tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  January 3, 2022 5:00pm-6:00pm PST

5:00 pm
going to -- just to have drinks, not for the potatoes. thank you so much for watching fox news prime time, i'm lawrence jones. i'll be back here tomorrow and the rest of this week. anyway, tucker carlson is sitting by next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." happy new year, with got some good news for you. 2022 is going to be an improvement over the last two years. we can say that with confidence. how do we know? it's simple. the covid lunacy is finally going to end and not, by the way, because of anything that's happening in the world's medicine. the pandemic itself may burn out to this weekend new variant, we may also find highly effective medicines to treat it, in fact we arty have, but as a practical
5:01 pm
matter, scientific development's are usually irrelevant to covid policy. they always have been, so the reason things are going to improve has nothing to do with medicine, if that the current rules and superstitions are just too stupid and crazy to continue. at some point, probably soon, even the democratic party of us to be its own voters are going to stop putting up with it, you can bet on that. to begin we will again with two images, the first is the president of the united states, joe biden. biden is the safest man in the world. hundreds of federal employees spend their entire lives making certain that no harm comes to joe biden. when you president, your personal doctor is never more than a few steps away. an ambulance follows you the minute you leave the house. you can have any treatment you want at any time you want, as many vaccines as you care to take. nobody in history has received more attentive medical care than joe biden is getting right now. he's the last person on earth who should be worried about covid-19, and yet he's terrified. here's biden on the beach last
5:02 pm
week. he's outside, it's a breezy day, there's no one around but his own triple-vaxed wife, the woman he claims to share a bed with. you would think joe biden considers this a safe environment, but no, there he is wearing his little surgical mask as he walks through the sand. what, you got to ask yourself, does joe biden imagine is going to hurt him and how is the little mask supposed to help you make is he worried about wave borne viruses? clouds of pathogens floating over the atlantic from the azores? infected seagulls? we don't know, it's impossible to know the answers because it is also completely bonkers. these are not rational fears. these are monsters under the bed night terrors. if this is textbook hysteria, it's a kind of mental illness. that's a president. here's the secretary of defense, his name is lloyd austin, you can see him on your screen, he's emerging on his plane. lloyd austin's morford of the coronavirus even than joe biden's. biden was a surgical mask, lloyd austin wears a welding helmet with a surgical mask underneath
5:03 pm
and underneath that there's as much mrna vaccine in his bloodstream as the law will allow. lloyd austin is ready to wage a protracted siege against covid. think of the romans, -- and yet somehow in some way a change must have appeared in his formidable armor. yesterday lloyd austin announced that despite his many vaccinations, he has contracted covid and it's serious enough you won't be going to work for a while. so what's the lesson that lloyd austin is taken from ischemic if the vaccines work perfectly and because they work so well, they will remain mandatory in the armed services, we can fire more seals. austin wrote that in the same statement in which he announced that the vaccine that he took didn't work. "the vaccines work and will remain a military medical requirement for a workforce." right, because that's not completely irrational or anything. but it is completely irrational,
5:04 pm
and every clear thinking person knows that it is. but wait, you say, i've been watching television news, so i know that the vaccine was never designed to stop infection or transmission or even hospitalization and death, none of which is a factual matter, it does stop. no, the point of the vaccines was always to make your symptoms a little better. that's a reassuring metric that's usually difficult to measure, though strangely no one seems reassured by it. but from day one that was the advertised benefit of these vaccines. that's what many people appear to believe. but it's not true, and since so many people seem to have forgotten what the authorities were saying just a few months ago, we have saved those tapes. here they are. >> nationwide, just 37% of americans are fully vaccinated, even as health experts continue to tout the benefits. >> you become a dead end to the virus and when there are a lot of dead ends around, the virus is not going to go anywhere. >> our data from the cdc today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don't
5:05 pm
get sick. >> president biden: we are not in a position where we think that any virus, including the delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of unvaccinated people, the various shots the people are getting now cover that. you're okay, you're not going to -- you're not going to get covid if you have these vaccinations. >> tucker: "you're not going to get covid if you have these vaccinations." that was joe biden this july. poor old guy. his preference for simple, childlike sentence is this so his undoing. as in this case, there is no mistaking what he actually meant. take the shot and you won't get covid. well, that turned out to be untrue, to put it mildly. how many vaccinated people do you know right now who have covid or have just recovered from covid? it seems like millions of people who dutifully got the vaccination also got corona over this past christmas vacation.
5:06 pm
you probably know a lot, you may be one of them. it's a possible there's a connection between these two facts. researchers suggest vaccinated are more likely to get and transmit the virus than a unvaccinated. whatever the final verdict, we don't know, what is clear is that people who have had the shot can easily get infected and easily give it to others. the epicenter of the latest outbreak with the most vaccinated city in the country, new york. so at this point there is no remaining doubt the experts were completely wrong about what the vaccines could do, and to be honest, that's okay. we are not attacking them, it is not a crime to be wrong. we've been wrong. there are a lot of wrong guesses in science as there are in life. science is not a volume of established knowledge, it's a way of thinking, it's a process of seeking the truth and very often in scientific research you discover that your assumptions were totally off so you just adjust from there. viagra started out as a heart medication. there's nothing immoral about any of that, you just have to admit that you were wrong. that's the requirement. you cannot lie. lying is the enemy of science.
5:07 pm
if you are still pretending that the covid vaccines work as advertised, you are a liar. there's no way around it. you have no place in public health or even hosting a show on cnn, you're doing too much damage to the country. no one will ever believe you or anyone like you ever again. so that's the first thing we've got to do if we got to go from this disaster to a better future, we've got to insist that the people in charge stop lying about covid. they have been lying since the first day, lying about everything, including the most basic public health stats that we used to rely on. remember when they told you the blm protests were exempt from quarantine regulation? supporting the policy goals of the democratic party was virtuous, therefore thousands of people, antifa members with blm signs, could not possibly is in epidemiology matter be dangerous. they really said that and people in the public actually put up with that. and that's when you know for certain that our politicians
5:08 pm
were totally corrupt and that our citizenry was far too compliant. here's bill de blasio, the former mayor of new york. >> street fairs. it means, you know, big, outdoor concerts and it means things like parades. you know, things that here in the city could mean not just thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people. it's just not time for that. >> what about protests that people want to march on fifth avenue, are they going be allowed to do so? >> this is always an area of real sensitivity. if you just talk about health, we would always say hey, folks, you know, stay home if you can, but we understand in this moment in history people are talking about the need for historic changes. this is a historic moment of change. we have to respect that. >> tucker: it's a historic moment of change. that's the guy in charge of health policy in our biggest city. actually he's gone now but for some reason his hastily issued covid proclamations remain enforced in new york city. it why? because everyone's afraid to ignore them despite the fact
5:09 pm
they make no sense. so who's fault is that? honestly it's our fault. if we want better politicians, we have to be better citizens. what does that mean? it means following common sense and the tug of our own consciences before we admit to absurd and transparent with political taft, it means telling the truth about leaders who live. we have no reason to be ashamed when we do that. they do. unfortunately tony fauci is not ashamed come he never will be. he's 81, he's been lying a long time. he's also often -- someone if -- ought to ask them how many biological -- in any case, here's fauci the liar admitting that he lied. this is from last wednesday. he lied about how many kids have been hospitalized from covid. watch. >> if you look at the children who are hospitalized, many of them are hospitalized with covid as opposed to because of covert. and what we mean by that, if a
5:10 pm
child goes in the hospital, they automatically get tested for covid, and they get counted as a covid hospitalized individual when in fact they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. so it's over counting the number of children who are "hospitalized with covid" as opposed to because of covid. >> tucker: so it turns out it wasn't covid after all. the kids didn't really have covid. in a bad way, covid isn't really a threat to kids. it looks like the conspiracy theorists who are now banned from twitter were right all along. the official numbers were fake. those kids were in the hospital for broken bones and appendicitis, not covid. tony fauci, for his own political reasons, has finally admitted this, but it's too late. he spent two years crushing the weakest among us and they are indeed crushed. imagine wearing a mask to
5:11 pm
second grade. imagine never seeing your teacher 'a space or watching your friends laugh. imagine being older, imagine spending junior year of high school alone in your room with only the internet for company. what would happen to you? you be badly damaged. kids in america have been badly damaged. the numbers show it clearly. this is a crime. no one has been prosecuted for that crime, no one ever likely will be. but once again we have saved the tape if only so the reality of what frauds like tony fauci have done to young people will not be forgotten. here was the scene, for example at a public high school in washington state this spring. ♪ ♪ >> high school finding a socially distanced solution to get the band back together. these so-called pods set up in the band and choir rooms, individual students getting inside, dipping themselves in, and then removing their masks to play their instruments or to sing. >> tucker: band practice inside plastic pods.
5:12 pm
it's grotesque. it's amusing and away, we we will watch that video ten years from now inflect our disbelief, where they really that nuts in 2021? yes, they were. but really it's not a joke. treating healthy children like they are untouchables is mina hell, it's a very destructive thing to do. they weren't hurting anyone, they couldn't hurt anyone yet are health authorities hurt them, mostly civil tony fauci could feel safe, their childhoods were destroyed. was it worth it? no it was not worth it. healthy societies work to make sure the youngest generations thrive. nothing is more important than that. while we are at, one more thing. the last two years have unleashed an awful lot of cruelty in our society. you see it everywhere. former advisor to george w. bush
5:13 pm
posed that hospitals should withhold life-saving medical treatments from anyone who won't get the shot. it's grotesque. but no one in authority denounced his idea. many doctors applauded it. it's hard to imagine something like that happening even two years ago. it's too cruel. americans didn't used to talk about each other like this. now it's very common. what does it tell you? it tells you that americans are dangerously angry. we need to fix that. if the people in charge of done the opposite, they've done nothing to calm the population. they stoke the rage and they've leveraged it why? because they benefit when the american population is divided against itself. joe biden actually went on television a few weeks ago to explain that unvaccinated americans have no right to use american hospitals. so much for health care is a human right. that was the democratic party's old talking point. now it's obey or die. where does this go? you know where it goes, the next step, of course, is internal passports, fully digitized so there's no escape to.
5:14 pm
you will do with the democratic party commands or you will stay in your home. you will no longer have a right to travel freely within your own country. that's not a conspiracy theory, people are saying it out loud, it's coming. momentum is building for it right now. there's no pushback. republican leaders in washington have done nothing to stop this. there focused on their own hobby, another round of nation-building, a brand-new war in eastern ukraine. they are contemptible. but where does that leave the rest of us? well, it's up to the public to apply the brakes to what is certainly the most threatening idea ever proposed in the united states. american citizens are the only hope. the good news is we think there probably equal to it. glenn greenwald has been covering authoritarianism in american politics for many years without that made him the perfect person to assess covid policy in the first days of the new year. inks so much for coming on. do you think these superstitions can continue? >> it's really remarkable how so long into the universal availability of covid vaccines,
5:15 pm
which we were constantly told we were supposed to celebrate and even venerate, but it was the way out of the pandemic. everybody can get vaccines if they want. there's increasing calls for even greater oppression on our lives, greater calls for vesting the state with more power. why would that be? i think fear is an extremely powerful human motivator and demagogues in government know how to stimulate it for their own power, but i also think that with social media, the more people are constantly feeding on stories about how they should be frightened, the more this fear is intensifying and i think there's almost an addiction, tucker, to being protected by the state, to not having to return to normal life. there's a desire for the pandemic to continue even though the acute dangers have long since passed as a result of numerous factors, including a less threatening variant and the availability of natural immunity and vaccines, and it's really disturbing to see how their
5:16 pm
oppression is increasing even as the threat decreases. >> tucker: there is a hint every day in the news of the increasing militarization of our response to this covid pandemic. so you just saw the governor of connecticut call up the national guard to distribute covid supplies, the mayor of washington just got full control of the national guard of washington. congressman from texas was calling for fema to get involved at all of this stuff. i mean, should that make us nervous? is it paranoid to think wait a second, what the hell is going on? how do you read those developments? >> i really encourage people to go use google and go back to the debate right after the 9/11 attack when all of these radical proposals were introduced to increase power in the hands of the government like the patriot act, and the argument at the time was don't worry, these are temporary measures, they are only going to be in place for as long as is necessary to get this crisis, this emergency, under control.
5:17 pm
20 years later, the patriot act is very much in place. every four years it's renewed without any opposition, since and application have wildly expanded beyond its original intention, it's most never used for terrorism, if used for a whole variety of means for the government to spy on its citizenry. when you start building these bureaucratic apparatuses that vest power in the hands of the state to control the lives of citizens in the name of some temporary crisis, it never is temporary, it never goes away, there's never a political motive to dismantle it. it will just continue and even if there's a cure tomorrow for covid, they will just transform it into the office of infectious diseases or the administer >> tucker: cause for paranoia. glenn greenwald, thank you for being a rational voice. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: the last couple years you've seen massive waves of people from new york city

♪ ♪ >> tucker: the mayor of new york -- the city of new york has a new mayor, his name is eric adams, former subway cop, seems like he would be a big improvement over bill de blasio. unfortunately, he has continued bill de blasio's state of emergency based on covid. he's also continued the vaccine mandate for inter-venues, which is insane. it so a lot of new yorkers are continuing to flee to florida, and that would include new york congressperson sandy cortez, who the national media are calling aoc, as if it's their job to make her -- her name is not aoc, it's sandy. that's what they called her. anyway, sandy went to florida on vacation with her boyfriend, she didn't wear a mask, she got caught on video not wearing a mask and got attacked. her defense? i'm a very sexy lady.

ron desantis is, to see this critique it off her back well, you know what, you just want to sleep with me. what are you talking about? i imagine of any male did this, elected official, imagine if rand paul gets a critique or any other person, joe biden, they said how can you say this but climate change in his response was well, you just want to sleep with me. it is so bratty and so immature and it's so disgusting to even think about. and let me just say in case there's any confusions. i have a lot of critique of alexandria because you're cortez, i've had a lot of critiques since the very beginning. no, sandy, i do not want to sleep with you. >> tucker: i think that's fair. it does suggest and are mostly self-esteem, bordering on narcissism. i mean, if someone criticized you and your first thought is they just want to have sex with me, maybe they just don't like you, that's what i assume when people criticize me, i never think oh, you're very attracted to me. how crazy. >> you're trending every other week. >> tucker: it's because i'm so sexy.
5:26 pm

5:33 pm
hundreds of marines have already began. so the marines and air force say they have granted zero religious exemptions for the vaccines because religious freedom no longer exists under joe biden. service members are fighting back. just hours ago, a judge granted an injunction to a group of navy seals who seek religious exemption. good men in the country needs them of the judge seems to agree with them. he wrote the navy acquires -- by all accounts it is feeder. of course it is. doug mcgregor joins us to assess the effects of all of this on the military and our military readiness. thanks so much for coming on. so where are we with troop strength? i think most people, including me, don't have a precise sense of it. >> no, and the numbers are hard to extract. the pentagon doesn't make it easy. and frankly, we've learned to be very skeptical about the numbers that are provided by the apartment of defense. they have been less than truthful about the numbers of
5:34 pm
soldiers, sailors, airmen, or marines that are deployed in places like syria, afghanistan, iraq. so we have to approach it cautiously, but we have some large numbers that we can .2. the first thing to understand is the reason that i became so concerned about eliminating sailors, marines, and eventually soldiers, airmen, who are otherwise healthy, capable, well-trained, proficient, competent, in their profession, is simply because we don't have that many people in the united states from which to recruit right now. only about 30% of americans between the ages of 18 and 24 are actually qualified to serve in the military. that's an appallingly small number. they're not qualified for reasons of physical ability, medical health reasons, drug use, criminality, whatever. so we don't have a big cohort. every year the army needs for the ground force about 69,
5:35 pm
70,000 people. last two they got 62,000 which they said was their goal. but we also don't know about the quality of those recruits because we continually reduced standards for them. so what we've got we really need to hold onto. the second thing is beyond recruiting his training. when you begin to look at the combat units and you look at 40,000 nondeployable soldiers serving in the regular army of the united states, the active component right now, roughly eight to 10% of every battalion or brigade has nondeployable soldiers. that's anywhere from 50 to 150, to 200. you have to understand when you go into combat, if anything, you want to go in with more soldiers than you normally have because you have to reckon with casualties, reckon with losses due to illness or accidents, as well as wounds in battle. we are actually looking at combat units who would have to go in with less than a full complement.
5:36 pm
40,000 is inexcusable. why are they still on the books? we've known about them for a long time. well, the army knows how difficult it is to keep people and retention is not very high. a lot of people leave because they are disgusted with service in the army or the marines for other kinds of reasons, or the navy and air force. i focus on the ground force because when you start to look at the numbers available that you could put on the ground in europe right now to quote unquote deter the russians, it's not a very large number. if we'd be lucky to get 70, 80, 90, 100,000 troops on the ground, and they have to be equipped and organized in the right way. in other words, you can't send large numbers of light infantry men to fight in an area like poland or ukraine against the russians. if you did, they'd be killed quickly. so we don't have very much. we have perhaps the ability right now to put between five and ten so-called armored brigade combat teams on the ground. and getting them there is not easy. we haven't run any big exercises
5:37 pm
for years, moving 50, 80, 100,000 troops. the transportation infrastructure is not being thoroughly examined. we haven't tested our ability to do much. if so when president starts to say we will do x, we are in trouble. >> tucker: let's fire the seals. i noticed none of the neocons who claim to love the military have said one word about this. liz cheney isn't defending them, she loves the military. colonel macgregor, it's great to see you, thank you. unbelievable. >> thank you. >> tucker: thank you. so some of the most purportedly prestigious universities in the country are going virtual, so a lot of people are wondering the obvious, what's the point of these places? one guy essentially developed an alternative but you're going to want to hear about it if you're if you have kids, don't send them to gail, that will wreck them. he joins us next. ♪ ♪

had skills of any kind. and so that experience -- i just was so frustrated because i was working for a small business owner like three days a week i'm traveling all over the state of michigan, i'm installing telecommunications wires, before wi-fi when you needed to plug into high-speed internet. >> tucker: while you were in college. >> yeah. i'm cramming all my classes two days a week and am working three days a week and on the job i was in over my head every day. i was learning stuff all the time. i would like just -- you're out in the world, right? you're learning because you're experiencing the marketplace. and i just got so irritated. i thought this whole idea of college, the way that it's done is so absurd, and the analogy is -- that have come up with sense is imagine if we taught bike riding the way that we teach careers. you'd spend the first 25 years of your life in rooms learning about the history of bikes, the

forest where rubber trees are growing to make the tires. it you would maybe label pictures of bikes sometimes and you would be taught by people who hate bikes that have never rated them. and you would not be permitted to ride them. no, no, that's dirty, you don't do that, you just study them. and then you graduate and you're dropped off in the middle of the highway, congratulations, now go ride a bike. >> tucker: that was a really just in conversation. isaac moorhouse, the whole thing is on fox nation, just head over to tuckercarlson.com. so the democratic party's top lawyer is now calling on nancy pelosi to reclassify republican member the congress is insurrectionist and banned them from running for reelection, because that's not an attack on democracy. we will explain next. ♪ ♪

insurrection -- it was a lot of things, it wasn't an insurrection, no evidence of that, why are they calling it an insurrection? now we know. mark allies, probably the biggest democratic lawyer in america has productive articles or prediction. "before the midterm election we will have a serious discussion about whether individual republican house members are disqualified by section three of the 14th amendment from serving in the congress." what's that amendment? well, that the amendment adopted right after civil war that your habits, wait for it, insurrectionist, from holding office, so if you don't want to lose the congress, just ban the other side from losing. not an attack on democracy. professor of law at george washington university joins us tonight. mr. turley. so maybe -- if you're concerned about short-circuiting democracy, maybe you shouldn't prevent loaders from -- voters from electing whoever they want, right? >> nothing says democracy like borrowing people from running for office apparently. it's very common in countries like iran.

they just disqualified hundreds of people from their ballot. this is a much more modest idea, but it's an equally dangerous one. it's based on a very flawed understanding of what's called the disqualification because of the 14th amendment. in this was really something that was put into the 14th amendment when stephen -- when alexander stephen showed up in 1865 to resume being a member of congress. well, before that he was vice president of the confederacy. and that didn't go over very well, particularly when he was in the company of former confederate senators and military leaders, so they put this thing in. they said look, if you took a previous oath to the united states and you broke it, you went with the rebellion, then you really can be disqualified from office. well, the problem of course is that was a rebellion. 750,000 people died in what was
5:57 pm
the civil war. and so what they are suggesting here is that this was really a rebellion and that these members, by supporting the challenge to the electoral votes, were giving essentially aid and comfort to the rebels. and they could be disqualified. one democratic number has suggested disqualifying 120 republicans because they signed on to a brief supporting a challenge of the election in texas. >> tucker: dewar memo the name of that member? i hate to put you on the spot. >> i think it was pascal or somebody. but it was -- it was an amazing statement. of course the filing in the federal courts, the exercise of free speech and get that would be the basis for declaring you a rebel. and look, like most people on earth, i condemned what happened on january 6th, i was actually very critical of the president's speech well who is giving it.

but it was a protest that turned into a riot. because the security had a total breakdown. i mean, you don't -- it's not belittling what happened to say that it wasn't an insurrection, but the fbi tried mightily to find evidence of an insurrection. virtually everyone charged from that day have been charged with things like trespassing or unlawful entry. not with sedition. >> tucker: if you have evidence of insurrection is him, tell us what it is. i believe in uso's, i just went to see the evidence. jonathan turley, great to see you. >> thank you very much. >> tucker: we want to do something that we probably shouldn't do, so cnn had new year's eve coverage, one of their stars got loaded and made a total mess on the air, probably did it so we would play the tape, we probably should not but we are taking the bait. ♪ ♪
