Tucker Carlson has been the highest-rated cable news anchor on TV for many reasons. He doesn’t pull punches, he’s not afraid to cover controversial topics, and he delivers everything with a devastatingly effective sense of dry humor. His monologues are almost always worth the watch, with Thursday evening’s offering being no exception.
Carlson lambasted the Biden administration for its attempted gamesmanship on what qualifies as a “recession,” he hit the media for their abject hypocrisy on the same issue, and most importantly, he talked about what few others will: Democrat attempts to make the United States dependent on China for energy.
RedState reported on the Biden presser Carlson quotes to get things started. If you didn’t see it, the president was in typical form, unable to put coherent sentences together and stumbling over the most basic phrases before shuffling off without taking questions. His physical performance, aside, the president didn’t specifically address having two-straight quarters of negative GDP growth (i.e. a recession). Instead, he laughably cited “significant banking personnel” as proof that everything is going just great.
It’s all part of Biden’s continued attempt to tell Americans they are just too stupid to know how great they’ve got it. Are you worried about inflation and the fact that you can’t afford a home loan anymore? Well, Jack, you are just an idiot who can’t see how good you really have it. Get up, Jack!
Carlson then moved on to the Biden administration and those press outlets who used to believe that a recession was two consecutive quarters of zero growth, until just five minutes ago. You see, there’s this rule where if a Democrat is in office, tortured nuance must be applied. Recession is defined as a Republican being in power. How can I tell? Because Biden’s own top economic adviser, Brian Deese, told me so, having stated in 2008 the (real) technical definition of a recession only to completely go the other way in 2022.
Yet, I think the most important part of Carlson’s monologue centered on the latest move by Democrats to empower the Chinese. As you’ve probably heard, taxpayers are about to have to foot the bill for some $400 billion in green energy initiatives to fight “climate change.” What does that amount to? Companies that outsource energy security to China will receive massive subsidies.
Who produces the world’s solar panels and parts of wind turbines? China is the answer. Who owns the rights to most of the materials needed for batteries, which are definitely not “renewable?” That would be China as well. Democrats are convinced that they will save the Earth by handing America over to the largest enemy in the face of China’s global expansion. They should be commended for this.
We are going to need a lot more synonyms for “absurd” going forward because I’m running out of ways to describe the dangerous malfeasance of the Biden administration. They want to be gods, changing terms to fit their political agendas, and they also want the Chicoms to have the keys to the kingdom. I’ll let you speculate on the motivation behind that.
