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.

Take A Look At The Insane Direction This Congressional Hearing Took

FBI Agent Peter Strzok visited Congress to provide a ten-hour testimony to the House Judiciary and Oversight committees regarding his removal from one of the leading positions in the Trump/Russia FBI investigation, after strings of text messages with former FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, were discovered with anti-Trump sentiments.
