Americans authority conspiracy theories Debate Donald Trump enlightened government is slavery Headline News Intelwars left vs. right paradigm lie Leftists liberation Mainstream media matrix no masters no rulers no slaves oppression Self-ownership sheep Society the system trust is zeron voluntaryism


This article was contributed by The Wealth Research Group. 

Why is America getting split apart? What is the underlying cause of the division, the root of the issue, the heart of the rift that is visibly growing between left and right?

If you ask a Trump supporter or a Trump hater, they would give you one of a myriad of answers, but the bottom line, as far as we’re concerned, is trust in authority.

Trump’s supporters want him in office, because they trust him. They have no faith in career politicians at all; there’s a growing number of Americans, Europeans, and other westerners, who have come to the conclusion that career politicians are bought and paid for, represent interests that are not those of the majority of Americans and are colluding with foreign interests to globalize and to strip the rights of the average person. In developing nations, where distrust in government is the norm, this seems obvious, but westerners somehow forgot that governments have historically been a hindering force, not a liberating one.

If the media calls these anti-establishment ideas conspiracy theories, then Trump supporters consider it a way for the mainstream media to delegitimize what they think in their heart of hearts to be true, thus they don’t panic when the media attempts to debunk anything.

They simply do not trust the mainstream media at all.

My purpose is not to debate whether they’re right or wrong; it is to show that in today’s world, there are tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions of people, who have either zero faith or well below average confidence in their elected officials, whom they deem as crooked and working to enslave, deprive and censor them.

These issues are not to be brushed off and they’re not only shared by people on the sidelines or fringes of society; conspiracy theories once deemed as “nuts” have come to fruition, and now a great many feel enlightened about the nature of politics, big business and the deep state and the relationships that form between global interests.

As long as the system was reasonably working for most, they just sleepwalked through life, not caring about these issues, which have been known to many of us for decades. The ignorant were blissfully enjoying the invisible cage.

You and I have known about the elites, the deep state agenda, illegitimate warfare, global interests and secret societies for a long time; now there are many more who do, since the tragic comedy that is politics is much more visible to us. We can see their mistakes, their lack of self-discipline, their hypocrisy and double standards.

Criticism is labeled as spreading fake news and is censored; it’s a thin line that tech giants are walking on.

Wealth Research Group does not believe that these dividing issues are going away whatsoever; trust is impossible to rebuild, once it’s fully lost. Permanently shutting down Trump’s Twitter account may end up being a disastrous decision for this country.

While calls for impeachment have been made and articles have already been drafted, Trump is talking about building his own communications platform.

As I said before, it’s difficult to publish our letter without getting comments from both the left and the right, arguing their case.

Our mission is to analyze the politics and then translate it into finances.

In the end, being an efficient person requires handling YOUR BUSINESS, even in the midst of social crises. Stay disciplined about your affairs first; nothing is more important than realizing that being the best version of yourself is the most effective thing you can do for others.

black Americans Debate immigration Intelwars Left-wing celebrities mark ruffalo Native Americans SLAVERY virtue signaling

Far-left actor Mark Ruffalo tweets, ‘Unless you are Native American you are an immigrant in this country. FULL STOP.’ And the backlash is severe.

Far-left activist actor Mark Ruffalo — who ripped Ellen DeGeneres’ call for “kindness” over her photo with former President George W. Bush and said his mother’s illegal abortion helped shape his pro-choice views — was feeling that ol’ virtue-signaling spirit again during the presidential debate Thursday.

What happened?

Seems Ruffalo was put off by a back-and-forth about illegal immigration and felt the need to educate all of us on the topic. Red State said the actor’s since-deleted Twitter post read, “Unless you are Native American you are an immigrant in this country. FULL STOP. We all came from somewhere else. We are living on their ancestral land. We all came from somewhere else.”

Oh boy.

As you might guess, Ruffalo’s misguided declaration set off more than a few people:

  • “African Americans are not immigrants,” one commenter wrote. “We were enslaved and dragged here. Slavery is not immigration. You’re too grown, and we’re too far into 2020, for you to say something this ridiculous.”
  • “I remember those old good days were immigrants worked 9-5 on the cotton fields earning a decent salary,” another user quipped.
  • “My peeps were not born here and they certainly did not immigrant,” another user said. “They were stolen from their home lands and brought here in chains. Please don’t leave this fact out of the equation.”

Another commenter echoed the same sentiments — and added an additional observation: “Native Americans came here from somewhere else too! You think they grew up out of the ground one day. BLACK AMERICANS were brought here against our will and YOUR ancestors forced into 200 years of slavery to build this country. We aren’t immigrants. F*** you Mark.”

Historian Blair Amadeus Imani offered a more civil correction to Ruffalo:

“Mark, there’s the descendants of enslaved people. We don’t consider ourselves immigrants we were forcibly brought here against our will,” she wrote.

Ruffalo appreciated the gesture: “Dear Blair, you are right on here. That is profound and true. I stand corrected. I always learn from you and always come away more mindful of the power and depth of our words and what they mean. But also what is being left out of the conversation. Thank you.”

Red State said Ruffalo deleted the tweet after many demands to take it down.

Border Security coyotes David hogg Debate Donald Trump Illegal Immigration Intelwars Jemele hill Leftists

Trump refers to ‘coyotes’ during illegal immigration segment at debate — and Twitter ‘blue check marks’ dazzle with their ignorance

Leftists love to call President Donald Trump names, particularly with regard to his cognitive abilities. Idiot, stupid, moron — yup, that’s the leader of the free world, they say.

But during Thursday night’s debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, Trump apparently really stepped in it when he referred to “coyotes” — i.e., human smugglers — who illegally bring children across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Why? Well, some pretty prominent Trump-haters on Twitter lost their minds — no jokes, please — because they actually appeared to believe Trump was talking about the furry, walks-on-all-fours, looks-like-a-wolf coyotes.


A mind is a terrible thing to waste

First up is everybody’s favorite scowling, skinny-armed, gun-confiscation poster boy David Hogg:

“Imagine calling the immigrant parents that bring their children to the United States for a better life ‘coyotes,'” Hogg wrote. “The level of xenophobia is sickening.”

His post as of Friday morning was still active — and being ratioed to death. Check it out while it’s hot.

Next up is Jemele Hill, that former ESPN host posing as a sociopolitical raconteur. The Atlantic gave her a shot, if that’s any indication. Anyway, Hill reacted with the following:

For real, dawg.

Or how about Dar’shun Kendrick? She’s not only an attorney but also a member of the Georgia House of Representatives — and the chief deputy whip of its Democratic wing, no less. Kendrick was in total disbelief that an animal could carry a human across the border:

“How the hell does a coyote bring a whole human across the border?!” she responded, dumbfounded. “Lord—–stop talking.”

It’s worth it to note that Kendrick didn’t take kindly Friday morning to contrarians snapping back at her:

Image source: Twitter/DarshunKendrick screenshot

And it also may come as no surprise that Kendrick last year infamously touted a “Testicular Bill of Rights” to protest the Georgia House passing a bill banning abortions after fetal heartbeat detection. Her bill aimed to “regulate” men’s bodies, for example, by banning vasectomies and forcing them to get permission from their sexual partners before getting Viagra.

Oh, there’s more. Much more.

The latter three aren’t the only unsharpened tools in the shed, apparently:

Omri Ceren, national security adviser for Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), had the following to say in response to Hill’s unfortunate query:

“It’s not the lack of knowledge,” he wrote, “it’s the confidence in that lack of knowledge.”

Indeed, it would appear that members of the left for so long and so often have told themselves they’re so much smarter than those rubes from flyover country that they’ve ended up utterly convinced of that narrative — to the point of collective ignorance in regard to uncomplicated, easily accessible truths.

Debate Donald Trump Economy Election 2020 Focus group Intelwars swing voters undecided voters watch

Every single hand goes up for President Trump in post-debate focus group of undecided voters on who would be better for economy

Pollster Frank Luntz put together a virtual focus group of undecided voters from swing states Thursday night to get their impressions of the second and final debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The economy question

In an eye-opening moment near the end of the session, Luntz asked the 13 focus group participants the following question, “Who do you believe would do a better job with the economy after listening to tonight’s debate, Joe Biden or Donald Trump?”

Luntz wanted a show of hands for each candidate — and when he asked who thought Biden would be better for the economy, not one hand went up.

When he asked if Trump would do a better job with the economy, every single hand went up.

“Clearly by that Trump is the preferred candidate,” Luntz said in response.

Individual responses

Luntz then turned to the focus group participants to get their individual reasons for preferring Trump over Biden.

Jennifer from Michigan said Trump “has knowledge and a skill set to actually bring us ahead. I think that prior to COVID … the first three years of his presidency, he was doing great. And then COVID happened, and our economy has obviously gone into the tanker … and if there’s somebody who’s going to get us out, I believe it’s going to be him.”

Elizabeth from Georgia said that before the coronavirus pandemic, the economy was “better than it has been before. Our 401Ks have grown like crazy, and even in this pandemic look at the stock market — it’s crazy. Everybody had jobs … and here in Georgia, everybody can still have a job. Everywhere I go there’s ‘help wanted’ signs, everywhere.”

Tasha from Ohio said that navigating the economy “will take a special skill set” and that Trump “has shown us that he can recover in many different areas.”

Opinion: Undecided voters assess final Trump-Biden debate

Anything else?

A tweet from Luntz offered some words from focus group members to describe Trump and Biden based on their debate performance:

According to the Los Angeles Times, Luntz selected participants only if they met the following criteria: Currently registered to vote in one of 11 swing states; self-described as “possible” Biden or Trump voters; self-defined independents; and consider themselves “undecided.” Participants were compensated $100 each for their time, the paper said.

The Times also said that, along with Luntz, it asked Sewell Chan, its editorial page editor, to pose questions to the focus group and provide analysis. He was pictured on the bottom of the screen next to Luntz.

Verdict from Luntz?

Luntz told Bloomberg Politics the debate was a tie — which he said bodes well for Biden:

Biden Debate Intelwars trump Trump biden Trump biden debate

Debate recap: More presidential Trump hits Biden as ‘corrupt,’ ‘all talk, no action’ politician in final effort to turn election

In the last debate Thursday night before the Nov. 3 election, a much more reserved and presidential Donald Trump set out to label Democratic challenger Joe Biden as a corrupt, do-nothing politician in an appeal to the American people to grant him four more years.

During the debate in Nashville, Tennessee, moderated by NBC News’ Kristen Welker, Trump routinely hit Biden for being “all talk, no action” and pressed him on why he didn’t accomplish reforms while he was the vice president or in the Senate. At one point, he looked at Biden and said, “I ran because of you … because I thought you did a poor job.”

Biden weathered the attacks and shot back characterizing Trump as a president unfit for office and unable to handle the responsibility of leading a nation.

Key exchanges

On the coronavirus: The first question of the night predictably was about the coronavirus pandemic, which Welker described as entering a “dangerous new phase.”

Though usually a weak point for Trump, the president seemed to handle himself ably on the topic, even getting in a good dig on Biden regarding shutdowns, saying, “We can’t lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does.” Biden espoused a grim tone on the topic, warning that America is heading into a “dark winter” and that, contrary to Trump’s suggestion that Americans are “learning to live with” the virus, under Trump’s leadership, they are actually “learning to die with it.”

Foreign entanglements: Welker artfully facilitated discussion on the hot-button issue of the debate — Hunter Biden’s laptop — by lumping the controversy into what she called “foreign entanglements” involving each candidate. Once the conversation was underway, it turned into perhaps the most fiery spat of the debate. Trump pressed Biden on new reports about his family profiting off of his high-profile government position, and Biden shot back at Trump over his tax returns and foreign investments.

Trump NUKES Biden Over Hunter’s Laptop Scandal and Forces Joe to Finally Respond

At one point, Biden made a statement he will almost certainly regret, claiming: “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source in my life.”

Unfortunately, Welker never specifically cornered the former vice president into answering the New York Post’s bombshell reports about his family allegedly profiting off his position in government and kicking back proceeds to him.

Immigration: Trump wiggled out of what could have been a detrimental segment for him on the topic of child separations at the border by noting that the “cages,” or chain-linked holding centers, where illegal immigrant children are kept were built during the Obama administration. Trump repeatedly taunted the former vice president, saying, “Who built the cages, Joe?” while he was castigating Trump for “ripping” children from their families.

Biden then promised to implement a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants and DACA recipients.

Trump Leaves Biden SPEECHLESS When He Asks: “Who Built the Cages, Joe?”

Anything else?

Regardless of political persuasion, everyone will likely agree that this debate was far more rewarding for viewers.

Surprisingly, the addition of the mute button seemed to be an obvious success as each candidate was able to answer initial questions without interruption or provocation.

Biden Debate Intelwars Kristen Welker Moderator Praise trump

NBC’s Kristen Welker wins high praise from the left and right in moderating of final debate

NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker received rave reviews from Democrats, Republicans, and folks in between for her performance in moderating Thursday night’s final debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.

What are the details?

After President Trump warned ahead of the debate that Welker has “always been terrible and unfair,” midway through the debate he tipped his hat to the journalist for how she was conducting the bout.

The Hill reported that “as he accused former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday night of wanting to ban fracking, Trump threw out a compliment to Welker, saying that he respected her handling of the debate.”

“By the way so far I respect very much the way you’re handling this, I have to say,” Trump told the moderator, before returning to his back-and-forth with Biden.

Toward the end of the debate, conservative writer Carmine Sabia tweeted, “There is time left but Kristen Welker has given a master class on how to moderate a debate fairly. Is Chris Wallace watching?”

When the debate was over, pundits, politicians, and journalists of all stripes declared Welker as the person who came out on top in the evening’s performances.

Conservative Wayne Dupree tweeted, “#KristenWelker did one of the best moderator jobs we’ve seen in years. She didn’t give Biden snowball questions and that was huge!”

Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) also sang Welker’s praises, saying the NBC News rising star “did an excellent job moderating tonight.”

Several of Welker’s colleagues at NBC sent shout-outs for her performance, but so did other journalists.

Former Fox News reporter Adam Housley tweeted, “@kwelkernbc handled it fantastically. Maybe a couple more topics could have been explored, but she was fair and kept control.”

The audience appeared happy, too. Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reported from the debate in Tennessee, “‘Home run,’ one person in Nashville debate audience said loudly of moderator @kwelkernbc, and dozens who heard that comment voiced agreement.”

Anthony Scaramucci Debate Intelwars Moderator Steve Scully trump

Moderator for second presidential debate publicly asks anti-Trumper Scaramucci for advice on Trump

C-SPAN host Steve Scully, who has been named as the moderator of the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, raised eyebrows Thursday night when he publicly asked avowed anti-Trumper Anthony Scaramucci about whether he should “respond” to the president.

It is unclear at the time of this writing what Scully was referring to, but his outreach to Scaramucci added to prior allegations of pro-Biden bias against the selected moderator.

What are the details?

At 9:45 p.m. EST, Scully tweeted, “@Scaramucci should I respond to trump.” Scaramucci — who famously served a two-week stint as Trump’s White House press secretary before being fired and becoming a vehement critic of the president — wrote back, “Ignore. He is having a hard enough time. Some more bad stuff about to go down.”

Folks reacting on Twitter widely speculated that Scully accidentally sent the tweet publicly when he likely intended the message to Scaramucci to be private.

Regardless of the reason, the outreach added fuel to the fire that Scully would favor Biden in the debate because he interned for the former senator years ago.

Washington Times reported that Scully — who is set to moderate the Oct. 15 debate — interned for Biden in 1978 “according to a biography published by George Washington University.”

The response from The Hill’s Joe Concha represented the reaction from many critics. He tweeted, “What? Why is the next presidential debate moderator publicly asking one of Trump’s staunchest critics in Anthony Scaramucci if he should respond to the president? In a related story, Scully once interned for Sen. Joe Biden. Optics here are horrible & underscore mistrust is media.”

President Trump brought up Scully to Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday night, saying, “So, now I find out the guy from C-SPAN is a never-Trumper but I don’t mind that! Look at the people I’ve had in the past.”

The second debate is currently up in the air after the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Thursday that it would be virtual following Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis, but the president said he would not participate unless the event took place in person.

Alexandria ocasio-cortez AOC Debate green new deal Intelwars Kamala Harris mike pence

AOC rips Pence on Twitter for calling her ‘AOC’ at debate: ‘It’s Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez to you.’ Then commenters rip her right back.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently was triggered by Vice President Mike Pence referring to her as “AOC” — the New York congresswoman’s popular nickname — during Pence’s debate with Democratic vice presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) on Wednesday night.

“For the record @Mike_Pence, it’s Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez to you,” she tweeted at Pence.

What are the details?

Prior to Ocasio-Cortez’s flare up, Pence noted that Harris was an original co-sponsor of the Green New Deal championed by Ocasio-Cortez when it hit the Senate floor, the New York Post said.

“[The Biden climate plan is] essentially the same plan as you co-sponsored with AOC when [Harris] submitted it in the Senate,” Pence said, according to the paper.

And that apparently got to Ocasio-Cortez, the Post added.

How did folks react?

Given the congresswoman’s post has received over 700,000 likes since it hit Twitter, along with tons of comments, Ocasio-Cortez got her share of kudos for tearing into Pence.

But there were plenty of folks who ripped AOC right back for taking Pence’s reference so personally, including LifeNews, which countered her formal title demand with two words: “former bartender.”

Here are some other reactions:

  • “That’s VICE PRESIDENT Mike Pence, to you,” one observer shot back.
  • “Tell us all how you make a rum and coke?” another commenter asked.
  • “Well you sure told him off, Alexandria. Or Sandy. Whatever your name is,” another user noted.
  • “AOC, it’s really sad seeing a grown woman act like a 3 year old,” another commenter said. “That seems to be your only true talent.”
  • “I don’t really understand this attitude from politicians. There are few, if any, things that entitle you to demand others call you by a particular title, and being voted into office is definitely not one of them,” another user observed. “Your position does not make you better than anyone else.”
  • “Your tweet is more proof of the left’s inherent victim mentality. Make no mistake, she didn’t say this because she wanted respect, she said it as a snide remark,” another commenter noted. “She’s addressed as AOC by media, all over the Internet, her own brand… so nice try, but you’re simply wrong.”
  • “You give women a bad name,” another observer said. “And this is coming from one. We are not snowflakes.”
abraham lincoln Court packing Debate Intelwars Kamala Harris Lie mike pence SCOTUS watch

Kamala Harris gave false ‘history lesson’ when claiming Lincoln delayed SCOTUS nomination so Americans could vote first

As TheBlaze previously reported, Democratic vice presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) twice dodged Vice President Mike Pence’s direct questions during Wednesday night’s debate regarding if she and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would pack the U.S. Supreme Court with additional justices if President Donald Trump loses reelection and Amy Coney Barrett — his latest nominee — is confirmed.

But something else happened during one of Harris’ non-answers: She misrepresented history.

What are the details?

After Pence offered historical examples of presidents nominating justices in election years — and criticized the Democratic prospect of packing the Supreme Court should Barrett secure confirmation and Biden-Harris wins the White House — Harris seemed to have a ready answer.

“I’m so glad we went through a little history lesson; let’s do that a little more,” she told Pence. “In 1864—”

But when Pence interrupted and pressed for an answer, Harris shot back, “Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking. I’m speaking, ‘k?”

Then Harris — displaying a noticeably wide grin — started again:

In 1864, one of the, I think, political heroes certainly of the president, I assume of you also, Mr. Vice President, is Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was up for reelection, and it was 27 days before the election. And a seat became open on the United States Supreme Court. Abraham Lincoln’s party was in charge, not only of the White House, but the Senate. But Honest Abe said, ‘It’s not the right thing to do. The American people deserve to make the decision about who will be the next president of the United States. And then that person can select who will serve for a lifetime on the highest court of our land.’ And so Joe and I are very clear: the American people are voting right now, and it should be their decision about who will serve on this most important body for a lifetime.

Harris, of course, continued to skate and giggle around Pence’s original question when he repeated it.

But it’s also important to note that her supposedly deeper dive into history was false. Lincoln didn’t delay nominating a Supreme Court justice so the American people could vote for a new president first, National Review’s Dan McLaughlin said before offering more details:

Lincoln, of course, said no such thing. He sent no nominee to the Senate in October 1864 because the Senate was out of session until December. He sent a nominee the day after the session began, and Salmon P. Chase was confirmed the same day. And Lincoln wanted to dangle the nomination before Chase and several other potential candidates because he wanted them to campaign for him. Lincoln’s priority was winning the election, which was necessary to win the war — and he filled the vacancy at the first possible instant.

McLaughlin added that “Kamala Harris is simply inventing history.”

The Washington Post admitted Harris’ claim “wasn’t exactly true,” and — citing historian Michael Burlingame in “Lincoln: A Life” — noted that Lincoln said he wouldn’t nominate anyone immediately because he was “waiting to receive expressions of public opinion from the country” regarding the next nominee. While Lincoln didn’t like Chase, nominating him helped Lincoln maintain a broad conservative coalition.

Here’s the relevant portion of the clip:

Debate Election 2020 Intelwars Kamala Harris mike pence VP Debate

VP debate recap: Pence defends Trump’s record, goes on attack. Harris dodges questions on court packing, tries to claim repealing tax cuts won’t raise taxes.

Well, that looked more like a regular debate.

Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) sparred over the the coronavirus, the economy, the Supreme Court, and a number of other hot-button issues in a mostly interruption-less vice presidential debate Wednesday night in Salt Lake City.

Separated by not one, but two, layers of plexiglass, the two candidates fielded questions from debate moderator and USA Today correspondent Susan Page and left their respective parties with much to cheer on.

Key exchanges

On the coronavirus: The first topic of the night, predictably, was the coronavirus, and on that subject, Harris blasted the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic as the “greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country.” After spending most of her time attacking the current administration, she then briefly explained how a Biden-Harris administration would combat the pandemic: tracing, testing, and free vaccines.

Pence defended his and Trump’s handling of the pandemic and before clapping back at Harris, suggesting that the Biden/Harris plan sounds an awful lot like what Trump has been doing all along.

“It looks a little like plagiarism, which Joe Biden knows a little something about,” Pence said.

On vaccines: When asked by Page if she would take a vaccine administered under the Trump administration, Harris said she would take one if Dr. Anthony Fauci or health experts recommended it, but said” if Donald Trump tells us we should take it, I’m not taking it.” Page didn’t bother to follow up asking for clarification.

Pence jumped in to say, “The fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine under the Trump administration is unconscionable … please stop playing politics with people’s lives.”

On tax cuts: Harris vowed that Biden would immediately repeal the Trump tax cuts. She said: “On day one Joe Biden will repeal that tax bill, he’ll get rid of it, and what he’ll do with that money is invest it in the American people.”

Pence shot back saying that Harris essentially was admitting that “on day one, Joe Biden’s gonna raise your taxes” by repealing the Trump tax cuts, which he argued “saved the average American family of four … $2,000 in taxes.”

On the Supreme Court: Pence took the time in this segment to ask Harris directly if she and Biden would pack the Supreme Court in November if they win the election. Harris, just as Biden did in the first presidential debate, sidestepped the question and refused to give a straight answer.

Pence and Harris battle over Supreme Court, court packing | VP Debate

What else?

The candidates were careful not to interrupt each other, but there were still times in which they locked horns and engaged in some back-and-forth.

Pence kept a cool and calm demeanor most of the debate, yet was still forceful at certain times when defending Trump’s record and castigating Biden’s and Harris’ records.

“You’re entitled to your own opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts,” he said twice to Harris.

Harris was more conversational and likely came across less robotic. She routinely referred to Biden simply as “Joe” and often endeavored to connect with viewer’s emotions.

Anything else?

The highlight of the night, however, may prove to be none other than a fly which landed on Pence’s head and stayed there for over two minutes while the candidates talked without ever noticing.

concede Debate Donald Trump Economy Fear Gold GREED Headline News Hillary Clinton Index Intelwars interjecting Joe Biden LIES no winner political theatre propaganda Silver Stock Market


This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends.

I watched the debate and my FIRST CONCLUSION is that no one has truly WON IT decisively.

Going into it, everyone expected Trump to dominate it and to have the UPPER HAND, but ex-Vice President Joe Biden did not get RATTLED or shaken up by Trump’s strategy of meddling with Biden’s AIRTIME.

In our opinion, the tactic of constantly INTERJECTING and commenting, which worked with Hillary, didn’t achieve the SAME OUTCOME this time around. It did not buy Trump sympathy points since the moderator did not fall for the same trap the 2016 hosts did.

We believe that because of the setting and the subject matter, viewers wanted SUBSTANCE, not entertainment. We believe that Biden was able to present his side calmly and that by cutting him short, it seems to us that Trump didn’t let Biden MAKE MISTAKES and sound inaccurate like he did in previous occasions.

Trump’s advisors, if that’s where this thought process originated from, did a BAD JOB here.

To make sure I’m not confusing you, we’re definitely not Biden supporters and we remain pretty far away from politics, but we do know the outcome of these elections mean A WHOLE LOT to you, so we’re publishing what we think is important. OBJECTIVELY, we saw Trump win AS EXPECTED, but not by crushing his adversary like we initially anticipated.

This means that Trump lost an IMPORTANT MILESTONE, which means that markets might continue to wander WITHOUT DIRECTION since it’s not yet known who has the UPPER HAND.

Look how perfectly this is displayed by the FEAR/GREED index:


It’s SMACK-DAB in the middle of the column; a sign of the times.

Here are a few things to consider if you’re A TRUMP SUPPORTER:

  1. People that are of the same age group as Joe Biden OR OLDER might actually empathize with Joe and not appreciate Trump’s bullying him on account of his age alone.
  2. Because everyone came into this debate EXPECTING TRUMP to crush Biden, the fact that Biden was able to CARRY THROUGH was a pleasant surprise to UNDECIDED VOTERS who have heard that Sleepy Joe is senile and have now seen somewhat CONTRADICTING EVIDENCE.
  3. Biden’s approach was to keep the conversation civil, which is not Trump’s style and makes many reject him RIGHT OFF THE BAT. We wonder how many swing voters did not resonate with his manners.


September’s MARKET ROUT has been a catalyst for dollar strength, and that’s AWFUL for silver prices. Since Trump was elected, this has been the dollar’s SECOND-BEST month, so what is the market thinking here?

One thing to keep in mind as a GOLD BULL and a SILVER SPECULATOR is that Trump’s demeanor and his HANDS-ON approach with China have actually strengthened the dollar a lot!

The dollar has been VERY STRONG under his reign and a Biden win will LESSEN TENSIONS, which will lower the need to own so much liquid cash.

This isn’t over yet.

The presidential race is ALIVE AND WELL. Either can still win and, in our opinion, a Biden win is actually MORE INFLATIONARY.

It would be a shame, though, to see Trump concede since before Covid-19, things were looking good.

Conservative host lists five worst Trump vs Biden debate moments

Stu Does America,” host Stu Burguiere finalized his list of five worst moments from the Trump-Biden presidential debate in Cleveland.

Coming in at number five, the Green New Deal. Moderator Chris Wallace asked Biden to state his position on the Green New Deal. Biden’s response surprised Stu, for several reasons that included information on Biden’s website that claimed support for the Green New Deal, and his choice for a running mate, Kamala Harris, who co-sponsored the green plan.

“The Green New Deal will pay for itself as we move forward. We aren’t going to build plants that keep polluting the planet,” Biden began.

“Do you support the Green New Deal,” Wallace asked?

“No. I don’t support the Green New Deal,” Biden replied.

“That is news,” Stu said. Stu cited information pulled from Biden’s website and other sources to illustrated the apparent flip flop Biden had on the Green New Deal.

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

This was one FOR THE AGES; the first COVID-era debate is behind us. Today, I want to REVEAL MY CONCLUSIONS from it, since it was widely-viewed and closely-followed.

For one, Biden’s performance WAS WHATEVER…

His replies, to be honest, were MOSTLY MEANINGLESS clichés, which I expected going into it.

His consultants must have coached him a million times not to GET INTO SPECIFICS – that’s where his cognitive weaknesses are on FULL DISPLAY and he did follow their advice. He mostly kept his answers vague and WITHOUT CONVICTION.


With a recovery FULLY UNDERWAY (as can be seen above), the Democrats know that they must pull a rabbit out of the hat; THE ECONOMY is certainly synonymous with Donald Trump, so each passing day of it returning TO STRIDE is hurting their (the Democrats) chances to win.

Anyone watching the debate saw the STARK DIFFERENCE in personal rhetorical capabilities; obviously, a vote for Biden is simply a DE-FACTO VOTE against Trump at all costs, since he’s fat more up-to-speed on what’s happening — he’s already in office and has a PULSE OF THINGS.

Even most Democrats know that if the position up for grabs was CEO of a company, Trump would be the better man, so one question is how the REMAINING FEW voters, who are currently on the fence, choose on Election Day, based on social issues, immigration, and healthcare. The other question is HOW MANY people, who normally don’t vote, get inspired to do so and FOR WHOM.


I’m not an American, nor do I base my decisions in life on who occupies the White House, but I’m sharing this summary of the debate since it matters to you.

While many things in your life won’t be GREATLY IMPACTED by either president, some areas will CHANGE if Biden takes over.


Tensions with China and Europe will probably ease if Biden wins, which will make the DOLLAR LESS IMPORTANT. Gold has done well under Trump, but silver hasn’t, because of the strong dollar; that will change if Sleepy Joe is in office.

In our view, the moderator of the debate (Mr. Wallace), knowing the ATTENTION SPAN of the average voter is 15 minutes, wanted to SERVE UP Biden with his strong topics first, like Trump’s entanglement with the IRS or Obamacare, but Biden didn’t SINK TRUMP’S SHIP.

If there’s a SECOND DEBATE, Trump will exploit Biden’s weaknesses FAR BETTER.

The average Trump voter will never go the other way, but in our opinion, many Democrats could look at Trump and be surprised by his preparedness level to answer questions.

All in all, Trump is again coming FROM BEHIND, at this point.


As you know, in the end, America is a WEALTH MACHINE that favors the rich, under either Republican or Democrat leadership, so the fact remains that the NET WORTH GAPS will continue to widen, unless you do SOMETHING ABOUT IT, by becoming rich and showing others it’s possible; an ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.

Financial education is STEP #1 and the more you immerse yourself in how to fix your personal problems, the less you’ll depend on government.

Financial intelligence is the BEST CURE for you!

Keep growing.

Cake Chris Wallace Debate Fox News Intelwars Joe Biden trump

Chris Wallace says President Trump ruined his plans for a ‘substantive’ debate

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace responded to criticism Thursday over his moderating of the chaotic first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden earlier in the week, saying that Trump ruined his plans for a “substantive” discussion.

What are the details?

Speaking on Fox News’ “Bill Hemmer Reports,” Wallace told the host he initially thought the night started off well after Trump and Biden each answered their first questions. But from that point, things went off the rails.

“It became clearer and clearer over time that this was something different and that the president was determined to try to butt in, and throw Joe Biden off,” Wallace said, before citing a Fox analysis “that indicates the president interrupted either Biden’s answers or my questions a total of 145 times.”

The veteran journalist said the president “bears the primary responsibility for what happened on Tuesday,” adding that Trump interrupted Biden more than twice as many times as Biden interrupted him.

Wallace went on to explain how he tried to rein things in during the debate, before explaining, “Literally, hundreds of man hours and woman hours between me and my researcher went in to try to prepare a substantive debate and on so many issues — Biden’s tax and spending plans, Trump’s climate and environmental policies.”

“You know, I was really hoping for the debate that I think America wanted to see,” he continued, “which was a serious exchange of views.”

Wallace then made an analogy in describing how he felt while moderating, telling Hemmer, “I felt like I had gotten together all of the ingredients, I had baked this beautiful, delicious cake, and then, frankly, the president put his foot in it.”

Chris Wallace responds to criticism of his debate moderation

Wallace has taken heat for not doing more as moderator to control the 90-minute back-and-forth between Trump and Biden, which was full of interruptions and insults from both sides. But Fox News Media executives defended the “Fox News Sunday” host’s performance, saying in an internal memo after the debate, “No moderator could have managed a debate of that magnitude better than Chris.”

Wallace told The New York Times the day after the event, “Generally speaking, I did as well as I could, so I don’t have any second thoughts there.”

He added, “I’m just disappointed with the results. For me, but much more importantly, I’m disappointed for the country, because it could have been a much more useful evening than it turned out to be.”

Biden’s Boys: Chad Prather’s analysis of ‘DICEY’ moment from Trump-Biden presidential debate

As the dust settled on the Trump-Biden presidential debate in Cleveland, Chad reflected on a “dicey” moment when the discussion shifted to Joe Biden’s sons.

During the debate, Biden attached his late son Beau’s memory to an allegation that Trump called fallen soldiers “losers” and “suckers” in 2018. Trump hit back, pointing out that he did not know Beau, but he was familiar with Hunter, Biden’s youngest son.

Trump shifted the conversation toward Hunter’s positive drug test that led to his Navy’s administrative discharge and his involvement with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian-based energy company under Senate investigation for “suspicious activity.”

Chad explained that by associating comments to his late son Beau, Biden opened the door for Trump to attack his youngest son, Hunter, for past and current misconduct.

Fox News Media praises Chris Wallace’s ‘professionalism, skill and fortitude’ in moderating debate

Fox News Media executives sent out an internal memo expressing their gratitude and congratulations to veteran anchor Chris Wallace on his performance moderating the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, praising the journalist’s “professionalism, skill and fortitude.”

What are the details?

The Hill’s Joe Concha posted a joint memo issued by Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace, which read, in part:

Dear Colleagues,

We’d like to take a moment to thank and congratulate Chris Wallace for moderating last night’s extraordinary debate. We are extremely proud of his professionalism, skill and fortitude in a unique situation while doing everything possible to hold both candidates accountable. NO moderator could have managed a debate of that magnitude better than Chris.

The letter went on to praise the “equally impressive” coverage of the debate by Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Shannon Bream and others who contributed to the night’s success for the network.

“More Americans watched FOX News Channel last night than any other network on broadcast or cable with 17.8 million viewers tuning — shattering records as the highest rated presidential commission debate in cable news history,” the executives noted.

The debate itself was
roundly panned as chaotic, with both candidates attacking and interrupting each other while Wallace did his best to reign it in. As TheBlaze‘s Phil Shiver described, the event “was every bit as entertaining — and feisty — as advertised.”

The Washington Examiner reported that several of Wallace’s Fox News colleagues joined in on criticizing the job he did as moderator, including Ingraham and “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade. Contributors Andy McCarthy and Dan Bongino also hit out at Wallace.

What did Wallace say?

Wallace told
The New York Times on Thursday, “I’m just sad the way last night turned out. I never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did.”

“I’ve been involved in a certain amount of soul-searching,” the anchor added, upon reflection. “Generally speaking, I did as well as I could, so I don’t have any second thoughts there. I’m just disappointed with the results. For me, but much more importantly, I’m disappointed for the country, because it could have been a much more useful evening than it turned out to be.”

Campaign 2020 Debate Intelwars Joe Biden

Democrats suggest rule changes to hurt Trump at next debates; media float Joe Biden skipping debates

After Tuesday’s presidential debate, which will be remembered as a night of chaos, Democrats are seeking potential rule changes, while the media floated the possibility of Joe Biden skipping the next two debates.

What are the details?

Despite Biden’s campaign pledging the former vice president would participate in each of the three scheduled debates, Democrats are blaming Trump for Tuesday’s chaos — and are seeking potential rule changes to future debates, Politico reported.

Simon Rosenberg, a former senior adviser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told Politico the Commission on Presidential Debates needs to rein in the president prior to the next debates.

“Of course, Biden and Harris should keep debating. But they should work to make sure Trump can’t repeat his performance tonight,” Rosenberg said. “Moderators should have the ability to cut off his mic and split screens should be limited. Let them talk to the American people without the other facial expressions and interruptions registering.”

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), a top Biden surrogate, similarly blamed Trump for the debate chaos.

“It was very hard to follow what was being said, and President Trump showed not just disrespect to the moderator, but to the American people who tuned in trying to figure out what his plans are,” Coons told Politico. “The point of the debate is for the American people to make a decision, informed by hearing from the two candidates on what’s your record, what are your values? Joe Biden came prepared to respect the American people. Donald Trump did not.”

What did the media say?

In post-debate coverage on CNN, network anchor Jake Tapper asked Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, “Do you think Joe Biden should participate in a second or third debate?”

MSNBC host Brian Williams similarly asked on MSNBC, “Should the next two debates go on as scheduled?”

CNN host Wolf Blitzer commented that he “wouldn’t be surprised if this is the last presidential debate.”

When are the next debates?

The second presidential debate is scheduled to take place on Thursday, Oct. 15; it will be moderated by C-SPAN’s Steve Scully. The final presidential debate is slated for Thursday, Oct. 22, and it will be moderated by MSNBC’s Kristen Welker.

Biden’s campaign said that Biden will, in fact, participate in both debates, according to Politico.

However, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfield, said both campaigns were discussing potential format changes with the debate commission.

There is also a vice presidential debate scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 7, which will be moderated by USA Today’s Susan Page.

Burisma Campaign 2020 CORRUPTION Debate Donald Trump Hunter biden Intelwars Joe Biden Moscow

Biden says corruption claims against Hunter Biden are ‘totally discredited.’ But that’s not true.

Joe Biden claimed during Tuesday’s presidential debate that scrutiny surrounding his son’s financial dealings with Russian interests has been “totally discredited.”

But that’s not exactly true.

What did Biden say?

About halfway through the chaotic debate, President Donald Trump homed in on Hunter Biden and scrutiny surrounding his work in Ukraine and Russia during the Obama administration, for which he was paid handsomely. Biden’s critics have suggested the financial payments are evidence of corruption and a conflict of interest while Biden was vice president.

Trump asked, “While we’re at it, just out of curiosity, the mayor of Moscow’s wife gave your son $3.5 millions of dollars. What did he do to deserve it?”

“None of that is true; it’s been totally discredited,” Biden responded.

When Trump attempted to rebut, debate moderator Chris Wallace, an anchor at Fox News, continually interrupted Trump and gave Biden the floor.

What are the facts?

Last week, Senate Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee and the Finance Committee released a joint report leveling new, serious allegations against Hunter Biden.

The report detailed more than a dozen “key findings” that connect Hunter Biden’s time on the board of Burisma in Ukraine to possible corruption, aiding Moscow’s disinformation efforts, and even hindering U.S. foreign policy.

One of those “key findings” was that “Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.”

As TheBlaze reported:

Baturina is a Russian businesswoman and the country’s only frail billionaire. Her riches came when her husband, the late Mayor of Moscow Yuri Luzhkov, orchestrated a number of municipal contracts with her company. Luzhkov was fired in 2010 by then-President Medvedev over corruption allegations, the report says.

Baturina wired $3.5 million to Hunter Biden’s investment firm for a “consulting agreement,” the committee states.

The investment firm in question, Rosemont Seneca Thornton, was “co-founded by Hunter Biden that was incorporated on May 28, 2013 in Wilmington, Del.,” the Senate report explained. The firm is apparently an offshoot of another firm, Rosemont Seneca, which was co-founded by Hunter Biden and Christopher Heinz, stepson of John Kerry, who at the time of the transaction of Baturina was serving as secretary of state.

The Senate report cited “confidential document 6” as proof of the financial transaction.

Hunter Biden’s lawyer, George Mesires, told PolitiFact that the Senate report is not true. “Hunter Biden had no interest in and was not a co-founder of Rosemont Seneca Thornton, so the claim that he was paid $3.5 million is false,” he said.

However, PolitiFact noted that Mesires refused to show documents to corroborate his claim that Biden was not associated with Rosemont Seneca Thorton.

Senate Republicans provided no definitive proof to substantiate their claims, though many of the supporting documents are cited in the report as “confidential.”

Debate Fraud Intelwars Joe Biden Mail-in ballots trump

Here’s what President Trump was referring to when he said fraud has been ‘established’ with mail-in voting

President Donald Trump said during Tuesday night’s first presidential debate that fraud has already been “established” as a risk with mail-in voting, citing a recent race between two Democrats.

What are the details?

As the debate began to wrap up, Trump pushed back on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s claim that “no one has established at all that there is fraud related to mail-in ballots. That somehow it’s a fraudulent process.”

“It’s already been established,” the president replied. “Take a look at Carolyn Maloney’s race,” Trump suggested to moderator Chris Wallace. “Look at Carolyn Maloney. They have no idea what happened.”

President Trump was not able to elaborate as Wallace returned the floor to Biden, who said that the president “has no idea what he’s talking about.”

What President Trump was referring to was a June primary race between incumbent Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) and her challenger, fellow Democrat Suraj Patel.

Patel did not concede for more than two months, because, according to India West, the “results were delayed and contested due to problems counting absentee ballots.” Neither of the candidates alleged fraudulent or duplicate voting, but they did allege that some ballots were improperly not counted.

Fox News reported last month that the Maloney-Patel race and another New York race “mired by thousands of missing and uncounted mail-in ballots” have “become Exhibit A in President Trump’s campaign against universal mail-in balloting, which he and several experts say poses a major fraud risk.”

The outlet explained:

Maloney held onto a mere 658-vote lead over Patel after in-person voting concluded, with 65,000 mail-in votes uncounted. The final, certified margin of victory was 3,700 votes. A total of 13,000 mail-in votes were tossed out for various reasons, including missing signatures or incorrect postmarks.

President Trump called for a do-over in the Maloney race, referring to it as a “total disaster.”

Fox News also reported that “fraud has not been alleged in the race,” but acknowledged that “a Fox News analysis found a slew of issues in other states in recent days, including intentional ballot fraud.”

In reaction to Trump bringing up the Maloney race as an example, Patel tweeted Tuesday night, “Let’s be clear, the issue in my race was disenfranchisement, not voter fraud. More than 1 in 5 ballots were discarded, many multiples of the final margin. We called our election a canary in the coal mine for November, we were right. Trump lied about what happened here.”

Maloney herself did not address the fraud allegations when she tweeted, “Donald: I won my election. You’re going to lose yours.”

2020 Election Biden Debate Intelwars trump Trump biden debate

Fiery first debate featured virtually endless insults and bickering between testy Trump, Biden

The first presidential debate of 2020 is in the books, and suffice it to say, it was every bit as entertaining — and feisty — as advertised.

For more than ninety minutes on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden fielded questions, but mostly bickered incessantly, in front of a socially distanced crowd in Cleveland, Ohio, while presumably millions watched on TV and online.

Key takeaways

More than any single exchange or issue discussed, the candidates’ general ire toward each other and consistent insult-slinging will likely be regarded as the biggest takeaway from the debate.

The candidates rarely made it two minutes without sidetracking the discussion by interrupting each other with derogatory remarks and personal affronts.

At one point early on, Biden actually jabbed at Trump, saying, “Will you shut up, man?” and at another point referred to Trump as a “clown.”

Trump mocked Biden for wrongly claiming he started his academic career at Delaware State University — the school has since said he never attended — and accused Biden of forgetting. “Don’t ever use the word smart with me … because you know what, there’s nothing smart about you, Joe,” Trump said.

Biden Tells Trump to “Shut Up” But Isn’t Ready for Trump to BRING THE FIRE!

Key exchanges

When it came to discussing actual issues, the candidates worked hard to differentiate themselves from each other. Here were some of the key exchanges from the night.

On recent controversies: Moderator Chris Wallace made sure to bring up several hot-button issues that arose in recent days and weeks, including the New York Times’ publication of Trump’s alleged tax records and Biden’s refusal to indicate whether he would pack the Supreme Court or not if he were elected president.

Trump denied the NYT report, asserting that he has paid millions in income taxes. Biden continued to deflect answering whether he would pack the court.

On the Supreme Court: Trump was unapologetic about his move to nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the nation’s high court, saying that “we won the election, and elections have consequences.” Biden agreed with Trump that elections have consequences, but submitted that the 2020 election, and not 2016, should be the one that matters in this case.

On the coronavirus: Biden perceived this area as a weak spot for the president and sought to drive home the notion that Trump was solely responsible for the more than 200,000 Americans who have reportedly died as a result of the virus.

“You should get out of the bunker and out of the sand trap … and fund what needs to be done to save lives,” Biden told Trump.

Trump defended his actions and hit back at his challenger by suggesting Biden would have kept the country open and vulnerable to the virus for months longer than he did. He also warned that under Biden’s leadership, the country would undergo a protracted nationwide shutdown.

Trump Embarrasses Biden During Debate for Using the Word “Smart” and EXPOSES His Past

On law and order: Trump repeatedly taunted Biden by saying he wouldn’t declare support for law and order and accusing him of being beholden to the radical left: “They’ve got you wrapped around their finger, Joe.”

“We believe in law and order; you don’t,” Trump said.

On race: Biden labeled Trump as “a racist,” while Trump lambasted the senator for the 1994 crime bill he helped pass. Trump said Biden has treated black people “about as bad as anybody in this country.”

“You called them super-predators, and you’ve called them worse than that,” he added.

Anything else?

Unsurprisingly, the topic of Russian collusion and global conflicts of interest played center stage at the debate.

Trump repeatedly instigated Biden with the allegation that his son, Hunter Biden, received a $3.5 million wire transfer from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.

Biden hit back several times by alleging that Trump is Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “puppy.”

In the end, there appeared to be no immediately clear winner, though polling may eventually show differently.

However, those who simply wanted an entertaining bare-knuckled brawl certainly got their wish.

Campaign 2020 Debate Donald Trump Election 2020 Intelwars Joe Biden presidential debate

Report: Biden wants breaks every 30 minutes during debate. Trump wants Biden’s ears checked for radio transmitters.

The Trump and Biden campaigns both reportedly made additional requests ahead of the first official presidential debate of the 2020 campaign season.

President Donald Trump’s campaign has requested that the campaign for former Vice President Joe Biden allow a third party to inspect the ears of each candidate for electronic devices or radio transmitters. The Biden campaign has not, so far, agreed to this request, Fox News, whose own Chris Wallace is moderating the debate, reported.

Ebony Bowden, a reporter for the New York Post, says that several days ago, the Biden campaign agreed to an ear inspection for each candidate but is now denying the request.

According to Fox News, the Biden campaign over the last few weeks has requested that two breaks be included in the debate schedule, one every 30 minutes, to break up the 90-minute commercial-free program. The Trump campaign reportedly denied this request from the Biden team.

“Our guy doesn’t need breaks. He gives 90-minute speeches all the time,” a source from the Trump campaign reportedly told Fox News.

The Biden campaign responded to the report, denying that Biden asked for breaks.

In days leading up to tonight’s debate, Trump has also called for each candidate to undergo a drug test, suggesting that his opponent Biden took performance-enhancing drugs prior to debates during the Democratic primary.

“Nobody thought [Biden] was going to win,” Trump said in an interview, referring to Biden’s debate with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). “Because his debate performances were so bad. Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie. We’re going to call for a drug test, by the way, because his best performance was against Bernie. It wasn’t that he was Winston Churchill, because he wasn’t, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test because there’s no way — you can’t do that.”

The Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit and nonpartisan group that sponsors presidential debates, did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News on the reported requests from the Trump and Biden campaigns.

The first 2020 presidential debate will begin at 9:00 p.m. ET and will be held at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland. The debate topics, which were published last week, will cover the following issues:

  • The Trump and Biden Records
  • The Supreme Court
  • COVID-19
  • The Economy
  • Race and Violence in our Cities
  • The Integrity of the Election
These topics will be discussed in six 15-minute segments for 90 total minutes.

Biden Debate Drug Testing Intelwars Prizefight trump

‘It is a prizefight’: Trump calls for drug testing on Biden and himself ahead of debates

President Donald Trump revealed his campaign team is requesting that drug tests be administered to himself and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden before their upcoming debates, citing suspicions that his opponent could be taking substances to enhance his mental acuity.

What are the details?

During a sit-down with The Washington Examiner, the president suggested Biden delivered a noticeably improved performance in his final Democratic primary debate against Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) after purportedly weak showings in the 10 previous debates.

“Nobody thought [Biden] was going to win,” Trump told chief political correspondent Byron York. “Because his debate performances were so bad. Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie. We’re going to call for a drug test, by the way, because his best performance was against Bernie. It wasn’t that he was Winston Churchill because he wasn’t, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test because there’s no way — you can’t do that.”

York asked, “Is this like a prizefight, where beforehand you have a test?”

“Well, it is a prizefight,” the president replied. “It’s no different than gladiators, except we have to use our brain and our mouth. And our body to stand. I want all standing; they want to sit down.”

Trump urged later in the interview, “Go back and watch his performances in some of those debates. He didn’t know where he was. And all of a sudden, he was not good, he was normal, and I don’t understand how. I don’t know if there is or not, but somebody said to me, ‘He must be on drugs.’ I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I’m asking for a drug test. Both candidates. Me, too. I take an aspirin a day.”

The president made the same suggestion as a candidate against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016,

Prior to his final debate with Clinton, Trump said:

Maybe, we’re like athletes, right? Look, I beat seventeen governors, senators, all these people… Hillary beat Bernie, although it looked like Bernie got a little bit of a bad deal based on Wikileaks, right? But we’re like athletes, right? But athletes… they make them take a drug test. I think that we should take a drug test prior to the debate. I think we should… why don’t we do that? We should take a drug test prior to… because, I don’t know what’s going on with her, but at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning, and at the end it was like, whoa, take me down. She could barely reach her car. So I think we should take a drug test. Anyway, I’m willing to do it.

The first of three debates between Trump and Biden is scheduled for Sept. 29 at Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio.
