>> it is happening in daylight, criminals usually operate at night but they are emboldened because they know they will not get prosecuted. i will put to rest a lie. democrats claim they care about people of color. the police chief, a black police chief begging a minority city to please don't cut the funding because he wants to protect people of color and they cut it anyway so what does that tell you about the democrats? they don't care about people. they care about power. they will allow cities to burn and even if you've got people of color running the city they don't care and that is what is insulting about all this. no one can defend the defunding the police. heather: fox news poll shows overwhelming majority of americans, 72% say they trust the police. carley: new overnight all us troops have withdrawn from bagram airfield in afghanistan.

todd: critical race theory strikes fear around the nation some question the potential threat on the future of the fourth of july. here with his take is jeremy hunt, great to see you. let me read a little bit of this piece from the late milliliter, critical race theory discusses the title. it is a wonderful time of year to muse on the freedoms, opportunities and blessings of the wonderful country we live in. however a great threat to those attributes now hovers over our nation and literally imperils all that our ancestors fought
for. critical race theory is prevalent throughout high academic institutions and federal government and its agencies. how do you view the threat the author mentions? >> it seems like it is already starting to happen. i remember just last year my little sister-in-law, only a high school, was about to post on social media something celebrating the fourth of july but she hesitated. why did you hesitate? because my friends will make fun of me if i post something a little bit too patriotic, too celebratory. that saddens me. that is where we are right now. high school students afraid to post anything celebratory. last night one of my friends tweeted, just know i am judging every black person i see in red, white and blue this weekend. it is amazing we are losing any sense of what it means to be an american.
what happens to a country that continues to go in that direction? i don't know. i do know patriots that love their country stand up and boldly celebrate the fourth of july. todd: why can't we all be for equality and at the same time be for america? i don't get that. >> that is what it means to be an american, to be for equality, to push to live up to our creed. that is why we celebrate the fourth of july. it helps us to evaluate are we living up to things? that is so important. that is why we have a country. we have to continue to be committed to celebrating the fourth of july. todd: the air force, creating walking instead of running tests allow easier push-ups.
we will pop up the new traditional test versus the new tests on the screen and you see the comparison. make your. is or joke at the expense of another branch but then answer me seriously, should i be freaked out that we are lowering the standards of our fighting forces so much as you see in this graphic? >> this is pretty on brand, those in the u.s. army but in all seriousness this is something, the research, hope it is not something top-down from the biden administration as we've seen in recent months but i guess we will wait and see. todd: you are allowed to attack the air force. i will say thank you to all branches of the military on this fine fourth of july weekend. the overall point is true. you've got to fight and doing todd piro push-ups is not the way -- jeremy hunt push-ups is the way to go. a great weekend. see you soon.

the benefits may still be keeping many on the sidelines. that could give us a less than expected number which would be negative for the biden administration. we expect president biden at some point at the white house today to comment about the job numbers. we will see what he has to say. we will have them number on 8:30 eastern. carley: krispy kreme. >> reporter: hitting the market again, the second go around being public. they opened at 1630 a share. stock, 20% trading yesterday. although the debut was not what the company was hoping for, why do i say this? who doesn't love a donut? there is concern they are too focused on sugary snacks in a world where many americans have become more health conscious. let me point you to other vegan

weather forecast. your map looks innocuous but that video we just showed, bad news. carley: we have this frontal boundary that will linger across the northeast and mid-atlantic, that was the catalyst for severe storms. we knew there was a designated area for large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes over the mid-atlantic and the national weather service will assess the damage that you see the past 24 hours across the ohio valley to the northeast so we will see a rainy day today and into tomorrow and hopefully things will clear up for the better half of the long weekend. we will keep you up-to-date on that. tropical storm elsa 60 miles per hour sustained winds. we could potentially be dealing with our first hurricane of the season. we will have to monitor it as it comes close to hispaniola and over cuba. was it goes overland it has a better chance of disrupting the storm. we are hopeful for that though we don't want the system to impact anyone.
then we have to watch florida, south florida, west coast of florida, the eastern gulf of mexico because we could have impact tuesday and wednesday. here are the tropical models. i must tell you the euro model doesn't love this storm much, doesn't make it hurricane, disintegrates it but we have to watch because the gfs does make it into a hurricane and we have to watch florida and the gulf coast over the next few days. forecast rainfall if the storm does impact the southeast of florida we will see a lot of rain next week. early-season, this is the earliest fifth named storm and we are expecting a busy tropical season. carley: this is the storm that could affect the condo collapsed. carley: if it comes to florida, miami, it will hamper a lot of rescue efforts and relief efforts and cause damage. jillian: bad timing. thank you so much, appreciate it.

>> we have to have the advancement act. advocates like myself and other organizations are enforcing this issue. jillian: carley: will beef's be a repeat of the attacks on georgia's voting law? here to react is joey jones. you heard the reaction to the supreme court decision a polling arizona's voting law, people calling in a civil rights violation. what say you? >> if you know anything about the georgia voting unit the majority of things they were upset about were the changes made to opportunities to vote. they came through emergency power. everything complained about was not institutionalized, things like drop boxes and absentee ballots without any excuse. the georgia voting law was much ado about nothing. we had someone here called stacy
abrams who knew how to craft the narrative and make a big thing about it. will the arizona law be the same? know. there is the mouthpiece, the loudspeaker on the left. the law itself, what the supreme court upheld is not really something you could argue about. you have to have a narrative and someone to control it or don't have much to argue about. todd: someone who is not happy is democratic operative posing as someone who cares about your voting rights, mark eli is said the following. is any big business issued a statement about the supreme court ruling or are they no longer even offering thoughts and prayers for our democracy? we will pop up the companies in the woke april time of our lives when they were like we need voting rights and all that. i look at that and say mark eli us knows he is licked. he lost in the supreme court,
precedent is not on his side anymore so he will resort to shaming companies and try to get the power for blood pressure on his side because when you don't have the facts, what say you? >> it is ironic when you juxtapose this with the citizens united verdict that the corporations have the opportunity to lobby and any to campaign so democrats don't want corporations involved when they put money to republican candidates but they want them involved when they can use them, doesn't make a lot of sense but the objection to these voting laws goes along the same lines and they resent -- justice alito whose objections to dissent was basically that you are not showing the victim in the case, specifically discriminatory towards any group or individual and not even showing people they can't vote with the restrictions of this law, bringing in
hypotheticals saying they didn't even have statistics to argue their case against the arizona voting law, they are not showing the data is what i am saying. if that is the case this is more narrative driven, this is more in the minds and hearts than on paper and at the end of the day our political system needs to argue about anything and everything it can. carley: we are heading into the fourth of july weekend, a patriotic weekend for the country. olympian gwen barry is getting a lot of attention for her national anthem protests. it doesn't represent her or black people in this country and it is becoming quite a trend among a lot of people particularly young people finding it cool to not be patriotic. what is your reaction to this?
>> don't know what lines along which she objects. i heard one interview where she said there's a line in the fog would lose to slavery that she objects to. i believe that is in a verse we don't thing. beyond that, if you know the details of what happened we don't play the anthem every time someone takes the podium in these trials. it plays once a day. they had it scheduled to play and it happened to be it played that day at the time of her event took the podium. in a country where you can throw an inanimate object as far as you want and doing that activity can pay for your college which can take you from generational poverty to generational wealth and we have a flag that stands for that opportunity i guess it also provides the opportunity to make a fool of yourself and as far as i'm concerned that is all she has done. todd: joey lost his life to do what that individual has done. >> that is really irrelevant in my opinion.
i am an american and we all are and we can see that flag represents the best of us, not the worst thing that ever happened to us. i appreciate that but that is not relevant to the conversation in my opinion. this is about common decency. todd: have a great weekend and thank you. carley: charles keating and christopher horton, you need to know some. they gave their lives for our freedom after their break. the parents join us live to help us honor them. todd: let's check with steve doocy with what is coming up on "fox and friends". >> reporter: in 17 minutes, the border crisis is getting worse as undocumented migrants are caught with loaded handguns, ammo, and more from a texas ranch. what could possibly go wrong? we will talk to a texas landowner who is witnessing a crisis on her doorstep. 4-star general jack keane, new

defend the nation, we said you can't drop out of school but when you are done with school, and he did go to college and in that program he was in, he said i am going to do something to help defend the nation and he did. he became an army sniper and he went to serve the country. he was killed in action on september 9th, 2011, in afghanistan. he was laid to rest in arlington national cemetery and that, to us, is a greek sacred hallowed ground that serves as a reminder that freedom is not free and that is the message that comes through to me on this july 4th holiday.
carley: freedom is not free and that is the message on the fourth of july and what we should be remembering as we have fun with our families barbecueing, freedom isn't free as your family pay the ultimate sacrifice. i love to hear about your son charles, he was 31 years old when he died. tell us about him. >> he was a character. he had a great sense of humor but also wanted to do something so hard that no one else could do. decided to become a navy seal. not only does he like fireworks, if you are a seal what you like to blow things up but he enjoys fourth of july. he would be in the parade and in a small town where they love to celebrate the fourth of july, one of his favorite holidays. they would have shows in coronado and they would talk to the kids. it was always good for him. in the back of his mind and he
did it, he loved it and i see the national anthem playing, i think of the sacrifice that he made and really proud of him. of course i miss him and i will our country because he loves our country. >> god loves your family. you product the national and some. a lot of people view the national anthem differently than i am sure everybody you and chris do. what is your reaction to this sort of trend of the anti-patriotism movement in our country? >> i think - carley: i am so sorry. you are cutting out. thank you so much for joining us. i know you have a book about your son charlie, don't be a hero. you can learn more about your
son charles. thank you for your service and sacrifice, a full family effort. thank you so much and happy fourth of july. god bless. we will be right back. and hotdog buns for a chance to win a flavortown-inspired hawaiian getaway. can i get another restock on king's hawaiian bread? again. everything's better between king's hawaiian bread. liberty mutual customizes car insurance so you only pay for what you need. how much money can liberty mutual save you? one! two! three! four! five! 72,807! 72,808... dollars. yep... everything hurts. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ what happens when you make power your thing... above everything?
