So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Tuesday August 12, 2014.

Republican candidate for Senator from Colorado, Cory Gardner, just released a devastating attack ad on his opponent, Senator Mark Udall (D-CO).

The ad underlines Democrats’ biggest weakness going into the November Midterms… Obamacare.

President Obama told lawmakers that any criticism of his Syria policy, including from Hillary Clinton, was all “horsesh*t.”

A heroic mission by the Iraqi air force and Kurdish fighters carried much needed supplies to desperate Yazidis who were under siege from ISIS in Iraq’s mountainous region.

This is the kind of evil that Israel is fighting… a recent report says that Hamas has executed dozens of their tunnel diggers in an effort to ensure the security of their “terror tunnels”.

The family of a rabbi murdered in South Florida believes that the crime was more likely a hate crime than “a robbery gone wrong.”

Crimes against Jews have risen across the country in recent days…

Um…gross. A 25-year-old woman from Illinois is preparing to become the wife of 79 year-old Charles Manson. Gross.
