Left-wing author Naomi Wolf sounds alarm to Tucker Carlson: America becoming ‘totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes’

As Fox News host Tucker Carlson told left-wing author Naomi Wolf on his program Monday night, there isn’t a whole lot they likely agree on — but Wolf’s alarming observation that America is turning into a “totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes” amid our government’s coronavirus lockdowns is certainly an exception.

What’s the background?

Just days after last November’s presidential election, Wolf famously tweeted that had she known that now-President Joe Biden was open to “terrifying” lockdowns that “won’t ever end because elites love it,” she never would’ve voted for the Democrat:

But Wolf told Carlson that she’s been writing about governmental overreach for a long time, and in fact penned a 2007 book on the subject — “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot” — that can apply to the “terrible crisis that we’re in” right now.

What else did she say?

Wolf, an adviser for former President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, said America is quickly “moving into a coup situation, a police state situation” as elected officials continue to assume “unprecedented” emergency powers under the “guise of a real medical pandemic.”

“That’s not a partisan thing; that transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on,” she told Carlson. “That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.”

Wolf observed that the “state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies … which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement.” She noted that she can be fined $15,000 a day in New York state for gathering more people in one space than COVID-19 restrictions allow.

Noting that her historical studies have shown her that “would-be tyrants always take” the same 10 steps “when they want to close down a democracy,” Wolf told Carlson she believes the United States is “absolutely moving into what I call step 10,” which is the “suspension of the rule of law — that’s when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There’s no way around it.”

Wolf added that she’s interviewed “many patriots from all backgrounds and all walks of life who are horrified” by this dangerous shift, but the deep divisions in our country make it difficult to stand united against the march toward greater governmental control.

She added that she’s seeing “autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level … creating a kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of Italian fascism in the ’20s” — and that they’re “using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights: rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, and all of the rights that our Constitution guarantees.”

‘No one gives up emergency powers willingly’

Wolf also offered some sobering predictions, noting that her studies have shown that “no one gives up emergency powers willingly” and that they “always drag it on and drag it on.” She also said that “nowhere in the Constitution does it say” that our rights “can be suspended if there’s a bad disease. We have lived through typhus, cholera, small pox, HIV, tuberculosis, polio, the Spanish Flu … we’ve lived through an attack on our soil. Never have there been months and months and months of emergency powers when we weren’t actually fighting a war.”

She sounded the alarm concerning the “completely unprecedented” response to COVID-19, saying that “lockdowns have never been done before in free societies, and really, we’re turning into a version of a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes.”

“I really hope we wake up quickly,” Wolf concluded, “because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”

Carlson wondered, too, if the powers that be want to keep Americans “divided so we won’t have conversations like this.”

AOC Daily beast editor Gaffe Googly eyes Intelwars Tucker Carlson

Daily Beast editor accuses Tucker Carlson of adding ‘googly eyes’ to AOC photo — then admits he was wrong

A Daily Beast contributing editor was recently forced to apologize on Twitter after his attempted attack on Fox News host Tucker Carlson ended up landing squarely on progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

What happened?

Justin Baragona, a frequent critic of conservatives, accused Carlson’s producers Wednesday of doctoring an image of Ocasio-Cortez to make the Democratic congresswoman’s eyes looking abnormally large.

Without fact-checking — or thinking through what the ramifications would be if he were wrong — Baragona posted a screenshot of the show to Twitter, saying, “So it appears Tucker’s producers added googly eyes to AOC in this image.”

He was obviously hoping to catch Carlson in the act, but the problem was, he was wrong and the image was real. Consequently, all he ended up doing was insulting Ocasio-Cortez’s appearance. After that was pointed out to him, he owned up to the embarrassing gaffe on Twitter.

“Taking down this tweet as the image of AOC has been out there since at least May 2018,” he wrote. “Anyway, I’ll take the [loss] and the addition to the list [Siraj Hashmi].”

Hashmi is a journalist who works for the Washington Examiner and is known for creating “The List,” a daily power ranking of people who need to have their phones taken away.

In a follow-up tweet, Baragona employed some more apologetic self-loathing, saying, “Every day you log onto Twitter, you hope to get through it without being it. Tonight, I was it. And I absolutely deserved to be.”

“Word of advice — if you don’t want to be IT, make sure you don’t send out factually inaccurate tweets that can be easily verified and debunked,” he added.

What else?

As was to be expected, Baragona was raked on the social media platform over his mistake.
“Its cool how when you’re a journalist you can just say s**t,” one commenter wrote.
Others pushed back on those defending his gaffe as an honest mistake.
“It’s not really an honest mistake. He just naturally assumed the worst about Tucker, and from that assumption, assumed they added the eyes. There’s nothing ‘honest’ about that,” one person wrote.
Another added: “He only took it down because he got called out for it. It would probably still be up had no one called him on it. There is nothing honest here.”
Aj louderback Covid-19 tests illegal immigrants Intelwars Joe biden ice President joe biden Tucker Carlson

Texas sheriff says President Biden is releasing ‘thousands’ of illegal aliens into the US without COVID-19 tests

Sheriff A.J. Louderback of Jackson County, Texas, said this week that President Joe Biden is releasing illegal immigrants into the U.S. without first subjecting them to a COVID-19 test.

Louderback, who appeared Tuesday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” said that it was “absolutely true” that the Biden administration is engaging in such risky behaviors and “essentially” defunding Immigration and Customs Enforcement via memo.

What are the details?

Carlson began his monologue by saying, “Tonight we learned that the Joe Biden administration is releasing thousands of foreign nationals living here illegally into American neighborhoods without bothering to test them for the coronavirus.”

He then referred to a video clip featuring an exchange between White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Fox News reporter Kristin Fisher.

In the clip, Fisher can be heard asking Psaki, “What could be done to provide COVID testing to migrants at the border? Because right now, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection is saying they’re having to catch and release some migrants without giving them any kind of COVID test before they’re entering the community. So what is being done? What could be done?”

Psaki responded, “Are you suggesting they’re letting people in across the border without testing them? Or, tell me a little bit more about—”

Cutting Psaki off, Fisher continued, “They’re being released, they’re having to [release them] because of the executive order that the president signed earlier this week.”

Clearly confused, Psaki responded, “Which executive [order]? Which one?”

‘Releasing people without knowing’ if they’re infected

Carlson stopped the video and quipped, “Yeah, which one? COVID-infected illegal aliens released into the United States. Whatever. It’s not like there’s a pandemic. The press secretary didn’t care enough to answer the question.”

He then said that he’d spoken with Leon Wilmot, sheriff of Yuma County, Arizona, and Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, both of whom reportedly said that illegals were being released without testing.

“[W]e’re releasing people without knowing [if they’re infected], which puts the public at risk,” Judd, along with Wilmot, told the show.

According to the Daily Mail, “Customs and Border Protection announced that some migrants were being released into the United States to await immigration hearings last week, but did not specify how many. The agency cited overflowing detainment facilities as the reason for the releases.”

On Tuesday, the New York Times also reported that about 1,000 migrants were released in Texas, with hundreds more in California — but Customs and Border Protection said nothing about whether the released migrants were tested for COVID-19 before their release.

The Daily Mail notes that at least one facility in Laredo, Texas, reported being unable to administer COVID-19 tests because “they had run out.”

‘It’s absolutely true’

Later inviting Louderback to speak, Carlson asked if such reports of were true.

Louderback responded, “It’s absolutely true.”

“[A] memo that I received this week, it’s essentially a ‘defunding ICE by memo’ … a memorandum that was sent out by [then-acting Homeland Security Secretary] David Pekoske on Jan. 20 or 21. So this is a particularly devastating document for Texans and Americans here in the United States. The message really has been sent, when I read it first and looked at it, it’s a message to the world, you can come here illegally, you could commit crimes here against Americans and remain here illegally.”

Carlson responded, “But of all things, the coronavirus, since Americans are now being told in the near future, we may not be allowed to fly on airplanes domestically without being proven free of the virus without a certificate that says we’ve been tested in our negative, how in a country like that, could we just forget to test illegal aliens for the virus before releasing them? Like how did that happen? Do you know?”

Louderback said he did not know how such a thing could happen, but he believes that it’s not entirely unexpected.

“[W]e walked this path and from 2008 to 2016,” he responded. “This program that was released by memorandum is very similar to the Priority Enforcement Program in 2014 and 2015, where people were able to commit crimes against Americans. The COVID issue conveniently overlooked during this time. So you know, I struggle for a thought process, like many Americans and Texans, on how the administration can conduct themselves in this manner, and promote a lawless attitude here where people are going to get hurt, seriously injured, killed, and people vowed to stay here, which is unbelievable. Yet here we sit with this situation.”

Louderback said that this particular situation would, in his estimation, cause “irreparable harm.”

“Every police officer in the United States should be extremely concerned about the attitude, the lawlessness, the complete abject removal of law,” he added. “We have a nullification of the law here going on. It’s not we’re not gonna … enforce anything, we’re going to allow our CBP, our ICE officers, USCIS, all three were affected by this memo, which effectively guts the IMA.”

He warned, “The public has no idea, the strength of a memorandum that’s been filed here in the United States by this administration.”

Bank of America Capitol riots Customer consent Intelwars Private information Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson: Bank of America secretly handed over private customer data to the FBI following Capitol riot

Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed in a bombshell report Thursday night that Bank of America, the nation’s second-largest bank serving more than 60 million people, secretly surveilled customers considered to be persons of interest following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol and handed over their private information to federal investigators.

Carlson reported on air Thursday that his team exclusively obtained evidence that “in the days after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, Bank of America went through its own customers’ financial and transaction records” at the request of federal law enforcement investigators, searching its databases for “people who fit a specific profile.”

The profile went as follows, according to Carlson: “1. Customers confirmed as transacting, either through bank account, debit card, or credit card, purchases in Washington, D.C. between 1/5 and 1/6. 2. Purchases made for Hotel/Airbnb RSVPs in DC, VA, and MD after 1/6. 3. Any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between 1/7 and their upcoming suspected stay in D.C. area around Inauguration Day. 4. Airline related purchases since 1/6.”

During the probe, Bank of America eventually identified 211 customers who met the “thresholds of interest” and proceeded to turn those customers’ information over to investigators without their knowledge or consent.

Tucker: Bank of America secretly turned over customer data to FBI

FBI investigators reportedly used the information to interview at least one of the unsuspecting customers, although that person was eventually cleared of any wrongdoing.

“Imagine if you were that person,” said Carlson. “The FBI hauls you in for questioning in a terror investigation, not because you’ve done anything suspicious, but because you bought plane tickets and visited your country’s capital. Now they’re sweating you because your bank, which you trust with your most private information, has ratted you out without your knowledge. Because Bank of America did that, you are being treated like a member of Al Qaeda.”

When Carlson’s team reached out to Bank of America, the bank responded without denying the claim.

“We don’t comment on our communications with law enforcement. All banks have responsibilities under federal law to cooperate with law enforcement inquiries in full compliance with the law,” the statement reportedly said.

A Bank of America spokesperson gave the same exact response to the Washington Examiner.

Carlson suggested that while Bank of America’s actions are certainly troubling, they may also be illegal. A relevant law on the books is 12 U.S.C. 3403, a federal law that protects the confidentiality of financial records. Though the law does appear to allow banks to tip off government authorities to information that “may be relevant to a possible violation of any statute or regulation.”

The question becomes, what constitutes information relevant to a crime?

“Does buying a muffin in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 5 make you a potential domestic extremist?” Carlson asked. “According to Bank of America, yes. Yes, it does.”

deportations ICE Illegal Immigration immigration Intelwars Joe Biden Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson reveals email sent to ICE officers after Biden’s deportation order: ‘Release them all, immediately’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed Friday that his team exclusively obtained an email showing how Immigration and Customs Enforcement was directed to carry out one of President Joe Biden’s executive orders on immigration.

What’s the background?

After entering office on Wednesday, Biden signed numerous executive orders, many of which reversed the policies of his predecessor, now-former President Donald Trump.

One of the executive orders enacted “a 100-day pause on deportations for some undocumented immigrants,” according to the Texas Tribune.

More from the Texas Tribune:

The pause in deportations, which begins Friday, is part of a review and reset of enforcement policies within Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agencies as the Biden administration “develops its final priorities,” according to a DHS statement.

The moratorium applies to “certain noncitizens ordered deported to ensure we have a fair and effective immigration enforcement system focused on protecting national security, border security, and public safety” according to the DHS. That category excludes any immigrant who is “suspected of terrorism or espionage, or otherwise poses a danger to the national security of the United States,” those who entered after Nov. 1 and those who have voluntarily waived any rights to remain in the country, according to a DHS memo.

What did the email say?

Carlson said that his team obtained an internal email sent to ICE officers in Texas.

The email read, “As of midnight tonight, stop all removals. This includes Mexican bus runs, charter flights and commercial removals (until further notice) … all cases are to be considered [no significant likelihood of removal in foreseeable future].”

“Release them all, immediately. No sponsor available is not acceptable any longer,” the message added.

According to Carlson, the directive is the “result of the complete chaos” that resulted from Biden’s sweeping executive order.

The official who sent the email noted that he was just “the messenger” explaining the directive. In other words, It wasn’t his idea. It was Joe Biden’s. Now, this email was news to us. The memorandum from the Biden administration to halt deportations did not call for people here illegally to be released from detention. So we made some calls, and we learned that the Department of Homeland Security is currently hammering out how to enact the memorandum. It does not specifically call for the instant release of all migrants in detention.

So what was this memo about? Just the result of the complete chaos that resulted when the incoming administration changed a policy this big on its first day without explaining what it means.

EXCLUSIVE: Tucker obtains ‘shocking’ internal email sent to ICE officers

As TheBlaze reported, Biden is expected to introduce comprehensive immigration reform within the beginning months of his administration in a massive package that will include a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal immigrants.

Biden is also expected to reverse or roll back most of Trump’s immigration policies.

Antifa Black Lives Matter Intelwars Jason Whitlock kkk Tucker Carlson watch White supremacy allegation

Jason Whitlock tells Tucker Carlson: ‘I compare Black Lives Matter to the KKK. I really do.’

Conservative journalist Jason Whitlock said Wednesday that he likens Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan — and that BLM and Antifa are the “enforcement arm of the Democratic Party.”

What are the details?

Whitlock made his statements during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, who had just noted that Democrats apparently have abandoned the faith-based opposition to racism espoused by the likes of Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement and instead seem intent on enforcing the right way of thinking through power and intimidation.

Carlson then asked Whitlock what he compares Black Lives Matter to, given that it’s become an influential sociopolitical force.

“Well, I compare Black Lives Matter to the KKK. I really do,” Whitlock replied. “And some people don’t understand it, but if you go back to the 1860s, after the Emancipation Proclamation, the KKK was started, and it was the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. And what’s the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party right now? Black Lives Matter and Antifa. They will come to your home and violate your home, try to intimidate the people in your home if they disagree with you politically.”

He continued: “Black Lives Matter [is] a Marxist organization. Marxism is hostile toward religion; that’s why I’m glad you went there today. These are atheist values being expressed from our leaders, demonizing individual citizens here in America, branding them as white supremacists … because we disagree with their opinion about something.”

Whitlock added that “this is lunacy, and it’s dangerous.”

Anything else?

Whitlock’s entire interview with Carlson is worth watching.

In it he also said that black people are “being fooled” into believing that the leftist, Democratic movement to blot out white supremacy and racism by force has black people’s best interests in mind. Instead, Whitlock warned fellow black Americans that the left will be coming for them also.

“It’s happened to me, I’m black!” he told Carlson, adding, “But because I express conservative values — conservative, non-political values — I’m seen as a friend to white supremacists.”

Whitlock even said that others have called him a white supremacist as well and added that leftists view all those who disagree with them as white supremacists.

democratic party Fox News Gender inclusive Gender language Intelwars Tucker Carlson Tulsi Gabbard

Tulsi Gabbard torches her own party for ‘gender-inclusive’ agenda: ‘Defies basic established science’

Democrat Tulsi Gabbard trashed her own party on Monday over the Democratic Party’s new push for a genderless agenda in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Gabbard was a member of the House until Sunday. She did not seek re-election after running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

What’s the background?

As TheBlaze reported, Democrats unveiled proposed changes for the House rules last week, which included eliminating “gendered” language from the rules in exchange for “gender-inclusive” language.

According to House Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-Mass.), “changing pronouns and familial relationships” in the official House rules is necessary in order to “honor all gender identities.”

The genderless agenda became the focus of mockery after Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) ended a prayer in the House chamber on Sunday by saying “amen and a-woman.”

“Amen,” the traditional prayer ending, is a Hebrew word that is completely detached from biological gender. Hebrew is an inflected language, meaning grammatical gender is built into the language. Grammatical gender, of course, is not related to biological gender.

What did Gabbard say?

Speaking with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Gabbard called the genderless agenda the “height of hypocrisy” and said it reveals how out of touch Democrats are.

“It’s the height of hypocrisy for people who claim to be the champions of rights for women to deny the very biological existence of women,” Gabbard said.

“It’s mind-blowing because it shows just how out of touch with reality and the struggles of everyday Americans people in Congress are,” Gabbard added. “It shows that, you know, their first act as as this new Congress could have been to make sure that elderly Americans are able to get the COVID vaccine … but instead of doing something that could actually help save people’s lives, they’re choosing instead to say, ‘Well, you can’t say “mother” or “father” in any of this congressional language.’ It’s astounding.”

The progressive attempt to undermine science by erasing gender amounts to “denying my existence, denying the existence of of biological women,” Gabbard said.

“It defies common sense; it defies basic established science. It just doesn’t make any sense,” she explained.

Tulsi Gabbard rips ‘mind blowing’ House rule changes banning gendered language

Anything else?

The House approved the rule changes on Monday in a vote that went down party lines.

“We made this change for the sake of inclusion, not exclusion,” McGovern said of the language changes, the Hill reported.

Now, instead of words like “mother,” “father,” “son,” “daughter,” “himself,” “herself,” among others, the rules say “parents,” “siblings,” and “themselves.”

Chris Wallace Doctor jill biden Dr jill biden Intelwars Jill Biden Tucker Carlson

Fox’s Chris Wallace comes to Jill Biden’s defense, says no one ‘made a fuss’ about calling MLK Jr. a ‘doctor’

Fox News host Chris Wallace defended Jill Biden against critics, including some at his network, who have questioned her using the honorific “doctor” by noting that others such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have done the same despite not holding a medical degree.

What are the details?

The bizarre controversy over what to call the future first lady erupted last week when an opinion columnist called on her to drop the “doctor” before her name in an essay for the Wall Street Journal due to her lack of a medical degree. The author, Joseph Epstein, who taught for thirty years at Northwestern University, was summarily “canceled” from his associations with the school.

“There has been some criticism recently from conservatives, including some conservatives on Fox News, about the fact that first lady-to-be Jill Biden goes by the title doctor,” Wallace said during an interview with incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

“I wonder, what is the Bidens’ reaction to that, especially given the fact that so many people over the years — I think of Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King — have gone by the title doctor even though they’re not medical doctors and nobody seems to have made a fuss about that,” he continued.

“That’s exactly right, Chris,” Psaki responded after Wallace nicely teed up her answer.

“It’s a bit perplexing to me and I’m sure to millions of Americans that with thousands of people dying every day of COVID and with millions out of work that anyone would wake up in the morning and decide that the focus they need to have, the way they contribute to society that day, is to question whether or not Dr. Jill Biden, someone who is still teaching, who has a Ph.D. in education, should be called a doctor or not,” she said.

“Of course she should, as anyone who works through that challenging process of getting a Ph.D.,” she continued. “It’s a really silly, sexist, and absurd conversation that’s happening in society and I appreciate you asking me about it.”

It should be noted that in 2007, Biden earned a doctorate in education (Ed.D.) from the University of Delaware, not a Ph.D. The differences are slight, but there are differences. Essentially, while both are doctoral degrees, an Ed.D. is a professional degree meant to prepare a student for a career working in the field, while a Ph.D. in education is a technical degree meant to prepare a student for further research and teaching in the field.

What else?

Wallace’s comments were quite clearly intended as an exhortation to conservative critics, including fellow Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who last week called Biden “borderline illiterate” in a segment on his show.

“We actually read her dissertation this week, the very document that made her, quote, a doctor,” Carlson said in a monologue. “And what did we discover when we did that? … Dr. Jill needs reading glasses. Either that or she’s borderline illiterate. There are typos everywhere, including in the first graph of the introduction. Dr. Jill can’t write. She can’t really think clearly either.”

Alexandria ocasio-cortez AOC Fox News Intelwars Socialism Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson warns how Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ‘absolutely could’ become president in four years

Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained on his show Friday how far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) could ascend to the White House in the near future.

According to Carlson, if Democrats retake control of the Senate by way of winning both Georgia runoff elections — creating a 50-50 tie in the Senate, making the vice president the tie-breaking vote — their economic recovery plan for America would be disastrous for the American middle-class by further diving Americans.

Tucker: Experts have been exposed as frauds

Outlining his reasons, Carlson said Democrats would print more money, creating more inflation, and give tax breaks to the wealthy.

Inflation may crush you, but it will make the people making the decisions richer. Everyone else — regular wage earners, people living on fixed income, every middle-class retiree in the country, anyone who bothered to live like a responsible person and save money — will be in serious trouble when inflation arrives. That’s not speculation. It’s coming, and anyone who’s paying attention knows it’s coming.

If Democrats retake the Senate in January, they’ve committed to passing something called the HEROES Act. Just who are these heroes they plan to help? Not the thousands of small business owners whose lives they destroyed. No, this legislation will help rich people in the Northeast who were hurt by the Trump administration’s last tax cuts. The HEROES Act would restore the full state and local tax deduction, reversing the 2017 law that capped it at $10,000. According to the Brookings Institution, 96% of the benefits from this would go to the top quintile of earners, 57% would benefit the top 1%, and 25% would benefit the top 0.1%. In other words, it would benefit Democratic voters.

But it doesn’t stop there.

Democrats are also pushing to forgive massive amounts of student loan debt if they have control of the House, Senate, and White House, which, according to Carlson, “would disproportionately help the most privileged in America, i.e., Democratic voters.”

The Democratic Party’s economic vision is problematic, Carlson said, because it enriches the wealthy on the backs of the middle-class that “discredits” capitalism and emboldens socialists.

“They are giving capitalism a bad name because what they’re participating in is not a free, open market economy. It’s a closed game, run for their benefit and their benefit alone. Long-term, this is a disaster for all of us and not even so far in the future,” Carlson said.

Such a “volatile society” paves the way for lawmakers like Ocasio-Cortez — whom Carlson referred to as “Sandy Cortez” — to seize power.”

“In four years. for example, Sandy Cortez will be eligible to run for president. Now, you may laugh at Sandy Cortez, and you should. She’s a vacuous idiot, another rich-girl narcissist with an overheated Twitter account,” Carlson said.

“But that doesn’t mean she couldn’t win. If we keep up with this economic craziness, she absolutely could,” he added.

Is there a solution?

Aside from stopping Democrats from controlling the White House and Capitol Hill, Carlson floated the possibility of enacting a “one-time COVID fee” against corporations that have financially benefited during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Here’s another idea: Why not make the people who benefited the most from the lockdown pay for the effects of those lockdowns?” Carlson suggested, citing Amazon, Apple, Goldman Sachs, Google, Netflix, Walmart, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

“While we’re at it, why not make Harvard and Yale and Stanford and Princeton use their endowments to pay off some of the student debt they caused?” Carlson went on to say. “There’s no reason ordinary taxpayers should be on the hook for their spending.”

CNN Cnn tapes Intelwars James O'Keefe Jeff Zucker Project Veritas Tucker Carlson

Project Veritas tapes reveal CNN chief Zucker calling shots for anti-Trump network’s coverage, setting companywide political agenda

Leaked audiotapes of CNN’s 9 a.m. editorial calls published by Project Veritas reveal CNN President Jeff Zucker and other top executives and reporters at the network say in private what their coverage suggests: CNN’s editorial viewpoint is anti-Trump and directed from the top down by Zucker.

The audiotapes were obtained and released by self-styled “guerrilla journalist” James O’Keefe, who on Tuesday morning announced that Project Veritas had been secretly recording CNN’s morning call with Zucker for two months and would soon begin releasing the tapes. O’Keefe made his announcement while livestreaming CNN’s Tuesday call, at one point interrupting the call to inform Zucker of what he’d done and ask for comment.

“This is yet another investigation Project Veritas has conducted into CNN, and once again they’ve demonstrated their partisan political agenda and total disconnect with journalistic ethics,” O’Keefe said.

In response, CNN communications said that the company has referred O’Keefe’s video to law enforcement, tweeting that “legal experts” say he may have committed a felony.

Project Veritas on Tuesday published several clips from CNN’s calls, promising to release more in the coming days. The clips, which have been selectively edited to highlight certain quotes from CNN’s editorial team, show Zucker criticizing President Donald Trump’s behavior, directing CNN’s editorial team to be critical of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and show CNN general counsel David Vigilante call Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s program “the white supremacy hour.”

The audio shows Zucker guiding CNN’s editorial coverage in a way that is typically reserved for editors or an editor-in-chief, not necessarily a company president.

During one 9 a.m. call on Oct. 9, Zucker told CNN staff not to “normalize” Trump’s “erratic” behavior as the president was recovering from his bout with the coronavirus, suggesting without evidence that Trump’s medical treatment was influencing his mood and actions.

“OK, I just want to re-emphasize that, you know, I think we cannot normalize what has happened here in the last week with Trump and his behavior,” Zucker said. “And I go back to what [CNN political Director] David, David Chalian said, that this is a president who knows he’s losing, who knows he’s in trouble, is sick, maybe is on the after-effects of steroids or not. I don’t know, but he is acting erratically and desperately, and we need to, we need to not normalize that. … He is all over the place and acting erratically. And I think we need to lean into that.”

In another conference call on Oct. 16, Zucker appears to suggest to CNN staff that the network shouldn’t cover the Hunter Biden email scandal reported by the New York Post days prior, saying, “I don’t think that we should be repeating unsubstantiated smears just because the rightwing media suggests that we should.” He also dismissed reporting from conservative media on the “unmasking” of President Trump’s transition team by Obama administration officials as “completely nonsensical.” The day prior on Oct. 15, a Department of Justice probe into the unmasking scandal concluded without any charges filed.

On Nov. 10, during an apparent discussion on Trump’s refusal to concede the election and the delayed presidential transition, CNN field producer Stephanie Becker suggested that details from the 9/11 Commission Report about how the 2000 presidential election dispute hampered the presidential transition should be part of CNN’s reporting.

“On the issue of why it’s important to get the transition going right, the 9/11 report talks about one of the problems was that the trouble that was brewing that [got] lost during the transition,” Becker said. “So, if you want a good, concrete example of what happens when you don’t have a good transition, well, look at the Twin Towers.”

Zucker agreed, encouraging CNN reporters to emphasize that point.

“Yeah, so I think that’s an important point,” Zucker said. “I think it was just a little bit yesterday in terms of national security. I think it’s really important to raise again. … I would encourage folks to think about that 9/11 Commission Report and the lack of transition.”

A week later on a Nov. 17 call, following reports that Sen. Lindsey Graham had pressured Georgia election officials to discard ballots, Zucker said that CNN had made a “mistake” in that “our banners [chyrons] have been too polite, and we need to go well after Lindsey Graham.”

“There’s a ton going on. Let’s stay strong. Let’s stay newsy. Let’s stay urgent. Let’s be smart. There is a lot of news out there, and Lindsey Graham really deserves it,” he added.

According to Fox News, CNN several published several articles on Nov. 17 about Graham, including one accusing him of “crossing the line” to defend Trump.

The leaked editorial calls show Zucker having a heavy hand in influencing how CNN covers the news.

In another clip, CNN general counsel David Vigilante accused Tucker Carlson of “naked racism” and said that Fox News gives Carlson a platform to host a white supremacy hour every night on TV.

“Yeah, I was just going to say, if you’re going to talk about the story, I think it’s unavoidable that you have to talk about the naked racism of Tucker Carlson. Because that’s really what drove this anti-diversity push, you know, Trump watches Tucker Carlson’s show and then reacts. And just as sort of the white supremacy hour they have on Fox News every night, I think it’s the — you can’t disconnect the two,” Vigilante said.

It is unclear what story he was referring to, but on the night before on Sep. 7, Carlson delivered a monologue criticizing critical race theory in reaction to President Trump’s executive order halting the controversial theory’s use in diversity training for federal employees.

O’Keefe said the statements made by Zucker and other top executives on CNN’s morning calls show “they are simply not interested in being unbiased when reporting on the news.”

“Calling Tucker Carlson a racist and demanding CNN employees to attack Lindsey Graham is outrageous and unprofessional behavior,” he said.

TheBlaze reached out to CNN for comment but did not hear back before publication.

Church Citation Covid restrictions health department Intelwars Maryland Threats Tucker Carlson watch

Church cited after maskless pastor — who’s alone in building — answers door for health official. Warnings of closure, fines, jail time follow.

A Pasadena, Maryland, church was cited recently after the pastor — who was alone in the building during office hours — answered the church door without wearing a mask for a health department official, who was making an unannounced visit, the American Constitutional Rights Union said.

What are the details?

After issuing the citation, the Anne Arundel County Department of Health official told the Rev. Dennis Jackman that he would return, and if Community United Methodist Church in Pasadena was not in full compliance with COVID-19 guidance that the church would be deemed an “unsafe facility” and “closed until the state of emergency has been terminated,” the ACRU added.

The citation also warned of criminal charges and “imprisonment of up to one year, and/or a fine of up to $5,000,” the organization noted, despite the church following all county guidance for services and making an effort to ensure the safety of worshipers.

What did the ACRU have to say?

ACRU President Lori Roman took Maryland officials to task: “Within the span of a week, Governor [Larry] Hogan has signed an executive order releasing prisoners, citing COVID, and health departments across the state have been unleashed to threaten and harass pastors and churches. The entire country is watching this juxtaposition of principles and priorities.”

What did the pastor have to say?

“I was in my office alone, without a mask on, and heard someone at the locked door of the church,” Jackman told the ACRU. “I was not expecting anyone, so I went to see who was trying to get in the church. Immediately after answering the door, I went to my desk and put on my mask, but the health official seemed intent on finding something worthy of a citation.”

The pastor also appeared Tuesday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and the host said the county health department told the program that it had been receiving complaints about the congregation engaging in “hand shaking, high fives, and fist bumps” — which Carlson mockingly referred to as “illicit worship.”

Jackman told Carlson he hadn’t heard of such complaints, that the church has been taking numerous steps to keep visitors safe — and that he’s been preaching his sermons from the back of a truck in the parking lot.

Pastor given citation after anonymous complaints of ‘fist bumps’ joins ‘Tucker’

Anything else?

Jackman isn’t the first Maryland pastor to square off with local government over church services amid coronavirus restrictions.

Back in May, Stacey Shiflett — pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Dundalk — read from an “intimidating” cease-and-desist letter he said he received from Baltimore County’s Department of Health and Human Services, warning that the church “could be subject to a fine of up to $5,000” if further in-person services were held in violation of executive orders.

Well, Shiflett went right ahead and not only held a Wednesday night service for 100 attendees in the 600-capacity sanctuary, Fox News reported — but also he tore up the cease-and-desist letter in the middle of his sermon.

“Pharaoh doesn’t get to dictate to God’s people how they worship their God,” Shiflett said with a raised voice. “God’s the one that defines the parameters, God’s the one that communicates his will and his plan for his church — not Egypt.”

During that period of time, Rev. Alvin Gwynn — pastor of Friendship Baptist Church in Baltimore City — had harsh words for Democratic Baltimore Mayor Jack Young, who was keeping the city under a stay-at-home order even though Gov. Hogan said restrictions could be loosened.

“We got a mayor saying we can only worship in our parking lots, which is ridiculous,” Gwynn said.

Fox News Intelwars Sidney powell Tucker Carlson voter fraud

Tucker Carlson responds to anger over Sidney Powell segment, reveals what Trump’s own legal team told him

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday addressed the anger caused by his previous day’s reporting that attorney Sidney Powell had scoffed at his show’s request for proof of her voter fraud allegations.

What’s the background?

Trump’s legal team claimed during a press conference on Thursday that “massive fraud” occurred during the election. The attorneys claimed their evidence was so voluminous that Joe Biden’s victory would be overturned by the courts. Specifically, Powell claimed that leftist-run voting software flipped millions of votes from President Donald Trump to Biden.

However, when Carlson’s team asked for proof of those allegations, Powell allegedly became upset at Carlson.

“She never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of requests — polite requests. Not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her,” Carlson revealed. “When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they also told us Powell has never given them any evidence, either.”

“Powell did say that electronic voting is dangerous, and she’s right, but she never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another. Not one,” the Fox News host added.

What is Carlson saying now?

Carlson revealed that people close to Trump — including the president’s own legal team — told Carlson’s team that they, too have not seen the evidence that Powell and Rudy Giuliani claim exists.

“Last night in a segment about voter fraud and investigations into it, we told you about Sidney Powell, the former federal prosecutor, and her claim that roughly 7 million votes were secretly changed on election night by vote-rigged vote counting software,” Carlson began.

“Well in the last 24 hours since we did that, we’ve heard from a lot of people about that segment, including people in the White House and people close to the president. Like us, they have concluded that this election was not fair. Like us, they’re willing to believe any explanation for what happened. Like us, they have not seen a single piece of evidence showing that software changed votes,” Carlson explained.

He continued, “Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen… it might have happened. It means they haven’t seen any evidence that it happened — and by ‘they’ we are including other members of Donald Trump’s own legal team, they have not seen Powell’s evidence either, no testimony from employees inside the software companies, no damning internal documents, no copies of the software itself.”

Carlson went on to say:

So, that’s where we are. Sidney Powell came on Fox this morning and suggested we may not have to wait much longer. “I fully expect,” she says, “that we will be able to prove all of it in a court within the next two weeks.” Well, as far as we’re concerned, that is great news. If Sidney Powell can prove that technology companies switched millions of votes and stole a presidential election, she will have, almost single-handedly, uncovered the greatest crime in the history of this country, and no one will be more grateful for that than us.

What did Powell say?

The attorney told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that she “didn’t get angry with the request to provide evidence,” and claimed Carlson “was very insulting, demanding, and rude, and I told him not to contact me again, in those terms.”

Powell later said evidence of voter fraud could be released as early as this weekend.

election election fraud Intelwars Sidney powell Trump lawyer Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson? says Trump attorney Sidney Powell wouldn’t provide him with any evidence of election fraud. Powell hits back.

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson called out Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell on air recently alleging he reached out to the attorney following the Trump legal team’s press conference about election fraud asking her for direct evidence of her claims — but never received any.

In the opening monologue for his show Thursday night, Carlson said that he did not dismiss any of Powell’s claims but was genuinely interested in the evidence she might have. Powell has argued that leftist-run voting software is responsible for flipping millions of votes from President Trump to Democratic nominee Joe Biden and thus stealing the election.

However, according to Carlson, when he reached out to Powell in earnest looking for that evidence, she became angry and failed to provide any.

“She never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of requests — polite requests. Not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her,” Carlson alleged. “When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they also told us Powell has never given them any evidence, either.”

“Powell did say that electronic voting is dangerous, and she’s right, but she never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another. Not one,” Carlson added.

During the Thursday afternoon press conference, Powell suggested that George Soros along with other communist influencers around the world interfered in the U.S. election through weaknesses in Dominion Voting Systems software.

She went on to describe how “one very strong witness” told the Trump legal team how the voting software that was used in several battleground states has technological vulnerabilities, such as “backdoors that can be hooked up to the internet or a thumb drive stuck in it.”

In response to Carlson’s public criticism, Powell told the Washington Examiner’s Anthony Leonardi, “Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today,” adding, “I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far and conduct their own investigations.”

“Evidence continues to pour in, but a 5-minute television hit is not my focus now. Collecting evidence and preparing the case are my top priorities,” she continued.

Later, speaking with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, Powell claimed that when Carlson reached out to her, she sent him an affidavit and offered another witness to appear on his show.

“No, I didn’t get angry with the request to provide evidence,” Powell insisted. “In fact, I sent an affidavit to Tucker that I had not even attached to a pleading yet to help him understand the situation, and I offered him another witness who could explain the mathematics and the statistical evidence far better than I can. I’m not really a numbers person.”

“But he was very insulting, demanding, and rude, and I told him not to contact me again, in those terms,” Powell said.

President Trump’s legal team argued Thursday that their press conference amounted to an opening statement of their allegations and that the evidence they will demonstrate in court will be sufficient to overturn the election.

California Donald Trump Intelwars La Jolla Maga hat Make America Great Again private school Racism accusation Tucker Carlson watch

Head of prestigious school calls MAGA hat ‘symbol of racism and hatred’ after student wears one: ‘He will not wear it again’

The head of a prestigious private school in California called the Make America Great Again hat — the iconic symbol of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — a “symbol of racism and hatred” after a student wore one on campus.

And Gary Krahn — head of La Jolla Country Day School — wrote in an email to school staff that the student “will not wear it again,” KUSI-TV reported.

What are the details?

The email from Krahn to school staff that KUSI obtained primarily described a letter to parents about the coronavirus and the post-Thanksgiving schedule; the letter didn’t include a mention of the MAGA hat. But in the email introduction, the station said Krahn described the MAGA hat incident to staff:

We also had a student wear a MAGA Hat today. I have talked with that student who now understands why that hat is offensive to our community. He will not wear it again. In addition his mom said that she is embarrassed by his actions. She will fulfill her role as a parent. We will continue to grow as a community that sees and values the dignity of all people.

Krahn also appeared in a video to the “school community” that described the incident. In the clip, Krahn said “the First Amendment is very important to me. I was willing to give my life for it as I served in the Army. It is one of the most precious things that we have in this nation.” He then explained why he spoke to the student about the MAGA hat:

La Jolla Country Day’s Head of School says MAGA hats are a “symbol of racism and hatred.”

Krahn added that the student “has every right to wear” the MAGA hat, and that Krahn “had friends give their [lives] for that right.”

“When I approached the student, I shared with him that he had that right to wear the hat,” Krahn added. “I also shared with him the impact it has on our community. That hat has a symbol of racism and hatred. … It’s a fact that in our community, there’s a belief that that’s what that hat represents. And because we’re a community of dignity — that all people have value, and that all people are vulnerable — I wanted the student to know that his decision was gonna have an impact on people. He graciously took off his hat.”

Krahn also said in the clip that “it was not a political decision to reach out to him and talk about that hat; it was a decision about dignity — the inherent value that all humans have.”

“We’re gonna continue to honor the First Amendment,” he also said. “We’re gonna continue to be a community of dignity and to realize that if our actions impact others, we have a responsibility to work on that, to improve, to grow. Our students are gonna become leaders in the community. [I] can’t think of anything more precious than to have them go out there with not only the knowledge but with the belief that all humans have value. Create the community that we dream about. That’s what La Jolla Country Day is all about.”

Citing the school’s 2020-2021 Parent/Student Handbook, KUSI said the school’s dress code does not outlaw political attire.

The station said it reached out to Krahn for comment but hadn’t heard back.

Tucker Carlson weighs in

KUSI said La Jolla County Day School “is one of the most prestigious private schools in San Diego County” with yearly tuition ranging from $28,500 for kindergartners to $37,130 for high schoolers.

In a segment about the incident on his show Wednesday night, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson — who attended La Jolla Country Day — said “it was less expensive and more tolerant when I was a little kid there … sad to hear it.”

Fox News Intelwars Rumors show trump Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson shuts down the rumors, says he is not leaving Fox News

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took time on his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” on Monday to address the rumors that he might be leaving for another network. According to the host, that is not going to happen.

What are the details?

“Over the weekend, we got a lot of calls asking if we’re leaving Fox News,” Carlson told his audience. “Ironically, at that very moment we were working on a project to expand the amount of reporting and analysis we do in this hour across other parts of the company.

“This show is not going anywhere. It’s getting bigger,” the host continued, adding, “The people who run Fox News want more of it, not less, and we are grateful for that.”

Just last month, Carlson and Fox News broke cable news ratings records. Nielsen Media Research ratings for October showed that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” saw the highest monthly viewership in the history of cable news, while the network itself also saw the highest primetime averages in cable news history.

But Fox News faced criticism from President Donald Trump and many of his supporters, who allege that the outlet acted too quickly in calling the state of Arizona for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Fox News has defended its determination, but has taken heat from some conservatives for refusing to waiver on the stance.

Eventually, every major mainstream news outlet also called Arizona — and, ultimately, the national race — for Biden, who is projected to garner 306 Electoral College votes to Trump’s 232.

Meanwhile, President Trump has refused to concede the election as his campaign continues to contest the race through litigation in several states, alleging voting irregularities and fraud.

Critics lash out at Fox News

Fox News also took shots from some critics after host Neil Cavuto cut away from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s speech during a Trump campaign news conference, and after leaked off-air footage went viral showing anchor Sandra Smith who expressed concern over claims by a guest who stated, “Remember, just because CNN says, or even Fox News says that somebody’s president doesn’t make them president.”

Trump has also used his Twitter feed to further criticize Fox News and to promote alternative outlets, namely Newsmax and One America News Network.

Rumors then began to swirl on social media about the prospect of Fox News megastar Carlson moving to another network, prompting him to address the matter outright on his show.

black Fox News Intelwars Jason Whitlock liberals Mainstream media Media Bias Racism Tucker Carlson

Jason Whitlock tells Tucker Carlson how the media, left use language to control black Americans

Sportswriter Jason Whitlock appeared on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show Friday where he tore into the media and liberals for manipulating language in order to get black Americans to “live up to our skin color.”

What’s the background?

Whitlock’s fiery rebuttal of the left came after the Associated Press amended its style guide in June, declaring news organizations should capitalize the “b” in “black” when referring to black Americans and black culture.

In an essay on OutKick, Whitlock wrote last week, “My skin color doesn’t define me. It’s simply the wonderful packaging God chose for me. When people see me and hear my name, I want them to think Christian, American, intelligent and honest. Those are the characteristics I want to define me.”

What did Whitlock tell Carlson?

While speaking with Carlson, Whitlock made it clear why he thinks it’s problematic for the media and liberals to give such special attention to the word “black” — and why the problem is much bigger than the mere capitalization of one letter.

“It is a way of defining to black people that your most prized possession, your greatest asset, your most defining characteristic is your skin color,” Whitlock said.

He continued:

No one else has to live up to their skin color. They are free to accentuate their intelligence, their faith in God, their commitment to family, their love of freedom. But we, as black people, as defined by the white liberals, in my view, running the mainstream media, running Hollywood, we have to live up to our skin color above all else, and that’s just not much of an attribute, in terms of— it’s a great packaging. I’m very proud of being black. But that’s not my number one attribute.

I want to be defined by my faith in God. I want to be defined by my intelligence. That’s what I want people to see when they think about me, not my skin color.

In fact, Whitlock said that liberals and the media emphasize “black” as a means of control, and related it to the mindset of slave owners.

“These people, 400 years later, these are the ideological descendants of those bigots from 400 years ago, doubling down a written reminder to black people, your skin color is your defining characteristic. And therefore, we are going to limit your freedom. You spend all of your energy trying to be unapologetically black. Everybody else gets to go out and try to be intelligent, responsible, God-fearing, patriotic,” he said.

What’s worse, Whitlock said, is that the media and white liberals — citing comedian Chelsea Handler, who recently said she had to remind rapper 50 Cent that he was black because he said he would support President Donald Trump — take it upon themselves to define what is and is not “black.”

“We are not even in control of that, so we are actually trying to meet standards defined for us by other people, live up to their standards, and they are defining blackness as a lot of things that just aren’t healthy for us,” Whitlock explained.

Fox News Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany Neil Cavuto Tucker Carlson voter fraud

Tucker Carlson takes shot at fellow Fox News host for cutting away from WH press sec Kayleigh McEnany

Fox News host Tucker Carlson appeared to take a shot at his Fox News colleague Neil Cavuto on Monday after Cavuto controversially cut away from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

What’s the background?

During a press conference on Monday, McEnany, appearing alongside Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, suggested the outcome of the election was marred by “fraud” and “illegal voting.”

That’s when Cavuto immediately cut away from McEnany.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we have to be very clear,” Cavuto said.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting,” Cavuto continued. “Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this. I want to make sure that maybe they do have something to back that up, but that’s an explosive charge to make that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating.”

He went on to say, “If she does bring proof of that, of course, we’ll take you back; so far she has started saying, right at the outset, welcoming fraud, welcoming illegal voting. Not so fast.”

What did Carlson say?

On his Fox News show Monday night, Carlson took a swipe at Cavuto, although he did not refer to his Fox News colleague by name.

“A large percentage of our population no longer believes that our democracy is real. That is sad. It is also dangerous — it could easily get worse,” Carlson began.

“What we’re doing in response is hardly the solution. It is making our country much more volatile. It is setting us up for something bad,” Carlson continued. “In a democracy, you can’t ignore honest questions from citizens. … You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy or immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like.”

Carlson went on to say, “You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome, because force doesn’t work in a democracy — that’s dictatorship. In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy; you have to win them over with reason.”

Although Trump’s campaign and supporters continue to allege voter fraud swung the election in Biden’s favor, election experts say they have not seen evidence of widespread voter fraud.

“The credible path is to actually be able to produce evidence in the individual states to show fraud, to throw the results in doubt. So far we have seen absolutely nothing that would rise to that level,” election law expert Benjamin Ginsberg said, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Meanwhile, election law expert Richard Hasen told NPR, “Unless something new happens, I don’t see a viable path for Trump to litigate his way out of an Electoral College loss.”

Biden family damaging documents Biden family documents Intelwars Tucker Carlson Tucker carlson biden documents Tucker carlson biden documents disappear Tucker carlson package Ups returns biden docs

Tucker Carlson says UPS has delivered the Biden family documents, but they refuse to answer why they went missing

Tucker Carlson continued the saga of the Biden family documents by explaining that UPS had not done enough to answer his questions about how the documents were separated from their packaging and lost briefly.

Carlson told his audience about the newest developments in a short segment on his Fox News show on Thursday evening.

“UPS is a reliable company, they rarely lose anything, we agree with that. That’s why we use them in the first place,” said Carlson.

“And yet they lost our Biden documents. How? UPS won’t tell us how. We spent a lot of the day talking to executives there, they claimed that the flash drive was found on Monday night by an hourly employee at the UPS building on 43rd street in Manhattan. They suggested it might have been sitting on the floor there,” he continued.

“They couldn’t prove that, because, remarkably, in a room where millions of high value packages are handled, there are no security cameras. That’s what they told us. UPS says the employee who found our flash drive simply dropped it on top of the supervisor’s desk. Our document sat there, undiscovered, for more than 24 hours until we announced on television that they were missing,” Carlson said.

“That’s their story,” he added. “Obviously we had some questions about it, but UPS executives did not answer our questions.”

He then read a statement from UPS about the flash drive.

“There are no more details. Security is returning it. Apologies again that we were unable to deliver it next day at the service level you requested,” read the statement.

Carlson said their exchanges went back and forth for hours and they did not get an answer to their main question which is how the documents were separated from the envelope.

“Someone, for some reason, opened our package, and removed a flash drive containing documents that were damaging to the Biden family,” he added. “We’d love to know who would do that, and why. It would be helpful to see the envelope itself, but UPS says we can’t see it because they threw it away.”

Carlson said they were now in possession of the flash drive, but he did not relate the contents or give any details about how they were damaging to the Biden family.

He went on to say that he had received other documents from other sources that he would not release about Hunter Biden and his personal life because it was improper to do so.

Here’s the video of Carlson’s comments:

UPS says it has found the contents of Tucker Carlson’s lost package reportedly ‘damning’ to the Biden family

United Parcel Service announced Thursday that after an extensive search it has located the contents of the package that Fox News host Tucker Carlson complained had been somehow lost in transit.

Carlson reported Wednesday night that he was expecting the shipment of a “collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family” which his team had obtained, but that the package containing the “damning” information had mysteriously never arrived. Instead, he reported someone at the shipping company had opened the package and removed its contents.

It was revealed Thursday morning that the shipping company used by Carlson’s team was UPS. The Fox News host’s producer had reportedly shipped the package using the overnight service from the show’s New York office to Los Angeles, where Carlson was interviewing former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski.

For a moment, it appeared that the information would be lost forever, but according to TheWrap, now the contents of the package have been found.

“After an extensive search, we have found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return,” UPS told the news outlet Thursday. “UPS will always focus first on our customers, and will never stop working to solve issues and make things right. We work hard to ensure every package is delivered, including essential goods, precious family belongings and critical healthcare.”

TheWrap noted that UPS did not indicate how soon the package might be delivered to Carlson. Nor did the company offer any information about how or why the package was lost or misplaced.

Carlson had reported that UPS “went far and beyond” in its search for the package ahead Wednesday’s show, “but they found nothing.”

“[They] went through the office in New York where our producer dropped that package off … [and] combed the entire, cavernous sorting facility,” he added. “They used pictures of what we had sent so that searchers would know what to look for.”

At the time, he said “the company has no idea — and no working theory, even — about what happened to this trove of materials, documents that are directly relevant to the presidential campaign.”

Fox News has yet to comment on the retrieval of the information.

UPS reveals it’s the company that lost Tucker Carson’s ‘damning’ cache of ‘confidential’ Biden documents

Fox News host Tucker Carlson reported Wednesday night that “a collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family” his show had obtained suddenly went missing while in the hands of an unnamed shipping company.

According to Carlson, while he and his producer were in Los Angeles, they received the documents — which he said “are authentic, they’re real, and they’re damning” — in the New York office and asked for them to be shipped to L.A.

A Fox News producer reportedly shipped those documents via overnight service — but the documents never arrived, instead someone within the shipping company allegedly opened the package and removed the contents.

Through all of this, Carlson chose not to name the shipping company in question.

On Thursday, Business Insider reported that UPS told the outlet that it was the company that had lost the documents and that it was running an internal investigation to figure out just what happened.

UPS Corporate Media Relations Director Glenn Zaccara told Business Insider that Carlson’s “package was reported with missing contents as it moved within our network.”

“UPS is conducting an urgent investigation into this matter and regrets that the package was damaged,” Zaccara said, according to Business Insider. “The integrity of our network and the security of our customers’ goods are of utmost importance. We will remain in frequent, direct contact with Fox News as we learn more through our investigation.”

Carlson on Wednesday offered praise for the shipping company’s efforts, saying, “They went far and beyond, but they found nothing.”

He noted that UPS “went through the office in New York where our producer dropped that package off” and “combed the entire, cavernous sorting facility. They used pictures of what we had sent so that searchers would know what to look for.”

The company also searched the vehicles and plane that carried the package, Business Insider said.

Carlson concluded that “the company has no idea — and no working theory, even — about what happened to this trove of materials, documents that are directly relevant to the presidential campaign.”

Tucker Carlson explains mysterious circumstances of how documents ‘damning’ to Biden family ‘vanished’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that he was close to obtaining documents “damaging” to the Biden campaign, but that they suddenly “vanished” under very mysterious circumstances.

Carlson explained how it happened in a segment on his show Wednesday evening.

“So on Monday of this week we received a, from a source, a collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family,” Carlson said.

“We believe those documents are authentic, they’re real, and they’re damning.”

Carlson went on to say that he and his executive producer were in Los Angeles when they received the damning documents.

“So we texted a produced in New York and we asked them to send those documents to us, in L.A., and he did that. So Monday afternoon of this week he shipped those documents overnight to California with a large national carrier,” he continued.

“But the Biden documents never arrived in Los Angeles. Tuesday morning we received word from the shipping company that our package had been opened, and the contents were missing,” he said.

“The documents had disappeared,” Carlson said.

Carlson said that the company took the matter very seriously and interviewed all their employees who would have had handled the package on its way to Los Angeles. The company found that the package had been opened along the way and the contents taken, but they did not discover who could have done the deed.

“They went far and beyond, but they found nothing,” said Carlson.

“Those documents have vanished. As of tonight, the company has no idea, and no working theory even about what happened to this trove of materials, documents that are directly relevant to the presidential campaign just six days from now,” said Carlson.

“We spoke to executives at that company a few hours ago, they seemed baffled and deeply bothered by this and so are we,” he concluded.

Carlson has been reporting details surrounding accusations that Joe Biden used his former position as vice president to benefit his son, Hunter Biden, and himself in deal allegedly involving the Chinese government. Carlson did not detail what the documents that vanished had said about those accusations.

Here’s the video of Carlson’s comments:

Bobulinski accusations Bobulinski tucker Intelwars Joe Biden Tony bobulinski Tucker Carlson

‘A blatant lie’: Tony Bobulinski says it’s ‘disgusting’ that Joe Biden is denying involvement in his son’s business dealings

Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, said Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden’s denial of involvement in a lucrative 2017 business deal between the Biden family and a Chinese energy conglomerate is “disgusting” and “a blatant lie.”

Bobulinski made the claim during an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday, in which the Navy veteran said he almost stood up and shouted “liar!” during last week’s presidential debate when Biden argued the story was baseless Russian disinformation. Bobulinski was in attendance at the debate in Nashville, Tennessee, as a guest of President Donald Trump.

“That’s a blatant lie,” Bobulinski told Carlson regarding Joe Biden’s denial that he was involved. “When he states that, that is a blatant lie.”

He added: “In that debate he made a specific statement around questions around this from the president, and I’ll be honest with you, I almost stood up and screamed liar and walked out, because I was shocked that after four days or five days that they prepped for this, that the Biden family is taking that position to the world.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Bobulinski said that Joe Biden’s continued denial to the American people about his involvement is “absolutely disgusting.”

Bobulinski, who says he met with the former vice president face-to-face in Los Angeles in May 2017 to discuss the prospective business partnership that the Biden family was establishing with CEFC China Energy, has turned over several electronic devices and business records to the FBI to corroborate his claims.

Text messages released last week appear to indicate that a meeting did in fact take place. One message sent from Bobulinski to James Biden shows Bobulinski asking the Democratic presidential nominee’s younger brother to “thank Joe for his time.”

Another text message from Bobulinski to Hunter Biden reads: “Mrng plse let me knw if we will do early dinner w your Uncle & dad and where, also for document translation do you want it simple Chinese or traditional?”

“Dad not in now until 11 – lets me I [sic] and Jim meet at 10 at Beverly Hilton where he’s staying,” Hunter Biden responded.

In May 2017, Joe Biden spoke at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California, hosted at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

Other alleged text messages appear to show that the Biden family and their business partners were wary of disclosing Joe Biden’s involvement in the dealings, though an email published by the New York Post last week indicates that wariness didn’t prevent them from giving kickbacks to Biden.

“10 held by H for the big guy?” the email said. Bobulinski would later confirm that the “big guy” was a reference to Joe Biden.

Fox News’ ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ breaks cable news ratings records

Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” has broken the record for the highest-rated monthly viewership in the history of cable news, drawing in an average nightly audience of nearly 5.4 million, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings for October.

What are the details?

The Washington Examiner reported that the program, which airs at 8 p.m. EST, “averaged 5,359,000 viewers nightly, including 1,003,000 in the key 25-54 age demographic that marketers covet,” according to the Nielsen ratings, noting that “while the total ratings made cable news history, [Carlson] also became the first prime-time host to reach 1 million viewers in the 25-54 demo since September 2008.”

Fox News also broke a ratings record. According to TheWrap, “the network delivered the highest primetime averages in cable news history, too.”

But Carlson was not the only Fox News host to put eye-popping numbers on the board for this month.

Fox News pointed out that fellow primetime hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham also saw staggering viewership, reporting that “‘Hannity’ finished with its highest-rated month across both categories since the program launched in 2009,” and “‘The Ingraham Angle’ also made cable news history, finishing as the most-watched female host in history.”

Fox News further noted that it “finished with its second highest-rated total day viewership in the history of cable news, coming only behind its own coverage of the Iraq War in April 2003. With the victory, FNC has now beaten MSNBC and CNN in both total day and primetime viewership for 226-straight months.”

Anything else?

Tuesday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show is slated to feature Tony Bobulinski, who says he is a former business partner of Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Bobulinski claims to have in-depth knowledge and documented evidence of the explosive allegations linking Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to foreign deals involving his son, which were first reported by the New York Post and dismissed by several mainstream outlets.

Carlson tweeted Tuesday afternoon, “Tony Bobulinski says he met with Joe Biden about China. The media have suppressed the story, but it’s real and it matters. Voters have a right to know the details.”

President Donald Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump, Jr., wrote in response, “Eight words that the corrupt partners of the Chinese Communist Party over at Joe Biden’s campaign are dreading: ‘Good evening and welcome to Tucker Carlson Tonight.'”

Tucker Carlson reveals letter from Chris Cuomo’s building manager scolding CNN host for refusing to wear a mask

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has unveiled a letter addressed to CNN host Chris Cuomo from the building superintendent of his New York City residence, scolding the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and threatening to turn him in for repeatedly flouting the governor’s mask mandate.

What the details?

“Dear Mr. Cuomo,” the letter begins. “As I am sure you know, because of the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, on April 15, 2020 Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.17, which requires anyone over the age [of] two to wear a face mask or cloth that covers their mouth and nose while in a public space.”

It continues, “You have been observed entering and exiting the building and riding the elevator without the required face coverings. Even though staff members have asked you to comply with this requirement, you have refused to do so. This is a violation of the Executive Order, building policy, and places other residents and our staff at risk. There are no exceptions to this rule, and you are required to comply.”

The letter reportedly goes on to threaten Cuomo with a $500 fine if he continues to violate the mask policy.

According to Carlson, his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was able to speak with Cuomo’s building manager and verified the letter’s authenticity. The Fox News host joked that the letter itself belongs “in the museum of hypocrisy.”

Carlson goes on to play several clips of Chris Cuomo urging others to wear masks, and shows footage of Gov. Andrew Cuomo telling New Yorkers that they “could literally kill someone” by refusing to wear a mask in public spaces.

Tucker calls out CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s blatant mask hypocrisy

This is not the first time Carlson has exposed Chris Cuomo’s hypocrisy on mask-wearing.

Earlier this month, the Fox News host shared photos purportedly showing Cuomo maskless in public while smoking a cigar outside a restaurant believed to be on Long Island.

The Daily Mail noted that “Cuomo scrutinized Trump for flouting face masks after numerous members of his inner circle, White House staffers, journalists and workers at the Cleveland presidential debate contracted COVID-19 after his diagnosis.”

Cuomo contracted the coronavirus in the spring, and was roundly criticized after he was busted fibbing about remaining in quarantine as required.

TheBlaze previously reported:

The “Cuomo Prime Time” host went viral in April for videotaping his “official reentry” from quarantine into the rest of society following his own COVID-19 diagnosis. During his dramatic reentry, Cuomo insisted that he’d been stuck in the family’s basement for weeks during his convalescence.

However, it was shortly revealed that Cuomo was seen walking outside of his second property, and even engaged in an altercation with a cyclist while he was on the mend and purportedly confined to the family’s basement.
