Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

The truth is that the real problem lies in our hearts, and the corrupt politicians that currently represent us are simply a reflection of who we have become as a nation. The generations of people that founded this nation and established it as the greatest republic that the world had ever seen had far different values than most Americans do today. So until there is a dramatic shift in how most of us see the world, it is quite likely that not much in Washington will change.

Does the Science of Lying Explain Trump’s Support?

“Trump tells more untruths than any previous president,” says George Edwards, a Texas A&M political scientist who edits the Presidential Studies Quarterly. “There is no one that is a close second.” But Trump’s political path presents a paradox. Far from slowing his momentum, his deceit seemed only to strengthen his support through the primary and national election. How can he tell so many lies and still win support from millions of Americans?

Judge Blocks Ban: “Human Decency” Over Trump’s “Disgraceful” Discrimination

The ruling came from U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson, who explained that the travel ban proposed by Trump violates constitutional protections because “a reasonable, objective observer—enlightened by the specific historical context, contemporaneous public statements, and specific sequences of events leading to its issuance—would conclude that the Executive Order was issued with a purpose to disfavor a particular religion”—specifically Islam.

Is Trump “Making America Great” at Americans’ Expense?

Trump, the self-touted “voice of the people,” has placed in the highest government positions the “voices” of Wall Street billionaires. Next door to his Oval Office is Gary Cohn, former Goldman Sachs boss. In addition, Wall Street and the mega-wealthy now run the Treasury Department, the State Department, and the Department of Education while corporatists and militarists run other major departments and agencies. Where are the people’s voices in that plutocratic park?

How A Real War On Terrorism Would Look And Why The US Isn’t Fighting One

Since 2001, when then US President George Bush announced his “War on Terror,” presidents and politicians both in the United States and among America’s allies, have repeated this phrase and have done their utmost to convince the public that indeed, the West was fighting a “War on Terror.” Yet there is something disturbingly ambiguous about what exactly the “War on Terror” consists of, who it’s being waged against and how it could ever possibly be brought to a successful conclusion.
