2:14 am
it would be nonstop, asking why this is going on so they don't have anything to hide then why aren't they releasing the information to the public as to who is paying half $1 million to somebody who has never been an artist before who happens to be the son of the president of the united states and find out who it is, to show that is nothing unethical or illegal going on. >> this goes beyond this fails to pass the smell test. what are the actual red flags that you think republicans are looking for with regard to all of these individuals, hunter, the brother and sister? >> you can't be paying off family members for some type of government action. hunter biden's father is the president of the united states and if there are foreign actors or foreign leaders, china for example russian oligarch paying 500,$000 directly to hunter
2:15 am

2:16 am
is not going to work out well for them politically. we as a country have to stand with the cuban people. the cubans waving american flags are acting more patriotic than americans in america calling to dismantle our systems of government and defund the police and the socialized system and hearing nothing from democrat socialists in the house about what is happening in cuba. people are starving, they don't have healthcare, we as americans need to stand for freedom and stand with the cuban people being oppressed by a communist regime. todd: i don't understand why can't this administration just say communism bed which has been the point of our country, one of the bulwarks of our country literally since our founding. >> they can't because progressives want socialism and communism in our country, the far left fringe of this party, if they say that.
2:17 am
carley: trump won florida in 2020 and it would be a political win for biden, imagine if he helped liberate cuba how politically advantageous that would be for him in a swing state? so far he has taken a more muted tone with calls for greater action on this front. thank you for joining us. appreciate it. todd: time is 17 after the hour. a year of nonstop rioting, murders up 500% since last year. portland, oregon - julio rosa spent a lot of time outside the federal courthouse. he only visits portland for work. carley: marijuana convictions could go up in smoke nationwide. new legislation senate democrats just rolled out. ♪♪

2:20 am
2:21 am
>> former united nations ambassador nikki haley slamming the biden administration for inviting the un to investigate human rights violations in the us. >> you've got people being bullied and beaten on the streets of cuba, venezuelans arresting political protesters all of which biden chooses to sit with on the human rights
2:22 am
council and the us is asking the united nations, a cesspool of political bias to come into the united states and investigate us on human rights? we look so ridiculous in the eyes of the world right now. >> haley's comments come after anthony blinken said he would invite experts and hopefully ask them to report and advise on human rights issues in the us. would you want your kid taking a course called abolish the police this fall? davidson college so the class will look at the relationship between black people and police in the us and use, quote, black political and feminist theories to critically examine issues of race criminalization and incarceration. carley: despite a year of violent protests and dangerous crime portland, oregon has been named one of the best places to live in the united states according to a new report from u.s. news & world report which touts the city's quote shameless wild side. the writer for visited portland many times to cover those riots and he joins us now. very good news from portland, one of the best places to live.
2:23 am
we recommend moving there? >> know i wouldn't. i have been going to the city pretty consistently since 2019, no city is perfect but every time i've gone back to portland it seems it has gotten worse, not just because of the riots but even with the homelessness problem and crime is it is unfortunate because i am told that it was once a really great city to live in but then progressive politics has gotten itself into what i call a hamster wheel of self-destruction so we've seen a great city fall victim to its own population's way of wanting to do politics and that is how things are today. i'm pretty shocked it managed to get into the number 10 spot. >> you have friends that have moved out of portland. was were their reasons for moving? >> anecdotally i know a few
2:24 am
people who moved out of portland, lifelong residents, the riots last year were the final straw, the cost of living has gone up pretty significantly as well. is one thing to have violent crime on the rise but when you have a significant second of the population willing to riot night after night after night like we saw last year that doesn't bode well because some of the people who moved out have family and kids to take care of. carley: portland has a commercial to drum up tourism. let's listen to that right now. >> we are not perfect but we are the kind of place where you don't have to be anyone but yourself. we have the loudest voices on the west coast. it goes all the way up. we have always been like this.
2:25 am
carley: to your point, check out these crime statistics. homicides up 533%, shootings up 126% so those stats do not match the cheery nature of that ad. >> that is the unfortunate side effect of whitewashing the reality of the city because he knows and people who have nothing to do with protesting that day, they get caught up in the mix whether getting harassed at their own home or the local businesses are damaged because they are fighting corporate capitalism. there is no reason they should feel the need to hide what is happening because everyone knows. i have a friend traveling to
2:26 am
portland today who said they warned him how unsafe portland has gotten so it is not just me saying it but other people who live in this space as well. jillian: i or why u.s. news & world report would put portland on the list when you consider the crime statistics we just showed. they can't possibly be unaware of it. are they just covering and saying there may be crime but also food seeds? >> i like to visit certain foods but again i am shocked and would love to see what they took into consideration considering there are other great cities. carley: portland is a beautiful place going through a difficult time because of progressive policies that damaged the city. thank you for shining a light on what is going on.
2:27 am
appreciate it. todd: and if that commercial doesn't get you to hop on i don't know what will. to we talk about chicago but the murder rate in rochester, new york outpacing the windy city. we break down the disturbing new data with a retired rochester police officer and the person convicted of killing molly to bits as the case turns around. there we go. look for this in-store display of king's hawaiian hamburger and hotdog buns for a chance to win a flavortown-inspired hawaiian getaway. can i get another restock on king's hawaiian bread? again. everything's better between king's hawaiian bread.

2:35 am
albany and acting bad reform, the same time period, this has caused the perfect storm to hit cities in new york. there is no accountability for carrying legal handguns and you have police officers that don't feel supported that contacting policing to not exist anymore. the way you get guns off the street is proactive policing and that no longer exists. todd: let's look at the comparison between rochester and chicago, homicides per 100,000 people and you see 18 per 100,000 in rochester, per 100,000 in chicago. here's what the mayor has to say, quote, these horserace statistics have provided a sense of fascination among media news organizations continue to ignore the historic source of these trends the true consequence of which cannot be measured in numbers. is a statement like that helpful in solving the problem?
2:36 am
>> know, it's not. because of the problem is what i just mentioned which includes democrat leadership in urban cities and leadership has supported the criminals and emboldened them. that is the cause in spite of this. we have had issues in urban cities for a long time but it took bail reform and attacking police officers to cause this huge spike to occur. todd: the situation throughout the country. a little bit of a surprise that rochester has numbers like that. hopefully you can get those numbers down. we appreciate your time this morning. carley: marijuana convictions could go up in smoke across the united states. senate democrats unveiling a bill that would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level.

>> in a report on america's other health crisis the opioid epidemic, overdose deaths hit
2:49 am
record levels during the pandemic. todd: doctor mark siegel, how much i pandemic lockdowns to blame, how do we reverse the trends? >> they are hugely to blame. it is about isolation. the national institute of drug abuse, it is all about being isolated and the structure of your lives being torn down and you don't have the structure of people and engagements, turning to crutches like alcohol and drugs, 60% of drug abuse deaths, 90,000, the most ever were due to fentanyl. the one connection people have is to their drug dealer and fentanyl causes tremendous overdoses, 50 times more powerful than morphine. this will reverse but this collateral damage we've been talking about for months and
2:50 am
months and months is the cause. >> it is an unintended consequence and those numbers are so sad. that's talk about the delta variant, mississippi health officials are warning about it because 7 kids in the icu, two of those children are on ventilators so what do parents need to know as it affects children? >> the delta variant is of concern because it is tilting younger, most hospitalizations and deaths are people who haven't been vaccinated so everybody has to use the delta variant as a wake-up call to get two shots of an mrna vaccine that totally covers the variant, prevent you from severe illness and hospitalization.
2:51 am
for kids that can't vaccinated where there is a lower vaccination rate like mississippi some areas as low as 15% those kids could be protected by everyone around them being vaccinated. it is my plea for months. i'm an enormous fan of this vaccine. it is very very safe. way more effective than we were expecting a huge tool here. todd: moderna launching clinical trials whether it's vaccine leads to miscarriages or stillbirths in pregnant women or birth defect in newborns despite thousands of mothers receiving the shot. how worried should expectant mothers be if they've gotten the moderna vaccine? >> they should be much more worried about getting covid. covid itself causes miscarriages, side effects, way more likely a severe case of covid if you are pregnant but if you've got the vaccine or did well with it, you are in great shape.
2:52 am
for people who are considering it i wish they'd gotten it before. more studies should have been done earlier. i believe it is safe during pregnancy but don't have as much as we shouldn't we should have had it earlier on. what we have look safe. it is certainly safer than covid. jillian: thank you. >> 52 after the hour. britney spears scoring a major victory in court landing her own lawyer and calling for charges against her father. >> jonas lays out the arm wrestling match the comes next. ♪♪ ♪♪ would you hold it against me ♪♪

do you have a life insurance policy you no longer need? now you can sell your policy, even a term policy, for an immediate cash payment. call coventry direct to learn more. we thought we had planned carefully for our retirement. but we quickly realized that we needed a way to supplement our income. our friends sold their policy to help pay for their medical bills and that got me thinking. maybe selling our policy could help with our retirement. i'm skeptical, so i did some research and called coventry direct. they explained life insurance is a valuable asset that can be sold. we learned
2:55 am
that we can sell all of our policy or keep part of it with no future payments, who knew? we sold our policy. now we can .
2:56 am
. todd: a maim victory for brittany spears, winning the conservatorship battle against her dad. carley: here to break it down jonna spilbor. doing cart wheels, she is able to choose her own lawyer. she chose matthew rosengart. what does this mean for her case overall? >> so, this is really interesting because technically, not a lot happened in court yesterday except for the fact that she, britney, is now allowed to retain her own private counsel, which means
2:57 am
there is a new sheriff in town. that's a huge win for britney. because she is finally going to have a voice. and we know based on her impassioned plea a few weeks ago in court what her end game is. she wants to get out from under this conservatorship and she has a few choice words for her father. this attorney has vowed to only ask in britney's interest as any attorney should. so what i think is going to happen from this point forward, her attorney is going to say to daddy spears, do you want to do this the easy way or hard way? and they can start negotiating to get britney out from under this conservatorship. if that doesn't work, then he will file a petition for the same thing. todd: as for the dad, britney has said she wants her dad charged with abuse. again, this has nothing to do with her attorney. it has everything to do with the l.a. county d.a. do you see any charges attaching to jamie spears? >> yeah. now, that is really interesting. i don't know if britney and her
2:58 am
new lawyer might use that as a negotiation tool to say, listen, if we can all go to our respective corners quoitly, we are not going to bring charges, we want to have britney's life back. a d.a. might get wind of this and say we are under a duty to investigate whether there was fish your wrong doing here. there is a lot of finger pointing to go around here. judges can't really do anything unless there is a petition 'before them. that's not always true. judges can act on their own sui sponte. something was wrong over the last dozen years, they should have done something about this, too. she is not just a money making machine she is an actual person. i hope something does happen here. carley: absolutely. let's talk about this twist in the mollie tibbetts trial. the man who was found guilty of murdering mollie tibbetts was supposed to be sentenced to life in prison without parole this
2:59 am
week. but, the judge delayed that sentencing because two people who apparently don't know each other came forward and said actually this other guy confessed to murdering mollie tibbetts. it's not the person that was found guilty of murdering her. how sear crewsly are you taking these claims? >> no. this is also another fascinating point. because these are two jail house snitches, basically. as if the story can't get any more unbelievable. i mean, look, the history is cristhian rivera first said he confessed that he did it. then at trial he was like, well, i don't really think it was me. two people hijacked me they did and it i disposed of the body. now we go with a third version of events. i don't believe it but the judge is doing the right thing by basically reopening the case, not sentencing him yet. he may be subject to a new trial depending on the credibility of this new jail house snitch information. so we're going to have to wait and see on that one.
