The world's most viewed site on global warming and climate change
Tucker Carlson Tonight
Fox News host Tucker Carlson calls out outrageous leftist ideas to help the environment on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’
More stinger missiles are needed to take down “code red” balloons. In fact, stinger missiles are effective at reducing all kinds of climate footprints.

michael crichton on global warming
Much as I like Michael Crichton, he’s being far too “accommodating” in this interview.
Much more needs to be challenged. His first question to the interviewer shoud have been “What makes you think that a warmer climate is WORSE?!”
And he should have INSTANTLY pounced on the “90%agree” crap. Not only is it NOT TRUE in terms of the “agreement” being equal to the “actions” being demanded, but IT DOESN’T MATTER how many “agree,” the substance of the argument is what counts in SCIENCE. And THERE IS NO SUBSTANCE to their argument. There is ZERO empirical evidence that CO2 “drives” temperature.
Well, the climate cult does fit Eric Hoffer’s description of a Mass Movement in “The True Believer”. So did the NSDAP, with similar end times theology.
Constant scare marketing with dogged policy pursuit works regardless of the product or the real need. In the distant future when natural cooling cycles become obvious beyond short term effects like ENSO, it will be easy to just say “oh well, we still needed to do it” a la Tim Wirth. It’s basically a no-lose mass distortion of the economy for the promoters with untold numbers of victims based on non-science and failed models.
While I applaud the sentiment in this Tucker segment, the recent Dominion case revelations show him (and Fox) to be a less than honest broker of information and thereby not the best spokesperson for much of anything.
The Dominion Voting Systems civil lawsuit against Fox News will go to trial in April, 2023. Revelations? Yea, but what does the other guy say? It sure looks like a couple of Fox News contributors, Sidney Powell and Rudi Giuliani come to mind, went wild with accusations and theories, but these kinds of lawsuits need to be heard in full and adjudicated…wait for it.
Yup, giving these kooks a platform to exercise their right to free speech was the worst thing that any news organization has ever done. They should have censored themselves. What they did was far worse than the other net works – CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC – giving a platform to Adam Schiff, Morning Joe, Brian Stelter, Racheal Maddow and their frequent guests like Brenner, Clapper and many others from the left did with the Trump/Russia disinformation campaign. At least the Fox people recognized that Powell and Rudi where nuts, but in the US even nuts should get to say what they think.
Was the election rigged by Dominion machines? Probably not. Was it influenced by the suppression of Hunter’s laptop by the FBI and CIA in concert with Twitter, Facebook, et. al. – you could make a pretty damn good case.
Funny that Nelson Mandela who was idolized by most American politicians said that without a photo ID and other measures an election would not be able to prevent fraud. I did not share his world view but do not think he was a kook with this observation. And by the way I believe that standards of journalism in mainstream media have fallen to their lowest level since WWII.
Were I to dismiss all news sources that have a single accusation (as yet unproven) against them, I would have zero news sources. Actually negative since I would have to remove CNN many times over.
If you have a dispute with this story, by all means voice it. Else you are just a troll trying to detract from the actual story and have zero credibility.
The people at Fox claim the quotes are taken out of context. Standard operating procedure for lawsuits and for the leftwing media.
Anyone who thinks Tucker Carson is credible on any level is removed from reality. Holding him up as some sort of knowledgable authority on climate is ludicrous and shows how desperate climate skeptics are. They will quote anyone, even TC as long as he pushes their story. Let’s not forget he got off a slander charge because a judge said “The ‘general tenor’ of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not ‘stating actual facts’ about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in ‘exaggeration’ and ‘non-literal commentary.’ ”
And the revelations this week endorse this and show the depths of morality the media on the right stoop to, to promote their arguments. Here we had Fox pushing the election fraud lie, all the time knowing what they were peddling was complete nonsense and was to the detriment of democracy in the US. That is about as low as the media can get. Disgusting!!!!
So, you’re attacking Tucker Carlson because he’s Tucker Carlson?
What did he actually say that you think is not right on?
Simon doesn’t deal with facts.
Carlson isn’t a fellow traveler, therefore he’s always wrong.
Carlson… like you Mark… just makes stuff up and only the gullible see him as credible which explains a lot your love of him.
Basically EVERYTHING Simon Says is a farce..
Its comments are HATE-BASED Marxism from the ground up.
Facts and REALITY are the very last thing on its tiny little mind.
“Basically EVERYTHING Simon Says is a farce..”
OK Mr b nice…. explain this. How do you have any semblance of respect for a man, who while texting his mates, was agreeing that Trumps big lie was just that, a big lie, but on show after show pushed that it was truth and in doing so was clearly undermining democracy? Looking forward to your response.
Hilarious.. you continue to slime and ooze….
… while continuing to be totally unable to counter one word said in the Tucker report above
Do you realise how PATHETIC that makes you look !
I’ll ask again because this is the focus of my comment re Carlson. How do you have any semblance of respect for a man, who while texting his mates, was agreeing that Trumps big lie was just that, a big lie, but on show after show pushed that it was truth and in doing so was clearly undermining democracy?
Because, being a actor essentially, he is stating things publically that are at least questionable privately?
When his lies fail to gain traction, he just keeps repeating them.
Probably one of the most gross, gormless and disingenuous attempts at changing the subject you have ever tried.
You have failed.!
The subject is the Tucker Report above.
And you continue your evasion-of-truth attempts, because you KNOW that basically every word of it is the TRUTH. !
“And you continue your evasion-of-truth attempts, because you KNOW that basically every word of it is the TRUTH. !”
OK I’ll play your silly game. Here is an untruth Carslon said
“Now even the president of the United States is warning that world is ending.”
No he’s not. Biden said that climate change is a threat to humanity not that the world is ending. Very different things. But in classic Carlson fashion he(like the judge says he does) exaggerates because that is what his audience want. He’s an entertainer and a propagandist nothing more.
That’s a criticism of Carlson? I think if humanity ends, it could certainly be described as the end of the world, for humanity certainly.
You want to interpret it literally. Maybe Carlson interprets it a little differently. I don’t see anything sinister in the comment.
No Tom that is not right. Lots of things are a threat to humans. They don’t mean the world is going to end. It’s typical Carlson exaggeration propaganda. “Oh look Biden thinks the world is going to end ….” but Biden never said that, so it is wrong.
When one lie doesn’t work, bring in new lies.
Fascinating how lies promoted by fellow travelers aren’t challenged, while facts promoted by those who you disagree with are dismissed as lies.
” When one lie doesn’t work, bring in new lies.” That certainly seems to be a long held strategy by MIUMark.
You seem to think that just because the bosses don’t “believe” a certain statement, a reporter should not REPORT what has been said by people of interest.
That is an ultra-marxist totalitarian viewpoint..
We expect nothing else from you.
Certainly no counter to the FACTS put forward.
“That is an ultra-marxist totalitarian viewpoint..”
OK I see what I am dealing with now…… Let’s just leave it there.
In other words, after repeating his lies three times, Simon gives up. Everyone here is obviously too stupid to recognize Simon’s brilliance.
Anyone with even the remotest intelligence will have Simon pegged as a worthless, gormless, twit , with basically zero comprehension of science, physics etc etc etc
You have been dealing with being a marxist all your life..
I know you are total putz, but stop complaining about yourself.
You are speaking in Generalities, Simon.
How about detailing your complaint with exact quotes from the characters involved?
Which “Big Lie” are you referring to? About the voting machines? About the thousands of corrupt votes that were cast in the election?
I don’t know about the voting machines, but I do know that thousands of corrupt votes were cast in the 2020 election. Enough votes to swing the election. There’s no denying that. The only problem is we don’t know who those corrupt votes went to.
Maybe we’ll get a do-over in the near future.
“but I do know that thousands of corrupt votes were cast in the 2020 election.”
Well according to the guy who was appointed by Trump to oversee the election that is not true.
“Enough votes to swing the election. There’s no denying that.” So why did Hannity, Ingraham and Carlson think Trumps big lie was BS, because that’s what they called it. And as I recall so did Trump’s attorney general BIll Barr, and his own daughter and pretty much every judge the attempts to overturn the election were put in front of……
” So why did Hannity, Ingraham and Carlson think Trumps big lie was BS, because that’s what they called it.”
Got a quote? Did they say that there were not enough illegitimate votes to swing the election? I bet they did not. Prove me wrong.
Sorry got back to this late…. Here are the quotes. Clearly they thought it was all nonsense.
“That whole narrative that Sidney was pushing, I did not believe it for one second,” Sean Hannity
Tucker Carlson told a producer soon after the election that Powell “is lying” about voter fraud, the documents show. Carlson would text Fox News host Laura Ingraham the same thing later in the month, adding that “it’s insane” and “it’s unbelievably offensive to me. Our viewers are good people and they believe it.”
“She is a f—— nutcase,” wrote Carlson’s producer, Alex Pfeiffer, referring to Powell.
Notice how Simon once again, doesn’t attempt to support any of his claims. Instead he attacks those who disagree with him and amps up the insults.
Unlike you, I’ve documented everything that I’ve been challenged on, and I didn’t have to use known propaganda sites to do it.
Like most socialists, you define everything you disagree with as a lie.
PS: Where did I say I watch him, much less love him. That is so typical of you Simon, when challenged, you immediately attack the other person instead of defending your claims.
And look who “Simon” ‘s source is, the PBS NewsHour. That’s the news outlet that has excluded skeptic climate scientists’ detailed science assessments from its program ever since 1996, if not earlier. Paragon of news reporting trustworthiness, they are …..
“NewsHour Global Warming Bias Tally, Updated 1/23/23: 111 to 0“
I have numerous sources. Didn’t realise I had to have them vetted by you.
Mr. Simon complains that TC is a bad source. Mr. Cook complains about Simon’s source. Simon complains about the shoe on his other foot. Fruitful discussion you are leading here, Simon.
“Mr. Simon complains that TC is a bad source. ” I didn’t just say he was a bad source. I said is way worse than that. He is a misleading, propagandist, fraud. Carlson is a clown who is loved by the less intelligent members of the right, because he throws them red meat to sink their racist bigoted teeth into. Other than that he’s a great guy.
The list of left wing misleading, propagandist, frauds is too long to list. “Simple Simon met a PIE MAN (misleading, propagandist, fraud) on the way to the fair. Oh ok, Simon said – I will follow you and believe in you, said Simple Simon
“Simple Simon met a PIE MAN ” Brilliant repartee. I am humbled by your wit.
Given the abysmal quality of the sources you have cited in the past, I’m not surprised that you fail to reveal them this time.
“So, you’re attacking Tucker Carlson because he’s Tucker Carlson?”
No, I’m attacking Carlson because he has a long history of making stuff up and even the courts say he is not credible. Clearly he is not fit to be anywhere near the truth. If you can’t see that then your truth filter is well and truely broken.
So again, you are TOTALLY UNABLE to counter one thing he said in this report.
Yes.. we knew that to be the case.. ALWAYS. !
The point is I wouldn’t bother listening to a man who is such a proven fraud.
Gross generalization. Simon, you are obviously not a regular viewer of Tucker. You get your allegations, not from personal experience, but from “fact-checkers,” and/or the gutter media.
You are torqued because Tucker exposes the evil that you support, and he does it in an entertaining way, derisively making fun of you and your ilk.
You don’t deserve to be described as “left” or “right.” You and the “fact-checkers” tarnish the descriptions. Life is not two-dimensional. There is also evil DOWN in the gutter.
Says Simon the simpleton..
…. being unable to counter one word in this report.
Adhom. Very clever. Did you think of that yourself?
Simon whining about adhoms, now that is funny, considering how every argument he has made so far is nothing but an adhom.
“Proven” by who exactly?
“Proven” by who exactly?”
Himself. He sent the texts confirming Trumps big lie was a lie. But he still pushed it on his show. Fraud, crook, phoney, cad. Take your pick.
How odd that all of Trump’s “lies” have proven to be truth.
BTW … criticism is intended to be ad hominem. It would be purposeless otherwise. bnice 2000 was perfectly correct.
“How odd that all of Trump’s “lies” have proven to be truth.”
I’d say how odd anyone could think that given he has a truth to lie record worse than any president in living memory.
“truth to lie record worse than any president in living memory.”
That’s really a description of the lying leftwing news media’s record, that distorts *everything* Trump says. And you buy into all of it.
STILL unable to counter a single point made in this Tucker report
Still SLIMING and DEFLECTING because he know he has NOTHING else to offer with his life.
Once again, Simon refuses to actually support his original claims.
Do you feel the same way about Facebook’s “fact checkers”, after it was admitted in court that they only give their opinions, not facts?
No idea what you are talking about….. I don’t play on Facebook.
dodge weave, duck and cover.
Its hilarious the putrid lengths the slimo will go to to avoid addressing the actual report in the post.
In Simon’s world, anything that fails to follow the far left narrative is either a lie, or just made up.
I start each day reading 48 short articles including mamy here. I do this every day of the year because I enjoy speed reading articles every morning. I believe I am a good judge of whether or not authors know what they are talking about. In my opinion Tucker Carson is generally accurate and you are a fool.
Due Diligence: I watch about the first 30 minutes if every Turcker Carlson show. That’s enough for me after so much reading every morning. I have published articles when I thik Tucker was wrong, but that is not often.
Most 2020 election fraud claims were not nonsense. You are also uneducated on that subject. The primary fraud was through the use of voter rolls including millions of names of people who had left ther states or had died, The next step was ballot harvesting. You obviously know nothing about the subject because you are a useful idiot for the leftist ruling class, and thinking independently is not your skill. Simon.
” In my opinion Tucker Carson is generally accurate and you are a fool.”
OMG…… I may or may not be a fool, but Carlson is a complete phoney. Like I say if you can’t see that then you join me in the fools team.
“Most 2020 election fraud claims were not nonsense.”
Yes they were which is why the courts have had a field day throwing them out.
“The primary fraud was through the use of voter rolls including millions of names of people who had left ther states or had died, ” Of which you have absolutely no evidence except for the ususal idiots who try it on. And let’s not forget my main point. The head three at Fox said in texts they thought it was all BS but still pushed the lie. that is dishonest beyond belief and simply can’t be defended.
The courts never looked at evidence because the ballots themselves were not allowed to be viewed. That is where the fraid was. Illegal ballots counted in key states. The only point you have is the tio of your head
Polling results for 2020 were unprecedented in the history of elections.
Trump won 18 of 19 bellwether counties yet lost the election. Unprecedented in the past 40 years before 2020.
The US Census post-election poll found that people claimed 4 million fewer votes than were actually cast.
In prior polls, people claimed up to 9 million MORE votes than were cast. That discrepancy is caused by many people claiming they voted when they did not actually vote. A common deception. Tdhat the 2020 poll found 4 million MORE votes counted than actually claimed by poll respondents was unprecedented.
Both polls are high level evidence of election fraud that mean nothing in court.
Fraud can only be proven in court using original ballots and original ballot envelopes. Critics could not get those. That’s why future elections will never be honest — there is no penalty for fraud.
There is also no penalty for being stupid, which is lucky for you.
So again.. nothing in what Tucker has said in this report is countered by Simon.
Cannot counter the FACTS of the Carlson Report so tries to slime him another way.
Pathetic as usual.
“…why the courts have had a field day throwing them out.”
Wrong, the courts refused to hear them because of political ramifications.
They couldn’t allow the truth to be examined.
But you knew that, didn’t you.!
“the courts refused to hear them because of political ramifications.”
Yes, I think that’s correct. That applies to the U.S. Supreme Court, too.
When one U.S. State sues another U.S. State, the only arbiter is the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2020 many conservative States tried to sue other States for not following voting laws, but the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case even though they are obligated to do so. All political. All “Justice” Roberts.
There is a problem with suing states for not following election laws. What’s the remedy? Many of the suits that were tossed out because they were filed after the election. On the other hand, filing before the election has been ruled as premature.
Classic catch 22.
Good point. Judges were using any excuse they could think of to not hear the case. They didn’t want the radical Left attacking them.
Once again, Simon doesn’t actually support either his original claims, or any of the new claims he trots out to support his original unsupported claim.
Given this is what the judge wrote in the slander case…”Fox persuasively argues, that given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer ‘arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism’ about the statement he makes.”
I can only assume Mr Greene given our lack of skepticism for the nonsense he spouts, that you don’t fall into the “reasonable viewer” category.
So still absolutely nothing but slug-like sliming to counter this report from Tucker.
It is always the way with Slimon.
“for the nonsense he spouts”
Quote word/sentence from the above report , and provide counter evidence.
Or DON’T ! 😉
The ONLY person sprouting nonsense is YOU, because you have nothing else. !
“Given this is what the judge wrote in the slander case…”Fox persuasively argues, that given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer ‘arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism’ about the statement he makes.””
Simon, could you provide those supposedly damning statements by Carlson so we can judge for ourselves?
Apparently, the judge thought the viewers could figure out what Carlson meant by his statements and he found no fault with what Carlson said.
“Apparently, the judge thought the viewers could figure out what Carlson meant by his statements and he found no fault with what Carlson said.”
Tom are you serious? What the judge was saying was I’m not going to find him guilty because his show is light weight nonsense that no one in their right mind would find reasonable or accurate.
Don’t waste your time with Simon, he behaves like one of the AI bots we have been discussing of late. He is programmed to dismiss out-of-hand anything that contradicts “the Borg narrative.”
Simon set up a strawman that bears no resemblance to reality.
There is no such person as a climate skeptic.
They may be alarmist skeptics – people who question the alarmism.
They may be skeptics about humans causing the demise of humanity.
They may be skeptics about being able to engineer climate.
But they all believe in at least 30 climate zones and subzones.
They all believe that climate change has been observed over millennia.
They all believe people have the ability to adapt to a changing world.
They avoid irrelevant red herrings when discussing a topic.
Yawn…. You are trying to change the subject and I’m not going there.
You comments never go anywhere
You are the one TOTALLY INCAPABLE of countering a word said in Tuckers report.
You are the one using GROSS attempts at SLIMING as an argument.
And failing.. of course.
Can’t deal with REAL FACTS Simon
This is almost as funny as Simon whining about ad hominems.
If you’re “not going there”, then please provide some evidence that your comments are going anywhere.
Simon, Tucker Carlson and MIchael Crichton say to look at the data to see if the words of so many climate alarmists make sense. Your ad hominems are not data. So I suggest you look to the data of scientists such as Judith Curry (Georgia Tech), Richard Lindzen (MIT), Roy Spencer (University of Alabama), the late Freeman Dyson (Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton) and many many other major scientists say to do. So do that and then tell us of your conclusions. There are many sources of reliable data on climate for inquisitive armchair occupiers such as me. The best I know of is in climate4you.com where a climate scientist named Olie Humlum, a Norwegian I believe, presents in largely graphical form all sorts of data that can be used to answer many of the questions you may have. Is the globe warming for example? Dr. Humlum presents graphs of global temperature measurements from all major measurement groups, NOAA and NASA several others. Are the data “adjusted” to increase the alarm level? That’s there too. Is global humidity increasing as CO2 theory demands? The data is there and the answer is no. Are clouds increasing or decreasing? Is the Arctic warming or cooling? It’s warming. Is the Antarctic warming or cooling. Its cooling. How can that be if the effect of CO2 is to warm the globe? Is there a warming zone in the lower troposphere as CO2 theory demands? If you are concerned with rising seas, a British group maintains the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level which reports so-called tide gauge records going back as far as before Abraham Lincoln was President. Go to PSMSL.com for that. Don’t omit looking at the”other data” button which shows whether the land on which the gauges sit is rising or falling. Are storms increasing or decreasing in number or intensity? Ryan Maue maintains a good database on those questions. A recent report by William Happer (Princeton physics and William Wijngaarden (University of York, Ontario physics) shows the radiation physics of our atmosphere and the changes expected from a doubling of CO2 and other so-called greenhouse gasses. Hint: the changes are very small.
Look at the data Simon, and then tell us what your found.
Data is irrelevant to Simon, always.
Innuendo and sliming are his stock in trade
If Simon looked at the data, he would be a skeptic.
No, Simon, bogus Hockey Stick charts are not data.
Simon doesn’t think for himself, he just repeats the narrative.
Every piece of climate data he mentioned was CORRECT
We know who the LIARS are.. and YOU are one of them. !
Point out where he was incorrect in this report..
… or show just how IRRELEVANT your comment is.
So two ultra-leftist “fact-checkers” (LOL) don’t like what Tucker says..
SO WHAT !!
“is not ‘stating actual facts’”
Thing is.. if you even dared to look.. you would see that he DOES state the facts about basically everything in the report shown in this thread.
Your trouble is that you KNOW you are incapable of countering any of them.
So you bring out you sliming.. as usual.
peddling was complete nonsense and was to the detriment of democracy in the US. That is about as low as the media can get. Disgusting!!!!
Oh spare us the fake outrage the result of every election is questioned, CNN gave Clinton ample opportunities to cast doubt on the 2016 result, for instance for the subsequent four years CNN fed the Russia interference hoax incessantly.
“for instance for the subsequent four years CNN fed the Russia interference hoax incessantly.”
What planet are you on???? The Muller found the Russian government “interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion” I’d say “sweeping and systematic fashion” is conclusive wouldn’t you?
Here read for yourself….
You really are a gullible fool. !
You really are a prat aren’t you. I could quote any number of sites. In fact I was quoting Mueller(A republican) and backing it up with Wikipedia. The point is CH was wrong to say Russia didn’t interfere in the election. And for the record Wikipedia’s record is a whole lot better than Tucker Carson’s when it comes to being right/honest.
“Tucker Carson’s when it comes to being right”
Still waiting for you to counter one point made by Tucker in the report on this thread.
Seems he said nothing that wasn’t correct. !
You continue to FAIL.
The hoax was that there was collusion between Russia and Trump’s 2016 campaign to influence the 2016 election, the Mueller report found nothing.
But you didn’t say, that you said “Russian interference,” which there was mountains of evidence for.
Yeah my bad I should have specified Russia-Trump collusion hoax but my main point stands: CNN and MSNBC kept up a constant campaign to delegitimize the Trump presidency and your confected outrage above is ridiculous.
The only evidence for Russian interference ended up being a document written by Hillary’s lawyer.
The other hoax is that Russian influence was substantial. It was minimal, and had no discernable effect on the election one way or the other. It’s a farce created by the Democrats.
Russia helped Biden, that is for sure.
Certainly all the FAKE NEWS concocted by the Democrats about Russian collusion, FAKED Dossiers etc etc…, didn’t help Trump.
But you “believed” every bit of it.
Time to take a REALITY CHECK..
If you dare
“Mueller finds no collusion with Russia, leaves obstruction question open”
YOU are the one that is either malignantly uninformed.. or just gormless and disingenuously lying..
You are one upset little puppy aren’t you.
Notice how Simon reacts when others actually support their claims.
Poor Simon.. destroyed yet again..
You poor whinging, slimy little worm !
Wikipedia is your source Simon? Seriously?
Mr. Simon says Mueller found Russia “interfered … in a sweeping and systemic fashion” none of which involved Trump or his campaign at any level. You never mention the latter part, we don’t wonder why.
Leave out the good part.
You mean the Muller report that was based on a file later determined to have been written by Hillary’s lawyer?
You really are pathetic Simon.
If it fits the narrative, it must be true.
“The Muller found the Russian government “interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion” ”
That’s ridiculous. Mueller had to say something to justify his investigation.
The truth is Russian interference was very limited. Does anyone here remember being influenced by anything Russian?
The most the Russians did was run a warehouse full of trolls who spread disinformation and the Russians organized two political rallies, one for Trump and one for Hillary Clinton and they both took place on the same day.
Does anyone recall being trolled by a Russian about politics in the runup to the 2020 election? I don’t. Was anyone influenced to vote a certain way by a Russian troll? I don’t think so. Hell, you can’t find a Russian troll if you go looking for one.
And how much influence does a troll, Russian or otherwise, have on the people reading his bs? A troll is a troll and is usually dismissed as such by thinking people.
Mueller ought to go to jail for his involvement in the illegal attempt to railroad Donald Trump.
The federal government spent millions of dollars and years trying to get Trump and he came out of it pure as the driven snow. And Mueller and all the Deep State cronies knew it from the very beginning. All involved should go to jail for treason.
It’s not over yet. Round Two is coming up.
Very well said, Tom.
“Very well said, Tom.”
Except it is only opinion and sadly far from the truth. The Russians actively sought to influence that election, were they successful… well Trump snuck through by the skin of his teeth, so one would have to say if they had any success at all, they may well have tipped thing for him.
“The Russians actively sought to influence that election”
“Actively seekiing” and being effective are two different things.
The Russians had no effect on the election other than Hillary using them to try to smear Trump. Kind of like what you are doing now.
Dude, lighten up a bit. Carson’s schtick is a mix of hyperbole, exaggeration and satire mixed with a bit of actual facts. You should be able to tell because he laughs a lot. Taking everything someone say seriously is a hallmark of intolerance for other peoples opinions and stupidity.
“Dude, lighten up a bit. Carson’s schtick is a mix of hyperbole, exaggeration and satire mixed with a bit of actual facts.”
I think that’s accurate… others here think he is some sort of messiah who speaks only the truth.
Who, for instance?
Simon doesn’t deal with reality well. Like most socialists and psychopaths, Simon views the world in shades of black and white.
If you object to Simon’s characterization of Carlson, that means you are a Carlson acolyte.
As for me, I agree with most of what Tucker says, but disagree with just about everything he says about the Ukraine war.
“As for me, I agree with most of what Tucker says, but disagree with just about everything he says about the Ukraine war.”
I’m pleased to hear the last bit Tom. For some reason he seems to be a Putin fan on that one. He is often quoted on Russian propaganda which is stunning.
Tucker is apparently a pacifist when it comes to the Ukraine war. And there is a growing pacifist streak in the Republican Party, fueled mainly by Tucker Carlson take on the subject, imo.
Pacifists need to answer the question: If we allow Ukraine to be taken over by Putin, then where does Putin stop? Is he satisfied with Ukraine, or does his victory make him want more victories?
Where do Tucker Carlson and the other pacifists draw the line with Putin? If not Ukraine, then where?
Tucker did say a couple of days ago that it would be right to resist Putin if Putin attacked a NATO nation. So Tucker is not a complete pacifist, he is a selective pacifist.
Here’s a clue for the pacifists: Murderous dictators don’t voluntarily stop themselves from conquests. If they are winning, they will continue until they are no longer winning.
Ukraine would be a good place to stop Putin from winning.
Good points Tom I agree with all you have said.
So again, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING you can counter in the Tucker Report above
Why don’t you JUST ADMIT that is the case, and leave the headless chook routine at home !.
“…the media on the right stoop to…”
How unlike the media on the left, eh Simon?
I can’t think of any on the left who deal in such obvious nonsense as Tucker Carlson. That’s not to say there are not clowns on the left of course there are…. But some of the stuff he says is so obviously false (as the judge said) and only meant to entertain. It’s amazing and a black mark on the people who support him that any take him seriously.
“a judge said “The ‘general tenor’ of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not ‘stating actual facts’
that was the judges opinion, not a legal statement
“that was the judges opinion, not a legal statement”
But it’s why the judge let him off, which is hilarious really. Judge “I’m letting you go because you are a joke and can’t be taken seriously…. so your words can’t be slanderous… have a nice day.” And to make matters worse that was the line his lawyers took. Imagine how that went down… “Listen Tucker the whole world knows you are a moron who spouts nonsense, so why not use it to get you off this rap?”
Odd. He never mentioned Dominion voting machines.
What did he actually say in that clip that was not right on?
In the ‘War and Peace’ length complaint against Fox, Tucker Carlson is named for apparently allowing one of his show sponsors MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to ‘broadcast falsehoods’ about Dominion Voting Systems.

They’re absolutely devastating to the Dominion arguments – and they’re from Dominion executives. I think you also need to get your news from less biased sources.
Carlson’s response live on air on Nov 20th 2020 was clear and unequivocal. He did not support the Presidents position on the election or the blame on Dominion machines.
“less than honest broker of information”
I think that holds for all the media on all sides. Best to look at what’s being said from many perspectives and look at the real world in front of your face to draw conclusions.
Wow, and when you can get that many put downs for saying the truth, I think the same can be said for the average inhabitant of this forum.
And on the related stories bar is a picture of the cultish “science guy” himself. You know, he has a profile that resembles the folding can opener in one of those old USAF survival kits.
Don’t go disparaging those can openers.
“I have a P-38 and I know how to use it!”
I know how to use a P38, but our (British) “government” won’t let me have one!
I think you guys may be talking about two different things.
Those P-38 can openers work really good. I have a Boy Scout knife that has a blade that will accomplish the same thing. It comes in handy every once in a while.
One of these?
No, one of these: (for our international friends)
“As with some other military terms, e.g., “jeep”, the origin of the term is not known with certainty; the P-38 opener coincidentally shares a designation with the Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighter plane, which could allude to its fast performance.”
I found pictures of both while looking for the above picture. I thought the above was funnier.
I’ll grant you that! 🙂
Yeah that was my first thought too!
Carlson says that the climate crisis mania is a religion, not a matter of scientific interpretation. He’s not wrong about that. Then we have these bozos: https://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/minnesota-democrat-lawmakers-push-ban-gas-powered-lawn-mowers-chainsaws-curb-climate-pollution
Obviously, whoever thought up this disastrous idea has never owned or used a Battery powered lawnmower or chainsaw. They become useless for branches over 4 inches in diameter or lawns larger than one acre. The small ones are convenient for small jobs though. As far as reducing GHG, eliminating Gas powered Chainsaws is about as effective as releasing enough water to lower Lake Mead by one Micrometer to prevent failure of Hoover Dam. May sound like a massive, impressive, tremendous, amount of water though when converted to gallons.
When states do stupid things like this, this is when people go to more sane neighboring states and buy what they want to buy!
Or just give up and move to another state.
One of the candidates for the next mayor of Chicago is pushing the idea of higher taxes so that the Democrats can buy more votes invest in people. He swears that people won’t move out because of it.
Excellent takedown of the lie that is taking down only the West.
I went to church because it helped me be a better person. This includes the belief we are stewards of the environment.
I went to college to be a better engineer.
I ‘believe’ in gravity and ‘know’ how to look the gravitational constant.
If you tell me I am a bad person if I do not give enough money to the church, I am looking for another church.
POTUS Biden in the Fox News clip, told me that we (including his children) are going to be struck down by lighting and go to hell, literally if I do not give him more money.
It looks to me like POTUS Biden is spending the money on hookers.
To be honest, I think hookers would be a better use of the money than solar panels but nuke plant should be top the list.
Must it be either/or?
Hookers AND nukes?
nuclear powered hookers?
POTATUS Jumpin’ Joe Bidet
Show respect for the man in transition,
to a vegetable
The Trafficer-in-Chief, Joe Biden deserves condemnation not respect.
Of course, you knew that. I was just telling anyone that did not know. 🙂
Ahead of COP26:
Pope Francis, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the Archbishop of Canterbury join together for the first time in urgent appeal for the future of the planet
For the first time, the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Anglican Communion have jointly warned of the urgency of environmental sustainability, its impact on poverty, and the importance of global cooperation.
Pope Francis, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop Justin Welby urge everyone to play their part in ‘choosing life’ for the future of the planet.
All long forgotten.
And, as with virtually every other religion in the world, unscrupulous people attain positions of authority within the religion and use that authority to increase their own wealth, power and control.
It’s a story that’s been going on since the beginning of human history. The scary thing is that the mass of humanity is gullible enough to allow it to happen to them over and over and over and over again.
