places other than here on fox. but it is a crucial distinction. mark meckler, amazing insight as always. you are great on the law. we love having you. thank you your your time. >> thank you. jillian: good to be back with you. todd: awesome to be back with you. check your schedule. todd: you be there too. jillian: "fox & friends" starts right now. >> you do not know what you are talking about. gain of function research going on in that lab and you are obfuscating. >> if anybody is lying it is you. >> i will be asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to congress s there any concern that this is a super spreader event. >> that's not a characterization we are making from here. >> can you imagine if republicans went to d.c. and spread covid. that's all they would be talking about. >> a 1-year-old shot in philadelphia just another innocent victim of america's crime crisis. >> this is as bad and dangerous as i have seen in 30 years i have been practicing law.
3:01 am
>> pushing through a infrastructure bill that's not even written. >> this week's vote is an attempt to get something done. >> we're not voting on the bill until we know what the bill is. >> a after a half century the milwaukee bucks are nba champions are once again. ♪ go, go ♪ go big or go home ♪ go, go ♪ go big or go home ♪ go, go ♪ brian: in the age of the super game where super stars decide they are bigger than the game and bring a championship to a city but really to them then there were the bucks. 50 years after they won last championship with a guy named kareem jabar win at home with 65,000 on the outside. packed outside on the inside. full of celebrity in the midwest. i love that team. i have never seen a team -- by the way they had a quick turn around after the bubble. but a team that played like a
3:02 am
team with one super star who we watched as a player not come in as a star congratulations to milwaukee bucks. steve: for the other team as well you had a good year. brian: came from nowhere to the finals. ainsley: good morning, 6:01 on the east coast. thank you for waking up with us. steve: beats the alternative. [laughter] brian: thinking that hemmer is doing the morning show. ainsley: not waking up at all. steve: you have would think it would be really boring if you had to sit through a senate health education labor and pensions committee. that just does not sound too exciting, does it? yesterday it was crazy. it was off the wall because it was dr. fauci was there. he was in attendance. he was answering questions. the best questions and the most interesting that got the fireworks were for rand paul. it was all about the wuhan lab which more people think could actually have leaked covid into
3:03 am
the world achesd killed so many people. yesterday, mr. paul was asking -- actually they're both doctors, dr. paul was asking him about the lab and funding and whether or not the lab did gain of function which is where you make things more contagious. and you knew it was going to be a battle back and forth because there paul started by the way dr. fauci, if you lie during this testimony you are going to go jail. ainsley: well, dr. fauci is part of the nih and they gave $600,000 to ecohealth alliance which paid the wuhan lab, according to rand paul, which paid the wuhan lab to study coronavirus, bat coronavirus and how they would affect humans. and they argued about it. watch this. steve: man, did they. >> dr. richard ebright, a molecular biologist from rutgers described this we search in wuhan as: the wuhan lab used nih funding to con be structure novel sars related coronavirus
3:04 am
the definition of gain of function research. done entirely in wuhan. for which there was supposed to be a federal pause. dr. fauci, knowing that it is a crime to lie to congress, do you wish to retract your statement of may 11th where you claimed that the nih never funded gain of function research in woo wuhan. >> senator paul, i have never lied before the congress and i do not retract that statement. i totally resent the lie that you are now propagating, senator. you are implying that what we did was responsible for the deaths of individuals. i totally resent that. >> you could. >> talking about gain of function research. this has been evaluated multiple times by qualified people to not fall under the gain of function definition. i have not lied before congress. i have never lied. certainly not before congress, case closed.
3:05 am
brian: well, he is absolutely walking the tight rope between answering the question and acting outraged. for one thing you know anthony fauci is covering things. we have seen him every day 20 times a day for the last year and a half. i have never seen him so rattled to the core. what senator rand paul said was and so important that we play the beginning of this because everybody else is playing the end. when they shut off his microphone and anthony fauci is able to say you are the one lying and people are playing that and go wow, anthony fauci really got mad at rand paul. here's the thing, everything rand paul said was correct. what anthony fauci and he is not what rand paul says. he said you, through the nih, through a subcontractor paying the wuhan lab who, in turn, were doing gain of function research and, therefore, you are not telling the truth when you say you didn't. they said well, this isn't the type -- this isn't the type of experiment that played into the pandemic, well, that wasn't the
3:06 am
question. did you say or did you not say that you had nothing to do with gain of function research? if you said you didn't, you are not telling the truth. and i believe and ainsley, i told you about this book, it's called chaos under the sun josh rogin not many people think "the washington post" is a left wing organization but that's who he writes for. wrote the book comprehensive book prior to the pandemic and through the pandemic the relationship between china, the wuhan lab and the u.s. he said from his twitter lab the nih was funding gain of function research research in wuhan but the nih pretended it didn't meet the gain of function research to meet their own mechanism. sorry, not sorry if that doesn't fit your narrative. rand paul was right. fauci was wrong. even though the headlines tell you that fauci was outraged and he put rand paul in his place. not if you are paying attention. steve: and if you see the whole thing and it's available on foxnews.com, mr. fauci, and you heard him and dr. fauci and you heard him at the end, he said it
3:07 am
at the beginning touring his preamble that nih officials, meaning the lawyers, all looked at it and it does not gain of function definition. ainsley: they're the ones giving the money. steve: his lawyers found a loophole where he is able to say you know, by our definition this ain't it. ainsley: but rand paul, he said there have been thousands of emails that point back to you that say you were worried about this and you were warned about this could have come from the lab and originally he said no, it couldn't be from the lab and that was back in -- that was early like may, april, may, 2020 and then a few months later he said there is a possibility but i don't really think so but it is a possibility. rand paul pointed to this paper that's being talked about that book that brian and i are reading. the paper talks about producing a coronavirus which means it was altered by man in gain of function and paper written by wuhan scientists. rand paul was on with sean
3:08 am
hannity last night and he says he wants a criminal investigation. listen. steve: uh-oh. >> i will be sending a letter to the department of justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to congress. we have scientists that will line up by the dozens to say that the research he was funding was gain of function. he is doing this because he has a self-interest to cover his tracks and to cover his connection to wuhan lab. ainsley: fauci said you are implying what we did was responsible for covid deaths. steve: well, it seems like it leaked from the lab. it seems like the nih funded it. it seems like there gain of function experiments going on. so it will be great to have somebody -- ainsley: why is he the top expert if he is with the nih and the nih is giving money to this lab? brian: that's a great question. here is another great question. why are we the only ones that seem to care? this -- doesn't this pandemic affect millions of people around the globe? isn't this guy the face of the
3:09 am
counter -- to the explaining this pandemic? and every time he is called on the carpet there is no follow-up questions nor are people reporting the story. something else i thought was important, $80 billion the nih gets. they give away 40 billion in grants. with the 41 billion left, do you know how much money was gone to study the effects of covid-19 0.4%. wouldn't it be great to take the money use the data and study should kids wear masks and why have the vaccine effective to a certain point when it comes to variants? just some of the topics he would spend our money on. steve: let's see if the department of justice under the attorney general merrick garland decides to take mr. paul, dr. paul up on it and dots file charges. stay tuned for that in the meantime, straight ahead on this wednesday violent crime has spiked. and some democratic mayors want to defunded police and have done that but they had no problem hiring their own private

♪ jillian: good morning and welcome back. we have a look at your headlines now. we start with a new study suggesting the johnson & johnson vaccine is less effective against the delta variant. researchers at new york university found antibody levels from people who got the one dose vaccine were twice as low
3:15 am
compared to those given the pfizer or moderna shots. 13 million americans who got the j and j shot may need boosters to protect against varnts. comes as cdc reveals 83% of all new covid-19 case are the delta variant. people in northern colorado returning home after flash flooding causes mud slides in areas hit by fires. look at this video. and this as smoke and haze from the flames burning across the west coast drifts all the way across the country. you can barely see the new york city skyline in video taken from brooklyn. of the massive fire burning in oregon that generate clouds that generate thunderstorms. new images of colorado sierra, nevada taken from nasa satellites show those dry conditions and janice has been following all of this. we have a fox news alert now. the u.s. military carries out an airstrike against terrorists in somalia. the pentagon says it targeted al-shabaab fighters who were linked to al-qaeda.
3:16 am
the group is responsible for a number of high profile bombings and other attacks in somalia. now at this point it's unclear whether anyone died in the strike. this is the first military action in somalia under president biden. and new overnight three people are shot just blocks away from where thousands of people were celebrating the milwaukee bucsman championship win. police taking several people into custody. three people also hurt during celebrations outs rebound. the severity of their arenas is not clear. bucs defeating phoenix sun 105 to 96 in game six. this is milwaukee's first championship is 50 years. congrats to them. and my goodness giannis antetokounpo is a star and going to be a star. brian: do you know what i also love? he doesn't argue with the refuses. all these guys whine no stop if there is a penalty or whatever. he just goes okay. i have seen him dribble a ball
3:17 am
with his foot and cost the game. ainsley: made it all the way to the championship. brian: can you verify that. jillian: yes, brian, i will verify that for you. i will verify their exact record for you. brian: second source in front of me. wow this is unbelievable. ainsley: i asked him how did they come back did they get a new coach or something brian is hmmmm. brian: it's called chris paul. jillian: eagles come back and win the super bowl next year and it will keep happening. brian: amazing coach and quarterback. steve: thank you, jillian, good to have you back. all right, you know when those texas fugitive democrats flew to washington, d.c. on board those two luxury jets with their beer we said the next day, you know, that probably is going to wind up being a super spreader event. we know that was a super spreader event. so far six of them have tested positive for covid.
3:18 am
they exposed the vice president. they have infected the white house staffer. they have infected a senior spokesperson to nancy pelosi and, in fact, hundred entire press team is now working remotely except people who had no contact. it's unclear how many others they infected because not everybody is tested every day who comes in contact with the texas delegation which this has turned out to be a p.r. disaster. ainsley: governor says with them congress ba he this be arrested. a texas democrat who left austin to go to d.c. felony i can't thompson. she had a fiery speech comparing texas officials like the governor who want to arrest her for fleeing the texas and fleeing that vote, she says it's an act of slavery escaping the plantation. listen. >> we refuse to be a hostage. >> that's right. >> to remain a hostage within a state of texas. and i know that there are search warrants out for us. and i'm ready to be arrested.
3:19 am
[laughter] what do you do to a slave if you do nothing but arrest them when we flee. we fled texas. if they want to arrest me. go ahead, i'm ready to be arrested. brian: i mean, if you talk about an election in which the majority takes control, i mean, could you imagine if a republican stood up and said i'm not going to take this anymore in the house because we are -- we are outranked by five members so we're in the minority? that's coined of the way the texas legislature and every state legislature works there is a majority and minority. as the governor pointed out yesterday, the ones that stayed in the senate, the democrats, they actually are working on different things and they're getting some headway in the election legislation. but the ones that ran aren't going to get anything and when they come back again, they are going to get arrested and they're going to reconvene the special session as soon as they arrive. has anyone thought this out? and in terms of a super spreader event, remember, that's how they characterized the supreme court justice nomination of amy coney barrett because some tested
3:20 am
positive after that rose garden event. what about now? isn't this a super spreader event? that's what peter doocy brought up. >> is there any concern that this trip that was intended to advocate for voting rights is now a super spreader event in washington? >> well, i would say that's not a characterization we're making from here. we certainly understand there will be break through cases, even vaccines that are incredibly affective are not full proof. pete: now that covid-19 after contact with those democrats has reached the white house, what is your message to these texas democrats? >> our message continues to be thanks for standing up for voting rights and the rights of americans to have their voices heard at the voting booth and we appreciate their efforts in that regard. brian: and thanks for giving everyone covid-19. did that come out at all? steve: and she also revealed for the first time that other white house staffers have tested positively for covid at the white house. they were supposed to tell the
3:21 am
press when it happened. she admitted to it yesterday. apparently. brian: transparent most transparent administration ever. how did that happen? steve: apparently the super spreader event where the white house person and speaker's office person were infected was at a reception with the texas delegation on the roof of a hotel in washington, d.c. brian: can i justed a this? remember that president biden keeps telling everyone, everyone that gets this virus it's because we are getting this virus because this is a virus, a variant that spread because of the unvaccinated? everybody supposedly that we're talking about now is vaccinated. and if you want people to trust the actual vaccination you would say that the symptoms are milder but they do break through but instead they want to just blame facebook or other outlets because of that. steve: they do testing every day at the white house. but not everybody at the white house is actually vaccinated. brian: which is dumb because if
3:22 am
you have the vaccine, you should nod be tested every day. steve: the thing regarding those members of the texas delegation, they have told us that they were all vaccinated but they haven't -- or the people who were infected were fully vaccinated. but they haven't revealed the names. a couple people of self-identified but we don't know for sure if they really have been all vaccinated. ainsley: to your point about the rose garden ceremony is hypocrisy. why is it when donald trump in offers it's a super spreader. when joe biden is in office. steve: they are not going to talk about it. ainsley: ari fleischer talked about how this has backfired. >> it was team biden who did refer to trump events particularly the rose garden ceremony with amy coney barrett as a super spreader event. they are willing to say that when the super spread something done by another party as opposed to rising up and saying covid is covid. it doesn't matter what party you are or who you are. as for the texas legislature, it's hard to imagine, bret, a
3:23 am
bigger self-designed failure. i mean, they fled their jobs, they left their workplace, they came to washington to alarm people for a cause and it's all backfired. and gotten them sick. and they are not going to be able to get out their message anymore. when they go back to texas they will get arrested. so, if you wanted to design an event that failed, this is how you do it. brian: a disaster. and they accomplished absolutely nothing. steve: it's completely backfired and because they have all been exposed to the covid, they can't go home. they got to self-isolate. they are hold up in their hotel. brian: do you know how much this is going to cost beto o'rourke. is he writing a check from super pac of $200 for each hotel room minimum a day along with a private jet. along with some taxpayer money and per diem, i don't know how big their appetites are i know taco bell is having trouble getting meat. higher give more money.
3:24 am
ainsley: give to the super pac take that money and use for their trip. brian: he did. steve: speaking of the political left. jimmy, you know him, sea comedian, is he on "tucker carlson today" you will see it at 4:00 on fox nation.com. and fox nation. he was talking to tucker in the last couple of days. this particular episode is dropping today. he talks about the political left in particular. and is there any there there? well, here's jimmy. >> false signals but there is no substance. we are signaling that we want to help the minority community. but we north actually helping them. so that's whether a identity politics is. it's a big diversification. the joke i say in it was 1806 the democrats would be bragging about their first transgendered slave owner. ainsley: you could watch more of that on "tucker carlson today" on fox nation it will be on there at 4:00 this afternoon. brian: can i say across america so many people are redoing their
3:25 am
dens the way tucker carlson's set in. it makes you want to take your jacket off. put on a denim shirt and just talk to somebody and. ainsley: move to a ranch. steve: let me look. brian, you are absolutely right. do you know what's trending right now? note pine. brian: absolutely. that's what i would have called it had i known. ainsley: takes me back i was 5. steve: yeah. everybody had it. came in a great big 4 by 8 sheets. ainsley: you just put it up there. steve: a couple of nails and some glue. next thing you know you have tucker carlson's living room. brian: before home depot use the knots on the tree slice it up. the waltons who had a lumberyard. that's the way they used to chop up their trees. remember on walton's mount? if you know what i'm talking about, write me. steve: good night. good night, brian, bob. be. brian: still ahead on this show serious stuff when it comes to crime. this crisis in america is
3:26 am
putting kids in the crossfire almost on a daily basis like this 1-year-old shot in philadelphia. where is the outrage? we'll discuss the policies that are failing our kids. steve: and a high school football coach who you have met on this program is heading to the supreme court fighting for the right to say a prayer after the game on the field. he will give us an update on his case straight ahead on this wednesday "fox & friends." ♪ ♪ take shots night owl as the world just fades away ♪ check in the pocket ♪

the first full prescription strength gel for powerful arthritis pain relief... voltaren the joy of movement jillian: good morning, welcome back. a look at you're headlines now. thousands of new emails shed light into the investigation of doomsday cult mom lori vallow, among the evidence is this. the last known photo of joshua. investigators believe value low and her husband, chad daybell killed the 7-year-old and his older sister reilly in 2019 after murdering his ex-wife. criminal proceedings against vallow are on hold after being deemed unfit to stand trial. daybell is expected to stand trial later this year. texas farmers want the biden administration to pay for damage to their properties and crops sustained from the surge of border crossing. just look at some of these photos. the largest organization of farmers in america are desperate for federal help. some photos showing cut fences,
3:31 am
destroyed crops, vandalism, litter on their property and even more. new data shows illegal border crossings are on pace to top 1 million this month. the drive to recall los angeles county district attorney george gas connie is gaining steam. a 24th city has issued a vote of no confidence over his progressive policies. a mayor reportedly saying gas connie is allowing criminals to have more rights than victims. recall organizers must collect over 579,000 signatures by the end of october to trigger that recall. as of last week, they are reporting more than 100,000. and as you know, jeff bezos just blasted off to the edge of space and now he's getting blasted for giving away 200 million bucks. cnn contributor van jones and celebrity chef jose andreas receiving $100 million each. they will donate to to charities of their choice. meanwhile some kinder words from richard branson who beat bezos
3:32 am
to space quote well done blue origin and jeff bezos, mark, wally and oliver, impressive. >> we have best to all the crew from me and all the team at virgin galactic. that's pretty cool. brian? brian: i might start a space program. jillian: i will go with you. brian: i have to pick out my unitard. serious stuff. surging violence in america's major cities shedding light on the devastating effect on youngest victims. more than 200 chicago youth shot this year. 26 fatally. philly, more than 120 shot, 21 dead. so where is the outrage? kevin is the president of every black life matters, kevin, where is the outrage? >> thank you for having me, brian, yeah. it's been atrocious. and the outrage has been really missing. and no one is holding these mayors, these major cities accountable. and actually, the carnage has
3:33 am
been predictable. the reason why i say that is all of these mayors of these cities have actually significantly increased their personal security over these times so, they have taken the action to fully protect themselves. they have actually increased their personal details. their personal security details during these times. but they have actually defunded the security on the street. the law enforcement and police officer on their street. brian: unbelieve it or not the most vulnerable are exposed. and the most -- and the elected officials are anything but. the city spent over 17 million between 2015 and 2020 to guard unnamed city officials in chicago. in san francisco, 12 million is spent for city officials between 2015 and 2020. get this in san diego. 2021, 2.6 million spent for 12 full time officers to protect the mayor. why are they more important than every day americans?
3:34 am
>> and that's the thing that's so outrageous about it. outrageous, political. and unfortunately, we all hear these, you know, this outrage about black lives mattering and unfortunately it's black lives that are taking the disproportional plight of a lot of these lives being snuffed out as a result of this urban violence of criminals that are actually if due to gang violence. a lot of these bullets and, of course, a lot of the toddlers and children bearing the brunt of this kind of violence in our streets. brian: up to people like you and everybody else to stand up and speak out because a lot of them cannot and don't have the mega phone. a lot of them don't have their lives. in the cities where the mayors defunded police but also pay for private security, the biggest and the most violent.
3:35 am
chicago, san francisco is a tragedy. new york city, i have been living in it it's ugly and embarrassing. baltimore maryland is almost a lost cause and san diego i just told you. kevin, how was your message and your organization different from blm? >> well, would he actually advocate instead of defund the police. we say refund the police. we actually say that a lot of these department and actually, you know, a lot of these cities are actually refunding the police. they are actually now reprioritizing law enforcement. we actually advocate for as opposed to the administration turning a blind eye to black plight, the plight within our major cities and disproportional plight within the black community due to urban violence. we actually advocate that the administration actually increased border security. here is the issue. we do have a red carpet with
3:36 am
human trafficking, drug trafficking and as a result. gun trafficking. actually coming in to our porous borders right now. and guess what? so, because of that, we actually have gun violence. brian: yep. >> to, you know, criminals. and that's what we're actually seeing. instead of going after law-abiding citizens, and thinking about confiscating their rights. brian: what about people that belong here and guns don't belong here along with drugs that get here. they don't seem to care along with a pandemic that has people coming across our border contaminated with covid-19 at a 900 percent increase. 1 million illegals here and the administration doesn't care. kevin, thanks for pointing that out. kevin, thanks so much. every black life matters. you are the president. thanks so much, kevin. >> you got it. brian: ben and jerry will no longer sell ice cream in israel.

ben and jerry's the ice cream company facing backlash after refusing to sell ice cream to parts of israel that they refer to as palestinian occupied territory. we are talking about israeli settlements in the west bank. now some american supermarkets are firing back and they have pulled ben and jerry's from their freeze are shelves. glatt express supermarket in teaneck, new jersey. he joins us now. good morning to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me. steve: you bet. why did you decide if you want ben and jerri's you have to go to another store. not mine. >> as a proud jew and son of holocaust survivor. always on my radar. i saw this statement and read the full press release, it was blatant anti-semitism. i knew as a proud jew i had to take a stand and that's what we did. steve: explain why it's anti-semitic. >> well, without getting into politics and details on that end
3:54 am
israel is the most humane democratic and free country in the middle east and to single them out through this statement and press release is anti-semitic flat out. there is no other way to put it or beat around it. that's what it is and that's a decision they chose to take. steve: ben and jerry's they put out a statement they said we believe it is inconsistent with our values for ben and jerry's ice cream to be sold in what they call the occupied palestinian territory. we have informed our israeli manufacturer that we will not renew that license agreement when it expires at the end of next year. they are just simply saying we are not going to make it ice cream and sell it in the israeli settlements in the west bank. there have been israeli settlements in the west bank for a very long time. >> correct. and what bothered me most was when they wrote about inconsistent values. if you do a little research, they sell ice cream places that don't go, according to their values.
3:55 am
and that's something that really struck me. as i said before, israel is the most humane country in the middle east. that's a fact if anyone wants to check and look into that. by singling them out it's unacceptable. as a small business owner i'm happy we started this movement and we are going to continue to take charge of it and keep going steve the former prime minister benjamin netanyahu tweeted yesterday now we israelis know which ice cream not to buy you say, you know, just leave politics out of food, right? >> yeah. i mean, at the end of the day, whether what side you are on. this is anti-semitic. but food is supposed to unite people. gather together and enjoy it when corporations get involved like this, it's a lose lose for everybody. it didn't accomplish anything. guided the people in the country and the world more apart. steve: real quick, donnie, have

different country in chicago beginning of the month july 1st there was a 1-year-old car seat with her mom and she was shot. the bullet went through her head. she had emergency surgery. the bullet is still floneld her head. it did not puncture her brain. she is still alive thank goodness after 15 days in the hospital. her mom says chicago is so dangerous that she is taking her little girl out of that city. listen. i love the city but i can't stay here anymore. it is happening everywhere but chicago is the worst. it's the worst. steve: yeah, and what happened to her child where she was still strapped in her car seat, apparently three guys started shooting and it's another one of those cases. we heard about this. this is what happened in washington, d.c. outside the nationals game.
4:04 am
it's happening everywhere. here are some of the images. these brazen people who apparently do not fear the police are just shooting out of cars or getting out of cars and shooting. but, also, it's the prosecutors as well because there are a number of jurisdictions where the prosecutors are going okay, yeah, you caught them we're not going to go ahead and file charges and we're not going to prosecute the case. so, they know not only will they probably not get caught but they won't be prosecuted. ainsley: the mom was shot seven years ago in chicago she was sitting in her car and someone walked up and started spraying bullets and one hit her. brian: friday over in d.c. you mentioned a 6-year-old was shot. we talked about that. 18-year-old accused of shooting a kid over in arizona. so, over and over again, you see all these cities with all these shootings amongst kids are the victims, innocent victims, obviously. toddlers, clearly. kevin mcgary is with an
4:05 am
organization called every black life matters. he can't believe more people aren't concerned about this. he is. listen to what he is saying and he contrasted it with those so-called mayors or officials that want to defund the police and expose these kids but yet get private security. outrage has been really missing and no one is holding these mayors of these windy cities accountable. has been predictable. the reason why i say that is all these mayors of these have actually significantly increased their personal security over these times. so, they have taken the action to fully protect themselves, they have actually increased their personal details personal security details during these times. but they have actually defunded the security on the street, the law enforcement and police officer on their streets.
4:06 am
steve: so forbes magazine looked into it. there are 20 big cities run by democrats, all of them, and they have talked about defunding the police or they are proposing to defund police, and so while they are talking about that in private, behind the scenes. they have got private security details forbes says 2020 -- guard unnamed city officials at the same time that lori lightfoot cut 400 cops. and then in san francisco, they spent 12 million during the same time to protect the mayor and here in new york city, bill de blasio cut a billion dollars from the police budget and when asked hey, how much are you spending on his private security detail they never got back to forbes they don't that number released. >> forbes says $358,000 when he
4:07 am
traveled the country during the presidential campaign. steve: that was just to iowa. ainsley: his wife and son have security key tail. his daughter canceled her protection a few years ago. brian: she was actually caught throwing things at police during one of the riots. did he win, de blasio? i forgot. ainsley: no, unfortunately. brian: he didn't win the presidency. steve: he didn't get 1% in iowa. brian: i'm surprised people didn't vote against him let alone for him. steve: and the thing, brian, that makes this so jaw-dropping and started in chicago. since the beginning of this year. 212 kids under 17, 212 kids have been shot in the city of chicago. that place is simply not safe for kids. brian: out in california, i have a friend story, can i share it? ainsley: sure. you have a friend? brian: a few of my friends went to pebble beach went golfing and drop off one of the guys at the
4:08 am
airport and they had some time. went to san francisco to the what were. in 12 minutes their luggage was stolen, windows were smashed at a rent a car. everything gone. and when they returned the rent acar, they said they saw all the smashed windows and they say this has been happening nonstop. all these people break in and stealing stuff it's chaos in california. steve: that is why yesterday we were talking about how san francisco is swarming police to the tourist areas they don't want what happened to your friends and somebody like to you say it on tv. wait, san francisco, the tourist areas are not safe? just like in new york city? i'm not going to go to either place. brian: adam carolla tweeted this out thanks to prop 4237 you shoplift under $1,000 you will not be prosecuted. guess what? people are taking about 900 bucks on a regular basis running rampant through stores.
4:09 am
thanks to prop -- i didn't memorize the tweet if i could see it again it will be great. there you go. thanks to prop 47, thefts under $950 will not be prosecuted, so cops will not bother showing up. just a reminder that you get what you voted for, california. and what we just saw was what was happening. can you imagine being in a store waiting in line and watching guys walk in with duffle bags and walk out with stuff? ainsley: what is their reasoning for not prosecuting this? brian: anti-broken windows campaign where instead of prosecuting every crime we will bruit almost none. >> if you are a chief walk in a walk out $950. steve: contestant on the price is right. i'm at $875? you know what? i'm just going to leave. the store owners are helpless because they know they are not -- to our earlier point, they know that these people are not going to be prosecuted. here's some video of the
4:10 am
frustrated employees and owners reacting to this shoplifting that is widespread in san francisco. lawlessness. people just openly coming in and stealing stuff. >> people don't want to leave their stuff out because they are afraid somebody is going to snatch it and grab it a lot of shops had to close during the pandemic. to say try to reopen and get back on track it's hard, you know. and they are afraid. >> this happens every day two to three four or five cars up down the street broken into. broad caught people walk out with stuff and police don't do anything. >> these poor tourists coming over here and having a great time in most one of the most bifl beautiful cities in the world city of love. next thing you know on the way out, boom, getting their luggage broken into. not just one family, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on. it goes on. nobody is doing anything about it. steve: nobody is doing anything
4:11 am
about it you can understand the frustration. ainsley: it doesn't make sense. you can't steal something up to $950 and be able to walk away with the merchandise. someone had to pay for that originally. brian: that's what you voted for. those are the prosecutors you put in office. those are the mayors that you put in chark. that's what you have allowed them to do to law enforcement. you have emasculated them and either they turn in their badge and sit there and say i'm going to do what i need to do in order to get my 20 years in. steve: when you look at that you wonder who would ever want to go into business. why would you want to have a restore store full of stuff if it's less than 1,000 bucks it could be gone tonight. ainsley: was it new york where if you rioted and broke into a shop, you got off scot-free. steve: a lot of people who did the looting here in new york city last year all the charges dropped. ainsley: even though they were on video doing and it could be identified. steve: just forget about that. we have other stuff to do not it going to prosecute that. brian: talk about the pandemic as it relates to illegal
4:12 am
immigration. steve: also more non-prosecution. brian: unbelievable to see over 1 million illegals come to our border and get n a time in which we have a global pandemic and almost impossible to travel to places like canada or for a while overseas and to many countries, we are still not allowed in. when it comes to our border i don't see anything. i don't care about if i'm a member of the biden administration. and now you cannot say on one side of your mouth covid-19 case number one is the only focus we should have at the same time letting in detainees who you have no idea the medical history who if they get, in they hop on buses go to bases and are let out in the middle of our country. how many are testing positive in the rio grand valley for covid-19? well, of the 135 detainees they tested positive in the first two weeks of july. remember, 188,000 came n june. that's a 21-year high.
4:13 am
overall, in july already, that's a 900 percent increase compared to last 14 months. you are worried about us going to school and 2-year-olds wearing mask to stop the spread for vaccinated people at the same time you are saying come one, come are all from over 100 countries at our southern border. you can't wrap your head around such idiocy. ainsley: numbers are staggering if you compare january numbers to now look at this, almost 1,000 came from mexico. northern triangle almost 28,000. nicaragua and south america almost 5,000. now look at it, mexico 65,000. brian: let title 42 evaporate. ainsley: look at the northern triangle almost 76,000. steve: we have known people are come from mexico and northern triangle. the key is the bottom number. look at people coming from south america and nicaragua. beginning of the year it was 4,000. now it is, what, six times that. it's 35,000 people.
4:14 am
also, according to this particular study, apparently 9,000 haitians and cubans came through in january. think about that. haitians and cubans who are just 90 miles away from florida. how do they get in the united states? through texas they are guaranteed to get in through texas. we have row mainians sneaking in. normal process going through embassy. meet you in mexico. texas legislators, democrats, who worked hard, i imagine, to win their office decide the best thing for them to do is to flee like cowards to washington, d.c. at the same time their border has been infiltrated by illegals. what are you doing that's what brian hughes wondered as he spoke to us. ♪? is like nothing we have ever seen. there has been a border crisis for a long time. the magnitude of the violence talk to the folk who live there.
4:15 am
talk to the border sheriffs. this is like nothing we have ever seen. i was there a couple weeks ago with president trump, members around the country, this screams for a federal response. texas is doing everything she can do feds have got to ask act it's their constitutional duty. brian: they won't. steve: on top of all of that the way we started out, the number of people coming into this country illegally infected with covid up 900 percent. that's something i would like to hear joe biden talk about. they are talking about everybody has got to get the shot. what about the fact 900 percent increase in the number of migrants coming into the country illegally have covid, bringing it to. we have 90 million americans who are unvaccinated. and are at risk. so you have got all those people coming in putting them at risk. brian: don't tell me you are interested and knock on my door
4:16 am
and ask me to get a vaccine with a shot in your hand and cotton ball in the other at the same time you don't care about all these people coming from other countries. this is just out of control. ainsley: brian hughes is asking for the federal government to step in. brian: forget it. ainsley: they won't do it. last administration did something about it they reversed all of those policies. steve: meanwhile, speaking of policies, today, senate democrats are pushing ahead on a vote with bipartisan infrastructure bill that i don't think has been written yet. ainsley: sound snam remember nancy pelosi we will read it after it's written. many republicans are holding their ground against biden's spending spree. >> give, what's going to happen today? griff: anybody's guess. steve, ainsley and brian, good morning. steve, you are right. the bill is not each written. no deal was reached or finalized. but it's not stopping senate majority leader chuck schumer from plowing full steam ahead filing the motion beginning debate on infrastructure bill. listen. >>this week's vote is an honest
4:17 am
attempt to get something done get the ball rolling on the senate floor. after a month, after the agreement was reached by the bipartisan group in the white house. >> if they take this vote today, g.o.p. leader mitch mcconnell says it's dead in its tracks. >> the hearing very simple principle we're not going to the bill until we know what the bill is. the economy does not need this tax and spending spree. griff: important to note not a single republican member of the bipartisan working group appears ready to sign on until they see what's in the bill. so, what's expected so far? well, we know of nearly 580 billion in new spending, 300 billion for transportation. and 250 billion to broadband power and water infrastructure. but republicans worry about what's in it that they don't know about. >> if they put amnesty in that
4:18 am
bill i would try to deny them a quorum to pass that bill. it's a 50/50 senate and the vice president doesn't count toward a quorum. >> so the motion to begin debate needs 60 votes to pass. it's quite clear the math isn't there yet. the question now is whether schumer postpones today's deadline and test vote to give it a few more days or does he proceed in what will be failure and then try to go it alone through reconciliation. brian, ainsley, steve? steve: all right. some excitement on capitol hill. thank you, griff. meanwhile, speaking of capitol hill. up next, senator rand paul also doctor and dr. anthony fauci go head to head over the wuhan lab. >> gain of function research was going on in that lab and nih funded it? >> i totally resent that. >> and could have. >> if anybody is lying here, senator. it is you. brian: oops. you are not telling the truth. former white house coronavirus testing czar admiral brett giroir will react next. at least he told us he would.

4:24 am
>> i'm not obfuscating the truth. you are implying that what we did was responsible for the deaths of individuals, i totally resent that. >> and it could have been. >> if anybody is lying here, senator, it is you. brian: answer the question. did you fund gain of function research in the wuhan lab? here to react former white house coronavirus task force testing czar admiral brett giroir. admiral, what should we know about that exchange. >> it was a concerning exchange and i do believe probably dr. fauci was hiding behind a technical definitions of what the nih might consider, quote, gain of function research. what they did fund was exactly what rand paul said. they funded researchers to go in the hundreds of miles away into the back of bat caves, extract dangerous viruses from bats that have never been seen by humans before, and bring them to a city of 10 million people in the wuhan lab. next, they chopped up those viruses and created new
4:25 am
frankenstein viruses to see if they could infect human cells. that that may not technically be quote gain of function research but it's dangerous research and senator paul's questions deserve to be answered. if i were a betting man and i'm not. i would bet all those viruses got immediately channeled into the chinese bioweapons program with the chinese military that we know were operating at the wuhan lab. legitimate questions. i don't think we got a legitimate answer. brian: you worked with dr. fauci. have you ever seen him so rattled or inappropriate in a senate hearing? >> no, i really haven't. he is usually pretty cool in those hearings. and i was really concerned because i don't think that posture was good for him, good for the hearing, or go to inspire confidence in the american people. look, i was in that chair, senator murray, senator warren beat us up in the trump administration. but you take it respectfully. that's part of the process. i have never ever seen and i

hope it never happens again that a witness who is a public health official calls a u.s. senator a liar and doesn't know what he was talking about when clearly senator paul read the paper and had important points to be made. brian: so he did fund gain of function research, right? >> well, i don't know what the nih considers. i described the research. it is extremely dangerous concerning research. if this originated from a bat cave, why would we go out and look for trouble and bring it to a city of 10 million people and then chop that virus up? so, you know, there is probably legal definitions of what it is or what it isn't. had the point is, this research was potentially dangerous research that brought dangerous viruses in, chopped them up, made new viruses and looked at their infectivity. now, to me, that's gain of function research or could lead directly to gain of function research, but under any definition, that is something that needs to be investigated,

new handbook exposes an alliance that every parent should know about. what is that alliance? fox news correspondent aishah hasnie reports right now. good morning. >> good morning to you, steve. it's a very important question that really every parent and teacher should be asking, right? the money, where does it go? well, some of the money we found out goes to tried and true programs to help get kids back on their feet. fox news also found other dollars of that fund might go to

activists who want to send white teachers to anti-racist therapy. >> after a turbulent year of protests and covid lockdowns, america's chirp are heading back to school and there could be new lessons to learn. president joe biden's american rescue plan authorized $122 billion to the department of education for state education agencies, 90% of that money will go to local school districts which, in turn, must reserve at least 20% to address the learning lost during the last school year. the administration asks they do that by using evidence-based programs like summer learning and after school activities. but that's not all. inside the department of ed's covid-19 handbook called road map to reopening safely and meeting all students' needs the department recommends schools use some of the mope towards race and social emotional

learning. the manual offers a direct link to a group called the abolitions teaching network who will help schools transform. >> network that's dedicated to not creating schools or reimagining schools but destroying schools. harm black and brown. >> author and activist creating the abolitionist teaching network in 2020 to educators to fight injustice in their schools and communities. >> if you don't realize white supremacy in everything we do you have a problem. >> wants to go anti-racist therapy to stop them from what she calls spirit murdering black and brown students. >> one of the things that i bring to this work is a significant history of trying to trouble my own racial identity and trying to help other white teachers trouble their internalized white supremacy and anti-blackness. >> we also found the group hired
4:34 am
paid activists across the country whose job they say is going into schools to dismages oppressive structures mapping, building groups and coalitions creating media and propaganda. >> education cannot save us. we must save education. >> i want us to be feared. >> for example, if teachers find school uniforms to be oppressive, atn with a send in activist to help abolish them. >> you call us, we will activist resident and he or she or they will find out how they will do the research, they will do all the organizing. teachers and parents show up and we dismantle. and we hope to have hundreds of them around the country doing this work. >> love has a history of making controversial statements on twitter like this tweet from 2020 in which she writes: mediocre greedy rich white men are killing us. it's unclear how the department of ed chose atn as the resource for race and social, emotional

learning. although biden's deputy education secretary cindy martin is an advocate of be tina love. last fall while she was still superintendent of schools invited love to stop student murdering black student. >> there is a legal disclaimer from the department of ed that says any resources or links they do offer, quote: do not necessarily reflect the positions or policies of the department. we did reach out to the department and atn but have not heard back from either. steve? steve: all right, aishah, thank you very much. >> we have interesting stuff. joining us right now first time we have had somebody in studio on the couch with us in over a year lawrence jones. lawrence, good morning to you. lawrence: i know that's a lot for you guys to process our investigative team has been working on this for weeks. steve: it's fascinating because everybody wants to reopen the schools so the government has put out this handbook on how to do it but then tucked away it says to help with race and

emotional learning they just mentioned this one group has connection to deposit is i secretary of education. >> this is not a conversation about reform. big question parents that are at home watching this package should ask themself are they okay with reforms or be like this group that want to burn down the system? steve: they said that specifically? >> they said that very specifically in the video, these are brilliant people. they know exact will he what they are doing. the big question as well, brian, should activists be in the classroom, ms. love had nor statement. i want to play for you guys. that our team grabbed. and this just shows you the picture, the big picture which is to destroy the system from within. let's take a look. >> i have been teaching now for 19 years. and i have been doing this work of completely disrupting systems in elementary schools and school systems for those 19 years.
4:37 am
making sure that we're teaching sbl through a model of equity. >> it's important for a network like this to be diligent and explicit about that fight against white supremacy. a lot of people talking about crt and progressive policies embedded within schools and in the culture. this is why i say it's hard to get rid of it because it's already there. they have been teaching it for a while. as he says i have been teaching for 19 years and i have been putting this stuff out. these are activist teachers that have a doctrine they believe in that they are now promoting to other teachers. brian: while in denial. watch other networks say crt doesn't exist looking to find something to run against for political reasons. when they push on this curriculum, they say we didn't tell you to click on hyper link we didn't tell you that's part of it that's a choice. >> what i would say not just crt progressive world view marxist world view. it's the belief that america
4:38 am
cannot be reformed. you can't fix some of the issues that we may have that you have got to burn the system down. that's what they truly believe. ainsley, another thing i will say about this is that you see a conversation here, just like with black lives matter, where people have legitimate grievances and they want to come to the table and talk about those issues. but the organization itself is very flawed. we see this in cuba right now. the cuban people who stood with black lives matter they said why aren't you standing with us? we thought that you wanted justice for black people. we are afro cuban and do you know what they say? well, it's really not communism there. socialism has been good for you. so you see this infighting. people believe in this stuff but they don't know what the people stand for and that's what the chaos is. ainsley: lawrence my question is this is the department of education with a recommendation for opening up our schools, talking about covid. and then if you scroll through the email that i guess was sent out to 74,000 school districts. you scroll down to page 9. and then there is this section
4:39 am
with that hyper link and you click on it and it's to this organization. what does that have to do with reopening our schools? >> it doesn't but they use race as a guide. and as you -- aishah correctly pointed out they put at the bottom of the page. look, this doesn't necessarily reflect our viewpoint. brian: why do you put it in there? >> that's the only link that gives them some sort of guidance like i say, guys, we can't run from this at this point. there is staffers, there is teachers, there are people that are in academia, thought leaders that are everywhere now. putting this in the school. it's just not a matter of banning it the question is what do parents do back at home? they need to look at what their kids are reading. you have got to beat them to the punch, have these conversations at home. brian: beat your school to the punch? >> the problem is you don't know -- you send your kids to school and trust the teacher is going to be teaching them something you agree with. >> that's exactly right. >> they are not. you can't just put the burden on the teachers. so the audience, they are probably freaking out right now because they have heard and wondering if their kids.
4:40 am
they can email us at friends at fox news. if they have syllabuses. examples, bring it to us. our research will pick te'o part and see if it's a part of that network. steve: lawrence, don't you think given now that this has been revealed now just now for the first time that parent need to ask the school district, hey, are you consulting with this abolitionist teaching network for social justice. lawrence: they need to ask the schools but also ask the teachers. because, as you see, this teacher said i have been doing this for 19 years. so, it's not a matter. you think we heard about crt 19 years ago. these are people already there they recruit these teachers. they teach them this philosophy. again, i continue to say, reforms need to happen. interestingly enough this group is anti-school choice but they are pro-teacher's union. brian: the students who want to get an a and teachers want to keep their job. do they have to go along with this in order to keep their job
4:41 am
and they have to go along with this in order to get an a. that's where they are going to need some help from the outside to help with the curriculum. it's not just that it's the kids as well. as i reported on in loudoun county the kids aren't turning on the teachers. never turning on the parents. the burden of proof is the parents now. the parents have to prove that this is wrong now. so this just shows you. brian: oh my goodness. ainsley: thank you, lawrence, excellent job. lawrence: we will continue to do this all morning. ainsley: haven't heard from the department of he had can a. lawrence: after multiple times reaching out to them. ainsley: fashion magazine marie claire backlash after calling for tvs and movies to show more abortions. the controversy coming up. nothing will stop me from vacation. no canceling. flexible cancellation. kayak. search one and done.

evaluated multiple times by qualified people to not fall under the gain of function definition. i have not lied before congress. i have never lied, certainly not before congress, case close. ainsley: it doesn't fall into gain of function. nih gave $600,000 to echo health alliance which then paid the wuhan lab to go out and find the bats and study the virus, see how it would infect humans. that is -- many people say gain of function, but he says that's not the definition of gain of function therefore he's not involved. steve: because -- gain of function is defined by nih is not what dr. paul was talking about. it sounds like they are talking about exactly the same thing but, you know, there's a loophole that dr. fauci has jumped through. rand paul made it very clear and we heard in the soundbite, we
5:05 am
want to make sure. what you will tell us is the truth, right? he says what dr. fauci said yesterday was not and he's going to be calling the department of justice to see about looking into whether or not dr. fauci yesterday lied to congress. here he is last night with sean. >> i will be sending a letter to the department of justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to congress. we have scientist that is will line up by the dozens to say that the research he was funding was gain of function. he's doing this because he has a self-interest to cover his tracks and to cover his connection to wuhan lab. brian: so all dr. fauci could do call me a liar but he never address the fact that is we laid out. as josh reagan wrote and tweeted after he heart this, he wrote the book, chaos under heaven that really looked at the relationship between china, the u.s. and dr. fauci, he was investing in this before the pandemic happened, how china

infiltrated every aspect of our society. he wrote, hey, guys, fauci was wrong. nii funding wuhan research and didn't meet to avoid oversight mechanism. sorry or not sorry if it doesn't fit the narrative. he's flust rated that more people aren't about this and fauci wants to play about bobble head and brad pitt playing him on snl but he needs real questions like this. steve: as rand paul pointed out millions of people around the world have died and we need some answers. did that leak out of the lab or was it, you know, something from nature and were they doing gain of function and it's pretty easy, just like they say, follow the money and figure it out. ainsley: admiral bratt girard
5:07 am
was on and this was his reaction. >> probably dr. fauci was hiding behind technical definitions of what the nih might consider, quote, gain of function research. what they did fund was exactly what rand paul said, they funded researchers to go in the hundreds of miles away into the back of bat caves, extract dangerous viruses from bats that have never been seen by humans before and bring them to a city of tens of millions of people in wuhan. that is dangerous research and senator paul's questions deserve to be answered. i hope it never happens again that a witness that's public health official calls a u.s. senator a liar and doesn't know what he was talking about when clearly senator paul read the paper and had important points to be made. ainsley: that paper was called discovery of a rich gene pool of
5:08 am
bat tsars coronavirus, new insights of the coronavirus. that was the title and the paper talks about producing this coronavirus which means it was altered by man and that's gain of function but fauci says the paper was judged up and down by qualified staff as not being gain of function. steve: okay. so that's what he said and that's what dr. paul said. you saw lawrence jones and aishah talk about how billions of dollars are being spent by the federal government for a road map to reopen the schools in the fall. and as we have discovered now, they're directing people who have questions to this outfit that essentially according to lawrence is teaching crt and social justice. so that is the delicious irony many the fact that on sunday in duchess county, new york, north of where we are sitting right

there. they were voted to represent the constituents of texas and it's time for them to do their jobs. ainsley: the message isn't getting out there. very few media outlets that are talking about it. let's talk about covid cases with the migrants in your state of texas. the border patrol says 44 agents have tested positive. 5 of them are in the hospital because of this surge, the migrant surge, it's up 900%, they are 135,000 río grande detainees. your reaction? >> i went to the border multiple times. we went to carrizo springs, hhs facility where they have unaccompanied minors. they told me 20% of all the kids they were receiving, 20% showed up covid positive. 5% converted covid positive. 25% of the kids that they were
5:22 am
receiving were covid positive. the kids are being put on planes, trains, automobiles and they have been out there pushing for the entire last year trying to shame everybody into wearing masks and social distancing, pushing for mandates for masks and vaccines that they are going to allow the borders to be open like this. unvaccinated population like this to spread covid all over the country. it's so hypocritical. ainsley: they are spreading it in washington, d.c. and they'll be a trickle effect probably and when you look at the border agents, they are down there risking their lives to protect the country and they are coming down with covid and 5 of them are in the hospital. thank you so much, congressman, for being on with us. >> i appreciate it. ainsley: straight ahead charles payne and joyy jones will tell us about upcoming town hall to help militants get back to workforce. prince harry is cashing in with

nobody will do what harry is telling from cradle to life. steve: given the fairy tale nature of the royal family. we have always been presented a certain view of the royal family until the crown on netflix and, you know, this now because he's layed bare his family some members racist and completely dysfunctional. >> the dysfunctionality could be discussed. the idea that there's anything racist about the family is preposterous and what i think is most interesting about this in a way is the total shift in ethics in just the few generation that is we see. when the majesty the queen and

in her 20's, not during the war and most famous broadcast as young woman in her 20's, she said to great britain and the common wealth, my life she said whether long or be short will be dedicated to your service and that's what she's done. in 90's, late 90's, she's still doing that day in and day out. she's giving herself to the service of her nation. now here is the thing. skip a couple of generations to harry and meghan, everything that they talk about is themselves, my memoir, my journey by prince harry. meghan in a famous interview told reporter, it's not enough to just live is it, life has to be more about more than that, you have to thrive. it was all about me, me, me. how i feel and here is the thing about it.
5:33 am
this great journey this couple are on. the queen was on an extraordinary journey, truly extraordinary journey of dedication and service to others. they are not on an interesting journey. the only journey they are on is discovering how much money they can get into their bank account and it's grotesque. steve: to that point he's getting 20 million for the book. they have a 50 million-dollar deal with spotify. i think they've only done one podcast and netflix is coughing up $150 million for meghan and harry, so clearly there's some interest. >> good money off the bad. steve: douglas, thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: you're welcome. all right. coming up today on fox business, town hall is going to focus on helping military members enter the workforce, charles payne will host and joey jones will be joining him and you can see them

>> that's okay. steve: go ahead, ainsley. ainsley: tell us about the town hall today. charles: that's not even a fraction of the real story and, of course, i was in the military. i served, i didn't get a chance to -- to fight or anything but my father was -- he fought in vietnam and i watched him, his whole adult life never get the jobs he thought he was worthy of. honestly, i've had the opportunity to interview ceo's, politicians, everyone, my father still one of the most intelligent people that i have ever met. it's not just about people in the military vets getting jobs, it's about them getting jobs that are worthy of them and having upside opportunity and being welcome back in opportunity and these are things that joey knows firsthand. i'm a solution-oriented person, i'm going to show you where to go, what resources are out there and truly help and not just going to be what was us and it's
5:41 am
about solutions and making things right. steve: we heard there's millions of jobs that are unfilled right now. so many people are saying, hey, i will take the lucrative unemployment benefits and sit on the couch. for the most part, military members are driven people, they want to go out and work. >> you hit on a key aspect. there's a big turnover. aside from veteran unemployment, there's veteran turnover. companies say you know what, i want to hire 100 veterans and hire them and within a year or two years, three years all of the veterans turn over and leave the job. either because they didn't prepare the veterans for the job they were qualified for and the bigger problem you have to have a culture of mission and the culture that regardless if our job is to move boxes, we are doing it for this purpose and that's what veterans key on. we are used to crappy tasks and long days but we know it's for a greater purpose. and so for me a lot of my work has been helping veterans
5:42 am
understand the world they are getting into and not just get employers to hire veterans in mass but helping employers understand what kind of culture veterans thrive in. brian: sometimes the skill they acquire in the military don't necessarily transfer over and if you're in the infantry and you're fighting and you come back and look at new york city to find a job, how do you find that, how do you get people's skills and a job? >> the great thing is that there are so many resources out there. there's so many out there. brian: within the military? charles: within the military, coming out of the military, post military, all kinds. we found a whole will the of them. employers have to understand as well, listen, i honestly believe in my life that what i've seen 95% of the people can do 95% of the jobs. so first and foremost if you have someone who is motivated, someone who is intellectually curious, someone who wants to learn, all those other things can be accommodated, that's what you have with military vets. ainsley: joey, tell us how you
5:43 am
found a job when you came back to the united states? >> a lot better than talking than taking hard bombs. i got injured in afghanistan taking bombs apart and so when i came back i didn't have legs and i needed to go to school, they actually brought college to walter reed. i was in one of those gogo chairs, my arms didn't work and i was speaking papers into a dragon device and i didn't know what for, i ended up in georgiatown eventually and the work i got into was nonprofit work. how i found the job, i started helping folks and eventually somebody want today pay me for it. people ask how i got to where i can come on tv or help the nonprofits, i did it for free for six years. steve: look at that. charles, there are jobs pretty much for everybody of every background? charles: absolutely. you referenced it earlier, sadly it's met by the biggest defacto
