Tucker Warns: Do Not Ignore Why Yesterday Happened


Tucker Warns: Do Not Ignore Why Yesterday Happened

Fox News host and longtime journalist Tucker Carlson is roundly condemning violence at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, but warns the reason behind what happened should not be ignored. 

“Political violence begets political violence. That is always true. It is an iron law, it never changes and we have to be against that. No matter who commits the violence or under what pretext. No matter how many self interested demagogues tell us the violence is justified or necessary as they have been assuring us, lying to us, for the past six months. We have a duty to oppose all of it. Not simply because political violence kills other people’s children, which it does, but because in the end it doesn’t work,” Carlson said. “Our only option as a practical matter is to fix what is causing this in the first place. We don’t have a choice.”

“As horrifying as this moment is, we have no option but to make it better. To gut it out,” he continued. “Why were any of them there today? We ought to think about that. If you want to fix it, you have to think about that. The only reason this country is rich and successful is because for hundreds of years we’ve enjoyed a stable is because it’s democracy. It responds to voters. Democracy is our pressure relief valve. As long as people sincerely believe they can change things by voting, they stay calm. They don’t storm the Bastille, they don’t burst into the House chamber. They talk and they organize and they vote. But the opposite is also true. If people begin to belief that their democracy is fraudulent. If they conclude that voting is a charade, that the system is rigged, that it’s run in secret by a small group of powerful dishonest people that are acting in their own interests, then God knows what could happen. Actually, we do know what could happen. It’s happening right now.”

WATCH: Tucker Carlson blasts Democrats and corporate giants for bankrupting America’s small businesses and the working class


Reported by Leonardo Briceno, The Post Millennial | 3 Mins Reading

Tucker Carlson voiced concerns about the financial inequality caused by pandemic on Friday night, noting that the same Democratic forces that are advocating for lockdowns and pushing small businesses out of the marketplace are propping up massive businesses that fray the social fabric and will destroy our free-market capitalist economy.

“Here’s another idea,” Carlson said in defense of the American taxpayer. “Why not make the people who benefited the most from the lockdown—the people who have encouraged them from day one—pay for the effects of those lockdowns?”

“Why wouldn’t you assess them a one-time COVID fee, take it out of their record profits, and make them pay for the next bailout? Why are you paying for it?”

Carlson noted the problems of income inequality that have been escalated by government’s refusal to allow people to earn a living on their own terms and to their own ability. As the pandemic debt grows, Amazon and other massive multi-national corporations are reaping the benefits while the average American taxpayer will be expected to foot the bill.

“The people in charge of our economy are discrediting our system,” he said. “They are giving capitalism a bad name, because what they are participating in is not a market economy, a free open market economy, it’s a closed game run for their own benefit and their benefit alone. Long term this is a disaster for all of us,” he said.

Where calls for socialism have escalated on the Democratic left, under the guise of believing government hand-outs can solve all problems, there has been a disproportionate strain on small businesses while lockdowns have choked the effectiveness of a market economy.

Carlson suggested that the big winners of the pandemic, large, Democrat-party backed corporations like Apple, Amazon, Walmart, should share in the burden of the economic devastation left behind by COVID-19 that has crippled business and markets that would have otherwise remained opened and operational.

“There’s no reason ordinary taxpayers should be on the hook for their spending, they have suffered enough,” Carlson said. He said that universities should pay off student loan debt with their massive endowments, and that the biggest companies should not be profiting at the expense of small businesses.

At its heart, capitalism is driven by a free and voluntary exchange of goods and services. This, per free-market thinking, will allow consumers to purchase products that bring them the most value while providers will endeavor to offer the best product possible at the lowest cost.

But due to shutdowns and restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19, the space for a “free and voluntary” exchange has altogether disappeared for entire industries. With a greater demand to re-distributive, socialist policies, Carlson believes that capitalism—as a system—needs to be re-validated in the eyes of Americans. Carlson voiced frustrations that a market economy has been crippled by government restrictions and then given a bad name.

“What they are participating in is not a market economy, a free and open market economy—it’s a closed game, run for their own benefit and their benefit alone,” Carlson said.

It has been a long-standing GOP talking point to specifically not talk about income inequality, and Carlson appears to be breaking ranks over bringing it up on his show. But there’s a difference to Carlson, and to many on the new right that advocates for working class Americans over profit margins, between allowing corporate interests to run rough-shod over the American republic and advocating for a free and open marketplace where individuals can earn and succeed as a result of their own hard work.

The progressive politicians in the House, and at the state level, continue to advocate for the shuttering of our small businesses, while advocating for the giants of industry to stay open and operational. It is those same giants of industry that fill the Democratic party’s pockets, back their unfair policies, and claim they are doing it all for the public good.

Tucker Carlson Accuses Fox News of Perpetrating a ‘Dictatorship’ for Censoring White House Press Secretary


Reported by  

After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.

“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.

“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded.

The entire rant can be seen here:

 

He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect:

It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.

Big League Politics has reported on how consumer boycotts from angry, triggered liberals have been ineffective at stopping the juggernaut freight train that is Carlson:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been dogged by ad boycotts from commercial terrorism entities like Sleeping Giants for telling the truth about the marxist Black Lives Matter revolution, but the whining of the snowflakes has not had much of an effect, as Carlson brings in tens of millions to Fox News.

According to MediaPost, ad revenues for prime time cable TV news shows have risen by 31.5 percent over the prior three-month period. Fox News did particularly well during this time period, rising 44.3 percent to $79.7 million, due to Carlson’s dominance as well as the success of Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham.

Standard Media Index’s Accu-TV says that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” raked in $37.2 million, ahead of “The Ingraham Angle” and “Hannity” by a small margin. Other more left-leaning news networks also rose during the period, as the public becomes more tuned into the news with a presidential election coming into focus. CNN rose 28.4 percent to $45.7 million and MSNBC gained 11.8 percent up to $33.3 million.

Big League Politics has reported about Carlson’s ratings dominance amidst his emergence as a lone voice of compassion and sanity for the forgotten man in America…

Carlson is cultivating America’s patriot awakening during a time in which it is being besieged by the enemies of civilization.

If Fox News dumps Carlson, it will probably be the death blow to the beleaguered network that has fallen far since founder Rupert Murdoch’s retirement.

Fmr NV AG Laxalt: ‘No Question’ Trump Would Have Won Nevada ‘Convincingly’ Without Mail-in Voting


Reported by JEFF POOR |

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt decried changes to his state’s mail-in voting laws and subsequent decisions from a court that made it difficult for allies of President Donald Trump to monitor ballot-counting now underway.

According to Laxalt, the rules were changed 90 days out of the election.

“Let me first say we believe we have a path to victory, but the Democrats have absolutely stacked the deck against us in this election,” he said. “They’ve changed this election inside 90 days and as votes are being counted and America thinks that with all these mail-in ballots, that you think you have people watching that counting going on, we are still not allowed to watch the signature-matching. We are not allowed to challenge any of those signatures. So, they switch us to this new system, and they give us no right to be sure that only legal voters count. As America knows, those that stayed up like me all night — they dumped these at 3 a.m. They counted through the middle of the night.”

“They’re counting all day today,” Laxalt continued. “And we’re still having to wait until tomorrow. And we are still right at this second, not in that door. And I warned them about this — that if it came down to Nevada, we’d finally get people to pay attention to the fact that the Democrats didn’t give us this right, and a judge agreed that we weren’t entitled to this right. Of course, we disagreed with that, and we’re still fighting that. But just for your viewers, that has to be quite startling that almost 400,000 votes were cast last night, and there was no observation, no transparency. And you know, we’re supposed to just trust but not be able to verify.”

Laxalt said had the state not chosen a course for mail-in voting, Trump would have won Nevada over former Vice President Joe Biden “convincingly.”

“There is no question that Donald Trump would have won Nevada last night convincingly if we did not move to mail-in ballots,” he added. “And again, we don’t know how bad voters there are in this giant stack. We also know there are likely to be dead voters. There are likely to be people that have moved out of Las Vegas but found their ballots were still cast. So we’re looking into all of this, but it’s just astounding when you watch the news commentary last night about this. They keep acting these systems are foolproof, and there’s no way that any improper voter can get through. And it is just simply not true.”

‘Who Do You Think You Are, God?’: Tucker Carlson Calls Gov. Cuomo ‘Stupid Governor’ Over Threat To Close Religious Services


Reported by DAVID KRAYDEN | OTTAWA BUREAU CHIEF | October 06, 20209:31 AM ET

URL of the originating web site: https://www.conservativereview.com/who-do-you-think-you-are-god-tucker-carlson-calls-gov-cuomo-stupid-governor-over-threat-to-close-religious-services-2648115541.html/

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a “stupid governor” and is violating the First Amendment for his threat to close down religious services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Carlson asked if Cuomo believed he was “God” during “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and demanded to know the “science behind” the threat.

“The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, decided to approve the closure of many nonessential businesses. That’s not because he’s opposed to lockdowns, he thinks the real problem is religious services.” 

(RELATED: Chris Cuomo Has Yet To Ask Andrew Cuomo About New York Nursing Home Deaths. Here Are 9 Questions He Asked Instead)

Carlson showed a clip of Cuomo saying, “If the religious leaders do not agree to abide by these rules then we will close the religious institutions — period.”

“Really?” Carlson asked. “Because in the country that we lived in in January, we had a First Amendment that said government will not get in the way of your exercise of your religion. People would have laughed at that. ‘We will close the religious institutions — period?’ Who do you think you are: God? You’re not: you’re some stupid governor of a declining state.”

Carlson noted that Cuomo is targeting services in Orthodox Jewish communities. They haven’t been playing along, to their great credit. Putting aside whether any of that is legal, what is the science behind it — the reported ‘science’ behind it?

Critics of Cuomo say that he should not have forced state nursing homes to take in 4,500 patients with COVID-19 earlier in the pandemic, as the Associated Press reported.

Cuomo issued the order to nursing homes and other assisted living centers March 25, according to the AP. He reversed that policy May 11. A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation also discovered that New York undercounted the number of deaths in nursing homes.

But the governor has blamed President Donald Trump for the nursing home deaths, suggesting he was following federal government guidelines on where to send nursing home residents infected with the virus. (RELATED: Andrew Cuomo Says He’s Through With Coronavirus Predictions)

The Fox News host said that de Blasio is not always so concerned about social distancing and lockdowns.

“What’s interesting is that just the other day, practically, Bill de Blasio said he wasn’t against mask gatherings as long as he agreed with the politics people were expressing,” Carlson continued.

Tucker Carlson: NY Times Threatening to Reveal Where I Live — ‘To Hurt Us, to Injure My Wife and Kids’


Reported by JEFF POOR |

At the close of his program on Monday night, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson revealed The New York Times had a story in the work that would divulge the location of his home, which could potentially put him and his family in harm’s way.

“Last week, The New York Times began working on a story about where my family and I live,” he said. “As a matter of journalism, there is no conceivable justification for a story like that. The paper is not alleging we’ve done anything wrong, and we haven’t. We pay our taxes. We like our neighbors. We’ve never had a dispute with anyone. So why is The New York Times doing a story on the location of my family’s house? Well, you know why. To hurt us, to injure my wife and kids so that I will shut up and stop disagreeing with them.”

Carlson reminded viewers that nearly two years ago, another such incident occurred when he was residing in Washington, D.C. An angry mob showed up at his home, forcing his wife to hide while the angry mob aligned with Antifa vandalized his home. He said the same could occur if The New York Times followed through with the story.

“Editors there know exactly what will happen to my family when it does run,” Carlson continued. “I called them today, and I told them. But they didn’t care. They hate my politics. They want this show off the air. If one of my children gets hurt because of a story they wrote, they won’t consider it collateral damage. They know it’s the whole point of the exercise: To inflict pain on our family, to terrorize us, to control, we say. That’s the kind of people they are.”

Tucker Carlson Asks the Ultimate Question: How Can Democrats Run the US When They Hate It?


Commentary By Joe Saunders | Published July 7, 2020 at 10:52am

It’s the question every American should be asking heading into November, but Tucker Carlson said it out loud. It wasn’t polite. It wasn’t politically correct. But it’s an answer every voter should know before casting a ballot on Election Day: How can Americans trust liberals to lead the country when they’ve spent the past months proving how much they loathe it?

In his monologue Monday night, the Fox News host, who has had his own share of run-ins with the violent left, used liberals’ own words and actions to back up his point, and contrasted them with President Donald Trump’s speech Friday at Mount Rushmore to drive it home.

Besides delivering a paean to the greatness of American history and the figures who created it — white and black, male and female — Trump slammed the Black Lives Matter riots that have taken place across the country. The anarchy under the guise of what the mainstream media blithely refer to as “mostly peaceful protests” has the ostensible aim of targeting alleged “systemic racism” — but the real target is the United States as a whole.

“Make no mistake, this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution,” the president said.

“In so doing, they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery and progress.

“To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol and memory of our national heritage.”

And for Carlson, those words said it all.

“Trump is the most dangerous to his enemies when he tells the truth,” the Fox News host said. “In fact, they’re his enemies precisely because sometimes he does tell the truth and he did the other day.”

Check out his full monologue here. It’s about 13 minutes long, but for anyone who missed it Monday night, it’s well worth the time. It contained Carlson’s own paean to the country, reminders of exactly why the United States is the place countless millions born elsewhere want to live.

About the 10:30 mark, Carlson zeroed in on Joe Biden, the man who spent 36 years in the U.S. Senate before going on to another eight years as vice president. Biden should be overflowing with gratitude for the country that has given him and his family a life in politics probably far better than he could ever have earned in the honest world.

And what did the man who’s sewn up the Democratic nomination for president offer in a speech supposedly celebrating this great nation’s birthday?

“A full-throated attack on the United States,” Carlson said.

Then he played a clip of Biden’s Independence Day message.

“Our country was founded on an idea, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created.’ We never lived up to it,” the Democrat said.

“Jefferson himself didn’t. He held slaves. Women were excluded.

“American history is no fairy tale. It’s been a constant push and pull between two parts of our character. The idea that all men and women and all people are created equal, and the racism that has torn us apart. …

“We have a chance to rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country.”

If it weren’t so laughable, it would be enraging.

Joe Biden is talking about a chance to rip up the “roots of systemic racism” in this country”? This is a man who’s spent his entire life in American government.

Biden spent the early parts of his career kissing up to the arch-segregationists who were the power of his party for so long, and now he’s spending the last years of it sucking up to the new segregationists of the Black Lives Matter movement. If there were systemic racism to be ripped up, Biden had a lifetime to work on it. In the vice president’s office, he had eight years working with the country’s first black president — so it really should have come up, if it were present.

But it wasn’t and it’s not. It’s another liberal lie that’s being used as a weapon to undermine the country at its foundations — exactly what could be expected from a group that has moved from political opposition to one doing its damndest to teach Americans to hate themselves.

Joe Biden and the modern Democratic Party that’s trying to install him in the White House can talk all they want about how much they “love” this country, but their deeds show the exact opposite. And Tucker Carlson called it out.

“It’s long been considered out-of-bounds to question a person’s patriotism. It’s a very strong charge, and we try not ever to make it,” Carlson said.

“But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can’t be avoided — these people actually hate America. There’s no longer a question about that. And yet paradoxically, at the same time, they desperately want to control America more than anything.”

Those are strong words, but the behavior of the Democratic Party and its supporters merit them. There was a time when this all could have been chalked up to fanatical opposition to the administration.

The lies of Rep. Adam Schiff that led up to the ludicrous impeachment trial, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Maleficient-level treatment of Trump, the endless propaganda of the mainstream media, was all rough stuff, but it was politics, and politics is no game of beanbag.

What the country has witnessed over the past month has been something different, and far more malevolent. It’s the difference between “opposition” and “resistance.” The Democratic Party chose the latter at the beginning of the Trump presidency, and the country is now seeing the fruits of that decision.

The fact is, the indefensible death of a man in police custody in Minneapolis has been used to unleash the worst, basest instincts of a sizable group of Americans twisted by their own ignorance into despising the country they should love. The Democratic Party has chosen them as a vessel to return to power in the White House and in doing so has betrayed its own apparent loathing for America itself — an imperfect country they will never forgive for its imperfections.

There are still months to go before Election Day, and it’s entirely possible there will be an epiphany of some kind on the Democratic side that puts a stop to the party’s descent into nihilism. (Contrary to all evidence, there are still millions of decent men and women misguided enough to identify as Democrats. You might even know a few.)

But it’s still a question every American voter needs to ask and answer before casting a ballot in November:

How can Americans trust liberals to lead the country when they’re bent on proving to the country and each other how much they loathe it?

And Tucker Carlson asked it out loud.

Tucker Carlson Loses Big-Name Sponsors Over His ‘Black Lives Matter’ Stance


Reported By Randy DeSoto | Published June 11, 2020 at 2:54pm

Fox News host Tucker Carlson lost some high-profile advertisers over comments he made earlier this week after he contended the current protests are “definitely not about black lives.”

The advertisers who have announced they are pulling ads from “Tucker Carlson Tonight” include ABC, whose parent company is Disney, T-Mobile and Papa John’s Pizza.

In a segment that aired on Monday, Carlson said, “No matter what they tell you, it has very little to do with black lives. If only it did.”

“If Democratic leaders cared about saving the lives of black people — and they should — they wouldn’t ignore the murder of thousands of black men in their cities every year.”

“They wouldn’t put abortion clinics in black neighborhoods,” Carlson said. “They would instead do their very best to improve the public schools and to encourage intact families.”

Carlson argued that Democratic leaders don’t even try to make these changes that would improve the lives of African-Americans.

“This may be a lot of things, this moment we are living through, but it is definitely not about black lives and remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will,” he concluded.

“At a moment like this, there is no advantage in cowardice,” Carlson said. “Tell the truth. And the truth is this is a good country, better than any other. Of course, we are flawed, but we are trying, unlike most places, and we have nothing to be ashamed of.”

Disney confirmed to Deadline that it will not be placing ads on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” going forward, noting that a third-party buyer secured the spots in the first place.

T-Mobile tweeted that it had not run ads on Carlson’s show since early May, but has canceled future ads.

“We will continue to support those who stand against racial injustice,” the tweet read.


T-Mobile

@TMobile

Of course. We haven’t run ads on Tucker Carlson Tonight since early May and have cancelled all future placements. We will continue to support those who stand against racial injustice.

2,241 people are talking about this

T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert also chimed in, tweeting, “Bye-bye, Tucker Carlson!”

Sherlock Ohms@SherlockOhms

Why do you still sponsor Tucker Carlson. I watched him for the last time last night. Vile

Mike Sievert

@MikeSievert

Same. We aren’t running ads on that show and we won’t be running ads on that show in the future. Bye-bye, Tucker Carlson!

789 people are talking about this


The self-described anti-bigotry advocacy group Sleeping Giants responded to T-Mobile’s announcement, encouraging the company to pull all advertising from Fox News, given the network “continues to push this type of rhetoric.”

In a statement to Bloomberg, Papa John’s said it will no longer be advertising on any opinion-based programs like “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Fox News spokesperson told Bloomberg that all the ads and revenue pulled from Carlson’s show have been moved by advertisers to other programs on FNC.

Tucker Carlson: Chinese Researchers Confirm Coronavirus Linked to Horseshoe Bat Studies at One of Two Wuhan Research Institutes (VIDEO)


Reported  |

On Tuesday night FOX News host Tucker Carlson reopened the case using information from a CHINESE study on the origin of the novel coronavirus.

The coronavirus came from either the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention or Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China.

The study concluded the deadly virus came out of local laboratories in Hubei Province. The smoking gun in the study is the link to horseshoe bats which are not sold in local markets and not native to Wuhan. In fact the closest colony is 900 kilometers away. There is no evidence horseshoe bats were sold in the Wuhan wet markets. The local labs used this bat specimen and the virus came from a lab in Wuhan.

Reports linking bats to the coronavirus started making the rounds back in January.

But a recent paper published in the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control and Prevention found the source of the coronavirus is a laboratory near the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan.

Via News.com.au:

Scientists from South China University of Technology in Guangzhou wrote and published a paper speculating that a centre for disease control near a Wuhan seafood market may be ground zero for the virus. Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao wrote that the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control and Prevention was the possible source because it “hosted animals in laboratories for research purposes”, including bats, and was “within 280 metres of the Huanan Seafood Market where a number of early infections were reported”.
In the paper, titled The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus, researchers explained that “41 people in Wuhan were found to have the acute respiratory syndrome and 27 of them had contact with Huanan Seafood Market”.
They wrote: “According to municipal reports and the testimonies of 31 residents and 28 visitors, the bat was never a food source in the city, and no bat was traded in the market.”
The research facility was also adjacent to the Union Hospital where the first group of doctors were infected.

This report was published in February.

Tucker Carlson reported on this tonight.

OPINION: Tucker Carlson Predicts America’s Most Divisive Woman Will Be The Democrat Presidential Candidate


Posted By 

URL of the original posting site: https://redrightvideos.com/tucker-carlson-predicts-americas-most-divisive-woman-will-be-the-democrat-presidential-candidate/

As the time until the next presidential election draws closer and the Democratic candidates start dwindling down, the question that sits in the back of everyone’s mind is, who will be the Democratic nominee?

Most people are thinking Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, or now at this point, it could even be Pete Buttigieg. But Tucker Carlson weighed in on the matter and said not to count this person out…and it’s someone who isn’t even in the race…yet.

That person is Michelle Obama.

According to the Washington Examiner,

“If you’re wondering who the Democratic nominee will be, don’t bet against Michelle Obama,” he said on Monday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Last week, the former first lady issued a statement claiming she has no interest in being president, but there are signs that’s not true.”

Carlson then pointed to several examples that have made him suspicious about a potential Obama bid, including David Axlerod’s attacks on 2020 front-runner and former Vice President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama’s refusal to endorse Biden in the race so far, and reports that the former president tried to convince his No. 2 not to enter.

Carlson continued, “If Obama had endorsed Biden, the race would be over … Obama hasn’t endorsed Joe Biden because he doesn’t want to. Why? Maybe he’s got other plans. Obama’s presidential memoir was also supposed to come out this year. Now, its release has been delayed until the middle of the Democratic primaries. In other words, at exactly the moment when Democrats will be thinking deeply about how to beat Trump, America will be talking about the Obamas. Coincidence? Maybe.”

“Maybe it’s also a coincidence that Michelle Obama just released yet another book last week, one that will require her, of course, to get on the road and talk to crowds … The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race, and gender, and class. Michelle Obama, let’s be honest, is one of the only people who could unite its warring factions.”

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.

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

URL of the original posting site: http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/insane-woman-defends-female-genital-mutilation-young-girls-tries/

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!

Jorge Ramos: ‘This is Our Country, Not Theirs’…Not a ‘White Country’ [VIDEO]


Written by Philip Hodges Philip Hodges

white country

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos said in February:

“I’m a proud Latino immigrant here in the United States. You know exactly what is going on here in the US. There are many people who do not want us to be here and who want to create a wall in order to separate us. But you know what, this is also our country. Let me repeat this, our country, not theirs, it’s our country.”

What exactly did Mr. Ramos mean by saying that this is not “their” country? Who’s the “our,” and who’s the “their?”

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Ramos said that he was talking about people who support the President. “The interesting thing is with the Trump administration and many people who support Donald Trump they think it is their country, that it is a white country,” he told Carlson. “And they are absolutely wrong.” He said that the country doesn’t belong to those people. This is our country, it is yours, it is mine and it is ours,” he said.

He went on to say that 27 years from now, the U.S. will no longer be a white majority country:

“This is not a white country, this is not their country, it is ours, and that is precisely what I’m saying… Look in 2044, the white population will become a minority, it will be a minority-majority country, that is precisely what I’m saying. Latinos, Asians, African-Americans, whites, it is our country, Tucker.”

Basically, if you’re someone who disagrees with Mr. Ramos, then regardless of where you were born, this is not ‘your’ country, and you should have no right to try to shape its immigration policies. But if you do agree with him, then it is your country, and you should have right to dictate immigration policies.

Officials announce proposal that would establish California as separate nation


waving flagPublished January 27, 2017 | FoxNews.com

URL of the original posting site: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/01/27/officials-announce-proposal-that-would-establish-california-as-separate-nation.html

A proposal for California to secede from the United States was submitted to the Secretary of State’s Office Thursday. The proposed “Calexit” initiative – its name borrowed from the UK’s “Brexit” departure from the EU – would ask voters to repeal part of the state constitution that declares California an inseparable part of the U.S.

A recent poll found that one in three California residents would support a possible secession from the U.S. due to their opposition to President Trump. No mention has been made of the president in the proposal. If the proposal qualifies for the ballot and is approved by voters, it could be a step to a future vote on whether the state would break away from the rest of the nation.trump-derangement-mental-disorder

Secretary of State Alex Padilla said the group behind the proposal, Yes California Independence Campaign, was cleared to begin attempting to collect nearly 600,000 voter signatures needed to place the plan on the ballot.

“In our view, the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children,” the Yes campaign’s website says.liberal-leftist-derangement-syndrom

Similar attempts to establish California as a nation, or break it into multiple states, have failed.

The proposed constitutional amendment, titled California Nationhood, would also ask voters to repeal language that states the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law. If approved, it calls for scheduling a vote in 2019 to ask voters, “Should California become a free, sovereign and independent country?”

“America already hates California, and America votes on emotions,” Marcus Evans, vice president of Yes California told the Los Angeles Times. “I think we’d have the votes today if we held it.”

The campaign must submit the valid voter signatures by July 25 to qualify for the ballot.picture2
