3:02 am
show. we have revived that tradition fittingly so. we did it last weekend. we are going to keep doing it when you tune in at 6:00 on "fox & friends," that's the plan. rachel: still 4th of july every weekend. by the way, welcome, both of you. i love that the fox flag was flying right next to the american flag. i thought that was pretty cool, will. will: beautiful. some good shots there the statue of liberty. the new york harbor and across this great land as again we welcome you in this morning. we would also love to welcome in our friends lawrence jones who is in dallas where, he is speaking today at cpac and, lawrence, i understand the last day or so you have been talking to attendees at cpac. lawrence: yeah, guys, it's so great to be with you guys this morning. we have been talking with folks. this is really the heart and soul of the conservative movement. you know, i keep saying this is where stars are born. but, if you are a politician that's been a little squishy, they will boo you. and they will get in your face and they will tell you what you
3:03 am
have been doing wrong, clean-up is what should happen in this country. anyway, guys, i had the opportunity to talk with some of those folks yesterday. let's take a look. >> what do you think the future of the conservative movement is? >> i think it's growing. >> starts with leadership and it starts with activists at a grassroots level. >> i think it's bringing back the ethical more rattle of our constitution. lawrence: you boys are in high school. why come to cpac. >> this is a big movement. we need background of all. >> who is your favorite speaker. >> i think i know who is going to be. lawrence: i mean? >> besides you my favorite speaker tonight will be you. [laughter] rachel: that's so nice. lawrence: look, i'm sure everybody is here to see the big man. donald trump is going to be speaking on sunday. i do have a speech. i'm going to be talking about crime in america. we predicted this about two and
3:04 am
a half years ago on the channel when i was going across the country, talking about the liberal cities that are in crisis. of course, we had the defund the police movement. had the fact that they are allowing lawlessness and d.a.s going crazy. that will be my speech today. will: excellent. which i believe will air on fox nation. we will check in lawrence today. pete: lyon fox nation we will play clips on the show tomorrow and critique him. rachel: this is the cpac on the west coast? wasn't there one. pete: big one in d.c. couldn't do it moved to florida now doing more cpacs. makes more sense. will: ' crime is the focus of lawrence's speech today. the vice president is addressing crime as well. she is saying it's a false choice to say reimagining public safety also means defunding police departments. now, that's a little bit at odds
3:05 am
with the choice that seems to have been present to the american people over the past year where it wasn't -- it wasn't coy, it wasn't shell game. it was quite literal and honest. we want to defund the police. i believe we were told it means exactly that. pete: yeah, it means reduce their budgets and also rein in what critics have said are abuses of law enforcement. well, here's -- when she was asked about it, here is what the vice president said on another network. watch. >> the administration has proposed using federal funds, the money from the american rescue plan to really fund police departments. how do you both reform the police, make policing different at the same time give money to police departments? >> yeah, well, first, i would say that we should not be offered and certainly not accept a false choice there needs to be accountability for police officers who break the rules or break the law. we need to have a ban on
3:06 am
chokeholds. we need to deal with accountability in terms of legal accountability. so, all of those things need to happen. rachel: so now that the polling is showing that people don't like defund the police, kamala harris is trying to say well, that's not what reimagining means. all that talk about social workers and reimagining, and defunding, that's not what that means, it means something else. however, here's some tweets from some more honest members of the democrat party. here is cori bush. she said defunding the police isn't radical, it's real. i think we had one by -- i thought we had one with aoc she said defunding the police means defunding the police. pete: it would take too much time to show all the statements of those on the left. the real false choice there is the headline in the "new york post." 1.5 billion in nypd budget not enough to your point according
3:07 am
to aoc. >> the real false choice this entire time has been the belief that you can maintain security and peace for people in the streets while handcuffing the police. that's the true false choice. the reality is it's a tough job. they have to be empowered. and they have tried to have it both ways. as a result, you mentioned the polling, people are noticing that crime is way up and there is only one side of the aisle that's been responsible for it. will: you mentioned by the way, rachel, the polling shows this has been horrendous message. here is the people who support deploying more police officers to police patrols a whopping 77%. increasing police department budgets 70%. this isn't a close call. pete: it's a huge number. rachel: absolutely huge number. it goes to show what the democrats do, and especially the progressives who have taken over the party they flip everything on their head. the criminals are now the victims and the good guys, the cops, are the bad guys. and every time the democrats
3:08 am
have reimagined anything, whether it's the family or anything else, it's always ended in a spectacular failure, which is why you saw this week actually "the washington post" trying to hint to the democratic party that the "the washington post" said this is bad. you know, you can't defund the police. it isn't that they gave these pinocchios for the lie that they told about really republicans are trying -- looked like they were trying to do a fact check. they were actually, i think, trying to hint to the democrat party, listen, i know you guys are committed to this, but this is not going to go well for you guys better change course. that's why you saw kamala harris change course. pete: move it over another direction. another is school reopenings and cdc guidance. of the cdc finally issued their new guidance updated yet again on how schools and how students will return in person in the fall. take a look at some of the aspects of the new cdc guidance. in person instruction in the
3:09 am
fall is a, quote, priority. next bullet, mavericks should be worn by all individuals age 2 or older. 2 or older. rachel: try getting it on a 2-year-old. pete: who are not fully vaccinated. down from 6 feet, already at 3 feet. apparently social distancing has to be maintained still in the classroom and then they want to implement layered strategies for prevention, test, better ventilation and encourages as if we have not been encouraging hand washing this entire time. rachel: hand washing is good and actually i do like that schools have become a lot cleaner. i think it should be that way forever regardless of the pandemic. but, listen, there is going to be a revolt by parents if they try masking our kids again into the fall. and the cdc is, a, not following the science but, b, they're ignoring parents who are seeing these statistics. a child who gets covid is 0.1%
3:10 am
likely to be hospitalized. there is absolutely no reason to maverick a child. it's so bad for them and it's so many more germs by the way with those masks. will: the american federation of teachers have taken a break from denying the existence of critical race theory while simultaneously saying they will defend any teacher who have in trouble from teaching critical race theory. they took a break and saying we share the growing concern over the delta variant as well as the evolving science around code transmission in young people, all of which make it incumbent upon school districts to remain committed to both vaccinations and these safety protocols. rachel that reroll will begin with me this is incredibly antiscience. if schools hide behind new cdc guidelines and require our students to be masked, they will be hearing from parents. as you point out, this is unsanitary, it is unsafe. it is unscientific to suggest that a 7-year-old needs to wear mask all day at school.
3:11 am
this is not appropriate. rachel: it's actually cruel. pete: hold on, they are saying that vaccination is voluntary. that's what the cdc guidance is effectively saying. they are not saying it needs to be mandated. these are all glins guidelines, schools can do whatever they want. at the same time, their guidance is if you are not vaccinated you have to wear activist that. which means they are going to be asking parents whether your kid is vaccinated or not and forcing you to wear mask, or not as a result of that. it all cascades and turns into something pointing fingers in the parent's chest did you do it or not, if not, i'm going to be following your kid like a stewardess on the delta flight right now. rachel: that's another mandate they need to get rid of. pete: 0.001% chance. rachel: dr. nicole saphier says requiring kids to wear masks is wrong. take a look. >> the cdc is really the only global entity that actually
3:12 am
recommends children above the age of 2 should all consider wearing masks. they don't cite studies that masking ching children reduces the risk. here is the news that came out of recommendations. they emphasize the importance of in person learning. they gave the schools and teachers unions no way out of getting bang to in person in the fall. en wear mask despite continued distancing, surveillance testing. whether or not community transition is low or high. they just say to still do that i think this is the wrong move. rachel: most school administrators are not brave enough to go against what the cdc says. pete: that's true. rachel: they are afraid of litigation if something happens. they are just cautious like that. so when the cdc does that, you can be sure we are going to have masked kids next fall unless they have very brave teachers and administrators. will: cdc changes guidelines over three weeks or. so still prospect before school starts change once again.
3:13 am
pete: the ever evolving science that we have known all along kids not affected by it evolved almost knew it couldn't happen you knew they couldn't do the common sense scientific thing. anyway, a few additional headlines as well starting with a fox news alert. a louisiana officer dies after being shot in the head. police say officer william billy collins jr. was responding to a disturbance call when the suspect opened fire and barricaded himself in his home for several hours. he was later arrested and taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries but police did not say how he was hurt. collins was a deputy in webster parish for 10 years but working as you a patrol officer when he responded to the call. god bless him. the u.s. is sending help to haiti following the assassination of the country's president. the fbi and security officials will go as soon as possible to assist in the ongoing investigation. so far 17 suspects have been detained, including two u.s.
3:14 am
citizens. police say eight suspects are still on the run. haiti's interim government also asked for u.s. troops to come in and protect key infrastructure but reuters reports the u.s. turned counsel the request. an apple co-founder steve wozniak says bitcoin is better than gold. you know it he told the tech conference, quote: gold is limited and you have to look for it bitcoin is the most amazing mathematical i do not invest in it but believe in the future. bitcoin worth over $33,000. hopefully going north soon. rachel: i believe it, but i won't invest in it. will: i agree. [laughter] rachel: that doesn't inspire confidence. will: media disgraced attorney michael avenatti. >> you are all places at all times. >> looking at the 2020, one
3:15 am

3:19 am
pete: all premised on the fact that they thought this was the guy that could take down donald trump. rachel: shows how bad their judgment. you just have to look at him and know he was shady. will: this is nothing deeper than simply a rereactionary motivation to just take down donald trump. it's not deeper. it's oh, this is the guy who can do it. so he is going to be on tv all the time. rachel: 100 times on msnbc, 122 times on cnn. it was just absolutely astounding. you are right just like with cuomo they got behind him for the same reason. pete: there was an exchange on cbs where there was an alittle bit of an acknowledgment maybe just a little bit the media failed just a little bit in its fawning coverage of avenatti. watch. >> he had some very big financial problems. he had a big win in a lawsuit that then was reversed.
3:20 am
and so, maybe needed some money and went about it the wrong way. >> wrong way, yeah. >> maybe we went about covering him the wrong way in a way. >> i wouldn't say we. >> the press. >> collectively. >> it's a big tent. >> yes, it is. rachel: no one wants to own it i thought that was hilarious. again, what a lack. will: did he say needed some money and went about getting it the wrong way? michael avenatti so you all know pleaded guilty, convicted for extorting nike. what did he get? he got two and a half years. should have getten 8 or 9. two and a half. he has two to three more cases pending which could ultimately lead to many more years of jail time. this was not just nike. this was multiple clients literally just extortion but just stealing money from his clients. rachel: yeah, stealing money from his clients. again, such a lack of judgment. do you know who had the best judgment on avenatti was tucker carlson who called him creepy porn lawyer. it was so obvious that was the
3:21 am
perfect moniker for him. pete: next soundbite a little creepy but not a porn lawyer. gutfeld takes on michael avenatti. >> talking about the media who thinks you are stupid and you are wrong about everything. spending money elevating bad guys like avenatti. fueled by narcissism they elevated him so they could look cool overlooking the obvious red flag everyone else could see. michael avenatti had more problems than a "fox & friends" cooking segment. they took pictures with them and partied with them and now they look like tools because they are tools, his tools. i wonder if brian stelter will admit his humiliation on reliable sources because, if he doesn't, how can he be considered reliable? will: cooking segment. rachel: evidence dissed on avenatti and cooking segment. will: creepy into the soundbite. pete: got me back on tape.
3:22 am
rachel: up next, some terrifying moments for a california family as a homeless woman tries to break into their home. >> i'm going to kill you [bleep] rachel: the mom inside protecting her child and she tells what happens next. or that her grandpa's dog tags would be left behind. but that one call got her a tow and rental... ...paid her claim... ...and we even pulled a few strings. making it easy to make things right: that's what we're made for. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for. get a quote today. there's an america we build and one we explore. one that's been paved and one that's forever wild.

3:27 am
door, thank goodness when i heard shouting outside. and i immediately closed my door when i saw the woman out there. she came to my front yard, shirt grabbed a big rock wrapped it up in her shirt. i closed up my windows which got my attention. that's when she ran up to my front door and was pounding on it and unfortunately my camera at my door did not video her. but she was trying to kick in my door, bang on my window saying come out, i'm going to kill you. then she went to my garage door throwing the rock -- oh, i'm sorry, she grabbed a large ceramic pot and threw that at my door and started quicking at my garage door. she jumped in the back of our truck, grabbed a 4 by 4 and started pounding at the windows and thankfully the police came right at that time. will: cynthia, what was this all about? was there any explanation for her behavior of what her motivation was? >> well, from what her reasoning
3:28 am
is, i don't know. i know she must be mentally ill and living on the street. she has been in our neighborhood before. people have seen her. what this is about, this is about a problem that has been going on in the city of riverside and all of california. we're on the verge of lawlessness here. it seems that the laws that we have only apply to certain folks. like someone like myself or my husband are working people, citizens that pay taxes, that are homeowners. if we were to be doing the same things, they would be locking us up because there is something that they can take from us. but the people on the streets that are committing the crime and i'm talking about the criminals here. i want to make something very clear. when i'm talking about homeless, i'm not talking about the people that want help and that need help. i'm all for helping them. we are talking about the criminal i have a grants here that are tasering us in our community, in our neighborhood. and now in our own home.
3:29 am
will: we hear so much about venice beach, for example. you are riverside. quickly, i don't have a top of time left it sounds as if it no surprise to you a problem in your community not just homelessness but criminality. this is a problem all over southern california. >> oh, it's all over california. our city officials. our mayors, our legislatures, our governor, they are failing us. it is unsafe in our own communities. you know, we have had murders here. a lady who was walking her dog just in april, just down the street from me, was stabbed to death by a mentally deranged woman who just three days prior had attacked another woman and then was let out the same day. they are failing us. and we have been experiencing theft, burglaries, break-ins, fires. do you know the fires out here in california, they are not all happening from the weather. it's happening because they are starting fires in these encampments. they are burning down homes.
3:30 am
businesses are shutting down because no one want to go in them. we are afraid. we are seeing in our streets people shooting up with needles. they are defecating and urinating and fornicating right in our community. will: cynthia, wow. what an issue and one that's come directly to your front door. i know you are going to a community meeting and demanding action. sorry for what you went through and thank you for sharing your story with the nation this morning on "fox & friends." thank you, cynthia. >> thank you. will: you bet. still ahead, a ride malfunctions and literally goes off the rails. how bystanders rushed in to help. and house republicans want to put an end to olympic athletes protesting against the flag. congressman lance gooden and ralph norman are part of the push and they both join us live next. ♪ ♪ at philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. the recipe we invented over 145 years ago

3:35 am
gentlemen, both, thank you so much for being here. representative gooden, let me start with you. this letter is to the u.s. olympic committee saying make sure our athletes comply with rule 50 of the olympic charter which says no political protest. have you heard anything back? what do you expect? >> i expect political correctness, which is what we are so used to when it comes to issues like this. i hope they will do the right thing. i think it's despicable that any member of the u.s. olympic would do such a dishonor to themselves or this nation by disrespecting the flag. i hope it absolutely is stopped. pete: i hope you are right. we had up there briefly the portion of the olympic charter which says no kind of demonstration, political, religious or racial propaganda is permitted in any olympic sites, venues or other areas. that's the olympic rule. the u.s. olympic committee has allowed for some protests during trials, representative norman, when it comes to the global stage, do you expect our athletes to violate that olympic
3:36 am
rule? >> no, and it's intolerable that they're doing it you know, these olympic athletes coming up through the system from grade 1 on up through when they qualify, they use institutions that are paid for by the united states taxpayer. they have scholarships paid for by the united states taxpayer. and for them to use five minutes to grandstand and denigrate the country that sent them there is unacceptable and, like lance said, we shouldn't put up with it and it's up to the united states to enforce it before the fact, not after the fact. pete: representative norman, i will stay with you, you are saying this is more about themselves at this point. by the time they reach a podium in this process, they are not just representing what they achieved as an individual, but they are representing our nation and that comes with a responsibility. >> exactly. and to make comments like ms. wolf made to use, you know, the ceremonies, issues, if she places or wins to burn the flag or to disrespect our leaders, we
3:37 am
don't put up with it and this should be a qualification prior to them competing. and, if it's not, then that disqualifies them. the flag means something. our country means something. and we paid their way and now is the time to put some consequences which they have not had. pete: representative gooden, up ountil this point the u.s. olympic committee really has not con anything about political protest. you think those athletes that indicate they want to or will violate that olympic rule should they even be representing our nation? >> no, i don't think they should. and i think it's a real special type of vermont that would go iw americans and disrespect the flag. there are so many wonderful americans on this deem doing the right thing and love our nation. they do disservice and disgrace to themselves when they step on the flag. i think they are dishonoring their fellow team members. they are distracting from our
3:38 am
goal which is to win gold melds. and i think it's horrible. and it absolutely should be stopped and i hope we get this fixed before we really get in the heat of the olympics. pete: well, good on you for at least holding them to account at some level and making them answer for it we will see what happens there. you can also watch congressman gooden's cpac speech. we see where you are at. we see that fox logo there it will be on fox nation. when are you going to speak, congressman? >> i think tomorrow afternoon before president trump gets to town. we are having a great weekend. pete: very cool. and former president trump will be speaking tomorrow as well. catch it all on fox nation. >> we miss you ralph.

rachel: bradbury is the ceo of the american explore station and production council she joins us now. ann, welcome. let's get to it how will the biden rules hurt the united states. >> first of all, what we saw for the administration asking opec to increase production we share the administration's overall goal and need for affordable and reliable energy for all americans. however, you think it's quite puzzling that they're asking foreign nations to increase production of oil while pursuing policies here at home that restrict production of oil and gas. rachel: you are right. go ahead. >> especially when we know that american oil and gas is produced at the highest standards of anywhere in the world. rachel: right, it's the cleanest production of it and also it's puzzling because these are infrastructure jobs. the biden administration is calling for infrastructure jobs and these are some of the best-paying, right? >> absolutely. we should be making energy here
3:47 am
in america. we provide millions of really high paying jobs all across the country. rachel: right. and in addition, there is some national security. i know concerns. i know that americans really wanted to be energy independent. they were under the last administration. what do you think the implications are if we become more dependent on middle east oil? >> so it's been the policy of every administration going back many decades to pursue energy security and energy independence. and we have really made great strides in achieving that over the last decade in large part because of the american shale producers. and we should be building on that progress, not walking back from it and policies like banning new oil and gas leases on federal land and pursuing punitive tax policies that target the american oil and gas producers, and producing and pursuing regulatory policies that provide a great deal of uncertainty at increased cost to
3:48 am
american oil and gas producers really set us back and make us more dependent on foreign sources of oil and gas while doing nothing to support their stated challenge of addressing climate change. rachel: so what's your advice to the biden administration? and when will you do to bring awareness to the american people? i think a lot of people would be really upset to hear that we are taking away these jobs, we're shutting down our independent oil and gas industry in a very powerful way, and at the same time, we're encouraging other countries and many of them who don't like to us increase production and become more reliant. what are you doing to let lawmakers know and the american people know about this hypocrisy? >> so, first of all, i think it's so important to remember that climate change does not start or stop at the united states border. rachel: right. >> the united states is only 11% of global emissions and falling. we are reducing our emissions more quickly than any country in the world. in the meantime, china and russia are increasing their
3:49 am
emissions. china is 27% of global emissions and rising. the united states can actually be part of the climate solution if the administration would like to pursue policies to work with the u.s. oil and gas industry to build on the discuss we have seen in reducing emissions in the united states. we can export that around the globe. rachel: we are all on the same planet. >> exactly. >> thank you so much, anne. appreciate it. >> thanks for having me rachel, good to see you. rachel: all right. well, still ahead san francisco district attorney talks tough claim nothing one is above the law. the constant rash of crime proves different. the backlash lies now online. ♪ ♪

4:02 am
for them to make and not the government's. enticing, coercing, intimidating, mandating, or pressuring anyone to take the vaccine is bad policy deteriorate the public trust and confidence in the state's vaccination efforts. rachel: that's a good point. a lot of people don't like the idea. they actually think it's creepy that, you know, somebody from the government would be coming in and asking you some really personal questions about whether you have the vaccine or not. jen psaki, the white house press secretary, was asked about the governor's criticism, here's what she had to say. >> well, let me first say that the failure to provide accurate public health information, including the efficacy of vaccines and the accessibility of them to people across the country, including south carolina, is literally killing people. so maybe they should consider that. but, i would say that what this is and what it is not, this is not federal employees going door to door. this is grassroots volunteers. this is members of the clergy. these are volunteers who believe that people across the country,
4:03 am
especially in low vaccinated areas should have accurate information. should have information about where they can get vaccinated. where they can save their own lives and their neighbor's lives and family members lives. that's exactly what this is. rachel: she said they are literally killing people and it's not going to be a government worker. it's going to be some sort of army of citizens who are loyal to the government? i don't know who these people are. pete: they are reimagining vaccinations like we repolice. the police won't be at your door a mental health worker. not a nurse that shows up to your door. it will be your pastor. your pastor will compel you with the power of the gospel that you must take this vaccine otherwise, jen psaki is telling you are literally killing people if you don't. it is the height of hyperbole from the podium. you saw the white house walk back from the idea they were going door to door initially. now as states are saying hold on a second. any time someone adds literally to the front of their statement,
4:04 am
they know they are being hyperbolic in what they are saying. is some of us in the business intentionally trying to kill people know what that looks lining. when there is an intentionality there. people have plenty of information about the vaccine. and their own health and their kids. no one is killing anybody. and that's not going to help. encourage states go door to door. will: hyperbolic policy. under the push and presumption here the vaccine is absolutely perfect and right for every single person, it's clearly. that's -- if you push back on that even the slightest, you are somehow an anti-vaxer. not taking into account some people have had covid as we talked about on numerous occasions. some people have had their own health concerns and some people have read the data and realize it isn't right for a child or whatever it may be. the entire policy and why someone should be showing up to your door is under the presumption it is right for you. it is right for everyone. rachel: well, i was just going to say what are they going to do with this? are they going to use this data?
4:05 am
let's say they go door to door and track who had a vaccine. who refused to take one or whatever, what are they doing with all of this information? and then the other thing is i really don't like, the biden administration has been trying to co-opt religion, people of faith. faith leaders, this idea that they are co-opting people of faith in these communities to then go in to the communities and use their, you know, influence to do something on behalf of the government, all of it seems really creepy to me. >> yeah. it's the new blood on your hands. remember, every argument the left uses they impugn conservatives of wanting to kill people. whether it's expansion of welfare benefits. push grandma off -- it paul ryan if you don't expand medicare. if you don't stop climate change the blood will be on your hands when people die as a result of it. you can't just have a policy agreement will how to best serve people. it has to be that the other

which has all kinds of implications for our country. into the future. yes, from a national security perspective. it's frightening. we spend 37% more per pupil on average yet we are on the dead average in terms of reading and science scores. and we are below average when it comes to math. i mean, for all the left loves to freak out about the idea that the russians are going to hack our elections, we are performing behind russian students when it comes to math. so what do we do then? weingarten would say have no method of accountability for the teachers. rachel: the power of the teachers unions they're calling for money by the way key onna, we spent more money than any of those other countries on education and scoring behind and focusing on critical race theory and all these other things. tiana, great op-ed, i encourage everyone to read it in the washington examiner. thanks for joining us. >> thanks. have great weekend.

pete: will, always feels like we are too far away from texas, but, this morning, especially we are too far away from texas and dallas. conservatives across the country are flocking to cpac 2021 in dallas. all streams live on fox nation this weekend. will: but, while we're not there, our friends are. so, live from the cpac floor is fox news contributor tammy bruce and "fox & friends" enterprise reporter lawrence jones. good morning to you both. glad we have some presence there. rachel: good morning. will: glad it's you two. tell us why it's so important. tammy first to you. >> tammy: first of all wherever pete is texas is. pete: thank you, tammy, i will take that. >> texas is so big it's encompassing "fox & friends" set. i think this is the perfect theme, obviously. and it is a statement. it's not just a statement when it comes to the organizers of an event. but, for searches to be able to
4:34 am
come to an event in the midst of this environment, to be reminded that they are not alone, that they represent the majority in this country, and the majority really the american ideal is now the conservative ideal. right? before maybe you could have some arguments that it wasn't about all americans, but it's become clear, in fact, that it is even to americans themselves. here is going to be about people finally being able to get together and talk. it's about hearing great speakers. it's about people will have disagreements certainly about certain things and president trump is here. that's going to be a blast for people. the inspiration for that is going to be important. so i'm looking forward to it the conversations, the revelations about policy. and the inspiration about moving our nation forward for everyone is very exciting. rachel: lawrence, you are always so good for getting the feel for where people are at. you are on the ground all over the country, what's the feel and attitude of the, you know, base of this party? are they still a bit demoralized? or are they pumped up for the
4:35 am
next election? >> you know, and thank you, my friend. i feel like they are excited. and they are waiting for the movement and the leaders to take their place. i said this yesterday on "fox news primetime," everyone keeps asking about that one leader, that's not what the people are saying. they want leaders that are going to step up to the plate. the reason why this is uncanceled is because although china released the virus on the world, our leaders canceled america. people were not allowed to go to work. they forced everyone to wear masks. they really -- government really took its place and took our civil liberties away. and i always wonder why cpac was in d.c. to begin with. this is why cpac went to florida and now texas because they didn't close. they opened up. they allowed their people to make decisions for themselves. and so, i think as we come out of this pandemic, we cannot forget what these government and
4:36 am
bureaucracies did for the public. they canceled us all. pete: absolutely, lawrence, well said. tammy, you also are hosting a show there. it's called cpac all access live. when can people catch the two of you coverage what's coming on on fox nation. >> this is what is great you want to watch the streaming service with the network that understands the viewer. that understand the nature of what is happening to this country and that is fox nation. and you can get us, of course, fox nation.com. but all of the services that provide fox nation as well. and i think we're up noon 2 today. and then tomorrow after president trump's speech. and whenever -- whenever he wants to stop is fine with me. but that's what we're going to be here. so the place to be is fox nation for analysis. all kind of great guests. even though lawrence and i could talk forever. we are going to have lots of great guests. lawrence: it's important to note fox nation is the only place you can watch this speech. >> tammy: that's right.

distancing and if you haven't been vac sib nateed even if you are three years old. rachel: two years old. pete: 2 or up you should be wearing a mask. >> well, first of all, guys, i'm happy with the first part of that at least they're coming out and saying they want in person learning. with all the damage rachel will say that's been done to children by them not being in person for so long, and having to learn remotely when you are three years old. so hooray for that but in terms of masks, there's a lot of problems with that getting a 3-year-old to wear a mask. there is the issue of the socialization when you have that mask. my 16-year-old confided something in me the other day. he said taking a test with a mask on is extremely difficult
4:45 am
and it interferes with performance. i never heard that before. you know, and then there is the risk of getting dizzy and having carbon dioxide retention and also the fact that teachers are already vaccinated, most of them and the fact it's based on how much virus is in the area. we are talking about many areas where there is no vice around at all. and, most importantly, the risk of spread of covid-19 from kid to kid has been found to be less than 1%. i think mavericks play a role in that, but, again, what's the cost? and that has to be considered. and when cdc comes out with a statement like this, you know that the states and localities, especially in blue states, are going to try to follow it. rachel: right. absolutely. those schools are going to say oh the cdc said so so we need to do it. we know psychological repercussions for kids wearing masks. i mean the fear that we're instilling in them. i have seen a rise in acne. these things are dirty so your teenagers are, you know, breaking out all over, as soon
4:46 am
as the masks come off, you know, their face clears up. but just tell me, what should parents do? because i actually think there might be a parental revolt on at least in red states for sure if schools try to mandate masks again in the fall? >> you made a great point, rachel. the kid don't wear them properly. it's like worn around the chin or not secure so it's not doing anything. the revolt should be exactly that where's your evidence? where's your evidence that it's actually increasing spread we know kids are not big spreaders. we know they are not having super spreader events in school. we know that when we kept them out of schools they were more likely to spread it and, again, the psychological harm. so i think that that's the revolt. it's a big danger here to make this mandatory it should not be. i'm all for kids saying hey, i want to wear a mask. go ahead. or if a kid is immunocompromised
4:47 am
or has a chronic condition, that should be a consideration. but it's the mandate that's the problem. remember john lock, the famous physician from the 1700s who said the purpose of laws is not to restrain or abolish. it's to expand freedom. and i'm sure pete and will, and you, rachel, agree with that it's to expand and preserve freedom. will: let's pick up on mandates though. there is this underlying presumption that the vaccine is right for every single person in this society. i think that's behind the biden administration's door-to-door push. a cnn medical analyst has extended that that idea it's right for everyone and should be mandated to private companies. dr. siegel, listen to this, and we will get your reaction. >> i do think it's time to start mandating vaccines i think that private industries and organizations will do that 17 million americans have chosen not to get vaccinated. that choice has consequences. now, we can't force you to take a jab in the arm, but there are
4:48 am
many jobs, perhaps, that can prevent you from working. will: private business as the tool of government. dr. siegel, your reaction? >> well, first of all, it's still an emergency use authorization and eric of the "new york times" hey, guys, how about licensing this vaccine the pfizer vaccine. we are reviewing it reviewing it means they are still reviewing for safety. i'm enormous proponent of this vaccine getting it mandatory i have a challenge for the government make it mandatory for your own self? what about your healthcare workers, cdc only 25% have even take the vaccine. how can you mandate it in businesses when it's an emergency use authorization and your own government people are not taking it? how hypocritical is that? rachel: dr. siegel -- i'm sorry, will, i think the worst is the mandates on the university students. we are seeing pressure on elementary and secondary schools through the unions saying that kids should be vaccinated but at universities they're literally saying you can't show up without
4:49 am
it. this is such a vials. we already know for many tell me if i am right, you are the doctor, the potential tellingive effect we have seen heart inflammation and so forth of taking the vaccine or of taking if you already had covid and you didn't know it what happened if you got covid nothing? if you are a young person and healthy, nothing will happen to you? >> rachel, i think it's rare the side effects. i will say if you have had covid, can you make antibodies that you should be able to use. the biggest problem here is targeting people and marginalizing them and demanding they come up front with some proof of vaccination that's unamerican, that's not where this should go. and we are completely discounting that natural immunity when you get over covid. completely agree with that. i'm for that group taking the vaccine but i don't think it should be in any way mandated. will: really quickly, dr. siegel, to highlight something you said i want to
4:50 am
clarify. the cdc employees right now you said 25% still are not vaccinated cdc employees? >> i'm being generous, will. i don't know the exact number. at last count it was actually 40%. i don't know -- i'm being generous with 25%. probably even more than that. will: that says something. pete: mandate it for yourself before you mandate it for others. thank you so much for your time. appreciate it. rachel: thank you, dr. siegel, really appreciate it. >> have a great day. >> straight ahead the mlb all-star game will be in full swing on fox tuesday. but businesses there are under staffed and overwhelmed after the game was moved last minute. we are going to talk to a denver business owner next. ♪ ♪ i'm going to hold my head up high ♪ i'm going to leave it all behind ♪ great tasting... they're power-packed vitamins... that help unleash your energy.

5:03 am
currently in place. and so joe biden' response was of course to talk about the guns fats guns are just shooting themselves. what is your solution to that? >> well, one is to expose how all gun control is racist. lawrence: yeah. >> i don't say this from this fake woke catchphrase type of thing. i mean legitimately this is a thing that was designed to stop black people from having the means to defend themselves. and by exposing that, we basically see how racist joe biden is and has been for 50 years. we have seen the pictures of him with the grand wizard from the kkk and, you know, one of the staunch proponents of the democratic, you know, angle, has been gun control. so, by exposing that in these demographics we not only expose that and remove and shift voting trends but we also create more unity and healing around something that we all fundamentally believe in the right of us all to defend our life. exposure and then solutions deal
5:04 am
with us all healing as a nation as opposed to just telling people in certain communities well, you know, you are cool with the killers because you live in a rough neighborhood. lawrence: you know, i get this question from my viewers all the time, how how is my able to go into the community and make impact. they ask you the same question how are you able to go into the communities and report on it they accept me as family. i'm talking about stories that matter to them. why do they accept my to teach them gun safety. >> for one we don't look super tactic cool. >> we have come as you are type of thing. we are not here to get the people that know everything, that's great. awesome. you know everything. we are here a that may be curious about firearms. know they live in a certain demographic that may be rough. know they want to inform themselves. you don't have to have a firearm. we want you to come as you are and learn and that. lawrence: all of that is going to be in your speech today.

5:06 am
plexiglass, 3 feet of physical distance and then implemented layered prevention strategies, testing ventilation and encourages, my favorite. hand washing as if we haven't gotten that memo. rachel: that is a very good thing and there has been some levels of increased hygiene cleanliness in schools which i personally love. when my kids come home from school the first thing i say wash your hands, wash your hands because it is a petrie dish. but covid-19 does not affect children. there was now a recent study that just came out that shows that it's even less than we thought. 0.01% of kids will be if they get covid. they are not spreading it why are we torturing children with masks when we know it's not necessary. i personally think it's a way to instill conformity in kids. i think it's instilling fear. and i think it's preparing them for more, you know, government control. and i think it's time for parents to stand up and say
5:07 am
these are our kids. i think there is going to be a parental revolt from this, will. will: i think you are absolutely right in every single element you just laid out. it also adds up to something you hinted earlier it can instill mental illness in children. you can't do a proper risk reward analysis when you blatantly disregard the science on the risk presented to you. end up with children that have no concept out there when they go out into the world of what a real threat may be. if you are going to have them sit around with virtually no risk to them or anyone else that they may represent covid but they have to wear a mask, you are instilling mental illness in children. pete: you are going to create two classes of kids. if you are saying you have to wear a maverick if you are not vaccinated that's a de facto admission of who is vaccinated and who is not which creates ton of social pressure on kids and parents who want to make the best decision for their kid based on the science which probably in some cases in many indicates could be high i don't want to try experimental drug on my kids. who is this going to hurt the most? hurt the students who have
5:08 am
already been hurt the most. i have kids that go to catholic school and christian school who haven't been wearing mask for a long timement afforded the ability for whatever reason they are committed to -- committed to actually following the science. inner city schools. different schools. in blue -- blue states and blue cities we're going to follow this to the develop are going to be back in the mask, back behind plexiglass in the same umbrella environment they have been in. it just creates even more dese. interstate. rachel: i'm interested in what you said about the divisions. another group of kids are these college kids who are now -- force them to get vaccinated. but, you know, as a mom. i hear all the stories, about you know, in dorms and apartments, you know, roommates against roommates. some who believe the cdc and believe the quote, unquote, science, you know, not wanting the other roommate and her friends to come over. it's creating so much tension. and we know that this does not affect young people at a scale,
5:09 am
you know that it affects old people and we are having this one size fits all is not good. we had dr. marc siegel on earlier. here is what he had to say about the new guidelines. >> a lot of problems with that getting a 3-year-old to wear a mask is the issue of the socialization when you have that mask. the fact that teachers are already vaccinated, most of them, and the fact that it's based on how much will virus is in the area. we are talking about many areas where there is no virus around at all. most importantly, the risk of spread of covid-19 from kid to kid has been found to be less than 1%. i think masks play a role in that. but, again, what's the cost? and that has to be considered and when cdc comes out with a statement like this, you know that the states and the localities, especially in blue states are going to try to follow it. rachel: just what you said, pete. pete: to school boards, superintendents, principals, cdc issues guidelines, not gospel.

take it into consideration the health of your kids. make a courageous decision for once and stand up and say if you want to wear a mask, wear a maverick. no one is going to make you do so. otherwise, make parents choose by the way every single teacher out there has had access to the vaccine if they wanted at this point. they are protected. rachel: it's really important. we talk about this. parents have to organize. if did you go as one person, they are -- you are not going to win this argument. if you don't organize with other parents as a big group, i think you are going to have a better chance of saying no more. ending that mask mandate in your school. will: we turn enough to to a live look at capitol hill where crews will continue taking down fencing today this was fencing put up after january 6th. david spunt joins us live from washington. david? >> good morning, will. there were some conversations to actually remove this fence after today, delay this a little bit longer ultimately authorities thought this was the appropriate time to remove this fence today. it's been more than six months

since rioters stormed the u.s. capitol. that's why the defense is coming down today. crews started work late last night. it's expected to take several days before they actually finish the job. it will continue today following january 6th not only the building itself but the outer perimeter of the capitol was really essentially the fortress outer fence came down. the inner fence is coming down. acting police pittman is looking at enhanced protection boot staffing and dignitary protection. additional riot training additional surveillance. expanded services and critical incident response plan. >> many i heard a lot about the safety of the capitol. i don't think having this permanent fence is the way to do that. >> i'm so over it. i'm glad. i'm glad it's going to come counsel. >> those are some tourists that we met up with yesterday. for those members of congress and staff who were actually inside the building the day that
5:12 am
mob stormed the capitol they feel a little bit anxious about security over all as they head in and out of work each day. here is congressman bennie thompson from mississippi. >> i would hope that the people who made that decision will be able to convince members of congress that whatever danger that occurred with january 6th has subsided. >> again, that process will take about three days. the u.s. capitol is still closed to the public. it's been closed since march 2020. back to you. will: thank you so much, david. i hope you forgive me this small plug. i talked about this latest episode of the will contain broadcast. so much information. every new angle and video january 6th out there and so little knowledge. people not only declining to look for answers, they are declining to ask questions. whyy those fences up all that time? what kind of threat and intel? we still don't know the name.
5:13 am
it's out there but not being publicized who killed ashley babbitt. we do not know the answer to that we don't know whether the fbi was involved before january 6th. we don't know what happened to the pipe bomb talked about in the days after january 6th. we do not know so many things about an event that everyone is aware of. but very few are even asking questions about the details that we have been told. rachel: do you know where we can get answers from the vape videotape about refuse to release. tape from all over the capitol they are holding on though that tape and affecting transparency. by the way the fencing around, this you know, capitol because of the riot. i didn't see any fencing around many of the the federal buildings that were torched this past summer. maybe we should put a fence around the south side. a lot of things getting in there. pete: pelosi always about a characterization and narrative not about an actual threat. as a result they kept it up as long as they could that narrative is useful to them. oh by the way over 500 plus

5:18 am
appeared to the provincial government it was the first time i experienced deep fear and helplessness and i was only 11 years old. i hope my story can give you a glimpse of the easelness of communism. rachel: that was pun speaker at a proclamation ceremony held by nebraska governor pete ricketts sharing stories of those who escaped commune youism. the state has declared the month of july victims of communism remembrance month to remind americans why we cherish our freedom and liberty. nebraska governor pete ricketts joins me now. governor, welcome. so, tell me why you thought it was so important to do this in the month of july. >> well, the chinese communist party is going to be talking about their 100th anniversary and of course trying to present what they have done in a very positive light. and i think it's important for people to remember what communism actually means. in the 20th century about 100 million people died because
5:19 am
the implementation of communism. that's more than all the deaths of world war i and world war ii combined. 65 million people in china died. 20 million in the soviet union. 2 million in north korea. 2 million in cambodia, just to name a few. and communism is the opposite, it's juxtaposed to everything we believe in as americans. i think it's important to remind americans how valuable our freedoms are and when we are talking to countries around the world, especially the ones that are controlled by communists, especially the chinese communist party. we have got to remember their value system is opposite of ours. it's diametrically opposed to it and we have got to stick up for our values. that means we have got to push back when they are trying to say what they are doing is so great when it's come at such a huge, huge costs. rachel: we have seen corporations embracing china and saying, you know, we are a for china country -- corporation. but i think what's the most

5:29 am
commits is the pretension that they are not biased in some way. this journalist is admitting it at the very least. rachel: how does it manifest itself. i want you to know deny it taught. i think one of the things as important, rachel, is in the past year, audience members have noticed not just your bias, because that's the way it used to be. now it's propaganda and lies. the denial of outright truth. pete: good point. it used to be bias, which is inevitable. you could bias. it's the agenda piece. and it starts from journalism schools and what they're teaching and what they're pumping out and then they go into newsroom where left wing think is group think. what's truth becomes whatever the left believes. you don't have a responsibility to report both sides anymore because that one side is discredited. we don't really we give them a little bit of time but we overwhelmingly push our perspective. that's the corruption of the idea. and the "new york times" effectively tried to invent

5:47 am
so we have as a down payment for the big goal to eliminate the cartel operations in the entire high dessert area. this is a big effort. pete: sheriff, i believe recreational marijuana use is legal in causal. what makes something an illegal grow or a legal grow? >> to be a legal grow you have to satisfy all the regulations regulated business call it seed to sale. the whole process is regulated. these illegal grows use obviously there is no taxation involved. there is no regulation. they take over open public lands. they steal the water from the local farmers. they use all the heavy pesticides and fertilizers which goes right into the ground and actually destroys aquifer for the high dessert and for residential community. this is a major existential threat for the community, so we are doing our best to knock this thing out once and for all. pete: as you try to knock it
5:48 am
out, are you seeing it ramp up because our border open and effective cartels are running it there so it's not just human trafficking obviously drug trafficking, ramped up massively because of the biden policy? >> what we are seeing is whatever is going on in the border, we are going apply people based on human trafficking that are out there in the dessert and they're the workers out there in the middle of nowhere tending to a farm. and a guy comes by and throws some cash at them once a month and sadly that's the sad reality of this entire human trafficking a lot of these people are indentured servants to the cartels. almost as much as victims as the community. pete: cartel traffics them across, makes them work there and effectively indentured service and send money back home whatever that may be and ultimately drug is their
5:49 am
product. can you eradicate this, sheriff? >> we can eradicate what we can see in the high dessert. we are well on the way to doing that only limitation is the shear resources. this is very intensive, you know, just hands on operation. >> we have labor intensive, and we want to get all of the counties surrounding l.a. this is ventura, san bernardino county. trying to work together to get the counties to chip in so we have enough resources. pete: the feds pitching in. we have seen them pull back deportations and other immigration related stuff as it pertains to cartels. are they pitching in? >> they are pitching in. but apparently there is a rule that says that the d.e.a. can only reimburst local law enforcement, $19,000 a year in overtime. and this day obviously it dwarfs that we need to change that regulation. so we can raise the bar. pete: the tentacles of the cartel are deep in our country and sheriff you are doing something about it we appreciate your time, alexville know wraf

6:03 am
the readings proved it. i watched the ratings, a great show. >> as painful as it was -- we are glad you are here and got to get your take because crime in america, policing in america is a huge topic, they seized on the defund the police movement even if they tell us it is republicans after talking about it for a year. vice president kamala harris was asked about the state of police reform and crime in america. here's part of her answer. >> the administration proposed using federal funds, to fund police departments.
6:04 am
how do you reform the police to make policing different, at the same time give money to police departments. >> we should not be offered or accept a false choice. there needs to be accountability for police officers who break the rules. dealing with accountability in terms of legal accountability so all those things need to happen. >> it is a false choice that you don't have to hurt the police when you defund them. >> they are full of dumb ideas, we get that. president biden canceled the keystone pipeline, they dumped a bunch of energy jobs here while simultaneously making putin richer, also want to teach discrimination by teaching kids to discriminate. having said that. triosing with some ideas was the
6:05 am
single dumbest idea they ever had, they are trying to blame republicans for it. you have to be a dunce with a dunce cap sitting in the quarter to believe this stuff. they made a mistake because going forward, they put themselves in a box, pushing a bill right now, affirmative fair housing, ripped money away from localities if you don't put section 8 in the suburb that would defund the police, pushing that hype now while claiming republicans are doing it and i confronted my guests on unfiltered, they are republicans, this will be a disaster for them in the midterms because public safety is the issue that takes you at the kitchen table. you can argue about tax rates
6:06 am
for your car gets broken into that issue becomes personal, they know they are in trouble. >> numbers back you up. the percentage of people who support the idea of deploying more police officers, 77% of people support increasing police department budgets, the 2020 election was so much about personality, about donald trump and what that covers up is the idea not just defund the police but many more ideas are incredibly unpopular, that the left has been championing, what is coming ahead. we worry about our culture and we should, it may be there is a ray of hope that the public does not want these ideas that got a significant hearing in the past couple years.
6:07 am
>> liberal versus conservative issues, they can't get lost, they go to work or the kids soccer games if tax rates go up a few points, they catch their account at the end of the year. a check they barely see is direct deposited but that's not the case with this issue. when it comes to crime it happens in front of you. that is why coronavirus is a big issue. everybody knew someone who had it. i lived through it in new york city when rudy giuliani in a major upset won the mayorship twice because crime is hitting people in their own homes, they can't run from it. >> in new york, the city is so different over the last 6 or 7 years the whole place smells like urine and pot and there's crime everywhere. it is disgusting. >> don't be sorry. >> i hate saying it.
6:08 am
>> it is the greatest city on earth. they should treat it as such. >> you talked about this issue and hit the nail on the head, a lot of people getting paid not to go to work, businesses are hurt. people can't find enough people to work at all these job openings. don't want to talk about how stupid the policy is that what is doing for the culture, the work ethic in this country? >> that matters. i opened my show last week talking about this. we laugh a lot on this when we have emotional issues but this is serious, not just that paying people not to work is not compassionate, it is outright
6:09 am
evil. the difference, someone falling on the sidewalk and don't help them up, you didn't do anything. malfeasance is when you punch them in the face as they tried to get up. there are different levels of depravity there. what does that mean in regards to this? when you rob people of the dignity of a job by incentivizing them, some people maximize. i can make war at home, you rob them of everything, the experience of socializing with other human beings as milton friedman said, the ability to manipulate your environment and learn the value of good work to produce something of value which i cleaned modeling and in a cemetery, laugh all you want, the cleanest toilet bowl you ever saw, i understood that that is what i was paid to do and
6:10 am
when you rob people of that you've stolen every part of being human, the ability to live on this planet and say it is better because i was here. it is evil. not just not compassionate and wrong. >> cannot agree with you more. >> this is why you have a show and people love it. what do you have on the program? >> you had jesse on before, performance-enhancing pills, i caught it, i watch your show and he's on tonight and i have a video that is a huge surprise. no idea it is coming talking about persistence, a navy seal,

immigrants insists country. the guy is going to blow your mind. >> we will be watching. now we take a live look at charlottesville, virginia where a second confederate statue will be taken down, the first was removed moments ago. >> 50 years after the civil war the statue of general robert ely was put up in charlottesville, an hour ago it was removed. >> we found the statue, one small step closer to the ball of helping charlottesville, virginia and america grapple with the sin of being willing to destroy black people for
6:12 am
economic gain. we the people are one step closer to form a more perfect union. >> 100 people were on hand to see the statue come down, the commander of confederate forces who led the army of northern virginia 1862, surrendered in 1865, the source of recent controversy. white supremacists marched on charlottesville and then the unite the right rally turned into a violent clash resulting in the death of heather hager. president biden helped him to run for office, donald trump said the blame is on both sides for the violence, the city of charlottesville voted to remove the statue after the supreme court weighed in and allowed the statute to be removed. a few blocks from here in the next few hours. >> of local authorities vote to take it down that is their
6:13 am
prerogative, nothing to do with relitigating the civil war but i don't like the statute tearing down not because of what it stands for because it is an attempt to erase our history as opposed to understand it and learn from it as opposed to canceling it out. >> that is how they are approaching and looked it up so we don't want that. we have elite universities, ivy league schools are leaving students financially hobbled for life. we will talk to a man pushing an alternative to higher education and then we are squaring up in fox square. who will take home the "fox and friends" trophy.
