Trump says the election is rigged: Conspiracy theory — or fact?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Donald Trump says the U.S. presidential election is rigged. And so the Democrats and the media say he’s crazy, undermining confidence in democracy.

Is he? Ask Bernie Sanders. He kept winning in the Democratic primaries. But for one thing, CNN’s debate questions were leaked to Clinton in advance, and not to Sanders.

These journalists aren’t just friends of Clinton. We now know they’re donors to Clinton, too.

And Clinton gave money to them:

Phil DeFranco says Clinton’s people approached all the big YouTube stars — including him — offering cash to endorse her.

The mainstream media has hidden, buried, ignored or deleted interviews with actual rape victims of Bill Clinton. Juanita Broaddrick made detailed accusations against Clinton in a 1999 interview with NBC — who then refused to air it, and still do.

And then there’s a new undercover video, released yesterday by Project Veritas, showing how the Democrats literally pay people to infiltrate Trump rallies to start fights.

So yeah. That Trump. So paranoid.

This election totally isn’t rigged…

NEXT: Senior Townhall.com columnist Kurt Schlicter comes on to discuss the state of the United States election, and the divide between Left and Right.

His timely new novel "People's Republic" has been called “a thought-provoking action thriller set against the backdrop of a shattered America.”

THEN: I'm joined by author Raymond Ibrahim ("Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians").

Ibrahim, the Judith Friedman Rosen fellow at the Middle East Forum, talks about the startling news that Hungary has established an Office for Persecuted Christians.

FINALLY: Your emails and tweets to me!

The problem is that Republicans play the game like gentlemen. One Democrat trick is to round up street people, give them cigarettes and the ask them to vote Democrat. They then bus them to the polls. IMO, bussing anyone outside your family to the polls should be illegal.

When will purposefully manipulating / damaging / stealing / distorting / threatening / the National Political Election process, a critical part of an effective democracy, become treason? I suppose whenever honorable political leadership and genuine citizens face the facts, show some courage and stand up for what is right. Too bad most of those folks have succumbed to intimidation and threats. Do you know of any of them?

Andrew yes they are true, go cry like a child now!

@andrew Stephenson: There seems to be some confusion even among the players about which emails and stories people are talking about. The Wikileaks have been coming out daily and it is the media that has shifted away from them to talk about Trumps lewd language. Then there has been the emails from the FBI which weren’t leaked but obtained by Freedom Of Information Act by a request from Judicial watch. Governor Howard Dean on MSNBC tried to claim the emails were made up leaked by the Russians when the Anchor Thomas Roberts had to correct him. This isn’t Wikileaks this is an unnamed FBI official.

- This vote rigging has been going on for a long time. The ACORN scandal showed dead people turning up on voter lists. This is why Clinton is running, the Clintons do this better than anyone. The globalists want control of the Supreme court so they can start the process of eliminating the 1st & 2nd amendments. If nothing else, Trump’s run has showed just how corrupt Clinton, the Democrats & the mainstream media is.

- I’ll have to get Kurt’s book – sounds good.

- Good for Hungary – time to stop pretending that this mass migration has anything to do with being a humanitarian. The real refugees are being ignored.

- Given the desperation of the Democrats & mainstream media I’d say this election is still very much up in the air. They’re manipulating the polls to make it look plausible if they get away with stealing this election.

If it wasn’t for the O’Keefe videos the sheeple of the U.S. would have no idea how corrupt their system is. If there was more journalists doing their jobs instead of just cheerleading maybe politicians and the MSM wouldn’t be so corrupt. Keep it up Mr. O’Keefe!!

Andrew Stephenson funny how Trump tapes and accusers seem to appear once leaks are put out. "
As I recall, the Trump tape went up on the Friday, and built from there… the Wikileaks went out the following Monday.

Andrew it is not a theory, just because you deny something that does not make it untrue. "
No, it being untrue makes it untrue. My opinion on it is irrelevant.

I can’t wait until its over. The west is going to have to start paying attention to what is going on before it hits. I can only hope it is with Trump.

Funny how Obama can meddle in our election but if Putin has something to do with exposing the truth he is bad. HYPOCRISY!!

Andrew Stephenson funny how Trump tapes and accusers seem to appear once leaks are put out. And sorry but they waited until it was too late for them to change her as candidate. And the emails are true , the anti Trump stuff is well known, the medias bias is well known, it has been apparent for many years now, you act like it is something new. Too bad someone else had to do the medias job eh? Now please spare me the tinfoil BS as Hillary has said vast right wing conspiracy many times. And the Clinton crap has been going on for decades now. Sorry to burst your pathetic bubble.
commented 2016-10-19 01:06:23 -0400
Recent video proof from Project Veritas proves beyond any doubt that the election, polls, and voter registration itself is rigged in America. Only die hard and stupid supporters of Hillary think otherwise, or try to convince people that no rigging is taking place.

Penson and Stephenson,
You morons lie like the media!
When the truth sits in front of your faces you stick your head up your asses like the good little " Trudope Rectal Syndrome Sufferers " that you are.
If the head of the " Clinton Criminal Cartel " gets elected as President, there will be war with Russia, and possibly mass civil unrest/rebellion inside America itself.
If that happens, I will make it my life mission to see Fagboy beta males like yourselves, get sent to the front lines first!
Instead of sacrificing the cream of the crop like we have done in the last world wars!

Those already in an elected position, President and Vice President, including spouses, should not be allowed to campaign for candidates in an election.
If your term has expired and you’re out of office, then fine.
I’m sure the US citizens don’t appreciate paying for Obama and Biden to fly all over the US on Hillary’s behalf.

Andrew sorry if the truth hurts. If the dems are so damn respectable and honest and going to win then why do they need to resort to subterfuge and lies? You are as pathetic as Penson sometimes. "

Subterfuge, hmm? Hang on, let me go wrap some foil around myself, this is a Trumpster level whopper of a conspiracy theory: I wonder why Assange just happens to be releasing his Clinton files three days after a potential Trump-crushing scandal surfaces? Just how much do the Russians want Trump in the white house, and how much more aggressive can they get to make sure it happens?

Saw James O’Keefe’s videos on O’Reilly tonight, so they are getting some play out there.
Something I heard on Fox this morning which I found interesting was that there are 4,000,000 dead people on the voters list, apparently Bush had the lists cleaned off while he was in office but once Obama took over it suited the Dems to leave it alone. There are cases pending in court because of this.

Obamas on CNN saying Trump is whining about nothing and conservative websites need to be shut down. If there’s one person you can trust it’s him. God have mercy on his and hillarys souls should they repent. But I’m sure they won’t recollect their discretion

Oh, yeah .There we go. Breitbart’s on the case. It MUST be true, then. They totally wouldn’t make something up to support their completely non existent links to the Trump campaign.
