Opinion: Insurrection Denial and Lies About Election Fraud Are Destroying America
I’m tired of the media saying that politicians are making “baseless claims” of election fraud. There’s no need to sanitize it. Those politicians are lying. The press needs to say that they are lying.
Opinion: Many People Who Claim They Are "Patriots" Actually Hate America
I’m starting to mistrust the word “patriot.”. Calling yourself a “patriot” does not make you a patriot. I think it’s odd that many of the people who claim to be “patriots,” also fly the Confederate flag. The Confederate flag represents an attempt to overthrow our government. To me, that’s the opposite of patriotic.
Opinion: I’m Mistrustful of Insurrection Apologist Businessmen Who Become Politicians
I don’t feel businessmen have a good record as politicians. The purpose of being a businessman is to defeat your competition. The purpose of a politician should be to elevate the nation. These are contradictory objectives.
Opinion: The Best Way to Stop Crime Is to “Defund the Police”
I don’t understand why there is a huge resistance to the concept of defunding the police. The phrase has become a political tool. Unfortunately, that means that there is a lot of confusion about what it actually means.
Opinion: It's Not "Intolerant" to Denounce Hate Speech
The problem with American Conservatives is that they stomp all over everyone’s rights. The most recent example is the restriction on potentially life-saving reproductive health care.
Opinion: I Believe the January 6th Insurrection Disrespected America, the Constitution, and the Military
I remember watching the television on January 6th, 2021. A mob of rampaging Trump supporters attacked our Capitol. I remember feeling as if every window they broke and every barricade they smashed was like an attack on my own home.
Opinion: Is Joe Biden’s Mental Acuity a Cause for Concern?
Is Joe Biden’s mental acuity a cause for concern?. That probably depends on your political ideology, if we’re being honest. If you’re a progressive, then the answer is a big yes.
Opinion: Your Taxpayer Dollars Go to the Super Rich
One of the problems with the United States of America is that so many people do not live by their stated principles. If you don’t think loan forgiveness is a good thing, that’s fine. But you have to be critical of all people who have had their loans forgiven, not just members of the working class.
Opinion: Student Loan Forgiveness Should Be Just the Start
I’ve been reading some grumblings over Biden’s proposal to forgive certain student loans. However, I believe this action will have a major, positive impact. The White House is preparing to announce a student loan relief plan as early as Wednesday that would forgive up to $10,000 for some borrowers and further extend the current freeze on loan repayment, according to several people familiar with the plan—Biden closes in on student loan forgiveness plan and extension of repayment pause.
Opinion: Republicans Now Want to Defund the FBI
I don’t understand how conservatives think they can claim they are the party of “law and order.” Over the last few years, it seems as if they have made obstructing justice their political ideology.
Opinion: It's Unpatriotic for Republicans to Claim Election Fraud Without Evidence
The Republican tactic of claiming they won even though the vote count says otherwise got old on the very first day. Americans used to value concepts like honor. We used to value good sportsmanship. Now we seem to value whining. What happened?
Opinion: The Only Way to Deal With Republicans Is to Block Them From Your Life
Some of my former friends and family voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Their votes were cast anonymously and I didn’t ask. If they’d shown the common courtesy of keeping politics out of a polite discussion we might still be friends today.
Opinion: Claiming Voter Fraud Without Evidence Is Like Burning Votes
If there is one thing that has become clear since January 6th of 2021 it’s that people should not take radical action based on unsubstantiated claims. Unfortunately, many adults in American society respond emotionally when they’re given bad news.
Opinion: The Members of the January 6th Committee Are True Heroes and Patriots
All Americans are supposed to be loyal to the Constitution. The Constitution is the set of rules which protects our freedoms. Unfortunately, loyalty to an individual or a political ideology sometimes supersedes loyalty to our nation. When that happens, it puts all of our freedoms at risk.
Opinion: Baseless Accusations of Election Fraud Are Dividing the Country
As the bipartisan January 6th committee reveals more and more information, we obtain a better perspective of the mindset of the insurrectionists. Perhaps the most stunning revelation is that so many people were willing to engage in the destruction of property and violence without any evidence of wrongdoing.
Opinion: The Media Should Give Equal Time to the Two Election Theft Narratives that Led to The Insurrection
Who tried to steal the 2020 United States presidential election?. That’s the question that every American is asking. At this point, we know that there was an attempt to steal the election. The problem is that there are two narratives as to who might have been responsible.
Opinion: It's Misinformation to Suggest the Investigation Into the Insurrection Isn’t Bipartisan
A lot of Americans are pushing the false claim that the investigation into the insurrection of January 6th, 2021 is not bipartisan. This is only one of many inaccurate narratives that are meant to undermine the committee.
Opinion: The January 6th Committee Has Uncovered the Terrifying Truth About the Insurrection
I get sick to my stomach every time I watch the videos of the violent acts that took place at the Capitol on January 6th, 2021. On that day a lawless mob, falsely calling itself “patriots” engaged in a destructive attack against our country.
Opinion: I Believe That History Will Regard January 6th as an Insurrection
Today it is still controversial to discuss the January 6th insurrection. The committee hearings are ongoing, and many Americans refuse to watch the presentation of evidence. Many Americans deny that the events of January 6th represent a violent attack on our government and our very way of life.
Opinion: I Consider it Dishonest to Compare the Insurrection to the Summer Riots
It is upsetting to see how divided the United States has become. The January 6th committee is in the process of revealing the results of a year-long inquiry into the insurrection of 2021. Unfortunately, many Americans have dug in their heels and refuse to watch the conclusions.
