Debate: "Strong" Trump vs. "Well Prepared," but "Weak" Biden

The best analysis of the debate was from the American Catholic which described Joe Biden "as well prepared," but "weak and defensive." President Donald Trump was "strong" which reflected in his approval by Latinos who like "strong leaders":

  1.  Biden was well prepared with canned responses, but visibly tired as the debate wore on.
  2.  Chris Wallace was a hapless moderator who seemed to think his main role was to protect Biden from Trump.
  3. Trump’s goal was to constantly be on the attack.  Mission accomplished.
  4. Biden came across weak and defensive.
  5. Trump came across as Trump.  Few converts made but stirred up the base.
  6. Trump scored on the economy and got Biden to admit that he is opposed to the Green New Deal.  That will hurt Biden among already suspicious Leftist voters.  Law enforcement was another winner for Trump.  Trump drew blood on Hunter Biden, and Biden simply has no defense.
  7. Biden drew blood on Trump’s taxes.
  8. Debate reaction is mixed, but quite a few on the Left seem dismayed by Biden’s performance.  People see Trump every day.  These debates will be the only time the voters see Biden live, and last night they saw a defensive old man being verbally beaten up by Trump.
  9. The snap poll by Telemundo, see above, is bad news for team Biden.  Hispanics like, as a generalization, strong leaders and Biden projected weakness, not strength.
  10. The Kennedy-Nixon debates, as a contrast to the spectacle last night, six decades ago, shows the degradation that our public culture has undergone in a fairly short period of time. [https://the-american-catholic.com/2020/09/30/thoughts-on-the-first-debate/]

The debate showed a "weak" Biden who was left silent and wordless when President Trump asked him to name one police law enforcement organization that supported his ticket's apparent backhanded support of violent Black Live Matters rioting and demands for defunding the police.

Newsweek reported that "66 percent of [its Spanish-speaking] participants told Telemundo" that they "believed Trump won the debate" according to a poll:

"While the question of who won Tuesday's presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden lies in the court of public opinion, Spanish-speaking viewers of Telemundo gave their support to Trump."

"Both candidates have campaigned heavily in the Latino community. Trump's campaign has attempted to reel in Latino supporters with his Latinos for Trump initiative. Biden made an appearance at a September Hispanic Heritage Month celebration in Florida. Work by the Trump campaign to attract Latino voters may be paying off."

"In a poll after the debate, 66 percent of participants told Telemundo they believed Trump won the debate. Only 34 percent of poll participants thought Biden made a better showing in Tuesday's debate."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps... [and] hid behind precedent... to prohibit pro-life activists from exercising their free speech ." The Avvo.com lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right. This is why he left the prestigious Yale Law School, whom publicly stated their unwill

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
