Joe Biden is Right, the Pandemic is Over. Joe Biden is Right, the Pandemic is Over.

(Akiit.com) President Joe Biden is on the wrong side of almost every issue. Since Biden became President, everything from border security to our economy has deteriorated.

How Former Mayor Eric Garcetti will be Remembered. How Former Mayor Eric Garcetti will be Remembered.

(Akiit.com) There was one moment that will always stand out for me that tells much about soon former Mayor Eric Garcetti’s eight-year tenure at City Hall. That was a long zoom one on one meeting I had with him in 2021 about the annual city budget. He was trying hard to reconcile his desire to pump millions more into a range of much needed city services while at the same time not drastically cutting... [Read more of this review]

Politics: How We Can Influence the Courts That Influence Our Lives? Politics: How We Can Influence the Courts That Influence Our Lives?

(Akiit.com) As I write this, the final few races are being called in the midterm elections that were held weeks ago. It’s clear that the House will be closely divided, with Republicans holding a very small majority. History shows that in midterm elections, the party that doesn’t hold the presidency typically gains a lot of seats in Congress — oftentimes in a wipeout of the party in power. Republicans’... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) (***) It’s a very simple story, at first. A modest allegory that pits religious fanaticism against common sense in a test of wills that slowly becomes biblical. Ireland 1862, 13 years after the Great Famine of 1845/49 caused millions of deaths. Anna (Kíla Lord Cassidy), an 11-year-old girl living in the rural Irish Midlands, is seemingly the saint of her devout community. The Chosen.... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) In a long, meandering speech at his Mar-a-Lago home last week, former President Donald Trump formally announced his third candidacy for president of the United States.
