What is the

By now, I am sure you have heard about the
impeachment trials going on. If you are not
quite sure what is going with them, here is the
There has supposedly been a whistleblower
complaint between Donald Trump and the
Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy,
which apparently includes a quid pro quo for
A quid pro quo is when a favor is granted or
expected in return for something. This is seen
as unconstitutional from the Democratic point
The impeachment process is simply a political
process and not a criminal process, which many
Americans get mixed up. In order to keep the
process going, articles or impeachments (charges
against the President) are drafted.
This starts at the House of Representatives,
where any members can carry on with proceeding
the trial. The Speaker of the House then is able
to determine whether or not to go on with the
inquiry into the impeachment.
In applying this situation to Trump, the
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, announced
the formal opening of the case on September 24,
2019. “Betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal
of our national security, and betrayal of the
integrity of our elections,” said Pelosi.
The House Intelligence Committee would need
to vote to approve the articles of impeachment
in order to proceed with the hearing. The
House currently holds 24 Democrats and 17
Republicans, and needs at least a vote from 21
to people to continue the trails.
After the impeachment articles are approved/
passed by the majority of the House, at least 50
percent of the House has to approve the articles
in order to get Trump impeached.
Next, the Senate comes in and nearly 67
percent (which is two thirds) of the Senate needs
to vote in favor for the removal of Trump. If the
67 percent does not agree on the removal, Trump
would still be considered impeached, but would
not be removed from office.

The well-known Let’s Play Gamer Markiplier
and his friend and former video editor Ethan
Nester have gotten together to form a unique
and quite bizarre YouTube channel, Unus Annus,
which launched Nov. 15.
Quickly taking the number one spot on
YouTube’s trending, the first video that
Unus Annus released begins with a timer,
365:00:00:00, which immediately begins to
tic down as Markiplier and Nester set up the
channels premise. “We live our lives taking
each second for granted but what would you do
if you knew how much time you had left. Unus
Annus ~ One Year,” the pair said. This quote
immediately makes the subject of the inevitable
approach of death. Memento Mori, the center of
the channels actions.
First and foremost, they have declared that
they will release one video each day for exactly
one year and after 365 days have passed, they
will delete the channel and everything on it,
connecting their theme of death to the end of the
entire channel and everything on it.
The journey that both Markiplier and Nester
invite viewers on is one that, according to their
own words, “the only certainty is its end.” As
of now they have released a seemingly jumbled
mess of weird, funny and slightly incongruous
videos that while at the surface have no
connection to each other but they all embody
the message that the two creators wanted to
get across: that your time is limited, the only
certainty is death and that you should make the
most of the time you are given.
