    I've had some time to think about these debates, and a few thoughts I think people aren't talking about (enough).. After the debates I'm seeing a lot of furled brows and shrugged shoulders here and everywhere I go (In the right wing). I would like to offer some words: Trump is a better debater than Hillary is. You don't get to where he is without being good at this. Without winning. Winning arguments, winning negotiations and being alpha male. When the debates began, Trump stopped in front of his podium and made HER walk to HIM. This is a powerplay...

    Hillary was well rehearsed and polished indeed, but she had help from the moderator. What did Lester ask Hillary that was tough? He asked Trump four tough questions: 1) He asked Trump about his taxes. 2) He asked Trump about the birth certificate. 3) He pressed Trump on his opposition to Iraq. 4) He asked Trump about his comments on Hillary not having the "look" of being President and then proceeded to repeat Meghan Kelly's point about Trump calling women pigs, etc. 5) He rebuffed Trump on stop and frisk (saying that stop and frisk was found unConstitutional). He responded,...

  • Five Times Lester Holt Shilled for Hillary Clinton at First Debate

    NBC News’ Lester Holt had his “Candy Crowley” moment at the first debate of the 2016 presidential election on Monday night, bowing to pressure from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the liberal media by “fact-checking” Republican nominee Donald Trump on the question of his support for the Iraq War.

    Those who are satisfied with business as usual will say Hillary won. Those who want higher taxes and bigger government will say Hillary. Those who think the Iran Nuke deal is a good deal will say Hillary. Those who think trade deals like NAFTA and TPP are great for America will say Hillary. Those who think inner city blacks and minorities have been treated great by the democrats and their socialist policies will say Hillary. Those who think Hillary will appoint great judges will say she won. Those who think Hillary can securely safeguard our nation's classified information and will...

    Police escorted Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein off Hofstra University’s campus this afternoon before tonight’s first presidential debate. Authorities encountered Stein on the college campus in Hempstead, New York, and asked the third-party candidate, who has not garnered enough support to participate in the debates, to show the proper credentials, which she could not do, police said. She was “nicely escorted” off the grounds around 2:30 p.m. Eastern time, a Nassau County Police Department spokesman told ABC News. Stein tweeted about the incident, saying she was on the campus “doing an interview” when police put her and her team...

    ST. PAUL—A new Minnesota presidential poll continues to show a closer contest than is common in the state, with Hillary Clinton up by 7 points. However, if Minnesota voters are like Americans in general, half were waiting for debates to begin to make up their minds. A just-released SurveyUSA poll from the Twin Cities' KSTP-TV indicates that if the election were held before the Monday, Sept. 26, opening presidential debate that 46 percent would vote for Democrat Clinton while 39 percent were behind Republican Trump....

    MSNBC unveiled graphics on Monday of the respective “tasks” that presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton need to accomplish at their first debate, including that Trump needs to “stop lying.” MTV national correspondent Jamil Smith appeared on MSNBC to discuss what the candidates need to accomplish Monday night during the debate, and the left-leaning network provided visual displays of his takes. “First thing’s first, he needs to stop lying,” Smith said. “He needs to respect the intelligence of the American people.”

    CNBC ^ | September 26, 2016 | Katie Little
    As the first one-on-one presidential debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump nears, Trump has surged in the polls and the candidates are now in a dead heat. A new poll from Bloomberg shows Trump leading his Democratic rival by 2 points. Other polls show Clinton still holding the lead, though not by much. Clinton leads Trump by just 1.5 points, according to a Real Clear Politics poll average, down from 2.4 points a day ago. As recently as last month, this spread was considerably wider, with Clinton leading Trump by as much as 7.6 points. FiveThirtyEight's forecast...

    It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, mainly because it’s pretty obvious what has happened: Trump has regained momentum (if, indeed, he really ever lost it at all), aided by Cankles abrupt “fainting” spell on 9/11 and her “deplorables” comment. More important than those, however, I think Trump’s series of policy speeches with a teleprompter, in which he laid out solid, logical, and achievable programs reassured millions of Americans that, in fact, he can and should be taken seriously. These speeches nuked any notions that he “didn’t have specifics,” but also (in tried-and-true political fashion) spoke to...

    Dirty Democrats want All to Hail Hillary before NBC says goodnight, because as far as they are concerned the Fundamental Transformation of America must continue long after November 8 On behalf of the Ruling Democrat Party, at 9 p.m. tonight, NBC will showcase the worst candidate for presidency ever in the running, next to her mentor Barack Hussein Obama. Upwards of 100 million viewers are expected to watch the first ‘Presidential Debate’ of 2016. We’ve seen the Mainstream Media doing dirty Democrat work before in 2012, but this time out it’s NBC ‘moderator’ Lester Holt as CNN’s Candy Crowley, who...
  • NBC Gaming The Optics With Custom Podium To Enlarge Hillary Clinton’s Stature and Visibility

    The Last Refuge ^ | 09/25/16 | Sundance
    There was some discussion last week about how NBC would try to physically aid candidate Hillary Clinton’s optics with a custom designed debate platform intended to give the viewer the a false illusion of scale and scope. Well, it appears that NBC has done exactly that. A comparison of both debate podiums reflects that one is visibly larger, and taller, than the other; and a debate standing platform is evident as the stage is being set up.
  • No ear mics allowed for debate moderators; But what about the candidates?

    The presidential debate moderators will not be allowed to wear earpieces, according to published reports. But what about the presidential candidates themselves? A voter in Maryland wrote Federal Elections Commissioner Matthew Petersen on Sept. 8 seeking a "clear response" to that question. "I read reports that during the televised event questioning each of the candidates on their qualifications to serve as Commander in Chief, that Secretary Clinton had a microphone in her ear to receive prompting and guidance from advisers off stage," wrote Laurence B of Columbia, MD. [A check of his name and address at the Maryland State Board...

    Tomorrow night we’ll see the much-awaited matchup one-on-one “debate” between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Her staff is working with the debate commission to erase height and stamina advantages of her opponent. They asked that the debate be by seated opponents which was refused as was their effort to allow her to stand on a hidden stool. Her podium will be lowered though so when the camera sweeps from candidate to candidate viewers might not notice he is considerably taller than she. Outside of the debate hall in Charlotte, North Carolina, another drama is taking place. Apparently "Black Lives Matters"...

    Hillary Clinton is going to be armed with facts, logic and policy chops at tomorrow night’s debate. It’ll be like bringing a knife to a gunfight. Unless Donald Trump has been hitting the briefing books and spending his evenings perusing back issues of National Affairs and The Economist — hey, the man has surprised us before! — it seems unlikely that he will have as many facts and details at his command as Clinton. And it doesn’t matter. Nobody comes out of a debate saying, “Wow, Senator Blutarsky had an impressively detailed answer on how to save 11 percent at...

    When Juanita Broaddrick heard Bill Clinton mistress Gennifer Flowers could be attending the first presidential debate as Donald Trump's guest, she says that might be an opportunity she would welcome, too. "Sure I would like to be at such an epic event just to look Hillary in the face," Broaddrick exclusively tells The American Mirror. When asked what she would say to Clinton, Broaddrick responded, "Remember me? I'm the one your husband raped and you threatened. I'm still here telling the truth and you are a liar." Broaddrick says then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton raped her in a Little Rock...

    "I recognize … it is unprecedented, at least in modern times, to hold a conference to talk about special precautions that need to be taken because your opponent is a habitual liar. But that is the circumstance that we are in," Palmieri said Friday. She went on, and continued to work the referees by stating her team is worried about the moderators situation. "For the moderator to let lies … go unchallenged would give Donald Trump an unfair advantage, and we believe it is the role of the moderator, particularly in this case to call out those lies and to...
