Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky for recently bragging about having the “attention” and “cooperation” of international financial titans even as the U.S. banking industry struggles to remain solvent.
Carlson questioned why corporate media has failed to be critical of financial institutions, even as the U.S. banking system is under its greatest strain since the financial crisis of 2008.
“As banks are collapsing, no one in media is anxious to criticize banks. Almost no matter what they do, it doesn’t matter what they do. Even if they were to, just pulling this out of thin air, openly profiteer from a war in Eastern Europe that’s killing hundreds of thousands of people,” Carlson said.
“Oh, it turns out they are,” he added. “And we know that because Zelensky, the President of Ukraine, and a very close friend of banks and BlackRock, is bragging about it.”
The Fox News host then played a clip of Zelensky boasting his relationship with institutions like BlackRock, JP Morgan, and Goldman Sachs.
President Zelensky Brags About Gaining the Attention and Cooperation of Giant Financial Institutions

“It is obvious that American business can become the locomotive that will once again push forward economic growth,” said Zelensky, according to the translation. “We have already managed to attract attention and have cooperation with such giants of the international financial and investment world as BlackRock, JP Morgan, and Goldman Sachs.”
Carlson chimed in: “So, we’re getting moral lectures from the banks, and we’re getting a lecture on capitalism from some Ukrainian oligarch in a sweatshirt.”
Even as Zelensky brags about support from U.S. financial institutions, the Biden administration is attempting to reassure Americans to trust the industry.
“Americans can rest assured that our banking system is safe. Your deposits are safe,” Biden said during a 7 minute set of remarks in the Roosevelt room. “Let me also assure you we will not stop at this. We will do whatever is needed on top of all this.”

Superimposed upon the ongoing U.S. financial downturn is the prospect of the Ukraine-Russia war igniting into a Third World War between the world’s most powerful nuclear nations, said 45th President Donald Trump during a speech in Iowa earlier this week.
The former president has repeatedly claimed that he could end the worsening military conflict between Ukraine and Russia in just 24 hours by mediating peace negotiations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Zelensky.
“Standing before you today, I am the only candidate who can make this promise: I will prevent World War 3,” the former president told the large crowd of supporters. “Because I really believe you’re going to have World War 3.”

Desperate England in WWII held its nose allied with the USSR. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Desperate Ukraine will ally with anyone much for the same reason.
Sit in a cold muddy trench in your back yard for a couple months and think about it.

That must be why I’m rootin’ for Putin i.e. the enemy of my enemies (Soros’s puppet Zelensky, Obama’s puppet Biden, the war mongering/profiteering deep state military, intelligence, industrial complex, the liberal interventionists (aka neocons), etc.) – is my friend.
Now he wants F-16s. As I recall, that’s exactly how we got mired in Vietnam. First came the jets. The jets needed pilots (American) and more importantly, bases – which needed to be defended by troops, American of course. Then came the need for offensive operations that required tens of thousands more troops – American troops.

You’re completely ignoring the fact that Ukraine has been a puppet state of these so called “allies” since the color revolution and coup in 2014.
You’re wrong about England during WWII as well. The only reason there even was a world war was because of a concerted effort by the international bankers to regain control of a country that had freed itself from their grip by taking control of it’s own banking including arresting a Rothschild and seizing his bank.

About the Trump video boast! HOW …will you prevent WWIII?
You did not get Russia to leave Ukraine after they invaded in 2014 and Russia did not use nukes. Soo doing nothing again is your plan?
BTW, WWIII actually started in 1950 in Korea. United Nation forces fought USSR pilots in the air and Communist China on the ground.
No peace treaty was ever signed!! So technically we are still at war. The 70 year time out only allowed our enemies to get much stronger.

Could your comment be any more ignorant? I think Trump is a cuck, but Obama was president in 2014 when people like John McCain and others personally went over there and started a color revolution fomenting the coup which overthrew the legitimate Ukrainian government and plunged Ukraine into nearly a decade of civil war. Putin’s annexation of Crimea which the people there overwhelmingly voted for was only in response to that. Why should Russia have left Crimea?

Also, doing nothing IS the PERFECT solution and the only thing that will keep us out of war. Don’t send them money. Don’t send them guns, or tanks, or jets, or missiles, or any military equipment. Dont send them troops. Dont send them anything. Zero, zip,nada! Don’t get involved in ANY way whatsoever. That is the ONLY surefire way to stay out of the war they are trying to embroil the world in. You simply do nothing and stay the F out of it. That will never happen because our country is bought and sold though.

My guess would be that these ‘supporters’ would wish that Zelensky, as to their relationship with him, would keep his mouth shut at this difficult moment for them.

If only we had a real leader who would fight the “banksters”.
FK NAZIS , COMMIES , MAGGOTS , LIBS !!

Think again Muchacho , Zelensky hates Jews and Supports your Buddies the NAZIs !! Groups like Swaboda and AZOV !!

Cool, have them all send their troops to the front lines.

Why cant those banks and brokers fail? All part of the new world order WEF crap.
March 16, 2023 at 9:50 am
Because you would have to arrest the bankers for their crimes and seize their central bank but no one has the balls of an Austrian painter.

Follow the money. The NWO financiers all back the laundering operation known as Zman’s Ukraine.
Let’s send the financial wiz kids, the politicians who created this mess, and of course the bidens and lindsay graham should over first to show us how its done. If they survive a two year tour, the rest of us can then think about going.

I wouldn’t worry about Zelensky, he’s enjoyed his reign and some money thinking it will last until he’s old and senile when he’s just been a paid puppet for the CIA. Blackrock, JP Morgen & Goldman Sachs are all controlled by the CIA, when Zelensky becomes the useless fool and you can see it happening, he will be cut down by the CIA and those financial giants that the CIA keeps most of the money they made from drugs, weapons & the taking out of government’s and their useless leaders will make hundreds of billions stripping the Ukraine before they install a new useful idiot to take the place of Zelensky. It’s only a matter of time.
