Do You Follow US Politics?


The 2020 US election is on November 3rd and it’s a pretty important one. Even in Australia news outlets are constantly updating audiences on who is out in front and what’s happening but do Aussies really care? Have you been following the election campaigns? Do you pay attention to US politics?

    Yes I do, because when I left school I wanted to go live in America. Then I studied their political practices and this changed my mind, as their whole system is corrupt. Donald Trump has been an excellent example of that which is how he got elected in the first place, helped by his corrupt wealthy mates. Now when the system legitimately elects someone else because they are sick of his bullshit, he starts screaming "Corruption" of which he is an expert! I can't wait until he leaves the White House and the lawsuits against him all get file. (A sitting President cannot be sued whilst he is in the White House, but when he leaves it is "open slather".) In legal firms all over America lawyers must be sweating bricks waiting for January.

    I read the 30 Great Things Trump has done. And not very impressed with that list. From the list of 30 I would only rate about three as having any real merit. If this list is so Great then they will stand the test of time. In two years I wonder how many of the 30 Great Things will still be in effect.

He needs to do the right thing and come out and tell everyone that has voted for him say thanks to America for allowing him to have had the opportunity to be there president give a great speech .. Maybe only then will he not go down in history for being the worst president ever come on Trump do the right thing for once..

    Thank God our voting system in Australia, though not perfect, is relatively trust worthy. The electors will decide the result, not the polls. the media, the 'opportunity' for fraud. or BIG TECH!

    It's quite clear that Biden won the elections. Personally even in 2008 when he was vice, I always saw the potential in him to be president. When all the dust settles I hope and know that Americans and the world, will finally see what a remarkable leader he is. He has made it very clear that now it doesn't matter who did and who didn't vote for him. He has promised to be for all, and that's the best thing a leader could ever do. He has been in the game for over 40yrs, I have great confidence in him, and so do 74million othes.

    If people like you just for once, dropped your blinding bias and examined what Trump DID achieve despite EVERYTHING, you might have a more 'balanced' view. I am NOT a TRUMP supporter, but I KNOW he did more for EVERY AMERICAN in 3 years than Obama and Biden did in 8! We do however, agree on the flake, fake Morrison. though for probably entirely different reasons.

    Yes I have been following Trump's progress since he announced his intention to run for president. After review of his policies, I hoped that he would win. He did win ! I hoped he would upset the establishment and get rid of a lot of the left policies about limiting freedom of speech and give the climate change lobby a big kick in the pants. He had a go at them, but he was under fire from day one by the Democrats who had expected to win. The democrats policy consisted of trying to get rid of Trump without any interest in the US economy. Trump has been one of the best presidents for many years and his attempt to make America great again almost succeeded until Covid-19 arrived. The future of the US economy and security environment looks bleak now that the socialist democrats will be trying to implement their unrealistic policies. I hope that the republicans can get their act together by the next election cycle.

    There is clearly misinformation about the US election results in some of the comments on here. Trump’s lawyers have lost about 20 legal cases and won Zero. As everyday passes the Courts have rejected the unproven claims of electoral fraud for want of evidence. lawyers acting for Trump have abandoned ship! This is at the same time that Trump is milking his supporters to support a legal proceedings fighting fund where half of the money goes to pay off a supposed billionaire’s campaign debts. If he is a billionaire why does he need to raise money to pay off his campaign debts? Probably because he is just a “straw man” of no substance and a pathological liar and fraud thrown in on top of his narcissism. There is a saying “Fools and their money are easily parted”... Perhaps that is the reason he loves the uneducated! The sooner Trump goes into prison with all his outstanding g lawsuits delayed whilst he was President the better place the world will be. He wasn’t running for President, he was running to stay out of prison and he will probably try to pardon himself but they will still lock him up on State Crimes.

    Anyone thinking that the election was rigged against Trump with ballot fraud is oblivious to facts. If the Democrats rigged the election with ballot fraud why did they lose seats in the House and not rig the outcome in the Senate where the balance of power will now be determined in two Special Senate Elections in Georgia on 5 January 2021. I also said long before Nov 3, Trump would not go quietly when he lost the People’s Vote & would burn the place down on his way out. This is exactly what has happening! He is a wannabe dictator who is damaging Democracy with his behaviour and he is undermining the Constitution he swore to uphold!

Through Q he was able to be one of the few to be “subliminally brainwashed” OUT of the justice system. I don’t even know how to begin to describe it.... but they took some of my blood today at the hospital. I’ve never had COVID and they didn’t even ask me to keep my mask on.

    The first three sentences are ignorantly defamatory and denigrating to the American people, who are actually very noble, brave and more anti-war than you realize. Perhaps you're confusing them with the Deep State who have run that country for far too long? I agree with the closing four sentences, but would have chosen much different wording.

    I find it hard to believe that anyone still follows Trump will his lies and conspiracy theories. If the situation ends up in the Supreme Court, it will be interesting to see whether the judges Trump has loaded this court with will vote in his favour or follow the law. If Trump wins, it will be the end of any pretence of democracy in America. But then it hasn't been a democracy for years; like Australia it is a Plutocracy.

    It's hard to believe so many prefer to follow what the Mass Media propaganda outlets say, rather than getting their information from the source. Instead of speculating whether the situation ends up in court, why not look at what's already going on in the court, in SCOTUS? Why not follow the attorneys on twitter, for example? Why not follow the news posted on the President's own website to see what's Actually happening and what has been submitted to the court? The judges are presently aligned 50-50. It will be interesting to see if they ignore the hundreds of sworn affidavits, whistle-blower testimonies, video evidence, audio evidence, etc, etc from Both sides on Democrats election fraud. It won't matter if they do. Corrupt judges will be fired and charged with Willful Ignorance. The only thing that will matter is timing as to which method is deployed. The ruling in his favour will follow the law and the constitution and the wishes of the vast majority of US registered legal voters. When Trump wins, the Republic will be preserved, as will the constitutional rights of the people, as will election integrity everywhere. America never once pretended to be a "democracy". The Founding Fathers made it absolutely clear that the USA was designed to be a Republic, being far superior to any such democracy.

    Yes, Biden did win... a lifetime in jail for him, his family and everyone who supported him or funded him and All of his and his family's assets seized by Treasury, along with those of every Mayor, Governor, the Mass Media and Social Media Channels who censored any pro-Trump conversation, CIA, FBI, Dems, etc, etc. More than enough to wipe out their National Debt. Biden cannot run for office. It is illegal. You will see. The Dems didn't win - not by a long shot. Trump's going through the courts right now. If they delay before the Electoral College sits on December 14 this year, then he will activate the Fourteenth Amendment and announce the Insurrection Act for a military arrest of every crim on the long, long list. He won't have to send in the military... 20000 of them in twelve swing States are already in place and waiting for orders. There's no way Trump can lose now.

Once that long list of perpetual criminals and criminal corporations and networks are safely behind bars, that country will be the Shining Light of the whole world that everyone who loves truth and justice will look up to for generations to come. Things will be much better next year. Trump didn't have to do what he's doing on our behalf, for which even we down here owe him 'a debt of gratitude' for what he has done and is about to do. So in some respects, he has been made to look like an idiot in front of an agenda-ridden mass media who is controlled by the richest 1%. Trump and his family are independently wealthy (not 'rich', but actually Wealthy - learn the difference), and work damn hard for humanity. There's so me we think we know, but don't.

    We'll just see if they get away with it. I'm not giving up. The whole rotten lot will be in jail very, very soon. Video footage today and yesterday shows a fly-over in the USA of 1000+ military aircraft says that high-level arrests are now taking place. You're about to watch or read your last piece of Mass Media lies and propaganda - that lot will all be jailed for life soon. The CIA, FBI, dems and the whole swamp will be drained soon - jailed for life at a minimum. Check the tweets of every attorney on the case, reporting around the clock. Huge developments every day. This is an enormous operation with US military busting fortresses worldwide (just broke Germany and Spain for Foreign Interference in US Elections there). Abrams tanks are awesome at blowing fortresses apart - but mostly just for threatening and demonstrating. Trump actually won an historic landslide victory. Upwards of 6.5 million votes were switched just by software in voting machines. The Will of the people overwhelmingly favours Trump. When the scope and variety of means to steal huge numbers of votes is revealed, you will be astounded. The results will ultimately renew your faith in justice and Democracy.

    Well, no... news outlets in Oz are not constantly updating us on who is out in front and what's happening - for a reason. They follow an agenda. But let's not go into that now - you'll find out later. Trump's latest tweet is very important. You also need to watch his personal lawyer as well as his attorney. He comments on a summary of the analysis of the Raw Vote Log Transaction Data, which is Publicly Available right now and has been analysed by a great number of individuals from all over the world using multiple different systems. President Trump tweets, "Report: Domain deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide. Data analysis finds 221000 Pennsylvania votes switched from President Trump to Biden. 941000 Trump votes deleted. States using Dominion voting systems switched 435000 votes from Trump to Biden." Isn't it 'interesting' how no Biden votes were deleted at all and no votes were switched from Biden to Trump? At the same time, SCOTUS has seen hundreds of eyewitnesses and whistle-blowers testify under oath and cite sworn affidavits of a huge variety of massive counts of election fraud. The states have also acted illegally, as have their state supreme courts. Such things come to light as: bullying of vote counters by their supervisors to alter vote counts, vote machine tampering, huge fake ballot dumps, ballots being marked as being 'received' before being marked as 'sent', fake burst water pipe to delay counting while fake ballots were dumped into the count, illegal back-dating, in just one county 234 sworn affidavits admitted to court detailing poll centre fraud, double-voting fraud, 60% of one poll worker's count had the same signature, ink analysis proves multiple forgeries, ballots that have no registered voter record went through, 40% manual override signature verification in Nevada - making >half their votes invalid, of course the graveyard vote... the very un-funny thing is that the Dems did the same to rig the mid-term election to gain control of the House in 2018 and even did the same thing (twice!) to stop Bernie Sanders from getting in and make Joe (whom nobody liked at all) - win instead! The result is that every single vote will get audited before a re-count. Trump's lawyers need only prove these claims by a preponderance of evidence and not "beyond all reasonable doubt" . Joe Biden went on National TV before the election to say that Democrats had built the biggest 'voter fraud' operation in history. Not Wrong! This will all go Public within days or weeks.

    All the evidence is in front of the Supreme Court (SCOTUS). The Mass Media will not show you any evidence as they falsely called a Joe victory, just like they falsely called a Gore victory back in December 14, 2000. Totally biased and not to be trusted with any evidence carefully gathered by the US Military and stored on the Blockchain for all time reference. Fake news was created only by the same lying, agenda-ridden owned media that has been proven to consistently lie against humanity for generations. Biggest Scandal in Human History.

    Oh no you don't. Ivanka says to hold the line... they stood there in the snow holding theirs for hours and we're holding onto the same hope here. Trump's still there and not going anywhere. Joe hasn't claimed victory. Not one state has returned certified results that Joe won in Any state. Trump hasn't conceded. US elections take longer than this to decide. How long have you followed US politics? Check the 2000 election of Bush vs Gore and watch the Mass Media champion Gore all the way to December 14 when Bush won! The recount has started and the legal proceedings and mass arrests started. The Deep State Trump hater Mark Esper was fired as Defense Secretary. Already, they have reported a total of just over 500000 fake ballots that all went to Joe in a lump and were counted! Trump has sent thousands of lawyers in to the Supreme Court and file hundreds of legitimate cases from across the nation. If even a handful succeed, he will announce an insurrection and activate the fourteenth amendment (which is Not Marshall Law!). If it comes to this, the entire Deep State, CIA, FBI, Dems and others - including mayors, governors, top doctors, All of the Big Tech CEO's - will be exposed and publicly trialled and jailed for years and years until America is free. If not, Trump will keep the cases going until January 19, 2021 when Pelosi will be declared President (unless she's in jail for life by then), for one month maximum if the issue of fraud and a re-do or re-count hasn't materialized. If it continues unresolved, the courts will kick this to Congress who decide who will be President. Congress is controlled easily by Republicans who will elect Trump as President. This will be done on a "one vote per state" basis (as opposed to the Electoral College Vote). There is no way he can lose. 20000 National Guard troops in twelve swing states currently says so. Vote Fraud in Any country undermines real democracy in every country. This goes far above politics. It is Law - and a Military Sting Operation was needed to enforce this. This is not another trick of Trump's, but a military operation due to previous Dems vote frauds and was organised in May 2018 by the DoD. Watch the next 70 days closely... there will be civil war when Dems supporters go absolutely crazy with automatic guns, RPG's, bombs, etc.

    Not any more. Seems like Australia is the only "TRUE" Democracy left in this crazy world. Shame America, you have just become one of those 'tin-pot' regimes you have been complaining about for years. Even "one" false vote is wrong, even the mere implication of one false vote is wrong. Since when has the lives and livelihood of millions of honest and hard working people just become a 'plaything' for the rich and careless.

    I'm surprised by the number of members who believe Australia is a democracy. We are not. We never were designed to be from the outset. By definition, a democracy is a society whose citizens are sovereign and control government. We are neither! If our citizens are sovereign, the government must Not compel us to vote, like it does. Our government is not controlled by us, but by one foreign vote, as our recent history proves. I hope you can remember. If not, just look at Victoria's handling of COVID19 and if you protest, you are jailed and fined, even if heavily pregnant. West Australia has banned peaceful protests. Just one glance at the daily news will show this isn't a democracy. According to international opinion, we're the most over-represented people on earth, but how is that possible when our two-party duopoly is entirely unrepresentative of our population? In 2006, the Australian Bureau of Statistics recorded Total party membership at just 1.3% of the adult population and falling each year. What more solid proof do you need that the three parties don't represent us? We don't believe in them! To be properly democratic, every ballot needs to come with a box at the bottom to provide the voter with an option of "none of these candidates fit my requirements" and even another one which states "I do not support compulsory voting". The Founding Fathers, on the other hand, found that the only true democracy is a Republic and cannot be otherwise. You're lucky this is coming from an Aussie - the Americans won't be anywhere near as tolerant!

    Since I was born in the USA until the age of 33 before moving to Australia I have usually kept up on what is happening regarding the Presidential elections. I am so disgusted with President Trump and making a mockery of this election by acting like a brat throwing a tantrum again and again until he gets his way. Not the democratic way and he is just making a fool of himself. Because of his denial of himself and all the rest of the population not wearing masks, not social distancing, not encourage people to self isolate many have died and to those families who have lost loved ones I feel so sorry when they sit down to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas there would be empty chairs where their dead loved ones would have sat and President Trump just does not care at all.

    Sorry. These points you raise don't ring true. I couldn't find that word in the dictionary, either. Check the statistics on the race votes Trump got... far better than any other Republican candidate in living memory. The military installed Trump into the presidency and they are working Very closely together on this Military Operation, so that scenario of being marched out of the White House by the National Guard cannot play out. 20000 of them are now in twelve key swing states carrying out a proper re-count. Trump passed multiple tests on his 'sanity', senility and IQ level early in his Presidency, if you will recall. The Deep State via the Dems paid forty million dollars of taxpayers money over four years while he was in office to try him for tax evasion among numerous other charges - all of them proven false. Donald Trump fronted this election as Not Guilty of every charge. Quite the opposite for the Biden crime family and Democrat Crime Syndicate who will shortly be exposed for what they have always done. Crime begets crime and criminals never fail to repeat being criminals while ever they roam free.

    Trump just fired known Deep State Defense Secretary Mark Esper who has always opposed Trump. Christopher Miller, the Director of the National Counter-Terrorism Center, is his replacement. This means one of two things (or both!) are about to start. Watch also for the firing of the heads of the FBI, the CIA and possibly Bill Barr. President Trump may shortly invoke The Insurrection Act whereby Big Tech info censorship and dems vote fraud will be declared as 'acts of rebellion against the USA' and thousands of high-level arrests of these will take place. President Trump may also activate Section Two of The Fourteenth Amendment whereby Electoral College votes will be stripped from all states involved in acts of rebellion against the USA. The current estimation is that Trump gets 300 electoral college votes - an easy win. This is a military operation organised since May 2018 because dems voter fraud has been a big issue for decades now. What this means for you and me is that if either of these play out, the USA will be blacked out for ten days - no internet. If you want to order online from there or from anywhere ported through there or from any US owned company HQ, you need to get your last orders and / or donations in very quickly. Also, if any of you have supported the Dems or any Big Tech organisation or any known terrorist organisation, like Antifa, BLM, etc, you may be extradited to the USA and be arrested and trialled under their laws for giving aid or comfort to enemies of the US people. Our government will not protect you.

    Not so. He's still there and not going anywhere. Joe hasn't claimed victory. Not one state has certified that Joe won in any state. Trump hasn't conceded. No US election has ever been decided this fast. How long have you followed US politics? Look, I'll spell it out for you to save you looking it up. On Tuesday, our time, the recount starts and the legal proceedings and mass arrests start. Already, they have reported a total of just over 450000 fake ballots that all went to Joe in a lump and were counted! Here's the timeline of events, so please don't follow your usual controlled media sources and parrot them. Firstly, Trump will send thousands of lawyers in to the Supreme Court and file hundreds of legitimate cases from across the nation. If even a handful succeed, he will announce an insurrection and activate the fourteenth amendment (which is Not Marshall Law!). If it comes to this, the entire Deep State, CIA, FBI, Dems and others - including mayors, governors, top doctors, All of the Big Tech CEO's - will be exposed and publicly trialled for years and years until America is free. If not, Trump will keep the cases going until January 19, 2021 when Pelosi will be declared President for one month maximum if the issue of fraud and a re-do or re-count hasn't materialized. If it continues unresolved, the decision of who will be President comes down to the House of Representatives, which is controlled by 63 Republicans to 24 Democrats who will elect Trump as President. There is no way he can lose. 20000 National Guard troops in twelve swing states currently says so. Vote Fraud in Any country undermines real democracy in every country. This goes far above politics.

    Yes it has been declared... by the Mass Media and nobody else! Not so fast. You may be able to watch all the controlled and 'owned' 'free' press, but you know very little about US law or even US politics. The mass media are all controlled by the Deep State, who also control the Dems. Their reporting has always been heavily biased against Trump, who has fought legal battles for four years whilst president against the most stupid rubbish ever dreamed up by the CIA, FBI, Deep State, Dems and many others who have spent over 40 million US dollars of Taxpayers money, not theirs, but have failed and Trump is innocent of every charge. The Russia Hoax failed, as did China collusion. In fact, it was shown Joe Biden, his family, nearly all dems and many others that the media think so highly of are nothing more than Satan-worshipping Pedophiles who have committed an endless trail of public and private crimes over their entire lives. However, regarding the election, it is far from over - even if there was no election fraud carried out and the President conceded. How many elections have you observed in the USA? This is not some cheap trick of Trump's, but there were multiple counts of different types of election fraud happening across multiple states. Federal Observers were locked out when the count was done in some states. This is the equivalent of, say, Tasmania telling the Australian Electoral Commission officials to stay locked outside when the count happens! When this happened, they were ordered to stop reporting the count at 3:30am. Then 100000 votes for Joe and none for anyone else were jammed through the vote counting machines and the graphs sent to ABC News show Trump clearly winning and a vertical spike shows the vote dump to put Biden just ahead. All up, 235000 votes were reported to be dumped into swing states to alter the outcome by 3% consistently. In addition, the CIA developed the software used by almost all vote counting machines in most states and most counties. This software was found to switch as many as 20000 votes from Trump to Biden and never the reverse. This was found when they hand-counted the votes. They will need to hand-count the lot. Fake ballots are easy to spot with the right equipment - all weighted correctly and watermarked to be legal. The issue for us is that we are also using said machines which use this software designed to control election outcomes. Americans are fighting and dying on our behalf to ensure election processes are fair and law-abiding! Why all this hatred, filth and vitriol directed at a people and a system you guys don't understand? This is far from over.

    Election Facts = Legal Votes + correct counting by hand + Federal Observation of counting. Election victory is never decided by the Controlled Mass Media of any country, ever. Check the minute-by-minute vote reporting graphs for blatantly obvious fraud and glue your eyes to the screen when videos are shown in court of truck loads of Joe-only votes being dumped into the count room long past the deadline. That's not called 'swing' - it's called a 'spike'! The Dems lost some key members in the senate and Republicans control the House 63 to 24. The independent media outlets are the only Free Press worth watching and supporting. The Controlled Mass Media has been proven time and again to run an agenda of lies and propaganda to control and destroy humanity. They love to divide the masses and turn us against each other to distract us from dealing with the real issue, which starts with the trialling and jailing of those who censor Freedom of information to control election results.

    No they don't win. Not by a long shot. Who says? Your lying, agenda-driven Mass Media Propaganda Outlets, that's who! The media Do Not get to decide who wins elections. I'll be brief - more later if you ask nicely :-) Let's hear from Jenna Ellis, Legal Adviser to the President, who just today issued this statement... "Media co-ordinated efforts are attempting to simply declare Joe Biden the president and ignore the rule of law. There is no official winner until every legal vote is counted accurately, the states certify results and all legal challenges are resolved." The statement from The President, Donald Trump, is even more telling. Look it up on his website - they haven't "censored" that one yet! Not one state has certified Joe Biden has won that state. Not One! The recount has not started in any contested state and these will start Monday their time or Tuesday our time. Legal challenges will start at that time also. They are all legitimate. Do not give up. Keep the hope alive. There is no way Trump can lose. Remember the Bush versus Gore election of 2000? The media championed Gore all the way to December 14th, when he lost!

    Russia and China both own the Bidens & the democrats. Each country has privately paid his family millions upon millions over their lives of crime. The democrats are full to the hilt of Satan-worshipping criminal pedophiles. Because Joe's loyalty is to those who own him, he cannot legally run for president.

Other than a passing interest I don't bother and am annoyed at the full coverage on TV stations it is getting here. Yes, it will affect the world but we don't need a minute by minute discourse.

    My husband takes a great deal of interest whereas I'm frankly sick of it. I hope that Trump does not get back as President because he is only interested in himself and not what is best for the country. He is a complete nutcase.

    Where America goes Australia follows. The media scene in the US has helped create this scenario over there. It is the same media we have here, Murdoch's empire. Be warned, his newspapers are helping to create the same scenario here. Hopefully, by seeing the unravelling of the USA, we will be prepared and won't allow ourselves to fall into that trap here.

    Agree about Murdoch, he tries to control everything in every country he goes to. He should not even be allowed stay in Australia, after all he became an American Citizen, after he had ruined the newspaper scene in England and a lot of peoples' lives with his underhanded phone tapping. His false acting that he did not know about. And now our Gov., has actually helped him out by donating his Business millions of dollars. Totally wrong to give him a Monopoly. He backed Trump and helped him become President and now his Fox news is ditching his sinking President.

    I pray Donald Trump does not get back into the White House as President he has done a terrible job as a leader of that country, he is the worst leader I have ever seen in my lifetime. He knew that deadly virus could be transmitted from person to person and didn't care and now 234,835 people have died and there has been not one minute of silence for them and 9,646,319 people are infected and will possibly die and he doesn't care. His words were "people die, people commit suicide" when asked about the virus. He is racist, he thinks he knows more than the doctors/scientists and suggested that the doctors are profiting from Covid19. He lies about his taxes, he is going to take their health care away especially from the people that have ongoing illnesses and replace it with nothing. He had the police try to fine a homeless person for not wearing a mask yet he told people everywhere you didn't need to wear a mask. All I can say is thank goodness he is not the leader of this country. He has no right to keep changing the laws to suit himself. I feel Joe Biden would be much better for that country, he is not perfect, (nobody is) but he understands loss having lost a son, he is not racist and appears to genuinely care about the people.

    Whom whoever becomes the President would have a long road ahead if it's Trump well he has more time to finish what he originally promised and rebuild American industries but at the same time divide an even more divided country. As to say if Biden gets in he has only so many years to rebuild or heal internal frustrations and economic downward spiral. Either it will be civil war with a president with horrible yellow spray tan whom says "and we have really big ships" to another old codger who can change what?.

    I have followed U.S. current affairs for some years having some business and veterans relationships over a an equally long period. While I am particularly careful not to cause offence with my many friends, close and family, I make it the rule not to discuss politics with them as many can be of different political persuasion and I look on as an observer and attend many Election Watch activities over the years. I see a very uncomfortable situation arising in America where it is becoming a major battleground. The current candidates are not as good for America as hoped. While the current President has done much he has failed in some areas and the alternative is considered too old for the position and the plan has been to shoehorn a dark skin socialist to succeed.While there are faults on both sides it is apparent that the battle continues from 2016. Good Luck America you need it.

    Having been to the US many times and having many friends there I have watched in horror how a man with no education, who cannot pronounce countries or world leaders' names correctly, who has sacked anyone who has tried to educate or advice him and replace them over and over with friends and then sack them to employ his children and sons' girl friends as his top level team at astronomical salaries . His megalomania and paranoid rantings remind me of the Nuremberg rallies of Hitler with adoring fan screaming back at his dangerous but nonsensical rantings. He has destroyed the economy and no wonder as he has been bankrupt several times himself, he cares nothing for most of humanity and even stole from his own charity and is no longer allowed to be involved with any, his record as a sleazy womaniser, adulterer and best buddy with Epstein is horrific and his lack of respect for anyone with years of training, education and knowledge is frightening. He has done nothing to "Make America Great" Instead his pigheadedness and denial has led to millions of dead or very sick Americans. He did not have Coronavirus!!! It was another of his ploys to convince his fanatics that he is God. It is inconceivable how anyone can trust his lies, made-up statistics, his own self adulation . God help America if he should have bamboozled enough of the ignorant to still support him because he does not give a damned stuff about the average American as the past 4 years have shown. PS Forget the obscene insults if you are a Trump fan as that only supports my comments

    Well said Eileen! Trump doesn't want to govern America, he doesn't give a toss about America or its people. He just loves being loved! He loves being The Greatest Show On Earth! He loves winning! He loves being the top dog. He doesn't want to let all that go. Life will be unbearable to him - to have been there, and then to have to give it up. He doesn't care WHAT he destroys to make sure he doesn't "lose". That really is how Hitler behaved, too.

    Very well put Eileen, he is only concerned with feathering his own nest & those of the 1% obscenely rich who benefited from his term as 'President' ( in inverted commas on purpose as he never earned the title). He is an egotistical little brat who needs his backside spanked & sent packing. He never cared for the people who blindly vote for him. He has made the USA into a laughing stock and it will take years to rebuild. I

    Well said Eileen! The amount of damage that Trump has done in the last 4 years is extremely troubling & god help us if he gets another 4. He has destroyed the environment & continues to weaken institutions & lower standards. He is an enemy of democracy, has disrespected America's allies and worships dictators & autocrats like Putin, Kim Jong-un & Bolsenaro. If he has his way he would change the legislation so he could be a lifetime president. It boggles my mind how many people still believe he is a successful businessman when infact he inherited all his wealth, lost most of it & survives on borrowed money which he never pays back. To have a President that currently owes over $400 million is a worry & explains why he doesn't want to leave the White House. I only hope that once he leaves the protection of the Presidency he will be held accountable for all the illegalities he is involved in. Trump is not above the law even though he thinks he is.

    The mentality of most of them is quite sound compared to what they have been repeatedly subjected to. They have dozens upon dozens of independent news sources quite opposite to those you have obviously been indoctrinated with. There are two sides to every story. You need to see both sides and only then can you make the right choices.

    Yes i follow US politics intrepidly , i watched the oversight committee's meetings , c-span , SOTU . and i can't believe why the liberals got away with their lies to impeach Trump . There were so many individuals involved in concocting this fabricated story . If you followed the meetings , you would be well aware of all the parties involved . Trey Gowdy ripped through all of them and left them blubbering fools . It seems everyone is anti Trump , why ? He has done much for the economy and the blacks and hispanics , the NASDAQ and Dow Jones is high as is the GDP . Obama in two terms couldn't achieve what Trump has done . What happened to the 9 trillion in government spending , what happened in Libya and in Syria ? Where was Russia getting it's uranium , What happened to the investigative journalists and government staff who were looking at Obama and Hillary , that all apparently died of suicide . Heaven help the US if the liberals get in , Biden will be abandoned as a patsy and they'll get back to what they do best , scam people , line their own pockets . Why don't people understand that Obama is a muslim , hated america and financed Syria and ISIS , yet he and his wife hang around like a bad smell ..The sad part of all of this is that the decline of the US nation is happening , not because of one person , but the entire US population , led by the media . The liberals are loving the anarchy , protesting , rioting , arson BLM , Let's blame Trump , it's the US populace that is so out of touch , they need the media for guidance , maybe a socialist government would be better placed for them , then they wouldn't have to think , just tow the line !

    Its clear you have fallen for Trumps lies & fake news bullsh.t. He inherited his wealth, inherited the good economy from Obama and has done nothing for the African Americans or lower socio-economic classes. He only cares about himself & his wealthy cronies and it is he who perpetuates racism, anarchy & divisiveness. No wonder he is the most unpopular president in Americas history. The USA was once the respected leader in the free world but now with Trump the USA is a laughing stock with no integrity.

    Wow, you have been REALLY indoctrinated. Your well written comment is an essay on all the tropes invented by Trump to gaslight his nation, supported by the media! It's amazing, isn't it, how we can both be seeing two entirely parallel universes - one is entirely truth to you and lies to me, and vice versa! I think THAT is the problem, which is actually also the point you finish up making, and that is that the media drives the emotions of the American people and is gradually dividing them more and more - dangerously so. And it is entirely unnecessary! When it boils down to it, they are all normal people sharing the same space they live in. They've managed it up till now. so I really fear civil war in the US - outraged Trumpists with a lot of armoury (made angry for all the reasons you discuss in your comment) against everyone else.

    If you go to America and ask the average 'man in the street' about Australia they haven't a clue and don't care. Likewise I'm over the Trump and internal politics crap that the gutter press in Australia think we need to know. If we concentrated less on what's going on in America and more on the issues facing Australia we would be a lot better off.

    I kind of agree with you but as US is a world leader so to speak it does affect the rest of the world. When I went to America years ago they had no idea of much outside their own country. Very insular and focused on themselves. Very Rah Rah. Would never go back and that was before all this rubbish that is going on there now.
