    The ABC (Always Be Cowards) will push the narrative no-matter-what. You only need to read their article on Hunters Laptop to know how low they are in pushing lies and falsity.

  2. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    This headline could be a sign the msm are starting to realise how irrelevant they have become

  3. That is quite the headline. So doing better than previous debate is a sign he is in trouble.

  4. Snoopy

    Is the quality of Lipson’s ‘analysis’ the reason why TheirABC is sending Sour Sarah and Michael Rowland over to report on the election?

  5. Oh come on

    Just saw this. Hilarious!

    I’m not sure what it’s a sign of. Let me go check the horoscopes.

    A “sign”?

    “The Collected Political Wisdom of the LSM, 2020” is going to be a real thigh-slapper if it ever gets published.

    Trump was clearly restraining himself in a way he wasn’t in the first debate. That could be because he thinks he’s in trouble, or more likely because of the negative feedback from all directions to his first debate performance.

    So the headline isn’t quite as bad as it looks.

  8. Oh come on

    Don’t forget that most journalists are very stupid people with little ability to think critically. I listened to about a minute of Chris Wallace’s post debate analysis and it was incredibly facile. These people genuinely seem to think that a politician promising to spend money on something/pass a law that does whatever is a policy discussion!

    Remember Pocahontas’s campaign had the silly ‘she’s got a plan for that’ slogan and she was lauded by the media for having this incredibly broad and detailed policy platform? It was nothing of the sort! It was just a very long wish list. And if anyone asked her ‘do you have a plan to deal with [insert literally any leftist concern, no matter how obscure], she’d say she did. Of course she did! Not one journalist tried to press her on details (probably because they couldn’t – she could just make up some bullshit and they’d believe it).

    The editors of Pravda would be embarrassed by this level of truth-twisting.

    That’s because Trump isn’t a man who willingly moderates his behaviour. And you don’t change tactics when you’re on a winner.

    You also don’t look at your watch if you think you’re winning the debate.

    The ABC view of Trump is that he is damned if he does; damned if he doesn’t.

    The Democrats handed their 2016 presidential nomination to a the matriarch of a major crime family and in 2020 they handed the nomination to the patriarch of yet another crime family, so I’m betting that in 2024 they’ll hand the nomination to a tranny MS-13 gang member.

    Sounds familiar.
    That’s pretty much what The Chook is running with in Queensland.
    She’s even Got A Plan to build a second Bruce Highway. LOL.

    The term “clutching at straws “comes to mind .
    How any rational person could believ tgat a lying ,cheating corrupt demented pisce of shit like Paedo Joe could win the voters escapes me .
    The phrase “Trump Derangement Syndrome ” sounds about right .
    These people actually believe the crap the corrupt swampies spew out endlaessly more fool them .

  14. A Lurker

    The Democrats handed their 2016 presidential nomination to a the matriarch of a major crime family and in 2020 they handed the nomination to the patriarch of yet another crime family…

    Like a fish, an organisation rots from the head down.

    The last squeaky clean Democrat President was Carter and, before him, Truman.

    Don’t forget that most journalists are very stupid people with little ability to think critically.

    Not only is that observation 100% accurate, most journalists whose arrogant knowall ideology has made toddler-level stupid and unable to think critically also think most of the electorate, who keep disobeying their voting commandments, are too stupid to vote.

    That is so lacking in self-awareness they could be any one of the Cat’s leftard trolls.

    Trump sets the tempo and Hiden follows. Trump interrupts and then so does Hiden. Trumpster doesn’t and Hiden follows.

    Trump is closing the gap, but is it too late?
    If he pulls off a miraculous victory against all odds, Friday’s presidential debate will have been crucial.
    By GREG SHERIDAN

    Trump will win comfortably.
    Nothing miraculous.
    Against all odds? Yeah, not like he did anything with the economy, like lowest unemployment for 50 years.

    Looks like the Baldrick Planning Company has won the contract for the left wing parties they all have cunnibg plans .
    Baldrick would have had his work cur out trying to describe his cunning plans to a demeted drop kick like Paedo Joe ,be a bit like explaining the theory of relativity to your dog .
    Joe is not the sharpest , rat cunning but stupid .
    You want millions in bribes , to be as rich as clintons and obama ,you want to distance yourself from the money so you get your drug addled son to do it for you ,yes put your trust in drunks or druggies ,not a bit clever. .I never took a penny ,but the ,wife and family did all right . He might have taken US dollars .

    The Trump Team needs to get some good campaign ads on Energy.

    JC:

    Who gives the impression of stronger leadership qualities, the follower or the leader?

    The leader of course. Just like Dan Andrews does at his press conferences.

    If only that translated into stronger actual leadership…

  22. Oh come on

    Here’s what else “it could be” (or almost certainly is):

    In preparing for the second debate, Trump and his team analysed the first debate, considered the new rules the debate commission was imposing, and created a debate strategy based on whatever they concluded. Biden’s carers would have done exactly the same thing. It’s pretty obvious. No silly rationale required.

  23. JC

    The leader of course. Just like Dan Andrews does at his press conferences.

    If only that translated into stronger actual leadership…

    We’re talking about a debate, you imbecile. A debate has two or more people involved. A debate isn’t what Hunchback does. Lord, you’re a dickhead.

    They can save their money. Hiden did himself like a dinner in the producing states.

    Hmm, I dunno. He did admit to committing adultery…in his mind.

  26. Shy Ted

    David Lipson.
    Effete physical coward and girly man.

  27. The real conundrum for ABC jounos is “how do I analyse this without losing my echo-chamber friends?”.
    Also TheirABC sends more journos over because the weak-arse Federal Libs don’t know how to cut spending.

  28. Mark M

    Watching Planet America is great.
    Lots of chortling and snickering at crazy PDT.
    It’s a 2016 deja vu of failed pundit predictions all over again for Chas and John as Swampy Joe has it all wrapped up and russians planted the lap top.
    I mean, look at these polls.
    Chortle chortle, wink wink. What were those crazy deplorables thinking?

    They don’t get it.
    They are the joke.
    Watching the abc for the look on their faces for the second time in the USA election cycle as their pundit reputation is further diminished , if that is possile; priceless!
    Pass the cornpop.

  29. miltonf

    Not having watched the ABC for 10 years, Lipson is new to me. Strikes as a typically smug, entitled, lightweight.

  30. miltonf

    weak-arse Federal Libs don’t know how to cut spending.

    too true- the Liberal Party is not the friend of Joe Public. They showed their true colours by installing Trumble and by their comments on Trump.

  31. Cynic of A

    Oh Jeez, you could put this stuff up for hours coodntya?
    I mean, consider the exact opposite, “Biden lost the debate by a huge margin, which could be a sign he’s not in trouble.”
    One’s as good as the other.
    Still, ya gotta give credit where credit is due. A normal intelligent person would find it difficult to dig deep enough into the realms of absurdity, to come up with such a negative for a positive.

  32. Bruce

    There is, as usual, an old saying:

    “Be careful wishing for “strong leadership”; you might just get it; good and hard and often”. Most of the Twentieth Century is a salutary warning”.

    Individuals exhibiting strong personal self control and no obvious interest in “leading” are ruthlessly crushed by statists . They might be setting a good example.

  33. Daily llama

    What really annoys me more than an undigested sweet corn is how the ALPBC use MY money to give ME their analysis and opinions. If I don’t like a commercial news outlet (like a newspaper for eg), I can choose not to buy it. But the untermenschen of Ultimo get paid by me to endlessly propagandise a pile of pinko garbage, year in, year out. Didn’t someone on the conservative side once say of the ABC “it’s our enemies talking to our friends”?
    Oh well, as I’ve said before, it was a decade in remote Australia where all I could get was the ABC that turned me into a conservative so perhaps it’s money well spent.

    Taking things too literally again? I was referring to Dan versus the journalists.

  35. Robber Baron

    Every year, 24 hours per day, the ABC delights in giving the taxpayer a facial golden shower of Marxism.

  36. custard

    Incredibly this post of mine slipped past the moderators at the Paywallian earlier today. It was on Hendos piece about #theirABC

    #theirABC staff certainly have a glass jaw too if you dare to criticise them on Twitter. So far I have either been blocked or muted by David Lipson, Kathryn Diss, Louise 7 Nilligan, Jonathan Green and Barrie Cassidy blocked me for reminding him of his “the nightmare is over” tweet from his hopelessly wrong 2016 Presidential election prediction. The nightmare for the rest of us won’t be over until it is shutdown or made subscriber only.

  37. Hodor

    I don’t think the Donald really cares.

    If he doesn’t win he goes back to a pretty good wicket.

    Why cop all the shift from the corkheads?

    It can only mean he gives a shit.

    If it was me I’d tell em all to “eat a bag of dicks”

    The ABC meltdown and head explosions if Trump wins again would be a very large cherry on the cake – regular programming cancelled and replaced by sombre music (like Soviet media when a leader died…)?

  39. yarpos

    Poor old Lipson, he really had to dig deep for negative spin. Must have been an effort for him.

  40. Professor Fred Lenin

    Its simple really ,the American people are going to choose a semi demented career politician of 47 yearswith no accomplishments in a lifetime ,who takes bribes and is capo of a family of criminal bribe takers ,who continually lies and changes policy,who steals other peoples speeches as his own ,and who was 2ic of a corrupt left wing presidency which failed the people . Creepy Joe is a sterling example of left career politics . Hiw right the comrades at alpbc are ignoring elephants in the room ,if we ognore the facts they , might go away , “I never took a penny ” says Creepy Ignoring the fact the bribes were in US dollars .
    The elites opinions of the workers who l\keep them is arrogant and condescendin ,and gives you some idea of the type of drones they really are ,remeber joes saying “truth beats facts ” motto of the left .
    Oh and Shorten is odds on to win the election against Turnbull Light Scomo ,yeah right comrades .
