Biden faded fast and choked in the last section

First of all, Kristen Welker did a very good job as moderator. Even Trump praised her.

Joe Biden started off well but faded fast in the back half of the debate. He didn’t handle the saga around his son, Hunter, well. He sounded rattled and will only draw more eyeballs to the suppressed media coverage.

Trump explained his points far better that in the first debate. Getting rid of COVID in the first question allowed the more powerful points for Trump in the back half where he could made significant ground around the economy, foreign policy, race and health.

Trump executed well by slamming Biden for being a “politician” who promises stuff but doesn’t deliver. That he hasn’t achieved the things he proposes now in 47 years in politics or 8 years as VP. Biden even disparaged Obama by saying he can do things he wants if he is president.

When Biden raised Hitler in the debate, he started to back pedal fast. Why talk about Nazism?

Biden’s stupidity was to touch on $15 minimum wages to help small business. Is he nuts? What small business in trouble thinks that recovery will come through higher wages?

Biden asked people to fact check his position on fracking. He said he wouldn’t ban it in today’s debate but is on tape countless times saying he would. Too easy to prove he is lying. Biden’s renewables push was hopeless and Trump made it clear why the US doesn’t need to be in the Paris Accord.

At the very end Biden chucked the oil industry under the bus in the closing remarks of the climate change section. Trump pushed him and he took the bait to say he wants to phase it out for good. Surely not the thing to say in fossil fuel dependent swing states.

In summary, this election will be determined by “lived experience“. Nothing is more powerful than becoming irate at a politician telling you what you aren’t experiencing.

We think the actions of mostly despotic Democratic mayors and governors throughout coronavirus have sent a negative message about what happens when citizens lose control and cede power to law makers.

We still believe Trump has got this.

Why the Mute Button will benefit Trump in the final debate

Problem solved? The debate moderators intend to have a mute button in the forthcoming debate to avoid interruption experienced in the first debate.

It sounds wonderful in principle, but we believe if the moderator is of sufficient ability, she shouldn’t require technological assistance to fall back on if her biases seek to stifle robust debate through balanced questioning and reasonable time to answer and redirect.

One can only imagine how fairly the mute button will be applied in the final show off between Trump and Biden on October 22nd given we know that the moderator, Kristen Welker, is staunchly in the Democrat camp.

We are sure when the microphone cut offs are tallied, Trump will outscore Biden on a 10:1 scale, if not more.

We have no doubt that Trump is the more likely of the two to interject but we think it will work in Trump’s favour to be cut off because we know that the deranged mainstream media will openly celebrate and applaud the idea of suppressing the free speech of someone they disagree with on a whim.

We don’t think that will play well to level headed Americans who want to hear and see the reactions of both candidates when pinned on the ropes. A good moderator would seek that type of courage under fire.

Unfortunately, the debate will likely end up being 3 on 1. Softballs will be tossed at Biden and hand grenades lobbed at Trump.

Should Trump leave the stage after being cut off countless times, we won’t be the least bit surprised. He will prove the point of just how biased the moderator was and how she relished the ability to muzzle the most powerful man in the world to feed her own derangement. She’ll prove his point about free speech. Never forget Reagan slammed a moderator for threatening to cut the mic in 1980.

If he leaves, the media will divert all attention to Trump as to why he did so and prove back to their faces that they have absolutely zero interest in objectivity other than to justify using authoritarian cancel culture tactics to silence and humiliate him.

As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than they hate Trump.

Best they put this on full display.

Yelp to list businesses accused of racism

For those who don’t know, Yelp is a site that collects ratings about all manner of services – from restaurants, plumbers, electricians to hair salons. One can even search exclusively for black-owned businesses.

Yelp has now decided to add a function which alerts consumers of businesses accused of ‘racism.’

It wrote:

At Yelp, we value diversity, inclusion and belonging, both internally and on our platform, which means we have a zero tolerance policy to racism….Communities have always turned to Yelp in reaction to current events at the local level. As the nation reckons with issues of systemic racism, we’ve seen in the last few months that there is a clear need to warn consumers about businesses associated with egregious, racially-charged actions to help people make more informed spending decisions….Now, when a business gains public attention for reports of racist conduct, such as using racist language or symbols, Yelp will place a new Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert on their Yelp page to inform users, along with a link to a news article where they can learn more about the incident.

What if Yelp incorrectly accuses a corporation/business of racism based on a false claim?

Remember what happened to Oberlin College?

The whole issue started when a student from Oberlin College was caught shoplifting two bottles of wine from Gibson’s Bakery while trying to buy another with fake ID. Allyn Gibson, son of the owner chased down the shoplifter but was attacked by his accomplices. The perpetrators claimed racial profiling by the store.

Oberlin College’s Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo, joined in student protests calling Gibsons a “racist establishment.” It was then that Oberlein ended all business with the bakery (which had been an ongoing supplier to the college since 1885). Flyers were printed and the store attacked.

Several faculty staff joined the protestors who tried to shut down Gibsons despite the college president Carmen Twillie Ambar suggesting they were on private time and only representing their First Amendment rights, not representing the school.

After a police investigation turned over nothing to suggest racism on any level, Oberlin resumed its contract with Gibson’s but refused to publicly retract the accusations.

Gibson sued for defamation and won US$25 million. The three perpetrators admitted they’d made it all up and that the shop owner had a right to charge them for their crime. 

We will have no sympathy if Yelp falls into this woke trap and gets sued for falsely accusing innocent businesses.

Sinister Big tech’s intentional election meddling

Big tech is determined to tell users what they deem is suitable for consumption. The top screen grab is from Facebook. Head of Comms, Andy Stone, made it clear the social media giant would curtail the Biden conflict of interest news story under the guise of ‘fact checking.’

The NY Post article that surfaced overnight revealed emails from Hunter Biden’s PC which showed he was leveraging his then VP father’s relationship with Ukrainians execs.

Twitter went to an even more interesting approach to suggest the NY Post link was “unsafe” to prevent views.

What we do know from history is that the more efforts made to cover one’s tracks, the more one guarantees to raise awareness to those problems on a stratospheric level.

Ultimately, big tech firms were granted immunity from prosecution as they promised to be mere hosts of content without fear or favour. Now that they are using discretionary editing, they should lose their sanctuary status and be liable to prosecution for suppressing free speech.

These are deep-seated liberal activist platforms. As businesses they are free to exercise commercial decisions. However they don’t have a right to flaunt laws without real world consequences.

Today big tech crossed a line and outed themselves as interfering in the election.

Gov Gretchen Whitmer suffers severe episode of Trump Derangement Syndrome

What a surprise! Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer used an opportunity to blame a plot to kidnap her on, you guessed it – Trump.

He responded,

Governor Whitmer of Michigan has done a terrible job. She locked down her state for everyone, except her husband’s boating activities. The Federal Government provided tremendous help to the Great People of Michigan. My Justice Department and Federal Law Enforcement announced today that they foiled a dangerous plot against the Governor of Michigan…Rather than say thank you, she calls me a White Supremacist—while Biden and Democrats refuse to condemn Antifa, Anarchists, Looters and Mobs that burn down Democrat run cities…I do not tolerate ANY extreme violence. Defending ALL Americans, even those who oppose and attack me, is what I will always do as your President! Governor Whitmer—open up your state, open up your schools, and open up your churches.”

Whitmer featured quite highly in our “Am I a Despot or Not?” piece back in May, which outlined draconian lockdown measures by state and city. Her husband was caught attempting to go boating during the state’s harsh lockdowns causing her much embarrassment and a lame excuse to boot.

Not for one second do we condone groups looking to kidnap anyone, but at some point individuals looking to commit a crime ultimate take responsibility for their actions.

Perhaps she should have blamed her husband’s lack of judgment on Trump too to be consistent.

7999 billboards ok in LA. One deemed distracting

Pathetic. ‘Hollywood’ has adorned the LA hillside for decades but somehow ‘Trump’ is deemed distracting for drivers. On the plus side, it is free advertising to further make the claim that intolerant liberals don’t believe in free speech.

Six of Pinocchia’s worst Porky Pies

Britt Hughes brilliantly summarizes six of Senator Kamala Harris’ biggest lies during the VP debate in this video here.

Capitalism wins again. NBA to take wokeness off court in 2021

As ratings have plummeted since these overpaid social justice warriors took to ramming politics down paying fans’ throats, the NBA has decided it will take its woke messages off the court next season.

In what must have been the most predictable outcome imaginable, money has finally spoken. The question is whether the fans will come back?!

As we often say, people who support particular causes are willing participants right up to the point they are mercilessly shamed for not expressing outwardly in a manner the apparatchiks demand.

Pence emerges unscathed from the liar’s den

Aside from the chronic bias of the moderator, VP Mike Pence remained calm at all times and showed up the flip-flop nature of Senator Kamala Harris who will be fact checked and exposed for all of the nonsense she espoused tonight. Pence constantly made the line,

Senator Harris, you are entitled to your own opinion. You are not entitled to your own facts,”

the key undoing of most of her replies.

The beauty of Harris was that she naturally went straight to identity politics as a reason to vote for her. She also rattled off so many lies about her record from deflecting she co-sponsored AOC’s GND, denying Joe Biden had ever said he wanted to ban fracking, lying about pre-existing conditions with respect to healthcare to avoiding answering the question of packing the Supreme Court. It was so transparent. Especially when it came to foreign policy and ridiculous Russia allegations.

Pence’s best moment came when he dragged out the Obamagate investigation into the spotlight. He turned the Russia collusion nonsense straight back on the Dems and Hillary Clinton and made the point to the question of accepting the election result that, “the Democrats haven’t accepted the results from the last election” and HRC telling “Biden should not concede.” Pence pointed out that the Dems have put America through so many shambolic episodes such as impeachment and the Kavanaugh confirmation that their behaviour is on the ballot.

As an aside, my wife, whose second language is English and is not into politics at all, made the point about how inauthentic Kamala Harris was. The grin, the cackle and constant reference to her identity. In her view, Pence just came across as a steady hand who never lost his temper or got emotional.

Easy win for Pence.
