Tucker on Twitter

Episode 7 is now up and running, sports fans.


Haven’t watched it yet myself, but from what Margolis has to say about it, I’m thinking it’s liable to be another winnah.

In the latest episode of Tucker on Twitter, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson made a rather bold prediction about the 2024 election.

Carlson pointed out that the recently released WhatsApp messages from Hunter Biden to his Chinese business partner proved that Joe Biden was involved in (or at the very least knew about) Hunter Biden’s influence-peddling schemes. He called the messages a “smoking gun” that “would have been enough to cripple a normal president, would have been more than enough to keep a normal president from running for office again,” yet they had “virtually no effect on Joe Biden.” Why? Because the mainstream media relentlessly defends him from his scandals.

If there’s anything that the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine have proven, it’s that Joe Biden is a pro-war authoritarian. Emergencies like pandemics and wars allow those in power to behave like dictators in the name of “democracy,” and Joe Biden is no different, so our institutions will do anything to keep him in power.

“The people who control Joe Biden — Susan Rice and the rest — know they can continue to run our government, writing the press releases, formulating the policies, and they can do it effectively forever, as long as Joe Biden gets dressed in the morning, and of course that’s their strong preference,” Carlson explained. The problem is Biden’s failing mental health. His cognitive decline was easier to keep hidden during the pandemic but is now impossible to ignore, and it’s getting worse by the day.

“In a year or two, he will be gone completely, and there will be no hiding it,” Carlson said. “At that point, the Democratic Party will face a succession problem.”

“If Joe Biden is reelected next year and then forced to leave office during his term due to disability or death, that means Kamala Harris will become president of the United States,” he added. “And nobody wants that, not even her husband.”

Heh. Well, I mean, what sane, decent person would, really? On the other hand though, as near as I can determine nobody really wanted Biden either, and look where we all are anyway. Turns out election-rigging has consequences, I suppose. Until such time as those sham “elections” have been UN-rigged, then, my overall take on bothering to “vote” for “President” will remain a big, fat MEH.

Tucker on Twitter

Episode 6 dropped the other day; apparently, this new show will be a Tuesday-Thursday happenin’ going forward, or so it would seem if the current trend holds. Bayou Pete graciously posts a transcript which he says came from ZeroHedge (I haven’t checked the ZH site to see if it’s posted there, or whether it might be an ongoing thing for the ZH consortium, but I will). Rather than embed the Tucker Tweet here, this time I’ll just excerpt the first part of the transcript Peter ran as an appetizer, although having already established a separate and distinct category for the Tucker show I’ll most likely go back to the embedding next time. To wit:

There’s never been a candidate for president the media hated more than Robert F Kennedy Jr. You thought that title belonged to Donald Trump, of course it must. But go check the coverage: Trump got a gentle scalp massage by comparison. When he announced when Trump rolled out his presidential campaign in 2015 the New York Times waited until the 17th paragraph of the story to attack him. But as well-known as he is, the paper said at the time Trump is also widely disliked then they cited a poll to back it up. That was the attack on Trump.

Eight years later the Times attacked Bobby Kennedy in the very first sentence of the story:

“Robert F Kennedy Jr” the paper declared “announced a presidential campaign on Wednesday built on relitigating covid-19 shutdowns and shaking Americans faith in science?”

Shaking Americans faith in science – imagine if you’re an ordinary New York Times subscriber reading that over coffee in your pre-war rent-controlled duplex on Columbus Avenue. You’d think Bobby Kennedy just declared war on the enlightenment: ”my fellow Americans I have come to shake your faith in science. Join me as I drag our nation back to the medieval period.”

You’d be appalled; CBS News viewers likely were appalled in its coverage of Kennedy’s announcement. CBS denounced the candidates views as “misleading and dangerous.” The LA Times called him “a threat to democracy.”

At the offices of national public radio in Washington a full-blown Category 5 hysteria typhoon broke out. NPR devoted an entire segment to savaging Kennedy not just as a candidate but as a human being. NPR described him as someone who – for his own perverse reasons – has made “debunked and false and misleading claims that undermine trust in vaccines and who in his spare time provides moral support to crazed extremists Who rally under the banner of what they call Liberty or freedom.”

People magazine didn’t even bother to report a single word of anything Kennedy said at his announcement and instead wrote an entire story about how his relatives hate him. Kennedy’s younger sister Carrie, the magazine reported solemnly, does not approve of Bobby Jr’s harmful views…his harmful views.

Bobby Kennedy’s thoughts alone are evil enough to hurt people – that’s been the tone of the media coverage around Bobby Kennedy Jr for the past 18 years since July of 2005. That’s the moment that Kennedy published a magazine article suggesting there might be a link between the rise in diagnosed autism cases and the ever expanding schedule of mandatory childhood vaccines.

The day that story was published Kennedy’s reporting was considered so solid that two outlets ran it simultaneously: Rollingstone and Salon.com. Unfortunately neither one of them understood what they were up against. The Pharma Lobby rolled out the most ferocious public relations campaign in memory and both publications swiftly caved; both pulled the story and then disavowed it, groveling as they did.

No one in the National media bothered to explain why autism diagnoses had skyrocketed. If it wasn’t the vaccines – and maybe it wasn’t – then what was it? To this day there has not been a convincing explanation. Instead reporters just attack Bobby Kennedy. They’ve called him a lunatic and a Nazi. Instagram shut down his account. YouTube just last week pulled down a perfectly reasonable interview he did with Jordan Peterson citing unspecified misinformation.

And so on – Kennedy became the most censored famous person in the United States. At this point most Americans have heard a lot more about Bobby Kennedy Jr than they’ve heard from him. He doesn’t get many offers to speak from Big platforms.

Just checked over at ZH and sure enough, the transcript is available there, although the incredible proliferation of posting at the Hedge necessitated a bit of digging on my part to unearth it (the very last item on page 3, it was). Kudos to Tyler Durden for his fine work on what must have been a Herculean task of transcribing.

And then it hit me: ZeroHedge is neither in my browser bookmarks or Ye Olde CF Blogrolle, a most egregious lapse in diligence that has now been sheepishly rectified in both places.

Tucker on Twitter

Episode 5 is another real sockdolager, to appropriate the colorfully descriptive words of renowned linguist Huckleberry Finn.


I think it safe to say that being dumped by Faux News is probably the best thing that ever could have happened to Tucker Carlson; the gloves are now officially off, and it’s a delight to watch it as it happens.

Update! Just in case you weren’t aware of it yet, here’s a backgrounder on what Tucker is talking about.

So what is the much-vaunted Department of Justice doing, anyway? The DOJ wrote in a Tuesday letter to a Wilmington court that Hunter Biden agreed to plead guilty to two tax offenses, and “has agreed to enter a Pretrial Diversion Agreement” for lying on a gun application and possessing an illegal firearm.

To summarize, Hunter Biden is accused of foreign influence peddling and taking (and coordinating) bribes for himself, his uncle, and his powerful father to the tune of millions of dollars. He (and his father, who was then vice president) are accused of working to shut down an investigation into a Ukrainian oligarch’s oil company by getting the prosecutor fired. And today, the DOJ accepted a guilty plea on what The Washington Post calls “two minor tax crimes,” and admitted to the basic facts around the gun case, agreeing to enter “diversion programs” and serve two years probation.

At long last, Hunter Biden is in the clear. He has answered for his crimes, and his father has shown his commitment to the rule of law and the principle that no man is above the law. It’s all over.

At least that’s what Hunter’s legal team reportedly thinks, according to CBS. And it fits with congressional Democrats’ long-running claims that there’s nothing to see here, and even if there is it’s already been investigated and it’s fine, so let’s move on.

Tuesday’s plea deal is the equivalent of taking a watering can to a house fire and calling yourself a firefighter. They will do that anyway, of course. Far from a sign of justice to come, expect today’s ruling to serve as a cudgel for Biden partisans across the DOJ and the corporate media to hit outraged (and out-of-power) Republicans with. Justice served, indeed.

Stuff and nonsense. The Repukes won’t require any cudgeling, since they’ll be perfectly happy to follow their D卐M☭CRAT caporegimes’ lead here, as always—maybe puff and blow a little bit for the Enemedia cameras on how this whitewash proves that IMPARTIAL JUSTICE!!!™ is still alive, well, and functional in Amerika v2.0, just to keep up appearances—right before they quietly help their partners in crime sweep the whole sordid mess under the rug, never to be mentioned publicly again.

Tucker on Twitter, again

Episode Four drops—“Wannabe dictator”—and it’s a real doozy.


As Barry says, this one may well be his best yet. Money quote: “Just because he’s trying to put the other candidate in prison for the rest of his life for crimes he himself committed doesn’t mean he has a totalitarian impulse. C’mon, that’s absurd!”  Looks like I’m gonna need to set up a new category for these Tucker posts, I’m thinking.

Update! Annnd our new Tucker cat is a done deal. Be sure you have your sarcasm filter set on “High” for this one, folks; it’s so blistering, so caustic—particularly in the last third or so—that it could literally peel paint.

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."

David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
