    Sean Spicer Can’t Name A Single Legislative Accomplishment From Trump – The Ring Of Fire

    We’re a little more than a week away from Donald Trump’s 100-day mark of his time in office as the President of the United States. Yesterday during the White House press briefing, Sean Spicer was asked point-blank, “What do you think Donald Trump’s biggest legislative accomplishment has been in these 100 days? What kind of accomplishment should he be boasting about to the public?” Sean Spicer could not answer that question because I guess according to Sean Spicer, Donald Trump has accomplished approximately nothing since becoming President of the United States. Now, Spicer did talk about some of Trump’s executive orders, you know, I guess the ones that weren’t overturned…

From preschools to colleges, the Koch brothers have found a way to weasel their way into the American education system. And recently it was revealed that one of the organizations that they’re funding in order to do this is called the Bill of Rights Institute. What the Bill of Rights Institute has been putting out for free for teachers, so that you…

    Party Systems: Crash Course Government and Politics #41

    Hello, I’m Craig and this is Crash Course Government and Politics. And today we’re gonna talk about, well, mostly history. Wait Stan, this isn’t Crash Course History. This must be some kind of exception, like the Mongols. [Mongoltage] Apparently we’re not stepping on anybody’s toes by talking about the history of American political parties, as long as we stay away from history in general. Thank goodness, we wouldn’t want to start a Crash Course interdisciplinary feud. Just kidding, I’m totally feuding with that Phil guy over at Astronomy. [Theme Music] Political historians like to divide America into eras according to which parties were active at the time. These are called…

    Political Parties: Crash Course Government and Politics #40

    Hi, I’m Craig and this is Crash Course Government and Politics and today we’re gonna talk about parties. Woo! Yeah! No, not those kind of parties. We’re talking about political parties, which can be a lot less fun. Woo. [Theme Music] So, today we’re talking about why we have political parties and the role of parties in American politics. But before we dive into the pool – some would say a cesspool – that is political parties, let’s have a definition. Political party: a team of politicians, activists and voters whose goal is to win control of government. So kind of an important point: the goal of a party is…
