Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. ‘Obvious Fascist Dictator’ Bringing Peace to the Middle East

 

The debates should be fun…if they happen.

From Sara Carter:

President Donald Trump has been nominated a second time for the Nobel Peace Prize by Magnus Jacobsson, a Swedish parliamentarian, who submitted his nomination letter on Friday citing a historic deal between Serbia and Kosovo.

“I have nominated the U.S. Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House. Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace,” he wrote.

    Brian Watt: The debates should be fun…if they happen.

    I don’t see how Biden can not debate. Amazingly, some people actually make up their mind who to vote for based on the debates. And if he doesn’t show up, that’ll be really bad for him. Of course, the moderators will all be carrying water for him and all the media coverage afterward will be about how foolish it was for Trump to play up Biden’s frailty since Biden didn’t drop dead on stage on live television.

    The Narrative is that Joe Biden shouldn’t debate President Trump because that would, as Nancy Pelosi says, “normalize” the President’s so-called lies.

    So if Biden doesn’t debate, he will be praised for not “lowering himself” to the level of the President.

    Biden will win if he debates. Even ‘objectively’. It’s just the sort of artificial situation his half-century of public ‘service’ has fitted him for.

    Of course, having the moderators, production crew and press on his side, as well as being pumped full of horse tranquilizer, will help his performance.

    He can’t keep track of what he’s talking about. His presser a couple of weeks ago is a great example. Asked about how to reassure parents whose children either have to go back to school or are “remote learning,” he went on and on about stimulus spending and day care and elder care and nothing at all about schools or the question being asked. It was like he was living out the memory of a half-century ago.

    Even the horse tranquilizer can’t restore the holes in his mind.

    The main reason Biden wears a mask is to keep people from seeing the drool on his chin.

    There will be no debate.

    Unless, of course, Biden actually does drop dead on stage, in which case Putin will have poisoned him to protect “his” guy. Evidence to be invented soonest.

    Sticking to the topic, it should come as no surprise that a man known for negotiating business deals can also negotiate peace deals. The Nevers never understood this about him. Still don’t.

    Trump has announced that Bahrain and Israel are normalizing relations.

    The MSM was back one international agreement. Now they are two back.

    Joe Biden mentioned the President of the USA, and then correctly mentioned his name.

    I’m more impressed than I ought to be.

    Trump’s triumph with UAE-Israel accord has unleashed a ‘preference cascade’ of Middle East peace developments

    A dam has broken and our media are desperate to avert our eyes from it. I am stunned at the succession of positive developments that has followed the announcement almost a month ago that the United Arab Emirates is normalizing relations with Israel. Momentum is accelerating toward the long dreamed-of goal of peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors.

    I have to pinch myself after writing such a thing to remind myself that decade after decade of strenuous effort has failed, frustrating presidents of both parties and stymieing plan after plan put forth by diplomats and NGOs. Yet, improbable as it may seem to the smart set, Donald Trump, denounced as an imminent threat to world peace by almost all the academic, diplomatic, and journalistic elites, may have triggered the process of reconciling the Arab world to peaceful coexistence with Israel.

    At the very least, the post-debate spin will be that Biden ‘won’ even if he pulls the same ‘angry grandpa’ schtick he did with Paul Ryan in 2012. Any show of tactical emotion at all, even 90 minutes of trying to disrupt Trump and dodge actually answering any hard question — will be seen by the media as a sign of both lucidity and the fact that he ‘destroyed Trump at his own game’. If Joe’s handlers can pull that off, that’s when they may try to cancel the final two debates, blaming it on Trump’s behavior, and hope swing voters buy the spin and take that with them to the polling booths.

    It’s sad when, for the second election in a row, the Democrat Party’s most effective strategy is to keep it’s candidate from the public eye as much as possible.

    And the Bee weighs in:

    This in response to the Atlantic’s bizarre justification why Obama deserved the Nobel Peace prize:

    Wood argued that the peace prize is more “subjective” than the other Nobel honors, stating that 1973 winner Henry Kissinger ended and started “many conflicts” and noting that 2009 honoree Barack Obama refused to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il and expanded America’s drone program,

    Obama the King of the Double Tap drone killing spree, of which he bragged that he personally approved each and every drone strike.

    Normalizing relations doesn’t mean these countries have to like each other. It means being at odds with each other theologically, economically, and militarily interrupts normal people who just want to live their lives without the hassle of looking at war on the horizon every day . . .

    I don’t know if the DNC kept Hillary out of view. She seemed to think she was going to win as she had waited for it so long. Secondly, Hillary at that point in time Was the DNC

    Hannity has stated that all she had to do to come on his show was to use Trump’s ploy of simply appearing behind the stage, saying “I’m here. Hope you are willing to have me on tonight.” But she never showed up there.

    Your title reminded me of my frustration at the number of statements that people make about President Trump that they expect to be taken without any evidence of their truth. We have discussed in other threads the unsubstantiated assertions of “fascist,” “bigot,” “racist,” “homophobe,” “liar,” and others. The other day I was listening to a podcast among supposedly conservative commentators, one of whom said something along the lines of, “Of course Trump is an existential threat to the presidency,” yet no one on the podcast challenged the speaker for examples or reasons.

    I’m guessing it was a “conservative” podcast, too.

    That’s what pissed me off most when Tom Nichols was on The Conservatarians. He’d make these really dumb comments about how the President has violated the constitution, and nobody challenged him to explain those comments. They just let it slide as if it were a given.

    A former work associate says similar things about the President being a racist or coming to power with the help of white supremacists. And while this associate acknowledges that the President did call out white supremacists, “he only did it because he was forced to, and he didn’t really mean it.” That’s infuriating, because you can point out how stupid the stupid Charlottesville lie is, and you can give strong evidence that the president is no racist, but . . . they can read his mind.

    I was ready to wait for evidence of “Russian collusion” other than a $150K Facebook ad buy. I’m still wating. Nichols ate up the entire Russian collusion story with a spoon.

    Nichols is a fathead.
