5:00 pm
i actually like this. this is personality, you can see her face. >> it's from the new fashion movie. >> lawrence: it's fake hair. >> tucker: it's from the new fashion movie "the devil does acid." who bakes that, it is pathetic. >> lawrence: thank you for much, new york, i will be here tomorrow. you know who is next? tucker carlson. he is standing by next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." we almost never use the term deep state on this show. there's something about it that sounds paranoid, even a little nutty. as of just a few years ago you mostly heard the phrase from relics on the far left, the kind of people who lecture you about the united fruit company. the term then and now suggests
5:01 pm
that our democracy is fake. elections and domestic politics are just a sideshow no matter who you vote for in the end, the same people still run everything peer that is a pretty dark understanding of the american system. if you are a normal person who grew up here it is the last thing you want to believe about your own country. it seems crazy. then you read stories like this one. according to reporting this summer in the days after last november's election, the chairman of the joint chiefs of scratch held a meeting with senior military officials at the pentagon. general millie wanted to inform them of what he described as a serious threat to national security. a threat so grave it impaled "the stability of the republic. that threat, millie said, was the sitting president of the united states. donald trump question to the election. for this, -- force against the u.s. president. where the guys with guns, millie said. apparently he had been preparing for this moment.
5:02 pm
he had conversations with the head of the csa and the nsa. he had also spoken directly to chuck schumer and nancy pelosi, donald trump's chief political rivals. now according to a new book by bob woodward and bob costa, apparently he went even further than that. last year, millie called his counterpart in china, general. he did not tell his boss, the president come about this call either before he made at or after. here was millie's message for the chinese military. "general lee, i want to assure you the american government is stable and everything is going to be okay. we are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you. and then reportedly millie said this, generally, you and i have known each other for five years. if we are going to attack, i'm going to call you ahead of time, it is not going to be a surprise. let that sink in, if we are going to attack, i'm going to
5:03 pm
call you ahead of time. it's not going to be a surprise. so according to this account, our country positivist top defense officials secretly colluded with the chief military rival to undercut the president of the united states. how would you describe that? deep state is not strong enough. that's treason. it is a crime. it apparently mark millie is not the only person who was implicated in this crime. others knew what was happening as i did. intelligence agencies almost certainly heard mike millie's call. if they can read emails from a cable news show on fox, over the the chances that the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff was speaking to a senior chinese general and what they were saying. chances are about 100%. yet, the nsa did nothing about it. the cia was meanwhile fully on board with this. we are on our way to a right-wing coup, she told millie that. in fact, there was a coup in process but it didn't come from the right. it wasn't brewing in alabama.
5:04 pm
instead a constellation of employees loyal above all to the democratic party and permanent class in washington ignored the united states constitution and then they invalidated the votes of tens of millions of american citizens. how did they do that? because they invalidated democracy. democracy doesn't mean anything if the people you would like to have no power, and mark millie did his best to make certain the elected president had no power. in early january, woodward and bob costa reported, millie called another meeting at the national military command center. he informed this group that they reported to him, not the elected president of the united states and that is not a small claim. the national military command center controls among other things the nuclear weapons inside our missile silos as well as the nuclear weapons on board submarines. mark millie was seeking personal control of the american nuclear arsenal. he ran around and demanded officers submit to his
5:05 pm
authority, not the president. according to woodward and costa come all present in the room agreed to this. mark millie was in charge. if this is true, it is one of the scariest things that has ever happened in this country. often people say they're worried about authoritarianism coming to america. well, it's here. it's what it is, authoritarian government by unelected, unaccountable leaders willing to use violence to preserve their power. that is what this book describes. it is shocking. not surprisingly our news media spent today celebrating it. it turns out the self-described defenders of democracy don't really believe in the system they claim to revere. the idea of giving voters power over their own government repulses people like this. so they are relieved to discover that in fact our democracy is fake. here's a selection from some of the programming. >> i would call general millie a hero. he behaved in a heraldic manner.
5:06 pm
>> what he did was ensure the guardrails were in place, so i give him high marks for this based on what is described in the book. >> i think millie felt ill used in lafayette square when he was used as a prop, so one can understand millie's anxieties. >> we were in a period of extraordinary danger. i think general millie is going to be treated very favorably by history. >> tucker: the first guy use on this clip is a moron, obviously, there is no surprise there. the second guy was a retired military official. but the last two? george well? barry mccaffrey? these are people who whatever you think of them or who they vote for, you would have imagined might defend american democracy when it came right down to it, but no, they didn't. they cheered its ending. they are happy to see mark millie secretly conspiring with the chinese military to end civilian control of the
5:07 pm
pentagon. it turns out that is the government they want and you should not forget that. now that we know all this, what happens next? in some ways he is the center of the story. a retired army colonel who last year advised the trump administration on foreign policy. he coauthored a memo asking u.s. troops to leave afghanistan finally after 20 years. that memo is one of the reasons that mark millie decided to organize a coup. he joins us in studios tonight. thank you so much for coming on. we were talking before air and you come up suddenly, did not seem shocked by this. it does seem that people who don't know the system as well as you do stunning that the staff would be secretly calling a chinese general in saying we will warn you if we are going to move against you. but this does not shock you. >> i'm not shocked. keep in mind we have yet to hear from general millie.
5:08 pm
we are accepting what bob woodward wrote in the book is essentially gospel truth and i'm not doubting woodward's integrity but we know from experience of that from time to time, he is somewhat flexible in the interpretation made, put a spin on it that may or may not be accurate. >> tucker: i hope this is one of these cases but millie has not responded as of 8:07 eastern. the claim is that he made a phone call to his counterpart in the chinese military and the former president has issued statement suggesting that he did not know. so that alone, is this within bounds or is this is far out-of-bounds as it seems? >> no, there's some things we know, first of all the chairman of the joint chiefs has no statutory authority over operational forces of any time. that means he's not in position to order anyone in the armed forces to say or do anything. he can't do it. he is preeminently the senior
5:09 pm
military advisor to the president. that's what he is, so in theory before he would make such a phone call he would discuss the subject of the phone call with the president, the commander in chief. he certainly would not do something without coordinating with the national security advisor and the secretary of state, because this is beyond defense. this is a foreign policy statement that he is making. these are important things to understand. the third thing -- >> tucker: so if that is true, if this account is correct, from layman's perspective, it sounds like a grave offense. >> he's violated the law, if this turns out to be true. we really need to hear from him, congress needs to bring him over, he needs to be placed under oath and answer questions in front of the senate about this entire affair. he's been very straightforward. they then will have to determine whether or not the law has been broken but from our standpoint knowing what we do about who has the authority to do what and how he fits in within the broad scheme of things, this is wrong.
5:10 pm
remember, the president is not able to act independently and launch a nuclear weapon. he has a consultative process. people who are members of the standing committee with whom this is discussed, this chain of command that runs through the secretary of defense, the strategic offense has nothing to do with general millie peer general millie as an advisor can speak up and suggest what they should or shouldn't do but i think there is something else that people need to understand. if general millie feels as strongly as he apparently does according to this description, about president trump, he has at any time the right to say i cannot be part of this without prejudice. that does not mean he has to leave the armed forces, it means he leads his position and someone else can be brought in. that is what you do if you feel strongly that you are dealing with someone you cannot support. >> tucker: i will just make this call because it is very
5:11 pm
obvious, millie is a dishonorable man. we know this because of his testimony before congress. i think it is very clear. on the other hand, we know for a fact that he was speaking in a capacity, i guess, as a political partisan to the leaders of the other party. >> yes, that is true. >> colluding against trump on a political and partisan level. >> he made it clear on numerous occasions that he was talking directly to the speaker of the house nancy pelosi and senator chuck schumer, reassuring them that he was in control of things at the pentagon. plenty of people who saw that including the acting secretary of defense. that is unfortunate. >> tucker: that seem so corrupt. >> it is so corrupt it is suggests to me that this is a one to saul, he the wind. that much i can accept without hesitation. it's just the entire narrative i would like to have that examined and explored under oath in the right setting.
5:12 pm
>> tucker: i've got to say maybe the most profound casualty here is the faith that people have that our system works and that their views are represented in the way the country is run, that is the most basic promise of democracy and it seems time and time again as we learn these details that the opinions of the people who live here and pay for at all have no bearing on anything. >> i think it is very clear the american people are not represented by washington, d.c. it is occupied territory. ralph nader used to call washington occupied territory. it was occupied by corporations, occupied and controlled by donors, so the american people aren't asked to bear much of anything about anything whether it is immigration, going to war come intervening somewhere militarily, none of those things are done so we know that is already a huge problem. i just want to make one point very clear, though. president trump is not someone who is prepared to launch a nuclear strike out against anyone. that is absurd nonsense absurd nonsense. >> tucker: the whole thing is b.s.
5:13 pm
trump is the first president since jimmy carter who didn't launch a war. right, yeah, the whole thing is a lie. a lot of things are lies, we are learning. thank you. out of nowhere, we told you last night a rap star called nicki minaj just became a huge problem for the democratic party. she represents a lot of democratic voters but she wasn't going along with the propaganda on covid and the vaccine. that story gets started, we will tell you how next. ♪ ♪

5:15 pm
5:16 pm
5:17 pm
5:18 pm
♪ ♪ >> tucker: well, if you've been awake at any point in the past 24 hours you have probably seen this picture of sandy cortez showing up in a $35,000 deal in new york with a dress that says "tax the rich" on the outside. she wore the dress to start a conversation about what it means to be a working class woman of color and not at all to focus on
5:19 pm
her butt. >> have you seen the back? >> no, my gosh, "tax the rich." what a model. >> we started having a conversation about what it means to be working class women of at the met and while the med is known for its spectacle, we should have a conversation about it. >> tucker: she is so dumb and so annoying but also kind of clever and she is bating us here, obviously, it it's tempting to rise the bait. working class? right. sandy cortez grew up very far from the bronx, her dad ran an architectural firm, she went to bu. like so many vapid rich girls are primary interests are wearing trendy clothes and talking about herself. working class? please. sandy cortez is a paid defender of entrenched power. we could go on and on and on. we would merely be feeding her narcissism, so tonight we're going to pass, that said, no
5:20 pm
more sandy cortez talk. instead we're going to focus on the story of another female pop star who suddenly joined the american political debate and that is a rapper nicki minaj. she entered the conversation abruptly with this tweet yesterday, "my cousin in trinidad want to get to his friend got it and became impotent. he became swollen, he was weeks away from getting married another girl called off the wedding so pray on it, make sure you're comfortable with with your decision, not bullied. two things about that tweet, we put the graphic on the screen and suggested that nicki minaj's cousin had swollen testicles. we corrected. nicki minaj's cousin's testicles are not swollen, it is nicki minaj's cousin's friends testicles who are swollen. but it has nothing to do with the physical effects of the vaccine that makes our political class mad. it's the next part of nicki
5:21 pm
minaj's tweet that enrages them. the part where she says you should pray on it, make the decision yourself like a free human being, and "don't be bullied." so our media and public health officials didn't like this because they make a living's bullying people, so the greatest race lady at msnbc told nicki minaj to shut up immediately. >> people like nicki minaj, i have to say this, you have a platform, sister, that is 22 million followers. okay? i have 2 million followers. you have 22 million followers on twitter. for you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives, my god, sister, you can do better than that. for you to use your platform to put people in position of dying from a disease they don't have to die from, my god, as a fan, hip-hop fan from somebody who is your fan, i am so sad that you did that.
5:22 pm
so sad that you did that, sister. oh, my god. >> tucker: got to love that. lady from denver who went to harvard, fake urban accent, she sounds like obama. a macaw." but the most amusing part is that woman's position on how it changed a little bit from a year ago. watch. >> we will have a better idea in december, 15, 20 years, so for us, less than a year, i am not surprised by the public's skepticism, to be honest. >> they are wise, it's wise skepticism. >> tucker: [laughs] they are wise to be skeptical! don't take the vaccine, your testicles will swell and your fiance will leave you. last december she tweeted this "who on god's earth which trust
5:23 pm
a vaccine approved by the fda?" she put that on twitter, it is still there, and nicki minaj, she is a rapper and everything, and she's not stupid, and she noticed. she sent out a remarkable tweet against that msnbc host which unfortunately, it was so accurate we cannot read it on the air because it is too over-the-top and hilarious but there is something much deeper going on beneath all of this. the democratic party of austria's most vivid nightmare is that they won't be able to control their own voters and some rapper will use their talking points from a year ago. that some celebrity will tell black people the vaccine actually makes you impotent. and now it's happening and it's actually a problem for them. because nicki minaj's audience doesn't watch fox. they are not diesel mechanics in rural georgia, they are the democratic party's base. they don't care what nbc news thanks or cnn. they believe nicki minaj. so this i a massive threat to the industrial lying machine
5:24 pm
that controls our national conversation. african-americans already have the lowest vaccination rate of any demographic group in the country be they never tell you that but it is true, you can look it up. 40% of black americans have been fully vaccinated. but now, they have someone speaking for them, and it's nicki minaj. by the way, she is an actual working-class woman of color. she really did grow up in queens, unlike sandy cortez. she did not major in international relations at bu. she didn't even go to college. at 19 she was working at red lobster. so the question is, as one working-class woman of color to another, is sandy cortez supporting nicki minaj? of course she isn't! she's not on the side of people who work at red lobster and actually grew up in queens. [laughs] and she doesn't care if nicki minaj's cousin's friend's testicles are enlarged and his fiancee left. she has more important people to impress and last night, she did.
5:25 pm
you know who she doesn't impress? into zones. we are grateful to have her on tonight. candace owens, thank you so much for coming on. first of all i love this story and i'm not taking a position on the private parts of nicki minaj's cousin's friend in trinidad but nicki minaj is like one of the few people who can speak outside the filter. twitter didn't even take her tweet down. she is a rapper. it was amazing to see the panic in the face of unfettered speech. >> yeah, absolutely. there's two things going on here. first and foremost nicki minaj accidentally stumbled upon the ministry of truth. you're not allowed to question anything from the ministry of truth and she's actually showing her fans in real time, what we've been saying for a very long time, that they control what you're allowed to say, what you are not allowed to say and if you say something and not allowed to say they will make a concerted effort to take you down. nicki minaj is talking about one person's experience with the vaccine. who knows, we could both eat peanuts and a roomful of children, we might all be fine
5:26 pm
and one child might drop down from anaphylactic shock. this is how the world works but there's no way of saying she never said don't get the vaccine because of this, take your time, no more, we don't really know a lot about this. that should be okay. it's fine if this debate was allowed in the ministry of truth it would be okay but it's not allowed and they are actually making a very dangerous mistake because people like nicki minaj. they know she's not a part of the political class. they know she's actually a person come as you mentioned before, that is worked hard, has come from nothing and she is a conversation like she always does through her music. they will create more vaccine hesitancy than before because you're taking down someone they love for no reason. she's not against the vaccine in any manner whatsoever. and on the other hand if this, they are exposing themselves to be what they are. again, the ministry of truth. >> tucker: my total knowledge of nicki minaj is right around zero, in that range, so i have no idea what nicki minaj thinks on anything else but i know when
5:27 pm
someone is not intimidated and this woman is not intimidated and the msnbc lady is like, shut up and know your place, you worked at red lobster and i went to harvard and went completely crazy and it's just so interesting. >> i love to see it. >> tucker: it so interesting to see someone who is not afraid in america. there's still a few. i guess it is left to a rapper from queens, buck up for >> it is good for her, and he's the people who when they are running they go and get them to -- nicki minaj is not playing that game for them and how people are seeing in real-time what these elitists actually think of them. they spoke down to her, she is stupid, the headlines are insane. she is so dumb, she thinks it's going to make your testicles fall off, whatever they said. complete lies, by the way. denigrating her because at the end of the day with a actually of democrats is that these people are stupid. for two years for the vote and at the end of the day they think nicki minaj and all wrappers are very stupid and nicki minaj right now is proving them
5:28 pm
otherwise. she's not afraid. >> tucker: she's definitely not afraid, she has a savage, actually, a kind of made me want to get on twitter, it was so good. you could actually -- and it's not even about whether the vaccine works or it's good for you or her cousin's friend's testicles, it's about whether you have dominion over your own body, whether you are a free person, citizen is a human being and you've got a kind of wonder if people like this standing up might awaken other is that, you know, i don't have to be pushed around, actually. >> right, and that's what it really comes down to. it's about bodily autonomy. i personally believe from the bottom of my heart that more people would get the vaccine if they just had an honest conversation. there's so much gaslighting going on especially people who have already gone the vaccine and said, it made my arm it and they are going, you're a liar. that never happened, how dare you say that?
5:29 pm
these people are on your side, vaccine industry. your gaslighting people who actually listened to you. why not have a meaningful conversation and say this might be rare, maybe this happened, but you're just going to be fine. they don't do that and that is why people don't trust them at this moment. >> tucker: totally true. people in the whole country who are against vaccines. they don't want to be lied or bullied. nicki minaj is right about that. i appreciate your coming on tonight, candace owens. thank you. >> thank you. >> tucker: the former police chief of detroit, one of the good ones, he made a big announcement today. we will tell you what happened the straight ahead. ♪ ♪ do you have a life insurance policy you no longer need? now you can sell your policy, even a term policy, for an immediate cash payment. we thought we had planned carefully for our retirement. but we quickly

[all chanting] >> hey, hey,,, james greg has got to go ! >> i'm running for governor of the state of michigan.
5:36 pm
>> hey, hey, ho, ho, james greg has got to go! >> tucker: james greg joins us tonight, thank you so much for coming on. what do you think, who were those people? >> i know them very well, tucker. summer of love 2020. that they made it home to detroit, they were disruptive, no surprises there. if got to tell you, they want to silence me. they wanted me to leave detroit last year. i said, most of you need to leave. these folks are from outside the city and they come in here and they are not speaking for anybody in the city. they are going to tell you what they did today, not a big deal because most michiganders are sick and tired of that madness. they saw what happened last year. we won last year so the reason why there is so much hate for me by this group because i know
5:37 pm
several of the members, because we won this year and guess what? they couldn't silence us today. so guess what michigan is saying? we support james cragg and they have gone to and they want change. but you know what is even more troubling? they wanted to do this in a state park, bail out a state park. we notify the local law enforcement agency who assured us, assured my staff that we know about the protesters, we will be there. guess what, tucker? no show. and when they did show, it was, well, we don't know what to do, basically, and they left. left. and as you saw the video, it became very tense. so you know what, we need to hold governor whitmer accountable for this.

she oversees the michigan state police and the department of resources that covers the island. i know this is not accidental. this is not accidental. >> tucker: this didn't look like an organic groundswell of political fervor from the city of detroit. i mean, just kind of eyeballing it there. what was their complaint? i'm waiting for them to call you a white supremacist, but what was, there was a sign with the f word on it. why were they so mad at you, do you know? >> they lost last year. they wanted to incite rioters in detroit. like the many cities you've heard me talk about, i'm talking about my own home of l.a., chicago, portland, seattle. they couldn't get it done. and i took a strong stand with them. we are not retreating here in detroit. you are not to burn detroit, and we won because detroiters, good detroiters said it is not going to happen in our city.
5:39 pm
so they lost and they lost again today. okay, they drown me out. i went to an undisclosed location but they found out about it, of course. but i was able to get the message out. michiganders will not be silenced, we want to chief cragg and we are going to go to >> tucker: shouting you down is an ugly business. chief james craig, appreciated. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: one neighborhood in a major american citizen has come up with a great soluti. they're going to secede and make their own pleas. some don't want that to happen because some cities might do the same and it might work for that's next. right now on tuckercarlson there still copies of "the long slide." you can go there.
