the midterms are in a year. so the point of last week's appearance outset chicago was to remind all of us in the country that our perceptions of biden's performance are silly and baseless. actually joe biden is a great president. he's totally aware of what's happening. he's completely on top of things. he knows exactly what he's doing, and he'ss got your well-being at heart. not the narrow economic interests of some soulless multinational corporation that hates america and your family. no, you buried his joe biden is awesome. and to prove it, biden talked at length about the covid vaccine his greatest achievement, he said. strangely, biden didn't say a lot about the vaccine itself. he did note that if you get the shot, you cannot spread kovic over to other people, if there were doctors in the audience they might have been confused because that is ridiculously and provably untrue.ig of course the vaccinated can
but he didn't pause and dwell on the science such as it is instead he spent virtually his entire speech attacking any american who hasn't yet gotten the shot. you've heard him say that a lot but it's worth taking a closer look at what joe biden said last week outset chicago. go look it up for yourself, it's on the c-span website. as you watch it, ask yourself has any president in our history ever talked about millions of american citizens lick this? this is the way presidents talk about foreign enemies or dictators talk about enemies in their midst.t.. it's notot the way american presidents talk or ever have ever, for any reason under any circumstance. we can't think of a single example, even during the civil war.r. and yet according to joe biden root of thisai country's proble. they are destroying our economy they are killing our people. the unvaccinated, biden said are solely responsible for the outbreak of the delta variant of covid. the outbreak that has left tens of thousands of americans dead. biden noticed this to the
morbidly obese governor of illinois, who nodded from behind his mask as if all of this was settled science and then joe biden kept going. the unvaccines are dangerous, he announced, they are diseased dirty, unpatriotic, they are selfish, they are pathogens in human form.gh they have caused this deadly virus to "spread to our children," to spread throughout society.e they suffered because of their absurdity, and their self-inflicted suffering burdens the rest of us. they "overcrowd" our hospitals like a plague of swarming gasping insects. as they lie there ventilated dying, reaping thete rewards of their own sins, these miscreants "leave no room for someone with a heart attack or in need of a cancer operation."cr"l these people get no sympathy because they are barely people.
the unvaccinated, biden told us, dye their much-deserved deaths but even as they die, they burden the rest of us. that's horrible they are, they are subhuman, wreckers of a nation. we are not overstating any of this by the way, go watch the speech, it is online. the question is, once you identify a diseased fifth column like this within the country that you run, what do you with it? biden got to that towards the end of his speech. watch. >> president biden: these requirements work, and as the business roundtable and others told me when i announced the first t requirement, that encouraged businesses to feel they could come in and demand the same thing of theirl employees. more people are getting vaccinated, more lines are being saved. let's be clear, when you see headlines and reports of mass firings and hundreds of people losing their jobs, look at the bigger story, that over the past week we've seen american southwest, alaska, jetblue airlines, all announce requirements. >> tucker:r: yeah, there have beenre mass firings, the presidt
said, but when you see reports of mass firings of law-abiding american citizens, joe biden told us, what you're really seeing his progress. you should celebrate. think about that. no american president has ever made a a statement like that cheering the firing of law-abiding americans in the multitudes. but joe biden did, he didn't even pause, he says things like that regularly. now, that's fine if you are on joe biden's side apparently. but what if joe biden was talking about you? what if he was talking about your livelihood, your career the future of your family, how would you feel? we should consider that. because these are americans he's talking about. and as we do consider that think about what happened to air travel in america over the weekend. southwest airlines, you may have read this, one of our biggest carriers, all but shut down on saturday ands, sunday. the airline canceled thousands of flights through the famous system of air travel, it stranded countless travelers and airports.
you saw it on the news. the question is how did this happen?oa the official expo nation came right away. bad weather in the eastern seaboard, there were thunderstorms. there were also unspecified issues with air traffic control and all of that together forced southwest airlines, alone among airlines, to cancel its flights. that's what the company southwest airlines, claimed. they claimed that in a statement to us today, a long statement. it's what many media outlets have repeated uncritically for the past two days and yet we can tell you itep is untrue. all of that is lie, if not what happened.th twe've spoken to several people with direct knowledge of what actually did happen. we canan tell you the shutdown f southwest airlines over the weekend was a direct consequence, it was a reaction to, joe biden's vaccine mandates.s it b began last week when gary keller, ceo of southwest, sent an internal memo tof his employees declaring that per joe biden's directives, any southwest employee who is not fully vaccinated by the eighth of december will be fired canned, done, right before christmas. this would include not simply
pilots at southwest and flight attendants of course, but ramp workers, mechanics, dispatchers schedulers, ticket agents people from the top to the very bottom. many thousandsnt of people. some unknown but apparently large number of these people have still not been vaccinated. why is that? well, many of them have already recovered from covid, they have antibodies that offer them greater protection than any vaccine ever could, that's the science, so they don't want the vaccine. others have sincere religious objections. they objectt to the use of the fetal tissue in the pharmaceuticals so they don't want to, they believe it violates their faith. still others have friends or coworkers or f relatives who hae suffered severe side effects from the vaccine, and therefore they are afraid to take it. that makes sense, don't make fun of them, that's real. and yet others are taking a stand purely on principle. they believe that inin a free country, politicians should never be allowed to force citizens to submit to medical treatment they don't want. these areon americans who grew p in a country where that fact was taken for granted, everybody
assumed it and they want to preserve that country for their children. that's their motive. but whatever their various reasons, the unvaccinated employees of southwest airlines the many of them, are decent high-functioning americans and they have watched as their own government has dismissed them out of hand as criminals for reasons that don't even make sense. consider the argument they are hearing from joe biden. you must get the shot for the sake of people who have already gotten a shot because the shots don't work well enough to protect the people who have already gotten them. that's what joe biden and the entire american health establishment is telling them. so imagine making that argument to an airline pilot, someone whose entire job is based on logic. it is utterly bewildering to them because it doesn't make sense, it's just too unreasonable. "i've flown militaryy jets in three different military war zones," one pilot told us. "i have never lost sleep like this, the stress is beyond belief, people are melting."
so this weekend in protest large number of southwest pilots called out sick and they effectively shut down their airline. in many of them, you should know love southwest airlines but felt they had no choice but to do this, nobody was standing over them, not the congress, which by the way has excepted itself from vaccine mandates, not even their labor union, which exists and is paid to defend them, but they are not. so in desperation, the pilots committed the most basic act of nonviolent civil disobedience something we used to celebrate in this country. they stayed home. if at the same moment they decided to do this, a large group of air traffic controllers apparently reached the very same conclusion. an estimated 6,000 federal air traffic controllers have not yet received the biden mandated shot. that's nearly half of all air traffic controllers in this country. and they all, as federal employees, have until next month to submitnt or they will be fir.
when they are fired, our air traffic control system, which is already dangerously short-staffed, ask anyone who works in it, will stop. it will cease completely just-in-timep. for time for the holidays. once again, the controllers union has been no help to them and once again the media of aligned with the white house to vilify them, not as people were being persecuted as a matter of conscience, but as criminals. so on saturday, apparently, they took action. the air traffic control headquarters in jacksonville for to, to all pilots is jacksonville center, shut down. this never happens. it didn't even happen when there was a fire, they managed to keep air traffic control going, but this weekend, jack civil center shutdown because there was simply no one to man it. there was no one there. the effects of this were profound and they were immediate. jacksonville center controls the airspace in this country from orlando to raleigh north carolina, as well as far out over the atlantic ocean, one of the most crowded air routes in the world.
air traffic controllers in atlanta watched as trains headed for self order, rerouted west and wound up over the mississippi river, the world's longest detour. o for a moment in the chaos, it became clear that joe biden is not the only person in this country who has power rated it turns out there is a limit to how far you can push some americans. so in that way, it might have been cast as an inspiring story man against the machine. but the media had no interest in telling that story. in fact, some of the corporate left suggested the southwest pilot had somehow committed what is known as illegal job action illegally not showing up for work as if politicians have a right to forcee americans to labor against their will. some of us assumed that was a condition recognized the textbook definition of slavery but no, it's illegal not to work, they told us, and in at least one outlet described it as domestic terrorism.
get to work immediately, wage earner, or you are al qaeda. there were more cancellations of southwest airlinesat and no dout there will be more to come and not just of airline flights. at least two amtrak train routes in the northeast were canceled over the weekend, and so was a regularly scheduled car ferry in washington state. in all cases, the employees in question who have been told to get the shot, did not show up. where these also protests against the biden shot mandates? we can't say for certain. it certainly wouldn't surprise us. because that's our future. thousands and thousands of americans, the best among us, in many cases, will be stripped of their livelihoods, of their lives, by the biden white house's mandates. this is not a small thing. as of tonight, more than 50,000 u.s. marines still have not received the shot00 as well as a large percentage of the navy seal teams.s. at what will happen when these people are gone w from the forc? who's going to protect this country? who's going to protect our cities?
in seattle, to name just one example, the city is moving forward towards firing fully 40% of the entire police force over the biden shot mandate. good luck getting your emergency calls answered after that. and so on. our hospitals, our schools, our national labs, scientists and researchers at oak ridge and los alamos among others, all torn apart by a purge overseen by susan rice, that have nothing whatsoever to do with public health and everything to do with the accumulation of political power. that is happening right now. make no mistake. it will continue to happen and was good people work immediately to stop it. one of those good people is josh, a commercial airline pilot, cofounder of the group u.s. freedomir fires, he joins s tonight. thanks so much for coming on. so summarize for us -- pilots who have raised questions about these mandates have been, as noted, dismissed as criminals terrorists, tell us your motive in resisting this mandate.
>> tucker, thanks for having me on. >> tucker: of course. >> yes, my motive for resisting it is primarily religious for myself. basically i saw -- among my friends i saw a need. many of us don't want to take this. people were. being forced, i believe iner freedom and i'm hee to support the freedom of my fellow employees and all people across this country. i'm not going to take a mandate i'm not going to be forced to do something i don't believe in. >> tucker: so there are two levels in which to assess this. one is the level you just described, the level that preserves american society as we know it for 250 years with freedom at its core because if they can make airline pilots do this, they can make airline travelers do this and there's no end to what they can make you do, but described y if you would since you work in the business what the effect on our national transportation infrastructure is about to be because of these mandates. >> well, as we know, the transportation sector is the heart and soul of this country
and it's a very delicate system. ifnt there's a disruption in one part of the system, it has a catastrophic effect among the rest of the system, which is going to affect commerce, it's going to affect trade, and ultimately it's going to affect the economy. if you have flights reduced by 30% because 30% of pilots are fired because they won't take the vaccine, this is going to affect how your goods get here from overseas, how they are distributed to the store. h the same thing is happening with the truckers, it's happening in the shipping industry. those amazon boxes that typically show up in two days you might be looking at three weeks. >> tucker: so i mean, it turns out that people with the essential skills like airline mechanics and traffic controllers and
yes, commercial airline pilots, have more power maybe than they realized. you've got to wonder if people are being pushed to the point where they're going to be fired how many more of these sick
outs, job actions, strikes whatever you're going to call what we saw this weekend, how many more of these do you think we are likely to see? >> welcome the first of all, we have all the control, and the control comes fromhe a simple word, and that is no. we just don't need to comply. as i far as i'm concerned i will
never promote a sick out or rework action that is illegal. with u.s. freedom flyers, the organization with, we will never promote such a thing. with that being said, we also cannot control the actions of individuals. and i think that you will see massive disruptions in supply chain and in your travel if we just stand up and say no. if these company's w fire us and they fire 30% of the workforce aircraft are going to stop moving and it's going to affect you. it's going to affect your air travel and it's going to affect the economy. >> tucker: joe biden will say this is your fault. finally, how do you respond to he will blame you for this. >> it's his fault, it is squarely his fault. i think anyone with a critical mind can point towards the federal government of the companies that are enforcing these legal mandates from the federal government and see that it's the federal government's
fault.atnf >> tucker: it certainly is. it certainly is. thank you so much for coming on tonight, for your bravery appreciated. >> thank you. >> tucker: so as we told you once again the other day joe biden was up there on stage explaining that somehow he now has full control over every aspect of the life of every single american citizen. joe biden in fact owns you, he can force you to do whatever he likes. he can even make you take powerful drugs that you don't need or what. this is all perfectly normal joe biden explained. free will and personal autonomy are relics of the old america. they no longer exist in this country even here at fox news. watch.h. >> president biden: this i always get a kick out of. fox news. [laughter] fox news requires vaccinations for all their employees. [applause] give me a break. fox news. >> tucker: to be clear, we just have a show on this channel, that's it, we don't run the company and we would never presume to speak for the company but as a factual matter, what joe biden just said is
completely untrue. it is a lie, period. we can say that with authority since wet work here. every day, literally alone among big media outlets, fox news defends this country's most basic civil liberties, what we used to refer to as the bill of rights. the cynical authoritarians like joe biden and the goals around him like susan rice, that just can't be genuine. they assume the people you see onth fox news must be pretending pretending for money or prestige or ratings or something else. but they are wrong. we are not pretending at all. it's real. michael flynn was very briefly the national security advisor of the united states and then he was taken out. it's taken years to sort out what exactly happened. it turns out on elected officials within government destroyed him. mike flynn joins us to explain what happens. ♪ ♪in explain what happens.
that's cool, but ours save us serious clam-aroonies. relax people, my wireless is crushing it. that's because you all have xfinity mobile with your internet. it's wireless so good, it keeps one upping itself. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> tucker: michael flynn was the national security advisor for a very brief time early in
the trump administration and then he was taken out and charged with a crime. if you listen to media coverage michael flynn c was some kind of professional right wing conspiracy nut and taken out because it was crazy but that's the opposite of the truth. he was the number two man in all-american intelligence and then he ran his own intelligence agency, the defensee intelligene agency, he knew a lot. and maybe for that reason relics of the obama administration kneecap him and then immediate we try to send him to jail. it's all clear now and he asked lens it brand-new episode of "tucker carlson today." here's part of it. ♪ ♪ >> the american people, they saw through this from the very beginning because it wasn't about mike flynn. it wasn't even about donald trump, it was about them and when they -- when the left and the media started to attack the presidency of the united states of america, the american people saw that hey this is an attack on us. >> tucker:an yes.
>> and thank god for me because -- and for my family and i, because the american people actually came to our aid. so in a funny way, the more -- i guess the more quiet i was because i just made the decision i wasn't going to say anything until this whole mess was over with -- but the more that they beat on me, the more that the media came and attacked me and called me all sorts of names people dug more and more into my life and dug more and more into everything that surrounded what was happening and it actually became a huge stain on the justice system in the united states of america, and this well -- i'm not certain tucker, if this stain can ever be cleaned. i really don't, because you're talking about the national security advisor of the united states of america for the president of the united states and it's an a extraordinary extraordinary assault on frankly, everything that we believe in.
>> tucker: on democracy have to ask, and this is ultimately what made me interested in your case, is why did they single you out, so this is a brand-new admin attrition i think the a number is about 3,000 appointees or higher at the beginning of every it administration, all kinds of different jobs, national security advisor is top job of course but there were other big jobs.f they didn't go after any others. there were two things they said about you is that you were crazy and you were dishonest and it shouldn't i guess surprise our viewers to learn the opposite is true in both of those cases. there were a lot of incompetent people higher in this admin attrition, i've only never -- jared kushner, omarosa, there's a long list. you actually had the deepest grounding in the u.s. government and how things actually worked the most knowledge of the intel community of anybody in the entire administration.
maybe that's why they went after you. >> not just from a military perspective. my time as the assistant director of national intelligence, i was responsible for a lot of domestic issues definitely responsible for a lot of international issues. my time as the head of one of the largest intelligence agencies in the world, the defense intelligence agency which is the military's arm of the intelligence community, we are in 142 countries around the world. i mean, i've been on six continents. not just my time in combat and iraq and afghanistan and elsewhere. you know, middle east caribbean, central america in my earlier years in the military but i had extensive international, foreign, and domestic experiences and what you find is you find it's like you're going into an enemy camp. you know, in the case of the trump administration. it was like walking into an enemy camp and you felt -- i mean, to me, i felt like -- i didn't feel threatened, but i
felt like man, all of these people are here to do nothing more than just hurt this president. and it was like they -- and what we've learned, what we've learned -- so this is all public. though people really, really wanted to dig into the case against mike flynn at all of the filings and all of the things that have come out, even now even you still see stuff coming out now with this sussman indictment and some of the other things that i think durham is actually -- actually is going to probably start to look at. i think it's fascinating, and i think what you learn is that we have two separate governments. we have the one that actually gets elected and goes into office, and then you have a government inside of washington, d.c., that operates under no rules, no authorities other than their own or whoever is in charge -- >> tucker: it sounds like that government was still controlled by barack obama. >> i would say that to a degree is what we are operating with today. so when people talk about the deep state, and i've heard a lot
of people talk about the deep state in the deep state this, the deep state that. the deep state, i don't really describe the deep state as a group of politically -- of nancy pelosi or chuck schumer or some of the dash some of the people that are elected. they become part of it, but they are not really the deep state. the deep state in this country are thee bureaucrats and particularly the organizations that run the security apparatus. so when -- you know, when eisenhower used to talk about -- and he warned us i think in his final speech, when he was departing as the president, he warned us about the military-industrial complexx that was back in whatever, 1960 so when eisenhower warned us about the military-industrial complex, if you fast-forward to today, 2021, you can add a component to that, and a component that i would add is the security state component to the military-industrial complex.
because the security state of this country has grown probably by five times in the last 25 to 30 years. >> tucker: our conversation with mike flynn went on for more than an hour, you can watch the whole thing on a brand-new episode of "tucker carlson today" on foxnation.com." the caravan making their way towards the southern border now so largege they have official leaders to issue statements like foreign governments, the leader of one of the biggest caravans has issued a threat to the u.s. and everyone living here. that is straight ahead but c first, we should tell you, as we opened tonight, we explained that the shutdown, the partial shutdown of southwest airlines was a direct result of the biden vaccine mandate. you will watch the media deny that. that is 100% true. we will be right back. ♪ ♪

just learned that there is yet another caravan of foreign nationals who do not have permission to come to this country but will come here anyway, making its way toward our southern border tonight. that border remains completely open and very dangerous to this country. fox news bill melugin as always is live for us right there tonight. he joins us now. hey, bill. >> hey, tucker, good evening to you.ru so look, as this border crisis continues to get worse month after month, the drug cartels operating out here are starting to get a lot bolder in their actions. take a look at these photos out of romo texas for the other day. what you're looking at isou partial government -- gunmen involved in human smuggling harmed with rifles standing on the other side of the rio grande and taunting texas national guard soldiers across the river. they were wrecking the slides on their rifles and yelling over to the soldiers, making threats. and just a few nights after the incident, weg were embedded with machine gun fired across the border directly into the united states.
i caught it on video. take a look at this. >> [bleep]. [indiscernible]. that's just indiscriminate firing. >> and what you're looking at right there are tracer rounds from a suspected cartel machine guns. those are coming from mexico directly into the united states those rounds went right over national guard observation post. it was unclear if it was from a cartel gun battle in theua mexico city or if it was an intimidation factor but thankfully no soldiers were injured. that kind of gunfire coming in directly intoo the united state. as this is all going on, there was another migrant caravan in mexico, tens of thousands trying to get to the u.s. and they've got an activist leader who has some fighting words. take a listen. >> [speaking non-english language]
>> and then lastly, take a look at this piece a of remarkable video that our fox drone team shot here in the rio grande valley today. what you are looking at are morh than 20,000 steel panels of border wall that were supposed to be built. instead, they are just sitting around in storage. they have been since january when president biden halted all construction on the border wall. just last friday, the biden administration officially announced they're canceling all remaining border wall contracts here in the rio grande valley so all this metal you see, it's already paid for. i'm told that's -- in particular is worth about $120 million taxpayers on the hook for it. it was ready to go into the ground, it is not going to be used, it is just went to sit there and to wrap it up w your the biden administration says they are going to plan to use the remaining money from the border wall funding to instead fund environmental projects out here, including some for "cultural surveys." we will send it back to you. >> tucker: it's all beyond belief.
thank you so much. appreciate it. why are we putting up with this exactly? and who was running it? well, kamala harris, or kamala perez to manning on the date gets official in charge of the border, that's what joe biden said. but she doesn't seem very interested in the job. instead she spent the last week filming a truly bizarre video for world space week, but don't take our word for it. here it is. >> i just love the idea of exploring the unknown. and then there other things that we just haven't figured out or discovered yet. to think about so much that's out there that we still have to learn. i love that. i love that, and so i'm very excited about the space counsel. we are going to learn so much as we increasingly i think are curious and interested in the potential for the discoveries and the work we can do in space. so that's one of the things i am most excited about.
but the other, you guys are going to see, you guys are going to literally see the craters on the moonin with your own eyes. with your own eyes! i'm telling you! it is going to be unbelievable. >> tucker: so for humanitarian reasons we are not going to play that'll video, but it's online. if you dare, look it up, watch it. watch it again, watch your own soul die as you do. it's the fake is thing that's ever been caught on video but in fact it's even faker than it looks. we just learned that one of the kids that kamala harris was lecturing at is in fact not a normal kid, he's a child actor called trevor who auditioned for that role. no political party that believed in democracy and thought it had to win over voters whatever put up someone like kamala or kamala harris for office. so what does this tell us about the democratic party? candace owens joins us tonight. thanks so much for coming on. i don't know if you dared to watch that whole thing -- and i'm not just being mean for political reasons.
i've never seen anything that fraudulent in my whole life. >> it is really a bizarre thing to watch. and the thing that's bizarre it's like you question yourself as she ever even been around children. these are come as he reported this is somewhat who was a child actor who reached out to his agent and asked to get this part. he was called back weeks later and said you got the part to star along the vice president of unit states and try to normalize and humanize her, which unfortunately for him he failed that because it is hard to humanize kamala harris. and what's more bizarre is that he's 13 years old. why is she speaking to 13 euros like this? she speaking with their five years old, using the expressions and using her hands, like you're reading the hungry hungry caterpillar to a kindergarten class. it is so scripted, there is nothing authentic about her at all. and then you wonder -- to me personally, whenever i watch i wonder whether or not whether she was doing front of children -- does she even want to be the vice president? i think that's on a lot of americans minds when it comes to her. every team receive it she just
seems so phony, she seems like his plane approach he genuinely doesn't want to play. i think people are accurately reporting there seems to be this shade war between kamala harris and joe biden, i think that's accurate. i think she genuinely resents being thet' vice president of united states. she generally resents being subordinate to biden and resenty including structured elements like the one we had to watch just tonight. >> tucker: yeah, because it's a different level. they are all phony, all politicians are fun to come every single one of them, they are all weird, creepy personalities. she is so funny that her phone and this is an act of aggression aimed at her audience. she's daring you to watch her without vomiting. i mean, she literally that phony. >> yeah, she is so unlikable it's hard to think they can ever put forth a woman that was more unlikable than hillary clinton but by golly, i find her to be more unbearable anddan e more unlikable than hillary clinton somehow and it's because it's the acting behind, it's the phony left, it's the cackling laugh.la again, to have to go out and get actors, we see joe biden
appearing in front of a set with got kamala harris hiring child actors. i mean, what is actually going on in this agonist ration? this really does feel like a "saturday night live" skit. same amount of viewers, not very many, buty it's like to we have people were actually running our country or do we have actors that are just sitting around you know, saying what they're supposed to say, reading off a teleconference? why don't r they just let us red the teleprompter? it would be much easier. >> tucker: i totally agree she leaves you pining for the authentic maternal warmth of hillary clinton.e i mean, it's that bad. [cackles] candace owens, great to see you tonight. thank you. the leaders of one of the biggest states in the country have just ordered private businesses to push propaganda on children -- real propaganda hard edged lunatic propaganda. we will tell you how. you can go to tuckercarlson.com and get the new book during the commercial break and amazon gets precisely nothing.ok we will be right back. ♪ ♪
governor gavin newsom survived a recall, unfortunately, and now he is doubled down on the insanity and signed a series of literally deranged laws that imposed political ideologiesof n the entire state, one that will help require retail stores to have "gender-neutral toy aisles close go. if that illegal or constitutional? it doesn't matter, it's california.. author of the brand-new book out tomorrow, why progressives were in cities, and boy do they, he joins us tonight. thanks so much for coming on. they do ruined cities. it's like their hobby. so can the governor of a state tell stores that they have to sign on to a lunatic fringe political ideology under force of law? >> well, apparently he can. he is. i think what's notable about it is that he spends so much time focused on protecting imaginary victims.gi imagine, where the victims off these general nonneutral stores exactly -- while they are actually creating victims everyday by withholding --
withholding treatment for people dying from drug addiction, dying from drug poisoning and overdose, untreated mental illness, taking over the state drugrms of open-air scenes. i have to see all of this as sort of a displacement of the anxiety that progressive leaders feel over the chaos that's been created in the cities by letting crime run rampant out of control, and really a big drug addiction problem.ti >> tucker: that's exactly right. you wonder, the conventional arrangement between voters and politicians is we give you power, you improve our lives.. they've inverted it, we are taking power and wrecking your lives. can this continue in a so-called liberal democracy? >> well, i hope not. i think one of the results -- one of the lessons of the recall is people were really voting on covid, i don't think they were focused on the open drug scenes that exist in the streets. i pointed out in a column today that more african-americans died
last year in san francisco in one year than died in the entire tuskegee experiment, which was the experiment where we withheld -- the u.s. government withheld penicillin from victims of syphilis over a 40 year period. so i seeee all of this as posturing around african-americans, treating whole groups of people as victims, which is a totally racist way of looking at the problem, lumping all black people, all girls, all -- you know, all people of color, in this category of victims is totally racist, and it's a way of a think distracting from the fact -- they a are actually creating these victims everyday by allowing -- young women are being assaulted in our cities they turned over historically black neighborhood in seattle and we are seeing other cities to criminals. >> tucker: and nobody except the people making these decisions is benefiting, and you just wonder how long can this last.it probably not long would be my guest. congrats on the book, it answers a question a lot of us have wondered about, thank you. >> thank you. t >> tucker: we're doing a live event, starting tonight you can buy a lot of tickets to see lots of fox people at a special event in southti florida. we're hosting the show at the hard rock hotel and casino in
