Republican #TaxScam is delayed, but not dead. We are on the brink of significant changes to American society, folks. If the GOP gets this, they also get legal status for fetuses and allow churches to become arms of conservative politicians. Rubio admits that once #TaxScam is passed Republicans are coming for Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare. Net Neutrality scheduled to be destroyed on December 14 thanks to former Verizon lawyer turned FCC chair, Ajit Pai. Fight for the Future, Demand Progress, and Free Press Action Fund calling for protests at Verizon stores around the country on December 7. Go to VerizonProtests.com for an action near you.

Former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn gets charged with making false statements, lying to the FBI. Does this mean that Flynn is now cooperating? Don Blankenship, Former CEO of Massey Energy and criminally responsible for the deaths of 29 miners at the Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia, now running for U.S. Senate for that state against Joe Manchin. And, Roy Moore is gaining ground in Alabama. That right, the child predator may actually make it to the Senate. Looks like Rex Tillerson - aka Wayne Tracker - is out at the head of the state department. Bring in the deep state. This follows reports that Tillerson is doing an excellent job of gutting the state department as more senior staffers leave or are forced out. Matt Lauer’s out at NBC and now wants $30 million. And Maleficent pays a special visit to the White House to decorate for the holidays. Or was it the Ice Queen? Depends on the time of day I guess.

The New York Times was at the center of a major controversy surrounding their profile of a white nationalist. Sean and I go deep into the issues surrounding both the article and the controversy. And Turning Point USA - an astroturfed, billionaire-backed, right-wing organization begins showing up on Pennsylvania college campuses. Kudos to some awesome reporting form a student journalist at IUP. Wonder who’s going to this year’s Turning Point USA Student Action Summit at the end of the semester? Gorka will be there! Sean gives us the lowdown on last week’s Capitol action by March on Harrisburg.

And it’s beer holiday time! Free Will have a tent at tomorrow’s Perkasie tree lighting. Saucony Creek wins with their first crowler event. New beers out from Pizza Boy as the holiday season gets underway.
