The media and Democrats planned and orchestrated the showdown between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden on Tuesday night at the first presidential debate.
Their feverish accusations that the president “shredded the rulebook and any sense of decorum” are rife with hypocrisy. For weeks the media, including the debate ‘moderator’ Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, have been pushing dangerous Democratic lies and propaganda in the form of ‘breaking news’ day and night.
They include the latest pre-show regurgitated “tax return bombshell” nothingburger and the totally unsubstantiated and debunked story that Trump denigrated US military soldiers in a French cemetery. Leftist bombshells, including the Russia hoax are so badly concocted that they are laughable, but their swamp supporters keep eating them up.
It is tragic that Wallace, who openly hates Trump, was chosen as the so-called moderator. Last December the Fox News host delivered a speech at the Newseum, a media museum in Washington, D.C. where he delivered a vicious verbal assault on the president.
“I believe that President Trump is engaged in the most direct sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history,” he said to loud applause, refusing to admit that much of the media’s reporting about the president is fake.
“He has done everything he can to undercut the media, to try and delegitimize us, and I think his purpose is clear: to raise doubts when we report critically about him and his administration that we can be trusted. Back in 2017, he tweeted something that said far more about him than it did about us: ‘The fake news media is not my enemy. It is the enemy of the American people,’” Wallace said.
The Democratic shill was there to bolster the ailing and often incoherent Biden, and quickly took on the role of co-debater so they could both gang up on the president. His job was to help Biden bloody Trump, not to engage in civil discourse.
His mask slipped several times, notably when he incredulously blamed white supremacists for “adding to” the billions of dollars worth of destruction and loss of life that leftist “peaceful protesters” have left in their wake after six months of anarchy across the country.
The event that was unfolding was not an exchange of opposing arguments. The president’s goal then shifted from debating to surviving an onslaught. Trump knew what was about to unfold and he was girded for battle, not debate.
“Chris Wallace posed questions to Trump aimed at cornering him while posing questions to Biden giving him a chance to explain himself. It was two against one, but one still prevailed #Debate2020,” author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza tweeted Tuesday night.
Under normal circumstances Trump can afford to look presidential, but he has been leading the country in the middle of an ongoing coup attempt and low-key civil war driven by the media, the Democratic Party, social media and bureaucrats burrowed inside his own administration.
His opponents want him and everyone associated with him imprisoned. Their henchmen Antifa and Black Lives Matter are destroying our largest cities one by one, while attacking and attempting to murder law enforcement and dismantle our public safety institutions. They are even trying to murder Trump supporters.
When Trump called out Antifa, Biden repeated the bogus claim of FBI Director Christopher Wray that Antifa was more of a movement or ideology rather than an organization. “Antifa is an idea, not an organization,” Biden said. Trump retorted: “Oh, you got to be kidding.
The organizer of a demonstration against police brutality in Southern California was accused Tuesday of trying to kill Trump’s supporters.
Tatiana Turner faces charges of attempted murder for driving into a crowd of counterprotesters Saturday with “the intent to kill,” Orange County prosecutors allege, after she ran over a woman’s head and seriously injured a man who broke his leg.
“She positioned her vehicle to be used as a backup weapon and she used that vehicle as a deadly weapon, willing to injure and kill those who stood in her way,” District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a statement.
Democratic mayors and governors have also locked down their economies while stonewalling Republican and bipartisan attempts to deliver economic assistance to their constituents. They trumpet the coronavirus death rate but attack every possible treatment and vaccine that could save lives.
These are dangerous, demented opponents and Trump is the man in the arena who want to save his country and his people. He can’t even count on support from every member of his own party. He has survived politically up to this point only because of a rabid and loyal base that refuses to abandon him, even though he has been maligned with hoaxes and lies from the media establishment and his toxic enemies for his entire presidency.
This is an extraordinary time in American history and Trump’s opponents are violent, corrupt and radicalized. They will do anything to win, including rigging elections and forging ballots with the help of corrupt judges.
Trump would have been derelict in his duty as president to protect our democratic institutions if he did not come to the debate with a sullied opponent ready for a brawl.
