How A White Nationalist March On Washington Is Closer To Becoming A Reality

What does the word “Nazi” remind you of? World War 2? White Supremacy? Possibly, the greatest genocide in history? Well, now you can add disgruntled to your list. A group of White supremacists in Charlottesville just got the approval for a “White Civil Rights Rally” for August 11th – the anniversary of their “Unite the Right Rally” last year. Apparently, the group of White Nationalists believes that White people do not have enough rights in America and

Here’s Why Trump’s Executive Order Isn’t All That Helpful

As of now, there have already been about 2,000 immigrant children being separated from their parents at the US border, due to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s ‘zero-tolerance’ policy that “prohibits both attempted illegal entry and illegal entry into the United States by an alien.” “We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together.” Just this Wednesday afternoon, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to end the separation

Ireland’s Progressive Movement Towards Liberalism

Across dozens of religious and cultural values, the practice of abortion remains a highly contentious issue. Some beliefs, such as that of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, Hinduism, Judaism, and Islam believe in the protection of the mother and permit abortion during extenuating circumstances. Others, like Catholicism, forbid it completely, regardless of the situation. These beliefs, as well as other factors, have immense influence over the policies that countries institute regarding abortion. For example, China possesses freely available

Maloclm Jenkins’s Method of Activism In The Age of Trump

Ever since Colin Kaepernick decided to protest the ongoing police brutality in the USA by kneeling during the national anthem of “a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” his words, along with other protesters’, have been missed and led the public and people in power to falsely accuse them for being unpatriotic, “disrespecting the flag,” and even have crude words thrown at them by the President, Donald Trump. The NFL has not

An In-Depth Look at the 14th Amendment, Students, and the American Dream

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” -Thomas Jefferson America was founded upon an unprecedented notion of equality. Regrettably, the initial legal definition of such a progressively-rooted value proved, in time, to be discriminatory in both terminology and practice. Perhaps principal authors, like Thomas Jefferson, of the

Highlighting The President’s Wins: Hesitant Appreciation From A Democrat

You’re going to see the words I would have never pictured myself writing: I am impressed with Donald Trump. Don’t get me wrong; there are many issues in our country, and personally, I believe that President Trump lacks the eloquence or the mindset to be the leader of the free world. However, I think the only way to progress as a nation is to give credit where credit is due — and Donald Trump deserves

Washington D.C. Is “Hollywood For Ugly People”: Entertainers Vs. Politicians

Americans are no longer identifying with policies and platforms of political candidates, but rather with a “public persona” that people can relate to. Although many politically aware and educated people vote for a candidate they deem well fit, there are many people who vote based on their “connection” to the politician. Donald Trump, a reality television star and businessman becoming president demonstrated that you don’t have to be a politician to be elected to higher

Trump’s Comments On Paris Attacks Once Again Show His Apathy

On November 13, 2015 in Paris, 1,500 people were watching Eagles of Death Metal perform in a beautiful theatre while 80,000 were attending a friendly match between France and Germany in the biggest stadium of France and a couple others having a drink with friends.

Money Going Towards The Royal Wedding Would Be Better Spent Helping The Homeless

The engagement between The Prince of Wales and Meghan Markle was announced in late November last year. However, with the wedding coming up on May 19 in Windsor, is all that money really going to good use or could it be going elsewhere, perhaps to the 300,000 homeless people in Britain? Bridebook has revealed that the royal wedding is estimated to cost £31,969,873, with £30,000,000 alone for security. Compared to William and Kate’s security costs

Why The 2020 Election Should Be Your Focus Now

The 2016 election was revolutionary. After eight years of democratic president, Barack Obama, in the White House, America asked for a change and it got one. Similar to an overcorrection, the people of America voted for the candidate that differed the most from the former administration: Donald Trump. Regardless of my political beliefs, I definitely have to credit president Trump for getting me more involved in politics than I have ever been before. Which is
