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.”

Tucker: Ep. 73 The Vladimir Putin Interview

Our goal is to stop this war, and we did not start this war in 2022. This is an attempt to stop it.

Published

on

The interview that’s had most of your “legacy media’s” panties in a twist all week has finally happened.

I don’t remember anyone making a fuss when Dan Rather interviewed Saddam Hussein, just sayin’.

Tucker Carlson gets Vladimir Putin’s take on, among other things, the current situation in Ukraine, how it started and possible resolutions, Russia’s relationship with China,the world economy, and a look into the future. Highlights include:

“After 1991 when Russia expected that it would be welcomed into the brotherly family of civilized nations, nothing like this happened. You tricked us. I don’t mean you personally when I say you. Of course I’m talking about the United States. The promise was that NATO would not expand eastward. But it happened five times. There were five waves of expansion. We tolerated all that. We were trying to persuade them. We were saying, please don’t. We are as bourgeois now as you are. We are a market economy and there is no communist party power, let’s negotiate.

“The events in the Middle East, in Iraq, we were building relations with the United States in a very soft, prudent, cautious manner. I repeatedly raised the issue that the United States should not support separatism or terrorism in the North Caucasus, but they continued to do it anyway. And political support, information support, financial support, even military support came from the United States and its satellites for terrorist groups in the Caucasus. I once raised this issue with my colleague, also the president of the United States. He says it’s impossible, do you have proof? I said yes, I was prepared for this conversation, and I gave him that proof. He looked at it, and you know what he said? I apologize, but that’s what happened. I’ll quote, “Well, I’m gonna kick their ass.” We waited and waited for some response…The CIA replied, “We have been working with the opposition in Russia. We believe that this is the thing to do and we will on doing it.”

“…In 2008, the doors of NATO were opened for Ukraine. In 2014, there was a coup. They started persecuting those who did not accept the coup, and it was indeed a coup. They created a threat to Crimea, which we had to take under our protection. They launched the war in Donbas in 2014 with the use of aircraft and artillery against civilians. This is when it all started… They launched a large scale military operation, then another one. When they failed, they started to prepare the next one. All this against the background of military development of this territory and opening of NATO’s doors. How could we not express concern over what was happening?”

“Our goal is to stop this war, and we did not start this war in 2022. This is an attempt to stop it… No, we haven’t achieved our aims yet because one of them is de-nazification. This means the prohibition of all kinds of neo-Nazi movements. This is one of the problems that we discussed during the negotiation process, which ended in Istanbul early this year…and it was not our initiative, because we were told, by the Europeans in particular, that it was necessary to create conditions for the final signing of the documents.”

“Further on, the president of Ukraine issued a decree prohibiting negotiations with us. Let him cancel that decree, and that’s it. We have never refused negotiations, indeed. We hear all the time, is Russia ready? Yes. We have not refused. It was them who publicly refused. Well, let him cancel his decree and enter into negotiations. We have never refused.”

Tucker: Fossil Fuels in Space?

The IPCC and all these so-called scientists from NASA, NOAA, and all of them are not doing their due diligence.

If fossil fuels come from fossils, why is there oil and natural gas on other planets? Tucker interviews Dr. Willie Soon on the climate, sun activity, and the current state of science. Highlights include:

“In the United States, we often refer to our main sources of energy as ‘fossil fuels’. Oil, natural gas, coal, they’re ‘fossil fuels’ because they come form fossils, ancient organic material, forests, jungles, plankton, dinosaurs. Held under the ground for millennia, they transform into oil, gas and coal. Everybody thinks that’s true. On the other hand, there’s evidence that maybe it’s not the whole story. If that’s where fossil fuels come from, if that’s how hydrocarbons are made, then how come they’re found so deep under the oceans and at the top of the Earth? How come one of Saturn’s moons, according to scientists, has more oil and natural gas than Earth? Were there dinosaurs and planktons and forests at one point on one of Saturn’s moons? Probably not. So, if all hydrocarbons aren’t from fossils, where are they from and why isn’t this commonly known, and what are the implications of it, and what does it tell us about our modern climate change policy?”

“It’s the sun, actually, that does a lot of this. The glacial, like, this period called Little Ice Age from about 1300 to 1900, you know, very cool, and then there’s a bit of a warm period from 880 to about 1200, you know, it was warm. I mean, you can grow wine in England, right? And now you cannot grow wine, right? /Things like that. I mean, Greenland was green back then, but now it’s full of glaciers, ice is coming in, so what are you talking about exactly?”

“There’s another effect that is very, very important. It’s basically because the sun, the earth is forced to go around the sun, and then the orbit changes ever so slightly because of perturbation from all the other planets… Jupiter, Saturn, and even Venus, and Mars, they are actually controlling what we do. And the moon as well is very important. But that other factors [sic], the orbits plus the changes of the sun by itself, between how bright, how dim it is. These two factors can explain just about everything that we know.”

“This year, just two months ago, we published two more papers, convincingly show that even the thermometer data that they show you is not what it is. It’s actually not measuring ‘climate’, it’s measuring urban heat and island changes…If you go to the inner part of the big city…You go to inner cities, much warmer than outside because of concrete retaining all the heat, or you change all the surfaces, the surface becomes impervious, which means there’s no breathing, no water going in and out… What we show is that it’s not a phenomenon just on local signs. You average over this, you can see the effect all over the northern hemisphere.. And they tell you this is global temperature.”

“The IPCC and all these so-called scientists from NASA, NOAA, and all of them are not doing their due diligence. They are putting you…very bad quality data products. Not only that, they hide it. Some of them it’s so difficult to get the data.”
