tv   Americas Newsroom With Bill Hemmer Dana Perino  FOX News  May 9, 2022 6:00am-8:00am PDT

6:00 am
actually looked at it. physically in louisville and gave me a call and i said i think we're there. >> steve: you made history. absolutely. congratulations to both of you. eric and rick. you're kentucky derby winners. >> ainsley: fun to watch. >> brian: bring on the preakness. >> all right. >> brian: see you tomorrow. >> fire and vandalism an a browe life group's headquarters. police investigating that as targeted arson happened in the state of wisconsin on monday morning. hope you had a good weekend. a lot to get to. i'm bill hemmer. >> dagen: i'm dana perino. this is "america's newsroom." it was a soaker of a weekend in the northeast. a lot of other people had great weather. we'll get our week started on the right foot.
6:01 am
the fire -- a chilling message sprayed on the side of the building. if abortions aren't safe, then you aren't, either. >> bill: churches brace for a threatened mother's day protest. pro-choice protestors gathered in cities nationwide and outside the homes of supreme court justices saturday night. >> dagen: in a statement yesterday a white house officials defended the fundamental right to protest but said the president condemns violence and vandalism after criticism like this from senator ted cruz. >> it was shameful the white house refused to condemn violent protestors threatening the families of the supreme court. it is disgraceful and joe biden used to be chairman of the judiciary committee. joe biden knows it is disgraceful and literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they are
6:02 am
unleashing. >> mark thiessen. >> the white house doubled down on peaceful protests and warning protestors not to intimidate. things did get ugly over the weekend. take a look in madison, wisconsin, somebody threw a molotov cocktail causing damage to the house and tagged. the president of the group wrote on facebook apparently tolerance that the left demands is truly a one-way street. violence has become their answer to everything. now the white house on sunday reiterated that the president believes americans have a quote fundamental right to protest but protests must be peaceful and free of violence, vandalism or attempts to intimidate. all of which he condemns in any case and a white house official
6:03 am
telling us just this morning that the president is strongly condemning this particular attack. while some other democrats are also now speaking out. >> no one should be threatening violence against a security justice and member of congress. i've had protests by my house in public service. any threats of violence are beyond the pale. >> protests happening outside the homes of justices and catholic churches have for the most part remained peaceful. more protests are expected later this week and mitch mcconnell is hinting that a push for a national abortion ban is quote possible if republicans win back the senate in november. the pressure continues to mount on democrats to do something in response. back in washington here a procedural vote to codify roe
6:04 am
v. wade in the senate is expected to fail this week because democrats don't have the vote. >> let's bring in marc thiessen. nice to see you. take you back to friday. clarence thomas. >> happy birthday, dana. >> bill: enjoy it. clarence thomas was quoted saying we're becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes not living with the outcomes we don't like. we can't be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. the events from earlier this week are a symptom of that. we can't be an institution that can be bullied into giving you the outcomes you want. that is a bit repetitive there but you get the point. let's begin, marc. >> clarence thomas is right. you have chris murphy saying i've been protested in my home and other places. he is a politician, a united
6:05 am
states senator and so he is supposed to be responsive to public pressure. supreme court justices are not and it's illegal to protest outside their house. it is illegal to protest near a building or residence occupied or used by a juror, judge, witness or court officer with the intent of influencing that judge, juror, witness or court officer in the discharge of his duties. the protests meant to intimidate them, what they are doing is tampering with a judge. you can't tamper with a witness or with a -- you know, a juror and you can't tamper with a supreme court justice. the biden administration, the justice department has a responsibility to tell the protestors to disburse or they will be arrested. they can't protest in front of the house. >> they said there is a fundamental right to protest. you bring up a good point there
6:06 am
is a law against that and we are a nation of laws. the justice was talking about that. on to the politics of it. the congressional ballot has republicans way up. if you look at this here in april it was republicans, democrat split 45/44. now it is 49 for republican to 42 democrat. that's a significant difference. amy klobuchar thinks that this issue of the roe v. wade decision will be decisive in the elections. >> if we're not successful, then we go to the ballot box. we march straight to the ballot box and the women of this country and the men who stand with them will vote like they've never voted before. >> what is your assessment of that idea? >> the democrats keep saying the supreme court is on the ballot and it doesn't work out for them. a reason for that. which is first of all, for people for whom this is an important issue it energizes
6:07 am
conservatives more than liberals. a 2019 maris poll that asked people who thought this was an important issue to their 60 to 40 thoit was important to their vote. there was a new cnn poll 32% of people excited about the election would be happy if it was overturned and 20% angry. that makes sense. one, conservatives care more about it than liberals do. and two, victory is energizing and defeat is dispiriting. if the court does overturn roe v. wade conservatives will have the wind behind their backs and go into the states and try to push more 15-week abortion bans like the one in mississippi and democrats and liberals pro-abortion will be on the defensive. it makes sense the conservatives will be more energized than the left.
6:08 am
>> bill: jen psaki deflected but it will come up again at the white house this week and see how her successor answers that. what they did in new york later today they went to st. patrick's cathedral downtown and had a rally but a big turnout in foley square in downtown, manhattan, is fine. do it there but not the home of the supreme court justice. thank you for your time. to be continued. thank you. >> the state department is monitoring the investigation into the mysterious deaths of three americans at a sandals resort. we're tracking the story from miami. >> there are no signs of violence here, not even any blood on the scene. that's important to be reminded
6:09 am
of. convulsions were apparent on some of the victims with first responders. early signs of this investigation are starting to look toward the direction of cause of death being either toxic or environmental. >> it all started day before yesterday where there were some signs of individuals presenting to the clinic with nausea, vomiting and symptoms. they were seen to and subsequently discharged themselves. subsequently the doctor found three individuals on one of the hotel properties here and pronounced dead at the site. >> you are familiar with sandals resorts, very popular. the commercials are on tv all the time billed as a luxury all inclusive resort in the most scenic caribbean locations.
6:10 am
one person said maybe the air conditioning in the units could be to blame. one is a man from birmingham, alabama, his wife is the injured survivor. sandals resorts issued this statement. nothing is more important to our resort than the safety of our guests and we're actively working to support both the investigation as well as the guests' families in every way possible during this difficult time. the resort remains open and the royal bahamas police force is still investigating, as it has been from the beginning, reiterating no evidence of any foul play here. the state department also monitoring this situation and the mysterious unexplained deaths of three american tourists in the bahamas. >> lots a curiosity on this story. >> bill: meanwhile the manhunt continues for a fugitive
6:11 am
convict and the woman who helped him escape. video showing her hours before they made a run for it. >> senate seat on the line in north carolina. one of the candidates will join us ahead of next tuesday's primary. >> bill: russia bombing a school inside ukraine. vladimir putin goes public yet again with claims of nazis in kyiv. >> very soon there will be two victory days in ukraine and someone won't have any. we won then, we will win now. riders! let your queries be known. uh, how come we don't call ourselves bikers anymore? i mean, "riders" is cool, but "bikers" really cool. -seriously? -denied.

see him? he's not checkin' the stats. he's finding some investment ideas with merrill. eyes on the ball baby. digital tools so impressive, you just can't stop. what would you like the power to do?
6:16 am
>> i think he is in a frame of
6:17 am
mind in which he doesn't believe he can afford to lose. >> bill: william burns warning that vladimir putin may double down in the second phase of the war in ukraine. here he is in moscow after he said the invasion is necessary, timely, and the right solution. that is not all he said. matt finn joins us from lviv in western ukraine. hello, matt. >> we're here on the ground in ukraine. there has been a sense of dread for today, monday, may 9th. there is a victory parade in red square. there was fear he might do something before or on today's date. he did give highly anticipated speech today during the parade. he said that there was -- forgive me, there was familiar rhetoric about this war referring to ukrainians as
6:18 am
nazis multiple times and claiming ukraine, nato and west were creating a threat on russian's border and that they had to invade ukraine because they were backed into a corner. >> we sawmill tear infrastructure being wrapped up and hundreds of military advisors working and modern weapons from nato. the danger was increasing every day. russia preventedly rebuffed the aggressor. >> the acting u.s. ambassador to ukraine arrived to the u.s. embassy in the capital city of kyiv. the next step in resuming a full american presence in the ukraine capital after the first lady met with ukraine's first lady since not being seen in public since the invasion. dr. biden said she thought it was important to show the ukrainian people that this war
6:19 am
has to stop. there is no let-up in the violence in ukraine. they say russia bombed a school yesterday leaving at least 60 people feared dead. the school in a village in eastern ukraine was being used as a bomb shelter. in a separate attack ukraine says an 11 and 14-year-old boy were killed. notable during the speech vladimir putin did not declare war. there was speculation he might. he also did not call for any type of general mobilization. that is notable, bill. >> bill: a lot to go through. matt finn nice to see you. >> dana: let's bring in general jack keane former army chief of staff now chairman tt institute for the study of war and fox news strategic analyst. i've been dying to hear what you think. in the lead-up to this may 9 celebration, a national holiday. military parade, putin is there. a lot of anticipation of what he might say. he didn't really say much. what do you think of that? >> it's a surprisingly
6:20 am
temperate speech. happy birthday and the best to you. yeah, most of us thought that so much more would come of this speech than what did. i think the general, their number one military general and probably the best general in a generation that russia has produced. he visited last week and got down to the tactical level to give you a sense of where he was, and i think maybe for the first time putin got a firsthand honest reflection of what is really taking place. and the challenges that the russians have on the ground. but the speech is characterized by more what he didn't say than what he did. he didn't -- as the u.k. defense ministry thought he was going to declare war in russia and go to full mobilization. did not happen. also he didn't claim victories
6:21 am
over anything like mariupol or kirson or try to politicize them into being political republics and didn't talk about intensifying efforts inside ukraine nor he threaten the expansion to nato. he certainly used the ukrainian nazis backed by the u.s. and nato as the reason to go to war. the last thing was there was no veiled threat of the use of nuclear weapons. so yeah, i was surprised by the speech, to be frank about it. but i think he may be for the first time have his feet planted on the ground in terms of what the challenges are that they are truly facing. >> dana: super interesting analysis. president biden is irate that was the word used, at these leaks coming out about united
6:22 am
states intelligence helping the ukrainians to destroy russian ships and maybe other things as well. you were at the pentagon. a leak like that would certainly be upsetting to you as well. do you know anything more about how this happened? what a leak like this could possibly do to get us to direct confrontation with russia? >> it is an unfortunate leak by somebody in the pentagon. we've seen it far too often not just in this administration but certainly in the previous administration and it does damage. just as the leak we're dealing with with the supreme court. it damages the institution. in this case the leak damages our national security because the pentagon is not even admitted to any of that. it could be an exaggeration. the good thing is we're providing intelligence to ukrainians. that intelligence is having an impact. that's a good thing. the people who are involved in that process just keep their mouth shut about what that
6:23 am
truly is unless a defense official or president wants to release that information. the president has every right to be frustrated and irate about it. >> dana: do you expect anything more from putin today or do you think that will be it? that he will let that stand given so many people thought he would actually be more full in his comments or have we seen the end of it today on may 9th? >> i don't know. i suspect when he has the international media focusing on him and certainly the speech was for consumption by his domestic audience and particularly putting it under the umbrella of world war ii this conflict against nazis again as justification for it, i suspect that he was going to make a policy change he would have done it at that speech so it remains to be seen. >> dana: interesting. general jack keane thank you. day 75 of russia's war in
6:24 am
ukraine. >> bill: thank you, sir. we'll keep an eye on it. the fraud in covid relief was enormous is what our fox news investigation reveals. how about $1 billion in one program alone? plus parents struggling to deal with the nationwide shortage of baby formula. we'll talk to one mother. how does this happen? >> it has been a nightmare. every few days hunting for baby formula. every grocery store around me, the shelves are completely empty. thousands of veterans are turning their equity into an average of $60,000 with the newday 100 loan. it lets you borrow all of your home's value so you can get at least 25% more cash than you get at a bank. rates are still near record lows, but are starting to climb. call newday right now.

as a main street bank, pnc has helped over 7 million kids develop their passion for learning through our grow up great initiative. and now, we're providing billions of dollars for affordable home lending programs... as part of 88 billion to support underserved communities... including loans for small businesses in low and moderate income areas. so everyone has a chance to move forward financially. pnc bank: see how we can make a difference for you. >> bill: 9:30 in new york. massive fraud in the paycheck protection program. federal investigators estimate $100 billion in covid financial relief wound up in the wrong hands. david spunt is on track for that at the department of justice. >> fraud is a concept dating back thousands of years.
6:30 am
when the pandemic hit the united states two years ago the fraudsters came out in droves and as of today, many of them are still on the run from authorities. the department of justice estimates that at least $100 billion in covid relief loan funding earmarked to help small business owners make payroll was stolen by fraudsters. >> i think people made a conscious decision we'll get the money out and if there is fraud we'll chase it later. not an acceptable model. >> fox news sat down with michael horowitz who is also the chair of the pandemic response accountability committee. >> one of the most basic forms of trying to stop this fraud and verify the identity of the person who is applying, what we found was that basic steps to determine identity weren't undertaken. second, the treasury department has a do not pay system. turned out 57,000 loans were
6:31 am
paid out in those first few weeks to individuals who are on the do not pay list. third, check against the deceased individual's list that the social security administration keeps. >> since ppp was ended, hundreds of arrests have been made by the f.b.i. >> you couldn't rule out we're at the $100 billion mark? >> i can't rule out the fraud could be in the tens of billions and some upwards of 100 billion dollars. but it is too early for me to tell you how high that number is going to go. >> two of the most brazen instances of fraud are out of los angeles. it was a family affair in one case. according to court documents rich & his wife adopted fake identities and security at least $18 million in ppp loans. they are alleged to have used their illegally obtained loans to purchase gold coins, luxury
6:32 am
watches and homes in the golden state before their arrest in october 2021. richard was sentenced to 17 years while his wife was sentenced to six years. both are awaiting extradition. according to official filings in another case, andrew pled guilty to securing 8 1/2 million through fraudulent claims and used the money to make risky stock market bets while gambling away hundreds of thousands more at casinos in las vegas. a hearing for his sentencing is scheduled in july. >> he selfishly took it literally out of the mouths of babes. >> nancy is the owner of a small business that helped feed infants with medical issues. she was denied ppp loans multiple times and ultimately had to downsize her vital business. >> they took it out of my patients' mouse, my pocket, my employees. that's not okay. >> it was a widespread problem
6:33 am
from the start of the program. >> the inspector general of the small business association raised early warnings about the hundreds of billions of dollars in covid relief loans the administration was tasked with disbursing. >> i don't believe that a proper control environment has to be sacrificed at the altar of speed. >> we believe transparency is the best disinfect ant. >> the department of justice has multiple probes underway bill and dana. the number of investigations is expected to grow. >> bill: david spunt, thank you, department of justice. >> dana: for more on this fox business correspondent is on set with us. people are frustrated with government anyway. maybe they will think there is a little fraud but $100 billion? that's the lot. >> i covered this from day one and i said it was bound to happen. even the legal stuff was
6:34 am
somewhat fraudulent. here is what i mean. when they prioritize loans, they pryor advertised it to financial and brokerage firms, law firms because they had better credit, they had less sort of -- they had less expenses and could pay back the loans easier. these were firms that were not shut down. brokers were making a ton of money during the pandemic. the fed was lowering interest rates to zero and a lot more. that meant less money to those restaurants and people that needed it, daycare person that you just interviewed. so this was fraudulent even in the legal stuff. plus they threw so much money at it at first. the whole notion is in defense of the government was let's get the money out there and worry about the fraud later because we locked down the economy. i think the biggest problem was they probably should have locked down the economy. second biggest thing they shouldn't have thrown mon at it. if you lock down the economy
6:35 am
you throw money at it and pay later and that's what's going on. >> bill: this is just the beginning is david's point. new york officials are accused of spending it oh critical race theory. and federal pandemic aid helped texas pay for its border crackdown. >> you can see the border crackdown as being more pertinent. >> dana: than critical race theory in schools. probably because the federal government wasn't doing their job. the president is going to try to talk about inflation tomorrow. scheduled a big speech. we don't know exactly what he will say. people are dealing with food increases across the board, meat, milk, poultry, all the things you buy every day are way up. gas prices again up to $4.30 a gallon. people are feeling it. >> avoidable scenario.
6:36 am
these guys literally threw gasoline on a smoldering fire. meaning these guys, biden threw massive spending when we didn't need it. the best stimulus package was coming out and the vaccines. the economy was getting better and just wanted to spend and spend. why? he wanted to be more transformational than obama. this has been out there and well-known. the other thing is the other cynical part with jerome powell kept lowering interest rates, printing money. because he wanted to be reappointed by biden. so when you put all that together that's literally taking a smoldering fire of inflation and throwing gasoline at it. now i will say there is a very narrow path to escape what will be likely an economic slowdown, maybe a recession. very narrow path. putin could turn around and say hey, i want out. oil prices could go down, you know, that net good for our economy and better for
6:37 am
inflation. china could somehow reopen fast and spur demand for our products but that's a double edged sword. if they come back immediately oil prices will go up. remember, the path out of a recession and markets coming down is extremely narrow. just be careful. >> bill: i always think especially for middle america, the weekend is when you see this. families that are together, they are moving around, they are on the road, and every time they are pulling into the gas pump it is another $110. >> we were in queens. my mother-in-law said can you imagine $6 a gallon for gasoline and we're like yeah. it is -- middle class and working class it is a killer and that's why the only solution to this -- i hate to say it like this but it's true -- chemotherapy. tough and grueling but the only way to get this out is through
6:38 am
pain. i hate to say it like that. we'll have to go through an economic slowdown, maybe a recession. if you think about it, inflation is in some ways worse than a recession. you are working really hard, wages aren't keeping up to price increases. then you stop buying and cause a recession. the longer it goes, the higher the inflation goes, so you almost have to kill it at its source soon. >> dana: thank you. >> bill: thank you. >> dana: people want to know. you give us straight talk and we appreciate it. thank you so much. stick around for this. >> dana: we saw one of the biggest upsits in kentucky derby history. rich striker won. he wasn't even in the derby until friday after another horse was scratched. the colt had just one previous win in his career. can you believe it? >> bill: no, i did not.
6:39 am
but if you loved horse racing, even if you don't, go back and watch the aerial shot from nbc where it starts at the top of the third turn and you will see that this horse found a way to find the opening time after time after time and i just hit the after burners, right? >> dana: pretty cool. >> bill: rich strike is rich. on to the preakness in two weeks. >> dana: do we have time for this one, guys? okay. here we go. this is sportscaster thinks he is talking to one guy but talking to a different guy. watch here. >> patrick, formula one television in england, yeah, i don't know if they can hear me up there. patrick, okay, it's not patrick and why he ignored me. what is your name, sir? >> harlow. >> i thought i was talking to somebody else. sorry about that. >> bill: how about that? >> dana: he thought it was patrick mahomes. that probably would have happened to me trying to cover
6:40 am
sports. >> bill: striking similarity, i would say in order to concede for the reporter. that was then and this was from earlier today. watch. >> this is about putting parents and americans and citizens back in charge. it is what we stand for and what america first is about. >> bill: north carolina republican part of a crowded field in north carolina for the senate seat. one opponent is former governor and he is coming up live. remember when nfts were the not new thing to buy? not so much today. cheryl casone on fox business to whatever happened to that idea? exploring the heart of historic europe with viking, you'll get closer to iconic landmarks, to local life

fanduel and draftkings, w two out of state corporations making big promises to californians. what's the real math behind their ballot measure for online sports betting? 90% of profits go to the out of state corporations permanently. only eight and a half cents is left for the homeless. and in virginia, arizona, and other states, fanduel and draftkings use loopholes to pay far less than was promised. sound familiar? it should. it's another bad scheme for california.

>> i'm tremendously grateful to president trump for his endorsement. the opened the cleared the path for a lot of others to support me. double digit number of sheriffs. the lieutenant governor who is very popular in north carolina. the national border patrol council. senator ted cruz.
6:46 am
the list keeps going on. >> ted bun wants to win a big vote. pat mcrory is looking to win it. good morning to you. i know your opponent has the endorsement of donald trump. how much does it matter, do you believe, in north carolina? let's get you in there. >> time i.d. ted budd had done nothing in his congress. no record of accomplishment. the group is called the club for growth as j.d. vance said in ohio the club for chinese. they are spending millions against me on negative ads. i think it is backfiring. a pro-china group that is trying to further close manufacturing in north carolina by having great cooperation with china. so that same group is now
6:47 am
trying to buy the north carolina u.s. senate seat for ted budd. some people are tired of it. >> bill: here is the -- you've been big on the outside spending. ted budd $8 million. club mandel endorsed another candidate in ohio. what are the issues in north carolina? what we saw is ohio is republicans turning out to vote. whether it's enthusiasm, against the biden agenda or that race was getting a lot of national attention. >> inflation is the biggest issue in north carolina. last night i filled up my gas tank, went grocery shopping to buy my wife a nice filet for mother's day and the prices are overwhelming for the middle class and poor. biden's policies are bankrupting the middle class and starve the poor if this continues. turnout is very low because there hasn't been a lot of
6:48 am

>> i think that's hilarious. anyone who has ever fed their baby formula knows when you find a formula that works for your baby, that your baby is happy eating and can digest, you stick with it. you can't switch it on your baby. maybe some babies can but for the most part if you switch formulas it will upset your baby's digestive track and be up all night with an upset baby and your baby will be in pain and no parent wants that. we need the brands that we know our children can eat. >> dana: the states that have higher than 50% out of stock rate here. north dakota, south dakota, iowa, missouri, tennessee, texas. a lot of babies that need this formula. what is your bottom line hope how to get out of this situation? >> you know, i don't know. i would like someone to address this. we have had so many things have gone through. parents have been under so much stress the last 2 plus years

7:32 am
out of harvard quoted "new york times." comes to conservative conclusions. the years 2020 and 2021, the academic years kids remote learning lost on average 50% of their gain in mathematics. lost 50%. the kids who were in school lost 20% because they weren't in school the whole time. everybody was shut down for a while. it was much better to be in class in person than learning remote. second, the kids who wekids in high poverty areas. big cities, run by democrats. that's where they put the hammer done and shut the schools down largely because of union influence. and the kids suffered. and this is a terrible thing. one of the more interesting things that people haven't talked about in this study is this. when they looked at the kids who went to school and went back to school late in the fall
7:33 am
of -- in the fall of 2020 and stayed through 2021, the worry about covid didn't materialize. those kids in school did not have higher rates of covid than the kids who remained home. i hope we have learned this lesson. >> dana: let's show everybody virtually what you were describing. the learning loss in math. you can see it goes way up. for all schools. then you see poverty levels got worse and the schools closed down and you mentioned the union influence and high poverty areas, you see they were closed 13 weeks compared to eight weeks at other places. i want to get a sense from you about what it means for a kid like that to lose half a year's worth of math. what does it mean for their life? and why isn't the administration's hair on fire trying to figure out a way to
7:34 am
try to help these kids catch up? >> that's a great question and what about the parents' hair on fire in those communities saying these democrats, these liberals have failed us yet again? high poverty kids losing 50% of their math very serious. not sure they can recover it. but you have to try summer school and everything else. but, you know, this is what happens when you have bad policy and when you run in a panic situation. so let's remember it for the next covid or whatever comes along. kids are not carriers normally and they are much safer in school and they learn more. that also frees up their parents to do their jobs. hope this lesson is learned. >> dana: if you are out there wondering about your kids see if there are summer programs. private organizations are trying to do good work in this

7:42 am
today. he shared a warning with current and potential staff tweeting, work expectations would be extreme but much less than i demand of myself. and that's not surprising. musk is looking to achieve lofty goals. it raked in 5.1 billion last year he is forecasting to go to 20.4 billion by 2028. a huge jump. he is known for missing his targets. all of this musk is facing a laundry list of opposition and now you can add the russians even. the kremlin threatening to hold him accountable for employing star link terminals to the ukraine military. he said if i die under mysterious circumstances it has been nice knowing you. >> dana: that is not funny at all and he apologized. thanks, kelly. ♪ thank god for abortion.
7:43 am
thank god for abortion ♪ >> bill: this is part of the scene in lower manhattan. last week's leak of a supreme court document that indicates the court may soon overturn roe v. wade. the pastor at the scene of one of the protests over the weekend. thank you for being here. you were there. from what i read there were several i guess dozens of protestors there. what was the scene like? >> i've had a less eventful weekend to be sure. a monthly event we host called the witness for life mass led by a group of franciscan priests who offer mass for 200 parishioners and after the mass some stay in the church and pray and the majority would walk down the block playing the rosary where the original planned parenthood is located. they stay across the street praying the rosary. there are a handful of
7:44 am
demonstrators and voice their opposition to what they are doing. this was of an entirely different order. we had close to 100 demonstrators and the police were always present for these events advised us it would be in our best interest not to have the procession. they recognize many of the faces in the crowd as what they term professional agitators and warned that our safety and protection could not be guaranteed. >> dana: do you anticipate maybe the police have let you know that this will continue for next several weeks, maybe months? >> everyone is sort of on hooks waiting to see how the fallout continues. when the supreme court issues their ruling, what the ruling is. we've been doing this for over a decade every month rain or shine and we certainly intend to continue doing so and we hope the police are able to protect us so that we can express our faith and our
7:45 am
belief in the sanctity of every human life. >> bill: a couple things here. do you feel the need for more security based on what you have seen right now? >> right now we do, sure. police have been very good. we have private security all weekend. the vast amount of phone calls have been supportive and encouraging but we have received a number of threats to bomb the church, burn it down. very hateful and vile messages and so we are just on high alert to make sure that the church and our people are protected. >> bill: that issue at a higher level so to speak. what is the church's plan for if roe v. wade is overturned at the end of june, what is the church's plan for talking to parishioners and talking to the americans and across the street on the sidewalk that you saw this weekend? >> we're in this playing the long game. even if roe v. wade were
7:46 am
overturned. we hope and pray it is. nothing will change on a practical day-to-day basis in new york city. and we see that as a very unfortunate reality. we are not politicians. we aren't legislators. we're not in this for the political arena. we are here to change hearts. to promote a culture of life wherever life is cherished and respected. and part of the awful unfolding that we saw saturday outside of the old cathedral was the celebration of death. people cheering at grotesque enactments of baby dolls smashed on the sidewalks and it is my hope that anyone of goodwill on the other side of this issue who sees that might pause and say my god, what have we become as a culture? where has this led us? to rethink how it is that we foster the spebt for human life. >> dana: it was a great
7:47 am
question. maybe the last one would be as we maybe families try to navigate within their own families, what is the best way to try to listen with grace and express yourself with grace in a time when people are feeling as passionate and angry as some are on this issue? >> we always try to make sure that our monthly event is one of peace, civility. we do have someone unfortunately sort of hijack the event on what he tried to make it look like was our side of the issue engaging with the demonstrators and saying things that do not at all represent our position or point of view. and that was unfortunate. it makes our job that much more difficult. we want to make sure that civil discourse is civil and that this is a controversial issue for sure and one that has torn the country apart for decades and it is not going away any time soon. we hope cooler heads prevail and we can speak about the
7:48 am
issue with the clarity and calmness it warrants. >> dana: you have the calmness all around you. now we feel nice and calm and start our day in a better way. >> bill: foley square is nearby and another rally there. that's fine. you got a permit, show up. that's okay. this is borderline harassment and you saw at the supreme court justice's houses over the weekend. it's in the headline. >> dana: we hope to see you again. still to come. more on the manhunt for the cop and jail boss accused of helping him escape. the questions law enforcement has. >> what is up with vickie? is it a barricaded suspect? what's the mindset? suicide by cop? dangerous situation. i hope it goes down without incident. this is art inspired by real stories of bipolar depression. i just couldn't find my way out of it.

7:55 am
nancy grace host of crime stories. she might be or might be in on it. she sold her house below market value days before she disappeared. can you tie this together? >> yes, i can. the two are not mutually exclusive. she is in on it for sure. no question about that. but she is also in danger. this guy is a stone cold killer. he is dealing with a cream puff. look at her. she was a fourth time annual employee of the year. she has been in and out of jails, but still compared to him i learned a few things in the last hours. i have learned that the car they were driving orange taurus appeared to have had a flat tire. this woman planned and planned and planned. sold her home under market value. valued at $200,000, sold it for $95,000. way under market value. she had all the cash. she spent the night at a local
7:56 am
quality inn, parked her getaway car she bought with cash under an assumed name and they went straight to the car after she sprung them. appeared to have a flat. then they tried to spray paint it green. not that way when she bought it. that tells me their plan went sideways. it was in a rural area at an intersection. you think they planned to leave their car there? no. that tells me they may have been forced to go on foot into the rural area where they were to try to get to -- wait for it -- i-65 which takes you to i-69 and then i-75. you go from that area to detroit, to 75 to canada. she probably had fake i.d.s. they need to be looking at her devices to see if you can order them. you can get them in two days on the internet. that was not part of their plan. i also think they are armed.
7:57 am
she went shopping for men's clothes and sex toys before she sprang him. i just learned that in the last hour as well. >> bill: wow. that's a lot. i guess the other thing in there is maybe they got some help on the outside. and that's a possibility. one last thing. >> it's possible but don't you think somebody would have blabbed that? >> bill: maybe that comes out. she took him in for a mental evaluation at the courthouse that was never scheduled. >> that's right. that was her ruse to get him out and she said it to an underling who wasn't going to argue with his boss. i know this guy is on meds. is he diabetic, will they have to stop for medication? they also know when they had that flat tire, which we think it was a flat, they had to get transportation. they had to get to the interstate. so that would be where i was
7:58 am
looking. remember, there are two dead bodies connected to this guy, all right? connie ridgway and another woman miss shelton shot while he was in the home. >> bill: thank you. tips are on the line there. it is a good mystery and it continues. nice to see you, nancy grace, thank you. >> dana: thank you. we have a brand-new series on fox nation we are excited to tell you about. kelsey grammer takes us through our great nation and i spoke with him about the passion that drove him to join us to make this new show a reality. >> i have a long and sort of abiding appreciation for what people have done for this country especially our servicemen throughout history, particularly george washington i know we'reville filing him now for having them men of their time and yet they were men of great vision and so
7:59 am
we're doing our best to represent that and the heroism they're notable for. >> dana: they're available on fox nation. his patriotism shines through and the quality of the production is excellent. check it out. >> bill: well done. kelsey, thank you for doing that. before we go, a little something, something. ♪♪♪ born on this day 21 years ago today. >> dana: yeah, exactly. i'm great and grateful for everybody's well wishes and percy's face. thank you. it's a day to be full of gratitude. great family, friends. great health. there is all of those things, family, friends, health, but also to have work that i love,
8:00 am
