Don’t Ask Government for Love, Tucker


Tucker Carlson is completely right about one thing – the decline of marriage is a great challenge of our times. I’ve written a whole book about it. So, you’d think I would rejoice that Carlson’s rant-heard-round-the-right focused on it. Sorry, no. I’ve rarely seen such a cynical and misleading use of television.

Everything that is going wrong with this country, Carlson instructed his viewers, is the consequence of “uncaring” politicians. They don’t care about your 19-year-old son who’s high on pot. Why? “It’s not an accident.” It’s because “our leaders understood that they could get rich from marijuana.” Never mind that 62 percent of voters say they want to decriminalize marijuana.


Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America tackle three crazy martinis today. They wade into the battle of monstrous egos as CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta grandstands and tries to debate President Trump about the migrants headed for the U.S. border and Trump responds by calling Acosta a “terrible person” and pulling his White House press credentials. They also recoil as Antifa protesters find the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, damaging his front door, and chanting that they know where he sleeps while Carlson’s wife hides in the pantry. They get a kick out of the rank hypocrisy of the left-wing Women’s March for berating the white women who voted for Republicans. And Alexandra takes us inside the North Dakota and Indiana Senate wins for the GOP and what she learned from covering those two races closely.

Real Donald Trump Blunder? “Montenegro” Isn’t Montenegro.


No president is perfect, else we would allow unlimited terms. I support President Trump’s actions towards Russia, am not discomforted by the Helsinki summit, and believe the upcoming DC summit to be a good thing. I also recognize that the relentlessly hostile network and cable news media make the islands of apparently friendly forums attractive. With all those qualifications, I was jarred by the President’s response to Tucker Carlson on “Montenegro.” I am concerned because of history and because it is clear “Montenegro,” in Tucker’s agenda, is not Montenegro. A quick look at the map shows what I mean.


“What people in New England who hate Trump are really saying is ‘I make over $100 grand a year and I have a graduate degree.'”

So says Fox News host Tucker Carlson in this bonus edition of the Behind The Blue Wall podcast. He also talks about his family’s connections to Maine, the bizarre story of the book-banning “bookstore,” and why you’ll never hear the phrase “I can’t believe you said that” from him.

Tucker Carlson’s Summary of the Manafort Indictment


Fox News host Tucker Carlson broke some Russia news this week:

“In the meantime, if you’re looking for a summary of all of this — here’s the one-sentence Cliff note to the whole affair: The chairman of one major presidential campaign colluded with the brother of the chairman of the other major presidential campaign to enrich themselves by secretly advancing the interests of a foreign adversary. That happened. That’s the swamp they told you that needed to be drained.”

Tucker Carlson Explains It All


A number of people have tried to understand and explain this election cycle. Tucker Carlson just walked in, explained it, and dropped the mic. There is too much in this article for me to quote, so I’ll just leave the link and let it speak for itself. His indictment of Washington culture and politically correct […]
