was the fact that he got his car broken into 15 times his problem alone. he is a comedian but you've got a low-quality life standard. benjamin: the concept that we just have to learn to live with it, nothing we can do about rising crime, not like we can put more police on the streets or make the consequences harder, we will just live with it because you know whose fault it is, probably our fault. i shouldn't to lift my car parked there. we are seeing the trends all across - carley: it is not just seth rogen but many people that are very wealthy the don't have to worry if their car gets broken into because they can afford it but someone making minimum wage and their car gets stolen that is a life shattering moment for them and then you remember cynthia nixon when she brushed

every corporation across every industry got together and said if we raise prices and blame inflation departs going to catch on. people know what is going on with this but you see it in the twitter responses, federal reserve, federal government put money into the system, the supply-chain issue which means fewer goods causes inflation. >> a desperate attempt to blame anyone but the administration, look anywhere but the administration. that is 50% in gas prices, they see things to the energy secretary, laughed, what can she do about high energy prices and she said i wish i had a magic wand so i could wave it and change it, you do, it is called energy independence. if you had energy independence you could control the prices but they don't have that anymore so you flood the market with billions and billions, if build back better get through it will lead to inflation but it is not
the administration. carley: it is big turkey and she wants the poultry industry to get investigated for rising prices on turkeys. and i'm not worried about the big corporations that can afford ships to alleviate the supply train crisis but the mom and pop shops, small businesses, one restaurant owner said during the pandemic, the height of the pandemic things were easier on him they are now. benjamin: tomorrow a small business saturday, go help your local stores, they need right now. air travel at the moment hid a post covid record, 2.3 million people taking to the skies ahead of thanksgiving. that is according to the tsa who said was the busiest day since march of 2020. is more than double the number

screwed up everything they have touched. benjamin: national security expert robert charles is on deck to discuss the modulo limo claiming most of the evacuees were unfettered. >> doctor janette nesheiwat, joe concha and jack brewer live for the next two hours of "fox and friends first". surprise! it's a new buick. you got me new buick? oh! and there are more gifts inside. wow! i don't even know what to open first. how about this? you got me the head up display. heated steering wheel. it's a massaging seat. do you love it? okay okay, what next? watch this, mom. alexa, turn on holiday lights. this year, give the gift of technology in every buick s(you)v.

the shocking memo by senate republicans is almost none of the 82,000 people are lifted from kabul in august redheaded. >> former naval until officer robert charles. do we have this congressional memo? 82,000 were airlifted out of kabul and none of them were fitted. explain what that means, not being vetted and how much of a national security threat this poses. >> very surprising, shocking data point because we are talking of the 82,000, roughly 73,000 were non-american citizens, not permanent residents, 73,000 plus that you should have been vetting and it takes time. part of the problem what it really means is we have a double
tragedy. we left americans and visa holders and permanent residents and employees of the embassy in afghanistan and pulled out 73,000 we had no basis for pulling out. the realities you go through databases and terrorism databases, biometrics but in the end looking for new terrorists, new potential problems, not likely to show up on the database and that's the problem. when we that i managed all the vetting related to the iraq police force. when i was at state and we did a similar thing in afghanistan and you have to go through serious cross-examination process and one of the problems is these folks thing to be wandering off and we have not vetted them. the bottom line is we have to be right 100% of the time of the bad guys only have to be right one% of the time and that means
we need to work harder at letting these folks before we let them out into society. benjamin: tens of thousands of allies were left behind when tens of thousands we don't know who were flown out. i want to play something president biden said in august. >> planes taking off from kabul are not flying directly to the united states. they are man to get us military bases and training centers around the world. these sites we are conducting thorough scrutiny, security screening, for anyone who's not a us citizen for unlawful permanent residence. benjamin: i don't understand what is going on. he said everyone was being that it, they stop in a third country, we learned that is not the case. would he not have known what is going on or did they just ignore protocol? >> wishful thinking doesn't get
you far when it comes to national security and that is what we heard. it is a shame, a continuing rolling tragedy. i would challenge the president at a press conference to explain what vetting is. having done a lot but i don't think he understands what it is. it is a very concrete, sometimes a labyrinth process where you have to go back and check the contact points these people give you. we are talking the idea of going back and crosschecking, the only thing we can do is identify whether they made american citizens work with state department personnel and one of the saddest parts of the story the media is not telling is as of 3 weeks ago we still had 38,000 american people left in
the country including permanent residents, those who were relatives of those american citizens who did get out and if you continue to ignore it, the tragedy continues to roll. i would make this a first priority as i don't see them doing that. carley: your making a point what the administration sees as vetting. they say we did background checks but the traditional definition of vetting is doing the interview, making sure people are who they say they are. some afghanistans told the department of homeland security they didn't have id with them, didn't want the taliban and to see who they were at checkpoints but according to the washington examiner article us officials created new records for afghans based on the individual claims. dhs said we didn't need their id. everything is okay, don't worry about it. is everything okay?
>> you are saying i to dodge the raindrops and make it to the other side. i don't think everything is okay. we don't have indications of any concrete problems. you have people trying to get into this country in multiple ways with that extraction, and we do not know what their intentions were or what their intentions are now or where they came from and taking someone's word for it doesn't do the trip. >> the flood of people on those planes, they were desperate and they don't mean harm to this country as well. benjamin: if i was the taliban and i would put those people on
those planes. one person, national security threat. the time is 24 minutes after the hour. we are seeing record inflation, supply-chain crisis, businesses worried about keeping doors open. vice president harris, $500. carley: looking ahead to small business saturday, talk about how important tomorrow is for their bottom line.
including $150 on a frying pan. this is the cost of the average american thanksgiving dinner for a family of 10 increased over 14% from last year's average. carley: tomorrow small business saturday when you can really give local businesses in your community a big boost, two business offices join me to discuss why is this serious shopping event is more important than ever. you own four restaurants in new jersey. how are things going and how much those small business saturday mean to you? >> thanks for having me again. i have four restaurants in jersey shore, 150 employees, last year was difficult, which makes this black friday and small business saturday as important as ever. mainstreet usa is reeling from covid 19, small business makes up 60% of the economy, the backbone of america.
my business not only struggling with the debt we have incurred in the past 20 months the dealing with supply issues, inflation, cost increases across the board which makes it harder to operate and continues to decrease profit margins. small business america needs a lot of help. jillian: you live in seattle, thank you. tell us about your business and what small business means to you. >> donating those prices. they need your support in washington state. and they don't -- small business saturday. and fun part about that and the festivals we count on for
revenue said they are not sure they are having them because of local mandates, however takes that they don't know what is going to happen. >> everything is so interconnected. and and and this is the phrase america was back. >> not for small business usa. and the local clothing story tells their horror story. and people support their local
communities, so many businesses close during the pandemic, they get out and support it. i was on this panel last year, he said it best. small business every day. carley: small business every day. your restaurants and businesses, make the communities what they are. best of luck. happy thanksgiving. benjamin: the national school board association is charging $200 in equity symposium on creating faith-based schools. joanna lowman will cover the importance of lgbt q courses for the school curriculum and

benjamin: an emergency meeting to discuss the new have only mutated covid very into south africa reported to be highly contagious even for young people. what do americans need to know? doctor janette nesheiwat joins me. i have a sinking feeling, here we go again. people say this new variant is the worst ever, a supermutant, vaccines 40% less effective against it and the dow futures have dropped 700 points in response to this new variant called to be 11529. how concerned should we be? >> it is of concern. this new variant was first identified in botswana, south africa and the reason scientists -- there is a sudden massive outbreak of covid cases in the south african countries so that is why they discovered this new variant and the concern is it
has over 30 mutations in the spike protein which means it may even aid the vaccine which means the vaccines may not be as effective. monoclonal antibodies may not be as effective. the best thing we can do as scientists and doctors in the world health organization, trying to gather more information about this variant is vaccinated yourself, protect yourself, where your mask indoors in crowded areas especially if you are not fully vaccinated as we gather information on this variant. flights because they are concerned about this. new who guidance of vaccinated people, even if you are vaccinated continues to take precautions to prevent becoming infected yourself and affecting someone else who could die. that means wearing a mask, maintaining distance, avoiding crowds, meeting others outside if you can or in a well
ventilated space. it feels like a step back. the messaging, vaccination is your path to freedom but it doesn't appear that way. we were told one vaccine, 90% efficacy, then 3 vaccines and the booster, the message should be vaccination needs to freedom, should it not? >> absolutely. i understand how this can be frustrating but a couple things we are dealing with. delta is a lot more contagious and spreads more readily than other variants. than this cold weather we are dealing with a lot of people are gathering indoors and seeing an increase in the number of covid cases with the cdc project an increase in the next four weeks in the number of hospitalizations and deaths because of the cold weather and we know now that antibody levels decline over time. after six months the cdc recommends getting a booster because we know the vaccine protection level goes down but if you get the booster your
protectable spikes up. use common sense precautions. if you are high risk or suffer copd or emphysema or diabetes or cystic fibrosis and are in a public area and indoors and it is crowded, take the extra step to protect yourself and so we get through the cold weather holiday. benjamin: this debate about children and the vaccine, a new study says an vaccinated kids, 3% higher chance of catching covid than vaccinated adults. i wonder why the focus on having kids vaccinated particularly when they are suffering in regards to children being forced to eat outside in the cold in some new york schools potentially at risk of catching cold and other issues, mental health, vaccines being missed. isn't it time to say children can get back into the classroom,
put aside restrictions on kids? 3% more likely than fully vaccinated adults? >> kids back in class should be our top priority. my focus remains on vaccinating the adults and 471 million americans eligible to be vaccinated. children are extremely low risk of severe infection and severe illness. we did see an increase in 32% of children who developed covid, do make up a quarter right now so they can get sick and spread the virus but the risk of severe illness is low. if you have a child at high risk that has an underlying medical condition, something to talk to your pediatrician about getting vaccinated but otherwise we focus on the older population at higher risk of severe illness and complication. benjamin: thank you for joining us.

lieutenant general jim laughter. happy thanksgiving. are you worried kids may not get toys this year, what challenges are you facing? >> best way to answer this is to say marines always accomplish the mission as we will make sure the less fortunate children of our nation will not go without this year. just like last year in the middle of the pandemic we ensured we were able to distribute toys and books to less fortunate children and despite the pandemic had one of the best years reaching 7.4 million children. carley: last year it was covid that was the concern, this year is the economy. are you noticing a drop off in donations and when it comes to
the supply chain, toys that people have ordered that may not come in on time. >> of course. we rely heavily on the generosity of the american public both in monetary donations and dropping a toy or book into one of our collection boxes. you see in the local communities or businesses. our vendors told us there would be a problem. to get ahead of that, to mitigate that, we used historical data and started purchasing toys, we have the ability now to push those toys as supplementals in the event our collections are down. right now we are not seeing that, as many as we did last year. >> you were able to do that because of monetary donations.
donating a physical toy, they accept that online. >> a virtual toy box on the website that people can go in, with a toy of the portugal toy box. >> how many? >> on average 7 million last year, one of our best years ever on record at 7.4 million. i said to keep chipping away at that. we know by statistical data that teen million children that are at or below the poverty level. right now we are hitting half of them. we want to reach as many as we can. we will stay at this until we reach 15 million.
