Recent articles have suggested that anti-intellectualism is on the rise, spurring fear that the “dumbing down” of America is occurring, especially with the results of the recent elections. It’s easy to see an increase in radically anti-intellectual ideologies as a worrying change in public opinion, when in reality it is a historical ideology that has always been popular, but is finally being exposed because of the age of communication. Anti-intellectualism is hatred and mistrust of intellectuals and intellectual pursuits. The ideology is often used to oppress dissent, as academics are the first threat to totalitarian power. It has shaped many wars, leaders, and social classes in the modern world. Appealing to the common-folk, it is often misconstrued as a way to fight societal and economic power imbalances. Since the dawn of civilized society access to education has been limited by status. Desire to work was the virtue that was to fill the void of discovery. From peasants, to military, to the new middle-class, anti-intellectualism is most commonly found in groups that are not allowed access to education. These ideas originate from government and elite-spread propaganda — hard work is success for those that we need to stay the “workers” in our society. Often these people are the majority of a population, those that would pose the greatest threat to the power structures.
FEB-2017.- What wil new Treasury Secretary focus on? As Treasury Secretary and Principal Economic Advisor Mr. Mnuchin will spearhead President-elect Trump’s plan to develop a dynamic, booming economy that will create millions of new jobs over the next decade. Top priorities will include: Pushing a pro-growth tax plan where every income group will receive a tax cut and low-income Americans will pay no taxes at all. Working with President-elect Trump to craft a modern regulatory framework that slashes the out-of-control bureaucracy that costs our economy trillions each year. Working with President-elect Trump and economic leaders to implement an America First trade policy that ensures that every single one of our trade agreements increases our GDP growth rate, reduces our trade deficit, and strengthens our manufacturing base. Enacting a common sense economic plan, we will unleash American energy, creating millions of new jobs and slashing costs for consumers. Proposing the "Penny Plan," which will reduce spending by almost $1 trillion over ten years by simply reducing non-defense, non-safety net spending by one percent each year.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Such language has created considerable debate regarding the Amendment's intended scope. On the one hand, some believe that the Amendment's phrase "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms" creates an individual constitutional right for citizens of the United States. Under this "individual right theory," the United States Constitution restricts legislative bodies from prohibiting firearm possession, or at the very least, the Amendment renders prohibitory and restrictive regulation presumptively unconstitutional. On the other hand, some scholars point to the prefatory language "a well regulated Militia" to argue that the Framers intended only to restrict Congress from legislating away a state's right to self-defense. Scholars have come to call this theory "the collective rights theory." A collective rights theory of the Second Amendment asserts that citizens do not have an individual right to possess guns and that local, state, and federal legislative bodies therefore possess the authority to regulate firearms without implicating a constitutional right.
Bharara was born in Ferozepur, India, and immigrated to the United States with his family when he was a young child. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College in 1990 and his J.D. from Columbia Law School three years later. While attending the Law School, Bharara served as a member of the Columbia Law Review. Bharara worked as a litigation associate in New York City until 2000, when he was chosen by then U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Mary Jo White ’74 to serve as an assistant U.S. Attorney in her office. For the next five years, he focused mainly on the prosecution of organized crime and narcotics cases. In 2005, Bharara moved to Washington, D.C., to serve as Senator Charles E. Schumer’s chief counsel on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. He also worked as staff director for the Senate Subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts, and helped lead the Senate’s investigation into the firing of several U.S. Attorneys during President George W. Bush’s second term. President Barack Obama nominated Bharara to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York post in May 2009. The Senate unanimously confirmed his nomination, and he was sworn into office that August. As the Southern District’s chief prosecutor, Bharara oversees more than 220 assistant U.S. Attorneys dealing with a wide range of cases, including those involving terrorism, narcotics, public corruption, organized crime, and white-collar crime. During the past four years, he has received praise for his handling of some of the most high-profile cases in U.S. history, such as the successful prosecutions of arms trafficker Viktor Bout, terrorist Faisal Shahzad, and hedge-fund manager Raj Rajaratnam. In February 2012, Time magazine featured Bharara on its cover, referring to him as the man who is “busting Wall St.” In 2011, he was awarded Columbia Law School’s Lawrence A. Wien Prize for Social Responsibility.
Real estate developer Donald John Trump was born in 1946, in Queens, New York. In 1971, he became involved in large, profitable building projects in Manhattan. In 1980, he opened the Grand Hyatt, which made him the city's best-known developer. In 2004, Trump began starring in the hit NBC reality series The Apprentice, which also spawned the offshoot The Celebrity Apprentice. Trump turned his attention to politics, and in 2015 he announced his candidacy for president of the United States on the Republican ticket. After winning a majority of the primaries and caucuses, Trump became the official Republican candidate for president on July 19, 2016. That November, Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States when he defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Presidential Contender On June 16, 2015, Trump made his White House ambitions official when he announced his run for president on the Republican ticket for the 2016 elections, joining a crowded field of more than a dozen major candidates. "I am officially running for president of the United States," Trump said during his announcement at Trump Towers in New York City, "and we are going to make our country great again." He added with his signature bravado: "I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.” Upon Trump's announcement to run for president, his scathing, derogatory remarks about Mexicans and immigration caused NBC to sever business ties with him. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” NBC responded in a statement. "To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC."

The interview covers various topics: Ukraine, Syria, U.S. presidential election, U.S.-Russia cooperation: “I don’t believe that we are having another Cold War … we have much clearer common threats, like terrorism, like chaos in the Middle East … so this absolutely makes it necessary to reassess where we are and what kind of cooperative structure we need … President Trump is emphasizing the need to concentrate on U.S. interests … in this he certainly holds the same position as we do in Moscow that we don’t want to meddle in other people’s matters.” (Sergey Lavrov)
