Awesome. I do not believe that speech can be topped on this subject. Somebody prove me wrong, if you can.

Likewise the Australian people decided to defy the propaganda narratives of their media "Betters" and vote center right PM Scott Morrison back into office, and also to send packing the prematurely celebrating Australian Labor Party and their media supporters.

Next week the EU will hold the EU Parliamentary elections across Europe. Do not be surprised to see similar results in those elections.

" defies polls forecasting loss


Another example to NOT trust polls!

Or the leftist partisan agenda propaganda pushers in the mass media. They and their "experts" are routinely wrong and they are not trustworthy people.

Most people understand what polls are. Trust? No, they are what they are. They are trying to predict a future event by asking peoples opinions.

Trump LOVES polls, and probably trusts them too.

Yea, I think they inflate the numbers trying to convince people they may as well vote for the candidate they are supporting because there's nothing to be done to stop them from winning anyway. Sorta seems that way.

It does not appear to be working anymore. Too many people are now on to their manipulative shenanigans.

And because some people are apparently irretrievable hammerheads, Elizabeth Warren has come out today insisting that the debate in the current presidential contest should be focused on "Climate change".
Warren backs calls for climate focused debate
This the day after the Australian Labor party lost what was widely regarded as a lock-down, sure-thing, "unloseable" election, in which they had made "Climate change" the centerpiece of their general election campaign.

What is wrong with these people? Will they never learn?

Interesting summary of the Australian election result and " the Left's empathy deficit."
Published on the day polling in the working class heartland of Wales,UK shows a huge collapse in support for Labour which is now the party of the metropolitan
Sandalistas.
