Tucker: Chicago in crisis

We ignore the real problems … which is that crime and criminals are being allowed to run amok.

Published

Over the past 12 months almost 800 Chicagoans have been murdered.

Nearly 800. In a year. In one city: Chicago.

This may be a problem.

In tonight’s episode, Tucker interviews Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez on the murder crisis in Chicago. Highlights include:

Lori Lightfoot: “Here is where I want to be starting tomorrow. You may walk outside the immediate proximity of your house. Fresh air is important, but you may not act like the city is not in crisis.”

“According to Lori Lightfoot, the city is in crisis — a basketball crisis. Meanwhile, there’s another crisis in progress. People continue to die in huge numbers in Chicago. According to an analysis by CWB Chicago, at least 50 of these killings this year were committed by criminals who were released early on bail — they didn’t need to happen.”

“Last year in September … University of Chicago students, encouraged by faculty members, surrounded the home of the school’s provost. They occupied the street in front of her house, they shut down traffic for an entire week. They demanded disarming and disbanding the school’s police department.”

“Now, in one of those twists of irony you really have to pause to savor, those students are demanding chaperoned rides home because their classmates are getting murdered because the policies they advocated for result in death.”

“No one’s apologized, no one’s learned anything. The politicians ruining the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago demand, above all, that you worship them like gods as people die around them.”

“Under the leadership of Lori Lightfoot, the city of Chicago is flying off the rails because of the violence that is allowed to go unchecked in every community throughout the entire city.”

“When everything revolves around this spirit of ‘wokeness’ and ‘racial inequality is the root of all evil’ in everything that we do in the city of Chicago, we ignore the real problems … which is that crime and criminals are being allowed to run amok.”

“My residents deal in the real world … We’re not a bunch of eggheads trying to figure out a sociological experiment. We are blue collar people who are just trying to raise families, go to work, come home and live the American dream regardless of what color, what origin, what have you, and that’s being taken away from them daily by people who think that this is some sort of game.”

Tucker: Politicians want war with Russia

The only question that matters is how does intervening in Ukraine help the core interests of the United States? And of course that is the one question no one in Washington is asking.

Published

Tucker asks the questions no one in Washington seems to be asking: What’s our business in Ukraine, and why? Highlights include:

“Just because something seems far-fetched, seems crazy, or seems totally destructive to core American interests doesn’t mean the US government won’t do it. That’s the main lesson at the moment we’re living in.”

“Biden is unpopular, he’s incompetent, and he’s desperate.”

“But more than anything, Joe Biden is weak. He is a pawn of his staff and the hard-eyed ideologues who surround him. Russian is currently involved in a border dispute with neighboring Ukraine. Many of Biden’s closest aides are pushing the United States to get involved militarily.”

“And among the many ironies here is that the Ukraine crisis was largely created by Joe Biden’s own aides and many people like them throughout all levels of the US government.”

“What is this really about? Of course it’s not about ‘democracy,’ for which they have zero respect.”

“Well, in part it’s a hangover from the lunatic Russia hoax that absorbed Washington for three years. Everything about Vladimir Putin is bad, therefore let’s have a war with him.”

“But there’s also a deeper cause here that’s rarely noted. For years Ukranian interests have pumped millions of lobbying dollars into Washington, D.C. to change American foreign policy in the region.”

“Tens of thousands of dollars a month to tell us that Russia is bad and we need to stand with Ukraine … ‘cuz democracy … even as we work to overthrow democracy in Ukraine.”

“The only question that matters is how does intervening in Ukraine help the core interests of the United States? And of course that is the one question no one in Washington is asking.”

“Putin is so bad, we’re gonna cut off natural gas to Western Europe in retaliation against him in December. We’re gonna freeze Germany and Luxembourg and that’s gonna teach Vladimir Putin.”

“If we challenge Russia on its doorstep, we will be defeated. That’s not an if, that’s a certainty. And if we are stupid enough to consider the use of nuclear weapons to rescue our conventional failure, well then, we’re courting the destruction of the known world.”

“We have one interest: That is to prevent a war from breaking out between Ukraine and Russia.”

Dems: Comply or Else

Assert your constitutional rights, and we will punish you. That’s the message coming from Democrats and their January 6th investigation.

Published

on

Tucker calls out the hypocrisy of the January 6th commission, subpoenaing phone and text records from uninvolved persons while shrugging off an announced planned insurrection for tomorrow as a peaceful demonstration.

Highlights include:

“If you’re planning to be in Washington, D.C. tomorrow, your nation’s capital, be careful.”

“Turns out a group of political extremists plans to shut the city down. We’re not guessing about this because they’re not very subtle about what they intend to do. They’re planning ‘disruptive direct action to end business as usual and dismantle this country’s core systems of government.'”

“If you’ve been paying attention for the past year … you’d probably assume our elected officials vehemently oppose this. Their whole job is to oppose insurrecting. Nancy Pelosi tells us that every day … but not in this case.”

“Turns out some insurrections are just fine. It depends on who’s planning on insurrecting.”

“Suddenly, it is a crime to do this, depending upon who you voted for.”

“If you plead the fifth, you’re guilty. What country is this? So, assert your constitutional rights and we will punish you.”

“What you just saw is far more imminently dangerous to our democracy than anything than happened on January 6th itself. It’s not even close, and yet it is by and large being ignored.”

“You don’t have to love Donald Trump to find all of this sickening and scary. Do you really want to live in a country where Nancy Pelosi and Benny Thompson, crazed partisans with no interest whatsoever in the United States Constitution, can seize your bank records, your text messages, your diary, simply because they don’t like who you voted for in the last election?”

“Most Americans do not want to live in a country like that. A country like that is called Haiti, but suddenly it’s America.”

“Other subpoenas from the January 6th commission to phone companies are in progress. They target Americans who have been accused of no crime whatsoever, much less charged with one.”

“The truth is going to come out. They cannot stop it. That is why we are asking for the government and for the judge to release these tapes and let the chips fall where they may. Let the public and let the media objectively look at the evidence here and make a decision about what really happened that day.”

“The truth is on our side. We are not hiding anything.”
