The Atlantic Responds to Right-Wing Populism on Campus

by Kevin Fenchak In Elaine Godfrey’s piece on the civil war taking place in College Republicans chapters across the country, the left-leaning Atlantic spends surprisingly little time disparaging Trump’s populist base, astounding for a magazine known as a magnet for GOP establishment whiners and former NYT writers. Among the representatives of this movement at Penn State, the piece has been surprisingly well-received. In fact, Godfrey gets certain things right that most coverage of the divide within the Republican party misses,…

A Year Under Trump: Victories and Losses

by Andrew Johnson and John Ford It has been one year since Trump’s inauguration, and Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) has flourished beautifully among the left — in an era where the percentage of negative media coverage for the President wavers around 90%, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find any coherent pieces not dripping with “progressive” dreck or unhinged hatred. While the mainstream media is busy retracting fake news stories, and the liberals are busy calling for impeachment or…

Trump Announces the Winners of the Fake News Awards

By Jack T. Oscar season is boring. The movies can be quite good, but the awards show is the worst. It’s just a party for elitist, sex-harassing celebrities. The only award show that I want to see is President Trump’s first annual Fake News Awards. And after watching it, believe me, it was the best award show ever. In a nice tongue-in-cheek list, President Trump tallied the ten fakest new stories of 2017. I won’t go through all ten…

“Win Bigly” Will Make You a Three-Dimensional Chess Master

by Jack T. Two years ago, cartoonist Scott Adams shook the brains of ordinary Americans, pundits, and “experts” when he called Trump a “master persuader” who would win in a landslide, while everyone else called him a “clown.” People said a cartoonist knew nothing about politics. Well, it turns out he knew a lot more than the “experts.” You’re probably wondering, how can a cartoonist predict the greatest upset in political history and leave the “experts” scratching their heads?…

US Continues to Withhold Military Funding from Pakistan, Protests Erupt

by Sarah Nahrgang A $1.1 billion aid package for Pakistan was authorized in 2016 by Congress, but in response to the country’s poor approaches to handling terrorism, the Trump administration announced in August of 2017 that it would be temporarily withholding $255 million. If Pakistan agreed to be more aggressive in cracking down on terrorist networks in Afghanistan, they would continue to receive US funding. Despite this, the Pakistani government has taken no such initiative, and the White House…

Analyzing the Iran Deal and Trump’s Options

by Andrew Johnson As is usual, media coverage of the so-called “Iran Deal” has been horribly lopsided, dumbed-down, and mostly devoid of useful information. To understand Trump’s choices, we must first understand what the Iran Deal entails. The official name of the deal is the “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action”. This was an agreement reached by then President Obama, Iran, and several other world powers in 2015. The stated goal of this deal was to reduce the capability Iran…

Purging The Party

by Will Sanders During the Presidential campaign, the news was filled with prominent GOP backers and strategists such as George Will leaving the Republican Party. The media heralded this exodus as indicative of the collapse of the Republican Party brought on by Trump. Surprisingly, the media was correct – but too soon in their prediction. This slow-motion death is still ongoing and is increasing in speed as the Party suffers from more dysfunction and infighting due to its inability…

Harvey Brings the Worst to America, America Brings the Best to Harvey

By Jack T. With the disaster in Texas flooding block after block of residential neighborhoods, many Americans have put aside their daily toils and comforts for the relatively thankless task of rescuing stranded men, women, and children from the cold and brackish waters. What’s most amazing about the recovery effort is not only the beautiful display of American patriotism and love, but also the massive juxtaposition to the tragedy in Charlottesville. In Charlottesville we saw right wing identitarians brawl…
