"Remember, it's a rigged system. It's a rigged election," said Donald Trump in New Hampshire on Saturday.
The stunned recoil in this city suggests this bunker buster went right down the chimney. As the French put it, "Il n'y a que la verite qui blesse." It is only the truth that hurts.
In what sense is the system rigged?
Consider Big Media -- the elite columnists and commentators, the dominant national press, and the national and cable networks, save FOX. Not in this writer's lifetime has there been such blanket hatred and hostility of a presidential candidate of a major party.
"So what?" They reply. "We have a free press!"
But in this election, Big Media have burst out of the closet as an adjunct of the regime and the attack arm of the Clinton campaign, aiming to bring Trump down.
Half a century ago, Theodore White wrote of the power and bias of the "adversary press" that sought to bring down Richard Nixon.
"The power of the press in America," wrote Teddy, "is a primordial one. It sets the agenda of public discussion; and this sweeping power is unrestrained by any law. It determines what people will talk about and think about -- an authority that in other nations is reserved for tyrants, priests, parties and mandarins."
On ABC's "This Week," Newt Gingrich volunteered on Sunday that, "without the unending one-sided assault of the news media, Trump would be beating Hillary by 15 points."
On this one, Newt is right.
With all due respect, as adversaries, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are not terribly formidable. Big Media is the power that sustains the forces of globalism against those of Americanism.
Is the system rigged? Ask yourself.
For half a century, the U.S. Supreme Court has systematically de-Christianized and paganized American society and declared abortion and homosexual marriage constitutional rights.
Where did these unelected jurists get the right to impose their views and values upon us, and remake America in their own secularist image? Was that really the Court's role in the Constitution?
How did we wind up with an all-powerful judicial tyranny in a nation the Founding Fathers created as a democratic republic?
There are more than 11 million illegal immigrants here, with millions more coming. Yet the government consistently refuses to enforce the immigration laws of the United States.
Why should those Americans whose ancestors created, fought, bled and died to preserve America not believe they and their children are being dispossessed of a country that was their patrimony -- and without their consent?
When did the country vote to convert the America we grew up in into the Third World country our descendants will inherit in 2042?
In the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a Congressional majority voted to end discrimination against black folks.
When did we vote to institute pervasive discrimination against white folks, especially white males, with affirmative action, quotas and racial set-asides? Even in blue states like California, affirmative action is routinely rejected in statewide ballots.
Yet it remains regime policy, embedded in the bureaucracy.
In 2015, in the Democratic primaries, the big enthusiastic crowds were all for 75-year-old Socialist senator Bernie Sanders.
We now know, thanks to leaked emails, that not only the superdelegates and the Obama White House but a collaborationist press and the DNC were colluding to deny Sanders any chance at the nomination.
The fix was in. Ask Sanders if he thinks the system is rigged.
If there is an issue upon which Americans agree, it is that they want secure borders and an end to trade policies that have shipped abroad the jobs, and arrested the wages, of working Americans.
Yet in a private speech that netted her $225,000 from Brazilian bankers, Hillary Clinton confided that she dreams of a "common market, with open trade and open borders" from Nome, Alaska, to Patagonia.
That would mean the end of the USA as a unique, sovereign and independent nation. But the American press, whose survival depends upon the big ad dollars of transnational corporations, is more interested in old tapes of the Donald on The Howard Stern Show.
As present, it appears that in 2017, we may get a government headed by Hillary Clinton, and an opposition headed by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.
Is that what the people were hoping for, working for, voting for in the primaries of 2016? Or is this what they were voting against?
Big money and the media power of the establishment elites and the transnationals may well prevail.
And if they do, Middle America -- those who cling to their bibles, bigotries and guns in Barack Obama's depiction, those "deplorables" who are "racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic," who are "not America" and are "irredeemable" in Hillary Clinton's depiction -- will have to accept the new regime.
But that does not mean they must love it, like it or respect it.
Because, in the last analysis, yes, Virginia, the system is rigged.

I am absolutely sick when I have to explain this to people at church and they ignore what I say. It is horrible and Hillary Clinton is a pathetic liar and has told so many lies, she forgets what lie she as told in the past! Why cannot some of these people see that? Now I know what it means in the Bible where God says, "They will be deaf and blind", he was not talking about the Atheist. He was talking about Christians who are lost souls.
Killary absolutely talked about caring so much for toddlers and then turned right around and said that abortion at 9 months was just fine because a mother might have life threatening issues. Well anytime you give birth you put your life at risk, but that is the wonderful thing about giving birth and bringing a new life into this world. I heard one doctor talk about this subject in length, and he said that in his 40 years of practice of delivering babies he never had the issue come up with a mother's life in danger to the point that they would even think of aborting a baby, let alone a fully grown baby. You know darn well they want it passed so they can actually abuse that and do what they want, more genocide of innocents. I work with Right To Life in my area, it is hard to see how many young women are mislead and taken down the path of abortion. I however, feel really good when we stand on street corners and sidewalks with our signs in a line and get thousands of beeps from by passing motorists.
Hillary sold her soul to the devil a long time ago....she doesn't know how to love anyone but herself! God help us, and keep on praying that he take over on this election when we have done as much as we can to show the corruption. I have been sharing the corruption constantly over the past few weeks, attending prayer vigils, and working for organizations who are doing the most good and donating what I can. I joined Kilroy Rising and am helping to share their organization which is the best of the best of our retired (and probably some of the good fired) military, including many Special Ops. They are now touring from Missouri to North Carolina and trying to educate people to get them to vote and let them know what is happening to our Country. They are on FB as well at https://www.facebook.com/KilroyRisingPAC/ I know Old Rooster knows about them because he was listening to the radio show they were on about one week ago. They are to be near my area in Ohio this weekend, and we will be attending.
One thing to remember, Scott Kesterson at Kilroy Rising said that it will get much worse as we near the election but don't let it discourage you. He also said that if we keep on doing the best we can and pray about it, God will bring good things. I have seen already some good things come from all of this, like the many millions of people waking up and talking about the elites and Global Government, which people never did before. Donald J. Trump has exposed the New World Order like never before! That is great, because now millions know who one enemy is and how they are controlling our government. God Bless America Again and God Bless everyone involved with saving America!
Trump missed his chance, when she said that. He should have interrupted her and said that if you have such a heart for toddlers why do you approve of abortion especially when the baby is being born. he missed a lot of opportunities last night. He made a good point. How is Hillary after all the corruption she is involved in over the last 30 years allowed to run for President.
In case anyone missed it here is a really good email from Podesta to Hillary R. Clinton....from WiKi Leaks, but as the news says, don't look at these as they are fake! https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/3774
Patricia and Michael - much of this silence (beyond the religious groups who simply do it for the money, those who have drifted away from God's True Word, and those who water down God's Word in order to draw in more people and keep the collection plates full) came about because of the Johnson Amendment that prevents Pastors from even discussing politics in their sermons. This is a law that Trump has stated MUST be overturned.
I agree Judith, but just because it is a Law the Clergy shouldn't obey it. How can any man made Law prevent a Priest or the Catholic Church from preaching God's word, which included is speaking out against Politicians and their immoral policies. God's Law trumps man's law all the time.
This law must be repealed - it has already been attempted in Houston, TX against the Pastors - thankfully, it did not succeed. Considering the leftist judges and thorough corruption of the judiciary, these churches would be bankrupted fighting the charges. No win situation, unfortunately.
Trump has already addressed the issue and said he will repeal the law that prohibits clergy from involving themselves in political speech.......
Yes, yet another reason to vote for Trump!
Amen Michael............the debate last night couldn't be a better distinction between righteous and evil mindset..........Hillary claimed she protected "toddlers" on one hand and supports Planned Parenthood and Partial Birth Abortion on the other. Lucifer, the queen of distortion, deception, and deceipt......Queen of lies.
Trump was clear and adamant on this issue.........he is pro life, anti-partial birth abortion, and will nominate Supreme Court justices that will be pro life.
Silence is consenting and the Church is consenting by their inaction to preach from the pulpit about Satan's evil in the form of this government. What do you expect when our Pope says "Who am I to Judge". We as Catholics listen to our Pope and what he says does effect the Catholic Church worldwide. His statement "who am I to judge" plants hesitation and questions for Catholic when they see immoral laws and Politicians. " Well I can't judge because that's what our Pope said.
Your Pope also said people should not be allowed to interpret the Bible on their own, without "guidance" from the priests. I simply cannot understand Catholicism. Your Pope stands in for Jesus/God and is literally worshiped by Catholics worldwide, which is so very wrong. Particularly when it is a fascist pope!!!! Personally, in my heart, I have to wonder if this current Pope is THE "False Prophet."
