services -- oh, we are done. >> ben: it's a whole thing, we could spend a whole show on it, thank you so much for joining me. >> it's a pleasure. >> ben: thank you for watching "fox news primetime," i am then dominates. we will be back tomorrow night at 7:00. until then be lovers for f and anxious for the fray. tucker carlson is up next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." all of a sudden it's pretty easy for people to move around the world and all of a sudden they are. poor people moving from poor countries across the globe into rich countries. why wouldn't they? and again, that's what's happening. back in 2015, more than a million illegal migrants flooded into europe and many of them came matt came to hungary, where we are right now. it was a crisis for the continent but alone in europe,
hungary figured out how to solve the problem in a way that we have not figured out here in the united states. how did hungary do that? how did it preserve its borders and its society? what can we learn from that? today we took a trip to find out and we will show you what we found out in just a minute. also, the woes for the country festive his creepiest governor, that would be governor andrew cuomo of new york, are compounded today, getting even more painful and yet at the same time more amusing. he's even being stabbed in the front by his allies at cnn and we've got that tape for you. but first tonight -- good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." on new year's day of this year, rochelle walensky was just a college professor in massachusetts. you would almost certainly never heard of her. you deftly didn't vote for her at any point because she had never run for office. as of january 1st, her political power was precisely the same as yours and everyone else's in this supposedly self-governing republic. rochelle wilensky had one vote out of a nation of 320 million
people. and then, just a few weeks later, everything changed for her and for the rest of us. joe biden appointed her to run the centers for disease control and prevention in atlanta. at the time it did not seem like a huge deal. the cdc is not a legislative body, it's a public health bureau originally designed to fight malaria and it did a good job. the cdc now gathers information about diseases and then releases guidance about those diseases to the public. that's what it does. the cdc does not make laws in this country. it's not allowed to. under the u.s. constitution, making laws is the exclusive role of the congress. you vote for your senators and your congressman, and they decide what the rules are. that's known as representative democracy. it's been our system for nearly 250 years. but apparently it's now over. rochelle wilensky now makes our laws. she announced today that she has decided to nationalize america's rental properties, millions and
millions of them from maine to california. tenants are no longer required to pay their rent. property owners cannot evict them under any circumstances. making someone pay to live on your property is now a federal crime. try it, and you could wind up in prison with hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. at the same time you should no, property owners will still be required to pay the banks that hold their mortgages. of there is no moratorium on mortgages. why? the banks are huge democratic donors and they are getting the treatment that they paid for. sandy cortez and "the squad" are not calling for the banks to do their part, so they are not. it's property owners who will suffer. many of the members of the rapidly disappearing american middle class. it's hard to overstate what a momentous change this is. it means among other things that private property no longer exists in the united states. you thought you owned your home. not anymore. rochelle walensky does. she'll decide who can live
there, under what circumstances, and for how long. is this a good idea? of course not. it's totalitarian, but there's an even more pressing question at the center of this, a principal. a principle that defines what kind of country this is and what kind of country it will be going forward. and the question is this. where did rochelle walensky get the power to do this? to suspend private property rights in america? and the answer is, she simply asserted the power. wilensky claimed she had the authority and no one stopped her from exercising it. this morning she signed an official-looking order declaring the hurricane is now the law, and so it is the law. but wait, you say, that doesn't seem very american. shouldn't somebody vote on this? if we are going to continue to pretend this is a democracy, and you hear that on television constantly, then shouldn't our elected lawmakers make the laws? no, and they're not going to. nancy pelosi has refused to call
a vote on the matter and she runs the congress, she decides. meanwhile, most republican's haven't said a word about it. and that means that an unelected college professor you've never heard of six months ago is now in charge of your country. if you're wondering how all of this can possibly be legal, rest assured that it's not legal. it's not even arguably legal. we know that for a fact. the supreme court has just ruled on this specific question. the court found that the cdc does not have the right to institute a nationwide eviction moratorium, period. only congress can do that. the court didn't make its gas on their view of this, the court put this in writing in the clearest possible language, there's no debate about that. the biden demonstration just ignored what the court says. how can they do that? well, congresswoman bass seen water's of los angeles understands exactly how they did it. hardly a genius, she's likely never read an entire book. if but one thing maxine waters knows very well is how third
world regimes operate. when you want something, you simply take it. you've got the guns, was going to stop you? might makes right, the fidel castro method. waters explained that out loud today as she pushed rochelle walensky to suspend private property. "i don't buy that the cdc can't extend the eviction moratorium," waters wrote on twitter. perfectly aware that the supreme court has already prohibited this. who is going to stop them, who is going to penalize them? good question, nobody, and nancy pelosi knows that too. pelosi knows that what rochelle walensky just did is illegal by definition. she also understands that openly ignoring a supreme court ruling will mean the end of our current system, and that's fine with nancy pelosi." the cdc has the power to extend the eviction moratorium," pelosi said. pelosi didn't explain where that power might come from. she simply declared that it might exist, as dictators do. even joe biden, who knows very
little, knows that what is it administration has just done as against the law. he said that on camera yesterday. >> president biden: i've sought out constitutional scholars to determine what is the best possibility that would come from executive action under the cdc's judgment, what could they do that is most likely to pass muster constitutionally? the bulk of the constitutional scholarship says that it's not likely to pass constitutional muster. number one. but there are several key scholars who think that it may and it's worth the effort. >> tucker: so the eviction moratorium has been in place for months. it has just been extended as of today. so people have debated this, jurists have weighed in on it,
and so we know it won't "pass constitutional muster," says joe biden. in other words, it's illegal. if the people doing it are criminals. that's the word we use for people who knowingly break the law. but like most criminals are not embarrassed by breaking the law, that's what they do. watch joe biden's senior advisor, a thoroughly oily character called gene sperling, tell you that the rule of law just isn't relevant here. >> to date, the cdc director and her team have been unable to find legal authority, even for a more targeted eviction moratorium that would focus just on counties with higher rates of covid spread. this is a president who really understands the heartbreak of eviction. he is -- the reason why he is pressing and pressing, even when legal authority looks slim, is because he wants to make sure we
have explored every potential authority. >> tucker: these people are so filthy, but they are self-righteous. did you catch that? we don't have the legal authority to do what we are doing what we are doing it anyway, because who's going to stop us? republicans? mitch mcconnell? please. mark milley doesn't report to mitch mcconnell. mitch mcconnell doesn't control the fbi or the intelligence agency. mitch mcconnell is unarmed. what's he going to do about it? give a grumpy speech and drive back to his condo? that's what they're saying. that's what criminals always say when they shake you down at gunpoint, and make no mistake, that's exactly what they're doing because that's exactly who they are. charlie hurt is opinion editor at "the washington times," he joins us tonight. thanks so much for coming on. i never thought that i would live to see the day within administration would acknowledge in public that what they are doing has been prohibited recently in clear language by the supreme court but they are doing it anyway and they don't care, because who's going to stop them because we are armed and you're not? i mean, what system is that?
>> yeah, it's beyond unconstitutional. it's anti-constitutional lawlessness and you ask why are they doing this. the reason they are doing this is because democrats control every lever of power in washington. they control the white house, they control both chambers of congress, and as you point out, that means they have all the guns, they have all the power. and that's why they're doing it. this is far more -- although the attack and the assault on private property is probably the most appalling, disgusting part of all of this but this is more than just that. this is also an attack on the concept of contract, and contracts and private property, which of course we inherited from western civilization, it is why america is the richest, most powerful country on earth. it is why everyone in the world wants to come here, because private property and contract are tantamount for us. and this is an assault on that because these people, these democrats who control everything, want to turn us into
china, because in china you don't have private property and anybody who's ever tried to do -- you know, ask any textile worker, ask any furniture maker what it's like to try to enforce a contract in china, and they'll start laughing because contracts don't exist in china, but that's what these people want to turn america into. >> tucker: so if you're distressed about housing prices, and we've been on this for five years, housing prices are complete out of control and they are highest in the places controlled by the most left-wing numbers of the democratic party, by the way. sanford cisco, los angeles, new york. there are a lot of things you could do about that. you could curb foreign investment in our residential housing market. why should chinese investors own huge parts of manhattan and san francisco? how does that help america? it doesn't. but instead they are putting all the pressure on middle-class -- so you are renting your basement apartment to someone and all of a sudden you have to give it away for free because rochelle walensky says so?
like, what? >> yeah. and of course all this happens at a moment when we has a government, we as a country should be suing china for their involvement in the pandemic and we could hold as collateral half of manhattan, which the chinese business owners and the chinese government owns and use that as collateral. sell all of it and pay everybody that has paid a grievance price and this pandemic, but here's the thing, and this is the most important part of what you just talked about, and that is that the banks are still going to get their cut. you know who's not -- you know was contracts are not being shredded by the cdc right now? if the contracts that require people to pay massive amounts of money to their electric company and to their and gas company and by the way, to netflix. your netflix contract is in getting shredded, because you know why? because barack obama needs to get his $50 million contract paid out from netflix. that's why they're going after
people -- you know, private owners who own property and not after the big guys, because by the way, you're hopeless if you don't have an army of lobbyists in washington with democrats in control. >> tucker: that's totally right. citibank is fine. they paid the protection money that they needed to pay. by the way, why am i paying my taxes? buys the contract between me and the irs -- [indiscernible] still valid? because they have the guns, that's why. charlie hurt, i appreciate it, thank you. >> thanks, tucker. >> tucker: man, when your day goes bad, it tends to get worse and that is happened to poor andrew cuomo, the creepiest governor in america. even cnn, which has spent more than a year hiding the deaths andrew cuomo caused in new york's nursing homes, has turned on him. don lemmon, mr. don lemmon, legs and gentlemen, whipped around on andrew cuomo last night on television like a scene from the godfather, and we have it for

>> tucker: welcome back from budapest. huge waves of human migration really are the biggest story of the age we are living in, and they will certainly define the future. they've accelerated for a couple of reasons. one, it's very easy to travel from one end of the globe to another, easier than it's ever been in human history, and cheaper. but for another, a lot of the world is getting less stable, and in part that's the fault of the west. i do luck in this country, some of them work at the bite and of parma, decided to overthrow the government of iraq, that call the domino effect in the stability brought the region and massive waves in human migration. hillary clinton decided that for some reason we had to kill the leader of libya that started the civil war in the country and again, more migration, and then for the last 16 years, again, ideologues in washington have pushed more war in syria. so all of that had effects. one of those effects back in
2015 was the movement of more than a million people from the middle east and north africa and for some cases, ups appear in africa, into europe. europe is controlled by the e.u., which is of actively controlled by germany, at the time it was her by the german chancellor uncle merkel and she decided to keep the doors open. she said that accepting a million migrants in our country was not a big deal at all. "germany is a strong country, and we will manage costco. that decision changed the nation forever. of caused a massive crimes spike and in general disrupted the entire reason. it's not clear who exacted benefited from that, even the migrants themselves. certainly the countries they came from where weaker as a result, but there was one country in europe that decided not to play along with that disaster. that countries hated by the semi deluxe in washington who pushed the iraq war.
the same people who helped cause this problem are angry that the democratically elected prime minister of hungry. and back in 2015 he decided no, we're not going to allow our nation of 10 million people to be changed forever by people we didn't invite in and who are coming here illegally, and so he put a stop to it. in the face of great international pressure, they called him all kinds of names. the e.u. called what he was doing illegal, but he did it anyway. he built a wall, and today we went to see it, we took the military helicopter down to the southern border down to hungary where it borders serbia would look at this while that is effectively ended illegal migration into the country. and we found a couple of things. for one, it's not actually a wall, it's a chain-link fence. it's very simple, and if you sat for the last five years and listened to american experts debate how it's impossible to stop immigration no matter how high tech, you'll learn that that's a complete lie. all you need is the will to do
it. so we went down there and we watched that wall and we noticed a couple of things. for one thing, unlike every border we've ever visited around the world, it was perfectly clean and orderly. there weren't piles of trash, there weren't scenes of human suffering, because it was under control. chaos creates humanitarian disasters. that's true everywhere around the world and it's true particularly on borders and particularly at our southern border where there are people suffering and dying because the biden administration has abetted -- in fact welcomed -- chaos. but we didn't see that today. it was to order and clarity. you are not allowed to come to hungary illegally. while we were on the border today, the serbian border in hungary, we saw two people who attempted to come illegally, both happened to be from syria and we watch what happened when they were apprehended. it was a very straightforward process. so straightforward it was a little confusing to watch.
they came over the border, where immediate effect if i border control, brought to a detainment area, they were treated politely the whole time. we were photographed, they were searched for weapons on the outside of their clothing and then they were escorted through a door and we followed them. we thought they are going to further processing or to meet with their attorneys or some soros-funded ngo and then moved in the southern part of hungary to stay there for at least a few years, but that's not what it was buried that door was the border and as we followed them through, they were escorted back where they came from into serbia and they could apply for asylum somewhere else. that's straightforward and aggression policy. no, you're not allowed to come here illegally, i'm sorry, this is a real country, we have laws. it doesn't require a gdp the size of the united states gdp, it doesn't require high-tech walls or guns or surveillance agreement. all it requires is the will to do it and as we watched this happen, we said to a hungarian
minister who was standing there it's hard to believe that your policy when you come here illegally, you're just escorted out politely and he said, quote "we are serious country." how embarrassing to be an american in a conversation like that, to realize the greatest country on earth is not on some level a serious country because it allows the chaos that inevitably occurs, the human suffering that inevitably occurs when you open your borders. by the way, we couldn't help but notice that on the serbian side of the border, where the migrants are massing i'm a filth everywhere. boy does that tell you a lot. so it was a deeply revealing moment we are going to have more -- we've had a number of them here in hungary, the small country with a lot of lessons for the rest of us. and one last thing. because the example of hungary so powerful not just in europe, but to the world, to the entire world, not simply the west, what you can do with a relatively small economy and not many people if you're just serious
about keeping your nation from being destroyed, because the leftists are so obvious and there is such a clear reputation to the policies we currently have and the people who instituted those policies, hungary and its government have been ruthlessly attacked and unfairly attacked. "it's authoritarian, they are fascists!" that is -- there are many lies being told right now, that may be the greatest of all. the last and getting revolution was less contested than our last revolution and probably more transparent. that's true. it's not an endorsement of anybody, but that's true. so ignore the lawyers -- the liars, rather, and the lawyers, and judge for itself. is it working in hungary? we think it is. it turns out, and we learned this yesterday, but it's always the people you most suspect. andrew cuomo is every bit as creepy as you thought he was. according to "the new york times" -- to new york's, rather, attorney general, andrew cuomo will [indiscernible] anything,
even august his own me statue. so after report came out first -- virtually every democrat called for him to resign. it was a big story but he didn't get any of the coverage on television, at least on the show anchored by his brother on cnn. instead, chris, attacked ron desantis! [laughs] right! there's a governor we can hate! and then don lemon took over. after telling his friend chris that he loved him, he unsheathed the knife. >> i'm going to make my witness, as you say. i love you, brother. >> i love you. >> this is don lemon tonight. the calls are getting louder and louder. this is what i'm talking about. top democrats from new york to the white house calling on governor andrew cuomo to resign. that in the wake of the bombshell report from the states attorney general that alleges the governor sexually harassed g state employees and a new york
state trooper. the report also says that he retaliated against one woman who went public with her allegations against him and the president of the united states couldn't be more blunt. question: should governor enter, resign? answer: yes. >> tucker: they all seemed so surprised that there was something wrong with andrew cuomo. they had no idea. you know who knew? matt walsh knew. he joins us now to tell us how surprised he is buried at walsh, shocked to learn that there was maybe something wrong with andrew cuomo or did you know that already? >> i can't say that i was. andrew cuomo, as you point out, his excuse, for his rationalization is that he is creepy to everybody in public, so we shouldn't be surprised so that's one reason i'm not surprised. the other reason is that of course this is a guy who killed thousands of elderly people. he consigned -- he condemned thousands of elderly to their death by locking them in rooms
in buildings with people who are infected with a disease that we know premier li kills elderly people in nursing homes and the thing is, i knew that, and the a knew that they back when they were going on and on about how great andrew cuomo's. he had his book tour and everything. they knew that and they knew that he killed that many people and asked what are you going to do and then it turns out that he made some women on his staff and comfortable and now we have to draw the line. look, we could say they are both bad. it's bad to kill elderly people, it's bad to flirt with women who aren't consenting to it. that's true, but one is so much worse. it's like saying that john wayne gacy -- yeah, he killed 30 young men, but he also abandoned shopping carts without putting them away. they are both bad. yes they're both bad but that this is the thing that takes them down and thinks as a whole lot about the media and our
society. >> tucker: yeah, i mean, chairman mao was insensitive to trans people, which i think we can both agree is his real crime. i know you're not a licensed ethicist, you don't teach at yale law school, what you're saying it's worse to kill people than it is to hit on an armed state trooper? i just want to be clear for the kids in the room tonight. >> that is the radical suggestion -- i'm putting it forward. i don't want to force anyone to believe it but i'm putting forward that the possibility that maybe killing literally thousands of old people in your state is probably little bit worse than making inappropriate comments -- i read the report. he said things like that she called some of the women on his staff single mama's and really horrific things, but even so, i would still say that the primary thing that should provoke our outrage is the fact that he is a known killer of the elderly. >> tucker: tweaking feminist sensibility is worse than
murder. really quick, what you think this is really about? i assume no level of sincerity at all among democratic leaders at all, so clearly they wouldn't be -- i mean, they stood by ted kennedy after he killed a girl, literally killed a girl and they never criticized him. they are now knifing andrew cuomo. what you think is actually going on here? >> you know, that's a really good question. originally i thought that well, this was their way of distracting from the nursing home scandal because they'd rather talk about this than that because the nursing scandal in pockets, by the way, a lot of other democrat governors who did the exact same thing. i thought maybe that's the reason but then again, people of moved on, so why don't they need to talk about it now? maybe it's that the powers that be don't want him running for president. i have no idea but whatever the reason is, it's not a good -- >> tucker: can i just make one super quick prediction? if he resigns, however we get in new york is going to be worse. i'm just throwing it out there, and that's a big statement considering how just awful
andrew cuomo is. but do you think that's probably right? >> well, yeah. look at -- bill de blasio. you know, bill de blasio is the mayor of new york city, so that's the level of leadership we have and he manages somehow to be worse than andrew cuomo. so i can only get worse. >> tucker: that's always the argument when there are two words, bill de blasio. matt walsh, great to see you, thank you. >> thanks a lot. >> tucker: so you thought barack obama had retired from the presidency. you didn't realize he just assumed a new role as an ottoman sultan. 200 servants at his birthday party at martha's vineyard. there has been a change to an a. no, the party is not but you know might have to pitch in for barack obama's birthday gift. as if he's not rich enough. the face of neoliberalism. we are back from budapest, hungary, straight ahead. ♪ ♪

private citizen, you go serve in public office and then you go back to private life. you don't need like a shrine to your existence. when what happened was it was born of good motives. frank and roosevelt knew he had gone through all of these historically momentous events, like the great depression and world war ii and he said you know, these papers of mine don't belong to me, they belong to the public and historians, let's just kind of create a library where historians can go study for it and over the years it became bigger and bigger and bigger and what obama is doing is unprecedented, not only is it so grandiose in size, so much bigger than anyone else's, it has four different buildings and 235-foot museum tower in his honor. it's like not even a roman emperor would do that, but he has also removed it from record-keeping system, which is a was been administered by the national archives that ensures that the papers belong to the public. the idea on the first place, they now belong to him and so to keep control of it, he's raising money from people in the middle of a pandemic and joblessness
