Now that Russia has invaded Ukraine: Our top 3 goals

The main thing that matters in any crisis is deciding what’s most important, creating a hierarchy of concern.

Tucker looks at what we should be prioritizing now that Russia has invaded Ukraine. Highlights include:

“What’s happening in Ukraine, whatever its scale … is a tragedy because war always is a tragedy and the closer you get to it, the more horrifying it seems. It’s the ugliest thing that men do, ever.”

“Vladimir Putin started this war, so whatever the context of the decision that he made, he did it, he fired the first shots. He is to blame for what we’re seeing tonight in Ukraine. The question is, once we’ve established that, and it’s obvious: How should the United States respond to what he has done?”

“The main thing that matters in any crisis is deciding what’s most important, creating a hierarchy of concern. So, until last night, the main purpose of our foreign policy was to prevent Russian from invading Ukraine. Obviously, that failed. At some point we should figure out why.”

“But what’s our top goal now? Well, there’s several of them.”

First and most obviously: Avoid a full-scale war with a nuclear armed adversary. And to be fair, very few people in Washington want anything like that. But that doesn’t mean we won’t have one. Wars often break out accidentally, or more often incrementally.”

“Mark Warner, the head of the Senate intelligence committee, just announced that Russia could be potentially close to triggering what’s known as Article 5 of the NATO alliance — that’s a collective defense principle. So, if Russia were to launch a cyberattack on Ukraine, Warner explained, an attack that affects nearby NATO members like Poland or Lithuania, then possibly every NATO country including ours, the United States, would be obligated to declare war on Russia.”

“But, Article 5 is not a mechanical mechanism. Human beings have to decide to invoke it, and the question is, is what the senator just described something that is worth risking a nuclear conflict over? And that is something we should pause very deeply to think about in the most sober possible way, and we hope that our leaders are.”

“But not all of them seem sober right now. Some of them seem reckless, and as usual, ignorant.”

Here’s the second goal: Keep the energy flowing. Cheap energy, we take it for granted, but it is the basis for all we have. No energy, no civilization.”

“Unfortunately, a huge percentage of Europe’s energy now comes from Russia and Ukraine. The European Union relies on Russia for roughly 40% of its natural gas.”

“The fact is that Vladimir Putin has the power to send Europe, and for that matter the United States, into an economic depression. Putin has the power to turn off the lights. So, where did Vladimir Putin get this power? Well, there are a lot of reasons, but a big reason is the climate people gave him this power.”

Finally a topic no one ever brings up: We must protect the US dollar. America’s power derives from its wealth. Rich countries get to do what they want. Poor countries must obey their masters, or they get invaded. We just saw that happen, that is the unchanging rule.”

“In this country, control of the US dollar is the key to our wealth. Our entire financialized debt-based economy rests on the unique privilege of issuing the world’s reserve currency. If the US dollar is ever replaced, we are in legitimate trouble. Our debt will come due, our government will go bankrupt, and millions of Americans will become poor immediately. So, this is the main thing we ought to be worried about, and it is a greater risk now than ever before.”

Upset about inflation? Shut up, racist!

There you are, complaining again about the precipitous decline in your standard of living. That’s always the first sign of a racist.

Published

Tucker lays out the symptoms of racism. Not judging people by their skin color, no, but recognizing what’s going on and complaining about it, that’s racism. Highlights include:

“Are you still not convinced that Joe Biden knows how to handle inflation? Did that rattle your confidence rather than bolster it? Then, honestly, there’s nothing we can do for you at this point. You’re beyond reach.”

“In fact, you know what you are, and you may have seen this coming? You’re a racist. That’s what we call people who continue to ask complicated long questions about Joe Biden’s economic program. They’re racists, and getting rid of them is America’s greatest problem.”

“Talking out of turn, reading your own script rather than the one that Chuck Todd provides you, is white supremacy. And that means, if you’re upset about food shortages or blackouts, you’re a racist, racist, racist, racist. There you are, complaining again about the precipitous decline in your standard of living. That’s always the first sign of a racist.”

“You don’t like crime? You don’t like litter? You don’t like inflation? You’re against public urination in New York City? You know what you are? You’re a bigot, pal. Stop complaining.”

“The problem is definitely not that we’re running out of energy to power our civilization, that’s not a big deal at all, and that’s why you probably didn’t read about the fact that the interior department just announced it is closing millions of acres to domestic energy production. Sorry, gone, can’t have the energy there. It exists, but you can’t have it. You know what we can do, though? Buy it from Venezuela. Yes, we can.”

“Twenty minutes ago, they told you Venezuela was a criminal regime. Now Venezuela’s going to provide the oil, not us, we can’t, that’s immoral ‘cuz climate change, existential, but Venezuela can.”

The Buffalo shooting: Biden mindlessly blames his political enemies

Joe is a divisive partisan bureaucrat bent on destroying America.

Published

on

Tucker looks at the democrat party’s reaction the the shooting in Buffalo last Saturday, and how their immigration policies may eventually backfire. Highlight’s include:

“On Saturday, Peyton Gendron, as you know, finally did what he said he would do. He committed mass murder, he opened fire on a crowd of strangers in a Buffalo supermarket. He killed ten of them.”

“So, how did the adults around him let this happen? In a country with functioning leadership, we would be asking that question. The signs of mental illness were certainly there. The people in charge missed those signs, or didn’t take them seriously enough, weren’t paying close enough attention.”

“In any case, they didn’t fix it, they let a killer slip through. So, what did they do wrong with Peyton Gendron, and how can we learn from it?”

“But that’s not at all what our leaders are asking tonight, hardly. Instead, they’re asking the only question that ever occurs to them: How exactly can I benefit from this? How can I leverage this tragedy to my advantage? How can other people’s suffering make me more powerful? It didn’t take Joe Biden to find a way.”

“January 6th and the Buffalo massacre. So, how is a political protest at the capitol related to a murder spree by a demented teenager in New York state over the weekend. What do those two events have in common, and who exactly are these unnamed ‘heads of state’ who are connecting this unconnected events in conversations with Joe Biden?”

“You may have wondered that, but don’t ask, because it’s not meant to be asked. It is instead a dream sequence, it’s a rhetorical device meant to connect everything that might challenge Joe Biden and bunch all of these things together in the same repulsive moral category.”

“The relentless exploitation of the internet to recruit and mobilize terrorism, okay. But can anyone show, has anyone ever shown that this specific case, Peyton Gendron, was ‘recruited and mobilized by the internet’?”

“Well, no, in fact. By his own account, he was mentally ill, he snapped. He’d been planning this for a long time, he did what his diseased brain commanded him to do. The internet did not make him do it, he did it himself. But even if Gendron had been ‘radicalized’ by what he’d read on the internet, what then, exactly? Many have been radicalized by what they’ve read.”

“Should we ban all books, all internet sites that ‘radicalize’ people? What exactly is Joe Biden saying here? Well, he’s saying that thanks to what happened in Buffalo over the weekend, you no longer have any any rights at all, including the most basic, which is to read what you want. After nullifying the First Amendment, Joe Biden moved to the Second Amendment.”

“So, because a mentally ill 18-year-old used a specific rifle to commit these crimes, you can’t have that rifle. Now, Joe Biden’s bodyguards can have that rifle, so can Nancy Pelosi’s, and of course they do. In fact, you pay for it all, But, they’re important, and you’re not, so you can’t.”

“So, because the people in charge failed to protect shoppers in Buffalo, you’re not allowed to defend your family, despite the fact you may believe your family is every bit as important as Joe Biden and his family or Nancy Pelosi and her family. But they’re not as important, so we’re going to defund the police and disarm you. That’s how it works now, sorry. And then Joe Biden got to the main point of his speech, which is that people who criticize his immigration policies are responsible for the violence you saw in Buffalo.”

“So, you lock the country down, lock kids out of their schools for two years, force them to get ‘educated’ on the internet, but it’s someone else’s fault that they’re ‘alienated.'”

“They’ve been hearing about the ‘great replacement theory.’ You’ve heard a lot about the ‘great replacement theory’ recently, it’s everywhere in the last two days, and we’re still not sure exactly what it is. Here’s what we do know for a fact. There’s a strong political component to the democratic party’s immigration policy. We’re not guessing this, we know this, and we know it because they have said so. They’ve written books on it. They say it out loud, ‘we’re doing this because it helps us to win elections.'”

“It’s something they’ve gloated about again and again and again and we think that’s wrong.”

“Maybe the funniest part is, they might not be right. The democratic party has decided that, rather than convince you, people who were born here, that their policies are helping you and making the country better and stronger, they will change the electorate.”

“But the funniest part is, they may be wrong, actually. Judging by recent polling, it turns out your average Salvadoran landscaper’s politics are a lot closer to Donald Trump’s than they are to Joe Biden’s and Nancy Pelosi’s.”

“But that’s not even the point.”

Watch as your democrat friends completely miss the hilarity of Joe Biden calling out spreading lies and violence for political power and profit, and leave us a comment.
