CNN Claims That The Democrat-Media Complex Push for No Debates Is an "Imaginary Controversy"

Just as antifa violence is a "myth."

Bonus points: CNN also pushed the "no debates" operation themselves.

While calling it imaginary.

Yup. Which was the point of the trial balloon. It was floated out and immediately got shot down. Or at least shot *at*. I wouldn't be surprised if they try to roll out some other version: The debates will be remote (so someone off-camera can feed Biden lines), the debates will involve pre-recorded Q&A. But this particular trial balloon looks like it asploded.

119 Go back and watch the 3 debates with Felonia now, and Trump wiped the floor with her in 2 & 3. The first was more of a draw.

The lying liars of the MFM gaslighted endlessly about how Felonia won all 3 by a landslide.

190 There are definitely fireworks. Doesn't mean there wasn't something else. The big explosion is pretty amazing. Don't know if fireworks are a plausible explanation for something of that magnitude.

The videos of it are very much like nuclear test films. No precursor wave, but I suppose since it's next to the water, the blast wave causes an instant vapor effect, so a large egg-shaped cloud forms along the edge of the wave, as with the Mike shot in the Pacific (think it was that one that had the most dramatic vapor cloud).

198 I think that the Biden animators are communicating to Trump a long list of demands for debates. Like only pre recorded questions and pre recorded answers for Biden but not Trump. Completely asymmetrical requirements. This will all be done via untracked informal communication like face to face.


They will soon follow this with a leaked or publicly viewed, probably broadcasted, message to Trump thats something like: "so as we discussed Biden is still eager for a number of debates so why the delay?".


The instant Trump disagrees with the format assigned by MSM, which will be identical to what Biden's animators said, the news will be "Trump Refuses to Debate, Afraid of Biden, Ready to Drop Out".

215 Gobbled up so many treats
Ate 'em all, took my chances
Went the distance, now I can't see my feet
Half a man with the hunger of five

So many times, it happens too fast
You crack a toilet for glory
Don't lose your grip on the meals gone past
You must fight just to keep them inside

It's the Eye of the Tater, it's the millionth bite
Bulkin' up to the weight of a freighter
And the fat, sweaty beta snacks again in the night
And he's watchin' us all... with the Eye of the Tater

Face to plate, it's time to eat
Hangin' moobs, stayin' hungry
He stacks the table with a pile of sweets
For any meal, he'll steal, he'll connive

It's the Eye of the Tater, it's the millionth bite
Bulkin' up to the weight of a freighter
And the fat, sweaty beta snacks again in the night
And he's watchin' us all... with the Eye of the Tater

Scale shot straight to the top
Had the gut, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Half a man with the hunger of five

It's the Eye of the Tater, it's the millionth bite
Bulkin' up to the weight of a freighter
And the fat, sweaty beta snacks again in the night
And he's watchin' us all... with the Eye of the Tater

281 FNC reports Cuomo is very nervous about lefty policies in NYC. Obviously, too little, too late but it is interesting who he is most concerned about. It isn't the middle class, it is millionaires and billionaires. He could care less about everyone except the very wealthy, and you know why? Tax revenue. Cuomo is ultimately only concerned with paying state employee salaries.

A single percent of New York's population pays half of the state's taxes, he said, "and they're the most mobile people on the globe."

305 >>FNC reports Cuomo is very nervous about lefty policies in NYC. Obviously, too little, too late but it is interesting who he is most concerned about. It isn't the middle class, it is millionaires and billionaires. He could care less about everyone except the very wealthy, and you know why? Tax revenue. Cuomo is ultimately only concerned with paying state employee salaries.


Think we now know why Cuomo has been relentlessly attacking Florida with claims it is a COVID nightmare.
He doesn't want his wealthiest relocating there, thus killing the state's tax revenue.

Remember a few years back when NJ's wealthiest resident moved to FL and they lost 20% of their tax revenue?

LOLGF, Cuomo, you;ve already alienated your residents.

375 171 Did you know that you have eyes on the backs of your knees?
Posted by: zombie


If one looks very carefully, under certain lighting conditions, at the skin on the backside of your knees (i.e. the crease where your leg bends), you may notice that there is a certain iridescence to the skin. (The younger you are, the more apparent this is.) Some doctor (in Germany, I believe) learned about this odd fact in medical school, and remained curious about it, as he thought that the iridescence of the skin there physically resembled some primitive "light sensitive areas" (that is to say, very primitive eyes) on the skin of some invertebrates, like worms, and also on some kinds of reptiles.

Hypothesizing that the back-of-the-knee iridescent skin might be some kind of evolutionary leftover of an area of light-sensitive skin that never fully evolved into eyes, he set up an experiment to determine if people could "see" with the backs of their knees. He had volunteers in a lab try to sleep face down, while wearing a snug eye-covering sleep mask, with the lower leg uncovered. Then, when he determined that they were sound asleep, he shined a bright light onto the backs of their knees, making sure it was from a florescent bulb, so the subjects could not feel any warmth from the light. The goal was to "wake them up" by having them "see" the light -- a known phenomenon with normal eyes (i.e. if you shine a light onto the closed eyelids of a sleeping person, it tends to wake them up, as they can see the light through the lids, and some deep-seated genetic response wakes people [and animals] up in bright light.)

Although officially the experiment was "inconclusive" because there was not a 100% positive response rate, the test WORKED on some (but not all) of the volunteers. Those people were indeed woken by the light shone on the backs of their knees, seemingly confirming that the skin there was light-sensitive, i.e. were primitive "eyes."

He only ever did the experiment once, so there was no further data as to why some people's knee-eyes responded to the light, but not other people's. Maybe in those people the skin was still light-sensitive, but the brain has lost the ability to "process" that stimuli.

Short version: You have eyes on the backs of your knees.

My fear is that voters will decide that there's no way he'll actually be allowed to assume the office, and that if elected the VP will replace him. However, because he's still nominally the candidate, any attempts to go after the VP will be brushed aside by the media as Trump being racist and sexist, or a sign that Trump is too afraid to challenge Biden directly.

It's possible it was one MOFO of a fireworks factory, but all those flashes could also be indicative of a munitions depot. Would you do that on several floors of a building though? Who knows, they're all freaking nuts.

Hanna urged McKinley to match Bryan's tour with one of his own; the candidate declined on the grounds that the Democrat was a better stump speaker: "I might just as well set up a trapeze on my front lawn and compete with some professional athlete as go out speaking against Bryan. I have to think when I speak." Instead of going to the people, McKinley would remain at home in Canton and allow the people to come to him; according to historian R. Hal Williams in his book on the 1896 election, "it was, as it turned out, a brilliant strategy. McKinley's 'Front Porch Campaign' became a legend in American political history.

Those people were indeed woken by the light shone on the backs of their knees, seemingly confirming that the skin there was light-sensitive, i.e. were primitive "eyes."

He only ever did the experiment once, so there was no further data as to why some people's knee-eyes responded to the light, but not other people's. Maybe in those people the skin was still light-sensitive, but the brain has lost the ability to "process" that stimuli.

Short version: You have eyes on the backs of your knees.

Heck, he's not even the same guy he was in the debates! Not even close.

Nothing surprising though. Dementia is weird and it's kind of like a pachinko machine. The brain frantically starts to rewire itself trying to find balance. Sometimes there's even what seems to be progress, until it's not.

Lots of sideways steps, sometimes even a bounce up, but gravity always wins.

If he were the same man we saw in the debates, there would be some hope he could read a teleprompter after rehearsing the answers for a week in a virtual debate. Now, that's totally off the table. Anybody that saw the pathetic Youtube beg-ads where he couldn't even do a 10 second spot (after who knows how many takes) would know that.

There may in fact be a fireworks factory or warehouse on the site. What better disguise for a warehouse full of military-grade bombs, missiles, mines, and ammunition than a fireworks business? That would easily explain the strict no-smoking rules enforced all around the building, the very high barbed-wire fence (fireworks are expensive and well worth stealing), and the very careful unloading by un-smiling men of big boxes and pallets marked "Do Not Drop!" and "This Side Up" and "Flammable: Keep Away from Open Flames" and so on. The perfect cover. All the more so if the warehouse ever blows up, either accidentally or from enemy action. You can say "Oops! Sorry about all the deaths and massive damage! You know how fireworks are. Hope everyone's homeowner's insurance was up to date."

That's the dementia shuffle. Yep. Your balance is affected by dementia/alzheimer's. So we're going to see a LOT more of him not walking on his own. And that whole "looking around" with toddler-like amazement is going to give way to him concentrating heavily on his feet.

Because he will take a tumble soon. And then he'll become very paranoid about falling. I think he might still be too young to easily break a hip, but we might see him bandaged after tearing some skin or hitting something.

--

There is video of the Mexican fireworks factory explosion online. In that video, it is apparent that fireworks are involved, as you see some of the commonly seen secondary explosions, as if the fireworks were detonated on the ground. The Beirut explosion had none of that.

Yeah, you would have had to have a scenario where the gas settled low and the fire burned down to it. But, that's a pretty active primary fire tossing all kinds of sparky shit.

590 Mossad - well, actually, more the special ops unit of the IDF - did some hits in Beirut in the 80s (Hez), car bombs. One was messy enough that it kind of cooled their jets on that tactic. Anything's possible, but I would bet against an Israeli operation here, where they would know massive collateral damage would result.

Guess we'll see.

598 Hmmm. Allegedly, Hezbollah's long-range missile project had activities in the area of the explosion. Complicated, but views prior to blast do not show an area with any kind of security at all - visual, physical, etc. Seems like a very unlikely look for a project of that sensitivity. In any case, "accurizing" their existing primitive rockets has been Hez's big, and very scary, advance. Don't see why any development work of any kind would take place in Lebanon or Syria. That stuff's been going back home (Iran) for decades.
