Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson is the most popular host on television.
One of the reasons for Carlson’s popularity is his willingness to speak the truth.
And Tucker Carlson just took the gloves off on one GOP Senator for pushing this foolish policy.
Tucker Carlson has been sounding the alarm over the Biden administration and foreign policy hawks starting World War III with Russia over Ukraine.
Even though Ukraine presents no national security interest for the U.S., the foreign policy establishment in Washington, D.C. is still beating the drums for a full-scale conflict with Russia.
During a recent episode of his show on Fox News Channel, Tucker Carlson played a clip of Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst advocating war with Russia.
Senator Ernst is one of many Senators who are demanding new sanctions on Russia to try to stop Putin from invading Ukraine.
“So we do need to go ahead and impose sanctions on Russia now,” Ernst stated. “We need to show them that we mean business, and we will be there for Ukraine should they invade . . . Certainly we need to make sure that any defensive aid is in the hands of the Ukrainians as well as as much lethal aid as we can provide at this time.”
Carlson ridiculed these comments as Ernst doing nothing more than reading a script.
“Those are our leaders. Totally ignorant, just reading the script. It’d be nice to hear someone in the press corps – because it’s their job – ask the obvious follow-up, which would be, why exactly, Senator Ernst, do you believe it is so vital to send more lethal aid to Ukraine into and to quote, ‘Go ahead and impose more sanctions on Russia?’”
According to Carlson, the Communist Chinese are the true global threat to the United States.
And he believes sanctioning Russia and strengthening their alliance with China could bring about devastating economic consequences for the United States.
That’s because Carlson said that China and Russia could convince other countries to dump the dollar as their reserve currency, which would lead to a massive economic crash in America.
But Senator Ernst and other Big Government elites never address these concerns when pushing for a war with Russia.
To them, a war between two nuclear armed superpowers is not that big of a deal.
But Tucker Carlson took them to task by explaining how foolish and deadly a war with Russia could be for not just Americans but millions of people worldwide.
