Ukraine is not a democracy

Ukraine isn’t a democracy. It’s a State Department client state.

Tucker again expounds on who gets to make the sacrifices necessary to “stand for our values” and defend the non-democracy of Ukraine while these “values” and “sacrifices” continue to go undefined by those currently in power. Highlights include:

“They’ve been talking a lot about foreign policy for months. The White House has told us that if we’re ‘real Americans,’ if we love this country and aren’t traitors, then we will wholeheartedly support jumping with both feet into a highly complicated conflict in an obscure part of Eastern Europe where we have no national interest. Why? Because Ukraine’s borders are sacred, unlike our own, and if we’re good people, we’ll recognize that and not ask any questions.”

“So, that’s been their argument, that you may notice is not actually an argument.”

“You’ll note that not a single Republican leader has stood up to point out how insane all of this is and how completely divorced it is from anything that American voters actually care about.”

“Just the opposite. If you listen to Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, you would think that what the average, say, welder back in his home state of Kentucky really wants, more than a pay raise or an affordable vacation, or decent schools for his children, what he really wants is an end to Russian aggression against the brave people of Eastern Ukraine.”

“Oil tonight approaching $100/barrel. That’s not a small thing, and it doesn’t just apply to you if you drive a car. If you purchase any physical object, it’s almost certain that object had to be driven to you by someone who burns gasoline. So, the price of everything is about to rise, and in a country that just beneath the surface is a lot poorer than it looks, that’s not a small thing.”

“In fact, it’s going to be a tragedy for a lot of people. So, if you care about the people you governed, that would not be something you’d blow off with a flip of the hand as ‘the cost of our values.’ You’d care. What you certainly wouldn’t do, if you want to preserve domestic stability, is make it very very obvious that you don’t care at all.”

“It’s about democracy. Now, we’ve told you night after night, not because we’re anti-Ukraine or Pro-Russia, we’re agnostic on both, don’t live in either country, don’t plan to, don’t care to. It’s just a stubborn insistence on defining words accurately because they matter in this country. If you subvert the meaning of a word as fundamental as democracy, maybe you can tamper with the way we live here in the United States.”

“So, Ukraine, to be technical, is not a democracy. Democracies don’t arrest political opponents, and they don’t shut down opposition media, both of which Ukraine has done. And, by the way, Ukraine is a pure client state of the United States state department.”

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

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.”
