The Indispensable Tucker Carlson

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 11/27/2019 6:30:37 AM

Michael Blake, the vice-chairman of the Democratic National Committee, just paid Tucker Carlson a high compliment. He’s trying to defame, delegitimize, deplatform, and, ultimately, cancel him. That’s because the Fox News host is the most articulate spokesman for a set of principles and priorities that are important to middle America, but anathema to the bipartisan ruling class. It started when Blake was a guest on Bill Hemmer’s program discussing the Democratic presidential primaries. Blake used the platform to try and embarrass Hemmer by hijacking the conversation to criticize one of the network’s most popular hosts. “The core question is why the hell does Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson is the absolute best thing on Fox. He is the definition of the happy warrior. Watters is getting there but still needs some seasoning. I love Gutfeld's wicked sarcasm and sense of irony. I could listen to them anytime.

At the least, Tucker's open is must-see tv every night here. There's a very good chance I'll come back later for segments or go ahead and DVR the rest of the show.

He should do a road show with Mark Steyne like O'Reilly did with Dennis Miller. Some of the funniest moments on TV ever. The UFO obsession is weird. He must have some personal reasons for pushing those stories.

My favorite Tucker moments are when he gets Brit Hume to smile! I love Tucker. On rare occasions I disagree with him but I've seen him change his tone and tune when he realizes a guest is more logical than he had anticipated. last night he introduced someone he referred to as a friend, Patrick Kennedy, and asked him to talk about life after the decision to deal with his addiction. It was a serious interview and - for me - unexpected. Tucker is one of the most fair people on t.v. and I wish him and his family well. Ramona (the Pest)

I saw this segment with Bill Hemmer and the DNC vice-whackadoodle. Bill Hemmer actually shut him down pretty well. I was surprised. Usually, Fox News hosts let their dem guests blather on and on, with no push back.

So Blake is saying he wants to go on Tucker’s show to put him in his place? Good luck with that.

Yes, Tucker is absolutely the best. I can remember when he was paired with the overbearing Robert Novak and came across as the bow-tied wimp. Tucker has more than come into his own.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) raised more funds for her reelection campaign than all other Democrats in the House, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to federal elections commission data. Ocasio-Cortez raked in $1.42 million between July 1 and September 30, outstripping Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), who raised $1.26 million over the same period, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), who raised $1.26 million, the New York Post first reported. All three are up for reelection in 2020.

In Polar Express (2004), Tom Hanks kept urging “Believe!” without specifying what to believe in. Some of that same damnable over-secularization threatens to ruin Hanks’s new film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Hanks plays Fred Rogers, creator and host of the TV series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (aired 1966–2001 on public broadcasting), which taught life lessons to children. The movie re-creates those homilies by artificially re-creating scenes of the show’s videotape and alternating them with the real-life story of optimistic Rogers (Hanks) being interviewed by cynical journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys). Director Marielle Heller attempts a sensitive, almost spiritual evocation.

Officially, the Trump White House is still deciding whether or not to send a lawyer to the House judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearings next week. Unofficially, party insiders and observers say the decision has been all but made to continue stonewalling. Instead, they will follow the playbook of recent House Intelligence Committee hearings, when the White House refused to cooperate and instead used Trump loyalists on the committee to mount its defense. It is a strategy designed to maintain a status quo that would ensure a vote in the Senate against removing the president. And the strategy has so far kept the American public from shifting decisively in favor of impeachment.

Democrats, having run byzantine hearings in basement bunkers and on live television in the House Intelligence Committee, are set to move on to Judiciary Committee hearings. The purpose of this set of hearings is to craft Articles of Impeachment to be voted on by the entire House. One difference from the previous hearings that Democrats are touting is that in the Judiciary the White House can participate. It absolutely should not. According to the resolution that launched the impeachment inquiry, passing without one GOP vote, the White House may have lawyers present a

The recent sad spectacle of the impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives is but the latest example of the disdain the political Left shows for both substance and process in a quest for power. If the current crop of Democratic presidential hopefuls is any indication, that power will be exercised by pursuing divisive and destructive policies that will hurt America for generations. But excoriating those policies will require volumes best authored elsewhere. Consider first the impeachment circus. Whether the “high crime” is called quid pro quo, extortion, or bribery, the premise is fundamentally flawed.

Immigrants are what make America great. They should also run our foreign policy. That was the implicit message of former National Security Council official Fiona Hill’s testimony last week. “This is a country of immigrants,” the British immigrant said. “Everyone immigrated to the United States at some time in their family history. And this is what, for me, really does make America great.” Immigration, according to Hill, is the “essence of America.” Hill’s comment was in response to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) asking for her opinion about the criticism of Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman,
FBI Diagnosed With CIA Disease 5 replies

The Justice Department’s inspector general this month reprimanded the FBI for the manner in which it recruits and supervises its “confidential human sources.” To the layman, this seems about technicalities. In fact, it shows that one of the CIA’s deadliest dysfunctions now infects the FBI as well. This disease consists of choosing and rejecting sources for the purpose of indulging the agencies’ and their leaders’ private agendas rather than to further intelligence work on the public’s behalf. Necessarily, the language of the inspector general’s November 19 report is vague: “Ineffective management and oversight of confidential sources.”

Vice Admiral James B Stockdale was a naval fighter pilot about to be redeployed to Viet Nam War when he took graduate studies at Stanford, and became immersed in the philosophy of Stoicism, that helped him deal with his hardships when he was shot down, then held a prisoner for 7 years, becoming the Commanding Officer of the American prisoners at the Hanoi Hilton. He was one of the most revered and honored Naval Aviators of all time, recipient of the Medal of Honor.

I have repeatedly questioned the validity of medical journal claims in regards to politically charged issues like air pollution and climate change, as well as global warming here at AT. More recently, I showed how a major medical journal violates basic rules on scientific inquiry. There is another important problem with medical research as reported in medical journals and then often expanded by the lay press as big news: that medical journal articles are often proven wrong for unreliable results or promotion of treatments that are not beneficial or not any more efficacious than treatments they propose to replace.

The Democrats have twisted themselves into a Schiffian Knot, a modern-day unsolvable puzzle. When they plunged forward on their ill-fated impeachment voyage, they were destined to land on this surreal shore, even if their parade of bureaucratic interagency cheerleaders was even weaker than presumed. So they are in the bad place that can't be washed away with a few margaritas. They desperately want to impeach President Donald Trump, but they don't want to send this partisan presumption pile over to the Senate, where they can no longer control the list of witnesses, where hearsay will be inadmissible, and where narrative control swings to the Republicans.

A Texas educator once lauded as her district’s “Teacher of the Year” allegedly performed oral sex on a student in a classroom, authorities said. Randi Chaverria, a 36-year-old family and consumer science teacher at Round Rock High School, was arrested Tuesday after a student told police she had performed oral on him twice in October, according to an affidavit obtained by KVUE. Text messages sent between the student and Chaverria–who was named the Secondary Teacher of the Year by the school district in May–appear to be consistent with the teen’s accusations, investigators said.

There is no evidence that the Federal Bureau of Investigation tried to plant a spy inside President Trump’s campaign in the run-up to the 2016 election, an upcoming Department of Justice report will claim. The conclusion was reached by DOJ’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, who is leading an internal review of the origins of the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, according to The New York Times. The Times quoted a source who has seen a draft copy of Horowitz’s report, which is scheduled to be released on December 9.

A friend informs me of a young lady from his hometown and home church. Valedictorian of her classical Christian high school, she was a solid evangelical raised in an evangelical home, an evangelical church, and by evangelical parents. “Guess what she did for break?,” my friend asks me. “She headed to Iowa to volunteer for Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign.” Why anyone would think that Pete Buttigieg is qualified to be president is a mystery. An even greater mystery would be why a conservative evangelical girl would spend her college break knocking on doors for a cultural radical to be president of the United States. Actually, it’s no mystery.

After all, there have been many times when Bloomberg proved himself to be an extremely arrogant member of the Know-It-All elite. Case in point? Just watch this video in which Bloomberg basically explains that it's a great idea to tax the poor because higher taxes mean they have less money to hurt themselves. Or something.
