  • The ‘Commission on Presidential Debates’ Has Secret Donors Providing Millions in Dark Money and a New 3rd Board Member Who Pushes Socialism Around the World

    The clearly-corrupt and rigged Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) is a private and secretive charitable nonprofit (NFP) corporation which has had a monopoly upon the presentation of Presidential debates to the American public for 32 years, since the 1988 debates. A February 19, 1987 New York Times article, citing Paul G. Kirk Jr., the Democratic national chairman, and Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr., the Republican national chairman, tells the history of the founding of this Commission: The two major political parties today announced the creation of a bipartisan commission to sponsor Presidential debates in the 1988 general election campaign … Turning...

    The third presidential debate – set to take place on Thursday – was originally supposed to center on foreign policy. But following the release of the Hunter Biden e-mails/laptop details in the New York Post, the wildly partisan Presidential Debates Commission announced that would no longer be the case, the effect being the protection of Joe and Hunter Biden.

    “Scully allegedly claims he was hacked, the burden is on him to prove it. Hopefully he hasn't lied to the FBI about it, as that would be a crime. The CPD was in a tough position, with its moderator being exposed as partisan and possibly deceptive,” Jacobson said. “CPD's precipitous actions in moving to a virtual format without consulting the campaigns, and then cancelling the debate, took Scully off the front pages, but destroyed CPD's credibility."
  • The Debate is Over About Biased Commission

    10/11/2020 7:35:20 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | October 11, 2020 | Jeff Crouere
    Ever since the formation of the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) in 1987, there has been incredible bias against Republican candidates. The moderators and format have always favored the Democratic presidential candidates. Thus, it has been incredibly foolish for GOP presidential candidates to agree to participate in such an unfair process. Once again, this year, the Trump campaign allowed the CPD to schedule and organize four debates, three involving the presidential candidates and one featuring the vice-presidential candidates. Not surprisingly, all the moderators selected were unabashed liberals. The first presidential debate was a fiasco. It was moderated by the long-time...

    Presidential debate moderator Steve Scully claimed through a statement by C-SPAN Friday that he believed his Twitter account was "hacked" after a tweet showing him reaching out to outspoken Trump foe Anthony Scaramucci went viral Thursday night. However, resurfaced tweets show that Scully has a history of blaming hackers for his social media posts. The "Washington Journal" host appeared to reach out to the former White House communications director, who has become a vocal supporter of Joe Biden, in the now-deleted tweet that read: "@Scaramucci should I respond to trump." Both the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) and C-SPAN have...

    Following the announcement that the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was revising the format of the Oct. 15 debate to become a “virtual” event, with candidates appearing from remote locations, President Trump said he wouldn’t be participating. This decision put the entire debate schedule in flux, with former Vice President Biden quickly scheduling a Town Hall event on with ABC News on Oct. 15 instead of the debate. As a result, the next Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden will not be held until Oct. 22. The President is also trying to add a third debate, on Oct....

    Political debates only reveal a candidate's abilities and beliefs if we can follow what's going on. Let's auto-mute mics for candidates not on the clock. Of the many things this nation must reaffirm, itÂ’s that words matter and promises should be kept. If former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump stick to the commitments their campaigns agreed to months ago, Americans will have the option to sit through two more presidential debates this year.As soon as is possible, however, the Commission on Presidential Debates must ensure a return to an informative, meaningful, and respectful discussion between the candidates...

    With Fox News host Chris Wallace being heavily criticized for his bias towards Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden during the first face-off between the latter and President Donald Trump on Tuesday, September 29, social media users were curious as to who will be the moderators for the next two debates. NPR media correspondent and host of On Point Radio David Folkenflik was one of the people who had part of the answer. "Just a reminder folks. The most decent man in DC, Steve Scully of C-SPAN, is next presidential debate moderator. How the hell is *that* going to work?" Another...

    Correct— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) September 30, 2020 I rewatched the start of the debate. The 1st Q went to Trump who gave an uninterrupted 2-min response. Then Biden gave an uninterrupted 2-min response. Then it went back to Trump, whose answer was interrupted 3 times by Biden.

He rode for around 30 minutes as traffic slowed to a halt with Illinois State Police and Chicago police following close behind. Police said they asked Hollingsworth and those who were with him to exit the expressway multiple times and said...

    Why doesn’t this surprise me? People lament the violence in cities that have been under one-party political rule for decades. But voters keep electing people who not only fail to make things better but also make things worse. Take Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for example. Voters elected another cookie-cutter, anti-law and order politician, and the violence that was bad before she took office may be getting worse. But, of course it’s not her fault or the fault of bad policies. No. The fault belongs to—you guessed it—the police. Who didn’t see that one coming? No cop, that’s for sure. But...

    A former Chicago police commander once considered a rising star in the department was spared federal prison Tuesday for pocketing more than $360,000 in Social Security payments intended for his mother that he continued to collect for nearly 25 years after her death. U.S. District Judge Manish Shah sentenced Kenneth Johnson to two years of probation and ordered him to serve the first six months in community confinement, likely at the Salvation Army. . In handing down the sentence, U.S. District Judge Manish Shah said Johnson’s decision to betray the public’s trust was “infuriating.” “How many times (as a police...

    To say this is a strongly worded letter is a bit of an understatement. As you’ve no doubt heard, Illinois State Attorney Kim Foxx is in the middle of a firestorm for her apparent corrupt handling of the Jussie Smollett case. After inexplicably dropping all charges, she’s told several different stories, including some that are objectively false. She’s under FBI review, under fire from the Chicago PD, and she’s now taking hits from the Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association. Excerpts from the letter are as follows. The Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association serves as the voice for nearly 1,000 front line prosecutors...
