Reviews for political die-hards of books about politicians, civil rights, Supreme Court rulings and the ever-changing Swamp.
Two Birds, One Stone
Before I begin this article, I must emphasize a few things. One, this is not a defense, nor condemnation of the actions these sailors have taken. Two, I in no way have any knowledge of their cases beyond what is publicly available. Three, this article is not intended to be your sole source of information on this case. It is but a start for more critical thinking about these cases, and others like it.
President Wants to Downsize Military, Legalize Drugs and Prostitution
February 27th (Portland, OR) – During a rare first-year State of the Union address, the President of the United States proposed a number of new, expanded, and reallocated programs. This included creating considerable controls over medical billing; investing in research that may lead to lowering the death rate related to heart disease; building massive desalination plants and filling the deserts with water; deploying more renewable and nuclear energy capabilities (along with carbon sequestration); constructing an elevator to space; and starting a two-year required national service for 18-year-olds.

Climate Change is a Security Issue, President Insists
February 27th (Newport News, VA) – The President wants the country to focus in on five very specific scientific endeavors; ones that the administration says will tackle “the current real security problems and human toll due to climate change”, but will also set the United States up for a long-term future. By attempting to frame these issues both as “security” and “climate change”, the President seems to be hoping to woo enough Republicans and Democrats into supporting a common cause, even if it is for entirely different reasons.
How to stop the cold war between America and China?
Introduction The recent visit of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to China has been viewed as a significant effort to stabilize the increasingly strained relations between the two world powers. While the visit was generally pleasant, tensions resurfaced when US President Joe Biden referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as a "dictator" at a fundraising event. This statement drew a strong reaction from China, further complicating the relationship between the two countries. The reception of Indian President Narendra Modi by the Biden administration and their joint statements also hint at the US's intent to include India as a strong player in an anti-China coalition. With the future of this critical global relationship hanging in the balance, several books have been published to shed light on the US-China conflict and its potential outcomes.
Is America on the Cusp of a Healthcare Revolution?
February 27th (Atlanta, GA) – Last night (February 26th), the President of the United States stood before a joint-session of Congress to deliver a rare first-year State of the Union Address. While those in attendance and the millions watching at home never learned if the condition of the country was “strong” or some other similar terminology, the President took the opportunity to lambast the Legislative and Judicial Branches for past perceived grievances. Yet after spending a good portion of the opening statement attacking these coequal parts of government, the President did take a significant amount of time to explain that there is usually more agreement than not, despite the rhetoric and the “media hype” of partisanship.

President Attacks Rather than Addresses Congress in First State of the Union
February 26th (Washington, D.C.) – A few short weeks after making a request to do so, the President was able to appear before a joint-session of Congress to give a State of the Union address. However, this was a speech unlike any given since becoming formally known by that name in 1947—which coincidently was the first time the speech was broadcast on television. The last President to have a State of the Union during their first year in office was John F. Kennedy—although his successor Lyndon B. Johnson had one after Kennedy was assassinated and Gerald Ford also had one when Richard Nixon resigned. However, according to a Congressional Research Service report (https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R44770.pdf) on the history of the State of the Union:
