In a supreme twist of irony, perhaps the Commission on Presidential Debates did Donald Trump a favor after all.

After the first presidential debate in Cleveland  became a mutual interruption-fest, and after the proposed anti-Trump moderator Steve Scully effectively killed any chance of a second debate by lying about his public tweets to fellow anti-Tumper Vince Scaramucci, for the third debate, the Presidential Debate Commissions finally put its foot down.

No more interruptions, the Commission declared, and by golly they would enforce that rule by cutting the candidates microphones to avoid interruptions.

Even though Biden interrupted first during the Cleveland debate (Check at the 8:01 mark of the transcript when Biden interrupted Trump’s remarks on  pre-existing conditions with the  comment “He’s elected to the next election”), and even though Biden interrupted Trump just as much as Trump interrupted Biden,  make no mistake about it: The Commission’s  microphone muting-rule was instituted to imply that it was Trump, and not Biden, who had been the first the interrupter-in-chief.

But many well-intentioned pundits, commenting on the results of the first debate, observed that if you just let Biden talk long enough, eventually he will hang himself.

Perhaps the anti-Trumpers on the  Commission did not believe that warning, because the microphone-muting rules allowed Biden to do just that,  with a stunning moment that may just be the coup de gras against his Trojan Horse campaign.

Amidst his repeated cries of “come on man,” Biden, now known in some parts at the “big man,” exposes his true intentions to embrace radical environmentalism during the topic of   “climate change” topic of the debate.

Aside from his repeated lie  in denying that he had previously vowed to ban fracking —  prevarications easily exposed and contradicted by multiple video clips —  Trump’s “there you go again” moment– harkening back to the moment in the 1980 Presidential debate when the electorate began to break heavily to Reagan over Carter — may have come when Biden’s tongue slipped — repeatedly — on the topic of fossil fuels.

Consider the job-killing environmental radicalism Biden revealed, which would change our way of life and destroy our economy.

First off, Biden says he wants to put “50,000 charging stations on our highways so that we can own the electric car market of the future.”

He wants us to give up our Volkswagen Passat, our Dodge Ram truck, and our Chevy Suburban. Biden wants us all to surrender our vehicles which use gasoline.  So, we must get rid of our Fords and Chevy and go out buy an electric car, a Tesla for example, that could cost up to $125,000?  Who’s going to pay for that?

Biden, as we now know, apparently has a special personal interest in China, cites China as his model for this whacko charging-station mandate.  Biden fails to mention that much of the electricity used in these inefficient electric cars is generated from fossil fuels.

The UK Guardian reported in December of 2016 that 72% of China’s electricity is generated by coal. And in the United States, at least 1/3 the nation’s electricity is also generated by coal fuel sources.  It’s not like this mandated electric car scheme, which is extremely expensive impractical, and which would largely be powered by fossil fuels, is really clean or emission-free as Biden and his Democrat  centralized planners specialists would have us believe.

First off, who’s going to pay for all these charging stations? Biden first claimed in the debate that he was going to put 500,000 charging stations along the roads, before changing the number to 50,000.

But using the government to make us give up our cars wasn’t the only radical scheme Biden admitted to during the debate.

Check this quote:

“We’re going to see to it that we’re going to take 4 million existing buildings and 2 million existing homes and retrofit them so they don’t leak as much energy, saving hundreds of millions of barrels of oil in the process”

4 million buildings?

2 million homes?

So, the government is going to come in under Biden-Harris and make you spend hundreds of thousands of dollars changing your home to fit their radical environmental specifications?  Who’s going to pay for that?

That radicalism will come right out of his hard-earned savings account of the American wage earner. That’s what you get if you vote Democrat.

But finally, here is the ultimate “there you go again” zinger.

It comes during the “Climate Change” segment of the debate, when Trump asks Biden, “Would you close down the oil industry?”

Perhaps not thinking in a moment of fog-clouded dementia, Biden’s admission is shocking: “I would transition from the oil industry, yes.”

But it doesn’t end there. This is no isolated slip of the tongue.  Biden digs himself deeper. Consider the rest of the exchange.

Donald Trump: “Oh, that’s a big statement.”

Joe Biden: “I will transition. It is a big statement.”

Donald Trump: “That’s a big statement.”

Joe Biden: “Because I would stop.”

Kristen Welker: “Why would you do that?”

Joe Biden: “Because the oil industry pollutes…”

So, it’s true. If you give Biden enough rope, he will hang himself.

Without the oil industry, we have no cars, no airplanes, no ships, and no roads.  In many instances, without oil, there is no heat in the dead cold of winter.  The oil industry is large part of the economic engine that drives America.  And Biden-Harris-AOC are waging war against oil.

Biden let his true colors show, revealing the most radical environmentalist left-wing agenda ever placed before the voters in American history,  all driven, mandated, and engineered, by the AOC Green New Deal masquerading as the “Biden plan.”

The more he talks, the more he hangs himself.

The radical left-wing of the Democrat Party aside, America is not ready for that type of freedom killing, job-killing environmental Nazism.

“There you go again,” Mr. Biden.

Now the voters know.
