All posts criticising the media were spectacularly down-voted, and all posts criticising Mr Trump went to the top.
The prize goes to Vespucciland with a remarkable -86 for a rather innocuous remark. Well done Ves, I think that might be a record.
My comment went up until it hit about +15 – +20 and then it was kicked down again. This happened about two or three times and I ended up with a rather ordinary -9.
And all this, ironically on a story about “rigging”. I wonder if members of the news media, whose noses are, no doubt, seriously out of joint after being called out by Mr Trump, were invited to participate in this bit of petty vindictiveness.
If one wishes to gain an indication of the panic that is currently gripping the Clinton campaign, one need look no further than this little event. They also know who is really winning.
This is fun!
Well, for some of us, anyway…

You are overstating all that to the point of dishonesty. I’m disappointed in you.
Video has surfaced of Mrs Clinton’s press interviews as she and journalists returned to New York aboard Broomstick One.
Her Press Secretary, Nick Merrill is clearly seen feeding questions for Mrs Clinton to the reporters who happily follow his “suggestions”. They would never tolerate such “assistance” from the Trump campaign. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqYQ2OtggPw
The fact that most of the mainstream media has eschewed any semblance of integrity in order to assist their candidate has made Paul Watson very unhappy. Unhappy? No, he is angry – as can be seen in the following clip.
The mainstream media is barely bothering to conceal their considerable bias any more. It’s almost as if it’s now an ordinary and expected thing…

I’ve noticed an increasing number of trolls are trying to demoralise conservative voters. They pretend to be unenthusiastic about Mrs Clinton but state that the result is inevitable. They are trying to cause despair; trying to persuade these voters that the cause is lost and they should stay home on the 8th. Advisory note to you and others FYOG; it’s not working.
I predicted a couple of months ago that Mr Trump would win. Recent indications have caused me to change my view a little. I now think that he’ll win comfortably.
The latest (reliable) polls have him in the lead but still in a statistical tie. This is after he was some 5 points down a week ago (roughly averaging the polls). Rasmussen indicates that policy is now the most important thing for likely voters.
See if you can find something with which you disagree.
Trump supporters in comment sections and on social media are gaining in confidence and enthusiasm. Trolls are being rebutted more strongly than previously. Mrs Clinton is suffering badly. That’s not scientific, I know, but it provides colour.
Mr Trump is going to win.
Imagine the panic and disarray within the Clinton camp…
Are you a North or South island kiwi? I sure hope that you are correct.
Nzkiwi: Neither you nor I have a horse in this Kentucky Derby. Your comments/ reflections are a delight to read, and I have followed your posts for a long time, silently congratulating you on your insights and welcoming the fresh air that you inject into sometimes venomous discussions.
Thanks for the links, kiwi.
1st. You guys sound awful everytime someone comes on here to disagree with Trump and you call them all trolls. You sound no different than Obama Supporters who calls everyone racist for disagreeing.
2nd. I read the Contract for the voter. While I think Trump is on the right path, still not completely based on the constitution, how can you believe anything he says? You guys sound like blind followers every-time he changes his stance and you defend him without any criticism.
That's my issue with Trump. Does that make me a Troll? In your eyes, yes. In my eyes, no. I dont trust any of these clowns, and I distrust them even more when their followers never hold their feet to the fire for changing their minds.
Trump apologist make me not want to vote for Trump. Simply because you guys NEVER question his flip flops.
That will make Trump even bolder should he win...
Great news and i will be contributing myself on Nov 8th.
Forget polls, we have a 20 person focus group. What could possibly go wrong with a sample that big? LOL

Well, I’m an admirer of Mr Giuliani’s as well, Angry Blonde, but I think that an opportunity was missed.
Neither Mr Trump nor Mrs Clinton do funny well, and they have my sympathy because I don’t either. While I deeply appreciate this talent in others, I don’t seem to possess it.
This was an opportunity to mend a few fences and give the voter a little light relief from a pretty savage battle. They both disappointed. The best joke (Melania Trump’s speech anecdote) and the worst both went to Mr Trump. Mrs Clinton was bland.
To make myself feel better I reviewed previous speeches given at this event by Mr Obama and Mr Bush. They were genuinely funny. They gave the American people a brief opportunity to laugh at each other and at themselves despite deeply held political differences.
These two candidates missed the target by a country mile…
Difference between bush and obama is that they were owned..and would kiss azz.
Trump is hated by the gops and not owned. This doesnt surprise me...im actually surprised he got a few chuckles..to be honest.
As for gulliani....i am sure that was the last place he wanted to be. He is a trump guy and im sure daggers/glares were being shot at him right n left. Lol
Because shes an angry, vile, hateful b!tch
Nzkiwi imo Trump is fed up with all of the garbage. He doesn’t find it funny because he talks to real people and understands their pain. The only way he can get the word out regarding the corruption that is taking place in this country is by going to events such as this and using the media to make people aware of what is happening. Lord knows the media doesn’t give the corruption one minute of time on the so called news shows. This was an excellent opportunity to reach the people the msm media pour their propaganda out to daily with some cold hard truth. Trump hit it out of the ball park, people are sick of Washington humor!

I agree completely, Mike.
That made my eyes prickle with tears.

Is this the sexual version of letting people keep their guns but denying them ammunition?
" at least half of the American voting population would cheerfully beat him to a pulp…"
Yea sure, they will be blaming other people instead of themselves.
Heck no; he's building his viewing audience. They'll follow him anywhere and he can continue to divide the nation and ensure our government does not work. His destruction of the Republican party is just about complete. I laugh every time I hear them refer to him as a Conservative. That's insanity, right there.
Trump supporters have put so much faith in him that they would race to get in a Trump tower gas chachamber.
I have heard so many appoligist deify logic to the point that they have said that God sent Trump to save us. I'm talking bone head crazy nuts.
Beck mentioned it a week or two ago about how Hitler was revered in the German Church more then the word of God. Sounds crazy don't it?
What doesn't make sense is if he was remotely serious about getting elected, "to make America great again" he wouldn't have run the worst campaign ever. He ticks up a couple on the polls, he then does the very worst things imaginable after. He is a child in billionaire's clothing. He can build buildings with other people's money. He subsists on renting out his name all over the world. He's tanked many businesses. He has the class of a ditch digger (yes I know I just insulted diggers, my apologies). But I'm sure more than just me have more common sense and political smarts not to try and be the worst possible. The mistakes many pundits try and cover because he's "inexperienced" are impossible to make. Also he has gathered some pros around him. Either he's dumber than a stump and hired the very worst around him. Or he pays for them and then ignores every piece of solid advise they have. I'm not experienced at even running at the State level, but bloody hell, even I know I wouldn't have campaigned the way he has in a million years. If I ran I would want to win. No he's not a democrat plant. He obviously has some brains somewhere, so the only logical conclusion is he's trying to lose and doing a brilliant job at it. Why? The tv thing makes sense. But I've also thought about him assuring millions of trumpazoids become addicts of the new Trump Ktel line of crap and schlock. Buy your freeze dried Trump steaks, and if you do it in 5 minutes you'll get a set of fake gold knives free
I've noticed lately that I'm becoming a bit of a troll magnet...

He’ll be lucky if that’s all that happens to him as he has apparently broken California wire-tapping laws.
If Mr Trump makes a complaint, Mr Bush – and any others involved – may well spend some time with a libidinous room-mate…
From what I can tell, it is a multi-layer code designed to throw people off. Immediately, it is clear that this is a base-16 string of numbers, more commonly referred to as a Hex code. When you put the number into a converter to translate it, you get strange sequences of ASCII characters.
The first tweet contained the number 4bb96075acadc3d80b5ac872874c3037a386f4f595fe99e687439aabd0219809
That translates to: K¹`u¬ÃØZÈr‡L07£†ôõ•þ™æ‡Cš«Ð!˜
There are a lot of computer nerds who type messages like this in code, they call it encrypted Leet Speek. And it is unique to each individual, so it's impossible to unscramble without really knowing the mind of the person who wrote it. Sort of like Tolkien inventing an entire language for his elves in the Lord of the Rings books, it's unique to him, because he made it up.
Maybe he's messing with drones.....
They look like hash keys or something of the sort. Used to decrypt something.

I didn’t know that, Wigone. I hadn’t done any research on him what with everything else that’s going on. I’d like to, though.
Do you have a link to get me started?
 October 17, 2016 at 9:25am
Well, that clears that up.
But, unfortunately, you can’t just shut yourself off and wait for it all to be over. Sooner or later they will come for you. The Bureau of Land Management already is. True, they have been knocked back here and there, but they won’t give up. And jail awaits those who defy them. Or death.
I understand your desire to vote for a westerner – someone who is well aware of your particular industry and, no doubt, closely shares your values – but, in reality, Mr McMullin isn’t going to have much impact.
Stand together or fall divided…

Do you really want Gary Johnson to lead your nation?
October 17, 2016 at 8:32am
So, let me understand you correctly, Indaglia.
Mrs Clinton (in a leaked transcript) has said that it’s her “dream” that American borders should be opened and the citizens of South America should be able to enter at will, and you support this?
Is that right? You’re perfectly happy, living on the border as you say you do, to have 600 million non- Americans be able to enter you nation at any time that they please and stay for as long as they desire?
Forgive me if I doubt the veracity of your statement…
