"the evening edit" starts right now. ♪. elizabeth: joining us now we begin with former arkansas governor mike huckabee back with us. governor, it is always great to have you on. governor, we're about to show
6:03 pm
the viewer the biden administration the growing track record of misleading the country on inflation, jobs, the pipeline and much more. governor, the country is reopening. will more americans see how much they're being misled. what do you think? >> i think you really touched upon something of great importance. the amazing thing is that the media lets him get away with this. can you imagine if donald trump said there is no inflation when ceo's on a call said inflation is up 800% this year? pipelines, the joe biden cancels the keystone xl pipeline. oil prices shoot up. we have a disaster on our hands, and even the secretary of energy says you know those pipelines are a pretty good deal at all. this is the kind of thing we're dealing with. we don't have a crisis on the border, yet we do. even democrats are starting to say that. if you go through the list, whether pipelines, gas shortage,
6:04 pm
the border crisis, joe biden seems to be living in an alternate universe, not the one that the rest of us are seeing. it is just stunning, liz, that he gets away with it in the press other than a few folks like you, are not calling him out on it. elizabeth: you know trump was accused of major topspin. he was called out for that, right. so trump, critics say committing topspin. we're talking about something else here. it is actively misleading. saying things like the border is quote, closed. saying things like human beings are infrastructure. to the president saying that five former fed chairs support his economic growth plans. the thing is, two fed chairs are dead, two former fed chairs are dead. i don't know what five he is talking about. there were five irs commissioners saying it is about growing the irs to bring in tax revenue. that is what biden was actually referring to. not growing the economy. it is growing the irs. >> well i think you're being a
6:05 pm
little cynical. yes, two of those former fed chairman are dead but they voted in the last election so they're not completely dead. they're good democratic voters. so therefore we do have at least a voice from the past speaking from the grave saying that everything joe's doing is just peachy keen. elizabeth: okay. well i guess you're being funny there. that was a funny from governor huckabee. the thing too, the thing that americans are really paying attention to, we're showing joe biden using a tax code loop home obama tried to plug when he set up llcs and s-corps to shelter 13 million in income. didn't pay half a million dollars in payroll taxes. i want to talk to but the border, saying the border a challenge. showing border photos of empty facilities when they were moved next door. what do you think is the most critical one and the most damning one? >> well, in many ways i do think it is the border crisis because
6:06 pm
we have a human crisis there with kids being trafficked. they're being exploited and used and abused. some of the injuries to these kids, they will never recover from it. i don't like the economic problems that we face but most of us will be able to, sort of figure out how to make things work but when you're talking about little bitty children, 2 and 3 yearly children are being traumatized because they have been brought across the border by human traffickers, just left to themselves, how do you ever fix that? it is a human tragedy that hurts me the most. i'm just saddened that joe biden seems oblivious to what is happening to these children down there. elizabeth: okay, governor huckabee, thanks for joining us good to see you come back soon. elizabeth: thank you, liz. great to see you. elizabeth: joining us florida congressman byron donalds. great to have you on, congressman. where do you come down on this?
6:07 pm
let's talk about the gas shortages. critics say isolated attack on a crucial pipeline. it is bigger than that the '70s were result of the country being hostage to imported oil and carter stagflation. is there one pipeline or something bigger going on, what do you think? >> oh it is a lot bigger than just the colonial pipeline. the keystone pipeline being shut down on day one. dakota pipeline being shut down. this administration not renewing any leases on federal land. this is designed to shrink oil production in the united states so joe biden can go down the progressive line of the green new deal and pursuing renewable energies frankly not ready for prime time to power everything that the united states needs. it is not an isolated incident. this is him pushing his radical agenda on the american people, despite the fact that it will increase prices, despite the fact it will hurt the actual poor and middle income people of our country because the price of their goods will go up as a
6:08 pm
result. elizabeth: yeah. that is a tax, that is a hidden tax over gas price hikes. that is tax as well. kevin mccarthy saying biden went down to georgia and brought back carter's policies. the white house though, they're shutting downpipe lines and despite surging inflation they're not going to back away from trillions of dollars in new spending. the president did pitch his 2.25 trillion american jobs plan. critics saying not enough about cybersecurity of pipelines or cybercrime. is that true? >> there isn't. i think they need to be doing more but i've said this before, when it comes to private companies investing more in their own cybersecurity, what joe biden needs to understand you then can't also try to raise their taxes and increase regulations. all that is going to do is squeeze dollars available to them to take care of security matters. so i think he is half right, seems that ways often, half right about something, yeah they need to invest more in their cybersecurity. as a country we have the
6:09 pm
responsibility to step up as well. you can't squeeze the enterprises, get money out of them, send it here to d.c. or squeeze their operations through regulations if you want them to take care of their security needs. it doesn't make any sense. elizabeth: yeah. 85% of u.s. energy installations is in the private sector. they're doing things like nat-gas for utilities which power electric cars. it seems, you know, upside down and backwards what is going on down there, the biden team painting pipelines as evil when john kerry just said they are less, more, rather more carbon efficient than trucks and trains. final word on that? >> this administration is not following reasons or economics, following karl marx, fdr, and lbj, they are people that are dead. this president needs to get into the 21st century. he needs to come to reality when it comes to economics and energy
6:10 pm
policy and stop following the radical left. elizabeth: congressman byron donalds, thanks for joining us. it is good to see you. come back soon. >> anytime. elizabeth: let's turn to this development. protests broke out over the weekend in los angeles, boston, philadelphia, atlanta, and dearborn, michigan ends israeli airstrikes in the gaza strip. greg palkot is in israel with the very latest. reporter: week two between israel and the hamas militant group. so far on the ground there is no sign of a break in the action. take a look what we saw earlier today in central israel. we're hearing science near the city of ashdodd in the central part of israel. you are looking behind us. if our cameraman can show what they're looking at of the iron dome defense system. it is going up in the skies.
6:11 pm
a second one going up in the skies. looking to target. yet a third. make that a fourth. looking to target hamas rockets coming from gaza several miles away. in fact we watched as four rockets from gaza were intercepted by those iron dome missiles. one got through hitting a building in a city nearby injuring three people. those rockets in response to heavies israeli airstrikes throughout the day in gaza. targeting militants and their underground network. all told during the week plus of strife 10 israelis were killed. 200 in gaza, women and children included. all sides for a cease-fire. we talked to a israeli defense force official. we asked him when there would be a sign or indication of a cease-fire. he said when the rockets stop flying or at least taper off. no sign today, liz. elizabeth: thank you, greg palkot. be safe my friend. still ahead tonight, dr. marty
6:12 pm
makary on this new debate, why the biden administration sudden about-face on ending mask mandates. what science did they follow for that when dr. fauci has been saying we may need to wear masks until 2022? critics say this is garden-variety political science as the headlines turn negative against the biden team. is that true? we'll take it on next. >> what determines when? >> i'm sorry? >> what measure, are we just going to continue this forever? when does, when do we get to the point, what measure, what standard, what objective out come do we have to reach before, before americans get their liberty and freedoms back? >> you know, you're indicating liberty and freedom. i look at it as a public health measure to prevent people from dying and going to the hospital? >> you don't think americans liberties have been threatened in the last year, dr. fauci? they have been assaulted. ♪.

we had 15 days to slow the spread turned into one year of loss liberty. what measures, when metrics, what has to happen before americans get their freedoms? elizabeth: okay. remember that heated exchange between congressman jim jordan and dr. fauci just about a month ago? jim jordan what standards was dr. fauci using to keep the mask mandates and lockdowns in place. dr. fauci was talking about masks until 2022. what changed in a month's time? let's ask johns hopkins university professor of public health and fox news contributor, dr. marty makary. why this sudden about face? what changed in a month's time? >> we haven't had any good criteria put out by our public health officials tragically. they are moving the goalposts. people are getting frustrated. congressman jordan is getting frustrated. we long said 10 cases per 100,000 we're back to normal.
6:18 pm
we're there now. the vast majority of the country is there we also said less than 30,000 daily cases we're there also. dr. fauci, said 20,000, 10,000. he listen to his language you hear the word considerable, we might possibly do something if there is considerable change that general language is not helpful for a public trying to plan, businesses are trying to plan, i don't know who to blame, him or cnn and "face the nation" and all these programs that put him on non-stop. he is one doctor, doesn't basically answer any questions directly. elizabeth: doctor, to you point critics are saying they put dr. fauci up on a pedestal. if you try to ask dr. fauci questions, he would dodge and not answer, if you press him on it, people like cnn's anderson cooper saying that is disrespectful. that is called journalism. rochelle wollensky defended her
6:19 pm
own 180 on the sunday talk shays. she claimed science evolved in two weeks time. what were the sudden break throughs in two weeks we don't know about? >> you know, our public health officials need to be held accountable and journalists are supposed to do that. when dr. fauci goes on for an interview he should be asked specifically what congressman jordan asked him, that is, what are the criteria specifically? what are the numbers? what percent of the public does he estimate to have natural immunity? they have been blowing off natural immunity. let me tell you what is really happening behind the scenes, liz. these doctors are polite to each others. they don't want to offend government agencies that work on in this space, they don't want to piss off the white house. they put out things inconsistent that keeps everybody happy. they know kids should not wear masks outdoors of summer camps. these are smart doctors. they know that. they are afraid of speaking their mind because they don't want to up is the people. elizabeth: about power, grant money. overseeing reserve. about who can pull the purse
6:20 pm
strings. about who can make the decisions, right? so these players have been in place for years now, including dr. fauci. he was heavily criticized during the aids crisis basically being, speaking not in clear ways to those who were affected by the aids crisis. you know, doctor, listen to the cdc director rochelle wollensky change her tune from earlier this spring to late last week. watch this. >> i will reflect on the current feeling i have of impending doom. over the last several weeks we have seen emerging science, a growing body of evidence that if you're vaccinated you're safe and protected. elizabeth: okay. so we go from impending doom to, it is okay if you're vaccinated. the thing is americans months ago had the common sense to know what works for them in their businesses but when you watch the administration, you watch dr. fauci, you watch pundits on cnn or msnbc, they made it like
6:21 pm
americans were literally killing each other when they walked by people outside. when "the new york times" reported that researchers cannot find no case of virus being spread by people walking past each other outdoors. what is that about? >> it was clear the announcement on friday was rushed. they didn't plan the country. they didn't say they would make announcement like any other announcement. political analysts can see whether or not it is a distraction. it is clear cases were plummeting faster than anticipated and ignored natural immunity. the public was getting angry. it contradicted the very message the cdc said about vaccines. that message on friday was three months late. we should let vaccinated people go without masks three months ago. so-called evolution of science in the last two weeks, the idea they made this announcement based on emerging science, give me a break, these studies came out in february and march from
6:22 pm
europe and israel. elizabeth: yeah. now we've got targets, cvs, costco, publix, sam's club, a lot of big box stores saying you can come in if you're vaccinated without a mask. we're seeing those, those things moving in force, including home depot, kroger's walgreens, on and on, sir. so it looks like america is stepping up getting it done. your final word? >> if businesses are scrambling because the models were incorrect and our public health officials didn't prepare businesses, so now they're stuck trying to figure out what the public perception is and risk and we should had that guidance from the cdc a long time ago. elizabeth: wow. it is going to be a year for the history books. dr. marty makary thanks for joining us. you've been terrific. coming up former national security council official fred fleitz. homeland security could exploit
6:23 pm
america opening up and easing of covid restrictions and lockdowns. also why police nationwide are warning it could be a long hot summer of unrest and violence across the u.s. those stories next. >> in portland they literally set fire to police facilities inside. that is attempted murder. they literally want to burn police officers to death largese commercial real estate exchange. if i could, i'd ten-x everything. like a coffee run... don't just sell it. ten-x it. some days, you just don't have it. not my uncle, though.

♪. elizabeth: welcome back. we're coming into the bottom of the hour. you're watching the fox business network. folks, homeland security and police across the country warning about a potentially long, hut summer of violence, even terror attacks. homeland security talking about both foreign and domestic threats. joining us former national security council chief of staff and central security policy president fred fleitz. fred, when you heard that, can you break this down? what do you think it means, foreign terror attacks? >> liz, good to be here. it does mention foreign terrorist the like al qaeda and isis that may try to stage some type of events in the u.s. i'm glad that was mentioned. overall i was disappointed in the document. it seems to say the biggest threat is right-wing extremists pursuing grievances related to the election when the real threat is from antifa and black lives matter. their protest, violent protests
6:28 pm
never ended but an teach that is not even mentioned in this document. this is another effort by the biden administration to politicize security issues to gain political advantage. elizabeth: so they don't mention the two billion dollars in damage, including minority neighborhoods and minority businesses from the riots and protests starting in the spring of last year through this year? two billion dollars estimated according to the insurance industry. nothing about that. nothing about 30 people estimated dead in the riots. there is no mention of that. why the white wash of that? >> it pretends there will be continuation of the 1/6 attacks on the capital we know protests continue in portland. it said criminals could exploit court protected freedom of speech actions linked to racial justice and police use of force concerns. i'm sorry, but looting, looting cities and burning them is not a
6:29 pm
court-protected freedom of speech exercise. it reminds me of mostly peaceful nonsense we heard from the mainstream media last summer. the biden administration does not want to call out antifa and black his matter. they want to focus on right-wing extremists. there is no evidence they will do anything. elizabeth: let's stay on foreign, foreign terror threats. the authorities are citing traffic and chatter on social media and online forums warning foreign terrorists may attack as covid restrictions and lockdowns ease up. what does that mean? they're saying they're not seeing any specific threat. can you break this down? again, how is it linked to lockdowns easing up and foreign terrorists coming in. >> i don't think it is linked to the lockdowns looksenned up. i think foreign terrorists are penetrating our southern border. there is already evidence of that. jen psaki was asked about that. she said this type of thing is uncommon.
6:30 pm
that means foreign terrorists are penetrating the southern border. none of them should be. this is always a threat. we know the terrorist groups are looking for opportunities to attack in the united states. they may have more opportunities because it is easier to sneak into this country. elizabeth: you know what? you know whenever you hear white house press secretary saying terror attacks are uncommon and rare, so was 9/11. 9/11 was uncommon and rare. let's put that into context. police are ramping up their presence in new york city, dallas and chicago. they're ramping up patrols, fred. the final word, front line of cops are guys who often capture the really bad guys including terrorists, right? we know shootings and homicides are up a third about it last quarter of 2020. so can you talk to us final word on defunding the police and how when you weaken the police they can't catch the bad guys that attack minority and immigrant communities and they can't catch
6:31 pm
the bad guys like foreign terrorists, your final word? we're not being hysterical. we're stating facts. >> it's a serious security situation. i think the people in these cities will regret the day that they listened to these black lives matter and antifa extremists who lower their defenses allows extremists to attack t allows terrorists to attack. i think left pay as very high political price very soon. elizabeth: fred fleitz, good thanks for joining us. good to see you. >> vince collagnese weighing in on the sexual harrassment investigation ramming up into governor andrew cuomo in new york. four accusers testified under subpoena under oath. governor cuomo overstepping so badly he contradicted and stepped on his own new york state law that he signed which cracked down on sexual harrassment. we'll explain all of that next. >> for him to say that just
6:32 pm
because they feel uncomfortable, that is not harrassment, it is not just about feeling uncomfortable. this is arrogance to the 10th degree, arthel. i can't believe governor cuomo who has a law degree for heavens sakes, uses this as his logic. like a drunk driver running over someone, saying it wasn't my intention to run over them, therefore there is no damage. no, it is about the consequences of a person's actions, not the intentions. ♪ it's not some magical number. and it's not something we just achieve at the end. it's a feeling... of freedom to live our lives the way we intended.

6:37 pm
subpoenas are involved, because it means that the women who are involved are testifying under penalty of law. if they testify say something that is incorrect they can be held accountable for misrepresenting details. so the stakes have risen dramatically in these allegations against andrew cuomo. the women are not only testifying under subpoena but providing documents, extensive documents we're told by "the new york times" including text messages, emails and photographs. i think this scandal has dialed itself up to a new level now for andrew cuomo. elizabeth: also the information that they're handing over, you cite texts and emails they date back to early as 2013. this seems to be you know, they're making the case about abuse of power, right? so that is what it seems like. they're also, you know, the thing i want to talk to you about though, cuomo is getting more strident. he is making statements like he
6:38 pm
did last week if i make you uncomfortable that doesn't mean i'm sexually harassing you. that is what he is saying. a law he signed two years ago, saying that sexual harassment is making people feel uncomfortable, unwanted advances or sexually explicit remarks. what is up with andrew cuomo ramping up his own denials? >> he could be taken down by the very one you cited, that he signed into law. tell you as chief executive of the state that the law as written is not what sexual harassment is, that is typical andrew cuomo. he thinks at this point he can power his way through it. if he insists these are all lies and he is the only good guy as he often does, all the scandals he gets through, he thinks he can survive this thing. how many democrats have called for him to resign? even the top senators in that
6:39 pm
state, chuck schumer, kirsten gillibrand called him to resign. he is still in the job right now. this is the fight of his life, things are only getting more difficult for him as he ties to navigate this maze. elizabeth: we got the new york state assembly still investigating the coverup of nursing home deaths tied to his executive order putting patients back in and accusations that cuomo used state workers to write and edit his pandemic memoir. we have reports coming in he made five million dollars off of that. let's come back to the abuse of power. let's come back to something you said before. say he signs this law into effect in 2019 and then goes ahead and sexually harasses these women. if those allegations are proven true you're saying he could be tripped up by his own law that he signed into effect? >> welcome completely, especially because the wording of that law says yes, it is really about how the women interpret his actions.
6:40 pm
now the allegations are pretty specific. i mean among the allegations are not just the words that he used but that he actually sexually assaulted some of these women. regardless what the new york state law wording is, most people have a common understanding of unwanted sexual contact. but it is interesting, again, that now he is saying look, just because you're offended by something i said does not mean it is harrassment. yes it does, governor cuomo. that is specifically what the law that you signed in 2019 says, that could be the law that takes him down. elizabeth: you know, vince, final word, he is reports are that he is doing the bill clinton approach. fight back. fight backpack. deny, deny. that eventually fell apart for bill chin ton. where does this lead, vince, final word? >> depends on the bravery of letitia james, attorney general of new york. if she will go in there to take down as strong of a political machine as governor cuomo is
6:41 pm
operating he will be taken down by this scandal. the new york state assembly although investigating is accused of stringing along the investigation in order to protect cuomo. there are very powerful forces in new york are very dedicated to protecting establishment democrats. at this moment it stay as coin toss. elizabeth: got it. vince volume coglianese. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. elizabeth: guy reschenthaler sits on the homeland security task force. former secretary of state mike pompeo says china's covid coverup is staggering. he says the risk of bioterror from research is real. 18 scientists are not ruling out that covid-19 escaped from the wuhan lab in china. we're breaking down a lot of stories and angles on this one. >> evidence continues to accumulate despite the fact chinese communist party will not
