TWISTED TOWN HALL: Biden questioners include former Obama speechwriter, top Dem’s wife

Joe Biden is never asked the hard questions, and now we know why

Published

In an uneventful ABC town hall featuring Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Thursday, viewers were left hungry for the answers to some of the toughest questions circulating the election. 

But now it all makes sense. 

Two of the questioners at the town hall had undisclosed ties to high-profile Democrats, including one who previously worked as a speechwriter in the Obama administration, Fox News reports. 

Both presidential candidates participated in simultaneous town halls, scheduled in lieu of the second presidential debate, Trump’s airing on NBC. The ABC town hall was hosted by George Stephanopolous, who was the communications director for the Bill Clinton White House. 

But, if that’s not enough, this should be. 

One of the questioners at the event was Nathan Osburn, a former speechwriter for the Obama White House, specifically working for the Office of Public Affairs at the Commerce Department, according to Fox. 

But, Osburn’s profession was listed as “communications” professional in an on-screen graphic and was introduced by the host as a “Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Democrat.” 

That title barely scratches the surface. 

Osburn, now a Google employee, worked in 2008 on “high-profile media inquiries” for the Obama-Biden campaign, according to the New York Post, and “[h]elped secure and publicize high-profile newspaper endorsement. 

The second questioner, Mieke Haeck was identified by ABC as a physical therapist and described as a first-time voter from State College, Pennsylvania. 

But, Haeck is actually the wife of Ezra Nanes, a high-profile Democrat who ran an unsuccessful 2018 race against Republican state Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, according to Fox. 

Stephanopolous introduced the questioners by claiming some are pro-Biden, some are pro-Trump and some are “still undecided.” 

But, clearly, this wasn’t the case. 

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time Biden has been tied up in a town-hall controversy. 

The Washington Free Beacon reported on October 6 that two attendees at Biden’s NBC town hall were identified as undecided, but had previously been shown on MSNBC as blatant Biden supporters. 

This news only leaves more unanswered questions and concerns. 

Who is protecting Biden, and why?  

And, if Biden can’t answer the tough questions, how will he make the tough decisions if elected on November 3? 

Only time will tell.

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Published

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

Pro-Trump super PAC rebrands to ‘stop Joe’s corruption, socialist agenda, liberalism’

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat. 

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
