3:01 am
end critical race theory. >> they're buffaloing teachers by frying to stop us from teaching accurate history. we must unite. >> they expect aaron rogers to win the match. there it is. that a way partner. >> win capital one's the match. brian: we can stop hugging and getting serious now. tropical storm elsa barreling towards florida's northern gulf coast. ainsley: that storm is bringing a lot of wind and heavy rain. expected to make landfall this morning into early afternoon. pete: steve harrigan is live in clearwater beach, florida. steve, how are the conditions this morning? >> pete, it's breezy here. and the rain is steady. that's the real danger from this storm is going to be the rain all along florida's west coast. some areas have gotten up to 9 inches of rain from this storm. and elsa has weakened. it was twice a category 1 hurricane. now it's a tropical storm with gusts of over 65 miles per hour.
3:02 am
pretty much sustained winds above 60. 33 counties in florida are in a state of emergency. and there's a danger, too of flooding. a possible flood surge of 3 to . the florida keys got hit pretty hard on tuesday. 60 mile-per-hour winds and 4 inches of rain. what's going to happen next with this storm is expected to make landfall north of here around cedar key and then move across the state of florida into coastal georgia where flood warnings already are in effect. guys back to you. pete: oh, man. brian: thanks, so much, steve. appreciate it janice dean joins us with the weather. we hear good things it's downgraded a degree? janice: it is weakening. i have got to tell you the last few frames show convection blowing up of the thunderstorm. there is the potential for some fluctuation of the strength before it makes landfall. the results are going to be the same though. we are going to see to 5 inches
3:03 am
of widespread heavy rainfall. the threat for tropical storm tornadoes as well. tornado watch in effect for all these big cities fort myers, tampa and orlando. sometimes we can see structural damage with some of these tornadoes. the water is very warm along the coast. we could see the potential for some strengthening as it potentially makes landfall, we think, later on this morning into the afternoon. so there's the latest track. we will get new coordinates 8:00 a.m. relatively the track has been the same over the last couple of days. it's going to move into the southeast and still remain a tropical storm potentially bringing heavy rainfall to georgia and south carolina. so we still have tropical advisories and tropical storm warnings as well as a hurricane warning for the cedar key area. so, again, we are expecting the potential for hurricane force conditions along the big bend and the gulf coast of florida. there's the forecast radar as we go through today and thursday. >> still remaining a tropical storm into thursday and even friday as it eventually exits
3:04 am
the coast. the flooding is going to be the biggest concern, right? this is the biggest concern with these tropical landfalling tropical systems and hurricanes. we have flood advisories to reflect that 3 to 5 inches. some areas could get isolated amounts of 8 to 9 inches. the other big story i want to touch upon is the heat. onrequesting across the west with temperatures well over 100 degrees. so we have heat advisories in effect. we will be tracking elsa's path all morning long. we will keep you up to date. pete, ainsley, brian, back to you. >> it's interesting, janice, the path of the storm through at least the carolinas it goes to the middle of the state. normally does it hug the coast? normally we see it hit the charleston area vs. columbia. janice: just depends on what the steering pattern is. it has it moving inland and across the georgia area and carolinas. it does happen, obviously, it depends on what the upper level steering conditions were. pete. brian: i thought eclipse last night 7:00 everything went dark,
3:05 am
quit blinking. ainsley: a lot of people are without power in florida. brian: turn off the sun, we dimmed iting you. brian: thank you so much. finally joe biden will go door to door and beg us to take a vaccine. do you believe this? ainsley: this the is the latest. brian: barely missed his goal. ainsley: almost 50%. brian: people are making their own decisions. ainsley: a lot of people have already had covid so they don't want to get the vaccine. brian: they never bring that up. steve. pete: almost hit the target. 68% instead of 70. never add on top of it 15, 0, 25, 30% of people that have had cody and have natural immunity or even a fraction of that you are still above that goal. yet, the new aannouncement from the white house is the government might be at your door with a needle ready to go and a clipboard because that's latest effort door-to-door vaccine for
3:06 am
americans. watch this. >> so, please get vaccinated now. it works. it's free. it's never been easier. and it's never been more important. do it now. for yourself and the people you care about. for your neighborhood, for your country. it sounds corny but it's a patriotic thing to do. we are continuing to wind down the mask vaccination sites that did so much in the spring to rapidly vaccinate those eager to get their first shot and their second shot for that matter if they needed a second. now we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes door-to-door knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus. ainsley: people are up in arms about this. because we as americans can make our own choices. brian: thank you. ainsley: for our own families and our own bodies. and when someone is knocking at your door with a vaccine, are
3:07 am
they going to have the shot in their hand or are they going to encourage you to go, ask you questions like the census bureau does? listen, when you are cooking or watching a movie, opportunity someone knocking on your door that you don't know that's a stranger. pete: after you have every opportunity. trust me everyone is aware where the cody vaccines are if they want to go get a free shot. the only answer when the government comes knocking at the door my body, my choice, see you later and shut the door. ultimately we are responsible people that can make that call for ourselves. i don't know if they will be walking around with needles preparing to do it on the spot. who knows. brian: dan crenshaw how about don't knock on my door. let people free to choose. why is that concept so hard for the left? here is the thing we are hearing about more and more people are saying i'm not saying the epidemic isn't a problem no one addresses the fact that there is people having negative reaction especially because a lot, including my daughter's both their schools are saying for you
3:08 am
to play sports, you have got to get vaccinated and they are doing it with some schools in new york and i'm hearing this across the country get vaccinated before school. ainsley: how scary is that for you as a parent hearing all these kids having heart problems and inflammation. brian: yesterday fabio it joined us and his two sons got vaccinated for school. one is a senior. he said okay do what your brother did. get vaccinated and listen to what happened to him from pfizer. >> he was required to get the vaccine for schools. i have never thought anything about it everything is low risk. everybody said it's fine. a week later i came home and he started telling me that his heart was hurting him. next thing i know next day i get a call bad news he needs to go to the hospital. it's it tropemin levels were off
3:09 am
the chart. normal is 40 his was 9,000. he can't do what he loves to do and hang out with his friends and do what other kids do. the biggest part he can't play soccer in the fall which broke his heart and my heart. ainsley: you saw dr. nicole saphier with him. she tweeted out vaccine conversation should be between a doctor and patient. not by a grass root government door knocker. there is this michigan teenager who died days after getting that second shot. his aunt says he was healthy, no underlying medical conditions. he complained of a fever and fatigue after that second shot he died in his sleep. he was only 13 years old. then there is the utah teenager 17-year-old everest romney hospitalized for bloodshot in his brain days after getting the vaccine. several teenage boys heart inflammation after the vaccine. i know it's rare, parents can make the choice or kids make the choice after talking to doctors. it's not for the government to decide. pete: it's a risk reward. kids have not been susceptible to this virus. if there is a risk out there,
3:10 am
why would do you that when you have an option not to? the only thick saving most people from a mandate here is the fact it's an emergency use vaccine for right now. i think it's wait until the teachers unions get their grips on this next year demanding. brian: they got vaccinated. pete: never good enough. ainsley: did they ask anyone on soccer teams girls teams have you already had covid. antibodies. brian: doesn't enter into it antibody test should be as common as covid-19 test. pete: i agree. brian: you don't have it then you are eligible for the vaccine. talk about what it is like to get the vaccine once you have had. your body says i'm already armored up for this what are you doing? maybe that's the trouble with the response. pete: need more answers. and just let people choose. all right. we mentioned teacher's unions. the head of one of america's teachers unions taking a shot at critics. ainsley: at you. pete: including myself.
3:11 am
brian: your name came up. >> friends, pete hegseth mocked our safety concerns. pete: i think i did. more on that and her defense of critical race theory coming up next. brian: they get. they got vaccinated already. ♪ note call me ♪ i've lost count of how many asthma attacks i've had. but my nunormal with nucala? fewer asthma attacks. nucala is a once-monthly add-on injection for severe eosinophilic asthma. not for sudden breathing problems. allergic reactions can occur. get help right away for swelling of face, mouth, tongue, or trouble breathing. infections that can cause shingles have occurred. don't stop steroids unless told by your doctor. tell your doctor if you have a parasitic infection. may cause headache, injection-site reactions, back pain, and fatigue. ask your doctor about nucala. find your nunormal with nucala.

3:18 am
>> a lot of people talking about it on the couch. ainsley: we did it as a talking point later in the show. brian: talking point. ainsley: it was i, brian. brian: you are right, carley, she is self-centered. ainsley: never. brian: all right. ainsley: we are glad to have you here, carley. jillian on earlier. carley: that's right. i'm taking over for her for the rest of the morning. she will be back tomorrow. ainsley: we like having you here steve. pete: i didn't say a word. ainsley: did you think this was a newscast we are have girl time. brian: do you want to switch seats? all right. go ahead. pete: let's do it. carley: yours is not comfortable. yours has a big hole in it lawrence jones brian brine lawrence jones crushed it.

3:20 am
teachers who teach critical race theory. >> critical race theory is not taught in elementary school or middle school or high school it's a med of examination taught in law school and in college that helps analyze whether systemic racism exists. and, in particular, whether it has an effect on law and public policy. but cultural warriors are labeling any discussion of race, racism, or discrimination as crt to try to make it toxic. these culture warriors want to deprive students of a robust understanding of our common history. years ago our country unified against holocaust deniers.
3:21 am
we must unite again to address racism and it's long-term effects. pete: okay, so if you don't like critical race theory or the diversity, equity inclusion, anti-racism whatever they dress it up as k through 12 then you are a holocaust denier. they are the deniers, they deny it's in the classroom in another clip she says we have a fund to defend teachers criticized by parents for teaching anti-racism. yesterday we had the national education association admitted that they're openly teaching it critical race theory and the zen education project. brian: most anti-american book. pete: they have now 5,000 signature petitions of teachers saying even if the state has banned critical race theory we are going to teach it anyway. by the way who is coming on today on their virtual conference? ebrim x. kinde the guy who wrote the book. the guy on the frontlines will
3:22 am
addressing them today. brian: they are not teaching it k true 12, are they? here is randi weingarten yesterday. >> we must support each other. unions supporting unions and teachers supporting school staff and families supporting student. some will make it harder those disparaged educators. scapegoated our unions and blamed us for things outside our control like school closures on "fox & friends" pete hegseth mocked our safety concerns saying that we're rigging it so teachers don't have to go to work. [sigh. [as if teaching remotely isn't and wasn't incredibly hard work. i have been the target of a lot of these right wing disinformation campaigns. that comes with the territory. pete: let me say it again randi weingarten is rigging it so that
3:23 am
teachers don't have to go back to work. she has from the beginning. there is always a sliding scale. first it was you have got to lock down. everyone has to wear a mask. including the kids. cdc 6 feet to 3 feet. no we can't do that. better ventilation. then you have got to vaccinate all the teachers. the teachers all get vaccinated still can't go back to school. remember when she called out jewish critics who were saying she was reopening too slowly that they are part of the ownership class? then you use marxist language to describe your critics all the while what they are doing is extortion. they are saying we won't come back unless you fund our ventilation. you fund our social justice projects. you allow us to teach curriculum. she is a union hack who defends membership very. how about imrosry clerks and truck drivers and police officers and how about people that do blue collar jobs across the country just like teachers? they were all back to work for a year. they are all back to work a year and a half. kids in inner city schools the
3:24 am
most blue areas affected the most because the unions have the most power there they have been shut down because of people like randy weingarten. brian: no one has done more damaged to students than teachers unions. they sat there and danced. it people most vulnerable paid the biggest prices she is totally disingenuous in saying that she acts like it was out of her control when we found communication between her and the cdc. the cdc cut and pasted the same language the teacher union told them and said this is our policy now. oh, we were victims or we just waited to get the green light? you were actually controlling the light. ainsley: i didn't grow up in a state where we had teachers unions. in south carolina, i don't think there interest any areas, at least in my district where i grew up. my mom was teacher for 33 years. my sister is a teacher in charleston. we weren't used to these unions telling us what to do. you were used to your superintendent of schools telling the schools what they were going to do or the principal. when i go around the country and we sit with these parents whose
3:25 am
kids are still not in school and worried about if they are going to go back in the fall, they all say the same thing we have to be the advocates for our kids. the teachers unions advocate for the teachers and what's best for them but what about our student. they say they have gone a year, sometimes a year and a half without learning anything basically because it's all been on zoom. they all say if the teachers are all vaccinated and have the opportunity to get the vaccine. pete: they can wear mavericks if they want. ainsley: exactly. why aren't our kids back in the classroom? brian: it's ridiculous. florida went back to school and don't have to worry about the unions. pete: that was a virtual conference for the teacher union. did you watch game one of the nba finals last night? 20,000 people in a stadium. unions are still doing virtual conferences. prescribe brian that's a great point. big story that maybe you might have missed because maybe it does not affect you directly but man does it affect a lot of people. up to 1500 businesses across the globe may have been ancted by the latest ransomware attack. this company hit this software firm located in miami called the
3:26 am
kaseya group that affected. ainsley: it company all over the world. brian: $70 million they are asking for to undo all the damage that they did in terms of ransom. i hope they haven't paid it yet. you never know but the big story is it's not a big story to the president of the united states. ainsley: he said it's very minimal. a lot of people are saying russia is testing us. are they hacking some of these smaller companies? 1500 businesses were affected. look at the colonial pipeline. here is our president minimizing it. >> mr. president on the latest ransomware attack can you tell us if you believe that rises to the level of u.s. retaliation? >> i can tell you a couple things. i received an updated my national security team this morning. it appears to have caused minimal damage to u.s. businesses but we are still gathering information to the full extent of the attack and i'm going to have more to say about this in the next several
3:27 am
days. we are getting more details and information. that's what i can tell you now and i feel good about our ability to -- >> is putin testing you, sir? pete: but our ability to -- close my notes. brian: interacting with dozens of other nations. they two weeks after gave him a list of places not to hit which is ridiculous on its face. we are absolutely being tested. the world needs us to stand up to russia. that's the responsibility he has. where are all those people who said president trump was so weak on russia when the president was the one coming down on them hard with human sanctions missile deal. pipeline in europe he just green lighted president biden. he couldn't finish his sentence. he has no idea what he said. he actually says on his sheet i think i'm very angry and
3:28 am
pursuing every possible angle to find out who is responsible. is he a total robot in this situation. he has no idea what's going on. pete: even the "new york times" is acknowledging the obvious here. here's a quote from the article in the "new york times" saying the twin attacks are a test for mr. biden just three weeks after he, in his first meeting it as president with mr. putin demanded that the russian leader rein in ransomware attacks against the united states. the new ransomware appears to cross many lines that mr. biden said he would no locker tolerate. those lines in the sand that don't exist. ainsley: it sends such a message to other countries you can do this to us, we are not going to fight back and we are going to pay your ransom. pet pete it's minimal. brian: they better not pay the ransom. there needs to be it between private infrastructure. it needs to happen yesterday. we need to have offensive plan already in place should this happen.
3:29 am
we assess within 24 to 48 hours. as soon as our intelligence appear ratted tuesday says it's a go, it's a former agent located outside moscow. you hit them. that's it. end of story. pete: look away, brian. i don't get it u.s. companies, their government can't protect them and you are looking away? ainsley: listen if you own a u.s. company you better protect yourself. brian: that's true. ainsley: the government is not going to protect you. brian: that's true from sony on down. ainsley: violent crime surging including in the suburbs of georgia. one in atlanta wants to break free from the city. we will talk to a georgia native jeremy hunt next. with voltaren arthritis pain gel my husband's got his moves back. an alternative to pain pills voltaren is the first full prescription strength gel

tropical tornadoes today unfortunately to a tornado watch is in effect for the next several hours. that's going to continue through the day today even the overnight for parts of the southeast. this is the latest track. we will get new coordinates at the top of the hour and it looks like it maintains its tropical status throughout thursday into friday and maybe even can coming close to the northeast. there is the windfield. we are still going to feel hurricane force gusts along the big bend and north gulf coast of florida and even into parts of the southeast and georgia. so, heavy rainfall is going to be the biggest legacy from the storm. we are certainly going to see some storm surge, tropical tornadoes and very strong wind gusts as well. brian, i will toss it back to you. hi my friends back there. brian: they seem nice and they seem safe. thank you very much. violent crime surging not just in major cities but even in suburbs, especially georgia. in cobb county police believe golf pro-shot dead on the course

because he may have witnessed a crime. this comes after a jogger was shot twice in one of atlanta's richest nashedz neighborhoods last month. now residents of that town are looking to break free from atlanta. we have been hearing it for a while. here to discuss it is jeremy native hunt. why do you think all of a sudden the crime in atlanta is going out and bleeding into the suburbs. >> it's a crisis of failed leadership, brian. i mean, if you look at the city of atlanta, the leadership there, this is not some random covid crime wave as the mayor likes to say. this is what happens when you fail to support the people men and women who will protect the city. the mayor won't defend them. this is what happens. it's a crisis i can't tell you how serious this issue is. the murder rate is up 40% in the city. there have been 368 shootings
3:36 am
just this year, brian, in the city of atlanta. so this is so real and a lot of people are very afraid obviously they are doing whatever they can to come up with creative solutions to defend their communities. brian: if you are not safe on a golf course where are you safe. murders up 33%. incident up 56% overall. rape up 86%. robbery 17%. no help is coming from the federal government because they are on the fence between critical race theory and no justice reform don't go prison no cash bail. buck head says you can't handle my security i'm not giving my tax dollars and putting into a sinkhole. we want our sovereignty. let buck head have their own police force. you are not for this movement, why? >> i city can stay together and come up with solutions that the benefit the entire city. this issue is not just exclusive
3:37 am
to buck head it's all the neighborhoods around the city. i would love to see the city come together and come up with creative solutions so that everyone can benefit from this but let's be clear. i think it's a good thing that buck head is at least putting pressure on the city to do something about this. brian: jeremy, have you heard the mayor speak, she is basically blaming the cops for everything. >> oh, yeah. that's kind of the democrat talking point right now. if anything goes wrong blame the people who are out on the street actually trying to make things better. i mean, i don't understand the logic there. and i think that's why she is not running for re-election because she realizes that the failed leadership has resulted in actual and real victims being terrorized by the crime in this city. i mean, i just ask everyone to pray for the city. pray the people would start to value their lives and start not shooting each other and understand their lives have intrinsic value and actually put
3:38 am
a stop to this crime epidemic that's taking over right now. brian: i know, more people like you who have risen through atlanta to go into the military and now you are going to get your -- getting your degree from ivy league education and then able to speak about this. more people like you, we wouldn't have this problem. i actually thoroughly back the people of buck head and i think other communities have to take charge of their own security if the cities won't. they are helpless to do it they're tired of getting shot while jogging, jeremy. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. brian: president biden is introducing controversial new effort to make sure you are vaccinated. he wants to show up at your front door. do you believe this? dr. siegel on what i think is backlash. ♪

begin with and after all it brings all humaner aside it brings home a more important point. who is it you should have the conversation with about whether to have the vaccine or not? who? your physician. ainsley: your doctor. >> someone like me. a primary care person who can tell you the risks and the benefit. the risks of the virus. the benefits of the vaccine. the risks of the vaccine. i do that in my office every single day. president biden doesn't any how to do that and his minions should not be doing that. ainsley: should be between a patient and their doctor. plus a lot of people already had covid. they might not need the vaccine because they have the antibodies. >> well, that's right. they may need one dose down the line. but they are definitely under plying that card. people that have had covid, you are right, ainsley, they have antibodies. they have been proven to have antibodies for a year according to some studies. you can't travel with those antibodies and you should be able to. you are right. down the line maybe one shot
3:45 am
after having had natural immunity. again, the vaccine has great value. but it's doctor-patient. by the way i don't have the vaccine in my office, ainsley. that's another thing. they never figured out to get small enough sleeves of this vaccine so that primary care doctors give out half the vaccines in the united states actually have them to give out. ainsley: wow, that's interesting. dr. siegel, how concerned are you about the delta variant and if you have had one of the three vaccines are you protected? >> i think you are very well protected with the vaccines. i think that they will keep you out of the hospital almost definitely prevent you from anything severe or dying. i think that you still could get a very mild case. i think the delta variant is a real issue in states where there is not a lot of vaccination but it's being overbehind. let me give you an example, in florida and in missouri, ainsley, the numbers are up but do you know how deaths there were in those two states yesterday from covid? ainsley: how many? >> one. just one. in each state just one.
3:46 am
and in springfield, missouri they are talking about 20% increase in hospitalizations. i talk to people in springfield yesterday. it's an issue but, again, it's been hyped. it's not nearly what they are saying it is. so it's something to keep an eye on. it's something to get vaccinated about. it's something to be aware of but not something to overreact to. ainsley: dr. siegel, thank you so much. >> thanks, ainsley. ainsley: you are welcome. hand it over to carley for more headlines. carley: we are going to start with a fox news alert as tropical storm elsa barrels towards florida. the coast guard is searching for nine people who went missing in waters south of key west. now, these pictures show the coast guard rescuing people from the rough sea earlier. at the time they were working against heavy rain and 70 mile-per-hour winds. in total, 15 people were rescued. we will keep you updated on all the latest search efforts as the coast guard releases more information. to another fox news alert now,

pete: a maryland congressman and retired army colonel is calling for criminal justice reform in the military. and more diversity in its
3:53 am
leadership. congressman anthony brown arguing, quote: the current military justice system has put service members of color at a disadvantage and left them subject to a commander-controlled system they do not trust. here to react army veteran and texas congressional candidate wesley hunt. thank you so much for being here. so, do you know, black and brown service members mistrust their commanders and the military justice system? >> short answer is no. and the way for us to end racism is not by teaching it indoctrinating reverse racism. and, again, this is another push from the left who continue to divide this country based on racial lines we see it in politics. we see republican if you are inherently racist. seeing it in critical race theory. we are seeing it now with our military. we are attacking us. you and i both know, pete, our military is in fact a meritocracy and the only thing that matters is the man and woman to your left and right in accomplishing the mission that our country gives to us. pete: a meritocracy with
3:54 am
standards that everyone is expected to follow black, white, colonel, or private. it's pretty straightforward. here is another portion of the op-ed and excerpt from it that i think shines a little bit of light where he is coming from. the current military justice system is not serving our country's higher values of justice, equity, and fairness. and there it is. it's not -- everything has gone from equality to equity which is a very different word. it's an equal outcome vs. equal opportunity. and do you see that seeping into the way military now sees subordinates and commanders? >> well, unfortunately, it is. and when we were in the military performance is what mattered. it didn't matter what you looked like. my sister went to west point. i went to west point. so did my brother. we could all speak to what service means to us personally and it had nothing to do with what we looked like. but i also think this is actually a push to defund our military.
3:55 am
we are -- we have divided our country by trying to defund the police and i think the next push is a defund the military. defund the dod push. and where does it end? and that's why it's very important for us to take back the house here in 2022 to stop this push. pete: you know, i had a black battalion commander in iraq. a black s 3 in my battalion. none of that was at issue or of even conversation when it pertained to his authority to make decisions about, you know, lieutenant hegseth and my conduct. considering where we have come as a country, would you say the military today is setting this aside, this whole idea of criminal justice reform a less justice institution than it used to be more a meritocracy without this critical race theory nonsense? >> just ask my father. my father is a are retired lieutenant colonel. he came up in the military during the 1970s and 19 will 0s. i understand during that time curly we were at a different place. the argument that we are more
3:56 am
racist now than we were then is absolutely ridiculous. we have certainly evolved. we have certainly now gotten to a incident to where we focus more on the merit and the content of one's character in our military and that's actually why we have gotten so far and come to far in a really short period of time. again, it's a power grab for the left to divide this country. pete: that's right. >> based on race. we have got to stop this. pete: maybe it's because we have come so far that they now want to tear it down even more. maybe you will be in the halls of congress able to take on consideration like this very soon wesley hunt, thank you so much. >> we will be. god bless you. pete: political hot cake driving force in rise in violent crime bonationwide is summer. ...you can save up to 30% on your auto insurance. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for.

i order my groceries online now. shingles doesn't care. i keep my social distance. shingles doesn't care. i stay within my family bubble. shingles doesn't care. because if you've had chicken pox, you're already carrying the virus that causes shingles. in fact, about 1 in 3 people will develop shingles, and the risk only increases as you age. so what can protect you against shingles? shingrix protects. now you can protect yourself from shingles with a vaccine proven to be over 90% effective. shingrix is a vaccine used to prevent shingles in adults 50 years and older. shingrix does not protect everyone and is not for those with severe allergic reactions to its ingredients or to a previous dose.
4:00 am
an increased risk of guillain-barré syndrome was observed after vaccination with shingrix. the most common side effects are pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site, muscle pain, tiredness, headache, shivering, fever, and upset stomach. talk to your pharmacist or doctor about protecting yourself with shingrix. shingles doesn't care. but we do. brian: tropical storm elsa barreling towards florida's northern gulf coast. >> 33 counties in a state of emergency. janice: the water is very warm so we could see some potential for strengthening as it makes landfall. >> the white house blaming the crime spike on seasonal changes? we see spikes touring summer months often touring holiday weekends. >> the government is turning a blind eye in some cases releasing criminals on the streets while trying to take away the means of self-defense from law-abiding citizens. >> the biden administration moving $60 million in coast funds cover cost of housing migrant children. >> worried about covid but backpacking people into will

4:02 am
rescue operations underway. this storm downgraded to tropical storm. impact across florida is widespread. it's expected to make landfall north of here in cedar key in the coming hours with sustained winds of about 65 miles per hour. the storm itself is about 50 miles off the coast. so we're not getting hammered by wind. but there is a lot of rain. some areas expected to get up to 8 inches of five foot storm surgeon. schools are closed and government offices are closed people are told not to drive on the roads. some airport are closed there have been no mandatory evacuations but has affected the search for survivors in surfside. more than 30 counties have declared states of emergency and 15,000 people have lost power across the entire state of florida. after it moves across northern florida it heads to georgia likely to cause flooding there, too. guys, back to you. ainsley: thank you, steve. and our senior meteorologist janice dean joins us now with the fox weather center and the latest on elsa's track.
4:03 am
where is it heading, janice? >> it doesn't take a hurricane to cause incredible damage to, you know, areas along the coast like we are seeing right now. and we could see the potential for a a bit of strengthening before it makes landfall later this morning and the afternoon. and we have a new tornado watch in effect. so with these land falling tropical systems we have the rotation with those counterclockwise winds moving online and the potential for tropical tornadoes that could cause damage. wind gusts 30 miles offshore but as you get inland, look at gainville 33 mile-per-hour. not just a coastal event move well inland and up towards the northeast as a tropical system not losing any characteristics for the next couple of days. we are expecting a landfall. you can see some of that thunderstorm activity around the center of circulation. and the water is very warm along the coast. so the potential for a little bit of strengthening as it moves inland the tornado threat ongoing today through this evening and we still have a
4:04 am
hurricane warning in effect for cedar keys where we expect landfall later on this morning and into the afternoon. so, it doesn't have to be a hurricane to cause a lot of damage and we are expecting the potential for three to five inches of heavy rainfall. strong gusty winds. the potential for tornadoes. not only today but thursday. maybe even into friday along the east coast. we will have to watch it pete, ainsley and brian, back to you. ainsley: thank you. brian: hesitant on brian doesn't want to toss back. ainsley: sorry. were easier to irish who is anchoring when you are in the studio versus outside. brian: could the control room pop upen our kyron before janice tosses so she could see easier. janice: summer and vacations a lot of people i have to remember. ainsley: can you remember bat or pat. janice: first initial of every name and make a sentence or a
4:05 am
word. pete: i relate. i had the same challenge at the diners. brian: put the little cards on the table. pete: people are talking to you. janice: brian, i love you, i will always love you. brian: there is a song like that. janice: i know there is. ainsley: janice had the map up of the united states there is so much crime. over fourth of july weekend. every state, you just did an interview about atlanta and the crime there. we know it's up here in new york. and jen psaki was asked about this meeting, the president is going to meet with the chicago mayor is that right the mayor today and so was asked about that. this is what she says, this is her reason for crime being up. >> we have seen raise goes up over the last 18 months around the country. including in the city of chicago. we see spikes in violent crime typically during summer months often, unfortunately during holiday weekends. we saw that over the last weekend. but i will say that he will continue to advocate for and the mayor may want to discuss this i
4:06 am
guess we will see or not. but increases in his budget including an additional $300 million more for the cops program that is then what i would say was approved in the prior trump administration budget. pete: oh, please. brian: continue this spin? pushing to expand cops programs? pete: they're the refunders now. brian: it is summer. when people wear short lives they are more likely to commit violence. when the weather gets better. pete: sun's out guns out. not about defunding police not letting criminals out of jail. rioters who got away with nothing. not about gang violence. over 20,000 gang members in chicago. nope, it's the summer and the guns. brian: right. there is also gun violence. they are looking to crack down on and gun dealers looking to crack down on. governor cuomo, i know, he still
4:07 am
has a job. it's mysterious to me. he has got 10 accusers. he had his staff write his book and he got $5 million during the pandemic thousand screw up a pandemic. no one bought the book. then he also has been accused of sexual assault. -- sexual harassment. he still has a job. it's up to governor cuomo, the self-righteous one to take things into his own hands to crack down on criminals by going after gun manufacturers. listen. -- we went from covid to the epidemic of gun violence. and the fear and the death that goes along with it it's been all over the newspapers. it is undeniable. it's so bad 'when you look at the recent numbers, more people are dying of gun violence than of code. it is an emergency. and i want the people of the state to understand that.
4:08 am
and i want them to respond to the emergency for the way it is. so today first state in the nation is going to declare a disaster emergency on gun violence. [cheers and applause] brian: wow, what a great move. because with the cash lps bail, basically you have to kill somebody with bare hands to get a night in jail. he has been so permissible criminals crack down on anybody who uses a gun that doesn't belong to them. ainsley: and manufacturers. you have a lot of experience in the military with guns, he says he wants to use fingerprint i.d. technology so you can't pull the trigger unless the gun recognizes your fingerprints? steve. pete: how many hundreds of millions of guns today. how many more can be manufactured to the idea is you have got have the technology of only your fingerprint can be used on a gun? the technology is out there. but it's not going to be used by everybody. and ultimately these laws hit law-abiding citizen. so as our cities will.
4:09 am
brian: crack down on hunters. pete: most of the violence by the way not committed by ar-15s. it's handgun violence. nonsense. want "new york post" points out new office of gun violence prevention will report to his health department. the health department that did such a great job during covid will now be handling the gun prevention violence task force that he declares an emergency. ainsley: what do they know about guns? pete: you tell me. what does he know about guns? brian: nothing. senator tom cotton knows a lot. listen. >> this is out of a page joe biden proposed a couple weeks ago to confiscate the rifles of law-abiding citizen but, in part, in many cases to protect themselves from the break down of law and order in our cities it would do nothing to stem the flow, to stem the violence on soft on crime policies almost all of which crimes are committed in cities with handguns not with rifles. think about that the government is turning a blind eye releasing criminals on the street to
4:10 am
terrorize and victimize our citizens while trying to take away the means of self-defense from law-abiding citizen. >> it is the absolute strawman argument to continually blame guns as if the person behind the gun bears no responsibility or there is no reason why they pulled that trigger. they do it every single time. even in psaki's insane explanation, she at least acknowledged that cops are part of the answer. even if she had to -- right at the end was a give away. they know what would need to be done. they just know what their base demands liberal base and go after those guns. ainsley: i heard a gun advocate talk about all the steps you have to take in order to fire a weapon. there is obviously thought put into that. you have to put the bullets in the casing in. you have. pete: magazine. in you have got to charge it and point it and pull it take the safety off. you know exactly what you are doing. ainsley: the guns don't shoot off by themselves. a person has to actually pull the trigger. brian: right. people are walking around with dvd's and getting in gun fights
4:11 am
because they have a dvd excuse and a marine gets shot in the back last week in times square. don't worry, governor cuomo is on it ains the pro-golfer was shot in atlanta at country club in kennesaw, georgia. pine tree country club. and some guy in a white pickup truck rolls out onto the green and the golfer walks over to the pickup truck what are you doing driving while w50e have golfers playing. two other bodies that police say were found inside that white pickup truck. one was the driver of the whited pickup truck that golfer was shot dead. brian: meanwhile, we have done this before. we have conquered crime. we had down on the mat and we have let it up for air and now we are all paying the price. jeremy hunt served in the military and now ivy league school going for masters. ainsley: is he from georgia. brian: the suburbs of georgia he said this when we talked to him about how buck head is so fed up from the lack of support from the major city of atlanta they want to spin out on their own and handle their own. have their taxpayer dollars go
4:12 am
to their own police force. listen to what he said about that. >> there is a crisis of failed leadership, brian. i mean, if you look at the city of atlanta, the leadership there, this is not just some random covid crime wave as the mayor likes to say. this is what happens when you fail to support the people, the people, the men and women who defend the city, the police officers who keep the city safe. this is what happens when morale gets low because they don't trust the mayor will defend them. there have been 368 shootings just this year, brian. in the city of atlanta. it's so real and a lot of people are very afraid, obviously, and so they are doing whatever they can to try to come up with creative solutions to defend their communities. dr. pete: good for buck head they will probably have tons of applications to work in a police department actually emboldened to protect the community as opposed to atlanta or other inner city police departments. ainsley: buck head was always such a safe place and malls around the buck head area were
4:13 am
so fun to visit if you are a woman i guess that doesn't appeal to y'all. when we were in south carolina we would drive over. atlanta was a big city it was so fun to go to. now you have to be very careful. brian: be i like mall walking. pete: do you? there is a lot of that in minnesota. ainsley: a lot of that in every mall, right? mall shopping is the best because you don't have to get. if it's raining outside you hit all your favorite stores after the once. brian: right. other people that sit on atlanta and order amazon retail. ainsley: that has gotten really easy. brian: amazon full time at my truck full time truck sits there. it's incredible what's going on and my daughter caitlin doesn't even use her last name madonna. it just comes in caitlin. i have no idea how she does that they don't ask. here is caitlin again. cher. it's still 13 manipulates after the hour. only wasted 20 seconds. talk about what's happening with our money when it comes to the pandemic. i don't know how president biden was able to do this and they sued donald trump every time he
4:14 am
tried to do this. shifting money from covid over to the border crisis but not to solve it but to deal with the amount of illegals that need care when they come over. pete: is this an acknowledgment that open border was also partially a covid crisis as well letting in people probably not the intended reason but your point is totally correct. now we can shift money to our own priorities but donald trump was evil when he did it for the wall. ainsley: some people we can't afford them all. we need more money. where can we get it this is bloomberg. bloomberg reported this that biden, this is what biden said. the u.s. department of health and human services plans to reallocate 860 million of funds appropriated to the national institutes of health to cover an increase in pandemic related costs associated with undocumented children at the border. biden administration official said that the need for the pandemic-related precautions such as testing and quarantining has added at least 1.7 with in costs to the program. brian: 1745 cases of covid at
4:15 am
our southern border facilities as well. and they still want to get rid of title 42. pete: um-huh. brian: that says don't come in. we are in the middle of a pandemic. pete: those things exist? brian: i don't know. just get a total pass. the interesting thing the biden administration is doing they don't want to talk about it only talk about happy things. don't talk about happy things. ainsley: no russia hacking. brian: please, i was in a good mood. don't ask about the border crisis we want $1,860,000,000 will a crisis we don't call a crisis. pete: that we created. ainsley: mark brnovich weighed in on this attorney general from arizona. >> 2 million people expected to cross illegally whether cartels enriching themselves. we are at a crisis. we have already reached that point. the fact now that they are going to rescind that i think going to be throwing more fuel, more gasoline ton a fire that's burning. i think it's dangerous for our country. really i think it exposes the inconsistency of the biden administration when it comes to public health because on the one
4:16 am
hand they say they are so worried about covid but they are packing people into these, you know, detention centers. and at the same time they are creating a situation to allow more and more people to come in regardless of the health consequences. brian: i think he is running for higher office. he has been very aggressive on this. pete: now, why might the biden administration be so focused on this issue all the time using covid and talking about covid even as we are moving past it and we should be looking at, i don't know, inflation, crime, and open border. victor davis hanson as he often does was on ingraham last night and revealed here's why. >> crime, inflation, the border, critical race theory, race relations, china, polls, democratic polls insider democratic polls show that biden is not pulling 50%. that should tell us something. the only one he is on covid and that's because he just inherited the trump operation warp speed, didn't touch it, plain rised it
4:17 am
as his own and had he done thoob the other issues, we had a secure border, he would have been okay. and then the three things that he is trying to use in lieu of being popular on the issues is, are what? that he is not donald trump? i think people look at his cognitive issues, his challenges and thinking, you know, i prefer him not -- i'm more scared of a president being joe biden than being donald trump. ainsley: he is right. brian: 100 percent. ainsley: if he had gone to the beach as donald trump said and left the border the way it was, we wouldn't see an increase like we are seeing now. pete: the amazing rebranding of operation warp speed is something that they did. brian: right. by the way go ahead. ainsley: if he had just taken credit look. brian: like he did with covid. ainsley: exactly. if he had said look, we are so grateful to the last administration for the vaccines, i'm going to continue to roll them out, it's just -- there is so many division if they would just support one another, i think americans would really appreciate it. brian: it would diffuse so much
4:18 am
tension. operation warp speed set us up for a successful vaccination program when it came to what's going on at the border i don't feel comfortable reversing nil of these policies that seem to be effect tia right now and add in humanitarian change whatever you want to use. it pooh woo have made the barbecues on everybody's house including the hegseth household a little bit less tense. ainsley: not as much violence. people are so angry at each other. 57% say biden not fully executing the duties of the president. 58% of those were independents and one third were democrats. brian: that's true. somebody never been angry carley shimkus never angry. carley: not angry. did you hear the knock knock? it could be the biden administration they are launching a new door-to-door campaign to encourage americans to get vaccinated. this after the administration fell short of it july 4th goal

♪ pete: welcome back. it's been less than a week since u.s. troops left bagram air base now afghan troops are fleeing across the country. new video shows afghan soldiers surrendering their american made weapons to the taliban as the islamist group expands its control. here is insight is retired navy seal and the man who killed usama bin laden rob o'neill.
4:26 am
the image is stark. stock pails of weapons troops surrendering. how bad is it and how much worse could it get? >> it's going to get worse. we're leaving stuff behind because that's kind of what we do when we leave. we can't take everything with us the soldiers and marines did their best to destroy a lot of stuff. unfortunately they get it. i have seen it before when we got out taliban actually taking pictures and sending them to us of guys on treadmills and just to tell you a little bit about them. the guy on the treadmill was trying to figure out a way to eat it. they got a lot of stuff. they do know how to weapons. unfortunately with 20 years there we left stuff behind they are going to get their hans on it and a lot of afghans aren't going to fight for it throw their weapons down and run for the border. pete: it is ultimately about power. it's always jarring to see m-4s and squad automatic weapons in the hands of the enemy after they were supposed to go to afghan allies to defend their own country.
4:27 am
right now, according to the long war journal the taliban control is 193 districts in the country. 130 of them are contested and only 75 under afghan government control. you trained a lot with the special operations force, the afghan national army. are there elements of the afghan army that will stay and fight to try to defend even the capital of kabul? >> yes there are elements that will stay and fight. i have worked a lot of them there are some gray guys there some of the best i have met in afghanistan. unfortunately that's not all of them. a lot of the soldiers knew we would pay them we paid people there a lot of them seen it as a propped up government. we will train guys god will i wasn't supposed to come they wouldn't they would leave for days at a time. they were there for paycheck, free uniform and free gun. most of them for good reach are afraid of the taliban and simply not going to fight. they want to protect their families. some of them will just flee. the ones that fight, god bless them. but, unfortunately they are in afghanistan. they don't like propped up
4:28 am
government. they need the support of the locals. and they have short memories. the taliban are coming back in and lying and saying we are going to give them we know what's going to happen put the women and children back in the corners. not let anyone get educated full beards it's not going to be good for them. pete: what's it going to mean for afghan security if the army dissipate. >> kabul falling is going to' harassment the problem is bagram fall left bagram. we should have kept that. it self-support it's not a black and white' issue. >> we don't either need to be in and control afghanistan. we need an air base there for a lot of reasons, strategic reasons, russia north. china is out there. iran is right there. we have a foot hold. and also when the convoy especially madrasas on pakistan border when isis and the taliban come rolling in we can bomb them. now we can't. we have air cavity carriers refueling jets from a carrier to fly across is not realistic.
4:29 am
we can defend afghanistan. we have a hospital there. we can support the jets and we can even do convoys and refuel jets flying over resupport. it was a big mistake to get rid of bagram and bagram cannot control the 650 troops that are left in the embassy it's going to be a mess trying to get out. which we are going to need to get out. don't have nothing to say but wait until china rolls in. pete: talk about someone who understands power projection from the united states of america. lose that foot hold. it's gone. rob o'neill, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you, pete. pete: still ahead, crime is so severe in san francisco, brazen thieves ransacking this neiman marcus as other major retailers are closing early over similar incidents. a san francisco resident reacts next. ♪

the sting of inflation it's creeping up and now food and beverage providers are warning that their prices could rise significantly. over the past year food prices have already increased by 2.2%, the price of gasoline has more than doubled, 50% since last year, so what do you need to know to cover all these ex mexicos? joining us is personal finance expert dan ricotta. thanks for coming all the way from california. everyone is worried about inflation. what are we seeing going up the most? >> what we're seeing is the basics. food, energy, so gas prices up more than 50% over the last year , food prices up just over 2 %, and what we're seeing really is that spike is especially hurting those folks on a fixed income, ainsley. mom and dad, the retirees, the grandparents and that's where it really stings. ainsley: what's causing inflation? >> well a couple things, demand is up, you and i and others are out there shopping so there's more demand but the supply chain hasn't kept up, so demand is up,
4:54 am
supply not so much, prices are up. and the federal reserve bank keeps those interest rates low and that's just adding more fuel to the fire. ainsley: it's good in some cases others it's not. >> correct. ainsley: so what do you tell the folks watching that are on fixed incomes and planning for retirement what are the dues >> first of all if you're the last person on earth who has not refinanced your mortgage, do it now. the rates are never going to be lower. you could save a couple hundred bucks a month on the average mortgage let's get that done now so being lower class in that long term low rate. change your portfolio around. if you have an investment portfolio, 401 (k), you know, you're lucky enough to get while you were working, change it around. use things like inflation protected bonds, and what i want you to do is think about retiring but in stages. maybe not all at once. maybe work part time, maybe delay retirement to keep that income coming into get you through this period. ainsley: what are the don'ts? >> well you don't want to lock up your long term savings. if you're retired and you've got savings probably don't want to put it into a long term cd.
4:55 am
the rates are terrible. if you wait you might get a better rate. if you have variable debt, credit card debt, the rate changes around let's try to get rid of that that's no good going into a high potentially higher inflation environment an don't panic. let's keep our eye on that long term goal that we have. don't forget social security gets adjusted every year so we're likely to see a better adjustment come january as well. ainsley: what's the average income for an american family? >> the american household income is about 55 grand on average, but the retirees, the average social security check is only about $1,500, and that doesn't go very far every month, so that's why the retirees are really feeling this pinch right now. ainsley: what do most of your customers say what are their biggest concerns right now? >> no question inflation is on everyone's mind the expectation is it's going to go higher and that creates a vicious cycle as well. other than that, low interest rates for savers is a huge concern, your parents, our parents who are retired, they just can't get , earn any money

5:02 am
they've rescued 15 people, nine are still missing and it's not clear what those people were doing in the water off of key west. this is now a tropical storm. it was briefly a category 1 hurricane, it's about 35 miles off the coast, just north of here near cedar key. sustained winds of about 65 miles per hour so we should see landfall the next couple of hours. the real danger from this storm for the entire state of florida has been the rain. some areas getting eight inches and it covers a wide section of the state. there's real concern about storm surge up to five feet, and the impact of flooding has meant schools are closed, colleges closed, government offices closed, some airports closed, we have not seen mandatory evacuations, but 30 counties overall have declared a state of emergency. 60 national guard deployed, 3,000 power workers deployed, 15,000 people have lost power, where the storm goes next will crossover the northern section of florida, then into georgia, where they are already flood flood warnings along that coast. ainsley, guys back to you. brian: thanks, appreciate it,

5:04 am
heavy rainfall so that's why we have our flood advisory in effect and still going to feel hurricane force winds as the trajectory brings it into the southeast coast, so we'll continue to monitor this. it doesn't take a hurricane to cause a lot of damage to some of these vulnerable coastlines so we'll keep you up-to-date. brian, i'm going to start with you, ainsley and pete. brian: thanks for the multiple talks. not easy. pete: well, the white house did not hit their covid-19 vaccination level. ainsley: they wanted 70%. pete: they didn't get there by the 4th of july so now trying new things. brian i know when the door bell rings at your house it's someone selling encyclopedias, someone selling girl scout cookies or an amazon package going to just the first name -- pete: katie. pete: now it has a fourth option , what did ronald regan say the nine most dangerous world's in the english language are, i'm from the government and i'm here to help? you might have that at your door because joe biden is saying not enough americans getting

vaccinated, now we have to go door-to-door. watch. >> so please get vaccinated now it works. it's free. its never been easier and its never been more important. do it now, for yourself and the people you care about. for your neighborhood, for your country. it sounds corny but it's a patriotic thing to do. we are continuing to wind-down the mass vaccination sites that did so much in the spring to rapidly vaccinate those eager to get the first and second shot for that matter if they needed a second. now, we need to go community-by- community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus. brian: draft emmanuel, dr. emmanuel, who always seems to be angry, i'd like to say a mandate is legal and effective

ultimately workplaces are probably going to have to mandate the vaccine for us to get past that 70% threshold wouldn't that be nice? ainsley: dan crenshaw tweeted out about how about don't knock-on my door. you're not my parents, you're the government. make the vaccine available and let people be free to choose. why is that concept so hard for the left? dr. sapphire we had her on earlier and she was saying that the vaccine education is a conversation you have with your doctor. you make the decision with your doctor whether or not you want to be vaccinated instead of hear ing this at your door and saying i have a shot ready to go in your arm. brian: plus they have to start saying if you had it already and still have the antibodies, you don't need it. that's a fact. they just don't want to ever acknowledge it. dr. fauci leads the charge. he acts like no one has the antibodies. that test should be as common as the covid test. ainsley: if you add up the people who have had the shot , with the people who have the antibodies, we probably are well past that. brian: we're leading the world,
5:07 am
we're leading the world. pete: we are. and why are people who are vaccinated so concerned about the portions that are not. the point of the vaccination is you're good. and everyone else whose old enough and can read and can listen to all of the psa's out there, i love when politicians g ravel like that. that's what you should do, fine, it's my choice, but going door-to-door, i don't feel like that's very efficient. ainsley: whose going to answer the door? the elderly have to come to the door, the kids come to the door because i'm not used to on long island i'm not used to people showing up at my door. my friends we call, we meet somewhere, they come over but i know they are coming but this lady rolls up into my driveway and i'm like who is this person? it's a little scary. pete: is the person coming to my door vaccinated? ainsley: and that's true, you're right. brian: good point. dr. marc siegel weighed in.
5:08 am
yup, hed pete: here he comes. >> i don't think we have to allow biden to bang on our door with a syringe that says here is a vaccine. it brings home a more important point who is it you should have the conversation with about whether to have the vaccine or not? who? your physician. someone like me, a primary care person who can tell you the risk s and the benefits. the risks of the virus, the benefits of the vaccine, the risks of the vaccine, i do that in my office every single day. president biden doesn't know how to do that and his minions should not be doing that. ainsley: also are they going to track you if you haven't gotten the shot yet are they coming to your door? pete: do they know or is it an inefficient process. brian: by the way sports gave up on that they had the vaccinated, unvaccinated, now you just got 100,000 people there. pete: you can go to yankee stadium if you're not vaccinated now? brian: absolutely. pete: when did they lift that?
5:09 am
brian: i think it's open season just go. pete: makes sense to me. brian: you know, go sell it out in europe, i think the stadium holds 153,000, at this point, if there's 53,000, what are you worried about? pete: it's the ones that benefit from the holdout that are still holding out, like we've covered this american federation of teachers conference that's happening right now. it's virtual so the teachers are still virtual with their conference, yet the nba finals and the major league baseball, they got full stadiums happening right now. brian: because you know why the teachers want to do that? they want to keep that in their arsenal they could still decide not to go into school and can't say well you went to your conference. pete: meanwhile nine minutes after the top of the hour we have another fox news alert, three chicago law enforcement officers are reportedly shot this happening within the last hour. the chicago tribune reporting at least one officer was taken to the hospital, but none of the injuries are believed, thank goodness, to be life threatening we're monitoring the situation and we'll bring you new

information as we get it. ainsley: i mean, look at this. pete: three cops shot in the last hour. ainsley: horrible, god bless them and i hope everything is going to be okay. that is horrible news. we're seeing crime going up everywhere. new york, chicago, atlanta, san francisco, portland, cities in florida, cities in texas now, pretty much all over the country and when jen psaki was asked about it, why is crime going up, this was her reason. >> we've seen rates go up over the last 18 months around the country, including in the city of chicago. we see spikes in violent crime typically during summer months often unfortunately during holiday weekends and we saw that over the last weekend, but i will say that he will continue to advocate for and the mayor may want to discuss this i guess we'll see or not, but increases in his budget including an additional $300 million more for the cops program that is then what i would say was approved in the prior trump adminitration budget. brian: so they are still trying
5:11 am
to get across that they are tougher on crime than the previous administration and more pro-cop. not a chance. 33% of the country approve of your stance when it comes to crime and punishment and los angeles too, la times just came in via e-mail. they have the last 12, they have 12 dead on july 4 alone, homicides are up 25% and she's saying it's related to the weather. pete: this is effectively the suns out gun guns out explanation. the suns out, gotta pull the gun s out. and not, you know, kilmeade's 3g about -- brian: 33-34. pete: okay. brian: but i would say this , i think that they wanted to blame it on lack of summer jobs. people don't shoot for recreation or because they're board. crime is because there's a lack of law enforcement, there's fewer cops, there's fewer people backing cops, and it's the only way that there's communication from city to city to city that if you're on your own. ainsley: i think it's division
5:12 am
too, when president biden was elected he kept saying i'm going to unify and bring republicans and democrats together, people of all races together, so much fighting right now in our country. we saw that with the rioting people are mad, people have had, you know, dealt with covid and then we're seeing defund the police. now we don't have cops that want to do their jobs because they are too scared they get sued or do something wrong and it's going to be a huge news story and they will lose everything, so i think it's all of that combined. pete: we're seeing defund the police movement with jen psaki having the audacity to say the democrats are the ones that want to fund the cops more. you can't make it up. brian: richard greenburg is a san francisco resident, he liens right so he doesn't have a shot in a left wing community and they saw car break-ins up 700% and almost every category crime is going through the roof and it's impossible to live in san francisco. the only thing they have in common is everybody wants to leave after they screwed it up. here he weighed in on life in
5:13 am
san francisco right now. >> it's up to the city council, the board of supervisors to decide how many police are actually on the street walking the beat, so this has led to a drastic drop in morale. there's just not enough police, part of the whole defunding police movement so this is a far left wing governed city. there's virtually no conservative, even centrist candidates that really win especially on the city council, our board of supervisors. this city is controlled completely by left wing idealogs brian: sounds terrible why would you live there? ainsley: we saw the video of nieman marcus broad daylight people just running out of nieman marcus with merchandise in their arms, look at this. brian: can you imagine closing your store because you know you'll get robbed if you stay open? pete: because if you steal less than $900 in san francisco it's a petty crime and you're immediately released. ainsley: no one is getting prosecuted we saw that with the rioting. dan bongino talks about how
5:14 am
dangerous that is. listen. >> broken windows policing with the exact opposite. you prosecute the little crimes i've given this example a thousand times. when you get him for the larceny for stealing, you know, lipstick out of a cvs or whatever they steal it's the same person who goes down the street and breaks into a house. it's the same guy. if you left the little stuff go it festers like a cancerous tumor into the bigger stuff. they know this. these liberals they aren't stupid. believe me, nothing would please me more than to tell you how dumb they are. they aren't stupid they are deliberately doing this causing this chaos in liberal cities on purpose because they aren't stupid and they know exactly what they are doing. brian: they overplayed their hand and they will find that and there's some panic on the left about 2022 because crime is one of the number one issues in this country among more families than anything else it's affect ing everyone, not just people from the inner city but
5:15 am
into the sub you'res you're see ing it on a daily basis, if you talk to policemen and women, they know they've been that and many are looking to get out and you combine all that and they are looking at a disaster come mid-term elections and i think that's why this is more than a little bit of a problem. much like what's happening on a global perspective when it comes to ransomware. we saw a massive attack over the weekend where up to 1,500 businesses across the country affected by the latest attack all because a software firm in miami was hacked and so effectively, we believe it's coming from russia, not the state government, but affiliate renegade groups there, they are asking $70 million to undo the damage. ainsley: i hope they aren't getting this ransom money, but we saw it with colonial pipeline and the beef plant now we're se. a few days ago joe biden was asked whose responsible? is this russia and he said we're not sure we're not sure, right. he looked at his notes and they said they told me we're not sure
5:16 am
and then he was asked about it yesterday and he didn't answer the question. does that mean he knows russia is behind it or he doesn't know anything? i don't know but here is the sound bite. >> mr. president, on the latest ransomware attack, can you tell us if you believe that rises to the level of u.s. retaliation? >> i can tell you a couple things. i received an update from a national security team this morning. it appears to have caused minimal damage to u.s. businesses but we're still gathering information to the full extent of the attack and i'll have more to say about this in the next several days. we're getting more detail and information but that's what i can tell you now, and i feel good about our ability. >> is putin testing you, sir? ainsley: is putin testing you? pete: i feel good about our ability to -- walk away. ainsley: he didn't answer the question. pete: unbelievable is putin testing you?
5:17 am
i'll go back to the dan bongino sound we just played on crime. they are not stupid. they know exactly what they are doing, that applies to russia and also the biden administration. they know whose behind this. the evidence is out there that likely it points to russia. we'll see. they have more access obviously than we do in open source but they are choosing not to respond , or choosing to minimize it, for whatever reason , certainly looks small after the meeting they had where they said don't do that anymore. ainsley: look at china. we need to find out the origins of this so that it doesn't happen again. look at this with russia. we need to find out if russia is responsible for this so that we can slap them with sanctions or do whatever we need to do, so that it doesn't happen again. he calls it a minimal problem right now. what happens when it's a maximum problem? brian: this is a major problem. tell it to sweden, netherlands all hit and hurt because they subscribe to this miami-based software. i don't know company, but here is the thing, with this software company on their list of things not to hit because he gave them a list of 16, i want you to, you could punch me, i just have 16
5:18 am
places on my body i don't want to get punches. pete: [laughter] brian: so we can see what happens it's the most ridiculous thing ever and we have to have a cyber team ready to go and offensive capability. we have to list the companies that are involved and actually intertwined with our infrastructure, so we are working with private industry to make sure their cyber defenses are up because it affects all of us on a daily basis. ainsley: if you own a company protect yourself because the governments not going to do it. pete: they also tried to hack the rnc. brian: they weren't successful. you can go for my ankles. ainsley: just not his deltoids. carlie is behind you and she has some headlines for us. >> you guys were just talking about the crime wave we have another tragedy on our hands a 20-year-old college student is killed by a stray bullet in

get it on the street. pete: we went from mangling the state's covid response to now a gun violence emergency. new york governor cuomo facing backlash after declaring a statewide gun violence emergency in response to the surge in violent crime. here to react, to national vice president of the fraternal order of police, joe gamaldi. joe thanks so much for being here. how are you feeling about the state of emergency declared on gun violence in new york? >> well, you know, i find it kind of interesting, because just a week ago, congressman cortez said that they didn't have a problem with crime in new york. this was all hysteria and we were just massaging the statistics so i'm wondering when they get on the same page but i'm glad someone is finally acknowledging the violent crime epidemic going on in our country because we have been raising concerns since 2019 but nowhere in the governor's plan did he actually address what's driving our violent crime and that is prosecutors and activist judges letting out violent criminals over and over and over again. a recent study out of chicago
5:27 am
said that the people actually pulling the trigger, the gang members, ones that are actually taking the shots have been arrested an average of 12 times prior to that, so maybe, just maybe, if we actually prosecuted violent criminals we be able to get our crime rate down. this ain't rocket science. pete: you know, jen psaki even made an acknowledgment by accident when she said we're funding the police with $300 billion more. their attempt to play jujitsu on that issue pretending like they are the ones supporting the police, are you buying that? >> no i'm not buying that this is textbook gaslighting. the same day she made that announcement we had the oakland city council defund their police by $18 million when their homicide rate was up by 87% and that was a democrat controlled city council and we know whose defunding the police in this country and it's having dire consequences. over the weekend we had 554 people shot, 189 murdered, 30
5:28 am
children were shot in this country over the weekend. 30, including we also had four police officers that were shot, and this is just a microcosm of what's going on. last year we had over 20,000 homicides in the united states which we haven't since the mid- 90s. this historic crime wave is the greatest crisis facing our country right now, but the good news is, we can fix it if we absolutely restore the rule of law, which means don't let the rioters and looters go and not even file charges on them. if we actually prosecute violent criminals don't let them out over and over again, and embrace broken windows theories, no letting people walk out of the store with garbage bags full of cosmetic which is has caused walgreens to close 17 stores. we can restore order in this country. pete: we can, but they won't, because they are too behold en to radical employeements inside their party. you mentioned law enforcement officers shot, children shot, three this morning in chicago out there doing their job with

5:35 am
distorting history and threatening educators for teaching the truth is what is truly radical and wrong. brian: what an embarrassment she is to the country and teachers. she was saying i'm not teaching critical race theory, in k-12 she'll defend teachers that teach critical race theory. douglas murray here to make sense. douglas, do you understand what she's saying? >> well, i can understand what she's trying to do, what she's trying to do as you just mentioned is to do one thing and say another to encourage critical race theory in american schools, while pretending that it's not a problem, while pretending that it's all being made up by the people she calls culture warriors. who are her idea of culture warriors? this term she used, she applies to american parents and others who just don't want racially divisive material taught in their classrooms. she calls these people, these parents and others culture
5:36 am
warriors now. so she's trying to turn this whole thing around. sheas the one whose being a culture warrior on it. she's fighting incredibly hard for critical race theory. she's going to fight very hard, she boasts, for her union members who teach critical race theory. i just wish she never fought half as hard for american students who missed so much of their education in the last year and prioritized them, but that's clearly not her priority. brian: right she kept the teachers out of the classroom and then called the cdc to make sure they wouldn't force the teachers to go back in the classroom and they took some of her recommendations verbatim because we saw the e-mails. number two she started that speech by saying we do not teach it. now she says i will support any teacher that teaches it. legally we have money. what do you mean when she says i don't want to distort history. we will not do that. she is mixing everything up. >> the aim is so clear, and i
5:37 am
think that the device couldn't be clearer in some ways at the moment. nobody, i think, is against the idea of having an honest appraisal of history. the thing that a lot of people are now against, a lot of american parents is they are against the dishonest appraisal of american history being given by the crt crowd. it's not about, you know, fail ing to teach slavery or anything like that. the american school kids learn about this. it's about trying to stop, this is what parents are so worried about, trying to stop their children being told that america was a racist country dome nateed by white supremacist s and the whole system has been about white supremacy. that's what a lot of parents don't like. there used to be a story of american history that was bold and brave and and encouraging and something that people looked up to. now you can contest that but that's not what crt people are doing. they just are flipping it the other way around saying it's

nichols, and this is all come out of a tape that was made over a year ago, when she was inside the nba bubble, did not know her home camera there in the hotel room was on, and had a conversation about being replaced by maria taylor, a black woman, and said the reason why she was losing her job bass aways of espn's issues with diversity implying quite clearly that maria taylor was getting her job, because of the color of maria taylor's skin and what's ironic about this is rachel nichols has always been super woke publicly. she praised the nba over the disastrous decision to move the all-star game out of charlotte, north carolina over a transgender bathroom bill. she's lectured the rest of the american sporting public for a long time about diversity and inclusion issues, but then behind closed doors, suddenly, she appears to be something that she has claimed not to be, and/ or the hypocrisy finally reveals itself, which is, as you guys know, many of these super

5:46 am
competing as a female weight lifter. if you were going to make a choice, i think everybody out there listening, would you rather have a woman sprinter who smoked pot competing or would you rather have a biological man competing as a woman in weight lifting, and the olympics is getting this way wrong and allowing all of the drugs that change your gender and not allowing non-performance enhanc ing casual drugs that maybe legal in many states to be consumed i think it's absolutely ridiculous. brian: it's unbelievable if she had a couple of beers it wouldn't have been a problem. >> no doubt. brian: and half the country allows it, and the thing is, right now, i'm surprised u.s. track and field hasn't stepped in and gone to bat for her. >> yeah, look. i understand there are people out there who say the rules are the rules. ever since i got my law degree, i've been sitting around saying well that's the worst argument of all-time. the rules are stupid. this is a stupid rule, but to me if you're going to allow men to
