    Maybe all of the marginalized victims of globalism should wake up and realize:

    a) that those factory jobs aren't coming back. Manufacturing in the US is up 20% in the last five years, but manufacturing employment is only up 5%. Automation is only going to improve. The manufacturing sector is NEVER going to be the huge source of low-skill jobs that it used to be.

    b) that there are actually some benefits to globalism. Cheaper goods, countries being able to specialize, food from all over the world available all year round, and other things that we take for granted. Yes, there are negatives, like loss of jobs, but let's not pretend that there's nothing good about it.

    c) that the "rigged" system that they are so angry about is fully supported by the Republican Party Platform. The RPP literally says that money is speech, that political donations should not have limits, and that they shouldn't have to be disclosed. They are on the side of MORE money in politics and more dark money in politics. For anyone serious about getting money out of politics, voting GoP (especially in down ballot races) is a vote for the exact opposite.

    To be fair, I don't think Trump gives a shit about his party's platform, but the rest of his party does.

    We are supposed to take the work of a Russian sympathizer with Zero Hedge as a FUCKING SOURCE that Russia isn't hacking the US or the DNC? Are you fucking kidding me?

    You can call them criminals once Guiliani is investigated to find out which of your patriots went above the law.
    As if the FBI is actually going to investigate Giuliani, their too busy kissing his and Trump's ass. The sad thing is this isn't the first time the FBI has shown it's corruption.

    Actually no, the worst thing you can ever tell a young person is that he is 'clever'. Have you ever entertained the notion that perhaps people who are on the left or believe in progressive causes are actually not smart at all? How does it make you feel if you undertake the mental exercise of thinking 'what if this entire ideology is based upon pseudo-intellectualism that is simply meant to give people who believe in it the illusion of smartness?

    It isn't the entire FBI, and It isn't up to the FBI to investigate Giuliani, the Senate has called for an Inspector General.
    In the United States, an inspector general leads an organization charged with examining the actions of a government agency, military organization, or military contractor as a general auditor of their operations to ensure they are operating in compliance with generally established policies of the government, to audit the effectiveness of security procedures, or to discover the possibility of misconduct, waste, fraud, theft, or certain types of criminal activity by individuals or groups related to the agency's operation, usually involving some misuse of the organization's funds or credit. In the United States, there are numerous offices of inspector general at the federal, state, and local levels.

    Believe me Giuliani knows what it is and he is shaking in his boots right now wondering why the hell he ran his fool mouth.

    It never lied. People are unused to the truth, with candidates like Trump and Hillary lies per minutes being through the roof.

    And look at some replies here. As the election becomes more tense, a lot of people are losing their cool. A lot of exchanges has become truly unpleasant on the political thread.

    Except for all their bluster Wikileaks hasn't been able to come up with anything relevant without emails being deliberately misread.

    It's gone to the point where people actually think Hillary is not a corrupt individual, Trump cares about the little people, and the FBI is being partisan (or is influenced by Putin).

    Wikileaks is pretty much the only source of information that is actually reliable. Yet people still think Foxx/CNN are.

    Win or lose the level of hyperbole I am seeing is off the charts. I watched Maher's show last night and he was saying very inflammatory things about fascism and the GOP whether they were assisting or doing nothing to stop an ongoing coup in the US. Actually he even apologized for using the same inflammatory remarks during the Bush presidency as he argued Trump is on a different level.

    Objectively the world doesn't end if either candidate wins. It just means none of the real problems are going to be solved anyways as both are simply sub par.

    Wikileaks has provided nothing relevant to Clinton's supposed corruption and the FBI is acting in a partisan manner.

    Thanks for telling me that. I admit I'm not not always the most informed on all things politics as some of the other posters here. It's good to hear that someone will hopefully be investigating Giuliani and the portion of the FBI that's been doing these leaks.

    See how biased you sound? You act like Trump can do no wrong even though we very well know he has done wrong.

    How? By doing their jobs?

    They haven't even finished their leaks, so how do you know? And besides, there's a lot of evidence pointing to pay-to-play schemes. The Feds are going to have a lot more specific info on this.

    I'm completely right in what I said though. Both sides are pulling up ridiculous BS. That is not the same as saying "Trump can do no wrong".

    Please post one wikileak that is a lie.

    And I'm not talking about tweets, I'm talking about actual emails/cables that have been released.

    Wikileaks is there to provide transparency... their e-mails are 100% legit.
