Tucker Carlson Launches Lying Lecture Claiming ‘Elites’ Outraged Over Trump’s Child Snatching Hate Families



Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson delivered one of his most offensive diatribes in recent memory Monday night. “Elites,” Carlson claimed, are feigning outrage over President Trump’s policy of separating young children from their undocumented parents at our Southern border.

Carlson actually insisted that many of those who say they are outraged by the child snatching “don’t even have children,” as if people can only have empathy if something affects them personally – a hallmark of conservative behavior. He also claimed those who are outraged – two-thirds of all Americans now – should instead be “worried about the collapse of the American family, which is measurable and real.” Apparently he believes the trauma that child psychology experts say will have lifelong effects on these children, is not real.

“In fact,” he continued, these elites on the left “welcome” the collapse of the American family, because “strong families are an impediment to their political power, and that’s why they’re always lecturing you about the patriarchy and the evil of the nuclear family.”

There literally is no one lecturing about the “evil of the nuclear family” – no one says the nuclear family is evil.

In fact, if you Google “evil of the nuclear family” this is what you’d see:

Note that Tucker’s own tweet is at the top, and Google could find only seven references in total – three of them about Carlson’s insane claim.

Carlson then gets to the racism of his diatribe.

“This is one of those moments that tells you everything about our ruling class,” he claims, neglecting to remind his Fox News viewers that “our ruling class” are actually the Republican majority in the House and Senate, the Republican in the White House, and even the Republican majority on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“They care far more about foreigners than about their own people,” he says.

“Their own people.” As if empathy should have borders. Or skin color.

“Millions and millions of American kids are growing up with one parent at home, families separated, thanks to [the elites’] policies, and that’s fine with them.”

Carlson neglected to mention what “elitist” policies are forcing parents to not live together, although apparently those policies are putting parents behind bars.

“So in that way these kids are just like the kids you’ve been watching on television,” he falsely claimed. It’s false because, as sad as it may be that parents who have committed crimes are behind bars, their children weren’t fleeing exponentially worse violence and murder than we see in America. And many of those Carlson is talking about are behind bars for low-level drug offenses, when they should not be. Those aren’t “elitist” policies forcing parents to not live together, those are frequently the Trump administration’s policies.

He also claims that Democrats “are not interested in solutions,” which is also a lie. All 49 Democratic Senators have signed onto a bill that would ban the separation of children from their families. Zero Republicans are supporting it.

Carlson, you’ll remember, is best known for the moment when Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” got him fired after both mocking and decimating a little show Carlson co-hosted in 2004, on CNN, called “Crossfire.”

Here’s Tucker Carlson’s meltdown from Monday Night’s Fox News show:

Trump Gleefully Jokes About ‘Rough’ Treatment of US Reporters by North Korean Guards (Video)



Last month during a GOP fundraiser held at Mar-a-Lago Donald Trump, the former president, gleefully recounted an event he says took place when he met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

“He’s not big on press coming in. I don’t think he’d ever done it before,” Trump said, as first reported by The Uprising’s Hunter Walker (video, via Women for Trump, below).

“And the press came in and they were rough, not so much with him — even not so much with me — but the way they poured in, physically they tried to push guards down. And fortunately, these were North Korea guards. They didn’t get pushed down.”

“It was a rough kind of a day for the press,” Trump noted.

Walker adds there is “a chance Trump may have said ‘unfortunately,’ but the overall intent of the remark — mocking tough physical treatment of the press by the authoritarian Kim’s guards — is clear. After telling the tale, Trump began to chuckle and the audience laughed along with him.”

The Washington Post reported at the time of the meeting, June of 2019, that then-press secretary Stephanie Grisham was “bruised…in a scuffle between North Korean security and members of the U.S. press pool covering President Trump’s meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.”

The Secret Service was forced to intervene “as North Korean guards pushed and shoved American reporters,” The Post added.

Trump spent a good portion of his time campaigning from 2015 through 2021 attacking the press, even calling out some reporters by name. One famous story involves NBC News/MSNBC reporter Katy Tur, who required Secret Service armed escorts out of a Trump rally in December of 2015 after she was personally, verbally attacked by Trump.

‘We Will Never Back Down’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Serves Up Defiant Religious Rant Vowing to Only Serve God



Embattled U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) served up a fiery, defiant religious rant on social media Wednesday morning, and speaking in the third person, vowing to only “serve” and “bow to” God.

“We will never back down,” she promised.

At 6:42 AM Greene, whose Twitter bio indicates she is a “Christian, Wife, Mom, Small Business Owner, Proud American, 100% Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Trump #MAGA,” posted a tweet praising God.

About an hour later, Greene responded to a Politico report stating House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was leaning toward stripping her of her committee assignments, declaring that no matter what he does, “it would never be enough for the hate America Democrats.”

The “hate America Democrats” is a favorite phrase of Greene’s.

Rather than attack McCarthy, who holds her future in his hands, she went after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, whose execution she has repeatedly supported.

“As much as [McCarthy] genuinely tries to work with @SpeakerPelosi for the good of this country, she refuses to see the hypocrisy of her own conference,” Greene claimed.

She then proceeded to attack well-known Democratic lawmakers, although not mentioning them by name. These are not new attacks from Greene, she has made most of these before, but they are vitriolic and most are unfounded.

And then Greene reverted to her religious remarks, again, appearing to speak in the third person.

We know who they all are.

We owe them no apologies

We will never back down.

We only serve the ONE who created us ALL, and we only bow to HIM.

And we know who we are, free and saved by HIS grace.

No matter what.

McEnany: Trump Continues to Pursue ‘Ongoing Litigation’ to Retain Power– It’s Not ‘the January 20th Date’ Yet



Kayleigh McEnany on Tuesday, in her role this afternoon as White House press secretary, says President Donald Trump continues to pursue “ongoing litigation” to retain power and has until January 20 to continue those actions.

President-elect Joe Biden won the Electoral College in a 306-232 vote, and beat Donald Trump by more than 7 million votes in the popular vote.

McEnany said Monday’s Electoral College vote was merely “one step in the constitutional process leading up to the January 20th date in the Constitution.”

Her statements are false. The Electoral College has completed its constitutional duties and there is no legal path for overturning its vote.

Despite her being a senior advisor to the Trump campaign, a role experts say is at minimum the appearance of an ethical conflict, she refused to answer more questions and referred reporters to the campaign.
