Numerous protests and marches have formed across the country, from the Women’s March to the “Not My President” protests. Although this reaction is intense and horrific, it is not […]

On Tuesday, April 4, the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad carried out a chemical attack that killed 80 people in the Idlib Province of Syria. After about 72 hours of deliberation and examination of options moving forward, President Donald Trump ordered a strike on the Assad regime’s Al Shayrat airfield, the site of the warplanes […]

Op-Ed: A Shared Objective

On March 19, Peter Maass wrote in The Intercept that “for Donald Trump, a terror attack will be an opportunity not a curse.” Maass is right on the most basic level, and it’s quite extraordinary that the point is not being made by more voices in the media. It speaks to the fact that–even though […]

Op-Ed: Double-Standard Patriots-ism

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the Super Bowl LI champions, the New England Patriots. A lot of people seem to have an issue with the fact that several African-American players do not want to go to the White House because they don’t feel welcomed.

Alternate Take: Bullying… An American Tradition

Isn’t America just the best? I think so. It’s the greatest county on the planet. Hell, it’s the only country on the planet if you ask me. I honestly can’t even name another country that exists, much less a relevant one. I guess when you’re up this high, everybody on the ground just looks like […]

Op-Ed: One Thing Leads to Another

I am not here to gloat, nor do I have time to say “I told ya so”. Nothing positive can be gained by suggesting the tables have turned after eight years of being in your shoes. I only wish to highlight a simple inquiry for my liberal friends to ponder over: how embarrassing must it […]

Op-Ed: A Conservative’s Report from D.C.

I voted for Donald Trump. I know, I know — I’m the worst — but you can hate me later. I recently visited Washington D.C. to witness the historic inauguration of President Donald Trump.

Op-Ed: Resisting the Right

I spent the weekend in Washington, D.C. with hundreds of thousands of friends, family and comrades. We weren’t there to celebrate the inauguration of the 45 President of the United States; instead, we were there to kick off four years of righteous defiance and resistance. Friday saw angry and militant protests in D.C., where protesters […]

The State of the Election

A news story several weeks back that caught my eye was one about Minnesota Democrats attempting to kick Donald Trump off the ballot. Because in a shocking turn of events, they seem to be supporting Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.  And being members of the political party that believes so strongly in giving a voice to […]
