The Left Fears A Tucker Carlson Presidential Campaign

New York Times opinion columnist Farhad Manjoo claims Tucker Carlson could the future of right-wing populism in America.

Published

It’s hard to imagine a national political figure that could possibly derange the progressive left more than Donald J. Trump. But New York Times writer Farhad Manjoo already has done exactly that, admitting in a Times opinion piece that populist commentator and Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson would in fact be “worse” than Trump as President.

According to Manjoo, Carlson would be poised to deliver on the economic, nationalist populism most prominently proposed in Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and frequently featured on Tucker’s primetime Fox News show.

Majoo admits that Carlson’s pro-American platform would have a broad appeal across diverse elements of American society, reaching out to the great portions of Americans whose livelihoods are threatened by the conglomeration of wealth on the coasts by massive, soulless, and delusional San Francisco tech companies such as Facebook, Google, Apple and Microsoft. He would be poised to offer policy solutions to offset the effects of automation in an era where most conventional conservatives simply don’t care to think outside the box in order to solve one of the most pervasive problems facing American society.

The progressive columnist goes on to claim that Tucker would use said broad appeal to incite racial division. Of course, he’d maintain that literally any political opposition to immigration would represent precisely that.

Majoo imagines Tucker as a potential Presidential candidate in a scenario in which Joe Biden defeats Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Biden would be an utterly clueless incumbent in a debate with Carlson, offering absolutely nothing but empty anecdotes to assist Americans suffering from the effects of automation, mass immigration and the consolidation of wealth among massive tech corporations and neoliberal oligarchs.

Carlson has thrown water on the prospect of a potential presidential candidacy, citing a desire to keep more of his family life. But with a few notable exceptions such as Missouri Senator Josh Hawley(a potential running mate), there are few national political leaders with an ability to channel the populist energy first touched upon by Donald Trump for a political movement that lasts beyond his presidency.

As a Presidential candidate, Carlson could potentially not only represent a political threat to the Democratic Party, but the entire liberal oligarchy progressives have sought to empower in American cultural, political, economic and social life. Manjoo’s fear of his potential future candidacy is something Republicans should keep in mind.

Roger Stone Files Motion to Remove Judge From Controversial Case

Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison this week.

Published

Roger Stone has filed a motion to remove the presiding judge from his controversial court case on Saturday, just days after the longtime Republican political operative was sentenced to a stringent 40-month prison term for lying to federal investigators.

Stone is seeking a new trial, and his legal team is pointing out evidence of Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s bias against their client as cause for a new judge. Jackson complimented the jury after they handed on the lengthy prison sentence on Stone for process crimes, stating that they had “served with integrity.

There’s further reason to believe that Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump in the early days of his 2016 Presidential campaign, has been made a victim of deep-seated political bias during the trial, one of the few to result from Robert Mueller’s lengthy and ultimately empty Russian interference probe.

At least one juror has stepped forward to bemoan an effort by the DOJ to dial back aggressive prosecutors seeking to place Stone in prison for an even lengthier amount of time. Juror Tomeka Heart is a committed Democrat former congressional candidate. She’s posted at length on her personal social media about her personal dislike of President Trump.

It’s rather shocking that a juror with such a distinguishable political affiliation wouldn’t be passed up in a court case with direct national political implications. Stone’s lawyers mention Heart’s partisan affiliation in their court filing for a new trial and judge.

Stone currently remains free, pending his filing for a new trial.

Tucker Carlson discussed the pressing ethical lapses surrounding Stone’s conviction and sentencing during a segment on his show Thursday night.
