Video: Tucker Carlson Reveals US Army PowerPoint Discussing Vaccine, Listing '7 Tenets of Satanism'

The U.S. military is under attack from an enemy that is as ruthless as it is persistent.

It’s not from foreign adversaries or terror groups this time — though our brave men and women in uniform are keeping us safe from them, too — but rather from leftists within the ranks intent on dismantling the armed forces from within.

This infiltration and undermining have been underway for some time, but COVID-19 has accelerated the process and focused the effort in a diabolical way — literally.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed in Monday’s program that a slide from an Army PowerPoint presentation obtained by the network contained a “sympathetic portrayal of Satanism.”

Carlson shared this information on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” as part of a broader commentary about the state of the U.S. military and the concerted efforts to demonize and demoralize armed forces personnel in a systematic way.

“In most places, at most times, if you wanted to take over a country, first you had to control its military — the ‘guys with guns,’ as Mark Milley once memorably put it,” Carlson said, taking a shot at the general and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who may have committed treason under former President Donald Trump.

“The Army is essential for political control,” Carlson continued. “Government dictates have no meaning without the credible threat of force to back them up. Guns are to laws what gold is to paper currency. It gives it value and strength,” he added.

“In a democratic system, the military serves and protects the entire population, no matter who they voted for,” Carlson said. “That’s what democracy is. In an authoritarian system, by contrast, the army is the enforcement apparatus of a specific political party.”

The host went on to cite historical examples of authoritarian regimes that imposed loyalty standards on the military to facilitate a takeover and related it to how that’s playing out in America right now.

First, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin promised to root out “white supremacy” and “extremism,” which translated mostly to harassing those who didn’t vote for President Joe Biden.

“Then, in August, Lloyd Austin came up with a new political purity test. This one was specifically designed to separate the obedient from the free — can’t have any of the latter category,” Carlson said.

“Austin said he planned to fire anyone in the entire armed services who would not submit to the COVID-19 vaccination shot. It didn’t matter whether they had natural immunity or not, as so many in the military do,” the host continued.

“Their personal moral or religious objections were totally irrelevant. The point was to bow before his authority and the authority of the Democratic Party. No excuses or exceptions,” Carlson later said, adding that Austin has no “scientific justification” for requiring the shot for our armed forces made up of young, healthy individuals and speculated at ulterior motives.

“The point of mandatory vaccination is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the free thinkers, the men with high testosterone levels, and anyone else who doesn’t love Joe Biden and make them leave immediately,” Carlson charged.

“It’s a takeover of the U.S. military,” he further asserted.

“Here’s they’re doing it: This show has just obtained a PowerPoint that the Army is using to justify mandatory vaccines to the troops,” Carlson explained with a graphic of the slide with the “7 Tenets of Satanism” the network claimed was Army-verified. (The Church of Satan later explained on Twitter that the seven tenets are not actually principles of Satanism but were instead “written a few years ago by a political activist group attempting to troll politicians.”)

“You will notice there the sympathetic portrayal of Satanism,” he said. “‘How many children were sacrificed to Satan because of the vaccine,’ the slide reads, apparently sarcastically,” Carlson continued.

“The presentation then proceeds to list the so-called ‘tenants of Satanism,’ which are taken straight from the Temple of Satanism website,” he pointed out.

“So here you have the U.S. Army doing PR for Satanism,” Carlson said.

It’s hard to dispute Carlson’s conclusions in light of these recent revelations and what’s already been happening in the military.

The focus on woke indoctrination and away from actual warfare is a well-established reality, as is the left’s utter hatred for a formidable military force.

Now with the COVID-19 vaccines that are morally repugnant to many devout Christians, those who wish to tear down America’s armed forces that are the envy of the world can now do so through several established avenues.

Biden has allowed transgender people in the military, going full force after years of leftists mostly flirting with such social engineering.

Then the witch hunt for white supremacists — meaning anyone who may have supported Trump — allowed for vetting based on political beliefs.

And now there is a vaccine mandate complete with the addition of Satanism into Army curriculum as a finishing touch to a yearslong campaign to destroy the military from the inside out.

All of these ideological assaults to undermine the military have been purposely aimed at the Americans who are most likely to be conservative, patriotic and protective of our Judeo-Christian beliefs and way of life.

They seek to drive away the strong, solid, liberty-minded men and women in order to leave the armed forces in the hands of the weak and woke, a cohort more malleable and easily turned against their fellow Americans.

It’s fitting then that the Army brass attempting to destroy the system from within would reference the supposed beliefs of Satanists — after all, they more closely mirror those ideals than the ones that built America.

Buttigieg Tells Americans to Get Used to ‘Disruptions,’ ‘Shocks to the System’

Western Journal

Published

on

Having less is just the way life goes in President Joe Biden’s America, according to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Buttigieg, who was on paternity leave for months as the supply chain crisis intensified, made the interview rounds this week and put a happy face on the crisis.

In comments Wednesday, he indicated Americans will need to get used to delays and potentially seeing empty shelves for the foreseeable future.

“There are going to be disruptions and shocks to the system as long as the pandemic continues,” he said, according to Reuters.

Rating firm Moody’s said Wednesday that the supply chain issues plaguing America will likely not subside any time soon, and shortages, higher transportation costs and higher prices will ripple through the economy.

But Buttigieg found a sunny side in all that when he popped in for a chat on “The View.”

Is the Biden administration totally incompetent?

“Americans have more money in their pockets compared to a year ago,” Buttigieg said, according to ABC News.

“Where they used to maybe spend it on going to shows or travel, they’ve been more likely to spend it on things, which is why actually we have a record number of goods coming through our ports.”

“Retail sales are through the roof, that’s part of why we have this challenge.”

Buttigieg also put in a brief plug for the infrastructure bill House Democrats have been holding hostage for weeks.

“There’s no easy fix. There’s no magic wand, but there are a lot of things we can do,” Buttigieg said. “We’re relying on infrastructure that was built decades ago, sometimes a century ago.”

His comments on “The View” echoed those made during his Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Certainly a lot of the challenges that we’ve been experiencing this year will continue into next year. But there are both short-term and long-term steps that we can take to do something about it,” Buttigieg told host Jake Tapper.

“Look, part of what’s happening isn’t just the supply side, it’s the demand side. Demand is off the charts. This is one more example of why we need to pass the infrastructure bill,” he continued.

“There are $17 billion in the President’s infrastructure plan for ports alone and we need to deal with these long-term issues that have made us vulnerable to these kinds of bottlenecks when there are demand fluctuations, shocks and disruptions like the ones that have been caused by the pandemic.”

Tucker Carlson Tonight” host Tucker Carlson said Tuesday that instead of leaders telling Americans they can fix the problems of the nation, the Biden administration is telling Americans to live with them.

Here’s how Carlson summed up the trend: “As your quality of life declines, you are instructed not to notice.”

Slamming an Op-Ed published by The Washington Post that scolded Americans for “[ranting] about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes,” Carlson made that into a symbol of what’s wrong with the nation.

“So if you don’t like the fact the shelves are bare in your local store, don’t throw a fit. Don’t be an entitled little tool. Lower your expectations. What did you expect in America? Come on. Bread lines, we’ve always had bread lines. It’s sort of charmingly retro, these bread lines. Don’t complain as your life becomes worse and as your country degrades,” he said.

“That’s the message, and not surprisingly, that message is coming directly from the people who are making your life worse and destroying the country. That would, of course, would be the White House.”

Biden Struggles to Speak, Gives Up and Says, ‘Uh, Um, What Am I Doing Here?’

Western Journal

Published

on

In 1992, during the most improbably successful third-party run at the presidency in modern American political history, billionaire businessman Ross Perot selected retired Navy Vice Adm. James Stockdale as his running mate.

Stockdale was a relative unknown in the rarefied air of presidential politics, but his resumé as a leader was impeccable. As the Department of Defense’s website notes, he was “the only three-star admiral to have worn both aviator wings and the Medal of Honor.”

A prisoner of war in Vietnam, he spent almost eight years in the Hanoi Hilton. He was president of the Naval War College until his retirement from the service in 1979, by which point he had earned two Distinguished Flying Crosses, three Distinguished Service Medals, four Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts.

Perot was the last third-party candidate to meet the 15 percent threshold set by the Commission on Presidential Debates to appear on stage against the Republican and Democratic candidates — meaning Stockdale also appeared in the vice presidential debate.

Attempting to address his relative anonymity straight off, Stockdale quipped, “Who am I? Why am I here?”

America didn’t get the joke. It became Stockdale’s epitaph; nothing he did before or after would much stick in our cultural consciousness. Thanks in no small part to the media’s ill-concealed joy in reporting Stockdale’s failed attempt at humor, we all remember one of our great war heroes as a man who found his way onto a vice presidential debate stage by accident, as if he’d sleepwalked there in his bathrobe and slippers.

Twenty-nine years and eight days after James Stockdale said those words in jest, the president of these United States stood on a stage and asked — in all seriousness — “What am I doing here?” And the media didn’t bat an eye.

On Thursday, President Joe Biden was in Baltimore for another interminable softball CNN town hall. For the most part, this might as well have been a campaign rally to sell his agenda and his image.

For instance, did you know Biden once raced Corvettes with the recently deceased Colin Powell? If you watched, you did.

“He and I went out [to] the Secret Service racetrack. He had a brand new Corvette, his family bought him, his kids bought him, and I have a ’67 327 350, and we raced. We raced. And, you know, the only reason — no, I’m serious. It was on Jay Leno. Check it out. Jay Leno. He is a hell of a guy,” Biden said, according to a CNN transcript.

Wonderful.

The “news” that came out of the town hall, at least to the media, is that Biden said “we’re going to have to move to the point where we fundamentally alter the filibuster.”

The takeaway was supposed to be that Uncle Joe was angry at those do-nothing Republicans opposing his agenda and was about to unleash the dogs of hell upon them.

The problem with this bombshell was that a) Biden has said this before, with the president taking serious jabs at the institution of the filibuster since at least March and b) the president can’t change the filibuster and hasn’t persuaded the holdout Democrats in the Senate who have refused to alter it, specifically Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.

If you’d like some news from Thursday’s town hall, however, perhaps Biden’s James Stockdale moment would suffice.

In one of the rare uncomfortable moments of the night — one where Biden wasn’t railing against perfidious Republicans who won’t let Democrats charge a few trillion dollars of “free stuff” on the credit card of America’s youth, or where he wasn’t recalling how he went zoom-zoom in fast cars with Colin Powell — he was asked about the supply chain crisis.

Anna Hirsch, a Loyola University student, said that “growing up in a small town, I’ve been surrounded by small business owners including my mom, who owns her own interior design business. With the current supply chain crisis, small businesses are in jeopardy of not being able to get products that they need because priority is given to large businesses. Does your administration have any policies or plans in place to aid the current supply chain problem and/or to help small businesses that are affected by this?”

Of course he had plans for both of these things, but he acknowledged “we have a significant supply chain problem,” which he blamed on just-in-time inventory management, a business practice that ensures materials and goods are shipped and received as closely as possible to when they’re being produced or sold, thus reducing inventory and increasing profit.

“Now that’s a big problem. You can’t — people can’t do it. They want to get out ahead,” Biden said, according to the transcript.

“What I’ve recently done, and people said — or doubted we could get it done, I was able to go to the private portion — 40 percent of all products coming into the United States of America on the West Coast go through Los Angeles and –”

Then Biden paused, said, “Uh, um,” and asked, “What am I doing here?”

“Is it Long Beach?” host Anderson Cooper asked.

“Long Beach. Thank you,” Biden said.

Now, the supply chain crisis has ensured the average news-consuming American hears the city of Long Beach name-checked almost as often as on a Snoop Dogg album. The man who has the most power to solve the supply chain crisis, meanwhile, is on stage trying to remember its name — then asks, “What am I doing here?”

Is Joe Biden in cognitive decline?

I can’t answer that question, either, but I don’t think that’s why Biden was asking it.

Thankfully for the president, our moderator decided to intervene and save Biden’s hide. I’m sure Cooper would have done just the same thing for former President Donald Trump — right, America?

This isn’t nitpicking. Yes, Joe Biden has never been fleet of foot verbally. Since the beginning of his campaign, however, Biden’s stumbles have become increasingly common and increasingly worrying. We can’t just laugh them off anymore. This is our president’s month of October:

And the month isn’t even over yet.

These days, it feels as if Joe Biden is averaging at least one James Stockdale per speech. We’ve stopped paying attention, though, even though Biden is the most powerful man in the free world.

When the name of the key port in the supply chain crisis eludes him, he just stands there and sullenly asks, “What am I doing here?”

Good question. Too bad nobody in the media wants to follow up on it.
