Tonight is the last tug of war speeches debate between the two nominees of their respective parties. One of them should have never been there but managed to wreck our country further, and the other one still wants an Obama-Biden revival.
He shouldn’t be there either.
But we got outnumbered. We know Bernie would have ripped Trump up and down on the pandemic alone and finished him there.
Lots of new #Debates2020 rules tonight. Mics will be muted during the two-minute opening remarks by the candidates at the start of each 15-minute segment of the debate. Can Donald Trump avoid interrupting Joe Biden for two minutes? If you know Trump, you know that’s a tall order.
So the debate moderator at the debate site of Belmont University, Nashville, is Kristen Welker of NBC News. There will be 6 topics, and they are as follows:
Race in America
Hmmm, let’s see. Except for maybe topic number 2, in which both candidates have family members who have benefitted from political ties to them, Trump will either take the Amy Barrett approach, and change the subject, or we will see “the best ever” answers. Biden will be able to speak to Fighting COVID and National Security at least. The rest– whatever their consultants may prep them for.
The moderator will not have control of the microphone, so it’s not exactly clear who will be muting it.
The debate will be 9-10:30 PM EDT on ABC · CBS · NBC · PBS
Stream: C-SPAN on YouTube · CBSN · CNNgo · Fox News Go · USA Today BBC News on YouTube TV
Apps: CBS News App · Fox News App · NBC News
Guess it’s time for popcorn and plenty of water to chase those cocktails/beers. Benny’s Bar is open, place an order.

You can treat this as an open thread. Fun tweets, snarks, news, and jibber-jabber. Floor is yours.
In fact, the U.S. is currently on a path away from that green dream. Bigly. The Trump Administration is in the process of finalizing the country’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement. (It will shortly become the only one in the world that contributes more than 2 percent of global emissions without being a member of the landmark climate pact). Emissions have been on the rise again after years of incremental dips — slowed this year only because of a deadly pandemic. And the nation’s most vulnerable communities are routinely forced to reckon with environmental contaminants, extreme weather, and industrial pollution.
Climate change could tip the scales in these 6 toss-up House races The issue — and, frankly, the world — is hotter than in any previous election cycle. If a couple of intrepid aliens dropped by to observe a Congressional hearing on climate change, knowing that humanity’s survival hinged on finding a solution to rising temperatures, they would hurry back to their home planet under the impression that Earth was doomed.
It doesn’t have to be this way. That green dream could be a reality — and for the most part, we know what we need to do to bring it to life.
Below, you’ll learn about eight tools lawmakers could leverage to make America great on climate change. These are interventions that already exist, and concern everything from your home to your local transportation system.
All we need to do is reach out and grab them.
