Tucker: This is why Americans put up with woke garbageNov 22, 2021
good evening and welcome to
tuckercarlson tonight in january 2000 bill clinton delivered his final state of the union address in congress clinton used that speech to push to remove trade barriers against the government of china here is the argument he made to let china into the world the clinton trade organization promised america that night he would cite open china's markets to the united states and clearly cite he would promote the cause of peace in asia and promote the cause of change in china in his senior year in office clinton made expanding the china economy one of her highest pressing priorities to do so she appointed a lobbyist named steve roshetti and put him in charge of the project fast forward to today china has been a member of the world trade organization for 20 years old steve roshetti has risen even higher in democratic politics he is now a leader white house aide to joe bid as for china it has indeed changed as bill clinton promised china is now the richest country in the world the world its police state is much more efficiently authoritarian even than it was under chairman mao china is a much bigger threat worse for the us and its neighbors we are as far from peace in asia as we have been since 1945. american manufacturing Meanwhile, the industry effectively disappeared, evaporated along with millions of middle-class jobs.
Most of the items you buy now are made in China. your containers you will hear the scene described as being part of something called the global supply chain but that intentionally understates what it is really what you are seeing is the US supply lines at
thispoint we are effectively an outpost totally dependent on a faraway headquarters for the things we need to live on
thisis what it looks like why so many empty shelves usa ports are clogged look at these cargo ships sitting at sea waiting to arrive port is causing major usa retailers like walmart, home depot and costco target private cargo ships in a rush to fill shelves for the holiday season there's a trucker shortage on the highways the white house says it's tackling problems fueled by greed 19 labor shortages and demand surge suddenly for the first time in generations Americans are having trouble shopping for necessities the things they need a new survey by rasmussen found that 62 percent of
americanssaid they have shortages at the stores where they live the things they can buy are suddenly much more expensive the Labor Department reported Wednesday meat poultry fish and eggs are up a combined 10.5 percent since september 2020 but it's not just food prices that are soaring the consumer price index shows overall prices are up 5.4 percent from a year ago more pain in the pumps the national the price of gasoline rose a dollar from last year yyy showing the average price per gallon from 218 in 2020 to 3.29 this year on s The social security administration says that inflation is the which is why the nearly 70 million Americans who receive Social Security benefits will see a nearly six percent increase in payments next year, and he highest rise in four decades, there's no sign that, fundamentally, any of this is going to improve anytime soon, in fact, on Wednesday, the administration acknowledged that your heating bills are likely to rise by more than 50 percent this winter.
That's the kind of stuff that people really notice. It hurts when it gets poorer and a lot of people are getting poorer, but strangely, the administration has refused to acknowledge this. anyway, they're celebrating last night, a harvard professor named jason furman, who was closely aligned with the biden white house, sent this tweet, quote, most economic problems we face, inflation, supply chains , etc., are high-class problems that we would not have. I would if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent end of quote in other words you should be glad to have less money it means we are winning ron clayne who is joe biden's chief of staff in the house blanca quickly endorsed that tweet and that is delusional or maybe it's intentional you pretend your failures are victories and some people will no doubt think you seem to work in afghanistan maybe it will work here that might be their thinking but it won't work here because the Home economics is not like foreign policy, people notice when their own lives change when you can't buy Christmas presents for your kids or keep your house. warm in January, these are not symbolic problems, they are measurable declines in your family's standard of living and they have consequences if the economic decline continues and seems likely to continue, you will see a profound political reset in this country and this is the only reason why the one
americanshave to put up with the endless aroused crap the left turns out by the gallon is because they can afford to put up with it for generations this has been a v u rich country and wealth covers a multitude of sins people will put up with a lot of things with who disagrees as long as gas is cheap and Amazon deliveries keep coming, but when a society becomes impoverished, people's attitudes change and change rapidly, for one thing, they become much less patient when mistreated you fire me right Before Christmas, because I won't accept your opportunity, I can't resist when you tell me that my son can't get a job because he has the color wrong skin no thats wrong and i will fight etc etc etc politics will look very different in a country with permanent scarcity and this may come as a nasty surprise to the democrat party the whole program of the progressive left is based on the presumption of infinite wealth, of course. we can afford that we are rich people like nancy pelosi and sandy cortez and rashida tilly believe that and they believe it on faith they talk about economics but they have no idea how the real economy works they know nothing about the big machine of American wealth, they have never really had a job, all they know for sure is that everything good should be free, it has to be, but that's not how life works, certainly not in countries that don't have the currency of world reserve there's a reason they don't have drag story time in mexico people in michoacan are worried about tortilla prices and cartel shootings they don't have time for that kind of nonsense we're talking about To become much more like Mexico, it turns out that our economy was much more fragile than we thought it was and if we had known that sooner, we might not have elected an economic illiterate like Joe Biden as president. entity.
Here's Joe Biden on the campaign trail explaining to CNN Presents that actually printing trillions of dollars new for wasteful government social programs will reduce inflation if you're pumping all this money into the economy, couldn't that add up to not looking? This is the Moody's deal today and when a Wall Street firm, not a liberal think tank, said that if we pass the other two things that I'm trying to do, we will in fact reduce inflation we will reduce inflation we will reduce inflation because we are going to provide good opportunities and jobs for people who is actually going to reinvest that money in all the things we are talking about?
Did I say the campaign? He was actually president when he said that was in June when he stood on stage, looked directly into the camera and told us. that when you make more money when you print more US dollars the value of US dollars goes up and then you see CNN anchors nod like cattle it made sense to them but of course it's ridiculous it's something almost every person in their sane have recognized since inflation is rising because the government has devalued the us dollar by making too many us dollars that are like sand now not worth much but still the white house doesn't seem concerned pete but a judge has been on leave from his job s Since August, after taking child paternity leave, he has been called trying to figure out how to breastfeed.
It's not known how that went, but now he's back in office as transportation secretary and he's deeply amused, he says, to see dozens of container ships can't. come into this country as we look at these supply chain issues how bad it's going to get for Americans and I'm talking specifically, you know, before the December holidays where people are relying on getting goods to get gifts, well, I think there have always been two types of Christmas shoppers there are the ones who have their entire list full for Halloween and then there are the people like me who show up at the mall on Christmas Eve if you are in that stairwell obviously there will be more challenges. from a funny silly dad story i wait until the last minute to buy christmas thats not the point pete its a judge the point is you are the secretary of transportation and our transportation network is broken and people cant get gifts from christmas for your kids or food you want to eat or things you would like to buy our shelves are empty it's a problem no it's a funny thing the deeper truth is people can't get consumer goods because we are too dependent on china because our leaders outsourced all of our production to a foreign country and now they're joking and they want you to believe that's a good thing and because they want you to believe it's a good thing for their allies in the media to repeat that message word for word so last night I spoke to kai risdall who told me explained about the supply chain, yes it's terrible that people want to get their stuff, but it's also an indicator that the economy is doing well, people he wants to buy things from you and that's supported so let's get to the part about hey the economy is great people can buy things again they are away from home and they want to buy gas. a little twist Well, it's a twist.
I'm just trying to make people feel good. We do not stand for credentials or expertise. Just because someone teaches at Harvard doesn't mean he's wise or even smart, but when he opens his segment on economics. Saying that I talked to a public radio host who does a show with the word economics in the title and here's what I learned: you're not trying very hard, especially when his conclusion is that inflation is a measure of our success, thank you that you can't afford to eat meat anymore you're doing your part for climate change things are going to change if this continues can you believe hey sean hannity here hey click here to subscribe to the fox news youtube page for our most interesting interviews and the most compelling analysis you'll ever see don't get it anywhere else
