Fox News host Tucker Carlson has frequently blistered vulture capitalist Paul Singer, the globalist hedge fund leader who has devastated communities with his unethical business practices, on his prime-time show this week.
Carlson criticized Singer for his role in the devastation of Sidney, Nebraska, which used to be the location of Cabela’s headquarters until Singer used his Wall Street pull to facilitate a sale to rival company Bass Pro Shop in 2016. Sanger made tens of millions because of his shady maneuvering, but thousands of Sidney residents lost their jobs as a direct result.
Carlson called out Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) for being silent about the plight of Sidney, and suggested that the anti-Trump legislator was cowed because he was afraid to upset the GOP establishment donor class. Sasse’s office issued a response to Carlson’s claims.
“Melissa and I know the families in Sidney and I have constantly told companies, including Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops, that nobody outworks or out hustles Nebraskans,” Sasse’s office said.
“Sidney hasn’t given up and neither have we. There’s a real problem with American communities coming apart, and it’s going to require creative policy making. But this problem isn’t going to be solved by the easy, over-promising big government advocates on either the left or the right,” the statement concluded.
Carlson was not happy with Sasse’s “bumper sticker slogans from 1986” about the evils of big government. He is demanding real solutions, rather than the tired lip service that Americans have tuned out for years.
“Creative policy making is what Senator Sasse says we need, and of course we agree with him,” Carlson said. “First, call it what it is. This wasn’t creative destruction. Nothing was created. It was just destruction. Destruction for the enrichment of a tiny number of people at the expense of many others. You don’t have to make this illegal to call it disgusting. Because that’s exactly what it is. So our first creative policy ought to be to tell the truth.”
He also believes that Sasse and other Republican lawmakers should return donations from Singer, and end their association with the reviled GOP paymaster.
“If one of your biggest donors turned out to be a pornographer or a mass distributor of Oxycontin, you’d send back the donation,” Carlson said. “You wouldn’t want to be associated with someone like that. You would want to be clear about your own values. Senator Sasse should be clear about his.”
Carlson then challenged Republicans to drop the weak talking points, and start addressing the issues that matter.
“Republican senators ought to resolve to speak to the rest of us like adults,” he said.. “No more baby talk. Stop with the bumper sticker phrases from 1986. It’s a different country now. The question isn’t whether we are getting big government. Too late. We already have it, in part thanks to you, Republican senators.”
“The question is whether we will become a socialist country run by a terrifying alliance of authoritarian big tech moguls and wild eyed identity politics cult members. That could happen. We are closer to it than our leaders acknowledge,” Carlson added.

As Biden Eyes “Transition Away” From Fossil Fuels, Pennsylvania is Second-Largest Natural Gas Producer in US
Destroying Pennsylvanian jobs.
Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.
Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution.

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.
Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.
The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.
Biden also said he’s talking about “getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels. But we’re not going to get rid of fossil fuels for a long time.”

A study from the American Petroleum Industry indicates that more than 322,000 Pennsylvanians are employed by the natural gas industry that Biden wants to transition away from.
Pennsylvania is shaping up as the most critical swing state in the election, and in nearly every plausible election night scenario the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes secures the 270 needed to win the election.
Perhaps Joe Biden should transition away from national politics, and leave policy answers relating to carbon emissions, the environment and a strong energy industry to those more considerate of the role of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and around the country.
