(CNSNews.com) - "Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt...political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the people," Donald Trump told a campaign rally in Florida on Thursday.
"There is nothing the political establishment will not do -- no lie that they won't tell -- to hold their prestige and power at your expense. And that's what's been happening."
Trump said the Washington establishment and its media promoters and financial underwriters "exist for only one reason -- to protect and enrich itself."
He noted that the establishment has "trillions of dollars at stake in this election," and he pointed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal they want to pass.
"This is not simply another four-year election," Trump said. "This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government."
Trump criticized the political establishment as well as the "global power structure" for economic decisions that have hurt the working class and "stripped our country of its wealth."
"The Clinton machine is at the center of this power structure. We've seen this first hand in the WikiLeaks documents, in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors."
Trump also noted that the WikiLeaks release shows that the "Clinton machine" is so closely tied to liberal media outlets that she received the questions before one of her debates with rival Bernie Sanders.
"Hillary Clinton is also given approval and veto power over quotes written about her in the New York Times. They definitely do not do that to me, that I can tell you. And the e-mails show the reporters collaborate and conspire directly with the Clinton campaign on helping her win the election all over."
Trump said the "corporate media" is no longer involved in journalism. "They're a political special interest no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with a total political agenda, and the agenda is not for you, it's for themselves.
"And their agenda is to elect crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy. For them it's a war, and for them nothing at all is out of bounds. This is a struggle for the survival of our nation, believe me."
He called the Clintons "criminals."
"With their control over our government at stake, with trillions of dollars on the line, the Clinton machine is determined to achieve the destruction of our campaign."
Addressing the "slander and libels" that have been "thrown at me," Trump said it's part of a concerted, coordinated and vicious attack:
"It's not coincidence that these attacks come at the exact same moment...as WikiLeaks releases documents exposing the massive international corruption of the Clinton machine, including 2,000 more e-mails just this morning.
"These vicious claims about me of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false. And the Clintons know it, and they know it very well. These claims are all fabricated. They're pure fiction and they're outright lies. These events never, ever happened," he insisted.
"The claims are preposterous, ludicrous, and defy truth, common sense and logic. We already have substantial evidence to dispute these lies, and it will be made public in an appropriate way and at an appropriate time very soon.
"These lies come from outlets whose past stories and past claims have already been discredited. The media outlets did not even attempt to confirm the most basic facts because even a simple investigation would have shown that these were nothing more than false smears."
