The Fake News Media is trying to smear Tucker Carlson after defending President Trump’s visit with North Korean leader King Jong-Un.
Carlson received heat for saying that part of leading a country “means killing people.”
Trump received criticism from all across the political spectrum when he became the first sitting president to cross the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and meet with Kim in North Korea.
During a phone interview on “Fox & Friends Sunday”, Carlson was asked if Trump was “pandering” to the North Korean leader or was angering the American public for not taking a tough stance on Kim’s long record of human rights violations.
Carlson admitted that there “is no defending the North Korean regime, which is a monstrous regime. It is the last really Stalinist regime in the whole world. It is a disgusting place, obviously.”
The show host did concede that “you’ve got to be honest about what it means to lead a country. It means killing people.”
Tucker continued, “Not on the scale the North Koreans do, but a lot of countries commit atrocities, including a number that we are closely allied with.”
The commentator reiterated that he “is not a relativist or anything” and that it is the “nature of life, and certainly the nature of power” having to choose between “the bad people and the worse people.”
Carlson added that “It takes a pretty hard man to keep a hold on power in a place like North Korea, so I think Trump respects his toughness.”
The Fox News host was spotted next to Trump administration officials during Trump’s visit to the DMZ.
Trump declared that “stepping across that line was a great honor.” He has even suggested inviting Kim to the White House.
Bill Kristol, a vociferous Never Trumper and staunch neoconservative, criticized Carlson’s comments on Twitter, pointing that Carlson is slated to be a keynote speaker at the National Conservatism Conference.
Tucker Carlson is a keynote speaker at the forthcoming National Conservatism Conference. The other speakers who seem to have accepted invitations are listed at https://t.co/sVoAjSpAUj. I don't know they realized they were signing up to be associated with this. https://t.co/sWNY9A0TmR

However, Kristol thinks that inviting Tucker to speak at this conference is a big mistake.
“I don’t know they realized they were signing up to be associated with this,” Kristol commented.
Never Trumpers like Erick Erickson and Kristol have thrown fits ever since Trump was elected.
Gone are days where American foreign policy serves the interests of the defense industry and foreign policy elites in D.C.
Under Trump, the U.S. is finally taking a new political course which places national interests at the forefront of all foreign policy decision-making.
What Trump is doing with North Korea is historic and represents a new chapter in international relations.
Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs
Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most
America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.
Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.
Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.
President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.
Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.
The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”
The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.
“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.
In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.
Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.
Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
