WATCH: Tucker Carlson Rips John Bolton a New One

Published

on

Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently went off on John Bolton.

He described former national security advisor John Bolton’s departure from the Trump administration as “great news for America.”

Carlson explained that Bolton’s resignation is great news for “the large number of young people who would have been killed in pointless wars if Bolton had stayed on the job.” He added, “They may not be celebrating tonight, but they should be.”

The Fox News host poked fun at both Democrats and Republicans worried about Bolton’s exit from the Trump administration and the circumstances surrounding it, claiming that they’re overlooking the actual details of Bolton’s neoconservative agenda and the foreign policy failures he continues to defend.

He highlighted his previous segment with Bolton where he called out the former Fox News contributor’s “selective amnesia” and refusal to own up to his mistakes. Additionally, Carlson played clips of his previous warning about Bolton having power in D.C. again.

The staunch America First commentator even argued that Bolton is actually “a man of the left”  and was in fact “one of the most progressive people in the Trump administration.

He expanded:

If you’re wondering why so many progressives are mourning Bolton’s firing tonight, it’s because Bolton himself fundamentally was a man of the left. There was not a human problem John Bolton wasn’t totally convinced could be solved with the brute force of government. That’s an assumption of the left, not the right. Don’t let the mustache fool you. John Bolton was one of the most progressive people in the Trump administration. By the way, naturally, once he was ensconced there, Bolton promoted Obama loyalists within the National Security Council. That shouldn’t surprise you either.

Carlson nails it in his criticism of Bolton.

Bolton represented one of the most subversive neoconservative elements within the Trump administration.

His presence practically ensured the perpetuation of the defense industry’s interests in the Trump era and served as a hidden force working behind the shadows to undermine Trump’s restrained foreign policy agenda.

With Bolton out of the way, Trump can re-assert more of his America First principles and get his administration in line.

There is no question that Trump still has to clean up his administration, but getting Bolton out of the way is a good first step.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
