Tucker Carlson Helps Cull the Republican
Presidential Field

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/16/2023 5:07:33 AM

If, like me, you find the presidential debate format a rather meaningless exercise, you will be astonished at what one-on-one interviews by a skilled interrogator can accomplish. At the Iowa family Leader conference, Tucker Carlson interviewed several leading contenders for president Tim Scott, Asa Hutchinson, Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis. If the participants thought this was going to be another tongue bath, they were certainly surprised. He asked hard questions and some of their answers exposed their muddled thinking. At least two of them – Asa Hutchinson and Mike Pence -- were clear losers

I like Vivek Ramaswamy's positions. I doubt he'd win the nomination but whoever wins would be wise to bring him into the fold.

If you can't get thru a Tucker interview, your not prepared for a hostile media that will lie, take statements out of context and look for any gotchas they can find. Tucker is performing a valuable service. Weeding out the weak or forcing them to toughen up. I would pay money to watch him evicerate Christie. And Trump needs to get the same treatment to prepare him.

I believe it's a safe bet that no democrat challenger will appear before Tucker.

When will Gov DeSantis be grilled on the insane property insurance tsunami sweeping Florida? Some friends in smallish older modular home parks with paid off homes are being swamped with premium increases as high or higher than mortgages. Media doesn't seem to realize that not all of FL is MarLago level incomes. How will those entering retirement be able to stay in their homes when they can't pay or their insurer has pulled out of the state?

Pence gave an awful performance. He sounded like he was out of breath - nervous, perhaps? He's so tone deaf he probably went away thinking he did fine, but he seems physically, intellectually, spiritually and morally close to death. Very very disturbing. I could barely stand to look at his empty eyes. Ramona (the Pest)

#5: Florida has a big red bullseye right in the middle of it for hurricanes. Most insurance companies don’t even sell insurance in Florida. If you choose to live there, the cost of insurance will always be a problem. Don’t blame the companies. Blame Mother Nature.

Amen! #3. 6.... when these fakirs cannot think on their feet when asked a straight question that deviates from their pre-prepated answers, their candidacies OUGHT to fall . Tucker pulls no punches and asks fair, thoughtful questions-- not the "gotcha" type questions we continually see when the libtard 'journolist ' media types moderate these sorts of things. It would be quite interesting if Tucker had asked these same questions to the Vegetable!

FTA ... “True ‘privilege’ is not based on the color of your skin. It’s being raised in a stable family with two parents with a focus on education and a faith in God. That’s the ultimate “privilege…” “Math isn't racist. But you know what might be? Not teaching black kids how to do math." I'm kind of liking this Ramaswamy guy. Mostly spot on and not near crazy.

In all fairness, I am asking the question of why Donald Trump wasn't there. If Donald Trump is asking to be president for another four years, he should have been interviewed also. . . No more elitism. As an average American citizen, I want the voting process to be fair again. There should be no exceptions, favorites etc. Money, power, and prestige seems to have taken the voting process of the American people's hands.

Tucker Carlson culls the Republican Presidential field. Is that his job? Thought that was the job of the voter. Do agree most of the field isn't serious and the only real choice at this point is Trump in spite of his problems. Trump needs to realize he is alone in Washington and none of his advisors are trustworthy. He will need to trust his own beliefs and not rely on anyone else. DeSantis reminds me of a fat cat Republican that takes direction from Democrats and globalistas. The rest...just 'no'.

Clarice gets most of it right. Mike Pence was a non-contender going in, he just reaffirmed it. Hutchinson is nothing but a never-Trumper who swings with the breeze and repeats tired old talking points. Haley hasn't done anything spectacular in her career, just applied some recommended business practices, except for the plan to embed teams of "efficiency experts" in a business to second-guess management, like the Two Bobs in "Office Space." For a refresher, read "The Efficiency Expert" by Edgar Rice Burroughs. If your management isn't performing, replace them directly. As for Rammasmarmy, he has successfully compiled a list of Donald Trump's accomplishments and plans and proudly states them as his own but the man is smart. Tim Scott and DeSantis are good men who will eventually rise to the top with a few more years under their belts. What #7 said about Florida hurricanes. It's the same story with people who rebuild along major rivers and get swept downstream every couple of years in floods. Believe SunTzu, stick with the high ground.

Sorry, I couldn't disagree more with #13's assertion: "Tucker Carlson culls the Republican Presidential field. Is that his job? Thought that was the job of the voter." Of course that's his job. It's the job of any responsible journalist to inform the voters before they wander into the voting booth. We got Obama and the Vegetable because the journalists from the Left hid these candidates' frailties, stupidities, and treacheries from the voting populace. Even if the DOJ and FBI had hid the Hunter Biden laptop and bribery news from the voters, responsible journalists should have brought it to the attention of the voters through investigative journalism.

Re #16. Nothing concrete or scientific. Does DeSantis remind me more of Trump or the Bushes/Mitt Romney/McCain and take it from there. It was my very first impression of DeSantis before anything was said about him. I could give DeSantis the benefit of the doubt like I did others that proved to be RINOs. Not doing that this time. Especially as long as there is a real alternative in Trump.

President Trump has sat for many interviews and pressers, often fielding questions from mostly unfriendly media. Brit Hume once expressed astonishment that “he takes every question and answers every question”. He never ever “put a lid on it” and walked away as Zhou does. Where was everybody? Does anyone here think he will be any different, that he is weaker, that he now cares less for his and our country? And what’s this about being “humble”? A word I learned to hate when I read Dickens and met that mendacious ‘umble creature, Uriah Heep. I far prefer Trump’s being what his daughter described: blunt. “Uncompromisingly straightforward”, according to my dictionary. President Trump was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo. Today and next Sunday on Sunday Morning Futures. Why not have a look. Get real! We need Trump this time because we are in a world of hurt and he’s the only one who knows the territory and the players. The others are greenhorn wannabes with no presence or qualifiations or respect on the national and the world stage. Do we really seriously want a newbie with training wheels in the White House? Did no one learn where PDJT was during his term?

"More than 40 billionaires back Gov. Ron DeSantis’ reelection campaign in Florida. Who are they?” Political experts say that level of billionaire support in a governor’s race is remarkable, and speaks to his star power within the GOP. It also raises questions about how his ties to economic elites, a group he appears to be heavily courting despite public spats with companies such as Disney, could impact policy decisions. The governor’s billionaire contributors have a combined net worth greater than the gross domestic product of Finland or Pakistan. They hail from 15 states. They include well-known names and obscure figures. Some have been dogged by scandal. One even was pardoned by former President Donald Trump. More at link:

Oh, I am real. I never said I wouldn't vote for Donald Trump. What I am saying is that if there is a forum like this one where Tucker is questioning the candidates, I would want Trump to be part of it. Look up the definition of humble: 1. Marked by meekness or modesty in behavior, attitude, or spirit; not arrogant or prideful. 2. Showing deferential or submissive respect. 3. Low in rank, quality, or station; unpretentious or lowly. As stated in above paragraph, I never said I wouldn't vote for Donald Trump but there are times his behavior points me somewhere else especially when he is attacking another Republican candidate. It is bad enough that Democrats are bashing Republicans but for each other? I have also said many times that he will have four years and that is playing into my decision. By the way, since insurance costs were hung on DeSantis from another poster, I do not live in Florida; yet, my auto, umbrella, and homeowner's insurance went up significantly. I think it is happening across the board and not just in Florida. Posters like you #21 or #22, whatever, do not intimidate me. I have been around this forum for PROBABLY longer than you and I try to be gracious in my comments. I have freedom of speech just like you.

Posting here since early 2001 and not trying to intimidate anyone. Just exercising free speech when I say I don’t want a president who has to humble himself. I want a fighter. President Trump has proved himself in the office. Four long years wth enemies attacking “from both sides of the aisle”. I believe the unknowns are the ones who need to be vetted and questioned. They have never held the office.

#19,#24~ As Rush so often said, “words mean things.” To “believe” that President Trump should be “humbled” is beyond hurtful considering what he and his family have been subjected to since announcing his presidential candidacy in 2015. This man is the personification of President Theodore Roosevelt’s “man in the arena ... whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly,” whose personal sacrifice has touched the lives not only of Americans, but people throughout the world in a positive, meaningful way that his adversaries refuse to recognize and appreciate. With all due respect, to further expound on the definition of “humble” has exacerbated the hurtful dialogue. Mortal man is what he is, innate personality as well as acquired persona due to bumps and bruises experienced in one’s life. Having grown up in the construction industry President Trump’s verbiage may be distasteful at times but likely the result of interaction with people who are a vital part of America’s fabric, people who are appreciated and without whom this country could not survive. President Trump is not an elitist snob. President Trump does not need to be vetted. President Trump is the only man for this time, a time when this country hangs in the balance of its survival as founded and in a world teetering on World War III. The uncertainty of all that can happen with the 2024 presidential election is of paramount importance and to add the uncertainty of a novice as a Republican presidential candidate is naïve and too foolish to risk. #21,#25~ Well expressed reality check.

Sorry #11, I would be right there with ya if it were any other politician than Trump. He has been interviewed by TC more than a few times. He has never been one to avoid tough stuff unlike we are used to every single four year primary process with our wimpy Republicans. Trump basically running as incumbent and his record recently as President makes him much more of a known quantity. That said, betcha if had not had a big speech Saturday night, he likely would have been there.

#2,EtAl~ At this point in time, the future of this country is at stake at this point and the world is on the brink of World War III so it is naïve, irresponsible and reckless to entrust the presidency of this country to novice. This country, its destiny, and the world are better served by the man who was actually “in the arena” as so eloquently voiced by President Theodore Roosevelt, the man “whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is not effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” The wisdom of Albert Einstein must be an absolute consideration in contemplating the presidential candidates for 2024: “WHOEVER IS CARELESS WITH THE TRUTH IN SMALL MATTERS CANNOT BE TRUSTED WITH IMPORTANT MATTERS.” This is not the time to take risks with the future of this country; there is only one man “whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood” and that is President Donald J. Trump. For those tempted by the charm of Vivek Ramaswamy, they would do well to read and seriously contemplate the following articles: VETTING VIVEK RAMASWAMY – Jordan Schachtel (February 22, 2023) “Former pharma exec and newfound anti-ESG crusader has substantial ties to China, the Covid industrial complex, Pfizer, Soros inc, and a track record of business calamities.” ~~~ VIVEK RAMASWAMY PAID WIKIPEDIA EDITORS TO ERASE HIS SOROS FELLOWSHIP AND COVID WORK - Prem Thakker (May 3, 2023) “The 2024 candidate ... has reportedly used some of his millions of dollars to pay a Wikipedia editor to scrub his past. Mediaite reports that Ramaswamy seems to have paid Wikipedia editor Jhofferman, to remove information from his page that he presumably thought would damage his candidacy in the Republican primary. A few days later, he announced his 2024 bid. The editor scrubbed off information related to Ramaswamy receiving the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans in 2011, during his time as a Yale law student. Paul Soros is the older brother of billionaire democratic donor George Soros, who has been the subject of perennial antisemitic conspiracy theories peddled by the right. ... Prominent right-wing figures like Jack Posobiec have directed attention toward Ramaswamy’s past fellowship, presumably in line with the aforementioned use of Soros as a catch-all for anything “suspicious.” ~~~ RAMASWAMY COMPANY PITCHED GOVERNMENTS ON EFFORT TO INSTALL UNIVERSAL COVID PATIENT RECORDS SURVEILLANCE DATABASE – Jordan Schachtel (June 6, 2023) “Datavant sought to create a universal database for governments that displays "every patient who has been tested for Covid-19.’” ~~~ VIVEK RAMASWAMY'S SOROS CONNECTION ~~ BY BOB RYAN (JULY 9, 2023) It appears there is more to Vivek Ramaswamy’s “Soros connection” than being the beneficiary of a Soros Fellowship in 2011 that helped cover his costs at Yale for a future law degree according to a very interesting and enlightening article written by Bob Ryan published in The American Thinker. It seems links to his connections with George Soros as well as his connection to the Ohio Coronavirus Task Force that resulted in the Republican Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, carrying out “an almost identical shutdown as Democrat governors” were scrubbed by Vivek Ramaswamy prior to announcing his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election. Scrubbing, according to Mr. Ryan, raises the question of trust. ~~~ “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” (Anonymous)

This is my last comment on this article and the only reason I am commenting is because the article is posted to the Must Reads. I want to explain my intimidation statement. It just seems that if a person is not 100% Donald Trump, it is beyond belief and the follow-up comments reflect it. I need to get real? I believe I have been posting since 2001 also. I am trying to figure out who I will vote for because I am not 100% Donald Trump. Mainly, because he will only have four years. Lately, I do not care for how he is defending himself. Yes, I agree he has gone through more than any person should have to but he should have expected it. It is called the Palin treatment and she wasn't even running for President of the USA. As for being humbled, I never said he shouldn't fight for his character. What I am turned off by is the name calling - DeSanctimonious for example. Name calling does not represent Donald Trump's character at all. That is all I have to say. . .

Reading the posts this morning, I think someone didn't have their coffee :) I watched on C-Span the interview of Tucker and Pence and it was disturbing. Pence seemed to sigh when he answered a question as if he was being bothered by an inferior and was annoyed by Tucker's presence and questioning. Not a good look by a former V.P. BTW, as a Christian, Pence seemed unconcerned about Priests and religious leaders being arrested and jailed for their speech. He argued with Tucker about that news coming out internationally. Pence seem unconcerned. I question Pence's care for The Body of Christ.

We Conservatives have to acknowledge that a large part of the country despises Trump as much as we despise Brandon: all the Democrats, maybe half of the Know-Nothings(independents) and many Pubbies. It's because he's rocks their boat or he Tweets too much. I'm DJT all the way, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't vote for the contender who could defeat the Commiecrats. It's always been that way until DJT came along and I happily voted for him.

#34,EtAl~ Sincerely, with all due respect, IF this presidential election does occur in 2024, by no means is it a normal presidential election due to the future of this country as founded being at stake and the world on the brink of World War III that could possibly become a nuclear war so voting for a relatively unknown individual instead of a tried-and-true known individual places this country at a very dangerous risk that does not need to be taken. This is an election for this moment in time and not four or eight years from now because this country and/or the world may be something beyond recognition or reclamation in four or eight years. This isn’t a matter of being 100% for President Donald J. Trump; it is a matter of survival, this country’s survival and its impact on the world. There is no question that some of President Trump’s language makes his supporters cringe, but the substance of the man is what is desperately needed at this time—he knows where the bodies are buried. This is a truly patriotic man who desperately wants to preserve this country as founded for the future of his family and the families of all Americans. It is not possible to know how many “plants” infiltrate conservative websites for the purpose of dividing and conquering, to destroy a strong supporter base, to plant the seeds of doubt, to stir infighting but it has happened in the past and it will happen now. This is not a personality contest; this is a life-and-death election for the survival of this country as founded. It is naïve, irresponsible and reckless to entrust the presidency of this country to novice at this point in time. “We need to be strong in order to avoid war; and to win. A politician looks forward only to the next election. A STATESMAN LOOKS FORWARD TO THE NEXT GENERATION. Any person who is over 30 and is not a conservative, has no brains.” (Winston Churchill)

Tucker Carlson is doing the Lord's work. Asa Hutchinson tried to hew to the God-says line, but showed his inner Joseph Goebbels. Asa gets to keep the money. The presidential debate format is more than meaningless since it is a pet enterprise of the League of Women Voters. Those aging ingenues are showing a bit of ankle. (Great to read Clarice in the middle of the week.)

For McConnell, Murkowski is another beholden senator kept securely in his pocket who will vote how he wants on any given day.

As part of a push to "sinicize" religion, the Chinese Communist Party has embarked on a 10-year project to rewrite the Bible and other religious texts.(snip) Across Henan province, local CCP officials forced Protestant churches to replace the Ten Commandments with Xi Jinping quotes. "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me," became diktats like: "Resolutely guard against the infiltration of Western ideology." The 10-year project to rewrite the Bible, Quran and other sacred texts is all part of Xi Jinping’s quest to make the faithful serve the party rather than God.
