How do we assess the Debate in the Next Few Days



By Don Jans

The fallout on Fox will be assessed not by what people say about Chris Wallace, Chris Wallace has never hidden that he is intellectually challenged, is what people would refer to as a moderate Democrat, and has always been a never-Trump advocate, but will be reflected in their numbers generated by those other than the big three, Tucker, Hannity, and Laura. Chris Wallace will simply be taken even less seriously.

So far as the candidates are concerned, we will be able to judge the results, not on the polls because polls have become more political tools than honest attempts to predict results, but on the size and enthusiasm of crowds. President Trump will be holding his rallies. You can assess the result based on the rallies maintaining their size and increasing their enthusiasm, especially when President Trump refers to Hunter, the Green New Deal, and ANTIFA being only an “idea” and not a terrorist organization whose goal is to “fundamentally transform the United States,” per one of their Comrades, Obama.

We can assess Biden’s results as good or poor depending on whether or not anybody shows with any enthusiasm on his train trip from Cleveland back to Delaware. We can assess the result as good for Biden if his campaign determines to bring Biden out of the basement and put him on the road in front of people and giving the press open access.

The results will be very positive for Trump and negative for Biden if Hunter becomes an issue, if the Green New Deal becomes an issue, if packing the court becomes an issue, if Medicare for all becomes an issue, and if law and order maintains the same attention or the attention on law and order is increased. If all or any of these become an issue it will be negative for Biden.

If the mainstream media and the DNC are able to neutralize the above issues, it will benefit Biden. However, we must understand that the most damaging factor for Biden is the enthusiasm factor. This is what must be observed. Biden has no charisma. Biden needs his base. The question is, who is Biden’s base or does Biden have a base. If Biden considers his base to be the Bernie Sanders and AOC supporters, he did nothing to increase their enthusiasm, but much to drive them away.

Biden also took the opposite positions on many issues from his or his handlers handpicked vice president candidate, Harris. It will be interesting to watch how Harris handles these questions, if she is allowed to take questions form the press or individuals who would ask these questions.

Don Jans is a national acclaimed author and speaker.  He is also a lifelong student of history, with a special emphasis on Russian history.  His study of Russian history led to 1917 which led to the study of the teachings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.  Don has written five books on the topic of Collectivism (Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Progressivism). 

Don has been a guest on numerous nationally and regionally broadcast radio programs.  He is a weekly guest on a nationally broadcast radio program where he discusses collectivism and how it is impacting the United States, relating current happenings to the collectivist agenda.

Don has spoken to numerous groups across the nation on the topic of who and what is the United States and who and what is collectivism. The collectivist movement has called for a transformation of the United States. What is critical for all to understand is what is the transformation; what are we now and into what will we be transformed.  

Don’s speaking approach is the same as his writing approach, and that is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness. 

Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom.
