Trump v..? 2020 Prediction Map | Sarah Stook

In 2020, Trump will run again. Barring all major catastrophes (yes, that includes his first term), it is without a doubt that Trump will try again. His 2020 re-election campaign is already in the works and judging from both actions and comments on the subject, he intends to be a two-term President. Will he win? […]

One Year On: A Trump Presidency (Part Three)│ Sarah Stook

As a populist with some isolationist and protectionist streaks, Trump has an interesting view on a number of issues, which is why he managed to win the nomination, and ultimately, the Presidency. In regards to immigration, Trump went further than any of his rivals in his rhetoric, his strong views speaking to the (mainly) white […]

One Year On: A Trump Presidency (Part One) | Sarah Stook

One year ago today, everything seemed to be in place for a Clinton Presidency. Some polls showed an above 90% chance and all media seemed to be readying themselves for the first female President. Even Trump didn’t believe that he would win, electing to hire a smaller hall in New York so that he could […]

2016 GOP Candidates: What Now?│ Sarah Stook

It’s been over a year since Donald Trump became the Republican candidate for the 2016 election, nearly a year since he was elected and nine months since he was sworn in as President in front of the US Capitol Building. It’s been a crazy year for him and for the world, as we watched the […]

Opinion: Don’t Blame the World, Hillary- Blame Yourself | Sarah Stook

From The One Show (God that was a painful thing to watch) to Andrew Marr, Hillary Clinton has been doing the rounds to promote her new election/post-election memoir, What Happened. Apart from having to relive that awful read (see my review), having Hillary Clinton blaming the world for her problems all week has been somewhat […]

Birth Control: A Question of Religion and Morality | Sarah Stook

In a recent policy update, it has been announced that Donald Trump plans to roll birth control being covered by health insurance, something mandated by his pet hate, Obamacare. Predictably, there has been a somewhat polarising reaction to this news- some (mainly on the left) believe that it is a healthcare right as much as […]

Will The Next Republican Candidate Please Stand Up? │ Sarah Stook

In 2024, the 60th Presidential Election will occur. Assuming that President Trump will stand again in 2020 (we have had no reason to believe in the contrary), it will be another seven years before Americans will head to the ballot box to pick their Republican nominee. Harold Wilson once said that ‘a week is a […]

Trump’s Administration Cannot Succeed Without a Clear Agenda │ Joseph Prebble

A little over seven months into his first term, President Donald Trump is spending his time retweeting random members of the public who pay him compliments, blasting the FAKE NEWS media, and boasting of his successes. There has never been a one-man public relations offensive quite like it. That he feels the need to do […]

How The Democrats Were Lost │Sarah Stook

The 2016 US Presidential Election, the 58th of its kind was nothing short of exciting. With a colourful array of candidates, quick quips, harsh insults and insane policy being thrown around, even those disinterested in politics found it to be an exciting election cycle. The candidates themselves were what made it. Even minor candidates such […]
