In Defense of Tucker Carlson

The goal [of the Democrats] is not to preserve Obamacare. Again: They voted to scrap Obamacare. The goal is to undermine the legitimacy of our system; in this case, of the Supreme Court; so that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris can pack the court full of partisan Democrats who will rubber-stamp their program. Again: It’s about power.

Tucker Carlson

During these troubled times there has been one strong, sane and steady voice on cable television: Tucker Carlson (of FOX NEWS). He comes on TV every weekday, hammers the left for their lies, exposes their lust for power, and demolishes their narratives.

Stalin

How are we to interpret so complex a game as that described by Stalin?

It was a case of the same lies and official corruption that drove the Ukrainians to revolt in 2013-2014. Why would Belarusians be any different? Even the Russian people are becoming agitated. Protests in Siberia and the north of Russia led the Kremlin to a desperate countermeasure — the poisoning of Alexei Navalny with nerve agent.
