Senate passes resolution to avoid government shutdown - but it has no funding for a border wall. Trump appears prepared to sign legislation, caving on initial stance that he would shut government down if wall was not funded. Political fallout. Democrats conduct “secret research” during last year’s Alabama Senate election. This is taken seriously is absolutely mind-blowing. Mimicking techniques they learned from Russia’s “meddling” in 2016 race - but not to influence the election. Oh no: this was purely for science. How I wish more people would think for themselves. Remember CrashTheTeaParty.com (now defunct) & Jason Levin?
