Ryan and Johnson ramp up absurd FBI attacks

Although the State of the Union did not mention it, the state of the special counsel’s investigation into possible Russian collusion with the Trump campaign is in peril. While former FBI director Robert Mueller presses onwards, Republican congressmen, including Wisconsin’s Paul Ryan and Ron Johnson, have attempted to undermine the validity of the investigation in ways that are clearly misleading and shocking to those paying attention. Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a memo from its chairman, Rep.

Trump's censorship is authoritative, harmful

Fetus . Diversity. Transgender. Vulnerable. Entitlement. Science-based. Evidence-based.  These are all words that the Trump administration has chosen to ban from the budget proposals of the Center for Disease Control.

With how critical a role Housing plays in campus life, I am concerned about how the mandatory Dining deposit will impact low-income students access to our state’s public flagship university.


Letter to the Editor: College Republicans avoid real issues to mock fellow student

This past week’s news headlines highlighted stories such as major sexual assault allegations and the House Republicans passing a dangerous tax plan, yet the College Republicans of UW-Madison chose to dedicate their “CR’s Newsflash” vlog about a tweet. Not about one of the countless tweets made by President Trump irrationally insulting Kim Jong-un, threatening a nuclear war, or spewing blatantly false facts.


Mass shootings will not end until better gun control enacted

Gun control doesn’t work!” Except for in Australia, Scotland and Japan... The recent shootings we have experienced show that gun violence is a uniquely American problem and it’s time to stop pretending that consistent mass shootings are “unavoidable.” By extension, it’s time to recognize that we need stricter gun control.
