If the US can’t do this, we will be poor

Fossil fuels aren’t just not bad. Fossil fuels aren’t just a net good. Fossil Fuels are the only thing that make the United States a rich country and not a poor country.



Tucker looks at how well other countries are doing with their own sudden shifts to ‘renewable energy’. Highlights include:

“Get rid of fossil fuels? Yeah, what then? Well, starvation, poverty, societal collapse.”

“Voters, it turns out, are not into any of those things, and so nothing that resembles the ‘Green New Deal’ is going to pass the United States Congress in our lifetimes provided this remains an actual democracy, which is to say provided the public has anything to say about how they’re governed. That’s a non-starter here, it’s never gonna happen by democratic means.”

“But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen, it doesn’t mean that ideologues can’t impose the ‘Green New Deal’ on weaker countries that are too poor to refuse it. And over the past several years, that’s exactly what they’ve done. So, the ‘Green New Deal’ has actually taken effect around the world, so we don’t have to guess about what would happen if it took effect here. We can know. That’s science.”

“Everything that’s happened in Sri Lanka and Ghana and the Netherlands is happening at the behest, not simply of ideologues, but of some of the largest financial institutions in the world. They want more of this.”

“It’s why Ghana has achieved a near perfect ESG Environmental Impact Score of 97.7. According to World Economic Research, Sri Lanka has an ESG score of 98.1, The Netherlands 98.7. So, the poorer you get, the more human suffering there is, the higher your ESG score. And that’s important because companies will not invest unless you have a high ESG score. Interesting. So, these countries have no choice.”

“How did that work? Well, like everything in South Africa, no one in America really wants to know. It’s their favorite country, it’s a huge success, what’s like like in South Africa for people of all colors?”

“Well, The Guardian, of all places, reported at the time, ‘Solar biomass and wind energy systems are popping up all over the country and feeding clean energy into the strained electrical grid’. So, their grid’s been falling apart since 1994, but no problem, the green energy ‘geniuses’ are going to save South Africa. How’d that work? Well, seven years later the Washington Post reports that South Africa regularly experiences ‘rolling blackouts … last eight hours or more, crippling economic activity and disrupting life in this nation of 60 million people.’ And that’s true, ask anyone who lives there. It’s falling apart.”

“This past June, the heads of three French energy companies called on the public to ‘Immediately reduce consumption of fuel, oil, electricity and gas amid shortages and soaring prices.’ Oh. Stop civilization. It doesn’t work. That same month, France’s president publicly begged Joe Biden to start producing more oil because the Saudi’s cannot make enough to supply Europe. So, only the Europeans have been dumb enough to embrace this. Unlike Ghana they can afford not to, but they are anyway out of some weird sense of collective guilt.”

“In the United States, our ESG score on environmental issues currently stands at 58. But Joe Biden, who buys into every stupid trend, wants to change that. It’s very important to get our ESG score up because we wanna’ be more like Ghana. So, at the very moment that Biden is sending our strategic petroleum reserve, which we own, he doesn’t, to his son’s business partners in China, he is vowing to end fossil fuels in this country and boost our ESG score.”

“So, let’s just be really clear. Fossil fuels aren’t just not bad. Fossil fuels aren’t just a net good. Fossil fuels are the only thing that stands between the United States becoming Ghana. Fossil Fuels are the only thing that make the United States a rich country and not a poor country.”

“We have the largest recoverable oil reserves in the world. If we can’t tap those, we will be Ghana, we will be poor. But Joe Biden doesn’t care, and so he is clamping down on our ability to extract them. And like the leaders of every other country driven into the ground by green energy schemes thought up by morons like Sandy Cortez, he’s taking no responsibility for the damage he has caused.”

“The problem is, he doesn’t know anything about refining or extracting or how the grid works, or anything about anything because he’s never had a real job, he’s worked for the federal government since he was in his 20s. None of these people have any experience doing anything. So, to get a lecture on the power grid or energy from people who have no idea what it is is a bit much and the topic is too important to continue to listen to their nonsense as we become poorer.”

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.”
