7:00 pm
merry christmas and a member, yes, a lot of the news is bad but this is where a sense of gratefulness and being blessed comes in. we are in the greatest country on earth founded by the greatest people, and we make a difference in everyone's lives. we always have, and that will not change. we will overcome this as we've overcome everything that the world has put to us, so it's an honor and a pleasure to be here with you. i'm grateful for the opportunity to see you. raymond arroyo is in tonight for laura ingraham. again, merry christmas, everyone, and merry christmas, raymond. >> raymond: merry christmas to you, tammy, great job. hope you enjoyed the day, and happy new year. i'm raymond arroyo in for laura ingraham. this is a special edition of "the ingraham angle." if you thought the covid vaccines would stop at three jabs, guess again. biden has some news for you. dr. marty macri weighs in. plus, biden has been forced to sign a new china trade bill into
7:01 pm
law, but how enforceable is it? steven mosher and walid phares are here on that and it's a christmas tragedy, a satanic art display place next to a nativity scene in illinois. it has franklin graham fuming. he will be here to hit back and jose feliciano and i may sing a christmas duet. stay tuned for that. but first. christmas is and will always be a holy season and a time i hold sacred, but years ago, seinfeld introduced its own yuletide celebration on december 23rd. they call it festiva's. >> the tradition begins with the airing of grievances. i've got a lot of problems with you people. now you're going to hear about it. >> raymond: a while i completely reject this pagan tradition, as they are comes to an end, i will avail myself of the airing of grievances. because i've got a lot of
7:02 pm
problems too. let's see if we share any of these. now, this year, we went down to the border and we brought you the ongoing chaos there. much of this was caused by biden's decisions. when he came into office, the president overturned prompts "remain in mexico" policy, he threatened to end title 42, the health measure that allowed agents to turn migrants away at the border, and he stopped construction of the wall. well, less than a year later, biden has found some border policies that work. he has reinstituted the "remain in mexico" policy, kept title 42 in place, and he's authorized the construction of parts of the trump wall. congratulations. this little experiment at the border, by the way, so more than 1.7 million migrants cross illegally this year. that's an all-time high. and those are only the ones the border agents had countered -- encountered. here's the wonderful news.
7:03 pm
you get to pay for their care and well-being for years to come. mary festivus. speaking of karen well-being, i have a huge grievance over the emotive concerns for people from foreign countries like afghanistan it is migrants, god bless them, but all the while we ignore the care and well-being of our own veterans. if one "the ingraham angle" -- a village of homeless that's unable to get into a facility donated for them. we were naturally enraged. and while the vets can now camp on the grounds of the facility, they are still outdoors and not in permanent housing. meanwhile, afghan refugees are housed in places like the bethesda hyatt regency hotel. this placement concern needs correction in the new year. i have a huge grievance against
7:04 pm
media misinformation. we hear that term a lot. if the american people are not stupid. they can see what's going on. trying to convince them that inflation is -- it is not working, guys. not on any level. and here's another grievance. stop trying to take credit for things that are not true, especially you, jen psaki. >> secretary psaki: we save christmas. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> raymond: truly -- celebrity only christmas concert there than it. only joe biden could manage to defame christmas, health care workers, and a great jerry herman song all of the same time. see anymore singing nurses.
7:05 pm
the shortage, your patients need you without accompaniment and choreography. thank you. and this is a big grievance that i've had really throughout 2021. our elder statesmen have got to stop talking about the past. that includes my pop, corn pop, and the election that went pop. >> president biden: it was like back in the day when my grandpa and dad used to say remember, joey -- goes up demand goes joey, baby, grabs my cheek. >> corn pop was a bad dude, and he ran a bunch of bad boys. >> raymond: bad boys. americans want leaders that will look to the future and point the way forward, not revisit old tales from the past. in fact, as much as i revere the things of the past, and i do, i hope we see no more reboots in 2022. this year we had sequels or prequels of "the matrix," "bill
7:06 pm
and ted's excellent adventure," "home alone," "the sopranos," "the wonder years," "sex and the city," be honest, the nostalgia was not worth the trip. you can't recreate what was. so let's just create new franchises for this generation, for this time. not regurgitate the past badly. and i grieve the pairing of younger pop stars with worn-out acts far past their prime. they looked know better an extra pop princess though you can decide which pairing this he was more offensive. >> let's sing "anything goes." >> okay. >> because nowadays, anything goes. i'm olivia roderigo and i'm here with president biden to talk about the importance of the vaccine. >> president biden: it's critical, especially people olivia's age. >> raymond: i think i will take god got invented over the other pair. at least they occasionally hit the right notes. i'm also aggrieved by the
7:07 pm
outrage and vindictiveness hurled at those who dared to speak their minds this year. whether it was dave chappelle, j.k. rowling, sharon osborne, gina verano, or the bachelor's chris harrison, each of them suffered for speech, thinking freely, and daring to express ideas, especially unpopular ones should not get people canceled. no words should be unforgivable. in fact, it's the nature of art to contradict the status quo and get us to think differently. >> to the transgender community, i am more than willing to give you an audience. but you will not summon me. i am not bending to anybody's demands. [cheers and applause] >> raymond: and here are some final scraps of grievance that must be mentioned. how does chrissy teagan get to stage a comeback while sharon osborne and j.k. rowling our in
7:08 pm
perpetual punish corner? >> one person said that you said something to her to this person saying "i can't wait for you to die," and you apologized and you apologized profusely. >> if you like there was honestly -- having this. lack of time and time to digest it all and to look back and realize that honestly there is always so much time to grow and to learn, and to become more empathetic. >> raymond: does everybody get to be forgiven for unfortunate nasty comments in 2022? does everybody get to be more empathetic? let's hope so. and what about hunter biden? he made millions off of his inc. spittle canvases this year. if you are i spit ink through a straw, somebody would call the police. but when the president is your daddy, it's called arch. and though i'm grieved by his hygiene failures, no one elevated coughing this year to the art form that joe biden did. >> president biden: since the end of october -- excuse me -- with private business and labor.
7:09 pm
excuse me. excuse me. >> raymond: poor man. i hope that new white house dog is carrying an oxygen tank on its back. and as we move towards midterms, neither mentions of january 6th, nor "let's go brandon" our governing agendas. i hope both parties are listening. i could go on and on. and feel free to send me your grievances on twitter, but here's the problem with festive us, with this airing of grievances. complaints only get you so far. it's fun and even therapeutic, it lacks something we desperately need when things do go wrong. and when times are so dark. faith and love. and those are best found near family and god at christmas. you have a merry one and a grievance-free christmastide. joining me is mercedes schlapp,
7:10 pm
former trump white house calms director and horace cooper, project 21 cochair. very christmas to you both. mercedes, did you share any of those grievances with me? >> oh my goodness! i think your list was longer than mine, raymond! but i've got to say, i think we can all agree that we are so ready for 2021 to be over. you've seen these poll numbers come out saying that half of the americans really think that it's been the worst year of their lives, but you know, i do think that in the midst of president biden really pushing the fact that those that are unvaccinated are going to have a very dark and very dreary winter, you know, i really remain hopeful. i really feel that there has been a rise of the american people, that we are strong, that we are resilient, that we will fight back against what i see forced vaccine mandates and fight back against these unfair
7:11 pm
really radical policies like crt and does gender confusion that they are pushing on our schools. it has been the rise of the americans, of the deplorable scum of the parents who have said no more, and i think that it's really been an awakening for so many americans to stand up against what i would call a radical agenda by many of these politicians and the people are saying no more, so we need to be hopeful. >> raymond: mercedes, it is curious how these policies at times radical policies have brought together this new coalition of hispanics and women and democrats and african-americans. it's very curious how that's all forming almost a new coalition. horace, kamala harris doesn't think she's to blame for any of this, or her abysmal poll numbers. "the new york times" reporting ms. harris has privately told her allies that the news coverage of her would be different if she were any of her 40th predecessors whom she has
7:12 pm
described as all white and male. horace, her approval recently hit 28%. does that explanation hold for you? is it racism or sexism? >> first let me say merry christmas, because this is a wonderful time to celebrate the greatest gift of all. i wish that as we head into 2022 that people like our vice president and other americans actually took some responsibility for their actions. you know, it's said that if you're digging a hole in your down to 28% approval rating, maybe you should stop digging. maybe you should reverse course. there have been myriad it number of very, very bad policies. at the thing about america is one, with got some elections coming up, but two, it's our resilience.
7:13 pm
it makes it possible for us to overcome even some of the most bumbling, even some of the most backwards policies. >> raymond: yeah. the malaise overshadowing this economy has really taken hold even of biden's aides, guys. "politico" reports come robbery has been fleeting and many teams are suffering from low morale. many are also currently eyeing the exits, creating the potential for higher than usual turnover at the beginning of the year. it mercedes, it looks like kamala harris' office isn't the only one with a problem here. >> no. i have to tell you, and i read that article and actually some of these staffers were also completing they didn't get invited to holiday parties. it's like "people, the american people are suffering right now, this is not about the white house christmas party, let's be real!" but you know, look -- here's the deal. there is so much dysfunction happening in this white house because you really don't know who is in charge and in essence,
7:14 pm
when you're getting one negative pole after the other, when you have a president that you don't feel is strong enough to lead, when you've had one policy failure after the other, that puts an enormous amount of stress on the staff because what's happening is that they're on defense. they're not on offense. and even president biden admitted this week in the interview with abc that he has failed on the pandemic, that they should have done better. there was no strategy in place and we also saw with afghanistan that the decision-making of that group -- of that team, of that administration, they failed the afghan people, they failed the americans, they failed our military, and on the economy, this is the driving issue for the election next year, and all we keep hearing is inflation, higher food prices, higher gas prices, and for the american people, these pocketbook issues will make the difference. so these white house staffers can be mad and upset, but it's
7:15 pm
because this administration is failing the american people. >> raymond: yeah. horace, i need to shift to congress. here are all the members of congress who have tested positive for covid over the last week alone. what do all of them have in common? they are all fully vaccinated, some are even boosted. horace, what does that microcosm of congress tell us about the effectiveness of the biden vaccine mandates outside of congress? >> welcome congress, you know, has set up some of the most restrictive policies possible as part of their so-called covid mitigation, and it's not working. one of the most serious ones, ones that i think our founders would be very concerned about, is this boat from home. it's already light work as it is to be a member of congress. now you don't even have to show up and matter, you just send
7:16 pm
your message in, you just send your vote in. but there is a reckoning coming and just look, you see the covid numbers exploding, but i'm watching the number of retirees, the resignation announcements that are occurring. they are running like scalded dogs, as we would say here in texas. >> raymond: mercedes, horace, before i go, 15 seconds each, do you have a personal grievance of the year? will start with you, mercedes. >> [laughs] you know, i think for the most part it's been the lack of responsibility, the lack of vision and optimism by the biden administration. they are providing no message of hope, no strategy, no plan, and i think that it has been very destructive and created a huge fatigue amongst the american people. >> raymond: mercedes, you had dancing nurses and a new dog and cat, come on. horace, what's your grievance?
7:17 pm
>> i wish -- i wish that our courts were a lot more sympathetic to the liberty interests of the american people instead of waiting and delaying, they should just boldly announce these actions, these mandates, these interferences of your rights and your freedoms are unconstitutional and get it over with. >> raymond: you have queued me up perfectly! mercedes, horace, merry christmas! biden just teased the possibility of a fourth booster shot for covid, but is it necessary? dr. marty macri lays out the facts and the supreme court, as horace just teed up, will take on biden's vaccine made its in the new year. harmeet dhillon breaks down what it could mean for you. don't go away. ♪ ♪

7:23 pm
fully vaxed. what started as to jobs quickly became three and last night, biden hinted that three might not be enough. >> let me ask you about what we heard from israel overnight. they are already moving forward with a second booster now, so this would be the fourth shot for people 16 or older, and for frontline medical workers. is that something you're considering? >> president biden: i listen to the scientists i'm a and ensure the scientists are paying very close attention to that. there may be a need for another booster, but that remains to be seen. >> so it remains a possibility. >> president biden: it remains a possibility. >> raymond: joining me now is dr. marty macri, the john hopkins school of medicine professor and a fox news medical contributor and author of the book "the price we pay." doctor, the president is just booster addicted at this point. i mean, they are even pushing them on 16 to 17-year-old, is that scientifically necessary? he said he wants to follow the
7:24 pm
signs. >> there's no evidence to support it in the few places in the world that are doing boosters are admittedly saying we are not doing it with science, were just doing it based on a theory that we think you might need it. if pretty soon i think we are going to move to, unfortunately, an annual booster with no scientific basis. look, if the data supports manual booster, i will let you know, but you will hear a language that says are you up-to-date, it could be every six months, every year, and i think we're going to move away from boosters to this conversation of annual, could be every six months, and then just simple the question, are you up-to-date. >> raymond: you wrote a big piece in "the wall street journal," you are very concerned about these boosters, 16-17-year-old, even university students that are facing a mandate. why, very quickly? >> there's no evidence to support boosters in young healthy people. w.h.o. is against boosters in young healthy people, the cdc and fda experts have been against boosters in young people. that's why they voted against
7:25 pm
them, but the fda bypassed them, and so did the cdc, and that's where we got this recommendation from. studies show that if you just have the primary series of boosters it in people under 30, the risk of dying is zero. you cannot lower that risk with a booster, and yet that's the recommendation we have. >> raymond: we are learning from south africa that cases, after spiking, are dropping like a rock. they expect the same to happen here, which begs the question, why are we freaking out, and are you concerned about the adverse reactions people having to these boosters? not only myocarditis, i have a friend here in new orleans, got a booster -- she's a grown man and he's got something that is a reaction in the shoulder from these vaccines. >> look, we know the reactions from the vaccines are as high as one in 7,000 young males. that's heart inflammation that presents to a doctor and probably more cases out there that don't make their way to a doctor. many of us have been concerned about a booster when there's no
7:26 pm
benefit that's documented, and we are in a bit of uncharted territory. it you know, we have 41 million cases of influenza each year roughly. and we don't test them every day and graph it and talk about, you know, a crisis. what we need to do is just take reasonable precautions and take testing selectively. >> raymond: want to talk about this new pill, this anti-covid pill. the fda has approved it, but there are real warnings here, high risk for adults. the fda's decision notes the pill is only modestly effective while also carrying the possible risk of causing reproductive harm. doctor, your reaction? what's happening at the fda? >> well, there has been this concerned because what they do is they give the drug in high dose in mice and that super high dose they look for some forms of
7:27 pm
mutation. even though that's not a dose given in humans or recommended, it does raise some questions. the drug should not be given to children or pregnant women, in my opinion. it can be life-saving so there could be a risk-benefit analysis to do their but we've got paxil bid from pfizer that does not have the concern and cut covid deaths to zero. we just need more of the drug. >> raymond: doctor, thank you for your time, merry christmas, we will talk to in the new year. in just two weeks, the supreme court will hear oral arguments regarding biden's vaccine mandates as well as masks. despite some early setbacks in lower courts, the biden demonstration is confident their mandates will prevail. joining me now, harmeet dhillon, the civil rights attorney and managing partner -- harmeet, the circuit courts were split on the constitutionality of these mandates. you petitioned the supreme court to hear this case. what are they looking for do you
7:28 pm
think? >> well, in fact, that the mandates have actually met with pretty harsh responses from the courts of appeals and right now two of the three biden mandates have been enjoined by the court and the one that i petitioned on behalf of my client, the daily wire, to the sixth circuit, is the only one where a court has actually acted to set aside an injunction of a mandate, so right now that's the one where we are trying to get the supreme court to change the position of the lower court. what we are seeking is simply a ruling that is consistent with all of the statutory basis that covers osha, namely that osha does not have the power -- congress never granted osha the power to mandate to employers to take a particular drug, to classify workers as hazardous substances in the workplace and to impose regulations about -- without any kind of notice and comment and regulations that are frankly illogical. so these are the things that we are petitioning the court for an the court has agreed to hear two
7:29 pm
petitioners in this case. >> raymond: you make the case that these could be constituted as police powers. why is that a problem for biden and his mandate? >> it's a problem for the federal government because the federal government of the united states has very limited police powers. by contrast, states and localities likely to have significant powers to impose mandates. maybe not this kind of mandate, but the federal government simple he doesn't have it in congress never granted it. that's why. >> raymond: given the shifting signs, we were just talking about this with the doctor earlier, the vaccines don't seem to stop either the infection or the spread of omicron. will that have any bearing do you think on the high court's ruling here? >> that is one of the argument that we made in our papers, namely that the evidence currently before us right in front of our eyes is that vaccinated or not, people are spreading this virus and the idea that that's some kind of appropriate barrier as opposed to, by the way, completely
7:30 pm
ignoring natural immunity, which clearly provides significant protection for many people. these are arbitrary, illogical, ineffective, and frankly, i think, unsafe mandates. even if they were permitted by congress, which they aren't. and another point, raymond, is that employers don't want to be in the position of getting into this information with their employees because it actually puts them at legal risk. if you then go on to want to fire an employee who's doing a bad job, sleeping on the job, whatever, you're suddenly going to be accused of disability discrimination if you are firing somebody who chose not to get vaccinated or, you know, didn't have the right number of shots. we don't something want to be in that position as employers. that's another consideration. >> raymond: given the gravity of this and how many people will be affected, 12 million federal and state workers, 100 million employees across the country, why is the court, the high court, only allowing one hour
7:31 pm
for oral arguments? >> they are allowing one hour for the medicare and the federal contractors and then they are allowing two parties to argue and the other one. you raise a very good question. you know, our case was not one of the ones that was selected. i'm hoping that that's a signal that the court has already spent a lot of time thinking about this and they are acting very promptly, but the deadline is looming just five days after the court hearing, it's going to be the deadline for people to implement these policies, and so i suspect right now all of the supreme court law clerks have had their christmas is canceled because they are going to be writing dueling opinions in these cases. so sorry for them. >> raymond: we will keep our eyes on this, check in with you. by the way, i love the new sweater, which apparently you knitted yourself. thank you. merry christmas! now that biden has been forced to sign a bill banning chinese goods tied to slave labor, how

7:38 pm
either. so how do you make sure biden administration rigorously enforces the law and corporations like nike and apple don't exploit the loopholes? for answers we turn to stephen mosher, author of "the bully of asia" and foreign affairs analyst walid phares. thank you for being here. stephen, even the president of the u.s.-china chamber of commerce made if he doesn't know how they will implement this law or enforce it. if are you confident they can? >> no, i i'm not confident the biden administration will enforce any laws passed by the u.s. congress, quite frankly. we've had laws on the books, raymond, banning the impartation of goods made with slave labor since 1932, prison labor. it was passed because of the use of prison labor, slave labor in the soviet union to keep those goods out of the united states. i testified two decades ago before the senate foreign relations committee about goods that were flooding into the u.s. even then. so these laws exist.
7:39 pm
we've got 2 million uighurs in prison in what the chinese -- making goods for export in many cases. they are forced to work seven days a week. all it takes is the political will to enforce the old law on the books and now this new law, but you know, that strength of will, especially when it comes to china, seems to be missing from the white house. you mentioned the biden administration opposed this bill. it was only because people like senator marco rubio that it was passed unanimously in congress. it imposes sanctions on individuals, but you have to actually impose the sanctions. the trump administration did that. >> raymond: the bill only bars imports from that region that you mentioned. intel, they apologized to the chinese government because they have to, you know, and certain supply chains from that region. how do you ensure that they don't wash those goods and those
7:40 pm
items through other parts of china, move them through hong kong and then to the united states? >> you are absolutely right but we have a much larger problem, which is the following. the chinese leadership does not believe the biden administration is going to implement serious sanctions. it's going to go after china. not just because of the uighurs, others, hong kong, many other issues related to chinese quality. because of many reasons, we need to pay attention to, one of which is how this administration has conducted foreign policy near china. the withdrawal from afghanistan was catastrophic, the chinese saw that. what we are doing now with the iran deal. the chinese saw that and also of course because of our domestic situation which we can talk about, so beijing believes that the biden administration, though they signed off on this legislation, are not going to take the posture of fighting china. >> raymond: amazon is now
7:41 pm
bowing to the ccp. reuters is reporting the company was selling a book of president xi's writing and speeches when beijing handed down in edict that amazon must stop allowing any customer ratings and reviews in china. a negative review of the book prompted the demand. one of the people said i think the issue was anything under five stars. this is just a small example of how far corporate america is willing to bend for china. >> oh, yeah. i mean, bend over backwards, kneel down, couto, literally kneeling and beating your head on the floor, all in order for access -- to get access to the china market, which is actually collapsing before our very eyes. consumers in china are very scared now. there are shortages of all kinds. if there's a housing crisis, and so i think the chinese economy is near collapse. we are not in real good shape ourselves, but they are in very,
7:42 pm
very bad shape, and as far as sanctioning members of the chinese communist party. at last year during the trump administration, they sanctioned the party chief, a member of the bureau for the first time a member had ever been sanctioned. the order to illuminate the uighurs, to commit in eastern turkestan came from xi jinping himself, so he is the one who said washington -- should be sanctioned but don't expect the buy demonstration to do that anytime soon. >> raymond: now that hong kong is securely in beijing's hands, china is taking this opportunity to erase history, which sounds familiar, by removing the pillar of shame. that's the city of austin is last public commemoration of the 1989 tenement square massacre. how long before hong kongers don't even remember that this event happened? >> strategically, hong kong has fallen actually to china when it decided to move in, number one,
7:43 pm
and then to crush the democracy movement, and now they are moving to the deeper layer, which is to take over the schooling system, the education and the culture. that's going to be in less than a generation unfortunately if we do not is an international community, led by u.s. and administration, counter these moves. >> raymond: you know, it's outrageous what's happening there and the way they rounded up those democracy advocates, so many good people caught up in those sweeps, we should pray for all of them. many of them rotting in chinese prisons tonight. dental men, thank you both, merry christmas. a satanic display is featured next to a nativity in the illinois state house. you will not believe this. reverend franklin graham is here on what this says about the state of our country and what we should be focused on. don't go away.
