Ah yes!

The daily "mountain out of a mole hill", while crooked Hillary`s escapades virtually unreported.

QUESTION; If Hillary is elected, how do you think her Syria NO FLY ZONE will work out? Do you think Japan SDF will also get invovled if the US starts a Russian conflict? GO HILLARY! Trumps idea of scrapping the original plan for a pipeline from Saudi Arabia to Europe and working with Russia to defeat ISIS was a terrible idea. War with Russia is much better!

Conservative papers are advocating for readers to vote for Clinton. Arizona Republic Dallas Morning News, Houston Chronicle, New York Times, USA Today and more support and advocate voting for Hillary Clinton. Many conservative news outlets will not support Trump. Harvard Republican Club refuses to endorse Donald Trump. Many mainstream Republicans are endorsing Hillary Clinton

My hope is that Clinton will strike the right balance of principle and compromise, resulting in the best of differing philosophies, policies, and politics.

It truly is so interesting how absolutely all the major news outlets have completely given up on journalism for propaganda. Even this article. Why even bring up dirt on Trump? Why not bring up any dirt on Clinton, which there is plenty of?

Im pretty sure that over 90% of Trump coverage is in a negative sphere, while Clinton is less than 5%. If this is not a collaborated fix, than I really dont know what is.

Pence Highlights 91% ‘Hostile’ Media Coverage of Trump - 25 Oct 2016

... In the twelve weeks since the party conventions concluded in late July, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has received significantly more broadcast network news coverage than his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, but nearly all of that coverage (91%) has been hostile, according to a new study by the Media Research Center (MRC). ...

Heh, and you wonder why we don't give the things you post any credibility.

We just aren't foolish enough to think that Brietbart is anything less than entirely biased.

Post something that has even a hint of credibility and we can talk. Brietbart links are just killing your credibility.

@strangerland

"we"? Who are you talking for? I guess you speak for everyone on JT?

The credibility has disintegrated around the obviously bias media. EXAMPLE

@SuperLib Your beloved Huffington Post hired SCOTT FOVAL as a freelance Political Consultant, Analyst, Producer. Youknow the same guy in the PROJECT VERITAS videos bragging about trainning violent agitators to go to Trump rallies and taking DNC support money!!! WHOOPS!!!

Credibility!? HA!

In the 1960`s the motto was "question the government", now it appears "question people who question the government".

Everyone not stupid enough to believe Brietbart is anything even remotely close to impartial.

I guess you speak for everyone on JT?

Obviously not, since many JT posters read Brietbart as if it were credible.

The credibility has disintegrated around the obviously bias media.

Yeah, like Brietbart and Fox "News".

It's funny that after so long of the alt-right believing Fox "News" at face value for everything it says, they suddenly want to be critical of other media for being biased, when none of the so-called MSM is has nearly as much bias as Fox "News", which has been shown to post more lies than any other network.

I guess the alt-right only wants the bias to be in their favor. Or in other words, their bias is towards bias that is biased towards them.

If something in what I've posted from Breitbart is invented or opinion, it's up to you who are claiming so to prove it. A blanket attempt at claiming everything from Breitbart is wrong is just a weak attempt to avoid arguing the actual points. I don't recall any such points that Breitbart didn't back up with links to original source.

It's a lot more visible when NYT and WaPo do that. Insert a claim or opinionated comment without anything to back it up, in an article masquerading as factual, so we're left to wonder, did it really happen this way or did NYT just invent it out of thin air or is this really an opinion piece?

I would love to know who makes this stuff up? What poll? Today the polls have shifted again.Does JT even check what they post? Is the news filtered in Japan for the masses? O.K. folks heres is the REAL story. Clinton is in full panic mode, she knows Trump could pull a fast one and win the election. His numbers are going up ever so slowly and he has another 2 weeks before the campaign is finished.He is a business man, he thrives on this kind of pressure and he could very well come out on top. Don't be fooled into thinking Clinton has it in the bag. She doesn't.

Don't be fooled into thinking Clinton has it in the bag

I'm certainly not. I'm worried that people are going to get lulled into a false sense of security from the polls, and either not bother voting, or vote for Johnson or Stein, resulting in a Trump win.

Of course we all know that if Trump wins, the polls are rigged.

I wonder how that will influence the polls! It is rumoured that the last one will have Hillary in person incriminating herself! However, that is what it is, a rumour.

This last week should be really entertaining. I personally think it wont matter too much who wins, stock market is in a huge bubble, just waiting to pop!

Somewhere between 'none', and 'not at all'. Those without enough discernment to see through the videos for what they are will already be anti-hillary, and those with the discernment will maintain their current stance, whatever it is.

No one is changing their opinion this late in the game. Everyone is already polarized.

Horsley said he felt the country was leaning increasingly socialist and that voters were more inclined to focus on Trump’s problems than on issues facing Clinton, including allegations she mishandled classified emails while secretary of state.

“The nation’s willing to overlook certain things in some people and not in others,” he said.

The media outlets, and Hillary supporters, ignore the fact that Hillary is a known, proven, confirmed liar. She's lied before and she'll continue to lie in the future. Plus, if elected, Hillary's future lies will have the benefit of Presidential Executive Privilege.

If that means the elite, politicians, wallstreet etc are on my side, good for them for finally being on the right side for once.

As I've said before, the idea Trump stands for - breaking from the establishment, is a good one. Unfortunately Trump IS the establishment. So if we have to pick between two establishment people, the one that isn't bigoted, misogynistic, and homophobic, and who actually has done good for little people in her life is clearly the better option.

You can't be serious, it cannot be the one whose handling of her emails led to untold suffering of millions of Americans and jeopardising the lives of the entire U.S foreign corps. She deserves to be in jail for her crime which is more serious than that of Bush Jr who invaded nother country based on lies leading to hundred of thousands of death.

Oh please. enough of this BS! untold suffering of millions of Americans? Really? Give us one concrete example.

She deserves to be in jail for her crime which is more serious than that of Bush Jr who invaded nother country based on lies leading to hundred of thousands of death.

This has got to be the most ridiculous comment I have EVER read on JT. You think that her using a personal email account is worse than lying to get the west to invade a country that killed hundreds of thousands of iraqis and led to a civil war in that country AS WELL AS syria, killing hundreds of thousands there as well, and giving rise to IS?? Is this just how insanely desperate the trumpers are??

I'm NO fan of Hillary. AT ALL. She has got establishment printed all over her. But compared to the terrifying alternative, I'll take her any day.

Of COURSE they know Clinton will win -- the party is literally imploding! Megyn Kelly told Gingerich off after he went into meltdown mode and now he's gotten himself banned from any programs (except that nutbag Hannity, who's on his way to a heart attack with his own on-air meltdowns and extreme bigotry); Hannity STILL claims Obama is not American and has offered to fly him to Kenya if he doesn't come back, Trump is hiding in his tower and creating a fictional universe with impenetrable walls of denial inside, where everything outside is a massive conspiracy (now FOX news is also in the mainstream liberal media, by the way!), Romney is suddenly confused as to why he didn't run (he was scared of losing again), and the rest of the GOP are running for the hills despite trying to keep blacks from voting.

Better you go with the standard dialogue of being "against bigots, homophobes and misogynists (and basically all republicans are considered to be these until proven otherwise in a Democratic mob-rule courtroom).

Reuters' predictions are justified. Trump has been a big liar with empty talks and promises, including though not limited to, a change and prosperity. Only those who were born yesterday could believe that Trump will spend over 100 million from his pocket to pay for the election that he knew quite well that it will be unwinnable. Similar to his promises of making public his federal tax returns, evidence of his innocence in his self-confessed sexual assaults [i.e., the presumption of crimes], or his employment of undocumented migrant workers to build his casino and hotel. That is not mentioned his secret connections with the enemies of the USA to distort the stolen e-mails from the Clintons and the Denocrat election headquarters. Worse, Trump and his cronies have threatened to rebel if he is to lose the election, as well as filing the frivolous lawsuits against his victims. Y en a marre.

Now that he has screwed up and the press calls him on his stupid ideas you all whine and whine about bad press. It so amusing to see. Such sore losers you all are. The fact is you nominated a sociopathic liar and empty suit loser. You could not see that up front because you are too clueless to recognise reality. You are all getting what you deserve, a wipeout on November 8th when the election could have been yours if you nominated a sane candidate. But the worst is yet to come. Trump will not just take you down on November 8th, he will take the whole useless republican party down after the failed election. And many of you dim bulbs will side with him against your party.

In that case, I guess I'm not the only one who can hear the fat lady humming, huh ? I do admit, though, that the intensity of the vitriol of this election has went out of control (on both sides, mind you.) And on this site to a certain extent. "I just don't like her. " I've heard more than a few people say. Well, guess what guys, you DON'T HAVE TO like her ! She's probably not coming to your house for dinner. But if you love the good old USA, you better vote for her. The Orange Chump readily points out the problems, but is short on solutions. Then, again, that is a GOP habit, huh ? GO HILLARY ! 1/20/17 - "Madame President. " !

I completely disagree. What many might think is "vitriol" on the Democratic side is more disgust and dismay.

Because he did something that No politician has ever done and that's taking on "the system" or "The man" if you want to sound more urban.

Now that he has screwed up and the press calls him on his stupid ideas you all whine and whine about bad press.

Ohhhh, that's not entirely true. To a point, yes, but mostly they want Hillary elected, the NYT at least used to hide their partisan hearts, but recently, they admitted they have a vested interest in seeing her getting elected as well as the majority of the liberal media TV and print which equates to 80% and you can see it in their coverage how bias they are. So yeah, Trump supporters on that part have every reason to complain, if the roles were reversed every liberal head would explode and rightfully so.

It so amusing to see. Such sore losers you all are.

It's statements like this that irk me deeply about liberals, to them, this is all about name calling and ad hominem attacks and heavy on the vitriol, it's more about them than the issues. Seriously, we want to elect and have a bunch of bratty spoiled entitled kids run and take the country down deeper into the abyss?

The fact is you nominated a sociopathic liar and empty suit loser.

All politicians lie and having said that, then if you were an American without a doubt, there is NO way you could vote for Hillary, this woman literally invented the word habitual lying and nothing to show, Whatever you say about Trump the man has created businesses, (had some bankruptcies restructured) some successful and some not, sold his brand name products, some were hits and some were not, from casinos to golf courses and casinos, some of them successful and some not was a successful TV show host and one of the most popular TV shows, the man had ups and downs in business throughout his career. The man has built something tangible at least. Hillary what has she done besides messing up Syria, Crimea, Russia, Libya and Haiti?

You could not see that up front because you are too clueless to recognise reality. You are all getting what you deserve, a wipeout on November 8th when the election could have been yours if you nominated a sane candidate. But the worst is yet to come.

I admit it is very close, but what happens despite all the dirty tricks Dems will use to get this election in their hands, what happens if he wins? Will Dems kill themselves, will they sulk or accept the new president Trump. Be careful for what you libs wish for.

Trump will not just take you down on November 8th, he will take the whole useless republican party down after the failed election. And many of you dim bulbs will side with him against your party. It is so perfect and was so predictable by the reality based liberals on this board.

Ok, besides all that rhetoric, how do you feel about the infighting and the hate that is festering in the Democratic party?

Well most people point to the lack of interest the GOP has in minority and female voters. Why not expand your base? No need to be toxic and vile.

For the same reason a lot of men won't vote for Hillary.

It looks like Hillary's lies are continuing to catch up to her. She has a better chance of living in prison than living in the Whitehouse. Hillary is not the second coming of Obama. It looks more like Hillary is the second coming of Richard "I am not a crook" Nixon.

Nobody wants to work with a confirmed liar.

Nobody wants to work for a confirmed liar.

Nobody wants to hire a confirmed liar.

The polls suggest that Hillary's support is slipping away. Again.
