The results haven’t fully sunk … Continue reading Yes, It Really Happened: Trump Triumphs & Clinton Concedes

We witness attacks in France, San Bernardino, and Orlando. We seek strong leadership, and a vision for the world that is anchored by American leadership. Foreign policy should not be a winning issue for Hillary Clinton; yet, it is. … Continue reading Losing on Foreign Policy

Don’t Compromise Your Morals to Save a Dying GOP

Well, four years and a few tears later that’s my current reality. I first got involved in politics during the 2008 presidential election between now President Obama and Senator John McCain. Although I was only … Continue reading Don’t Compromise Your Morals to Save a Dying GOP

Democrats in Maryland Override Gov. Hogan’s Veto, Felons Now Allowed to Vote

On Tuesday, the Maryland Senate overrode Gov. Hogan’s veto, allowing felons to vote. The previous law allowed felons to vote only after completing both their sentence and probation. However, the new law, Senate Bill 340, grants voting rights to felons immediately after being released from prison.

Feminists Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright Shame Democratic Women for Feeling the Bern

Over the past several days, prominent feminists Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright have dropped some pretty damning remarks regarding the female vote in the 2016 presidential election. During a campaign event in New Hampshire, Albright was stumping for Hillary Clinton when she told the audience, “Just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” Not long after Albright’s remarks started making … Continue reading Feminists Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright Shame Democratic Women for Feeling the Bern

Misled by polls, 2015 was a bad year for political discourse

Fast forward. It’s the fall of 2016. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are standing on a debate stage, after pretending to respect each other with an awkward handshake. Trump is just weeks away from potentially making America great again with vague, bombastic bromides and policy decisions he doesn’t quite understand. Clinton, too, could soon be moving back to the White House, accompanied by her home-brew … Continue reading Misled by polls, 2015 was a bad year for political discourse
