On Aug. 10th, multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein allegedly committed suicide while in jail awaiting trial. Considering that guards fell asleep, the camera footage is unusable, and an autopsy found that Epstein had broken bones in his neck—something unusual for suicides—we may never truly know what happened in that cell in Manhattan.
When you hear the name Niccolò Machiavelli, you probably think of a man who advocated for tyranny. You probably think he was a man who advocated for leaders to become tyrants with no morals. In fact, the term “Machiavellian” has become pseudonymous with a schemer who believes the ends justify the means. In literature, he’s the manipulative character who schemes against people for his own gain by any means necessary.

In a recent tweet, presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard discussed her stance on big tech’s suppression of free speech. Gabbard came out against the suppression of speech by both big government and big tech companies. She stood to defend free speech, civil liberties, and privacy, calling them “essential to our American values.” Many believe that free speech has been in danger of suppression recently.
Following the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump made a statement condemning violent video games.
“We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace.”
Even more criticisms of gaming come from the older generation. The common argument goes that playing violent games causes violence amongst gamers, possibly leading to mass shootings. However, while their claims may sound reasonable, there is no evidence to suggest this.
President Donald Trump has been described by many Republicans as the best leader since Reagan. Trump has lead a strong movement since he announced his campaign in 2016. He is building a strong race into the 2020 election. But what about after the 2020 election? What happens in 2024 or even further in the future? Who will be the next leader of the GOP? What is the future of the conservative movement? The answer may be staring us in the face: Dan Crenshaw.
