An asymmetrical playing field that continues to divide the nation and perpetuate ever-growing anger and resentment amongst President Donald Trump's 74 million supporters. </p> <p>Take election integrity. Democrats get a free pass to sow distrust in our elections to serve their political ambitions no matter how divisive and destabilizing to our country. If you recall, over the past four years Hillary Clinton claimed the election was stolen from her while fellow Democrats refused to accept the results of the 2016 election. In September 2019, The Washington Post reported, "Hillary Clinton dismissed Trump as an 'illegitimate president' and suggested that 'he knows' that he stole the 2016 presidential election." <p>Updated: Fri Jan 08, 2021</p> a289f6532cb3c5a380e0d8a74ecad2f5 Are Mask Mandates Working? for 01/01/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/12/20/are-mask-mandates-working Fri, 01 Jan 2021 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Joe Biden has been tweeting about his plan to implement a 100-day national mask mandate. A largely symbolic statement given the vast majority of Americans are already wearing masks and have been doing so for many months now, if not the duration of the pandemic. </p> <p>Today, 38 states plus D.C. and Puerto Rico already have mask requirements. Other states, in lieu of a statewide order, have opted to permit counties to make their own decisions based on local infection rates. Or some states have required mandatory face coverings for specific industries such as salons and barbershops where people come into close contact. </p> <p>That said, should politicians be expanding mask requirements 10 months into the pandemic or instead prudently reviewing the data to examine whether or not face coverings have been effective in curbing the spread of the coronavirus? <p>Updated: Fri Jan 01, 2021</p> 736ee9c60907fd392ab27fd6cc5302ab High Time Elected Officials Forfeit Their Paychecks During Lockdowns for 12/18/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/12/20/high-time-elected-officials-forfeit-their-paychecks-during-lockdowns Fri, 18 Dec 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>We're "all in this together," or so we were told at the outset of the pandemic 10 months ago. </p> <p>This once-comforting notion has quickly morphed into survival of the fittest given the stringent government restrictions and crushing lockdowns that have violated our collective freedoms and destroyed the livelihoods of millions of Americans. <p>Updated: Fri Dec 18, 2020</p> 6e9a1e1e2f8d9453b949a9b47a05a983 Techno-Fascism Strikes Again for 12/11/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/12/20/techno-fascism-strikes-again Fri, 11 Dec 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Whoever controls the information we see or don't see controls the universe &#8212; and must be reined in without delay. </p> <p>We're talking about Big Tech's ever-expanding ability to shape and control public opinion on any topic it desires &#8212; including U.S. elections &#8212; by censoring conservatives' tweets and posts while amplifying liberal voices and news stories favorable to Democratic candidates. <p>Updated: Fri Dec 11, 2020</p> 7d6e5130c93e962cce03e983771a47ac Fast Track COVID-19 Vaccine to Teachers So Schools Reopen for 11/27/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/11/20/fast-track-covid-19-vaccine-to-teachers-so-schools-reopen Fri, 27 Nov 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Now that COVID-19 vaccines are becoming available, governors nationwide must prioritize getting it to teachers so America's schools reopen without delay. We simply cannot allow millions of children to continue to be isolated at home staring at computer screens all day. Remote learning is harming their physical and mental health while denying them a quality education.</p> <p>This attempt to protect our nation's children during the pandemic is doing more harm than good. </p> <p>Let's start with the obvious: Children staring at computer screens while being sedentary 6-8 hours a day is increasing their risk of getting diabetes and a host of other deadly diseases.

"It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric. To lower the temperature. To see each other again. To listen to each other again. To make progress we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy," he said. "We are not enemies. We are Americans." </p> <p>A well-scripted sentiment that's out of touch with our deeply divided nation as the Democratic Party and its media allies have spent the past four years calling Donald Trump's supporters racist &#8212; and every other repugnant smear you can think of. That's not exactly a way to win over half the country and heal the nation. <p>Updated: Fri Nov 13, 2020</p> 53767ac025dc31008777ea69444ed690 Big Tech Using Censorship to Tip Elections for 11/06/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/11/20/big-tech-using-censorship-to-tip-elections Fri, 06 Nov 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p></p><p>We've reached a crisis point in America when the president of the United States &#8212; the leader of the free world &#8212; is being censored by social media networks during a presidential election and the pivotal days that have followed.<p>Updated: Fri Nov 06, 2020</p> 77dcbc5ffb43fc446ab05ee5e2cf7315 Trump Has Earned a Second Term for 10/30/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/10/20/trump-has-earned-a-second-term Fri, 30 Oct 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Despite living in one of the bluest states in America, Massachusetts, I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and will proudly do so again on Election Day. </p> <p>There are many reasons why the president has earned my vote again, but high on the list is his proven success in leading the great American comeback in his first three years in office &#8212; cutting taxes for middle-income earners, slashing job-killing regulations and achieving historically low unemployment for all. </p> <p>And if the latest gross domestic product report released by the Commerce Department on Thursday is any indication &#8212; showing a record-breaking 33.1% acceleration in the last quarter &#8212; during a pandemic &#8212; imagine what our jobs president can achieve with a COVID-19 vaccine on the horizon. <p>Updated: Fri Oct 30, 2020</p> bf5bba93e023e2234f67485f6254f7f7 Holding Big Tech Accountable for 10/23/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/10/20/holding-big-tech-accountable Fri, 23 Oct 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Big Tech titans Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg better lawyer up.</p> <p>These enemies of free speech and a free press will be hauled in to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee to explain their brazen censorship of conservatives.
