Pelosi Calls For Cancellation Of Debates

Now that the political conventions are over, Pelosi is reacting out of fear.

Leaning close to the mic, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told reporters yesterday, "I myself, just don't tell anybody I told you this, especially Joe Biden---I don't think there should be any debates."

I suspect the press whispered back---"Okay, your majesty, we'll go to work on it immediately."

Or something close to that.

Most of us would skip the normal response of, "Why would she not want debates?" and go directly to "How does she explain her command to the press?"

People paying attention already know "why."

Be informed, not misled.

Today on our radio program I will have a few comments on yesterday, the closing day of the National Republican Convention---including President Trump's acceptance speech.

You may join me from anywhere in the world, on the air, on your computer, or on your i phone. Here's how.

The great explanation.

Nancy explained, "I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody [who] has associations with the truth, evidence, data, and facts. I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him."

She says she believes Trump will act in a way "beneath the dignity" of the office and "belittle" the debates, using the word "skulduggery" more than once.

It's for the country, she says--explaining that she doesn't "want to see a repeat of 2016, with "Trump stalking Hillary Clinton like that" referring to a moment where Trump stood behind Hillary while she was making her case.

Pelosi says "It was disgraceful" and that she would have told Trump to "stay in his own corner."

I'm certain neither Pelosi nor the power base of the radical far-left wants to see a repeat of 2016.

Pelosi is recommending that "the nominees should take their own stage so they can have a more direct conversation with the American people, not an exercise in skulduggery."

Now that the nation has watched both the Democrats and the Republicans make their case, it appears that Nancy's whispers to the press indicate the growing level of fear that exists on the far-left, that there is a Trump title wave about to wash over Joe who is building sandcastles, passing his time, out of sight of the public, until he can be elected.

Joe Biden posted an interesting message on Twitter yesterday.

He tweeted that he knows "how hard it is for folks who are sick, struggling, and wondering how they'll get through the day."

He said, "To lead America, you have to understand America."

Will Biden show up for the debates?

Pelosi's "whisper" to the press follows mounting pressure from the pundits and the media allies that are urging Biden to forgo the traditional presidential debates.

The pressure has put conservatives on high alert because Biden usually does what he's told to do by his handlers.

Biden's campaign, however, has previously dismissed any chance of his not appearing as "imaginary controversy."

Biden himself has said, "Bring him on, I'm ready."

The debate commission has invited the candidates and Biden has formally accepted.

Recently Trump's campaign has sought assurances from the commission that Biden will debate Trump in person.

Trump attorney, Rudy Giuliani, sent a letter to the commission on August 6 that read in part:

"We must insist on a commitment that the two candidates will definitely appear on stage, in person---whether in a television studio without an audience or elsewhere---and not through separate, online transmissions where Mr. Biden could rely on notes, teleprompters or handlers."

The letter also said, 

"While we do understand that Mr. Biden has been sequestered in his basement in Wilmington, Delaware, for some time now, President Trump still believes that the American people deserve to see the candidates for president side by side at some point."

The debates are currently scheduled for Tuesday, September 29; Thursday, October 15; and Thursday, October 22.

The takeaway.

This presidential election is the most consequential since Abraham Lincoln---few if any disagree.

Joe Biden has called his presidency, if elected, a "place holder." He has also referred to his, should he be elected, as a "transition" presidency.

VP Mike Pence asked in his speech Wednesday evening, "A transition to what?"

I've called it a "Trojan Horse" presidency. So have others.

It's important to note that Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, not Joe Biden, gave the official Democrat rebuttal to President Trump's speech last night.

Pray for our country. Pray for our President.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
