Tucker Carlson for President!?

via RT

A political action campaign calling itself Draft Tucker PAC released a campaign ad on Thursday urging the Republican Party to pick former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson as its candidate for President of the US in 2024.

“Republicans need a new leader, and Tucker Carlson is ready to lead,” the 30-second spot boasts, describing the conservative pundit as “witty, sharp and [someone who] mocks woke nonsense.” Carlson “will whip Biden in a debate,” the commercial assures voters, insisting “no one in America is more articulate.”

Led by former Texas congressional candidate and Republican donor Chris Ekstrom, the Draft Tucker PAC, which filed its papers last month after Carlson was let go from Fox News, still has to convince its eponymous candidate to run. The ad urges viewers to sign its petition to draft the right-wing commentator.

Ekstrom told The Hill he was concerned neither the Republican frontrunner, former president Donald Trump, nor Trump’s leading challenger, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, is pushing the conversation in the right direction. “I’m very concerned that they’re going to not move the debate as far right as it ought to be,” he told the outlet, without explaining where the declared candidates fell short in their positions on the issues.

Describing the PAC as “exceptionally well-funded,” Ekstrom explained it will sponsor polls and release more ads on radio and digital as well as TV, while populating its board with “major conservatives.” He claimed Carlson had been “testing the water for quite a while” regarding the appetite for a presidential candidacy.

Earlier this month, Carlson joked about running for president in text messages with a reporter, something he has done several times before. However, he has dismissed the idea when asked about it seriously, telling former New York Times journalist Ben Smith last year that he was content working as a “talk show host” and had no desire for power.

While the media establishment have made clear they believe a Carlson candidacy would fail, they also won’t stop talking about it, with some half-dozen articles emerging since the journalist left Fox discussing his chances at the White House.

Carlson’s primetime news show far outstripped its competitors in ratings, bringing in over 3 million viewers nightly. The video he released on Twitter following his departure has pulled in over 84 million views. Earlier this month, he announced plans to launch a news show on the platform.

Tucker Carlson – A Man Standing Up

Both Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy shortly before firing Fox News‘ anti-war host Tucker Carlson, who has repeatedly asked why the United States is sending vast resources to one of the most historically corrupt nations on the planet while neglecting its own citizens.

“Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch held a previously unreported call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy this spring in which the two discussed the war and the anniversary of the deaths of Fox News journalists last March,” according to Semafor, adding “The Ukrainian president had a similar conversation with Lachlan Murdoch on March 15, which Zelenskyy noted in a little-noticed aside during a national broadcast last month.”

As Semafor further notes; “The conversations came weeks before the Murdochs fired their biggest star and most outspoken critic of American support for Ukraine, Tucker Carlson. Senior Ukrainian officials had made their objections to Carlson’s coverage known to Fox executives, but Zelenskyy did not raise it on the calls with the Murdochs, according to one person familiar with the details of the calls.”
Weeks later, Lachlan Murdoch was credited with the decision to let Carlson go, according to the NY Times.

The decision to let Mr. Carlson go was made on Friday night by Lachlan Murdoch, the chief executive of Fox Corporation, and Suzanne Scott, chief executive of Fox News Media, according to a person briefed on the move. Mr. Carlson was informed on Monday morning by Ms. Scott, another person briefed on the move said.

Carlson, according to the report, has previously described Zelenskyy as a “dictator.”
Interestingly, on March 11 – right around the time of the Lachlan Murdoch call, Carlson suggested to Redactedhost Clayton Morris that he could be fired over his anti-war stance.
“I’m saying what I really think and I think it really really matters and if I get fired for it, I don’t know what to say, I’m not going to change,” he said, adding that one of the top people he worked for at the network texted him to say “For the record, I really disagree with you on Ukraine!”
To which Carlson said: “And I wrote back and said, ‘I know you do and I’m so grateful that you let me disagree with you in public,” adding “This is someone I work for — a well known person.”
“Whatever you think of Fox … they are allowing me to say things that they disagree with and I think that’s wonderful.”

What’s Going on in Sudan?

The battle in Sudan is between these two men, the 65-year-old Al-Barhan, the coup master who overthrew Omar al-Bashir with a military coup and has been the unofficial but undisputed ruler of Sudan for almost 4 years, and the 46-year-old Mohammad Hamdan Daglu, nicknamed Hamidti, the commander of the The quick reaction and the former deputy of the Transitional Council of Sudan, who considered the coup in Sudan wrong not long ago and is against the normalization of relations with Israel.

Al-Burhan, Head of Sudan’s Transitional Governance Council: The situation is under control, the rapid response military should not be a tool of personal ambitions.

Commander Hamidati: The situation in some parts of the capital is under our control and we will not rest until al-Barhan is brought to justice.

Zambian Opposition Leader Fred M’membe on Kamala Harris’s Visit to the Country Today

A country that has overthrown so many governments in Africa and has led so many coups in Africa and other parts of the world . The country that has killed so many of our leaders in Africa and other parts of the world The assassins of Patrice Lumumba, the assassins of Kwame Nkrumah, the assassins of Nasser, and the assassins of Muammar Gaddafi will come today to teach us about democracy. A country that was built on brute force, on the enslavement of other human beings, on the humiliation of Africans, and on the exploitation of Africans will come today to teach us democracy. If you have no respect for the dignity of others, if you do not respect the sovereignty of other countries, you cannot claim to be the “champion of democracy.”

Ex-Russian President, No Peace Before NATO Rolls-Back to Before 1997

In a lengthy article in the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper, f
ormer Russian president Dmitry Medvedev summarized his thoughts on how the year 2022 has changed the world order forever. Dmitri Medvedev long end-of-year article, all in Russian, “‘Our people, our land, our truth’: Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev – on the results of 2022, which changed the world order”. “I will express my own position on current events. I do not pretend to be impartially detached, since I am a direct participant in them. Yes, it is impossible when it comes to the fate of your Motherland, our people and the whole world.”

He has accused Western powers of lying, causing a rift that will remain for decades to come, and convincing Moscow that there is no sense in trying to reach an agreement with them.
Medevedev, who serves as deputy chair of the national Security Council, wrote in a keynote article on Sunday that the year 2022 has shattered illusions about the West, proving that its promises and principles cannot taken at face value.

“Alas, there is nobody in the West we could deal with about anything for any reason,” he wrote.

Medvedev went on to say that nations that claim global leadership deceived Russia when they claimed NATO expansion in Europe posed no threat to it. They again lied when they backed a peace roadmap for Ukraine, which in reality was meant to give Kiev time to prepare for an eventual armed conflict with Russia, he added. The conflict in Ukraine is a war against Russia by a proxy, which was long in the making, Medvedev claimed.
The behavior of Washington and others this year “is the last warning to all nations: there can be no business with the Anglo-Saxon world [because] it is a thief, a swindler, a cardsharp (n.ed. trickster) that could do anything.”
For Russia, there will be no restoration of normal relations with the West for years or even decades to come, Medvedev predicted.

“From now on we will do without them until a new generation of sensible politicians comes to power there. We will be careful and alert. We will develop relations with the rest of the world,” he wrote.

However, Medvedev argued that the loss of Western leadership could be a net positive, considering what he called the moral bankruptcy of the US-led neo-colonial order. Elites that caused the financial meltdown of 2008 and the ongoing global crisis are unable to claim global leadership, he wrote.
“The West is incapable of offering to the world any new ideas, which would take humanity forward, solve global problems, or provide collective security,” the former president insisted.
Medvedev expects that several regional blocs will emerge in the near future, each with its own values and rules, and that Russia will have its place in the new order.

“The only thing that stops our enemies today is the understanding that Russia will be guided by [the doctrine] on nuclear deterrence. And if there is a real threat, we will act,”Medvedev wrote in the article published on Sunday night. In such a grim scenario there will be nobody left to argue about whether that was “a retaliatory strike or a preventive one.”
“Therefore, the Western world is balancing between a burning desire to maximally humiliate, dismember and destroy Russia, on the one hand, and the desire to avoid a nuclear apocalypse, on the other,” he explained.

Until Russia receives the security guarantees it has demanded, the world “will continue to teeter on the brink of World War III and nuclear catastrophe,” Medvedev wrote, noting that Moscow is doing “everything we can to prevent it.”

Is the West ready, through Kiev proxies, to unleash a full-fledged war against us, including a nuclear war?

Russia presented a list of security proposals to the US and NATO last December, including urging the West to impose a ban on Ukraine entering the military bloc, while insisting that NATO should retreat to its borders of 1997.
After the US and NATO flatly refused, saying they would only be interested in limited strategic arms control talks, it became obvious that Moscow had “no one to talk and nothing to negotiate about” Medvedev argued.
And when in February “Ukrainian junkies announced their desire to revive their nuclear arsenal,” Moscow had no other choice but to act, he claimed.

“Our world has changed, forever. And the main question remains… what kind of future begins today?” he wrote.

“New disarmament agreements are currently unrealistic and unnecessary,” Medvedev reiterated. “The sooner the guarantees of maximum security that suit our country are received, the sooner the situation will normalize.”

Fomenting of a Color Revolution in China?

Meanwhile, at the other end of the universe, in China, strange things are taking place. People are out on the streets in anti-government mass demonstrations. These are not sanctioned by the Corona Committee, i.e. CC of CCP for sure.

 Actually, protesters chant ‘Step down CCP’ in Shanghai against China’s zero-Covid policy

Those gathered in Urumqi Street demanded the resignation of Xi Jinping, the removal of the Chinese Communist Party from power, the lifting of COVID restrictions, and an investigation into the Urumqi tragedy, in which 10 people were killed in a fire in an enclosed house (many believe the tragedy was caused by COVID restrictions, which prohibited people from leaving the house).

Protesters chanted:  “Down with the Communist Party! Xi Jinping to resign! “Freedom for all of China!”.

Are we finally going to see a reversal of the Xi government pursuit of a strict zero-Covid policy since the coronavirus first emerged in Wuhan in late 2019, with strict measures like daily testing and lockdowns? Despite these policies, China recorded its highest ever number of daily Covid-19 infections on Wednesday, registering 31,444 new cases.

Ironically, Klaus Schwab just praised the Chinese system in an interview on Chinese TV as the model system for the West.

Go figure.

Demonstration in Ulm (Baden Wuerttemberg)

Demonstration in Ulm (Baden Wuerttemberg) – with telling plakards (too many to translate – but good to decifer for those readers who learned a bit German); on Nov.11, 2022; is seems that the West German populus finally is waking up and begins to demonstrate in the thousands. Something that the German government is afraid of and has tried to make it illegal, or at least present it as a extreme right demagoegery.
