tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  April 14, 2017 9:00pm-10:01pm PDT

9:00 pm
i am greg gutfeld in for the vacationing bill o'reilly. have a wonderful easter weekend and remember, the spin stops here because we are looking out forto you. >> this is a fox news u all right the north korean regimee appears to be moving to a nuclear test on saturday defying warnings, explicit ones from the trump administration. welcome too tucker carlson tonight. saturday is thehe birthday of te founder of north korea, and an object of religious veneration. it's already saturday morning on the korean peninsula. north korea's military issue stated a warning it would annihilate american troops within minutes if it isil attacked. it's hard to find anyone who really knows what's going on there, but michael is the top
9:01 pm
contender if anyone is he wrote a biography of kim jong il. from a non-expert point of view, this looks ominous, almost scary. >> we have absolute reason to be concerned. north korea has been preparing for 70 years with the idea that the u.s. imperialistics are going to come back and finish the job we started in the korean war. children have to wait outside the library at night so this is something they've been prepping for for decades. >> we know that they are paranoid and war-like and they have an enormous military. what to they want? >> the regimee wants to hold on to power at any cost necessary. during the 90s the u expelled from north korea because kim jongil said 10% of the population starved.
9:02 pm
if you some way doesn't that suggestin restraint? i mean, an attack on south korea wouldn't help y him, would it? >> it s absolutely would not hep him, but at the same time, his back's against the wall. his father got the supreme commander roleis according to te mythology because kim il's said if we lose we will destroy the world. so part of their mythology is you have to live with the spirit of the bullet and the bomb and lay down your life on behalf of the leader. the metro is the deepst metro in the world because it's a bunker. a huge percentage of their
9:03 pm
infrastructure is subterranean. >> how do you think they'll react to feeling cornered to the ultimatum laid down by the trump administration none i'm absolutely terrified because you remember president trump during the campaign said if someone hits you, you gotta hit them back harder. there's no allegiance to anyone. there are 100 to 200,000 people in00 concentration camps and the people in these camps are told explicitly and constantly if the u.s. im we will kill you all. >> we have a lot of american troops of course in south korea and the north korean government has saidea as we said in the ino they will be killed im immediately souel is the capitol of north korea.
9:04 pm
he turned north korea into a hedge hog with spines in every direction of which he meant missiles and a hedge hog can't be attacked by anima larger animal. >> so theea assumption of i thik lot of people in washington is that china will prevent this from happening. north korea's a client state, is that true? do they have control over the north korean government? >> china has been leaning on them and trying to>> get them to calm down for a very long time and north korea revels in the fact they're a country the size of pennsylvania and they basically give the finger to china, japan, imperiali sts. and china said this isn't what this is about so they changed it to bronze. kim jong il said the chinese system won't workid here, our systems for us and they called themselves a shrimp among whales they're small, scrappy guys taking on the big boys.
9:05 pm
>> they're legitimately tough. so finally, what's the right call at this point? i mean, obviously the west doesn't want to see a hydrogen ball in the possession of the north korean government. thoughts what they're moving toward. how do you stop them from doing that? >> anyone who says there's an easy good answer here is not telling the truth. the chinese don't want 24 million people who have never seen a computer crossing the 2-man river and setting up camp. it's a nightmare situation with no simple answer. >> is there any answer? how about a complex answer? >> it's going to have to be some kind of martial plan working together and it's they're not going to relinquish their hold on power of voluntarily. >> horrifying. you didn't make me feeluc better but i appreciate the information. north korea and isis are grabbing head lines but a different group is currently the mostgr likely to end your life n this country, the street gang
9:06 pm
ms-13. 6,000 members, active in almost every state, and is growing rapidly. just yesterday they were suspected in a horrific quadruple murder on long island, new york. tim clemente specialized in international counter narcotics and counter terrorism operation and he joins us on the set. thanks a lot. >> thanks for having me. >> this is a threat that has received weirdly little publicity but a lot of people have died as a result of ms-13 activity. give us a sense of the scope of this organization. >> it began primarily first as a stoner gang and wasn't involved in drug distribution, then it became very violent because their founders came from the rebellion in el salvador. they were part of the peasant guerilla fighters. they brought that warfare to los angeles and it's since spread
9:07 pm
throughout the united states. living here in the washington d.c. area we see a terrible problem where it's really become almost the hub of ms activity in the united states. los angeles was the origination point, but now we see that this area in the united states, as well ast boston, massachusetts, areas of new york and new jersey are being over run. anywhere there are communities from central america settled that's where these guys move in, disrupt the neighborhood, disrupt the local immigrants and they're destroying the fabric. >> the normal people suffer first, always. >> the united states f. b. i. first formed a task force i believe about 2004 to deal with the problem a little bit late to theto party but that task force has since done raids all over the united states. 6,000 reputed members. i've heard the number closer to 8 to 10,000 throughout the unix that was a gang estimate in 2009. these numbers are very fluid
9:08 pm
because we don't know who's a member. it's not like there's a registry we can go to and check that. the problem is that traditionally ms-13 has been known by the tattoos, especially the facialth tattoos, very prouy putting the ms label and the ms-13 all over their body but now they're shying away from that because they realize you kind of stand out. >> you kind of do. >> so now they're moving towards let's not tat ourselves so badly so we can maybe get away withwa some more crimes. if they hide as well as they do now it will be so much tougher forey us to find them. >> the government is really worried about ms-13. >> very much so. >> i don't think the u.s. government has designated them a terrorist organization. >> absolutely we should. when you look at the muslim brotherhood, it those are terror groups, but they're also legitimate political entities associated with that.
9:09 pm
not true for ms-13, it's kidnapping, rape, child prostitution, murder, murder for hire. that's all they do, so there's no legitimate group. anybody that's associated with this ms-13 is involved in terrorism. terrorism by definition is trying to change political attitudes and using force and the threat of violence to do that. that's exactly what they do. >> so if the salvadorian government thinks that the case and g they would know what's the hesitation on the part of our government to make that designation? >> honestly i don't know why we don't look at the facts cold and detached from the fact that this isn't an immigrant group. this isn't people emigrating to become part of the united states. these are people coming here to commit crimes or are being recruited to commit crimes. there are most of their leaders have come from el salvador, but since guatemala, honduras and now within the united states. those leaders, stories in 2007,
9:10 pm
2009 crimes committed over seas riin mexico or central america d they fled into the united states to hide. that's not a good sign. >> been a pretty intense a-block tonight -t. >> thank you, tucker. >> up next, new scientific studies argue that babies are already racist when they're six months old. which of course is crazy. i'm going to talk to the lead researcher to find out how he reached that conclusion. ththe opioid epidemic, we'll tak to an opioid addict about what it's like, the challenge to getting clean and how doctor contributed to his crisis. these are live pictures of kim son's birthday celebration, they're expected to start a missile test o there shortly. we'll monitor the news out of that region by the minute so stay t tuned. hey, how's it going?
9:11 pm
um... who are you? i'm val. the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. i represent the money you save for the future. see? we're putting away acorns to show the importance of being organized. that's smart. who's he? he's the green money you can spend now. what's up? oh you know, gonna pay some bills, maybe buy a new tennis racket. tennis racket for a squirrel? he's got a killer backhand. when it's time to get organized for retirement, it's time to get voya.
9:12 pm
9:13 pm
9:14 pm
>> see that picture, it's a baby, cute isn't it? we blurred the face to protect his identity because we've got bad news you're looking at a biggot. according to a new pair of scientific papers your baby is one too. those studies say all bass babies are racist. eve. when they're six months ole.u researchers in the university of toronto found when babies hear happy music played they stare longer at the pictures of their own race, while sad music makes them linger on the picture of other races. the lead researcher for these studies joins us now. thanks for coming on. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you. so pardon my skepticism, kind of
9:15 pm
hard to believe that babies aree biggots. are you sure? >> i'm not saying babies are biggots, i'm just looking at whether or not the babies are already biast to associate certain kind of emotions with own race versus other race. one of the t things we discover, however, is that three months old are not. so they don't associate negative emotions the way own race or other race individuals. however, after about six months of life the babies start to show some bias. when the music is happy they tend to look longer at their own race individuals over other race individuals. >> they go bad at six monthses. what's the punishment for that at sixix months? >> i don't think there's any punishment for it. i think the reason for this is actually because when most of us who are born into monoracial families we tend to see only the faces of our own race
9:16 pm
individuals. because of this we limitedave very experience with other race individuals. one of the things that when we develop we tend to show a novelty a bias that we feel uncomfortable with things that are new and unfamiliar.it because of this, and when they see other race individuals and they're not familiar with them, they tend to associate some negative with them. >> now i'm not a social scientist or a researcher, but it seems unlikely that you could measure the racial attitudes of a 3-month old beyond like my diaper's dirty kind of thing or i want some milk. >> the way to do it is to see what kindr of things we associae with, or whether or not we tend to learn the babies like to learn from own race individual or other race individual. for example in the second study we did, we actually showed own race adults or other race adults teaching kids about what's going to come up. and in one condition, both of
9:17 pm
them actually 100% correct. in this condition, babies don't care.ti regardless of their own race, other race individuals, they learn from them. when both of them are incorrect, 100% of the time, and they don't want to learn from any of them. babies are very, very smart. the critical question is one, it is under uncertainty. when both adults are 50%th correct, what would the baby do? we found that the babies would like to learn more from the own race individuals, treat them as 100% and the other race individuals as if they are 100% incorrect. so these are biases, but i don't think this was biggot rae or a kind of racism at play at this young age. i'm just saying this is a basis we may build up with our experience and then the diverge when we look at own race and other raceer individuals. >> from a non-expert point of view, this suggests these attitudes are not learned
9:18 pm
behavior but are productses of evolutionary biology. as someone who covers politics i'm pretty certain your study's going to lead to new programs and government control of babies. >> i hope not. one thing, we are not predisposed biologically predisposed to be racially bias. this is what our findings suggest. it seems to be our early experiencece if it's very exclusive then we tend not to tend to develop early bias. that's one thing. another thing is identity depends on parents, right? and educators. whether or not you want your kids to develop biases. for example, you know, you could actuallyly introduce your kids' babies to read story books that ares depicting people from all over the world. i think that's healthy for your child to see more individuals from different races, ethnicities, as well as expose them to different cultures. iem think it will make your babs
9:19 pm
more worldly. in terms ofin government progra, i'm not sure. for parents, these are good messages from these studies. >> call me cynical, but i have the feeling this is going to justify a whole new range of intrusions into peoples' family lives where all of a sudden government regulators and do-gooders and people with guns are going to rearrange the family in the interest of promoting tolerance or whatever. >> no, no, no. i think you got it totally wrong. >> i don't think i do. >> the early experiences are very important. we know this from many, many studies, right the early experience are very, very important. the more experience they have, the better they're going to be. different languages, different people from different races. i don't think government has anything to do at this point.
9:20 pm
>> obviously not good enough, because they're not doing whatever is required with a to keep them from forbidden the attitudes you described. >> i don't think so. parents know, like, the parents know what's good for their kids, right? parents know that if you teach a kids about differ kinds of people, people of you know story books about chinese people, about african people, about american people, about europeans, i think the more they know and the more they learn, the more they learn, and the more experience they have. thigh become worldly. i think parents like their kids to be worldly. >> i agree with that, it's just i guess again having covered this stuff for many years when you said quote, at this point, i got a chill because i realized that i'm going to read your study in a new york times piece ten years from now sort of desegregating day care or requiring parents to give certain kinds of picture books to their kids. there's really no question about
9:21 pm
it and i'll have you back on. >> i hope people do not take the message from us in this way. this would be, like, you know, i don't think people are reading these studies and reading these findings and saying hey, the government's going to come in and take my baby away. i don't thinken so. i think the idea here is experience is important and the diversity of experience is important for development. >> i definitely agree with that part of it. dr. lee, thanks a lot. >> thank you. >> lawmakers of north carolina are considering a bill that would allow a comprehensive fire armslo safety course to be taugt in high schools. there are tens of millions of gun courses in america. since accidental gun deaths do still kill thousands every year. would not actually involve ammunition or shooting. and yet many progressives in the state oppose the bill anyway. at least one on the ground said quote, there's enough violence already. that's right, like a magical totem, the gun inspires violence merely byy learning about it.
9:22 pm
next, a contractor in california is having business targeted simply because he bid to build the government's border wall. he joins us next. we'll continue monitoringng breaking news out of north korea. it's unominous moment, it's already morning in north korea, you can see missiles, tanks, and rockets as that country gears up for a huge rally in the capital city. we're staying with the story, stay with us. where's frank? it's league night!

9:27 pm
and the result is more attention on the korean peninsula than in the lifetime of anyone watching this most likely unless you were around during the war there which ended in 1953. we are following this closely. experts arehi saying that this s a real flash point. there is peril here for real. it is not hype. we'll be following that story, of course, through the night and through the weekend. olback to news here in america, james flanagan operates a construction company and he bid on the border wall. he submitted a wall pitch that has some remarkable features, lasers, anti-tunnel technology asurface that cuts your hands when you try and climb it and more. if is a remarkable work of art but now his company is being threatened, san francisco, berkley, oakland all threatening to black list him merely for bidding on a federal project. mr. flanagan, thanks for coming
9:28 pm
on. >> it's great to be here. >> so first just quickly did i characterize your wall correctly and all the features it has? it doesn't sound like any wall i've seen? >> all the credit goes to the designer, charles racilo, he approached me not too long ago to really it's an honor and humbling to be the one to, uh, hopefully build this wall because it's better than any concrete or any wall that anyone has ever seen. and it is, it basically we have a system to basically combat that. >> the wall looks like it leans a little bit in what direction and why? >> right, well, it will lean south towards mexico at a 30-degree angle and really what this does it makes it much more difficult to climb. uh, you can kind of picture it like a rock climber climbing at an inverted-type cliff. it's not a straight vertical
9:29 pm
wall. on top of that, it does have a face that will cut your hands apart if you did try to climb this wall. there's censors all over it, below it, and basically if anyone even gets near it or tries to penetrate it in any way, the governing authorities would know right away via computer system. each wall panel has a serial number and as soon as one of these censors picked up any type of activity, uh, computer system would read that and basically the authorities could respond accordingly. c >> i think that qualifies as a big, beautiful wall. is this something because you need the job? do you think it's necessary? t >> i'm really glad you asked that. i, i mean i believe in this wall.t there's no concrete involved in this wall, this is a com positit material. this is something that no one's ever seen. h it has ballistic capabilities,
9:30 pm
blast capabilities, it's very light, it's ten times lighter or ten times lighter than concrete - - i'm sorry, 100 times lighter tan concrete and, uh, ten times stronger. it has a 5,000 per square inch compression strength. >> wow. >> it's amazing stuff and it will go up faster, it will go up cheaper and it's going to take months not years to do. back to your question, uh, yeah, i mean i think this wall is basically the foundation of really the movement and the american movement to put our country first.n >> yeah. >> it is so important and i can't stress that enough. and so, yeah, it's a business decision for me, it would be an excellent opportunity. something to be a part of because i'm looking at being a part of history and then, uh, you know, there's a personal part of it that, you know, i support our president 100%. i support his agenda. and i think we need this wall to basically save our country at this point we're in a lot of
9:31 pm
trouble. we need to control our border. this is one way we can do it. >> i can tell by your accent you're a native californian so i guess you would know. tell me about the response you're getting from these three cities, berkley, oakland, and l.a. starting to black list you. what does that.? mean exactly if you're black listed by those cities? >> what it means is they would boycott or blacklist you from doing any contracts with the cities, with those cities and probably eventually the whole state of california. that's where i really see this going. it's reallyle disturbing. i mean, if i was going to describe it in one word, i'd call it tyranny. i don't think it's legal. what's really strange about it is these are companies that are in the bay area, it's not just construction companies or tech companies, all kinds of different types of businesses and business owners with employees. these are people who probably voted for these politicians. so it's kind of really the first thing or incident that i've seen
9:32 pm
where they're hurting their own people on their side as far as the left goes or democrats. >> yeah. >> and who really don't want to see this wall go up or really hate anything that our president wants to do. and so it's disturbing, and it's kind of unique in that way. so i'm hoping, uh, you know, the folks that are these business owners and the people that work for them, it's kind of a wake-up call to kind of see that i don't think these politicians really care about it. i don't think they have our best interest at heart, and i think they're all just drunk on money and ourer, and that's all they care about. and really i would challenge them to call me and i'll go to their house and i'll remove their fence or their walls for them and see how they would likd to live without a fence or a wall. on their fronte door. or with a lock on their door. i challenge that. i'll door it for free. anymore i'll do it for free. >> i like your style. thanks for>> joining us. good luck out there. >> thank you, tucker.
9:33 pm
>> thanks. now on to a very important story, a dr. in detroit has beep arrested and is charged with running a female genital mutilation racket. dr. narguala is a south asian immigrant to this country and works as an emergency room physician. she's now committed to the procedure on on girls six to eight years old. the girls are brought from round the country for their girls to be mutilated. this practice has been banned in this country for 21 years. thent practice is still widesprd in other parts of the world, universal in some places in africa and considered morally obligatory by some muslims. the rise of demand is exploding. more than a half a million degirls are now at risk of this, a figure that's quadrupled in the last 20 years. oddly, stopping this pact practice, which again is real, isn't a major concern for major
9:34 pm
american feminist organizations. nowhere near the top of their list. you'd think stopping actual violence of against women would be c a higher priority than stamping out cat calling. maybe they'd care more if the comment unof a duke lacrosse team were accused of doing this. >> facebook is taking up the mantel of helping accusers find and defeat what they're calling fake news because we know you can trust the vast tech corporation that is hoarding all your personal data. definitely trust them. is that the strangest story of the day? we find something stranger to top it, that cop test will continue and we'll continue to monitor what is becoming breaking news out of north korea, that country's dictator threatening a test on anniversary of his birth. we're going to l be monitoring this for as long as it takes. we'll be back in a minute.

>> we spent the last week talking about the opioid epidemic in this country, its unprecedented scope, its terrible death toll, and the suffering, amazing and horrible suffering it has caused. we conclusion clued our series drugs, and take a look at the addicts themselves and the tough journey back from sobriety. >> this is what the opioid crisis looks like in america adriver and a passenger slumped over in a ford explorer. in the back seat, the driver's four year old grand son waiting for someone to show up and help.
9:40 pm
the adults in the car overdosed on heroin. played out last september in east liverpool ohio but it could have been anywhere in this country. about two and a half millionn americans are now addicted to opioids. public health officials can barely keep up. through 1999 and 2015 the number of deadly overdoses nationally rose from a little over 8,000 to 33,000 a year. as a higher death rate than any war we've fought since world war two. prescription drugs were the root cause. fully 80% of heroin addicts said they first got hooked on drugs prescribed by a doctor. at first opioid-based drugs to their job,d they kill pain and generations opioids were prescribed sparingly with the knowledge that long-term loose could lead to addiction andto death. that beganeg to change in the 1990s thanks in large part to lobbying by drug companies
9:41 pm
hoping to spike their profit. the result, a massive increase in opioid prescriptions from doctors and a huge infusion of narcotics in the communities cross the country. it is now common, for example, for patients to receive opioids after having their wisdom teeth removed. a recent study found that the majority of those pills go unused by the patient after surgery. the affect of this 100 million tablets of synthetic heroin in circulation in american neighborhoods. that's just tooth extraction. multiply that by countless knee surgeries,u surgeries, and how t leads ultimately back to the crushingly sad tableau playing out in the front seat of the explorer in east liverpool ohio. the driver was trying to get to a hospital after realizing his companion overdosed. when paramedics arrived at the scene, they were able to give
9:42 pm
narcan. she survived. will she ever recover? if she's like many heroin addicts, she won't. she'll keep using and overdosing, until one day she won't come back. she'll leave a family, maybe drchildren, and they too may become addicts until someone some day decides enough and addresses this horror at its source. >> jeff is a recovering opioid addict and he reached out to us after this series' first sick. earlier this week. i should say that you're one of a lot -f people who e-mailed the show this week during the series but i thought your e-mail was really powerful and moving. explain why you e-mail - - you became addicted to opioids after a car accident? >> yes, that'ss correct. in 2006 i was in a car accident which lead to a back injury. i went to my family orthopedic, the injury, he gave me
9:43 pm
hydrocortizone and within the first few years i went and started painw management. painin management. our anesthesiologist give out opioids and i don't think they know what thehe long-term effecs are because within eight years i was on crazy amounts of medication that kept escalating and thank god i never went to heroin but it was so a long, long journey and yet right now i'm on methadone trying to get off but my back pain but it's been a little slower than i'd like and yeah, the medical professionals that they really don't have the training i believe they need to do what they're doing. the paind management system is flawed definitely. >> you've been on opioids for
9:44 pm
ten years. how has it affected your life, the goals that you've had, your relationships with other people, what's it been like? >> um, at first, for the first six and a half seven years, fine. uh, never got out of control. but what they don't tell you is when you take opioids your tolerance, the pain decreases but your tolerance for the medication increases. there's no backwards tolerance. so you keep building and building and building until you need more and more and more up untilld the point where there is no more. they won't give t you more. so i've done rehabs, 30 tay programs been clean for 60 days, 30 monthses and 1 a month my tolerance was back toac where it was. they didn't give any information that oxycodone is synthetic heroin. >> so you didn't know it was addicted when you first went in.
9:45 pm
>> no, it was a trusted family orthopedic. i went to him as a teenager for a knee injury, i didn't get opioids but he helped me with the knee w injury so i trusted him. >> what's it like when row go off it, when you don't have it? >> uh, it's the worst thing in the world. you feel like bugs are crawling out of you, you can't get comfortable, can't sleep. and it's like a 10 to 14-day process. so the 30 days rehab still about four days of a way to get off of it and that didn't work. >> knowing what you know now, what would you have done after getting in the car accident ten yearsng ago? >> did a little research on my behalf. i'm not playing a victim here y have some, you know.
9:46 pm
but these doctors handout these medications and don't say what they really are. >> yeah. >> and i wish i knew. i think government pharmaceutical companies, and doctors need g to give you a pamphlet make you go to a class to have knowledge. i am a libertarian with this. i don't think they should beed banned. >> right. >> or anything like that. but they should give you knowledge and they should give you sparing doses and take emergency use only. that's how i feel because when when if you're only going to get, say, five times a week, people who are addicted the doctors will be able to pick up quickly because they'll be trying too get in earlier, and earlier each month. and they give you opioids for 24-7. >> right. >> you know. and because - - go ahead. >> well, we're almost out of time, but i just want to know do you think you'll ever get off
