TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): It's hard to remember a betrayal at this scale. And yes, we have been here before, by the way. We've been in conflicts with Russia for a long time. The United States traded with the Russians through the height of the Cold War when the Soviet Union and the United States had nuclear weapons pointed right at each other, and we worried one might go off. We traded with Joseph Stalin in the middle of his terror, at the very moment he was murdering four million — yes, Ukrainians. That happened. And then we armed Stalin. We armed the Soviet army as he was killing Ukrainians. And The New York Times endorsed all of it. 

But now, because Putin invaded Ukraine — effectively encouraged by the Biden administration to do that, which is true — because that happened, we are going to send billions of dollars to the Saudi theocracy and then to the Iranians and to Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela. And at the same time, we're going to embrace green energy which means giving the government of China complete control over our power grid here in America.

That's our plan. Are you confused by it? Don't be. It's a moral victory. Let us know when you get tired of winning.
