tv The Ingraham Angle FOX News July 28, 2021 7:00pm-8:00pm PDT
but as always, thank you for being with us. i have some good news. in the meantime, let not your heart be troubled, laura ingraham is up next. i'll help you set your dvr, have a great night. back here tomorrow night. ♪ ♪ >> laura: i am a laura ingraham and this is "the ingraham angle" from a very busy washington tonight. i california restaurant owner has decided to ignore gavin newsom's new edicts, throwing open his eatery to the unvaccinated and mask lists. he's here tonight on why he's doing it his own way and why he isn't scared of the repercussions. plus one of the most embarrassing displays you will ever see from a sitting united states congressman. raymond arroyo has a cringeworthy video in seen and unseen.
but for a star general discontent. that's a focus of tonight's angle. now towards the end of the show last night i interviewed a guess that you have probably never heard of before. josiah lippincott, a marine vet and a student at hillsdale college shared a sock, because shocking story that i think it speaks volumes about the state of today's current military leadership. major general patrick donahoe, the commanding officer at fort benning, georgia, apparently has so much time on his hands that he decided to take up a fight with him, who would criticize the military's obsession with getting young healthy service personnel vacs. although the dod had tragically lost 36 service members due to covid, and the last quarter of 2020, 26 additional service members have taken their own lives compared to the prior year. but the strangely defensive and sensitive general donahoe
accused josiah of engaging in false equivalency. then, he issued this courageous tweet. hey, hillsdale, come get your boy. in other words, shut him up for me. what an utterly predictable eighth grade great girlish response from a person with such influence and stature. >> when you hear him spotting msnbc talking points that shows he is a quality on the level of education and thought process that goes across all of the services. we have 906 admirals and generals in our military and its increasingly a bloated group and ideologically similar group as well. these guys spent 20 years in afghanistan and spent $2.4 trillion of american taxpayer money. we lost 2300 service members and we left bagram air force base in
the middle of the night. americans should be angry, they should be demanding answers. >> laura: sadly the politicized book of vocation is becoming institutionalized. and you and i and every taxpaying american are funding this nonsense. last month at a house hearing, mark milley sounded more like a blm officer. >> i want to understand white rage, what is wrong with understanding? and having some situational understanding about which country we are here to defend. all of this could trigger, and he tried to claim that this was all just some big misunderstanding. >> this is not something that the united states military is
embracing and pushing and causing people to subscribe to. >> can you agree that understanding whiteness and white rage and over 100 car cadets probably isn't something we should be teaching our future leaders of the united states army? >> as you've described it it is certainly something that should not have occurred. >> you know what should occur? a complete top to bottom review and reform of our armed forces. the depressing truth is that we haven't won a war and in decades. we didn't defeat the taliban and i didn't brings peace and stability to iraq. the military is filled with courageous men and women who are being abysmally served by the leadership. so our romantic ideal of america's top military leaders as selfless and heroic come with old movies and heroic history.
do we even know how top commanders are chosen today? i think a cursory review of recent history would find that getting promoted through the ranks today has less to do with one success on and off the battlefield than it does with how well one plays the current political game. the pentagon is under the spell of corporate america and contrary to what austen said in that hearing, it's gone totally woke. we need a military led by men and women who stand above the political fray and focus on the mission of defending our national interest. certainly not leaders who are more focused on their post military job prospects then they are on improving our war fighting capabilities. we are at a fork in the road for our top military brass. seen what happens to the credibility of other institutions that forget what their original mission is.
all these idiotic a few years ago most americans would have listened closely to what the head of the cdc had to say about any given health threat. ditto for the capitol police who testified on wednesday. despite the crowds they had known for weeks would show up at the capital on january 126th, the capitol police couldn't hold the capital perimeter on that day and then in itself is a scandal. it's kind of examining why that happened and they turned to blaming president trump who they all obviously despise. this officer who called trump a hit man in his testimony is so unbiased and so professional that last year he attacked me personally on twitter. he deleted it, so brave, but we have it.
again, credibility of another institution greatly harmed. this is all terrible for america. >> instead of this january 6 commission i suggest we have a commission on the wars in the middle east. bring these guys before congress and make them testify as to what they were doing. this disconnect from reality has been there for a long time and it needs to be held to account. >> laura: we have plans that are billions of our budget and so can't fly and and we have leaders like patrick donahoe who spent more time last week thinking about how he would silence of veteran on twitter then how the military little family defeat china. >> they played in a war game in of last year and without overstating, it failed
miserably. team that had been studying the united states for the last 20 years just ran rings around us and knew exactly what we were going to do before we did it. >> laura: if that doesn't send a chill up and down your spine i don't know what will. if we are going to spend more than $700 billion a year and on the military then we need a military that can win a war instead of politics. taxpayers spent a lot on her national defense and our recruits sign up because they love the country. someone who plans to devote years of his or her life to serve the country deserves more then vaccine bullying and diversity training. and that's the angle. back with me tonight is josiah lippincott, marine vet and contributor to american mind. josiah, we had such a huge response to your appearance last night that we had to kind of cut short because of the nature of our break that i had to bring you back. some of the last bastions of
traditionalism in our country law enforcement and the military, they are being transformed. before our very eyes. what's the end goal here in your mind? >> that's a perfect question, laura. real quickly from the introduction, i'm not a combat veteran, although i am a veteran and i served in the marine corps for four years but my experience was with the peace time marine corps that emerged in a post in really serious engagements in afghanistan and iraq. you ask about what's the in-state, i think for the military today, it is to keep the money flowing without having to confront the reality of the increasing obsolescence of many of our systems that are designed to win wars that america no longer is fighting. the insurgency is a different type of conflict of the military is not built to defeat. >> laura: when you heard that
disturbingly frank assessment of our ability to military responded to china. you spent time with generals tweeting about how hillsdale should come and get you, talking about critical race theory whether you have it or don't have it in the theory. >> absolutely. one of the difficulties that comes out of this, and the military will address these kinds of conflicts. that's the way more effective than anything they can do conventionally and i think at some level are generals know this.
there are 100,000 chinese students in american opportunities, and at the end of the term there were 300,000. we are serious about confronting china, and the industry that was taken from us with the assistance of wall street, we have to address the elite. those drugs, that fentanyl is made in china and it's in mexico. about addressing chemical warfare against the american people and concentrate on building the secure border and defending our national sovereignty and then restoring industries back to the united states. that means twitter spats with civilians and veterans is not the way to go about accomplishing it. >> laura: at this general donahoe is a real piece of work. i've got to say, it's embarrassing, completely embarrassing.
i the head of the u.s. central demand made an announcement over the weekend. >> the united states has increased air strikes with supportive afghan forces over the last several days and will appear to continue the support over the next couple weeks of the taliban continues their attacks. >> laura: it's josiah, many are wondering whether they military establishment is going to demand that joe biden reverse course on an afghanistan withdrawal. is that possibly what's going on here? >> absolutely. there's a lot of money involved in these wars. that's line the pockets of these defense contractors. if generals are done, where did they go? straight to the boards of these firms. at the end of its term, the military admitted publicly in the news that they had lied to president trump about troop levels in syria. our generals would absolutely do the same thing to joe biden and
they probably already have. so what is needed is accountability. congress has got to get involved and they need to start asking questions. what are these guys doing overseas and are you telling the truth because that cannot be assumed. >> laura: while i think we are having all these committees on this or that issue on january 6th, or it beats trump for the second time and we lost war after war, or at least we haven't won war after war. then we are continuing to get these massive checks. >> absolutely, it's absurd. americans have paid a lot of money in taxpayer dollars and we paid in blood, we need to have accountability on all these fronts and i would say this, going back to general donahoe, that's a guy that graduated from harvard or has a degree from a or won some kind of fellowship from there and what i would say is i'm willing to challenge that guy to a debate on policy, on covert policy and foreign policy
and i'll do it. if he wants to come get me, he could come to hildale himself and come get me. i extend that invitation to all of our generals and admirals. i will debate the budget in public with you anytime, anyplace. i'll go to the war college, annapolis or west point but it's time, someone has got to hold these guys accountable and if congress isn't going to do it than it needs to be every day citizens on social media, and journalism or some of these publications, to just hold our leaders to account. >> josiah, thank you. laura is having some power difficulties and we will get back with her and just a moment, this happens in live television. this happens with civil unrest, from may through july of 2020 more than 2,000 officers sustained injury in the line of duty. of course those all occurred outside of the spotlight of the u.s. capitol. they have nowhere to go to get
their hearing. one of those men is our next guest, l.a.p.d. officer anthony deas. last summer he and his partners responded when the george floyd protest got out of control. he and other officers arrived, and even as they attempted to secure the area. officer diaz was suddenly struck through the car window. after being knocked out, diaz says he returned to consciousness to see blood everywhere, his fellow officers were able to break away from the rioters and find a metro police car that helped lead them to safety. diaz was stitched up from his wound but later learned the projectile had cracked his skull, resulting in bleeding in his brain. officer diaz is miraculously back on the job and is running
the boston marathon to raise money for injured officers. we are so pleased to have officer anthony deas with us now. thank you for being here, were you afraid for your life that night? >> yes, lucky to be alive. many officers were hurt and injured, officers died, and i think very little attention has been given to us. how this had been presented, we went out there and felt like everybody had our backs. i know chief morris started safe l.a. task force and he directed the robbery homicide division to conduct criminal investigations on serious crimes that happened in the civil unrest. i'm very confident that rhd will
do their job but i don't feel like gascon will do his job. >> as i read your story, i'm thinking of the hearing that was on capitol hill yesterday were capitol hill police officers were able to tell their stories and bear their wounds, if you will. are you waiting, do you think it's time for officers like you were caught in the melee of these riots? is it time for you to tell your stories for the country to hear? >> yes. we are out here risking our lives for people we don't know, and regardless of all that attention, negative attention, we still probably put our uniforms on and go out there and do our job to the best of our capabilities. >> officer diaz, did you ever
hear from congressman schiff who represents los angeles, nancy pelosi and kamala harris, she was a senator of your state. it did to reach out to you and your colleagues about what you endure it at the hands of these writers? >> no, never. not once did i get contact. >> that's unbelievable. do you feel supported by local officials here? >> no. i mean i have confidence in my fellow officers in my department but i don't feel like all of the officials were there to really help officers do our job and safely get home every day. >> officer diaz, r prayers are with you. and good luck in the
boston marathon. why would a vaccine resident side to take the shot after watching a fully vaccinated congressmen with the best health care in the country no masking up? that question led to a confrontation between my next guest byron douglass and a democratic congressman. he will give us the details, next. in all 3 of these ways... increases insulin when you need it... decreases sugar... and slows food. the majority of people taking rybelsus® lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than 7. people taking rybelsus® lost up to 8 pounds. with type 1 diabetes.

>> we have a crisis at our border and we are playing footsie with mask mandates and the people's house. i mean, it's absolutely absurd what this body is doing, the people's house. it's an embarrassment, a mockery and the american people are fed up. they want to go back to life, they want to go back to business, they want to go back to school with other children being forced to wear masks. >> that sentiment from congressman chip roy is pretty universal among republicans. after speaker pelosi renewed the mask mandate in the house today and she threatened fines for those who don't comply. she even got help from the media in collecting some of those fines as one cnn reporter spent time counting those without masks, tweeting that she caught 24 massless republicans, the
horror. adding is a lot of frustration over it. and while she didn't turn to tattletale and, old nance still found a way to act like a 12-year-old. >> it's against the science. >> he's a, unbelievable. as a bottom line, the democrats are doing more than any facebook or robert kennedy to kill the vaccine. when you see the politicians that have access to the best health care in the country wearing masks they are sending a very clear message to the vaccine hesitant. there is no other side to this pandemic. joining us now is florida congressman byron donalds. congressman, you actually got into it with one of your colleagues today who chastise you for not wearing a mask. what happened? >> i was actually just trying to get onto the floor to vote and he was going through one of the metal detectors which by the way
is still a dumb thing to have in front of the house for but that's another story for another day. he turned around and saw me and said you are selfish for not being vaccinated and that's why you're all having to wear a mask. i looked at him like mind your business, why are you worried about what i'm doing? worry about yourself, you've been vaccinated. congratulations, take care of yourself and leave me alone. mind your business. why are you worried about why it i'm doing? at the left has completely gone off the rails and are not paying attention to the science, they continue to pay attention to political science and unfortunately they are in power and the elections have consequences. >> i think this is a scene that we are going to see play out across the country. chris cuomo had two on his show to discuss your decision not to take the vaccine and this is how it went. >> byron donalds is not going to take it because he doesn't care what biden wants. you think that's a good message for people to hear?
>> the first thing is my message was never about joe biden. the message was about me and my own personal health. >> i'm not getting vaccinated because i don't want to. i want to read your words. it's my show. >> why do you think he didn't want to hear what you had to say, congressman? why the bullying? >> because he's wrong. he was wrong last night and many of his consistent viewers who i went to college with called me and let me know that personally. he's wrong and the left is wrong. look at what the cdc came out with today. they said we have to go back to them asking if you are vaccinated. lo and behold the study that the cdc is using is a study that failed peer review and as a study out of india that deals with the vaccine that is not available in the united states. they are playing politics over there in the white house instead of giving information to the american people. when the information comes out to the american people, people
can make decisions for themselves. people like chris cuomo or whatever his name is that i got into it with today, they have this warped view that everyone has to follow their lead and follow the protocol in order to get through covid-19. the truth of the matter is, people are mostly threat now and people need to govern their own health care, make personal decisions for themselves and learn how to live life fully manage the pandemic like we've been doing for the past several months. >> now i'm going to throw you to laura ingraham who i think is back online. >> laura: raymond, i think we should just do this together at this point. there is wicked thunderstorm. and d.c. and sell stuff is going on and off but this is live television. raymond did a great job filling in. i have to point out, dr. jonathan reiner from george washington university, he sounded off on the cdc mask guidance issue.
>> do you really think that cdc has changed mask guidance for vaccinated adults, to use dr. wilensky's words, because of really vaccinated person may transmit a virus to a nonvaccinated person? no. they change guidance to do the right thing which was to force basically on vaccinated people to be vaccinated and to mask up. >> laura: is so even their allies are complaining and it sounds like they are making decisions not based on science. i mean who can follow this? >> the only signs the left cares about his political science. they have a problem. they have weaponize the media to count gross cases while ignoring actual statistical data which is what is the amount of hospitalizations per capita and what are the deaths per capita, what does that look like in a post vaccine world?
the media still reporting on this as if we are back in my summer not understanding the effect of the metrics have completely changed. so the white house is trapped in this because i put out these arbitrary goalpost, to make joe biden look good. people didn't comply with what joe biden wanted to do and now they are scrambling. the reality is this, hospitalization rates for cabot are very manageable. deaths per capita are down compared to the amount of cases we are seeing going up because the people who are getting affected are mostly unvaccinated people who are not in the vulnerable age areas of being plus 65 or having other health abnormalities. that's where we are. what the cdc on the white house should be doing is collecting more information and releasing that to the public with guidance for the american people, not mandates, not authoritarianism like they are doing right now. >> laura: congressman, great to see you tonight. we are just weeks before the september 14th election and the california recall and a new shock poll has team knew some a
bit scared. voters who plan to cast a ballot are now evenly divided when it comes to the question of whether governor newsom should be removed from office. lucky for gavin he has some deep-pocketed friends. where could they be? in silicon valley for perhaps? and of course the entertainment industry. where netflix's reed hastings has given him a whopping $3 million. but there is a new intern in the influence peddling race, the teachers unions. thankful for their year and a half out of the classroom which newsom granted them they are now opening their checkbooks. in the past two days alone the teachers unions have dropped a whopping $2 million into the newsom's coffers. here now is a keen observer harmeet dhillon, ceo of the center for american liberty which has had a huge wins against newsom and these draconian orders of his. now this isn't just the teachers union paying newsom back for all
of his help, it's a down payment on what could be another year out of the classroom. no? >> absolutely. the kind of rhetoric that you've been hearing out of the teachers union is it's never going to be safe to go back into the classroom until covid is over and eradicated. and we might simply have to reduce the risk to an acceptable amount. this payment as you say may be for the next year of special accommodations and letting these teachers effectively not do their jobs for another year which is really contrary to the interest and of the health interest specifically of california's children. so you mentioned core victories, we won a court victory last week in court for private school kids and unfortunately the public school kids are still at the mercy of the teachers union so that $2 million contribution is definitely significant and for boats more the same.
>> laura: to your point, randi weingarten is already tip in your hand on this issue of what's going to come down the year road for the school year. watch. >> vaccination is the number one gold standard that we need to bring back our masks for schools. so the bottom line is, we are going to keep kids safe, we will keep our members safe and we will try to open up schools. >> laura: okay. try to open up schools and by the way gavin, here's your money. what a scam. there should be people put in jail for this. >> that was a word salad of every press release that they've had over the past year. that we need vaccination, we need masks. those of us who are vaccinated are scratching our heads now because we are also being required to wear masks and i think this is a very dicey proposition, very scary for young people, particularly women
and concerns about reproductive effects of these vaccines and so i think you are going to have to pay in california, gavin newsom, if the schools do not open again in the coming year. >> laura: i should also say the prison union also gave money to help fight the recall. they shelled out the money. >> absolutely, they are big donors as well. there is a mixed record, the sei you will come at largest union of public-sector employees in california have sent a letter to the governor is saying that the demand to wear a mask and be tested and be vaccinated is in violation of their collective bargaining agreement. so it's hard to figure out who to cheer for here. but the union is standing up to the state. >> laura: good to see you tonight. simone biles pulled out of the olympics and the devil has made it nbc bring the exorcist back to theaters, but why? raymond arroyo is back with us
>> laura: it's time for our "seen and unseen" segment where we expose the biggest cultural stories of the day and for that we turn to fox news contributor raymond arroyo who saved us during a thunderstorm. simone biles, the six-time u.s. olympic pool gold medalist pulled out of the competition, that was big news this week. she explained her decision this way. >> it's okay sometimes to even sit out the big competitions to focus on yourself. no injuries thankfully and that's why i took a step back because i didn't want to do something silly out there and get injured so i thought it was best of these girls took over and the rest of the job. i just felt like it would be a little bit better to take a backseat and work on my mindfulness. >> i have a slightly schizophrenic reaction to all of
this. on the one hand i get it, she had about performance and she was lost amid air and a flip and she probably feared breaking her neck or permanently injuring herself. there was also the traumatic next abuse that she endured at the hands of the evil dr. nasser but the time to work through all of that was before the olympic trials, not during the olympic games. you are part of a team now and if you can physically perform, your job is to get into that headspace where you can overcome your fears and jitters and stick the landing. here's how one of her teammates jordan childs reacted. >> i did try to tell her, you know how to do everything. this is you, it's your moment. it's all up to you. at that moment in time she was telling her so she didn't want to harm herself. i mean we all understood what she was going through, we all understood everything that was happening and we support her. the one while you had to feel pretty bad for the teammates
because they obviously want to be very supportive of her and they love her but they worked hard to and they still got the silver. it's a tough deal. i have such admiration for the athletes. >> and simone biles has been an incredible champion but i think she succumbed to a lot of the media pressure and the pressure and expectations that she placed on herself. she wore the leotard with a goat during some of the trials, so she started embracing this idea that she was the greatest of all time and that gets in your head to. i think some of that may have played against her when her body started doing other things during the competition. we move from the goat to the groan, there's nothing worse than a congressman straining for relevance and in this case democratic representative sean kasten decided to reference this bergey song. ♪ ♪
>> and here is congressman kasten's tragic take off, trying call attention to the federal energy regulatory commission. watch. >> a rise to continue our celebration of the hot ferg summer. so listen up you all, this is it. the federal environmental regulatory commission, better known as ferc, i will go no work on my fitness. >> good lord. the people of the sub chicago suburbs he represents must be so proud. he is a goof. don't reference a song from 2006. i mean let's stop there.
>> laura: first of all, could he yield back forever after that performance? guild back end that said, never come back. >> one of the most terrifying movies of all time is returning to the big screen, sort of. [screening] >> nobody expected it, nobody believed that end i they could stop it. >> nbc and their peacock streaming service just paid $40 billion to the rights to the exorcist. they are going to make three sequels to the 1973 classic. it good luck with that. they tried to reboot this property multiple times, a fox tv series was based on that, a prequel in 2004 but none of them came close to the original.
there's a reason people are still terrified of that 73 classic. >> laura: and you and i were so blessed to have known bill luddy, an incredible writer and man. but are there any new ideas in hollywood or are we just going to keep going with old tvs shows and old cartoons and old comic books? >> they are going to do just that. they are going to use these old represents without something great. the exorcist was about a trial of faith, and of course his directorial brilliance, you can't replicate that. >> laura: i thank you. that first clip, it looks like what pelosi would do to anyone on the hill without a mask. tackling and exorcist. you heard a lot about vaccine mass comic mandates hitting restaurants and bars but what if someone decided to take on the tyrants in the bluest of blue states by doing the opposite of
