Tucker’s Unforgivable Transgression

Wednesday, April 26th, 2023
Truth he was forbidden to tell

Can a man be reformed, truly?  I do not know.  Tucker Carlson is an interesting figure, and I believe he would be the first to admit that he had never been an innocent.  His world has ever been that place so many now call the Swamp, but I think it deserves another name.  Washington DC is a literal Hell on Earth if you know how to look at it.  What gives it this character is much less its physical form, but more overwhelmingly, the dominating mindset of those who oversee its operations.  Bongino and others have remarked that Carlson could not have known what was coming as his last show went to tape on Friday, but I wonder.  Did he not have an inkling?  As he enjoyed pizza in the studio, was he sending a Friday message even as he signed off to his viewers, telling them he’d be back Monday?  The speech he gave at the Heritage Foundation hinted at it too, and as if to confirm it, he spoke at length about his admiration for those who speak the truth even while belittling his own efforts as those of a talkshow host. I watched the video of his remarks to Heritage, on Saturday when it was posted by Sundance over at TheConservativeTreeHouse, and it struck me odd even before news of his ouster spread like wildfire at lunchtime, Monday. Tucker said many things worthy of note in his speech, and in the brief Q&A afterward, but there was one important take-away that sounded like a reflection of my own thoughts about the direction of our country.  I think Tucker did know what was coming, even if he didn’t know the precise date, but more, I think he understands what’s coming for us all, and it’s time that we wrestle with the truth of it.

The important thing Tucker discussed is that which I have been telling readers in somewhat less direct form for many months now, really since the election of 2020: This is no longer a matter of a debate between equals in a political fight about how things ought best be done.  As Tucker asserted flatly in his speech, this is no longer a political debate between people or parties or competing ideologies about the best way to obtain an agreed-upon goal.  The truth is that I’ve not believed that for quite a long time now, as my longer-term readers will surely recognize.  In the time of my youth, I would hear Republicans defending their policy prescriptions by explaining that they have the same essential goals as the Democrats, but merely different means for arriving at them.  In such a seemingly affable state, surely an argument over specific policy implementations could not possibly be too Earth-shattering.  By the time I’d become a young adult, however, I began to doubt the sincerity or truth of this assertion.  The intended objectives of policy seemed too broadly divergent to ever obtain even approximately similar results.

It was then that I began to question the actual intentions of politicians and bureaucrats.  Their policy prescriptions and the laws they proposed seemed impossibly at variance with the alleged and oft-stated goals upon which they would campaign.  For instance, one of the things I noted fairly early on had been the fact that wherever there was greater gun control, there was greater violence, but wherever there was more broad-based legal gun ownership, there was markedly less violence.  In light of this clear evidence, facts now unassailably true for more than two generations, I could not understand how people could at once claim to be concerned with the lives and safety of their constituents while advancing policies that demonstrably made them less safe.  At a certain point, the notion of arguing policy distinctions with such people began to lose merit in my eyes, particularly when it became clear that no matter the amount of evidence that accumulated, they stubbornly rejected such facts and tried to spin their meaning or reinterpret statistics in the most ham-handed, obviously biased way.  More, the media seemed not only unconcerned with the facts, but they went out of their way to help the gun control advocates spin their statistics, misrepresenting the truth to their audiences.

All of this began to concern me when I realized that this had begun to happen with every issue, from abortion to zoning laws. This is the point at which you realize that this isn’t an argument among friends any longer, if it ever was, and that what had once been a friendly debate is now one group shouting dicta at another, at first cursing them for disobedience, but later resorting to coercion, and finally violence.  When you realize that the policies being pursued can never have anything but a terrible result, it suddenly dawns on you that the people driving toward those ends are not in fact pursuing the same goals you had chased in earnest exertions.  Instead, you realize that these are evil people, and that they are pursuing the most evil outcomes possible.  This realization by Carlson may have been his moment of true reformation, or at least, it may have spurred him to it.  Tucker Carlson realized that the cabal, or the DC Mafia, or the UniParty, or whatever you wish to label them, are not a political operation but instead a theological one.  Their religion is one that, as Carlson listed, pursues as its ends: “violence, hate, disorder, division, disorganization, and filth.”  This is evil.

In describing some of the evils, Carlson referenced “child sacrifice” twice, and “human sacrifice.” He was not kidding, and neither am I.  The people arrayed against us, using power and politics as their means, are inflicting direct evil, all the while attempting to indoctrinate you and your children to join them in the despicable orgy of it all.  Once upon a time, you might have assumed, as did I in my youth, that evil is not a thing with which you need be concerned if you are stubbornly good.  By now, all of us over thirty should have learned that this is not so.  Just because you are not at war does not mean your enemy, even one unknown to you, hadn’t been at war with you.  We’ve seen this phenomenon too many times to count, from ancient times to modern.  The vapid 9/11 Commission, ever two days late and ten dollars short, managed even in its final report to acknowledge that fact: We had not acknowledged a war with al-Qaida, but that didn’t prohibit them from making war against us.

I have repeatedly counselled in these pages that we are being governed by an occupying enemy parading around as our legitimate government.  You have seen it, and whether Carlson indeed knew that the hammer’s blow would soon fall upon him, he recognized that the enemy is real, and it is evil, and it is making war upon us. He identified one of its many overt evils, human sacrifice, even as he described one particular form of it, but what you are watching now is the sacrifice of a whole nation to the idols they worship, whatever their names.  These vile people are not motivated by any human good, even while they posture as its champions.  Openly now, their demented resident tells you that even your children are not yours, but are theirs.

For decades, generations really, you have listened to their assurances that their intentions are good, such that you should forgive them their occasional excesses, excesses they claim that are born only of their zealous concern for your welfare.  All these years, you’ve listened to their lousy spokespersons in the so-called ‘media’ pretend that they had ever been guided with a desire to care for the poor, the disaffected, the down-trodden, and the disenfranchised, never telling you that it is they who are making you poor, disaffecting you from one another, grinding you under foot, while disenfranchising you at every conceivable turn. They have divided women from men; black from white from red from yellow from brown. They have divided the young and the old; rich and poor; brother and sister; husband and wife; parent and child. All the while, they have never relinquished their objectives or their demands.

What Tucker Carlson said in his speech at Heritage was unforgivable.  He told you the truth: You are beset by evil, and that evil isn’t interested in any debates, discussions, or deliberations.  They are going to issue dicta, and you are damned-well going to comply, even as they destroy you. Don’t ask “who are the human sacrifices?”

You are.

Here is Carlson’s complete speech at the Heritage Foundation:

FoxNews Will Be Saved By Conscious Vegetables

Tuesday, April 25th, 2023

Will the one-click lifers even notice?

I’ve made no secret in the past about my feelings regarding Tucker Carlson. I viewed him as a spoiled brat who’s had his sobriety issues, and he’s entirely a creature of the swamp. Carlson has claimed in recent years to have reformed, and while that may be true, I must admit that once burned, I’m slow to return to a position in which trust will be offered again, if ever. I think my disdain for Carlson hit its high point when he referred to then Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as the “supreme commander of milfistan.” I had to look it up. I’d never heard the term MILF before, and frankly, from that moment forward, I considered Carlson a purveyor of filth and slime posing as a journalist. On the surface, by the time he was brought on for Tucker Carlson Tonight, he seems to have reformed himself, but with a mouth like that, I’m going to require some convincing. Did he ever apologize for such things? Part of the reformation process is to seek forgiveness and to atone for past transgressions. Did he? I have no idea.  This is why for me, despite the fact that Carlson has been saying some very interesting things since taking over the 8pm Eastern slot on FoxNews, I’m not willing to watch that network.  You see, they began their betrayal of conservatives some years ago, and on the 3rd of November 2020, they consummated that betrayal.  Oddly, a large proportion of their audience was too thick-skulled to notice.  This is why I believe Fox News won’t see much harm from getting rid of Carlson.  After all, they were already going to take a bath due to the very strange settlement of the Dominion case, so adding Carlson to this was a relative drop in the bucket.  Most of their audience, too lazy to learn how to use devices like ROKU or similar, will continue to lap-up their thin gruel because it’s too much trouble to learn a new technology that’s been around for half a generation now.  Fox News won’t be hurt because too many in their audience are lazy, and FNC knows it.  They bank on it.  They expect them to be shallow and forgetful, but they’re not alone.

If this sounds like a criticism of the audience of Fox News, you’re right, but it’s not just Fox. A large number of the 45+ audience is just too damned intellectually lazy for their own good.  They still watch CBS news every evening, or NBC, or ABC, or PBS, or naturally Fox, not because they prefer it over the alternatives, but because they’ve NEVER SEEN THE ALTERNATIVES and worse, don’t want to.  These are the people who abhor any change, even change for the better, and they’re the people who are driving this country directly off a cliff.  It’s not that they’re too stupid to understand how to use a streaming device.  It’s not that they don’t have Internet connections.  It’s that they’re so change-averse and so comfortable in the same old habits that they’ll go to their graves still pining for the days of Walter Cronkite and all the other crypto-communists who delivered them the news for decades.

It’s not that they have any malice for the country, except that they despise change to an unnatural extent.  They’ve sat in a chair at the same place at the same time looking at a screen located in the same relative position in the room, and gee, it’s only been five years since they got this new TV and they still don’t know what all the buttons on the remote do.

“There’s that one I pressed by accident that one time, has some green logo that says “Hulu” on it and I couldn’t find my damned programs for two days.”

Don’t laugh.  These people exist, and some of them read this web-page occasionally.  I heard from them in droves eleven years ago when I moved this site onto a separate platform from, because by gosh, they had to change their saved hyperlinks, and that always takes them “half a damned day.”  Of course, in truth, even that crowd grudgingly made the change, but there is a broad and inflexible element in our country, and in every country, that detests change so much that they’ll do anything to avoid it.  Just wait until they discover electric charging stations and the new Hell that’s going to inflict on their lives.  Wait until they find out they need a digital health pass(vaccine passport) to use their new Central Bank Digital Currency and that they’ll only be permitted to spend it where and when they’re told.  They will initially flip out, and then they’ll passively comply.  They may hate change, but they hate friction even more.

This is why Fox News will continue pretty much as before.  The people described above like putting the TV on one channel and leaving it there, in perpetuity.  They don’t want to be forced to think or choose or discriminate among a myriad of options, including many better alternatives.  That’s just too damned much friction.  I would pity these people, but for the fact that they’re dooming the lot of us.  They won’t go to a damned school board meeting, or a county commissioners’ court, or a congressman’s town hall, or get involved in much of anything.  They’re like conscious vegetables.  They consume content, but produce very little of their own.  Most of them barely make a grunt most days.  They won’t challenge their own alleged political party, because that would mean friction, and we damned-well know how they feel about that.  If the Republicans tell them they won’t put Trump on the ballot in various states, these people will accept it.  If the election is corrupted, they won’t say a word.  If there is anything that causes them the slightest discomfort, they’ll surrender.  Meet the bulk of the Fox News audience.  It’s no different than the bulk of the CBS audience.  Or the NBC audience.  If it requires more than a press of a power button, they don’t want to know about it:  Too much friction.

These are and have been the people truly destroying America for generations.  They’ve watched, mostly in silence, except perhaps to their spouses seated beside them, as Presidents have been murdered, removed, and defamed.  They’ve watched as soldiers are sent into bloodbaths that have served no purpose but provide them another reason to look away from their screens.  They’ve watched as we’ve gone from normalizing homosexuality to the brink of normalizing pedophilia, and still, they watch mostly in silence, but unwilling to act lest an action create more friction.  They’ve watched the politicians for years vote away their money into the abyss of another black hole in a bureaucratic agency without batting an eye.  They want not merely to be left alone, but they want to be left alone so badly that they’re willing to see their lives stripped from them in payment of the privilege.  Freedom doesn’t matter to this sort.  Freedom requires effort, and that’s more damned friction, don’t you know?

As your civilization collapses, don’t wait for these to be roused from their living graves.  They’re already dead, and that’s why Fox News isn’t worried.  It’s why even in the longer run, Anheuser-Busch will make a complete recovery.

  “Buycott?  Sounds like more damned friction to me, Mabel.”


“Streaming service? Now I have to learn how to use another remote control and worse, the full functions of the one I already have?  Two remotes? Henry, how can you expect me to do all of that?  Can’t we just watch Fox News?  I miss that Tucker fellow, but that Kilmeade guy seems okay.  He’s a bit humorless, but I can live with him.  Dan Rather didn’t have a sense of humor either, after all.”

While some will assume it’s a question of age, that’s only partly the issue.  You see the same thing in some younger folk, but it seems to be the tendency of humans as they age to seek the state of lowest energy.  I’m not immune to this either.  The problem is that the lowest state of energy a human can attain is ‘dead.”  I tend to agree with Dan Bongino when he says “Don’t get dead,” but it seems the first death happens between the ears, then in the soul, and finally in the body.  Too many Americans numbering among the technically living have already assumed either the first or second state of death, and nothing much seems to faze them.

This is why Fox News isn’t worried, but neither is the GOP establishment or the DC Mafia.  These one-button-lifers will never discover there had been an alternative, and they’re just fine with it.  Don’t count on these people.  Don’t expect them to act.  Even as the mobs burn their homes to the ground, they will sit there in disbelief, wondering why anybody would cause them friction.  You see, the source of the friction for them is anything that requires them to think and to reason.  They don’t like to be in the position to rely upon their minds, and it may not even be because their minds are inferior, but simply because thinking is hard.  It requires a kind of discipline they’d just as soon not be compelled to practice.

Many will be quick to point out that I’ve repeatedly made reference to the fact that I avoid popular culture.  This is true.  I avoid it because it tends to clutter the mind with too many meaningless things.  The one way in which the popular culture provides any use to me is that on occasion, it’s a short-cut to understanding, for instance in comparing something observed in a movie to what might be seen in real life: You can describe that movie scene and people will understand its application because so many of them will have seen it.  I try not to rely on this very often, because on the one hand, I have so completely fallen away from popular culture that any references I’m likely to make are dated and particularly among the young, will be pointless.  Also, I recognize that this is a lazy way of communicating an idea, and while very effective in some instances, it is nevertheless a shortcut that should be avoided.  In short, I’m willing to spend the time thinking about it.

This is not true for our one-button-lifers, who will probably be the death of us all.  I’ve tried many times to rouse them from their one-button dependency, but it doesn’t seem to work.  Even if I can convince them to try something new for a day or two, maybe even a week, they quickly return to the comfort of their single button.  In a few cases, it causes them to change the destination of the single button, but it doesn’t modify the habit.  I once wondered how one might convince a crazy person to change their actions in light of their craziness.  The sad answer is that you can’t.  I view the one-button-lifers as another form of crazy, albeit expressed in a different way.  Perhaps there is some rational argument one might make to them such that they change their habits and thereby change their lives, but I’ve not discovered it.  In the end, my observation has been that once they get to the point of soul death, there is no chance of saving them.  They no longer care to be saved, and are simply waiting for the final, physical death.  It’s sad to watch, but it’s sadder still to know that we depend to a degree on these people to help us save our country and our world.  We should have learned by now that there will be no help from that quarter, but we should also recognize that the Fox News Channel and all the other undying media outlets of the world rely on this same habitual one-click living.  They’re not worried.  The so-called “Deep State” isn’t worried.  They know.  One-click lifers are the most reliable people living on Earth; Democrats know the only votes more reliable are no longer among the living.


I Stand With Bannon (Post with Video)

Friday, July 22nd, 2022

In this video interview with Tucker Carlson on Friday evening, after his conviction on two counts of “contempt of Congress,” Bannon said the essential thing about the truth of this case, and I stand with him.

Bannon isn’t backing down. He’s not backing up. I love the attitude, and it explains why despite the complaints of some, he was a good fit at Breitbart. If you don’t understand why I’d say that, let me remind you:

I love an intelligent fighter willing to get down in the gutter with the slimeballs sent against us.  Like Bannon, I support Trump, and I support the Constitution, and I’m not backing down either. We are now in a war for the republic.  It’s not yet gone kinetic, and we all wish to avoid that, but if you’re still sitting on the sidelines, you’d better decide soon whether you’re going to side with the DC Mafia that has betrayed our constitution and our people, or whether you’re going to stand with those fighting to preserve what our founders brought forth onto this land.  It’s time to get into the fight now, like never before.  All assets are being deployed against us.  The coup is consolidating in our national capital, and if we let it take up easy residence too long, it will be permanent. They’re wrecking our country as we look on.
