If the first presidential debate were baseball then Hillary Clinton should be Pete Rose. She had some good hits, but should be banned for life.

After the first debate, there was a general consensus that Hillary did a really good job and was on her “A” game, but was it because she cheated?

The evidence proves that Hillary had some help on Monday night, but how much is the real question.

We already know that her podium was built in a way that gave the visual impression they were of similar size and stature.

We also know that Donald Trump was fact checked six times by moderator Lester Holt, while Clinton wasn’t fact checked once.

On top of the fact checking, Lester Holt didn’t even ask Hillary a follow-up question, but again asked Trump six follow-ups.

The cheating claims go much deeper than tough questions and podium sizes though.

A Fox News journalist in the Clinton reporter pool noticed something very weird the week before the debate. The journalist identified an NBC staffer delivering a package to Clinton’s campaign manager.

Not too weird right? What if I told you the NBC staffer was dressed in a Fed Ex delivery costume and when the Fox reporter asked about the unusual scene, he was escorted off property. He never saw a Fed Ex truck.

It appears that the campaign received the debate questions early and possibly even worked out a deal with NBC earlier in the month for no follow-up questions.

Hillary had scripted answers for every question with facts and delivered well thought out responses. She also looked down at her notes continuously during her replies.

Now is where it gets even worse.

Some people are even claiming that Hillary gave Lester Holt hand signs when she had a zinger she wanted to deliver based on something Trump said.

She would signal Lester like a third base coach, letting the moderator know when she wanted to steal the show. Watch the video below to see her in action.

Hillary really did do a good job on Monday night, and her confidence and stage presence was possibly all because she cheated.

Another website found nine instances of cheating by Hillary. Despite evidence that she cheated during the debate, she won’t be banned from politics.

The FBI found evidence she broke the law in their investigation into her email, but didn’t arrest her. We doubt she will get in trouble for cheating during a debate.

Do you think Hillary Clinton cheated during the debate? Let us know in the comments below.

GOP Debate

Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, has been fuming CNBC’s handling of Wednesday’s Republican debate. Now? He’s telling NBC, “You’re fired!” from the network’s next scheduled debate on February 26, 2016.

In a strongly-worded letter, Priebus skewered NBC for CNBC’s performance.

He explained that NBC was going to be suspended from hosting any more Republican debates: “The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith… We need to ensure there is not a repeat performance.”

Priebus added: “Before the debate, the candidates were promised an opening question on economic or financial matters. That was not the case… “

And he took umbrage that CNBC asked questions that “were inaccurate or downright offensive…” and “hardly in the spirit of how the debate was billed.”

CNBC was roundly criticized—both during and after the debate—by key Republicans for similar bias.

When CNBC pundit John Harwood came out of the gate with his first question, asking Donald Trump if he was running a “comic book version of a campaign,” it was clear that it was going to be a long night.

The moderators were even criticized on stage, by the candidates. Sen. Ted Cruz eviscerated CNBC for asking “gotcha questions,” like the one asked to Trump, along with other biased questions asked to Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, and John Kasich. And Gov. Chris Christie lost his patience too, when the media asked a long-winded question about fantasy football, rather than other issues that actually matter to the American public.

Priebus, for his part, has been venting about CNBC for days.

“I just can’t tell you how pissed off I am,” he said, in an interview. “It was insanity, just sitting there seething through this thing… These are people who put on a pretty decent show in the morning on CNBC. They did a debate four years ago that was a decent debate. Obviously, we had assurances that it was going to be straight up finance, which is what they do every day. And what was delivered was just nothing but a crap sandwich.”

The RNC is meeting with representatives from each major campaign to discuss how to better structure debates in the future—but it’s clear that NBC won’t be there any time soon.

SNL

Just after Donald Trump announced his run for the White House on June 16, the candidate made a series of speeches that were controversial to say the least – particularly on America’s illegal immigrant problem and all the crime, social safety net costs and lost jobs associated with it.

When Trump was asked about how he would solve the nation’s illegal immigration problem, he led with his promise to build a steel reinforced concrete wall along every inch of the border with doors to let good people in and bad people out – something he affirmed again and again, without apology, and that he would make Mexico pay for it.

Trump’s message is simple – enforce the law.

With illegal aliens moving unchecked around the country… with rape, murder and other violent crimes at the hands of illegal immigrants on the rise… with the costs of supporting illegals through already broken social safety net programs… and unemployment rates that have hit black Americans particularly hard, Trump said he would enforce the law.

He would keep criminal aliens behind bars, crack down on businesses that hired illegals, cleanse the welfare rolls that draw illegal immigrants into the country, repeal the “anchor baby” loop hole that allows illegals to stay in the U.S. and crack down on “Sanctuary Cities” that provide safe harbor against deportation by the federal government.

For saying he will enforce the immigration laws already on the books, the professional Hispanic grievance industry – led by the National Council of La Raza – has called him a racist.

In the immediate aftermath of his comments, NBC said it had fired Donald Trump from The Celebrity Apprentice – something Trump denies because he quit the show to run for president. NBC also severed its relationship with Trump’s Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.

Having scored a pyrrhic victory against Trump, Hispanic groups celebrated – until NBC stole their victory by asking Trump to host the coming November 7 episode of “Saturday Night Live” – one of the most prestigious gigs in show business.

Following the announcement, Latino groups demanded that NBC to disinvite Trump as an SNL host saying his “inflammatory” remarks about illegal immigrants when he announced his White House run made him unfit for decent company.

Meredith Blake, writing for the LA Times, reported the reaction from Hispanic groups saying:

“We are appalled that you would enable Trump’s hateful speech for nothing [more] than a ratings ploy,” the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, a coalition of 40 civil rights and policy organizations, said in a letter to “SNL” executive producer Lorne Michaels and NBCUniversal Chief Executive Stephen Burke.

“There’s no question that this issue has struck a nerve in the Latino community and beyond, and there is growing energy and intensity,” said Janet Murguía, president of the National Council of La Raza, a Latino advocacy organization.

What they couldn’t offer NBC in return for dumping Trump was the ratings bonanza NBC expects to harvest from Trump’s appearance in a business where audience reach is king.

When Trump appeared on NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on September 11, the show got its best Friday night ratings in 18 months. A few weeks later, Trump generated the biggest audience for CBS’ “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” since its September 8 premiere.

While these other media appearances drew little controversy, Trump’s coming “Saturday Night Live” appearance has sparked anger because critics say it is nothing more than a “cynical ratings ploy” that could benefit his political campaign and potentially validate his views on immigration.

“‘SNL’ has become one of the most highly coveted platforms for candidates looking to connect with the American public,” Murguía said. “It’s appalling for a show to showcase a man whose campaign has been built on bigotry and demagoguery for the sake of buzz and ratings.”
