Final debate: October 22, 9:00 pm EST

It should be a bit more controlled event. As each candidate is given 2 minutes to respond to a question, the opposing candidate’s microphone will be turned off.

Six topics were selected: Fighting Covid-19, American Family, Race in America, Climate Change, National Security and Leadership. This could change. See BBC link below. The basic format will not change.

Trump has already begun an attack on the selected moderator of the debate, Kristen Welker. In Arizona, Trump called her a “radical Democrat” , backed up by the New York Post and numerous Facebook postings, all completely baseless.

The “radical Dems” at this point covers about half all Americans who don’t favor Donald Trump as their president. At last count, perhaps more than half of all Americans, as noted Republicans are voting against him as well.

NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker, the moderator for the third presidential debate, has not donated money to Democrats, according to contribution data. Welker is currently registered to vote in Washington, D.C., with no party affiliation, according to the District of Columbia Board of Elections. A photo of Welker with Barack and Michelle Obama is from a 2012 White House reception for the press.

Fortunately, there are a lot better places to get your news, than the trashy New York Post, One American News or a lot of highly biased commentators on cable networks.

For those still undecided about who should be the next president, I suggest watching the debate, and checking the fact checker sites the next day to get a better understanding of who is telling the truth. Factcheck.org and politifact.com are my two favorites.

Last minute accusations of corruption, simple chants (ie: “lock her up”) or name calling are favorite tactics of Trump. The latest attack on the “Biden’s” is also baseless, and comes after a complete investigation by the Republican controlled Senate vindicated any wrong doing by Joe Biden, while Vice President. It is Rudy Guiliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, who is currently under investigation as two of his close associates have been arrested.

Please note this site accepts viewpoints to the contrary. Your comment may not be immediately posted, but I am making a real effort to check and approve every comment that isn’t offensive, spam or off topic.

Stay tuned,

Dave
