Tucker’s First Twitter Episode Tackles the Damaged Ukrainian Dam, UFOs

Tucker’s First Twitter Episode Tackles the Damaged Ukrainian Dam, UFOs

“We’re told there are no gatekeepers here. If that turns out to be false, we’ll leave, but in the meantime we are grateful to be here.”

Tucker Carlson released the first episode of Tucker on Twitter, discussing the damaged Nova Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine and UFOs.

The media and the West immediately blamed Russia. Carlson said:

“Blowing up the dam may be bad for Ukraine, but it hurts Russia more. And for that reason, the Ukrainian government has considered destroying it,” Carlson said before referencing a December story in The Washington Post that described tests the Ukrainian military ran while considering knocking out the dam.

“When the facts start coming in, it becomes much less of a mystery what might have happened to the dam. Any fair person would conclude that the Ukrainians probably blew it up,” Carlson said.

BBC and The Telegraph are the only outlets I can think of that provided evidence of the possibility the dam collapsed naturally.

I thought neither side had a justifiable reason to destroy the dam. It is in Russian-occupied territory, so it’s important to Russia. Without the dam, Ukraine cannot access the southern regions and Crimea. Therefore, it hinders Kyiv from retaking the regions.

The Soviet Union built the dam, which is one of six along the Dnipro River.

Photos at The Telegraph and BBC show the dam deteriorating in the past week. I published them in my piece earlier today.

Ukraine uses the dam’s damage and destruction to persuade the world to do something. Russia claims the Ukrainians sabotaged it.

No one can confirm what happened. You all know Ukraine has been near and dear to me since 2014, but I don’t believe anyone.

I love that Tucker brought up UFOs. It is shocking that the media and others haven’t made a big deal about the news coming out about the government admitting to watching metallic orbs:

This is a typical example of the thing that we see most of,’ [Pentagon’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) director Sean] Kirkpatrick told NASA’s UAP panel. ‘We see these all over the world.’

‘And we see these making very interesting apparent maneuvers,’ Kirkpatrick added. ‘This one in particular, however, I would point out, demonstrated no enigmatic technical capabilities and was no threat to airborne safety.

‘Being able to come to some conclusion is going to take time,’ he said, ‘until we can get better resolved data on similar objects that we can then do a larger analysis on.’

I swear only Leslie and I are geeking out over the UFO reports.

Tucker promises to stay on Twitter if it remains free of gatekeepers:

“As of today, we have come to Twitter, which we hope will be the shortwave radio under the blankets. We’re told there are no gatekeepers here. If that turns out to be false, we’ll leave, but in the meantime we are grateful to be here.”

he seems to be saying out loud what I think and quietly whisper to those who agree with me.
(and now I feel like a conspiracy theorist – which, in the last two years, has come to mean “prescient,” but still holds a negative context

Twitter is absolutely *NOT* a free speech platform. I”ve been suspended for saying nothing false or violent, only facts and Twitter suspended by account. Twitter is a joke.

    mailman in reply to RickP. | June 7, 2023 at 8:09 am

    I’ve been banned from twitter after Occupy Democrats incited me to say something mean about someone.

    Of course it’s the 30 follower account that gets banned permanently for hateful incitement but not the millions of follower Democrat account that incited me to say mean things 🙄🙄

Tucker is very wrong on Ukraine.

Mary: OMG…I am so laughing out loud. Yes, it is true. My son is on his way to becoming a Star Fleet captain, aliens are real, and I am alive to experience it all. #MyBestLife

    The alien thing, really not necessary Tucker

      rwingjr in reply to gonzotx. | June 8, 2023 at 1:12 am

      I thought he was nuts when he started going after the UFOs a few years ago. I thought he was losing all credibility. But since then, it’s been verified by the government that the claims are true and being investigated, so I guess Tucker was ahead of us there. Then today I heard his comments about the alien, and again, I’m wondering if he’s fallen off the deep end, or if he really is ahead of us all. IDK

“No demonstration of enigmatic technical capabilities…”

Except it had no wings nor any apparent method of producing lift.
Except is had no obvious engine, having no intakes and no exhaust.
Except it had no obvious control surfaces.
Except it had no obvious means of propulsion (propellers or rocket/jet exhaust).

Other than that, it’s perfectly mundane, and just like one of our own aircraft. It’s just missing a few bits our aircraft need to fly, power, steer, and move them.

    Do you believe the pictures of Big Foot? The Loch Ness monster?

      rungrandpa in reply to Concise. | June 6, 2023 at 11:05 pm

      Bigfoot and Loch Ness monster haven’t been spotted and reported by 140 U.S. military pilots.

        Concise in reply to rungrandpa. | June 6, 2023 at 11:25 pm

        Unidentified objects that are in the air may have been spotted but that does not may the UFO extra-terrestrial . Never go full extra-terrestrial.

          The_Mew_Cat in reply to Concise. | June 7, 2023 at 4:13 pm

          I think the most plausible origin of UFOs is a pre-human civilization that was forced to leave the Earth surface long ago for some reason, so they moved to bases burrowed into the moon and under the ocean. Speculation – Maybe they are waiting for Antarctica to thaw so they can return and reclaim their land. They are probably hoping that we accelerate the process of thawing Antarctica.

I would rather hear about his Ray Epps show that got him cancelled, no doubt by Garland.

You’d think that with all these remnants of super advanced alien space craft we could actually build, oh I don’t know, some decent space craft that doesn’t explode after launch?

    Those secretly developed air vehicles are flying out of Groom Lake (Area 51) and an unacknoledge area in Utah. The Starship is just a cover.

      Concise in reply to BillB52. | June 6, 2023 at 11:26 pm

      I’d hate to be the poor schmuck who gets volunteered for the transporter test.

        henrybowman in reply to Concise. | June 7, 2023 at 4:22 pm

        “It has never been successfully tested… Theoretically, the mechanism is fully operational. However, it was built to accommodate your anatomy, not ours.”

    jb4 in reply to Concise. | June 6, 2023 at 11:40 pm

    While I find the concept of other life far more advanced than our own credible, what is very odd is the lack of major technological advances based on reverse engineering of whatever we supposedly found – unique materials, propulsion systems, energy system, etc.

    Incidentally, I always thought the supposed alien ship crash in Roswell, NM in 1947 was credible. If we have been monitored for thousands of years as a primitive society, when would that change to more active surveillance. It would logically be after the explosion of nuclear weapons, first done in 1945. Sensors in space by an advanced civilization would surely have detected that.

      docduracoat in reply to jb4. | June 7, 2023 at 7:46 am

      Supposedly both velcro and night vision goggles are technology from the Roswell crash.

        inspectorudy in reply to docduracoat. | June 7, 2023 at 2:53 pm

        If you Google velcro you will see who invented it and he isn’t an alien. I have a bush in my yard that I call the velcro bush because it works just like velcro and it is natural.

      gonzotx in reply to jb4. | June 7, 2023 at 10:27 am


      The_Mew_Cat in reply to jb4. | June 7, 2023 at 4:19 pm

      Reverse engineering super advanced stuff might be nearly impossible. Even if we could figure out what a component does and how it works, we may not have the manufacturing techniques available to actually make it. The technology might require understandings of physics that are currently unknown. And if you add in high levels of secrecy, such efforts will go veeeerrry slooow. Very few people will have access, and channels of information will be very siloed. The dilemma is reverse engineering is probably possible if done out in the open, so millions of minds can contribute to the effort, but that would prevent any country from having exclusive leaps of technology, and even worse, foreign scientists might beat us.

That’s because everyone else knows it’s not aliens, it was never aliens, and it’s never going to be aliens.


And one more time: Star Trek was 1960’s Democrat propaganda disguised as a kids’ SF show. It wasn’t science, space doesn’t work like that, and aliens aren’t humans with lumpy latex on their foreheads.

    Paul in reply to daniel_ream. | June 7, 2023 at 8:35 am

    I’m confused by your comment. Are you saying that you interpret the Drake Equation as being incontrovertible proof that aliens don’t exist, never existed and will never exist?

    And regarding Star Trek, sure it was Dim propaganda… virtually everything coming out of Hollywood always has been. But they did predict a number of things we consider ‘every day items’ today such as handheld computers (smart phones/tablets), virtual reality, and 3D printers.

      Are you saying that you interpret the Drake Equation as being incontrovertible proof that aliens don’t exist, never existed and will never exist?

      No, that’s not what I said, you know that’s not what I said, and I know you know that’s not what I said.

      But they did predict a number of things we consider ‘every day items’ today such as handheld computers (smart phones/tablets), virtual reality, and 3D printers.

      It may surprise you to learn that Star Trek was not the first to “predict” any of those things. Star Trek writers, generally having some background in the hard sciences, would work recent real-world technological advances into the scripts. “Transparent aluminum” and SLA printing were patented years before they showed up in Star Trek scripts. And William Gibson would like a word about the “virtual reality” thing.

        Paul in reply to daniel_ream. | June 7, 2023 at 3:42 pm

        Well, like I wrote, “I’m confused by your comment.” You wrote:

        “That’s because everyone else knows it’s not aliens, it was never aliens, and it’s never going to be aliens.


        How else should I interpret that, other than to think that your first sentence is supported by the second (and third)?

henrybowman | June 7, 2023 at 2:52 am

“I swear only Leslie and I are geeking out over the UFO reports.”
That’s because they could have released this shit any time they wanted in the past 50 years. They release it now only to mask the stench of desperate panic.

UFOs. It’s the Kanamits. They’re coming to help us.

Ukraine has been near and dear to my family since 1896 when our family’s ancestors fled the deadly antisemitic pogroms. We don’t need the NYT or anyone else’s reports of mythical unicorn Nazis in Ukraine to validate the fact that our motherland ranks up there with history’s worst matriarchs. Yes, we love Ukraine – in the rear view mirror and shrinking quickly.

    CommoChief in reply to WestRock. | June 7, 2023 at 11:22 am

    Mythical? Nah there are some nazi sympathizers. Not even close to everyone and certainly not everyone in leadership but there are more than a handful.

    Here’s the problem for the lefty media. If using a symbol which has been declared ‘bad’ equates to adoption of the worst case ideology associated with the symbol (which is the established position of media/thought leaders that they won’t shut up about) then that’s all the proof needed.

    It’s the same thing as Billy Bob deciding to fly the Stars and Bars on Confederate Memorial Day to honor his triple great grandpa. Whatever his intentions Billy Bob has used a ‘bad’ symbol and is now guilty by association with the worst aspects of the symbol. That’s the lefty, media rule which they incessantly remind us of. Now they have to ever so grudgingly apply the rule to their new favorite thing; Ukraine.

E Howard Hunt | June 7, 2023 at 7:45 am

The UFO craze started in the late 40s, when one was lucky to have a camera about. Now with billions of cell phone cameras, not one convincing photo. We are supposed to believe beings that can curve spacetime crash in the desert. Tucker has actually fallen into the government’s peekaboo toil. He is an emotional entertainer with a conservative penchant.

The Gentle Grizzly | June 7, 2023 at 8:00 am

Has anyone gone through the various prop rental shops in Hollywood to see if Ed Wood ever returned those hub-caps he used in “Plan 9”?

Tucker argues by sarcasm, which is the trope of teenagers and women. “Something is wrong and you have to figure out what it is.”

Just say what it is. It’s sort of a lit. crit. skill though.

    Paul in reply to rhhardin. | June 7, 2023 at 10:58 am

    “… the trope of teenagers and women?”

    boy, howdy, that’s a doozy

      rhhardin in reply to Paul. | June 7, 2023 at 1:36 pm

      It’s not woke but it’s not controversial. Something’s wrong and even she doesn’t know what it is, so it’s your job to figure it out. That fits the sarcasm genre so well that sarcasm is used to convey it.

      For teens it’s just being clever by saying the opposite of what you mean, implying a deep interior existence against superficial Salinger reality.

veritas1776 | June 7, 2023 at 12:19 pm

The biggest story is that Tucker Carlson’s 10 minute segment has >75 MILLION views so far and counting. Last night, Fox had 1.2million viewers and CNN only 800k (not sure views and viewers are exactly the same). If this continues, network TV news has been supplanted. We are watching a media revolution in real time and it is streamed not televised!

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to veritas1776. | June 7, 2023 at 4:22 pm

    Only if that feat is repeated every week, or at whatever interval he makes his broadcasts. Check back in a year.

      CommoChief in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | June 7, 2023 at 7:07 pm

      Not quite. He averaged about 3 million viewers on Fox. So 55 million is well above the level at Fox. If he does 10% of the first night’s viewer draw that 5.5 million exceeds his prior average including all forms of viewers by a substantial amount.

      Content creators can reach lots of people on Twitter.
      organically v algorithm. As they scale up to meet demand the benefit of using Twitter for content creators to garner exposure and ad revenue without dealing with woke YouTube policies that demonetize content will be hard to resist.

        CommoChief in reply to CommoChief. | June 8, 2023 at 4:05 pm

        Now over 95 million views. That’s a hell of difference in audience size and eventually advertisers will take note.

inspectorudy | June 7, 2023 at 2:57 pm

Two things. One, the number one takeaway from Tucker’s talk on this forum is about UFOs and not the real issue, Ukraine, and two, it doesn’t matter what we think about UFOs. If they exist there is nothing we can do about it. If they don’t exist there is nothing we can do about it.

Tucker gave some convincing arguments that Ukraine was behind the explosion at the dam, however it was mostly based on Ukraine benefiting from it.

Coincidentally, Russia also benefits from it. The damage will hamper the upcoming move of Ukrainian troops in the area. I am sure Ukraine would have preferred to capture the dam and used to to move troops east.

Things are not always so clear as they first appear in the fog of war. — Did I just make that up or just remember something I read or heard long ago?
