The Draft Tucker PAC launched its first campaign ad urging the party to pick the news anchor, who doesn?t want the job

A political action campaign calling itself Draft Tucker PAC released a campaign ad on Thursday urging the Republican Party to pick former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson as its candidate for President of the US in 2024.

"Republicans need a new leader, and Tucker Carlson is ready to lead," the 30-second spot boasts, describing the conservative pundit as "witty, sharp and [someone who] mocks woke nonsense." Carlson "will whip Biden in a debate," the commercial assures voters, insisting "no one in America is more articulate."

Led by former Texas congressional candidate and Republican donor Chris Ekstrom, the Draft Tucker PAC, which filed its papers last month after Carlson was let go from Fox News, still has to convince its eponymous candidate to run. The ad urges viewers to sign its petition to draft the right-wing commentator.

Ekstrom told The Hill he was concerned neither the Republican frontrunner, former president Donald Trump, nor Trump's leading challenger, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, is pushing the conversation in the right direction. "I'm very concerned that they're going to not move the debate as far right as it ought to be," he told the outlet, without explaining where the declared candidates fell short in their positions on the issues.

Describing the PAC as "exceptionally well-funded," Ekstrom explained it will sponsor polls and release more ads on radio and digital as well as TV, while populating its board with "major conservatives." He claimed Carlson had been "testing the water for quite a while" regarding the appetite for a presidential candidacy.

Earlier this month, Carlson joked about running for president in text messages with a reporter, something he has done several times before. However, he has dismissed the idea when asked about it seriously, telling former New York Times journalist Ben Smith last year that he was content working as a "talk show host" and had no desire for power.

While the media establishment have made clear they believe a Carlson candidacy would fail, they also won't stop talking about it, with some half-dozen articles emerging since the journalist left Fox discussing his chances at the White House.

Carlson's primetime news show far outstripped its competitors in ratings, bringing in over 3 million viewers nightly. The video he released on Twitter following his departure has pulled in over 84 million views. Earlier this month, he announced plans to launch a news show on the platform.

Poster Comment:

DeSantis took money from Soros. Trump and DeSantis are rabid Zionists. And Trump has never apologized for the clot shots and the lockdowns. I will vote for Tucker if he is on the ballot. Otherwise I vote for RFK Jr in the open primary.

RFK Jr knows the reason his Uncle and father were killed.

But the JFK murder was finally pinned on LBJ.

Jack Ruby replied to a reporter who asked, "Jack, how could this have happened?"

Ruby replied, "If Adlai Stephenson were Vice President this never would have happened.' ;)

This is the attack of the fearful pillaging RINOs. They and the Deep State murderers and thieves are running scared. While I do not agree with President Trump on every issue the Deep State must be outed and removed. He knows that and will do that job which is why they fear him.

That is why they murdered the Kennedys, MLK, and every prominent Jew who was not a Zionazi.

That is one of the reasons Sherman Skolnick opposed them.

You know about Sherman Skolnick?

That tells me you are from Chicago, as am I.

BTW, the Deep State are all those government employees that are working toward their retirement. And they fear most anyone that would take that from them. ;)

"Of course, Behaviorism 'works.' So does torture. Give me a no-nonsense, down-to-earth behaviorist, a few drugs, and simple electrical appliances, and in six months I will have him reciting the Athanasian Creed in public." W. H. Auden

"The second item in the liberal creed, after self-righteousness, is unaccountability. Liberals have invented whole college majors--psychology, sociology, women's studies--to prove that nothing is anybody's fault. No one is fond of taking responsibility for his actions, but consider how much you'd have to hate free will to come up with a political platform that advocates killing unborn babies but not convicted murderers. A callous pragmatist might favor abortion and capital punishment. A devout Christian would sanction neither. But it takes years of therapy to arrive at the liberal view." ~ P. J. O'Rourke

"Liberalism is just Communism sold by the drink." ~ P. J. O'Rourke

"The collegiate idealists who fill the ranks of the environmental movement seem willing to do absolutely anything to save the biosphere, except take science courses and learn something about it." ~ P. J. O'Rourke

"You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him." ~ Robert A. Heinlein

Below is a data page which contains a lot of Sherman's work. I particularly like his "Middle Finger News". He, like many others, was a Patriot and risked his life every day to uncover the truth and explain to others how they were being used and abused.

Well, those treasonous swine of the Deep State CIA are about to become candidates for Madame La Guillotine or the Hangman. I find it sad that we have come to this, but justice must be done and the ship of state righted.

All the way up to his death he was a regular on Jeff Rense's program. And while I do not agree with Jeff on a few things I do agree that our government is corrupt. And Sherman demonstrated a lot of truths on his program.
