Tucker Carlson Goes On Record to EVISCERATE Trump In Shock Interview

Did you see this coming? Wow!

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is generally a big supporter of President Trump.

That’s why this is so odd.

See what Tucker says about Trump and keeping promises…

In an interview on Tuesday with Die Weltwoche, a Swiss weekly magazine, Carlson told Urs Gehriger at his Fox News office in Washington, D.C. that Trump has not kept his promises and has not achieved his goals.

Carlson: “His chief promises were that he would build the wall, de-fund planned parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things. I don’t think he’s capable. I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus. I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him.

I think Trump’s role is to begin the conversation about what actually matters. We were not having any conversation about immigration before Trump arrived in Washington. People were bothered about it in different places in the country. It’s a huge country, but that was not a staple of political debate at all. Trump asked basic questions like’ ‘Why don’t our borders work?’ ‘Why should we sign a trade agreement and let the other side cheat?’ Or my favorite of all, ‘What’s the point of NATO?’ The point of NATO was to keep the Soviets from invading western Europe but they haven’t existed in 27 years, so what is the point? These are obvious questions that no one could answer.

Tucker was asked if Trump has accomplished anything.

Not much. Not much. Much less than he should have. I’ve come to believe he’s not capable of it.

The reason Trump hasn’t accomplished much, in Tucker’s view, is because “the legislative process in this country by design is highly complex, and it’s designed to be complex as a way of diffusing power, of course, because the people who framed our Constitution, founded our country, were worried about concentrations of power.

They balanced it among the three branches as you know and they made it very hard to make legislation. In order to do it you really have to understand how it works and you have to be very focused on getting it done, and he knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do so. It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things. I’m not in charge of Trump.

Tucker then seemed to be critical of capitalism:

Capitalism drives change, innovation change, the old ways give way to new ways of doing things, and in the process of change the weak get hurt always. This was true in industrialization 100 years ago and it’s true in the digital revolution now. What’s changed is that nobody is standing up on behalf of the people who are being crushed by the change.

Tucker also added that socialism is “absolutely” in America’s future.

Is he wrong about any of this?

Let’s see…

On socialism, it’s clear.

He’s right.

One day, whether it’s five years or twenty years down the line, socialism is coming to America with full force. There will be too many Ocasio-Cortez’s in Congress and state government to stop it.

Sad but true.

Tucker’s words about Trump aren’t necessarily wrong, but certainly surprising.

Trump has definitely accomplished a lot, despite not keeping his core promises.

But that’s Washington.

Save conservative media!

Bill Barr Goes On Record, Says Dems ‘Engaged In A War’ to Systemically Sabotage Trump Admin

Is he wrong? Or is he 100% correct?

If you think Attorney General Bill Barr is wrong or off-base or is just talking to hear his own voice, you’re not paying attention. Thankfully, you’re a conservative and you’re in the know. At a recent event, Barr proclaimed what all Republicans have been thinking from day one. The left is determined to bring down President Trump and every member of his administration by any means necessary. Barr, like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and many others close to POTUS, aren’t afraid to say what they are thinking. Barr didn’t hold back. Here’s the scoop, via Daily Wire: Attorney General William Barr went off on the so called “resistance” during a Friday speech at the Federalist Society’s 2019 National Lawyers Convention in Washington, D.C., warning that the political Left is “engaged in a war” to “cripple” and “sabotage” the Trump administration from being able to function. Barr noted, “Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘The Resistance,’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration. Now, ‘resistance’ is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous – indeed incendiary – notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic. What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the ‘loyal opposition,’ as opposing parties have done in the past, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.” WATCH: AG Bill Barr on the Democrats: “they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool & maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of [the Trump admin]… they essentially see themselves as…

Kaepernick Changes NFL Workout At Last Minute, League Says He Pulled A Fast One (Details)

This went exactly as Kaepernick planned…

Jay-Z reportedly helped Colin Kaepernick secure a workout for NFL teams as a way to make amends with his liberal fanbase after working on a project with Commissioner Roger Goodell. They thought he sold out. 24 of the NFL’s 32 teams were set to show up to the private workout in Atlanta. There wasn’t supposed to be any media in attendance. At the last minute, seemingly out of the blue, Colin and his camp decided to change the location so there would be media. You know, for transparency sake. Now, Colin is getting called out for turning the event in a sideshow. Here’s what’s up, via Washington Post: Representatives for quarterback Colin Kaepernick moved and rescheduled his workout for NFL teams Saturday after disagreements persisted with the league over the details of his audition. The session, as planned by the NFL, was originally scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Atlanta Falcons’ training complex in Flowery Branch, Ga. After continued haggling with the league over the conditions for the workout, Kaepernick’s representatives announced it would be moved to 4 p.m. at another Atlanta-area venue. They wanted the session open to the media, which the NFL refused, and objected to the version of a liability waiver that the league wanted Kaepernick to sign, Kaepernick’s representatives said.
