unfortunately, that's all the time we have left for tonight. be sure to check out my website. thanks, as always, for tuning in. i wish you a healthy and happy new year. jason chaffetz is in for laura ingraham and he joins us and just a couple of seconds. jason, are you ready for this? >> jason: yes, thank you! great job as always and merry christmas and happy new year to you. >> gregg: you too as well. >> jason: thanks. all right, i'm jason chaffetz in for laura ingraham and this is a special edition of "the ingraham angle." if you're still wondering why kamala harris pulled so abysmally, she gave us a reminder last night. stephen miller and curative us are here to react. plus, we will find out if they agree with kamala on water biggest failure has been so far this year. plus, biden's plan to force electric cars on all of us has a
7:01 pm
huge upside. for china! author robert bryce explains how the ccp benefits from climate alarmism. and 2021 brought us free britney and turned laura and raymond into tiktok stars. but it also brought us a completely unhinged and discredited media. victor davis hanson explains what kind of world we'd be living in if we believed everything they told us this year. but first. joe biden is now trying a markedly different tactic when it comes to covid. instead of just scaring us to death, he's also urging calm. >> president biden: omicron is a of course a concern but it should not be course of panic. >> jason: apparently sleepy joe missed the last team meeting. he had to stop covid advisors not only aren't on the same page, they're using totally different playbooks. >> for the unvaccinated, you're
7:02 pm
looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families, and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm. >> if someone is in your family isn't vaccinated, should you ask them not to show up? because yes, i would do that. >> jason: the covid fearmongering has got to stop. it's turning americans into paranoid maniacs who prorate each other for even slightly deviating from the new normal. take a look at what happened on a delta flight last week when an elderly man says he took off his mask. >> [bleep]. [indiscernible]. [bleep]. [bleep] >> jason: that's not the first time someone has been lambasted for daring to chew well unmasked
7:03 pm
and it certainly will be the last. and for those of you thinking we can expect fauci and friends to change their behavior in 2022, guess again. just today, fauci was on national television, surprise, surprise, pushing for vaccine passports. >> would you recommend to president biden there should be a requirement for vaccination for domestic travel? >> you're talking about requiring a vaccination to get on a plane domestically, that is just another one of the requirements that i think it's reasonable to consider. >> jason: as laura has said many times on this show, it's time for fauci to go, and i could not agree more. if biden is serious about uniting the country, or at least averting a total wipeout for his party in 2022, he needs to change course in the new year. if that's the cause, then "fire fauci" should be his new year's
7:04 pm
resolution. joining me now it's dr. jay bhattacharya, stanford school of medicine professor. doctor, thank you so much for joining us. i'm telling you, the messaging coming out of this white house, i cannot keep up with how -- one side it's the winter of death, the other side is don't panic, and then you have dr. fauci. i cannot make heads or tails of it, it is an absolute, total mess. >> let's look on the bright side. president biden is saying don't panic. that is the right messaging. there is no cause for panic and actually there hasn't been any cause for panic at all during the epidemic. there's been cause for concern, there's been cause for working carefully, looking at the data and adopting policies that make sense. but panic has not ever productive and i'm glad to hear joe biden call for that. the same time, you have dr. fauci still pushing vaccine passports for flights. you know third of minorities aren't vaccinated. the poor working-class people,
7:05 pm
many people haven't gotten vaccinated because they are already naturally a immune. not unreasonably. going to prevent them from flying? basically he keeps pushing the panic over and over again, pushing policies that have not worked anywhere to stop the disease from spreading because we have no technology for doing that. the division within the administration is striking and i think president biden needs to take control of the messaging and push very hard on this more calming message that he's adopted. >> jason: may just demonstrates to me politically -- i don't believe that joe biden is a true and natural leader. it's not as if i feel like he's grab hold of the reins and he said look, this is what we're going to do and this is why we are going to do it under all going to fall into line. i look at the mask mandate and the ideas of masks in young kids, and the messaging that goes on there. from your medical, professional opinion, where should we be with masks?
7:06 pm
>> well, i mean we have a mandate to mask 2-year-olds. we are unique in the world. europe, explicitly against masking children 2-5. there's no randomized evidence that masking children has any effect whatsoever on the spread of the disease. it's almost two years into the pandemic and the cdc has not going around to running a randomized trial on this incredibly divisive -- divisive policy. and you know, you saw that really unfortunate video that we just watched together. you know, it's created this social division, and it's created a sense of -- and some people, essentially that they can enforce -- enforce virtue on others. it makes no sense -- especially on airplanes where there really isn't very much disease spread it all because of the ventilation. i think it's time to back off from these low evidence, low-quality evidence divisive policies that have not accomplished much in terms of stopping the disease from spreading and yet is causing incredible social division.
7:07 pm
>> jason: and i only have a short amount of time, but the difference, or the change in direction now on quarantines. tell us about that and is this the right direction, do you believe, from the federal government? >> it is the right direction. a lot of the quarantine happening is essentially lockdown by self, especially in schools. if you have a kid next to a kid who's positive and then automatically quarantine for a long time, it makes no sense. shortening quarantine periods is a step in the right direction. >> jason: doctor, thank you for your expertise, we do appreciate it. >> president biden: the secretary of health and education that i nominated, i fear. >> jason: biden couldn't remember who the health and services -- health and human services secretary is and most of you probably can't either because you never see him. that's because it secretary becerra, and he's been totally
7:08 pm
absent. he has yet to attend a single white house covid briefing. think about it. he's health and human services secretary, he hasn't attended one white house briefing on this, he hasn't held a press conference on the matter and it took him more than seven months to visit the national institutes of health during a pandemic! if so is secretary becerra? he's like a covid man of mystery. joining me now it's quarter congresswoman, cat? thank you, congressman, for joining us. from florida. congresswoman, where is this guy? he's the secretary of health and human services during a pandemic and i never see him! >> jason, first, thanks for having me, good to see you, and to your point, i don't know. this has definitely turned into a game of where's waldo. no one seems to be able to find him. on really any of the issues that he has full jurisdiction over. it could be covid, which of course, as you just said, he has
7:09 pm
not even been to one of the major press conferences at the white house, which you would think that the secretary of health and human services would be a part of. when it came to the border issue, which hhs has a major role to play in the border because border patrol turns over all of the unaccompanied children over to hhs. a whole other story. he hasn't been down there. nor has he been out front and center dealing with the opioid epidemic. if so on the major issues, the major crises that we have been facing as americans, the health and human -- the hhs secretary has been m.i.a. and when asked about this, i believe in a radio interview that a reporter was able to actually track him down, they asked, well, why aren't you at any of these major briefings and why are you more front and center talking about this issue the same way that secretary azar was, he said it's "not the
7:10 pm
profile that counts, it's the results." the results? we can talk about the results here. there up and more people that have died under the biden demonstration from covid than under the trump administration. we have mixed messaging across the board. one minute the president is saying that you're going to have a winter of death and destruction and fear and the mongering is all over the map, and then he says don't panic. and yet we haven't hhs secretary who has nothing to say and is nowhere to be found. it's very, very disturbing and quite frankly, some people think he may be on his way out. >> jason: well, look, you're in the house, not in the senate, so you didn't go through the confirmation process, but he barely squeaked by because he has no health and human services background, he's an attorney by trade. he was the california attorney general. he has no background in this, so now all of a sudden, president biden is saying what's, i forgot to order the
7:11 pm
masks. somebody's got to turn to somebody and say whose job and role and responsibility. you would think the health and human services secretary would be somewhere in the room. but who do we -- who are we supposed to turn to? >> and you look at an agency like hhs and the vast portfolio that they oversee, everything from cms, medicare, medicaid, we saw under this democratic house massive cuts to medicare and medicaid to pay for their social justice warrior programs. and then you get still no word out of the secretary on this, and again, with the border, no words to be said even though there was outrage about the unaccompanied children and their treatment, or lack thereof, under this administration, and again, that's an hhs responsibility. now they're talking about biden's signature at home testing program. no contracts have been signed.
7:12 pm
there's not really been any details laid out, you would think that the secretary would be in charge of that. but something that i found interesting, jason was just a few weeks ago he was asked how are we going to plan for this and he said well, you know, we really ought to ask congress for more money because we need to make sure that this is an issue that stays front and center for this administration, and we don't want to ask after the fact. are you kidding me? the biden administration is hell-bent on pushing through this nearly $5 trillion bbb, build back broke plan that is nothing but green new deal and social justice warrior nonsense. and we have the secretary who finally pops his head up and says we might need some money for covid when in reality there is still a lot that has yet to be spent from all of these covid packages, and so you can start to see how this is going to end up happening come the first of the year. they're going to be asking congress for more money to run
7:13 pm
another program. >> jason: yes, and blood, you're in the house, it's primarily the role of the senate -- they are the ones that confirm jim, how in the world is this doing this? thank you and have a wonderful new year's, thanks for joining us on "the ingraham angle." >> happy new year's to you. >> jason: omicron cases arising in most states regardless of what restrictions they have in place so it's a little confusing when the "miami herald" decided to run an op-ed blaming governor ron desantis for the current outbreak, calling this -- writes "last lesson of 2021, florida. omicron happens when we act selfishly like governor desantis." here's a lesson for her. right now, per capita caseloads are higher in washington, d.c., new york, new jersey, and rhode island. and new yorkers hospitalization rate is nearly three times higher than florida, and i think
7:14 pm
of our population is actually bigger than new york, so tell me again how the vaccine mandates are working. joining me now is another florida congressman, michael waltz. congressman, thanks so much for joining us. when you saw this, this "miami herald" piece, give me your perspective on it. >> you know, jason, let me tell you, the elderly, the most affected and vulnerable of florida didn't think that governor desantis was selfish when -- thank god for operation warp speed and president trump and the record of vaccines that we received. when he applied it to them first, despite the cdc instructing the state to do it separately, they didn't think he was selfish. our first responders don't think he is selfish or any of the leadership of this state when they are refusing to fire people if they have concerns about the mandate. they don't think he is selfish.
7:15 pm
the kids in florida that have been in school since august of 2025 days a week in person, don't think he is selfish and let me tell you, having one of the lowest unemployment rates and a growth rate last month that was six times the economic growth rate of the nation, people whose small businesses are booming in their back to work, trying to balance and live with this pandemic while also getting on with their lives, they don't think he is selfish either. and jason, let me just say very quickly. you know, instead of pointing fingers at each other trying to find fault here in the united states on partisan lines, let's not forget where this came from and who's covered it up, and that's the chinese communist party and i haven't heard squat about that from the "miami herald." >> jason: no, nor have i heard from the democrats. they controlled house and the senate and there is not one investigation into the origins of covid.
7:16 pm
very quickly, and going to play this little sound from president biden, but every once in a while he stumbles onto something and says something that i agree with. listen to what he says about the states and their role solving this problem. >> president biden: there is no federal solution. this gets solved state level. we are prepared and we know what it takes to save lives, protect people, and keep schools and businesses open. we just have to stay focused and continue to work together. >> jason: the problem, congressman, is he says that, but they act totally differently, don't they? >> yeah, they do is they try to put in one-size-fits-all mandates and solutions, and it's so frustrating, we are seeing games getting canceled now, players not able to play, people aren't able to perform because the cdc and his agencies aren't keeping up with the variant, they aren't adjusting their guidelines. finally they did today but it's
7:17 pm
way too slow, but you know, biden is catching onto what americans have caught on to a year ago, they are voting with their feet, they're moving to florida, tennessee, texas, a thousand a day coming into florida for their individual freedom, for their liberty, because we believe that they can choose best for what's good for their families and their livelihood, not washington, d.c. and that underscores everything. that's why california, new york, illinois, massachusetts, or losing people left and right. >> jason: congressman, thank you, and thank you for your service and have a wonderful and a great new year. this may shock you, but the criminals have stolen nearly $100 billion in pandemic relief funds. that's your money, it's our money. out of that $100 billion stolen, the government has only been able to recover about $2 billion. would you trust them to responsibly spend more of your money? of course not.
7:18 pm
but that's what biden and the democrats want. despite their recent setbacks, they're still trying to pass their build back better agenda. joining me now is kentucky congressman james comer, ranking member of the committee on pretty familiar with, house oversight and reform committee. congressman, thank you so much for joining us. you know, it's pretty nervy for the democrats to ask for a trillion plus more dollars when they wasted, squandered, and allowed more than $100 billion to be stolen according to the united states secret service. >> yeah, and that's a conservative figure. that's not counting the people that got loans and didn't need them. this is $100 billion to fraudulent, fake companies, and get the democrats on the house oversight committee haven't tried to have one investigation. they haven't tried to probe it. we've requested hearings on it. we've requested a briefing from a biden department of justice to tell us where they are in terms of their investigation so we can
7:19 pm
know where we can point our investigation, but right now, they won't communicate with us. the democrats don't want to provide any type of oversight if they think that it's going to make joe biden look bad. >> jason: that's right. hear no evil, see no evil. you can do that by asking no questions. according to one news report that was courting the secret service, there is something like 900 active investigations, but you've had a warning from different agencies now, we are talking about massive money, very few states even spend $100 billion in a year, and this is what they know it's going to the criminal, and they continue to spend it and put these programs into place. they're not done giving these criminals even more money. >> no they're not and you consider the fraudulent companies that receive ppp loans, democrats don't want to do anything about that. then you take into consideration the unemployment in insurance fraud and we are just starting
7:20 pm
to break the surface on how much of that money was wasted. we read reports were criminals on death row in california received on employment insurance benefits for many, many months, and we fear that foreign nationals have received as much as 40% of the unemployment insurance, but the democrats want to continue to spend more money. escott carmack said earlier on your show, they still have billions and tens of billions of dollars of unspent money from the previous stimulus fund, but they still are pressuring their democrat in joe manchin to pass this build back better bill to spend trillions more. i can imagine if all this money hits the economy at the same time, what it's going to do to inflation. the fact that they won't do anything about the waste, fraud, and abuse, it's very troubling and every american should be frustrated that the democrat majority will not try to provide any type of oversight whatsoever for people that are scamming the
7:21 pm
government. >> jason: yeah, congressman. i'm glad you're there and i'm glad you're on top of it, because i think you're asking all the right questions and i hope the oversight committee actually does what it's supposed to do and provide that kind of oversight. when this it administration is barking for $85 billion for more irs agents to do more audits, all they need to do is look over their shoulder and watch $100 billion flow out to the criminal element. it really is sad. congressman, thanks for joining us, have a wonderful new year. kamala harris once again proved why her approval rating is abysmally low. stephen miller and keira davis help us break down the low lights of kamala's latest interview. stay right there.

done that yet though. judging by her poll numbers, i say americans want to see a lot less of kamala harris, not more. hearing her say all that kind of made me cringe. i mean, that cackle is still there. have no fear, there are more moments like that from her interview, and here to help us break them down, stephen miller, former senior advisor for policy under president trump, and keira davis, writer and editor at large for red state. thank you both for joining us. stephen, i want to start with you because, i mean, her biggest failure is not traveling more? are you buying that? >> well, i will say this. she should have visited the border that she was in charge of months and months ago and i don't mean the show trip that she did where she never actually made it down to the front lines. she needs to go out there in the field where the agents are patrolling, meet with them, hear their concerns about the border catastrophe that she and joe biden are responsible for.
7:28 pm
she is the borders are. that would be like being the safety inspector before the hindenburg. i don't think it will be possible to do a worse job than if you were trying to sabotage the country, which on this issue they are trying to do. >> jason: i want to play this little sound and i want you to react to it. this is kamala harris talking about national security. >> what do you see is the biggest national security challenge confronting the u.s.? what is the thing that will keep you up at night? >> frankly, one of them is our democracy. in addition, it is honestly about what we need to do on the climate crisis. >> jason: are you buying that? >> i mean, maybe in her world book crisis is the most pressing thing but when i talked to my friends and family and neighbors, the pressing thing for them is the price of gas, how are they getting back and forth to work, are their kids going back to school in the winter? i mean, i found out that my son's colleges going back
7:29 pm
online. there is so much uncertainty out there and i really think -- and i don't even think that there has been plenty of polls to tell us that the climate is last on our minds, and away -- kamala is -- she's either clueless, or she just is so angry about how this administration has done her dirty, and believe me, biden and his crew have done her real dirty. she's just so mad about it, she's just out there saying whatever because it doesn't matter at this point. her numbers are in a tank, they are definitely not going up, and the biden it isn't doing anything to give her any kind of mechanism to crawl out of this hole that she's in. it just seems like everything that hand her is tailor-made to be a disaster. >> jason: stephen, she get these really hardball questions, listen to this clip we have in the interview and a hard question she got about failure and how tough it is and has it been fair to you.
7:30 pm
>> do you think any of this is fair? do you think you're being set up to fail? >> no i don't believe i'm being set up to fail, but -- but more important. on vice president of the united states. anything that i handle is because it's a tough issue. and it couldn't be handled at some other level. >> jason: stephen, your take on that? >> it's amazing how she continues to fumble the easiest, softball questions you could possibly imagine. as you remember, her staff has so little confidence in her, they hire professional child actors to have a conversation with her about stargazing. you have to truly be the most helpless, clueless politician in the world if you cannot talk to a 6-year-old kid about looking up at the night sky unless that kid has gone through
7:31 pm
professional acting training classes, so again, it is a simple question that required a simple answer, which is that i'm here to serve the american people. i don't think about me, i don't think about myself, i think about the country, next question and she is rationalizing. i will also say this. there's no way -- there's no way that this white house is going to bring her any hard problems after, again, she literally set the southern border of the united states on fire. >> jason: look, this is a vice president that has zero accomplishments. the only thing that she's been dealing with as a hardball is keeping her staff away from having to be, you know -- going to psychologists to get some therapy done. she can't seem to manage a small office and policywise, she was given a big portfolio and she's done nothing with it. i can't name a single thing that she has actually accomplished despite that big portfolio and that big airplane to go wherever she wants to go. we want to have keira join us but we are having some technical
7:32 pm
difficulties with her line but stephen, people tend to forget what she was asked on cnn, were you the last person in the room before the decision in the execution of the afghanistan withdrawal happened and she said yes, i was the last person, so how does she say it's not fair, i haven't been given big response abilities when the one thing that she was in the room for went as bad as could possibly go? >> well, i bet she of regrets leaping in front of the cameras to take credit for the afghanistan strategy. that is not something that you will probably be putting on your resume, i was a u.s. senator, it was a vice president, oh, and i came up along with joe biden with the whole afghanistan withdrawal plan. that's probably a line you're leaving off the resume. the reality is that she's in a situation where she could never, ever, ever be elected president. she knows it, everyone around her nose it, everyone in the white house knows it, that's the fundamental crisis for the whole democratic party. when you are owning the afghanistan debacle, when you're owning the border debacle and
7:33 pm
when your link at the hip with an administration that's response will for the inflation crisis, the energy crisis, the crime crisis, the supply chain crisis, you cannot be elected. so her political career has reached its descendants, and it's all downhill from here. unfortunately, right now, the pain is being felt by the american people. >> jason: stephen and keira, we lost the connection with her, but thank you so much for joining us here tonight. we really do appreciate it, have a wonderful new year. the biden administration's bid to force electric cars on american scum it's good for two things, cronyism and empowering china. author robert rice explains why in moments. you're going to want to hear this. stay there with us. ♪ ♪

>> electric vehicles are important to the president. >> president biden: the real question is whether we will lead or fall behind in the race of the future. >> the future of transportation in our nation and around the world is electric. >> i have a chevy volt, that is my car! so i drive on sunshine, girl. >> jason: what the biden administration isn't telling about their mad rush to electric cars is what it would mean for our energy and national security. as author robert bryce recently wrote in "the wall street journal," "by forcing electric vehicles into the market, the u.s. will trade reliance on domestically produced gasoline and diesel fuel for reliance on chinese minerals, what a lousy trade." robert bryce is not only right, but he joins me right now. he's the host of the power-hungry podcast and he's author of "a question of power."
7:40 pm
robert, thank you so much for joining me on the angle. give us the thesis here because there is a major push to electric cars. i own an electric car, but most people don't understand how electricity is created. >> [laughs] well, that's a good point and it is certainly true, jason. but the key issue here is, jason, look, i'm 61 and for nearly all of my life, test for member the 1973 oil embargo was a sea change in terms of energy policy in america. ever since 1973, policy makers on both sides of the aisle in washington have been saying we can't rely on imported strategic commodities, we need to produce more oil here and not rely on imported strategic commodities such as oil and other democrats, and i'm not a republican, i'm not a democrat. i'm disgusted that the democrats want to show all of this effort into electrifying transportation, electrifying everything. that will make the u.s. almost wholly dependent on china for
7:41 pm
sources of neodymium, disposing, turvey m, the key elements that are needed in electric vehicles. it's just a lousy trade. it's bad trade policy, it's bad for energy security and it's bad for consumer affordability. >> jason: that's the thing, the biden administration has not laid out their strategy in the long-term way that we can be energy independent, energy self-sufficient and do electric. because coal is still a dominant form of power. they don't like the nuclear plan, and if they're going to go to the rare earth mineral, right now in order to get them refined, we send them to china, don't we? >> that's exactly right. china is, according to the international energy agency and their report in may, try to control something like 85% of the global rare earth elements market and if there's one rule or one lesson, jason, from the covid-19 pandemic, it's that supply chains matter, and they matter a lot.
7:42 pm
and at a time when the u.s. has seen huge increases in oil and gas production domestically, we are trading this for almost complete reliance on china. but me read you just one quick thing here, because i wrote about this issue 11 years ago in my fourth book, "power-hungry," decades ago, he said the middle east has oil, china has rare earths, we must take full advantage of this resource. that's exactly what china is doing. and america's needs for rare earth both for defense and for transportation are not going to be china's highest priority. >> jason: why don't we take our own rare earth minerals and why don't we do the refining there. the greenies that are standing in the way, isn't it? >> i don't know, jason, i'm not counting on the sierra club to speak up for more mining in america but when that happens -- but you hundred dollars it's not going to happen but let's set the easy issue aside for just a
7:43 pm
moment because the rare earth elements aren't only critical to electric vehicles and transportation or defense, right? are high tech defense systems have -- f-35's are heavily dependent on rare earth elements and just last year remember the chinese government threatened to cut off the flow of rare earths to american defense contractors, but it's also key for the wind industry, which continues to bill itself is clean power, clean energy, et cetera. again, according to the iea, some of these big new -- the biggest of the new offshore wind turbines could require as much as we times rare earth elements each. so the entire idea about a transition to something else hinges on this -- these claims that there will be plenty of these critical minerals available and it's just not true and china has a stranglehold on nearly all of these critical minerals which are known as malan tonight, disposing m, neodymium, et cetera.

we once knew it. it's fused with the left-wing movement in the democratic party. that's why trump had not been in office more than 90 days and the liberal center at harvard said that 93% of the coverage was biased against him, and we had prominent marquee journalist christiane amanpour, rittenhouse, ramos, they said they couldn't be disinterested because of the trump phenomenon, and so if you'd believed the media, we heard andrew cuomo was a professional and gifted governor. chris cuomo is a professional journalist. there was no relation between the wuhan level for lab and the origins of covid. the chinese were very sober and judicious the way they handled the outbreak. we were told that somehow in waukesha there was some autopilot suv that killed six people and injured 62 but we didn't really know much about the driver. we were told the rittenhouse trial where there was white on
7:52 pm
white violence was simply about race. and i could go on. so they don't -- they don't feel that they have to be and they should not be disinterested. the other think they do is they are a megaphone for democratic talking points about every three or four weeks. they flood the airways and the print media with a theme and remember when joe biden went below 40%, suddenly democracy was in danger in 2022. 2024 we can lose the country and they had just told us it was very resilient in the electing joe biden and then we were told that we might face a coup and military officers were writing in "the washington post," for example there was a danger of a coup in 2024. very ironic, because there were people on the left that had almost advocated a coup if it was necessary to get rid of donald trump. and then with joe manchin suddenly a renegade in the senate and now we are flooded the last week with the ideal, well, the senate doesn't practice equity. it's an archaic institution,

it's not fair that california doesn't get the same numerical representation as wyoming even though it's essential to the constitution. so you know, i was thinking about this right now and the one person -- the one thing that ben rhodes, the former deputy national security advisor to barack obama said that was true, about only one thing. he said that these people are 20 and 30 something but know nothing and we create an echo chamber and we feed them stuff and they reverberate at and magnify it back and i think that's what the media is. it's not fair to call them the media. they are an extension of this progressive movement. >> jason: i've got 30 seconds, but if i said to you what did joe biden actually do and accomplish in 2021, can you really honestly name anything? >> well, i think he did one thing, he terrified the left because they had told us he

could campaign from the basement, it was only because of covid, he was completely in control of his faculties and now they look at the polling and appalling with kamala harris that you covered, and i think they are terrified and they are starting for the first time to create a scenario or a landscape that suggests that he is challenged because they are afraid that he's going to take them down to historic defeat. >> jason: wow, yeah. victor, you're one of the smartest guys we get to talk to. i thank you for joining us on "the ingraham angle," i really do appreciate it, have a wonderful new year. watch out, cnn wants you to brace yourself, but for what? the last bite explains it.

>> jason: when biden today said omicron is no reason to panic, cnn, well, they didn't quite get the memo. >> if you have new year's plans, you might want to rethink them and simply stay home and brace yourself, health officials are saying this omicron winter surge
