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.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
