Many critics warn that Capitol security could be endangered if Carlson airs security footage that details how the rioters accessed the building and the routes lawmakers used to flee to safety. “Kevin McCarthy has turned over the security of the Capitol to Tucker Carlson and that’s a scary thought,” he added. Gripping images and videos from the Capitol attack by Trump supporters have been widely circulated by documentarians, news organizations and even the rioters themselves. “I support Speaker McCarthy’s decision,” said Rep. Bryan Steil, R-Wis., the chairman of the House Administration Committee. But others said the two situations are not comparable — countless hours of footage have been released from many sources that captured what happened that deadly day.

Harold HutchisonFox News host Tucker Carlson blasted MSNBC hosts Joy Reid and Tiffany Cross Wednesday evening over “open racial hostility” expressed on their shows. “Given that opposing racism is America’s national religion, it may surprise you to learn that open race hate forms much of the substance of that channel’s programming. “It’s hard to believe that anything like that is happening right now on American television, but it is, out in the open,” Carlson continued. In fact, it’s the basis of violence, actual violence, actual violence.”“We could read excerpts from Tiffany Cross’ book, which are brimming with racial hostility. You get the point, and if you don’t believe it, tune into MSNBC,” Carlson said.5 months ago News Talk Florida

But now it’s okay, commendable even, to work with Democrats to elect a moderate speaker instead of working with his own party members? Another problem Bacon has isn’t that he’s willing to use his leverage to counter the “Never Kevin” members.2 months ago News Talk Florida
PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — NATO-led peacekeepers in Kosovo said Monday they were investigating a shooting incident in a tense northern region, urging calm after Serbia sent its army chief to the border area in response. The peacekeepers, known as KFOR, said the incident happened in close proximity of one of their patrols, involving unknown people. “It is important for all involved to avoid any rhetoric or actions that can cause tensions and escalate the situation,” KFOR said in a statement. Belgrade repeatedly has warned it would protect local Serbs “with all means” if they are attacked. Serbia has asked KFOR to deploy up to 1,000 of its troops in the Serb-populated north of Kosovo, to protect Kosovo Serbs from alleged harassment by ethnic Albanians, who are the majority in the country.3 months ago News Talk Florida
