It’s not hyperbole:

The immediate reaction most people have has to do with Biden’s senility. Whew, he’s really lost a step, the poor guy. Should he be president? Can he be president?

These are understandable reactions. While they illustrate the absurdity of democracy, though, they don’t destroy it. The obvious collusion between putative news sources and the Democrat presidential campaign does that.

The only way the campaign is able to come up with written responses for Biden to read while being interviewed by CBS and Telemundo is if his campaign received the questions in advance. These are not soft or friendly interviews, these are professionally produced campaign ads. Biden’s campaign should report them as in-kind donations. Not doing so is a blatant violation of campaign finance laws.

Donald Trump needs to sit down and study this well enough to have command of it next week, assuming the first debate takes place as scheduled. Ask Biden point blank if he uses a teleprompter during media interviews and call him out for lying if he tries to deny it.

People hate the media–for very good reason, as we see here. They’re predisposed to take the president’s side in a rigged game, and people will hone in on all the instances of implicit rigging the rest of the night. Trump needs to force this issue early, within the first few statements he makes and then hound Biden with it every time he fumbles.

  1. Having the media on your side is more like a handicap.

    Especially for a senile old fool like Biden.

    Even scripted he messes things up and looks bad.

    Also,people on both the right and left HATE the corporate media.

    The left considers them too far right of their Marxist goals.

    The corporate shills cannot go off on the Rich, because they work for them.

    Trump handles the media quite well, and looks good on TV.

    All that time in front of cameras paid off for Trump.

    If the left-wing media was neutral and objective and as candid and vigilant in exposing Biden's senility and dementia and history and habit of lying as Tucker and Hannity and others on Fox News rather than the propaganda wing of the Democratic party, virtually akin to Pravda in the erstwhile Soviet Union, Biden would have no chance of being elected President.

    People who only watch CNN and MSNBC and the like don't know the extent of his senility and dementia and chronic and execrable and pathological lying, both to pander for votes and to conceal and distort the truth about himself and his 47-years as a quintessential "swamp creature," most egregiously his history of lying and plagiarism and many schemes and crimes to enrich himself and his family, especially his crack-addict son Hunter.

  2. Did everyone know that WUHAN-19 has killed 200,000,000 people? That is what Biden said….

    How did the DNC screw up so badly that they intentionally chosen Biden as their nominee? I almost feel sorry for the guy.

    The first debate is 29-SEP. Unless something improves his condition in the next week, this could be a game changing disaster for the DNC ticket.

    PEACE 😇

  3. Biden won’t answer anything he is not spoon fed. Trump will be hogtied and shouted down (and that is just the Republicans) every time he tries to demonstrate that Mr. Biden is sadly unable. IfTPTB want Biden/Harris in office, it will be so. Same thing for Trump, or anyone else they deem necessary to the cause.

    Elections for POTUS have not been more than entertaining for a long time, and this year is no different.

  4. Why would the powers that be want Biden? Or Harris for that matter.

    Trump is good for business. Wall Street has been good and profitable under Trump.

    Even if the election was a fraud and choices made beforehand, Biden is the Loser.

    Biden doesn’t do anything. Harris is worse. Bad for business.

    BLM has blown up in the Democrats faces. The woke is now going broke.

    That’s just unprofitable. Money is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

    Trump is the obvious choice for the monied.

    Who cares what celebrities and dregs of society, but I repeat myself, want?

    That is where you are wrong, power to impose their ideology is the most important thing. If they have total power they don't have worry about money, if Hollywood goes bankrupt they can bail them out, they can spin many narratives (national security, BLM, diversity) as to why this has to happen. The woke cannot go broke if they rule it all.

  6. For anyone who might have forgotten, Hillary campaign staff and reporters were caught on camera doing essentially the same thing.

    Watch as the staffer feeds the question via phone/pad to Andrea Mitchell:

  7. Donald Trump needs to sit down and study this well enough to have command of it next week

    \

    LOL

    I have thought for a couple of months now that the debates are Trump’s only real chance to get back in the race. Another piece of good news for the GOP is that NancyBot has malfunctioned.

  8. Can he be president?

    Dementia and utter dependence on his handlers is not a bug, it’s a feature.

    Obama managed it without even being senile.

    The only problem for Dems is how to get the empty vessel past the voters and into the Oval Office.

  9. Trump is a crummy debater and Chris Wallace of all people — the guy who will moderate the first debate on September 29 in Ohio — will be the one doing the moderating.

    Trump and the rancid Republican Party are losing White voters over 65 years old and that spells doom for Trump and the rancid Republican Party.

    White voters and Greedy White Geezers are escaping from the globalizer compound of unspeakable horrors that is the evil and treasonous Republican Party.

    The White Core America political party intelligentsia is doing inclined push ups that work the deltoids and the triceps and the pectoral muscles and they are ready to push the weak and defeated Republican Party off the political cliff on November 4. Trump and the rancid Republican Party will be crushed by the voters on November 3 and the European Christian ancestral core of the USA will begin to get explicit representation in just a short time.

  10. Trump is a crummy debater part II:

    I wrote this in September of 2019 about Chris Wallace and Trump and Hillary and Brazilian bankers bribing baby boomer globalizer slob Hillary Clinton:

    Trump had the chance in a presidential debate with Hillary Clinton to bring up the fact that Hillary Clinton got paid big loot to talk up open borders globalization in front of some Brazilian bankers, but Trumpy wasn’t the sonofabitch who brought it up.

    It was Chris Wallace of all people who brought up the Brazilian Banker Open Borders Globaloney nonsense that Hillary Clinton was engaged in. Chris Wallace is famous in political circles for being the son of the guy who was prominently featured in a portion of a movie by David Byrne.

    In David Byrne’s True Stories, a beautiful actress playing a beautiful White church lady of middle age but still hot to trot variety, proudly proclaims that “Mike Wallace wants my body.”

    Why should it be the son of the guy that David Byrne used in a comedy bit from a movie called True Stories be the one that has to bring up Hillary Clinton selling out the national sovereignty of the USA to plutocrat Brazilian Bankers?

    https://www.unz.com/anepigone/becky-against-our-boy/#comment-3460575

    Hillary Clinton was tripped up in the presidential debates by one question from Chris Wallace of Fox News. Chris Wallace asked Hillary Clinton about the speech Hillary Clinton gave to Brazilian bankers where Hillary said she dreamed of open borders for the United States.

    Hillary Clinton and Brazilian bankers debate video from October of 2016:

  11. Biden reminds me of the old Star Trek where Kirk, Spock, and McCoy beam down to the Nazi planet where they got the drugged Fuehrer giving speeches like and automaton. “Melacon is the traitor!”

  12. I would hope the debates will cause Joe to stumble but I’m sure they’ll pump him with some drugs beforehand.

  14. In fairness, the late-night shows are actually *very* well scripted, although they don’t like to admit that (except when the writers get Emmys). But that doesn’t mean it’s right to do it when interviewing a politician- and it especially doesn’t mean that most people know it.

  15. Misinformation

  16. Targeted Harassment

  17. While they illustrate the absurdity of democracy, though, they don’t destroy it. The obvious collusion between putative news sources and the Democrat presidential campaign does that.

    Making a Constitutional Republic work requires:

    -- Shared values (including Patriotism and belief in the Constitution)
    -- Well educated voters (who learn real history)

    A huge chunk of the U.S. population is poorly educated and does not believe in the Republic or the Constitution.

    Trump's School Choice plan is a good first step. It will provide an option for Main Street parents to extract their children from the SJW Fascist indoctrination centers. Once teachers and children are freed from the brutality of Political Correctness, performance will surge. It will take time, but the gobbledygook can be eradicated from the curriculum.

    PEACE 😇
