No way Trump actually escapes jail this time…right?

Donald Trump’s web of lies has left him entangled in something I don’t think even a person like him can escape. Not even his popularity can save him from the sheer amount of evidence stacked against him in this case. The former president was indicted for the second time this year following a lengthy investigation and raid of his Florida home for classified documents he had failed to turn over. This story takes us back to 2020, following his defeat in the presidential election. When …

Trump: From White House to courthouse

On November 16, 2016, the United States of America and the world at large was forever negatively changed. On that day, Donald Trump won the 2016 presidency and, in the following year, on a bitter January day, his presidency was confirmed at the Inauguration in D.C.  Donald Trump, the well known spoiled New York socialite, was not expected to win the coveted position as one of the most powerful figures in the world—however he did. In his time as president, Donald Trump pissed off the …

Chappelle tells white people to ‘come get these n**** lessons’

Once again, Dave Chappelle proved to be poignant, cynical, straight-forward, and most importantly, downright hilarious in between smoking a cigarette, live on-stage while hosting “Saturday Night Live.” If white America thought life was going to get any easier now that Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election, Chappelle politely reminds them of the misery and despair that was conveniently forgotten prior to the Trump campaign. 

Aftermath: Threats and false claims of a stolen election

Election Day 2020 took place across America Tuesday, Nov. 3, and there had been much anxiety and turmoil surrounding what the results would be because of President Trump’s widespread and no-basis allegations of voter fraud. Businesses boarded up in anticipation of rioting but what ensued were lies and stubbornness from Trump and his supporters. On the night of the election, though several swing states were too close to call, Trump claimed victory in a 2:30 a.m. speech. He was apparently wrong. On Saturday morning, Nov. …

Trumps dangerous obsession with bogus mail-in voter fraud?

The 2020 presidential election is one of the most important elections the United States has seen in decades. The coronavirus pandemic and boiling tensions between political parties are motivating voters more than ever to make sure their voices are heard. The circumstances of the pandemic have made voting by mail a safer option for many Americans and it accommodates those who are too high risk to vote in person. However, the President claims voting by mail is going to lead to election fraud.

Presidential debate adds to the list of disasters of 2020

Picture two children arguing in front of a teacher on why one should be able to play with a ball over the other. That is what the 2020 presidential debate was like between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump completely derailed the debate turning it into guerilla warfare through an unyielding disregard for the rules set forth to ensure a civil discussion.

Of course Trump said terrible things about vets again

Over this past Labor Day weekend, Boston based magazine The Atlantic published an article claiming President Donald Trump called soldiers that died in World War I “losers” and “suckers.” The president disputes ever saying these comments. However, his past attacks on veterans and their families prove the president is unreliable to telling the truth.  

IOC needs new leadership

Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe agreed to postpone the Olympics until the summer of 2021, so they should be given some credit for their ultimate decision. However, the way Bach and Abe went about it was disturbing, to say the least. 

A UBI plan is as welcome as IBS, no thank you.

Universal basic income [UBI] is a temporary bandage for a hemorrhaging economy clinging to life support with no relief in sight. Policy makers both nationally and in CA are considering the UBI put forth by former presidential candidate Andrew Yang. This measure would attempt to counter the growing number of unemployed residents who have lost jobs that are considered non-essential due to the Covid-19 outbreak.  Policy makers have a habit of ban-waggoning as seen with CA now introducing a bill that would provide an income …
