The BBC scoffed and sneered yesterday when Trump stated that he and his administration were the subject of a witch-hunt…trouble is, as we all know, Trump is right…the Media are almost 100% against him…including the impartial BBC.

A study from Harvard University puts meat on the barebones….and it makes for interesting reading.

Which media organisation is one of the most balanced?  Fox News.  How does the BBC fair?  Of its reports on Trump 74% were negative in tone…the only surprise there is that the figure is so low.

    I would guess that those neutral in tone count for positive. I can’t see the BBC or CNN getting more than 5% positive, and that only from guests who are there officially to put the Trump side but in reality are only there to be harangued or screeched at as that CNN lunatic woman did the other day to that ex-Marine.

    The sad truth is that we think Fox Is good however it is still marginally biased against the POTUS. Bearing in mind he is doing positive things and of course there is no link to Russia at all it is not good at all.. My take on the media is that it is unhinged now, and I suspect that many ‘middle of the road people’ with sound minds are cottoning on that there is no neutrality.
    63 million voted for Trump, these people are lost to the media, they have been written off. Leave voters here are treated in the same way so 17.4 million people are now aware of media bias and have been written off.
    The LibDems Labour and the Greens in supporting ‘remain’ are fighting for a mere 26% of the electorate that wish to remain.
    Rather than question the sanity of the POTUS they really should question their own sanity, but then again perhaps Flabottomus was in charge of working out the logisitics of who to campaign towards!

      The media has lost it as they say. Lost their cool and lost their audience. It is inconceivable that the President is some kind of Russian spy/agent /whatever.
      What is he supposed to have leaked ? That isis is dangerous? We all know that. That Israel and Russia maybe share information. Highly likely in my opinion. That Isis is the common enemy of civilisation?
      That the US and Russia should share information? Very sensible in many opinions.
      I just do not get it at all. it really looks like a concerted campaign by the progressives to get him at all costs. Well the country boys and girls of the flyover states might just not like that at all and they are the real America. The rest on the east and the west coasts and in the universities? No problem at all if it comes to a showdown.

    I wish we had a Donald Trump here, who would purge our institutions of the marxists and concurrently destroy the far-left bbc.
    President Trump has just over 3.5 years to go and if he keeps up the pace he has set for himself, if he only has one term, he’ll have brought the USA back from the brink of destruction. And the influence of the far-left bbc will count for nothing.

          I am afraid that she appears to me as a woman of little belief other than her own entitlement to wield power. They say Leopards never change their spots and I am afraid that in this case Theresas personality reflects her shoes. She has also become the ultimate Queen of platitudes, Which she liberally employs in her speeches to give the impression that she gives a toss about our nation but in truth her concern for our culture goes no further than the next election.

          Most people like me who voted on Brexit voted for two main reasons
          1 To regain our sovereignty back from the EU bureaucrats
          2 To retain control of our borders

          She is certainly not stupid and must be well informed enough to know this is probably true for most of the people who voted for her.

          Therefore it would naturally follow that the majority of the population would all vote for the leader who could deliver this best. And of late most peoples (even remainers) now just want her to “get on with it”

          Yet she is still deliberately vague about controlling inward migration, vague about what control EU courts will retain over us and still vague about our fishing waters. And these are the things that are reported. Surely in any negotiation these should be “red lines” and not open for any negotiation. I am afraid until she makes some sort of firm commitment on these “red lines” she cannot be trusted any more than Diane Abbot could be trusted with running a penny stall at a market!

          Whether she likes it or not the world has moved on from the days when the whole country would meekly accept being bankrupted in order to preserve the riches of the bankers and globally linked businessmen – but while she still retains the likes of EU loving Hammond as chancellor and Rudd (who is quite happy hounding Tommy Robertson but is not that concerned about muslim radicals) as Home Secretary this all amply demonstrates to me that she still “dont get it” or just dont dont care.

          I desperately want to be wrong about her but fear that I am not

          She has become the perfect “soundbite politician and like the BBC has become ” Tough on truth and even tougher on the causes of truth.

      I really dont know Dave. Since Farage was pretty much forced out by a combination of Tory plants, the likes of Hamilton, and those who want to return the party back to little more than a pressure group – They may as well rename themselves to something like The All UK Fish and Chip Party for what influence they currently wield.

      I expect I will probably have to vote May and hold my nose at the same time and hope that someone like Farage returns to UKIP to give it the sense of purpose and determination it seems to have lost.

    There is only one party in UK now. The open borders common purpose blairite party. Some are on the extreme left like Corbyn and some are on the centre left like May. It does not matter who wins the election. May was chosen to stop brexit. She will now hijack the ref and say that she has been chosen to carry it out her way. It’s going to be a Norway style fake brexit if you are lucky. I knew it when the times and murdoch and clarke performed the bloody difficult woman tripe after killing ledsom’s leadership bid with the mother and no mother set up. They could not go to members. Could they? That would have led to Brexit.

        I think for the next five years brexit will be slowly fudged and disassembled in favour of something far less radical and far weaker than what we all voted for.

        I am afraid there seems to be strong whiff off treachery surrounding Theresa with the likes of Fallon and Hammond all being allowed to make statements suggesting that what we will actually be getting is more Camoronesque thin gruel dressed up as Lobster thermador. Maybe it is some sort of tactic where her ministers make these wheedling statements and she is then shown bringing them to heel. Cue the brexit heroine. But these days where honest politicians are few and far between and she is in a strong position anyway, why do this?

        No I think she is a remainer at heart and a brexit fudge is what we will receive. Our only hope in the medium/long term (assuming that Farage doesnt re-enter mainstream politics) is that someone brutally honest like Tommy Robinson makes it into mainstream politics and is able to galvanise working people – but that would never be allowed. I am sure the delightful Amber would be pleased to deal with that one.

        But who knows – People are starting to wake up and to what is going on and it would not take much for people to realise how much they are truly under threat by the EU and its attendant dangerous migration madness.

        What is for sure if Theresa does not start to effectively start to deal with the treasonable and the constantly “pant pissing” BBC within a few months of being elected then it is obvious to all the direction of travel she intends to follow.

  7. Richard Pinder says:

    Not the Nine O’clock News had lots of jokes about conspiracies.
    Frankie Boyle’s joke about the Queen being a lizard and Gyles Brandreth’s joke about North Korea attacking the NHS. But all took the Russia Conspiracy for granted, without questioning why the FBI would continue an investigation that had not obtained any evidence, or whether the Russia conspiracy was being used by the Swamp, as an excuse to spy on President Trump.

    But then there wasn’t any jokes about the unsolved murder of Democratic National Committee data analysis, Seth Rich. But I have been informed that WikiLeaks is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to a conviction, in Rich’s death, and an FBI forensic report of Rich’s computer, generated within 96 hours of Rich’s murder, showed he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter and documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time. 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21, and WikiLeaks started publishing DNC emails on July 22, 12 days after Rich was murdered.
    Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by Rich’s family, said that a source had told him that Rich was in contact with WikiLeaks.
    Assange has said: “Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material, often very significant risks. There’s a 27-year-old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back, murdered, just two weeks ago, for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington”

    It should be noted that WikiLeaks has a policy of not confirming or denying any person has been a source for WikiLeaks, even if they are deceased.

    Rich’s mother has said that her son’s “hands were bruised, his knees are bruised, his face is bruised, and yet he had two shots to his back, and yet they never took anything.” The Democrats, the BBC and the Swamp believe that Russian intelligence was behind the DNC leak, but WikiLeaks denies being tied to Russian intelligence.

    Also, on August 1st, Victor Thorn, who wrote four anti-Clinton books including “Hillary (and Bill): The Murder Volume“, was said to have killed himself with a gun on his 54th birthday, while on top of a mountain near his Pennsylvania home. Thorn made several appearances on “The Russell Scott Show” and told the host, “Russell, if I’m ever found dead, it was murder. I would never kill myself.” The next day, August 2nd, Shawn Lucas, the lead attorney who served the DNC with a lawsuit alleging fraud in the presidential race, died as a result of a combination of drugs, including kratom, fentanyl, cyclobenzaprine, and mitragynine.
    The DNC emails appear to show DNC officials favouring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the primary, and the lawsuit served by Shawn Lucas was on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters.

    Also, Former United Nations General Assembly President, John Ashe, was found dead in his New York home. The cause of death was reported as a heart attack, but the police said his throat had been crushed, presumably by a barbell he dropped while pumping iron.
    Ashe was scheduled to testify within a week, with Chinese businessman and co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who was accused of smuggling $4.5 million into the U.S. and lying that it was to buy casino chips and more. Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate document “as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funnelled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. During the trial, the prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bagman Ng.

    Also, Joe Montano, who served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee before Debbie Wasserman Schultz and was an aide to Hillary’s running-mate, Tim Kaine, died after the Wikileaks DNC email dump.

    So we have the additions to the so called “Clinton Death List” or “Murder Volume” of John Ash, of a heart attack or a crushed throat on 22nd June 2016, Seth Rich, of Gun Shot wounds on 10th July 2016, Joe Montano, of a heart attack on 25th July 2016, Victor Thorn, of Gun Shot wounds on 1st August 2016, Shawn Lucas, of Drugs, on 2nd August 2016 and Gavin MacFadyen, of lung cancer on 22nd October 2016.

    But as of now, 20th May 2017, Donald Trump has not yet been Assassinated.

      Well, Donald Trump has not yet been assassinated. That’s true unless you are the bbc North America correspondent Anthony Zurcher. Such is his and the bbc’s hatred of President Trump that he might just as well be dead already and replaced with the vice-president, Mike Pence.
      Is Mike Pence distancing himself from Trump?
      Why else would the article refer to President Trump as Mr Trump 5 times, as President Trump zero times and the words vice-president appear at least a dozen times?
      Go figure.

          Yes asking questions is the current BBC technique to avoid accusations of taking a position and it works best with Trump where any old gossip and trivia can be repeated.
          The thinnest of stories are endlessly recycled – ones that lack authentication let alone being evidence of wrongdoing.
          The Liberal Terror is working itself up to a frenzy of expectation over Trump’s imminent impeachment yet there is no substantive crime offered up to justify such action.
          Did Hillary’s campaign have no interaction with foreign governments?

      Richard:

      You have made some excellent points, which is why we will never see them on the MSM.

      Seth Rich was almost certainly the source of the DNC leak, there was no Russian hack, and now he has been assassinated.

      The Clinton family appear to be at the centre of a web of corruption and murder without parallel, yet attract virtually no media comment. President Trump, on the other hand, seemingly cannot make a few comments in the Oval Office to the Russian Foreign Minister without them appearing on the front page of the New York Times. Is his office bugged by the NSA? It seems like it.

      Someone might remind the MSM that we are not at war with Russia, it is not illegal to talk to a Russian, and that it is absolutely necessary for the government of the USA to maintain ongoing and civilized conversations with Russia.

      The continuing hysterical attacks on President Trump, without precedent as far as I know, seem redolent of a slow motion coup by the Deep State, aided and abetted by the Trump hating MSM and the Democrat Party, which seems riddled with corruption the MSM never mention.

      I don’t think this swamp can be drained. The corruption is the system. Imagine if a politician said he would drain the swamp in Brussels, We all know that is impossible. I think Washington DC is the same. I wish President Trump all the good luck in the world. He will surely need it.

    I think the miscalculation Trump has made was that he viewed governing the country like taking over a business. You identify a problem then solve it.
    Like the UK, most senior appointments in the US are probably made through patronage rather than through talent or the ability to do the job. The liberals have for many years been in the ascendancy and I am sure (also like the UK) they have not been idle in installing their place men in positions of power (especially in the judiciary). Some of them we probably do not even know about.

    Just like the brexit vote in the UK. The liberals have identified Trump as the single most deadly threat to their dominance for generations and consequently will be pulling in favours left , right and centre to deal with it.
    I am afraid ” draining the swamp” is going to be a lot longer and more complicated than it appears – but we must stick with it as things in both countries have gone so far now we are probably drinking in the last chance saloon if anything even slightly resembling western democracy is to survive.

    I suppose the only good thing about these times is at least now we should be more easily be able to identify the “enemy” as the time appears to be getting closer where people will have to decide which side of the fence they want to stand on and consequently some will have to break cover to do it.

    I have said it before and will say it again – at the moment there is a political vacuum in the ground that UKIP used to hold. Therefore there are votes for the taking if only a more forward thing and more professionally looking party could establish themselves.

    Pity – an opportunity lost or was it stolen?

    I have been wondering whether Trump will soon suddenly resign. In fact I am beginning to expect it despite him not doing any of the things the fascist-left accuse him of. If I were him I would be thinking “What’s the point in continuing? They are not allowing me to govern, to put right the problems that were caused in the Obama, Clinton and Bush years. I was a successful businessman with multiple billion-dollar businesses – I might as well go back to that.”

    A resignation statement could be something like. “Fellow Americans, I came into this great office with the only intention to make America great again. I would have helped all people, all colours, all religious affiliations and of any sexuality. It would have worked: The country would have been united by happiness, but my enemies have made governing this wonderful country impossible. My enemies are the enemies of the American people, the enemies of the American way, the enemies of truth and fairness, the enemies of democracy, the enemies of happiness, the enemies of the working-class. My enemies are your enemies – they hate all decent honest, law-abiding, hard-working people like yourselves. These are the people who believe that lies about conspiracies that never happened must be repeated until decent people are also hoodwinked and start believing them themselves. They also believe in violence at all times and for all occasions because their message is so shallow and weak. They are so full of hatred and contempt for the decent people of America.

    I go now because these people who have infested virtually the whole of the media and the judiciary, as well as the higher ranks of many police forces have made this country ungovernable by me. My resignation will be seen as a victory for evil but it is hopefully only a battle and not the whole war for freedom – which must continue. Mike Pence will immediately take over the running of this country, and the fight for justice and truth, and I fully support him in all his endeavours. He will make America great again.

    I will return to being a normal citizen and will take over again, after a few rounds of golf, the running of my companies with my loyal family by my side. I will then look into taking legal action against those who have slandered my name and libelled me continuously. This will include various “news” networks and some politicians, probably starting with Maxine Walters who has said such disgusting lies about me. I intend to ensure that these people can never get away with abusing, so dishonestly, anyone else ever again. That’s it from me. I would finally like to thank all those who have stood by me who have always known the truth. Good-bye and God Bless America.”

    I must confess I’d no idea but, according to David Aaronovitch on the BBC News channel a few minutes ago, the BBC have given President Trump ‘the benefit of the doubt’ over the past couple of months, in order to be fair and allow time for his Presidency to be assessed.
    Naturally, the President is not given his title, being referred to relentlessly as ‘Trump’, but that’s a given anyway. This continuously fair and balanced assessment reached that decision from day 1, but I would still venture to say that a quartet – chaired, apparently, by Tin-Tin – of disparaging and boringly biased opinions cannot, in fairness, be in any way fair, or indeed balanced, mature, effective or informative.

    Got to say that the “political elite” are in lockstep with their goons and “anti-fascists” on nearly ALL BBC forums these days.
    Am no longer surprised at the crowd hostility and whoops and hollers at anything that the far-left now say.
    The BBC would once have hand-picked these surrogate Nazis-but there`s no need now that univeristies, quangos, unions and all “right , good-thinking people” will self-select, share the petrol and infest any media shows open to politics.
    Witness the howls over the NHS and the unargued right of the left to claim it as their God…with NOBODY able to speak about it as “theirs”. Witness too the consensus over things Green, things educational and things media…ALL are captive to the Lefts dominance nowadays. Any opposition would now be unemployable, hounded off the course or otherwise silenced or scared witless.
    Really sinister times.
    Heard “Any Answers” for a few minutes earlier-the BBC is infested and reinforces its virtuous left posturings with nearly all callers slagging off the Tories re their social care.
    THIS surely would be manna to the Left normally-who like Dignitas, assisted dying, sneer at brexit bed blocking grannies who prevent yoof from getting on and sending them to Shipman Sunset Home…or Mid Staffs if you prefer. But no-the Left choose this week to “weaponise” the wrinklies, just to aim a lamppost over the wall and into the Tories.
    I do see this as their perpetual intifada…the old are useful only in terms of clobbering the Tories this week…I despise the BBC and Labour, really is about time they were called out on their Marxist idiocy and hypocrisy…but who`s doing it apart from our few online sites like this one?

    Therefore I would advise President Trump to tweet this information, so that even if Mr Dotcom or Mr Trump are murdered by the Clinton/MSM/Swamp, the American people would know that there was evidence available for Congress, that the election of Trump was influenced by a Bernie Sanders supporter, not the Russians.
