A sign advocating for the recall of Gavin Newsom and the election of front-runner Larry Elder hangs along Highway 1 just outside of Half Moon Bay, California on Monday, September 6, 2021.

Trump’s Out of Office. Let’s Look Back

Cedrik von Briel, Politics Editor February 9, 2021
This four-year reality television (TV) show about a supposedly wealthy businessman and complete political outsider who ascends to the highest position this country can bestow was amazingly entertaining and (I’ll admit it) kind of fun to watch at times, but horrifyingly, scary for most of it.

What is QAnon?

Alexander Balfanz, Co-Editor in Chief December 11, 2020
