So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Thursday August 7, 2014.

President George W. Obama is getting ready to meet the midterms… and the outcome may be grim.

What was John Kerry thinking? By seeking reconciliation with Iran, Washington alienates its allies and contributes to ever greater mayhem in the Middle East.

Who assassinated a Two Star Major General Harold Greene in Afghanistan?

This is where the mandating of politically correct speech leads us – a gardening show in England is being attacked as “racist” and “nativisitic” because of the common gardening discussions heard on the show.  Dr Ben Pitcher, a senior lecturer in sociology at the University of Westminster, claimed the programme’s regular discussions on soil purity and non-native species promoted nationalist and fascist beliefs. This may sound funny… but it is not a joke.

President Obama is not only unreliable as President, but he is unreliable as an “ally” for Congress as they try to get things done.

Democrats are starting to get very nervous about the upcoming midterm elections … even if they have a hard time admitting it. In fact, they are getting so nervous that they are throwing everything, including the kitchen sink, at their Republican foes.

Uh-oh! Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has a fan on MSNBC!
