Those Right-Wing Disrupters. Those Right-Wing Disrupters.

(Akiit.com) Recently, I saw two separate stories about right-wing disrupters. In one case, a well-known bookstore in the Washington, DC area, “Politics & Prose,” was visited by right-wing disrupters during a book event focused on “whiteness.” In another case, a discussion of race and politics in the Dominican Republic was disrupted by alleged Dominican fascists who are allies of the grandson... [Read more of this review]


Which is Worse? College Corruption or Admissions SCAM? Which is Worse? College Corruption or Admissions SCAM?

(Akiit.com) Last week’s column discussed the highly publicized university corruption scheme wherein wealthy parents bought admission at prestigious universities for their children. That is dishonest and gives an unfair advantage to those young people but won’t destroy the missions of the universities. There is little or no attention given by the mainstream media to the true cancer eating away at... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) We have a good news-bad news situation on our hands when it comes to defense spending. The good news is, it’s heading in the right direction: up. The bad news is, it remains too low to fix the spending holiday that afflicted our military for years — a failure to fund that has seriously compromised our readiness levels. Budget numbers released by Democrats, who control the House of Representatives,... [Read more of this review]


Really, War With Iran? Really, War With Iran?

(Akiit.com) Speaking on state TV of the prospect of a war in the Gulf, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei seemed to dismiss the idea. “There won’t be any war. … We don’t seek a war, and (the Americans) don’t either. They know it’s not in their interests.” The ayatollah’s analysis — a war is in neither nation’s interest —... [Read more of this review]


PETA, PETA Is Beyond Parody. PETA, PETA Is Beyond Parody.

(Akiit.com) Let me just say from the start that I love animals, and I’m not just talking about the delicious ones. I drive my wife a little nuts by feeding the birds, squirrels, deer, rabbits, and pretty much anything else I know that wanders through our yard. But our kids love watching them and so do I. Plus, we have a bunch on the inside of the house, too. That being said, I have a lot of issues... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) This week, representatives from Facebook, Google and Twitter will join with European leaders and the prime minister of New Zealand to launch a chilling proposal to curb free speech across the internet. Americans should be alarmed. Internet freedom is being extinguished fast in Europe. How long will it survive in the U.S.? Social media titans such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg have more... [Read more of this review]

The Essential Guide To Choosing Who To Vote For. The Essential Guide To Choosing Who To Vote For.

(Akiit.com) When it comes to politics, many people choose to forego their vote when they don’t see any candidate that represents their views or opinions. While this makes sense, it can be a foolhardy stance to take. Casting your vote is a right and a privilege and should never be dismissed without fully researching the candidates and parties that you could choose to elect. With the emergence of more... [Read more of this review]


The Equal Rights Amendment. The Equal Rights Amendment.

(Akiit.com) We get so consumed with stuff about the train wreck in the White House that we forget or miss important things going on in the nation and the world. Well, something good and historic happened in the U.S. Congress a few days ago. Chairman Jerry Nadler held a hearing on the Equal Rights Amendment! That should be so ordinary that it shouldn’t even make the news. Yet, it had been 36 years... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Fighting for the lives of the unborn and the empowerment of their mothers against a billion-dollar industry can be exhausting.

It’s emotional. And some days it can be disheartening. Today is not one... [Read more of this review]


President Donald Trump Promises, Made and Kept. President Donald Trump Promises, Made and Kept.

(Akiit.com) During the 2016 election, President Trump made plenty of campaign promises, as does any candidate. But this president has done what his predecessors often fail to accomplish: he has kept his promises. Perhaps the president’s most important accomplishment so far is his restoration of the judicial branch—a big reason many otherwise wary voters supported him in 2016. You probably already... [Read more of this review]
