Presidential Debate Commision is Literally Full of Democrats and Never Trump Neocons

Kayleigh’s characterization of the Commission is of course correct. However, the corruption and bias of the Presidential Debate Commission goes beyond the simple fact that it’s in the tank for Joe Biden. The nominally Republican Chairman of Presidential Debate Commission, Frank Fahrenkopf, is both a co-founder and current board member of the International Republican Institute (IRI), a top “Color Revolution” propaganda outfit. The IRI was run by Never Trump neoconservative John McCain for decades. It is closely linked to the thoroughly discredited Steele Dossier at the center of the Russia Hoax.
At first glance, it might appear as though Fahrenkopf’s Republican Party membership, combined with his board membership at the International Republican Institute, lends him, and by extension the Debate Commission, some semblance of balance.
The Debate Commission’s board has a Republican Co-Chair and a Democrat co-Chair, creating the appearance of fairness and bipartisanship. Nothing could be further from the truth. Bipartisanship in the Trump era all too often means that the corrupt establishment elements of both parties join arms to undermine Trump and his agenda. A Debate Commission consisting of John McCain and Hillary Clinton would be technically bipartisan, but it would not be balanced when it comes to Trump and his supporters. Globalist Republicans and globalist Democrats have far more in common with each other than they do with Trump.
Our choice of John McCain in this example was not arbitrary. As it turns out, the late Senator John McCain served as the Chairman of the Board of the International Republican Institute for 25 years.
Just months before he died, John McCain took to Twitter to scold the Trump Administration for allegedly defunding the organization.
The Washington Post article in the above tweet reveals that George Soros’ Open Society Foundation was furious that Trump would dare to “downscale” a “democracy promotion event” at the State Department.

Perhaps McCain was just standing up for his friend Soros, who, incidentally, was a major contributor to the McCain Foundation.
That the current Co-Chair of the Debate Commission Frank Fahrenkopf is himself a sitting board member and Co-Founder of IRI offers insight into just what kind of Republican he isw and what sort of balance his Chairmanship really provides — namely, in weighting the scales even more heavily against Trump.
Fahrenkopf’s colleagues on the IRI board include Lindsey Graham, H.R. McMaster, and Senator Mitt Romney. This does not exactly inspire confidence for Trump supporters. By now, it is very clear exactly the type of Republican this organization caters to.
One of Fahrenkopf’s colleagues on the IRI board is especially outrageous — a man by the name of David Kramer.
Kramer wass an aide to the late Senator John McCain. He is most notorious for spreading the completely discredited Steele Dossier that served as the basis for the Russia Hoax.
David Kramer, the John McCain aide who leaked the discredited Christopher Steele dossier on President Trump, testified in a libel case that he spread the unsubstantiated anti-Trump material all over Washington during the presidential transition.
Mr. Kramer, a former State Department official and a Trump detractor, leaked dossier material to the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post’s Fred Hiatt, CNN’s Carl Bernstein, National Public Radio, McClatchy news service and others, he said. [AP]
Prior to his role at IRI, Kramer served as head of yet another “democracy promotion” NGO called Freedom House. In the following clip, Kramer offers some additional insight on where he stands politically. He notes that Freedom House was founded to fight four “isms” — fascism, nazism, communism and … isolationism. Isolationism is of course a smear word used to refer to the position of people like President Trump and the majority of the American people who reject the Bush-McCain foreign policy of forever wars and democracy promotion. That Kramer would conflate this position with nazism and communism is quite remarkable.

The cards have been stacked against Trump since the last presidential election cycle. Nothing has changed.
Remember when the old hag was fed the questions in at least one debate?
This time around they don't even try to be stealthy, they know they have the msm in their pocket.

Presidential debate moderator Steve Scully raised eyebrows on Thursday night with a tweet that is having critics question his objectivity ahead of the second matchup between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Scully, who is best known as the political editor of C-SPAN and host of "Washington Journal," sent a cryptic message that caused quite a stir on social media.

"@Scaramucci should I respond to trump," according to a tweet from his account.

On Friday morning, the tweet was deleted.

"What? Why is the next presidential debate moderator publicly asking one of Trump’s staunchest critics in Anthony Scaramucci if he should respond to the president? In a related story, Scully once interned for Sen. Joe Biden. Optics here are horrible & underscore mistrust in media," The Hill media reporter Joe Concha tweeted.


Scully is supposed to be objective, fair, and unbiased, right? So, what is he doing asking an Anti-Trumper anything concerning the debate? He once interned for Joe Biden, huh?

Was rigged the moment they took the debates away from the League of Women Voters, for having the audacity to allow Ross Perot into the debates in '92.

The only "viable" candidates allowed now are the ones the swamp wants you to "choose" from.
I'd forgotten that, good point!
