A fan didn’t like Buck’s take on Donald Trump, and he responded in the classiest way possible

A lot of pundits have been knocking Donald Trump's conservative credentials in recent days, yet his poll numbers keep climbing. Clearly, The Donald's tough talk has connected with people's frustrations. On his radio show, Buck Sexton joined many of the voices criticizing Trump's record. He got a lot of pushback from listeners, and decided to post a letter he wrote to one Team Buck member who took issue with his comments. It's not the sarcastic or frustrated argument you've probably been seeing from Trump critics, but a well-written and (seemingly) final word on the subject.

Buck wrote:

Got a lot of heat from some of you on my Trump commentary- including an email from a longtime listener and friend who was really fired up about how wrong I am on this--- so I decided to post my email response, which would also be my response to many of the comments I've seen here over the last 24 hours. Give it a read (please read all of it if you plan to scream at me in all caps)- and of course, share your thoughts:


Dear (TeamBuck member),

Always good to hear from you, even when you are writing in to express your vehement disagreement with me.

Before I address your criticisms: I think you would concur that I spend a vast majority of my radio time on things that matter to us all, and leave the petty intra-party GOP squabbles and poll-chasing to others to sort out.

However, I agree that, in this case, with the rise of Trump, I have deviated from that norm, and with that in mind, as you are a loyal and respected member of the TeamBuck radio tribe, Im writing to give you a full and considered response.

Before I go into my reasoning- let me say that I am already aware that some members of Teambuck (yourself included) strongly disagree with me on this Trump issue. And by no means am I going to needlessly antagonize some of my supporters and friends by continuing to harp on my opinion regarding one GOP candidate out of 15.

That said, it is because I believe so deeply in conservatism and Constitutionalism (as well my adamant refusal to pander, ever) that I felt compelled to speak out about the Trump candidacy. For me, it feels like watching a close friend walk up to the altar with someone you know has cheated on them time and again in the past. The choice is theirs to make, but I would feel it ignoble to stand by and say nothing.

I spoke out on Trump because I love my fellow conservatives and I love this country. Please keep that in mind as you read below:

Donald Trump, by his record, is not a conservative. I do not believe anyone really argues otherwise, as Trump has over the last ten years advocated for socialized medicine, a wealth tax, and amnesty for illegal aliens. He has very publicly praised Hillary Clinton (and given money to her campaign), expressed the deepest respect for Barack Obama's skills as President, and denigrated George W Bush while he was still in office.

Now, I understand that the argument is made that Trump is saying the right things today, that he is saying what needs to be heard today, and that he is giving voice to people who want to be heard- today. I know- in fact I share- deep unease with the current state of politics in this country. And Trump is articulating those frustrations.

But Trump has a long history of saying whatever will garner the most press at any given time, and so my concern is for what he will say (and do) tomorrow.

Character is destiny... and Trump is a character above all else.

I also do not understand why so many who wish for liberty and Constitutional governance are quick to forget about Ted Cruz, who I do not believe has to prove his conservative credentials to anyone, or Scott Walker, who while imperfect on the issues has fought- and won- against the progressive union machine in a Democrat stronghold. To ignore these- and even some other GOP candidates- I believe is a mistake.

With all of that said- and with full knowledge that I have almost certainly not in any way changed your position about Trump as a candidate- let me say that I understand the difference between sharing an opinion among like-minded friends and patriots- and lecturing them. I think my thoughts on Trump are well-known to TeamBuck at this point- and I do not intend to turn this presidential campaign season into one long anti-Trump harangue.

I have told my TeamBuck family how I feel about this possible future spouse of theirs, so to speak...if any one of them wants to sign on the dotted line and say "I do," it is up to them.

We have a busy summer ahead in the Freedom hut: illegal immigration, ISIS, Obamacare, gun control schemes, Russian expansionism- and of course the unknown unknowns of the news cycle. I hope that you will accept my respectful disagreement on the issue of a Trump primary win (I would vote for Trump over Hillary, of course) and join me again, with the rest of TeamBuck, as we continue our mission to grow together in wisdom, knowledge, and friendship.

Shields High,

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.

In honor of the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, we would like to resurrect this gem from Glenn's Instagram archive. If "the Great Reset" doesn't work out, Schwab should consider reaching out to the Bond franchise for a Plan-B career.

PROOF the World Economic Forum wants you eating... BUGS!

As the World Economic Forum continues to meet in Davos about building a more "sustainable" future, Glenn's warning on a seemingly outlandish sustainability goal is becoming reality: eating bugs!

In its 2023 Global Risks Report, the World Economic Forum called for the "transition to net-zero, nature-positive food" to fight "food insecurity." In other words, the WEF imagines a future with minimal meat and maximum "zero-emissions food"—like bugs—as consumers' main source of protein. This is a part of "the Great Reset," the agenda proposed by the World Economic Forum in 2020, urging leaders to take advantage of the COVID-19 crisis to restructure the "world order" to bring about a leftist Utopia.

Major news outlets like the BBC have promoted insect farms as a sustainable food source to "reduce the reliance on everyday meat eating."

So what's the big concern about eating bugs? As the video points out, many cultures throughout the world have been eating insects for centuries—many consider them a delicacy! The issue with the WEF's push for insects isn't merely the option to eat bugs. If someone wants to munch on some grasshoppers, nothing is stopping them! The major concern is the way in which the WEF wants to mandate insect consumption, and, consequentially, destroy the beef industry.

According to the same 2023 Risk Report, the WEF calls for "radical policy measures" to bring about the food transition to zero-net-emissions food, like insects. This means imposing such a burden on the dairy and cattle industries that it renders them impossible to function, paving the way for a new insect industry.

In the Netherlands, the EU's largest food exporter, the government is forcing the farmers to sell their land to the state unless they reduce the amount of nitrogen fertilizer used. However, without nitrogen fertilizer, it is nearly impossible for the farmers to produce enough food to feed the nation, not to mention turn a profit. Moreover, without nitrogen fertilizer, it will be impossible for cattle farmers to produce enough food to feed their cows. This is an impossible burden for farmers to bear, and they often capitulate and sell their land to the government, paving the way for a burgeoning insect industry. Is it any coincidence the EU is pushing for insects as a means of "food sufficiency" and combatting climate change?

If you think eating insects is a novel issue from across the pond, think again. There is a growing push for a "beef tax" in the U.S. to disincentivize beef consumption and incentivize alternative "sustainable" protein sources...like bugs. According to 2021, data, U.S. beef is a 79-billion-dollar-per-year industry, employing million across the U.S.'s 700,000 cattle farms. These stats don't even include the U.S.'s dairy industry. If the global environmentalists have their way, this major U.S. industry will be wiped out, wreaking havoc on our economy. Yet this government control over the "everyday person's" consumption is all too tantalizing.

As the World Economic Forum convenes in Davos to discuss how to achieve their "sustainable utopia," Glenn continues to advocate for the free market and the ability to choose our own consumer goods, rather than giving global elites the power to consolidate and mandate their "approved goods" for widespread consumption. Though consuming insects may seem like an outlandish idea that has no impact on our daily lives, it is a part of a larger movement to control our way of life to achieve a more sustainable future, threatening both our economy and our basic freedoms.
