All eyes are turning to NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker as she prepares to host the third and final presidential debate Thursday. President Trump and Joe Biden will square off at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., in a 90-minute debate starting at 9 p.m. Welker, 44, has been the White House correspondent at NBC News since 2011, after working as a news reporter in Rhode Island. But Trump supporters who took issue with hard questioning by previous moderators like Chris Wallace and Savannah Guthrie may find themselves pining for those combative hosts after Welker is done with the president.

"Trump supporters who took issue with hard questioning by previous moderators " No. We have no problem with hard questioning. What we take issue with is hard questioning of only Trump and softballs to Biden. We also take issue with the "moderator" becoming a debator against Trump. Doesn't seem any writer can give a true and straight story any more.

The presidential debate commission has to be thrown out and a new one formed. Furthermore, why is there never, ever a right wing host? Why not Mark Levin? Rush? Or anyone else that we would trust, and I don't mean Bret Baier and his ilk.

These days to become or hold a job as an alphabet network talking head of any prominence, you have to have deep liberal Democrat ties in the New York City and Washington, DC, centric liberal media. For the most part, those liberal talking heads only mingle socially with other liberal Democrats, and that’s the world they live in. To them the rest of the country outside those liberal Democrat politically dominated cities are like a foreign country. That’s why it was so easy for the so-called “bipartisan” Presidential Debate Commission made up of liberal Democrats and establishment globalist investor class Republicans, to select moderators that turned out to be all liberal Democrats and that has occurred before just about all recent presidential elections.

I don't know if anyone from the Trump administration ever reads posts here or other conservative sites but I have an idea for President Trump for his next debate they might like. He needs to make a list every single time he has condemned 'white supremacy', where and when. If the moderator asks him again why he hasn't condemned bigots, he can pull the list from his pocket and say this is here and when I have. And then add, that since the moderator doesn't know this already, he/she is obviously unprepared to be on stage asking him questions and is there anyone else who can take over.

Trump needs to insist on TWO questioners. One selected by each side to question the other side's candidate. THAT would be fair and balanced. Advocates on each side.

Like most of what ails us today, the seeds of the current crisis in republican governance — the severance of Washington’s omnipotent law enforcement and intelligence apparatus from democratic accountability — were sown in the 1960s and ’70s. That was when we began to erase the salient distinction between law and politics. Under the guise of “national security,” we insulated governmental actions and policies from the reckoning of our citizens, whose safety and self-determination hang in the balance.Fast forward to 2020. The FBI, in its bungling partisanship, very likely swung the 2016 presidential election away from its preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton.

Two of the hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” admitted this week that they believe President Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis was fake.Their admission came Thursday, a day after tech giants Facebook and Twitter began suppressing an unconfirmed story about Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s youngest son, Hunter, that media pundits had claimed was a “conspiracy theory.” The first admission was made by co-host Whoopi Goldberg as she was responding to a fellow co-host’s complaints that the idea of herd immunity — which is currently being considered by the White House — “seems cruel, seems callous.”“It doesn’t look good anywhere,” Goldberg responded before suddenly trotting out

When a New York tabloid published the alleged contents of a computer hard drive purporting to document the Ukrainian and Chinese business activities of Hunter Biden, the newspaper cast the information as a "smoking gun."
Enter the FBI.   Less than three weeks before one of the most contentious presidential campaigns in history, federal authorities are investigating whether the material supplied to the New York Post by Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, is part of a smoke bomb of disinformation pushed by Russia.   Corrections**

‘Trans Lives Matter’ — Biden Pledges to
Sign Bill to Force Schools to Allow

In yet another glaring example that today’s Democrat Party is not the same Democrat Party of not all that long ago, Joe Biden pledged on Friday to sign the so-called “Equality Act” — a bill would that force public schools to allow biological boys who identify as transgender girls to compete in girls’ sports. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment. As the Daily Caller reported, the Equality Act passed the House with unanimous support from Democrats in May 2019 but didn’t come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate. This is yet another example of what will happen to this country if Biden wins the White House
Twitter refuses to unlock New York Post

Twitter has refused to unlock the New York Post's account since Wednesday unless the outlet deletes six tweets about its reporting on 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, the Post reported. Both the San Francisco-based social media platform and Facebook came under fire this week after the two blocked users from sharing a Post article showing purported communication between 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company. The younger Biden's work in the country while his father was vice president was at the heart of President Trump's impeachment trial earlier this year.

Former President Barack Obama will head to Philadelphia on Wednesday to campaign on behalf of the Biden-Harris ticket, his first appearance on the trail thus far. With just two weeks until the election, Obama will rally support in a battleground state that President Trump won by less than a percentage point in 2016. Current polls show Democratic opponent Joe Biden leading Trump by more than five percentage points, according to a Real Clear Politics average. (Snip) Meanwhile, vice presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has tweaked her campaign events after multiple staffers tested positive for the coronavirus, but her husband, Doug Emhoff, will hold a rally in Philadelphia on Saturday.

Harvey Weinstein is broke and will likely die if he remains in prison, his lawyer said Friday at a hearing over whether the former powerhouse producer should be freed on bail pending an appeal of his Manhattan rape conviction. “[Weinstein’s] physical and mental condition has so deteriorated, I do not think it’s an overstatement to say that if he is not released as part of this application, his chances of surviving in prison are rather low,” one of his lawyers, Barry Kamins, told Judge Angela Mazzarelli during a virtual hearing in the Appellate Division First Department.

The sparse attendance and conspicuous lack of enthusiasm at Joe Biden’s rallies seems to have led old Joe’s handlers, despite his 10,000-point lead in the polls, to decide that another round of Islamopandering might be just the shot in the arm their campaign needs. After all, hard-Leftists such as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Linda Sarsour are all Muslims, and all were firmly in the Bernie Sanders camp before the Democratic National Committee shivved their man yet again. Their support for Biden has been decidedly tepid. And so it was time to send them some love. On Wednesday, Biden released a video message to Muslim Advocates,

Arguably the biggest sensation to come out of the debacle of a town hall NBC had with President Trump was the so-called “nodding lady.” Positioned directly behind the President’s left shoulder for one of the most widely used camera angles, she was applauded by some and attacked by others for nodding her head and displaying thumbs up in agreement when the President answered many of the attack questions posed to him by Savannah Guthrie. But she wasn’t originally positioned there. Before the town hall began, a Caucasian lady was originally positioned there.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is at it again, this time crying persecution to gin up votes for corrupt Joe Biden, as if his own failed bid to topple President Trump weren't reason enough to hide his head in shame. He's working with the #NeverTrump Lincoln Project, a group of former Republican sore losers, using his wife, whose Twitter handle is @NatSecHobbyist to put out the phoniest of phony videos (snip) Now he, and his suspiciously partisan and privy wife Rachel Vindman are claiming 'threats,' working with the dishonest remnants of the old Bush machine running this sleazy Lincoln Project to try to sway voters to despise Trump

An event billed as a free speech rally and a protest against Twitter turned violent Saturday. The event featured some well-known conservative personalities, but organizers were forced to cancel the rally minutes after it started. A large crowd of demonstrators gathered at UN Plaza in San Francisco to oppose a small group, holding what was billed as a free speech rally protesting what they say is Twitter's censorship of some of its content.
