Losing on Foreign Policy

Libya. Ukraine. Russia. The Syrian Red Line. Iran. Benghazi. ISIS. The Clinton “footprint” around the globe is not a clean one. The results are not stellar. 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

Hey Republicans, It’s Time For A New Strategy On America’s Racial Tension

Social scientists understand racism as a multidimensional and highly adaptive system—a system that ensures an unequal distribution of resources between racial groups. Because whites built and dominate all significant institutions, (often at the expense of and on the uncompensated labor of other groups), their interests are embedded in the foundation of U.S. society. If you just read the above quote, you’re probably angry or at … Continue reading Hey Republicans, It’s Time For A New Strategy On America’s Racial Tension

A Trump Presidency Isn’t Worth It For Conservatives

As of right now, Donald Trump is the Republican presidential nominee. It still boggles my mind how Trump got the needed support to get the nomination. Voters had the chance to see the way Trump acts, yet still after the hatred and bigotry; still voted for him. After the Trump nomination was pretty much sealed up, his comments and actions only got worse. Donald Trump told CNN that … Continue reading A Trump Presidency Isn’t Worth It For Conservatives

Democratic Congressmen Show Their True Colors

Today, America finally saw the true nature of the Democratic Party. Earlier today, House Democrats announced they will hold a sit in and not leave the House Chambers until their demands are met. Their demands are contained in a one-page bill with 5 provisions. These provisions aim to further restrict the rights of American citizens but does absolutely nothing to curb the Left proclaimed “gun … Continue reading Democratic Congressmen Show Their True Colors

Donald Trump’s 1984

Before Big Brother was synonymous with big, intrusive government, it was the name of the shadowy antagonist in George Orwell’s novel “1984.” The character, the leader of Oceania, is the origin for the term now in the political lexicon. “Nineteen Eighty Four” should probably be required reading in schools, though there is some sense of irony of the prophetic tale of government overreach finding its … Continue reading Donald Trump’s 1984

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. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m pretty sure that when you were a kid, if you did … Continue reading Democrats in Maryland Override Gov. Hogan’s Veto, Felons Now Allowed to Vote

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
