We hope you’re having a great Tuesday 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 Tuesday July 30, 2013.
Glenn Beck confronts Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) over her opposition to the recently failed Amash amendment to curb NSA snooping powers. It’s nice to hear Beck fighting mainstream Republicans on this, because it’s a real issue. Listen to the interview and I am sure that you, like me, will come away feeling like Bachmann may be regretting her decision to support the NSA.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) says “scared” D.C. Republicans will be at fault if the Republican Party can’t repeal Obamacare.
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) says the GOP “elite” are not in touch with mainstream Republicans on the immigration issue. I would argue that Mr. Sessions is right, and that the GOP leadership is out of touch with conservatives on a lot of issues.
One of the highest ranking officials at the IRS commutes to work, just like you and me… only she commutes by plane… from Texas.
A survivor of human trafficking has one piece of advice for police agencies – “Go after the johns…” The people who pay money for these “services” should be punished to the full extent of the law, without them the pimps and slavers have no profit motive. No john means no money – so yes, go after the johns.
President Obama sure does love giving good paying jobs to his buddies.
The Pope isn’t sure he should be judging gay Catholics. My question is this: If the Bible says homosexuality (and or homosexual practice) is wrong, and the Pope is supposed to be the representative of God on earth… then isn’t he supposed to be the guy that is doing the judging? Feels weak Pope Francis.
Are you ready to watch Hollywood get all lovey-dovey with Hillary Clinton? It’s coming…
Tim Tebow is a quarterback!
