Recently, Paul Ryan finally and begrudgingly pledged his support for Donald Trump. However, many Republicans have declared they’ll not support Trump. They aren’t voting for Hillary but they won’t support Trump. So, what’s in it for Paul Ryan and the Republican hierarchy to not support Trump? After all, their actions could propel Republican voters to create a third party or worse, cause a win for the Democrats. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/03/us/politics/paul-ryan-donald-trump.html?_r=0
French journalist, Nicolas Henin, held captive by ISIS for ten months along with American journalist James Foley, says we’re playing into ISIS hands. Henin claims ISIS is playing a political game with the West and they’re winning. After his time with ISIS, he says we’re doing exactly what ISIS wants us to do by furthering anti-muslim sentiment and pushing young people into extremism. Henin says, “What we have to do – and this is really key – is we have to engage the local people. As soon as the people have hope for a political solution, the Islamic State will just collapse.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/nicolas-henin-the-man-who-was-held-captive-by-isis-for-10-months-says-how-they-can-be-defeated-a6757336.html
FBI’s decision not to recommend indictment for Hillary Clinton has shocked not just Republicans but Democrats as well. The response from political analysts is that there are rules for all of us but they don’t apply to the Clintons. Some are calling the FBI the “Formerly Believable Institution”. Did Hillary and the Obama Administration just tell Americans, in a brazen and criminal way, that they are in charge and American citizens?
Jesse Williams, star of Grey’s Anatomy, received the humanitarian award recently at the BET awards. His acceptance speech included a number of statements criticizing police killing innocent black people, the concepts of white privilege, and the idea of true freedom for black people in the US. Can activists, like Jesse Williams and Black Lives Matter, find a common ground with libertarians or conservatives? Both parties seek freedom from oppression. Are we simply disagreeing on the routes to get to the same outcome? http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/06/arts/television/fire-jesse-williams-for-bet-speech-petition-says-but-hes-not-worried.html
