Debates Commission Should Change Name to Reflect Left Bias

The "Commissars" on Presidential Debates was created in 1987 and sponsored by both the Republican and Democratic parties. The idea was that since the Commissars had the backing of both parties, candidates would be treated fairly and the respective parties would make sure there was no imbalance in selecting moderators or enforcing the rules.

And just as the sun rises in the east, the non-profit, non-partisan group has been seized by Leftists and now does their bidding.

This happened because the Democrats appointed to the group are interested in using for their own ends, while the cocktail conservatives appointed by the Republicans use the position as a resume builder and a chance to fly to meetings on someone else’s dime.

This year any pretense of only selecting unbiased and impartial moderators has been tossed to the wind. The Commissars are selecting leftist operatives and Trump haters and daring the president to do something about it.

The Trump antagonist selected for the final debate is NBC White House correspondent Kirsten Welker. The New York Post summed the selection up this way, "Kristen Welker, upcoming presidential debate moderator, has deep Democrat ties."

That’s putting it mildly.

The Post found, "Welker comes from an established Democratic family — who have poured cash into party coffers, and to Trump opponents, for years.

"Her mother, Julie Welker, a prominent real estate broker in Philadelphia, and father, Harvey Welker, a consulting engineer, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and close to $20,000 to Barack Obama alone.

"There was also $3,300 for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign and $2,100 for Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential effort against Trump. Another $7,300 was contributed to the Democratic National Committee between 2004 and 2020."

To top it all off, “In 2012, Welker and her family celebrated Christmas at the White House with the Obamas.”

The president is no fool. He observed Welker is "extraordinarily unfair."

"She’s always been terrible & unfair, just like most of the Fake News reporters, but I’ll still play the game."

He will play the game because the president has no choice and the Commissars know he is over a barrel.

Trump must attend this debate because it represents his final opportunity to make his case to the few remaining undecided and swing voters. He’s forced to make his case in a televised toxic stew of bias and partisanship because instead of protecting his interests, the Never–Trumpers appointed to the organizing body have sold him out.

Another routine betrayal of the 63 million people who voted Trump in 2016.

We are not optimistic regarding the result.

We only hope the president will devote more time to preparation and nullifying the baleful impact of the leftist selected as moderator.
