♪ please come home for christmas. ♪ please come home for christmas. ♪ if not for christmas. ♪ by new year's night. >> pull up about 3:30, 4:00 in the morning and see that hashtag, fox all american christmas. >> in our square right now, the music plays 24 hours a day, it's absolutely stunning outside. we hope if you're near the area, come, take photos of yourself and post it using the hashtag -- >> i heard you singing over the
3:01 am
words. that was aaron neville. i like to think i can do a decent aaron neville impression. his album is amazing. ♪ please come home for christmas. >> that's what i live for, right there. ♪ if not for christmas, by new year's night. >> we can do this all hour. >> we know you all can't get her to manhattan, please send us your pictures, hashtag, fox all american christmas. what are you doing to decorate your christmas tree, we want to know about it. >> three, four, five days away -- four days away. >> we know your -- >> we'll stick with the budget stories and let pete do space -- >> there's a big budget story today. >> we want to send pete to space for a long time on this program. the president getting his way with space force. the first new military branch in
3:02 am
over 70 years. >> you've got the army, navy, marine corps, air force, coast guard and now officially the space force. what will they be called? if you're in the marine corps, you're a marine. in the space force, what are you called? it's the first in 706 year 7 --s to be created. the president is talking about the creation. here it is, listen. >> we officially integrate the newest branch of our military, this is a very big and important moment. it's called the space force. think of that. we will create a brand-new american military service at such a momentous -- that's such a momentous statement. it's a big moment and we're all
3:03 am
here for it. space, going to be a lot of things happening in space. of course, space is the world's newest war-fighting domain. amid grave threats to our national security, american superiority in space is absolutely vital. >> pete said it. it's been mocked for it but it's interesting because china is big in space and this is -- it's looking down the road at some of the threats. >> i keep thinking to myself, what an exciting time to be here right now. it's been over 70 years since the creation of a new element of a new force and i think we should call them space soldiers. >> space soldiers. >> i think so. >> how about super troopers? whatever you call them, they'll have a cool name. satellites, communications, global positioning systems, all the things we use on the modern battlefield are predicated on space. if you don't control that and someone else is weaponizing it, the minute the next conflict starts you're on your heels, you're in the dark. so being ahead of china and russia there is critically
3:04 am
important. so space force is just one of many of the president's victories in the middle of this impeachment battle where maybe a lot of people in the mainstream media haven't noticed but on top of space forces gotten new funding for the wall and the economy is in a strong position, is now rock t eting might be the -- rocketing might be the word to take it back to space force. >> neil cavuto said i sound like a broken record but yet again here we are at the record close on the dow, on the s&p, and on the nasdaq. so as we head into christmas week, all three of those indices were up big-time yesterday yet again and when you listen to people who are looking forward into 2020 if this china deal lands the way it could, there's no reason why 30,000 isn't possible on the dow as well. >> what struck me really -- in a way, we've been he desensitized to the winning and hearing here's a you new record, that it took over 100 years to gain the first 10,000, that
3:05 am
increment and we did it again. that's that level of as you said, the rocketing, that's the pace that we are seeing here and it's really a an incredible time. >> up 10,000 points since president trump was inaugurated. >> that's giving the democrats who are running for the president's job a tough time explaining what they would do differently to make the economy better when it's going so strong. even a cnn poll finding when asked how would you raise the economic conditions of the done you tri today, 76% of the public says good. that's the highest level since february of -- >> is that a fox poll or breitbart poll? >> cnn poll. >> cnn talked to the folks and 76% of americans saying they feel great or good about the economy and they had to admit that on the air? >> they did. there was a debate on cnn where former vice be president joe biden was asked about the economy and he stumbled around
3:06 am
about what would you do differently and he talked about how the middle class is not feeling it and the middle class is in bad shape. a, the polls suggest that people don't believe that. b, you were there with barack obama for eight years. if the middle class is suffering, what did you do during those two terms? >> remember, the economy, it's 70% -- the economy is 70% driven by consumers. it doesn't surprise me that so many consumers feel positively about the economy because it's this continuous cycle. it is all related. the fact that we keep hearing from these candidates about what the issues are and where we need time prove, it doesn't sit well with the average american who is experiencing a positive environment right now in multiple ways. >> e-mail us, let us know how you feel, how does the economy feel in your household. you mentioned the economy, how the candidates were trying to debate about how do they improve the economy, elizabeth warren, one of the candidates on the stage lashed out about wealth and we've got someone who
3:07 am
responded to that here's elizabeth warren on the debate stage, attacking the wealthy. watch. >> i'm tired of free-loading billionaires. i think it's time that we ask those at the very top to pay more. we could cover the cost of those plans with targeted taxes on the very wealthiest americans and large corporations. the really, really billionaires are making their money off their accumulated wealth and it just keeps growing. >> it's interesting because then she came up with this in the latest debate, goes after pete buttigieg for fund raising. all of the candidates are raising money from rich people. that's just what they do. she said you were at a wine cave and that was trending on social media, wine cave, because rich people were hosting buttigieg. buttigieg put it back to warren's face, i'm the only one on the stage that's not a millionaire. you're a millionaire. and bernie marcus was on with
3:08 am
neil cavuto as pete teed up a moment ago and said give me a break. >> if the government didn't help me -- the government did everything they could to stop me from being successful and you know, to hear this nonsense, look at her. how much moneys is she worth today and what the hell did she do to get that money? did she work the way i worked? i doubt it very much. my parents were russian immigrants, poor as possibly could be. who would ever dream i could a achieve what i've achieved in my life today, only because this is america and only in america could you do that. >> yeah. and so look -- >> that might be one of the reasons she's been sinking. even some democrats are like come on, really. there was a time when elizabeth warren was surging. then she decided to go all-in on medicare for all, $52 trillion, trying look people in the face and seriously try to claim she wasn't going to have to raise taxes on the middle class. she's been all over the p map on
3:09 am
these things. >> i liked mayor pete's response to that. he didn't deny it. there's a lot of denial that occurs. he said yes, but it doesn't affect me. by the way, virtue signaling, let's put it back on you. a billionaire has the same value of a vote as someone who isn't which jane lynch tweeted about. >> that's what bernie marcus is saying, state of michigan demonizing people -- stop demonizing people from being successful. >> if you go from something to nothing, that's something you have the opportunity to do in the united states of america. over the last kim weeks, impeachment -- couple weeks, impeachment has been everywhere. there's a question about whether or not he's actually impeach. a liberal professor said if you don't pass it onto the senate, is he really impeached. there's a back and forth between nancy pelosi, mitch mcconnell and the president. nancy pelosi tried to defend her decision to hold off on sending the impeachment articles over to
3:10 am
the senate. here's what she said to polite co. she said -- politico. she said -- what is that? >> mcconnell suggested she is afraid. >> he fear is never a word used with me. you should know right away, i'm never afraid and rarely surprised. it was suggested maybe she's afraid to send the articles over. >> mcconnell says look, she thinks she has leverage over me. mcconnell said i don't care if there's a trial. i think the president is innocent. you've got no leverage over me. you've got a lot of republicans saying wait a second, nancy pelosi is saying unless you do what i want, i'm not sending the articles. is that a quid pro quo? i'm just wondering. it's an interesting question. the president jumped in. he tweeted nancy pelosi is looking for a quid pro quo with the senate. why aren't we impeaching her? you're not really going to impeach a member of congress. you get the idea, the president's saying he's fed up with all this. >> as a attorney, a basic
3:11 am
citizen, i think what's difficult to stomach is that information and strategy hoarding going on by the democrats. one side of their mouth they're talking about we need a fair trial and fairness. where's the fairness and due process afforded the most important defendant you've ever cited. i recognize this is not a criminal proceeding in the way we're used to but we have criminal proceedings very specifically for a reason. because we believe in process and due process and fairness and so this hoarding, i see them as celebrating prematuring, like celebrating the touchdown before you cross the line. the baton hasn't been passed. we're confused as to the process. i don't think that's beneficial. final point -- sorry. just that all we see are the negatives to her hoarding this. we have yet to see a positive reason why. >> i was talking to one of the president's advisers, saying we have heard from the democrats saying nobody is above the law. he's also not below the law.
3:12 am
he should be afforded the rights as emily was pointing out a moment ago. >> all the dc types are saying look at nancy pelosi playing the unafraid three dimensional chess. or she doesn't know what she's doing. you impeached him. it's not popular. you have no control in the senate. >> the president is like let's get to a quick trial. i want to be aquited. >> did you hear what schumer said? he said let's see how things evolve. i would never in the most critical proceeding want things to evolve. it's the lack of appreciation of evidence. >> turning to your headlines of we know th that the texas mother who went missing for a week with her toddler was strangled to death. she was found inside of a car. the owner of the home is under arrest. sh>> the wife of a u.s. diplomt
3:13 am
accused of killing a british teen with her car is facing charges. she claimed diplomatic immunity and fled the u.k. in august after she hit harry dunn while driving on the wrong side of the road. it's unclear if she will be sent back to the u.k. now, nascar legend, the racing world is remembering this nascar legend, robert glen junior john i don't knojohnson. he won 50 races including the daytona 500 as a driver and 132 races as an owner. he perfected his driving skills while running moon shine. he was 88 years old. really a legend. >> what a life. a legend of nascar and selling moonshine. pardoned by reagan. all right. >> a heck of a life.
3:14 am
>> prosecutors call it a crushing he blow to ms-13. you've got to pay attention to this. nearly 100 gang members rounded up. up next, the da who spearheaded the investigation joins us live for an exclusive on "fox & friends" " we're portuguese? i thought we were hungarian. can you tell me that story again? behind every question is a story waiting to be discovered. this holiday, start the journey with a dna kit from ancestry.

3:17 am
ms-13, it's a menace, a ruthless gang that violated our borders and transformed once peaceful neighborhoods into blood-stained killing fields. we are making tremendous striesmedz we'lstrides. in the not too distant future this problem will be eradicated. >> that was president trump promising a takedown of ms-13 during this time in office. new york law enforcement announcing criminal charges against 96 ms-13 gang members and associates. >> the bust dealing a crushing blow to the leadership of the
3:18 am
group. joining us now for an exclusive interview is the district attorney from sufficien suffolkw york. tell us about this. >> we charged 96 ms-13 gang members and associates in suffolk county with significant crimes including murder, conspiracy, drug distribution and assault. as a result of intelligence generated throughout the investigation, law enforcement made over 230 arrests throughout the world including in new york, throughout the united states, and in el salvador. in suffolk county we had a defendant located in holland. this was a global operation. the suffolk county district attorney's office worked hand in hand with the dea, fbi, a atf, suffolk county police. >> how did you do it? it's not easy to get inside a violent gang like this in. >> one strategy was the use of wiretaps. ultimately, we obtained wiretaps
3:19 am
on over 215 phones which is an unprecedented size in terms of wiretaps and we obviously employed a number of innovative investigative strategies, some of which i can't speak of, but certainly the use of wiretaps, social media analysis was key and i have to say, law enforcement did such a tremendous job because as they were gathering intelligence, as they would use that intelligence in real-time to stop acts of violence and put their lives on the line to stop those acts of violence. >> it's our understanding that resources were increased through the president and testimonies and kind of bringing to public awareness about this. speak to what those resources specifically were utilized for or how that really helped to kind of take you across that final mile. >> in 2016, i actually testified in front of the united states senate and united states house of representatives. i talked about ms-1 ms-13 and te real problem is poses for our country. i made it r clear that local police departments and district attorneys offices and other law enforcement agencies needed the assistance of the federal
3:20 am
government, particularly in terms of dollars, and we were awarded a half a million dollar grant which were used to combat ms-13. >> how much of a blow is this? >> this is a huge blow. this is -- this december mates the leader -- decembe dessimatee leadership on long island. the fight continues. they will attempt to reconstitute. the leadership in el salvador will uncouldn'tedly try to send additional leaders to long island so they can reconstitute. we need to stay vigilant. >> murders were thwarted in this process. thank you so much for your service to the community, for being here. >> thank you. >> president trump brushing off the democrats' impeachment push. >> doesn't really feel like we're being impeached. >> do most americans agree? what you won't see anywhere else, next.

>> back with some quick headlines out of washington. nancy pelosi sends a letter to the president inviting him to deliver the state of the union on february 4th. but the house speaker left out one key line from last year's invite. she said last year i look forward to welcoming you to the congress. maybe not so welcome this year. the president accepted the invite, though, just days after house democrats voted to impeach him. and that impeachment push appears to be backfiring out on the trail. the trump camp says they've raked in $10 million in the two days after the vote. the rnc also declaring november was its best fund raising month ever, hauling in $20.6 million. a lot of money, pete. >> maybe a few wine caves. thank you. to say it was a big week in politics would be an understatement. from president trump rallying voters in michigan to the top 2020 democrats taking to the debate stage in california. >> how did americans react? here with the details, partner and president at mclunski and partners, you a author of
3:26 am
persuasion, lee carter. welcome. >> big week and we're trying to get a sense of -- we know how the pundits talk about it. how do voters and people react. we'll start with the president and his speech, talking about impeachment or how it doesn't feel like it. watch. >> it doesn't really feel like we're being impeached. the country is doing better than ever before. we did nothing wrong. we did nothing wrong. and we have tremendous support in the republican party, like we've never had before. nobody's ever had this kind of support. >> remind the viewers, red republican, yellow independent, blue democrat. >> it's not surprising that democrats were on the
3:27 am
being impeached. it's interesting to see how -- >> he's saying they're coming after you as well. andrew yang had a strong debate. money was pouring in of after his performance. let's take a look at what he said. >> the media networks didn't do any favors by missing why donald trump became the president in the first place. the more we act like donald trump is the cause of all of our problems, the more americans lose trust that we can see what's going on in our communities and solve those problems. what we have to do, we have to stop being obsessed over impeachment. >> does that break you through? >> you didn't see like a huge shift there but democrats a b, independents a b, republicans a c. what people are saying now is enough on the impeachment. a lot of democrats said you know what, let's move on now. we've gotten as far as we need
3:28 am
to go. republicans felt like it was refreshing to hear a democrat admit that. >> to me, that's a heck of admission from democrats. the rest of the field all said he's the worst person on planet earth. for him to say let's get over it and they say i kind of agree -- >> it's really important. the one thing who seems to have an issue with the current economy was joe biden. let's listen to him now and what he had to say about it. >> i don't think they really do like the economy. go back and talk to the old neighbors, middle class neighborhoods you grew up in. middle class is getting killed. middle class is getting crush. working class has no way up as a consequence of that. the idea that we're growing, we're not growing. the wealthy, wealthy are are growing. ordinary people are not growing. they're not happy with where they are. that's why we must change this presidency now. >> over 70% of the public is saying we think the economy is very good. >> it's interesting when you have different people hearing things differently.
3:29 am
republicans gave it an f. independents in the middle there. you can see it. but the democrats actually agreed with him. they felt like the economy isn't working for them. a lot of people are down and out. democrats gave it a b. you can see the range. i think it's important joe biden is all about elect act. he doesn't have the -- electability. it's dangerous to say the economy isn't working. >> it feels like it's good and he's telling you it's bad. you can look for ways to make iter better but to pretend like it's not going well -- >> it didn't resonate. they've got to be careful. the president whoever it's going to be always resonates with independents. they're the key to who is elect able. >> good news for trump and yang maybe, not so much for biden. >> speaker nancy pelosi is delaying sending the articles to the senate. is she looking for her own quid pro quo, you might say? the president seems to think so. what does our panel think?

a 13-year-old is still in custody on murder charges. another teen was questioned and released. and two carnival cruise ships collide as horrified passengers look on and it was all caught on camera. >> oh, my god! holy [bleep] >> he's going to hit us next. >> he's going to hit us next. you don't see that every day. one ship attempted to dock in mexico when it hit the other and nearly a third boat. six people were injured. they're expected to be okay. passengers were reportedly told ocean current and high winds were factors in the crash. maybe bad steering as well. >> the pc police come for whitney cummings. she says for saying merry christmas. >> last year i was working on a tv show, got in trouble with you human resources for saying merry christmas to an intern. >> is that true? >> that's true. i was like bye guys, merry

christmas. i come back june 6th and hr said i needs to tal need to tal. one of the interns was pissed off because you said merry christmas. >> she said she used the christmas greeting as a fo formality to say good-bye to he coworkers. things have gotten pretty crazy. >> a police k-9 puts an end to a police chase after he blasts through a suspect's truck window. duke, the heroic hound, flying through the air to make the arrest. duke bit down on the suspect after he refused to get out of his car. he was also accused of stalking and trying to run over his estranged wife. emily, you have firsthand experience of how strong these dogs are. >> i do. that was one of the best experiences ever. it was incredible, meeting and learning about those military

3:39 am
lot of rain and wind, primarily in the southeast areas of georgia, alabama, florida and the carolinas. 8 inches of rain by the time we get to tuesday. >> the house voted to impeach president trump. speaker nancy pelosi, guess what, she's delaying sending the articles to the senate. the president is sort of taunting her in response to what seems to be an attempt at leverage to negotiate terms of the trial. the president tweeting, quote, nancy pelosi is looking for a quid pro quo with the senate. why aren't we impeaching her? here to discuss, our panel, aaron he'l.i thought nancy pelos against quid pro quos. >> she's supposed to be until it pertains to her. this is a christmas gift to conservatives. it's a kind of tweet they have come to love from our president. i would call ate savagery.
3:40 am
quid pro quo is the expression of 2019. all nancy is doing, she's getting new voters out there for trump. independents are starting to turn on the democrat party. the rnc raised $10 million in 48 hours. they raised $20 million in november. they have $63 million cash on-hand. >> that's not even the trump campaign which has far more money than the rnc in the bank. kevin, what's going on? >> i think nancy pelosi is a master sledge lay tore, -- ledge slay storelegislator. the president wants a trial. he wants to feel vindicated. this is the leverage. it's clearly working. >> what is she going to actually get? witnesses or what? >> i think that's the hope, that we get some kind of witness situation where chuck schumer asks for four witnesses to come forward and some kind of fairness in that senate component. >> get a mick mulvaney. >> a john bolton, mick
3:41 am
mulvaney, any number of those individuals. >> what's the long play here? >> i think the long play is to, again, exert pressure on the president to put his men up to testify. >> the senate's not going to -- it's not going to happen in the senate. this is an exercise in futility. >> the president wanted the witnesses to begin with. >> i'm enjoying this conversation. i want to bring joseph in as well. are you buying any of that? >> look, i think it's very clear that nancy pelosi is not the political genius that was promised. democrats want to say that no man is above the law but fine print, president trump is delow the law and democrats p don't have to abide bu aby -- abide b. we are looking at an extended impeachment process where most americans are saying i don't know what's going on. we're dealing with democrats that have failed to prove their case to the american public and ultimately right now democrats are having to deal with their comeup b uppance.
3:42 am
you can't have it both ways. >> a cnn poll is saying 76% of the public is saying the economy is are pretty good. that's a tough environment for democrats. >> it really is. they're resorting to terrible measures like impeachment. this trial really began in november of 2016 when president trump got elected. the couldn't handle that hillary clinton wasn't the first female president. >> kevin, last word. >> the economy's going strong. we've got to make the case to the american people that it's not strong enough to a lot of people. half of americans, if they get a $400 charge they have to sell something or take out a loan. >> last word from joan. >>john.>> if they can't come ua message on the economy, it's going to be a bad thing. >> gentlemen and lady, appreciate it. merry christmas. emily and pete.

3:47 am
them. bethlehem. when i was in bethlehem, many people, leaders and regular folks came, when we asked them, said we believe jesus was a palestinian. what do you say to that? >> i'd say what bible are you reading from? this is a frightening trend that's happening. and of course, we he see it with a lot of christian leaders who go to bethlehem, who go to the bible bethlehem college, they're fed this false narrative. this is unbiblical. it's actually hereti cal. there is no place in the bible where anybody can substa substae such an outrageous position. >> if you read the bible, you know jesus' parents were jewish, the whole story is a jewish story. what is the reason, why are people trying to rewrite the
3:48 am
narrative and say no, no, no -- including linda sasure, saying jesus was a palestinian, why? >> this is the anti-semetic movement we have seen rising around the globe. this is an opportunity for these false prophets, these heretics to teach a false gospel message to deny israel its right to that land. even the prophets were told that the messiah would come out of bethlehem, out of the je judean hills. there's way too many christian leaders that were espousing that. there is a leader in bet le bet, he's pleading with christians, help us. we're being overrun. >> i was filming a special,
3:49 am
battle in t bethlehem on fox nation, we spoke to the p baptist church in bethlehem, saying they were attacked dozens of times. we tried to talk to christians to talk on camera. they wouldn't talk on camera because they were in fear of their life. >> i commend you for doing the film. this is an important conversation to have. there are red signs posted outside of bethlehem or any of the areas, the palestinian controlled area, warning jews, you cannot enter here. if jesus were here today, he would not be able to go in there. they would try to crucify him again. no. this is outrageous that this is going on. we did a film similar to what you've done, communicating this and showing people, these christians will not go on camera to tell. but they'll hide their identity, hide their face and voice and plead with christians to come and help them. this is not true. this is not based on biblical
3:50 am
truth. we have to be careful. pastors who are replacement theologists, who are promoting or teaching this false narrative, it's outrageous that they get away with it. they wonder why people are leaving their churches. >> we don't have time to talk about replacement theology. look it up. that is the baseline for all of this. >> 80% have fled. >> thank you so much. on fox nation, you want something to watch over christmas, take a look at battle in bethlehem. we take you to the birth place of jesus and the reality of the fight ongoing over preserving christianity, that faith, where thamanger lay. >> grandparents across the u.s. are using tech to stay safe. kurt the cyber guy is here to break down tools to help your aging loved ones, coming up next. ♪ sitting around the fire with

4:02 am
we're back to that again? >> they're talking about it. maxine waters and others are saying the president is a puppet of putin. they're at it begin, something that's an oldy but goody. we went in the way bac way backe to show you. >> we're seeing evidence there was a consistent spir a conspir. >> he is the first president who may face the prospect of jail time. >> if we follow the tracks of those that have been involved with the cream lip kremlin, we'o putin. >> this president has made attempts to obstruct the russia investigation. >> the russian interference. >> russia. >> russia, russia. they celebrate christmas in russia so he that's the connection with our show and russia this morning. that's from the way back machine. some of that was before the mueller report, some of that was before all of this.

4:04 am
he had a different view of how we should engage with russia which every commander in chief has the prerogative to do. in some sense i think he likes to control his haters. if that's really where they're going, emily, they really tried all of this, he's not a legitimate president, we're boycotting the impeachment, it's russia, it's mueller, then they go to ukraine and the phone call and they impeach him and by the way, the whole time he's a racist. nub of inone of it works. the economy's on gang busters. he has more support from his party than he's ever had. >> that i'll vat illustrates te disconnect. they continue to move the goal post and cite differing targets. here's what the problem is. all of it is transparent that it's simply political gamesmanship. they don't believe anything they're saying. there's no supporting evidence. everyone continues to be disappointed. we keep hearing about a
4:05 am
bombshell every week. there's nothing. we're seeing everything being deflated. >> maybe it shows that the democrats don't have a strategy on all this. maybe it shows the ukraine scenario didn't work out as they plan. even liberal legal scholars are saying he's not really impeached because nancy pelosi is refusing so far to send the articles of impeachment to the senate. john ratcliffe, a key republican ally to the president, says she knows once there's a senate trial she won't be able to rig it anymore. >> we heard house democrats saying the evidence is overwhelming, it's clear, it's undisputed. we have everything we could possibly need to impeach donald trump right now. and at the same time, you heard chuck schumer in the senate saying we need more evidence and more testimony for a trial over here in the senate. nancy pelosi knew that as well which is why she slammed the brakes on sending the articles of impeachment over. home court advantage goes away in the senate. it's not adam schiff as both
4:06 am
prosecutor and judge. it's john roberts ruling fairly. >> maybe they're hitting a wall there all of a sudden. you have an economy that's so strong that joe biden is struggling to explain in the last debate about what he would do differently to change the economy. it seems to be on track, with 70% of the public saying it's pretty good. the president is following through on another promise, which is to take down ms-13. we just saw in the last day or so the largest takedown of ms-13 gang members on long island here in new york. this is a big deal, something the president promised to do. >> we had on the district attorney of suffolk county. he said he testified in front of the senate and a was awarded half a million dollars for these resources. that goes to show, when you have concrete evidence and per sway suv testimony that -- persuading testimony, that you get results. they made arrests from here to
4:07 am
holland to el salvador. >> we're going to play some sound in a second. he talked about how critical it was that someone was willing to shine a spotlight on it and he thanked us for covering it because most of the outlets don't want to talk about it. why. because president trump has talked about it. here's president trump talking about the need to get rid of ms-13 last year. >> ms-13, it's a menace, a ruthless gang that violated our borders and transformed once peaceful neighborhoods into blood-stained killing fields. we are making tremendous strides. we will continue and in a not too distant future i feel totally confident that this product, this problem will be eradicated. >> it's interesting is that when he said it back then, it was negative, negative, negative. >> he called them animals. >> democrats said oh, he's so vicious, he's so mean and what they said was that essex an rating -- he's exaggerating the problem, that it's not a
4:08 am
crisis. tell it to the moms and dads that have had their kids stabbed to death. this has been an epidemic. the da from suffolk county came on a few moments ago. he told us the president followed through. watch. >>.>> we obtained wiretaps on r 215 phones which is an unprecedented size in terms of wiretaps and we object hav obviy employed a number of strategies some of which i can't speak of but certainly the use of wiretaps, social media analysis was key. law enforcement did such a tremendous job. as they were gathering intelligence, they would use that intelligence in real-time to stop acts of violence and put their lives on the line to stop those acts of violence. they will attempt to reconstitute. the leadership in el salvador will try to send additional leaders to long island so they can reconstitute. we need to stay vigilant. >> seven murders prevented in real-time. 93 gang members and associates
4:09 am
arrested. the model of ms-13 is rape, kill, control and they've done that and they're dessimated on long island. it's a great law enforcement story and a key win for the president. >> what's so disturbing is the politicalization of crime and threats. the team flag you fly and therefore, this is good, this is bad, this is not bad. to minimize threats that hurts us all. it's bipartisan. threats are bipartisan. >> it's the president's approach to say look, we've got to deal with this in terms of ms-13 gang members, not all immigrants are in those gangs, obviously and people try to conflate that. democrats say they want to give illegal immigrants health care benefits. pete buttigieg is promising rep reparations to illegal
4:10 am
immigrants. bernie sanders is doubling down on his plan to give health care to every single illegal immigrant. >> when i talk about medicare for all, i want you to understand that includes all, that includes undocumented people as well. [ cheering and applause ] >> when i talk about making public colleges and universities tuition-free, that includes as i said earlier, undocumented young people. >> are you committing as president to financial compensation for those spouses an children? >> yes, and they should have a fast track to citizenship. we have a moral obligation to make right what was broken. >> so the children of illegal immigrants are going to get basically reparations. >> just keep talking, please keep talking, as much as you can, all about how much you love illegality and how you want to pay re reparations.
4:11 am
if you want to talk about a pathway, you can have a legitimate public policy conversation about that. if you want to talk about people who break our laws, good luck selling that in michigan, iowa, wisconsin and pennsylvania. it's a losing message. they have to know it is. they're preaching to the far left wing anti-american base that is their electorate right now and it's going to hurt them in november. >> after reparations have been paid, that make it okay. we're going to pay and then this and then this. it makes no sense. the actual concept reparations is what restores to normal. it's ill logical in my head. >> what do you think about that, where are democrats headed when they continue to stand up for
4:12 am
benefits for illegal benefits. >> if we had five more minutes we could talk a lot about reparations. >> a fisa court judge demanding more answers over the carter page surveillance warrant. the same judge rebuked the fbi after the doj inspector general revealed several mistakes and omissions in the warrant used to surveil the trump campaign adviser. the judge wants more information on the fbi lawyer linked to the warrant. >> boeing star liner set to return home tomorrow after failing to reach its intended orbit. experts believe a timing issue in the system caused the unmanned spacecraft to burn more fuel than planned. that prevented it from reaching the space station. nasa says there was no damage to the capsule. it's unclear if boeing still plans to put astronauts on-board the star liner as they were planning to do by next summer. they say it was a test that otherwise went well. >> these designer shoes -- those are shoes -- just might be

welcome back. a fox news alert. the body of missing texas mother heidi broussard discovered at a home near houston. her newborn daughter found alive and unharmed. a close friend is being charged with kidnapping in connection with the death. the suspect is insisting to officers the baby is hers. what is going to happen as the case goes forward. ted williams joins us now. thank you for being here. tell us your thoughts on this case. >> well, you know, it's a very sad turn of events as ours viewers should know on december 12th, heidi broussard, 33-year-old female, dropped her child off at a school, came home and was --
4:18 am
went missing. it was determined as a part of the investigation that a woman by the name of magen fieramusca who was supposedly heidi broussard's best friend, perhaps may very well be involved in her death. the authorities have been able to place fieramusca's car in the austin, texas area, the area in which heidi lived. i must tell you, emily, this is somewhat touching to me personally in an indirect manner because heidi broussard was from lake charles, louisiana, that's where i grew up. but fieramusca lived in the houston, texas area and what authorities were able to glean and find yesterday was the baby alive and well at fieramusca's
4:19 am
home and heidi broussard in the trunk of fieramusca's car. now, one other thing that's important that they found in the investigation is that fieramusca at the same time that heidi broussard became pregnant had told individuals and people that she also was pregnant. so i think where authorities are going with this is the motive is possibly that fieramusca wanted a child of her own and unfortunately decided to perhaps harm heidi broussard and my rush nairational for saying possiblys because she's been charged at this stage with two counts of kidnapping and one count of messing with a corps. >> ted, thank you so much and our consistent of doug condoleny

4:26 am
favor of impeachment says that might not be the case. so what does this mean for the president? >> here to discuss, member of the legal team and executive director for the american center for law and justice, jordan sekulow. thanks for being here. nancy pelosi says impeachment the senate did not consider president clinton impeached until the house actually voted on the procedure to name its house managers, that would then go to the senate to present the articles of impeachment. so that's why you could argue that opinion, that the president has not actually been impeached. but there is another theory we're looking at to move this a
4:27 am
along in a bit quicker process, regardless of what nancy pelosi would like. let's assume the president has been impeached. that's the only job the house has under the constitution. you won't find in the constitution an article one, anything about them having to name managers for the senate to have a trial. they have the sole -- they can impeach, but who gets the sole power to try? it's the senate. and does the senate have to wait for the house to present the articles? and there's a theory, they don't. because the articles were publicly voted on and we all have them, as well as the reports, the lengthy ones from the judiciary committee and intel committee. >> that's one theory, interesting, jordan, the idea that look, it's out of the house's hands. noah feldman, a liberal law professor says this. if the house doesn't communicate its impeachment to the senate it
4:28 am
hasn't impeached the president, if the articles are not transmitted trump could say he was not truly impeached at all. your thoughts? >> i think that under the current reading, you could make that argument very clearly, that if the senate decides to take no action and the house does not take action to go ahead and schedule the trial, even though we believe it could under article one of the constitution, because it has the sole power to try and the supreme court's been clear that the definition of try is very broad when it comes to the u.s. senate. but you could definitely make the case, if they don't move forward and nancy pelosi just sits on this, that impeachment has not been finalized. it hasn't actually occurred. the vote occurred but has not been finalized. the president could say as noah feldman wrote that he has not yet been impeached. >> what the i is the preferencf the president's legal team? what's most likely to happen?
4:29 am
>> i think we're going to wait right now between this break, obviously, to see if nancy pelosi is just kind of pulling a stunt here and we can get back on track and have a normal senate trial with house managers and go through the real motions, go through the real process that we didn't see in the house. but ultimately, because i don't think the democrats will ever buy that the president wasn't impeached in the house or the democratic senators, so ultimately i think we want to see a trial regardless if nancy pelosi ever names managerses and sends it over to the senate or not. because ultimately that will lead to the president's acquittal and the dismissal of these two articles of impeachment. >> all right. jordan sekulow, appreciate it. >> thank you, juror da. >> thank you, guys. >> is this one of your favorite christmas movies? >> emily says it's one of her envelope av e -- faves.

>> charlie brown is wonderful. of all of them, there is zero political message. this is the most religious, let's keep the christ in christmas thing and as a television writer, charles schultz, this is not funny, when cbs ordered the special charles schultz said i'll do but i need complete control of the script. he dropped it off. they were expecting a crazy cartoon and there's a jazz theme song and bible quotes. there's nothing political, everything wonderful about charlie brown. >> we agree. thank you so much, michael. >> merry christmas. >> merry christmas to you. >> let's turn to some other headlines. the head of the freedom coalition is slamming christianity after the magazine called for president trump's removal from office. >> they may want to change the name of the magazine to christianity yesterday. you can't imagine a publication

more out of step with the faith community that it once represented. >> ralph reed defending the president who was blasted by the publication. the editor in chief of christianity today wrote on thursday the president's behavior is quote, unquote, immoral to the level he is no longer fit to serve in office. the president fired back with a tweet of his own. superhero strength caught on camera. a connecticut school resource officer springing to action to stop a run-away suv. officer carlos carlo grabbed the driver's side door, bringing the vehicle to a stop. there were two passengers but no driver inside the parked suv when it started rolling downhill with students in its path. nobody was seriously hurt. >> a long-time mall santa replaced for wearing a maga hat is now speaking out. people complained to a georgia mall after someone saw the photo on frank skinner's personal facebook page. >> i want to make it clear, i did not do this around any children.
4:40 am
in fact, really there was nobody really around other than me and the camera girl. i understand as a santa of 48 years that you don't mix politics with santa with kids and i didn't do that. >> yeah, another case of someone being locked out of social media. he said his manager told him to lay low, hoping the controversy would blow over. skinner said he was not fired and he was told the schedule would be re-evaluated. is that a kind way of saying you're fired? >> you've been reevaluated, we think you better go to the next mall. >> 48 years. he did everything right. and he was still punished for it. >> except he wore a a maga hat and somebody got mad. >> he put it on his personal facebook page. >> we all know that santa supports president trump. >> oh, really? >> this is not a secret. why can't he just wear it? >> let's ask rick about that. have you heard anything about santa. >> i don't know that santa has a political favorite. >> i talked to him. >> you did? >> yes. >> really.

amount of influence on the way we fight wars. the president touted this campaign promise that was his alone. listen. >> we officially inaugurate the newest branch of our military, this is a very big and important moment. it's called the space force. think of that. we will create a brand-new american military service at such a momentous statement. that's a big moment and we're all here for it. space, going to be a lot of things happening in space. of course, space is the world's newest war fighting domain. ad mid grave threats to our national security, american superiority in space is absolutely vital. >> the president averting a shutdown, signing a budget deal, part of it is the ndaa. 3% pay raise for the military,

big overhaul of the 401-k system, encouraging people to use it, we mentioned the space force. money for the border wall which democrats said they never wanted to give them. new sanctions on syria, north korea, upgrading our voting systems and then this one i don't like so much, increasing the smoking age to 21. i think it should stay at 18. >> there are a lot of things that happened that deserved our attention. the democrats were obsessed with impeachment. a lot of that was glossed over. we're covering it now. what an exciting time to be part of the creation of a space force. we have other global super powers that are goten there first. >> we want to be ahead of them. >> while impeachment is going on, the president's winning. he's been racking up wins, you mentioned usmca. we talked about this budget deal, keep the government open. there were people saying a few weeks ago the whole budget, government could be shut down, could be a big problem for the president with the election.
5:04 am
remember people were saying there would be a recession as well. look at the stock market, rallying to new records again ahead of the holiday week. we've seen retail sales over the moon. you might sa say. the dow, s&p have had weeks that have been up for four weeks in a row. this is where we were yesterday, seeing new record highs. the real important point, you talk about low unemployment, wages going up, people are feeling that in their paychecks, they're feeling that. this is something for a long time. you've heard unemployment being low, it's just a statistic, people don't feel it. cnn had a poll, how would you rate the economic conditions in the country today. 76% said good. going back to bill clinton, it's the economy, stupid. you talk about impeachment, all the other headaches democrats
5:05 am
try to create for the president. economy's doing well. he's winning right now. >> joe biden for example, he is saying no, no, don't believe that at all. this is why the presidency needs to change. it's not what you think. clearly, at least 76% of americans disagree and those are the kitchen table issues that matter to them when they're voting. >> if you're democrats and you're going home for christmas because they're all going home and you think you put a lump of coal in president trump's stocking but actually people view it as a bunch of voice and partisanship and they're angry and frustrated about the reality they dragged our country through this and underneath it all, not only is our economy going like gang busters and democrats can't figure out how to talk about it but a concerted legislative agenda quietly behind the scenes has been crafted with generational changes. the ability for -- when you look at the overhaul of 401-k system, when you look at the jobs that have been created in this country, when you look at the way we're rebuilding the military, when you look at what
5:06 am
the president has accomplished, it's almost as if they did the job for him. the judges the judges they nominated and pushed through while the left is screaming, it's amazing the contrast that exists here. if they step back and feel like they have one, one of those moments they might be thinking be careful what you wish for. ed: is that why nancy pelosi is not sending the articles? she is talking about leverage. maybe they want to talk about other issues. they realize go to a trial the president will be acquitted and get another victory, essentially and turn the page. we ask you how do you feel about the economy you? are writing in fast and furious. timothy on facebook my 401(k) is up 23%. i write the economy is a keeper. if it continues there is no way trump is not reelected. emily: dave on facebook says trump has helped put money in everyone's pocket. democrats' plans is to try to take as much money out of everyone's pockets. i' m voting for my pockets full with trump. pete: democrats complain and say all we got were crumbs
5:07 am
on trump's tax deal. i will keep my crumbs, thank you very much. you mentioned that poll. that was not an rnc poll. it was a cnn poll. then they had to go on the air and admit that three fourths, you don't see any polls in this country where three in every four americans agree something is good and for decades that's been the conventional wisdom, if the economy is good, have you an incumbent pathway to rye elections. promises kept and impeachment they are looking at a tough year. ed: somehow the country should change hands at economy is not being run well. that's going to be a difficult case. then maybe the hard case on impeachment. they may have some buyer's remorse on all of that in terms of ukraine narrative after russia narrative fell apart. nancy pelosi not sending the articles of impeachment over the senate. the senate republican leader there, mitch mcconnell, said she is afraid to send them over. guess what she said. i'm never afraid. she says never ever.
5:08 am
telling political co-pfff fear is never a word used with me. you should know right away i'm never afraid and rarely surprised. pete: mitch mcconnell has pointed out if nancy pelosi thinks she has leverage, she is withholding something we don't want. ed: he doesn't want to deal with a trial. if you don't want to do it don't do it. pete: hang over there with your half articles of impeachment that aren't really impeachment you do your thing and sell it to your caucus may be on saysed with it and take tough votes in your district that they're going to pay for. good luck with that. emily: emily, you are a lawyer, sounds to me. i don't know the legal definition. we have had this debate on ukraine. nancy pelosi is saying i'm not giving you the articles of impeachment unless i get a better deal in terms of you who the trial will be laid out. is that a quid pro quo. emily: sure sounds like it, right? as an attorney, what bothers me so much about this is that lack of artic coul articuln and specificity. i understand that usually that holds for criminal trials. that's not what this is. what else do we have to go on.
5:09 am
why is that such a fundamental part of you who we the constitution and how we feel as a society. are we lacking in the most important and crucial trial that affects all of us it. speaks to that so transparent. it's gamesmanship that none of them care about fairness. pete: no, you are right. the president might agree with your characterization a little bit there, ed. he says nancy pelosi is looking for a quid pro quo with the senate. why aren't we impeaching her? a rhetorical question there. ed: you can't really impeach a member of congress. ari fleischer is talking about how you hear from the left. in fact, i saw one publication saying this was the year, axios year of nancy pelosi that she dominated because of impeachment and other matters. ari fleischer, he has got some problems with that characterization, watch. >> this will go down as one of the greatest mistakes the speaker has ever made. when you have the momentum of impeachment your party earnestly believes in right thing to do and urgent they remove the president for power because of the peril
5:10 am
he represents, then you sit on it? all you are doing is showing this was a hallow exercise all along. we know now that impeachment began without a formal vote to authorize impeachment and it's ending now with a thud. they don't even want to move it over to the senate because they want to use it for some type of leverage. there is no leverage to be had on this because it was a waste of time when it began. now, it's even more of a waste of time. pete: well said. i was kind of listening to his question. i was also googling what does it take for an army major to transfer to the space force? i don't know that i have any skills that are useful in space. ed: is this breaking news? are you joining space force. pete: i don't know what's the process someone goes from the army to the space force. when they build that first for the on the moon it will be fort trump. who else life goals right there. i'm as qualified to be the secretary of space force as hunter biden was to be on
5:11 am
burisma. but i might still get it because he still got the spot. you never know. ed: big money. in the meantime turn to your headlines. mother who went missing with newborn baby marge was strangled to death. heidi's body found in a trunk of a car outside of a houston area home. baby margo found inside unharmed in a baby swing. the owner of that home now under arrest. meghan insisted to officers the baby was hers. former homicide detective ted williams weighed in earlier. >> at the same time that heidi broussard became pregnant, had told individuals and people that she also was pregnant. she wanted a child of her own and, unfortunately, decided to, perhaps, harm heidi broussard. ed: she has been charged with kidnapping and tampering with a corpse. you see her right there. we will see how this all
5:12 am
plays out. still a lot of unanswered questions about motive and the rest. major win in the fight against ms-13. more good news for the president. 96 gang members arrested in what new york prosecutors say is biggest crackdown ever. suffolk county district attorney timothy joined us earlier calling it a major step in the fight against a violent group. >> this decimates the leadership on long island. i cannot under estimate the blow that this is; however, the fight continues. ed: officials say the two year operation stopped at least seven ms-13 murder plots. think about that. seven murder plots foiled all because of that. the racing world robert glen jr. johnson in 1965 johnson was dubbed as the last american hero in an article fofor esquire magazine. johnson won 50 races clearly the daytona as a driver and 122 as an owner.
5:13 am
perfecteperfected driving skills running moon shine. johnson was 88 years old. that is amazing. what a life. pete: you might say he lived life in the fast lane. ed: a trooper pulls a car over. the trooper praying for the husband and wife. snapping this now viral photo. he let them go with a warning for a non-speeding violation. nice moment, precious moment right there and those are your headlines. pete: god bless them. as democrats double down on impeachment, the teleprompter scrolls on me.

5:18 am
space force. the first time in 70 years since the creation of the air force and we all -- you know, we can make our jokes, this is deadly serious. the chinese and the russians have developed the capability to take out our satellite constellations that our entire economy and our military are completely dependent on this. is incredibly important. pete, i have to say i'm going to nominate you for commandant of the space academy so you can be in charge of the space cadets. >> oh, boy, that is a serious life goal but i feel like you, my friend are more qualified. people have made jokes about the space force. that is the next frontier. it is the current frontier of the battlefield. why did president trump see that and the importance of that when others weren't even talking about it? >> just as we dominated air power with the creation of the air force in the 1940s, we now need to dominate the ultimate high ground which is space power. and we have seen, you know, the defense budget decline year over year under the
5:19 am
obama years. pete: yeah. >> meanwhile the chinese increase their budget over 80% and they have made huge investments. they can shoot down our satellites with lasers. with missiles and i don't think folks fully realize how depend dental agriculture, our banking, navigation, telecommunications and of course our military is on our systems up there. and everything the chinese do up there is backed by their military. they are going to put up their own space station, their own manned station on the moon. this is, again, deadly serious. pete: most wars are determined before the first shot is fired. >> that's right. pete: if they can put nut dark before anything happens, you are in serious trouble. the importance of a pay raise for our troops? >> it's the largest in 10 years and they deserve it. they also got in there benefits for our gold star families. repealed and child care that i was able to get. in and then importantly we also expanded parental leave
5:20 am
from the military to all federal workers and that was a huge priority for ivanka trump. so this was just some good news and a great night, historic night for the president and the country. pete: thank you for laying out for us. congressman waltz i will see you in the space force. >> first green beret in space. i have goals, too. pete: you can be that man. appreciate it, merry christmas. >> merry christmas. pete: president trump holding a christmas rally as democrats battle it out on debate stage. who scored higher with the voters? the dials you won't see anywhere else coming up next. >> it doesn't really feel like we are being impeached.

pete: welcome back. quick headlines, more than 50,000 guns turned over to new zealand authorities after country bans some weapons. at least 33,000 gun owners took part in a nationwide buy back program before it ended last night. the ban was passed after 51 people were shot and killed at two mosques back in march. no word yet on how many criminals gave up their illegal guns. and jane fonda celebrates her 82nd birthday by getting arrested in washington in what looks like a santa

suit. i think she thinks that's fashion. smiling as officers bound her hands together while protesting climate change. this is fonda's fifth arrest as part of her fire drill inquire initiative. she was later released because there is no real consequence for her. ed: i could listen to pete talk about jane fonda all day. emily: 2020 democrats made their pitch to voters. this as president trump held a merry christmas rally in michigan. what did the voters think. ed: here with the woman who has the answers author of persuasion lee carter. good morning. >> good morning. we going to get to the democratic debate. get to the president. split screen. he was in michigan. battle ground obviously. >> the democrats are lousy politicians. they really are they have horrible policies, open borders, crime is fine. drugs pouring through.
5:26 am
i mean, think of what they do. sanctuary cities, they love sanction area cities, you know. [crowd boos] they are lousy politicians. but they have one thing -- two things. they are vicious. they are the most vicious people. the republicans aren't as vicious. ed: how did it go? >> you can see there. democrats gave it an f. that's not at all surprising. independents a c and republicans an a. a lot of people are out there talking about how he was unhinged or how this wasn't a good strategy for him. for his base, this definitely resonated it. definitely rallied people around him and did exactly what he wanted it to do. emily: lee, isn't the most important line the independents? no matter, what fundamentally for this next election what both sides need is that yellow line in the middle. >> there is no question about it. independents haven't totally walked away from the president. they are sort of neutral right now. not that they are totally on board. not turned off by what he is saying either. important to know and not something you are hearing out of places either. ed: see where the independents are with someone like joe biden the former vice president.
5:27 am
watch. >> i refuse to accept the notion as some on this stage do what we can never never get to a place where we have cooperation again. if that's the case, we are dead as a country. we need to be able to reach consensus. if anyone has reason to be angry at the republicans and not want to cooperate it's me. the way they have attacked me and my son and my family. i have have no, no, no love -- the fact is, we have to be able to get things done. ed: two ideas there talking about bipartisan but also defending his son. >> that's right. so democrats gave it an a, independents a c, republicans a d. we're really so divided on how we see things and independents were right in the middle basically saying stop fighting with each other, guys. i want to hear about your ideas. emily: we also have tom steyer on immigration. watch. >> this president is not against immigration. he is against immigration by nonwhite people. he has been vilifying nonwhite people. he has been trying to
5:28 am
inflame his base and scare them that if, in fact, white people lose control of this country, that they are going to lose control of their lives. ed: there he is stark difference, make it all about race. >> right? so fascinating. democrats a minus, independents c minus and republicans an f. they really do donald trump's immigration policy is racist. that's why it resonates. republicans say absolutely it has nothing to do with racism. keeping things legal and safe. not about racism. they reject it outright. and unless and until we understand each other's perspective, we are not going to be making progress that kind of name-calling divides us. ed: independents said c minus so they weren't happy. emily: real quick, anything that independents give an a onto the g.o.p. that you see is an important issue to them? >> the economy. it's like the thing that is so interesting. when it comes to how well the economy is the independents are really excited about it. middle class really excited about it.
5:29 am
when the democrats try to say it's not good it doesn't work with independents. that's not their truth or reality. the independents are resonating with this idea of the divide, about saying that it's unfair that some people are getting so much and other people are getting so little. the they are rejecting outright that the economy is not working for americans. ed: thank you. emily: thank you so much. fallout from the fisa court's rule in the russia probe. warrants the court granted to the fbi. ed: dan bongino fired up over fisa abuse. they will get them to sing some christmas carols too. ♪ ♪ ♪ ain't going down until the sun comes up ♪ it's time to sell or trade in your car. with truecar, just enter your license plate

more information about the fbi lawyer linked to that carter page warrant. you have been all over. this what's next in this drama. >> you know, ed, i'm not sure people understand really how bad this saga about the fbi lawyer and manipulation of evidence really is having been a federal agent on the secret service side for nearly 12 years of my life. it's real,very, very serious. if you swear, raise your right hand that information is true you know is knowingly false is used to put someone in prison, take their life away. get a warrant to storm their house in the morning, that is a very serious thing. what happened in this case is unbelievable. the fbi noticed that carter page was having contact with some russians. they reach out to an intelligence agency, thought to be the cia via this lawyer. the cia comes back to them and says no, no. those contacts are on behalf of a u.s. government sanctioned operation. we're asking for help from carter page to nail these russians. the fbi then minute memberships this email to

5:36 am
one was intentionality and malfeasance. having worked with fbi agents on the ground who were very good. there is no way that people doing this were that stupid so if it wasn't ignorance and just stupid, and the only plausible explanation is intentionality. they did this intentionally. listen, razor given all explanations for a scenario always accept the one that requires the least amount of assumptions. i cannot assume every agent who touched this was a moron. they will weren't. someone did this intentionally. come on, guys. everybody has got to wake up to this. emily: i think, dan, as well. the narrative that especially comey was pushing that this happened it was a high bar to cross for these applications is so false, right? we know over 99% of those applications were approved. and in foregovernment -- for government surveillance for private citizen surveillance, everyone should even one is overreached. adam schiff doesn't seem to think. so the intel committee

5:47 am
feldman is a very creative guy as we saw in his testimony. but impeachment is an impeachment by any other name. and so there was a debate and there was a recorded vote. and that goes down in history. however, he is making a really good point. it's an impeachment with a footnote or with an asterisk. by the way it never went over to the senate, which i think it's a bit of a phoney impeachment. ed: is it nancy pelosi having buyer's remorse. i know you can't get inside her head. why in the world after going out here and actually voting on these articles and passing two of them, why not send it over to the senate? >> she appears to be into the power lines of the senate ironic and extreme. there was an abuse of house power in the way that this process unfolded in the house and riding roughshod

6:02 am
a brand new american military service at such a momentous statement and of course space is the world's newest war fighting domain, amid grave threats to our national security, american superiority in space is absolutely vital. >> reporter: on the plane the president also signed two massive spending bills to avoid a government shutdown, and the legislation includes wins for both parties, democrats gave the president another $1.4 billion for border security which includes his wall on the southern border and in exchange, they got a $27 billion increase for domestic programs including funding for gun violence research and hundreds of million s of dollars for states to upgrade their election system the price of these spending bills, not sitting well with fiscal conservatives though who are talking about the roughly $400 billion it adds to the deficit over the next 10 years. pete, ed and emily? ed: remember a couple years ago you were fired up about this and you said the president should
6:03 am
veto it. pete: he got border wall funding into this and found other ways to get those resources so there are times and places but what if you look over the democrats and the green new deal and medicare for all. i wonder whether they would bust the budget. >> i notice there was no pete out of the over the billion dollars allocated for the border wall and we've said impeachment for the last few weeks for the democrats and somehow issues they used to care about there was no discussion. ed: the president was mocked when he talked about space force , which democrats tend to do, when he brings up an issue he's been testing out one of these rallies people across the country seem to think it's a good idea we should be taking on china, russia, others out in space and remember democrats os saying we're supposed to be tougher on russia so the president is saying let's get out in space and the congressman knows a little something about this and says it's a smart move, watch. >> well this was truly a historic night. it was the largest defense bill
6:04 am
ever. $738 billion repairing our military promises made, promises kept, to all of our soldier,, sailors, air men and marina round-the-world, and the creation of a new branch of the military and the space force we can make our jokes but this is deadly serious. the chinese and the russians have developed a capability to take out our satellite constellations at our entire economy and our military are completely dependent on so this is incredibly important. pete: this announcement takes you back back to ronald regan when he announced a strategic defense initiative in 1983 and he was mocked and the soviet union took it seriously because they thought we could shoot down their ballistic and nuclear missiles, led to the end of the cold war and it's seen as a huge strategic move this and what it does for our advantages in the future. the weaponization of space is real. we could be a part of it or not. >> i thought it was a vital point the congressman made but it's not about offense too, the mocking is about defense and the fact that our economy, that
6:05 am
space is a crucial component to our economy and to our military. to our communications literally everything depends on the satellite so it is vital that we know how to protect it and we have the resources to protect it ed: if you take a step back what it's really about is the president framing an issue and winning on it and that's what he's been trying to do ahead of 2020 in the economy and this idea of socialism versus free enterprise, right? and so whose on the socialistic side? you got bernie sanders, elizabeth warren, even though she doesn't call herself a socialistic when you talk about spending $52 trillion, that sounds a little socialistic. pete: look at the graphic. war and on wealth. >> oh, yeah. ed: because what you're doing is beating up on the rich and people that have been successful >> the fact she maintains she's a capitalist she's literally in the debates makes it a point to assault it and go on the offensive for those who have benefited from the capitalist society and chosen to give back

what's this montage here. i'm tired of free loading billionaires and i think it's time we ask those at the very top to pay more. we could cover the cost of those plans with targeted taxes on the very wealthiest americans and large corporations. the really really billionaires are making their money off their accumulated wealth. ed: we're not talking about billionaires but really really billionaires those are the ones. pete: the free-loading really really billionaires so one came on our program, on with neil cavuto yesterday, i was on the elliptic first watching ed and then watching neil cavuto and he interviewed bernie marcus one of the co-founders of home depot, created hundreds of thousands of jobs in this country, he himself , his family of immigrant s, he talked about this idea of attacking the wealthy, and instead saying the government should solve your problems here is what he had to say. >> if the government didn't tell me, i must tell you they did everything they could to
6:07 am
stop me from being successful and you know, to hear this nonsense look at her. how much money is she worth today and what the hell did she do to get that money? did she work the way i worked? i doubt it very much. my parents were russian immigrants, poor as possibly can be. who would ever dream i could achieve what i've achieved in my life today only because this is america, and only in america could you do that. ed: very stern words, very interesting message. >> his story echoes so many similar americans obviously not with the wealth but my sister's small business, my dad's small business, absolutely crippled by regulations. state and federal, so he makes such a grain point that the government does all it can, all the time, to stop you from becoming successful. the hardest thing, the hardest job is being an entrepreneur at least before this administration so for her to rail against the benefits they cannot be over stated. pete: and think about the contrast ed you talked about marketing how we'll throw
6:08 am
something out there and then it defines an issue. remember when president trump said i'm going to call elizabeth warren pocohontas. he said oh, you can't say that and he said i'll market her in a way people understand. you misrepresent your background in order to qualify for a position, and then you enrich yourself? that doesn't seem fair to me. that's marketing someone who made a ton of money in academia with elites not the same way bernie marcus did building an amazing american life. ed: and look at how the president framed the issue of immigration. he said look it's about enforcing our laws and you've got democrats on the 2020 trail saying let's give him free benefits and reward people for being illegal immigrants. we're coming here, and i had a viewer send me a note during the show saying wait a second democrats spent the last few months on ukraine saying the president is not above the law but somehow they are saying illegal immigrants are above the law. you can come here illegally we'll give you healthcare, true tuition, bernie sanders and others out on the trail, doubling down, watch.
6:09 am
>> when i talk about medicare for all, i want you to understand that includes all, that includes undocumented people as well. >> [applause] >> and when i talk about making public colleges and universities , tuition-free, that includes, as i said, earlier, undocumented young people. >> are you committing, as president, to financial compensation for those thousands of children? >> yes, and they should have a fast-track to citizenship. >> we have a moral obligation to make right what was broken. pete: oh, boy, you know i was watching tucker last night who is a fox & friends co-host alumni, used to host this program. ed: you watched a lot of fox by the way. pete: i did watch a lot of fox. ed: did you do anything else yesterday? pete: i worked out. ed: that's like a four hour work out. pete: but what he pointed out is where is the electorate for this
6:10 am

6:17 am
keep very dangerous people off our streets. >> president trump tackling the nations homeless crisis this week focusing on reforms like early detection of mental illnesses. our next guest was featured at the summit and says it's often the democrats policies getting in the way of solving the crisis ed: here to explain is executive direct or of the mental illness policy, and mental health industry fails the mentally ill, dj jaffey, welcome. >> thanks for covering the subject. ed: it's a very important topic and i don't want to make it political but you're telling me on the way in look, i'm a liberal but i think president trump is trying to do something positive, why? >> he identified the need to help the most seriously ill, and he called for more hospitals which is part of the solution, he's called for easier civil commitment which is part of the solution, it is not compassionate to let people wall ow in their psychosis, go homeless and eat out of dumpster s.
6:18 am
ed: so what's not being addressed on those points that you think he's at least trying to do and what does he need to kind of follow-up on all of this >> first of all he held this mental health summit and it was very gracious of him to invite me because i am a liberal but i've written that republicans are sometimes doing better things for the most seriously ill than my fellow liberals. my fellow liberals tend to divert mental health funds to social ills, like unemployment, divorce, angst about gender identity, poverty but that's not what's helping the most seriously mentally ill. the most seriously mentally ill need doctors, social workers, hospitals when needed and the president is really focused on the seriously ill. >> and what are your thoughts on sort of the law enforcement legislative component to that full piece of the pie? how is that being either hamstringed or encouraged? >> well one of the things we have to do is the federal government is running some programs that don't help the mentally ill, in fact they get
6:19 am
out of the way. the department of justice is encouraging states to discharge people from hospitals and they should stop doing that. the federal government is funding a protection and advocacy program and these are people who believe being psychotic and dilution all is a right to be protected, rather than an illness to be treated so the first thing we have to do is get rid of the federal programs that are harming the seriously mentally ill and then we have to have programs that help. the president funded assisted outpatient treatment, which allows courts to order homeless, seriously mentally ill people who have become hospitalized as a result of failing to stay in treatment, and it allows courts to order them to stay in treatment for up to a year while they continue to live in the community and the president did that. ed: wow we appreciate you bringing insights, the book is " insane consequences" pick it up right now and really important subject for us to tackle want to make sure everybody hears you loud and clear. thanks for coming in.

delivered. well done, ed. the dnc is facing backlash from the parties own candidates for president. that criticism coming after the dnc announced it is raising the bar for candidates to qualify for next months democratic debate but the 2020 democrat corey booker, he's not happy. >> it's the exposure that is incredibly valuable and it has always led to us to a spite in contribution. we missed out on that. it was frustrating. i'll point out a bad call if i see one and this is on the intended consequences. pete: here to discuss our panel democratic strategists, kevin walling and joseph pinion, thank you all for being here this morning. kevin i'll start with you. he says he's calling out a bad process. well maybe the voters don't think he's a great candidate. how much is sour grapes? >> i think that is a lot to do with it, pete. we have to win over our candidates we don't have 20
6:26 am
people on that stage and if you're not polling within 5-7% of some of those early states which is the new requirement for the dnc for that january 14 debate in des moines, you're not going to be the nominee of our party. pete: 5% in dnc national polls or 7% in two early states joseph if you're not polling at that point in these states, should you be up there? >> i mean this is ridiculous. democrats have gone from pandering to black people to now they are trying to inject affirmative action into the debate process so at the end of the day, it's up to the voters and up to the people but the reality is the democrats that ran it happens to be black and brown, ran a poor campaign, that's why they're not resonat ing with voters and using corey booker and pete buttigieg in south carolina, a majority of black voters. pete: and plenty of white candidates dropped out too because there's no support for them. erin what do you make of the current state of the field on the democrat side? >> well we know the last debate

was very poorly in terms of television. pete: oh, we'll get to that. >> i don't want to jump the gun here. pete: it's okay. >> there's too many candidates you lose track of whose who, all polling between 2% to 5% if not lower and they need to do something more difficult for these candidates because honestly no one is watching and no one cares. pete: erin is now leading the segment because she knows where we're going with it. it's her day. >> [laughter] pete: the debate to her point hit a ratings low for the 2020 cycle there were almost more people watching primetime and the fox news channel than watched it on cnn in realtime. is that concerning to you? >> sure it is. i mean, i think people are just exhausted. obviously it's the christmas season, and this past thursday was the debate. and folks have better things that do than watch these candidates get out. i thought it was a really good debate and you saw lines of distinction between our candidates and frontrunners mixed it up and i think a lot of people caught clips of it and i

actually as a democratic strategist didn't watch it live and i watched it the next day so i'm one of the americans that watched something else that night, should have went out to dinner but i think americans will tune in as we get closer we're about 44 days from iowa polls starting on february 3. i think that's when americans want you to tune in as we get closer to the process. pete: i know you're a republican but if this was your process and you were watching the ratings dip and candidates fight to be on the stage how would you feel? >> this is what happens when you cancel the price is right and put on live with jerry nadler and it won't resonate with the american voters and you want to talk about what's going on with democrats we heard in the last hour we got 330 murders in baltimore, right? people are dying in this country and democrats are more concerned about president trump's tweets so again if they want to continue to have us here in impeachment perking a tori until the end of time, the longer we stay there the faster they go towards hell in a hand basket. pete: erin you're talking about free stuff for illegals and the

ed: well there is a clip from greece, do you call people nerd, geek, people teasing sometimes it becomes bullying so a psycho therapist now in great britain claiming that calling someone a nerd or geek could actually be called a hate crime or it should be and here she is and then we'll react. >> very high iq people are among a minority group in society that are very much ignored and they are not understood and are largely neglected, so it is the case that individuals with very high iq's very often are bullied, at
6:35 am
school for example, they are a target for being bullied often quite viciously. if you look at those legislation that relates to hate crime hate crime is simply about somebody being targeted in a negative way for who they are, and a person with very high iq who comes across in a different way often is targeted in that way. ed: look bullying is a serious issue, but the idea that if you are picking on someone else is a hate crime? you're a lawyer. >> well that's a problem that i see obviously sure iq is a characteristic but it dilutes what a hate crime is, and that is that something that it is such a big deal and especially to the point legislatively that we take it here with law enforcement, if we throw everything in the kitchen sink to it then there's no value to it. it's not going to be as crucial any more. pete: tell that to bill gates. i think i've always had an issue with hate crimes but if you kill someone or you assault someone you committed murder or assault, and you should be charged with
6:36 am
that, but what you're thinking, or why you're doing it goes down a dangerous trail. who are the protective classes what's your motivation what's the accepted politically correct group think of whose a victim and whose not. ed: the point is it was murder. pete: yes like hate crimes where does it end and where do the protective classes end and how do you determine motivation and it just, it's a bad precedent to set as you go further. we've already gone a long way and now you'll add a nerd? ed: to the point about bill gates he was probably picked on. pete: i'm sure he was. >> and we talk about someone got 15 years for burning an lgbt q flag, so as you're saying you know? pete: exactly but do you get 15 years if you burn an american flag? >> right, no. pete: because that's a protected class and hate crimes. listen do you know what the in other words always get? they gel their revenge. because you end up working for them. ed: this might be a topic we tackle
