♪. pete: that is our nation's anthem on our nation's birthday. happy independence day, america. so glad you're here. honored to be here with rachel and will. rachel: happy independence day. you guys look amazing.
3:02 am
pete: as do you. rachel: we're all in rhett, white and blue. will: happy 4th of july all day long today. happy 4th of july. that was the quantico brass quintet performing the national anthem live on fox square. that is happy independence day to all much us. we'll celebrate all morning long celebrating our nation's birthday. we would love for to you celebrate with us. send your pictures to we'll be outside of the studio having a good time. you're somewhere out in america, barbecuing, hanging out by the pool with your friends and family. shows us where it looks like. rachel: we're in new york. across america in little towns everywhere there will be amazing parades and barbecues. we want to see all of that, definitely, definitely send that stuff in. as we celebrate our great nation today, we share a portion from the declaration of independence. we'll reflect on what those words meant when they were
3:03 am
written. pete: that's right. here we are 245 years later. there is big news. there is plenty of news. there is stuff we'll talk about today. we don't often take a moment to think about the words written 245 years ago by a small segment of men and patriots who felt like they were living under tyranny and wanted something different and it's a miracle what they unfolded for us. so we'll read as a fitting beginning to the show today, the preamble to the declaration of independence. it is worth hearing. rachel: i love that. we'll be the only show that does that i'm sure. pete: guaranty that. listen to they're timeless. we hold these truths to be self-evident that all mean are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among those are life, liberty and "the pursuit of happyness." to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving the just powers from the consent of the
3:04 am
governed, when any form of government becomes destructive of these ends i had is the right for the people to alter or abolish it and institute new government laying such foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them most likely to affect their safety and happiness. when you reflect on the gravity of those words, it was the was cascading of athens, greece, rome, italy, jerusalem, the gathering in the hall of philadelphia they wrote the words to abolish kings, monarchs, we the people can rule ourself. we understand human nature, and corruption, we're not perfect, we know that but we're giving our chance to govern ourselves. it's a pretty cool promise. rachel: so interesting when you read it, we don't read it enough. it is so timeless that could be written today. a lot of people that feel the
3:05 am
same way those men felt right now. as you read those words. will: you know there is a great effort in our country now to define the united states of america, to redefine the united states of america. yesterday, pete, you shared with us john adams words what the celebration, what this holiday should mean, both at the same time solemn and celebratory. that is what this day should be. that right there what you read to us the definition of america. that what we will solemnly at times, celebratory at others thinking about. as you point out, rachel, those truths we heard are timeless and relevant. and in time in human history we gather at at time we can govern ourselves and its base are principles and freedom guide us hopefully into eternity. rachel: that is comes from god, not man. that is the most important aspects of that. we don't put our faith in men. we put our faith in god.
3:06 am
pete: can't legislate them away. no pen and a phone can get rid of them for you. rachel: that's right. pete: john adams and thomas jefferson, you both do, both died 50 years to the day on july 4th on signing the declaration of independence. same day, within five hours. will: two political rivals. pete: two political rivals, exactly. will: as we move on through this day, we'll focus on the news this week, this day and spend time throughout the day to remember what this country and this day is about. we want to give that every bit of attention it deserves. >> today more than ever. i think people feel the words in those statements, they are slipping away. pete: we talked about that yesterday. rachel: i know. pete: we're celebrating but there is this eminent feeling it is all at risk. rachel: it is. pete: that we're still fighting for the spirit. they fought for it literally with their sacred honor and it
3:07 am
is our charge to do that today. rachel: we're not imagining it is slipping away. will: now to some of the news of today. president biden making a campaign style stop in michigan. pete: he toured a cherry farm and cherry-picked his audience to promote the bipartisan infrastructure deal. rachel: david spunt joins us live from the national mall at the white house prepares for tonight's 4th of july celebration. david? reporter: happy independence day to you three. real quick before we get back to the declaration of independence, i'm looking at the building where it is housed, the national archives here in washington, d.c., the special place holding the declaration and constitution. president biden and the first lady dr. jill biden will hold a barbecue on the south lawn to honor 1000 first-responders, essential workers, those really on the front lines of covid-19. it will be a celebration from the virus. a celebration from that but the white house is not going to be meeting its goal of getting at
3:08 am
least 70% of americans with at least one shot of the vaccine. that was the goal of the white house. they're going to be missing it by a few weeks. yesterday president biden as you mentioned visited michigan to taught infrastructure, the bipartisan deal made by congress. he visited a fruit farm. you mentioned cherries and cherry pie. he stopped for some of his favorite ice cream. with a message hopes to continue a bipartisan streak. back at washington on the national mall, he stopped by the famous reflecting pool in front of the lincoln memorial, what it looks like when crews set up fireworks. 6500 fireworks shells are used. to set them up it takes hours and hours of work. to be precise. it is worth it to put on the show and of course those who are watching. >> it will be the largest display in the nation. it will be really impressive. we have so many unique effects. fireworks like snowflakes, tough
3:09 am
to describe. when you see something you haven't seen before then you will be excited. reporter: the national parks service has been putting on the show about 50 years. they do it very well tonight, the fireworks in washington, d.c., will kick off precisely at 9:09 p.m. back to you. rachel: thank you, david. i'm sometimes hard on joe biden. i will give him a pass on the vaccine, the 70% number. i think it is arbitrary. millions of people already had covid. many doctors and scientists think we already reached herd immunity. and he was in michigan with governor whitmer -- pete: lockdown whitmer. rachel: yeah, lock down whitmer. she has a lottery of sorts encouraging people to get the shot and entered into the sweepstakes to win cash prizes. i don't like that, because a lot of people already had covid. many doctors think that is a bad idea to get a shot if you
3:10 am
already had covid. i think we already reached herd immunity. i don't think you have to worry about hitting the arbitrary 70%. pete: even though he hasn't hit the number is it defacto admission -- will: it wasn't truly sign tisk. the willingness to go along with the celebration reveals the farce behind the other enterprise. here is another topic. gwen berry, olympic hammer thrower, finished third at olympic trials compared herself to supreme court justice brett kavanaugh. tweeted this. is that the best they could come up with? i can relate to the associate justice of the supreme court, usa, brett kavanaugh, there is a lot of blank i don't do like i did when i was 18 or 20. i will say this, quickly. this is regarding her tweets that we talked about yesterday on the show. some 10 some odd years ago. she was making offensive jokes,
3:11 am
statements about white people, latino people, asian people. rachel: people with special needs as well. will: the most offensive thing gwen berry has done is turn her back on the national anthem. the most offensive thing she has done turning her back on the podium that the world honors as one of greatest athletes. i have a mixed feeling about digging into everybody's tweets so we can sell them. how about judge gwen berry what she has done in the present which is highly offensive. pete: what she did is why we're talking about her. what she tweeted -- one of two options you say all right we forgive, look what they did to kavanaugh. we're going to forgive people what they said in the past when they were 18. we all said dumb stuff at 18. i go for that. that standard is never equally applied on other side. so i want to give her grace for that but ultimately the reason we're talking about it, is
3:12 am
because of what she did and what she said she may do again at the podium in tokyo, not in tokyo. will: in tokyo. pete: in tokyo, what she may do again in tokyo. that is what matters the most. this idea now we'll compare yourself to justice kavanaugh doesn't really work for me. rachel: judge jeanine pirro was on her show last night. here is what she had to say about gwen berry. >> she is living the american dream and she doesn't have a clue. she is hurting every man and woman whose blood was spilled for that flag including patriotic black men and women who chose to enlist, an chose to fight what you find so repulsive. she is hurting every parent who lost a child, every spouse to lost a loved one. every child growing up without a father and every veteran who can't stand up because he lost his legs. she is hurting america on the international stage where other countries laugh at the
3:13 am
disrespect and downright hatred people like her have for our national anthem and our flag. pete: that's right. love to get a comment from the tuskegee airmen how they feel. rachel: i also agree with you, will. i don't like going back looking at old tweet and doing that. if it takes for her not to get a nike contract, i'm down with that i'm sick and tired people profiting off of disrespecting our country. you look at her. you look at kaepernick. athletes we would not know their names at all except for the fact they disrespected our country. i'm kind of fed up with it. will: i'm kind of fed up with nike. rachel: i won't buy anything from them. will: check in with position nation host abby hornacek celebrating independence day live in kansas city with an airshow in gardner, kansas. good morning, abby. reporter: good morning, guys. you look very patriotic. pete i love the white suit. we have a lot to look forward to

3:19 am
always great to have you. you canned i can sit here spend some time criticizing "the new york times" but i think this is the more important question. is "the new york times" accurately reporting on a mind-set out there in the united states of america that some people now see the united states of america's flag perhaps its anthem as well, as divisive? >> great question, will. no, there are basically reflecting a mind set that goes on in their newsroom which is the woke mob. the woke mob runs "the new york times" at this point. remember just last month we had a writer mara gay, who declared she found it disturbing her words, unquote, there were so many flags she had to witness on lawns and trucks just east of you in long island, disturbing the same "new york times" who asked not too long ago if "the star-spangled banner," and the national anthem, are they racist? those were literally the headlines they had to ask. is the same "new york times" now
3:20 am
defending gwen berry talked about in the previous segment. obviously she turned away from the national anthem, calling the playing of it a set-up, set-up. they she became third in the hammer, and they have been playing the national anthem at the podium ceremonies at the beginning of olympics. we see attack on american icons like george washington and abraham lincoln, the guy who won the revolutionary board, freed the slaves. the san francisco school board voted to remove the names from schools because they deemed these people as divisive. that is how crazy things have become now. will: joe, i will ask you a somewhat similar question in a little bit of a different way. if the united states of america flag is now a partisan issue, if it is now something democrats back themselves away from, that either spells the death knell of the democratic party in my estimation or the country, one or the other. it means we have no more unifying factors, no more unifying symbols.
3:21 am
to be clear what you're telling me, you think newsrooms, in this case "the new york times" are not just out of touch with america, they are out of touch with the democratic party. you do not believe most democrats feel that the national flag is at this point is a divisive symbol? >> i couldn't believe that, in other words the more moderate, more sane democrats can't possibly get behind something like this, defund the police. will: right. >> the far left-wing of the party, aoc, "the squad" wing they believe that, if you're a more moderate democrat, the kind that voted for bill clinton, jimmy carter you don't believe that at all. "new york times" is no longer the paper of record. it is a paper of propaganda. this is exhibit @. will: that takes us back full circle, joseph, criticism appropriately falls on these newsrooms not just out of touch but increasingly radical. that is what the story. reveals. hopefully it doesn't reveal
3:22 am
sentiment out there. happy 4th of july, you joe. >> i have flags, i have at least 400 of these in the backyard. will: nothing divisive about that. happy 4th of july. after covid forced the usa to go a year without visiting servicemembers and families they're back. one of those leading the charge, miss america. she joins us next. ♪.

he said facebook stands for. when i led to counter task force at facebook. he used to arrest radicalization of isis inspired would-be terrorists not americans. we didn't turn tools inward on fellow american citizens participating in the marketplace of ideas. this is beyond the pale. rachel: it is very interesting that you bring up he tried to make a comparison between facebook and china. it seems like facebook has taken, has become more like china rather than facebook setting an example for china. what do you think that we -- let's first talk about, this warning message, it is being used on american citizens. i mean i looked at, what they term as an extremist. i think i could fall under that. >> exactly. and this is sort of a harbinger of a very dangerous trend. it is conflation of conservatives with extremists and that in concert with the
3:47 am
expansion of a digital surveillance state, you saw recently released white house strategy for countering domestic terrorism. this really lays that groundwork for a more expanded domestic surveillance state with social media at its heart. so it is very important for conservatives to be very vigilant when this happens. it us time for us to act. we have to consider using other platforms. we have to build with every layer of the technology stack in mind being mindful what happened to parler around amazon web services, the lights can be turned out at anytime. diversify your platforms, conservatives. make sure you're looking at new digital platforms. it is imperative right now. rachel: you're absolutely right. we got a statement from facebook, they say, this test is part of our larger work to assess ways to provide resources and support to people. people who may have engaged with or exposed to extremist content or know someone at work. we're partnering with non-governmental organizations

4:09 am
borders illegally. that you're sending them across the country. you have no idea who they are. using tax dollars to put them on airplanes, buses, send them across the country to different place, usually places you think might benefit electoral being there. pete: it has been underplayed, i don't know if we have it cued up, that interview of the smuggler recently, why are you coming here? it is easier to get in under joe biden. how was it under trump? we didn't try. patrols all over the place t wasn't open. the smugglers themselves are saying what the results of the poll are. of course it. will: when you won't deport around won't enforce and won't disincentivize you will get more of it. good to see the american people seeing that. will: on that note poll respondents asked was the trump administration right or wrong to undo president trump's orders on immigration, should he left the policies in place. 55% said leave them in place. don't down the executive orders. rachel: will, i bet if they did
4:10 am
this poll with border states, texas, arizona, california, i bet that would just be blown out of the water. 55% would go to 75, 80%. because those people are feeling it the most directly. will: right. pete: this is a miss me yet moment? you didn't like the mean tweets. you didn't like the fact that i took on the press in a combative way. now the tweets are written by someone else. joe biden is asking the press, can we ask me happy questions? just ask me happy questions. don't pay attention to what is happening on the border. i've got my vice president who doesn't really want the job, doesn't have the title, go to the border once for 20 minutes, she has the border on lockdown. will: ask me questions which ice cream i chose. they did once again yesterday. can't get enough of that story. pete: did they really? >> two scoops of chocolate. rachel: cherry pie. why do we know this about him? tom homan was on prime time. i was on with him.

4:12 am
the bottom of. we know that human traffickng is a very lucrative business. it is more profitable for the cartels, than dope, drugs, running drugs across the border. the cartels are richer and more powerful than ever. that is one of the root causes of people wanting to cross the border. pete: we're facilitating it. we have stephen miller on the program. he was one of the architects how donald trump secured the border. 8:15. don't miss it. will: one hour from now. we'll turn to additional headlines for you. violence breaks out between dueling protests at a los angeles spa. the demonstrations were in response to a social media video the other day where a spa customer accused a transwoman exposing herself in the locker room, the women's locker room. fascinating video. you can see the customer protesting to spa management. now protesters on both sides of the issue were seen fighting in the streets as riot officers tried containing the chaos. the people protesting the spa

5:15 am
fourth of july. let's come back to those policies in just one moment. i'm going to share two stats with you. first, here's the number of southwest border encounters january to may this year. you can see it ticking up month by month to where we are in may, almost 200,000. 180,000 border encounters. but what's fascinating is, people don't seem to realize this, i want to share this number with you. voters significantly, according to a harvard-harris poll, underestimate the number of illegal immigrants coming here when they're asked, hey, how many do you think are crossing. the majority think, i don't know, between 10-50,000? almost all of them are under the 180,000 that is actually happening. why do you think people are so in the dark about what's happening along the southern border? >> that's a pretty stunning indictment of our media, isn't it? in other words, if you watch fox, you'll have a very clear understanding of what's happening on our southern border. but if i you, for example, get your news from any one of the

few major newspapers or your local news affiliate other than fox or maybe, for example, you get it from facebook or twitter and the stories that they're promoting, you would have no idea, no clue that that's what you were relying on for the situation on our southwest border. this is the greatest border disaster in american history. and it's not being covered. even an ounce of the attention that it deserves, in my honest opinion. will: yeah. it's just stunning that people don't understand the numbers and what's happening right now. for those that do, stephen, there's this poll. it shows that people think the biden administration should not have undone the trump administration's executive orders on illegal immigration. you can see 55% say they should have left those executive orders in place and, of course, joe biden did away with them on day one. we talk so much about root causes, steven. isn't this a root cause? >> it is the9 root cause. it is, in fact, the sole cause of the current border crisis.
5:17 am
president trump put into place -- and i know that that was there for ever single step of it -- the most effective and robust border security regime this country has ever had. functionally, zero people were caught and released at the southwest border. all of that was dismantled. you're talking about, for example, vice president harris' trips back and forth to los angeles over and over and over again. if you're the border czar, which she is, this should be all you're doing ever single day til this crisis is ended. how many americans, how many americans are killed because of the drugs pouring across our border that that is now open? will: right. >> what about our border agents and i.c.e. officers who are laboring under impossible conditions? who has their back in because it's certainly not this administration. will: hey, stephen, really quickly, you've been in the white house administration, you've been in these rooms, why do you think bind gave kamala
5:18 am
harris this job? why was she tasked with this job? >> my opinion is because they're throwing her under the bus. in all truth, i really believe that biden's staff understands their policies are a political loser. they felt they had to do it to satisfy their radical left base, and they want the vice president to take as much of the political damage as they can. but you know what? the buck stops with the president. joe biden can't run away from this. he cannot disown the crisis he created. and i just want to close by saying on this fourth of july, independence day, let's also send our thoughts to the border agents and i.c.e. officers who are keeping this country safe, again, with an administration that's doing everything they can to try to stop them. will: good sentiment. stephen miller, happy fourth of july, steven. >> thank you. will: up next, a wounded marine veteran stand for the national anthem. the man whoened the applauds of an entire arena -- amaze of an entire arena with us next. ♪♪ army, navy, air force and

5:53 am
in the meantime -- rachel: oh -- pete: that was me jumping with the golden knights. will: meantime, here's what we discuss. you've done this, i've done that as well, tandem. rachel said she would never do it. rachel: never. i would never allow, no, never. i'm afraid of heights. i don't want that experience. [laughter] i don't want to land like you just did right there. i don't want any of that. will: so, pete, i've done this -- here's the scariest moment, i'm assuming abby's doing a tandem jump. it's after the chute catches and you're -- the freefall is just all adrenaline, all screaming, there's no -- rachel: not even when you first, like, leave the plane? will: that's surreal. there's this guy on your back kind of helping you along. the scariest part, he has to adjust where you're attached to him, so he lets the straps go a little bit. so you scoot down on his body, and you're afraid the strap is going -- pete: oh, man, i forgot about
5:54 am
that. rachel: scary. pete: we've both done it tandem. i was not airborne quaffed, never went to -- qualified, i was always on the ground. we did air assaults, get off of a helicopter. the guys who do this on a regular basis, hundreds of jumps, thousands of jumps, they get to the place where it's all normal. and those are the guy we're strapped to, it's tuesday for them, and they're like, okay. will: right. pete: i don't know, we're going to keep checking in on abby -- rachel: we want to make sure she's okay. will: i think we had a shot of the blue sky. pete: in good hands. the navy leapfrogs -- rachel: i suppose, if you're going to jump with anyone -- pete: golden knights or the navy -- will: i hate to be the director, can we get the shot? pete: unless she's invisible -- will: nothing but blue skies. she's here? >> three minutes you are clear the drop.
5:55 am
pete: control there. will: there we go. rachel: there! okay, good. pete: wow. >> clear to drop, second pass. rachel: go, abby. pete: on that one, they're saying. will: is that abby? rachel: that's abby. pete: we're going to go with that being abby. rachel: i can tell. [laughter] will: that's, in fact, not abby -- [laughter] rachel: i was just going to say, i think i'd see her -- that looks like a solo jump per if. i don't know,. >> >> is she -- pete: a very impressive individual. it's not clear that she's a qualified jump -- will: well, i think that only takes a couple hours, to jump solo. we've got our first navy leapfrog coming in. touchdown. rachel: that's a beautiful -- pete: they make it look easy. rachel: i was going to say, that is an amazing landing. pete: i once went to a football game where they -- will: we've got three different jumpers.
5:56 am
i don't think that's abby pulling off the trick. abby's going to be last. last out of how many, i don't know. pete: welcome to fox and friends. rachel: poorly produced. [laughter] just kidding, guys. [laughter] pete: we're having fun. the flips though. rachel: top of the screen. top of the screen is abby. will: the one doing the twirlly bird? rachel: wow, i'm impressed. that's her. pete: you also don't realize how fast they're going. rachel: she is tandem, pete. so those tricks are maybe her but probably somebody else. will: so this one, we are being told, live reports here, i'm checking my earpiece, that one is abby hornacek. pete: that's right. i'm also being told we're going to move the commercial break by a little bit. we're not going to cut you off
5:57 am
and miss the landing. will: this is breaking news. we're rolling live here. pete: do you think abby knows how many people are waiting for her right now? will: do you think she'd feel awkward if she knew? rachel: she's going to remember this, who gets to jump out of a plane with the navy parachute team? pete: look at that. rachel: wow. will: i think we're getting close -- pete: now they're just showing off. will: abby hornacek coming in hot. i've got a 30-second count here. pete: all right. we're hearing, you know, communications with still the pilot, sounds like there's other people jumping. wonder what that thing behind -- will: that's going to, i bet that's something to help those tricks out ott. pete: tell me more, will. [laughter] pleasure. rachel: this is why -- pete: there we go, you see four pairs of legs.
5:58 am

5:59 am
us. >> reporter: jim, how's my hair? >> beautiful, beautiful. that's the wind blown look. we just jumped out -- first of all, i just want to reiterate what you guys do is just absolutely incredible. as we were coming down, you see everything down here. jim, that was -- jumping out of one of those in an airplane? >> the chinook is the workhorse for the army. that can haul just a bunch of stuff the, you know, artillery and people. so they use those for all kinds of different things, but a helicopter can land almost anywhere. but when we're up at altitude, it's really just another thing we can jump out of. but they're really nice, you know, they can maneuver a lot better, is so we're looking if t for timing, they're easier for timing. >> reporter: i just want to say thank you again. happy independence day to all of you guys. i mean, again, how long -- what jump was that for you? >> let's just say that was 21,500. will: abby, what number jump was
6:00 am
that for you? >> reporter: that was number three total or -- for me, but it was the best one because i've never jumped with the navy if leapfrogs, and i felt like we were going so much faster. i forgot to breathe this for a second. with. will: and you were doing tricks in the air. you were spinning around. >> reporter: we were. could you guys see that? he said, oh, we did a back flip out of the plane if as well. >> we did a gainer off the ramp. >> reporter: people are having fun here at the air show. will: we had fun watching you. pete: abby hornacek. >> reporter: they're not having as much fun as we had. navy leapfrogs, you guys are the best. pete: we'll check back in with you guys in a minute. the chinook, by the way, it's like a flying school bus. abby hornacek. so here we are, top of the 9:00 hour. we're going to reset here on fox and friends.
6:01 am
will: it's set -- pete: oh, i thought we were going to play the quantico band. [laughter] sometimes when you reset during the weekday, they've got the video with that plays for a minute. will: hey, welcome to "fox & friends." will cain, rachel cam bose duffly and -- campos-duffy and pete hegseth. happy fourth of july. in new york city outside of our studios in fox square we have flags lined up, a swimming pool, we have a barbecue. we'd like to thank tunnels to towers for the american flags all across fox square this morning. rachel: we had a list earlier of the most patriot you can states, the least patriot you can, new york was ranked the least patriotic. but this corner is the most patriotic corner in all of new york right now. pete: yeah. we're holding down the fort. take a knee, drink water, we're holding down the fort on this tiny little square in manhattan.
6:02 am
we're so glad you're with us on america's birthday. and we'd like to think here at fox we're the most patriotic network, and i know hannity and tucker might take issue with it, but we know at "fox & friends," we're so grateful to god for this nation and its birth 245 years ago. and it's worth taking a moment on a day like this to recognize that. the first principle, the flag. the things that were fought for because they believed it was the right thing to do for men to live free. so we're going to read a small portion of the declaration of independence, the document that started all this, because these truths that are self-evident remain to this day. here's a portion of the declaration of independence. we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unail a yen bl rights and among those rights are the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. to secur rights, governments are institutedded among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the
6:03 am
governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such forms as to them shall seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness. such wise words from a group of people who knew when they signed that document, they were crossing the crown, traitors of the crown fighting for their own independence. rachel: right. yeah, it was under fear of death, and they knew that. they knew that their families could lose their fortunes. they did it anyway. and this moment is just, it's just so important because i think a lot of people feel like not only, first of all, these words are timeless, but they have meaning right now in a very special way. i know that we've been talking all morning about reflecting back what we feel,, what we know so much of our audience feels which is that this is slipping away and that this is the time
6:04 am
to fight for america. a lot of people when they hear those words, see these flags, they tear up, and they feel like is the next general ration going to tear up and feel the same way that you do right now. and that is what is at stake right now. you're not the minority, you're the majority. there's just a small group of people who are really, i think, putting this country under attack. will: yeah. and at the risk of sounding repetitive this morning, much of this day and what we wrap ourselves in, the flag, our traditions, they are symbols. they're symbols of something greater. the thing that is greater are the principles that you just read off that underlie this nation, that we have rights, that we're endowed by our creator. those rights have been fought and died for. for the first time really in the history of man, we embrace concepts like freedom and equality. often applied imperfectly throughout our country, but that does not undercut the importance of those principles, the eternity of those principles x. that, honestly, is what we should all feel so much pride in
6:05 am
today. while there are others who want to redefine america, this is a reminder of what is best about us. pete: it was an experiment from the beginning. our found ors studied athens and rome and jerusalem, they understood the bible, they understood human nature. they saw what spail failed for kings and queens and despots, and they said let's lets we, the people, govern, but we need to put constraints because we are corrupted. and then they unleashed the most free, the most to just, the most tolerant, the most prosperous nation -- rachel: the most generous -- pete: the one that has liberated other countries to allow them to live free. it's so easy to tear it down and point out the sins and flaws. no nation is perfect. north is ours, we know that. but my goodness, recognize and appreciate, be grateful for what we've been given because it's been gifted by people who fought for us. will: so easy to tear down, so hard to create. most revolutions fail. the united states' e revolution
6:06 am
succeeded. rachel: it absolutely did. "the washington post," you talk about focusing on what's good about america, the washington postfocusing on what's not so great about america according to them. they say maybe -- this is their headline, maybe it's time to admit that the statue of liberty has never quite measured up. this is "the new york times"' headline, a fourth of july symbol of unity that may no longer unite. will: and that was about the more than flag. i mean, are they symbols of unity? they're symbols of principles that unify if us. the symbols embody those or remind us of those principles that at one time we thought were unifying factors and increasingly in today's day and age, they seem to not be. at least for some out there. rachel: we played a clip earlier of former donald trump at a rally yesterday in sarasota the, florida. he talked about we're celebrating july 4, 1776, not 1619. it's so important that we we remember that. again, this idea that we are the
6:07 am
principles we gather around in 1776. there's a small group of people who say 1619,, but they have a lot of influence over our children right now, and they're trying to make 1619 and america's flaws the central point that we should think about. and they're trying to make people who with, as i ending manged earlier, tear the up or love our flag, make them feel like they're white supremacists or facebook says they're extremists or they're insurrectionists or, you know, if you're a minority, you know, you're bei take your race. no. these are unifying similar toll bolls. -- symbols. and if we're not careful, we're going to let that small minority absolutely indoctrinate the next generation. we've seen all these polls showing patriotism declining. so you're not imagining it, people out there. you're not imagining it. now's the time to fight for it. pete: who's lived up to anything ever? principles are meant to be aspired to. that's why martin luther king is such a great example. he stood and said black people in this country are treated
6:08 am
