much of that. that is all the time we have this evening. please set your dvr so you neve miss an episode. now i hope you have a great weekend and let not your hearts be troubled. pete has filmic and for laura, we will see you back here. ♪ ♪ >> good friday pete: good morning, everybody in this is a special edition of the ingraham angle, declaring racism a serious public health threat. a michigan college reeling from another hate crime hoax. we expose the most egregious examples of bogus so-called journalism this week, the return of worst in the media.
mayor pete gets a new best friend. president biden creating a commission, we know what that is like. it is called court packing, adding justices, how many? who knows? an idea the old joe biden as a senator and chairman. >> president roosevelt had the right to send to the congress a proposal to pack the court but it was a boneheaded idea. it was a terrible terrible mistake to make and put in question for an entire decade the independence of the most significant body in this country, the supreme court of the united states. >> he was sharp in 1983 in his
young days but that was before joe became a captive vessel of the radical left. now he is attempting to give democrats cover to pack the court with far left judges who will legislate your rights away from the bench. the white house is trying to obfuscate what this new commission is really all about. >> the panels being asked to take a number of steps, looking at the court's role in the constitutional system, the length of service and turnover of justices on the court, the membership and size of the court and selection rules and practices that will have a report at the end of hundred and 80 days. >> all the wonderful things in 180 days, joining me as congressman leaves open who just announced his candidacy for governor of new york and also
with ms. greg jarrett, fox news legal analyst, thank you for being here, appreciate it. feels like the contrast this committee up however they like calling it reform but the true purpose has always been feet clear, your thoughts. >> the president doesn't have the mandate to do this because during the campaign what he was telling this was the opposite position. he can't claim the voters elected him to pack the courts. president biden as a candidate was promising not to do this. what donald trump do by appointing supreme court justices, his job, there were vacancies and he put forward nominees who got confirmed. president biden, he wants to score vision for the court, talking about our rights not being absolute in the constitution even though the constitution uses words like shall not be infringed, president biden is indicating that shall be infringed.
>> some are absolute but not the ones he likes. justice stephen breyer this week issued the stark warning to democrats on court packing. >> i'm trying to make those whose instincts may favorite important structural change or other similar institutional changes such as court packing think long and hard before they embody those changes in law. structural alteration motivated by protection of political influence can only feed that latter perception. eroding that trust. >> he knew exactly what he was saying. ruth bader ginsburg said the same thing, folks on the left are calling for him to step down because they want a replacement now. what will happen? >> it is a tortured canvas, packing the supreme court and it won't happen and the reason is simple. to accomplish it democrats would have to kill the filibuster and they don't have the votes to do that but president biden is officially and clearly surrendered to the progressive
woke crowd led by his vice president, the woke rest of the work. there's a reason why breyer and ginsburg were against this and that is because they see it for what it is. a naked paragraph that would erode the public's trust in the supreme court designed by the founders to be a backstop against governmental access, abuse of power and foolish ideas and if you try to pack records, what you are doing is setting a new and dangerous norm. anytime a political party gains power they will try to alter the composition of the court for their political desires and when they use power the other party takes over and they will either add even more justices or retract the ones that were added but the net effect is you would have a whipsaw of our laws. it would be in constant flux. one year something is lawful and constitutional, the next year is
not but president biden has unwittingly handed a political gift republicans they were used against him in the midterm election, in any paul americans are against court packing so this is really political suicide. >> he may not get a chance to do it for the reasons you said even if you want to. i could ask another question about this but we never give guys like you enough time to answer key questions about why they are running. some candidates get sunk as to why they are running. you want to go run for governor of new york. it is many years since a republican won in 2002. are you going to persuade new york voters, a blue state that it is time to end the grip on democrat power? >> we have to save our state, the first time in my lifetime we
are seeing new york city, albany and dc with one party democrat who and as a consequence of it in albany just this week they created the new highest income tax rate in the country to pay for a multibillion-dollar fund for people legally in our country. i'm talking to new yorkers, they are upset with the attacks on their wallets, their safety and their freedom, the taxes, the cashless bail, the defend the police movement, kids not being fully back in school. this isn't republican on democrat, this is about new yorkers going all in to save the state, to return the empire state to its former glory. i look forward to the campaign to earn the votes of new yorkers and to get to work with political and geographic balance in our state capital. all of your listeners across the country need to fight for this nation, we can't be frustrated wherever in america you are watching. pete: republicans have a
candidate of caliber, makes it something on a lot of people's radar. last question real quick is joe biden talks a lot about using the executive order more than anyone else, he talks recently, october of 2020 on the campaign trail about how donald trump used executive order, listen to how he talked about donald trump's use of executive order. >> some of my republican friends and some of my democratic friends say if you can't get the votes by executive order, things you can't do by executive order and thus your dictator. we are democracy, we need consensus. >> how do you get away with this? to call a dictatorship then do more executive orders than anybody else and talk about ending the filibuster and court packing. >> president biden has a long record of being a hypocrite. sometimes it is intentional but other times, just can't remember the positions he has taken previously which is a sad commentary on his diminished
mental acuity. show the clip of joe biden from 1980, back then he was pretty sharp. is no longer the same man. in that regard i fear for the future of this country. pete: good luck, keep us posted. the size of the supreme court, the only thing he wants to increase, aiming for your taxes. $2.5 trillion according to the treasury department coming from gouging business which means american workers will eventually get the shaft. so much for america first, the national association of manufacturers estimates biden's tax plan will eliminate 1 million jobs in just two years. joining me is larry kudlow, former white house economic advisor to donald trump and the man who helped bring so many
american jobs back home. you say these tax hikes would cause major damage not just at home or abroad. explain to the audience. >> major damage. your estimate, the two professors for rice university which is a very good school are saying we will lose million jobs in two years if this thing goes through, the tax foundation has similar estimates. this idea the these taxes are going to somehow help the economy and this idea that they will raise lots of revenue to pay for all the social welfare democrats want is nonsense, it is not going to happen and if you start packing american business, there's more coming when the budget is finalized, you will be above $3 trillion in taxes. you are going after
corporations, going after their profits. that means investment is going to fall, that means jobs are going to fall, wages are going to fall. this is not a free lunch, this is going to be very very painful and will make us less competitive globally. before donald trump we had the highest corporate tax in the world. donald trump brought it down 25, 30 points and made a big score of the results showed with job creation, low unemployment and repatriation of overseas money. of the biden plan goes through 28% top rate, putting 4 and a half% we will resume our position as the highest corporate tax among developed countries, that is not something mister biden wants to have hung around his neck. pete: they think about it.
is transportation secretary pete buttigieg justified the corporate tax increase. listen to this. >> the jobs plan envisions this being covered through corporate taxes, american corporations can be competitive, tax rate of 28 for the reason they are extremely competitive the tax rate that can handle 35, surely they can handle 28. >> 38, 25, 35, 28. what is the math? >> you are right. pays the bicycle guy, not a car guy. he is the guy who city is going to subtract roads when he gets the infrastructure package if it ever gets through so he was wrong, we were not competitive at 35, we were the top of the heat that we were losing money and losing jobs and losing factories all over the world. think of this. you do 28% which is what biden wants and dad for the half%,
32.5%, guess what china's corporate tax rate is? 25%. we will be so far above china. in my judgment that is not something this country can afford to do. we will lose capital, lose investment, lose factories to china of all places. we will provide funds for them to expand their military. this is a very unwise thing to do and i will later on one more thought, you hear this from yellen and biden, we have to stop taxes, the race to the bottom, taxes are falling too much, they are not falling too much. they have followed a little bit. most taxes, corporate taxes around 23, 24, 25%. second point, really, this is
about class warfare, tax the rich, tax successful people, this is class warfare, everybody knows that, we don't like corporations in the new administration, we want to give all their money to social welfare programs that don't even have work requirements and turn everything over to the green new deal. let me say this. investments from businesses is the workers best friend. there is no such thing as class warfare. class warfare is a silly socialist view. the first -- need a good job, need a good business to have a good job and you need investment to put into the business. investment is the worker and the family's best friend. that point has to be made as a challenge. pete: we loved having you making decisions. we need more than that. biden is propping up the
so-called medical experts who have been wrong about covid. remember when the experts told us disinfect anything you touch outside your home to stop the spread of covid. >> the virus can live on surfaces for up to three days. clean all the virus off here. it is a pretty sensitive virus. >> scrubbed down that campbell's soup can. the cdc is saying the opposite, there is little scientific support for routine use of disinfectant whether indoor or outdoor to prevent transmission. here to walk us through what the experts got wrong is doctor
marty mc harry from johns hopkins university and fox news contributor. why are we still putting our lives in the hands of people who keep getting the science wrong? >> the cdc got it right just 11 months late to the game. when we were telling people to wash their hands like crazy we should have been telling them to wear masks. when the guidance was to stay home we should have been telling people get outside. the evidence was there. if you think about it the one job of the cdc and doctor fauci is to warn us of a pandemic and help us manage an infection and covid 19 is transmitted just like sars, when it came around 17 years ago it was the exact same mode of aerosolized transmission. how did that not know it was the mechanism of transmission? it is important for people to have some degree of humility. pete: it is a little different but wouldn't you generally know here are the steps you would take?
>> they hedged their bets that this was an influenza-like surface transmission and got that wrong big time and that's costly because in new york you saw the density, the buildings, the elevators and when people went inside they were watching everything like crazy and doing the deep cleanings, turns out was floating in the air. that was a big miss. pete: today they made clear they are not ending lockdowns anytime soon. >> the vaccines are effective but because they are not perfect is why we are still urging people to be cautious, we still have an emphasis on wearing masks, keeping distance, washing hands and avoiding gatherings. >> perfect, they have to be perfect? how does this not discourage
people when the vaccine is supposed to be our hope? >> the pandemic is regional. look around the united states there are places that have achieved heard immunity already, the transmission is lower the risk to engaging in regular activities is really low and came out with recommendations was a routine was to tell everybody to do one thing, everybody's aware a mass, their recommendations to a country that is immune, why are we not seeing that humility, the we will give you two sets of guidance depending on whether or not you are protected? pete: humility is in limited sky supply across the board in many ways. personal responsibility as well which i appreciate you emphasizing when people in this country can think for themselves, thank you, appreciate your time. turns out the real public health
crisis is and covid, it is racism. ben carson joins us to debunk the cdc's latest pseudoscientific proclamation and dennis desousa exposes the latest hate crime hoax. why do nearly one million businesses choose stamps.com to mail and ship? no more trips to the post office no more paying full price for postage and great rates from usps and ups mail letters ship packages anytime anywhere for less a lot less get our special tv offer a 4-week trial plus postage and a digital scale go to stamps.com/save and never go to the post office again
>> we have to declare racism a public health crisis. we have sufficient data to the construction racism of public health crisis. >> racism is a public health crisis. >> the left clamoring for it and the cdc finally did it. they caved into the month-long campaign by the left to declare racism a, quote, serious public health threat. forget about covid 19. this is what the cdc should be focusing its time on. they are nailing it. they should focus on this, the agency saying in a statement that racism directly affects the well-being of millions of americans and the health of our higher nation. joining us is doctor ben carson, founder and chairman, former head secretary, thank you for joining us tonight. if in your expert medical opinion is racism a serious public health threat? if it
wasn't so serious. a few weeks ago you probably remember the french so the greatest danger facing the was a woke america. that is where the real health crisis is going on. i was looking at a news story and they were interviewing college students from other parts of the world and one of the questions was would you like to come to america, they all said there was a time when they wanted to, that time is past. what happened to the shining city on the hill that was the goal for people all over the world. we have to be very concerned about what is going on. america the idea, not america the place, that is so important. as far as the cdc is concerned it used to be a place of science where people did things based on
evidence and facts and when you start injecting politics into it, it really damages the credibility of that organization and that is problematic for us all in terms of public health, that's the real hazard, injecting politics into science. >> like when you pack the court you delegitimize the institutional country requires and needs, same with the cdc, same with the word racism. when you call everything racist it dilutes the actual meeting but when democrats actually act like racists it seems they are forgiven for it. remember this? speech to the north is a barometer the most forward-looking virginia ever with real progress on the original sin of racism in the abolition of the death penalty. >> ralph moore subbarao was caught wearing black face and now single-handedly smell removed the original sin of racism. you can be forgiven if you
sufficiently bends to the woke folks for mistakes you have made, never the other way around. >> what is so serious here is we are doing exactly what needs to be done to move to socialism and communism and that is replacing god with government, as government expands, as ronald reagan said, our freedoms decrease. that is what is really going on. people need to wake up and that is why we developed america cornerstone institute, to bring back those principles to remind people of who we are as americans. a godly principle is to love your neighbor. a woke principle is to cancel your neighbor. is that where we want to go? when you look down the road those two pathways lead to very different places. we still have a chance to change the direction of this country to
save it for our children and grandchildren we need to stop being selfish, that means not massively raising the debt because who has to pay that? not us older people, we will be dead and gone. we are ruining their lives. that's not fair. it is immoral. pete: we are all sinners, then we start pointing fingers in ways we never should have been can't walk back from it. i love the idea of the american cornerstone is about god and thank you for talking about it. have a great evening. appreciate it. if racism is such a pervasive problem why do so many hope profile -- high profile incidents turn out to be fake? the virginia dreadlocked cutting hoax, the nascar noose that wasn't in the latest example comes from michigan where a black male student has taken
responsibility for racist graffiti that was discovered on campus last week but the most bizarre part of the story is not what the student did but how the college responded. we know the acts of racism that occurred this week are not about one particular person or one particular incident, we made a significant history of racial pain and from on campus and we are taking action to repair our community. joining me is dennis desousa, conservative commentator and filmmaker. what we do know about this case is that was a 21-year-old black male who acted alone yet it is a community thing and the school is acting like this was not a hoax in the first place. >> if you step back and look at the incident you realize how bizarre this is. you have to ask why would anyone
stage a racial incident, if racism is a serious problem, if the incident occurred by themselves, if you go back a century blacks didn't get to stage lynchings because lynchings were going on, they had to fight against the lynchings that were very obvious to the naked eye. what happened on campus is racism has become extremely rare particularly on progressive college campuses, people bend over backwards to accommodate minorities and so it is almost like the economic fear, the demand for racism exceeds the supply and since the demand for racism exceeds the supply racism has to be manufactured to satisfy the demand and like you say it is not just the pathological behavior of the student who is obviously disturbed in some way but the college is now pleading guilty to a crime which was committed by the kid who said he was the victim of it. pete: the deans of diversity and
others ultimately exist because of this pervasive racism and if there isn't a supply of it then what are they doing there in the first place. >> that is the key point. there is a whole racism industry in place in this industry exists to service the cause of antiracism. if there's not racism around why do they exist. this is why the college is pleading guilty and some sort of pathology on the part of even white students because they are very eager to plead guilty to crimes they haven't committed. almost as if there is a desire psychologically to dissociate themselves and say i'm not the racist, it's all these other fictitious or hypothetical other white guys who can never be identified, but racism sneaks institutionally and has this effect. >> there's a bill that could
lead to reparation proposal on the house floor. are you point were reparation could end critical race theory could be passed in the halls of congress? >> it is unlikely that will happen. there is a little bit of a precedent where they gave reparation to japanese families in world war ii but let's remember in that case the reparations were made to those who were in the camp. in this case we are talking reparations for events that ended 150 years ago. it is a whole different matter. pete: that supply and demand thing makes a ton of sense. thank you. move over, joe, your friends, the media, have a new biden to font over. 's mayor pete vouching for the most aggressive? raymond arroyo explains it all.
policy you no longer need? now you can sell your policy, even a term policy, for an immediate cash payment. call coventry direct to learn more. we thought we had planned carefully for our retirement. but we quickly realized that we needed a way to supplement our income. our friends sold their policy to help pay for their medical bills and that got me thinking. maybe selling our policy could help with our retirement. i'm skeptical, so i did some research and called coventry direct. they explained life insurance is a valuable asset that can be sold. we learned that we can sell all of our policy or keep part of it with no future payments, who knew? we sold our policy. now we can relax and enjoy our retirement as we had planned. if you have one hundred thousand dollars or more of life insurance you may qualify to sell your policy. don't cancel or let your policy lapse without finding out what it's worth. visit conventrydirect.com to find out if you policy qualifies. or call the number on your screen. coventry direct, redefining insurance.
>> pete: it pete: it is friday night, time for -- that's right. friday follies. we turn to fox news contributor raymond arroyo. isn't that fun? hunter biden is still doing the 2-step about that laptop. listen to this from jimmy kimmel. >> i've seen you in some interviews talking about the laptop, and when they ask you if that was your laptop you say you don't know. >> i really don't know and the fact is it is a red herring. but i think within my rights to question anything that comes from the desk of rudy giuliani.
>> two quick points with hunter and the biden administration dismiss this laptop as a political creation of rudy giuliani or the russians, neither turned out to be true. the director of national intelligence, it was not russian disinformation. there is a red herring here, constant invocation of his crack addiction to pay for his sins, that he profited off of his father as vice president and sold access to his dad. that is the problem but if you're watching cnn, hunter's memoir sit somewhere between angela's ashes and out of africa. >> i never read a memoir like this one. this book about addiction, how many times hunter biden could have died, the president's son, is breathtaking. >> quite a critique if you put that on the book. >> he is breathtaking with that endorsement.
pete: cnn says hunter biden's story is a window into america's all. >> of this is america's soul it needs an exorcism. have you seen the daily mail expose of the laptop. fox hasn't independently confirmed these pictures but daily mail claims they are authentic, they had forensic folks look at it, the man is a degenerate. all we are learning from these reports it is clear hunter has been closer to more hookers than gonorrhea. the underage -- it is amazing what we are seeing, what is coming out but the media is totally ignoring it. the most interesting thing, hundreds of thousands of texts
and this one too president biden who writes if you don't run i will never have a chance at redemption. this is a clue into wi-fi in his state of decline continues to push himself, trying to redeem one son and remember both and being misused by his party, pushed into things he never would have. pete: got the redemption and write the book. the information in their, if it came from the right side of the aisle is depressing. it is amazing if you look at it. hunter is not the only political figure with a new memoir. john boehner is back with his book out this week that you have read. >> it is a our mouth screed, conservatives from his own party, he attacks everybody from trump to mark meadows, lucky you are not in there. >> >> then there is senator ted cruz, the ultimate false prophet. >> nobody except that jerk.
>> the gentle styling from his audiobook, listen. >> ted cruz, go [bleep] yourself. >> bitterness from cover to cover and then he writes this, i don't think i could get elected in today's republican party anyway just like i don't think ronald reagan could either. in truth i have spoken to members of his previous caucus, couldn't get elected barkeep at the capitol hill club but ronald reagan is a different story, it takes some coneys to attack the people, the tea party who made you speaker in 2010. pete: to do the things you were never willing to do, get all that political power and did nothing. he stood down. really synthetic but that was a shill for the marijuana industry.
before i leave you we have been following the exploits of major biden's dog. he bit another government employee last week. i think the dog should be removed from the white house but now pete buttigieg, the transportation secretaries opposed to transporting major anywhere as he told tmc live. >> first time i went in for a major -- oval office meeting we what got a lot but it will. >> did you pick major? >> i did and it went fine. there are stories about him but my interactions with him were good. >> isn't that reassuring, tell that to the park service employee's bit hand. >> we have obtained some exclusive video of mayor pete, you are our major biden correspondence, we got a meeting with major. watch this. >> hello? hello?
major? pete: what is that? he is auditioning for the crew joe sql. just great in it, just wonderful. >> mayor pete was only a lieutenant in the navy which is the equivalent of a captain, he is outranked by anyone with the title major. i think he is just deferential no matter what. >> have a great weekend, watch those odds and protect that laptop. >> have a great weekend. maybe you will lose it, maybe you won't know, maybe you will. coming up, the worst media offenders of the week, the ingraham angle has eyes on you, the tape you don't want to miss next.
minutes, on ron desantis. it is focused on accusations of pay to play. 60 minutes deceptively edited the clip to exclude most of the governor's adamant answer. what has the fallout been? is there any mea culpa at all? >> they wouldn't be because they are working to take down the likely republican nominee four years from now. they were doing the work they are allies in the progressive movement expect them to do. the big lesson of this, i am a floridian, florida excels in so many ways. we have better weather than new yorkers, better economy than new yorkers, better democrats than new yorkers, two democrats in florida put fact before partisanship, came to the defense of ron desantis. imagine if the media put fact before partisanship. doesn't happen at cbs news.
pete: a big black eye for 60 minutes, not normally doing things like this and they went all in. next up, this absurd statement from msnbc's joe scarborough. >> biden seems to me to be a mirror image of ronald reagan who was seen as temperamentally moderate. everybody's granddad. people liked reagan. we have in joe biden the guy who is temperamentally moderate, that republicans and talk radio bashes, suggest he is horrible are out of his mind and he is just good old joe. >> he said it with a straight face, a congressman who is part of the follow-on to reagan. joe biden is as reaganesque as jimmy carter. >> joe biden is the mirror image
of the caricature of ronald reagan, goofy, silly buffoon but where reagan had wit, biden has gaffes. reagan viewed the white house as his life's mission, biden used the white house as his nursing home. that is why he delegates the border crisis to kamala harris, had 30,000 votes, biden would be trying to it head with his grandma at the villages. amazing for scarborough to say that, reagan was a hero of mine, joe biden is no ronald reagan. >> reagan cut against the culture, everyone against him. biden a transitional presidency, third term of obama, it is amazing. the media carries water for the left's cause, this headline, companies fight the restrictive
new voting law, they even chablis still edited the headline to say activists are calling on companies to challenge new voting laws but they kept the thrust of the article, didn't even change it three ways in it. what is strange is cbs pushing to punish georgia it doesn't want to boycott a major sporting event, listen to this. >> viacom cbs is one of the companies opposing the voting law. cbssports will broadcast, got history there. pete: cbs will broadcast from georgia. >> i like for once they were honest. we see this all the time in media. these people pretend to be journalists but are really activists and they admit it. when they put it back up they said it is not us saying this.
it is activists saying this. there is a difference between the two. the left realizes they can't get ideas through legislation so they try to do it via corporations. and now they we companies like koch and delta into doing what they want. that is where our side should be fighting in the culture. pete: thank you for fighting it. all right, thank you. covid tyrants get what they deserve. last bite next. scotts turf builder triple action kills weeds, prevents crab grass and feeds your lawn. all three,in just one bag. i like that. scotts turf builder triple action. it's lawn season. let's get to the yard.
