10:03 pm
dr. fauci when will you speak out about the public national health emergency of covid-19 at the border. thank you for joining us i'm elizabeth macdonald, "the evening edit" starts right now. ♪ thank you for joining us, you're watching the fox business network. we begin with d.c. police detective ted williams, we love having you on the show, your reaction to the 26 year veteran who fatally shot dante right the chief of police resigning in the suburb of minneapolis, she meant to use her taser and national guard being called in, what is your first take on the story. >> it is interesting, a 26 year veteran of the brooklyn center police department had served exemplary until this man died. i really have called for a
10:04 pm
complete investigation, i wish that would've played out. it's my understanding that while she has a set in a letter of resignation it is not been accepted, there's members of the community that want her fired. as you know, the city manager there also has left the job as well as the chief of police. i was on this network yesterday in the city manager called for due process for kim porter the young lady involved in the shooting and it appears that he may been fired ever result of active due process. but she's observed due process in this matter, she deserves to be treated fair. >> we hear what you're saying, turning to the protest breaking out potentially nationwide receiving activity in louisville kentucky, seattle and
10:05 pm
washington, d.c., and new york city, portland, oregon 200 protesters throwing fireworks and rocks and police in attacking the local law enforcement buildings there, l.a. they call in the national guard, is this the answer, public policy experts, you and i have talked about this is it the answer to turn your own neighborhood for you and your family living to a ghost town, retailers just leave. >> you are absolutely right i have covered just about every right for fox and i've covered baltimore during the freddie gray case and one of the sad commentaries the individual writers went into their own community and destroyed major businesses that they needed to survive in that community. one of the things that your auditors need to know, why we are talking there are individuals traveling in to have
10:06 pm
brooklyn center and district in order to be in their to create havoc and help those people along as they are attacked in neighborhoods. that is a sad commentary. liz: you are right, the trait took decades to recover from their writing from the 60s and other periods, what happens police get tied up with protesters at their own headquarters in brooklyn center and somebody shot a bullet at the headquarter front door and smashed the window and the retailers are stranded dollar tree, walmart, footlocker, reliably auto part, people say it's like a war zone. >> it is, i think you and your audience asked one question, what does burning down these various buildings stealing,
10:07 pm
looting, what does that have to do with the sad tragic death of this young man dante right, i answer that for you, absolutely nothing, these are individuals within the community that are taken advantage of the death of this young man by doing this right and looting in their own community, that is sad. liz: detroit police chief was on with us last night, there is often false stories of police shootings and that triggers rioting and looting. have you heard that. >> yes not only that but there are all sorts of false information at times that are put out there in order to get the crowd in a frenzy and worked up i have seen that and i was in ferguson missouri and i been out in cincinnati and i been many of
10:08 pm
the hotspots around the country and that is the one common thread there are times instigating when they would come into these communities and they will stir up the community to a frenzy unfortunately. liz: by the way you talked about baltimore, we covered that and with integrity, president barack obama said no to looting he said you're acting like felons and criminals if you do looting even barack obama said no to that were so sorry, we gotta get to tom homan, thank you for your service to our country it's great to have you on, come back soon fox news contributor, here we've got rashida tlaib, it's good to see you again demanding more from an end to all policing, president biden and tim kaine said were not going to go for that, how will that work. >> it won't work, it's like these protesters do looting
10:09 pm
stores in attacking other police officers, they lose their message do they want more police training, people to be held accountable, that message is lost and now the news is covering them with looting, these are not protesters either criminals i believe in the right for people to protest and change from law enforcement but no justification for committing a crime and there's no justification today from police or get rid of the police it is a foolish idea other cities have tried and given up because of result of more crime. >> we seem 20 cities tried and we see violent skyrocketing critics noting rashida tlaib is not demanding more from out all and then to policing in her home district in michigan she is talking generally about it, she's only talking about cutting police budget, where is the call from rashida tlaib to stop in her home michigan. >> there will be none because
10:10 pm
they always take care of their hometowns and asked congresswoman to always look for the porkbarrel budgets to take care of her district if she gets reelected. you can defund the police if that's what she wants to do, it is a foolish air because every dollar you take away from the police it means you will have less surveillance, less police officers on the job, high response time to get to incidents and less training and exact opposite from law enforcement. if you see law enforcement needs a trained, this terrible shooting maybe they need more training on tasers and maybe every three months like the federals embeds we train every three months, it's constant regurgitation of training, but to do that you need money, the last thing that you do to improve please department is take money away, the police department is less effective and will make the crime rate higher in that jurisdiction. all you have to do is look at the data. liz: that's an important point.
10:11 pm
minorities, poor communities, immigrant communities say no, keep the police. they see violent crime on the rise, minneapolis solved the most murders in nearly three decades, even former president barack obama said he criticized defund the police. >> i been in law enforcement 34 years and there's police officers that make mistakes in this bad police officers, the recent shooting i watched a video and i honestly think she made a mistake she grabbed the wrong tool she grabbed the pistol and thought it was a taser but she needs to be held accountable. i've been a law enforcement from longtime these are men and women that serve honorably 99% of them, they save a hell of a lot more lives than they have taken, most officers go through their whole career, even fewer go through their whole career without firing their weapon, i am virtually have been involved in the shooting back in 1987 and
10:12 pm
i don't care how much training, you're never prepared, it's a fog in my neck second you have to make a decision and shoot or not shoot and then you will question yourself for months afterwards, it is a very difficult situation but the answer is more training, not protesting, not asking to defend the police, not abolishing the police, it is training, training, training. in hard community relations program. liz: we hear you, more training, immigrants, poor communities, my morning communities saying keep the police, we see skyrocketing violent crime, remember when cnn don lemon and chris cuomo ridiculed this defund the police. watch this. >> democratic cities are in chaos right now, is this what you want from joe biden and they're going to take your country away and taking down the statutes. >> it is so bad.
10:13 pm
>> crime is rising in the cities, is not the answer, cnn's take on it, final word. >> the answer is support your police, police departments a better community relations, how many of these people writing have ever talked to policeman how many had relationship. >> the community relationship needs to be improved given the training and the tools that they need to do the job but i will end it with this. more lives are saved by officers, the thousands of times more lives are saved been taken, very few are taken by the men and women in blue. liz: it is a painful story, thank you, we appreciate your insight, thank you for joining us senator marsha blackburn a major new whopper a big mistake in the biden administration messaging as they tried to ram through two and a quarter trillion dollars of infrastructure spending without

liz: joining us now we welcome back to the show tennessee republican senator marsha blackburn, it's great to see you again let's break down the major whopper you heard president biden white house press secretary jen psaki, pete buttigieg they keep using the phony ranking that claims to show how bad the u.s. infrastructure rings 13 globally quality of infrastructure, this leaves out population size, landmass, total miles of roads and highways, the number of airports for each country, this feels like major apples to oranges, what do you say. >> it is apples to oranges, it is so upsetting too so many hard-working americans that we have a president that will say the country is not what it used to be, our rankings are terrible
10:19 pm
on infrastructure, go to tennessee, look at what were doing, we have no debt on our road what we see the biden administration doing is an infrastructure bill that is targeted to roads and bridges and highways and interstates important airports and waterways and broadband, what do you hear them doing, they want to talk about human infrastructure, they wouldn't talk about healthcare infrastructure, their renaming everything infrastructure, the title of infrastructure has to involve. what is it all about their up to $2.7 trillion in this bill, it is a boondoggle, a liberal wish list when they are spending more money on electric vehicles then
10:20 pm
they on roads, bridges, highways, interstates, ports, airports and broadband combine, all of those combined, this is an issue. liz: that's a big deal, but screw through singapore, the netherlands in terms of landmass on this ranking, this ranking does not take into account landmass, those three countries rank higher than the u.s. but they can fit into louisiana and the size of texas in terms of population, alabama has or air force, nevada has more roads and expressways compared to russia and china better by comparison the u.s. has a better infrastructure in many parts of the country versus those two, now according to bernie sanders, human beings or infrastructure, if they cared about infrastructure why did you spend 5% of the two in the quarter on roads and bridges but now human infrastructure what does that
10:21 pm
mean in terms of how the government will approach us. >> it means what they're trying to do in order to get their way is to say everything is infrastructure but bear in mind we did five bipartisan covid relief bills we had one partisan covid relief bill, they said everything was covid relief and by the way less than 10% of the bill went to covid relief and the rest of it was the english list and now with the boondoggle of a bill what you have is everything being termed infrastructure, human beings, been in jerry's ice cream is going to be infrastructure because you want in the summer time and it's made by humans, it goes on and on, it's ridiculous and what it does to our local community that want to repair bridges and people that don't want to drive through a
10:22 pm
floodplain in order to get to work or school, it's a very dishonest approach with the american people. liz: i might go to ice cream, i'm just kidding but seven democrats senators up to seven of them oppose this bill, chuck schumer saying were not going to negotiated, it could easily get filibustered, by the way we also have another mistake wyoming republican senator john barrasso say the biden administration is complaining about the public transit in wyoming. wyoming does not have public train system, their private. and you're saying the third is outdated, amtrak hasn't been in wyoming since 1997, how about getting americans vaccinated and reopen, associated press is one in seven americans say their
10:23 pm
worst off than a year ago, now we have the johnson & johnson job creating blood clots, how much is focused on that. >> i to tell you in tennessee that is what i heard from person after person, they do not want high-speed train to nowhere, what they want is to get people back to work, children back to school and life back to normal, time and again, i heard from people why don't you focus on the basics, let's get the roads and bridges repaired let's let people work on those, let's see if we can get the southern border secured, the southern wall, the border wall is infrastructure, you have the component to complete the wall, way and out there in the dirt on our side of the border, the equipment is sitting idle, let's put people to work and finish the wall, let's get the keystone pipeline in gear.
10:24 pm
liz: that is infrastructure too, tens of thousands of workers, senator marsha blackburn thank you for joining us, it's great to see you, coming up fox news contributor jeanine bertinelli back with us, we have the big pushback from the conservative clergy of cover, black ministers and pastors, they are saying to president biden and georgia democrat stacey abrams stop your lies over the georgia vote law, they are say there's nothing racist about it and certainly not jim crow 2.0. this fiery story they are pushing back coming up next. ♪ ♪ ♪ comfort in the extreme. ♪♪ the lincoln family of luxury suvs. seeing blood when you brush or floss can be a sign of early gum damage. ♪♪ new parodontax active gum repair kills plaque bacteria at the gum line

10:29 pm
divide into distract. now we have president biden who is basically set the tone of racism and jim crow by lying about the new georgia law. one of the common said he made the hours would be reduced to 5:00 p.m. is when they would in the voting when in fact that is not the case, he lied. joe biden lied to americans, he lied to black voters and really what people need to do is read the law for themselves and see that they are lying. liz: our viewers might recall how you and i talked to about being personally attacked for the brave positions you have taken. we have this too will we see the pushback on the georgia law and the misleading statements in the media, we have corporate executives from 100 companies talking online this past weekend about how therese don to the
10:30 pm
vote reform laws, even delayed or boycotting that are reforming laws, possibly even more boycotts to becoming. >> it is absolutely ridiculous yet the week ceos that are afraid of the liberal mob and they're trying to appease them. there is no appeasing them liberal mob, what are these corporations and ceos doing, their name leading their consumers, alienating their employees, they are trying to be activists trying to fit in and be woke or whatever the term is today when in fact they should be standing up and pushing back against this nonsense. george's law is not a racist law and democrats are on the wrong side of this issue according to recent report, 62% of likely voters don't think voter id laws are discriminatory and 69% of likely black voter support voter
10:31 pm
id laws, democrats are totally on the wrong side of this. liz: you have the clergy of color saying it expands access to the ballot box and it puts in place the first time drop off ballot boxes, also it expands the days of early voting, they are saying you should be easy to vote in hard to cheat, when it comes to voter id laws we have that canada, mexico and france they have voter id and we should point out georgia democrat senator says no to boycotts he does not support it and we should also point out the new york times last fall was reporting experts saying the common form of voter fraud are mail-in ballots, you just have to watch out for that, they are saying that's the case. >> i support voter id laws, there is a wealth of transactions every day that
10:32 pm
require some form of identification whether it's banking, airline travel, real travel to get into buildings, there's no outcry about that. liz: we hear you, are you worried about more boycotts because the clergy of color is saying what president biden and stacey abrams, they say misleading about the georgia law can trigger boycotts for the minority community, what do you say. >> you're absolutely right i think there will be more to come which is unfortunate, the ceos are weak and they're doing a disservice to the country in the consumers and employees and again, people need to take the time to read the georgia law for themselves. what this does it sends a message to other states not to do what georgia did. liz: deneen borelli, good to see you, come back soon.

censorship of conservative twitter centering sports journalist jason whitlock's twitter account because he criticized a mark six black lives matter cofounder worth more than $3 million, why center that? >> it is hard to understand, it was the truth, nobody is disputing what he said and what he tweeted was accurate, that is what's disturbing, who is it that they're trying to protect are they protecting somebody have enough money to buy 3.2 million dollars while claiming to be a marxist and claiming not to be in the private property or is it because they just want to give her some cover, i think that is bizarre and it's really frightening when you think so many people get their information on social media whether it's twitter or facebook and these platforms are going to say we aren't going to let the
10:39 pm
public even have true stories about people that might somehow upset the left and the woke then we are no longer in a position to keep a free society with decent information, it is disturbing to say the least. liz: we understand other people are tweeting about it why go to jason whitlock another people when the chapter black lives matter say where is the money going he's asking for an investigation and the associated up press is saying black lives matter pulled a $90 million last year but ten chapters of black lives matter is saying where is the money going, they are asking to. >> they have a right to ask, a lot of big companies were given the shakedown and they coughed up tens of millions of dollars to blm, the organization and they did it because they were thought they were helping race relation, between into the
10:40 pm
pockets of some of the people who created the organization the public has a right to know, you and i can remember a time when journalist would've been the ones leading the charge, demanding more from answers, demanding more from an audit on accounting, the fact that they do not care is very disturbing. liz: we hear you, a new report facebook has censor conservatives but facebook allows on its platform dictators and big government politicians and iraq, afghanistan, central america, to go throughout latin america to abuse and harass political opponents to mislead public in their countries, that is facebook, you have to say was going on with facebook but you know who's fighting back i want you to listen to this governor ron desantis of florida is really going after google's youtube for censor the public policy debate about lockdowns, i would like your reaction to governor desantis, watch this. >> they say it's misinformation even though google and youtube

host conspiracy theory details you can find any misinformation under the sun on google youtube. liz: he's saying youtube has conspiracy theories, videos about 9/11, the 5g network creates covid-19, why censor ron desantis and the medical experts there. >> the only explanation that makes any sense is that these platforms have picked aside they are not referees and striped search calling the fouls these are people that have taken off the striped search and put on a team jersey and cheering for one side to win and the other side to lose and they're not very subtle about it. when they ban the president of the united states donald trump from being the signal that something is truly
10:42 pm
wrong when elected officials, you may not like what they say, you may not agree with her and you may think it's false but to say that they cannot even say it and then let the public react, that is a form of control, i don't want to use the word censorship because only the government can technically censor but it is a form of absolute control of the message and that does become a form of censorship when there's a monopoly like the social media companies basically have. >> censor conservative put on their platform like facebook, the bad actors, the politicians, central media harassing their opponents, that is okay. final word. >> it is appearing that is perfectly okay, it extends beyond, when amazon takes up a book that questions the whole idea of critical race theory but on the other hand it is still selling mine, the not the bible

10:48 pm
media. what is going on here. >> i guess this is the same old playbook of the left it is real for me but not for me in the ultimate form of hypocrisy and they really turned it into an art form and they know that florida is open and this is open and we are doing well and in michigan it's a stark contrast for everything is shut down i cannot blame her right hand woman for wanting to vacation in beautiful sunshine state florida, it just highlights the gross hypocrisy of michigan's governor witmer and the left. florida is open, if you look at what were doing credit to governor desantis and his team, we have taken the precautions necessary to conduct business in a safe manner while not restricting people and keeping commerce open, that is the difference in florida compared to the rest of the country. you were just talking about the
10:49 pm
censorship. liz: go ahead. >> you were talking about the censorship in the control that is ultimately what it's about the governor the michigan governor is all about control which is why they locked on their state but were seeing the highest rates of covid and positive cases in michigan for seven consecutive weeks in the nation that out to be the sign that the policies are not working. liz: we hear you, the governor of michigan is saying these attacks, one of her top aides in florida this is partisan hit jobs, when you see the amount of democrats violating democrat lockdowns rules it is overwhelming and includes the governor's husband last year putting his vote in the water ahead of everybody else when the governor was saying watch it with voting in doing recreational stuff, the list we
10:50 pm
are showing you right now it goes on and on and on of the democrats across the country violating the lockdown rules. >> exactly that's what americans are sick and tired of double standard the picture of governor newsom in california having dinner with close friends at a fancy restaurant, it's governor witmer's husband putting his vote in the water, andrew cuomo parading around without a mask, nancy pelosi going to salon in san francisco and the rest of america shut down and there being told if they do not abide by the rules and elected officials with no science background i might add are telling them to abide by then they will be penalized, they will get sick, terrible things will happen, that's why these elected officials need to be held to the highest possible standard and held accountable for saying things and not living up to the same standard. that's what americans are sick and tired of and that's why republicans are starting to take control of the narrative.

10:56 pm
now. liz: you say keep the facilities, we need them but fix the border policy to stop the overcrowding, is that your point. >> that is my point getting back to the border it is only going to get worse, the surgeon is only going to continue because joe biden left the impression with the world that you can cross the border if you're not a company minor or a child and want to get across the border you stay in the united states forever that's what we saw in el paso yesterday the border facility had dozens and dozens of unaccompanied children and we asked about the children and their going to stay in the united states, that will only keep more desperate parents are more people to send children across the border in the rhetoric that those five in the squad continued to say about a lack of border security is only going to make problems worse and i can tell you from returning to the border we have a crisis and
