tv Tucker Carlson Tonight FOX News July 22, 2021 10:00pm-11:00pm PDT
the campaign against misinformation has experienced serious setbacks. thousands of americans died. the khmer in chief has just begun to fight. going forward, the first movement will be suspended until further no diss -- notice. even in your private text messages, joe biden will summarily execute misinformation. he will hunt it down and kill it himself. this is total war. all of us are going to have to make sacrifices in this war. question is, what does the enemy look like? to this point, no one in authorities provided a clear description of misinformation. the white house still has not defined what it is and what it looks like, like extremism and white supremacy. misinformation is an elastic and mysterious term for it like the viacom, it appears from
like theo vietcong, it appears from nowhere. and the federal agencies in washington, there is a working definition for this information. if any criticism of the joe biden administration or its policies. that's what we are fighting against. like all patriotic media in wartime, cable news networks are fully on board with this stuff. last night, cnn and posted a video to its website from something called a presidential town hall, leading the front for this war. the capture in this video reads this way, "the president textiles vaccine misinformation." tackle it he did. watch joe biden wrestle miss information to the ground and it like that bad girl it is. >> just like the other question is illogical and i'm not being solicitous, but you are always straight up with what you are doing. the question is whether or not we should be in a position where
why can't the experts say, we know that this virus is -- it's goingus to be, excuse me, we knw why all the drugs are not temporarily. i expect that to occur quickly. >> you mean for the fda? >> for the fda. >> tucker: yeah. "experts say it." you can imagine the chaos behind the scenes in theha pivotal moments. "the red fox trot quietly in midnight. code word. in other words, abort, abort! within seconds, seconds that move really slowly, don lemon memorized a safe word. a hushed silence descended in
cnn. beads of sweat dropped on top of the pop tarts. milliseconds felt like hours. joe biden regain consciousness down my consciousness. yes, the fda! crisis averted. a lot of moments like that last night. don lemon was very close time at the time asking about the fda, but time and time again he held off. he had to. the audience might have noticed something was up. cnn had no choice but to let the commander-in-chief keep talking as he did in this moment he would go to my state, everyone can tell me where the best possible is played here in the city. you know where it is. you know where the best
ballplayers are. you know where they are. >> tucker: they know where they are. corn pop nose. corn pop knows who can hit the free throws. corn pop loves basketball. kept waiting for don lemon -- it was really compelling television. dthose are much closer to our goal which is to understand what the biden administration means by the term misinformation. then we came across this clip. we kept watching. and we understood. here is joe biden describing the benefit of vaccinations. >> the various shots people are getting now cover that. you are okay. you are not going to get covid if you have these vaccinations. >> tucker: finally! a definition. he doesn't tell us, he shows us. he leads by example.
that's what misinformation looks like. "you aren't going to get covid if you have these vaccinations" says the president of united states. how did those vaccinated in texas -- why was kamala was rushed to walter reed medical center if vaccinated people cannot get covid but why are the permissible companies telling us it's in fact possible to get covid after you have been vaccinated? so why would joe biden tell us the exact opposite? now you know why. he's showing us what misinformation is. like a good leader, he is, as they say. here are for example a question from a restaurant owner who was in the audience last night. he asked what the government was going to do to save small businesses like his. a pressing question for him and the millions of others. the past six weeks, the biden administration sent out millions in checks and the checks have kept able-bodied adult at home and not working and also cause
inflation to spike. both of those were a disaster for small business. listen carefully as joe biden explains why he's doingas this. >> we are looking to hire more every day as we try to restart ourst restaurant business. the entire industry, amongst other industries, continued to struggle to find employees. how do you in a biden in the administration plan to incentivize those who have not returned toe work yet. hiring is our top priority right now. >> two things. if you noticed, we kept it open. it's a matter of... people deciding now that they have opportunities to do other things come out and the shortage of employees, people looking to omake more money at a bargain. and so, your business, the tourist business is really trying to be in a binder for a while.
>> tucker: just so you understand, it wasn't the government that closed small businesses last year, including thousands of restaurants. if you notice, we kept them open. oh... it's the opposite of what you thought. you thought governors, them credit governors come or shutting down restaurants -- no, we kept them open. the entire town hall was like that. it was misinformation on parade. at one point, joe biden referred to laws against voter fraud like you have to showw your i.d. to vote, as "jim crow on steroids" you're more segregated water fountains, restaurants, bigger fire hoses? it's on steroids expect no one asked him. later joe biden explained, this is news to criminologists across the world, the recent crime rates, murder rates are up in our cities isn't that parents aren't supervising their kids on the street, wasn't that they
were shooting each other over tennis shoes, disputing something you need to remember, not that the moral fabric of the country is collapsing in on itself, nothing to do with the fact that democrats let violent criminals out of jail using the pretext of covid, prosecutors defended by george soros refusing to put anyone back into jail -- nothing to do with any of that! do you know what's causing all the murders? the gun stores. the gun stores are causing all the murders more clearly they have t more power but more than enough they want to show you what misinformation -- makes the person who tells it moreel powerful. watch joe biden explain that violence is caused by gun stores, he's going to shut them all down. >> what happens is i've gotten atf, alcohol, tobacco, and firearms, i have them increase their budget and i increase ther
capacity including with the justice department come up to go after the gun shops that are not abiding by the law of doing background checks. my point is all across the country, it's not because the gunshots in the cities are selling these guns. they are either shadow gun dealers or gun shops that are not abiding by the law. so we are going to do major investigation to shut those guys down for what they are doing, selling these weapons. >> tucker: okay. because joe biden's party is so mismanaged with american cities for the last 60 years that children are murdering each other on the sidewalk andnd no e isd doing anything about it because the police have been defunded, thanks for agitation from joe biden's voters, your second limit rights are suspended to resuspended your first minute rights last week igand now your second commitment rights are to god and too.
joe biden is working his way systematically through the entire bill of rights, right by right. it'll be long before they are all gone. relics of an antique race of society who believe in limits on political control. it's a sad end of an era. but it's disinformation. you have no choice. a couple of weeks ago, we told you that there is in fact evidence that people working for the fbi reporting directly to tthe government in the crowd at the capitol in january 6th and some of them had been encouraging but as a means to commit crimes. we have proof that it actually happened. we will tell you what it is and speak to someone who was involved after the break.

the fbi sensibly orchestrated crimes for which americans were ultimately arrested and imprisoned. as we told you last night, that very thing just happened in the state of michigan before theon last election. a publicized attempt to kidnap governor gretchen whitmer was not what it seemed to be. as we now learned according to an account from buzzfeed news, majority of those plotters were in fact reporting to the fbi. there's a name for that. it was a set up, and it was leveraged by the joe biden presidential campaign for political advantage. given all of that, we asked the obvious question. did anything similar happened january 6th? we aren't saying the entire thing was orchestrated by the fbi. but is it possible that some of the people there were actually reporting to the fbi and encouraged as we said others to connect crimes? that's an entirely fair question. asking come of the usual propaganda in the news media
announces with maximum hysteria with -- we were right to ask those questions. we'll show you why. mark abraham is a 32-year-old-o veteran who served in iraq. he is a federal agent, worked for the drug enforcement agency, the dea. he said he went to the capitol i that way because he wasn't invited by an fbi informant, a man he had known in iraq. we reached out to that man, we went to the protest with her he denied he encouraged anyone to breakou the law, but that man needed to know that he was an fbi informant. he confirmed that he invited mark to the protest. he says that the two of them stood outside the building, the fbi informant turned to him and strongly encouraged him to enter the capitol building. he knew that was illegal so he refused to do it.
he did not destroy property, he did not brandish his dea weapon, did not commit any violence of any kind paved repeatedly remarked that he disapproved of the rioting he saw at the the ad capitol. we know that he did because he said so on contemporary us video standing on political protest in his nation's capital. he flew to a commercial flight and on his flight he carried his sidearm which is legal. the feds knew about it because he was on a plane. but then things took a bizarre and stunning turn. the dea fired from his job, when he came on this show to tell that story, joe biden's charged him with a number of
felonies, section 50104, step on or climb on any stats who see other architecture features or any trees, shrubs, or terms and capital grounds. this is a grotesque and shocking story, but it is all. joins us now along with his attorney. thank you both for joining us. first to you, as the attorney and, it's hard to see based on the facts and the 16 page charging document that we have read, what exactly the crime is here that would justify 15 years in prison. >> to me, we have a department of justice seeking quantity oven quality. i don't see any crime here, the crime you describes injuries to property. no person was injured, no
violence was committed. didn't enter or breach capitol grounds whatsoever and we intend to defeat all the charges in short order. >> tucker: having read it, not even i can see an allegation of a crime i can see, 15 years in the charging documents. mark, thank you very much for coming on. i v want to be clear about one thing. the man who invited you to this event is a long time fbi informant, he confirmed that to us. a friend of yours, may still be a friend of yours. while you were there, he encourage you to breach the capitol, is that correct? >> that's correct i think he asked me to go with him to protect them and document. both he and i were seeking to protect the public that day. we went there with the intention of seeking those who wish to do our government harm to stop them and to protect those who peacefully protest. while i was there as well, i
walked up to the fbi s.w.a.t. team, a team that courageously entered that building and rescued the capitol building and offered assistance tonc them. individuals on that team have my personal phone number. yes, i was carrying my firearm because i was credentialed dea agent. i'm expected to. my brother is a credentialed fbi agent and he was carrying a firearm. everyone was safer that day because both of us had our firearms. i do not think the informant i brought to the rally that day was malicious or trying to entrap me in any way, shape, or form. but i think we are just trying to do the best he could with what we had. it was chaos. we went there with the intention to protect the public. >> tucker: the fbi knew that he was there. they could see that he knew he was there and we will let our viewers reach their own conclusions on that basis. do you believe there are many
other people in the crowd that day who had made contact with the fbi? >> not that i have seen. but again, i went there with the intention to protect the public. both me and my brother went there with the intention to protect the public. >> tucker: so since you are not being accused of going into the capital, not being accused of brandishing a firearm, of hurting anybody, breaking anything come of the phasing property, spray painting monuments, which is very common in washington, why exactly are you facing 15 years in prison from the biden justice department, do you believe? >>ar i don't know. i love my country and i love my freedom and for the first time in my life i've had my freedom taken away from me. i was in jail this week. while i was in jail i had a lot of time to think.
it's just very sad. what i was going through doesn't even compare to what my cuban brothers and sisters have been going through in cuba for 60 years of oppression. and so i just... it's just sad -- >> tucker: this isn't supposed to be cuba. that's the difference. this is united states of america and the whole point of serving in the army and you have done that and being a federal agent, and millions of you have done that as well, is to protect the right of american citizens to go to political rallies the regime disagrees with, but it seems that you're facing 15 years in prison for doing that. what does that mean to you? i feel like my rights have been violated severely. i went to court in handcuffs. it was tough. it's sadus to see the state of r nation. i love my country. i have no intention of hurting anyone or going in that capitol building, nor did i that day. attending that rally was not a
legal immoral or unethical in any way. at the riot that ensued from the capitol building, the destruction of property, assault on police officers, that is, i they'll make up for that. i'm expected to turn in my firearm because of felonies that happened in front of me, i can stop that. i'm expected to stop that. >> of course. we've talked to a number of them last week. you carry your weapon with you, you are a sworn federal agent. it'll be interesting to the intuition of our democracy of the people in power in congress would do anything about this. is there any recourse other than to go through this trap? >> certainly once the charges terminate, we can seek malicious prosecution. and so doese mr. abraham that this is a reach by the department of justice and there really are no crimes to be
usalleged or proven at the pleny hearing at september 20th, they'll have to prove by probable cause that a crime was committed. we don't believe they will pass the first prong and there's no crime that's been alleged and we believe we will defeat the charges. >> tucker: i've got to ask you finally, market, we are seeing k million of people break our laws to come across a southern border. watch an entire year people aret tearing down federal property, statues, burning courthouses, leading cities. you kneeled on a federal monuments. were you aware at the time that they biden justice department will put you in prison 15 years for doing that? >> i was not. >> tucker: you stood too -- i'm sorry. i correct my description. that's one of the scariest things i've seen in a long time and maybee the fbi can answer a few questions about this immediately. i appreciate you coming on. godspeed to you, mark. >>
thank you, tucker. >> tucker: thank you. so when you were a kid, there were encyclopedias, history books, a whole library of ways to understand the past. now there is just wikipedia. that's it. across the world every day in every classroom. sod wikipedia matters to the way we understand the world and how it looks like. the cofounder of wikipedia says that we that wikipedia cannot be trusted. he joins us next. ♪ ♪
i will bless those who bless you here in israel and the former soviet union the jewish people are living in very difficult times. there are now thousands of destitute elderly jews who are desperately in need of basic food. the international fellowship of christians and jews is on the ground with survival food boxes but the need for food is growing. call or go online now and say, "i will bless these children of abraham." it's the elderly widows who are hurting the most. many of them are also holocaust survivors who are once again crying out for help. there need as you can see is extremely urgent.

>> tucker: in 2001 larry singer cofounded wikipedia. he left the company some years ago but in the years since wikipedia has gon be the world's most single important source of history, of information about the world.io and so it's a problem that we ought to pay attention to when larry sanger himself says that wikipedia is no longer a reliable source of honest information. he says that the editors of wikipedia use highly publicized sources and block dissenting news outlets from contributing. once again, that's a problem fo, all of us. larry sanger joins us tonight. thanks so much for coming on. this is one of those things that a lot of people who use
wikipedia have noticed. but wait a second, i know some facts that are not in this entry or they are playing up some thing that doesn't seem to be true or this is highly politicized. you see the bigger picture here. what do you think? >> it's complicated. for one thing, wikipedia allows anonymous contribution. that means that because it is one of the most popular sources of information online, there is a natural incentive for governments and corporations, spies, even criminal operations, to basically learn how to play that wikipedia games. it is opaque to me now how it really works. what results is basically establishing views or what you find pushed. they have completely abandon the
neutral point of view. >> that's a problem because in my view, wikipedia shapes this country's it's the primaryit source of information for people about many, about history. we need to fix this. how do you think we can do that? >> thanks for asking that. i don't know if there is a way to fix wikipedia, institutionally conservative place. what i want to see how is it, a network of all the encyclopedia articles inwl the world collectd together and made easily searchable -- you understand how the blog is
blogosphere works, there isa stl over the place but i want the same thing to happen but with encyclopedia articles. if we did that we know longer have to depend on wikipedia and especially if we couple that with a rating system, we would be able to have multiple rating systems, actually, that would enable us to find the best articles from our own point of view on every subject. he would then be free of wikipedia. >> tucker: wikipedia which has become a central part of our culture, intellectual life, to watch what happened to it, how do you feel about that? a >> i'm sorry, how do i feel about what? >> tucker: your role in creating of this thing --
>> i'm embarrassed to be quite honest, i've said so for a long time. i have been a leading critic of wikipedia for over a decade now. i've been trying various things to try to improve on it. and i'm sorry to all the people whose reputations have been sullied by what i got started 20 years ago. >> tucker: yeah. google helps us a lot. i appreciate you coming on tonight. you don't need to atone but i appreciate your honesty. thank you. >> thank you. >> tucker: things are completely out-of-control at the border. a forecast projects this year's immigration surge from mexico will be the biggest in history.

>> tucker: probably have had the sense that things are out of control on our southern border and have been since joe biden was sworn in as president and you're absolutely right, it'sy worse than you have imagined. a new forecast from princeton policy advisor suggests that 1.86 million illegal immigrants crossing the southern border this year, that's the progression. it would completely change the united states forever. that's more people than many states have. many states. how are those migrants getting here? they are walking across, flying from countries all over the world in order to do that, and the biden the administration in many cases are transporting them the other parts of the country using the u.s. military, using air force bases. what they are not doing is moving those illegal migrants to aspen or northwest d.c., of course not. they are moving them to where you live come at the places that didn't vote for joe biden.
ofof course but what is joe biden's response to this, which is happening, that's factual? he lied about it. here he is last night. >> we have enabled a move significantly to change a number. there weree thousands of people in custody with the border patrol. it's now cut by 90%. they are considerably down. >> tucker: we checked the numbers because we felt obligated to do that. during this fiscal year which began in october, more than 1 million migrants had been apprehended along our border with mexico. a year earlier, the number was 129,000. excuse me. so as you can see, that's quite an increase. done in austin is the mayor of the town of all thank you so much for coming on tonight. that is an enormous number,
projecting over 1.8 million foreign nationals in one year, all illegal. you are seeing this up close. what does it look like? >> that number is low, in my opinion, for what you are seeing for already at 1.2 million now. by the end of the year, i think you are going to see over 2 million in my own personal opinion. >> what you are looking at in the course of one year is a newo country. you are looking at a very different united states. no one is going home, everyone is here permanently. the biden administration is breaking american law to change the country permanently. is it changing your town? >> it's changing our town completely. i will give you an example. just yesterday, a land owner in town saw a man jump off the train. he walked into our community, he called me, i called the police department, chief of police, we stop the individual. he was a cuban gang member, but
he was given his welcome papers -- he said all cubans are free to go, we are not going to be detaining them or sending them back. we couldn't do anything other than here he is walking here in our community. he started out -- i mean, wait a t second... >> tucker: cuba is an island that is not by mexico. ghana is in africa, haiti is half of hispaniola in the caribbean. seems like a lot of people are flying to mexico to get into the united states. >> that's what we are seeing. i think it's about the 150 s countries now across the border in the del rio sector. you know, 150 countries. how are they getting there? that's the question i asked all the time. you can't get announcer down like answer out of the border ucontrol and you can get an answer out of this administration.
>> tucker: frivolity is not a rich community.ol i've been there. nice people. all these people from foreign countries breaking our laws to get there they'll make showered with benefits from the federal government that your citizens pay for, what do they think of c that? >> they are getting frustrated. they are tired of it. it's just like the covid situation we are facing now but we are being told constantly about this administration with social distance come away ory, mass, get ready for a shut down, don't do this, stay home, don't go around -- i wish everybody could be vaccinated but that is their choice. yet you've got 1.2 million people who come across that southern border russian like they aren't telling them, wait a minute, have you been vaccinated, have you been anything? it seems like we are giving up our rights as u.s. citizens to accommodate foreign illegal immigrants coming into our country. iand it's very, very frustrati. >> tucker: it'd be a crime for the citizens for the americans
there to ignore corona laws, but for foreign nationals? that seemed like a double standard. >> it's like you mentioned earlier. the moment you cross that bordes the to without crossing the port of entry, you broke the law. he averred he broke the law. going to reward you with a plane ride to somewhere in the united states whether it be chicago, whether it be houston, dallas, austin, san antonio emma we are going to give you a little package with a little money in and so you can get by, and then we are going to take care of you, see if you have this and have that. 97% of the people they release in united states have had the check in date have not checked in. 97%. >> tucker: may be the governor of texas can closed on his border using his national guard, may be greg abbott can do some thing about this and save the country. hoping for that. thank you so much for joining us tonight. appreciate it.
>> thank you, yes, sir. i appreciate it. >> tucker: we have a new episode coming out on our documentary series "tucker carlson originals," the camera shows the effect of open borders on the american citizens who live there. the episode is called "the illegal invasion." comes out on fox nation next wednesday. a little preview on the show the night before. congress is proposing a way to end racism. ♪ ♪

wanted to plow its fields under assault, you teach kids in school to hate their own country and hate one another based on the color of their skin. that's happening everywhere all of a sudden. no one seems willing to do anything about it. senator josh hawley of new missouri is going to try. any school district that gets federal funding to ensure that the children read the nation's founding documents, the constitution, the pledge of allegiance, the bill of rights. makes sense, they are not reading. thanks so much for coming on. i'm sure you are going to be mocked for this but you aren't supposed to notice they are wrecking the country starting with our kids. tell us why you think this is necessary. >> the misinformation that the left is spreading across our schools saying that america is a racist country, we are systemically evil, not true. we are a great nation and liberators. it's time to reclaim the and teach our children who we are, who they are.
that's why of my bill will say if the school district gets federal money you need to teach kids the basic truth about the country. the truth of rights, pledge of allegiance, visitor the things being the documents express the ideals of the united states americans. you must replace the lies with the truth and that's what i'm trying to do. >> tucker: it's a little bit like the tet offensive. you wake up in the enemy is inside the perimeter and you're completely surrounded. are if parents pay closer attention to hire and teaching, and retrospection we have paid closer attention? >> this critical race theory which has been bubbling up for decades now in academia has definitely infiltrated our schools. it's come from the academics come down to teacher colleges, into our school, it's really everywhere. in my stay in missouri, it's everywhere. parents are saying w we don't wt this. for b good reason.
it's not true. it's misinformation. lies but you can't beat lies with nothing. you got to be it with the truth. it's time for conservatives to boldly say that this is a nation of liberators. this is a great nation. let's teach our kids a truth which, by the way, is what unites us as americans. the truth is what we stand on. >> compared to what? compare the american evolution to the haitian revolution, read roboth of them and see which one you prefer but what happens to a country whose kids are taught to hate us over time? >> what happens is they lose faith in who they are. they don't know who they are and ultimately we cannot continue our democracy. our experiment in democracy depends on a generation that loves this country, that knows who they are, and is willing to have the faith to fight for it and extend that great experiment into the future and that's what this is about. we've got to teach kids who we really are as americans and to reclaim that truth about our identity.
>> it's a matter of national survival. it was the point of having a country of nobody running it believes in it, sincerely? >> that's exactly right. a matter of who we are as americans and our ability to continue and extend our great experiment in democracy. at the end of the day, the left is trying to divide this nation. trying to divide us but wait nights us is the truth of who we are. let's learn our history. let's teach students our history pete let's teach them to love this nation and they will be ready to lead this nation in the futuree. >> that's exactly right. thanks so much for coming on, i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> tucker: seems there's so much going on from so many different directions but some people are misguided, most people you just write our kind of wrong, they don't know. but some people are more than wrong. there is a sinister quality to a lot of the conversations we are hearing from a lot of the claims being made. how d do you know who is sinistr
