    Commiefornia can swing it all the way back to Clinton though, worth 55 seats.

    Forsaken by SMOD, our last best hope lies with San Andreas.

  2. JC says:

    I hope Comey has put himself in witness protection or has applied for asylum at the Russian Embassy.

    Comey is gone and I reckon Uncle George is in trouble too. If he’s funneled cash illegally to left wing groups, he’s gonsky.

    NY Tomes predictor pendulum has maxed out at >95% chance of a Trump victory.

    NY Times forecasting college votes at Trump 294 – Clinton 244.

    Broward county all precincts in.

    Florida is over

  6. Up The Workers! says:

    Thank God for that Supreme Master Tactician, Juliar Gillard.

    Such was her honesty, reliability and competence, that the former law-firm Partner helped make Slater & Gordon what it is today.

    Her efforts were so well appreciated that the other Partners clubbed together and awarded her a Blundstone Boot just before she left the building.

    As Prime Minister, her deft Leadership as well as her loyalty, scientific, economic, industrial and meteorological knowledge were so respected by her fellow A.L.P. Caucus colleagues, that they too chipped in and presented her with a SECOND Blundstone Boot just before she left the building.

    Now her impeccable honesty, competence and campaign-management style is no doubt so appreciated by the Clintons and Goldman Sachs, that they will no doubt give her a third Blundstone Boot.

    She just keeps racking up all these awards.

    ONLY in the A.L.P. could a person be SO talented.

  7. miltonf says:

    Go Donald!

  8. If she wins California, she wins the election.

    Have a look at this map – Trump has annihilated her in most of the States he’s won.

  9. Motelier says:

    Is watching Channel 7/ CNN. LOL

    Mark Reilly is really having a hard time.

    But.

    The dudes on CNN are so biased towards the old crone. She can win Michigan. LOL And. Florida is still undecided.

  17. JC says:

    hahahhahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Fox News dude reckons Trump became more disciplined towards the end because his campaign took his twitter feed away.

    He may win, but he’s still an undisciplined fatmouth New Yorker.

  18. Tom says:

    Antony Green now says Trump has enough red states till to be declared in the bank and he’s calling it victory for President Trump.

  19. Shauno says:

    Heaps of Journalists have been triggered I saw a couple nearly in tears lol. Peter Van Onselen said democracy has this wrong.

    Michelle is an attractive man.

    Stimpy I know where you’ve been, don’t go back or we may lose you forever

  21. johanna says:

    Switching between the channels for election coverage. It’s a hoot.

    The talking heads, who have been thoroughly beclowned, all look very grave, like they are Winnie Churchill announcing Britain’s entry into the war or something. I guess that is how it feels for them.

    Every one of these overpaid, talentless gurus got it wrong. It’s very enjoyable to watch.

  22. John Comnenus says:

    Bill Kristol trying to keep a smile on.

    Hes crying on the inside

  23. Leigh Lowe says:

    Is watching Channel 7/ CNN. LOL

    Mark Reilly is really having a hard time.

    Shit happens, Mark.
    Shit happens.

    NEW ELECTION FRED

  28. Shauno says:

    Wish I had a list of the people that said they were going to leave the US if Trump gets in lol.

  29. calli says:

    Just got back from the nursery. Bought some celebratory plants and an enormous red pot for the front porch.

    Am I being premature? ?

  30. Ant says:

    This is truly incredible.

    It’s going to be amazing if Trump does this just to see the death stares on all lefty faces.

    It’s already started here at work, while my year 9 daughter at school is texting me messages about her friends fearing that the world is going to explode.

  31. Peter P;

    I put $150 on Trump when odds were 4.5

    I put $5k on Trump at 5:1
    Think I’ll buy some champers.

  32. Pat K says:

    Trump lead in early counting in Washington state.

  33. Up The Workers! says:

    I reckon if Trump wins this election, his first job on the day after his inauguration next January, will be to formally invite Julian Assange to finally crawl out from under the stretcher-bed in the first-floor ladies loo off the back stairs at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and Officially take up residence under a brand new stretcher-bed in the first-floor ladies loo by the back stairs in the White House.

  34. Tom says:

    Good on you, Ant. This has been tough for you.

  35. JC says:

    I’m still laughing about the the Fox commenter saying the Trump campaign took his twitter feed away in order to show more discipline.

    The fatmouth.

  36. twostix says:

    What about you minty you total loser?

    Seems your sexual fantasy of “angry white men” finally being abolished from the US by you loser gamma males importing millions of mexican men remains your fantasy.

  37. JC says:

    It’s already started here at work, while my year 9 daughter at school is texting me messages about her friends fearing that the world is going to explode.

    That’s what my kid said in NY. Everyone hates Trump… all her friends hate Trump, so how could he possibly win. Female herd instinct there.

    The little wretch refused to vote for him on my behalf.

  38. rafiki says:

    JC at 3.12. This from a NYT live feed: “Trump just spoke briefly with one of our colleagues, and appears to be in a good mood. He did, however, take time to divert from the brief discussion to ask the colleague to relay his deep displeasure with a story that four of us wrote in Monday’s paper about the final days of his campaign.
    Among other things, he insisted he did not cede his Twitter account.”
    I imagine that several others will feel the effects of Trump expressing his deep displeasure.

  39. John Comnenus says:

    Slipping beyond reach for Hillary according to Spears. Lets get some more von wrongleson

  40. louis says:

    My workplace already has heads imploding.

    What amazes me is these people have no knowledge at all of the Clinton scandals, everything they know is about how bad Trump is. Yet they consider themselves informed.

  41. rebel with cause says:

    Cheers President Trump, you were too good to ignore at 5 to 1.

  42. Vicki says:

    Still not feeling triumphant until the total count in the West in. But looking good with small count in Nevada & Utah, & Wisconsin at the moment amazingly for Trump.

  43. Ant says:

    Among other things, he insisted he did not cede his Twitter account.

    That’d be like ceding his virginity all over again.

  44. Caveman says:

    Game on donkey kong. Fukn aye.

  45. Yohan says:

    Fox News dude reckons Trump became more disciplined towards the end because his campaign took his twitter feed away.

    And it’s totally true.

    About 70% of the issue with Trump seeming temperamentally unfit for office came not from his rallies, but from his twitter rants. It made him seem utterly un-presidential.

  46. Geriatric Mayfly says:

  51. Tailgunner says:

    Oh my god that will be amazing.

    Yes,we need an Election Day “The Project- w/Waleed” thread.
    🙂

  52. Shauno says:

    David Spears is totally out of touch as well. He just said Trumps Middle East plans are against all the Generals which is not the case at all. Most of the Generals support Trump but they have to keep quiet about it. They haven’t liked what they have had to do under Obama at all.

  53. Confused Old Misfit says:

    I’m having almost as much fun watching the reactions of my progressive rellies in N. America as watching the results.

  54. Tailgunner says:

    It’s glorious, yo.
    MAGA

  55. Shauno says:

    Trump just won Florida

  56. one old bruce says:

    “Presidential” – It’s like people think they’re casting West Wing II or something.

    It’s a job and selection should be based on past experience, plus running the gruelling campaign gauntlet, and Trump came through that outstandingly. Physically and psychologically he’s clearly a powerhouse of a leader, few could match his stamina and stability under pressure.

  57. Up The Workers! says:

    WHODATHUNKIT???

    EXACTLY the same thing happened to poor Gough Whitlam back in 1975!

    How could this happen once again when ALL the experts and ALL the Press said otherwise???

    Is it Mal Frasers’ fault?

    Is it John Kerrs’ fault

    That’s what happens when the “elites” totally overlook that insignificant little element called the voters.

    While all the ‘luvvies’ are all so starry eyed with admiration of their Party crooks, thieves, liars and incompetents, the voters found the stench of corruption sickening enough to apply the electoral “Drain0”, and flushed the whole stinking lot of them.

    As a famous man once said:

    “Politicians are like babies’ nappies.
    Both need to be changed frequently – and for EXACTLY the same reason!”

  58. Peter P says:

    I put $5k on Trump at 5:1
    Think I’ll buy some champers.

    Whoa, looks like you just made 20k, congrats!

    1 x bottle of River Sands Black Magic vintage port from St George.

    No, 25k.

  72. JC says:

    I must say Gunner’s predictions all the way through were uplifting and invigorating. The blind faith was a marvel to see. He should be made the official Cat Pollster.

    I bought a good swag of E-mini Futures when it was around 17,580. I didn’t buy enough because there’s plenty of time. But I’m up some okay money at this point. Asian market always get it wrong.

  78. Leigh Lowe says:

    For those anticipating a Trump victory speech, I hope he opens up with …
    “Whichever candidate you supported, I ask you to accept and respect the result …”

    That would be master-trolling after he has said he may not accept the result.

  79. J.H. says:

    LOL…. Channel 9 is like a funeral…. Laurie Oakes is a scream to watch.

  80. JC says:

    If it goes below 600 point loss I’m buying more later. But I have to go see my folks at the nursing home as that takes precedence.

  81. Top Ender says:

    From the Oz:

    Sombre mood at Australian embassy in DC on Tuesday night, as throngs of Australian international public servants, diplomats, corporate professionals and their guests digest the news that the arch-populist Donald Trump is the likely next president off the US.

    I have no idea what E-min futures are, but I’ll take a gross, thanks.

    ABC has a beta male hyperventilating his head off. Giving the Dem. rats a big serve, especially those Union members who crossed to the dark side. Ullman and Rowlands all ears, and this fellow is helping to sweeten the bitter pill.

  84. JC says:

    This election is a copybook of the 1980 Reagan win.
    The outsider comes in fighting with the party establishment.

    The economy is going to do splendid over time provided he doesn’t fuck up the Federal Reserve.

    “If it goes below 600 point loss I’m buying more later”

    Amen . But it wont last long.

    This will be Brexit MkII.

  89. The Vengeful Ghost of Fiona Watson's Moggie says:

    If he takes Michigan, he wins.

    Ahead in Michigan, 98% counted.

  90. Old Lucy says:

    My concern is that the public vote may count for little. As far as I can work out, there is no compulsion for the official Electoral College voters to follow the wishes of their state’s citizens. If the final count is close, I wonder how much pressure will be applied between now and the convention for enough of those EC voters to go rogue.

  94. Ant says:

    She’s going to f–king jail and taking a lot of her cronies with her.

    This would be just magnificent but it will hinge on Trump and his administration via the new DOJ following through.

    Getting a bit of flack at work but as I’ve said all along there is no way in hell Clinton should have even run for office given her corruption and criminality.

  95. Goodie…
    Make that 2 bottles of Ben Ean Moselle…

    Oh you are awful.

  96. Up The Workers! says:

    Hopefully, it won’t be long now before somebody in Canberra breaks out the two house-bricks, and keeping their thumbs well out of the way, removes Mal Jelly-back’s ‘Gold Mansacks’.

    Who will be Australia’s Donald Trump?

    Who will run the tape-measure over Juliar for one of those fashionable striped outfits that are all the rage in Yatala these days? If she plays her cards right, she might even end up lodging next-door to her criminal former A.L.P. Federal President, Munificent Mike Williamson, in that same exclusive A.L.P. “gated Community” where he has a long-term lease on the “Presidential Suite”.

    It is about time enquiries were made concerning the refund of the $100 million of taxpayers’ cash that went walkabout the week before she left office; and the $96 billion for Conjob’s N.B.N. And the $20 million which Williamson thieved from the H.S.U. and never bothered to return.

  97. From the Oz:

    Sombre mood at Australian embassy in DC on Tuesday night, as throngs of Australian international public servants, diplomats, corporate professionals and their guests digest the news that the arch-populist Donald Trump is the likely next president off the US

    Fire.them.all.

  98. Wild Guess: Trump declares an amnesty for the Clintons, but it’s too late – they have already fled the country and are hiding in Qatar with their ill-gotten gains.

  99. rebel with cause says:

    Brexit x1000

    How about all those election forecasters with 90%+ probability of Clinton win?

  100. Who will run the tape-measure over Juliar for one of those fashionable striped outfits that are all the rage in Yatala these days?

    Orange is the new black.

  101. 1234 says:

    Well, we had our whack job in Abbott, but after 14 months an empty chair got 37 votes and then he was on his way after, what was it, 18 months. But the States is stuck with Trump for four years. I wonder how long before their disillusionment sets in, particularly once he starts to stiff them. You get the politicians you deserve!

  102. 1234 says:

    What will be Trump’s first broken promise?

  103. Tel says:

    … but it’s too late – they have already fled the country and are hiding in Qatar with their ill-gotten gains.

    It was Obama who pioneered the executive privilege to be able to rain down drone fire on anyone, anywhere on Earth (including but not limited to US citizens) based on purely one man’s say so, without any checks and balances, nor even oversight from Congress.

    Ahhhh, just sayin’.

    This morning arch-buffoon Karl Stefanovic and Jabba were joking that the only way Trump was going to get to the White House was if the Clinton’s invited him for lunch.
    Haw, haw, haw, fuckwits.

    Exactly.
    A professional diplomat would have already done the ground-work with both parties to ensure they had a rails run with either administration.
    If DC is too tough a posting, we’ve got Damascus and Pyonyang.

    Is this the Amish voting late after milking the cows???

    I spent time in Amish county a few years ago. They are simply lovely people.

  113. Either every single one of my fellow thousands of employees are pro-Clinton, or Trump supporters are taking the piss. I’m betting the latter.

    OK – Will Melania redecorate the White House to look like the interior of the apartment in Trump Tower a la Versaille lol?

  118. Shauno says:

    What makes the likely victory for Trump even bigger than it is is the fact 95% of the media where against him. If it was a more fair 50% his victory would be even bigger.

  119. Mother Lode says:

    A professional diplomat would have already done the ground-work with both parties to ensure they had a rails run with either administration.

    Persactly.

    If they are telling us that it is going to be difficult for them, or that they will even be reluctant in their job, send them to a reliable progressive posting like Caracas.

    I wonder what the Pope is thinking? He’ll probably want to make Illary a Saint.

    He has some strange ideas.

  120. rafiki says:

    The chances that Australian DFA people in Washington will be fired must be nil. Another group who should (but won’t) go are the ABC newsreaders, opionistas and unfunnymen who have been sneering at Trump for weeks. I wonder whether Trump will call for a report from the Embassy here as to who might be worth talking to in Australia, and how the politicians behaved. Turnbull needs to pre-empt a problem by firing Julie Bishop for a start.

  125. Geriatric Mayfly says:

    What’s the bet the ABC will go spastic about all those American flags on the Rep. stage, now that the Collectives will have to shed their prophetic powers and opt for sniping at trivia. Abbott stood in front of seven Aussie banners, which sent the Collectives wild. There are eleventy Old Glories awaiting The D.

  126. Yohan says:

    Even with all the lefty ballot stuffing and vote fraud Trump won.

  127. 1234 says:

    I reckon Trump will break one of his promises in his acceptance speech – true to form. I just hope its not accepting the TPP. USA, get ready to be stiffed, and stiffed well!

    Looks like Trump has Wisconsin (and 270 EC Votes), meaning PA, MI and NH are irrelevant, although still in play (and Trump leading in each).

    It’s over.

    Trump insisted the election was rigged. Turned out that he was right.

    You can’t blame Assange for having a grudge against Hillary, being locked inside a small room for years… there’s only so much a man’s mind can take. Hillary should have known perfectly well what would happen.

    Assange must have downloaded ancient ninja training manuals and built himself up to almost superhuman powers on that treadmill of his. Slipping out at night, and paddling an inflatable coracle, Assange gradually reprogrammed each of the voting machines… his only chance to achieve the revenge he has secretly been working on for so many years (and incidentally avenge the death of the ninja master who wrote those training manuals, but that could have been merely a training exercise, unless perhaps we are supposed to think it was a training exercise, sorry I digress). It’s just like one of those old badly dubbed movies.

    So here’s my take on the actual Betfair current market (BF is a betting exchange where the market makes the odds without direct Bookie Guidance)……

    Just over $25 Million has been wagered in total thus far, with $9.7 Million on Hillary and $10.1 Million on Trump. The rest is on candidates who have dropped out, or who might get a go if one of the favs dies etc. Hillary is at $1.37; Trump $4.30.

    The thing to consider is why, with similar amounts on Trump and Hillary, they are not neck and neck. Why has the money not spoken? Why are market forces not doing their job in this case? Hmmmm…..

    The reason is as follows…..Hillary supporters are dumb, and overconfident. Instead of holding out for a better price (on Betfair you place an asking price, or else take the currently offered one if you are impatient), Hillary supporters are giving Trump backers massive “overs” as they stampede toward the financial and political precipice. Trump supporters, by contrast are not offering better odds to the Hillary camp to entice them to open their wallets since they know Hillary supporters are lemmings. In simple terms it’s another chapter for “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds”.

    #2052585, posted on June 9, 2016 at 4:22 pm

    Hillary started at $10 and is now $1.37. More than a million was taken between $2.02 and $1.93.
    That is about an 8% decrease in the price. For a dollar at $2.04 you might get $1.04 in profit; for a dollar at $1.93 you might get 93 cents profit= about 8% less. Someone gave them the chance to take their $1 Million at an ever decreasing return (for them, the Hillary backers) and they were so stupid that they accepted.Hillary backers took a quarter million at $1.40 and another quarter million at $1.39 and another quarter million at $1.38 and now it’s about a quarter million at $1.37. They are mad!

    What this means is that I offer $3700 for their $10,000. They however are oh-so-confident, that they will risk their $10,000 to try to get my $3700. WTF?

    I also explained that the relationship between odds and amount bet is very very close. Guys like Dot and JC etc do not have any actual experience of betting, so will always be wrong in the long run. I have explained what’s wrong with Hillary’s price, but they are incapable of understanding it. Too much is being paid for too little possible return.

    So why does Hillary have less on her than Trump but is at $1.37 whilst Trump is at $4+? Answer; Hillary backers are taking way under the true chance because they are thinking emotionally instead of rationally.. These are almost certainly blowhard know-nothings like Dot and JC.

    Trump backers are playing the Clinton backers for the buffoons they are. Not. A. F*cking. Clue.

    OK, so I’m as modest as always. I hope all Cats have done well out of this. I can now go on holidays for three or four weeks to lighten the saddle bags of all that gold Cheers.

    BTW. Even now, with Donald at $1.02 the win (ie 50-1 on, about to become 100% certain), Hillary still a has 2/3 rds of the money on her (=about $220 Million). How easily the suckers are parted from their money, eh? Crazy stuff.
