i used to hate parallel parking. (all) me too! the all-new buick envision. built around you. all of you. pay no interest for 72 months plus current eligible buick owners get $250 purchase allowance on 2021 buick suv models. is .... ♪♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to tucker carlson. tonight it's friday and we hope to do a lighter show but we're not in charge of the news, biden. for nine months they have gone from since january, they have hardly been a single day where americans confident in their country is calm, save, in good hands. tonight unfortunately we find
ourselves on the brink of the gravest crisis yet. fire and police protection, hospital, the military, schools the long term care facilities, road maintenance, transportation, food and freight delivery, air travel. all of these services are hallmarks of civilization are rapidly degrading and thanks to the biden white house, completely paralyzed. millions of americanss have been told to submit to joe biden's lunatic and vaccine mandates or be summarily fired. the deadline for many is tonight at midnight. these are not lawyers, activists, cable news anchors. these are nurses and cops and navy seals and pilots and air traffic controllers. these are the people you cannot run a country without. but soon you may be forced to anyway. in the state of washington, thousands of cops, teachers,
nurses, bus drivers are about to be fired. it's not clear how the state of washington will function. biden doesn't care. explore of its entire new precedent forthat. people die because of that. the l.a.p.d. might lose many of their officers as well. america's largest city will plunge into chaos. there is no public health justification for any of this. it is an assault on public health. americans will lose their lives because of what joe biden is doing. the most unnatural disaster imaginable. tomorrow we believe there will be another major disruption in service, major air traffic control as well. employees are not on strike. they are desperate to slave their livelihoods from biden's mandates. they are getting fired from their jobs they spent years, you
can feel their sadness. ♪ ♪ >> tucker: keep in mind and that these people did anything wrong. they serve safely through the pandemic and safely. now they are being fired. one of the signs read 16e year flight attendant. my lord and savior and dr. are the woman was qualified to tell me what to put my body. she's absolutely right about that. why is it administration hurting her and hurting all of us? imagine living in the city of chicago? it'sni a beautiful place under
siege more than a year by murderers and criminal gangs. the very last thing that chicago needs. the city could lose half of its police force from the vaccine mandate. horrifying story. box's matt finn has latest for us tonight. >> right now vaccine mandates in many u.s. cities could put millions of americans at risk and force thousands of city employees out of work. could all potentially lead to higher crime and unemployment across the united states tonight, trying to take a stand against the vaccine mandates. in chicago, the deadline is in a matter of hours. midnight. ircity employees must enter ther vaccine status in a city portal. chicago police union estimates as much as half the police force has not been vaccinated. thatcc means thousands of offics and face being let go in cities like chicago with steep violent crime for the battle between chicago mayor lori lightfoot and thend police union president is rapidly intensifying.
the short while ago a cook county judge issued a temporary restraining orderra against the police union president prohibiting him from publicly commenting anymore about the city's vaccine policies.. the mayor claims that officers who do not comply will not be sent home this weekend but chicago police worry if they do not submit their vaccine status at some point very soon they could be fired. over the past week i've talked to police sources hereer in los angeles,rc seattle, and chicago. one police officer said that he does not care who is vaccinated. he doesn't want to enter his personal health information into the city's portal. he's healthy, fit, had a personal health assessment, he simply does not want to get the vaccine. tucker? >> tucker: that's his right. matt finn, thanks so much. keep in mind, it's not just the police, it's the military. hundreds of navy seals we estimate could soon lose their jobs. thousands of the army, navy.
at the state level is a particularly painful. entire counties in the state of maine will lose paramedic services tonight because of the vaccine mandates. what does this mean for people to live in the state? happy to have her on tonight. thanks so much for coming on. give us a sense of what this will mean for people in the state of maine. >> thank you, tucker. yes. as he said tonight at midnight ems workers will no longer be answering calls.ls and we don't know at the state level how many have been let go. but there will be 911 calls that go unanswered in the state of maine. the difference here in maine that's to understand is we've already done away with all philosophical and religious exemptions and it is very difficult to get a medical exemption at all. these ems workers, they are faced with the choice of feeding
their family or taking the vaccine. i have talked to many people throughout the state, they are deftly consequences coming and we are not sure yet what the impact over all is going be you. >> tucker: if your 91 call goes unanswered, what's the point of a government? why isn't there a revolt against this? >> there absolutely -- there's going to be a lot of people going to be hurt byt this. but at this moment, no one knows. this really has not been well reported. the people that are living in communities where the entire ems service or possibly 50% or a large percentage no longer would be working. this is something we are going to find out as it unfolds over the next week. >> tucker: people who support he
heart failure or an ambulance, some of them will die as a result of this? >> that's the most dire consequence of all. that is one of the major concerns that we have. i spoke with the director of ems today and they had some preliminary numbers until sunday night how many workers are actually going to be getting done. at this point, it's very strongly like management who exhume the vaccine mandate monday the most careful of anybody in ouroc society, they understand the transmission and they are careful of their patients and now we are kicking them up saying your services are no longer needed. people don't know. >> tucker: politicians no more than health care workers and everyone acts like that is normal. it's also untrue.
thank you. >> thank you.r: >> tucker: you may have noticed that some people are getting away witheo murder literally while others are being sent to solitary. nowhere isis that more obvious then how the judges have treated the january 6 protest. we will tell you what prosecutors are recommending and what it means next.
move your xfinity services without breaking a sweat. xfinity makes moving easy. go online to transfer your services in about a minute. get started today. >> tucker: on tuesday three days ago, 53-year-old hair salon as they began, it became pretty obvious that she was not going to prison. that's because the crime she was accused of committing was not -- the crime was "parading and demonstrating or picketing in the capitol building on january 6. did not set fire to any property, did not attack police officers. she paraded. she thought it was her right as an american. then the sentencing became an very clear she was not going to be going home to her family and hair salon. it's because of what she
believes. a doj prosecutor, joshua rothstein, labeled donna that covid is a "hoax pandemic." believing that it is a crime, i thought crime. you can go to jail for that. this was a trial of what happened january 6. the physical facts of that day. the judge also heard that donna is not vaccinated and of course that's a crime too. she's going to jail! you remember last year the government was vaccinating inmates to tell them it's too protect coronavirus. "it's one thing the believe in conspiracy theories," the prosecutor said. "it's another thing to act out on them. really? he's a shrink now?
started overruled the recommendation for the crime of "parading in the capitol building" disputing the official narrative on covid. what's interesting is a few months ago, donna's friend was sentenced for the exact same offense. why the difference now? here's a difference. unlike her friend, tanya check-in donated many thousands of dollars to pacs supporting barack obama and barack obama have invited her to the federal bench in 2014 where she's been disgraced ever since, a real disgrace. the last few months, has repeatedly overruled january 6 defenses. matthew of texas, and not the only one who is running political show trials.
there is another barack obama officer who has overruled prosecutors to punish january 6 offenders harshly than what the doj asked for. this is unequal justice by any measure. it contradicts the central principle of our legal system in our country, all citizens -- it's not about what you believe, it's about what you do. has nothing to do with who you listen to on the radio or watching television, has to do with violating law. you should know that some of the protesters who storm senate buildings one up in jail. of course not. they were not to toss in solitary. not even the self described environmentalist who rated of federal building in washington. this is footage yesterday from the department of the interior. watch.
[shouting] >> back up. back up! >> don't do this... >> tucker: that, ladies and gentlemen, is the single worst attack on our democracy since 9/11, pearl harbor and the civil war -- it's not, we are not liars. go inside, go inside, chant the rioters. they are on video trying to push over the barrier. but the standard set by behavior on jerry six, that's an instruction on the government. the department of the interior issued a statement that refused to condemn it or the writers were quoted directly. leadership upholding the right of free speech and peaceful
protest. end quote. so they are not insurrectionist, they are peaceful protesters because they voted for joe biden! this is what happens when law enforcement becomes personal prayer this is a nightmare scenario. this is the country that judges you on the basis of who you vote for and will put you in jail if you vote the wrong way. not a defense of any room and oh conduct that occurred january 6th. but the events that day, keep in mind, were organized demonstration against the unequal enforcement of the law in this country over the past four years. that's exactly what we have seen period. anyone awake knows it is true. instead of -- people are upset, what are they upset about? our leaders doubled down on unequal treatment under the law. that's what they are doling out, even bigger helpings at this point. criminals with the right politics sever no consequences. in some cases those criminals
are enforcing the law themselves. the former deputy at fbi director admitted to lying to federal investigators per that's a felony, by the way. unlike parading in the capitol. never lectured about his vaccine status by some lunatic prosecutor. just got his federal pension back and he's tracked down mike bragging about on television. >> to have a settlement of this lawsuit and won it so clearly in the case, this should have never happened. it is both an incredible relief, satisfying, but also kind of sad. there should have never had happened. my family should've never had to go through this. this is the current department of justice standing up for fairness. >> tucker: what? you are the country's second in line and our biggest law enforcement agency. and you've admitted committing a
felony. all that happened to you was you lost your federal benefits? and you say that was unfair? you're still whining about it even if you got it back? are you the same eddie mccabe who destroyed my flynn's life and bankrupted him on the charge of lying to federal investigators? that charge engineered by andy mccabe for the sole purpose of getting rid of michael flynn at the behest of barack obama and his cronies. we are and speculate about this because the fbi document's prove it. on a document that's literally "get him to live." never punished for it. he still has a seat waiting for him on cnn. and when he lied speaking to new speakers or media, he was getting attention back and celebrating on national television. why is that? because andy mccabe is on the right side. he's a member of the national security state which the left now generates because the state is on their side.
the fbi will put up local dissidents which justifies killings and a body applauds when they die. so she was unarmed, and yet watch this is andy mccabe's defenders justify shooting her because the fbi says she was somehow a threat to national security. >> ashley babbitt trained by our tax dollars just killed! she was a military member. if she had gotten to the door, god knows what kind of horror she could've done. >> two plus two equals four. ashley babbitt, all those who attacked the capital are terrorist because the fbi director says it was an active . >> say ashley babbitt was leading the mob and shot by a brave officer who was last line of defense in many of these members where the slowest because they were having the hardest of getting out. if they had been overrun by that
mob, people would've been killed. >> tucker: yep. you want that to get frustrated and you are reminded that these people are so stupid it's amazing that they can breathe unaided and that is some comfort there they told you that ashley babbitt was trying to kill people! really? people in the air force trained to kill people? she was not warned by the way before she was shot. we see the results of that investigation. we know the man who shot her was complete reckless, left a loaded firearm in the men's room in the capitol. that's clearly over the line in a functional country. to see those goals gloating about the death of an unarmed woman? how would they treat you? so they are telling me for the crime in the capitol building, ashley babbitt's are to executed. once committed by people who are
actually -- 18-year-old who opened fire in his classroom shot several people, got out of jail in a single day. told us he was bullied. yet another victim of white supremacy. that's fine. his firearm winds up in a trash bin behind the grocery store and disappears. public safety, anyone? not according to the government. the feds not care about his gun. the secret service showed up which was not working for him at the time. went to the gun store to shred the paperwork showing that hunter biden committed a felony by lying to the federal government when he acquired a gun. if you are the president's son, you can commit a federal gun felony and nobody cares. the worse they'll do is invite you on their shows and let you explain it away. >> why did you have a gun? >> tucker: well, again, it was
a period of my life that was difficult. you know, i know now. >> at one point the secret service went looking? do you know anything about that? >> nothing. >> you do know about the secret service being involved? >> no. i don't think that's true. >> tucker: right! is not like you were left up or anything. so you can make gun lie about it in the laziest possible way and nobody really cares. but if you dared to criticize the incompetent military, they send you to prison. you try to visit your sick daughter in the hospital, you get arrested. >> i told them i was not going to leave my daughter's side. she had taken a turn for the worse and i wanted to stay and i told him i wasn't leaving. the nurse said she had to call security. i said do whatever you have to do but i'm not leaving my
daughter's side. >> tucker: good for you. i really think you for doing that. they handcuffed you? >> yes. they handcuffed me behind my back and let me out to the cruiser where i sat for three hours with my hands cuffed behind my back. >> tucker: what was your crime? were you spreading covid to people? what did you do wrong exactly? >> stay past 7:00. >> tucker: handcuffed her grandmother because she went past 7:00. shooting an unarmed woman without warning her because he didn't like what she was saying. but you show up at a school board meeting and object to your 14 year being raped in a bathroom, that's when you get them under the ground. >> i told the lady what happened to my daughter and she looked dead in the face and said, that's not what happened. and that you're struck me like... how do you know what happened?
you don't even know me. she started on me again and threaten my family business, my livelihood. everything that, you know, gives my family what we need, she threatened to ruin my business on social media. the next thing i know, i'm getting touched from all over the face. i didn't know who was touching me, who was grabbing me. i turned around, the police are grabbing me and the next thing i know i'm tackled to the ground. >> tucker: we could go on and on can we give you all night giving example after example. here's the bottom line. they are not for a defunding the police, they are for repurchasing the police but not against the use of force. they embrace the use of force as long as it's against a political opponent. they are letting criminals off the hook and redefining people who oppose criminals, the only one to get punishment would form a government is this?
it's not democracy, it's anarcho tyranny. this is a threat to the very center of the american ideal, which is a quality for the law. everybody treated for the same because there is a system. you can burn a wendy's but defend your own property, state your views on the last election, and you go to jail. that's true. by the way, next month we are releasing a multipart series on this topic. it's the best thing we have ever made. tell you much more about it soon. it'll be on fox nation. one thing we learn the last 24 hours, you can say pretty much whatever you want in this country. but there are limits, guardrails. the main one is you cannot make fun of pete buttigieg. you must take pete buttigieg very seriously.
>> tucker: you probably heard something about havana syndromeo according to press accounts, american diplomats are falling ill because of this secret sonic weapon. this mystery began in 2016 in havana. here's how nbc news reported on it. >> washing dishes one night in march. >> the kids were upstairs playing and i was standing in the kitchen window and all of a sudden i felt like i was being struck with something. >> what was it like? >> it's like i had been seized
and i could not move. >> didn't know it then, they were the victims of a still on his plane phenomenon that has been come to be known as havana syndrome with more than 200 americans around the world, mostly u.s. diplomats and spies reporting neurological and other symptoms. >> it's pretty imprecise. the big theory at nbc news is that vladimir putin is behind it. >> what we know of who could be behind these attacks?? >> that's a good question for the leading theory is this could've started with a device that russia invented during theh cold war. collecting data from laptops and cell phones. but now a hostile country could turn it into a weapon. russia denied anything about it. >> we haven't established there are attacks or any of this is real. one professor looking into it quite deeply has serious doubts
it is real but robert with he joinsus tonight. professor, thanks so much for joining us. somewhat of a delay so i'm going to ask my question that i hope you will answer it in full. you after looking into this quite extensively seem convinced that this is in fact not a physical symptom at all, this is not a weapon that it something else. tell us whatt you think it is, f you would. >> this case can be summarized in a single sentence. when you see the sound -- first thing course is, not. doctors at the state department want the most exotic hypothesis early on. they were searching for unicorns when they should've stuck to the mundane. thereth was absolutely no credie evidence that what happened in cuba involved brain damage. if you can show me that involved
brain damage, i'll resign my position at the department of psychological medicine at university of auckland. now what has happened is there are two things going on here. you got what happened in cuba early on, a classic textbook case of mass psychogenic illness. started in a small close-knit group of cia agents who are hearing these noises at night and one of them had ear pain and headache andhe he went to the embassy and said, it felt like somebody was pointing a beam of sound at my head. when they started to record these attacks, they turned out to be theur mating calls of the indie short tailed cricket, jamaican field cricket, and the caribbean cicada. what you've got is a case of mass psychogenic illness going on in cuba. you got the secondary case around the world, which is different. what'ser going around the worlds mass suggestion. the state department and the department of defense have
issued alarms to all their employees around the world to be on the alert for "havana syndrome," symptoms that include difficulty concentrating, insomnia, very vague symptoms. there is an old saying, "speak of the devil and he's bound to appear." this is right out of the witch hunts of 1692 when somebody would visit your house, you'dd feel unwell, and you'd claim you'd be bewitched. so what has happened in the claims that are going on, it's just not true and it's very frustrating to see cnn, cbs, other news agencies claiming that what happened initially in cuba was "brain damage." that was from two studies, the journal of the american medical association. serious mythological flaws. it's just not true. >> tucker: american news media stoking the present neuroses of
our ruling class, that's phenomenon we are quite familiar with. we appreciate you coming on tonight. you're the only voice in this on the side that you are taking. we are glad you are here. thank you. >> thank you. >> we didn't plan to spend a lot of time talking about pete buttigieg, and that somehow he was from the democratic primaries to transition secretary. tonight we have a correction. let's get that straight. ahead.
>> the reason people are so upset and social media right now is not because the marines on the battlefield let someone down. service members always rose to the occasion. people are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying, we messed things up. >> tucker: instead of -- they punish them. they try to crush them. pleaded guilty to those charges. just before e the sentences pha, appeared in good spirits. watch. >> what you respect happened today? >> we left it all on the table. so let's see what they did. i feel good about everything that i said. >> demand served honorably for 17 years, exactly the kind of
person you want protecting your country. now he is gone. after that, the judge rejected, he reprimanded went to pay. also called for an investigation of possible government misconduct. thank god he did. that misconduct wasn't possible, it was certain. thank you so much for coming on. how is your son doing? >> he's doing well, tucker. thank you for giving us a slot to bring our plight to the american people and talking to congresspeople and thank you to the americans who showed up. it where the americans that showed up, spoke their voice, set up with our son and that's n,the reason why he's not in the brig today waiting for months and months for a court-martial to finally happen. it was because of your voice. we can't thank you enough. i want to tell you that
accountability showed up in that court room a big way. i would like to thank judge hines for carefully looking through all the evidence, listening to our son's complete and total statement, not a single blemish on it until the fatal day of the botch withdrawal from afghanistan and the 13 service members killed. he recognized it for what it was. he gave the lenient sentence and we just cannot thank you, america, enough. i can smile.e. >> tucker: what a sad day for the country. i think all americans look at your son and say that's exactly the one i want as a marine officer defending us. your son spent 17 years in this job. must be poignant from him to haveve to wait. >> is not over yet. we all think it's over. it is not over.
>> here is what you are not going to hear from the marine corps spokespeople. it's not over. the plea deal that stewart agreed to while in prison was to plead guilty, which by the way, was always his intent. he accepts accountability. he pleaded guilty to the charges, pleaded guilty to the charges and in return the marine corps and the secretary navy agreed to accept his resignation. the only concern is there is no time limit on that. that could be a week, could be a month, could be months. still have him on the gag order and that's why we are out here talking tonight. tell you what. the final decision-maker is the secretary of the navy carlos del toro. he is responsible for assigning his resignation and accepting his resignation. you can google the secretary of
the navy and you can find hisna address, he can find his email address. we would like an honorable discharge. we would americans to contact the secretary of the navy and ask himav the expedited. >> no doubt he will and we could wait till austin, he pleads guilty andnd resigned his job because he thank you very much. >> tucker: a quick correction, last night we made a brief offhand joke about the secretary of transportationfh pete buttigieg. this morning we discovered our error. turns out that pete buttigieg was once the mayor of south bend, indiana. so understandably we have strict orders from the biden administration to take pete buttigieg very, very serious. of course we will.
our mistake. no surprise that novelist walter novel.s the eye for the you're going to want to hear his assessment. that's 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: everything about the country has changed over the past 18 months including how americans see one another. walter kern is a pretty skilled novelist who writes about america. to his eyes, the changes are profound. we sat down with them for an hour. it's worth hearing. here's part of it. a lot of us have the sense of the countryy has changed quite a bit in the last year and a half. >> that sense to be correct. >> tucker: give us your take how you think it has changed
just from reporting on it. >> the united states is a place that even though it appears a margin is in the media that has a lot of pockets and a lot of differences in it. regional accidents and, you know, foodstuffs and so on have gotten a little bit homogenous due to the sort of corporatization of everyday life. still when you get on the ground and you talk to, alabama, essay, you experience 30 different littlebl countries. those places i think have this as this be 26 thing hit, had become almost invisible to us. we are not traveling as much as we use to, not driving around, not talking to strangers we are hearing a lot in theo news about the unvaccinated or the trump voter, or the redneck, the people who actually live underneath the airline routes.
and they are being blamed for a lot, they are being accused of sort of not supporting all sorts of national and governmental edicts. and i think they are kind of hunkered down starting to feel victimized by the culture at large and have lostt their voic. he asked how the countries changed. it's not so much the actuality in people's lives have changed, it's's our view has gotten very simplistic and hostile, i think. >> tucker: the group you are speaking about are the people who built the country and fought its wars, grew its food. no how to fix broken machines.ch kind of an essential brook and probably most patriotic. how have they been treated, do you think? >> i think the average american
out in the so-called red states, a big part of a lot of blue states are red too. >> tucker: that's right. >> i think they've been treated terribly. they've been through about a 40 year cycle of social abuse, if you want to put it that way. they have lost their jobs, especially jobs in manufacturing due to napped up. have weathered huge drug plagues visited on them by pharmaceutical companies, not cartels.drug they have bidden the cannon fodder in our endless wars, and they have now come in for the kind of abuse that i think may lead to real civil disorder because they are being blamed for a pandemic that was actually fomented at the highest levels
by scientists and dr. strangelove mad scientists. once again, the guy in paducah, kentucky, inter-mississippi who is being told that he is at fault for national weakness, for people in the hospital, for covid resurgent -- despite the fact that it's not true. it is a kind of scapegoating that is detestable because you are blaming the very weakest, the people who over and over have been the butt of jokes. a kind of hostility it seems never to end. >> tucker: one of the great few artists. you can see the full interview
on fox nation. what did we learn tonight? one, pete buttigieg is fully capable of giving us a lecture. the air force, the air force! trained ashley babbitt to kill! you know what is true. don't forget it. have a great weekend with the ones you love. we'll see you monday. >> announcer: americans held hostage, day 62. >> 62 days our fellow americans, families and friends, green card holders, our allies, joe biden abandon all of them and hasn't talked to them in over 40 days. the images coming out of afghanistan, they are horrific. everything we told you what happened. look at the pictures obtained
