• The Ballad of Jeff Sessions
    No Comment

    It’s quite ironic that one of the first members of Congress to endorse Trump—former Attorney General Jeff Sessions—became one of his bitter foes. And it’s even more surprising that Democrats became some of the most outspoken defenders of the chief architect of family separation policy. Donald Trump’s demagoguery has surely created some strange bedfellows. From […]

  • The “Selfish” Gene
    No Comment

    Survival has been the exclusive factor which caused species’ development and evolution. Starting from billions of years ago, when life emerged for the first time, species have been evolving themselves to be “selfish” in order to compete against others for resources, space and ultimately, survival. One of the biggest contributors to this process is definitely […]

  • Why Are Republicans So Hellbent on Preserving Kavanaugh?
    No Comment

    Brett Kavanaugh is not fit for the Supreme Court. The mounting evidence that he likely did sexually assault three women on three different occasions should have been enough to disqualify him. But the 45-minute long, Trumpian tantrum he threw during his testimony on Thursday adds another important layer to Kavanaugh: he is an unabashed partisan […]

  • A Court Tainted, A Nation Divided
    No Comment

    Regardless of the outcome of the Kavanaugh nomination process, something much graver, with much worse consequences, will have emerged as a reality. The Supreme Court, one of the most undemocratic features of our republican form of government, holds a cherished spot in the American sentiment as a neutral arbiter of Constitutional norms, a check on […]

  • Keep Kavanaugh off of the Bench
    No Comment

    If you asked me one week ago if I believed that the Kavanaugh accusations were relevant, I would have responded with a firm no. It has been more than a year and a half since Trump first assumed office, and I, along with a sizable plurality of the country, have spent much of that time […]

  • Are We in a Post-Truth Era?
    No Comment

    Quickly Google “post truth era” and you will find a multitude of articles about white lies in our daily life, recent politics, or moral relativism, but that’s not what I am going to talk about. What I want to discuss here is the possibility that we have entered into an era where humans are no […]

    In the span of a few months, I transformed from an apathetic eighth grader into an impassioned leftist willing to spar with anyone. And in freshman year, as the 2016 election heated up, so did my fervor for politics and my willingness to debate. As I learned more about politics, read more political journalism, and […]
