3:01 am
there? brian: also the music is appropriate too. ainsley: it's country? brian: and? our last guest is going to close the show. i think it's also important to point out that ainsley lived there for a while. unlike what she did yesterday, adopting my area as her hometown, you have not said my state of texas. ainsley: it depends on the story we are talking about. because i have lived in texas. i have lived in massachusetts and i have lived in new york. brian: just adopted and rolled. ainsley: everyone adopted me when i moved to texas they made me a part of texas. resident there, paid taxes there they welcomed me. texas is so fun. two things i love to have fun. [laughter] and i love god. brian: you are pro-fun. ainsley: i am pro-fun and love god. both of those big part of texas. will: both of those make you unique in the state of texas. who else loves texas and happens to be in texas is our lawrence jones who is having breakfast with friends in fort worth cpac.

3:03 am
bit lower on the eyebrows. there you go. now look at me. oh, that's what i'm talking about. that's it. [laughter] will: that's the look right there. brian: do you have to go a saloon when you have that hat on. will: clearly not he is at the pancake. lawrence: this is regular wear. ainsley: lawrence, coming up in the show i want to hear about your mom i heard you talking about "fox & friends first." they said she looks like your sister. lawrence: we grew up together so there you go. she is pretty young. she is a beautiful lady. she has made my dad a happy man. ainsley: that's so sweet. she did a great job with you. we will check back in with you later. brian: go collect some cattle. ainsley: collect? will. brian: collect or wrangle. can we look that up? anyone from texas here? ainsley: we will ask dana perino she was making fun of someone on the channel. brian: dana is not up yet.
3:04 am
wrestle the buffalo. brian: she has a problem with my lingo. they are going to knock on your door and demand you take it and give you a third shot. these are some of the things banging around in washington about you and taking this vaccine. it's unbelievable how offensive this administration is getting with a pandemic that is clearly on the run. we are doing better than any other country. basically almost 60% to 70% of this country has taken two shots that are adults in america. get this, administration is panicking and they are infiltrating our lives. ainsley: the hhs secretary xavier becerra says it is the government's priority. the government does have the right to find out if you are or are not vaccinated. brian: really? ainsley: listen to. >> this the federal government has spent trillions of dollars to try to keep americans alive during this pandemic, so it is absolutely the government's business. woe want to give people a sense
3:05 am
that they have the freedom to choose. but we hope they choose to live. we hope people make the right choices. we want them to have the right information. but, we are america. we try to give people as much freedom and choice as possible. but, clearly, when over 600,000 americans have died, the best choice is to get vaccinated. brian: and she eventually talkss about but we don't know how that ends. will: he says it's the government's job to find out who is and is not. now they are in clean up mode. he tweeted some comments i made today taken wildly out of context. to be clear the government has no database tracking who is vaccinated. encouraging people to step up to protect themselves and others by being vaccinated. it's best way to save lives and end this pandemic. ainsley: they are saying natural immunity if you have had covid. maybe they will when they get tested for antibodies and not found in their blood anymore.
3:06 am
56% of the americans, of the adult population are fully vaccinated. 57% have received at least one shot. a big percentage of people that aren't getting the vaccine that did have covid. states that tend to vote republican have lower vaccination rates and polls show that republican voters are less likely to receive the vaccine than the democrats. brian: couple things. he said that in the same day. he said that had to quickly walk that back. number two, they are thinking about a third shot for a delta variant which our vaccines seems as though perfectly capable of stopping. in fact, one doctor warned overreaction to the delta variant. she went on to say there's no evidence the delta variant is more deadly for any individual who becomes infected. and what happens is if you find -- if you do test positive currently now with the vaccines that we have out there, the symptoms are so low you beat it. and, keep in mind, nobody ever talks about and certainly anthony fauci never brings up the fact that people who have had it have natural immunity.
3:07 am
antibody tests as common as covid-19. they should be considered vaccinated. and when you start looking at some of the people that have had negative reactions instead of running from it or condemn people that bring it up, we would feel better about taking it. will: what's happened is the conversation, and this has been going on for quite some time, and now the policy following the conversation is that the vaccine is 100 percent appropriate forker single person in this society whether or not you have had covid and the numbers you give us, ainsley, are pretty staggering when you factor in how many people have had covid where are we on this chart of herd immunity not people that have conditions or legitimate concerns about whether the vaccine is right for them. when you are talking about going door to door. you are not talking about just persuasion. you are talking about a real pressure, a push. brian: haranguing. will: this is right for you. have you done it? have you injected this experimental vaccine in your arm because it's right for everybody they are saying. now this, brian, you are talking about. it's not right for protecting
3:08 am
you indefinitely into the future. what comes next? "tucker carlson today," his fox nation show, he talks to evolutionary biology weinstein has a podcast dark horse podcast. he has been asking questions from the beginning about whether or not the vaccine is right for everyone. for that, by the way, youtube has almost at this point, almost kicked him off. we talked about where we go from here, what's the future. as brian mentioned, a third booster shot? what's next for us? here's what he told tucker. >> is there a long-term plan? >> not as far as i can tell, unless the long-term plan is more or less a series of updated booster shots, which i think most people have not understood may be in the offing. in general, young people tolerate covid very well. >> tucker: yeah. >> to vaccinate them for epidemiological reasons, to protect those most vulnerable is
3:09 am
really to take health from young people in order to give it to older people. for example, people who have had covid, those people have effectively been vaccinated by the disease itself and their immunity is likely to be much broader than that created by these technologically remarkable vaccines. ainsley: then he shares that he has been censored on social media for sharing his concerns about the vaccine and, tucker asked him about standing up to the mob. they called it the mop. he said there is very little to gain in standing up against such a mob because the mob does have tremendous power to ruin your livelihood, damage your reputation, and it doesn't take very much or a whole lot of signaling that you're on their side to get them to move on to the next person. brian: what the government doesn't understand and every administration makes a mistake we have a vote in this when you run from the swelling of the heart. when you run from people partially paralyzed on with laura ingraham last night you say there is nothing to see
3:10 am
here. we are looking. we're going to adjust our behavior. and you are not going to force us to do stuff. you are going to get backlash. also, if you actually think people are laying out on this because they don't trust for president biden and voted for president trump. maybe president biden could bring up the fact that warp speed was created under donald trump. and then it was implemented under president biden after averaging about a million shots a day. that would maybe get people on the right that might be not taking it for political reasons to decelerate and say wait a second maybe i should reconsider this. he does not want to do it. he does not want to give any credit to the previous administration for anything. ainsley: i think a lot of it, we talked to a doctor yesterday, dr. nesheiwat, she says a lot of the patient she is seeing it's not because they don't know where to get vaccinated which was biden's argument for the door-to-door thing. she said people haven't had the time to do it. they are going to get vaccinated. most of her patients say they will. they just haven't had the time. the problem is do you trust the federal government when one minute they're saying it's our
3:11 am
business to know if you are vaccinated and next minute is saying i didn't mean that you are taking those comments out of context? will: absolutely. we will talk more about this throughout the morning. for now president biden is accelerating the u.s. says from afghanistan and plans to combat -- plans to end combat there by the end of next month. we have a live report on the ground in afghanistan next. brian: and michael avenatti stardom over big time sentenced to serve two and a half years behind bar. remember what the media had to say about him. >> like the holy. >> you are all places at all times. >> look at the 2020 one reason why i'm taking you seriously as a contender because of your presence on cable news. brian: more of the gushing and now disgraced attorney tearful apology coming up. ♪ nothing but a good time ♪ how can i resist ♪ it's nothing but a y for what i need.

♪ carley: back with your headlines starting with a fox news alert. a manhunt underway after four prisoners escaped a jail in illinois. the fulton county sheriff's office say three of the men have been caught after extensive air and ground search but one is still on the run. zachery hart is considered armed and dangerous. if you see him, police say, do not approach him and call 911 immediately. a live look in cape maine, new jersey as tropical storm elsa heads towards the northeast. the entire coast now bracing for impact. new york city already suffering major flooding from thunderstorms yesterday. this subway station flooded with waist deep water creating chaos for commuters. flooding highways leaving several cars stranded.
3:17 am
more severe weather is expected as elsa moves in promising a messy morning commute. the storm packing winds of up to 50 miles per hour with heavy rain. new york governor andrew cuomo touts his own growth from the pandemic. take a listen. >> very few people were going through what we went through. and speaking for myself, it was a tremendous personal benefit. carley: he made the comment in a speech to fellow governors. it comes after he scored a $5.1 million deal for his memoir about his handling of the pandemic despite being under investigation -- investigation for underreporting covid deaths in nursing homes. tom brady gives a warning ahead of tampa bay lightning stanley cup victory parade. the cup's official page tweeted at brady and buc's teammate ron

gronk it's too heavy to throw and catch. the impossible lombardi trophy during the buc's super bowl parade. he admitted to having one too many tequila drinks during that celebration. he tweeted none everything feels a little lighter after some at this quillla. those are the headlines. >> i didn't see tequila on the diet. ainsley: if you do drink at this we'll la and vodka a few wines. i have just been reading a lot about it i do feel so much better. he says if he wants to eat pizza he will eat pizza the best pizza ever. it is very rare he does that he doesn't deny himself. carley: love it. brian: little tubes of electrolytes. can you have any flavor. my arm is so much better now and i feel like i can evade tacklers
3:19 am
like i never could before. meanwhile 18 minutes after the hour. will: i was already thinking you were the great of all time fully withdraw from afghanistan. ainsley: now set for august 31st instead of september 11th. brian: greg palkot joins us live from kabul with more as troubling now new data shows the taliban is making serious gains, probably right as we speak. >> absolutely. hi, folks. yeah, we have been on the ground for just a couple hours here in kabul and we can feel the tension of the taliban offensive. military at that particular time officials for the group claim today they control 85% of the country. that is an exaggeration but they certainly are on the move. for example they just seized a very important border crossing between afghanistan and iran. here's a bit of what we saw and heard today. >> kabul 2021 is a relatively modern bustling city. but there are fears here about
3:20 am
the taliban and concerns about the loss of u.s. support. >> in our country, everybody, every second, every minute we are in fear. we live in fear. >> you live in fear. >> yeah. we live in fear. >> before we had experience people, before [inaudible] now there are more than before. >> this is something that happened suddenly in afghanistan because of the withdrawal of the u.s. troops. >> in fact, we heard from a lot of people upset about the rapid withdrawal of u.s. troops. president biden defending that and also saying is he clear-eyed about the taliban. take a listen. >> do you trust the taliban, mr? do you trust the taliban, sir? >> you -- is that a serious question? >> absolutely a serious question. do you trust the taliban. >> that's a silly question. do i trust the taliban? no. but i trust the capacity of the afghan military. >> the hitch with that, too, guys is the afghan military
3:21 am
hasn't been doing too well either. they have been surrendering and fleeing and were trained by the u.s. and other nato forces. a bit of a mess here now. back to you. brian: can you imagine the fear there, greg. you have been there so many times throughout the last 20 years. appreciate it. ainsley: greg, many of us don't know what's happening there because we don't live there u. brought that to life. that's pretty scary. great job. brian: he went on to say one of the great quotes from joe biden yesterday. obviously the same joe biden chairman of foreign relations felt the sameway, the same joe biden vice president felt the same way. no doubt about it he actually contradicted by all reports every one of his advisers in pulling out as precipitously as he did. those who say donald trump put it in motion. since when has joe biden had a problem reversing any one of donald trump's policies. i think he list for it day one signed 26 executive orders to stop it. as lindsey graham said he doesn't understand the conditions existing in afghanistan. this isn't about afghanistan.
3:22 am
this is about do you want an american base in the middle of all our enemies, china, russia, and iran? do you want to lose influence there? and do you want to leave a country that clearly welcomes our presence at a time in which we were in a supporting role, not an offensive role, which just demanded 2500 troops. they said they would have come under fire. i'm pretty convinced our military men and women would have gradually understood that the turnover would take place but we are gaining from the location in which we built in kabul and in kabul and bagram. will: really quickly, brian. i ask this out of pure curiosity. would your contention that we maintain a presence afghanistan indefinitely in the future like we have in places like korea or germany? brian: that's a great question. do you know what my answer is? how long do you want to avoid al qaeda and isis attacking here? the taliban is not a danger here. so how long do you think that china having access to the
3:23 am
railroads while we didn't. how long that they most of it. how long does that work for us as long as we use computers we will need some that they have. what we should have done stopped pakistan from building up the taliban, forcing our troops to even suffer casualties that they shouldn't have. ainsley: and jen psaki said we have not met our mission. this is not a mission accomplished moment. it's been 20 years of a war. it has not been won militarily. but then biden came back and struck that down. he said the u.s. has accomplished its goal in preventing future attacks from al qaeda and killing usama bin laden. you heard the people on the street there. two things come out of that. they are scared now that we are leaving and how wonderful is our military? they are protecting all of those innocent victims innocent individuals now fearing for their livelihood. will: coming up later in the show we will talk to former secretary of state mike pompeo about this very issue that's 8:00 eastern time. meanwhile, we need to get to this. michael avenatti, you remember michael avenatti he was sentenced to what was final sentencing yesterday? ainsley: two and a half years.
3:24 am
will: two and a half years for a conviction or a guilty plea of extorting nike from. ainsley: for $25 million. will: $25 million in his statement yesterday before the court, avenatti said the following: i betrayed my profession. driven by things that didn't matter to my life. i often asked to myself why did this need to happen i have learned all the fame notoriety in the world mean nothing. everyone wants to rise in a limo with you but very few will to sit with you on the bus few are willing to take your calls from prison. brian: no kidding. ainsley: you don't want to sit on the bus with him because he has just been convicted of lying and he betrayed his client. the judge said he betrayed his client. he was representing a small basketball team. a youth basketball team and nike dropped them. then he threw them under the bus and extorting nike saying i will go public, i will hold a press conference and tell them what you have done and i will do that before your quarter earnings
3:25 am
call. will: unless you pay me. hire me. ainsley: may me $25 million. that's why people don't want to ride on the bus with you. that's why people don't want to visit new prison because of they don't trust you. brian: i hope he is safe with that mask on. a short time ago and wolf blitzer co-hosting with michael avenatti basically a permanent fixture on "the view." he was a fixture everywhere except here. remember this. >> you got lucky tonight. we're back with attorney michael avenatti. he is a main player. >> sitting beside me right now, i'm not going to let you cheat. you have to guess. a hint. his name is michael avenatti. [laughter] >> look, i think you are doing a hell of a job. i don't think you are in this for money. >> to me you are like the holy -- you are all places at all times. >> he is out there saving the country. >> is he a rock star, i think. it will be interesting to see his next chapter. >> absolutely. >> michael avenatti for president in 2020. >> is he donald trump's worst nightmare, michael avenatti. >> existential threat to the
3:26 am
trump presidency, please welcome attorney michael avenatti. >> looking into 2020 one reason why i'm taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news. i wrote about this saying you are currently leading the pact among 2020 contenders on the democratic side. >> what do democrats value most? if they decide they value a fighter most, people would be foolish to under estimate michael avenatti. >> michael avenatti is a beast. >> okay that's true he is a beast. >> he is a beast and keeps popping donald trump and all of his folks in the mouth repeatedly. he's a beast. will: it is so fascinating not just the way he was embraced but the way he was elevated. underscores a final, simple point no lie needed to go untold and no villain needed to decline being embraced. they were going to do whatever it takes for the simple path of taking down donald trump. that's all it was about. ainsley: even said he was a legitimate candidate to go against donald trump in 2020.
3:27 am
brian: feel the awards of people he won cases for like stormy daniels took $300,000 from a porn star. it's unbelievable the lack of ethics and how everyone was to blind to him and was captured by his charisma and fake tan. hard to maintain in prison. ainsley: the judge says he was drunk on power. he fell really fast. it's 6:27 here on the east coast. coming up next, authorities in los angeles county seizing $1 billion in illegal marijuana. as officials warn their county is turning into the wild, wild west amid the threat of drug cartels. former acting dhs secretary chad wolf is here to react next. ♪

will: police in georgia arrest a man they say is responsible for shooting and killing golf pro-gene siler and two other men. ainsley: ashley strohmier joins us live on this case. evan is talking about that in georgia and now we are talking on the national news. >> right. police are not revealing much into the investigation into the triple murder that took place on a georgia golf course. but they have arrested
3:32 am
23-year-old brian roden, cobb county police say he surrendered yesterday. is he now faces three counts of murder. three counts of aggravated assault and two counts of kidnapping. >> the arrest in this case was due to the tireless investigative efforts of the men and women of the cobb county police department. we literally had detectives that have worked around the clock and some have literally slept in their offices since july 3rd. >> roden is accused of gunning down 46-year-old golf pro-gene siler on the green of the 10th hole. police say siler was shot in the head because he just happened to stumbling on to a crime taking place. those who knew him are headquarter the husband and father of two. two other men found shot to death in the back of this white pickup truck you are seeing on your screen that was abandon on the golf course. that truck belonged to one of those victims. police are not saying anything about possible motives and the murders were held. roden was apparently tied to them. police didn't specify details about the two counts of
3:33 am
kidnapping either. but say more charges could be coming. so far there is no word on any funeral arrangements for gene siler. brian? brian: thanks so much, ashley. 28 minutes now before the top of the hour. let's talk immigration. southern california authorities cracking down on drugs seizing 18 tons of marijuana in what is being called the largest marijuana bust in los angeles sheriff's department history. >> estimated street value of this entire operation was $1.19 billion. what we want to do is send a clear and loud message to the cartels and anyone doing illegal operation in the high dessert. your days are over and we're coming for you. brian: here now is acting dhs secretary chad wolf. chad, first off, if marijuana is legal in most of these states and people are getting licenses, why are they growing it illegally? >> well, i think what this is telling you, brian, that the crisis that we have on the border is not just about illegal migrants coming across. it's also about illegal narcotics. left of center the illegal
3:34 am
contraband that they are funneling across that border. so, every day that the crisis goes on, every day that we're facing these historic numbers along that border, we have got to think about the criminal element and criminal activity that goes along with that this is just one twample. but we see illegal narcotics up across the border. not only with individual states like california, texas are finding, but also, what federal authorities are finding as well. brian: unbelievable there is a few other things going on at the border. that is with these minors, unaccompanied minors, they are being housed in military bases. we don't really hear much about this exleaks say they are psychologically traumatized don't know when they are getting out. stark conditions. having psychological breakdowns. chad, compare that and some of the falling children over the wall and some of these unaccompanied minors that we have seen walking aimlessly, compare that coverage to the coverage you guys to the. >> well, absolutely. i would just say it's night and day. obviously we had a crisis in 2009, where we have had a lot of
3:35 am
families as well as a lot of minors coming across. we had to house them and care for them as well. the media coverage that we had at the time was night and at a to what you see today as well. but what we were trying to do in 2019, we were actually putting policies in place that stopped the flow, which is very different than what you see today. we have policies by the biden administration that are encouraging more and more families and minors to come across that border today and that's what you see. you see historic numbers. you see the system breaking and you see more and more facilities having to come online to care for those individuals. but, the lack of media coverage that these facilities have and the number of kids that are in custody today, minors that are in custody today have far outstripped what we saw back in 2019. brian: billions have to redirect from pandemic aid to help these illegal immigrants here might be fine people but it's the american people first i thought. and the other thing is, you guys are transparent. you were telling us this is failing. you said we could come and watch and take pictures and you would be available for interviews.
3:36 am
these guys are running for the hills. they don't want to talk about it, which is incredible. now tom cotton says they have a -- they are going to put something in the budget from massive amnesty for this upcoming year for almost everybody that's been here so people should look out for that and ready to fight for that tonight, cpac, one of the things you will do is participate in a panel called can cancel culture be canceled. i remember for new particular people didn't like your policies, so they were protesting at your house. >> right. well, that's exactly right, plain. we had -- we dealt with a variety of different things over the trump administration, including trying to be canceled ourselves. a lot of the cabinet members and a lot of the other officials and i had folks outside of my house protesting almost on a weekly basis. but that's fine. look, what we were doing was for the american people at the end of the day. and the vast majority of americans agreed with what we were doing and policies and particularly when we talk about the border. the results speak for themselves. we had a secure border in 2019 and 2020 with the policies that
3:37 am
we put in place. so i'm happy to be here in dallas. happy to be at cpac to talk about the great work that we did. the challenges that we have going forward. and what are the right policies to tackle those challenges? brian: it wasn't broke and they broke it and that's what you are going to be talking about today. secretary wolf, thanks so much. >> all right. thank you. brian: can you washington secretary wolf's cpac panel live this weekend along with speeches by former president donald j. trump and many others go to fox nation got come to sign up and see cpac live today through sunday. meanwhile, speaking of cpac, lawrence jones is gearing up for this weekend. but, first, he's having breakfast with friends in fort worth, texas. lawrence? lawrence: what's up, brother? back here in texas at old south, look at this. this is what we do with -- look at that come and take -- come and take my pancakes bro. i have some food right here. omelets, just little custard. biscuits and gravy. we got so much coming on "fox &

3:44 am
kindness, the friendliness of the people of fort worth was what was differentiated. this card says you receive this card because you are friendly. keep it up and pass the friendly card to someone who is friendly like you. then we just passed the anniversary of the assassination of the five officers in dallas. and so we developed this card to hand out to police officers. it says thank you for being who you are and doing what you do. you are appreciated. lawrence: thank you, brother. as you guys know, that was the deadliest police assassination in american history on american soil. one more person i want y'all to talk. to say george, you say you are fired up about the schools. what's your concern? >> my concern is how we came, they have changed all of that. they are trying to teaching our young people supposed to be.
3:45 am
that's the parents' job to do that. may concern is the teaches, i think they are more concerned in forming their unions and not really paying attention what the parents want for the kids. i think the parents need to start a new organization called parent students association. get away from the parent teachers association. lawrence: get rid of the pta and start a new organization. >> yeah. put parents and students together. lawrence: that's the sentiment i have been hearing in texas. they are fired up about that guys. we will be talking with folks all morning leading into cpac. as you know i will be speaking at cpac on saturday. until then, we will be talking with some friends. they are nice here in texas, guys. will: watch lawrence's speech on fox nation along with speeches by former president trump and many others. go to fox and sign up and stream cpac live today through sunday. lawrence, always judges me, kind of when we are in the building here because i wear jordans and
3:46 am
i can see the passing judgment in his eyes. i want to get a better look at his cowboy boots so i can judge him. brian: really? two can play this game in. will: exactly right. the kind of leather he is wearing and identify the brand. brian: he had that swagger since he got enterprise reporter. just like when we gave janice dean i ultimately signed off on it senior meteorologist. right? janice: you did. you signed it, too. brian: i know it's a little bit of change. janice: i get in to discount movies with the senior title. [laughter] janice: and i love that they love ainsley. isn't that cute? ainsley is our favorite. ainsley: buy judy breakfast on me. i will pay him back. janice: very nice. she is good for that deal. you always buy breakfast. brian, not so much. they are telling me to do the weather because we have elsa coming up the east coast bringing the potential for heavy rainfall and strong winds. we have tropical storm warnings from atlantic city all the way up to boston.
3:47 am
so winds in excess of 40 miles per hour. flood advisories are posted here. we could -- several inches of rain in a very short period of time. bottom line is we are not done yet it will be out of the way by later this afternoon. severe threat for the midwest this has nothing to do with the tropical storm. large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. >> and then we also have very heavy rainfall across south texas. we haven't been focused on that story. but it is a story. it's not a tropical storm. it doesn't take a tropical storm to bring tremendous amount of rainfall. and flash flooding to some of these areas. so we'll keep you up to date on all of the above. brian and will and ainsley, back to you. brian: thank you very much. will: across the way with carley shimkus for headlines. carley: good morning, guys. we begin with this. families mourning the locals of loved ones in the florida condo collapse as crews search through the rubble for 76 people who are still missing. >> the miami-dade fire department will not stop working until they have gotten to the bottom of the pile and recovered

4:05 am
government absolutely has a right to know who is and is not vaccinated. here's what he had to say yesterday that he has since begun to reel back. in first, his afferents. >> the federal government has had to spend trillions of dollars to try to keep millions of lives during this pandemic it is the government's business. we want to give people the sense that they have the freedom to choose. we hope to choose to live. we hope people make the right choices. we want them to have the right information. we are america. we try to give people as much freedom and choice as possible. but, clearly, when over 600,000 americans have died, the best choice is to get vaccinated. will: when everyone hears their saying we want to give people the sense to have the freedom to choose and the government definitely has the right to know whether or not you are vaccinated. what's your reaction? >> well, listen, i think that's the wrong approach, especially right now in the pandemic with mixed messages that have been coming out of washington lately on a lot of things, including
4:06 am
the vaccines. you know, i think the people that haven't gotten vaccinated just don't have a lot of trust in the government. and i certainly understand that what i have been telling people is we don't need a government mandate. we need people to talk to your doctor. talk to the folks at your hospital. ask them, you know, of covid patients that are coming in now, are they vaccinated or not? do you think the vaccine is helping? ask your doctor that. ask your local pharmacy that ask your family members that have been vaccinated. or your faith leaders or other people. we don't need, you know, a tyrant in government that's going to go around and do this. that scares people. i think it personally runs them off from trusting the vaccine. so that's my message back to them. ainsley: especially when he changes his tune. originally he is saying it's absolutely the government's business, and then he tweeted out later in the day yesterday afternoon, some comments i made today are being taken wildly out of context. to be clear, government has no database tracking who is
4:07 am
vaccinated. we're encouraging people to accept up to protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated. it's the best way to save lives and end this pandemic. is that why you think people don't trust the government? they say one thing, we know what they actually mean but then they correct it later? >> no doubt about it lots of mixed messages out there. we're not going to be tracking anybody in the state of georgia. you know, my home family has been vaccinated. i feel very comfortable with that but that's an individual choice, especially for the people that are left that have not been vaccinated. they have got to get comfortable making that america decision for themselves. and i believe they can do that if they will simply take a few minutes and talk to their medical professionals. brian: i don't start giving medical advice all of the sudden i say i got vaccinated you can take from that what you want. it's up to you. i might choose to go cliff diving. i don't want people telling me i can't. dr. jonathan reiner has a different take on that, governor. listen to this.
4:08 am
>> i do think it's time to start mandating vaccines. and i think that private industry and private organizations will do that 75 million adults have chosen not to get vaccinated. and that choice has consequences. now, we can't force you to take a jab in the arm, but there are many jobs, perhaps, that can prevent you from working if you decide not to get vaccinated. brian: you comfortable with that? >> no. listen. that's a decision that i believe individuals need to make, private employers need to make. i don't always agree with those decisions, but i have always been consistent. we don't need the government mandating these things on a person or a private business. i have been a small business owner for 35 years. i don't want the government telling me, you know, whether i need to vaccinate my employees or not. i just don't think we need to be in that business. i think if you see that happen, you are going to see people revolt, you know, like they have been doing on airplanes on
4:09 am
whether to wear a mask now or or not and people are fighting over that i can't imagine what it would be like if we start doing something like that with vaccines. brian: k through 12 get vaccinated there will be a war there will i will i hope you will forgive me for a bit of a windup. i have been watching a documentary on edward benet godfather of propaganda and p.r. control people's choices through manipulation and propaganda. vaccine effort part of that push to control what choices we make. it's also how you push a message. vice president kamala harris suggested democrats are going to invest $25 million in painting republican laws like your georgia law to increase voter integrity as voter suppression. this is a full-on push, a propaganda push. and you know this very well because it's been somewhat successful, a push to characterize your law, i want you to listen to vice president kamala harris very quickly on this new push. >> in 2020, you were heard,
4:10 am
america. you were heard loud and clear. but, there is another side to this story. so far this year 17 state legislative legislation lay temperatures enacted 28 new laws that will make it harder for americans to vote. these bills now, be clear -- these bills have already become law. they are now on the books. this all is designed, i believe, to make it harder for you to vote so that you don't vote. will: make it harder for you to vote, call it voter suppression. call it racist. governor, you a propaganda war. how do you win this? >> hey, we got to fight like hell. that's what i have been telling people. we had the truth on our side. now the vice president is lying like the president has been about georgia's law. we actually add the amount of days that people can vote early on the weekends in the state of
4:11 am
georgia. we have got many more opportunities for people to vote early than president biden's own state of delaware and a lot of other states where the democrats are in control. they are just not being truthful to people. and, listen, this is just part of their playbook. their legislation failed at congress to have a federal takeover of elections, which is unconstitutional. now they had the department of justice, when we have, you know, violent crime, killings in major cities all over the country, a crisis at the border, and the fight they are picking is suing us over our elections integrity act. they realize now after the arizona ruling that's not going to work. now they are moving to the democratic party at the national level trying to spend $25 million to cancel us. my message is, look, we are going to stand up and fight. we have the truth on our side. but you need to be aware they are going to try to cancel you. they are going to try to boycott your business, move your ballgame just like they did the all-star game game in georgia.
4:12 am
they are going to come after your way of life. this isn't a fight just in georgia. this is a nationwide fight. it is one worth fighting. and that is what i'm going to continue to do. will: propaganda worked. it influenced major league baseball to pull their game as you mentioned out of georgia and part of that tight back clearly is you guys have put together an ad slamming major league baseball for that decision. let's take a look at the ad really quickly. >> this week we should be celebrating baseball. instead, stacey abrams and the liberal mob forced the all-star game to move despite the fact we made it easier to vote. ainsley: so, governor, we want to talk about crime which san issue that i know your folks are really worried about, atlanta area especially and then right outside of atlanta kennesaw, georgia. the golf pro-was killed on the golf course and i know someone who lives on that golf course and he says the golf pro-actually lives there he has two little kids. there is a memorial for him. crime is going up everywhere. how do you -- how, as governor,
4:13 am
can you combat this? >> well, first of all, our thoughts and prayers go out to the siler family. i mean, that is just a tragic event, wrong place at the wrong time to a good man and a great family and we'll continue to have them in our prayers. i appreciate the cobb county police department chief cox for getting this terrible person off the streets to protect all georgians and other people arranged the country. but, look, this is happening in major cities. number one, because we don't have the democrats supporting local law enforcement and standing shoulder to shoulder and behind them to back them up. putting boots on the ground works. i got so fed up with this almost three months ago now i asked colonel wright with the georgia state patrol to come up with a plan to help us assist the atlanta police department. they are working with their hands tied behind their back but they are doing everything they can to support us. we have made a lot of headway going after street racers. violent criminallers. the speaker ralston georgia
4:14 am
general assembly holding hearings to see what else we can do. not only support law enforcement but go after as a state these individuals when local governments won't do that we also passed a bill this year to keep rogue local governments from defunding the police. we have got stand with our law enforcement personnel and take the fight to these individuals and show them that we are not going to put up with this. we also have to hold those bad actors accountable, which we should do and that's exactly what we're going to do in georgia. brian: that's so typical it seems like states are at war with their own cities. how do you feel about buck head spinning out and trying to get their independence from atlanta and have their own police force? are you supporting that? >> well, i certainly, you know, going to be an interesting fight there, if you will. the studies are going on now. there is a group that's very passionate about that. there is a lot of things to consider there which i certainly will do and see where the
4:15 am
legislature ends up on that. but the fact of the matter is i understand why they are doing it they are fed up. i mean, just two nights ago there was somebody that was literally blocked from the governor's mansion in the heart of buck head doing home invasions. i was -- had breakfast with a group the other day at an establishment up the street from the governor's mansion. they have armed security guards, two of them, in the parking lots. they have had so many cars broken into and stolen and other things. i mean, people are fed up. they are outraged. but, even worse, they are scared and they want something done. and i think they are sending that message to the mayor and the city of atlanta that they demand that and that's what the campaign for the mayor's race this year is going to be about in the city of atlanta. ainsley: we also want to ask you about tropical storm elsa. i know that 10 were injured in georgia at a navy base. what he was the latest on that? >> yeah, we got -- listen, we had just a really spotty storm that hit king's bay down there.
4:16 am
thankfully no one had loss of life as of yet. there is one critically injured person. the rest of them were, i think, fairly minor injuries, which is a blessing and our prayers go out to all of those that have been affected not only here but in the state of florida as well. but, we have got a lot of state resources down there helping clearing roads, the power companies have made great headway getting power restored. and all in all, compared to what happened in florida, we got very lucky the other night in georgia. but we have a lot of folks on the ground responding as we speak. will: governor brian kemp of georgia. we appreciate your time and perspective this morning. ainsley: thank you, governor. >> thanks guys have a great day. brian: a lot on his plate. will: head over to carley. carley: we update on story we have been following. police take man in custody for drive by shooting for shooting of undercover law enforcement agency eugene mcloren confessed to shooting two aff agents and chicago police officer. he reportedly mistook the agents

had. >> taliban takeover of afghanistan now inevitable? >> no, it is not. >> why? >> because you have the afghan troops have 300,000 well-equipped, as well as equipped as any army in the world. brian: really? is that the truth? president biden defending his decision to remove u.s. operations in afghanistan next month after 20 years of fighting. but, top military and intelligence officials are sounding the alarm taliban gains are extraordinary already retired four star general jack keane. general, i wish i was sitting next to you during that press conference since i have you now. what do you think about what he just said specifically first about they are the most well-armed army in the world? >> well, that's certainly not the case at all. listen, they -- we have trained
4:25 am
them. there was -- they topped out at 300,000. they have less than be that now. with u.s. air support and the afghan security ground forces, they are capable of dealing with the taliban. they don't have sufficient capability to defeat them but the taliban also cannot overthrow them. and that's a fact. and that's why that situation was stalemated. you pull out u.s. air power, they tonight have an air force like we have, they have some black hawk helicopters and c-130s but not the precision fighters that we have. you have take that away from that ground force there. and it becomes vulnerable to the taliban. and you are already combining to see that evolve and it's something that we have predicted would actually happen from a military perspective. brian: so i'm going to can you this question. he asked yesterday at the press conference. joe biden, let me ask you those who want who stay how many
4:26 am
more -- how many more thousands of americans, daughters and sons are you willing to risk? i will not send another generation of americans to war in afghanistan with no reasonable expectation of achieving a different outcome. general, what would you say to him? >> yeah, see, he doesn't see this as part of the multigenerational struggle against radical islam. this is where it began for us. and it hasn't gone away. in fact, over the 20 years, i think the united states policy makers, whether they were democrats or republicans, has evolved over those two decades. i think it's pretty mature and sophisticated. what am i talking about? there is 40 or 50 radical islamic movements going on in the world. five have aspirations to attack america. that's the primary focus iraq, syria, yemen, east africa. i believe and as does our military and intelligence people believe that afghanistan is number 5. it's part of a multigenerational
4:27 am
war against radical islam. why? because al qaeda and isis are already there. taliban takes over. there's no absolutely no doubt in our mind that there will be a significantly resurgence. even if there is a civil war as there was in syria, that enabled isis to grow in syria because of the chaos of the civil war. that can happen also in afghanistan. so, many of us believe as a guarantor, that that is not going to happen. a very modest presence of troops in afghanistan can ensure that. just as we are using modest troop presence in those other four countries that i mentioned. brian: also, you mentioned, too it's located right between china, russia and iran who by the way wish us nothing but harm. speaking of that pentagon is now warning that the world is moving closer to a nuclear war because suddenly russia and china are modernizing and developing new nuclear missiles, bombers and submarines. does this come as a surprise to you and do you agree with that assessment? >> yeah, i actually do agree with the assessment. and certainly the trump
4:28 am
administration had huge amount of concerns here. they wanted to get into negotiations with the russians over this. they were negotiating new new start.russians had developet of the strategic nuclear agreement. but the biden administration came in and just signed off on it without those negotiations over the new conditions. the second thing is, we need to bring china in because russia and china are modernizing their nuclear arsenals. the trump administration tried to do that. and were unsuccessful on it. biden has got to get that to the top of his priority list. nuclear proliferation and nuclear arms race. we can't go back to that and so there is concerns about the developing nations that are actually rogue states like north korea, their arsenal is increasing, their ballistic missile program is increasing. we all know that the mullahs in iran want. they want a nuclear weapon. they have got ballistic missiles
4:29 am
already. and this is potentially the most dangerous situation that we have. iran with a nuclear weapon will get an arms race in the middle east. all the arabs will have it and the potential for nuclear exchange there for the first time in history is very, very real. brian: absolutely. explain that to the american people and they will get on board. don't put it in extraneous articles in the "the washington post" that no one understands and then you just won a big payoff. thank you so much general keane for breaking it down for us. appreciate it. >> have a great weekend, folks. brian: you got it lawrence jones is getting ready for cpac this weekend. but, first, he's having breakfast with friends. he's contractually obligated as enterprise reporter in fort worth, texas. lawrence? lawrence: hey, brian. i'm with friends here. and so they are putting me to work here. got a lot coming up on the show. be talking to folks all morning. i'm going to pour some coffee because that's what they told me to do ♪ roll my window down ♪ ♪ baby a song make me want to

>> we should point out that the federal government has had to spend trillions of dollars to keep americans alive during this pandemic so it is absolutely the government's business. it is taxpayers' business if we have to continue to spend money to try to keep people from contracting covid. knocking on a door has never been against the law. you don't have to answer, but we hope you do because, if you haven't been vaccinated, we can help dispel some of those rumors that you've heard and hopefully get you vaccinated. will: that was health and human services secretary xavier becerra defending the biden administration's door-to-door vaccination push going as far as to say it's absolutely the government's business to know americans' vaccination status. here to react is former white house physician dr. ronny jackson. thank you so much for being with us. you know, look, it's the government's business to know whether or not you are vaccinated? let's make a door-to-door push? you combine this with recent
4:45 am
comments and pushes to have private businesses mandate vaccines. what's the role of the government and for that matter private businesses in dictating the health decisions of americans? >> well, absolutely, will, not the goal of the government or the job of the government shouldn't be the goal of the government to mandate whether or not we get this vaccine. let's not lose track ever the big picture picture. i got the vaccine. i looked at the risk benefit and got the vaccine. other people should be a personal choice for every single american. let's not lose sight of the fact that this is still experimental vaccine being used under emergency use authorization. the federal government does not have the right to tell americans they have to get this vaccine and none of their business who has had it and who hasn't had it. it's another government overreach that fits right in the narrative that the democrats do everything else. socialist marxist communist way they want to control your lives. i'm absolutely opposed to that. will: yeah, you made it personal, congressman, risk reward analysis for your own health, your own cost benefit
4:46 am
analysis. it doesn't make you anti-vaxer for saying other people should be able to go through the same cost benefit analysis. by the way basara clarified his comments. some comments i made today taken wildly out of context to be clear the government doesn't have database tracking. we are encouraging people to step up to protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated. best way to save lives and end this pandemic. this pressure, congressman, it's not just a cycle but seems to be never ending trail we are headed down because pfizer is now seeking a new authorization for a third covid-19 vaccine dose saying it could boost protection against, of course, the delta variant. okay. is this a yearly thing? new variant? new boosters, year after year, this is the pressure, this is the push. this is how we stay healthy? >> that's the wish we don't know yet. shouldn't be making recommendation third shot until we know the answers. quite honestly, will, i'm not comfortable with the pharmaceutical companies and the
4:47 am
company manufactured the vaccine decide that we need the fda, the nih, cdc, other independent academic institutions to do the research and studies and find out how long we are immune after we get the two shots. and all indications early on is that we might have lifetime immunity from this. i do not want the people that profit the most from making in vaccine to decide whether or not we are needing boosters. i don't think that's a good way to go. there is a lot of problems with that i don't see any evidence right now a a booster or third shot is needed. i doubt we will really see that. will: that profit you mention there that's not highlighted enough how big a business come big pharma who has complete liability protection as well. so, congressman, doctor, you have titles, i don't know which one takes presence dense here py jackson you are speaking today at cpac. what do we expect to hear from you? >> well, we are going to talk today a little bit about who is really running things in the white house. i think that's a big question. i will probably hit a bit on
4:48 am
some of the cognitive issues that we are seeing with president biden. but that's going to be a part of what is going on behind the scenes in the white house. who is pulling the strings and who is really making the decisions. we will talk about that and then tomorrow we are going to talk about the culture and how we can become advocates and how we can get out there as conservatives and really make a difference in this midterm election and train ourselves as conservative activists since we will have a discussion about that strategy for that. will: i want to hear that i think the culture is definitely where everything is -- the battleground where everything is being fought. we will be listening. >> absolutely. will: thank you so much for your time this morning. >> thank you, will. appreciate it. will: let's check in with senior meteorologist janice dean who has our fox weather forecast. hi, janice. janice: pouring rain in new york city. tropical storm elsa 15 mile-per-hour sustained winds. still bringing rain and wind all along the northeast coast. the i-95 corridor not a great morning for traveling in, i'm afraid. good thing we don't have any

it's accelerated, we're going to be totally out of afghanistan august 31. do you like the way we're leaving, do you agree with the decision? >> we were working really hard, brian, to do two things. one was to get our young men and women home. we were on the way to doing that and second was to making sure america was safe and secure in the region not just in afghanistan, but from al qaeda and isis, everywhere so we worked on it. we took down the caliphate. this is not a singular problem in afghanistan. we took down the caliphate in syria, we did great ct operations in southeast asia, and then we made real progress in securing our capacity to understand what al qaeda was doing in afghanistan. there were, brian, fewer than 200 al qaeda left in afghanistan , the day we left office, this was an enormous success. it's time to get our folks home. we've got to watch for al qaeda and the rise of radical islamic terrorism everywhere. there is still thousands yemen, the fight is not going away but time to reduce our force posture
5:08 am
in afghanistan and make sure our global ct footprint was exactly right. brian: to zero? >> to zero in afghanistan, brian, i doubt it actually gets to zero. there will still be some residual forces on the ground to tok preserve our capacity to have an embassy there but we have to make sure we have the force posture right and i know there's folks worried about taliban and resurgence. the taliban are one of the ethnic folks there, it's many different people in afghanistan, the afghans need to step forward, they need to get this right. we provided billions and billion s of dollars in resources to do that. we were prepared to continue spending some of that money to help them with the institutional capabilities and their military capabilities, but our kids, our young men and women, it was time to bring them back home, brian. ainsley: it's an interesting story kind of very scary story out that the pentagon is just released says it's saying we're moving closer to a nuclear war, with our enemies and they name russia, china and north korea and iran.
5:09 am
how serious is this? >> so actually i read this report very carefully yesterday, ainsley. most of it was very well done. there were a few things i thought they had wrong but the point is well taken. the united states is one of the only nations that refused for so long to modernize its nuclear capabilities and to make sure its nuclear strategies were right. we reversed what the obama administration was doing. i've been pleased so far the biden team has allowed a particular set of nuclear modernization programs to continue to go forward and congress has funded it. i think it's a really good thing if you go through the list of names you just identified, ainsley, those were the countries if you look at the file that i had on behalf of president trump, iran, north korea, china, russia, all nuclear powers, we were very focused on this issue of proliferation, and making sure we had the right strategy, the right military strategy, the right diplomatic strategy and certainly the right nuclear force posture so that we could deter those very adversaries that you listed there. will: i've heard you mention the term force posture several times when it comes to withdraw
5:10 am
ing troops from afghanistan. brian asks us if that leaves us in a position to continue to influence that area as other world powers rise like china and russia. ainsley talking about them ris ing even to the level of advanced nuclear capability and then there's this. there is jacqui heinrich, pressing jen psaki on russia's role in ransomware attacks. let's take a quick listen and i'll ask you my question on the other side. >> in the conversation with russia about enforcing this red line that the president drew at the summit, what concrete acts have we made of russia in terms of cracking down on actors that are within that state and clearly are attacking us? >> sure i would say the president hasn't minced words and should he speak with president putin again he will convey the same message which is we, if you do not take action to crackdown on criminal actors in your country, even if the government didn't know, we will. we reserve that option to, and that continues to be his clear
5:11 am
message. will: reports are they are going to bring up climb all change with russia but back to this force posture thing though, mr. secretary. so, you think it is the right posture to take in afghanistan to withdraw troops. we have this worry about nuclear capabilities with some of our greatest adversaries and we see these ransomware attacks. what is the right posture to be taking when it comes to these global adversaries? >> well you began the question with this issue of cyber risk to the united states of america. we took this seriously when the bad guys whether it was north korea or russians attacked us we responded, we had begun to establish a model for deterrence. it doesn't bear that president biden is going to live up to the promises he made a few weeks ago in geneva. i hope i'm wrong about that and the united states responded these massive ransomware attacks on the united states. this is dangerous and only going to get worse. we know what happens when red lines are violated and the united states doesn't pushback against the promises its made. we've got to do that.
5:12 am
more broadly, our posture has to be to make sure that we're prepared to challenge the chinese communist party in the entire region that it plays. that's everywhere today so that was the aim that we had begun to build-out. we've made enormous progress in uniting the world against this threat. this is the serious challenge to the united states for the next five or 10 or 15 years. got to be ready to do it. we increased the defense budget every year in an aim to do just that, to fight this great power challenge. brian: mr. secretary, then how do you make a complete circle? why would it be our best interest to allow china to have influence in afghanistan, and access to their rare earth materials, which the other place that has the rare earth to provide all of our computers, is china itself. so we pulled out and lost all of that influence and the location right between iran, russia, and china. how is that in america's best interest, after we put billions into those bases? >> well, brian, i don't think
5:13 am
we're abandoning the region at all. we've supported lots of countries in the region. we've developed close relationships with the indians, we worked hard with pakistan to deter some of their worst behaviors as well. brian: they're the worst. >> the other point about the region is exactly right. i second your motion. we worked hard with the central asian countries, kazakhstan, all of them, these were an important part of what the trump adminitration was doing and it didn't get much attention but i spent a lot of time working with those countries to build-out a capacity for the united states to have influence in that very region you're describing. afghanistan does sit in a particularly important place, we're not abandoning them, there will still be tens of billions of dollars flowing to afghanistan in 2022 and 2023 that may well be appropriate, and as for rare earth i promise you the trump adminitration was working diligent. we had a plan to make sure that we would have access to the rare earth materials that we needed. i hope that this administration will continue to move down that path. ainsley: mr. secretary, thank you so much for coming on with
5:14 am

5:16 am
booking the driver for not having valid insurance, and for driving without a license. usually, when a cop knocks on a door and says is there a sherry here or whoever it is, it's not because they are trying to deliver the food. brian: absolutely. >> i'm sure she breathed a big sigh of relief. brian: people throw their pot plants out the window, quick there's a cop at the front door. ainsley: i'm just delivering your hamburger. brian: thanks, carlie. ainsley: still ahead caitlyn jenner is joining a lawsuit over california governor gavin newsom 's recall, what she's fighting for after the break. brian: plus, michael avanati is over as he's sentenced to two and a half years behind bars but remember what the media had to say about him then? >> they are like the holy spirit. >> [laughter] >> all places, at all times. >> looking ahead to 2020, one reason why i'm taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news. brian: remember that, matt and mercedes schlapp were not among

brian: california gubernatorial hopeful caitlyn jenner joining a lawsuit to stop governor gavin newsom from having the word democrat added next to his name, after newsom claims a filing error removed his party affiliation from the ballots of this upcoming recall. why is that in a left-leaning state? joining us is california gubernatorial candidate former olympic gold medalist caitlyn jenner. why is that important? >> well i'm joining in on his
5:22 am
lawsuit as a intervening party. the reason it's important, gavin newsom keeps changing the rules. he's like a dictated or out here, changes when the recall election is going to take place, how the ballots work, he's doing everything to try to get it in his favor, but i entered this lawsuit because in 2019, he put in a new law sawing that you could put your party affiliation in on your recall ballot, so when his lawyers put his application in, they forgot to put down his party affiliation, so it wasn't realized for months and all of a sudden he realized wait a second, i didn't put down my party affiliation, i want to change it so he went to the secretary of state, shirley web er, and said i want to change it and she said no.
5:23 am
so we personally sued her and i'm entering into that lawsuit. why, because i want transparency i don't want shirley weber, our secretary of state, to cave to the pressure of gavin newsom to keep, you know, he didn't fill out his application right. the fight for california starts now, if we got to do it in the courts, wherever we have gavin newsom has been the worst governor this state has ever had brian: so far, pick-up the la times this morning where it gets sent to me and it says california, you don't need a recall. vaccinations are going good, cases are way down, gdp is going up, they are creating jobs and they have a surplus of $76 billion. what's the problem in california they forgot everything else, but maybe you want to refresh their memory. >> well, honestly, gavin newsom has done the worst job when it comes to shutting our state down over the last year. as you know, different governors have done it different ways, and
5:24 am
he's a great example is disney world in orlando opened up over a year ago, last july. out here in disneyland opened up just like two months ago, okay? just to california residents. he shut our state down. he shut our schools down. our kids were deprived of a year of education, and it didn't have to be that way. he used coronavirus out here and this pandemic as a political tool, to shut the state down. people are not going to forget that. of course now that he's in this recall, and actually just changed the date so now it's going to be september 14, in this recall, he's trying to look like he's the greatest governor of all-time, and the people of california are not going to forget that. he's been a disaster on so many levels. its just been horrible, and there's no common sense in
5:25 am
california when it comes to government, and we need somebody to come in there with some common sense to be able to run this state. brian: so your other area of expertise is sports, olympics especially, tokyo is not going to have any fans which is definitely going to affect things and change what we see but we're kind of used to that after this pandemic year thanks to china, but now the u.s. olympic committee is getting a letter from house republicans. they're concerned about americans embarrassing us on the podium by protesting and violating ioc rules. are you worried about the same thing? >> well, you're talking about our hammer thrower mostly, and i don't think we have to worry about her because she's not that good. the girl actually who won that event is phenomenonally good. she will be on the podium, we don't have to worry about that but i've been around the olympics obviously for a long time. i was the first one in 1972. i loved my country.
5:26 am
i'm so proud to be an american, i was the first one ever to put a flag up at the finish line, so i've been a patriot for a long time, and i don't like using the olympic games as a political tool. i was in the village in 1972, when the terrorists came in and took the israeli athletes. we lost 11 athletes that day. i don't like that. i think the olympic games has the greatest potential for good in the world. it's the largest gathering of countries in the world. there's over 200 countries there there's only a little over 150 countries in the u.n. it has so much potential for good. i don't like people today in this society that we're living into use the one great thing we have, to bring the world together, the olympics, and use it as a political tool. i don't think it's right, and i think the international olympic committee, the united states olympic committee should do everything they can to stop it. brian: it be another
5:27 am
embarrassment on the world stage and i think these republicans are worried about it and let's keep our fingers crossed we just get to see good clean competition. caitlyn jenner best of luck running to be the next governor from california. we'll find out in september and talk to you in between. >> i certainly hope so, caitlyn, join in, donate, help this cause, we've got to get gavin newsom out of there and take the state back. brian: you've got it thanks so much for joining us always good to see you. meanwhile coming up straight ahead, we're getting ready for cpac, matt and mercedes schlapp are here to preview the jam packed weekend they put together which you can catch on fox nation. >> ♪

and a half years after his attempt to extort nike leaving many in the media to now eat their own words. >> you got lucky tonight. we're back with attorney michael avenatti. he's a main player. >> sitting beside me, you have to guess, hint, his name is michael avenatti. >> look i think you're doing a hell of a job. i don't think you're in this for money. >> to me you're like the holy spirit. you are all places at all times. he's out there saving the country. ainsley: joining me now with the american conservative union, matt and mercedes schlapp. good morning. >> good morning. ainsley: good morning, hey! you have a big weekend we'll talk about cpac coming up but first let's get your reaction to this michael avenatti story. mercedes i'll start with you. >> i think the district judge said it right. michael avenatti was drunk on power on his platform, and i think using his platform, and i think that it's just so telling that these individuals who tried to become famous with their job of trying to destroy donald
5:33 am
trump, they are having their day of reckoning right now, and you know, he, at this point, obviously he sounded like he felt very remorse about what had happened, saying he's destroyed his relationships and his friendships through this process , and i've got to tell you with what the liberal media did to make him into a dem igod backfired. ainsley: matt, let's move on to the acu joining this lawsuit. donald trump launched this class action lawsuit against big tech and i know your organization has joined too. why is that? >> yeah, that's right, and the thing that is concerning, ainsley, they have disagreements should we breakup big tech should you have the ability to sue big tech there's a lot of libertarian leaning conservative s and these are private companies you have to leave them be. what we have to understand is they don't have the right to call themselves private companies when they are colluding and acting as agents of government officials. all these democrats who have been putting posts out there
5:34 am
demanding that jack doors it, for instance, cancel donald trump or stop some conservative or some great american from speaking, they are basically taking their marching orders from democrats in the regulatory state and on the hill, so they can no longer claim that they are private actors just making private decisions of who can be on their site and that is the fundamental thrust of this lawsuit which by the way is a trial lawyer's dream in a sense that we have the best trial lawyers on this suit. they are going to use the tactics at the left to take down big tech acu and cpac are proud to be on that lawsuit and we'll take the fight to them. ainsley: did they censor you guys? >> absolutely, all started at cpac in 2015 when facebook refused to allow cpac to trend because the conservative movement was really popping, donald trump was beginning his run for president, so we have witnessed this over and over again and you know this , in orlando, donald trump gave a speech that had something like 31 million views you can't even
5:35 am
find that anymore, because they just cancel us left and right. ainsley: and mercedes nick name, she goes by mercy in washington. >> lord is mercy that's right. ainsley: i love it. give us a preview of what we can expect with cpac. president trump will be there, governor kristi noem, rick perry , who else? >> we've got dr. ben carson is coming, robert o'brien who was the nfc advisor, we've got governor bill lee, it's just a whole group and then we've also got the grassroots activist like ian prior and one of the women, one of the moms who spoke against critical race theory, someone who survived chinese come communism and is speaking out against this radical leftist agenda in our schools, so it is about not only our conservative leaders but also, this organic grassroots individuals who are really making a difference in their community. they will not be canceled, we're going to be fighting against this leftist agenda, because we're here to save america.
