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.”

Undercover Video Exposes Pfizer

It’s not gain-of-function. Oh no, it’s “directed evolution.”

Published

Tucker reports on video from Project Veritas, of an alleged Pfizer executive revealing some very interesting things. See below the post for a link to their Twitter account in addition to the usual video link.

“How powerful exactly are the big pharmaceutical companies in this country? Well, that’s a big question, there are a lot of ways to measure it, but here are a few ways you can measure it. In this country, big pharma can advertise its drugs directly to consumers, and that’s a little strange if you think about it, since consumers don’t prescribe drugs, doctors do, so why are the drugs being advertised directly to consumers? That’s allowed in only one other country on the planet, but it’s allowed here. So, it may not surprise you that in this country drug companies spend more on lobbying the Congress than any other industry, a lot more than any other industry, and they don’t do it by accident, they do it because it pays off.”

“Sometimes those products work, sometimes they don’t work, in some cases those products can injure you. But, no matter what happens, there’s nothing you can do about it, because politicians have given these companies complete immunity. If their products hurt or kill you, you can’t sue them. You’re not even really allowed to complain about it.”

“The pro-transparency news organization Project Veritas just released an undercover video of a Pfizer executive bragging on camera about how his company conducts a kind of Frankenstein science, manipulating covid viruses for profit, imperiling potentially the entire world, doing it in secret, possibly in violation of federal law.”

“That footage shows a Pfizer executive called Jordan Trishton Walker. He is, according to the documents Project Veritas posted, Pfizer’s Director of Research & Development for Strategic Operations & mRNA Scientific Planning.”

“One of the things we’re exploring is, why don’t we just mutate it ourselves so we can preemptively develop new vaccines? Now, what does that sound like, does that sound familiar? Well, it sounds a lot like the gain-of-function research you read about, the research that was occurring at the Wuhan lab just before covid broke out of the lab and overturned the world, and wrecked the US economy. That was the research that Tony Fauci lied about under oath. As The Intercept has reported, ‘Scientists working under a 2014 NIH grant to EcoHealth Alliance to study bat coronaviruses combined the genetic material from a parent coronavirus known as WIV1 with other viruses.'”

“Seven virologists told Intercept that the research ‘appears to meet NIH’s criteria for gain-of-function research’”

“It’s not gain-of-function, oh no, it’s ‘directed evolution’, so if you’re wondering how Tony Fauci was allowed to lie under oath and get away with it, the FBI did not raid his house, he was never handcuffed, maybe it’s because he used a different term for the same thing. At Pfizer, apparently, they’re just calling it ‘directed evolution,’ problem solved.”

“James O’Keefe of Project Veritas shows up and informs Walker he’s been recorded, and he’s clearly upset, and of course you can understand why.”

“But what’s so interesting is his first excuse is ‘I was lying,’ when in fact, he has explained in a very sophisticated and very believable way how Washington works. We just promise to hire the regulators, and then they don’t really regulate us. What you see happening in the defense industry with generals from the Pentagon happens in pharma, too.”

The only people who liked Jeffrey Epstein were his friends, and some of them are clearly happy he’s dead

You don’t want to live in a country where it’s possible to murder people in federal lockup, cover up the killings and then get away with them.

Published

Tucker recounts the strange circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s death and investigation surround it. Why has it gone nowhere after 3 years, and why don’t the answers we have add up? Highlights include:

“On Saturday morning, August 10, 2019, William Barr was working in his home office when his chief of staff called to say that Jeffrey Epstein had just been found dead in his cell in New York City.”

“Barr was shocked and upset to hear this. His first reaction, as he recounts in his memoir, was to worry that some people in America might not buy the idea that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself. ‘No one’s going to believe it was a suicide,’ Barr fretted to his chief of staff, ‘There will be conspiracy theories all over the place.'”

“Now, that’s a pretty odd response, if you think about it. At that time, there was no way that Bill Barr could have known for sure how Jeffrey Epstein had died. So, you would think, as the Attorney General, his first concern would be finding out what actually happened. But, instead, his first concern was worry that the public might jump to unapproved conclusions about what happened. And, in some ways, Bill Barr was right to worry. Many Americans did not believe that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself, given the strange circumstances of his death.”

“You don’t want to live in a country where it’s possible to murder people in federal lockup, cover up the killings and then get away with them. That’s scary. That should not be allowed in this or any other civilized place. But in the case of Jeffrey Epstein, it appears that it was allowed, and on one level you can see why it was. This is one of those crimes that has no natural constituency pushing to solve it.”

“The only people who liked Jeffrey Epstein were his friends, and some of them are clearly happy he’s dead.”

“Why do so many public officials persist in claiming that Jeffrey Epstein attempted suicide in prison once before, on July 23, 2019? Now, that’s a very convenient claim if you’re trying to convince people that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, but there’s no evidence that it’s true. In fact, Jeffrey Epstein himself adamantly denied ever trying to kill himself, in prison or out. He denied this to his friends, to his lawyers, and to prison psychologists. He said, instead, that he was injured by another inmate.”

“Who moved Jeffery Epstein’s body, and who gave the order to do that? Epstein was discovered the morning of August 10 by a part time prison guard called Michael Thomas, who amazingly was the very same guard who discovered him in fetal position on the floor after his previous falsely reported suicide attempt.”

“But by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein’s body had been moved to the prison infirmary, that’s a clear violation of federal policy — who ordered that? And though Jeffrey Epstein had been dead for at least two hours when the guard found him in his cell, by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein was clad in a hospital gown.”

“That means that somebody, for some reason, cut away Jeffrey Epstein’s prison uniform and redressed his stiffening corpse in new clothes – Why would anyone do that? And then to make it even stranger, Jeffrey Epstein’s corpse was intubated. Air was blown into his lifeless lungs. It’s not clear why.”
