"What if Trump loses but won't concede? How a constitutional crisis would play out" is an article published by the Los Angeles Times and written by Evan Halper, Eli Stokols, and David G. Savage. The article revolves around a claim that president Donald Trump has recently made claiming that if he were to lose this upcoming election, that he would refuse to leave office and continue his presidency regardless. If Trump were to follow through with these childish plans and refuse to leave, the results, although quick, could prove to be disastrous and fatal. The text states that, "No law allows the president to authorize such force for domestic use, but Trump’s recent deployment of the National Guard to clear protesters outside the White House has raised concerns about how he would respond to post election protests". Different military commands and forces could force Trump out of Office eventually but the immediate acts after will be dangerous. Unless Trump were to take his refusal to leave presidency to heart and form a coup of his own while starting his own country, dixieland-style, then we do not have much to fear aside from the short term chaos following the election.

The main idea is the real question about Breonna Taylor's death. One man out of 3 was charged with 3 counts of endangerment of firing into Breonna Taylor's neighbors home not even her home. We want to point out the fact that these white police officers are not even being charged for Breonna's death like they should be. According to the last few sentences in the article, it shares people have been shoot and killed all over Louisville and many others states, but what is the government doing to stop these killings and to treat everyone equally and with respect.

Ruth Bader Ginsiburg,she pass away at 87 and this took place on Sept 18,2020. It took place at her own house. It occurs because of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer.This is going to impact the future is by the president electing a judge that represents their house. So this might affect the future because then the president might just have another person to pass the laws the president wants.
