When I looked last this had had in excess of 90 million views on Twitter
Tucker Carlson unveiled Episode 1 of his ‘Tucker on Twitter’ adventure – which gained 10 million views in just over two hours – and the topic du jour is simple; government propaganda and the lying liars that spew it.
His jumping off point is the bombing of the Kakhova dam… by Putin himself, if you believe the western media because ‘he is evil and evil people do evil things… even to themselves’ (despite the detailed explanation below of why that is simply farcical).
By way of background, and helping explain why it absolutely, positively, without doubt must have been Putin that blew up the dam </sarc> Antiwar.com’s Kyle Anzalone notes that the dam was built by the USSR during the 1950s and, for over a year, has sat on the frontlines of the war in Ukraine. It is nearly 100 feet tall and over 10,000 feet wide. The dam was constructed as a hydroelectric power plant and created the Kakhovka Reservoir, which is over 2,000 sq km. Europe’s largest nuclear power plant – the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) and the Crimean Peninsula receive water from the reservoir.
The attack on the dam will impact a core Russian concern in Ukraine. Through the 250-mile-long Northern Crimean Canal, the Kakhovka Reservoir feeds water to the peninsula that Moscow annexed in 2014. Before the invasion of Ukraine, the Kremlin regularly issued demands to Kiev that irrigation systems supplying water to Crimea remain open.
But you should believe it was Putin, as Carlson explains:
“You’ve got to be lied to over a period of years to reach conclusions like that…and of course, we have been…”
Carlson then took the media to task for ignoring yesterday’s “bombshell of the millennium,’ in which a government whistleblower revealed that craft developed by non-human intelligence has been recovered by governments around the world in an 80-year race to reverse engineer materials for geopolitical advantages.
Carlson’s concluding thoughts are a good reminder of reality:
“…if you are wondering why our country seems so dysfunctional, this is a big part of the reason – nobody knows what’s happening. A small group of people control access to all relevant information and the rest of us… don’t know. We’re allowed to yap all we like about something like racism… but dare to talk about something that really matters and go ahead and see what happens... you keep it up, they’ll make you be quiet – trust us… that’s how they maintain control.“

Elon Musk chimed in on Tucker’s episode as well, tweeting “Would be great to have shows from all parts of the political spectrum on this platform!”

Of course, propagandists like Brian Stelter would never take the risk, lest they crash and burn in spectacular fashion.
Tucker Carlson’s first Twitter broadcast went mega-viral Tuesday night, racking up 71.6 million views in less than 24 hours….
It would take a pretty crooked judge to go against Tucker’s first amendment rights, but there are plenty of them
Carlson’s attorney Bryan Freedman told the outlet that the network’s efforts to halt his Twitter show would brush up against his First Amendment rights
Fox News has informed attorneys for former network personality Tucker Carlson that he breached his contract with the network by launching his own show on Twitter.
“This evening we were made aware of Mr. Tucker Carlson’s appearance on Twitter in a video that lasted over 10 minutes,” reads the letter, which Axios obtained. “Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Mr. Carlson’s ‘services shall be completely exclusive to Fox.'”
The letter quotes the former host’s contract, which says he is “prohibited from rendering services of any type whatsoever, whether ‘over the internet via streaming or similar distribution, or other digital distribution whether now known or hereafter devised.'”
The network parted ways with Carlson earlier this year in the aftermath of a $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems, which had sued the network for defamation.
Carlson on Tuesday posted the first episode of his Twitter show to the social media platform. The roughly 10-minute clip mostly focused on the recent destruction of the Nova Kakhova dam in Southern Ukraine, which Carlson suggested was likely the result of a Ukrainian operation.
The letter sets up a likely legal battle between the parties. Carlson’s attorney Bryan Freedman told the outlet that the network’s efforts to halt his Twitter show would brush up against his First Amendment rights.
“Fox defends its very existence on freedom of speech grounds. Now they want to take Tucker Carlson’s right to speak freely away from him because he took to social media to share his thoughts on current events,” Freedman said.
