tv   Hannity  FOX News  July 10, 2019 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT

6:00 pm
we are out of time tonight. we will be back tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. the sworn and sincere enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and especially groupthink, which is everywhere. sean hannity is live from new york. stay tuned. >> sean: the show that is loved by every congresswoman and man in washington, he tucker carlson show. >> tucker: amen! >> sean: buckle up, welcome to "hannity" ," new information abt the dirty dossiers author, christopher steele. we will also bring you some good news for lieutenant general michael flynn, and his battle against the witch hunt, which continues. first, we start with bob mueller. next wednesday, the captain of the witch hunt himself, well, he scheduled to appear before congress in his first and only public hearing. democrats on the intel and judiciary committees are demanding that mueller testify. according to our own, he is saying these very same democrats are now worried that this political stunt is about to
6:01 pm
backfire and boomerang. wow, that has happened a lot, and for good reason. in his only public comments, rambling contradictory 9-minute presser, robert mueller stated d on any of his findings. he said the written report will be his only testimony. we are talking about the very same report that cleared the president of collusion, conspiracy with russia and didn't charge him with any obstruction. by the way, he was not charged with obstruction. the deputy attorney general, office of legal counsel all said no, didn't happen. meanwhile, mueller is certainly going to face a very crucial questions from republicans. questions i would like to have answered and we are going to preview those important questions in a minute. this now comes as a reporter is now out that the doj is blocking house democrats from questioning two members of mueller's partisan team in a closed-door hearing. here with more, chad pergram is with us.
6:02 pm
what is the latest? it's because there was a meeting tonight by democrats on the house judiciary committee trying to figure out the structure of this hearing with bob mueller nt week. there is an old saying on capitol hill that nothing is decided until everything is decided. what we do know is that there is going to be a two hour hearing for members of the judiciary committee at 9:00, there will be a break and then they are coming back with members of the intelligence committee. the question is, is this enough time? it was very interesting seeing members coming out of this closed-door meeting saying everything is in flux, things haven't been decided yet. we have been told by multiple democrats that they are still negotiating with bob mueller's team about the structure of this. members really didn't want to talk as they came out. they were deferring to jerry nadler, the chair of the judiciary committee, and many, lou correa, a democrat from california, another democrat from washington state, both of them said that some of this may not be resolved until the day of the hearing.
6:03 pm
partial pal, freshman democrat from florida. if you cut this down to two hours and two hours, there are some questions about whether the freshman and junior members would get a chance to ask questions. one said, well, i hope so. the other thing that is still up in the air here is that there would be a closed-door session. eric swalwell, a member of california and the intelligence committee. the problem for democrats here, if mueller just sticks to the four corners of the reported doesn't go beyond that, have democrats overplayed this question right there is another expression here, caveat emptor, buyer beware. maybe this turns out to be pretty boring if robert mueller is just going through dogeared pages and reading back when he is getting questions. could that undermine the hype in some ways? and that is what some of us here at fox news who have been reporting on this, we've heard that mueller might be a little bit reluctant to testify, or there might be an effort to limit or curtail his testimony.
6:04 pm
but we are told that he is on for 9:00 next wednesday morning. >> sean: all right, we will be watching next thursday. let's be clear. bob mueller, he is not a king. he is employed by we the american people. the american people also deserve answers to other questions. for a few questions i think mueller must answer, why did he hire a team with no republicans? only big democratic donors quest required is he hire clinton's former attorney? why did he hire the guy, oh, yeah, sidney powell exposed the ever so overzealous prosecutor, mueller's pit bull andrew weissmann to lead the investigation. after all, he was at the clinton election night party that never happened, likely sobbing with everyone else there. he has an atrocious track record of withholding exculpatory evidence, numerous cases overturned, convictions overturned because of exculpatory evidence withheld, and also, why did mueller have time to investigate medallions,
6:05 pm
loan applications, tax fraud, but not fisa abuse and not a paid for a russian dossier? if he cared about russian interference, and in the 2016 elections, why did he then not have any probe into hillary clinton's and dirty dossiers? the one with russian lies, the one that was disseminated to the american people to influence the election. now, where was the deep dive into the ex-foreign spy, christopher steele? what about fusion gts? their connections to unsavory characters around the world and their founder, glenn simpson. when did mueller determined that there was no trump-russia collusion? why didn't he stop then? why did the investigation continue after that contradiction and why did mueller contradict himself during his nine and half in a press conference? remember those special counsel claimed there was no obstruction. he said that you numerous people. then at the presser, he suggested there might've been obstruction but a sitting president cannot be charged
6:06 pm
because the doj policy. that was when he released a joint statement with attorney general barr's office that there was no chargeable obstruction. regardless of doj policy and the ability to charge a sitting president. so why the confusion, why the change? who wrote those words? who wrote the report? were you being told what to say by andrew weissmann, your pitbull? because the whole witch hunt was a disaster from beginning to end. a major distraction from real abuses of power taking place right under your nose. just look at the froth of that took place surrounding the fisa warrant. your buddy jim comey signed it, the first one. against the trump associate, carter page, and that gave them a backdoor to spy into all things trump campaign. then trump transition, then the trump presidency, and as "the daily caller" points out, the bureau's desperate attempt to acquire a warrant were totally stalled until steele dossier came along. deputy fbi director andrew mccabe said it perfectly.
6:07 pm
no dossier, no fisa warrant. james comey and company were so desperate to find that backdooro the trump campaign, yes, mr. comey, to spy -- that they used phony unverifiable campaign clinton bought and paid for op research full of russian lies. that was to obtain a warrant to spy on an american citizen and an entire presidential campaign. and according to "the new york times," investigators working for the ig's probe into fisa abuse, they asked christopher steele, "whether the bureau was overly reliant on the russian expertise of outsiders like himself." and christopher steele told them that he believed the fbi was probably underequipped to judge the inherently murky intelligence that he was relating. i don't believe that is true, either." the times" says that he added his own interpretation to his own sources that he passed on to
6:08 pm
your christopher steele, calling into question the reliability of all this information. by the way, they were all warned about it before he signed it in 2016, the one he swore was verified and true, the one in three months later he told president trump's unverified and salacious. in other words, a so-called intelligence and the dossier was sourced with second, third hand information. all turned out to be false, and perhaps just completely made up or maybe as "the new york times" previously suggested, it was russian misinformation all along. along. by james comey, others swore tht their intelligence was true and accurate. that is broad, plain and simple. premeditated conspiracy to commit fraud on a fisa court to spy on an opposition party candidate to help one campaign went and the other campaign lose, then it became an insurance policy, as we all learned months later. but despite high-ranking government officials turning the most powerful tools of
6:09 pm
intelligence that we need to keep us safe against enemies, foreign and domestic, well, they turn them on the trump campaign and other american citizens and the transition team, and on the trump presidency. we have four separate russian collusion investigations, all four cleared the president of any wrongdoing. if there is no more ambiguity, there are no questions to ask anymore. as democrats are now conducting the fifth and sixth investigations into collusion, so-called collusion that didn't happen. the only collision that happened was hillary clinton's dirty dossier. that is how democrats are spending your tax dollars. there is nothing more, at this point, then presidential harassment and abuse of power by them. people like jerry nadler, leading these brand-new probes, wasting the country's time and they are now having innocent american citizens that have to once again lawyer, they are going bankrupt in some places as they are called to answer the same questions for fourth, fifth, sixth time
6:10 pm
and they better answer it perfectly, the way they did the last time or else they will determine that that is perjury. then they will be charged with that and they will need more lawyers. my advice to all those people that willingly testify to congress, that cooperated with the mueller probe? you can plead the fifth, and you know what? it won't cost you a dime. you don't have to hire any more lawyers, can stand up to this abuse of power. jerry nadler and adam schiff, they are no longer lawmakers, this isn't oversight, this is now them merely content creators for, well, oh, yeah, msdn c and braswell rachel maddow's nonstop anti-trump conspiracy hours. it is every second, every minute, every hour over there. democrats, what they are doing should sicken every american. tonight, thankfully, the president can declare victory in at least one frivolous legal proceeding. today, the fourth circuit court of appeals throughout a far left
6:11 pm
challenge surrounding the trump organization. joining us now with more details is the president's attorney, jay sekulow and full disclosure, he has had a minor client in the name of sean hannity. but i am a good client. how are you, sir? speak of very good >> sean: trump international, the first thing the judge said, why are you here, you have no standing to be here in this court as it relates to trump international being in d.c. >> look, this was an ongoing case of presidential harassment. in this president has taken more incoming on these kinds of frivolous issues than anybody i think certainly in american history. the nature and scope of the actions that are taken in court are frankly something we have never seen. but here, the fourth circuit court of appeals not only dismissed the case but that exactly what you just said. why are you here? in fact, i'm going to read from the opinion because the opinion speaks volumes.
6:12 pm
when before the court they are unable to specify the belief they see, one must wonder why tr relief in the first place. and that is because, again the court said, the deficiency here had manifested oral argument, the district of columbia and maryland, upon being questioned repeatedly were unable to articulate the terms of an injunction that the district of maryland were seeking to address the alleged violations. that is when the court said, why are you here in the first place customers than the court says, maryland and the district attorneys are trying to enforce the clause of some kind of wrongdoing here, and the court says their claim was attenuated and abstract, that tr prosecution of this case regularly provokes the question whether this action against the president is an appropriate use of course, which were created to resolve real cases and controversies between parties. then the course dismissed the case with prejudice. this ongoing presidential
6:13 pm
harassment, whether it is trying to get tax returns, or a recently now, california saying you cannot be on the ballot unless you release your tax returns if you're running for president of the united states, which not only is absurd but completely unconstitutional. the constitution sets forth the parameters of the requirements of what you must have, possess, natural born citizen, 35 years of age, to be running for the president of the united states. the states can't add to those requirements, which is what california has done. what is fascinating about that case, which we will be in court challenging very soon, the previous governor, jerry brown vetoed the law because he said it was unconstitutional. i never thought i would say this, jerry brown is absolutely correct. the laws unconstitutional. but this is ongoing presidential harassment, new york state passing there, we are going to give you the president's state tax returns, than the house as we don't want that.
6:14 pm
why question rank because it is going to show the subterfuge of what this was all about. they are trying to get the president's tax returns and this is what they are saying. they are checking to see if the irs is actually engaged in the appropriate oversight and audits of the president in their irs capacity. you think they would ask the irs exactly what the audit procedures are question regulated now. what if they ask for? the president's tax returns. which president? donald trump. did they ask for president bush's tax returns? >> sean: the state tax returns could be handed over to congressional committees now. they want those tax returns in the worst way. >> pure presidential harassment. it is illegal, unconstitutional. the idea that you would add special legislation to impact one person who happens to be the commander in chief shows political animus, that is what we say in the law, that is in
6:15 pm
our view illegal and unconstitutional. but it is part of a pattern. there is a pattern of practice here that you see going on. you're right, the mueller report comes out, no obstruction, and occlusion. then what we do? we will have these hearings. they've had two so far, what happened with those customers nobody tuned in. why did nobody tune in question work because the report itself is incomprehensible. that is just a fact. if you read it, most people haven't, i have. it is incomprehensible. why? because the legal theories being put forward, and people ignore this part. bob mueller in his report says we don't make a conclusion here of criminal acts paid we do not find it work or criminal acts. there is something very important here. they said it is difficult questions of law. when you find difficult questions of law, guess what you don't do, you don't bring a case. but again, this is part of the ongoing presidential harassment. back-and-forth, which we did in the fourth circuit and we continue to do it. >> sean: we were manned with
6:16 pm
instructions to dismiss the complaint with prejudice. it's over. full victory. >> 100%. >> sean: the plane landed in that case. good to see appear tonight, more good news from a federal court. u.s. district judge also smacked down the dnc's request to designate michael flynn a coconspirator in an ongoing case against his business partner. two cans berating in other words lie about what the federal government wanted him to lie about and give testimony he can consider to be false, but with an update, fox news reporter sara carter, that is a. >> is huge, late last night judge anthony trinka issued what they call an 11th hour hail mary appear to 38 page report that was basically scathing to the government. saying you haven't presented enough evidence to show or to prove that michael flynn is a
6:17 pm
coconspirator in this case. he basically been calling him a cooperating witness from the beginning. unless you show me something, unless you give me some evidence to show that he is a coconspirator, we are not going to do it. he also stated in his brief and in his opinion that the government had no evidence whatsoever that the government of turkey paid the michael flynn intel group. remember, this is what this was all about. his partner is now in trial and this is what this is all about. they want flynn to testify against his partner but then they backed away from that this week, saying they are not going to have him testify and try to designate him a coconspirator. all because they want him to compose. i can tell you that according to defense attorneys, sidney powell is leading the case here, he is cooperating fully with the government and he will continue
6:18 pm
to cooperate. >> sean: all right, sara carter, investigative reporter, thank you. ranking member house intel committee, devin nunes. let me go back, this came up with judge ellis in the first trial of paul manafort paul manafort. what was that? we know why we are really here, you want to put the screws to this guy paul manafort, that is why you are dragging up all tax returns. you don't care about that, let's be honest. so you can get the president. now we have this new filing by sidney powell, the new attorney for lieutenant general flynn saying yeah, they wanted him to say this. i have a problem with overzealous prosecutors offering something of value, freedom, to say what they want you to say. that comment to me, would be bribery in any other circumstance, and a very dangers offer for anybody that is facing jail time. >> if that is what this entire investigation has been about. it was an obstruction trap set for the president. you had people that were put under investigation like
6:19 pm
general flynn, likely even before, back in the obama era days but for sure, at some point they brought up these bogus charges and had some russian girlfriend. i think there is a very interesting case that has been filed in virginia where the supposed russian girlfriend is suing many companies for libel and defamation because she had nothing to do with general flynn, then at the end of the day, it was get flynn for saying that he lied even though the inspector and investigator said that he didn't lie. let's not forget over all of that, you have one of the biggest leaks in u.s. history, raw intelligence, transcripts of general flynn talking to the russian ambassador. >> sean: let me go to these new developments. the attorney general suggested we would expect the inspector general report on fisa abuse in mid-may but now we have last-minute developments, as we've been reporting. catherine herridge has been reporting, and others. one is the people that weren't willing to talk are now willing to talk. others that did talk, my sources telling me they decided they wanted to go back and get more
6:20 pm
details. i assume they were thinking they were in trouble. now christopher steele, 15 hours. christopher steele, i can't imagine, would contradict testimony he gave under oath under the threat of perjury, and that case the inaugural torrey in great britain. i don't see that, do you? >> i don't and that is what is taking the inspector general longer. the interview with christopher steele and then the top level number two at the state department and the europen division, who, we finally found her notes. this is kathleen cadillac, so in her notes, clearly now we know in the inspector knows that steele had problems with his credibility long before they went to spy on carter page. that is what is slowing down the process. >> sean: he mentioned kathleen, that is almost two weeks before james comey signed the fisa warrant. but we know the fbi, doj, we
6:21 pm
know everyone was born in augus. before the first fisa warrant signed by james comey. that means they were born hillary paid for it. they should've put a big, bold headline in neon lights for the judges and defies a case in the application. they didn't. but we know from steele's testimony under oath, it is an unverifiable document. the bottom line is -- >> let me try to tie this all together. let's go back to the store that just broke yesterday. forgo favorable stories about steele, supposedly some sources who know the matter, that means it is himself talking to reporters that steele was a cooperating witness. we also know the fbi has told congress that they didn't know anything about the steele dossier until september, 2016. another lie because we know from the interviews with bruce ohr and others and even andrew weissmann, the pitbull for mueller, that he was actually briefed on the dossiers in 2016. there is a lot here for the
6:22 pm
inspector general to get a hold of but what really needs to happen is the u.s. attorney in connecticut needs to get all this information quickly as possible and then interview all these people under oath in front of a grand jury. >> sean: devin nunes, ranking member, house until community, thank you. one of the great things about life television is in the middle of the show somebody can text you and say sean, i think your flag is upside down and i get to fix it. not on purpose, i promise. we respect old glory. coming up, more investigations. media trying to tie president trump to the convicted jeffrey epstein, but they ignore the clinton connections. wait until they hear the connections he does have. later, an all-out war breaking out. congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez, public feud with pelosi is escalating in a circular firing squad forming a day has gone to a whole new level. we will break the news straight

♪ >> sean: the jeffrey epstein case, watching it unfold before our eyes. the liberal hate-trump media, doing their very best to link trump to epstein and the atrocious claims and allegations. however their claims are actually the opposite of the truth, court documents claiming in fact the president banned epstein from mar-a-lago after an alleged assault on an underage girl at the club. that was years ago. meanwhile, the labor secretary alexander acosta, the u.s. attorney for florida at the time that epstein was tried and secured a lenient plea deal in '08, he is defending his role in the case as the literal meaning tried to use it to bludgeon the trump administration. this, as a 1995 report is
6:28 pm
resurfacing today, shows that bill clinton, interesting the media didn't care in 2016 when they want to bill clinton's wife to be the president. bill clinton dined with epstein years before the official statement claims, and we already know that the flight logs show the former president, he was on the lolita express, as the new york post dubbed epstein plane, 26 times. now the media mob is scrambling to turn it around on trump because they want an appearance for their fellow liberals. author of the book "small pores," from former florida attorney general, pam bondi. let's look at the press conference today, maybe you can explain the legal aspects of this because all these kids in "the new york post" ," what was described as predator, behavior.
6:29 pm
why did the local prosecutor go after him and when the feds got after him, or were they able to do or not do and was this really a sweetheart deal? >> until you have walked in the shoes of a sex crimes prosecutors it is difficult to comment on these cases and i have four years. first of all, i'm going to defend him, too. what he did was take it to a grand jury. all these victims -- and a grand jury only hears evidence most favorable to the prosecution. he had a grand jury, sean, still came back with only one count. that shows how difficulties cases are. and alex acosta in the fbi, they jumped in to try to help. they jumped in and tried to help prosecute him. >> sean: if you have these young girls think this happened, this happened, this data. others corroborating the coordination of meeting these young girls, then the testimony
6:30 pm
of people on the flight with young girls were on the flight as well. he would think that that would be powerful testimony. >> i've been there where sex crimes prosecutors, two separate ones, have tried cases much better than these two proof and lost of them. these guys walked scot-free. by the way, the woman is still in the u.s. attorney's offense in south florida who was in charge of this. she is a bulldog tough prosecutor, to this day, she suggested the 18 month lee along with the fbi, and the best part about it was to guarantee that this pedophile is deemed as a sex offender, for the rest of his life. they have no idea the department of corrections would let him out on work release, which is horrible, and let him out early. >> sean: the southern district of new york is long known as one of the toughest prosecute -- i mean some of the best lawyers have come out of there.
6:31 pm
rudy, mccarthy, real prosecutors. >> and now they have new evidence. >> sean: in the new evidence being what they found in the safe? let's go to the media side of it. jeffrey lord, we have all of this information in 2016, the media doesn't want to touch it. i get one little clue that epstein new donald trump and they are running it. what they don't tell the truth, trump was the guy that found out about something and threw him the hill out of mar-a-lago. they kind of missed that big part of the story. speak at this is one more attempt to get the president, that is basically what this is. combined with something else, i think there was a real panic in the democratic establishment. this business of going after alex acosta i think it is designed. chuck schumer took thousands of dollars from this guy for his congressional antenna campaigns. is he being asked to resign? where is the pressure for that? what about the clintons and the clinton foundation, the clinton global initiative that he was so
6:32 pm
involved in? are they going to give him money back? what about all the other democratic politicians? they've really got a problem on their hands. i think this is harvey weinstein times ten and they are going to have to deal with it. that is why they are desperately flailing to pin the blame on president trump when there are court documents out there saying he threw him out. >> sean: when you look at what the southern district of new york has, do you see that they have a case? >> i think they have a very strong case now that they have all the photographs, they did the raid on his apartment, and ironically, that conviction, that registered sex offender, even though he served a short time, that can be used in a new case against him, so that is even more powerful now and this guy needs to be buried under jail for the rest of his life. >> sean: why was bill clinton -- we already know bill clinton's history. monica lewinsky was pretty young at the time, she was an intern in the white house white house.

when asked about the infighting, pelosi told "the washington post," i have no regrets about anything. regrets is not what i do. hours ago when ocasio-cortez was asked if she would tone down her twitter use, she replied bluntly, no. according to the daily mail. and it doesn't stop there. according to an interview with the new yorker, ocasio-cortez was asked about her relationship with pelosi. she didn't hold back at all. take a listen to this. >> what is your relationship like with nancy pelosi? tell me how that works, one of the dynamics of it? >> you know, i think sometimes people think that we have this like, we have a relationship. >> are you saying you don't? >> not particularly. not one that is i think, distinguished from anyone else else. we are assigned to two of the busiest committees and subcommittees, so my hands are full. >> sean: now, like usual, the

6:41 pm
raised some questions with respect to that. >> sean: what does this all mean? it means every times pelosi tries to grab her gravel back of the fight is only going to intensify. as i've been saying, speaker in name only. every blunder joe biden makes, the new extreme freshman democrs are going to be there to jump all over him. remember, they are the ones, they are setting the agenda, they are pushing a platform that is actually being adopted by all the 2020 democrats, like saying walls and borders are immoral, you should take them down. amnesty, abolish i.c.e. today, ocasio-cortez suggested getting rid of the department of homeland security. that's brilliant. enacting health insurance for illegal immigrants. who is going to pay for that? abolishing private insurance for american citizens. free college, free retirement, free child care, free health care, government guaranteed healthy food, and a job even if you are unwilling to work. by the way, no oil, no gas, we will get rid of planes, fossil

viewers, you want open borders, entitlements, extraordinarily high taxes that will chase everyone out of america. it is impractical, logical, destructive, dangerous, and it will literally destroy the economy if ever they attempt to implement it. pelosi and joe biden have no power over this new radical win. the party will move further and further left and further away from the views of common sense americans. one other big problem, the trump economy, the best employment situation since 1969, record low unemployment for african-americans, asian-americans, hispanic-americans, women in the workplace and youth employment. that was important because when i was young and had a job it kept me out of a lot of trouble. joining me now with reaction, the house minority leader kevin mccarthy. from your vantage point and from the president's vantage point, if they want to run on the new green deal and everything is free, you can't have private insurance, we are going to pay for illegal immigrants' health insurance, we are going to tear down all border wall's and then

man, the night newt gingrich became the speaker. the 25th anniversary this year of the contract with america. and i'm thinking, house republicans kind of do a better job than senate republicans, and terms of trying to help the president and his agenda. maybe it would be a good idea to put the top ten items on paper, nationalize the election, you would be the next speaker of the house, mitch mcconnell would run and win in kentucky, easily. then we would have promises that can help the president so he doesn't have to do all the heavy lifting by himself, which too often i think is the case. >> exactly. this president has to do so muc much. but the house republicans are with this president. the promises he has made in the campaign, this is where america is so surprised. he is one of the first presidents that is kept his promises his promises. >> sean: a shocking. >> he has kept more promises than he made. but we should put it on paper, we should tell the american public what he should accomplish and we have to battle socialism

because it is overtaking, not just what the democratic party used to be, but they are trying to challenge and take over this country. >> sean: it ought to be consensus, white house, your house, and the senate. we do that, you make the promises and to keep promises, it's an amazing thing. the american people like politicians when they keep their word. if keeping your word is good politics. you get to stay in power, which is seems most people want when you get there. kevin mccarthy, good to see you. thank you. when we come back, you can't believe this story. city council, minnesota, banning the pledge of allegiance. unbelievable. we sent lauren jones to the e what residents think of that. breaking news tonight, fox news tonight confirming the iranian revolutionary guard earlier trying to seize a british ship. we will have a live report, stay with us. now that you have new dr. scholl's massaging gel advanced insoles with softer, bouncier gel waves,

♪ >> sean: protest, the st. louis park, minnesota, city council reconsidering a decision to do away with the president dominic pledge of allegiance before meetings. the council claimed it was creating a more welcoming environment to a diverse community by getting ready to make rid of the pledge. i think we can all agree that we live in the greatest country god gave man but apparently not. we sent lawrence jones to st. louis park to ask people they are what they thought. that council, take a look. >> in st. louis park, they are getting rid of the pledge of allegiance before the city council meetings. how do you feel about this? >> pretty horrible. aren't we a part of a government that should be doing that? >> people have a right to express their opinions about. >> i don't have to say the pledge of allegiance. i want respect being taught to

else in the network. but seriously, there should be one thing we agree on but it is not the case. there has always been the blame america first crowd. now there is the hate america contingency out there and i'm trying to understand why. what country with a prefer we model? >> yes, we are sitting here right now outside of st. louis city hall behind us where patriots descended there and said look, it only takes 15 seconds to say the pledge of allegiance. obviously this is a liberal town, so you have reaction. some liberal said we want to get the pledge of allegiance, some of them says it is discriminatory towards citizens in this country. to the line is this, we have issues in america but at the end of the day, we should be united on the causes of america. it's the constitution that gives us so much protection.

this starts on the college campuses. there is a growing movement of professors and academics teaching these young people and the public at large to hate america. >> sean: they don't even teach american history. speak out and it's such a slanted view. >> sean: look at the reaction for the president and his fourth of july honoring of america. that's the military that beat communism, fascism, imperial japan and nazism, and i'm thinking wow, have we really forgotten that this country is as great -- there has never been a country in the history of man that has accumulated more power and abused it less than the united states? we are not perfect and i would add there has never been a country that has accumulated more power and used it to advance the human condition then this one. you can't say a pledge? >> that is exactly right. there is a disturbing trend we keep on seeing and we have to wonder where we are right now.

we can't even say the pledge of allegiance? what is it about the pledge of allegiance that infuriates people so much? liberty and justice for all -- for all, not for some people, but for all. how that is not inclusive and diverse is beyond me. we have to get to this point where we start to appreciate who we are as americans and what brings us together. it is not necessarily geographic area, it is not skin color, religion, ethnicity, it is the red, white, and blue beard and there are certain things that connect us appear to some of those things are the pledge of allegiance, the national anthem, we have to recognize those traditions, they matter. speak at the bottom line is where are these people going to go if they are not going to be in america? you can't get freedom here, what is the next country that is going to defend all the other nations? >> sean: thank you both. breaking now, iranian aggression escalating this time against great britain. we will have a live update ahead. at visionworks, we guarantee you'll see great
