Tucker Carlson recently revealed that the NSA was spying on him and leaked his private emails to journalists in an effort to discredit him. He even claimed it was to make him look like a Russian agent.

According to Mediaite:

Carlson alleged last week that the National Security Agency had monitored his private communications, which, if true, would be a massive scandal. Carlson’s claim has been met with skepticism. And curiously, his bombshell allegation was mostly ignored by the rest of Fox News in the days that followed. So Carlson’s appearance on Fox Business with anchor Maria Bartiromo is notable.

The interview opened with the Fox prime time host recapping his previous allegations. Then, he made some news.

“Yesterday I learned, that — and this is going to come out soon — that NSA, leaked the contents of my e-mail to journalists in an effort to discredit me,” Carlson claimed. “I know this because I got a call from one saying ‘oh, this is what your e-mail was about.”

“So, it is not in any way a figment of my imagination,” he continued. “It’s confirmed, it’s true. They are not allowed to spy on American citizens — they are — and I think more ominously they are using information they gather to put leverage to threaten opposition journalists, people who criticize Biden administration happening to me right now, I think shocking I don’t think we should put up with it in a free country.”

An article in Fox News adapted Carlson’s commentary about the incident where he claims:

Even now, some of the media are claiming that we deserve this. Emailing with people who know Putin, are you? Of course, the NSA is watching you. That’s what you get. But that’s hardly the point. By law, the NSA is required to keep secret the identities of American citizens who’ve been caught up in its vast domestic spying operations. So by law, I should have been identified internally merely as a US journalist or American journalist. That’s the law.

But that’s not how I was identified. It was identified by name. I was unmasked. People in the building learned who I was and then my name and the contents of my emails left that building at the NSA and wound up with a news organization in Washington. That is illegal. In fact, it is precisely what this law was designed to prevent in the first place. We cannot have intelligence agencies used as instruments of political control.

Both parties used to agree on that. Democrats were especially adamant on the point, but not anymore. So that’s exactly what is happening here. We need to find out how this happened, who did it, who allowed it?

We don’t have a lot of power, we’re just a TV show. But we’re going to keep pushing for that because it matters. Not just to us, but to the entire country. You can’t have a democracy in a place where unaccountable spy agencies keep people in line by leaking the contents of their emails, discrediting them with their own emails, which they thought were private. It doesn’t work if you allow that. And we suspect congressional Republicans will also demand an answer.

Carlson ended by claiming that the hard reality is that the intelligence agencies are not your friend.

  1. This government is no longer for the people or by the people. That was lost in the stolen Presidential election! Government is now the enemy!

    1. I agree RW. Gov’t is now THE ENEMY. This EXACTLY why the 2nd Amendment was written and ratified – to protect citizens from Gov’t.

  2. This is positively outrageous! Nothing is sacred anymore, nothing is secret. With Democrats in power, you are not safe from your own government. Be very careful, Americans.

  3. For anyone who thinks this administration is not out to get you, in any way, shape or form, think again. The government wants FULL control over YOU and YOUR LIFE! It’s true!
    But, for anyone who voted for this, know that you are a traitor to your fellow citizens and a traitor to your country!

    1. Loyal democrats believe voting for these feculent criminals will earn them generous treatment when the nation is totally under their control. Conservatives know democrats will be last on the list of those to be dominated and by then it will be too late. It’ll also be too late to preserve U.S. wealth because those in control will have absconded with it long before voters can react. Ironically, by then, there will be nothing to preserve and no one to fight.

      1. You are absolutely spot on Gene.
        The run of the mill DEMONKRAPS will not be spared, perhaps only the elites. Time and time again, the evil party shows their supporters that they’re only good for votes, but, apparently it doesn’t sink in.
        I personally believe that the one world order will put us all “equal” which is their goal.
        Universal wages, no ownership of anything and so on. Why is the government sending so much money to people, telling everyone that renting is better than ownership???
        Basically getting everyone to think:
        Wouldn’t it be nice NOT to have to worry about anything????
        I’ve said it before. The younger generation of today, I give them somewhat of a pass for stupidity. But, I know old folks who voted for this disaster. They were triggered by President Trump. Would love to see how they’re going to survive the future when the government comes for all they worked so hard for???? Thanks for your response.

        1. I will say this about the younger people, college/university age and under. They have NOT been taught about marxism/socialism/communism etc. so it’s NOT STUPIDITY, it’s IGNORANCE. You are ignorant when you don’t know anything about something. It’s STUPIDITY when you KNOW something to be true but you IGNORE or don’t acknowledge that truth.

          The younger ones have had their parents pay for everything so far in their lives, they don’t understand that there is NOTHING “free” as SOMEONE somewhere had PAID for it.

          That’s where I think those who want free college/university tuition free this and free that (from the gubbgermint) to get their votes will have a wake-up call when they get their first paycheck and see what taxes are taken out. We’ll here the question of why so much was taken out (50%, 60% or more). Then they will be told that it’s because of their “FREE” STUFF they begged for. YOU are now paying for your “free” stuff!!

      2. Spot on. Any Democratic morons who believe otherwise have not studied Comrade Lenin’s life and activities. These small-potatoes operatives are but ‘useful idiots’ or expendable pawns to advance the cause. When all is said and done, their sublime loyalty is of no consequence. Their Communist masters will break their toys once they are finished with them.

  4. We as American citizens on a daily basis see and watch the utter chaos and incompetence of an Administration that is more than failing to protect its people ,which is an oath taken by the President of the USA .

  5. Biden should be impeached for using tactics which are clearly unconstitutional. What the hell is going on with this administration? All Americans, no matter what party should be outraged!

  6. The Government does all kinds of stupid stuff! The CIA has written in a name into my family tree that no one has ever heard of to make sure that I cannot travel internationally, because of the top secret program I was in during Desert Storm! Supposedly the name they have written in as a relative and is a known terrorist?

  7. It is time for God to bring the hammer down on Biden and his ilk. He is trying to bring America down just to put money in his families pockets

  8. Our government has adopted Marxist/communist tactics. There is no more doubt about that. “By your actions you are known.”. The Democrats will have to change their name. There is no longer any democracy involved in the democratic party. Will there be a push back from free citizens? I don’t know. I don’t read any passion in posts against this massive take over.

  9. As the Government keeps violating our rights they are acting like the British before the Revolution. We now have taxation without representation. By this, I mean the US government has grown subversive. They must be brought back to reality. They will not get away with abusing their power forever. Democrats, heed this warning. If you persist there will be consequences. If you think the Patriots in this country will not push back. Stealing the 2020 election was the last straw. If this happens in the 2022 midterms there will be Civil War. Nuff’said.

  10. This started with Barry Hussein, maybe with Hill and Billy and I’m sure GWBush had something to do with the spying on the Trump administration. Carlson and all the Conservative (what few there are left) have got to keep pounding on this. We the People have got to keep pounding on it until the commies know we are not going to become subservient little sheep.

    1. I agree Dr Barbara. But I firmly believe that it was OBUMMER who got us down this path.
      The divisions we’re all experiencing, sticking the IRS on anyone who didn’t agree with him, etc., etc., And now, he’s back in the White House running the show with all his cronies.
      Between now and 2022, let alone 2024, I believe we’re going to endure quite a bit of suffering.
      Lord have mercy!

    1. Obama was a lifetime student and practitioner of the Cloward-Piven strategy. The toxic bailouts, stimulus packages, and entitlement programs increased unsustainable debt. Permanently high levels of unemployment are further straining the system by increasing dependency on BIG GOVERNMENT, and yes they are fully aware of the affects and their actions, but will stay the course till they achieve their goals.

  11. When people are complacent, they allow socialism to invade and take over what was a free, constitutional republic. Crisis management has allowed the Progressives to use America’s economic troubles as an excuse to shackle the government with financial burdens while encumbering the private sector with new government controls. Bailouts, and stimulus packages which become an excuse to stage takeovers of private industry; high insurance premiums become an excuse to move America closer to socialized medicine. National bankruptcy becomes a way to find future generations to government dependency and to weak America on the world stage. Socialism uses economic and social crisis to engineer radical change that otherwise would be politically unacceptable, especially the continual hype and fear mongering over the past Covid Crisis, keeping the fear going and keeping businesses from operating, or people living their lives…… All about DISMANTLING the American system of government, and private enterprise system, and implement a socialist redistribution of wealth system…….the marxist plan.
