We’re living in journalistic history, people. A massive, anonymous leak of financial documents from a Panamanian law firm has revealed an extensive and global network of offshore and rather illegal “shell” companies. In an era of history in which progressivism is on the rise and revolution dawns the mindsets of many different countries, we’ve just uncovered a massive scheme which allows the wealthy to hide all assets from taxes and to create laundering monopolies of billions in cash.
For those of you that haven’t been following my Twitter account, I’ve been pretty intrigued with calculating possible scenarios and victories for the presidential primaries. I spent a couple weeks spamming predictions and results, but in order to stop a political overflow on my site (I went about a solid month without posting any history, psychology, or sociology because of it), I started doing independent research and county-by-county predictions with a group of friends of mine.
I’ve been following the 2016 election since the minute the one in 2012 ended. I’m not even kidding, unfortunately. I frequently look at the political polls, I keep up to date on most of the campaigns, and I do my own independent research on the history of each candidate’s careers. If you would have told me in 2012 that real-estate tycoon and living ego Donald Trump was going to win the 2016 Republican nomination, I would have called you politically ignorant. If you would have shown me a newspaper dated from February 2016 that exclaimed “JEB BUSH SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN AS DONALD TRUMP SURGES IN SOUTH CAROLINA”, I would have exclaimed that you were really good at Photoshop.
