They call them debates!
In reality, it’s “The Presidential Reality Show.” A Made-for-TV side show.
Watch last week’s fourth Democratic presidential “debate.”
On complex matters of health care, the economy, war and peace, etc., the contestants were allotted the grand total of 75 seconds to answer questions provided by the Presstitute’s from CNN, the Cartoon News Network, and the New York Times, a.k.a. the “Toilet Paper of Record.”
The most popular subject of the three-hour show was Donald Trump, who was mentioned 48 times.
On the “It’s the economy, stupid,” jobs just got 6 percent and education 2 percent of debate time.
And as for education, nothing was discussed regarding the antiquated, 19th century, Industrial Age, assembly-line, mind-numbing, baby-sitting, follow-orders, don’t-think-for-yourself, tax-payer-gouging fraud called “Education.”
Indeed, by their deeds you shall know them, and the deeds of the U.S. educational system are evident by its rapid cultural, moral, and spiritual decline.
“Regime change” was mentioned 11 times, all by Representative Tulsi Gabbard.
Reaching for the highest of his philosophical acumen, Cory Booker quoted Yogi Berra.
The first question, asked by CNN Presstitute Anderson Cooper, was whether President Trump should be impeached?
All twelve candidates said, “Yes.”
As we had alerted Trends Journal subscribers since the impeachment movement began, as proven, the media would escalate its Side Show, wasting valuable time with this issue while ignoring critical current events forming future trends.
Cooper, Gloria Vanderbilt’s baby, another arrogant boy born on third base and thought he hit a home run, by his words, showed his Presstitute credentials with putting out what his corporate whoremasters pay him to sell. Here is his how he set up his next question for former VP Joe Biden:
“The impeachment inquiry is centered on President Trump’s attempts to get political dirt from Ukraine on Vice President Biden and his son, Hunter. Mr. Vice President, President Trump has falsely accused your son of doing something wrong while serving on a company board in Ukraine. I want to point out there’s no evidence of wrongdoing by either one of you.”
Biden simply agreed with Cooper’s assessment.
On the economy, the majority of time was not spent on income inequality or jobs but on how Senator Elizabeth Warren was going to pay for her “Medicaid For All” proposal. Specifically, when asked, would she raise taxes to pay for it?
Senator Warren avoided the question, sticking to her campaign line that, overall, health care costs for middle class and poor Americans would go down… but she did not state how much it would cost them in new taxes.
Bernie Sanders, also a strong advocate for “Medicaid for All,” was more direct, responding that, of course, taxes would have to be raised on every American, but they would no longer have co-payments and other out-of-pocket expenses.
Senator Kamala Harris focused her attack on the pharmaceutical industry, which she claimed made $72 billion in profits last year (a fact check showed she was close: it made $69 billion).
Most Fiery Exchange
The most heated interplay of the evening was between Tulsi Gabbard and Mayor Pete Buttigieg over President Trump’s withdrawal of troops from parts of Syria.
Gabbard, who served as a military officer in the Army Reserve, did two tours of duty in Iraq, including in 2005 at the height of the war, and she has been a consistent vocal opponent of the U.S. policy of “regime change.”
She criticized “many of the politicians in our country from both parties who have supported this ongoing regime-change war in Syria that started in 2011, along with many in the mainstream media, who have been championing and cheerleading this regime-change war.”
She said, as president, “I will end these regime-change wars by doing two things, ending the draconian sanctions that are really a modern-day siege, the likes of which we are seeing Saudi Arabia wage against Yemen, that have caused tens of thousands of Syrian civilians to die and to starve, and I would make sure that we stop supporting terrorists like Al Qaeda in Syria who have been the ground force in this ongoing regime-change war.”
Buttigieg, who served in Afghanistan, responded forcibly that Gabbard was “dead wrong”: “The slaughter going on in Syria is not a consequence of American presence, it is a consequence of a withdrawal and a betrayal by this president of American allies and American values.”
The military intelligence veteran of the Afghanistan War, a “G.I. Joe” who brags of his service in the 18-year illegal war and posts photos of himself in military drag with automatic rifle in hand, tried to rebut Gabbard’s claim that Syria was a U.S.-backed “regime-change” war.
He repeated the warmongers’ line that America’s involvement in Syria was a fight to defend civilians from the brutality of the government of President Bashar al-Assad… avoiding the fact that Washington, its Arab League Coalition of the Killing, and other murderous allies funneled billions in money and weapons to Islamist mercenaries to put their puppet in charge of Syria.
Gabbard responded, “So, really, what you’re saying, Mayor Pete, is that you would continue to support having U.S. troops in Syria for an indefinite period of time to continue this regime-change war that has caused so many refugees to flee Syria, that you would continue to have our country involved in a war that has undermined our national security, you would continue this policy of the U.S. actually providing arms in support to terrorist groups in Syria, like Al Qaeda, HTS, al-Nusra and others because they are the ones who have been the ground force in this regime-change war? That’s really what you’re saying?”
Responding to the question about the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, Joe Biden, who never met a foreign entanglement he wouldn’t get America entangled in, called Trump’s troop withdrawal “the most shameful thing that any president has done in modern history in terms of foreign policy.”
Confused as he usually is, Biden got his facts wrong and incorrectly stated that U.S. forces evacuating Syria were attacked by forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders said they want an “end to endless wars,” but they made it clear they felt the U.S. must continue supporting allies like the Kurds.
When Gabbard challenged Senator Warren to pledge to end the Syrian war, Warren refused to answer, saying we have to be “smart” about Middle East withdrawal, without detailing what “smart” meant.
Finding something really dumb and showing how dumb the Pressitutes are, toward the end of the three-hour Presidential Reality Show, Anderson Cooper referenced a recent photograph of talk show host/comedienne Ellen DeGeneres and former President George W. Bush watching a Dallas Cowboy’s football game together that stirred controversy among the people of Dumfukistan:
“I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s O.K. that we’re all different, DeGeneres, a lesbian and self-identified liberal said in response to the backlash about her hang with the former Republican president. In that spirit, we’d like you to tell us about a friendship that you’ve had that would surprise us and what impact it’s had on you and your beliefs.”
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: The so-called “debate” drew 8.3 million viewers in a nation of 253 million voting-age Americans.
This makes a grand total of just 0.3 percent of the voting population tuning in.
With the election over a year away and the race for the White House having begun a year ago, the general public are tuned out to what they consider an inconsequential Side Show.
TREND FORECAST: “Trump Trumps Dems in 2020”
The Trends Journal, the first news source to forecast Donald Trump’s 2016 White House win, now forecasts Trump will defeat all current Democrat challengers.
Despite President Trump’s low approval rating, the constant negative mainstream media coverage, and now the 24/7 impeachment drama, Trends Journal publisher, Gerald Celente, forecasts that “minus a currently unforeseen wild card, and there is no more wild of a card than the Trump card, Mr. Trump will win the Presidency.”
The only possible candidate, Celente believes, that can derail his victory is Tulsi Gabbard. Her military credentials and anti-Regime change positions, while anathema to the Democratic party and the mainstream media, will ring true to a vast majority of Americans, who have shown in polls that America’s Middle East wars are not worth the price… in both money spent and lives lost.
War Hawk Congress
Last Wednesday, 14 October, the vast majority of the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution against President Trump’s policy of withdrawing troops from Syria.
In the 354-60 vote, 129 Republicans joined the unanimous support of Democrats for keeping the war going.
Representative Eliot Engel, the Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, stated that President Trump’s withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria “was a betrayal of our partners. It was a gift to Russia, a gift to Iran, a gift to ISIS, and a gift to Assad.”
The resolution calls on the United States “to present a clear and specific plan for the enduring defeat of ISIS.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated that Congress had a right to be involved in any decision to end war that is not in the Constitution.
But she ignored the fact the Constitution requires that only Congress has the authority to declare war… which Congress has violated since World War II, by giving the president the power to wage war.
According to a Hill-Harris poll released last Thursday, Americans are evenly divided on whether U.S. troops should withdraw from Syria. Thirty-three percent support withdrawal, 37 percent oppose. A significant 30 percent responded they were unsure.
