5:08 pm
i'm not a pro on giving advice about what it's like in illinois , but you cannot treat business owners and you can't put so much burden on the peopl that are the makers. and i appreciate that they need that taxes are important, but you just get to a breaking poin i think illinois has last thought of how the money is made . you get one, i get one. through inextricable once in a while and maybe he will lay three eggs. it's brutal, and the lack of empathy and compassion for the makers, we are 24-7, 365. we don't get days off. we had to show up work for $3 a a time. it's a hard business to succeed in. to actually, i did incredibly well, the american dream is alive right i'm a billionaire, and everything in life that you
5:09 pm
would ever dream of, i've got i or i've done whatever i wanted to do and that's great. but that's not really what make you happy. what makes you happy is seeing growth and seeing the dream is still alive. and that makes me proud to. the u.s. government is the greatest business in the world to pray to 50 percent of the upside is that every deal. they just keep laying more honest. i got involved with mitt romney and that campaign because my partner that bodice and bought 20 percent at jimmy tom's in 2007 grew up with the romney family. was a nice man and thought he would be a great leader so i supported him. after obama won his second term i was completely annihilated i'

♪ >> the cool thing is you can start you never thought you would meet. one of them for many years, he was one of the most popular characters on the show general hospital. then the network told all the actors they had to get the vaccination or lose their job. he thought this was a free country, thought it was his bod and his choice and got fired fo it. now he sued abc. he told us that a lot of people on the set agreed with him, but they stayed quiet to correct their careers. here it is. ♪ >> i was still blown away that i'm sitting here having this conversation with you. and never thought i would do this. also, i can't turn a blind eye.
5:17 pm
when i see people being coerced so i guess and a way this can't fight kinda chose me. even though i'm the bring in bu bringing this lawsuit, this is much bigger than me. this is about basic human rights . and the freedom come at the medical freedom to choose great it's about the people who have lesser jobs in the ones that will lose their jobs in the future because of these corporate men vaccine mandates. i'm confident and i'm hoping we can make an impact with these case, i have a great team of lawyers who i was introduced from robert kennedy. the attorneys in la our in the forefront of this fight, you ma have heard about some of these places. the avenue cases about la county , la safety and even against gavin newsom. the same group that is helping with those cases are helping me now as well which is a group
5:18 pm
called the perc group as well s i'm grateful for that. >> tucker: as you are there in this idyllic world in the job that you love. i'm watching a man he loves tha wants to keep doing it, but he can't. so that is there is something really sad about that. so you hear these vaccine mandates are coming down from the corporate monsters at disney , do you take it seriously , do you think it's going to actually happen? >> yes. >> really? could get yes, i think it was going in that direction. and we were hearing about it. they said they were going to take religious exemption, and w put in for that and that was denied. >> so you went with the process?
5:19 pm
>> i did. even though i'm against all of its freight i went with that. could get no one ever says that out loud, but i know a million of people who have gotten the fakes fake vaccination cards. i'm not taking a position eithe way, but you could have done that. >> believe me, i heard about that, and i know people that have them, but that's not standing up, i couldn't do that i'm not that person that can just turn a blind eye, i have t fight freight if icao corporation is pulling people and coercing them, i am adding to the problem if i would have done that. i feel the same way just you know. >> walking away of course is a great job, great income. there was no choice. >> at one of the things i'm disappointed is is there i am the only one sitting here.
5:20 pm
there are so many people in hollywood, many people and the entertainment industry that agree with my values and my views on this, and a massive social media accounts, but they are too afraid to speak up, which blows my mind because the are always hoping that this vaccine mandates will go away o their own and they're not. they don't want to add salt to an already inflamed wound, but let me tell you, your coworkers you don't have to mention any names or anything, but 25 years. >> the this is what i say to people, let's say everybody was standing up for me on the sets, one of the comments i get is i am vaccinated, but i stand for medical freedom. think that's an important thing to say. if we were to hold arms togethe and they would have canceled th show and that means the crew doesn't have their jobs.
5:21 pm
>> that's what i believe. i don't think we are to get are zealots. >> we are kind of the show over here on the side that makes the a little bit of money and has a slot. we are always skating on thin ice, we have to be super careful , if we would have done that, i think they would have canceled the show. so that's not an option. there are a lot of people comin up to me privately, there's a lot of people on the show, and i'm not going to name names obviously, but there are a lot of conservatives on the show. >> we don't mean to criticize big pharma. bill gates is one of the bigges in the mrna vaccine and tony fo fyke is the limit of the bigges opponents. private enough to get a close look at that question per it pu it in his book the real anthony
5:22 pm
and fauci. we spoke to him about what he found, listen carefully to this conversation. >> in the book, even in the title of the book you make the convict between fauci and bill gates. those who aren't familiar with that connection can you give us a sense of what is. >> in 2000 tony fauci flew out to washington and he had this very strange meeting and bill gates and his $85 million mansion on the gates of lake, washington. he said i want to propose a partnership in the partnership was to vaccinate all of humanity . they ended up calling that they rechristened the program the
5:23 pm
decade of vaccines, it went to the un and gave this speech in which he promised to vaccinate essentially all of humanity wit the multi- vat or e of vaccines by 2020. and he began asserting and usin his florencia p to create a series of quasi- intergovernmental agencies. and then he gained control of the who. what he calls what he does full and throw capitalism. it's not florencia p, it's abou enriching the capitalist. what he does is he--and he does this in a number of areas, he does it with food, he does it with core curriculum, he buys large stakes in companies that could benefit from a change in
5:24 pm
governmental policies, a worldwide change in governmenta policies. he owns large stakes in almost all the big pharmaceutical companies, and he gives essentially about a billion dollars to who every year, but through rotary international international, through other foundations, but they are in th u.s. which is the second biggest . that gives him control over who 's policies, over the analysis of the who saying ther is nothing that goes through wh that is not vetted first by the gates foundation. who controls the hiv money and it funds the health agencies of most african countries so they are completely reliant on those annual checks from who. what gates in who do because a
5:25 pm
lot of people interview ho do not want to do this, he is taking them away from their traditional occupations which was economic development by a chain of food supply and production. in local democracy and local controls. who does very little of that an they focus over 50 percent of their budget focused on the polio vaccine, the more you loo at it though, the more corrupt eight gets, but his teal with tony fauci, which i go into in detail what the result is, the outcome for that bargain on the lives of millions and millions of africans and south asians ha been absolutely catastrophic. >> tony robbins has been famous for like 40 years is a motivational speaker.
5:26 pm
it probably shouldn't surprise any of us that there is a reaso for that. he's an amazing person. we had an amazing conversation with him. and then real-life exorcist explained what that life is like . it will change your view. that is straight ahead.

5:33 pm
>> rough in what way? >> my mom was beautiful woman she was all he's making a chang in that area, we had no money s we had no money for food, somebody fed me at thanksgiving when i was 11 and it changed me it made me believe that change or strangers care. if strangers cared about me, i wanted to care about strangers. my mom would abuse alcohol and prescription drugs. i never talked about it while she was alive, but i hope a lot of kids now and i look into a this tall white guy is successful, so some of these kids a family told them a true story i mom would for liquid soap down my throat saying i wa wiping. she was one of the most loving human beings and she pushed me to never give up, so a huge par of who i am came from her. if she had been the mom i wante than i probably probably
5:34 pm
wouldn't be the man i am proud to be. most of my skills came from protecting my brother and sister . i love it because when i'm if i had been well fed, i don't know. >> so you didn't have a predictable young life, you would've been a different person . >> my core has always been doin big things, regardless. she said tony has always been like this. she said when he was four years old, she was pregnant with my brother, we lived downtown central la, and we were on commercial street, and went nex door she gave me money for milk and. , she said where was it freight there was a poor boy there and gave him my money. she said where poor. i had that sensitivity, but i think suffering either makes yo really not care about people an focus on yourself, or it makes you have more compassion for
5:35 pm
what all human beings go through . >> when you hear the word exorcist or exorcism, what you think of? well, a movie of course beginning with the original almost 50 years ago. it turns out the topic is not fiction, it's entirely real. of one of the most amazing conversations we've ever had with anybody happened recently with the catholic priest, he is the appointed exorcist for the diocese of indianapolis. he is as sober and smart person with a good sense of humor. what he told us changed our vie of exorcism. he explains in this clip, the first one he ever saw he saw a human being levitate, watch this . >> 's levitation sometimes manifestation? >> i have witnessed that. >> you help witness levitation? >> can you describe it?
5:36 pm
>> it was in rome, one of the ones i was sitting in on and when the demon had manifested, and it was thrashing around and there is the eyes welled in the back of the head, throwing out blasphemies, in one moment the demon got very calm and just kind of sat in the chair like this and then just looked at me and grinned this hideous grin and then i look over, and the person is beginning to rise out of the chair in the demon is just looking at me and grinning greatly click it what i can do and i am looking at this in disbelief. what i found more amazing was the priest, his response, he as holding the right in his hand, he looks over and he sees the levitation, and he reads, he looks over stays the levitation he reads, he finally takes his hand and puts it on the head of the person and pushes them back down into the chair.
5:37 pm
what i think he was saying is i'm not impressed. what's more impressive is the prayer of the church, not the theatrics of the devil. >> i'm impressed, i'm pretty anti- devil, but. >> and that didn't scare you? >> i would say back then. that was back in 2006, but thes things don't phase me in the least anymore and i have witnessed a lot of things that people might think are not possible. again,. >> can you give us another example? >> so i did and exorcism in alaska three years ago at the request of the bishop there, an we were in a eskimo village, 30 the demon, when it manifested, there was hooping hume
5:38 pm
superhuman strength there, that was where five people took to hold the demon down. the demon only spoke to me once you could see the thrashing, yo can see the anger, you could se the pure hatred in evil that th demons have for the exorcist, because the demons have to obey exorcist. it's by divine justice. there is a certain way they hav to operate, and they can't stan that they are being commanded t do something by someone they consider inferior to themselves. so at one point when i held the crucifix up in the reason the exorcist will hold up the crucifix is to say you have bee defeated before you will be defeated again. when jesus was dying on the cross, the devil believed he ha one, but the moment of his perceived victory becomes the moment of his defeats. when i held up the crucifix, th demon yelled out at me and said your god is dead freight in the
5:39 pm
began to thrash on the floor an that is when it took five other people to hold the demon down. >> that conversation is well worth watching, even if you're not a devout catholic, you will learn something and you will likely be convinced father vinc lambert, you can stream that whole thing tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. here on fox nation. >> may be the single most powerful company in the world, one woman told us a shocking story about how amazon tries to use that power to destroy her family. and then the leader of the brecht state party, one of the few successful political partie in recent years, he almost died before he could get it off the ground. a very cold conversation next i a special edition of tucker carlson tonight.
