They Couldn’t Cuck the Tuck

  1. So they finally got rid of him.

Make no mistake, this has been a long time coming.  Tucker ruffled more than a few RINO feathers over at FOX, the so-called  conservative news network.  Once Paul “Mr Cuckservative” Ryan got on the board of directors, it was only a matter of time.

The list of his heresies is a long one and the bigwigs were always looking for an excuse to dump him overboard.  I knew his time was up when he started questioning NATO’s rationale for supporting the Kiev regime.  Heck, he even said positive things about Russia, calling it a “white, Christian country” and so on.  And then he said the quiet part out loud:  JFK was murdered by his own government.  Honestly, I’m surprised they let him stay on as long as he did.  I imagine his ratings –which were tremendous–were the only thing staying their hand.  But neocons being neocons, there was only so much truth they could take.  And so the axe finally came down.

But I believe it was his recent address at the Heritage Foundation that finally did him in (video below).  Tucker correctly identifies the culprit behind the present secular miasma:  it’s a spiritual crisis, not a political one.  If I didn’t known any better I’d say he’s dusted off his Dostoevsky; he actually sounds like an Orthodox Elder.  (FYI:  Tucker graduated in Russian studies back in college.)

The nonsense about the Dominion lawsuit hardly qualifies as a pretext to get rid of Carlson.  He wasn’t even named in the lawsuit.  (Sure, he trash-talked his bosses in his personal emails, but who doesn’t?)  Rupert Murdock coughed up $787 million to make its lawsuit against FOX go away.  That was 20 percent of his net worth.  Upon news that Tucker Carlson Tonight was going to be cancelled, FOX’s stock immediately started tanking.  I’m sure that its ratings in general will as well.  Tucker had the highest-rated show on cable TV, so we can expect a death-spiral at this point.  There’s no way he’s going to be able to recuperate that money, no matter how many pretty faces wearing tight dresses they replace him with.  In other words, FOX is going to lose even more money.  

Good.  It’ll serve them right.

So why’d Murdock do it?  This is like the ’27 Yankees firing Babe Ruth because of his table manners (got that one from Judge Napolitano).  I suppose it’s because Murdock is part of the Establishment and they’re scared of the rising populism that’s overtaking the nation.  

Parenthetically, I couldn’t help but agree with this recent twitter I received:  “The one FOX News host who reported that the CIA killed JFK, the US blew up the NordStream pipeline and Joe Biden showered with his own daughter is out ONE DAY before Biden announces his candidacy for re-election.”  Coincidence?  I think not.

One thing for sure, we haven’t heard the last of Tucker.  It might be a good time for Tucker, Dan Bongino, Steve Bannon and a few other America-firsters to start a new cable network.  How’s this for a name:  “America-First News Network”?  Tucker, here’s a free piece of advice:  I wouldn’t go with Newsmax or One America News; they’re just as much controlled neocon opposition as FOX ever was, only without all the glitz and glamour.  

Here it his speech at Heritage in all it’s unadulterated glory:


  1. Yeah, it could have also been his interview with RFK, Jr. That’s what the boys at the Duran think. Hard to say.

    Personally, I have to like Tucker for his chutzpah but I don’t believe that one lone voice in the wilderness was that influential. And, frankly, it’s better to be able to completely dismiss the American media establishment, Fox included, so that you have to look elsewhere to get the real story. It’s quite Orwellian, admittedly. But that’s where we’re at:

    Soviet America.

    The whole thing needs to completely collapse – burned to the ground. I’m slowly moving toward the position that domestic political involvement is counterproductive in that it only prolongs the road to Establishment self-destruction, which is already baked in the cake..

    • Since he’s getting his salary, this will hopefully bury FOX along with the rest of the MSM and give Tucker an opportunity to have his own channel.

      For Tucker = Win/Win

      For Fox = Stupid/Stupid.

      • I’m curious as to how long his contract lasts, mainly because he signed an NDA and can’t speak about the details of his firing.

        One thing’s for sure: Rupert met with his son Lachlan last Thursday at one of the DC airports and demanded that Lachlan sack Tucker.

        If there was any doubt that Rupert isn’t the “Right” part of the DS, that should settle it. I imagine that the DS is trying to regain control of the narratives that Tucker exposed.

    • I listened to RFK Jr’s speech last week in Boston. It was phenomenal. RFK stated he was censored for 18 years and has a lot to say the next 18 months. A storm is brewing and there is no stopping it no matter what the cabal does.

      Tucker is stupendous. RFK will reveal stuff that we all need to hear: about Ukraine, corporate fascism, Big Pharma, lockdowns, poverty, destruction of our infrastructure, where all the trillions went, CIA corruption etc! Get ready for the most important election in our lives. We shall push the marxists out! Hope reigns! Let us pray.

    • “Establishment self-destruction… is already baked in the cake.”

      Yep, precisely. Nailed it again, Misha.

      The modern American Cathedral (our “Establishment”) is like the ECUSA or the Church of England — it’s in the throes of self destruction, no matter what we do. We can try to push this process along, or we can sit back and try to protect ourselves as we observe it. Either way, it’ll happen. The process does not need our help.

      When someone (or an organization, or the “Cathedral” (our American “Establishment”)) is in the process of making a fool of itself as it self destructs, I choose to not get involved.

    • Michael Bauman says

      Already to the point of non-involvement. Let us also remember that Mr. Carlson also nailed the COVID lies including pushing deadly “vaccines” on us all including children.
      The powers that be want to put all of our children in a blender and press ‘High’. Corrupt, Maim and Kill is the Bi-partisan agenda for children.

      • That brings us up to almost a dozen heresies committed by Carlson while host of the highest-rated cable news program.

        1. COVID hysteria.
        2. Biolab leak/manufacture of same,
        3. Vaccine toxicity,
        4. Russia collusion hoax,
        5. Illegal occupation of Syria,
        6. Western provocation against Russia,
        7. Kievan persecution of Russophones in the Donbass,
        8. Neocon war agenda (in general),
        9. Exposing the Nordstream 2 pipeline explosion,
        10. Admitting that the CIA killed JFK,
        11. Giving RFK, Jr a viable platform from which to tell his narrative,
        12. The absurdity of the trans agenda,
        13. Etc.

  2. His comments about the sorry state of his own religious tradition were priceless. “Not even Christian.”

    • I know, it almost made me feel sorry for ECUSA.

      • I think we better follow his suggestion that we take 10 minutes a day to pray for this country.
        Imagine all those prayers storming heaven.

        • Amen to that, Lina. As a practical matter, we can all quite easily pray the the standard litany of every liturgy (as in beginning with, “For the peace from above…”and including “for the president of the United States, and “for all civil authorities, and for our armed forces everywhere….” We don’t have to be in the liturgy to pray such things.

          Some (I believe mistakenly) view such prayer as support for the policies of our political leaders, but it is not so. On the contrary, such prayer is offered that God might lead them to govern in a godly manner “that we might lead a calm and peaceful life in all godliness and holiness.

  3. I forgot to mention all the footage which Tucker got that exposed the falsity of the J6 narrative:

  4. Yet another reason they had to get rid of Tuck: he had more Democrats watching him than were watching Rachel Maddow:

  5. Tucker Carlson: See You Soon!

    [Video – 02:15]

    Tucker taster…?

  6. Michael Bauman says

    Over on The Guardian is an article touting the possibility of Carlson’s running for President

    • Interesting.

      One of the things we’re finding out is that in the old Soviet Union, the people knew they were being lied to, something we im the West are oblivious to.

      • Nate Trost says

        That Tucker Carlson’s avid viewers were oblivious they were being lied to is a harsh but fair assessment.

        Also, some of us in the West knew when the Kremlin was lying then, and know when the Kremlin is lying now.

        • Johann Sebastian says

          One of the greatest mistakes of our immigrant Orthodox forebears was to assimilate into American society. Little did they know what was down the road in two or three generations.

          Where are all the people who were shouting “Burn it all down” in the streets three years ago? They got their checks in the mail, it seems.

          The only way to cleanse the rot is to burn it all down. Just like Sodom and Gomorrha.

        • George Michalopulos says

          But the American DS and its handmaidens in the mainstream media have never lied to the American people, Nate?

          Are you serious?

      • Oh, I think an increasing number know that the entire media apparatus is corrupt and dishonest. The only problem is to fix the elections so that one side doesn’t have the advantage of being the only ones to “exploit” ballot harvesting; i.e., cheat outright. Fix that and the moderate majority will rectify the worst of it.

        Yet I still think America has sunk so low into liberalism that it will not be able to extricate itself before the whole thing collapses. The degeneration has just gone too far. Even the conservatives are far too tolerant.

    Meanwhile, Gonzalo Lira has been taken again

    Detaining Gonzalo Lira: Another blow to the freedom of press in Ukraine

    ‘ The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) arrested Gonzalo Lira, a US-Chilean national residing in Kharkiv, on suspicions of harbouring pro-Russian sentiments. This marks the second time Lira has been apprehended by the SBU. Lira, an author and filmmaker who relocated to Kharkiv years ago and married a Ukrainian, was initially detained in April 2022 but was released after a week without charges. He was subsequently instructed not to leave the city and prohibited from discussing his arrest.

    As reported by Ukrainian media, the SBU’s statement accuses Lira of publicly justifying Russia’s armed aggression, denying or glorifying supposed Russian war crimes, and undermining Ukraine’s top military and political leadership and Defence Forces.

    On May 5, the SBU website published a statement in Ukrainian titled “SBU detained a foreign blogger in Kharkiv who denied the crimes of the Russian Federation and insulted Ukrainian defenders.” The statement alleges that Lira was among the first to support Russian invaders and glorify their war crimes. It also accuses him of discrediting Ukraine’s military-political leadership and Defense Forces. The SBU claims that Lira filmed provocative videos featuring Ukrainian defenders and insulted them.

    Lira disseminated his “streams” on his YouTube and Telegram channels, amassing nearly 300,000 subscribers. He also denied Russian missile attacks on Ukrainian cities and the mass murder of civilians by Russian forces. The SBU has notified Lira of suspicion under parts 2 and 3 of Article 436-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (manufacturing and distributing materials containing justification of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, committed repeatedly).

    In March 2022, Ukraine’s parliament enacted 14 laws to counter Russian aggression, including two that modify legislation on information activity. These laws prohibit mass media from justifying or legitimising the denial of Russia’s armed aggression in Ukraine and the occupation of its territories. They also forbid the glorification of individuals involved in the aggression or administration of occupied areas.

    The Ukrainian Criminal Code now contains Article 435-1, which establishes liability for threatening or insulting military personnel and their families, and Article 436-2, which pertains to the justification or denial of Russian military aggression, the occupation of Ukrainian territories, and the glorification of those involved in the aggression or occupation. Penalties for these offences range from arrest for up to 6 months to imprisonment for up to 8 years, depending on the circumstances.

    The SBU filmed Lira’s arrest, during which heavily armed agents were involved. All participants’ faces, except Lira’s, were blurred out. A close-up of a smartphone displaying an image of Lira’s children as a screensaver was also left un-blurred. Lira is currently detained on suspicion of producing and disseminating materials justifying the Russian Federation’s armed aggression against Ukraine. The edited video shows heavily armed special forces knocking on Lira’s door and aiming a machine gun at the 55-year-old Lira, who opens the door in his pyjamas. The metal soundtrack from Override Spedup fades down enough to hear the words of a special forces member telling Lira while tapping his arm: “Welcome to Ukraine.”

    While it is true that Lira has criticised the Zelensky regime and the eight-year-long shelling of Donbas residents by Kyiv, he has not participated in any activities other than exercising his right to free speech as a citizen and respected journalist. Whether or not we agree with Lira’s opinions, freedom of speech must not be restricted, especially during times of conflict. These are the values we claim to be defending.

    Ukraine’s recent implementation of laws criminalising dissent, banning opposition political parties, nationalising the media, and even persecuting the Ukrainian Orthodox Church for maintaining canonical communion with Moscow has raised concerns among free speech advocates. These actions have been criticised for undermining democratic values and creating a chilling effect on freedom of expression.

    The detainment of Gonzalo Lira serves as a stark reminder of the delicate balance between national security and individual liberties, especially during times of conflict. It also raises questions about the Zelensky administration’s dedication to democratic principles and the obligation of its Western supporters to address these concerns. As the situation in Ukraine continues to unfold, it is crucial for the international community to remain vigilant in advocating for the protection of freedom of speech and other fundamental rights, while holding governments accountable for their actions.

    Since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, Western media and governments have systematically overlooked or even suppressed news and information about any undemocratic, criminal, or corrupt activities or even war crimes committed by the Ukrainian side of the conflict, while emphasising the same from the Russian side.

    Gonzalo Lira is a Chilean-American writer, filmmaker, and financial analyst. Born on November 29, 1972, in Santiago, Chile, he spent much of his life in the United States. He is known for his work as a novelist, screenwriter, and director, as well as his contributions to the financial sector, particularly in economics and investment strategy.

    Lira has authored several novels, such as “Counterparts,” “Acrobat,” and “Gegenspieler.” He maintains a presence on YouTube, where he shares his insights on politics and social issues. He is also a regular guest on the acclaimed “Mother of All Talk Shows (MOATS)” hosted by George Galloway.

    Lira is recognised for his controversial and outspoken style, which has both attracted and repelled various audiences. Despite the polarising nature of his opinions, he has developed a loyal following of people who appreciate his candour and expertise. Lira is active on Twitter, YouTube, and Telegram and has over 300,000 followers.

    For the truth about the Zelensky regime, Google these names:

    Vlodymyr Struk
    Denis Kireev
    Mikhail & Aleksander Kononovich
    Nestor Shufrych
    Yan Taksyur
    Dmitri Djangirov
    Elena Berezhnaya

    Once again: If you haven’t heard from me in 12 hours or more, put my name on this list.

    — Gonzalo Lira (@GonzaloLira1968) April 22, 2022

    His last tweet on April 22 mentioned the names of several Ukrainian dissidents who have been killed or arrested by the Kyiv regime. The list includes Volodymyr Struk, a Ukrainian politician who was abducted and killed in March 2022 during the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and Denis Kireev, a Ukrainian official executed in the street shortly after attending the first round of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine in Belarus. ‘

    • I did hear he was in jail again. I remember the last time he disappeared he was shock at how upset people were and apologetic, as it was not his intent. Makes me fear for him all the more this time. It’s obviously been more than 12 hours.
