With only weeks away from Election Day. And some states already early voting this debate was in some circumstances the most important one of them all. Well, get in the details of who won and why. And why the media was more caring for a Fly than the facts.
Who won the debate?
There was no question that VP Pence won this debate. At some points just shutting down Harris talking points. Forcing her to take a flip flop stance on the green new deal. He made good points on how she was one of the first senators to support it. How she locked up non-violent drug offenders and in some key cases she knowingly withheld key evidence that would have sent that person free.
All Harris could do through the night was smile and ”giggle” though it all it looked really bad for her. Not according to the media but will get to that later. She just smirked ever time Vp Pence made a good point about her and her record not a good look for the potential President. Yes, I said, President people believe that Joe Biden is only a filler President just a puppet of the sort, and Harris is in the wings waiting for her time to shine. So in conclusion Harris had no key talking points looked underprepared and did not have a good night overall.
Why the media was so bias in this debate
So with all those facts that we mentioned above, you would the media would say VP Pence won this debate. Unfortunately, you’d be wrong most major media outlets said Harris won this debate but when pressed on how and why she won they really could not give a real answer.
All they had to go one were there talking points first was the same old same old points about how VP Pence was ”Talking down” to Harris and was in their opinion ”sexist” at some points in the debate which isn’t true say what you will about Mike Pence but he is probably one of the nicer political figures we have today. The second Talking point was how VP Pence was ”Racist” in his comments to Harris about her time as a prosecutor. Again which isn’t true these are just their opinions spilling out into what is supposed to be their job to keel it fair and like most times we saw they did not. That brings us to our last point of the debate A fly yep you heard it here first all anyone in the main press could talk about was the fact for two minutes a fly was on VP Pence head. That’s how you know he won. The fact they had no answer for anything Harris did besides some incorrect statements about the VP and a FLY.
Conclusion on what’s next
To wrap everything up on what’s next for Both parties coming down the home stretch here. I think this gives a small boost to the Trump-Pence ticket. In reality, most Americans have either made up there mind on who they’re gonna vote for or already have voted in some states. The main thing here was that Pence destroyed Harris with Cold Hard Facts and all she could do was smile. And all the media could do was talk about a bug but hey it’s 2020 and we still have a long way to go anything could happen one thing is for sure though it will keep us buzzing.
Eddie Van Halen tragically passed away on October 6th 2020 after a long battle with lung cancer. Eddie was diagnosed with cancer in 2015, and though he was a frequent smoke, attributes it to a metal guitar pick he would often hold in his mouth. While the music industry and the world as a hole are devastated at this lose, we are able to look back at the incredible life and career of the Van Halen Co-Founder and remember some of the lasting impressions and moments he has left with us. The following are just a few of the things we will continue to remember Eddie Van Halen by.
When thinking of Van Halen one image always seems to comes to mind, That guitar. Eddie Van Halen is well known for his custom hardware, the first and most famous of course being The Frankenstart. Comprised of a Fender Stratocaster body personally modified to fit a Gibson PAF humbucking pickup, which was encased in paraffin wax to reduce feedback due to the nature of it’s installation, and off-centered to allow the differently spaced strings of a Fender bridge to be able to be picked up. Removing both tone control knobs, Eddie opted rather to use one of the knobs marked “Tone” on his volume control. He wasn’t even close to done there however, When deciding on a pick guard EVH chose to shape a vinyl record over the controls, which was later replaced. Now onto that classic paint job. Originally painted black, Van Halen used gaffing tape to section off strips of the body before painting the guitar over again in white, then once more in red. Did I mention that later on in his career Eddie decided to add a sideways three way switch in the middle of his guitar that wasn’t actually connected just to throw off imitations. A copy of the Frankenstrat can be found in the National Museum of American History, but in April of 2019 the original was displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Listening to Van Halen it becomes very clear, very fast, it’s all about the guitar. With all the time and effort he out into creating the instrument how could it not be! Eddie Van Halen is known world over as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Playing with a wild and fast style that has yet to be replicated, Eddie used every possible aspect if the guitar. Known best for his signature tapping, a style of playing based around using both hands to hammer string on the neck of the guitar, EVH left us with some of the absolute most iconic and memorable solos of all time. Most notable, Van Halen’s instrumental track Eruption features a near two minute guitar solo from EVH popularly considered one of the greatest solos of all time. Featuring on the self title album Van Halen, The track leads perfectly into You Really Got Me, beginning in key of A flat and ending on E flat. Eddie Van Halen will forever go down in history as one of the greatest there ever was to pick up six strings.
Whether it’s prancing around in three piece brown suits in Hot For Teacher or flying across the stage in Panama, Eddie steals the scene. Eddie Van Halen was true superstar both on stage and behind the camera and always looked like he was having the time of his life doing it. Think back, when I say Van Halen music video, do you see Eddie in the scene that comes to mind? Who could forget him flying across the screen guitar in hand in Panama, or strutting down a library desk busting out one of the meanest solos of all time. These are images that have been engrained in our brains and society for decades. Not to mention my personal favorite, that cheeky smile in Jump knowing damn well the history he’s making with that guitar. Something just hits different in a Van Halen music video, and that something is Eddie.
Above all else the greatest gift EVH ever gave us was himself. Van Halen was formed in 1972 with brother Eddie and Alex, and have been a staple on our radios and in our homes since. A band like this with a line up this powerful only comes around once in a lifetime and Eddie was the force that brought it together. We will always have the unforgettable, iconic, and rockin’ tunes of Van Halen to remind us how legendary and unique Eddie Van Halen was. One of the greatest guitarists of all time, and one of the most influential musicians to ever take the world by storm, none of this happens without Eddie Van Halen. Rest In Peace.
