5:00 pm
>> pete: you're exactly right. will cain, hope you come back, hope you come back. >> i'll be here. >> pete: thank you for watching "fox news primetime." i'm pete pete hegseth, we will have some off-color stories like we did tonight. i'm sure. up next, tucker carlson. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." it was a happy day in america, a beautiful july day and then this afternoon something great happened. joe biden made a very disturbing announcement. this country faces a crisis more dangerous than anything since the american civil war, biden said, that is gettysburg, shiloh, the walking dead of andersonville, the killing fields of the 19th century american south. that's what we're looking at
5:01 pm
right now, announced the president of the united states. by attempting to pass laws requiring voters to show i.d. when they vote, republicans are risking permanent internal division as well as violent conflict. think we are overstating? here's what he said. >> president biden: there's an unfolding assault taking place in america today, and attempt to suppress and subvert the right to vote in fair and free elections. we are facing the most significant test of our democracy since the civil war. that's not hyperbole. since the civil war. >> tucker: the civil war? sound overheated to you? joe biden would like you to know this is not hyperbole. voter i.d. laws are literally like the civil war. that is habeas corpus suspended, state legislatures shut down, hundreds of thousands of americans dead in fields. that was the civil war. biden made it clear that's what he meant.
5:02 pm
he said it twice. one was the last time a sitting american president gave a speech like this? well, probably not since the 1860s during the actual civil war. so it's hard to know how to process it. even allowing for the dementia, it was a stunningly irresponsible thing for an american leader to say out loud, dangerous even. so what grounds did biden said, what drove him to a? here's the fort sumter biden was referring to. yesterday 51 democrats in the state legislature in texas left texas including washington, d.c., on private jets. did this in order to deny the texas legislature a quorum and then they shut it down, they shut down the democratic process in their state. by leaving texas, they another words violated their sworn duties to represent their voters and they committed what amounted to an act of, yes, insurrection. why? so but texas lawmakers couldn't pass laws against voter fraud. laws, by the way, that voters in texas i have said overwhelmingly
5:03 pm
they want passed. that's democracy, but they are not getting it. the measure they would like to see become law require some sort of identification, something valid and real for voters to submit mail-in ballots. another bill would require the texas secretary of state to review voter rolls for noncitizens and remove people who are not allowed to vote. so nothing in the bill is radical or without extensive precedent. if you oppose voter fraud in fact it's all very obvious and not controversial at all and that's why it's so popular with voters in texas. but democrats in the state don't oppose voter fraud, nor critically do they believe in multiparty politics, so they stopped the entire process cold. preventing lawmakers from making laws, shutting down the vote, would not seem like a defense of democracy, in fact it would appear to be just the opposite. it would appear to be an assault
5:04 pm
on the very core of democracy, which is the legislature, the people's house. even diabolical vladimir putin never attempted to do that. but according to joe biden, this time, if necessary, sometimes you've got to end democracy in order to save democracy. that is, if you're not a racist. requiring people to prove their identity when they cast the vote for the president is "an unrelenting 21st century jim crow assault." really? how so? biden never explained, but he didn't need to. his bootleggers on cable television jumped into do the talking for him. >> texas democrats taking a major stand for voting rights. it is a dramatic yet effective move that the national democratic party would do well to try and pay attention to. >> leaving their legislative chamber without a quorum was the last best thing they thought they could do to preserve voting rights there and try to defeat the republican voter suppression bill. >> the texas democrats fighting back in the face of republicans'
5:05 pm
very successful voter suppression drive. >> texas democrats fleeing their states in a last-ditch effort to restrict -- a restrictive voting what is the g.o.p. is pushing its assault on the most sacred right as americans, the right to vote. >> tucker: who cares about the last guy, what about the first guy? republican voter suppression act? how exactly do these bills suppress voting precisely? brian williams never told us. he just repeated the talking point he was handed. what a brainless show he has become. so many have, but pay no attention to the debt i'd news anchor telling you the usual lies. no, consider instead the heroes of modern texas, the people saving the vote by stopping the boat! preserving democracy by ending it! here's a picture of them on a charter bus to the private airfield, the fdo, as they say in private equity. they may be smiling in the picture but it's only to mask the pain inside. drinking miller lite but it's not in celebration, it's in solidarity with campesinos
5:06 pm
around the state of texas on whose behalf they were drinking those beers. if the people may not be actual citizens of the united states and may not speak our language or follow our laws, but still somehow have the god-given right to choose your government for you, the right, in other words, to vote democrat whenever they want. so it was an intense moment on that bus, picture che guevara sailing in to bring the revolution to its bloodied climax and it only got more intense when the charter buses arrived at the fdo. one texas lawmaker, a childlike former teacher called james talarico, tweeted about the danger, "just landed in memphis on her way to d.c., thank you all for your well wishes. we left behind our families, or lebovitz, and our beloved texas, but our sacrifice -- i can't read it with a straight face! but our sacrifice is nothing the sacrifice brave americans throughout history to protect the sacred right to vote.
5:07 pm
those sacrifices include drinking miller lite on a private plane over memphis! it was moving. we don't have a lot of photos from within that private plane just like we don't have a lot of paintings from washington's crossing of the delaware. sometimes you have to imagine it but we do have this documentary evidence, this shot and as you can see those people are terrified. they're not taking this trip on a private plane for themselves. they're doing it for democracy, which paradoxically they've just suspended. revolutions are full of bitter litter so mike little ironies like that but we've learned to live without in the name of the greater good. you may be wondering how did all of those lawmakers get on that plane? can you just walk on a plane no? doesn't that require some form of photo i.d.? a racist i.d. card? and wear their masks? are you required to wear a mask on an airplane by federal law? sure you are, in normal times, but when there's a revolution in progress, normal rules are suspended. che guevara never wore a surgical mask, his rifle was his i.d. card.
5:08 pm
and so with these slightly chunky revolutionary heroes. once the per grade from texas finally arrived in the capital city, washington, they were not met with artillery fire or sharpshooters, no, something more daunting. there were television cameras awaiting their arrival. how did they handle this? with the power of song. >> ♪♪ we will overcome ♪ ♪ we will overcome ♪♪ [singing] >> tucker: what happens when a cliche becomes so timeworn that it folds in on itself like a cliche black hole and sucks all of reality into itself? that's what you just saw. but to the untrained eye, the footage we just played might seem a little bit self-aggrandizing. it might seem like those
5:09 pm
lawmakers may be the only ones on earth to appreciate their own bravery and the sound of their own voices, but that's not true. there are still other people in this country who recognize how truly heroic these political leaders are. one texas lawmaker insisted that his fans couldn't wait to see him when he got to washington. "landed safely in d.c. it was wonderful to randomly run into people who recognize me in and applauded what we are doing." none of the people who are visit grossly applauding jean wu appear visible in that sweet but you can rest assured they are out there. they are just out of camera shot. presumably as many fans, his legions of fans, were also applauding as he sat eating lunch in the airport dining area. he documented exactly what he ate in a follow-up tweet just for the historical record. "my first meal as a fugitive. delicious." at some point in the modern era it becomes a little hard to
5:10 pm
distinguish between hero and clinical narcissist. star of tiktok videos, state legislator. but whatever, those distinctions don't mean anything. wu is a hero for eating this croutons. how big of a hero? he wouldn't say, he's a man of modesty obviously but another representative of the state of texas spelled it out for us. according to trey martinez fischer -- cannot name be real? we are going with it. eating salad in an airport is very much like the civil rights leaders of old, crossing the bridge in alabama taking trench and blows to the head, you watch. >> this is the risk we take to stand up for democracy. we are talking about voting rights here. there are people who were beaten with clubs and attacked by dogs and people were murdered to protect the sacred rights. this threat in this finger-pointing by the governor is not going to intimidate all of us. we are strongly united and we want to bring, you know, voting
5:11 pm
rights home to this country. >> tucker: same idea, different era as you would expect. kamala harris wants in on the action. she's been protesting for civil rights since growing up as a child in canada -- sorry, america. since two years old she's been demanding freedom, she said so she announced she's going to meet with these freedom fighters sometimes this week. the governor of texas won't be there, he's promised to arrest them and bring them back to the statehouse if they ever return to texas. are they coming back to texas? no, not until the session is over. so effectively, these freedom fighters, these bottom che guevara fairless, these crosses of the edmund pettus bridge/support lay have shut down the government. that's a you know they are defending the democracy. brit hume covers democracy for a living, fox news 'a senior political analyst, we are happy to have them on sunday. thanks so much for coming on. you're a master of the big picture, you can kind of somethings up in the way most of us can't. when you shutdown democracy, how
5:12 pm
are you saving it? >> well, tucker, first thing i have to notice is there is some video you missed that i wish you had played, the group of those -- the group of those legislators sitting around a campfire in their hotel lobby last night singing kumbaya. >> tucker: [cackles] i don't think we can handle it! >> it's a classic! obviously, tucker, the absurdity of this is obvious on its face. you can't on the one hand shut down the action the elected representatives of the people in the state of texas and then turn around and argue to the nation that you're defending democracy. it's absurd on its face, laughable, really and made the more so by the scene on the airplane with them all smiling massless with the b-sides going and of course the scene on the bus with the case of beer tucked away for their enjoyment on the way up here up to washington. it just -- this is too good to be true. this is precious.
5:13 pm
>> tucker: i have to say it was so nice to take a break and unfortunately the overtones of a looming civil war hummed in the background but i have to ask has a political matter, all of this really turns on the question of voter i.d. should people be required to prove they are who they say they are when they choose our government? it seems like, in this case, republicans have the public on their side. all the polling i have seen shows people want that. >> not only want it but they wanted by massive majorities, maybe up to 80%. it's common sense, obviously, that you shouldn't make it easy for people to cheat by representing themselves as someone they are not and of course when you're mailing out ballots to people to send and for whatever reason instead of showing up to vote on election day, the possibility of fraud is there and so asking people to prove who they are, what you would have to do really if you show up to vote, would seem an obvious step. it's wildly popular and makes perfect common sense and i think the politically speaking to
5:14 pm
oppose it is nuts. it's bound to fail. moreover, tucker, this -- these democrats may be able to hang around washington to be celebrity is among the democrats washington -- nearly everybody lives there -- to the end of the session but all abbott has to do is call another one i get another one, they can't stay on forever so eventually this will pass her. indeed it passed the texas senate, the bill they are combining about past the texas senate, they just don't have a quorum in the house. my guess is it will eventually pass, the accepted and life will go on. >> tucker: yeah. i assume this is about raising money. the president shouldn't talk of a civil war. they always say trump is an extremist, the show has been [indiscernible]. responsible people don't use the phrase "civil war" and less there is actually civil war. why would the president of united states say something like that? >> particularly when that is -- that was such a painful -- a decisive but painful episode in our nations history amounting to tremendous loss of life.
5:15 pm
it was a terrible dark time, a war that i think in the end had to be fought, but to compare a dispute over what security measures should be in place in the state of texas to the civil war seems to me to be sub evident nonsense and it's hard for me to imagine the people out there hearing this wouldn't say what is he talking about? it's just -- look, donald trump is a famous exaggerator. he exaggerated everything. nobody had ever seen anything like it and so on. biden is giving him a run for his money these days. >> tucker: if trump a gun out there and start out by the civil war -- i was supportive of most of what trump did, i would say don't talk like that, -- iti think. great to see you tonight. >> thinks buried >> tucker: defending the police was never a good idea, it turned out to be a worse idea even then we knew it was, it's also extreme and popular but the people who support it aren't trying to convince you, they're

>> tucker: the nation of south africa appears to be in significant trouble tonight. anarchy across the country in the cities and outside the cities. for more was happening right now we go to the political at her at news 24 in south africa, thank you so much for joining us tonight. we are experiencing this mostly on social media, people are seeing videos of what's happening in your country. describe what's going on right now, if you would. >> well, there has been three days of unrelenting looting and violence in areas around johannesburg as well as durban and surrounding areas. of what you see started as protests against the jailing of former president jacob zuma. this was on wednesday last week. by thursday there was sporadic incidences of violence but over the weekend this intensified to
5:22 pm
what the president has now called criminality. dozens of more shopping centers and now even warehouses and factories have been completely looted by thousands of people across the country around these two major economic hubs. what you see is the police completely overburdened, unable to stop these violent and looting scenes that unfolded in the country with the president having to call in the south african national defense force on monday to reinforce efforts by police. there's been 200 people that have been arrested but 72 people have lost their lives so far. >> tucker: so from this
5:23 pm
perspective -- we are playing video of it on the screen right now, and tire shop and being empty, office buildings being looted, as you said, factories burned. it looks like a big part of the economy of the country is being destroyed. >> absolutely. and it is devastating to an economy that was already bruised by covid-19. unemployment, you know, in the region of almost -- an economy was struggling to get off its feet and now this is an added blow, particularly to businesses along the coast. i mean, the situation is so bad in durban that there are concerns around food and medicine security as a result of the looting. when you talk about medicine, there has been concerns around attacks on storage facilities that hold covid-19 vaccines. the president said this would
5:24 pm
really hamper government efforts to fight the pandemic, you know, to give an example, just this evening, the government announced that 633 people died from the covid-19 pandemic and, you know, we are in the grips of the third wave, yet what you see is thousands and thousands of people going out in the streets looting anything from tvs to fridges. >> tucker: what a tragedy, and a complex story, we will be on it. qaanitah hunter, i appreciate you coming on tonight, thank you so much. so you just saw pictures of what can happen when no one is enforcing the law and when the mob rules. that has been the case on a much smaller scale in parts of this country for more than a year now, defunding the police is the term they apply. it's been a disaster. it's also deeply unpopular with voters of all kinds.
5:25 pm
82% of americans oppose defunding the police, but there are still some activists who are committed to it regardless of what the public wants in the name of democracy of course. the police are racist, we must eliminate them. what's interesting is what that looks like up close. so in oakland, california, on saturday, some of those same antiracist activists shouted down a group of black damage traders who were out in public showing support for police officers. what a picture this was, watch. >> white privilege is standing here! [indiscernible] you don't have a right to be here! >> people are dying in the streets every day at the hands of the police! >> that's a lie! there are not hundreds of people [indiscernible] hands of police this year! what do you have against safety in oakland? what you have against stopping the violence? we are trying to save our people! we are trying to save our
5:26 pm
people! you are not our people! [bleep]! >> tucker: hey, black people, how dare you support the police! beyond belief i'm a really, but it's real. republican member of congress from the state of utah and we are happy to have him with us tonight. congressman i'm a thanks so much for coming on. >> thank you for having me. >> tucker: that video kind of tells you a lot of at the current state of our political conversation, what's your reaction to it? >> i think it's import that we recognize that this is not by accident. you know, the culture marxists, what they thrive on is chaos, personal chaos, people being miserable, people living in fear. if you live in fear you can't run a business, you can't old your, build your family, spirituality goes out the window and that's how they win. so we've seen this last year, we've seen it around oakland, all these places that blacks and hispanics are being heard most
5:27 pm
bicultural marxists who care less. they are regardless, they could care less about the property, they hate the nuclear family. that's what we are up against and recognize that and really stand up for our judeo-christian values. >> tucker: here right, their godless, that is exactly right. i never talk like that, but it's absolutely true. when you say that, how do people respond? >> there are those who get it. most americans get it. they might not speak as strong as i do, but they get it and then those who are trying to destroy our country, they hate what i'm saying, so we just have to have the courage -- i will talk very simply growing up, love god, country, family, respect women in authority and we got it made. underneath that, the common denominator is courage. we need to have courage. so americans know what we're up against. we need to fight against this evil ideology that's trying to destroy us and divide us and we can do that no matter what we are part of, let's make our country great brackets, we need to fight against evil to get
5:28 pm
that done. >> tucker: god, family, country, respect for women at authority and you're good to go. i would say that's right. congressman burgess owens, great to see you tonight, thank you. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: we hate to add to the growing list of problems besetting our great nation but supersized goldfish are suddenly a big problem in our water supply. supersized goldfish. weird, but true. we've got details, naturally, next. ♪ ♪

>> tucker: how biblical are the plagues we are facing these days? well, put it this way, monster goldfish are now a threat to one town in the midwest. the city of burnsville, minnesota, just south of minneapolis says people are dumping pet goldfish into lakes and ponds. they don't expect this will be a problem, but it is. according to officials, the fish "grow bigger than you think and contribute to poor water quality by mucking up the bottom sediments and uprooting plants." could this be true?
5:34 pm
we decided to find out. an expert on goldfish behavior, works for the zoo miami, the goodwill and best hitter and we're happy to have him on tonight. ron, thanks so much for coming on. give us a sense of the goldfish threat not just in the southern suburbs of minneapolis, but around this country. >> well, you know, goldfish are common pet. they are very hardy fish which is why you see them at carnivals and fairs and things like that. people sometimes outgrow them or release them and they let them go and they think what's going to happen. understand goldfish are basically glorified carp. goldfish and koi. what i saw in the picture, what zach i thought is probably a big coy, very similar to goldfish but they are all types of carp. and if you look at this country, karp has caused millions and millions of destructions. you going you to come you see videos of them jumping into boats, people can't even get out into the water because of them, how much they can destroy an environment. you take that into consideration, that goldfish are basically a fancy kind of carp, there's potential there for some
5:35 pm
real damage. >> tucker: so what you're saying is if you have it safer to send them to a fraternity house to be consumed rather than put them in the local water supply. >> [laughs] of >> tucker: for example. >> better than putting them in the local water supply. >> tucker: that makes total sense -- i don't want to scare our viewers but i want to bring them the news, how big can a goldfish got? >> the standard goldfish, the kind you see in the fair are only about ten or 12 inches but the coy can get to be like 3 feet and like you said when you open the piece, they are huge ground feeders, mock feeders, they will eat all the vegetation, they will take the oxygen out of the water, they will make it unlivable for many other species of fish which they phase out and it totally destroys the environment so they have the potential of being really -- listen, it's never a good idea to put a nonnative animal into a native space. fish, bird, reptile, anything. >> tucker: do we faced the threat from turtles and hamsters too wars that pretty much just an aquatic threat? >> [laughs] you know, rodents, if they get out, there are -- there are
5:36 pm
many -- force and we have a lot of hawks and cats and birds of prey to put that imbalance. >> tucker: i wouldn't want to see a 3-foot long gerbil at all. you are welcome anytime to warn us of that impending disaster. thanks for coming on today. >> thank you, tucker, take care. >> tucker: the biden administration has spent months now touting a company called pro-terror. they tell us poterba is a key part of the new green infrastructure. they made buses. what's interesting is they don't seem to have a very good record of producing electric buses. according to "the washington free beacon," one city in wisconsin paid $1.5 million for two buses back in 2018 but never got the buses. so why is the administration promoting this one specific company? we don't know for sure, but one possibility is that jennifer granholm, the secretary of energy, recently owned more than a million dollars of stock in
5:37 pm
that company. she only sold after reporting what matthew foley, who is with "the washington free beacon" and joins us now. thanks so much for coming on. how could the secretary of energy owns stock in a green energy company? >> tucker, thank you so much for having me on. it's green energy graft, plain and simple. she owned millions of dollars of stock in proterra even though biden put her in charge of running the nation's electric vehicle battery supplies back in february. they promoted it repeatedly, biden visited it, kamala visited, the state apart and hosted the cao and no one cared. you're one of the few journalists who actually cares about the scandal that has all hallmarks of corruption that normal people would care about. >> tucker: so if you're promoting a brand-new technology, in a lot of cases unproven technology, and that goes for all parts of the new energy grid they are telling us we need to build, you're going to be promoting companies that are not established companies, so wouldn't rule 1b nobody promoting those companies can have any shares in this
5:38 pm
company's? that seems really obvious. >> you would think so and remember the outcry when ivanka trump held up the can of beans but granholm has made a millions of dollars promoting a company she was on the board of. she quit the board after her confirmation but she continues to not even tell us who she sold the stock too. i asked the energy to part and again today who was the undisclosed buyer who paid her a net profit of $1.6 million for 240,000 nonpublic shares of proterra? we have absolutely no idea who bought her stock and you're right, it's pretty insane and yet no one really seems to care because i think everyone thinks green energy is a good thing and clearly there can be no corruption from the by demonstration, but both of those things aren't true. >> tucker: may i ask you a quick question? has no skills, i don't think she's ever done anything. i'm not being mean -- a lot of people have never done anything but she's especially never done anything. why would you be on the board of an energy company?
5:39 pm
>> well, she was the governor of michigan and we can account for -- it's a fair point. she was a cnn contributor. she was a media matters contributor and she was on the board of proterra. i think you're making the point here that proterra, this tiny company, is one of the best connected companies i've seen. its investors include the mega donor family, obviously use to include jennifer granholm as an advance investor. this tiny company is slowly sort of making it way to the biden advisors and board members have spoken with the department of defense, the state department, gina mccarthy, obviously biden himself. it's insane and as we were saying earlier, no one really seems to care except you, me, and a couple of others. >> tucker: thank you for during this supporting. i mean, you do the reporting period i read it and was amazed by it, keep it up. thank you. >> thank you so much, have a good night. >> tucker: you too. the by demonstration is now applauding the destruction of property it considers offensive. another way of putting it,
5:40 pm
