  1. ‘Green Party Rebels Against Jill Stein: “We Do Not Support The Recount” ‘

    “In a letter penned by Green Party Senate Candidate Margaret Flowers, and signed by dozens of prominent GPUS members, the Greens have rebelled against the farcical “recount effort” conducted by Jill Stein, saying “while we support electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein.”…

  2. So who supports crooked Hillary Clinton? ( answer: the stupid and ill-informed and the corrupt)

    ‘German funds given to Clinton Foundation should be returned, used to keep illegal migrants out’

    ….”Trump was right about Hillary being crooked, about the Clinton foundation being crooked, and I don’t think we’ve begun to see how much money was actually paid. So we know from the Department of the Environment and from this other German agency – millions of Euros – they got much more money than that from all different governments. The question is: why politics are corrupt. It is not unusual for politicians to be paid off. They thought they were buying – probably the most benign explanation – they thought they were buying preferment from the future Clinton administration. This proves what the Clinton Foundation actually was – a way to bribe Hillary Clinton and her aide Bill Clinton. …

    ‘Assange: Clinton & ISIS funded by same money…’

  3. Nooo Chooky, it must be a set up by the Alt Right surely?, the US Democrats (left) wouldn’t do that sort of thing….one of the best tweets I read online from USA after Trump elected was: The Democrats have never been so angry since the Republicans freed all their black slaves 🙂

    • lol… is a case of when is right wrong ?…or a wrong left ? or right is right ? or righting a wrong ? …or wronging a right?..or two wrongs dont make a right ?…or two rights dont make a left ?

  4. One of the best interviews of a professional journalist holding a politician to account.

    Kim Hill giving Social Development minister Anne Tolley arseholes over historical state care child abuse issue. Hill was spitting pure hell, fire and brimstone, scorching Tolley with every question.

    Well done RNZ. Brilliant stuff from Kim Hill, doing what the majority of msm journalists should be doing.

    Let’s hope Hill is let loose for election year to inverview politicians from all sides of the political spectrum. Should be something well worth listening to, particulary once she starts on Natz ministers!

    • no not always RT…Zero Hedge is also good (now this is quite scary and sickening …looks like a swamp monster/mobster has come to dinner

      ‘Trump Picks Former Goldman Banker Steven Mnuchin As Treasury Secretary’

      …but the pigman says:

      “Look on the bright side. Treasury Secretaries don’t do shit…..other than tell you how great the economy under their boss is. Let’s just call him Munchkin from Munchkinland…lol”

      and booboo says

      “Keep your friends close, your enemies closer”.

      anarchitect says

      “I wonder how many Trump supporters will now admit to buyer’s remorse.”

      tenpanhandle replies

      “same as it ever was. buyers remorse rearing its ugly head. But less remorse than if Hilary.”
