Environmentalist Tells Tucker that Shifting Country’s Grid to Renewable Energy Isn’t Possible


Reported By Jason Hopkins | Published March 1, 2019 at 7:43am Modified March 1, 2019 at 11:43am

Environmental activist Michael Shellenberger explained to Fox News host Tucker Carlson that it’s not possible to shift the country’s grid completely to renewable energy.

“I was one of the founders of – sort of – the first Green New Deal back in 2003, 2007,” Shellenberger, the founder of Environmental Progress, began. “People don’t remember President Obama – we spent about $150 billion on renewables between 2009 and 2015, and we just kept encountering the same kind of problems.”

Shellenberger laid out the two main problems that plague wind turbines and solar panels: unreliability and low energy density.

“They just depend on when the sun is shining and when the wind is blowing, which is 10 to 40 percent of the year,” he said, demonstrating how the intermittent energy production of wind and solar makes them unreliable sources of power. “Something people are not as aware of, the low energy density of sunlight and wind. Basically what we’ve been finding is that the lower the energy density of the fuel … the bigger the environmental impact.”

Because solar and wind produce such small amounts of energy, according to Shellenberger, they require a much larger amount of land to generate electricity.

Instead, the Environmental Progress founder touted the benefits of nuclear energy — a source of power that can generate large amounts of reliable energy while emitting zero carbon emissions. However, Shellenberger said the public has yet to fully embrace nuclear energy because they associate it with nuclear bombs, past nuclear accidents and a desire to use energy that harmonizes with the natural world.

“That turns out to be a bad idea because the more natural resources we use, the worse it is for the natural environment, he said.

As environmental activists become more alarmed about the threat of climate change, many are reevaluating how they perceive nuclear. The U.S. nuclear industry currently supplies about 20 percent of the country’s total electricity, but it provides roughly 60 percent of its zero-carbon electricity. A growing number of climate change-oriented lawmakers are now passing subsidies and support programs to keep nuclear plants in operation.

Shellenberger went on to say it was “very disappointing” that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s widely publicized Green New Deal does not include provisions for nuclear energy. Ocasio-Cortez’s original FAQ document on the Green New Deal, in fact, called for a phase out of nuclear power. However, following the botched roll out of the Green New Deal, her team took the anti-nuclear language off their website.

12 Times Florida County’s Elections Supervisor Has Been ‘Incompetent and Possibly Criminal’

As both parties scrutinize the vote count in Florida’s Broward County, with the state’s gubernatorial and senatorial races closing in on a tie, Sen. Marco Rubio said the county’s elections office has a history of malfeasance.

“This is at a minimum a pattern of incompetence. Voters deserve better,” the Florida Republican said Thursday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“This is not even a partisan thing. This is a county that apparently cannot even count votes as well as a county that just got wiped out by a hurricane.”

The state’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott filed a lawsuit Thursday against Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes for allegedly refusing to tell them about votes she has not yet counted. The vote totals Snipes tabulated two days after the election would have readers believe that more people cast votes for agricultural commissioner than for U.S. Senator.

Additionally, lawyer Marc Elias of Perkins Coie — who hired Fusion GPS for the Democratic National Committee to investigate Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election — has been hired to litigate a recount on behalf of Democrats.

The Republican National Committee also pointed out 12 times news stories using its own headlines where Snipes has “been outright incompetent and possibly criminal”:

Actual Descendant of Pocahontas Speaks Out on Elizabeth Warren’s DNA Test – ‘I Feel Betrayed’


Reported By Steven Beyer | October 17, 2018 at 10:20am

A descendant of the famed 17th-century Powhatan princess Pocahontas spoke out against Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test results Tuesday on Fox News Tucker Carlson Tonight,” saying she felt “betrayed” by the senator’s claims of Native American ancestry.

Host Carlson asked Debbie White Dove Porreco about the Massachusetts Democrat’s test results, saying, “You’ve watched Elizabeth Warren, once again, put herself at the head of the ‘Me Sioux’ movement, and come out with this DNA test which you called for. Now that we have the results, what’s your response?”

“Well, first of all, I’m so glad she ended up taking one,” Porrecco said, “and it did prove that she wasn’t the Cherokee Indian that she’s been claiming to be for so long.”

“How did that make you feel as a descendant of Pocahontas?” Carlson asked. “Cultural appropriation is often in the news. Do you think she’s guilty of it?”

Porrecco replied, “Well, I think she’s guilty of claiming she’s been American Indian but (has) no proof, and using it for applications, for college, for political reasons.

“And that was all wrong, that she did that this whole time.”

Carlson then asked her how she felt about Warren being called the “first female faculty member of color” at Harvard.

“I feel betrayed,” Porrecco said, “because she wasn’t. She was using the name, trying to be American Indian just to rise above.”

She went on to say that Warren’s claim of being American Indian took away “benefits” from the American Indians that belonged to them.

Carlson asked Porrecco if other Native Americans felt the same way she did.

She responded, “I do. I think they feel betrayed. They feel disappointed, you know. I think at this point, she needs to come back and apologize to everybody for what she’s done.”

“Yes,” Carlson said, “I think that’s right.

Porrecco, however, isn’t the only Native American to speak out after Warren released her DNA test results on Monday. Chuck Hoskin Jr., the Cherokee Nation’s secretary of state, said in a statement Monday that “Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

Additionally, Hoskin said, “A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America.”

Using a DNA test to prove that you have a connection to the Cherokee or any other tribal nation, Hoskin noted, is “inappropriate and wrong.”

Tucker: Demographics In America Are Changing ‘Bewilderingly Fast’ — ‘Without Any Real Public Debate On The Subject’


Reported by Justin Caruso | Media Reporter | 10:08 PM 03/19/2018

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson spoke frankly on Monday about demographic change in the United States.

“Now, before you start calling anyone bigoted…”

“A recent piece in National Geographic tells you a lot about demographics in America, and about how bewilderingly fast they’re changing without any real public debate on the subject,” The Daily Caller co-founder said.

“The magazine profiles the small coal mining town of Hazleton, Pennsylvania. In the year 2000, Hazleton’s  population was 2 percent Hispanic. Just 16 years later, Hazleton is majority Hispanic. That’s a lot of change. People who grew up in Hazleton return to find out they can’t communicate with the people who now live there. And that’s bewildering for people. That’s happening all over the country. No nation, no society has ever changed this much, this fast.” (RELATED: ‘Why Don’t We Get Real?’: Tucker Takes On Illegal Immigrant Lawyer [VIDEO])

“Now, before you start calling anyone bigoted, consider and be honest, how would you feel if that happened in your neighborhood? It doesn’t matter how nice the immigrants are. They probably are nice. Most immigrants are nice, that’s not the point. The point is–this is more change than human beings are designed to digest. This pace of change makes societies volatile–really volatile, just as ours has become volatile.”

“And notice where this change is not happening? Any place our leaders live. They caused all of us with their reckless immigration policies, and yet their own neighborhoods are basically unchanged, they look like it’s 1960. No demographic change at all in their zip codes. Our leaders are for diversity, just not where they live.” (RELATED: ‘It’s Just Unbelievable’: Jeff Sessions Lays Down The Law With Tucker [VIDEO])

Tucker Tells Real Story Behind Video Of ICE Pulling Mother From Kids


Reported by Amber Athey | Media Reporter | 8:54 PM 03/13/2018

Screen Shot Tucker Carlson (Fox News: March 13, 2018)

Fox News host Tucker Carlson told viewers Tuesday the real story behind a viral video that showed an illegal immigrant mother being ripped away from her kids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The video shows a woman being pulled away from her three screaming daughters as ICE orders her to get into a van. Media outlets ran with the “upsetting” video, focusing their headlines on the idea that the woman was unfairly being taken from her kids.

The Washington Post, for example, wrote, “Dramatic video shows Border Patrol agents pulling woman away from her screaming children,” while the Los Angeles Times said, “Video of woman being pulled away from her daughters in immigration arrest sparks anger.” 

CBS News similarly claimed, “Video of woman’s immigration arrest sparks outcry, response from Border Patrol.”

However, there is much more to the story than what is shown in the video.

As Carlson reported on his show, the ICE agents made a targeted arrest based on suspicions that the woman was involved in a human trafficking ring.

“A key detail is being left out,” The Daily Caller co-founder explained. “The woman in that video…isn’t some random illegal alien pulled off the street by those cowboys. She’s suspected by the feds of organizing a human trafficking operation.” 

“I don’t know if I’ve seen coverage as dishonest as this in a long time,” he continued. “I mean, this is the definition of propaganda.”

Mark Krikorian from the Center for Immigration Studies agreed, stating, “They knew that this woman was involved in a smuggling ring and they saw her out, they tried to get in touch with her before and she didn’t respond and, apparently, when they confronted her in the street she tried to flee.”

Exposed: Maxine Waters Lives in Highly Segregated Wealthy Community, No Where Near Her Represented District


Tucker Carlson handed Maxine Waters’ her a** last night on his show after the representative from California stated she was going to tear Ben Carson’s – Secretary of Housing and Urban Development – a** apart if he stepped in to her committee.

“Ben Carson was appointed to be the HUD secretary,” she reportedly said.

“He knows nothing about the mission of HUD. He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.”

“And if he thinks when he comes before my committee where I am the ranking member [of the Financial Services Committee] that I am going to give him a pass… I am going to take his a** apart,” she vowed.

Lo and behold Carlson may have discovered why Maxine has her claws out with Ben. Waters, being a ranking member of the Financial Services Committee, may have been abusing her powers:

“[W]aters is a confirmed expert on the question of housing, especially her own housing,” Carlson stated. “Consider where she lives, in a 6,000 square foot, $4.3 million mansion in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Los Angeles.

Now, how did she afford a place like that after having spent the last 40 years working in government? We hate to speculate. How did she keep getting reelected despite not living in her own Congressional district? No clue there either.

The district Waters actually represents in Congress has the second-highest percentage of African-American residents in the state of California.”

Now, the neighborhood where Waters actually lives is just six percent black or, as she might put it herself if she didn’t live there, it is segregated — like 1950s level segregated. And as we’ve mentioned, it is really, really rich.

So, how did Maxine Waters pull off a housing coup like that, who knows, but it almost qualifies her to be HUD Secretary herself.”

Plenty to speculate here.

Maxine Waters is probably afraid Ben Carson is going to be the end of her corrupt political career.

THIS IS A MUST SHARE ARTICLE: INSANE! Woman DEFENDS Female Genital Mutilation on Young Girls, Tries to…


Posted by http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/ | May 4, 2017

Female Genital Mutilation has to be one of the most barbaric forms of ‘tradition’ any young Islamic girl has to encounter. It is absolutely horrific.

What’s more terrifying is having another woman defending this disgusting ritual.

Last night on Tucker Carlson’s show Fuambai Ahmadu, a female anthropologist, did just that. Not only was she defending ‘female circumcision’, but she was also trying to redefine it.

Ahmadu :”I don’t identify with the term FGM with the term mutilation, I don’t know anybody in my family that does or my community. And from over 25 years of research I’ve done in the field, I would say the great majority of women who are affected by what I call female circumcision practices do not see themselves as mutilated.”

Fuambai – the Witch of the West – took it a step further and went on to defend the doctor in Michigan, Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, for performing FGM on young girls.

According to FOX NewsFederal surveillance cameras were rolling in a Michigan medical clinic’s parking lot earlier this year as two little girls were brought, separately, in for alleged genital mutilation procedures, according to The Detroit News.

But it wasn’t until three weeks later, apparently, that investigators on the case – the first in U.S. federal courts dealing with female genital mutilation — analyzed the clips and realized what had been captured on the video, the newspaper said.

The video shows Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, owner of the Burhani Medical Clinic, his wife, Farida Attar, who is the clinic manager, and another doctor, Jumana Nagarwala, arriving at the facility in the early evening of Feb. 3, minutes before the two girls – age 7 – arrived separately with an adult.

The video is expected to be a key piece of evidence in the federal government’s effort to obtain convictions against the Attars and Nagarwala, the newspaper said. They face charges of female genital mutilation, conspiring to commit female genital mutilation and trying to cover up the crimes.

Tucker Carlson made an excellent point during his interview with this twisted sister: little girls should NEVER be subjected to this mutilation practice because they’re too young to consent to such an operation that leaves them with permanent damage. It’s shocking that anyone could defend harming little girls like this, nonetheless from another woman!
