moving all-star game from atlanta. then the list of states attorneys generals challenging biden's agenda. arizona attorney general mark brnovich is here on his fight on hr1, the border wall and gun control. all here right now on sunday morning futures. ♪ ♪ maria: first up this morning president biden's unprecedented power grab as new lies surface about the infamous laptop purportedly belonging to his embattled son hunter biden. in a series of interviews, hunter rebound the narrative that the laptop can be part of russian disinformation campaign insisting that he's done nothing wrong and claimed that the office of national intelligence
reached the same can go, -- conclusion, fortunately the former director of national intelligence john ratcliffe is here once again, once again to set the record straight. good morning to you john ratcliffe, thanks for being with us. john: good morning, maria, great to be with you. maria: it was pretty extraordinary that after you came out and told us the truth about this laptop not being part of any russian disinformation, 15 intelligence officials signed their name to a note it was russia disinformation. so much that actually joe biden used that as part of the campaign and he discussed it in the primary during the election. watch joe biden before the election. here he is. >> there are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he's accusing me of is a russian plan. they have said that this has all
-- 5, former heads of the cia's, both parties say what he's saying is a bunch of garbage. nobody believes except his and his good friend rudy giuliani. >> you mean the laptop is now another russia, russia hoax? >> that's exactly -- >> the -- russia -- maria: how do officials say such a thing when you came here you told us the truth? john: it's not about being right but truthful. that's why i came out at that time after adam schiff came out with narrative of this being russian information when there was no intelligence to support that. to your point to have 50 former
obama-clinton-biden national security officials come out after the director of national intelligence says that this is not true and promote a false narrative to protect joe biden and try and influence the outcome of the election, that is the definition of politicizing intelligence and people ask me all of the time about election interference and election influence and we need to be concerned about russia, china and iran but there's no greater expression on that than what you saw there, a completely false narrative, the intelligence community knew that this was not russian disinformation and law enforcement knew that it was hunter biden's laptop. there was an open investigation into that and yet those officials supported by, you know, a corporate media ran a false narrative and misinformed the american people. the problem, maria, is that with the exception of folks like you, very few people out in the media
have accurately reported hunter biden, joe biden and those issues that were important that would have framed the outcome of the election. maria: yeah. and so much information really misinformation being spewed around across the country for political reasons. i mean, we have seen that in georgia with this georgia voting law. they've completely changed the facts and as a result caused real damage to businesses, with mlb, delta airlines, corporate ceo's coming out and following joe biden's lead. it's all misinformation. the same can be said about china. you've got all of the conspiracy theories happening coming from the communist party, the ccp-run global times, xinwan news coming out with crazy ideas of the coronavirus. joe biden has made the coronavirus his number 1 priority and yet he still has
not asked xi jinping about the origins of the coronavirus, john, do you find it odd that we had an entire meeting in alaska with u.s. officials for the first time meeting with ccp, biden officials and the subject doesn't even come up of coronavirus and how this happened? john: right. absolutely. i mean, you know, the world health organization came out with a report and as a director of national intelligence, for the past year i didn't see intelligence product from the best intelligence enterprise in the world that was consistent with what the world health organization said about the likely origins of covid-19. in fact, we put our intelligence out, helped mike pompeo do that through the state department talking about how coronavirus 96.2% identical to covid-19, we are being experimented from the wuhan institute of virology and
have scientists working on that became sick with covid-like symptoms. all of those things are real clear about china's role with respect to a virus that -- that was a direct and proximate cause of half a million american deaths and, you know, the big winner in the 2020 election was joe biden and was also china and the fact that joe biden is not or his diplomats are not addressing this issue directly with china, i think, really reflects that everything that they've said about china, about being tough is just that, it's rhetoric and -- and the policies are really an attempt now to -- to whitewash over this issue because they don't want the political narrative of china being the bad guy. let me be real clear about this, maria, regardless of the origins, whether it was naturally occurring or accident, china lied to the world, once they became aware of the
transmissibility, china lied and suppressed scientists and doctors and journalists and world health organization officials because they didn't want to be blamed for this. and as a result, they are a direct and proximate cause of more than half a million americans who died in the past year and the american people deserve accountability and answers to that and joe biden should be getting those. maria: that is exactly right and the reason that i bring up the hunter biden story and the conspiracy theories that the ccp has been spewing out is because there are real ramification for this. you just said it and i've been saying it as well, china won in the 2020 election. that's in my view who is winning here. we still have not seen a cohesive policy against the bad behavior of the ccp from this administration. we are waiting for that. but if you were to see some of the business deals that joe biden's son hunter had with
chinese companies, there would be real ramifications. what should have happened to hunter biden now that those emails were public that said 10% for the big guy, is there a conflict of interest, does the american people need to understand more, the relationship between the biden family and the chinese communist party? i mean, these have real implications so that's why we bring up the hunter biden story. nobody wants to see anybody's troubles out in full view, but if there are a ramifications for the american people, we need to understand it better. john: well, i agree with you, to your point earlier about his book tour and the things on -- that he doesn't remember over the last 4 years, again, there was an fbi investigation ongoing before the election, it was hunter biden's laptop, the things on those -- on that laptop that the -- that the fbi
and the department of justice have, those are real but now the question is, will joe biden's department of justice exercise exerciseprosecutorial on joe bis son. top secret emails on a private service in basement in chappaqua, new york and gave her a pass, so don't hold your breath. maria: it's the reason that we are forced to raise the question. is this why he's not bringing up the coronavirus? is there so many conflicts of interest that he doesn't want xi jinping to be the bad guy because that would mean that donald trump may not be the bad guy. can't make xi jinping the bad guy. look, we heard from the former cdc director that the coronavirus likely came from the
wuhan lab and for months we have been hearing the media tell us, listen to everything the cdc says, the cdc said wear a mask, no, the cdc said to wear two masks and the cdc said said don't go out but as soon as the former director of the cdc said the virus came from the lab, maybe we won't listen to the cdc. john: it's not just the opinion of the intelligence community about things that happened that we know happen, but the cdc, you know, the giver of freedoms, the oracle of wisdom, the nower of everything when it relates to covid-19 and when its director comes out and says, look, i think the most likely origin of this was the institute of virology, we hear crickets. it's not a political narrative for this administration. the folks who have gotten soft on china and the folks that have gotten rich on china and want to continue to do business.
half a million americans died from covid-19 than died from all of world war i and world war ii. so, you know, again, we deserve answers to that. this administration should be probing those issues but, again, they seem to be going the opposite direction. maria: all right, real quick, john, before we go, i have to get the breaking news out and the breaking news is policy institute that you will be part of. america first policy institute. you'll be officially announcing this on tuesday of this week and i know that you are going to be focused on national security. what can you tell us about that and is there anything that you want to say about the iran deal which appears that joe biden would like to get the united states back into, meanwhile there was talks this past week, china, russia meeting to talk about the iran deal. the united states wasn't even invited. john: well, maria, you know, the america fist policy institute really reflects what i told people before the pandemic last
year. politicians talk about peace and prosperity all of the time. we were living it. a roaring economy, record low unemployment for everyone, blacks, hispanics, women, domestic successes like criminal justice reform, border security, no immigration crisis, foreign policy successes, the decimation of isis and al-qaeda and iran making them less influential and bringing peace to the middle east. those were america first policies. they all worked. what i didn't really expect, maria, was that in 3 short months we would be able to draw such a contrast between america first policies and biden administration policies. look at the america first policies on border security and immigration and the dumpster fire of the biden administration policies and what's happening at our southern border. you mentioned iran, you know, iran weaker, poorer and less influential and as a result the
biden policy they want to go back to an iranian nuclear deal where iran was able to create mayhem. so you will see a lot of familiar faces from the trump administration involved in the america first policy institute and it's about american greatness for the next 40 -- next 400 years. maria: thank you, john. john ratcliffe. we will be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪ you know it's silly six-foot five, three hundred pounds i ride motorcycles on the weekends. so the thought of getting a hearing aid, i was.. i was scared. with lively,

>> president biden, stacey abrams, you know, all these other, you know, ceo's of these companies that are in new york and new jersey and former ceo's that are pressuring people like delta and major league baseball, coca-cola and others, they should be truthful with people. they should look at their own damn laws in their own states. they are more restricted than ours are. this is so condescending. look, this is all power play, maria. look at the long game that democrats and joe biden that are playing, this is all about hr1 and sr1.
they want a federal takeover of elections in our country. maria: that was georgia governor brian kemp with me on mornings with maria on fox business earlier this week on politicians and corporate america over state's new election laws which he says actually makes it easier to vote. few people understand impact than herschel walker, former nfl legend who has now owned successful companies. herschel joins me now. good morning to you. great to have you this morning. you heard governor kemp. i want to get your take on what's going on in georgia and this law. i've got a wall street journal story here on exactly what's in the georgia voting law and i don't see anything negative. in fact, the one thing that they're complaining about is people having an id to vote? >> well, i totally greet with governor kemp right there because having an idea is basic things you have to have.
my grandfather today would be 117 year's old and he had a driver's license. everyone born in america got a birth certificate. that's an id and i think for people to continue to talk about this id is appalling. statement why are they not helping people get an id and that's basic things to survive, you need to cash a check, you need to get tickets from a ball game and get on an airplane and to do any basic thing in america to do anything you need an id. i agree with governor kemp there. i think it's a shame and i also challenge these corporations, these ceo's, guys, why don't we help the people to get an id, those that don't have an id. i think that's what we want to do instead of sitting and talking about it. we were talking about id's months ago and why don't we help people get an id right now? maria: you made a great point
and we talked on the phone, herschel, one of the reasons that the democrats want to muddy up russia and the republicans, you have a pretty big election coming up next year. >> you do. in 2022 you have a big election coming up. you have a senate race. things going on they can be -- they can change america. so right now they want to mud everything up. i know we will talk about it later with baseball moving out, wait a minute. what are you doing? you are mudding it up. atlanta is a great city but also the city in a year that can be -- can help put this country back in order and i think that's one thing that they are trying to do right now is muddy it up and talk about id's when yet the ceo's know good and well that they are doing anything, to get a meeting in their offices, you need an id to do that. maria: exactly. i want to take a short break.
maria: i am back with football legend herschel walker, herschel, before we went to the break we were talking about major league baseball moving the all-star game out of atlanta because of a voting rule, voting law in georgia which actually was pretty tame and did not restrict voting at all. did rob manfdred, did mlb read
the law? >> nobody says anything to them. by them moving it out, it's funny, because i don't think anyone read it. atlanta is a city that's more open than denver and you look at how it's going to hurt a lot of african-americans. they are going to hurt a lot of brown people there and hurt a lot of small businesses and they're moving out. they are moving to the a city that's predominantly black when you leave a city that's predominantly black. i'm confused. they never read the law. we have the hold the ceo's accountable for what they do. nobody seems to want to do that and i said, i will. i challenge them, guys, let's quit just going along with whatever someone said and make yourself think you've done your little duties for the day, that's what's sad. maria: candace owens was with me a couple of weeks ago on the program and she was really unnerved by the democrats now using the black and brown
community as weapons saying that the hr1 is a civil rights bill. here is candace owens on this program a few weeks ago. candace: i'm so tired of black americans, hispanic americans being used to further the democrat -- democrat power and everything that the democrats want to do and we have seen this time and time again and it's always a game of linguistics. they tell you it's going to help you. it's to combat vote -- suppression. votes are not being suppressed. this is what the left always says. when i hear them saying they are trying to combat voter suppression, i almost know, i always know that what they're actually after is suppressing votes themselves and making sure that they stay in power. maria: herschel, your reaction? >> she's 100% correct. do you hear about them trying to empower anyone or using
suppression as a reason to do certain things? well, you know, if you're doing that, why are you not helping people get an id? why are you not talking about school choice? why are you not putting kids in the same school? why are you not doing those things? all we have been doing is talk about it and not doing anything. using color. they always talk about jim crow. everybody want to mention jim crow because what they do now is they get you quiet. they don't want people to say anything because when you mention jim crow that means that you're racist. they don't want you to speak i'm saying no, no, speak out. we get america back because this administration is supposed to be healing the country, remember, they seem to be dividing it. maria: yeah, herschel. i would love to see corporate ceo's come out where you are and actually speak some truth here. look, i really find it
incredibly hypocritical that these companies and the mlb can attack georgia and yet feel perfectly fine to do business in china where xi jinping has a million, you know, ethnic minorities in camps right now, human rights abuses, intellectual property theft, bullying its neighbors. now we have beijing olympics next year and you were actually on the u.s. olympic team and went with team usa to the olympics back. what do you say about going to the olympics in 2022 in beijing as all of these companies are attacking the united states? >> you know, as i said, you have to hold the companies accountable. one of the best things that ever happened to be is to be in winter olympics in 1992 which is predominantly white and what was fun is when america, all my
brother white brothers and sisters, i've never been more proud of any life to be brothers and sisters in america. we were in france and to see america come in, you know, that was the biggest smile i can ever have. i believe in america, i believe in the constitution and i think it's sad that we have these ceo's that letting the cancel culture destroy who they are. i think that's sad. maria: and some of those people on the olympic teams have attacked the united states which, i mean, why are you on an american -- yeah. >> well, i think you're correct by that. and so why are you representing america when you're attacking the united states of america. i feel that if you're going to be on america, you don't need to be on america's team. how do i know that you're going to fight hard for america when you say america is the worst place in the world to be. maria: all right, herschel, we
know that former president trump wants you to run for senate. what is the answer? are you considering running for the senate seat in georgia in the 2022 race? >> well, i'm very honored that they would consider me running for the senate and, you know, my family, we are still going through the process of praying and really considering it and at the same time i take it very serious and people want me to decide like right now and i said, guys, i'm going to take my time because this is a very serious, serious thing. but i will tell you this, herschel walker believes in this god, i believe in the country and i believe in the people and i will fight for the people of georgia if i run. so yourself stay tune and i will tell you what, it's going to be exciting. maria: if you were to run, what would be your priorities? >> my priority would be america. getting people to be -- getting people to find out the truth so they can be educated and quit
dividing. i want to bring people altogether. there's no doubt, they said herschel, did you really mean that, guys, i believe in -- i believe in togetherness. i believe in america. maria: okay. >> i believe in the constitution that is something special. maria: and you made the point to me you can't change things overnight. herschel walker, it's great to see you this morning. thanks very much for being here. herschel walker joining us there. stay with us, jim jordan on the other side of this break.
♪ ♪ ♪ maria: welcome back. now danger at the u.s. border as we've told you previously one-third of migrant women and children have reported sexual abuse on their dangerous track to america. now according to texas governor greg abbott, these individuals are still not safe in u.s. custody. earlier this week he launched full investigation into allegations of abuse including sexual assault in san antonio. it can be happening elsewhere but child protective services hat nonbe allowed to check. barrasso with me on the public health crisis he witnessed in donna, texas. >> i watched them be tested for coronavirus. they had them in a courtyard. all of these young people, they are only allowed to be there for 3 days by law, you wouldn't want your kids to be there for 3 minutes but many are staying there up to ten days and being
tested the day that they leave and put them in the courtyard and do the instant test and then those that have been tested positive have move today one side of the courtroom and those negative to the courtyard but i will tell you, maria, they've all been exposed and then they are sent all across the country. maria: ohio congressman jim jordan and other six other house members visited the same facility earlier this week. congressman jordan joins me now with his findings, great to see you this morning. the senators were able to take some pictures but then they were told to delete the pictures. your group was barred, period, from taking any pictures, right? when your team asked written permission to filmed, they were told by biden's handlers it's a moot point. jim: the press wasn't allowed in. even when secretary mayorkas
went the press weren't allowed in. the reason that the press aren't allowed in is because they don't want the american people to know what's going on. the senator was right, the conditions are not appropriate at all. one pod that we look at in the donna facility, there were supposed to be 33 kids in the area, there were 527. that's what the conditions are like and the other thing and i think this is key. if the press were allowed in, the border patrol agents would tell them exactly what they told us namely that the reason for this is because of the policy that joe biden has now adopted which is we are not going the keep people in mexico for policy president trump had. we are not going the keep people in mexico while we evaluate if they can come to the country. that's driving the huge volume. the huge volume is driving the terrible conditions and harm that has been done to kids as governor abbott talked about. maria: yeah, we are showing
video and pictures that you were able to capture. we are showing them while you're speaking. the biden administration is spending $60 million a week to shelter minors, congressman, i think it's extraordinary that the administration rather than trying to stop the flow, they are actually expanding the capacity in this country to hold them but nothing to do to stop the flow of migrants coming. they overturned trump policies, changed, i mean, you know, remain in mexico, stop construction of the wall, catch and release. unless they go back to those policies, it's hard to believe that this stops. jim: it almost makes you reach the conclusion that this is what they want. you're exactly right. the remain in mexico policy they undid. they announced to the world that we will not finish the wall and not deport anyone. when you did that, everyone start coming. 16,000 kids are being housed
right now. they expect that number to go from 16,000 to 60,000. the hundreds of thousands of children coming in and moving across the country at cost of $60 million a week right now. of course, the cost will go higher. why don't they use the money to complete the wall, finish the wall. that would be better, 40% of border patrol agents time have been processing the folks versus patrolling the border as we expect as american taxpayer. this is a huge, this is a huge problem and something that just frankly has to change but the only way it can change to get to some kind of control of the border is to go back to president trump's policies and something that the biden administration is willing to do. i wish they would, though. maria: it's extraordinary how much misinformation they are spewing out as well. nancy pelosi continues to blame the trump administration as extraordinary as that sounds.
here she is this past week, watch this. >> the fact is that we are on a good path at the border under leadership of joe biden -- president biden. it's about 3 things. it's about restructuring how we do what is happening there because we are in a very bad situation under the trump administration. maria: i mean, we have seen the numbers congressman. jim: she needs to go herself and talk to border patrol agents because they would tell her that we are on anything than a good path. in fact, this is so overwhelming, such chaos on the border that 3 days into the biden administration, they set up a special facility to process families faster and now when families -- we saw these families. when we were out at night, we saw them walking, coming out of the brush, walking into this facility. they know where to go. the facility in texas where they process them in 8 hours, they are put on buses and put on
planes and sent north in the united states. for her to say that it's absolutely 100% wrong, not consistent with the facts, not consistent with what every single border agent told us and these border agents, by the way, maria, they are busting their tail trying to do their work as best they can under extreme circumstances, under chaos and crisis at the border. they're doing a great job but it's just overwhelming right now because of the policies unfortunately that the biden administration has adopted. maria: congressman, this is just one policy out of an incredibly radical agenda. i have to get your take on everything else. he has an infrastructure plan that he's calling -- infrastructure plan but more green new deal, what about the commission to study packing the supreme court, you have more spending, $4 trillion in taxes are coming and perhaps the potential of a change in the supreme court, congressman. jim: yeah, i mean, what do we
need a commission for? where we know where they are at. they are trying to pack the courts and i guess they are going to put together a commission but we already know where democrats want to go. it's all about political power. think in the last six weeks, democrats in the house, thank goodness in the filibuster. they would pass legislation that would radically change police law. they passed legislation that would radically change police law and 3 weeks ago they passed legislation that would radically change immigration law at the same time there's a crisis on our southern border. they passed two bills that would give amnesty between 2 and 3 million illegal immigrants. this is all political power and radical policies that are coming from the democrats. we better hope that senator manchin and senator sinema keep their word and we don't get filibuster change because if we do, all of this will become law. maria: the reasons that the ag's
are suing the administration. congressman, many hope that you can do something about it. congressman, great to see you this morning. thank you, sir. jim jordan joining us in ohio. coming up arizona attorney general mark brnovich on why he invited hhs chief xavier becerra to the border. back in a minute. ♪ ♪ ♪ satisfaction guarantee. accountability, i like it. so, yeah. andy and i made a good plan. find your own andy at schwab. a modern approach to wealth management.

ag ken paxton are suing over open borders. my next guest taking issue with hr voting bill and biden's new executive orders on gun control. arizona attorney general mark brnovich joins me now. ag, good morning to you. thanks very much for joining us. >> thank you. maria: what can you do to stop the radical agenda? mark: well, i am doing everything i can using every tool in our tool box in order to stop it and so we literally have filed lawsuits, two lawsuits related to immigration and border tours for vice president and secretary becerra and lawsuits as you indicated the keystone pipeline and against secretary yellen and the ability of states to cut taxes, so there's a slew and plethora of lawsuits that have been filed and me and my colleagues are
working now on comments to the proposed rules that the biden administration is making on guns. maria: so, so the gun executive orders and the gun commentary is just the latest on what many ag's are saying is just breaking the law. president biden came in and just blew off law that was debated and put into process by congress. now you've invited xavier becerra to the border, what are you trying to accomplish? mark: well, i think it's important for federal officials to actually come to the states to hear and feel what's happening on the ground. don't believe my words. those are similar words that kamala harris said when she was running about the need to get out and so i -- i'm encouraging whether it's the vice president or secretary becerra to come here and talk to border patrol agents and find out what's going on. your press guest noted that when you talk to agents as we have, they will tell you this is the worst they've seen in two decades, talk to local sheriffs
and they will tell you how the system is being overwhelmed and how the cartels are using crisis in order to smuggle drugs into the country and make money believable profits which we will pay for for generations and so the biden administration has a fundamental misunderstanding of what the role of the federal government is. whether it's the new rules regarding to cut taxes or stop pipelines or increasing by decriminalizing or incentivizing immigration, they are radically changing the country and they know that when people become dependent on the federal government that they can control it. maria: yeah. i think it makes really important points and we have pictures to show what we've seen to be drugs on the floor. we will take a short break. when we come back, i want to ask more about what you are doing and whether or not you can be successful in stopping the tax increases, hr1, we are talking with the ag of arizona and we
maria: welcome back, and i'm back with arizona attorney general mark brnovich. mark, i'd love to understand better our audience needs to understand better the process with which the ag's are moving forward and -- and how you can be successful in stopping this radical agenda. you just mentioned drugs at the border. final questions on this issue because we know the head of the border is now resigning, roberta jackson. roberta jacobson rather resign from the crisis that she initially denied. the pictures from representative jim jordan show what we think are drugs on the floor, meth and cocaine and plastic bags on the floor at the border.
how do you feel that the lawsuits can actually move forward and what is the process for you to stop this agenda? >> so, for example, two of our lawsuit that is we are leading on one is we want the biden administration to reinstitute deportations because they have i cent vised and decriminalized and we have sued the administration over rescinding and the biden administration are nearly giving medical benefits and other benefits that are public tax dollars that people that broke the law in the country and regardless of what you think of the issue, it's fundamentally unfair that someone that came in here that broke the law to get all of the government benefits. my goodness, maria, we have homeless vets in this country yet the biden administration wants to spends hundreds of dollars per migrant family to
house them. maria: unbelievable. mark: border has to take them, arrest them and then process them and while they're doing that the drug cartels are literally driving trucks across the border with drugs, so this is not just in arizona. it's going to affect the entire country for generations to come. maria: and real quick before we go, talk to us about taxes because you are also suing over 1.9 trillion stimulus package which says if you get any money, you can't cut taxes? >> it's absolutely ridiculous. think about this, maria, we beg the federal government for $1,400 stimulus checks, that's our hard-earned dollars and the state can't cut taxes by a similar amount? why is that? this is about the centralization of power in washington, d.c. we will do everything that we can on our side to fight it to make sure that we respect
>> it started out as a baseball brawl and is now a full-blown media slug fest over base business voting rights and the republican party. the pundits with standing ovation after president biden back booting the all-star game i should say from at will nota to punish georgia from what he says an awful voting law prompting donald trump urging fans to boycott baseball. what is actually moving accomplish other than hurting small businesses and biden admits that's a problem. if the all-star can't play there and what about augusta, a reporter asked biden the very question. >> i think that's up
