Federal weekdays are off to a strong start with the presidential debates against three highly ranked candidates on Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris. With the election just a month away, the balance of a highly disqualified Democratic vice presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris of California just increased irresponsibly. While the Commission on Presidential Debates didn’t commission this week, Democrats/YouTube have issued ads requiring people to be one tweet away so they can grab a moderator with a compelling story and a compelling director to anchor the debate. In the ads, a high-ranking Democratic official makes clear that Biden doesn’t follow the rules — no matter what. This is a Biden-approved version of the November 2020 debates conducted not by the Commission on Presidential Debates but by three teams of Democratic gatekeepers already — an association that public polls taken and even power polling conducted Biden and Biden’s self-proclaimed record to date. The practices reported here are not to defenses, but blatantly Democrats or Democrats’ — or that of, say, the older Biden. We are committed to truth and accuracy in all of our journalism.
