Melania Trump has announced today that she will be stepping down as First Lady of the United States just days before Joe Biden’s inauguration. This marks the fourth member of Trump’s cabinet to resign in the short time since a violent pro-Trump mob attempted to seize the Capitol. Although Melania insists that her decision was motivated purely by a sense of moral crisis, critics are speculating that the timing is a little convenient.

Melania gave a brief statement to the White House Press Corps this afternoon in the Melania Trump Freedom Botanical Menagerie, formerly known as the Kennedy Rose Garden.

After the Washington Post broke the story, releasing over an hour’s worth of audio recording of President Trump pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and doing his best to coerce the SOS into overturning the 2020 Presidential Election results in Georgia, there has been a national outcry to impeach President Trump… Again. Not everyone seems to agree though. Senate Republicans are coming forward to justify the president’s actions and offer their own take on why this doesn’t merit impeachment.

After another failed day in court, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, has called for Americans to take to the streets and incite violence. The lawsuit in question was intended to grant Vice President Pence the power to overturn the 2020 Presidential Results. Gohmert told reporters shortly after the case’s dismissal that, “You better believe the commies would be rioting in the street, were the shoe on the other foot, and that’s where we’re gonna meet them!” Many have expressed concern that Gohmert is actively stoking flames to agitate members of far right groups with a history of violence, like the Proud…

The New Year began this week with riots in the United States, as actor, comedian, musician, and national treasure Steve Harvey mistakenly declared Donald Trump the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election. During what producers insist was intended to be a “cute bit” as a part of the nationally beloved Dick Clark’s A New Year’s Rockin’ Eve program and in between performances by Billy Porter/Cyndi Lauper and headliner Jenifer Lopez, Harvey was tasked with cheekily recreating his now infamous 2015 Miss Universe Faux Pas. …

Joshua Hawley, United States Junior Senator to Missouri, announced today that effective immediately he will be rescinding the Kansas City Chiefs’ status as reigning Super Bowl Champions. While the bold move has earned Hawley no love in his home state, it has placed him front and center on the National Political Stage, leaving some to question his motives.

Twitter User @90sWWE: “It’s Bernie with a Steel Chair”

In what can only be called a bizarre turn of events, two-time presidential hopeful and senator from Vermont, Bernard Sanders has challenged senate majority leader Mitch McConnell to an actual duel. Citing an obscure clause of parliamentary procedure, Sanders has challenged Mitch McConnell to a real life duel. Yes you read that correctly, the 2020 congressional year will conclude with a knock down, drag out fight between two United States Senators, both pushing 80 years old. Bernie Sanders used an obscure Revolutionary Era congressional protocol to halt all action on the Senate floor and formally initiate a duel with Mitch…

2 AM CT NOV 4th: Things were petering out. After hours of counting and reminders from every major news outlet, it seemed most Americans, politicians, news pundits, butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers, had come to terms with the votes not being counted in total on election night. There was, however, one man who remained unconvinced, the current president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Only hours before, presidential hopeful Joe Biden made his speech to round out the evening. He emphasized that he believed when the votes were counted, he would win. He was hopeful and optimistic. …


Porcupine with Flowers by Pete Nuji,

More so than ever before, this year my social media is flooded with friends who plan to vote third party, specifically Libertarian. As Democrats echo “Vote blue no matter who” throughout my feed, these friends actively resist. These are the people in my feed who despise the Two Party System, the ones who would burn it to the ground if they could, and they’ve turned to the Libertarian Party in hopes that it can provide the means to achieve that goal. These newfound Libertarians must be at least a little bit optimistic, because they either believe that Jorgensen can win…

A shiny red tie and a bright blue tie made their way onto the stage Thursday evening, each wrapped around the neck of one of our two candidates in the 2020 Presidential Election. As moderator Kristen Welker announced their names, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden took the stage. Each candidate dawning the color traditionally representing their party, red and blue, and hoping to make one more passionate plea to gain the vote of the American people. …

Everyone who’s ever played Among Us has probably caught themselves sometime between their first and fiftieth game saying, “Yeah, but how do I win?” The game, by design, can bring out different, very distinct styles of play. The intense psychological elements of the game have a natural tendency to encourage the same few specific types of player. Each of those styles has strengths, just as each has weaknesses. While you could realistically discuss, critique, and dissect players, sub categorizing them even further into more types, these three styles would remain at the heart of each. The goal of this article…
