of israel but just last month benjamin netanyahu's ambassador to the united states said, quote, out of respect for the u.s. congress and the great alliance between israel and america we would not deny entry to any member of congress into israel. rashida tlaib tweeting a photograph of her grandmother who lives in the west bank. israeli officials say she may be able to visit family members if she files a humanitarian request. >> reporter: is not carrying a weapon and directing it against israel, she's coming to visit her family, her country, her people. it is her right to visit her country and her family. >> congresswoman omar released a statement which reads in part, quote, the iron he of the only democracy in the middle east making such a decision is that it is both an insult to democratic values and a chilling response to a visit by government officials from an allied nation. nancy pelosi called the decision, quote, a sign of weakness and beneath the dignity of the great state of israel.
the republican author of an anti-bds bill says israel made a mistake by denying the freshman lawmakers into. florida senator marco rubio tweeting being blocked is what they hoped for all along in order to bolster their attacks against the jewish state but donald trump, a close ally of netanyahu said today the prime minister made the right decision. >> if israel allowed them to come in for normal reasons other than those reasons i really believe it would be a terrible thing for israel. >> the political action committee in the business of promoting israel disagrees with donald trump and prime minister netanyahu stateing we believe every member of congress should be able to visit and experience our democratic ally israel firsthand. shannon: does his relapse decision to ban two members of the squad hurt or help the president. and looking to unseat jerry
nadler, and pastor's church of dallas doctor robert jeffers, welcome to you both. the new york times says this, the editorial board under the headline what are trump and netanyahu afraid of? long bone his relapse mantra that critics of israel policy should come and see for themselves in the country certainly strong enough to handle any criticism from two members of congress, donald trump is done israel now favors. >> it is important to understand these women were denied entry into the israel not because their women are women of color or democrats but because they engaged in caustic anti-semitic rhetoric and embrace policies that are as greater threat to israel is any terrorist attack. we need to remember israel as a nation the size of new jersey but for 3000 years it has endured attack by audiology and countries that want to wipe the jewish people off the face of
the are that it is so easy for us in america separated by two oceans to say israel out to be more tolerant but when you are small country under threat 24/7 you can't give an inch to people who would question the right of urination even to exist like these two congresswomen. netanyahu did the right thing barring these women from coming into israel and donald trump did the right thing in supporting israel. shannon: netanyahu so the itinerary with you is the sole purpose of their visit is to harm israel and increase incitement against it saying netanyahu's statement no country in the world respects the u.s. congress more than israel but israeli law prohibits entry to those calling for a boycott of the country. he and others say they refused to meet with israeli officials and it appeared to him they were only there to cause trouble. a response? >> the only problem here is not admitting two congresswomen who
are representing 1,000,0001/2 people in america being barred from entry to israel. this is squarely on israeli government officials and our president has gone above and beyond taking a never before seen step to actually ask that his fellow politicians of the united states not be allowed into israel, a democracy, one democracy to another this is one of the worst days we have seen and it is unfortunate the pastor to such a terrible cause. >> the federalist today saying israel has every right to block rashida tlaib and ilhan omar saying the obama administration denied a visa to michael ben ari, a member of the hard right is really, who is no worse than tlaib or omar. this angst of american democracy breaking up, surely we're secure
enough in our police to handle is presence. >> i think the best example of democracy is when we have people who disagree, we don't need to agree on every single issue. these two members of congress are representing the people of their district, you saw before the israeli ambassador's office said they would have no problem with these women entering israel for the purposes of political gathering, meetings and the only difference now is the president of the united states has chosen to make this is cause and benjamin netanyahu feels this is also a good look for him which it is not. >> bernie sanders said he wants to leverage all the usaid we are giving to what he calls their racist policies and there is no reason and no right for israel to do this.
>> i communicated today with our great ambassador to israel, david friedman and david made a tremendous point when he said the israeli government was going to welcome these congresswomen into israel, they just wanted them to spend a little time with israeli officials so israeli officials could give them an overview of what they were doing to treat palestinians and humanitarian way. these congresswomen refused to meet with israeli officials, instead the only place they wanted to go was occupied palestine was all they were doing was gathering evidence and ammunition against israeli people to use in their propaganda and israel has every right to refuse them gathering ammunition to use against israel. shannon: thank you both for having this discussion.
democratic 20/20 rivals, hosting a keep america great rally in new hampshire and democrats continue to try to woo voters in iowa. team coverage, kristin fisher in des moines, we go live to molly line in new hampshire where the president wrapped up his latest campaign rally. >> the first big rally immigrant state since 2016 election cycle. he slams his 2020 opponents mainly joe biden the senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren, he bragged about the economy, unemployment, factory expansion, the boom in oil and gas, he touched on particular interest to the people in the live free or die state including the opioid epidemic and second amendment rights. >> we can't make it harder for good solid law-abiding citizens to protect themselves. we will always uphold the right

attended the rally. >> it would be tough to beat. he will go into washington and he's going to have you in mind, do a job if he does do it. >> reporter: the big announcement tonight from lewandowski and the president said let us now please. >> we are standing by to find out, thank you so much. donald trump aims to keep america great, that's the slogan now, 2020 democrats working on new strategies to keep him from winning a second term. kristin fisher is on the scene at the iowa state fair tracking what is going on with the presidential hopeful. >> of 2016 was all about finding a candidate that would check up washington 2020 is turning out
to be for democrats about finding a candidate that concern america politics to what it was before donald trump. >> according to a fox news poll out today 60% of the democratic primary voters polled say restoring politics to normalcy is more important than deciding who to vote for, and the candidate it will change in washington works which increasingly on the campaign trail, the pitch is with me in the white house you can relax. >> i'm not doing run doing crazy things to look for a viral moment. >> you can count on there being 2 weeks go by that you don't need to think about what i'm doing. >> it is tiring. >> the 2020 horse race is never dull, the first major shakeup to the leaderboard into a new fox news for joe biden still in the lead but elizabeth warren as leapfrog over bernie sanders,
she's up 8 points from july why is down 5, kamala harris in fourth place at 8%. cory booker and pete aishah hasnie and andrew yang tied at 3%. amy klobuchar and beto rocket two, everyone else 1% or less. beta o'rourke was campaigning for the first time after returning to el paso in the wake of the city's mass shootings. >> when asked if i was heading back to iowa to go to the iowa state fair. to corndogs and ferris wheels and i said i can't go back for that. the kind of challenges we face in this country, at this moment of crisis require emergency. >> beta o'rourke may not be here for the corndogs but we are and personally i'm here for a lot of the treats, fried oreos probably my favorite thing i found here. most people come to the state fair for the pork. iowa is the number one pork producing state in the entire country. i don't like pork much but my
producer does so i sent them out on a pork scavenger and to see the best pork treaty could find at the iowa state for, what did you find. >> these are bacon and cheese wrapped together, with even more bacon and dumped in barbecue sauce, 9 pieces of bacon total. >> 9 pieces of bacon, wow! >> and iowa is known for their pork. >> i am sure some of you at home are wondering what on earth are you wearing, please tell me about your look. >> the iowa cubs, aaa team, the chicago cubs on august 30th are going to be playing at the iowa caucuses wearing this very hat and special jerseys and they are doing it in honor of the iowa caucus being the first place where people vote.
>> i'm sure you are wondering if he put this on just for this live shot but he has been wearing it all day long, that is how committed he is to the iowa state fair. i think he's coming back to dc a changed man. >> i know jason so i don't doubt anything you are telling me. if you could carry on the bacon balls and i will take a few of those. >> not sure i can get them but i will do my best. shannon: have fun, be safe. fox news alert, north korea firing two short range missiles into the east see. south korea convening an emergency national security council session. pyongyang says it won't talk again after the joint drills are done.

>> shannon: disturbing video surfacing of onlookers in philadelphia taunting, even throwing things at police officers who are responding to that very active heather: disturbing videos of onlookers taunting, even throwing things at police officers responding to the active hours long shootout and subsequent standoff last night ended the news that 6 police officers had been shot. trace gallagher is on the case. >> reporter: not only was the attack on philadelphia police
live streamed, it unfolded live on national tv. six offices shot and wounded, 300 trying to get to the scene and two additional police officers pinned down on the second floor of the building while the shooter shot rounds into the ceiling at the first floor and while police were fighting for their lives, local philly tv report alexandria half tweeted a major moment of disappointment this evening was watching the crowd of people taunts police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire, other videos showed an officer being shoved by a resident and that is just what the cameras can't. into the word police is a national trend and not far from the shooting in philadelphia and new york police officer was shot and killed except the wound was self-inflicted marking the ninth nypd officer to die by suicide this year. here is the new york mayor. >> the suicides of our officers is extraordinarily painful.
we have lost offices in the past but this concentration is devastating. >> while the mayor helps police the mental health program spearheaded by bill diblasio's wife shirley mcrae, offered to give psychological support to first responders because the event was sponsored by blue lives matter, a pro-police group. it is notable that nationwide, 27 police officers have died in the line of duty in 2019, 122, nearly 5 times as many have reportedly killed themselves and this week democratic presidential candidate was before and kamala harris both tweeted that five years ago michael browning ferguson, missouri was murdered by a white police officer despite the doj under president obama saying the shooting was justified. still politicized refused to say
warren and harris were wrong. the wall street journal's james toronto roads i have been on to you guys for more than a decade yet you still managed to surprise me with your dishonesty. factcheck.org had no problems saying harrison worn were wrong at the washington post gave them four pinocchios. >> breaking tonight release congressional records throwing senior fbi leaders under the bus. on top of that the officers bravely responding to the active seen with confidence marked by some of the people there. a california highway patrol officer laid to rest, gun down there what should of energy -- routine traffic stop. two ice detective shot up in a targeted attack. we talk about it with the author of the war on tops, heather, great to have you with us. i want to talk about what people are describing that they saw, reporters were on scene in philadelphia, this is still very much ongoing, well past midnight. here's what rush limbaugh had to say.
>> some lunatic going crazy and shooting cops is not the story. the story is philadelphia residents of his apartment building harassing, to hunting, and throwing objects that the police who were responding to an active shooting that was endangering every citizen in this neighborhood. >> how did we get to this place? >> we get to it because of the poisonous false narrative the democratic party has embraced for the last 5 years and is continuing to pump out into the body politic. just last week you had elizabeth warren claiming michael brown was murdered by a white officer and we need to confront systemic racism and police violence, kamala harris made a similar calumny against the officer in missouri, the justice department
completely disproved that live. the whole hands up don't shoot narrative was made up and the democrats continue to pump out this idea that policeing is systemically biased against blacks. it is not true. just within the last month the national academy of sciences published yet another study showing that there is no bias in police shootings but this rhetoric matters. it creates hostility that cops are getting across the country, not just philadelphia, not just new york, not just chicago, democrats are playing with fire. shannon: william mcshane says that the's office is not letting them get away with things. there is a new culture of disrespect for law enforcement that has promoted and championed
by district attorney larry krasner and i'm fed up with it. it started with the da victory party, a chance to ask the police and no good cops in a racist system. he is a law-enforcement officer himself as the da. >> it just shows ideology is more important than experience. i wish we could say philadelphia was an isolated incident and this is the result of one left-wing prosecutor. krasner as counterparts across the country based on the phony ideas that we have mass incarceration the targets blacks, the shooter that shot these cops in philadelphia had a criminal record involving robbery, gun crimes a mile long, he is on the streets. it is simply not the case that
we are locking up harmless joint smokers and throwing away the key. we are letting out violent criminals on a routine basis, but again philadelphia is not unique, this is happening everywhere and it is happening for the last five years and i am worried, i thought with trump in office when you did not have any longer somebody who invites black lives matter activists to the white house to meet with them as president obama did that the effects of this phony narrative would dissipate, they have not, they have worked their way into the prosecutorial system, academia embraces this idea. is going to take a lot to extricate it but if we get another democratic president, philadelphia is going to look like a cakewalk. shannon: people can read the justice department, the obama justice department reports on the shooting, the investigations and michael brown shooting and other places to find the facts for themselves and make their
own determinations, we hate to say we marked this week the ninth suicide in the nypd, and incredibly stressful thing, force and officers regardless of race or anything else. thank you for your writing on this topic, great to have you tonight. breaking tonight, newly released congressional records throwing senior fbi leaders under the bus and it is all linked to hillary clinton's private email server and peter heather nauert he. katherine herridge is next. ♪ applebee's handcrafted burgers now with endless fries starting at $7.99. and get more bites for your buck with late night half-priced apps. now that's eatin' good in the neighborhood.
shannon: a fox news alert, brand-new memos shedding light on how the fbi including peter heather nauert he reacted to news that hillary clinton's private email server may have been compromised by foreign entity. katherine herridge has new details. >> reporter: according to newly released congressional records, senior fbi leader seemed indifferent to evidence that hillary clinton's personal server may have been compromised and is a direct link to peter heather nauert he.
intelligence community investigators discovered emails went to how -- account possibly linked to china. it was shared with agent heather nauert he was later removed over and i trump texts, quote, some members of the fbi investigative team seemed indifferent to evidence of a possible intrusion by a foreign adversary into secretary clinton's government server. when stzrok publicly testify republican congressman preston on the 2016 briefing from investigator frank rucker who worked for the intelligence committee's internal watchdog. stzrok minimized the context. >> i remember meeting him on one or 2 occasions. i do not remember the specific content or discussions. >> mister rucker reported to those of you, before of you there in the presence of the ic, ig attorney. they may have found this anomaly on hillary clinton's emails going through a private server, you would call that?
>> former fbi director james comey said they found no direct evidence it was hacked but the fbi acknowledged hostile actors did gain access to the private commercial email accounts of some clinton aides. according to the newly released records the mysterious email account was similar to a chinese firm but the fbi said was a dummy account set up by a company that managed the clinton server to transfer archived email. shannon: new questions around the death of jeffrey epstein, his autopsy showed injuries that could be consistent with suicide or miss something more sinister. brian guinness has been covering this case since the news of his death broke. >> reporter: the washington post cited 2 individuals familiar with the findings of jeffrey epstein's autopsy, reports epstein broke multiple bones in
his neck including the bone near his adam's apple, multiple experts tell fox news such brakes can occur in hangings but are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation. the result has fueled skepticism by some leading medical examiners who question the report epstein killed himself by tying a bedsheet around his neck to his jail cell bunkbed, strangling himself by kneeling toward the floor. >> it would be exceedingly rare. i always hesitate that something is impossible but i do not hesitate in saying given this scenario of just leaning forward. >> reporter: epstein autopsy was completed sunday the chief medical examiner said she needed more information before determining cause of death which may include surveillance video from hallways inside the manhattan correctional center. >> even though there is not individual cell cameras individually there are range cameras. >> epstein's lawyers are fighting to keep his controversial plea deal from being thrown out despite the
fact their client is dead. lawyers for the accusers argue the nonprosecution agreement should be nullified because it provides immunity to any potential co-conspirators. attorney kenneth starr who helped negotiate the controversial plea deal says it should stay. >> page after page after page, every word carefully negotiated and it was as we say a global resolution. this case is closed. >> reporter: ben sachs has asked attorney general william barr to, quote, give up the plea deal stating the federal government can allow epstein's accomplices to escape too. shannon: donald trump wants to go green, greenland, that is, that leaves the real news roundup, new reports donald trump has floated the idea of buying the danish territory. the wall street journal reporting the plan does have support from some of the president's top advisors, others say it is a fleeting fascination.
he is set to make his first visit to denmark early next month. exclusive surveillance video of the failed attack on a washington ice facility. this video shows the suspect storming the facility armed with explosives and a rifle. the suspect fired at the building, set a vehicle on fire and attempted to light propane tanks to burn the facility to the ground. google staffers signing a petition to get the company to halt plans to bid on a multimillion dollar cloud contract with the customs and border protection agency. google employees, tens of thousands and hundreds of signed the petition which they posted on medium calling it unconscionable that google would support agencies engaged in caging and torching vulnerable people. trump tells israeli go as they have no choice but vote for him in 2020 instead of the democratic field, socialist and communist, fresh reaction from guy benson next. ..[chuckles]

♪ >> pocahontas is rising, you've got kamala who is falling. you've got beto, beto is like -- sleepy joe may be able to limp across the finish line. but today they announced that they are going to cut back on his appearance is because he is such a disaster. >> lots to talk about at his keep america great again rally and donald from hopes he goes head to head with joe biden. brand-new fox news polls show if primary voters were casting their ballots today that would likely happen but we have 14 months to go so jessica and guy benson, welcome to you both. new polling we have out now,
primary voters, joe biden leading the pack of 31% but elizabeth warren has leapfrogged bernie sanders, solidly in second place at 20%, sanders at 10%. we also learned within the data that she is the top pick with people under 45 and those who call themselves very liberal. what do you make of that? >> he is eating sanders lunch. she is doing quite well in particular in iowa. we have seen that in a number of polls. the first say, the opening caucus is coming up many months from now but that doesn't necessarily shock anyone because she has a strong ground game and presence in the state of iowa, she has been working it very hard, it is a very white state, she does well with white democratic voters, not so well with african-americans. she has a lot of momentum. we have yet to see her head to
head with joe biden in a debate. that will come multiple times and those will be critics of exchanges. shannon: the new york times writing this under the headline many democrats love elizabeth warren but also worry about her, they say democrats in iowa, new hampshire and south carolina were her uncompromising liberalism would alienate moderates in battleground states who would otherwise be willing to oppose the president. many fear miss warren's past claims of native american ancestry would allow mister trump to drown out her policy message. also wants to talk about her professorial feel when she is talking to people and telling them what she is going to do. what do you make of those fears? >> the new york times speaking directly to my heart. i have warren gear in the city, one of my absolute favorite in the race, joe biden and elizabeth warren as many are deciding between, the ones i feel will give the best chance
of beating donald trump. there's much more apprehension about this liberal campaign when it comes to a general election. and that data from the fox news poll which was overall for democrats, with one central finding, that keeps joe biden on top and concerns people about elizabeth one, 60% of democratic voters want a return to normalcy in washington versus just over 30% looking for a revolution or to really shake things up and elizabeth warren's campaign like bernie sanders's in 2016 is a revolution. shannon: people who urge moderation, i want to ask about this. a whisper that keeping joe biden off the trail so he will start making these gaffes. we could play them. david axelrod tweeting bad advice, you can't place the candidate and win, he can cut it or he can't and the only way he prove he can he can be an active
and vigorous candidate. he is running for president of the united states, for god's sake. response to both of you. >> i want to know who these biden people are on the team who signed up to work for joe biden knowing what he is, who he has been for decades and now they have the vapors over gaffes. this man is making lots of gaffes, let's panic. that is practically his brand, gathering all the time. he built a career in politics as a gaffe factory. of course axelrod is right. they can't just throw the candidate in a closet and hope everything works out. he has to interact with the press and voters. the strange reaching, clutching at pearls over the gaffes, this is who he is and what he does. >> i agree. a little harsh on biden throughout this ramp-up of the primary season but i do agree with him here and we have seen total resiliency and biden's
numbers. his african-american support is holding strong, where he was at 30 percentage points, people know who joe biden is including the gaffes, the interviews out of iowa from the state fair. how many voters that i know joe, i know what he stands for. there is no malice to his gaffes. they are baked into how they feel about him. >> new technology can read the fear in your face and could be sold to the new york government but bernie sanders is upset with the tech giant. our own tech giant steve bolton next. this john smith or this john smith. or any of the other hundreds of john smiths that are humana medicare advantage members. no, it's this john smith, who met with humana to create a personalized care plan. at humana, we have more ways to care for your health,
newsletter called burn notice, featuring a fiery rant against so-called corporate media. let's turn to the host of the next revolution on fox news, steve hilton. great to have you with us. what do you make of this? donald trump talks about how he has been treated by the mainstream media and bernie sanders making the same accusation that saying it because media outlets are run by billionaires, corporations that whatever treat them fairly because he criticizes them all the time. >> it is uncanny especially the washington post, tweets from the president about jeff bezos, amazon, washington post, for his companies. i think actually bernie gets pretty good press coverage especially considering how crazy some of his ideas now. he is taken seriously. he has become a big national figure over the last two years precisely because his ideas and his critiques of policy areas have been reported and he made a big impact so i don't know,
talking about one specific aspect, claims about amazon and not paying taxes. his criticisms of corporate america are well-known and often reported in the media. shannon: there's a lot of talk from folks in these organizations not happy that they may be willing to do business with the us government. thinking about the fact that we talk about there are a group of google employees that have a petition on medium where they are basically saying if you work with selling this technology to something like customs and border protection a been on contract with the government you are enabling human rights abuses. what do you make of that? >> reminds me of a phrase i first heard from a previous guest, guy benson, the politicization of everything. everything is politics was we side with the boycott against
fitness studios because of political donations and this big deal, you saw it with google as you were reporting on the border contracts but previously we saw it with google in relation to the department of defense and one after another we see these employees of companies saying we will work with the regime, the trump administration that they consider authoritarian but at the same time especially with google they will work with the chinese regime which is obviously far more authoritarian than anything you could imagine in america. and the facial recognition story which you mentioned from amazon developing facial recognition the chinese government is really deploying facial recognition in frankly orwellian ways to control the population, to block them from traveling around the country or participating in
society if they do certain things, if they do anything to criticize the government. it is frightening. shannon: we need to ask more questions how this is used here and other places and look at these technologies and ask questions. we will and always appreciate when you do too. thank you for joining us. tonight, midnight hero being hailed as russia tapped in sully sullenberger. to rush occupy crimea, a flock of seagulls. the engines flamed out, the quick thinking pilot brought the plane down safely, not in a river, not like the hudson like sully a few years ago but in a field southeast of moscow. the russians are hailing the pilot as a hero saying he saved 233 lives having masterfully landed a plane without its
