wasn't able to get in. he went to the side and broke in a door not as secure and stole cash and alcohol. >> todd: louisville crime up, property crime surging 99%, let's face it, my visits to louisville, very safe city, why do you think something like this happened and the numberss, why do you think things are happening in your once safe city? >> it's quite unbelievable, over the last couple years, we've seen a huge exodus of the police from the police department due to lack of support from the administration or the mayor's office and anti-police sentiment. we are down 300 police officers, officers worked a double shift and said it is going to be a week to 10 days before they can get a detectivive to investigate
our crime and we still haven't heard from a detectivive. >> todd: they were working an 18-hour shift when they arrived at your establishment. down 25%, a lot of officers to be down. why do you say that is happen something >> it is a huge number and this occurred since 2018 and it is terrible, and it is, due to the fact that the anti-police culture we have now and the lack of support, from government and from the administration, our authorized strength was about 1300 officers previously, which we didn't think was adequate to begin with, we need about 1600 officers on the police department and we're just above 1000 right now, that is not helpful when something happens to a business owner or citizen in our city and we're trying to respond when manpower is low.
>> todd: they are having trouble recruiting because of this attack on the notion of being an officer, notion of law enforce mentsz? >> we don't recruit, we can't recruit. we heard from our recruiters it is embarrassing when you don't have anything to offer that will permeate this issue going on in our country. it feels like an attack on law enforcement. our profession is dying and will continue that way, and will not get better unless we step up and do something to stop that and to ensure that we have folks that want to come do the job. >> todd: when your business dies, the business of policing go the way of dot do-do, as well.

handle that moment? >> joe: she pushed back, good to see her back, she is a true conservative, the other conservatives they have on there recently. my daughter received holy communion and had to go to class every week and my wife and i had to go and there were tests and intense ccd. i remember relearning the 10 commandments and thou shall not kill puts a wrench into whoopi goldberg's argument. pretty sure god is not anti-abbott or killing a baby. that referendum was victory for those who are pro-choice. the biden supreme court sent the decision back to the states and therefore the voters in the
states and gave the power back to the people, that is what the framers intended and all you read on social media online, see, the supreme court, we showed you, no, they showed you how it should be done. let people vote on this stuff and make their own decisions and not have it decided by a bunch of men and women in robes in washington. >> todd: it shows how truly ignorant people are of how the supreme court works, to your points, it worked as intended to. state rights, state decide. "new york times" editorial board say democrats reached cynical low by meddling in gop elections. democrats want to hold on to majority, selling out to do it, disappointing low for the
democrats party. strategy is to help beat middle of the road candidate. they have worst chance against the democrats take in the general. >> joe: i love this quote in there, if democrats believe democracy is in danger and need republican support to save it, they weakened their standing of dependence by aaligning with those who would thwart it. this was going on during the campaigns, the editorial board has no standing because writing this after the fact shows backbone of jellyfish. >> carley: backbone of jellyfish, we'll leave it there, thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. >> joe: see you friday. >> carley: imagery there.
>> todd: white house taking victory lap over gas prices and taking credit for tackling putin's price hike, many americans do not see a reason to celebrate. mercedes schlapp on that next. >> carley: check in with brian kilmeade to see what is coming up on "fox and friends." i wonder what he's wearing, maybe he hasn't gotten dressed yet. >> todd: if he is not dressed, he cannot be on television. >> todd: huge violation, we'll be right back.

>> president biden is making abortion a top priority after signing an executive order that paves the way for medicaid to pay for out-of-state abortion. joining us live from cpac texas now. you're joe biden there talk about the power -- i've got to tell you you. i think the fact that jill biden is trying to speak for all the women, that's a big mistake. what i've learned as i've traveled across the country is the fact that you are finding more and more women for speaking out, very proud of their conservative principles and proud of standing up for america first policies. they have to remember that a woman is not simply a body part. it's not all about abortion.
it's about other big important issues including making sure we know strong economy. and so i think the mere fact that joe biden is moving forward with an executive order on medicaid, paying for abortions, this is something the american people reject it they don't want taxpayer dollars going to abortion. it's something you're going to see a continued battle as we enter into the midterm election and into the presidential election year. >> president biden is assuming all women are pro-choice. there's a lot of women out there, the pro-life movement is really run by movement. a lot really happened this week when it comes to the abortion issue but there's also the doj
appeared where to start going? is it the sign of more things to come when it comes to the doj? >> certainly you are seeing the divide between the red states and the blue states. they are allowing the voters to decide where it stands. obviously their legislators decide where the abortion issue will stand. states like texas and oklahoma pushing for the heartbeat bill, and you are seeing more and more these states moved in that direction. obviously for the blue states their creed to move forward with more of a radicalized late-term abortion scenario which i think is very tragic for the rights of the unborn. this battle, as we know with the overturning of roe v. wade, it's going to lie in the face and it's going to take time. there will be some growing pains in each of the states. but josie definitely the mainstream media pushing this
narrative of abortion rights and that's important to be moving forward in the states. this is going to have to -- like i said it's going to have to play itself out. obviously kansas was a disappointment with the loss of the value to value the vote event meant that didn't pass. so they are going to have to revisit -- they're going to have to revisit it say to you we go with the heartbeat bill? that's where they're going to have to listen to their constituents. >> switching gears. the white house not bragging about gas prices dropping $0.80 and 50 days even though it still almost a dollar higher than last year. take a listen to those. >> prices are coming down even as boudin's war continues to put pressure on global energy supplies. that is not good.
the point of the white house breaking the football is in it a little risky to be celebrating when americans are still suffering? >> well i find the biden administration has been very much in defense pair they've not been able to take control of the situation. he's made america energy dependent. i think that when you're looking at the fact that their focus so much is to try triangle bag saudi arabia for oil in these other countries were we here in the united states -- i'm here in texas talk about the idea ability to produce oil and make sure america doesn't need to depend on foreign resources. that's an outrage. i think that's why you are seeing the vast majority of americans -- they blame pollutant for what we've seen in the chaotic energy market but
they also blame president biden and the democrats policies were they are more focused on electric vehicle subsidies, climate change subsidies, which we know are not going to meet the immediate demands of americans. i think for the biden administration they've only hurt themselves and it's going to hurt in the midterm elections for the democrats. >> watch out when it comes to gas prices because their increasing oil production by one of the smallest margins ever. you could make the argument that that really is the end result of president biden's trip to saudi arabia. you mention you're in texas and former president donald trump is going to get a keynote address at cpac in texas this week which is why you are there. can you give us a preview of what to ask fact? >> i have to tell you something to bring all of the national
leaders under one roof is an amazing experience. these are grassroots activists. our theme this year is fire pelosi and save america. it's very clear the direction were heading in. obviously you're going to have these amazing speakers from congress ted cruz. it goes on and with a very a+ star list to really get our activism boot camp today which of course addresses where all your good night get involved making sure that republicans and conservatives one this year in the midterm election. let me tell you there's a lot of energy this can be happening coming here from cpac. they are ready. they are ready to make sure we save this country don't let a font of the hands of the
leftists in the radical agenda. >> we have to go on five seconds so i have to ask you does president trump run in 2024? >> i think yes. i think absolutely -- >> will he announce at cpac? >> it could be a new big news day. ♪ ♪ >> reportedly conducting live fire military drills. >> president biden jackie walorski end of two of her staffers all killed on wednesday. gas prices more than we were paying a year ago. in all democrats still trying to pass that $740 spe
