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.”

This Chinese spy balloon thing is pure absurdity

Do you remember during the Trump administration when photographers on the ground and commercial airline pilots were talking about a spy balloon over the United States that people could look up and see even with the naked eye, and that a media that hated Donald Trump wasn’t reporting? I don’t remember that, either, because it didn’t happen.

Of course we don’t need Tucker to tell us that, but here’s his take on the Biden administration’s response to a Chinese military aircraft casually floating over the entire United States. And, as we’ve come to expect from the liberal media’s track record, Trumpety-Trump-Trump-Trump on a Trump cracker with Trump sauce. Highlights include:

“By last Wednesday, February 1, it was spotted by civilians in the skies over southern Montana. A man staring out of of the window of an office building in Billings saw what he thought was a UFO. It was too small to be a moon, he said, and so he began to take pictures, which soon appeared on social media, and then almost immediately the airspace over Billings, over the entire town was shut down.

So it was at this point, when the existence of an unauthorized Chinese military aircraft over the continental United States became impossible to hide or deny, at that point, officials around Joe Biden finally decided to tell him about it. Now, we don’t know Joe Biden’s reaction to this news, but we do know his response. Biden did nothing.”

“So, the balloon shut down the airspace over Billings, Montana, including the airport, and as it moved east, commercial pilots said they were afraid of it, they were afraid of hitting it, so it’s funny to see the transportation secretary who’s in charge of all of this tell us it posed no threat … no threat to transportation. But the best is the dismissal of anyone who has concerns. It’s the Republicans again with their moonshine and their shotguns and extra chromosomes, thinking it’s okay to shoot down Chinese spy balloons, when every sophisticated person knows, Donald Trump himself knew, the best way to handle Chinese spy balloons, let them pass.”

“’Do you remember during the Trump administration when photographers on the ground and commercial airline pilots were talking about a spy balloon over the United States that people could look up and see even with the naked eye, and that a media that hated Donald Trump wasn’t reporting? I don’t remember that, either, because it didn’t happen.’ It didn’t happen, said the former Director of National Intelligence, and you can see why he thinks that.”

“Speaking on background to its shills in the media, unnamed officials explained that these Chinese spy flights were actually never reported to President Trump, or the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, or even to the secretary of defense. Why weren’t they reported? Because they weren’t important enough. They were ‘relatively minor territorial incursions’. Okay, so a Chinese military aircraft hovering over Texas, more than 1000 miles from the Pacific Ocean, is a ‘minor territorial incursion’… That’s what they said. It’s pure absurdity.”

“So, once again, the people who owe you the truth are lying to you, so all tonight we know for certainty is that the Chinese military just flew an aircraft that reportedly contained explosives over the entire length of the United States and got away with it. That seems like a bad precedent.”

Undercover Video Exposes Pfizer

It’s not gain-of-function. Oh no, it’s “directed evolution.”

Published

on

Tucker reports on video from Project Veritas, of an alleged Pfizer executive revealing some very interesting things. See below the post for a link to their Twitter account in addition to the usual video link.

“How powerful exactly are the big pharmaceutical companies in this country? Well, that’s a big question, there are a lot of ways to measure it, but here are a few ways you can measure it. In this country, big pharma can advertise its drugs directly to consumers, and that’s a little strange if you think about it, since consumers don’t prescribe drugs, doctors do, so why are the drugs being advertised directly to consumers? That’s allowed in only one other country on the planet, but it’s allowed here. So, it may not surprise you that in this country drug companies spend more on lobbying the Congress than any other industry, a lot more than any other industry, and they don’t do it by accident, they do it because it pays off.”

“Sometimes those products work, sometimes they don’t work, in some cases those products can injure you. But, no matter what happens, there’s nothing you can do about it, because politicians have given these companies complete immunity. If their products hurt or kill you, you can’t sue them. You’re not even really allowed to complain about it.”

“The pro-transparency news organization Project Veritas just released an undercover video of a Pfizer executive bragging on camera about how his company conducts a kind of Frankenstein science, manipulating covid viruses for profit, imperiling potentially the entire world, doing it in secret, possibly in violation of federal law.”

“That footage shows a Pfizer executive called Jordan Trishton Walker. He is, according to the documents Project Veritas posted, Pfizer’s Director of Research & Development for Strategic Operations & mRNA Scientific Planning.”

“One of the things we’re exploring is, why don’t we just mutate it ourselves so we can preemptively develop new vaccines? Now, what does that sound like, does that sound familiar? Well, it sounds a lot like the gain-of-function research you read about, the research that was occurring at the Wuhan lab just before covid broke out of the lab and overturned the world, and wrecked the US economy. That was the research that Tony Fauci lied about under oath. As The Intercept has reported, ‘Scientists working under a 2014 NIH grant to EcoHealth Alliance to study bat coronaviruses combined the genetic material from a parent coronavirus known as WIV1 with other viruses.'”

“Seven virologists told Intercept that the research ‘appears to meet NIH’s criteria for gain-of-function research’”

“It’s not gain-of-function, oh no, it’s ‘directed evolution’, so if you’re wondering how Tony Fauci was allowed to lie under oath and get away with it, the FBI did not raid his house, he was never handcuffed, maybe it’s because he used a different term for the same thing. At Pfizer, apparently, they’re just calling it ‘directed evolution,’ problem solved.”

“James O’Keefe of Project Veritas shows up and informs Walker he’s been recorded, and he’s clearly upset, and of course you can understand why.”

“But what’s so interesting is his first excuse is ‘I was lying,’ when in fact, he has explained in a very sophisticated and very believable way how Washington works. We just promise to hire the regulators, and then they don’t really regulate us. What you see happening in the defense industry with generals from the Pentagon happens in pharma, too.”
