Tucker Carlson Examines Why Republicans Will Not Stand for ‘Economic Patriotism’

It’s because of the Republican corporate donor class.

FOX News host Tucker Carlson is under fire for praising the proposals of ‘Economic Patriotism’ made by presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on his show last night.

“She says the US government should buy American products when it can. And of course it should,” Carlson said. “She says we need more workplace apprenticeship programs because four-year college degrees aren’t right for everyone. Well, that’s true. She says that taxpayers ought to benefit from the research and development that they pay for.”

“She sounds like Donald Trump at his best,” Carlson said of her economic plan while noting that she is still a “race hustling, gun grabbing, abortion extremist.”

Carlson called out the consensus of “libertarian ideologues” who have dominated Republican economic orthodoxy for decades.

The libertarian rag Reason Magazine, funded by Koch Brothers money, took special offense to Carlson’s assertion that the American people should be prioritized over the profit margins of multinational corporations.

“Like many Republicans in the Trump era, Carlson has been trending away from limited-government rhetoric for a while,” Reason associate editor Elizabeth Nolan Brown wrote, “using his show to “yammer on” about why tariffs are good while still fearmongering about liberals and “socialists” (a category very broadly defined in the Fox world). But drape that “socialism” in a flag, and you just might win him over.”

However, this is a misrepresentation of the points Carlson actually made. He pointed out that market forces do not drive this economy, but rather the economy is driven public policy crafted by corporate oligarchs like the Koch Bros to favor their own interests. The facts bear his statement out.

Right now, the Koch Bros and their lobbying groups are subverting President Trump’s trade agenda and pushing to put the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) back on the table. The TPP is a trade agreement drafted by lawyers with thousands of pages of regulations affecting commerce at home and abroad. It’s not exactly free trade, despite the rhetoric of corporate propagandists.

The Koch Bros’ front groups are also pushing back against restrictions on immigration, calling for open borders and amnesty for illegals, when even the late free market economist Milton Friedman once admitted that “it’s just obvious you can’t have free immigration and a welfare state.”

Koch-funded entities are even making sure that nothing is done to reign in Big Tech corporations, who have used government privileges for years to gain monopoly power in the marketplace which they now use to snuff out dissident free speech and enact the Orwellian nightmare.

These are the libertarian ideologues who Carlson is specifically referencing in his dialogue, and they are arguably a more malign force working against Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda than anyone from the opposition party.

“There isn’t a caucus that represents where most Americans actually are: nationalist on economics, fairly traditional on the social issues,” Carlson argued.

The reason why this caucus is nonexistent is not due to lack of demand, but because powerful billionaires like the Koch Bros do everything in their power to make sure that multinational corporations always get their way even if the American worker suffers as a result.

Democrat VP Choice Kamala Harris Pushed Bail Fund for Minneapolis Rioters ‘Charged with Murder, Violent Felonies, and Sex Crimes’

She helped get these criminals back on the streets to rape and pillage.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has officially been announced as the vice presidential pick for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The Trump campaign is already painting her as a radical who has embraced the extreme Left in order to advance her career after having a tough-on-crime record for decades.

The campaign may have a point considering Harris once promoted a bail fund on her Twitter account that would allow Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terrorists to get back on the streets and continue their sustained campaign of revolutionary violence.

Big League Politics has noted how the Minnesota Freedom Fund turned out to be a massive scam for organizers to largely cash out on the violence sweeping the nation:

Forbes reported on June 16, 2020 that the Minnesota Freedom Fund raised $30 million in donations in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

However, the non-profit received sharp criticism on June 16 after disclosing that it paid out $200,000 to help out agitators who ended up in jail. Such big spending has led to calls for more accountability about the non-profit’s spending habits…

“Without jeopardizing the safety of the folks we bailed out we paid well over $200k in the weeks since the uprising alone. We are working on doing more,” the non-profit Tweeted.

This fund was set up in 2016 and saw its reach expand in the wake of Floyd’s death on May 25 which kicked off national protests nationwide.

Celebrities, campaigners, and influencers were some of the notable figures who posted links to donate to the fund recently. The fund was overloaded with donations to the point that stopped requesting donations and asking that other people donate to other causes.

Critics complained about the fund not spending more and even suggested that some of the money go towards other causes or small businesses that were damaged in the community. Others defended the organization for setting up in the infrastructure to send out millions of dollars.

By supporting this scam, Harris helped to get violent terrorists subvert the rule of law and back on the streets of Minneapolis to turn the town into a wasteland.

Journalist Michael Tracey did what the fake news hacks refused to do and actually traveled to the streets of Minneapolis following the riots and recorded the aftermath, which looks like a freshly bombed out Somalia:

The depressing scenes in Minneapolis show what the rest of America will look like if the Biden/Harris ticket is successful in November.
