    The for-profit corporate media have their own agenda to make the election close by sensationalizing everything negative on Clinton while dismissing or ignoring much of the Trump revelations. Their motives are purely capitalistic...profit. The closer the election, the more money they make. They are not collaborating with "The Feds".

    Schmidt, I did make an reference to what Hitler did. In the Netherlands you had the NSB they would inform the Gestapo of who they should kill or put in concentration camps. Actually they were the "traitors" who after the war were procecuted. The same here. Trump has read "Mein Kampf" that is sure; he even boosts that his ancesters were German. Yes fanatic Republicans have infiltrated the whole government as well the "media" and will do everything to help their sick Hitler like program to succeed, just like the "traitors" in WWII.

    The people do not want media doing the job of what was once called "the press" in the first amendment. They want infotainment because they have been conditioned to want infotainment. Thom Hartmann rages about Reagan and the elimination of the fairness doctrine followed by newsrooms becoming profit centers in the electronic media as well as newspapers gutting their own reporters. Bird's theorem is evident everywhere.

    for anyone who doesn't know bird's theorem:

    "we the people" are stupid.

    ""we the people" are stupid."

    Go to any supermarket and look at the shelving allocated to health and healthier foods.

    The "Feds" here means The FBI. Here is the proof that Feds support Tramp:


    Though the media show Clinton has a two digital leading, Trump says, 'I actually think we're winning' He
    rejects polls as inaccurate: ‘All the fair polls have us winning’. He is arbitrary. What makes Trump so confident? Because he knows he is candidate of the FBI. They are the ruler of U.S.

    To support Trump's campaign, FBI made its first-ever political bias.

    Ex-FBI Asst Director Makes First-Ever Political Endorsement for Trump With Emotional Plea to America


    BY JUSTEN CHARTERS

    With the election only a few weeks out, James Kallstrom, the former Assistant Director of the FBI, has decided to endorse Trump.

    In an interview on Fox News, Kallstrom started out by making it clear that he has a “low opinion of all politicians, except for a few.”

    As I always said - email is a tool for FBI to extort:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI informed Congress Friday it is investigating whether new emails that have emerged in its probe of Hillary Clinton's private server may contain classified information. The FBI said in July its investigation was finished.

    This is hugely corrupt and you can bet your ass nobody will do a damn thing. Proof that anything can be stolen. An inside job. Barack, don't they work for you ? Take control.

    Kallstrom.... Keith Olbermann did a story on him and it was not good at all.

    Every part of the media tried to warn you. Even Fox news (god even Fox news people, Megan Kelley was blinking SOS). Died in the wool, hard core Republicans warned you. A sitting President warned you. Other countries' leaders warned you. You knew what he was, you didn't need to be told. You (America) have no one to blame, but yourselves. It would be one thing if it was a party line vote that got him in office, but it wasn't. Then at least you could say well all the Republicans vote and all the Democrats voted and we just lost, but that is not what happened is it. There is no way that Trump won Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan without Democratic votes going to Trump or staying home. So don't blame the media. We may get to another choice. You will either fight to uphold the Constitution (all of it) or you won't, there will be no middle ground.
