Clarifying counterbattery

Tucker fires back at his maleficent Deep State detractors.

TUCKER CARLSON: We knew there was a reason leaders hid the January 6 tapes

One of the hallmarks of people who are telling the truth, in case you were wondering how to tell the difference, is that people who are telling the truth are calm. (They) don’t wave their hands around and make wild accusations. They don’t need to do that. It’s enough to say what they know and if honest people turn out to be wrong about something they have claimed, they’ll admit it. They don’t double down on false. They made a mistake and that’s okay. It’s not like they’re claiming to be God.

Liars behave differently. Liars are touchy, sometimes to the point of hysteria. They’re hiding something. That’s the whole point of lying and they’re worried you’re going to find out what it is. Liars are fragile because over time, lying makes you weak and afraid and has the same effect on countries by the way.

We’re living through one of those clarifying moments. Actually, we’re thankful for it, where we’re learning exactly who the liars are. On Monday, we showed you unreleased videotape from January 6. It proved, that tape proved, that three of the most important claims our leaders have made about that day were untrue. Their claims were lies. We were not shocked to discover that. We knew there was a reason that congressional leaders had been hiding the tape and that reporters in Washington weren’t demanding to see it. They were lying to us, obviously. That’s why you hide things.

But what was actually surprising, what we can’t quite get over even now, is how they responded when they were caught lying. They didn’t seem embarrassed. They didn’t apologize. They weren’t even curious to learn more about what actually happened on January 6. Let’s see the tape. No, they don’t want to see it. They exploded in rage. And then as liars tend to do, they doubled down.

They told the same lies they’d been caught telling, but with even greater aggression this time. Shut up. It’s midnight, they said, as the sun rose behind them. Who acts like that? Well, sociopaths do and in this case, the sociopaths turned out to be both Democrats and Republicans. The commitment to lying in Washington is far deeper and more bipartisan even than we realize, and we follow this stuff for a living.

Well, sure. Of COURSE they did. I mean, what else would they do? This is who they are, this is what they do.

Now, you sometimes hear people say that the whole partisan system is an illusion and that underneath the manufactured debates, the leaders on both sides are, in fact, secretly united in a common love of money and power and the deception required to get them. And honestly, we can never really bring ourselves to believe that. It’s just too dark. But now we do believe it because we have seen it.

And now—thanks to you, Tucker, and a dogged determination in pursuit of the truth that does credit to the values falsely proclaimed by pretty much everyone else in your fallen, badly-degraded profession—many, many more of us all across the nation have been forced to confront that raw, bruising truth themselves. No small thing, that.

And yet, here’s the thing: Leaders in both parties, the party that (“QAnon shaman” Jake) Chansley voted against and the party he voted for, have said nothing, not one word about the implications of this videotape, the implications not just for Chansley, but for our Constitution and our country going forward.

Instead, oh, how dare you show this? What is clearly exculpatory evidence! Again, it’s not just Chuck Schumer, it’s Republican senators Kevin Cramer, Mike Rounds, Chuck Grassley, John Thune, Lindsey Graham, of course, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, needless to say, Kelly Armstrong, all went after us. We’re not whining about that. We don’t care, actually, but it just tells you everything about the way things actually work. They’re not loyal to their voters. They are loyal to each other, and they’re willing to lie, really lie and crush people. Mitch McConnell, Thom Tillis and BLM superfan Mitt Romney, all weak men – and like all weak men, vicious men – were especially angry.

We invited Schumer on, McConnell, anybody is always welcome to come on our show. If we got something wrong, tell us how. If you think we altered the tape in some way, tell us how.

But they won’t, nor will they answer the most basic question, which is: why should a non, demonstrably nonviolent man, who literally said a prayer of Thanksgiving for police officers on the Senate floor, how was that man ISIS? How was he a domestic terrorist? How is he a threat to the republic? Why is he in jail for four years? Shut up. Pull that show off the air. 

They won’t answer any questions, but we have a question, which is: How, in a free country guided by the Constitution, were these people allowed to withhold evidence from Jacob Chansley’s lawyer? How could that happen?

The answer is simplicity itself: first, “fundamentally transform” said country into one no longer anything remotely resembling “free,” via, among all too many other things, rendering said Constitution entirely impotent and irrelevant—incrementally, over not just years but decades. Once that’s done, the rest will surely follow, as night follows day.

Which is precisely what happened. After what I’ll henceforth be referring to as The Carlson Revelations, none but a co-conspirator, a willful ignoramus, or a straight-up, insensate goddamned fool can plausibly deny it any longer. Not without discrediting themselves—fully and for all time, beyond any hope of reform or redemption—as one or the other of those three things.

Bottom line: the facts are in, the evidence before us clear, comprehensible, and abundant. Unpleasant though they are, further debate about those facts is worse than a waste of time—neither necessary, nor desirable, nor even excusable. Such bootless distractions are now the exclusive province of either the ill-intentioned or the just plain stupid, and nobody whatsoever else.

It’s clobberin’ time.

  1. Here’s a contradiction that still bugs me about Shaman/Viking Guy.

    He himself had to know the truth. He himself had to know he was escorted peacefully through the Capitol, Capitol Police by his side the whole time, who could have easily have stopped him. They didn’t. They even supposedly opened locked doors for him.

    So he tells his lawyers he’s innocent and relates the story to them. That’s where my conundrum comes in.

    His lawyers had to know there were these videos existed. Everyone knew they existed, but the public weren’t allowed to see them.

    So why didn’t his lawyers DEMAND they give them the tapes. Myself calling for the tapes to be released means far less than if his lawyers, in a Court of Law, in front of a Judge, demand they be shown. Did they demand that? Why didn’t the Judge make the prosecution release them to the defense? If they didn’t demand them why didn’t Shaman seek different lawyers. If the Judge was just corrupt why didn’t the lawyers appeal the case upwards? Did this even go to trial or did the lawyers trick Shaman into pleading Guilty?

    This leads to some disturbing issues.
    Was his lawyers in on it? If so, why did he stick with them? Was the Judge corrupt? Then why did they not appeal the case? Does that mean the Judges AND the lawyers were just in on it? So, once again, why didn’t Shaman seek different lawyers?

    Or was Shaman just in on it and everyone walked away from what was Theater from the first moment he entered the Capitol until the last day of his court appearance and now right through his “incarceration”? Is he really even in jail? Or is he back at a desk at the FBI/CIA.

    Just another Ray Epps who simply got disappeared from the records until these videos came out. Or another Officer Byrd who shot Ashli Babbitt and was never officially identified.

    Oh, and given what these tapes showed, I’d like to see more video of the events surrounding the murder of Ashli Babbitt and Roseanne Boyland.

    1. Is he really even in jail?

      Yes. He wasn’t in on it. He is a political prisoner. His sentence, of one was even warranted should have been public service for a day.

      There is a gulag in DC full of people that have been unjustly jailed for 2 years, no trial, no bail.

      1. He had a “trial”.

        How would you know he is really in jail?

        When an undercover FBI Agent is “caught” in a drug gang sting do you think they go to jail?

            1. Ask Musk, he’s asking for him to be released.

              A better question, why do you think he is not in jail?

              You do know he is a Navy veteran, that he has a mother.


              I’m at a loss why you think this is fake. You have to believe Tucker is in on the fake as well.

              I don’t know that you’re wrong, I just don’t see any reason to think this guy is not in jail.

              1. Tucker does not have to be in on it. He could be fooled like the rest of us.

                The thing about Shaman Guy is that no one had ever mentioned him before that day. He just suddenly showed up as the Face of QAnon. Don’t you think someone dressed like him that was supposedly going around to all the protests for a year would have showed up on the blogs and memes?

                Second anomaly. WHY were the Capitol Police escorting him around the building and even opening locked doors for him. Why did they let him into the Chambers?

                Third anomaly. I saw a video on at least as early as Jan 7 with him walking into the Chambers with a Capitol Policeman by his side and they were making small talk. When he gets inside there is a guy in camo sitting in the floor with “blood” on him while he’s reading his cell phone. When Shaman sees Bloody Guy they exchange hellos as if they knew each other. Then Capitol Policeman says something along the lines of “Ok don’t take too long now and remember, this is Hallowed Ground so don’t break (or harm) anything”. That just seems incongruous.

                IIRC the film clips Tucker showed of Shaman Guy had no audio. It’s the audio part I heard that throws everything off kilter.

                I will say something else. Tucker showed a brief clip or picture of Chansley in an orange jump suit and he seemed way smaller than the Shaman Guy. It was so brief and quick that I am not as sure on this part and could be just my imagination.

                1. The thing about Shaman Guy is that no one had ever mentioned him before that day.”

                  Actually, kenny, he WAS pretty famous before that. I remember seeing video of him at several different protests here and there over the last several years, although I can’t recall what specific causes they were all about. Seems like some of them were even Left ones, so of course they weren’t calling him “QAnon shaman” back then, either.

                  1. So, a possible Leftist was tasked as the “Right Wing QAnon Shaman”.

                    That doesn’t sound a little off?

                2. As Mike has already said, the Shaman Guy had been seen before, repeatedly.

                  And he didn’t call himself “Q anon”, that was something the crooks in the gov cooked up.

                  OK, at least I understand your theory being bolstered by the parading around. But I think it’s incorrect.

                  I can’t answer your questions. There is simply nothing the feds do that surprises me, and that includes “helping” a protester to get good video footage. They didn’t count on this being released.

                  1. Ok perhaps he wasn’t necessarily FBI, but he seems to have been duped in some sort of way.

                    Perhaps he was a “known wolf” loon the FBI “trained” towards the target then.

                    Like how they convince “Jihadists” to plan attacks and then “save us” by arresting them.

                    That would seem to fit the scenario well.

                    ‘Look here’s a loon who is all for FREEDOM! We can turn him into an alt-right loon and get him to “attack the Capitol” pretty easily!’

                  2. Q Sent Me.

                    That was the message I saw post J6 on signs he was supposedly holding up.

                    Easily photoshopped of course.

              2. The Mom thing on the other hand is evidence to the contrary of my point.

                I had seen something along the lines that the family didn’t support him and were upset with Tucker’s release. IIRC you posted it. Perhaps I misunderstood. Let me go searching.

                1. That’s the family of Sicknick, who got paid off to go along with the policeman killed con.

      2. But Barry you did not address my point about his Defense Strategy.

        He knew they had video because someone was videoing him as he walked through. Also, the Prosecution was using selective clips from video to try to show his “guilt”. So, why did he and his defense team of lawyers fold and just let him go to prison? Why didn’t they appeal and/or demand the Court make the prosecution produce the full videos?

        Or otherwise get some better lawyers.

        1. I have no idea what he knew and I’m sure you don’t either, including what video was available. There are camera’s all over and no one knows where they are.

          Why did he fold? My guess is he did it for the same reason people like General Flynn did, because the entire federal government is against you and no one is going to help. So you plead out to get the best you can get.

          1. I know he knew he was being filmed because he was actually “playing to the camera”. It was a handheld video from someone following along with him. THAT’S why there is Audio.
