    Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s half-brother, will be attending the Las Vegas presidential debate cheering on Donald Trump. Donald Trump told reporters Malik “gets it far better than his brother.” “I’m excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again,” Malik told The Post. “I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik,” Trump said. “He gets it far better than his brother.” Malik agrees with Trump that the mainstream media is biased, and he dismisses the women who claim Trump kissed or groped them without their permission.

    "You'd be in Jail" -or- Welcome to the Banana Republic With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, and all of the Founders. This morning, the liberal press is up in arms at the suggestion that Trump might appoint a special prosecutor to "look into Hillary's situation." That's a good one. If your government has an avowed policy of not making payments to terrorists but pays $100 million per hostage to the largest terrorist organization in the world ... you may be living in a banana republic. If your Treasury Department and Central Bank are simply printing money in order to prop up...

    October 1st, 2016 WHAT DONALD TRUMP COULD LEARN FROM BASEBALL Baseball can teach you an awful lot about life. The old adage is that the game isn't over till the last man is out and the fat lady sings. This reflected perfectly to me the Catholic belief; you haven't lost the game until you draw your last breath and refuse to accept the Salvation won for you by Christ. My teen years were filled with the excitement of watching the Detroit Tigers. Tension grew whenever the hated Cleveland Indians came to town. Jimmy Piersall started it. He hated Detroit and...

    DEBATE MODERATOR ELAINE QUIJANO IS ADVOCATE FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS This election's presidential debates have their Candy Crowley. In the form of CBS' Elaine Quijano. Elaine Quijano was a very odd choice by CBS to moderate presidential debates. While other networks put forward major personalities with some level of respect, CBS put forward Elaine Quijano, who is on CBSN, is relatively young and known to fairly few people until today. Why did CBS decide to shake things up with Elaine Quijano? A look at her reporting makes that apparent. She's done a lot of pieces advocating for illegal aliens.

    The Commission on Presidential Debates reported on Friday that there were in fact issues with Donald Trump’s microphone at the Debate Monday evening at Hofstra university in New York. Following the debate, Trump told the press that they “gave me a defective mic. Did you notice that? My mic was defective within the room,” CNN reports. Trump posed the question: “Was that on purpose?” While it may be too early to call it anything other than a technical malfunction, the Commission on Presidential Debates said “there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate...

    In a speech Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump called the first presidential debate with Hillary Clinton “rigged,” and seemed to place much of the blame on the moderator, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt. “Then I had to put up with the anchor, and fight the anchor all the time on everything I said,” Trump said. “What a rigged deal.” The comments represent a shift from the morning after the debate, when Trump told Fox and Friends “I thought Lester was really good for the half … I thought he was fine. Nothing outstanding. He gave me very unfair questions at...

    Video analysis of Presidential Debate #1 raises uncomfortable questions about the moderator role, much as questions have been raised about Hillary's email server. Hillary might have been using hand signals to indicate debate junctures where Hillary saw chances to use pre-memorized debate zingers. Other signals seem to prompt Holt to abruptly break in and contest certain claims advanced by Trump. The video will put Freepers in a mindset optimized to be on-guard against similar tactics in Debates 2 and 3.

    At least we know Trump wasn’t lying when he said he didn't practice for the debate. Based on the behavior of trained, professional journalists, I gather I'm not supposed to say what I really thought of the debate, but to cheer like a pom-pom girl for my candidate. But the truth is, I -- along with my Trump-supporting friends -- thought it was a draw: Trump won the first half, and Hillary won the second half. Since most people stopped paying attention after the first 30 minutes, that's a win for Trump.

After Hillary, in the debate, “cleaned his clock” and “wiped the floor” with him, Mika suggested that Trump might want to “bow down” in acknowledgement of the strength of women.

    Perhaps Donald Trump should coin a phrase, “doing the jobs that the American press won’t do.” The first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has come and gone. So who won? That’s a harder question to answer than “who lost?” The loser in this case was journalistic integrity. The “performance” by so-called moderator Lester Holt could be likened to that of the interfering third party in a pro wrestling event. Anytime Trump was pounding away on Hillary, Lester Holt was there to jump in the ring and hit Trump over the head with a metaphorical chair or other...

    NBC News’ Lester Holt had his “Candy Crowley” moment at the first debate of the 2016 presidential election on Monday night, bowing to pressure from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the liberal media by “fact-checking” Republican nominee Donald Trump on the question of his support for the Iraq War. Holt lived up to the expectations of his peers. But he lived down to the worst expectations of conservatives, who routinely see Republican candidates treated unfairly by debate moderators. Again and again, Holt asked Trump tough questions that were straight from the Clinton campaign’s talking points, and which were obvious set-ups...

In total, 62 per cent of viewers thought Clinton won the debate, which covered topics such as fighting Islamic State and dealing with race relations in America. Surprisingly, only 27 per cent of debate watchers felt Trump’s performance was the most impressive. However, the CNN/ORC poll of viewers who watched the debate from home is understood to include more Democrats than Republicans, which is not a...

Hillary, with forced smiles as brittle as china and an eerie fake laugh, continued her primary debate strategy of repeating canned talking points while waiting for the moderator to knock off her opponent. Hillary wasn't there to debate, but to once again seem like the only possible option. Holt's job was to make her seem like the only possible option by targeting Trump. There were fears that Lester Holt would be another Candy Crowley. That was unfair to Crowley. The entire debate...

The Commission on Presidential Debates sent out a message to news organizations Thursday banning moderators from wearing earpieces, Page Six has learned. Holt’s NBC colleague Matt Lauer wore an earpiece when he interviewed presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on his Sept. 7 “Commander-in-Chief Forum,” which left many criticizing the veteran “Today” anchor’s interviewing skills and judgment.

It will be one-hour forum where Clinton and Trump will answer questions about national security, military affairs and veterans issues in front of an audience mainly made up of members of the military. The two candidates will not be on the stage at the same time, but will instead go back to back. It’s worth nothing that Lauer is listed as a “notable past member” on the Clinton Global Initiative’s website...

I don’t think that makes anyone...

    “In light of Wright State University’s announcement of earlier today, the September 26, 2016 Presidential Debate will be held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.

On September 23, 2015, the Commission announced that Hofstra University had agreed to serve as an alternate site this debate cycle if needed. The Commission looks forward to working with Hofstra once again.”

    Watch the video of the interview. On "The O'Reilly Factor tonight, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz reacted to reports that former President George W. Bush doesn't like him.

    Like bouts of the winter flu many of us knew it was coming before it hit. The character assassinations of the current leaders of the 16 going for RNC nomination was as vicious as CNN bragged it would be. What good for long-suffering Americans is a televised presidential debate where the candidates are deliberately set up to squabble; to go after each other’s throats. when it’s the throats of those would-be Democrat opponents destroying the Constitution they should be going after? CNN’s overrated Jake Tapper bringing out the Rosie O’Donnell in candidates vying against each other for the Republican blessing...

    Mr Curmudgeon:During the third and final presidential debate held in Boca Raton, Florida, conservative columnist Ann Coulter Tweeted, "I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard." Many among the media elite were highly offended that Coulter would use 'retard' to describe the man they consider the savior of America - President Barack Hussein Obama.Mitt Romney, who bested the president in the three-game series - as evidenced by his post-debate rise in the polls - proved to the American people, if not the media, he is knowledgeable and, more importantly, the only serious candidate of...

    Call it "postjudice,"or the making of a decision after examining gobs of evidence. I could not watch President Obama speak so peevishly and snarkily last night without also remembering so many of his cold and inhumane decisions, like voting as an Illinois  Senator to allow newborn babies, which escaped the abortionist's deadly scalpel, to lay until dead in the back room of a hospital's baby delivery room. I could not unremember him referring to the brutal rape and torture of ambassador Stevens as a "bump in the road," instigated by a "hateful anti Moslem video." Where were you, Mitt, on that one?  I could...
