Presidential Election Commission

The second debate of Oct. 15 is officially called off. But what the press isn't emphasizing is that it was President Trump who put a stop to it, refusing to kowtow to the supposedly nonpartisan Presidential Debate Commission's demands for a virtual debate instead of a live one. According to the New York Times: The second presidential debate was formally canceled late Friday after President Trump refused to participate in a virtual event, the latest sign of the upheaval that the coronavirus has wrought on the 2020 campaign.

Comments:

Like with the White House Correspondents' Dinnner, liberals overplayed their hand and forgot that Trump didn't have to play along.

This is a good thing. Lyin’ Biden is only going to lie or refuse to answer and the moderator will not call him on it or press him for an answer. The only questions asked will be intended to make President Trump look bad. At this point I don't see how Trump can gain anything from more debates.

Kenny sang about knowing when to hold and when to fold ‘em… President Trump has known that for a long time and has lived it. He has advocated walking away from bad deals and that’s what he’s done. The Paris Accord, the Iran nuke deal. When the Eeyores wobbled about his making deals with China, he told us that he would never hesitate to walk away from a deal that was bad for our country. This debate setup was a bad deal. There have been others, and there will be mmore in the future.

I haven't the answer as to who appoints the commission, but I do see the appearance that the Democrats pick their people and they also pick what republicans are on the commission.

I used to wonder why Republicans tolerated the obvious bias. The answer was always that ''we need to show the voters how biased the left is.'' Well, at his point in time we already know, without any doubt or misgivings, that the democrats and their commission are utterly and undeniably biased- to the point of insanity! President Trump had nothing to gain by another ''debate'' in any form, under the current process, so he walked away. He can now get his message out in his own way, in spite of the media's interference!

Presidential debates have been bias for years now. It’s the continuing manipulation of the voters. Maybe exposing the blatant bias will help change it? Remember when Newt challenged The premise of almost every question in 2012. Here we are 8 years later and the corrupt press has doubled and tripled down.

Bias aside...why give Biden any more exposure? if he's too damn weak/lazy to get out to campaign, leave him to his own devices to connect with voters. In the meantime, plenty of airports out there...

Tell Slow Joe that there will be an opportunity to debate in a week, in person. Trump picks the person to question Biden, Biden picks a person to question Trump. Take it or leave it. The debate commission is a crock, ignore them.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's final weeks have been described by friends and relatives, who told of her remarkable vigor, and their shock at her death on Friday. Ginsburg, who died at the age of 87, was still seeing family, exercising, listening to opera and working right up until her death. She even officiated at a wedding. Those who had been in touch with Ginsburg or her staff recently said she seemed to be coping with treatment for cancer and also making plans for events months away. Mary Hartnett, one of her two authorized biographers, visited Ginsburg in mid-August at her longtime home in the Watergate apartment

Portland police declared yet another riot Tuesday night on the 83rd consecutive day of protests after a 200-strong mob of protesters torched the city's famous Multnomah Building. The group had marched to the county seat of government for the first time, smashing windows and sparking a blaze by pushing lit newspapers through the windows. One image shows the protesters had marked a window to the building with the graffiti: 'Aim here.' Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon's biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Four former top Republicans formally backed Joe Biden at Monday night's virtual Democratic National Convention festivites, with 2016 GOP hopeful John Kasich promising his fellow party members that the Democrat wouldn't become too liberal. 'I'm sure there are Republicans and independents who couldn't imagine crossing over to support a Democrat, they fear Joe may turn sharp left and leave them behind. I don't believe that,' Kasich said. 'Because I know the measure of the man - reasonable, faithful, respectful and you know, no one pushes Joe around.'

The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the oil companies that held sway in the state capitol.

Since that whole “George Floyd” thing happened in late May, the end of this month will officially mark one full season of nationwide (and, even worldwide) rioting to protest the perceived racial injustices of this Noble Blackman’s unfortunate passing. We were led to believe right out of the gate that racist white cops hunted down and seized this chocolate-tinted gentle giant for no other reason than the color of his skin, slammed him to the ground, and then knelt on his neck long enough to asphyxiate him despite his repeated pleas that he couldn’t breathe.

In my household, the nightly self-administered dose of anxiety commences at dinnertime when my wife switches on MSNBC. As the president blunders through a press briefing leaving behind a trail of disinformation, my spouse invariably delivers an impassioned stream of expletives at the screen. Then we listen to the pundits, who have lately spent a worrisome amount of time commenting on the many devious ways in which our commander-in-chief could lose the election but remain president anyway. Frankly, I simply cannot deal with this possibility. I’m already on anxiety meds and there’s probably no medication in existence that can take the edge off

And will Queen Elizabeth strip his titles — or his visa — after his biting comments on the Biden-Trump race? Questions are swirling around Buckingham Palace once again after staffers received orders to get the royal couple’s former home, Frogmore Cottage, ready for a visit soon from Harry, The Daily Mail reported. No mention, though, was made whether Markle is coming along, and that has tongues wagging — as does the purpose of the visit, which insiders speculate will be a tough conversation

San Francisco experienced a 43% year-over-year decline in sales tax revenues during the pandemic, which has been credited to an exodus from the expensive city. San Francisco’s chief economist Ted Egan attributed the drop in revenue that occurred between April and June to a flight of individuals from the city, rather than a decline in activity due to the pandemic. Egan told Fox News that while areas throughout California experienced a decline in sales tax revenues, other cities saw an uptick in online sales – but San Francisco did not.

In mid-2016, the FBI got word that Russian intelligence believed Hillary Clinton’s campaign was planning to frame Donald Trump as colluding with Russia’s Vladimir Putin to hack her computers. Yet somehow, the crack agents never connected the dots when handed the Steele “dossier” commissioned and paid for by the Clinton campaign that claimed Trump was colluding with Putin. Instead, the Justice Department used that dossier as a pretext to spy on at least Trump aide Carter Page as it investigated the clearly spurious charges. Justice also distorted the facts about Page’s past relations with the CIA
