tv The Next Revolution With Steve Hilton FOX News July 1, 2018 9:00pm-10:00pm PDT
- right back at you. - thanks. - you're gonna make me cry up in here. - ( laughter ) >> good evening. welcome to the next revolution. this is the home of positive populism. leases here with a whole hour. will be joined by governor mike huckabee and ainsley ehrhardt. it's july the fourth next week. as we look for to that and look back at a momentous week in politics, it's important to remember deep truths about america and our system of government. that system is under threat today. i studied at oxford university. i don't say that to show how clever i am, but the opposite. they did not teach me much at all. it was not until i actually lived here that i understood the
true genius of america's founders and what they put in place. a few years ago i took my sons to the national constitution center. there was a live performance telling the story of the declaration of independence, the revolutionary war and the years leading to the convention. it moved me to tears with a powerful expression of the beautiful id at the heart of america. an idea not expressed by other nations. liberty under the law. from that and those incomparable founding documents come the things that are special about america. things different and better than where i grew up in england. i see the power of those virtues every day in a way those clever professors never taught me. but, i also see them under threat. a blurb as you know him, the founder said. for many, one. from that flows the melting pot
where everyone is welcome as long as they become american. it is cracking under the same forces of uncontrolled immigration and insufficient integration that produce the disaster of multiculturalism in europe. the declaration of independence talked about the history of repeated injuries all having direct object an absolute tyranny over these states. the principle of maximum self-government is guaranteed by the tenth amendment. today, we see a vast bureaucratic machine is centralizing as the unaccountable european union. perhaps the simplest, but my favorite expression in our unique virtue. the brilliant decision hotly debated by the founder of what to call the head of states. not your majesty, not your excellency, not your highness, but mr. president.
that attitude, everyone equal under the law. nobody better than anyone else, led to the pioneering spirit that made america the greatest nation in history of the world. what is happened to that attitude today? we have a sneering elite in washington, new york, and silicon valley that believe they are better than everyone else. finally, the one thing that underpins the great american virtue, the constitution. president trump was duly elected according to the constitution. but, the democrat republican establishments have worked nonstop to undermine his legitimacy. look at the biggest event of this year, the time where justice kennedy will retire. immediately the talk was about locking trumps nominee.
this from the same people who accuse president trump of undermining the rule of law. the melting pot, decentralized government, constitution enshrining the precious idea people power. it is under threat today. we need to fight for it. that is the next revolution we need. tell me what you think. joining me now to discuss, former arkansas governor and host of huckabee, mike huckabee and fox news contributor, lisa. lisa, when you think about all of the big political debates going on, immigration and the supreme court decision, feels like they go to the heart. everything is really important about america. this is a big moment when those foundational values are being tested.
>> absolutely. we are seeing those tested. you talked about the importance of decentralized government. we know what democrats believe. i was part with president trump running democrat in power. they want power of government from cradle to grave. that was the emphasis of the campaign that president obama ran. that's what the democrat wants. they with the power and in charge of our lives from start to finish. >> steve: governor, there's much to unpack in this. where do you think we stand with these big arguments? >> steve, first let me complement you on the monologue. it was brilliant. i wish every american would hear. they might get a perspective about how to embrace their donation. i wish they would. what troubles me is that an american scene to miss the important point.
our founders gave us the most magnificent get. a government that we have the power to change when we didn't like it. the manner in which we change it is through the ballots, not the bullets. in other words, we have a chance every two years to completely change our government through the house. we can change the senate and every four years we can change a president. typically, when one side has the opportunity to govern and they don't do it well, the american people say, you are fired. what is different now, while president trump was elected president by a majority of the electors, he won the election overwhelmingly. people need to say, okay. let him govern. if, for years we don't like the way he is getting the job done, we can fix it. you cannot just stop governing and gum up the works like the democrats are.
the worst thing is calling people not season racist because they don't like the way your believing and practicing a government. >> steve: that is an important point, gumming up the work. that was the immediate reaction to the news about the new supreme court vacancy last week the left says we have to stop it we have to organize, march and we have to stop this. forget about the constitution. >> even before that, go back to when president trump will first one, you had democrats calling for electors to buck the voters in their state of vote against president trump. ultimately it ended up hurting hillary clinton more than president trump. you had more faceless electors that bucked hillary clinton them for president trump. that demonstrated this undermining of the trump administration from the start.
then comes the russia investigation the democrats have tried to utilize the legitimacy president trump. let the president govern. if you don't like it, show up at the midterm election and make a difference. these bullying the tactics that we have seen from the left in so many instances. look at what happened to the governor daughter, people showing up outside of secretary nielsen's home, outside of secretary chow's home. that is not america. that's not going to make a difference. if they want to make a difference, show up at the polls. >> steve: such a great point. a perfect link to my next question to which is going to come back to something very personal to you and your family. i would love to hear from you directly a week or so on from what happened, how are you feeling about the way sarah was
targeted in that restaurant and what it says about what it's going on in our political culture? >> first, it was an example of bullying and bigotry. the bullying being thrown out of a restaurant, not because she was misbehaving or making a scene, but because she was just simply there. that is bullying. secondly, it is bigotry when you attack someone simply because of what they believe. not what they are doing, but what they believe. that's not the kind of america that has freedom. my biggest concern is that you have looney tunes like hollywood actor, peter fonda, who publicly tweeted that someone should break into her house and cannot are children. now, nobody who says that kind of thing should spend the night at home. they need to be spending the night in jail, charged with both
the california crime in a federal crime they committed of encouraging people to do harm to another. >> steve: governor, i've heard from the left that they say that's all fine but this angry response from the left is just a response to president trump. he started it and is one with the inflammatory rhetoric. what you say to that? >> again, it's nonsense. the president did not encourage that kind of violence. just a complete disaster for anybody to think it is okay to start throwing people out of restaurants or that it is okay for there to be some kind of bigoted action that encourages violence. that's what received on the left. not just a strongly worded disagreement, the encouragement of violence. >> it is important to point out that we have seen violence.
look at the shooting and attempted assassination of the members of congress, steve scalise. the guy was a bernie sanders supporter. a member of congress who is run off the road, the woman got out and pounded on the doors of his car. another instance where a guy serving 15 months in federal prison for threatening to kill another person. we have seen violence as well. that doesn't often get discussed. it's important to discuss that and put some of these other bullying tactics into contacts and how they could turn into a horrific incident. >> steve: thank you so much. governor, appreciate you joining us. see you soon, i hope. >> thank you, very much. >> coming up, m get great deals on great gear at bass pro shops and cabela's. like select men's hiking shorts
for under $15. save 25% on select towable tubes. and bring the kids for free workshops and activities. gonna make it rain "tre tres". kids 'cause dad's he's saying he's gonna score a bunch of three-pointers on you. yeah, we ball til we fall. there are multiples on the table: one is cash, three are fha, one is va. so what can you do? she's saying a whole lotta people want to buy this house. but you got this! rocket mortgage by quicken loans makes the complex simple. understand the details and get approved in as few as eight minutes. by america's largest mortgage lender.
well, it's a whole day's worth of love songs. 300 minutes of baby videos. or, it's a million chat messages. a gig goes a long way. that's why xfinity mobile lets you pay for data one gig at a time. and with millions of wifi hotspots included, you'll pay less for data. it's a new kind of network designed to save you money. click, call or visit a store today. >> steve: welcome back.lisa is e cohost of fox and friends, ainsley ehrhardt. the less time we were together we are drinking beer in a london pub. >> i feel left out.
>> steve showed me all around london in the restaurant where he found out his wife was pregnant with her second child. it was a special time. the beer they serve tasted like a bluemoon but with something else. i can't find it here. it was so good. >> will have to do another road trip. onto more serious matters. we been talking about july 4 in the constitution and all the things that make america special. it seems to me that one of the things about the notion of limited government that america is about is government should not be the most important thing in our lives. it's actually things like family, faith, and community that really are the foundation of a strong society. right now, with this political arguing and anger seems those things are threatened.
>> you cannot lose faith. you have to trust god through each situation in each season in your life. our country is going through an interesting season. we are very our parents learned from our grandparents and they learned the importance of going to church and senior prayers and blessing before you eat, being grateful and thankful and working hard. they told taught us that you can't forget where you came, everyone is god's child. to work really hard, don't expect to get the big job when you graduate from college, takes 20 years. they taught us the importance of loving your neighbor like yourself. not sure if our society has gotten away from going to church and i think our country needs that. it gives us the foundation for being great parents and stewards and great employees.
i think if we could find out and learn to love each other not be so angry just because they have a different political opening, we would be better off as a country. and to learn to compromise. >> steve: my gosh, i think it so many people could just hear that and agree so passionately with what you said. lisa, i'm sure you agree but i notice you talk often about your family and how important that is as a foundation for you. >> family has been everything in my life. i look at struggles i have been through into not how i could have gone through them without the strong family unit. every time i go back to visit my family i am with them. you realize what's important in life. god, family, not politics another frivolous things going on in the country. there's not only a ton of social
research to back up of the family union, a family being orchids being raised by their two biological parents. my heart breaks for people who do not have that in their life. i would not be the person i will and today if i do not have two loving parents. it is everything in my life and what i value the most. >> steve: ainsley, do you think it is becoming harder to be that parent? speak not just personally but how the way things are going. >> i think the conversations are different than when we were growing up. kids are learning about harsh realities earlier area there is scripture that says take heart, i have overcome the world. this is in god's hands. he knew it was going to happen and it is going to be okay.
lisa was talking about her struggles, if you don't understand why god's taking you through something, you eventually will. you have to have blind faith. we've done many stories on suicide and famous people taking their own lives. our country is faced with many stresses. we are working longer hours and stressed out about how to provide food for kids. you have to take a step back and remember, it is all going to be okay. be grateful for the many blessings that you have. turn to god and get in your knees and cry out to him. be the best you can and try to hang onto the positive messages your friends are giving you. turn to your friends if you're having a struggle. >> steve: one thing that takes away from it, the way ainsley put it is it so human. it's about the individual and what people can relate to. one thing that has taken us away
from the also contradicts something very profound in the constitution, that power in government should be local and decentralized. the moment you centralize everything becomes big and bureaucratic. i think there is something we can actually do to get back to what ainsley is talking about. >> too often it's reaching out to the government for answers when the answers rely on ourselves and our family units. part of the reason we're having a breakdown in this country is the lack of emphasis on family, the lack of emphasis on community. everyone is inward facing. 's just another human being. a lot of that has to do with even just social media. people go online is a sense of community as opposed to getting out a meeting your neighbor. i think the breakdown hurts us as a country.
if you no longer see the person next to you as a neighbor and fellow american, you can see how people turn to desensitize rhetoric, this tribalism and mob mentality that were seen. >> also keep it simple. growing up, my dad was so nice to everyone. the garbage men would come out, he's feeding us breakfast in the kitchen and you can hear the garbageman clinking the garbage cans together. all they wanted was dad to bring you orange juice and donuts are toast with peanut butter. dad always did that. my mom was in a rehab facility because she was it had a stroke. the other day my mom make cookies for my dad for father's day with her therapist. dad took the cookies run top all the patients when gave them all cookies even though some are diabetic and couldn't eat them.
but he so kind. even if you see a protester and don't agree, remembered they are god's children. love one another, try to be kind, do the right thing. dad would pick up a stray dog and look at their tag and try to find their owners. he's taught us so many great lessons. >> steve: that is such a great lesson for all of us. thank you so much for joining us. lisa, stick around. coming up, one of the biggest revolutions that has changed everyone's lives. technology and those wretched cell phones and what can we do a ♪ you like to be in control. especially when it comes to important stuff. like, say... your car. well, good news.
one day, he found out he had something called autism. his family got him help. and slowly he learned how to live with it better. announcer: early intervention can make a lifetime of difference. learn the signs at autismspeaks.org. >> welcome back. being a parent means you have no choice but to do with the fact that your children spend a huge amount of time of social media. do you really know what they're doing other cell phone? what side are they on and how much time are they spending online? >> it is hard to find anyone in a crowd without a phone in their hand, talking, texting, snapping
or posting pictures. it's true when it comes to teenagers. according to a new research center survey, 95% of u.s. teens aged 13 to make 17 have access to smart phones. 45% say they are online almost constantly. >> i am surprise. i think kids want to present themselves as being balanced. in the study they were more than willing to admit they spend most of their lives looking at were interacting with digital devices. >> i'm pretty sure everyone i know has a smart phone. >> henry admits he spends quite a bit of time on his phone. >> how often are you on your phone? >> probably more than i should be. but, i do have other things to do so i cannot constantly be on my phone. >> one thing that keeps them busy as football. as a mother of three boys his mom says it is a priority to make sure he interacts with his peers in person.
>> he can hold the phone when he's on the football team. that's how they get their core group of friends. if your child is in his room on the computer and phone all day figure out something for them to do. >> until recently facebook was the dominant plant form for america's teens. not anymore. now it's youtube, instagram, snapchat. the study says teens have mixed views and social media. 31% reporting a positive affect. 45%, neither positive nor negative, 25% mostly negative. henry and his mom said their experience as a family has been mostly positive. as a tool to keep up with relatives and friends. with henry using twitter and facebook to communicate with football coaches recruiting for college. >> posting things and linking your highlights to your bio that would get the coaches
interested. >> for the negative, parents report frustration without knowing what their kids are looking at when their eyes are glued to the screen. karen north said these days kids are under pressure that leads to misrepresenting who they really are. >> people are posting exaggerated or embellished pictures and nobody can measure up to what they find online. >> the professor points out like it or not, we live in a digital world. you can only limit your kids exposer to a certain degree. she advises from an early age to keep these devices in the family room. take an interest in what your kids are looking at online, no matter how uninterested you are. >> thank you. i'm trying to discuss this with the editor at real time politics and founder and ceo of common
sense media. the evidence and the harm is mounting. just this week i was reading some research talking about kids showing risk a photos and absent something as innocent as a calculator. and then there trading those. fake instagram feeds. i know this is personal for you. one of the ideas i have been advocating for for a while is that we should simply take drastic action and band smart phones that are internet connected for under 16. people thought that's crazy but i'm dead serious. where do you stand? >> thanks steve. i have two teenagers, rising sophomore and junior, they've have phones as they went to a middle school far enough away that we thought they needed it for security reasons.
it's hard to keep phones away from adolescence. it really makes them outcasts if they don't have them. i agree with your premise, the frontal lobe is not fully developed until 25. so we get the chance to vote and drive and drink all before that determines judgment is fully matured and develop. using the phone constantly, all day long every day from your young teenage years until that lobe gets fully developed will have an enormous impact on the teen brain. it will follow you for the rest of your life. were in this generation between when these were that we can imagine to having it is children who are digital natives. were part of the only generation who can see the before. will look back and see the unintended consequences were
incredibly damaging. there's much to be said about the goods but there's also worrisome signs that we will look back and wonder why we did not put guardrails up sooner. >> steve: i agree with that. you are in the whole business you are leading figure in our country for putting up those guardrails. that's a good definition of what you do a common sense media. you think it can be controlled rather than taking a drastic action, is that how you see it? >> you're making a good point. i'm a data for an i know we look at it the same way. addiction is a huge issue. over 50% of kids in the united states believe they are addicted to their cell phones. you're right with your comments. it would be difficult to enact a
band. but there has to be clear pressure exerted on the industry itself to find ways to get kids and adults to put phones down. as adults you're the most important role model for your kid. we need to look at it seriously. it would be hard to enact a band but this discussion is critically important for every parent, kid in school. the more we talk about it the better. i know you take an extreme position and i expect that but i an important conversation. >> you are like me and based in california in the heart of the tech industry, do you see evidence that the tech companies not just facebook and google but apple who make the smart phones and they take this seriously. >> they definitely are.
i know the people who know those companies quite well. i would say that apple has started to take this seriously. they just introduce new features that are designed for balance use of the cell phone. out of all apple takes it very seriously. these all have to get their act together. we've asked for years for them to join our device free dinnertime. public needs to speak up. viewers need to talk to companies like facebook, instagram and snapchat say you should be messaging to young people to put your phone away and pay attention. i think this is one where public pressure can have a big impact. it will be tough to legislate but we can educate the public and pressure companies to do
more to have a balanced approa approach. >> that makes sense. it is encouraging to hear that companies are taking it more seriously. it puts a lot of weight on the parents that they have to do the work. somehow that seems unfair to me. >> i wish the community at large would discourage and shame all of this widespread phone use. i was at a funeral this week, no one was going to take their phone on. when i was with you steve, i'm on a new said and i'm worried if i don't do something on twitter i won't be up to date. when were not onset i don't use my phone around you because you don't have a phone. if there is a tone set and a debate about addiction and how much more alienating especially for adolescents that phone uses because you're not looking at the physical signals and perceiving how they're talking
to, you're not learning the art of being with people in conversation, confronting awkwardness and having empathy. instead you're reading about the great time your friend said they had with the awesome photos while you are at home not invited on your phone. this conversation beyond the industry that brought us this revolution somehow between apple and the parents there has to be something else. teachers, coworkers, a bigger debate about what this will cost in terms of lack of community and addiction. you can give up drugs and alcohol, it's hard if you're an addict. if you're addicted by age 17 you have a life of trouble ahead of you.
>> well said. jim for your work i think something you should know about your really leading the charge and i appreciate that. i'm sure we'll talk about this more. this is something the audience is concerned about. >> a deceive. >> steve: you've seen her on the show before. lenore is the pioneer of the free range kids movement. free range kids movement. she has some updates i am all about living joyfully. ♪ hello. the new united explorer card hooks me up. getting more for getting away. rewarded! going new places and tasting new flavors. rewarded! traveling lighter. rewarded!

everyone's getting ready for july 4 and people like to be outside, there's so much of what people love about america and being outdoors and with their family, the bureaucrats are trying to ruin it with their stupid rules, what's the latest. >> it is very hard to feel confident about sending your kids outside when you know that, except in utah which has the free range to parenting law that you could be harassed or investigated for letting your kid have the most basic freedom which is the freedom to go outside and enjoy the fourth of july weather. i am pleased that utah pass the law which said it's not against the law if a parent thinks their kid is ready to walk outside, play outside, go get a hot dog. even the at home briefly while they're going out to do something.
it is the freedoms we would like to assume all parents have which is the freedom to parent as they see fit. we have to fight to get it back. >> steve: this is just another manifestation of over governments, the way the bureaucrats and the administrative state that we talk about. they start talking over and they have no business. >> trying to take away parents for making decisions over how they want to raise their kids. i really worry that were building a weak future generation with the political correctness eyeing college campus, micro aggressions, what other people are calling it, life is tough, we need to build strong individuals that are going to go on and address those issues on their own and make their own determination so the people around him and will be prepared for being around people who are different that don't share the same belief system and also who will be offended in the
work force from time to time. i worry that were building a weak future generation. that's concerning for the country at large. >> i totally agree. if you treat your children as fragile and are forced to treat them as fragile that they cannot handle a spat, one example i love to give is a couple years ago parents magazine had an article about play dates which you would not think you would need that. one question asked is if my parent is old enough to stay home alone for a little while while i go to the dry cleaner can i do that if they haven't played it over. the magazine said absolutely not. you want to be there in case your child and the other girl have a spat. want to be able to intervene. that's assuming that kids can't figure things out on their own,
even a disagreement or a brief moment of anger or frustration. in fact, parents are always intervening are always someone your child is supposed to talk to instead of dealing with it, they don't learn how to deal someone with a different point of view. they think discomfort equals danger. everything is presented as unsafe. discomfort is part of life. you want kids to get part of a little rough-and-tumble and standing up for what they believe. maybe it does make sense and they're going to be a college and the workforce that's coming at them to tell them discomfort should not be something that happens to them doesn't make sense. >> it's also character building as well. the age of participation trophies of the cheerleading story where the girl that make the team, sometimes you don't
win. if you don't when you have to suck it up, get back out there, come back stronger, smarter. those things are character building to learn how to win and better yourself and got be a better person. to work harder and try to make the team the next time or when the trophy the next time. i am concerned about the weakening of people in the country. >> steve: lenore is fighting back with great successes as we have seen in utah with the free range kids law there. thank you so much for that law and for joining us. coming up, were in the middle of the world cup. the u.s. team is nowhere to be seen, why is that i joined the army after 911, cuz, um, i thought that was what i needed to do. we got our orders to go overseas
and i went to baghdad, iraq. we were transporting a bomb sniffing dog to the polling stations. we rolled over two anti-tank mines, it blew my humvee up, killed my sergeant. after the explosion, i suffered a closed head injury, um, traumatic brain injury, loss of a limb, burns to 60% of my body. when the doctors told me i reached my plateau, i did not want to hear that because i do not believe i have a plateau. so, i had to prove 'em wrong, which i am doing to this day and i will still do until the end of my days. i've gotten to where i am at because of my family. and, the wounded warrior project has helped me more than i can ever imagine. they have really been there to support me in my endeavors. my number one goal, basically, is to get close to where i was.
>> thank you. it's about playing the game in the most basic level. you can talk to any experts will say what's wrong with that highest levels. the coach, the players, our book is about what's happening at the most basic level. the level where kids learn to play the game. unless you address that the other stuff is lipstick on a pig. we are not allowing our kids to play the beautiful game that's being played and warning world cups. were playing soccer or were not actually playing soccer, were practicing it. retraining kids to win soccer games but our kids are not playing soccer. >> let's get specific about that. you're talking about the way kids are required their coats to play it's a game early versus learning skills. is that what you're saying?
>> that's part of it. the other day i went for a run around the park locally where two of the elite programs in the region practice. there's about 12 teams playing. iran around for an hour i didn't see a game being played. they were drilling, working on skills and skill -based with coaches watching them. nobody was playing soccer. that's not the only problem. if we allow our kids to play they would end up doing the things that a child naturally does when they're trying to have fun. if you look like how it's played in the rest of the world in argentina or spain there is a recent piece on how it was played in france where many of the national team players are playing. these kids are playing on hard surfaces with different balls
without coaches and referees telling them how to play the game. the plaintiff fast pace gain. here we sign your kid up for an organized league. they get it nice uniform issues and prevention guards and they have a coach watching them from day one. they're kicking the ball through 3 - 5 inches of grass. then he think about the grass that's being played in the world cup. it's like comparing wimbledon on your front lawn because they played on grass. >> we don't have too much time. what is the shoeless part? where does that come into it? >> shoeless is the extreme example of getting rid of the equipment. we put our kids and shin guards
and highly organized team with fancy uniforms. we need to strip things away. were not naïve enough to believe we can go back to way things were 1950 brazil. but they learn to play barefoot. with a number of our kids in the last year we had them play barefoot all winter long. with different balls,. >> steve: i'm so sorry, we have to cut you off. we have to leave it there. we appreciate your work on it. thank you very much. coming up, lisa is back with paying too much for insurance you don't even understand? well, esurance makes it simple and affordable. in fact, drivers who switched from geico to esurance saved an average of $412. that's auto and home insurance for the modern world. esurance. an allstate company. click or call. paying too much for insurance that isn't the right fit? well, esurance makes finding the right coverage easy. in fact, drivers who switched from geico to esurance
we have to embrace them and be proud in america. >> what a great y,y,y,y,y,y,y,y us next sunday when "the next revolution" will be televised. . mark: hello america. i'm mark levin. this is "life, liberty & levin." i have a special guest. tucker carlson. great to see you. [ laughter ] >> i've been on tv23 years, this is the most spectacular studio. mark: isn't it great? >> congratulations, first of all, you are killing it, i have to persuade to you do stuff. there is a fact story. mark: i owe you and other people the fact i got into room. i kept prodding
