by Richard Cameron   Trump’s media cartel and others in Republican ranks are already speculating that the Special Counsel’s report turned in to the Justice Department on Friday, will not contain specific details about Donald Trump’s participation in a conspiracy with Russian operatives to impact the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

by Richard Cameron The government shutdown continues apace heading into the New Year, spurred on by Donald Trump’s insistence on $5 billion for the border wall he based most of his premise as a candidate for the presidency.  During the campaign, Trump made innumerable pledges about the wall.

The Murdochs Dismiss Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly – The Spin Stops Permanently

By Dani Graham Sexual harassment scandals have changed the face of Fox News after taking down its founder and CEO, Roger Ailes and now it’s top-rated host, Bill O’Reilly. It was 9 months ago when a former host of the network, Gretchen Carlson, bravely decided to stand up and speak out when she filed suit against Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. Her courage to share her story opened the floodgates by empowering a multitude of women to come forward with their own experiences. Once Ailes resigned Fox vowed to continue…
