    JM you might enjoy reading about the reality of US politics, without the leftist spin in everything you read in Australia, nor the fake news issued by clickbait sites like news.com.au

    I recommend www.manhattancontrarian.com

    I kept hearing that there would be “massive” rallies against me in the UK, but it was quite the opposite. The big crowds, which the Corrupt Media hates to show, were those that gathered in support of the USA and me. They were big & enthusiastic as opposed to the organized flops!

    You couldn’t be more wrong.

    What we are fed in the pathetic excuse for mainstream media and the reality on the ground in the US are poles apart.
    He’ll romp it in for a second term, thank goodness.

    Of course I do. Murdoch is very astute in knowing his audience and where ratings & circulation are to be found, he has little concern for politics. He succeeds because most other media organizations are dominated by left bias and ignore the silent majority, which reflects in their results.

    News.com is a click-bait site aimed at the "low information" audience, so it is skewed to the left.

    That is true. Mind you, Trump is still nowhere near the popularity of Hawke at his peak......another visionary. (like Trump, not Hitler)

    Hitler never won a democratic election.

    The NSDA (NAZI) party got 33% of votes, Hitler took power by other means. Once in power, those rallies were stage managed to create the illusion of mass crowds, including using soldiers and people bussed in. I lived in Germany, my business partner was 14 at the end of the war, up to 1943 his school was regularly called out to cheer for visiting politicians, under threat of severe retribution. After that, he and his fellow students were manning anti-aircraft guns every night.

    Interesting footnote. One month before the end of the war, he was conscripted into the German navy, as a submariner. Life expectancy was one week. So he jumped off the train that was taking him to the North Atlantic coast and walked west towards the advancing Allies, was rescued by American troops. If he'd been caught by the Gestapo, he would have been hung on the spot. Imagine your 14 year old child doing that.

    Can’t imagine any 14 year old child having to do that. Awful. Makes me think of that book, “I am David” by Anne Holm.

    Not being ridiculous at all. Making an observation. I found Ian’s comments quite interesting.

    I know you don’t like your echo chamber of Trump-love being disturbed though. Poor Aircon

    My partner's father in law had fought in and survived WW1. You'd think a grateful nation would think that was enough. But as a 45 year old he was conscripted again in 1941 and sent to the Russian front, ending up in Stalingrad, where he was eventually captured by the Russians. After parading the captured troops through Moscow, they sent them to slave labour camps in Siberia, he wasn't released until 1956, died soon after.

    I'm not defending Germany, just pointing out that many had no choice.

    But despite that, the country was swept up in the rhetoric and the idea that that they'd all be 'great' again... sound familiar? And anyone who dared point out the emperor's lack of clothes was despatched.

    Ramussen polls Republicans generally so 50% of your own team is hardly stellar performance.

    “Someone should call Obama up. The Obama Administration spied on a rival presidential campaign using Federal Agencies. I mean, that seems like a headline to me?” @TuckerCarlson It will all start coming out, and the Witch Hunt will end. Presidential Harassment!
