Tucker Carlson on Jan. 6 video: ‘I know DECEPTION when I see it’

Tucker Carlson tells Glenn that the American people deserve better. It’s CLEAR the U.S. government is lying about something concerning January 6th, 2021, and the video footage Tucker has unveiled during his Fox News show this week proves it. ‘I know deception when I see it,’ he says, ‘[and] they’re ALL lying.’ Tucker explains why these lies aren’t about power or politics, but they’re about dignity and self-respect instead. He details major consequences facing Americans due to these lies, and he reveals whether others in the mainstream media have reached out to him for access to the footage as well…

GLENN: Hey, Tucker, how are you, man? Tucker.

TUCKER: Hey, Glenn. How are you doing?

GLENN: Good.
(laughter)

TUCKER: Luckily, I'll still cut off.

GLENN: This -- winner talking about this earlier today. I recognize what you're going through right now.

TUCKER: I know you do.

You're one of three people in the world, you understand.

GLENN: It is crazy. It is crazy to watch it from the outside.

So Tucker, first of all, can we just get this out of the way?

Are you saying that this was a peaceful event? Or are you saying this was a --

TUCKER: Well, of course not. Of course not.

I tried to be pretty -- I wrote those scripts myself. So any -- you know, any overstatement or errors of fact, are my fault.

But I tried to keep it specific. We focus odd a couple of individuals. Three. And they're Jacob chancily. The QAnon shaman. Brian Sicknick, the capitol police officer who died after January 6th. And Ray Epps, the mysterious figure on camera, promoting violence, who was for some reason not -- put on the FBI's Most Wanted List, and pulled off, and thanked by Democrats for his service. And we have said each of those stories, in light of the new tape that we reviewed.

And in the first case, I merely made the point, that here's a guy, Jacob Chansley. A Navy veteran. He's doing four years in prison for some species of domestic terrorism. But none of us were ever showed what he did to deserve four years in prison. Now we know.

And there's videotape of him being led around by Capitol Police, into the Senate chamber.

And at one point, they try one door, it's locked. On his behalf, they're trying to get him into the Senate chamber.

And they lead him in. It's on tape.

Then he goes into the Senate chamber and immediately says a prayer out loud of Thanksgiving for the police officers, who let him in.

GLENN: Okay. Wait. Wait. Wait.

He is -- he is being escorted by the police. But the captain of the Capitol police said, just last night, that this was to de-escalate the situation.

TUCKER: And I'm sure there was a lot of deescalation going on. I'm speaking of a very specific case. Where there was not deescalation. This was something else. I can't guess what it was. I merely put the video up. And drew my conclusions. Of course, viewers are welcome to draw their own.

Here you have is a guy, who is walking alone. There are no other protesters in the frame. And there are canine armed Capitol Police officers around him. They don't stop him. They don't try to slow him down. They don't bring him to an exterior exit. They bring him -- they lead him, trying different doors into the Senate chamber. At which point, as I said, he says a prayer, justly, of Thanksgiving for them and their assistance.

Now -- and, again, I can't even guess as to what motive it is, what we're looking at here. But I know what we're not looking at, an act of violent terrorism.

And yet, this guy is doing four years in jail. And I'm trying not to use profanity on your show. But what the heck is that, for real? What is that?

And don't tell me it's something that it's not.

And so the main conclusion that I drew, is that Chuck Schumer and the horrible Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, filthy man.

And Mitt Romney, and Thom Tillis, and Senator Cramer. They're all lying.

They're all lying. And a lot of them are Republicans. Why are they lying about what we can see plainly?

And why didn't they want us to see it?

And again, I can't sort of fill in that blank. I can't answer that question. I know deception when I see it. It's demonstrable. It's proven. And they should, I think, be asked to explain themselves.

Like, it's not enough to say, oh, it's the worst insurrection since Gettysburg or something. Okay. Fine. Stop with the overstatement by hyperbole. And just explain to me, what I'm looking at on the screen and see it, you know.

GLENN: Tucker, because I've been in this situation before. Let me ask you: If I came to you and I gave you some edited footage of something.

And I said, no. Tucker, this is what it is. You're not going to believe this. I mean, I'm going to show you some stuff.

But this is an armed insurrection. This is really bad. Let me show you. And I've edited some tape and given it to you. If that turned out that I edited out the things that you found, would you just kind of go quiet, or would you come out and blast me to smithereens?

CAROL: I would feel deceived.

And, as you know, you worked -- you've worked in television most of your life.

You've worked around pictures. You know their power, and you know their capacity to deceive.

Nothing is more fleeting than pictures. You think you're seeing the whole story, you're not. And all of us who work in this media, know that.

And so I think keeping people above all -- and moving people, anyone who works around pictures is very aware of their power and their capacity for deception.

And so we're suspicious. Okay. You showed me those pictures. You whipped me into a lather.

But is there something you're not he showing me?

Did you edit that? And so from the very first day, I wanted to see all the video.

And I don't understand why other -- why is MSNBC and CNN.

And, you know, NBC News. And CBS. Why is no one else interested? I don't know.

GLENN: It's beyond not interested.

They -- if they were innocent of -- of this. If they were just saying, hey, we're just reporting what we have been told, and what we were given, I would feel very deceived.

And I would be the loudest in the room saying, release all of it to me.

Because what I just saw, doesn't match what you gave me.

Why aren't they standing up and defending their own honor and integrity?

TUCKER: Well, that's it. That's it. Oh, God. I'm so grateful you said that, because that's the core of it. It's not even -- thank you for saying that. It's not even about politics, partisanship, power, it's about dignity. It's about your own self-respect. I'm an adult man, I'm 53. I have four grown children. I pay my taxes. I'm a citizen, lifelong of this country. You can't lie to me. You diminish me if you do that.

If I allow you to lie, I'm no longer a free man. I'm a slave.

And that has to do with me.

It's not even about you.

If I have self-respect, then I cannot allow that to continue without me saying something about it, because I respect myself. I hold myself to higher standards.

You know, I'm not Mahatma Gandhi. I don't want to overstate my virtue. I'm not very virtuous actually. But I do have some standards of self-respect. And they don't. And it's shocking to me.

GLENN: You called the January 6th committee members liars.

Besides suggestions that, you know, Sicknick was murdered.

Not even suggestions. Claiming that.


Do you -- make the case that they're liars.

They didn't just -- you know, fib a bit. And eat around the corners. These are full-fledged liars.

TUCKER: Well, that was the stunning part to me. I've been in Washington my whole life. And my dad worked for the government. So I had a root level trust in government. Or a trust in government.

But the whole thing can't be fraudulent. Because I know the people who work there. My dad is one of them. I'm very much from that world.

So my default setting is they're not lying about anything. I never assumed that. So I was shocked to learn, that they were lying intentionally. And the way we know that, we have a very specific way of knowing that. Which is when January 6th committee researchers looked at video. They bookmarked it. They left an electronic mark on the video they watched. So we know what they watched. And then we watched it.

And so there is video of Chansley, of Ray Epps, and of Brian Sicknick, that we know they watched, that was not included in the report, that was never mentioned in the hearings. A year and a half, a thousand witnesses, 850-page report, and this video, which overturns the story they were telling, proves it was a lie.

They saw -- so I'm always hesitant to go to motive. Who understands people's motives?

You can only really guess about them.

But in this specific case, we know that they lied. And that just blew my mind.

I mean, you know, some of these guys -- if Adam Schiff lies, I think Adam Schiff -- there are spiritual forces surrounding Adam Schiff.

Like, I think he's a force of darkness. And I mean that. But is Benny Thompson evil?

I have trouble believing. I've known Liz Cheney for 25 years. Is Liz Cheney actually a liar? I just always assumed, she disagrees on the issues with me.

No, it turns out Liz Cheney is actually, affirmatively a liar.

She knew information. She withheld it, because it challenged the lie that she was telling to the public.

That just completely -- I mean, call me naive. I guess -- I'm sure everyone listening is like, how stupid are you?

Well, I guess kind of stupid. Because I was blown away by that.

GLENN: So I know you don't want to go into motivation. But this is a pretty large lie. I don't want to use big lie. Because that's what Schumer used. And Hitler used.

But it's a pretty large lie. What is the motivation?

TUCKER: Well, if you -- you know, again, I can only speculate. But I know the effects of the lie. And they're not small.

This -- this is an event, that was a complex event, many facets. And they simplified it immediately, into a good versus evil tale, as they do with everything. Partly because they lack nuance and imagination, but partly because this was a tool they were using for a purpose. It was a cudgel they were using to beat down their opponents and grab more power for themselves

And in effect, what it did, was change the definition of terrorism from something that exists in other countries, and is aimed at us, to Republican voters. Populist voters.

I shouldn't say Republican. Because Bernie Sanders voters. Trump voters.

Anybody who questions the legitimacy of the current power holders, is now redefined not as a political opponent, but as a terrorist.

And that has very specific consequences. It means all of a sudden, you can harness the world's law enforcement organization. The FBI. And the Intel agencies. CIA.

NSA. Defense intelligence. All of them. And you can harness them against your political opponents.

And that's exactly what they did. Not just in the hundreds of people that went to jail. And almost 100 who are still in jail without trial.

Political prisoners. Six months later. But all the other people who are just political activists, who have views. Honestly, people like you, like they can read your text messages.

They did read mine. NSA read my text messages, and then threatened me with them.

And I brought this to members of Congress. They had a hearing on it. NSA admitted they did it, and then nothing happened.

The director of the NSA is still in office. Like, nothing happened. And you realize, wow.

Being the largest organization in human history. Our own government, has been harnessed as a political tool. It's like the one thing you can't allow.

And we have allowed it. And it's happened with the complicity of Republicans. Certainly, with Mitch McConnell's complicit.

And that's just mind-blowing. And then it's like, well, what do I do now. I'm not going to leave America. I'm from here.

I love this country. I have four kids. I'm not going to go anywhere. I'm going to stay here.

But you really start to feel like, I've always thought I was a very patriotic person. Fly the American flag. Believe in the country. And all of a sudden, like the power centers in the country.

The -- the government, which is supposed to be nonpartisan, serving all the citizens, that's turned against me, like I'm some al-Qaeda member from Balukistan, or something? Like, what? It's very bewildering, I will say that.

GLENN: I think part of it is because we forgot what Washington said, which is government is like fire. You control it, it's fine. It controls you, it will burn everything down.

And we confused our love of the principles, of our country, with the love of -- and trust of our government. Trust the principles. Not the government.

Back with Tucker Carlson in 60 seconds.

We're moving into a moment in our country's history that might be remembered as the time when the republic fell.

I hope not. I hope to God not.

But this thing needs to be unplugged, and plugged back in, and restored to factory settings. It has to happen. I don't know how.

But it has to. We in the meantime, need to make sure that we have an alternate economy.

And we're working and supporting people who are supporting us. And working towards the same thing. And that is the restoration of our principles. In this country.

So, Tucker, what is it that -- what -- if -- because I think you're making points that I understand. But the left intentionally is misunderstanding them. And trying to direct the conversation, into places that you're not -- you're not suggesting. What is the message that you want people to walk away with this week. What's the point of what you're doing?

TUCKER: That you're being lied to, and you deserve better. Your government is not allowed to lie to you. That's against the law. They're not allowed to lie to you.

It's the government. And you should demand better. And I would say specifically. I've alluded to it a couple of times. For people who are not, you know, supporters of President Biden.

Who think the system needs reform.

That it doesn't represent them. Serve their interests.

Those people are Republican voters. Because they have no options. They vote for the Republican Party.

Third party in a meaningful way.

And so, very specifically, they have to demand more from their own representatives, or else democracy isn't real. So representative democracy. That means, your will is expressed through the votes of the people, that you vote for to go to Washington on your behalf.

And that is absolutely not happening.

Their priorities are in a different universe from the priorities of their voters. You don't see that on the left.

Democratic politicians make some effort to represent their own voters. Republican politicians do not.

Mitch McConnell has zero interest in what you think about anything.

And that is -- that is a structural problem with the party.

And I don't know what it -- likable, what to if I cannot it. I think part of the problem is that Republican voters don't like -- the donors don't like Republican voters. They clearly don't.

You know, and the biggest donors to the Republican Party, think Republican voters are disgusting. That's a huge, huge problem. That's not true on the other side.

So I don't know. But, you know, there's kind of nothing you can do about Merrick Garland, if you're your average voter. But if you're a member of Congress, it's like not even bothering to listen to what you care about. You have a way to replace him. It's called a primary. And I don't know why that never happens. I mean, I really don't understand.

Adam Kinzinger would still be serving in the Congress, if he wasn't redistricted out of his seat. What is that?

Were the majority of Republican voters, in his district, on his side?

No. But he would have gotten reelected.

So there's a problem with our system. And I hope that could be better.

Is THIS How the Government Will CRACK DOWN on Dissent?

Is THIS How the Government Will CRACK DOWN on Dissent?

"Every warning light in me is flashing red," Glenn warns. As government agencies like the FBI and DHS warn of a rise in extremism, Glenn warns that THEY are the ones creating it. Whether they're foreign-born extremists, that our government is allowing to flood across our open border, or supposed home-grown extremists, which our government seems focused on, Glenn believes this might not end well. Will America face an attack in the near future? Will the government use an attack to paint half the country as "extremists," as it is already trying to do? While real criminals are being let off the hook, Glenn tells the story of a woman in Portland, Oregon, who got a harsher sentence than any BLM rioter for committing the "hate crime" of misgendering and confronting a trans person who was trying to use the women's bathroom. So, how long do we have before the crackdown on dissenters really begins?

GLENN: There are several things. Let me start this.

There are many things, that I believe that I shall never say.

But I shall never say the things that I do not believe.

Immanuel Kant. There are several things that need to be said. And to everything, there is a season.

My job is to inform you, also to entertain you. But to enlighten you, and warn you.

And I have felt this was a calling more than a job. It's the only reason why I still sit here. And there will come a time when those who are trusted voices, will no longer be able to be heard.

We -- we know this. Because of the attack on anybody that just disagrees. If you are for life, and you are praying, you can go to jail for 20 years.

If you are dying job of reporting, you can go to jail.
If -- well, let me give you this story from -- from Portland today.

A woman has now been convicted by a Portland, Oregon, jury of criminal harassment. A hate crime, after she mis-gendered and confronted a trans person using the women's bathroom.

Cassandra McIntyre told Rills Larson, a far left trans activist, formerly known as Ronald Larson, that they're a man.

And to get out after the male allegedly shoved another person to cut in line for the woman's toilet. The jury saw the video of McIntyre lightly shoving Larson during the confrontation.

She was sentenced to two years probation, plus community service.

That's longer than anyone for BLM or Antifa rioters. Or arsonists have ever received in Oregon.

Larson is a self-identified Marxist, queer, demi-binary trans woman. So these things are real. We also that know catch and release, is really happening, in almost everything now. With law enforcement.

It's not just a border thing.

It is also in our cities.

They -- we told you a story yesterday. Where four people who cut up two corpses. And then scattered them in a park.

Were caught. And then released.

Okay. Then we were also told on the same day, that the National Guard was being put into the subways of New York.

Now, the reason this is bad, we don't use the National Guard, for that. Unless it's -- you know, especially on an ongoing basis in a riot, maybe.

But that's your police force now?

The army?

Not good. And I wondered, because of yesterday, as they put the chain-link fence around the Capitol again. I was wondering, is that National Guard there because of crime? Is that National Guard there, to get people used to seeing the guard?

Is that National Guard there because our Department of Homeland Security said, every light is blinking red, because we are headed toward a -- a colossal terrorist attack.

So is the National Guard there for that, and they just don't tell us?

Every light in me, is flashing red, right now.

And my family, we're going through some difficult discussions and -- and we're -- this is going to be a till time.

And until I see the next president, or this president, legitimately sworn into office, I don't think my lights will start -- start flashing green or even yellow for a while.

There are too many things that could go wrong. And last night, our president was, again, setting us up.

Did you know that in Moscow, yesterday, the American embassy told Americans, to stay away from any large gatherings.

Because Intel says, that there are extremists, who want to bomb and kill people in the public square.

Now, who are those extremists?

The president did not talk about the extremists, that made his motorcade stop for ten minutes because they couldn't get through the crowd. With Secret Service, police, everything they had.

They couldn't get the motorcade moving through the crowd for ten minutes.

And the president immediately started to speak about war. And the war internally and externally.

And the war internally are the Trumpers. The war internally are January 6ers.

Well, I was just as mad, if not madder than most people. I warned against January 6.

Don't go. It's a trap.

And I was furious, on January 6th. And I still am furious, to anybody who was there. That broke the windows. Et cetera, et cetera.

And I don't care what political bent you're from.

I don't care. You're not a friend of the republic. But now I also know, that there are things that have already been revealed. And things that are coming, that will show, our government was deeply involved in that.

And it's to paint half the country, as an extremist. I fear, Beslan, or something like it, is coming.

A group of terrorist attacks, that will happen in a week, that will so fundamentally shock the American people. And you heard fear in people I've talked to today.

I am afraid for my wife. I am afraid for my daughters. That will become a reality.

And people will scream, make it stop!

And extremists will be defined by whoever is in power.

And I believe this will happen before there's a change of power. I hope to God not. Pray, and if you can, pray on your knees. Beg for protection of the republic.

But when that happens, I believe that if they're not preparing, they're foolish.

But when the Department of Homeland Security issues the warnings they have been issuing, and nobody is talking about them.

And then the president talks about extremists in the country. And we have open borders. Where we know thousands, who wish us ill. Are now in the country. And we have no idea.

We have no idea, where they are. Who they are. What they're planning.

And we have them from all walks of life. We have them from China. We have them from Iraq.

I'm sorry. Iran. We have them from Gaza.

We have them from Russia, everywhere.

And anywhere. The people who hate us, are coming through.

And I'm sorry, they're -- you -- I'm sorry. If you -- show me the majority that are families with children.

They're mainly 20-something men.

And we know, that this is happening now.

I believe our government, at least has a plan, that they should have, perhaps.

To grab control of the country. And issue marshal law.

God forbid, if something like this happens.

And I think it could happen, before January.

And I often say to you, where you are, is where you will be.

When something like this happens, there will be so much chaos, if God forbid, it's a Beslan-like attack.

There will be so much chaos, that the government will have to say, curfew. Think of what they did in Boston. Remember when the Boston bomber was loose?

And they just shut the city down. Everyone, stay in your home. We're looking for him. He could be somewhere. He could even be in your home.

And extremists now, cover so many things. When that happens, are these Islamic extremists?

If there's -- if there's people that see it, because remember, I've said, for years. This is not going to be coordinated. This is going to be people seizing the opportunity. They'll see the weakness.

And they will seize the opportunity.

So I believe things like this. Some of them will be very well-planned out. Others will happen just because it's happening. And they'll say, go. Now! Go, go, go, go! God forbid.

I have no reason to say this, except for my gut. So please don't take this as gospel. Please don't take this as gospel.

This is what I do for a living.

And my job is to connect all the dots. And say, what's a likely outcome?

I don't know how likely this is.

But I will tell you, the people are here. The opportunity is now.

Much more than it will be in January. It solves a ton of problems. Our president last night, I'm not saying he was -- he's involved in anything like this. But he's setting the table for that.

We already have crime in our streets, and people don't feel safe. If you fear this, because you're not mentally prepared, not physically prepared, have not had a meeting place for your family. If things go wrong, here's where we meet.

You will be where you are, and they will be where they are.

Because people will say, dear God, just make it stop.

And when there's that much chaos. When people are afraid, for their own life, Hong Kong can be lost.

And all of those people that were protesting, are just disappeared.

And the world doesn't even see it. This show is not for everybody. And I understand that.

And I've been called all kinds of names for this. And I understand that. My family, at times, will say, dad, come on. And I understand that.

I can only tell you the things that I believe. I can only tell you the things, that I think are true.

I have prayed for 20 years, please, don't let these things be right.

There's nobody that would be more happy than me. And I do believe, there is a way, only if I put on the full armor of God. And shod your feet with the gospel of peace!

We can make it. And we will make it to the other side, of whatever comes our way.

But we'll be in much worse shape, if we're not mentally, physically, and spiritually prepared.

Congress Fights Over EYELASHES While Our Economy is in Shambles?!

A House of Representatives committee hearing delved into chaos after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene mocked Rep. Jasmine Crockett's "fake eyelashes." And it didn't take long for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to join in. When Glenn first saw the footage, he immediately thought, we've seen this kind of dysfunction before. Was this a weird 2024 version of the 1856 caning of Charles Sumner, which was a prelude to the Civil War? Or, at the very least, is this a sign of Congress' real priorities? While the country is facing a massive wave of inflation, Congress is arguing over ... eyelashes?!

The REAL REASON Harrison Butker’s Catholic College Speech Caused Leftist OUTRAGE

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker's commencement address at Benedictine College has infuriated the Left. But while many a TikToker is complaining about his statements about Biden and abortion or women, motherhood, and Taylor Swift, Glenn reveals how their freak-out reveals their true intentions: “They say you have freedom of religion, you just keep it in your church. He’s speaking IN HIS CHURCH!” Butker's speech shouldn't be controversial, Glenn says, especially for Catholics. But yet, here we are... Glenn applauds Butker for having the courage to stand for his faith and speak the truth, no matter the cost.

EVIDENCE That YouTube is "SILENCING" Glenn's Channel Ahead of the 2024 Election

Is YouTube throttling Glenn's channel ahead of the 2024 election? Glenn and his team have reason to believe so. Glenn reviews the latest data, which reveals a disturbing trend that, if it continues, would all but destroy Glenn's channel by the election. "We are being silenced," Glenn says, "and it's not just us. It is EVERYBODY who has a different opinion from this administration." But Glenn also reveals what you can do to push back.

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Hello, America. I want to talk to you a little bit about the coming election, and the kind of information you're going to be able to access. Things are changing. And they're changing rapidly. And you will never notice it, because that's the way things are done now.

But there is a massive campaign on, that I believe our government is absolutely involved in.

But not only the government, social media.

My social media page, just on YouTube. I don't know. 1.62000000 people, I don't remember what it is.

Followers. And to show you what's going on. Just, I think three months ago, I got 95 million impressions every month. 65 million views.

Something like that. That was three months ago. Now we have about 60 million impressions and 12 million views.

This month, we are trending to be half of that again. There is nothing that we've done differently. Now, unless America is just bored to snot with me. Which I completely accept.

That is a real possibility.

We are being silenced. And it's not just us.

It is everybody who has a different opinion from this administration.

And we are being silenced and squelched. By the time we get to the end of the summer. Which is where the campaigns are going to be heating up.

You're not. If you were a subscriber of mine on YouTube.

You're never going to see me. You will have to search me out, to find any of my clips.

This is, again, electioneering.

This is nothing more than part of a -- what I believe to be an effort, to steal an election.

And it is gravely disturbing.

This is the time I built TheBlaze for. Back in 2010.

I was sitting in the office. And I remember talking to Stu and Pat and saying, we have to get out of here. This place will burn itself to the ground.

And we all knew that. We all knew the media would burn itself to the ground.

Wouldn't you agree? We all looked at it, at the time.

But when I said, we have to go online.

That was stupid. That was stupid. Nobody was doing it, at the time. I mean, there were people, Adam Curry was doing things.

But there was nobody that was really a success at it, at that point.

And nobody was doing a live network. It was only Major League Baseball.

And I took all of the -- you know, I took all of my children's college funds. And everything else that I had made. And I dumped it into TheBlaze.

And I nearly lost it all. Because we were way, way ahead.

But luckily, we had some very dedicated people.

I meet them all the time.

I've been a member since the very first day of TheBlaze. And I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. We have grown a great deal.

But we don't have the social media pushout.

They are they're doing this to TheBlaze. They're doing this to The Daily Wire.

They're doing this to everybody. So you will see less and less from us, and our opinions.

And it's really a very dangerous thing. Because we are now entering a very dangerous time.

I'm going to be real honest we, too.

I see a time, that I'm not going to be able to talk to you about what's really going on.

If you don't know by then, I probably won't know.

But we're going to have to stay in contact, some way or another. So I have been working on several programs, that we are going to try. And tonight, is -- is a program, based on history.

It's a pilot. And I want you to watch it. And see if it is something, that you would -- you would watch. Again, it's a pilot. It will change a bit.

This one is tonight. All on history.

And we have this amazing. We probably have -- gosh, I don't even know. Eighty. 90 million dollars' worth of documents. And everything else. In a vault.

And we will start telling those stories, if this is something that you would like. And this is kind of a backup show. So we can stay in touch. And I'm not talking politics. I'm just telling you the truth of history.

And tonight is -- is the first one, it's based around one of the most stressful auctions of my life. There was one artifact, and there was just one. And it was so important. It changed the world.

And I talked to my wife about it. And she said, are you out of your mind?

And I said, well, but there's only one. And look how important it is. Change the world, et cetera.

So she gave me a budget. And she was like, there's no way I will win this thing.

It was a test model version. They made four. Sputniks. The last one they made, burned up in space.

But this was the Sputnik, we believe this was the one that was testing the tones, that went out.

It now hangs from the roof, a copy of it, hangs from the roof of my office. The other one is in the vault.

But I couldn't believe that we won. And I was on cloud nine, knowing that our museum now had something that nobody else had, except the air and space museum in Moscow, and the air and space museum in Washington, DC.

And it is what caused the space race, it was the first satellite. It was the first thing that went up. All of our telecommunications now come from that.

Then, in fact, let me play this a little bit of a clip of tonight's show. Do you have that clip, where --

I collected so many artifacts over the years that we're now able to open an entire museum. So when I heard that that was coming up for sale. One of the Soviet Union Sputnik satellites that is responsible for everything in space, it was coming to auction.

I had to win it.

VOICE: 40,000. Forty. 150. 160,000. Three. We'll go a little higher. Can you get into three? 300 now. 320? Thee hundred 20 thousands? Anybody else beyond that? 300,000.

You are -- my friends. $300,000.
(applauding)

GLENN: I won, Sputnik was ours.

But then I got a call into a meeting with historians at our museum. They didn't want to tell me any specifics about the meeting beforehand, which is never a good sign.

This thing is such an amazing -- what was -- what was Epstein's assistant's name?

STU: Ghislaine Maxwell?

GLENN: Okay. Do you remember the movie Tetris?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: The big guy from England in that is Maxwell. Okay. Her dad. But her brother is also in that movie, and he was the -- you know, the loser that was trying to go, you know, get Tetris for his father.

Well, he's actually involved in this story. And I don't know if this made the final cut. He plays a very small role. But he was involved. We weren't sure if this was even real.

And we couldn't -- we couldn't tell. We had a tip-off. Because we looked at the other Sputniks. And they were slightly different.

And the difference was -- was something that you would never. If you're going to fake one. You would never fake it like that.

Because it became obvious.

But there were some things that just kept falling apart, on us.

Did I buy a fake Sputnik?

Tonight, you'll find out, is it a fake Sputnik, or not?

And you'll learn all about Sputnik and the space race, we take you back to what this really meant.

It's great for the whole family.

It happens tonight.

This is a -- this is a -- just a pilot that we did.

I don't even know. About a year or so ago. And we've been holding it. We want to take you through the entire museum.

And teach you history, through the objects in the museum.

So watch it tonight with your family. Let us know what you think. And you can watch my special tonight on BlazeTV.com. It's 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

If you haven't subscribed yet to TheBlaze TV, and you try to watch my show on YouTube, we've noticed -- we don't know if it's the algorithm or what. But nobody is now watching at 9:30. So we're testing something else.

We will post it there tomorrow, at an earlier time, 6:00 p.m. Eastern. To see if it's being silenced. Or you're just not watching anymore. We don't know what's going on with our YouTube channel.

We suspect. But we don't know.

So tomorrow, at 6:00 p.m. on YouTube. But tonight, the premiere on Blaze TV.com.

STU: Now, for from a work flow perspective, was there any consideration given to the idea of maybe meeting with the historians before you spend $300,000 on the item?

GLENN: We did.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: And we do that.

We check everything out.

But there was one thing that we just -- we must notice.

And it was -- I mean, this journey is crazy. We -- we have the -- one of the head guys of NASA. We have probably the biggest space artifact guy. I think we flew him in from California or Washington.

He came in. They disagreed at first. I mean, wait until you see the ending.

I mean, it's -- it's an amazing ride.

PAT: Did you save your receipts? That's what I wanted -- I mean, did you take it back up to the counter, and say, yeah. This Sputnik, it didn't work out for me. You want to have your receipt in hand. So I hope you did.

STU: Or at least the credit card I bought it on.

GLENN: Hey, Amex, somebody put a Sputnik on my card.

PAT: It wasn't me. Why would I buy a Sputnik. It doesn't even fly anymore.

STU: So is this something that you're thinking about long-term, doing more of these types of things. Because we have so much great stuff over at the museum. At least, my understanding is we know all the rest of the stuff is real. But, I mean, it seems like you do a lot of this stuff.

GLENN: Yeah. We actually. We're going through. Because of Sputnik, we're going through absolutely everything. And we found a couple of things that were questionable. We haven't found any fakes. We found some things that the story is not quite right on.

We've got three people, that's all they do. And they're going through the entire museum.

And the documentation now on all of our artifacts is amazing.

And we're learning so many -- just incredible stories. That include people that you would just never think. You know, I've said this before. I honestly don't think we would have won World War II, if it wasn't for Ian Fleming, the guy who wrote James Bond. We have three specific artifacts from him. That tell a story, that is -- that nobody knows.

And he's -- it's just incredible. Some people might know Operation Mincemeat. But they don't know how he affected the war all the way along. He played a quiet role, and nobody knew it, at the time. But we have a lot of stuff that we're excited to show you. So this is a show that we will -- we will take you through all of the -- I mean, if you watch it and you like it. We'll take it through all the museum. And teach history through the artifacts, that -- that are or are not real
