There was a significant breakthrough was made in the UK’s Brexit divorce deal on Wednesday with the news that a draft of the agreement has been completed. The 500 page document was presented to Theresa May’s cabinet in a lock-in session on Wednesday night. It could turn out to be a huge day for the country but the reaction from many in her own party suggests it could well be the beginning of the end for the Prime Minister.
Earlier this week, it was reported by two of Hillary Clinton's former campaign advisors that a 2020 run would be likely. While there has been no official statement from Clinton, she has not denied the possibility of a presidential run in 2020. Today I would like to objectively discuss why this could be disastrous for the democratic party. To be clear, I am not saying that Hillary Clinton will definitely run in 2020, but that if she does, it could be the worst choice for a candidate the Democratic Party could make. In short, Hillary 2020 is a bad idea because first off, she lost to Donald Trump in 2016. It should have been an easy path to the presidency, but it absolutely was not. This is because her brand of politics just is not what the people are looking for anymore on either side of the aisle. Hillary Clinton represents what many people despise about American politics. For many, she is the lack of real change that has persisted for so many years. Finally, by running in 2020, she would be stepping on the toes of the Democratic party and holding it back for at least four years.
Brexit has been described as a tumultuous time in British Politics. This is mainly because the mainstream press has decided against using a more accurate set of four-letter words to describe the situation, but nevertheless they have been talking about it. The front pages of all the mainstream papers have soaked themselves in as much non-information about Brexit as possible. While Brexit is something which should be talked about, it could be argued that the United Kingdom’s exile from Europe could be suffocating more important news stories. Examples of these are the police taking the government to court due to more budget cuts, the NHS being sold to as many money-hungry tax-avoiders as possible and Phillip Green being revealed to be exactly what everyone expected him to be. This list of stories being overlooked because of Brexit is far too long to be written out, so I am going to focus on one particular incident, which took place during Prime Minister’s Questions this Halloween.
Sorry Rep. Pelosi, but you did not win the House. The DCCC didn’t win the House. The Resistance won the House. The Resistance made up of rational Republicans, Independents, Progressives, Liberals, and Democrats. This is not your win. Your run-of-the-mill, kumbaya, work across the aisle blather is exactly why, we, the resistance is telling you to step aside and let our new representatives run this thing.

For decades, Saudi Arabia has been globally acknowledged for its political weight and strong influence over the Middle East—due to its rich oil resources and for hosting the two holiest sites of the Islamic faith.
Councillor Tom Vegh, deputy mayor and regional councillor candidate for Newmarket, ordered what he called a “very boring,” blueberry muffin from Tim Horton’s before sitting down to discuss how more parking will help revitalize Main Street, what he called, “the heart of Newmarket.”
Republican senator and war hero John McCain was one of the last few politicians who became respected by both Democrats and Republicans alike. He was a man who finally spoke out against the corruption going on around Capitol Hill, when most other Republicans refused to.
Robert Mueller will be one of the most important names in American history books for years to come. His accolades already place him among the greatest defenders of iconic American values of rule of law, liberty, and freedom. However, Robert Swan Mueller III is on the verge of infamy or utmost honor, walking a tight rope of a partisan divide. In 2017, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller the head of The Special Investigation to inquire on possible election interference. The Russia Investigation is considered a witch hunt by the right and a glimmer of optimism by the left—with immense speculation of who is next in the probe. Mueller's investigation can serve as an inflection point for American's values and justice system. Learn some interesting facts about Robert Mueller—a man who has significant influence on forging American values.
For one thing, being represented by a White man in a district that’s predominately Black and Brown and female—no matter how progressive the person—is actually not representative in the way a representative democracy is supposed to be. It’s a matter of perspective.
Most men are gray in terms of their convictions. They hold onto good and life-affirming ideals while also clutching toxins at the same time. Many men have exhibited this dichotomy much like the late Senator John McCain. As he espoused “Duty, Honor, and Country” during his lifetime, the words encapsulate the man’s entire outlook on politics and life as a whole. Two out of the three ideals show a sense of what is the worst in an individual, duty and country.
I know I have written several pieces on the subject of the SNP and its effect on the life of Scotland and its political and people. So I decided to take a break from Scottish politics for a wee while. Unfortunately, I have no option but to write a little bit more about the present status of the SNP attempts to push for a second independence referendum and sundry other matters. Deep breath and here goes.....
