What We’re Reading September 17, 2014

We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!

It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Wednesday September 17, 2014.

Oh boy. We hate ISIS… and we want to hit them just as much as the next guy, but I can’t think of a worse person to speak out for intervention than John McCain (other than maybe Lindsey Graham). This is just a terrible argument for going to war – “I’ve been there! They promised me they would behave!” I don’t think so John.

An important leader in the Democrat Party is demanding that President Obama come to Congress for war authorization before sending the military back to Iraq and possibly into Syria. He’s right, of course, even if some Republicans want to give Obama the go-ahead before he even asks. The President may be the Commander-in-Chief, but the decision to go to war belongs to the people… aka the Legislature.

Here’s a problem – very similar to what we face in Guantanamo – what do we do with our terrorist prisoners? No trial? No due process? Indefinite detention? That all seems just a bit… “unAmerican.”

Team Hillary knows that the soon-to-start Benghazi hearings are going to get very, very ugly. With that in mind, they are gearing up to spin all of the new information that will doubtless come forth during the hearings.

Hey is there a rehab of the Republican brand going on? Kind-of, sort-of…

A new poll shows that residents of Ferguson, Missouri think that the media made everything about the recent Ferguson unrest worse.

The Ebola outbreak is still getting worse…
