9:01 am
jeff: while it's a much different situation of the pacific nation in tonga, here in california near the coast and other states like hawaii and alaska were under tsunami advisory from the undersea volcano, we will 1 to 2-foot waves. also worth noting likely dangerous rift current. it's a terrible day to be in the water whether that's swimming, surfing or boating. this how it all started massive undersea volcano erupting near tonga and that sent large waves crashing undershore. tonga's king was reportedly evacuated after tsunami funded the capital. beyond tonga, parts of japan are under tsunami warnings and advisories have been issued for
9:02 am
parts of new zealand. here advisories on the west coast, alaska, hawaii. so far no damage. anita: tsunami is in effect across the west coast as you heard jeff say, alaska and hawaii after underwater volcano erupted near the pacific nation tonga, meteorologist adam klotz has the latest in the weather center. adam, big activity this weekend. adam: definitely from this to the weather that's impacting, i will talk about that in just a minute but beginning with advisories that you talk about. you see them in the orange stretching their way up and down the entire western coast tsunami advisory. not a warning. we have seen that so far. this is what happened this morning earlier in hawaii maybe as high as 3 feet which is
9:03 am
higher than you typically see in the areas but not really massive waves and when you get to the coast coast, a lot of the leading edges have taken place. arrival times throughout the morning. most recent 8:50 a.m. the initial push of water for a lot of places has been there and you will continue to see choppy conditions and rift currents that make water dangerous to get into after arrival times have kind of been there and past. in the weather world across the country what we are looking at frigid air for interior new england, windchill alerts, warnings in the areas as the temperatures feel like when you step outside a whole lot of places down to the negatives, negative 10, negative 16, negative 22 degrees. really frigid out there and that's all ahead of a system that's going to be sweeping across the country here really throughout the entire weekend into monday. still heavy snow in portions of the plane. on the leading edge it's
9:04 am
currently on the rain. that's going to turn to icy situation across the southeast, you will start to see the pinks and that's when you're talking more of an ice situation from atlanta stretching to charlotte areas where they're not necessarily prepared for some of the big weather. here is your future track and you can kind of pay attention to the time stamp in the corner, you can see the pink and that's when you talk about a whole lot of ice, sunday is the time that we will be paying attention to that. no surprise here. just a massive winter weather alerts, watches, warnings from the ice, from the snow and freezing rain that folks will be dealing with from now running all the way to monday morning. anita: it is 25 degrees and very chilly outside of the studio in dc, everybody needs to bundle up. thank you so much adam klotz for that. griff. griff: the other big story we are watching republican glenn youngkin is set to be sworn in as virginia's 74th governor in a
9:05 am
few democrats. a seat democrats have held for nearly a decade. we will bring that event to you live meanwhile alexandria hoff live on the ground in virginia witnessing all of the history, hi, alex. alex: hi, griff, history is certainly being made in several different ways. inauguration ceremony is ready to kick off any minute and we expect swearing in to take a few more minutes after that. at that point governor ralph northam would have passed the seat to glenn youngkin. you'll remember it was back in november that youngkin did what no republican did in the past years. it was a key off yore race watched closely across the country as indicatation of voter sentiment, education being top
9:06 am
issue there. he's going the address parents directly. he wants to see them have a greater say in curriculum and for their kids to be in school 5 days a week. among a series of executive orders that are expected, youngkin actually plans to reverse the mask requirement for school children. we want to back here now as ceremony is about to take off. history will be made with lieutenant governor being sworn in, the first black woman to hold that position. so enthusiasm that we saw in the campaign trail is echoing here as virginia prepares to swear in its 74th governor. griff: attorney general, first hispanic elected statewide. we will check back with you, alex, a little bit later. anita. anita: as we wait for that we will talk about how it's been a very challenging week for biden administration. the president is set to give a rare press conference on wednesday, first one in months.
9:07 am
lucas tomlinson joins us live with the latest from wilmington, delaware where the president is spending the weekend, hi, lucas. lucas: good afternoon, anita. it's been a disaster. >> there's a lot of talk about disappointments and things that we haven't gotten done. we will get a lot of them done, i might add. lucas: this week u.s. inflation hitting pastest pace in nearly 4 decades. prices for household goods have seen 7% spike including 50% increase in gas prices and americans feeling at the pump and 20% jump at the grocery store from meat, egg and at the white house jen psaki says nobody saw this coming. >> we are getting out of a
9:08 am
pandemic at a rate that anybody thought it would happen. lucas: talks with russia, failing to stop tensions at the border. speech in georgia fail today give voting rights passed and biden comparing opponents as segregationists and third week by the president failed to persuade lawmakers to eliminate filibuster and approval rating falling 33% america. and after withdrawal of afghanistan. half of the country blames the president not for the pandemic but -- not just the pandemic but policies for making things worse. one gop senator says there's a silver lining to this week. >> it's been a very bad week for joe biden. it's a good week for the american people. lucas: next week marks president
9:09 am
biden's first year in office as you mentioned he's marking that with a press conference at 4:00 p.m. on wednesday. anita. anita: lucas live in will ming , delaware. griff: noel, kristin, thanks for joining us on saturday. we will pick up after we watched the governor of virginia take over. first let's address the week that lucas tomlinson was talking about. the horrible, terrible very bad no good week for president biden. i think really as we almost mark one year in office, he has got to hit the reset button, you can see the list, everything not just the supreme court and the failure of the votes act and stacey abrams not showing up for the speech in georgia which absolutely bombed. inflation hits four decade high
9:10 am
and hillary clinton's name being included. vice president harris being mocked for nbc interview and the list goes on and on. so my question to you, noel, let's start with you, what does this week mean? is it just a rough spot hit bottom and start to rise again or is this real trouble for the president's administration? >> i think it's a real bad deal for the president, for his administration, not only that, but i mean, you've got to think about our foreign adversaries watching all of this play out because if you really think about it, joe biden, think about his history. he was a united states senator for many, many years, then he became vice president and now he's president. he could not even rein in two united states senators, joe manchin and kyrsten sinema to get on board to pass some of his legislation. this is really bad and it shows weak leadership. so i think that, you know, a lot
9:11 am
of people are taking that into account and as for achieving anything, this week was horrible, you're totally right about that, but look at the entire year. so i think, you know, his first year is getting off to a horrible start and the question is where do they go from here if they can't do any of the things that they wanted to do, then what does he do in the next couple of? griff: yeah, christian, do you want to answer that question, what does the president need to do? >> well, first, the gop senator that said a bad day for any president is a good day for the american people. i just find up horrid. that's just partisan politics. i would say that you have to look at it -- the president has a very slim majority and looking back we are saying his whole year has been a failure.
9:12 am
i mean, i can't -- i just don't agree with that. you have there shall there are presidents going back, you know, decades who have been trying to get bipartisan infrastructure done. we did that. he did that. i mean, we gloss over it a lot of times because there are a lot of things that we are still working on that he's still trying to do. that's a major accomplishment and we should acknowledge that. covid, i mean, this is something -- he doesn't -- he's having to deal with the variant that's spreading rampant through our communities, you know, and this is something that -- he's increasing testing. this is a very difficult times and there's a lot of accomplishments that he's had. that's where you go from here, you build on the bipartisan bill that he's passed or he's worked with congress to pass and work with both sides of the aisle to get stuff done. anita: okay, ladies, i want to go back to the speech that
9:13 am
president biden made in georgia this past week. a lot of people called it very divisive and i want to bring up now a quote from author peggy neunen from an article of a couple of days ago. by the end of the speech he looked like a man operating a part from the american conversation not at its center. this can be pay tale to a presidency. nicole, let me have you react to that first, peggy nuenen has been commenting on presidents for decades now. what did you make of her article and her quote? >> well, you know, first of all, she -- she nailed it and second of all, this was not a speech that was a come together speech and i think right you know specially americans, look at the approval rate in the 30's. that was not the best speech of all and i think she called it out. anita: i'm sorry i called you
9:14 am
nicole, noel. >> that's okay. anita: kristin, let me have you respond to that. what did you think about what peggy neunen said. she didn't paint a great picture on where the biden presidency is going after the speech. >> well, everybody has their -- noel was talking about the president's speech and they will have their thoughts about it and certainly have been vocal but i think that, you know, having a conversation about and using the president using the bully pulpit to talk about voting rights in the country is very important and to do it in georgia and to speak to the voters. i mean, it's a conversation that is obviously overly politicized and, you know, there are things that we need to do to make sure that -- that everybody has the opportunity to -- to -- to vote and to, you know, express their
9:15 am
views. that's what democracy is and the president elevated that issue and obviously you will get a lot of reactions to that. griff: ladies, hold for me one second, i just want to dip into our cameras in richmond, glenn youngkin arriving to his inauguration. you can see gathering there on the steps of the virginia capital and remarks we expect to hear shortly that have been released to the press. we expect youngkin to say, my fellow virginians, the spirit of virginia is alive and well and together we will strengthen it. that is certainly something yet to be seen whether or not he can bring very partisan sentiments together across the aisle there in virginia, we will bring you his speech obviously. now the attorney general will be sworn in first, then the lieutenant governor then that man right there will become virginia's 74th governor. he ran on really what he called the party of parents, uniting
9:16 am
behind parents in school issues, a little bit of different tact. he threatened the needle on how to handle the trump support, getting his endorsement vocally acknowledging and thanking the former president for endorsement but was standing having donald trump come to virginia because it was viewed as possibly a divisive thing. we will bring you more on that as we get it. now let's go back. i want to ask you, noel, what do you think we will hear from glenn youngkin. what does he need to say, obviously having really got this ground swell of support because he didn't just win with republicans in that purple state of the common wealth of virginia. he got some democrats to cross over. that's why he will be inaugurated. what does he need to say today? >> i think that what he needs to say is what he has continued to say when he was campaigning. he is for the children, he is
9:17 am
for participants rights with the children and i think that resonated with people that vote. look this issue, education and your children, this is not even a republican-democrat deal. people will switch a party if it benefits their children. they put their children before parties and i think that what he did was brilliant. one of the things that he is promising to do is to increase teachers' pay, public teachers' pay. this is brilliant because while he was against the critical race theory, he is turning around and increasing the teachers' pay. this is going to resonate well with teachers so they are going to be on board. some of the things that he's wanting to do and he's going to do, i think, are going to be great for the state and great for both republicans that voted for him and the cross-over democrats that did and a lot of republicans are looking to him because this guy won, he's a political outsider and he won
9:18 am
basically on local issues and are really looking to see how he's going to govern and people are very excited about this guy. griff: you're looking now live at pastor calvina duncan giving giveinvocation before the swearg in begins. >> i'm not in the same party as him but i take the same view regardless of whether it's the president or governor. he ran a good campaign, that's very clear. once you're elected, though, your job is to bring everybody together. you represent the democrats, you represent the republicans, you're working for everybody in the state of virginia regardless of the party. so i think everybody should be rooting for him to do well, to raise teacher pay certainly.
9:19 am
but that is going to take a state like virginia where you do have a lot of fellow democratic support, it's going to take reaching across the aisle and governors are notorious in a good way for being practical and in ways that sometimes officials in washington are not and working with both parties to get things done. i certainly hope that he's willing to work across the aisle and move that state forward. anita: let me jump for just a moment. he beat former governor terry mcauliffe, what lessons with a democratic party takeaway from glenn youngkin's victory, he's a first-time candidate, what
9:20 am
message does the party take from this? >> you know, the former president trump, you can't run a campaign against -- just against him anymore. i think that you need to -- candidates all over the country need to look forward the midterms and talk about local issues. talk about things that, you know, that affected people in your district, in your state and that really resonate with people and going back to just the very basic, the things that affect, jobs, health care, there are certainly things that are in this build back better act that people would want. child tax credit and things like that, go local, talk to the people, don't run against -- don't run against former president trump on his own. he's not here anymore. you've got to talk to the people. you have to say things that resonate and have a vision for moving forward. griff: noel, let me ask you, do
9:21 am
you think as long as we are talking about mcauliffe that it was that moment in the debate where mcauliffe said to the effect that parents probably really shouldn't have much input over what is taught to kids in their school. i think we may have that soundbite. let me just air that for you and get your reaction. if this was an important moment that may have made or break it for mcauliffe. >> i'm not going to let parents come in to schools and make their own decisions. so i stopped a bill that i don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach. griff: noel, was that the moment? >> that did it. i mean, to me that was basically saying that the parents have no rights and i don't care if you're democrat or republican, that reaches across party lines and basically says that as a
9:22 am
parent you're irrelevant. that was a long move to make in my opinion and one of the things that glenn youngkin did that i think was really refreshing, he said he was going to bring humility back to the office. i love that because a lot of politicians especially the old guard, you know, they -- they -- it's the same old, same-old business as usual and i really love the fact that glenn youngkin, outsider, he was going to bring to the office, beautiful. anita: he had his day one plan on his website forever. i want to put up bullet points and we can talk about this. he wants to on day one cut regulations and reduce taxes, ban critical race theory which was such a big part of campaign, investing teachers and schools and empower parents with real which i says and also wants to
9:23 am
institute peacher pay races and defund law enforcement funding and protect constitutional rights. let's talk about this and how the bullet points may play out with the voters in virginia and kristin, let's start with you, what about his platform don't you like? >> i think in theory a lot of things people want to feel safe -- drawing effective police force and things to be reformed about it. everybody wants to see our teachers paid more. so, you know, you have -- he has a platform and when you get into the details and you need to work with legislature in getting these things done. i think as so long -- he can
9:24 am
move forward in a practical way. i'm from texas and i remember when george w. bush was the governor and we had a democratic speaker of the house and they -- they didn't agree and they fought in public sometimes but they got together and they got things done in the state, and so, yes, on the face of it, good ideas there, but, you know, let's get into the -- the nitty gritty and actually get things done and i think that, you know, he's got -- he's got to work to get it done, hopefully he can. anita: noel, what kind of challenge will he have with the virginia state house there in trying to get initiatives done? >> well, you know, he may have some challenges but i will tell you, he's coming in pretty much as political outsider so he doesn't really have a political record and if you'll remember his background was from carlisle which is, you know, a financial
9:25 am
fund so i think that that is refreshing, so the fact that he's not been a long-time politician with any kind of a record, i think, it's going to work to his advantage to reach across the aisle and get good and thoughtful policy done. griff: kristin, let me ask you about as anita was talking about day one goals. one of the things that youngkin intends to do is to go after the vaxx mandate, obviously the supreme court ruled against the president's one on large businesses but youngkin looks like he's going to go after the vaxx mandate on government workers. is that a good idea or bad idea as far as the democratic strategy perspective? >> not as a democratic strategist but a person that listens to the health experts. i mean, i have a company. we have a vaccine mandate aside
9:26 am
from certain exemptions. i don't quite understand the motivation, politicization of covid and -- and repealing a mask mandate particularly right now. i mean, wear a mask for the next month. i mean, i had covid over the holidays but i don't understand the -- day one going after things that actually protect public health. i don't see it as a political issue. i know that some people are making it a political issue and it's very unfortunate. people are getting sick and our hospitals are being overwhelmed. shouldn't be political. wear a mask for the next month and get a vaccine. griff: if you're looking at the shot, that's jason miares, he's about to be sworn in at this moment as virginia's new attorney general. it is a historic day for him. he is the first hispanic to be
9:27 am
elected statewide in virginia. he's also the first son of an immigrant to be the attorney general of virginia and he is the first person to beat an incumbent attorney general in the common wealth since 1885. let's listen. >> that i will support the constitution of the united states. >> that i will support the constitution of the united states. >> and the constitution of the common wealth of virginia. >> and the constitution of the common wealth of virginia. >> and that i will faithfully and impartially discharge. >> and i will faithfully and impartially discharge. >> all the duties incumbent upon me. >> all the duties incumbent upon me. >> as the attorney general of the common wealth of virginia. >> as the attorney general of the common wealth of virginia. >> according to the best of my ability. >> according to the best of my ability. >> so help me god. >> so help me god.

9:31 am
looks like they are just getting ready to do that. winsom sears is still at the podium. griff: it's a moment, anita, that we should point out that it was the republican party that has delivered the historical diversity across statewide offices as we are about to watch glenn youngkin be sworn in now. >> the oath of office will be administered to the governor elect the honorable glenn youngkin by the honorable s bernard, supreme court justicer of virginia, retired justice supreme court of virginia.

9:43 am
struggles virginians have endured over the last years, struggles that we continue to face, not a single one of us has escaped the tragic consequences of covid-19. today we lift up our prayers for the more than 15,000 virginians whose lives have been lost. we pray for their families and we pray for those who have survived but who lost jobs, lost an income or a business or even lost hope. we know the impact born by children who fell behind because their classrooms were locked down too long and the strain placed on parents especially virginians moms who had to juggle with their homes becoming job sites and virtual classrooms overnight. this moment of hardship has been compounded by economic factors,
9:44 am
inflation, supply chain failures, rising grocery, gas and utility bills as well as higher taxes and stagnant growth. we've all witnessed a rise in divisiveness in the public square and distress the public figures. our politics had become too toxic, soundbites have replaces solutions, taken precedence over good-faith problem solving yet as we gather here today i join you with an unbridal sense of optimism because i know and i trust virginians. we are home to a resilient and courageous people, heros who have inspired us, doctors and nurses who worked double shifts to save lives, truckers, postal workers that worked overtime to stock shelves and make
9:45 am
deliveries and neighbor who is have taken care of the frail and elderly in our communities. despite the continuing challenges posed by covid-19 i see a path forward, not to some pessimistic new normal but to a new and better day. our common pack forward is with the miracle of modern medicine. it's given us vaccine, new therapeutics and medical treatments and our common path forward is also forged with a deep and abiding respect for individual freedom. [cheers and applause] >> my fellow virginians our common path forward protect both lives and livelihoods across the great common wealth. my fellow virginians, i come into this moment and office knowing that we must bind the
9:46 am
wounds of division and restore trust, find common cause for the common good and strengthen the spirit of virginians and to be clear the spirit of virginia is not a spirit that is rested in government telling us what is best for us but rather reflecting the will of the people, defending and protecting. [cheers and applause] >> defending and protecting the rights by the constitution and elected leaders going to work every day for we the people. [cheers and applause] >> make no mistake, virginians remain resilient with tenacity and grit and undeterred hope and optimism to press through the
9:47 am
challenges. we must venture forward because a new and better day is ahead of us. after all, we are virginians whose leaders gave birth to this most exceptional nation the world has ever known. yes. a country with great chapters of injustice but also a country birth on the fundamental notion of freedom that we are all endowed by a creator with certain unaliable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, a nation whose ideas and ideals are replicated and memorialized around the globe for more than 250 years and virginians have led boldly. they fled boldly from our
9:48 am

anita: major tsunami in tonga after massive under water volcano erupts offshore sending shock waves that have led to tsunami advisories across the pacific, hawaii and west coast of the united states. welcome to fox news live, i'm anita vogel. griff: i'm griff jenkins, adam klotz tracking the latest advisories and jeff paul on the beach in marina del rey, california with dramatic images
10:01 am
coming in from tonga, jeff, what does the water look like where you are? jeff: griff, much different situation here in tonga. here along the west coast of california, we are experiencing a tsunami advisory and what that means is you will see a lot bigger waves here along the coast up and down through oregon and washington anywhere from 1 to 2-foot waves and essentially that means it's going to be dangerous rift currents and they don't want people swimming, boating or doing anything in the water today. this all started from a massive undersea volcano erupting on saturday and that sent large tsunami waves crashing offshore and people in nearby islands to get off the shores and tonga's king evacuated from the royal palace after the tsunami flooded the capital there. we know beyond tonga parts of
10:02 am
japan are under tsunami warnings and advisory have been issue for new zealand but back here in the united states especially here in california, you're still seeing folks out kyaking getting in their boats despite advisories. this is become a spectator event. >> out in california we get tsunami warnings but usually by the time they arrive here they are indistinguishable from the rest of the surf. it was a unique opportunity to observe it and be safe. it's not every day you get to wake up and check out a tsunami before you eat breakfast. jeff: from what we are seeing here along the california coast, really no reports of any damage as of yet. some neighbors impacted by those higher than normal waves. we are seeing some boats rocking from the bigger waves coming in but this advisory in effect all the way from here up the coast through alaska and into hawaii.
10:03 am
griff. griff: jeff, i suspect you're going to see a lot of surfers out there. one of my close friends is sitting on the sunset cliffs in san diego staring at the water wondering when the bigger waves will come for surfers it is dangerous we should point out but it's the sort of waves that they come out for, is that correct? jeff: yeah. yeah, for sure. and so far, you know, as you take a lack up here, we will pan off one more time, it's a really quiet beach. grant it it's early in the morning, that usually doesn't stop any surfers but i haven't seen too many people with their board as of yet, that, of course, could change. it was raining a little bit ago, it could keep people off the beach but yeah, like you said, griff, they do not advise people getting in the water for any sort of sport, swimming, boating or surfing, you will see the daredevils catching out the waves. griff: jeff paul in marina del

10:09 am
charles: good afternoon, the highly contagious omicron variant continues to drive the surge and drive the demand for covid testing across the country, states are trying to get a handle on it particularly here in georgia where you can see behind me atlanta's mercedes benz stadium is now playing host to a mega testing site that's capable of testing up to 2,000 people per day and this is just one of 3 of these mega sites of the atlanta metro area which has certainly seen spike in infections, in fact, the entire state of georgia is seeing high transmission rates, about 30% of all tests resulting in positive infections and with daily hospital admissions nearing 1,000 statewide and local health officials are hoping to identify early cases where there's still a window to provide guidance to prevent transmission. >> what we know is that we are having huge numbers of cases right now and the importance of
10:10 am
testing is that if you know that you are positive then you can take steps to isolate from other and to not spread it and so it is very important to know your covid status charles: mass testing and early contact tracing may be best defending for the foreseeable future. u.s. population may not move the needle more in terms of the current 63% of americans who are fully vaccinated and the 38% who were boosted. former biden administration adviser dr. saline tweeting, quote, it is now highly unlikely that the u.s. will hit the 85 to 90% of americans vaccinate today get the others -- to get to the other side of the pandemic and keep pushing forward with its message. >> president biden, you will see in his statement, will continue to call on businesses to

immediately join those who have stepped up including one-third of fortune 500 companies to institute vaccination requirements to protect their workers, customers and communities. >> testing continues to be a big focus here. the biden administration says federal website for folks to go on and order the 500 million home test that is they'll send out to americans will go live on wednesday. anita: people will be looking forward to that. charles watson, live in atlanta. thank you very much for that report. griff. griff: anita, the army reprimanding nearly 3,000 u.s. soldiers and leaving 6 active duty leaders who are refusing to come play with its covid vaccine mandate. joining us now author of america's number one adversary, retired lieutenant colonel oliver north and no stranger to virginia politics, colonel, thank you for taking time. i want to talk about the
10:12 am
military vaccinations but quickly you may have seen in the last hour, the live inauguration of virginia's 74th governor as someone who ran for senate in the common wealth, what are your thoughts of the new governor and what we saw today? >> thank you lord. i'm known glenn youngkin for considerable length of time. i contributed to his campaign, full disclosure and one of the things that was unique about the campaign he did not invite, quote, superstars to go out and campaign with him. what he did was campaign out there with the people of virginia wearing that vest and campaigning for them in a way that is unique in virginia. i congratulate him for a wonderful campaign and great success as our next governor. griff: a lot has been made about whether or not the vaccine requirement on active duty servicemen and women will impact
10:13 am
readiness and, in fact, we see just this week the marine corps okayed the first two religious exemptions for the vaccine after receiving more than 3300 requests. your thoughts? >> yeah. well, first of all, it's an experimental vaccine. i've got my shot record. you and i have traveled overseas together. i've got an international shot record that's got probably 40 different entries for different diseases. we took same testing when covering the world because you had to get vaccinated in order to get into the theater. i'm familiar with that. but none of those vaccines that we ever took before in my all years since 1961 when i first came to the marine corps, none of them were experimental. these are vaccines and they are designed to prevent a disease that we were told initially was going to make you immune to it. guess what, people who have been vaccinated like me and with a booster like me are now getting
10:14 am
the new variant of this -- of this and thankfully very few people are very sick from -- particularly young people. the united states marine corps has 2 out of 3300 who have been granted a release exemption. god bless them for it. bottom line this is not improving readiness of forces and in this particular time that ought to be number one concern with armed forces. if someone tests positive, obviously they will not go out and deploy but i will tell you that most people once they've had this certainly are going to be more immune than i am from all the dog-on vaccinations i've gotten. so i question whether the leaders of this country understand the vulnerabilities that we've got right now because of what they've done. griff: to play devil's advocate the fda approved the vaccine and that was why military leaders to
10:15 am
pushed them to get their men and women the shots but my question overall is as we go forward with threats like russia, with threats like china, a time that we need our military at its most ready, is this an issue that will impact readiness itself? >> well, if you start discharging people that we need in the service. right now the army is paying the maximum premium to recruit people in the united states army. this is not the time to be throwing people out of the army just because they would not take the vaccine. i don't see how that improves readiness whatsoever and congress ought to stand up and say, you can't do it. >> now as we talk about looming concerns and possible threats we've heard an awful lot about russia, obviously their intentions to possibly invade ukraine but you wrote a column this week raising concern that we haven't heard many people talking about and that is you're concerned that history can be repeating itself in cuba at the
10:16 am
hands of the chinese communists. >> well, if you look back at 1959 castro comes to power. he promise it is people of cuba a socialist narvana. can't deliver. 1962 after the dictator was gone fidel castro allowed his country to become a state of the soviet union and the next thing you know you have soviet intelligence bases, the biggest of them all and nuclear weapons on its way to cuba. for 14 days john kennedy played footsie trying to avoid nuclear holocaust and you have the communist chinese doing the same samething that kushev did. the belt and road initiative in havana started initiative to start supporting the castro government. what that means at some point --
10:17 am
they call it the belt and road initiative. in diplomacy it's referred to debt trap diplomacy. they build up enormous amount of debt that the nation can't pay and the cubans will be in the condition that many others and communist chinese will start building military bases in cuba and intelligence collection sites. there should be some concern about it. this administration doesn't seem to know it even happened. griff: to be clear, you are saying we could be facing a military threat in cuba, 90 miles south of miami? >> from the communist chinese we are building bases everywhere they possibly can. we don't need one of them 100 miles off of u.s. territory griff: lieutenant colonel, thank you for taking time on an array of subjects. troubling times to have a threat like that so close to the united states, thank you, sir. >> god bless you, buddy.

10:39 am
that because the biden administration put a moratorium on deportations and they've done everything that they can to tell ice not to remove individuals from this country. griff: chad we just learned this week according to release dhs report to fox news that between march and august of 2021, they essentially released about 104,000 migrants with notices to report. that is just a piece of paper that says if you want to claim asylum go to nearest ice office. only half bothered to do so. what does that tell us? >> well, it tells you that their strategy on the border is not working. it tells you that they were overwhelmed at the border during that time period march to august and it tells you that the system is broken and they essentially had to go on the honor system. they asked migrants to say wherever you go in this country whether it's portland, maine or portland, oregon, when you go up
10:40 am
there show to ice report, so they are now in the interior of the country. we have no idea where they are at. that's just through august. you remember the migrants, haitian migrants in del rio, texas, that was in september, you can bet a number of those were released in the ntr's, that number 47,000 is likely going to increase once we get the full 2021 numbers in for the entire year. griff: there's a whole slew of more haitians on their way, about 2 hours ago, i tweeted out a reporter down in mexico saying the first caravan of 202 has departed san pedro osula, honduras, all the way from honduras to eagle pass, texas and looks clearly that things are not slowing down and as you heard from dan springer's report that they could surpass 2 million this year. is it time for the administration to shift strategy? >> well, griff, i would say it's
10:41 am
past time. it's been time nine months ago for them to shift strategies. if you're the migrants or cartels, why not, why not start the caravan to the southwest border because you know something has changed. you have historic numbers month after month after month. you have public safety threats. national security threats and all sorts of illegal narcotics coming across the border and this administration has no strategy. when was the last initiative that they announced that was going to get tough on illegal border crossers. there has been none. they have no strategy, nothing is in place at the border to stop this and so you're going to continue to see the caravans in historic numbers come across the border. griff: chad as we know it's not just humans but also drugs as the cartels are taking advantage of and in fiscal year 2021, you've got seizures up 154% for deadly drug fentanyl and 68% for cocaine. is that something that should be alarm to go this administration?
10:42 am
chad: well, absolutely. you have to start addressing this. this goes hand in hand with number of illegal migrants coming across the border because they have to pay the cartels up towards to 5 to $10,000 for each individual coming across the border. those cartels are making millions of dollars a day, more than they have ever made and they can put that money into the enterprise, smuggle more illegal narcotics across the border. yes, the administration needs to do more. this takes leadership, this takes leadership talking about the fentanyl crisis that we have been talking about and talking about the threats and what's going on in the border but unfortunately you see, you know, president biden or vice president harris or even the secretary. no one is talking about this threat and it's inexcusable. >> just in the 20 seconds that we have left, you mentioned leadership and vice president harris, they are doing reshift in their office. is it time to take a different tact on the border? >> well, unfortunately i don't know that she's taking any tact
10:43 am
along the border. i think she's been fairly absent. i think the whole administration needs to view the border differently and they need to understand what's going on down there and frankly, you know, the vice president and president need to make a trip to the border and need to talk to the border patrol agents and law enforcement down there so they can get a firsthand. sitting in dc doesn't cut it. you need to understand and you need to see with your own eyes the crisis that's going on there and perhaps then they will make a change in policy. griff: we will leave it there, always helpful and insightful talking to you, former acting secretary dhs chad wolf, thank you. anita. anita: sisters slug fest, britney and jamie lynn spears public spat gets turbo charged with new social media posts. don't want to miss that. the details are next. ♪ ♪

>> welcome back, britney spears sister jamie lynn is speaking out on her famous sister conservatorship in her new
10:48 am
memoir and new britney is clapping back. [laughter] griff: yeah, sister -- >> once i realized that, you know what she's in a conservatorship i felt like i didn't want to be part until maybe she was out of the conservatorship. so there was no like me oversees funds or something like that and if that was it was a misunderstanding. but either way, i took no steps to be a part of it. anita: oh boy, that sparked a lot of drama. that interview was about jamie lynn spears new book, things i should have said and apparently she said some things in there that britney spears didn't like very much and now the sisters are feuding. griff: it's just a warfare and listen, britney has not backed down at all posting on the same day that her sister jamie was a, quote, scum person. all of this battle playing out on social media. now we should point out that britney spears is 40 year's old and jamie lynn is 30 year's old
10:49 am
and they are ten years apart. very unique to have the feud. it makes me wonder and you're looking at the social media pictures we saw in the last year from britney as the whole nation was captivated on the free britney saga obviously we all know where that stands now. i wonder where -- this is a chapter of fake sister warfare, is this publicity or is this real or genuinely hate each other which has the nation captivated. anita: there is that book out there and the tweets do drum up interest in them but everyone is always interested in anything that britney spears does. one thing that britney says is that her sister because she's so much younger is the baby and never had to work for anything and she's the one, britney, who had to work for all of her fame and success. griff: i just say britney, drop the new album. i'm ready to listen. anita: ready to rock and roll. griff: yeah. anita: martin luther king, jr. day of service is right around
