Fabio, the Italian-born male model who has adorned the covers of countless romance novels, only became an American citizen last year, but he's lived in Californi for years. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Fabio lamented that The Sunshine State is becoming unlivable thanks to liberal policies, particularly those involving crime and law enforcement. "California is a mess," Fabio said. "Coming from Europe, I already saw this movie before." He said that as the national debate about policing in America rages, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has taken the side of criminals over the police. Fabio accused Brown of misleading the public about Proposition 57, the governor's plan to shrink the state's prison population by releasing non-violent criminals. "If you check Prop 57, the
Murdering People ... Tucker Carlson debated an immigration attorney tonight over what steps can or should be taken to combat illegal immigrant crime. Patrick Young was one of the protesters who gathered on Long Island Friday to protest Attorney General Jeff Sessions as he delivered remarks to law enforcement on gang violence. Sessions said he plans to eradicate the violent MS-13 gang by cracking down on illegal immigration. Young argued that the proper way to fight MS-13 is to have the immigrant community work with law enforcement, and that won't happen if Sessions and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) get involved. He said if we "stigmatize" all immigrants - legal or illegal - it only makes those communities and all Americans less safe. Tucker pointed out that 92
illegally come with fake social security number .. Tucker Carlson debated a woman who came to the U.S. as a young illegal immigrant and later attained citizenship status and criticized President Trump's planned border wall. Julissa Arce said she used a fake social security number to get a job in the United States, and later worked her way up to a vice presidential position at Goldman Sachs. Carlson asked if Arce committed identity theft to get her job, but she said she simply made up the numbers. He noted that falsifying social security documentation is a felony. She said she did not want to use a fake social security number but said it was one of the only ways for her to get ahead in the business world. Arce said she was fortunate to marry an American and become...
On tax day, most Americans send the government 10 to 40 percent of their income to fund the bureaucracy, and one professor says that's not enough for some tax brackets. Occidental College Professor Caroline Heldman wants the "one-percent" to pay taxes at rates of 80 percent or more, saying they don't yet pay "their fair share." Heldman said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that ultra-wealthy individuals paid as much as 90 percent in taxes under Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy. She said that returning to these high tax rates would ensure a proper social safety net and education system. Tucker Carlson countered that Americans already pay more than most other countries in the world for social programs and schooling. "Rich people aren't held to the same standards," Heldman said. " t...
Tucker Carlson debated a professor who said that if some Americans were less "ignorant" of the facts surrounding immigration, they would become more in favor of it. Ilya Somin, who teaches at the Antonin Scalia Law School of George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., said not all immigration opponents are ignorant, but the majority are. He said that due to citizens' busy lives they do not have time to research statistics like comparative crime rates versus American citizens. Carlson said that in many immigrant-heavy areas like California and New York, the welfare states have bloated over the last several years. Somin responded that Texas is an example of a state with high immigrant populations but steady welfare and crime statistics. Carlson said that many immigrant groups...
Muslim During the April 14th broadcast of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, host Tucker Carlson devoted a short segment to a case of female genital mutilation in Detroit. While the point of the segment seemed to be to highlight the situation while simultaneously calling out American feminists for their silence on this issue, it seems that another message may have been sent to viewers. Early in the piece, around 12 seconds in, an image of a star and crescent — the familiar iconography of Islam — could be briefly seen flashed over a picture of the doctor reportedly involved in the alleged mutilation. Below is a screen capture of that moment: Was this an attempt to subliminally broadcast an anti-Muslim message to Tucker’s viewers? Considering that the segment it
MS-13 gang Fox News host Tucker Carlson made the argument Thursday night that the MS-13 criminal gang that has wreaked havoc on inner cities across the country poses “a far greater threat” to Americans than the Islamic State terrorist group. Speaking on his eponymous TV news program, Mr. Carlson said the ISIS-inspired terrorist attacks in Orlando, San Bernardino and Chattanooga led to the deaths of 68 people, but that is “nothing compared” to the murders carried out by MS-13 members. “That organization, a mostly immigrant street gang, is a far greater threat to your life than ISIS is. It’s the numbers,” he said in a clip posted by Breitbart. Mr. Carlson mentioned several MS-13-related murders in New York that have popped up in the news recently, including the sl
Gas Attack A Republican congressman is skeptical of the Trump administration's conclusion that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad carried out a chemical attack against his own people. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) told Tucker Carlson that he remains unconvinced that Assad was behind the attack, calling on the White House to put forth more evidence. "Truth is the first casualty of war," he said, adding that the U.S., Russia and Syria will all have their own versions of what happened. "And then there's gonna be the truth in there. We haven't been provided the details," he added. Earlier this week, Defense Secretary James Mattis said "there is no doubt" that Assad’s regime is responsible for the chemical attack. "I have personally reviewed the intelligence and there i
Economist Ray Keating was one of nearly 1,500 economists who signed a letter to President Trump and congressional leaders saying immigration is good for the U.S. economy. The letter argues that immigrants have a positive effect on job creation by creating entrepreneurs who hire American workers, they offset the retirement of the Baby Boomer population, they bring in diverse skill sets that help companies grow, and they drive economic growth in job-creating industries like science and technology. Tucker Carlson debated Keating on Fox News Channel tonight, accusing him of making a "silly" assumption: that all immigrants are the same. "The value of a software engineer is different than that of a laborer. Henry Ford is different from members of MS-13. It depends upon the kind
Us forces have dropped what is known as the "mother of all bombs" in Afghanistan. The device is the largest non-nuclear device in the Air Force arsenal, Fox News' Jennifer Griffin reported. It was dropped in Nangarhar Province, an eastern area near the Pakistan border. It's the first time the 21,000-pound ordnance has been used in combat, said Griffin. The device, developed in 2003 by the U.S. Air Force, is called the M.O.A.B, short for Massive Ordnance Air Blast. It's often referred to as the "mother of all bombs." The attack was launched in an area where a U.S. Green Beret was killed Saturday by small-arms fire while operating against ISIS targets. us forces U.S. forces have dropped what is known as the "mother of all bombs" in Afghanistan.
