First it was the media that imploded and lost all of its credibility by refusing to tell the truth about, well, much of anything. For years groups like the Media Research Center have been exposing just how biased the ‘main stream media’ is. It’s no longer something that anyone disputes. CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post et al. seem to all be in the tank for the Democrat Party. Conversely, the commentary on Fox News is heavily pro-Trump … at night at least. I think we would agree that OAN is geared toward conservative and Trump supporting viewers.
After the media burnt all of its credibility, the federal law enforcement apperatus was the next to fall. The botched handling of the Clinton email investigation, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, the Podesta brothers, not to mention the entire Russian collusion hoax, the FBI and DOJ have managed to lose all credibility with the American people, in my view.
The latest establishment outfit to suffer the same fate, to be unmakes for their bias in the eyes of the public, is the Commission on Presidential Debates. Bob Dole recently came out and said that none of the so-called Republicans on the commission support Trump, according to The Hill.
This should come as no surprise seeing as thus far each ‘moderator’ has, IMHO, acted more like they are debating Trump than moderating a debate or town hall. Steve Scully, the man picked by the commission to moderate the debate that never occurred once Tweeted an article saying ‘No, Not-Trump, Ever.’

After mistakenly sending out a public tweet, and then lying about it, saying he was ‘hacked,’ Scully has been suspended by CSPAN.
Then, in the debate that wasn’t, due to the unilateral rule change of the Commission on Presidential Debates, Trump’s dueling town hall was ‘moderated’ by Ms. Guthrie. One need only watch a few moments of the event to see that Savannah was less of a journalist and more of an activist, IMHO.
It is my conclusion, and that of many on the right, and quite frankly, it seems to be President Trump’s assessment as well, that the COPD (Commission on Presidential Debates) is in the tank for Biden.
Still not convinced? Have a look at what Fox News is reporting about the up coming debate’s ‘moderator:
Fox News reported:
‘All eyes are turning to NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker as she prepares to host the third and final presidential debate Thursday.
But Trump supporters who took issue with hard questioning by previous moderators like Chris Wallace and Savannah Guthrie may find themselves pining for those combative hosts after Welker is done with the president.
Welker comes from an established Democratic family — who have poured cash into party coffers, and to Trump opponents, for years.
Her mother, Julie Welker, a prominent real estate broker in Philadelphia, and father, Harvey Welker, a consulting engineer, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and close to $20,000 to Barack Obama alone.
There was also $3,300 for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign and $2,100 for Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential effort against Trump. Another $7,300 was contributed to the Democratic National Committee between 2004 and 2020.
In 2012, Welker and her family celebrated Christmas at the White House with the Obamas.
Though Kristen Welker’s party registration is not listed today, she was a registered Democrat in Washington, DC, in 2012 and in Rhode Island in 2004.
“Mr. President, yes or no. … have you ever worked for Russia. Yes or no?” she demanded during a confrontation in January 2019,’ feeding into the now disproven conspiracy theory that Trump is somehow Putin’s puppet.
Is that enough to convince you of her bias? Let’s say no, that is not enough. Everyone has political opinions, she is allowed to be a Democrat, it is just her job to keep her opinions out of her ‘journalism’ (something that is impossible and why we wear our bias on our sleeve.)
I mean, ‘come on, man’ the COPD would never let someone who had ‘tipped off’ a candidate’s campaign about a question before a ‘spontaneous’ interview…. right? WRONG.
Fox went on to explain, ‘In March 2016 Welker was busted on live television tipping off Hillary Clinton’s Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri about at least one question she planned to ask her during a post-debate interview in Michigan. At the time Clinton was locked in a fierce fight for the Democratic nomination against Sen. Bernie Sanders.‘
The Post was told by a White House official that “Anyone who’s ever dealt with Welker knows she’s an activist, not a reporter. The White House press team views her the same way they would AOC or Pelosi if they walked in the office.”
The fact Trump is willing to debate with such an obviously biased moderator is a estimate to his confidence, not just in himself, but in Joey B’s inability to even make contact with a softball …
