Lester Holt was an absolute embarrassment to the debate moderation profession.  At times it seemed as if Trump was debating Holt and Hilary.  I have to believe even Donna Brazile was blushing on Lester’s behalf.  – Investment Research Dynamics

The only winners in last night’s debate were Trump and Clinton. Win or lose, Trump is getting free advertising for his business organization. He may not be spending much on his campaign, but he’s getting $10’s of millions worth of free corporate promotion.

Hillary win or lose is getting a “Get Out of Free Jail” pass for the numerous felonies she’s committed, some of which are punishable by death. If she loses, Obama will undoubtedly hand her a blanket pardon. How do we know? Because Hillary’s capos have already received pardons.

The losers last night were American public. Notwithstanding the fact that 99% of the viewers skipped Monday Night Football and were watching to see whether or not Hillary would pass out again, neither candidate offered any definable ideas for preventing what is now the inevitable collapse of the United States.

Instead, the debate for the most part circled around whether or not Trump pays taxes or supported the original Iraq war. Trump never did press the issue of the Hillary’s 33,000 deleted emails after referencing them in response to her boorish request for his tax returns – I think we all would like see what’s in those emails:

Perhaps the biggest disgrace and most serious assault on the viewer intelligence is when Hillary Clinton regurgitates the fraudulent Government economic statistics as evidence that the Democratic political agenda has made the country better over the last 8 years. If she truly believes that the unemployment rate is 4.9% then she’s the only person amongst everyone watching who buys into that insidious lie. More likely whe’s using that fraudulent statistic for the purposes of political expedience. “Let them eat cake, for godsakes.”

The easiest pitchfork for Trump to throw at Hillary on the jobs/economic front is to point out that it was Bill Clinton’s “strong dollar policy” that triggered the massive exodus of U.S.  manufacturing to China.  No one can debate that point.  NOT coincidentally, the policy was pushed hard by Walmart – one Bill’s “Padrinos.”

The easiest step toward job repatriation and a balanced trade deficit would be to eliminate the Fed and let the U.S. dollar drop a lot lower vs every other fiat currency. That’s a no-brainer.  Abolishing the Fed should be Trump’s number one platform because that act in and of itself will begin to fix a lot of problems.

The debate failed on all fronts. What was promoted to be politic’s version of an Ultimate Fighting duel turned out to be the Kindergarten version of “No, YOU have cooties.” Neither candidate is fit for the Presidency.

The three conclusions that can be drawn are:  1)  your vote does not matter;  2)  the time spent watching the debate is regrettably 100 mins of my life that I’ll never get back; and 3) The United State as we know it is doomed.
