Tucker Carlson Brags About Fox News Refusing To Air Democrats’ January 6 ‘Deranged Lecture’ Live

Fox News host Tucker Carlson, as all other major media networks were airing the first televised hearing of the House select committee investigating January 6, bragged that his network wasn’t engaging in the propaganda.

And if you ask me, he’s right to do so.

Carlson pointed out that it says quite a bit about the “ruling class” that with every major crisis currently ongoing in this nation “the rest of us are getting yet another lecture about January 6th tonight.”

“From our moral inferiors, no less,” he added.

Carlson argued that by comparison to such violent outbreaks as the BLM riots in the summer of 2020, the Capitol riot was “a forgettably minor outbreak.”

You can bet there are plenty of people who will have heart palpitations over that description of the riot.

Fox News Doesn’t Air January 6 Hearing

Tucker Carlson explained, rather succinctly mind you, why Fox News wasn’t airing the January 6 hearing live while others were breathlessly sharing it with their viewers.

“This is the only hour on an American news channel that won’t be covering their propaganda live,” Carlson said of the House select committee. “They are lying and we are not going to help them do it.”

Personalities at the other networks had spent time leading up to last night’s hearing criticizing Fox for not carrying the hearing live.

The other networks and their reporters, of course, don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to refusing to air ‘newsworthy’ events.

Major media outlets repeatedly refused to air events in which former President Trump asked for air time – briefings on the border wall, and other official addresses for example.

The Big Issues

Carlson noted that gas prices have doubled since the January 6 riot, drug overdoses in America have skyrocketed, the economy is careening off the tracks, and our nation is in a new Cold War with the potential for escalation.

All seemingly more newsworthy or hearing-worthy crises, in my view.

“Yet the other networks can’t be bothered to cover any of that tonight,” Carlson said. “Instead, they’ve interrupted their regularly scheduled programming to bring you yet another extended primetime harangue from Nancy Pelosi and Liz Cheney about Donald Trump and QAnon.”

“The whole thing is insulting,” he added. “In fact, it’s deranged and we’re not playing along.”

Listen to Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the chairman of the select committee, give the game away in comments to the media prior to the hearing.

“We want to paint a picture as clear as possible as to what occurred,” Thompson told reporters. “The public needs to know what to think.”

Telling people what to think is, exactly as Tucker Carlson described, propaganda.

Rather than engaging in the public lecture from Congress directed at Trump supporters, Carlson laid out some facts you weren’t going to hear on the primetime, made-for-TV special.

The Fox News host pointed out that the “only person who wound up shot to death” that day was unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt.

He went on to point out that the media and Democrats have consistently spread misinformation about the deaths that were supposedly caused by the January 6 riot.

Just this week, CBS News reporter Robert Costa told his audience that the House select committee hearing “will take Americans back to January 6, when an estimated 2,000 rioters breached the Capitol building, causing the deaths of five police officers.”

“In fact, precisely zero police officers were killed by rioters on January 6, not five, none,” Carlson corrected. “Not a single one.”

The five officers referenced by Costa protected the Capitol during their service, but none were killed on January 6th.

The Fox News host also pointed out that the committee isn’t going to tell the American people “how many FBI agents and assets were in the crowd that day and what were they doing there.”

You may recall that the FBI was heavily involved in the case involving an alleged plot to kidnap Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

That case fell apart in April when two defendants were found not guilty, while charges against two others ended in a mistrial.

The New York Times described the results of the Whitmer kidnap case as “a major blow to the Justice Department, which during the Biden administration has made domestic terrorism one of its top priorities in the aftermath of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.”

Why did the case fall apart? According to the Times, lawyers for the defendants had successfully argued the “supposed plot” had been “conceived and nudged ahead by a network of FBI agents and informants.”

The Hill published a list of the “five most dramatic moments from the Jan. 6 hearing” following the charade. Topping that list were “Liz Cheney’s remarks.”

Liz. Cheney’s. Rem … zzzzz.

Oh, excuse me, I fell asleep for a brief moment.

Cheney’s remarks were nothing more than the same anti-Trump diatribe that has been spilling out of her mouth for months on end.

“Those who invaded our Capitol and battled law enforcement for hours were motivated by what President Trump had told them: that the election was stolen and that he was the rightful president,” she said.

Trump, claimed Cheney, had “summoned the mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack.”

That was the most dramatic moment of last night’s hearing? Canned accusations that she and committee members have been making since January 7th, 2020?

Last night was their big reveal and they fell flat on their faces.

The Red Wave is coming, Liz, Bennie, Adam … and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.

This Innocent Woman's House Was Destroyed by a SWAT Team. A Jury Says She's Owed $60,000.

#Innocent #Woman039s #House #Destroyed #SWAT #Team #Jury #She039s #Owed

When Vicki Baker cleared out her home in McKinney, Texas, in 2020, she filled two 40-foot dumpsters with her belongings. It wasn’t the way she’d pictured emptying the house as she prepared to begin retirement in Montana. But there was little else to be done with her tear-gas stained items after a SWAT team careened through her fence, detonated explosives to blow her garage door off its hinges, smashed several windows, and drove a BearCat armored vehicle through her front door to apprehend a fugitive that had barricaded himself inside.

A federal jury last week decided that Baker is entitled to $59,656.59 for the trouble. It’s both a controversial and surprising decision. Normally, people like Baker get nothing.

In July 2020, Wesley Little arrived at Baker’s house with a 15-year-old girl he’d kidnapped. Little had previously worked for Baker as a handyman, though she had fired him about a year and a half earlier after her daughter, Deanna Cook, expressed that something may be awry. Cook answered Little at the door that day; having seen him on recent news reports, she left the premises and called the police.

The girl was released unharmed. But Little refused to exit the home, so a SWAT team arrived and began to tear the house down around him in a process known as “shock and awe.”

They then kindly left Baker with the bill. “I’ve lost everything,” she told me in March 2021. “I’ve lost my chance to sell my house. I’ve lost my chance to retire without fear of how I’m going to make my regular bills.” Those bills include treatment for stage 3 breast cancer.

Yet the only thing perhaps more absurd than a jury having to force the government’s hand in recompensing her is that Baker almost did not have the privilege to bring her case before one. Federal courts in similar cases have ruled that the government can usurp “police powers” to destroy your property and avoid having to pay it back under the Takings Clause of the 5th Amendment, which is supposed to provide a remedy for such circumstances.

After the ordeal, Baker sought that remedy through her home insurance, which stipulated that they are not on the hook if it is the government’s fault. And though the government didn’t deny being at fault, per se, they did deny that Baker was a victim, sending her on her way with a ravaged home, thousands of dollars in destroyed personal possessions, and a dog that went deaf and blind from the chaos that July day.

In November of last year, Baker’s luck began to turn. A federal judge denied the city of McKinney’s motion to dismiss her case. In April, that same jurist, Judge Amos L. Mazzant III of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, described the interpretation of the law barring Baker from suing as “untenable.” And last week, the jury handed down their ruling. The city may appeal, which will delay any payout.

In coming to his decision, Mazzant invoked another unfortunate case: that of the Lech family, who had their $580,000 home ruined by a SWAT team as they pursued an unrelated shoplifter who broke in. Greenwood Village, Colorado, did more for them than McKinney would do for Baker, forking over all of $5,000. A federal court ruled that the family could not sue, and the Supreme Court declined to take up the case.

“Even though a number of federal courts have gone the wrong way on this issue, they’ve done so with very cursory analysis,” says Jeffrey Redfern, an attorney at the Institute for Justice, the public interest law firm shepherding Baker’s case. He says this new ruling is different and should “be the one that everyone is looking at” as similar situations continue to pop up.

It does not set a precedent, however. “In this case, we put the city claims agent on the stand,” notes Redfern, “and she said, ‘Yep, I denied the claim, and I deny every claim like this, and if this happened tomorrow I would deny it again.’” Unfortunately for people like Vicki Baker, this will continue to be a familiar story.

1/6 Committee Hits Spiraling Trump Again By Subpoenaing Pat Cipollone

#Committee #Hits #Spiraling #Trump #Subpoenaing #Pat #Cipollone

The 1/6 Committee has subpoenaed one of the people who knows the intimate details of Trump’s coup plot, former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone.

The AP reported:

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection issued a subpoena Wednesday to former White House counsel Pat Cipollone, who has been linked to meetings in which lawyers debated strategies to overturn former President Donald Trump’s election loss.

The Committee said that it required Cipollone’s testimony after obtaining other evidence about which he was “uniquely positioned to testify.”

Pat Cipollone Can Testify To The Plot To Overturn The Election

According to Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony, Cipollone has intimate and wide-ranging details about the plot to overturn the election. Hutchinson testified that Cipollone warned that if Trump went to the Capitol, they would be charged with every crime imaginable.

Trump was already falling apart after Hutchinson’s testimony, and he could be in for a double whammy if his former White House Counsel testifies. The White House Counsel is not a personal lawyer to the president but represents the institutional interests of the Executive Branch.

If Cipollone testifies, it will be the bombshell that will level the rubble that was already smoldering after Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony.
