No longer a fringe movement, the ideology of Sanders has become the ideology of the mainstream Democratic Party–win or lose the nomination, Sanders has won 2020.
What the California Republican Party needs is a new generation of leadership determined to take back this state—one wholly separate from the consultants like Chairwoman Jessica Patterson who make their fortunes managing decline, and from the policy and media illiterate baby boomers who, bless their hearts, still cannot get over Ronald Reagan and continue to uphold his—so holy is His name— disastrous, self-serving 11th commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”
For many professional athletes, the first paycheck is the breakthrough moment that validates their commitment and perseverance. However, what many fail to realize is that what follows this first testament to success is equally, if not more, important for their futures than the journey there.
In an era when a serious political discussion with those of differing viewpoints is nearly impossible, when attention spans have been reduced to sound bites of 30 seconds or less cut and sold for Instagram and Twitter, film remains one of the only mediums capable of piercing the cloud of anger, distrust, and myopia that hangs over our nation and seeps into every aspect of our lives.

He is everything leftists want a conservative to be: a smug, uncompassionate child of privilege who isn’t nearly as smart as he thinks he is. These are the sorts of derogatory stereotypes that true conservative students have to go to great lengths to disprove.
Breed and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors are hopeful that this ban will prevent e-cigarette usage by the city’s teens. But, this legislation does not prevent teen usage at all. Moreover, it creates black markets, or even worse, drives smokers back to even more harmful products: traditional cigarettes.
Imagine my confusion when Gelson’s announced that Broguiere’s would be shutting down — with milk sales brisk and social media abuzz, what could be forcing this otherwise vigorous business off the market? Large corporations like Kraft and Nestle have always eaten into sales, but owner Ray Broguiere says that state and local regulations are making continued business untenable.
The Federal Reserve has seemingly changed its position on interest rates yet again, thus further demonstrating a disturbing lack of policymaking cohesion under Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. Rate cuts are likely, but when will they come, and will they be enough to lift a sagging economy?
