Examining the FBI’s Plans for Expansion: A Debate for the Public
New FBI headquarters expected to surpass size of the Pentagon

The federal government has plans for a new headquarters complex for the FBI on three sites in Virginia of 58, 61, and 80 acres.

Let the Federal Reserve Board Choose Their Own Chair
Unpacking the independence of the Fed

The Federal Reserve System (Fed), established in 1913, was designed to operate independently of the federal government. The Fed is overseen by a seven-member Board of Governors who are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the Senate for 14-year terms. The terms are staggered so that one Governor’s term expires every two years. Once their terms expire, Board members cannot be reappointed (although if they were appointed to a partial term because their predecessor left early, they could be).

The WEF’s War on Your Words and Your Wheels

Debunking the Myth: Clearing Up Misconceptions About Machine Gun Conversion Devices
Handguns that shoot thousands of rounds per minute?

You may have heard about a device that can be attached to handguns to turn them into rapid-fire automatic pistols. Called “machine gun conversion devices” or “switches,” they definitely make handguns more dangerous. After the first round is fired, recoil from that and subsequent rounds make such a gun difficult to control. Absent a skilled shooter, rounds are likely to strike targets they were not intended to hit.

Hollywood? No, Ottawa!: The Epidemic of Nepo Babies

Hollywood has a reputation for entrenched nepotism: Fairbanks, Houstons, Douglases, Barrymores, and Redgraves all got the industry’s plum roles for generations. A recent New York Magazine article spoke about the “nepo babies” and that they are thriving in an industry where a famous last name is valuable intellectual property. A young celebrity brings instant marketing appeal with millions of TikTok followers as the young and restless range of acting ability consists of modeling a variety of bathing suits and creating drama on the world’s best beaches.
