tv Tucker Carlson Tonight FOX News January 15, 2019 5:00pm-6:00pm PST
people are fine it's the government who is the problem. liam as it all figured out. chuck grassley at the top of that memo pad. lindsey graham has not received his new stationary with his name on it we leave you with that for tonight. that is the story for this tuesday night. we will see you back here tomorrow night. tucker is up next. ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." well, they have got him, finally. traps like john dillinger outside the biograph feeder by the g men. democrats now state that they have finally obtained proof, concrete and irrefutable proof that the president is, in fact, a secret russian agent. >> this president seems to be putting russia's interest ahead of our own. >> the evidence suggests indeed trump is, has been a pawn of the russians.
>> tucker: don has it nailed. as we told you last night we could have seen this coming. the fbi suspected it for some time. the bureau opened a criminal investigation into the president a year allege on the grounds that no loyal american would fire a leader at impressive as fbi director jim comey. putin must have ordered it. "the washington post" concurred with this as one of that paper's columnist noted trump is also, quote: endorsed populism. that's right. populism. that is the stink of russia all over it. it smells like vodka and day-old herring. people in washington have had their suspicion for years now. but now we know for certain and we know because of the stunning "new york times" piece today. in it current and former administration officials speaking, of course, behind the protected vale of anonymity because honestly you don't know what the kgg or whatever it is called these days is capable of doing to people who tell the truth they nonetheless divulge on multiple occasions over the last year the president has privately
floated the idea of pulling the united states out of nato. let that sink. in leaving nato. this is a huge story. or would have been a huge story in 1983 when the soviet union still existed and it was still clear what the point of nato was. nato was created to keep the soviets from invading western europe and nato did a very good job of that all the way until the very day the soviet union collapsed. that was the summer of 1991. it was almost 28 years ago. vladimir putin runs russia now. he does not plan to invade western europe. he can't. so why do we still have nato? well, nobody really knows. in washington, you are definitely not allowed to ask. and that's a shame because it would be an interesting conversation. remaining in nato comes with significant obligations. in the 190s our leaders decided it would be a wise idea to promise countries like latvia and estonia we would nuclear weapons if they had a problem with russia.
why did we do that? who knows? point is we did that article 5 obligates the united states to protect any nato ally that is threatened. so how do we feel about that now? are you ready to launch a nuclear war over latvia? what do you think of sending your kids to defend the territorial integrity of estonia. our foreign policy establishment thinks it's well worth it in fact, under our current rules of membership in nato. all of this might merit a national debate. at some point when we are ready 28 years in. no, the left isn't in to national debates anymore. they are in to screaming and threats and criminal investigation and other forms of coercion. they like things the way they are in this country. they are benefiting hugely from the status quo and they don't like being challenged. they consider asking difficult questions a criminal act. just this morning, in fact, the most famous former federal prosecutor in the country explained this view on twitter he said this, quote: if true, trump
should immediately and publicly state his apparent wish to withdraw from nato so he can be promptly impeached, convicted and removed from office. unquote. in other words, talking about leaving nato isn't simply unwise, according to our leaders, it's an impeachable offense. lot of famous and powerful people in washington think this. watch. >> withdrawing from nato, even discussing -- discussion about withdrawing from nato, i think, it would be disastrous for security. >> i think that act would be so destructive to our country, it would be a ground for some profound effort by our part, whether it's impeachment or the 25th amendment. he can't do that to this country and i don't believe that he can do it without senate ratification. >> tucker: did you catch that? the 25th amendment. in other words, according to saying member of congress,
someone there right now rethinking membership in nato isn't treasonous, it is prima facie evidence of insanity. you are not fit to govern if you say that you probably shouldn't drive a car in the interest of public safety. so whatever happened to the old democratic party? when did the antiwar people become neocons? when did it become the party of crystal and boot and every other hack trying to replicate the iraq disaster in nations around the world? who knows when that happened? that's exactly what the democratic party is stowed. just ask tulsi gabbard a democratic member of congress now running for president. on most questions she is a liberal represents hawaii after all of course she is. on the question of syria. she is skeptical. gabbard isn't eager to overthrow the assad government why? because she worries about what might come next. what might happen to the christians and other religious minorities who live there. for saying that, for holding that position, she is being denounced today by the left
as a monster. just this morning the daily beast tried to link her to david duke, literally. the dumb people on tv are mad, too. watch them. >> she went in 2017, gloria, this is going to be another issue to visit with bashar al-assad in syria. and this trip has already come back to bite her. she did apologize for this. >> she did. how many apologies can you make for bad judgment. not only will she be criticized inside the democratic party, but i think it makes her less effective candidate. i mean, you know, she can't position her sufficiently against trump about meeting with dictators when, in fact, she has done it herself. you know, i think she has some -- i think she is going to have some problems. >> tucker: that's a new standard in washington, just so you know. let's be crystal clear about this. you are not allowed to meet with foreign dictators. it's immoral. in fact, it might be treason. it could trigger the 25th amendment. unless it's, i don't know xi
jinping of china. yes the chinese government murders opponents and puts muslims in concentration camps and yes they are languishing in those camps right now. it's not a huge deal to meet with the chinese. the former governor of california jerry brown met with xi he praised him as a leader in the global fight climate change even though china is by far the world's biggest polluter. whatever. he may be a dictator but he a progressive dictator. the left is not against those they are for those. in fact they are role models in case you haven't figured it out. david tafuri a lawyer and former advisor to the obama administration and joins us tonight old enough to remember when it was the party of peace and now the party of mandatory war. i'm just wondering why shouldn't we have a debate about article 5 in nato which obligates the united states and all members of nato to defend the interest of other states? so why would -- should would he be on the hook tort fair toler integrity of estonia
and latvia. >> there is nothing wrong to have a debate i hope it will be educational. important to note that nato has been successful in the past. >> tucker: yeah. >> military and intelligence-sharing alliance and also an alliance of like-minded countries. you admitted that in your opening that nato was successful. >> tucker: it is. i would celebrate it. >> now, nato is still needed. history repeats itself. putin's russia is knot the same as the soviet union but it's trying to do some of the same things. it's trying to stamp out rule of laugh. it doesn't believe in freedom. it doesn't believe in free markets. it's trying to spread a vision of autocracy that will enrich putin and other oligarchs that's what they have in russia and trying to spread it to the rest of europe. >> tucker: how is that different than china only that it is less effective. i don't think russia has taken over africa or latin america yet or the caribbean china has. it's only fine to get rich from sucking off the chinese oligarchs our whole rolling class does. it's wrong not to defend
latvia against putin because why? >> you are right. >> tucker: i know i am. >> nato is an alliance aligned against china in many ways as well. >> tucker: no let's -- >> -- comparing russia to china doesn't make russia okay. >> tucker: you are trying to explain why it's in america's vital interest to start a nuclear war to defend latvia. >> no, i did not say that. >> tucker: that's what we would be obligated to do. >> america's violate interest to defend other did you know tries around the world that have trying to become democracies that are trying to promote freedom and individual rights and trying to promote human rights and rule of law. that's what latvia at other bath baltic states are doing and we should encourage that by extending that security umbrella to them. >> tucker: so, in other words, our kids get to die for latvia because it somehow protects the rule of law for them to too that. i'm asking does the average american understand we are on the hook for this?
i think that's a real question which is trying to be ignored. they are trying to shut down the conversation. >> you have to look at history. if latvia and the other baltic states fall to aggressive russia. ultimately other countries in europe and ultimately it will come back to us anyway just like world war ii. these are the same arguments people made in favor of not doing anything against germany and nazis in bolder war 2. the exact same thing. >> tucker: i'm not actually making that argument. >> yes, you are. >> tucker: nazis do not exist and neither does the soviet union. i'm making the argument in 2019 which we are right now. i'm interested since you brought it up what european countries you think at risk of being invaded by russia? >> certainly the countries that have recently joined nato. the baltic states are a threat. that's why you bruit them up. countries not yet part of nato. other countries not yet part of nato. >> western europe? >> ukraine is not passionate
of nato yet. >> tucker: part of the soviet union when i got 20 minutes ago. >> they want to be free and now it is free. >> tucker: lots of people want to be free. poor country of western europe. >> poll land. >> tucker: poll land is not a core countrifully western europe. >> you are willing to received all of eastern europe even country like poland. only protect western europe? because once eastern europe goes then western europe is threatened. >> tucker: we're almost done. you think there is a plausible threat within our lifetimes of, say, the u.k., germany, belgium, litten stein, switzerland, spain, portugal being invaded by russia. >> i'm thought saying that all the other countries in yearn europe including the ones who joined nato fell of course the next frontier for russian expansionism would be western europe. that's obvious, i think. >> tucker: not obvious at all to me but keep trying.
great to see you, david. >> thank you. >> tucker: christian whiton joins us tonight. when did bill kristol take over the democratic party? did you notice when that happened? >> yeah. it's amazing the turn when this group that used to be very reticent in committing the lives of americans, the blood the treasure of the united states to frankly other people's problems now seem to be more hawkish than neo cops were in the iraq war. >> tucker: do you think your average democratic voter is on board with that? do you think the average democrat and even in california liberal places up for having a war over the freedom yearning people of estonia? seriously? >> it's more than -- one thing about the baltics they still have fight this them and pledge almost of spending 2% of g.d.p. on defense. but, look at the expansion of nato more broadly. we puts monday at the negro in there recently. people want to put the nation of georgia on the
complete other side of the black sea in to which we are prohibited from putting any significant military expansion want to go on. what we heard from the last guest is a desperate search for new mission for alliance that is completely obsolete and which frankly succeeded almost two decades ago. >> tucker: i would be happy for a new mission. i would just like to know what it is. i'm not against nato and not making argument for disbanding nato if we could do something useful with it that's great. we should be orient from 1945. why do you think it is that the new democratic orthodoxy mandates that we keep troops in syria forever and anybody who disagrees with that as the daily beast pointed out today somehow aligned with david duke? where did that idea come from. >> this comes from yellow fever over russia. the idea that trump is a sleeper agent for russia. that russia, as your last guest pointed out to you, is poised to you invade western europe out same way hitler did in 1945. none of that is true. if you look at russia today
it has gotten away with a a couple fast ones. large russian population. putin is a bad guy his economy is $1.7 trillion. europe which can afford to defend itself $17 trillion. ours is 21. russia does not pose a serious threat. again, one thing that really cracked me up about your last guest, the idea that nato would have our back if we had to fight china, belgium luxenberg, france, where approval of america 38% or germany where only 30% of america have a favorable view of the united states they are going to enhelp us confront china. they are a huge distraction from deterring china. >> tucker: why do you think we never have these debates? it is supposed to be a democracy. don't the public have some zones what their obligations are under these treaties? >> you see senators get up and preen about progress
terse. they haven't had serious debates about that. both democrats and republicans up there who go off of the deep end when donald trump does simple things like say hey, maybe europe ought to spend a little more. maybe it should meet the modest obligation it has. it's a foreign policy establishment in washington. neither really republican or drawing the. it's an droj news. all of these people love doing where they get to go over europe wax poetic about 1945 or 89. not a serious realinerment or recognition we have to make choices. we can't be everything to everyone even with a giant defense budget $717 billion. we need to decide hot real threats are. >> tucker: couldn't be less impressive group of people from what i have noticed i would say. christian, thank you very much for coming on. appreciate it. >> thanks, tucker. >> tucker: so we learned today that the president is for certain a russian agent of some kind. what kind is there of that? well, we will raise out curtain and unveil the evidence after the break. ♪ ♪ arthritis,

the fortifications that surround the homes of our leaders. his first stop naturally was barack obama's house right here in washington. johnson couldn't get close to obama's home due to concrete barriers and police officers surrounding the entire area. apparently security in d.c. don't know that concrete barriers don't work. people just bring taller ladders. johnson's next stop was george soros' mansion in south hampton, new york. soros has not heard how walls work either. that's why he has surrounded his place with a 10-foot high concrete wall with a cameras on it. amazing. this investigation continues and, of course, we are deeply interested in what it finds. well the geniuses on cable news have spent years speculating that donald trump is a puppet of vladimir putin. and now they know for sure. the ma man which you written candidate is real a russian spy occupies the oval office. >> the evidence suggests indeed trump is, has been a
pawn of the russians. of putin. >> fact that he said yesterday i have never worked for russia just made you think over and over again about our two previous presidents embroiled in potential imments, bill clinton i never had sex with ha woman and richmond nixon i'm not a crook. >> where you start to see a pattern where he basically spouts putin's lies then you have to ask the unusual and frightening question about our president. >> why the president seems to be putting russia's interests ahead 6 our own. >> tucker: if you are watching at home you may be asking how did the people on tv get so dumb. you are driving to the studio to do it. v hit what am i going to say come up with a line and kind of clever don't run it by anybody else. instead admit it on the air and therefore humiliate yourself. that's what you just saw because the evidence we just heard was, let's see trump denies he worked for russia,
therefore, he must have. >> former director of national intelligence james clapper did everything he did to deplete the confidence nut hol holders of that office. is he very confident trump is a spy not sure why but very confident. watch this. it? >> is amazing. it's explosive. but, it's not really surprising. it just seems to me that the fbi taking its counterintelligence responsibility seriously would want to look into what's going on here. and it is there influence whether witting or unwitting by out russians over president trump and, you know, in the intervening year and a half or so, you know, his behavior hasn't done much, at least in my mind, to allay that concern. i think the fbi was justified. >> tucker: that's the man who lied to the congress under oath but he wasn't
bying on you but was in fact spying on you. buck sexton joins us tonight. thank you for coming on. this seems legitimately irresponsible to me for people in authority to talk like this to allege something like this when they don't really have any evidence that it's true. what's the long-term effects of talking like this on the agencies these people say they are trying to protect? >> well, tucker, there are these very senior government officials that you would like to think going forward any president, not just this president, could rely on for some degree of professional ethics and discretion. i mean, when you have a sitting president, as we do right now, who is being accused of treason, by former intelligence chief john brennan who is being accused of the most unethical wild behavior, being an agent of russia, and the long-term ramifications of that are going to be the people hold that office the presidency
going to say every conversation i have with this intel chief i come from this community they are supposed to be nonpartisan objective professionals kind of like journalists. they are supposed to be serving their country in a motion first and foremost these are political actors going to change the relationship the presidency has with these organizations and also on your point about the evidence by the way we have had now two years of a special counsel, give or take a few months, using the most sophisticate you had surveillance apparatus in the history of mankind. we are also told that donald trump is incompetent. doesn't know anything and doesn't understand anything. we have no hard everyday of him being a russian agent. this is a masked delusion now being per at the pet united stated by people who should know better. i believe a lot of them now don't. they have engaged in this public self-emulation of their credibility because they come to believe it. >> the message if you take a few steps back is that the unelected bliewbleg crazies
the agencies in the elected branch are more powerful than the elected president. that's what i'm concluding. that's the opposite of democracy, isn't it? >> absolutely is. and when you saw this "new york times" story that broke and people said oh, here we go once again, russia-trump, now we know the fbi, you have the same fbi that by the way has had people fired for cause by the way from the top reaches. at least one former cia agent mccabe may be facing criminal prosecution for lying about how he is conducting himself here. there has been bad behavior at that fbi. tucker, they are pointing to trump and saying oh, because. remember, this is just a small group at the top of the organization. this is not the rank and file. >> tucker: right. >> they are saying trump was acting against out national security interest of the united states. so they needed to investigate him because of that. meanwhile, firing james comey is just good business u that's a good idea based on everything that we have seen and, also, it's dangerous tore bureaucrats to think they determine
what's in our national security above the commander-in-chief. >> tucker: civilian control of the military of the federal agencies is like the corner stone of democracy. voters get to make these decisions. they elect someone to act on their behalf. and when people haven't been elected make it unilaterally that is not democracy. this is actually scary. buck sexton as always so incisive. thank you. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: the government ♪ allowed to know how many citizens live in this country. you can't ask. an amazing story. one of many after the break. ♪ ♪ chicken?! chicken.
>> tucker: here is a pretty amazing video it looks fake but good morning it is. david webb is a radio host and fox news contributor very good guy by the way. he recently hosted the cnn analyst called irhave a martin on his show and made an argument that she didn't agree with how did she respond? you know how she responded she immediately attacked him for his skin color but it didn't go the way she expected. listen to this. >> that's a whole another long conversation about white privilege things that you have the privilege of doing that people of color don't have the privilege of. >> how do i have the privilege of white privilege? >> david, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege. a whole long conversation. >> areva, i hate t break it to
you but you should have been better prepped. i'm black. lafayette. >> tucker: that's so great. hopefully, we can stop laughing long enough to pause and think a little bit and martin should think a little bit and realize that people should be, must be evaluated as individuals and not as a member of a racial group. that is poison. it's a culled sack. it destroys your soul and destroys the country. we used to know that but given the current psychosis the left do not realize but some day they will. some things have been banned during the trump administration, questioning nato, securing the border and now discovering how many american citizens live in america. can't do that not allowed. a federal judge today ruled that the trump administration is not allowed to ask on the 2020 2020 census whether respond dents are american citizens. that's one of many such
lunatic court rulings in the last year restricting what the president is alowed to do. the judge has blocked the end of daca. block obama's birth control mandate and blocked too many deportations to count. basically political. robert, an attorney joins us tonight to talk about what happened today. thanks for coming on. i appreciate it so there are a lot of ways to approach this question of whether or not the census can count people who are not here legally. who are not citizens but let me just remind you the purpose of the census in the constitution is to apportion congressional districts. okay? here is why this is a really important question. we think there are about 22 million people illegally four country. the average congressional district is about 710,000. that's the equivalent of over 30 congressional seats, okay?
that make as huge difference whether or not you count. it makes a difference potentially of who controls congress whether you count people who are not citizens in the congressional district. so why wouldn't you need to know? >> well, tucker, three points on this. point one is, let's understand there is a statutory guideline. there salah in place that the commerce department has to make this request three years prior to the census and they missed that deadline. just on a statutory ground they missed the deadline of course the judge had to rule against them. secondly, they haven't asked this question on the census since 1850s. it was on the census and has not been there ever since. the grounds of the government used to justify it was a section 2 of the voting rights act justification which in no way, shape, or form passes any muster. the voting rights act been in place the question has never ever been asked. no president. no census since 1965 used
it. voting rights act. thirdly, let's understand that when this question was asked, it was used in the 1940s to round up japanese citizens and intern them in encontinuement camps. clearly that does not meet the standards of 2019 americans. >> tucker: let me just go through these one very, very quickly. so using the voting rights act as an argument against it sounds dumb to me i agree. there is no excuse for missing any kind of deadline that sounds flakey. i think that's right. you are right. but it allies the actual debate which is do we have a right to know who is in our country. democrats are actually we don't have a right as to what franklin roosevelt did to the japanese it's terrible and they should be ashamed of that and i hope they are. too we as a country have a right to know who is in our country trflt.
why shouldn't we know for the purposes aimportancing congressional districts whether they are citizens or not. that's a key question and sincere one. >> tucker, what you have to understand there is another mechanism. the ac is. the annual -- there is a annual census study sent to one in 30 households determines the composition of the country. that's how we know there are 22 illegal immigrants in the country right now. the reason this is significant is we need to have an accurate count of individuals you, of human beings, of live bodies in this country and houses in every district. that's how schools are apportioned and emergency funds and offices are apportioned. we have individuals afraid to come forward and pattern pate. >> tucker: we don't know that. >> if you don't talk about these things they are not going to come forward. >> tucker: there is no evidence of that. that's a talking point. why don't know. >> that's thought a talking point. particular tuck there are no independent organizations no. one halls produced that data. that's not a knowable thing. we don't know how many
people are here illegally. we can't know how many were afraid to announce their presidency. the question is only should we tried to know whether american citizens should be aopportunitied in director districts and they aren't. >> we have a 12 billion-dollar current budget. wilbur ross has said they need 2 billion more dollars. any that make it more difficult to have people respond to census questions. the more role blocks put in the way of scaring people abe border patrol agent at the door to ask about your family. increase the accuracy of that census. >> tucker: why use race? doesn't that scare people? >> yeah. i think that's absolutely completely accurate argument. i think that's an antiquated way of measuring people. we have so many people in
this country now who are by racial. we need to reevaluate these things but you can't do it when you miss deadlines. >> tucker: i agree with that and dhechtsdly agree with you on the race question. thank you. well, out list of democrats got ocean longer today though not that much impressive. crist citizen gillibrand is running and announced it on the late show with stephen colbert. >> i'm just curious, do you have anything you would like to announce? >> yes. [laughter] >> and what would that be madam? >> i'm filing exploratory committee for president of the united states tonight. >> tonight? [cheers] >> tucker: what a suck up to power that guy is tammy bruce, i'm a little confuse you had. it was october 25th. less than three months ago when kirsten gillibrand ohio always thought was an honest
person said directly i'm serving out my term not running for president. she was already planning to run then, right? >> can you plan to run for president and know you are not going to be the nominee or president so you know you are going to serve your term in the senate. [laughter] >> tucker: that's one way to interpret it. >> i think she is being honest. many if not most of the people already announced save they are are going to do it even elizabeth warren does not expect to be the nominee. they expect to be in a cabinet. remembers. these were penal who throughout think were going to be in hillary's cabinet. many thought they were going to be in the white house. hillary's fair has opened this door wide that nobody thought they would see for another generation. and so, look, i think that the democrats, they are going to be in a civil war. they already are now. everyone is lining up. this is like an audition for
some other kind of position. this is their career. this is all they have ever done or imagined doing. and now the entire field is open. so they are all going to go forward and i think they should. now, the issue becomes who is going to be the queen or the king maker? is it going to be barack obama who taps someone on the shoulder? is it going to be hillary or ask she going to be somebody you want to avoid. is it going to be alexandria ocasio-cortez. who knows these days the. it should be the show on fox. tammy bruce, thank you. >> thank you, deer. >> tucker: new video shows abortion adding voyeur cat telling children that abortion is god's plan for them. we have that video after the break u ♪ ♪
♪ >> tucker: well, a new video circulating online shows an activist promoting abortion online. literally promoting it. recent youtube kids meet introduce children to abortion activist. in video we blurred the kids faces out. she teaches abortion is quote part of god's plan. >> why did you have an abortion? >> a few years ago i got pregnant and i really didn't want to have a baby. you go to the doctor and they put this little straw inside of your cervix and then inside of your uterus and then they just suck the pregnancy out. and it was like a crappy dentist appointment or something. it was just like oh, this is like a body thing that's kind of uncomfortable but then it was over and i felt
really just grateful that i wasn't pregnant anymore. >> what do you think god thinks about abortion? >> i think it's all part of god's plan. >> tucker: virtually everyone in the left abortion enthusiast. she has the word abortion tattooed on the inside of her leadership. lip. lila rose joins us tonight. has this been tampered with by youtube? >> no. a million views on youtube. it's up and running. >> tucker: they haven't demonetized it? >> not to my knowledge, no. >> tucker: what's this video for. >> this video is a piece of propaganda. you have kids, there is also video about transgender and other videos trying to get-year-olds, 9-year-olds, 10-year-olds to be comfortable with things that are harmful and this woman is a really wounded person. she is trying to justify her
abortion to 8-year-olds and validate herself to 8-year-olds about the abortion that she h there is really two paths can you take on abortion. either something you acknowledge it takes a life and you grieve that and you heal from that and that's what we hope for for women and men all over the country or you stuff the grief, you stuff the truth about what abortion really did to that child and then did you go around like amelia bono and you try to get more women to have abortions and try legitimize it even to children. >> tucker: this is a change. even people who support roe v. wade historically would be very uncomfortable with something like that someone promoting abortion which is clearly killing and everyone know it is. >> right. >> tucker: promoting it as a positive act to kids u you wouldn't have seen anything like that 10 years ago. >> i think it's the desperation of the proabortion movement right now. they have lost. they have lost, tucker. science shows us when life begins. life begins at the moment of conception. a unique, individual human life genetically distinct
from the mother just needs time and nourishment to grow. who is going to take care of these babies? you have thousands of pregnancy and health centers pro-bottom know providing mothers young morps in the pro-life movement. really no argument anymore. no justification anymore for why we need abortion in this country. >> tucker: is there anybody running for president in the democratic side how think would publicly criticize that video. >> no. that's the thing. the democratic party is lock step with abortion extremism. particular tuck if the democratic party was the party of working class economics would you tell that kind of insanity maybe it would have like normal people voting for them. >> they will lose every time if they continue to keep with the extremists on this witamole i can't bonos shouting their abortion; abortion through all nine months. late term abortion is great paid for by the taxpayer all nine months. the vast majority of americans poll after poll wants abortion restrictions. that's the fact. >> tucker: really sad.
it's really sad. >> it's really sad. >> tucker: lila rose, thank you very much. great to see you. >> thanks, tucker. >> tucker: big tech already knows pretty much everything about you but that's not enough. they want to know as much as they can about your children, too. a new report from the google transparency project first obtained by this program highlights google's aggressive campaign to have its products placed in america's classrooms. for years google has been recruiting teachers as partners urging them to use going apps in their class and promoting those app.s to others. received consulting contracts worth thousands of dollars. teachers won over school districts become collaborators in google's marketing scheme. one slide show in new jersey public school parents were told to let their kids, quote, let me see what you did in google classroom today instead of say what did you learn in school today? amazing this is happening. michelle malkin has been following it syndicated columnist and author and she
joins success now. has there been any push back? hard to believe consumer product okay with a company pushing on our school but no one seems to have noticed this. >> there is a building grassroots movement. what's most interesting and intriguing about it in the years that i have been covering it, tucker it, does cross some partisan and ideological lines. on the left with groups like the google transparency project campaign for accountability and some of the more vocal, you know, anti-corporation of the school type groups, they have been flagging it and trying to track down contracts and get more transparency and disclosure. on the right side of the aisle you have a lot of grassroots education reformers who are most concerned about family and parental autonomy. and so when there are nuggets like there are in this latest report that talk about how sergey brim the google co-founder's mother was advising people in these training sessions how to circumvent objections by the school district and by
parents, in creating g mail accounts by ignoring the objections and having students create dummy accounts, it raises all sorts of privacy questions as we have talked about last week with data mining. but, also public safety. and i have interviewed parents in missouri, moms who are teachers who are alarmed at the fact that they can't turn off the tracking when it comes to youtube browsing habits and google chrome books issued by the schools that then can gather information on servers in the home collecting things like medical data. it's outrageous. you asked last week, tucker, when we talked about this, where is congress? a lot of congress members, of course, take a lot of google money. so the plain fact is they are bought off. >> tucker: how bought off could they be when there is mounting evidence that technology like this harms children, severely harms, suicide for kids as you know is way up. they ignore that because
they are taking money? that just seems completely irresponsible. >> yeah, well, it is. that's the beltway swamp. in a lot of the cases i think some of these congressional members are completely insulated from the problem. or they ignore the fact that it's happening to their own kids. there's a lot of hypocrisy as well. not only among a lot of these google in silicon valley officials who ban their own kids from using social media as you mentioned. but, also, the disconnect, i think, between the beltway and the actual real harm that is occurring and vulnerability that some of these students face. >> tucker: you are a really great explainer of this problem. we appreciate it michelle malkin, thank you very much. >> i appreciate it google should be deplatformed from the public schools. >> tucker: amen. that's for sure. the president has made a priority but many countries still tax american goods more than we tax theirs. hard to believe it still happens it does. one member of congress has an idea for how to fix that he joins us after the break. ♪
holding weaker muslims in concentration camps. in china diversity is not considered strength it could be the most racist country in the world that doesn't mean china is above calling other countries racist if they can get something from it they are angry at the canadian government for arresting the cfo of a tell con company. arrested several in china and accuse them of crime. when canada protested this they knew t how to respond. it seems that to those people the laws of canada and other western countries are laws that must be observed while china's laws are not and shouldn't be respected. the reason why some people are used to arrogantly adopting double standards is due to learn egotism and white supremacy. that's in the chinese. it was a clever move though. western elites have no fear of being called stupid or weak or evil or dishonest. they don't care they are getting rich anyway.
they can't handle being called racist. how long until justin trudeau apologizes to the chinese for his privilege? we will tell you when he does. well, many countries place very tough tariffs on american goods but the u.s. does nothing in response. some members of congress would like to change that first among them is congressman matt gates of florida and he joins us tonight. >> thanks for having me tucker. >> tucker: what do you do about the trade imbalance? >> we have to have an old testament approach to trade an eye for an eye. china has 25% tariff on our auto industry. our president needs out authority to be able to impose the same tariff back on china or any other country. india has 100 percent tariff on motorcycles but woe wouldn't dare do the same to them. to me this won't lead to more tariffs it will lead to fewer tariffs countries know we will do to them what they do to us. i think then they will be less likely to punish american businesses. >> tucker: tell me the reasoning on the other side. what could possibly be the justification for allowing
that. >> of course there are establishment folks in the leadership of both parties that believe free trade is the answer to everything in every circumstance and it shouldn't matter what it does to the american workers if multinational corporations can offshore their jobs. and ultimately that has what has hollowed out the middle class in this country. if we give the president the authority to have fairness in trade, then i think other countries won't be so quick to punish american businesses and make it easier for multinational companies to offshore those jobs. >> tucker: i'm confused. you hear people say i'm for free trade. how is it free if the other side is keeping your goods out but selling his goods to you? >> well, most of the lobbying firms on k street aren't working for the american worker. they are working for large businesses that want the opportunity to have the flexibility to move jobs where it's cheap. we think that we ought tout president american worker first. that's why even though we are in a shutdown, the president is working hard on the reciprocal trade act so that he will have the opportunity to simply impose the tariffs on other countries that they impose
on us. i can't think of anything nor fair than that. >> tucker: how many democrats will you pick up in support of this. >> that will be the key question. a lot of these key questions are working class districts that working class won. this will be a real test for those democrats, do they hate president trump so much that they are willing to stand against the policyst that will help middle class voters in their district. >> tucker: i want to be clear we know what that is. is it that straightforward. >> of course. >> tucker: we impose the tariffs they impose on us? >> or that we have the plexability to impose them. if other countries knew that our president at the snap of a finger could impose the tariffs in those countries they impose on us, they would be less likely to do them. giving out president that flexibility is what would he want to do. because trump is the president, we are concerned that democrats will line up against this common sense bipartisan proposal just because anything that could help trump advance the american worker is something that democrats don't want to give him the chance to do. >> tucker: where are the
chamber of commerce on. this they are oppose you had. chamber of commerce, typical k street big business are not going to stand in anything that makes them more difficult to move jobs out of america to places where jobs are cheap. >> tucker: is that their argument? >> yes. >> tucker: interesting. of the democrats who are against it, their argument is, what? >> well, you know, i think, just make anti-trump arguments rather than arguments as to the policy of reciprocal trade. and we have yet to see really what the democratic strategy is on trade. trump has tried to make better deals. he wants the flexibility to make those deals. less of the globalist multi-national arrangements more bilateral trade where we actually have enforcement powers. democrats have largely stood against that even though these are policies in the past democrats are supported because unions have supported them and workers have supported them. >> tucker: yeah like 20 minutes ago. it's interesting. matt gates, thank you very much. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: we have run out of time sadly we will be back tomorrow at 8:00 p.m.
the show that the is pomposity and group think. tune in tomorrow to see what happened. it is now time we are going to go, we are 15 seconds, 13 now from sean hannity's show. >> sean: you have been. >> tucker: new year, man, i'm going to turn it to you with four seconds. >> sean: all right. tucker, thank you from the swamp in d.c. welcome to hannity. like a false prophet righteousness, james comey, former fbi director constantly pretending to be a courageous hero fighting for truth and justice. in reality, is he a hateful, vengeful, air gantz narcissist. we now know who abused power and fostered one of the most corrupt federal departments this country has ever seen. tonight we can report the walls are closing in on james comey. we have, yet, another major development in our hannity watch on the deep state. former
