October 20, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Moderator Kristen Welker has announced this week’s presidential debate will yet again focus on coronavirus, race, and climate change, among other topics. 

But why? Does anyone care about these issues other than beltway liberals and coastal elites? 

The real reason Welker has chosen to rehash these topics (they were talked about ad nauseam at the first debate and at the Town Hall events last week) is because they distract from the issues President Trump is strongest on — social media censorship, trade, culture, and foreign policy. 

Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien released a statement calling out Welker’s bias. He observed that typically the final debate focuses on international affairs and that it’s obvious the debate commission wants to keep Democrat challenger Joe Biden’s pro-China record hidden from voters.  

Even 97-year-old Bob Dole tweeted about how the commission is running interference for Biden. 

It should be clear by now that Sleepy Joe has the collective support of the mainstream media, Big Tech, the Deep State, and the Vatican. Not one major news network covered the damning New York Post stories about his family’s connections to Ukraine and China. Senator Josh Hawley was right in saying Twitter is guilty of “election interference.” 

After days of saying nothing about the Post reports, the media finally broke its silence this week. And just how have they reported on it? By blaming Russia, of course.

“We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin,” Congressman Adam Schiff said on CNN. 

Give me a break! The lies upon lies upon lies — not only lies of commission but also lies of omission — told by these people are truly staggering. Shame on all of them for covering for Biden’s senility and corruption. They truly hate you and me. That much is clear. 

President Trump has been smart to hammer home the Biden e-mails on the campaign trail. “He is a criminal. He got caught. Read his laptop,” Trump said to reporter Jeff Mason Monday. “And you know who's a criminal? You're a criminal for not reporting it.”  

Preach, King!

Thursday’s debate is Trump's last chance to convince voters he deserves to be re-elected.  

First and foremost, he needs to expose Big Tech’s bias and ask Biden straight up about his connections to the Chinese communist party and his son’s dealing with them. Don’t bring up Hunter’s drug problems but simply lay out Biden's family ties to China so everyone knows he’s their preferred candidate.  

Trump can amplify that message by echoing some of the talking points laid out by White House trade adviser Peter Novarro on the Daily Caller’s podcast the other day. He needs to remind Americans that Biden supported NAFTA and voted for China’s entry into the World Trade Organization. And he needs to drive home the fact that the former VP is in no way a blue-collar, labor-union, regular guy from Scranton. He’s a made man in the service of international elites

Lastly, Trump has to has to! demand Biden denounce Antifa and give a clear answer on court packing. He should also let Biden talk and not interrupt him half as much as he did at the first debate. Biden’s a gaffe machine who can’t help but put his foot in his mouth. Give him enough rope and he’ll hang himself, as the expression goes. 

If Trump can do all that, he’ll have scored a decisive victory and the polls heading into the last week of the campaign should tighten considerably.

No matter which way you look at it, the first Presidential debate was a disaster.  There was no winner, but there was a clear loser: the American people. 

With free speech hanging in the balance, America deserves better than a biased and weak moderator like Chris Wallace.  America also deserves to listen to the candidates answer complex questions in more than two minute sound bites.

Please SIGN this urgent petition to the Commission on Presidential Debates and urge them to select former Navy SEAL Commander Jocko Willink as moderator for another presidential debate.

Let's think outside the box. Most Americans listen to long format podcasts. So let's ditch the ridiculous idea that you can communicate complex policy answers in 60 seconds and instead allow the candidates to speak.  And while we are at it, let's look to someone outside the political talking-head world to moderate this badly needed long format debate!

That is why we are calling on one of America's top podcaster, a man who has devoted most of his life to serving his country, to come to its aid once again.  Help us draft decorated Navy Seal Commander Jocko Willink to moderate a long-format debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.


The corporate legacy media and the Big Tech monopolies cannot be trusted. When the survival of civil society hangs in the balance who could be better to rely on than Retired Navy Seal Commander Jocko Willink?

Besides being a decorated military hero, Jocko Willink happens to also be a gifted communicator, and his Jocko Podcast is in the Top 100 podcasts on Apple's Top Charts.

Jocko Willink embodies the non-partisan spirit of America's greatest president, George Washington and as such is much more likely to conduct an interesting and informative debate on issues that are actually important to the Amerian people, rather than cater to the hyper-polarized corporate legacy media monopolies.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Help us draft retired Navy Seal Commander Jocko Willink to host a real presidential debate where the two candidates are given direct unbiased questions and then allowed sufficient time to answer them.

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION TO DRAFT JOCKO WILLINK and feel free to contact him by leaving comments on his Twitter account: @jockowillink

With the shocking mainstream and social media blackout of any information that could damage Joe Biden's campaign as well as the revelations that the second presidential debate moderator, Steve Scully was coordinating with anti-Trump politico Anthony Scaramucci, we need to think outside the box.

Please SIGN our petition to draft Jocko Willink. Thank you!
