Fox News host Tucker Carlson issued a stern warning to President Donald Trump advisers and supporters who believe he has his 2020 presidential re-election campaign in the bag.
“A year from today, we’ll be hosting this show from the National Mall as the next president of the United States takes the oath of office,” Carlson said to start the opening monologue of his titular prime time program on Monday.
“Will that president be Donald Trump? As of tonight, Republicans in Washington feel confident it will be,” he added.
Carlson believes that Trump’s chances of victory depend entirely upon how he conducts his presidential re-election campaign.
“The official economic numbers are strong. The Democratic primaries are a freak show – elderly socialists accusing each other of thoughtcrimes. Republicans are starting to think victory is assured. That’s a mistake,” he continued. “America remains as divided as it was three years ago. No matter what happens, nobody’s going to win this election in a national landslide. Those don’t happen anymore. Trump could lose. Will he? That depends on what he runs on.”
President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale has noted that Trump will be running his re-election campaign based on the strong national economy, not immigration or cultural issues:

Lou: "You didn't mention border security, you didn't mention immigration."
Parscale: "Well I think on immigration he's already in the winning column."

Carlson believes that this is the recipe for snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, considering negative public opinion regarding structural economic issues. He points to student loan debt as a massive problem that Republicans simply offer no solutions for, and this could open the door for socialist Bernie Sanders to steal independent voters from Trump.
“Bernie Sanders may get the Democratic nomination,” Carlson said. “If he does, every Republican in Washington will spend the next 10 months reminding you that socialism doesn’t work, and never has. They’ll be right, obviously,” Carlson explained.
“But if Sanders pledges to forgive student loans, he’ll still win many thousands of voters who went for Donald Trump last time. Debt is crushing an entire generation of Americans. Republicans need a plan to make it better, or they’ll be left behind,” he added.
Carlson notes that the public will consider the false promises of socialism if Republicans fail to offer solutions to the problems plaguing millions of Americans.
“They’re conservative in the most basic sense: They love their families above all,” the host explained. “They distrust radical theories of anything because they know that when the world turns upside down, ordinary people get hurt. They don’t want to burn it down. They just want things to get better. The candidate who promises to make them better – incrementally, but tangibly – will be inaugurated president a year from today.”
The entire rant can be seen here:
Right now, the Real Clear Politics polling average shows Sanders beating Trump by a narrow 48-45 margin. Sanders is surging in the Democratic polls, even pulling ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden, and may be considered the front-runner to take the nomination for the Democrats.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
