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
trump ... In light of Fox News' report that former National Security Adviser Susan Rice ordered the 'unmasking' of Trump associates mentioned in surveillance activity, Tucker Carlson pressed another former Obama aide for further explanation. Carlson asked former Obama campaign adviser David Tafuri why Rice would "lie" about her role in the unmasking of people in Trump's orbit. Tafuri said he didn't know why Rice said that and wasn't sure that she was lying at the time. He said it is legal for citizens to be caught in surveillance of foreign entities or for their names to be 'unmasked' if there is a specific procedural reason for it. Carlson said that the report showed the surveillance material had little to do with the investigation into whether the Trump campaign collud...
Mankind ... A Northern Arizona University student had her grade docked by her professor for using the word "mankind" in a paper. Cailin Jeffers, an English major at NAU, was penalized one point out of a possible 50 by English professor Dr. Anne Scott for not using a gender-neutral term, Campus Reform reported. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Jeffers said she had a discussion with Scott, who claimed that type of "gendered language" is sexist, oppressive and anti-woman. Tucker created a hypothetical scenario: If a student in Scott's class wore a burka because she wasn't allowed to show her hair to men, would Scott declare that sexist? "She wouldn't say a thing about it," Jeffers said. "I have no idea why feminists are obsessing over tiny, little microaggressions such as is
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
Republicans Started Acting Like Democrats Reacting to news that Massachusetts State Rep. Michelle DuBois (D-Brockton) allegedly tipped off illegal immigrants to impending ICE raids, Tucker Carlson asked what the response would be if Republicans did something similar. Carlson said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that it was "ironic" and "reckless" that DuBois, a lawmaker, would invite people to defy or ignore laws. "We live in a society based on the expectation that good people will follow rules and those who don't will be punished," he said. He noted the rule of law is what allows Americans to have a bank account, be able to eat food without fear of being poisoned, and so forth. "Undermine [the rule of law] and at some point civilization starts to fall apart," he said. He...
Tucker Carlson annihilated a liberal law professor from NYC who supports ‘sanctuary cities’ which ultimately exploits low-wage labor. Sanctuary Cities ‘Do you ever think ‘how did I get in this place’? OUCH! Tucker Carlson: “How did you, a liberal law professor from New York City wind up the spokesman for big employers who exploit low-wage labor? How did that..do you ever think like how did I get in this place? You are defending agricultural and service sector employers who pay low wages. Did you think you were going to wind up in that place when you were a kid?” Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark! This is why we love Tucker Carlson. He shares the same frustrations that we do with these lunatic liberals. I do wonder if they actually know what they are doing or if the mental disorder o
Tucker Carlson President Donald Trump’s proposed budget calls for eliminating federal programs for the arts and humanities, including the National Endowment for the Arts. Tucker Carlson says he is fine with these cuts because organizations like the NEA are essentially "welfare for rich, liberal elites." Robin Bronk, CEO of the Creative Coalition, joined Tucker tonight to debate the importance of federal funding for the arts. Tucker asked her why taxpayers should be "subsidizing entertainment for rich people" in a time of budget deficits. Bronk argued that the NEA - which takes up a tiny fraction of the federal budget - has given grants to every congressional district in the U.S., not just the rich ones. She added that money put into the arts actually results in a st
It's been less than 12 hours since black queer love story Moonlight won best picture at the Academy Awards, and some viewers are already saying the victory was undeserved. On Monday morning's Fox & Friends, guest Tucker Carlson — the Fox News pundit Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca called a "partisan hack" on live TV — said that Moonlight only won because of Hollywood's desire to make a political statement. "It was foregone," Carlson said. "You knew that Moonlight had to win because you knew what the film was about. And that's part of the problem with Hollywood. Tons of really talented people there, brilliant at making movies. But the second you feel a political imperative, it destroys your art. The second you feel like you need to elevate the country, you become overbearing and pomp
Yesterday, Connecticut’s governor, Dannel Malloy, made headlines by telling cops in his state they do not have to comply with the Donald Trump administration’s new requests to detain undocumented immigrants. (When current Vice President Mike Pence was the governor of Indiana, Malloy denounced him for rerouting refugee families from the state, so this isn’t very surprising.) On Fox News this evening, Tucker Carlson went head-to-head with Malloy. “The President can’t order us to do federal work,” the governor said. “Quite frankly, the federal government should do its own job and get it done.” Carlson and Malloy continued to butt heads over the economic condition of Connecticut, but Malloy was insistent that it’s possible for him to care about the economy and current immigration
Tucker Carlson was joined tonight by a civil rights leader who says that black males are disproportionately hurt by illegal immigration. Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, explained that black males are more likely to experience competition from illegal immigrants. "It's Econ 101, Tucker. When you have an oversupply of labor, the price of labor is going to be depressed," Kirsanow said, adding that there's a striking oversupply of low-skill labor. He noted that this doesn't effect just black males, but all low-skilled American workers. He said that black males, however, are disproportionately concentrated in low-skill labor markets, which is also where the bulk of legal and illegal immigrants over the past 20 years are concentrated. "We're tal
Tucker Carlson went on Fox & Friends this morning to explain that all the attention his segment on Sweden got this weekend, misses the point. “50 years of immigration policy is coming to flower in Eurpoe,” Carlson explained about the Friday segment, which was cited by Pres. Trump on Saturday, and has been torn apart by much of the media in both the U.S. and Sweden since. The Fox & Friends crew also turned the criticism of Trump’s remarks back on the media, saying “mainstream media went crazy about it,” before playing clips from this morning’s Good Morning America, Today show and CNN. “Look, the president ought to be precise in what he says, there should be no confusion about what he means,” said Carlson, adding, “that analysis, however, is so stupid it’s hard to be
