For the first time in American History, the completely censored Communist debate is set to go tonight: Candidates’ mics will be cut, and no talk of Supreme Court.
The presidential debate tonight will apparently give voters their final opportunity to compare a weighted and horrible dictator, President Trump against the Golden Child Democratic nominee Joe Biden under once again very biased conditions and side-by-side during an event that offers up not much more than an agenda push for Left Dems and fanatics on social media having meltdowns over a mask or tie choice of the President.
The debate comes as controversy, censorship and potential criminal charges swirl around Joe Biden and his family — which even the farce debate itself has the potential — and as Congress is still in session negotiating an economic stimulus measure for the continuing coronavirus pandemic and pushing a Supreme Court nominee across the finish line.
It also happens less than two weeks ahead of an Election Day that could possibly see results “delayed” of course due to the increased reliance on mail-in ballots nationwide because of the pandemic… yeah, that’s it.
Both sides have been gearing up teams of lawyers to fight expected legal battles over ballots that could even make their way up to the Supreme Court, or at least that is what the Democrats are planning for.
Biden has framed the presidential election as “a battle for the soul of this nation,” while he’s clearly sold his long ago, what does that mean for the country? You guessed it.
This while President Trump has said that the race comes down to a choice between “the American Dream” and a “socialist hellhole.” Both men have also gone on the attack, with Trump calling Biden’s family “a criminal enterprise” of which there is more and more proof every day and Biden saying the president is “a national embarrassment.”
With less than two weeks left in the 2020 presidential election cycle, here’s what to know about the final presidential debate:
Location and time
The debate will be held at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., and begin at 9 p.m. ET, like the first presidential debate and the vice-presidential debate. Also like the previous presidential debate and the vice-presidential debate, the debate will last an hour and a half and include no breaks.
NBC News White House Correspondent (and biased lefty, big surprise) Kristen Welker will moderate the debate.
An opportunity to change a campaign’s momentum?
Not really, not when the country is so clearly unified behind the President in just about every way.
Is this a good chance for President Trump to gain even more support among the Dems and hard core leftists? No.
So barring any major surprises in the next 12 days, this face-to-face meeting between Biden and Trump will go by largely ignored by most and perhaps we will finally see the final nail in the coffin of socialism in America.
Trump, who is trailing in the mainstream polls, isn’t swayed one bit as he ramps up his ever growing base into a movement for America with huge rallys all over the country.
This while Biden, who is somehow apparently leading, has been dormant in his basement for the past 5 out of 6 days leading up to tonight’s debate.
His campaign says they could increase his odds of victory even further with a dominant performance tonight. Unfortunately, Biden’s memory loss, major gaffes and overall poor performance in this run have left him unable to dominate anything.
Add to this the recent developments about Chinese and Russian influence over what seems his entire family over several decades (including during his Vice Presidency) pretty much puts him away wet for his chances at the big Post for 2020 and may result in federal criminal charges.
Is President Trump likely to bring up the Hunter Biden email reports?
Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller said on Monday that Trump is likely to mention reports by the New York Post on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, if Welker does not bring it up.
“If Kristen Welker, the moderator, doesn’t bring it up, I think you’re pretty safe to assume that the president will,” Miller said on “Mornings with Maria.” “Again, these are real simple questions.”
Reporting in the New York Post has alleged that the elder Biden met with a Ukrainian business associate of his son, based on emails allegedly coming from the hard drive of a laptop that once purportedly belonged to Hunter Biden. The New York Post has also reported on Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China based on the laptop emails.
Joe Biden calls the reports a “smear campaign” and the Biden campaign has said that it reviewed Biden’s “official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”
The Supreme Court has been officially banned and is not a topic?
Yes, you read that right… The Senate is set to confirm Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Monday. The Senate Judiciary Committee has a vote scheduled to report Barrett to the full Senate this afternoon just hours before the debate starts. Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, have yet to say whether or not they would pack the Supreme Court if elected although the answer is quite obvious.
But the Supreme Court is not one of the slated topics of course, which is always subject to change, (but they just say that to get away with it) and based entirely on any new developments that are set to be discussed during the debate.
This is where we’re likely to see President Trump take control and ensure certain facts are included during his timed responses. Remember they are muting microphones as if there are things they do not want mentioned or addressed this close to election day. Sound familiar?
The scheduled topics for the debate are: Fighting COVID-19; American Families; Race in America; Climate Change; National Security; and Leadership. Yes, those topics were of course selected by Welker. Note, those are the main topics always brought up by the left even though there is concrete evidence to the contrary, they like to keep hammering voters with the same stories hoping of course that it will somehow stick.
It is likely that Trump will bring up the Supreme Court topic himself, however, just as his campaign indicated, he will likely mention the Hunter Biden email story well before this would come into discussion.
Candidates will have their mics muted at certain times
Ah, America… It seems that after “constant interruptions” by Trump during the first presidential debate — as well as many, from Biden — the debate commission has announced for the first time ever, that it would modify how it will enforce the rules both candidates agreed to before the debates began.
It should be noted for the record that President Trump has not agreed to muting microphones of course, but that is how they wish you the voter to view this blatant censorship and speech control. Never before in U.S. Politics has anyone ever been censored or directed in such a manner because “constant interruptions hurt somebody’s feelings” But that is where we’re at apparently.
Each candidate is afforded two uninterrupted minutes to speak at the beginning of each 15-minute topic, and on Thursday the microphone for the candidate who is not speaking during that time will be cut. Both candidates’ mics will be open for the rest of each segment, allowing candidates to interject as they go back and forth on the issues. The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), in announcing the mic-cutting, emphasized that the mic rule does not effect the overall debate rules.
We however would argue that it contravenes the Constitution of the United States, but hey, we’re just a little internet news source, what do we know.
“Under the agreed upon debate rules, each candidate is to have 2 minutes of uninterrupted time to make remarks at the beginning of each 15-minute segment of the debate,” it said in a statement. “These remarks are to be followed by a period of open discussion. Both campaigns this week again reaffirmed their agreement to the 2-minute, uninterrupted rule.”
The commission also said that if one candidate interrupts the other disproportionately, “time taken up during any interruptions will be returned to the other candidate.”
The cancellation of the Oct. 15 debate
Three presidential debates were originally planned, but the second one was canceled, making the October 22 debate the second and final of this election.
After Trump was diagnosed with the coronavirus, the CPD announced that what was then scheduled to be the second presidential debate would happen virtually. That attempt failed the test with the President and the American People, so it did not happen.
Trump said that he would refuse to participate in a virtual debate and both candidates eventually scheduled dueling town halls in lieu of a debate which President Trump was once again dubbed the clear winner.
There was no formal agreement that the debate be about foreign policy
Because the final presidential debate is traditionally about foreign policy, Trump and his team loudly objected to the fact that only 15 minutes of the Thursday debate will be dedicated to national security. Likely because their record in both arenas is stellar and so much so that he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize not once, not twice, but 3 times.
And again, the topics are left up to the discretion of the moderator without limits.
Tens of millions have already voted
Yes, it is true, with the expanded use of early voting and mail balloting in this presidential election, as of Wednesday morning, nearly 38 million Americans have already voted apparently. Texas and Vermont have reported that they already have reached over 50% of their 2016 voter turnouts and New Jersey, Georgia, New Mexico and Montana each are over 40%.
This means that there will be fewer voters left to be swayed by the Thursday debate, no matter how it goes.
This is telling. Now before you go off the deep end and think your Joe Biden is a shoe in, consider this. Former President Barack Obama hit the streets today in support of Mr. Biden, to a… shall we say less than stellar response.
Videos hitting twitter this morning showed the former President unable to hold a single persons attention on the street and several other tweeters with other angles of the event only confirmed the original video now with over 5 million plays.
