ELECTION 2020: THERE MIGHT NOT BE ANOTHER DEBATE!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global. 

If the Democrats wish to CANCEL DEBATES in this presidential race, they now have the PERFECT PRETENSE.

President Trump had a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to win this debate since he’s a better oral negotiator and persuader. But the way we see it, he TOTALLY BLEW IT by disregarding the rules of the game, constantly jumping into Biden’s time slots and disrespecting the format itself.

Maybe that was his strategy going into it, but whether it was or not, it was A MISTAKE, in hindsight.

This is the FINAL STRETCH of this weird election year and we think that Trump’s half-win will only UP THE ANTE and cause his campaign to be MORE AGGRESSIVE.

The debate showed something that I’ve been talking about for months; both parties have lost the ELEGANCE of POLITICS, the showmanship of presidents and it does not PROJECT WELL to other countries.

It shows internal weakness and might create diplomatic POWER STRUGGLES.

America is LOSING PRESTIGE, which is going to BITE IT in the rear when it comes to retaining its supremacy role.

No one wants an UNSTABLE SUPERPOWER.

This, FOR ONE, is a reason that I own plenty of real, physical precious metals; both gold and silver.

In my opinion, the most important thing here is that Trump knows he didn’t WIN THIS debate. Therefore, he’s looking for ways to deliver a KNOCKOUT BLOW, so get ready for some skeletons!

This debate, with all the coverage it’s getting, has made it acceptable to TAKE the GLOVES OFF!

We’re certainly seeing that innovative entrepreneurs, who are building and changing the world, DON’T HAVE TIME to get familiar with the political cycle. That, TRUTHFULLY, is my message to you today.

Leave this race alone for the day; lighten the load. Go and show your love and devotion to the people who deserve it. WIN THEM OVER as if you just met them; court them — shower them with love and attention.

We sometimes forget and take for granted the graces and blessings in our lives; all we have can be increased, mostly by being grateful for what we already have attained.

We can’t keep cursing the reality; it’s the only one WE’VE GOT. We didn’t create the rules of the world, so we must learn to make them work OUR WAY. We change to meet them since they’ll never change for us.

I’ve yet to see a time in my life, where being kinder, more patient, more honest, more courteous, and polite and more tolerant HAS BACKFIRED.

Win against this apparent chaos, by standing firm on your values.

Let’s have a great time being our BEST SELVES!

2020 presidential debates 2020 presidential election Courtpacking Debates Intelwars Joe Biden President Donald Trump Rgb death

President Trump rips Joe Biden for refusing to answer court-packing question

President Donald Trump attacked Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden during Tuesday night’s debate after Biden refused to answer whether he would add justices to the Supreme Court following Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death.

Ginsburg
died earlier in September at the age of 87 following a long bout with cancer.

What are the details?

In the first of the presidential debates, Biden demanded Trump “shut up, man,” and refused to say whether he would pack the court if the president’s conservative pick —
Amy Coney Barrett — is confirmed to replace the late Justice Ginsburg.

“Whatever position I take on that, that’ll become the issue,” Biden said. “The issue is the American people should speak. You should go out and vote. You’re in voting, now vote, and let your senators know how strongly you feel. But vote now.”

Trump interrupted, “Are you going to pack the court? Are you going to pack the court?”

Trump then turned to moderator Chris Wallace and, referring to Biden, said, “He doesn’t want to answer.”

Biden insisted, “I’m not going to answer the question, because the question is, the question is, the question is,” trailing off while Trump interrupted him to answer the question once more.

“Will you shut up, man?” Biden fired back.

Trump, undaunted, continued, “Who’s on your list, Joe? Who is on your list? He’s going to pack the court.”

Biden, clearly frustrated, snapped, “This is so unpresidential. … Keep yapping, man!”

Trump then came in for the kill, and said, “The people understand, Joe. In 47 years, you’ve done nothing. They understand.”

Chris Wallace Debates Donald Trump Election 2020 Intelwars Joe Biden presidential debates

Debate commission reveals the topics for the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden

The topics for the first presidential debate between Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden were posted Tuesday. They were selected by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, who will moderate the debate next week.

The Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit and nonpartisan group that sponsors presidential debates, posted the selected topics to be discussed at the debate, which will be held Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland. They are as follows:

  • The Trump and Biden Records
  • The Supreme Court
  • Covid-19
  • The Economy
  • Race and Violence in our Cities
  • The Integrity of the Election
Each of these topics will be discussed in six 15-minute segments, “to encourage deep discussion of the leading issues facing the country.” There is no particular order of discussion, and the debate may begin with any of these topics.

The debate will begin at 9:00 p.m. ET and continue for 90 minutes without commercial breaks.

The selected topics reflect recent polling on what Americans view as the the top issues facing the country. A Gallup poll conducted in July found 30% of Americans consider COVID-19 to be the most important problem in the country. The next-most important issue was the government/poor leadership, according to 23% of those polled, and 16% said race relations were most important.

Both Trump and Biden face pressure to perform well. Early and absentee voting in many states begins well before Nov. 3, making the first debate one of the last opportunities the candidates will have to make the argument for their candidacies on prime-time TV before some voters make up their minds.

Ahead of next Tuesday night’s showdown, the Trump campaign is building up expectations for Biden’s performance. In an interview on Fox News Monday, President Trump predicted Biden is “going to do great” before attacking the Democratic nominee’s record. “I’ve done more in 47 months than he’s done in 47 years, and that’s absolutely true,” Trump said.

“I think he’s a professional,” Trump said of Biden. “I don’t know if he’s all there, but I think he’s a professional.”

The Biden debate team is preparing Biden to aggressively fact-check Trump’s record on the debate stage.

“He’s going to lie and lie some more and spin everything and blame it on Biden and Obama,” a Biden aide reportedly told the Hill. “The VP needs to go on offense and immediately say, ‘This is on you. The state of the economy, high unemployment, kids out of school, a pandemic that has gone unchecked. All of it is on you.”

“The only way he ‘wins’ is if he stays on offense,” another Biden ally reportedly said. “The second it goes the other way, things could go sideways.”

August average voter Corporations crash Debates division Donald Trump election Emergency Preparedness experts exploded finances Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden personal finances police brutality Presidential Run quarantine period rapidly approaching social unrest Stock Market TAXES Theft United States Unknown Vaccine valuations Winner worst month

NASDAQ NOSEDIVES: Can You Handle THE HEAT?

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global.

We warned all throughout the MONTH of AUGUST that markets just don’t accept the REALITY of VALUATIONS anymore and one week afterward, the S&P 500 and NASDAQ peaked and have since entered a correction (NASDAQ for now).

Historically, as we explained, September is the market’s WORST MONTH, but this is getting even more SCREWED UP since Europe is considering a second quarantine period while elections in the U.S., which are the BIGGEST UNKNOWN, are rapidly approaching.

Listen closely: Americans are so programmed by propaganda ON BOTH ENDS of the spectrum that the questions asked to everyday citizens reflect the SERIOUS NUMBNESS of the average voter:

As you can see, the RACE IS TIGHT and the stakes are high!

Yesterday, I watched the amazing documentary “The Social Dilemma,” which proves beyond any shadow of a doubt what the business model incentives of social media giants are, and it will be them that DECIDE THE OUTCOME of this presidential run come November.

Between now and then, here’s what could HELP TRUMP, and below that is what could help BIDEN:

  1. Vaccine news – the cure will obviously be positive for Donald Trump, who will RIDE THE COATTAILS, taking credit for the record-fast approval process.
  2. Quarantines and school closures – I have no doubt that Democratic states are going to MAKE LIFE a living hell for residents because they must show Trump’s inadequacy with containing the pandemic.
  3. Debates – obviously, the more we allow these two TO CONFRONT each other, the more Trump has a chance to shine.
  4. Social unrest – if chaos returns, police defunding claims will bring voters to Trump, who is against it. Police brutality, on the other hand, indirectly helps Biden.

For now, markets are still IN SHOCK that Trump’s approval ratings aren’t what they were pre-COVID-19. In January, no one predicted a close race, so I believe that if Biden’s chances are real, it could be AN INITIAL re-rating of equities downwards due to the high probability of higher corporate taxes.

So, when looking at this -12% correction in the NASDAQ, don’t assume it has anything to do with the presidency because it doesn’t.

Prices of equities are TOO HIGH and it’s dawning on institutional investors that they can invest in the recovery by going LONG the beaten-down industries, thus leaving the “bubble territory” to the retail public to MESS WITH.

Now, after the dynamite has exploded, we believe institutions will use stink bids and get back into tech.

We sure are exploring the matter using THIS new watch list.

After already being out of the woods, the SECOND-WAVE mentality that is taking over is depressing and I expect many controversies in the COMING MONTHS.

Lastly, we’re working on a BIG ALERT that you don’t want to miss, so stay focused on what’s coming.

2020 Election Biden Debates election Intelwars President Donald Trump trump Vice President Joe Biden Video

President Trump says he is only ‘sort of’ preparing for the debate with ‘mentally lost’ Joe Biden

Ahead of the first official presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sept. 29, President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday he is not intensely preparing for the debate, saying he is “sort of” preparing to face Democratic nominee Joe Biden, whom Trump called “mentally lost.”

In an interview on Fox News, the president was asked about his preparation strategy for the upcoming debate, which will be moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace. Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt asked Trump if he has memorized Biden’s voting record in the U.S. Senate or held mock debates with members of his staff.

“I sort of prepare every day, by just doing what I’m doing,” the president said, noting his travel across the country for the campaign.

“I’ve been all over the place, and I watch [Biden] sitting home, and I say, maybe I’m doing it wrong.”

Asked what the greatest challenge would be heading into the debate, Trump said he’s not sure how Biden will perform.

“I don’t know which Biden is going to show up, because I watched him during the debates, when they had 20 people on the stage … and I watched him and he was a disaster,” Trump said, referring to Biden’s debate performance in the Democratic primary. “You don’t get worse. He was grossly incompetent.”

“Then I watched him against Bernie, and he was OK, he wasn’t Winston Churchill, I can tell you that, but he was OK, he was fine,” Trump said.

According to a recent report from NBC News, the president has eschewed traditional debate preparations, declining to hold mock debates or practice sessions with aides and confidently asserting that his natural ability to debate doesn’t require practice.

“It’s not the traditional, ‘we need Chris Christie to fill in and play Hillary Clinton’ like we did four years ago,” a source reportedly familiar with the president’s strategy told NBC News. Instead of rehearsing scripted one-liners, President Trump reportedly plans to use a few talking points but doesn’t want to be told what to say.

“I think if you ask the president, he would say that he is preparing for debates by running the country, as president,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told NBC News. “I think the way that he sets himself apart from Joe Biden is to talk about his record.”

For his part, Biden has publicly expressed an eagerness to face Trump, telling ABC News’ David Muir in late August, “I can hardly wait.” Biden has also said he plans to be a “fact checker” against Trump and told donors at a fundraiser, “I hope I don’t take the bait” on the debate stage.

“I hope I don’t get baited into a brawl with this guy, because that’s the only place he’s comfortable,” Biden said.

Expect Trump to instigate exactly the kind of brawl Biden wants to avoid, particularly over Biden’s mental acuity. Recently, the president has, without evidence, accused Biden of taking performance-enhancing drugs during the Democratic primary debates. Trump has also called for each candidate to take drug tests before debating.

Trump repeated this claim on Fox, suggesting Biden did “that kind of stuff” before his debate with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“What did he do? What happened to him all of a sudden? Because he was OK, and Bernie was OK, it was an extraordinarily boring debate, but he got through it,” Trump said. “And I said, what’s the difference between now and some of those classic moments in the other debates, and something was strange in my opinion.”

“I won’t say what, but a lot of people think something happens, and you can’t do that kind of stuff. You just can’t do that kind of stuff,” he added. Trump said he would take a drug test ahead of the debate before criticizing Biden’s performance and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

“I’ve seen him in the debate with the other people, including Kamala, and nobody treated him worse than Kamala, he picked Kamala and nobody treated him worse, called him a racist … and Kamala has her own problems, I mean, she went from 15 down to nothing, she dropped out before they got to Iowa. I think she’s not a good choice, compared to Mike Pence, who’s been a great vice president,” he said.

“Joe is lost, Joe is lost. We can’t have a president that’s mentally lost,” Trump said.

The Biden campaign has denied the accusations that the former vice president used performance-enhancing drugs during any of the Democratic primary debates.

2020 Election 2020 presidential election Debates Intelwars Joe Rogan presidential debates

Joe Rogan offers to moderate a presidential debate. Here’s how he’d do it and what President Trump thinks.

Stand-up comic and popular podcast host Joe Rogan recently offered to moderate a presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, and on Monday morning the president of the United States said he wants it to happen.

During a discussion on the upcoming presidential debates with retired UFC fighter Tim Kennedy on Friday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Kennedy asked if Rogan would be interested in moderating a debate.

“I would want that,” Rogan said before explaining how he would do it. “First of all, I’d want no one else in the room, just the three of us. … And you would have to stream it live so no one can edit it, and I would want them in there for hours.”

“And ideas?” Kennedy asked. “We get to hear what they actually believe in? What they’re gonna do? Who they’re gonna appoint? What judges are gonna be coming in, what policies from gun control to all of it?”

“Yes,” Rogan replied. “We should have that. This is 2020. I mean, we have the ability to have that. We’re not talking about 1979; we’re talking about 2020. If they wanted to do that, they both wanted to come here in Austin, sit down, and have a debate, I would 100% do it,” Rogan continued.

“It would be the best way to find out, but I don’t think that Biden can handle that,” Rogan added.

After the podcast was published Friday, Kennedy posted about the discussion on Twitter, asking if America would like to see a four-hour debate between Trump and Biden, “just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward.”

On Monday, President Trump enthusiastically agreed.

There are three scheduled presidential debates between President Donald Trump and Democrat challenger Joe Biden, sponsored by the nonpartisan
Commission on Presidential Debates. On Sept. 2, the CPD announced the dates, locations, and moderators for the three debates and the vice presidential debate. The first debate will be hosted by Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sept. 29 at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. The official debate schedule is as follows:

First presidential debate:
? Moderator: Chris Wallace, anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” Fox News Channel

? Date & Location: Tuesday, Sept. 29, Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio

Vice presidential debate:
? Moderator: Susan Page, Washington bureau chief, USA Today

? Date & Location: Wednesday, Oct. 7, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah

Second presidential debate (town meeting):
? Moderator: Steve Scully, senior executive producer & political editor, C-SPAN Networks

? Date & Location: Thursday, Oct. 15, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Miami, Florida

Third presidential debate:
? Moderator: Kristen Welker, co-anchor “Weekend Today” and White House correspondent, NBC News

? Date & Location: Thursday, Oct, 22, Belmont University, Nashville, Tennessee

The Trump campaign has said it wants “more debates” with Biden. On Aug. 3, Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien
told “Fox & Friends” he’d also like to see the debates start earlier.

“We want more debates. We want debates starting sooner,” Stepien said. “First debate is scheduled for Sept. 29, by that time 16 states already will have voted, by Sept. 29. That’s a concern to me. I want to see President Trump on the debate stage against Joe Biden.”

As for the Democrats, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has gone on record saying she does not believe Biden should debate Trump at all. “I don’t think that there should be any debates,” Pelosi
told reporters at a press conference in August. “I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that has any association with truth evidence, data, and facts. I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States.”
