The Daily Beast is starting to recognize Tucker Carlson’s influence on President Trump’s foreign policy.
Tensions have been heating up in the Persian Gulf over the last month, as the Trump administration has put tremendous pressure on Iran to cease its nuclear program and its increased proxy attacks in the region.
The article noted the neoconservative influence of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton. However, another voice has Trump’s ear recently. Specifically, Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson has been one of the leading voices for non-interventionism and America First policies throughout Trump’s time in office.
The Daily Beast reports that “the Fox News host has privately advised Trump against taking military action against Iran.” In the same report, a senior Trump administration official told The Daily Beast that Carlson criticized some of the more “hawkish members of his administration.
Although several members of the Trump administration and Fox News pundits argue that conflict with Iran would be justified, Carlson has stood in opposition to world policing. Carlson recently questioned whether a conflict with Iran would be “in anyone’s interest.” Last month, Carlson criticized Bolton, saying that he was escalating tensions, and that a potential clash with the Islamic Republic would “be like Christmas, Thanksgiving, his birthday wrapped into one.”
On a Monday night segment of his program, Carlson drew parallels between the recent attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and the flawed intelligence leading to the Iraq invasion in 2003 — specifically the Iraqi possession of weapons of mass destruction.
Carlson said, “We’re still paying a price for that.”
Since May 2018, the Trump administration has been dialing up the pressure on Iran by curtailing the government’s ability to fund terrorist groups through sanctions and force Iran to re-enter negotiations. One unprecedented move the Trump administration took was labeling Iran’s military as a terrorist organization.
Last week’s tanker assault, where one Norwegian and another Japanese tanker were attacked, have quickly escalated tensions. The Trump administration and the British government instantly blamed the Iranians for these attacks. At first, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas declared that U.S. evidence was “not enough” to pin blame on Iran for the attacks. On Tuesday, however, Chancellor Angela Merkel said that there was “strong evidence” pointing to Iran.
Tucker has remained a voice of reason in holding Trump accountable for his America First policies.
However, the Daily Beast piece tried to attack Carlson in a underhanded manner for his previous remarks about Trump in Politico.
The Fox News host detailed a voicemail he received from Trump in his celebrity-businessman days.
Tucker wrote, “About 15 years ago, I said something nasty on CNN about Donald Trump’s hair.”
He added, “I can’t now remember the context, assuming there was one. In any case, Trump saw it and left a message the next day. ‘It’s true you have better hair than I do,’ Trump said matter-of-factly. ‘But I get more pussy than you do.’”
Although Tucker and Trump may have had rocky relations in the past, the two now have made amends and are indirectly working together to advance an America First vision in some shape or form.
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
