On February 5, 2019, President Donald J. Trump gave his second State of the Union speech. His speech was delivered not long after he and Congress came to a deal to end the government shutdown, which caused the event to be postponed from its earlier date. The President also stood in front of a divided Congress that looked much...
Russia If you look at a map of Europe you will probably see a monstrous country that looks like it would cast a shadow on every city West of it. This is Russia.  Russia is the largest country in the world and one of the most influential in history, and for the longest time, this nation controlled what is now...
Three months after his initial nomination by President Trump, we seem to have reached the climax of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. Both sides of the political aisle are dissecting every sentence that comes out of Kavanaugh's mouth. The media is intensely examining the misconduct allegations waged against him.

But he is, and very soon, he could be one of Texas’s senators in Washington, D.C. But who is he really? Well, his campaign website describes him first as a...
The 2018 midterms appear to be one of the most hotly contested in modern American history. With controversial (to say the least) President Trump firmly in the reigns of the Republican Party, the Democratic base appears poised to strike a major blow against him. Trump has alienated much of his own party, causing vaunted figures such as  Jeff Flake,...
Earlier this summer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez achieved a stunning victory in New York’s 14th congressional district over Rep. Joe Crowley, one of the most influential Democratic leaders in Congress. Based on a grassroots-led campaign, her success attracted attention nationwide, as she soon began making appearances on cable news to answer hundreds of questions about her platform. While much of the discussion...
