(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Retired U.S. Army Col. Douglas Macgregor sat down for an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson — who is thriving on his own, which must make his former employer furious — where he had an honest, up-front conversation about the mainstream media narrative concerning the war going on in Ukraine, explaining why it is his belief that it’s a “terrible tragedy” that “should be ended.”
“The latest episode of ‘Tucker on Twitter’ was posted to X Monday and cut right through the propaganda with some eye-opening figures for the colonel. First, Carlson reminded viewers how “Pretty much everything that NBC News and The New York Times have told you about the war in Ukraine is a lie,'” Kevin Haggerty’s BizPac Review report noted.
“‘The Russian army is incompetent,’ they claim. ‘Ukraine is a democracy.’ ‘Vladimir Putin is Hitler, and he’s trying to take over the world.’ ‘Thankfully, the Ukrainians are winning,’” he said during his short and sweet monologue for episode 18.
“None of that is true. Every claim is false,” Carlson asserted outright. “The last one, especially.”

“The Ukrainian Army is not winning.” he added, “In fact, it’s losing badly. Ukraine is being destroyed. Its population is being slaughtered in lopsided battles with a technologically superior enemy or scattered by the millions to the rest of the globe as refugees. Ukraine is running out of soldiers.”
“As that happens, the question will inevitably arise, who’s gonna replace them? If the Ukrainians can’t beat Putin, who will? The answer, of course, will be us. American troops will fight the Russian army in Eastern Europe. That’s most likely. And the assumption is we’ll win. But will we win?” the former Fox News host asked before bringing in Macgregor.
Not surprisingly, the colonel immediately pushed back against our government’s costly support of Ukraine’s military by stating that even with our aid they have been getting decimated by Russian forces.
“I think all of the lies that have been told for more than a year-and-a-half about the Ukrainians are winning; the Ukrainian cause is just; the Russians are evil; the Russians are incompetent; all of that is collapsing, and it’s collapsing because what’s happening on the battlefield is horrific,” Macgregor told Carlson.
He then remarked that a total of at least 40,000 Ukrainian men had died over the course of the last month, which brings the overall total to 400,000 since the invasion by Russia started in Feb. 2022.
“We don’t even know how many people have been wounded, but we know probably upwards of 40- to 50,000 soldiers are amputees,” he stated during the interview. “We know the hospitals are full,” he then pointed out that “Ukrainian units at the platoon and company level,” measuring from 50 to 200 men at a time, have been giving up to the Russians for the sake of the wounded “because they can’t fight anymore.”
“All of this happens in a way that is just not reported in the West. And in the meantime, rather than admit that this is a terrible tragedy that should be ended, on humanitarian grounds if no other, that the killing should stop — as President Trump said ‘Stop the killing,’ we’re gonna continue,” Macgregor commented during the show. “And this puts the Russians in the unhappy position of marching further west.”
Later, it was suggested that Russian forces had not been properly prepared at the start of the conflict with Ukraine, but they have since built a force of 750,000 troops that could potentially reach numbers north of 1.2 million over the next 12 months.
The colonel then took an opportunity to launch an attack on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy “and the radicals around him” who’ve “basically committed to fighting this war to the last Ukrainian. And of course, I’m sure that Mr. Zelenskyy and friends are anxious at some point to retire to their estates in Florida, or Venice or Cyprus to collect on the billions that they’ve managed to steal or siphon from all the aid that we’ve provided. Remember, Ukraine is probably one of the most corrupt places in the world.”
Let’s face the facts. There are no “good guys” in this scenario. You don’t have to pick a side and root for one over the other. Ukraine is corrupt. So is Russia. It’s not an either/or, it’s a both/and. We shouldn’t necessarily have a horse in this race. Thus, we shouldn’t be financially supporting either country in the conflict. It’s that simple.
The real losers here are the folks under the leadership of both regimes.
