How Biden stacked 2024 debates with Democrat moderators | Eastern North Carolina Now

worse than stacked Presidential Debate Commission


The old Presidential Debate Commissions always stacked the deck against Republicans with lefty moderators.  Although it was nominally "bi-partisan", former Senator Bob Dole pointed out that he personally knew all the members of their board and all of them were Biden supporters.  The "modertors" they chose from the liberal media were so one-sided that Trump ended up being double-teamed by both the "moderator" and Biden.  He was hardly the first GOP nominee put in that position by this stacked commission.

One of the few competent things that Ronna Romney McDaniel did as RNC chairman was to get RNC to take a stand to reject the Presidential Debate Commission's control of the debates and declare that the two political parties would negotiate the rules directly to make them more even handed.  However, the Democrat "lawfare" against President Trump interrupted any action to set up debates.

Instead, the Biden campaign jumped in and challenged Trump to debate, using their rules, stacked even worse than the Presidential Debate Commission.  They launched it with a cocky challenge from Biden that although only 14 seconds long was spliced 6 times.  Biden said he would only debate twice, both early in the campaign, and only on leftwing outlets and with no audience.  The Biden campaign refused to negotiate. It was on their terms or not at all.

The first debate, in June, far earlier than any previous presidential debate ever, is on CNN, a very left wing outlet.  It is one with a history of giving the questions ahead of time to their preferred candidate, something that would be critical to Biden's performance.  Worst of all, the "modertors" who are given extensive control of the process, have histories as Democrat political operatives.  Jake Tapper has gone between political jobs with Democrats and the Democrat-supporting leftwing media.  Dana Bash's husband was a Democrat consultant.

Worst of all, these biased "modertors" will steer the "debate" with questions they compose, which will certainly be geared to keep Biden away from having to talk about things he does not want to, and to put out questions in ways that will be most difficult for Trump.  Trump will be triple teamed, having to debate one Democrat opponent and two Democrat "moderators".

If a debate is going to have two moderators, the only fair arrangement is to let each candidate choose one.  Another option would be to do it like the Lincoln-Douglas debates, the gold standard of American political debates, and have no moderator to get in the way of the candidates at all.

If a debate is going to use issue questions, the LIncoln-Douglas Debates also provide a gold standard.  In those debates, each candidate composed half the questions.

After the STOU address, when Biden was apparently pumped up on something, Trump has recently suggested a drug test for each candidate before the debate and the Biden camp screamed like stuck pigs.  One remembers that in the 2020 debates there was an agreement that each candidate could be checked for earpieces where they could receive prompts, but at the last minute Biden refused to comply.

How could Trump play that?  Have his own drug test and show the results and if Biden appears amped up in the debate, challenge him to a drug test live during the debate.  On the possible earpiece, the Trump campaign needs some electronic wizzards to monitor for such transmissions, and if they locate them, they could do one of two things.  They could jam them.  Or they could record them and release the recordings after the debate.

Tying Trump up with these fake political prosecutions has allowed Biden to get the jump on Trump on the debates but Trump still needs to do everything possible to try to level the playing field, which presently is very stacked.

Let's see if the AZ courts agree.

I explained it to you seven comments down, Little Bobbie. When voters vote for a Governor, the vote for a person. When they vote in the presidential race, they vote for a slate of electors who will then vote their state for president and vice president. When Stacey Abrams contested her election, she asserted she had been elected. She was the appropriate one to make that objection. In a presidential race, the ones cheated out of election were the actual electors, so they were the ones to assert that they had been elected if the election were held honestly.

This has happened in presidential election before. What has not happened before is one side trying to criminalize this as a political hit on their opponents. That is just part of the weaponization of the judicial process that the Democrats are engaged in.

In short, alternate electors are not "fake" electors. They were the nominees for elector that ran on what the official count shows as the losing side but assert they were denied election through electoral misconduct, and like Stacey Abrams assert that they were the duly elected holders of office.

Noticed no one has much to say about the fake electors.

Both sides work hard to ensure victory and at times both sides cross a line.

WOKE cares nothing about election integrity. They will steal them anyway they can and scream like stuck pigs if anyone complains about it. That's whats so wrong with them.

AZ not so much huh?
MAGA- couldn’t care less about elections, as long as their guy wins. And that is what’s so wrong with them.

What I am waiting for are the indictments coming out of the Missouri Attorney General's investigation of election interference. I would love to see a bunch of these crooked partisan DA's and judges doing time in a Missouri prison, Merrick Garland, too.

When there is an election for an office like Governor that is contested, each of the candidates will usually claim to be elected, like Stacey Abrams in Georgia did for years. In a presidential election, on the other hand, voters do not directly vote for president, but vote for a slate of electors pledged to a candidate for president. When the results are disputed, then there are two slates of rival electors who contend they were the ones rightfully elected. 2020 is not the first US presidential election to have rival slates of electors, but it is the first time one side has abused the judicial system to try to prosecute their political adversaries.

Who ought to be indicted in Arizona are the election officials in Maricopa County, but with a Democrat AG that is not going to happen.

Back to the original topic, any debate handled on CNN with Jake Tapper involved is going to be rigged for the Democrat. There are no two ways about that.

Explain the fake electors. Forget mob attacking the capitol and explain the fake electors. I can forgive the mob, but will never forgive the dumpster and the fake electors ;18 of which have been indicted in AZ.

Jake (or should that be "Joke") Tapper is an extreme partisan hack who should not be anywhere near a fair political debate. You can be sure that his questions on illegal immigration, one of the two top issues for voters, will be designed to cover for Biden, as they will on all issues.

There is also little doubt that crooked CNN will give Biden the questions ahead of time, like they got caught doing with Hillary Clinton.
