The Push to Get Joe Biden Out of the Presidential Debates Has Begun

Trying to get a free pass.

Published

on

The New York Times published an op-ed dismissing the value of presidential debates on Monday, claiming that the electoral tradition has become little more than “unrevealing quip contests” that resemble professional wrestling for the uneducated rubes.

The op-ed is probably the most prominent attempt to undermine the plans for the events, with author Elizabeth Drew arguing the debates lack substance. She claims that the American public is blissfully unaware that well-known presidential debate moments are meaningless, pointing to Ronald Reagan’s 1980 “there you go again” debate admonition to Jimmy Carter.

Some Democrats have quietly worried about Biden’s prospects in the three contests, and the article may be the most public call to find the candidate a way out of appearing on a debate stage with Donald Trump.

Biden’s plain tendency to become forgetful and exhibit mental gaffes has become a concern, especially considering that some within the Biden campaign have noticed his cognitive issues tend to be most potent in the evenings in which the three debates are currently scheduled in.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the three contests are currently slated to be held without a live audience, precluding any attempts on the part of organizers to stack the university halls in which they’ll be held with a crowd of Biden supporters who hoot and cheer at any remark made by the Democrat. A similar audience format had worked in great effect in the 2012 presidential election, with a progressive crowd serving as in-house fans for Barack Obama in a debate moderated by Candy Crowley.

Biden has agreed to participate in the three traditional debate contests of the presidential election, although he had dismissed an offer from the Trump campaign to conduct even more debates before election, with the latter pointing to reduced campaign presence due to the coronavirus epidemic.

It remains to be seen if the Democratic nominee will abide by his debate commitment.

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol

Order Must be Restored

Published

on

On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests  escalated at the United States Capitol.

The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. 

The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:

The New York Young Republican Club consistently condemned lawlessness and disorder throughout 2020 perpetrated by Radical Left BLM and Antifa activists. We called out the Fake News Media and Democrat politicians who inculcated a culture of acceptance for “mostly peaceful protestors” who violated private property rights and destroyed livelihoods.

Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.

We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.

U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly. 

On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
