ball from the reds that could be a young bill hemmer. because he was a sports guy growing up in the area of big red. steve: that's what you thought you? saw bill hemmer? brian: maybe that will be the next host of the 9:00 a.m. hour of dana perino. steve: i saw that and thought that player just made that kid's life. rachel: family moment forever. steve: for the hemmers, apparently. >> bill: that's what i'm thinking. he is the guy you think about when you think of cincinnati. steve: rachel is with us again today. rachel: thank you for having me back. always an honor to fill in for ainsley. steve: it's great to have you. get ready, here we come with the news. get ready, here come the masks. the masks are back. the cdc now has changed its guidelines again because of worries regarding the delta variant. rachel: the agency says fully vaccinated americans should cover their nose and mouth in certain parts of the u.s. brian: certain parts in certain situations, still don't know what the heck they're talking about. griff jenkins joins us live from washington with the president's
3:03 am
insulting messages to unvaccinated americans. griff, you don't even know, i guess you are supposed to wear a mask at the white house when you go to cover it? do you even know what you are doing? are you going to the gym with a mask? are you going to go to the restaurant with a mask what city? griff: good morning, brian, rachel and steve. i have to go to the white house after this hit. i have to have a mask to get in there and really a lot of people across the country have to get those masks out. cdc's director rochelle wolenski says this wasn't something took lightly the science is changing. watch. >> information on the delta variant from several states indicate that it some vaccinated people infected with the delta variant after vaccination may be contagious. this new science is worrisome. and, unfortunately, warrants an update to our recommendation.
3:04 am
griff: mask up indoors substantial and high tabs mission rate. and they are calling for universal masking for all teachers, staff, students and visitors k through 12 classrooms regardless of vaccination status. this as the administration issues their first federal vaccine mandate at the department of veterans affairs requiring all va health facility employees to get vaxxed or face weekly testing. and the president isn't ruling out shots for everyone in the federal government. >> will you require all federal employees to get vaccinated. >> it's under consideration right now. if you are not vaccinated you are not nearly as smart as i thought you were. >> meanwhile, it governor newsom in california and governor cooper in north carolina and governor de blasio in if new york city requiring public employees to get vaxxed. so are vaccine mandates issued under this emergency use authorization illegal? well the doj's office of legal counsel yesterday opined it was indeed despite the vaccine's not
3:05 am
having full fda approval. steve, rachel, brian? steve: that's right. griff, it sounds like the president tomorrow will announce a mandate where everybody has got to get the shot if they work for the federal government or get tested. but it does not sound like it's going to include the military. have you heard that? griff: well, there are reports, if that's coming tomorrow, we expect the president to speak about covid. fox has not confirmed that will there are also reports the military will be excluded. i think what you are going to see is a fierce fight and debate over whether or not this federal mandate is going to hold up because the fda, which is the federal government, has not done their job yet, steve, to approve these vaccines. so for those who say hey, i was waiting to get my shot until the fda fully approved it, they have a point. steve: right. and thank you very much, griff. i didn't have's last point is very important. both the "new york post" and the "wall street journal" both have podesta today talking about why has it taken the fda so long to
3:06 am
give this approval? you know, we're getting it on an emergency vaccination approval basis, but 400 million doses of the moderna and pfizer shots have been given. they have reams of information on it why hasn't the government done it? well the "wall street journal" says it bureaucracy. they just move slow. brian: right. that's what trump did. trump knocked a whole lot of it out of the way. ordered it ahead of time even before it had been approved because he wanted to be ready to launch immediately with operation warp speed. basically looking at a situation where the cdc, which has already been lost so much credibility when it was revealed that the teachers unions were basically writing its policy, when they cut and pasted recommendations from randy weingarten and ended up in the cdc find dance. and now the cdc comes out and says hey, i got an idea. why don't you wear of course thats even though 99% of the people who are hospitalized with serious illness are people that are unvaccinated.
3:07 am
i want everyone just to wear it just in case you get sick. that's not the way you live your life. you don't run from the flu that way. you don't run from other things there is a risk in everything you do to go ahead and tell people to get vaccinated on emergency use, steve, as you mentioned and at the same time say you got to wear a mask anyway, you are making the push to vaccinate hit a brick wall. people are going to throw up their hands, really? nothing is going to change about my life whether i'm vaccinated or not just out of precaution? forget it. rachel: for the president to say people who aren't vaccinated aren't very smart. there is a good reason some people aren't vaccinated. some people already had covid. some people are children who aren't that affected, which by the way, you talk about revolt. there is going to be revolt among parents in the fall. i just think parents are too smart. they are like this isn't affecting my kid. but do you know what is? mental health is. you know, suicide rates are up. and we just know that we are creating this new generation of very neurotic, fearful kids.
3:08 am
and it's also not healthy to wear a mask 8 hours a day if you are a little kid. there are so many reasons for the president to say something like that, to insult people's intelligence when they're making personal decisions about their own health and their own children's health and they there is so much confusion about the mask which is why peter doocy pressed jen psaki about this mask guidance yesterday at the white house. listen. >> why did the president say if you have been fully vaccinated you no longer need to wear a of course that. let me repeat if you are fully vaccinated you no longer need to wear a mask. if it was possible that that was going to turn out to not be true. >> peter, think why we are all dealing with evolving virus no playbook and no historic precedent. what the american people should feel confident in we will continue to be guided by science. look at public health data in order to provide new guidance, if it's needed to, to stabilize and protect the american people. when he made those comments back in may, we were dealing with a very different strain of the
3:09 am
virus than we are today. and delta is more transmissible. spreading much more quickly. it was nearly nonexistent in the united states back in may. steve: all right. what have you got going on and we have been talking about this, the president's polling numbers regarding covid are actually inching down. the whole idea for the midterms is the democrats were going to run on hey, listen, look, we got covid completely under control. brian, you ache r59ly portrayed the fact that 99% of the people who are getting sick and winding up in the hospital are the unvaccinated. essentially, the white house realizes that covid is running around the country right now with the unvaccinated that still makes them look bad. they are trying to get people vaccinated. what are they doing? making everybody wear a mask even though the people who, for the most part, got the shot don't need it, simply to control the people who have not been vaccinated. rachel: there is so much misinformation coming out of cdc. brian: double talk. rachel: why does the cdc take all the way to this past march
3:10 am
to tell us, that it is mostly people who are obese or have other underlying causes that are in the hospital. they didn't -- they have not been transparent about the children who have died of covid all had other underlying cause us. brian: of the 165. rachel: not one healthy child who has died of covid. why aren't they being honest? it makes people just lose confidence in them. brian: 100 percent lose confidence. right now through the entire country, a country this large. there is 290 deaths due to covid. that's up 6%. caves are up 145% over the last two weeks. so you are taking gyms and bars and workplaces and masking up for the .001% that might be hospitalized while vaccinated and you have lost the incentive to do it and you wonder why we are stuck at 60% of people in country are vaccinated. it's unbelievable. steve: well, the good news is,
3:11 am
the information from the cdc yesterday was simply a recommendation. it will still be up to your local mayor or your state governor whether or not they institute mask mandates. brian: have you met our mayor and governor? have you met them? steve: that's why i don't live in new york. brian: do you work here. all right. meanwhile straight ahead, the dhs secretary down playing the record number of migrant else into the u.s. as texas officials raise concerns about the spread of covid-19. it. rachel: simone biles withdrawals from another competition to focus on mental health. how they are rallying around the gymnastic super star ♪ you all want to hang with me and my gang ♪ we live to ride ♪ we ride to live ♪ me and my gang ♪

3:18 am
second of the olympics. brian: i can't find it i hunted around. i can't really see it. steve: it was our own bill melugin tweeted this out yesterday apparently down in la joya, texas, a citizen waived down a police officer and said there is a family of migrants inside the what the that burger here they are coughing and sneezing and not wearing masks. i don't think they should be in the what a burger. the officer went in and talked to the people they said you know what? we were released by border patrol last week or a couple of days ago. we have got covid. and so they put us up, they being catholic charities at a hotel called the texas inn hotel. and then the police officer went and talked to the texas inn hotel and they said yes, catholic charities has booked the whole place and it's filled with migrants. and a lot of them are sick. and that's a problem because we just let them right. in forget about all the mask mandates and everything else. down on our southern border it's
3:19 am
come on in, the door is open. rachel: do you remember when they were thinking about quarantining americans and even in my town there was a proposal to see should we guard to make sure people aren't leaving their homes? i mean. steve: what? rachel: there was a proposal. it ended up not getting passed a proposal to talk about when you have covid how do we make sure you stay quarantined? here we have people coming across the border. we saw 900% covid surge in the rio grande valley. we see border patrol right now increases in their viruses with them, with the covid virus. because they are coming in contact with so many people. remember, these are people coming from unvaccinated countries from poor countries, almost 90 different countries, the border is wide open. and i have to tell you, i believe that this is the greatest threat to america right now. because it is a threat to our economy. we cannot afford to lock down again. brian: we have to link both
3:20 am
these talking points, the first block and the second block. you are telling 99%, even though there is 99% chance you are not going to get covid if you are vaccinated. 9% of people in the hospital are unvaccinated people with this variant, which is not more serious, just spreads easier and, yet, you say just on precaution i want everyone to wear a mask everywhere they go that's our guidance at the same time it's a wide open border. we have almost a million people coming to our country illegally, 300,000 got-aways, almost nobody is being tested. and now you have 50,000 illegals released into the u.s. without even a court appearance date. just a list of court locations. we asked them to show up when they can to check on their status. so don't tell us you are worried about our welfare at the same time leave the southern border open. mark levin weighed in on the surge at the border and the surge in this virus. >> people are pouring into this
3:21 am
country so fast we don't know how many. code cases among migrants in the rio grande valley sector surged 900 percent at the border. numbers continue to rise. we don't know how many illegal aliens have it. we know they are not tested. we know they are poor. they are coming from poor countries. that they don't have access to vaccines. maybe that's the problem. we are being overwhelmed. you look at the red map, the cdc director puts out there. what do you see? the southeastern united states is getting hit hardest, southern california is getting hitting hit hardest. how come they are not getting hit in north dakota the. brian: gradually get hit there. rachel: because we are paying to send the illegals who come across the border out into the interior of the country. steve: anywhere they want to go, absolutely. brian, you mentioned the fact that axios has that number, 50,000 migrants have been released into the united states without court dates because the thinking is that they will go to a local ice office and then they
3:22 am
will apply for a job permit. of the 50,000 released. do you know how many have actually shown up at ice? rachel: probably 5%? steve: 13%. so one in ten about. that is why josh hawley the senator, freshman senator from the great state of missouri was -- he had it had up to here with the secretary of homeland security. he talked about the border it's a crisis. josh hawley sees it that way. the secretary does not. >> this record is an unmitigated disaster. it's a disaster. i don't want to ask you to tell us and tell the american people now what you are going to do to change course. >> first of all, the number of migrants apprehended at the border began to increase in april of last year. number two, it's very important to remember that the number of apprehensions, the number of encounters does not equal the
3:23 am
number of different individuals encountered. they often return and are expelled again. >> your position is we don't have a crisis at the southern border. that the surge is largery alouisery and we have no reason to be concerned? >> that is a complete mischaracterization of what i said. >> are your policies working at the border. >> the plan takes time execute and we are doing so. let me say this. what makes the plan more challenging is, number one, covid, but we are working through that. >> this crisis has occurred under your tenure. covid is not unique to your tenure. this is a crisis that you have engineered with your policies. >> and we all know that. he knows we know that. this is a game. and everybody on the left that's ignoring it that's all they are doing. but this is absolutely out of control. and the guy that knows that from the democratic party and doesn't mind ratling their cage because he represents the people in his border area. the rio grande valley area more than he does his party.
3:24 am
congressman henry cuellar on the reality at the border with the pandemic in place. and keep in mind, we are like a week from dropping title 42. would have given us no reason to turn around people at the border citing medical reasons. now, thankfully, most of title 42 remains in place. but, still, it hasn't stopped. we are over a million people this year who have come to our border. 188,000. it will be 188,000 last month. and this month when they told us it was going to stop because of the heat it's going to be higher. rachel: i heard predictions by the end of the year it will be 2 million that are going to be here. and, again, the biden administration way more focused on restricting americans than restricting the border. brian: they have no interested. rachel: unbelievable. steve: i like that soundbite part of the problem numbers so high people keep coming over repeaters they just keep coming like it's 12 guys and only 12 guys. you know, it shunting be that big a number much meanwhile the cover of the "new york post" simone biles over here and eric

adams left hook. he will be the next mayor of new york city, the democrat, former police officer, he was record at a fundraiser at the home of a republican supporter, i believe, in queens a couple of days ago where he made it very clear his opponent, not necessarily the people who he are actually in the race, but actually the dsa, the democratic socialists of america. which acknowledges that aoc is their foremost socialist super star. because they have an ideology. and it flies in the face of what he is trying to push with law and order. and we have got a little snippet, "new york post" got ahold of this audio and video. and it's very telling on how mre socialists. watch. >> i'm no longer running against candidate. i'm running against a movement. all across the country the dsa
3:26 am
socialists are mobilizing to stop eric adams. they realize that if i'm successful, we're going to start the process of regaining control of our city. steve: that's the last thing the dsa, the democratic socialists of america wants. rachel: yeah, it's really interesting. it's hard to overestimate how consequential aoc's win over joe crowley was. when she won, it did two things. the socialists within the democrat party took their mask off and felt free to be socialists just like her. steve: normalized them. rachel: others got afraid and started moving to the left. eric adams claims that he is going to be the person to take on that image that aoc, because she has not just affected policies, she has affected the whole image of the party as really left wing and so we'll see. because, as you know, brian, president biden said when he was
3:27 am
running i do look like a socialist? and he said he was going to -- a lot of people in the democrat party, when they're running and need some, you know, support from the middle will say that. we'll see if this guy is for real or not. brian: right now, that is the formula for democratic success in the midterms that should scare republicans if eric adams lives up to his word. everything he is saying goes right up to the independents and undecideds i need somebody reasonable not ideological to run this country and city and town. eric adams, even though he does not win over the police force yet because he has been such a critic in the past. he has won over bill bratton who is now advising him who he was a critic of when he was active in uniform. if he continues with this message. it should scare republicans it should make the american people happy. that's the way you govern. you don't go fly to the left. you bring order to the street. steve: see, that's why ultimately, the people who are talking about law and order are going to do better in the midterms because right outside

3:35 am
dr. janette nesheiwat hello, doctor, how are you? >> great. good morning, rachel. rachel: we have been talking about this all morning. what do they mean by this and why are they sending mixed messages about the vaccine and who should be wearing masks? yesterday they found in a study they conducted that in your nose if you have been vaccinated and you pick up coronavirus in your nose you carry up to 1,000 times the viral load and can you potentially transmit it to others. it's estimated that the rate of break through infections is less than 1%. remember, rachel, how many people are hospitalized right now that have passed away that are in the hospital right now that are on a ventilator. >> most of those are unvaccinated. it is confusing and frustrated that they're putting out this new cdc divide dance based on less than 1% of us who are
3:36 am
vaccinated that can actually have this rare incident where you could pick up covid and spread it to others. but, they are doing it because there are some that can't get vaccinated. it's important to note this isn't for everyone. this is only if you are indoors and in an area with high transmission which is around 50% of america right now. rachel: what about chirp? we know that they are not really at risk. so why are they recommending this to schools? i know schools, individual schools and districts will make the decision. so many people and so many schools are so afraid of getting sued, i'm sure. they are just going to have to follow the cdc guidelines and i think it's not healthy for our kids. >> i don't like the fact that we're putting the burden on our children. we don't have data and evidence that tells us there is overall net benefit to putting a mask on a young child. and i also don't like the fact, rachel, that we're putting out this guidance two months in
3:37 am
advance. instead, let's reassess and re-evaluated where we are with this current variant at the end of august, in september. versus putting out a blanket guidance for everyone so i think that needs to be looked at again and hopefully the cdc will look at it in the next couple of months. rachel: there is cnbc headline americans are mixing and matching covid vaccines over concerns of the delta variant. tell me about that. >> yeah. so, actually, in other countries like italy, germany, right now in south korea, will for example you have strench vaccine there is data that shows in your second dose is with mrna like pfizer or moderna you get a stronger immune response. you get more protection. sometimes it's done intentionally. sometimes it's because the second dose isn't available or delay in shipment. buff we do have data that tells us getting a second dose with
3:38 am
nrna vaccine can actually give you a lot more protection. my little sister for example got the j and j vaccine. i said get ready to go out and get a pfizer booster. myself i got moderna and i want to get a booster shot eventually with whatever is available for extra protection. rachel: tell me when you think the fda is going to give final approval of these vaccines because there is a lot of questions about that. >> yes, yes. that's really important. that's probably going to result in a lot more people getting vaccinated. we are hoping by the end of august we will see that full fda approval. rachel: can i ask one really quick question? why isn't the cdc mentioning people that have already had covid when they talk about people who are unvaccinated? >> that's a great point. if you have already had covid, you don't need to get vaccinated right away. the cdc says wait 90 days if have you had antibodies. you don't need the vaccine right away. you have that natural immunity. down the road you may need it.
3:39 am
we don't know how long that natural protection will last. rachel: those kind of omissions causing people to lose total confidence in the cdc. thank you so much jeannette. wonderful having you on the show. >> thank you so much. rachel: army general's politically charged social media post raising concerns about wokeness in the military. veteran and it candidate sean parnell joins to us react next. and a "new york times" article claims biden is working to earn back latino support. but will the left's immigration's policies backfire on their campaign? that discussion still ahead. ♪ ♪

on the battle field he is out there on twitter trolling people. he is not focused on the mission. and what our leaders are not focused on the mission, our soldiers won't be focused on the mission. when soldiers aren't focused on the mission people die. so, at the end of the day, i think, brian, this is a real bad thing for our country and all it does is drive a wedge between the american military and the people of our great country, you know. it's concerns. brian: we don't have two hot wars anymore. you can focus on maybe structure and it does concern people about the secretary of defense and the chairman the joint chiefs of staff seem to be focused on white supremacy or shaking up, they say, the problem within their military. when maybe there is none there i know you are running for senate. you almost got your seat in congress. now, the big story today or this week is the infrastructure bill that's bipartisan in its construction if it questions and gets finished off and they get
3:47 am
over last hurdle. it's 90% done. monster one where they have no republican support. just going to jam it through reconciliation. do you think the republicans should sign off on the bipartisan one and knowing that they have no say in the partisan one? >> well, i think it's important to acknowledge that there is no bipartisan infrastructure bill. why? because nancy pelosi already said that that bill was dead on arrival in the house unless she gets her $3.5 trillion spend billing. brian, we have also infused and spent trillion dollars of dollars into the economy. republicans and democrats are proposing trillions more. who is paying for that, number one? number two, what have we gotten for the trillions of dollars of spending in our economy? three months of lackluster job growth and inflation the likes of which had country hasn't seen since 2008. who does inflation affect the most? it affects the middle class. it's a tax on everybody. it especially effects seniors and those on fixed income. so the republicans should
3:48 am
toughen up in washington. they should walk from this deal and don't allow themselves to be manipulated by the likes of chuck schumer and nancy pelosi and joe biden. brian: all right parnell for senate. you want to get in there and i'm sure you would be on the armed supervisors committee if you do and you would be able to straighten things out, i hope. sean parnell, thanks so much. >> thanks, brian. brian: let's check in with senior meteorologist janice dean fora fox weather center. janice? janice: you got it, brian. a beautiful day right here in new york city. we have showers and thunderstorms move through overnight. take a look at the temperatures across the map. we are in to the 70 in new york, down towards the east coast into florida. and i know those maps are coming up. 70 right now. 70 in chicago. 70 in denver. 71 in provo. we do have heat coming though across the central u.s. with temperatures in the 90's to 100-degree range. that's going to be dangerous. can you see the forecast heat indention is going to break a little bit tomorrow. especially across the ohio valley and the northeast. and there is your forecast radar where we could see the potential for some severe weather today across the midwest.

steve: if you have been to the frozery store lately i go every day. you may have noticed prices are on the rise. while you are paying more known on for the item also bringing home a lot less. economists are warning shrinkflation hit the shelves companies cut costs the host of varney and company stuart varney. first time in the studio. >> a year and a half. steve: good to have you and i'm sitting close to you. i was buying ice cream the other day i thought it was a half gallon. i thought it was half gallon. it was 48.
3:54 am
gone down. next time you are at the store check that out in many cases. >> shah is shrinkflation. it's inflation that you don't see. you don't notice it. it kind of covers it up. for example, a large box of cheerios. it now contains one serving less. you don't notice that unless you are really a student of prices. steve: usually got 14 polls now 13. >> some candy bars you go to 1.6 to 1.5 ounces. a larger roll of paper, paper towels. you might find fewer sheets of towels in there. steve: it take a look at charmin ultra strong toilet paper once upon a time 286 sheet per roll and now i don't see where the number is but now it's 264. you see, you are not supposed to in the it. and most people do not notice it. but your money is going less far if i can put it like that. it's inflation that's covered
3:55 am
up. it's there but it's covered up because you don't notice it i mean, how many people go to the supermarket look at a candy bar, for example and check out how many ounces of candy do you get compared to how many ounces you got six months ago? nobody does that so you don't notice it. but your money goes less far. steve: i thought i was buying a half -- a pound of coffee it was 12 ounces not 16 ounces, 12 ounces. i still bought it. >> don't think for one moment although it's covering up inflation, inflation goes away. it does not. president biden thinks that, okay, inflation is going to fade away a little bit. fade, even though we are spending a great deal of money from the government. i'm here to say i don't think so. i don't see inflation going away any time soon. you can't chuck trillions of dollars into an economy that's already expanding rapidly and expect to get away with zero inflation. it's not going to happen. steve: one of the other problems and we have only got about 30 seconds the supply chain has
3:56 am
made things tight to get. they are now suggesting the supply chain problems could run through 2023. >> yes that a distinct possibility because you have such an enormous amount of demand with a shortage of workers in key industries, distribution industries, for example. that that supply chain is going to be crimped. i think it was the national association of business economists who figured out that one third think that we have got a display change shortage now. and it's not going away any time soon. big deal. steve: sign of the times. >> it is. steve: read the labels ultimately what you are talking about today. check out stuart he is going to be on varney and company today until noon kicks off at 9:00. all right, coming up, find out what tim allen is saying about cancel culture and political correctness. mr. tool time. ly administered over 25 million free covid-19 vaccines, we can't stop there.

4:03 am
the cdc is now changing it's guideline over the delta variant concerns. brian: most lit sized of the government it turns out. fully vaccinated americans should now cover their nose and mouth in certain parts of the u.s. at certain times. steve: we are hoping griff jenkins does not cover his mouth although yesterday at the white house, if you were indoors, i saw -- i was talking to our correspondent, if you are indoors, at the white house, you have got most the mask again. griff: that's right. you cannot walk into the white house without putting one of these on. masks are indeed back. cdc director rochelle wolenski says not a decision take lightly but the science is changing. listen. >> information on the delta variant from several states indicate that in rare occasions, some vaccinated people infected with the delta variant after vaccination may be contagious. this new science is worrisome. and, unfortunately, warrants an
4:04 am
update to our recommendation. griff: it's a major reversal now fully having sin nateed people should mask up indoors in areas of substantial or high transmission rate and calling for universal masking for all teachers, staff, students and visitors to k through 12 classrooms across the country regardless of vaccination status. this, as the administration yesterday issued it first federal vaccine mandate at the department of veterans affairs requiring all v.a. health facility employees to get vaxxed or face routine testing. and president biden isn't ruling out shots for everybody in the federal government. watcher. >> will you require all federal employees to get vaccinated? >> it's under consideration right now. if you are not vaccinated you are not nearly as smart ace thought you were. >> griff: are vaccine mandates issued under the emergency use authorization legal in the doj's office of legal counsel they are saying that the government can overlook the vaccines not having fda approval writing we conclude
4:05 am
that section 5646 the fdca food drug cosmetics act does not prohibit public or private entities requiring vaccine requirements even when the only vaccines available are those thozzed under the emergency use authorization. meanwhile, guys, several other state and local authorities also following suit from california to north carolina to mayor de blasio in new york city issuing some a form of vaccination mandate. steve, rachel, brian? brian: for city workers. not through the city. steve: griff, regarding that quotation at the end from the department of justice, that means that if your employer wants to say okay, everybody is going to have to get a shot, if they want to get a paycheck, they can do that, right? griff: this is a significant change. so in 2012, the federal food drug cosmetic act basically said that pandemic specifically the language says i have got it here or in another emergency situation you could overlook the
4:06 am
fda full approval for emergency use authorization and that applies to both government and private businesses' we will see how that plays out. let's also not forget in some places you also have the unions which i'm sure will want to have a bit of a say perhaps sit at the bargaining table before they mandate something like a vaccination. brian: unions in manhattan are not happy about this at all. steve: about the mask. brian: about the mask thing they also are not happy about possibly having to get a shot or go through the testing. rachel: yeah. they don't want the mandate. steve: his final point is such a good one. the administration missed by a mile their vaccination -- they wanted 70% of the country vaccinated by the fourth of july. they missed that and part of it, you know, and joe biden was saying, listen, if you want to take off your mask, get the shot. well, now they are saying even if you got the shot, you have got to wear the mask indoors in areas where things are spiking.
4:07 am
there are so many people though who are saying to griff's point, you know, the fda has not given this final approval. if the government says it's not safe, yet on an emergency basis but i'm going to wait for final approval. why is it taking so long? "wall street journal" says it's bureaucracy. but if joe biden, the president, the leader during this pandemic wants to get things done and get more people vaccinated, have him say to the fda what the hell is taking so long? they have had close to half a million people have gotten shots of the covid medicine but they haven't -- the fda needs to go from emergency to final approval. brian: you remember when president trump did that he got ridiculed. don't get involved with the medical side. that's not your position. when he said what's taking so long, why are you not approving this? why is it so vague in your disments he got accused of putting his handle on the scale. you are not a doctor president
4:08 am
trump he says president biden sits back and snipes at people and ridiculed people if they don't take the vaccine. not motivate anyone put you down not smart enough for him. rachel: some people have already had covid they are so are not getting vaccinated push to get kids vaccinated some people saying i'm not going to do that if you did got to wear a mask anyway. i had dr. janette nesheiwat on just a little earlier she said there is no evidence that kids need to wear mask. >> i don't like the fact that we are putting the burden on our children. we don't have data and evidence that tells us there is overall net benefit to putting a mask on a young child. and i also don't like the fact we are putting this guidance out two months in advance. let's assess where we are with this current variant at the end
4:09 am
of august in september versus putting out blanket guidance for everyone. rachel: i think there is going to be revolt with parents. steve: depends on where you live it suggestion yesterday was from the cdc. not a requirement. will school board and state governor to determine it going back to the whole thing about the fda. brian, do you think that the white house, which said we're in constant contact with the cdc, do you think politics played any role in getting the cdc to say, yep, everybody needs to wear a mask? i think 100 percent politics is involved here. joe biden is the head of the federal government. he is the head of the fda. he should just knock on the door. why is it taking so long? let's get final approval. give me a good reason why you have not given final approval yet. he has not gotten that and we
4:10 am
don't know. rachel: all of this is happening because there is supposedly a surge. there is a surge in this delta variant and we know the surge is happening in the southern parts of the state of the country. and we know much of that is probably because of the surge coming over our border. i mean, i don't understand why an administration and cdc who is going to restrict -- further restrict americans because of delta variant is doing nothing about the surge that is coming across our border in unvaccinated people. >> that's true. it's like spitting into the wind. they don't want to acknowledge the problem at the southern border. you saw josh hawley how frustrated he is with the homeland security secretary yesterday. vice president harris, great job. she is really all over this. does she get any rest? frank. she really is dominating that border problem she discount know where it is. steve: we was wearing a mask you a. rachel: she kisses her husband with a mask. brian: everyone does their own
4:11 am
thing, i was going to add this. dr. scott gottlieb said yesterday we're about three weeks behind the british. the british have turned the corner on this variant already if everything is past is prologue. we are turning the corner on the variant. if you are vaccinated you are not going to get this seriously not going to be hospitalized and mild symptoms. brian: alter our lives and affect business because you know liberal mayors are going to jump on that guidance because they like having that control. they like telling people do this and i will fine you. governor cuomo military out basically finding businesses if they don't go by his guidelines. look for him to get behind the mike phone in the next couple of days. steve: we showed you a couple of days ago the city of poor the land oregon new ad campaign. yeah, we had some stuff in the news regarding stuff but it's safe to come back. and let's come back to portland, essentially it sounds as if they
4:12 am
would like to turn the corner in seattle, too. but after, you know, all those protests and the lawlessness. brian: resignation of the chief. steve: over the weekend six separate shootings in seattle which flies in the face of what the mayor said there a year ago. remember what her prediction was going to be for last summer. summer of 2020. if you forgot we have got a clip. >> you have fir blocks in seattle that you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere. >> how long do you think seattle and those few blocks looks like. this i don't know. we could have a summer of love. steve: well, you know what? brian: that went well. steve: they did not end up with a summer of love. brian: summer of shootings. steve: no kidding, that's this summer. here she is talking the day before yesterday about the shootings in that city. six separate, they have never seen anything like this before a. >> this past weekend serves as a reminder.
4:13 am
there are many times and types of 911 calls that require a traditional sworn police officer to respond. it is a false choice between community led solutions and police officers. we need both. steve: hmmm need more cops. rachel: they need more cops. that's what the mayor is saying. the department lost 250 police officers. they said that's the equivalent of over 300,000 hours of service. they expect to olose 300 coming. and, again, this isn't just that you are losing cops. i mean, the whole place is unsafe because these decisions have consequences. the cops are not wanting to either -- some of them are retiring early. others are telling their sons and daughters don't join the profession. others are being lured by governors like desantis and kristi noem who are saying come to our state. we're going to respect you. we are going to honor your profession. we're going to give you a bonus,
4:14 am
$1,000 as they did in florida. joe, the fraternal order of police and here's what he had to say. >> all of a sudden politicians in seattle and minneapolis and washington, d.c., suddenly want to fund the police and they want to hire more police officers. i mean, where is this energy been over the last 20 months as we have seen historic surge in homicides? we had over 20,000 people murdered in the united states in 2020 which is numbers we haven't seen since the mid '90s when it's politically expeed yont want to hire police officers, suddenly they want to jump on the bandwagon. ask yourself, how many people, how many fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, were sacrificed on the altar of the woke anti-police movement? i mean, it's truly disgusting. brian: there is two things going on. they are saying devalue cops, defund cops. and then take their powers away. let them know they are the problem. if anyone wants to put on that uniform. they got to go back under the precursor of saying they will be
4:15 am
allowed to do their job the way they have been taught to do their job. not sit back and vilified and not backed up by the mayor which it's unbelievable that she thinks that we don't remember what she was saying about police officers a year ago. meanwhile. steve: a block party. could be like a block party. rachel: summer of love. brian: people imemulated that in portland. president trying to get control with federal troops. we see how that went. now they are left to their own devices. meanwhile 15 minutes after the hour. one of the most intriguing things is happening across the country now as the pandemic recedes. stages are opening up and fans are coming back to a lot of these comedy clubs big and small venues. you have got to wonder in this age of cancel culture what are comedians making a living and pushing the envelope and get people to think differently about things we live with on a daily basis occasional humor like tim allen does is their act going to change are they going to get canceled in an effort to be funny. steve: tim allen is worried. itch are a rach not worried
4:16 am
about the full theaters and covid coming. is he worried about maybe somebody in the back of the room tweeting about him and him getting canceled. here's what he said doing a river trip here in pennsylvania heading to michigan next for two sold out stand up performances at the opera house very nervous as i have been off stage for ear year. won kerr if government agents will be policing comedy from the back of the house? he is not the only comedian. we have seen comedians over the last several years saying, you know, p.c., political correctness, woke culture. brian: doesn't mix with comedy. you have to go. steve: push the envelope. brian: feel free to talk about people and make fun of people and a lot of times, if you remember don riblegs and others. they might bring up your gender your ethnic background, your height, your weight. is that going to fly if a clip the next morning ends up on a show and they say how could tim allen do that let's ban them. steve: all i remember about don rick kels he called everybody a

this is the sound of an asthma attack... that doesn't happen. compare hundreds of travel sites for thousands of trips. this is the sound of better breathing. fasenra is a different kind of asthma medication. it's not a steroid or inhaler. fasenra is an add-on treatment for asthma driven by eosinophils. it's one maintenance dose every 8 weeks. it helps prevent asthma attacks, improve breathing, and lower use of oral steroids. nearly 7 out of 10 adults with asthma may have elevated eosinophils. fasenra is designed to target and remove them. fasenra is not a rescue medication or for other eosinophilic conditions. fasenra may cause allergic reactions. get help right away if you have swelling of your face, mouth, and tongue, or trouble breathing. don't stop your asthma treatments unless your doctor tells you to. tell your doctor if you have a parasitic infection
4:33 am
or your asthma worsens. headache and sore throat may occur. this is the sound of fasenra. ask your doctor about fasenra. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. jillian: good morning, we are back now with your headlines, illinois congressman a adam kinzinger gets emotional during the january 6th commission hearing. watch. >> we still don't know exactly what happened. why? because many in my party have treated this as just another partisan fight. it's toxic. jillian: constituency gear is outspoken critic of president trump one two of republicans serving on the select committee

americans put the mask back on, too. especially in areas with high transmission. and even advising universal masking everybody in the school needs to wear a mask even if they have had the shot. here with reaction we have got fox news medical contributor dr. marc siegel. author of the upcoming book hollowed out jeremy adams and new jersey mom of three nela hadley. good morning to all of you. >> good morning. steve: neil start with you you are on the frontlines three kids going back to school in a month, month and a half. which when they heard they have to wear a mask from sun up to sundown in the school building, what did they say? >> my son's first reaction is he's not going back to school. my daughters are not happy at all. it's something we are going to have to discuss. my kids are -- i don't want to
4:36 am
say a mess but they are pretty upset about it. steve: what do you mean your son is not going to go back to school. >> so last year he had a second dear infection skin infection on his face he is left with a couple of scars still. he doesn't want to go through that again. steve: i don't blame him. >> it's very painful experience. steve: absolutely. jeremy, you are out in california. bakersfield, california. they're saying that, you know, you are going to have to do it in california. you know governor newsom is going to say that but the whole reason you got the shot was so you wouldn't have to wear the mask around the kid now you will have to wear a mask around the kids. >> finance absolutely frustrating i will be honest with you. the truth of the matter i'm not a doctor or scientists i can't
4:37 am
tell you if we need to be doing this from a scientific perspective. teaching in a mask is awful. ridiculously hard especially if you are trying to use the humanity of the classroom. humor, facial expression and reach the kid. these kids need to get back to a normal situation. the last six months have not been good for them. they weren't doing particularly great before which is why i wrote the book hollowed out. all the teachers i talked to yesterday got the vaccine because we node know these kids needed to get back to normal it's demoralizing. steve: absolutely. dr. siegel, you know, parents are struggling to try to explain to their kids okay, this is what we are going to have to do. look at mila's story she has this sons who son wound one a face infection a lot of people don't think about because you are wearing it all day it takes its toll on face and psyche. >> that's right, steve. big down sides to masks that have to be factored in and there is the idea of what kind of mask are you wearing. if you are wearing an n-95 with
4:38 am
a formal seal, that works really well. kids are not going to tolerate that the idea is it should never be a mandate it might be something you recommend if there is a lot of virus. but there isn't a lot of spread in schools. there isn't a lot of spread among young children. star reporter peter doocy, when he talked to jen psaki yesterday, you got this feeling of a condescending tone, didn't you? we know and you don't. we know and we're going to tell what you to do. so the mistakes the administration is doing mixing masking with vaccines. as the high school teacher just said. you know, vaccines work. masks shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence. steve: dr. siegel, so many people are hesitant to take the vaccine but joe biden said you get the vaccine, you can take down the mask. now, of course, that turns out it's not going to be the suggestion going forward. everybody is going to have to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.
4:39 am
but, also, you know, the fda has not given final approval and there are probably millions of americans that said well, if the fda, the federal government is not saying it's 100 percent safe, with final approval, i'm not going to get it. so, why is the government taking so long? this is an all hands on deck situation. >> this is unprecedented. and even though it usually takes a long time, in this case my opinion and i think yours is they should get off their did you have and do it right now. and get it approved to send that vote of confidence because over 300 million doses have already been given out. it's not like they don't have the data, steve. they got the data. they have got move fast and got to license the vaccine. then you will see a lot more people taking it that are on the fence. >> i remember when our kids were living in the house and they were getting ready for school right about now they would start getting excited about school. you know, let's go get some new clothes and go staples and all the spiral notebooks and stuff
4:40 am
like this. but given the fact that now it sounds like we're going to have to have the kids wearing the masks again that just made your job tougher getting the kids out the door. >> absolutely. it has. i'm hoping he is going to be mask exempt because of the severity of his skin and how bad his face was. like i said, there is still some scarring. steve: my goodness. >> i'm hoping that the doctors recognize this and they agree me. hopefully he will be able to go back to school like a normal kid. as far as my girls go. my older one is going in eighth grade. she said, mom, i don't want to be home schooled for eighth grade. i don't blame her. and then my sixth grader. this is -- the social aspect of school is just as important as the education. steve: absolutely. jeremy, you are out in california. how much of an impact do you
4:41 am
think the teachers unions had in convincing the government to say everybody has got to wear a mask? >> well, you know, i can't speak to the pta i can tell you most of the it teachers i know got vaccinated for a variety of reasons. we have got get back to a sense of normalcy. steve, i'm a bit of a classroom romantic. i think that the most certain door to the american dream no matter what your background is a high quality education, which means we need our teachers to be at their absolute best. the last year of learning for our students has not been pretty. they have been behind anonymous zoom calls, sitting in bed, you know, oftentimes texting as they take classes. and we need to get back to some normalcy for sure. steve: for sure. dr. siegel exit question. this is only a recommendation. it's going to be up to state and local leaders whether or not your locality actually says mask up, everybody. right? >> right. and theoretically, it's only
4:42 am
supposed to be in areas of a lot of spread. but kids spread more covid outside school than in school. and i already told you they don't spread it much in school. the danger is that it is going to be extended to areas where there is not even any virus around. steve: you are right. there is a lot going on. >> teachers have to get vaccinated. steve: absolutely. everybody who can get vaccinated should. dr. siegel, neala. thank you for joining us this morning. steve: powerful alliance between big tech and the democratic party. florida senator marco rubio is warning why we must stop that collusion coming up. plus, as latinos are gravitating toward the republican party. the "new york times" reports joe biden wants their support back. how is he going to earn it? discussion coming up. ♪

4:48 am
one thing, policies are others. so i want to talk to both of you about policies and start with you, daniel, will these policies get the best of your -- you live in texas. let's talk about crime and the border and jobs. >> well, rachel, you are absolutely right. one thing is to do outreach and engagement. i longest time for decades it was the democratic party that did a lot of the outreach to the latino community. they got lazy and started taking us for granted. what i mean by that is all we were was a get out the vote target. and they never paid any attention to the results of policy or listened to us on what our policy priorities were. and so what we're seeing right now with the biden administration, this going to be really difficult to do outreach because there's a hardening sense in the latino community that the biden administration has lost control on spending, on inflation, on crime, on the border, and with cuba, it just seemingly seems that they have no plan no, strategy, no will to do anything about it.
4:49 am
rachel: you know, lily, i was going to mention to you, you are from columbia. you know a lot about how people feel not only in columbia but next door in venezuela, in cuba, the biden administration just seems to not want to offer internet service to the protesters there. they seem to be waiting for the protests to just die out, for them to be sketched by the communist regime, for it just to be over and move onto the next thing. will they pay a political price and talk to me a little bit about socialism and hispanics. >> yeah, well, that's definitely a missed opportunity because here we have something that everyone is talking about both sides of the aisle, latinos of all background are unifying to support the people of cuba. but we are not seeing that bold stance from the white house. so, as daniel was saying, one thing is to do spanish language advertising but it's about the constant outreach that is relevant. for us, jobs, the economy, education, and, yes, being

4:57 am
sex differences and that's something that i've been enthusiastic about, it's the science of sex and sex differences and part of the science is teaching the facts and the facts are that there are, in fact, two sexes, male and female and those sexes are designated by the kind what we produce. that's how we know whether somebody is male or female and the ideology seems to be that biology really isn't as important as how somebody feels about themselves or feels their sex to be but we can treat people with respect and with respect their gender identities and, you know, use their preferred pronouns, so understanding the facts about biology doesn't event us from treating people with respect. brian: we can't back out as saying, male, female or pregnant woman, please. a quote from student complaining

5:02 am
what, going to certain situations wear them. steve: we are not crazy about it especially those who are vaccinated but the cdc says fully vaccinated americans should cover their nose and mouth and wear a mask in certain parts of the united states where the coronavirus particularly the delta variant is surging. rachel: seems to be surging in the south near our border. griff jenkins joins us live from the white house with the insulting message to unvaccinated americans, hello, griff, what did the president say? griff: good morning, there's a new sign here at the doors to the white house, check it out. it says masks required even if you're fully vaccinated. cdc director rochelle said that the decision weighed heavily upon her but the delta variant changed everything. >> new science is worrisome and unfortunately warrants update to
5:03 am
our recommendation. griff: after the announcement vice president harris was seen sporting a mask in ceremonial office and vaccinated people having to mask up indoors and they are calling for universe al mask mandates for teachers regardless of vaccination status. now, this after the administration issued first federal vaccine mandate at the department of veterans affairs requiring va health facility employees to get vaxxed or face routine testing and the president not ruling out shots for everybody. >> will you require all federal employees to get vaccinated? >> it's under consideration right now. griff: at state and local level, california, north carolina, new york city also following suit with some form of a mandate for workers but are the vaccine mandates issued under emergency use authority legal, well, the
5:04 am
doj's office of legal council opined opined that the section 554 does not prohibit private indices for requirement even when only vaccines available are those authorized under emergency use authorization. now as for when we might find if the president will call for the vaccining for the federal government, we are not sure but the sources tell us that the white house will give us more information later this week. rachel, brian and steve. steve: griff, thank you very much. we understand the mayo clinic will call for everybody has to be vaccinated. also houston methodist and sounds like in new york they will require, you know, city employees get it, probably out in california as well. so given what you said at the end, if your boss says, everybody has to get the shot or you're not going to work here,
5:05 am
the doj says that's okay, right? griff: that's right. just to try to quickly explain it. if the secretary of health and human services declares an emergency like we have with this pandemic in the country, the doj's ruling or opinion now says that the fda, you can overlook the fda's full approval for drugs like this vaccine and that's what particularly in the healthcare environment folks are taking a hard look at pushing it until according to cdc director more americans are vaccinated with only about half of the country that have done so so far. steve: all right, griff. thank you so much. part of the reason why people want today get the vaccine so they wouldn't have to wear the mask and now they have to wear the mask. rachel: so many parents were told that the at end of last school year, don't worry in the fall, your kids won't have to wear masks and here we are looking at another year of potentially kids having to wear masks because if the cdc
5:06 am
recommends it, a ton of schools because they are afraid of getting sued, because there's a bunch of busy-body parents or teachers that will complain, they will just require it. brian: requirement. -- right. doctors and nurses, we are supposed to tell them to get the shots? no a politician is supposed to tell them to get the shot. steve: their boss, if you want to work at mayo clinic or methodist. brian: the nurse told them i'm not getting the shot, i don't think i need it, now they say 99% of the people are hospitalized are the unvaccinated. so now vaccinated people because of this variant because it's easy to spread but not as lethal, vaccinated people have to get a shot because unvaccinated people chose not to get a shot, that makes absolutely no sense. did joe biden tell us, get the
5:07 am
shot and forget the mask, did joe biden tell us in december they will not mandate to get the shot, by the way donald trump's warp speed came up with, but what i don't get is the language. the director says we not something that we did lightly, all right. we were asking for schools to mask up, that's direct, but it said in certain situations we consider wearing a mask. what are the certain situations? are we going back to approximatelytions looking at cdc guidelines. we tried that road, we don't like that road, we don't want to go ahead our medical advice from politicians and the cdc lost credibility because we found out because you have taken talking points from the teacher's union. how do we know that, freedom of information request, cut and pasting and making your policy. rachel: senator johnson has been wanting more of the documents release about the coordination
5:08 am

5:09 am
they convinced the cdc and worked in coordination with the cdc and now what they are doing is masking all of us essentially punishing the people who got the vaccine because the people who didn't get the vaccine should not be spreading. brian: that's -- that statement is 100% correct but also the people that didn't get the vaccine have a reason. sometimes they feel as though they have the antibodies and they took the antibody test, i'm not susceptible to it. others had bad experiences with bad vaccine, but that's their risk. they sky-dive, they choose to smoke, whatever you decide to do, you're not checking with me and i don't think we should check with the president and him saying you're not as smart as i thought you were for getting the vaccine, that's more of insulting comments. remember comment, you ain't black if you're not voting for me? do i suck the blood of children and called the one guy that
5:10 am
asked questions about his health, are you a junky? what is with him and unthoughtful phrases. >> you talked about people being punished, no one has been more punished than the children in this country. they lost a year of childhood, they were masked unnecessarily, not able to show their smiles, getting acne infections from their masks, you spoke to some parents and some teachers in the last hour. let's take a look at what they had to say. >> you have the feeling of a condescending tone, didn't you know. we know and you don't. we know and we are going to tell you what to do so the mistake the administration is making is mixing masking with vaccines. masks shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence. >> teaching in a mask is awful. it's ridiculously hard especially if you're trying to use the humanity of the classroom, use humor or facial expression, reach the kid. the kids need to get back to a normal situation. >> my son's first reaction is he's not going back to school.

last year he had a secondary infection, he had a reaction to a mask which turned into a full-blown skin infection on his face. it was a very painful experience. steve: absolutely. and the middle fellow there, jason, he's out in california bakersfield, california. he and the teachers that he works with in bakersfield educated themselves and looked at the information, you know what, we will get the vaccine because it's a smart thing to do so so we can be protected and we can protect the kids, so they are disappointed now that the president and the cdc is recommending that you should wear a mask. we -- you know, we have talked extensively about whether or not you should get the mask -- get the vaccine, of course, get the mask if you want to go to the white house and places like that, but ultimately, brian, you're right, it's everybody's choice. we got the shot as soon as we could but we knew the risks involved and we decided to take the risk. my suggestion is get the shot
5:12 am
because -- >> rachel: my suggestion is optional mask for kid. if you want your kid to wear a mask, you can make your kid wear a mask. steve: it's up to your school board. rachel: it's having psychological effects. i'm to the point where i believe they are trying to create this -- normalize this, fear and submission. i've had enough of this and i i don't want to normalize anymore for my children. i'm done with it. i'm done with it. brian: we are taking marching orders. cdc empowers governors and mayors. i will watch out for my people by having them huber in a corner. think about this, you own a bar, you own a restaurant and you own a gym, you're a teacher, your life has been severely affected again. now you can't stand in a bar if you're one of the cities where they will look at cdc, no standing with a mask. you remember what that was like.

rachel: yes. steve: unfortunately, you know, the plan for the people coming north is to get in the united states. getting shot for covid was not in their plan so they are bringing covid here. we have a story this morning in la joya, texas a cop was waived over, the family of migrants over at the table, they are coughing and sneezing and can you talk to them because you shouldn't be in here. hey, what's the deal. well, we were just processed by border patrol, we got covid. so they are in a restaurant. they said, we came over here to get something to eat. we are staying across the street at the texas inn. rachel: catholic relief services which -- brian: catholic charities. steve: the cop went over and you have a bunch of migrants staying in here that have covid and
5:18 am
apparently the in-keeper said, you know what, we don't know exactly who is here because catholic charities has rented the whole place out and they are assigning groups to the migrants until they can figure out how to transport all across the country. so there are people in hotels in texas with covid as the federal government arranges to fly them all over the country. rachel: they are restricting americans and not restricting the border. i just want to say i believe this is the biggest threat to america right now because it is a threat to our economy. if this covid variant comes across the border as we know it's -- there's a reason why it's surging in this area, we have lockdowns, more restrictions, our kids are getting restricted, this -- do we have to pay more people to not work because of covid? this is going to hurt our economy, this is hurting americans. this is wrong. steve: i have an idea, joe biden needs to come out today and say, hey, anybody coming into the
5:19 am
country needs to wear a mask. [laughter] steve: wear a mask. brian: by the way if you're a catholic and giving money to catholic charities in america, weren't you hoping it was going to help americans and not other people that come to the country illegally, are you happy about that? rachel: i think it's our government giving to catholic charities? brian: why are they give to go apparatus -- >> rachel: donations are down for a lot of reasons maybe because -- brian: ethically challenged? rachel: yes. steve: helped the migrant community. this is nothing new. rachel: it's also a profit motive for the catholic church. brian: illegal migrant community? i did not know that. steve: brian, that's been going on for decades. here is the thing, when we hear that dhs is handing people over
5:20 am
to ngo's, nongovernment organizations, it's ngo's like catholic charities set up to help to migrant community, okay, here is a boat-load of money, can -- we don't want to worry about the problem and then they try -- rachel: catholic charities isn't the only one. lutheran services. all the nonprofits making money off of this entire situation. brian: our money. our taxpayer money. rachel: we are paying delta to fly them off to god knows where. brian: in bus that is we rent that may be china built. rachel: military. brien: congressman henry kueka who cares more about the people who he represents than his party. we have give hem credit for that. how does he feel it's going at the border? steve: marco rubio requesting a meeting with the president to talk, you'll hear from him coming up next. ♪

♪ dream on ♪ ♪ dream on ♪ ♪ dream on ♪ ♪ dream on ♪ - yes! ♪ ahhhhhhh ♪ ♪ dream until your dreams come true ♪ steve: number of republicans standing in solidarity with cubans, next guest seeking a meeting with the president for a better response to the white house. rachel: marco rubio, son of immigrants. i want to get right to it. the biden administration has not given internet access to the protestors, the freedom fighters on the island, at this point is there no intention of doing that and why hasn't it happened yet? >> this is not a priority for
5:26 am
the biden white house and there's two reasons for it. one is because there are people in the state department and others who are arguing, look, let's not have any instability in cuba right now. we don't need to regime to fall because we don't want another crisis to deal with. that's the best case. at worst, you have people that are flat-out sympathizers. members of congress for years have traveled with havana and met with officials and they have people in the white house, at the national security council and state department, in the state department who are some of the biggest proponents of engagement with the regime and biggest supporters and some helped craft the obama deal with the cuban regime and people in the democratic party, marxists, there are marxists in terms of people that knock on doors, the people that raise all the small dollar donors and so forth, so that creates a huge division internally. they want this thing to go away and we are not going to let it go away. brian: are you saying you don't expect to get a meeting because
5:27 am
they do see a positive, getting communism out of cuba would help us in venezuela, help us in nicaragua and bolivia. without cuba, the doctrine doesn't spread. don't they see the plus side of the people having a say in their government in cuba? senator: well, that's what we hope to talk to them about. i don't know if we are going to get the meeting. it's the president and he has a busy schedule. you figure out to have a meeting. if there's anything that should be bipartisan is foreign policy and something like this, taking on marxism, socialism and anti-american dictatorship 90 miles from our shores, that should be bipartisan, right now it's not. i hope that can change. steve: you've been busy. you wrote an op-ed on foxnews.com, the headline is we must stop silicon valley democrat collusion before conservatives are silenced for good. you talk about -- so many people talk about big tech and how they
5:28 am
influence everybody's everyday life but you say ultimately the quest of the administration to regulate big tech has to do with censoring its critics. senator: yeah, what they're railing against is big tech will not silence certain voices and certain opinions. that's what they are talking about. these are private businesses but never in the history of our country have we had small number of country, individuals no due process making decisions on who has access to public square. i'm filing a bill that requires big-tech companies to disclose any time a government anywhere in the world including here in america ask them or pressures them to take down content. they need to disclose that. rachel, senator, i like your idea. i know there's a lot of libertarians on the republican side, free-marketers, we can't tell private business what to do but they are monopolies and they are controlling the public
5:29 am
square? >> we should take antitrust investigations very seriously. it comes down to 5 or 6 companies, google, apple and facebook and twitter, all get together and decide we will shut somebody down, they can wipe you out. they can deny you access to the internet, they can deny you access to the the most prevalent social media sites in the world and you add to that one tiktok, controlled by bitedance, chinese company taking down anticuba regime videos. amazing clips because they are a communist government over there. they are monopolies, not just an economic monopoly, it's a cultural, social political monopoly. brian: anthony fauci working with zuckerberg, no question. he was against the lab leak theory, now it's so overwhelming, that was once banned. now basically conventional thought. eric swawell, don't wear a mask and that was bolstered.
5:30 am
so if you're a democrat, you get -- you get preferential treatment and if we don't stop it now, the theme is you will never have a say in social media again. senator: that's the key thing. and so going to go back and how are people going to get back the reputation and more importantly you can't go back in time so the power to silence information, the power to silence voices because you don't agree with their political narrative, look, here is what free speech means. people have the right to say things that are offensive and things that are wrong and right to say things that are crazy. you can't incite violence. the cuban regime was inciting violence and they didn't take the fake president of cuba. steve: you could google it but you can go to foxnews.com. it's easier to find. thank you very much. senator: thank you. rachel: sunk, senator. steve: texas copes with migrants
5:31 am
entering the country. we will talk with a texas democrat who wants to stop it. we are talking to henry cuellar. he will join us next. rachel: will the 20's be burring or roaring what's on the horizon? the answers lie beyond the roads we know. we recognize that energy demand is growing, and the world needs lower carbon solutions to keep up. at chevron, we're working to find new ways forward, like through our venture capital group. backing technologies like electric vehicle charging, carbon capture and even nuclear fusion.
5:32 am
we may not know just what lies ahead, but it's only human... to search for it.

get yours today. and if you're an active or retired federal employee you may qualify to get eargo at no cost to you. jillian: we are back with headlines, house minority leader kevin mccarthy reportedly pulled gop lawmakers off the house economic panel in protest of speaker pelosi's decision to block his picks for the january 6th panel. the two republicans congresswoman liz cheney and congressman adam kissinger hand-picked by pelosi and both bashed former president trump during committee first public hearing. kissinger got emotional during testimony, take a listen. >> we still don't know exactly what happened, why, because in
5:36 am
in my party have treated this as just another partisan fight. it's toxic. >> for now it doesn't appear that mccarthy is withdrawing other republicans from several other special committees. olympics. simone biles withdrawing from another event to focus on mental health. biles will not compete in all-around competition just one day after pulling out of team event. usa gymnastics says, it, wholeheartedly supports biles' decision. meanwhile former katie winning 1500-meter for her sixth gold medal and the men's u.s. basketball team dominating iran 120 to 66. not even close. they will play the check czech republic saturday. rachel: but in a new op-ed, not
5:37 am
of greater freedom but endless pings, masks, boosters and variants, restrictions meant to be limited, looks if they will be with as duration. douglas, so explain. >> good to be with you. the yale academic said earlier this year that it's possible that after the corona era we would have a booming decade and as much as the spanish flu a century ago was followed by the roaring 1920's so the corona era will be following by the 1920's. i think we are for the boring 2020's for endless regurgitations of the same arguments, for the endless restrictions, the endless judgmentallism of people who
5:38 am
don't get along with the latest restriction and have actually, that along-side some of the economics, the u.s. has the highest inflation it's had since 2008 suggest to me that this is going to be a very tricky decade. i wish it would roar but i think it's going to bore. rachel: normalized by young people who will be the next leader. we have a story that we did on medical schools and are now denying, you can't say male or female. it's the students policing the professors and the professors having to apologize, how important is it in this moment when -- when big government and woke inc is forcing us to parrot and repeat and believe all of the lives that there's no difference between male or female, for example, any of the lies we have heard throughout this pandemic. how important is it for us to
5:39 am
just tell the truth? >> oh, it's vital. it's nothing more important. rachel: i agree. >> the piece that you're referring to refers to a medical school in california. says i'm so sorry that earlier on i said pregnant women, i didn't mean to imply by that that only women can become pregnant. i meant a woman who has become pregnant. if you have been to medical school, you end up stupider afterwards than when you went in. men can become pregnant. this is an example of craziness. you know, china is eating america's lunch economically and america -- top medical schools are telling people that men can become pregnant and much more. so the crucial thing that will give the edge in america is telling the truth as we see it and not sticking to lies. rachel: yeah, it's that simple. thank you douglas murray, you're always refreshing to hear from.
5:40 am
>> thank you. rachel: up next, it's reported that 50,000 migrants that crossed the southern border illegally have been released in the u.s. without court dates, henry cuellar joins us next to react after the break.
5:41 am
5:42 am
5:43 am
5:44 am
brian: one texas border town sounding alarm of migrants being released after testing positive for covid-19. our next guest is asking for pause to releasing migrants to the community. henry cuellar lives and breathes this and it's more important than party and politics, it's about the people he represents. how bad is it congressman in congressman, look, i've seen the 2014 surge and 2019 surge and now the '21. usually you have high peaks, march, april, may and june and now july going into august and we are not seeing this stop.
5:45 am
you know, we have to put attention, first of all to our border communities, prioritize the border communities and also we have to think about men and women that are doing this work. they don't want just a pat in the back, they need support, they need equipment, they need personnel and we need to understand that there's this serious situation down there at the border. brian: we know that the vaccines, they are not prevalent and central and south america and top 10 countries where these people are coming from so they are coming over here, excellent chance they will be spreading the virus. does the administration realize this, there's no testing going on? >> well, you know, i don't know the administration knows it but i can tell you that the men and women on the ground, you know, border patrol or even customs, they understand because, look, in the valley, there were 70 agents that have tested positive in the laredo area another 15, not only the agents but also families when they go home, so we have to prioritize our men
5:46 am
and women of homeland and we have to prioritize definitely the border communities. i had, for example, i've had county judge richard cortez, a democrat in hidalgo where all of this is happening. he called me yesterday and said, we have to put a pause in about an hour or so la joya we are having the phone call. you saw what happened, they released people in a hotel but nobody watches them. there were some of them that were sick, positive walking around and nobody told them that they got released in la joya, that is part of my community and i want to talk to those officials in about an hour or so. brian: congressman, if the administration listened to you they can fix the problem. turn people away, send message to central and south america, you see the top 10 countries where they are coming from. this has stopped before, how come you they don't listen to you, you're a democrat with a border community as your constituency? >> again, they don't have to listen to me. they need to listen to the
5:47 am
border communities and the border communities are saying, hold up, put a pause. my hometown of laredo, they filed a lawsuit against the federal government saying, we don't want anymore more buses of migrants coming in. the county judge in web county put a declaration saying we are going to stop border patrol buses from bringing in any more migrants into this because cases have shot up and hospitals are getting full. we don't have the personnel to work at the hospitals because a lot of them have been sick. so this is what we are facing. they don't have to listen to me, but they need to listen to the border communities, to the border communities and they certainly need to listen to the men and women. they don't just want a pat in the back, they need some real help now. brian: and we are in a pandemic and they told us the migrants were going to stop because it's so hot and they are still coming. congressman cuellar, you care about the american people more
5:48 am
than party and it's so rare today. i hope people start listening to you. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you. brian: you got it. meanwhile let's check in senior meteorologist janice dean for the fox weather forecast. janice: beautiful day in new york city. showers and thunderstorms that move through overnight. cooling off those temperatures, we are going to see the heat rise over the central u.s. and parts of the northwest where we have heat advisories in effect temperatures in 90's to 100-degree range. that's the heat index, what it feels like with temperature and humidity combined. it's dangerous for a lot of folks today and thursday so keep in mind and then we have the potential for showers, thunderstorms and main some severe weather across the upper midwest which we will continue to track. all right, my friend, brian. brian: cancel culture and political correctness as he returns to the stand-up stage. clay travis to react. first let's check in with dana

5:54 am
>> this is what medians need to be doing. vanguard of battling cancel culture because they are the once pointing out absurdities in society and sometimes we need to be able to talk about those ridiculous things that are going on using humor in a way that allows us to penetrate frankly in a way that doesn't happen if you talk about things seriously. steve: but clay, you know how things work these days and so many things have been canceled and he has to be a little afraid after all he's a conservative and takes somebody on twitter or one of the platforms to start complaining and next thing you know, boom, it's hard for him to get booked someplace else. >> yeah, i'd like to think that the fans of people like tim alan are going to allow him to win no matter what. here is what i would say, everyone complaining about comedians is a loser and if we saw them protesting outside of comedy clubs with a poster board about a joke going on inside of a comedy club, we would all
5:55 am
drive by, look at them and think, what a loser, why are people paying attention to them but that's more effort than going on social media and complaining yet we treat the social media effort for seriously. steve: i have to ask you a sports question, aaron rogers showed up, looks like he will be throwing the ball for green bay, the feud out of his deal looks like it's over and green bay won because he's going to play for them. >> at least one more year. he showed up for people out there who were fans of the sitcom the office in a kevin t-shirt making a statement. the last version green bay packers style, for those who remember the chicago bulls documentary about the final season of that team together, this feels like that for green bay. it's super bowl or bust. i would love to see aaron rogers to a super bowl. he's only been there once and won it once and has a team to get back there.
