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
One week after debating Tucker Carlson on the merits of his city's sanctuary policy, Mayor Virgil Bernero (D-Lansing) returned to break some news on that front. Bernero said that after "democracy in action," he and his city council are reconsidering their decision to become a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. The council was meeting on the issue as Bernero spoke on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." However, he said that his initial policy was not an example of the liberal sanctuary city policies created by some other municipalities. He said there is no evidence that Michigan's capital is "opening the floodgates" to illegal immigrants as some have characterized. Bernero said he agreed with President Trump's campaign promise to rid the country of "bad hombres" from elsewhere i...
Tucker Carlson debated a Democratic congressman over the merits of President Trump's missile strike against a Syrian airfield. Congressman Seth Moulton (D-Mass.), a former Marine Corps officer, said he agreed with Trump's action in response to a gas attack on Syrian civilians. However, he said Congress should still investigate whether Trump is working in some level of coordination with the Russians. Moulton acknowledged that by striking back against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Trump was effectively working against the Russians. But he noted the U.S. military got the Kremlin's forces out of the base before the strike. He said that some people could see such a move as an "elaborate ruse" to relieve pressure from Democrats over his alleged Russian ties. "Wher...
A Florida sheriff's stern message to drug dealers is going viral after the release of a video featuring undercover officers wearing ski masks. "To the dealers that are pushing this poison, I have a message for you: we’re coming for you," said Lake County Sheriff Peyton Grinnell. Grinnell said his office is receiving more and more calls about heroin-related overdoses, urging residents to call in tips about suspected drug dealers. Speaking to the dealers in the county, he said undercover officers have already bought drugs from some of them and arrest warrants were being finalized. The video has generated some backlash on social media, with critics comparing it to ISIS and arguing that it points to police departments becoming too militarized. Let us know your thoughts
Chemical attack ... At least 100 people were killed in what doctors say could be a nerve gas attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun in the rebel-held Idlib province. Victims showed signs of suffocation, convulsions, foaming at the mouth, and pupil constriction. Witnesses said the attack was carried out by either Russian or Syrian Sukhoi jets. Both Moscow and Damascus have denied responsibility. Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) says that President Trump must come out with a strong response. On "America's Newsroom" today, said it's clear that President Obama's "disastrous" policy in Syria - including his infamous "red line - has put Trump in a difficult spot. "But we keep hearing there's a new sheriff in town. Well, the new sheriff has to get serious about rounding
Immigration Policies ... Massachusetts State Rep. Michelle DuBois (D) caused a major controversy when she posted an online warning to illegal immigrants about an upcoming ICE "raid" in the area. Many critics have said that DuBois' warning did a disservice to the community by creating a fear of law enforcement. One of DuBois' fellow Massachusetts lawmakers, however, is supporting her and pushing a bill to make Massachusetts a sanctuary state. Jamie Eldridge, a Democratic state senator, told Tucker Carlson tonight that DuBois was just looking out for the best interests of her community, including undocumented immigrants. "Isn't it a little weird for lawmakers to be encouraging people to ignore the law?" Tucker asked. "How would you feel if the governor of Massachusetts
Battles with Democratic Party In a radio interview, Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) said he has seen classified reports with "damning evidence" of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. He thanked journalists who have released stories relevant to those allegations, on the Michaelangelo Signorile Show. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Pocan called for an independent commission to investigate Russian interference after he said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) "stumbled" through the investigative process. battles Pocan said that anyone who read the reports he has seen, like Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), would have the "natural reaction" of keeping Russian sanctions, which the Trump administration slackened. He called for that report to be declassifi
"This isn't a DICTATORSHIP" Friday’s press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was inundated with questions on the floundering GOP health care bill, including, if it does fail to garner enough support — something that seems likely given the bill lacks over 30 needed votes — who is to blame. While refusing to admit the bill may fail, Spicer responded to a question about if the buck stopped with Trump by saying this: “Like I said earlier, you can’t force someone to vote a certain way. I think in the sense that…he has done every single thing, the answer is ‘yes.'” He then continued on: “At the end of the day, this isn’t a dictatorship.” Then, echoing earlier comments from Trump that if the GOP members do not vote for the bill they may risk not getting re-elected, Spicer a
Spying on Trump Team Tucker Carlson clashed with a Democratic strategist tonight over the bombshell charges that the Obama administration collected and spread information from surveillance of President Trump’s transition team. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Wednesday that some of the communications of the Trump transition team were "monitored" after the election as part of an "incidental collection." Tucker pointed out that the reaction to this whole story has been extremely partisan, with Democrats sounding the alarm about possible ties between the Trump team and Russia, and Republicans focusing on the sources of the illegal intelligence leaks. "Both may be missing the actual scandal, which the political use of classified intell
Rape - Tucker Carlson - David Moyse Tucker Carlson pressed the defense attorney for an illegal immigrant who is accused in the rape of a 14-year-old Maryland girl in a boys' bathroom at Rockville High School. Two teenage boys, 18 and 17, are accused in the rape. One of the two, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, is an undocumented immigrant. His attorney, David Moyse, confirmed that he plans to argue the sexual encounter was consensual, "not a rape in any sense." Carlson said the assertion sounds "insane." Moyse agreed that it seems "horrible" that it would happen in a school, but that doesn't mean it was "forced" or illegal. Carlson said that is "in effect, an attack on this girl who told authorities that she was raped." "Is your argument going to be that she invite
Karen Tumlin Tucker Carlson interviewed Karen Tumlin of the National Immigration Law Center. Before the show aired, Tumlin trolled those who’d called for a boycott of Hawaii after a federal judge there blocked President Trump’s revised travel ban from going into effect nationwide: Tucker Carlson debates Karen Tumlin on Travel Ban, you need to see this.
