♪. pete: welcome to "fox & friends." it is january 24th, 2021, year of our lord. welcome to the four hour tour all morning long. i will announce a few of them. today is national compliment day. if i say, will, you made a fantastic addition to our team. glad you're here. will: you're hair is looking nice today.
pete: thank you. bobby pin was in. will: green is wonderful, jedediah. happy sunday to you. jedediah: i hate to stop the love-fest. i'm used you guys compliment each other. you can't compliment each other. this is a hell of a way to start the morning. will: national compliment day day. you have to follow the rules. jedediah: good morning to everyone joining us at home. we look forward to a packed four hours to come. we'll begin with this, president biden making first round of calls for world leaders since taking office. reverse trump immigration policies and form a new trade deal with the uk. david spunt is live in washington with more on the demands for the new administration. reporter: good morning. the new commander-in-chief made several phone calls to our neighbors to the north and south, mexico and canada, also the prime minister of great
britain. the call to prime minister justin trudeau. president biden talked heavily about the keystone xl pipeline which is interesting because justin trudeau, the canadian leader expressed disappointment with the president's order to halt construction of the keystone xl pipeline which begins in canada and runs through the united states. >> it is not always going to be perfect alignment with the united states. we're much more aligned on values, on focus on the work that needs to be done to give opportunities for everyone while we build a better future. i'm very much looking forward to working with president biden. reporter: the president spoke to president lopez obrador in mexico. president biden wanted to get rid of what his administration called draconian immigration policies put in by president trump. if the call with prime minister johnson, a spokesman pressed the
president for a new u.s.-uk trade deal. don't leave out china, a problem for the trump administration. we'll see how that turns out for the biden administration. 15 different aircraft from china entered taiwan airspace over the last few days. the u.s. has get to respond. we'll see how the u.s. responds towards china. back to you. jedediah: thanks, david so much for that update. i think president biden is quick to discover. he knows this from being vice president before the business of international business gets a little harder once you're sitting in the oval office. it is easier to talk about the things on the campaign trail, it is more challenging to hold conversations, bring out compromise, to try to improve deals, foreign alliances. we'll see where that lands with respect to the uk and canada. talk about mexico for a moment here. mexico's president has revealed biden said, he is pledging four billion dollars to develop
development in honduras, el salvador and guatemala. that is so much money considering our country is broke. he feels improving conditions in the countries, helping improve conditions in the countries may help to lessen the number of migrants seeking to come across the border through mexico into the united states. whether or not that will work, whether or not four billion dollars would be anywhere near enough money to actually disincentivize people from coming into america and everything this country offers people once they arrive, i don't know, i have my doubts and whether or not we should be spending four billion dollars when we're broke on this initiative is h will be up for great debate. that is where he will reverse from trump immigration policies. pete: severe mismanagement of those central american countries. i did a quick check of usaid how much we have given in the past.
honduras 85 million, guatemala 75 million in 2020. if we make everything good there with enough government spending they will stop coming to the united states but you're not actually fixing the government hal infrastructure of those companies, of those countries that would make that change. it's foolish. it's, utopian left-wing view if you throw more money at the problem it will fix it. instead all the serious things being done to protect our citizens were going away. we're ending deportations. releasing migrants. remain in mexico policy is out the window. stopping building of the wall. as you indicated jed, the world still ticks. china and lack of seriousness they have there. that could ramp up get a lot more serious a lot more quickly as well. will: you talk about putting policies into place.
others taking advantage migrants looking to come into the united states. in america, 60% said the government, should do more to stop the caravans at the border. you talk about the utopia vision, if we unvest in central america maybe they won't head north. i'm reading a policy analyst at the migration institute, this will go to education, in part, to education and jobs for youth in america. this is while education and jobs are suffering here in the united states. house minority leader kevin mccarthy, wow this is very different than the trump administration quote, america first policy. listen. >> just look at the first week of this administration. it's russia, china, our adversaries who are benefiting, not the american people. you're right that it is america last but now he put china first. remember this is the same group called you, me, your viewers
deplorables. now they think we have to be deprogrammed. the idea that he cut union jobs with keystone pipeline and hurt our greatest alley within canada. he has gone even further. the paris accord only benefits china. he goes forward with the movement of not making new american jobs. remember what he said just less than a week ago about unity? none of those actions have taken place. will: i think there are many people have been confused about what america first has meant to 74 million people. it means this, it is not a kind of a nationalistic fascist idea. it is obviously not white supremacy. what it is you a believe you put america's interest ahead of other countries. it is 1776, it is not 1619, it is not howard zinn. not president obama had to apologize for america's past.
it needs its needs and its peoples needs placed first over those across this world. pete: contrast with a left that has gone completely globalist in their view. illegality conflated with legality. doesn't matter how you got here, health care for all, sanctuary policies. you need a clarifying lines of america first. it has got so confusing. you mentioned confusing. let's stick with that. socialist bernie sanders has a message with joe biden if they don't go far enough left, if they are not successful enough 2022 might be bad news. here is what bernie sanders said to a mcclatchy reporter. given all we face now is not time to think small, but big, very big. with joe biden and democrats controlling the house and senate the first time since 2010 we will be judged what we deliver for the american people in time of need. people want actions not excuses.
let me be very clear, i have zero doubt unless we significantly improve the lives of american people this year, democrats will get wiped out in the 2022 midterms. they talk about unity yet we've seen executive actions on the far left. there is a very thin margin in the senate 50-50 with kamala harris breaking the tie. they want to go big and bold but they have barely enough votes. by the way they try to impeach the president who is no longer in office. what are the chances of delivering big in ways that help the lives of the american people? jedediah: i'm trying to figure out where the vast majority of democratic voters stand because there are those democratic voters that voted for joe biden with the expectation i think that he would govern as a moderate. that he was a safe choice. he had been in the white house, very close to the white house before. you know what? we knew what we were going to get. nothing major would happen here. he would restore some sense of diplomatic relations they felt and everything was going back to
normal. you have also the bernie voters, those elizabeth warren voters who voted for joe biden with the expectation he would be pushed around by the aocs, by the bernie sanders, by the elizabeth warren, that he was malleable and deliver on the hard left policies. i don't know what happens here, first off. looks like joe biden based on his executive orders is leaning pretty far left. i think it depends on what the vast majority of voters wanted. who is in the majority? the bernie wing or wing who want ad moderate? will they be satisfied what joe biden is doing after the first couple years in office. i don't know. i'm not sure yet. will: i think bernie sanders is misreading the election of 2020. he sees they have power and they need to implement a progressive agenda that delivers to the american people. if you looked what happened in 2020, there was resounding rejection of identity politics, defunding police across the country.
they think this is endorsement of their ideas. now they have the power to implement their ideas. he thinks if they don't, they will be swept out of office in 2022. i think if they do they will be swept out of office in 2022. pete: there is a difference between getting your agenda passed and improving the lives of american people. that is what he said in the statement. that is where the massive disconnect is. we have headlines, a police officer fearing for his safety plow through a crowd after they surrounded his cruiser. ii want to warn you, the video may be hard to watch. >> oh, my god! oh, my god! pete: what are you going to do. seconds before the crowd was seen shouting at officer and pounding on his windows. police say the officer was responding to a street race blocking an intersection. one person was hurt. an investigation is underway.
amazon fighting against mail-in voting in upcoming election for unionization. the tech giant asked the national labor relations board to require thousands of alabama warehouse workers to cast their vote in person. now it has to be done in person. amazon said to insure the election is valid and fair! even pointing to the past presidential election that it can be done safely. workers will vote on whether to form a union. the election is set for february 8th. so important, got to be fair, we've got to do it in person during a global pandemic. wow, how things change in just a short period of time. overnight ufc superstar connor mcgregor knocked out by dustin poria, redeeming a 2014 lost. winning a technical knockout. thousands were stunned by the victory in the abu dhabi arena.
mcgregor came out of retirement. after the upset win, they may bo head-to-head in the final rubber match in the future. those are the headlines. i don't know if you come out of retirement you want to finish the fight. will: his legacy one of the greatest of all time. i want to see him go out in bunch of losses. that is one. we'll see what happens in the rubber match, jedi quo. jedediah: sounds good to me. more violence erupt the overnight in portland but president biden has yet to address it. our next guest has been on the ground in portland covering the chaos and he joins us next. ♪ keeping your oysters business growing has you swamped. you need to hire. i need indeed indeed you do. the moment you sponsor a job on indeed

♪. >> federal protective service has been declared an unlawful assembly. anyone who is deemed a threat trespassing on federal property is subject to arrest. jedediah: we are back with a fox news alert. federal law enforcement declaring an unlawful assembly in portland after demonstrates stormed a local i.c.e. facility. townhall.com senior writer julio roses was there on inauguration day covering the arrest. thanks for being with us. we know you have covered extensive violence happening in portland right now. first and foremost, why are they rioting? >> they just hate the united states. so therefore it doesn't mat per a democrat is in office. they hate joe biden. they made that abundantly clear on inauguration day after they attacked the democratic headquarters. this really shows that critics last summer blamed federal law enforcement on the riots at the federal courthouse saying that it was their fault for that why
unrest is happening but this shows that portland just likes to riot against the government. it happened before the federal courthouse and obviously now it is happening afterwards. we're going to see this continue as long as there is a federal government presence. even if that were to go away they would go after the local law enforcement. jedediah: the white house press secretary-general saki was asked if she had spoken to joe biden about the riots in seattle and portland. she was asked this on friday. listen to her response. >> does the president have any comments on the violence in oregon and washington state? >> i haven't spoken specifically about those events, that our national security team and homeland security advisor is closely monitoring of course. jedediah: julio, my response would have been to her, why not? why haven't you spoken to him? are you surprised by the comment she gave and what should president do here? >> i'm not surprised at all. you have to remember when the
riots were wide sped across the country last year it took a long time for president joe biden and the democratic party to come out forcefully to condemn the violence that was going on. unfortunately that kind of non-answer, we're monitoring it, doesn't surprise me at all. he have really has to come out and just as he did with the capitol riot which i also covered saying that was bad. he needs to come out and say that the continued unrest that is affecting the hoe call population in portland and elsewhere is also bad. tough remember, this is happening, that i.c.e. facility is happening in a neighborhood. jedediah: do you hear from residents in these neighborhoods? what are they saying? seems would be a terrifying time to live in these praises? >> like i said that i.c.e. facility across the street on a couple of apartment complexes when i was there on inauguration night they were upset, not necessarily at law enforcement
but upset at antifa groups. people were coming out of the balcony, asking the antifa group to go home. they were upset. in fact one man was cheering on the portland police bureau when they came out to respond. he was cheering them on to arrest everybody, this is happening at heaven okay at night. this really -- 11:00 at night. this really disturbed them. jedediah: is unsustainable. this is despicable what is going on. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. jedediah: still ahead while new jersey student athletes are getting a chance to play again fans are not allowed to watch. a petition is growing to let fans back in the stands. one high school athlete that signed the petition joins us next. ♪ daddy?

freedom still works. that americans move with their feet. in south dakota they have no income tax, kristi noem is so great. she kept her economy open. even with mask mandates, people get information and make choices for them. we were in south dakota a couple weeks ago. our kids were amazed they could go to a restaurant without wearing a face mask. if you have that environment that is place people want to go to. if you look at new york and california people are fleeing those areas going to places like south dakota, texas and florida. that is where people can live their lives freely from the overpowerful and overbearing government. >> i have to say pete, will, jed, good morning, she is also a tough cookie. she got a lot of criticism when there was an outbreak i believe in a plant somewhere, a meat plant. pete: yeah. >> they called her a science denier. they tried to accuse her of murder, things that weren't hurled at governor cuomo who is
having much more problems but she stood strong. i know what is right for my state. i trust my people. lo and behold look at these numbers. i want to add one other thing. i think one of the silver linings of covid that a lot of parents have been doing a lot of soul-searching about what they want for their families and you know, people want more time outdoors. i know sean took a trip to yellowstone with our boys back in may and june. she has one of the most beautiful states for outdoor ventures and she's really capitalized on that. she has had huge amount of tourism in her state. she is using all the taxes that she is bringing in to expand you know, make those resources more available. >> she said put down the xbox and pick up the tackle box. as families, to go to more open spaces, let the kids run free instead of cities. there is movement in america where people want to live. south dakota has a lot of room
and an awesome governor. i think that is why you're seeing the unemployment rate. >> they social distance for living lifestyle, how we do things here in rural wisconsin. jedediah: i want to ask you both about a particular bill that house democrats are proposing. it is called the american family act. let's look at some aspects of that bill. it offers 300-dollar monthly checks, 3600 a year for families with a child under the age of 6 years old. 250-dollar monthly checks, $3,000 a year for families with kids between six and 17. those ages, is this a good idea, bad idea, why? >> you trying to start fights here? >> we have a little bit after disagreement on this one. will: y'all would get a pretty good check. >> true. we have nine kids. so, could be pretty good. go ahead, rachel. >> i say we're a society that wants to you know, support families. we say we want to support families. we say that you know, we care about that, we value it.

immigration. biden will open this up and illegal immigration is bringing people in to compete with the poorest americans, driving their wages down, instead of allowing competition to drive the wages up. this is better resources for us to help poor people with kids than just giving checks. we have a better economy and better wages and better opportunity moving forward. we disagree on this. will: child tax credit seems one thing. every time we turn around there is another recurring check being proposed from the democratic party. i couldn't keep up. i did it this summer. went to yellowstone, stunning. i have to ask where did you go to south dakota, are not the black hills a hidden dem in this country? >> they're axe shootly amazing. we weren't to north dakota. not as beautiful as south dakota. i've been south couple times. it is absolutely gorgeous. no wonder people are flocking to the state. this is my first time, will, going to yellowstone. it was amazing. i'm almost 50 years old, first time there you have got to go. >> a lot of families are

refuse a job and still collect on insurance even double down on his desire for a 15-dollar for federal minimum wage. will this help get americans back to work? let's bring in pennsylvania gop representative mike jones, owner of loxley's restaurant in lancaster, pennsylvania, matt rose. thank you boeing for being here. matt, start with you. as a business owner if you're told from washington, d.c., 15-dollar minimum wage is required, all the benefits are going up, people can file unemployment for any reason they deem necessary, what does that do to your ability to stay open to provide good jobs to people? >> it clearly makes it a lot more difficult. national minimum wage that's across the board is illogical to me. you have, you know, $15, for example, in pa, the median household income is $61,000. if you have a couple and they're
both working 40 hours, no overtime, they're making 62,000 at that number. so you can see that doesn't make a whole lot ever sense. i don't think it is necessary either. we currently, we don't have one person making minimum wage in our business. will: pete: market is driving who you pay, at what level. ultimately you have margins to meet. when someone from d.c. tells you all needs to change you have to make changes in prices and elsewhere. representative, what are you hearing from business owners across your district? when you see the policies, heavy-handed, top down, government handouts effectively, what does that do to the incentive for work and employers to provide more jobs? >> our businesses here have been crushed by the governor's over, you know, abuse of power quite frankly, with the, with the business shutdowns and so forth because of covid which were over the top here. this, we just keep piling on these small and mid-sized
businesses and they can't take anymore. the other thing too is, you know this, it makes no allowance for the difference in geographies. even within pennsylvania much less the nation, $15 in philadelphia you will not feel that very much, but get some poor, rural areas of pennsylvania, it makes no sense at all. you have to adjust to the cost of living. they're playing politics at the expense of business owners and good economic rationale here. pete: matt, it used to be when a employee was laid off they can collect unemployment. but now because of covid they can as well. are you concerned they make more on unemployment than come back to work, how does that affect the workforce? >> sure. last summer that very thing happened. when there was a 600-dollar federal stipend, same issue as national minimum wage. why is it the same number across the country.
each area should be adjusted for the standard of living in that area. pete: amazing part about this, gentlemen, the one thing business owners really want is the one thing washington doesn't want to give, to allow them to reopen and do what they do so well, responsibly with their employees and their customers. that is what they don't talk about. all the government tinkering they do. representative mike jones and matt derose, thank you for joining us. >> thanks very much. pete: got it. one buffalo bills fan celebrating a victory. mean the man who beat cancer and marked the occasion the only way bills fans do.

we had julio roses senior writer at townhall.com who covered the riots from the beginning, on the program earlier. he explained what is going on? >> they jumps hate the united states. therefore it doesn't matter if a democrat is in office. they hate joe biden. they made that abundantly clear on inauguration day after they attacked the democratic headquarters. this really shows that critics last summer blamed federal law enforcement on the riots at the federal courthouse saying that it was their fault for that, why the unrest was happening. but this shows that portland just likes to riot against the government. it happened before the federal courthouse and obviously now it is happening afterwards. we'll see this continue as long as there is a federal government presence. even if that were to go away, they would go after the local law enforcement. will: it is happening going on what is it, seven, eight months this has been taking place. seattle's interim police chief has had enough apparently.
vows a crackdown after rioters got away with no charges following violence on inauguration day. this is what you're dealing with in seattle. first. according to seattle's police department, this is interim chief adrian diaz. doesn't matter who is in the presidential office. it is really a matter understanding people are just out there for destruction. that is what they're about. we don't have any form of accountability for people, am of them are coming from outside of the city, they will continue to do that destruction and we can't have that. so what is it about? you heard julio talk about it, destruction, chaos, nihilism, anarchy. for many the process, the destruction also, is a very malleable definition. hard to pin down. i want you to listen to, i read for you with one of those protesters marched on wednesday night, sheena, had to say about the destruction. direct action quote, is beyond the picket sign in the street. it is taking that a step further. it willing to be confrontational if needed.
sometimes you have to be willing to be uncomfortable, make others uncomfortable. that is where growth happens. i don't think you can be violent against a window. if you say everybody who does something that is perceived to be bad makes me uncomfortable is a terrorist people need to take stock of why they think that. so jedediah, it is not violence to crack out a window but this is from the same side of the aisle often says words are violent. jedediah: yeah. i think that is an important point. that property destruction is being minimized like that. this idea that if you're not inflicting violence on someone, another person, it doesn't cause any harm. these are store fronts. these are businesses, these are people's apartments. these are their homes. these are communities where they send their kids to school. they go grocery shopping. they want to feel safe. the idea that property destruction isn't terrifying when it is happening next door to you or across the street from you is absurd. that is very important to acknowledge, to repeat over and
over again it doesn't matter who is in white house. they don't care. the talking point for a long time this was because you know, president trump was in the white house. it was rejection of president trump. it was about republicans. it was about -- no, it wasn't. it was about the country. it was about our system. it was about our justice system. it was about law enforcement, underfinishings what we stand for. in large part a rejection of that. now president biden, look what is happening. that is very important distinction to be made. these people aim to destroy regardless of what political party is sitting there. they don't care. pete: next time i disagree with someone i punch them in the mouth. it is for their personal growth. this ultimately benefits you. that is the perspective, any violence is justified. you point out out, republicans or democrats, portland, seattle, they are rioting against the government. they have insurrection every night, every night extremists on
the seat are pushing it. will, we talked about the break, ongoing conversation about january 6th. no one is justifying, but at the same time we're seeing new bread crumbs of new phrases like domestic violent extremism. we haven't covered it much on this program and we will, there is a threat assessment done bit dni, dhs, fbi, could be used as foundation to go after domestic violent extremist. not the antifa type we're seeing every single night, we're talking about maybe supporters of president, america first, stop the steal, they could be the focus of that, including their involvement of january 6th, regardless of it. it's a scary moment. will: look democratic congressman hakim jeffries, do away with bail. put them in jail, throw away the key. assistant former fbi directors are high-fiving idea, doing away with america's constitutional norms by the power of a definition. we move on.
president biden essentially discrediting the covid-19 vaccine. he tell as group of mayors, masks, not vaccinations are the single best defense, one day saying there is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic. here is joe biden talking about masks versus vaccinations. >> we're expanding testing which will help your schools and businesses reopen safely and protect the most vulnerable among us. we formalized the health equity task force to insure equity is at the core of everything we do both in urban and rural communities alike. at the same time we need to work together to slow the spread of covid. in the next few months masks, not vaccinations are the single best defense that we have against covid-19. jedediah: so i'm assuming that we're going to hear, you know, people in the medical community come out, media analysts come out and talk about how
ridiculous that is? is he saying that the little cloth masks that you can buy in the store we're all being told, these little cloth masks, if you sneeze, stuff comes out of the sides more effective than a vaccine? is another odd, this looks like the type of speech that politicians give that make people really loathe politicians. plus the fact it is completely inaccurate. back-to-back that he said a few days earlier, there is nothing we can do to the change the trajectory of the pandemic. let's remind people what he said, we'll take a look at that. >> if we fail to act there will act wave of evictions, foreclosures in the coming months as the pandemic rages on. there is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months. the bottom line is this, we're in a national emergency. we need to act like we're in a national emergency. we got to do it together. i don't believe democrats or republicans are going hungry and losing jobs. i believe americans are going
hungry and losing their jobs. we need the tools to fix it. have the tools to get this virus under control and our economy back on track. we have the tools to help people. so let's use the tools. jedediah: yeah. this is more political speak as i said yesterday. this word salad that politicians give ultimately say nothing except the fact he is saying, one thing that does stand out oh, there is nothing we can do to change the trajectory. he was voted in large part because people thought he was going to change the trajectory. they felt that oh, you know, everyone is saying donald trump is not handling this properly or not handling that properly or i like the way donald trump is handling covid, i will vote for joe biden. he will do something differently. essentially coming out there is nothing else can be done, we need to let this play out? that is not -- feet pete said for months and months, directly, send us to the white house we're johnny-on-the-spot right now. we show up not much we can do
about it. our big new plan is, donald trump's vaccine and masks. will: maybe we can tie this segment together with this, the acceptable double standard from everyone out there. joe biden can say i have a plan. when he gets into office i don't have a plan. talk about the approach what happened on january 6th, what is happening seattle, how you apply it, what you want to do it coming from our government leaders. the double standard you got wrong. i want to correct you on something. you're not allowed to punch somebody in the face, and that is gross. they're allowed to punch you in the mouth and you respond with words that is violence pet pete ultimately because of my political perspective they would not be growing. will: not punch them, respond with mean words that would be violence. one correction, disagreeable words, disagreeable words, that is violence. breaking windows, punching you is gross. pete: turning to the headline. the fbi is investigating a

the law but a good honorable prosecutor creates the law. president biden voted for the death penalty act of 1994. that is the law of the land in the united states a small group of progress serves prosecutors shouldn't be able to change the law by writing a letter to the president. we're a country of laws created by the people. the death penalty is reserved for the worst crimes. even in california, as early as 2016 the majority of californians voted for the death penalty. and the majority of americans support the death penalty. the worst crimes do deserve the worst punishment under the law. timothy mcveigh killed 168 people, 19 of those were children. 19 children who were in a day-care on the bottom floor of the federal building. timothy mcveigh said he had no sympathy for killing the children. even president clinton said that justice in that case needed to be swift and severe.
dylan ruth walked into a church and assassinated nine african-american churchgoers. he was a known and admitted white supremacist. even president biden, who was the vice president at the time said dylan was a coward and justice needed to be served. the family members of the victims and the loved ones that are left behind, they deserve justice. they deserve closure. progressive prosecutors say that the death penalty -- yes, sorry. jedediah: no, i think it is really important the points that you made. i want to play devil's advocate, get your opinion. what do you say to those that feel it is not the job of the state to take a life? or talk about how some people who die received the death penalty were actually innocent or some people on death row are exonerated, to them that is justification for abolishing it? what is your reaction to comments like that? >> well, first off, like i said
we're a country of laws. my job is to follow the law. if the laws do change i will respect that, but right now that is the law of the land in the united states and the law of the land in california. i can tell you when they say that the death penalty is final or irreversible, killing 19 children is final. killing nine church guyers is final. the torch murder of gabriel fernandez. that was final. he was tortured to death. he had 11 fractured ribs. he was starved to death. he had bbs embedded in his skin. his penis was cut. he was force fed cat litter, catastrophes sees. he was force fed his vomit had to sleep in a box for eight months that was final. the death penalty, it is reserved for the worst ever the worst crimes. i support the law. jedediah: john hatami, thank you for joining us today. this is obviously a super

they will add this. you will have to track everywhere. i don't want to sound like a conspiracy theorist, government knows where you are, how many miles you drove. i don't want them next to me in my car all day or my truck all day. will: right. >> there is nothing thing they're governing at us, instead of governing for us. will: two points. adding a miles per travel tax will not come in lieu of but in addition. doing away with one putting other in place. the privacy point needs to be underscored. if the government knows where you're going at all times, some say already do with our phones, adding vehicle mile tax, the government is keeping up wherever you go. geno very good point on the privacy issues. thanks for being with us this morning. >> thanks for having me again. i appreciate it. will: as a new caravan is set to head to the u.s., exclusive memos reveal chaos in i.c.e. facilities if they are forced to stop deportations. we'll speak to retired acting i.c.e. director next.

future. release them all immediately. will: former border patrol chief ron vitello served as acting i.c.e. director under president trump. ron, what do you make of this hearing from the administration? >> there is no justification for this. what we're seeing in this administration, we're going soft on immigration enforcement and we're going soft at the border. think about the idea if you came here before november 2020, you're in the country illegally, and maybe you committed crimes, maybe you didn't, you're working illegally, et cetera, but when immigration officers, i.c.e. agents or border patrol agents find you in the country this memo says we're not going to take action against you. we're not going to put you in deportation proceedings, we're not going to arrest you, even worse, you have to contemplate that situation before you can stop and ask questions. so think about this, you know, border patrol checkpoint or somewhere in the interior of the country, basically shutting down
immigration enforcement across the country for 100 days. if this is the baseline, if this is where the administration is starting to pull back on immigration enforcement, i think we're in a bad pace as it relates to public safety, as it relates to trying to control the border and what we're trying to do for homeland security. jedediah: so, ron, let's talk about these caravans for a moment because these caravans are coming here because they believe they will be let in for whatever reason, they feel that joe biden is going to issue an order to open things up and let them in. biden team coming out saying they will not be allowed in. what happens then? >> why do we have caravans? why did we have them before, why did we have them now? this candidate biden, now the president put a signal out that says we're going to stop border wall construction. we're going to end the accords with mexico to repatriate people who are seeking asylum in the united states and have their hearings in mexico. we're going to discontinue the accords we have with the
northern triangle as it relates to asylum. there is a signal going out to the rest of the world. right now only a problem in this hemisphere. but it could expand. basically what we're saying is, when you come to the border with a child, if you come and seek asylum in the united states we're going to let you in, we're going to process you for asylum. we'll have you go wherever you want to be in the united states. so the gains that we made in the last three years, the assistance we got from mexico and the northern triangle will now be dissolved. we'll go back to where we were in 2014 under the obama-biden administration. under2018 when people came to the border with their children, families. now weeing going back to the same scenario. we now how this ends, large numbers of people coming to the border because they will, they're going to come into the country. they will be processed by border patrol and customs border protection officers, they will be released into the country. pete: we know how it ends because we've seen it before,
ron, catch-and-release. you mentioned signaling. here are the policies the end state of that signaling for joe biden as you right now. as you mentioned 100 day pause on deportation. no one is being deported. eight year path formed citizenship for 11 million illegals. halting construction of border wall. stop remain in mexico policy. seems every single tool at disposal of border patrol and i.c.e. is being removed. is that effectively an open border policy? >> it is. because you're incentivizing people to send their children or to come with their families to the border because they know now under this where we're signaling, the incentive is, if you come here we're not going to try to detain you. we're not trying to deport you, not enforce the law at the border. in the interior it effectively shuts down anything i.c.e. can do at the border. the memo we're talking about says if they're contemplating making an arrest from somebody been here doesn't have a
criminal conviction they have to get the director's signature or director's approval to take enforcement action. so you're telling people that would be coming to the united states that effectively we're not going to enforce the law for 100 days. we're going to change policies to reflect, you know, this administration's going soft on the border. will: we'll do nothing for 100 days. later, we'll get to the bigger measures that will reward you migrating north. ron, thank you so much for your time this morning. >> good to be with you. will: you bet. jedediah. jedediah: we'll turn to headlines for you now. a las vegas man is accused of taking advantage of covid relief money meant for small business. federal prosecutors say he purchased a brand new bentley convertible as well as a tesla after getting two million dollars in relief. he allegedly used the ppp loan money to buy two condos, that's right, two, on the las vegas strip. a judge denied him bail at a hearing last week.

[laughter] jedediah: there you go. all right. we're going to begin this hour with this news, president biden making his first round of calls
to world leaders since taking office. the president facing mounting pressure to reverse trump immigration policies and to form a new trade deal with the u.k. david spunt is live in washington with more on their demands for the new administration. david? >> reporter: hi, good morning to you. multiple foreign policy issues on the new president's plate, some a little bit more hostile the, russia and china, others friendlier, great britain and canada, as pete just mentioned. pride ifen spoke with canadian prime minister justin true bow on -- justin trudeau on friday. the call though to prime minister trudeau comes as the canadian leader expressed disappointment with the9 new order to halt destruction on the keystone xl pipeline which begins in can and runs through the united states. listen. >> it's not always going to be perfect alignment with the united states. we are much more aligned on values, on focus, on work that the needs to be done to give
opportunities for everyone while we build a better future. i'm very much looking forward to working with president biden. >> reporter: the president also spoke to president lopez obrador in mexico. president biden expressed his desire to get rid of what his administration calling draconian immigration policies put in place by former president trump. in his call with british prime minister boris johnson, a spokesman says johnson pressed biden for a new u.k./u.s. trade deal. as far as some of the difficult issues, 15 aircraft from china made their way into taiwan air space, also the state department releasing a statement condemning russian officials who were punishing journalists and protesters who were protesting, excuse me, the arrest of russian opposition leader alexei navalny in moscow. back to you. pete: thank you very much. foreign policy front and center, no doubt. with china, being tested on
taiwan, you've got the relationship with the u.k., they want a direct trade deal, and justin trudeau pretty kicked off about the killing -- ticked off on about the killing of the keystone pipeline. as we promised, justin trudeau looked a lot like will cain in a former life. see that in it's pretty close. now, i've seen in -- we've been friends for a long time. on top looks just like justin trudeau, cascading down over his ears beautifully. and is with that coifed beard, it's pretty close, will. will: it's true, but you could find one with some long hair that i can't believe people just let me go on tv looking like justin trudeau. [laughter] jedediah: i liked it. i liked it. i remember those days. i liked it. you know, you guys have seen my husband, i'm a fan of the beard and the crazy hair. what can i say? will: how long we've all known
each other. speaking of talking to foreign leaders, one of the leaders joe biden has talked to is the president of mexico, and he pledged $4 billion to help development in central american countries like honduras, el salvador and guatemala. why? thinks if you can address issues in central america, you can reduce the likelihood of big migration caravans coming to the united states. which, by the way, 60 president president -- 60% of americans would like to see the government do more to stop at the border. the idea is if we go into central america and informs in education and -- invest in education and jobs, maybe that can stop immigration north. pete: yeah. except barack obama tried, that increasing federal aid, didn't work. according to usaid, each of these countries got around $100 million previously, up to $4 billion, flush with cash. part of the reason these countries are so under stress is because of gang violence, corruption, terrible governance there.
i mean, threats of violence against them. makes me think a lot about places like iraq and afghanistan where i've been where we've pumped billions and trillions in to try to get to root causes and systemic issues. ultimately, if you don't have a government structure, you don't have citizenry prepared to deal with the corruption there, it's money wasted, money that we need right now for american citizens. instead the, we're spending down there. and what donald trump understood was at some point carrots don't work, and you need to say the border is not open. you can't just come in. if you try to get in, you're going to wait in mexico. we're going to build a wall, you have to come in through the front door. all of those policies have been washed aside, jed. we've got a whole -- the we're going back to the obama era of just throw money at it and hope they don't come. jedediah: yeah. and that's a fatal flaw of liberalism often. we're going to throw money at it, whatever it may be, even in the united states, throw money at education, anything, that's
the answer. just because you throw money to something, particularly these governments that are completely destabilized in some cases, people don't want to live under those circumstances. they're still going to say there will be a better opportunity and better life for me in the united states, i'm still incentivized to try to take myself and my family and go there. i don't think this amount of money is going to do anything in the way of discouraging people from coming to the united states or deterring caravans, i just don't see it. i think it's important to look at the larger issues of border security, of what a biden agenda on immigration would really look like and what the potential implications of his policies would be and how they differ from the trump administration. we spoke to a former border patrol chief, he weighed in on biden's policies, and he said they're bad for the united states. here's his take. >> what we're seeing in this administration is we're going to go soft on immigration enforcement, and we're going to go soft at the border. so think about the idea that if you came here before november
2020, you're in the country illegally and maybe you've committed crimes, maybe you didn't, you know, you're working illegally, etc. but when immigration officers, i.c.e. agents or border patrol agents find you in the country, this memo says we're not going to take action against you, we're not going to put you in deportation proceedings, we're not going to arrest you, basically shutting down immigration enforcement across the country for a hundred days. and if this is where the administration is starting to pull back on immigration enforcement, i think we're in a bad place. will: lightening up on immigration enforcement here while investing there is not what many have thought is the definition of america first. in other words, we have education and jobs issues here in the united states, and it's hard to stomach sending $4 billion down to central america to address those exact same issues while americans suffer here. pete: it's also a generation aal thing. you can't just throw $4 billion at it and say it's all fixed.
this is the kind of thing you'd have to invest in for decades. will: right. to me, it's a great illustration of president trump may not be in office, but the ideas of america first remain. simply prioritizing americans' needs. it's simply putting america first. pete: he tapped into a common sense approach and, shocker, washington thought exporting democracy and building economies elsewhere made more sense with our tax dollars, and that's why it resonated. we've got another topic this morning. in california gavin newsom is refusing, interestingly, he's ignoring public records requests and also continuing to keep a lot of covid-19 data hidden. doesn't want the public to know how they're making decisions, is it based on data and science or just who he decides to hut down? you remember angela martinson who pointed out the tent? she's joining a lawsuit against governor gavin newsom which is gaining steam. but before we get to that, we'll
remind you of the double standard she pointed out. >> i walked into my parking lot and, obviously, mayor garcetti has approved this. has approved this being set up. this being set up for a movie company. everything i own is being with taken away from me, and they set up a movie company right next to my outdoor patio. tell me that this is dangerous, but right next to me as a slap in my face, that's safe. this is safe? jedediah: yeah. and people remember her emotional response because it was what so many business owners are feeling. she's pointing out the ridiculous nature of here's my outdoor dining which i'm not allowed to do, and steps away is this film set which is essentially outdoor dining, and
they are allowed to operate. so she was saying so many business owners and so many people who aren't, what they were feeling at that moment, i think it's also outrageous that california is refusing to disclose information as to why they're making decisions they're making. are they, in fact, finding some of the decisions they are making aren't really doing anything? people are suffering exponentially with these decisions. they need to be transparent on those issues, and that is one of the reasons why governor gavin newsom's facing a recall. people have had enough with his do as i say and not as i do and more. kevin mccarthy weighed in on this recall effort against the governor. here's what he had to say. >> what's happening is we need to get to 1.5 million signatures to recall gavin new. >> by march 17th. we're at 1.2 million, and we're going to make it, why? because of the hi pockily
service to this government -- hypocrisy of this government. he tells us not to go to dinner, but he goes to dinner for a lobbyist and doesn't wear a mask. speaker pelosi tells people they can't get they are hair done, but she can. pete: we're going to continue to monitor this lawsuit because more and more restaurant owners are attaching themselves to it, suing governor newsom saying show me the data, show me anything as to why this double standard exists and you get a high profile restaurant owner like that adding on to it. will: in combination with the recall effort as well. now that we've had my comparison to justin trudeau, we'll be looking for pete's picture in zubaz pants and jedediah dancing at the culture club.

just the parking garage, but probably also the ideological vetting of your troops that a made you say enough is enough. >> well, good morning, pete. happy sunday. it was. our men and women, we sent about 200 of our guardsmen back to d.c. to make sure we had a peaceful transfer of power. they did their job. and it is a national disgrace that they were escorted out of the capitol into an unheated parking garage. when i got that news, i immediately called our adjutant general and said get our men and women back home. pete: are they back now, governor? >> they're coming back. the main group will come in early this week. i'll be there to greet them at the airport and just thank them. the montana national guard did an awesome job making sure we had a peaceful transfer of power back in washington. pete: you send troops to support a mission, you want the mission to be clear, you want them treated with respect and come home as soon as it's the over. it all makes sense to me.
i've got to ask i ask you, governor, about the keystone xl pipeline. you've been very critical of the administration's decision to halt construction of that. what is the impact of halting construction of the keystone xl pipeline? >> well, pete, it's massive. this project has been fully vetted. it's had broad bipartisan support here in montana. our entire federal delegation. my two predecessors in this office, both democrats, support the keystone xl pipeline. it would have created thousands of u.s. jobs, hundreds of jobs here in montana. but probably the most important thing, the keystone xl pipeline is a lifeline for rural montana. over $100 million in annual taxes that we were counting on to pay for teachers, to pay for law enforcement, to pay for infrastructure. we need this in rural montana. and it's also the most economical and environmentally
sensitive way to get crude oil to market. it's going to get there anyway, but now it's going to be on our roads and rails. pete: then the obvious question to all of those points are why are they stopping it? >> it seems to be just partisan behavior. this is ecoterrorists weighing in with the president. i want to just call on president biden, this decision falls unduly on hard working montanans and americans. please, reverse course and reverse this executive order. pete: yeah. when the democrats got in bed with radical environmentalists, they had to make deals like this to appease them e, and that's precisely what's happening, and workers get thrown under the bus. governor gianforte, thank you very much for your time this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you, pete. pete: you got it. tributes pouring in as the country mourns the loss of tv

manager a lot of people may not -- something a lot of people may not know. he was the same larry on and off the screen. when he would go meet all of his pals at his favorite diner and sandwich shop in l.a., and i went there with him and met them and sat down with them, he was the same guy to them, everybody that walked in the door. and i thought it spoke volumes that his friends are not hollywood types or celebrities, which they could have been because he's so famous. they were his friends from way back when in brooklyn. friendships that lasted years and years and years. and that meant a lot to me, that he could speak to ordinary people like me just like he could to presidents and marlon brando and elizabeth taylor and, of course, the biggies, kermit and mispiggy. jedediah: yeah. you mentioned that you were interviewed by him and you opened up to him about something deeply, deeply personal. what do you think it was about
his style that inspired people to open up, be themselves and talk about stuff with him that they may not talk about with other people? >> you know, he would sit about xx 3 feet from you, just as small as this little table right here. it wasn't really a big table like they show wide shots on tv to make it look really big. wasn't like that. he sat right there and looked right in your eyes. he was touch the bl, you could reach out and touch him. and he never looked away. he didn't prance and preen in front of the camera. it was not about him. he really wanted to hear what the other person said. in fact, he said i never learned anything when i was talking. and he may have directed that at me because our styles are very different. i get aggressive when i'm talking about a criminal case. ask he hated people to interrupt. so larry, in a nice way, i might add, would lecture me about interrupting. and i'd try, try to control myself. jedediah: oh, i love that.
you are set to pay tribute to larry king in a new special that's going to air tomorrow on fox nation. tell us about it. >> well, we are bringing in people that worked with him for years and years and years. one of my longtime friends was his researcher, and she knew just how to put together research for him, what he would want. she really got into the mind of larry king and helped him create the wonderful stories that he told. how he changed the landscaping of tv talk. you know, there have been a lot of pretenders, a lot of imposters. there's only one larry king, and there will only ever be one larry king. and the fact that he helped me launch my career meant the world to me. when i moved to new york, i knew nobody. i went to launch this program with johnnie cochran, cochran and grace, and larry basically plucked me out of security and helped me make a career.
i owe him bigtime. not a bad word will ever come from my lips about larry king. [laughter] jedediah: well, we love that you're here with us today and you've been able to share your experiences working with him. we're definitely going to check out that fox nation special that's going to air tomorrow. everyone check that out on larry king along with nancy's latest episodes, the crime stories. nancy grace, thank you as always. we love you being here. >> thank you, friend. jedediah: and in a fight the save mainstream, no one has balloted found harder -- battled harder than barstool founder dave dave portnoy. brian kilmeade spoke exclusively with portnoy, and he joins us next. >> man: so i'm not taking any chances when something happens to it. so when my windshield cracked... my friend recommended safelite autoglass. they came right to me, with expert service where i needed it.

small businesses have closed. it's not just restaurants. you look at the beauty business, the retail, the bars. as of october 1st, the unofficial numbers, 200,000 businesses have closed for good. new york, you could argue -- and a lot of people wrote me, and it's not just new york. i get it. chicago, all of california, we have just run many of these mayors and governors have decided to run and hide leaving the customers someplace else and leaving these businesses without staffs or the ability to open. so dave portnoy of barstool, this edgy company that started out of nowhere, is now taking over the world, said i'm outraged by this, i bent the curve, i'm going to take action. why everything's closed makes no sense, and next thing you know he's got this fund that is helping small businesses. not just one month, but every month for the next year. so people are telling their the personal story thes, and then those personal stories would go
through their vetting system, and dave would pop in on facetime and say, hey, by the way, you're now -- i heard about your salon, your restaurant, i'm going to help you out for the next year. pete: and, brian, you talked to el principled den today. here's a portion of what you guys talked about. ♪ ♪ >> dave portnoy, barstool founder. things are banging in new york city as usual. it's been a phenomenal success story, but this isn't about barstool, is it? >> yeah, this has nothing to do with barstool, the fund we're doing. just trying to help small business in general. if you walk around new york, you see a lot of businesses are in trouble or gone really. march was kind of the beginning of the lockdown, and we fast forward all the way to the end of december, and in new york city they closed indoor dining. so they had opened it up a little bit, and then right before the holidays they said
they're getting rid of it. i went on a rant because, logically speaking, if you walked around the city, there was already tons of stores out of business. this was a death blow. we got your story the, your video, and we want to help. >> oh, my god. you're an angel. you can't even -- you don't even know. i don't even, like, sleep at night. i don't. [laughter] >> you're the best. >> it just helps out so much. >> i donated 500,000 of my own money to start this fund, barstool fund, and i started challenging my friends and fans of barstool, donate to small business, and if you're a small business who needs help just to get through this thing, reach out, we'll help as many as we can. >> oh, my god! >> >> you're the exact type of businesses we're looking to help. what, 81 years in the family? >> you have no idea. it's not even just my family.
>> look over here. this is normally bustling. i mean, this is a weekday. if you looked to the the left, things are boarded up, but they're not fenced off, they're shut down. the only thing that's really selling here is plywood. >> yeah, it's sad. it is definitely sad to walk through the city and see it. >> one of every four small businesses in new york will are shut down or is shut down. same thing in chicago. 32,000 across the country, and not just restaurants. you've got the beauty industry shut down, you've got the gym industry basically shut down. and i'm not really sure why because in certain statements, they're open. states they're open. >> yeah, it's crazy. when you talk to them, a lot of times it's the flip of a coin. it's like, hey, i can go across the river, i can go ten minutes away, and they're fully operational. >> you do care, and you're taking action. you put 500,000. unbelievable. but then people started to join. small donations, big donations. tom brady jumps in.
elon musk jumps in. tell me some of the other big names. >> aaron aaron rodgers has been great. he put in $500,000 of his own money. dana white, he put in 100 grand. the krafts, unsolicited. >> i don't want to point out the name of the restaurant, but this is on the outside of the restaurant with a top on it, it's dressed like the indoors, it is indoors. across the street is a submarine -- [laughter] how is that the same as eating indoors? >> there is zero logic to what is going on. [laughter] somebody explain how if you build an indoor structure outside, it is now outside. it makes no sense. >> if these politicians were not getting paid until they open up, they'd open up. these business owners are knot
in control. >> that's why i'm so passionate about it. barstool's obviously grown, but i consider it a small business, and it's no overnight success. it took me two decades. ten years maybe before i turned a profit. if this thing hit at year ten the, you rip away, basically, my entire adult life's work, i have no say, i have no fight. the thing that i love about small business owners and you go into it, you want to control your own destiny. look at these structures. this cost everything -- >> this didn't work. this structure was try, this restaurant is closed. that doesn't work. >> and that's what they're saying. you are asking us, so many own ores would be like they had to build these things, do these things, i invested any money i have, my life savings. and there's a rule change five minutes later. >> 27 million donated already -- >> yep. >> millions given out -- >> yep. >> and you don't just say here's $500. what's your program? >> what we do is we tell the
small business send us a video and tell us what you need. we don't say, hey, you get this much. tell us how much money you need this month whether that's for payroll, taxes, rent, whatever. explain it. essentially, once you're in our program, you're in it until the pandemic's done and we can go back to normal. and the beauty of these conversations, the small business owners, 99% of them, they don't want the money. they are, like, we are proud people. we've built a successful business, we just need a gap. we need a bridge to when we can go back doing what we're doing. jedediah: yeah. you know, brian, i love that that you pointed out the absurdity of some of the outdoor dining structures. one of my favorite comments is there's zero logic in the all this, and i think that's absolutely true. >> they invest a lot of money in the plexiglas and they spread things out, they buy their food, and then they hear the rules have changed again. and now that there's a democratic president, we're hearing democratic governors say we have to open up, or we're
going to have no city to open up. we've been saying that for the last year. currently on this fund they're just about at 30 million, they've supported -- they have 202,000 people plus have donated and 174 businesses have been supported. so they're helping a lot, but still so many other people need help, and so many people watching right now and thinking to themselves i'm tired of wasting money on funds, on foundations that spend all their money on infrastructure or salaries. this has zero, in this goes to zero bureaucracy. there's no salaries. he's using his current employees to do this. so anyone who has $20, this is the time to do it. if you have $200, this is the time to do it. it's going right to the people who need it. will: we're going to have more of brian's interview with dave portnoy later in the show. brian kilmeade, big pants guy -- [laughter] not trying to lead him, he's doing a hit from home right now.

what's going on in portland, you hear about seattle. we watched a horrific amount of rioting go on last summer as well. the question on everyone pes mind is why -- everyone's mind is why hasn't joe biden said anything about it yet? will he and what should he say? >> i don't know what president biden's plans are in terms of speaking out. antifa and these other anarchist groups don't care who is in power. their god, their leader is disruption and chaos and dysfunction and if they can interrupt the normal lives of average people, that is their load stone, that's what they're working for. they're working for chaos. and they are professional agitators. whether or not they get paid, they are -- that's what they do for a living. they travel around and cause disruption and move on to the next. if portland and seattle insist on this absz lieutenant hand shall -- absolute, hands-off
benign approach in which misdemeanor rioters are still not tried and still some of them not formally charged, i think it is an invitation to more chaos ahead, jedediah. will: during the election, the general election at least, joe biden pivoted to this idea that he was a centrist, a moderate, he was going to be a unifier in fact. that's been the message since inauguration. the policies being implemented seem to be embracing a lot of those that make bernie sanders happy, that would make aoc happy. the new york post is asking what are we unifying with? is it the far left that's been unified. they say the far left unity will divide up. brings up the question, geraldo, does unity for joe biden mean more about manners? policies don't look like a unifying factor. >> that's a great question, will. i think joe biden wants to get along. but going back to your original premise, i do believe that he's
going to govern and is governing from the left, those executive orders going back to the paris climate accord and some of the other international deals that president trump pulled us out of, by embracing with his executive orders voluminous -- remember how criticized trump was when he used the executive order but i think that joe biden is declaring himself as a left of center rather than a centrist president. it will be interesting to see how many of these executive orders stick and how united this congress is because i think that when they start impeaching this impeachment trial of president trump, whatever unity they hope for will dissolve standly. this is a -- instantly, this is a sure recipe for ideological warfare, it's going to be absolutely dreadful and for absolutely no reason since president trump is already out
of office, why bring an impeachment trial, the goal of which is to throw him out of office, will. pete: we've got a little bit of time. we want to make sure we give you a proper amount of time to talk about larry king who we talked on the program yesterday passed at the age of 87, he's an icon of tv and radio. what do you remember about the way larry king went about conducting interviews and being a big member of our public debate? >> you know, major, it is impossible to overstate the influence larry king had on the serious news talk business. he is the godfather of us all. he was a mentor to me specifically. i remember when i got fired from abc news in 1985, and could not find a job, larry said to me, i'm taking a two week vacation, fill in for me. that was my first gig outside of the 15 years i had done at abc news. i will be forever grateful to larry and his terrific producer.
watching him, this role model, his ability to interview everybody from putin to sinatra to every great star you could think of, every candidate that ever ran, every president, every rock star, he was the kind of person who was everyman. he would sit there and just start chatting, asking questions that your mom might ask, nothing -- no gotcha kinds of questions, how do you feel about that larry would say or what does that mean or why do you do that, here he is with president trump in the early days. mike tyson. if you were in the public eye, larry wanted you and because he was so benign in terms of his questioning, because he wasn't a gotcha kind of personality, the galaxy of all of us together there, you know, it's a funny, funny crew. but larry created. he interviewed may a couple months -- me a couple months ago
when ambassador bolton's book, that whole controversy, whether he should be arrested for violating intelligence laws, larry by that time his show was on cable and on the internet, working for rt, the russian outfit but he said they don't mess with me. they just carry me, they're just another sponsor, another outlet for me. but larry was terrific. you know, the fact that he and i together amounted to 13 marriages -- [laughter] >> we bonded. he was a terrific guy. jedediah: he was terrific, geraldo. we were talking with nancy grace earlier. we were talking about just how he had an ease of making people feel comfortable in those interviews. .she guest hosted for him. he has touched so many lives. we'll see a lot of people coming forward, talking about how they wouldn't be where they are today without his influence. thank you for sharing your morning with us. as always, we appreciate it.
we're going to turn to some important headlines. a police officer fearing for his safety plows through a crowd as they surrounded his cruiser. we want to warn you, the video may be hard to watch. >> oh, my god! oh, my god! oh, my god! jedediah: seconds before, the crowd was seen shouting at the officer and pounding on his windows. police say the officer was responding to street racers blocking an intersection. one person was hurt and an investigation is underway. and there could soon be a new way to test for covid-19. researchers at university of california san diego are developing a strip for face masks that can detect covid-19. the color changing test strip and a small blister pack stick on the outside of the mask. once finished using the mask, the user can squeeze the contents of the blister pack onto the test strip to checks

i didn't realize how special it would be for me to discover all of these things that i found through ancestry. i discovered my great aunt ruth signed up as a nursing cadet for world war ii. you see this scanned-in, handwritten document. the most striking detail is her age. she was only 17. knowing that she saw this thing happening and was brave enough to get involved and do something— that was eye opening. bring your family history to life like never before. get started for free at ancestry.com re-entering data that employees could enter themselves? that's why i get up in the morning! i have a secret method for remembering all my hr passwords.

pelosi does not speak for the catholic church. this is not the language of unity and healing. she owes she voters an apology. the archbishop, salvatore cordileone, joins me now. thank you so much for being here. why does she make comments like this, categorizing entire groups of voters. democrats seem to do that often. here she's talking about pro-life voters. why? >> why, i can't answer for why. you would have to ask her why she made such a comment. the reason i made a response is summed up in the excerpts you cited in my statement. the first, this is not the language of unity. our president is calling for unity. that was discussed a few minutes ago on this show. we're waiting to see if he's really going to pursue that path. he is certainly speaking about that, he emphasized that in his inaugural address. he spoke about this uncivil war we have to end that pits red against blue and rural versus urban, conservative versus lib
liberal. we need to have tolerance and walk in the other person's shoes. we don't see this happening and this is an example, that judging voters for who they voted because of the issue of their -- that was their priority is not doing that. this isn't a one-off example. this is happening a lot in our society. the other point is how misleading this is to catholics. she and other catholic politicians and now even our president are giving the impression that it's acceptable to be a catholic and favor abortion. but that's not. catholics don't favor what's evil. and it's hard to imagine anything moreyville than dismember -- more evil than dismembering babies in their mother's womb. we have to admit how evil abortion is. we pastors hear a lot from women who have gone through the
experience. women of means have choice but others don't and this kind of removes the veil of the rhetoric of choice. the problem is that too many women don't have choice and that's their only alternative. pete: you're talking about the dignity of human life in the womb which is an issue of great passion and principle for the catholic church. why is it so many prominent democrat politicians, catholics, that they can have the disconnect, that they're happy to disregard their faith when it comes to abortion. >> it's a politicized issue. there's a long history in this country of catholics in the democratic party, when catholics were poor immigrant people, and democrats were championing the cause of the working class family, the farmer, factory worker, and they were giving catholics the support they needed to not only material support, but to assimilate into the country. so there's a long association
especially with the labor movement. but then all the political landscape all changed in the '60s and the '70s and the democratic party when in this direction and so many catholics had been so connected to the democrat party because how they were assisted by them so they moved that direction and made this false dichotomy between the policies they support and what they personally believe. pete: it's a great explanation. mr. archbishop, thank you so much for your time this morning. we really appreciate it. >> you're welcome. pete: thanks for having the courage to stand up. from the silver screen to saving lives, one north carolina movie theater teaming up to bring the covid vaccine to their community. the unlikely partners join us, next. ♪ i am everyday people. ♪ truck. it's my livelihood. ♪ rock music ♪ >> man: so i'm not taking any chances when something happens to it.
jedediah: people are rushing to the movie theater again in wilmington, north carolina. it isn't to see a film. instead of buying tickets they're picking up medical forms and getting covid-19 vaccinations in the theater lobby. here to share the success of this unlikely partnership, dale coleman and mike mel. melroivment ilove what -- melro. dale, i'll start with you. how did it come about that one of your theaters is now a location for a vaccine distribution? >> well, good morning. thank you for having me. i got a call i believe it was the first part of last week from our of general manager, steve sherwood, and laid out a request that new hanover regional had reached out and asked if there was a possibility that they could utilize our facility as a
vaccine site. and as steve and i talked through it, and it occurred to me more and more very quickly that movie theaters, our theater facility certainly but movie theaters in general are just a perfect setup to be a vaccine site with the large amounts of parking, spacious lobbies that can accommodate several vaccine stations, large corridors with auditoriums for seating to monitor the good folks in wilmington that have had their vaccine. it just made total sense to me so i got on the phone immediately with our owner and ceo, herman stone, and went through it with him and it took him about a minute to realize that this was something that we
certainly wanted to do. we wanted to donate our of facility and help in any way that we could and not only that, but we would like to roll it out to our other theaters as well. jedediah: you know, mike, if you look at that imagery that we just showed, it looks like a very efficient system. but tell us, is it efficient, is it working, and you how does it compare to the ability to vaccinate people in a hospital setting? >> thanks for the question. so it is efficient. and like many hospitals, we have set up a vaccination clinic in a part of the hospital that wasn't currently being used at this time and pretty quickly we were able to figure out patient flow and we started with employees and things along those lines and so we had a pretty efficient and safe way to administer these vaccines, but we knew as we wanted to really make the vaccines available for our community, we knew that we had to have a bigger space and so when we started looking around at what was available, we were
very fortunate to have connections with steve at the point here in wilmington and we basically scaled up the operation that we already had that was really successful, to really fit this setting. and it's really been a huge success. we're able to vaccinate a great number of people safely and efficiently with relatively low amounts of staffing and so it's really been -- it's been a great success. it's been a great partnership for the community. jedediah: yeah, it's fantastic to see. it's an idea that many would not have thought of but i'm hoping that this partnership sets an example for so many around the country who may look at their own spaces and say well, maybe we can help get everybody back on their feet a little bit quicker. thanks for being here, both of you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you very much for having me. jedediah: of course. the bar stool fund is saving main street and it's doing it one call at a time. brian kilmeade goes one on one with founder dave portnoy with
the first restaurant owner he helped. stay with us. shingles? dios mio. so much pain. maria had to do everything for me. she had these awful blisters on her back. i don't want shingles when i'm your age. actually, if you're 50 or older, you're at increased risk that's life, nothing you can do... uh, shingles can be prevented. shingles can be whaaaat? prevented. you can get vaccinated. where? at your pharmacy, your doctor's - hold on! don't want to go through that! 50 years or older? get vaccinated for shingles. now.
will be our scholarship. pete: it is the shot of the morning, oklahoma state basketball playing dee mitchell is awarded a scholarship in the middle of his shift at walmart. jedediah: he was a walk-on for osu while working 40 of hours a week. .will: they joined us earlier with what it was like, knowing his hard work paid off. >> seeing everybody there brought me through a bunch of emotions. once i saw my mom, i started crying. pete: mitchell said he'll continue to work at walmart and plans to graduate in december. brian, were you a walk-on? i know you played collegiate soccer. i can't remember. i was a walk-on with water polo. didn't you play collegiate soccer? >> i'm the epitome of an average player. turns out of, i was recruited there but the cheating factor was the coach at cw post, long
island university now, was actually -- he was actually running the camp i went to in fifth and sixth grade so he actually -- he had been revvingg me and staying the whole time. i played division two soccer. you could be a 25-year-old freshman or you could be an israeli fighter pilot and shaving, because i wasn't shaving until like 24. these guys were walking in, these were grown men. because the division two rules. so it was just a bizarre -- it was a bizarre four years. but i'm so glad i did it even though it is the so-called nondescript division and conference that all got canceled this year. my daughter plays division three soccer. they canceled the whole conference. why? because division one football played. how can we play field hockey and other sports when the major sports canceled and then they go back and played.
this brings a bigger conversation. nobody's playing sports. this is part of the unnecessary pain of the pandemic in my view. will: that's what you're here to talk about is the pain of covid-19. we hit on it, on sports. you talked to somebody doing something about it. >> bar stool founder, dave portnoy. we walked the streets and said let's do something different. instead of meeting some of the people you're helping on face time, why not meet them in person and let's see what happened as we round the corner and came onto a luncheonette with eight seats, all empty. ♪ >> you mentioned you got called out, you were complaining about what's happened in the city, the shutdown. we've bent the curve. who called you out? >> it was a guy, marco flimonus who i never heard of. he's like a billionaire. >> and he said do something. >> he said if you start a fund,
put 500 grand of your own money into it, i'll match it is what he said. >> i want to help. >> after this table i don't have any more money. >> you have no idea how much it takes to take on a restaurant. >> very excited to help. >> oh, my god, you're absolutely amazing. >> when you decided to take action, you started meeting these people. did they remind you of yourself, grinders, whatever it takes to be successful, get out of my way, i'm not looking for a pat on the back, just a chance. >> the small business owner, entrepreneur, said i would rather work 100 hours and know success is because of me as opposed to somebody else. ironically, because of the pandemic, it got ripped away from people. >> we're about to come on one of the business owners that was selected, that hit the criteria, the bar stool criteria to be funded. >> yes, johnnie's luncheonette. >> why? >> he had a moving story. >> we were in the middle of the pandemic, as you can see, there's no indoor dining. >> he was struggling.
he took a picture of the diner it was empty. the whole story just kind of resonated and i do remember the call, he was super appreciative. >> we need the help right now. we're going to need help for rent. >> nice to meet you. i haven't met you yet. nice to meet you. >> god bless you, man. >> glad we could help. >> what have you been going through? >> been struggling for quite some time now, since had they announced everything back in march. i closed for five months. i basically thought that was it. the cold weather settled in, indoor dining closed and then it just deepened the wounds. >> how did you find out about bar stool and what they're doing? >> my dad passed away in december, early december. and -- >> wow. >> yeah. so that was just like another punch in the face there and that really devastated me and, you know, i'm looking through instagram and on christmas eve
i'm at work and it was just dead and i'm like you know what, i'm here over 20 years. i started it out with my dad. taught me everything i know. and he just passed away last week. i took my phone out of, i didn't even see what i looked like because i didn't know i was going to be on national tv and i said dave, you know, this is it, this is the store rim there's nobody -- story, there's noble y around. i started crying, you know, my dad and a everything and i sent it out. so the next day was christmas day. >> john -- >> oh, my god. >> i said i got some good news for you. we saw the video. we're the exact type of guy we want to help so we're going to be there for you. >> oh, my god, you just made my day, man.
>> better christmas probably than most so i'm happy, i'm glad we can do it. >> i feel like i'm dreaming right now, man. i was three months behind on rent and when this all happened everything just happened so fast. >> this is who we're trying to help, it's like a small business. he's been here forever. >> what's your message to the american sneem. people?>> to every small businef out there, don't give up hope. >> you didn't. >> we're all suffering here. we're all together. and i'm fortunate enough to have bar stool come and take care of me and my business and it's not only me. my house is tied into this too. >> god bless you, man. thank you so much. you know it, you don't have to say it. >> i appreciate it. >> vaccines' on the way. that means customers and businesses will be standing up soon, we hope. >> i think we can take a seat here. >> when you see the reactions of the business owners and you see the stress just wash away and they break down, you can't
ignore that. doesn't matter who you are. you see what they're going through, the struggle, everything, and i think that's why things have gotten so big. when we started this fund, i never dreamed it would in three weeks be 27 million and i would be talking to aaron rodgers on the phone. i talked to sylvester stallone, kid rock and aaron rodgers in 15 minutes and they all called me. >> has any of this changed you? >> people just are nicer to me online. >> you're not used to people being nice. >> no, i'm used to people coming at me. >> and the days of you being arrested at the super bowl, are they over? >> no. i'm the same guy. you have to ask roger goodell that. >> if he would finally give in and admit that you're right. >> well, i offered roger -- i said if he'll donate 250,000 to this cause, i'll match it. crickets. he hasn't answered that yet. jedediah: brian, i think it's so important that you went to the luncheonette. i know that luncheonette in
manhattan, it's in the 20s. it's so important because it makes it real for everyone. people need to really see and feel what these business owners have been going through and that's the only way to do it. >> yeah, what they did on friday was they ordered from the luncheonette so we had lunch and i will confirm, they're great. diversity of products and food. it was great. but perfect example of where i was sitting, smithfield's on 25th, it's a sports bar with just -- they are pointing their televisions out to the road and you sit in this little lean-to and you watch television while eating with heaters on, knowing there's this beautiful restaurant inside with high ceilings and they already redid their ventilation system. but on 47th and sixth by our place, he could not keep his other place open. so that place closed. he says i'm barely able to stay
alive here and the thing that is missing from this, landlords. landlords take out loans from banks unless they're really rich. those banks are asking the landlords for money. when you give rent relief, it's nice, temporarily. i like the business owners. but what about the horrible people who buy buildings or store fronts or of strip malls? they have payments due. they're nice people. they're entrepreneurs. do we forget how business works? so we have to get back to work the way florida's doing it. it's not -- we're not saying we're pandemic-free but we've got to get back to work. will: that domino keeps going, mortgage payments, bank payments, on and on. where does the buck stop. really good stuff, brian. i can attest to someone who follows el presidente. he'll still the same guy. pete: great job. >> thanks, guys. appreciate the support. bye, jed. will: we told you earlier about
this, disney world is selling grilled cheese on donuts. they are offering the sweet and cheesy items, the grilled cheese is served on a sweet griddle bun. you can substitute a glazed donut. it made pete want to make the own version of the donut. he ordered the donuts from dunkin and a slice of cheese separately. pete: you'll have to let me know. fried, exclusively for will cain. donuts and american cheese. what do you think? will: uh huh. pete: one bite, everybody knows the rule. will: i barely taste the cheese. pete: you can taste a little bit of it. will: a lot of sugar taste. look at rick's face. [laughter]
pete: it's actually not bad. i can see the appeal. you do need more cheese. i did what i could with the cheese that i got and -- jedediah: is it good? is it really good, guys? will: this is where you go ahuh. pete: i can't smell or taste anything. i'm kidding. [laughter] jedediah: rick, i think they did it wrong. >> i'm a fan of every salty, sweet combination. i think this absolutely works. my issue is putting all five fingers on a sticky donut, what do you do with your hand afterwards. will: everyone knows what you do, you lick it. >> i don't know. there you go. [laughter] >> exactly. yeah, dry cleaners. all right, guys. let's talk a little weather out there. it's cold across parts of the northeast, everywhere in the northeast. it's also windy. we're going to continue in this bittery cold weekend.
this week things warm up a little bit. we'll be below average for much of the coming week. right now, feels like minus 112 in albany. the rest of the country, cold across the far northern tier. this is cold air that we haven't had that much of so far this winter. we've got it at least through wednesday and then we start to see things warm up, back up again. i think that's going to be our overall pattern. i want to show you the forecast radar, this is what things are going to look like over the next couple of days. we've got this storm that's across parts of the southwest, later on tonight, around midnight time, across parts of the central plains that begins to turn into a pretty significant storm. we've got rain across parts of oklahoma, throughout missouri, the northern part is snow, across nebraska, omaha, you may have plowable snow in the morning, snow across chicago by tomorrow afternoon, heavy rain across parts of the southeast. the next storm comes back across parts of the west, so we've got this really active pattern with us for a lot of the coming week. all right, guys, go clean your
suits. pete: i think will liked it. he joined the clean plate club in the middle of your weather. couldn't have been too bad. rick, we'll be seeing you. a new bill is looking to permanently expand the child tax credit for families while the irs could soon send monthly checks to anyone with kids. maria bartiromo is here to react, next. with oscar mayer deli fresh it's not just a sandwich, far from it. it's a reason to come together. it's a taste of something good. a taste we all could use right now. so let's make the most of it. and make every sandwich count. with oscar mayer deli fresh did you know you can go to libertymutual.com to customizes yourdwich count. car insurance so you only pay for what you need? really? i didn't-- aah! ok. i'm on vibrate. aaah! only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪

getting these checks per child every month. your thoughts? maria: yeah. i think you're going to get a lot of pushback certainly from republicans but, look, you just hit the nail on the head. the democrats are running things. so if they have full support on the democrat side, this will get through. at some point, obviously debt becomes a problem and the republicans he know that. the republicans are probably going to push back on it. this is a really big week coming up. not only will they vote on that as part of the additional cares package, they'll also vote, begin to start voting on president biden's nominees for his cabinet. monday, they will vote on janet yellen. she will likely get through r swimmingly, no problems there. you've got a fair amount of republicans still going to vote against that. and then they'll be sworn in on the senate on tuesday and then of course they're going to be voting on the impeachment trial because nancy pelosi will send over that one article on monday. that's what we're going to be talking about in about 10 minutes.
i've got an interview coming up with senator tom cotton to discuss how he will vote and what takes place this upcoming week. i'll talk with chad wolf, former acting head of the homeland security department, that's going to be important because on day one president biden reversed president trump's immigration policies so we'll talk about that as well. then there's cancel culture, there are new russia documents that were declassified, lee smith and john solomon will get into that glenn greenwald is going to talk about this new war on terror that sees domestic war on terror, he's going to explain that to us as well. we've got breaking news coming up from john solomon and senator tom cotton, don't miss it, that's in about ten minutes' time, we'll talk about all of this. jedediah: thank you, maria. maria: see you later. jedediah: it is finally here, the long awaited brady versus rogers showdown, to determine who will head to super bowl lv.

quarterback of all time in my estimation the greatest of all time against what many call the most talented quarterback of all time, in aaron rodgers, in aaron rodgers' home, how do you see it. >> i'm going with the packers on this one by 6. the line is 3. obviously, two fantastic teams, two legendary quarterbacks, legends are made in the post season and they both have so much on the line. i think the packers have just been destined for this all season, they've been clicking since the beginning. the offense is playing out of their minds, at another level. i think ultimately they will triumph on a very cold, maybe even snowy day where the run game is going to be really crucial and for aaron rodgers, i don't know that he'll ever -- i don't know if anybody will ever catch tom brady with his six super bowl rings but to beat tom brady at lambeau field, that would be huge for aaron rodgers and his legacy. will: i believe in accountability.

something to see after everything they've been through, the mental stress they've been under since march. good job to the nfl for doing this for them. pete: we've got three games left, three chances when it comments to the nfl to do a chance to win money. i don't know if there's a truck. is there a truck in the -- >> there is still a truck, the ford f-150, indeed. pete: what is that, half a million dollars, an f-150, download the app. >> free to play. pete: you can bet on the chiefs and bills today. the winner of that takes on the winner of the nfc. >> that's gotten interesting with everything that patrick mahomes has been through this week. if you're a football fan, this is like your christmas to have these two games today. it's going to be fantastic. pete: thanks so much. always good to talk with you. we'll check in next week on who got the matchup right. >> have a good one. will: more "fox & friends" just moments away.
