(Liberty Bell) – Freedom-loving conservatives in America have noticed that while Republicans in Congress talk the talk, they rarely actually walk the walk. Time after time, Republicans drop the ball on fighting for the interests of the American people even though they oftentimes vehemently claim to be doing just that.
How many times have Republicans kowtowed to the left and all but flew the white flag of defeat without hardly even a fight? Why are Republicans’ actions so disconnected from the causes and interests Americans voted for them to address?
Democrats are highly effective in Congress because they are working to accomplish their agenda and it has started to seem as though many Republicans are perfectly fine with simply sitting back and allowing that to happen.
If you’ve ever wondered why Republicans in Congress seem uninterested in what their voters actually want, Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave one very problematic reason during his opening monologue Friday.
The GOP has been infected and too many of its members are listening to liberal pollster and strategist Frank Luntz.
Carlson pointed out a number of ways in which the GOP has been negatively affected by Luntz and his liberal agenda but, as Tucker reported Monday night, one particularly troubling aspect is the fact that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) isn’t just friends with Luntz, they’re roommates.

Kevin McCarthy lives in Frank Luntz Washington DC apartment. Is it any wonder that this liberal lobbyist who works for woke companies like Google, Nike, and Amazon has such influence in the Republican Party?
On Friday night, before Carlson was made aware of McCarthy and Luntz being roommates, he pointed to a variety of ways in which Luntz effectively lobbies within the Republican Party on behalf of woke Corporate America and the liberal agenda.
For years, Luntz has been craftily using his influence within the GOP to steer them towards the establishment swamp and now Republican voters can plainly see just how effective Luntz has been.
Carlson noted how Luntz uses “focus groups” to inform the Republican Party how conservative Americans really feel about hot topics like gun control, immigration and law & order.
In one example, Carlson pointed out how Luntz discovered that Republicans actually support mass immigration and believe in amnesty for dreamers. Of course, this is completely inaccurate but Luntz used a “focus group” and found “bipartisan” support for his liberal viewpoint.
The same is true of gun control. As Carlson reported, Luntz claims most Americans agree with “gutting” the Second Amendment while also protecting it. Of course that’s completely untrue but Luntz, as Tucker puts it, is a “smooth salesman.”
“Frank Luntz is a smooth salesman. He’s been around for a while. The problem is that Frank Luntz’s views are very different from those of your average Republican voter. Frank Luntz is a conventional liberal. His main clients are left-wing corporations like Google. When Frank Luntz gives advice to congressional Republicans, he’s got Google’s perspective in mind. That’s a huge problem,” he added.
A huge problem, indeed.
