During an appearance on comedian Joe Rogan’s podcast, Tucker Carlson revealed that he has heard directly from members of Congress who say that they are “terrified of the intel agencies.”

Carlson spoke out about the “bone-chilling” revelations during a long-ranging conversation with Rogan about a variety of topics.


Rogan was especially stunned when Carlson explained that he had been told by members of Congress that the unelected bureaucrats in power within the intel community have been rogue for some time and have essentially gained control over Americans’ actual elected representatives.

“Members of Congress are terrified of the intel agencies. I’m not guessing at that, they’ve told me that, including people on the intel committee, including people who run the intel committee,” Carlson said. “Including people whose job it is to oversee and keep in line these enormous secretive agencies whose budgets we can’t even know, their ‘black budgets.’ They’re the parents, the agencies are the children.”

“They’re afraid of the agencies,” he added. “That’s not compatible with democracy. Democracy is a pretty simple system, even representative democracy like ours. The people rule. They do so though elections, they express their preference through voting. They send their people to the capital city to run the government on their behalf.”

Carlson went on to point out that allowing decisions to be made by “unelected people who are not accountable to anyone” essentially means that the United States is no longer a democratic republic — and has instead become “another system, I would call it a tyranny, or whatever you want to call it, it’s not a democracy.”


“So that’s like super obvious. It’s playing out in front of everyone and no one cares and no one does anything about it, and I think the reason is because they’re threatened,” he continued. “And if you look at the committee chairmen who allow this s—t to happen year after year… they all have things to hide, I know that for a fact.”

Carlson explained that a lawmaker having “a drinking problem” or a “weird” private life is “very common” in Washington, D.C. — and thus, because these individuals “don’t want to be exposed,” they are likely being blackmailed.

“It’s not a crazy thing to assume that could be happening,” he added.

He then referenced the recent shocking efforts of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to give more power to the unaccountable deep state and send even more American taxpayer dollars to fund the military industrial compex and Ukraine’s corrupt government.

Carlson said that he was “so mad” about Congress voting in favor of using FISA for “warrantless spying” on the American people and in favor of “funding for these insane wars” in Ukraine and the Middle East. He explained that he told “a very powerful” elected official in “a really senior position” how angry he was, and received a startling response.

“But I was like, ‘All these people are controlled. They’ve all got weird… lives, and all these things they’re hiding, and they’re being blackmailed by the intel agencies.’ And he said, and I’m quoting, ‘I know.’ I was like, okay, so at this point, we’re just sort of admitting that’s real? Like, why do we allow that to continue?” he asked.

Many Americans, especially those in the “America First” movement, agree with Carlson’s comments wholeheartedly — especially in the aftermath of a recent betrayal of the American people by House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), who previously expressed strong opposition toward funding the neverending war in Ukraine and to reauthorizing FISA.

Johnson and many Republican lawmakers who have spoken out against the power of the deep state suddenly changed their minds in recent weeks and voted to fund Ukraine and allow the continued warrantless surveillance of Americans — leading to speculation that there had been threats, bribes or other coercion behind the scenes.
