suppose first is the format FOX chose to handle 17 candidates.
Seven during the cocktail hour and the main bout with the other
ten during prime time. One
minute for a candidate to "respond to answer each question
addressed to them by moderators Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace and
Bret Baier during the program, which begins at 9 p.m. Eastern
time on August 6. Candidates who are called upon will be given
only 30 seconds for rebuttals. If a candidate's name is invoked
during someone else's answer to a question, that candidate will
get a chance to respond for a length of time at the moderator's
campaign of one leading candidate believes after communications
with Fox executives that there will not be a rigorous attempt
to make sure all ten candidates get equal time to speak. Fox strongly
contested that assertion in a statement issued Friday."
concerns were valid and that's just what happened. While Ted Cruz
is constitutionally ineligible, which he doesn't care about, was
ignored for 40 straight minutes during the debate. The big bucks
moderators, Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace and Bret Baier couldn't
get enough air time preening in front of the cameras. They spent
a whopping 31% of the debate time on themselves!
opening five minutes was rank amateur at its worst - especially
for "seasoned" anchors like the aforementioned. Megyn Kelly was
perhaps the worst as she giggled like a little kid let loose in
the toy store. All three seemed unable to pull it together and
bring the candidates out, but thankfully, they finally managed.
that the "high fives" stopped after all the lights went out August
6th following the "debate". The following night on FOX with a
24 million viewers record shattering rating, from O'Reilly to
Kelly to Hannity, it was a rather nauseating love fest between
Kelly and her co-moderators from one show to the next.
millions already know and a seriously healthy number of them have
blasted, FOX set up Donald Trump, hands down, no doubt about it.
The first question right out of the chute by salivating Bret Baier
was obviously planned to stretch Trump on the rack. They, the
political hacks behind the scenes, know every little thing about
those candidates before the camera even starts rolling. The question
was deliberate because they knew the other ten candidates wouldn't
dare say no to the question:
"Gentlemen, we know how much you love hand-raising questions.
So we promise, this is the only one tonight: the only one. Is
there anyone on stage, and can I see hands, who is unwilling tonight
to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the Republican
party and pledge to not run an independent campaign against that
we're looking for you to raise your hand now — raise your hand
now if you won't make that pledge tonight.
Trump to be clear, you're standing on a Republican primary debate
"I fully understand.
"The place where the RNC will give the nominee the nod.
I fully understand.
"And that experts say an independent run would almost certainly
hand the race over to Democrats and likely another Clinton. You
can't say tonight that you can make that pledge?"
never watch the debates. I can't stand to watch or listen to most
of the candidates because I, follow this vomit seven days a week.
But, I did watch and Trumps response to Baier's poison arrow probably
shouldn't have surprised anyone:
"I cannot say. I have to respect the person that, if it's not
me, the person that wins, if I do win, and I'm leading by quite
a bit, that's what I want to do. I can totally make that pledge.
If I'm the nominee, I will pledge I will not run as an independent.
But — and I am discussing it with everybody, but I'm, you know,
talking about a lot of leverage. We want to win, and we will win.
But I want to win as the Republican. I want to run as the Republican
let's break down Trump's response because all the media - especially
FOX - have replayed over and over and over is that Trump will
run as an independent and hand Hillary the Hun a victory in 2016.
Is there anyone on stage, and can I see hands, who is unwilling
tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the
Republican party and pledge to not run an independent campaign
against that person.
"I cannot say. I have to respect the person that, if it's not
me, the person that wins, if I do win, and I'm leading by quite
a bit, that's what I want to do."
of: I can't say I would pledge my support to the eventual nominee
of the Republican Party.
not pledge not to run as an independent against the nominee. That
segment of his response is poison to Republicans and independents.
Trump is nobody's fool and I'm sure his advisors and supporters
have reminded him what happened with Ross Perot. It doesn't appear
to have hurt him in the polls, but when push comes to shove time,
if Trump doesn't get the nomination next August, will he actually
run as an independent and become a very hated man in this country?
If he does it will be all about his ego.
truth, although this may anger some Trump supporters - and believe
me, I am sympathetic to the hit job FOX deliberately rolled out
with question one - his full response is rather nonsensical. He'll
respect the nominee, but "if it's not me, the person that wins,
if I do win, and I'm leading by quite a bit, that's what I want
to do." He then goes on about "a lot of leverage" whatever that
means. And finally, he wants to run as the Republican nominee
and win under that party.
many others, including candidate Carly Fiorina have pointed out,
Trump has tapped into a very large and very angry segment of the
population who as one pol dared to say - have given the establishment
Republicans 'the finger'. Trump should be given every credit whether
you like him, don't like him or haven't decided for bringing the
issue of illegals slaughtering innocent Americans every day in
this country, the mass destruction to our economy because of "free"
trade agreements and how shamefully our veterans are treated.
was it really a debate? One minute to respond? Please. One minute
liners are for comedy clubs and opening lines on late night talk
sure how many watched the cocktail hour first debate with the
7 lowest polled candidates, but the arena was virtually empty.
I'll come clean, I didn't watch that one myself, but did get a
chuckle later when I saw the photo of dirt bag Lindsay Graham
on a 'riser' so he wouldn't appear so short on the boob tube.
Anyway, I don't know how that debate went, but the prime time
two hours was no debate in my book.
FOX moderators were literally drooling at the mouth just waiting
to see which of the candidates would pounce on each other. A few
exchanges fulfilled their wet dreams in technicolor. Megyn Kelly
squealed with delight when Jabba the Hustler, er, Gov. Chris Christie
and Rand Paul sparred over Paul's objection to the shredding of
the Bill of Rights. A minor skirmish where Rand Paul correctly
and passionately pointed out all the spying on innocent Americans
is in violation of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the U.S.
Constitution. Christie cares nothing for your rights; he wants
more spying on innocent Americans.
grilled Rand Paul on foreign aid and gasp! should Israel get money?
Rand Paul attempted to defend his position with a true statement
regarding cutting funding to Israel. See
this video: "Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu of Israel once
suggested that his government should wean itself off of foreign
aid from the United States. Such a move would actually make the
Jewish state stronger, he argued in a 1996 joint speech before
where in the U.S. Constitution does it authorize Congress to steal
the fruits of our labor to give to any government for any reason,
period. Rand Paul attempted to bring some harsh reality to that
issue: "Do you borrow money from China to send it to anyone? Out
of your surplus, you can help your allies, and Israel is a great
ally. And this is no particular animus of Israel, but what I will
say, and I will say over and over again, we cannot give away money
we don't have. We do not project power from bankruptcy court.
We're borrowing a million dollars a minute."
there is the big stink bomb. With the Congressionally
created 'national' debt at nearly $19 TRILLION dollars,
thieves in Congress who are no different than bandits of the old
west robbing banks and trains, borrow money from foreign countries
and give it to another foreign country in "aid" from we the people.
OUR purse. OUR debt. Foreign aid to Israel or any other
country is DEBT FUNDING DEBT. Borrowing a million dollars
a minute. Does that sink in to voters yet?
rest of the debate if you can even call it that was dull as dish
water. Jeb Bush looked constipated the whole time. Rather wooden
like Al Gore(bechev) hoping the moderators wouldn't ask him anything
other than how's things up in Kennebunkport? Scott Walker seemed
rather lost and dreamy when in fact, one must give him credit
for being a fierce fighter for what he believes in; the war he
rightly conducted against those unions in Wisconsin is a prime
example. Huckabee was his usual pastoral self standing up for
unborn babies and I thank him for reminding Americans about that
slaughter of innocents every day - 3,000 unborn babies who not
only won't see the light, we now know many were harvested for
parts after aborting them. Savage and barbaric.
Ben Carson was pretty much ignored as he quipped when finally
called upon. He is most certainly a very gifted, talented and
highly intelligent man. Gentle and in my opinion, too gentle for
the ugliness of politics in this country. His heartfelt closing
statement was truly the highlight of the end which couldn't come
the only one to separate Siamese twins. The — the only one to
operate on babies while they were still in mother's womb, the
only one to take out half of a brain, although you would think,
if you go to Washington, that someone had beat me to it. But I
— but I'm very hopeful that I'm not the only one who's willing
to pick up the baton of freedom, because freedom is not free,
and we must fight for it every day. Every one of us must fight
for it, because we're fighting for our children and the next generation."
didn't we hear anything about? Well, we heard
a lot of jaw jacking from current and former governor, Jeb! Bush.
(No, that's his logo for this race Jeb! Okay to laugh now.) Same
as the others which was nothing more than a review of resumes
not completely factual, but inflation of job performance seems
to be acceptable in politics. However, other than Donald Trump's
comments about China, there was no real discussion about getting
us out of job killing "free" trade agreements.
was no discussion about the head of the beast siphoning off the
life blood of this country - the "FED". One reference to the debt
by Rand Paul, otherwise the
coming financial meltdown was completely ignored. No discussion
about the dollar and what's happening because the majority of
the American people have no knowledge on those issues. No discussion
about getting us out of the United Nothing - the UN and why we
must. No discussion about the true meaning of a limited form of
constitutional government or even anything approaching solutions.
again, the format of cramming all those candidates together with
a one minute limit to speak in my opinion was a disaster. For
those of us who already know the record of those candidates, last
Thursday night's event was rather meaningless. We already know
Ricky Perry is a complete failure when it comes to stopping the
massive flood of illegals crossing the border here in Texas. Lindsay
Graham is toxic to freedom and liberty and has never introduced
legislation in his life that would solve any problem. Bobby Jindal
and Marco Rubio, like Ted Cruz, are also constitutionally ineligible
but they also don't care.
is the driving force behind who will eventually stay in the race.
And, forgive me, but I must write how I feel - Jeb! Bush, a rank
political whore hauled in $11.6 million bux in 16 days averaging
$700,000 per day according to FEC filings. In the pocket of corporations
and the shadow government. Dr. Carson who joined the race in May
has been bringing in $146,000 a day. Ineligible candidates, Cruz
and Rubio average about $110,00 a day while fairy Lindsay Graham
brought in $3.7 million in the second quarter; $1.5 million came
from his senate war chest. Down at the bottom where he deserves,
Ricky Perry managed $1 million in one month. Wonder what happened
to his big oil buddies wallets? Rand Paul brought in $7 million
in the second quarter.
one can see, obscene amounts of money go into those campaigns,
but by the time the first primaries get underway in February 2016,
likely a good number will have dropped out; the
tentative 2016 presidential primary schedule is here.
for 'The Donald', while it may appear he has endless deep pockets,
if his numbers and support drop significantly, one has to wonder
how many more of his millions will he spend to stay in the race?
for future debates, there is a slew of them scheduled; see
complete list here. I suppose we'll see how they are handled
as far as giving all the candidates enough time to to give the
voters a better idea of their position on the issues.
don't expect any questions about abolishing the unconstitutional
"Fed", getting us out of the UN, abolishing unconstitutional cabinets
like the Federal Department of Education and the EPA. During the
debate, Rand Paul touted his non-solution
of a flat tax, Huckabee also wants to keep feeding the sweat
off your back to the FED via another toxic poison, the mis-named
"fair" tax. Dr. Ben Carson's "solution" to the issue of taxes
was, well, just another non-solution as the responses by Rand
Paul and Mike Huckabee:
"What I agree with is that we need a significantly changed taxation
system. And the one that I've advocated is based on tithing, because
I think God is a pretty fair guy. And he said, you know, if you
give me a tithe, it doesn't matter how much you make. If you've
had a bumper crop, you don't owe me triple tithes. And if you've
had no crops at all, you don't owe me no tithes. So there must
be something inherently fair about that.
that's why I've advocated a proportional tax system. You make
$10 billion, you pay a billion. You make $10, you pay one. And
everybody gets treated the same way. And you get rid of the deductions,
you get rid of all the loopholes, and…" The moderator moved on.
was NEVER the intention of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution
to implement a federal income tax (just
scroll down to A Pioneer on the withholding issue - Vivien
Kellems and read) which now devours your paycheck to give to foreign
financial entities, not to run the federal behemoth government.
tens of millions of Americans know nothing about the disabilities
of our currency, why we need to get out of the UN and so forth,
but if the candidates spent a year on the road educating them
as I did when I ran for Congress, things might be different. Don't
hold your breath.
have no doubt Donald Trump will continue to stick with his 'signature'
issue, illegal aliens, along with trade issues, but he needs to
give more focused answers on whatever issue he discusses. 'Drifting'
off subject or vagueness, besides just being himself, seems to
be the major criticisms; at least what I've read on the Internet
in endless pieces.
no mistake, though, the GOP 'establishment' sell outs want the
Donald to disappear sooner rather than later. With media heavies
like Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace manning the guns
against Trump, their job is making sure (God forbid), Jeb! Bush
stays at the top of the list for the GOP nomination.
for debates for candidates of the Democratic/Communist Party USA,
the imbecile who heads up the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who
recently got caught with her knickers down when she couldn't or
the difference between a Democrat and a socialist (of course,
there is none), has allegedly scheduled six debates for her party's
presidential candidates. It's a bit difficult with the 'presumptive
nominee', Marxist Hillary Bagman Clinton, going to trial in January
a defendant in a federal RICO (Racketeer Influence and Corruption
Act) lawsuit and the FBI now pursuing
a criminal probe into her emails while playing Secretary of
State. Oh, my, what a tangled web empty headed Debbie has to deal
with - unless the criminal impostor in the White House throws
Hillary under the bus.

a short note about 9/11. The cost of America's
undeclared "war" (invasion) in Afghanistan has now reached $1
trillion borrowed dollars - massive debt heaped on us all based
on what happened on 9/11. Regular readers of my column know I
continue to press for the truth about the events of 9/11. Military
grade nanothermite is not a conspiracy theory. It was found and
tested from the rubble at the twin towers. A new, powerful film
has been released: The
Anatomy of a Great Deception. For full disclosure I receive
no compensation, but I want you to get a copy (or a few) and share
it with others or give a copy as a present. I've purchased half
a dozen copies and given them to individuals I believe seek the
truth. It's very powerful simply because it's one 'ordinary' man's
story who ask a simple question that led him to a not so simple
journey. There is factual information in this film that many have
never heard about but everyone should. Just a
suggestion, order more than one and give one to a friend.]
