John Fetterman, the Pennsylvania Democratic candidate for Senate, signaled that he'd be open to debating his Republican counterpart Mehmet Oz – under some conditions. In a statement sent to Insider, Fetterman said, "We're absolutely going to debate Dr. Oz, and that was really always our intent to do that." According to Politico, Oz had called for debates in early September. And at a recent rally alongside former President Donald Trump, Oz criticized Fetterman's health and accused him of using drugs. Fetterman had a stroke in May while on the campaign trail, and returned to action in August. He added in his


Apparently Festerman cannot communicate without considerable aid. He wants the debate to be mid to late October. I assume early voting will be well underway by then.

Oz needs to make sure that he has a person behind Festerman who can see what is on his teleprompter. Just in case someone is feeding him the answers (since the one thing Demon-Rats are masters of is cheating!!!!)

I have been posting about Fetterman for some time now. He is in poor health, and he neglected his health problems for about 4 years, allowed his weight to hit 450 pounds, then dieted back down to 300 or so. He has cardiomyopathy - congenital heart failure - atrial fibrillation, and when he had his stroke in May, they implanted a pacemaker/defibrillator. That's how serious his health problems are. Now he suffers from a hearing loss and aphasia, apparently caused by the stroke. (One has to wonder about drug abuse - not long after Rush Limbaugh went through drug rehab, he went deaf. There might have been a connection between opioid drug abuse and Rush going deaf. There are whispers about Fetterman being a druggie.) He is a terrible candidate, and should be way behind Oz.

Aphasia is severe brain damage that manifests in an inability to comprehend or formulate language. It's intentionally deceptive to try to convince voters that he is hard of hearing... This isn't an ear problem, it's a brain problem.

Remember Mumia Abu-Jamal, who killed Officer Daniel Faulkner in Philly in 1981? Fetterman this year appointed the cop-killer's friend to the PA Board of Pardons. The ads just write themselves.

What the OP said. If they debate after early voting has started, I'm afraid that it will be too late. Tucker ran a special on Fetterman tonight - he's really a bad guy and has no business being a US Senator.

Isn't aphasia what caused Bruce Willis to retire from acting? This man is a walking health nightmare. If the people of Pennsylvania elect him, I bet it will be a matter of months before he has another stroke, and that one will be fatal.

Ohio is close to behaving like any blue state. The big cities decide by hook or crook who represents us. The vast majority of Buckeyes are solid conservative thinkers but the cities are hot beds of rabid liberalism and election shenanigans. Fetterman is a joke, a very dangerous one and democrats will do anything to put him in office. I just pray that the people of Ohio will go out and vote for Oz in a big way. However, the union orcs will stick with the democrat party regardless of the candidate. Voting for any democrat is voting for your own destruction. How can people be so utterly ignorant? It boggles the mind.

King Charles III, who ascended to the throne on Thursday, has chosen to rule with the name he was given at birth. But as a British king it comes with baggage. Charles I, born in 1600, endured a stormy reign that ended with his execution 49 years later. In between, he provoked a civil war and erased the notion of an all-powerful monarchy—or indeed, of any monarchy at all for the 11 years after his beheading outside Banqueting House in London.

Pennsylvania Senate hopeful Dr. Mehmet Oz put his midterm foe, John Fetterman, on blast for issuing a "head fake" offer for a debate that is likely to occur after Pennsylvanians begin casting early votes. Following weeks of intensifying pressure on Fetterman to debate Oz, the lieutenant governor finally relented this week and loosely committed to a showdown with the celebrity doctor despite his stroke-induced ailments. Oz had ramped up pressure on Fetterman to appear opposite him in a public forum, but he was left despondent with the debate offer. "There is no John Fetterman debate offer. Debates have to be

Brian Kemp from office, pointing to her struggles to rally key parts of her party’s coalition and her inability to appeal to a slice of moderate Republican voters who can decide the state’s elections. Public and private polls have consistently shown her trailing Mr. Kemp, a Republican seeking a second term.

Pennsylvania lieutenant governor and U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman has not fully recovered from the serious stroke he suffered in May. His campaign has acknowledged his obvious struggles with “auditory processing” and speech, but the persistence of those struggles has contrasted with the campaign’s rosier predictions of a return to the rigors of campaigning, including debating his opponent, Mehmet Oz. If Mr. Fetterman is not well enough to debate his opponent, that raises serious concerns about his ability to serve as a United States senator. None of this excuses the antics of Mr. Oz’s campaign, which has decided that their

NEW YORK — Payment processor Visa Inc. said Saturday that it plans to start separately categorizing sales at gun shops, a major win for gun control advocates who say it will help better track suspicious surges of gun sales that could be a prelude to a mass shooting. But the decision by Visa, the world’s largest payment processor, will likely provoke the ire of gun rights advocates and gun lobbyists, who have argued that categorizing gun sales would unfairly flag an industry when most sales do not lead to mass shootings. It joins Mastercard and American Express, which also said they plan to move forward with categorizing gun shop sales.

CBS News has a big scoop this afternoon. The industry group that sets international standards for credit card companies has decided to create a new code for the purchase of guns and ammo that, while not identifying the exact purchases, will separate those items from the more generic category they had been lumped in with previously. Merchant category codes are made up of four digits and are used across all sorts of industries as a means to classify retailers, while not revealing individual product purchases. Credit card companies currently lump firearm retailers in with other outlets, classifying them as either “5999: Miscellaneous retail stores” or “5941: Sporting Goods Stores.”

In a “Watch What Happens Live” segment called “Host Talkative,” Cohen began by showing a photo of the 45th president’s wife. Clinton was asked to ask the first thing that came to mind. “Ummm... How’s your summer going?” Clinton asked. The quick reply got a chuckle from the show’s host as well as the former Secretary of State Clinton’s daughter Chelsea, who was also on stage in the show that aired Thursday.
