♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." if you've been paying attention for the past few years, and if you're watching this show, we hope you are, there has likely been a moment when you realized that reality is not quite what you thought it was. a lot of the things you assumed were true in fact are not true. they are instead a mirage. they are a web of purpose-built myths designed to deceive rather than inform you. you can't really trust your
senses anymore. your eyes will lie to you. that's an unnerving thought. especially when you realize that ultimately vladimir putin is behind it all. russian disinformation is everywhere in this country. it's lurking even within our own minds. it's worse than even adam schiff thtold us it was. last week, thousands of southwest airlines flights failed to leave the ground. it seemed obvious that the mass cancellations were a direct reaction to joe biden's vaccine mandates.e they were announced days before. then actual southwest pilots appeared to confirm it. but no, that's just with the kremlin wants you to think. in fact, and the authorities assured us all along, it was only the weather. nothing morere than a few cloud. calm down, america. that southwest airlines story is as fake as hunter biden's laptop. don't let the russians lie to you.s people love the vaccine mandates. even the thousands who have been fired because of it. they know perfectly well how naughty they've been. they need discipline and they
know how to get it. thank you, mr. president, may i have another? there's a reason joe biden is the singlek most popular head f state in american history and the reason is he's awesome. how beloved is joe biden? let's put it this way. at sporting events across the country, fans are breaking out in cheers for the white house and itscr wise and elegant lead. these are not coordinated political set pieces, astroturf, as we say in washington. these are spontaneous eruptions of love. one minute you'll be watching college football from the stands and the next minute you'll be overcome with a desire, the pressing, irresistible need to tell joe biden how great he is. it's like having to go to the bathroom real bad except better and more progressive. this is happening, ladies and gentlemen, and it's happening everywhere. a cresting tsunami of support for joe biden. here's a sample. >> [bleep] joe biden.
[bleep] joe biden. [bleep] joe biden. [bleep] joe biden. [bleep] joe biden. >> tucker: it's inspiring, when you think about it. joe biden on his first day in office promised to bring this country together and now he's actually doing it. it doesn't matter what team you showed up to root for. in your heart, you're a joe biden fan, and that's national unity. not everyone is for this, of course. to vladimir putin, who hates us for our freedoms and also because he's russian, this is a threat. loving biden is a thing of beauty, so by definition vladimir putin must destroy it. it's like a sunset, a rose garden, a baby's smile. it's something lovely that must be defiled if russia is going to dominate the world. so in order to correct what is good and beautiful, putin has spread the lie that these expressions of your devotion to
joe biden are instead attacks on joe biden, vulgar attacks that include an epithet beginning with f.. sadly, a lot of people believe that. russian disinformation is effective. that's why they do it. thank heaven nbc has been there to correct that misperception. over the past several years, nbc may be done more than any news organization in this country to fight the kremlin's propaganda machine. thanks to nbc, for example, your doubts abouthe the fairness of e last election have not only been settled. they are now illegal. you're not allowed to express them ever again. so we can be thankful that there was a credentialed representative of nbc sports on hand earlier this month when fans at a nascar event began to celebrate spontaneously celebrating joe biden. if the nbc lady had not been there, you might very well have misheard what the crowd said. watch. >> oh, my gosh. such an unbelievable moment. >> brandon, you also told me.
is still angry. just this month, thanks too joe biden, brandon got his fourth covid shot. that means he's an h incredibly good person, far better than you are. the crowd is simply celebrating that, as grateful people spontaneously do. let's go, brandon. let's get a fifth shot. let's go, brandon. once you strip away the russian propaganda, it's pretty obvious and natural, but it does make you wonder if you pause for a moment. p if the russians are lying about brandon, what else are they lying about?om we are glad you asked. are lying about hospitals. vladimir putin is making up stories about our hospitals. putin claims that our health care system is collapsing because of joe biden's vaccine mandate. that's preposterous. and yet somehow those crafty and relentless kremlin propagandists have managed to get that story onto american television. watch this. >> hospital officials say they still plan to pause service in the maternity unit starting
saturday. >> we have had 43 resignations, 70% of those are in clinical areas. unfortunately a number of the maternity nurses, the professionals who do labor, delivery and postpartum care are part of that group. >> tucker: so the maternity nurses all left. no more delivering babies in the hospital. the russians blame joe biden for this. but the truth is very different. the truth is that this is yet another heartfelt tribute to joe biden. those nurses left so they could devote more time to campaigning for joe biden's reelection in 2024. once again, this is an act of love disguised by a foreign power as an act of contempt. that's happening in a lot of places, ladies and gentlemen, not just new york. central mainene medical center s
one of the biggest hospitals in the state of maine. it halted its pediatric and trauma admissions. you want to treat your child for disease? hurt in a car accident, you can't go there. they cited staffing shortages because of the vaccine mandates. according to a local news outlet "the hospital is preparing to lose hundreds of workers. so far, 84 staff numbers have resigned." this is one hospital in a smallish town in one state. and they are going to "lose hundreds of workers."te that's one way to look at it. the russian way to look at it. the patriotic way to look at it, the joe biden approved way to look at it, is very different. here it is. it means hundreds of new job openings for the foreign nationals currently streaming over our southern border. there will be no unemployment crisis for them. so in fact, this is a massive win. thanks to the vaccine mandate, these illegal americans will have plenty to do, not just in maine but everywhere. in washington state, the spokane "spokesman review" reported
long-term care facilities could face critical staffing shortages. the vaccine mandates taking effect octoberta 18. so if you just showed up from another country without permission to be here, you know what you can do for a living. take the place of someone who moved on. in the state of michigan, the head of the largest nursing home association says that mandates both have been facing a greater crisis. as a good american would put it, greater opportunity. residents of seattle are about to have plenty of new opportunities, opportunities to practice theirnt self-defense skills, an excuse to brush up on tae kwon do from fifth grade. i bet you forgot about those skills. time to get them back. the people of seattle are about to confront a massive shortage of law enforcement officers. why? you guessed it. joe biden's vaccine mandate. here's how one local news station reported it. >> already short-staffed, the seattle police department is preparing for a potential mass firing of officers.
starting october 13, the agency will move into what's called a stage three mobilization, which the department's manual says is reserved for scenarios that have the "potential to cause significant harm, property destruction,n, or widespread public fear." 354 sworn personnel had not submitted proof of vaccination as of tuesday. that number drops to 292 today. still, that is more than 25% of all deployableps officers. >> tucker: we have given you a snapshot of what's happening in the country, but it's happening all around the country. coast-to-coast and all through the middle of the country. and it's happening right now. that means in the coming months, at some point you're going to call 911 for an emergency or you're going to show up at the hospital for an injury, or you're going to try to catch a flight and you'll notice you can't, because the hospitals, the police department, the fire departments, your airline, none
of them work anymore. njoe biden is going to take the blame for this, if the russians have their way. vladimir putin will tell you it's joe biden's fault. [laughs] it's a tribute to brandon. let's go, brandon. victor davis hanson is a senior fellow at the hoover institution and he joins us tonight. thanks so much for coming on. if you add this up and we presented specific examples, ifo we had four hours, we could get more comprehensive. you are seeing the core institutions of american life destroyed by this one mandate which by itself is a challenge, an insult to american liberty. it's going to render inoperable our hospitals, our airlines, our police departments, our fire departments, our long-term care facilities. fill in the blanks. what elseir is there? that's our society, and none of it is going to work very soon. what is the point of this, i wonder. >> i don't know. a lot of policies. it's not tucker carlson saying this alone.
barack obama says the border is unsustainable. larry summers says the economic agenda won't work. senators on the democratic side said afghanistan is a disaster. it's everybody saying what's going on? we've never seen anything like it. we have read about the buchanan presidency and some of us lived through carter. is it incompetence? accidental? non compos mentis problems with the president or is it by iddesign, anarchy, nihilism that would never let a crisis go to waste during the tragedy of 2020 to have an agenda that doesn't poll on any of its items 50%, but through the sheer fear of this chaotic, anarchic, we are going to have a new agenda that is socialist, and nobody knows. they do know one thing, tucker. the academic world and the abstract world is not just parlor games.
it matters. critical race theory as we wrote off as racism -- necessary toic fight racism, nobody would believe that, we thought. or new monetary theory, print money to get prosperity. or critical legal theory that there's no connection between innate natural b law and real l. we said nobody would believe that andat suddenly we woke up d we see the district attorneys are letting people go off scot-free after felonies. we have zero interest at a time that we have 6% annual inflation. it's starting to affect us. there is nothing on the shelves at walmart. maybe target is not going to have christmas presents. i don't want to walk in new york at night. the academic world has filtered down to the concrete world under this agenda, and they are really, really frightened, and they are saying we've never seen something like this before. when they look to these institutions you mentioned, they look at the military or professional sports or entertainment or hollywood or silicon valley or social media
or network news or wall street or the corporate boardroom and they see what happened. we don't recognize it anymore. we have been asleep. t they are filtered into all the institutions with this agenda we don't want, and it doesn't work. so they are in a panic and i think,en just to end, there's going to be a reckoning. i think whether they are mexican-american communities on the border or where i live or soccer moms mad about what's being taught in schools, it's not a top down, woke revolution. it's a grassroots populist revolution. going to see it in the next midterms. i think a lot of these institutions are going to rue the positions they've taken and the damage they've done. >> tucker: looking back, when hospitals told people that they couldn't hold the hands of their parents or spouses or children as they died because of covidhe and no one pushed those people out of the way and said no, it's my parent. i'm going to hold their hand. people put up with that. i wonder if you can come back,
if you can assert your value as a human being when you've already allowed them to separate you from your parents as they die. it seems like -- i don't know. can we come back from this? >> i hope so. i believe that's what's great about america. we are built on a middle-class citizenry, pragmatic, practical sense. they are saying -- if our leaders say no mask, one mask, two masks. herd immunity. no gain-of-function research at the virology lab. they lost credibility. when they say there's no such thing as no natural immunity, i think people are saying i want to believe them but i can't believe them anymore. i'mm going to use common sense. it is starting to coalesce and it's terrifying the left. i don't think i've seen them ever more terrified. >> tucker: people should insist on common sense. don't let them separate you from your loved ones in their final moments. >> each according to their
station has to speak out. >> tucker: that's right. victor davis hanson, i appreciate it. great to see you. we have got a live report from the border that shows exactly what's t happening. how many foreign nationals have been released against our laws. shocking. stephen miller responds straight ahead.
baaam. internet that doesn't miss a beat. that's cute, but my internet streams to my ride. adorable, but does yours block malware? nope. -it crushes it. pshh, mine's so fast, no one can catch me. big whoop! mine gives me a 4k streaming box. -for free! that's because you all have the same internet. xfinity xfi. so powerful, it keeps one-upping itself.
can your internet do that? >> tucker: we have watched in horror for the last nine months, many americansns have, as the biden administration opened our southern border and has allowed hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals to come into this country illegally and then stay here. the question we have asked since the beginning is how many exactly, where are they going and who are these people? we haven't had clear answers until tonight. bill melugin is at the border with the story. >> good evening. a federal source was able to leak us some eye-opening documents. omwhat they show is the biden administration has released more than 70,000 illegal immigrants into the country just in the last two months alone. let's show you some of what we are talking about. this first graphic, one thing that jumped out to us, since august 6, the administration has
released about 32,000 people into the country by granting them parole. that gives them temporary legal status and to apply for workre permits. under federal law it should be on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. to put in perspective, the former border patrol chief rodney scott said he only granted five to ten paroles. as the chief. according to that document, the biden administration did 32,000 in two months. the second graphic, since august 6, they have released 39,630 illegal immigrants into the country on their own recognizance. those are known as o.r. releases. the third graphic, since march 20, the administration has released more than 94,000 immigrants in the country with what's known as an ntr. notice to report. a request for the immigrants to please show up to an immigration office within the next 60 days in a city of their choosing. one final graphic, on one single day in del rio sector last
month, september 28, the administration released 128 single adults into the country without any means of tracking them. alternatives to detention. i reached out to the feds about all this and they didn't deny any of the numbers. they admitted it but they have mechanisms in place to try to get people to show up to court. startling members. back to you. >> tucker: bill melugin, thank you for your reporting once again.ar one of the only people who's doing it. why are all these people coming and why are they coming now? those are questionse we can answer very obviously. they're here because the biden administration has allowed them to come and promised, openly promised, to give them free health care, education, housing vouchers, the fruits of the richest country, or it was the richest country in the world. speaking to colombian migrants in arizona that conceded they have nothing to be ashamed of, that they never would've tried to enter this country illegally during the last administration. watch.
>> [speaking spanish] >> tucker: keep in mind this is all illegal. it's all a violation of federal laws passed by the congress. the administration is abetting the violation of federal law. they're acting in an illegal manner. now the department of homeland security telling i.c.e. to stop raiding workplaces.
what does it add up to? i think you know, but no one puts it more clearly than stephen miller. former advisor to the last president. one of the most knowledgeable people on immigration. stephen miller, thanks. no more mass raids on employers undercutting american labor with illegal migrant workers. tell us if you expected this to happen. what does this mean? >> it's never happened before. i did expect it to happen. let's be very clear about we're looking at. this is an inside attack on our democracy. it's something our founders acnever anticipated would happen or could happen. that the president of the united states, the person sitting in the oval office, is working systematically, or his deputies are in this case, to allow people to invade into our country against our laws, to consume public benefits, take american jobs, and threaten public safety aided, abetted, facilitated, planned by our own government. during the last administration,
president trump directed an agency within i.c.e. known as homeland security investigations to conduct nationwide worksite enforcement. the largest worksite raid in american history under president trump. very proudks to have take place. all of that has now shut down. if you work illegally in this country, yout will be able to take an american job using a fake identity, stealing a social security number, and collecting public benefits the whole way through. i want to talk about the parole issue bill melugin just mentioned. parole is like daca. people outsidede the country who want to come in illegally. deferred action, daca, if you are here illegally, it says you can stay here, you have protection from deportation and you can apply for a work permit. that's whats they are doing for illegal aliens outside the country. newly arriving.er
parole is supposed to be for a very rare humanitarian emergency. the classic example use is for someone who needs to donate an organ.ry they are a match and they have to get into the country to donate aor kidney. that's what it's for. there -- it's used to bring in illegal aliens to take american jobs. everything the administration is saying they need to raise taxes on you to fix, our terrible public school test scores,s, overcrowded emergency rooms. dilapidated infrastructure. all those problems they want you to believe you caused are caused by third world migration. >> tucker:r: stephen miller, thank you for that. here's how to think about it. the president of the united states is the head of the country, like the head of a householdnt in the family. if your kids are having problems, american citizens are having massive problems, if your kids are having problems and you decided to adopt six more kids, what would your kids think of
that? they would know very clearly that you didn't care about them. in fact, you hated them. you had no interest in their well-being.e you didn't care to help them get better. that's exactly the message our government is sending to us. up next, it looks more and more like the school board in one of the largest school districts in the country and they have covered up the sexual assault of a female student. all evidence pointing in that direction. we will bring the latest next.
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. call coventry direct to learn more. we thought we had planned carefully for our retirement. but we quickly realized that we needed a way to supplement our income. our friends sold their policy to help pay for their medical bills and that got me thinking. maybe selling our policy could help with our retirement. i'm skeptical, so i did some research and called coventry direct. they explained life insurance is a valuable asset
that can be sold. we learned that we can sell all of our policy or keep part of it with no future payments, who knew? we sold our policy. now we can relax and enjoy our retirement as we had planned. if you have one hundred thousand dollars or more of life insurance you may qualify to sell your policy. don't cancel or let your policy lapse without finding out what it's worth. visit conventrydirect.com to find out if you policy qualifies. or call the number on your screen. coventry direct, redefining insurance. >> tucker: this is one of those stories that sounds grotesque, and then the more you know about it, the worse it gets. from loudoun county, virginia, outside washington, d.c. a ninth grade girl, 14, reportedly sexually assaulted in a bathroom by a self-described g transgender student wearing a skirt. the girl's father is called scott smith and he says the school district covered up the incident. on june 22nd, he went to a school board meeting to protest what he called a cover-up. he waso not allowed to protest.
he was arrested and beaten by the police. on msnbc, the race lady applauded this and said it was all deserved.ai >> the fight to vilify critical race theory occurring mostly in the confines of twitter and fox news, is taking over school board meetings. in some cases turning into a literal fight. like what you see here in loudoun county, virginia, where a publict. meeting over lessonsn race and the proposed policy on equity for transgender students devolved into mayhem with audience members displaying aggressive behavior. >> tucker: so that guy showed up because he believed his 14-year-old daughter was raped in a bathroom. he tries to talk about it and they arrest him and beat him and then the ghoul on nbc essentially says they didn't beat him hard enough. that's where we are. loudoun county school district, they issued a statement saying that it's followed all legal protocols and it was "properly reported" to authorities. right.
judgely jeanine pirro is the hot of "justice with jeanine." she joins us. thank you so much for coming on. is this story as awfulyo as it sounds? >> it's worse. this story encapsulates virtually every issue you been talking about for the last couple years. this is a microcosm of america, loudoun county. you have got ground zero, the school board. we have a criminal justice case, a young girl who was sexually assaulted. let's not play tiddlywinks. she was forcibly raped and forcibly sodomized in a school bathroom. her father hears about it, they call the school and they don't say anything to any of the other parents. they take him out of school. six police cars come. it's before the school board meeting. they send a note to parents
saying that there was some disruption in school today. nothing to see here, folks. that's the end of that. within a month, we know the young boy, the 15-year-old, is being prosecuted in juvenile court. we know this from another attorney. the records are sealed. this individual is moved to another school where he ends up sexually assaulting another female. i'll get to that ins a minute. what you've got here is a father who became a poster boy for the left, like the one before me you had on say he should have been beaten worse but he became a poster boy for the national school board association. he was referred to as a domestic terrorist. that was a letter they sent to merrick garland that caused him to refer to parents as domestic terrorists and then sic the fbi after these parents at school board meetings. the worst part of all of it is they covered up. they covered up because when they had a meeting to determine whether they would support this transgender policy, crt,
vaccines, mask, the superintendent says there are no records of sexual assault that i know of in this school. meanwhile, there was one within a month before. and then he turns to a red herring and he says "time" magazine says this is all ridiculous anyway. the father at that point is like ballistic. his daughter has been forcibly raped and sodomized and he disagrees and the police come after him. you have got the right to assemble, the right to address grievances. first amendment. none of that is working in loudoun county or anywhere in the united states now. >> tucker: i have noticed. they are putting too much pressure on this country. something is going to happen. really bad. judge jeanine, i appreciate your analysis.. great to see you. john gruden was an nfl coach who was forced out as the coach of the las vegas raiders. the company electronic arts has
announced he's going to be deleted from the madden nfl video games immediately to be replaced with a "generic likeness" but that's not soviet or anything. this happened after gruden's private emails, many from many years ago were leaked to the media. in the emails, gruden reportedly criticized nflde commissioner roger goodell. was he involved? looks like he was. what should we make of it more broadly? clay travis has covered sports for many, many years. he's the founder of out kick, among many other things and we h are happy to have them on the show. for people who aren't following this, i know there's been a lot of coverage of it, sum up what happened and what it means, if you would. >> first of all, tucker, i'm reading harry potter with my kids right now and i feel like john gruden is the new voldemort. you'rere not allowed to mention his name. i feel like i'm going to get struck down in terms of cancel culture. they are wiping him out everywhere.
there are 650,000 emails that have been examined as part of discovery into what used to be the washington redskins. now the washington football team. and the culture that existed there. the nfl has been reviewing all of these emails, and on friday they started to leak out john gruden's inappropriate emails making comments about race, about gender, sexuality, all these different things from inside that 650,000 emails, including criticism of roger goodell himself. if you look at what's going on here, it's highly suspect what is being released and what isn't. it feels like somebody in the nfl office decided they were going to put out a hit on john gruden. maybe that is roger goodell. maybe it's about putting pressure on daniel snyder, the owner ofde the washington footbl team, and trying to force him into selling the team.
every morning we are getting the drip, drip, drip of somebody new who said something inappropriate.av in the case of john gruden, tucker, they have stripped him off the ring of honor with the tampa bay buccaneers. the won a super bowl there. they still have warren sapp, by the way, on the ring of honor. warren sapp who has been charged in the past with multiple felonies, pled down to other charges. right now the tampa bay buccaneers put out a statement saying they can't in any way be connected with john gruden but they have two different players that are currently or have recently been involved in assault allegations. this cancel culture absurdity doesn't apply consistent rules, and right now john gruden has become persona non grata and he is a target in the nfl. >> tucker: thought crimes are much more serious than crimes of violence.na crimes of violence, nobody cares. but if you have crimes of thought, then they destroy you. clay thomas, great to see you. >> thank you. words are worse than actions. that's the world we live in. >> tucker: a lunatic homeless
♪ ♪ >> tucker: at the heart of so many tragedies,, huge proportion of tragedies in this country, is addiction to one thing or another. and it's growing. so clearly. look around. how many people do you know have been struggling with addiction. maybe you yourself. what do we do about it? what is addiction exactly? there's a lot of flaky people in the so-called addiction community. very few people whose work you can trust. we found someone whose word you can trust. one ofan the most impressive physicians we've talked when a very longph time. a doctor called anna lembke, psychiatrist at stanford university. we sit down with her for an hour.
here's part of the conversation. ♪ ♪ give us the overview, you study addiction. how big a part does addiction play in american society right now? >> i really do think that addiction is the modern plague. it is the quintessential problem of modernity and one we are going to be contending with for the next, i don't know, however many hundreds of years. it's something that we really need to pay attention to because even those who were previously not vulnerable to the problem of addiction have become vulnerable because of the incredible abundance in our world. also because of the ways in which so much has become drugified.cada behaviors that were previously not considered drugs have now essentially become drugs. they have been engineered to be drugs. for example, using myself as an example. i really have never been vulnerable to things like alcohol, which does nothing for
me. or caffeine which doesn't wake me up even though i really wish it did. what happened to me in midlife is i basically got hooked on romance novels. it was really the kindle, the technology of the kindle that had me reading later and later into the night, essentially chain reading until i developed tolerance to the "twilight" saga, which was my entry into this world. i developed tolerance and started needing more and more graphic forms of the romance novel and ultimately progressed to reading the kinds of erotica it's not actually consistent with my values. over the course of a number of years, really became addicted to a kind of book.. of course, my problem pales in comparison to people who develop very serious addictions to whatever it is -- >> tucker: it's the same pattern. >> exactly. that's why i talk about in my book and i highlight it. the same mental machinery that gets us addicted to heroin or to
cannabis or nicotine is a kind of mental machinery that potentially makes us all vulnerable. >> tucker: you have already challenged the conventional view of this in your description of how people get addicted by suggesting that an abundance of substances orr behavior to which people could become addicted increases addiction. >> right. >> tucker: the conventional view is that it's the person's's fault for getting addicted, it doesn't how many drugs or social media apps or romance novels you have, it's up to the person not to get addicted to them.r >> yes. yeah, this is the key point. there are many risk factors for addiction. biology is a risk factor. if you have a biological parent or grandparent with addiction, you're more likely to be addicted even though if you are not raised in that substance using home. if you experience trauma in early life, if you have a cooccurring mental illness, all of those are risk factors for addiction.
one of the biggest risk factors for addiction that people often ignore is simple access. >> tucker: [laughs] i love to hear you say that because it's so obvious and nobody says it. >> it's so obvious.]o s it's the state of our world now. we are just surrounded with these high potency, high novelty, real ubiquitous and infinite drugs and so many different forms. making us really all vulnerable to the problem of addiction. i like to say if you haven't become addicted yet, it's coming soon to a website near you. >> tucker: if you have any interest in that topic, the topic of addiction, if it has touched you in any way, that conversation, that woman anna lembke is worth listening to. it's on foxnation.com right now. i want to bring you up-to-date on story from the other day. joe biden last week gave a speech at a construction company outside of chicago explaining that he's fully in control of your body and he can do whatever
he wants and he can force you to take medicine. in the course of that speech, he attacks people who hadn't gotten the vaccine that they needed or wanted or not. he made reference to this company. he whispered it, even fox news has vaccine mandates. that is a lie. that's not true. we know because we work here.in we said it out loud. look, you're trying to force people to do things they don't want. you are firing navy seals and airline pilots and doctors and nurses and firemen and cops. we can't stop you from doing that, but don't lie about us. you don't work here. we do. stop lying. we said that on the show. we put that video on instagram. when we put that video on instagram, the following message appears. "make sure the information is reliable before sharing!" and then attempt to redirect you to a site. get vaccine info. info about policies at a company they work at?
if you're not allowed to explain information that you have firsthand credible knowledge of like your own employer's own policies, then what rights do you have? we thought you'd be interested in how that turned out. well, this country, not to relentlessly bombard you with sad news. a massive increase in violent crime.re the biggest increase in our lifetime. in new york city, a 3-year-old was nearly abducted in broad daylight. a woman mugged and knocked to the ground in times square has died. y a lot of bad stuff is going on. the question is why. when will it stop? what's causing it? that is straight ahead. we'll be right back.
shooting. >> [gunfire]. >> tucker: this person is writing a book on this subject and an expert on it. thanks for coming on. this is real. we are not imagining this? >> no, you are not. in 2020 the united states saw the single largest increase this homicides. what we are seeing and feeling is real. >> tucker: this stuff is complicated. if you could assign a single cause, what would it be? >> you hinted. it's very complicated. there is no single cause but over the last decade our prison rate and arrests have declined. police have become the enemy. that makes for a problem when it comes to crime in american cities.
it's been on the uptick for far too long. >> tucker: it's cause and effect. you get what you put up with. that's true in your home and society. is there any place in the countryn bucking this trend and remaining safe? >> there are very few. there were few that didn't have crime to begin with. homicide and shootings are largely concentrated in small parts of american cities. one thing we are seeing in nicer parts of town that were safe like times square it's bringing the crime problem to the doorstep of more americans. more americans have to wake up to the trend of de-policing that is driving this. >> tucker: thanks for coming on. look forward to your book and
