. if they already want the best fast-food chain already, they are now. i love chick-fil-a. i'm hungry. i got to go. to make it something. greg gutfeld takes it all from you. ♪ ♪ they want to fox news alert. another swift blow to the economy in the making echo amtrak canceling all long distance trains starting today. as a massive national rail workers strike looms. you are watching "fox & friends first" on this thursday morning carley shimkus paper >> todd: and i'm not biopic of our country's trade and industry will effectively shut down. 60,000 workers go on strike tomorrow because this move will reportedly cost an estimated $2 billion per day and you know drive inflation even higher. >> carley: ke kevin corke is lie
1:01 am
from washington because the color to tell you, this is something that will have a devastating impact on the nation's economy echo amtrak, the nation's cross-country railway system, is canceling all of its long distance trains ahead of a plant workers strike that really threatens to do damage on a scale that we have not seen in quite some time back of that announcement effectively cancels all planned trips except for those along the northeast corridor between boston and washington, d.c. the companies as our changes are all trains can reach the destination before the strike, which could begin as early as friday, and in case you're wondering, yes, we are talking about major cost because tthe strike could cost up to $2 billion per day per, we are talking about 60,000 workers plotting a walkout for better conditions. >> there's still time to get this resort, but there's only a few days left or they have a construct that is available that frankly needs to be adopted, but if this goes south and we see a
1:02 am
strike, it could be devastating for manufacturers, it could be devastating for consumers, and we just need to see this thing get done. >> got to get the thing done, so says jay timmons back of the president was all too eager to change the subject from the looming strike to electric cars. visiting the detroit auto show on wednesday. >> president biden: give you a ride to washington. it's an uber. i like it. >> he may like it, but a growing number of americans don't like the job his administration is doing with 52%, according to our latest survey, now saying the biden administration hasn't been so competent. look at that number. by the way, even with mr. biden in michigan, a pair of house democrats who are facing very tough re-elections in the upcoming midterms, they didn't even travel to their home state to be with him despite the fact that he was going to be in
1:03 am
detroit on wednesday. we're talking about representatives of dan kildee and elissa slotkin packages that they did back in d.c. to take part in official duties. congress was in session because that's the story and they're sticking to it. >> todd: they're not even trying to make real excuses anymore. that has been like we didn't want to be seen with the president. kevin corke, thank you so. is always the guy think evan brings up a crucial point. these individuals have a president visiting the state. typically, that's something that you hang your hat on, that's something that you bring to the table and you tell the voter a look, i president came to visit me. i'm going to run with that because they avoided him like the plague of one of the main reason that this president, this white house ignores the crucial problem stopping the galway. when have you seen the president at the border? never. and have you seen the president addressing the strike you might never be a day when he could have addressed the strike, could have addressed the nation, what is he doing?
1:04 am
is taking test drive >> carley: it's drew on that image of him in this really expensive orange electric vehicle on the same week that we got the inflation up and it wil once again that americans are really struggling. it's sort of -- people are calling it a split screen of what the biden administration is trying to convey and the reality of the situation at hand. on this rail strike, though, apparently, people within the cabinet are really concerned about this in the u.s. chamber of commerce, they wrote an urgent letter to congressional leadership on monday, and here's what they're saying because they say it will lead to perishable food that is gary, fruits, vegetables and spoiling at the point of origin. for approximately 12.2 million riders in 46 states, would disrupt materials and goods being delivered to factories and ports, would inhibit the transport of heating, fuel, and other important fuels and chemicals because there are only a few examples of the damage
1:05 am
of -- these are only a few examples of the damage of a wear what shut down. i didn't even realize how much the percentage of things that travel by rail across the country that affect the supply chain. last year, we saw the images of the gods in los angeles that were backlogged on how much that impacts the daily life in the supply chain of americans and also prices as well. this could very much exacerbate the issue. the red light, by the way, as friday. >> todd: with that, let us let us bring in former texas railroad commissioner, ryan sitton. ryan, thanks for being a pack of how much of this is due to joe biden is coddling of the unions you pack down mcdonough? >> that's hard to say. this is such rampant such massive impact across the country, but clearly, when you get into a situation where you have such small groups, you have two unions in this case that control so much of the nation's supply chain, that's a very
1:06 am
precarious position to be in a new car to have leadership at both the national and state levels that can make sure that we aren't held hostage by large organizations like this. >> carley: what is the likelihood that this strike happens, and if so, how does that impact people at home? >> it's hard to say with these types of situations we are in these days with current supply shortages and inflation, you have workers, where workers, who are struggling just like everybody else is and they're feeling the pinch of the economy and this administration's impact on this economy. they're feeling a desperation to go i would say these days, unfortunately, these kind of things become more likely. we've talked about the impact of your talk before i came on about some of the products that are so important to rail. one of them is called. 70% of the nation's coal is moved by rail and 20% of the nation's power is dependent on coal. we are talking about a major
1:07 am
portion of u.s. power coming from sources that are tied to real. it could have a very profound impact. to do what jumped out in my mind when you say that, all the great new deals are pushing electric cars, like the president in detroit, michigan, yesterday. where do you get the electricity to power the electric cars? you guessed it. a lot of it is from "politico" that that's the reason why all these things are interconnected and we can't distance ourselves completely from fossil fuels and coal. want to get your thoughts on this. congress does have the power to force rail workers back on the job. do you think that they end up using that power? >> if we get into a position where electricity prices continue to climb because they've already climb to 20% over the last couple of years with natural gas prices going up, with the ukraine-russia crisis, with oil and gas shortages because of lack of investment because people are afraid of what the administration is going to do, if you look at a situation where electricity is going to climb another ten, 20% because of these coal shortages, it
1:08 am
wouldn't surprise me if congress steps in and says i'm sorry, you cannot shut down the country because of this strike. >> carley: let us bring in awi federgruen, who is also joining us right now to talk about this issue. is a production and supply chain management expert. right now, we are talking about 60,000 union workers that are prepared to go on strike, including engineers and conductors, and you can't move a train forward without those two groups of people. what are t? that's something i'm not really seeing in the article than reading about this. >> i believe that demands are particularly focused on salary increases and that quite understandable. we are living in a time of escalating inflation and we are not saying that in many industries, this industry included, but this is a very
1:09 am
vital one for the entire economy, people are getting very afraid and are fearing that not only are they not advancing in their incomes, but that they're going backwards in terms of the purchasing power in very significant ways. as a consequence, people are demanding increases that aren't commensurate to the inflation that we are experiencing. >> todd: thank you for her opinion on this because this is a situation that i'm sure a lot of people, quite rightly, worth paying attention to a week ago. now they need to pay attention because even if you think what do i care about our freight system, it impacts you because some good if not most goods we are using have been transported by that got to pay attention because it's a big one. thank you. >> carley: think about. president biden is set to speak at the white house united we stand submitted a pick of the
1:10 am
administration that the summit will counter the corrosive effects of hate fueled violence on our democracy and public safety, highlight the responses of the administration and communities nationwide to these dangers and put forward a shared vision for a more united america. a recent video shows biden is doing more dividing though than uniting. watch this. >> president biden: donald trump and the maga republicans represent and extremism. the extremes that has chosen to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate and division. they don't just read in our personal rights and economic security. they're a threat to our very democracy. >> he was talking to majority of the country who agree that we have to protect our democracy. >> carley: vice president, harris is also slated to speak on behalf of condemning violence across the country. i just don't know if it's politically smart for democrats to constantly be beating the unity drum because that just
1:11 am
begging republicans to point out all of their bad behavior too, supporting the riots in 2020, calling concerned parents extremists, all republicans a threat to democracy, and unfortunately, what is happening is that the democratic party is becoming the party of intolerance before you go on any college tempest are dangers you say you support ron desantis or donald trump and see what liberal professors say to you and then come talk to me about unity and respectable >> todd: where does it start? it starts at the topic of unity for who? for democrats are united against the republican party or actual unity which involves the whole nation? i think it's clear depending on this trip. he and right now, he's attacked have the country. per copy cat with an now turn around and say nothing happened, we need to be unified because this is so simple. you know is going to brag about the summit, but he is the arsonist that starts the fire and then wants credit for putting it out. with that, the white house's

push for unity doesn't seem that go even heard from her in a while. hawaii senator mazie hirono being criticized for these shocking comments after senator lindsey graham's call for a nationwide abortion ban. because this is an all right attack on women in this country because that is how i see a pick of this is how more and more women and those that support our right to make decisions about our own body -- this is a literally, call to arms. >> todd: you know what it means when you see literally a call to arms. in the wake of violence against pro-life organizations, republicans are slamming senator hinono, one director tweeting "what exactly does crazy mazie hirono mean when she says this is a call to arms in our country? sure sounds like she is calling for violence." lindsey graham's response to critics of his bill. >> i'm proudly pro-life, and i
1:13 am
have no apology for being pro-life, and there is no bad time to defend the on-board, so if you expect me to sit on the sidelines and watch the democratic party try to pass the most radical abortion law in the history of the country, you're talking to the wrong guy. humor and pelosi have proposed a law for the entire nation that would allow abortion on demand until the point of birth. there is a seven nations on the planet that have that extreme view. china and north korea. you know what the issue is? most americans would be disgusted with a policy that allows the dismemberment of abb at 15 weeks. people are with me. if i'm not willing to talk up now, if not, when, if not me, who? i agree with the economic policies, but my friend, the pro-life community needs to speak up and we will and we will win this issue because we are right. they want democrats are wasting no time using an abortion as the rallying cry to voters ahead of

use human lives, men, women, and children, as political pawns. it is evil and inhuman because the democratic governor of illinois dynamic is to apply the bag deploying 75 national guardsmen to help deal with migrants because he also stood next to mayor lori lightfoot and demanded federal funds allotted to texas be diverted to chicago and other blue cities after receiving the small amount of migrants. >> what the governor of texas is doing is a stunt. >> it is a manufactured crisis by amber >> it's unacceptable. it shouldn't be like this, but it speaks volumes about who governor abbott is. >> new york city mayor eric adams says the city is at its wit and saying this new and unforeseen reality where we expect thousands more to arrive every week going forward, the city system is nearing its breaking point back of a little more than 10,000 migrants have been busted to new york, d.c., in chicago, yet

1:44 am
drunk, he was originally charged with intoxication manslaughter, this was splattered onto a misdemeanor. he was given ten days in jail, and in all likelihood, he was out of jail before the trial was over. when the trial was over, he was out because he had probably given credit for time served. >> carley: by the leniency for the sky? >> this is what this d.a. does. he truly believes that people should get the minimum amount of time in jail for any crimes they commit as long as he thinks it's keeping austin and travis county safe, which the statistics are showing that is not happening. >> carley: thankfully, this guy is getting deported, but you just have to wonder how the victim's family feels because she was 19 years old, she had her whole life ahead of. her name is teresa gonzalez. how do you think her family feels about a ten day sentence? >> i can tell you that one of the world think you can ever do as a police officer is give a family it death notification, so
1:45 am
i can't imagine how this family feels having now been victimized twice. they were told initially when she passed away, they were given that information, and then to find out that the person who did this basically got no punishment whatsoever. even though he is being deported, that doesn't mean he's not going to be right back in the state of texas within days after being deported. >> carley: that such a great point. there is a travis county d.a., his name is jose garza, he ran on a criminal justice reform platform to connect with that, his campaign was backed by george soros. what what are some other examples of him being lenient on criminal? >> low bail. low or no bill at all for even some of the most horrible crimes that you can imagine. murderer, rape, he's played out a first-degree murder case to 15 years in jail for first-degree murder. it's on and on. we've got cases where officers

are making arrests, booking people into jail, and there is an assistant district attorney looking at the affidavit and deciding we are not going to prosecute these people, releasing them while the officers are still writing the report because this d.a. doesn't believe in prosecuting drug crimes. what we've got in austin now is we've got a problem where our homicide rate for the third year in a row is going to be at record levels because the one i was just going to ask about crime is like under his leadership pac or you just answered that very question. we've been talking about these soft-on-crime policies for so long and how it's unfair to the victims and it leads to more crime. yet, people like this d.a. still feel like they're doing the right thing. what you think that is? >> because their true believers because they truly believe what they're doing is right, whether or not statistics show it's not, that's just what they believe. what people don't realize about this particular d.a. is he never prosecuted a crime prior to
1:47 am
becoming the district attorney. the people in travis county elected a guy with no experience as a prosecutor to be a lead prosecutor for a felony. subsequently, we've lost most of our veteran prosecutors that were in his office, so now you've got very, very little experience prosecuting these cases, and that's why they are printing a lot of these things are. >> carley: it's not just a travis county. it's a trend that we are seeing across the country. dennis farris, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> carley: you're very wel welcome. >> todd: fox was a wild fire alert nappy accruals in california fighting what has become the state's largest wildfire of the year. it already burned more than 63,000 acres since it began last week the correspondence sharing this video showing them fleeing fast spreading flames, leaving their equipment behind. as of yesterday, that fire, 20% contained, which is down from the guild's reported 25%
