"justice with judge jeanine" is up next. [♪♪♪] ♪. will: straight to a fox news alert. breaking overnight rioters setting fire to an i.c.e. building in portland forcing federal agents to come in and control the chaos. jedediah: quickly turns into a standoff between the rioters and agents with the agents unloading pepper balls to disperse the violent crowd. will: we continue to cover all aspects of that story. we go to maryland where a controversial police reform package is passed into the law. they actually overrode the governor es veto. it includes a repeal after officers bill of rights. the first state to do so.
jackie ibane-ez. reporter: this allows people to access officers internal affairs records and complaints. and stop of use of no-knock warrants. the governor hogan said this will erode police morale and public trust in law enforcement. defenderses says it is basic accountability. >> they do not sign like radical on kepts to me. they sound like professional customer experiences we ought to have when we interact with our government. reporter: hogan slammed the baltimore mayor's plan to slash the city's police budget calling it reckless. some in the city are growing frustrated with the halt of drug and prostitution prosecutions. things are not better in new york city showing officers harassed a brooklyn mom grilling
mayor de blasio what he is doing to stop rising crime. >> when i had to take my son down the block, i carry him right in front of so we can duck and cover to do that. >> it is very upsetting. i know we will turn the tide. new york city has before and we will again. reporter: let's hope so. the homicides in the city are up 20% this year while shootings are up to 56%. back to you guys. will: thank you so much, jackie. the climate across the nation whether in maryland or new york city when it comes to law enforcement. a new stat from vox cities where black lives protests officer-involved shootings, went down 15 to 20%. that amounted to pete and jed, 300 fewer police homicides. on the other hand in those same places where black lives matter protests took place, homicides in general, the hurt raid went up 10% that is additional to
1000 to 6,000 deaths per year in those towns. quite a stark contrast, when you're breaking this down statistically. you should know later on in the show we'll talk to law enforcement from both new york city and maryland. the climate, jedediah, not good across many states in this nation. jedediah: yeah and i don't think this gets better until a really good, a really hard conversation happens about how many different people feel about this issue. i think we all have to meet where, we realize that police forces are necessary, right? you need to be able to call someone. you need them to be able to come help you, particularly people who are not exercising their own second amendment rights. when a criminal is at your door someone needs to help, that person is a police force. we need to understand people around the country who feel because of incidents that emerged with how african-american men have been treated in the select instances
they feel there is not enough transparency in the police force. there is not enough accountability. this particular bill of rights that came out in maryland had some measures that people said look, this needs to be fixed. we need bad actors in the police community. let's face it there are bad actors in every profession. no one is exempt. wee all human. it may not be reflective of the larger force and is not in my opinion but these bad actors need to have accountability. we have to talk about these things and understand where everyone is coming from. everyone had different interactions with police. everyone has different experience in their own community. that is the only way this is going to get better in my opinion, pete. pete: yeah. looking at how it all comes together feels like we're putting a bill ol' target on the backs of law enforcements. we can have conversations. we look at everyone's perspective. when you start stripping away immunity, a stripping away of bill of rights regardless what
you're motivations are. you're taking actions against law enforcement who are just trying to do their job. you can train cops to be better, understand certain situation, when you're looking to defund the police, when you're stripping away qualified immunity as they did in new york city, you're creating a environment where cops don't want to do their jobs as aggressively as they ought in certain situations because they can get in trouble doing their job even if they do it the best they can in a impossible situation. this is slow motion unraveling, you have riots, slogans from marxist black lives matter, repeal of law enforcement by of rights passing legislature. governor hogan tried to veto it as he did and they overrode it on saturday. they are not going after is a called petty crimes, opposite of broken windows theory in new york city, which was successful. don't worry about the small crimes you're committing. we don't want to discriminate
against anybody. we won't differentiate. we'll see. fast forward a year from now. ben domenech a fox news contributor. big saturday show was on yesterday, and big sunday show as well talks about the big problems this creates. >> when you vote for someone like a giant fail monster like bill de blasio you will have bad things in your city. we're seeing a problem not just contained in new york, but spreading across the country. we have a mental health crisis, we have a homeless crisis. a number of people in cities across this country need additional help need to have some good leadership to replace this generational failure i think when it came to managing everything that went on over the past year-and-a-half. will: a good way to put that. a generational failure of leadership. take your pick. pete: giant fail monster. will: giant fail monster might be particular mayor in new york city, but a generational failure
of leadership could apply to some cities across this country right now, specifically on the issue of dealing with reforms to law enforcement. meanwhile we move to the federal government where the biden administration is called out for treating the border crisis as a capacity issue. what they're doing is continuing to build more facilities, opening a tent-like migrant facility in tucson, arizona, will have 1200 beds, they will find 1200 beds in hotels and arizona. sending migrant children all the way to michigan. we talked about that, whether or not migrants would be sent north towards the canadian border. maybe not all the way to the border you about 240 migrant children headed to michigan. 1200 hotel beds, tent-like facilities. jedediah, there seems to be a situation where there seems to be a deficit of leadership. jedediah: 100%, particularly because kamala harris was tasked with not sure what at this
point. it is very confusing what her role has or hasn't been down there there is no leadership by the current administration down there with seeing what is going on up close an personal. look, you can expand facilities they have to right now. they have no choice. because all of these people are here right now. they have nowhere to put them. as has been shown on several camera footage at this point, these spaces are crowded unsafe, particularly during the time of the pandemic. this doesn't get better until you stop incentivizing people from coming, we can't handle this number of people any one given time. you have to figure out why they're coming. figure out how to stop the pace because it isn't sustainable. if you want to say we'll take everyone in from everywhere which is not tenable, you can't do it all at once. that is common sense. as we've shown the processing centers how they are packed particularly where children are. chad wolf weighed in on all of
this. he talked about what we're saying. it is not just about building more facilities. there is a lot more to fixing the problem. here is what he had to say. >> at the end of the day if they continue to treat this crisis as capacity issue, continue to build more facilities, throw more and more money at it, it will encourage additional numbers of migrants coming across the border. we're in april, may, now, june, july, you will see the numbers increase until they start to get serious about enforcement of our laws on the southern border. we should take care of folks that come into our custody but you have to address the illegal activity going on to stem the surge that we're seeing today. we don't have the infrastructure built for this. the system is not designed to operate this way. so the biden administration is breaking the system at the moment. pete: they're breaking it as chad wolf said until they start to get serious about enforcement of our laws. we know they're not. they strip ability of internal enforcement of i.c.e. to deport people for any number of
reasons. they undid everything the trump administration did to create the detented. you have a government-paid voter drive. you're building facilities and paying for hotel rooms for migrants you know are coming in which of you hope will be voters for you in the future. you will not fix the problem. you're not going to address it. your base doesn't believe it. you don't have the intellectual fortitude or philosophy to understand why borders actually matter because your world is open and global. there is no set of tools available to this administration to take on the problem headlong. so they build more facilities. soft sided cages, call them what you want. doesn't matter what you name them. there is nothing serious about it. they're not trying to deter it. the story we keep covering as we will. but the outcome will not change. they're getting fatter building more facilities to hold the surge there is no end in sight to. will: the numbers are not subsiding they will continue to
grow. turning to a few additional headlines. two utah deputies are shot outside of the sheriff's office in salt lake county. they were doing routine checks when a man approached them opened fire, shooting them both in the face. one is in critical condition. the one in the face. the suspect is dead. did not say how he did. deputies have not been identified. a terrible story. newly unveiled las vegas loop by elon musk is called a strikeout. the transit system was promised to be a future experience, zipping people in driverless teslas, at speeds up to 150 miles an hour. musk says the project was simplified. the tunnel system features regular teslas that need to be manually driven only up to 35 miles-an-hour. a little different. lawmakers are looking to pass a bill require the national anthem be played before pro
sporting events the star-spangled protection act garnered sweeping bipartisan support. the texas lieutenant governor calling it quote a legislative priority. those are the headlines. pete: just unfortunate we have a place where the bill is necessary. you want cultural osmosis. will: patriotism is a act of choice, not a mandated act. we want citizens choosing acts not being forced to do so. pete: both sides of that one for sure. democrats moving closer to packing the supreme court, fearing trump's legacy will leave a lasting impact on the judicial system. fox news legal anist gregg jarrett calls their pushed a fantasy. that is next. ♪.

♪. pete: the biden white house taking a first step towards package court as they form a commission to look into the move but why are democrats pushing for the radical change? according to "the atlantic," because they're afraid of president trump's lasting judicial legacy, saying quote, trump's power won't peak for another 20 years. by the early 2040s, trump appointed chief judges will simultaneously sit atop nearly every appeals court in the country. that has to mortify folks on the left. here to react fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. gregg, thanks for being here this morning. you can tell the court-packing idea of it is a political power grab, maybe they're looking forward saying we're in serious
trouble with trump nominees in the system and soon to be charge. >> that is true the appointees by trump will have a lasting impact for years to come. he appointed more judges not just to the supreme court, but circuit judges but younger ones and conservatives which grow in seniority on circuit kurtz which decide 90% of the cases their view of the law will change accordingly. democrats especially joe biden and kamala harris are frantic about it. which is why they have decided let's change the game. we'll change the composition of the courts but court-packing. this is a misconceived fantasy. it really can't happen because to accomplish it, democrats would have to kill the filibuster in the u.s. senate. they don't have the votes to do that thanks to joe manchin who said he will not do it under any circumstances. there are other democrats who won't do it. you know, look at any of the
polling data, pete, you will see americans are dead set against the idea of court-pack. what did joe biden try to do? well let's call it something else, something innocuous. we'll call it, oh, court reform. that has a nice sound to it but that is just a euphemism. it is word flay, it is totally bogus. what is also bogus, when you know this, look at members he appointed for the commission to study court packing. it is packed with liberals. so think about that. the irony is lost on no one. a packed commission to study packing the court. pete: true. packed commission to pack the court. joe biden will be left, right, republican, democrat, conservative, liberal, you fill people who will ultimately do the bidding of white house. create a commission that creates the rational. "the washington post" saying not packing the court, added
additional justices. maybe term limits. you do see things will come out of the reform that they could pass in the senate? >> no, absolutely not. i don't think americans would stand for it. look, there is a reason why ruth bader ginsburg was against it, said so. stephen breyer recently said he is against it. they explained why. because it would erode the public's trust in the esteemed institution, the third branch of government, that is supposed to be sacred and independent, one branch of government with a brain, if you will. you know the founders were very deliberate about this. they established the third branch of government to be a backstop against a government excess and abuse of power and foolish ideas that trifle with the constitution and its worked
successfully for a great many years, but what joe biden has done unwittingly i think, handed republicans a political gift. because americans are against it, republicans will use this against them in the upcoming midterms elections and beyond. pete: backstop to foolish ideas, what scares the left so much, the headline of "the atlantic" article. the reality the backstop is there for decades to come whether they, whether they like it or not. gregg jarrett, thank you so much. appreciate your time. >> good to see you pete. pete: coming up the decision to move the all-star game out of georgia, poised to punish those not responsible for the legislation. u.s. army veteran, former texas gop candidate wesley hunt sounds off next.

♪. will: backlash continues in georgia over the state's verier i.d. law even with some protests near the masters in augusta. governor kemp highlighting who the boycotts will really hurt. >> minority-owned businesses hit harder than most because of a invisible virus by no fault of their own. and these are the same minority businesses that are now being impacted by another decision that is by no fault of their own. pete: here to react, u.s. army veteran and former gop
congressional candidate wesley hunt. thanks for being here. you make the woke decisions to make a move like this, who actually deals with it? >> the situation happening in georgia right now, i think it is fair for everybody to want a free and fair election process to strive to get better is something we all should strife to see. major league baseball cities to move away from georgia, only hurts the block community, particularly in atlanta that is 40% black. we talk about a 100 million-dollar week we took away from georgia, gave to colorado. in colorado they have similar election laws they're trying to amend as georgia so this doesn't make a lot of sense to me. jedediah: wesley, let me ask you quickly about voter i.d. laws. people come out says mandates voter i.d. particularly disenfranchises voters, particularly african-americans. what is your idea about that?
>> african-american family at large is insult bid this when i see my cousins and family we all have i.d. requiring somebody to have an i.d. to choose your leadership for your country should not be a very big deal. that is a very low bar. i got on a plane just last week f i can get on a plane, i have to use a credit card or anything that i do requires an i.d., i think voting and having i.d. to vote is something that is just kind of laughable to me. but they're using this to divide us. i think at some point in this country we have to recognize that for what it is and come together, to start to actually use measures that are going to make sure we have free and fair election, that everyone's vote counts and having i.d. does that. will: at some point you would hope that happen but that point seems very far away as corporate america buys the lies. continues toe submit to this narrative. i want to ask you about something else, when you ran for congress in texas you appeared in this advertisement, texas
reloaded including congressman dan crenshaw. yesterday crenshaw talked about his one, quote, good eye. he went on to say i don't really have a good eye. everyone has seen dan with his eye patch from battle wounds serving as a navy seal. his one good idea began to see dark spots. he learned his retina was deattached. he said the following on twitter. the blast from 2012 caused a cataract and extensive tissue damage to my retina. the always a possibility the affects to my damaged retina would resurfaced. that is what happened. the surgery went well, i will be effectively blind for a month. you have a previous relationship with dan. i want to ask you about that? >> i was with dan and his wonderful wife tara on wednesday. he gave a group to the people, i could tell he was a bit bothered, given the patriot he is you would never know.
he is the consummate professional. we wish him all the best. if anybody recovers it will be dan crenshaw. we need him. i know we i will be back. come on back, dan, brother, we need you. got bless you. you're praying for you. will: absolutely. jedediah: thank you very much, wesley. we're praying for the whole family, dan to have a speedy recover. >> god bless. have a good morning. jedediah: god bless you as well. coming up new york city's mayor takes to new heights as the city falls to a new low. talking about fun week as people suffer from pandemic restrictions and rising crime. that's next. ♪. when it comes to autism, finding the right words can be tough. finding understanding doesn't have to be. we can create a kinder,
disturbing, but there is no doubt that video in new york city, showing men harassing nypd officers on the street is disturbing. many businesses still struggle from the pandemic restrictions. but it doesn't seem to be bothering mayor bill de blasio. as he quote, has too much fun this week, visiting the theater, dropping by a tv set, riding a roller coaster. here to discuss, the founder of blue lives matter, nyc, joseph paritrice and hartford county, maryland sheriff. let me start with new york city, joseph, when you see the video, i want to hear your reaction, what do you feel when you see that happening on the streets of new york? >> frustrating, disgusting this is something that happens every single day. this is not an isolated incident. officers are being verbally and physically abused on a daily basis due to the political climate our politicians,
so-called leaders, have installed last couple of years. absolutely disgusting. everyone is locked up and fined you cannot do that. they do that to new york city police officers what do they do to the average citizen. will: you say this is climate created by new york city politicians. what have they done to create the climate. >> done everything to go against the police officers. reform act. diaphragm bill. qualified immunity they want to take away. every single day they make it blatantly clear they don't like officers. they favor criminals. we need politicians that will change things, actually care about the new york city citizens. will: statement from mayor de blasio's problem, number of crime is down and homelessness are decreased and number of businesses. new york city are winning. all you wet blankets are losing. you can't bring us down. stop going against our comeback. that is lame. fascinating saying businesses
coming back and crime is down. that depends on what you start counting the stats. before i have get to the particular issues in maryland, sheriff, i want do ask you, do you see similar types of incidents? do you feel a similar climate in maryland as one described in new york? >> i do believe we have those in the state and in baltimore city, some of the larger jurisdictions. i have to say here in my county, we still have a base of citizens, community members love our agency and our deputies. we don't see it to that extent, we see everyone filming, calling for badge numbers and legislation that maryland has just passed is going to aggravate, i agree with what your other guest says, as far as totally disgusting, watching that video. it is heart-breaking. these men and women signed up to make the community, their cities better and being treated like, worse than criminals. will: talk about specifically maryland, what you just mentioned, the new legislation
there. so the legislature passed a, calling it a law enforcement reform bill. the governor, republican governor, larry hogan wanted to veto the bill. now the legislature has over rode his veto in maryland. here are the new restrictions, reforms on law enforcement in your state. repeals officer's bill of rights. creates statewide use of force standard. creates newt disciplinary process. it limits the use of no-knock warrants. as a law enforcement officer in that state, you see the new bill before you, what do you think that will do to your law enforcement there in the state? >> oh, it is going to be devastating to the men and will of law enforcement. there are four bills, one house bills, three senate bills moved through the session of particular concern. there are is whole lot more out there. under the guise of police reform, it is not police reform, it is a lie against our good men and women of law enforcement spread across the country. maryland legislators embraced it
full-on. the law enforcement officers bill of rights, 40 years, chiefs and sheriffs had a process to hold people accountable t has worked because one police department, largest in the state, can't seem to get it working correctly, it is worked for everyone else. i'm in 36 years of doing this. i fired 17 people since i've been sheriff for integrity issues or other issues. it works fine but they thrown that out. they have now given us a new process supposedly. i think it will be nearly impossible to hold police officers accountable. the use of force standards, supreme court, 1979 came up with the objectively reasonable standard but our maryland legislators know a lot better. they changed it to necessary and proportional no one knows what that means. it is not defined. what it means is police officers are going to be monday morning quarterbacked. people will look at it after the fact, say was that necessary and proportional? you know, it is sad. if they are found to violate
policy, they have managed to make that a criminal offense and add 10-year jail sentence over a police officer's head. it is going to have chilling effects on recruitment, on retention, on the proactive police work that is necessary. maryland is up 40% in homicides. slaughters are going on in the, on the streets. will: right. >> and yet defunding police is all this is about. will: talking about the baltimore police department when you mention i assume. there is one particular police department that can't get this right. you talk about the new use of force standards. you're absolutely right no one can defined the terms. some court at some point will do so. monday morning quarterback something the perfect analogy for officers. i hope to speak to you in the future, sheriff, about retention and recruitment, to see what happens to the force after this law goes into effect. >> thank you. will: thank you, sheriff.
joe, thank you both very much for your time this morning. jedediah. over to you. jedediah: thank you, will. we'll turn to some headlines for you now. a california mother is arrested in a brutal killing of her three children. lapd says lily yana carillo led police on long distance chase after taking into custody. her children, three, two, six months were discovered by their grandmother stabbed to death inside of her los angeles area apartment hours earlier. a top michigan official partying it up in florida days after governor gretchen whitmer told residents not to travel. the deleted state coo patricia foster relaxing in the florida keys. her son couldn't make the trip because he was home with covid. foster is supposed to be leading the state's vaccine rollout is not responded with comment. they insisted foster was

morning. 22 in missoula. really cold hanging on. record breaking low temperatures for parts of the west coast. severe weather across areas of florida. we have more storms. another batch of storms will move through throughout the day. a little little bit of lightnin, damaging win. possibly a tornado springing up. all part of the same storm we are been plagued with last couple days with severe weather. last line of storms across parts of north florida. that will slowly linger off towards the south. northern side of the storm brings rain across the western great lakes. a rainy day across the northeast. a lot of that moisture lingers around much of the day tomorrow as well. temperaturewise. today, not looking that bad for everybody. a little bit of spring skiing going on. there you go, guys. will, your turn. will: that will probably hold up under cross-examination. jedediah: thank you, rick as always. rick: you bet.

♪. jedediah: a forth vaccination site closes after people report having adverse reactions to the johnson & johnson vaccine. the latest temporary closure is in georgia after eight people reported that reaction. similar incidents happening in colorado, iowa, north carolina. so is there cause for concern? let's ask fox news medical contributor dr. nicole saphier. doctor, welcome to the show as always. people see these reports. they become concerned. how concerned should we be? >> jedediah, the states shutting down johnson & johnson distribution now, of course when you see people having side-effects of the vaccine, reported dizziness, fainting,
nausea. you want to look at it, especially since johnson & johnson had production errors recently. the cdc looked at the north carolina batches, they are completely safe, completely fine. they have given them okay. what is actually causing them, don't necessarily no. is there possible there is needle aversion. possible standing in line for hours, to get the vaccine, all of sudden they get a little light headed? is it possible? a direct result from the vaccine? that is possible. these are not necessarily causes for concern. these are side effects. not necessarily more draws adverse effects we've seen with astrazeneca and blood clotting. johnson & johnson itself is under some investigation for some very rare occurrences of blood clots as well. jedediah: we have a statement from johnson & johnson. let me share that with you, we'll get your response. they shade there is no greater and priority of the well being of people we serve. we receive a adverse events with
individuals receiving our vaccines our assessment of the reports is shared with the u.s. drug administration and other appropriate health authorities. that is what they had to say. dr. saphier, what concerns people, you will expect a certain degree of adverse reactions from some segment of the population, what worries people, the process is shut down. uh-oh, something is happening line the scenes, we're not being told about, why would they shut down the process, that true? >> jedediah, of course they will shut it down. even at the very beginning of a thought something may be wrong, it would be prudent to shut it down to make sure they are able to evaluate, not thatting is being hidden, they're trying to be responsible. they review it. look at the lot. they make sure the lot is safe then they can resume. that is the right thing, safe thing to do to shut things down. jedediah: is there any, finally, we don't have a lot of time here, with respect to europe and these cases regarding the blood clots is there any concern about
that happening in the united states on a larger scale or any concern that people getting vaccinated now, that you're suddenly going to find out five years, 10 years, this is another question, it is okay, now, five years, 10 years, there are blood clot related orders to the vaccine? any concern from evidence or data you're seeing today? >> actually two studies came out of the "new england journal of medicine" the last week, shown a link to blood clotting disorders from the as interest as as the a vaccine. there are three reports out of three cases out of five million that have been administered. it has been a very rare occurrence. it does tend to happen two to four weeks following the vaccine. that is extremely important that we need to look into. jedediah: dr. saphier, thank you so much for being with us this morning. you have an amazing book coming out. not even in the promo. it is called panic attack. i can't wait to read it.
i can't help myself from saying that. thank you for being here this morning. >> thank you. jedediah: all right. coming up, we've all gotten phone calls like this one. take a listen. >> we're calling about your vehicle's manufacturers warranty. press one to speak with someone possibly extending or reintating your car's warranty. jedediah: get these every day.

like this one you're not alone. car warranty robocalls are topping the charts of complaints to the fcc. jedediah: how can we silence these unwanted phone calls? please tell us pete. will: the guy to tell us, is "kurt the cyberguy," to tell us with some of the tips and tricks. kurt, these are growing. seems like your phone is always ringing. >> it is not your imagination. great to see you, jedediah, pete as always. graduated from a rotary dial phone recently. to the world we're all in now it is not your imagination. despite 225 million-dollar record fcc fine given to a telemarketer last month who played one billion calls in less than five months, the industry is not slowing down. they're still calling because a lot of them are overseas. they're getting through to us, guess what, they're tricking us or they wouldn't keep doing it. here is what you want to do right now. if you get a call, first of all, don't interact at all.
hang up. don't press a button. don't try to argue with anyone, hang up whether a person or computer. number two, just report the number, do-not-call list. it is on the website. you know how to do that. millions of people. talked about that forever. one of the other things you can do, silence an unwanted call. whether you have an android or iphone like i have right here, you go into the settings, hit phone. there is one little thing, silence unknown callers. those unknown callsers are anybody who you have not texted with before or that is on your call list, or who is not in your address book. those people won't get through. there is great advantage just calming your world by doing that one trick. but the biggest trick of all is no matter who your carrier is, i have listed these all online, go to your carrier's tool, they're free. they try to up cell you, don't go for the up cell. see if the free ones work, at&t,
verizon, t-mobile, sprint, download the tool it, can help big time, reducing amount of people who are getting through with these annoying calls. pete: interesting, kurt. they know the make, model data of car from public databases is. they look low. but they're not. they're getting sophisticated. >> they're tapping into a lot of state registrations for vehicles are made public. they tap into the data space. pete, that f-150 pickup truck from two years ago, yeah, that is me. exactly. so fool us that way. but they don't know us. they're looking at some data. they're trying to sound familiar. and i love especially, i turned in a leased car. i still get the calls for that car. come on. will: you have an f-150? pete: i like an f-150. reading my mine, kurt. with the lift kit. thank you so much, kurt. joe biden flip-flopped on

♪. jedediah: good morning, everyone. that is the tampa sideline you're looking at, tampa, florida, tampa, florida, beautiful skyline. thank you for joining us. this is the 7:00 a.m. hour of "fox & friends weekend." i'm here with my friends will cain and pete hegseth bringing you the best in news always for four hours. welcome. will: good morning, jedediah. pete and i were having a vigorous debate during the commercial break that you and
your husband should get in on. pete has a brisket on this morning with his pellet smoker, two hours into? pete: two hours 43 minutes into smoking brisket. will: every guy i know is smoking brisket on a pellet grill. i hope yours comes out really good. pete: can't be too bad. jed, i got up at 3:45. went down in my underwear to the deck. turned on the smoker because, then i took a shower. got ready came down. put the brisket in. been in for two hours, 45 minutes. 225 degrees. will: excited about his bark. it i will was good day. jedediah: i love that you have the timer right there to look at, to get excited about. my husband does love a good brisket. i will definitely see if he wants to get into the business of making it. let's eat them, say that. pete: good future gift for him. a lot of our viewers have same passion. low on information, high on enthusiasm. we love the topic of smoking.
hope you have a good day as well. on to some politics with your brisket as well. we talked about yesterday, a lot, about the fact that joe biden announced a commission, a commission to identify reforms to the supreme court one of which include packing the court and he is also packed his commission full of lefties who are inclined towards some sort of a change. could it be adding justice to the court? that might be one step of it. "the washington post" has another idea in a headline out today, from an opinion piece that says, court-packing isn't the right fix for our courts, ending life tenure is. they're saying tenure to the, to justices on the court is the way to go. here is what the "washington post" says in the editorial board. encouragingly the broad mandate president biden assigned to the commission to extend what is valid area for potential supreme court reform. replacing tenure instituted in 1788 at a time of much shorter
life expectancy, with 18 year term, would drain intentsty from the politics with both parties with opportunities to nominate justices thus lowering the stakes of each vacancy. would allow the presidents nominate the most qualified, rather than youngest nominees. term limits should be high on mr. biden's commission's agenda. jed, what do you think of the idea? jedediah: typically i like the idea of term limits talking about congress. we're talking about the senate, we're talking about, i think a little bit differently about the supreme court. supreme court is a differencetution. you want those individuals to be vetted very heavily which they are. you want them to kind of be impervious to political structures. you don't want them to feel like they need to worry about what's happening politically and whether or not they need to change their mind about this or that. i don't know, to be perfectly honest with you. i have to think about it. i think it is interesting suddenly there is this massive
focus on the supreme court right now by democrats. there seems to be and urgency to fix what is going on. they feel they don't have the proper balance of power. they're looking for ways to address it. pete: which is more power. jedediah: media assistance. pack the court. maybe some of these people time for them to go. maybe should clear it out, whatever excuse seems to fit the way the wind is blowing today, there seems to be a little too much urgency to change the structure for my taste. will: the motivation behind "the washington post" headline and the motivation behind this commission and the motivation behind joe biden's desire to reform the supreme court is the key issue. quickly on the idea of putting tenure on supreme court justices, i don't, i don't hate that idea. they sometimes serve for 30, 40 years, well into their 80s. there is no particular reason that a supreme court justice gets better or more insulated pressure that the at at age of
80 than age of 60 after is a years versus 40 years. i think idea of a tenure, where at one point retired isn't the worst idea in the world but back to motivations for just one moment. the suggestion by "the washington post" or by the biden administration to reform the supreme court, isn't motivation to make the court less political. pete: that's right. will: that is the motivation to get idealogical brethren on the court. they don't like the idealogical make up of the current supreme court, they're looking for any excuse, any way to disrupt the balance. bus putting tenure on supreme court justices do so? possibly that will swing both ways throughout time. pete: same motivation for fdr. after any over age of 70 you could nominate. voila, six more justices for fdr he wanted political power. i don't hate the idea, if you do same term limits for members of congress and the staff.
permanent bureaucracy. term limits for everybody. will: i get it. pete: congress would ever do it. would do it for the supreme court, not themselves. all comes back to the motivation. urgency of the moment, there is one place they don't have power. it scares bee beejeeber out of the left. so anxious about the power of the court because donald trump was transformative in that space. here is the headline of the @lan i can. trump's power won't peak for another 20 years. by the early 2040s, trump appointed chief judges will simultaneously sit atop near every al appeals court in the country. jed, they're not looking at the supreme court, looking at the circuit courts where jed said earlier in the show, 90% of cases are resolved, trump will have power for decades. jedediah: i'm saying the idea in
of itself, look at idea of term limits maybe it is not a bad idea. it is urgency. it's a panic button hit. what can we do. let's hurry up, figure this out. they're not only looking at the balance of power they don't like now, which is odd, because they do have quite a bit of power, folks on the left in this corn moment, they're looking down the road. we spoke with gregg jarrett, fox news legal analyst on this very topic, we asked about trump's impact on the federal courts and what could this all mean. let's listen what he had to say. >> the appointments from donald trump will have a lasting impact for decades to come. democrats, especially joe biden and kamala harris are frantic about it. why they have decided let's change the game, we'll change the composition of the courts by court packing. what joe biden unwittingly i think handed republican as political gift. because americans are against it, republicans will use this against them in the upcoming
midterm elections and beyond. will: we'll keep you updated on that story as it progresses. meanwhile when joe biden was sworn in as president he signed executive orders ban being fracking on federal hands. he vowed to put climate change on the center of his policy making. when he did business owners feared what harm could come to the industry. there is debate what is in fact infrastructure in this country. kirsten gillibrand of new york said child care is infrastructure. a list of things, mayonnaise is infrastructure. the ability to create, harvest, refine, distribute, our nation's primary energy source. what would joe biden's policies do to the people that work in that industry. a look back what joe biden had to say on climate change and jobs. >> we're dealing with this existential threat to the planet and increasing our economic growth and prosperity are one in
the same. when i think of climate change i think, answers to it i think of jobs. it is about jobs. good-paying union jobs. it is about workers, building our economy back better than before. it's a whole government approach, to put climate change at the center of our domestic, national security an foreign policy. pete: so climate change is at the center. you worship at the altar of climate change n service of that other things need to go away like the keystone xl pipeline, things like fracking, old school energy sources an jobs tied and tethered to them. part of what you know, well you set up so nicely is the idea of the priorities of the administration. one article in the "new york post" in today's post and online as well, goes through interviews with people in the hard-hit areas were hit by the idea that the world will end in 10 years, the new climate warriors have to get rid of certain industries. that impacts people's lives.
one of the quotes stuck out in the article, the, ceo of risk of climate justice warriors harming industry. for horizontal fracking, hydraulic drilling. as exciting as past 15 years are for the region we are concerned what the future holds for cannonsburg, and western pa, pennsylvania. despite what we're doings, decisionmakers an elites are working night and day to deny you and your future. that is something that should not be taken lightly. jed, we have great jobs in places so bad, they worry every day will the elites who don't like their jobs get rid of them with the stroke of a pen like the keystone pipeline? jedediah: it is very scary. there is always this perception, people come from a place, they say climate change is a priority. we ideally want cleaner energy. i understand that i can see that. that doesn't mean you snap your finger. because the government decides we want cleaner energy, all of
sudden those industries immediately transition, all of those people who are currently employed in the industries suddenly have proper training for the new jobs? it doesn't work like that. it doesn't happen overnight. you have a lot of individuals around the country in these industries working hard, contributing. they feel they're doing a great job, great service to the community and they're scared. they don't want their job to be taken over by the snap of a government finger. we all understand that we can have debate about cleaner energy. understand who is at risk, what you need to do. you need to train people. you need government involvement then. i'm not a big activist for government involvement. if government will cripple industry, maybe government needs to have a plan to transition the individuals, so it doesn't make their lives impossible, for them to survive, see their families because of a government decision in the heat of the moment? will: government should stay out of business of transitioning people to new jobs. let the market play out. jedediah: then they have to stay completely out, right? stay completely out, or if you're going to step in, you're
going to cause a problem, you have to figure out a way to help the people. pete: the problem, jed, today's chime mat act activists this is way to improve a little bit. the world will end. your life has to change. this is what we do with a global scheme. they're in charge. jedediah: all or nothing world, no question. we'll turn to some headlines for you right now this hour, right now a hawaii hotel is on lockdown after an armed man barricaded himself in a room and fired multiple shots through the door. roughly 100 guests are hiding in the hotel ballroom as police are negotiating with the man. no injuries are reported at this time. we will continue updates on this developing story. there are now calls to investigate how black lives matter spends its money after its leader goes on a multimillion-dollar buying bing. according to property records obtained by the "new york post," patrice bought this $1.4 million property outside of los angeles last month. she spent half a million school

well-said. will: darrell, let me ask you this the complaints over the georgia bill, the reason the all-star game was moved from atlanta were designed, at least what they were sold as protections for african-american voters in georgia. you are african-american. you are also a small business owner. who do you think was looking out for your interests when you look at entire, i don't even want to call it a debate, this entire ordeal? were your interests being protected? >> i don't think our interests were being protected. i think we got caught up in the crossfire between some of the larger corporations and major league baseball. we're ending up being guys that suffer the most. small businesses is the heartbeat of america. without small businesses our economy would be in the toilet. unfortunately you know, we got caught in the crossfires. i do believe that we have issues like this should be settled at ballot box. i'm for having the right to vote
and everybody to be inclusive in voting but this seems to be a little bit more about, more than voting. that it has spilled over in a pandemic year, coming out of a pandemic year even hurt us even more. it is just ashame we can't come together, to have a conversation, figure out a better route. instead of taking the all-star game out of atlanta to denver which has a similar situation. it doesn't make a lot of sense. will: last question to you, andy, seems like nothing is divorced to politics. everything is intricately connected, whether baseball or selling po boys, it seems like politics has to be part of your equation now, doesn't it? no certainly. will: certainly. as darrell said, neither nor, or i, most georgia voters did have anything to say about this. this was shoved down our throat. we have to deal with it.

operation of smugglers and cartels that are taking advantage, exploiting individuals and distracting, by the way, the customs and border protection as they are dealing with 170,000 migrants per month, there is all sorts of nefarious activities taking place, gun trafficking, drug trafficking, and sex trafficking as well. this is what the border profession told us. quite frankly the president and vice president can stop it right now by just reverse, the executive orders they put in place on january 20th that have led to this surge. jedediah: representative wagner, we've seen a lot of photos, images have emerged with the crowding, particularly during a pandemic. we hear a lot of new processing centers will have to be opened up. given what you've seen, being there front and center in person, is it shocking to you that vice president harris may be, if it is involved with immigration at all, hasn't made
the trip face-to-face herself? >> completely ignoring the entire humanitarian and crisis they have created at border. this should be laid at the feet, the fault of president joe biden. i was down at the border in 2019. when i saw the kind of influx ever illegal migrants coming across the border. you know what? president trump acted. he put three policies in place. remain in mexico policy which was apply for asylum in the u.s. but stay in mexico. the cooperative asylum program that he had with the central, south american countries, with nicaragua, el salvador, guatemala, don't make the journey. stay in central america before you come. third, was the public health cooperative order put in place, title 42, making sure during a pandemic in particular that people were not flooding across our border. as a result of these failed and
open border policies, catch-and-release policies we witnessed in the rio grande valley, we're seeing crime come to the interior, to the states, my home state of missouri. we're seeing crime come. we're seeing covid and disease coming. we're also seeing costs, long-term costs, jedediah, to the american public and taxpayer in terms of social services. in terms of public health and safety. and in terms of education long term. this is a crisis that was created by joe biden, sustained by he and kamala harris and they can stop it if they would just reinstate the trump policies that worked. >> congresswoman mallotakis, congresswoman wagner cited those policies. remain in mexico was cited the most. is this political? is in unwillingness on part of administration we made a mistake, this is not sustainable. we need to look back at some
policies, give it a second look but politically they just can't do it? >> they need to go visit the border and speak with the customs and border protection we spoke with. they will tell them the policies president trump had in place were working this is not. i don't know how any leader can turn over our borders to cartels, to a criminal organization. cpb is completely overrun. they don't have the manpower. they are diverted. they have to sit in the facilities. they need to process individuals. they are supervising unaccompanied minors. the migrants are being exploited. of course the american citizens this is coming at a tremendous cost. this is not fair for anybody involved. if the vice president would just go there i know that she will say the same thing that we are saying today because no one can deny this is a crisis. 15-year high, completely unsustainable. it needs to be reversed. admit they're wrong, reverse the policies.

pete: as president biden prepares to roll out the first major tax hike in almost 30 years a new fox special is tracing the long and complex relationship between taxpayers and the government dating all the way back to the founding of our country. >> if you believe that you're endowed with the right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, you get a little prickly when the taxes don't look right. that is different view of universe, first and foremost is the king, you get what's left over. jedediah: our next guest is one of the experts who contributed to the unauthorized history of
taxes airing tonight at 10:00 p.m. vice president of freedom works, author of, when politicians panicked, john tamny joins us now. john, thank you for joining us and this is obviously at a fascinating topic particularly at time taxes are ready to hike up. people feel like taxation prevents them in their pursuit of happiness. you work really hard. you make your money. suddenly, half of it sometimes vanishes. so what do you say about that in terms of the american spirit? >> it has to be remembered that the u.s. was the first nation in the history of the world founded on skepticism about politicians and limiting their power. so for americans it is in their dna that tax cuts are certainly, there is an economic argument for them, but the biggest argument for americans, they feel government takes too much of what we earn. that our work is our expression of liberty and so when government overbears on us, takes too much in the way of taxation it is taking away the
purpose, our purpose of getting up each day. so americans are wired to dislike taxes. pete: john, the brits in the past taken it to the next level though. you're in this special, let me play a sound bite a portion of what you talk about in the unauthorized history of taxes. listen. >> in the 1960s and '70s britain's high taxes were enough to drive some of their most successful bands like the rolling stones to leave the country. >> they said there is no way to work to give all of our production to someone else. pete: the rolling stones, taxes in the uk, i had no idea, were as high as 83 and 98%? >> imagine that, 83% on income. 98% on capital gains as keith richards said in his autobiography. they basically told to us leave. they did. the rich are most mobile in avoiding taxes. the rolling stones went to the south of france to record exile
on main street, arguably their best album level. the people who could not move, the sound engineers, caterers, all those that contribute to making of an album. whenever you raise taxes on the rich you put a bull's-eye on the rich and that certainly happened in england in 1970s. jedediah: people are inclined to work hard. but when you work hard, you feel like the fruits of that babe bore vanish, that sends a message, does it not? >> without question. taxes are a price, penalty raised on work. when you raise the price of working, people work less. ronald reagan would stop working in certain years when he was making movies. there was no reason to continue. you cause people to move their production elsewhere. we've seen this throughout time. americans are restless amid abundance in the united states. they migrate to better tax opportunities here. we've seen it around the world. we descend from people who
rejected overbearing governments. many instances risked it all, crossing oceans and borders to get to a better tax situation. pete: what a topic. unauthorized history of taxes you will hear something, airs tonight on the fox news channel. the full series, like the one about socialism, which is amazing, available on "fox nation" tomorrow. great content. john, thank you so much. jedediah: thanks, john. pete: supreme court sides with relidging rulings, lifting restrictions on gatherings in homes in california a pastor praising that decision joins us live next. ♪ cal: our confident forever plan is possible with a cfp® professional. a cfp® professional can help you build a complete financial plan. visit letsmakeaplan.org to find your cfp® professional. ♪♪

judgments beyond our level of expertise. i tried to be very cautious. i'm happy to be flexible, to seek the common good, take every precaution. part of what influences my thinking right now is the season we're in right now as opposed to six months ago or even one month ago. cases being down. many people being vaccinated. seems though we're at at point, if all the other places can open up, seals reasonable to think, think of people who grieving right now, want to gather with other like-minded believers. they want to worship god. that is the most important need we have. you can go bowling but couldn't go to the church if the church meets inside of someone's house. that does not seem right. pete: very sensible. pastor gavin ortlund. first baptist church of o.j. ai. appreciate it. florida governor's ron desantis in the spotlight facing attacks from the left and the media of

police departments. enacting laws will not be so easy to tweak and to increase and decrease as time goes on like budgets. and everybody wants to solve the problem that you pointed out, jedediah, a problem that does exist in this country that at times there is an overreaction from law enforcement. but it's a problem that's been vastly, vastly overstated. and you can't go about solving that problem by creating larger ones like rising crime rates and the trunks of law enforcement -- destruction of law enforcement offices across this country. you cannot sacrifice the greater good for a problem that does exist. pete: that's right. and all the activists pushing for these measures, who do they call when they're in trouble? we know who they call. and have they walked one moment in the boots of those who have to do the difficult things when they get that phone call. so you can talk all you about about the use of force, but until you're the one with a belligerent suspect in a
situation you can't control, it's hard to lay down the parameters of exactly what that looks like. that's -- part of what this measure does in maryland is hand civilian control over to decision making that otherwise had been at the police agencies. which reformers will say, hey, that's what we want. we think the police are corrupt. police will say we understand what policing looks like and the kind of defense that sometimes law enforcement officers need. but the legislature passed this, the governor vetoed it, it was overridden, and now the police are in a much more difficult situation. and we did an interview with sheriff jeffrey mcdoweller on these so-called reform bills. here's what he said. >> it's going to be devastating to the men and women of law enforcement. i think it will be nearly impossible to hold police officers accountable. police officers are going to be like monday morning quarterbacks. people are going to look at it after the fact and say was that necessary and proportional? it's sad. it's going to have chilling effects on recruitment, on
retechnologies and on the proactive -- on retention. 40% of homicides, slaughters are going on on the streets, and yet they're defunding police is all this is about. pete: you know, jed, real quick. the word that comes about is proactive. why would you want to be proactive. if. jedediah: yeah, you mentioned before, pete, before this clip that some people feel that the police are corrupt, and i think that's true. i think there's a segment of the population that just with has decided all police officers are bad, no matter what they're made that decision. then i think there's another segment that wants transparency, accountability for bad police behavior which does pop up here and there, but they also want good police officers to be able to do their jobs. and that's where you find that fine line. i looked at the bill of rights that we were talking about in maryland. there were some things i didn't love, allowing officers to wait five days before being
interrogated for something, the language around some of the justification of legal force, but my reaction wouldn't have been let's repeal it, it would have been let's sit down, let's hear how everyone feels about it and look at maybe changes it. what happens is you go all the way this way, and someone comes in and we go all the way that the way, and as a result you have police feeling not respected. who do i call if i'm in trouble, that doesn't work. so there has to be somewhere with, to me, where those conversations happened where things get modified, where things get addressed, but it doesn't blanket the whole police community. will: that's because this moment has been co-opted by a radical group of people who believe all cops are bad or believe that officers accused in one of these situations should not even be afforded due process. you've seen the language and calls for activism, and
politicians at least in the state of maryland are giving in to that mentality. pete: that's right. will: but we move on. on the heels of major league baseball pulling the all-star game out of georgia, georgia small business owners are blasting what they see as a complete destruction of their business in that state. i spoke earlier to carol anderson who owns a limousine company in atlanta and a georgia restaurant owner on what exactly will happen to their businesses and what they expected to happen around the all-star game. >> we're -- at the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic. and just like the pandemic hit us, now the major league baseball all-star game. and it's like déjà vu all over again. we got caught up in the crossfire between some of the larger corporations and major league baseball. and we end up being the guys that suffer the most, which are
small businesses. >> it doesn't make sense, you know? it's going backwards instead of forwards. we got ourselves through covid running small businesses, and everybody, you know, we're looking forward to going up instead of going back down. pete: so true. you know, the late are, great rush limbaugh used to talk about the drive-by media meaning they'd target something and get everybody ginnedded up about it and then move on to something else. now they're the drive-by woke. they jump in, they make a big old mess, they virtue signal to us that you're so great, and then we move on the all-star game and move on. someone to call a racist. and everyone else that's left behind sits in the carnage in the lack of opportunity that no longer exists in atlanta. as the executives fly to the masters also in georgia to watch golf. will: a lot of mangled buzzes on the side of -- businesses on the side of the road.
activists move on to their next target. disgusting, jedediah. jedediah: it's the heartbreaking. and, you know, we interview these people because you have to showcase, these are people, i mean, it could really break your heart. we got through covid, we got through the pandemic, we somehow figured out how to sustain our businesses, and we had something to look forward to. maybe this could be the boon that could lift us out. it's something positive to look forward to for your business, for your family, and then they get slammed begun. so you hear these stories and you just say to what end and how much can these people and businesses endure in the name of what? someone came in and made a statement the, they felt good about themselves and now everyone else is suffering? it's a very, very sad state of affairs. and the other interesting thing that's merged through covid is i think the way politics has highlighted leadership of different kinds. we've talked a lot on this show about andrew cuomo and what happened in new york, we've
compared that with gavin newsom, and the one person that's really to do out from that pack if has been ron desantis who was very bold when he enacted a lot of policies in florida that kept things open, and he's deemed a threat to many. many see him as a threat. check out this new york times headline, could ron desanities the be trump's gop heir? he's certainly trying. mr. desantis' political pa maneuvering and extension -- extensive network -- the governor's brand of libertarianism or competent trumpism as one ally call it is on the ascent. opposition to social media censorship and vaccine passports, he has forged strong connections with his party. i think, actually, it's a lot simpler. i think he's a guy that looks like he's in charge. i think his statement was challenged -- state was
challenged, as was every state this past year. i think he stepped up to the plate and exerted leadership in the face of a lot of media criticism is. and i think the numbers were very much on his side. when you saw the covid numbers in florida, they were comparable to places like california which all the businesses got shut down, people fled the state. instead, guess what? people are moving to the state of florida. so he has emerged as a shining light. people like to frame him as trump, look at his own leadership. that is why he is standing out right now. will: ron desantis, governor ron desantis is a front-runner for the 2024 republican presidential nomination. outside of former president donald trump, i would suggest ron desantis is your next most likely candidate, and that is why 60 minutes is putting out hit pieces targeting ron desantis. that is why northeastern governors have encouraged the lingo that calls him -- that is
why everyone in the mainstream media has gone after him. be clear, he has led by example, and he is now, because of that, rising to the forefront of leadership. pete: you're right, will. fire up the resistance machine. that's exactly what they're doing in the media against ron desantis. we showed the headlines in "the new york times"es. the one you click on online is a little bit different. it says why ron desantis is such a political threat to the democrats. you can't print that in this print edition because all the lefties in new york would shudder. [laughter] ultimately, the one thing i would take the issue with, i think desantis will try to downplay the idea of competent trumpism. that probably won't resonate very well with him. we did build the wall and installed justices and operation warp speed, all of that, so he'll stand on his own, but also if you watch him, his mannerisms9 and the way -- there
is a lot of similarity to donald trump which i think the base is looking for at this moment too. so if you're a target, then you know you're on target, and ron desantis is. [laughter] additional headlines this morning starting with this, overnight if rioters set fire to an i.c.e. building in portland forcing federal agents to come in and control the chaos. it quickly turned into -- the agents unloaded pepper balls. is that okay? can they do that? no arrests are reported even though they set fire. congressman dan crenshaw announcing he will be blind for about a month of after undergoing emergency eye surgery. the texas republican had to have the retina reattached after noticing dark, blurry vision. the former congressional candidate joined us earlier saying crenshaw is showing nothing but bravery. >> i was actually with dan on wednesday of this week, and he gave a speech to a group of people.
and i could tell that he was a bit bothered. but given the true soldier that he is, you would never know. he doesn't chain, and he is a championship mate professional. we wish him all the best. pete: crenshaw, a navy seal veteran, lost his right eye in afghanistan in 2012. he remains optimistic about the surgery saying he will get through it. and we are pulling for him all the way. a girl challenges a police officer to a race, but little did she know he's a former college football player. she asked pittsburgh officer andre wright if he was up to the challenge during a community walk, but she didn't expect him to be so quick. there you go. police posted the video on facebook saying no one told her the officer played football at the university of pittsburgh, and so she got smoked. yeah. will: pitt, my fifth most tortured fan base -- pete: from your podcast.

all. and what was your second question? i'm sorry. jedediah: yeah, i was just asking if the teachers, doing all of the sanitizing, i'm just checking -- >> oh, teachers. yes, there is one day a week in our county, on wednesdays, where everyone is virtual. but on the four other days a week, the teachers are in the classroom every day, and the students have the choice to be in the classroom or be virtual. jedediah: okay. now, the cobb county school district released a statement on their covid-19 approach. they said in october we invited all press to see these technologies in classrooms firsthand. representatives from each company answered dozens of questions from press outlets, our board and the public at large. this solution is one part of our covid-19 response which has included support for students, staff and community. what's your response to that statement? >> my response is we weren't able to get the data about if
these technologies are even proven to work. there are three members of the board that voted against this because they asked for information, and it was not provided during these board meetings. and the parents also want to know, we've been reaching out through e-mails, phone calls and making public comments, and the board is just passing the approval without providing the data we're asking for. jedediah: now, you're a parent, so what do you want to see prioritized instead of these things? >> i want to see expenses made on products that are proven to work. i mean, the district says they follow the science and they follow cdc guidelines, but we don't have soap stocked in every bathroom, we don't have warm water in every bathroom, and the cdc has just come out to say that all you really need is soap and water. we can't even get the basics, and we're spending millions on unproven technology. one of these products, the hand
rinsing machines, has never been sold to any customer in our district. we are the very first customer. it's never been tested on children, it's never been tested on school settings in the u.s. so it just seems irresponsible to be putting the money towards these products. jedediah: these are common sense points and common sense questions that you're asking. looking at these technologies, i have to say they look very advanced, and very advanced technologies are very, very expensive, is so these are fair questions that you're bringing to everyone's attention. thank you for being here. it's important to note we also reached out to the companies that are behind the devices in cobb county schools. we have not heard back as of yet, but we will continue to provide information on that if we do. thank you, stacy. >> thank you so much. jedediah: still ahead, we have kayleigh mcenany, jason chaffetz, maria bartiromo and more. stick with us. ♪ ♪

people leads to higher levels of recidivism which means that it creates more insecurity in our community. a.b. 1127 is something that will make our community safer. will: our next guest lost her brother, ontario courtney, to gang violence, and under gascon's policies the then-17-year-old shooter will likely be out by the age of 25. asia courtney says criminals need to be held accountable, and she join me now. of course, we're very sorry for your loss. let's talk about ontario for just one moment. he was murdered by a 17-year-old. i know he had several children. he had just had a daughter that had turned 5, and i think the key point here, asia, and i'd love you to tell me about this, is that under gascon's new law, the defendant's previous juvenile offenses wouldn't be used in sentencings, and this particular criminal had had several before he turned 17. >> that is true.
this individual was one of four who were actually involved in the shooting. and he actually had four prior offenses that were escalating in violence. and part of the problem is that the system didn't catch him from age 12 to 17 before it culminated in murder. and they're talking about a system of rehabilitation. when he was offered service after service, he refused. and if he may not have been on the street had actions been taken prior to this to be involved in my brother's murder if, that may have changed what happened that night. will: right. >> and, unfortunately, this is, these policies are giving way to more violence because at the end of the day, we're talking about violent offenders that are being allowed to be on the streets. and you're saying you're going to wipe their strike expenses is they get a clean slate at 18 years old when we know they have
a history of committing violence. will: right. so many red flags in that individual's life up to that moment, and gascon wants to wipe that all clean. you hear him in that clip say, you know, times the human brain isn't fully formed until the age of 25. of course your brother who, by the way, his car broke down in a gang-related area, and i read they mistook him for a rival gang member and then gunned him down. what do you think e when you hear those words from george fast cone? >> honestly are -- gascon? honestly, this is a misguided notion that's happening right now. it's saying that because the mind is not developed until 25, that they can't be held responsible for crimes that they commit. all of us know and understand that's not true. anybody who has children understands that children know at very early ages what's right from wrong. now, does the prefrontal lobe
have to do with impulse issues? yes. but that's only one part of the picture that we have to look at here. what we're saying is that the developing brain is -- with the environment and understanding exactly what it can do and what it can't. by not punishing these criminals, in fact, it is okay to commit these offenses. gangs are going to take that as a green light to continue putting these young people out on the treat and committing these offenses, and that's what we're trying to stop. there was no excuse and no reason for my brother to be gunned down, but he was. it was the result of gang violence. will: such a good point. such a good point that it may be that our world view isn't fully formed until the age of 25, we don't have our political thoughts or philosophies fully worked out, but we can understand basic right from wrong, we can understand it's wrong to gun someone down in the prime of their life. and if we violate that, as you point out, be held accountable.
because if we don't, we're asking for more of the same, as you point out. we're saying it's okay. aja, again, sorry for your loss and thank you so much for telling the us about not just your brother, but what's going on in los angeles right now with the district attorney's office. >> absolutely. thank you guys for shedding a light on what's happening and what's going on in my brother's case. will: we reached out to gascon's office but haven't heard back. harry reid returns defending his change to the filibuster as progressives push to get rid of it altogether. jason chaffetz here next to react. philadelphia. schmear perfection.

on the book. it is apt. do you really believe march arely reid has no regrets? >> i think he's probably one of the most dishonest people to ever serve in the congress. but i got that tell you -- gotta tell you, let me decipher what he's saying. what he's really saying is he found a way to manipulate the process and work in a non-bipartisan way. because the founders, the way they created the house, the senate and the presidency, that's not a glide path to do things fast and easiment -- easy. he wanted just one-party rule. he didn't reach out across the aisle. i was serving in congress in the house of representatives at that time. so what he's really saying is i found a way to make it better than what thomas jefferson decided and decided to go a whole totally different way, and that is exclude republicans and just do one-party rule. and that is so, he is being with very dishonest when he says what he said because he manipulated
and changed literally a hundred-plus years of precedent and experience there in the united states senate. will: jason, i think it's important to underline that, not overlook the idea that the senate was designed to be -- i don't remember the exact phrase, it was designed to slow things down, right? slow down the legislative the process, think over something while the house is the passionate branch of the legislature, the one that's most response i. and every time i turn around the democratic party is trying to undercut those structural mechanisms that the constitution put in place. >> that's right. you know, why do you have a house and the senate? it's because you don't want this quick glide path. they're supposed to be the most deliberative body on the face of the planet. they don't debate nearly enough, but to bout and change -- go out and change the rules the way harry reid did, the body has never been the same, and it's for the worse. jedediah: jason, "the new york times" editorial board has
called for a return to the iran nuclear deal. here's the headline from "the new york times", maximum pressure on iran has failed, a return to the nuclear deal is the first step out of the morass. what do you make of it? >> as if i didn't need another reason to just despise the iran nuclear deal, now "the new york times" comes out and proves my point. [laughter] if you point to one thing that a donald trump did exceptionally well, it is create peace and prosperity around the globe x. part of that was taking care of what was going on in the middle east. iran understands one thing and one thing alone, and that is strength. i believe in that ronald reagan adage of peace through strength. you look at the deals that donald trump put in place with israel and the middle east countries there, moving forward with the abraham accords, all of those types of things that we're moving toward, iran was on its heels. we were supporting the people of iran, not the regime there, and here we go trying to just blow up what donald trump did because
they don't like donald trump as opposed to doing what was working. this was working under donald trump, and i think the world is a more dangerous place. real quickly, look at what's happening in taiwan. you have china surrounding taiwan. you have russia moving troops into the border of ukraine, and you have iran marching forward. and this is the first 75 days of the biden administration. things are getting worse, not better. jedediah: thank you, jason, as always, and congrats again on the book. >> thank you. jedediah: we're going to turn to some headlines now for you. police released dash cam footage showing the deadly february shooting of new mexico officer, the video may be graphic, it shows the suspect shooting officer jarrett multiple times during a traffic spot. the suspect was arrested after a 40-mile police chase. and take a look at this, a

going to be the biden administration, an administration that believes -- the administration that is going to be defining extremism are the same people that believe your constitutional rights are not absolute. yo so i don't think that's a good combination, and we with all know how this is going to go. part of the second amendment, you're extreme. you wear a mag a a hat in your off time, you're extreme. you voted for president trump in the 2020 election, you're extreme. so it's concerning to me and, ultimately, pete, i think the united states military should be focused on loyalty for the united states of america, readiness and accomplishing the mission. pete: it makes so much sense, but that's not what will happen. we're hearing critical race theory now being taught at west point as well. how dangerous is it that the military is not apolitical, but it's becoming partisan on oned

returning to class to which he was later suspended and then kicked out. will: here to react, dr. everett piper. dr. piper, the facts in this case are pretty fascinating, and that's what the court said, by the way. it would move past summary judgment to a trial to understand the facts of this case. it appears as though the student simply questioned -- it was a back and forth between the presenter and the student on the topic at hand, and there was some cross-examination, some questions asked. and i guess that was entirely inappropriate in a university system in virginia. >> well, this is the nature of the academy. this is what has become of the ivory tower. education isn't supposed to be a safe place. education is supposed to be a place to learn. you're supposed to learn that disagreement is good, a little cognitive dissonance might be good. you're supposed to learn the goodness of intellectual freedom

♪♪ will: good morning, america, how are you? that's your native son, city of new orleans. welcome to "fox & friends." will cain, pete hegseth and jedediah bila. pete: good morning to all of you. thank you for watching us and making us the most-watched morning show on cable television. we are honored. we're grateful that you do so. in fact, my last diner was in new orleans, doc's diner. folks there were fantastic.
and an update on my brisket, it's now been in the smoker for 4 hours and 43 minutes, and i'll be eating it in 6 hours. hope you have a brisket. jedediah: i love that you have the timer. i bet you can almost taste it. i know you, pete. good for you for planning, and thank you, everyone, for joining us. beautiful skylines throughout the morning, tampa, miami, now new orleans, i know you're joining us from around the country. we appreciate that every single weekend, and we're going to start this hour with the crisis that's happening, unfortunately, at our southern border. and it is a humanitarian crisis. the biden administration is currently being called out for treating that crisis like a capacity issue. they're continuing to build more facilities, there are tent-like migrant facilities in tucson, arizona, 1200 beds in hotels in arizona and texas. it seems as though these facilities are popping up more and more because they have to. there are a lot of people here right now and they don't, frankly, know what to do with
this volume of people. the problem here instead of talking about why this happened and instead of doing something to prevent more people from coming at this moment in time, they simply seem to be expanding the facilities, and this juxtaposed with the fact that vice president kamala harris has been charged with doing something, unclear, when it comes to immigration, to look into root causes, whatever it may be, but has not herself gone down to that southern border as many congressmen and women have done at this point, as many senators is have done at this point. so that's leaving a bad taste. they're unclear what her role is and not sure why this administration if doesn't have more presence at the border right there to look, to show media, to talk about what's going on and to have answers as to how no prevent this problem from growing. will: two quick points. number one, the best analogy for how to handle the border crisis, to me, has always been this: when your bathtub is
overflowing, you don't begin mopping until you turn off the faucet. it's true you have to find a place to house these illegal immigrants, but you have to begin to stop the flow. you have to tackle the border cry ace is the -- crisis at the border. you can't throw money at hotels, tent cities and into central america and hope that the water stops running. chad wolf, former acting dhs secretary, said just that. listen. >> at the end of the day though, if they continue to treat this crisis as a capacity issue and continue to build more facilities and throw more and more money at it, it's only going to encourage additional numbers of migrants coming across that border. so we're in april now, so april, may, june, july, you're going to continue about to see these numbers increase. until they start to get serious about enforcement of our laws on that southern border, we should absolutely take care of these folks that come into our custody, but you have you have to address the illegal activity that's going on to stem the surge that we're seeing today. we don't have the infrastructure built for this. the system is not designed to
operate this way. the biden administration is breaking the system at the moment. will: and my second point, pete, is this: you mentioned diners a moment ago, you did a diner in new orleans. i did a diner on the southern border just this past week, and i hear this over and over, i don't know if you've encountered the same mindset. who's pay oringing for all of t? all of this housing, the infrastructure, the hotels? we know the answer. the american taxpayer's paying for this. pete: yeah. i felt the same way myself. nobody, we're just printing money. we're way out of la la land here. there's no balance sheet that ever balances. it's future generations that are ultimately going to pay for it in some sort of a, in some way that we can't even quite imagine yet how it'll all come together or come apart. you mentioned an analogy, will. it's like if i ate too much brisket today and kept eating and eating and eating and gained 100 pounds, i could say i just buy bigger pants. [laughter] that is the analogy at the
border. just more facilities. we're not doing anything about the actual border issue here, and that's the sad part because it's the biden administration that's separating kids from if their parents. every time you read a story, and this aren't many of them -- there aren't many of them, but there's a few trickling out of these kids who have crossed and they can't find their parents or they can't find anyone, and the parents can't find them. that's been created because of the policies of the biden administration which is separating those kids from their parents and then putting them in cages that you can't call cages with an outcome you have no idea all for what purpose. we don't know. they're not stopping it. it feels political to a lot of us who are watching. will: turn the united states into a big and tall store. pete: there you go. [laughter] jedediah: i would like to see, i would like to see that, if you gain that weight and wear those bigger pants. just a side note. in this whole conversation, i referenced earlier the vice president because when i first
heard that vice president kamala harris -- and i know a lot of people had skepticism about is she the right person, but i was glad to see that she was going to be involved. i said they need to get down there, they need to show their faces, allow media access, so i was hopeful that would happen. that is not what has happened. she's been largely absentee leaving a lot of of us wondering what is she doing? research behind the scenes? i'm not really sure. i don't think a lot of people are sure. this is a headline from nbc news.com, confusion clouds harris immigration rule. where was kamala harris last week? let's take a look, monday in oakland, california, american jobs plan. tuesday, chicago, she toured a vaccination site. wednesday, white house for a biden speech about jobs. friday, attends an economic briefing in the oval office, so i don't know what she's doing. i mean, maybe she's rah reading a lot about it, maybe she's talking to people behind the scenes. but to be honest with you,
that's fine, and maybe she needs to get to that and get to the root cause, and that's all okay, but she also needs to be present. she is the vice president of the united states, she carries a powerful voice whether you agree with her on issues or not. she needs to get down there, make it a priority. i don't care what aspect of this issue she is tackling, pete, she needs to be present, aware and looking with her own eyes and seeing the severity of these conditions and properly labeling it the humanitarian crisis it is at this point. pete: i don't know if you saw is it, i answered your question. she's doing nothing. she literally -- she doesn't want to -- this is a problem she cannot solve, they don't want to solve. they continue put the policies in place to solve it. the left wants open borders, she's beholden to them, she hopes to be president. why would she want to actually embrace this issue? she doesn't so she won't. and ultimately, that's when you get to the cynical place of you build more facilities, you don't control the border.
they see those as futcher dreamers -- future dreamers, and pretty soon you've got a pathway to amnesty and here we go again because you never turned off the water in the bath. will: for those listening on radio -- [laughter] pete held up a manila fouledder with the world -- folder with the word nothing written on it. there are reports she's talking to people behind the scenes. her priorities seem to be elsewhere. and jedediah also talks to ann wagner a little bit earlier about what's happening at the border. >> the president has turned over our borders to the cartels, and the vice president would just go there, i know that she will say the same thing that we are saying today because no one can deny that this is a crisis. >> quite frankly, the president and vice president could stop it right now by just reversing the executive orders that they put in place on january 20th that have led to this surge.
>> they're completely ignoring the entire humanitarian and national security crisis. we're seeing covid and disease coming, and we're also seeing long-term costs. this is a crisis that was created by joe biden, sustained by kamala harris, and they can stop it if they would just reinstate the trump policies that worked. will: we move from one absurdity to another. the cover of the new york post, and pete has, again, a visual aid for you this morning, reads the following, marching for manchin. one with of the founders of the black lives matter movement, she has spent roughly $3.2 million on real estate over the last several years in the united states alone and some in the caribbean as well. the latest is a $1.4 million mansion in topanga canyon. this is a quote from the head of the black lives matter greater new york city: if you go around
calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes. it's really sad because it makes people doubt the movement and overlooks the fact that it's the people that carry this movement. pete, i can't remember the figures on how much money blm has raised, but we knows it is necessary to point out once more "the new york post", first word there is marxist. marxist blm founder. pete: yeah, she's doing well for a marxist. not giving much away, i believe the number is north of $90 million that black lives matter, the organization, has brought in. and as one of the founders, she seems to be doing just fine. that activist from new york is calling for an independent investigation. because not only where's the money going as far as personal capacity, but we've had many guests on this program who have pointed out where's the money black lives matter is using to improve the lives of black people whether schools or their livelihoods, families or communities. whatever it is, where is it? where's the investment?
it appears to be going to mansions in georgia, south l.a., topanga canyon. jedediah: and there are a lot of really good people around the country that can't afford to buy mansions like that but put money aside to give to black lives matter because they believe in the cause. pete: so true. jedediah: so they're entitled to ask those questions and to know where their hard-earned money is going particularly in light of some of those standpoints we just disclosed. will: all right. a few additional headlines this morning. right now a hawaiian hotel is on lockdown after an armed man has barricaded himself in a room and fired multiple shots through the door. roughly 100 guests are hiding in the hotel's ballroom. no injuries reported at this time. prince charles paid tribute to his late father, prince philip. >> my dear papa was a very special person who, i think above all else, would have been amazed by the reaction and the

[laughter] pete: how dare you go to the dangerous state of florida. will: meanwhile, my son has covid. take a look at this, a pair of thieves snatching a necklace off a woman's neck. i was astounded by this video, the brazen robbery happening on a new york city street in broad daylight, police are searching for the drive-by robbers and are offering a $2500 reward for information leading to their arrest. the woman suffered only minor injuries. i just want to know is that video because this city is so surveilled? pete: unless it's a dash cam, because that's the middle of the street, and as rick reichmuth pointed out -- will: he's going the wrong way. pete: i think it's probably the case of a criminal filming another criminal. will: could be that. pete: you know that happens. wow. all right. we've solved it. still ahead, president biden takes a step toward potentially packing the court, but according

basically normalizes the weaponization of one of our most sacred and revered is institutions. and remember, fdr tried this in 1937. he had an overwhelming democratic majority at that time. they rubber stamped anything that he needed, and each they rejected the effort to expand the court at that time by six justices. now it's 2021, and i'm pretty sure nancy pelosi and chuck schumer would be more than happy to accommodate this. this is why, pete, that the new york times has not endorsed a republican presidential candidate in 65 years. that's a prettying long time. of think about if the roles were reversed and donald trump inherited a 6-3 or 5-4 majority, however you view john roberts, in the liberals' direction. do you think if he created a, quote, study to expand the supreme court in an effort to balance the liberal majority created by barack obama, do you think "the new york times" would phrase it that way? pete: it would be a constitutional crises of epic
proportions. instead he's created this reform commission which, as you said, is a fixed fight. actually pack the commission before they try the pack the court. here's how "the new york times" describes this commission. they say the panel of scholars, lawyers, political scientists and former judges will produce a research -- just research -- designed to be an authoritative analysis of the issue. the goal, the people said -- if they say it, it must be true -- is not to settle on an answer, but to provide mr. biden, congress and the members of the public the risks and benefits of making mere changes to the court. in every sentence there there's a level of twisting that only "the new york times" can live up to. >> yeah. and let's report the facts here, pete, shall we? the cochairs of this commission, one is christinaed rodriguez. she was in the obama justice department. another cochair is bob bauer, part of obama's white house council. that's the obama/biden administration, by the way. also has laurence tribe in
there, he's on msnbc a lot yelling about donald trump and how he has the physical and mental resemblance to hitler. so, yeah, i think this is the wwe of commissions. we know how they're going to rule in the situation. it's all window depression, just to put that out there. -- dressing. 58% oppose packing the court, ironically, that's a new york times/sienna college poll. even stephen breyer or the late justice ginsburg have all talked about how this is a very dangerous thing to do, but joe biden -- just like he did with the filibuster and executive orders and now the candidate that said he to opposed those things now completely supports it. i hope those guys meet each other sometime, president biden and candidate biden. i've got to go buy some bigger pants. you keep sending me brisket, and there's nowhere to put it at
this point. pete: that's how you manage a crisis, joe. thank you very much. appreciate your time. >> all right, man. pete: all right. coming up, with migrants lining up to get into the u.s., smugglers, of course, are taking advantage with big tech as their accomplice. how dangerous cartels are using tiktok to connect with desperate migrants.

morning. we talk about marketing and advertising, how migrants are being solicited to make their way -- we heard about word of mouth and you tend to think in traditional terms of advertising. tell me about the use of social media. >> you know, roughly 20 years ago as u.s. attorney we started to see that the cartels and those that traffic -- and make no mistake, the cartels don't just deal in drugs. they deal in human beings. and we started the first ever task force, human trafficking task force in order to address the problem. and guess how they were getting their victims, you know, 20 years ago? they were using online presence and ads, craig's list, things of that nature to try and lure young people. they'd get, they get their hooks into 'em, and they utilize media, and it is not surprising that they're sophisticated. they know where young people are right now, and it's watching tiktok. will: forgive me for the ignorance, but asking questions is all about learning things you didn't know before. to when we think about these
migrants leaving a very, very difficult, in some cases devastating life behind to make their way to the united states of america, you think in terms of poverty. but am i to understand there are cell phones in every pocket, there's advanced smartphones, there's apps? so, in other words, everyone has tiktok at their ready access and is seeing ads sent to them by the cartels and others to migrate to the united states? >> yeah, i mean, they have phones. they have ability to communicate. many of these folks get lured into, the tiktok is not surprisingly the cartel will use what's available to them. it's shocking, you know, we know that there's still poverty, but the phone is critical, and young people gravitate, they figure out a way to get, you know, the most up the date technology, and they utilize it. will: right. and so just really quickly, again on the technical and the formatic role of the cartel here
and literally placing ads on to tiktok, placing messages and then connecting migrants with, as i understand it, businesses in the united states as well like attorneys who can help them in the migration process. it's become this entire conduit to make the migration process seamless. >> yeah. and not only that -- and you're exactly 100% correct there, they have a network. it's troubling though because once they're here, it's not that they just immediately go on. they stay connected. they owe them something now. that's why you see the human trafficking, the sex trafficking. that's why you see individuals that are afraid when they get here, because they have somebody they have to look over their shoulder for and be aware of. will: right. >> and that's what happens when you have a weak administration. they know exactly what biden and harris are doing or not doing right now, and they're capitalizing on it. will: you know, it all makes so much sense. we tend to think of migration in those gritty, simplistic terms, and that still exists.
people riding the train up north, but the entire thing has been advanced technologically and professionally with the cartels as we've talked about handing out the bracelet, moving tiktok, the entire thing has moved into the 21st century. all right, brett, thank you so much for telling us about it this morning. >> thank you. will: coming up, if it ain't broke? well, joe biden will break it. a new op-ed calling out president biden over his decision making. kayleigh mcenany reacts live next. only pay for what i need.

♪♪ pete: well, from raising taxes to considering expanding the court and creating a crisis at the border, president biden has wasted no time working to undo any successes, all successes by the trump administration. and a new york post op-ed predicts this is just the beginning. arguing, quote: if it ain't broke, joe biden will break it. jedediah: here to react is former white house press secretary and cohost of "outnumbered," kayleigh mcenany. welcome and congratulations on that new position. >> thank you. jedediah: you know, this is the thing, there's an understanding that when a new administration comes in, obviously, there's going to be some changes made, obviously, some rejection of former policies. the problem with me, for me with this is that there were some policies under the trump administration, particularly some related to the border, that were just working. and it seems like there is just a commitment to just undo regardless of whether these
policies were actually effective or not. what's your take on what you see happening across the board? >> yeah, that's exactly right particularly on immigration as you noted, look, former acting secretary of homeland security chad wolf has said we warped the obama -- excuse me, president biden's administration that if they rolled back these policies, they'd see this crisis on the border. and now you even have a tacit admission that the biden administration is acknowledging this because the new homeland security, mayorkas, has reportedly told folks at i.c.e. that he might need to resume construction of the border wall. well see if that happens, but it's almost a tacit admission that it was working under trump, they realize it, and at least in hushed whispers around dhs they're saying, hey, maybe we need to go back to some of those policies. will: i don't know that these two motivations are mutually exclusive, but when you look at the agenda over the first 75
days of the biden administration, do you see one driven by far less ideologies or more shallowly driven by simply undoing what president trump did? in other words, if president trump was for it, we are against it. i think for many, by the way, in georgia, that's what it was about. president trump, ultimately, was what motivated people to feel one way or9 another about the georgia law. not really ideology in the end. it's been so shallow are. everything for four years, it's always been about president trump. is it still? >> i think it is, yes, but i do -- and i agree they're not mutually exclusive. but i do think there is this far-left radicalism that has takennen over the biden administration,9 i mean, just look at the policies. packing the court, assault weapons ban, the immigration plan that he put forward was a marked change from the obama administration era plan which worked with the gang of eight, that worked with republicans. at least it add had the border security measures in there. biden hasn't done that.
and i said when the reporting came out that he was talking to obama, i said i think he's putting far more calls into aoc, and it came out days later, in fact, the chief of staff had talked to aoc. an article today saying aoc and her 95 progressive members are finding a way not to buck the party, but to work through it. biden's a puppet whose strings are bull being pulled -- being pulled, and that's frightening. pete: there was no doubt who was running the show, donald trump was running the show and setting the prerogatives. it's hard to look inside the biden white house and get your arms around who's running the show. basically, what you can see, who's guiding the resultedder inside that white house? the rudder? >> it is a fascinating question because, pete, we were told by biden, i'm a moderate uniter. and, remember, this press, "the washington post," new york times and others went to great pains
to say this guy is the great moderate. he's not a leftist, he's middle of the road. well, he comes in, and everything coming out of the administration is anything but moderate. so you're left to believe either, one, biden is totally coherent and he was just lying to us for months and months and month, or he's not running the show, it's kamala, the far left, and he's just sitting there in the oval letting the radicals lead the way through congress. i wish we had more of an answer, but this is the least transparent administration. we never get press conferences, and when we do, the one we got was middled and incoherent. jedediah: kayleigh, unfortunately, there's the theme of being absent. joe biden was largely absent on the campaign trail, and now you're seeing vice president kamala harris absent at the border. it's really unthinkable, but thank you for being with us, and everyone who doesn't know, you can catch kayleigh weekdays 12 p.m. eastern time on
