Tuesday's Wallace-Biden vs Trump Debate


Much of the discussion by the media after the debate on Tuesday points to the superficial optics and decrying the interference of President Trump when Joe Biden was trying to make his comments.  Their view is evident in the comments Federalist website by Joshua Lawson, managing editor of The Federalist.

 "Debates aren’t supposed to be WWE-style rumbles or Dean Martin celebrity roasts. Far from it. Debates should better inform us of a candidate’s positions on issues, show us a candidate’s ability to think extemporaneously, and reveal character. Debates don’t exist to amuse us. But make no mistake about it, there was nothing at all amusing about the political travesty and wasted opportunity we witnessed Tuesday night."

Mr. Lawson's solution is to give more power to the moderator.  Give him a cut off button to shut off the mike of a speaker.

Lawson and many others somehow think that the moderator (press) has the right to decide what the AmericanPeople should hear and that the candidates are simply role players and follow the moderator's cues.  It is evident from the questions that Wallace selected for the debate and how he worked to get his point of view across that this is not a desirable approach.

The video below suggests that giving the press more authority is the worst thing you could do.


This is your press core


For those of you who have attended monthly meetings in business or other organizations, where you might expect to discuss important issues that happened and where everyone has prepared the data required to have an intelligent discussion and then someone walks into the meeting and dumps some new topic on the table, which few are even aware of, and demands to talk about it.  Most often, this indicates that that person has not prepared for the meeting or doesn't like the answers they found.  Such is how the press core handles press briefings, except that they coordinate their attack with aid of nefarious sources.

The New York Times claims to have President Trump's tax returns and that he has paid little or no taxes.  President Trump contends that is not true.  Further, President Trump continues to state that the information that they seek by obtaining his individual tax returns is more readily discernable by reviewing the public records, filed annually, of the companies that in his portfolio.

Notice that they all assume the information from the Times is true.  Just like the Russia Collusion!  Just like the failure to respond to targeting of troops by the Russians!  Then notice how disrespectfully they shot out their insults at the end.

The American People deserve better.


President Trump's Address to the UN


Combatting Human Trafficking

The national media stays focused on issues that are parochial and sometimes trivial in comparison of the many real stories that they could cover.  As an example, the Trump administration has put an emphasis on combatting human trafficking.  Not long ago, President Trump meet with Indian leaders in Arizona where they discussed the issue of missing children and provided additional resources to help in locating these missing children.  In this video from OAN, the efforts and some of the successes of recent programs in locating mising children are highlighted.  It is an hour long video, but you can get the essence of the activies in the first 10 minutes.  If you have time to watch the whole video, you will learn a lot of which you were probably not aware.
