7:00 am
from attorneys from her office. >> we have just brought in a new class of attorneys. i think 50 back in august who will be sworn in next no. we're trying to keep up with attrition. we aren't fully staffed. we certainly are much better than we were. >> sources tell us the exodus from kim foxx's office is showing no signs of slowing down. >> bill: thanks, garrett tenney we're watching that from chicago. thank you. >> dana: welcome to a new hour of "america's newsroom." you can see the dow right now is down about 267 points. this is on news about the inflation number. it was not a good number and it will hurt people. people out there in the marketplace are figuring that out right now as the dow is down 279 as we speak. welcome to another hour of "america's newsroom." i'm dana perino. >> bill: i'm bill hemmer. good morning. the new consumer price report revealing inflation remains red hot and continues to have a pay
7:01 am
cut for american workers getting less for their money. gas prices continue to climb. federal reserve expected to continue the rate hike. what is the administration going to do to get inflation under control. gerad bernstein. good to have you on. i wish we had better news. i'm certain you wish this was better news. but at the heart of this is the core inflation number. and when it comes to core inflation, that does not include energy or food but yet that number is the highest we've seen since 1982. sir, is it time for this white house and the biden administration to pivot on its economic policies? >> no, i think what we have is the white house, the federal reserve, we are acutely aware of the pressures that this causes on american families and budgets. the president started out this morning by talking about how
7:02 am
americans are squeezed by the cost of living and they didn't need this report to remind them of it but it is certainly in the report. >> i asked you that question and you said no. so are you saying no change? are you saying no change in policy? >> let me explain why. because the policies that we're doing to help mitigate and ease price pressures are having effect. so, for example, look at the supply side of the economy. supply chains, shipping costs, air great costs are significantly down. goods are getting ship to shelf at the same level they did pre-pandemic. go into the report, the one that came out this morning and look at goods inflation. it was flat if you take out energy. now, you mentioned that energy prices went up in september. according to this month's cpi energy prices fell 2% in september >> bill: to be clear i stripped energy out of my question. i was talking about core inflation. >> it strips out energy and food.
7:03 am
when we talk about squeezing family budgets we have to talk about energy and food. and it is the case that while gas prices did start to rise at the end of september, in today's report they were down 5%. nobody is denying your fundamental point which is this is a real squeeze on family budgets. i think the question is are policymakers doing what they need to do? the president released only from the strategic reserve. i mentioned our work on the supply side. lowering medical care costs and prescription drug costs and lowering the cost of clean energy. so all of these are moving in the right direction. they take time to factor into these price indexes and we would like to see it come back quicker. >> dana: i have a couple questions here. the other day-the president told jake tapper if there is a recession it will be slight. did you or your office give him
7:04 am
some data that backs that up? >> that's a fairly common view among market analysts. what the president said was that a recession is far from inevitable and i think what he was referring to there is the strength of our job market. look, you just don't stère a recession when you have a 3 1/2% unemployment rate adding hundreds of thousands of jobs. it's inconsistent with recession. you heard janet yellen talking about strong household balance sheets, consumer spending remains solid. i think the idea. we've argued about this and you have argued there is a recession out there. it's hard to square with the facts on the ground particularly with the job market. that doesn't mean prices are okay. prices are elevated and we have to do everything we can to ease those pressures. >> dana: we interviewed a guy last week named ray. he owned a cafe called cafe raymond in pittsburgh. he can't stay afloat and really upset.
7:05 am
listen to this here. >> i've been in business almost 16 years now. i can't fight anymore to try to stay open and hire people. it has been almost three years. i have a passion for what i do but i just want to -- i don't want to do it this way no more. >> dana: he can't find workers, everything is costing way too much and having to close, leave his community and moving to montana. when you talk to somebody real like that. not people in dc or manhattan. what is your answer? >> what i started out with. the question that i think folks need to be asking the are the policymakers who are dealing with this global inflation problem -- inflation is higher in europe than here. dealing with this global inflation problem here in the u.s., are they doing what they need to do to tackle the problem? full speed ahead 100% yes. you run a restaurant, you want
7:06 am
your goods, you want your deliveries to get to you without delay. well, that's something that is actually occurring now partially due to our work on the supply side of the economy. supply chains are much less snarled. on the labor market side we did see some promising developments relative to what the gentleman was saying. the last report on job vacancies has been coming down by a million. that is significant in terms of taking some of the excess heat out of the labor market that gap between the workers that need and the labor supply. >> bill: i want to play you a clip. not from a politician. it is from a businessman jamie dimon, you know him well. we have done a 180 on energy policy in america. he has a real problem with that. roll this clip. >> in my view america should have been pumping more oil and gas and supported. we have a longer-term problem. the world is not producing enough oil and gas to make the
7:07 am
transition create security for people. america needs to play a leadership role. america is the entraining producer, not saudi arabia. >> bill: people are wondering why repeatedly. you mentioned medical cost. i was emailing edward lawrence who works at the white house. medical care services went up year-over-year 6.5%. and the american rescue plan was passed more than a year and a half ago. and yet the price was still going through the roof. whether it's energy or whether it's medical costs, people feel this if their lives. >> totally agree with you. people feel these in their lives. an important point and one we should never lose and we don't. this is where president -- these were kitchen table issues for him when he grew up. and so let's talk about both of those. when it comes to energy, it is still the case the price of gas
7:08 am
is down about $1.10 from its peak. it fell a penny today, by the way. that's important because it relates to the release of 180 million barrels from the strategic. >> bill: it was so much lower. >> the reason i raise that gets to my point. are policymakers doing what they need to do to respond to the pressures you made? yes on energy and medical costs. look at the inflation reduction act. $35 a month for insulin way below what seniors are paying now. capping prescription drug out-of-pocket at $2 thousand. you have people paying $8,009,000. huge savings. ask the question is inflation too high? yes. are policymakers doing everything they can in this white house to help bring them down? i think you have to find the answer is yes. >> dana: i don't know. we're covering this every day. people are saying 86% of them saying inflation and economy are
7:09 am
the issue but deeper than that. when you are following people who maybe they don't pay that much attention to washington but they know they are paying a lot more for gas. housing a lot more. they don't understand why all of these things aren't working for them but they do think whoever the party in power becomes a referendum on a president. not a choice between biden and trump. that might happen in 2024 and we'll have that debate then. american people feel like they're getting poorer. 47% describing their feelings as poorer. i know there is a lot of numbers but what about the heart? >> yeah, so you are asking an economist about heart. let's see what i can do with that. i get -- look, yes, i get where you are coming from. but president biden approaches this with head and with heart. as he would say i literally grew up in a family where these were
7:10 am
kitchen table issues. i know from personal discussions with him how acutely he realizes what these pressures mean to household budgets. so he has dispatched us to do everything we can. i talked about the release of oil from the strategic reserves. you said people are paying more at the pump. they are actually paying $1.10 less at the pump than mid june. now we have to continue to press on that. you have heard the president talk very much in the spirit. he has pointed out the gap between resale and wholesale prices is high. american energy companies are highly productive now. we'll soon hit the most production of oil in america's history. so he has told these companies they need to share some of those margins. give people a little breathing room at the pump. that's a fair call from this president. >> bill: the only thing we can wonder. we started whether there would be a pivot on policy and we'll find out on november 9th if
7:11 am
that's the case. you may be pushed into it. we have to go. >> the problem is look at which way that pivot goes. if the republicans want to take down inflation reduction act that's an increase in healthcare costs and increase in clean energy costs. let's watch the pivot and the policy implications. >> bill: thanks for coming on. >> dana: at least it wasn't raining or super hot this time. >> bill: we could go for an hour but i don't know if we'd get anywhere. i talked about gas prices. today it's $3.91. a month ago $3.71. i don't know how you can suggest that the price is still down even by a penny. it is not. >> dana: i find it hard to imagine they think releasing america's emergency oil reserves is a great economic policy to bring down prices. one they aren't coming down that much. we're already down at the lowest level and not an emergency -- you don't have a policy that is
7:12 am
going to change that. when dump was in office he suggested refilling the spr when oil was $24 a barrel and they said now and now what are we going to do? everything feels upside down. >> bill: i would say there is no order. >> dana: more to come on that. pennsylvania that state still a toss-up for the mid-terms. senate race heating up. fetterman refusing to reveal his medical records and dr. oz keeping his focus on crime. bryan llenas with more. >> dr. mehmet oz continues to attack democratic fetterman as being soft on crime. yesterday fetterman defended his record which includes voting to pardon ten convicted first degree murderers as a member of the board of pardons. he says he believes in mercy and redemption appeared notes it is a rare and lawful process. >> it is all unanimous from top to bottom. from everybody on the board
7:13 am
including the attorney general and a correction expert and a psychiatrist and governor and everybody signed off on it. >> bill: we have to create a semblance if there is a crime there is a consequence of the crime. we can't have the lawlessness raging in philadelphia. >> fetterman continues to balk at requests for him to release all his medical records as he recovers from a stroke suffered in may. the last time we heard from his doctors was a letter in june saying he would be fine to serve. >> if there was anything that changed or whatever, i absolutely would have updated that. other than the progress that i've made, it is evident. >> being transparent about what you are up to. you have a medical problem or hiding a radical agenda, a bigger concern that i have. >> the fetterman camp said they raised over a million dollars in 24 hours after his in-person interview with nbc. the republican super pac invests an additional $4 million to
7:14 am
boost dr. oz. he is holding a safer streets community event in philadelphia today. >> dana: that's a discussion that needs to be had. thank you. >> bill: north carolina where democrat cheri beasley is outraising republican ted budd. we're live in greensboro, north carolina and what's happening in that race there. good morning. >> good morning, bill. donald trump junior about to take the stage at a local business in the greensboro area in north carolina trying to boost ted budd in his race against cheri beasley. donald trump senior, the former president was here a few weeks ago to support budde in his race here in north carolina. this race has gotten a lot of national attention. also a lot of national dollars. groups supporting both candidates have been spending millions here intensified recently. democrats have spent heavily
7:15 am
over the past three senate races and come up short this time. republicans and conservative groups appear to be outspending democrats to try to hold onto this seat. for the national recognition budd welcomes the support of the former president. >> he endorsed me because i'm an america first candidate. he was here a couple of weeks ago. had a great event. my style is districtly north carolinian. >> beasley is trying to paid budd as indistinguishable from the former president and he is trying to tie beasley to the unpopularity of the current president. would she welcome them to campaign with her? >> the president is welcome to north carolina and it is great if he comes to see the successes and to also see our challenges. it is very important that he do that. >> another factor in this race
7:16 am
changing demographics. "wall street journal" report cites claiming the state had more people move here than any other aside from texas and florida during the pandemic. north carolina also picked up a house seat in the 2020 census. republicans say conservative retirees give them a boost. democrats say they have younger and latino. there is a percentage point -- mail-in voting ballots went out a month ago. in-person voting early starts in just a week. bill and dana, back to you. >> bill: nice to see you in north carolina. >> dana: we're keeping a close eye on the danchenko trial. was the investigation of the 2016 trump campaign based on a house of cards? new evidence that is emerging and also this. >> bill: question for you,
7:17 am
america. is cheating becoming more common? check out the fishing tournament that got busted for it and prosecutors are angling for some jail time. >> dana: very good.
7:18 am

7:22 am
>> dana: day three in the trial of danchenko. the credibility of the evidence used to investigate the 2016 trump campaign very much on the line here after explosive testimony from an f.b.i. official. david spunt is outside the courtroom. what do we know today, david? >> court kicked off a few moments ago and see what happens today. what today has to bring.
7:23 am
yesterday it was quite something in the courtroom when the special counsel himself was questioning and went after his own witness, a government witness who happens to be an analyst, counter intelligence analyst with the f.b.i. as you mentioned, the defendant in this case is a russian nationalist living in northern virginia named danchenko. he is on trial with five counts of lying to the f.b.i. primarily about his work with the steele dossier. it was full of salacious allegations about former president donald trump leading up to the 2016 election when weighs a candidate. now f.b.i. intelligence spent some of the first day and all of yesterday on the stand. he is a government witness but john durham who called him turned on him several times in an effort to go beyond this case, dana, and take the f.b.i. to task on a larger scale. he was involved looking into the potential connections between the trump team and russia back in 2016 and dubbed by analysts crossfire hurricane.
7:24 am
the allegations never materialized. yesterday durham asked him you didn't have corroboration from f.b.i. databases and other intelligence community agencies or christopher steele and it still went into a fisa application. correct, said the witness. the fisa application used to sur veil or spy on the 2016 trump campaign aide carter page. surveillance order was renewed multiple times. they sur veiled page's communications for months. durham wants to show the f.b.i. went full steam ahead spying on carter page despite no russia connection evidence. the first witness is chuck dolan. democratic analyst and p.r. executive with ties to the clintons that go back several decades. danchenko, according to the government, spoke to dolan and took political gossip from him and put it in the steele dossier
7:25 am
and used to get the fisa warrant. he said danchenko was not truthful communicating with dolan. >> dana: we all think your trench coat is amazing. you look great outside the courthouse this morning. >> old school. >> bill: thank you, david. two anglers at the center of a cheating scandal that rocked the sport fishing world last month facing charges on felony. they were indicted on several counts after the pair was caught stuffings fish with lead weights. here is the moment they were busted. >> bill: just the latest in a string of high profile scandals in professional competition ranging from chess to beauty
7:26 am
pageants. everybody is cheating. why is that? tyrus has an answer. hello, sir. >> >> as a fisherman and hobbyist that's a horrible thing to do, to stuff weights. fishing tournaments are sacred and been around in this country for hundreds of years. to do that was terrible. it seems to be an uptick. we're seeing when you across the board when you see less consequences for bad anxious we see the big ones. we see the uptick in crime but the small things like this. this is not a small thing to people in the tournament if you heard the reaction from the fans. it's a horrible way for a fish to go to be stuffed with filets of other fish and weights. you see this bolder. unlike there will be no catch and release on this one because they are holding them to the highest standard of the law,
7:27 am
which is great. >> dana: "new york post" had this. cheating erodes integrity and people's inclinations to compete and diminishes one of the greatest reason for competition. learning grace in victory and defeat. i admire gracious winners and gracious loser. >> you have to be a gracious loser and winner. when you cheat to the level they cheated it is criminal and it's great they are being charged. we even saw the poker thing where it's -- these cheaters don't go small. they don't try to win one small game. they try to do it on the grandest stage. the chess, the poker thing where you can see her adjusting the ring during the -- >> dana: then she said it was sexist. >> they invent a bad behavior on you.
7:28 am
doesn't change what you did. i'm a sexist who think you cheated. now what? >> bill: these were bass fish? >> walleye. the average for that length those fish should be been around four pounds. they were eight. it was ridiculous. it wasn't even close. >> dana: is that what tipped somebody off to check? >> those fish were around 2 1/2 feet maybe, maybe smaller. they should based on their length be around four pounds. >> dana: when it comes in at eight they were like no way. somebody who runs and they cut 30 seconds off their time. >> the boston marathon runner takes a subway and train and not sweating when he crosses the line. >> bill: thank you, tyrus. >> dana: education could be the deciding factor in some close races on election day.

>> dana: homeland security finding human smuggling along the southern border is up 500% putting up to $13 billion in the pockets of cartels. counter terrorism experts say the groups are on par with isis and al qaeda. but the biden administration has yet to designate them as a terrorist organization. will they? let's turn to aishah hosni with more on the very serious and growing threat to national security. hi, aishah. >> good morning. that's the big question. will they finally do this? because calls are growing for u.s. officials to do just that. now today the u.s. and mexico will announce a pretty big
7:35 am
bilateral inforcement operation against human smuggling organizations. but again some want the u.s. to take this a step further and really designate those cartels as terrorist organizations. now today's big meeting between u.s. officials and mexican officials comes on the heels of a big enforcement announcement last night by the department of homeland security when it comes to venezuelans. now if venezuelans entering the united states between points of entry without authorization they will be sent back to mexico. a big change. secretary mayorkas saying lawful entry is the only way. of course, we know and you know at home that hasn't been the case for quite some time. dhs investigation shows a 500% increase in human smuggling at our southern border over just the last six months. and they estimate the mexican cartels are making $13 billion a
7:36 am
year from human smuggling alone. that is a 2500% increase since 2018. >> i do expect the challenge of migration in our hemisphere to feature in these discussions just as they were a feature of our engagement in lima last week. as you know, the secretary in lima took part in a ministerial focused on migration and focused on follow-up from summit of the americas. >> the other issue is fentanyl. counter terrorism experts do believe this big business of smuggling fentanyl across the southern border is a threat to america's national security. in fact, they would put the cartels on par with isis, al qaeda. the biden administration again has yet to designate these organizations as terrorist groups. and we are hoping this is going to come up with today's meeting with secretary blinken and secretary mayorkas that they
7:37 am
might be able to address this issue. dana. >> dana: aishah hosni at the state department. thank you. bill. >> bill: thank you, dana. 26 days and counting. two years ago the state of virginia, the presidentall level. joe biden beat donald trump in the state of virginia by ten points, all right? now we are what, two years removed from that but last year in that same state glenn youngkin came out of nowhere and ran the table on terry mccauliffe and flipped the state. a 12 point swing. he talked about education a lot and parents' rights. we found the poll from the "washington post" and abc and rank the nipumber of americans. look where education in schools in popping up? 77%. glenn youngkin, good morning and thank you for your time. nice to see you today. we might get interrupted by
7:38 am
breaking news but we'll get inasmuch as we can here. tiffany smiley is running for senate in the state of washington, republican. republicans haven't seen a statewide candidate win in washington state in 21 years. she told us we are the party for the parents. now, that worked for you a year ago. will it work again in 26 days? >> absolutely it will. i continue to hear it from virginians and as i've been able to campaign for a number of governors around the country if it if not the top issue along with inflation and economy. what we've seen time and time again is bureaucrats and politicians from the left liberal democrats trying to push parents out of their children's's lives and parents, not republicans, not just moderates but all parents across party lines are standing up and saying we won't have it anymore. i think this is a top issue for republicans and a winning issue
7:39 am
for republicans and by the way, not just in 2022 but as we look forward to future elections, we are going to see republican education plans be the winning plan and democrats lose their historic advantage in education. >> dana: we recently talked to some people working on bringing back phonics to elementary school education to try to help kids learn how to read. those numbers are way down. you see the sat and act scores are down and the world university editor said the data is clear, america can no longer take for granted the dominance of world higher education research. china is leading the challenge. if current trends remain the same we'd see china overtaking the u.s. in the coming years. from pre-school through college, we are doing worse than we were before. how urgent is it that people try to pay attention to this and do something about it? >> this is a huge wake-up call
7:40 am
for america. we answered it in virginia last year. we passed the virginia literacy act to bring the science of reading, phonics, back into our school system for k-three and invested a record amount in education and working with higher ed. and k-12 to raise standards and expectations. if we don't wake up and understand there has been a massive decline in the priority of excellence in our education system, we are going to watch china not only try to beat us in education, but beat us in their goal to dominate the world at america's expense. this is a competition and we have to wake up and compete. at the heart of it is our children, their education, and oh by the way the future of america to deliver on innovation, on economic revival, and finally, on recognizing that if we don't grab hold of this now, we are going to give away our greatest advantage and that's been in education. >> bill: your approval rating in
7:41 am
virginia is 55%. these days that's pretty good. you've taken that on the road for a number of republicans stumping for them trying to help them win. on the screen we'll show our viewers georgia, nevada, michigan, maine, do we have it? kansas. new mexico. this is where it gets interesting. arizona for karrie lake. the oregon state is intreeing. republicans feel like they have a chance. why do you think she can win? a three-way race? >> what voters are recognizing is that republican governors are focusing on those most important kitchen table concerns with common sense solutions. of course, democrats have done a terrible job managing their states out of the pandemic. on top of that ignoring the kitchen table corns. in oregon it is homelessness, crime, education and the
7:42 am
economy. and that's what christine is focused on and why she'll win. republican governors have led extraordinarily well and republican candidates who are trying to unseat incumbent democrat governors are focused on economy, inflation, crime and education and the democrats continue to focus on the wrong issues. >> dana: how important is it to a party, republican or democrat, to have a majority of states be led by that party? let's say the republicans in this instance, how important is it to the republican party to have governors in place going into a presidential election cycle? >> i think it's incredibly important but what's more important is the fact that republican governors have done a better job. i personally think that every state deserves a republican governor. that's why i'm working hard in order to help get a bunch elected. it is also why we're working hard in virginia to make sure we flip a number of our
7:43 am
congressional seats. we're working hard in our second, seventh and 10th. i have said the road to the majority in our congress comes through virginia. these are three really great congressional seats that i think we can flip as well. >> bill: we'll see if you are right early in the night. virginia tends to count fast and we have all three of those races on our radar and see how they turn out. thank you for your time today and hope to have you back soon. >> dana: thank you. >> thank you all for having me. >> bill: glenn youngkin. thank you. red hot inflation taking a bite out of your next meal at a restaurant. you can feel it. rising food costs are hurting local business owners who want to keep the doors open and workers on the job. the history buff who identified a long lost boat and the role it played in the second world war will join us coming up. >> violent fighting and troops go to shore on the sicilian beaches. most of the island was seized in a rapid advance.
