Deception and Desperate Measures
Today, there are very few people who truly understand the gravity of how serious the global economy really is. The dangers lurking behind cloaks of deception by the media and the power elite remain hidden from the general public. Millions the world over remain transfixed in hopeless desperation. Those that have said desperate times mean desperate measures are due maybe right after all. But, as so often in the past those desperate measures have only exasperated desperate times. As we continue to see, it has always been those behind the media that have always orchestrated a diversion and even a distortion away from certain elements, facts, and news. This diversion by the media is purposely directed to turn national attention away from other news. News that has far greater implications for the general public than what is actually being given the most attention by the press has made it almost impossible now to prevent further financial and economic decay not only here in the United states but around the globe.

I recently came across an article where a Colgate University student was under suspicion of having a firearm when in reality he had a glue gun. Yes ladies and gents, a glue gun.

The Biggest Laughing Stock in New Mexico
In late March, Santa Fe University of Art and Design sent an email to its thriving community announcing that the for profit institution is to shut down after 2018. Students went insane and instructors tried to remain calm but broke down in silence. Ever since the dreadful email was sent out, the school has offered very little assistance to the students unfortunate enough to be attending this university and is handling the overall situation very poorly. In this article, I am going to be jumping around to try to explain a very, very, very, very, complicated situation.
Life Inside America's Most Toxic Zip Code: A Warning of What Happens When Democracy Fails
48217. This innocuous number is a zip code of a town section so derelict, so toxic, and so blighted that locals no longer call it by its own name. It's just a zip code that is part of the Southwestern corner of Detroit - a city already known for its rough living, corrupt cops, and street violence.
Unethical Things Politicians are Doing to Keep Their Voters Supporting Them
A wise man once said that politicians need to be replaced as often as diapers - and the average voter might agree to that statement. However, it's hard to explain why congressmen still get voted in despite the approval rating of congress as a whole being at an all time low.
Rewriting the Right
Less than four months into the unalloyed conservative triumph of Donald Trump assuming the presidency of the United States — an objective deeply desired and widely praised by think-tank and media conservatives — the symbol of American right-wing media and a leading conservative policy organization are going through major changes of their leadership and their missions. Just not the way they planned, or expected.
What Makes States Turn Red?
If you were to ask most Americans, they'd tell you that they would have thought that Hillary Clinton was poised to win the election. The actual polls, though, showed a different outcome - despite her winning the popular election. One may wonder what makes blue states turn Republican, especially after the debacle that was the most recent election.
#FireColbert is now making the rounds on Twitter, thanks in no small part to Stephen Colbert's outrage-fuelled outburst during his Late Show monologue Tuesday, May 2. In it, Colbert kicked off by bringing up President Donald Trump's interview with John Dickerson of Face The Nation, which the president quickly aborted when Dickerson effectively tripped Trump up with his claims that the president doesn't "stand by anything." During the interview, Trump referred to Face The Nation as Deface The Nation and accused Dickerson of promoting "fake news."
