Oz Odds Of Winning PA Soar After Historic Fetterman Debate Meltdown

Published

The Fetterman campaign may have just watched what remained of its prospects in Pennsylvania circle the drain after tonight’s sole debate between him and PA Senate candidate Dr. Oz.

Fetterman, who suffered a severe stroke days before the May primary and cast his vote from a hospital bed, appeared unable to put together nearly a single coherent sentence throughout the entire debate while TV veteran Dr. Oz deftly and “surgically” sliced and diced his way through an hour of questioning, using Fetterman as a lifeless sparring dummy for a majority of the debate. 

Recovering from his stroke, Fetterman’s answers ranged between somewhat inept and completely incomprehensible. The ugly performance started right from the beginning, with Fetterman bidding viewers “good night” as part of his opening statement. 

It only got worse from that point forward. Fetterman was unable to coherently respond to an allegation that he hadn’t paid his taxes:

He was also unable to provide reasoning for not releasing his medical records, which would be of obvious concern due to the fact that he is recovering from a stroke and PA citizens will likely want to know that their Senate candidate is lucid:

Fetterman also seemed to take an inordinate amount of time in grasping and responding to questions as they were asked:

He tried to take several “jabs” at Oz – needless to say that none of them landed:

The disaster culminated in Fetterman attempting to square statements from 2018 where he said he was against Fracking with statements he made in 2022, where he claimed to be pro-fracking. 

His campaign manager similarly had a meltdown in the spin room, dropping the “F” bomb while trying to convince the media that his campaign hadn’t completely melted down. “He took it to Dr. Oz pretty f*cking hard tonight,” he said:

But no amount of spin was able to convince social media that the debate was a success.

“I can’t impress upon you how much of a disaster this debate is… I’ve never seen anything like it. This race is completely and totally over,” said Clay Travis of Clay and Buck. 

Former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of PA William McSwain commented: “That debate was hard to watch. How in the world — in a country of 330 million people — could John Fetterman be in the running for one of a hundred seats in the world’s greatest deliberative body? This is embarrassing.”

“Just so we are all clear: that was Fetterman WITH weeks of prep and specialized computer assistance throughout. So what you just saw is the very, very best Fetterman can do. Which is terrifying,” said Senior Advisor to President Trump Stephen Miller. 

Donald Trump Jr. called it “worse than any of us could have ever imagined”.

The reaction in the PredictIt voting market after the debate was stark. As noted by Steven Rattner, the former head of the Obama Auto Task Force, NY Times op-ed author and economic analyst for Morning Joethe “prediction market quickly moved against Fetterman post debate”. 

Some pundits clearly felt bad for Fetterman’s state:

While others pulled no punches for him continuing:

Video: Analyst Claims “The Bushes” Are Running DeSantis’ Presidential Campaign

“Karl Rove will be the coach on the field”

Political analyst Mark Simone claimed this weekend that the Bush family is helping run Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign, and that the so called ‘Architect’ of George W. Bush’s successful campaigns Karl Rove is also on board.

“The Bushes are all tangled up with [DeSantis],” Simone said during a segment on Fox News Saturday.

“Bush who can raise him a billion dollars,” Simone continued, adding that “Karl Rove will be the coach on the field, I think he’s been advising him.”

“That’s why DeSantis has been getting a little better every week. They’re all very smart,” Simone further stated, adding “You saw what they did for Jeb Bush.”

However, when it comes to taking on Trump, Simone noted that “I don’t think they’re ready for Donald Trump.”

The claim prompted Trump’s son Don Jr. to label DeSantis “a Trojan Horse for the RINO establishment.”

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Trump himself is blacklisting anyone who works for the Florida Governor in an effort to shut down DeSantis’ campaign altogether.

An unnamed source close to Trump told Real Clear Politics that “It’s a time for choosing,” adding that “if you work for Ron DeSantis’ presidential race, you will not work for the Trump campaign or in the Trump White House.”

Over the weekend at a rally in Waco, Trump blasted DeSantis, stating “When a man comes to me with tears in his eyes, he’s had almost nothing in the polls,” referencing DeSantis’ 2018 gubernatorial run, adding “He’s at almost nothing, he’s got no cash.”

Trump continued, “And I said, I can’t give you an endorsement. There’s no way you can when you’re dead. I said, let’s give it a shot, Ron. I endorsed him. He became like a rocket ship. Within one day the race was over.”

    ‘Go, Go, Go! Help Them Up! Push Them Up’: New Leaked J6 Footage ‘Shows DC Metro Cop Encouraging People to Go Towards The Capitol’

    Published

    on

    Newly leaked footage from January 6th shows undercover DC Metropolitan Police officers pushing protesters to move towards the US Capitol and helping them climb the scaffolding outside the Capitol building. 

    The full video was leaked Saturday on Rumble by an anonymous account named OverwatchJ6:

    From The Epoch Times, “Prosecutor Admits DC Police Officers Acted as Provocateurs at US Capitol on Jan. 6”:

    A federal prosecutor admitted in court papers that three D.C. Metropolitan Police Department undercover officers acted as provocateurs at the northwest steps of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

    The admission came in a March 24 filing before U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras that seeks to keep video footage shot by the officers under court seal.

    Prosecutors accused the case defendant—William Pope of Topeka, Kansas—of an “illegitimate” attempt to unmask the video as part of his alleged strategy to try the case in the news media. Pope filed a motion to remove the court seal on Feb. 21.

    “The defendant is not entitled to ‘undesignate’ these videos to share them with unlimited third parties,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Kelly Moran. “His desire to try his case in the media rather than in a court of law is illegitimate, and the government has met its burden to show the necessity of the protective order.”

    The feds worked together with the media to smear everyone involved in this protest for two years straight and bias the already biased DC juries against them but their victims are not allowed to share this footage to defend themselves?

    The fact these cases are even being tried in DC is an absolute disgrace. J6 protesters are blatantly being denied their right to a fair trial on top of being held indefinitely in pre-trial detention and tortured in prison.

    Videos long hidden under court seal have become a major topic, especially with prosecutors disclosing in a number of high-profile Jan. 6 cases the involvement of multiple FBI informants.

    Pope is seeking to lift the court seal on the undercover video as part of his drive to obtain full access to video evidence held by the government. Pope is representing himself in the criminal case being prosecuted against him. At a hearing on March 3, Judge Contreras seemed sympathetic to Pope’s motion to unmask the videos.

    “The officer clearly incited that area, and we still don’t have video from all other undercover MPD,” Pope told The Epoch Times. “And as the numerous informants in the Proud Boys trial demonstrates, we are only just beginning to scratch the surface on FBI involvement.”

    […] “This video clearly evidences undercover law enforcement officers urging the crowds to advance up the stairs and scaffolding towards the Capitol on January 6,” Pope wrote in an earlier case filing. “The government may claim that incidents like this did not happen, but the facts show they did.”

    Prosecutor Moran acknowledges such in a motion filed on March 24.

    “The specific footage, GoPro video recorded by an MPD police officer who was stationed at the Capitol in an evidence-gathering capacity, captures the officer shouting words to the effect of, “Go! Go! Go!” Moran wrote.

    “At other times in these videos, the officer and the two other plainclothes officers with him appear to join the crowd around them in various chants, including “drain the swamp,” “U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”, and “Whose house? Our house!”

    Moran also argued against unsealing large amounts of closed-circuit television (CCTV) security video, which she said could put officers at risk.

    “There are very specific and highly worrisome risks associated with the specific videos the defendant seeks to share en masse,” she wrote.

    “Given the highly volatile nature of the discourse surrounding these cases, releasing the identities of the officers depicted in these videos—officers the defendant now claims to have instigated the entire attack on the U.S. Capitol—would surely put the lives of those officers at risk.”

    Pope told The Epoch Times that he never made such a claim. He has not yet filed a response to the government’s memorandum.

    Another video Pope discovered in his research shows Officer 2 and Officer 3 walking behind the late Ashli Babbitt on the northwest steps. About an hour later, Babbitt was shot at the entry of the Speaker’s Lobby by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd. She died a half-hour later.

    The only “risk” involved in releasing this footage and more from J6 is the police and feds being caught helping provocateur the event. 

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and Tucker Carlson need to get on with it already and release the 40,000 hours of footage they have to the public.

    Update

    An explosion at a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania on Friday resulted in the tragic loss of five lives, with six individuals still unaccounted for.

    *   *   * 

    On Friday evening, a devastating explosion rocked a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania, tragically leaving two people dead, nine unaccounted for, and eight others injured.

    West Reading Borough Police Department Chief Wayne Holben confirmed to Fox News the blast occurred at the R.M. Palmer Co. chocolate factory in West Reading, about 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia, around 1700 ET. 

    Shocking footage of the explosion emerged on social media. 

    “The explosion was so big that it moved that building four feet forward,” Mayor Samantha Kaag told reporters. She said, “It wasn’t a great scene to come into. It was pretty scary.” 

    Kaag said she felt the explosion at her home, four or five blocks from the factory.

    “I didn’t hear a boom,” she said. “I just felt it shake my house.”

    Law enforcement officials stated that the cause of the explosion is currently under investigation. This incident adds to the increasing number of food processing plants throughout the US experiencing fires or, in this instance, devastating explosions.
