Radical Islamic Terrorism: What is the Solution?

As Ramadan comes to a close, it’s important to remember how lucky we are to live in a country that allows us celebrate our own religions, or lack thereof because it is not that easy for the rest of the world. Over the last few months, terrorist attacks have been more publicized and prevalent. We have seen devastating attacks take place in several western civilizations including Manchester, Paris, Stockholm, and even Ohio State University. If you watch or follow any form of news, you have to ask yourself: “Why are these attacks getting worse and why are they hitting closer to home?” The President said...

The War of the Flags

If you are tired of hearing the names James Comey, Kathy Griffin, and Michael Flynn everywhere you turn, this article is probably for you. Since these recent dramatic events in Washington have been plastered all over social media, some other pertinent, recurring issues have risen to the surface once again and these issues aren’t even partisan. Confederate flags and confederate memorial monuments have created disputes among local officials, governmental entities, and the general public for years now.

Kathy Griffin: Seriously?

On Tuesday, May 30th, comedian (if you find her humorous) Kathy Griffin posted a photo taken by highly controversial photographer Tyler Shields.

After severe backlash from both the left and the right alike, Griffin gave a rushed, vague apology on social media that was directed to the public and not to the President and his family. The photo has received backlash from 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney,...

The “Trump” Nobody Is Talking About, Part 2

Amidst the videos of Trump allegedly “pushing” NATO members aside and blameworthy Occupy Democrat posts, the media networks and social media platforms neglect any news that point to President Trump’s success. He is faulty, as all people can be, but the left’s constant criticism of the president is both unproductive and trivial. With this article, and in my earlier piece, “The ‘Trump’ Nobody is Talking About”, I expose some of the more prolific and positive changes the president has achieved for our country. The president’s more recent success occurred earlier this month via executive order. The “Religious Liberty” executive...

Should English Be Our Official Language?

We hear constantly throughout life that “communication is key”. Those who believe that statement would be right. Business, politics, education, and basic societal practices in general require clear and concise communication. This communication, however, can be completely inhibited by language barriers, making any conversation difficult. It is well-known that the United States actually has no official national language. This is a strange and often overlooked predicament, considering that the United States has a whopping 232 million native-English speakers and millions of bi-lingual speakers. Diversity and culture is celebrated by our country and we would not be who we are today without our...
