shows the bigotry throughout liberal media and throughout the democratic party. >> herman cain has died after battling the coronavirus. >> i will tell you, we have lost a giant of a person. his spirit was contagious. you get around herman, and you just felt like life was going to be okay. ♪ ainsley: 6:01 here on the east coast. thanks for waking up with us. yes, we got the news yesterday that herman cain who had run for president, he was a businessman and navy rocket scientists and he was an associate minister, he passed away yesterday from coronavirus. our thoughts and our prayers are with his family and we are going to remember him coming up in the show. brian: i mean, yeah, what a blow that is. it was stunning because i'm looking back at the stories and they said he was having trouble recovering. did he overcome cancer and able
3:02 am
to beat stage 4 cancer once. and next thing you will know we get this devastating news. we will discuss that throughout the show. what a blizzard of news yesterday. it was stunning, head-turning and we will try to put it all in perspective looking forward to what's on tap today, pete. pete: yeah, that herman cain news was a gut punch. a great man and we will cover it this morning. in other news, less than 100 days until the election and president trump not backing down on his suggestion on an election delay. ainsley: the president concerned over the mail-in voting. brian: well, he got our attention, didn't he, griff? he is in washington. democrats powngsed on this. republicans said what do you mean by this? if his goal was to get attention on mail-in voting. czech the box. griff: indeed, yeah. everybody ran for cover, brian, ainsley and pete. the president opened up a pandora's box with this tweet about postpones the election. with universal mail-in voting not absentee voting which is good. 2020 will be the most inaccurate
3:03 am
and fraud length election in history. a great embarrassment to the u.s.a.? delay the election until people can properly, securely and safely vote? he asked. he clarified the tweet at the white house. >> i don't want to delay. i want to have the election. but i also don't want to have to wait for three months and then find out that the ballots are all missing and the election doesn't mean anything. >> the biden campaign seeing an opportunity was quick to respond. >> it is really despicable. vice president biden warned back in april though that this is something that donald trump would try to do. and do you know what the response from the trump campaign was? they told us that vice president was practicing in conspiracy theories. >> potential biden running mate karen bass compared him to george wallace. he has no authority to delay the election including mitch mcconnell and kevin mccarthy were quick to knock it down.
3:04 am
meanwhile former president obama taking a shot for john lewis. >> there are those in power who are doing their darnsdest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations and targeting minorities and students with restrictive i.d. laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision. >> now only an act of congress could delay the election and it's clear congress is not going to do it. but the concerns over the mail-in voting perhaps certainly legit and going to be talked about in the coming days. the election, guys, only 94 days away, pete, brian? pete: thank you. i saw that tweet and immediately i felt like the point that he knows heads are exploding across the country, especially in washington. they will react literally from that. griff: i will see you from outside unless it's pouring. pete: he wanted to continue. meantime exactly knew. he pointed out.
3:05 am
he held up multiple reports in the so-called mainstream media with the problems of mail-in ballots. 1800 floridians who their mail ballot came after the deadline. nevada 6700 ballots rejected because didn't have signatures. pennsylvania's primary last month late ballots considered disqualified. in wisconsin's primary, this is in april. 23,000 ballots were thrown out because they missed at least one line in the form. that was the marginal of victory for donald trump in 2016. so if you are concerned about election integrity, you can train coming down the tracks if there are pushed mail-in ballots and that's the point is he trying to make. ainsley: a lot of americans don't trust the postal system because they have had budget cuts or problems in the last decade or however it has been. everyone know fuss go in person to vote. you know your vote is counted. pete: correct. ainsley: if you try to mail something, in there is a big
3:06 am
chance it's not going to get to the folks counting these ballots. if you don't believe me watch the cbs report. cbs is warning of a disaster after they did this vote by mail experiment. and it revealed potential problems within the postal voting system. so what happened is they sent out 100 mock ballots this reporter did to a post office box at the post office. and that post office box was for cbs this morning. set it up to represent a local election office. they mailed out 100 ballots. same size envelope, same class of mail as a real ballot. and listen to what happened. 97 out of the 100 did come back but three of them were missing. so 3% missing. watch this. >> in the following week, we checked our po box for the results. >> mail pick up notice. >> when we went to collect everything though. >> nothing? >> no. >> most of our votes seemed to be lost. >> that's all i have back there right now. >> are you sure? you are totally sure? >> so of our 100 ballots, 97
3:07 am
arrived. which sounds pretty good unless you consider the fact that that means 3 people who tried to vote by mail in our mock election were, in fact, disenfranchised by mail. brian: there were small elections going on in new york and new jersey. they are still counting the ballots. just think about this. if you can get to target. if you can get to home depot. if you have been doing your food shopping. don't tell me you are too concerned about your health to go to vote there are people that are concerned like they have never been before. i get it. there should be accommodations there just like there should be some type of proof handy cap sticker, some type of proof. pete: request absentee ballot. brian: just use logic. don't wait for cbs to do a report which ended up proving that trump is right. just use logic. you sit in your house. there is five ballots for your family. three of your kids 18 to 21. i'm not going to vote. you can vote for me and can you send it in. when i get around to do it you
3:08 am
click the box. dominating parents tell kids how to vote. or kids grab their parents' ballot and send it. can't we have this moment to vote for one candidate every four years and show up and put a ballot in without licking an envelope or pressing on a stamp. if you can shop for food, if you can buy liquor, can you vote once every four years. pete: it's so true. how many shared civic moments do we have in this country. brian: none. every four years. pete: just one thing can we come together, do it responsibly. if you need to request an absentee ballot as the president made very clear, that's what he is talking about. i messed up my ballot in the new jersey primary this year. i lost the secure envelope inside it. so i had to go in and vote provisionally which means my vote didn't count unless they needed it. what a mess if that's nationwide if they push ballots out to these voter roles many of which are outdated anyway. ainsley: shows how in a close election how pivotal that can be

3:10 am
question marks as to how close and what intensity we are talking about as it approaches florida. but what i can tell you is we have hurricane warnings in effect for the bahamas, so not only hurricane force winds but storm surge and flash flooding are going to be a problem over the next 12 to 24 hours. and then it comes close to florida. now, this track right now has the core of the strongest winds offshore. that's a good case scenario. however, because we are dealing with a lot of variables, upper level winds, warm water, when does it make that northern curve? how fast does it make that northern curve? we have a few question marks. the bottom line is if you live from florida all the way up to maine, you need to be paying close attention to this storm. we think the closest impact will be coastal north carolina on tuesday and then perhaps cape cod and the islands heading into tuesday night and wednesday. so, watching this very carefully. isaias is a hurricane.

3:22 am
people can properly and safely vote. really about getting the media to pay attention to the problems with mail-in voting. here to discuss is fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. gregg, i think he accomplished his goal. we are all talking about mail-in voting. do you think he sobered people up to his reality? >> yeah. i mean the president was raising the issue of legitimacy in the form of a question for goodness sakes predictably the media ran around with the hair on fire. the one journalist said the president has crosseds integrity rubicon. have you got to laugh at the hyperbole and hysteria. all you have to do is look at the several of the studies that have examined the problem of election project. heritage foundation study. special commission co-chaired by jimmy carter several years ago called this a recipe for disaster. and the reason is because, as you pointed out, the registration lists are notoriously unreliable and
3:23 am
outdated. get ballots sent to dead people. you get ballots sent to an address where the person no longer lives there. and, yet, those ballots are often returned with a vote cast. you know, in paterson, new jersey, had you 800 ballots bundled together and returned to election officials. several people indicted in king county washington, 13,000 ballots were listed as undeliverable. 300,000 ballots were unknown. this is, again, ripe for election fraud and the evidence demonstrates it. brian: yeah, don't tell me can you go to target but you can't go to the local school and katz youcastyour ballot. if you have problems, there is ways to qualify for that we get it. make sense of this. i'm in unprecedented territory. we have never seen this before. michael flynn case kicked back to the full appeals court? what does that mean? >> well, if the full appeals court follows the
3:24 am
well-established clear law, it will reach the same conclusion as the three judge panel. the case against michael flynn should and must be dismissed. a judge cannot, on his own, unilaterally perpetuate a prosecution when the prosecutors for good cause have decided to drop the case. and that's what they did here. it would be a violation of the separation of powers if a judge suddenly steps down from the bench, disrobed and decides to become a prosecutor. evidence exculpatory evidence is innocence was hidden from the defense, that's misconduct. that's reason enough for a dismissal. brian: august 11th will michael flynn have the ability to get on with his life? >> yeah. i hope so. we will wait and see. you know, this is a false accusation, wrongful prosecution. you have got the two fbi agents who interviewed flynn right down

3:39 am
called uncle tom. it's an oral history of african-american conservative. herman cain was featured very prominently in this documentary. just his life story was so incredible from growing up in a three-room house. his mother was a domestic worker, i believe, his father was a limo driver and to have risen up to become the ceo of godfather's pizza for a decade is really quite remarkable and big part of that documentary. i met herman, he was so warm and friendly and generous. i remember he told me and a lot of black conservatives that were there for that event, he just said keep on going and just work harder. i think that is what his life was all about. and he was such an amazing guy. and i'm so glad that he was so featured in that documentary because it's going to have his story in time and perpetuity so for and more people can discover it. >> rob, he was a bold antiestablishment conservative voice, black american who said hey, it doesn't matter what my
3:40 am
skin color is it matters what i believe. another -- someone similar to that is a representative, a democrat, name is vernon jones. he has been on our show multiple times, open outspoken supporter of the president. he was on another network yesterday. and here is the exchange that he was confronted with. >> are you a paid campaign surrogate? are you being compensated? >> let me be clear, you get paid to shape a liberal narrative. you get paid to attack this president. i don't get a dime from this president. i don't get a dime from the campaign. everything i has done is me and based on my principle. that's a problem when an african-american that is. >> sir, did i not raise. >> let me finish. let me finish. >> no, no, you are not going to imply i asked that question because you are black. >> so don't ask me that you only asked me that because i don't fit your narrative. >> herman cain didn't fit a lot of people's narrative, too rob. why did he confront that kind of question.
3:41 am
why did he get it? >> that's one of the most delicious television moments i have ever seen in my life. melvin was shook. so, look, the thing about fraternal trump supporters is that there is a double standard, right? if i were on one of the other networks and i sat here and bashed the president every single day like their revolving cadre of black liberal commentators do, nobody would question that when you are an african-american, you get people calling you a drifter and saying you are getting paid, whatever. representative jones made a very good point in highlighting that double standard and hypocrisy. so when i decided to start supporting the president, i was supporting the first step act that freed a lot of criminals that were in prison for nonviolent offenses. 91% of whom were african-american. i was voting for permanently funding historically black colleges and universities. right? this is what the president has done. when i decided to start supporting the president this is things actually done.
3:42 am
i write about this "always a soldier" chapter called kanye effect why black democrats are leaving democrats behind. we are leaving them behind because we know they traded us for illegal immigrants and standing up against this old structure that decides to tell us who we are or to smear us or to call us drifters or whatever just because we are not democrats. that's the reason why i wrote "always a soldier." ainsley: do you think that there are a lot of african-americans that are supporting president trump more so than we know and they just are afraid to talk about it? there was a recent study that was out and said that 62% of americans don't want to talk about who they are voting for right now. >> yeah. i think that -- i think there are a lot of black americans that are out there that are supporting the president and other republican candidates and the thing about it is that what these people. to do black entertainers athletes, actors, whatever they want to shame people for their vote. particularly black people that support the president.
3:43 am
so i think that there is a large amount of people that are out there that are just staying silent that will pull the lever. what i will also say and i write about this in always a soldier as well. is that there are black trump supporters that have faced actual physical violence. i write about multiple examples of this. and that is another thing that people are weary about as well. these are african-american black trump supporters that were physically attacked for wearing make america great again caps. were physically attacked for wearing clothing that supports the president. so that is a thing that people are very weary of as well. brian: one just got stabbed in portland. he was on with tucker last night. thanks so much, rob. always great to have you on. ainsley: thanks, rob. >> thanks, guys. brian: my honor to be up janice dean going to really hit florida i understand we are hoping that it just skirts florida. south carolina and north carolina need to monitor this system, brian, ainsley and pete and all of you if you live along

the east coast from south florida to maine, you need to be watching isaias because it became a hurricane last night. there's the possibility it actually might strengthen in the next 12 to 24 hours as it makes its way across the bahamas. this gfs model actually has it making an impact to south carolina and just kind of moving inland along the coast from the weekend up towards monday and tuesday. so, we're going to have to really watch things over the next 24 to 48 hours to really get an accurate forecast. there is a lot of the variables we are watching in terms of computer models. the red shaded line here is the actual national hurricane center forecast. and the worst of the core of the winds remain offshore until we come close to the carolinas. so that's when we are going to have to really take a look at it. i think for now we can safely say that the east coast of florida. even though you are not out of the woods it more and more looks like the core of the strongest winds will remain offshore. you are still going to get the

potential for tropical storm force winds some storm surge and some heavy rainfall for florida and then as we get into the latter part of the weekend, the carolinas need to monitor the storm. but, this is going to be a hurricane for the next several days and maybe even strengthen in the next 12 to 24 hours. we will keep you posted. brian, pete, and ainsley, back to you. brian: did i hear -- thanks, janijanuaryjanis hamper the cors well. pete: jillian mele has additional headlines for us as well. >> president trump promising justice for the family of fort hood soldier have a miss is a gillilan. >> very hard i saw what happened to your daughter vanessa a spectacular person and respected and loved by everybody including in the military. we're going to look into it very powerfully and we already have started as you know.

4:05 am
terrorists. listen to the president. >> these protesters. and many should be arrested because these are professional agitators. these are professional anarchists. these are people that hate our country. we're telling them we are coming in soon the national guard. these are people that not just have to guard the courthouse and save it. these are people that are allowed to go forward and do what they have to do. i think that makes the governor's job and the mayor's job a lot easier. they are working today and probably tomorrow to clean out this behive of terrorists and slowly we can start to leave the city. if they don't do it, we will be sending in the national guard. ainsley: let's bring in acting dhs secretary chad wolf to find out the latest in portland. good morning to you. >> good morning. ainsley: good morning. how did it work last night? >> it worked fairly well. what we saw is we saw a robust contingent of oregon state police come into the area yesterday afternoon together with portland police bureau.
4:06 am
they cleaned out the parks across the street from the courthouse and what we saw overnight is almost little to no criminal activity. and that really is how it should be. it reinforces the principle if you work with federal state and local law enforcement work together we can protect our communities. we can secure our communities. we can secure federal properties and protect law enforcement officers. this is what we have been asking for or over 60 days and i'm glad oregon and portland has finally accepted up to the challenge. brian: you the way i understand it there were 100 state troopers there guarding and you guys were standing by should something go wrong. all you asked ted wheeler to do is use his state police to guard federal buildings. whehe wouldn't, had you no choi. the mayor makes you the bad guy and now you sit there now finally the governor saw that you weren't backing down and did what you asked him to do all along. does that feel good to a degree? >> well, brian, it certainly reinforce what is we have been saying all along we are going to
4:07 am
continue to courthouse. that's our job and responsibility. we are not backing away from that what we have been asking portland and oregon to do to police city streets, police city parks. do their jobs and arrest individuals that are committing criminal acts. and finally, after over 60 days. they have decided to step up and do their job. unfortunately, within those 60 days we have had over 240 dhs law enforcement officers injured because of the criminal and violent activity every night. pete: mr. secretary, over those 60 days have you seen a lot of violence. which is required use of force people protecting federal property the mayor there, mayor ted wheeler is he not staring down those people and locking them up instead is he apologizing. >> i apologize to those nonviolent demonstrators who were subjected to the use of cs gas or orad it. should never have happened. i take personal responsibility for it.
4:08 am
and i'm sorry. i also want to draw a clear distinction between the portland police use the cs gas and what we are seeing the federal officers use. the federal officers are using cs gas broadly, indiscriminately and nightly. and that is why it is escalating the behavior we are seeing on the streets rather than descalating it. pete: so are the rules of engagement for federal officers there to use gas broadly on peaceful protesters? >> absolutely not. what the mayor quoted just now is completely inaccurate. i believe he knows it to be inaccurate. but, again, is he putting politics over public safety. what we know is there are nonviolent peaceful protests that the occur in portland that occur around that courthouse every day. and there are no issues. the violent criminal activity that the mayor is, again, not telling you the truth about occurs between midnight and 5:00
4:09 am
a.m. every morning and it is violent, violent criminals and other opportunists, violent opportunists that are attacking that courthouse and that's what we are concerned about. there are no peaceful protesting going on at 3:30 and 4:00 a.m. in the morning at that courthouse. that occurs earlier in the day and there are no issues. so the mayor is intentionally confusing issues and, again, playing politics over public safety. ainsley: if you just think about common sense here. look, peaceful protest, you don't need tear gas, right? we all agree you can peaceably protest. when it gets violent and see all these videos of tons of people going toward like 10 or 15 officers that are trying to guard a monument or a courthouse and i am worried about their safety. and when you have individuals throwing rocks and bottles at them, the police officers in portland found recently a sledge hammer, gas cans. and so these officers were asking them to go out there and then what are they supposed to do when these crowds start coming for them? tear gas is not going to kill
4:10 am
you. it's going to keep the violent people away from hurting our police officers. what do you make of the increase of violence? >> take a very defensive posture in doing that engage the violent individuals to push them back away from the fence line that we have established there what we have been saying all along these individuals shouldn't be able to congregate in city parks and city streets to do this violent activity. we have been asking for 60 days for portland police to do their job, for whatever reason it took 60 days it took my law enforcement 245 injuries. over 90 arrests for them to step up and to do their job. i'm glad they are here. i'm glad they're partnering with us we can hopefully bring this to a peaceful conclusion very quickly. brian: demonstrating outside of your house and doing it outside the police commissioner's house.
4:11 am
around the nypd commissioner's house. >> this is the new trend go to their house, even the liberal mayors are getting protested there vow got to worry about your own security. in the big picture. do the federal troops, excuse me, agents move out of portland and if so what date and are you going to leave seattle as well as we head to a weekend where they tell you you can't use legally the city council said you are not supposed to use a fence? >> there in portland we are remaining in portland. all of our dhs officers that have been there over the past 60 day also remain there in portland until we are assured that the plan that has been put in place by the governor and oregon state police will be effective night after night after night. yesterday or last night was the first night that they have been deployed. what we know are the weekends are more violent, so we are going to remain there until we are assured that that courthouse is safe and secure. other cities like seattle that you mentioned and others we have -- as we get intelligence
4:12 am
and threat information that federal properties are targeted, we send in stand by teams of law enforcement personnel. and when that threat passes, we remove those teams. so it's very much like we do every other day of the year with law enforcement arranged the country. pete: mr. secretary, real quick, exit question, what is the threshold by which the national guard would be deployed. we have heard the president talk about that in portland. >> sure. well, i think, again, we have got to see if the oregon state police put together an effective plan. if they don't and the criminal activity continues there at the courthouse. and the oregon state police are overrun. then that's certainly an option that the president has continued to talk about. it's certainly an option that we will look at. but we are looking forward to oregon state police and others there. portland police that are now involved in this issue, we hope that they will do their job. ainsley: thank you so much, chad wolf, for being with us. we appreciate it. pete: appreciate it, sir. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. to say extreme weather now overnight. tropical storm isaias strengthening to a category 1 hurricane as it approaches the

america, are laying off people, is they have to balance their budgets. their budgets have to be balanced. they can't have a deficit. ainsley: both sides are saying the other side is playing political games. isn't it just more of republicans and democrats they disagree and they don't want to vote for something they don't like? how can they come together? because it expires today. >> look, i think that has to be a question how do we come together? how do we heal? i think we need to look at this and respond to joe biden, number one and say, listen, my mission, the president's mission is not politics. my mission is america. that's very, very serious. i don't forget that from my time on the battlefield and i don't forget that during my time in congress. we look at that and come to it from this perspective. we don't look at tangled say well, should it be 1 trillion or 3 trillion or 5 trillion. what assistance do americans need and what assistance do americans look at and say no, listen. i'm capable of doing that myself. and i think that's where you get into those socialist ideologies of standard sanders and biden wy
4:33 am
want to make sure that they give everybody everything that's their mentality. they think americans are capable of nothing. you and i, we know that challenge shows us what we're capable of. and i think it's very unfortunate that that is the way that they look at us, that we don't have capability. we do. we are tough. we are not made of glass. we don't break when you develop us and we can overcome. pete: joe biden sounds horrible. he has already made his bed with bernie sanders. we know the deals that have been made behind the scenes. somehow a republican, can leadership staring down nancy pelosi who is always demanding more as you pointed out. how do you hold the line to stay targeted and temporary to make sure the assistance is getting to people who want to get back to work so we reopen our economy because we had to shut it down because of the virus that china gifted us. how do you hold that line? >> you go out there and you bring up the facts. you bring up the truth that they don't want to hear which is why they are not having these conversations in committee after committee after committee going
4:34 am
after there and allowing the debate to occur because they don't want to hear the real questions raised. they don't want to hear the real answers come about of where people are thursdaying and where are some of the policies that have been put in place. hurting businesses. preventing people from coming back to work where you literally, i get calls every single day from businesses across my community saying i can't get people to come back to work the fact of the matter is they're getting paid more in the state unemployment and the federal unemployment together than what they are going to get paid coming back to work. they are getting paid $25 an hour to be at home and we can't compete with that. ainsley: congressman mast, thank you so much for being with us. >> you are welcome. pete: thank you, sir. ainsley: this morning we are remembering herman cain the former presidential candidate passed away after being diagnosed with coronavirus. allen west called kaine one of his closest friends and he joins us live next to reflect on kaine's life and legacy.

4:40 am
people are going to see in me is a problem-solver, not a politician. >> but 999 is my favorite number. >> no kidding? >> my sense of humor is not going to go away so they may as well get used to it. >> herman cain, great to see you. >> good to see you all. ainsley: thanks, herman. brian: the life of herman cain came to an end yesterday at 74 years old. lost his battle with the covid virus. he got it about a week to 10 days it seems after the tulsa event and that seemed to be what every other network was focused on. that is not what lieutenant colonel allen west is focused on. good friends focused in a recent documentary. i know he was there for you after your accident, colonel. what was it like for you when you got the news? >> well, it was very heart-breaking. it's a pleasure to be with each and every one of you. the relationship between herman cain and i, i mean, we were both born and raised in atlanta, georgia. we used to always joke about his high school and mine grady who had the best band and prettiest
4:41 am
girls and things of that nature. really his was a black life that truly mattered it. didn't just matter that mattered just not to black but all americans. i think my wife angela took it to the hardest because when she was a business professor at kansas state university. she specialized in marketing and finance. she had herman cain come to speak there in manhattan kansas for one of her seminars and of course we just had herman in our home back on june 18th, right before the premier of the documentary uncle tom, but, for me as a conservative he was incredible mentor that you could look up to. he was a man that worked at navy civilian, instrumental in the rocket assisted projectile artillery officer in the army that was something that we utilized. pete: colonel, he broke the mold. i mean, we see a businessman in the white house right now. here is a successful business man, antiestablishment, tea party guy. everybody learned his name with
4:42 am
the 999 plan in 2012. weighs atop the list for a while. what did he understand about american politics, about being a patriot that put him ahead of that curve? >> well, first and foremost, herman cain was the embodiment of the american dream. when you think about a man who really did come from, you know, the lowest level of economic levels in the united states of america. his father was a simple, you know, chauffeur. drove for the chairman of the coca cola corporation bob woodruff. but, yet, he understood the american dream. and that's what he lived to go and become that navy civilian that developed a rocket assisted pro-seq. tile technology. ceo of godfather's. the head of the national restaurant association to run for president. that's the story we want to tell. when you look at what is going on in our inner cities across the united states of america, we should be elevating herman cain. we should be setting him up as a model and example of what the
4:43 am
indomitable entrepreneurial spirit of america is all about. ainsley: i didn't even know he was sick. so when i got the fox news alert yesterday i was so saddened because his personality is bigger than life. he would walk in our studios and was always happy. he had such a resume. i was just proud of him. and when i got that news i didn't even know he was sick. did you talk to him while he was sick? did you -- did he call you? how is his wife dealing with this and the kids? >> it's tiff on gloria we did get a chance to going through sickness. we all learned of his sickness and it was after that rally in tulsa. shame on the people in the left wing liberal progressive media for attacking him from a political aspect. this was a great life. and it just shows how despicable they are in some of these news media outlets. but the thing is, we are all in touch with the family and be there to support them and we are just waiting on the date for his
4:44 am
home going. his celebration of life service, which i'm sure will be quite well attended. brian: interesting. i know everybody has been talking about it. and he was a major broadcasting presence as well as a business presence and a political presence. on a separate note, i know you are running everything in texas these days. you won the election to represent the texas g.o.p. the president was down there a couple of days ago in your mind and polls reveal texas is in play. do you sense on the ground there is a regret for texas to be such a magnet and go aggressive to get others from other states because they seem to have brought in many cases a liberal mind set that texas didn't have. >> i was there in odessa with the president a couple days ago i'm out in el paso right now. you are right. i think the important question to ask a lot of people coming here from california, illinois, new york, new jersey, is welcome to texas. why are you here?
4:45 am
brian: california. >> california, yeah. we have to engage them and ask them why would you try to bring the same failed policies and ideologies and beliefs when you fled from a place that economically was failing you come here to texas. so, in odessa, we don't want to see a green new deal, joe biden and his no fracking, no drilling. we don't want that here in texas. i think you are going to see incredible number to come out to reject the social list left and their policies. pete: good luck in that battle there is a reason you came to texas to get away from the policies you shouldn't drag along with you. lieutenant colonel allen west thank you for your time. godspeed. >> my pleasure, thank you. pete: toss it now to janice dean tracking the hurricane. bahamas and potentially florida. janice? >> thank you, pete. yeah. we are watching the latest from the hurricane center. that advisory coming out at 8:00 a.m. and we will bring you the very latest. it was upgraded to a hurricane last night. it is going to bring at least hurricane force winds as well as
4:46 am
flash flooding to the bahamas and the storm surge as well. there is the potential for this storm to strengthen further perhaps to a accurate 2 in the next 12 to 24 hours as the waters are very warm around the bahamas. hurricane warnings in place. tropical storm watch for the coast of florida right now. the sea surface temperatures, i mean that is incredibly warm. close to 90 degrees close to freeport and bahamas. it has a lot of warm water to help it strern. the problem is we have a lot offer level winds to batter. this does the warm cover win out or will this strengthen further. tropical storm models keep the center of the storm offshore florida. we have to really watch it as it comes closer to the carolinas and up towards the northeast coast next week. pete, anxiously, and brian, back to you. ainsley: thanks, janice. okay, jillian is upstairs. and she has headlines for us. jillian: good morning we start
4:47 am
with this. a black conservative journalist is speaking out after being stabbed in the back during violent protests in portland. andrew says the attacker an antifa member missed his spinal cord by inches. telling our own tucker carlson americans need to expose antifa. >> i am more so want to turn this into a message to tell everybody that they need to wake up and people need to start exposing antifa for who they truly are that's a domestic terrorist organization. >> blake can be arrested on second degree assault charges. is he currently being held on bail. new shark patrols on long island following another citing off the east coast. there have been at least 10 sightings off beaches monday. meantime a 21-year-old reels in a 400-pound bull shark on a fishing trip. he joined us earlier on catching the beast. >> i didn't really know what it was when i was fighting it. over that course of the 2 and a half hours. once you finally landed it i was

[laughter] is there anything they can nibble on in the forest. pete: easier food. ainsley: they tip it over. there is trash all over the driveway. brian: what is long island known for sharks and it's bears. ainsley: people tell me i need a lock. brian: disappearance of jimmy hoffa.

4:54 am
files that have been heavily redacted fully released because i believe the truth is in those files. our special on fox nation riddle the search for james r. hoffa looks at the claims that hoffa was taken to a mob meeting in detroit july 30th, 1975. he thought he was meeting with notorious general we crime family who hated his guts. hoffa wanted to regain the presidency of the union and clean the union up from the mafia. that's why they whacked him. the fbi file that we have seen names one of his tony pro's guys in new jersey sally bugs blug as the person who organized the murder and reported back. the fbi couldn't make a case because sally buggs he was whacked in little italy after hoffa was murdered. the hoffa family james p. hoffa, the president of the teamsters his daughters retired judge they want all these fbi files to be

case. pete: eric, we will see if we get those files. do you think you know where jimmy hoffa was buried based on this? >> well. there is the claim that he is buried in that dump. there is also a claim that he possibly was then moved to another location in new jersey. we have several sources who say the body was brought to new jersey, others say it was incinerated in detroit or buried northern michigan. right now our special riddle focuses on this new jersey angle. very strongly and we will continue. we want those files released. pete: good work. eric shawn riddled. on fox nation. get it until august 22nd get a free copy of sean hannity's new book "live free or die" by signing up for a two year plan. more "fox & friends" on the other side. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

5:02 am
in mathematics and got a master's degree in computer science, so he's very smart, he was the vice president of company and became ceo of godfather's pizza. he leaves behind wife children and grandchildren. brian: self-made success story which makes more intriguing. ainsley: exactly. brian: he beat cancer and looked like olympic athlete last time we saw him. we will talk about herman cain a little bit later. pete: all eyes on capitol hill as democrats reject short-term deal to extend unemployment benefits which expire today. ainsley: griff jenkins outside the white house, can they get a deal today
5:03 am
because it expires soon? griff: that's right, good morning to you, ainsley, the short answer is it's not looking good. late last night speaker pelosi and minority schumer rejecting a deal that the treasury secretary steven mnuchin and mark meadows had been offering short-term proposal, close temporary extension of benefits which as you point out tonight add midnight like cinderella the extra 600-dollar unemployment benefits goes entirely away that is after the white house had been trying to work for anything just to take care of the one piece, remember, democrats and republicans are miles a part on any sort of larger phase 4 deal. pelosi already passing her 3 trillion-dollar hero's act. so what does former vice president joe biden do, he says last night in virtual appearance for the american federation of teachers that this is all the
5:04 am
fault of the president and the senate majority leader, listen. >> now, first and foremost, trump and mcconnell have to stop playing political games with the hero's act which allows for billions of dollars to go to state and local federal governments. as you know the reason cities, counties and states all across america are laying off people is they have the balance their budgets, their budgets have to be balanced. they can't have a deficit. griff: so here how bad it really is, guys. senator mcconnell, majority leader mitch mcconnell is set up vote early next -- perhaps as early as monday on a way leaner option which would be a short-term interim basis extension of the benefits at $200 extra a week of unemployment benefits, not 600 but it's not even clear that he has support of all republicans let alone democrats.
5:05 am
mcconnell tweeting yesterday that here is fact of life. it takes 60 votes to legislate and democrats will have to come to the table if they want to. we have to wait and fine -- find out. we know that pelosi, schumer and meadows will talk over the weekend by right now things working out on a quick deal are much like the weather, gloomy, steve, brian, ainsley. brian: they couldn't be further apart. griff, thanks so much. mark meadows said they were further apart than ever before. if both sides wanted to get things done they would have taken republicans up on the offer and extend $600 for another week because it ends up today. if they say if you get something done, if you worry about the american people you would have done that. mitch mcconnell should have talking about this a lot earlier. the hope is we wouldn't need a recess cue package. we want to make clear we did and lawmakers shouldn't have been working on this. it's got to come from congress
5:06 am
and they put together this ridiculous 3 trillion-dollar monstrosity in the house and they can say, i've got it, i'm holding it, what do you have republicans and they didn't have anything. congressman brian was here and he talked about it. >> my mission, the president's mission america, it's not politics. i don't forget that during time in battlefield and i don't forget that during time in congress. we don't look at it and say should it be 1 trillion, 3 trillion or 5 trillion, what assistance do americans need and what assistance do americans say, listen, i can do that myself. you get into socialist ideologies of sanders and biden. they think americans are capable of nothing. brian: that's what they think, we will see what happens.
5:07 am
meadows and mnuchin on the right and pelosi and schumer on the left. pete: speaking to see what happens, we continue to monitor portland. clashes again last night, maybe little bit less, they cleared up the park. oregon state police have stepped in but the president and they've done a bit of a transfer from federal authorities but still a lot of lack of clarity about what will happen if this continues. the president chimed in on that yesterday threatening to send the national guard to portland if oregon won't take control. listen. >> these protestors and many should be arrested because these are professionals agitators, these are professionals anarchists, these are people that hate our country. we are telling them right now that we are coming in very soon, the national guard, these are not people that just have to guard the courthouse. these are people that are allowed to go forward and do what they have to do and i think that makes the governor's job and the mayor's job a lot easier. they are working today and
5:08 am
probably tomorrow to clean out this beehive of terrorists and slowly we can start to leave the city. if they don't do it, we will be sending in the national guard. pete: ainsley, we may get the national guard but the only reason we got the oregon state police because the president was willing to send federal reinforcements because the state wasn't taking control of it. ainsley: right, they finally said they would step in and we interviewed chad wolf, things were better last night but there's still been 60 plus days to have protests and there has been some sort of an issue every single night. the mayor there issued an apology. did y'all see this? i don't know if you at home did. he issued an apology for overstepping boundaries. he takes full responsibility for our police department using teargas. here is chad wolf who was on our show earlier, listen. >> we are going to continue to secure the courthouse, the seat of justice in portland. that's our job and that's our
5:09 am
responsibility and we are not backing away from that and what we have been asking portland and oregon to do is to police city streets, police city parks, do their jobs and arrest individuals that are committing criminal acts and finally over 60 days they've decided to step up and do their job and unfortunately within the 60 days we've had over 240 dhs law enforcement officers injured because of criminal and violent activity every night. brian: that was chad wolf. let's see if this weekend goes relatively quiet. my fingers are crossed but my hope is small. let's talk about what is happening with big-tech companies and in terms of persuading opinion. israeli congress was asking twitter executives why -- what goes into your school of thought when you ban people like the president of the united states and greenlight people like iran supreme commander leader who says things like i'd like to
5:10 am
wipe israel off the face of the earth. listen to this exchange. tell me what you gain from this. >> you recently started flagging the tweets of president trump, why have you not flagged the tweets of iran's iatola? >> action with public figures, issues of the day or foreign policies of the day, military issues are generally not in violation. >> genocide is okay but comments from politicians is not? calling for genocide on twitter is okay but commenting on political situations in certain countries is not okay? >> if the world leader violates our rules but it is clear interest in keeping that up in the service provide more context. brian: unbelievable. twitter needs competition and after this they will get it on a
5:11 am
level. israeli got into the matter. pete: domestic bias against supporters of the president is evident and beyond evident on twitter and when you bring it to international stage and you say you're downplaying the tweets of the president, the leader to have free world but allowing this man right here to tweet about destruction of israel, it's clear, we had state department special envoy to combat anti-semitism and fled iran as a child on the program earlier to provide perspective. listen. >> never has there not been consequence to hatred and visit rail that's -- vitriol that's all over twitter. he is vitriol when he played out 9-step plan to eliminate history. this is a long history that this
5:12 am
man calling erasing israel off the face of the earth. ainsley: all right, do you have an ayatollah that says wipe israel -- pete: county gone. >> ainsley: two countries, death to both of them but yet he is not flagged but the president of the united states for saying things that some people don't agree with is flagged. this is twitter statement. direct interactions with public figures, comments on political issues of the day, foreign policy saber rattling are generally not in violation of twitter rules. if a tweet from world leader does violate twitter rules but there's a clear public interest value to keeping the tweet on the service, we may place it behind a notice that provides context about the violation.

the national hurricane forecast is the red-shaded model here and as you can see most of them have the core of the strongest winds offshore, again, we could see the potential for this to be a cat 2 storm within the next 12 to 24 hours as the water is very warm in the bahamas. there's your forecast precipitation. as you can see the worst remains offshore from florida, that's the current thinking but as we get two into the carolinas that's where we could see direct impact and perhaps landfall later sunday into monday and tuesday. all right, pete and brian and ainsley, back to you, we will continue to track it. pete: thank you, janice, former president obama's eulogy for late congressman john lewis turning into politically charged attack against president trump. the niece of dr. martin luther king alveda king reacts to that coming up next.

jillian: good morning and welcome back. rescue efforts underway after a military training accident off the coast of southern california, one marine has been killed, 8 service members are still missing, two others hurt in the accident involving assault vehicle. this video of the type of training they were doing at the time. today dr. anthony fauci will testify before lawmakers on the
5:28 am
urgent need for a national coronavirus strategy. dr. fauci will join cdc head dr. robert redfield and bret gerard before the house select subcommittee, currently more than 150,000 americans have died from the virus with more 4.4 million cases. e-mail from epstein to maxwell released in sex trafficking case, judge denied maxwell's request to stop the public release of 2015 civil case against her. in one e-mail epstein tells maxwell, quote, you have done nothing wrong and i would urge you to stop acting like it, go outside not as escaping convict. documents also revealing how surprised one epstein accuser was when she saw former president bill clinton on epstein's private island.
5:29 am
maxwell pleaded not guilty. ainsley: former president obama delivering sharp criticism of president trump during eulogy of congressman john lewis. >> those in pow whore are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations and targeting minorities and students with restrictive id laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision even undermining the postal service in the runup to an election that's going to be depended on mail-in ballots so people don't get sick. ainsley: joining me now the niece of dr. martin luther king, jr. dr. alveda king. >> good morning, how are you today? ainsley: as we were watching that it sounded more like a campaign or a rally. i thought it was wonderful that the former president came to honor his friend mr. lewis,
5:30 am
congressman lewis but he was talking about politics, what did you think of it? >> well, i guess we should have expected that the left including president obama would take that occasion for a political moment. they'll grab any opportunity, that's to be understood. i have chosen not to politicize the death of congressman lewis but remember as peaceful nonviolent warrior and encourage everyone to solve problems peacefully. however, president obama took us back to 1960's and that was a time when segregation was still on the books, segregation was still legal and those in power some of them were trying to enforce that and keep that. today when the national guard goes in or state troopers, they are trying to protect the people of america in every community and to save lives and protect
5:31 am
people. there is a totally distinct difference. also implying without calling any names he was very clever not to call any names saying that there was an effort to undermine the voting process. you know, actually president trump is saying, people, please pay attention, we do want you to vote, use your absentee ballots, go to the polls. he's even encouraged, you know, people to be poll watchers and poll workers and that kind of thing. president trump is not trying to suppress the vote. as a matter of fact, you can see in my community, i'm telling everybody make sure you vote, register to vote, pastors, leaders encourage your people to vote. we do want people to vote safely and we need the voting process to be fair and so to politicize the funeral of a peaceful warrior, i mean, i guess they grabbed an opportunity to be political, also really quickly,
5:32 am
the pastor of ebenez baptist church quoted that jesus died to protect us and he said that by john lewis' wound we were healed. oh, my god, isaiah53. ainsley: dr. king, thank you for weighing in on this. >> thank you. ainsley: you're welcome, have a good weekend. less than 100 days until the election and president trump is not backing down on his suggestion of election delay. the president concerned over mail-in voting. just how real is the problem? white house senior policy adviser steven miller joins us next. i'm greg, i'm 68 years old.
5:33 am
i do motivational speaking in addition to the substitute teaching. i honestly feel that that's my calling-- to give back to younger people. i think most adults will start realizing that they don't recall things as quickly as they used to or they don't remember things as vividly as they once did. i've been taking prevagen for about three years now. people say to me periodically, "man, you've got a memory like an elephant." it's really, really helped me tremendously. prevagen. healthier brain. better life.

5:36 am
>> i want to have the election but i also don't want to have the wait for 3 months and then find out that the ballots are
5:37 am
all missing and the election doesn't mean anything. do i want to see a date change, no, but i don't want to see a crooked election. this election would be the most rigged election in history if that happens. pete: that was president trump at the white house yesterday and this morning we are joined from the white house by steven miller, senior policy adviser. steven, thanks for joining the program this morning. you knew when the president tweeted earlier in the day about mail-in ballots, pushing out ballots to voters and suggests if we can't do it right delay the election heads would explode and he did. he took that to podium, fraud with mail-in ballots. explain what the white house is wanting to defend integrity in election? >> the president brought attention to catastrophic
5:38 am
problem of universal mail-in ballots. here is a shocking thing for your audience to consider. nobody who mails in a ballot has identity confirmed, nobody checks to see if they are even a u.s. citizen. think about that, any foreign national, talk about foreign election interference and nobody can verify if they're a citizen of the united states of america. this would be happening on a scale of potentially millions of people. in fact, in the democrats' hero's act, bill for coronavirus relief, they have a provision in there barring voter identification as part of any mail-in balloting. that is insane. ainsley: we just did a segment with alveda king talking about john lewis' funeral, president obama got political at the funeral and saying those in power discouraging things from voting, closing poll locations,
5:39 am
targeting minorities, redistrictive law id's and undermining the postal service. do you think the president is doing any of that? >> you're right, that was shockingly political for a funeral service but it's also totally disconnected from reality. it is outrageously false. how can anybody claim that it is voter suppression to ask if somebody who is voting, if john smith is really john smith, that's it, just saying you are who you say you are, you live where you say you live, presenting just a simple id to say who i say i am. the thing that you wouldn't present an id to vote in an election it's simple, one citizen, one vote. brian you watch the eulogy which turned to campaign rally and i
5:40 am
see that barack obama raised $24 million for joe biden, i'm just wondering. i know you're not on the campaign side, political side but does the president feel like he's running against barack obama or joe biden? >> well, as you know, joe biden is stuck in a basement somewhere and he just emerges now and again and somebody hands him note card and says whatever 23-year-old staffer tells him to say and disappears to be seen a week later. as for former president obama the reality is that for 8 years he delivered nothing but failure and betrayal to the people of this country. he sold off our factories to china, he left our borders to ms13 and allowed violent crime to plague our cities and did nothing as we are doing right now, as president trump is doing right now to send in law enforcement to save young black lives in cities like chicago.
5:41 am
pete: stephen, as you know, back to mail out ballots, the states are mailing out to people and you don't know necessarily who is sending it in but in the spring of this year, more votes were discounted in a primary in wisconsin that were the difference in the vote in the election in 2016, so back to my original question, what can be done at the white house to pressure states to actually do validated in-person voting as opposed to allowing secretaries of state to say, hey, we are going to mail this one in? stephen: one of the things that we need to do is raise awareness so citizens can put pressure on local leaders and governors to fight universal balloting. that's a critical issue. obviously the department of justice has a responsibility to look at all issues relating to voter fraud in this country, but you want to talk about voter suppression, you want to talk about denying people the franchise, that's what universal mail-in ballots are all about. universal mail-in ballots are an attempt to dilute the vote of
5:42 am
your viewers. it's an attempt to dilute the vote of americans who want to have their identities verified by allowing for massive fraud. that is scandalous. ainsley: we hear from a lot of people, they are sick of covid, they are tired of every morning it's violence going on in the country, our country is so broken right now. we are watching what's happening in portland, people who support the federal government and what is your take on what is happening in portland? stephen: what is happening in portland is brave federal officers standing in chaos and defending civilization. that courthouse in portland is symbol of american democracy. it's a symbol of american freedom and symbol to the whole world of what the country represents. donald trump said you will not burn the courthouse down, not on
5:43 am
our watch. if it was left up to the to thef portland and the governor of oregon, the white house would be ash, smoke, rubble and those federal officers endure night after night of assault, 245 incidents of assault and they didn't back down and defended the courthouse and now under pressure from this president and this administration, they sent in state police to support our federal law enforcement and to clear the streets of rioters. that's an example of presidential leadership. that's the difference between a president who defends law abiding citizens and a democrat party that has sided with rioters and sided with looters and whatever -- arsonists of the worst kind. brian: we need another rescue package, the virus flared up and people are still out and down, so why did the republicans wait so long to come up with a proposal when the democrats put
5:44 am
together a monstrosity but they were done with it weeks ago and now at a deadline and yesterday the democrats refused the republicans offer of extending the $600 a week while you hash it out. what were you guys doing? >> what we were doing mounting the largest mobilization to fight the china virus that any country has had to world war ii. you're right, the democrats did put forward a monstrosity. this administration has been clear throughout that we support a generous extension of unemployment benefits, we support protecting people who are renting, people with mortgages and taking care of our workers. it's a question of democrats needing to reject the extreme voices in their own party demanding crazy partisan rioters, if they do that, we will have a deal tomorrow.
5:45 am
pete: stephen, what's the redline of the white house, what has to be in it and what cannot? >> i think the simple thing is the red line is that the bill has to put needs of american workers and families first. we are not going to use the bill as an excuse to do crazy -- >> pete: can you be specific? >> i'm not going to on your show outline red lines while we have cabinet negotiating with capitol hill. i'm just going to say that this president is focused as has been on day one on the china virus and protect american workers and families unlike democrats who are pushing to put illegal aliens before american citizens. ainsley: all right, stephen, thank you very much for joining us this morning. janice is tracking this hurricane, concern in carolinas, janice. janice: yes, absolutely, yesterday we were thinking that this could have direct impact on florida, now the latest tracking
5:46 am
shows parallelling the florida coast and perhaps making direct impact on the carolinas. 80-miles-per-hour sustained wind storm. isaias is the name and we are going to track it as it can potentially get stronger in bahamas, warm water ahead of the storm and then if it doesn't make a landfall or direct impact on land, that's going to give it some time to strengthen, so we are concerned with that. looks like florida, the worst of the core of the rain and winds will remain offshore but this computer model shows a scrape south carolina and north carolina and then watch it as it moves up towards the northeast. we will get new information at 11:00 a.m. still parallelling the coast of florida but as we get into sunday, monday and tuesday, all eyes on the carolinas and then up towards the northeast coast and even new england cape cod and the islands could be impacted. here is our models that go into
5:47 am
cone of uncertainty and certainly in fairly good agreement but we are still going to have to watch the coast of florida they could still see direct-indirect impacts and flash flooding, so we will continue to monitor it. next advisory comes out at 11:00 a.m. and we will have further details, but we could actually see some strengthening in the next 12 to 24 hours, back to you ainsley, and brian, and pete. brian: janice, thanks, i know you will be back with us if anything changes. presumptive democratic nominee joe biden to make final selection of vp any day now but our next guest says he already botched the big decision. can't wait to see how this comes and, can leave you feeling extremely sad out. overwhelmed by bipolar depression?

candidates and, of course, only one will be picked and the others will be disappointed and i think lose enthusiasm. pete: governor, what do you think it's the biggest calculation inside the campaign right now? what are they looking to do to expand the map, sure up the base, where do you think their heads is at? >> you know, it's hard for my head to imagine that campaign doing calculations, but the fact is that what i think they are trying to do is sure up the far-left side of the party, the party that -- the part of the party that they have drifted to so dramatically with the green new deal and expansion of role of government. i think that's where they are going to go. ainsley: who do you think he will pick? do you think it's kamala harris? that's the people are going with right now. >> one can only hope. ainsley: why do you say that? >> she brings tons of baggage.

5:55 am
thought it was about a 60 second segment and he used tons of material and i think he did a great job. look, the president was a die-hard baseball fan. 1991 was the 50th anniversary. we had plan to get demaggio and williams to get to white house, sign baseballs and then we tucked them in air force one. we had them locked up away from everyone for an hour and a half as we flew to toronto to all-star game where the president threw the first ball but having the opportunity to listen to ted williams and joe demaggio talk baseball was one e of the highlights of being in the white house. >> you got to be there behind the scenes seeing no one else did and with fox nation you will bring the viewers behind the scene. the special is baseball at the white house on fox nation, governor sununu thank you so
