What We’re Reading August 5, 2013
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 Monday August 5, 2013.
The President’s birthday was yesterday, August 4th, and we would like to wish him belatedly – the happiest of birthdays. We will celebrate with him, on the day he leaves office.
This week is a big week for our counterterrorism efforts. Apparently al-Qaeda has something very big planned, so big in fact, that we have shut down a bunch of our embassies and closed their doors for at least a week, Some of our counterterrorism people say that we haven’t seen anything like this since before 9/11.
Jim DeMint says al-Qaeda is stronger than ever. Oh, they think President Obama is weak too.
Bill Kristol reminisces about President Obama’s speech just about a year ago, when he told us al-Qaeda was on the run. Somehow, a year later… we’re the ones running?
The FBI is pushing Internet providers to make it even easier to spy on people using the internet. Soon they’ll be asking us to mount an FBI camera in our home so they can easily monitor our everyday terrorist actions.
The brilliant George Will calls out Chris Christie for his attack on Rand Paul.
Lindsey Graham thinks he’s like Ronald Reagan… he’s a funny dude, that Graham.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) calls Edward Snowden a “whistle blower” not a traitor.
Sin taxes don’t work.
Um, this guy paddle boarded from Cuba to the U.S.A. Should we be keeping an eye out for a Cuban paddle board navy?
