12:00 am
off to shannon, one of fox news gratis, shannon, take it away. >> shannon: thank you, tammy and i love that guy change i love that guy so much. obvious homage from cousin eddie from christmas vacation. i feel like we would be good friends. i would like to meet him. breaking tonight the house of representatives overwhelmingly supporting donald from its demand for $2,000 checks to americans. the first wave of smaller payouts as previously planned. the extra dollars face an uncertain future in the gop senate. fiscal conservatives cut in the middle, the right-leaning wall street journal editorial board saying the president's stand on the $2,000 checks jeopardizes the georgia senate races. mitch mcconnell faces a tough choice about whether to put that
12:01 am
$2,000 check, possibly splitting the gop, this two critical senate runoff seats in georgia. if republicans lose to georgia see a majority republicans across the country, the 2000 contact increase. other commentators pointing to the swapy for nato items which donald trump, sudan complained it is open for business thanks to 700 million us taxpayer dollars heading its way, telling al jazeera the economy will open in a way that will allow individuals to flourish plus there's reportedly every vote of the paycheck protection program for small businesses touched in that deal as well. negotiations along in this election year, even this week admitting in effect check the republican claims that nancy pelosi blood covid-19 will be 40 times is mostly true.
12:02 am
welcome to fox news at night. let's begin with capitol hill correspondent chad program as the house approves what the president wanted interest payments, this is just the beginning. >> reporter: there were only $600 in direct payment to the original bill, the bill donald trump signed into law last night. donald trump bolted that wanting to thousand dollars of democrats saw an opening, the $2,000 stimulus check bill on the floor tonight but there was a lot of resistance from republicans. >> look around the room here, looks like i'm in the u.s. congress. i see the american flag there, george washington is over there. it says in god we trust but looking at this bill that makes me feel like we're in the parliament of afghanistan or bolivia. do we really think for way to improve quality of life for americans is to just print more money from the fed?
12:03 am
>> reporter: that was 275-134, only 44 republican supported language many worried about the price tag, this proposal cost $463 billion according to the joint committee on taxation. when republican told me their anger is incandescent at the president tonight and a twist, democrats backed the president this evening. >> i'm telling donald trump don't just talk about it, act. the senate republicans have followed you through thick and thin, get them to act and support the $2,000 check. >> vermont senator bernie sanders says he won't let the senate leave for new year's without a direct payment of the plan is probably dead. they need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster. shannon: could they have gotten more money had nancy pelosi
12:04 am
moved earlier? this is been going on for months. >> certainly republicans blame nancy pelosi for driving this out, she rejected a host of proposals over several months, pelosi only came around to the $2,000 when she saw the political opening, she pounced on that and it will still take weeks to get these benefits out the door. >> congress also acting in another way they could make the president not so happy tonight. >> that's right. the house of representatives tonight overrode the president's veto of the defense bill, the vote 3 and 22-87, 109 republicans voted to override the veto. the president vetoed the bill overleveraged to change names of bases named after confederates and donald trump wanted lawmakers to tack off a provision to terminate section 230. that gives legal protection to internet firms. the theme of these two floats is republicans broke with the president not on one issue but two issues. the schedule the next few days dealing with the veto override
12:05 am
in the senate the can come up as early as tomorrow but we think this will drag out until new year's eve and donald trump has never had a veto overridden. >> knowing you regardless of whatever holiday plans you have i know you will stay on the so thank you very much, we appreciate it. one.3 people went through checkpoints on sunday, the highest 1-day total in 9 months, despite the warnings try to avoid holiday travel, the death toll is climbing in the us. aishah hasnie is tracking it from new york. >> reporter: all of this happening as vaccine rollout it's the bags and millions of americans get ready to celebrate another holiday weekend. places to go and people to see, and millions of americans ignored warnings from health
12:06 am
officials to avoid travel this holiday, the tsa screened the most passengers in a single day since the pandemic began and 1 million passengers a day for the last days in a row. >> it is big. there's a lot of people here. >> reporter: studies suggest the risks of getting covid-19 on a plane is low, health officials worry those packed airports could be hotbeds for viral spread. with christmas in the rearview officials are pressing for the new year. new yorkers lined up and shred the worst memories of 2020, this will be the last crowd you see in 2020, times square would be close to the public on new year's eve with folks left to watch the ball drop virtually. the new year was supposed to bring much-needed hope but now new york's attorney general
12:07 am
investigator brooklyn medical clinic accused of privately giving covid-19 vaccines to people not included in the state's distribution plan and those who are in the plan are still waiting. the cdc reports 2 million americans have been vaccinated. a far cry from the 20 million goal by the end of the year. white house testing sources that number is likely higher. >> the 2 million members probably an underestimate. we distribute to the states 10.8 million doses. we are going to distribute another 4.7 million this week so by the end of this week in the hands of the state over 15.5 million doses. >> if you're wondering who is next to be vaccinated it will very state-by-state but in general the cdc recommends frontline essential workers or police officers, teachers, ghost or store workers and anyone over the age of 75.
12:08 am
>> thank you for helping to track that, appreciate it. investigators try to figure out what motivated the national christmas bomber. we are learning officials are examining whether the suspect may have been motivated at least in part by 5g paranoia. what is that? mike tobin has that part of the story. good evening. >> in a 4 trace back to an unnamed investigator who told abc news they are looking strongly into the possibility that the motive for the attack was something called 5g paranoia. that anthony quinn warner was paranoid that the technology was being used to spy on people. 5g paranoia has manifested in a number of forms on. spreads
12:09 am
coronavirus or has resulted in in blocks of birds dying, none of these the recent ever proven true. what investigators have stated on the record is that warner's dad works for at&t when he was alive, the vehicle bomb was parked to the at&t building but investigators say at this stage connecting the two is just speculation. rick loud is one of the few neighbors who interacted with anthony warner, he tells fox news the refuses at tech hinted he was about to do something big. >> i'm going to be famous and the world is never going to forgive me. and i didn't think anything of it. >> reporter: police released body cam video from officer who shows his response to the blast. the aftermath shows streets littered with debris and panic from those who did not evacuate. physical evidence is being analyzed to determine the components of the bomb. shannon: thank you for staying on the story. in for no devastating local churches even as recently as today. we are following the shocking
12:10 am
crime during secret holiday observances in holidays of warship. >> reporter: a potential hate crime but the atf investigator fire in a black church in springfield, massachusetts. you see what little is left of the pews given the fire started monday morning investigators say a lot of reasons to be suspicious. >> the basement and first floor area, talk about an hour to get under control. the church burned at nighttime from potential hate crime. >> reporter: there have been other fires in that area. a large black church burned in south carolina. >> we got here the fire had advanced. just stay strong. hopefully you can meet in that building tomorrow.
12:11 am
>> heartbreaking to know the place i love learned about god's word, ablaze. >> reporter: investigators don't know what started that church in long island, 250 families don't have a place to worship after the lutheran church burned, that fire on christmas day, in cape cod, the christmas eve burning of a nativity scene, also suspicious. shannon: very disappointing and let's hope person investigators who are excellent at what they do track this down. cancel culture targeting schools in san francisco. a school board advisor committee regarding the barrier rename dozens of schools including abraham lincoln high school. the committee chairman claiming lincoln never showed through policy or rhetoric that black lives mattered to him.
12:12 am
claudia allen is tracking the story. >> reporter: this is still abraham lincoln high school but not much longer if an advisor to the committee has its way because in their view the president who helped end slavery did not value black lives enough. and his name along with many others needs to go. the 12 member panel is targeting 44 schools in san francisco named after leaders whose actions in the past are deemed problematic by today's cancel culture. in lincoln's case the committee says he was insensitive to native americans and blacks alike, and support of the transcontinental railroad which, quote, led to the significant loss of land and natural resources as well as lifestyle and culture for many indigenous people. schools named after washington and jefferson also have to go because they were colonizers and slave owners. diane feinstein on entries on the list even though the liberal senator was the city's first female mayor but in 1984 she
12:13 am
allowed the confederate flag to be flown outside city hall before she ordered the flag to be moved. it has sparked backlash from donald trump, so ridiculous and unfair and from the city's democratic mayor who says the district's top priority should be getting its 54,000 students back into the classroom. >> i'm upset, i am mad. i need them to get their act together. we shouldn't be having a conversation about anything else. >> reporter: still likely with a replacement name would be. the san francisco school board will have the final say on what will be a costly project, $9 million by one estimate and still no timeline for when kids will be able to resume in person learning at whatever named school they attend. >> reporter: thank you. the owners of the california salon, officers storm their building yelling at customers
12:14 am
and employees because they decided to stay open in defiance of covid-19 restrictions was the salon owners are speaking out tonight and join us live next.
12:15 am

12:17 am
12:18 am
>> reporter: a confrontation between the california restaurant owner and a los angeles health inspector, camera showcasing frustration many small business owners are experiencing about abca24 restrictions and inspections. let's talk about with the owners of a salon in stockton a similar run in with authorities. great to have you both with us. you guys have health inspector and in doing everything by the book and then this raid right
12:19 am
before christmas. you were servicing customers, the officers -- what happened? >> we had five armed police officers with body armor burst into our salon shouting stop everything you are doing, and no one is going to be allowed to leave, they told our customers if they tried to leave they would be arrested. >> reporter: you were issued 3 misdemeanor citations but didn't close. what is the plan? are you worried find? penalties? where do you go? >> every day we are worried. we did close in august and our stylists were asking us if we would open up so they could earn a living. they get $167 a week if they get anything at all. they don't get enough to survive so we committed to them, to our industry to fight this all the way. we are never going to close.
12:20 am
we are going to stay open to the bitter end. even if they show up tomorrow. >> reporter: the governor repeatedly talked about the rise in numbers of cases in california, you just got to go along with us because we are trying to save lives. you talk about your stylists and i read about them, they couldn't access aid, they were desperate, we need to put food on the table, they publicly said we understand the friendly people are getting sick and dying but we think there is a way we can work and save ourselves economically as well. >> no justifiable data supports closure of our industry. public tv and radio station released data that 208 conference outbreaks at chain restaurants, 125 at large retailers, 0 in hair salons. it makes no sense to close our
12:21 am
industry. it doesn't have an impact on the infection rate, not at all. daymac what did it feel like to have armed officers with body armor come in, put everybody on notice, it had to be startling. didn't seem an appropriate response to fire restrictions? >> reporter: it was humiliating and terrifying and we are honestly just trying to earn a living. we have strict safety protocols and we are strict about that and we won't let people in if they are not wearing a mask properly. you see customers put in that position right before christmas, seems like stylists, she had tears in her eyes, this is so wrong, we are trying to earn a living and you guys are so clean in here. it was heartless and mean and i
12:22 am
feel bad for everyone in my staff who had to go through that. >> we are showing video, people who were capturing it with our cameras and cell phones, you have misdemeanors, you say you are going to stay open. tell me what your legal plan is at this point? >> >> it a while, a well-connected attorney out of los angeles, frank jones who is the lead counselor and lobbyists, support, filing a lawsuit against gavin newsom, filing an injunction against the stay at home order. we should be allowed to stay open. this lawsuit is specifically for our industry to start. we expect to be filing that lawsuit this week.

12:30 am
camp he was connected to, the washington free bacon, joins us live, good to have you with us. >> reporter: you talked with anthony washington, a man who is an adult now. he went to this camp as a child. what did he tell you about his allegations and note from the start we reached out repeatedly to the warknock campaign and indications director and not heard anything back. >> i didn't either. i hear you on that. these are very disturbing allegations coming out, the first details we are really hearing about what was going on with the abuse allegations that the camper. i spoke to a camper who went there when he was 12 years old. his family sued rafael warknock directly in the camp in 2003 for experiences he went through at
12:31 am
that camp. he said he was mistreated by counselors, that he was locked out of his cabin and forced to sleep outside on the basketball court because of a form of punishment and he described a chaotic environment at the camp. that he witnessed other campers being grabbed physically and it was just a disturbing situation for 12-year-old to go through. it is very interesting. you contacted warknock on this. i contacted him as well and we've not heard back from him. i think he has avoided addressing questions on this and kind of gone after people who bring this situation up, that is a political attack. he is going to have a harder
12:32 am
time dismissing this because this is a person telling his story. has no stake in this and it was really just a traumatizing and disturbing situation. >> the door remains open. we want to hear from the warnot camp. what they have to say to rebut or explain his claims. tell me, reverend warknock what was his connection to the camp. if somebody had a distance connection to something and something attributed to them in the midst of a political battle i would like to know what his role was in the camp. would he have known about these things? what do you know? >> great question. he was the senior pastor at the church that was running the camp. he was head of the church. talked about his role of expanding this camp. the situation in this lawsuit he was a defendant in the lawsuit addressed by this camper and his
12:33 am
family and he was arrested for allegedly interfering with a child abuse investigation and those charges were later dropped but there are a lot of connections. this is not a trivial one off issue. you have three separate state agencies investigating child abuse allegations under his tenure. five cases brought against the camp's director and the camp had his license revoked for failing to report child abuse so this is just a one off matter, this is something that there was a connection and i think he needs to address that.
12:34 am
shannon: if you want to read more about this, washington free beacon, doing a lot of reporting and talking to the camper as well. be a judge for yourself and we repeatedly contacted the warknock campaign and welcome them to give any statement on this as well. i want to thank you. senator marco rubio calls him a liar and doctor anthony fauci admits to moving the goalpost on herd immunity and will use the worst is yet to come. our panel debates next.

12:39 am
special needs are being underserved due to the failure to provide in person learning options. using public money for private school tuition. doctor anthony fauci defending himself in a new york times article admitting to slowly and deliberately moving the goal posts on when the country could reach herd immunity saying he previously was offering estimates. >> the reason i was saying 70, 75, i brought it up to 85, not a big leap to go from 75 to 85. it was based on calculations and p are extrapolations from measles but if i were to be honest and humble nobody really knows for sure. shannon: let's break it down with no chair ethan bearman, charlie kirk and author of covid-19, the politics of fear and the power of science, doctor mark siegel. welcome to all of you.
12:40 am
so marco rubio has called anthony fauci a liar. the federalist said under the headline he admits he treated the american people like children saying, quote, we are not being told the truth by public officials or the media. they are trying to manipulate us, not informed us. it is not a matter for experts to simply decide and then lie about the signs to compel adherence to their plan. enough is enough. what say you? >> i want to start with the science on this and i'm scratching my head because anthony fauci compares this to measles and measles is solid as a rock. we know measles is the lowest contagious virus known to man it we have a vaccine that is 95% effective and we know we have to get 90% of the population vaccinated with measles in order to get herd immunity. that based on calculations as the doctor says that there is no
12:41 am
way herd immunity would be 90% or covid-19 because it is not as contagious as measles, nowhere near close as contagious as measles of his initial estimate of 70% makes a lot of sense especially if this vaccine holds at 95%, the new modernand pfizer vaccines. i don't see any reason to raise the number so i don't like the word liar in this context but i don't -- i'm puzzled by the motivation behind changing the number. nothing has changed other than the fact that we got a vaccine that is way more powerful than we thought it would be. if anything the number needed would go down, not go up. shannon: the science of side we get back to this point the federalist is making, he acknowledged slowly and deliberately moving the goalpost.
12:42 am
that is their words, what they said about what he did, when you're trying to get everybody to have confidence in what you are saying to comply with the request. >> he kind of said 75%, 85% is not that big a leap, that is 50-60 million people, talking about a massive, the entire american population it is a huge difference in this goes to a broader point, something we learned this year which is people don't trust people in charge anymore and for good reason. anthony fauci said mask didn't work, then downplayed the risk of the virus, he was on both sides of lockdowns and then moves the goalpost by the new york times owned observation when it comes to this and this is not a good trend when the citizenry no longer trust the people that are telling them, whether health advisor political advice for good reason all of a sudden you get instability. it is not a good thing and anthony fauci should have to explain with great specificity and detail why exactly he acts
12:43 am
as if it is no big deal to all of a sudden change these very important numbers and people judge and make different decisions on this so i think it is a troubling thing to say the least. shannon: you in california are having a tough time navigating all of this as numbers and cases are up and deaths are up. the governor says governor says it will have to be extended. the san francisco says this is an opinion piece today, about what they call the illogical lockdown orders. people will find ways to congregate with or without restrictions because their sanity depends on it. if they are barred from safe places like playgrounds and sports fields they will gather in door which will only prolong the spike in cases. we talked about polling that shows people say they are less likely to wear masks at home
12:44 am
than when they are out and about. how does california get this right? doesn't seem to be paying off, the strict measures. >> reporter: a really difficult problem and part of it goes back to lacking trust. some of it has to do with when you misrepresent what people say like anthony fauci when he talked about the masks, a shortage for healthcare workers and scientists, besides is followed for wearing masks but the 1-size-fits-all approach doesn't always work in a very difficult state like california where los angeles and san francisco, very dense population versus our rural counties and it frustrates people. i don't support the outdoor dining man. it is the wrong move because what the writer said but we do need to wear masks, we need to listen to basic epidemiologic that says wear a mask, keep your distance, wash your hands frequently, you can't take this lightly, one in 1000 americans have already died related to
12:45 am
covid-19. if you care at all about other people's lives, not just your own you will follow those basic steps but california officials cause their own problems through this. shannon: two different things. want to discourage people from buying masks because he wants them to be there for healthcare workers. another thing to say they don't work and then say they do work. how are we to go about trusting medical professionals and others at a time when it is so clinical in this country and around the world? >> i agree about the inconsistencies and people get very afraid when they hear leaders say one thing one day and another thing another day. inconsistencies in california make no sense. they looked at outdoor dining dining and found with a lot people down together and don't let them out of the house they spread covid-19 within the house, that is where 70% of the spread occurs was as far as masking is concerned i also agree that it is epidemiologic we shown to be effective but a
12:46 am
lot of these population studies came out over the course of the pandemic. we have to be fair and say we learned over the course of the pandemic and as the virus spread more and more it became clearer and clearer the effect of masking and social distancing, washing your hands, not traveling and having large gatherings, all of that science even all but of course you shouldn't say one thing for political reasons one day and another thing the next day. that is how you lose the american public. shannon: a quick response from you. >> i agree with that in the best way to deal in a crisis to be clear and honest, anthony fauci would have said all along i don't, best estimate of 65% a%, people would have cut him some slack. if he had given a speech alongside others in the spring and said we don't have the personal equipment we need, we believe these things work, instead the changing of the narrative, why people don't trust their rulers and people in charge, bad thing for any

12:52 am
we've seen an increase in domestic violence, homicides, people who are violence -- victims of domestic violence are stuck with their abusers but we are releasing lots of criminals because prisons won't old people over concerns due to covid-19 and some people they are releasing should not be released and committing a lot of these crimes but the real reason we are seeing a lot of this is we are not keeping people in prison. it is unrelated to covid-19 because we are going down this path that is ideologically driven that is saying the justice system is inherently racist, you got racist cops arresting people disproportionately people of color putting them in front of racist judges and racist juries and they are getting sentences and we've seen over incarceration so they are trying to correct except they are overgrazing giving and the

local law enforcement and endeavor to help those who are most marginalized and may be tempted to turn to crime in order to ease their financial burden. what about that part about supporting local law enforcement, this talk at some of these officers are going to be reluctant to get involved in certain situations. they are worried about mishandling getting into trouble themselves and weighing whether it is worth the risk to get involved in some of these calls. >> 100%. you have a movement across the country, defunding the police and were talking down the police constantly berating them in demonizing the men's going after them. there is a movement to make it easier to charge police officers for legitimate mistake they might make in the field and you are not only getting police officers to question the work they are doing but literally pardon the ban on but handcuffing them from doing their actual job in major cities from seattle to portland to minneapolis and new york, simply leaving the department and going
12:55 am
to other agencies and policies and policing there. that's good news for those cities, the smaller ones that don't really deal with the level of crime the major cities are but we've seen the statistics, bear out the defund the police movement and the general culture of demonizing police is directly resulting in more crimes. >> it takes a toll and we always say nobody wants a bad cop out more than a good cop and the vast majority of them are and want those cases handled but they feel under attack these days, see you again soon, thank you so much. >> happy new year. some good news before we say good night, check out this military homecoming in florida. he gave his mother the best christmas gift, surprised her when she was out eating breakfast, she can hardly believe it, the crowd broke into applause, in camp pendleton the last eight month set to deploy after a visit home. go online, fantastic video of him surprising his aunt and
