Via Kim Carlson on FB:

"If you can't say what you think, you're a slave."

–Tucker Carlson

"Being inflexible is one of the worst human characteristics. Being flexible allows you to grow."

–Clayton Morris

Tucker Carlson admits that "the most important experience in the life of a man is humiliation and failure. I was not only wrong about Iraq, I was so wrong that I was humiliated by it." He not only supported the war but attacked those who didn't as unpatriotic and admittedly used the lowest propaganda techniques in smearing those who disagreed with him. He went to Iraq right after the invasion and his life changed forever. And the reason it changed was because he realized how wrong he was. He made the public admission in December of 2003 in a NY Times interview. He was rebuked by a former colleague who thought his criticizing the Iraq war was disgraceful, but he decided that not only could he no longer lie, but that he could not disavow the fact that he *had* lied. He made a break with his old life regardless of the consequences. "The beginning of all wisdom is admitting how screwed up you are," he told Clayton Morris. "If you start there, you're much more likely to end up with the truth." Also, being open-minded, letting the evidence guide your perception. Amen, Tucker.

If his severance has a non-compete clause or NDA he won't be able to say anything. It's just more confirmation the Uniparty and Globalist red-blue scam is all a distraction and illusion. All big corporations play for one team, and it's not team humanity.

Yep that's how they kept Jesse Ventura quiet.

They gave him a deal for MSNBC and then kept him off the air. During the contract he was paid but could not go on other shows

The problem? He might have proven that Fox lost the lawsuit on purpose due to freemason infiltration?

Dominion over US

You can’t make this stuff up. Do they laugh in our faces? Was the name Dominion chosen to prove their dominion?

Carlson is going to jump on another platform and continue as an independent journalist - he's got a voice and millions of followers/supporters.

Fox trying to enforce any gag order will merely speak to their cowardice and lack of ethicality and undermine their credibility even further.

Carlson isn't going to speak about Fox - he has news to report - their story is just sad, tired, rhetorical bullshit.

Let's see what pans out - I can see him on substack

PS - whenever any "news" corporation tries to censor someone, more people's curiosity is piqued and they demand to hear what they have to say.

Okay, @TuckerCarlson, now that you've been liberated and unmuzzled, come to @SubstackInc and say everything you've been forbidden from saying, first and foremost:

MAA- assume you saw Tucker interview Ed Dowd?

Yes, that's when my estimation for him went up.

He should put together a Rumble podcast. He's a visual media guy. That is his gift. Some are writers, his is public speaking.

You can do video posts on Substack, but yeah, Rumble could probably make him a tantalizing offer that would be hard to turn down, like they did with Glenn Greenwald and Russell Brand.

Yep. And all of them should cross-pollinate. Promote the others, package subscription or referral discounts. Like fast food franchise siting strategies. Identify high traffic interesection, build a McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and Taco Bell on each corner, becomes a destination for eats. Forgetting for purposes of this comparison how crappy those food offerings are. But highlights instances where competition becomes a benefit for all. Makes it a destination for alternative news and analysis.

I might subscribe, but one if Tucker’s gifts is being able to engage his audience. Writing alone hides that. Podcast is a better format.

Quite a few people I read think Tucker was only ever a limited hangout tool. They made some good points. I’ve been on the fence about him for awhile now.

Or, as someone else commented, he may have an NDS on him for the financial bailout he gets. He probably loves his family and will sign, if so.

I guess we may find out what the truth is coming up.

He could also go to Rumble like Glenn Greewald and others have done, many would follow him and both would grow exponentially, if he wanted to do his own show.

I watched a Tucker interview of RFKjr. It was a very good six and a half minutes.

Why does every demoRat hate him? I don't agree with him on every point , obviously, but he is okay...

My brother in law who’s a lifetime Dem Trump hater/Fauci worshipper and reads

the NY TIMES daily told we while I was up in Boston why he’s down on RFK Jr. It’s because of everything the Times and NPR say. They are the torchbearers of Truth, political correctness and of course Trump Derangement Syndrome. How dare Bobby say we need to improve election integrity! What gall that he wants vaccines safety standards improved. And how awful that some in the Kennedy family disagree with him.

This is a very strange time we are living in. The age of Fear, Arrogance and Ignorance Is upon us.

It’s hard to sway those hardcore NY Times and NPR ‘junkies’ off their ‘crack cocaine’ news!

They are GONERS! I know I have a handful of cousins who are in that group. (But no more liberal ‘friends’.) Thankfully all my immediate family and now new found ‘freedom friends’ never took even one ‘hit’ of any of the BS!

Expand full comment

Just consider the piles upon piles of ego that someone would have to let go of in order to admit that they’d been duped by the Times. My brother in law won’t even look at the proof because “it’s beneath him to stoop so low and look at the other side of the story”. Looks like an Ivy League education and a medical practice can buy you a lifetime of ignorance and arrogance. Glad I walked away.

They've been sold the story that engaging with any dissenting voices in any way legitimizes misinformation (or worse).

Oh and a PS: I had a former liberal ‘Friend’, who grew up in Watertown, MA, but has been a resident of CA for almost 40 years. She was an avid Democrat and supporter of the Kennedys, being from Boston and all.

At the beginning of Covid in 2020, I sent her a few pieces and interviews from CHD and RFK Jr. about Covid, childhood vaxxines, the Covid vaxx, election integrity, etc. Her replies to me were just like your brother’s thinking. Needless to say after a 30+ year ‘friendship’ I cut the cord with her back in mid 2020!

Expand full comment

I also had a friend who, as a lifelong democrat, would not look at anything I sent her about RFKJr. Said he's a cheater (marital) and the Black Sheep of his extended family who had distanced themselves from him. But this friend is always always always on top of and follows trends latest products, latest ingredients, fashions, etc.) so I'm not surprised she fell for the trendy illness fear. Wore masks in her FB photos with a Thumbs Up. Hoarded masks and N95s. I put our friendship on hiatus in October of 2020 because I had to redirect some many conversations (it's all she talked about) and was getting nothing out of the relationship. Three years later, I do not regret my actions. That makes me sad...

for “dealia, Celia”, a like. 😂

I also have wondered about that. I can comprehend the "elite" Counterpunch left always hating him (not that I endorse the position and feel they would NOT have if he was critical of the Iraq War, which he himself regrets). But the typical DemoRat? Maybe just illustrates how brain dead they've become.

Expand full comment

RFK Jr said in an interview that Roger Ailes told him years ago that he couldn’t have him on as a guest lest Big Pharma phone Murdoch 30 minutes after the interview. Tucker interviews RFK Jr and magically Fox-Vioxx settles a big “conspiracy theory” lawsuit and torches Tucker.

This article about repression against journalists from Sunday's EL PAÍS mentions the WALL STREET JOURNAL's Evan Gershkovich as a victim of censorship in Moscow. It also alludes to censorship in Nicaragua, North Korea, and China.

The is no mention of Spanish journalist, Pablo González, currently detained in Poland.

There's not a word about Julian Assange, Matt Taibbi, RT, or intimidation of journalists in the US, the UK, or Canada.

I doubt that there will be anything in tomorrow's EL PAÍS about Tucker.

You mean Gershkovich isn't a spy? Forgot, he couldn't be. Only RT has spies posing as journalists, but some wackos still insist the U.S. media has a documented history of infiltration.

Domestic propaganda legalized in 2013. Bipartisan.

Fox, all legacy media is government controlled propaganda. If you only get info from "Trusted Sources" you're out of step with the majority of Americans. Tucker goes to alternative media now. And brings along an enormous following with him - where he gets to fully speak freely. Worst move ever by this regime, they may have power, but they don't have smarts. Letting the biggest voice in controlled opposition become uncontrolled!

This is a blessing. I've wanted Tucker (and any TRUE American) to leave Fox since 2020, his presence gave credibility to an untrustworthy media source, kept too many people tuning in to that controlled opposition propaganda source who oppose D's and leftism believing they were getting truthful info, the other side of the story in its entirety. Alternative free media is our way out of tyranny rising. Not a controlled outlet to vent opposition out of.

Controlled opposition like Fox acts like a valve on a pressure cooker lid. There to let out steam to keep pot from exploding, controlled release of steam. That's all it's been. Fewer eyeballs and minds will be constrained by that valve. Uncontrolled Tucker out helps. That pot needs to explode, the shrapnel needs to take out the evil regime that's been cooking us for too long. GREAT news!!!

Fox dumped Dan Bongino last week as well. He said it was over failed contract negotiations and there was no bad blood. Said very nice things about those he worked with at Fox.

I think that the Dominion concession has made Fox broke and they can't afford Tucker any more.

Expand full comment

Perhaps I am wrong. Maybe it was because he called out Pharma propped up networks.

Kennedy just tweeted this:

"Robert F. Kennedy Jr

@RobertKennedyJr

Fox fires @TuckerCarlson five days after he crosses the red line by acknowledging that the TV networks pushed a deadly and ineffective vaccine to please their Pharma advertisers. Carlson’s breathtakingly courageous April 19 monologue broke TV’s two biggest rules: Tucker told the truth about how greedy Pharma advertisers controlled TV news content and he lambasted obsequious newscasters for promoting jabs they knew to be lethal and worthless. For many years, Tucker has had the nation's biggest audience averaging 3.5 million — 10 times the size of CNN. Fox just demonstrated the terrifying power of Big Pharma."

News Corp (FOX) has lost a BILLION in market cap today. It could not have been about Tucker's salary in that case.

Her accusations sound pretty vague thus far. Would need to know more to tell if this had merit. Also, if it were just this, she could easily be paid off with what Tucker makes in a day for them.
