The Kool-aid stand opens at 3am…

Looks like a ’Cargo Cult’ may have bedded in as well…
Over the course of two hours on Tuesday – with the world’s media and bleary-eyed Trump diehards across the United States tuning in – Assange and other WikiLeaks officials railed against “neo-McCarthyist hysteria,” blasted the mainstream press, appealed for donations and plugged their books (“40 per cent off!”).
But what they didn’t do was provide any new information about Clinton – or about anything else, really…
…That didn’t go over well with Trump backers who had stayed up through the night, thinking they’d be watching live the unveiling of the death blow to the Clinton campaign.
Assange, as it turns out, had taken a page from Trump’s own playbook by drawing an audience with a tease, only to leave those tuning in feeling that they’d been tricked.
InfoWars, the pro-Trump and virulently anti-Clinton media vehicle launched by Texas radio host Alex Jones, had touted the WikiLeaks press conference as “historic” and promised that “the Clintons will be devastated.”
Before Assange took the stage, Jones – who broadcast through the wee hours of the American morning – told viewers and listeners he was so excited he was worried his heart couldn’t stand it.
But by the end, Jones realised he’d been played – or in his words, “#wikirolled”.
They reap as they have sown
...and surely Fox TV must be a crime against humanity (and sanity).
The terrible, frightening Trump is likely to win because so many possible Hillary voters can’t vote
Perhaps Obama could use one last Executive Order to ban future Executive Orders - just in case.

To be honest Trump sounds like he may have medication problems as well.
Donald Trump's campaign announced Saturday evening that the candidate would soon deliver a nine-sentence critique of comments Hillary Clinton made months ago about many of the millennials supporting her primary rival, Bernie Sanders. It was an attempt to latch onto a new headline in hopes of finally escaping the controversies that had consumed his week.
It didn't work.
It took Trump nearly 25 minutes to read the brief statement because he kept going off on one angry tangent after another - ignoring his teleprompters and accusing Clinton of not being "loyal" to her husband, imitating her buckling at a memorial service last month, suggesting that she is "crazy" and saying she should be in prison. He urged his mostly white crowd of supporters to go to polling places in "certain areas" on Election Day to "watch" the voters there. He also repeatedly complained about having a "bum mic" at the first presidential debate and wondered if he should have done another season of The Apprentice."
I wasn’t talking about you!
But damn, I thought I'd finally found a hat that suited me...
smart arse middle classes.
Guilty as charged - but fair enough, your point is taken.
Saturday Night Live - Alec Baldwin nails Trump
confederacy of dunces?
Like millions of others, she believed that President Barack Obama was a Muslim. And like so many she had gotten to know online through social media, she also believed that he was likely gay, that Michelle Obama could be a man, and that the Obama children were possibly kidnapped from a family now searching for them.
“So beautiful,” Melanie said as Ivanka Trump walked onto the convention stage to introduce her father, and soon the soaring score of the movie Air Force One was blasting through the TV. Melanie sat up straighter. This is what she had been waiting for.
The 'genius' is out of the bottle...
The New York Times on Sunday published "a very, very good story for Donald Trump," Chris Christie said on Fox News Sunday. Rudy Giuliani called him an "absolute genius" on ABC's This Week. And Trump himself weighed in, saying he was singularly qualified to fix a system he may have exploited.
"I know our complex tax laws better than anyone who has ever run for president and am the only one who can fix them," Trump tweeted on Sunday, just five weeks ahead of the election.
an official designation as the “edgy and creative” zone.
