Where are the workers?

What happens when you crush entire sectors of your own economy for neraly two years, and then, to compensate for your crime, you decide to inject trillions of dollars of freshly printed cash into the system?

Tucker questions what’s going on in our current economy, why it’s happening and where it’s going. Highlights include:

“What happens when you crush entire sectors of your own economy for nearly two years, and then, to compensate for your crime, you decide to inject trillions of dollars of freshly printed cash into the system?”

“Honestly, we don’t really know what happens when you do that because no one in history has ever been stupid enough to try it.”

“Political leaders devalue the currency for short term gain. In the end, this leads to long term collapse. ‘Debasing the coinage,’ that’s what they used to call it.”

“Every government devalues its currency at some point. They do it because it’s irresistible, you can’t not do it. If you do it, you get free money and you don’t have to raise taxes. It seems like a great idea, but in the end every government pays the price for doing this, or more precisely, its citizens do.”

“At the very same moment we have both too many workers and also too few workers.”

“That does not make sense. How can that possibly be happening? And again, we’re going to be honest and tell you we’re not entirely sure how it’s happening, no one is entirely sure.”

“But we can tell you, it’s definitely not natural. This is not how markets are supposed to work, this is not a good sign.”

“The incentives that we’ve constructed in this country, over a long time to be fair but accelerating recently, have a very specific effect. Those policies reward people who don’t want a job and they punish people who do want a job. What they do is they degrade work, they strip it of its inherent meaning.”

Jan. 6 committee continues to target political opponents

Nothing that happened on January 6th came remotely close to threatening our constitutional order, or preventing Joe Biden from taking office. People who claim otherwise are lying.

Tucker questions calling the people involved on January 6th “terrorists” when they were largely unarmed and, as far as they knew, abiding by the law. Highlights include:

“Nothing that happened on January 6th came remotely close to threatening our constitutional order, or from preventing Joe Biden from taking office. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying and should be forced to explain specifically how the mechanics of democracy were imperiled that day. But they never explain, they just yell louder and then they issue more indictments.”

“Where exactly is all this criminal white supremacy, this right-wing domestic terrorism that poses ‘the most lethal terrorist threat in the homeland’? Where is it? It doesn’t exist.”

“Many thousands of Americans are killed each year by violence, they’re murdered, but conservatives are not the ones who are murdering them. Look it up, it’s a ludicrous lie.”

“Many of the rioters were expecting war … really, were they? Then, why didn’t they bring guns to the war? The indictment doesn’t explain that. In fact, it tells us that as January 6th approached, these ‘dangerous conspirators’ who were anticipating war agreed not to bring firearms into the District of Columbia.”

“The whole point of this exercise is to redefine any opposition to the democratic party as domestic terrorism as they face defeat in the midterm election.”

“So, how do the rest of us respond as the US government redefines people who disagree with their political beliefs as terrorists? Well, there’s really only one way and it’s a nonviolent way, it’s the essential way. Refuse to play along. Don’t pretend they’re sincere, they’re not sincere. Tell the truth. Call authoritarianism what it is.”

Tucker: Biden’s new secret police force

The DOJ announced the creation of a new “domestic terrorism unit” that will target quote “anti-authority ideologies” — ideas that are now apparently illegal.

Published

Tucker examines the DOJ’s recent efforts to combat the greatest threat that doesn’t exist in our country: political conservatism. Highlights include:

“On his very first day as president, Joe Biden ordered federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to prepare a review of how the administration should fight terrorism. By last June, that report was complete. It concluded that after 20 years, Islamic terror is no longer the greatest threat to this country. Instead, the agencies declared, that domestic political extremism is ‘the most urgent terrorism threat the United States faces today.'”

“The Biden administration declared, ‘the most lethal elements of today’s domestic terror threat are political conservatives.'”

“This claim is ridiculous. On its face, there is no substantial right-wing terror threat in this country, certainly not in relevant terms, there just isn’t, and no one’s shown there is. The White House knows this, of course. So they’re working hard to create the illusion of that threat.”

“When you don’t have enough domestic terrorists to justify a political purge, then you just go ahead and create them, and that’s exactly what they’ve been doing. This week the campaign against this new American Al Qaeda entered a new and very ominous phase. Two days ago, the DOJ announced the creation of a new domestic terrorism unit. It will target “anti-authority ideologues.”

Now, keep in mind, this county was founded by people who were “anti-authority ideologues,” that’s why they created America and baked the idea of opposing authority so it doesn’t get too big and take over your life into our founding documents.”

“It’s not just the government, of course. It’s people acting on behalf of the government calling for the same thing, which is censorship of political opinions. What you’re seeing here is dangerous, far more dangerous than ‘domestic terror threat’ they’ve been bloviating about for the last three days. It contravenes the First Amendment. Under the First Amendment, the government cannot coordinate with private actors to censor free speech, period.”

“There is no domestic terrorism statute in the United States, so the interpretation of domestic terrorism is up to the FBI and the justice department. If there’s such a problem with domestic terrorism, then why aren’t they arresting people and charging them under existing statues? It’s because they’re making it up.”
