Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, John Kasich and Raphael Cruz Will Appear on CNN Presidential Forum…

Donald Trump, Raphael “Ted” Cruz, Hillary Clinton and John Kasich will all appear on a live CNN presidential forum next Monday evening.  Bernie Sanders will also appear via a remote feed from the campaign trail.

Fox vs. CNN NewsCNN is hosting a three-hour candidate forum with Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer in Washington DC.   Each candidate interview will be conducted separately, so they will not be debating each other.  All of them, sans Sanders, are in town for the pro-Israel AIPAC conference.

The event appears to be a rather significant ratings victory for CNN because Fox News tried to host a GOP presidential debate but failed miserably due to poor timing overlap with the AIPAC conference and planned speeches.   Donald Trump declined the Fox debate due to scheduling conflict with AIPAC and in turn Kasich backed away in response to Trump’s decision.

This forum event by CNN is a rather large poke in the eye to their competitor Fox News.

However, the event does not come without some potential issues.  The last time CNN conducted a GOP Town Hall, they planted questioners in the crowd with a transparently specific intent to target Donald Trump.

The framing of media narratives, in opposition to those candidates they do not support, is is a familiar pattern for CNN specifically.  Their corporate ownership, production staff, and directors of content for CNN have a very well known history of subject manipulation.  Previous examples include:

FIRST EXAMPLE – CNN Busted using Jeb Bush Staffer in New Hampshire (Production team Jeanne Moos):

SECOND EXAMPLE – CNN Plants two lobbyists in the audience with pre-planned questions directed to target Trump over “Tone”, and “George Bush”.

THIRD EXAMPLE –  CNN Nancy Grace and Ashleigh Banfield are standing mere feet away from each other during a live broadcast and yet acting as if they are in totally different towns during a broadcast discussing the Cleveland Kidnapping.

Whoops: Nancy Grace and Ashleigh Banfield were standing no more than 30 feet away from one another while CNN producers manipulated the footage to give the appearance of a satellite interview

FULL STORY HERE

LAST EXAMPLE –  In perhaps the most stunning admission of media manipulation, CNN Emmy Winning Reporter/Producer, Amber Lyon, goes on record admitting CNN is paid to create content by U.S. State Department and other governmental agencies.

FULL STORY HERE

So there is always a risk for any politician (who holds adverse interests to the CNN and globalist agenda) to go on their broadcast television shows and attempt to communicate with the larger U.S. electorate.

Much of the manipulation is subtle.  It might be optics, it might be specific wording, it might be adversarial narrative injection or structured confrontation, but generally the CNN angle is to push a more progressive globalist view into the U.S. psyche via manipulation of ideological content.

Trump’s willingness to engage in this known adversarial battle-space with CNN is also evidence of how far askew the Wall Street/Corporate agenda alignment of Fox News has become.  CNN’s approach is more open and transparent.  Fox is more deceptive, cunning and dangerous.  However, the larger corporatist goals of both agents are identical

          I have been appalled and a little devastated to learn how corrupted and infested the government and media are with people whose main goal is to destroy everything good for which the US stands. Using lies, deception, propaganda, and outright chicanery to achieve their nefarious goals. I must confess I’m tearing up a little just writing this.

          I’ve read a few articles this afternoon about all the Republicans who adamantly refuse to support Trump – they state openly they will vote for Hillary – Hillary! What is wrong with these people???? They would rather secure the destruction of our sovereignty, our uniqueness, our freedom, our very existence as a Country because they think Trump would destroy their precious political party! WTF? Political parties are not even necessary for the function of our government! We would get along just fine without them by treating our elected officials as a employees in a job instead of leaders who tell us what to think and do. A job where we fire these people when they lie to us, when they break their promises, when they refuse to do what they were created to do – serve, obey, and be loyal to only the People!

          • Yes I figured this out 2 years ago when I left the party of which I was deep in. I knew there was major wrong when NEWT did not win Fl but Romney did. The GOP and Romney spent $40 million in lying ads against him and he did not have the money to fight back.. I knew then I wanted out but had a Rep. club I worried about. Solution..before I left we decided to become a non partisan club –Constitution Club of Tampa Bay. Then I left and went to the Libertarian party. I was immediately the treasurer of the party. But hen I saw too many that were too liberal , so when TRUMP jumped into the race I knew hI had to change back( never going to a party meeting again but just for TRUMP to vote in a closed primary). I will get out after, but I may try to go for a delegate just to be able to vote for TRUMP. I will NOT go to the meeting where they pick in my county as they have always been corrupt. But I will go to another country of which my Congressman serves and see. Wish me luck, as I would have to pay a lot of things, plus plane fair and hotel, etc. in Cleveland. But to vote for TRUMP would be worth. I will probably try the Constitution party as it goes well with my club but I don’t like their idea of flat tax as I have a few rentals and everyone would dump them on the market if that tax was done. Then the real estate market would be ruined. TRUMP s tax plan is excellent. We must have TRUMP or this country is over with one world govt., or a bloody revolution. Sad t think of either. God bless America and God bless Trump.

        Yeah, Fox must be fuming at this coup by CNN. I can’t wait to see the ratings numbers when they come out. Fox has brought it all on themselves with their very apparent turn to the left and their obvious dislike of Trump. Dana Perino was the first to let the Trump hate out of the Fox bag and I happened to see her live when she did it. After that, came Megyn Kelly’s performance at the first debate. It’s been all down hill since then. The dumb part is they kept this running feud going, hoping for ratings boosts I guess, but all they’re getting is a big black eye and loss of viewership. So I’m glad for CNN even though I am not crazy about their leftist ways either. Tapper and Cooper have been pretty good though, to my surprise.

        Yes, there is something bizarre about Megyn’s evolving. I used to like her, was glad when she got her own show, and then she wasn’t the nice and smart person she had been. Stopped watching her show long before August, but we tuned in at that August debate because we thought, “finally, FOX will treat the candidates fairly.” Fooled that’s for sure. That debate debacle matches Candy Crowley’s interference in a Presidential Debate – both infamous for all time. And where is Candy now, not on CNN anymore…

        Now Megyn has changed her looks so much she almost a caricature of her former self, and she isn’t pretty or even attractive. The coldness in her gaunt face does nothing for her, and her nose couldn’t be much more snooty. What she should really do is read the “The Portrait of Dorian Gray.”

    CNN Fake Newscast

    “Charles Jaco was the CNN reporter famous for covering the 1990 Persian Gulf War.

    The first part of this video shows the stage set he was on, and he was clowning around with fellow CNN staff. The Saudi Arabian “hotel” in the background were fake palm trees and a blue wall in a studio. This clip was leaked by CNN staff.

    The second part of this video was a live CNN satellite feed recorded onto VHS showing the final cut. Charles Jaco was wearing a different jacket, but he had the same act. The acting was terrible as Charles Jaco wore a gas mask, and his fellow correspondent Carl Rochelle wore a helmet. The sirens and missile sound effects are part of the stage set. The camera never pans out or shows the sky.”

  19. I think back now to that video clip posted on one of the threads here a while ago of the “Lion Speech” and would love to see it reposted. Trump is at the point of “getting up and tearing the s### out of all of them”, enough is enough. Seems to be in stealth mode now, which means something big is coming. The man is a warrior, a prayer answered.

    Ya know, I stumbled across a TV that had HLN on earlier today, Arpaio was being interviewed by some gal over Sanders’ wife recent visit to his tent city. Towards the end of the thing she asked him to discuss a comment he made, something along the lines of there’s not enough people in jail. Now that is an obviously open statement that needs context to understand. But Arpaio didn’t answer – he indicated her audio was coming through weak. She repeated the question a couple more times, slowly and reworded and each time you could tell he was straining to hear, picking up part of the question but not enough to get the entire message. Finally he had enough of that and went back to one of his talking points. The interview wrapped up shortly after.

    As soon as he indicated he was having trouble hearing her I immediately thought to myself, “That’s shenanigans. They lowered the volume to make it appear as if he didn’t want to answer that question.”. There was no indication of audio issues prior to that point and you could tell he was grasping for what was coming though. It became readily apparent after a few more tries what sort of optic they were pushing. What dirty little rats. I wonder if they’ll keep that subtle or if we’ll see a headline reading ‘Sheriff Joe Fakes Audio Woes to Avoid Discussing Own Comments” shortly.

      The only thing that matters for Sheriff Joe is if the people of Maricopa County support him. Arizona loves the man, and they’ve loved him since way before he started in on the illegal immigration issue. He’s not a national-level official so why should he worry about what a national level news organization tries to portray him as?

        Tarnishing Trump’s image. He’s pretty much endorsing Trump, so if they can slander him to the sheeple it will lend discredit to his campaign. Maybe I’m reaching and I doubt Joe is worried but it’s just another poke I’ve gotten used to seeing.

        I saw a clip of Bernie earlier, and he was slamming Sheriff Joe. Somehow he must have “insulted” his wife.

        He was making comments about Joe at a rally, and starts talking trash about him, and then says, “when I’m president, I’ll ‘take care’ of people like him.”

        Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? He’s an elected official you freaking freak!

        Oh I’m started to feel the Bern alright, burning anger!

        But I do think Sherrif joe somehow managed the lovely Mrs. Bern–you know social justice BS–bc I just saw an interview clip from a local AZ. Station. The guy was asking Bernie about her visit to “tent city,” and Bernie got indignant and literally stopped the interview.

        It’s over WeaselZippers.

    • Don’t worry. Sheriff Joe is a LEGEND with the majority of the people of Arizona. If any interview shows him in a bad light the people of AZ who like him will find that offensive. Arizona has a LOT of retirees and older folks who adore Sheriff Joe and they won’t be swayed.

  24. What is this? A forum the day before AZ & UT primaries? What is this, Affirmative Action for Loser Presidential Candidates?

    Why on EARTH would Kasich get a forum? He cannot win mathematically and if he will only be representing, promoting and legitimizing a BROKERED CONVENTION!

    How much limelight does Trump have to share with these losers? Kasich isn’t on a par with Trump and Cruz; and Cruz isn’t on a par with Trump. Yet this whole thing puts them on some kind of equal paring. AND THE NIGHT BEFORE ARIZONA & UTAH primary elections?

    Networks are just trying to give more advertising to Kasich and Cruz. IMO it would be better to starve Kasich and Cruz out. People are already losing interest in them and forgetting them. They cannot win and their candidacies are FRAUDS.

        That’s exactly the case. Every delegate Kasich gets is most likely one that would have gone to Cruz instead, and his presence cuts into Cruz’s vote totals in the massive Winner-Take-All states coming up. Kasich winning OH is a Pyrrhic victory in that it encouraged him to stay in the race and split votes in a situation where he literally CANNOT mathematically win the nom.

      Cruz is not on par with Trump. He just keeps insisting he is by attaching his name to Trumps

      Cruz needs 87% of delegate winnings to get magic number. He cant get that. To continue is in hopes to take nomination away the majority vote to keep Elite controlling party, country, and president is so wrong and undermining. An annointed one would not have to manipulate the win, ya would think.

    Maybe Hilary can talk to this little gem at the forum (!!!!!):

    Hillary Tells Arizona Voters: “We’ve Done A Really Good Job Securing The Border

    Actually, Hillary is correct on this one:

    The NY-NJ border has been very quiet lately.

    And no major incidents to report on the Connecticut border, either.

    Via Mediaite:

    Hillary Clinton said in an interview with an Arizona radio station… that border security isn’t as big an issue as Republicans have made it out to be….
    On the question of border security, Clinton said, “I think we’ve done a really good job securing the border. I think that those who say we haven’t are not paying attention to everything that was done the last 15 years under President Bush and President Obama.”
    She pointed to the increase in border security officers and how “immigration from Mexico has dropped considerably, it’s just not happening anymore.”

        I keep popping up because I live in So Cal right near the border. I know lots of people who work around it and it’s very active there right now..VERY. The desert is perfect weather for crossing 80 to 90 degrees. The cartels own the border not us. They traffick the human cargo and the huge amount ..tons.. of drugs . They use the people for decoys for slipping the drugs in. They just blast across in 4 wheel drive trucks un load and run back. It’s like a play. They catch a little bit of it up the road but maybe 10%. most seizures are heroin and meth. Lots Tons mucho….. They run right up the back roads to La Freeway and home free.Let Hillary know if you see her…… Ask her about Arizona too.

    Trump knows exactly how CNN does their town halls—the SC one he weathered well, in spite of the audience plants, and in the final segment he showed his more personal side (talking about being a better father than he was a husband etc,) He likely won some voters with that. He got all 50 SC delegates, after all!

    …Republicans, including Donald Trump, lambasted the White House and accused President Barack Obama of weakness in the face of Iranian aggression.
    “Those young people were on their hands and knees in a begging position with their hands up and thugs behind them with guns, and then we talk like it’s OK. It’s not OK. It’s lack of respect,” Mr Trump said.

I could explain it more fully than he does and I am just someone who reads a lot. I think he assumes that people understand certain basic things, which most do but they use their feigned a ignorance against him but there are others that honestly don’t understand…things like ED and chapter 11 etc. and it would be helpful it he would flesh that stuff out a little

    Trump is pullng voters from across the spectrum. The biggest untapped source of these voters are the typical left of center voters watching CNN. There are plenty of old schools conservative Democrats, as well as new voters, with whom Trump needs to connect — and wants to connect — and to do so he has to go into the lion’s den. FOX’s shameless self-importance as the arbiter of what’s conservative or not is a dead end for pulling voters. Let Trump be Trump.
