The moderators are ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, David Muir, Linsey Davis and Univision’s Jorge Ramos.
The debate is taking place at Texas Southern University, and the ten participating candidates are: ♦Former VP Joe Biden; ♦Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; ♦Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey; ♦South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg; ♦former Housing Secretary Julian Castro; ♦Senator Kamala Harris of California; ♦Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; ♦former Reresentative Robert “Beto” O’Rourke of Texas; ♦Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont; and ♦entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
A clear example of a candidate who will lie. During a campaign event Kamala Harris was asked by an audience member (with a microphone): “what are you going to do in the next one year to diminish the mentally retarded action of this guy”?
In response to the question a laughing Senator Harris replied: “well said, well said.”
However, today, facing backlash from the term “mentally retarded“, candidate Harris claims she did not hear the words he used in the question. You decide.
Democrat president candidate Elizabeth Warren has made a campaign promise that is quite remarkable:
The consequences of such policy are not esoteric; they are very real and very serious. Who would immediately benefit from Warren’s policy: Russia, China, Iran and Venezuela. Who would suffer, Americans. Here’s how…
Within the first 24 hours of Elizabeth Warren’s presidency she is promising to dramatically raise the price of Oil and Natural Gas. This will:
- Immediately hand Vladimir Putin hundreds of billions worth of enhanced Russian energy exports. A windfall of economic growth that will mean Russian policy expansion globally.
- Support the regime of Venezuelan dictator Maduro who relies on oil production and pricing to keep his socialist government in place.
- Expand the influence of China; and increase the value of Beijing’s investments in Russian energy and 49% state in PDVSA (Venezuela).
- Immediately help the Iranian economy; enhance the stranglehold of power by the Mullah’s over the Iranian people; help fund terrorist actions globally, and specifically create terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya and Israel.
- Return U.S. policy and strategy back to a position of dependence on OPEC nations; so we can expect more U.S. military involvement in the middle-east (as above).
- Destroy growth in American wages , and set up energy policy that will drive further industrial manufacturing out of the U.S. and into Mexico and Asia.
- Simultaneously drive up the price of electricity in the U.S, further exacerbating the financial costs and losses to the U.S. middle-class.
- Raise gas prices back to Obama-era rates $5/gal.
- In turn this will drive up the cost of transported products, and U.S. food prices will jump approximately 20% as massive inflation hits highly-consumable categories first.
- The collective impact of the four domestic points above will drive down the ability of consumers to spend on other goods. The U.S. economy is two-thirds dependent on consumer spending…. The collective impact means economic contraction.
Candidate Elizabeth Warren is promising to deliver these results in the first 24 hours of her administration if she was to win the presidency.
Senator Elizabeth Warren has never worked in the private sector; nor has she created anything that is materially not connected to government expansion. She is proposing policy without any comprehension of downstream impact on a domestic, international, geopolitical or national security basis.
Senator Warren promises these impacts in her first 24 hours in office.
Think very carefully about it….

Less than four hours after asking for donations to reach the debate stage threshold, democrat presidential candidate, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, quit the race:
Today, I am ending my campaign for president. I am so proud of this team and all we’ve accomplished. But I think it’s important to know how you can best serve.
The outline of primary support at the end of August is traditionally how the voting ends up during the first primaries the following year. Biden, Sanders, Warren and Harris look to be the only viable candidates. The challenge now becomes keeping the existing support.
(Via Emerson) […] Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson Polling, points out that “Mayor Pete Buttigieg has seen his poll numbers drop all summer and is now at 3%, behind Andrew Yang who is at 4%. Mayor Pete has raised enough money to stay in the race for now but will need a strong debate performance to remain relevant.”
There continues to be a large age divide in the democratic primary with Sanders receiving 36% support of those under the age of 50 compared to 11% support among those 50 and over. Biden, on the other hand, has the support of 21% of those under 50 and 44% of those 50 and over. Warren’s support is more consistent as she is at 14% with voters under 50 and 17% with voters 50 and over. And Harris is at 8% among under 50 year olds and 12% among those 50 and up. (read more)
Against a backdrop where people are beginning to questions the cognitive capabilities of the former Vice-President, and current democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden; the candidate tells a campaign audience he was “not going nuts“…. WATCH:
This latest “I’m not nuts” campaign slogan might explain the recent Monmouth University Poll which shows a massive collapse of support for the former VP.
Monmouth – The poll finds a virtual three-way tie among Sanders (20%), Warren (20%), and Biden (19%) in the presidential nomination preferences of registered Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters across the country.
Compared to Monmouth’s June poll, these results represent an increase in support for both Sanders (up from 14%) and Warren (up from 15%), and a significant drop for Biden (down from 32%).
Biden has suffered an across the board decline in his support since June. He lost ground with white Democrats (from 32% to 18%) and voters of color (from 33% to 19%), among voters without a college degree (from 35% to 18%) and college graduates (from 28% to 20%), with both men (from 38% to 24%) and women (from 29% to 16%), and among voters under 50 years old (from 21% to 6%) as well as voters aged 50 and over (from 42% to 33%).
Most of Biden’s lost support in these groups shifted almost equally toward Sanders and Warren. (read more)
