I was frankly shocked by Tucker Carson’s courage last night; he’s not going to be getting a lot of cocktail party invitations from the cream of the beltway conservative establishment anymore. If you missed Carlson’s epic denunciation of the big DC establishment think tanks – the likes of the Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute and Competitive Enterprise Institute -- do yourself a favor and spend the next six-and-a-half minutes watching the video embedded below. He points out that Google, Facebook, Twitter and the others are all enjoying special legal protection that enables them to get away with censoring conservatives, and that the biggest and richest conservative think tanks support

I await the commentary of "all" my favorite conservative talk show hosts, who both support, speak at, and have advertisements from these conservative think tanks and organizations. This is about all of them. Or, will they all quietly collude to keep silent for not wanting to bite the hand that feeds them. I marvel at Tucker Carlson for his fearlessness to take on even his "own." Stay tuned.

Near as I can tell, the Koch brothers are not actually conservatives. They are quite confusing with some libertarian ideas, but it would seem that the 'cheap labor, open borders' part is also important to them, more important than the USA retaining anything like it's original founding principles. I stopped thinking the Koch brothers were good guys at least 4 or 5 years ago. They are NOT good people.

The truth is coming out! Could this be one of the factors that so many Republicans are retiring? They can see where this story is going. When all the corruption proof starts to come out out the Bidens.Clintons,Hawaiians, and basically every other crooked Pol in DC, don't you think quite a few so-called Republicans will be swept up in it? Lee,Roberts,Graham,Sessions to name a few have all had unexplainable actions or inaction around certain issues. Were they being 'Epsteined' too? Buckle's going to be a bumpy ride! And I'm glad we've got a street fighter as President. He will take a shot or two to open up the opportunity to expose ALL of them. I pray for his health and safety.

We all know there's a swamp. It's a huge swamp that covers almost the whole landscape of Washington and beyond. What Tucker is doing is just what we need. The exposure on all sides. Americans will no longer be divided along political lines. We can get our country back by going after the betrayers, period, without concern over supporting or protecting a political party or politicians.

The DC Swamp is infested with Leftwing critters and Rightwing critters, all fighting over the ever increasing money pit that is the Federal budget. Just like the UniParty, they take turns at the trough, pigging out when they can. The greatest thing that President Trump can do is eliminate most of the Departments that make up the Executive Branch and move the remaining Departments throughout the Red States, thus decentralizing the power structure of the Bureaucrats.

I'm a fan of Tucker and a regular watcher. But I don't agree with him on a few of his regular features that he presents. One of these is his obsession with UFOs. The other is his well intentioned but misguided hostility to the large social media and search companies like Facebook and Google. I don't doubt that there are people at these companies that block or demonetize groups and posters that they disagree with politically. The problem is that they are a private company and can literally chose to show or not show whatever they decide is in the best interest of the business. They can't violate the norms of violence or criminal enterprises that may try to post on their site but beyond that should have the First Amendment right to present the information they chose. This is in contrast to government controls over free speech which are, with some clear exceptions, unconstitutional. Because of their ubiquity and utility they attract a lot of people to use their services. If you don't like what they do you are free to chose another search engine or you can start your own. This is all the Heritage Foundation and other right leaning think tanks are protecting by supporting the section 230 language with additional provisions that spell out the goal of achieving neutrality and discouraging arbitrary censorship. As stated in Forbes magazine: Most important, most critics of Section 230 do not advocate total elimination of the law. Rather they simply want the platforms to treat their users neutrally if they want protections designed for a “forum for a true diversity of political discourse.” If “Section 230 is what allows the internet to exist” as Soave argues, then the threat of losing their special privileges would disincentivize arbitrary censorship. That is really all that the section 230 critics, such as Senators Cruz and Hawley, seek.

Glen Beck used to do these exposures all the time when he had his tv show. Then he went kind of off-kilter for awhile. He’s on the radio still, and I think he’s ok, but I rarely hear him. I donate to Heritage and receive their magazine, but that is about to end. Today. Tucker has really been giving us the straight scoop on things.

Many of us have commented about the politicians running for office to become millionaires/multimillionaires. Why spend a few million to get elected to a job that would take 20 years to recoup your money? The answer is that they know that money will flow, provided they scratch someone's back. That someone is not necessarily concerned about us, or our country.

You said it, #8. As my son says, there are genuine conservative spokespersons and there is a Conservative, Inc. The latter is comprised of many who are making lots of cash being a “conservative celebrity.” As Trump said, the faux conservative Republicans and GOPe are just as corrupt and dangerous as the Democrats. The d Bush crowd led by Rove is busy as little beavers down here in Texas just hoping Trump doesn’t succeed in uncovering too much of their corruption.

Pete Buttigieg has tried to carve out a niche among Democratic presidential hopefuls as the candidate who is comfortable talking about religion. Unfortunately, he’s only comfortable trying to use religion as a means of beating conservatives, especially religious ones, over the head. This annoying penchant was on display again in Buttigieg’s Christmas message. He tweeted: Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee. No matter where or how we celebrate, merry Christmas. Buttigieg’s message struck me as fake history.

With the help of Senate Republicans, Donald Trump spent the first three years of his presidency remaking the federal judiciary in his own image. The president has appointed 133 district court judges, 50 appeals court judges, and two Supreme Court justices—meaning about one-fifth of the nation’s federal trial judges, and one-fourth of its federal appellate judges, are Trump appointees. These jurists are leading a conservative revolution that will upend decades of precedent and enshrine reactionary policies into the law. The transformation has only just begun.
