  1. Richard Pinder says:

    On Thursday at 9pm, BBC 2 is doing a hatchet job on Trump called “Conspiracy Files: The Trump Dossier” about Trumps Conspiracy Theories.

    I guess it will include Conspiracy Theories such as the Assassination of JFK and Conspiracy Theories Trump no longer supports, such as Obama not born in Hawaii and any other disproved Theories once supported by Trump in the past. And any other conspiracy theories that the BBC types regard as funny, not possible, or don’t want to be true.

    But it probably wont include Conspiracy Theories about Climate Politics and Science, which are mostly true, as well as any other proven Conspiracy Theories. In fact I believe the BBC could pull the Program off air if as I have heard, one or more of those Conspiracy Theories about Hillary Clinton, have been proven true by those emails.

    We can find out about this on Wednesday at 8.30pm, on RT, Freeview Channel 135, Crosstalk, “The Clinton Emails”. As long as the BBC does not Jam the signal again.

      I must say I am heartily amused by all of this. Only few months ago we had all the sneering lefties on Radio 4 coming out with the Donald Trump – “Comment of the week” and similar contemptuous comments as if he was some sort of unpleasant and guileless slug that had crawled out from under a stone and had been found drowned in a glass of Jenni Murrays – Louis Roederer Crystal.

      Imagine it round at Jennies place – “Ugh Portia he left nasty slug trails everywhere and ended up in my wine – Quite spoiled it. I had to resort to drinking the white lightning I was saving for the Hope not Hate raffle”.

      Dear God – Please can Donald win – if only to wipe the conceited smile from the faces of all these virtuous, smug, conceited bastards !!!!!!!!!

      Lets hope it happens – I for one shall be wishing on a star next week!


      • Deborah says:

        I am just pleased that I am not voting. If Hillary wins, her obvious disregard for the Law and her intent for enhancing the Clinton Foundation means that she would be doing many things that would not be reported. If Trump wins every single thing he does will be reported, but taken out of context, and will be presented as something bad for both the people of the US and the world. Do you remember how the BBC reported on Reagan? Only after he died were we told by the press of his skills as President. Listening to the Today programme this morning, they obviously have not forgiven Boris for Brexit.
        However if Trump wins, I will enjoy the day, and just suffer the next four years.


      • NCBBC says:

        The tragedy will be that Trump wins the popular vote, but loses the electoral college.

        Here is a good analysis

        EmailGate Has Destroyed Clinton, Inc.


    • Dadad says:

      I have no problem at all with this programme, so long as an equivalent one is run re Hillarious, well before next Tuesday.
      And the chances of that are……?


  2. Guest Who says:

    This reminds me of BBC maths and its use of the word ‘split’ as in ‘views being’, referring to 99 people on the Graun CiF page appalled about the 10:10 video, to one who was oak with it.

    Frankly no poll is worth a damn looking at history, so let them play their games and play Canute with whatiffery as it simply excavates their credibility grave quicker.

    Maybe a better area for investigation is the trend to getting votes in by various means in advance from those not exposed to full facts or unfolding matters of significance?


  3. Dover Sentry says:

    I have money on Trump winning.

    If Clinton wins, Trump will call for a new election in light of the email scandal(s). Especially if it is shown that CNN tipped her off regarding the Debate questions.

    Trump will be very much ahead by Nov 8 despite the polls.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      You can’t have another election in the USA. The timing of elections is set down in the Constitution and cannot be changed (unless there is a Constitutional Amendment). They even had a Presidential Election in 1864, during the Civil War, though I don’t think the Confederate States took part!

      Hopefully it won’t matter, and Trump will win.


  4. TrueToo says:

    Hopefully Trump will hammer Clinton over her Benghazi treachery and pose the rhetorical question:

    How could you ignore Ambassador Stevens’ repeated calls for more security and still claim that he was your “friend?”

    Naturally the question has to be rhetorical because she will not answer it.

    If this treacherous, greedy woman becomes president it will be a dark day for the US and beyond.


  5. Jack M says:

    No mention at all of the US presidential race on the 6.30 news headlines this morning on Radio 4. Funny that, I wonder why.

    Never mind, here’s Norman Smith right after the news to administer a lengthy good kicking to the default bogeyman UKIP!


  6. Guest Who says:

    Not strictly BBC, but this made me chuckle. Evan would approve, surely?


    • Anat T. says:

      Just like the American MSM the BBC has been giving us Clinton lies and hiding the easily accessible truth.
      For an excellent summary of the truth of the FBI investigation, and the tricks used to subvert it, see here:


      • TrueToo says:

        Anat T. – Interesting article but I heard that the FBI only got a warrant from a judge to investigate Huma Abedin’s emails, not Clinton’s specifically – although no doubt there’ll be many emails back and forth between the two.

        I was dumbfounded to learn, from a judge on Fox News, that if Clinton becomes president and is then indicted she will have the power to pardon herself.

        Somebody pass me a bucket. I think I’m going to be sick.


        • G.W.F. says:


          From the Telegraph
          ‘By law, she could actually pardon herself and clear the record. A president can pardon any person, including the president.

          Richard Nixon contemplated pardoning himself, but in the end his successor, Gerald Ford, did it for him – something which contributed to Ford’s immense unpopularity, and helped cause him to lose the 1976 election to Jimmy Carter.
          Mrs Clinton would be very ill advised to do so – it is seen as admitting guilt, but evading the consequences, and would damn her in the eyes of an already-sceptical public.’


          • TrueToo says:


            It certainly would damn her in the eyes of the public but then she would be president for 4 years during which time she would damn the public.


            • NCBBC says:

              Given the character of Hillary, she certainly will. She will open the gates to the USA, and let it be flooded by its enemies, almost all of whom will vote Democrat – forever. This is what Obama wanted – to destroy the USA.


  7. All Lives Matter says:

    Today’s headline is Clinton Accuses Trump of Bullying Women. Funny how the BBC runs with this but has barely mentioned the Bill Clinton rape accusations which seem far more credible.

    The BBC doesn’t care about women. It only cares about pushing cultural Marxism.


    • Anat T. says:

      Yea, it is still top news, ‘Clinton accuses Trump of bullying women’
      The bigots at the BBC must think us women really really stupid.


      • Guest Who says:

        There was great newspaper tweet with pictures of HRC and a senior Dem.

        Both were women.

        The latter was saying the former is a weak candidate.

        Other women were going mental telling her she should be saying such things… as a woman.

        There really is not enough popcorn at the moment.


  8. Cranmer says:

    Clinton’s speech was bizarre – basically saying do you want your sons to have Donald Trump as a role model. This is coming from a woman who is still married to Bill Clinton! To me this just proved the Democrats have lost all the arguments. Trump has his flaws but at least he is trying (or claiming to be trying) to address serious problems in the USA. Clinton just seems to be making personal insults.


    • Guest Who says:

      If Obama had a son, there is a fair chance he may have been fathered by Bill.


      • Guest Who says:

        In this vein, I must share this from HRC:

        Not sure who handles her social media PR, but in the comments it starts pretty much as one might expect and goes downhill thereafter.

        Maybe the BBC can dig up some archive of her with Jimmy Savile, as they tried with Mrs. T, who did not ‘do’ social media.

        She lead a country.


  9. G.W.F. says:

    Although anything can happen it is beginning to look as if Trump will win. It will be good that the BBC’s girl loses and the look on Dimbletrot’s face as he announces the results will be pure joy to behold.
    But that aside, I am disappointed that it is the email scandals which will be seen as the cause of Clinton losing. I would like to see it as a victory for those Americans (and Europeans too) who want to see an end to PC and its restrictions on speech and thought; a limit to immigration which should be discussed without being charged with racism; an end to the Green stranglehold on energy, and the beginning of a retaliation against the surrender to Islam. All of these things were in people’s minds before Trump stood and will be important whether he wins or loses. But it would be a good sign is these were identified as the explicit reasons why Trump won


    • Cranmer says:

      Note to all readers – don’t leave any milk bottles near the telly if Laura Doomsburg is reporting on a Trump victory. Her facial expression alone is liable to cause it to turn sour immediately!


    • NCBBC says:

      My hopes too.


  10. Cranmer says:

    BBC News at Ten managed to shoehorn PC into two items so clumsily that it just made me laugh.

    A feature on the 80th anniversary of television broadcasting was entirely about sexual inequality in broadcasting. The early TV staff were mostly women, apparently – but of course, this was because of sexism! They only got the jobs because TV was seen as inferior to radio. When TV became more popular, apparently the women got pushed out.

    Then on London news we heard about the closure of New Scotland Yard’s 1970s building. Flashbacks from a woman who worked there – talking about how it was sexist because she was made to buy presents for mens’ wives!

    It’s pure broadcasting by numbers. It’s as if the BBC has a checklist of ‘isshues’ and every item must contain at least one of them, eg Tory Bashing, Islamophobia, Racism, Sexism, Transphobia, Homophobia, Christian bashing, Boris Bashing, Police Cover Up, Thatcher’s Legacy, UKIP bashing, Funny Farage, Funny Trump, etc etc etc


  11. shelly says:

    Leaving aside Shrillary’s ghastly, mendacious, self serving personality, her dreadful trouser suits, and her corrupt cabal of supporters.

    Her ear splitting, shrieking voice should be enough on its own to make people turn away. Imagine if she was President, having to listen to her assault on your ears every time you switch the telly on.

    Please Americans do the right thing.


    • NCBBC says:

      Yes Shelly.

      Please Americans do the right thing, and along with defence of the Western world, defend our ears from four years of the Hillary screech.


  12. ObiWan says:

    Even Sky News (UK) are now having to admit that trump might just take the Presidency:

    Presidential poll shows Trump edge into the lead

    Donald Trump has taken the lead in one national US presidential poll that gives him a slender one point advantage over Hillary Clinton.

    The ABC/Washington Post poll put Mr Trump on 46% and Mrs Clinton on 45%.

    But, naturally, they are keen to emphasise that this is ‘just one’ poll, so whatevs.

    I’m loving this US election. Seeing libtards in panic mode is just great. The msm has been consistently wrong – actually, wilfully deceitful – since the start and Trump just keeps making them look like the partisan, biased, compromised fools they are. When even hard-left communist Michael Moore knows Trump is likely to win next week I get the feeling it might be time to break out the Champers.


    • Guest Who says:

      There’s a great scene in ‘Braindead’ where the heroine, who is a Democrat film student, has a nightmare that she once set with Mr. Moore.

      Credit to him, he did ‘pose’.


  13. Deborahanother says:

    Trump was always winning. You needed to avoid the media polls and look at the local state polls .Not in the BBCs interest to do that .


  14. Cranmer says:

    One thing’s for sure. If Mr Trump wins – the BBC will generate enough content for this website in one day for the next 50 years of ‘Start the Week’ threads, LOL!


    • Lobster says:

      Cranmer – That’s assuming that they haven’t all topped themselves, of course!


    • KatieH says:

      Not just the beeb the whole lot will go into meltdown here. Sad faces everywhere. Then the real sh*t will start and they will go to war on Donald where every triggered sjw will be brought in front of the cameras and microphones to spout Fascist, racist, misogynist over and over again with so much venom and hate, brexit bashing will seem like a walk in the park. i just want him to win to see those bastards squirm like the sh*ts they are. They have it coming in spades.


      • NCBBC says:

        Its well known that The Donald does not take crap from anybody. Thats one of his character “flaws” that Joe America likes.

        The BBC is a “state funded” propaganda media. It can ill afford to rile the PM and the UK government, in its close dealings with the USA, in the coming difficult times and with the Islamic war. There can be no hiding behind the EU now.

        The BBC will be reeled in. A new DG will be appointed to “modernise” the BBC in the Internet age etc.

        So lets hope and pray for the best, for whats left of Christendom.

    “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” Thomas Jefferson. (fans of President Obama take note )

    Footnote: Urgent message to Mrs Clinton – tell Hillary to read it as well! I’m sure Trump has!. A suggestion! Maybe if it was sent to her PC by EMAIL she most deffinately will read it – then probably delete it!


  16. matahari says:

    Huma Abedin….mmm is this the daughter of the woman who publicly supports worlwide sharia law? This is the family who wss based in saudi arabia and whom saudi arabia created a news business both in usa and london. now if so, and after 8 years of obama, considering the trend in migration….can you see what this was going to mean with Abedin as deputy chief of staff at the white house??


    • G.W.F. says:


      That is the one. With an office in Googe Street London. There have to be British connections.


      • matahari says:

        If it were not real and blooming worrying I’d laugh it all out as the plot for a film on how a president and his spies worked for a saudi take over of the west


  17. Invicta says:

    The game has moved on from the polls. They always tighten which was why I never believed Clinton’s daft leads. However, unless you win the Electoral College votes, you still lose.

    Looking at the FT analysis it still looks very tight even with the surge.

    The problem is Florida. Without it Trump is dead. If you are staying up to watch that will be the make or break point. He is substantially behind in College votes. Even if he wins the popular vote, he might lose because he is ‘piling it up’ in safe seats and not picking up enough swing states.

    This is not cheating I’m afraid. George Bush lost the popular vote and still became President and Florida was the key: they gave him the college votes.

    What we need is all polls showing a 4/5% margin for Trump by Sunday if this is going to be safely in the bag.


    • TrueToo says:

      Thanks for the realism, Invicta. Though I greatly appreciate the optimism in the comments above, the race is still wide open.

      And that’s an excellent and comprehensive FT link.


  18. NCBBC says:

    Whats this? This election is turning out to be a game changer. Its like the Cubs winning the World Series. Eh? What?

    Evidence to put Hillary away for life?


    BREAKING BOMBSHELL: NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes with Children, Child Exploitation, Pay to Play, Perjury

    NYPD detectives and a NYPD Chief, the department’s highest rank under Commissioner, said openly that if the FBI and Justice Department fail to garner timely indictments against Clinton and co- conspirators, NYPD will go public with the damaging emails now in the hands of FBI Director James Comey and many FBI field offices.

    “What’s in the emails is staggering and as a father, it turned my stomach,” the NYPD Chief said. “There is not going to be any Houdini-like escape from what we found. We have copies of everything. We will ship them to Wikileaks or I will personally hold my own press conference if it comes to that.”

    The NYPD Chief said once Comey saw the alarming contents of the emails he was forced to reopen a criminal probe against Clinton.

    “People are going to prison,” he said.

    This is better then any Real Housewives .. TV program.

    The BBC are stress inducing self loathing anti- British emasculated men and alpha females. They cant hide their pathetic shameless pro-Clinton reporting. She’s under investigation by the FBI yet the BBC tonight were reporting her policies and as usual sneakily editing reports to favour her and for people to fill in the blanks on Trump. They take the majority of British people for fools and Ukip supporters their complacency lost them the E.U referendum. I am looking forward to more of their tears in the near future 🙂
