Trump threatens to cut funding for schools that don’t reopen

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) rolled out a 9-page checklist for school districts, listing things that, in their judgment, would need to be done before schools could safely be reopened to children.

Mattis joins Mullen in speaking out, warning America of what may come next, if Trump isn’t stopped

Yesterday, Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas issued a statement saying that the only response to the “violent anarchists and insurrectionists” protesting in America’s cities was an “overwhelming display of force.” And, today, in the New York Times, he elaborated, saying that the U.S. military needed to be deployed across the United States against those whom […]
