Chicago faces a lot of criticism every day, whether it be about the city’s high crime rates or for draining money from the rest of Illinois.

Can Donald Trump win the 2020 election and stay in the Oval Office? I think right now he is my favorite to win, although I wish that was not the case. For so long, the Democratic Party used multiple upon multiple avenues to try to get the president impeached. Calling for tax returns, using an...

All we hear today are false facts, where is the truth?

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

February 7, 2019

Yet again President Donald Trump amazes me with his outlandish claims on several political, economic and social issues at his State of the Union Address Tuesday night.
