Identity politics make rational discourse impossible [Video]

One of the saying commonly attributed to statements like this above headline is to say “Captain Obvious” is speaking.

But do we really stop to consider just how widely destructive the use of identity politics actually is to running a representative republic?…

US’ false narrative prevents a sane relationship with Russia [Video]

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave a speech Monday in which he defended his record of “standing up to Russia” as an attempt to show his toughness compared with Democrats. However, in his statements, he also cast several “poison arrows” that are all but guaranteed to prevent the normalization of relations between the US and…
