    Something in the water at Fox.

    Hannity has an outbreak of sanity and requires Alabama Republican Senate candidate to explain inconsisteces around his historical relationship with 14 year old girl.

    Then Shepard Smith strays from the party line by debunking Fox’s own line on the Hilary Clinton uranium story.

      Trouble in Rightie land, eh, Patzcuaro. I used to watch Fox all the time. However, I’ve moved on to the ”Jacinda Ardern Show.” Only Trumpy can trump that show.

  2. How Chinese brainwashing is done. Note the similarity with unconscious bias training, sensitivity training and other social justice warrior tactics.

    Someone is going to have to take responsibility for Joe Bloggs – he’ll be hyperventilating over this:

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators have issued a subpoena to President Trump’s election campaign for documents related to Russia, according to a new report.

    The Wall Street Journal reports that Mueller’s team issued the subpoena in mid-October, requesting documents and emails from over a dozen top campaign officials that include several keywords related to Russia.

    The subpoena marks the first time Trump’s campaign has been ordered to turn over information to Mueller’s investigation. Mueller has previously subpoenaed former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and several of his associates, as well as subpoenaing several banks to obtain Manafort’s financial records.

    Today is D-Day as the self imposed deadline for coalition talks arrive. Merkel and potential coalition partners have been struggling to come to an agreeement and were reportedly meeting late into last night to try and get some movement. They have given themselves until this morning to say whether they can form a Government or not.

    If no agreement has been reached Germany may have to go to the polls again, which may result to an internal challenge to Merkel’s leadership.

    The sticking point is reportedly around immigration capping with one side saying it has to happen and the Greens against it.
