Is Sen. Elizabeth Warren Set to Fall? Is Sen. Elizabeth Warren Set to Fall?

(Akiit.com) This has been an awful week for the purported new 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. For months, Warren has received nearly unmitigated praise from the media for her bevy of “plans.” She’s been praised as “wonkish” and “brainy” and “focused.” Her growth in the polls has been the dual result of a... [Read more of this review]


Donald Trump, The Phone Call and Consciousness of Guilt. Donald Trump, The Phone Call and Consciousness of Guilt.

(Akiit.com) The July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Vlodomyr Zelensky is the central piece of evidence in the Democratic drive to remove the president from office. “That call was a smoking gun,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi said after House Democrats voted to formalize their impeachment inquiry.

(Akiit.com) Are the use of nooses as symbols of intimidation rising in the workplace? Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) data says that reports of racism and discrimination are on the rise. Their data does not speak to nooses, particularly. Still, it is disturbing to peruse newspaper reports to learn that at purportedly “woke” workplaces and supposedly liberal campuses, racists or fools... [Read more of this review]

Film Review; Black and Blue. Film Review; Black and Blue.

(Akiit.com) Black and Blue, a very modern dirty cop movie, is blessed with a tough-as-nails protagonist, set in a town where locals don’t trust police and told in short succinct scenes that have a steady rhythm. B&B doesn’t have the pedigree of a Sidney Lumet crime drama (Prince of the City), the blistering sadistic peril of an Antoine Fuqua movie (Training Day) or the bottom-of-the-gutter... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Anyone really believe the pearl-clutching class was actually upset about President Trump comparing the secret impeachment inquiry into him to a lynching? Democrats could barely catch their breath as they expressed their outrage over the tweet, and self-promoting TV conservatives fell right in line. What some people will do to maintain contracts that allow them to avoid honest work and having... [Read more of this review]


The Fraud Mitt Romney. The Fraud Mitt Romney.

(Akiit.com) I want my vote back, Mitt. Give me back my vote. In 2012, I voted for this insufferable establishment icon, this inept goof who the Democrats wish every Republican would emulate. Some nights, I wake up sweating and screaming when I relive it in my nightmares. I should have taken my ballot, lit it on fire and flushed it down the Schiffhole. But Romney does serve a purpose, as hard as that... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) In this week’s Democratic debate, presidential contenders sparred about nearly every recent news headline, focusing on rhetoric while stopping short of diving into specific policy solutions. We now know about their surprising friendships, but still, lack insight into how they would handle the issues that millions of Americans discuss at kitchen tables across the country. One of those... [Read more of this review]


Businesses Sucking Up To The Government. Businesses Sucking Up To The Government.

(Akiit.com) Whether you like them or not, a lot of big businesses are sucking up to government in ways couched as being principled, but are really just attempts to make sure they maintain their dominance. Preemptively addressing an issue is one way, an effective way, to keep the government from crushing your business, but it’s also a way some companies are hoping to fend off further scrutiny from... [Read more of this review]


5 Truths Most Americans Are Afraid to Say. 5 Truths Most Americans Are Afraid to Say.

(Akiit.com) Our world can be a dark place. There is abundant evidence of this, but one recent example was a threat of possible violence tied to the October opening of the film, “The Joker.” According to U.S. News & World Report, the FBI became involved when references were made to the 2012 shooting in an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater during another Batman movie. This comes after the tragic... [Read more of this review]


The Elizabeth Warren Wealth Tax Is Nothing New. The Elizabeth Warren Wealth Tax Is Nothing New.

(Akiit.com) Those who back the notion that Elizabeth Warren‘s wealth tax is a great idea have given it little to no thought. The Warren wealth tax is tailor-made to cater to the angry “income inequality” crowd on the left, because when people think of a wealth tax they think of a tax only on the wealthy – a “soak the rich” tax. Warren’s wealth tax can also be thought... [Read more of this review]


Twitter Is President Donald Trump’s Version of FDR’s ‘Fireside Chats’. Twitter Is President Donald Trump’s Version of FDR’s ‘Fireside Chats’.

(Akiit.com) Social media, and Twitter in particular, is President Trump’s version of a “fireside chat” — the tool he uses to speak directly to the American people. President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously used his fireside chats to buoy the nation’s spirits during the Great Depression and World War II — but he also used the weekly radio address to make the case for his policy proposals,... [Read more of this review]


Wahl Electric Shaver: Not Your Back to Work Choice. Wahl Electric Shaver: Not Your Back to Work Choice.

(Akiit.com) There are many black men that go about the routine of shaving, in various forms, for their personal preference or job requirement. I, and many black men I have encountered, grew up being told to stay away from electric shavers. This warning was given because our skin was deemed to sensitive for the constant passes, and in turn we would bump up pretty bad. Many black men already dealt with... [Read more of this review]
