corruption

A prime locale to talk bribery, suspect campaign funding, and all other instances of political corruption. The shadier, the better.

    America's Colonialist Relationship with Puerto Rico

    America's Colonialist Relationship with Puerto Rico

    Politicians are in league with corporations hellbent on destroying an entire American territory. High unemployment, high poverty, austerity measures, natural disaster, and an unwieldy amount of debt: it sounds like something an evil cabal would admit to in an 80s action movie right before the team of Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone blow the whole place up. But year after year, such justice doesn't come. And, unfortunately, too few Americans care because that territory is Puerto Rico.

    Fake Art, Fake Government, Fake Democracy

    An art gallery in France has just discovered most of its exhibits are fakes. They found out after experts looked at the pictures. Had it been the UK, a third rate Tory would have been wheeled out to say we are tired of experts and they would have carried on as normal. As it was that benighted (because it is not England), miserable (because it is not England), ignorant (because it is not England) country they withdrew the exhibits and are being threatened with a fraud charge.

    Understanding Men's Rights Activists and Their Lingo

    Men's Rights Activists (MRA) think that they're taking arms against a world that's changing for the worse but, in reality, they're dragging their feet in the face of much-needed progressive evolution. Rather than representing a marginalized group on the edge of oppression, MRAs are actually the ones doing the oppressing and benefiting from a system rigged in their favor.

    Songs About Police Brutality

    Songs About Police Brutality

    Sometimes a song is the fastest and the most emotionally evocative way to communicate a lesson. You can read a book, watch a movie, and even subject yourself to raw cam footage of grizzly police violence, but what music is able to communicate is simultaneously both feeling and narrative. In doing so, the issue is both illuminated and complicated. That's why songs about police brutality are indispensable; they both shape the conversation and are the conversation in and of themselves. Crank up these jams, get woke, and shut it down! No justice; no peace; no racist police!

    Madmen

    In no other time in our history has there been such corruption and insanity coming from Washington and especially the White House. Trump and his henchmen have all but obliterated the Constitution. Now, with the world turning its eyes toward Syria after another so-called chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people our fearless leader has taken it upon himself to interfere with military action that has global repercussions. Unlike President Obama, Trump and his henchmen have made matters much worse than ever before. His reaction has been completely idiotic, something only a madman would only do.

    What Democracy?

    What Democracy?

    The turmoil in Syria has been evident since the initial uprising in 2011, with the detrimental effects of the Civil War on innocent civilians appearing on an international scale. In September of 2015, the haunting image of a 3-year-old boy's body made global headlines after it was found washed up on a shore in Turkey. With this image, there were evident calls for change and a need to bring "humanity" back to human life. Outrage. Upset. Anger. Internationally, people were gripped by the harsh realities of escaping a Civil War but this upset was also met with contempt, exhibiting the most selfish qualities of human nature as countries with the ability to substantiate change—failing to do so, in supposed "fear" of their own safety.

    That Sinking Feeling

    That Sinking Feeling

    As the winter Olympics take center stage without too much fanfare, the Trump Administration is poised to unleash a budget filled with draconian cuts in just about every safety net there is. These safety nets have had significant success in keeping millions of Americans from falling through the cracks of an already unbalanced society. Yet we have Trump and the rest of the Republicans incapable of hearing the cries of the impoverished multitudes that continue to languish in desperation, hoping for better times ahead.

    FISA Memo Reveals Corrupt Officials

    FISA Memo Reveals Corrupt Officials

    After a long year of accusations and fraudulence and what is already old news to some, truth has surfaced and reached the Entirety of the House Of Representatives in Washington D.C on Thursday. A truth In the form of a four-page long FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) Memo, in which provides hard evidence into the abuse of power, intelligence weaponization and sinister political corruption of the FBI and DoJ (Department of Justice). In deceit with the Clinton Campaign, Fusion-GPS and Obama Administration, they funded and fabricated a fake Russian Dossier-a 17 page memo in which former M16 agent and head desk of Russian House Christopher Steele contributed to writing. This was then used to conspire against and blackmail president Trump and open the Robert Mueller investigation while illegally spying on him.
