“Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.” —Richard Salant, former President of CBS News
“…the J.P. Morgan [banking] interests…. and their subsidiary organizations got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the US…. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. …an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information….” —Congressman Oscar Callaway
Who Decides the Debate Moderators?
Have any of my readers ever seen a true Constitutional conservative as a debate moderator? I haven’t…not ever. There is no “fair and balanced” in the debate schedules, the debate moderators, or the debate questions. Remember the Faux News primary debates? Even those so-called conservative moderators were in full blown hatred toward the only candidate who represents the people, and who wants to make America great again.
The Commission on Presidential Debates was established in 1987, allegedly to ensure that the debates provide the best possible information to viewers and listeners. Here is the commission leadership with the likes of Jimmy Carter, Olympia Snowe, and Jim Lehrer.
Really? They actually are selling this load of horse manure to the people of America? And worse yet, we never demand moderators that are real conservatives, much less truly unbiased ones! Unfortunately, once the candidates agree to the Commission’s debates, it’s a done deal…no wiggle room.
Why can’t we have moderators like Judge Jeanine Pirro, Lou Dobbs, Steve Malzberg or even Sean Hannity? Why are the moderators always Democrats? And why can’t both candidates choose the moderators? Instead we have an unelected board who decides who will ask the questions, and we know how it is slated right from the very beginning.
The Chosen Ones
So who are this year’s moderators? The same old leftist globalists who don’t want the status-quo upset by the likes of the candidate who actually loves America and her people and defies the globalist agenda. The Commission claims they are non-partisan, but I fail to see where even one of their chosen moderators is considered a Constitutional conservative. Every moderator is a democrat!
The presidential debates will be 90 minutes long, from 9 pm to 10:30 pm, sans commercials.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On September 2nd, 2016, Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr. (neo-con Republican) and Michael D. McCurry, (Democrat), co-chairs of the ‘non-partisan’ Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), announced the moderators for the 2016 general election presidential and vice presidential debates. The moderators are as follows:
First presidential debate:
Lester Holt, Anchor, NBC Nightly News – (Democrat)
Monday, September 26, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY
Vice presidential debate:
Elaine Quijano, Anchor, CBSN and Correspondent, CBS News (former CNN reporter – Democrat)
Tuesday, October 4, Longwood University, Farmville, VA
Second presidential debate (town meeting):
Martha Raddatz, Chief Global Affairs Correspondent and Co-Anchor of “This Week,” ABC – (Democrat)
Anderson Cooper, Anchor, CNN – (Democrat) (He is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt)
Sunday, October 9, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO
Third presidential debate:
Chris Wallace, Anchor, Fox News Sunday – (Democrat)
Wednesday, October 19, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV
The CPD also announced that Steve Scully, Senior Executive Producer, White House and Political Editor for C-SPAN Networks, will serve as backup moderator for all the debates.
Matt Lauer (Democrat) will host the Commander-in-Chief Forum on Wednesday, the 7th of September, in New York City. Lauer is the regular co-host of NBC’s Today Show. Matt’s interviews with Democrats are always very easy going and lightweight, but the questions put to Republican guests are filled with bitter queries, and subtle attacks.
The Daily Caller reports that this interview will be a one-hour forum where Clinton and Trump will answer questions about national security, military affairs, and veteran’s issues in front of an audience mainly made up of members of the military. The two candidates will not be on the stage at the same time, but will instead go back to back.
The Clinton Foundation Connection
It is worth noting that Matt Lauer is listed as a ‘notable past member’ on the Clinton Global Initiative’s website — along with Anderson Cooper and Katie Couric.

Since all of the moderators are Democrats, and two of the moderators are very involved with the Clintons and their Foundation, which side would you expect they’d be on?
Despite Hillary Clinton’s ongoing scandals, her close ties to media outlets such as Google, CNN, PBS and The New York Times have seemed to pay off. All of them, and more, have gone out of their way to censor negative stories about Clinton, particularly ones involving the Clinton Foundation. The media outlets who suppress harmful Clinton stories all have one common thread. They’ve all donated to the Clinton Foundation.
Question I have, how are they going to control Hillary’s out-of-control coughing? Are they going to fill her with Caught Suppressants before the forum? And by the way, 2:10 minutes into her speech she blames her coughing on Donald Trump “Everytime I think about Trump I get Allergic” she says. See video of her out-of-control coughing in Cleveland Ohio yesterday below. Apparently Mr. Trump is getting under her skin.
Liberal Controlled Media
I’m sure Mr. Trump is well aware of what he is up against. He faced the same thing in every primary debate, including from the moderators on Fox News, the so-called “fair and balanced” station. Last April, 2016, Breitbart reported that only 6% of people say they trust the media. A poll in July of 2015 found that 70% of Americans believe the media is biased. Needless to say, the informed American public trusts used car salesmen more than they trust the main stream meat market media.
Neither do we trust the moderators on any of these debates to be fair. Why should they be…they’re all in the can for Hillary Clinton. Donald J. Trump knows this and is well prepared for battle. As my friend Marilyn stated in her latest column, Mr. Trump would be very wise to answer Hillary and the audience, “My statements support the Constitution of the United States.”
Apply the statement to specific policies, like: “I believe mine is the best solution to the problem of illegal immigration because it supports the Constitution of the United States. It follows the laws set down by the Constitution. What you suggest as a solution to this problem violates the founding documents of this nation!”
You can’t top that, it’s door closed!
