3:07 am
we live in a country where we have forgotten so many of the founding basics which does make america especially. exceptionalism means you are different than the rest. this is an american experiment started by men which then became more inexclusive because of those founding ideas that is still an experiment and still exceptional in the world today. let's celebrate the heck out of it and that's what it was. jedediah: it's beautiful. i didn't find it eighth grade at all what better day to recownsd the history. he was going in and paying tribute. he went back to george washington. the coincidental congress. achievement in science and medicine. that's what that day is about. many critics said he would make it about him and he did the opposite no. better day than the fourth of july to go through the history this is who we are, we fight to protect your freedoms since day one. that's who we are. i didn't find it eighth grade history lesson at all. ed: many democrats out on the trail in iowa bashing

3:10 am
thanks to doug las and so many other heroes we ended that grotesque evil and have made enormous strides protecting the civil rights of everybody. and a little bit more from senator ted cruz. thougdouglas was not anti-american. he was, rightly and passionately, anti-slavery. indeed, he concluded his speech as follows. jedediah: he fought against riflefully so things embedded in the declaration of independence and founding documents would enable -- would not enable slavery to exist for much longer. he knew those founding principles were going to fight against slavery and create equal opportunity for all. that's an important message and if colin kaepernick is going to put his message out there. pete: all this time and controversy that's the best he could come up. jedediah: because is he not challenged. ed: he was challenged by a gold star mom.

ed: i hope adisdoe addition doer nike goes to that mom. jedediah: you hear people lost people in this fight and outraged by what looks like a complete represent all genders and races and achievements made because you live in america. tanks to her because of that. pete: reason people come here and still want to come here.

3:51 am
painful. fever. you want to keith gte fruited immediately. antibiotics can save limbs and even your life. pete: what causes this? >> a few different types of bacteria that can cause it. people think it's just one. it's not true. most common is strep a type of bacteria. infecting a cut or escape or open wound often when it is exposed to water containing this bacteria. jedediah: okay now you are going to separate fact from fiction for us. see what we can figure out. >> summer safety. let's see how good you guys are number one question, flesh eating bacteria can occur in warm gulf water, lakes, or even pools? fact or fiction? two facts and a fiction. the truth is it is a fact. when we are talking about bacteria. they often thrive in warmer conditions. right now even the ocean is getting warmer. a mix of salt water and fresh water. pools, hot tubs anywhere
3:52 am
where these temperatures are higher. bacteria love to breathe. if you have an open wound you should stay out of the water. if it's a tiny cut cover it with waterproof beverage. number two it's okay for people to drink and swim? i bet a lot of people were doing it yesterday but this is definitely fiction. you know, a high percentage of drowning death are associated with alcohol in adults. this is because when you are drinking you lose your perception. you think you are more capable than yo you are. lose your sense of balance. a situation more dangerous. if you are going to swim. swim first and then do your drinking. if you are going to drink stay out of the pool. by the pool is okay. pete: avoid the beer muzzle. >> talking about a picnic

4:03 am
political. there was not one line that i heard that was not a unifying message saying we can all come together on founding principles and do what we do best. >> it was beautiful and patriotic. it was befitting of the fourth of july it was we minding americans of the basics. basic god given rights enshrined by a creator and not by a government. individual freedoms and liberty. all the things that make america special. lay that out on a platter. that's what president trump did yesterday's. except the platter was very big and had a big pool in the middle on the washington mall with b-52s. he talked about patriotism. this is another portion of what the president said. >> america's fearless resolve has inspired heroes who defined our national character from george washington, john adams, and betsy ross who douglass, you know, frederick douglass, the great frederick douglass. harriet tubman, amelia

4:05 am
the pavement is not going to buckle in washington, d.c. and all the money on that. it's really all about trump. it's not about our service members. it's not about their sacrifice and not about my brothers and sisters who lost their lives in service to this country. >> is he having a parade for himself. putting tanks out there for him sufficiently. >> i think we need money to go into rebuilding our infrastructure. i'm not quite sure that we need money to go in to put tanks in downtown washington, d.c. >> we got to put him in his place. yes we got to call out when he does something wrong. we can't make it about him. >> bernie, can we get a red, white and blue cap on the fourth of july just one time? ed: the president has been talking about infrastructure bill two years. bernie sanders and the democrats and socialists like him because he is a democratic socialist they haven't worked with the president. they have been resisting on issues that should be nonpartisan bipartisan. the other thing is they constantly say this was a military parade you would see in north korea.
4:06 am
the president said this on the record on camera you can check it out back in 2017 that would have inspired him to do this yesterday is what he saw in france on bastille day. not what the communists are doing but the french are doing. >> there is nothing authentic about what's going on with democrats right now. not like they waited and they heard the president's speech and reacted in realtime to what he was saying. they went in with preprogrammed media driven talking points about what they thought this speech was going to be. and they rolled with it. ed: as tulsi gabbard he is not celebrating the men and women in uniform. jedediah: that was the whole speech. pete: you saw bernie sanders walking up and down that street. they don't have to carry an american flag. not that he is not patriotic. he has a golf cart. this flag is important. it's significant. it matters. shoulder in patch into combat. freedom is not free that flag represents around the
4:07 am
world let's celebrate as loud as possible and be proud of it in a society right now that is starting to dismiss it or starting to say it's a divisive symbol. and that's the contrast. we are going to see that all the way through the election. the flag represents goodness or the flag is something we are rejecting. ed: the president also standing up for first responders not just mental and women in uniform talking as well about law enforcement and treating them with respect, law enforcement officials. that includes border patrol officials who have been under assault themselves in recent days. some of the rhetorical attacks you have seen from democrats alike. what are border patrol agents actually doing? look at these images of these border patrol agents finding migrants in a hot truck not only saving their lives getting them out. people are not mentioning the smugglers and others that are putting these migrants in desperate situations while the border patrol agents overrun, overmatched are doing their best to try and take care of
4:08 am
these people. >> important to note also inside that truck you had minors, you had a pregnant woman. all of these democrats that are out there and are talking about humanitarian crisis. why don't you care that you are incentivizing a system that allows a truck like this under these conditions like this to carry women and children, particularly, and men as well but people in such precarious conditions if you are really concerned about prevention you would be doing something about it. president trump is trying to prevent this situation from manifesting and growing and reproducing. pete: also in that truck a convicted felon attempting to come back into the country illegally once again. i thought griff jenkins had a great stat a couple days ago when i was watching "fox & friends." that's what i do when i'm at home this year alone 3400 people have been rescued by border patrol agents. rescued in life or death situations taken out of rio grand river. saved by americans putting their lives on the ground to save people coming illegally. it's amazing. yet, they get persecuted by

4:18 am
president reminded you that we're the greatest country on earth and it falls directly in line with what he has talked about which is putting america first. being proud to be an american again. look, he has restored the values that we have held dear for some years. our dominance overseas us being proud that our family members have served in the military. remembering our heritage. remembering the people who came before us. that's what the president talked about yesterday. if that doesn't make you proud to be an american, then it really calls into question if you really belong in this country. pete: corey, how many times is the media going to speculate wildly is he going to do this but in reality he does y and delivers in that event for what he said -- how many times have you seen that? >> unfortunately, i have seen it hundreds of times. look at the president's trip to the dmz last week. the contrast between when barack obama went there behind the glass with the military people pointing out what the dmz was and the president walking across. they said this is a disaster. it was historic event. what he did yesterday, with the fourth of july, massive

4:20 am
>> >> sir, are you dropping in the polls? >> what do you make of the polls. >> i'm still way ahead. ed: he has been dropping and yet somehow he says i'm way ahead. >> joe biden's campaign is in big trouble. look. the more people see joe on the debate stage his worse his numbers are which is the exact opposite of what happened in the 2016 campaign. remember, when the first debate donald trump was in the center stage leading in the polls. he never looked back. he ran the race wire to wire. joe biden started great name recognition. 50 years of government experience. people listen to him talk and pull numbers fall. joe biden i will make the prediction right now not known to be the democratic nominee. he has not been progressive enough and done enough in the african-american community as kamala harris outlined. his friends and i use that term in air quotes in washington, d.c. going to remind the democratic voters joe can't win the democratic election. joe is trying to win the primaries by saying he is
4:21 am
going to devito president trump. same strategy that jeb bush tried to use in 2016. it's not going to work. ed: who are you going to face. >> bernie sanders against the field. bernie is far progressive. he raised a lot of money. he didn't raise as much as pete did or as joe did. but he is right there. and i think at the end of the day, bernie has a following because when you give away everything free in america college television or illega -- collegetuition or. this election is capitalism vs. socialism. we win. jedediah: corey, i would keep a close eye on kamala harris. she has strength on the debate stage. keep an eye on her. >> not one person has pointed out how she started her career in politics. not one person has talked about her record as the attorney general of california. and so, look, that is coming. and still very, very early. look, she did have a good debate. but it's the first of many. and she had better be.

help conservatives across the country helping them fight against antifa. pete: gabriel, what does antifa believe they stand for? >> they believe themselves to be freedom fighters. somebody fighting against fascism? what is fashio fascism? anything they don't like. ed: do they teach violence? because this video is shock. it's disturbing and disgusting frankly what they're doing in the name of freedom. do d. they coach you on being violent? >> no. i think violence is not necessarily something that you coach. it's more of a mob mentality a lot of people who are wearing the black mask don't go into the rally thinking they are are going to hurt somebody. they get caught up in if somebody hits someone you are expected to jump in and help out somebody else who is in the black mask. pete: gabriel, why do they wear masks? if they are such freedom fighters why do they hide their face? >> they are scared. they know what they are
4:29 am
doing is wrong and there would be repercussions for it. ed: look at this op-ed from the assistant professor in the wake of the portland attack. antifa in america militant antifascism isn't terrorism it's self-defense that's a professor who is supposed to be teaching young people like you. >> the problem is he is not alone. at the leadership institute's campus reform we routinely report on a lot of profersz who advocate violence no self-defense to go and attack conservative students and not self-defense to attack journalists like andy. pete: you say they fight against things they don't like and arbitrary in that sense. reading your background you were first engaged because they were protesting the pledge of allegiance. is it america they don't like? >> i think so. a lot of them -- at one of my first protests i attended a couple of my friends had

unknown of what could happen next. i could tell you through the night while we were trying to sleep we could fill after shocks few mention before we got on air we felt one more. it is happening and we expect more to happen in the coming days. back to you in new york. pete: jeff, thank you very much. appreciate it. back here in new york city other side of the country talk to lawrence jones campus editor in chief keeping up with jones and man on the street on fox nation. how are you doing? great to have you. >> you saw the salute to america yesterday on the national mall, president trump delivering as jedediah has pointed out correctly a message of unity. >> it was such a political speech. so many things like lock her up and get rid of the democrats and build the wall he commanded the troops to go on the street. come on. this is what the media told us is going to happen as with all they overamp things up. get people all riled up. it was nonpolitical speech. the president unified the
4:37 am
country. i think it was one of his best speeches. can he take that on the campaign trail now? i think i can. jedediah: take a listen to what some of the president had to say yesterday. >> we will always be the people who defeated a tyrant, controlled the continent, harnessed science. took to the skies and soared into the heavens. we will never forget that we are americans. and the future belongs to us. [cheers and applause] >> as long as we never ever stop fighting for a better future then there will be nothing that america cannot do. [ applause ] >> yeah, no politics there. >> lawrence, i'm sure you are waited with baited breath for apologies from the media and democrats who said he is going to be so divisive, right? >> we didn't get any apologies during the russia
4:38 am
investigation after the no collusion came out. we won't get apologies now. this is why the american people are tuning out to them. this is why the ratings are tanking right now. they asp them up and get them all emotional and then the facts come out and it's nothing like they predicted it to be. >> look what was going on outside the white house while a lot of this was playing out. people coming together to celebrate america's birth and you have other people out there burning the american flag. i got an email last night from a secret service official who said there were secret service officers who got injured caught literally in the crossfire there. what goes through the mind of people who seem to hate america so much that even on july 4th they would do. this props to the uniform secret service kept their cool yesterday while when people are burning an american flag. let me tell you something. they think america is defined by the president of the united states. fact of the matter presidents come and go. disagreements with barack obama. disagreements with george bush. america is not defined by the person that's in the white house. america is defined by the
4:39 am
ideas, as a libertarian myself i have disagreements sometimes where the government is going. i think spying on americans. at the end of the day the idea is to hold them accountability. the biggest defense is the constitution of the united states. a lot of people don't recognize that. pete: kudos to the guy who ran into the crowd and put out the burning flag with his bare hands. >> a lot of these people out here don't have jobs because they want complete anarchy out here. this is the antifa crowds of the world who believe they don't like anything. damage things, set things on fire. i think it's a childish way of dealing with life. at the end of the day, we will have things all the time that we disagree with the country on. there is a better way to do. >> lawrence, i got ask you about colin kaepernick causing a loft controversy with betsy ross flag. there is a sports blog out there talking about how colin kaepernick what do they call him captain america. with a kap. jedediah: kaepernick just saved nike from making a big
4:40 am
mistake at this point kaep is captain america. >> is he a capitalist. realizes nike has a group support their shoes. target audience and saw great profits from. this as it relates to benefits for the black community, there is a lot of people out there that are up vesting every single day to make this country a better place especially in black america. i don't think colin kaepernick is one of those because he was on the downside of his career and decided to kneel. >> they are missing the bigger picture though. in america someone like phil knight can start a shoe company in the back of his garage and turn into a juggernaut without the government restricting them and compete on a fair level. what is colin kaepernick missing about the betsy ross flag or u.s. flag? >> i think he wants to go -- i think he has a revisionist point of history. because some people because it's been said some kk members decided to take the pledge. every symbol in this nation whether it's a business or private business or our american flag will be
4:41 am
hijacked by some extreme group. the bottom line is where did it come from? okay? and that's what the debate is really. i don't like getting into the symbolism of the debate because i don't think it's helpful for the country, again, he has a target audience. is he trying to make money now because is he not in the league anymore. he was already on the downside of his career. that's a fact right now. part of the reason why he was kneeling he was on the bench. i would like to focus on the people actually contributing to this economy and contributing to black america. making life better for the people in my community. i don't think colin kaepernick is one of them. ed: phil knight can launch a nike juggernaut. lawrence and jones keeping up with jones and man on the street. check him out fox nation, we appreciate it. jedediah: head over to carley shimkus right now. how are you doing? >> listen to this tragic story here. a miami dolphins' player loses his arm after a

4:47 am
and everything that we are so blessed to have. all these faces, right? >> what inspired your music on this tour? was it the patriotism of this country or just to give your fans something new and fresh? >> i think it's both of those. we love our country. john and i both have had family members and so many friends that are involved in the military from decades ago. friends from new york city that are first responders we see them on our journey across the country. you see the disasters happening you just saw it. firefighter on tv. these are truly the men and women on front lines of freedom all across our country. we get to salute them every show. jedediah: what's your favorite song to perform? >> what's our favorite one? >> i told kenny this the other day we could probably be 100 years old and they

pete: welcome back. this week navy seal eddie gallagher is a free man found not guilty on murder charges in the death of an isis fighter. he and his wife andrea joined us on "fox & friends." >> i feel completely grateful and blessed to have this support i had this whole time. >> we overcame this and continue to make sure this does not happen again to warriors in this country. pete: don't want to happen it again. well it is, another warrior currently facing murder charges from his own government is green beret major matt golsteyn accused of killing a taliban bomb
4:53 am
maker. here with update is major golsteyn's wife julie golsteyn. thank you for joining us this morning. >> good morning, pete. pete: good morning. your reaction to the way eddie gallagher's case played out and please give us an update on what matt is facing right now. >> sure, we are thrilled for eddie, andrea, their children, sean, the entire gallagher family why are so he happy for them this nightmare is over. this experience is nothing less than traumatic. that's the best way i can describe this what the was formally arraigned last week at fort bragg. motion hearings august and september. and trial date of november 4th. so we are getting ready hopefully have our victory. matt has been at this for 8 years of this persecution. and four years ago matt was cleared of any wrongdoing after a six day hearing where all the evidence was presented an army panel said
4:54 am
what he did was legal combat action and took out a identified bomb maker, member of the taliban why we are here, i do know why we are here because he wasn't supposed to win that board. he was never let out of the army either charged in or medically tired. that said at the army review agency until he was charged with murder and got sent back to fort bragg with no action or no explanation because the army always planned to do this. pete: to summarize briefly matt killed taliban bomb maker. army looks into it, army clears him. other people in the army still don't like that so they are trying him again. now is he going through a court-martial. eddie gallagher's case wrapped up. he was found not guilty. your process is still going on. you said eddie gallagher a couple years. you said his almost 8 your family can't move on.
4:55 am
what will happen in this process you believe this system will ultimately find matt not guilty. >> this is like living in a twilight zone. almost a decade ago. he has he already been cleared. there is no evidence because there was no crime. so, i don't know what we're doing here. but i do know that just like at eddie's trial what this trial will be a scathing indictment of not only the military justice system as a whole special operations under general burdett. jag corps; division under fort bragg under the leadership of angel myles. these are the people that need to be investigated and prosecuted. we hope that general mille takes as much interest in these inept unethical people as did he in matt's case. pete: is he getting access to the lawyers he needs. is he being treated fairly? what's his situation. >> no. we provided you with an
4:56 am
email of colonel todd sunday matt had requested permissive tdy next week to meet with part of his legal team in washington, d.c. once again this is not the first time, he was dbsd that opportunity. he is told that he needs to report for duty at fort bragg which as i said before his duty is to report at 9:00 in the morning and 4:00 in the afternoon as an accountability check. that's it. that supersedes his desire and need to meet with his legal counsel when his entire life is in the balance. pete: on the line. >> also still separated from our children, me. and also he has also been denied -- the commands has denied his access to captain nina hilner who represented to represent him fours years ago on the board. they denied it because they said there is no existing attorney-client relationship. she wants to be on the case. pete: should be allow you had to. >> now they are getting pressure from robert manly
4:57 am
to -- pete: julie i hate to do this but we will go to black. >> no problem. pete: we hope you get justice and your family as well. more "fox & friends" on the otherth side. which led to the discovery that sometimes a little down time can lift you right up. expedia. everything you need to go. . .

people to debate, geraldo rivera, correspondent at large the welcome the day after 4th of july. >> hi, jedediah. happy july 5th. jedediah: happy july 5th to you. i want to go straight to president trump's speech and. >> i miss it live, watched it on c-span. i thought the president defied all the odds, legion of critics thought it would be about him. it was not. it was not a political speech at all. it was a rousing patriotic traditional call to patriotism for all americans. the crowd was good. he defied the humidity, the soaking rains. the planes flew. everyone seemed to have a good time there were minor scuffles here and there. generally speaking it was a huge success. i was delighted that the critics were defied and abashed, at
5:04 am
least they should have been. ed: if you missed it live on fox, replay on c-span like geraldo. here is a quick taste. then we'll get geraldo to respond. >> nearly 250 years ago a volunteer army of farmers and shopkeepers, blacksmiths, merchants, militiamen risked life and limb to secure american liberty and self-government. this evening we have witnessed the noble might of the warriors who continue that legacy. as long as we stay true to our course, as long as we remember our great history, as long as we never ever stop fighting for a better future, then there will be nothing that america cannot do. [cheers and applause] pete: geraldo, can the president's critics get past him and hear a unifying message like that? >> i think major, you know the answer to that. i think trump-hating is such a
5:05 am
pathological affliction, people can't give credit where credit is due. i also want to point out the president was extremely disciplined in his speech yesterday. he was appealing to all americans, not just those who supported him. he was remembering our patriotic past, extolling the virtue of our heroes. i like that donald trump. i really do believe if we saw more of this of 45th president, there would be, he could have an effect, he could run a campaign that is positive, run a campaign that celebrates the fact that we've had 121 months in a row of continued economic expansion. celebrate the fact we have record low minority unemployment. talk about the things that unite us as a people. i love that donald trump. john rich and i were were both "celebrity apprentice" contestants. john was my mentor in my appearance as president's final
5:06 am
season on the program. we saw that donald trump on a regular basis. i like that. when the president is that inclusive, that is a good thing. it makes his critics look foolish. jedediah: i agree with you, i like that side of president trump. there was enormous contrast, president trump giving unifying message, 2020 democrats actively on the campaign trail, attacking trump, attacking his salute to america, basically saying stuff that wasn't even in it. >> donald trump i believe is incapable of celebrating what makes america great because he doesn't get it. >> i hope the pavement will not buckle in washington, d.c. >> it is all about trump, not my brothers and sisters who lost their lives in service for this country. >> he is having parade for himself. >> i'm not sure we need to spend money to put tanks in downtown washington, d.c. >> we have to put him in place.
5:07 am
it is not about him. ed: bernie talking about spending money. he doesn't want spend money. >> any of his money. your money. pete: they said he would be political. then they go out and bash him on the 4th of july. >> you didn't have kamala harris calling him a predator. i just think that they will miss the boat. if they think that america is going to go forward with a sourpuss, paranoid and frightened despite their best efforts, i think they will be sorely misadvised. this is the way i believe to move forward from this point. let's celebrate what unites us. the united states military, its long history, that was the star of the show yesterday. those flyovers were quite impressive. you had the raptors and b-2s, and so forth, it was really to watch it, you know, you feel pride. everybody love as parade.
5:08 am
i remember as a guy growing up on long island and seeing parades in small hometowns across the country as reporter, see veterans in various conflicts march by, they're with the kids and scouts. everybody celebrates it all together. that i think he, president trump, hit the right tone and his, the detractors seem annoying and petty in contrast. that is the way i saw it. pete: well-said. i remember the parades myself as a kid. they have an impact. you see what your society reverse. ed: meantime you have a colin kaepernick. we talked about the nike shoes. he decided to speak out on july 4th. what do i or those that represent to do with your national independence. the 4th of july is yours not mine, there not a nation on earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloodily than our
5:09 am
people of these united states at this very hour. frederick douglas. this was in 1852 and before the civil war. we made enormous strides to protecting civil rights of everybody. douglas was not anti-american. he was rightly and passionately anti-slavery. does ted cruz has a point? >> he absolutely does. selective editing of history does nobody any good. colin kaepernick is criticizing, for example, the betsy ross flag. as i understand it, i'm not a reels statute student of american history but betsy ross was a quaker. the quakers were in the lead of the abolitionist movement. the quakers, were, always been anti-slavery. they have been in the forefront of the women's movement. they have been not forefront of many civil rights struggles in our nation's history. betsy ross, you know, the upholstery maker who sewed the
5:10 am
flag according to american legend, that is to me exactly why her flag should be celebrated. you know, for him to use kind of like sordid version of american history, either intentionally, or through lack of knowledge, and to criticize that symbol that flies proudly, proudly over the betsy ross home in philadelphia, my family and i were just there visiting independence hall, i think it is really a misstep. you know, colin kaepernick, to his credit sells sneakers. he seems a sincere person. nike on the other hand seems a corporation that is so intent on being woke that they do, you know, steps like this, willy-nilly, to be politically correct in all cases forever. i think it is unfortunate. again divisive, it is unnecessary. as i said, with her being a quaker, misstates american history. jedediah: geraldo, why at this point does colin kaepernick have so much influence over nike?
5:11 am
>> jedediah, that is a great question. i don't think that we can discount his sincerity. i think colin kaepernick believes what he -- pete: he said it was about police brutality why he originally protested. was it actually about the flag to begin with? >> let me get to jedediah's, if i can her, essence of, my answer to her question. i think that bottom line is, as recent history shows, colin kaepernick sells sneakers. he sells product. he moves nike's shoes in a way that other endorsers have not heretofore. so in a way this is the best example of american capitalism. nike put aside their, you know, their pretense to whatever the noble motive is. they want to sell more shoes. they have got a guy selling shoes. i think if you look at it, yes, okay, he is a good guy, he means well, but he also sells sneakers. if he didn't sell sneakers i bet you bottom dollar you wouldn't
5:12 am
see them hustling to get betsy ross' flag off the sneakers. pete: they could have sold those sneakers. a lot of americans would love to buy the shoes. >> amen to that. >> geraldo, good advice to all of us. stay woke he says. pete: maybe stay asleep. ed: he said stay woke. i'm quoting him. geraldo, appreciate it. serious news to get to with carley. carley: we begin with a fox news alert. seven americans killed in a helicopter crash near the bahamas. the chopper was heading to fort lauderdale, florida, when it went down killing everyone down. west virginia justice confirms coal tycoon, chris kline was among those killed. he called him a great great west virginian. no one else was identified. aftershocks in california. usgs confirming one a few minutes ago with a magnitude of

♪ jedediah: welcome back. some quick headlines for you. the 4th of july getting a an early start forcing firefighters to dodge rockets.
5:27 am
fireworks exploding out of control at a south carolina fireworks store. the fire appearing to spark in a storage unit nearby, destroying containers of fireworks. for the second time in three years a minor league baseball team fireworks show sparks a massive fire. the pyrotechnic issue just outside the st. lucie mets ballpark, didn't start the team from setting off the rest of their fireworks. they even played their scheduled game. luckily no one was hurt. over to you, pete. pete: as we celebrate our nation's independence, we remember this is the land of the free because of the brave. the american flag represents our freedom but it carries a heavy burden, the weight of its fallen defenders. those are the words of our next guest, retired navy see, former commander of navy seal team three, jocko willink. thanks for being with us her this morning. i read the op-ed. it was personal one.
5:28 am
you were in the honor guard of a navy seal lost on the battlefield, seth stone, you talk about what it means to fold the flag and deliver it. share it with our audience. >> i wrote the piece telling what is was like to give the flag to seth's mom. something many, many mom gone to delivering a flag to the fallen relatives and parents. it is one of the hard heft things i ever had to do. it is not about me. it is all about of as you that do that job, serve that duty. more important about the families that receive that flag in that horrible moment. pete: it is powerful and vivid imagery. check it out at, so well-written, not surprisingly from a great author like you. this piece wraps it together at the end. you wrote, my friend was buried in that sacred place, above it all, soaring in the sky was our flag. bearing upon it the weight of a million souls who gave their lives for it, yet it flies, and
5:29 am
yet i flies, carried aloft by its freedom and by pressures memories of those who gave us that freedom. at the end of the day, you come back to the flag? >> always. you know, when i see that flag, that is what it means to me. i remember holding that flag. i remember passing that flag to seth's mom. i remember seeing the tears in her ice. that is something i will never forget. every time i see the flag i remember all the men i lost in combat and all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for thin credible country. pete: the working title for your piece, the heaviest flag, you talk about the weight carrying that flag. share that feeling. >> again, this is something that no service member ever wants to do, but at the same time it's one of the biggest honors that i ever had was to pass that flag from seth's coffin to his mom
5:30 am
after the honor guard folded it. and the weight that you feel in that flag is something that i'll carry with me forever but, for me, passing that weight on to his mom was just incredibly powerful for me because i know that you know, this is her son who she raised and, you know, now she's, he is gone before she is. that is such an incredible burden. like i said this, is one example of thousands and thousands of families that have given their loved ones for this country. it is something that we should never forget. pete: a son she sacrificed on the altar of freedom you're precisely correct. when you talk about the flag, what about the inverse, how do you react with people disrespecting it or symbol of racism? you've seen the debates in our country. today, what do say to that? >> those are people don't really
5:31 am
understand the flag's history and they're looking something to make controversy b there is no controversy about the american flag. it will represent freedom. that is what it will always represent. pete: well-said. how does jocko willink recognize independence day? how do you celebrate it? >> i do what most americans do, spend time with me family, grill up some food and enjoy the freedoms we have every day. that is what i do. pete: big party for the greatest country on earth. jocko, thanks for your time. thanks for the op-ed on >> thanks, pete. pete: the june jobs report out moments ago. we'll bring you the numbers next. first, big and rich performing "8th of november".

5:36 am
pete: we are back with a fox news alert. and it's a big one. june jobs report released moments ago, 224,000. ed: that's right. added in the last month. that is more than economists predicted. susan li said the smart people were saying 160,000. jedediah: that's right. the unemployment rate rising slightly to 3.7%, up from 3.6% last month. overall looks good. we'll bring in peter morici, former u.s. economist for the u.s. international trade commission and a university of maryland professor emeritus. welcome, good morning to you. >> good morning. happy fourth. jedediah: happy fourth to you as well. what do you make of the job's numbers? >> it's a lollapalooza number. that's all i can say. the recovery is firing on all cylinders, it is great news. i don't know, they must be popping champagne early in the morning at the white house. the president couldn't get better news. pete: we were anticipating
5:37 am
160,000, 150,000, we heard it could be low as 100, people don't really know until the number comes. here it is double that. what does it tell you about this recovery? what is driving this number, peter? >> essentially people continue to spend money. the naysayers on the other side said the tax cut would be a one-off, that the consumer would sit on its hands once the first year passed by. mr. krugman, wake up, smell the coffee. they're out there spending. they're spending on different stuff than they used to. they don't buy the cars the way they used to do, they last so long. they're spending money on services. that is stuff they make right here. that is good for the domestic economy. businesses are investing in artificial intelligence which is very good news. ed: you mentioned krugman, paul krugman has been wrong on every turn of trump-nomics, the rise of donald trump. talk about joe biden in iowa yesterday. i heard a clip where he was telling the crowd, this is the
5:38 am
obama-biden economy. donald trump inherited this economy just like everything else in his life. he has to be waking up saying oh, gosh, he took the obama-biden economy, put it on steroids. >> mr. biden is contortionist. he managed to be out of step with his own party. he managed to be out of step with the trump administration. most importantly what americans have to recognize is that mr. biden is out of step with reality. you simply cannot attribute this economy to barack obama when during the obama years, we grew at less than 2%. now we're growing at nearly 3%. we're getting 50% more growth, wages are up, the stock market is up. you know, these are all good things. why does he have to insist that trump is a disaster when he simply isn't? this is like saying the new york yankees really play hockey in orlando, florida. jedediah: peter, democrat have to hit the campaign trail now. they are going to advocate for policies that are the direct
5:39 am
opposite of what has achieved this incredible growth. how is that going to work out for them? >> big lie technique has worked for them so far. they have most americans convinced they didn't get a tax cut when they did. they have more money in the take-home pay than 15 months ago. he have week in the paychex. they have them convinced this was a tax cut for the wealthy. they have them convinced more inequality thanks to these changes, when we don't. inequality is driven to some extent by the kind of automation we have these days and globalization. hey, guys, the democrats drove globalization pretty hard. donald trump is trying to fix that. pete: absolutely. if they want to play who did it better game, obama and trump. let's play it for a second. if you look at key swing states, florida, indiana, iowa, michigan, ohio, elsewhere, income growth which is key independent eight tore whether people have more money it their pocket, under obama, sub essentially than under trump. almost double in iowa.
5:40 am
across the board in the trump economy people's wallets are getting bigger. do you think, peter, they're smart enough to realize that? >> i think it is tough for folks to grasp numbers. the changes in the economy are gradual. you gradually get better. you gradually improve the circumstances. the real problem, the trump white house last something to do with this. the messages out of the council of economic advisors has been absent. there is all kinds of important things they should point out to the american people about the democratic platform, about the trump accomplishment that they're not. if, the white house has to improve its messaging. here i'm not talking about kudlow. that is the job of the council of economic advisors. frankly, it has been absent as joe biden. that is a real problem. ed: prodding the white house to do more. ask you something else following what pete and jed were talking about. i was in miami a week 1/2 ago
5:41 am
with the democratic candidate. one candidate kept telling me in the spin room after, yeah, unemployment low, wage is up, those are stats, people are not feeling it. i'm not saying i agree what they're saying. i'm running it past you. democrats believe, maybe wrongly, these are stats, jobs numbers, unemployment, people in the country are not feeling it, are they right? >> they should be feeling it. it is kind of tough to feel it, when you open the newspaper and put on the television, unless you view fox or read "the washington times," the fox website, you're constantly being told you're worse off. the stuff that i see in my inbox from bloomberg, from "the new york times," so forth, so many local papers have throw away lines, about inequality being worse and donald trump's policies making it worse and so forth. this is why. we need credible messaging with specifics from the white house to counteract this. not just the kind of generalizations i have given you
5:42 am
now. for example, why we add up what the democratic agenda would cost? socialized medicine, forgiving student loans, the whole list, everybody thinks that stuff will be wonderful, free, free, free. you would have to triple taxes. do you want taxes tripled? that is the kind of taxes they pay in europe. why isn't that messaging coming out? why did "the wall street journal" have to print the data you are citing right now as opposed to coming out of the white house? ed: bernie sanders said i would raise classes on middle class. jedediah: don't worry he says, peter, you will like it. this "qunnipiac poll," do you think president trump deserves credit for the state of the economy? 41% say he deserves credit. 27% say he doesn't. i understand about messaging, what people read, if you have more money in your pocket, buy more stuff, that is how you feel it in the everyday life the impact on it, no?
5:43 am
>> look at polls over the several last republican presidents, it is very easy for a republican president to do well at something to get 40, 42% approval on something he is doing. it is news when a republican president is getting above 48. that is re-election numbers. the real problem, what you just showed me the number of people didn't answer either way. that is a problem. it is like, you know, they have been on mars these last two years. ed: i know how they feel. >> try to find someone like me over at msnbc. you know what they do? scissor them between two liberals, peter, where did you get those numbers from? don't send anybody to the university of maryland. this is data printed in the book. it is that simple. for example, the stock market is not overpriced. the stock market is reflecting the prosperity of american business thanks to deregulation and lower taxes. they're making more money, which means americans iras,
5:44 am
retirements are brighter now than they used to be, their prospects are better. gee, what's wrong with that? that is not the rich pigging out. that is you having a secure future. ed: we checked the dow futures are down 100 points. i know the dow, sometimes there is bad news it goes up. it is good news, it goes down because somebody is reading, but is your read? >> those futures were down before the jobs report, a. b, several really up days. so today is the kind of day, a little bit of edge comes off. the other thing the jobs report like this does not incline the federal reserve to cut interest rates. ed: right. >> so the market will day-to-day behave in ways that don't seem to reflect the economic reality. over the long haul though, if the economy is doing well, profits do well and the market does well, you showed data earlier in the show as i recall, maybe that was over at fox business. we get two monitors in the green room, how much -- kind of hard
5:45 am
for an economist to grasp two monitors. ed: one monitor on the other monitor. >> exactly. we're not that smart. that's why we're economists. if we were smarter we would be accountants and physicians. in any case look how much the market is up during mr. trump's 10 your. the reason for that is a very strong economy and his policies have had something to do with that. they need to start messaging that much better. pete: well-said. peter, you're a smart guy. is peter morici smarter than all of us on the couch? ed: fact. jedediah: fact. pete: it is true. peter thanks very much for reacting to the monster job numbers. ed: fact, carley shimkus is here as well. carley: i live peter morici. he is the best. a fire in first class forces a packed plane to make an emergency landing in boston. police say a phone charger started sparking, it set a
5:46 am
passenger seat on fire. this happened on a virgin atlantic flight heading to london from new york's jfk airport. 217 passengers were loaded on to buses and taken to the terminal. no one was hurt. they are now waiting for another flight. two families filing a wrongful death suit after the wrong man was taken off life-support. this man, was misidentified as alfonso bennett when he was brought into a hospital of the patient had a severely beaten face. police used a mug shot to identify him. the mixup became clear after the real bennett showed up to a family party shocking his loved ones who were grieving is supposed death. wow. car owners in north carolina now have a new option when they get their license plate. look at this. the dmv now offering one with the words, in god we trust. a 2018 law cleared the way to create a new option with the national motto. car owners can request the new plate at no additional charge

when they renew their registration. i knew that was pete applauding. we love that. listen to this, joey jaws chestnut wins is 18th nathan's contest devouring 71 in ten minutes. >> four, three, two, one, begin. carley: he fell short of his own record last record of 74 hotdogs. >> heat got in my way a little bit. about five minutes in i slowed down way more than i ever hoped. i got the win. jedediah: part of the "fox & friends" family, he made an appearance on this very show a couple years ago where he went head-to-head or dog to dog with pete. pete, how did you do? >> not well. jedediah: did you dunk it in the water? pete: i tried to dunk. carley: it gets stuck in your mouth. ed: i guess you're not the top
