Tucker: Ukraine's Borders are vital for US, but US Borders aren't

Donald Trump was elected on a platform of normalizing relations with Russia, but “getting along” with Russia “is a crime” for US foreign policy, Tucker Carlson said Wednesday night [November 13th] on Fox News. Carlson showed footage of George Kent from Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, in which the man said “our national interest” requires “a Ukraine whole, free, and at peace, including Crimea and Donbass, territories currently occupied by Russia.”

Carlson warned his viewers to be patient. “You need to get a pen, this is getting complex but this is important […] The territorial integrity of Ukraine is essential to America’s national interests but our own borders mean nothing. Defending them is racist and immoral.”

Tucker went on to dismiss the Russia threat narrative as a hoax, as if the Soviet Union were still around and kicking. He went on to say that Russia’s economy is the size of Italy, that its military budget is 1/10th of the USA’s, and that its sole aircraft carrier needs to be towed along the ocean because it’s broken. I have an observation to make here. Can you imagine the magnitude of Anti-Russian propaganda far and wide, if the Kremlin was actually trying to match the USA’s war, ah, pardon, defence budget? Heaven have mercy…

Carlson concluded, “If we’re really being honest here, Russia poses no threat to the United States at all.” He also played audio of Trump criticizing disproportionate US involvement in Ukraine, and the fact that no regional state actor from NATO is involved there.

Shame on all so-called progressives who support this impeachment process, motivated only to cover up the previous administration’s skeletons, plus the desire to get in a new president who will make fewer waves against Deep State foreign and domestic policy.

I’ve noticed a disturbing trend at Fox lately, they have been skating dangerously close to journalism…

He’s the rare and only exception. The rest of them push the war propaganda i’ve noticed.

Satire alert…I have never actually watched Fox, its a sarcastic reference to this story (particularly him talking about the actual state of threat that Russia presents) and the story they ran with the pathologist talking about Epstein’s “suicide”.

Daniel C is right.
There’s no essential difference between Fox and the rest. Even Roger Stone said this.
Tucker Carlson is the lone exception.

The only reason the United States wants Crimea and Donbass so they can build Military and Naval Bases to control the Black Sea.

Someone mentioned some time back in this regard that Russia “annexed” the Crimea 276 years ago…when I pointed out that was before the USA came into existence…and asked them what was their point…Got no answer…

All the nefarious activities the US has carried out…always in the interests of “national security”. And the world still falls for this line time and again.

Not “the world”, only the dumbest of the semi-literate American mouth breathers actually believe it . Even the NWO sock puppets in Canada and the EU that cynically lip synch along know its BS, but it provides cover for their “handlers”, so they participate in the charade.

The world doesn’t really fall for it – unless ‘the world’ consists of the USA only. The ROW just keeps its lips zipped for obvious reasons.

Im not American, so I don’t know for sure, but I think (hope??) theres a substantial percentage of Americans that are no longer falling for it.

When the intel agencies and their controlled MSM see that their fear and hate tactics are failing they engineer a false flag to scare the people back into line.

The title of this article says it all. Demented US elites are self-destructive. They are the enemy of the American people and even humanity. What is pumping blood in their veins since they have no heart.
