In this article, the writer, Courtney Tanner comes to state that many residents are furious about how Utah's republicans are refusing to investigate Trumps potential conflicts of interest. They presented themselves at a town hall and many were not allowed to enter the town hall.

In this article, the writer, Drew Wilder, comes to talk about how many people have spoken out their disagreement regarding the actions that David Brat was taking. While this was happening State Senator Amanda Chase was threatening to kick them out. This comes to illustrate the ignorance that people in either congress or the government in general can be ignorant towards the people even when they try and oppose what people who are in charge of making the laws or passing them have executed. Instead they attempt to threaten them in order to try and control them such as Amanda Chase did when she threatened to kick anyone out who had an opinion opposing the one from David Brat.
Ever since Donald Trump had taken over the presidency and made some changes that some have believed were unjust and has caused them to become upset, but now they have now risen up and petitioned what they believe is unfair. They have used their first amendment right to stand up for their rights and claim their beliefs. The people are encouraged to always use their rights, such as the first amendment, where they can petition the government. This amendment helps the people who have a different opinion from majority because they are able to use their rights to oppose the government. The statement that can be seen in this article would be that people feel the need to take action in some way in order to be heard and using their first amendment right such as petitioning the government allows them to feel enabled to do something.
The author from this article, John W Whitehead, wants to give an opinion on the government or anyone with authority that disapproves what someone is doing regarding petitioning the government, will attempt to extinguish their petition and disapproval of the actions that the government might be taking. This gives a point of view regarding petitioning the government in the first amendment. The article talks about how the government responds at times when it comes to people petitioning against the government and this article also provides real life examples of people petitioning the government. In the example John W Whitehead talks about how Harold Hodge silently stood in front of the Supreme Court with a sign about unjust deaths that are permitted by the government and then he was confronted by a police officer from the Supreme Court and told Harold her was violating a law regarding what he was doing. The point of this article would be that Mr. Whitehead wants to prove how the government could oppose people's efforts to try and make a change and instead they try to control their attempts by refusing to listen or prohibiting them form doing so.
