    On Friday, the Huffington Post reported FOX News host Eric Bolling sent photos of his genitalia to multiple female co-workers. FOX News suspended Bolling on Saturday and has launched a full investigation into the matter. One of the accusers is a left-wing anti-Trump professor named Caroline Heldman.
    Suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling’s first public accuser is a major left-wing activist who held a protest sign at President Trump’s inauguration accusing the president of being a rapist.

    Caroline Heldman, an Occidental College professor who appeared on Fox News, reportedly “filed a sexual harassment complaint just hours before Fox News announced O’Reilly’s departure,” according to People magazine.

    Law Firm Investigating Bolling Sexting Scandal Was Hillary Clinton Fundraiser, Employs Former Obama Officials

    The firm, Paul, Weiss, has long been tied to the Clinton family, with its employees donating hundreds of thousands to its political campaigns and later cashing in on political appointments in the government.

    The Nov. 19 fundraiser, which is being billed as a “conversation with Hillary,” is currently being promoted on the Democratic presidential candidate’s website and costs attendees $2,700 per ticket.
    Paul Weiss donated $271, 970 to Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign!

    Chuck Todd Says The Media Is Above The Law: “I Look Forward To Ignoring” Any DOJ Subpoena

    The media believes that they are above the law. And Chuck’s vocal position on this sure makes it sound like he’s scared. What’s he got to hide?

    Excerpted From The Hill: NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd said on Friday that he would ignore any subpoena the Department of Justice issues him if the agency pursues media in its investigation of leaks.

    “If DoJ media source threat is real (I assume it’s not; just a show presser to please WH) then I look forward to ignoring that subpoena,” Todd wrote to his 1.79 million followers.

    Top McMaster Ally Bill Kristol Plotting to Primary, Oust Trump: Must ‘Take One Shot’ at Removing POTUS

    “We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism,” Kristol told the liberal Times reporters.

    On Twitter, Kristol, the limelight-seeking saboteur, seemed proud that he was again quoted in a legacy media paper, tweeting out the article and saying the “task in 2020” is to oust Trump. He even suggested Never Trumpers should rebrand themselves as “liberals.”

    Conservative Group Aims To Defund Big Labor Ahead Of 2018 Midterms

    The Olympia-based Freedom Foundation scored a significant win last month when the Washington attorney general’s office filed a lawsuit against the local SEIU affiliate for failing to disclose $5 million in donations. Now, they’re expanding the fight against Big Labor ahead of the 2018 midterms. We all know labor unions amass significant campaign war chests for elections. Freedom Foundation is trying to lighten the load by curbing union dues from going into the campaign coffers. Unions almost exclusively support Democrats, despite 40 percent of members having conservative political views.

    Kredo: The Number of People Unmasked By Samantha Power is ‘Unprecedented’

    Power is believed to have made “hundreds” of unmasking requests to “identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources who said the behavior is unprecedented for an official in her position,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.

    Hannity asked Kredo how Power would ever have the authority to make the unmasking requests, and then asked whether this has ever happened previously to his knowledge.

    Reports: Robert Mueller Digging into Don Jr. with Grand Jury

    The report claims the grand jury has been in operation in Washington, DC for several weeks, although it does not provide a source for this information. As the article acknowledges, grand jury proceedings are typically sealed and participation is kept secret.

    The grand jury discussed is a different one from the Alexandria, Virginia one impaneled to investigate former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn earlier this year.
    The exact targets of Mueller’s Russia grand jury were not clear from the Journal’s report but Reuters followed up the report with an afternoon tweet claiming subpoenas were issued relating to Donald Trump Jr.’s meetings with a Russian attorney last year. That meeting and the emails relating to it were the topic of wide media focus last month.

    The Likely Road Ahead for the Mueller Investigation

    It does not include searching through Donald Trump’s entire history to find any crime he may have ever committed so he can recommend federal criminal prosecution. If what he finds is beyond the statute of limitations, it can be used politically by Democrats as they try their hand at impeachment.

    John Hinderaker said of Mueller:

    “I conclude that Mueller is not discharging his office of special counsel in good faith, but rather is acting as an agent of those who are trying to destroy or impede the Trump administration, and should be fired. Of course, whether President Trump thinks firing Mueller is politically viable is a separate question.

    The future of the Democratic Party could be written in upcoming gubernatorial races

    Democrats plan to make an issue of Trump in the state races. They also hope to see more intraparty turmoil over allegiance to the president in Republican gubernatorial primaries. That was a feature of the Virginia GOP primary earlier this year.

    Even if there are favorable conditions for the Democrats, it is difficult to overstate the significance of these 2018 contests for their longer-term implications for the party.

    AP Only Vaguely Refers to UAW-Chrysler Scandal in Covering Union’s Nissan-Mississippi Loss

    On Friday, the United Auto Workers failed in yet another attempt to organize an auto plant in the South. This time it was a Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi. Unlike in the 2014, when workers at a Chattanooga, Tennessee Volkswagen plant narrowly rejected the union, Friday’s result was a 62 percent to 38 percent shellacking.

    Coverage of the UAW’s defeat at the Associated Press overnight was reasonably measured, with one exception: a barely mentioned and completely unexplained Fiat Chrysler-UAW corruption scandal in Metro Detroit which influenced the voting.

    On Friday, anti-Trump activist film producer Michael Moore tweeted that Trump would be “a malignant narcissist” if he didn’t agree to resign in exchange for Democrats dropping their probe into potential Russian interference in U.S. election.

    At least one trannie agrees with President Trump’s decision to bar transgenders from military service. Zhe correctly points out that trannies are “medically reliant”, which disqualifies them every bit as much as it does like diabetics and asthmatics.
