Gang of 8 legislation that he used to support.

An “endless” wave of illegal immigrants is flooding the Rio Grande valley and there is no end in sight.

“You’re going to be out here a long time,” Fernando, an El Salvadoran child, told FoxNews.com shortly after surrendering to Border Patrol authorities after midnight Saturday. “There are thousands of us.”
