We often criminalize behavior that is normal – Donna Brazile on ABC’s ‘This Week’ in reference to Hillary Clinton giving access to the State Department in exchange for 6-figure donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Thank goodness for Wikileaks and the DNC and Podesta email dumps. There’s no question that the mainstream media is colluding with the Clinton Campaign to tip the election in HRC’s favor. For Obama to accuse Trump of ‘whining’ about it is absurd. But, then again, Obama’s speech last week sounded like something out of ’1984′ or Goebbels’s Nazi Party Propaganda playbook. Moreover, Obama’s silence is defeaning with regard to HRC’s overt corruption and criminality per the Podesta emails.
As for whether or not the media is rigged, follow the money. According to analysis from the Center For Public Integrity, 430 people who work in journalism have donated almost $400,000 in total to both Presidential candidates. HOWEVER, these 430 journalists have given approximately $375,000 to HRC and roughly $15,000 to Trump. In other words, journalists have given 25x more money to HRC than to Trump. Quite frankly, journalists should be forbidden from contributing to any political campaign – as should Federal Reserve officials, who are also throwing wads of money at HRC.
