Congressional Compromise: The Partisan Stalemate Isn’t True

By Juan Ayala | United States

Most Would Say Congress Doesn’t Work

It would be very easy to say that Congress doesn’t work-sometimes it truly doesn’t. Moreover, it would be easy to infer that members of Congress also don’t work and are tainted with special interests; that’s the easy and ignorant way to look at it. To that effect, when was the last time you saw a story in the news that talked about bipartisan compromise, members working together, and a genuine sense of honesty amongst those in elected office? The answer most would say is very rare. Then, there are those such as myself that are quite deep within domestic politics. I am here to tell you that most members of Congress are trying to do the best they can.

Bush May Be Dead, But Crypto Isn’t

By Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

The news is in, and crypto is apparently dead. Again. After reaching a peak of nearly $20k in December of 2017, Bitcoin has been on a steady decline, ready to end 2018 at a far lower point than it began it with. With Bitcoin has gone every other major cryptocurrency. They are all on a steady decline, and those that invested at the all-time-high are most definitely on some kind of suicide watch.

President Trump Invited to George H. W. Bush’s Funeral

Jack Parkos | United States

Former President George H.W. Bush passed away on November 30th at age 94 in his home in Houston, Texas. Bush served as Vice President from 1981 to 1989, and as 41st President from 1989-1993. His memorial services are to be held throughout this week starting December 3rd.

The list of invited guests to his funeral will include his son and former President, George W. Bush, former Presidents Barrack Obama and Bill Clinton, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and many other political figures. Also in attendance will be current President of the United States, Donald Trump, as well as First Lady Melania Trump.

Trump was not invited to John McCain’s funeral earlier this year, with Mike Pence instead representing the administration. Trump has had a rocky relationship with the Bush’s, including when he claimed that George W. Bush made “the single worst decision ever made”. This had many people surprised to see Trump invited to the funeral.

The day of Bush’s passing, the President released a statement along with his wife Melania showing their respect for George H.W. Bush.

The next day President Trump tweeted again, calling Bush a “wonderful man”.

Trump has announced that he plans on attending the funeral, putting politics aside to mourn with the Bush family.  The current President said he looks forward to paying his respects. He has stated he will delay his planned press conference following his G20 summit meeting until after the funeral out of respect for the Bush family.
