Tucker Carlson Blasts Frank Luntz and Kevin McCarthy For Self-Dealing

A few years ago, someone tipped me that Frank Luntz -- the "Republican" messaging guru -- was now all-in on propagandizing for leftwing notions about "global warming."

Last Friday, Tucker Carlson ripped Frank Luntz for both serving as an advisor to leftwing corporations that routinely act against conservatives' interests, and as an advisor to conservatives (or at least Republicans).

And whose advice to Republicans is almost always a variation of "Accept the demands of the leftwing establishment and the leftwing corporate oligarchy."

Of course Luntz propagandized in favor of OxyContin -- because all of the Grifter Pseudoright was taking money to shill for opioid pushers.

"Tucker Carlson Tonight" explores how the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) was paid to publish pro-oxycontin stories for Purdue Pharmaceuticals, leading in part to the massive public health crisis regarding opioids.

Say, an awful lot of "conservatives" on the Grifter Right are AEI "fellows," aren't they...?

Interestingly, Frank Luntz, a corporate liberal, is known to be close friends with Kevin McCarthy, a California cvck who routinely sells out to the left.

Last night Carlson updated his reporting to note that McCarthy is more than a "close friend" to Luntz -- he's Luntz's roommate.

After first denying that McCarthy has been living in Luntz's luxe penthouse apartment complex (more on that below), McCarthy's spokeswoman later told Carlson that yes, McCarthy does live in a room provided by Luntz, but pays "fair market value."

No evidence was provided to prove that he pays "fair market value," though it would be easy to provide cancelled checks to show how much rent he's paying.

Now, if Kevin McCarthy is underpaying for his rent, then he's in violation of ethics rules, which forbid Congressmen from accepting favors or gifts, which include transactions on terms favorable to the Congressmen.

Especially from interested parties -- which is a description of the corporate lobbyist Frank Luntz.

Do we know that Kevin McCarthy is paying sub-market rent and therefore accepting illegal gifts from Luntz?

No, we don't know that.

But given that Luntz's apartment is lavish and expensive, it's hard to imagine McCarthy is paying full freight.

Because Luntz doesn't live in just any apartment -- or an apartment, singular. He lives in one of the most expensive buildings in the DC area.

And he doesn't live in one apartment. He bought four apartments and connected them all to make one luxe 7000 square foot ultrasuite.

And Kevin McCarthy -- Luntz's pal -- presumably has almost full access to the whole place, and isn't just locked in his one bedroom. Luntz's place is of course not set up to have separate private rooms like an actual hotel is.'

So what is McCarthy paying in rent? And how does he know he's paying "fair market value"?

It's time to cut these corrupt corporate liberals out of the party. We have no choice. We cannot continue just praying the cancer we're infected with "gets better" on its own.

Note that the leftwing grifters -- such as this publisher of the grifter zine The Bulwark -- are all-in on defending Luntz:

Which should tell you something about Luntz, and his real role in the Republican Party.
