Fox News host Tucker Carlson bluntly stated on Monday that the United States is formally at war with Russia whether Congress has officially declared it or not and he contends that members from both sides of the political aisle want it and have for some time.

“Yesterday morning, Joe Biden’s secretary of state, a man called Tony Blinken, went on to the Sunday show over at CBS News to announce a new policy toward Russia. Going forward, Blinken explained, the Biden administration will use Poland as a cutout to send fighter jets to the government of Ukraine. Those jets will be used to fight the Russian military. Blinken announced this in a calm, even tone that suggested this was conventional procedure, business as usual, nothing to worry about, just another weekend at the State Department. But in fact, it’s not typical,” Carlson stated and then noted that sending fighter jets into a conflict is definitely an escalation.

“It’s a remarkable exchange. What are we watching here, apart from a conversation between two incredibly shallow people who have limited contact with reality? What we’re watching is the beginning of a war between the United States and Russia. If that sounds jarring, what else would you call it? Now you may support everything that Tony Blinken just said. Maybe you do support it, but let’s not lie about what’s happening. Let’s be as honest and clear-eyed as we can be, especially now, because it matters,” he said.

“The Biden administration just inserted itself with force into the middle of a hot war between two foreign powers. That means the United States is now an active participant in a war. We are at war with Russia. Whether or not that war has been officially declared, whether or not Congress has authorized that war, all of that is irrelevant. That war is happening right now as we watch,” Carlson declared.

He went on to lay the groundwork showing that the Biden administration was prepping for this all along.

“With Russian troops amassed by the thousands on the Ukrainian border, Joe Biden sent Kamala Harris, the least capable diplomat in Washington, to explain America’s policy to European heads of state. At a public press event at the Munich Security Conference, Kamala Harris encouraged Ukraine to become a member of NATO. ‘I appreciate and admire President Zelenskyy’s desire to join NATO.’ Message: Up yours, Vladimir Putin, go ahead and invade Ukraine. And of course, Vladimir Putin did that just days later,” Carlson explained.

“So, the invasion was no surprise to the Biden administration. They knew that would happen. That was the point of the exercise. We watched all this happen. We missed it. How? Honestly, because it was insane and therefore very hard to take seriously. Why in the world would the United States intentionally seek war with Russia? How could we possibly benefit from that war? We still don’t know the answer to that question, but it is obvious that permanent Washington has been fixated on war with Russia for a very long time,” Carlson asserted.

“So, where’s this going? That’s the question for the rest of us who had no role in making these decisions. Well, it’s worrisome. You should keep in mind that the U.S. government is currently run by the same people who planned the Afghanistan withdrawal, the ones who tanked the U.S. dollar, the people who run Baltimore, the ones who tried to send crack pipes to junkies, these are people with a long history of destroying things and no history at all of building anything. So, a lot could go wrong,” he astutely pointed out.

“They tell us that Vladimir Putin is unbalanced. We’ll take that at face value. We know that Putin has thousands of nuclear weapons. Putin has said that if he is pushed, he will use nuclear weapons. It could be wise to believe him,” the conservative host noted.

“That war has just erupted. The fact that no one in charge seems to worry about where this could go should concern you quite a bit, but nuclear war is not the only risk. The economic consequences of this war are already profound. They’re history-changing, actually and if you don’t believe it, check out commodity prices. They’re out of control. Wheat is up nearly 60% over last year. That’s the highest price ever recorded for wheat. It’s not good news if you plan to eat and it won’t get better. Russia is one of the largest fertilizer producers in the world. So, for example, a ton of Urea fertilizer that cost American farmers $265 per ton last January now goes for $846 this year. And thanks to sanctions, that number will get much higher. No one who farms has ever seen anything like this. You probably don’t farm, but you do buy groceries. It’ll be obvious to you soon,” Carlson warned.

“In fact, thanks to Biden’s foreign policy, everything you buy is shooting up in price and shockingly fast. Gasoline is now higher than it’s ever been in the history of gasoline. In Los Angeles, it is selling for $7.29 a gallon. So if you make under $100,000 a year and most people in this country do, that qualifies as a crisis for you, but for the people in charge, it’s not high enough. They’d like to make it worse. Their latest idea, that a lot of people seem to be buying, is that we have a moral obligation somehow to stop buying Russian oil. It’s tainted,” he remarked.

“OK. What would happen if we did that? Well, needless to say, oil prices would jump likely to over a $150 a barrel, even higher prices for you, but then if that boycott spread and moral boycotts tend to and Europe joined it, buckle your seatbelt,” he predicted.

“To repeat, in order to wage a moral boycott, we become more dependent on Saudi Arabia, governed by Sharia law; Iran, a rogue state; and Maduro’s Venezuela because this is a moral statement we’re making. This is a moral victory so feel good about it as you go bankrupt. That’s the short-term picture. The long-term picture of war with Russia is even scarier than that,” the Fox News host continued.

“Thanks to Biden’s policies, Russia and China now form a bloc against the United States. This was the nightmare scenario, now it’s real. Just today, the Chinese foreign minister described Vladimir Putin as China’s ‘most important strategic partner.’ So are we going to see a boycott of Chinese goods in the United States? They’re making this war possible. Oh, don’t bet on it, that would be racist,” Carlson reported, getting to the heart of the matter.

“But we should prepare to lose our position as holder of the world’s reserve currency. That is happening in slow motion. It’s unmistakable. Now the Biden people seem to have no idea this is going on, or maybe they want it to happen. Joe Biden was up there at the State of the Union bragging about how he took 30 points off the Russian ruble in a single day. Hurray! Good for us, but once we stop celebrating our win, the destruction of the Russian economy, they deserve it, you got to wonder, is there a downside to this? Could it be a pyrrhic victory? Let’s see. These policies have driven Russia, China, India, Turkey, and other countries to accelerate their flight from the U.S. dollar,” he added.

“Now, to be clear, that’s the majority of the global economy. This may be the most reckless and destructive thing any American president has ever done to the United States. If the war in Ukraine ended tomorrow, we would live with the consequences of that loss of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency for the rest of our lives,” Carlson continued.

“Now, Republicans in Washington, to their eternal shame, have no problem with any of this. In fact, many of them are more for war with Russia than Joe Biden seems to be. That is a disgrace. It will hurt them in the midterms,” he concluded.
