6:03 pm
♪. elizabeth: thanks for joining us. you're watching the fox business network. start with your money. u.s. markets down again today led by a tech selloff as wall street watches for tomorrow big january jobs report. estimates just 150,000 jobs added. expected to be the worst report since december of 2020, when the economy lost jobs. now look at this. oil did top $90 a barrel today for the first time in more than seven years. let's get to this. president biden in new york city today, demanding congress approve half a billion dollars in more government spending to stop rising crime. he had other ideas as well. critics are saying he said nothing about stopping d.a.s downgrading felonies into misdemeanors in the middle of a crime wave in order to reduce incarcerations. small businesses are getting hit hard, reportedly in low income neighborhoods that need small businesses now. madison alworth has more. reporter: good evening, liz. yes the president was here
6:04 pm
today, he met with eric adams the mayor of new york city, his focus on gun reform laws. take a listen. >> there is no violation of the second amendment right. we talk like there is no amendment that is absolute. when the amendment was passed it didn't say anybody can own a gun any kind of gun or any kind of weapon. reporter: businesses here that gun violence is only part of the problem. they say the real problem is that the people who are committing crimes aren't being held accountable. business owners tell me crimes, the current policies that are soft on crime are doing nothing to help them. >> we're not criminals. we're trying to work, trying to make a living and but these regulations are protecting criminals and what are, can make some policy that protects us. >> if you're not prosecuting crimes to what they are, you
6:05 pm
sugarcoat it, make a lower offense, what happens you enable the criminal. reporter: you know, liz, i've been talking to business owners across the city for the past couple weeks. i heard the same thing from all of those small business owners. they say something needs to change. right now potential customers are afraid to walk around the streets and their staffs, they are afraid for their safety when they show up to work so it is really not just the gun problem. it is and all over crime problem. liz? elizabeth: that is a great story. madison alworth, great reporting there. thanks for joining us. let's bring on to the show congressman mike johnson from house armed services and from the fraternal order of police, national vice president, joe grimaldi. thanks for joining us. congressman, your reaction to this story. the president says more spending will fix this, nothing about progressive d.a.'s normalizing felonies and low to no cash bail policies. how come he didn't mention that, congressman? >> that is a great question. that is absolutely outrageous.
6:06 pm
the president said we need gun reform. we don't need that. we need reform of radical district attorneys. as you said progressives d.a.s with crazy policies won't reduce crime. reducing felonies to misdemeanors. they're weakening bail policies and leads to more crime. this is not rocket scientist. an 8th grade civics student can figure this out. the open border policies. that is a big root cause for all these problems because dangerous people are coming across the border, shipped around the count by planes and buses to neighborhood near you. fentanyl is flooding the border. leading to street crimes and gangs and everything else. the president, his party's policies, their dangerous rhetoric about defunding the police that led to all of this. that is the root causes that needs to be addressed and reversed. elizabeth: we hear you, congressman. the president said he is against defunding the police. he wants more money. >> sure. elizabeth: joe, how would you fix it? we hear you congressman.
6:07 pm
joe, how would you stop this? see data on the crime going across the country. they have had it. carjackings up six-fold nationwide. murders up 20% in 2020. dozen cities, new homicide records. what is the fix? how do you stop it? >> the fix -- >> police officers delivered historic crime reduction in the 20 years prior to the spike in crime the last two years. we done it before. we can do it again. actually enforce the rule of law. we have to make sure we're actually prosecuting criminals when they commit crimes. we need to vehemently prosecute violent crime. if someone uses a gun in a crime, we should seek the maximum, not giving them a slap on the wrist, letting them back out. give them a pr bond where they pinky promise to show up to court. when you embrace broken windows theory you fix crime in the communities so everybody feels safe. we need to enforce and fund our local police departments to
6:08 pm
accomplish that mission because everybody deserves to live in a safe community. elizabeth: to joe's point, everybody is making great points, congressman, it is not rocket science, the answers are right there. when you look at newark police officers they didn't fire a single shot during 2020. didn't pay a dime to settle police brutality cases, they took off 1500 illegal hot guns starting in 2020. you see the flattudes and rhett rhetoric. mistaking activity for achievement that government spending will fix it, congressman. no. what joe is saying, what police officers tell us. that is the fix. what do you say? >> that is exactly right. joe's right. we appreciate his passion. the fraternal order of police, law enforcement heroes across the country this, is very difficult time to be on the streets. morale is low, personnel is down as a result of these policies, of their dangerous rhetoric
6:09 pm
defunding the police. it is great that president biden sees the light not wanting to defund the police but doesn't care what his party has been saying, acting on consistently the last two years. this is the results. this is foreseeable. it was totally preventable. we can prevent it doing what joe suggested. get back to basics. have real policing, having a aggressive prosecution of time. that will deter more of this. we better do it quickly. it is getting out of control. elizabeth: it feels like the president kicked the can down the road, joe, to the congressman's point. >> of course. elizabeth: hitting foreign policy. china ridiculing rising crime in the u.s. look at the tweet of president of el salvador. he is saying the u.s. is getting slammed from within. why aren't u.s. authorities and media not commenting more on the destruction of u.s. cities? it is not just about money. it is about morale, plunging morale, right? and so when you see it hitting foreign policy, even democrats
6:10 pm
like the san francisco mayor, london breed saying the d.a. chesa boudin is failing black people, this is wakeup call ringing off the hook for more than a year. >> it is. joe. elizabeth: joe, take it. go ahead, joe. >> i mean other countries are laughing at us because our crime rate is through the roof. as you mentioned we had 16 u.s. cities experience the highest murder rate ever. what we really want to hear from every politician, senators, president, representatives, local officials, start holding rogue d.a.'s accountable. i want everyone to speak out against the violence against police officers, condemn it. honestly our hearts are bleeding for the loss of our officers. we had 32 officers shot last month, a 6% increase over last year which was historic year for police officers being shot. 67%. ambush attacks are up 700%.
6:11 pm
this is not sustainable path. you know who are harmed the most? black and brown communities in our urban communities. guess what, if we don't have public safety, grocery stores won't move in, food deserts, can't get best teachers to work in the environments because they don't feel safe. it has to stop with everybody with the same opportunity. elizabeth: guess what? you destroy the tax base, everybody's taxes go up. is the president, congressman, is he being again taking the position of renouncing his 1994 tough on crime bill that he wrote in 1994? he was slammed for that because it incarcerated, blamed for incarcerating a lot of minorities. by the way heather macdonald of manhattan institute us saying it could be 10,000 black people and minorities killed last year. so is the president kind of still in that position of you know being, having been criticized for that 1994 crime bill? what do you say, congressman? >> what we believe is that he made commitments to all these
6:12 pm
radical progressives groups in order to get the nomination, to be able to be elected president which was his life's goal, right? he is there now. he is not driving the train. i think these activist groups are, interest groups, people in his ear all the time that led to all of this chaos. we need the president of the united states to stand up and lead. we need him to go back to the apparent vision he had in the '90s, when he cared about crime in our communities. it is too late for this. we have got to get on point. elizabeth: got it. >> the president has to address the root causes as you said. that is the problem. elizabeth: congressman mike johnson, joe grimaldi, both will be back on soon. that was a great interview. great to have you on. deeper dive into the analysis of two dozen studies that showed lockdowns didn't work causing chaos in the economy. who else said it wouldn't work? the w.h.o. back in 2006. why was that ignored? calls growing for the white house to say time for shutdowns is over. congressman kevin brady joins us

♪. elizabeth: senate banking republicans warning that president biden's latest federal reserve nominee wants to reimagine the entire u.s. financial system away from oil and gas right when tomorrow's jobs report is potentially worse in a year potentially showing the economy is in reverse. hillary vaughn from washington. reporter: liz, sarah raskin is chair for vice president ad the federal reserve and some republicans have reservations about her because of her outspoken comments about using the role of the fed to combat climate change raskin had to defend a "new york times" op-ed she wrote last spring where she criticized the fed using its coffers to give covid relief to the oil and gas industry but raskin's lucrative business dealings in the past are drawing speculation, particularly her involvement in a fintech company, reserve trust, that
6:18 pm
managed to secure a rare and highly sought-after access to the fed's payment system after its first application was rejected. a business relationship that ended with raskin walking away with a $1.5 million stock payout. >> but after the denial you called the federal reserve and reserve trust receives a fed master account, the only state chartered trust company in the country to get one. and you walk away with a million 1/2 dollars. something doesn't smell right with the way this played out. reporter: that big payday was not properly reported by her husband congressman jamie raskin who broke conflict of interest laws for members of congress and spouses that call for prompt reporting of stock transactions. congressman raskin said the delay in reporting was because of his son's passing.
6:19 pm
liz? elizabeth: hillary vaughn, great reporting there. thanks for coming on the show. congressman kevin brady from house ways and means and the house republican study committee. your reaction to that report. that is going on for that nominee from the fed talking about that we'll have a really bad jobs report tomorrow. what do you think of all this. >> this is a big mistake for the fed to go outside of its mandate to focus on climate change, specifically trying to drive u.s. oil and gas industries an jobs out of america, especially at a time where inflation is raging, gas prices are driving up the damage that is being done for families and truth of the matter, it simply isn't their business or their mandate. we expect tomorrow there could be negative job growth reflected in part because we had a lot of people out sick, calling in sick during the reporting period last month but also because you know the last gdp report, while the
6:20 pm
headline number looked good, bottom line was we still have, there is some red flags. big raise in inflation, huge drop in real disposable income. that damages the economy. if you take out just inventories, growth was less than 2% last quarter. so i think we'll have volatile and disappointing months because job growth slowed over the last five months. elizabeth: congressman, calls are growing for white house and elected officials to step up to say enough with the pandemic shutdowns. that phase is over after two years. people want to get back to normal. you know about, we reported that new johns hopkins analysis of two dozen studies, lockdowns failed. 0.2% drop in covid deaths? the w.h.o. warned in 2006 don't do this. lockdowns do not, the w.h.o. said lockdowns did not work in the 1918 pandemic. it didn't stop it. it damaged people's livelihoods,
6:21 pm
it ruined american lives to lock down. so we now have a 43% drop in covid cases over the last two weeks. deaths are still up but deaths are lagging behind the, deaths are always a lagging number. so will the white house step up and say, the pandemic phase shutdown is over? >> so the short answer is of course they won't. for them this is a political bludgeon on the american people and they don't want to understand the, just like at the border, just like the other crises, they don't understand just how damaging it is. thankfully i come from texas. we're one of the early states to open up. our economy recovered much stronger than others. certainly that freedom, we saved jobs. i'm convinced saved lives by opening up. it wasn't easy but we showed you could do it. our kids were back in school. so, boy, the proof is there, but no, i don't think this white house gets it nor do they want to. elizabeth: so reports that even
6:22 pm
the w.h.o. sees, maybe the end of the pandemic in europe but there was a backlash against those who said don't do lockdowns. watch those who said do the shutdowns, do the lockdowns, including then candidate biden. watch this. >> statewide lockdowns that so many americans lived under for months were intended to buy us time to get our act together. >> when you have an acute situation extraordinary number of cases the answer to that is really close things down, to go back to our basic, to shut things down, to flatten the curve. >> the fact that we shut down when we did and the rest of the world did, has saved hundreds of millions of infections and millions of lives. elizabeth: well there is no proof of that, congressman, right? >> there isn't. elizabeth: there was never any proof of what dr. fauci just said and it caused $35 trillion in worldwide economic destruction, congressman, kevin brady, your word on this. >> the science proved them wrong. unfortunately i work here in the
6:23 pm
capitol. we're still locked down in the capitol in our offices. so even here right under the white house's nose they're still practicing political science and it is damaging. elizabeth: congressman kevin brady, pleasure to have you on. >> good to see you, liz. elizabeth: okay. good to see you too. the latest dr. fauci flip-flop coming up. he now says yes, prove the origins of the pandemic. he strenuously denied could have leaked from a lab in china. because he now faces new pressure from house republicans who want scientists to testify that dr. fauci possibly got them to change their story on that? guess who said, that yeah, it may have leaked out of a lab in china? the u.s. state department last year. first we have the new report, more information surfacing about a classified email from a top obama state department official in 2016 urging someone, anyone in d.c. and washington, warn then vice president biden about hunter biden's business dealings in ukraine, could hurt u.s.

elizabeth: ford o'connell. i know you're fired up about this. i want you to listen to the sound. about elected officials, good to see you. elected officials caught not wearing masks inside of a not ordering everybody to do it. california governor gavin newsom i was drinking a glass the water at the rams niners game. it was longer than that. listen to los angeles mayor garcetti and his excuse. he claimed he was holding his breath when he took off his mask. >> i wore the mask for entire game. when people ask for post graph i put it hire. zero percent chance of infection. i will take responsibility, even in photographs people i'm holding my breath literally for two seconds i will do that. elizabeth: do you believe that?
6:38 pm
>> garcetti's i was holding my breath excuse has to be the lamest excuse from a sitting politician since bill clinton said i didn't inhale. this is a pattern in california where garcetti and newsom don't think they can follow the rules that they set down. what i suggested los angelinos and californians shouldn't have to follow the rules either. we can talk all day about the covid hypocrisy, time to free californians particular on the super bowl horizon. elizabeth: to your point nobody will listen to government officials don't even comply with their own mandates and rules. now you see students in the state of virginia getting suspended for not wearing masks in schools. we got school official in virginia saying, if a student comes into a school without a mask on, we're going to try to charge them get them charged with trespassing. take a listen to this parent in loudon county. the daughter faces suspension

over not wearing masks. watch this. >> my brave, freedom, loving patriot daughters, many other kids around the state are actually excited today to receive a suspension from this kind after woke school system. we consider it a badge of honor. if it means liberty and freedom reined by standing up against progressive policies we'll be glad to do that. elizabeth: listen, so now the new frontier is about masks in schools. listen, people understand about being safe, ford. people get it, right? we want our children to be safe but the science is science is saying wearing masks in schools isn't safe. look. >> covid-19 has made politicians and administrators power drunk and this is a prime example in loudon county, virginia. to your point, e mask, there is scant evidence forced masking protects students. there is a mountain of evidence that suggest it impedes learning, stunts development and causes all sorts of emotional

disorders. what i find absolutely amazing in virginia and these seven school districts is, they are not only defying the law, they are actually hurting the kids and not following the science, and for what? because glenn youngkin the governor of commonwealth of virginia? you got to be kidding me. stop hurting kids. elizabeth: he saying make it optional, up to the parent to decide. what is going on with the tolerant so-called tolerant now intolerant left? what is with all the bullying? what is with the lack of debate and discussion? why do they get to shut it down including about vaccines? we're seeing increasing studies showing harm of vaccines for children. it is "jama" running those studies. it is lancet running those studies. we're seeing that on boosters and more. why do they get to be the final word, bully everybody, shut them down with no debate, no discussion, final word? >> they believe they can backdoor the first amendment, because they think they're absolutely right when the science says they're wrong. that is the big problem.

dr. fauci, seems like he is going back and forth. seems he backs probes into the origin of the pandemic. good to see you, congressman. dr. fauci strenuously denied it could leak from the lab in china, now he wants a probe? why is he for a probe now? >> we continue to see flip-flops. for the last two years we've been told to follow the medical science, seems like dr. fauci is following the political science. we need to get to the answer of this. for the last two years our lives have been turned upside down by a global pandemic. everyone, every american deserves to know the origins of this, so we can prevent it from ever happening again. elizabeth: you know faces renewed pressure from house republicans led by you know, james fullmer, steve scalise and jim jordan. when they basically say he and former nih director francis collins potentially pressured seven scientists who initially warned in early 2020, yeah, it may have leaked from a lab in

china, there is no way this thing could have evolved so rapidly like it did in nature. 48 hours later those scientists changed their position. the virus yet to be found in nature. is he facing pressure, why he is changing his tune again? >> you have to ask like him, originally he followed the medical science, now he is following the political science. we need to continue to put pressure on the administration, on dr. fauci to get to the answer of this. everyone deserves to know where this came from because we have to prevent it from ever happening again. we continue to see flip-flops from this administration as it relates to covid policy this, is nothing new. it is frustrating to myself. it is frustrating to all americans. elizabeth: look at the state department fact sheet. it came out of the u.s. embassy in all places in the republic of georgia last year, january 2021, says china's wuhan lab has published record of conducting gain of function research to
6:48 pm
create chimeric viruses in laboratories. that embassy, the state department, warned, yeah, this could have leaked. so the state department was saying this. so why was dr. fauci so strenuously against and opposed to idea that it could have leaked? is it because nih is funding dangerous gain of function research out of laboratories since 2003? >> there is a ton of questions, as in the research being done by our federal government, in particular, as it relates to gain of function research outside the united states at laboratories all around the world. these are the questions that we've been asking and we demand and we need to get answers to. the american people deserve to know the answer. we can never allow what has occurred, over the last two years that is upended the united states way of life to ever occur again. we absolutely -- elizabeth: hear you on holding them accountable.

the american public. he knows exactly what taking place, he knows he's positivists, he knows the root cause is because he did away with very good policies and programs of the trump administration under the guise of political expediency. he knows catch and release is driving all of these drug smugglers being able to generate profit never seen before. he understands the problem but trying to deflect, like to the american public so they don't hold him responsible for what's currently happening on the border. liz: house republicans led by lance gooden out with a new plan to stop federal contracts and grants to nongovernment organizations who assist human trafficking and smugglers and make money off illegal border crossing. if they could lose their status, ron desantis is moving against us, to. we don't know about will work but would make some part of
