FOX NEWS HOST TUCKER CARLSON: Good evening, and welcome to TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT.
It is not a partisan talking point or an exaggeration to argue that Joe Biden has opened America’s borders to the rest of the globe.
Since Biden’s inauguration in January, the Border Patrol has detained almost a million foreign individuals trying to enter the United States via Mexico.
How many persons are there in total?
That’s more people than dwell in the entire city of San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, Indianapolis, Boston, or Charlotte, and we’re only six months in.
That is a large enough group of people to permanently alter the country.
They could argue that this is a positive thing.
This massive influx of new people from other countries will benefit America.
If that’s the case, we’d like to hear more about it.
Thus far, no one has described how it works.
But you can’t claim that the border opening was lawful or that anyone in this country voted for it.
Congress has never approved the current massive influx of foreign people into the United States.
There was no law requiring it.
The Biden administration accomplished it entirely on its own, without consulting the American people.
They most likely already knew.
Every survey we’ve seen demonstrates that voters from all walks of life are opposed to free borders.
Because that strategy is extremely unpopular, the administration was unable to discuss it openly; instead, they acted in secrecy.
They kept it hidden.
They’re now concealing it.
So, what are they up to, exactly?
Tonight, we have fresh information for you that, at least in part, addresses that question.
This broadcast has proven that the Biden administration has enlisted the help of the United States military.
Illegal immigrants will be moved throughout our country in secret by the military.
At the Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas, this is taking place.
We know it’s going on because Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Burrows issued his staff an e-mail that stated it plainly, quote: “During the next several days, weeks, or months,” the statement started,
On our ramp, you may witness passenger planes bringing unauthorized immigrants.
Please study the accompanying Public Affairs instructions on the problem.” Burrow’s e-mail went on to tell uniformed military troops to keep what was going on at the installation hidden from the country they were sworn to protect.
“Do not take photographs and do not publish anything on social media,” Lieutenant Colonel Burrows said, “because there is no national security basis for keeping it hidden from the rest of us.”
He simply warned his employees not to talk about him.
Today, we received his e-mail from a whistleblower, and at first, we were skeptical that it was genuine.
You may recall that during the last administration, the Pentagon flatly refused to safeguard America’s southern border.
They answered, “That’s not our job.”
“It’s a little too political.”
Send us to Syria.” And yet, according to this paper, it was the same United States that was sent to Syria.
The Pentagon’s military leadership is assisting the Biden administration with utmost enforced stealth and secrecy in order to circumvent the country’s primary immigration laws.
It was difficult to imagine it could happen, but it did.
It has been confirmed by the Pentagon.
The flights from Laughlin, according to spokesman Chris Mitchell, are part of what he calls the U.S. noncitizen movement.
The mission of Immigration and Customs Enforcement
He then instructed us to direct any subsequent inquiries to I.C.E., which we did.
I.C.E. was the name we came up with.
did not deny that they were secretly relocating significant numbers of foreign nationals into the heart of our country utilizing the Laughlin Air Force installation.
What concerns me is where all of these folks are headed.
I.C.E. has mentioned it several times.
We were promised more information, but we never received it.
Citizens, it appears, have no right to know where foreign nationals are being placed in the United States.
We know, courtesy to the Center for Immigration Studies, that the Biden administration has been moving illegal migrants all around the country for quite some time.
Keep an eye on this.
TODD BENSMAN, SENIOR NATIONAL FELLOW, CENTER FOR IMMIGRATION STUDIES: Most of the time, they’re boarding buses and headed towards America’s heartland.
A conveyor belt of commercial and charter buses, like this one in Del Rio, Texas, is transporting tens of thousands of Haitian, Venezuelan, Cuban, and Central American family units from the Texas, Arizona, and California borders northward, dropping them down in Florida and New Jersey, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and large cities i
CARLSON: Yeah, we’re revising the electoral map, aren’t we?
Are we serving the businesses that paid for your election?
We are, indeed.
Those are the buses you just saw.
The administration is now employing planes and Air Force bases, which should give you an idea of the scope of the situation.
What you’re witnessing is our country’s demographic transition, which is occurring without our permission and in defiance of our laws.
This is taking place.
Now it’s up to us to be quiet and accept it.
We’re aware that if we refuse, they’ll call us names, but no thanks.
What’s going on, what they’re doing, isn’t right.
It’s also a betrayal of democracy’s most basic promise, which is that voters have a say in who controls the government.
We, as citizens, have a right to know what they’re up to, and we’re going to try to find out.
We’re joined tonight by Stephen Miller, a former White House adviser with extensive expertise of immigration law on this topic.
Thank you so much for joining on, Stephen Miller.
FORMER WHITE HOUSE ADVISER STEPHEN MILLER: Thank you.
CARLSON: So it is now beyond debate that the Biden administration is resettling significant numbers of illegal immigrants in the country’s interior without the agreement of the communities in which they are resettling them.
Is that permissible?
MILLER: Well, it’s not legal at all.
That is in violation of a slew of immigration laws that spell out in great detail how you can enter the nation and how you can’t.
That is why my organization, America First Legal, recently argued in Federal Court alongside Texas that these regulations must be stopped.
So, in order to properly progress this story, I want your viewers to understand that what is happening today is unprecedented, and that the entire discourse about border security up to this point has been incorrect.
This isn’t about a government that can’t keep the border safe.
This is about an administration that has transformed our Border Patrol and I.C.E. in a very thoughtful, planned, deliberate, and painstaking manner.
transforming them into resettlement agency
It is the word that everyone should be familiar with and repeat.
This is a pre-planned relocation.
I believe it is the largest of its sort in world history in terms of the number of illegal border crossers resettled in the interior of our country in violation of basic law.
CARLSON: So there’s very little — I mean, you’ve got an organization that’s trying to stop this with the legislation.
It’s happening in real time, and it’s been going on for six months without the knowledge of the 320 million American citizens whose country this is, but there’s someone who can stop it, and that’s Greg Abbott, the Governor of Texas, who commands the Texas National Guard, and whose border, of course, many of these individuals are crossing.
Why wouldn’t he close the border with Mexico tonight and put a stop to it?
MILLER: Well, I would argue that Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution is the right constitutional remedy, which states that the government has a clear commitment to protect any state in the country from invasion and domestic violence.
It does not stipulate that this must be done by a nation-state actor.
To put it another way, the Constitution does not need a state-led invasion.
Any large-scale, unwelcome, uninvited entry into a country that is directed by a state would serve as the constitutional foundation for exactly what you’re saying.
I would also argue that if the Supreme Court had the moral guts to strike down this entire scheme, which is a flagrant breach of our entire Constitutional Republican form of government, it would present the Supreme Court with a constitutional predicate.
Let’s be clear: when Joe Biden placed his hand on the Bible and swore an oath to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution, as well as to secure a Republican form of government in every state, he has broken every single one of those promises.
I’ll also say it if that isn’t an impeachable offense, I’m not sure what is.
CARLSON: No, that’s correct, and you know this is central to their governing plans because when you mention it, they go crazy and call you all kinds of slurs, despite the fact that I don’t believe there is a big number of people in this country of any color or party affiliation who supports it.
Why isn’t there a bill in the United States if so many people support it?
Is it really necessary for Congress to accept a million more foreign nationals every six months?
MILLER: That’s right.
Why isn’t there — what they’re doing is doubling, tripling, whatever the number is at the end of the year — who knows, it just keeps getting higher and higher, there’s no ceiling to hit yet — the number of migrants being admitted into our nation every single year over the already sky-high levels approved by Federal law.
And you’re right: nobody is publicly stating, “America, here’s why we think we need millions and millions and millions more migrants every single year than we now have,” not Senator Manchin, not Senator Mark Kelly, not even Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer.
CARLSON: That’s right.
MILLER: By the way, if at all possible, we’d prefer them to have no health insurance, no college degree, and to rely on a vast number of Federal government benefits, including free health care services.
Nobody is making that basis because there isn’t and never will be a principled argument for it; and, to your point about race, Hispanic Americans, black Americans, Asian-Americans, white Americans — every type of American — and, by the way, every individual in every country in the world who has ever lived wants a secure border and a controlled immigration system.
CARLSON: You’re a white supremacist, right?
Yeah, it is a matter of permission.
Hey, if we want to do something, we should tell the public about it and have a discussion about it.
Let’s do it in a democratic manner.
They’re doing it in the way of an authoritarian regime, and if you disagree, you’ll suffer the consequences.
We’re not going to put up with it.
I appreciate you coming on tonight, Stephen; thank you.
MILLER: I appreciate it.
CARLSON: Well, the election was more than a half-year ago, and we haven’t spent much time discussing what happened at the time.
We want to be accountable.
We want to be factual, and we intend to be so.
Nevertheless, we’ve looked into what occurred in Fulton County, Georgia.
We now have some additional figures, thanks to a lawsuit, that show how Election Night unfolded at the vote counting centers.
It’s worth listening to.
After the break, we’ll tell you about it.
(COMMERCIAL BREAK) CARLSON: An alarm went off in a vast nondescript warehouse in Fulton County, Georgia, on a Saturday night in late May of this year.
The warehouse seemed an unusual location for a break-in.
Private security and local law enforcement, including armed deputies from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, were on the scene 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Any unauthorized person trying to enter from the outside would have to get past a locked 100-pound steel door as well as a maze of motion detectors — not easy — but someone tried nevertheless, and at precisely the right time, 20 minutes after the deputies in charge of protecting the warehouse left their posts.
Someone had unlocked the 100-pound door to the warehouse by the time those deputies returned to investigate the alert.
So, what transpired that evening?
And why is that?
We still have no idea.
It’s also unclear why the deputies left the warehouse, or who benefited from their absence.
We do know that several people may have attempted to enter the facility for various reasons.
The structure includes evidence that either validates or refutes the assertion that voting fraud influenced the outcome of Georgia’s 2020 election, depending on who you ask.
Joseph Biden won Georgia by a margin of less than 13,000 votes.
More than 140,000 absentee ballots are stored at that warehouse.
What’s more interesting is that Fulton County officials have refused to let the public examine any of these votes for inexplicable reasons.
Bob Cheeley, an attorney, has been advocating for greater transparency.
He has filed a lawsuit to gain access to those ballots.
He hasn’t seen all of them yet, but what he has seen so far requires an explanation.
We should all want to hear that answer, regardless of who we voted for.
You can’t have a democracy if people don’t trust the results of elections.
Many individuals in this country are beginning to doubt them.
The solution to that problem, which is a serious one, is not to scream at these individuals, label them as insane, or imprison them.
Telling the truth about what happened is the remedy.
Facts are the only way to rebuild trust in our system.
So, what are the facts concerning the Fulton County, Georgia election?
Therefore, this is the official version.
In May, the Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, Robb Pitts, claimed that looking at the ballots was unnecessary, and that even asking to look at the ballots was ludicrous, because there had previously been numerous recounts, all of which came to the same conclusion.
Here’s what Pitts said — and if it seems familiar when you hear it, it’s because so many other individuals in positions of authority have said something similar.
ROBB PITTS, FULTON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS: I mean, I’m very perplexed by this.
What are they looking for?
We’ve already had three counts.
Elections in Fulton County, Georgia, were open, fair, and transparent.
The results have been confirmed.
It’s over now that the election has been certified.
This will be the fourth one, and I can assure you that the outcomes will be exactly the same as they were for count one, count two, and count three.
Our elections are, once again, open, fair, and transparent.
CARLSON: “I can guarantee you.” We already know what happened because we’ve tallied those exact ballots four times.
The results of the election have been certified.
Put an end to it already.
That is the reason Fulton County has made in court to keep those ballots locked up in a warehouse, but it isn’t true.
Last November, it appears that there was significant voter fraud in Fulton County, Georgia.
That isn’t some sort of hoax.
When it comes to the 2020 election results, this show has always sought to be fact-based.
So here’s what we know right now, in terms of facts.
In Fulton County, at least 36 batches of mail-in ballots from the November election were twice tallied.
A total of over 4,000 votes were cast.
Such figures were obtained through a lawsuit filed by a group called Voter Georgia, which was joined by Bob Cheeley.
The final figure from the double counts we know about shows Joe Biden with almost 3,300 ballots and Donald Trump with 865 votes.
Before you dismiss Bob Cheeley and Voter GA as dishonest partisan actors, please in mind that the far-left “Atlanta Journal Constitution” appears to agree with this, at least in principle.
Hundreds of ballots were improperly copied, according to the newspaper’s independent assessment of the available digital ballot pictures.
What exactly does that imply?
So, here’s what it appears to be.
David Cross, a consultant with Voter GA, demonstrated how we can be assured that votes in Fulton County were counted more than once at a news conference yesterday.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) DAVID CROSS, CONSULTANT FOR VOTER GA: What I’m going to show you here are two ballots side by side, one of them is marked for Jason Shaw, it has a little squiggle mark next to it, and you can see it has the same mark on the second one, and the ballot image is stored up here on the top left.
Scanner 5162 is the one over here.
That’s scanner three, batch number 235, picture number 19, which corresponds to 234 image 59.
As a result, the identical ballot has been counted twice in the images and twice in the audit.
I’m not sure how that’s possible.
(END VIDEO CLIP) CARLSON: “How is it possible? I don’t know.” Every American should be curious because the answer goes to the heart of our democracy’s integrity.
This isn’t a case of a couple of ballots.
We’re talking about a large number of ballots, at least hundreds, with the ability to sway the election’s outcome.
Here’s another illustration:
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) CROSS: All right, so identical facts, number 234, picture number two, and 235, image number 61, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican, Republican
There’s no doubt that ballot was counted twice.
CARLSON: So, what’s the reason for this? (END VIDEO CLIP)
According to Fulton County, the anomalies you just witnessed on the screen were isolated events, a few of defective ballots.
That occurs frequently.
Any inaccuracies, according to the county, were discovered during prior recounts.
The problem is that neither of those assertions is correct.
Voter Georgia uncovered surveillance footage that purports to show significant numbers of ballots being scanned multiple times.
Pay attention to the clip we’re showing you to the woman at the counter who is dressed in yellow.
She slides ballots into a scanning machine, removes the ballots, and then re-inserts the same ballots, according to Voter Georgia.
This occurs on several occasions.
How many times were those ballots counted, exactly?
Was each vote counted many times?
That is a question that Fulton County will not answer.
Checking what are known as audit tally sheets is one technique to find out the answer.
Fulton County, for example, failed to furnish more than a hundred thousand of those tally sheets, including 50,000 for mail-in ballots, for months after the presidential election.
The result was astounding when Voter Georgia eventually compelled Fulton County to turn over the tally sheets.
“Seven faked report tally sheets with fabricated vote totals,” according to the audit.
A set of 59 genuine ballot images for Joe Biden and 42 for Donald Trump, for example, was reported as a hundred for Biden and zero for Trump.
The count sheets in the audit for the seven batches of ballot images containing 554 votes for Joe Biden, 140 votes for Donald Trump, and 11 votes for Joe Jorgensen were manipulated to reflect 850 votes for Biden, zero votes for Trump, and zero votes for Jorgensen.” Hey, did you just follow that?
We were able to collect images of the recount process for mail-in votes in Fulton County.
A whistleblower who took part in the recount took these images.
She stated that she had noticed something unusual while doing so.
There were no creases on any of the ballots she observed.
On your screen, you can now see piles of unfolded ballots.
That’s odd, considering mail-in ballots must be twisted in order to be mailed in the first place.
These ballots had obviously never been in an envelope.
Then the whistleblower saw something else: all of the ballots, according to the whistleblower, were filled out by a printer rather than by hand, and many of them favored the same candidates — Democrats including Joe Biden.
The recount also revealed a number of other apparent inconsistencies, according to GA.
“Almost 200 Fulton County mail-in ballot images had votes that were not included in the hand count audit findings for the November election,” according to the group’s audit. Why is that?
We have no idea.
Bear in mind that the election results in Georgia were decided by less than 13,000 votes.
It was a nail-biter of a race.
Every vote was significant.
There’s also this.
Mark Davis, an electoral expert, examined data from the Post Office.
He discovered that approximately 35,000 Georgia voters had moved out of their home county more than a month before the election.
Despite the fact that they were ineligible to vote, they did it nevertheless.
They continued to vote in their previous county.
That is against the law.
It’s not a minor matter; breaking election laws is something we should be concerned about.
Their vote should have been subtracted from the total under the law, but it was not.
Why are we so relaxed about it?
What makes us think we can get away with it?
We’re fine with it because we’ve been told we have to accept it.
If we inquire about what happened during the 2020 election, we are destroying democracy; and, of course, this is a complete reversal of the facts.
Democracy dies without answers to genuine questions such as the ones we just presented, and those are legitimate questions.
People begin to realize that the system they’ve been told is fair is actually rigged, and when they believe that, God alone knows what they’ll do next.
So, let’s figure out what happened.
Let’s find out right away.
Let’s find out without feeling embarrassed.
It is both our right and our responsibility to be informed.
Jon Voight is one of Hollywood’s most well-known performers.
We had a long conversation with him.
We thought we’d be talking about politics, but it went in a different path than we expected, and we’ve been thinking about it ever since.
That interview is coming up next.
(COMMERCIAL BREAK) CARLSON: Jon Voight is one of Hollywood’s most well-known actors.
We sat because he’s been famous for more than 50 years — and he’s a conservative.
There aren’t many, so we decided to ask him about what it’s like to be a conservative in Hollywood. That chat lasted about a minute before turning to him and his faith, and what it’s meant to him throughout his life.
It’s not something we anticipated to discuss, but we’re glad we did.
The complete chat can be found on FOX Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Today,” but here’s a sample.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) JON VOIGHT, ACTOR: At one point, I was in a lot of danger.
I had a divorce, some troubles, and I was living in this small place.
And I was in a lot of pain for a variety of reasons.
My job was in upheaval at the time, and a lot of things were going on, including my connection with my children and wife, among other things.
And I was on the floor, saying, “It’s so terrible, it’s so difficult.” I said it out loud, and I heard in my ear, “It’s supposed to be difficult.”
CARLSON: Can you picture a distinct voice telling you that?
“It’s supposed to be challenging,” you say, with knowledge and tenderness.
This voice, in particular, had a lot of resonance.
CARLSON: Whoa, that’s a powerful message.
It’s supposed to be challenging.
VOIGHT: It’s supposed to be challenging, right?
What do you think?
I mean, I was like, “What?” and I got up, and I can tell you, Tucker, that at that point, I understood what I was doing.
You know what I meant when I said, you know what I meant when I said, you know what I meant when I said, you know what I meant when I said
CARLSON: Of course.
VOIGHT: We know everything.
Everything is in the open.
I am well-known.
That is exactly what it meant to me.
CARLSON: Were you expecting this?
Were you pleading with God?
VOIGHT: Was it anything I expected?
Isn’t it true that I now have to go on with my life?
Yet I had a lot of energy.
It’s a nice feeling to know that someone is rooting for me.
It’s as if you’re saying, “Don’t give up.”
It’s as though you know there’s a reason for everything.
You know, you’ve got a ways to go, kid; you’ve got a long way to go.
Do you understand what I’m saying?
Whatever it meant — whatever you thought it meant — it meant it.
Do you see what I mean?
And I was in terrific shape, wow.
And the next morning, I’m not one of those people who prays with the expectation that anyone is listening.
CARLSON: Of course.
VOIGHT: I’m glad we’re covered now, man.
Everything we think, everything we say — it’s all a part of us.
You know how they say God sees every bird that falls from the sky?
CARLSON: Of course.
VOIGHT: This is us, the two kids, and we’re all well-known.
We’re being watched, helped, and loved, and we’re expected to rise and fight, to do something, to do what’s right, whatever it is.
There’s a reason for this.
And what’s the big issue if we’re here to learn our lessons and grow?
to provide for one another
To be able to assist you, you know.
This is what you figure out, but at the time, all I cared about was surviving, so the next morning, I get up and ask, “What have you got for me today?” And so, I turn on the radio, and this is what showed up — I promise this is what happened when I switched on the radio.
I’m having a good time, you know what I’m saying?
Because I don’t take myself too seriously, but it’s important to me.
“I’ll build a ladder to paradise with a new step every day,” the radio announces.
It’s yet another.
Please wait a moment.
What exactly is going on here?
That sort of thing happened to me for a few days.
Things happened to me, and then I started being drawn to certain things from that point on, and I’ve had a lot of experiences since then, but that was the beginning.
CARLSON: That’s when you realize God is real, that He knows who you are, and that He is on your side.
CARLSON: Did that have any ramifications?
VOIGHT: Well, if I’m going to be a conduit for God, I had to straighten out. I mean, I had to be cleaner than I was.
Do you get what I’m saying?
I’d best be a good person.
CARLSON: How difficult was it?
VOIGHT: You know, I’ve always had positive role models throughout my life.
As I already stated, my father was a very upright man.
I’ve had a lot of excellent people in my life, including my mother, so I just got off course a little bit and realized it at the time, and I’ve worked hard since then to be a better person.
CARLSON: How did that affect your happiness levels and how you feel on a daily basis?
VOIGHT: That’s quite intriguing.
You know, I was just asked about something a couple of days ago, and I answered, “Then I have fear of the Lord.”
You know how they say you should fear the Lord?
CARLSON: Of course.
VOIGHT: I’ve figured it out.
I’m terribly scared.
Isn’t it true that I’m frightened of offending God?
God is everything, after all.
God is a loving God.
God is all of these lovely things — beauty — everything.
And I’m going to have to — how am I going to live up to that?
I’m in desperate need of assistance.
But, I believe that is the fear of the Lord.
You know what I’m talking about when I say it keeps you on track?
It’s not a dread of being attacked by something; it’s a fear of being attacked by anything.
It’s a dread of offending, a fear of failing to live up to expectations.
CARLSON: Of course.
VOIGHT: A fear of making a terrible mistake, of doing the wrong thing.
Well, you already know all of that, but I’ve been a happier fellow.
I’m a much happier person — I mean, I don’t know what I look like right now, but I’m a happy person.
(END VIDEO CLIP) CARLSON: What a conversation, Jon Voight.
It’s not that you’re amazing, or that you’re doing a great job when God speaks to you.
“It’s supposed to be challenging,” it says, and I’ve been thinking about it since.
That conversation lasted about an hour, and we covered a wide range of topics.
It was fantastic.
Right now, you can watch the entire episode on foxnation.com.
You may have observed that many people in the administration, including Joe Biden, are highly fixated on a specific conflict, the Civil War, which is the only one that has ever occurred between Americans on our own territory.
There was a positive and negative side to everything.
Try to figure out which side they believe you’re on.
Next, we’ll talk about that story.
CARLSON: This is a FOX News alert. (COMMERCIAL BREAK)
We informed you at the outset of the show that the same Pentagon that refused to guard our borders during the previous government is now supporting this administration, the Biden administration, in illegally transferring illegal migrants across the country using military resources, notably at Laughlin Air Force Base, but possibly not just there.
So, that’s what we said at the start.
During the presentation, we received a statement from I.C.E.
validating what we previously stated
There have been flights of illegal immigrants for nationals from Laughlin Air Force Base to other destinations within the United States, according to the following: “On June 17, 2021, a memorandum of agreement or MOA between D.H.S. and D.H.S. and D.H.S. and D.H.S. and D.H.S. and D.H.S. and D.H.S. and D.H.S. and D.H.S. and
and the DoD was signed and finalized by all parties.” Wish we’d known back then.
“On June 29, 2021, I.C.E. will celebrate its 25th anniversary.”
For the first time, air operations use Laughlin Air Force Base in accordance with the MOA to transfer noncitizens from C.B.P.
I.C.E. is in charge of custody.
Approximately 780 noncitizens (here unlawfully) have been transported via I.C.E. since June 29th.
I.C.E. six I.C.E. six I.C.E. six I.

“Collaboration with Federal partners enables I.C.E,” she noted.
to transfer non-citizens to I.C.E. in a secure and compassionate manner
It will be determined which field offices will have the appropriate level of custody and oversight.
Air operates selfless border flights that transport migrants from C.B.P. to the United States.
I.C.E. is in charge of custody.
end quote” custody”
The bureaucratic statement has come to an end.
Yet there are still more problems, such as why one of their military resources is being utilized to undertake this operation, which most Americans are unaware of, which they did not authorize to, which Congress never voted on, and which is certainly unlawful.
And, maybe more importantly, where are these folks headed?
They’re being transferred to a different type of custody, after which their fate will be decided.
But what happened to them?
What communities were they assigned to?
How much money did the federal government spend on this?
Do the people who live in the areas where they were placed have any say in the matter?
And how many are there in total?
Fewer than 800 people were reported missing from Laughlin Air Force Base between those periods, but what is the national total?
Why aren’t we aware of this?
What country is this, exactly?
Who’s the boss?
If you care about democracy, which they plainly don’t, you can’t just change the complexion of the country while breaking Federal law and without asking the people’s approval.
Maybe we’ll get some answers right away.
Maybe the Republicans in Congress will wake up and do something about it.
I understand that we are concerned about Cuba, but what about our own country?
Finally, we have some breaking news.
Britney Spears’ life and finances have been legally controlled by conservatorship for more than a decade, and her father was the one who brought it up before the event.
There have been significant changes in the campaign to terminate that agreement today.
Trace Gallagher of FOX News has the scoop right now.
TRACE GALLAGHER, FOX NEWS CHANNEL CORRESPONDENT: Tucker, how are you doing today?
The major news of the day is that Britney Spears will finally be able to employ her own attorney, according to a judge.
The musician attended the hearing by cell phone, flooding the courtroom with noises of rage, tears, and even profanity.
Spears informed the judge that she wants her father removed as her conservator and charged with conservatee abuse.
“I was always incredibly terrified of my dad and worried he was going to show up drunk someplace,” she said, quoting here, “I was always extremely scared of my dad and worried he was going to show up drunk somewhere.” She then talked about things she is not allowed to do like drive and take vitamins, saying quote, “That’s not abuse, but that’s effing cruelty.”
Spear claims to be optimistic about the future and that she is expecting a marriage proposal from her lover.
If there’s any breaking Britney News, Tucker, don’t worry; I’ll be pleased to step back in.
CARLSON: Thank you, Trace Gallagher.
That’s not a story we expected to be interested in covering, but it turns out to be fascinating.
And I believe it is likely to be relevant to all of us.
We’ve regained command.
Is that clear?
You may have observed that the Biden administration, as well as some members of Congress, are heavily invested in the Civil War.
They aren’t studying Shelby Foote’s past.
They’re accusing you of being a Confederate and stating that requiring voter ID is the greatest threat to our country since Shiloh and Gettysburg.
But, the greatest threat since the Civil War was the January 6 insurgency, which we’re trying to keep track of here.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, JOE BIDEN (D): This is the biggest attack on our democracy since the Civil War.
CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): This is the most serious attempt at insurgency since the Civil War.
WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY JEN PSAKI: This is the most serious danger to our democracy since the Civil War.
CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC ANCHOR: The biggest attack on American democracy, arguably probably after the Civil War. ANDERSON COOPER, CNN ANCHOR: A hundred and fifty days since the worst single act of political violence since the Civil War.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This is the worst threat to our democracy since the Civil War, in my opinion.
BIDEN: Our democracy is being put to its most severe test since the Civil War.
That isn’t hyperbole; it has been true since the Civil War.
CARLSON: It’s not hyperbole, but it’s more prevalent than we thought.
There are many things that are as awful as the Civil War.
How many are there?
Mark Steyn has compiled a list of his favorite books.
He’ll read it to us tonight.
Mark, it’s fantastic to see you again.
AUTHOR AND COLUMNIST MARK STEYN: It’s almost as though they want a Civil War.
“I mean, all of this is nonsense,” Anderson Cooper says, “the biggest act of political violence since the Civil War,” and Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and Kennedy respond, “What am I? Chopped liver?” You wouldn’t ordinarily compare an insurgency or citizenship laws to a Civil War.
They’re doing this because they want another Civil War, but they don’t want to fight it.
They’d rather have a media-driven Civil War that turns half of the country into Confederate statues that are pulled down and thrown into the trash bin of history.
This is absurd, and what’s even more absurd is that on January 6th, half of the respectable right sided with the moronic Democrat media narratives and assisted them in weaponizing it.
CARLSON: They did, for sure.
I need to see things from a human perspective, perhaps as a citizen.
Now, if you’re President, the last thing you’d compare a current political argument to is the Civil War, and the last phrase you’d ever use in a speech would be “Civil War.”
I mean, I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s harmful to speak in that manner.
Why is he acting in this manner?
STEYN: Well, because, as I said, I believe they’re doing this to set up the conditions for a cold Civil War.
They’ve arrived to the point in the previous Civil War where they believe it’s time for one side to triumph and the other to lose, but as you point out, this is highly irresponsible.
Because he’s the only person you’ve heard of, it’s the domestic version of drawing foolish Hitler parallels.
They’re doing it because they’re well aware that it demonizes half of the population.
CARLSON: Well, I have a sense they’re planning a really obnoxious reconstruction.
It’s lovely to see you tonight, Mark Steyn.
STEYN: Thank you very much, Tucker.
CARLSON: So the Secretary of State, who is truly despicable, has just ordered a new investigation, not against the Chinese government or any other foreign government, but into the United States. He told the United Nations that the US should be investigated for your faults.
We’ll tell you what those sins are, but you probably already know.
We’ll be back in a minute.
(COMMERCIAL BREAK) CARLSON: So, the Trump administration’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas Greenfield, officially declared the Constitution to be a white supremacist instrument in April.
The Secretary of State, Tony Blinken, then posted a video explaining why you live in a racist country a month later, in an unconnected occurrence.
ANTONY BLINKEN, ANTONY BLINKEN, ANTONY BLINKEN, ANTONY BLINKEN, ANTONY BLINKEN, ANTONY BLINKEN
SECRETARY OF STATE: In order for the United States to be a global leader in human rights, we must confront the reality of racism and bigotry here at home.
We can’t brush our flaws under the rug or act as if they don’t exist.
We must confront them frankly and honestly, even if it is unpleasant and painful.
It is how we demonstrate our commitment to our principles.
CARLSON: So he’s not including himself in that, of course, the problem is you, and now Tony Blinken has asked the UN to examine our country for its systemic racism.
James Craig is a former Detroit, Michigan police chief.
He’ll be joining us tonight.
Thank you so much for coming on, Chief.
As a result, there are numerous issues in the world.
I’m not sure we need someone like Zimbabwe’s representative to the United Nations.
to look at our transgressions
What are your thoughts?
JAMES CRAIG, FORMER DETROIT POLICE CHIEF: Tucker, it is completely incorrect.
It is erroneous and irresponsible.
They should simply travel to Cuba.
That is exactly what they should do.
Visit Cuba and learn about the situation there.
We don’t require this.
It is divisive, and it serves the interests of the status quo and the liberal elite.
That is precisely what it accomplishes.
CARLSON: That’s correct.
It is advantageous to the status quo.
That, I believe, is an extremely essential point to make.
They aren’t really advocating for change.
I believe they are attempting to halt change.
It’s a brilliant idea.
CRAIG: You know, what we’re going through is sad.
That issue feels so much like critical race theory, and I’ve got to tell you, I’m unapologetic about it.
This is incorrect.
It’s not supposed to happen.
Perhaps they should summon me and delegate the investigation to me.
We know that the vast majority of American cops execute their jobs correctly.
However, Tucker, I understand we’re running out of time.
Before I end this, I have one last thing to say.
I’m hoping we’ll be able to do it again next week.
What’s more, guess what?
I’m about to make an critical statement for Michigan’s future, and I promised you I’d do it on your show.
CARLSON: Yeah, I adore that state; I married a girl from there, and that state is in desperate need of new leadership.
This is not a ruse, and if you announce for Governor, we would be ecstatic, as will the desperate but hopeful folks of Michigan.
Well, thank you, Chief.
I’m hoping that’s the case.
And if that’s the case, we’ll see you next week.
It’s wonderful to see you tonight.
CRAIG: I’ve decided to appear on your show.
That is my promise to you.
Remember what we mentioned a few weeks ago?
It’s something I’m going to do on your show.
CARLSON: Of course.
No state, by the way, need better leadership than yours.
James Craig, the city of Detroit’s former police chief
CRAIG: You’re welcome, Tucker.
Thank you very much.
CARLSON: I appreciate it.
Regrettably, we’re at a crossroads, but we’ll be back.
In the meantime, foxnation.com has a new “Tucker Carlson Today” episode with Jon Voight.
Meanwhile, have a wonderful evening.
We’ll see you again tomorrow, which is Thursday by our reckoning.
It will be a different day, but our perspective on the world will not alter, which we believe is a good thing.
Have a wonderful evening.
Sean Hannity is now in charge.
