Debate Questions To Ask Joe Biden - Josh Kantrow

Of course no matter what is actually said, Biden will be declared the victor by MSM but here are some questions that AmericanThinker.com's Josh Kantrow suggests Chris Wallace ask Joe Biden...

1. Why did members of your family keep getting lucrative business opportunities overseas while you were vice president?

2. How did your brother, Frank, secure $45,000,000 in taxpayer loans from the Obama administration for his Caribbean projects?

3. How did a newly minted firm employing your other brother, James, receive a $1.5-billion contract to build homes in Iraq despite having no experience in construction or international development?

4. Why did your son Hunter accompany you on your official trip to Beijing in December 2013? What did he do on that trip? Whom did he meet with? What should the American public make of the fact that just ten days after this trip, your son’s boutique private equity firm secured a $1-billion investment deal from the state-owned bank of China (later expanded to $1.5 billion) despite having no prior experience in China, and why, with this deal, did the Chinese government grant your son's firm a first-of-its-kind arrangement to operate in the the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone — a perk not granted to any of the large established financial institutions?

5. Should the American public be concerned that your son's private equity firm partnered with a Chinese government-owned aerospace and defense conglomerate to facilitate the purchase of an American company that produced strategically sensitive dual-use military technology that the Chinese government wanted?

6. Does your "Build Back Better" proposal contain any provisions to ensure that American taxpayer-funded technology is not bought off by Chinese state-backed enterprises working with private equity firms like your son's?

7. Back in 2000, you voted in favor of giving permanent Normal Trade Relations (NTR) to China. At the time, you said this would not lead to "the collapse of the American manufacturing economy" because China is "about the size of the Netherlands" and could not possibly become "our major economic competitor." Furthermore, you predicted that free trade with China would establish "a path toward ever greater political and economic freedom" for the people of China. Do you stand by these statements today after 3.4 million American jobs have been lost to China and millions of China's citizens have been imprisoned, surveilled, disappeared, and used as slave labor by an increasingly authoritarian regime enriched by 20 years of record trade imbalances from flagrant trade violations?

8. The People's Republic of China has a bold plan called "Made in China 2025" to dominate the key technologies of the future in order to overtake the United States militarily and economically. Do you still contend that China is "not competition for us"?

9. Why did you promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to financial special interest groups when research was clear that the deal would make it easier for corporations to move U.S. jobs overseas?

10. Do you believe that Xi Jinping kept his promise to Barack Obama to end cyber-espionage against the United States? If not, what are you prepared to do about it?

11. Do you accept that the coronavirus originated in China? Do you think China was honest with the world in its handling of the coronavirus? Are you satisfied with China's explanations for how it spread? Do you believe Chinese claims about the number of cases and fatalities in China?

12. Do you think China should be held responsible in any way for its handling of the coronavirus? If not, why not? What, if any, repercussions should there be for China in its handling of the coronavirus?

13. Did you suggest investigating Michael Flynn under the Logan Act, as Peter Strzok's notes suggest?

14. You said in your DNC acceptance speech that America is ready to "do the hard work of rooting out our systemic racism." What did you do in your 36 years as a U.S. senator and eight years as vice president to root out systemic racism? Why didn't it work?

15. You have called for "revolutionary institutional changes." What does that mean in practice?

16. You have vowed to rescind the Trump tax cuts. Can you think of a single example of a country that recovered from a recession by raising taxes?

Perhaps Wallace should be judged on how many of these questions are asked?

    To answer that unnumbered question at the bottom of the list, if me dino were a teacher I'd give Wallace a "F" and expel him from Fox News, though I doubt that would reverse that network's slow descent.

    Apparently, American Thinker missed the memo!
    Chris Wallace is a Trump Hater through and through and would never take to asking anything but softball questions of Biden.

      I think the writer agrees with you, but wanted the valid questions to be asked by someone anyway.

        In today's Covid climate I would prefer to see the debates in a Town Hall format with the questions equally divided between the two candidates and asked by voters over the phone. The question gets asked and the line goes dead and only the mic of the candidate is live while he gets 2 or 3 minutes to answer. The moderator can only step in if the candidate failed to answer the question or goes of the rails.

          I'd prefer to see an actual debate with discussion of real issues and solutions. Hasn't happened since 1960.
          I'd also prefer Trump to be as understandable as Perot was and as clearly patriotic as AUH2O.

    I really felt Wallace was 'soft' on Biden and only seemed to respond when Biden called our President 'a clown'. Biden brought up Trump's family but didn't have anything to say about them! Guess not, considering his family's sins.

    To be fair to Wallace, he asked a variation on some of those questions, and Trump beat Biden over the head with his family's shenanigans. To Wallace, Biden flatly stated "I'm not going to answer that," and to Trump he just kept saying "those have all been disproven." When Wallace asked who had disproven the charges about Hunter, he just said "the media, and lots of other people."

    The fact is that Biden can refuse to answer, lie, and make false accusations, like his melodramatic attempt to accuse Trump of demeaning the military (which had already been refuted by at least 13 witnesses), and there are no repercussions. The moderator is not a fact checker, so the audience is left to determine who is telling the biggest lies. Anyone whom expected this debate to have an impact should be sorely disappointed.

    Questions that should have been asked--thank you Freedom for posting that list. How would folks go about suggestions to the next moderator regarding format and subject matter? Both need a major change! I felt obligated to watch the first debate, wasted 90 minutes seeing slop, and I won't do it again unless the whole production is tightened and rules are enforced equally.

      The next moderator will be more obviously leftist than Wallace. Trump has the deck stacked against him, as usual. Nothing will change unless an independent group runs the debates. Won't happen unless the 2 party system is banned and competition welcomed in politics. (Won't happen.) Upside? You won't ever waste time watching another debate.

    I see now that the commission on Presidential Debates is going to change some rules for the upcoming debates.
    Hold my Beer! I suspect they will bring in new moderators such as FB Zuckerberg, Twitter Dorsey and Amazon Bezos just so they can Censor everything from Trump and allow Biden free rein.
