tv Tucker Carlson Tonight FOX News October 14, 2021 10:00pm-11:01pm PDT
♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening, and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." in january of 2000, bill clinton gave his final state of the union address to congress. clinton used that speech to push for dropping trade barriers against the government of china. here is the argument he made. allowing china into the world trade organization, clinton promised america, would "open china's markets to the united states" and "plainly advance the cause of peace in asia and the cause of change in china."
in his last year in office, clinton made expanding the chinese economy one of his most important priorities. to do that he appointed a lobbyist called steve ricchetti aand put him in charge of the project. fast forward to today, china has been a member of the world trade organization for 20 years. steve ricchetti has written an even higher in democratic politics and is a top white house aide to joe biden. as for china, it has changed as bill clinton promised it would. china is now the richest country in the world, its police state is far more efficient authoritarian even then it was under chairmanld mao. china is a much larger threat in united states and its neighbors, as far from peace in asia as we have been since 1945. the american manufacturing sector is gone, evaporated, most products are made in china theater maybe you seen the pictures of cargo ships strung out into the pacific, struggling to get to a port to unload containers. you will hearn this described as part of the global supply chain,
but that intentionally understate what is actually is. what you are looking at our america's supply lines. at this point we are effectively totally dependent on a faraway headquarter for the things we need to live. here's what it looks like. >> why so many empty shelves? u.s. ports are backed up. >> take a look at this. cargo ships sitting in the sea waiting to pull into port. it is causing major u.s. retailers like walmart, home depot, and costco, to turn to a, private cargo ships in a rush to fill shelves for the holiday season. on the road, there is a shortage of truck drivers. >> the white house says it is addressing the issues fueled by covid-19, a labor shortage, and increased demand. >> tucker: suddenly, fores the first time in generations, americans are having trouble buying basic necessities, things they need. a new poll by rasmussen found 62% of americans said they had
shortages in stores where they live. the things they can buy are suddenly much more expensive. >> the labor department reporting wednesday, meats, poultry, fish, eggs increased a combined 10.5% since september of 2020. but it is not just food prices skyrocketing, the consumer price index shows up, up 5.4% for a year ago. more paying at the pump, natural gas price rose $1 since last pryear, aaa showing the average price per gallon up from $2.18 in 2020, to $3.29 this year. the social security administration says inflation is why nearly 70 million americans receiving social security benefits will see a nearly 6% increase in payments next year. the highest increase in four decades. >> tucker: there are no signs that fundamentally any of this is going to improve any time soon. in fact, on wednesday, the administration acknowledged that your heating bills are likely to jump by more than 50% this
winter. those are the kind of things people actually notice. it hurts when you get poorer, and many people are getting poorer. but strangely, the ministry she has refused to acknowledge it. let anything, they are salivating at. last night, a harvard professor called jason furman, closely aligned with the what biden white house, sent this tweet, "most of the economic problems we are facing from inflation, supply chains, et cetera, are high-class problems. we wouldn't have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10%." in other words, you ought to be thrilled to have less money, it means we are winning. ron klain, joe biden's chief of staff at the white house, promptly endorsed that tweet. and that is delusion. or maybe it is intentional. you pretend your failures are victories and some people will doubtless believe you. that seems to work in afghanistan, maybe it will work here. that could be there thinking. but it won't work here because domestic policy is not the same as -- people notice when you cannot
buy presents for your children or keep your house warm in january. these are not symbolic problems, these are measurable declines in your family's standard of living, and they have consequences. if economic decline continues and it seems likely to continue, you will see a profound political reset in this country. and here is why. the only reason americans have put up with the endless woke garbage the left turns out by the gallon is because they can afford to put up with at. for generations, this has been a very rich country, and affluence covers a multitude of sin. people will tolerate a lot of things they disagree with, as long as gas is cheap and amazon deliveries keep coming. but when a society becomes poor rare, people's attitudes change, and they change fast. for one thing, they become much less patient when they are mistreated. you are firing me right before christmas because i won't take your shot? no, i'm resisting that. you are telling me my son can't get a job because he is the wrong skin color? that's's wrong and i'm going to fight it. et cetera, et cetera. politics will look very
different in a company with permanent shortages. and this may be an unpleasant surprise for the democrat party. the progressive left's entire program is built on the presumption of endless, boundless affluence. of course we can afford that, we are rich. people like nancy pelosi and sandy cortez and rashida tlaib believe that. they believe it as a matter of faith. they talk about economics, but they have no idea how the actual economy works. ate they don't know anything about the great american affluence machine. they never really had jobs. the one thing they know for certain, dead certain, is that every good thing must be free, it has to be. but that is not how life works. certainly not in countries that don't hold the world reserve currency. there is a reason they don't have drag queen story hour in mexico. people worried about -- tortilla prices and cartel shootings. they don't have time for that kind of nonsense. we are about to become a lot more like mexico. it turns out our economy was much more fragile than we
thought it was. if we t had known that earlier,e might not have elected an economic illiterate like joe biden as president. here is joe biden during the campaign its plaintive cnn explaining to cnn anchors that actually, printing trillions of new dollars for wasteful government socialist programs will reduce inflation. >> pumping all of this money into the economy, couldn't that add to -- >> look, here is the deal. moody's today, wall street firm, not some liberal think tank, said if we pass the other two things i'm trying to get done, we will in fact reduce inflation, reduce inflation, reduce inflation. because we are going to be providing good opportunities and jobs for people who, in fact, are going to be reinvesting that money back into all the things we're talking about. >> tucker: did i say the campaign? he was actually president when he said that. that was this june, when he stood on stage, looked under the
camera and told us when you make more money and print more u.s. dollars, the value of u.s. dollars goes up. then you watch the cnn anchors nod like livestock. it made sense to them. but of course it is ludicrous. is just about every sane person has acknowledge since, inflation is rising, the u.s. government hasn't devalued the u.s. dollars by making too many, they are not worth much. but still, the white house doest not seem concerned. pete buttigieg has been on leave from his job since august after adopting a child, paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed, i wonder how that went. now he is back i in office at as the transportation secretary and he is deeply amused, he said, to see dozens of container ships can't make it into this country. >> as we are looking at the supply chain issues, how bad are they going to get for americans, eand i'm talking specifically, you know, leading here into the december holidays, where people are relying on getting goods, on getting presents. >> i think there has always been
two kinds of christmas shoppers. there is the one so have all their lists completed by halloween, and then there's people like me who show up at the mall on christmas eve. are in that latter bucket, obviously there is going to be more challenges. >> tucker: kind of a funny little dorky dad story, i wait until the last minute to shop for christmas. that is not the point, pete buttigieg, you are the transportation secretary and our --un is broken. is that a problem? no, it is amusing. the deeper truth is people can get goods, our leaders outsource production to another country and they want you to believe it is a good thing. they want you so badly to believe it is a good thing, their allies in the media are repeating that message verbatim. >> i talked last night, he explained to me about the supply chains, it is a terrible and people want to get their things but it is also an indicator the economy is doing well. people wants to buy things, and it is i backed up.
let's look at the part, hey, the economy is great and people can buy things, they are out and about and wantle to buy -- i think it is a little spinning. >> it is spinning from i'm just trying to make people feel good. >> tucker: we are not making the case for credentials or expertise. just because someone teaches at harvard does not mean he is wise or even smart. but when you open your segmenteo on economics by saying "i talked to a public radio host who does a show with the word economics and the title and here's what i learned" -- [laughs] you are not trying very hard, especially when his conclusion is inflation is a measure of our success? be grateful you can no longer afford to eat meat, you are doing your part for climate change. things are going to change if this continues, you can believe that. the author of "woke, inc." and a very smart man, he joins us tonight. thanks so much for coming on. your parents came to this country from another country, one of the things immigrant families have that native-born americans don't is an appreciation of the fragility of economies.
they don'tve imagine that everye is going to be rich for all time just because they were born in a rich country, and watching these people talk, you really feel like that is what they believe, this can kind of go on forever, keep printing the money, everyone has more than enough, more drag time story hours. >> exactly, tucker. first of all, talk about being woke, it is the ultimate privilege, the reason you do not see wokeness infecting poor countries, they have bigger things to worry about the people putting food on the table, this is the ultimate privilege.he now the united states goes from being well-off to being less well off and all the ways you laid out, inflation, supply chain shortages, watching foreign policy disasters abroad, the people in power, the biden administration using and projecting these progressive values as a smoke screen to deflect accountability for their actual policy failures, so you mark my words, tucker, the more inflation we see, the more supply chain shortages we see
more foreign policy disasters we see, the more you're going to see the biden administration talking about racism or misogyny or bigotry or whatever as a way of changing theu'idbo subject. actually, tucker, you saw it in afghanistan, for example, the taliban coming to power, actual terrace coming to power in a place we left a couple months ago but the thing we are actually talking about with merrick garland's domestic terrorism in the form of parents actually putting up protests to the way their kids are being taught in schools, classic example of changing the subject, and marky my words, you are goig to see more of it. as the policy failures rack up. >> tucker: you blame the records for the failure of the potato harvest. white supremacist, no one has ever seen one, but they are everywhere. i think that is a pretty hard case to make, though, in the face of increasing poverty. can you actually convince people they are getting poorer because qanon is bad? >> you have this battle on the left, tucker, not a lot of people on the right appreciate this distinction. the occupy wall street left mostly left in the stands for ten years, then you have the new woke left that has actually held the reins over power. as you begin to see economic
recession and economic consequences of this country and you begin to see inflation -- as you begin to see gas prices go up, i think you are going to see the rise of the occupy wall street left come back, and we are on the left need to go back to arguing about economic inequality as opposed to talking about racism and misogyny and bigotry. and you know what, i think it's great to be a good thing for the left and this country because that is ultimately what the left and right ought to be arguing about. they haveat different views on redistribution or taxation policy or the right economic policies, but we need to be talking about our reliance on china, not a left-wing or right-wing issue. both parties guilty over the last 30 years.ia so i think this actually could in the long run be good for getting us back on topic and talking about the things we need to be talking but as opposed to the woke smoke the biden administration and their corporate cronies blow every day to change the subject. >> tucker: i couldn't agree more. this is a great country and what it deserves this conversation, we have not had one for years. thank you so much. >> good seeing you. >> tucker: so the governor of
washington state, jay inslee, complete the out-of-control commands instituted a vaccine mandate that mirrors the federal mandate from the biden administration, thousands of state employees come first responders, teachers, will be fired as soon as monday. seattle alone is looking to lose about 400 policemi officers. in the city of san francisco, which is unoccupied, essentially, because of crime and disorder, more than 100 officers have already been pulled off the force because they refused to get a shot they hdon't want. seattle-based talk show host jason rantz is one of the few covering this lunacy enjoins us now with a report. jason, good to see you. if that many police officers in a city on the brink like seattle, what does that mean? >> it means total chaos but it has to be a discussion that is more than just the police, you will have thousands of washingtonians being fired on monday, either for being unvaccinated or increasingly to turn over their private medical records. you have roughly 10% of state agency workers who are going to
be fired, and this is every single agency pretty much is getting impacted. state patrol, department of corrections, ironically, the department of health, any worker that is fired over this mandate won't be able to collect unemployment becauses the state considers this to be a voluntary resignation. so they are not even treating it as an actual firing. we are told we are not going to see any service interruption onn the same w day the ferry system announced a 40% reduction in routes moving forward. also impacted our public and private schools. you've got teachers, principals, coaches, all going to be fired. i spoke to a married couple this week who work at walla walla communityy college, three kids, deeply heldwe religious beliefs, they also had covid, they were covered, and now they are being told they are going to be out of a job on monday, but you are right, the biggest concern is around public health and safety of the washington state hospital association, saying we can expect thousands of firings statewide from nurses and doctors, lab techs, even the janitorial staff that work at these hospitals.
that delay -- that will lead to a delay of surgeries, of prenatal checkups, and then you go to seattle, where it is all connected. you have a historic rate of homicides right now. we already have a staffing crisis in seattle, as far as the police department, and so 400 officers haven't turned in their vaccine paperwork, but of that number, you've got about a hundred or so that have specifically asked for accommod, and they have been rejected, so they are going to be fired if they don't comply, and they are being told the work they did safely while unvaccinated for the last 18 months is somehow no more dangerous. which doesn't make any sense. of course not. vaccinated people can spread the virus. you'd think they could die from it. i really appreciate your point. we don't know whether any of these people are vaccinated or not, some just don't want to give their medical records to the government. you should give your medical records to the doctor, i would never give my medical records to
anybody but a doctor under any circumstances. i appreciate people standing on that principle. jason rantz, thank you. >> thanks, tucker. >> tucker: so you are seeing some dissent in this country from people with something to lose. dave chappelle, a comedian, kyrie irving, an nba player, all of a sudden, you are seeing people standing up and saying what they really think, even when theypl are attacked and threatened with destruction. that's interesting. and it's inspiring. jason whitlock joins us after the break to discuss. ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ >> tucker: an nba player called ♪ ♪ >> tucker: an nba player called kyrie irving has very publicly decided not to take the covid shot. the tvy works for, the brooklyn nets, responded by punishing him, saying he will not be allowed to placing a game this season. here is how irving explained his decision. >> don't believe that i am retiring. t don't believe that, you know, i'm going to give up this game for a vaccine mandate or staying unvaccinated.
pay attention to what is going on out in the real world. people are losing their jobs to these mandates. people are having to make choices with their old lives. i'm always going to stay true to me, and that is me, this is my life. i get to do whatever i want with this. this is one body i get, what god body i get here. and you are telling me what to do with my body, it has nothing to do with the organization had going to put that out there, nothing to do with the nets or my teammates, it has to do with what is going on in our world. >> tucker: so there is an american who thinks he should not be told to take medicine he does not want to. the difference is by taking that stance, he is losing millions and millions of dollars, that is interesting. he clearly means that. he iss not the only famous persn iwilling to say things and then suffer for saying them. in his latest comedy special, dave chappelle makes a very basic observationff about the nature of biology. watch. >> i agree.c i agree, man. gender is a fact.
you have to look at it from a woman's perspective. look at it like this. caitlyn jenner, who i have met, wonderful person, caitlyn jenner was voted woman of the year. her first year as a woman. ain't that something? beat every [bleep] in detroit, she's better than all of it. i would be mad as [bleep] about it. >> tucker: he goes on like that for about an hour and 15 minutes, it's actually worth watching. netflix is under enormous pressure to pull it off the air. so far, they haven't. it is hard to think watching this that we are not watching something that is more significant than just basketball and comedy. what is it, exactly? jason whitlock has thought cdeeply about and it has a new column explaining how this is courage and could be infectious. jason whitlock joins us now. you so much for coming on. was such a great piece. will you summarize it for our viewers? >> well, tucker, my argument is that men are being emasculated,
we are being castrated, particularly those of us with traditional christian values, and i can't say that kyrie irving or dave chappelle are aware of the larger deal that is going on with men, but they can feel it. kyrie irving is being forced and a lot of americans are being forced to take the vaccine when there is no real proof that kyrie irving's health is in jeopardy if he does not take the vaccine. the guy is 29 years old, in great physical condition, his chances of being damaged by covid are merely -- it is the, same as being struck bybe lightning, it's just not going to happen to him, but he is being forced, and he is being forced to bow out and being forced to end willing to be a voice for all these other americans and force a conversation that needs to happen because no one else is standing up for these people, and dave chappelle has, hold on, as a black man, and as someone
with traditional male values, i don't know if dave is a christian or muslim or whatever, but he hasn't male energy. he is being forced into the closet aboutwh his beliefs. again, thosent of us with traditional male energy, male values, christian values, we are having to conceal who we are in this modern american culture, and it is good to see dave chappelle pushed back, and so i think we are starting to see in a lot of entertaining -- we saw with nicki minaj, hey, with the vaccine, hey, this isn't fair, but it is critical that men stand up because we are the ones being bullied into the closet if we have any traditional values, and i think a lot of people -- this is why my show is dedicated, and i appreciate you lending me your platform from time to time, but on my "fearless" podcast, what i
am trying to do is explain to all men, regardless of color, we've got to get in this together. you can't look at this and go "oh, look what is happening to black guys," and not understand, you are next. you are next. they are in your schools, emasculating you right now in critical race theory, and teaching your kids you are the worst people on the planet.ou they have come for us.. from the great society initiative and the total emasculation of the black man and the creation of the welfare state and running the man out of the black family, and now we have all these confused and clueless and dysfunctional kids, i'm telling you, you're next. w and if we don't come together, those of us that believe in a higher power, those of us who believe in god and jesus, those of us with traditional male values, if we don't come together regardless of our skin
color, we are all going down. this country will force us all into the closet, and then when they are done forcing us into the closet, they are just going to eliminate us from this culture. it is in the process of happening. we have to come together, tucker. >> tucker: we will not accept corporate androgyny, which is being forced from above, really wfrom the government and the corporate world on the population. i could not agree with you more. i think what you just said is inspiring. i don't know why people haven't been saying this for decades but i hope people will listen to what you just said, read your piece, and realize time is short. jason whitlock, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> tucker: so, we brought you a couple different stories about lieutenant colonel stu scheller of the united states marine corps, who was the d one person commissioned person, the marine corps, we saw stand up and asked what happened in afghanistan and also the only person we are aware of to beinge punished for the debacle in afghanistan.

begin to enforce its own laws. mathat candidate is robbie starbucks, he joins us tonight. you are in nashville but you went down to the mexican border to leave t this demonstration, why? >> absolutely. in tennessee, we have a rich history of going down to texas and helping when our country needs help, first with davy crockett during the alamo and tens of thousands of tennesseans during the mexican-american war and the truth is i see what's happening at the border as a crisis for the whole country. we are all border states under this administration when they are allowing this flood of people in. i thoughtat it was important toe led by hispanic leaders, this was my wife's idea who's not hispanic -- we knew it was important for us to be there and show up and say this is our country and we do not want it to be fundamentally torn apart by these people in power right now because that's w what they are trying to do, they are trying te destroy america and everything this country stands for, even myself as a cuban-american, i felt it was so important for us
to stand up and say no more, we need to enforce our laws, we need to finish building the wall and we need to stop this spirit the democrats made this a moral argument for a long time. if we meet them on that ground and say let's stop defending ourselves when they do that, let's go and meet them, go on offense, and let's say what is truly immoral. i think it's truly a moral that we have policies that result in the worst human trafficking that we have ever seen, the worst child trafficking and sex traffickingnki we have seent our southern border, that's what's immoral and that's why we did it. >> tucker: the managerial class is so clueless they imagine everyone with a latin last name is loyal to an ethnic group and wants open borders. i'm looking at the poll numbers and those that suggest that's not true at all, they have no idea what they're talking about. there's not much support for this among people with spanish last names in the state of texas, what is your view?
>> that'ssh absolutely correct, recent polling shows only 21% of latinos and hispanic people approve of biden's immigration plans. it's because just like every one else they are pushing out it's part of their marxist plan to destroy america. they want to attack everything we americans love and cherish, family,es faith, freedoms, futus for kids. so we see that not just in the immigration issue but all across the border. there going to come to regret what they've done here. they've woken up lions like me, ideological warriors who are fed up with establishment politiciansve and they are going to say we are going to do this job ourselves. i burn down a career in hollywoodng because i knew we needed people who had nothing to lose to go up there and fight for america, fight for our values and our freedom. our people there right now aren't doing alu good enough jo. >> tucker: they certainly are not. as you look around, you running
for office -- republicans think they're going to take congress back. but are there a lot of new erepublican candidates who share your views and not the views of the people running right now? >> i think we are going to see a wave of lions in 2022 come in, not just inspired by what the biden administration c has done but also inspired by saying you know what? we are sick of these mitt romney, liz cheney rhinos that fought for corporate oligarchs, we want a party that fights for people and fights for the american people not going to see the ground professionally for the rest of our days until our party could no longer win on election. that is why we are doing this. there is going to be a wave of us and i guarantee it's going tr fundamentally change the future of america and we are going to be better off for it. we are coming for those people in primaries and they better be ready. in my seat it's not so much of an issue because i'm in the lead already but in other states where they have two primaryhe
someone, we are going to beat them and they need to be ready for it.nd >> tucker: that would make a difference, for sure. thanks so much.e, >> thank you, tucker. we are out of time, it could go on forever but we are time limited to one hour, we'll be back tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m., the show that's a sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink. now the great sean hannity takes over.00 >> sean: thank you, welcome to "hannity." we have a lot of ground to cover, a lot i mean including joe rogan's kicking cnn's ass in person. it was epic. we will play the tape coming up. developing come of the islamic of afghanistan. >> americans held hostage abandoned behind enemy lines, day 61. your president joe biden does not care, he turned the page 40 days ago, he has not mentioned all the americans, their
