with. democratic jerry nadler wants the justice department whether there could be federal charges brought against kyle rittenhouse since he was acquitted. legal pros, said this is no-go move. didn't involve federal property or involve federal assets. striking thinking on this case. really not so state of the art what we're hearing out of the white house and democrats on this case, what do you say? >> well the fact it is one of the things i've been writing about, right? these guys are socialists and the only successful socialists are totalitarian and they're basically abandoning the rule of law at the border and abandoning the rule of law here. a jury of fellow peers spoke. there is no double jeopardy in this country. the fact that nadler would say that from the lofty perch in congress is reprehensible. maybe you don't like the outcome that every jury comes up with but you have to respect the system.
the fact democrats don't respect system at all visible in their economic policies and visible sadly in this statement. elizabeth: clear, white house briefings, democrat briefings are not the same as what a jury hears. so people should take a debreath and take a pause to look at the facts of this case. kevin, you've been very strong on this topic. president out with defense of his economic policies. steve rattner, larry summers said wait a second we're in for a long slow growth obama period coming back to the u.s., possible stagflation. is that true? retail sales still coming in strong, up from last year. with do you think? >> right. the thing that really, really moved me the most, your old friend jen psaki there is no economist anywhere who thinks the build back better plan is bad for inflation. you know that is not true. how many times that you and i have talked about this i'm not only one. if you read articles, all sorts of people, even democratic economists think this i really
don't understand, they're basically on a run away train destroying the economy. they don't seem to care. you have to be in denial inflation is already highest it has been since the early '80s, late '70s. higher than that next year. people can't buy a turkey for thanksgiving, for heavens sake. they're throwing fuel on the fire. it is irresponsible. i'm thankful there are economists traditionally partisan democrats are so troubled they're speaking up. elizabeth: the white house say the massive spending bill is paid for. yeah, it is called taxes. more irs firepower, 80,000 new agents, 80 billion for that. to go after taxpayers paying 75,000 or less, that is what the gop says, to pay for a poisoned chalice loaded with inflation s that true they will go after those making 75,000 or less with audits?
>> yes. the audit thing is out of control. don't forget, under president obama, because again if you're a good successful socialist you have to willing to be totalitarian, they used irs to go after conservatives. you remember lois lerner, basically got steve bannon arrested but she was held in contempt because the way she treated congress basically caught using the irs to go after conservatives. so sure, they want to have a lot more irs agents. if you think they're not going after conservatives you have another thing coming. they will go after conservatives with low incomes, high incomes, if they tell you voted for trump you will get audited. elizabeth: this feels like a gigantic quota system outlawed at the irs. the cbo rules say you are not allowed to count tax collections as revenue raiser. you're not supposed to do that at all. we know, you and i talked about this too, there has been a history of political audits going back to fdr. through eisenhower, through
kennedy, through nixon and clinton and obama. the irs they see a dog whistle coming out of congress or any party that oversees their budget they will listen and respond. that is dangerous territory. people don't like the irs stuff at all. >> right. the fact is they have a long history of this. you might recall, i'm a lot older than you, liz, you might recall one of the first things hillary clinton did when she got to the white house she got the tax returns of her enemies delivered to her in the white house. irs people that did that, got in a lot of trouble. hillary clinton we learned a little bit about her, learned a lot more later worse than that they're will weaponize government. that is what my book, the drift," is about the. they're socialist basically willing to be totalitarian to achieve their gains. elizabeth: it is big government bullying. we need common sense. common sense rings like a bell. it gives hope. let's watch the incoming virginia lieutenant
governor-elect winsome sears, watch this. >> we have to look at the whole bill. my god, did you see the bill is this big? who read the whole massive thing. do we know what is really in it. do we have to pass it before we can know what is in it? elizabeth: right. your response. >> it's a very long bill. i think if somebody wrote the words they probably read them while they were writing them. 50 people wrote them and stapled it together. it is filled with stuff i read that is shocking and disturb disturbing to me. i written about the tax side. they're about to make us the highest tax placed in the developed world. they have stealth increases on american corporations. that will make them flee overseas, to drive jobs overseas putting a fire on demand, attacking supply, feeding demand. no economist on earth says if you decrease supply, increase
demand prices will go up. the shamelessness of these people. have i most mild-mannered economist? they have me outraged. this is disgusting what they're doing. i love to get them in seminar room because they can speak to the supporters in media, stop carrying about science or facts and apparently only care about partisan democratic victory. elizabeth: kevin what is great about you smile through your outrage and disgust. >> i'm happy to be alive. elizabeth: good for you. we'll get through this, kevin hassett. buy his book. a great writer. still to come this hour, police warn after new growing phenomenon, mass looting, smash-and-grab retail theft found in san francisco, chicago, new york, across the country. the democrat experiment how to handle crime it is blowing up in their faces. up next former wisconsin congressman sean duffy on hunter biden's investment firm he co-founded with chinese business

♪. elizabeth: joining us now former wisconsin congressman fox news contributor sean duffy. we wanted you hear to talk about this story. "the new york times" reporting that hunter biden's investment firm bhr, that invested in an african mine, that mined cobalt a key element for electric car batteries. what was your take on this story. >> ought rage. we have a lot of gas, oil, want to go off gas and oil move to electric cars. the administration says by the way of hunter biden we'll let china control the largest cobalt mine in the world? listen we used to have a time in america we had our business leaders, even our politicians worn lapel flag on the jacket. you have these guys like hunter biden, joe biden making huge amounts of money by selling the american people out. i cannot believe this story and frankly, the biden
administration and hunter biden should be embarrassed by it. elizabeth: senators ron johnson, chuck grassley have been looking into this. hunter was working with china's top energy conglomerate, cefc, investing in solar panels. and the african mine and china's solar power industry has been accused of human rights abuses and violations. hunter biden is very tangentially. to that. >> what we have a cfius group that investigates these transactions on america and our strategic interest. the fact we wouldn't have the american government to step in saying we'll not allow the sale to go through especially spending billions of u.s. tax dollars making a transition from oil to electric and here the batteries that are made for electric cars need cobalt and we're letting the chinese take over the largest cobalt mine.
this doesn't make any sense unless you're really well-connected politically you make a lot of money, these kind of deals get done. as more americans find out about the interest of the bidens as opposed interest of the american people they become far more outraged. >> the white house is saying the u.s. is losing the edge on ingredients we need for green energy products that china is doing it. it is the delaware way, the biden way. "politico" has been reporting on this already. a lot of pay-to-play stories with hunter and his uncle. they skate close. hunter paid was paid millions of dollars for legal help. the wife of former mayor of moscow wired 3 1/2 million dollars to shell companies controlled by hunter. a chinese associate fund as 100,000-dollars shopping free for james hunter and his wife. started with mbna before that, with james biden look hooking up
with mississippi tobacco lobbyists a bunch of those were indicted for bribery. it is moving through the years. joe biden his net worth in 2009 was below 30,000. he is a millionaire from his books and speaking fees. this is the delaware way. that is what biden is always talking about, right. >> liz, i'm not sure if this is the delaware way but he is worth $13 million right now. we saw in the hunter biden laptop that the big guy was getting a cut of the proceeds of a deal that hunter was cutting while joe was the vice president. he was flying around on air force two with vice president joe biden. again they're playing power, joe biden for cash in the family pocket. so, but here's the deal, the media, you said it in "the new york times" story. that is great "the new york times" is covering it but every news network if this was a republican would be covering it. every paper would be covering it. this is massive story. the bidens are able to do it because no one reports on it. they slide under the radar
selling america out, getting rich in the process. i don't care if you're republican or democrat. serve the people, best interests of americans. elizabeth: the media bought it is middle class joe, working class joe. if you look at "politico," they have been doing reporting on this, james biden, hunter biden launched a hedge fund paradigm with the son-in-law of a billionaire sun moon. james biden viewed that hedge fund as a way to take money from rich foreigners who could not legally give to joe biden's campaign, get money from government worker pension funds. this thing folded after it hooked up with another hedge fund run by alleged ponzi schemer alan stanford. >> transparency, sunlight are the best disinfectant. joe biden promised that as the bidens get wealthy f we make the transition to electric cars, battery-run cars we need to make
sure the infrastructure is not foreign or chinese owned but american owned. keep gas fueled cars and american fuel and american jobs driving those cars. elizabeth: sean duffy, great to see you, come back soon. still to come, winsome sears, the lieutenant governor-elect much virginia calling out the white house for politicizing covid-19. hear what she had to say. more on the dr. fauci controversy accused making up his own government definition for what is really supervirus research. "the washington post" reporting it was done to avoid accountability. that is a heavy charge. dr. fauci denies it. nih was funding research in china. house education and labor congresswoman mariannette miller-meeks reports that parents are afraid to speak out at school board meetings. they're afraid of white house intimidation. stick right there. we have more coming up. ♪♪it's a most unusual day♪♪ ♪♪feel like throwing my worries away♪♪

elizabeth: welcome back to the show, from house education and labor, iowa congressmen mariannette miller-meeks. it is great to have you back on congresswoman. we're getting reports coming in that parents across the country now are afraid to speak out at school board meetings. they're afraid of retaliation and intimidation from the white house. what do you say? >> well wasn't that the purpose of you know, merrick garland's comments and school board association visiting the white house, was to intimidate parents not to use their first amendment rights to have
interest and express discontent with their children's education? elizabeth: we've got governor chris christie. he looks like he will run in 2024. he went after the biden justice department, congresswoman, and the fbi for continuing to investigate school board parents as domestic terrorists but governor christie called out the first lady saying joe biden is pulling the strings behind the scenes on this policy at the white house. watch. >> as a u.s. attorney who used patriot act against real terrorists what we assured people all the time that we would never, ever, use it in a way that was improper or inappropriate. and joe biden's justice department now seems to have broken that pledge and it's outrageous. it is the national teachers union, the national school boards association, who has unbelievable influence in the white house because jill biden is one of their members. elizabeth: jill biden is a member of nea. there is no proof she is pulling
strings. what do you think? >> i think what we've seen merrick garland testified under oath to the senate that they would not be going after parents, that parents have a right to express interest in their children's education and they in fact should do so and we know from learning and education that when parents have an interest in their children's education, the children actually do much better. they are more successful in school. so i think this whole avenue of approach to, you know, teachers expressing interest in their children's education, attending school board meetings, and labeling them as domestic terrorists is absurd and parents have a right to be interested, they have a right to be outraged. violence of course we don't condone violence but from what i've seen, there hasn't been violence committed by parents. it is parents expressing frustration and anger what happened at their schools. let's not forget, that parents have been teaching throughout the pandemic, watching what's happened with their children at
school and they have seen on video what goes on in those schools. so it is more than just what we've learned through the school board meetings and their dismissal of parents. elizabeth: incoming lieutenant governor-elect winsome sears, she is speaking out against critical race theory. racializeing children to see each other as fundamentally racist. teaches people every social interaction in terms of race. reports definitely showed this is happening, being taught in schools across the country in missouri, maryland, new york, california and more. illinois, virginia. watch winsome sears push back on cnn here. watch. >> no, no. it is part of the curriculum. it is weaved in and out of the curriculum. in fact in 2015 former governor, who is was just defeated mcauliffe, his state board of education had information on how to teach it so it is weaved in. what we want to say and what governor-elect youngkin has said that all of history must be
taught, the good, the bad and i ugly, what we hear learn from history what we don't learn from history around we repeat the same mistakes. elizabeth: learn from the ugly period of racism and move to color-blind society like what martin luther king wanted. what is your word on that congresswoman? >> i agree whole-heartedly with the incoming lieutenant governor winsome sears. children are not inherently racist. we see children playing. it doesn't matter of the color of the child next to them. even if there is language barriers, they somehow communicate and play. what this is teaching that children should be ashamed of their color. ashamed of their skin. they should consider themselves oppressors or victims. that hurts success of all individuals. ultimately hurts the success of our nation. it is absolutely being taught. it is weaved into the curriculum, call it any name they want you about it is being taught in our schools all the
way to elementary school. we need to put a stop to it. parents have the right to be interested and to be engaged to push back against schools and school boards. elizabeth: congresswoman meeks, good to have you. we're coming into the bottom of the hour. still to come later in the show, the border crisis fueling a new epidemic inside of the drug crisis, marijuana laced with deadly fentanyl triggering overdoses. also this story, house gop doctors caucus member greg murphy. we'll stay on win winsome sears calling out the white house politicizing covid-19. hear reports dr. fauci is changing government definitions on his own, on the fly for supervirus research after the nih was caught funding it in china. keep it here on "the evening edit".

♪. elizabeth: today was the tsa deadline for all tsa workers to be vaccinated. this is the big question for you or any family members traveling this thanks giving, will the mandate create a travel nightmare, fly the unfriendly skies? getting ready for the airport, it is like preparing for a small military battle anyway. it is one of the busiest weeks of travel in the year and madison alworth has the story. good to see you. reporter: liz, i'm inside of newark international airport travelers have been coming in all day for thanksgiving this is the day deadline for the all tsa employees to be vaccinated. i have good news for travelers. tsa tweeting 93% of their workforce is compliant with the vaccine mandate. as for those not compliant, tsa says unvaccinated employees will be educated on the vaccine, but will still be able to be paid
and still able to work. despite this being the deadline, unvaccinated workers are still on the job. this is happening at one of the busiest times of the year. tsa expects to have 20 million travelers come through this week. they expect travelers to arrive two hours before their flight. some travelers take more time than that. >> we got here three hours before the flight. we assumed a lot of people here, was going to be packed. we're not familiar with this airport. we wanted to make sure we had plenty of time. reporter: as busy as travel has been today, it will peak on tuesday and wednesday and on sunday. liz? elizabeth: madison, great to see you. thank you so much. joining us now, congressman greg murphy with the house gop doctor's caucus. i want to talk about virginia's incoming lieutenant governor winsome sears, she says the white house and dr. fauci keep saying follow the science and flip-flopping back and forth with a lot of issues on covid-19. people understand the need to get vaccinated.
covid-19 is dangerous. what do you say to what winsome sears is saying? >> liz, this is what is so sad. i actually saw some patient this morning. they come in to trust you as a physician. the sad thing is, fauci has flopped so many times as we've gone through this pandemic. now he is saying that we may need a third, a third, the booster shot to say you're quote fully vaccinated. the sad thing is we can't trust them anymore. fauci has lost credibility. there is infighting at nih between the mandate and his senior leadership this is it what is difficult. the fact that the virginia lieutenant governor is bringing this up. also i think brings credibility to the fact that americans are sick and tired of it. elizabeth: dr. fauci had suggested the president is open to changing the definition of fully vaccinated to include boosters but now he is saying no to that. it still only involves the two shot regimen. let's watch lieutenant governor-elect winsome sears on
this. watch. >> you talk it has become politicized this covid-19 vaccine and it has. our president, president biden and vice president harris themselves both said they would not trust any vaccine that was developed by the trump administration. that was before their election. after their election they were singing a different song and now everybody has to be vaccinated. in fact president biden when he was candidate biden said that he would not force vaccines on us and here we are. well then his very own fda, 16-2 votes against booster shots. then what happened. he comes out, his cdc director says, they're going to have booster shots. which science are we following? then we hear at the border people are coming in with covid, no mask, no anything and they're being let into the general population but then the rest of us who are here have to mask up. what is the science? can somebody tell us what to finally believe? elizabeth: what do you say,
doctor? >> well, i, she brings up excellent points because the biden administration is don't do as i do, do as i say, sometimes i will say yes but sometimes i will say no to the same argument this is what caused the great confusion and distrust in the american government. biden, they finally let people fly into the country who had been vaccinated but open the doors to let folks come in from the southern border with no vaccine status. they don't make them wear masks or do anything. this is what is so tragic. we come together as a country, as we had hoped through this pandemic but sadly enough when this became political science, not medicinal science is what torn this country apart. who benefits? only the chinese. elizabeth: there is this, senator rand paul sent a criminal referral on dr. fauci to the justice department for allegedly lying under oath to congress, testifying his nih agency did not fund china's
research into supervirus to make them more deadly and contagious for vaccines. government documents show, yeah, the nih is doing that. dr. fauci tells msnbc that this gain of function research is completely meaningless term. "the washington post" is making up behind the scenes definition for it to avoid accountability. what do you say? >> yeah, that is exactly what he is doing, liz. it is exactly what he is doing, he talked about what the definition of gain of function was before. now the fact it was proven he was lying about this while testifying to congress, he is merely trying to lay down a defense plan when he is going to be you know, prosecuted for lying to congress. it is just very unfortunate. he had a pedestal. he could have been such a great leader, non-partisan leader but in highest position possible in infectious disease in the country. he has lost such tremendous credibility, it is very, very unfortunate for the american people and as a physician for medicine in of itself.
elizabeth: its tough. you're in a pandemic, right? research is coming in. you know i understand dr. fauci is trying to do his best. it's the idea you know, do you say yeah, i was wrong? here is where we're at now. you know what i mean. i think that is where we're at. dr. murphy, we ran out of time. congressman, thanks for joining us. come back soon. still to come this hour the border crisis fueling a new and deadly epidemic within the pandemic. a new crisis, connecticut, vermont hit with overdoses from deadly fentanyl found in marijuana. up next house homeland security ranking member congressman jon katko. police warn of a new and phenomenon, mass looting, retail theft. gangs are doing it across the country. the democrats experiment how to handle crime blowing up in their faces and it is hitting you. you're watching "the evening edit" on fox business. omization. that's why i love liberty mutual.

elizabeth: welcome back to the show new york congressman john katko. great to see you again. what did you think when you heard the story about the next level up in retail theft of these retail theft gangs doing mass looting? we had a massive smash-and-grab. they're moving from the cities into the suburbs t happened at a nordstrom in san francisco, suburb of walnut creek. 80 looters, ski masks, crowbars what do you say? >> that is what happens when you become apologists for criminals and start denigrating law enforcement ability to enforce laws. the pervasive lawlessness we have right now is indicative of what we're seeing now. we're seeing people who start out with, well maybe i grab a few things in the store throw it in my pocket now to organized criminal activity, going into a store with led pipes, guns, having a whole line of cars ready to take them away with all the loot they stole because they know there is no consequences.
that is what is happening across the country. it is really terrible. elizabeth: dozens of looters are still at large. they filled 25 cars with goods. they pepper sprayed, punched, kicked workers in the store. three arrested. some say it was insane like something out of a movie. it was so bad other stores and restaurants locked their doors. to your point what does is take for politicians to wake up? san francisco, excuse me, california, they basically downgraded theft if it was, $950 or less, you get hit with a misdemeanor, not a felony? >> i was federal organized crime prosecutor for 20 years before coming to congress. i headed homeland security for republicans. i can tell you based pretty much on my thirty years of experience doing this stuff, criminals know how much they can exploit the situation. when we open the door for them when we have these apologists d.a.s who handcuff the ability of law enforcement to do their job, couple that with bail
