Good evening and welcome to “Tucker Carlson tonight.” Most of us never imagined it could happen in this country and today it did happen. A major American newspaper published a story, apparently an entirely accurate story, about a presidential candidate. The tech monopolies that control American media feared the story might hurt that candidate whom they favor. So three weeks before a national election, they shut the whole thing down. They prevented the public from reading the news. They didn’t apologize for doing this. They didn’t bother to make up a reasonable-sounding justification for it. They just did it, exactly as the Chinese government does. These are monopolies. They have all the power. You have none. They don’t have to care what you think and they don’t. This was mass censorship on a scale that America has never experienced in 245 years. It’s a threat to all of us. Democracies only function when there’s a freak exchange of information — free exchange of information. This is a dark moment. We no longer have that.
The New York Post published a series of emails that described Hunter Biden’s lucrative relationship with a Ukrainian energy company, and he called Teresa and described how his father, the vice president of the United States, intervened to help his son peddle influence. We’ve known the outline of the story for quite some time but these emails add damning details. No one appears to dispute they are real, not even the Joe Biden campaign. You are hearing whispers it’s all part of a Russian disinformation campaign. If this is a hoax, it’s the most complex, sophisticated hoax ever perpetrated. It doesn’t seem possible. There are too many. Too much detail. Emails came from a laptop, an apple laptop dropped off at her Delaware computer repair shop, and abandoned there. After a certain number of days with no payment, the shop owner took legal possession of the laptop. He looked inside. There were tens of thousands of emails, including changes with representatives of foreign companies and foreign governments. The laptop apparently belonged to hunter Biden. The shop owner was stunned by this, by the appearance of corruption and he was afraid for his family. So late last year he gave the laptop to the FBI. Kept a copy of the hard drive for himself. But he never heard back from the FBI. By May, he was anxiously made overtures to senator Mike Lee’s office and at least one conservative nonprofit. He emailed their websites but nobody responded. Finally, the man contacted Rudy Giuliani’s office. Today’s story is the result of that. The tech monopolies instantly
