look at the new book that came out. brian: mark levin would sue me. his book is out. he is here. yeah, it's today. sharyl attkisson one of the finest investigators anywhere and eric bolling i have seen him in the halls. this is going to be a big huge book party monday night did. anyone survive. ainsley: don't take that through tsa. steve: books come out on tuesday. today is tuesday. we have a bunch of people with brand new books. thanks for joining us on this very busy and rainy day from new york city. ainsley: we have so much to talk about. the first thing we are going to talk about this morning is the travel ban because the u.s. supreme court has decided to take up that case. they are going to hear the case in the fall and allow parts of it to go ahead and take place now such as the 90 day ban that starts on thursday. people entering from the six muslim majority countries, they are not going to be allowed to come into the country unless they have family ties here, work obligations, or educational commitments.
3:03 am
also allow 120-day ban on refugees. brian: the supreme court did what we understand other courts did for other presidents. they didn't look at campaign rhetoric. they didn't look at campaign talk or interviews. they actually looked at the substance of the proposal that was presented to them. they saw the problem with what the lower courts did. they saw the different reasons which it was rejected and said by nine supreme court justices said let's go. we will view it in october but let's go ahead and put it into play now. steve: by their effort yesterday where it was unanimous, essentially the supreme court said we don't know what they were doing at the fourth circuit or the ninth circuit, it looks like trump will see a triumph later this year. but then again it could be moot because they could actually finish the review before it is actually taken up and ruled on by the supreme court. the president himself yesterday, you know he is a tweeter. and he tweeted this out. very grateful for the 9-0 decision from the u.s. supreme court. we must keep america safe.
3:04 am
he also tweeted great day for america's future, security and safety, cuters at the is i of the u.s. supreme court. i will keep fighting for the american people and win. brian: meanwhile, those six nations were pointed out by president obama as extreme -- reasons while. steve: he selected them. absolutely. that's why the justice department in the flajly days in the trump administration felt confident if we put this list together, you know, democrats are going to be okay with it because this is from president obama's department of justice. ainsley: based on terrorism in these countries. let's talk about kate's law and sanctuary defunding. kate steinle was killed walking on the pier in san francisco with her father by illegal deported numerous times. steve: five. ainsley: kate's law you get five years in prison if you are illegal immigrant deported and coming back into the country there is a picture of
3:05 am
kate steinle. brian: going to use the momentum he got from the travel ban. a major reason to have a bounce in your step at the white house. had major share of set backs with kate's law. this reaffirms what the president has said all along. is he going to crack down on illegal criminal immigrants who were here. bill o'reilly is the one who pushed forward and saying listen you have got to do. this it's to stop the next kate steinle. got to stop it in its tracks. steve: there is another law as well in addition as the president uses the momentum he is building on capitol hill. sarah and grandgrant's law. they were both killed by drunk illegal immigrants. ainsley: she just graduate you had the day before with a 4.0. her parents had so many plans for her life. steve: ensure criminal illegal aliens convicted of drunk driving and other criminal

3:07 am
deficit between 2017 and 20026. when it comes to the premiums, they will go 10% higher in 2019 but drop 30% in 2020. steve: if you believe the cbo estimates. they have been historically really wrong. for instance back in 2013. they were estimating in the year 2017, this year we are in right now, there would be 25 million people on obama obamacare. do you know how many they there are? 10 million. they are off by 15 million people. ainsley: some senators say they are going to look at the cbo report before they make a decision. it's not something necessarily set in stone. you can't predict the future. steve: when you hear the 22 million, it's like wow, that's a lot of people with no healthcare, right? well, this is an opportunities for the people on the political left to use that number as a gigantic sledge hammer against the republicans who are thinking about voting on it. watch this right here from yesterday.
3:08 am
>> i know this is a sensitive issue. i'm going to raise it. and that is that the horrible and unspeakable truth is that if this legislation were to pass, thousands of our fellow americans are every single year will die. >> we do know that the -- many more people, millions, hundreds of thousands of people will die if this bill passes. >> 1 to 2,000 people will die if you cut 750,000 people from medicaid. so that means you're killing 1 to 2,000 -- killing them. brian: i have here that everyone will die. we are all going to die. i will add this, we asked that to speaker ryan directly. speaker ryan will tackle that 22 million directly. one thing also came across, the ama not happy with it. the aarp is not happy with it but anthem came out and
3:09 am
endorsed. anthem healthcare, blue cross, blue shield came out and endorsed the plan right after the cbo came out and scored it. steve: that's huge. the ama came out and said we don't like it. there is a problem for mitch mcconnell. you can pull a rabbit out of the hat. we will see what happens. right now it appears it's not going anywhere. three republican senators saying no on the motion to proceed. you need that to get everybody on the train and start the votvote-o owe rama. >> no middle class family can afford a nursing home by themselves. if president trump keeps listening to paul ryan, we will all be on the street or something even worse. brian: this ad is back. that is one of the questions i asked the speaker yesterday in light of what happened with
3:10 am
steve scalise and company where we heard about the violence everywhere from what's happening in central park and some comedians. is this appropriate now? >> i think you saw what democrats are doing. a paul ryan lookalike throwing a granny off a cliff. what is your reaction? can you really laugh that off at this point? >> oh yeah. i'm so used to this at this point. the left is out of gas. they decided resist, resist, resist. they want government run healthcare. it's collapsing while we speak. it's not working. we are replacing it with a law that will actually work. anthem blue cross blue shield said you pass this law it you will stabilize the market and brings down prices and more plans. brian: i said i would do the interview if i don't appear on camera. he agreed to it. steve: we heard your voice. the throwing granny off the cliff thing is all about medicaid. democrats are saying paul ryan and mitch mcconnell are cutting $800 billion from
3:11 am
medicaid and that's why the democrats say everybody is going to die. ainsley: house had a bill and senate had a bill. the senate bill is better one. more deficit savings and better enrollment they say. good job on the interview. we will see the rest of it? brian: no, that's it. sorry, i didn't tape the rest. i will. 6:30. jillian: looking forward to it. let's start off with a fox news alert now. the white house vowing syria will pay a heavy price if it carries out another chemical attack. the trump administration warning the assad regime could be planning a new mass murder including killing innocent children, saying there is evidence similar to what took place before the massacre earlier this year. the warning coming hours before president trump is set to meet with the french president ohio also promised retaliation if the assad regime uses chemical weapons. a manhunt underway for a team of crooks. take a look at this video. behind this brutal beat down

eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop.
3:15 am
seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

3:18 am
michael bloomberg as a republican. that's not the case. he was democrat his whole life. recall in the dnc last summer he was the hatchet man for hillary clinton and the democratic party. he is somebody who is part of the democratic resist movement and now he is putting his money where his mouth is. brian: not on everything. he has always been tough on terror and strong on law enforcement. when it comes to guns and green energy, he is off the hook left. so, for example, tell me about this contest. >> right. so this is designed to have cities who may not want to follow the trump administration's policy on everything from climate change to sanctuary cities. is he trying to infuse them with cash so they wouldn't be penalized. steve: in other words, for instance, we were talking about kate's law. it looks like the president is going to push with that this week because he has momentum on capitol hill. michael bloomberg is saying don't worry if you are going to lose the federal money you can actually win some of this money if you go around the federal government. >> let's not forget when he was mayor of new york city he was not big on people bypassing his policy.
3:19 am
one of the chief criticisms of him was that he used fines and fees and violations. steve: soda tax. >> he would give business owner as thousand dollar violation for not having the employees must wash hand signs. that was his way balancing the budget. did he not tolerate people not abiding to his policy but this is what is he doing to the trump administration. brian: gun movement doing nothing. gun violence you think there might be momentum there when it comes to this green movement. there is a sense that he will put the money up and he will follow through, doesn't sense he will change anything. >> people have to remember that he portrays himself as this innocent outsider. he really is one of the biggest special interest in politics. is he underwriting anti-second amendment lobby. out there on environmental causes. he spent more money than any other human in the history of the world to win elective office. brian: three times. >> 105 million last time. steve: what's been the
3:20 am
reaction of other mainstream media outlets. >> that's been the question. imagine if this was a conservative billionaire encouraging cities or big cormingses tcorporation bypass. no other media outlets would be condon condoning it. they would be blessing it. brian: 55% chance donald trump will win re-election. by the way you should give him a chance he actually won the election. steve: scare people. he is going to be around for another seven years. >> joe borelli, thank you. >> thank you, guys. brian: a question many have asked about ivanka trump. >> i remember when your dad was running there was talk, many people wanted you to be his vice president. [laughter] >> i don't know about that. ainsley: any political future with you running for office? brian: what did she say? stick around. steve: bad news for minimum wage backers. they just found out that that actually cost jobs. the more you make, the fewer

president? >> she thinks it's really cool but she likes to remind him frequently that god is still much more powerful.

3:28 am
preparing it with me. it's a lot of fun. ainsley: we have the fourth of july in a few days. >> yes. ainsley: i wanted to ask you what does it mean to be an american? why are you a proud american? >> i am proud on so many levels and really traveling this country has made me even more of a proud american today than at any other point in my life. you see the spirit, the tenacity. you see the sacrifice you meet with soldiers and sailors and their families and think about all the things they are doing to ensure that the america we know remains true and can continue on. i also think about the opportunity of achieving the american dream and fulfilling one's potential. there is no country in the world where there is more opportunity to do that than right here in america. what this administration is really committed to and i'm committed to is removing any barriers that stand between people and fulfilling their dreams and making sure that america is always a place
3:29 am
where the sky is the limit and you can achieve the american dream. ainsley: i remember when your dad was running there was talk, many people wanted you to be his vice president. >> i don't know about that. ainsley: any political future with running for office? >> i'm not a very political person. that sounds like a strange thing to say. you know, i really an sort of an idealist. i care about the issues. i care about solutions. and i actually try to avoid getting drawn into politics. and, you know, i like to be able tone gauge with people on all sides of issues. privately and candidly and hopefully that outreach and that engagement will allow me to be helpful in putting forth some new ideas. i care more about the country than politics. so, but, you know, so i don't think politics is in my future. steve: i've got news for her, she is in it right now. brian: policy advisor. that's what condoleezza rice.
3:30 am
that's the same way secretary of state condoleezza rice answered that same question. want to run for office? no, i want to get things done. i don't want to be at a podium or rally. ainsley: whole time when we were talking we looked over. if you haven't been there, i didn't know the landscape of the white house like you guys probably did, but when you walk out of those doors and to our right you could see the oval office, it's on the other side of the oval office. i saw a red tie and i saw him doing this with his arms. brian: was he yelling at bannon or spicer? ainsley: i don't know if he was yelling. but it's so beautiful. straight ahead of us was the washington monument and that is the south side of the white house. steve: there it is. brian: great job, ainsley. more on my -- oh, excuse me, it is mine. more on interview with speaker ryan. late last knight i asked what he thinks of president trump's performance and more. steve: we will listen to that

are pain, redness or hardness at the injection site; muscle pain; fatigue; headache; nausea; and joint pain. bexsero may not protect all individuals. tell your healthcare professional if you're pregnant or if you have received any other meningitis b vaccines. ask your healthcare professional about the risks and benefits of bexsero and if vaccination with bexsero is right for your teen. moms, we can't wait.

jealous he doesn't own his own romper. ainsley: trying to talk the guys into to wear one of those. brian: like 1920 beach wear. steve: have yoentertained the ie should wear one of those on friday? brian: i don't think so. yesterday we had a chance late in the afternoon. just as the cbo was coming out to visit the speaker of the house. he invited us down to washington so hopped on a plane, went down there, and here's part one of our two-part interview with speaker paul ryan. >> mr. speaker, while you were in your series of meetings, the cbo came out with a score. you ne knew it was coming out a brief look shows over a course of 10 year period you will save 321 billion off the deficit. however 22 million will be without coverage. >> >> what they are basically saying at the congressional budget office is if you are not going to force people to buy obamacare.
3:36 am
if you are not going to force people to buy something they don't want, then they won't buy it it's not that people are getting pushed off the plan. it's that people will choose not to buy something they don't like or want. and that's the difference here. so, by repealing the individual and employer mandate, which mandates people buy this health insurance that they can't afford that they don't like, if you don't mandate they are going to do this, then that many people won't do it. it says if states don't expand medicaid in the future, then fewer people will go on medicaid in the state if you don't expand it in the future. brian: 30% lower in 2020. >> that's the whole point of our bill is to get premiums down. we have been hit with double digit premium increases in obamacare. one of the reasons why people are paying the penalty and not even buying the insurance. one of the reasons why the system is in a collapse right now. the key is to give people more choices, have more competition. bring premiums down. that's why this bill and cbo even says so. brian: right.
3:37 am
>> will bring premiums down so families can afford the coverage. brian: seeing a paul ryan lookalike throwing granny off the cliff. what's your reaction. can you laugh that off at this point. >> oh, yeah. i'm so used to it now. the left is out of gas, they basically decide resist, resist, resist. they want government run healthcare. it's collapsing while we speak. it's not working. we are replacing it with a law that will actually work. anthem blue cross, blue shield says you pass this law it will bring down prices. brian: ripper following they get healthcare wrong they lose the house. do you feel there is that much at stake? >> it's the biggest signature issue we have and it's the biggest promise we have ever made in the modern era. we said if we get elected we will repeal and replace obamacare. we did this in the house. it's now the senate's turn. i think they will do it. i do agree with newt, we were elected to solve people's problems.
3:38 am
to improve people's lives u fixing healthcare is a big support of that. it also means we have got to move on to these other issues. i have told you this before, we're doing so much here in congress. brian: right. >> knocking down our agenda, our list of items to do but a lot of people aren't paying attention to it or the media is not paying attention to it nevertheless we are still charging at it. brian: have you passed 158 bills u president obama had 131. 67. 158 bills have resulted in 37 laws for president trump signed into law. president obama had 24. president bush had 15. numbers don't lie. >> we laid out wha with the president a plan for this term of congress. 2017-2018. how do we keep our promises? how do we improve people's lives and how do we enact an agenda. we are well on our way in doing that the day jim comey was testifying in the senate. that's all anybody paid attention to. we repealed and replaced dodd frank. this week we are doing medical liability reform. two immigration bills.
3:39 am

ainsley: president trump declaring victory on a campaign promise to defend america. the supreme court letting the 90-day ban on travel from six muslim majority countries temporarily take effect. brian: after the ruling, the president tweeted. this very grateful for the 9-0 decision from the u.s. supreme court.
3:47 am
we must keep america safe. here to break down what this means in the decision means is fox news senior judicial analyst andrew napolitano. judge, how significant? >> profoundly significant. there are about 42, 43 judges that looked at this before it got to the supreme court, and 92% of them said the president doesn't have this authority. it's a muslim ban. listen to what he said about muslims during the campaign. the supreme court of the united states looked at what the president wrote, looked at the constitution, looked at what congress authorized the president to do pursuant to the constitution and said, you know what? he can do this. steve: you told us all along. >> thank you, steve. i have been making the argument since january since the first executive order that whether you agree with this or not, whether it's wise or not, whether it's the right thing to do or not, it is legal and constitutional. it is the supreme court has ruled many times that on foreign affairs, the president decides. and the congress has given him
3:48 am
immigration as a tool with which to effect foreign affairs. the goal of which is to secure the united states of america. ainsley: what does that tell you about all the other judges that didn't say it was constitutional? were they being political. >> i think a lot of them. were some of them had a different view of the law. think of the significance of this. do you remember what justice ginsburg said during the campaign. steve: yeah. >> outrageous. steve: which is why she should recuse herself. >> she voted along with the majority. there was no majority. it was unanimous. it was part of that. ainsley: what was it that made her vote for it? >> i believe and those of us that watch these things believe chief justice john roberts who crafted candidly bizarre compromise on obamacare. crafted another bizarre compromise yesterday in order to get everybody to agree that the majority of the travel ban could stay in place, they put in an exception for immigrants from the six countries who have, i'm doing quotes, relationships in the u.s. with a person or an entity.
3:49 am
so, if you have a job offer, if you are offered a seat at a college or university. if you have a family member, blood relative here, you still go through immigration, but you're not subject to the van. brian: how about this: since the real decision comes out in october, right? >> there will be oral argument in october and decision by christmas. brian: wouldn't 90 days be up by then? couldn't the president say done, thank you. >> that's terrific analysis counselor kilmeade. brian: thank you. >> there may be no oral argument in october because the 90 days will have expired. the lead plaintiff in this case is a college professor who has a relationship because he is employed by a university, he will be here. so his case will be gone. brian: i give full credit to judge for my help. >> that's the other judge. chief justice may have crafted such a compromise the president wins, the country is secure and the case goes away. ainsley: thank you, judge.

3:55 am
you know, famously, we may not like speech but if you support the first amendment, people have a right to say it. and if it is over the top offensive, then the university can investigate but they have to give due process and that's my concern here. steve: have you got to admit that was over the top. >> well over the top. i think tucker handled it absolutely right. give her a venue and refute what she is saying. my concern is shutting down speech. you are here at "fox & friends." you guys don't shut down speech. you let people speak and you respond and you give the alternative explanation. the alternative view. that's how you respond to speech in a free marketplace. my concern is that 70% of our colleges and faculty or adjunct faculty. contingent they don't have academic freedom. steve: they don't have the protections. maybe things have changed on american campuses it wasn't that long ago some crazy talk
3:56 am
got a pass. >> and i think changed in the wrong direction. we saw this. steve: you would agree with that. >> we saw this with ann coulter. we have seen this with speakers myelo people being shut down. my view to students and everybody has always been. people say things we disagree with. you have to disagree with them agreenably. you cannot try to shut them down in the united states unless, of course, it's dangerous and going to be a security risk. and that's a different story. steve: you can understand why the university and also the parents of college students would be concerned if somebody talked like in front of their kids. >> i can understanding why they would be concerned. that's why i say the university has a right to let these people go. they have to investigate and give due process. if you're not doing your job and you are not teaching you get let go. not because you say things that the public doesn't like. steve: all right. professor, thank you very much for joining us live. what do you think about that email us at

4:03 am
9-0 unanimous decision. it's been reported so i'm going with that spicer said they had heard it was 9-0. the relevance of that is important. donald trump, if you didn't like donald trump leading up to the election. had you to vote for donald trump if you are a conservative because you knew the court. you needed the court. now have you got one supreme court, neil gorsuch appointed. have you likely a second one kennedy in a year or so appointed. possibly a third if ruth bader ginsburg retires in the next 8 years. then have you three. donald trump four years, eight years. i will go with eight. he is going to move the court to a conservative court by the end of his eight years. brian: you know what's very interesting there are weeks and there have been days since he won election where things have gone bad. some of them in his control. some of them he may have caused with tweets and things where things have gone good. yesterday and last few days things are beginning to turn his direction. look -- people are talking more about 2016 august "the washington post, and less
4:04 am
about some 5:00 story that broke in the "the washington post." >> so the things that you describe as things that have gone not so good for donald trump are things that he tweets about or the media gets crazy about. what's really gone well for donald trump that they won't report are the economic -- i know we talk about it a lot. think about what's going on, unemployment rate at 4.3%. business and consumer confidence at 15 year highs. steve: why? >> one second. housing prices at 15-year highs, maybe sometimes certain types of houses at all-time highs. stock market at all-time highs and the reason is people who invest in their businesses and themselves look forward, they don't look back. you can't credit barack obama with all these massive numbers. smart people, investors, business owners look to the future and because of the rolling back of the regulations, he just unleashed massive, massive jet fuel to the economy what he did with regulations. that's why all these economic
4:05 am
numbers are brimming off the charts. ainsley: cbo report came out yesterday afternoon. i have got a message on my phone. we were waiting to hear if it was going to be positive. it was extremely positive. it says it's going to reduce the federal deficit. it is going to eventually lower premiums. 22 million americans will not be insured in a decade. however, just as paul ryan was telling brian, it's because you can choose to opt out and you are not penalized. >> eric: headline numbers of the 22 million that all, you know, the whole mainstream media says oh my god 22 million people. that's over the course of a decade and by way the cbo isn't accurate with those numbers who gets insured and who doesn't. the big number, $320 billion in deficit savings, that's -- when is the last time you had a president that turned the deficit negative? that's been -- it's been a very, very long time. and then the peopl premiums thao down. first they go up. i'm -- honestly still trying to do the math.
4:06 am
they go up first and then go down substantially though. brian: 10 pierce higher in 2019. 30% lower in 2020. they are releasing a lot of taxes, too. taxes are going to be reduced that was going to help the deficit get reduced as well because a lot of these taxes and mandates are going to go away. the question is what are they going to be able to do along the way to fix it. >> so you just pointed 2018, 2019 premiums go up, right? that's a little bit of a problem for republicans because that's going into midterm elections with premiums rising. you know the left and mainstream media is going to say hey see this new healthcare program is worse than obamacare. but the premiums turn sharply lower from 2020 to 2026 sharply lower. steve: real problem though. according to democrats, we have a little montage sound bite the problem with this bill, eric, is it's going to kill people left and right. watch this. >> i know this is a sensitive issue but i'm going to raise it and that is that the horrible and unspeakable truth
4:07 am
is that if this legislation were to pass thousands of our fellow americans every single year will die. >> we do know that the many more people, millions of -- hundreds of thousands of people will die if this bill passes. >> 1 to 2,000 people will die if you cut 750,000 people from medicaid. so that means you're killing 1 to 2,000 -- killing them. steve: so the republicans are killing all those people. if this goes through. >> i saw yesterday you guys brushed off the old -- push granny off the cliff. brian: we didn't brush it off. they brushed it off. >> can i point out something about bernie sanders. we listen to bernie sanders. here is a guy who ran on socialism, how income inequality is awful in america. is he for the little guy. what did we find out over the weekend? he is under federal investigation for corruption. ainsley: his wife. >> and these things tend to
4:08 am
shred across the family tree. steve: right. i have a feeling that's a story you are not going to see this morning on cnn. and the reason i brought that up is because the president of the united states up this morning and he has already been tweeting. wow, cnn had to retract big story on russia with three employees forced to resign. what about all the other phony stories they do. fake news. and then just a couple minutes later and so far this has gotten 1300 retweets. he reposted something somebody took out where they took the cnn logo and made it fnn fake news network. >> eric: let's talk about what happened over the weekend. the story they had to retract, it shows and highlights what the mainstream media has been doing. they have been rushing to the story before they fact check the story. they have such an interesting getting, attaching something in the form of collusion to donald trump. steve: they had one source. >> eric: in such a rush to tattoo him with that they
4:09 am
don't do homework and due diligence. what it may have been is a wake-up call to the rest of the mainstream media. we better stop. this we better start doing what we're good at doing and investigating sources and stories before they print them. this could be a turning point in the positive direction for trump. brian: do you remember how long cnn made fun of the blame story. they have trouble turning around the aircraft carrier. they have trouble turning it around when it's not about carter page or manafort. >> expose what the tactic was. such a rush to nail trump with something and then they ended up having nothing after they printed i think that might be a wake-up call. steve: we had mark penn on the program last week. he talked about the new harvard harris poll which just came out yesterday. it showed that two thirds of the country feel that this investigation, all the russia stuff, which hasn't panned out, which actually hurting the country. >> let me blow your mind for
4:10 am
one second. just the special counsel alone, mueller has hired 13 lawyers. top notch lawyers, they can earn 1,000, $1,500 per hour. 13. he said he is going to hire more. this could take up to a year. the numbers on that investigation alone, if that's true, exceed $100 million. ainsley: pay for that? >> we don't have -- we can't tell him to stop. brian: you can't. steve: apparently nothing there they haven't released nothing yet. brian: let's talk about the swamp. is this what the president talked about? is that what gave him the idea? >> while is he running. i'm looking and i was there from the very beginning with donald trump and he knows that candidate trump. i was watching these events. and it was either lock her up or drain the swamp. during the drain the swamp one. there was visceral connection between the people and donald trump the candidate. is he going to win. when he wins, we have to figure out what the swamp really is. steve: do you have a passage
4:11 am
from the book you're going to read? >> i didn't know there was an exert cerpt from the book. i didn't know that first i would say to trump -- do you know what these are? these are some ideas that i outlined toward the end of the book after i go through a whole lot of scandals during out book. just how murky and dark and deep the swamp really is there are a couple of things rather than reading them, steve, i will give you the quick cliff notes. number one i would love it for him to continue to tweet. i think tweeting is transparency. i want the most powerful man on the planet to be as transparent as possible. keep tweeting, mr. president. number two, treat the country the way you treat your businesses. treat the oval office the way you treated your board room. people holding their own or keeping the place afloat. you stay. it doesn't matter if you are republican or democrat. you stay. if you are not, it's time to go. the problem is. steve: you're fired. >> you're fired. people on both sides of the aisle who need to some of the most deepest entrenched swamp creatures on the planet are republicans. are republicans.

4:20 am
taxes. >> that makes zero sense. >> yes it does. bernie sanders is not running for president and jane sanders by the way is not either. >> what does president trump's taxes have anything to do with any of this? >> it has everything to do with the fact that bernie sanders is not a candidate for president at this moment and donald trump is president of the united states. >> it has nothing to do with an investigation, it has nothing to do with what bernie sanders is under investigation or. ainsley: lisa has a good point. it's not illegal. not doing anything illegal by not releasing his taxes he is just choosing not to. >> go back to the fact that jane sanders is also not running for president. this is a candidate's spouse. my point i'm trying to make here is that this absolutely pails in comparison. ainsley: lisa, do you think the mainstream media is going to be reporting this. >> no. i don't think they will report it they share joint finances it also does impact bernie sanders. there is a lot we don't know about this investigation. and you know working in politics that, of course, this is going to impact bernie
4:21 am

the eu, the european union hitting the search giant for abusing its position, steering customers to its own online shopping platform. the fine, the largest antitrust judgment ever. and it comes after a seven year investigation, google can appeal the decision. and finally, a new bombshell in the criminal investigation into it contractors employed by dozens of democrats on capitol hill. they are accused of equipment theft and possible breaches of the house computer network. daily caller foundation reporting one of the man rossabas was fired from mcdonald's before being put on the it staff of several democrats. the ringleader of the group under investigation for working for former dnc chair debbie was sermon schultz. that is some of the news. meanwhile? ainsley: controversy and smear campaigns seem to go hand in hand when it comes to
4:26 am
politics. >> the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is a vast right wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. >> just because of the attack of fake news and attacking our network i want to ask you, sir. >> i'm changing it from fake news though, very fake news. brian: from fake news to the so-called vast right wing conspiracy we have brand new book now taking a closer look at the political tactic. it's called the smear. how shady political operatives and fake news control what you see, what you think, and how you vote. steve: joining us now is the best selling author and investigative journalist sharyl attkisson and also the host of sinclaire's full measure. she joins us live on the curvey couch on the mezzanine level. good morning to you. brian: how does smearing start. >> i think it's always been around, maybe not always called that. you can trace some of the
4:27 am
origins to the cia and hitler's propaganda world war ii. going against each other a lot of it starting there. ainsley: what does the modern smear machine look like? >> well, the best at it, both democrats and republicans and corporate interests try to control narratives and they have well financed campaigns and corporations and llcs and nonprofits that do this and try to do it in a hidden way. i think the best at it has to be david brock who is the smear operator who used to come work for conservatives, smearing liberals and then overnight he switched sides and now he smears conservatives on behalf of liberals. ainsley: why did he switch? >> that's a long story. it's in the book. ainsley: they pay more money? >> i think he was sort of odd man out after smearing the clintons in a book that he wrote didn't sell very well and it was sort of thought by some that he didn't have much of a future on that side and overnight he went the other way. brian: you did say clintons were victims. >> the clintons were well-known perpetrators. interest of many smears.
4:28 am
also, when hillary talks about the vast right wing conspiracy, there is a grain of truth to that billionaire named richard who financed after bill clinton became president a huge campaign paying journalists and reporters groups to dig up dirt on president clinton. that's our trooper gate started and david brock wrote one of those nasty articles. steve: wow, cnn had to retract big story on russia with three employees forced to resign. what about all the other phony stories they do, fake news. now, cheryl, you know sheryl sg the obama years and president obama was able to turn it around. >> people don't know, people say all the time trump came up with fake news. i traced it in the book. i was like when did we first start hearing that phrase every day. if you believe the people quoted in the book who operate
4:29 am
in this universe nothing is accident. no message tweeted over and over is by chance. somebody has put it there for a reason. fake news emerges a couple months before the election. mid september when a group called first draft started saying this was their mission to crack down and partnering up with left leaning outlets including facebook, buzz feed, cnn, "new york times." "the washington post. steve: against democrats? >> they started calling it fake news. and, yes, their views seemed to be that there was fake news primarily against democrats and not ever against conservatives. you look at their funding. i dug around into that and reported also in the book that they started the beginning of the campaign cycle as a united kingdom nonprofit. and they were financed primarily by google, whose parent company alphabet, whose ceo or head of that is hillary clinton's number two largest contributor. steve: coincidence, right? >> one month after they announced their initiative, president obama has to crack down and give a big speech about the wild, wild west and
4:30 am
need curators. after the election hillary clinton jumps on board and david brock jumps this is his cause to celeb. brian: fight the smear. i look how ashante handled it sy handled it. i don't care about the blow back. you are wrong. i'm going right at you. is that the right way to do it. >> i think. so i think about survivors of the smear in the book. calling it for what it is rather than being afraid of it i have talked to a lot of journalists who have been victims of smear groups, smear campaigns. they are frightened of it my bosses don't like it. i'm in trouble even though i did nothing wrong. i safe call it for what it is and draw attention to it. people are growing wise to this. when you start understanding that the narratives. when you start seeing something pushed over and over across so many channels and so many outlets i think you should suspect there is a well financed campaign. ainsley: don't have anything to hide can you fight back. >> brian: congratulations on the book it is now out as of today. >> is that you?
4:31 am
brian: no, that is not me. how dare you? >> i think that's boehner. i'm not sure. i think that's a little clip of boehner. brian: if you recognize that man call us. >> i think that's trump's mouth. ainsley: you didn't have anything to do with designing the picture? >> no, i didn't design it. steve: meanwhile, coming up on this tuesday is the real story of collusion in d.c. among the democrats and even former president obama? mark levin says yes. he is going to join us on the other side of a brief time-out. brian: can you spot the mistake in the new washington red skins' license plate? steve: i can. ♪ oh, baby, baby, ♪ i did it again ♪ i played with your heart ♪ got up in the game ♪ oh, baby, baby ♪ oops, you think i'm in love ♪

brian: welcome back, everyone. 26 minutes before the top of the hour. one of the pleasures to bring in one of our good friends of the show. impactful personalities and talk show giant mark levine author of a brand new book. once you pick it up you will not be able to put it down. rediscovering americanism. ainsley: number one on amazon. brian: number one right now. how does it feel like. >> it feels, you know, feels like i'm transitioning. but i appreciate it very much. thank you. it's great to be here. i love you guys. brian: i just got that. steve: i don't know what that means. mark is a perfect person because of your legal background to ask you about the president's unanimous decision yesterday before the u.s. supreme court holding up most of the travel ban. this is a big win for the white house. isn't it? >> and the american people. the president of the united states has access to information that judges don't. just because you go to harvard law school or yale law school
4:36 am
doesn't mean you know everything. one of the things you don't know much about is how to secure the country. how to protect the american people. i don't know if they teach that stuff in ivy league school or not. but judges live in very cloistered environments. they have a couple clerks. the idea a judge or even the justices can substitute their opinions for the reality that a president sees is absurd. prior to this president it was understood by all courts that a president has plenary power over the issue of immigration, right? then we get donald trump as president of the united states and the left form shops with left wing democrat federal district judges in blue states who turn the law on its head. they are lawless. the supreme court has brought it to a great degree back center and has said, wait a minute, the president of the united states can decide this. but, we're going to make some exceptions. and they make some exceptions for, you know, blood relatives and that sort of thing. i would say this to the court. you got it 90% right.
4:37 am
now, butt out of this issue. it's none of your business and just because you are justice us, doesn't mean you know everything. but, yes, it was very, very important that decision. now we need to take it in the fall one step further. ainsley: mark, the president tweeted this said very grateful for the-0 decision from the u.s. supreme court. we must keep america safe. and it's interesting that so many judges before the supreme court got this case did not vote in favor of this. why do we have a unanimous decision by the supreme court? what were the other judges looking at? >> well, isn't this amazing? you got these federal district judges. you got one in seattle. have you got the circuit. the ninth circuit. the fourth circuit. have you another judge in maryland that came up with different conclusions, the fourth circuit and so forth. then we have the supreme court. i think the bigger question to me is how can it possibly be that when it comes to fundamental rights and fundamental decisions about who has the power to do what?
4:38 am
brian: right. >> you can have some courts over here and some courts over here? and the answer is we have a judicial oligarchy. 40% of the federal judiciary has been appointed by barack obama. have you a bunch of clinton holdovers. same thing with the elected branches. they are not judging. they are imposing their personal policy preferences on the people of the united states. and this, by the way, is one of the reasons why i think it is crucially important that we understand this force of progressivism, we understand what they stand for, and we understand that they do not stand for a lot of things that we do stand for. steve: mark, ainsley just quoted a brand new tweet from the president from yesterday. you say that the president of the united states, even though he has taken some grief, even from members of his own party, the president should not stop tweeting. he should keep tweeting all day long? >> well, i don't think he should keep tweeting all day long but he should keep tweeting. i don't think he would do anything all day long except me, eat.
4:39 am
but that's a whole another problem. here's the thing. as i got to think about this, i was thinking why are the liberal media so angry with his tweets? because he goes over their head. steve: sure. >> some of us get a little concerned with. so tweets, the content of some of the tweets. so what? compared to what the media do day in and day out and lie to the american people with their left wing agenda day in and day out if he is wrong 10% of the time or uses the wrong word, who really cares? i worked for reagan 8 years and i campaigned in '76 and '80. he had a unique ability to communicate. he had to go over the head of the media with speeches that he could give. he was a superb communicator. i got to thinking donald trump does the same thing in his own way. and if he doesn't tweet, how in the world is he going to get his message out? so i say keep tweeting, just be careful about what you tweet. brian: right. >> don't be pushed or bullied in to not tweeting. brian: don't be afraid to
4:40 am
tweeting out rediscovering americanism has now been released. one of the things in your book, mark, that's so good it gets away from politics and talks about the founders and foundation and talks about what went into the declaration of independence. hey, john lock, why are we american? what makes us so unique? go back to what the founding fathers were built off of when they constructed the country. what did you discover or what are you trying to relay in this book? >> well, it's very good question. the answer is this: we ignore academics and intellectualists at our own peril because it is they who decide what kind of politics we're going to have. whether it's marxism, whether it's capitalism, whatever it is. and people, their eyes roll over and say let's talk about politics or you know i want to get a sandwich. what i'm saying is if we ignore this debate and just blow off -- we are going to lose the country even more than we have. what i have tried to do here and what i have done here is i have dug into our own foundational principles. we deal with it on the surface.
4:41 am
we talk about liberty and property. what does that all that mean and where does all that come from? we need to into you that as stickily talk aboutalk about ite it. tyranny, progressivism. they get to define the terms and society and the news. who are these people? who are their flofers? why do they believe in what they believe? and i truly think, this book isn't going to change the world, but if it changes a few minds or opens a few eyes that's a very, very important thing. if you will give me one minute i will just explain this. steve: sure. >> here's an example. i believe in constitutionalism. they believe in collectism. we believe in individualism. they believe in conformity. we believe in private property. they don't. we believe in prosperity. they believe in redistribution. we believe in separation of powers. they believe in this big administrative state. we believe in eternal truths. they believe in an ideological
4:42 am
social engineering. we believe in stability. they believe in constant transformation. i'm almost there. this is important. we believe in real science. they believe in social science. we believe in the rights of man. they believe in the power of government. we believe in a moral order. they believe in situational ethics. we believe in liberty. they believe in growing authoritarianism. we believe in education. they believe in indoctrination. now, if you take those ideas, which i discuss at length and won't do here, and apply them to what goes on today, obamacare, their position on the border, their outrageous cookook rhetoric about all the people who will die if they don't retain obamacare and so forth. these things will start to make sense. that is our principles are the principles that have propelled humanity into the enlightenment and reformation ages. their principles are regressive. are absolutely dark and bleak. i think it's crucial and i'm
4:43 am
doing it here, that we take on the elites, that we take on their so-called thinkers, because the principles are with us. brian: mark, you need your own show. i will try to get you on the radio and make you successful. i will do everything i can to make that happen. congratulations on the book. it is enlightening, it's educational. and everyone should pick it up. thanks, mark. ainsley: congratulations, mark. god bless you. brian: you have seen him contemplate his future staring out the window of the white house. joe biden has a new perch to think about. a run in 2020. ainsley: bad news for people fighting to get the minimum wage increase. they just found out they are going to get paid less. stuart varney has the evidence coming up next. steve: come on over, stu. what's your beef, stu? ♪ i want to be rich ♪ oh ♪ i want to be rich ♪

4:48 am
after raising the minimum wage. steve: it wasn't supposed to work that wait a minute workers have seen 3% boost in pay, that's good. but it comes with a 9% reduction in hours. and they lost $125 in their monthly paycheck. brian: all right. here to react host of varney and company and host of the business network stuart varney. hopefully choose not to react we would have four minutes to react. react to that story. >> here is my reaction. let me announce to you some blunt economic truth. when employers are forced to pay more per hour to their workers, their workers work fewer hours. that's exactly what happened in seattle. you put the minimum wage up to $13 an hour, you raise the cost of employing people in seattle, low wage workers. and what do they do? you work fewer hours and you take home less pay. steve: you predicted this. it's economics. >> it's the economic truth, isn't it? look, supposing you are an employer in seattle.
4:49 am
have you a low wage, minimum wage people. suddenly they get a big boost in pay. what are you going to do? you are going to higher fewer people. make them work fewer hours. you will convert to technology as a way of getting rid of some of your workers. ainsley: fire someone and increase your prices to the customers. >> you can do all of the above. all negative. that's the point. steve: speaking of technology. let me take this for secretary, brian. mcdonald's stock up 20% because they are going to lay off a number of the people at the front of the store who actually lay kiosk the order yourself. >> i didn't realize you follow the stock market. steve: indeed. >> well done, son. $150 a share on mcdonald's all time record high just as they are moving away from a lot of counter staff, moving towards technology to replace counter staff. kiosks and what have you and laying off people because they can see coming a much higher minimum wage. brian: i went to ruby tuesday's the other day they put a little thing on my take. i didn't have to see a waiter or waitress.

i picked out all my stuff and tapped it. ainsley: do you like it? brian: no. that's why i'm not going back. >> you go to newark airport. ainsley: you are right airports do. this places to eat very few wait staff. you order on a tablet and a runner. ainsley: have a question about the tablet can't figure out ono one to ask. >> who is going to speak for entry level people who do not get a job because of a higher minimum wage? why is it that every intlee level job has to pay $30,000 a year? that's nonsense. brian: a living wage. steve: moral of the story this social engineering plan back fired. >> well said, steve. i should have said it myself. steve: good enough. ainsley: lots of compliments for steve this morning. >> stock market guru. brian: next time i will stay home. ainsley: coming up next, janice is hanging out with dogs and cooking up healthy

brian: we had a moon roof in the studio. good thing we closed it. steve: we would have lost the security deposit. brian: absolutely. steve: thank you for joining us hour three of fox and friends from studio f. the founder and editor in chief our friend laura ingram. ainsley: hey, laura. >> am i disappearing in the background with black? i'm in tucker's studio. i didn't realize that i'm going to be, like, in a different studio. brian: it looks like you're in a nightclub, but it's perfectly okay. >> another margarita, please. thanks. bring it over. ainsley: hey, laura, i know you're an attorney. what did you think of the supreme court taking over this case and then allowing the 90-day ban from the people entering from the six muslim-majority countries? >> well, it's not a complete victory for the trump administration. there's good news in it, no doubt. the court will hear the entire case in the fall term beginning in october of next year. the current by justice thomas
5:03 am
was really instructive. what he said, and it was joined by the new justice gorsuch, what he said is the idea that the supreme court would make up this new exception for individuals overseas who have quote bon bona fide connections to either people or entities in the united states can basically bypass the president's travel clause. now, that's just ridiculous. the supreme court tried to impart its own legislative authority, which it does not have under our constitution onto this trump travel pause because that's not what the trump administration conceived of. so they just made that whole thing up and now that's going to be another hurdle for judges to clear when they have to consider circumstances on the part of refugees or would
5:04 am
be travelers to the united states from those effective countries. so that is not a win for the president on that specific outline rule, group of exceptions. steve: because they just added that. that's the same thing john roberts, the supreme court chief justice added to obamacare. he just dished out a pan and starts writing extra stuff. >> well, that's exactly why we need justices on the supreme court who understand their role as circumscribed by our framers. they do not have the right to conceive new legislative demands and put them on states, localities of the federal government. that's not how it works. first down want to be legislatures, they should resign their positions, and they should go run for office. but they're justices on the supreme court. i found that to be very disturbing. because somebody has a relative in the united states does not override the president's supreme executive authority under our constitution to deter any national security concern and
5:05 am
address them as he sees fit. so that subcategory they divide in the majority, that's just wrong. so justice thomas and old justice gorsuch are totally right on that. the good news is justice gorsuch seems to be just phenomenal so far. brian: someone just said he is scalia. meanwhile, the white house -- even though you could break it down and say some areas of concern, they look at momentum is going their direction. the senate is taking up health care. the fact that he seems to be aggressively going after things in syria and what warning them ahead of time, it seems like we have a foreign policy very compliant with his image. but something else happened. when he decided to back out of the paris agreement, a lot of cities said we're going to stick with the paris deal.
5:06 am
mike bloomberg is taking it to another level. he's launching a $17 million contest to encourage liberal cities to sidestep what the trump administration did, and that's pull back from those constraints. what's your take on that? >> imagine having that much money where you can just sponsor contests for whatever issue you care about. this is what he did on gun control. he through a lot of money into various activist efforts. he's done this for years. it's not surprising at all. if michael bloomberg wants to throw his money out the window for these types of contests, he can do that. i don't have any problem with that. what we need, however, is for the administration, a continued national tutorial on the proper role of the federal government vis-à-vis these international institutions and international agreements that aren't treaties but could in the future impose really strict rules and regulations on american businesses that are not applicable to the chinese or the indians or the indonesians.
5:07 am
so i just hope given the massive activist push against what president trump is trying to do here, i hope that we continue to see a consistent and really powerful messaging on the issues such as climate change. we care about the environment and conservation efforts. i certainly do. we also have to balance that against the interest of american sovereignty, liberty, freedom, and our willingness to trade away our sovereignty to international institutions that have been very hostile to american rights and freedom in the past. so that's what they have to keep on going. michael bloomberg, i'm not sure that's what they're going to let them achieve. ainsley: is that what the american people want? i know that's what michael bloomberg want. >> well, you dangle money out to local and state governments, and they'll be willing to bite at anything. look at what happened with common core. we had a lot of states willing to go for that microsoft money that bill gates and the gates foundation put out there.
5:08 am
you have to do best for your state whether you're going to get 100 million. brian: what does 17 million get you anyway? >> not going to buy you much. steve: when you click around on the other channels, there's a lot of talk about russia, russia, russia. brian: i haven't noticed. steve: that's because we're busy on this channel doing all sorts of news. well, donald trump took note of the fact that cnn got a story about russian collusion with somebody in his kitchen cabinet really wrong. he tweeted this morning wow. cnn had to retract big story on russia with three forced to resign. what about all the other phony stories he do? fake news. and talked about the story about anthony scaramucci to the russians, they had arthroto retract it, it turns out they only had one source and had to retract it. >> remember all the journalists who continuously beraid the president?
5:09 am
and they do it all the time. someone like an eric used to write for the new york times and now forced to resign. look, he was a phenomenal journalist. you can't question him or thomas frank is another investigative journalist at cnn. look at his track record. turns out, they were behind a story that was fraudulent and defamiliartory. i don't know why scaramucci is deciding not to file a lawsuit against cnn. maybe just doesn't want to deal with the hassle of hiring lawyers. but it is a scandal that cnn allowed this to be published without the rigorous journalistic standards. brian: now there are standards. from here on, there are going to be standards. >> i would remind people on jeopardy a few years ago, one of the reporters who resigned, he admitted that he has been dogging darrell issa for years and had been exposed by
5:10 am
liberal bias for years. so this is not surprising. but donald trump has been right about a lot of the fake news. and this is just one story. other stories have already been retracted, and they have been written and quote investigated by people who we are understanding to be serious journalists. what about the kids who just started at cnn? how is their track record holding up? so i think donald trump's right to be very frustrated with all of this. brian: i just wonder if they're going to hold onto the russia story as long as they held onto the plane story. >> no one cares, though. brian: ten minutes after the top of the hour, jillian, you're preparing the news while we were talking. >> yes. i was very busy back there preparing the news. and i want to start with a fox news alert. the white house will pay a heavy price if it considers out another chemical attack. the assad regime could be planning another mass murder.

saying there's evidence that took place before the massacre this year. the warning coming hours before president trump is set to meet with the french president who also promised retaliation if the assad regime uses chemical weapons. and a team of crooks behind this brutal beat down in the heart of new orleans, take a look at this surveillance video. it shows the surprise attack from behind. tourists falling to the ground. one of them knocked out cold. the they've seen stealing their wallets. both rushed to the hospital. one remains in critical condition. one suspect is under arrest. well, terms ended for supreme court and anthony kennedy is still a justice. there was no retirement announcement, despite the rumors. but they did take up a reconciliation freedom case. you remember this one. a colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple citing religious reasons. one case the high court won't hear, though, a second amendment challenge to a california law placing strict
5:12 am
limits on carrying guns in public. and the former vice president finding himself a good spot to ponder about a 2020 presidential run. take a look at this picture. wilmington, delaware renaming its poll after joe biden, the former vp was a lifeguard there during his senior year in high school in 1962. it's now called the joseph r biden jr. aquatic center. that picture i mean, literally has been going around for hours and hours. brian: looks like it's photoshoped. but he actually was wearing a suit, got up in the chair, took a picture. ainsley: my life was a lifeguard wearing a tuxedo at a wedding and someone needed assistance and jumped in. brian: was it a rental? good luck with that deposit. straight ahead what happened when we tried to ask bernie sanders about the fbi investigation into his wife. >> where are you from? >> fox news.
5:13 am
cbs is reporting on this. politico is reported on this. you still believe it's politically motivated, sir? brian: and more bad news, apparently voters are sick and tired hearing about russia, russia, russia, we're breaking them down with the man behind the poll. next

5:17 am
steve: well, after a string of special elections, democrats are calling for a adjustment in the party's messaging. one that swings away from talking about russia, russia, russia all the time. a new harvard harris poll finds 73% of voters are afraid that the russia probe is distracting from other key issues. mark is the codirector of the harvard harris poll and managing partner and also worked as a lead promised during bill clinton's presidency. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: you kind of gave us a heads-up on this poll coming out. and what you had indicated is that you found that two-thirds
5:18 am
of the country say that the russia investigation is actually hurting the country. explain that. >> yeah. this is a very surprising finding because so many people in the previous polls and even this poll say, hey, i want these investigations. steve: right? >> hey, i'm even okay with a special counsel 75%. but now they look back and see how this is working out and 64% say it's hurting the country. why? because congress and the president aren't focused on the issues that they really care about. and you ask them 56% say congress should not be focusing as much on russia, should focus more on the issues, and those are health care, terrorism, the economy, jobs, tax reform, infrastructure. hey, the people don't want the policies that are going to make their lives better interrupted by these investigations. steve: okay. mark, so the folks out there in america, and we've heard this is true because the number of democrats said, you know, i
5:19 am
just had 25 town halls. nobody wants us to be talking about russia. they want us to be talking about health care and jobs and stuff like that. okay. the topic today is what they're going to do about the affordable care act. and you have republicans trying to change it, and you have democrats seemingly obstructing. they're going we're taking a pass. we're not helping you on this. is that what america wants to see one party not even put their tow in the water? >> well, no, and i think we've consistently found that 89% say the two parties should work together and not just stick to their principles. now, on health care, i don't think the republicans have a coherent enough message. i do think we didn't really poll it as much in this. but voters are very concerned about medicaid.
5:20 am
i think you see the president focused on terrorism and creating jobs and the economy. and health care even with democrats have scored real points here. steve: excellent question. do the republicans pass something this week? >> all right. looks really tough. i think republicans are going to have to show party discipline. remember, right now the ratings of the republican party are way below trump. so are the democratic parties ratings. they're both below trump because nobody's getting anything done. people have to get things done. steve: all right. let's see what happens. they've got until the fourth of july, supposedly. mark, thank you for joining us from our nation's capitol. >> thank you. steve: still ahead, call it the great american debate. celebrate the fourth of july with fireworks or bald eagles? one or the other? the dilemma facing one town coming up. and democrats bringing back that granny over the cliff ad.
5:21 am
so does paul ryan really send her over the edge? he responds in his one-on-one with brian coming up from the cl 'n mountain coffee and fair trade? let's take a flight to colombia. this is boris calvo. boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price, he improves his farm and invest in his community to make even better coffee. all for a smoother tasting cup. green mountain coffee.

5:23 am
5:24 am
>> a trillion dollars in medicaid. people with alzheimer's, strokes, heart conditions, we need medicaid. no middle class family can afford a nursing home by themself. if president trump keeps listening to paul ryan, we'll all be on the street or something even worse. brian: that was supposed to be paul ryan throwing -- and this is out again. throwing a granny off the
5:25 am
cliff because of his plan. even though it's a senate plan, health care plan. steve: which the democrats say the plan is to reduce medicaid by $800 billion. brian: so you know right now on capitol hill, the republicans have the titanic task of trying to put another health care plan together. well, to the point they need 60 points, looking at that and seeing where the political pluses are. yesterday afternoon, we were invited down to speak to speaker ryan as the cbo spoke and what they've accomplished so far in the house. because he feels the message is not getting out. because like i said we said before, it's all about russia, russia, russia. here's part one of our two-part series. brian: mr. speaker, the cbo came out with a report, and you knew it was coming out, you're going to save 321 billion off the deficit,
5:26 am
however 22 million without coverage. >> they're basically saying if you're not going to force people to buy obamacare, then they won't buy it. so it's not that people are getting pushed off a plan, it's that people will choose not to buy something they don't like or want. and that's the difference here. so by repealing the individual mandate, which mandates these to buy the insurance that they don't like, then that many people won't do it. it also says if states don't expand medicaid in the future, then fewer people go on medicaid expand in the future. brian: premiums are going to be 20% higher in 2019 but 30% lower in 2020. >> that's the whole point of our bill to get premiums down. it's one of the reasons why people are paying the penalty and not even buying the insurance. it's one of the reasons why the system's in a class right
5:27 am
now. so the key is to give people more choices, have more competition, bring premiums down. that's why this bill will bring it down so people can afford the coverage. brian: i think you'll see what they're doing to republicans throwing a granny off the left. >> i'm so used to this. what they do is resist, resist, resist. government health care is collapsing as we speak. it's not working. so what are we doing? we're replacing it with a law that will work. it's going to stabilize the market. it's going to get more plans offer to people. brian: newt gingrich says if republicans get health care wrong, they lose the house. do you feel there's that much at stake? >> well, i think it's probably the most -- it's the biggest signature issue we have, and it's the biggest promise we've ever made in the modern era. we said if we get elected, we
5:28 am
will repeal and replace obamacare. it's now the senate's term. i think they're going to do it. so i do agree with newt that we were elected as all people's problems to improve people's lives. fixing health care is a big part of that. but it also means we have to move on to other issues. and i told you this before. we're doing so much here in congress, knocking down our list of items to do. but a lot of people aren't paying attention to it. brian: you passed 158 bills have resulted in president trump signed into law. president obama had 24, president bush had 15. numbers don't lie. >> we lied out a plan for this president. how do we keep our promises? how do we improve peoples lives? we're well on our way in doing that. and remember the day jim comey was testifying in the senate?
5:29 am
that's all paid attention to. guess what the house did that day? we repealed and replaced dodd-frank. sanctuary cities. how. brian: how would you gray the president? >> i think he's doing fine. what we do in congress is we're not getting distracted by different issues. we're focusing on doing our jobs. most of the media wants to focus on investigations. brian: and do you have a letter grade? >> i don't do letter grades. we complained on doing serious things with this president. it's going to take its time to do those things. but we get this done, this will be the most productive presidency in congress in our lifetime. steve: excellent. brian: yeah, i appreciate the time and interest. but what i wanted to do is like we did with senator scott a year ago
5:30 am
is spend the day with him. so he goes to a church and then meets with a leadership, this is how close we got. he said i'll let you into a leadership meeting and no one seen this ten years ago, and he was not the speaker, obviously, back then, and they were a little shocked to see me and the camera. the empty seat across to his right, i don't know if you see it tomorrow. ainsley: how many people in the leader meeting? brian: there seemed to be 10 to 12, you can see the back of kevin mccarthy's head. and they actually let me sign a few things into law. ainsley: so your message to paul right back is thank you for the interview, but i really wanted 24 hours. brian: right. i wanted the whole day. he flies into wisconsin a meeting at 6:00 morning, and then 8:00 in the morning, a meeting, and 8:30 an emergency meeting. it goes on and on. ainsley: he doesn't want to spend too much time with you, brian. you only get an hour. what happened after we tried to ask bernie sanders about
5:31 am
the fbi investigation into his wife? >> where are you from? >> fox news. >> okay. >> cbs is reporting on this, politico is reporting on this. do you still be it's willing politically motivated, sir? >> why the dodge? newt gingrich is going to fill in the blanks for you once upon a time a girl with golden locks broke into a house owned by three bears. she ate some porridge, broke the baby bear's chair, and stole some jewelry, a flat-screen tv, and a laptop. luckily the geico insurance agency had helped the bears with homeowners insurance. they were able to replace all their items... ...including a new chair from crate and barrel.

5:35 am
the most -- it's the biggest signature issue we have, and it's the biggest promise we've ever made in the modern era. we said if we get elected, we will repeal and replace obamacare. we did this in the house. it is now the senate's term. i think they're going to do it. so i do agree with newt that we're -- we were elected as all peoples problems to improve people's lives. fixing health care is a big part of that. brian: paul ryan yesterday. now let's bring in the former speaker who has the number one book in the country right now. understanding donald trump. newt gingrich. he agrees with you kind of, understanding trump, i would say. he agrees with you kind of. i didn't want to put it like that stark view. but you hold with that. that's what's at stake right now; correct? >> let me say, first of all, i thought that was a great interview. brian: thank you. >> and i thought that paul ryan did a great job, and you did a great job, and i think you've got a lot to be proud of. the veteran reform alone is
5:36 am
historic and remarkable. the point i'm making is one about substance and two about communication. this is a work in progress. the senate has to come out with a bill that the american people conclude is better than obamacare. at least half of that is a communications problem. one, quick example. after all the news media talking about cutting medicaid in the house republican bill, i did some research. it actually goes up 20% over the next ten years. now, think about that. all of this talk about cut, cut, cut. no. no. it's a 20% increase over the next ten years. so half the republican problem or more than hatch is the communications problem because said gee, they're actually putting 20% more into medicaid over the next decade. that's a serious effort in the right direction. ainsley: i don't know if you can upon which so much stock in the cbo report. but the cbo report that just
5:37 am
came out yesterday reduces the federal deficit, it will eventually lower the premiums and 22 millions will not be insured but that's because they're choosing. but if you listen to democrats, they all hate it. they say it's going to kill people. listen. >> i know this is a sensitive issue so i'm going to raise it. and that is the horrible and unspeakable truth is that if this rejection were to pass, thousands of our fellow americans every single year will die. >> we do now that the -- many more people -- hundreds of thousands of people will die if this bill passes. >> one to 2,000 people will die if you cut 750,000 people from medicaid. so that means you're killing 1- 2,000. ainsley: what's your response
5:38 am
to that? >> you know, i think the democrats responsibility is total unbounded. what they just said was a lie. we have 8,000 centers in this country. they don't even count as part of this bill. 8,000 places where people can get help. we have lots of new approaches and new techniques. the state of maine has adopted a series of reforms that are remarkable that are providing a better future. people have an income go up as much as 116 percent on average. kansas to provide better care for more people of lower cost. so this notion that the republicans want to kill people, it's really -- it's almost pathetic that the democratic party has no new ideas, no new solutions, takes no responsibility for the disaster that they passed with obamacare and all they have is
5:39 am
wild charges that no serious american is it going to look at as an actual problem. brian: do you believe that the russia story is finally out of gas? it seems to have turned the president's way and more of the former president. but you've seen things happen that are unprecedented. where is the russia story going as it relates to this administration? >> in addition to writing stories about trump, i write stories about terrorism. i wouldn't have the nerve to write this story. barack obama to testify under oath when he knew about russia meddling. was it really last august as the news stories say? who told him? it's going to turn out, yes, there's a big russian story. it's barack obama. not donald trump. and you cannot make this stuff up. brian: you are predicting he's going to go in and testify? >> i think the congress has an obligation to call him in.
5:40 am
how can you be told the president of the united states knew last august that the russians were, in fact, involved in this and not ask him -- ask him under oath? i mean, how can you be so irresponsible? the house and senator are going to have to call obama in and say who advised you? why did you not decide to do anything? and then why did you keep quiet for six months while everybody looked at the russians and trump when you, in fact, had this information? steve: so there was collusion. during the obama years. i tell you what, in real life, cnn has been pushing the russia thing all the time, and of course there was the push to get that anthony scaramucci story. and they linked him to a russian scandal and had to
5:41 am
retract it and a couple three people got fired. the president tweeted out something brand-new. and it says fake news cnn is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony russian story. ratings way down. all right. here's the president of the united states using his twitter verse to take a shot at cnn, which, you know, we saw some of the statistics. 93% of their stories are antitrump. so this is not surprising. >> look, they should appoint an outside analyst who used to be the attorney general of the united states and basically resaid it. he clearly made a gamble last year that clearly have done things that are absurdly wrong. i like lots of the people at cnn.
5:42 am
i worked with them for a while and there's very good people at cnn with a very long tradition of being good journalists. but the culture of the overall system right now is very suspect, and i think they should bring an outside person like attorney general to review the whole culture and to reset it so people can have faith in cnn again. ainsley: how about the victory for the president when it comes to the travel ban? we had the supreme court make a ruling yesterday, and they're going to take up the case in the fall, and they're going to allow parts of it now to go ahead, including that 90-day ban and the 120-day ban on the refugees. >> well, first of all, it proves that the president was right, despite all the news media attacks. second, it puts real doubt on the ninth circuit court. i think the ninth circuit court should be profoundly overhauled. it's the most routinely overturned court in the united states. it is consistently wrong, and i think that we ought to have a serious look at why is the ninth circuit so bad and what should be done to fix it? brian: newt, congratulations
5:43 am
on your book. we got the topic that the whole world is talking about, and that's donald trump as its premise. appreciate it. ainsley: congratulations on your success. >> good talking to you. brian: understanding trump. meanwhile, straight ahead, you just heard newt call out the obama administration on russia. we've got a lot to say about this next. either that, or we have to look at -- you always pay

5:47 am
in pay, there was a 9% reduction an hour. so that means there was a $125 monthly cut to their paycheck. and fourth of july efforts clash in one town. authorities in can it are asking people not to set off fireworks because it could scare bald eagles. anyone that does faces jail time. brian: one obama administration official said who's nameless is telling the washington post last week about their response to russian hacking. it's a far cry from when president obama said last year of this warning to vladimir putin about cyber hacking. >> in early september when i saw president putin in china, i felt that the most effective way ensured that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly and tell him cut it out, and there would be
5:48 am
serious consequences if he didn't. i think we handled it the way we should have handled it. ainsley: here with us the host of lou dobbs on the fox business network, lou dobbs. >> absolutely and great to be with you guys. steve: and the topic is perfect. it's all about russia. and you look at what the former president did, it looks like he had a chance to do something, and he sat on his hands. >> sat on his hands. led from behind. strategic patience. it defines the passivity and the farce that was an entire administration. he didn't respond. he didn't react. he didn't intervene when he had every responsibility to do so. steve: because he thought hillary clinton was going to win, and he didn't have to get involved? >> i think he did i think hillary was going to win without question. but i'm not sure there's a correlation between that and his failure to act because his entire administration is one
5:49 am
failure to act after another. ainsley: all right. be consequences for this, lou? >> i believe there will be severe consequences. ainsley: what do you think? >> well, first of all, in historical terms, he will be held accountable. this is going to go down as one of the worst administrations absolutely in history. secondly, he now and members of his administration are in great legal jeopardy. steve: president obama. lou: president obama, loretta lynch as attorney general following abattorney general who became the first sitting cabinet member in this country's history to be held by contempt of congress. brian: and i'm not kidding you, it's going through the roof. and another thing putin's gambet, it's a thriller. tell me where the creative fiction eyes lou dobbs, mr. facts turns fiction. lou: well, my second thriller, brian, and it's great. and it gives you an opportunity to speculate and to conjecture without consequence. and we just happen to -- i guess authors don't often say
5:50 am
this, but we got very lucky with this book because putin when we wrote it, we didn't know that donald trump would be president. we feared it would be a different kind of leadership with greater passivity. the predecessor president obama. so what unfolds is financial mayhem, by the way, which is the template for his attempts and i believe his absolute dream to replicate once again the union of socialist republic in his own image, and it all begins. brian: putin's gambet, hear more about it on the promotion on the channel. lou: oh, you're going to hear about it. brian: and watch it tonight. steve: thank you, lou. lou: great to see you, steve. ainsley: timing of everything worked out. thank you. steve: well, you've been listening during the lou dobbs interview to wild animals making all sorts of noise. ainsley: a jungle out there. steve: going to join us with
