How is it that someone as intelligent as Tucker Carlson remains confused about the difference between a democracy and a constitutional republic?

In a democracy the majority rules. If the majority decided they wanted your bike, they could take it.

In a republic your bike is your property and you do not owe it to anyone. It cannot be taken against your will, by law.

America is a Constitutional Republic.

Therefore, the Consitution is the law by which we are supposed to be prorected.

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic; but THE UNITED STATES, the foreign corporation which has owned and operated The District of Columbia (plus all federal lands and buildings) since The Act of 1871 is a democracy. It is to this they are referring when they spout about "our democracy." The Republic has been sidelined and we have all been deliberately deceived.

I just watched the same video on another platform, and "democracy" was omitted from it...interesting

I wouldn't get into the weeds over definitions. It is what it is. Basically a pos by any other name.

I will not stray from true definitions, like they did when they changed the definition of vaccine. BIG mistake.

Yes, words are very important. Thoughts create emotions, emotions create words, words create actions.

A man is an adult human with XY chromosomes. A woman is an adult human with XX chromosomes. The best explanation of trans that I have read came from Clif High, who says they are suffering from disease called "Munchhausen by Proxy":

America has not been a functioning republic since at least WW1. The present system is "liberal-fascism": rule by a corporatist oligarchy behind a false front of liberal democracy.

Anyone who still thinks your bike, your house, your money, or even your life "cannot be taken against your will" by unaccountable govt agents, with full support of the so-called "justice system", should read the essays by constitutional attorney John Whitehead:

Apologies.

How can Tucker talk like Twitter is the answer after all the deplatforming and censorship it has engaged in?

Sure, Musk bought it, but I'm hearing it still engages in censorship and deplatforming to a degree.

Let's say I'm extremely disappointed.

He lied about twitter, they do not allow Alex Jones, Owen Shroyer and Mike Adams just to name a few, on their platform and he knows it.

We know what Elon is up to with his neurolink and his desire to own the AP for social credit scores. Smart of him to recruit Tucker as he can bring many more people to win the RFP for the digitalization of humanity. Whoever has the most people on their platform wins.

Tucker is the real deal. Meaning he is authentic and is not part of the deep state. I'm sure of this and cannot explain why at this time, although I can say good friends know him personally. I am thrilled that he is talking about all of the issues we've all wanted to have come to light.

What Tucker is describing in the first part of this Tweet is called a “quibble”, deliberately leaving out relevant facts in a statement in order to give a false impression to the audience, which impression would be reversed if the missing facts had been admitted. A quibble is the equivalent of a lie - a purposeful attempt to deceive. At USMA, at least in my era, when proven by a Cadet Honor Committee, such resulted in immediate dismissal from the Academy. Our MSM, and frankly. a large percentage of our elected, wallow in this deceit to deliberately mislead those they are supposed to inform or serve. And, by the way, some of the spokesmen for our Intell agencies.

I'll admit it did not take the 20 minutes or so to watch before this comment, but here goes.

Twitter is a cess pool that has destroyed the act of conversation, and has probably done more to destroy the fabrics of society than any other platform.

Tucker Carlson has been a mostly correct voice for several years. Does he make mistakes, sure. Is he eerily close to those who slither in and out if the swamp, definitely. But for now I trust (but verify) what he has to say.

I don't partake of the twit, and I won't download any Musk X app, even for Tucker.

I am a bit surprised at the level of anger from here about his use of the phrase democracy, and his associations with Musk. I am fully aware that this country was founded as a Constitutional Republic, at the federal level, but the idea of the democratic vote for many things outside of the federal government is also a known given.

I honestly don't understand why otherwise astute people are falling for the Tucker Carlson psyop.

Expand full comment

It must be a well-designed and executed psyop then, eh?!

Tucker teaming up with Elon is all I need to know. What do people see in him anyway? Yes, he talked about a few things other MSM pundits didn't, but he's no investigative journalist and never uncovered anything that people following alt media and Substacks such as this one didn't already know. So what's the big deal?

Expand full comment

Twitter, Facebook etc nope, nope. Miss Tucker but have never been on any social media and as much as I miss Tucker do not want to start. I hope he has his videos, info downloaded onto his website eventually. From what I've read in comments I'm sure I'm not alone.

Twitter, like Facebook Linkedin and others only incite more rage through their blue backgrounds coupled with blue-light tech:
