Colors: Cyan Color

On Tuesday, the trial of Derek Chauvin ended with a guilty verdict on all three counts: second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter. As everyone knew, if the jury came back with anything less, the rioting around the country would have caused immeasurable damage and untold injuries. Hopefully, this verdict will placate the radicals who would join in with the mob, but can a verdict under these circumstances be trusted?

Over the last few weeks, an unprecedented number of illegal aliens have crossed the border between the United States and Mexico.  The Biden administration is completely overwhelmed, refusing to provide information or access to the media.  The word “crisis” is certainly appropriate, yet the administration refuses to use that term.  Word games aside, this is a crisis.

 On March 23, Israel held a multi-party election. With no party having won a majority, both Benjamin Netanyahu and Yair Lapid are reaching out to the other parties to try to put together a governing coalition. In the end, it will be up to also-ran politicians like Benny Gantz, Naftali Bennett, and Gideon Saar to determine who the next Prime Minister will be or whether there will be yet another election, the fifth in two years. Based on past experience, the decisions of the also-rans will be made based on their personal and political interests rather than the good of the country or even the people who voted for them.

It is not an understatement to say that this past year has been incredibly tumultuous; for many people this has been the hardest year of their lives. This city has suffered, tremendously, an unprecedented health crisis that has had a devastating economic effect. Thankfully, there is now light at the end of the tunnel, but we still have a way to go and must remain vigilant for a little bit longer. This great city was not problem-free before this pandemic hit; however, many of the issues have been exacerbated because of it.

After an officer-involved shooting in Minneapolis this past weekend, the beleaguered residents of the city were again treated to rioting and looting of their businesses.  Last summer, when these riots occurred nationwide, the sentiment was that it would all end once the Democrats were back in charge.  As conservatives warned at the time, the riots will never stop because the Left is not taking the steps necessary to make them stop.

 h moment of truth could be coming for two politicians who were riding high. Both have been in office for a long time and have dominated politics. Both face serious legal problems. Both have a reputation for bullying other politicians. And the colleagues they have antagonized may come back to haunt them as they face the most serious challenge yet to their hold on power.
