"the evening edit" starts right now. ♪. elizabeth: welcome to the show. you're watching the fox business network. we have a new recession red flag. barclays are reporting consumers cut in half spending on travel, restaurants, and home repairs. we'll stay on that developing story for you. also a growing backlash across the nation against weak on crime d.a.s and judges. voters are getting fed up. they ask how is it compassionate to release known felons back on the street to commit more crimes against innocent people? fox news dan springer in seattle with the latest. reporter: sentencing a gang member who shot into a crowd hitting five people in seattle the judge seemed more upset with
6:03 pm
society than the gang members. >> struggle with gang violence matters to me and our entire community shares responsibility for that struggle. reporter: the same judge allowed two teenagers charged with a string of takeover armed robberies one which was pistol-whipped. they cut off ankle monitors, robbed a pot shop, robbed and killed an employee. a homeless man accused of breaking into a house, trying to fight his way into his son, was not even required to post bail. this is big push toward bail reform and relaxed sentencing guidelines there. is a counter effort in harris county texas, the d.a. who happens to be a democrat is trying to get her prosecuting attorneys to run for judge positions. liz? elizabeth: dan springer, thanks for your report. this is happening across the country. mark green joins us, fraternal
6:04 pm
order of police vice president. he is joe gamaldi. great to have you both on. congressman, we have to deal with this how concerned are you about violent protests with the supreme court releasing opinions potentially tomorrow and thursday, on 18 cases including abortion, likely putting it back to the states? when do you think? >> i'm very concerned. obviously the communities where the judges lived have shown they're not prepared to protect the justices. we've seen already an attempt made on justice kavanaugh's life. there will be riots all across the country on this. they're prepared. we heard they're ready to do this. this is really bad. it is tragic. they're trying to influence the court to stop this decision. that is the whole point of it. elizabeth: it is illegal to do it. where is merrick garland on it still? congressman? >>, i missed your question there? elizabeth: where is ag garland
6:05 pm
on the illegal protests? >> well, he doesn't seem to have an opinion about it. he would rather go after school boards and parents protesting at school boards than people threatening the lives of our justices. he seems to be absent from his job. elizabeth: joe, they're putting up barricades around the supreme court right now. they're doing fencing. joe, we're already halfway through 2022. already five major cities, los angeles, d.c., baltimore, milwaukee, atlanta, they're on pace to surpass their steep 2021 homicide totals. how are weak on crime policies compassionate to an innocent public? >> well, i tell you what we've seen with these policies. it is creating a culture of lawlessness in this country. nobody is accountable for their actions. there is no consequences anymore we're seeing it played out in the urban communities every day. over the weekend we had dozens of people shot in chicago.
6:06 pm
mass shooting in washington, d.c. a 15-year-old murdered and officer was shot. robberies there are up 34%. it is playing out across america. seattle murders up 55%. portland, 21%. new orleans, 36%. the list goes own and on. we have the clown prosecutors to thank for it. nobody is worse than chesa boudin, thankfully he got outed. next up, george gascon. you're up next on the chopping block. he cut a sweetheart deal to a violent felon. selling in potential after firearm. what idiot could give someone like that probation? when they were out murdered officer paralysis and santana in cold blood. if d.a. gascon had a integrity he would resign for what he has
6:07 pm
done. history will judge his cowardice. elizabeth: the known felon was out on a me deal. he was arrested for illegal gun possession. they're blaming weak on crime george gascon. the left was gearing up gotcha moments catching cops behaving badly on body cams this video is coming in. we see the courage and danger cops face every day. dramatic moment, 28-year-old suspect with a cop doing a traffic stop, he charges at him with a huge axe. before he is shot dead. this is what they deal with every day. crime is getting out of control. >> the left doesn't seem to understand the difference between the good guy and the bad guy. they want to defund police while putting criminals back on the street. that is why d.a.s like out in san francisco, positive recalls are happening. america had enough.
6:08 pm
just like with the education transparency stuff in virginia. people are waking up to liberal policies what they're doing, destroying our country. i reiterate, they don't know the good guy from the bad guy. they give $85 billion worth of stuff with the taliban. they want to cut a deal with russia while there is war in ukraine to actually build a nuclear reactor in iran, defund the police. these guys, they're upside down. they don't know right from wrong. they don't know the good guy for the bad guy. elizabeth: we'll show hundreds gathering in california for what joe was talking about for the vigil of roush.for two california police officers. hillary clinton says there will be frightening losses to republicans because they keep taking quote, extreme positions on things like defunding the police.
6:09 pm
they need to stop that she is claiming the nation is on the verge of losing democracy to the gop. take that on. >> well, i'll tell you, i think a lot of people are waking up, just how big after loser defund the police. shocker, people want police officers in their community, right? anybody with a brain should understand that. but you know what? the american people are not stupid. they're pissed off. they're tired of this woke agenda and the fact that these revolving door criminal justice policies are ruining their communities for a generation. we want safe streets. we want to feel comfortable walking our kids to school. i'm telling you right now, liz, there will be a reckoning at the polls. the american people are fed up with it. they want law and order in their communities. they will let people that will give it to them. elizabeth: what is disturbing what joe is saying congressman, crime is hitting u.s. cities hard. they locked down, shut down americans. then they defunded right as borden letting the border
6:10 pm
collapse as drugs pour into u.s. cities. we see dozens of gangs in chicago. the number of terrorists on the fbi watch list caught at border is passing fiscal 2021. you see that. you see texas governor abbott dealing with this. we're going to watch this. watch. >> this is the president's job, national security and our national security is at risk because of all of these terrorists who are on the watch list who may have come across the border. the president of the united states is failing in his most fundamental duty and that is to keep our nation safe. elizabeth: and so, i want to roll to this. watch cnn van jones whacker is wrong with the democrat party. watch this. >> listen, we're in danger of becoming a party of very high and very low. if you pull out the working class, you have people well-educated and people well-off. those people talk funny, latin
6:11 pm
x. i never met a latin x. i never met a bipoc, weird stuff these highly-educated people say is bizarre. nobody talks that way at barbershop, grocery store, salon, the community center. that is how we talk now. elizabeth: are democrats reading the polls, congressman? gallop is saying americans are more concerned about crime than they afternoon have been in the last six years. so why are they so out to lunch and not reading, listening to people on the street are telling them via the polls? >> yeah. they're just doubling down no one seems to understand why. hillary clinton herself says it fails to common sense. you said earlier she said democracy would be extinct. i think democrat party will be extinct, americans have had it, whether it's the border, whether it's the criminal situation.
6:12 pm
it is just, i hope, i hope they get trounced and the radical socialists woke people running their party are thrown to the curb. and hopefully we can have you know real freedom joe congressman green, joe gamaldi, thanks for coming on. more details about hunter biden's ex-wife book. not just about money. messaging mayhem. president biden and jennifer granholm contradict each other on the trip to saudi arabia. white house tries another trial balloon, downplaying recession as transition. saying it is not inevitable when ceos and wall street economists warn it is coming. we'll break that down next with tomas philipson on "the evening edit". >> majority -- president biden: majority are not saying that. don't make things up. you sound like a republican politician. i'm joking. that was a joke.

interest rates will cause some pain for you and companies are getting set to pass that along in the form of even mower higher prices. edward lawrence is in washington with more. edward. reporter: liz, republicans are saying that the president is living near a river in egypt, he is living in denial. the president continues to say he is overseeing a very strong economy. the president says likelihood of recession is not inevitable. there also might be some more stopgap measures he says to try to bring down gas prices, specifically a pause of the national gas tax. >> [inaudible] >> rebate cards? president mt. that's part. president biden: that is part of the whole operation. reporter: national fast tax is only 18 cents. removing it will cost $20 billion in revenue if it pauses through the fiscal year.
6:18 pm
kevin brady said the president did all of this to himself. >> unfortunately recession is inevitable because president biden made it inevitable. not only worse does he not have any plan, but this is the same plan he is using for a year-and-a-half. he wants more spending. reporter: president joe biden will be back a few hours here in the white house for the vacation he had at his delaware beach house. back to you. elizabeth: edward lawrence thank you very much. we have former white house council of economic advisors tomas philipson. the optics are weird. he is doing four-day work weeks. he is going to his beach house talking about inflation. secretary buttigieg may crack down, fine, personize airlines for flight cancellations after buttigieg's flight was canceled the day after he met with airline executives. what do you think is going on here? >> the white house is confusing what is going on quite a bit.
6:19 pm
so the inflation is poorly perceived. in fact your viewers are better at forecasting inflation than the d.c. establishment was. if you look at inflation expectations by the population it's much more closely aligned with actual inflation than what the federal bureaucracies in d.c. have said and there is still inflation expectations are 2% higher than the bureaucracies are predicting essentially. that is worrisome. it feeds into consumption. consumer confidence as can sequence is lowest on record. elizabeth: yeah. >> that translates into consumption. consumption has dipped. retail sales dipped last week. consumption is 70% of our economy. it is spelling recession all over the place right now. elizabeth: why isn't the white house grabbing what you're saying, thomas? near is the thing, even the faa has a worker shortages. there are worker shortages at
6:20 pm
bars, companies, restaurants, small businesses nationwide. there are two job openings for everyone moment i had unemployed worker. now capital riots. they have a new narrative. they say presession just a transition. >> prices are unacceptablably high. where we are in the economy is in a transition. i spoke to ceos the past week from sectors across the economy. >> they're planning around a recession. >> they're planning around transitions in our economy. elizabeth: you know what? tomas, cut it out. the white house needs to cut it out with the rhetoric, knock it off with the political flannel. this is not a transition. they're talking a about a downturn. inflation took off right before russia's war in ukraine, way before that even. we know that obama officials larry summers, steve rattner,
6:21 pm
jason furman even said, san francisco fed said warned massive 6 trillion spending in two years, fed money printing did trigger inflation. what do you say? >> yeah. i think the transition they're talking about is also from fossil fuels, green energy and i think it is very, very misleading. the whole reason we have a climate policy period is because green energy is more costly than fossil fuels. if it wasn't, we wouldn't need to have a climate policy. everyone would go to green energy. the market would adopt it much quicker than any government trying to push us into a more costly energy source. they're pushing us into even costlier energy source than the costly fossil fuel on record right now. that is very, very worrisome. i think the white house doesn't even themselves believe in their energy policy because at the same time, they're regulating away the fossil fuel industry. they're asking ceos to
6:22 pm
basically to bo out and pump more. it is just, they're trying to raise and cut supply at the same time. elizabeth: tomas, here is the other issue. you need to look at the producer price index, right? feedstock of inflation, that is the wholesale prices companies have to pay. when you raise rates, rules and regulations the companies pass it along in the form of higher inflation. when you look what is going on, rate hikes will not produce rice in rates and economy. collapse in partisanship, nancy pelosi on and other side of the republicans this is going on since the early '90s. watch republican senator ben sasse on this. >> they have two moderates. why is it that joe manchin and krysten sinema get so many vial
6:23 pm
threats from their own party? their party has no room for intellectual diversity although they claim diversity is one of their fundamental touchstones? elizabeth: you shouldn't call them progressives. there is nothing progressive about wiping out your moderate bench. that they should be called militant. >> thank god we didn't have "build back better," what would have been the case if "build back better" got into place. this inflation would be tiny compared to what we've seen on that plan. elizabeth: thank you, joe manchin and krysten sinema. tomas phillipson, thanks so much. good to see you. this story, we're staying on it. white house messaging is all over the map. energy secretary jennifer granholm is contradicting president biden, contradicting each other on the trip to saudi arabia, talking to the saudi arabians after they don't talk to u.s. energy after they destroyed the biggest supply chain of all, our u.s. oil and

resources, along with transportation committee, he is congressman bruce westerman. congressman, great to have you on. thanks for joining us. have you seen what is going on with the messaging on the president's trip to saudi arabia because it seems like there is chaos even on this? biden energy secretary granholm says the president will meet with the crown prince of saudi arabia next month. the president says he is not explicitly meeting with him. it is part of a broader international meeting. how can they not even get this one straight as they're not talking to u.s. oil? >> good to be with you, liz. i think it is metaphorical of their own energy plan. the left doesn't know what the right hand is doing. they have an itinerary, they don't have a plan to get there. they don't know what they will do when they get there. i'm not surprised. this is what we come to respect for this administration. this illustrates how haphazard they go a long way, how little of real plan that they have.
6:29 pm
they have got an agenda, zero carbon, neutrality, all this stuff but they have no reasonable, rational plan to get there. what the american public needs is a plan how we produce reliable, affordable, the cleanest energy on the planet, do it in a way that doesn't drive prices through the roof, that doesn't affect peoples everyday lives and pile on inflation. elizabeth: let's watch the president climate czar. by the way, let me back up. we're going to talk about this instead. we're going to watch biden economic advisor jared bernstein. he is claiming that the president is the best president in history on basically rocketing gas prices. you're going to see the treasury secretary admit to a drop in oil production and refinery capacity. you will see representative steve scalise and hbo's bill
6:30 pm
maher way weighing? >> the president is doing more than every president i've worked for. >> what happened the production has gone down. refinery capacity has declined in the united states and oil production has declined. >> the natural resources had a committee hearing on big cats, that's right. amidst this gas crisis, that's crushing american families, taking money out of their pockets every single week. >> in 2020 biden said no more drilling on federal lands. >> no keystone pipeline. >> when people get off fossil fuels before they have a replacement they wind up going back to even worse fossil fuels. we said saudi arabia go [bleep] yourself. you killed a journalist. now biden is going over there hat in hand begging them for oil. elizabeth: biden has been undercutting u.s. energy, congressman. at least seven executive orders, multiple initiatives, undercutting, cracking down on u.s. energy. your committee, democrats are
6:31 pm
talking about cats? >> that seemed to be the most important subject they could come up with how we regulate big cats, next show people watching during the pandemic. we want to talk about how do we produce more energy? how do we lower costs? how do we create more american jobs? how do we use energy as a national security weapon. how do we help our friends across the world, all of those important issues that should be coming before our committee, as the whip mentioned the topic, headliner bill was big cats. you can't make it up. i hate to wish my life away, but i can't wait to see the american voters speak in november. hopefully we get some common sense back. elizabeth: house democrats on your own committee cracking down on disinformation, anything negative about the green energy like climate czars gina mccarthy, john kerry are doing. are they going to crack down on the president saying this? watch this. president biden: i grew up in a

hunter biden was emotionally abusive husband. it is beyond alcohol and drug addiction, mollie. >> we've known for years hunter biden is a broken individual. we know that he has major problems with drug addiction, makes sexually unwise decisions. hearing this memoir from his ex-wife, we learned from her perspective at least, he was abusive, belittling, mean. comment how she wasn't intelligent as he was. all this is very sad. the reason it is interesting to us in this country, not because of these problems or how salacious they are because we know hunter biden is extremely close with his father, involved in a family business in which hunter biden sells access, he gets money for his access to his father. so those details keep coming out suggest this is not not a good individual to have in charge of
