Within just a couple of hours after it officially kicked off, Tucker Carlson’s fresh show, “Tucker on Twitter,” drew a whopping 10 million eyeballs. This achievement has proven that established media channels like Fox News aren’t the only ways to spread significant, often overlooked news.

The aim of Tucker’s venture is straightforward: to expose government misinformation and the individuals constantly spouting it on TV and the internet.
One of the earliest topics he touched on was the Kakhovka dam situation in Ukraine, a crisis that Western media pins on Russian President Vladimir Putin. Tucker was quick to debunk this, explaining how the media tends to demonize Putin: “They say he’s a bad guy, and bad guys do bad things… even if it hurts them.”
According to Tucker, media outlets insist on this narrative because, logically, damaging the Kakhovka dam would be detrimental to Putin’s operations. The flood resulting from bombing the dam would, in fact, inundate the very roads his troops use for movement.
Tucker implies that either Ukraine itself orchestrated the incident or it was the handiwork of the United States and its global military allies. Either way, he strongly believes Putin wouldn’t sabotage his own interests.
Tucker wasn’t afraid to talk about topics that some people find controversial, like the “non-human intelligence crafts” being found. He says that Putin wouldn’t destroy the Kakhovka dam, which was built by the USSR in the 1950s and is now an important part of the conflict in Ukraine.
The dam, “nearly 100 feet tall and over 10,000 feet wide,” served as a hydroelectric power plant, giving birth to the Kakhovka Reservoir. The latter supplies water to Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, and the Crimean Peninsula.
Russia’s supposed involvement in destroying the dam doesn’t make sense because it harms their own operations. The dam held a large water reservoir connected to the Crimean Peninsula through a long canal, and this was important to Russia.
Tucker echoes this sentiment in his show’s debut episode, expressing disbelief that Putin, against all logic, would be responsible for the dam’s destruction.
Tucker’s show also featured a discussion on what he dubs the “bombshell of the millennium.” This bombshell relates to a government whistleblower’s revelation about the recovery of crafts designed by non-human intelligence by governments worldwide, part of a lengthy 80-year competition to reverse-engineer materials for geopolitical leverage.
In Tucker’s words, the lack of public access to this crucial information partly explains why our country seems so dysfunctional. He warns, “Dare to talk about something that really matters… you keep it up; they’ll make you be quiet… that’s how they maintain control.”
