Remember during the Republican primary season when the completely out-of-touch GOP establishment, along with professional pollsters and the liberal mainstream media, kept insisting that Donald Trump had a ceiling of voters that would limit any chance of securing the nomination?
It turns out that the ceiling for President-elect Trump is located in the Oval Office at the White House.
With its reliance on rigged polls (with a few exceptions) that showed Hillary Clinton as an easy winner in the general election, the media is now describing Trump’s victory in yesterday’s presidential election as stunning.
“Pollsters and election modelers suffered an industry-shattering embarrassment at the hands of Donald Trump on Tuesday night. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, had long said the polls were biased against him. His claims — dismissed and mocked by the experts — turned out to be true,” The Hill explained.
We know from WikiLeaks that all this time, many of these reporters — including, but not limited to, CNN — were totally in the tank for the Clinton campaign.
Now, these same never-learn media outlets are relying on “exit polls” to draw conclusions about the electorate.
In addition to engaging in shameless pro-Clinton propaganda (which some describe as “gaslighting”) in an attempt to artificially inflate her nonexistent popularity, many New York and D.C. journalists were simply too lazy to examine the polling data closely or go out in the field and do some actual on-the-ground reporting. Plus, they were too busy obsessively blowing any Trump campaign miscue, real or imagined, way out of proportion, perhaps with talking points gifted to them from by Clinton operatives.
The same phenomenon occurred among the unhinged #NeverTrump conservative cohort who were weirdly invested in a Hillary Clinton victory despite their vast ideological differences with the Democrat nominee.
While no source is 100 percent accurate, any Internet user following the work of Bill Mitchell, Mike Cernovich, Gateway Pundit, and The Conservative Treehouse, among others, over the months was aware that the polls were grossly oversampling Democrats, adopted flawed modeling, and also disregarding the massive and enthusiastic crowds that came out to see Trump at his rallies.

Parenthetically, censorship and shadow banning on the big pro-Clinton social networks were also in play during the campaign.
Apart from the fundamentally flawed “Donnie Ceiling” prediction, the list of media hoaxes perpetrated by news agencies, pollsters, and pundits in their 24/7, hell-bent effort to get Hillary Clinton elected is rather extensive.
Here are a few.
- Trump’s campaign is crumbling/self-destructing
- Trump will drop out
- Trump could lose Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Texas, or Utah (according to hoax polls)
- Trump has no ground game
- Trump’s campaign staff is too small
- Trump isn’t spending enough money on commercials
- Trump controversies would cost the GOP its majority control of Congress
- No woman, Hispanic, or African-American will vote for Trump
- Trump doesn’t provide specific policy positions
- Hillary Clinton is winning early voting
- Hillary Clinton has a blue-state firewall
- Celebrities will actually move to Canada or another country
Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit suggests that at least some of the groping allegations against Trump may have been debunked, but it remains to be seen if — beyond splashy headlines — any of the accusations will be adjudicated in a court of law.

The person who writes under the byline “Sundance” at The Conservative Treehouse believes that the corporate media and its pollsters deliberately engaged in prevarication as a way to (unsuccessfully after the votes were counted) prevent a Donald Trump victory.
“They lied and manipulated their data in a concerted effort to intentionally falsify reality. There should be no doubt, EVER, in the mind of any political observer as to what took place within the expressed and broadcasted polling which fueled over two years of broadcast news. The media intentionally lied…They did not make mistakes; they did not operate from the wrong assumptions. These organizations, as part of the larger corporate objectives from those who fund their endeavors, lied.”
Trump made a lot of over-the-top comments during the campaign, at times seemed to be winging it, and his debating skills leave a lot to be desired. Like any president, he might disappoint his followers to some degree in how he carries out his mandate. But none of that justifies the media hoaxing that was in play since the New York real estate mogul entered the Republican primary in June 2015.
The Democrats are “a party more comfortable coercing Americans who see the world differently than in convincing them. It is a movement propelled by a liberal punditry that’s stopped debating and resorted to smearing millions they disagree with,” David Harsanyi of The Federalist wrote this morning.

Opined Michael Goodwin of the New York Post: “Trump voters had the courage of their conviction to go against all their betters, all the poobahs and petty potentates of politics, industry and, above all, the fraudulent hucksters of the national liberal media…No candidate in modern times and perhaps ever has suffered such abuse at the hands of the dominant culture. Virtually every day, nearly all the front pages and broadcasters in the entire country vilified him in an attempt to destroy him.”
Added Austin Bay in the Observer, “In strategic terms — a fancy way of saying the long run — Trump’s stunning defeat of the corrupt mainstream media may be his most important election victory.”
