And “think tank” is equivalent to “fermenting dumpster fire”. Frequently two guys and a rent-a-office.

Tucker Carlson? That’d be a stretch.

GOP, the party of family values fake revenge porn.

“Here officer, let me correct that citation.”

“There’s that’s better. Instead of speeding now it’s a ticket of appreciation for driving so well.”

“Thanks.”

For any furloughed U.S. Govies reading, these are the assholes who voted against you getting back pay after the shut down ends.

“no” votes came from Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Glen Grothman (Wis.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Chip Roy (Texas) and Ted Yoho (Fla.).

Tucker Carlson, breaking with the GOP establishment by criticising late-stage capitalism through a right-wing populist lens and cementing his alignment with the fascists and white nationalists:

A translation follows:

America’s [Jewish] “ruling class,” Carlson says, are the “mercenaries” behind the failures of the middle class — including sinking [white] marriage rates — and “the ugliest parts of our financial system.” He went on: “Any economic system that weakens and destroys [white] families is not worth having. A system like that is the enemy of a healthy [white] society.”

He concluded with a demand for “a fair country [for white people]. A decent country [for white people]. A cohesive country [for white people]. A country whose leaders don’t accelerate the forces of change purely for their own profit and amusement [as rootless cosmopolitans are wont to do].”

Moreover, in Carlson’s words: “At some point, Donald Drumpf will be gone. The rest of us [white people] will be gone too. The country will remain. What kind of [mongrelised and miscegenated] country will be it be then?”

[…]

I spoke with Carlson by phone this week to discuss his monologue and its economic — and cultural — meaning. He agreed that his monologue was reminiscent of Warren, referencing her 2003 book The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents Are Growing Broke. “There were parts of the book that I disagree with, of course,” he told me [“like reforms that benefit non-white Americans”]. “But there are parts of it that are really important and true. And nobody wanted to have that conversation.”

Carlson wanted to be clear: He’s just asking questions. [Yes, he actually says that]

Note the author. Why Ken Starr is taken seriously by any mainstream outlet after his handling of the Baylor rape cases is a puzzle.
