  • And now the Facebook Files: CDC censored speech, quashed debate on COVID

    It took $44 billion of Elon Musk’s money to uncover how national-security agencies like the FBI and Homeland Security — as well as Adam Schiff — conducted censorship on Twitter. Those revelations are still continuing, even while not much else seems to be changing on that platform. But what about Facebook? Who’s got $100 billion or so to buy out Mark Zuckerberg and get a peek under Meta’s hood? Reason Magazine certainly doesn’t, but it turns out that all Robby Soave needed was a lawsuit and a court order or two. Internal documents show that Facebook essentially allowed the CDC...

  • The 'Muslim vs. Christian' debate you need to watch: It features an especially adroit apologist for Islam and a relatively staunch defender of European civilization

    Although somewhat dated, a televised debate from 2019 is instructive of all the "games" certain Muslims play to exonerate their religion while projecting Islam's shortcomings onto the other — in this case, Christian Europeans.Broadcast by the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation, the debate was supposed to be an interview, but the show's Muslim host, Imran Garda, immediately launched into a diatribe against Dominik Tarczynski, a member of Poland's parliament, for that nation's refusal to take in Muslim migrants. To his credit, Tarczynski stood his ground, including when Garda introduced the "relativism" card via the 2019 New Zealand mosque massacre of...
  • Mika Brzezinski Spins Furiously for Fetterman: 'Some Might Be Surprised, How Well He Did'!

    Poor Mika Brzezinski. With John Fetterman's campaign collapsing around Democrat ears in the wake of his disastrous debate performance, the Morning Joe co-host soldiered on Thursday. Like a rescuer sifting through the rubble for signs of life after a building collapse, Brzezinski did her brave best on behalf of her fellow Democrat. Even so, she strained credulity well beyond the breaking point with this line: "Given that he did have a stroke, some might be surprised, [by] how well he did."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • We Screwed Up: Dems Freaking Out That Fetterman Agreed to Debate Oz

    Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) tried to be a good soldier and mount a good defense against John Fetterman’s disastrous debate against Dr. Mehmet Oz. Fetterman, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, failed miserably against his Republican opponent, Oz, on Tuesday night, stumbling his way through the one-hour event that most knew was an incoming trainwreck. Both men are running to fill the vacancy left by outgoing Republican Sen. Pat Toomey. Fetterman suffered a severe stroke last spring but insists he’s healthy enough, citing a doctor’s note attesting to his well-being. The letter was written by a medical professional and...

    EXPORT, Pennsylvania — For the first time in this election cycle, most of the people sitting around the restaurant bar casually watching the debate saw the depth of the effects of the stroke Lt. Gov. John Fetterman suffered in May when he began the debate Tuesday evening with a “good night” as his opening greeting. It only got worse from there. For 60 painful minutes, the York native and Harvard graduate, who had made his home in Western Pennsylvania for the last 20 years, struggled vividly with cognitive issues in handling the simplest of questions tossed his way during the...

    Media figures and conservatives reacted to Democrat John Fetterman’s debate performance against Republican Mehmet Oz during the debate on Tuesday night, calling it a “sad” disaster.As Breitbart News reported, Fetterman had a poor showing during the debate, mostly due to his speech disabilities stemming from a stroke earlier this year. Routinely, Fetterman struggled to give coherent responses to moderator questions as he confused words and paused awkwardly. Reporter Charlotte Alter of TIME called the debate a “disaster” while MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called it “painful.”so far this is a disaster for Fetterman— Charlotte Alter (@CharlotteAlter) October 26, 2022I spoke to Fetterman...

    Aios ^ | 10/25/22 | Josh Kraushaar Alayna Treene
    Capitol Hill's reaction to the Pennsylvania Senate debate was brutal for Democratic nominee John Fetterman, from Democrats and Republicans alike. Why it matters: Multiple sources wondered why Fetterman agreed to debate when he clearly wasn’t ready. Fetterman struggled at times to respond to the moderators' questions, even with the assistance of a closed captioning device. "Why the hell did Fetterman agree to this?" one Democratic lawmaker and Fetterman backer told Axios. "This will obviously raise more questions than answers about John's health." Fetterman opened the debate by calling his health the "elephant" in the room. "I had a stroke. He’s...

    Lt. Gov. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania and Mehmet Oz, the celebrity television doctor, collided Tuesday in one of the most closely watched debates of the midterm campaign. The Pennsylvania Senate matchup was both highly personal and unusual, as viewers watched Mr. Fetterman, a Democrat, rely on closed captioning to accommodate for the lingering effects of a stroke he had in May. Mr. Fetterman set out to show Pennsylvania voters that he is ready to serve — and to take on a Republican opponent who has recently gained ground in a race that could decide control of the Senate. He repeatedly...
  • Report: Half of Pennsylvania Vote-by-Mail Ballots Cast Before Fetterman’s Disastrous Debate

    Breitbart ^ | 10/26/2022 | Joel B Pollak
    Nearly half of all vote-by-mail ballots in Pennsylvania had already been cast before Tuesday night’s U.S. Senate debate, which was judged a disaster — even by Democrats — after Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D), recovering from a stroke, struggled to form coherent sentences. Fetterman had sought to avoid a debate, and his campaign has restricted his public appearances.. When he finally agreed to one, Democrats sought to delay the debate until ballots were already being cast by mail, since Democrats are more likely to use that method and more of the party’s vote would already be cast. However, given that...

    I watched the entire debate, and I have to admit that I sometimes felt bad for Fetterman. I’m sure he expected to have bounced back from the stroke quicker and stronger than he has, but Tuesday night’s debate performance merely demonstrated just how far he has to go in his recovery. Without a doubt, Pennsylvania voters, and indeed the nation, saw firsthand that he is not capable of being a U.S. senator. A condition of the debate was the allowance of a closed-captioning system to accommodate Fetterman’s cognitive impairments. The moderators were transparent about the system, but the system couldn’t...

    Longtime political observers were shocked by Democrat John Fetterman’s display in Tuesday night’s Senate debate against Dr. Mehmet Oz, in which the Pennsylvania lieutenant governor repeatedly stumbled over his words — and lapsed into incoherence on more than one occasion. At one point the tattooed 53-year-old said, “I do not believe in supporting the Supreme Court” in response to a question about whether the high court should have its traditional nine justices. In another awkward moment, Fetterman gave a jumbled answer following a long pause after he was asked about his stance on fracking. “I do support fracking and —...

Wednesday morning odds showed Oz favored by 64/100 cents, an 11 point swing.

    Last night’s debate between John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz was something new for me as a political observer and commentator. Truly, I had never seen anything like it. It was so disastrous and so scandalous, that it might end up being the most consequential debate for a major candidate in modern history. By the time the hour ended, an exceedingly short time for a debate, it was clear that the Fetterman campaign, Fetterman’s wife, and the mainstream media had been outright lying about just how bad the Democrat’s condition was. To say he could not speak coherently is putting things...

    VIDEO CLIP AT LINK........... NBC said earlier today that Pennsylvania Democratic Senate nominee John Fetterman ‘set expectations low’ during a statement he made before the debate. He certainly is not surpassing the low bar he set for himself so far. Fetterman opened the debate with an embarrassing gaffe, saying, “Hello, good night, everybody.” during his introductory statement. Fetterman has continued to stumble his way throughout the debate all night, though Oz has refrained from attacking Fetterman for his health issues so far. Instead, Oz highlighted Fetterman’s disconnect from the working class voters he claims to represent. He began by discussing...
