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.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Saturday, July 18, 2015.
Planned Parenthood is lying to everyone, maybe even themselves.
The Tennessee gunman bought his guns illegally…
BREAKING: FBI: Man who attacked military sites in Tennessee purchased some of his guns illegally.

Surprise, surprise… Democrats like Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Famed liberal attorney Alan Dershowitz opines that the Obama administration left better deals on the table with Iran.
In Israel, Obama’s Iran deal has done something pretty significant… unite Israel’s liberals and conservatives against Obama.
President Obama and Secretary Kerry are playing games of pretend with our foreign policy.
What we have in the Iran deal is another instance of the ruling caste distorting reality to suit its ideological preferences. It is also the most dangerous instance. So much elite discourse resembles the game let’s pretend that it’s become difficult to restate what is true and what is false. Let’s act as if Iran negotiates in good faith, as if Greece can remain in the Euro, as if the Chinese have their economic situation under control, as if immigration policy had nothing to do with the murder of Kate Steinle, as if the Islamic State can be destroyed without major American involvement, as if you can promote racial antagonism and animosity toward police without an increase in crime and disorder, as if Hillary Clinton excites the Democratic Party, as if the Confederate flag was responsible for an act of racial terrorism in Charleston, as if we shouldn’t apply moral standards to Planned Parenthood’s traffic in fetal tissue, as if Caitlyn Jenner, peace be upon her, is more courageous than Lauren Hill or Noah Galloway. And let’s do all of this without considering the trade offs and missed opportunities, the externalities and sunk costs, of maintaining a culture grounded in wish fulfillment and infantilization.
There is, after all, only so much self-delusion a society can take before it loses its mind.
We are rapidly approaching that limit.
Didn’t the Obama administration tell us that ISIS would be gone by now?
Who are the Americans in this weird Donald Trump coalition?
Uh-oh. One teacher unions members want to jump from the Hillary ship!
The Apple company hates conservatives.
