Tucker looks at how things are going in Europe with their current energy shortages. Highlights include:
“We are living in one of those moments where so much is happening all at once, and information about it all is so tightly controlled that huge, history changing events can occur, and in fact, are occurring right now and nobody seems aware of them. It’s pretty unsettling, actually.”
“Here’s one example. Europe is descending into poverty. So, the most advanced continent on the planet, the birthplace of western civilization, our civilization, is getting much poorer very quickly. It’s moving backward at high speed.”
“In Poland, families are standing in line for days to buy coal. Not in 1910, right now, tonight, cars queued up outside coal mines hoping for fuel. The French government has announced energy rationing this winter. Just the other day, France had so much energy that it exported it to other countries, it was a net exporter of energy. Now there won’t be enough heat in France for everyone in the country to stay warm. In the UK, 70% of restaurants are preparing to close, to go under. Why? Because when winter comes, they won’t be able to afford to keep the heat and lights on, etc, etc.”
“So, the question is, why is it happening? And the answer is extremely simple, there is an energy shortage in Europe.”
“The ‘Green New Deal’ means what it always meant. It means poverty, and the people pushing the new deal must’ve known that all along. They don’t actually believe climate change is an imminent threat. If they actually believed climate change was an imminent threat, an existential emergency, the first thing they would’ve done … would be to ban private jets. Oh, but no, to this day Al Gore still flies on private jets. Barak Obama owns tens of millions of dollars of beachfront property. He knows the oceans aren’t rising. Come on. So they’re all in on it. It’s a scam, but they don’t care, because they know they personally will escape the consequences of their own policies.”
“They’re not laughing anymore. The Europeans have discovered that the real threat to human civilization is not global warming, it never was global warming. The real threat to people is global cooling, otherwise known as winter. Far more people freeze to death every year than die of heat. In 2019, for example, 4 times as many people died of coal as of heat.”
“So, when temperatures in Europe begin to drop a few months from now, this is a huge problem, and that will be obvious to everyone. It’s not global warming, it’s global cooling. That’s what’s gonna’ kill your grandmother. And when everyone understands that perfectly well, a lot of things are going to happen. The status quo will crumble. Factories will close, unemployment will rise, disposable income will disappear, and you’re seeing signs of that already.”
“The same central banks that intentionally caused inflation, and they did, those same central banks are now hiking rates to destroy demand. The problem is, this isn’t a demand problem. This is a supply problem, and it stems primarily from the war in Ukraine. Because of that war, the west does not have enough energy to continue its economy or its society. Europe responded to that war by imposing sanctions that they knew would inevitably cause energy shortages. They knew it when they did it.”
“Did these sanctions actually hurt Russia? They caused food and energy shortages throughout the west. No, they didn’t hurt Russia. Russia today has more than enough energy, more energy than it can use or sell. In fact, Russia has so much excess natural gas that it’s simply setting it on fire. That’s right, ‘flaring it’, as they say. A Russian plant near the border with Finland is burning $10million worth o natural gas every day.”
“We could fix this problem. The solution to this catastrophe is very straightforward. End the war in Ukraine. Reestablish energy flows into Europe and save the global economy, including ours. Is Joe Biden doing that? Are other reckless western leaders like Boris Johnson doing that? No, they’re doing the opposite. They’re sending billions more from their dying economies to Ukrainian oligarchs, and for no good reason.”
“Are we winning the war in Ukraine? Have we bankrupted Vladimir Putin, like Joe Biden claimed we would? The ruble just hit a seven year high against the US dollar in June. Russia’s doing well. Europe is not doing well at all. Now Joe Biden is calling for an unconditional surrender from Vladimir Putin. Here’s the weird thing. By any actual reality-based measure, Vladimir Putin is not losing the war in Ukraine. He is winning the war in Ukraine, and Joe Biden looks at that says we won’t stop until you proffer an unconditional surrender. This isn’t bad policy, this is nuts.”

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.”

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.”
