Tucker: This is shameful

The government of Mexico, in the middle of a drug war, is taking better care of its citizens than Joe Biden is taking care of his citizens. And that is shameful.

Tucker questions why the US government continues to send untracked money and weapons to Ukraine, risking nuclear war with Russia, while seemingly doing nothing about China or our own problems at home. Highlights include:

“If we’re paying more for gas ‘cuz of ‘Putin’s price hike,’ why isn’t Mexico paying more for gas because of Putin, too? Why is inflation up when wages are down? This doesn’t make any sense.”

“So, if you want to answer those questions, you really have to look at government spending. Last month, Mexico’s government did not follow the Biden administration’s lead in sending its strategic petroleum reserve to China, they did not do that. Instead, here’s what Mexico did. They spent $2 billion in subsidies to keep gas prices lower for consumers. In other words, the government of Mexico, in the middle of a drug war, is taking better care of its citizens than Joe Biden is taking care of his citizens, and that is shameful.”

“Once we send these weapons to Ukraine, where do they go then? What happens to them? These are sophisticated and deadly weapon systems.”

“Well, no one knows where they go. No one’s keeping track.”

“US officials, Biden administration officials have admitted that to the Wall Street Journal. ‘Once US equipment is handed to the Ukrainian government, US officials said, they have little direct knowledge of where that material goes, relying on the Ukrainian government for such information. The administration hasn’t agreed to allow American military troops, who could conduct some oversight, into the country.’ Huh. So, you send billions to Ukraine in the middle of a war and then you don’t bother to find out what happens to it? What will happen to these weapons? Well, the Czech defense minister knows. He has said these weapons, some of them will be smuggled out of Ukraine.”

“Your tax dollars are now paying the salaries of Ukrainian government bureaucrats. In all, your congress has approved more than $50 billion for Ukraine. That includes $7 billion in food assistance and health care, along with $9 billion for ‘economic support’, whatever that means. There’s also $2 billion for refugee assistance. So, just as we did in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

“We’re sending bales of $100 bills into a war zone and hoping they find the right pockets. Again, this is nuts, and yet leaders of both parties agree we have to keep doing it, much more of it.”

“What does the ’cause of liberty’ have to do with Ukraine? Well, very little. Last February the Ukrainian government shut down opposition media, then they arrested the leader of the main opposition party. Now, President Zelenskyy has decided to combine all television stations in Ukraine into a state owned propaganda ministry in order to combat ‘misinformation.'”

“Now, what is that? Well, I’ll tell you what it’s not. It’s not the profile of a free country. Not even close.”

“Is Vladimir Putin more of less communist than, say, Sandy Cortez? More or less communist than, say, Joe Biden’s domestic policy? Is he more committed atheist than they are? Is Putin throwing Americans in jail for attending political rallies at the capitol? Is he trying to confiscate the rifles from your bedroom? Is he sterilizing children in the name of ‘trans-liberation’? Whatever his many faults, no, Vladimir Putin is not doing any of that. As for his ‘apparently limitless international ambitions,’ ask yourself, is Vladimir Putin recolonizing Africa right now? Is Vladimir Putin trying to build military bases in the Caribbean and South America? No, he’s not, but another country is. That would be China, Joe Biden’s patron. Putin wants Crimea, he may succeed in getting it, but it is China that’s on its way to controlling the world.”

“The most dishonest, the most power hungry people in the United States are the very ones yelling the loudest for a war with Russia. These are the people telling you that Vladimir Putin is a war criminal bent on world domination. Why are they saying that? Why are they suggesting Vladimir Putin’s going to take over Europe? That’s not true, but why are they saying it? Well, there’s a reason. A reason that has precisely nothing to do with saving lives or making Ukraine a better country.”

What the Trump raid was really about

Indicting Donald Trump is a very big step, not simply because a lot of people like him and he’s the former President, but because indicting him at this point would be to reveal that this entire thing, and by ‘thing’ we mean our justice system, is just transparently political.

Tucker looks at what didn’t make sense about the recent FBI raid on Donald Trump’s home in Florida.

Highlights include:

“No honest person could believe that the raid on Donald Trump’s home last week was a legitimate act of law enforcement — it was not. Even the Biden administration didn’t really bother to pretend otherwise. The official explanations that we have heard for the raid make no sense at all. It doesn’t matter how forcefully they are repeated by the media, they’re nonsensical.”

“For the sake of argument on our show, we’re gonna say that it is, in fact, true, and that Donald Trump did, in fact, have boxes of classified documents sitting in his cellar. Let’s say that’s true. What would it mean? Well, what it means depends in part on what the documents were. Did those documents contain meaningful information? Should they have been classified in the first place? Is there a good reason the rest of us should not have been allowed to see those documents? Now, you never hear those questions asked in public, but anyone who lives in Washington knows perfectly well they should be asked in public, a lot, because in Washington virtually anything can qualify as an official state secret, and often does.”

“If that is true, would it justify what happened? Would it justify sending a large team of federal agents to shut down the entire southern tip of Palm Beach to raid Mar-A-Lago on a weekday? No, it wouldn’t. So, one of the laws they’re telling you that Trump broke doesn’t even have criminal penalties attached to it because it’s not serious enough. Federal paramilitaries don’t show up at your house when you violate the Presidential Records Act.”

“There was endless huffing on television about something called the ‘rule of law’ and how absolutely no one is above that, no one, not even a former President. We’re informed of this by the same people who paid rioters to burn down our cities, the ones who eliminated bail, the ones who encouraged tens of millions of foreign nationals to ignore our federal immigration statutes and move to our country permanently at public expense as a reward for breaking our laws. But, keep in mind, no one is above the law.”

“It’s exactly what it looks like: a show of force against the opposition leader by the head of state and his personal bodyguards. If this happened in any other country, it immediately would be denounced as the act of a dictator.”

“Now, superficially all of this is about Donald Trump, and on some level it is. Permanent Washington does not want Trump to run again. Of course, it’s their greatest fear, and they’re doing all he [sic] can to prevent it. It turns out democracy was too important to let voters choose their own president. But if you take three steps back and consider what’s actually going on, you’ll see that none of this is really about Donald Trump the man. It’s about power, and that means it’s about crushing and humiliating anyone who gets in the way of people who want to retain power.”

“Indicting Donald Trump is a very big step, not simply because a lot of people like him and he’s the former President, but because indicting him at this point would be to reveal that this entire thing, and by ‘thing’ we mean our justice system, is just transparently political. It’s just a means to an end, a means to power, and people know that at this point. They’ve watched it. They understand what’s happening, even people who don’t like Donald Trump, even people who didn’t vote for Donald Trump and don’t want to vote for him in 2024. They know, and they can’t un-know, and that means that we are at this point on the edge of something unprecedented, and something awful.”

Tucker: They don’t care about you at all

Democrats don’t care about inflation because they’re rich and it doesn’t affect them.

Published

Tucker gives his analysis of the Democratic primary in New York City, where it’s incumbent vs incumbent because of a new redistricting. Remember that Futurama episode in which two identical politicians were running against each other? It’s kinda’ like that, except not funny.
“Highlights” include:

“If you’re an incumbent member of Congress, pretty much the last thing you ever want to do is to debate a primary opponent in public. As a sitting member, you already have every possible advantage, unless you drop dead during a speech or get drunk and take your clothes off on a commercial airplane, you are very likely to be reelected to Congress.”

“So, a televised debate cannot help you. It is all risk and no upside.”

“But occasionally there is no avoiding it. Democrats held a primary debate in New York City last night, they had no choice. Both the candidates in this race are incumbent. Thanks to a court decision that redrew congressional boundaries, the two most powerful members of the New York delegation are now running against each other for the same seat.”

“What was very interesting and what tells you a lot about the Democratic party is how these two candidates talked about their personal accomplishments and their goals for the country.”

“Now, we should tell you, having watched it, that figuring out exactly what Maloney and Nadler were trying to say was not easy. These are not spry, articulate people. They’re not magicians with the English language.”

“But at one point, Nadler gathered the strength to boast about his greatest accomplishment in the Congress: That would be impeaching George W. Bush, twice. Obviously, Nadler meant to say Donald Trump, not that he can remember what decade it is. But what he meant to say is not really a consolation for Democrats watching at home. The problem here is that Jerry Nadler and Carolyn Maloney … neither of these candidates have anything to say.”

“What’s interesting is what Carolyn Maloney didn’t mention as a top priority, and that would be the economy, inflation. And it’s interesting because every poll taken shows that inflation is the number one issue that actual Americans care about. So, why wouldn’t Carolyn Maloney, who is a politician after all, can probably read a poll, why would she not include inflation? Well, it’s possible she’s not aware it’s happening.”

“So, these are the issues that the leaders of the Democratic party and the party’s donors, many of them in San Francisco and New York, care about. They don’t care about inflation because they’re rich and it doesn’t affect them. In other words, they don’t care about you at all. And by the way, this isn’t just true of longstanding establishment figures in the Democratic party like Jerry Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, it’s everywhere. It’s endemic, it’s in the fabric of the party itself. Even people who want to join the club repeat the same lines.”

“So, no wonder Democrats are unpopular. They have nothing to offer. They haven’t updated their files. They believe it’s 2005. You see this in foreign policy particularly. They are living in their heads in a world in which the US wields the world’s most powerful military backed by the world’s strongest economy and can do whatever it wants just by telling other people to obey. So, like Joe Biden, you just tell Russia ‘don’t invade Ukraine!’, and of course it won’t, we’re America. You just let China know that we back Taiwan and the entire 75-year-old dispute over that island will be settles forever. They really believe that. They have no idea of this country’s relative place in the world order because they don’t know anything about reality as it stands right now.”

“How out of touch are they? Well, the Democratic party’s main ‘radical’ right now is Sandy Cortez of Westchester. How radical is Sandy Cortez? Well, she spends her days defending the ‘intel’ agencies and neocon foreign policy, and the big banks. So, if you’re ‘revolutionaries’ are reading scripts written by the World Economic Forum, maybe they’re not actually very revolutionary. Maybe they’re defending the status quo, and that’s exactly what they’re doing, and they’re doing it because they have no other plan. The sad truth is the people who run the Democratic party have just given up. They’ve given up on the country and given up on the people who live here.”
