After seeing China Professor speak about the threat of Trump, what do you think?


I think that Trump with some of the bad things about him and the good things about him is what kept the radical left/bad liberalism from completely taking over and keeping communism/socialism from being brought to the U.S. With the first part of this video, Trump is also keeping China from doing what they want and some people in the U.S. from using their freedom to sell out the U.S. in order to get access to China's money more than they already have.

I think some people dislike/hateTrump so much that they are blind to the threat he is protecting the U.S. from.

Not going watch 45 minutes of Tucker Carlson just to participate in your thread; sorry JJ.

Can you either summarize, or tell us where in the video the relevant parts are?

Would you rather watch your idiot Biden mispronounce names and babble?
he said Health and Education Services. There is no such Department



He is popular for cheating.

From about :20 to 8:00.

The Professor appears to say since they couldn't do anything about Trump they couldn't get their way but with Biden they have leverage.

Thanks for that, JJ.

I watched up to 6:15, and had to stop. There was way-too much editorializing being done by Carlson; taking 15-20 seconds of the professor speaking out of context, and making assumptions that were just crazy.

Wall Street was "infuriated" by Trump's election? Not a chance, and the professor said nothing like this.

China had "agents" at the "highest levels" of the US government? There's no serious evidence of this, though it's reasonable to think there might be a few agents here and there - though doubtfully at the "highest levels".

China used Wall Street to "control" the US government / policies? Not bloody-well likely. Wall Street certainly has influence on US policy, but that's because everyone wants to see Wall Street making lots of money. Big business has the same kind of influence, and while some people dislike the amount of influence it has, this is just part of the normal process of capitalism. Money will ALWAYS have influence, ad it is not BY DEFAULT nefarious.

Is China a major threat to American (military, economic) power? Absolutely, and I don't think there's a smart person who disagrees. Beyond that, this economics professor was being used by Carlson to craft a ridiculous narrative. Fox itself has said that no one should watch his show and take it as serious news. You shouldn't either.

Something wrong.

Fox News won a court case by 'persuasively' arguing that no 'reasonable viewer' takes Tucker Carlson seriously​

  • A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit against Fox News after lawyers for the network argued that no "reasonable viewer" would take the network's primetime star Tucker Carlson seriously.
  • The former Playboy model Karen McDougal filed a defamation suit against Fox alleging that Carlson slandered her during a December 2018 episode of his show, "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
  • The network asked a judge to dismiss the case, arguing that "Carlson's statements were not statements of fact and that she failed adequately to allege actual malice."
  • The judge agreed with Fox's premise, adding that the network "persuasively argues" that "given Mr. Carlson's reputation, any reasonable viewer 'arrive with an appropriate amount of skepticism' about the statements he makes."

I bet you can find thousands of American professors who say Trump is a Fascist.
