Since the day that former President Donald Trump descended on that escalator in 2015, the fringe right have seen it as an opportunity to advance their own self interests. I do not believe any of the far right congressmen and women believe the conspiracy theories that they espouse to their rather gullible constituents.

Representative Greene is a prime example of this new threat to our country, civics and stability of our democracy. The congresswoman have peddled in conspiracy theories that one might believe came straight out of a sci-fi novel or movie. She has insinuated that the California wildfires were…


The brutal trifecta of 2020.

2020 started as innocuous as any other year. I was on the upward trend in almost all aspects of my life. I was living my best life, and then March happened. When the lockdown started in mid-March, I was actually enthusiastic about it. Hell, I have been a shut in almost my entire life. I felt like this will be a walk in the park. I thought to myself that I was going to get more writing done, but I did not. Instead, I obsessed with the barrage of news from terrorist attacks in Afghanistan…


It is not a big secret that Democrats have been uneasy about the Biden nomination since the day he announced his third run for presidency earlier last year. While he was anointed as the Democratic front runner before he even decided to run for presidency, the way he has run his campaign left many on left with a lot of anxiety. At one point he was even dismissed as the viable contender due to his losses in the early states of the primaries.

But as he cemented his candidacy after wining many of the Super Tuesday states and his commanding…


ZipRecruiters and others like them make it impossible to find a job

With the risk of sounding like “that guy” but over the last few years, AI has ruined recruitment process and makes it nearly impossible for the everyday qualified person to find a job. This undoubtedly varies from industry to industry. The road to become a physician, lawyer, dentist, teacher, nursing, or any other professional service is clear. It simply requires complete undergraduate school, attend a professional school — Medical School, Law School, Dental Schools, etc. — complete an internship/residency and you seamlessly transition into a career. That is…


Zuckerberg is full of it!

Recently Mark Zuckerberg, CEO and founder of Facebook, have been making the rounds around DC touting the same and tried talking points of defending free speech. At his congressional hearing last week, Zuckerberg maintained that policing political ads would be tantamount to censoring free speech. The problem that this is all, as Biden would say, “malarkey.” Zuckerberg could care less about free speech and his platform has been weaponized by extremist groups across the spectrum. …

It would be farfetched to say that the Syrian civil war was worth it, it was not. There are multiple actors involved, each vying for an outcome that will only benefit themselves. They include the multitude of militias fighting in Syria, Iran, Russia, the Gulf States, Israel…

The United States House of Representatives have impeached a total of 19 people since the inception of the constitution. Most people are not aware that the most recent impeachment happened in 2010 when the house impeached Judge G. Thomas Porteous, Jr. of the eastern district of Louisiana. He was impeached for accepting bribery among a litany of crimes committed. Impeachments happen and they are not always front page headlines. The founders purposely made impeachment difficult but also gave the House of Representatives the authority to begin proceedings when conduct of a public official is unbecoming of the office they hold…


Dear Senator Lindsey Graham,

I have followed your politics for as long as I can remember, and it saddens me that the final stretch of your public service and your legacy will be one of total submission to the wills of President Trump. You were the late Senator John McCain’s ally and best friend, and if he were alive today, I could not imagine his disappointment with your behavior as of lately.

Have you completely checked out? Does Trump have something incriminating against you? How did you go from calling him a con man to defending him regardless of how…


Why some on the left are so scared of millenials

It is hard to consume an idea that is different from your own and I believe we have gotten to a point, in which people only read and watch things that agree with them. Hearing an opposing point of view can conjure a bad reaction, but I believe it is absolutely necessary to listen to opposing points of view. It is for this reason that I continue to watch programs like HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher and read from “journalists” like #BariWeiss. …


Preventing War but at what cost?

When it comes to US President Donald Trump, there is little that I agree with him on. As a Muslim-American, I understand his total disdain for political Islam and his demonization of the first Muslim women elected to the US House of Representatives was abhorred. But, like with most everything, there is always a silver lining to be found in any situation. I want to preface my forthcoming argument with this; I sincerely do not believe that Trump does anything that does not better him in some form or another. …
