8 PM host Tucker Carlson joined President Donald Trump in the de-militarized zone in Korea during his post-G20 junket that included a meeting with Kim Jong Un. Trump entered into North Korea on invitation from Kim.
John Bolton was not in Korea, instead taking a less historic sojourn to Mongolia.
Tucker, who gets some credit for stopping the recent war with Iran that almost happened, would make a much better adviser than Bolton, and also a better adviser than Sean Hannity, due to the fact that Tucker Carlson has a high IQ and also a set of ethics.
The DMZ meeting was all about shaping a narrative. That is why John Bolton, the ultra-hawkish national security adviser, was nowhere to be seen; he had been sent, or sent himself, to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. But the official US party included Tucker Carlson, a Fox News talkshow host, who is Trump’s principal channel to the non-interventionist section of his far-right base. Eleventh-hour conversations with Carlson reportedly persuaded Trump not to launch missiles against Iran this month, after the downing of a US drone.
Guardian passage ends
8 PM host Tucker Carlson should be getting paid more than anyone else at Fox News. The “America First” journalist’s presence on the Fox airwaves is the only thing keeping most independent-minded Americans from ditching the Murdoch-owned network once and for all, thus sparing Fox from the populist backlash that the Murdochs should probably realize is coming for them.
Fox News did it to themselves by becoming a controlled-opposition Quisling network with contempt for their own viewers. Tucker, on the other hand, is our guy. So if Fox ever bends to Media Matters pressure to fire Tucker Carlson, they will be declaring war against the very people who still reluctantly put up with their vengeful conservative monopoly. It would be a bad move for them. Since Generals MacArthur and Patton never telegraphed to the enemy what was coming ahead of time, we won’t spoil any surprises. But yeah, Fox News would be wise not to mess with our guy.
Tucker Carlson is the real deal, the conscience of Big Conservative Media, the last standard-bearer (along with Big League Politics) preventing a bunch of Fox-branded grifters from just going around telling people that America First is really about constant foreign wars or a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, or whatever. By nature, Trump is happy with anybody who just perfunctorily supports him (READ: The Trump Administration) so it’s important to have principled ideologues on the outside.
I happen to believe that Donald Trump is a great president — the only guy who even halfway agrees with us who could have won the 2016 election — but it’s important not to allow the Trump administration to completely hijack the “America First” brand, which existed powerfully before Trump. Trump is the man, don’t get me wrong. I even called him the “Best President Ever” after his recent CPAC speech, and I mean it. The stuff he does that has nothing to do with policy — serving McDonald’s in the White House, for instance — is so awesome that he helps us inspire people, to keep the movement going after Trump.
But what would that movement look like if the Blue Check Conservative Pundits get to define it? Would it look like Nikki Haley being the “MAGA” candidate in 2024? With many real Trump supporters banned from the Internet, we increasingly have to play ball with neocons who hate our very existence. The Trump people never drew a line in the sand. So Trump’s message gets muddied.
Fox News is the worst offender.
The Fox News greenroom is what it would look like if the Deep State tried to throw a very bizarre Hollywood party in 1995. You’ve got Geraldo and other OJ-Era celebrities hanging out (is Mark Fuhrman still on there?) plus some former colonels who make their living bashing Trump, and then some totally extraneous comedians and B-list actresses. Somehow, Shep Smith got in there, and Juan Williams, and Dana Perino. Yawn.
Look no further than Election Night 2018, when Karl Rove (really, Karl Rove) was the main star as the Republicans did their Deep State-sanctioned “Losing” act, calling House races early in the night to make it seem like the voters were rejecting Trump’s agenda, instead of the real truth, which is that quisling Paul Ryan threw the race with the help of a bunch of thankfully-retiring RINO’s. But Rove pretended to be optimistic on Fox for months ahead of the election, which only made it easier for Big Conservative Media to ignore our urgent reporting on then-candidates Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Look no further than Jesse Watters (for reference, he was the “man on the street” comedian guy on the O’Reilly Factor, and now they let him talk about politics) actually telling (warning?) Michelle Malkin to apologize for her CPAC speech bashing the Do-Nothing Republican Establishment and urging them to fight on the only issue that matters: the erasure of our borders and globalist subjugation of our people through mass immigration.
Hey, buddy, Michelle Malkin is a real writer and she doesn’t apologize to you, or to the corporate suits who tell you what to say.
Then there’s Sean Hannity, who is pretty much Lindsey Graham’s sidekick at this point in his own 9 PM time slot. Does Sean Hannity want to run for president in 2024 with the Trump brand? I sincerely hope not. For a real populist, looking at Sean Hannity’s face is a trying experience. Because we all remember how Sean made his bones, by being a main media propagandist for Fox News’ Iraq War. Has Sean ever apologized for blindly, selfishly leading our people into the most destructive foreign policy disaster in American history? It wouldn’t matter anyway. The American blood has already been shed. Sean makes a whole lot of money (unlike the black people he evicts from their apartments), but all the money in the world can’t buy salvation.
Don’t worry, we’ll lay off you during the re-election year, Sean, but we’ll never forget.
Tucker is the Dean. Show some respect.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.
— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) March 30, 2020
Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
