Tucker: What is going on here?

Most people don’t hate Kevin McCarthy as a man. But most normal people do hate the system that keeps promoting Kevin McCarthy for turning in a subpar performance.

Published

It’s old news from Friday, but here’s Tucker looking at media reaction to McCarthy’s totally appropriate difficulty being elected House speaker. They don’t seem to get why the process should be difficult. He HAS finally been elected Speaker, but thankfully not without having to make several important concessions.

Highlights include:

“Kevin McCarthy’s just lost the eleventh round trying to be Speaker, and it’s funny how we’re supposed to feel about this. We’re all supposed to be highly upset, outraged, appalled, on the verge of tears, about the fact that some of his colleagues are trying to make it hard for Kevin McCarthy to become the Speaker of the House.”

“But why is it so upsetting? It should be hard to become Speaker of the House in this country, very hard. It’s a big job, it’s one of the most powerful jobs in the world. It’s not one of those positions you give to elderly men who have campaigned from their basement. If you want to be the guy who’s second in line for the presidency in America, you’ve gotta work for it.”

“So, again, what you’re seeing here is the usual left/right ideological politics at work, but that is not all that is going on, because actually, most politicians are not very ideological, even the ones who claim to be. They wouldn’t know an idea if it got into the shower with them. In fact, a lot of them are agnostic about ideas. But the one thing that every politician has in common, every one of them, is every one of them wants to win elections, that’s the goal. And honestly, by that measure, Kevin McCarthy has underwhelmed.”

“The same team that was in place two months ago. How does that work exactly? If I’m a valet parker and I crash your car, you don’t give me another car to park until I take a driving lesson, right? Not in Washington. Have another car, a more expensive car this time. Because if there’s one thing Washington hates, on a bipartisan basis, it’s accountability, and unfortunately, the Republican party is no different in that.”

“No one is ever punished for failure or ever forced to explain how those failures happened. And as a result of that lack of accountability, no one ever improves.”

“Republican voters see the same people in charge producing the same mediocre results, paying a lot more attention to lobbyists than to them. That’s not democracy, actually. It’s the opposite of democracy, and watching this drives them insane. It’s a fair bet that most people don’t hate Kevin McCarthy as a man … but most normal people do hate the system that keeps promoting Kevin McCarthy for turning in a subpar performance.”

“By the time he becomes speaker, Kevin McCarthy will have learned a lot. Kevin McCarthy will have publicly acknowledged his failures. He will have been forced to face the people he has disappointed, both within the Congress and outside of it, and he will have promised to change. So, here we will have suffering, accountability, and repentance. Those are not bad things. No, those are the best things. Those are the wrenching life experiences that turn the mediocre into decent people.”

Tucker: Ep. 73 The Vladimir Putin Interview

Our goal is to stop this war, and we did not start this war in 2022. This is an attempt to stop it.

Published

on

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.”

Tucker: Fossil Fuels in Space?

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.”
