Mueller Indictments Begin

Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump-Russia scandal finally brought charges forth this week and everyone is anxious to find out what's going to happen. Will Trump himself be affected at all? At the rate Sanders Huckabee, Fox News and Trump's tweets are going, you'd guess not, especially with the current lack of checks and balanced within the system, but everyone can dream. Even if it does happen, there's still Pence, Ryan and co.

Jeff Flake Says Enough

He's not going Democrat, but Jeff Flake says that he's had enough of the outrageousness that is Washington right now. Although he's retiring, he says he also can't stand by while Trump and Co. dismantle this country and his party. He says that while Trump is leading the Republicans, they are becoming a "fearful, backwards thinking minority party" and that there is a sickness in the system. 

Gun Control Now

Enough is enough. It's time to bring back the common sense gun laws that we had in this country before buffoons stripped them bare. The simple background checks, waiting periods, assault rifle bans and other laws that made us safer from those who would use guns to harm us are needed now more than ever. It's ridiculous that we even have to repeat history to demand them back.

Take a Knee, Friends

There is no such thing as a non-offensive protest that actually gets the job done. Are you tired of people complaining about protestors, saying things like, "If they just did what Dr. King did things would be fine!" Well, Dr. King took the knee. Dr. King led marches and events that disrupted people's daily lives. That is how protests work. Rosa Parks wasn't protesting transportation when she refused to move from her seat and Colin Kaepernick isn't protesting the U.S. flag, either: both were protesting systematic racism that contradicts the freedoms that flag is supposed to represent.

Trump Eliminates DACA

Yesterday I saw a meme where Osama Bin Laden was brought back to life and standing next to Trump. It had a caption that indicated Trump was doing something else to undo all of Obama's work and it would've made me laugh if it didn't make me cry. Donald Trump is the real American Horror Story that Ryan Murphy and company are even acknowledging (okay, so they're pointing out overreaction on both sides of the aisle).

Another Day, Another Rally

Donald Trump seems to think he's still campaigning. He gave this bombastic, ridiculously long speech in Arizona last night and basically attempted to divide the nationa harder than ever. I'm wondering if it's this man's intention to create another civil war in the United States because that's the way it feels as if this road is going. Perhaps he witnessed just how unified everyone seemed on Monday during the eclipse and thought, "Nope, gotta keep 'em separated."
