A #NeverTrump magazine that will reportedly be going out of business in mere weeks appears to be mailing it in completely after writing a glowing piece in support of presidential bid for Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).
“Social media are Booker’s bread and butter. They are good advertising, and they are free. But Booker senses that he’s not so much giving something as getting it. Without fail, he asks the first name of everyone he meets and is almost certain to repeat it back at least once. Booker is fond of tweeting out Dale Carnegie quotes and makes good on one of the guru of self-improvement’s famous rules: ‘Remember that a person’s name is, to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language,’” Weekly Standard said in a piece fawning over Booker.
The puff piece included a long anecdote about Booker giving McDonald’s french fries to a homeless man, which is supposed to make you believe that Booker is a good guy, another about how Booker’s parents fought against housing discrimination in the 1960’s for the same reason, and a weird blurb about how Booker is a “hugger,” which is supposed to make him relatable.
The piece even lauded despicable actions Booker’s actions during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.
“But any name he has made for himself has been in opposing President Trump’s judicial nominations,” the magazine said approvingly. “His performance on the Judiciary Committee during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings drew headlines and boosted his progressive cred. But his acts of “resistance” also had their comic moments. He said he risked expulsion from the Senate for releasing classified documents that he dramatically said showed Kavanaugh as an advocate of racial profiling. He called it his ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.'”
Finally, the Weekly Standard gave Booker a pass for groping a woman during his teens – to which he admitted in an op-ed written in Stanford University’s newspaper – which came to light during the hearings.
Booker blamed the culture of “toxic masculinity” that he grew up in for the incident. The piece finishes by giving its readers a glimpse at Booker’s campaign strategy. The rhetoric is just a bit further left-leaning than the GOP establishment fruitcakes that Weekly Standard supported, even after the American people decided that they wanted someone tough like Trump.
“Booker claims to see a path forward in ‘small acts of kindness, decency, and love.’ When he hears the ‘moral vandalism coming from the highest offices in the land’ he tells the crowd at Dartmouth, ‘it’s not time to curse another human being or descend into hateful rhetoric,'” the piece said. “‘It’s time to decide that I’m going to be light in this darkness, I’m going to be love, I’m going to be a part of a revival of civic grace in America.'”
From being the center of the conservative movement just a decade ago to riding off into the sunset praising a progressive Democrat, it sure has been an incredible fall from grace for the Weekly Standard.
ET TU, TUCKER? Carlson Suggests Sidney Powell Has No Evidence of Vote Steal Coup on ‘Fox News’
Has he been compromised?
After the inspiring press conference by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell on Thursday about the Trump campaign’s steadfast dedication toward fighting voter fraud, supporters of President Trump expected Fox News host Tucker Carlson to support these efforts to save America.
Unfortunately, that is not what happened, as Carlson went off on Powell, making statements on his primetime program implying that she has no evidence for her claims.
“For more than a week, Powell has been all over conservative media with the following story: This election was stolen by a collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software in order to flip millions of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden,” Carlson said.
“The other day on television, Powell said of Trump, that when the fraud is finally uncovered, ‘I think we’ll find that he had at least 80 million votes.’ In other words, rigged software stole about seven million votes in this election,” he added.
At this point, Carlson’s commentary went off the rails, and he appeared to be carrying water for the color revolution coup that has culminated with the vote steal of the century.
“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened the whole time at wrapped attention…But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests,” Carlson said.
“When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either,” he added.
Because Powell does not want to jeopardize any court case which the fate of the entire nation rests upon by blabbing to the media or any bureaucrats, Carlson is attacking her credibility.
“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another…We’re telling you this because it’s true,” he said.

Tucker Carlson says Trump campaign unwilling to provide evidence to back their claims

Big League Politics has reported on the left-ward shift of Fox News in recent months, which Carlson has up to this point pushed back against:
After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.
“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.
“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded…
He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect…
It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.
Hopefully this is not a sign that Carlson has folded to the globalist establishment.
