Upcoming GOP Debate--The Fix Is In
Since I'm taking a few days off beginning tomorrow and will not be back writing or live on my daily radio program until Monday, September 21, I wanted to make a few comments about the upcoming GOP presidential debate on September 16.
GOP leadership has chosen Hugh Hewitt to moderate the Debate. He is the darling of the moderate wing of the Republican Party.
A strong public supporter of Marco Rubio, he generally stands against the other more conservative candidates. The strength of his personal opposition is weighed by his personal assessment of their chances of winning the nomination.
Hewitt's views are consistent with Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney. They are, for the most part, in direct conflict with people like Phylis Schlafly, Mark Levine, Laura Ingram, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Howie Carr, Sarah Palin, several of the presidential candidates, and a host of other conservative voices in both the media and Congress.
His views are also not consistent with a majority of Americans. That is why Dole, McCain and Romney were "candidates," not "presidents."
Here are some specifics to think about as you watch the debate next week.
Breitbart News is concerned about how Hewitt, under the guise of a conservative, will use the debate to sway voters. Obviously the GOP establishment believes he can.
Breitbart has done an in depth analysis on this matter.
Their article begins with, "Hugh Hewitt, the moderator picked by GOP leaders for the upcoming candidates' debate is firmly on the establishment's side in its struggle against outsider Donald Trump."
But its not really about Trump.
It's about much more than Trump. It's about borders, language and national identity.
I strongly encourage you to read it before you watch the debate.
I will resume writing this daily article on Monday, September 21.
Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.
