6:01 am
threat tag. >> dana: questions about attorney general merrick garland's testimony last month and whether he was being completely honest. mike emanuel starts off our coverage live in washington >> top republican on house judiciary jim jordan offering this assessment of mer i can garland. >> he either lied to us or doesn't know. either one is bad for the country, bad for justice in
6:02 am
america. i cannot imagine any circumstance where we treat parents or give them the label of domestic terrorist but in fact the day before as you pointed out, the day before an email gets sent out to agents across this country saying the opposite. >> he says republicans on house judiciary have received an email dated october 20 referencing a new threat tag created by the f.b.i. criminal divisions and directs f.b.i. personnel to apply the new threat tag to all investigations and assessments of threats specifically directed against school board administrators, board members, teachers and staff. the october 20th email talks about scoping this threat on a national level and providing an opportunity for comprehensive analysis of the threat picture for effective engagement. house judiciary republicans say it's evidence that federal law enforcement put counter terrorism tools in operation at
6:03 am
the behest of the national school board association. the nsba asked president biden to use federal tools including the patriot act to target parents. five days later garland directed the f.b.i. and other d.o.j. assets to a disturbing spike in harassment and threats of violence at school board meetings. here is garland on capitol hill the day after that email was written. >> i can't imagine any circumstance in which the patriot act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children nor can i imagine a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism. >> republicans say garland has some explaining to do. >> dana: a big issue. >> bill: democrats in congress pushing forward with their multi-trillion social spending plan as we wait the cbo report on how much they project it to cost. david spunt live from the white
6:04 am
house begins our coverage from the north lawn. hello. >> good morning to you. president biden going to be touting his build back better plan he still wants to turn into law talking about the climate. he will head to detroit, michigan, this afternoon to go to a general motors electric car facility to talk about a future without oil. this visit, bill, comes as all of our viewers know as gas prices continue to increase. you can see 3.41 the national average versus 2.12 one year ago. add that onto the chip shortage making cars scarce and spells problems expected to last a few more months at least. chuck schumer is pushing president biden to tap into the united states oil reserves to help lower those gas prices. these reserves are strictly for emergencies. schumer says now is an emergency. the white house bracing for friday when a congressional budget office is expected to release for the build back
6:05 am
better bill estimated by the white house and democrats in congress to be 1.75 trillion. but the cbo will give a more retailed number. >> talking about a bill that's fully paid for it is important it be fully paid for. let's be clear, if it's not we have to understand that and understand what the long-term impact on our nation's debt is. >> interesting move yesterday. you don't typically see a spokesman andrew baits at the white house yesterday down playing the cbo's ability to properly score this. >> they are diminishing the results. they know the cbo score will show us what we already knew. not 1.75 trillion closer to 4 trillion. what it will do to inflation if it will make it harder to make ends meet than it already is for most americans. >> arguably the most powerful person in the senate, the one holding all the negotiation cards now because of the tight
6:06 am
margins joe manchin from west virginia moderate democrat continues to express concern about build back better and the impact on inflation. house speaker nancy pelosi is instructing all members to stay close, stay close by in washington may have to miss thanksgiving. the hope is to pass build back better before. we'll find out the cbo score in two days on friday. >> bill: turning the screws, right? math quickly here now since the start of the pandemic. early 2020. congress has spent close to 7 trillion dollars and that doesn't count the bbb price tack which is said to cost 1.8 trillion but could run as high as 5 trillion dollars. cbo expected to release the score on friday and we'll stay tuned for that. a couple of things to go over. >> dana: one thing, every president if they're worried about a cbo score will try to work the refs.
6:07 am
it is nonpartisan but they can be political if you think about what happened during obamacare. they came back at the last minute and gave them enough of what they needed to get it past. they don't have big margins now. >> bill: "new york times" wrote build back better can be deemed paid for if one embraces budget gimmicks. initiatives will be allowed to expire in a few years which is not the case. front load spending while tax revenues ariesh only over a decade. who he says at the end of that piece is you have to look for more revenue sources and that means raising taxes. >> dana: and then you had jen psaki tweeting why when americans are seeing higher prices are republicans united a bill to lower core costs? she says the answer is they're rooting for inflation. that is the opposite. you just heard jim banks say ot kudlow's show last night the
6:08 am
american people are concerned about inflation and all this money. >> maybe it gets punted to the next year. >> dana: they won't miss thanksgiving. come on now. that won't happen. we're watching the kyle rittenhouse jury. they requested pages 1-6 of jury instructions and asked for the remaining 30 pages later in the afternoon. let's bring in jonathan turley. i don't know if there is a lot we could imagine what is possibly happening in the jooury room. i would say one thing they're being very careful and deliberative and going through the jury instructions and making sure they have it exactly right. >> that's right. i said monday i didn't think we could expect a jury decision any earlier than wednesday and even that would be relatively quick. this has been a long trial. there are five counts. there are almost 40 pages of
6:09 am
jury instructions. it takes a while to plow through that. jurors try to get this right. this is following a fairly expected pattern. it is notable the first thing they asked for were the instructions on self-defense. they're right. that will be the center of all of their deliberations. >> bill: kind of the nut of it, right? they asked for pages 1-6. i thought the jury instructions that the judge was reading the other day struck me as very long. am i wrong or is that just the way it goes in a complicated matter? >> jury instructions are the bain of everyone in the courtroom. even rittenhouse who is facing his whole life in the balance of this trial was fighting back yawns. it must be pretty bad when the guy who is really on the bubble is fighting to stay awake. that is very common.
6:10 am
these instructions do go long. this is a little longer than i think they needed to be. these are pattern instructions. but the judge largely stayed with the recommended instructions for that state. it was the defense that said they didn't want to reduce the instructions because the judge suggested that they might want to cut this back a bit. the defense wanted for each of these key components to have the language repeated to the jury. the concern about the defense they'll look at the instructions and make sure the jury gets the full language when they do that. it is like invading russia in winter. it takes a long time. >> dana: i want to ask you one thing. while rittenhouse and his attorney were pulling the names out of the tumbler to determine who was on the jury, you could hear the protests from outside. you could hear them in the courtroom.
6:11 am
i am assuming the jurors can hear them outside as well. i am not saying it would cloud anybody's judgment and something that might be on their minds? >> it can. it raises the question whether they should have been sequestered. even in the courtroom you can't protect them from that type of noise. they know about the controversy. they know about the threat of protests. and you can't keep them bubbled away from all those influences. i didn't like that moment by the way when the judge allowed rittenhouse to pull those names. that seemed to me more recreational than legal. >> he has been doing it for 20 years in his courtroom. >> yeah. he is more of -- i think he has been treated unfairly. his decisions for the most part have been right in the middle, right down the line. i don't expect he has committed a reversible error on any of
6:12 am
these issues. he has gotten a lot of criticism for no reason. i don't like having the defendant play that role. i prefer having the clerk do it. >> dana: i can see that. we'll stay on it today. we'll see you throughout today and whenever the verdict comes back we'll bring it to everyone live. >> bill: in a moment new drone video exclusive from the fox flight team on the border showing hundreds of migrants on a day-to-day basis including a rising number of unaccompanied children. we're back live at the border to let you know what's happening. >> dana: the gulf between progressive and normal democrats growing wider. the president's agenda hangs in the balance. chris christie has thoughts on that and how republicans can seize the chaos to chart a new path forward. he will join us live in studio next. veteran homeowners- with home values at all-time highs and rates at near all-time lows now's the time to do more

6:18 am
>> the average person just wants their government to function and allow them to do well and their kids to do better. it is not rocket science. >> it boils down to the most simplistic of terms listening to people. there continues to be significant and substantial uneast in our country. >> bill: some of these moderate democrats reading the writing on the wall. progressives pushing the build back better through the house. chris christie is former governor of new jersey and author of a book republican rescue. >> i wrote it because times are so desperate for the country that we need a viable, active two-party system with a republican party that can win. 2018 and 2020 we lost the
6:19 am
house, senate and white house within two years. the only other time that happened to the republican party was hoover and we only won the white house twice in the next 36 years. we can't afford that. the book is about saying no more looking backwards. let's look forward. let's lay out an agenda for 2022 that can win and let's get back to winning again. we win we can govern and stop some of the things we see in washington >> dana: youngkin, no better year to run as a republican than 2022. >> the youngkin race was executed very well. he talked about virginia issues. let's eliminate the grocery tax. great issue. put parents in charge of their children's's education, great issue. let's grow jobs in virginia. that's all he spoke about and terry mccauliffe ran on the past. ran trump ads and all the rest
6:20 am
he thought would demonize glenn youngkin. people said it looks like youngkin. we have to run races like that. people need to talk about tissues that voter cares about. not the grievance and vendetta politics of the past. >> bill: for some democrats on the hill, maybe a lot of them, think they have not done enough with their majority and the reason why they lost and they are pushing forward more spending. what is the read in new jersey and in virginia among independents and republicans on that? >> independents went big for jack ciattarelli. independents went big for him. what you are seeing across the country among independents joe biden ran as a centrist uniter. that's what he was going to do. he is governing like fdr. they have buyer's remorse. he lied to us. he lied to us when he said he
6:21 am
would be a centrist and unifyer. i think what they're saying on the hill i want them to keep trying to push this stuff. the more they push it the bigger the losses will be in november in my mind. we need as a republican party to not be making the same mistake about talking about the wrong things. we need to be talking about the future, we need to be talking about crime, jobs, education, inflation, and what rur prescriptions are for all that. >> dana: "the new york times" said democratic socialists need to take a hard look in the mirror. time to recognize our belief might not be popular enough. it does no favors to pretend otherwise. the democrats can't say they weren't warned, right? you can pick up any newspaper. liberal leaning pundit saying wait a minute. at the white house they aren't saying that. they are pushing even harder and it's so strange. >> they hear the clock ticking. one on their majority in congress and they feel like if
6:22 am
we don't do it now we never get a chance to do it and the clock ticking on joe biden's presidency. there is no chance this guy is anything but a one-term president. all this malarkey that he will run in 2024 i would willing to bet every dollar i have and why you are seeing desperation. >> bill: what is your thinking about their philosophy, they being democrats in a case like this where 11 years ago they passed obamacare and nobody predicted they would lose 63 seats in the house. they thought they would take a beating but not 63. but it was more important to get the law into the books and some of these programs right now are considered to be the same way. do you believe that's the play among nancy pelosi and others but maybe not the moderates within the party? >> that's exactly the play. you read it perfectly. here is what happens in our country and dana knows it from her time in the white house. when you give people something it is hard to take it back. so obamacare was given and they
6:23 am
lost 63 seats but obamacare is still here even when we had majorities. >> bill: they get the majority back and they're willing to bite the bullet on that. you are saying pelosi and others are willing to do the same. >> dana: continue to grow. the bills they were trying to pass there is more money for obamacare subsidies. i want to ask you one other thing about new jersey. it was so close that jack ciattarelli could have won. not a lot of attention and the pollster from monmouth who did the poll that dampened everything for the jack ciattarelli campaign said we really screwed up. is that common in new jersey and do you think it is replicated across the country? >> yes to both. patrick murray is a democratic hack operative who is disguising himself as a college professor at a liberal university and his polls -- >> bill: he is at monmouth
6:24 am
university. the poll in new jersey, correct? >> by some people. >> bill: i think he had the race at 10 points. >> 11. the wednesday before the election. wound up being a 2 1/2 point race. he said afterwards trump voters won't speak to me and why my poll is wrong. tell us that when you put the poll out when it's 11 points but i didn't speak to trump voters. if you were honest -- i will tell you, if you put jack ciattarelli it dampened his fundraising and enthusiasm who thought the race was over. i think it's being done in a partisan way. no doubt in my mind. i had to deal with the partisan monmouth poll for eight years when i was governor. >> bill: what do we learn about your relationship. >> good friends tell people the truth. i told donald trump the truth on election night and after election night the election was
6:25 am
lost and you can't say something was stolen unless you have the evidence to prove it. that's the prosecutor in me. you can't bring an indictment if you don't have the evidence. he has never had the evidence for that. when he talks about all this stuff talking about grievances and vendettas it drags down our ability to -- the liberal policies to try to put into effect. i want republican on republican violence to stop. i want us to stand up against what the democrats are trying to do. they pass this bill it will be nearly impossible for us to reverse it no matter what happens. so we need to be focused on the future, not the past. and he is my friend. i was the first one who endorsed him. >> bill: he is part of the future? >> he can be if he wants to be. he has to talk about the future. if all you want to do is talk about 2020 and not present evidence to back it up, which he hasn't done now for a year you can't be part of the future.
6:26 am
but his ideas, many of his ideas as president were very good. i supported him. i was the first one to endorse him. first elected official to endorse him in 2016 when i got out of the race. i chaired his transition and played joe biden and hillary clinton at the debate. but good friends like that have to tell people the truth. the truth is we need to move forward and come together as republicans to stop joe biden and the liberals. >> bill: you spoke to him last when? >> around christmas last year. a year almost. >> dana: congratulations on the book. i read it. very good. good storyteller. page turner. is the balance in power about the shift as more democrats say they aren't running for reelection in 2022. reaction from former wisconsin congressman sean duffy coming up next. >> garland said we would never treat them like domestic terrorists. that's what the left wing
6:27 am
groups wanted. garland said we won't do that. now we know the counter terrorism division has been tracking parents.

>> either one is bad for the country, bad for justice in america. understand this, laura, as we speak at this moment the f.b.i. is not maybe, is treating parents as terrorist threats. and the attorney general came in front of the committee and said just the opposite. >> dana: jim jordan ripping into attorney general merrick garland before his testimony last month after the report claimed the f.b.i. is using anti-terror tools to track parents reportedly threatening school board members. he insisted the -- we have sean duffy.
6:33 am
i understand your book is number one on amazon. i don't know if it was the power of our interview on the five last night. congratulations on that. >> it was number 7 and we did the five and went to number one. the two of you are both participating in this book. >> bill: i recommend dana's chapter. >> dana: i recommend bill's chapters and the pictures as well. congratulations on that. sean, this story is so interesting to me. the school board association gets to the white house and says we're very concerned. the white house says us too. that message gets delivered to the justice department and the justice department puts out the memo and the f.b.i. and causes consternation and several school boards didn't want to be part of it. we aren't saying parents are domestic terrorists. you have this, a serious accusation that patriot act is being used to track parents. your thoughts. >> take a step back. these kind of tools have been used for a while.
6:34 am
the i.r.s. targeted tea party patriots. operation choke point. bank regulators used the force of regulation to get banks to stop backing industries obama didn't like. tobacco shops or smral dollar lenders. this has transitioned into the program with the f.b.i. where as we all know this is wrong not what the f.b.i. should be doing targeting parents as domestic terrorists. but what it does silences opposition. they want if you don't agree we should sexualize and racialize our children we want to shut you down. the best way is to have the f.b.i. threaten to go after you. justice used to apply to everybody equally. not any longer. now it's used for political purposes, which is shameful for the future of america. >> bill: there was an exchange with mayorkas and tom cotton. play this clip.
6:35 am
>> has anyone from the department of homeland security met with anyone from the national school board association? >> not that i'm familiar with. >> there is no real threats coming to skol boards but for speech which is protected in the first amendment. this just underscores what a non-issue this is. but also dana brought up this point. i think merrick garland isn't being truthful with the american people and congress and jim jordan asked listen, he
6:36 am
should come back and retestify and answer some questions when we have the leak. the first leak we've seen from the biden administration. it is one thing when you are all on the same page to keep a tight lid on everything that's happening inside. you are going after parents. there are parents in the d.o.j. and f.b.i. and everywrn that look at that and say if i disagree you'll call me a domestic terrorist? i think you'll see more leaking and pushback not just from congress but everyday americans who serve inside the government in high cap -- capacities that don't like what is happening. >> bill: they wanted to chill the opposition at skol board meetings. tell us about the book. dana, i recommend dana's chapter. she recommends mine. >> dana: also i want to read jesse watters chapter. >> if you want to go back to cincinnati, ohio and bill hemmer christmases are in the book.
6:37 am
dana talks going from wyoming and white house christmases. we have a bunch of fox news talent christmas stories. we love christmas and feel like there has been an attack on chris miss. what better way to celebrate christmas than bring the stories people have. we see you and get to know you. what a great way to get to know you in a different capacity. the stories that come from your youth. we share recipes, pictures, >> dana: best recipe is my sister's chex mix recipe. and my mom's recipe, too. >> it's a great gift. get your shopping done early. it was made in america. produced in america by all of

6:39 am
democrats ditching the house. many have said we want to spend more time with family. but the pattern combined with the major loss in virginia pointing to long haulers jumping ship before they are expected to lose the mid-terms. according to a recent poll 51 percent of response dents said they would vote republican if an election for the house was held now. a 10-point lead over the dems and the highest lead in the 40 years the poll has been around. democrats say don't make too much of the retirements. democrat caucus chair jeffries said it is totally normal during a redistricting year. >> this is to be expected. i don't believe it has anything to do with our prospects in 2022. we are going to hold the house and grow the majority. >> kevin mccarthy predicting there will be even more retirements with all eyes now on house speaker nancy pelosi who has indicated in the past
6:40 am
that she would not run for speaker again. >> speaker pelosi has called this tax and spend bill the culmination of her career. she said it just a couple of weeks ago in this very room. based upon the number of democrats jumping ship this may be the culmination of many congressionals careers. every week a new democrat announces their retirement. >> on the senate side one democrat announcing that he will retire as opposed to five republicans. dana. >> dana: senator leahy in vermont. >> bill: a top u.s. defense official issuing a new warning. will china's hypersonic missile capabilities be used to launch a surprise attack on the u.s. william mcraven is with us live with his reaction on that. stay tuned. plus there is this from tuesday. >> who do you think is more deserving of cash payments from the united states government.

6:49 am
what is he up against? >> he is a good friend in the state house and comes over to the republican party. president trump carried five state house district seats that are held by democrats. we suspect more democrats will come out of the republican party because of border security and second amount rights. in border towns i talk to democrat county sheriffs and judges every day and never more embarrassed by their president than now. they are left behind. going back to the haitian migrant caravan crisis the county judge there is a democrat. this administration fails to -- posting people in hospitals and schools. it is lawless. >> dana: what is happening in massachusetts, for example. they would not be this callous about it. it doesn't make sense politically for them. the piece saying the border crisis has president biden's presidency on the edge.

an estimate in texas according to the oil and gas association we'll lose over 200,000 oil and gas jobs because of the harmful policies of this administration and yet begging opec and russia to produce more when we can be producing here and creating blue collar jobs for americans. >> bill: you are running up against ken paxton during the primary. march of next year. why do you believe this administration has been so cavalier about the issue of immigration? we're getting a number we could have two million apprehensions in one year. >> i think this is an anti-texas thing. president biden has never been to texas. kamala harris when she came to el paso. i think we looked it up 40 years of public service he has never been to the border. when you look at kamala harris's trip she spent more time in the air than visiting and talking with border patrol officials. this is a political game. retribution against the state of texas. we refuse to stand for the

policies and beto. >> dana: does he have a chance this time? >> that dog don't hunt in texas when you talk about taking away guns and tearing down the border wall and defunding the police which he is on record for saying. >> bill: thanks for coming in today. we'll follow you and see what happens. thank you very much. >> dana: a big story next hour. jurors set to begin the second day of deliberations in the rittenhouse trial in nine minutes. britney spears speaking out for the first time since she has regained control of her life. what she is saying. you borrow 100% of your home's value. remodel the kitchen, consolidate debt, pay off big bills or save for retirement. newday is holding the line on rates. with today's high home values, turning equity into cash is a really smart move.

at vanguard, you're more than just an investor, you're an owner with access to financial advice, tools and a personalized plan that helps you build a future for those you love. vanguard. become an owner. >> dana: the team formerly known as the cleveland indians are the guardians. team announced the name change earlier this year. the name has already taken by the local roller derby team. the two sides had it out. settled the dispute. the city has two sport franchises by the same name.
6:58 am
>> bill: you don't hear about roller derby much, do you? >> dana: they're making a comeback. >> bill: here is britney. we said that. >> i honestly think you guys saved my life in a way 100%. >> bill: you can't keep her silent, right, dana? speaking out in a video. first time since the judge ended her conservatorship last week. jonathan hunt with details. >> hello. instagram is the way of the future and present. a long time since we've heard from britney as a free woman, of course. for more than oh decade her occasional instagram posts have been cryptic. not anymore. having been released that the judge decided was a toxic conservatorship the multi-millionaire pop star is speaking her mind and
6:59 am
celebrating her freedom. for now at least that seems to mean just enjoying the simple things. >> being able to have keys to my car, being independent and like a woman and owning an atm card and being able to buy sandals. it is the little things for us women but makes a huge difference. >> britney thanked her fans for keeping her going through the 13 years of a conservatorship that control her finances, medical treatment, without the free britney movement she might not have made it. >> because of you guys and the awareness of knowing what was going on and delivering that news to the public for so long you gave it voice to all of them and because of you i think you guys saved my life in a way 100%. >> as for her future britney did not say whether she plans
7:00 am
to record new music but she did say she is going to have a good christmas and a good year. after everything she has been through, no one would begrudge her those things. >> bill: she is buying, right? jonathan hunt in l.a. thank you. >> dana: day two of jury deliberations in kenosha, wisconsin, as we await a verdict in the kyle rittenhouse trial. welcome to a new hour of "america's newsroom." >> bill: jury ending its first day of deliberations, no quick verdict after two weeks of testimony. emotions are running high outside the courthouse. wisconsin's governor urging peace no matter the outcome. 500 national guard troops on stand by just in case. it appears the jury is taking time to cover all of its bases. >> jurors are very faithful to their instructions. they try to get this right. it is notable the first thing they asked for were the instructions on self-defense. that's their right and that will be the center of all of
7:01 am
their deliberations. >> bill: full coverage throughout the trial on fox. andy mccarthy ahead with legal analysis. alexis mcadams outside the courthouse to let us know what's happening today. >> big day here in kenosha, wisconsin for the high profile case of the kyle rittenhouse trial and tensions running high. we saw protestors gathering outside of the courthouse yesterday. these seats were empty as the jurors were deliberating. the judge dismissed the 7 women and 5 men chosen for the night around 5:00 in what some people saw as a shocking twist kyle rittenhouse pulling these names out of a wooden barrel at random. the family says it was a lot of added pressure but they're confident about the outcome. >> that was pretty difficult for kyle. he mentioned it how strange a feeling it was.
7:02 am
he was clearly defending himself. no doubt about that in that -- [inaudible] >> he is on trial for killing two men and shooting three. the jury deciding if kyle rittenhouse was defending himself that night or if he is responsible for provoking the shootings. protestors from both sides at the courthouse an ear shot away from the courtroom. >> with this case in particular, kyle was in self-defense. he was being chased. >> tensions are high. there is a possibility that the murder could be let off. >> right now 500 national guardsmen on stand by nearby while the city and surrounding cities prepare for a verdict in this case. homeowners finding unique ways to protect their family this time. kids live here. hanging outside this home near the courthouse. >> just hoping it means something to someone and they
7:03 am
won't bring the craziness this way. >> deliberations will begin shortly for day two in kenosha. he faces up to life in prison if convicted of the most serious charge against him. >> bill: we're on stand by in new york. back to you shortly. >> dana: let's bring in andy mccarthy, fox news contributor. i was struck by the sign alexis just talked about. kids live here sign outside. hoping if there is violence that house would be spared any sort of violence. i also noted that the judge in this case has received death threats against himself and his children. perhaps that's normal, andy. you tell me. i don't know if the tension is higher here than we've seen in a long time. >> i think unfortunately, dana, the world we live in with social media which invites people to act on their worst instincts anonymously that encourages them to do this sort of thing.
7:04 am
it is a sign of the times. >> dana: let me mention this. i just checked. in the o.j. simpson trial that jury deliberated 4 hours. chauvin 10 hours for two days. anything that can be gleaned from that today? >> this is a strange case, dana, in that most cases that go to trial have factual disputes that the jury has to work out. so we usually get a window into the deliberations. they'll send notes asking for read backs of testimony. in this case the facts are pretty clear and what we're down to is a real hard legal dispute over whether this amounts to self-defense or not. and as john turley pointed out from the very beginning of the deliberations the jury has had the judge's legal instructions particularly instructions on self-defense. they may be working very hard and i agree that most of the
7:05 am
time juries are very diligent. we may not get the usual window. by having the judge's instructions there they may have everything they need to argue among themselves how the case should come out. >> bill: what do you think about jury intimidation? the crowd outside and hear them inside the courthouse. not a good look. if i were a judge i would want to protect them from that. what is your view on it, andy? >> i'm worried about it and been worried about it. it is not just a matter of what's going on outside the courthouse which is egregious and worrisome but we spend a lot of time covering the chauvin case. it was during the covid protocols and really there weren't spectators in the courtroom. i thought to the extent we had cameras they were very
7:06 am
stationary and set rules what they were allowed to cover. in this case it has been much more like pre-covid times. there have been spectators. we know there have been people in the courtroom who have been staring at the jurors, checking out the jurors. the cameras are moving around which i think could unnerve the jurors in the sense if they have video of what they look like that could be broadcast to the public. they don't know exactly how it is being used. they aren't supposed to be looking at publicity about the case. it is not just what's going on outside the courthouse and the judge is not sequestering them and letting them go home and come back. they get some exposure to what's going on in the community. >> dana: can i ask you something on that? in any ways not just this case. could the jury not being sequestered be grounds for an appeal from either side? >> it can be ground for an appeal. it would be highly unusual
7:07 am
unless there is some concrete fact that they can articulate that there is evidence of which is something that you could hang your hat on about intimidation. the chance of getting a reversal on that ground just because there was an atmosphere of intimidation is unlikely. >> bill: thank you for your time. good to get your analysis. we have you on stand by, you and turley and everybody else. >> dana: you can't even walk the dog today. stay right there. >> bill: nice to see you. there are five counts, dana, three of the five if you get charged with that felony up to 60 years in prison. serious stuff. see what the jurors say when it is time >> dana: also this. this is yours. >> bill: the surge in the nation's southern border continues to grow at an alarming rate under the administration of joe biden. hundreds of migrants arriving in the rio grande valley in a daily basis and uptick in
7:08 am
unaccompanied minors. lehoya, texas. what have you found today, bill? >> good morning. hang with us one moment trying to get the audio here. i know this is important stuff. hang with me one moment, bill, maybe we can reestablish that audio perhaps. you were the one telling us yesterday you had about -- >> dana: we can hear you now, bill. >> bill: 65,000. apprehensions in october. we could be on track. hang on. could be on track for 2 million for this year. which is an unbelievably unacceptable number. back to bill with his report in la joya, texas. good morning. >> hopefully the audio is working. we had another large group of migrants. we'll go to the video now. look at the video we shot earlier this morning. we had another large group of migrants cross here this morning. look at the video we shot. as soon as we got out here once
7:09 am
again we see large groups of families walking down the road after crossing illegally into texas. it was an area that was having a border wall being built a half mile got up before biden halted construction. it is a free for all out here. there was a group of at least 100 that turned themselves into this park here. mostly families and a lot of unaccompanied teens and minors. the sort of thing we're seeing out here every single day. back here live we linked up with a woman a couple of nights ago. the founder of women fighting for america. a group that throughout the border crisis goes to different parts of the border and works with law enforcement. they have an incredibly sophisticated drone worth tens of thousands of dollars that has every gadget you can imagine and help track down runners. look at the video we shot with them in la jolla the other night. didn't take long to find runners. it has thermal imaging. 5 to 6 guys zipping through the brush after swimming across the
7:10 am
rio grande. with all the perks it has we can see them like it was daylight. see them running through the brush. the drone has gps coordinates. that group relayed the coordinates to border patrol and horse back agents and agents on foot immediately got to that area. surrounded those migrants. some tried to swim back to mexico. every one of them ended up being apprehended with the help of the drone team. we talked about why she is doing it. she is a mom with two kids and with all the fentanyl flowing across the border she wants to help any way she can. >> drug trafficking has gone up over 450 something percent. that's a lot of drugs coming and flooding into our streets. as a mother of two young adult boys, that hits me really hard at home. this is coming to your streets. this is in your neighborhood. the drugs don't just stay at the border. within 42 to 72 hours they're in cities all across the united
7:11 am
states. >> we mentioned all those family units who show up in la jolla turning themselves in. they believe they have a chance at being released into country and right to believe that. just yesterday mayorkas told the senate judiciary committee during fiscal year 2021, 350,000 illegal immigrants were released into the united states. he also told that committee if he were to grade himself he would give himself an a for effort during this border crisis. send it back to you. >> bill: something else. we watched it. thank you for hanging in there. great information in la joya, texas. you talk about the overdoses of fentanyl. crossing the a.p. wire get this out of atlanta. u.s. health officials say for the first time 100,000 americans have died of a drug overdose in one year. >> dana: many of those are fentanyl poisoning. >> bill: sure is. you don't know what's in it. it only takes one. >> dana: bill spoke to the
7:12 am
woman saying it is coming to your neighborhood. the drugs go all over the country within 48 hours. >> bill: you think how long and tried to get it out of our communities and it's back. >> dana: agents were directed to use counter terrorism measures to track parents critical of their school boards. >> what you see is that they are drawing up lists of crimes. saying is there any crime that we could go after these parents for? anything we could prosecute them for? federal crimes we're talking about. why is the patriot act being used against parents? >> dana: is this part of a widespread attempt to silence parents? martha maccallum will join us in a bit. >> bill: also nearly 300 americans stranded in afghanistan under taliban rule as president biden abandoned them for good. we will put that question fora general. >> dana: the president on the road in michigan touting the
7:13 am
infrastructure plan. michigan congresswoman debbie dingle joins us next. bigger kia swimming pool for the grandkids, or a backyard deck. your va home loan benefit and the newday 100 va loan make it possible. by borrowing up to 100% of your home's value you can take out up to $60,000 or more. with home values at all time highs, now's the time to call. i brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein. those who tried me felt more energy in just two weeks!

>> dana: president biden visiting the a gm electric vehicle plant in michigan to tout his infrastructure plan and a future without fossil fuel. it comes as the price of gas is skyrocketing. the president argued the social spending bill would stem the cost on everyday goods but not everyone is buying that. jeff paul is live in detroit with the latest. hi, jeff. >> dana, in the short term democratic senators like chuck schumer want the biden administration to tap into oil reserves to help lower the cost of gasoline. in the long term president biden believes the future of lowering energy costs kind of stems from places like this.
7:19 am
this gm factory, general motors factory in detroit. one of their factory zero assembly plants which is a big part of gm's future fleet of electric vehicles. without the proper infrastructure to charge the vehicles hitting the roads it makes it tough for the technology to prosper. he is here to celebrate that his bill installs 500,000 charging stations across the country. the idea is to have a frequent amount of charging stations like we see with gas stations. the president the day before was in new hampshire talking about how the investment in things like charging stations, new roads and other elements of infrastructure will only help families in the long run. >> president biden: it will lower costs for you and your family. we'll start by replacing 100% of the lead water pipes in the
7:20 am
united states. >> president biden is set to arrive here in detroit later today. he will tour this factory right here, the factory zero-g m assembly plant and reportedly set to test drive one of the new 2022 gmc hummer pickup trucks and talk with some workers. >> dana: hummer pickup truck. >> bill: get us two, will you, jeff? thank you. while the president is in michigan speaker pelosi is in d.c. pushing for a vote on the spending bill. the cbo won't offer a final price tag until friday. build back better is the last of a long list of trillions of dollars over the last 18 months. if the bill is past we look at a total of 8.6 trillion. >> dana: you had to swallow. that's a lot of money.
7:21 am
>> bill: i want to bring in debbie dingle, michigan congresswoman. cbo is the big headline on friday if it comes out. this as the white house deputy press secretary on the whole cbo score. roll it and we'll listen. >> there has been wide agreement on the part of everyone involved that cbo does not have experience analyzing revenue amounts gained by cracking down on wealthy tax cheats taking advantage of every honest tax. >> bill: if he is right i don't know what the number is. how will we get around that? >> well good morning to both of you. look, here is the reality. i really think we've made very real strides. we are getting ready to go into thanksgiving week next week. remember a year ago we couldn't
7:22 am
be with our families and friend and scared to death. we passed the american recovery plan. got shots in people's arms. gave people support when they were scared. this week we signed the infrastructure bill. we need that bill. democratic and republican presidents have tried for decade to get money to fix our roads and our bridges and yes, the president is going. i'm excited to welcome him back and see him drive a truck. i'm happy. the american people realize electric vehicles still have the performance of an internal combustion engine, cost less, same performance. clean up the economy. we've avoeded the drama of capitol hill that i'm proud of. ceo and auto workers and others and environmentalists came together and talked about concerns and together said we have to transform the future
7:23 am
and that's what we'll celebrate today. >> dana: going forward it feels to me there is a lot of drama on capitol hill on both sides within both parties. just to be clear. the congressional budget office considered nonpartisan a thorn in the sides of most presidents, i know that. the white house is suggesting this cbo does not have experience to be able to give a correct score. the score matters a lot. house moderates and senator joe manchin looking at it closely and it could stall build back better. with your experience do you think cbo is qualified and experienced enough to make this call? >> you know, i've worked with people that have headed the congressional budget office. they've been wrong and right. i always say it's a snapshot in time and gives you guidelines. a lot of other economists and institutions doing studies. i know the moderates want to see what they'll be told about this and they have oh right to
7:24 am
expect that and make their decisions. economists that we respect who say the bill will be paid for. what i know we need the programs that are in. the infrastructure bill and build back better. it is paid for. we are increasing taxes. not on anybody who is making $400,000 or less but on those that aren't paying their fair share right now. our tax code lets corporations locate overseas and not pay taxes. how many major corporations do we have not paying anything? we'll pay for it by going after people that should be paying their fair share. >> bill: one last question. there was i guess you call a virtual chat with president xi of china the other day that lasted three hours. some accounts 3 1/2 hours. but yet the president did not bring up the question about the origins of covid. are you disappointed by that? >> look, i want to know what happened how did covid get there.
7:25 am
i'm one of those people that wondered what happened inside the lab. i don't know if a conversation again the two would have gotten any answers. i hope we don't give up trying to find answers to that question. >> dana: congressman debbie dingle. you have your hands full and a presidential visit to deal with. >> happy thank giving. >> dana: thank you. some fentanyl dealers are facing murder charges if drugs they sell result in the death of others, the growing trend ahead. china's military -- retired admiral william mcraven joins us and the patriots awards are tonight at 8:00 p.m. eastern on fox nation.com.

1/2 months after the chaotic u.s. troop withdrawal. a group of organizations are slamming the state department for not doing enough to help. retired four star admiral william mcraven joins us now. i want to read one quote from a marine that works for team america. the state department doing enough isn't enough. we need whole of government solutions and the international community to step up and need it quickly. i'm sure i hear from some of these veterans trying to help get people here. >> one, i agree need a whole government approach and international approach to dealing with the issue in afghanistan and of course watching it from afar it was tragic. the 13 american lives lost, 170 or so afghans. i don't think anybody would think the evacuation went well. i would offer to you when you take a look at what the 82nd airborne did when they got on the ground it will go down as one of the great operations in the history of the american

7:37 am
feet under them in terms of the national security approach. i applaud them for coming together to discuss this. we probably didn't make progress but dialogue is a good start. we've had a strategic ambiguity with our discussions with china. the president let the cat out of the bag the other day when he said we would defend taiwan. that hasn't been our policy but of course the white house back tracked on that a little bit but i think the dialogue is good. >> dana: let's go to your book. you wrote a book called make your bed based on a commencement speech you did on "the new york times" best sellers list. i think that book is fabulous. great christmas present and graduation present. this one, though, this is i got to get this for people. make your bed with skipper the seal is a children's book. did you ever think you would have a book like this? >> the illustrator did a remarkable job. as a parent growing up i loved reading to my kids.

hello to you. here is what jordan said. call for number two. merrick garland testified the f.b.i. wasn't targeting parents. we now know they are tagging parents they consider threatening. the attorney general has some explaining to do. that's where we are now. >> this does not sit well with parents who have expressed their opinions on these school boards. i think the idea when you look at all the threats we confront in the world. you look at what's going on with fentanyl and the other issues, why isn't there more focus about that? at the d.o.j.? why isn't being articulated? these parents feel like they have ever right to stand in front of their school board and express their feelings about what is being taught in the schools and they don't understand. obviously when you step over the line you bring in local law enforcement. that's what they are there for and what should happen. to have the f.b.i. spending its precious time on this issue
7:46 am
does not seem -- based on the research they put together. when you look at the threats. disruptive at a school board meeting. this does not rise to the level of national emergency. >> dana: f.b.i. put out a new statement. a tag is a tool to track information for review and reporting. the creation of a threat tag in no way changes the longstanding requirement for opening an investigation nor represent a shift in how the f.b.i. prioritizes threat. they have used tags to track everything from drug trafficking to human trafficking. and they said let's put the statement out. are we comparing them to drug and human traffickers? >> this chills speech. people look at that statement from the f.b.i. and say oh i'm supposed to feel better because i'm being treated like a potential drug or human trafficker because i want to speak my mind at the school board meeting? they need to move out of this
7:47 am
realm. most parents want there to be less focus on politics and social issues in school. this is what's lost here. the problem is we need to -- teachers need to carry out their mission and make sure we as a nation are excelling in math and science and english and subjects. we're not right now, right? the focus needs to be -- when i was a kid i had no idea in grammar school or middle school or even high school what my teachers' political laention were. no child in this country should be able to discern their teacher's political leanings. you should always leave that at home as a teacher. you are there to teach. what you think and want to protest about should be left at home. no child should be able to discern the political leanings of their teacher and this is where we've gone. >> bill: it will still be out there. chip roy had a rally yesterday. call for number five, guys.
7:48 am
roll it >> children are our responsibility as parents. we should be in control of our schools and that's why right now the most important thing we can be doing is taking back our school boards. >> dana: it will be an issue in the 2022 election. >> absolutely. there was a speech that former president trump gave in september of 2020 on patriotic education that raised a lot of the issues that we have seen really bubble up since then and i remember noting that speech right in the middle of the heat of the election season and he talked about it as a big issue he wanted to talk about in the second term which did not happen. but i think this becomes a very big issue in the country and i think when you talk about it's interesting to me when you listen to people who grew up in communist china and who felt and saw things like school names being changed and statues
7:49 am
brought down. when those things happened there was a shift happening in our society but weren't necessarily attune to what it meant. >> bill: hold that thought. loudon county is the epicenter. communist governments. a chinese mother speaking about that exact thing. watch. >> parents are here today to say no. no, we do not want government to be co-parents to our children. no we don't want the indoctrination. no we don't want marxist and communist ideology to hijack our schools. no, we are not going to give up our children to the government. >> dana: she knows what she is talking about. >> thanks for having that ready. ideology is not what education is about. that's the point she is making. when ideology becomes part of education you lose the freedom
7:50 am
as parents at home. that's the realm of parents and churches. let's be number one in math and science. wouldn't that be a great national goal? >> dana: one of glenn youngkin's biggest lines. bringing advanced math. >> instead they are talking about dumbing it down so everyone is the same. protecting people's feelings is not the goal of education. it is to make sure we have the smartest young people being raised in this country to compete on a national and global level. >> dana: we'll see you at 3:00 for "the story". a man accused of attacking of a nypd officer was released. we're heading to hollywood, florida for the patriot awards. watch them on fox nation at 8:00 p.m. eastern.

7:58 am
seriously? a sentiment echoed by bill deblasio. >> i am absolutely appalled and i do share his frustration. and commissioner shea and i said from the beginning there is a lot of good in the bail reform bill and also things that need to be fixed. this is something i'll be talking about. >> bail reform in new york remains controversial after changes in the law. it resulted in doing away with bail for some minor offenses. in this case, though, it appears that thompson was eligible for bail but the decision was made in this case apparently that it was not going to be required. >> bill: we'll watch these stories. >> dana: now you have a better reason to deck the halls. a new study find people who put up their christmas decorations

>> bill: he was looking for a higher power. >> dana: let me -- save me. he is quite resourceful. they may want to spare him this year, don't you think? >> that would be a good idea. >> i'm going straight to bed. i'll be 50% better by tomorrow. >> dana: here is harris faulkner. >> harris: breaking news as we have entered day two of jury deliberations in the kyle rittenhouse trial. people in the city of kenosha are bracing for what could come next after the verdict is read. i'm harris faulkner. you are in "the faulkner focus". that jury is deciding whether 18-year-old kyle rittenhouse will face hard time for killing two men and injuring a third during chaos and violent protests that unfolded in kenosha, wisconsin last summer. the rioting was on the heels of the police shooting of jacob black. rittenhouse claims what he
