Tucker rips elites who mistake themselves for God, 'a recipe for total destruction'

Published in Blog on July 17, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

After spending 35 years in Washington, Tucker Carlson knows better than to trust politicians on either side of the aisle. 

There are greater forces, like the power of God, than flawed humans who control the political arena and think they can control the world.

"I don't fall for politicians, I get who they are," Tucker said to thousands of young adults at the Turing Point USA event over the weekend. Tucker gave sound advice on believing in something greater than ourselves and more importantly, greater than politicians who think they are God. 

Describing the D.C. climate, he said it's all about paying people off. But the transparency of this operation became overtly clear when the Biden administration openly offered to pay Americans off through the student loan forgiveness plan. At least it made sense, Tucker said of the effort, which was recently struck down by the Supreme Court.

"We will pay you to vote for us. Okay, I get that. That's not complicated. That's just corrupt," Tucker quipped. "Very few [politicians] have happy personal lives, children who respect them, spouses who love them."

The destruction of America, as we see it today, goes back to one main issue: hubris. In all of human history, people have consistently believed in a power higher than themselves – until now. 

"God is central to our understanding of justice and your understanding of government, and has been since people emerged from the caves and probably before," he said.

But in today's age, egotistical leaders think they can rule the world. They have made it clear that they want to control life, human existence, the planet, gender and so much more. 

But that's not true. The reality is, God is above all else.

"In place of that has been the option, which is leaders who believe they are God. And the problem with believing you're God is you're not. You're not, and you can't be," Tucker declared. "Having people who don't believe in God – acknowledge authority above themselves – isn't just bad, it's a recipe for total destruction."

It's an offense against reality and truth, Tucker stated to a cheering crowd.

In his closing remarks, Tucker offered an important reminder: suffering causes growth. No matter what we struggle through personally or as a nation, we certainly will learn and better ourselves through the trials.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
