tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  July 5, 2021 10:00pm-11:00pm PDT

10:00 pm
thank you so much for your time in your analysis. tomorrow on special report looking back at the legacy of former first lady nancy reagan. i'm mike emanuel. fox news prime time hosted by mark steyn starts right now. have a great night. because the one and only tucker starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker ca >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight," hope you had a great fourth of july with the ones you love.e it wasn't too long ago that joe biden told us we might not be allowed to celebrate our own independence day because he had the power to decide that. had more and more control over our lives more than we ever had in american history but at the
10:01 pm
same time and that's where we launched a streaming show on fox nation, a longer format and it gives us much more time to talk to interesting people about where the world is going. tonight we are going to highlight just a few of them. a lot has changed in the lasthi few years and the people who are watching carefully have changed their views too. charlie kirk is definitely in that category. the cofounder of turning point usa, one ofy the biggest conservative groups in the country. we talk to him about his views of america have changed and about where the republican party and conservatives ought to be going. here's part of it. >> the people that dominated the conversation now that i realize were either heavily influenced wanted the conservative movement to revert tove abstracts and ideoly
10:02 pm
towards the kind of corporate tyranny, which i would love to explore, and this kind of thought also lends itself l towards not necessarily away from partisanship but it gets towards a more nuanced and dareb i say a more thoughtful d conservative movement in the sense that we are unafraid to say you know what, maybe i agree with bernie sanders immigration policy when he talked about in 2004. maybe mass immigration shouldn't be the most important things that conservatives should always stand for and s russell kirk predicted this that as soon as the soviet union fell, the conservative movement in america would know what to do with themselves and he predicted this almost to the date and time. so the berlin wall falls and this is what i call the four horsemen of the '90s and i was born in '93 so all of this was happening while i had basically no say about it where the generation that did so well, the
10:03 pm
older baby boomers and the george h.w. bush, irving kristol generation were in the prime of their political career and so what did they decide to do as soon as the berlin wall fell? almost to the date, russell kirk was right, mass immigration, george w. bush signed in this compromise with ted kennedy to bring in millions of people unrestricted into our nation of this great bargain of cheap labor and cheap boats so both sides got a win out of that. 1994, bill clinton signed nafta because we decided it would be e good idea to be industrialized the backbone of our nation and in 1999, one that might surprise people as a conservative i think we should find disgusting was the repeal when bill clinton went out of his way to pander to the financial services lobby that led to cheap money on the blurring of lines to commercial banking and investment banking and finally trying to enter into the world trade organization in
10:04 pm
2001. all four of those things i believe was the conservative movement where the people in charge chasing momentary pleasure and not preserving the good with no commitment to permanence or trying to pass something that has worked that is moral and beautiful to my generation. >> tucker: where do you think this is going? >> i try not to be solely in the predictive business. i can tell you where i think it's going. here's the question -- i don't think anyone has really said it like this. was 2016 a tremor and earthquake are in aftershock meaning was it something before something when donald trump got elected? was it an earthquake which was obviously called or was it in aftershock?ha i think it's a tremor. i think what we are living through is a 10-year long tremor of something that's about to happen. a tremor meaning something that happens before the earthquake
10:05 pm
the geological explanation. i think when historians write this, they will look at that is the beginning of a decades long reckoning with this kind of pocket technology, the surveillance states, corporate tdominance, postmodern secularism, all these different factors putting together. so where is this going? i don't know, but i do know that there is a restlessness among decent people of what to do next. where is my place in this world. do i always have to be to these devices? and so there is probably going to be because of that. >> tucker: the democratic party was once the party of economic populism, the party of fdr.. it no longer is, it's the party of billionaires and identity politics. the result of this is we almost never talk about economics inn our public conversations. why is that and what are we missing? gil ferguson is one of the greatest historians now writing in english, written a number of books on economic history as well as international history.
10:06 pm
we asked him about this. here's the conversation. >> i noticed in the last few years i spent at harvard was the climate became a chilly climate in which you felt weary in thear classroom or even in private conversations for fear that somebody might take umbrage and you would find yourself on the wrong side of the cancel culture. >> tucker: it happened at this weird time where you had this rise of monopoly power, explosion of finance. it seems to me the people on the left didn't want to conversations about economics because they had lost that argument in the 1980s, haven't been able to make the case were
10:07 pm
-- they had lost their arguments i the 1980s. and the conclusion was that there was more money to be made or more power to be gained by exploiting identity politics and emphasizing cultural racial gender differences.em that's where d all the energy me to and it was bad luck for the working classes. hard-luck for the economic losers from globalization and financialization because they really cease the figure in the debates that were going on in the elite universities and an educational system as a whole. so i think the answer is partly there was a shift of strategy on the left away from economics into what seemed like a brand of culture but it was also partly because the people who had lost out in that period from 2001 when china joined the world trade organization, the people who lost out were of no interest
10:08 pm
to the academic left. the working class of middle america just ceased to figure and i think one of the things that we don't fully realize although it's becoming more clear is what the left now offers is in fact a religion. it's not a secular political ideology. that's why people were saying earlier it's not about economics. it is about salvation membership of the woke and it's about elaborate rituals and speeds that can only be pursued by the believers. that somebody i usually agree with but he called it the great and that is a very astute observation. far worse, the rise of new fake religions, political religions. and one thing that is very clear from the 20th century is when
10:09 pm
people take their religious and apply them to political ideology, central to him what made communism so deathly is it's ultimately religion marxism is the same is true. we have to be very careful of politics is not something that you should approach without a religious impulse. you start feeling that about politics, take a lie down and have some sleep, take a long walk and try again because politics should not be imbued with religious sentiment. what makes islam so problematic in the world is there is no separation of church and state. the politics and the religion are inseparably meshed together. and muhammad essentially said you must practice a forcible export of this religion to the rest of the world.
10:10 pm
so christianity was clever and it separated religion from politics and that separation is incredibly valuable and again it's one of the things that makes the united states different. it's one of the things that is special about the united states that this decision was upheld and we shouldn't blur it. the minute you blur it, all kinds of things can happen because people will do no more extreme things and they would if they were applying politics in a rational way to the realm of problems that politics can solve which is actually quite narrow. >> tucker: refugees are flooding into the state of florida, but here's the thing. they are all american. why is that happening? we asked the governor of the state ron desantis, that conversation straight ahead.
10:11 pm
10:12 pm
10:13 pm
10:14 pm
10:15 pm
>> tucker: for generations florida was known as the sunshine state and many people know it as the free state. one of only a few why is that? a lot has to do with the governor of florida ron desantis. we had a long conversation with governor desantis, including about his life. here is part of that. it's interesting because people come from some little town out in the provinces and they show up at a place which is maybe not
10:16 pm
that different, it is an elite institution and they decide this is the world i really love these are the values that i believe and it's more contemptuous. >> i had never heard anybody criticize america, everything was about how bad america was. i never heard anyone criticize god or christianity -- yale's motto is for god and they hated god and hated the country and had a weird way of going to their institutions and seeing that was really eye-opening andd i realized very early on this is not quite where i personally fit in. >> tucker: very hard to get into those schools. >> here's what i would say. the people are smart for sure but if you think you are smarter than you are, you've got some problems. even if you are really smart and
10:17 pm
i think what i saw was people who were smart, but tended to think they were a lot smarter and knew a lot more than they really did and i think there's a lot of danger to that. you have to have a little bit of humility. you want to be confident in what you believe and what you think, but there's always more information out there and be careful of getting over your -- and i think that has served me well. >> tucker: how important do you think that is to people's decision to move here? >> it has definitely been a factor for sure on the fact that florida was not on lockdown like these other states, i think the lockdowns provided an impetus because they needed an outlet to do things of some of these states like minnesota andat california and on the fact that they were locked down and had the opportunity to go out and do stuff added fuel to the fire of
10:18 pm
what was going on so the fact that we took a hard line on that, people understood as a law and order state but also we were open has been a huge factor in people moving to florida. >> tucker: obviously you've had a lot of successes, what didn't go according to plan? how did you screw up in retrospect? >> early on, i was hungry for data so i would look at south korea, italy, and i'm trying to make sense of this virus and it seemed to me this is something that was risky for hielderly people. didn't seem like there was much risk in people, not just kids but even people who are reasonably in good health under 50 but i didn't have the proof of that in florida so when they did that 15 days to slow the spread, we followed that where is i think if i had more data, i would've had the ability to say why would we need to close a gym for two weeks? these are younger people working out if you are healthy, going to end up dealing with the virus better so i think it took me a few weeks, march and into april to get enough data to say okay
10:19 pm
we are not doing faucism, and we're going to make sure estate is open, get the kids back intoe school and we will focus our protection on elderly people. >> tucker: if you want to understand what's happening on the border, talk to someone who lives there. he's the mayor of texas right up against mexico. for him, open borders have been a disaster and that is true for the people of his city too. many of the people coming across the border he saysys are comingy rail. the number of apprehensions on trains is at 900% commencing videos of those migrants on trains right now. it's remarkable footage but very common. don mclaughlin said the crisis is getting so much worse, state officials in texas meanwhile aren't even taking his calls. watch. >> we've always dealt with immigration and it's never been
10:20 pm
a problem but most of the time when they came out hered will looking for work, just passing through, very humble and very nice and now these groups that come through is totally different than what we saw. we caught 16,500 young male immigrants last month, just last month. >> tucker: that's the size of your entire town. >> that's what they caught. and i'm going to tell you a good many of them came right through our surrounding area. it is nonstop. >> tucker: you just made the point that you've dealt with immigration forever because you heare on the board but the peope you are seeing now are different. how are they different? >> they are more aggressive feel like you owe them something. the pictures that media shows on tv from a very docile and humble people is not what we are seeing. you can talk to border patrol this group of people are very aggressive.
10:21 pm
they want to fight you, they don't want to stay, they don't want to be caught and we used to not see that. now people are nervous at night. i've been mayor of the seven years now, i've causedve senator cruz's office when this started, i have yet to hear from them. i'll have an aide call me andr tell me different things but it goes to no avail. >> tucker:to you can get in touch with your own senators? >> as an elected official, i cannot getll a call back. >> tucker: they call themselves conservatives, now the governor of your statete famously a republican, probably the last one you're going tot have. >> i hope not. >> tucker: i hope not too but looks that way, governor abbott says he believes in border security and what has he said to you? >> the same thing. i've called his office until i'm blue in the face, talk to his t secretary, talk to the chief of staff one time but get no response. it's time for us as a state to
10:22 pm
say you know what? the federal government is not controlling this border. our governor needs to quit worrying about being reelected and say it's time we shut this border down. the federal government won't take care of it, then we should. >> tucker: why wouldn't you do that? >> i don't know why we are not doing that. the constitution says of the government does it, we have the right to protect our borders and we are not because it's an invasion in our country. del rio last month, 740 people a day across the board. >> tucker: so your governor just want to say his name again governor abbott seemsms like a total fraud who was a republican.. he could just say this is our state, the state of texas and we are not putting up with this ans we are going to seal our border because it's our state but he has refused to do that. >> i agree, he should. there was a bill in the house to protect the border wall in the state of texas and there's a lot of support in texas to build up border wall.
10:23 pm
>> tucker: after george floyd died in minneapolis last may, we were told we needed a racial reckoning. that reckoning was based on lies. we will talk to two of the people who exposed those lies next.
10:24 pm
10:25 pm
hearing is important to living life to the fullest. that's why inside every miracle-ear store, you'll find better laughs at family barbecues. you'll find a better life is in store at miracle-ear, when you experience the exclusive miracle-ear advantage. including innovative technology, like the new miracle-earmini. so powerful, yet it's nearly invisible. we're so confident we can improve your life, we're offering a 30-day risk-free trial. call 1-800-miracle today and experience the miracle-ear advantage. enocide took theiracle today lives of six million jews and thousands of jewish survivors are still suffering in poverty today. god calls on people who believe in him to act on his word.
10:26 pm
"comfort ye, comfort my people." when i come here and i sit with lilia i realize what she needs right now is food. these elderly jews are weak and they're sick. they're living on $2 a day which is impossible. this now, is how god's children are living. take this time to send a survival food box to these forgotten jews. the international fellowship of christians and jews urgently need your gift of $25 now to help provide one survival food box with all of the essentials they critically need for their diet for one month. no vitamins and no protein so my legs and hands are very weak. oh, oh, oh let's make sure that we bring them just a little bit of hope.
10:27 pm
by bringing them a little bit of food. become a part of the fellowship today by reaching out to bless these precious people of god. for just $25, you can help supply the essential foods they desperately need for one month. that's less than a dollar a day. i just want to encourage all of you to join with yael eckstein and the wonderful work of the international fellowship of christians and jews. god tells us to take care of them, to feed the hungry. and i pray holocaust survivors will be given the basic needs that they so desperately pray for to survive.
10:28 pm
>> welcome to fox news live. stormy weather is hampering search efforts at the collapse condo building in surfside, florida. a garage area also flooded, forcing rescue crews to use pumps. four more bodies were found, bringing the conference number dead to 28. and an escalating covid 19 -- over the july 4 weekend. and a hard-hit area where vaccination rates are low.
10:29 pm
they felt the variant is straining hospitals in springfield. one hospital's trading one more pace -- 100 more patience than they did in may. i am lauren blanchard and now back to "tucker carlson tonight." >> tucker: after george floyd died in minneapolis last year, america changed and it changed very fast. we were told we needed to reckon with something called systemic racism for the democratic national committee heard that african-americans are routinely murdered by the police. all of it was a lie.da a social scientist and a professor and has studied the data on this. he's got a new book called the hate crime hoax. we had an amazing conversation. you've never heard of him, watch this. what are some of the things that you believe are true that are not permitted in polite conversation right now? >> the book looks at what you
10:30 pm
can call cancel culture today and what many people do call cancel culture, which is this idea that there were certainul things that may be true but may even have very intense explanatory value that you're not supposed to discuss in polite society. the problem here is that if you can't discuss the possible explanations for things, the very likely explanations for things in some cases, you end up having a nonproductive f conversation with things that aren't very relevant. sexism comes tovi mind in many conversations, ending up being labeled the total cause of everything we are seeing. so the first chapter of the book looks at the black lives matter movement. i openly say i'm a black man ane a proud one, and academic, i have some sympathy towards the underlying goals of the movement with racial equality and so on but point out many of the things they say are objectively not s true it if you look at the claim that there is a very large number of murders, if you will, of african-american men by police, that turns out simply not to be true.
10:31 pm
the total number of unarmedce african-american males killed in genuinely disputed, potentially controversial shootings by police last year, if i have the number correct, 13. the total number of unarmed people including the very large caucasian and hispanic majority we rarely talk about, that number was under 100. full number of police shootings all in was under 1,000 and that included people attacking the officer with a pistol or another firearm, knife, a vehicle used as a weapon. so that argument simply didn't stand up. there wasn't a gigantic black/white discrepancy. if you adjust for crime rate in the total number of these cases for all groups combined was 100 or less so those were the facts and i went on from there into interracial crime in general and i think this is something that the media and all political sides really emphasizes because like the failure of masculinity
10:32 pm
if you will, planes crashing out of the sky or animal attacks, it's one of those things that terrifies people we see a lot of stories about warriors and the other raceug attacking people unprovoked and ugly. it turns out this very rarely happens. there is an annual document that summarizes the victim reported crime in the usa that we callmm the justice statistics report.he out of 12 to 20 million crimes in a typical year, we have an problem of crime in this country, generally 600,000 of those are going to be interracial violent crimes that involve either a black perpetrator or a white victim or a white perpetrator and of blaca victims of a tiny percentage, 5% and even more politically incorrect part of that would be those numbers in general are also about 80% black on white. you have to understand, there are five times as many white people as black people just to begin the analysis, still a bit disproportionate but the
10:33 pm
actual figures don't give support to anyone's theory of paranoia. this is 5% of the crimes, it doesn't cut in the direction the mainstream media reports almost every time. and if we are going to talk about this fringe topic at all. so i make this point, it is saying there's an epidemic of white cops or white people attacking black people, we can all call out cases where that indeed did occur or may have occurred but that simply is not the reality of the country and presenting it as though it is hurts race relations pretty seriously. >> tucker: there are a lot of reasons to be very distressedy about higher education in the united states, most of it is garbage but there are rare bright spots and maybe the brightest of all is a professor at, of all places, brown university called glenn lowery. glenn lowry is really smart, a very clear thinker and in glenn lowry's vision, things that are
10:34 pm
very complex become suddenly understandable. we asked him about the moral panic that took place in this country after george floyd's death. here's what he said. >> the rioting in the street after george floyd died is a grave matter. the reaction is not to think it through, not to question, not to assemble facts, not to make arguments but instead such that you can hardly distinguish what they were doing from a manifesto that would come out of black lives matter. and i thought this is bad for the country, but i also thought this is horrible for the universities. >> tucker: and these are smart people. >> indeed they are, very smart people and you can speculate about their motives. >> tucker: they should know better. they are committed to free inquiry and that ought to trump their political concerns. >> or their insistence on having the world know that they are on the right side of history
10:35 pm
because we don't know what the right side of history is for most of these things. that's the question. we are there to figure out what the right side is. >> tucker: man, is that true. as you're living it, you need to retain some humility that 100 people will have a clearer sense of decisions. >> in 1789 they thought they knew with the right thing was.. in 1917 they thought they knew with the right side of history was. he thought he knew with the right side of history was. we live long enough to know that's pretty hard to know what the right side of history is. but like i said, we're universities, not a political campaign. could it be true that every member of the administration of this university reads the george floyd incident in exactly the same way?at i don't even know if it was a racial incident.
10:36 pm
i mean that seriously. >> tucker: of course, me too. >> he died, the jury spoke, was it a racial incident? was it a racial reckoning? i think something remains to be demonstrated here. when you say it's a racial -- when you racialized that encounter, emmett till, i was alive when emmett till was lynched in mississippi. this is not emmett till. i'm pretty sure of that. how many times can you remind the white majority of this country that their numbers are shrinking and they're about to be dominated by a nonwhite coalition of latino and black and what not, how many times can we tell them that they are intrinsically racist, that their lives are built upon an unearned privilege, how many times can you accuse them of failing to see your humanity when in fact you are living in the freest country and you are the richest people of african descent ever to have walked on the planet. how many times can you do that and not have them get the idea
10:37 pm
that they've got an identity that's a racial identity and it's not yours. that's not the world you want to live in. you don't want to be told in response to your iconoclasm, we will tear down the statues, we think the foundingng fathers are full of [bleep]. you don't want that. >> tucker: last year people in the scientific community told us that racism was a public health crisis. meanwhile, the country wasas ravaged by an actual public health crises. we will tell you what they are next. t they are
10:38 pm
10:39 pm
10:40 pm
10:41 pm
10:42 pm
>> tucker: as hundreds of thousands of americans got hooked on opioids, one family raked in billions of dollars from their suffering. but they didn't act alone. an investigative journalist has written an entire book on the opioid epidemic with a fascinating conversation. e
10:43 pm
here's part of it. >> 2007, purdue had to plead guilty to felony misbranding misrepresenting the drug is not addictive enough and too safe and everything else, $600 million fines, paid by the top three executives and if we spoke the week after that, i would've said to you it's over, doesn't matter, they are not going to sell big numbers anymore and would i have been wrong because after they plead guilty after this agreement, after the department of justice is t supposed to watch them, they have their biggest sales from 2008 on, bring in the great firm to say we need the big guys here, we need mckenzie and mckenzie tells them how to turbocharge sales in 2013 when sales are down $100 million and every year taking out 800 million, a billion in 2015 they make the forum's wealthiest families and forbes calls them the oxley clan.
10:44 pm
>> tucker: what does mckenzie tell them? >> this is fantastic. you need to increase the sales representatives who were going out, the detail team those that are selling the drugs directly to doctors by 20%, mako them make more visits and don't have them waste their time on the low prescribing doctors because that's not worth it. go just for the high prescribing, go to the ones who are -- >> tucker: i think a lot of people who first read about the story 20 years ago said to him and themselves that's really sad people are dying of drug abuse and addaicts o.d. and they are addicts and your sympathy is limited because they arer an addict and they are reviled. my mind was changed when i read the numbers, the numbers of pills coming into certain zip codes particularly inn appalacha and kentucky and west virginia and parts of ohio were so high
10:45 pm
it didn't seem to me that any honest and decent pharma executive could read these in the monthly report and think that was okay. >> it's impossible. you can't get away with it. they knew where there was heavy concentrations, they never reported any of this to the fda never reported anything back they just put on their blinders and said let's pocket the money. there's a lot of responsibility that goes around, it is the fda the middle distributors, doctors running pill mills, pharmacists who are willing to cut the roles and look the other way to fill the prescription that shouldn't they will take the brunt of the blame because they are the owners of this star drug that because of so much devastation but there's plenty of blame to go around. >> tucker: if you can't stop eating certain things, maybe there's a reason for that. it turns out a lot of the food products we buy at the grocery store are addictive and processed, as processed as crack cocaine.
10:46 pm
he would know, he spent more than a year writing the book "hooked how processed food became addictive." it explains a lot. he is part of our recent conversation. >> i'm starting to call a lot of these products fast groceries like fast foods in restaurants and one of the defining characteristics as they are so highly engineered and processed that you can't tell what original foodstuff from the farm went into them. much of the grocery store now is populated by these products. it's not just cookies and soda ice cream treats. we are talking the freezer aisle and the pasta sauce aisle and on and on and on but the issue is t when you talk to nutritionists is not that the food companies have engineered the bullet points things that we know are sweet. ice cream and soda and cookies they've marched around the stor
10:47 pm
adding the sugar, engineering for things i didn't used to be sweet so now brad has added sugar and a point for sweetness. yogurts, certainly could have as much as per serving of ice cream of sugar in them and then spaghetti sauce. >> tucker: has the same amount as ice cream? >> yes, per serving. and pasta sauce. some of the more popular brands ended up having the equivalent of a couple of oreo cookies worth of sweetness in the pasta sauce. so it's that marching around the store that really caused us then to expect sugar in anything everything we ate for sweetnessd so when you drag yourself over to the part of the store where we are all supposed to be spending more time, you know what i'm talking about, the brussels sprouts, broccoli and you get some of those bitter, sour notes that are also part of
10:48 pm
our chemistry, your brain is saying what's this? where is the sweetness? take you back to the middle of the grocery store. >> tucker: because consumption of sugar suppresses your ability to process the other tastes, so once you flood your system was sugar, the more subtle flavors don't even make sense to you. >> i think what's going on there is the memory. we are creatures of habit and the more you eat these ultra processed food products, the more your brain is going that's what i want, let's get more of that. so even beyond the sugar and one of the things that really startled me in writing the book is it's not just the ingredients that you see on the packages at the food company -- food companies know how to maximize the allure, they are going after our basic instincts.
10:49 pm
that draws to food and at one point, one of the scientists i was meeting and spending time with pushed back and said you know, it's not so much that we are addicted to food it's that we by nature hard drawn to food and the food companies have changed the nature of our food to make over eating an everyday >> tucker: comedy requires the truth and needless to say that not many comedians left in america but adam corolla is still telling the truth. wait till you hear what he's got to say next. truth. wait till you hear what he's got to say
10:50 pm
10:51 pm
10:52 pm
covid-19 has changed how we stomp the yard
10:53 pm
and feel the beat. now it's time to take the first step that lets us get back to strolling instead of scrolling. before we can safely come together, we need the facts. as covid-19 vaccines become available, you may have questions. student 1: is it safe? student 2: should i get it? student 3: is it free? it's okay to have questions. now get the facts about covid-19 vaccines at so you can make an informed decision for yourself and for your fam.
10:54 pm
>> tucker: adam corolla has always been a funny, but one of the last funny people in the entire united states.a because he's telling the truth when it's not allowed. wait until you hear what he thinks of the president of the united states. we just spoke to adam corolla for over an hour for tucker carlson today. here's part of it. >> i don't think joe biden means anything. i don't think there's anything>> that comes out of his mouth that
10:55 pm
he means and when he is talking about jim crow 2.0 or talking about certain -- i heard him the other day saying certain nations are being pulled back, certain states are being pulled back into jim crow where they are going to ask black people to count jelly beans before they can vote, it's insanity. it's reckless, it's irresponsible sort of insane. it's sort of equivalent to your pilot being drunk. he's not a bad guy. i know, but he is drunk and flying an airplane. yeah, he drinks a little. you know what i mean? it is kind of that, you know what i mean? he doesn't want to kill anybody. i know, but he's a drunken airline pilot. that's what biden is to me. saying horrible, divisive things that has got us going at
10:56 pm
breakneck speed apart from one another. politicians to figure it out corporations have figuredd it out, cola and airlines and all of that, they are all racing this direction. i don't think they know what the end game is and the end game is power. it's not prosperity. weit's just power. they are going to get more power, other people can languish, other people can go fight it out in the streets they are going to seize control of the power and i don't believe -- i don't believe a thing that biden says or kamala harris says. she is up there with biden in terms of does she believe what she says. one little interesting test to figure out whether they believe what they're saying is just go on youtube and see them saying exactly the opposite four years ago or two years ago are 18 years ago, you know whatrs i
