Why Women Are Afraid of Judge Brett Kavanaugh

It’s September 2018 and there are men screaming at feminists on Twitter about how women have equal rights, and that we are just whiny babies. I have run out of energy to defend my views because I feel like a broken record every time I say that women often face adversity, harassment, and unequal treatment compared to their male counterparts. Right now, I can have my feminist views, and the men screaming on Twitter can

We’re Becoming Desensitized to Gun Violence

It seems that everywhere you look, there’s gun violence. At some point, it has become a regular event to see it on the news. The only word to describe the feeling when details of the latest shooting flashes across my screen is suffocation. Whether it’s at a school, concert, or mall, you can’t escape the looming threat of gun violence. It’s practically everywhere. When news of a shooting at a video game tournament in Florida flashed

Florida’s Governor Election Showcases America’s Perpetual Race Problem

In recent news, Florida’s race for a new governor sparked a frenzy when Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum shockingly won the party’s primary. The 39-year-old Tallahassee mayor, endorsed by Bernie Sanders, is the first African American Democratic candidate for governor in the state of Florida’s history. Surprising no one, his opponents have seemed to latch on to that simple fact, turning the election into an ugly, race-baiting battle. It all began when Republican nominee Ron DeSantis

The Language of World News: The Changing Face of Trump-era Journalism

In the era of “fake news,” it seems the entire journalism industry has come under fire. Regardless of which side a source supports, it is apparent that world news dialect has been completely altered since the politics of yesteryear — or  pre-2016, for that matter. After gracing the pages of ancient Greek literature, this powerful rhetorical device has become a large facet of political vocabulary, though many lack an understanding of its foundation. It is

A Hope For Pakistan: Prime Minister Khan Addresses Nation

On the 17th of August 2018, Imran Khan was sworn in as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Last night, Imran Khan addressed the nation as the Prime Minister of Pakistan for the first time, passing an hour-long across-the-board, televisual speech. To the rear of a recitation from the Holy Quran and the playing of the national anthem, the Prime Minister inaugurated his address by thanking his supporters who stood beside him throughout his 22 years

Why Abolishing ICE Is a Legitimate Option

When you go onto the official website to view the history for U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement, a short paragraph describes its creation in 2003, its separate offices and its annual amount given. It also provides opportunities to read news stories based on ICE agents’ recent arrests and various ways to contact the agency. Public safety should be taken seriously, and America is very much afraid of another 9/11, yet that fear has become unreasonable

How My Excitement Towards Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Turned Into Disillusionment

When I first saw the video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez realizing she had won, I was instantly captivated. A millennial Latina had beat a ten-term incumbent in her first, entirely people-funded campaign, and was now shaping up to become the youngest woman elected to Congress I, like most, had never heard of her before that night. But as a 17-year-old POC girl, everything I could glean about her was absolutely inspiring. Here was someone that represented

City Council Votes to Remove Trump’s Star from Walk of Fame

The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on Monday to move forward with the process of removing Donald Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. According to the Los Angeles Times, the move is “largely symbolic,” as approval of the proposed resolution, which cites President Trump’s “disturbing treatment of woman” and “other actions,” essentially serves as a strong recommendation. The only body with actual jurisdiction over the decision is the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

The Paul Manafort Trial: How Mueller Is Closer To Trump Than Ever

Last week marked the beginning of the trial against Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates. Don’t know who Paul Manafort is?
