TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS CHANNEL HOST: Good evening and welcome to a Special Edition of TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT.
When was the last time you heard a Democratic politician propose a solution to a problem — no matter what the problem is — that didn’t make the Democratic Party more powerful? Ponder that for a moment. Let’s say, for example, that you really believe global warming was an existential threat to humanity and that rising carbon dioxide levels were causing global warming. What would you do to fix it?
Well, you might think back to 10th grade biology class CO2. CO2, hmm. Don’t trees consume huge amounts of CO2 for photosynthesis? Quick Google check. Why, yes, they do. So, how about we plant a whole lot more trees all across the country and across the world? That seems like a natural solution with lots of upsides. Trees are beautiful. It might help fight global warming.
Oh, but no. There’s a problem with that idea. Planting more trees might help solve climate change, but it definitely will not enrich your donors. Trees are cheap. It’s hard to make money from trees. And worse than that, trees are impossible to regulate. Once you plant trees, they grow by themselves. They do not need Federal help.
Trees definitely will not make you more powerful. So instead, here’s an idea. Let’s invest trillions of dollars of other people’s money in batteries and wind farms and electric school buses. That way, Democratic politicians get fingertip control over the entire U.S. economy and all of their friends get rich. Sounds perfect. Let’s go with that idea.
That’s how Democratic politicians think, every one of them. So, it probably should not surprise you that Elizabeth Warren has a brand-new plan for rising gas prices and naturally, it goes without saying, that plan would give Elizabeth Warren a lot more control over you and over the United States.
Well, hold on a minute, you may be wondering, why should Elizabeth Warren have control over anything? Elizabeth Warren isn’t very bright. She’s never created anything. In fact, she’s a proven liar. This is a person who exploited the suffering of American Indians to get a job promotion. “The Trail of Tears means I need tenure.” Okay, so in every possible way, Elizabeth Warren is mediocre. Yet, and here’s the catch — she’s also a U.S. senator and that means she has power.
