wheel. today it is the boardwalk in wildwood which as you can see they built bigger and better than ever. rachel: looks fun. steve: look who is here again today. brian: how many days is this in a row. rachel: i will be here through the weekend. brian: how many outfits do you have. i know steve travels with one suit. rachel: one reason i had like wardrobe yesterday going -- i need more clothes. took care of that yesterday. brian: keep us up to date. rachel: not very divaish. steve: keep you up to date. something terrible happened at 1:15 in the afternoon yesterday. in jack london square. in oakland, california. that is former senator barbara boxer, she was taking a phone call a business call. she chose kind a quiet street.
3:03 am
and she noticed out of the corner of her eye some young man was following her. and then she was getting a little nervous and then they jumped in a car and he thought oh, that's good. then the driver jumped out. came over to her and strong armed her. put his arm -- shoved her. put his arm around her waist and took her phone. and she screamed at him why did you do that to a grandmother? i need to call my grand kids. rachel: it's really unbelievable how safe these streets are when it comes home to roost with somebody like barbara boxer a leading figure in california. they were scoping her out and saw that she was vulnerable and elderly. and that's the target. brian: if you need something like this does not get people's attention over in california in the city of oakland, i don't know what does. she tweeted this out earlier today. former senator barbara boxer was assaulted in jack london center in oakland. pushed her in the back stole her
3:04 am
phone and jumped into a waiting car. she is thankful she was not seriously hurt. if you have seen some of this video that we get from the ring door bells to police video released in major cities across the country. the law enforcement agencies are saying one thing crime is out of control. you told us to step back, and this is what you get. david brown, who used to run things in dallas, now the superintendent in chicago, is he overseeing and i will pick that up in a second, i apologize for that. steve: everything okay down there? [laughter] brian: i'm not sure. i think it might be someone from laura ingraham's show last night. steve: he woke up. brian: or the weekend. it wasn't just california, it was also chicago, again, where 27 hit by gunfire, at least 11 died. people are having a problem with the fact that there is nobody who is paying for the crimes they are committing. especially the police chief. is he frustrated by the system, listen. >> what we can do different is
3:05 am
challenge the courts to render chicago safe by holding violent offenders in jail longer. not releasing murderers back into our community. murder. i don't think there is another city in this country releasing people charged with murder back into the community on electronic monitoring that should be a headline in this city and it's not. it should be adversaries of courts. use the same energy that you just asked me that question to ask the courts why are you releasing violent people, dangerous people, the christian police officers arrest and charge back into the community. to create this environment of lawlessness. if we had our druthers. we would keep violent people in jail longer. we would hold them accountable for the violence. brian: sounds like the police
3:06 am
chief d.c. rachel: you can understand his frustration. the cops are arresting the people or trying to arrest the people committing the crimes. and the prosecutors aren't charging them and the courts are letting them go. there is a reason behind it. i'm sorry, but, you know, there were prosecutors that were funded by george soros and eric holder, they had a group together. and they said we are going to put prosecutors in who will not, you know, prosecute criminals who will let them out. it was very effective. by the way, you can make a huge change in this liberal mindset because it doesn't take as much money to fund a prosecutor's race as it does a congressional race, a federal race. brian: no one pays attention. rachel: this happened. this has happened not just in big cities but any size and smaller communities it's having an impact. steve: no kidding. i wonder was this what they had in mind when they started to do that? that is where we are. you look at barbara boxer who immediately called the police. there is thousand dollars reward
3:07 am
out if somebody can figure out who did it. i didn't get a look at his face. young guy, probably a teenager. she said the most important thing was i went to the verizon store and i was able to wipe that phone so my data was gone but then from the cloud i was able to bring back all the picture us of the grandkids. but she was very -- she -- look, she was a democratic senator from the great state of california for a very long time. she knew that the optics of this are really bad. and so in the "l.a. times," she talked to them and she said, listen, i want to push back on anybody who suggests that this is a function or a result of democratic policies. she said democrat have no intention of defunding the police they want better policing. rachel, you touched on it. there is randomness to this crime wave all across the united states. you don't know where it's going to happen next. a marine was at a baptism here
3:08 am
in new york city. just walking through times square he gets shot in the back. family leaving a toys r us gets shot just randomly. it feels like nobody anywhere is safe because you just don't know where it's going to happen. that's what senator lindsey graham was talking about last night how the criminals don't feel scared or afraid. steve: there is no cons sequence. are. >> we have lost deterrence big democrats cities and states have lost deterrence. people don't feel afraid to assault someone in the street. nobody feels afraid to go into walmart and clean out the place because nobody in the prosecution level is going to do a damn thing democrat democratic party catch and release when it comes to criminals and illegal immigrants. we have lost deterrence in the border and lost deterrence in the major cities in our country and the only way you are going to regain it is for these people
3:09 am
to suffer at the ballot box. brian: you would think they would realize the consequences of their action. lack of prosecution. emptying the prisons, make the police the bad guys and have them back off put down the badge or actually quit. you are not aoc and this is what president biden is dealing with he has an insane group of people who his left. ao crmpleght says she is calling now abolish incars seller system i want to accomplish our system she has nobody to call because they took her phone. 68-year-old walking down the street got the crap beat out of him at 9:05 he wonders when his wrist is going to heal and nose be rebuilt. he had the audacity to walk down the street in brooklyn. out of control. safest city. chicago out of control. do you know what they did in chicago a year ago.
3:10 am
lori lightfoot had ambitious plan to narrow the safety gap. flood the street with cops. not only did it not go down it went up. steve: an instance where a guy walked into a wall greens in san francisco. we are trying to get the video. he took the backpack off and went counsel the aisle and he filled it up. rachel: he went shopping. steve: there are employees going sir, what are you dismoog he said i need it. they said please put it back. they had store security. nobody could stop him because, once again, there are no consequences because those crimes have been cat gore rise add misdemeanor and the prosecutor just throws them right now. why not. fill them up. walked out. he is gone. brian: no other network is covering the crime surge. rachel: no, they are not. we're covering and it we are going it cover more on the cody cases ticking up as the migrant cases cross the southern border.

southern border. >> major reversal from the biden administration certain migrant families don't qualify asylum won't be expelled. brian: i'm a little confused. griff jenkins joins us from washington with what this means plus the spike in covid cases at the border. who would have thought coming from a country without vaccines we would get covid cases at the border? griff: good morning, brian, rachel and steve. with no notice or explanation dhs quietly released a statement yesterday resuming the trump era policy that accelerates the procedure of families saying, quote: certain family units who are not able to be expelled under title 42 will be placed in expedited removal proceedings, continued the biden-harris administration is working to build a safe, orderly and immigration system. this as has expelled under title 42 health provision protecting americans from covid more than 750,000 migrants this fiscal year. border patrol officials are worried that could soon be
3:19 am
lifted and it comes as the rio grand valley sector is seeing 900 percent spike in covid cases among migrant detainees with 27% of unaccompanied children positive. and nearly 70 border patrol agents infected. in fact, some migrants are coming now sister norma who runs humanitarian respite is center in the rgv has asked border patrol to stop dropping them off. meanwhile some members of congress led by representative ayanna pressley is demanding the administration immediately lift title 42. when i asked her about it, she had little to say. watch. griff: are you concerned it would increase the likelihood the spread of covid the cbp confirmed yesterday for us there is 900 percent increase. >> no. griff: you are not worried it would cause a bigger spread. >> no. >> griff: are you asking dhs secretary mayorkas to ignore? >> we followed up with the press secretary to find out more about the timing. he has not gotten back to us.
3:20 am
all this comes as ice says they have arrested 302 criminal migrant sex offenders since jun. steve, rachel, brian? >> all right. griff. thank you very much. starting with the story that he was talking about from the "new york times" where now they're fast tracking deporting whole families, you know, they are doing something smart for a change. they are actually interviewing them right at the border as they apprehend them. and essentially what they are doing is they are trying to figure out if they qualify for asylum. and the bar is very easy. it's do you have a credible fear of persecution? if you don't, they are just turning them around. here's the thing. immigration advocates say this is denying these migrants. these people who are non-citizens their due process rights. what they want is they want the federal government to release them into the united states of america, into the interior, give them a court date and then, 80% of them will never show up. >> border patrol says many of
3:21 am
them aren't even getting court dates it says like to be determined. steve: we are in a hurry. >> to be determined and that's it. what are the chances of you coming back when you don't even have a date you need to come back? how are they going to find you? steve: right. >> more importantly these cases of covid we saw this earlier in the year when we saw the brazilian variant. that was so dangerous. fauci was asked about it and he said i don't want to get political. i'm not going to talk about covid and the border. and people coming here illegally. now we have, again, this situation we're seeing spikes in covid increases federal government health bureaucrats, politicians people like fauci have no problem masking up our kids hampering our businesses but no problem letting people in who as you mentioned brian have very low vaccination rates coming from guam, central america, et cetera. brian: the numbers are unbelievable. testing the ones they give 70 border agents have tested positive.
3:22 am
27% of all the unaccompanied children have tested positive. now 9 rio grand valley sector catholic charities run this facility so many people you got stop bringing people they kept dropping them off anyway because they have nowhere to put them. in the middle of the pandemic variant we can't control admittedly and people from tore countries vaccination rates and very few to give to their people coming across the border and not testing with any consistency. not a great combination. even though they are just having expedited removal is a positive step it is just a step according to the lieutenant governor dan patrick. >> much too little too late, laura, it's still bursting over the dam like a flood coming into the united states. i think the reason they did this, laura, this goes back to a trump policy is they are worried about covid. right now a lot of these people are coming from guam, i think their vaccination rate is about 12%, 14%, honduras 7% to 8%.
3:23 am
they have a lot of potential covid cases come in. and, of course, that is an issue for them as you talked about on the top of the show. this has gotten out of hand. he said he would control this. i think that's what this is about. >> he makes a great point, as the administration says right now regarding covid, the pandemic is with the unvaccinated and 99% of the people coming in on our southern border are unvaccinated. we are still restricting international travel unless you want to come into the united states of america and that come on in here and you probably have covid. brian: 671 new covid cases reported on monday in hidalgo county on the border. isis has just made very few arrests but some of which are sex offenders. and i got news for you. for those of how are worried that the people coming to our country illegally will be rewarded. the democrats are reportedly eyeing a path to citizenship of 8 million people here illegally in their new reconciliation panel that's going to be jammed down our throats within the next
3:24 am
couple of weeks. keep an eye on that. >> absolutely. another thing keeping our eye on is espn. never cease to amaze us how they politicize sports. it's with olympics. espn sports writer is a little worried about the flag at the olympics. he is very concerned about it. take a listen. >> i love opening ceremonies. then i just realize man, particularly after these last four years i had it wrong. nationalism is not good. we have seen the rise in white nationalism. nationalism is not good this whole idea i keep thinking back on the capitol riots and i saw a lot of, you know, u.s. flags. >> right. >> so now when i see the flag like raising it what -- what america am i living in are the ones that don't think we should be here? steve: so, you know, it's team u.s.a. so naturally they would be carrying a u.s.a. flag and he is
3:25 am
troubled by that and then. rachel: that's racist. steve: talking with the rise of white nationalism. if it's unclear he is suggesting team u.s.a.'s delegation was involved in white nationalism or if he thought they had racist views. he was not clear about that. but he was clear seeing the red, white and blue being carried by that member of team u.s.a. was really bugging him because it reminded him of something that happened in this country in the first week of january. brian: 168 george foreman famously won the gold medal. go on to win the heavyweight championship twice. same olympics where john carlos and tomi smith put up their fist for black oppression in america. george foreman grabbed a flag and walked around the ring. has he changed his views? here is what he said. >> your regular joe american citizen, we built all these things. it was us who put up the money for the stadiums, the gigantic stadiums all around the country. we're going to be in sports.
3:26 am
it's our sports. we can't let any kind of misbehavior turn us away from going out there and america, this is the home of the glass slipper, if you know what i mean. some of us had nothing. never were anything. and now it's like a cinderella story. it will continue. if we americans just stick together. there will be some demonstrations, but that's the way it is with kids when they are not heard. they are generally just seen and we do things that really are not good. but, america is going to be here. it's going to be strong. it's the right country to be. in and it's a great athlete who comes and represents america. we just got to showcase it a little bit more. that's all. steve: well, that's all. rachel: brian, i loved your interview with him last week. it was incredible. he said that he had a lot of pressure from, you know, leftist groups trying to get him. brian: to pull back. rachel: onto pull back and not

love america. i can't quit loving america. you will never let it happen. brian: real quick his it aal was with marriage. he said from the moment i got married, it's, you know, for better or for worse. so that's my wife. you better not say anything. and i'm going to deal with that and i'm in this for the long haul. rachel: i love it. brian: indicating nothing is ever perfect but no other place i would rather be. steve: he is married to america not going to divorce america. brian: that's the analogy. steve: indeed or leave it. it is 6:27 in the east. governor andrew cuomo of new york taking what appears to be a victory lap after the department of justice dropped its investigation into a portion of the nursing home scandal. >> it was toxic politics. and it did a lot of harm and a lot of damage. brian: yeah, just part of the investigation dropped. janice dean lost both of her in-laws to covid-19 inside

3:32 am
it violated the basic concept of justice in this nation. and it did a lot of harm and a lot of damage. to say to people who lost a loved one in a nursing home it could have been appreciated. it was a mistake by government bureaucrats. that's why your loved one died. how cruel. brian: wow, our next guest both lost family members in nursing homes due to the governor's policies. joining me now is our very own meteorologist janice dean and ron kim who have become fast friends through this and allies because they want to get to the truth. first off, janice for you, was this the right time for him to say he was exonerated? janice: no. i'm so used to this and i'm sure ron will say the same thing. is he like a broken record. he blames everybody else except the guy who signed the mandate for 46 days to put covid positive patients into the nursing homes. the "new york post" this morning
3:33 am
got it absolutely right. here it is. >> liar. he is a liar. brian: they chronicle this, ron kim. brian: ron, what exactly did the doj do and what exactly is left to these investigations? first into the nursing homes? >> doj closed the original investigation. that's into the publicly run facilities. which is a very small portion of the entire nursing home industry. the civil investigation is still open for the entire nursing homes and the criminal investigation, more importantly, is still ongoing. for the governor to take the media, national stage and take a victory lap and play the victim while thousands of families like janice and mine still seeks the truth, that is what is cruel. brian: here is the thing melissa der rosa chief of staff told lawmakers on a call basically apologized for stonewalling when
3:34 am
it come to the total deaths. on the record. is he going to throw her under the bus? >> he will do whatever he has to do, say and do to save his own behind. is he a dangerous man that's drowning. and we need to continue to hold him accountable. he thinks this is toxic politics? this is not politics. this accountability so we can get the state in the right direction so we don't repeat the same mistakes. brian: janice, he feels like he has been thrown a life preserver and is now on shore. should he feel as though he beat all these investigations? what's left? >> he better prepare for the a.g.'s report which is coming in the next couple of weeks there are multiple investigations here. brian: the new york attorney general? janice: absolutely. there is an fbi investigation and new york attorney general's investigation that's supposed to come out in the next couple of weeks. i think he has to prepare himself. i would love for him to talk to victims' families in a town hall and tell us face to face that he
3:35 am
is the victim. and see what happens. but he won't. because he is a coward and a bully. brian: i know you guys understandably focused on the pursing homes. what is also left, at least 10 shower. 10 sexual harassment accusers. got 5 million as an advance was that. like his brother whether it came to test. how much do these other investigations matter? what's he doing about his own a.g., democratic a.g. investigating him? >> it's all a pattern of abuse of powerful and abuse of behavior here. he chased down a $5 million book deal at the peak of the pandemic. that is the main reason why he committed fraud. he himself last year, it is criminal fraud to lie about nursing home death toll. and that is precisely what he did. we need to again hold him
3:36 am
accountable for that. brian: all right, janice, is he starting to marginalize the investigation by latisha james using surrogates to say it's all political. real quick? janice: he is trying to demean her investigation into him saying she going to run for governor. victims shaming them again. this governor needs to go. if new york doesn't understand that yet, wake up. brian: right. he is not out of the wood. don't let his arrogance fool you. ron kim and janice dean, thank you so much. janice: you are welcome. >> thank you. brian: meanwhile, 24 hours before the top of the hour. >> politico says statements like this haven't caused americans to not trust the covid vaccine. >> let's say there is a vaccine approved and even distributed before the election. would you get it? >> i would not trust donald trump. brian: yeah. unbelievable. what does pollster lee carter think? she bucks politic facts in just

steve: okay. there you heard it republicans are now calling on the administration to refocus their vaccine messaging. here with more on what's going on. let's dial in lee carter pollster, president and partner of maslansky and partners. lee, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so, politifact said that essentially they said that the clips used in the video were selectively edited to take the statements out of context and as it turns out, harris and joe biden, they didn't do anything wrong. >> listen, i'm not sure that they did anything wrong. they are entitled to their opinion and they were reluctant to trust the vaccine. that's how a lot of americans feel today. and so i think if they were to refocus and say we're going to have a conversation without judgment, we used to be concerned too. this is what we learned that changed our mind. i think the whole tenor of this conversation needs to shift away from one of judgment and one to empathy.
3:43 am
because people have really valid concerns about why they haven't taken the vaccine yet. i have done a lot of research for this. it's not the way a lot of people would have you believe that people that haven't taken the vaccine it's not that they are kooky or uneducated. they have very real valid concerns they want more information and they want it addressed before they go and take the vaccine. steve: just to be clear because we had a teleprompter issue right there. politifact declared that the claims that biden and harris justed the covid vaccine under trump false despite past rhetoric as republicans say the biden administration needs to refocus their vaccine. politifact says it was all out of context soundbite with harris and biden out of context. the writer actually put the context there. it looks like the politifact organization is just running interference for the administration. >> and i don't think it's doing

them any service. if they -- i mean, we can all remember the soundbites from the debate and from the interviews when they were running in 2020 that did say that they had concerns. and they -- you know, there is nothing wrong with their concerns. their concerns are valid. and so i think, you know, it's a mistake for politifact to get in here and say this isn't the truth. i think that a lot of people had concerns then and people still have concerns now. and we need to be able to talk about them, again, without judgment. but with understanding. and saying we need to get a place that you can get unbiased information. steve: see, that's the key. unpiesed information because. politifact is a fact checker. and you figured, okay, they're right down the middle that outfit is not right down the middle t doesn't appear to be that wait a minute one of the things that we have been hearing from all the folks that we have been talking to is that they don't have a place that they feel that they can trust to get
3:45 am
unbiased information. everybody is pushing an agenda. and when you see an organization like this, it's supposed to be the fact checker. it's supposed to be the unbiased one saying this i think it causes more questions. so what i have seen, too. people just don't know where to go. there is no place for them to get the information. the information is constantly shifting and changing. one day they feel completely safe. if you look at what is happening even with the mask conversation. masks are going to keep you safe or not going to keep you safe. you have have to wear one mask or none at all. wear two masks. those shifts in information is making people confused. and you can't blame them. steve: well, there is a lot of information out there. you just have to look at everything and try to figure it out for yourself. we report, you decide. all right. lee, thank you very much for joining us live. >> great to see you. steve: all right. quarter before the top of the hour. let's check in with senior meteorologist janice dean for fox weather. she is outside with one of the greatest chicken finger outfits on the planet. janice: absolutely.

rachel: welcome back to "fox & friends." calling on ivy league schools to give to minority students instead. they write talk is not enough. open up spaces for black and latin x community by refusing to send your kids to ivy league schools or "u.s. news and world report" top 50 schools. the group even reportedly threatening to publicly name those who don't sign the pledge. our next guest graduated from columbia university with masters in journalism. this is host rob smith, he is the host of the rob smith is problematic podcast. rob, he joins me now.
3:54 am
welcome, rob. >> thank you, thank you. rachel: so here's what i'm a little bit confused about. my understanding is all things being equal. grades, test scores that it was actually easier for black and brown people to get into these schools anyway. >> no, it is. especially after decades of affirmative action. rachel: right. >> i think that this far left group has a couple of things wrong. first of all, there is this idea that minority students, whether they are black or latina, latin x is ridiculous. rachel: i hate that term, too. >> the idea that black and latino kids somehow need give something up in order to be successful in ivy league universities. that's a false idea first of all isn't second idea is very elitist idea. that's the idea that the ivy leagues are somehow some gold plated path to riches and success for working class african-american and latino students. that is simply not the case. like i said, we have gone through about decades of affirmative action. what nobody talks about among
3:55 am
black and latino kids in the ivy league is the fact that so many of them get there. they come from public schools that are not really the greatest public schools in the world. and so when they're there. they are forced to compete with very wealthy kids that have been privately educated pretty much their entire lives and they fall behind which is one of the reasons why there is this push towards making that racist. and sort of bringing down the difficulties of some of the work there. so the idea that just because of black kid gets into an ivy league school all of a sudden they will be successful, i don't think that's the right idea. rachel: you bring up such a great point the public elementary in high school. if you get that right. you will have kids who milo might actually be able to succeed in ivy league regardless of their color. we asked dallas justice for their statement they said this we understand this is a minor sacrifice for privileged families. we think it's the least they can do if they are truly allies of our community. and my question to you, rob, where does this end? you know, what more should white
3:56 am
allies, woke allies of this movement do? should they just not just sacrifice their children to the movement? should they also sacrifice their net worth? where does it end? >> the thing is, rachel, it doesn't end anywhere. these far left blm types they have realized that they can hustle and grip brain dead white liberals, the kind of white liberals that put blm signs in their front yard in order to not get bothered. they can pretty much hustle them for anything they want. so, no, it will not end. rachel: that's right. well, listen, we are still looking into this group. we want to find out more about them. and thanks so much for joining us, rob. >> we have interesting discussion. >> thanks. rachel: coming up, turns out the art dealer representing hunter biden has long understanding ties to china. how is this shaping up to be an ethics nightmare for the white house next?

4:03 am
detailing over the last number of months how there is rising crime in big democrat-run cities. yesterday, unfortunately, in oakland, california, barbara boxer, the former u.s. senator, a democrat, was -- she was robbed and she was assaulted in broad daylight at 1:15 in the afternoon. rachel: yeah. knocked down from behind. she was actually being followed and. steve: she was shoved. rachel: and then she was shoved. they took her phone and it's been, you know, a scary incident for her. there was a tweet that came out from barbara about it she says earlier today former senator barbara boxer was assaulted in the neighborhood of oakland. the assailant pushed her in the back. stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. she is thankful she was not seriously injured. that's right. if she had fallen to the ground on the concrete, i mean she is an elderly woman at this point. you know, something could have happened. she said she ran to verizon, i
4:04 am
guess, she wanted to save her grand kids' photos. you know, as she deleted her data she had her priorities. i agree with that you want to save those photos. i think, steve, what bothered me about her statement is she followed it with a statement in the "l.a. times" that you brought up. go ahead and tell them. steve: former senator pushed back at people who would say what happened to her is an example of rising crime under democratic leadership. you know, that apparently was something she was concerned about. and her quote is democrats have no intention of defunding the police. they want better policing. and then she went on to detail how during her senate career. she was all about trying to provide better protection in the community. rachel: how sad that after that incident happened, and she is probably going to get private security right after this. she didn't look out for the other citizens in her state. people who can't afford private security and talk about the policies that have led to that.
4:05 am
brian: meanwhile the private number she has in that phone after years as u.s. senator and democrats in power right now. meanwhile if you look at oakland it's a mess. crime gone through the roof. in san francisco, you can't park for 12 minutes on the street without getting your car smashed and your stuff robbed. and then in chicago, we know how bad it was. even over the weekend, 73 hit by gunfire. 11 died. this is about a year since lori lightfoot came out with an ambitious plan, that's her words of a safety gap. she wanted to flood the zone in bad districts which were about all 22 police districts with more cops. with a push to get more jobs for kids and counter act the gangs. it's been an epic disaster. fatal shootings are up 566% from even two years ago. new york city, we show you this horrific video that's out. you have this 68-year-old being knocked to the ground, broken wrist, wrist, broken nose. you watch a woman with a walker get knocked off her feet. and they smashed her walker and smashed her. meanwhile, they are trying to find that guy got a shot of him
4:06 am
walking through the subway turnstile with a clear shot of his face. so he should be arrested soon. i'm sure he will have a nice record. think about this. hit you with homicide numbers, carjackings and tell you how bad it is. you know if you are in the city. number two, cops aren't running from it. they are showing it to you. they are told to step back they're the problem. number three, you also have the incarceration issue. they are emptying the prisons and not keeping people in prison because they are convinced democrats that this country is skewed against black and brown people and, therefore, everyone in prison is there unjustly and people aren't getting a fair shot. you put all this together, it's throwing kerosene on a wildfire. it is just exploding. at one point someone has to step up and acknowledge reality. but it's not being covered on the other stations. rachel: no. in fact, media coverage of the crime crisis is just look at these numbers. cbs on monday night yes, lapse night. zero on the crime crisis. msnbc zero. abc 18 seconds about a police
4:07 am
standoff within a armed man in bakersfield, california where five were killed. then you know that the democrats and allies in the media are worried about the rising crime because they are not covering it whifer they are worried about something. they censor and just like with hunter biden's laptop, they censor those things when they're worried that it's going to impact them politically. and i think it really goes to show there democrats who claim to care about people that claim to care about black and brown people, when it comes to crime and school choice. their policies never help the same. brian: the victims. >> exactly. precisely. >> here's the thing. even though the networks are not covering it people see what's going on in their own towns. rachel: yeah. steve: and there goes somebody taking a bunch of stuff out of that store. how many of those people were arrested? brian: zero. steve: we have no information about it but we have seen stuff. and there is a police officer
4:08 am
right there. and yesterday we were telling you about the abc news poll that showed that over the last 80 days we went from a majority optimistic country to a majority pessimistic country. 55% of the country is pessimistic about the direction we are going. and the abc poll said that, you know what? it has to do with crime. and it has to do with immigration. and then abc, as it turns out. only devoted about less than a minute to talk about their own poll, which makes the administration look bad because, clearly, the honeymoon is over for a lot of people with joe biden. because they thought, you know what? maybe this guy is going to do something different. now, here we are, toward the end of july, and america is experiencing a crime problem like we have not seen in decades. rachel: remember when the "the washington post" said that will.
4:09 am
steve: democracy dies in darkness. rachel: democracy dies in darkness. william jacobson law professor and media critic. cities die in darkness when you don't tell the truth about what's happening there "the washington post" famously said that cities die in darkness. so do cities in shall disservice in people in cities who are victims and contributes to the downward spiral that these cities almost entirely have progressive mayors and suggest some of the lack of coverage is politically motivated. you think, brian? you think that it's politically motivated? brian: this is one thing that you have a choice on certain things. but when it comes to crime it hits home. even the administration knows their numbers are so bad on crime they're starting to try to take action by blaming the gun. meanwhile at 9 minutes after the hour. there is multiple investigations into governor cuomo. he was the golden boy during the pandemic. as soon as trump dropped out they looked into what he was doing. in terms of the nursing homes putting infected patients back in and the death it caused
4:10 am
afterwards and not being candid about the number of people who did die in nursing homes and being caught when your chief of staff was caught on a conference call explains to democrats that they had to keep the number down in order to win an election, governor cuomo, actually taking a bow yesterday. saying he beat the investigation into the department of justice, says they found nothing wrong. and then decided to talk in grand scale about how he is the victim and how justice triumph. i want you to hear what he has to say. then we are going to qualify that on the other end. >> we are not even near the top in terms of percentage of deaths. in nursing homes. why new york? except that it was all politically motivated. to say to people who lost a loved one in a nursing home it could have been appreciated, it was a mistake by government bureaucrats. that's why your loved one died.
4:11 am
how cruel. it was politics. it was it toxic politics. it violated the basic concepts of justice in this nation. and it did a lot of harm and a lot of damage. and it went on too long. steve: so there he was trying to take a victory lap as if he is off the hook. he's not. all the doj said is they would not pursue a probe into the potential violations of the civil rights of institutionalized persons act. that little sliver of troubles for him. that investigation would have only covered 30 state government run homes out of 600 in the state. he is still in great legal peril because the fbi and the doj still, he is the focus of criminal probe by the fbi. by the brooklyn u.s. attorney as well. into their cover-up of the total nursing home death toll, and the
4:12 am
sweetheart deal he got with that $5.1 million book deal where they doctored the numbers and did they do things to make it look even rosier for that man right there so he could get a $5.1 million book advance? rachel: we had assemblyman ron kim on. he has been a great voice along with janice dean on this fight for finding the truth. here's what he had to say. >> civil investigation is still open for the entire nursing homes. and the criminal investigation, more importantly, is still ongoing. for the governor to take the media national stage and take a victory lap and play the victim while thousands of families like janice and mine are still seeking the truth, that is what's cruel. >> he's like a broken record. he blames everybody else except the guy that signed the mandate for 46 days to put covid positive patients in the nursing home. i would love for him to talk to victims' families a town hall
4:13 am
and tell us face to face that he is the victim and see what happens. but he won't. because he is a coward. and a bully. brian: he also has 10 shower. accusers. he also has an ethics violation when it documents friends and family getting tested including cnn ache core chris cuomo, including donors. also finding out when it comes to his book deal that he actually used his staff during work time to write the book for him. so while cashing none the $5 million in the middle of the pandemic as a second wave was just heating up. it's unbelievable he would do the deal. no wonder like 9 people bought the book. steve: yep. we will keep you posted on that. in the meantime. let's talk about another ethical problem for the white house. you know, hunter biden has now decided he is an artist. and there is some suggestion that his art, which covers a number of genres, very interesting. brian: blows through a straw. brian: steve: that's brian's depiction how he creates these works of
4:14 am
art may be sold half a million dollars per piece of art. now he is being represented by george burgess who has art glearls in new york and los angeles. it's interesting, when you look into george berges the garr glars background berges. 2015 resident magazine. he said he wanted to the arrested leader in china. quest magazine he says he travels to china 3 or 4 times a year and solid group of 25 collectors most of them overseas. here's the thing. the buyers are supposed to be confidential. and hunter is not supposed to know who they are. but he is actually going to meet with them when they go okay, so, hunter, tell us about the blue face at the top of that or what was your inspiration on that thing that kind of looks like a shell fish. and he is not supposed to to be with them because the worry is that somebody is going to pay half a million dollars for one of those things to buy
4:15 am
influence, essentially over this white house. rachel: put the pictures back up of those paintings? brian: please. rachel: it's interesting, congress has an art contest and one person wins from each state and they actually display it along the hauls, you know. in the capitol building. all of the artists i have seen and i have passed that many, many times are better than this and, yet, he is getting. steve: anybody related to a president? rachel: exactly. half a million dollars for that the guy that you were talking about, berges, he actually said high plan is to be the lead guy in china. the lead check tore and art dealers discovering and nurturing talent from that region. plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those i consider china's next generation of modern artists. so, hunter biden is the next generation of artists. and we saw this week by the way, you guys. that tom barrick, one of trump's
4:16 am
friends and allies indicted for lobbying and influence pedestrian lick. i guarantee you there is nothing tom barrick has done that is worse than what hunter biden has done. there are two different modes of justice in this country. one for democrats, one for those connected to the media's ideology and one for republicans and trump supporters. brian: fbi is still looking into hunter biden. i guess they are stuck on something. how long douse it take to look at the hunter biden as overseas sales. and with all this money, who is paying tax on it? the big guy? i'm not sure. but tony bobulinski met with senator ron johnson and gave him all this information. sadly ron johnson chairman of the committee and conduct this information. he knows about hunter biden losing his secret service in china and so many other foreign business trips that make no sense. here he is yesterday on hunter's art career. >> we have -- across travel records from secret service where hunter biden had secret service protection 5 and a half
4:17 am
years. during that time period he made 70 trips overseas. think about that. that's about a trip a month. and my question is what was he selling? you know, most international business people have a product or real service that they are selling. other than the biden family name. peddling influence, what was hunter biden cooking? of course, this was before he became the 21st century picasso and, of course, now he is selling that artwork. this stinks to high heaven. the only reason it's not getting more scrutiny in the mainstream press because the mainstream media is part and parcel to the democratic party. they are the communication arm of the democratic party. they are not going to even look at this much less be concerned about it. brian: is he trolling his dad. i'm going with victor davis hanson saying for him to do this and cause this much problem with the white house and get in the face and take time as jen psaki has to explain away his straw paintings. rachel: very passive aggressive. totally passive aggressive.
4:18 am
brian: so in our face. rachel: in the end it isn't about hunter it's about joe biden and the big guy. that's what you mentioned before. why can't they get to the bottom hough is the big guy? there is a laptop full of information. brian: alias email communication. steve: whoever buys the works of hunter da vinci would have ties to the communist party of china. the reason they paid half a million bucks was all that access. brian: basically blistering wendy sherman right now in china as we meet diplomatically. steve: we will keep you posted on who buys that stuff if they tell us. all right. 7:18 now here in the east. jillian joins us with the latest on covid. jillian: that's right. good morning. let's go ahead and begin with this. the department of veterans affairs becomes the first federal agency to mandate the covid-19 vaccine. it will require all frontline healthcare workers to take the shot or face possible removal. when asked about the requirement, president biden appears to snob a reporter you

earlier in the year where she would only speak to reporters at city hall reporters of color. this is her comment during a sway podcast. >> it's not about individuals. it's about systemic racism. it's about calling it like i see it and challenging the heads of the media companies here in town to do a better job of bringing journalists of color, women into the fray. i would absolutely do it again. i would absolutely do it again. i'm unapologetic about it. steve: nic, what do you think about that? >> well, i mean i know she says she is unapologetic about it. i think it was a big mistake. it was just for one day though. so it wasn't forever. for a week, a month. it was a one-day. i believe it was a mistake. i do know she says she is unapologetic and she has to, you know, speak for herself. i can't speak on her behalf though. steve: nick, i know you are

5:03 am
she was attacked. they shoved her and stole her cell phone. she put out a tweet about it or at least her people did. it said earlier today former senator barbara boxer was assaulted in the london square neighborhood of oakland. the assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. of she's thankful that she was not seriously injured. steve: that's right. there is now a $2,000 reward. she told the l.a. times she went home and called the police and told them what happened. i wonder if they're going to go after him or her. she said, pardon me. she said that it appeared that the entire crime was planned because it was coordinated between two guys in a car. she said they were looking for someone vulnerable. it was planned. the guy knew what he was doing. he hit me hard, never said a word. she said if he would have said give me your phone or else, i would have given him my phone.
5:04 am
she said she didn't see the guys' faces, but she felt that they were just teenagers, and she pushed back at people who are going to say this is an example of rising crime under democratic leadership. she said democrats have no intention of defunding the police. they want better policing. rachel: always the politician. i love that. steve: had there been better policing, maybe barbara boxer, the former democratic senator longtime, decades in the senate from california, maybe she would not have been attacked yesterday if there were better policing for oakland, california. brian: i mean, that's one thing too. the bottom line is there are people in her party that want to defund the police. they say it over and over ebb again. and when joe biden was asked about that, he said something ridiculous like they also saying i'm trying to suck the blood of children? a nonsensical comment. meanwhile, the crime is not just in california, although it is finding a home there. it also has a place in chicago
5:05 am
where over the weekend 73 were hit by gunfire,11 have died. and this is a year in which they decided to have an offensive against crime in chicago. remember are, president trump offered the national guard to try to get some law and order, tried to reorganize and do something about the gang problem. david brown is the chicago superintendent, he's got his hands full just like he had in dallas. he's exasperated because there's no hell to pay for offenders, and there's no prison today for the convicted. listen. >> what we could do different is challenge the courts to render chicago safe by holding violent offenders in jail longer, not releasing murderers back into with our community. murderers. i don't think there's another city in this country releasing people charged with murder back into the community.
5:06 am
that should be a headline in this city, and it's not. we should be adversarial to the courts. use the same energy as you just asked me that question to ask the courts, why are you releasing violent people, dangerous people that chicago police officers arrest and charge back into these communitieses? it creates the environment of lawlessness. if we had our druthers, we would keep violent people in jail longer. we would hold them accountable for the violence. brian: does that sound like the police chief from friday? d.c.? rachel: that's why what barbara boxer said was so remarkable. here she is is just the victim of violent crime, and her inis to go, wait a minute, it's not our policies. the police chief in d.c. saying, yeah, it is your policies. the police chief in chicago saying they're letting murderers
5:07 am
out of jail, you have aoc on saturday at a campaign event saying i want to abolish our prison system that's designed to trap black and brown men. and you have democrats like eric holder and george soros funding prosecutors who promise to do, implement these kind of policies that basically let out criminals. so, yes, this is a democrat policy, and the reason barbara boxer says that is because she knows the democrats are in trouble when it comes to crime. you can say it's not happening, you cannot report it on nbc and cbs, they're giving zero time to it, but people feel it. and she just got it. steve: and people feel it here in new york city and state where they got that new bail thing where you can be arrested for pretty much anything, and you don't wind up going to jail, they don't even -- you know what? not even worth my time. but the chief, the superintendent in chicago made such a good point. these people who have been arrested and charged with murder
5:08 am
are being released back onto the street, and what is the deterrent? they're wearing an ankle monitor. finish is that going to stop you from pulling the trigger again? that's why -- and, brian, you gave that number a moment ago, six dozen people were shot over the weekend. and it's just a regular weekend there. things are out of control. we had a chicago alderman on with with us just about an hour ago, and he, he sees the headlines, he knows it's bad. he had this to say. >> they think that ankle bracelets will work better than jailing criminals, serious criminals. most of these are repeat offenders, they're out there, they're cutting their ankle brace letses. they're fearless of nothing, so there's actually no consequences for them. we're afraid of criminals, we're afraid we're going to offend them, and we're letting them run the streets wild. not only in chicago, i should say, as you know, it's across america. brian: and the personal protection is bulked up on all
5:09 am
these city officials while their police budgets are bulked down can. meanwhile, turning to the border crisis, yeah, we have one. griff jenkins joins us outside the white house with a major reversallal on the border situation from the if white house itself. explain this. >> reporter: no notice or big fanfare about it, no explanation either. dhs is quietly releasing a statement resuming a trump era policy about removing illegal migrant families saying in the statement, quote: certain family units who are not able to be expelled under title 42 will be placed in expedited removal proceedings. the biden/harris administration is working to build a safe, orderly and humane immigration system. this as the administration has expelled more than 750,000 migrants this fiscal year under title 42 protecting americans from covid. but officials worried that could soon be lifted, and it comes as
5:10 am
the rio grande sector is seeing that 900% spike in covid cases with migrants and nearly 70 border patrol agents infected. in fact, so many migrants are coming there right now, the humanitarian residence center has asked border patrol to stop dropping them off. meanwhile, some members of congress led by representative ayanna pressley is demanding the administration immediately lift title 42. but when we asked her about it, she had little to say. watch. are you concerned it would spread the likelihood of covid? the cbp confirmed yesterday that there's a 900% -- >> not. >> reporter: you're not worried that it would -- and are you asking secretary mayorkas to ignore -- this as the number of criminal migrants encountered and apprehended continues the rise. i said that they apprehended 302 criminal migrants convicted of
5:11 am
sex offenses since june 4th. steve: i was going to say, griff, in talking to that lawmaker just outside the capitol, it sounded like one of her people said she's got to vote. she was leaving the capitol. that's where you vote. what's she going to vote on and where? >> reporter: that's an interesting question. to tell you the whole story, she held a press conference right there outside the capitol, and then she was going in for another series of voting, but when i put a question to her about the timing of her announcement, she wouldn't talk to me. she got in her car to drive under the protected carriage entrance. i asked the press secretary later could she simply give me a comment about the timing because with rising covid cases, it doesn't seem this is a good time to be lifting title 42. they didn't get back to us. brian: wow. don't let it affect your self-esteem, griff.
5:12 am

5:23 am
that's, i think, put in caught doubt. i think the delta variant is so far not under control, people are wondering if the programs9 that the president's pushing will create inflation, immigration, crime obviously are are issues, withdrawal from afghanistan. things are piling up here. they're not piling up in a good way. and most importantly, the mood of the country has swung really 20 points to the negative from the positive. steve: sure. so right now we're a majority pessimistic country about the future, and the numbers he does the best on and has was covid. but now, you know, to your point, with the delta and now they're talking about maybe they're going to make us wear masks again even though we got the vaccine, you know, that was the deal that joe biden said a couple months ago. he said get the vaccine, you won't have to wear the mask. well, now they're saying even if you have the vaccine, you're probably going to have to wear the mask, and that's not going
5:24 am
to sit well with a lot of people because that's why they got the shot. >> well, once you get six months in, you know, tests come in terms of can you really effectively lead the country or not and how does that work out. i think this is a real test of leadership. will the president lead us out of the delta variant and get us across the finish line with more vaccinations in a bipartisan fashion that brings the country together as he promised, or do they seem to be going down a morety vice isive path and, you know, pointing fingers at republicans. really what's required here is leadership, will the president do it, that's the real test of this presidency right now. steve: sure. and, mark, you know, covid impacts everybody around the country, around the world. something else that, unfortunately, is taking root is crime. you're down in washington. there's been a number of random gun violence incidents, you know, the thing last week at nationals park and then at that nice neighborhood over in logan circle where people got out and
5:25 am
started shooting willy-nilly. that's the kind of hometown issue that people get freaked out about because there's such randomness to this crime wave. >> yeah, i never thought i'd see crime as a national issue again. when i worked with president clinton, it was the number one issue in the country at the time. it was one of the key things that the president moved on on in order to improve. again, i think this is a second real test of hardship. you know, all the statistics -- test of leadership. all the statistics show that crime has gotten worses and is the administration going to do something at a national level. we did 100,000 cops along with other programs. steve: sure. and the fact that there have been members of the president's own party who have called for defunding the police which joe biden says i never said that. i talked about reallocating resources, but it's completely different. >> yeah.
5:26 am
no, i think you're really seeing the kind of rethinking about anything to do with defund the police. i think that's being reversed pretty quickly. i think people are realizing we need the police, we need the right to correct and train police, a lot of support for police reform, but it's incredibly important that we have an active, viable, properly trained police force. i think you're seeing that come through in the polls. steve: mark penn joining us from d.c.. mark, thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: all right. still ahead on this tuesday, she's called to abolish i.c.e. and defund the police. find out what system of justice aoc says needs to go and go now. and republicans are standing in solidarity with cubans fighting for freedom. we're going to talk to senator rick scott and congresswoman nicole malliotakis as they bring the fight against communism to capitol hill. ♪ ♪

5:32 am
do. rubio, cruz and the rest must know that, but they don't care. mere facts will not impede their effort to paint biden as pro-marxist. our next guests are also gathering on capitol hill for thallingly, gop congresswoman nicole malliotakis is a the daughter of cuban immigrants along with senator rick scott and american conservative union chair matt schlapp. math, this is incredible the me because i was speaking with many cubans, i've been doing that throughout the week, can and they all say they do wish trump was in charge, and they do think trump would have already had internet and cell phone access going over island and helping the protesters in that regard in the very least. >> yeah, this is completely wrong. and by the way, rachel, thank you for your coverage of this effort to bring freedom to the people of cuba. the people of cuba will one day be free, we've just got to make sure we retain that freedom in america. and the fact is the obama/biden
5:33 am
policies which are now the biden policies are complete appeasement with the regime in cuba. remember, barack obama thought it was good to have a beer and watch a baseball game with castro. rachel: that's right. >> we have to deprive this regime of financial resources, we have to give these democracy supporters access to the internet which is very cheap and we can do very affordably, and we need to project strength from america. it's hurricane's birthright to stand for -- america's birthright to stand for people who want freedom. rachel: congresswoman, matt makes a great point. we know the former members of obama's administration are running cubas' policy right now for the biden administration. many of the protesters that i talk to think they are just waiting for the protests to get squelched, for the cuban government to end this and for the cuban influence and the marxist influence to continue in the western hemisphere. >> that's absolutely correct.
5:34 am
this is president biden's berlin moment, okay in. rachel: right. >> compare what ronald reagan did in 1987 to what's going on here. very stark comparison. it is so critical9 that the leader of the free world speak out and take a strong stance, rally democracies around the world to get this ill legitimate regime out of cuba and bring -- freedom. remember, cuba is aligning itself with iran, with north korea, with china, with russia. they are spreading the socialist and communist propaganda the venezuela, to bolivia, to nicaragua. here in the united states of america we see a socialist movement and, matter of fact, during the protest last year we saw the hammer and sickle, the communist symbol, painted on buildings in new york city. so it's spreading inside the united states as well which is why if we end it in cuba, we will end it in the western hemisphere and prevent it from spreading further.
5:35 am
rachel: there's no reason to believe this isn't just deliberate appeasement9 of the marxists, o. communists. senator scott, one of the things people really love about you is that you really are a business person first and foremost. so why can't even florida get it done? why can't the private sector in what can be done to bypass what the biden administration is refusing to do to help the people in cuba in. >> number one, they need to shut down the ill legitimate embassy in d.c. we've got to get the internet back on. i've been talking to private companies about how to do it. they need support from our coast guard to make sure that if they're attacked by the cuban regime, they can defend themselves. so i've been reaching out to the coast guard to make sure that they're going to provide support if american business people show up and provide internet access. this is ways to do this. the right thing would be for the biden administration to do it on their own, but they're not. the other thing the biden administration needs to do, talk about these peaceful protesters
5:36 am
that are being shot, kids being taken and put in the military, dissidents who are being tortured. i met with a man's family yesterday, in prison and being tortured, they don't know anything about him right now. biden needs to show up. rachel: yeah. at this point you can only draw the conclusions that the congresswoman drew, he's not interested in helping, and nothing is happening, and at this race, this crucial moment may pass without any help. anyway, thanks for your voices. we'll be following what you're doing to free cuba at that cpac rally which is so important, and thank you all for joining us.
