Chattering Class is Chattering: Tucker in 2024!

 “There’s a lot to be said for being fearless, and he is, while Republican politicians, as a breed, are not.”

(Rich Lowry, editor of the National Review)

 

In case you have been too busy worrying about the year from hell—2020—and how to survive it, the chattering class has begun to speculate about who the Republicans could put up in 2024 and Politico is reporting that a good bet is Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

If that were to come to pass, it means that Donald Trump was not an aberration, but truly did wrest control of the old (timid!) Republican Party (the one most of us are sick of!).

Here is Politico today:

Tucker Carlson 2024? The GOP is buzzing

Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024.

Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary.

“He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016.

While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” is currently the most watched cable news program in history, according to the second quarter ratings released this week. And on Fox News’ YouTube channel, Carlson’s segments from the past quarter have drawn well over 60 million views and are among the most popular videos in the eight years since the network began posting on the platform.

His popularity with the base would instigate a debate over the future of the party — essentially whether Trump was an aberration or a party-realigning disrupter — a fight that will be all the fiercer if Trump loses in November.

“Let me put it this way: If Biden wins and Tucker decided to run, he’d be the nominee,” said Sam Nunberg, a former top political aide to Trump who knows Carlson. But Nunberg said he doesn’t believe Carlson will run because “he’s so disgusted with politicians.”

Sounds like a good reason to run!

Because I don’t have a category for good guys here at ‘Frauds and Crooks,‘ I’ve filed this in my ‘activism’ category.

Pelosi and Gang Make Major Move to Snooker America

You have surely heard the rumors that some Dems have taken advantage of their ‘vacation’ to get face work done. Watching Nancy yesterday should confirm for you that she must have been one of them.

I know you are saying, so what else is new, but this latest gambit by the Dems to include amnesty for illegal aliens (not to mention payments to them!) due to the Chinese virus is a bridge too far.

Fortunately Tucker took her on in a ten minute segment at Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Normally I don’t write about topics that are widely covered by all sorts of media, but this is just too much.

And, our Open Borders agitators are not alone as Gatestone reported here yesterday in a detailed discussion of what is happening in Europe where the socialists are not letting a crisis go to waste and are looking to legalize the illegals too.

“Coronavirus: Lockdown for Europeans, Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants”

Read Gatestone and then see Tucker (let me know if this youtube video disappears as happens often these days).

Tucker Carlson Nails It! All You Need to Know About GOP Governors Who Turned on Trump!

Editor: I don’t like to cross-post between my two blogs (I fear it looks lazy!), but it is very important that what Tucker Carlson reported last night gets the widest distribution possible. (I don’t know how many of you read RRW.)

Much of what is discussed in Carlson’s piece is that the Christian federal contractors pushing for more refugees are not truly ‘religious’ charities when they are paid by taxpayers for their supposed good works—so the topic is apropos for ‘Frauds and Crooks.’

 

In just a little over 5 minutes last night Tucker Carlson in a segment on the US Refugee Admissions Program and the President’s efforts to reform it, explains exactly what we have been saying for weeks in dozens of posts.

Especially interesting is the focus on phony Christian charity as Carlson’s millions of viewers learn that it is federal contractors masquerading as charitable religious groups that have successfully lobbied Republican governors—18 so far—to thumb their noses at Trump and ask for more refugees for their states!

It is vitally important that you send this far and wide. Hat tip: Brenda.

The segment begins here:

 

Don’t miss my post yesterday about CAIR sending wet kisses to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan when he became the 18th governor to say his state welcomes more poverty from the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Why is the Daily Caller Shilling for the Refugee Industry?

To readers at ‘Frauds and Crooks:’  Some days I just run out of time to write at both Refugee Resettlement Watch and at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’  This is one such day.

Tucker Carlson founded the Daily Caller in 2010

I spent several hours this morning writing this post at RRW and hope you will go there to see it because I can reach more potential readers here now than at RRW.

When WordPressdotcom took RRW down I lost my subscribers which numbered around 5,000 and so far have only recovered a few hundred of them (I know it takes time!).

Here is today’s post at RRW, I hope you will go read it.

It is frustrating to see that a conservative publication like the Daily Caller knows so little about the US Refugee Admissions Program.  The reporter is very young, but gee where are the editors?

Portland Refugee Agency Accused by AFSCME of Opposing Unionization

This post isn’t going to be one of those juicy crime stories I enjoy writing (and you enjoy reading!), but this news is worth your time and consideration.
It is a story about the Left eating its own….

‘Non-profit’ Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy group employees want to unionize.

 
Perhaps one of the most important and consistent themes in my writing since I first became aware of the refugee program and immigration issues generally has been my focus on fake non-profit groups with increasing (often ruthless) political power disguised under what I call a “white hat of humanitarianism.”
I call them fake because the they don’t have enough private charitable support, but get their financial (and thus political!) power by using our money—the US taxpayers’ money!
They use OUR money to promote their extreme Leftwing political agenda!
Just a few days ago, I told you again about David Miliband, the CEO of the financially largest of the government-funded resettlement contractors bashing the President while he is paid over $800,000 a year as a non-profit CEO!
What does he do that is more valuable to us than the President, the VEEP, US Senators or Supreme Court Justices who make only a fraction of what he does!
So, therefore this is kind of a fun story as the Leftists attack each other in Oregon.
