Fox News host Tucker Carlson is pushing back against the right-wing conventional wisdom regarding Iran, and he called out the dubiousness of the deep state’s intelligence in the drive for war on the Tuesday edition of his titular prime-time program.
“Now just a month ago, not one-in-100 Americans was thinking about Iran. Now suddenly, we are on the brink of war. In Washington, that is considered an upgrade, indeed, a massive improvement. It’s hard to get rich and powerful in Washington during peacetime so our leaders have a built-in bias for war,” Carlson explained.
“And so they descended on television studios over the weekend to describe in detail the kind of violence they are prepared to wreak on a country very few of them know anything about,” he added.
Carlson gave the examples of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as two belligerent neoconservatives spreading war propaganda on the airwaves to gin up the Iranian threat amongst the American public.
“It’s hard to remember now but as recently as last week, most people didn’t consider Iran an imminent threat. Iranian saboteurs were not committing acts of terror in our cities. Oh, but our leaders tell us they were about to any second. That’s why we struck first,” Carlson said.
Carlson then criticized the amnesia that has developed within many conservatives that has caused them to forget what their position was regarding the deep state and the intelligence community just last week.
“Just the other day, you remember, our intel agencies were considered politically tainted and suspect. Certainly on this show, they are, were, and will be for quite some time. Keep in mind, these are the people who invented excuses to spy on the Trump campaign purely because they didn’t like Donald Trump’s foreign policy views, and they were the ones who pretended he was a Russian agent to keep him from governing. Remember that? Russiagate! Our friends in the intel community did that,” Carlson explained.
“And by the way, these are the same people who lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction way back in 2002, and by doing that, got us into an utterly pointless war that dramatically weakened our country. The people pushing conflict with Iran are the same people who did that. It seems like about 20 minutes ago, we were denouncing these very people as the deep state and vowing never to trust them again without verification,” he added.
Carlson expressed shock and dismay at the sudden shift in the conservative mindset, and their unwillingness to think logically in the midst of the war push with Iran.
“But now for some reason, we do seem to trust them implicitly and completely. In fact, we believe whatever they tell us no matter how outlandish. ‘Iran did 9/11,’ they’re telling us. Oh, ok. Didn’t know that. 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Sunni Saudi Arabia, none were from Shiite Iran, but if you say so, Mr. Unnamed CIA Official, I’m happy to send my kid to the Middle East a week after Christmas on the basis of your anonymous unverified leak to the New York Times. You’ve earned my trust through years of lying to me,” Carlson said.
“That appears to be our position now, and maybe all of us will turn out fine in the end. We’re certainly praying for it. We love this country. But in the mean time, pardon the skepticism,” he concluded.
The entire rant can be seen here:
Is the FBI Preparing to Revoke 1st Amendment Protections for Trump Supporters?
Ripping off the mask.
After last week’s mostly peaceful protests at the Capitol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to browbeat and scrutinize Trump supporters as criminals, CNN has announced.
The rationale is that all Trump supporters are “extremists,” and if their constitutional rights are honored and protected, they might commit domestic terrorism, or something.
“Federal officials stressed on the call with state, local, tribal and college campus law enforcement leaders that the FBI will not tolerate extremists using the First Amendment as a guide to incite violence,” CNN reported.
Predictably, the Rooskies are being trotted out as a familiar scapegoat for the growing anger that is building against corrupt government officials in both parties.
“According to the source, federal officials said on the call that Russian actors have been amplifying the false narrative that members of Antifa infiltrated Trump supporters during the riot at the US Capitol, and the Chinese have seized on news stories showing chaos in the US,” CNN reported.
According to the article, the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are predicting that more violence is on the way.
“The violent breach of the US Capitol Building is very likely part of an ongoing trend in which (extremists) exploit lawful protests, rallies, and demonstrations, and other gatherings to carry out ideologically-motivated violence and criminal activity,” an intelligence brief from the deep state agencies stated.
Big League Politics has reported on the massive crackdown that has ensued since last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol, which has put the entire political establishment on notice:
Meghan McCain, the venomously anti-Trump daughter of deceased Sen. John McCain, is calling for President Donald Trump’s supporters to be put into Guantanamo Bay.
McCain is calling for Trump supporters who participated in the infamous and historic Capitol siege in Washington D.C. last week to be detained in the facility typically used to hold foreign terrorists.
“I just think we need to treat domestic terrorists the way we do actual terrorists. I think we need to consider all possibilities. I’m not against sending these people to Gitmo. These are domestic terrorists who attacked our own Republic. They should be treated the same way we treat Al Qaeda,” she said during a discussion on ABC’s “The View.”
… McCain also endorsed impeaching President Trump or removing him with the 25th Amendment, thinking this incredible overreach would somehow prevent the likelihood of violence…
The events of last week have exposed who the RINOs are once and for all. The civil war within the Republican Party over the next election cycle will be epic.
The mask has been ripped off. Fair elections are no more, the Constitution is toilet paper, and the deep state will be treating patriotic Americans like ISIS.
