6:00 am
for performing today download some of his music so you can dance along at home. >> oh what a night. >> oh what a night. almost had me down. >> have a great weekend, everybody. [cheering and applause] >> bill: great show, good morning. 9:00 as we turn the corner now on a day of news that is stunning. assassination stunning the world. the former japanese prime minister shinzo abe, a close ally of the u.s. is shot and killed. tough news to begin with. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to our program. dana has the day off and julie, welcome back. >> i'm julie banderas, "america's newsroom." a strong word of caution, this video is graphic but here is the moment the gunman struck.
6:01 am
>> bill: all that happening during a campaign event days before a national election. shocking a nation with some of the world's tightest gun regulations. violent crime in japan is rare. >> he was airlifted to a hospital with two gunshot wounds but they were fatal as doctors tried to revive him. >> the begunman was tackled at the scene. 41 years old. he is alive and an investigation underway how he got so close. alex hogan begins our coverage live in london with the late breaking details as we get more now. alex, hello. >> hi, bill. the former prime minister of japan has been assassinated. shinzo abe was at a campaign event when he was shot this taking place today in the western part of the country.
6:02 am
minutes into his speech for a parliamentary election the 67-year-old conservative politician fell to the ground shot from behind. medics airlifted him to the hospital and doctors attempting to save him with blood transfusions before they officially declared him dead. the gunman is in custody on charges of suspicion of attempted murder. the 41-year-old yamagami was tackled moments after the shooting next to what appears to be a double barreled handmade gun. the country has extremely strict gun laws making this attack more of a shock for the people of japan. abe came from a long line of similar figures. his grandfather was prime minister and foreign ministers now who are meeting at the g20 summit in bali expressed grief and solidarity with japan.
6:03 am
>> he was an extraordinary person. someone who clearly was a great leader for japan but also so admired. >> world leaders are speaking out today one after another. indian prime minister today commented on abe's insight on foreign affairs and also how generous he was at a person. now the current prime minister of japan kishida condemned when he called a barbaric attack. abe was the longest serving prime minister in japan serving from 2006 to 2007, took a brief pause, then was prime minister again from 2012 to 2020. both times he resigned over health concerns. >> bill: thank you for that. strong lineage for political
6:04 am
history in japan as well. he made a strong relationship with the u.s. a priority. he was that country's first leader to address a joint session of congress, that happened seven years ago in 2015. he also hosted then president obama at hiroshima. he developed a strong rapport with president trump. mike pompeo met with mr. abe. here they are in 2018 right before a summit with north korea. mike pompeo will join us soon on the reaction that we're getting from him and around the world. much more on this story as we get the images and more how this happened. >> fox news alert on america's money. the new monthly jobs report beating expectations. the u.s. adding 372,000 jobs last month, unemployment
6:05 am
staying at 3.6%. >> bill: all that chilling fears of more inflation possibly. will it happen? heating up a simmering economy in desperate need of cooling down. the soaring prices on everything from gas to groceries are hitting your pocketbook hard every day. it raises the possibility of more interest rate hikes from the fed but the white house press secretary just yesterday shrugging it off looking at what some consider to be an alternate reality. >> when we look at where we are economically. we are in a strong -- we are stronger economically than we have been in history. >> mark meredith is live at the white house with more this morning. good morning, mark. >> good morning. we're still awaiting official white house reaction to the latest jobs report as you mentioned beat expectations. unemployment rate still well below 4%. the president has said he believes the u.s. economy is on stable footing while also warning he knows inflation is a real concern. want to break down where the jobs were added last month
6:06 am
according to the government which shows that healthcare added 57,000 jobs. we saw added jobs also in transportation and manufacturing. also a lot of jobs added in leisure and hospitality. not necessarily surprising given the summer months when people travel and kids are out of school. polling shows americans are concerned about the state of the economy with inflation, gas prices, and the economy overall dominating the top three issues people are concerned about. while republicans blame the white house and its policies for high gas prices, economic uncertainty, the white house insists those concerns aren't the president's fault. more a result of global turmoil and a post pandemic economy. we're hearing from pundits who believe democrats will end up paying the price after the mid-terms because of the uncertainty. one "washington post" columnist summed it up wrote what appears to be a major storm could fizzle out. but right now it looks like a
6:07 am
category 5 political hurricane is taking form offshore and headed right toward democratic central. while the latest jobs report will be seen at the white house as a sign of success one brief idea of where things stand with the economy. wealth owe get another major report next week when the latest consumer price index report is due out and tell us how much we're paying on certain goods and how much they've gone up or down in the last month and a key indicator about inflation, which we talked a lot about. >> yes, we have. mark meredith. thank you. >> bill: fresh headlines from maria bartiromo to analyze. we were expecting 270,000, we had 370,000. it's a good number. i don't see a lot of people putting it there. how do you evaluate it when the previous two months have been revised lower by about 75,000 jobs, maria? >> good morning. bill. definitely a strong report. it shows the jobs market is
6:08 am
continuing to be a tight place. we're talking about this concern from employers now for several months, the fact this is the tightest jobs market they've ever seen pushing wages up. 372,000 jobs much better than the expectation. so many people are questioning how it is possible that we can generate 372,000 jobs even in potentially a recession, which is where we are potentially right now. look, what you want to look at in this report is wages. they have slowed for a third month in a row. exactly what the federal reserve wants to do. wages were up 5.1% but down from where we saw the wage number the month before. again, a slowdown in the pace of wage increases for a third month in a row. you've got to also take a look at the fact that we've got the participation rate st 62.2%. we continue to see the
6:09 am
participation rate not moving. you would think that hire inflation, higher costs for everything as you said. inflation at a 40-year high would be pushing people back into the workforce and looking for a job. the participation rate is the same at 62.2% for several months now. that is a concern. mark just mentioned next week's report. that will be critical. we have the cpi and the ppi out on wednesday and thursday next week and year-over-year we're talking about the ppi being above 10 1/2%. expected at 10.6%. cpi expected above 8%. that will the market mover. the morning we talk about a report that is continuing to generate job growth. the jobs picture has not changed all that much, even in the face of 40-year high inflation and gas prices where they are. i do not believe that gasoline and inflation has peaked at this point. i really do not see evidence of
6:10 am
that even though commodities have come off the highs and we have not hit the peak driving season yet this summer. it is right around the corner, of course. also right around the quarter is the second quarter earnings reporting season. we'll start getting second quarter earnings in about a week and where we have the guidance from corporate america where they're likely to say they aren't seeing much change in the second half of the year that we saw in the first half of the year. an economy that's slowing despite job growth. >> bill: you heard from the white house saying the economy is extraordinary right now. you heard the comment yesterday and i want to repeat this, if you want to work in america you can. there are 11 million jobs available now. here is the exchange peter doocy asking the direct question as to whether or not is america on the right track or wrong track? maria, the other day you had 88% of americans think we're going in the wrong direction. here is the exchange. play it for you and ask you. >> why do you think it is that 88% of people in this country
6:11 am
polled think the country is on the wrong track? >> the president understands what the american people are going through. he understands that gas prices are high because of putin's tax hike and also the food insecurity, the food cost has skyrocketed and dwr the president has done everything he can to blunt those high prices. >> bill: you have all that. we heard from mark's comment from his report on the north lawn. to you, does this number defy or contribute to the idea of being in a recession or does it suggest we need to tread water to get an answer on that still further? >> well, i think it defies the idea that we may be in a recession right now. i think we are in a recession right now frankly because i'm looking at anecdotal evidence that things have slowed down quite a bit and inflation is staying elevated. we're definitely not in the best economy in history.
6:12 am
we're right now in a contraction. the first quarter contracted 1.6% and this morning you've got the atlanta federal reserve expecting a contraction in the second quarter of 1.9%. goldman sachs is expecting growth but taken the growth level down. in a nutshell, the economy is in a contraction. we're not growing. however, the jobs market so far has not been impacted too negatively from the sticker shock of inflation. it has impacted the corporate earnings sector and impacted the stock market. there is a wealth effect there that could play into all of this. but we'll see if this is the last strong report that we see before evidence of a recession, bill. mixed story in my view. >> bill: are we dipping or dropping or going the other way? thank you so much. great analysis. have a great weekend. thanks. new york city store owner is
6:13 am
now out of ryker's prison charged for murder after defending himself against an unprovoked attack in his store. will new york's far left prosecutor now go one step further and drop the charges entirely? >> plus we're soon going to learn just how those border agents falsely accused of whipping migrants will be punished. >> bill: also remembering a legend. james caan known to zoom as the hot headed sonny in the godfather is gone. >> the turk wants the talk. >> you got the nerve. >> he wants a meeting today. >> what did he say? he wants us to send michael and the promise that the deal is so good we can't refuse. okay everyone, our mission is to provide complete balanced nutrition for strength and energy. woo hoo! ensure, complete balanced nutrition with 27 vitamins and minerals.

>> julie: just a couple hours from now president biden will be signing an executive order on abortion access. he is facing growing pressure from his own party to take action after the supreme court overturned roe v. wade two weeks ago. alexandra hoff is live in washington with more. >> the president's stance has been there isn't a lot he can do and focused on rallying voters to turn out in november for congress to codify roe v. wade. not enough for progressives. he looks to satisfy the immediate demands. today's executive action will build on actions already taken by the president. the actions will clue new measures to safeguard access to contraception and direct hhs to make sure abortion related medication is available as widely as possible and seeks to
6:20 am
clarify the legal protection and responsibility of healthcare providers in treating a medical emergency. >> i can't speak to any political election process and what strategy we're taking. what i can say is the president has been very clear he is going to do everything that he can to protect freedoms and rights for women and the american people. >> the president now also seeks to convene volunteer lawyers to assist in protecting a woman's ability to travel out of state to terminate a pregnancy. in addition president biden is calling on the federal trade commission to combat digital surveillance related to reproductive healthcare an effort to insure data remains private. the fact sheet contains directives to different departments and phrases like taking additional steps. the exact mechanism used to satisfy many of the promises remains a bit unclear. >> julie: thank you. >> bill: more on that later.
6:21 am
panel now. gentlemen, hello and good morning to both of you. just a couple of points i want to make here and i think you guys have been following this. the overreach on behalf of this administration. "new york post" puts it this way. with friends like these you can almost feel sorry for biden almost. the graph. the marquee priorities of many dems are out of line with voters. it makes no difference to left leaning dems. they want action now, now, now. making the point about an overreach. now the numbers of departures from this white house. they aren't shy to say goodbye. when you compare those who left the obama administration to the biden administration at this point, the number in this term is four times higher. wow. terry, if you want to start try to help us understand why so
6:22 am
many have jumped off the ship. >> they are running for the exits because they see their time in washington coming to a pretty abrupt close during the mid-term elections. this administration has had the congress in its hands for the last 18 months but hasn't been able to really deliver on a lot of the outlandish priorities they set for some of their coalition members and so it's both a desperate time for them to try and get what they can while they can, but it is also time to re-evaluate and maybe figure out whether joe biden is going to be their leader for the future. you see a lot of mass nations out there in the country, gavin newsom and others looking at possibly running. so i see the democratic party in turmoil right now. >> bill: matt, how do you see it? can you steady the ship?
6:23 am
>> absolutely. look, this happens in every single modern presidency. clinton before the 1994 mid-terms that went badly but he was considered very weak at this point in his presidency. he was asked in the post election press conference if he was still relevant and there were all kinds of rumors about how he would -- couldn't lead the party going forward. same thing happened not to george w. bush because of 9/11 but happened to obama, donald trump right before 2018. it always happens. as for the departures, remember this team had to work through the pandemic on the campaign and then in the first year of the administration they were working from home, working in masks, it was a brutally difficult job. they are exhausted and these kinds of departures are not unusual. there are a few more this time i think because the circumstances were so different. look, i think the president will run again and i think he
6:24 am
is going to -- the party will rally behind him and i have no doubt he will come out stronger on the other side. >> bill: i want to make a point about that. even with the pandemic as rational you are using. during the trump team the departures here -- the numbers that we found is still four times higher than under trump. and obama as well. it is extraordinary figure. there is a big story happening in new york. we're seeing this possibly as a sea change. a new mayor eric adams and know how he will do. the big story about the store owner put in jail for a week. eric adams came out, this might be the first pushback from a liberal democratic politician who is pushing back now against progressive policies. i'll play the clip. you both react after this. >> you have the far right that states give everyone a gun no matter what. you have the far left that states everyone that uses a gun
6:25 am
shouldn't be held accountable. these two groups are not the majority of americans. and they have actually held our country and city hostage. >> i only have a minute. a big topic. but is this a sea change for you? >> it's eric adams 15 minutes of fame. i don't see how a mayor of such an important international city can be trying to maybe run for president, to be in the national dialogue, when the streets of his own city aren't safe and there are contradictions into how that city polices itself. looking inward would be more instructive for us if he is going the share his views. looking inward what's going on in the city of new york. >> bill: the quote is the far left wants everyone that uses a gun should not be held accountable. you don't hear that every day. a quick answer, matt.
6:26 am
>> you don't but you have heard it from some. you've heard it from joe biden and london breed, the mayor of san francisco. there has been a lot of pushback to this idea of defunding the police. voters hate it. they've thrown out prosecutors in san francisco who were going too far in that direction and i think democrats, democratic voters spoke loudly it's not where he they want to go. >> we'll bring you both back very soon. thank you for your time today. >> we've taken unprecedented action to respond to this. texas law enforcement and national guard, anybody they apprehend coming across the border illegally they'll be returning to the border. >> julie: greg abbott living up to his word. what the lone star state is now doing to fix the chaos at the border as the biden administration takes a hands-off approach. plus the fentanyl crisis in king county, washington, hitting a new level. what the democratic-led area is
6:27 am
now considering next. riders! let your queries be known. yeah, hi. instead of letting passengers wrap their arms around us, could we put little handles on our jackets? -denied. -can you imagine? i want a new nickname. can you guys start calling me snake? no, bryan. -denied. -how about we all get quotes to see if we can save with america's number one motorcycle insurer? approved. cool! hey, if bryan's not gonna be snake, can i be snake? -all: no. psoriasis really messes with you. try. hope. fail. no one should suffer like that. i started cosentyx®. five years clear. real people with psoriasis look and feel better with cosentyx. don't use if you're allergic to cosentyx. before starting get checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infection, some serious and a lowered ability to fight them may occur. tell your doctor about an infection or symptoms or if you had a vaccine or plan to. tell your doctor if your crohn's disease symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reaction may occur.

for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis who are positive for acetylcholine receptor antibodies, it may feel like the world is moving without you. but the picture is changing, with vyvgart. in a clinical trial, participants achieved improved daily abilities with vyvgart added to their current treatment. and vyvgart helped clinical trial participants achieve reduced muscle weakness. vyvgart may increase the risk of infection. in a clinical study, the most common infections were urinary tract and respiratory tract infections. tell your doctor if you have a history of infections or if you have symptoms of an infection. vyvgart can cause allergic reactions. the most common side effects include respiratory tract infection, headache, and urinary tract infection. picture your life in motion with vyvgart. a treatment designed using a fragment of an antibody.
6:32 am
ask your neurologist if vyvgart could be right for you. >> bill: from the border. texas taking more action on illegal immigration. the governor greg abbott authorizing the national guard and state troopers to return migrants to the border. how is that going to work? bill melugin live in eagle pass, texas with more today. bill, good morning. >> good morning to you. that's exactly right. what the state of texas is not going to be doing is deporting these migrants back to mexico. what they are doing is they are going to be apprehending these illegal immigrants and dropping them off at u.s. ports of entry. again on the u.s. side of the border. as you take a look at video here we have shot as embedded with texas dps what changes now is up until this point, when texas dps apprehends migrants they take them into custody and hand them off to border patrol. the federal government.
6:33 am
what governor abbott wants to do now is allow texas national guard and texas state troopers to take them into custody themselves and take them right on down to the port of entry on the u.s. side where they will then drop them off. texas governor greg abbott invoking article 4, section 4 of the u.s. constitution which essentially says that the federal government has to protect states against the threat of invasion. now governor abbott isn't going as far as declaring an invasion at the southern border but he wants to give that power to his texas law enforcement to take illegal immigrants to ports of entry on the u.s. side of the border. why is he doing this? why does he feel the need to do this? look at these videos. massive groups of migrants spill across the border in texas day in and out. we had a group of 436 the other day. the video is a group of 200 we had yesterday. border patrol in del rio sector reporting in just over 24 hours
6:34 am
they had more than 1200 people in four separate groups. people coming from all over the world. one guy from bangladesh. texas governor greg abbott saying he will take this action and you can probably expect the federal government will likely sue the state of texas over this. we'll send it back to you. >> bill: another remarkable day. what's the update on the border agents who were wrongly accused of whipping haitian migrants? >> multiple federal sources are telling me that cbp has sent out proposals for discipline to those agents in an announcement from cbp on their administrative findings is imminent could come down as soon as today is what i'm being told. cbp has finished the investigation and have administrative charges. they'll accuse the agents of. multiple federal sources confirming to me the agents were notified yesterday that proposals or discipline are coming their way. we'll have to wait and see what
6:35 am
that proposed discipline is. >> bill: bill melugin back on the border today. thank you. >> julie: king county washington officials will declare fentanyl a public health crisis. the county which includes seattle is on track to set another record in overdose deaths from the powerful opioid. dr. marc siegel is a fox news contributor and professor of medicine at landon medical center. this is alarming. they'll set another record of deaths in 2022 and the deadly drug has swept across the nation killing nearly 60,000 people in the u.s. in 2020. that's a 500% increase since 2015 to put it into perspective. that's how bad this is. >> let me tell you why and why seattle and king county. it is because the drug cartels and the new generation cartel, the biggest trafficker of
6:36 am
fentanyl across the southern border and the number one wanted person in all of mexico has targeted seattle. has targeted them and they are flowing across the border and up into king county. they are using fentanyl because it's very cheap. they don't care. one really disturbing statistic out of the university of washington addiction and alcohol institute is that 2/3 of the people taking fentanyl up there are using it deliberately. we have covered extensively on fox the accidental overdose deaths, tragic. people taking counterfeit pills. there is also a lot of people taking it deliberately. one more point about that. a close relative of mine ran a food bank in tack ohm yeah this year and a lot has to do with homeless camps. of the 95 deaths in the homeless deaths in seattle, 34 of them are fentanyl overdose deaths. so that's one place that's
6:37 am
being targeted. >> julie: if you look at the number of fentanyl pills seized in seattle alone between 2020 and 2021, back in 2020 it was 63,000. that's not a number to scoff at. then 650,000 pills. this is just unheard of and the question now is what is the administration going to do about it? a lot of this is coming over the border. the border is a huge let's say forgotten crisis under this administration. what is the solution? >> by the way, i didn't mention yet that it is coming from china and india especially china into mexico and trafficked across the border. what's not the solution. the administration calls for education. we're educating now. when you talk about 650,000 pills in seattle alone, 10 times the amount of a year ago and the pandemic is a perfectfer tile ground for the spread because everybody was
6:38 am
hunkered down and we don't have the mental health and addiction services and awareness or knar con and that wears off and simply looking for education or king county calling this a public health emergency, fine. i'm all for that but that doesn't solve the problem. it doesn't begin to get to the problem. i agree with you, we have to look at the southern border first. >> julie: absolutely. not just seattle. it is every state in this country. it is just awful. dr. siegel, great to see you. thank you. >> great to see you, thank you. >> remember after all those years nobody knew whose misery's father was or ever be reunited. it is all right here. >> i'm the last guy in the world that you want to mess with. >> let's get it over with. >> what are you going to do? nice college boy. want to get mixed up in the
6:39 am
family business and now gun down a police captain because he slapped you in the face? do you think oats the army? you have to -- come in. >> bill: the man had range. small sample of some of the best moments what was a legendary career. james caan, passing away on wednesday according to a family statement on twitter. best known for his roles in thief and misery and elf and, of course, his break-out role at sunny cord loan in the godfather earned him an oscar nomination. he was voted italian of the year twice despite being jewish and of german descent. well done, james caan, you had range. 82 years old. we remember you now fondly.
6:40 am
>> julie: claims twitter is hiding the true number of spam accounts on the platform and violence heating up in chicago after a bloody fourth of july weekend that left more than 60 people shot. one local pastor is calling for action and he joins us next. >> hearing about somebody getting shot is like a person hearing about a kid breaking an arm or falling off a bike. we have to get to the place where we want justice, not what area it happened in. of plaque bacteria and forms an antibacterial shield. try parodontax active gum health mouthwash. i'm steve. i lost 138 pounds in 9 months on golo and taking release. golo saved my life. i was way overweight, and that's what sent me down the path,

>> julie: elon musk's twitter deal is failing to get off the ground. his team is preparing to take drastic action. they claim the tech company cannot verify the number of spam accounts they have. kelly o'grady is here with more. i'm not surprised about this, kelly. >> i know, julie, right? this saga with the spam bots has been ongoing since musk wanted to investigate further. he got access to the data fire hose. his independent evaluation not legitimizing the claim that less than 5% of users are fake. twit ser trying to get in front of that. management is spooked and
6:46 am
yesterday reportedly sharing on a conference call their team removed more than a million spam accounts each day. musk sharing his skepticism. how many new real accounts per day? >> that's the real question. those working with musk have allegedly stopped negotiating with investors for further financing commitments. sources in the banking world tell me we can expect a response from musk soon. if he does try to walk he faces a messy court deal. he can prove twitter misrepresented its user base. a dataset as large as that fire hose you can normally find anything. he is maybe seeking a lower purchase price with the stock trading 31% lower. zooming out for a second the trajectory thus far. he invested in twitter, forced a board seat offer. submitted a purchase bid and twitter agreed. he threatened to walk and received a spam bot data.
6:47 am
twitter is backed into a corner stock price-wise. it feels like another move in the stance. >> julie: i'm sure he expected this to come as well. kelly o'grady. thanks. >> bill: city of chicago, great american town is in the midst of a summer crime surge. the deadly city is on pace for more than 600 murders for the third straight year in that month. chicago pastor is blasting politicians for ignoring the violence. more people were murdered in chicago over the july fourth weekend than the high land park parade shooting on the city's north side. t.j. grooms is a pastor and with me from chicago. good morning. as far as i can remember, every monday morning we report on the number of people shot in chicago. it doesn't change. why are you so ignored when so much of the national media
6:48 am
within your city for the past week on the north side of town? >> you know, bill, i think one of the main reasons why is because to be honest and candid, there is no incentive to come to an area that is struggling economically. there is no incentive to come to an area that a lot of people are not politically engaged. i hate to be that cynical about our politics but if there is no incentive there is no attendance. so that's one of the main reasons why we have become desensitized to exactly what's going on in our area because it's almost expected. and that's one of the reasons why i believe that we just don't see the level of support that we need. >> bill: you told our team the other day that politicians get brownie points when they go to places like hyland park. why wouldn't they feel the same with you? >> well, you know, i think it
6:49 am
goes back to what i just recently stated. if there is no incentive, then of course for a politician to come to a certain area and there is no incentive there is no need for them politically and it is sad that we have come to that particular state of mind as relates to our politicians and it's sad that's how they view the areas that we live in. but at the end of the day that's what politics is about and i just hope and pray that one day we can get to a place to where we care about underserved areas in our country, especially here in chicago. we are more concerned about what's going on and we're not coming there with an intention on getting something back or benefiting from it. >> bill: you have the right message but i don't know where you find the hope that it's going to change. the numbers, murders 2021 almost 800, right?
6:50 am
797. in 2020, 772. 2019 -- you are down at 498 then. it's unacceptable. what do you want? what could make it better? how could you get the attention of those brown nosing politicians? >> that's an amazing question and i would love to give you a couple of answers. number one, i've gotten to a place to where i no longer expect from them. whenever there is something going on in my community and my home, whenever there is something going on in my area i have gotten to a place where i have decided to look in the mirror and not through a window. when you look through a window you see what everybody is and isn't doing. when you look in the mirror you look at yourself and see what you are and are not doing. that's where i have gotten to a place that i want to be the change instead of expecting someone else to be the change

for me. if everybody would get to a place where they look at themselves in the mirror and say what can i do? i may live in other parts of the country but what can i do? i want you to look at yourselves and ask that question. when you ask that question i want you to understand that your time, talent, treasure is needed. there are organizations that have boots on the ground like project hood. you can go to project and they're right there boots on the ground in the chicago of it. that's what i would ask. i wouldn't expect anything out of our political culture or anything like that. >> bill: you are a strong guy. keep the faith, right? that's what they say. t.j. thank you for sharing your message and we'll stay in contact with you from chicago. thank you. >> julie: the world is mourning after the assassination of former japanese prime minister shinzo abe. he forged close ties to the u.s. one of the largest teachers

>> julie: there is growing outrage over a proposal for nation's largest teachers union to remove the word mother from their vocabulary in an effort to be more inclusive, the national education association is going with the title birthing parent instead. parents are growing frustrated with the push to add woke policies in schools. gee, i wonder why? nicole is a mom from rhode
6:58 am
island. you are a mother. i am a mother. a birthing parent. i don't know what the heck that means, do you? >> no. this is the don't say mom resolution. this is so obviously fueled by the transgender political machine mentally ill obsession with genitals and sex characteristics. they want to reclassify all human beings according to the secondary -- they are obsessed with. what's worse about this resolution it actually singles out gay people. it is saying if you are gay you can't be called mom or dad. saying if other people are gay other people can't be called mom and dad. that's not inclusive of anybody. it is so exclusively woke it excludes the people they say they want to protect. >> julie: i'm really glad you brought that up. here is the -- one of the largest teachers unions in the
6:59 am
country trying to be woke, liberal. you exclude lesbians, let's face it. married women having children where only one of the women can carry the baby but they are both considered mothers. here in the state of new york you legally have to be married in order for the child -- for your name to be on the birth certificate. you are considered equal parents, both mothers. you are leaving out your own people. a quote from the national education association -- using this language members need not worry how a board of education defines maternity leave mother or father. the language is an inclusive reflection of how lgbtq plus members build families. no it isn't. i went through why. they sent us a response the nea did to fox. i want to read a fraction of this. these values are fundamental
7:00 am
not just to nea union but as functioning a multi-racial democracy. what does that have to do with it? you are a mother or father. there is no middle of the road here. am i missing something? >> no. these -- they back themselves into the corners because they don't have consistent principles and change the definition of things whenever they want to serve their political purposes. i wait for hospitals near me to change its name from women and infants to chest feeders and offspring. who knows how far they will go with this, right? as they should if they want to be consistent with all of these absurd tease. what the teachers union should focus on are claw backs for their teachers who they are paid unconstitutional dues. if they want to spend money on things that matter they should spend money on giving back money to the teachers that they stole money from. >> julie: i know what teachers
7:01 am
unions should focus on, teaching. how about sticking to that? nicole, thank you for coming on. >> bill: hour two begins now. the new york city store clerk charged with murder after he stabbed and killed an attacker reportedly in self-defense has now been released from jail after a judge agreed to lower his bail. a brand-new hour begins now on friday morning. i'm bill hemmer. dana has the day off today. hello. >> julie: is it friday? i'm julie banderas. the city's far left prosecutor putting 61-year-old behind bars sending him to ryker's island and charging him with murder. it is sparking outrage. >> bill: the "new york post" calling for his immediate release. he was sent home last night and in ryker's island. no easy place. after his family raised the money to post a $50,000 bond.
7:02 am
new york mayor eric adams, former cop saying it's time for new yorkers and americans to start standing up for innocent people who follow the law. >> now it is time for the district attorney's office to do an investigation and a grand jury to go through the proceedings. it is obvious this gentleman was here providing for his family and someone came behind the counter and what i viewed was inappropriate. >> julie: david lee miller has the rest of this story. >> mayor adams is not alone. other new yorkers are saying that charging the convenience store clerk with second degree murder is wrong. the security camera video obtained by the "new york post" show him being attacked by a manang re about a dispute that he had with his girlfriend. simon was on parole for
7:03 am
assaulting a cop. alba stabbed simon five times. supporters say it was self-defense. alba was released from ryker's island after a judge lowered the bail to 50,000 dollars. his family put down $5,000 and employer was responsible for the additional money if he fails to show up in court. prosecutors for the office of the controversial manhattan d.a. initially asked that alba be held in lieu of half a million saying he was a flight risk and concerned he would not return from a trip to the dom incall republic where he was born. they changed course yesterday. d.a.'s office released a statement that reads in part that they are trying to strike a balance here between the facts of the case and what they call alba's international contacts. the reduced bail requires alba to surrender his passport. not to leave new york city and monitored electronically. mayor adams made a private visit to the support rallied support for alba.
7:04 am
>> i think it's time for new yorkers and americans to start standing up for people who follow the law and that's what i am going to do. >> the d.a.'s office says it is still investigating the case. if he is convicted of second degree murder, he faces up to 25 years in prison. julie. >> julie: doesn't seem right. david lee miller, thank you. >> bill: breaking news overseas. the world in shock after the assassination of the former japanese prime minister shinzo abe. a strong word of caution. the video is graphic. a lot of images. here is the moment when the gunman chose to strike. two shots fired from a home made gun, 41-year-old suspect tackled immediately. all this happening during a campaign event days before a
7:05 am
national election. shocking the nation with some of the world's tightest gun regulations. the gunman was spotted behind abe moments before the attack. 41, now in custody. the tributes pour in around the world. retired four star general jack keane remembers abe. >> he saw the united states as the indispensable leader to provide stability and security for the region but also felt that the allies in the region, the countries that were underneath this threat had to step up. >> bill: former president trump saying this a short time earlier quote. really bad news for the world. former japanese prime minister abe is dead, assassinated and killer captured and hopefully dealt with swiftly and harshly. they had a close relationship from the beginning. another man who knew abe well former secretary of state mike pompeo and mr. secretary,
7:06 am
welcome back to our program. tough news to take here. want to share a moment that we found four years ago in the summer of 2018, you with the former prime minister. he was a friend to america, sir. how do you remember him? >> bill, he certainly was. i am heartbroken this morning. heartbroken for he and his family and praying for them and all of the japanese people. he was relentless in putting them first, the japanese people first. but a dear friend of the united states. he knew that a successful united states and a good relationship with us made things better for his own people. i first met him in 2015 after he spoke to a joint session of congress when i was a junior member of congress from kansas. then god got to know him better as cia director and pushing back on chairman kim in north korea he was our best partner in helping us deliver an outcome for the world to keep our country safer.
7:07 am
he was a good friend. he and the president had a great relationship and always so kind to me. the world is far worse of today without prime minister abe astride how we can get good economic outcomes for the people of japan and he wanted it in america, too. >> bill: you met so many people from around the world and you know who is on our side and who is against us. he clearly was on our side. again, what did he see in america other than the security perhaps that we offered his own people and government, what did he see in the american ideas that drew him so affectionately toward our country? >> look, he was wonderful. he was quiet but as tough as nails, bill. i think he appreciated that america was a ram bunkous place with a thriving economy and one
7:08 am
that welcomed japanese investment and americans who would invest in japan. he could see we would be reliable economic partners and security partners. he also admired the different parts of our country. we'd joke about our homes and how they were difficult rintd and japanese beef and kansas beef and who had the better stuff. he was a decent man who understood the world and all of its evil and all of its realities and he worked relentlessly to deliver good outcomes. he loved this place. he loved america, too. he knew that together japan and america could do really important things for our own people and indeed for the world. >> bill: i don't remember specifically if you were in japan for the g20 summit around the time when your administration under the leadership of president trump took a different tack with north korea and kim jung un. for a while it worked. >> he was all for it and a
7:09 am
great partner. we struggled more with the south korean government. but japan understood we had to deliver sharp sanctions against the north koreans and work to find a diplomatic path to lead to more security. we knew the real threat was the chinese communist party and if we could get a better outcome in north korea it would facilitate our ability to push back against a ccp in the years ahead. >> bill: you remember the last time you saw him or talked to him perhaps? >> i do. it was a private conversation that he and i had. he was no longer the prime minister. he was thinking about when he was assassinated he was campaigning on behalf of the things he believed in. he never left his role as trying to help the japanese people find a better path forward and this is what we were talking about. the former prime minister and
7:10 am
how he might approach and still be an important participant in japanese life to make life better for them and still be a good friend of ours. >> bill: that country is in shock. i'm sure you can understand that. a homemade gun was used as i mentioned a moment ago. mike pompeo, thank you for your recollections today and we'll speak again very soon. thank you, sir. >> have a great weekend, sir. >> julie: republicans are calling out google accusing the tech giants of alleged bias following a study showing that g-mail marks almost 70% of right wing messages as spam compared to just 10% of left leaning emails. hillary vaughn joins us live from capitol hill. >> good morning. that study is from researchers at north carolina state university. they looked at how different email services filter out spam and looked at outlook, yahoo and g-mail. their research found that
7:11 am
g-mail's default filters flagged more emails from republicans as spam more than it did emails from democrats. the researchers say once those email accounts were in use and users weighed in on preferences marking emails of spam directly g-mall spam filter adjusted to user preferences but other researches into rnc fundraisers is being impacted too. big tech's bias is out of control. every single month for seven months in a row google has systematically attacked the rnc's email fundraising during important donation days at the end of the month. emails go from strong in box delivery to 0%. they estimate it cost the party $2 billion in donations since 2019. google is pushing back on claims there is any political bias in their spam filters but they are coming up with a pilot program to provide more
7:12 am
transparency into the process. google spokesperson telling fox in a statement this. we want g-mail to provide a great experience for all users including minimizing unwanted email but don't filter emails based on political affiliation. we asked the sec to advise us on a potential pilot for political bulk senders and provide more information and let users protect their inboxes. 20 senate republicans introducing a bill to ban email providers from using algorithms to sort emails sent by federal political campaigns. >> julie: thank you so much. >> bill: 12 minutes past the hour now. earlier today we got a jobs number for the month of june. stronger than expected. that's good news. you've got issues of inflation out there, you don't know what the fed is going to do. what it means for workers and what it means for inflation and
7:13 am
consumers, you at home watching today. >> julie: absolutely. meanwhile first son hunter biden showing his face at the white house as we learn the u.s. sent emergency oil reserves to a chinese firm linked to hunter. >> bill: new details in the love triangle murder suspect now under arrest. how investigators finally tracked her down. >> i'm telling you old-fashioned police work. they learned that she signed -- showed a picture and signed the books there under these aliases and that really started the trail of narrowing down a path on caitlin armstrong. it lets you refinance up to 100% of your home's value to take out an average of $60,000 cash. 25% more cash than you get at a bank or credit union. pay big bills, make home improvements, or just have cash on hand in these times of rising prices.

>> bill: video sent to us from capitol hill. the former lawyer for the white house under donald trump has arrived on the hill for his interview behind closed doors. negotiations went on to make this happen. he has spoken to the committee prior. so this will be his second visit. it won't be public and we'll see eventually based on leaks, etc., as to how the testimony goes today. it has begun and we want to share it with you on the hill a moment ago. >> she dyed her hair brown and cropped her hair shorter to
7:20 am
shoulder length and had a bandage on her nose where she claimed it was from a surf board indents days before. >> julie: kaitlin armstrong is back on u.s. soil being held on 3.5 million dollars bond. she is facing first degree murder charges for allegedly shooting and killing a love rival. then going on the run. authorities picked her up in costa rica after more than a six-week search. let's bring in attorney misty maris. thank you for coming on. let's get to the facts. the evidence is stacked against her pretty strong. likely she will raise a heat of passion defense that would lessen the charge to murder term. it comes down to premeditation. how do you see it panning out? >> absolutely. this is the type of case we'll see go the distance. this case will likely go to trial because the inquiry is going to be about her intent. murder one that requires
7:21 am
premeditation. what is the jury going to be asked to look at. look at her actions leading up to the murder and also going to look at her actions after the murder. which we know is a 43-day manhunt. for murder 2 she has to show it was in the heat of passion. now, that requires showing sudden passion. so some of the facts of this case will make that a tough argument. she traveled to find the victim. she had a gun. she after the fact she had a fake passport and changed her appearance. she was escaping and took multiple flights. it will be a tough row to hoe. my guess is her attorneys will craft a narrative to fit into the murder two. the penalty is up to 20 years as opposed to 99 for murder one. >> she drove for an hour and a half with a gun and fled using a fake passport and murder two
7:22 am
requires sudden passion with no reasonable time to cool off. here that drive is obviously going to be considered a cooling off period to make it harder for armstrong to downgrade to murder two. what do you think the likelihood is of them succeeding in the heat of passion defense? >> it's really going to come down to what comes into that courtroom during trial because it is just going to be a lesser offense. remember, it doesn't mean an acquittal it just means a lesser grade of murder. a lesser penalty. the facts as we know them, unless something different comes out, it will be a really uphill battle. that drive constitutes the cooling off period. there is case law that was recently affirmed in texas on this point. so it will be really difficult under the facts as we know them pursuant to the arrest affidavit. >> julie: you know they won't come out and say she didn't do
7:23 am
it. they won't deny it. just a matter of how they try to reduce the charges. thank you for coming on. >> bill: stunning story, two parents out of florida facing criminal charges. 9-month-old daughter overdosed on fentanyl. how did that deadly drug end up in that child's hands? and the white house has a new message for americans worried about soaring inflation. the economy, they say, has never been better historically. we'll play the clip and talk to austan and steve coming up next, our friday money team.

>> julie: florida couple is behind bars after their 9-month-old daughter stopped breathing after ingesting fentanyl. phil keating is live in miami with the latest on this disturbing investigation. good morning, phil. >> good morning.
7:29 am
disturbing indeed. now the mother of the father, the grandmother of his three young children is seeking emergency custody of all of them for the safety of the little ones. jacksonville sheriff's office incident report says the mother went to a clinic to get her prescription of methadone on july 1. while in the car, burnett noticed her 9 mo*eld was not breathing. the 9-month-old was transported to a children's hospital in the jacksonville area where a urine test revealed the baby tested positive for fentanyl. the father said he crushed up a xanax pill and snorted it. it was laced with fentanyl. whether the baby was given the fentanyl on purpose to get it to stop crying or go to sleep or got it from contact tracing like via the baby's bottle which was handled by the parents still not clear.
7:30 am
the parents are facing felony child neglect charges and burnett the mother was already on probation for a previous charge of child neglect in 2019. at the hospital the baby was given multiple doses of narcan and further urine tests showed the parents tested positive for fentanyl. the mother was so concerned about the welfare of these three little kids that back in november this is the grandmother, she hired a private investigator to get evidence to quote help the children. the other two kids are 7 years old and 2 1/2. bond for each of these parents right now is $100,000. julie. >> julie: phil keating. very sad. thank you. >> do you think it's possible that your plan just is not popular with the american people right now? >> i don't think it's that our plan is not popular with the
7:31 am
american people. american people are feeling the high costs. we understand what they're feeling. because -- because when you look at inflation, when we look at where we are economically, and we are in a strong -- we are a stronger economically than we have been in history. >> bill: that last comment there got some attention. that's the story from the white house as americans face 40-year high inflation, $5 for a gallon of gas and the looming threat of a recession. one business writer calling the white house description pure gas lighting. want to bring in our friday money team. austan goolsbee worked for barack obama and stephen worked for president trump. 372,000 blew away the estimate. 11 million jobs available today. if you want a job, you can find one and you can work. austan, this comment. we're stronger economically than we have been in history. how does that square with the
7:32 am
facts? >> it sounds like an overstatement to me that she added on at the end. i think this jobs number. if somebody asked her and she wanted to clarify what were you referring to, it is pretty astounding to have the unemployment rate down to 3.6% and still be adding 372,000 jobs a month. if you go back to 2019, which was the last time we had the unemployment rate that low, we are adding triple the number of jobs per month as we were in 2019. so there is a component of the economy, the labor market, which is as strong as anyone has seen on record. but it's an overstatement because there is also weak parts of the economy that consumer spending slowing down and we have inflation. >> bill: she went on to say 8.7 million new jobs created.
7:33 am
those jobs disappeared during the pandemic and just came back. steve, what about the comment? was it a slight omission of the facts? how do you see it? >> i tell you who does not agree with that statement. by the way, the president made a similar statement just a couple of days earlier about how strong the economy was. and the fact is news polling shows that more than 8 out of 10 americans think the economy is headed in the wrong direction. a lot of reports are showing americans have to borrow on their credit cards to pay essential bills. a lot of americans have to cut back on the essentials because of the rising prices. what the report showed today, there was job growth and austan is right. a good jobs market. the real problem i think that americans are facing, bill, we saw this again in the report today, inflation is 8 1/2%, wages 5%. month after month -- 14 straight months of this where the price of everything you buy
7:34 am
is higher than the increase in your paycheck. it means people are getting poorer over time and can't afford things and have to go more in debt which is i think a big problem coming up. >> bill: let me jump in there. she talked about feeling in that sound bite. we're feeling. here is how people are feeling according to the polling. fox news polling shows how do you feel about the economy? 57% say they feel poorly. only 25% say only fair on that feeling chart. another one for you. what's the most important agenda item out there? inflation is chalking up at 41%. there is an ongoing debate among folks like you, austan and steve, whether or not we in a recession or headed that way. or whether or not we can find a soft landing. austan, how do you see that today as you characterize it? >> well, i think the thing with the polling, we've had the weirdest splitting of opinion that we've seen really ever where large majorities are
7:35 am
saying they think the economy is in bad shape. when asked about their personal situation it looks quite strong. so we have a view of the macroeconomy that's different than the personal economy view. on recession, the fed is raising rates as fast as they've raised them in recent memory. so recession is a possible danger. if we get jobs numbers like the ones we saw today or that we've seen in the last three months, they will stop talking about recession because this is not a recession. it is not a recession if you are adding nearly 400,000 jobs. >> bill: americans feel awful at the gas station. >> i don't buy that, that americans. when i talk to people, i don't see that that people feel like their own life is going that well when they pay so much at the gas station and grocery store. the big issue right now is how to bring the inflation down? austan, it is not like this
7:36 am
inflation just appeared out of nowhere. it was 1 1/2% when trump left office. 8 1/2% now. i really do believe, bill. it was because of that massive 3 trillion dollars of spending last year. as we sit here right now a report in the "washington post" the biden administration is negotiating with joe manchin and want to spend another half trillion dollars. we have to stop the spending. >> bill: we get an inflation -- i think we get an inflation number next week and see where it brings us. i have said, kudlow will be on this later. a lot of these numbers are dipping but not dropping. gas prices dipping, not dropping, commodity prices dipping, not dropping. watch that. thank you both. have a great weekend. >> thank you, bill. >> i'm asking -- one thing -- [inaudible] >> julie: a parolee stuck

7:45 am
was left on his computer four years ago, then he is going to be more public. >> you wouldn't want to be providing another news hook about hunter biden again. >> julie: we're the only ones talking about it. other networks aren't. they think isn't it wonderful, father and son. >> that's the only thing i could show is that they aren't concerned about anyone getting in trouble over any of this no matter what they do or how often we see him publicly. >> bill: we had this clip yesterday. i want to set it up in case anybody missed it. climate change activists on the 495, the beltway around washington, d.c. and stopped the entire lane of traffic and a man got out of a truck and he said i'm on parole and if i don't get to my job i go back to jail for decades. they didn't move. here is how that happened? >> if i don't make -- i lose my job. if you are interested in --
