Tucker Carlson: Biden’s working to defend Ukraine’s borders but not America’s

“It goes to a very fundamental principle of all nations, which is that our borders should be inviolate, that our sovereignty should be respected.”

Sounds very presidential, but those words did not come from President Joe Biden as it relates to America. That statement came from White House Deputy National Security Advisor Jonathan Finer Tuesday on CNN, and he was referring to Ukraine, not the U.S.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson began his Tuesday monologue on the network’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” by illustrating one of the many ironies that have become hypocritical staples of the Left, imbued with the smug satisfaction that they have a captive audience through legacy media.

Carlson began:

News Alert for you: Nancy Pelosi is even more agitated tonight than usual. On a conference call just hours ago, Pelosi demanded that her members vote immediately on a piece of legislation she says is critical to our national security. The bill she’s talking about, among other things, affirms the central importance of national borders.

Well, of course, it does. Without a border, you can’t have a country. And Nancy Pelosi firmly believes that. In fact, she believes it so strongly she’s directing the Biden administration to develop an urgent new plan to keep the border secure. In fact, not simply secure, but in the words of the new legislation, Section 208, inviolable, meaning impossible to breach. Walled up and buttoned-down. Bulletproof. That’s quite a border.

But why wouldn’t it be? When it comes to borders, Nancy Pelosi isn’t messing around. Are you surprised to hear this? Well, you may have misunderstood. Pelosi isn’t talking about the U.S. border, the one that’s currently open. She’s talking about the Ukrainian border, the one that actually matters.


As BPR reported in November, Carlson has not shied away from confronting U.S. leadership at all levels over their globalist admiration for nations like Ukraine as they routinely ignore American concerns.

Rich with justifiable sarcasm, Carlson described the folly perpetrated by those who hold power in America.

“As our oldest and most cherished ally yoked tightly to the American people by the ancient bonds of friendship, shared culture and Burisma, Ukraine comes first. It has to come first. When caravans of undocumented Russians appear on the Ukrainian border, the United States doesn’t sit idly by. The United States swoops in with deadly weapons to push these people back. We’ll send missiles to Ukraine if we have to. In fact, we already have — billions of dollars worth,” he said.

When asked by CNN’s Kate Bolduan if there was a ceiling to the U.S. troop commitment in the allied areas surrounding Ukraine, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby gave this reply:

Well, it’s what we’re talking about today is about 8,500 on heightened alert. But as I said yesterday, we’re certainly not going to rule out other options. Our job is to provide options to the president and the commander-in-chief, and we’re going to continue to do that. And so I would, I certainly would not rule out the possibility that we could be putting additional forces on heightened alert in the coming days and weeks, and maybe even moving troops around Europe. They’re already there, to bolster and to reassure some of our allies on the ground on the continent.


Carlson wasn’t having it, nor should anyone. He continued:

So you may be wondering, how does that commitment compare to what the Pentagon is willing to deploy to our southern border? Well, let’s see, a little back-of-the-envelope math here. It’s exactly 8,500 more because there are no troops, no American troops heading to our southern border.

That may seem distressing to you, but in a way it makes sense. Ukraine needs the troops. Ukraine hasn’t been invaded yet. We have been invaded, and we lost. We’ve been defeated. And like all vanquished nations, we’re being treated with humiliating contempt by world leaders, in this case, by our own leaders.

So just to restate, we’re allowing foreigners who came here illegally in violation of our laws, which are unenforced by our current government, which is undermining democracy by its refusal to enforce those laws, those people get to use their arrest warrants to get on airplanes while you have to show I.D. Meanwhile, again, you can’t say this enough, we’ll stop after this Congress is doing everything it can, pulling out all the stops to send more money to Eastern Europe to protect the borders of Ukraine. It’s like it’s not even real, but it is real.
