The long-awaited impeachment trial of the 45th president of the United States has arrived. Yet, facing removal from office, President Donald Trump feels invincible. I believe that if the House didn’t have enough evidence we wouldn’t be here. Trump has constantly abused his power as president. Tr...

Nick Sammarco

September 25, 2019

At this month’s Democratic debate in Texas, Democratic Presidential candidate and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke made a last-ditch attempt to save his doomed candidacy. In a move that showcased O’Rourke’s desperation for votes, he announced his support for a mandatory buyback (in other words,...

Refute: A Perfect Example of the Pro-Abortion Playbook

Nick Sammarco

March 27, 2019

The rebuttal by Phoebe Adams published in The Suffolk Journal prior to spring break is a quintessential example of the pro-abortion debate playbook.
