I feel as if my favorite pastime, video games, don’t get enough attention in my blogs due to my desire to cover politics in a timely manner. To remedy this, I want to establish a recurring series on this blog, where I cover the politics of video games. I’ll switch between covering more obvious political … Continue reading Politics in Games: The World of Watch Dogs
Here’s the Brian Stelter Twitter thread I refer to later: https://twitter.com/brianstelter/status/880051302167924736 I read a fascinating Twitter thread yesterday where Brian Stelter, a journalist and correspondent at CNN, complained about what he called “anti-journalistic sentiment”. He claimed that criticism towards journalism is good, as long as it's constructive, but that most of the critiques being … Continue reading Is Journalism Worth Saving In 2017?
For the first time in weeks, nothing huge happened in politics today that’s worth covering. There was a small development in the CNN story I talked about yesterday though. It turns out that James O’Keefe will be putting out a video a day all this week exposing CNN and their faking of the Trump/Russia narrative. … Continue reading 5 Things I Love About Going to Baseball Games
Here’s the viral video that came out today exposing CNN. Surprisingly made #1 Trending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdP8TiKY8dE I’ve come to develop a philosophy in my life, due to something I’ve noticed about human psychology. “It doesn’t matter if you’re right, if everybody else is wrong.” A related philosophy is the notion of being so far ahead … Continue reading Why the Exposing of CNN Surprised Nobody
Here’s an hilariously delusional post from WashPo that is a good litmus test for how delusional mainstream media is right now: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2017/06/27/trumps-travel-ban-still-doesnt-make-any-sense/?utm_term=.d2af14c9820e With a startling 9-0 decision from the U.S. Supreme Court today, Donald Trump’s proposed travel ban will be instated in a limited format. In actual practice, the limited version of Trump’s travel … Continue reading Why You Should Care About Trump’s Travel Ban, Limited or Not
Today in Chicago, several Jewish members of the LGBTQAI+ community were told that they weren’t allowed to fly their Star of David flags at the “Dyke March”. The “Dyke March” is a variant of the typical Chicago Pride Parade, claiming to place a larger emphasis on social justice and being more inclusive. Ironically this is their reasoning for banning the Star of David from their event, as in their mind it is a hateful symbol. When questioned how the symbol of the Jewish people and the nation of Israel was hateful, the organizers of the “Dyke March” claimed that they were “anti-Zionist” and “Pro-Palestine”.
I wanted to try something new with today's blog. Instead of doing a typical post, I created an online quiz that allows you to determine what type of anarchist you are, if you even are one. I find that most people in my generation are increasingly distrustful of authority and the state, and this has … Continue reading What Kind of Anarchist Are You? (Quiz)
When musicians, actors, directors, and writers all echo the same constant violent rhetoric, it makes you stop and wonder why they made these statements to begin with. Sure, Madonna could have just been venting when she said she wants to blow up the White House, but what if just one of her fans didn’t think she was joking? What if that one person also loved the Avengers, and watched its director, Joss Whedon, gather all of his favorite superhero actors in one video that called the current president a crook, a villain, and a liar? What if that one person also follows Rachel Maddow on Twitter, and sees her day after day accuse the president of hacking the election with Russia?
Netflix has a horrible habit of creating or producing super high quality content, and then doing nothing on its service to promote it to the masses. It buries top notch TV shows and web series beneath what it relies on as its tent pole productions, like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. … Continue reading Five Came Back Review: A Netflix Look Back At
To provide contrast to what I’m about to write, here’s an hilariously dire article from the (failing) Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/21/us/politics/trump-iowa-rally-venting-session.html President Trump finally took a much needed break from what he humorously called the “Washington Swamp” to deliver a “Make America Great Again” speech that would serve as a recap on what he’s done so … Continue reading How Trump’s Speech in Iowa Provided a Much Needed Morale Boost
