The First 100 Days of the War on Media

  Last Saturday, the world acknowledged that it was Donald Trump’s first 100 days as President. While Fox media reports his first 100 Days in a celebratory manner, applause should be reserved for the fact that Trump has managed to avert major geopolitical crises. President Trump chose to celebrate this benchmark of ‘success’ surrounded  by a crowd of sycophantic supporters at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania. While Trump revealed that he thought the presidency would be “easier”, he chooses to go back to the people that elected him by throwing…

Devin Nunes and Republican Partiality

Devin Nunes (R-CA) is at the epicenter of the political arena as he continues to act as a puppet for the Trump administration.

Betsy DeVos And the Future of Education
