Why go the extra step to tell us that Ukraine is a model democracy when it’s not at all?

The United States cannot be a beacon of freedom, of light in the world, if we are not free.

Tucker contrasts Ukraine’s “democracy,” which is banning opposing political parties and news organizations, with what we should hold on to here in the United States. Highlights include:

“What exactly is democracy? Well, pluralism is the hallmark of it. In a democracy, citizens can have any opinion they want to have. They can express any opinion they want in public whenever they care to express it, including through mass media. If citizens are dissatisfied with their political leadership, they can challenge their leaders for office.”

“Now, all of these things are true in every free country in every period, always. These are not just features of democracy, these are prerequisites for democracy.”

“So, with that in mind, you should know about a political party in Ukraine called ‘Opposition Platform For Life.’ Over the weekend, the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, banned that party.”

“Having banned all opposition, he then seized control of the country’s media outlets. Zelenskyy signed a decree that combines all national television channels into a single platform that he controls. He described this as a ‘unified information policy,’ and it certainly is unified.”

“So, if all of these details seem shocking to you, if this is not the Zelenskyy you’ve heard about on the Today Show, then you may not have been paying attention to Ukraine. Zelenskyy has been solidifying complete control over Ukraine for a long time.”

“What we care about, what all Americans should care about, is what happens here in the United States. The United States is a beacon of hope and freedom to the rest of the world. How do we maintain that inspiring position? Not simply by sending people missiles, but by remaining free ourselves. The United States cannot be a beacon of freedom, of light in the world, if we are not free. So, that’s the first thing we do if we want to inspire and change the world, Ukraine included … is make sure that we stay free.”

“Why go the extra step to tell us that Ukraine is a model democracy when it’s not at all? Why are they doing that? Maybe because Ukraine has now has exactly the sort of ‘democracy’ they’d like to see here in the United States.”

“So, maybe you’re starting to conclude these people love Zelenskyy not because he represents the Ukrainian people, but because Zelenskyy is exactly the leader they would like to be, with wildly expanded war powers to make everyone who complained shut up at gunpoint.”

“So, murdering POWs is a war crime, so is castrating them, we’re not shocked by this. This happens in a lot of countries, Ukraine is not unique. Atrocities happen during war, every war, always, no matter what the neocons may tell you.”

“But this is a war that we are paying for. This is a war with moral implications. This is a war the White House is involved in at every level. So, when the Ukrainian government does something, we have an interest in knowing exactly what it is and what it means. But more than anything, we have an overriding interest and a moral obligation to keep the United States free.”

“So, when you see them admire someone who’s shutting down any opposition to him, you should pause.”

At least 26 states are reporting that half their retail stores are completely out of baby formula

Counter-revolutionary moms in this country are undermining America’s baby formula supply.

Published

Tucker looks at the baby formula shortage in America. As usual, the White House knows exactly whom to blame, but as usual, has no real answers. Highlights include:

“At a press conference back on March 24 of this year, Joe Biden announced that thanks to the regime change war he’s decided to voluntarily wage in Easter Europe, our country, the United States, will soon face food shortages. Food shortages are ‘gonna be real’, Biden said. Now, the reporters in the room dutifully transcribed the words and wrote their stories, but you may have missed it. You may not have even heard this ‘cuz there weren’t a lot of followup pieces about these manmade food shortages that Joe Biden was predicting, and that’s weird if you think about it, because food shortages are inherently a big deal.”

“As of tonight, at least 26 states are reporting that half their retail stores are completely out of baby formula. That would include the states of Texas, Tennessee, Missouri and Iowa and many others. So, these are major population centers without enough food for newborns. In Memphis and Nashville, 52% of stores have no baby formula. Houston and Des Moines are reporting similar shortages. In San Antonio, a city with an unusually high percentage of families with small children, 57% of all stores in the city have no baby formula.”

“So, you would think the Biden administration would do something about it, and they certainly could if they wanted to. They could do anything. These are the people who claim to have the power to control global weather systems, the power to bend human biology to their will, so nothing is beyond the scope of their powers. And yet in this particular case, Joe Biden is in no hurry to fix the problem. In fact, he joked about it today.”

“Okay, so Joe Biden does not read minds, but the question is, does anyone at the White House read newspapers, or watch television news? Supplies of baby formula were down at least 20% as far back as January. That was not hidden knowledge, it was public knowledge. It was out there, if you were looking.”

“’We were aware … back in February … we have had a team on this from the FDA and interagency process since then.’ Okay, so Joe Biden has been on this problem since February, so why is it still a problem? Why is it still impossible to buy baby formula in stores in San Antonio tonight? Well, the White House has an answer for that, too, and the answer is greedy mothers. They’re the problem … Counter-revolutionary moms in this country are undermining America’s baby formula supply. They’re ‘hoarding baby formula.’”

“It’s your fault, America’s moms, you and your piggish little babies, always thoughtlessly eating, eating,eating. Show some patriotic restraint and stop buying so much food for your kids, you greedy wreckers. That’s the White House position on the baby formula shortage.”

American Taxpayers to Give $40 Billion to Ukraine

Ukraine is the most important thing! Really? If you agree with that, you should not be sitting in the United States senate as a Republican.

Published

Tucker questions why a majority of Republican congressmen have joined democrats in voting for more military aid for Ukraine when our own country is rapidly running out of weapons to defend itself. Highlights include:

“Ukraine is the most important thing! Really? If you agree with that, you should not be sitting in the United States senate as a Republican.”

“And yet that’s their position. Of course, it’s Lindsey Graham’s position.”

“Let’s just take out Putin. Really? What would happen then? The country has 6,000 nuclear weapons. Would they be ‘unsecured’? You thought we had a mess on our hands when Saddam’s arsenals fell into the hands of lunatics and extremists. What would happen to those 6,000 nuclear weapons if we just ‘take out Putin’?”

“They don’t even think about it, they don’t care. They’re high on their own supply.”

“Since when are we fighting Russia? Well, since Putin stole the election from Hillary Clinton. Glad to see that Dan Crenshaw has signed up for this new campaign.”

“But you’ve got to wonder, at what cost? Not just the peril, the real peril that this could escalate into something crushing for the west, but what immediate cost to the United States and to our own ability to defend ourselves? All these people who ‘love the military,’ do they ever ask that question? Right now, Joe Biden and the US Congress have sent so much military aid to Ukraine that our country, the United States, is running out of weapons.”

“This is happening because senior leaders of the Republican party instantly bought the New York Times position on Ukraine, as they instantly bought the New York Times position on the BLM riots, as they instantly bought the position of the New York Times on the covid lockdowns. They didn’t question what they read, and the consequences, now we are short on weapons to defend our own country.”

“Now, no democrat goes against his own herd, ever. The first reaction of every democrat is always to read whatever talking points Nancy Pelosi provides. They never listen to the other side, they always go farther in one direction, and the Republican party is always led by people who join them.”

“Notice, they don’t answer. They just accuse the person asking the question of working for Putin. You’re against democracy. They don’t tell us how Ukraine is a democracy. They banned the opposition party — that’s a democracy? But, maybe there’s an answer. What is it? Stop name calling and answer the question.”
