[national anthem] [national anthem]
3:01 am
[national anthem] rachel: good morning, everybody. welcome to "fox & friends." it's 6:00 eastern time. and that was the national anthem by the coast guard band. you wanted an anthem, pete. we agreed. now we got it new york city wer. whole country. pete: now that we are doing it one shot in austin. stayed on a little too long. i want about four seconds across
3:02 am
the country so we are playing it like we are waking up the entire nation. rachel: i like that idea. will: i agree with that from sea to shining sea across the great plains. a shot of austin, texas, the statue of liberty and the streets of new york city. pete: i will take it. will: welcome to "fox & friends" on this saturday. days after the white house revealed in some shocking statements from jen psaki that it was consulting with facebook to flag problematic posts and then revealed that if you ever banned from one in their estimation you should be banned from all social media platforms. joe biden added this as to why the government seems to be, not just flagging, not just colluding but encouraging social media to censor its information. watch this. >> what's your message to platforms like facebook? >> >> they are killing people. i mean, they really -- look, the only pandemic we have is among
3:03 am
the unvaccinated. and that's -- and they're killing people. will: they are killing people. the social media platforms by allowing certain information to reach your eyes and your ears are killing people. rachel: that was a worried, i'm sorry, we can't let a clip like that go and not mention, were his teeth falling out? we were talking about. pete: something is going on there. rachel: something is not right about this. these are searly serious topics. pete: i also don't know. rachel: that's what his answer was. pete: i don't know that he knew or intentionally meant or wanted to say that facebook was killing people. that probably wasn't part of the talking point after the love fest that the two of them but they are like, scorned lovers at this point. here is facebook shooting back, facebook official spoke to nbc news and said this. in private exchanges, the surgeon general has praised our work including our efforts about covid-19. they knew what they were too
3:04 am
long. the white house is looking for scapegoats for missing their vaccine goals. now they are sniping at each other a little bit. will, you hit the nail on the head. the crazy part of it this week the crazy admissions from the white house podium. we are directing facebook to do the following about misinformation, which is the most dangerous word in our political lexicon right now. this idea of misinformation. it is orwellian double speak. it's sufficiently ambiguous that anything can fall underneath it facebook puts out a statement right after that, not this one the other one saying absolutely we are. here is the number of people we censored. here is the number of people we banned. that is the government telling private companies and believing that all of them should in lock step take their orders from washington. will: that's the tone i want to hear. i understand your comments about that video. i don't want to be sanguine in any way about the language coming from the white house. whether joe biden was on the talking points or not. whether he had his wits about him when he said that facebook and social media platforms are killing people. let's be very clear the united
3:05 am
states government right now is encouraging the thought police. rachel: yes. will: you can say that hyper ventilating. hyperbole. the canary in the coal mine is dead. you are listening to the united states government unless you are in lock step with their opinion and i don't want to hear about vaccine disinformation or misinformation. i have heard hunter's atlanta misinformation. covid it theories called conspiracy theories. i do not trust these people to tell me what should and should not be heard by the american people. this is a major deal in my stems. rachel: it's interesting because this week i was in miami. we have the crisis in cuba. so much of what -- how they are trying to control their people is through the internet that is the new public square. and we're seeing this happen in our own country. you know, last night on tucker, tucker was -- i went on your show to talk about cuba and tucker, an hour later saying hey, why are we talking about cuba we have problems in our own country. we should talk about both.
3:06 am
our country, we are losing our liberties. if we don't have free speech. we're in trouble as a democracy. and i want to tell you there is a poll that i just saw 40% of young people think that we need to monitor speech. that free speech can be dangerous. it's not just a problem for us right now. we are not even teaching our own children the value and the importance of free speech in a democracy. what does this mean for the future of america? will: free speech makes america exceptional. pete has a book out modern crusade. talk about modern civilization. talk about in canada and u.k. do not honor free speech the way we do. don't take this concept for granted it is part of how society has evolved. we are literally the only one that values frew free speech in this way. it doesn't appear we are going to for much longer. pete: including unpopular and dangerous speech. that's the speech that deserves and needs the most protection
3:07 am
because it's the one that is most likely banned the quickest. speaking of banning, you remember donald trump was banned from facebook and he sued facebook and othersome companies. his arguments was social media companies had become the de facto of the government. the white house has created plenty of exhibits for them. john yoo he was on fox news at night on our program on our network talking about that. listen. >> i would not recommend facebook do this. but the more facebook listens to the government. the more facebook tries to carry out a government's agenda about a speech. the more president trump could win what is a very low probability lawsuit because they're creating what's called state action and when facebook and the government cooperate, then facebook has to obey the same rules as the government. and the best and most important one is the free speech clause. do not discriminate on the basis of speech.
3:08 am
pete: that's right. here is the scary part about it covid is going to be a campaign issue. , it is, how it's hanged of handled, vaccine mandates. mask mandates all of that watch facebook and it of what candidates can say and whether it's misinformation on the campaign trail. scary. rachel: we allow facebook and these platforms to ban alex jones and myelo and knew sitting u.s. president. now they are saying they can ban all of us. this is the slippery slope we should have said not one. just with the statues. i'm not defending confederate soldiers. not one. once you start this thing continues on. will: one more unpopular opinion i think we should all be allowed to wear headphones on television. maybe it's the radio guy in me i like head joans on john yoo there in that clip. pete: good audio. another topic we have talked about is critical race theory and parents standing up. a lot of it has happened in virginia whether it's loudoun county or fairfax virginia where
3:09 am
in fairfax they are trying to push curriculums that include critical race theory. parents have stood up and fought back. there was a counter rally to that rally. meaning the unions and the pta and teachers went out and had their own rally pushing back against the parents who don't like critical race theory. one of the speakers there, michelle leete, a member of the naacp in virginia as well as an official with the pta. she took to the microphone and said the following about anti-critical race theory. listen to this. >> let them die. these anti-teacher, anti-equity, antihistory, anti-racial equity. anti-opportunity. anti-help people. anti-diversity
3:10 am
let them die. [cheers and applause] pete: you may have missed but you probably heard it right. let them die. rachel: then cheering. i assume those are other parents around there or, you know,. pete: teachers, it union members, whatever it was. rachel: cheering about it did you a great segment last night. you had the parents who recorded nomoni and this is what she had to say about that we couldn't believe the words coming out of her mouth and then the audience, you know, the cheers were so disturbing. because i know many of those people. it was the entire machine that is trying to hijack schools across america.
3:11 am
we witnessed the real anti- that is happening now. it is anti-parent. there is war on parents happening from see to shining see. it's only the courage of parents that are going to be able to stand up to this divisive ideology. will: at some point that becomes absurd. that's a character of a video. great job this week by the way on "fox news primetime." it absolutely phenomenal. great interview there as well anti, anti, anti. we make a joke when you are anti-football. they're leaning into the character turf of who they are and punctuate it with less than thy. she pointed out the true anti-is is that parent. pete: she used the phrase anti-henning people. what is anti-helping people. will: whatever they disagree with. rachel: very disturbing tiktok video came out maybe four weeks ago or so, it was a teacher
3:12 am
somewhere in texas, these parents who are trying to stop us from teaching crt. these are our kids. we need to do it. here's what concerns me. you talk about anti-parent. that no matter what we do as a school board and we should do what we are doing as parents to stop crt legislatively, whatever, we really can't monitor everything that's in the classroom. those sound like very radical activists. the teachers that were probably applauding that lady. and so i don't trust them with my kids. there were conversations about whether we should have cameras in the school. in the classroom. so parents could weigh in. look and see what's being taught. but i think in the short run, school boards are good. but we need deal with our teachers, colleges, and in the end the real long-term solution is going to be school choice. pete: you are right have to get them out. control. pete: were they teachers radicals or lemmings. i have got clap here it's
3:13 am
critical race theory. a lot of them are just going along to get along. will: read this tweet responding to asra. ha happy to contribute in any way red meat. must be tiresome to keep the foe anti-whatever can. pete: the anti-lady anti-whatever? will: parents just a little bit later this morning. starting with a fox news alert. police arrest a man wanted in the brazen attempted kidnapping in new york city. he is behind bars now facing several charges. police say he is the man scene n this surveillance video snatch ago 5-year-old boy off a sidewalk and stuffing him in a car in broad daylight. fortunately the boy's mother was there and pulled her son out before the car could speed off. police say he had an accomplice who is still on the run. u.s. justice department officials delayed investigation

into hunter biden to keep it from the public during the 2020 election. politico reporting, quote, last summer, prosecutors have sought search warrants. they had already sought and this issued a flurry of grand jury subpoenas. this is before the election. but, they were told not to release that information over fears the investigation could influence the 2020 presidential election. so, in other words, they didn't issue the warrants or the subpoenas. they kept it quiet until the election was over. probe is underway over hunter biden's business dealings and possible tax law violations. nfl quarterback baker mayfield has a beef, of course he does with the texan longhorns. is he an oklahoma sooner. i don't know where this is going but i will read and it a beef with the big 12 conference. trolled the team and the conference with these photos after the big 12 started are penalizing the horns down time. some warned he might be offended

3:19 am
with. president obama said he couldn't do it. it wasn't legal to do it and he did it anyways. this is a job for congress to do. the president can't come up executive order and award legal status in a country for 800,000 people. can't do it. that's not a part of his job it's a part of congress' job. even the advocates are saying now. read 100 newspapers in the last 24 hours. they are all saying congress needs to fix it they are knitting this is congress' job. let's remember, when they passed daca in fy 12 what happened in 1, 14, and 15. hundreds of family units came with their children to be part of the daca program or the next daca program. rachel: also looking at new numbers showing that migrant encounters in june rose to nearly 190,000 bringing the total to more than a million this fiscal year. i remember back in february that the biden administration was saying hey, this is seasonal. but the numbers are higher now
3:20 am
it's getting higher. >> the biden administration has been lying to the american people since day one. every month he has been president. every single month the number has gone higher and higher and higher. that's a failure. this administration doesn't care about illegal imforeign relation. this is open borders agenda. homeland security asking this. if illegal doesn't matter does covid matter. 7500 covid cases in the custody of ice. hundreds released into the united states knowingly by this administration. does terror watch lists people being arrested on the border does that matter. 900,000 fentanyl overdose death in this country matter? fentanyl comes across the border. does 8,000 criminal aliens arrested by. does 2,000 got-aways already this year. we don't know who they are. are they drug dealers? are they gang members? are they terrorists? who are they? we don't know. do they have covid? we don't know. does that matter? because, if any of this matters, then they need to do their job
3:21 am
and secure the border. and if they can't figure out, bring me back. i will fix it in a week. it isn't hard. the trump administration did it. they can do. they don't want to do it. this is open borders agenda. rachel: you mentioned the fentanyl. if i can get my producers to get the numbers because i thought that was fascinating. they moved it june 1,060 pounds. january to june 52,908 -- 5,298,000 pounds were seized. we we are talking about a lot of fentanyl as you said are kill americans, you know, 93,000 this year. so, huge numbers. every fentanyl that the death in the united states, i don't care if it's ohio, new york, chicago. you need to be assured that fentanyl came across the southern border. rachel: tom homan, have you always been on the forefront of this. see if there is enough pressure for the biden administration to do something but it doesn't look like it.

3:27 am
things that they deem wrong, negative and extreme, you know, evil. and so if you have a certain perspective, within a culture of your company, and you deem something that is wrong, then if you have the power to eliminate it, you know, would you and so, you know, this was never asked when he were building these systems and integrating them into every aspect of our life. now our life is controlled by these companies, whether it's your business, how you consume your news or entertainment. and now we're faced with, say, the pandemic and a number of other large issues. and they say, look, we can fix this we can solve this for you. they stepped in when the government didn't know what to do in the early parts of the pandemic. look, we got this. will: matthew, that's an answer that i don't disagree with i'm just curious here, that's an ideological answer. in other words, facebook, imool, they believe in what they are doing. is there a cynical explanation as well are they trying to

government regulations trying to push more government controls on censorship? are they trying to get in front of that? >> well, you know, these companies whether it's google or facebook or amazon, they are monopolies and what is the primary goal of monopoly? that's to maintain a monopoly. so, forever and ever and ever they will always do what's in their best interest. so people who use these products should always understand that it's not in your best interest. you are the product. and so that will always be their goal. will: get this quickly before we lose you. here is facebook want statement on working with the white house. will not be distracted by accusations which aren't supported by fact. the fact is that more than 2 billion people have viewed the authoritative information about covid-19 on facebook more than any other place on the internet. more than 3.3 million americans have used our vaccine tool finder this statement is in response to joe biden suggesting that social media is killing people.

really quickly, i have 30 second here, matthew, where do you think this is headed? now it's, quote, misinformation, disinformation. where is this censorship positioning headed? >> this is the most dangerous precedent that can be set to have big government and big business merge together. i mean, that is 20th century classical fascism and people should be very, very concerned about where this is headed in the future. will: it really is a pandora's box it has no end what could be called misinformation. what could be classified disinformation and therefore, booted from the public square. i think we are beginning to get the answer to those questions. matthew taylor, thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you. will: straight ahead, rachel visited the heart of the cuban community in the united states, which is in miami. the message from american standing in solidarity with cubans, fighting for freedom. coming up. >> what's your message to your mother.

they float balloons, turn the u.s. embassy into a hot spot so people can a, organize and b put out these videos showing the kind of repression they are getting. there are some videos already. we are seeing teenage boys being dragged out of their homes and being forced to go into the military against their will, against the will of their families. beatings, killings, bits and pieces coming out. but we need more information and that's going to be the key to keeping this protest, this rally, this call for liberty. pete: this movement. rachel: this movement. it's not about the embargo. people are not on the street talking about the embargo. nobody is talking about covid. it's about liberty and anger at the communist regime. >> pete: so well done and what a reminder ideas have consequence as we debate who we are here as marxism arrives on the shores and anyplace a at the margins what's acceptable and not acceptable. all of that feels both small and
3:39 am
bigger because of this. small in comparison to what the cuban people face. real repression every day 90 miles from our shore. ideals have consequences but big because over time if you allow those forces to take hold, the things we take for granted, those precious things can slip away. will: not just an idea. that's what is fascinating while bernie sanders or blm may issue statements on the idea of socialism and communism. what you show in that package it's real people who have experienced this life who have relatives who have suffered under these types of systems. i find it fascinating how dismissive people are. real world experience was seen a documentary or read the right book or whatever they may have been taught. that likens them to dismiss completely the people you just highlight who has family 90 miles off that florida coast who actually lived this idea. rachel: yeah. it's really will awful. pete: most of the images we have right now are from sunday because the crackdown has been

than 54 grand, $54,000 to a new york based firm for security services between april and june. and $15,000 to nathaniel davis for security services over the same time period. payments amount to more than a third bush's campaign expenditures during the second quarter according to fec filing. no police for you, plenty of security for her. now, marine expert, they want to replace shark attack with a much nicer term. >> if i am to change this image. i must change my job. fish are friends. not food. pete: advocates are looking to switch the term of shark attack to shark encounter. negative encounter or shark bite because sharks are curious fish and not looking to consume people. will: but that's true. rachel: do sharks care whether
3:42 am
we say attack or bite? will: no. they do not. rachel: or encounter? will: to your point we do not. and i don't think we care once we have a leg amputated. i can see making the case it's true. they are not trying to eat you. no matter what jaws taught you. they are nibbling you as a test tastiest tester to find out if you are a seal. once you are not they leave out thereof having left you one less leg and you have every right to call it an attack.

changing of the trump policy disaster tom homan i interviewed him earlier today and here is what he had to say. >> the biden administration has been lying to the american people since day one. every month he has been president, every single month the number has gone higher and higher and higher. that's a failure. this administration doesn't care about illegal immigration it's open borders agenda. nearly 8,000 criminal aliens arrested why the border patrol gang members and drug dealers, does that matter? then they need to do their job and secure the border. and if they can't figure out, bring me back, i will fix it in a week. it isn't hard, the trump administration did it they can do it but they don't want to do it. this is open borders agenda. will: 300,000 last year. 1.1 million this year. it's a crisis. whether or not it's covered or acknowledged by the administration or not it is a crisis. rachel: what were the numbers you gave the other day about the cities that this number creates, like this many people. will: oh in one month here we are looking at in june of 2021,
4:05 am
188,000 people or 188,000 encounters at the border. that's the size of about waco, texas coming over in one month. pete: saint paul, minnesota. it's every single month. by the way, tucker covered it a little bit on his show i know for a fact there is more information coming about it as well as far as the it extent to which the government and military are facilitating the transfer of these migrants without the country in the middle of the night through contracted flights to a community near you. rachel: telling the military, soldiers who are there, don't say anything. you are not allowed to talk about it. pete: of course. will: on to another crisis, this is the way los angeles has chosen to handle the covid-19 outbreak. what's fascinating is the city of los angeles has reinstituted their mask mandate, starting tonight, i believe. saturday night they will reinstitute their indoor mask mandate for vaccinate and unvaccinated people alike. that seems to go against the
4:06 am
science. that's been noted by the los angeles county sheriff's department. sheriff alexville know ava has said the follow about enforcing mask mandate. forcing the vaccinated and those who already contracted covid-19 to wear mask indoors is simply not backed by science and contradicts the u.s. centers for disease control and disease prevention. the department of public health has authority to enforce the order but the under funded defunded los angeles county sheriff's department will not expand our limited resources instead ask for voluntary compliance. l.a. county sheriff's office will not enforce the new reinstatued l.a. mask mandate. pete: he got a lot of shots in there and rightfully so. we are in a place where our sheriffs have to be our defactor science to look at what is happening because we are looking backwards. the it will delta variant and they're worried about that, suddenly now more people vaccinated l.a. wants to put you back in a mask indoors? rachel: do you know what's weird
4:07 am
they are talking about the delta variant and saying this is the reason why we need to really get more people to be vaccinated or more mask mandates. do you think it's weird they never brought up the early treatments with regard to this new delta variant? again, we know these early treatments work we now know from studies and also the evidence that we saw of the use of ivermectin it does work. why -- they are talking about misinformation about it, refuse to talk about people who already had covid. pete: the sheriff did. rachel: he did. i'm talking about health officials, the mayors, the governors i'm very fearful they are going to mask our kids again this fall. i have already heard parents say heard administrators say we cut down on colds and flu this is so great. i'm afraid they are going to
4:08 am
mask our kids again. this is a sign to me we are not going to get out of this. pete: will, we were talking about it in a break. the left is having a great deal of trauma and trouble getting over their moral peer or the and the tier do you signaling and control that comes with any level of covid protocol. lockdowns and mask mandates. vaccines, pushing covid misinformation. they are working with facebook to shut you down. they will probably censor what you just said if someone puts it on the internet it feels unrelenting and you said it you are right. it almost feels like we are going backwards. how are we rewinding here. will: conversation feels like we were seven month ago. look at any chart on coronavirus tracking. even if you just limit it to los angeles county. it's true that infections seem to have tracked up in the last week or. so last two weeks. but it is still over the past year at really, really low numbers compared to where we have been. that isn't even taking noah a count hospitalizations and deaths which were not at all time lows but just above all-time lows. yet, the conversation we are
4:09 am
having feels like we are in the midst of a new huge peak in the coronavirus and reverting to the measures we used at that time whether or not it be masks and where do we go from here back to lockdowns? i don't know what. the it feels like the conversation doesn't reflect reality. rachel: doesn't reflect that 99.% of people will not die from this disease. especially children. this is just crazy. the head of the former white house coronavirus task force admiral brett giroir this is what he had to say about it. >> from a public health and science standpoint, let me be clear, if you are fully vaccinated, you are protected against the virus including the delta variant. and you are extraordinarily unlikely to be able to spread it, even if you get a mild case. so there is no scientific justification for this. i think this is just another example of california and los angeles flailing. they don't have a direction in their policy. we have seen that they had some of the most draconian measures but still had the worst rates.
4:10 am
this will do nothing aside from undermining people's motivation to get vaccinated. and i would urge everyone in california, yes, please get vaccinated because it is good protection. if you are not vaccinated voluntarily, wear a mask to protect yourself until you get vaccinated. rachel: when you see people like john kerry and democrats who got on that plane without a mask and nancy pelosi getting her hair cut without a mask. pete: texas democrats fleeing. rachel: they don't believe this so i just keep asking why. i have the same question everybody who is watching. why do they want us in masks when the science has proven that the masks don't actually protect you from covid? will: really fascinating. rachel: it has to be social control or something. will: here is another question does the vaccine work? why would a vaccinated person need to wear a mask. rachel: by the way, people who have had vaccine more likely to be infected than people who had
4:11 am
covid. pete: all we wanted was a choice. i remember the harrowing moment when someone said early, early on we are not going to get out of this until there is a vaccine. thank goodness donald trump focused on it with operation warp speed. now we are with vaccine and that's not sufficient. always something else. rachel: we are going it turn now to some of our headlines, starting with a fox news alert. a 6-year-old girl is killed and five others are hurt in a washington, d.c. shooting. the gunfire erupted at this intersection last night. it's unclear what led to the incident and a suspect has not yet been identified. little details have been released. but police say they are searching for a dark colored vehicle. the five people hurt are expected to recover, thankfully. lawmakers urge president biden to meet with the run away texas democrats while they are in washington. the texas democratic congressional delegation sent a letter to the president asking him to speak with the members of about federal voting right legislation. the texas democrats have been in d.c. for nearly a week breaking

4:18 am
is going to make it worse. i think a lot of americans understand prices might be a little crazy when you are coming out of an economic shutdown, but what they don't understand is way to this administration want to pour fuel on that fire that's what worries me. the biden administration is not taking this seriously. i don't think chairman jay powell at the fed is taking this seriously. you have got this administration that talks about not raising tacks on the middle class, i'm sorry, if you are presiding over inflation like this, you are absolutely raising taxes on the working class. hitting people very hard right now. pete: ultimately the most regressive tax can you have is inflation. these spending bills should they do it, 3.5 trillion in reconciliation. i mean, they have to understand that that kind of money printing is only going to accelerate this. >> you know what? politicians at the end of the day have an addiction to inflation because, when you are
4:19 am
spending, spending, spending, and you have got all this debt, inflation helps erode the cost of the debt. that's the problem right now. democrats are spending like crazy. the inflation actually helps them pay down and handle that debt, so to speak. so, jay powell at the fed is in this really tough spot. he really should be rolling back or hiking up interest rates and rolling back money printing, but he has got the problem that we have got all this debt right now. we're backed into a corner. we're backed into a corner by bad policy and the biden administration just wants to pretend it's not there, and what they're totally ignoring is that they are hurting the very middle class americans that they are handing out money to with the other hand. pete: got to get your comment on one more thing because you see it everywhere. you see it everywhere you go. restaurants, there is barely anybody working. there is a few people working, customer service is nonexistent
4:20 am
in some places. new data shows that 1.8 million americans turned down jobs due to generous unemployment benefits that's according to a morning consult poll, does this surprise you. >> no, it doesn't surprise me. i will tell you, pete, that number almost certainly understates the problem. it's not just about people turning down jobs. it's about who is not going tout find jobs. people need to be going out and creating opportunities. you are not doing that when those checks are rolling in the door. this is a big problem. it's one of the big reasons we have an inflation problem right now. talk to any business. i will tell you what is so condescending from the biden administration is they will not acknowledge the gravity of this issue that businesses face. they are talking about it all the time but they are pretending it's not there. pete. we have got stop pretending we don't have these problems. we have serious problems. we have got start addressing them. pete: what they do best is ignoring the obvious problem that's in front of them and obsess over whatever the left want the most.

4:26 am
overwhelmingly white. she doesn't represent the black community when she is speaking in her capacity as an naacp member. to be clear, i'm not speaking as n. my capacity of the psa. i'm speaking as parent and concerned father. these comments are inappropriate. it's actions of-when you look at the actions they have taken against thomas jefferson pta association. we disagree with crt. it's toxic to our children. what they think of us before we even had a chance to even sit to have our first meeting they intend to revoke our charter. now they want to put us on probation and to install crt babysitters sit in all of our executive board members and suppress the voice of our parents in our schools and community. rachel: she was anti-everything except anti-parent which is appears to be and some of these teachers think that they, you know, that these are their kids.
4:27 am
one of the things that concerns me, elizabeth, is that you know, when you see someone so ideological like this, that even if you are successful as parents, in getting crt out of your school or passing some sort of rules, laws, legislation in the state, whatever, that this kind of ideology is so strong that you are not really going to be able to be confident that these teachers aren't injects their ideology into their classrooms. >> well, let me start from the top and as a former fairfax county school board member, i'm really just stunned at the silence of this school board, the naacp, of the virginia pta but i'm not surprised. you know, this is what we are seeing and school boards, this school board, loudoun county and across the country what we are seeing is a school board of mentality that is ideologically driven. that is agenda driven that it isn't about the education of our children.
4:28 am
and it certainly isn't about listening to parents is and so this is what is being echoed. rachel: political is the answer to get cameras into the classroom so you can know what's going on? >> as a parent of a current child, i'm not sure how i feel about cameras in the classroom. i think that eyes on the school board room are much more important. parents have to get involved in their local school board. they have to be watching them. advocating for them and running to take back school boards. that's how we begin to change education in america put it back in the parents' hands and back in the hands of common sense. rachel: well, we did reach out to the virginia pta. they gave us this statement about michelle lete. virginia pta is aware of disturbing choice of words used by a board member during pta event. board members will engage in sensitivity training so we are mindful of our community and impact of the words we use. not very encouraging, harry and elizabeth. but i want to thank you for all

4:34 am
in the pandemic where we have more people dying from drug related deaths than we are from covid right now. it's not much of a surprise as you think of the social isolation, the recession, the mental health came from lockdowns, losing of jobs and everything that's happened throughout the last year and a half. as you showed, there was over 93,000 drug related deaths now, will, i sat down with two people who talked to me about losing their chirp through the lockdown. it was devastating to hear but important to hear. take a listen. >> could you tell us about your son daniel? >> yes, thank you very much. my son daniel was a 16-year-old vivacious and beautiful young man who during the pandemic on april the 1st decided that he wanted to self-medicate. he would have these bouts of depression and during the pandemic there was no socializing going around. he wasn't able to be with his friends.
4:35 am
he able to hang out with them. he bought what he thought was a blue m-30 oxycodone pill and what it turned out to be was a pill, a counterfeit pill made of any kind of binder and fentanyl. he only consumed half of that pill and it took his life. the media has it wrong when they are just talking about overdoses. what is happening is our children, first time users and recreational drug divliewfers can go into snapchat, order what they think is a trademarked pharmaceutical pill and in reality we see a counterfeit opioid. no child should be getting a death sentence when ingesting one of these counterfeit opioids. i think that is the biggest message that we have to get out to parents. >> that's devastating and as a mother myself i couldn't imagine. undoubtedly as we have seen throughout the pandemic, the lockdowns, the social distancing, they have all led to feels of isolation. now, amy, you know, we were listening to him talking about
4:36 am
how children going on social media platforms and obtaining what they think to be legitimate pharmaceuticals one that you may see from a pharmacy. it's not three get it off of social media. they aren't think it's going to be laced with a poison that could ultimately kill them. amy, please tell us about your son, alexander. >> my 14-year-old son alexander, he had decided he wanted to experiment with what he thought were prescription opioids. and he reached out to drug dealer through social media and obtained those fake pills. one night he came to us and he said hey, i got to tell you something. he shed these pills had a hold of him. he couldn't understand why and that he needed help. and so the morning of june 22nd, i called a place to get help. they needed to call me back and that night he took his final pill. and the morning of june 23rd, i walked into his bedroom to take him an to an orthodontist appointment and he was gone. these kids think these drug dealers are their friends.

they are they need their parents but yet they want to grow up. these drug dealers have learned to prey on that. >> what is your message to everyone out there on how we can make it better and how they can seek help? >> well, the first thing that i believe that they must do is they have to reach out and they have to talk to people. these children have nobody to socialize with you about on the internet which is very, very dangerous. i would strongly suggest that you really, really look at what they are doing on their phone. talk to them every day. hug them every day, tell them that you love them because you just don't know. i saw what no parent should ever have to see and that is their dead child in their bedroom. rachel: you know, will, several interesting points that came out of this, first of all, their children, alexander and daniel, both found these drugs online on a social media platform snapchat and they went and bought what they thought were going to be

self-loathing white people there. and he said they don't represent -- these people don't represent the black community and neither does the woman who said everyone should die. parent should die. here is what he had to say. >> i was shocked to hear the statements considering who the person is. she is a voting board member of the virginia parent teacher association. that's a statewide office. and she has a tremendous amount of influence over the state. these comments are inappropriate. >> i'm really just stunned at the silence of this school board of the naacp, of the virginia pta. you know, but i'm not surprised. you know, this is what we are seeing, a school board mentality that is ideologically driven. that is agenda driven. it isn't about the education of our children. and it certainly isn't about listening to parents. pete: no, it's not. it feels like parents have
5:11 am
almost no recourse. rachel: no. pete: the ptas these days. most of them are captured by unions. they have union members that control them. the europes control the school boards on many occasions. and the curriculum, whether it's banned or not, you have got teachers saying we are going to teach it anyway. whether it's school choice -- will: that video is in response to patience standing up their children taught to be racist. that's what this is in response to. >> colluding with wlm to two new curriculum for your kids. this is really scary stuff. again, it could be take over your school board but how do you stop teachers that are this ideological from sneaking their ideology into your kids into your kids' classroom. i don't know what you do. the answer over the long term is we must have school choice. pete: keep shouting it out loud. keep standing up for what you believe in. and, you know -- what an exclamation point. turning now to your headlines starting with a fox news alert.

5:42 am
kids supported blm because they thought it was a racial justice movement. even though we on fox were going hey marxists. the message so many young people got through social media they were supporting a racial justice movement. when they saw blm make the statement in support of the communist cuban government. the oppressors of the cuban people, oppressors of their family. they just said oh my gosh, it was like eye owning, they feel betrayed by blm. that's interesting. also a lot angry at aoc. also pretending like she is supporting the cuban people but actually parroting the words of the communist government there trying to blame the embargo and things that the people on the streets aren't talking about. and many of those people say aoc, blm, you go to cuba you won't survive a month in cuba if you did. people are angry at those responses. will: it's eye opening but it shouldn't be blm when fidel castro passed away rest in

rachel: new developments in the mollie tibbetts case as a judge denies a motion for prosecutors to turn over more evidence. christian's lawyers made the request after two witnesses claimed another man confessed to killing tibbets. but the judge denied the motion calling it, quote: a fishing expedition. our next guest served as the jury former in the trial delivering the guilty verdict against rivera in may. he joins us now to react. bo, you were on the jury. you were the foreman. you basically saw all the evidence. so, is there anything that has come out since your verdict that would make you change your mind about the guilt of rivera in this case? >> from what i read, personally i'm not going to speak for the other jurors, i personally think same. it's very hard from what i have read about, you know, they had her in a house, versus his
5:48 am
testimony versus the evidence it doesn't make any sense personally to myself. if i had to make the decision, i would have kept it the same. it's very hard to realistically put all of that together in a realistic timeline how it seemed like they abducted her and kept her in a traf house for a little while. it doesn't make any sense to me from all the evidence and everything that look like that happened it all happened in the same time. it's really hard to put together that she was somewhere for some time. rachel: what's the most convincing evidence that you heard while you were a juror that points to the guilt of rivera versus any other possibility? >> yeah. so, we had the blood in the car. he was interviewed before she was -- when she was alive and after she was alive. he was the only one that could bring anyone to her body. and he admitted that so that was a lot of the key points that
5:49 am
brought it to that. so, obviously we were missing a lot of, you know, key evidence, you know, the murder weapon and time of death and things of that. we were able to put the surrounding evidence together and come up with our decision based on that. rachel: right. there is not a lot of americans out there who have had the experience that you have had to sit on such a high profile case to hear all this really the horrific details of this, you know, crime. i'm sure it's had an emotional toll on you. what has been the effect of sitting on a trial like this and hearing this very sad story? >> yeah, it was very intense. it was eemotional. i obviously had no ties to mollie but i have a daughter of my own, and, you know, sometimes throughout the trial you kind of think to yourself what if this is my child? what would i do? it was tough sometimes. it became part of our lives for a couple of weeks.
5:50 am
it is still part of our lives now. it was very emotional. it was tough. but when it came down to the at the end of the day we had to put that aside to make our decision. it was tough. it was emotional for, i believe, everybody. i don't think it was easy for anybody. but we got through it. rachel: yeah. you did. and it seems like you might have gotten the right guy there. despite the new evidence coming out although we will get hear more about that evidence as well. i see mollie's smile makes me just so sad. just going out for a jog. it's just a horrific, horrific story as our hearts go out to her family, of course. so, thank you both for joining us and for your insight, very interesting. >> thank you so much. rachel: all right. up next, it's been dubbed the freedom phone. meet the bitcoin billionaire who says his device stands up to big tech. stay with us. ♪ ♪

attempting to snatch all 5-year-old child off the street in broad daylight. the boy's whether acting fast and throwing him to the car's open window as the car speeds by. police have one person in custody is the violent crime rate surges in new york city. joining us to react is nypd officer darren porcher. i looked at that video and it is every parent's nightmare. before we talk about crime in new york city talk about how awesome this was. >> i can't even explain, exponential courage in connection with retrieving her child that was in the car after her child was taken by an adult so i salute her because this was a sincere act of sheer bravery. >> this happened in broad daylight. what is happening in new york

6:19 am
begs the question of how effective are we in connection with crime control strategies, reducing crime is not as difficult as people think, it's a 3-legged stool. the first is deployment of personnel in the areas where you experience the highest spike in crime. the second thing is the supervision. we want to ensure the cops deployed in this area are properly supervised in the third leg to the stories after action review to assess what we are doing is working and mayor deblasio is not effectively managing the 3-legged stool and crime is manifesting through the city of new york. we look at incident like we saw in this video it is a reflection of failed policies. >> when you lay out so succinctly and honestly how easy it is to decrease crime rate and they refused to do those three points it is mind

>> he needs an umbrella. >> can you read the prompter. >> a federal judge orders the biden administration to end the new dac applications the numbers broke 2190,000 bringing the total to 1 million or as will points out we are getting one waco every month of illegal aliens coming into the country. >> you educated us, the judge stayed the dac order, it can't be further executed and there's a pause on that was the biden white house put on a statement on the ruling just moments ago, they said yesterday's record ruling is very disappointing, the department of justice intends to appeal this decision in order to preserve and fortify diesel the aca.
6:25 am
i repeatedly -- i renew the call with the greatest of urgency. by the way i saw a note this week the democrats may attempt to include immigration reform into the budget reconciliation bill. apartment hearing in the senate says we can do immigration in a funding bill but we try to find a way anyway we can. >> in the reconciliation process, into that proposal which is you point out appropriately, it is supposed to reconcile whatever is in the budget. >> we've been talking about diesel the aca, we have a disagreement about it but i will concede to this which is the whole dreamer these are the aca thing was supposed to be contingent on the border being secured and we have never had a more open borders and now. these numbers are astounding.
6:26 am
look at these numbers. last year at this time we had 33,000 in june, this time we have 188,000, out of the water kind of numbers. i had tom home and on earlier. he said the biden administration is just lying. >> the biden administration has been lying to the american people since day one. every month he's been president the number has gone higher and higher, that is a failure but this administration doesn't care about illegal immigration, this is the open border agenda and the secretary of homeland security, 8000 criminal aliens, gang members and drug dealers, does that matter, do your job and secure the border and if
6:27 am
they can't figure out, i will fix it in a week. it isn't hard, the trump administration did it, they don't want to do it, this is an open borders agenda. >> why don't they just be honest, why don't they just tell the truth, republicans want to close the border and we think it should be open and we should let everybody in the wants to because that is what is happening. i would have so much more respect for them if they would stop lying to us in treating us this way, just say what you are doing because we can see. our border patrol is telling us what is happening, they said this isn't even a crisis, it is chaos. >> that doesn't include the.aways in those numbers. the far left base is a, they are for open borders, globalization, globalism, that no human can be illegal, that is part of the echo chamber on the left, politicians don't want to admit it but you see their admission to their policies. >> numbers go down in the middle of the summer and it just keeps going higher. >> it is really hot right now and it is hot here but you are
6:28 am
not in the desert and you are not 12 years or 11 years old, those children are at great risk and still being used as ponds and it is very sad. we will see that, a lot of people die. supporters for the cuban fight for freedom are marching to washington dc to get the biden administration to act. lieutenant governor of florida jeanette nunez is the daughter of a cuban exile in joins us next and adam is getting ready to wrap up shark week at the sea life aquarium. we get a close-up look. >> where is the tag.

6:33 am
>> a caravan calls on biden to take action and help to the cuban people. here to react is jeanette nunez, florida lieutenant governor, daughter of a cuban exile. so we saw what happened, the bravery of the cuban people in the crackdown and mixed messages from the white house, coming out and saying something yesterday but is it enough and what should be done? >> it has been a doctor jekyll and mister hyde approach to cuba. there was silence and then tweets from the state department that made no sense, insulting to the cuban people and biden being pulled in each direction by the socialist progressive wing like bernie sanders and aoc that want to blame the us for all of cuba's
6:34 am
problems and people clamoring for freedom. here and in cuba you see people rise up, brutally beaten, incarcerated, arrested, many of them missing, their own family members don't know where they are and biden has done nothing. we ask for him to please bring the internet to cuba to expose the truth so people can communicate and see what is going on and they've done little to nothing in that regard. >> your stories like so many, cuban refugees, your father, talking south florida and florida in general are the united states of america, your father fled from the castro regime early on after the revolution, tell us a little about that story. >> my father left cuba in 1961, he left my mother and sister behind. he was in danger of being imprisoned. they had informed him he was under house arrest and was going to be watched and
6:35 am
monitored. my mother had to pretend my father abandoned her. she was lucky, she was able to join in with my older sister but they came here because they understood the implications of what was going on in cuba and nothing has changed in 60 plus years. over the last couple months we've dealt with the loss of my father and what we wondered in the last couple days what would he be saying now but i don't have to go much further. we have so many people in south florida throughout the state of florida and not just cuban americans, freedom loving people from everywhere who feel strongly the cuban people deserve freedom, they should be able to control their own destiny. my home, the biden administration will do something, they will finally provide the cuban people the liberty, the freedom they so desperately desire. >> of the federal government doesn't do it they should do which is in the very least help
6:36 am
provide internet access for the people of cuba so they can continue to organize, continue to protest for their liberty and show an answer to repression and the killings going on in the rest of the world. if they don't do that, will you, will the state of florida do something? i spoke with the mayor who indicated that is on the table. >> governor desantis has been firm in his commitment standing with those cubans on the island and cuban americans in the state, florida is home to the largest number of cuban americans so we understand all too well the plight of the cubans and from the standpoint of providing internet access the governor has been in communication with folks that have the technology, have the capacity to provide internet, we heard from the sec chairman they have the ability to get it done quickly, just need the green light.
6:37 am
i don't understand what is taking so long. it should not take this long to make a decision to stand for freedom with the people of cuba so the governor and i will push on this issue and i assure you governor desantis stand strongly. >> i worry for them. if that doesn't happen soon we will see bloodshed on the street and as pete mentioned if you are going to shoot the king you better hit him and kill him. i worry that the refresh seems to be getting stronger and stronger. they are cracking down hard. >> absolutely and that is a continued concern. time is of the essence. we are coming up on a week in which the cubans took to the streets, something you've never seen especially the younger cubans, finally released from the fear they have held for so many years, they no longer care if they are going to be incarcerated or if they are
6:38 am
going to be brutalized by the regime. they understand what is at stake. that is inspiring. will: they may not care but they know what is at stake. regimes like that will imprison and kill to maintain their power. thank you so much for your time, appreciate it. turning to a few additional headlines. an employee shot and killed while trying to stop a shoplifter. the suspect opened fire when the worker confronted him about stealing. the employee died in the los angeles story the suspect ran off. police are still hunting for him. the heroin's story of survival, harry burley speaks out of the going missing for 17 days in the oregon wilderness. he kept telling himself he could survive so he could see his wife of 40 years. >> to get home to see her hand
