In his March 11, 2022 monologue, Tucker Carlson says: This could very easily get worse. This is one of Carlson's most insightful monologues.

Andrea Widburg discusses this further in her March 12, 2022 American Thinker article: Perhaps Tucker Carlson's most profound monologue ever. Here are some excerpts:

... Even when I don't agree with him, I find him worthwhile, and never more so than his Friday night monologue about Biden's latest, terrifying power grab and how our government is destroying the American economy. It was a tour de force and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Tucker opened with something I'd meant to write about and now don’t need to: Without a single pause, the Biden administration slipped effortlessly from COVID emergency powers (which are now passé thanks to polling) and is, instead, assuming war powers, even though we're not at war:

[Tucker Carlson]: At exactly the moment when the emergency powers they awarded to themselves to fight COVID started to wane, our leaders began pushing for conflict with Russia. And then, on the basis of that conflict, they assumed historic war powers.

Without even pausing, the Biden administration declared total economic war on a sovereign country. No American had been killed. The United States had not been invaded or attacked. And yet, with no meaningful public debate or congressional authorization, the Biden administration destroyed that country's currency, then removed it from the international banking system, then impoverished its population. Then the administration began seizing the property of people affiliated with that country, without a trial or due process of any kind, without even bothering to explain exactly what crime they had committed.

Tucker explained that what happened is unprecedented and incredibly dangerous for the American people:

[Tucker Carlson]: No American government had ever done anything like that before. If there was one thing the U.S. government long stood for it was the rule of law. The integrity of the system was always the most important thing. But not anymore. That turned out to be an era and that era is gone. Because the target is Russia, very few Americans have noticed any of this. They support it. Virtually no one has paused to ask him or herself where this might be going. How long until our leaders do something similar to their domestic enemies here in the United States? How long before they accuse you of collusion or disloyalty or some other hard-to-define crime, declare you an enemy of the state, and then confiscate your bank account? Something very much like that just happened in Canada.

But Tucker didn't stop there. He segued smoothly to the vast, unimaginable power the tech monopolies have over American minds and how they are steering us inexorably to accept treating Russia as a nation to be destroyed just because we don't like it....

But despite all this, the one thing neither the tech monopolies nor the administration can hide is that our economy is imploding. Tucker explains with great clarity why this is and it's not because of Russia or the oil companies. It's the fault of a government that has deliberately flooded the American economy with money—and has been doing so since 2008....

Carlson concludes:

Because there's so much hysteria, particularly on social media, but when that hysteria lifts, when the cloud finally evaporates, it will be obvious at the Biden administration's response to the invasion of Ukraine is the single most damaging thing any American president has ever done to this country and to the world.
