The 2016 vice-presidential debate is here commented upon. Each candidate was impressive and now I am more undecided than ever.
Thus reads the description for my latest video, “Scoring the Veep Debate”, published to YouTube on October 6, 2016. The clip, which clocks in at 9 minutes and 16 seconds, can hopefully be viewed at the top of today’s blog entry.
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, candidates for the vice-presidency, debated on Tuesday night, October 4, 2016. The Veep debate was moderated by Elaine Quijano.
I didn’t have time to watch the Veep debate until Wednesday afternoon, October 5th. I then “slept on it” and the next morning made my video.
Used in my video commentary was a debate transcript published by The Washington Post. Quotes below are from the Post’s transcript, unless noted otherwise. 
Moderator Elaine Quijano seemed fair to me, as did Lester Holt, moderator of the first Donald Trump/Hillary Clinton debate. However there’s no telling about Anderson Cooper, set to co-moderate the second Trump/Clinton debate on Sunday, October 9, 2016, along with co-moderator Martha Raddatz.  Anderson Cooper is rumored to be connected with the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and Hillary Clinton herself is a longtime CIA operative. 
In the Veep debate of October 4th, both candidates, Kaine and Pence, turned in impressive performances. However Kaine interrupted Pence quite a lot. Nonetheless, Pence was not flustered by all the interruptions.
Russia was THE EVIL OGRE, according to both candidates. “You guys love Russia,” charged Kaine. But Pence was no less hardline, complaining about “The newly emboldened — the aggression of Russia, whether it was in Ukraine or now they’re heavy-handed approach…” Both candidates were simplistic in their portrayals of Russia. In reality, the situation with Russia is complicated, and Russia is not the only side at fault in the deterioration of U.S./Russian relations.
Kaine attacked on the issue of Trump’s taxes, but really Trump had only taken a legal deduction. Who doesn’t take all the deductions they can when doing their taxes?
The Sacred Icon of 9/11 (September 11, 2001) was on display, and both candidates genuflected before it. “I was in Washington, D.C., on 9/11. I saw the clouds of smoke rise from the Pentagon,” intoned Pence. “I was in Virginia where the Pentagon’s…”, interrupted Kaine. I did not expect either candidate to say anything like, “Well, I have questions about what really happened on that day”, and of course they did not. The Sacred Icon of 9/11 must not be questioned! It is taboo! This goes back to Sigmund Freud’s book, Totem and Taboo. The taboo is, we must not look in a certain direction; the totem is what thereby results – a sacred object which must not be blasphemed.
Both candidates were big on building up the military. This is because THE EVIL OGRE is on the prowl. That money could be spent elsewhere, but then the ogre would gobble us all up.
And then, at the close, Kaine made a stunning revelation! “I was educated by Jesuits at Rockhurst High School in Kansas City,” Kaine brazenly admitted. “And I worked with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras…” Any decent conspiracy theorist will have misgivings about Kaine’s admitted Jesuit connections. For background, see F. Tupper Saussy’s book, Rulers Of Evil, or the more obscure book by Samuel F.B. Morse, Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States.
