Mark Levin Weighs In On Debate, Says Biden Tried To Use ‘Same Stunts’ Used On Paul Ryan In 2012, But Trump Shut It Down

Published

on

Fox News host Mark Levin took to Facebook Tuesday evening to share his thoughts on the first presidential debate, which was super heated, explosive, and extremely chaotic. Both candidates came out swinging, though President Trump was clearly more aggressive and a whole lot harder hitting.

Levin noted that former Vice President Biden used a lot of the same tactics he tried against Paul Ryan in the 2012 debate, but Trump “would have none of it.”

Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire:

Levin recalled the vice-presidential debate between Biden and Ryan, in which Ryan ignored Biden’s histrionics and eschewed harshly attacking him, writing, “Biden pulled the same stunts on the president as he pulled on Paul Ryan eight years earlier, but Trump would have none of it. Biden was making faces, rolling his eyes, interrupting the president with laughs and jabs, and was long-winded, which the moderator allowed to a ridiculous level.”

Levin opined that fellow Fox News host and debate moderator Chris Wallace permitted Biden “much longer opportunities uninterrupted by the moderator to speak, which Biden used to hurl one nasty lie after another.” He added that Trump wouldn’t stand for that, as he “is a counter-puncher and often was forced to try to muscle his way in to address Biden’s list of attacks as he wasn’t given opportunities to reply.”

Levin ripped Wallace for exhibiting bias against the president, asserting, “The moderator’s liberal bias was obvious in the nature of many of the questions, as was his dislike of the president when he’d get into arguments with the president over policy while mostly letting Biden get away with whoppers.”

“The moderator knows the governors shut down the economy not the president, the moderator knows the president didn’t kill over 200,000 Americans, the moderator knows Antifa is a real group, the moderator knows that the “science” of man-made climate change is in dispute, etc., but it seemed like none and certainly little of his correcting or challenging was aimed at Biden or, even worse, he’d insert his views into the questioning and follow up,” Levin said. “If he was truly interested in tax returns, why did he ignore Biden’s use of an S-1 corporation to get around paying over half a million dollars in payroll taxes, including Social Security, or mention that the New York Times article itself states that Trump paid approximately $24 million in the alternative minimum tax. If you’re going to bring it up, then get it right.”

Levin went on to note that commentators were far “more critical of the president than Biden,’ then set his sights Biden, saying, “Biden’s strategy was as a disrupter who was prepared with memorized attack lines and falsehoods, which he rattled off like a machine gun. Biden’s handlers figured such a debate — going from hiding in the basement and limiting press availability to a debate brawl — would continue to protect Biden from real scrutiny for his past record and his current embrace of truly extremist policies as set forth in his 110-page manifesto. Biden’s obvious strategy, plus the moderator’s predictable approach, was infuriating.”

Levin is right on the money, especially regarding Chris Wallace. A moderator is to be as impartial and invisible during the debate as possible. Wallace, who promised to be both, did not deliver in that regard. Trump essentially had two debate opponents to contend with and still managed to do a pretty good job.

Let’s hope future debates are more smoothly run and the president is afforded time to provide some substance for the American voters to latch on to.

Wyoming Witness Describes Restaurant Scene Caused by Gabby Petito’s Fiancé

Oh boy…

Published

on

The death of Gabby Petito has been a lengthy, slow-moving tragedy for much of the nation, and there is still some road left to be traveled.

Petito, who was confirmed dead on Tuesday after authorities suggested that they discovered her body over the weekend, went missing while on a cross-country road-trip with fiancé Brian Laundrie.

Just days before her death was confirmed, Laundrie went missing, likely to the Carlton Reserve in central Florida, where authorities are searching still.  The missing man had previously refused to cooperate with law enforcement in Gabby’s disappearance, leading to his being named a person of interest in her disappearance and death.

Those following the case are already aware of an incident in which the two were captured on police body cameras after a domestic dispute – a situation that led many to speculate as to the state of their relationship at the time of her death.

Now, a new incident has come to light, and not far from where Gabby’s body was found.

“I have chills right now,” Nina Celie Angelo told Fox News Digital Wednesday. “It’s crazy because it wasn’t just like we passed them on the street — it was a full blown incident.”

Angelo said she and her boyfriend, Matthew England, were in town for a wedding in late August. They were out to lunch at Merry Piglets, a Tex-Mex restaurant, between 1 and 2 p.m. on Aug. 27, when they said an agitated Laundrie began arguing with a waitress. Four and a half hours later, a travel-blogging couple passed Petito’s van at a campsite north of town.

Angelo, a photographer, said she couldn’t overhear the conversation but that she believed Laundrie was arguing with staff over the bill or about money. She described his body language as “aggressive” and said he left and returned about four times.

At one point, Petito came inside and apologized for Laundrie’s behavior, Angelo said.

Laundrie’s family has garnered quite a bit of criticism from their characterization of Brian as “missing”, as those following the case have suggested that he’s actually on the run.

Petito’s cause of death has not yet been made public.

Swamp Search Intensifies as Missing Influencer Confirmed Dead

Will Brian Laundrie be found in the muck at the bottom of the Carlton Reserve?

Published

on

The parents of Gabriel Petito are in mourning, officially now, as authorities have confirmed that their daughter is now deceased.

Petito’s body was found over the weekend in Bridger-Teton National Forest after an improbable tip by a fellow YouTube vlogger led police to her body, which appeared to have been placed about 900 feet away from where her van was parked.

This is, of course, the same van that her fiancé Brian Laundrie returned to Florida in on September 1st, sparking a national firestorm over his unwillingness to cooperative with authorities investigating her disappearance.

Now, with Petito’s fate confirmed, (and with the coroner calling it a “homicide”), Laundrie remains missing, possibly within the vast and wild Carlton Reserve in Florida.

Search crews headed back to the Carlton Reserve in Venice to look for the 23-year-old on Wednesday morning. Around noon, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office SURF (Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force) team pulled up to the Carlton Reserve as the search continued.

“To confirm, yes, members of our Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force have responded to Carlton Reserve. This in addition to our Emergency Response Team, Air-1 & patrol,” the sheriff’s office tweeted. “SURF Team members are divers called upon to search bodies of water for evidence. These highly-trained deputies work in the most difficult and challenging environments imaginable. They are on call 24/7/365.”

Laundrie’s disappearance has infuriated those who’ve been following the case, especially as his parents refrained from reporting him missing from Tuesday to Friday of last week, giving what some online commenters considered a “head start” to escape.
