Elon bought Twitter, and you just became a little more powerful

People who want a monopoly on speech and thought hate Elon Musk, not because he’s a racist, he’s not, but because they can’t control him.



Tucker takes a look at why the media are so upset that Elon Musk purchased Twitter. Highlights include:

“Elon Musk bought Twitter today. That means that Twitter henceforth will be privately held, Elon Musk will determine what is allowed on the platform.”

“Now, why is this significant? Not because it signals the sudden arrival of oligarchy, as you’re hearing now. It’s too late for that, oligarchy is already here. Every major tech company is already controlled by billionaires, that’s been the case for a long time, so this is nothing new.”

“The reason today’s sale of Twitter is big news, the reason it could turn out to be a pivot point in our history, is that Elon Musk does not agree with the rest of the billionaires in the tech business. Unlike the leaders of Facebook, Google, Apple, Amazon, Elon Musk believes in free speech. He thinks everyone should be allowed to talk, including people who disagree with him.”

“One platform going rogue is enough to break the monopoly. That means you now have real options for expressing yourself. Going forward, if you disagree with the administration’s latest directive, you get to say so out loud to an audience. So, they’re up there every day from the podium, the biggest megaphone in the world, commanding you to hate this or that group, lecturing you about who’s good and who’s evil as if you’re a child and have no right to decide for yourself these things, the basic things.”

“But before today, you didn’t have a right to express your disagreement in public. If you had an opposing opinion, or even more dangerous than that, if you had countervailing facts that undermine their storyline, the tech companies would shut you down immediately. Never hearing about those people was the whole point of shutting them down.”

“But that’s over.”

“So, in the case of Elon Musk, we will see how this turns out. But, for now, Musk’s purchase of Twitter is the single biggest political development since Donald Trump’s election in 2016. It is certainly the most threatening challenge to the corrupt and incompetent leadership of this country. Now, that may not be obvious to everyone yet, but the people in charge certainly understand it.”

“What you just saw was the collective grief of people who thought they were going to b fully in charge, who totally believe they’d be able to rule without limit. You’re watching those people learn that actually, other people get to talk, too. And that realization is crushing to them; it’s the one thing they fear, and that tells you everything about why those people should never be near power. People who want a monopoly on speech and thought hate Elon Musk, not because he’s a racist, he’s not, but because they can’t control him.”

“‘Elon Musk is a threat to the weak!’ say the most privileged and powerful people in our society.”

“Really, are they really standing up for the weak? No, the weak are the people who aren’t allowed to say what they really think, those are the weak, and what you just saw are the strong demanding the silence of the weak. Everyone’s kind of figured this out, except the people demanding it. They’re so far up their own butts, you just heard them say that Twitter has a fiduciary duty to ignore its shareholders, block the deal, and continue Twitter’s decline in the market.”

“It doesn’t even make any sense, and because it doesn’t, you can be sure you’re watching a meltdown. And, of course, at the bottom of the meltdown is always the same charge: ‘He’s a racist!'”

Tucker: Viktor Orbán on Ukraine, Russia and Hungary

If any western country would send any boots on the ground, that would mean a direct war between the west and Russia.



Tucker and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán talk about the war in Ukraine, how Americans are being lied to about it, and about Hungary’s success as a nation. Highlights include:

“As the war in Ukraine completely reshuffles the world order and threatens to destroy human civilization, it’s striking just how little information Americans are receiving about what happens there. The nation of Hungary shares a border with Ukraine. Its leader, Viktor Orbán, the nation’s longest serving Prime Minister, has been dealing with the Russians all of his life. He grew up under Russian occupation. As a young man, he was arrested and thrown in to jail by Russian-backed police for his efforts to liberate the country. In his Prime Ministry, he’s dealt regularly with Vladimir Putin, whose nation supplies Hungary with most of its energy. Viktor Orbán understands Russian and Ukraine. So, two years after we last spoke to him, we returned to Hungry to sit down with Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and ask him, what exactly is happening in Ukraine right now?

“When you speak on politics in Russian … the number one issue, how to keep together the country… Freedom is just another issue, second, third, whatever. First, keep the country together, and that’s generated a different kind of culture and understanding of politics. That’s creating a kind of military approach, like they have.”

“They will not kill their leader, they will never give it up, they will keep together the country [sic] and they will defend it. We finance more, they will invest more. If we send more technical equipment, they will produce more. So, don’t misunderstand the Russians.

“Now, Putin is in power for long, long years [sic]. We forgot about how dangerous when there is no strong leadership or interregnum in Russian. The interregnum is the worst case possible… If this is the goal, it’s a mistake. It’s more than dangerous.

“If any western country would send any boots on the ground, that would mean a direct war between the west and Russia, and we are in a third world war immediately, so it’s a very dangerous moment now.

“Ideology is a very difficult thing, because it has an exclusivity. So, when the liberal says that this is the interpretation of society, it means that this is the only way to interpret a society. If you do differently, you cannot be a good man. So, we have another interpretation, we have a Christian and national, more traditional interpretation of human being and society, but they can’t accept it because it’s different.

“If you ask anybody on the street that any Hungarian leader who is elected freely can be a puppet of Putin or the Russians, they say it’s a joke, it’s impossible, because we are a sovereign country, and even to the Russians we deliver many times that we are sovereign.”

Tucker: Debate Night with Donald Trump

“I think he’s the most corrupt president we’ve ever had. And he also has the distinction of being the most incompetent.”



How’d you guys like watching the Republicans bicker among themselves last night? Meanwhile, Tucker was interviewing Donald Trump on why he wasn’t at the first Republican debate, Newsome, Epstein, the last election, Joe Biden and more. Highlights include:


“I felt it would be more appropriate not to do the debate, I don’t think it’s right to do it. If you’re leading by 50, 60, in one poll I’m leading by 70 points…. I’m going to have all these people screaming at me, shouting questions at me, all of which I love answering, I love doing but it doesn’t make sense to do them, so I’ve taken a pass.”

“I think they like me and I know they love my policies. I hope they like, me, too. You know, a lot of people say they don’t like me but they like my –I think they like me. But, I have never seen spirit like it is right now, and the reason is because crooked Joe Biden is so bad. He’s the worst president in the history of our country. I don’t think he’s going to make it to the gate, but, you know, you never know. But he’s a corrupt person.”

“Remember when I asked the question, ‘Why is it that the Mayor of Moscow’s wife [sic] is allowed to give you $3.5million’…I said the Mayor of Moscow’s wife, giving you $3.5million, what did you do to deserve $3.5million? To Biden…and Chris Wallace didn’t want me to ask that question… It turned out to be much more appropriate than people thought.”

“China pays this guy millions of dollars…. See, I think he’s the most corrupt president we’ve ever had, and he also has the distinction of being the most incompetent. And, I believe both. I mean, he’s both incompetent and corrupt. I actually believe he’s compromised, because China knows so much about him. They know where the money comes from, they know where it is, who paid it, they probably paid it…. He, in many ways, is a Manchurian candidate.”

“The Democrat convention, the last one … they had voter ID that was this big, it looked like a prison guard…You walked in, they had your picture, your this, your fingerprint … everything, the most incredible voter ID I’ve ever seen. That was to get into the Democrat National Convention.

We could go back and we should go back to all paper ballots, voter ID, same day voting. You know, France did it. France had mail-in ballots and it was terrible. Anytime you have mail-in ballots, you’re going to have massive cheating on your elections.”

“After the election was over, the RINOs got together with the Democrats and they redid the election so you couldn’t do it anymore. So, then I called the people…Yes, you could do it. In other words, they took the Voting Act and they redid it so the Vice President no longer has the power to do what I said he could do.”
