3:20 am
legislators. lawrence: got that sound? steve: we do. >> i will start by making a statement about the legislators in texas who are showing extraordinary courage and commitment. i applaud those standing for the rights of all americans and all texans to express their voice through their vote unencumbered. i will say that they are -- they are leaders who are marching in the path that so many others before did when they fought and many died for the right to vote. i do believe that fighting for the right to vote is as american as apple pie. did is so fundamental fighting for the principles of our democracy. so i applaud them. lawrence: i can't let go courage and sacrifice. we use those words when our service members go out and serve
3:21 am
we go out and talk about when the law enforcement community go out there to compare that then you have the vice president saying they are letting their voice be heard. they are elected officials. these aren't private citizens. you let your voice be heard when you cast a vote. it's okay if you don't like the bill. but vote on the bill. get through it and go back home and go back to work. ainsley: like the governor said is it courageous to run away from a fight? is that what courage looks like? what do constituents in your home state think about this, lawrence? if you live in a district and you are paying their salaries and they are running away from bills they have to pass, keep in mind texas only meets in session every other year. lawrence: that's exactly right for four months i actually support because they do more damage when they are in office spending your money. i like that. what the citizens in texas are saying this is just posturing. this is what the democrats do. instead of voting on bills, when they don't get their way, they either change the rules or they just abandon their job. steve: right. what do they do fly to d.c. on
3:22 am
the same day it kamala harris and joe biden are talking about voting rights. steve: what the two bills would do is ban drive-thru voting and 24-hour and late night voting. get rid of those that they did during the pandemic. i don't know why anybody is voting at 2:00 in the morning. here's the thing, texas is also adding additional hours making it easier to early vote. lawrence: that's exactly right. steve: which in delaware joe biden's home state they don't have any early voting. so it's easier to vote in texas than it is in delaware. who going to ask joe biden about that? lawrence: this was after the republican legislators all the concerns the democrats had. they made sure sunday voting was there they made sure there was additional time. even after getting the stuff they wanted, they still left not to vote on the bill. this is the second time they have done this. ainsley: we have talked about what's hang in cuba. we have talked about border issues continuously on this show. we also talked about we are seeing the voting rights and different states disagreeing and
3:23 am
also critical race theory. oklahoma is the latest state to say no critical race theory in grades k through 12. the school board, oklahoma school board voted on monday, a 5-1 vote. you are not allowed to pass this message on to our little children. steve: this comes on the heels of in may the republican governor in oklahoma signed a bill that said essentially banned crt. teachers are prohibited from discussing 8 different concepts about race. you cannot tell students that an individual is inherently racist. sexist, or oppressive by virtue of their race or sex either consciously or unconsciously. it's what we have been talking about. what they have done is they have put pen to paper and they have written down all this stuff that is going on in the country and they have said, you know what? it's not going to happen in oklahoma. although i will say after the board of education voted yesterday 5 to 1 to stop it,
3:24 am
tulsa school district there said you know what? we're not listening to the board of education, we are going to keep doing what we're doing. ainsley: the democrats say it doesn't exist it's not a problem. it's a waste of time. lawrence: check this out by john. ainsley: he plays sid in -- >> you have been [bleep] out of shape about critical race theory. well, the good news is you might not be a racist [bleep]. you might just be ignorant of what the hell cr. >> it is. basically, you know, it's a bunch of legal scholarship and academic thinky talk that tries to figure out what symptoms in place will [inaudible] u.s. in subtle ways rather than by full on in your face racism no. one is teaching this stuff to your young kids so, calm the [bleep] down. it's pretty high brow college level stuff. and if your kids go to college they are definitely going to be exposed to this [bleep] whether you agree with it no matter what you think, okay?
3:25 am
again, calm the [bleep] down. lawrence: he doesn't know what he is talking about. evan studying this now it's true they spin off to other social justice terms. the problem is not teaching the history the problem is teaching a conclusion the fact that one side is still oppressive because of the color of their skin. i have no problem with teaching the good, bad and ugly. i think that's a healthy conversation. but, that's not what the theory does. it's no longer a theory when they teach it. they teach it as fact. steve: absolutely. presenting it and this is what happens. it's not like this is an opinion. under the new rules in oklahoma, they authorize parents to look at the curriculum, the materials and the assignments and make sure that what is coming home complies with what the state has passed. if not, there is going to be a way for them to complain and then the teachers have got to respond. ainsley: the actor has the right to say what he wants to say there are a lot of people in new
3:26 am
york agree with critical race theory being taught in our schools. a lot of people around the country not in favor of this. look what just happened in 8 states now in our country. and there's a mom who is trying to get the information. she says i know they are teaching it. my children tell me they are teaching it, i'm trying to get the information through freedom of information act and they will not give me the curriculum because i think they are hiding something. listen. >> when i enrolled my daughter in school. i was asking to see the curriculum and i also was asking for a document showing that they taught critical race theory or gender theory. i was already told that they embed values of gender theory into the kindergarten classrooms and all grades at an age appropriate level. it still isn't clear to me how they were practicing gender theory and how they were practicing critical race theory. i think a lot of parents would feel a lot better if the school just says we are teaching critical race theory in the same way that we teach about communism. you know, we are not practicing it. lawrence: guys, the final thing i have to say on this, i do
3:27 am
think it's dangerous to do the ban because they go into hiding when that happens. i noticed this when i was covering the college campuses at campus reform before i joined the channel. any time bans were implemented and there was public backlash, they would start to dig deep. steve: find a way to do it. lawrence: change it around. i had opportunity to talk with folks at cpac. the best defense is educating your kids yourself because we saw this in loudoun county. their kids are turning against them, ainsley. can you imagine feeding your kids and raising them their entire life and they choose the teachers over their own parent. ainsley: here is the argument from this mother how can you teach them something different at home and have a diversification about it at home if they are not they are teaching our kids this. you might have child that comes home and talk to you. a lot of teenagers won't tell their parents what they're learning it doesn't give the parents an opportunity to correct or set the record straight when there are a lot of parents that want to just teach we love everybody. we love every skin color.
3:28 am
we all have the opportunity. beare all-american. steve: that's once of the things about the pandemic during the pandemic a lot of the parents were looking over the shoulder of their kids going hey, what are you doing? hey, wait, what are you doing? they are teaching this in school? and that's why we got to where we are right now. lawrence: a lot of interesting things happened during the pandemic, this is one of them. steve: last year they did not have the major league baseball all-star game but it's going to be in full swing tonight on fox. and businesses in the area around denver are hoping it will be a home run for their bottom line. ainsley: carley shimkus is so cute. she is out there early. it's like 4:28 out there. she is outside of coors field she spoke with business owners. she is going to join us live next. she just hit a home run. ♪ ♪

like that. is that accurate. >> it's absolutely and totally inaccurate. president trump was the president of freedom. particularly the president of freedom in this hemisphere and is he seen that way by folks who live under oppression and repression. the same people who criticize the flag and hate the american flag will also criticize president trump for his attitude of showing solidarity with the people living in those conditions and looking at ways to pressure the regimes. unlike by the way under the obama administration, the obama administration went out of it way to help fund and help and solidify the castro regime and abandon the people and contrast could not be so dramatic. i'm extremely grateful for president trump's policies around the planet but particularly in this hemisphere and dealing with cuba. he was, frankly, the best friend of the cause of freedom and, by the way, the voters of turned out en masse. those who understand what it is to live under repression they
3:45 am
turned out for president biden ever president trump and by the way how we wish that president trump was in the white house at this very important -- during this very important moment. steve: all right. let's see what happens if there are more protests this weekend whether or not the regime allows it. i wouldn't hold my breath but nonetheless they made a great point this weekend. congressman mario diaz-blart thank you for joining us live. thank you, sir. steve: all right a quarter before the hour on this tuesday. let's check in with senior meteorologist janice dean. she has a good umbrella for a good reason. janice: yes. indeed. we will see the potential for scattered storms across the northeast. take a look at the maps and i will show you not only the northeast but the midwest and southwest. temperatures in the lower 70s because we have got a lot of cloud cover and the potential for some severe storms later on today and for some reason my maps won't work. i will blame the weather for that but i will tell you the potential for storms across the

3:54 am
of us have ever had to do that play tennis outside for three hours wearing a mask. i think it's absurd, unfair and unhealthy. it's not based in science. what we're asking kids to do. ainsley: what are you going to da about this? are you going to send her back to the camp? >> no that camp was a one-time deal. this issue is looming for kids this fall. i just saw that the state of california passed a law that's going to require all children k through 12 to wear masks to school. and, you know, i think that it's time for this country to step back and ask the question, why are we victimizing children with nonscience-based approaches? i mean the cdc's new guidance isn't based on their own science and research that shows children are not at risk for covid and not also drivers of spread. i think parents like myself are asking the question -- right, absolutely. parents like myself are asking the question can we please liberate our children and look at what the science actually says about this.
3:55 am
it's unfair what we are asking kids to do. ainsley: you wrote an op-ed in the "wall street journal" and that's how we heard about your story. here's what you said. we are now 16 month into the pandemic and children remain victims of the covid political theater that has characterized the national debate about masks ever since. you don't have to be a statistician or an epidemiologist to know that masking children is pointless at best and unhealthy at worst. we all want the best for our kids. we are going to do the right thick. but tell us the science. what is the reason for this when every doctor says our kids are safe outside? >> well, right. and the science, i mean, 16 months into the pandemic, we have a lot of research that shows with abundant clarity that children are not at risk, not at serious risk for covid. and they are not spreaders. i mean, communities at child care center have been open since the beginning of the pandemic. and, also what we are starting to see is that the science is showing that actually masks are probably harmful for children i
3:56 am
mean, one group of parent sent their kids' mask to a lab and diseases on them far riskier to kids than covid. things like newspaperria, legionnaires and meningitis. what about the psychological harm of requiring children to wear masks for 8 hours a day, again, including outside in debilitating heat like my daughter had to do. ainsley: not getting ready to know our kids because they can't see what they look like. we did reach out to sidwell friends summer are like other schools operating camps in washington, d.c. they following the masking requirement set by d.c.'s office of the state superintendent of education. so they say they are just following the guidelines they are given. thank you so much for coming on with us. okay. have a good one. the u.s. olympic committee is considering modifying the stars and stripes but their plan to give old glory an overhaul is being met with resistance. big promises. small promises. cuddly shaped promises.

91 degrees in denver today. the game was originally supposed to be in another hot city, atlanta, georgia, but, of course, it was moved to denver because of the georgia voting law that president biden called jim crow on steroids. after he said that people started looking at the law diving in and saying wait a second. both states require voter i.d. georgia has two extra days of early will i voting. far from jim crow on steroids. that's one part of the story. the other part of the story is the game and excitement surrounding the game. getting fans back into a sense of normalcy inside stadiums once again to watch great baseball. a lot of people are excited about that. a great time was had by all last night during the home run derby. we still saw some of the remnants of that fun taking place on the streets outside the stadium when we got here this morning to set up. so a lot of fun here in denver as people await the mlb all star game later today guys. steve: coverage is going to start at 7:00 p.m. eastern time

heading up to philadelphia to double down on that message. >> he will lay out the moral case for why denying the right to vote is a form of suppression and a form of silencing. >> recently several g.o.p. state legislatures have moved to secure the ballot box by strengthening i.d. checks, blocking ballot harvesting and limiting early voting. in his remarks today, the president is expected to accuse republicans of using those measures to make it harder for so many people to vote. >> meantime major drama in texas where democrats have fled the state. state lawmakers leaving austin in protest. flying to the d.c. area yesterday to block a special legislative session focused on new voting laws. now their absence will force a delay in the debate in texas. we got a tweet from one democratic state lawmaker from round rock, texas, he wrote we left behind our families, our livelihoods and our beloved texas. but our sacrifice is nothing compared to the sacrifices brave americans have made throughout history to protect the sacred right to vote. we heard from the vice president
4:06 am
yesterday who says she stands with these lawmakers. we are waiting to see if they may make their way over to the white house to get some support from president biden himself. steve, ainsley and lawrence a story you will hear a lot more about this week. steve: thank you, mark. do you think it's a coincidence that they jetted off in a private jet that cost $100,000 exactly the same time that kamala harris and joe biden are talking about voting rights. no. it's not a coincidence. and do you know what the democrats are doing? they are fundraising on this. this exact issue they are saying we had to leave texas because they were going to vote on the two onerous bills. one of them would do away with 24-hour voting in the wake of the pandemic. but they are actually adding additional hours to early voting. which is something that they have in texas that they do not have in joe biden's home state of delaware. ainsley: they are running to d.c. because they know they are protected there. they know that all of mommy and daddy and everyone will protect them if they go to d.c. because they don't feel protected in texas. but the governor says you try to
4:07 am
come back here, you are getting arrested. listen. >> the most untexan thing you have ever heard? texans running from a fight? they are quitters. it's like during a football game or baseball game, taking their equipment when they are way behind and just leaving the field. that is not the way that texas, texans do things. once they step back into the state of texas. they will be arrested and brought to the texas capitol and we will be conducting business. steve: he is so right about that. lawrence: he is. steve: think about the image ril of your own state of texas, texas flag right there. texas stand and they fight. they don't turn around and get on a private jet and jet away so that they can try to run out the clock. of. ainsley: trying to care couple vent the rules. lawrence: producers make fun of me all the time because i have such texas pride. you duke it out on the floor. they are avoiding the flight. the reason why they are going to washington, d.c. because the district of columbia, they can't
4:08 am
coordinate with other state police and other states to extradite them back to the state of texas because there is a longstanding law that if you don't show up for your job as a legislature the texas police they can come and pick you up and make you vote on the floor. because the texan people want you there to debate. they want you there to vote for the bill. it's okay if they decide not to go with this because it is all political just vote. ainsley: i know the democrats in texas would say we support them because they like their policies. what do the independence think? would they say we put you in office. we pay your salvery. don't run away from our state. come back and compromise. lawrence: exactly right. texans support voter i.d. they support reining in government. this is what democrats want. there was a lot of things done during the pandemic because we couldn't go to vote and all of that so it was supposed to be temporary, but they like the benefits that they got from that. so they want this to be permanent because it -- a lot of the mail-in votes were votes for
4:09 am
democrats. this is not safe. it's not effective. and i think they are going to pay a price at the ballot box because people are looking at this and saying this is political posturing. why are you guys on the plane without masks after forcing us to wear masks? why are you guys taking pictures and saying it is george just and quite sacrifice to do this when we have people that are fighting every single day in the middle of war. those are courageous ones. steve: look at those poor people getting off the private jet to get into their motor coach, their chariot as you can see right there and go into a luxury hotel and stay as long as possible. ainsley: and meet with the vice president. lawrence: what an embarrassment to texas. steve: we will see what happens and keep you posted on that. yesterday a big story and continues to be a big story, the people of cuba have had it up to here. you know, they are living in a communist regime and over the weekend, on havana on sunday, as you can see, hundreds, if not thousands, took to the streets to protest.
4:10 am
of course, yesterday we heard the administration make the laughable case that it was because of covid which is raging there. it's not because of covid. it's because of communism. although, you know, when you think about what one of the selling points communism and cuba is. well, you know, we may drive an impala from 1965, but we have got state of the art healthcare system. everybody gets healthcare. the heck system down there is not good and that's why covid is raging. and the hospitals are in terrible straits. and now the people have it up to here. lawrence: look at the american flag right there. ainsley: i know. nic malliotakis. no abilities to achieve your goals. only earn $5 a month. how do you buy toilet paper and paper towels and medicine. steve: you rely on the state. ainsley: she says the state will get products from other countries if they do or if they can afford it themselves.
4:11 am
they hoard it and don't give it the people. steve: you know, but that's how a socialist country works. ainsley: that's what people are worried about. steve: bernie sanders, the independent socialist, exactly, he has been a supporter of cuba. and think about things he said as late as about a year ago. here's bernie praising castro. >> we're very opposed to rah authoritarian nature of cuba. you guys, it's unfair to simply say everything is bad. you know, when fidel castro came into office, do you know what he did? he had a massive literacy program. is that a bad thing? even though fidel castro did it? lawrence: the democrats for this. they know the connection they have had to these socialist policies that they are advocating right here in america. what are the people doing there right now? they have the american flag. think about it the american democracy is under attack. they tonight like the constitution. they don't like the flag. they don't like our founding documents but that same sham it
4:12 am
we advocate here this is what the people in crub advocating for right now. ainsley: aoc is staying silent on this. she is a lois. she has been pushing this how in the world can they look at these images of cuba and think that's okay and that's what they in the our country and they don't want you to know that message. they want you to think that they're protesting because of covid. at least that was the original message yesterday. steve: so there you have got bernie sanders who says look, okay. castro was a dictator. but, he had a literacy program. so it's all better. lawrence: it's all about the program. steve: yesterday, peter doocy pressed bernie sanders about what he has said in the past. and mr. sanders and peter's interplay is right here. >> last year during the campaign, you said that it's unfair to simply say everything is bad in cuba. do you still share that sentiment now? >> i support throughout latin america and in cuba and every place else the right of feel protest for a decent economy. and for political freedom.
4:13 am
steve: okay. so, he supports the right to protest. of course, you can't protest under a dictatorship. that's why they pulled the plug after two hours. so we are all for protests. peaceful protests but how about giving them a living wage? how about letting them buy. lawrence: is he advocating and notice the wording here. i support the right to protest. is he not supporting the people and what they are fighting for. just the right itself. and as you correctly noted. they don't have the right to protest there. some of them have already been arrested by the way. ainsley: yeah, they have. reportedly arrested. some of them, their family doesn't know where they're. lawrence: they just disappear. ainsley: they don't have the internet over there. steve: they have a literacy program i have heard. i wonder if they have got all the books. or just have the books that support the ideology. congressman mario diaz-blart is the son of cuban immigrants. weighs on with us about 45 minutes ago. he had this observation about why the people are out in the streets in havana.
4:14 am
>> what you are seeing is, again, the rejection of 62-years of dictatorship of communism, of socialism. of, you know, lack of basic goods. the most important thing, steve, and you are seeing it in all the demonstrations is people yelling for freedom. freedom is the solution. the problem is communism and socialism. the solution is freedom. that's what they're asking for. that's what they are working for. and they are risking everything to try to regain their freedom. you have seen the american flag, a lot of folks carrying the american flag. which, by the way, that's a crime in communist cuba. yet, they are out there carrying the american flag. why? because the american flag symbolizes freedom. lawrence: last thing i will say on this if you remember during the past election. all the cuban immigrants that decided they were going to support donald trump, the main thing that i heard on the ground is this idea of socialism being brought to america. i think so many people here are so ignorant to what actually happened in cuba, these folks lived through it they remember the stories.
4:15 am
and they continue to say we see that coming here to america not on our watch. steve: well, the last thing he was talking about is how they were carrying the american flag, which is the same flag that our u.s. u.s. and pair limp. ainsley: considering redesigning the american flag. they say that they are in the early stages. they are brainstorming different flags just to make everyone feel included and, you know, make everyone feel happy. steve: the one on the left is what they use right now. and it only has 13 stars because they said about 10 or 15 years ago when they redesigned it too hard to have all 50 on a little emblem the size of a cookie. but, that particular version is an official u.s. flag. the one on screen right is what they are thinking about doing where have you got five stars and you have got, what, three, four stripes. red stripes.
4:16 am
ainsley: five stars represent things like inclusion. lawrence: no, no, no. this is dumb. as a matter of fact, why isn't the original flag on there? if. steve: 50 stars. lawrence: continue to say it can't fit on a cookie. we went and looked at the helmets in our executive producer's office they all have the original flag on there with 50 states on there. why isn't that the flag that is being included on there? this is another attempt and i get it people have the freedom to speak what they want to speak. at least you would think the country would advocate for our original flag. steve: see if this makes sense to you. this is a statement from the olympic committee to fox news. they say it is common practice in creative development to share a variety of concepts with stakeholders. what has been september to you is just one of dozens of ideas shared in this brainstorming and surveying process. so, you know, if you are going to talk to the stakeholders of the u.s. olympic team, wouldn't that be the people of the united states of america? how do the stake holders in the
4:17 am
united states feel about, okay, we want just five stars and we want those little stripes? lawrence: my big bro sean hannity is fired up with this. this is what he had to say. sean: stop wasting your time and money with a redesign of the united states of america and the u.s. flag. it's an awful idea. because our stars and stripes should be the only flag representing this country at the olympics and the paraolympics. so many amazing athletes and champions that we are all so proud of. and they represent the united states of america. we don't need your new flag. we already have our own. and when the exception of a few far left woke socialists, most americans love their country. ainsley: i don't even recognize that new flag. they just need to recognize the regular flag because that other one is going to cause even more division you watch the islanders game her microphone goes off and everyone in the audience starts
4:18 am
singing the national anthem. that actually happened to me at a fourth of july parade the young girl forgot the words because she was nervous. we all chimed in because it was so beautiful. that's what unites us all. lawrence: you have other people literally right now in cuba with the american flag saying we want to be like them. we want our freedom and our own country cannot. ainsley: what does it say to the olympic athletes that have trained their entire lives to work really hard for that american flag? they miss weddings and proms. if you know anyone who has trained at that level, they are -- they have just sacrificed everything. they move away from their families to go find the best ice skating rink or the best gym. they work so hard. that flag represents all of us and so proud of them when they drape that flag over them in the end. steve: stakeholders. foxnews.com and on facebook this tuesday morning. 7:18 now. time for some news and ashley is in today.

4:26 am
america's crime crisis. will his plan curb the violence. ask a spokesperson for the national police association sergeant betsy smith. thank you so much for joining me, sergeant. you know, there was a lot of talk about root causes. i support that. but what about getting to the solutions that will help stop the pleading right now? >> well, and this is the thing, lawrence. you know, you can -- every one of the police departments, let's take the top 25 in the united states. they could each hire 1,000 police officers tomorrow. it would be a year before they would be a viable patrol officer on the street. so we have much larger problems. the president just in that clip talked about using covid money to pay officers overtime. for example, in chicago, we already have officers being forced to work overtime. their days off have been canceled. they are working 12-hour shifts day after day after day.
4:27 am
putting more exhausted cops on the street and then telling them you can't get involved in foot pursuits. you can't make traffic stops. any kind of use of force that you use is likely to cause you a problem. either administratively, criminally, these are not the solutions to stemming the violent crime spike that we keep seeing in this nation. lawrence: sergeant, it doesn't make any sense, this is part of the strategy holding arms dealers responsible. law enforcement community resource. invest in community violence. opportunities for young adults. help formerly incarcerated individuals reenter their communities. again, talking about the root causes. sergeant, the plan is very simple. bring the police chief to the table with beat cops. bring a judge that is assigned to these cases and you bring the das together. they decide on a plan. get the warrants and start busting the doors down. making sure nobody's rights are
4:28 am
violated. why won't they do that? that's what is going to get these folks off the street. we know who they are. >> well, because we have awoke criminal justice system now. everybody keeps talking about how we have this systemically racist criminal justice system. what we have in these areas where crime is on the rise, we have awoke justice system so, forearm, in l.a., even if you arrest somebody for a gun crime, they may go to court, come out with an ankle bracelet until their trial. we all know the courts are backed up. because of covid. what we need to do is get them arrested, they need to stay in jail. we have got to get rid of this no cash bail that has been sweeping its way across the nation. then we have to prosecute them and have them spend time in prison. one of the best ways to get people to stop committing crime is to put them in prisons and make that a deterrent. there is no deterrent, lawrence, for committing violent crime
4:29 am
anymore in this country. you also, you know, we can have all kinds of community policing programs. we have had community policing since i was a child. i have been involved in law enforcement for 40 years. more community policing isn't going to help when people in the neighborhoods are told cops are racist. cops are bad. cops will kill you. it's extraordinary. honors lawrence sergeant, i support community policing and i support real criminal justice reform. when you have violent offenders on the street, the biggest threat to actual criminal justice reform is allowing these people back on the street. the fact that they can go into walgreen's and ransack it with no consequences that's the biggest problem. sergeant, thank you so much for your service. >> thank you. lawrence: you bet. help wanted signs seen just about everywhere on main street. one restaurant going so far to post a letter to customers thanking them for their patience. what can be done to get americans back to work. we die into that next

i think beginning with the clinton administration. we started to redefine what work is in the united states. and obama really started to change that dramatically. if you look at mcdonald's and counties like that, so many young people started there who are now franchisees. a guy by the name of ricky wade in the east coast of -- owns 30-something mcdonald's restaurants he started out as an hourly employee for goodness sake and rose to the top of the organization. so many stories like that. this redefinition of work is like, okay, let's go on tiktok or find an app. and we will just wiggle around and make a lot of money. it's insane what's going on right now. steve: well, you told one of our producers socialism has been sold as the answer and workers have no concept of the question. ed, do you see any parallels between what is going on in cuba and what is going on here in the
4:36 am
united states? >> no question about it. if anybody believes that socialism is the answer, look at cuba 90 miles away from miami, florida. and you will see what government oppression looks like. there has been 60 years of the castro family dominating that society and all those folks want is a fair chance to display their skills, their willingness to work, and an opportunity to come to the united states or anywhere that will give them the freedom to work hard for reward and that's the problem. why work hard when you're never rewarded. steve: yeah, no kidding. i was down in florida last week. i was at one of my favorite restaurants on the other side of florida on the east coast. and the waitress was telling us, said i asked if they were having trouble getting people to work. and she said all of our hostesses are 14 and 15-year-olds no adults will take those jobs but they have got to

us. as human beings, the dehumanization they are involved in, that's what we need to do. that's this generation's calling right now. every generation has a calling, this is ours. lawrence: you make the case in the book, and when i was at cpac, they've been worried about when our leaders are going to stand up and fight, but we want to get your comments on this, mark. when the left doesn't win, they want to -- steve: when the going gets tough -- lawrence: right. they just don't want to show up. texas has been embattled over voting legislation, and so the democrats decide to fuel up a private jet with no masks and go to washington instead of voting on the floor. what do you make of this? >> well, what do i make on this? i don't know what the power of the governor of texas is, but maybe he ought to consider some executive orders and maybe the republican majority a ought to start to change the rules. maybe they a ought to start thinking like schumer and pelosi and some of these other people look at ways and tactics to get around this. it's obvious that they don't believe in a representative

5:10 am
no voter id, although they have flip-flopped on that. now, listen, this isn't about voter integrity, this is about stealing elections, and i talk about this in the book too. just like communist parties all over the world, they don't want competition. they want to crush all opposition. they want to make the republican party an antique. that's exactly what they're trying to do. so elections don't matter. one-party rule, the way they've done it in california and some of these other states. this is -- and then they dress it up as something righteous and so forth. part of the problem we are is that our republican leaders don't know how to talk. they've been around decade after decade, they're marble mouths in z many respects, i'm just saying. they are fought this well, but they don't communicate with the american people. i just told you something in 20 seconds that they should be telling every single american, that the democrat party is not interested in minority votes. they're interested in democrat party votes. the democrat party is about the democrat party. it's not about the country.
5:11 am
that is another thing they have in common with these marxist movements. every country, cuba now, it's about the party, not the country. because the party is the country. you need allegiance to the party. that's what the american democrat party is doing right now. steve: and isn't it coincidental that those 58 texas legislators flew to washington, d.c. on the same day that the president and kamala harris were talking about voting integrity. kamala harris said yesterday, i believe in detroit, that fighting for the right to vote is as american as apple pie. nobody is taking away anybody's right to vote, mark. as republicans said, they're making it easier to vote and harder to cheat. and we're just coming out of this global pandemic, it's a once in a lifetime thing where different states enacted different guidelines on how to get people to the polls safely. a lot of the democrats want certain things, a lot of the republicans want other things,

and that's where -- >> let me ask you a question. where all these people can't work? all these media outlet ares, where are all these people who account no vote? we're not hearing from the grassroots, we're hearing from demagogue democrats who say they can't vote. anybody whoen wants to vote, they can vote. steve: i'll tell you where they are, they're in delaware. if you want to do early voting, you can't do it in delaware. in joe biden's home state there is no early voting. lawrence: and there was no pushback on that, mark, right? there's not a free press to desperate fact from -- separate fact from fiction. >> because -- you're right on. because, press, i looked at this too and this is in the book too, what is this press? who are these young guys and gals now who report to us? they believe in something called public journalism. you know what public journalism
5:13 am
is? it's social activism. you can't just report the news. you're a citizen, they say, and so you need to be, what? progressive. can you find a dime's worth of difference between most of the media and the democrat party agenda or these marxist movements? can you find a dime's worth of -- you'll find no difference. they are promoting the same agenda. they bring on these kook, unhinged professors, these clown authors who make millions and millions of dollar spewing their racist, marxist ideology. they're the people they bring because the media come from the same ideology as the rest of them. the media are corrupt. the best thing the american people can do is be very choosy in who you listen to and what you watch. ainsley: you think about the democrats who are more moderate, how are they going to vote in the next election? what does the midterm look like? you've got the olympic committee changing the flag, you have critical race theory, you've got
5:14 am
what's happening on the border, and the list goes on and on. >> yeah, because they destroy everything. it's a wrecking ball. i say joe biden is a human pandemic, his party is a human wrecking ball, and that's exactly what it is. tell me, those moderate democrats need to join us in this movement that's rising up to take this country back and protect our institutions. they never talk about individualism, they never talk about liberty, they never talk about unalienable rights, limited government. where do they get all these ideas about class warfare, victim, victor/oppressor? they didn't make them up. it's about time we call what is happening what it is. it's not in every respect technically marxism, but it's an americanized form of marxism. and as you'll see in the book, the scholar tell us that's what they're doing. lawrence: and, mark, it's not just the republicans. biden's literally -- they had a parade and all of a sudden the old deal was back on the table.
5:15 am
they seem to be naive on this fight. >> these are the useful idiots, in some cases useless idiot withs. they don't have any idea what's swirling around them. this is a battle for our country. everybody on the left, they wake up 24/7, they're trying to figure out how to rip down this country whether it's a monument, a book, a human being, whether it's a system or an institution. most of our people -- that is, red-blooded, hard working people -- they get up, they work, they take care of their family, they come home. on the other side, it's not the same thing for their activists. it's how do i destroy america. our republicans, they're like 1950s republicans. they don't have the foggiest idea what's going on in this country. i'm just hoping people, if you buy the book, hand it to the next guy, hand it to the next guy so as many people will read it as possible. steve: i don't think you want people to give it around, i think you want people the buy their own. [laughter]
5:16 am
very capitalistic. >> i want to spread the word. steve: no, i know. and the word is this in the very title, you know, "american marxism." you say marxism is already here. it's in the corporationses, it's in hollywood, it's in the party, democratic party, the biden presidency, and it's in the press. and of the press you write this: the press not only starts and prolongs quarrels, but thrives today on the exploitation of issues and agendas that serve the purposes of the various marxist movements. and in doing so, divides the entire nation along ideological lines, and that is where we are right now. we are split right down the middle. >> no question about it. and when you read the book, you'll see that people are behind critical theory which becomes critical race theory, you will see the people who are behind the radicalization of the immigration movement, you will see the people who are behind the degrowth movement which they
5:17 am
claim is climate change, the green new deal. you will see the people who are even behind the attack on what they call the social can construct; that is this transgenderrism movement. we're not getting involved in people's personal lives. we're the ones that say leave people alone in their bedroom. if they want to transgender, transgender. but why are you promoting this stuff? what's this all about? there's a reason for this. there's a reason for all of this stuff. it's not just happening. and many of us, you know, we sit there and say, oh, my god, what's going on to my country. where should we move, what should we do? i'm saying we are americans. we are americans of every faith, every race, every background. we believe in a color blind society. we believe in the founders, unlimited government. we believe in the individual and freedom, and it's about damn time we stand up. it is daunting, it is complex because it's from within, but we better call it what it is, act acknowledge what it is. and when i come under attack, which there's no question about it, this book is bulletproof
5:18 am
because i quote them and then i explain them. i quote them. there's more than 400 end notes in this book. that's why it took me a long time to write it. lawrence: that's right, mark. and we don't leave the country, we stay here and fight. we're not going to be like the democrats and flee somewhere else instead of taking it head on. mark, thank you so much for coming on the program today. >> thank you, guys. thanks for the time. god bless. ainsley: god bless you too, mark. thank you. steve: sunday night, 8 p.m., and it is currently the number one book on amazon -- lawrence: as expected. steve: it is called "american marxism" by mark he visible. ainsley: all right. ashley has some headlines. >> reporter: hey, guys. johnson and johnson and astrazeneca are looking to possibly modify its covid vaccine, scientists will research ways to reduce the risk of blood clots as the fda issues a warning about a possible link
