"thanks so much for joining us, i'm maria bartiromo. today, weakness on the world stage. president biden coming home from the middle east with no commitments from the saudis after an embarrassing fist bump with the man he promised was a pariah to the world. and instead, biden receives another lecture, this time from the saudis who say the u.s. has made human rights mistakes, and oil is not even part of the summit, so no promises on
producing more of it to push down gas prices in america. coming up, congressman ronny jackson on how biden's mental capacity is affecting global relations and national security. then, tell us how you really feel. >> -- will help build this organization with the understanding that this diversity of this community, as distinct as the bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of miami and as you meek as the breakfast tacos here in san antonio -- [laughter] is your strength. maria: the out of touch comments from first lady jill biden on the hispanic community as the surge of illegal migrants at the border intensifies this weekend. and the latino community moves in droves towards the gop. coming up, newly-elected texas

gasoline prices lower in america. if instead, the president has more gaffes and awkward moments on world stage including discussing the holocaust and american troops. the ongoing cringe-worthy moments that have sparked even supporters to question biden's leadership. "the new york times," which endorsed joe back in 2020, published a report last week on the president's age becoming, quote, an uncomfortable issue for democrats, writing: the often -- he often shfls when he walks, and aides worry he will trip on a wire. he stumbles over words during public events, and they hold their breath to see if he makes it to the end without a gaffe. but is it more than just age, and if so, has biden's capacity become a national security issue over the last year? >> the best way to get something done, if you, if you hold it near and dear to you that you like to be able -- anyway.
[audio difficulty] >> we're going to seize their yachts, their luxury homes and other ill-begotten gains of putin's -- yeah. kleptocracy. people have waitedded for relief. i got them $1.9 trillion are relief so far. their going to be -- they're going to be getting checks in the mail that are consequential for childcarement it is noteworthy that the percentage of women who registered to vote and cast a a ballot is persistently higher than the men who coso. el of quote. repeat the line. we'll always honor the bravery and sacrifices of the americans who have served, including my son, major beau biden, who was stationed in iraq for a year.
later today i will once again return to the hollowed ground to keep alive the truth of the holocaust, horror of hold -- holocaust. maria: my next guest called on president biden to take a cognitive test to do so back in 2020. ronny jackson served as the white house physician for presidents george w. bush, barack obama and president trump. his new book, holding the line, explores time treating all three presidents in the west wing with. congressman, thanks very much for joining us. congratulations on the book. and met me just say that there is -- let me just say that there is no joy in discussing the commander in chief in this weakened position. congressman, your thoughts in terms of president biden's mental capacitied today. capacity today. >> well, i think it's on full display for the entire country and for the world, unfortunately. and i've been saying this since he was candidate joe biden,
maria, this man should not have been put in a position to be our commander in chief, our head of state and our president. and when i initially said that back before he was elected, there was a lot of pushback, and i said give it another two years or so, it won't be ronny jackson talking about the it anymore, it's going to be his own party. that's what we see happening right now. this is becoming a real issue for us. you can see domestically what he's done to us, the southern border, the economy, the cost of gas. people's lives are not in a good spot right now. and overseas he's a national embarrassment to us right now, and it's a big national security issue for us when we have somebody going over -- his job as our commander in chief, as our head of state is to inspire confidence and to project strength, and he does the opposite. i'm seriously worried about it. i think everybody in the country's starting to get extremely worried about him. he's not in a position to do the job he's currently being asked to do. maria: yeah. and that's why i started the conversation by saying, look, you know, there's no joy here. let's put politics aside.
this is a serious issue. this is our commander in chief, and we are watching this from america but also watching this are our adversaries, the chinese communist party, iran, north korea, etc. look, congressman, you treated president obama in the white house while joe biden was vice president. can you compare what you saw then with the vice president joe biden to what you see now? and without asking you to, you know, diagnose or prescribe, tell me, roughly speaking, what you think is going on. he did the other day discuss his brain aneurysm which really was a shock to me that he discussed it publicly, but he did mentionit. >> yeah. i saw him, you know, periodically throughout the eight years i was there. i wasn't his physician at the time. i oversaw the guy who did take care of him, but i wasn't his physician. i saw joe biden that was always
prone to gaffes, but these aren't qualifies anymore. something's changed toward, you know, during the time that president trump was our president, something happened to joe biden, started having another issue, a cog any ty issue that's related to his age. and like i said before, i'm not his physician, i haven't examined him, so i'm not going to make a diagnosis. there's a lot of diseases that have a wig cognitive -- big cognitive e component. i don't know what he's got going on, but he has something that's progressive related to his age. and, you know, there's a lot of stuff you can do, maria, there's a lot of jobs you can have out there that you can still be successful if you're not at the top of your game. president of the united states is not one of them. so i see a different joe biden now than the one that i saw when he was vice president at the white house, and i think there's lots of tape and lots of video for 40 years of this man's career. anybody can go back and compare some of those earlier years and some of the gaffes to what's happening now, and this is something very different. this is very concerning. this man is not in control, and
he's not leading this country. something else is going on behind the scenes, and there are orr people pulling the strings, and that is very concerning for us. like you said, all of our adversaries see this as a window of opportunity right now. everyone is going to try to get away with everything they can before he's done, talking about china, russia, iran and and everybody. this is putting our country at great risk right now. maria: and you came at this from a medical position giving, given the fact that you did treat those three presidents. back in february of 2020 you put out a tweet saying remember the cognitive test i gave donald trump, the one he aced, sounds like somebody else might need some testing done. scary. after that tweet came out, you received a note from president barack obama. tell me what obama said to you. you write about this in your new book, "holding the line are." 9 he said: i have to express my disappointment on the cheap shot
you took at joe biden via twitter. it was unprofessional and beneath the office you once held. it was it is also disrespectful to me, writes obama, and the many friends you had in our administration. tell me about this e-mail that you received from obama. >> well, you -- as you read there, i got scolded pretty well by him. i was headed to campaign, and i saw this tweet that ronna mcdaniel had put out with a video clip of joe biden. didn't know exactly what state he was in. he didn't know what office he was running for and, you know, i mean, it was a cognitive mess. i got a little frustrated with the double standard and the hypocrisy. you remember when i was president trump's physician, the far left, the academic medicine, the mainstream media, they were relentless in pursuit of me, constantly coming after me about testing and president trump's mental and physical capabilities. and then here we have a president that's clearly got something on, and crickets. nobody's saying a single thing. so i retweeted that video she
sent and made the comments you read there, i thought it was fairly benign. and within 20 or 30 minutes my phone rings, i look down, i got an e-mail direct from president obama, you know, just scolding me about this. i don't know, it was a little bit -- id had mixed emotions about it, it was kind of a combination of being a little pissed off and having my peel fooings hurt -- feelings hurt. he he came at me pretty hard and so i didn't know exactly what i was going to do. i thought about it for a little bit, i called somebody who i knew would understand the situation i was in. i called my friend dan bongino, he said, look, ronny, you don't owe this guy anything, don't even respond to this. i kind of followed his lead, and i didn't reply to the e-mail. i had thought about calling him, but i didn't. maria: well, i mean, there were signs that joe biden was with declining during the 2020 campaign, i mean, let's face it. he stayed in the basement the whole time during the campaign.
so who knew what when? are they hiding this and feeding him drugs to allow him to function? i know he goes home to delaware a lot, more than any other president. so i guess my question is, what did obama know, what did jill biden know, and who's running the white house right now? and are they covering up for these mental issues? >> well, that's the big question everybody's asking, who's really pulling the strings, who's running the country right now. we don't know the answer to that if it's susan rice, ron klain or joe biden. they're doing exactly what you said, they're rolling him out at specific times during the day, he's got good days and bad days. whether or not they have him on drugs, i don't know. there are drugs out that that can improve your -- we don't know because his physician habit stood up and took questions -- hasn't stood up and took the questions that i took when i was
trump's physician. they saw him every day, they stayed in close contact with him, i'm sure, after the obama-biden administration was over. somebody should have done something. maria, i think they were so blinded by the fact that if joe biden came into office, they were going to populate the entire west wing with obama folks, and that actually happened. initially, there were a ton of obama folks in the west wing. if i think that they thought that the risk was worth it to get their people back into the west wing, and they just ignored the fact that this man had some serious cognitive issues. and now they're going to have to answer why because it's getting worse, unsustainable at this particular point. maria: wow. in fact, there's a famous interview which we with ran a couple of weeks ago, we'll run it again in the coming weeks. it's president obama talking to stephen colbert and he's saying what i would love the most is if i'm in my basement with my sweats on, and i'm just directing whoever is there, and they can carry out my orders. basically, that's exactly what he did. that's to what he set up.
now, you put out a tweet and you say that he not -- biden will not finish his term. and you say that he should are resign. tell me about this. should and will two different things. how do you see this playing out in. >> well, i think he will. and i say that because i just don't see this getting any better. this is, you know, all of these issues we talked about with cognitive decline related to age, they get worse not better with time, and this is going to continue to get worse, and they're going to have to do something about it. i don't know if they'll go so far as to enact the 25th amendment or talk him into resigning, but there are other ways they could get rid of him. i see them looking the other way while some of this hunter biden stuff blows up. his party's already slowly starting to abandon him and run away from him because of his polling and his cognitive issues and the embarrassment that he's become for the party. and i think that they will look for opportunity to throw him under the bus in the next few years, next few months and try
to get rid of him because i know, i think that they also know he cannot make it to the end of his term in 2024. maria: yeah. even his biggest support ors at the new york times, maggie haberman, wrote a scathing piece about him. she's the one who was spreading the russia collusion lie over and over again -- >> right. maria: -- for years, and even she is turning on him. congressman, it's great to get your instincts on this and your insights. we so appreciate you, thank you, sir. >> thank you, maria, appreciate it. maria: congressman ronny jackson. he would know national security risks as well as the medical background of prime ministers. we'll take a break. when we come back, one of the gop's rising stars, texas congresswoman mayra flores is here reacting to jill biden calling latinos tacos earlier this week and why this is just one of the many reasons hispanic voters are flocking to the republican party now ahead of november's midterm elections.
we'll be right back. ...the tower cam for a - hey! folks, we seem to have a visitor. it looks like - looks like you paid too much for your glasses. ...who? anyone who isn't shopping at america's best - where two pairs and a free exam start at just $79.95. book an exam today. mission control, we are go for launch. ♪ um, she's eating the rocket. ♪ lunchables! built to be eaten. ♪
maria: welcome back. well, on their official web site, the democrat national committee calls itself the party of inclusion. so why are so many hispanic voters flocking to the gop? a new new york times/sienna college survey plushed wednesday finds 63% of hispanics disapprove of joe biden's performance. first lady jill biden's tone deaf speech in san antonio, texas, on wednesday might explain why. >> -- built this organization with the understanding that that the diverse the city of this community -- diversity of this community, as distinct of the bogotas of the bronx, as beautiful as blossoms of miami and as you meek as the breakfast tack -- unique as the breakfast tacos here in san antonio -- [laughter] is your strength.
maria: texas senator ted cruz, the first hispanic-american to serve as a u.s. senator from texas, fired back. >> the biden white house has time to write speeches at something called a latinx conference -- i don't know what that is -- where they very kindly called latinos tacos. well, marco and i both appreciate being called tacos. the thing to remember about that speech, that wasn't a gaffe. finish that wasn't joe biden going off script. some white house operative sat down and typed into the teleprompter, this is a good idea, to call hispanics a bunch of tacos. maria: joining me right now is congress congresswoman mayra flores who last month became the first mexican-born congresswoman to serve in the house after her special election victory in texas' 34th district which had been democrat run for more than
100 years. it's great to see you this morning, thanks so much for being here. >> no, thank you so much for having me. maria: so what did you think about jill biden talking about tacos, referring to the hispanic community? is and, by the way, obviously, she met bodegas -- meant bodegas, not bogota. [laughter] >> well, it doesn't surprise me jill biden and the far left don't see us as americans. they see us as tacos. and they think that's allst going to take for us to vote for them, and it's not. they're going to have to get to work. we really have had enough of the democrat party's far-left policies that are hurting us tremendously here in south texas and in the entire country. maria: yeah. i mean, we have the latest numbers in terms of the hispanic community. i want to take a break, mayra, and get back to you to talk about what is important to the hispanic community and why they are leaving the democrat party and going to the gop.
a short break right now and then a closer look at border crisis erupting in your backyard with some sheriffs in your state declaring an invasion. why is the biden administration ignoring the millions of illegal migrants swarming the united states and the thousands of pounds of illegal narcotics smuggled in? we'll be right back. ♪ ♪
>> the american families are worried about how they're going to put food on the table, gas. they're worried about the economy, their children. you layer all these things on top of each other, and i would say that all of texas and americans across this nation are just going to say no more this november, and we are going to see a massive walkaway movement from the democrat party to the
republican party because of this. maria: and that was hispanic texas congressional candidate monica de la cruz last month discussing the political shift across america as president biden's approval if rating hits a record low this morning of 36%. as you see, we are back with texas congresswoman mayra flores. congresswoman, i want to talk a bit about what's most important to the hispanic community. that is sting of inflation. and yet the democrats have been trying to make inroads into the hispanic community since 2020. how are they doing? >> they're doing horrible. they've abandoned the hispanic community. the hispanic community's about god, family and hard work, and right now our biggest concern is the economy. it's costing the average american $460 a month. can you imagine what it's like to be a senior citizen that lives on a fixed income? i work with the elderly community for many years, and i
can't imagine what their current situation is. and i really do believe that the reason why we were successful in the special election is because with we were focused on god, family values and the economy. and, of course, the border crisis that is hurting us tremendously here in south texas and throughout the country. maria: yeah. i want to can you more about -- ask you more about that border crisis. we're looking at the cost of essentials in america, just food, fuel and rent soaring in the last year largely because of all of the spending in the democrat agenda. the president keeps blaming vladimir putin, but we know, obviously, that inflation really started stoking after the president signed into law his covid relief package back in march of 2021. i want to get your thoughts on what the democrat strategy has been. they seem to be pitting you against alexandria ocasio-cortez. who calls you, what does she call you, an extreme right-winger? >> yeah, i guess me standing for
god and family values, that's what they call far right. i am not far right, do not hold their values. i'm a conservative, and i will always represent the hispanic community. i grew up with those values. they have been instilled in me is since i was born, and i'm not willing to put my values a aside for no political party. and the democrat party wants to forget how we were raiseed. they want us to forget if about -- forget about our family values. hay want us to be obedient to party. i'm an immigrant. they claim to be in support of immigrants, and i only get but hate from the democrat party. they want to send me back to mexico. [laughter] maria: well,ing it's interesting because you were a democrat. so to come up with these, you know, attack lines on you not even understanding your own history, and then that shove by nancy pelosi on your daughter
when you were first sworn in. we have a picture of that. that must have really hurt. i mean, your daughter handled it beautifully, but this was pretty outrageous to see. >> it really was and very disappointing. but it doesn't surprise me. these people say that they a support immigrants, but they don't want us near them. they want to keep us poor, they don't want us to rise. they want to continue controlling our vote. that's why they want so many people to come to this country, but they want to have them in control. that's not going to happen. immigrants love god, love family values, and they're up for a big surprise coming this november. maria: the other thing is the border. your husband is a border agent, and he has been defending this great country now on the front lines. you see it in your backyard. we have new pictures from bill melugin who's doing an incredible job there at the
border. we brought this program to the border four times already, and i'll be going again. we see what's happening there, and the democrat party seems to to just with ig -- be ignoring what feels like an invasion. is this an invasion? and give us your sense of what's going on now, what needs to be done? >> our border patrol agents are truly our heroes. they don't have the resources and the manpower to handle this crisis. it is really a humanitarian crisis, and the biden administration doesn't care about children being abused and going through rape just to get here to the united states illegally. and then sold into child sex trafficking. the biden administration is at fault. they continue to encourage people to come here illegally knowing that they're going to have to go through such dangerous journey to come here to the united states. why not focus on legal immigration and improve the legal process so good people that want to come here to work hard for the american dream can do it but not have to go through
that dangerous journey? it blows my mind why would they continue to push illegal immigration mowing it's fund -- knowing it's funding criminal organizations that have taken over the entire southern border? i have family in mexico. i cannot visit as often because i'm afraid. a lot of people here in south texas have families throughout mexico, and they cannot if visit their loved ones because of of the criminal organizations. so we understand. we don't want what we're scared of to come here. i never want no american to ever feel afraid to visit their families. i don't wish that on anyone. and it's heartbreaking to see, and it's difficult for me because i have family this mexico still. in mexico still. maria: yeah. of and there's also the drugs, right? fentanyl coming in, swarming the u.s. border, making it to big cities in 24 hours, and it's being made in china. we don't see any pushback on the
fentanyl either, so that's as well a problem. congressman, it's great to see you. we are going to be watching, obviously, your race come november, and we so appreciate your time and your leadership. thank you so much, mayra flores. >> thank you so much. god bless you. maria: and to you. we will see you soon. quick break and then coming up, the china threat. the democrats are tiptoeing around the chinese communist party canceling u.s. policy that does not serve the ccp as the communists make deadly fentanyl which is being pushed into america, acquiring land near if u.s. air force bases in america, continuing to steal intellectual property and aiding russia in its war against the ukraine. will joe biden ever get tough on china? former green beret and congressman michael waltz is here next. stay with us.
maria: welcome back. well, upcoming week vladimir putin will travel to tehran to meet with the leaders of iran and turkey just days after president biden ended his tour of the middle east, coming home empty-handed on promises from the saudis. as biden continues to push the u.s. to get back into a nuclear deal with iran. the lines are certainly being drawn across the world as china has been supporting russia in its war against ukraine. joining me right now to assess the global threats is florida congressman and former green beret combat veteran michael waltz. congressman, great to see you. thanks very much for being here. >> yeah, thanks, maria.
maria: i want to talk about the chessboard globally in terms of these lines being drawn, but first, give us your assessment of president biden's trip to the middle east. >> you know, i'd give it mixed, maria. i'm glad he went to stand with our greatest ally in israel, the squad and other progressives call an apartheid state. so at least he took a stand with progressives there. but i was disappointed, you know, he reverts right back to this giveaway of billions of dollars to the iranian are regime -- regime, you know, in the hopes that they won't pursue a nuclear weapon. look, no one wants any type of military action against iran, but we have to make it clear to the iranians it's on the table. the israelis made that clear during the trip, but biden fell back to the billion dollar giveaway here and only if iran believes that that program could get taken out do i think at this
point as they race towards a nuke which will is set off an arms race in the middle east, a nuclear arms race in the middle easts, will iran back down. and the biggest way that we could do that is say it, make it clear on the international stage from the commander in chief and give the israelis the technical military equipment that they've been asking for and this administration's been holding back on. maria: well, i don't know whose idea the fist bump was, but it's getting panned across the country. if the president sounded amusing when asked about it. listen to this on friday, watch. >> mr. president? >> yes. >> you're coming under a lot of fire for your fist bump with with the crown prince. [laughter] i just wanted to give you a chance to respond to that, but also how can you be sure that another incident, another murder like jamal khashoggi's won't happen again? >> god love you, what a silly question. how could i possibly be sure of any of that? i just made it clear if anything like that occurs again, they'll get that response and much more.
maria: what do you think, congressman? >> you know -- [laughter] look, this is an 80-year relationship with the saudis. it's not perfect, they are not % by any means -- perfectly any means, but we have to maintain that relationship. as you said in your lead-in, the russians and chinese are absolutely happy to fill void. what i thought was kind of pathetic was the president left with no announcement if on oil. they basically said, well, thank you very much for your visit, and we'll think about it and we'll talk to opec about it. i mean, the president would have done a lot better to visit texas, visit oklahoma, let's talk about domestic production. and if e if he has to go abroad, he refuses to stand up to progressives, how about you go places like our friends, kurds, that are absolutely wanting to
produce more oil in line with u.s. interests. but -- of. [laughter] again, very mixed, very mixed review on all of it. maria: well, i want to get your thoughts on china because it feels like this administration continues this soft on policy for china. i mean, look at the china policy that we have listed, all of the things that we've seen in this first year and a half. we know that there are many reports that the family has taken tens of millions of dollars from chinese officials who are tied to the communist party. i mean, and this is china's way of doing things, you know? give gifts, lend money and then overall, you know, take over. he has failed to demand any real investigation into the origins of covid. he's spoken to xi jinping at least five times, and as far as i know, he's not brought up the subject, although he said he brought it up. we don't have any evidence of that. of failed to confront if china on fentanyl. it's made by china and pushed through mexico. he is sending china from
america's strategic reserve, and now he's considering lifting tariffs on chinese imports. if we could show that graphic again, christopher, please, put that up because it is a long list of soft on china policy that we continue to see. your thoughts on what's going on here. >> you know, and at the same time, maria, the chinese are buying up america. they are buying up huge tracts of land which, oh, by the way, happen to be key farming tractses but also near our military bases. they're buying up our food supply, chicken, pork, other producers, and they're buying up our technology if they can't steal it. they come in and hay buy it. and what are they doing with all of it? they're creating dependencies on them, and they're handing the technology over to their military as he was the most rapid military buildup in modern history. and, look, at the end of the day the democrats want to talk about defund police, i've been saying let's defund dictatorships. let's defund the chinese
communist party. but we have wall street, our politicians, academia, the sports industry, hollywood, you name it, that are absolutely drunk on chinese dollars. the chinese communists know it, xi knows it, and they're looking to win the economic war way before there's any type of military conflict. and we've got to wake up as a country, and this administration is totally asleep at the switch. if. maria: right. well, the leadership begins at the top, and the administration apparently is okay with unwitting investors investing in chinese companies tied to the chinese communist party that may very well end up turning around and fighting america. tom cotton has a problem with this esg agenda, and he says that he wants to investigate esg practices from groups like blackrock which he says have created a climate cartel to suppress investment in the fossil fuel industry in america, and that's contributing to
$5-a-gallon gasoline are. your thoughts on the investments of american families and this federal fund having a wide open window. this is the 401(k) for federal employees, they're able to invest in chinese companies that may very well get hostile on america. we are funding their expansion. >> oh, we absolutely are. but how sad and ironic to have our military members' retirement plan start to be invested into beijing that lists all of their defense companies. that money's going right to the future chinese stealth fighters, tanks and planes that'll be shooting our men, shooting at our men and women. and we had an amendment to stop that, to ban it, and the democrats came back and said, well, we'll support you in banning funds going into chinese firms if you agree to allow these esg and environmental bans as well.
the irony there, maria, is that that's going to also flow to china because they've cornered the market on solar panels. so it's shutting down american energy independence flowing through this green obsession over into china, and i can show you satellite are images that are available on the market of chinese solar plants being powered by coal-fired plants right next door. this isn't about the environment for china, it's about creating dependencies and making america dependent. and the left is playing right into their hands. maria: yeah. and, by the way, you said at the top of the interview china's influence campaign in the u.s., a chinese company recently purchased farmland in north dakota 12 miles from a u.s. air force base with sophisticated military drone technology. congressman, we're watching all of this. we so appreciate your insight. thank you, sir. if. >> thank you, maria. maria: congressman michael waltz. quick break and then 20 # 32 u.s. senate candidate blake
>> we went from a secure border to chaos. we went from energy if independence to the president begging iran, opec and venezuela to increase production. we went from safe streets to record levels of crime, and we went from stable price toss a 41-year high inflation rate, and i haven't even gotten into foreign policy or the attacks on our first amendment. and, of course, last week, the attacks on our second amendment rights. maria: yeah. >> there's a reason, maria, more than 7 out of 10 of our fellow citizens think the country is on the wrong track. it -- they think that because it's true. they understand. this great country is in a terrible situation because of joe biden and their policies. maria: and that was ohio congressman jim jordan on this
program last month on why he expects a red wave come november if with 85% of americans now saying that the country is on the wrong track with multiple crises erupting across the globe as a result of joe biden and the democrats' policies. my next guest is competing in what is being called one of the most important competitions of 2022 with the hope of setting america back on the right track. blake masters is the former chief operating officer of key owe capital and and is running to unseat democrat senator mark kelly in arizona. he joins me now. blake, great to see you this morning. thanks very much for being here. >> always a pleasure, maria. maria: so your primary race is coming up, we have the numbers. you are in the lead with the arizona senate are republican primary. tell us about your prioritieshow you're feeling about the race. >> feeling good about the race, maria. i think i'm the boldest candidate in the race. i'm running on this fantastic
america first agenda. i was honored last month to receive president trump's endorsement which has been rocket fuel for the campaign. we're not complacent, i'm certainly acting like the underdog, and priorly number onk about this -- is to seal the border, you know? but there's a lot of priorities because the democrats, everything they touch is just on fire right now. it's really frustrating. maria: yeah. it's a great point because mark kelly has tried to distance himself from joe biden and his policies even on the border and the economy. he helped sink one of biden's a labor nominees, pushed the president's open new drilling in the gulf of mexico and hammered the administration over title 42 the, yet this all happened just recently. we hadn't heard a peep about the border from him for the years prior. >> well, that's right, you know? this is an election year, and so mark kelly, he knows the democrats have failed. he himself has failed. he's got nothing to run on, and so of course he's going to make noises about being independent and, oh, we need to hold biden
accountable. no, that's an act. he hides behind this facade of pretending to be a moderate. actually, he votes in lockstep with chuck schumer and for the joe biden open borders/inflation agenda. so to flip this seat, what i have to do this fall is just tell the truth about mark kelly. we're going to expose his left-wing voting record, and we're not going to let him get away with pretending to be a moderate. maria: and now the department of justice is suing arizona over their voting rules. i want to get your take on what you expect from the election marley as it relates to -- particularly as it relates to voting. we will get there after the break. also your thoughts on technology surveillance across america and elon musk backing out of the twitter deal. we'll be right back with blake masters. stay with us. ♪ ♪

maria: welcome back. i am back with blake masters, the former coo of keo capital who is running for senate in arizona. the doj said that arizona should not have a law that requires citizens to show proof of id to vote, and that's why they're suing them. first question, are you concerned about your election being fair? you were vocal about the arizona voting back in 2020. what has changed, and do you think there will be issues come november? >> we've made some progress, the state legislature's passed some good laws, but, yeah, i'm concerned about it. you know, the good news is a lot of other people are concerned about it too, and if we take this concern and we mobilize it, right, we need poll workers, poll observers, we need eyes, ears and boot on the ground, and if we mobile ifize, we make it much harder for the left to
cheat. i'm not complacent, we can't get complacent but, man, i think we can make this red wave happen, maria. i talk to registered independents every day, some who did vote for biden, they a apologize. bring back mean tweets if it means $2 gas. so i think we take back the center. maria: i want to ask you about big tech. you know this space so well. people are worried that there is unlawful surveillance are underway of ordinary american citizens by big tech and, certainly, by the communist party. what can you tell us? >> unfortunately, there is. that's just true. the concern is well-founded. one thing i want to do in the senate is run a digital bill of rights that makes sure you own your data, right? not facebook, not google. we need to hold these companies accountable. these companies are actively censoring conservatives, actively pushing left-wing narratives. soft 06 -- these companies are
ideological, they're self-professed arbiters of truth, and i think it's dangerous to the public, and we've got to put a stop to it. maria: great agenda, blake. we'll be watching. blake masters joining us. that'll do it for us on "sunday morning futures." have a great rest of your weekend. catch this program again today at 3 p.m. right here on fox news. have a good day, everybody. ♪ ♪ next time, go to america's best - where two pairs and a free exam start at just $79.95. can't beat that. can't beat this, either. book an exam today at americasbest.com
♪ ♪ howard: never seen anything remotely like it, the media trying to knock president biden out of the running for a second term. it feels like a -- campaign. in fact, if the media were a political organization, as some of their critics believe, we'd say they're carpet bombing joe biden, trying to damage him to the point where he can't run again. by the way, the media are also trying to disqualify donald trump, far less surprising but still happening. the press does not want a rematch. remember how everyone t
