The Biden administration’s intentional damage to America is so obvious it’s like a foreign enemy sits in the White House. Tucker Carlson knows.

Carlson: Just a quick recap on the never-changing rules of the world. The three things that any functioning country must have an ample supply of are food, water and energy. Those are the fundamental necessities of life— not diversity, equity and inclusion — food, water and energy.
If you have a surplus of food, water and energy, you win. If you don’t, you lose. Now, that may sound unfair, but we did not make the rules. Nature did. We can choose to ignore them, but those rules will never change. Sorry.
Thankfully for Americans, we live in a country that is remarkably abundant in all three of those things. The U.S. has the most fertile farmland in the world. We’ve got more potable, fresh water than virtually any other place and critically and rarest of all, America has the largest recoverable oil reserves on the planet. We are number one in that category and that matters maybe more than anything.
Now, they may be telling you on CNN that so-called renewable energy, windmills and solar panels, are about to power the world. But that’s absurd and no one corrects them and somebody should because a lot is at stake. If your nine-year-old starts telling you, “I’m like Superman,” you have to correct him before he jumps off the garage. The stakes are high, so it is incumbent on the rest of us to point out the people telling you that have no idea what they’re talking about. We are not remotely close to a green energy power grid or anything even approaching it.
In fact, as of today, the world is powered as it has long been by fossil fuels. Fossil fuels. That’s where more than 80% of global energy comes from, not from windmills and solar panels, from oil and gas and coal and that is not going to change soon. In fact, the world’s fastest growing economies, that would be India and China, are using more fossil fuels than ever, not less. So, why is every person in charge from the people who make the ads at Nike to the energy secretary, to the President of the United States, to every anchor on every channel on television telling you exactly the opposite? We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.
At best, they’re ignorant. They’re not engineers. They are politicians and ideologues. They’re the ones telling you that boys can become girls just by wishing it so, and they’ve commanded the rest of us to believe that, but unfortunately for them, the principles of social justice do not apply to power grids. You can’t just rename them and get something different. No. You have to create new and better power grids and we are nowhere near that and we will not be anywhere near that during the course of our lifetimes. Sorry, that’s reality, and you cannot yell loud enough to make it change. For the foreseeable future oil and gas are essential to civilization in an utterly non-negotiable way and that should be great news for America because here in the United States, we have a lot.
We are rich because we are rich in natural resources. That’s why we won the Second World War, for example. When previous generations said, as they often did, that God has blessed our country, this is what they were talking about. Yet suddenly, strangely, the United States is suddenly experiencing shortages of both food and energy and that’s why prices of these things have risen, because we don’t have enough of them…
This is not a mistake. It’s intentional. As if to make that as obvious as possible, over the weekend, Joe Biden’s communications staff tweeted this out under his name: “My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product and do it now.” What is it like nationalizing the gas stations?
So, he’s attacking small businesses in the United States. Running a gas station is not a profitable gig. It’s not like running Apple or being a private equity baron or doing any of the things that Joe Biden’s donors do. It’s not like being Nancy Pelosi who somehow got super rich. How did that happen? No, it’s a small business. So, he’s blaming them as he sells our national assets to our enemies. So, no one with a basic understanding of economics can pretend to justify what that tweet says. It’s just too stupid.
