tv   Hannity  FOX News  July 13, 2021 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT

6:00 pm
weeknight, show that is totally sincere enemy of lying come up a paucity, smugness and groupthink. we hope you have a great and cheerful night -- tonight sean hannity takes over seven seconds early. >> sean: we are counting seconds. i do get a kick out of it. great show. welcome to "hannity." a massive records setting inflation -- unprecedented waves of illegal immigration, china, russia, iran rolling over this great country and sadly whoever is in charge at the biden white house, well, is just getting started. state-mandated vaccine programs, that may also be headed your way. we will tell you the details, government dr. wannabe celebrity anthony fauci demanding that all your young children wear masks indefinitely. comrade de blasio i'm in
6:01 pm
new york, gavin newsom mandating masks in school, contradicting, oh, our own cdc guidelines. we have that news tonight. larry elder is now officially running to unseat newsom as governor of the great state of california. he will join us for his very first tv interview since his big announcement, and it comes with an endorsement. we will explain. i also tonight we will bring you the very latest out of cuba, but first, an important update from the u.s. olympic and paralympic committees. bizarre proposal to redesign the american flag. we are going to explain that in detail. we had a back and forth organization all day. but first tonight, breaking today, extremely troubling rhetoric from the president of united states. if you are 1 of millions of americans who disagree with the radical policies put forward by the democratic party, watch out, because joe biden, well, he referred his political opponents -- today referred to
6:02 pm
them as "domestic enemies." where's the media that got so upset when donald trump said the media is an enemy of the people because they lie and tell fake news? anyway, saying they are working to subvert american democracy. in a set of prepared remarks -- this wasn't off-the-cuff -- better suited for a despotic socialist dictator, frankly, joe biden said that our country is facing its most significant test since the civil war, echoing jen psaki, because all state legislatures -- why, they are requiring voter i.d. like his state? standardized early voting, chain of custody, integrity and verification for all ballots? and now according to whoever wrote joe's speech, any republican that supports integrity laws so we can have competence in election results is, what, an enemy of the state? and of course joe biden, as always, invoking jim crow once again. take a watch.
6:03 pm
>> president biden: 21st century jim crow assault is real. it's unrelenting. there's an unfolding assault taking place in america today, and attempt to suppress and subvert the right to vote in fair and free elections. an assault on democracy. an assault on liberty. i swore an oath to you, to god, to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution. that's an oath that forms a sacred trust to defend americans from all threats both foreign and domestic. the assault on free and fair elections is just such a threat, literally. i've said it before. we are facing the most significant test of our democracy since the civil war. that's not hyperbole. since the civil war. >> sean: most significant test since the civil war. it's not hyperbole. it's a civil war.
6:04 pm
okay, according to that bizarre speech, anyone that supports basic voter integrity laws is pretty much un-american and less of course you're a democrat like joe. to that end, joe biden is now empowering his department of justice -- he's weaponizing them, frankly. attorney general merrick garland is currently suing the state of georgia over their new voter laws, but he's not suing joe biden's home state of delaware and he's represented about 5,000 years, which are far more restrictive, far less access. take a look at your screen. georgia, they allow 17 days -- they actually mandate 17 days of early in person voting. delaware has no in person early voting. in georgia, anyone can vote absentee. in delaware you've got to give an excuse and meet specific requirements. in georgia, drop boxes for absentee ballots, they are
6:05 pm
available at county election offices all over the state. it's mandated. delaware has zero drop boxes for absentee ballots. both states require voter i.d. joe never lifted a finger to make voting more accessible in delaware, and it's not just delaware. wisconsin requires voter i.d., rhode island requires photo i.d., hawaii you have to actually recite your date of birth and address. in oregon, residents who don't vote regularly can be automatically canceled from the voter rolls. in connecticut, minnesota, new york, voters must meet certain requirements in order to vote absentee. unlike georgia. none of these deep blue states are facing a lawsuit from this now-emboldened, weaponized doj of joe biden. not one. clearly the left's hysteria over georgia and now texas has nothing to do at all in any way about civil rights. it is beyond hyperbole. it's destructive.
6:06 pm
they are playing the race card. oh, this is the worst challenge to our democracy since the civil war. it really? then why, joe, have you never lifted a finger in the decades and decades, frankly centuries, it seems, that you've served your state of delaware. you've never lifted a finger. merrick garland, where is your integrity? why aren't you suing joe's state of delaware that has far more restrictive laws than the great state of georgia? and by the way, everything to do with, what, i can only think of -- the only reason you don't want voter i.d. signature verification, chain of custody controls, partisan observers observing and cleaning up the voter rolls is got to have nefarious intentions. i would think this is a nonpolitical issue, so ask yourself why aren't democrats worried about ballot harvesting and election fraud and integrity in our vote so every american can have confidence in our results?
6:07 pm
tonight, joe actually accidentally answered that question out loud. according to biden it's not just about access to voting, but also who gets to count the votes. that's very interesting. take a look. >> president biden: it's no longer just about who gets to vote. or making it easier for eligible voters to vote. it's about who gets to count the vote. who gets to count whether or not your vote counted at all. >> sean: that's what i want, partisan observers on all side to watch the count start to finish. if democrats get their way, these far left bureaucrats in d.c. -- well, i guess they will be counting those votes writing every election law, literally usurping the constitutional power of state legislatures. that's what hr and sr one has always been about and it has nothing to do with voting rights, everything to do with centralized power and frankly the nefarious motives of democrats to think the only way they can win is to have no
6:08 pm
checks and balances. the democratic swamp, they want control of everything. the less argument that minorities and rural voters, as kamala harris suggested yesterday, oh, they just don't have access. they may not be smart enough to get a photo i.d. or register to vote is complete and total b.s. and quite frankly it is insulting, beyond insulting, to millions of americans, and that's not stopping kamala harris from going on national tv perpetuating this argument in the worst, most despicable way, frankly, possible. take a look. >> is agreeing to voter i.d. one of those compromises? >> i don't think that we should underestimate what that could mean. because in some people's minds, that means, well, you're going to have to xerox or photocopy your i.d. to send it into proof
6:09 pm
that you are who you are. well, there are a lot of people, especially who people live in rural communities, there's no kinko's, there's no officemax near them. >> sean: you could make the accommodations -- really, kamala? of course a large majority of americans including 59% of african-americans, they believe photo i.d. at requirements do not to scream it against certain voters. in addition to photo i.d., what are the important things here? we talk about them often in every state should adopt these, our top five and that if you want integrity in our elections, competence and the results, photo i.d., signature verification, chain of custody integrity, voter roll updates fr every election and partisan observers. that means democrats, republicans, independents, the green party, libertarians, they should all be allowed to have observers from every political side to watch the counting up close start to finish. the state of texas is now
6:10 pm
attempting to implement similar protections, but in order to, welcome a block that vote, democratic state leaders, they are leaving texas in order to prevent a quorum in the state house. see them, they are in that plane right there. i don't see any masks either. the very same democrats have called a filibuster and affront to democracy. the government private jet without a mask, the set off on one big expensive vacation to washington, d.c., to temporarily prevent a vote. make no mistake, these images perfectly encapsulate the modern democratic leftist new green deal party. the rules do not apply to them. the only thing that really matters is their statist, centralized power right there in the swamp. here with more, arizona attorney general mark berkowitz, now running for senate against mark kelly, the democratic incumbent. fox news contributor newt gingrich. i will start with you, mr. attorney general, because you did something quite interesting in the supreme court recently upheld that arizona's
6:11 pm
voting rules that restrict ballot harvesting and the submission of provisional ballots outside of one's own precinct, this was a big win and for the court to finally take it up -- to me it was a little too little, too late but a big win, a tip of the hat to you, sir. >> thank you, sean, for having me on and i think the importance of that case is it was a 6-3 decision and i argued that the supreme court recognizes that election integrity measures, common sense measures, are okay. they are consistent with the constitution and the constitution recognizes the state 'has time and manner statutes regarding how elections are conducted. that's what the constitution provides for and the reality is as you pointed out in your beginning is that the left is so hypocrite a go. we literally just argued another case last week where the democrats challenged our laws on ballot curing. basically if you don't find the ballot, you have to do so by election day. states like new york, connecticut, northeast, that don't allow any at all.
6:12 pm
is biden calling them out? no, because his rhetoric is basically about dividing this country and i think we all agree that common sense election integrity measures are good not only for arizona, but for america. >> sean: mr. speaker, they are calling this the worst challenge to our democracy since the civil war. you're a historian, i think it will take issue with that. then they are insulting people that live in rural communities. they're saying it's an assault on democracy, an assault on liberty and they are calling it jim crow. i don't know, great irony, when i compared your home state of georgia and their law -- there voting law with delaware, it is far more restrictive in delaware and far more accessible in your state of georgia. >> certainly technically correct. but of course that's not what this is about. this isn't about facts.
6:13 pm
this is about a narrative -- and i'm going to surprise you on two counts. first of, i don't know how many people picked up on this, but we ought to start talking about vice president kinko harris. kinko's went out of business 13 years ago. i mean, this is a woman totally out of touch with reality. a lot of people worry about president biden and his cognitive abilities. we ought to watch her for a week. she literally cited kinko's. kinko's has not been in existence for 13 years. i know that's a tricky thing if you're from california, but still, i think it tells you a lot about who they are. they don't know anything, they're not in touch with reality, they make it up as they go along. and i'm going to shock you. i agree with the president. this is the greatest threat to the survival of freedom since the civil war. they are determined to use the power of the federal government, they are determined to destroy
6:14 pm
the american military by bringing wokeness in. they are determined to weaken the police while strengthening criminals. they are determined to use the justice department, they are determined to side with oligarchs in censoring americans. i believe this is the greatest threat -- domestic threat not counting the soviet union or nazi germany -- the greatest domestic threat the united states has faced to freedom since the civil war and the threat is entirely in the democratic party, and it is a mortal threat and if they get their way, if they can pass the corrupt politicians act, you will see them steal everything they need to steal. >> sean: it is amazing the rhetoric that they are using. jim crow 2.0. the worst since the civil war. do you think they are successful? we have about 30 seconds each. mr. attorney general, we will start with you. >> no, i think that it's dangerous for the president of united states to use that rhetoric. he ran a someone who said he was
6:15 pm
going to be middle-of-the-road and instead he's putting this country on the highway to hell. as the speaker just entered though mike indicated, they are shredding the constitution and we need to stand up now because who knows when our liberties will be able to be saved again. >> sean: the polls show -- mr. speaker, you read a lot of poles in your many years that this is an 80-20 issue here. this is not even close. people don't want these simple integrity measures put in place, and we need them. >> but here's the problem you've got. freedom in cuba is probably an 80-20 issue. that doesn't mean the cuban government won't shoot enough people to slow it down. freedom in venezuela is probably a 90-10 issue. the fact is these people, the bidens, the harriss, the schumers, the pelosis, they are corrupting the military, they ae system and they will do whatever they have to to try to dominate us and to dominate all of the
6:16 pm
american people and impose their radical values. this is the greatest after the united states since the civil war. >> sean: this is scary, mr. speaker especially with your knowledge. mr. attorney general, good luck in your senate race. mark kelly out in arizona, an important race for the country. more on the democratic party's thirst for power. they once demanded -- and the mantra was that we the american people follow the science. i believe in science, i believe in vaccine science and especially when it comes to covid-19. now democrats have thrown science to the wind despite their own cdc guidelines and numerous studies showing that children face extremely wrote to low risk of getting sick or having convocations or god forbid dying from covid-19. in spite of cdc protocols and recommendations, dr. fauci is now demanding that children as young as 3 -- 3 -- wear masks indefinitely. good luck to your parents that,
6:17 pm
well, don't have kids as old as mine. take a look. >> the children were not able to get vaccinated because of their age should follow their -- their parents should follow with them -- the guidelines of the cdc that unvaccinated children of a certain age, greater than two years old, should be wearing masks. no doubt about that, that's the way to protect them from getting infected, because if they do, they can then spread the infection to someone else. >> sean: fauci isn't alone. now california, they want all students to wear masks when they finally returned to in person learning in the fall. by the way, kids in florida, they've been there a full year. de blasio in new york, he's also mandating masks in september. take a look. >> i'm absolutely confident based on this guidance and everything else that we've seen that we will able to get all of the kids back in school in september but for now we're sticking with the idea that wearing the mask is a smart
6:18 pm
thing to do in schools. we will keep assessing as we go along but i think for now it still makes sense. >> sean: what happened to trusting the science, comrade de blasio? the vaccines work, right? now vaccines are available to anyone older than 12. according to the cleveland clinic, those who already had covid, if we are following the science, they now have immunity. they are suggesting they don't need any vaccines, so why are democrats still obsessed with masks and now even moving towards forcing vaccines on people? yesterday the biden administration announced they are supporting any local efforts to mandate -- you hear me right -- mandate the vaccine. mandate? really? do we have freedom? medical privacy might is dr. biden smarter than your personal doctor? does he know anything about your private medical history? take a look. >> does president biden agree
6:19 pm
with dr. fauci that at the local level there should be more vaccine mandates? >> if i were never the context of the question, it was about federal mandates. i believe. it correct me if i'm wrong. that's not a decision that we are making. that is not our intention from the federal government. there will be decisions made by private sector entities, by universities, by educational institutions, and even perhaps by local leaders should they decide that is how to keep their community safe. if they decide to make that decision, we certainly support them in that step. >> sean: i support mandated vaccines such as their backdoor way of supporting mandating vaccines. they don't really care about freedom apparently. they only really seem to care about science only when it's convenient and they will do anything for power. it one more example, gavin newsom is now basically bribing californians with state approved stimulus payments released, oh,
6:20 pm
just before the upcoming recall election. how convenient. also moving the date of the election to avoid those embarrassing rolling blackouts that are anticipated in the middle of california's wildfire season that's coming. here with reaction fox news contributor lara trump. fox news contributor dr. nicole saphier with us. doctor, let's start with the medicine and let's start with the science, the cdc guidelines. if you're vaccinated, you don't need to wear a mask in school. that's what they say. if -- the cleveland clinic, if we are following the science, if you had covid, you don't need to get vaccinated. if we are actually following the science correctly, doctor, if i'm wrong, but we have now had numerous studies about therapeutics, regeneron, ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, that show that taken early it can mitigate symptoms of covid-19. am i following the science right, dr.? >> well, sean, i can tell you that the current recommendations continue to be very myopic and as you mention, yes, being fully
6:21 pm
vaccinated is one way to protect yourself and your family from covid-19, but as we have learned over the course of a year and a half, natural immunity as well gives some protection. whether or not it's as strong as vaccinated immunity, there is still a debate there but i can tell you that those who have recovered from covid-19 still have antibodies, have that b cell and t cell immune response and they are protected as well. they say those with two doses of the vaccine i the only way to take off your mask, that is not following the science and again, they are not taking into account the negative -- the consequences that have from these persistent public health restrictions that have played on people, including children. >> sean: let's talk about the mandate and so that jen psaki and the administration is supporting, lara trump. because we were told they would allow people to make the decision. i urge everybody, take this thing seriously, do your own research, consult your doctor or doctors and based on your unique
6:22 pm
medical condition and history, you and your doctor make that decision. dr. hannity is not qualified. i wish i was, but i'm not. but when they backdoor mandating vaccines, lara, isn't that really them supporting mandating vaccines? >> well, it certainly seems like it. look, i mean, you've just laid out so much important information. this has never, sean, been about following the science. it's never been about following the facts and the truth. it's been about control from day one. remember it was 14 days to slow the spread. that's how this started and now here we are mandating, apparently, that people get a vaccine. this should be up to the person and to a family and the idea that the government is now going to tell you whether or not you have to take a vaccine i think is insane. i fully support anyone that wants to get vaccinated. it was my father-in-law, president donald trump, that allowed us to have these
6:23 pm
vaccines. operation warp speed, were it not for that we would not see the country opening back up, the world, by and large, opening back up, but this stuff is crazy. the fact that we are seeing we've got to keep our kids masked in school, are these people insane? sean, i still take my kids to playgrounds and there are still children there with masks on, full families outdoors at a playground distanced 20 feet from other people with masks on. we have petrified the american people to such a degree it is going to take a long time to recover from this, but if we are following a science, what are we doing to our kids? obviously the doctor knows far more than i do, but i can tell you one thing, i'm not putting masks on my 3-year-old. i'm not putting a mask on my 1-year-old. this stuff is absolutely crazy. you've seen the videos of these poor kids crying because they get headaches at school from wearing the mask. they don't get to see the faces of the other kids. it is so bad for our kids.
6:24 pm
it's a really frightening situation in america right now. americans need to stand up and say "i am in charge of myself. i am in charge of my kids." >> sean: well said, well said. doctor, thank you, lara trump, thank you. straight ahead, our own sara carter. we have an exclusive report from miami, demonstrators are fighting back hard, taking to the streets, we will take you there live, we will get reaction from senator instagram, can america help cuba be free? and if so, how? straight ahead. ♪ ♪ unlike ordinary memory supplements, neuriva plus fuels six key indicators of brain performance. more brain performance? yes, please! neuriva. think bigger.

very few people have, right? you've seen cuba before. you watched it go through the revolution, and you watched the attempts by the united states government as well as the sea by, which you worked for. >> one thing -- you have to experience communism to understand it. for example, what is the significance of this be 29? important to me that it was not coordinated by anybody. it was a spontaneous explosion in one city. it was not programmed, that's the importance of it. one that took place in that city -- they start sending this through their telephone, but what was going on in there to differing areas. it means the cuban people

this is interesting, far left democrats bernie sanders, aoc, they have relentlessly attacked america, attack our founding principles, attack republicans. they have nothing bad to say about the oppression, the murder, the abuse, human rights abuses omma economic devastation by the murdering communist regime in cuba? ask yourself, why is that? why will they trash our country that is holding american flags even at this hour and they are not critical of cuba? is it because they see cuba, what, as their great model for america? because get this, democratic new greendale socialists of america of which "the squad" and bernie are affiliated with, they on monday declare their solidarity with a "revolution this moment of unrest," with the group also echoing cuba's president in blaming america's trade embargo for the unrest. that's our fault? suggesting they are actually
6:33 pm
supporting the communist government the protesters. here's the question america needs to be asking tonight. if joe is awake, he should be talking about it tonight, and that is how will this administration help this freedom movement in cuba overthrow this murdering communist dictatorship? the mayor of miami is even saying that a bombing should be on the table. take a look. >> with air strikes, so there's been many, many opportunities -- speak are you suggesting air strikes in cuba? >> what i'm suggesting is that that option is one that has to be explored and cannot be just simply discarded as an option that is not on the table. and there's a variety of ways the military can do it, but that's something that need to be discussed, it needs to be looked at as a potential option in addition to a variety of other options that can be discussed. >> sean: here with reaction, south carolina senator lindsey graham. senator, i ask you, how can this
6:34 pm
great country of ours support their great freedom movement against the murdering communist regime down in cuba, arming the resistance on the freedom fighters would not be off the table for me. >> well, all i can say is america is with the people in cuba, "the squad" is not america. bernie sanders is a democratic socialist. i like him personally but castro has there [indiscernible]. they actually admire the castro model in cuba. the problem is that "the squad" can't speak up against communism and socialism because that's sort of where they want to take our country. this is yet another reason why we will do well in 2022. joe biden is a wall. freedom need to now, president biden. you should go on television very soon and say we stand with your right to demand freedom. we are with you, we stand against the regime that's putting people in jail and

brainstormed and adding "we want to be clear, we love our country, we respect the american flag, we do not have any intention, not to mention the authority, to change our country 'swag that flies above the podium when a member of team usa achieves olympic or care olympic greatness." the question then remains tonight -- my question to them is why are you going to redesign the flag logo for your committee at all? why are you wasting the time and money to do so. what exactly is the problem with the flag as it is that you have every right to use? with the exception of the far left socialist extremists, most americans love their country deeply, take pride in the achievements of all americans in the olympics and for example we've shown you in inspirational scenes from two nhl games -- actually three where fans came together, they took over the singing of the national anthem and a new insight finds that 79%

even and these resources, couldn't they be better applied by supporting our athletes or giving it to an anti-doping agency to catch cheaters? old glory doesn't need rebranding. >> sean: very well -- that's the message i want to say. first of all, thank you both for how well you represented your country. we are proud of both of you. more importantly, to this olympic committee, if you're associated with the olympics, we have a flag. it's the american flag. stop wasting your creative efforts on something that we don't need. thank you both. when we come back, larry elder, he's now entered the california recall election against newsom. he will join us for an exclusive interview and also he gets his first endorsement. we will tell you who that is straight ahead. iory, rollerball design. because with the right pain reliever... life opens up.

i said hell no. this place is ungovernable. you have super majorities in the assembly buried super majority's in the senate and of course a left-wing governor. we have rising crime, rising homelessness, a rising cost of living and leo knows exactly what i'm talking about because he's a former public school teacher the declining standards of urban school so i said forget about it the more i looked at it, the more i saw how arrogantly this governor had handled a pandemic, imposing the most strict coronavirus lockdowns of any of the 50 states while violating them at that french restaurant with the very people that set down the mandates when his own kids still enjoyed in school private education, while his own business and winery was exempted from the mandates, something has to happen, and so i decided to jump into this race and it will people to go to, because he has no limits on how much money he can raise and spend but we do. i cannot win this race most people in california and outside california contribute money, so please go to

get the date early before the wildfires and the brownouts and the state is a hard blue state. question one is a hard one. that's the recall vote. will we get to question two? >> i think so. as leo pointed out, 2.2 million people signed the position and recalled this guy and many of them are democrats, many of them are independents, the very people who voted for him two years ago. i'll tell you something else, we have private ballots' you can go into the privacy of your mail-in ballot or your voting booth and close the curtains and vote for a republican -- you don't have the tell your friends. you can be an independent and democrat. you like the crime come elect the homelessness, you like the fact that the cost of living is causing them people to leave the state -- for the first time without a net migration out of california -- if you're not happy about that, go to, that's p let's get some common sense. >> sean: must read about harry and meghan next. good luck, larry. thank you, leo, we will
