6:09 pm
monarchy is the fact that the monarchy has largely kept out of politics. this is a good thing and i think that is important for, for king charles ii to always bear in mind because he has intervened politically on occasions as prince charles, environmental issues, immigration matters, for example, monarch as a sovereign he has completely to avoid that. he has pledged to do so it has said to be as well the queen without a doubt, she was just an incredible palepy -- example for any future monarch. i hope king charles will follow closely in the footsteps of queen elizabeth ii. this is the end of the second liz beat ann era. new era with king charles. there is tremendous goodwill among the british public for the new king. liz: and commonwealth. the commonwealth. it is canada, australia,

6:17 pm
legislative victory lap on behalf of the biden administration, touting the so-called inflation reduction act and other parts of the president's economic agenda. the backdrop of today's speech is also significant. it is the facility where ford makes its electric f-150 lightning. yellen spoke about the president's climate goals and the administration's push to get more americans behind the wheels of electric vehicles. in doing so she said we got to get off of oil and gas. >> we will rid ourselves from our current dependence on fossil fuels and the whims of autocrats like putin. reporter: as you can imagine the foss till fossil fuel industry didn't take too kindly to those comments especially at a time americans are struggling to avoid high energy costs and europe is the on the brink of and energy crisis. the american petroleum institute says this kind of rhetoric is unhelpful and unrealistic. american producers are poised to
6:18 pm
meet growing demand for oil and natural gas but we need a comprehensive energy policy from this administration that lays the foundation for long-term growth. yellen is also advocating what she has coined modern supply-side econmics. that is essentially the opposite of the reagan era term. she is calling for taxing corporations and more government spending. liz. liz: grady trimble. thank you so much. joining us now, congressman french hill from house financial services along with economist nick loris of c3 solutions. congressman, your reaction to janet yellen. it sounds like she wants to wipe out tens of millions of u.s. jobs. is it to churilous to say she didn't skype or zoom the speech, she flew there? >> liz, it is depressing because janet yellen had a distinguished career in macroeconomics. she is the former chair of the federal reserve board and she is absolutely spewing nonsense in
6:19 pm
her speech at detroit. it is completely unrealistic to say what she said and it is misleading to the american people to think that we can snap our fingers and go from our important use of fossil fuels to renewable energy. she is completely wrong about it. i know she knows better than that. she knows this is an evolution airy process that has to be driven by the market, not a radical revolutionary process done in the salons of brooklyn. liz: too, what the congressman is saying, nick, this phrase is now coming back. it is being called flatten the curve on energy usage. it is not just about the pandemic. now it is about using energy. watch the president of the european commission. we broke this story last night. watch this. >> this is what is expensive because in these peak demands the expensive gas comes into the market. so what we have to do is flatten the curve and avoid the peak
6:20 pm
demands. we will propose a mandatory target for reducing electricity use at peak hours and we will work very closely with the member-states to achieve this. liz: nick, are we going to have climate shutdowns now? we have states already moving to regulate local energy use by seizing control of people's smart thermostats like google's nest to set the air-conditioning level, even locking them out of their thermostats. moving to regulate how much water we use too. what do you think? >> yeah it is incredibly frustrating. just the messaging on energy itself because energy is so important to human flourishing and it is such a critical input to just about everything we make and everything we do. it helps us live our lives better. it helps the economy run. it is to think of energy as some sort of a bad is very problematic from an economic sense and then again to force consumers to ration their energy use especially elderly
6:21 pm
populations who may not be able to live at higher temperatures and so this is a real threat to human life. you know consumers can make those decisions on their own. i have no problem with utilities paying people to turn off their power if they opt to choose into it but when governments and companies force that decision on consumers, that is when things run awry. liz: congressman this is happening in california. it is the fifth largest economy in the world ahead of france and india. it cannot keep the lights on, rationing energy. going fully green electric downed utility wires charged with killing hundreds of people wiping entire towns off the map. final word. >> final word california's energy policy is wrong just like the policy in germany is wrong. we need and all of the above policy to make the transition. trying to go renewable, you don't have adequate battery storage, don't have transmission, leads to disaster
6:22 pm
what we're seeing in california. liz: nick, give you final word, 10 second. >> the same all of the above. renewables are not bad but we need conventional fuels. we need nuclear power. we need to fix the supply bottlenecks with more transmission lines, more pipelines, how we get reliable affordable energy to consumers. liz: got it. new details on hunter biden exploiting access to the obama white house to get lucrative business deals with america's adversaries like china. plus the mayor of memphis slams weak-on-crime prosecutors for letting out of prison early a convicted felon who went on a shooting rampage. up next joe gamaldi from the fraternal order of police. >> if you do the crime you do the time and we need to get back to this truth in sentencing, keeping people who are violent criminals locked up and off the streets. ♪.

vehicle. is he expected to be arraigned on first-degree murder charges friday morning. elizabeth, back to you. liz: thank you very much for your reporting. joining us joe gamaldi, the fraternal order of police. i have can imagine you're upset about this. mayor of memphis said four of the citizens would still be alived with the felon was not released early. he was arrested on attempted murder charges t was downgraded to assault. he served 11 months of a three-year prison sentence. your thoughts on this. >> it is refreshing to see a mayor actually speak out against these soft on crime policies that have led to this horrific tragedy. that is why we're seeing 16 american cities experience their highest murder rate on record last year. memphis was one of them. i wish some of these other elected officials would grow a spine to speak out like this man. liz: you wonder, why aren't they sued, why are they not charged with aiding abetting assaulting innocent victims. >> the problem in these cases, liz, they give prosecutors prosecutorial discretion.
6:29 pm
they give the judges this discretion. so they can't come back and sue them for these things. they have complete immunity when it comes to this. take example for this monster, liz, he was arrested back in 2021, april, for attempted first-degree murder. he got the charge downgraded. only did 11 months in jail for that. he comes out and does this i, how much longer as we as americans going to allow this to go on? how many more people have to die? how many more families need to be ruined before we put a stop to this? liz: crime hit the suburbs, residents of lakeview neighborhood are terrified. a woman was robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight. she was dragged to the ground. one of the men was pointing a gun at her. democrat-run cities like los angeles, new york city, chicago, philadelphia, minneapolis, they are less safe today than they were in 2019. democrats spent the last few years downplaying crime after downplaying riots and fighting to make things easier to get out
6:30 pm
of prison violent criminals. >> well, i'll tell you liz, the democrats better buckle up because violent crime will be front and center during the midterm elections. all polling data shows this issue is paramount for voters going into this. so that is why we're seeing massive ad buys reminding people how bad crime is, we're up to 30-year high in homicides. it is, i've been a police officer for 17 years. it is baffling to me that we have politicians that aren't supporting policies that will make things better. in fact they're doing the opposite. they are still supporting bail reform and defunding the police. liz: we have conservative group, unveiled to your point a new ad campaign, citizens for sanity. they're saying for nearly 30 years crime was falling in the united states but now the national murder rate is at its highest in 25 years. you know, we've seen the images, subway riders pushed on to train tracks, stores looted in broad daylight, senior citizens beaten. now it is come to the, area

and washington, d.c., and now that they're experiencing just a small taste of what we had to deal with the last two years, they go ahead and they're crying. they're whining about what is going on. the reality is all they have to do is walk across a few blocks to 1600 pennsylvania avenue and the cause of the problem is joe biden and his administration. that is who they should be complaining about. liz: every city, every city, every state is now a border city or border state. why? because of crime and drugs pouring into those regions. what is wrong, where is the wake-up call? we've got the mayor of chicago saying she will go to d.c. to talk about the illegal immigrant buses coming in from the border states but the mayors of chicago, d.c., new york, still do not directly to your point, they don't directly address biden's border crisis. we've got 277 terrorists on the watch list caught at all ports of entry. that is more than last year. it is just a generation after 9/11 which we're just about to commemorate this sunday.
6:49 pm
it is striking that new york city mayor is silent on that in biden's border crisis. why is he silent on that? >> it's, it's heart breaking to see what is going on. we know that as you said every city, every state is a border state because fentanyl is now killing more people than breast cancer. we know that in places like arizona in the last four years we've gone from fentanyl being involved in 4% of the deaths, overdose deaths to more than half of them. and so you know, this sunday will be 21 years since the heartbreaking tragedy of 9/11. at that time americans said they would never forget yet the joe biden administration has only taken two years to not only forget but open the doors to terrorists and -- coming into our country. liz: have these mayors forgotten it too? >> apparently they have. those who forget history are condemned to repeat. when you see these numbers, four or five times as many people on the terror watch list apprehended this year than participated in 9/11, liz you

know this, that is the people we know about. what about all the people slipping through the desert, walking through 115 degrees smuggling in drugs, coming in from all these other foreign countries what harm do they mean to the united states. these are people we know aabout. the proverbial tip of the iceberg above the water. underneath there is a huge rock that is waiting to crash on our shores and -- liz: we hope not. >> people are going to die, people are going to die as a result of joe biden and kamala harris and secretary mayorkas' failure to secure our border. liz: mark brnovich, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, liz. liz: florida governor ron desantis now firing back at california governor newsom's attacks. we have gop strategist ford o'connell with reaction on that next on "the evening edit". >> gavin newsom it is pretty simple, 2020 and 2021 were the first years in california's history that it ever had a loss of population. hundreds of thousands of people including a lot of the high earners who give all this tax

staying on this, california's power grid under severe strain from historic heatwave and transitioning to green energy watch florida governor desantis buyback against governor newsom attacks on him. >> i hear people tripping about florida from california worried about florida, they can't even keep the power on california. are you kidding me? someone told me they'll be able once all the people who want to move then they maybe they will have adequate power. liz: what you think? >> he's right. but every quantifiable measure, california under gavin newsom is a disaster. significantly worse off california than it was before covid. the reason is with respect to the energy crisis is because gavin newsom refuses to admit the obvious, renewable energy is

incapable of replace in conventional fuel is endangering the lives of california. liz: california still has rolling blackouts but doubling down going fully totally electric but no one is talking about this. downed electric transmission wires are to blame from massive wildfires in california killing more than 100 people wiping entire towns off the map so how can he not talking about that? >> liberal you to lick groupthink. the democrats don't want to admit the you topic idea of renewables being the solution will be the answer and that's why you are endangering the lives of californians because they don't want to admit the obvious. the only way to sustain the power in california generating an economy of that size is by going with fossil fuels and nuclear power but it goes against liberal groupthink because renewables are the future and it's destroying the country. liz: we got california, fifth
6:57 pm
largest economy in the world, bigger than india and france and now rationing energy? the power grid was already struggling to deliver basic electricity service before the heatwave and extreme weather. officials were warning in may of rolling blackouts before the heatwave of fires. >> well, california should be one of the most successful states in the nation and the reason they have this problem over and over is because you don't want to demonstrate the leadership wrong desantis has demonstrated in florida and it's common sense. what american's grave regardless of party is freedom, choice and safety and that's not what's provided in california. liz: things could have been different in florida, democrat andrew gillam one, right? >> that's right. teresa decided by less than 40000 votes and i promise you if andrew one, schools would be
6:58 pm
closed for two years, you have a greater loss of learning and the reason you florida's america is america and beacon of hope in the conservative movement is because of wrong desantis commonsense leadership and because of that right now that's why he's attacked by gavin newsom among other democrats because they believe if they attack desantis they may be able to come. the democratic presidential nominee. liz: he's in lockstep with president biden and look at t this, beto o'rourke, he agrees with texas gop governor abbott. he's claiming i'll keep the public safety officers at the border equivalent of kansas is caught trying to cross. >> this is the problem within the democratic party, they tried to say the right things 60 days before election day and then after you see their true colors. democrats have no concern about the border, they do not care about sustaining energy when it comes to america and they don't care about a problem.
