I think Trump will back out at the last minute because Chris Wallace is moderating the first debate. Chris recently called him on his shit and will do so again if the debate takes place. He's going to cite "bias" to legitimize not appearing. If he does appear, it will be an absolute disaster for him. Earlier today he was rambling batshit crazy conspiracy theories about Comey and Obama.
Of course, I may be wrong.

He will just scream Fox News stupid talking points (he has no ability to either remember or or even come up with anything else).

But regardless of what Biden does, the Orange Turd will "win" the debates by not answering one single question, according to the 40M+ people who think he's untouchable.
For the rest of us living in reality, it will be a different story. All Biden has to do is hammer home over 200,000 dead Americans and their blood on the Orange Turd's hands, how he didn't handle the pandemic and instead called it a hoax. Meanwhile, tens of millions of Americans are unemployed and the country is in the shitter, all because of Frump.

She has no qualification as an advisor other than daddy is the President. If you ever wanted a REAL example of nepotism, that's it. Why are so many people afraid to do that in pubic to their face instead of just preaching to the choir?
Oh, and spare me the "not supposed to attack the children" routine. She's a grown adult. She's pushing 40! She made a choice to not just be in the public lime light, she chose to work for daddy in the White House without any known skill that any other president would benefit from.

A lot of casual undecideds believe the false narrative that Biden is senile and out of it. They've never seen a full Biden speech, town hall, interview etc., so don't realize how coherent and forceful he can actually be, especially as of late. This is an opportunity to display that. They also are not aware of many of Trump's latest missteps re the military comments, the Woodward book quotes, etc. The debate will force Trump to address those issues, he cant control the narrative like he can do in a press conference. While most people have already made up their minds, Biden winning over a small percentage of undecideds here can make a big difference.

He’s going to say he’s had the greatest response to a pandemic in history. Who’s gonna dispute that, Woodrow Wilson?
He’s gonna say he delivered the biggest tax cut in history. It was yuge! In his second term he will ensure the savings trickle down to John and Maryann McFatass in Sheboygan. They won’t ever trickle anywhere.
Under his presidency we went from 12% unemployment to 8%. Of course Biden will fail to mention that we were at 4% when Trump took office.
Trump will let us know that anybody who wants a job can get one. As long as they’re willing to make a living separating chicken parts in a factory where nobody is required to wear a mask and hundreds of erstwhile coworkers have already been infected with Covid.

R57 - that is a brilliant point. On occasion, I force myself to watch Fox "News" to see what spin they put on all of Dump's scandals - which are so numerous that I can't possibly check in often enough (not to mention devote THAT much time to the sham Murdoch propaganda network). I also have a family full of crazed cult members who watch nothing but Fox "News" and I am used to them screaming about ridiculous happenings (that are never actually occurring) and being utterly ignorant about what actual reporting goes on day to day. It is fascinating how much time Murdoch's "news" network takes to address current issues as they need days to decide how they can spin it. To their credit, this must be a laborious task during a Dump presidency. Once they do, sound bites are sliced and diced to avoid much of any negative for any Repug (until said GOP defects - see Romney, etc.). If they can't spin - they race through reporting - making it too confusing for the viewer and downplay its significance. To your point, the beauty of the debates is that if they air them completely - this iron-fisted control over the narrative is almost impossible. While this will likely not change the minds of most of the Fox watching cult members, Biden does have a chance to address reality and land some nukes on Trumpy and his cultists if done correctly.

Here we go. The excuse for a poor performance has been revealed:
Mr. Trump’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh, issued a statement on Wednesday claiming, without evidence, that “some” of the chosen moderators “can be identified as clear opponents of President Trump” and charging that Mr. Biden “will actually have a teammate onstage.”
Mr. Murtaugh did not say which of the moderators he was accusing of bias, and the Trump campaign did not clarify when asked for additional comment. He also wrote that the choices “are not the moderators we would have recommended if the campaign had been allowed to have any input.” In fact, the debate commission never allows campaigns to formally advise on the choices of moderators.

When Trump debated Republcan primary opponents in 2016, he was a lousy debater---often silent for long time periods. Trump didn't even know what the "nuclear triad" meant. Rubio answered the question for him. It was Chris Christie that later slammed Rubio in the debates.
Trump used dirty tactics. His bud with the National Enquirer, David Pecker, did hit pieces on Ted Cruz, Rubio, and anyone else that was gaining on Trump.
While the media acted shocked about Trump's antics, they covered all his theatric rallies, and talked about each for hours. Trump called-in to Morning Joe regularly, talking about whatever he wanted to say. During those GOP primaries, Trummp received more coverage than all the other GOP candidates combined.
While HRC was being pounded endlessly in the media and by the Republicans about her Emails, Benghazi, and having bronchitis for a period,, Trump's sordid past was treated as entertainment, and he got a pass in the very limited scrutinizing of his history of financial shenanigans, let alone his adulterous behavior and other sexual allegations. His lies and denials were treated as just part of his living as a celebrity.

R80 - To use your reasoning, no one is going to change their vote no matter what happens at the debates anyway. No one is going to vote "against Biden" who isn't already a Trumptard. It's all about getting voters actually go to the polls (or bother to take the time to mail it in). I do agree with you on this point though - Republicans are always more dependable voters as a rule (Dems tend to be lazier on election day). I do know a handful of Republicans however who opted out of voting at all in 2016 (because even holding their nose they couldn't bring themselves to vote in that piece of trash); this time I am hoping they move to Biden/Harris and cast a vote. Everyone knows Trump all too well for a debate to change their vote one way or the other, but excitement for one and/or fear of the other actually drive voters to the polls.

Biden has been in dozens of debates throughout his political career in Delaware and nationally. He has ran for President three times. He does best when he is asserting himself and on the attack. Biden can deliver better than he takes when fired up. Trump's antics and gross verbage will bounce off Biden.
Recall Kamala's busing attacks on Biden and "I was that little girl" comments? Kamala got media praise for it, but her gains from it were short-lived. Biden actually started improving in polls, particularly with older black voters and his later primary debates had improved performances.
When Kamala Harris debates Mike Pence, she needs to put her prosecutor's hat on. Tim Kaine was way too cordial and deferential with Pence who delivered his talking points with little challenge from Kaine or the moderators. Pence's anti-gay history and stances were never brought up; nor his growing unpopularity as Governor of Indiana.
Kamala can't play the "nice girl" with Pence. Find Pence's jugular and hit him with questions of fact.

Other words of wisdom from r87:
[quote]Trump hates Putin but avoids creating unnecessary friction. Putin is a weak and insecure person. Trump dominates him personally and militarily. That said, the electorate are stupid enough to believe that Putin could sway the election.
[quote]A lot of dishonesty in this thread. China is working Hard to make Trump lose the election. We should all vote Trump for that reason alone. There are more important issues than gay rights.
[quote]Police brutality is a lie. It's in the same category as the Putin lie. The main focus should be fiscal restraint, containing China, and stopping nuclear proliferation ie north Korea. Democrats are just too extreme. They literally want open borders with Mexico. It's not easy being gay but supporting blacks is crazy because blacks want all gays dead. We are in a life and death battle with china; we can't have 13 percent of the population waging a racist war against us.
[quote]If Trump does not win: 1. China will continue to take over world. 2. Economy will collapse as Democrats spend too much. 3. We will look more and more like Mexico as Mexicans flood across border 4. BLM will continue to riot and destroy democratic cities 5. Whites will be murdered in the street by blacks 6.
[quote]Blacks are not educated and are criminals. Should not be allowed to vote. Blacks hate gays. Kill gays on sight. Republicans offer hope through conversion therapy etc
[quote]Why would a sane white person be comfortable with Mexicans flooding in? I just don't get that. I guess you think u are so superior to other races that they offer no threat. Race has been everything for thousands of years and across all countries including modern times. Our ancestors had to torture blacks to keep them from killing us. Those so called lynching were not simple hangings. Every possible form of torture was used to terrorize the black population into obeying the law.
[quote]R247 everyone used to be white in Europe. No other races. The neanderthals were murdered off. People kill the tribe a few miles away. DNA is everything. Kill foreign DNA.
[quote]We don't deserve democracy. We have allowed millions of Mexicans to flood in. We have allowed blacks to riot decade after decade. We have allowed China to build up a rival military. We have shipped our jobs overseas. I don't know how long Trump will live but I'm sure he will serve at least four terms.
[quote]Liberalism has gone too far. We need to close border and take whatever action is necessary to maintain a white majority. We must not become South Africa where gays are burned alive.
[quote]Why did blm choose to riot during covid? That's not sane. Trump kept the economy alive during the pandemic and did not overreact to blm terrorism. Trump is the epitome of stability.
[quote]R145 blacks are doing worse in their own countries. It's supposed to be a white country.
[quote]R149 it's always been a white country. That was an absolute given. The question was , are the Irish white. All the nonwhite immigration is just plain surreal

[R79], you won’t be surprised to learn that Roger Stone has *literally* urged King Donald to launch a coup-d’état if too many people vote against him.
Didn't we already learn that the Secret Service will escort him out? Since he's been exposing them to his maskless, wankfest, right wing rallies for the past 4 years, they'll probably happily throw him on the pavement. I have no doubt Barr is looking to pull all kinds of shit prior to the election, but when push comes to shove and Dump loses, Barr will happily push Dump in front of the bus

Trump, under pressure, skipped-out on one of the 2016 Republican primary debates. Instead, he did some staged fundraiser for a veteran's group who apparently never got the money.

He’ll find some reason to bow out. I think he’s already starting to malfunction because he realizes what worked four years ago has lost its magic. He’s like a vaudeville magician that does the same lame magic tricks every show and the crowd is starting to see him like for the dumb hack that he is (and always was).
This excludes those of us who always knew what he was—and those who love him because he validates their own racist/nationalistic bullshit. But he’s losing all the Hilary haters, the military, and sane, conservative- leaning America.

Barr and the Republicans will sabotage the voting if it looks like dump is going to lose. Barr has so much power as the head of the department of justice, all he needs is a few Republican governors to go along with him. Don't be surprised of swing states have millions of votes thrown out by Barr throwing the election.
Yes, I know, they could fight it in court but guess what, it would go to the Supreme court most likely and its been stacked with Republicans thanks to Dump.

R102 - Many of us have thought of the same thing for almost a year now and yes - this is no doubt the plan. It could be a fast ticket to civil war if they push it however. This is not 2000, Dump is not W and we are not coming off of 8 years of an amazing Clinton economy. I don't think that people will quietly allow this to happen this time around - but who knows. I certainly hope that Dem leaders and what is left of the fair media are ready for something like this. It certainly can't be a surprise if it does come to fruition and some very hard choices need to be made.

I don't doubt that DeSantis & Kemp are *already* doing that, but early voting in Ohio, for example, starts October 6th - a little over 3 weeks away. So while I don't doubt that Barr will try to pull something out of his considerable ass in advance of the election, I would think that time isn't really on his side at this point

Dont be too sure about that R104. Remember the Hillary investigation shit they came out with a week before the election? You don't think Trump is feeling even more emboldened now? Plus now we know for sure Russia is on his side and he has fired so many of the ethical people in power who would have stopped him.
|by Anonymous||reply 105||09/13/2020|
Point taken R105, however, in the Case of Hilary & Her Emails:
- A lot of people didn't like Hilary anyway & the re-investigation just confirmed they already thought about her - Comey (at that time) was a considered (somewhat) impartial; absolutely no one thinks Barr is impartial. - Dump was an unknown entity at that point, so a vote for him was very much a "fuck you" vote; everyone knows his shtick at this point
I don't doubt Barr will do *something* - maybe try to arrest Hunter Biden - but I do think think the bombshell revelation will be harder, not only due to the fact this country has had one disaster after another. I would have to think everyone is weary of it all at this point.

Is it necessary in a presidential election for the loser to concede to declare the winner?
|by Anonymous||reply 108||09/13/2020|
This is not rocket science
Many people who traditionally vote for Democrats hated Hillary. They thought it was fun to see her put in her place by Trump, no matter how crass he was. And he came off like the goofy bully mocking the girl who never forgets to tell the teacher that she forgot to put the homework on the board. The fact that Hillary was clearly rattled didn't help.
Hardly anyone hates Joe Biden or even mildly dislikes him.
So none of Trump's tricks will work.
He'll come off like the mean drunk cousin trying to pick a fight with lovable Uncle Joe
Then add in the fact that we all know what Trump is like as a politician and president, how much he did NOT "grow into the job" or "become presidential" and there's not much to worry about.
My only fear is that Trump will get into arguments with the moderators instead of Biden and it won't give Joe much speaking time. I could easily see Trump attacking Chris Wallace as if he was the candidate and not Biden.

Something that gives me hope is hearing Joe call for real-time fact checking. That indicates to me that they are aware of and preparing for the firehose of lies and, I hope, planning to have Joe stick to rational offense rather than trying to defend against the untruths. As much as I hate having the lies hanging out there, I don't think it's the best strategy for Joe to try to do two things at once.
But I am also skeptical that the first debate will even happen at all. Friday an unarmed Black man was pulled out of a Lyft, beaten and arrested for not having ID in GA. Last night NYPD aggressively interrupted a vigil for a cyclist who was hit by a bus. This morning he called for a show trial and immediate death penalty for whomever shot two cops in Los Angeles. The first debate is scheduled for one day after a major High Holiday. They would much rather have conflict and civil unrest than a calm, rational adult conversation.
We always focus on how evil and aggressive that orange thing is, but we forget that he has a reptilian brain and the bare-knuckles are actually a last resort. His main tactics are to slither away, obfuscate or distract.

Well, I don't think it's an unreasonable assumption that Dump will whine the entire time & complain about how badly he's treated by Wallace; most of the world will view this behavior as him acting like a pussy, but his base - with all their perceived victim mentality - will buy into this shit & blame his demise on Wallace & whoever else rather simply acknowledging the obvious - that Dump is a loser (because that makes them losers too).

[quote]CAN ANYONE explain to me what was SO SO SO wrong, illegal, corrupt, whatever Hunter Biden did besides taking jobs because of nepotism and making money?
Aside from that, you're quite correct Hunter didn't do anything wrong. The supposed "crime" is that Joe Biden protected Hunter and Burisma Holdings by insisting that the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Viktor Shokin, be removed, which resulted in investigations being shut down, protecting Hunter from prosecution. There are a few problems with that theory.
1. Shokin was removed specifically because he *wasn't* investigating crime, that he was ignoring rampant corruption.
2. There never was any investigation into Hunter Biden, so there was nothing to "shut down" and no need to "protect" Hunter, about whom there were no allegations of wrongdoing.
3. Even worse, it's alleged that Shokin, who inherited the investigation into allegations of money laundering and tax evasion against Burisma from 2010 to 2012, was trying to solicit bribes from the owner of the company, oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, in exchange for shutting down the investigation.
4. Hunter Biden joined Burisma in 2014, 2 years after the alleged offenses occurred, and it was announced at the time that he was being brought in to help clean things up. Yeah, this was mostly a PR move and it's doubtful that Hunter actually did anything, but there are no allegations of wrongdoing against Hunter Biden himself, other than trading on his father's name, which is not illegal.
5. Joe Biden was acting as a representative of the Obama administration, not on his own behalf. And he was supported in this effort by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund. *Everyone* wanted Shokin gone.

|by Anonymous||reply 120||09/13/2020|
Well, R120, that's right up there with Trump's claims to have documentation that Obama wasn't born in the U.S. Giuliani has been claiming for over a year that he's sitting on a blockbuster expose with documents that will destroy Joe Biden. Yet, somehow, those documents never appear.
Rudy does have an affidavit from Shokin in 2019, if I recall correctly, but nobody really believes it, particularly since Shokin's assistants at the time have pointed out that Shokin is lying.
As for the China stuff, there is a new "documentary" out that claims that both Bidens profited from China deals at the expense of U.S. security but even the conservative New York Post doesn't take it very seriously and points out some glaring holes in the film.
|by Anonymous||reply 121||09/13/2020|
Worse for Giuliani is the news that he got played by a Russian agent, Andrii Derkach.
Back on topic: keep in mind Trump's overweening confidence in his own abilities. Remember that he was eager to be deposed by the Mueller investigation because he thought he was smarter than they were. He had to be held back by his own team there. He has also claimed that he's not even bothering to practice for the upcoming debates with Biden. Is it true? Who knows? Both are equally plausible: that he isn't preparing and that he is but is lying about it.
Trump at the upcoming debates is likely to be just another campaign appearance that only his supporters will love. It will be just one lie after another, painting a dystopian future under Biden. Unless there is real-time fact-checking, Biden is going to have to adjust his debate style to handle what is commonly known as a "Gish Gallop." From Wikipedia:
[quote]The Gish gallop is a technique used during debating that focuses on overwhelming an opponent with as many arguments as possible, without regard for accuracy or strength of the arguments. The term was coined by Eugenie Scott and named after the creationist Duane Gish, who used the technique frequently against proponents of evolution.
[quote]During a Gish gallop, a debater confronts an opponent with a rapid series of many specious arguments, half-truths, and misrepresentations in a short space of time, which makes it impossible for the opponent to refute all of them within the format of a formal debate. In practice, each point raised by the "Gish galloper" takes considerably more time to refute or fact-check than it did to state in the first place. The technique wastes an opponent's time and may cast doubt on the opponent's debating ability for an audience unfamiliar with the technique, especially if no independent fact-checking is involved or if the audience has limited knowledge of the topics.
Mitt Romney used this technique in his first debate against Obama, a debate that he is generally believed to have won. Obama was prepared in rounds 2 and 3 and was better able to handle the flood of bullshit.
I'm pretty sure that Biden and his team know this about Trump and have devised a strategy to deal with it. He did something similar against Paul Ryan in their vice-presidential debate and he handled Ryan's bullshit very well. We'll have to see how well he adjusts to Trump.

One advantage that Trump will continue to have, that he also had in 2016, is that he's going to be graded on a curve, as the national media expect him to provide a flood of deranged bullshit. If he has one or two moments where he reins in the bullshit and is semi-coherent, the media will declare him all "Presidential" and that could well be the story of the debate.
Four years in and the media *still* don't know how to handle Trump.
