Time Inc. is nearing an agreement to sell itself to the Meredith Corporation in a deal backed by Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers known for using their wealth and political connections to advance conservative causes.

Under the terms of the proposed deal, which could be announced as early as Monday morning, Meredith would pay between $19 and $20 a share for Time Inc., the publisher of Time, Sports Illustrated and People, according to a person involved in the deal process. The boards of Time Inc. and Meredith were expected to meet on Sunday evening to finalize the deal, the person said, although the talks could still fall apart.

Not good. Hoping that this deal falls through.

 

 

Well shit.

It’s unclear why the Koch brothers have backed the acquisition, the third time Meredith has attempted to buy Time Inc. Prior negotiations collapsed in 2013 after the companies failed to decide which magazines Meredith would buy. And earlier this year, Time Inc. said it didn’t want to sell itself.

But, as both The New York Times and Recode note, the Koch brothers are known for using their vast resources to advance conservative causes through political donations. The Kochs have never owned a media company before and it’s also unclear if they would wield any influence over either Meredith or Time Inc. under the terms of the deal. 

Meredith said in a news release the Koch brothers’ investment group “will have no influence on Meredith’s editorial or managerial operations” and said its “non-controlling” cash injection “underscores a strong belief in Meredith’s strength as a business operator.”

He warned that rising division and nativism in the country is reminiscent of the sleeping threat Hitler posed to the Weimar Republic. “That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s which, despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate,” warned Mr. Obama. Though the 44th president did not mention Donald Trump by name his warnings about xenophobia, racism, and nativism had a clear target. Recently Donald Trump sent a series of anti-muslim videos another example of his many attempts to encourage the worst traditions of American hate and fear.

John Dean is very concerned about this as well.

ICYMI, here’s an ominous warning: “If there’s any outrage left in the tank, use it now, because Trump has signaled exactly what he’s going to do.”

Good job, Alabama. It will take a while, but America will slowly recover from the damage that the GOP has inflicted.

 

This bodes very well for the upcoming midterm elections.

Found something more substantial in regards the possible Mueller firing.

 

Democratic congresswoman Jackie Speier mentions about him trying to pull this off on December 22nd. So the rumor is true.

 

 

 

Found another source backing this up via The Hill.

It's getting that much more real now... Eric Holder is calling for peaceful protest in case Trump fires Mueller.

That's bullshit. That stinks to me. Any bets that they'll have it set up in a way to prevent people from making any real useful petitions or ones that are against anything that their administration is trying to do?
