Looking For The Real News
As the MSM unleash another truckload of misinformation and willed deception, I suggest that my readers avoid subjecting themselves to the gas lighting.
Instead, it can be useful to read comments from the field, from real people, telling you what is really happening.
The day of the Brexit vote I spent a considerable amount of time on the (excellent, if very explicit) Guido Fawkes site. Dozen of commenters were reporting massive turnout, many older people, many people who had not voted in a long time. More importantly, the observations were one-sided, with basically no one reporting the contrary trend. The picture was consistent, and promising. One morning later I realised these dozen of single observations, put together, were giving a more realistic picture of the events than the polls. I remind you here that after vast and very expensive polling the general consensus and plus minus average was considered 52% Remain, 48% Leave.
Exactly the contrary happened, a variation of 4 percentage points.
If you direct your mouse to the Conservative Treehouse, you will find there hundreds of reports from the field. The entire experience is a stronger version of what I have lived in June. Many reports of strong turnout in Republican counties, some commenters do not report anything special (particularly those voted outside of “rush hours” ) and most of the “very quiet day” reports come from predominantly Democratic counties. It all makes sense, and it’s a puzzle put together by very many individual observations, all over the Country, red and neutral and blue.
It’s coherent, it’s diffused, and it corresponds to common sense.
I think it’s happening.
I invite my readers to spend these difficult, tense hours reading these encouraging, sensible, real comments from the ground rather than listening to the Presstitudes of the MSM.
Let’s cut these people out of our business for as much as we can. Let them lose their jobs.
Donald is hiring.

Via Facebook I see massive lines from my friends in suburban PA… a great sign. From central Phoenix, where I dwell amidst the most Democrat section of AZ, my wife has just returned from the polls to report… she was the only one there. And AZ is actually in play, or so they tell us. Encouraging.
Agreed. I didn’t follow Brexit so closely, but I notice the same thing nonetheless: the MSM just lies, and I think mostly to itself, about the state of political reality; they just can’t accept that the public isn’t that stupid, and often has a better understanding of reality than the reporters who live in the bubble and the commentators who are paid to generate the propaganda.
From what I see here in the states, Trump could well be on the verge of a 1980-Reagan-like landslide, which will make Hillary’s attempt to conjure a close race that she steals very hard if not impossible. That’s when we’ll likely see trouble.
I call the phenomenon “weaponized despondence”. I am watching FoxBus and can sense it there.
