No one should ever be rewarded for failure

You reward excellence, you do not reward mediocrity. And when you do, things fall apart.

Tucker looks at why Republicans were unable to deliver their red wave at the polls yesterday and gives his suggestions on what they should do about that if they want to win in the future. Highlights include:

“In a number of key races around the country, we still don’t have a vote total. In Arizona, for example, there is no declared winner in the senate race or in the governor’s race.”

“But, according to news reports, the official results may not be in for more than a month. Officials in Arizona told CNBC today that they are ‘prepared to work through Thanksgiving, and possibly Christmas, as well.’ That means results by New Years in a race that was held in early November.”

“That seems late. How late is it? Well, by comparison, results of the 1862 midterm elections, which were tabulated by candlelight without machines or even electricity in the middle of a raging civil war were cleared before the end of the week. That was the entire country. Arizona is a single state, which by the way is a fraction the size of Florida, which as you may have noticed, counted its votes in less than a day.”

“The state of our elections systems in many places is, indeed, pretty embarrassing, but so, honestly, were the results of last night’s elections. Republicans swore they were going to sweep, a ‘red tsunami’ … but they did not sweep, not even close to sweeping. The Republican party may, in the end, may take control of the House and the Senate, but only by a tiny margin, at best.”

“That’s great, but it was not the plan. The plan was really simple, it seemed easy a week ago. An unpopular president, a faltering economy, an open border, the looming risk of nuclear war … put all of those together, how could there not be a massive Republican win nationally?”

“Well, there weren’t. Joe Biden was not punished. In fact, he was out there bragging about himself today.”

“One obvious point, the people whose job it was to win but did not win should go do something else now. We’re speaking specifically of the Republican leadership of the House and the Senate and of the RNC. It’s nothing personal, some of them are no doubt nice people, but they took hundreds of millions of dollars to paint the map red, and they didn’t. It doesn’t mean they’re evil, it doesn’t mean they should be jailed, it does mean they shouldn’t be promoted. No one should ever be promoted for failure. If there’s a truly conservative principle in life, it’s the principal of the meritocracy. You reward excellence, you do not reward mediocrity. And when you do, things fall apart.”

“The mechanics of an election, they matter. In fact, they matter sometimes more than any individual running in the election. The way people vote makes a big difference to the outcome, and so, by the way, does access to channels of communication. Why does that matter? Well, because you can say whatever you want, but if no one hears you, you’re not really speaking, and that’s the case for Republicans, so often.”

“As of tonight, Republicans can communicate their message unencumbered on a single cable television channel and a handful of relatively low-traffic websites. The rest of the American media amounts to a gigantic filter designed to distort what Republicans are saying. So, if Republicans want to win elections, too, they might spend some money to fix that.”

“These are fixable problems. You can get your message out. You can force the other side, if you try hard enough, to agree on fair election rules. But you can’t do any of that unless you acknowledge these problems exist.”

How could any decent person possibly be on the side of the Chinese government?

How could any decent person possibly be on the side of the Chinese government, against the population of the country, the people, against human rights, against human decency?

Tucker looks at China’s shining model of how to deal with covid and why entire cities are still under lockdown and people still in quarantine when that’s no longer a threat. Highlights include:

“Here’s something that we didn’t know but now do. In the winter of 2020, Tony Fauci wanted to know how the Chinese communist party was responding to covid. They had covid, we had covid, he wanted to see what they were doing.”

“So, he sent one of his deputies, a man called Clifford Lane, to China to find out, and Lane seemed stunned by what he saw there – entire Chinese cities had been quarantined, the whole city. Huge numbers of people were forcibly locked inside their own homes, in some cases to starve to death. Secret police cruised the streets forcing pedestrians into windowless vans for the crime of being outside. Household pets, dogs and cats, were declared unclean and beaten to death on the sidewalk. It was a hellish dystopian scene.”

“But Tony Fauci was not disgusted, he was not appalled by the human rights abuses that Clifford Lane had seen in China. According to a new report in The Epoch Times, based on depositions that emerged this month, Tony Fauci was envious.”

“Who could be rooting for the secret police?”

“How could any decent person possibly be on the side of the Chinese government, against the population of the country, the people, against human rights, against human decency?”

“Who could root for the tank against the lone brave man standing in front of it? And the answer is, unfortunately, some people could be on the side of the tank. Some people could be on the side of the tank. Some people could support the oppressors against the oppressed, and in this country, many people do.”

“One of them is Tony Fauci.”

“The protesters are speaking for themselves — Haven’t we spent $60 billion to prop up the corrupt government of Ukraine ‘cuz they’re on the side of ‘freedom and democracy’ even though it’s not a free or democratic country? But that’s the pretext, we’re for freedom?”

“But here you have people saying, hey, I don’t want to be thrown in a concentration camp or starve to death in my own apartment and the Biden administration can’t even take their side?”

“Oh, the right to choose … right to choose abortion … what about the right to go outside or the right to choose whether to send your children to school or the right to choose what drugs go into your body, or the right to choose not to be thrown into a concentration camp? Are those viable rights, too? Are those also examples of bodily autonomy? Do the 1.5 billion people who live in China or the 340 million who live here, do they have bodily autonomy? No, they don’t.”

Tucker: This is a grotesque and filthy lie

Virtually everything NBC ‘news’ has told you about this shooting in Colorado is not only wrong, it is the opposite of the truth.

Published

Tucker looks at NBC’s and CNN’s continued coverage of the recent shooting in Colorado now that the shooter has claimed to be non-binary.

As you probably already expect, they’re still denying it and blaming people who oppose mutilating children, as if that had anything to do with it.

Highlights include:

“If you’ve been watching the ‘news’ recently, the one thing you know for certain about the accused gunman in the massacre in Colorado over the weekend is that he was a ‘crazed, right-wing, anti-trans extremist.”

“He did that because he was taught by right-wing media outlets to despise and fear the non-binary community.”

“Was her reporting right? Well, not entirely. Do you remember when Brandy Zadrozny told you several hundred times that the accused shooter, Anderson Lee Aldrich, was inspired by hatred for the non-binary community that he learned on this show, do you remember that? Well, actually, it turns out, we discovered last night, that Anderson Lee Aldrich is … drumroll, please … part of the non-binary community. He doesn’t hate them, he is one.”

“What it means is that virtually everything NBC ‘news’ has told you about this shooting in Colorado is not only wrong, it is the opposite of the truth. It is all a grotesque and filthy lie. It wasn’t ‘news reporting,’ it turns out to be the most transparent sort of political propaganda, and for once they have been busted flat out, in public, trying to sell political propaganda to an unsuspecting public under the guise of ‘news.’”

“It turns out it’s the town’s fault, too, because there are a lot of Christians, everybody knows, in Colorado Springs, so, gay people feel terrified there because Christians are dangerous. And all these terrified gay people were huddled together for safety when this Fox News-addled anti-trans bigot walked in and started shooting them for being transfolk.”

“Well, the only problem is, not all of the victims were gay. One of them, at least one of them, was at the club with his girlfriend. Details, details.”

“So, if you’re against genital mutilation of children or bringing toddlers to drag shows, you’re against the lgbtq community. Well, of course, that’s insane. There’s nothing anti-gay about that. Most gay people aren’t in favor of genital mutilation or bringing toddlers to drag shows. There’s nothing wrong with those opinions. They’re the right opinions, and all decent people understand that. What’s indecent, what is wrong, is lying about a mass shooting, which NBC did.”-
