>> sean: villains of the day, prince harry and meghan are back, a whopping $695 by an environmental charity for their "enlightened decision" to limit their family to two children. okay, congratulations. please set your dvr, never miss an episode bureau in the meantime, let not your hearts be troubled, laura ingraham, all right, hit me with whatevere bringing tonight. there is always something, whatever it is. >> laura: you had a lovely show tonight. [laughter] it was a lovely presentation. no, i enjoyed -- i enjoyed the cuba story. i enjoyed sara carter, who i always loved. you know, i can't -- larry elder, you know, mutual friend. you were kind of cozying up to caitlyn jenner, though, as i remember. are you up to a little tension there? a little push and pull?
7:01 pm
>> sean: you know, all you had to do was make my life miserable. >> laura: yeah. >> sean: i'm trying to stay out of trouble, do a good show, focus on my work every day. i will tell you, i want newsom out of there. i would like the people of california to be free, but what do i know? >> laura: well, new england has to save itself, my home state of connecticut, massachusetts -- they have to save themselves. >> sean: getting out of this hell hole of new york, that's all i can say. >> laura: all right, hannity, awesome show. i am laura ingraham, this is "the ingraham angle" from washington. a 2019 presentation by the former head of the national council for social studies may be the forerunner to what we know now as crtv. well, we got our hands on the document and are going to bring details you will not see anyone else. but first, the lame-esd show on earth -- not us, by the way -- that is the focus of tonight "angle."
7:02 pm
these are the musical now, ever since the ringling brothers circus shut down after 146 years in business, there hasn't really been anything close to replacing it. the excitement, or the drama, but today, biden tried to fill that void when he stepped on stage in philadelphia. >> the assault on free and fair elections is just such a threat, literally, we are facing the most significant test of our democracy since the civil war. that's not hyperbole. since the civil war. confederates, back then, never breached the capital, as interactionist did on january the 6th. >> laura: perhaps he should consult merriam-webster on the meaning of "hyperbole." it's an assault on democracy to allow an extra hour of required early voting in texas? 2-3 hours longer, by the way, then joe's home state of
7:03 pm
delaware. the white house invited fraudster al sharpton and a assorted racial activist to participate in its voting rights performance in philadelphia. now, it was kind of an odd choice of venue given it was a place where democrats believe all those white racist men got together during the racist constitutional convention. president biden spoke for 25 minutes or so and told about the same number of lies about the suppose it impediments to voting in the united states, all of course, created or tolerated by republicans. >> in texas, for example, republican legislature wants to allow partisan poll watchers to intimidate voters and imperil -- impartial poll workers. they want voters to -- be in a position where they wonder who is watching them or intimidate them, to wait longer to vote, they want to make it so hard and
7:04 pm
convenient that they hope people don't vote at all. >> laura: inconvenient to cheating, mr. president. now, i believe i counted four or maybe five lies there, before the the record, texas legislator gave poll watchers free movement, except of course contrary to what biden alleged, not when voters are filling out ballots. and forcing poll watchers to stand at such a distance that they couldn't reasonably observe the process would be a criminal offense. you've got to have eyes on potential cheating. now, this texas proposal makes total sense given what happened in some states last november. remember poll watchers who were kept on the other side of the room, behind a rope? unable to conduct any meaningful oversight. that can't happen. but as usual, liberals are at war with the facts. joe is just reading whatever script his writers handed him, desperately trying to get people to step into their.
7:05 pm
>> state legislators want to make it harder for you to vote, and if you vote, they want to be able to tell you your vote doesn't count, for any reason they make up. >> laura: so dramatic. also totally false, as we pointed out last week. the texas bills expand voting hours for registered voters and lower the population threshold needed for counties to provide additional early voting hours. low, terrible. now, notice that none of these democrats ever mentioned the actual, specifics of the legislation. well, we know why because to do so would expose their phony complaints. i want to get right to the point here. democrats want to rig every election going forward to make it nearly impossible for a conservative to win again. they are now effectively arguing that the very voting rules that delivered two two-term victories for bill clinton and barack obama are essentially
7:06 pm
just like jim crow 2.0. there weren't months of early voting back then. there was no flood of unsolicited mail-in ballot applications arriving at your home, no rampant ballot harvesting. obviously, no same-day voter registration fee and yet, democrats somehow still managed to win under those old rules. about five and a half years after obama left office, democrats are seeing their edge with minority voters starting to wane. more hispanics, entrepreneurial and optimistic, are recognizing the left-wing war against prosperity. black men are also beginning to recognize that liberal pandering doesn't help their kids' education or job prospects. these trendlines are terrible for democrats. they know that their policies aren't going to deliver results to entry level working-class americans. not in urban areas, not anywhere. so this leaves them really with
7:07 pm
only one option and, in their mind, which is to promote racial fearmongering and pretty much everything around them. so we already know what they are doing in our schools, to our workplaces, the military, even to now our system of voting. >> trying, not only targeting people of color, they are targeting voters of all races and backgrounds. just with a simple target. who did not vote for them? that's the target. it's hard to be clear just how critical this is. it is simply unconscionable. >> laura: i love how he says things slowly for emphasis and tries to -- now what is unconscionable is to use your bully pulpit to lie about race, to talk down to blacks and hispanics, and to imply that they are not savvy enough somehow to make a photocopy of their own i.d., madam vice president. the fact is, democrats used
7:08 pm
covid to change the way we all voted. all along, with the intent of making those new rules permanent. the new voting normal. with states getting wise, though, to their sleight-of-hand, liberals are growing more desperate and sloppy. the act is just not that convincing anymore. >> we are going to face another test in 2022, a new wave of unprecedented voters, raw and sustained election subversion. have to prepare now. as i've said time and again, no matter what, you can never stop the american people from voting. >> laura: now, if they couldn't start harvesting ballots right now, 42022 and 2024, they would. they've been upfront about wanting to eliminate all voter i.d. requirements, which they argue are inherently racist. they even want to prevent the regular scrubbing of dead voters or voters who moved from the
7:09 pm
roll. they did that, remember, in florida and georgia, and you would think police or fire and water cannons at voters headed to the polls, the way they described it. so as usual, democrats, they are going for stunts over substance. to get you to believe the fantasy that voters i.d. is just as discriminatory as poll taxes and literacy tests, they have to drown you in hype and phony emotion, complete with their own score. but singing on key is, of course, optional. >> ♪♪ we will overcome ♪ ♪ we will overcome ♪ ♪ we will overcome ♪ ♪ deep in our hearts ♪ ♪ i do believe ♪ ♪ we will overcome ♪♪ >> laura: i don't think they advanced to the next round.
7:10 pm
and as of the day wore on, the performances grew lamer. >> all they are trying to do is suppress the vote and encumber usually people that aren't as economically well off, people that are of color, and that is what the state of texas is starting to look like. it is startg to look a little too colorful for the republicans. >> laura: sorry, jasmine, but in texas, the g.o.p. expanded its support among latinos periods. now, we know what the left prefers. they want rules that give them unlimited time to count and deliver votes, days, weeks, and even months after the polls closed. therefore, the people act they were touting today, is more accurately described as for the liberals act. it would mandate same-day or automatic voter registration, which obviously opens up the door to rampant fraud possibilities and vote by mail would be a staple.
7:11 pm
they even want to force the supreme court to change its ethics rules if they end up hearing any election challenge. so, fast-forward now, with you, to the day after the 2022 election, and republicans have, let's say, retaken the house, may be added a few senate seats. democrats, who railed against trump for not accepting the outcome of the last election, will, i promise you, spend the next two years claiming the midterms were illegitimate. then, we'll get the same tired acts leading up to 2024. the three-ring circus, it was only exciting when the talent could deliver oohs and ahhs, but the democrats have become one big, overpriced clown show, hardly worth our high price of admission, and that is the angle. here now is forrest cooper,
7:12 pm
dinesh d'souza, and harmeet dhillon, cochair of the republican national lawyers association. horace, the justification for buying into these texas dems, who fled to mommy and daddy in d.c., is the dop just want to disenfranchise black and brown voters. is there any evidence of that happening anywhere, but especially where you are in texas? >> wc fills once said there was a sucker born every day, and apparently, our president believes that he can tell some of the boldest, baseless lies and that people are going to buy it. here is a true fact: when he was vice president, they prosecuted more voter fraud cases than they did income tax fraud cases. they prosecuted more voter fraud cases then they did bank fraud
7:13 pm
cases. now, are we going to conclude, as they tried to imply, that the number of prosecutions tells us about the seriousness of the violation? everyone knows that in texas, in 2020, more blacks voted for conservatives than republicans, more latinos voted for conservatives than republicans. in fact, the legislature picked up seats among the right, rather than losing seats. there is no claim whatsoever -- no truth whatsoever to this claim. >> laura: no, they are freaking out because they are losing the monopoly on the minority vote. if that goes down, they are finished, they are finished as a party. dinesh, the media could have fact-checked today's speech, but instead it went like this. >> that's is most -- correct me if i'm wrong -- both some defense of voting rights thus far. >> can't imagine a stronger,
7:14 pm
more robust speech. >> the oratory was brilliant. the emotion was palpable. >> this speech was certainly the most passionate of this presidency. >> laura: dinesh, i don't think nicole wallace understands that if the hr 1 was in effect in the year 2000, she wouldn't be hosting a show on msnbc because george bush wouldn't have been elected president. >> well, you know, the biden speech was such a crazy uncle emerges from the basement routine. it was full of such exaggerations and absurdities, the comparisons to the confederacy, the civil war, i mean, a war in which 600,000 people died is being compared to voter i.d. checking. i think biden, in a way, missed a huge opportunity. because what i think he needed to do is lay out the argument and say "look, we need to have laws that on the one hand make it easier to vote, but harder to cheat." i mean, presumably, that is going to be the criteria for any
7:15 pm
decent voter integrity law. now, he needed to go down the laws one by one starting with voter i.d. and show, for example, make the case that voter i.d., for example, makes it harder to vote. the same voter i.d. that people can obtain in every other sphere of life, apparently, is not available when it comes to voting, but voter i.d. does make it harder to cheat, but for the democrats, it's all about making it easier to vote, and they pay no attention to the cheating issue, presumably because they believe the cheating is part of what they need to get them to the finish line. >> laura: yeah, well, that is why they want do not want the pl watchers to actually have the ability to watch, they want to keep them behind, you know, the roofline. they don't want them to see what is going on. that became obvious today. harmeet, the frauds in texas had an interesting explanation for their need for private aviation to get to d.c. >> when you break a quorum, you want to be successful, so ever
7:16 pm
wants to see 51, 52, 53 emma cuts on the same plane. number two, to get a flight out of town across the state, you need to fly privately, no fancy coaches, just a regular plane that moved us from one state to another. >> laura: harmeet, another texas dems said the caucus paid for it, any potential ethical issues here? >> well, absolutely, and we do not know the timing of the decision for the caucus to pay for it, if that is even true. yesterday's news report takes a look at the number on the plane, traces it to a hedge fund magnate out of nevada who represents the country of lebanon as a consul general, so you have to ask the question, what is he expecting in exchange for his -- did they decide to raise money and pay him back after this became a national scandal? also, who is paying for the hotel rooms in d.c.? they could use some slimming lessons, too, by the way, and
7:17 pm
who is paying for food and drink, and miller lite, who sprung for the class e miller lite they had on board, as well? laura, this whole thing stinks, and it would be better if taxpayers were paying for it because it would be accountable. we don't know what dark money forces are paying for this are what they are expecting in return, so this is corrupt, stinks, and flies in the face of the fact that 78% of voters in the united states support voter i.d., clean voter rolls, verification, bipartisan observers, and chain of custody. 78%. is not even close. so these people are being hysterical over nothing and they are claiming if joe biden was next going to say that requiring people to vote in the district they registered in his like -- it's completely unbelievable, and they've lost all credibility. >> laura: yeah, horace, all of this kind of brings together the problem with education in the country, if you can compare, as dinesh said, the civil war to
7:18 pm
voter i.d. or any of these crises in american history, january 6th to the civil war, but if people don't know history, then they might sit on social media going "oh, wow, this is terrible." it again comes back full circle to making sure people understand the truth about our incredible country and how amazing it is that we arrived at this point in time, given everything we've been through. >> well, absolutely, that is correct, that we really, really have a treasure and it is incumbent upon each and every one of us to make sure that our brothers and sisters remember, understand, and revere, but it's also very, very disappointing when our president puts the d in demagogue and is willing to say these kinds of things. normally, if you have some of these baseless claims that you
7:19 pm
would like to put out, you get someone from the periphery to bring those out. the president of the united states is supposed to be above that. and that's what's really, really shameful about it. >> laura: no. dinesh, he had to prove his bona fides to the sharpton crowd, crowing about how biden stepped up to the plate today, yes or no? >> absolutely, and if i can make a point -- >> laura: real quick. >> praising the bravery of the texas democrats, but the texas democrats are subverting a democratic process. there is a legitimate republican majority in the state. biden himself said the minority party needs to patiently acquiesce in the will of the majority. that is not being done in texas. >> laura: no. panel, thank you. and his joe biden's rhetoric laying the groundwork for criminality across the country and could it get worse? heather macdonald has thoughts on that. plus, critics have targeted our covid commentary in recent days. we will explain how once again we are proven right, stay there,

in video released today from new york city, a man receives second degree burns after being doused by scalding liquid. the suspect laughed as he ran away. in oakland, california, a thief smashed a car window, climbed in, stole a woman's purse and backpack, all while she was stuck in traffic in the middle of the day. in washington, d.c., three young girls, ages 12, 14, and 16, were arrested for an attempted carjacking after allegedly using a taser on the driver. only one of them is now facing charges. yet another example of the scourge of light touch policing. but instead of pushing a course correction here, biden is letting the agitators drive the conversation. if that continues, it will not take much to reignite the bloodied riots we saw last summer, especially with rhetoric about the voting we just covered in the previous segment. joining me now was heather mac donald, senior fellow at the manhattan institute, author of the war on cops that predicted much of
7:26 pm
this. heather, on the lauren graham podcast today, you said that you believe we are already seeing, i think you said slow motion riots, going on across the country, explain that, please. >> you have massive looting going on. year of organized gangs that are running into stores, grabbing all the merchandise they can get, escaping and getaway cars, you have the assaults on asians, the assaults on elderly, the assaults on jews, mostly from people from the inner-city. none of this is being acknowledged by the democratic party, so you have now really a breakdown of law and order. the press cannot cover it, they are not covering it, but on a daily basis, the degree of assault that i believe i really hate crimes, but you're not allowed to talk about it when a certain race of offender is going on, that is a slow motion riots. you have -- anarchy is coming into our cities now thanks to

7:28 pm
to go, heather? >> well, consistency is not the democrats strong point. it's too late. biden and lori lightfoot want to refund the police all they want, they are not going to be able to do it. we are in a recruiting crisis. people have been leaving from officers leaving in droves, retirements up 45%, resignations up 18%, and police officers are telling everybody, don't even think of joining this profession. ambush assaults on officers are up 91% this year. officers are cursed at, resisted arrest, every time they get out of their cars now on a regular basis. and so, the democrats are furiously backpedaling and trying to present themselves as the pro-police party. is not going to work and not going to for the american public and it's not going to bring real substance and law and order back to the city unless they start retracting their long history of anti-cop statements and say actually, we believe the cops are doing the best they
7:29 pm
can, they are the police, they are the government agency most dedicated to protecting black lives. >> laura: heather, the videos are disturbing. these stories get worse and worse. i think there is blood on their hands. they started this, and it continues. heather, thank you. >> confederates, back then, never breached the capital as insurrectionist did on january the 6th. i'm not saying this to alarm you. i am saying this because you should be alarmed. >> laura: i guess we should be alarmed by the skyrocketing crimes in cities across the country, because that is nos doj are focused on. they are now coming down on january 6th attendees. it seems like they are picking up the pace of what some are saying is harassment, most of whom were nonviolent. and i remember these people haven't even been convicted of a crime, some have been held for months since january, while repeatedly being denied bail
7:30 pm
since they could pose potential future threats. others reportedly in sales for 23 hours a day. joining me now's julie kelly, senior leader for american greatness who has been the only journalist staying on this story. julie, do even know how many people they are holding and on what basis? >> so, as far as people who are being detained in washington, d.c., jails, now this is a jail that was set up specifically to hold trump supporters, january 6th protesters, as you said, they are people who have been there , now six months and counting. i believe last count, there is more than three dozen, with more on the way, and the government continues -- joe biden's justice department continues to take pretrial detention for nonviolent offenders. i listened to a hearing today, a federal judge actually denied the government's pretrial motion because this certain defendant
7:31 pm
had not committed any violent crimes, but to your point, laura, they are holding people behind bars for months on end. these trials will not start until early next year. and they are doing it before their trial has even started, before they even have a trial date. they are punishing trump supporters, keeping them behind bars. you will be happy to know, maybe heather mac donald will be happy to know that the fbi took an entire crime family off the streets in texas today, arresting a family of five for trespassing and creating and ticketing in the capital, trying to destroy their lives. so the dichotomy just keeps getting darker and broader every single day, and this justice department and fbi hunts down americans who protested against joe biden on january 6th, while our cities, as you say -- >> laura: but julie, i want everyone to understand this tonight. to me, this is much like the hyperbole and the racial fearmongering over legitimate
7:32 pm
voter integrity rules and laws. because that's a big set up for protesting the election in 2022 and 2024, in my view. i think they know they are going to lose. it has to be all illegitimate. in this case, they want to send a message. if you think you are going to petition the biden administration or show up at any great rallies, we are going to have our drones or whatever -- identify you, you are going to be in a database, you might not be able to get on a plane. i think they are trying to intimidate people away from exercising their first amendment rights, that's what i think is, in part, going on here, beyond any criminality which should be punished obviously on january 6th. >> right, it is a terror campaign, now they are rounding up the families to send a message. they make this family, their teachers, because their children, we confirmed their identity, listening to another hearing today, a man, as you know, who was caught with legos, he now has fbi agents confiscating lego sets as
