Blood tests reveal that the Coronavirus COVID-19 originated before September 2019 and China knew and hid its origins

Tucker Carlson: The coronavirus pandemic is a global fraud perpetrated by China, abetted by the powerful

More than a year into the pandemic, we still don’t know its full story

Tucker: COVID-19 a ‘global fraud’ by China that cost American lives
‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host accuses mainstream media of concealing the truth about the origins of pandemic

You’ve heard a lot recently about “voter fraud” and “election fraud.” But now comes more profound news, of a global fraud that began long before Election Day and has ruined millions of lives, killed hundreds of thousands, and deeply affected the outcome of our presidential election.

We speak, of course, of the coronavirus pandemic. Simply put, we’ve been lied to.

The latest evidence comes from samples collected during Red Cross blood drives last year and analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in a study published on Monday.

Researchers tested 39 blood samples from California, Washington and Oregon that were collected between Dec. 13 and Dec. 16, 2019. At the time, no one in the United States had heard of COVID-19. The Chinese government didn’t even acknowledge its existence until Dec. 31. And yet, every one of those samples came back positive for coronavirus antibodies. Keep in mind that antibodies don’t develop for at least a week after exposure to the virus.

That means the human coronavirus was being transmitted throughout the American population far earlier, possibly months earlier, than we were told. We don’t know yet how it happened, but we know for certain that it did.

The CDC has found dozens more positive samples from blood tests taken beginning at the end of December, and they found them in many other parts of the country — in Michigan, Iowa, and Massachusetts.

Analysis of tests in other countries has shown even earlier spread. Scientists now know the coronavirus spread to Italy as early as last September and to South America two months later, in November.

So clearly, what we have been told for almost a year about the origins of the coronavirus is not true. Why are we just learning this now, a month after a presidential election? We’ve had reliable antibody tests since the summer, yet no one thought to test Red Cross blood samples until now? Why weren’t elected officials demanding a coherent account of where this virus that has changed American history forever came from, how it got to the United States and how it spread through our population? Why don’t we know that yet?

Because nobody seemed to care. Our elected officials were too busy enjoying their newfound power. They were shutting down small businesses and arresting people for kayaking without masks.

Back in January, 11 months ago, the Department of Homeland Security warned that American airports could be ground zero for a new pandemic, but Congress yawned. On Jan. 24, a day when, these blood samples now prove, the virus had already spread across the continent, the Trump administration held a classified briefing on the coronavirus for the entire U.S. Senate, but only 14 senators showed up for it. Why? Well, Jan. 24 was the final day of House Democrats’ opening statements in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump.

So the people in charge of protecting the country were not worried about coronavirus, but were standing in front of their mirrors rehearsing the moment when they could finally confront Alan Dershowitz about the dreaded Zelensky phone call.

Now they’re claiming the pandemic caught them completely by surprise. How do they get away with that? They get away with it because our public health establishment gives them cover and has all year. Two days before that classified Senate briefing that only 14 senators showed up for, Dr. Anthony Fauci went on Fox Business Network’s “Bulls & Bears” to reassure Americans they could trust the Chinese government.

FAUCI: From what I can see right now, they really are being much, much more transparent than what happened with SARS, where they really kept back information for a while. It was embarrassing to them. They’re really transparent now. They put the sequence of the virus up on the public database right away. So in that respect, they’ve been transparent.

In a well-functioning country, a line like that would ensure that you never work in public policy again. China has in fact been transparently dishonest about the virus. Beijing officials are now claiming the virus came to their country from somewhere else, that it arrived in frozen food, possibly as a bioweapon staged by the U.S. military. They’re not saying this in secret. They’re saying it on social media. But so far, Twitter hasn’t bothered to fact-check that claim. Like Fauci, Silicon Valley trusts China far more than they trust you.

Ron Klain, Joe Biden’s pick for White House chief of staff, told Axios on Jan. 27 that China has been “more transparent and more candid than it has been during past outbreaks.” Why did Ron Klain think that? Possibly because the World Health Organization told him to think so.

On Jan. 8, the WHO — funded, of course, by the Chinese government — released a similar message: “Preliminary identification of a novel virus in a short period of time is a notable achievement and demonstrates China’s increased capacity to manage new outbreaks.”

In other words, the rest of us ought to be thanking the government of China for the blessing of COVID-19. A week later, WHO was back with more demonstrably untrue propaganda straight from their overlords in Beijing.

That was yet another dangerous lie that unquestionably cost American lives, but Twitter didn’t fact-check that either. Instead, the American media dutifully amplified the message. They told us anyone who suggested this thoroughly Chinese virus came from China was, by definition, a racist. So thorough was the news blackout on the Chinese origins of this virus that you had to go to Australian television to find out what was actually happening.

A few weeks ago, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” interviewed a Chinese virologist, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who fled her country with this message for us: This virus came from a government lab in China. She said she knew that in her own country she would have been punished, possibly killed, for saying so. So she came here, to the land of the free. What did she find? She found her words censored by American tech companies working in tandem with the tyrants she fled.

Internal documents now prove that Chinese officials knew they were facing a coronavirus pandemic — something they’d never seen before — but they hid that information from the world and they arrested those who tried to report it. More critically, millions of people continued to travel through the city of Wuhan in central China, the epicenter of the pandemic. Then more than a million Chinese citizens flew to the United States. It wasn’t until Jan. 20 that Chinese President Xi Jinping finally admitted the virus could be contagious. At best, that’s criminal negligence. At worst, it’s something like mass murder.

But no, said the WHO. In fact, it was just more evidence that the Chinese Communist Party was doing an extraordinary job managing the pandemic.

DR. BRUCE AYLWARD, WHO SENIOR ADVISER TO THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL, MARCH 25: Right now, there’s very, very few countries that have actually been able to reverse this epidemic and bring their cases down to [a] very low level. And in fact, the only country that has done that is China. It was the passion, the diligence, the sense of responsibility, the seriousness of the average Chinese — and I want to use that term very carefully because they weren’t average. They were extraordinary people, but they were driven by a sense of collective responsibility.

Got that? The Chinese are driven by “a sense of collective responsibility.” Contrast that with us fat, lazy Trump-voting Americans. We demand to go to church on Sundays or go out to dinner with our families once in a while and then deservedly, we get sick and die. Not Xi Jinping and the obedient communist nation he leads. They found a better way.

That’s the message from the media, our health establishment, and our elected officials, and it has been for almost a year. But it’s not the whole story. We know that now. We’re still not even close to knowing what really happened. We should find out.

Democratic elites are promoting a class system based on race and gender and sexual orientation

Tucker Carlson: The ‘diversity’ delusion and the destruction of the American meritocracy

Imagining a truly diverse corporate America

Tucker: Elites using identity politics to preserve class system

‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host accuses liberals of pushing Biden to use gender, race to pick Cabinet

Imagine for a moment that you were an incompetent public official, and you didn’t want anyone to know you were incompetent. What would you do?

Well, your first task would be to destroy the meritocracy, the system that rewards people in this country for their effort and their talents as opposed to rewarding them for irrelevant criteria like how they look. A meritocracy is the main threat to incompetent people. It keeps them from getting rich and powerful, so they hate it.

So what does tearing down a meritocracy look like in practice? It looks a lot like Joe Biden staffing a presidential administration. A recent piece in Politico reports that the Congressional Black Caucus is demanding that Biden select a Black secretary of defense. Not a secretary of defense who is good at defending America, mind you, a secretary of defense with the correct skin color.

Now, feminist groups are mad about this, says Politico — not because it would leave the country vulnerable, but because they want a female secretary of defense. According to these groups, the secretary of defense should look like them because it’s all about them, not about the Pentagon or the country or the military threats we might face in the future. It is about identity, which is to say it’s about narcissism. “When I see people in power, I must see myself.” That’s the demand, and not just at the Pentagon.

Here’s how covered the race to replace Steve Mnuchin at the Treasury Department: “Lael Brainard, who is white [sic], is seen on Wall Street and by her skeptics on the left as the most likely Treasury secretary … Raphael Bostic, who would be the first Black and first openly gay Treasury secretary, is also receiving some consideration.”

Vox went on to note that some, “Hispanic Democrats” are upset that there are “no Hispanic candidates legitimately in the mix for the other three top jobs” in a Biden administration.

Hispanic, Black, gay — those are categories. They’re not people. They’re not individuals. This is about identity, not country. It’s about Balkanization, not unity. “Straight White men are the enemy,” says the party led by one, and so it goes. It’s hard to imagine anything uglier than this. This doesn’t go anywhere that you’d want to go. It ends with discord and worse, but it continues.

Here’s the Huffington Post’s account of the struggle to fill Kamala Harris’ Senate seat in the state of California: “Three main camps and their subgroups are trying to influence [Gov. Gavin] Newsom: Those advocating for a Black woman; those advocating for a Latino; and those advocating for a member of the LGBT community.”

In other words, certain jobs for certain identities. Certain skin colors have pre-prescribed roles. How is this different from a traditional caste system? How is this better than the Jim Crow South? Those are fair questions, but no one ever asks them. Instead, the media just applaud.

You’ll notice at this point that no one ever explains what exactly diversity is, not with any precision. Yet diversity is now required by corporate America, or at least their definition of diversity is. The NASDAQ, for example, has proposed new listing rules that require companies to “have or explain why they do not have at least two diverse directors, including one who self-identifies as female and one who self-identifies as either an underrepresented minority or LGBTQ+.”

Not to be outdone, the bank Credit Suisse announced it has created an index of 350 “LGBTQ-inclusive companies,” and they will, of course, be rewarded accordingly.

Think this through for a minute. There’s a lot of money at stake here with these definitions, and a lot of power that attaches. At some point we’re going to need highly specific ways to verify that the people who are benefiting from these categories deserve to, that they are indeed women (whatever that now means) or that they are legitimately LGBTQ+. What does all that verification look like? Blood tests? Home monitoring? We’ll find out at some point, unfortunately.

Janet Yellen doesn’t seem worried about that. Yellen is Joe Biden’s pick for Treasury secretary, and she’s mindlessly on board with all of this. She’s rich enough to be. Here’s Yellen explaining that eliminating hard-to-define social disparities is a central goal of federal economic policy going forward:

YELLEN: We risk missing the obligation to address deeper structural problems –inequality; stagnant wages; racial disparities in pay, job opportunities, housing, food security, and small business lending to deny wealth-building to communities of color; gender disparities to keep women out of the workforce and keep our economy from running at full force. It’s a convergence of tragedies.

The idea, if you weren’t clear, is this: Everybody pays money into the federal Treasury, but only some people benefit, depending upon who Janet Yellen thinks should benefit.

But step back a few feet. Everything Yellen said is the opposite of the actual truth. If you’re actually in favor of diversity, real diversity, you’ll notice that the diversity measures they’re proposing won’t make anything more diverse.

These proposals are merely a way for the people in charge to hire more of their friends. What you’re seeing is an attempt to preserve and codify the class system that is already in place and is growing more rigid by the day. If you really want to flatten America’s social structure, you would demand a return to meritocracy. You’d want a system where anyone, no matter where they were born or what they look like or who they slept with, could succeed. That’s what we used to have, but it’s the opposite of what the left is now demanding.

If you really wanted to make companies more diverse, you would try to actually diversify them. You would hire people who were not in any sense like you, people with actually different backgrounds. You could hire more people with technical degrees, for example, and fewer who studied marketing or communications. You’d find people who lived in rural zip codes. You’d seek out employees who were deeply involved in their churches or owned guns, or who had close family members who died of opioid overdoses.

More than anything, on day one, you would put a cap on the number of employees who went to elite colleges. Let’s just start with the top 100 on the U.S. News & World Report annual list. You would put an outright ban on hiring Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Stanford graduates. They’ve got enough representation to last for the next half-century. You’d make any previous employment at McKinsey & Company or any other absurd consulting firm instantly disqualifying.

You would look beyond race and sex to the cultural markers that actually matter and that actually determine later success in a class system. You would subtract points from any applicant who’d ever spent the night on Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard or St. Barts, and you would add points to applicants who vacation in Branson or Lake Mead or the Florida Panhandle. You would start an aggressive affirmative action program for fat people, for deer hunters, for anyone who drives an American car or eats dinner while wearing a hat. Are those people represented on corporate boards? I don’t think so. Find a fat person in corporate America. There’s not one.

Our leaders are doing precisely the opposite of any of that, and it tells you everything. What you’re seeing is the ruling class pulling up the ladder as they always do, as all ruling classes do. How many of the people lecturing you about diversity come from exactly the same elite background? Pretty much all of them, so what they’re advocating for is people just like themselves.

We can give you 1,000 examples, but we’ll just pick one. Marcus Mabry runs global digital programing at CNN and has been around journalism forever. He’s now one of CNN’s most energetic diversity enforcers, but here’s the interesting part: Mabry himself went to high school at The Lawrenceville School in New Jersey. He got two degrees from Stanford. Then he spent decades at Newsweek, The New York Times and Twitter. So naturally, he claims to be highly concerned about inclusion. Here he is in 2016 lecturing his then-employer about it:

MABRY: There is a lot of work to do at Twitter and throughout tech, and that’s one of the reasons I came to Twitter, which is, I think it’s so important that we’re at the table. It was true of The New York Times, too. But we have to make more of us. We have to create more of us and not just African-American, but also Latino and Hispanics who are very much also underrepresented in technology and at Twitter … I’m convinced our current leadership is committed to improving that diversity, but there’s a lot of work to do.

Marcus Mabry, who is on the board of one of the most expensive boarding schools in the world, is fighting the man. Of course he is. It’s working for him and all his friends. It’s just not working for you, and it’s not intended to. You are excluded from their inclusion. But you knew that.

With Joe Biden we get fascism: the collusion of government and corporatism

Tucker Carlson: A Biden victory would usher in the Age of Oligarchy | Fox News

If Joe Biden wins, the tech companies, the big banks, Beijing and the billionaire class will have won as well

Editor’s Note: This article is adapted from Tucker Carlson’s opening commentary on the Nov. 6, 2020 edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight”

Tucker Carlson:  Who exactly is Joe Biden, the man who may be our president come Jan. 20? The truth is, as of right now, we don’t really know.  We have no clue what Joe Biden actually thinks, or even if he’s capable of thinking. He hasn’t told us and no one’s made him tell us for a full year.

n fact, it’s becoming clear there is no Joe Biden. The man you may remember from the 1980s is gone.  What remains is a projection of sorts, a hologram designed to mimic the behavior of a nonthreatening political candidate: “Relax, Joe Biden’s here. He smiles a lot. Everything’s fine.” That’s the message from the vapor candidate.

So who’s running the projector here? Well, the first thing you should know is that the people behind Joe Biden aren’t liberals. We’ve often incorrectly called them that. A liberal believes in the right of all Americans to speak freely, to make a living, to worship their God, to defend their own families, and to do all of that regardless of what political party they belong to or what race they happen to be born into or how far from midtown Manhattan they currently live.

A liberal believes in universal principles, fairly applied. And the funny thing is, all of that describes most of the 70 million people who just voted for Donald Trump this week. Most of them don’t want to hurt or control anyone. They have no interest in silencing the opposition on Facebook or anywhere else. They just want to live their lives in the country they were born in, and it doesn’t seem like a lot to ask. So by any traditional definition, they are liberal.

However, our language has become so politicized and so distorted that you would never know it. What you do know for certain is that the people behind Joe Biden are not like that at all. They don’t believe in dissent. “You think one thing? I think another. That’s OK.” No, that’s not them at all.

They demand obedience to diversity, which is to say, legitimate differences between people is the last thing they want. These people seek absolute sameness, total uniformity. You’re happy with your corner coffee shop? They want to make you drink Starbucks every day from now until forever, no matter how it tastes. That’s the future.

Now, if these seem like corporate values to you, then you’re catching on to what’s happening. The Joe Biden for President campaign is a purely corporate enterprise. It’s the first one in American history to come this close to the presidency. If a multinational corporation decided to create a presidential candidate, he would be a former credit card shill from Wilmington, Del., and that’s exactly what they got. What’s good for Google is good for the Biden campaign and vice versa.

We have never seen a more soulless project. They literally picked Kamala Harris as Biden’s running mate, someone who can’t even pronounce her own name. Not that it matters, because it’s purely an advertising gimmick.

We watched all of this come together in real time. We stood slack-jawed in total disbelief as a man with no discernible constituency of any kind rose to the very top of our political system, as if by magic. It’s possible in the end that Joe Biden himself never convinced a single voter of anything over the entire duration of the presidential campaign, but he didn’t have to. Joe Biden won the Democratic nomination because he wasn’t Bernie Sanders. He came to where he is today because he isn’t Donald Trump. It’s the shortest political story ever written.

Now, whatever you may think of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, they did it the traditional way.  Each one of them had the support of actual voters. Living, breathing people loved them, believed in them, vested their hope in them, and, by the way, agreed with their ideas, which they articulated clearly. But corporate America hated them both. They couldn’t be controlled, particularly Donald Trump, whose complete unwillingness to submit made him the greatest possible threat. That’s why they hate Donald Trump, because he won’t obey.

It’s insulting to say that Joseph R. Biden won this election, if that is what comes to pass. The tech companies will have won. The big banks will have won. The government of China, the media establishment, the permanent bureaucracy, the billionaire class — they will have won, and not in the way that democracy promises. If a single person equaled a single vote, a coalition like that could never win anything. There aren’t enough of them.

But as a group, they have something that Donald Trump’s voters sadly do not have, and that is power. They have lots of power and they plan to wield that power, whether you like it or not. It’s all starting to look a lot like oligarchy at this point. The people who believe they should have been in charge all along now may actually be in charge.

So what does that mean for the rest of us? Will corporate America declare victory and back
off? Can we speak freely again? Will they take the boot from our necks? Can we have America back now that the Great Orange Emergency has passed? Well, the mandatory lying orders finally be lifted?

Those are the questions we’ll be paying attention to, since we plan to stay in this country. And one other thing while we’re at it, who’s excited to greet our new corporate overlords? Who plans to collaborate, particularly of those on the right side, the Republican side, the side that said it was defending you? Who’s happy about all of this? That seems worth keeping track of, just so we know who we’re dealing with here.

Ned Ryan is the CEO of American Majority. He does keep track, and he joins us tonight. Ned, it’s great to see you.

Ned Ryan: Good to see you, Tucker.

Tucker Carlson: It goes without saying, not any kind of call, we don’t know where this is going; votes are being counted; there are apparent irregularities; those will be examined, we pray; in some cases, they’ll be litigated. But a lot of people in Washington feel that this is over, and some of them seem pretty happy about it. Who are they?

Ned Ryan: Well, first of all I want to highlight, you’re right, and I think your opening monologue was it’s incumbent upon Trump to not stop to use every option at his disposal.

Tucker Carlson: Right.

Ned Ryan: If nothing else for the implications of it: the American people deserve a free and fair election that they can trust, and trust an institution instead of half the people think it’s been stolen.

But think about it. You’re right. This ruling class of administrative state, big tech, corporations: all of these people think that they can get rid of Trump and we’ll go back to normal. We’ll create a normal. We’ll go back. They’re delusional.

I mean, the point I want to make here tonight is that Trump has red pilled literally 70 million American people. He’s illuminated everything, whether it’s the danger of China, whether it’s the danger of big tech, the administrative state, fake news, a whole litany of issues. They’re delusional if they think that these people, myself included, are somehow just going to disappear if they can somehow take out Trump.

And they’re wedded to a broken system. That’s the other thing, Tucker. They’re wedded to a broken system that has sold out the American people. And now they want to go, and you know, they’re going to try and snap back to advancing policies that are actually going to sell out the American people and the middle class especially. They’re not going to fix immigration; they’re not going to fix trade deals; they’re not going to break up big tech; they’re not going to do any of these things. and yet this is only going to accelerate whatever comes next. Again, America first is not going away.

Tucker Carlson: So I was particularly interested, and there’s a lot of this but I just want to highlight one to begin. In the comments of Lindsey Graham, who just won reelection in the state of South Carolina because conservatives voted for him, the people around Trump put a great deal of pressure on Lindsey Graham to send the money. So after a day or two he made a great show of sending a 500 grand.

But then on the issues that matter, Lindsey Graham immediately ran away from the ideas he claimed to support and said he will be happy to sell out his voters with an amnesty deal, like within hours of the election.

Ned Ryan: But this is the surrender caucus. It feels like they’ve been waiting in the wings. They can’t wait to get back into where they actually control the Republican party. And I’m talking not only about Lindsey Graham, Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney, heck, even Liz Cheney. These neocon globalists, who can’t get enough of the vulture capitalism and the selling out of the American middle class. They can’t wait to get back into power.

And the shameful part of it is you know that they have not embraced Trump for a variety of reasons because he’s a repudiation of everything that they have stood for. And he has been in control of the party and now they’re waiting in hopes that he somehow will be removed from it. And these are the kind of people, Tucker, who quite frankly have been surrendering, have been going along to getting along, don’t know how to win.

And quite frankly a lot of their policies, as we have seen, they’ve been more concerned about rebuilding the middle east than the midwest. That is a shameful part of the Republican party, and they are doing nothing for the most part right now to stand up and say we’re not going to let this happen what is taking place with this election because they fail to understand if we don’t fix what has taken place‒—and I am convinced that major fraud has taken place‒—it is the end of free and fair elections. Republicans won’t win again. They will be in a permanent minority if we are not careful, especially if we are not careful about these Georgia senate races. And we have no backstop if we lose the majority in the senate.

Tucker Carlson: Well, that is exactly right, and, of course, that’s the tragedy. You have a deeply flawed party that refuses to protect its own voters and represent their legitimate interests. But they are the only hope that this country doesn’t descend into something totally unrecognizable.

Ned Ryan: Kind of scary.

Tucker Carlson: So it puts 70 million decent people in a tough spot. Ned Ryan, we’ll talk to you again I appreciate it.

Tucker Carlson: Thanks, Tucker.

Tucker Carlson: So there is a political realignment coming. The distance between what people want and what they’re getting from their leaders is just too vast. Some Democrats understand this and they’re very nervous about it. We’ve got the tape next.

The mainstream media and the Democratic Party and the intelligence agencies and the tech monopolies are your enemies. Like fascists they are misleading you with propaganda so that you will obey.


Tucker Carlson: Hunter Biden scandal shows media collusion with powerful is the real threat to America
When journalists strike secret alliances with the very people they’re supposed to be holding accountable, we are in deep trouble.

Editor’s Note: This article is adapted from Tucker Carlson’s opening commentary on the Oct. 30,2020 edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

OPINION By Tucker Carlson | Fox News 10/31/2020

Tucker Carlson: Media collusion is the real threat to democracy 

‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host accuses the mainstream media of collaborating with the Democratic Party to take down Trump

For five years, we have watched the news media treat Donald Trump in a way that no American president has ever been treated. Richard Nixon himself — disgraced and forced to resign his office in the end — got a pass by comparison.

Reporters hate Trump with an all-consuming mania. They hate him so intensely that at times it’s been amusing to watch. If Donald Trump announced a cure for cancer at one of his rallies, CNN would denounce him for fixing drug prices.

If you’re a fair minded person, all this has been infuriating. Not only is it dishonest, it’s also patronizing because it’s almost unbelievably stupid.

“Trump spied for Russia! Trump works for Putin! Trump’s a racist because he likes borders and doesn’t want to live in Haiti!”

Clearly, all the smart kids went into finance. America’s websites and TV stations got the rest.Unfortunately, we’ve got to live with the consequences of that.

But as grating as all of this is, unremitting hostility to the president of the United States is far from the greatest threat America faces. Reporters are supposed to be tough on people with power. That’s why we have journalism, to keep a close eye on those who have outsized influence over our lives.

The people we should watch carefully include business moguls, the intelligence agencies, prominent academics, cultural figures, military leaders, and most obviously, our politicians. The rest of us can’t really know what the people in charge are doing at all times. A reporter’s job is to find out and tell us.

So in the end, the real threat to America isn’t too many nasty questions from reporters. It’s the opposite of that. The real threat is collusion. When journalists strike secret alliances with the very people they’re supposed to be holding accountable, we are in deep trouble. Lies go unchallenged.  Democracy cannot function. And that’s what we’re watching right now.

Thursday, we learned that the FBI is conducting an active investigation into Joe Biden’s son for business deals that apparently included his father, the former vice president. That is not speculation. It is confirmed. Former Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski sat for a five-hour interview with six FBI agents last week. They asked him about his business dealings in China with the Biden family.

Now, we don’t know if this investigation will result in indictments, but we know that it could. That’s significant because Joe Biden, as you may have heard, is running for president. The election is on Tuesday.  So by any possible measure, this is a blockbuster, stop-the-presses news story. It’s not some naughty picture from somebody’s laptop. This is a criminal investigation into business deals that we know for a fact Joe Biden was party, too.

So why haven’t you heard more about this? If you don’t watch Fox News, you’ve likely heard nothing at all. Not a word. Do you know why? Because the media are collaborating with the Democratic Party. They’re collaborating with the intelligence agencies that spy on Americans with impunity. They’re collaborating with the tech monopolies that have choked off the average person’s access to legitimate information.

We’re not overstating any of this. We wish we were. The people you’re supposed to be able to trust are dismissing a completely legitimate, verified news story.

These people wouldn’t know “Russian disinformation” if it got into the shower with them. They know nothing. Russia didn’t forge these emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Vladimir Putin didn’t invent the two separate meetings that Tony Bobulinski had with Joe Biden to discuss business in China, the business the FBI is now investigating in an active criminal investigation. That’s all entirely real. It happened. It is happening now. And the media know that it did. Yet they’re telling you it’s all fake, a concoction of a hostile foreign power.

So you have to ask yourself: At some point, why would they tell you what they know is not true? Because these people are not your allies. They’re not trying to help you or inform you. Just the opposite.

These people are your enemies. They are misleading you so that you will obey, and maybe it’ll work. Maybe they will get Joe Biden elected president next week without asking the most basic questions or vetting him in any way. That’s the gambit.

But what then? Many of these people will then go to work for Biden officially. We’d expect that because without Donald Trump to hyperventilate over, the business models at many news outlets will collapse and these people will need jobs. But Joe Biden and Kamala Harris can’t hire everyone at NBC. Some of these people have to continue to be “journalists.”

The question is, can they really do that? Can they keep playing pretend live on your screen every night after everything we have just witnessed.

Glenn Greenwald says that the Democratic Party, NSA, CIA, Neocons, Silicon Valley, Wall Street, mainstream media have united to impose an authoritarian government of censorship and suppression of information

Tucker Carlson: Glenn Greenwald has thought a lot about that question. Greenwald is a traditional leftist. He’s committed above all to forcing transparency on people who hold power.

Years ago Greenwald co-founded a news site called the Intercept. Today he resigned. In a statement Greenwald explained why. Quote:

“The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression.”

And he went on. Greenwald’s full statement is up tonight at an internet platform called Substack, which is not yet censored. No matter who you plan to vote for next week, we recommend that you read it.

Glenn Greenwald joins us tonight. Glenn, thanks so much for coming on. The idea of you resigning from a news organization you helped found is stunning. Tell us why you did.

Glenn Greenwald: Well the news organization that I co-created was in 2013 at the height of the Snowden reporting I left the Guardian to do it because I was seeing that there were a lot of constraints imposed on journalism and their ability, our ability, to report freely against governments, against power centers, against all kinds of institutions that wield authority. And the premise of the news outlet, the core overarching premise, the reason it was created was to ensure that journalists would always have complete journalistic independence and editorial freedom, never have to pull punches journalistically or pay homage to pieties because of the preferences, the partisan or ideological preferences of editors, or of anybody else. That was the core founding idea and vision.

And then that is what makes it so amazing, that at the very outlet that I co-created that s built on my reputation, my credibility, my journalistic accomplishments, then tried to intervene to censor me six days before an election because I wanted to publish reporting and analysis about the evidence that raises serious questions about the conduct of the candidate that all of the editors at that outlet vehemently and enthusiastically support.

Tucker Carlson: I would imagine that some of our viewers don’t read the Intercept. You live outside our country, which is one of the reasons I think you say what you think is true. Tell us what this portends for the future here in the United States.

Glenn Greenwald: So the Intercept was actually for a while a unique publication, and I think the vision I just described as one reason but another was that it was intended above all else to be highly skeptical of the claims of intelligence agencies. At the time when we were doing the reporting, the attacks were coming from the NSA, the CIA, the Deep State against me, against my source, Edward Snowden, against the reporting. And we knew they were lying constantly and disseminating propaganda in a very powerful way. So we set out to say we’re going to investigate them; we’re going to be skeptical of them; we’re going to subject their assertions to critical scrutiny.

And I am so embarrassed and angered that the media outlet that I created along with two other excellent journalists to do that, the only article I published about all of these documents that have emerged about Joe Biden, other than a column of mine where I denounced Facebook and Twitter for censoring it, was an article that made reference in passing to those documents very snidely and dismissively to say that no one should pay attention to it because it was Russian disinformation. And it cited a letter from John Brennan, James Clapper, Mike Hayden, and the rest of the goons from the CIA in the intelligence community asserting it. And that letter said we have no evidence that Russia is involved in any of this.

The Intercept omitted that phrase, simply cited that letter to try and encourage people to ignore this evidence on the grounds that Russia had manufactured it and that the evidence was fabricated even though there’s never been any evidence for that that’s been true and everything since has disproven it, showing Russia was not involved in any of this and nobody certainly not even Joe Biden disputes that these emails are and other text messages are completely real and authentic.

Tucker Carlson: That’s horrifying. So what you’re watching is agencies of the U.S. government turning their awesome and unconstrained powers against the American population.

Glenn Greenwald: This is the real story of the last four years of the Trump administration, which is that for a long time on the left, there was a healthy skepticism of the CIA. There was a lot of anti-war activism in the Bush and Cheney years. That has all disappeared.

And the reason it’s disappeared is because the CIA from the very first days of the Trump administration, even before he was inaugurated, devoted themselves to sabotaging the administration because Donald Trump questioned just a few of their pieties. And that can’t be done in Washington. Whoever does that must be destroyed.

And so the CIA and the Deep State operatives became heroes of the liberal left, the people who support the Democratic party. They’re now in a full union with the neocons, the Bush Cheney operatives, the CIA, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street. That is the union of power along with mainstream media outlets that are fully behind the Democratic party, which is likely to at least take over one branch of government, if not all of them, with the coming election, and that is a very alarming proposition because they’re authoritarian, they believe in censorship, and they believe in suppression of information that exposes them in any kind of a critical light.

Tucker Carlson: For a U.S. government agency to try and disseminate propaganda within the United States, I mean is there any clearer attack on democracy than that?

Glenn Greenwald: So when we were doing the Snowden reporting, one of the things that brought Ed, induced Edward Snowden, to come forward as someone who had worked in the CIA, in the NSA, was his anger and horror that the tools of the NSA had been turned on the American people. They’re supposed to spy on foreign adversary governments. But they weren’t. They were collecting our phone records.

Same with the CIA. They’re trained disinformation agents. That’s what they do. They lie for a living but they’re supposed to do that in other countries where we want to induce some sort of change, overthrow a government, topple a regime, whatever, ” interference”, the U.S. government wants to do, the way we’re all so upset that Russia did in 2016. That’s what they’re trained to do.

The law though, and the obvious foundational prohibition on having a security state, a national security state after World War II, was it was never supposed to be turned domestically. They weren’t supposed to be involved in our politics or disseminating propaganda.

Go turn on any of those other cable networks, or pick up the op-ed page of any of the biggest newspapers, and all you’ll see are ex-members of the CIA the DOJ, the FBI, the NSA, telling Americans what they ought to believe. They’ve infiltrated the means of communication domestically. They do it through leaks, they do it through clandestine operations and through lies. They propagandize the American people in a way that is incredibly dangerous no matter what your ideology is.

Tucker Carlson: I totally agree and I’m ashamed of the times that I made apologies for those agencies for this behavior. I really am. You are telling the truth. That’s really clear. Glenn Greenwald, congratulations on getting out of there. Good to see you.

Glenn Greenwald: Thank you, Tucker. I appreciate it.

Glenn Greenwald says the corruption in the U.S. News Media is absolutely pervasive

Tucker Carlson: Joe Biden emerged to speak to a local news station in Milwaukee. I haven’t heard much from him recently. He said virtually nothing about that New York post series about his son’s laptop and the emails on it that suggest Hunter Biden profited, and perhaps his father profited, from changes to American foreign policy.

Anyway here was Biden’s response to the story:

Joe Biden: “This is the same garbage, Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s henchmen. It’s the last ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family. And the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said there’s no basis at all.”

Tucker Carlson: Okay. Well, you know, he doesn’t say, he never says that the laptop or the emails and texts on it are fake. He does point to the intelligence people. He’s talking about a letter written by partisan former intel officials, who’ve admitted they don’t know anything about the laptop because they haven’t seen it. So don’t listen to the current Director of National Intelligence, Joe Biden says. Listen to John Brennan on MSNBC.

But the weirdest part of the clip is that Joe Biden denied that his son ever profited from his connections to Joe Biden even though Hunter Biden has admitted that, in fact, on camera.

ABC Interviewer: “You didn’t have any extensive knowledge about natural gas or Ukraine itself though.

Hunter Biden: “Uh, no, but I think that I had as much knowledge as anybody else that was on the Board, if not more.”

ABC Interviewer: “In the list that you gave me the reasons why you’re on that Board, you did not list the fact that you were the son of the Vice President. What role do you think that played?”

Hunter Biden: “I think that it is impossible for me to be on any of the Boards that I just mentioned without saying that I’m the son of the Vice President of the United States.”

Tucker Carlson: Okay, so the truth is this kind of garbage is ubiquitous in Washington. It’s how the entire private sector of the city makes its living. It’s how people pay their mortgages and send their kids to private school. This is what Washington does. It’s not an excuse. It’s just the truth.

So maybe if the Biden campaign admitted that, they’d be able to get past the story. But they’re not. They’re lying about it. So what do we make of that?

Glenn Greenwald is the co-founder of the Intercept, who joins us tonight. Glenn, thanks so much for coming on. Where do you think the story is right now? What do you make of it?

Glenn Greenwald: “Well the problem with the story is that, not that Joe Biden isn’t answering questions because that’s what a Presidential candidate would do if he’s not forced to, which is just simply evade questions that are being posed to him.

The problem is the corruption that is absolutely pervasive in the U.S. news media. There are newsrooms all throughout New York and Washington DC, where top editors are explicitly saying they do not want this story investigated. And they’re being clear that the reason that they don’t want to investigate it is because they think even if there’s corruption that’s exposed here, in their view Trump is worse. And therefore it would be malfeasance on the part of the media to report corruption on the part of Biden when Trump is so much more corrupt.

What they’re really saying is they see their role as journalists not as informing the public, to let the public decide which candidate is better and which is worse. They see journalism, the function of it is to defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden.

So many basic questions, Tucker, that journalists should be demanding Joe Biden to answer. Are the emails authentic? Do you claim that any of them have been fraudulently altered or fabricated? Did your son actually drop off that laptop in the Delaware repair store? Did you ever discuss with him meeting with Burisma executives or, in fact, meet with Burisma executives? Why was the prosecutor that you accepted as the replacement for the one you demand to be fired somebody who had no experience as a prosecutor or was himself imprisoned for embezzlement, was a lackey of the Ukrainian President? Why was somebody like that acceptable to you if the goal is, you claim, was good government in Ukraine as opposed to benefiting Burisma?

Maybe these are good answers to those questions, but he’s not answering them because the media has said you don’t have to.”

Tucker Carlson: Feels like there’s a lot of stuff here. I know there’s a lot on that computer. There are also documents floating around that are not from that computer. What have we learned recently that didn’t we know yesterday?

Glenn Greenwald: “Well, I mean, there are things that that are suggested strongly by these emails that we ought to know the answers to. Biden has always said he never acted on behalf of Hunter Biden or Burisma but these emails suggest the opposite that he actually did in fact meet with Burisma executives at Hunter’s request, which is why there’s an email thanking Hunter for the opportunity to meet with his father. Is that true? Did he meet with those executives?

There are emails that are suggestive of the fact that Hunter gave part of his salary to the Vice President and negotiated deals in China that were intended to personally benefit Joe Biden. Remember when Biden was in government for 50 years, he never made much money. He was looking to get rich, which he did once he left the White House. Did he ever consummate those deals or discuss any of those deals with Hunter?

And again, to me, the key question that is provoked by a lot of these emails is if it was the case that there was a noble and benevolent motive in trying to get this Ukrainian prosecutor fired and it wasn’t to help Burisma but instead to clean out corruption, why did they release the funds after one of the most corrupt people in all of Ukraine was appointed to that position? What is Joe Biden’s answer to that? If we had a working press, we would know it.”

Tucker Carlson: That’s exactly right. And thank you for always directing the conversation back to the foreign policy part of this, which is the most outrageous part of all. It’s been completely ignored except by you basically, and I think you’re exactly right about that. Glenn Greenwald, thank you.

Glenn Greenwald: “Good to be here, Tucker.”

Tucker Carlson: Why is the Vice President United States firing a prosecutor in the Ukraine? How does that help our country. It doesn’t, of course.

Big Tech opposes temporary blocking of H-1B guest worker visas because it wants to give your childrens’ jobs to cheap foreign labor

Well, Silicon Valley, the most powerful group of business lobbyists in the world, is now pushing the Trump administration to roll back its executive order on guest workers. They say their concern is diversity. It’s obviously nonsense so what’s the real motivation. We’ll tell you after the break.

Last week we told you about an executive order the President signed blocking new guest worker visas temporarily. This was, of course, in response to the mass unemployment among Americans because of coronavirus. It is a very smart thing to do, a much needed thing to do, one of the best things this President has done.

But we warned you at the time that it would only work if it wasn’t gutted, if it wasn’t watered down. That turned out to be prescient because many people, including some unfortunately inside the administration, would like to do just that.

The President’s order includes a requirement that within 30 days the Secretary of Homeland Security suggests changes to it. Already we are being told that tech companies and their allies in the White House are trying to use this 30 day review period as a way to fatally weaken the order and fill it with loopholes and exemptions. Keep in mind the tech industry is the single most aggressively left-wing part of the American business community. By far this push is being led by the country’s wealthiest tech companies‒—Apple, Google, Amazon, etc. ‒—and it’s not hard to figure out why.

All these companies are happy to lecture you about how America is irredeemably racist. Every day of the week they tell you that. They crow about diversity. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, of course, is leading the way as always. A week ago when the President’s order came out, Tim Cook tweeted this: quote,

“Like Apple, this nation of immigrants has always found strength in our diversity, and hope in the enduring promise of the American dream. … Deeply disappointed by this proclamation.”

Talk about a non-sequitur. And, of course, it’s more than that: it’s a lie. Tim Cook is not protecting the American Dream in any sense. If he was, he’d want to protect America’s fading middle class but he’s doing the opposite.

The vast majority of H-1B guest worker visas are awarded to a single country: India. That’s not diversity: one country. At this moment in Silicon Valley, 47 percent of all workers were born in foreign countries.

So pausing the H-1B program for even six months will free up tens of thousands of jobs for Americans of all backgrounds. You know those STEM classes your kids are taking, you know the college you’re paying so they can work in the tech field? They’re not going to get those jobs because they’ll be taken by foreign nationals. This might allow them a chance.

So Apple isn’t fighting for diversity. They’re doing exactly what they appear to be doing: they’re trying to keep wages down and keep their workers compliant by importing labor from abroad.

This isn’t about diversity. It’s about exploitation. It always is, and the administration should not fall for it.

Is Tucker Carlson accusing Republican officeholders of not defending normal American citizens?

Tucker Carlson: Voters need to demand change from the GOP

Republicans must work as hard as they can to make America fair again.

On Monday night’s show, we interviewed a U.S. Senator called Mike Braun. Braun is a Republican who represents the very Republican State of Indiana.

Braun ran for office two years ago as a conservative, but he has not governed like one. As the mob burned cities and shot police officers, Mike Braun used his power in the U.S. Senate to punish local police — cops were the real problem, Braun decided. So he sponsored legislation to make it easier for leftwing activist groups to sue and bankrupt individual police officers.

And then Mike Braun endorsed Black Lives Matter.

QUESTION: Do you support the Black Lives Matter movement?

SEN. MIKE BRAUN, R-Ind.: I support that movement, because it’s addressing an inequity that has not been solved, you know, from a grassroots level.

It’s hard to imagine that many of Mike Braun’s voters agree with any of that. Black Lives Matter has said it wants to eliminate police departments, dismantle the nuclear family and install socialism in the United States.

Even in the highly revolutionary year of 2020, those don’t seem like winning positions in the State of Indiana. So we asked Mike Braun to explain how that works exactly, and it didn’t go well. We’re not going to play you the tape. It feels like piling on to do that.

We will just sum it up this way. At one point in the interview, Mike Braun explained that he was pushing leftwing legislation because he was afraid of being criticized by Chuck Schumer, if he didn’t.

The whole thing went like that. It was remarkable. Almost beyond belief really. Again, we’re not trying to be mean here. Cruelty is easy, too easy, especially with politicians. The closer you get to them, the easier you realize it is.

And by the way, Mike Braun doesn’t seem like a bad person. If you live next door to him, you’d probably like him. Braun is just weak and he doesn’t really believe in anything. He is definitely not alone in that, an awful lot of Republican officeholders look very much like Mike Braun right now, probably most of them. That’s a problem.

In a moment like this, it is a severe and dangerous problem. Here’s why. Republicans at all levels could lose this fall. If they do, there will be profound consequences for you.

People who supported Donald Trump will be punished. There’s absolutely no question about that. There’s never been an American political party as radical and as angry as the Democrats are now. Imagine them with unlimited power, and that’s what they plan to get.

In their first year, Democrats will give voting rights to every illegal alien in this country, and then encourage many others to join them from abroad.

At a minimum, that means more than 20 million new Democratic voters overnight. No Republican will win nationally. Again, we will have one-party rule.

But Democrats don’t plan to stop there. In Congress, they will abolish the filibuster. That means they’ll be able to do whatever they want to do with just a simple majority, which they will have. They plan to pack the Senate by making the District of Columbia a state.

Giving statehood to D.C. is unconstitutional, clearly, but they’re not worried about that. They plan to pack the Supreme Court, too. They have said so.

So what will Democrats do with all of this untrammeled power? It’s pretty easy to imagine. We won’t go into details right now. We don’t want to wreck your night. But look around, you’ve got a pretty good idea of what’s coming.

The point is, and it could not be clearer, non-Democrats in America are in peril. We’re going to need someone with power willing to come to our defense. And that’s where people like Mike Braun come in. That was the point of last night’s interview.

Not to humiliate a specific senator, but to remind the Republican Party that it is our only shield. Yes, the Republican Party, flawed and infuriating, though it often is. The fact remains, the G.O.P. is the only institution still open to the rest of us, to Americans who want to live as they did just 15 years ago. Quietly, productively, without being harassed and harangued by self-righteous lunatics who mean them harm and they do.

If you want to be left alone to do your job and raise your family in this country, you will need a protector. That protector must be the Republican Party. There are no other options, but it must be a very different kind of Republican Party.

Keep in mind, we’re getting a new Republican Party no matter what happens. Even now, vultures wait just off stage to swoop in and claim the G.O.P. for themselves once Donald Trump is gone. Former Governor Nikki Haley tops that list, but there are many others on it.

The moment Trump leaves, they will attack him. They’ll tell you that Republicans lost power because they were mean and intolerant just like Donald Trump. And if you listen carefully, you can hear them say that even now. It’s a lie.

Republicans are failing for a much more obvious reason, a more fundamental reason. They’re failing because they haven’t done much that is worth doing. They haven’t tried very hard to improve your life. When the crisis came, they fled. They did nothing to defend you. They did nothing to defend the country.

They were paralyzed. Their so-called principles turned out to be bumper stickers they wrote 40 years ago. They had no clue what to do.

So from this day forward, it’s very simple. We’re going to have to tell them what to do, and that will work. No matter what they may believe privately, politicians respond to organized groups of voters. They want to win, above all, so they head to where the votes are.

Going forward, Republican voters should demand three things from their candidates, and if they don’t provide them, don’t vote for them. Here they are.

First is vigorous defense of total equality under the law. We are equal because we are citizens. Every American has precisely the same rights as every other American. Period. That is the promise of America. It’s why millions of people move here.

For a long time, we knew that; no one questioned it. It was obvious, but it no longer is obvious and there are many who are working in the opposite direction.

Republicans must counterbalance this. They must work as hard as they can to make America fair again. Wealth, appearance, ancestry can play no role whatsoever in the eyes of the law.

That means that criminals like Jeffrey Epstein must go to jail the first time they’re caught molesting children. It means your children must have precisely the same chances of getting into college or getting a job as anyone else’s children.

It means fighting to make this a colorblind meritocracy. A colorblind meritocracy. Say it again. The alternative to that is disaster.

Slavery and Jim Crow were immoral precisely because they punished people for how they were born. Any system that punishes people for how they were born is immoral, always. Republicans must say that loudly.

Don’t get caught in pointless debates about whether or not this is a racist country. Clearly it isn’t. Prove it by making it less racist, by making it a colorblind meritocracy. That’s our promise.

Second, Republicans must defend our freedom of speech. We are not a free society without that. This is not simply a debate about the First Amendment and its limits. It’s bigger than that and more important.

If you can’t articulate something, if you’re not allowed, you can’t think it. And that’s precisely why authoritarians try to control language. They’re trying to control your mind. Republicans should lead the fight against this without shame.

Americans have the absolute right to tell the truth. This is not negotiable, nor by the way is it a theoretical concern, of interest only to intellectuals. Everything depends on it.

If you can’t think freely, you can’t solve problems. Try to build a hydro plant or fly a commercial airplane? If certain categories of thought are off limits to you, it doesn’t work. The power grid collapses, planes crash. Society degrades.

No speech means no science, no art, no civilization. Most of us were taught that this debate was settled conclusively during the Enlightenment hundreds of years ago and reason vanquished dogma. But it wasn’t settled.

The forces of superstition remain. They are stronger than ever. In fact, they are growing in strength. The Republican Party must fight them or it’s not a party worth having.

And finally, we must never forget that in the end, the Republican Party exists to serve the interests of normal people, ordinary people. Middle class families are the core of this country. They are our hope for the future — our only hope — and yet both parties have shamelessly abandoned them.

Middle-class families have no national spokesman. They have no lobby in Washington. Republicans pretend to be their champion, you know by now that they are not. Instead of improving the lives of their voters, the party feeds them a steady diet of mindless symbolic victories, partisan junk food designed to make them feel full even as they waste away.

Who cares how many Benghazi hearings we have? We’re supposed to care. Why should we?

How did Peter Strzok’s text messages become more important than saving American jobs from foreign nationals who are taking them? It is lunacy. We fall for it every time and to the extent this show has participated in it, we apologize with deepest sincerity.

Because meanwhile, as we’re talking about things that don’t matter, life for the dwindling American middle class has become steadily worse. Suddenly, there are junkies living in your park. Your nephew just died of a fentanyl overdose. And saddest of all, and who hasn’t thought this, you’ve realized that your children will never be as successful as you are. The American Dream died with your generation.

As all of this happened, Democrats laughed because it served their interests. Republicans basically ignored it and that cannot continue. The only political movements that endure are the ones that make their voters stronger.

So how does this change? Can republican officeholders change their party? Yes, they can. We just have to make them. These are not by and large, evil people. Mike Braun is not an evil person.

Despite the way they talk, they’re not secretly working for the other side. Most of them are just empty, sad people, and politics is the way they fill the yawning void inside where a personal life should be — they are pleasers. They’re searching for the approval of strangers.

Our job is to give them clear instructions about what we want. We do that by voting and by making noise. They will not lead us, we know that now. They’ve refused to.

We have to lead and when we do, they will follow.

Donald Trump will lose in November because he failed to walk his big talk

Tucker Carlson: Trump could well lose the election – he must defend America’s institutions

The president has lost ground during the coronavirus pandemic and mass riots when his strengths should have been highlighted

Not many people are saying it out loud on the right, but the fact is that President Trump could well lose this election. In fact, unless fundamental facts change soon, it could be tough for him to be reelected.

If the president does lose, that would mean that just a few months from now, Joe Biden would become the president. The United States government would fall under the control of the radicals who control Joe Biden, and they will remake the country.

Now, we’re fully aware that virtually nobody watching this show wants to hear that, but it’s true and key people around the president know that it’s true. They’ve seen the numbers. They’re concerned.

At some point in the future, historians will marvel at the fact that the president lost ground during a pandemic and then during mass riots. Both crises should have highlighted his strengths. They were naturals for him.

Alone among national leaders, Donald Trump warned Americans for decades about China and the perils of globalization. Everything about the Wuhan coronavirus proved Donald Trump right. China really is our main global adversary. The Chinese government really does want to take over the world.

Meanwhile, the fact that we sent our manufacturing base abroad really has weakened us badly. The most powerful nation on Earth no longer makes antibiotics. Maybe we’re not as powerful as we think.

All of that is very obvious now after the pandemic, but Donald Trump called it. You’d think voters would reward him for that. You’d think the riots would have increased their support for him.

An awful lot of people voted for Donald Trump precisely to avoid a moment like the one we’re now in. None of this arrived suddenly; we saw it coming. Social cohesion in America has been eroding for decades. People sensed that; it made them nervous. It should make them nervous.

Donald Trump seemed like insurance against the consequences of that. The core appeal of Trump was, if things ever started to fall apart, he would defend you. Yes, he was loud and crude. Most bodyguards are. Only a man like Donald Trump was tough enough to fight the creeping authoritarianism of the education cartel in corporate America.

When widespread looting and disorder arrived, the president did not act as decisively as many had hoped. He said little, he did less. Some voters felt undefended, some turned against him.

If Trump got elected, you could say what you really believed. The basic promise of America could be restored, you could live with dignity. Under Donald Trump, you wouldn’t be forced to mouth the lyrics to some repulsive little orthodoxy you hate. You could declare out loud that all lives matter because all lives do matter. God made us all. And if you can’t say that, what’s the point of living here?

Donald Trump never quite articulated any of this in a precise way. He’s not an intellectual or an ideologue. But it was obvious, he felt it strongly. Trump’s gut-level instincts were on the side of order and tradition and stability, and they still are.

And yet, when widespread looting and disorder arrived, the president did not act as decisively as many had hoped. He said little, he did less. Some voters felt undefended, some turned against him.

Why did this happen? Well, there are many reasons.

Trump was exhausted, for one thing. after three years of defending himself against “Russiagate,” the most elaborate and effective hoax in American history, and his staff did not do very much to help. Some of them were actively disloyal. Most were just confused. They definitely were not prepared for Chinese viruses or burning cities.

But the administration’s main problems were conceptual. Few seemed to understand what was really happening. Their first mistake was forgetting the primary rule of Washington: In an election year, everything that happens is about the election. There are no exceptions to that rule.

Washington is a political city; it’s run by politicians. If the Chinese Navy sailed up the Potomac in the fall of an election year, the first thing most people in D.C. would wonder is, how is that going to affect turnout? That’s who they are. It’s how they think.

So only the naive were surprised when Democratic governors immediately used the coronavirus quarantines to punish people who didn’t vote for them. Christian churches and small businesses were locked down. Weed shops and abortion clinics stayed open.

Most Trump voters seemed not to notice. They accepted the restrictions without question. This was a health crisis, and they wanted to do the right thing. So they obeyed. They cowered in their homes, and that’s exactly where Democratic leaders wanted them — cut off from one another, atomized and alone.

The few conservatives who tried to organize resistance to the lockdowns were indicted or threatened with arrest. None of this had anything to do with public health, of course. It was electoral politics, an especially brutal form of it.

Republican leaders meanwhile, were remarkably slow to catch on to what was happening. Some of them aren’t very bright, but most just couldn’t imagine anyone acting with that level of cynicism and ruthlessness. Their good faith made them vulnerable to their opponent’s lies. They were used.

In the days after George Floyd died, these same trends accelerated dramatically. It all happened so fast that it seemed like chaos at the time. But it wasn’t chaos. There was design just beneath the surface.

Consider the targets that the mob chose. Law enforcement, obviously, but not all law enforcement. Local police departments must be eliminated, they said, but the FBI is just fine — and that was telling.

Then they claimed that capitalism was the enemy, but only certain kinds of capitalism. The mob burned independent businesses to the ground by the score. They didn’t say a word about those businesses’ digital competitors, Google and Apple and Amazon. All of those companies were funding the destruction.

Then the mob told us that traditional Christianity was racist. They desecrated churches in the name of avenging slavery. And yet Antifa did not touch a single mosque, despite the fact that historians say Mohammed owned slaves.

As all of this progressed, Democrats continued their lectures about gun control, as they always do, but they ignored the rifles in the hands of their own supporters in downtown Seattle. The real threat, they told us, was rural Americans with their AR-15s. We better get the FBI on that — arrest more farmers.

In other words, what looked like protests were in fact highly effective attacks on Donald Trump’s voters, his power base. Few in Washington clearly appreciated this, at least on the right. If they had, they would have told the country what was really happening. No, this is not about George Floyd. It’s not about police brutality. It’s a power grab by violent extremists. But they didn’t understand that.

So weeks into the rioting, the social media accounts of the White House were still producing ham-handed posts about Juneteenth. No one was convinced by them, no one was reassured. Instead, many voters were becoming increasingly agitated by the lawlessness they saw all around them. Who is going to protect us from this, they wondered. The social media account did nothing to answer that question.

We want to play for you two pieces of tape that help illustrate what life is like for many Americans right now. Neither one of these shows graphic violence. We can easily find tape that does show it — there’s an awful lot of it out there.

But what we’re going to play instead for you is, in some ways, maybe more insidious than assault. What you’ll hear is neglect, and neglect is itself a form of violence. The first tape is from a small town, Fredericksburg, Va. It’s a 911 call recorded earlier this month.

A woman called Tara Durant took her young daughter on errands downtown. As the two tried to drive home, a mob surrounded their vehicle and blocked it from moving. Several people jumped on Durant’s car and screamed obscenities at her child. Terrified, Tara Durant called 911. And here’s the response she got:

Tara Durant: They are on my car, alright? They are my car right now!

911 Dispatcher: But we would suggest you slowly drive through the area. Don’t hit anyone with your vehicle.

Durant: I can’t. I cannot get out of here, okay?

Dispatcher: Please be patient. I’ll let the officers know, okay?

Durant: Are you serious? You guys have not —

Dispatcher: We can’t do anything, ma’am. The city told us that this is a sanctioned event.

Durant: Get out of my car.! You know, this is going to get dangerous. I’ve got a kid here.

Dispatcher: Yes, ma’am. We would suggest you call up city hall to let them know about your frustrations.

Durant: Get out of the way! Get out of the way! This is getting scary. They’re on my car! They’re on my car! And I’ve got a little girl in the car crying. Are you kidding me?

“They’re on my car! They are on my car!” “Ma’am,” comes the reply. “We would suggest you call up city hall to let them know about your frustrations.” Those are verbatim quotes. It’s hard to listen to that tape without feeling emotional.

A woman and her child were terrorized by a violent mob, and then they were intentionally abandoned by the state that has promised to protect them. It was the ultimate betrayal of citizenship.

You should know that the mayor of Fredericksburg, Virginia, a woman called Mary Katherine Greenlaw later apologized. But Greenlaw did not apologize to Tara Durant or her young daughter. The mayor apologized to the mob.

Police had tried to disperse them while they were rioting. “I am personally sorry,” Mayor Greenlaw slobbered. “I want to apologize to those who went through this fearful experience.”

Again to be crystal clear, Mayor Greenlaw said that to the rioters, not to the citizens she had cruelly abandoned. All of that happened in a little town of 25,000 people. It’s happening in so many American towns right now.

Here’s what’s happening in our cities. This is a recent video from New York. You will be forgiven if you don’t recognize it. It looks like a foreign country.

As you watch, notice how the police respond to gunfire being fired in the open. The squad car just rolls on through. The cops don’t even slow down. They’ve been told not to. They don’t try to enforce the law. They can’t enforce the law.

Keep in mind, decent people live in that neighborhood. Decent people live in every American neighborhood. How would you feel if you lived there? You’d be very afraid. You’d feel like things were falling apart. More than anything else, you would want someone to restore order. You’d want a leader to take back your neighborhood from armed children because armed children are far more threatening than even the worst rogue cop — always.

But local leaders are not doing that. They are not restoring order. They’re ignoring the suffering of their people.

So, what is the White House doing about this? Well, the president announced two days ago that anyone who topples a statue on federal property will face 10 years in prison. That is a welcome start.

What we’re living through right now, despite what people have told, you is not a local problem. This is a national crisis. The riots are designed to produce a national result — the destruction of our system of government and the removal of Donald Trump.

People expect a president to respond to a moment like this, to fix it, and they have a right to expect that. The president runs the country. If the rioters were Saudi nationals, it would be very clear that there was nothing local about what we’re watching. We would understand immediately that it is terrorism.

The president would give a primetime address. Within hours, the feds would be hunting these people down and arresting them. If the rioters were white supremacist, they’d already be in prison facing life.

So the question is, why isn’t the Justice Department responding like this? That’s not clear. Some blame the White House Counsel’s Office. They say it is dominated by Bush partisans who are hostile to Trump. We don’t know if that’s true. If it is true, there’s an easy solution to it. Just ignore their counsel.

Send the lawyers to the basement until November and have them reorganize the card catalog, or read Reader’s Digest from the 70s. Only a fool lets lawyers make critical decisions anyway. They’re not wise. If they were, they probably wouldn’t be lawyers.

Others say career bureaucrats at DOJ or federal prosecutors in the states are dragging their feet. The attorney general, Bill Barr, says he is overseeing 500 separate investigations into rioters. Good for him. Presumably one of them is into the destruction of the Albert Pike statue in Washington. It took place last Friday. It was on live television. So far, no one has been arrested for it.

It would change the course of this country’s future if the Justice Department rounded up the leaders of Antifa tomorrow, along with every single person caught on camera torching a building, destroying a monument, defacing a church and put them all in shackles and then frog march them in front of cameras like MS-13 and call them what they actually are — domestic terrorists. Not protesters, not civil rights activists, not CNN contributors, but domestic terrorists. That would be their new government-approved title.

Once they’re charged, it’s official. In fact, they are literally, as a factual matter, accused terrorists. And that would change minds right away. The people destroying this country are criminals. Few are brave enough to call them that. So, naturally, their popularity grows. Everyone supports protesters. This is America, we believe in protest.

But watch what happens when you start calling them what they really are. Most people don’t like terrorists. Terrorists will never be popular, even among Democratic voters. So charge them for the crimes they’ve committed and call them what they are.

Right now, the opposite is happening. The terrorists are more popular than the president of the United States. And not just more popular than Donald Trump personally, but more popular than the system he represents and administers. And it’s obvious why. Our system is weak. It refuses to defend itself.

Mayors let new countries sprout in the middle of their cities. Our leaders act like laws are irrelevant. Everyone watches this happen. It’s a potentially fatal problem.

Weak institutions die. Citizens develop contempt for them, and then they get overthrown. The same is true by the way, for heads of state. When you refuse to fight for the system you run, you’re done. Spend an hour on Google and see if you can find a single leader in the history of the world who stayed in power after failing to quell a rebellion. You can’t.

The saddest part of all of this is that our system is very much worth saving. It administers justice more fairly than any system in the world. If we want to keep that system, we have to use that system and that means enforcing America’s laws with certainty, enforcing them right now, at the moment of greatest peril.

If we don’t do it now, we never will do it. Ignore a law long enough and it becomes unenforceable. You’d be shocked if you got pulled over for doing 58 in a 55 mile an hour zone, obviously.

Antifa’s leaders would be shocked if they were arrested for destroying a statue of Abraham Lincoln. Just a month ago destroying statues was a felony. Now, it’s allowed. What will we allow a month from now? What will we allow by November?

The point is, things change fast, and that includes social standards. They change very quickly, too. Just a few weeks ago, defunding the police sounded like a crackpot idea. Now, it’s happening. Millions of Americans support it.

Many Republican officeholders haven’t thought very deeply about why this is. Even now, you’ll see them grin at the latest insanity from the left. “Can you believe this? They’ve gone too far this time,” they’ll say. “There’s going to be a backlash.”

Really? When exactly will that backlash arrive? Because the opposite seems to be happening. What seemed awful the other day is normal now. It turns out that if you don’t bother to explain precisely why certain ideas are bad — if you don’t defend your own worldview — then you lose.

Bad ideas spread. They quickly congeal into conventional wisdom, and then you’re done. This is especially true right now, when everything in American life is up for grabs. The lockdowns shuffled the deck completely.

Four months ago, you’d assume you were going to spend the next 20 years going into an office somewhere. Now, you’re working from your couch. You’re starting to consider maybe moving to Bozeman, and why wouldn’t you? And while we’re at it, what else should we do differently?

Normal people are starting to think like this. Once big things start changing, they tend to change more quickly than we expect. All of this means, this is precisely the time, right now, to defend the institutions that we desperately need to keep in this country.

Those institutions include the nuclear family, our freedom of speech, small independent businesses, absolute colorblindness under the law, the noble tradition of nonviolent protests. Those are the things that make us proud to be Americans. Those are the things that make America a place worth living in.

We need to defend these things with everything we have, all of us must defend them, including the president. That is his hope of reelection.

For the rest of us, it’s our only hope as a country.

Tucker Carlson calls Robin DiAngelo’s book, “White Fragility,” “an utterly ridiculous book,” “poisonous garbage,” and “a crackpot race tract”

“White Fragility” is a wildly popular book

Below is a transcript of a segment from “Tucker Carlson Tonight” appearing June 24, 2020.

Tucker Carlson: Well the best-selling book in the country right now, in case you haven’t checked the rankings, is not a spy thriller. It’s not a young adult fantasy novel. It’s a short political book. It’s called “”White Fragility”.” Soon it may be required reading at your children’s school. It may be already. So what does it say?

We read it and we have a report after the break.


The best-selling book in America last week wasn’t anything by JK Rowling. It was a tract called “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo. It’s a hit and not a small hit. “White Fragility” has sold so many copies that the paperback edition is out of stock on Amazon. Schools and companies across the country are ordering it in bulk.

Deloitte is pushing it, so is NBC and Harvard Business School. The CEO of American Airlines was recently photographed reading the book. This fall “White Fragility” is likely to be required reading at your children’s school. You may soon be told to study it on a corporate retreat. So it’s worth knowing what it is, what it’s about exactly.

We read the book and we’ll sum it up for you in four words: white people are racist. Not just racist white people: all white people, whether they’re six years old or a hundred years old. All of them are by definition racist. They are racist because they are white. Only white people are racist. No one else is.

Book says you’re racist no matter who you are

Robin DiAngelo tells people this for a living. She’s a professional anti-racist educator. She shuttles between schools and boardrooms telling people if their DNA make them evil. She makes big money doing this. Last year, for example, the University of Kentucky, a publicly funded University, paid DiAngelo twelve thousand dollars for two hours of this message. The school could have used that money to give poor black kids an education but instead they handed the cash‒—that’s more than a third of what the average American makes in a year‒—to a not very bright white lady to tell them they’re racists. In other words, Robin DiAngelo has a very good gig.

Author makes money telling people they are racist

Of course, not everyone likes her message. Telling people they’re racists is fine if they actually are racists. But what if they’re not racists, and most people in this country are not.

Well, let’s see, how would you like it if someone called you a child molester or a wife beater? You probably wouldn’t like it very much. In fact you could lose your job for that; you could lose your friends; you could even lose your family. You might feel pretty threatened by that accusation.

Ah-ha, says Robin DiAngelo, that means you’re guilty of racism! Feeling threatened is definitive proof that you’re a racist. You’re defensive: you’ve got white fragility, hence the title of the book.

Feeling threatened is proof that you are racist

By the way, if you’re not threatened when someone publicly denounces you as racist, that is also proof that you’re a racist. Either way, my friend, you are a racist. Logic is clearly not Robin DiAngelo’s specialty. Neither is literate writing or clear thinking. She is a complete and total idiot. That’s one thing you learn by the end of her book.

And yet our leaders treat Robin DiAngelo with great respect. They think she’s a genius. That tells you everything about them and also the moment we’re living in. The dumbest people suddenly have the most power.

In the book, DiAngelo goes on to make a number of other ridiculously false claims. laughably false. Some of them are so obviously the opposite of what is actually true you’ve got to imagine she was grinning as she typed the manuscript. “Will they believe this?” Yes.

White Fragility makes ridiculously false claims

In America, DiAngelo writes, quote, “we are socially penalized for challenging racism.” Really? Where, and how? The country the rest of us live in the United States of America hates racism. Hating racism is effectively our national religion. Every organization we have is organized to stamp it out. Commit racism and the FBI shows up.

We are socially penalized for challenging racism

Come on, it’s just too absurd to be real. But Robin DiAngelo isn’t really trying to convince anyone. The real point of her book is to defeat and demoralize you. DiAngelo claims that everything you really want, everything that people of every color really want, in every society in the world, is a sign of white racism.

The point of the book is to demoralize you

You want to live in a safe neighborhood? You’re racist for that. You want to send your kids to a decent school? You’re a racist for that. All of your dreams are racism and the only way to atone for this racism is to give up those dreams, to abandon your aspirations, and make sure that your family lives a much worse life.

For white people, DiAngelo writes, quote, “discomfort is necessary and important.” Needless to say, DiAngelo does not address the millions of white people in this country who already live in perpetual discomfort because they are impoverished. She doesn’t mention the entire counties in rural America where virtually no adult man has a full-time job, where there are no dentists, because no one can afford to go to the dentist.

White comfort maintains the racial status quo, so discomfort is necessary and important

Robin DiAngelo has never met people like that. No doubt she would hate them if she did. Instead DiAngelo’s book is effectively addressed to entitled urban professionals as silly and frivolous and self-loathing as she is: her friends.

In DiAngelo’s world, economics play no role in anything. They don’t matter. Everyone she knows has a high-status job and a secure job. They’re not worried about unemployment. They don’t care about income inequality. They’re on the right side of it. These aren’t problems for them.

Elite author oblivious to country’s real problems

Remember, DiAngelo herself gets paid $6,000 an hour to talk. She’s not concerned about paying the rent. And in fact, DiAngelo explains at one point, worrying about economic injustice is just another symptom of, brace yourself here, racism, of “White Fragility.” Get it? Maybe you’re starting to understand why corporate America absolutely loves this book. Why? Because Robin DiAngelo absolves them of their crimes.

Apple and the health insurers and the credit card companies get off scot-free because the real problem Robin DiAngelo tells them is white racism, and what a relief that is for them to learn. 6,000 dollars an hour is a small indulgence to pay for that kind of forgiveness. Thank you, Reverend DiAngelo, we appreciate the house call.

In sum, “White Fragility” is an utterly ridiculous book. It’s ironies are so profound they make your head spin. A book about racism that is far more aggressively racist than anything Louis Farrakhan has ever written. A book that claims to side with black people but instead patronizes them and demeans them like their children. A book about systemic injustice that is in fact itself a sly defense of the very people perpetuating the worst injustices in our society.

Book props up worst offenders of injustices

Everything about “White Fragility” is poisonous garbage, and it’s not an overstatement. And that will be obvious to you the second your kids bring it home from school. Or the moment the corporate HR director in your office lays a copy of it on your desk. And you should say so when that happens.

Don’t be passive. Speak up loudly. It is your right to disagree with Robin DiAngelo. What she says is wrong, it’s crazy, it’s destructive, and it ferments hatred.

We are Americans. We’re allowed to do that. The second we are forced to accept the premises of “White Fragility,” we won’t be Americans.

By the way, the main reason that a crackpot race tract like “White Fragility” and many books like it spread so rapidly in this country is because of American higher education. It is filled with rot and that rot spreads. Even now our public K through 12 schools are woke propaganda mills promoting racial division and hatred of the country that makes them possible.

Effort to turn schools into woke propaganda mills
