tv The Ingraham Angle FOX News November 16, 2021 7:00pm-8:00pm PST
>> sean: unfortunately, that is all the time we have left this evening. as always, we know you make this show possible, thank you for being with us. please set your dvr so you never miss an episode. we will be at the patriot awards tomorrow night in florida we will still be doing the show live. i have good news in the meantime, let not your hearts be troubled because laura ingraham is standing by, she's got a big show tonight. >> laura: what happens when we are all together in one place? >> what do you mean, what happens? nothing. >> laura: we have lightning rods out there that will take away the lightning and we minimize any threats. foxes like to let her speak anymore. we'll have a great time tomorrow. >> one day, i might be there coming to the rescue, just be careful. >> laura: i'm going to stand right next to you because i feel
safer, frankly. i will just stand next he would not say anything. i'm not saying anything the entire time. >> have a great show. >> laura: we will see you tomorrow night, awesome show tonight as always. i'm laura ingraham, this is "the ingraham angle" on a busy tuesday. last month, attorney general merrick garland testified that the fbi wasn't targeting concerned parents. now it doj whistle-blower has come forward to say that's a lie. congressman jim jordan's committee received that complaint and he is here tonight exclusively, but first, democrats dangerous mutation is the focus of tonight's angle. kind of the perfect harmony captured in that old coca-cola commercial. ♪ ♪
>> laura: you see what you missed a beat didn't grow up then? great commercials. they were kind of nonthreatening hippies who wax poetics about things like world peace, tolerance, and free speech for anyone. even though this is the most reprehensible views. say what you want about the flower power crowd but they understood that the first amendment applied to all, not a select few. then back then, liberal democrats considered debate a good thing. they regularly do get out in a robust exchange of ideas. >> your description hardly fits that of someone was moderately well-informed. i am so happy to see your elegant prose style at its very best and right, it's very inspiring to those of us listening to it.
>> laura: over time, that live and let live spirit give way to a dark twisted variant. it turned out that dominating in politics wasn't quite as easy as dominating so convincing voters that your policies are going to improve lives requires more than just messaging skill. it requires sound policies. so now has biden's agenda failed at home and abroad, we've seen more infectious mutation spreading through the ranks. among the most avirulent is there new opposition to free speech. this variant in a royally bad one, just today, prince harry joined the left-wing institute in calling on big tech to hold super spreaders to account with policies that enable quicker, more decisive actions and penalties commensurate with their impact. good for you, harry.
of course, was super spreading his noxious ideas around the globe no problem. this mutation has also metastasized in the biden administration where we just learned from whistle-blower documents that biden's fbi is now tracking so-called threats against radical who push lockdowns and the crt insanity. when i say threats, of course i mean uncomfortable questions or plain criticisms from concerned parents. we will dive into this later on in the hour. anyway, so much for the question of authority bumper. remember that? that used to be all the rage among liberals. now the left celebrates authoritarian tactics as long as they are used against their political opponents. now, another mutation is with the left calls antiracism but it's just plain old racism. we are all taught to abhor that
growing up. it's different now and the strain is particularly damaging to schoolkids which is exactly where the left is spreading it. >> very important we talk about these intersectionality's and a very important we are aware of how our children posit what is most important about their identities. as professionals, it is on you to understand the district's racial equity policy and it's on you to understand your school's racial equity plan and how these things can be carried out in your classrooms. >> laura: i promise, that is not a video of the onion web site, that is actually real. when parents point out it sounds sickening and repulsive, this toxic curriculum, the left just turns and smears them as vile bigots. as business insider notes today, democrats won democrat
strategist said it's not just that republicans want a bigger role is that they are willing to let white supremacists right curriculum. that's what's happening. thankfully, voters in virginia and other states have been inoculated against these ludicrous claims at this point but then there's a third mutation we need to address tonight. it's the evolution of the left from pro-privacy rights zealots to anti-privacy rights fanatics. unless you are dabbling or having multiple abortions were getting gender reassignment surgery, democrats and liberals are fine if they are shaming, isolating, and punishing anyone who is unvaccinated. just today, bill de blasio gleefully uninvited the on vaccinated to the biggest night of the year. >> a strong, full strength celebration is coming back this
new year's eve, times square, everyone come on down, we are celebrating. now, let's do it the right way and the safeway but everyone needs to be vaccinated at all you need to do is have that proof of vaccination and a valid photo i.d. in >> laura: question, is the crystal ball going to be vaccinated? no word on that. another manifestation of this mutation is how the left relishes and imposing severe covid mandates on americans but not the illegals they are letting stream across our southern border. >> how many illegal aliens have you released that were covid positive? you don't have that answer either. >> my should we mandate that they shouldn't be vaccinated? >> the analysis for migrants encountered at the border is quite different than for the federal workforce that leads by
example. >> laura: finally, the most noxious and threatening of all these mutations, the left's new support for violence and rioting to get their way. now, they treated blm and antifa riots as they like to call it just the summer of love. >> how long do you think it looks like this? >> i don't know, we could have the summer of love. we've been covering these various preschool protests, it's not violence. >> mostly a protest, it is not generally speaking unruly. >> our country was started because -- the boston tea party, rioting. >> laura: i don't think i can see that montage to get on the show, frankly. that's how sick it makes me. this is an infection the leftists are spreading, laying
the groundwork for more violence so lying about underlying facts in any case including in the rittenhouse case where the jury is out now, they are setting up a powder keg scenario for kenosha, wisconsin. >> there are definitely two americas and two criminal justice systems. >> repeatedly hamstrung by the judge it almost every turn. >> of biased, racist to judge with trump rally cell phone that is trying to get him to walk. >> basically what they're saying is it's okay to shoot white people. >> he is not a martyr, he is a murderer. >> laura: now if rittenhouse is equated and violence follows, the blood will be on their hands. to them, any harm that comes to people in these kind of scenarios is justifiable, collateral damage. it's all part of the great racial reckoning.
they think maybe it will net them even more power over your speech, your thoughts, your daily activities. the more americans exposed to these new variants of the left, the faster they are developing their own natural immunity. the red states, rural america, virginia has joined them within this year, a lot of americans will show they are rejecting the new hard left variant in voting for the old normal and that's the angle. joining me now is and by the senate, owner of all of her oliver's bakery located about 2 miles from the kenosha courthouse and and i know people are on pins and needles where you are but what is the mood among small business owners in the area and are you concerned about more violence? >> yes, i am.
we are all on pins and needles like you said. it is a day-to-day event of loss worrying about whether we come back in the morning and our businesses are here. i did notice today a lot of the small business owners down my street have started to remove things like remove collectors cards from their lots, things are a little bit easy because we just don't know what is going to come next. >> laura: i spent a lot of time -- i'm sorry, i spent a lot of time in minnesota and that's minnesota nice and then to minnesota was burning after floyd. people think of wisconsin and they think this is the most beautiful part of the country, incredibly great people of all backgrounds, you don't think of kenosha, wisconsin, as a place where you're going to have people shooting at each other,
burning down buildings and small businesses kind of worrying if they're going to be able to open up shop the next day. what happened to america? >> i have no idea. all i know is this is not kenosha. this is not the way i was raised. before this whole thing, i still left my door is unlocked. i suppose i shouldn't say that, but i did. it was a very community oriented place where you would greet people that came to you especially with the bakery, people coming from all over the state, out of state coming to visit and i wanted to maintain that, we all do because small businesses make up this town and make it special and with all this happening, it is so scary because the small businesses can't survive. half of them that were destroyed never came back in other ones had to move and the ones that
are left are struggling. we are afraid not just from these riots but even from covid, every day is like a struggle here and so i don't know what's next. >> laura: my heart breaks for the small business owners knowing how hard it is to make a payroll after covid, you see your bakery behind you and i have friends of mine who patronize that bakery, it's fabulous, been in business for 70 years, something like that, is that right? >> yes, this place right behind me was built in 1949 and it has remained in business all the way up until today and my son and i are running it now and we want to continue to have it keep going. >> laura: wisconsin governor tony evers has ordered 500 wisconsin national guard
troops to be on standby in case things go bad. is there anything else you want from your political leaders given the devastation you saw last summer? >> i just want kenosha to stay strong. i wish that we could have more support. what happened last summer shouldn't have happened. it was too devastating to go through and it was like a war zone. that is not something that people should even know. my grandson had to see this and i feel sorry for him that way, so yes, the support from outside coming in to help us if needed is wonderful. at least we are a step further than we were last summer. >> laura: i want to thank you for coming on tonight, brave of you to do so and good luck. joining me now is victor davis hanson, institution senior
fellow. i want to play a moment of honest reflection from msnbc about what was going on outside the kenosha courthouse today. watch. >> the people who were protesting against what rittenhouse stated, do they think that he will be convicted just when they were talking to you? >> frankly, they don't and part of this is pushing that. they want to push and pressure of the jury or pressure of the court to hold title rittenhouse accountable in their words. >> laura: so victor, their role there is to try to scare the jury. the jury knows they are out there, they're going to torch kenosha if they don't get their way. again, how did we get here, what set this all in motion? >> it had something to do with kyle rittenhouse and has nothing to do with him. the case was pretty clear. he was an armed 17-year-old who is being pursued by two convicted felons who wanted to
hurt him and another person who had an arrest for illegal use of firearms but in the other sense, it was like saying hands up, don't shoot in ferguson with the covington kids were bullying a vietnam combat veteran or that trave on martin was an innocent victim of george zimmerman's pathological impulses. they pop up in the news, the media, the left, the radical democratic party, they use them to exploit and leverage for these larger agendas. they don't have 51% and its vertical race theory, et cetera, so they try to leverage them and that's why they become so absurd because when you look at the actual trial, there's nothing that they can relieve basic conviction on so you have the absurdities of a d.a. in the
aftermath of the baldwin case pointing a gun with his hand on the trigger at the jurors or you have another prosecutor saying everybody should take a beating. he was really a man, he'd go out and fight, a 17-year-old will take on dozens. it is all about race when all the players in this tragedy were all white and we have the president of the united states earlier end of august tweeting this was about supremacy and this is a person who in that context i just called one of his senior aides boy, an african-american and then he talked about satchel paige and yet he is lecturing the country on kyle rittenhouse who he knows nothing about his being a white supremacist so they are trying to leverage these things and they can't and that's why they seem so absurd. it doesn't mean they're not dangerous. they have an agenda. >> laura: they are increasingly frustrated that they can just bully their way through every situation and over
on msnbc, they couldn't help but reference january 6th, watch. >> the things that we heard in the red bottle that really makes sense and encounters with the defense was attempting to do with the fact that they called rittenhouse a chaos terrorist. it reminds you a little bit about the january 6th insurrection, this idea that you have people that showed up armed to do harm that is exactly what kyle rittenhouse did as a chaos terrorist. >> laura: they are never chaos protesters, are they? go ahead. >> we've already had the fbi ran extensive investigations, the one thing they found as it was not an insurrection and they are worried now because there was a reckoning in georgia, a midterm coming up and they're going to take a huge hit and people are getting very angry and they're sick of this and they know it and they are trying to find any occasion to rip up this racial
animosity and cause chaos, anarchy so they can leverage these agendas because these people are speaking and they're afraid of it. when you have dave chappelle or bill maher or larry summers all across the spectrum saying this can't go on my this is not and everybody in america knows it and they finally are waking up in the left is terrified and that's why it sounds so crazy. >> laura: victor, i'm glad you got his name wrong. dave chappelle, he's another cultural icon who seems to say this is all ridiculous. victor, thank you. as always, great to see you. explosive new documents confirm the biden administration as of weaponized the counterterrorism division against concerned parents. the congressmen who receive this complaint has the details. he's next.
>> the justice department supports and defends the first amendment right of parents to complain as vociferously as they wish. i can't imagine any circumstance in which the patriot act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children nor can i imagine the circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism.
>> laura: don't you just wish that guy was on the supreme court? new documents reveal that one day before attorney general merrick garland denied targeting concerned parents, they were planning to do just that. on october 20th, the fbi's criminal and counterterror division issued a memo asking them to use a so-called threat tag to track investigations and assessments of threats pacifically directed against administrators and other school personnel. in other words, spying on parents who question or criticize the dictates of far left edge of kratz. we would have never known any of this if an unnamed whistle-blower hadn't come out, spoken out, reached out to republicans on the house oversight committee. joining me now is the committee's ranking member, ohio congressman jim jordan.
did the -- was he telling the truth to congress but would you be willing to believe he really didn't know what was being planned by his own justice department at the time? >> either lied to us or doesn't know. either one is bad for the country, bad for justice in america. understand this, as we speak at this moment, the fbi is, not may be, is treating parents as terrorist threats. in the attorney general came in front of the committee and said just the opposite. you just played the clip, said i cannot imagine any circumstance where we treat parents or give them the label of domestic terrorists but the day before as you pointed out, and email gets sent out to agents across this country saying just the opposite, said give them this threat tag, categorize, label parents. when i first read this, i thought this is no different
than what they did a few years ago when they had that list, be on the lookout for these organizations and they had a list of american citizens just like the fbi is doing now so either didn't know which is terrible or misled the committee when he came in front of us and we need to have him back plain and simple. >> laura: what he said is we are not criminalizing or accusing people who disagree, that's a constitutional right to disagree, we would not do that. this is about actual threat of violence. and to that, you say? >> remember how this all started. we have to understand the timeline. a left-wing political organization as the president of the united states to get the fbi involved where to five days later, the attorney general does just that. october 20th, have this email that goes out about this threat tag and then october 21st, comes
in front of the committee and tells us all this. october 22nd, the organization that started it all apologizes for their memo and withdraws their letter. though we've asked and will you resend the memo and stop what you've put in place and put into action? you will not resend or withdraw or stop it. that's the part that concerns me and we have sent out countless letters, the fbi, the school board association, the education department, we need answers because it sure looks like without a doubt this is happening, they are targeting moms and dads across this country for simply speaking out and saying we don't want this racist curriculum taught to our kids. imagine that. >> laura: it seems to me that with the midterms coming up and by the looks of it, going to be a republican wipe out of the
democrats, they see that this issue is a potent one and do you agree that the goal here is to intimidate parents against showing up and getting involved across the country? this is like wildfires catching on. >> they are trying to chill first amendment free speech. this is all about intimidating parents but one thing i know is you're not going to intimidate moms and dads. no high paid lobbyist ever eats a mom on a mission. here's the great thing, courage is contagious. we sought in virginia. one mom stands up, when dad stands up, then it's a whole community saying that with my kids. that's what is so wrong about this and you're exactly right, this guy was the smartest man on the planet, had to be on the supreme court and the american people, he didn't even know there was a press release that accompanied his memo and it
talked about getting the national security division, the counterterrorism division involved in this effort. that is frightening, didn't know it and that is even more wrong so he'd better come back in front of our committee and be willing to answer some tough questions about this and he should stop this process right now. >> laura: do you think the biden white house is putting undue influence on the justice department here for political reasons? that's a serious charge because said that's not happening, they are independent, totally different from trump, that's with a big point was today. your reaction to that. >> press reports that they talk with the association before the initial letter was ever sense. we know that when president biden goes out and criticizes the pro-life lawn texas, eight days later, the justice department bring the suit. when he went out and criticized the changes, felix later, what happens? they go out and bring suit and we know what happened here, the
white house coordinated with a left-wing political organization and they do exactly what this left-wing political organization asked for and we found out now they are treating parents as domestic terrorists when the attorney general told us just the opposite, of course they are political. anyone with half a brain can see that. >> laura: what is it called, a terror tag? it sounds bag. it is called a threat tag but point of fact, it is a domestic terrorist tag what they're putting on moms and dads for goodness sake. >> laura: congressman, thank you so much. here now with us is apparent in virginia. this truly is -- i keep saying it doesn't seem like the united states of america, but here we are. what message do you think this will send to parents across the country who may have wanted to get involved but they didn't
really want any trouble? >> i didn't want trouble when i went to the county school board and asked them to open schools for the mental health of our children and simply for doing that, they put me on a hit list and called me a racist in the next thing i knew, had people in front of the house taking pictures. my computer was hacked, my cell phone was hacked and i understand the fear that goes along with being targeted. my whole thing with that is i can do one of two things. shut the drapes and stay inside and let them win or i could come out and i could speak to anyone that could listen and say we can't allow this in our country and if something happens then they would know it's for speaking out so please don't stop, please keep speaking out and i would say if it's illegal for citizens to target government officials online, your calling us domestic
terrorists and have the fbi at us to a watch list? how is that not then equally or if not a greater offense to have government officials targeting its citizens and their minor children? >> laura: i think parents will have to file a class action lawsuit against the department of justice were doing this because it's violating your constitutional rights, might be a creative lawsuit but i think there is some action that could be filed there. the biden administration on top of everything else that's going on, all the challenges you all are facing now we find out that they have airlifted thousands of afghan refugees across the united states and many enter virginia and now the kids of these afghan refugees, many of them undivided are attending public schools. that's a supreme court precedent. "the washington post" as saying
that because of a lag in budget cycles, refugees arrived in the school systems that have not been fully funded yet to serve them. a professor at rutgers often educators scramble to adjust. we've actually submitted a request asking how many students had been admitted without any real documentation, what did you find out? >> i found out that there were almost 1300 students that fell into the statutes which were children that didn't have the same documentation that i required to provide for my children and that they might not be unvaccinated as well. different vaccinations to be in schools and i started looking into it and i found out that the kids from afghanistan that were coming in and first of all, i fully support having kids in
school from the folks that served our military in afghanistan, i can't say enough about those are heroes and their kids deserve a great -- i just think we need to slow the role and make sure that they have the same vaccinations our children have. >> laura: elizabeth, here's the problem, the biden administration didn't bet most of these people, they are not all interpreters and translators, probably like 125,000 people in the country and we've got thousands of people pouring into virginia all across the country, don't know who they are, not the kids fall, we all know that but your school has been through a lot and now they have to hire speakers in addition to the 20 other languages spoken. we've got to go but we are just beginning to see this. >> we are and it will be an interesting year, thank you again for having me. >> laura: good to see you. coming up, the question on
everyone's mind, what actually happened during biden and xi jinping's big video chat yesterday? bill haggerty has some thoughts next. clearchoice. [ awada ] the health of our teeth plays a significant role in our overall health. chantell was suffering, and we had to put an end to that. the absolute best way to do that was through dental implants. [ chantell ] clearchoice dental implants changed everything. my digestive health is much better now. i feel more energetic. the person that i've always been has shown up to the party again.
>> seems to me our responsibility as leaders in china and the united states is to ensure that the competition between our countries does not come into conflict whether intended or unintended, simple straightforward competition. >> laura: and by competition, he means the ccp gets whatever it wants while american workers and businesses as usual get the shaft. but can we trust a sanitized readout of the call provided by the white house? for instance, the white house claims that president biden underscored that the u.s. remains committed to the one china policy and strongly opposes attempts to undermine peace and stability across the taiwan strait but the ccp claims
that biden said he does not support taiwan independence. so what did biden really say in this video chat with his old friend? joining me now is bill haggerty. senator, gordon chang one of the most brilliant writers on china affairs was on the podcast today and he said that we need congressional inquiries into exactly what was committed to or discussed in this call because we can't trust this readout. do you agree? >> i totally agree. he's been great at this and we saw the old friends get together, we know that happen. also aware of the biden families deep financial relationship with china so i think he has every right to be concerned. >> laura: joe biden insist that this is a relationship that is competitive yet there are common goals of guarding against excessive climate change and all going to be working essentially
in the same direction, china will be lagging behind but nevertheless, this is a good start into that, you say what? >> i'd say from the reports i've seen one of the most embarrassing things that came from it was the fact that we had the president of the united states reaching out to the premier of china asking for a lifeline. joe biden asking president xi to release strategic oil reserves to help cool off skyrocketing oil prices we are seeing because of biden's failed energy policies. biden should look within. >> laura: many of the embarrassing thing is, that's one of the most embarrassing. i think he knows exactly how to make biden look really weak in the knees, watch this exchange. >> a sound and steady china organization is required for our
countries and a stable international environment to global challenges for climate change which you have referenced and the covid pandemic. >> laura: biden is like when is the bocce ball starting? china's coal production, isn't it hitting an all-time high? am i missing something there? you look at the chart and increased admissions while we are cutting ours, who can trust him? >> all the gains made by the rest of the world combined. >> laura: senator, next year in the midterm elections, people will be focused on gas prices, food prices, the value of the dollar will clearly continue to decline, how will republicans and democrats of sound mind discuss china in a way that connects with the average voter
out there, why does this matter? >> you have lead on this issue for years, president trump did an amazing job of converting the entire discussion about china in a way the american public now understands that china is our most strategic adversary. it used to be cheap christmas tree lights and cheap t-shirts coming from china and china was our friends. you, president trump and a few others have fundamentally changed that dialogue and i was people look at the election in 2022, i think they will understand a lot of the policies we've undertaken here in america since biden took the office of president and driven this inflation through the roof and china has gained every turn. >> laura: senator, yes or no, do you think we should be educating 340,000 chinese students in the united states right now given everything that's on the line, yes or no? >> i am very concerned about this. my friend tom cotton has been, this is something we need to
look into input and then to this indiscriminate opening of our american universities to chinese students. >> laura: they are addicted to the buck. sorry to cut you off there, running late. remember when the biden white house said inflation was transitory and then said their bills with lower inflation and now they claim to republicans are rooting for inflation. congressman jim banks is here, that in a moment.
>> we are going to lower costs for you and your families. your life is going to change for the better and that's literal. we are taking a monumental step forward in building back better for this nation. they said they will actually bring down the cost, reduce the deficit and it will totally be paid for. >> laura: well, that's joe biden saying that build back better is going to solve all of our problems, going to be a windfall of revenue for the united states but of course, throwing cold water on that. falling well short and joining me now is indiana congressman, this explains why pelosi and pals are trying to ram this bill
through as quickly as possible. the score on this is going to be ugly. they know it, we know it, but they don't really care. >> that is so true. the democrats have literally lied to us about everything. they lied about inflation being transitory, lied about the border crisis being seasonal, lied about how many americans were left behind in afghanistan when they pulled out of afghanistan and now they're lying to us about this bill. they say it's 1.75 trillion, we know that cbi was going to come out and scored closer to 4 trillion, they know that, that's why the biden administration today came out and poured cold water, they used to love the cbo when we pass the tax cuts, came out and applauded the score then but now laying the groundwork by pouring cold water on whatever they come out with here in the next couple of days. they are lying to us about the effects of this socialist spending bill they are trying to vote on sometimes weak.
>> laura: just so people understand what this means, these increases of prices mean to the average family out there, the cost of meat and poultry, basic food items since october of 2020, they have risen almost 12%. according to the government's consumer price index, the price of beef has climbed even further, 20% higher than last year, chicken a 7.5%, pork is 14%, but pork is cheap in washington, d.c., is it not? that's easy to find. >> that's right. we've never seen a president's poll numbers tank badly is joe biden's, his popularity has gone down so badly and it's because of inflation because the american people are seeing the effects of the disastrous biden and democrats socialist agenda and what it's doing to hurt
every day working americans, working families. it is drastic. people feel it, they are hurting because of these democrats agenda. the good news as it is paving the way for republicans to win back the majority and a big way and the midterm election. the bad news is families are literally hurting as much now as they have in a very long time. >> laura: congressman, you know it, these are self-inflicted wounds and it's cruel what they're doing to the american people, it is cruel christmas time, anytime. thank you for leading on this. up next, the ingraham angle gets results again.
>> laura: last week a parent group in arizona discovered the president of scottsdale unified school district was operating a secret google drive full of research on outspoken parents. that after this was revealed, one of the parents targeted him on the show. >> we really need the district to step up and send out an apology and let us know that
they are investigating this and that, you know, we are calling for the resignation of this board president because parents, you know, felt threatened, they felt endangered and this is not something the district can just brush to the side. >> laura: lesson of the governing board voted to remove them as president of the school board. once again, "the ingraham angle" gets results. that's it for us tonight. [cheers and applause] ♪ ♪ >> greg: [laughs] i spit on myself! happy sometime in november, you freaks! what a show we've got for you. mike rowe is here in the house! is the first guest we had to hose down before the show. >> it was nice. >> greg: he's done s
