3:00 am
this helps you understand where we are. that's all we have for tonight, i have important news to tell you must not only thank you for joining us, judge jeanine is next for michael >> fox news alert. two major stories we're covering this morning. breaking taliban's grip on afghanistan. growing by the hour. militants reportedly moving into kabul right now. [gunfire] overnight the u.s. evacuating embassy officials out of kabul by helicopter. rachel: breaking overnight. 300 people have died after a 7.2-magnitude earthquake in
3:01 am
haiti. lawrence: the united states sending aid. unfolding the situation in afghanistan. david spunt joins us live from washington. david, what do you know? reporter: the situation continues to rapidly deteriorate. we do know the taliban has not officially taken over the capital of kabul. we know they entered the outskirts of kabul, prompting a lot of concern internationally, certainly for many scared people that live and around kabul and parts of afghanistan. the fifth largest city i should say in afghanistan, jalalabad has been taken over under control by the taliban. that happened several hours ago. people excited roaming through the streets as the group took over. this is the fifth largest city. fox news learned the u.s. embassy in kabul is being in the
3:02 am
process of evacuated as i speak to you. the embassy is technically open for business. it could close any day. kabul is surrounded by the taliban waiting to pounce and take over. president biden spending several days at the white house. he is at camp david where he was briefed on situation in afghanistan blaming former president trump for this mess. when i came in office i inherited a deal invited by my predecessor, he invited them to discuss camp david on eve of 2019. that left them strongest position militarily since 2001. the original goal was to get people out by end of august. that appears that moved up by several weeks. back to you. >> thank you so much, david. congressman carlos gimenez sits on the house homeland security committee. former fire steve of miami. he joins us to shed light on
3:03 am
this major breaking story. as you see the united states will out quickly. insert more troops than i believe were in afghanistan when joe biden took office as president, what do we make as rapid decline of the country? >> the decisions made by this administration regarding afghanistan are disasterous just like the decisions made by this administration, anything they have touched so far. southern border, inflation. look what happened to our country sofar. for him to plame president trump is really laughable because he has changed everything that president trump left for him. again, look at the southern border. a crisis of his own making. so same thing with afghanistan, another crisis of the making of joe biden. rachel: congressman, senator cotton has wade in on this as well. he says that biden must unleash us air power to destroy every
3:04 am
taliban fighter in the vicinity of kabul to save americans. anything less will further confirm joe biden's impotence to the world. is he right? >> absolutely right. we need to protect american citizens. we need to protect all the thousands of afghanis that helped us over 20 years. we owe them a debt. we need to get them out of there. if they're captured by the taliban, i'm sure they will being executed. we know those people. americans there we need to protect them. we need to use every ounce of american power to insure those people get out safely. lawrence: congressman, you guys are expected to have a briefing with the secretary of defense as people in the command staff joint chief. what do you expect them to say in this briefing? >> look, i don't -- what can they say. obviously this whole operation has been much booed. our intelligence agencies let us down also. they all kept telling us, don't
3:05 am
worry, the taliban yes, they will make advances. it will not be anything like this. we'll be able to get out in an orderly fashion. this is anything but. a complete failure of the biden administration. i'm rather upset at our defense department and our intelligence agencies foreallowing this to get to this point. will we mentioned in the introduction you spent many years in fire and rescue in south florida. haiti, a hurricane left 304 dead. 13 hurt. we saw a earthquake in haiti years ago. different than the united states of america, construction standards are absolutely minimal. what can we be done, what devastation should we expect.
3:06 am
>> this earthquake is two times stronger than the one that struck in port-au-prince. it is south of haiti. there are significant buildings there. while the death toll of over 300 is significant. i expect we'll see a lot more. that death toll goes significantly higher. i expect the united states to send our urban search-and-rescue teams there to help haitian authorities, whatever authorities are there. remember their president was assassinated about a month ago. the minister that was supposed to be investigating that assassination resigned because he had threats on his life. and so you know the situation in haiti, who is in control? we don't know, and whatever government there is in disarray. we need to go there and try to help the haitian people as much as we can. rachel: congressman, i know the
3:07 am
whole region there is you know, facing so many challenges. you and i spoke not long ago about the situation in cuba. do you have brief updates on what is going on there? >> no. the government cracked down on dissidents and they have shut down the internet. we're not getting much information what is happening in cuba. we asked the biden administration to help restore some kind of internet service where the cubans can communicate with themselves and us, the outside world. again we don't know what the biden administration is doing. we know that the technology exists. but we're getting, we're not getting many answers. rachel: so that has not happened yet, correct? >> no, it hasn't. rachel: shameful. >> absolutely. he, we feel, we know that the biden administration is surrounded, he surrounded himself with people that want to give a softer stance. who wants to have opening with cuba. we know that doesn't work. we need to support the people of cuba now. now is the time to give, the way
3:08 am
to communicate with themselves, issue stronger sanctions against individuals involved in the crackdown. really trying to strangle the cuban regime. this would be a good time to do it. i don't see that happening from the biden administration. lawrence: real quickly, congressman, i know there are haitian americans, quite a bit actually in your district. what would you say to them? i know some are trying to relocate with their family members. >> our hearts and prayers go out to them, their families. the united states needs to send aid down to haiti as soon as possible. in any way possible. i know that is going to be tough like i said before what government is there and little government that's there is very, very unstable but our hearts and prayers go out with them. they're part of our community. they're a huge part of our community and we'll always be there to help them. will: congressman carlos gimenez, thank you for being with us. >> my pleasure. will: turning to your headlines,
3:09 am

3:10 am
the nasa contract from the starship program amid complaints from jay bezos blue origin program. those are your headlines. lawrence: would you. will: you guys remember, i don't know if you do, a little earlier this week i had the privilege to go to iowa. iowa was of course the site of the movie of field of dreams. the setting for ray consella mowing down his cornfield where the ghosts of the chicago black socks came to visit and his father. a game was played this week at that setting t was a sight to behold. apparently americans enjoyed it. the highest regularly season baseball game in 16 years. almost 10 million people watched the game. rachel: kevin costner walked through the corn. he is a beautiful sight.
3:11 am
that is the beautiful sight to behold. 66 years old. holding up. rachel: i tell you man. lawrence: will, rachel, i'm not a big baseball fan. it is one of those sports i have to see in person but the cinematography, the way that fox covered this, i wanted to be there. i think it was a moment to unify the country. there was so much bad news, we needed a americana field. we got it that night. will: opening scene, cinematography, kevin costner comes out of the kournikova field, music plays and white socks and yankees come out of cornfield like evident ghosts. to i spoke to alex rodriguez out there what made this site, this scene, so movie, so special. watch. of all the places you've gone to play or pregame where does this rank? >> this is number one. this is number one.
3:12 am
watching "field of dreams" as a kid, is such a story beyond baseball. it is all american story. it is a story about inspiration, making your dreams come true. about a father and son playing catch. listen, i'm jealous i'm not with the yankees playing white socks but one of these little kids get their dreams to come true. this is heaven on earth. as someone who is a baseball nerd, someone who loves baseball, someone who bonded over baseball with his father, mother, his siblings, we're in the epicenter what baseball is all about. will: a-rod is right. the movie was so much more than about baseball. i met a-rod. i met a lot of superstars, i don't get star-struck. i will say one morning we were there, costner comes walking out. i was nervous. i got a little bit, this is a big star, i got to thinking, i did this on the will cain
3:13 am
podcast at one point, which movie stars if they're in the movie you're in you will watch? i didn't mention costner at that time but i think he is. if he is in it. i love yellow stone. the netflix movie about bonnie & clyde. "field of dreams," bull durham, dances with wolves. rachel: i thought you were going to do this who is sexier costner or a-rod. will: welcome to take up that top pick. rachel: that is a sports topic i can actually handle. this is a point for the old guys. i still think kevin costner has it. i don't care, how old is he now? will: 66. rachel: 66. he is still sexy, good on him. lawrence: you were ready forethis morning. rachel: i was ready. i didn't know this was coming. my cards are on afghanistan. will: daydreaming. rachel: i'm permanently ready on the sexy hollywood stars.
3:14 am
a-rod looked great. kevin costner looked good. cinematic scene. will: a-rod looked great, kevin costner looked great, iowa looks great. it was magical. couple weeks ago phil mickelson took on tiger woods, tom brady, aaron rodgers with a golf match play in mon stan -- montana. the star of that was montana. beautiful matters. second, tradition. this is somewhat of a conservative insting but tradition matters. it got me thinking about other places you could do something like this. lawrence, how cool to see lakers and knicks in rucker park. lawrence: yeah, yeah. will: cowboys play in odessa like "friday night lights." lawrence: beautiful thing. lawrence: i know we got to go, guys. if they only allowed folks from iowa to go see it. people from all the country wanted to see that, but the

3:19 am
will: fox news alert, 5000 u.s. troops arriving in afghanistan to evacuate the u.s. embassy in kabuling as the taliban closes this on the afghan capital after capturing another key city. lawrence: that's right, will. our next guest was awarded purple heart after losing his right leg serving in afghanistan. we have retired green beret and florida congressional candidate jay collins. nice to see you, jay. the biden administration sending 5000. originally was to be 3,000. was this predictable? >> this is completely
3:20 am
predictable. doesn't take rocket science you project what you were doing may of this year. we would have zero troops by august 31st. you empower, enable the taliban. you push them forward in a spring and summer offensive with predictable results that shouldn't surprise anybody. will: we talked to, listened to, we heard the trump administration, now the biden administration show interest in leaving afghanistan. with that being the background, with that being the setting what would have been the proper way to exit that country? >> well the best way to do this take a strategic approach to this. first off, leaving in the summer months isn't by any stretch the correct thing to do. afghanistan is a seasonal fighting country. what i mean by that is, you start in the spring, ends in late summer, early fall, fall or winter doesn't really happen. we should have done a more prolonged withdrawal to empower our allies in the country. make sure we gave them the air
3:21 am
support during the key summer months. stand up and support and defend our country. i don't think anybody wants to be in afghanistan forever but we have to do this in a correct way. rachel: what is the impact beyond afghanistan with our enemies, china, russia? what is the global impact or foreign policy impact that you, that you see happening? >> well, it is really unfortunate. we've empowered, enabled the taliban in afghanistan. the same thing happen with iran, with china, with russia. our enemies see us on the world stage. the world is a better place when america comes from a position of strength and we're international symbol of freedom. people look to us to lead by example. in this case the biden administration is failing our country, failing the world by lack of strong leadership on this situation. lawrence: you know, jay, the biden administration has issued this warning to the taliban. this was saturday. this is what they said. we conveyed to the taliban any action on their part on the
3:22 am
ground in afghanistan that puts u.s. personnel or our mission at risk there we will be met with a swift and strong u.s. military response. is this going to be taken seriously? >> you know unfortunately i don't think the taliban are taking the biden administration seriously at all. you have to come from a position of strength and power and the biden administration is completely, and repeatedly shown they don't have the courage the moral strength to stand stand uo what is necessary for this country. i hope and pray -- rachel: too late at this point, bring in more air power, reverse the situation, or is this kind of going to spiral out? >> it is never too late. we can absolutely safe kabul to start pushing back the taliban across this country but it will have to take initiative and leadership by the biden administration. i hope and pray they will listen to the advisors. they will figure out that this isn't in the best interests of
3:23 am
our country, that region or the entire world. we have to contact now. as you mentioned it takes air power. continuation of ground forces to help and advise. he has to listen to his advisors though. rachel: jay collins, candidate from florida. thank you for your service. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you so much, i appreciate the opportunity. rachel: coming coming up a virgd is slamming his school board to indoctrinate his children. >> these are our kids, not yours not ideology. new projects means new project managers. you need to hire.

3:29 am
christian. when we went to school as much as the government wanted top indoctrinate us the teachers didn't allow it. now in the 21st century we have social justice warrior so-called teachers are trying to shove their garbage ideology down our kids throat. these are our children, not yours. their job is not to raise my child or my neighbor's child. their job is to teach our kids math, science, biology, literature and that's it, not ideology. rachel: loudoun county parent joins us now. dennis for joining us. you're a brave man a lot of people in america a lot of parents out there are very inspired by you and i guess, i look at this, you're an immigrant to this country. i presume you want your children to have the american dream. as you said, you want them to learn biology, math, science,
3:30 am
reading, english. how frustrated are you that that is not what the school is focusing on? >> yeah, thank you for having me on the show. i love this country. my parents took the greatest risk to come here so we could have a better life and i want my kid to have a better life than i did. when i hear this kind of stuff it pisses me off because the kids nowadays are distracted with so many different things other than their school work. now they're being all this stuff, ideology stuff into the school. and just to remind you, i don't hate the lgbtq community, i love them, they are part of the society. and the problem lies here is that these, these distractions from the school curriculum screws with everybody, all children, including the lgbtq, including the minorities, blacks, hispanics. that has nothing to do with hatred.
3:31 am
this is part of systemic ideology that they want to pass on. i don't know why. i have a clue but that is the issue. rachel: so what do you think it is? >> when i was growing up in iran the system in the school system, they made, they made sure everybody was educated. they were they had a separate agenda for indoctrinating children. here they are making our kids dumber. when i came in here in 1993 as a 14-year-old, my math level was at a high school level. when i sat in 8th grade, i was at a senior level capability when i sat as an immigrant who didn't speak a word of english. what they're doing is they're dumping down the children. they're not making them smarter. they're distracting them with
3:32 am
all these dumb ideology stuff. they want to push their agenda. i have no idea what the end result is going to be but this has to stop. we are creating dumb children with small children. this is why a lot of people are complain about immigrants who come here, succeed, people who have been here for two or three generations they are not succeeding in life. rachel: you make a great point. i have friends who live in loudoun county, the taxes there are no joke. you're paying for this. you say you want your kids to get information and curriculum that will help them succeed. why do you think more parents are not speaking up or are they beginning to? >> the problem is we don't have a platform. if we speak up, people are afraid of backlash, get fired from their work, their neighbors won't talk to them anymore, their friends will hate them, this and that. you know what? i grew up in a rough neighborhoods of l.a. i have tough skin.
3:33 am
these things don't phase me. i'm the same way at work. i speak my mind. i came from a country who didn't allow me to speak my mind. now i'm here. i will speak my mind. i will tell you how i feel. if that hurts your feelings, so be it. this is reality. truth hurts. truth hurts. if this is something you can't handle then seek some professional help. see what is, what is bothering you. i am always straightforward with my children, with my wife. i love you. but the thing is we need to show these people they don't run our community, we run the community. we are the people. we chose you to do the things that we want you to do, not what you feel like doing. these people are voting on things because, if they want to be woke, good for you, we'll recall you. we'll get you out of the seat as
3:34 am
soon as possible. we'll replace you with somebody who will listen to the majority of the parents. rachel: yeah. >> we want our kids to be educated with the proper tools, not to be distracted with garbage ideology. that is the whole point. rachel: yeah. well, listen, as i said you're channeling the feelings of so many parents across this country and i love that you are never afraid to speak your mind. you're a wonderful american and we're so proud to have you on our show. >> thank you for having me. i appreciate it. rachel: god bless. all right, coming up protests erupt in europe as backlash grows over covid-19 passports. nigel farage joins to us react in the next hour. but first disgraced governor andrew cuomo believes he would have won if state legislators and lawmakers had moved forward with impeachment. congressman nicole malliotakis says resignation is not accountability and she joins us next.

3:39 am
rubble across the island destroying entire towns. will: officials fear more than 2000 people are hurt but hospitals are already overwhelmed with patients. ashley strohmier joins us with the latest. ashley? reporter: recovery efforts have been slowed as the island was rocked with 15 aftershocks. more expected in the coming weeks. this earthquake struck north of the nation's capital of port-au-prince at a depth of six miles. a woman and a child were pulled clawed through what has been homes and shops. one small church was nothing but a pile of rocks. many already overwhelmed with coronavirus patients. haiti's foreign minister declared a month's long emergency as they look for hundreds of people not accounted for. this is more powerful than the one in 2010 that left as many as 300,000 people dead.
3:40 am
one woman who fled after that, said she and island never recovered from that. >> i'm having a chills and goose bums. you are trying to get healed and it hits again. reporter: the president was assassinated in his mansion last month and gang violence has surged. president violence sent a u.s. aid team to the island which will help assess the damage and help to rebuild. back to you guys. lawrence: thank you, ashley. >> devastation in haiti is far from over as tropical storm grace heads towards the country. let's check in with chief meteorologist rick reichmuth. rick: we're two days away from grace moving over the island. will bring a lot of rain. hard to say who will get the worst of the rain. at this point the dominican republic, the other side of the island of hispaniola will get the worst of it. i hate to say that for the dominican republic. i shape for the folks in haiti
3:41 am
that rain stays away. it is moving south of puerto rico. this is almost the exact track what tropical storm fred took a couple days ago. it brought rain towards haiti and towards the dominican republic. from us with grace around five days from now, this will be across central parts of gull of mexico, the water is very, very warm. we'll talk about some impact from grace. hard to say how strong of a storm but somewhere along the gulf. fred in the short term is probably enough off the coast of florida. good news for florida. rain not as heavy as initially thought t will probably get the act back together before it makes landfall sometime tomorrow, late afternoon across the central parts of the gulf of mexico. will, send it over to you. will: thank you so much, rick. governor cuomo take as victory lap after the state of new york drops the impeachment investigation against him. soon to be former governor
3:42 am
telling "new york" magazine i did the right thing for the state. i will not drag the state through a three or four-month impeachment and win make state legislature and state government look like a ship of fools when everything i done all my life for the exact opposite. new york congresswoman nicole malliotakis says cuomo's resignation is not accountability. she joins us now. thanks for being with us, congresswoman. why is the resignation not enough. >> look it is clear that the governor resigned simply so he wouldn't face impeachment and it is well-known throughout the entire state and country that the legislature had the votes to move forward in impeachment. a majority of the democrats alone in the house called for his resignation. so he was going to be impeached. he was just trying i guess cut a deal it seems because this wasp dod by the assembly judiciary committee on friday, weekend, hot day in the summer. no one is paying attention.
3:43 am
now he is trying to change the narrative but the reality is, there is still a number of investigations out there. i believe the judiciary committee needs to move forward with its investigation in the assembly. in addition we know the attorney general is still looking at him because of the book deal, the five million dollar book deal which he used state resources to garner. you know is still being investigated by u.s. attorneys for the nursing home coverup, which they didn't disclose information to the public about the number of deaths. so there is it still other things happening here but i think the reality is it is not over for governor cuomo. i do believe there needs to be accountability because of 15,000 individuals who died in these nursing homes due to his decisions. will: governor cuomo's arrogance aside, astounding quote of ship of fools and winning impeachment aside a moment is impeachment the right type of accountability? i know you talked about the
3:44 am
criminal investigations and those all need to move forward, i remember when it came to president trump there were those that sought impeachment out of office, many of us made the argument the point of impeachment is to move a citying officer, a politician from office. as we search for accountability for governor cuomo is impeachment the property path to take if he is no longer in office? >> well, i mean again that is what, why they have to look at the constitution. the state constitution is not clear as to whether a, somebody who already been removed can be impeached. that is why many of the assembly members, particularly on the republican side have said we should move forward with the impeachment and at least the investigation. they have been examining hundreds of thousands of pages related to the nursing home scandal, related to safety on the mario cuomo bridge and of course sexual harassment and that information should be disclosed to public. let the public also be able to

3:46 am
in fact during that press conference i even encouraged individuals to get vaccination but for some reason i violated youtube's guidelines. after we appealed it twice, my content reappeared, after taking a second look they decided it didn't violate the content. there needs to be transparency how it makes the decision. congress needs to move forward repealing section 230 to make sure we take away the immunity they have. they need to disclose the public why content is being removed, what standards they are using. seems to me it is arbitrary. will: like a tumor, it seems to be growing their instinct to boot content off seems to grow any pushback on vaccine passports. their instinct is silence. congresswoman malliotakis, thanks for being with us. >> thank you. will: we reached out to youtube for a statement. we didn't hear back. lawrence to you. lawrence: turning to headlines a man is stabbed outside after

♪. rachel: we're following two major stories this hour. first, breaking right now, taliban militants moving into afghanistan's capital as negotiators are preparing for a transfer of power. lawrence: that's right. also breaking overnight the rising death toll as a powerful earthquake rocked haiti. the effort underway to send help to the caribbean island ahead of a tropical storm closing in. will: we start what is going on right now in afghanistan. we have trey yingst standing by in the middle east. but we start with david spunt in washington. david, there seems to be video across my social media feed.
4:01 am
everyone who can is getting out of kabul. reporter: they're doing it as quick as possible, will. this is taking many people, including military officials by surprise. we do know right now that negotiators from the taliban will be heading to the presidential pal last at some point today to talk about a peaceful transfer of power according to the associated press. the ap reporting that the taliban has taken over bagram airbase which house as prison with some 5,000 prisoners. so we'll have to follow what happens there. right now authorities are on the outskirts of kabul. this is in jalalabad, a city in the east, the fifth largest city. it is significant because this move that the taliban took over jalalabad, it will cut off kabul from the east for any type of aid or assistance. fox news learned the u.s. embassy in kabul is in the process of being evacuated. as i speak to you now the embassy is technically still open.
4:02 am
it could close any day right now. kabul is surrounded by the taliban, waiting in many instances to pounce and take over. residents are frightened. >> life has become difficult for people. people worry about the how, the way taliban treat us before and now it's a little different. we want peace. reporter: president biden meanwhile spending several days away from the white house. he is at camp david for the weekend where he was briefed on the situation in afghanistan. he has 5000 troops in the area for several weeks to help evacuate people, flights for embassy personnel back to the united states. continue to take off to the get people back to safety. the original goal was to have this done several months ago, at least by september 11th, 20th anniversary of the attack. now end of august. it could be really the next few days. back to you. lawrence: thanks, david. rachel: we'll bring in fox news foreign correspondent trey yingst live from the middle east.
4:03 am
trey, tell us the latest. reporter: there is a lot of questions right now about what happens in kabul amid reports that the taliban has entered the out skirts of the city. currently meeting with top officials trying to figure out some sort of a transition of power. i think the good news right now for the region, we have not seen the violence that many feared would happen when the taliban an terped the afghan capital. over the past 8 days we saw this group take over 31 of the 34 provincial capitals across the country. there were these scenes of fighting between afghan security forces and the insurgents but now it appears like some political solution could come out of the situation in kabul only to avoid what could be some sort of mass casualty situation. over the past several days there were these questions what would happen to afghan president ghani if the taliban actually made it to kabul.
4:04 am
now that we see the situation unfolding, peace negotiators in qatar meeting with officials trying to send a message they want some sort of peaceful transition of power. we do want to note though the bagram airbase news coming out, david reporting a few minutes ago, is extremely concerning to the afghan civilian population. we're talking about thousands of taliban prisoners are considered criminals and in some cases extremely, extremely dangerous people inside of afghanistan. when you talk about freeing many of these insurgents, it is not only going to allow the taliban to reinforce their ranks, but also exert the force and fear among the population that is the major concern. what happens when these u.s. troops are able to get the embassy personnel out of the country what is left behind that is the big question this morning. will: judging from video we're seeing, trey, the answer to that question is very bad. traffic jams of people trying to leave kabul. seems to be interpretation of
4:05 am
those 5000 american troops isn't going to be there to help them this in way. what about all the people that helped us, trey? what about all the interpreters, thousands of people that aided american troops the last two decades. what happens to them? reporter: there was a hope by this administration, the biden administration, they would be able to help the terp terms and translators who will be targets for the taliban to get out on time. everyone caught on their heels though. we saw a few days ago the u.s. intelligence community their assessment of the situation call kabul could fall in 90 days, then turned into 30 days and now just hours. when kandahar fell those were major indicators, taliban rapidly advancing towards kabul. what happens to the u.s. allies who were with u.s. troops following 9/11? this 20 year war alot of people along the way helping american forces, even the drawdown.
4:06 am
we still saw many afghan civilians and professionals trying to help the americans conduct their mission, ultimately draw down the force presence there in afghanistan. there is a program right now, it's a special immigrant visa program that the united states is offering to many of those u.s. allies on the ground but reports indicate there are upwards of 80,000 applicants and only one or 2% of them have been flown out of the country. we're seeing images in kabul of streets filled with people, cars blocked in traffic jams. many heading to the airport hoping to find a way out of afghanistan before the taliban formally takes over. we've seen a lot of statements from taliban officials they will not target civilians or those who worked with the afghan security forces or u.s. military. that is all fine to say on paper. it is fine to put out in what happens on the ground is likely different. i spoke to a member of taliban that works in the media wing of the organization and that
4:07 am
official said there was no consensus in the conversations between the afghan government and tall ban over conversations taking place in qatar over the past several months. ultimately the one phrase that spokesperson used was islamic system. that really gets to the core of what the the taliban is looking to do here. they're looking to implement a islamic system. that means very bad news for the civilian population in afghanistan, particularly women. lawrence: trey, i want to pick up where you left off because it is such a critical question. talk about the people of afghanistan. talk about the taliban. they plan on imposing sharia. they're sunni islamists. are people resisting or are they buckling to the taliban's rule? reporter: it depend on what part of afghanistan we're talking about. many of these provincial capitals, you saw the taliban simply walk into the city and take over. there were no firefights in many of these areas in afghanistan. that is in part because they do
4:08 am
have support in many parts of the country. there is this growing frustration among the civilian population in afghanistan about the current government that is about to be replaced by the taliban but there is also a very large percentage of the population that has lived in a westernized society. we saw olympians. we saw scientists, doctors, some of the brightest minds in the world coming out of afghanistan. women who previously when afghanistan was under taliban rule had to constantly cover their hair, in many areas cover their faces. they weren't allowed to work. they were not allowed to study. that is the major concern for this population and we've already seen it according to reports in some western provinces taken over earlier by the taliban, officials walked in, said, to women, they could no longer work at the bank. they could no longer study unless it was a religious-based study on the koran. that is extremely concerning for
4:09 am
the population what is out there. they understand the opportunity is there. the taliban hours away from taking control in afghanistan, going to take away many rights and freedoms for the afghan people. rachel: that is devastating. we heard of the taliban coming in and just stealing 12-year-old girls, putting them into forced marriages. also heard of other atrocities and war crimes, beheadings of some of the national forces. so hopefully things won't continue to spiral in that direction. will: we will check with you later in the show, trey. thanks for the update. america's new crime crisis. we have a chilling new video from this morning. this is new york city a killer gunned down a 21-year-old in a deli. this comes days after shocking video showing a gunman sprinting down new york city streets in broad daylight. the cover of the "new york post" on your screen right now. a still frame of the gunman
4:10 am
shooting down, i don't believe it was the store clerk. it might have been the store clerk at that bronx area deli in cold blood. lawrence: not surprising. climate of new york city. climate across the country, allow criminals to run rampant, definanced police. cops can't do their job. defund the anti-crime unit responsible for taking guns off the street. being proactive undercover, agents going in there to arrest criminals. d.a.s decided people should not be locked up, back on the street. you have judges that say you should grant bail to people repeat offenders. they have established this climate. you're playing russian roulette. only a matter of time before it hits you or someone you love. rachel: we saw that all last summer. i think of my own state of wisconsin in kenosha, looked like beirut. media was saying it was a

peaceful protest. lara trump is blasting democrat leadership for a surge in crime on justice with jeanine last night. >> the case is being made for republicans right now with democrats in leadership. you look around the country, it is in democrat-run cities you see these massive spikes in crime. people literally getting punched in the street, robbed in broad daylight in cities like new york city, that used to be a safe place to be. they no longer are. so really i think that the republicans are being given a gift. it is a sad gift. it's a gift we don't want. we don't want to see this happen in america. but we need to make sure that we are standing behind our men and women in blue. will: you can see it was not justice with jeanine but justice with lawrence jones. rachel: i was as sleep. we get in so early. will: rename the network. rachel: i assumed lawrence would

so-called teachers are trying to shove their garbage ideology down our kids throat. these are our children, not yours. their job is not to raise my child or my neighbor's child. their job is to teach our kids math, safe ends, biology, literature and that's it. not ideology. lawrence: guys, what have we become? we're so behind right now. our kids have not been in school. i did a story earlier this week, a black parent is complaining about the principal that decided to segregate all the black kids into one classroom. i thought we wanted equality. i thought we were anti-segregation? rachel: we're going back. will: it is about equity. rachel: that is exactly right. this immigrant dennis makes such a great point. by the way, i came to america to speak my mind. he is speaking his mind and he is speaking for so many parents but you come to america as an immigrant because you want to
4:14 am
give your kids the american dream. he is saying they're using you know, basically their tax dollars to indoctrinate the kids. i ran, the mullahs tried to tell the teachers to do this, teachers were no, we will teach the kids math, science, biology. you see our teachers are complicit with did ideology that i think, our current administration is in line with as well and it is scary. there is not a lot of off shuns for people. not everybody can say i will pull my kid out to put him in a private school. maybe your private school is just like that. or maybe the private school is too expensive. now he says, we're going to get rid of these people. here is a clip from the interview. i thought he was a really articulate man. >> i love this country. my parents took the greatest risk to come here so we could have a better life and i want my kids to have a better life than i did. when i hear this kind of stuff it pisses me off because the
4:15 am
kids nowadays are distracted with some different things other than their school work. what they're doing, they're up didding down the children. they're making them smart der -- dumbing down the children. they want to push their children. if they want to be woke, good for you. we'll recall you. get you out of the seat as soon as possible. we'll replace to somebody who will listen to the majority of the parents. we want our kids to be educated with the proper tools, not to be distracted with garbage ideology. will: one thing he said in the interview, rachel, i really liked, we want school board members that reflect our ideas, not theirs. they're theirs to represent. so much talk about democracy, what about democracy being responsive to the constituents? how about cori bush helping her school districts? how about setting curriculum that parents wants? how about companies making products and reflecting values
4:16 am
their consumers share? what about the idea you represent something? lawrence: there is something powerful happening in the country. immigrants are taking the lead. this is persian man. he did not want this type of stuff being indoctrinated on his children. when you look at socialism, i don't call it crt, i call it the new progressive view of the world. this is how they view america. they don't believe in the founding. they believe we're racist in our hearts. all the white people should be deprogrammed. they believe if you don't go along with it you're a sellout. you don't believe in your people. that is nonsense. they believe the world should be changed starting with america. rachel: it is interesting, it's a religion. i thought it was interesting with him having to deal with the ideology, that religious ideology in iran. it is a religion, the way it is interpreted by the left, the way it its implemented, the way it is indoctrinated against the will of parents and against values this country were founded on, make no mistake. this is the left's religion. lawrence: so true.

thousands of protesters in france taking to the streets in defiance of their country's covid-19 vaccine passports for the fifth consecutive week of demonstrations against the government vaccine mandate. rachel: here to react, former brexit party leader my knowledge gel farage. welcome to the show. i'm impressed with the french people. europe was a little more compliant. it is nice to see the freedom movement. how reflective are the large protests of the majority of the country? >> let's just remember the french have a huge tradition for direct action and protests. they're good at it. their farmers do it for better conditions. their fishermen do it. they very often have success with all of this. they do so much protesting that the english have a little joke which is the french are revolting and they were revolting in paris yesterday,
4:35 am
about 425,000 of them in paris. that is a big number. that is in paris but it was happening in other cities around the country. there is a french resistance to this idea of a vaccine passport. i completely understand that because if you have to have a vaccine passport, well next year you will probably have to have a passport to show you have the winter flu job. ones you start the process where on earth does it end. a little bit of me i tell you, cheering on french protest because i don't want to have a vaccine passport to go into my local pub to get a beer. i don't want to have to do that. however, let's be realistic about this, governments, central governments now have more power than they have ever had before, and, they are working hand-in-glove with big businesses. so if we get to the point where sporting events, where big
4:36 am
hospitality chains and restaurants work with government to insist on a vaccine passport, it is very difficult to see where these protests end because ultimately you could finish up with two classes of french citizens. so i am cheering on the protests. i don't want to have a vaccine passport here in england, absolutely not but i'm aware of just how close big business and big government is. they might effectively put news a position where we're left with no choice. lawrence: nigel, it is not just passports though. we saw in australia where the health leader is telling folks you shouldn't speak to your neighbor. people wearing masks in your households. this is bigger than just passports. this is a new normal for a lot of these international leaders, right? >> oh, yes. oh, yes. australia have mishandled the pandemic worse than any other major country in the world and now, i mean, you know, australia
4:37 am
began as a pennal colony. we sent our criminals to australia. that is how the country started. it is a real prison because ace trawlian citizens are not allowed to leave their own country. will: not allowed to leave a six mile radius. >> wherever you look the pandemic is used by government to take away liberties, to take away freedoms, to take away our choices and i don't like it one little bit. if it wasn't for the power of big business they couldn't get away with it. as i repeat the point if big business in france, england or anywhere else, if big business insists having a passport before you enter a restaurant we're really up against it, aren't we? will: to be clear, nigel, to clarify, in australia, military is on the streets, you can't leave a six mile radius much less your country. clarify one more thing, to follow up on rachel's point, it
4:38 am
is fascinating 66% of the french people are vaccinated. what they're putting their foot down, vaccine passports. 400,000 in the streets s that a loud minority or is it reflective in your mind, in your observation of a french sentiment at large? that is what we're trying to figure out? >> that i think you're right. this does i think reflect a very significant percentage of french people. i would be surprised if it wasn't 50% or more. yes, france does not want this kind of state control. they have already got enough central government. i think the protests are not just a loud minority. in other countries perhaps we see that. the english are a bit more compliant. we always are, have been i'm afraid. there is a french rebelliousness. it represents a very large number of french people. this could be a battle that goes on for months and months and months. i hope liberty wins but i fear

4:44 am
exacerbates all the problems there. i will show you what i'm talking about. a storm moved through there couple days ago, hurricane fred. excuse me, tropical storm fred. now tropical storm grace, kind of in the exact same area southeast of puerto rico right now but in the next couple of days it will move right over the dominican republic and haiti, exactly kind of the same thing, same position we saw fred. you see where the earthquake was in haiti. southwestern haiti, a little farther away from the main population centerport a prince we saw in the earthquake in 2010 that killed 300,000 people. maybe a little distance was possibly helpful. this is grace eventually for all of us in the u.s. we'll watch the storm five days from now get in across parts of the gulf. the water is very warm. this is the peak season of hurricane activity. we'll talk about grace somewhere for u.s. impacts maybe around seven to eight days from now. in the short term we have fred. this is, kind of remnants what was fred. they're calling it remnants of
4:45 am
fred that said, likely expected to regather some organization a little bit later on today. we're finally haven't seen really much thunderstorm activity closer to the center like we're seeing right now. we're finally seeing that happen as it moves back over pretty significantly warmer waters. by tomorrow evening, landfall towards panhandle of florida, mobile, alabama. we'll see quite a bit of rain, five to eight-inches certainly will cause localized flooding concerns. back to you guys. lawrence: thank you, rick. crime is surging in major cities across the country but not in boston. the crime is actually down. the success is part of a proactive program led by reverend eugene rivers, a former gang member turned to activist. why he is believes boston is a model for the country. take a look.
4:46 am
this is where it all started for you? >> yeah. we moved into dorchester in 1987 and this is where we lived. as you can see there are the three bullets from the second occasion our shot was shot into. lawrence: let's set the scene for how life was in the city. >> that's right. lawrence: y'all start this community meeting. >> right. lawrence: you bring law enforcement, clergy, community leaders. >> yeah. lawrence: one table. >> yes. lord, we thank you and praise you for your goodness and mercy. we thank you for your law enforcement partners. lawrence: crime skyrocketing all across the country in liberal cities but not in boston. why? the community and police meeting together. they start with a meeting every wednesday to go talk to them. >> make sure our children are safe. >> this gang activity once we determine -- >> 39 bullets fired at our
4:47 am
house. five of them came through our living room. lawrence: in a lot of cities the police and the residents are at odds. they're not having these type of conversations. so how are you guys able to do this? >> effective community policing. >> we've got to do the work on prevention intervention side. faith communities have to step up. this needs to be said that the boston police department was supporting this kind of academic, educational cultural literacy. that is not being done anywhere else in the united states. >> in order to have a positive relationship you have to have a relationship. you have to be out there. you have got to be involved, be in the community. that is what the boston police. that what we promote. lawrence: how important is it having police leadership, pastors, community leaders working together? >> that is very important, very important. >> together we can do a lot of things, positive things. we cannot expect the police to make an impact if we're not working together with them.
4:48 am
>> we have experienced violence here in the city and some more recently. our numbers are nowhere near other cities. we have a really strong partnership quite frankly with the community and our police department. >> boston crime is going down, crime has been going down steadily, one. secondly, even when there is an uptick the faith communities and cops get together, so it doesn't become black lives matter, anti-cop, defund the police, none of that. lawrence: these kids, they respect you. i watched them interact. >> yeah. lawrence: they talk with you. they just don't respect but as a male role model. >> absolutely, look, this is a result of spending 20 years on the streets. lawrence: i guess my big question, is this a model for the country? >> let me tell you something. a model that says faith, communities, law enforcement partnerships are the way to go, with the commitment that the
4:49 am
faith communities as sacred institutions will provicek cue lar services in collaboration and partnership and transparency with law enforcement. this is the model. this is the prototype. lawrence: model for the country. will: really nice job. rachel: listen, faith is part of the answer. it is very clear. what a great guy. lawrence: also leadership. these men that are there are leading the way, telling kids, i see you, do what you're told, telling the cops, this is how we do it together. it is truly a model. will: i truly believe community policing has to be a part of the solution. a place where law enforcement is integrated and knows the neighborhood where they're working. it takes as you point out leaders, political leaders, faith based leaders. rachel: the numbers are coming down. lawrence: will other cities do the same thing, will? will: new jersey's democratic governor is on vacation in italy

rivera for his perspective. good morning, heal e doe. -- geraldo. >> good morning. will: you've spent a lot of time in war zones. let's talk about afghanistan for a moment as you see that country fall into the taliban's hands and this last ditch effort by the biden administration to protect the u.s. embassy and u.s. citizens and personnel there. what is your takeaway as you watch this all unfold? >> sadness, kind of bitterness, will. i did 11 assignments there, met many g.i.s who did not make it out of afghanistan or were carried out in body bags. it was a folly. we went in with the best intention. we got the al-qaeda, the forces that perpetrated the mass murder against us in the world trade center, the pentagon, that field in pennsylvania. we got revenge on the people who perpetrated that.
5:02 am
by 2011, that was 2001. by 2011, ten years later, we had gotten osama bin laden, the terror mastermind himself, the person who manipulated and committed that worst act ever against the united states. we should have left then in 2011 at the very latest, and i feel now that this unfolding catastrophe is a humiliation to the -- lawrence: why didn't we just go home, geraldo? >> i think, lawrence, that's an excellent question that historians will answer. i think part of it is just american spirit. we wanted to remake afghanistan. we wanted to take the savage, dope-growing nation where everybody is repressed and oppressed by this awful religious fundamentalist terrorist group, the taliban. we were ideal,ing we wanted to open schools, we wanted to remake the country.
5:03 am
not knowing that, you know, in afghanistan it's so backward, it's so savage, christianity itself is a capital offense. we were so ridiculously out of our depth. never gonna happen. rachel: that's one way to look at it, that we just nobly thought we could bring democracy and nation-building to this, you know, backwards place. other people are more cynical and say there was a military industrial complex that was profiting from war and from staying there. what do you think, what do you say to that? >> i think, rachel, you're on to something. i think that future generations should really ponder this. i are have no doubt whatsoever that there are many, many people in washington who never saw a war they didn't like. they wanted to commit u.s. forces to every conflict everywhere, they want to impose a pax americana as if we were able to dictate to the world how people behave.
5:04 am
it was preposterous. i tell you one thing, rachel, and this really is so irksome to me. at the end we were defending the afghan poppy fields. we enriched a whole generation of their bureaucracy and their rulers and their warlords. we threw hundreds of millions of dollars. they say that our total commitment, the u.s. taxpayer paid $1 trillion and 2,500 g.i.s, more importantly, lost their lives there, and for what? to line the pockets of despicable, self-serving, you know, warlords and so forth. it was awful. and to the naivete, thinking that the afghan army, 300,000 strong, would stand its ground and defend its country was preposterous. will: right. >> they ran as soon as the taliban peeked their heads up,
5:05 am
the vast majority of that 300,000 after an began force disintegrated. and without the u.s. backbone, there was nothing. will: there is, geraldo, a third option, and i don't profess any particular expertise, but it is the noble nation-building -- is it the idea in the thursday alternative that by taking the war to afghanistan, it kept it from coming to our shores. as long as we were constantly on the offense, it would keep terrorism away. i'm afraid we'll soon know the answer to that question. but i really want to focus on the now, geraldo. are we leaving the right way? we're leaving people that a aided the u.s. behind in the wake, leaving them to the taliban. we're leaving overnight, retreating while simultaneously putting soldiers into kabul. is the biden administration leaving the right way? >> it's chaos, will. you see how unprepared the biden administration was for the utter collapse of the afghan army and
5:06 am
the government and the infrastructure. how naive have we been? first in the trump administration, then the biden administration in thinking that the taliban negotiators were really honestly pursue ising a peaceful transition. they were just suckering us to leave so they could pounce. they knew the afghan army was a paper tiger. you know, i am so glad we are leaving. i am as embarrassed and humiliated and hurt as anybody else. eleven assignments is a long time. you meet a lot to of g.i.s, a lot of families, and to think of all that we have expended for what? for the seeds of chaos that you're watching? you know, it is a sad day. it's very rem -- reminiscent of vietnam. at least there was a decent interval between our leaving in 1973 and the collapse in 1975. here we're leaving in, we're
5:07 am
supposed to leave in september, and the collapse came a month before that, in august. so it is a real embarrassment. but the g.i. fought their hearts out, they left with their honor intact. it is the bureaucrats and that military industrial complex which is a real thing -- rachel: it is a real thing. it is a said in afghanistan -- sad day in afghanistan and in kabul right now. it's also a sad day in haiti. i know, geraldo, your beloved puerto rico has dealt with natural disasters, you covered haiti as well. but it's such a poor country. it's so devastating. your thoughts. >> it was very sad to hear that another, yet another earthquake had hit, you know, haiti. the last thing haiti needed -- rachel: yeah. >> you know, the pearce nation in the western -- poorest nation in the western hemisphere. i was there in 2007 when the awful, awful earthquake claimed a quarter of a million lives,
5:08 am
imagine that, over 200,000 dead haitians. this one not so bad with, it's in the hundreds, still horrible. haiti not even recovered, there's no government this, the president was assassinated in july by colombian mercenaries of all things. it's a country in name only. it's really existing because of the largess of the not-for-profit organizations and the united nations and red cross and so forth. i pity what's happening there. you know, admiral kirby, who's now the spokesman for the can defense department, was, he had an aircraft carrier there providing aid and comfort to the haitians in the wake of that awful disaster. but it's as if haiti is cursed. [inaudible conversations] lawrence: geraldo, are they even quipped to handle something like
5:09 am
this? >> oh, no. lawrence: who's going to help them out in. >> there is no leader there, lawrence. i remember in 2010 looking at the presidential palace which was a gorgeous building during the duvalier dictatorship. the whole central column of the presidential palace had collapsed, and it was so symbolic of haitian government, the fact that there was none, that it was collapsed. again, you have tremendous corruption. a lot of the aid that was given in 2010 -- and i had a debate with hillary clinton about it at the time -- a lot of the aid was just siphoned off by corruption -- rachel: by the clintons, geraldo? by the clintons as well? it's embarrassing. >> all i know is that whatever aid provided by the clinton foundation and all those other ngos, where is it? where are the houses that were
5:10 am
supposed to be built that were earthquake-resistant? where are the, you know, the government buildings and so forth? nothing has happened. the people are just left on their own devices. and i would not be surprised if this latest earthquake causes yet another wave of undocumented immigrants from haiti trying to be boat people, trying to get to florida to flee their locust-plagued nation. rachel: yeah. if they're smart, they'll gold to mexico, and they'll -- they'll go to mexico and get in a hot easier -- [laughter] >> that's another discussion. rachel: geraldo, always great talking to you, thank you. will: thanks, geraldo. turning now to your headlines, a man who worked for jeffrey epstein says he's ready and willing to testify against prince andrew. the sun reports he would testify on behalf of virginia who has accused the prince of sexually

there's no prosecution of stuff like this. rachel: yeah. you're so right. you're is right. and it's so interesting because the owners are former -- lawrence: former cops. rachel: so of course they're going to take this very personally. of. will: you know, you see videos come out from protests where someone's waving a flag, it honestly happens when someone's waving a blue lives matter, you see it jerked away. that message, set aside how you feel about that message, is one worthy, one vulnerable, one open to being physically attacked. you know, vandalizing something is a physical attack. instead of just disagreeing it's okay to aa front that view -- affront that view, you know, to respond. if you're forgiven for responding in a physical matter. and i say forgiven in the culture at large. here's a is simple sticker that has become a target. lawrence: will, you make an excellent point that this has become the new acceptable -- will with will that's what i'm
5:14 am
getting at. -- lawps lawrence if you don't like what someone has to say or what they stand for, you can lip -- rip it up, vandalize, assault them. i don't want to sound like a broken record -- will: when you villainize your political opposition, look at the way we're talking about unvaccinated people today. when you oathize someone, you can do what you want. rachel: i think this took place with the the maga hat. i know moms were saying please don't go around with that maga hat because with something bad could happen to you. the blue line, you see this otherrizing again with vaccinations. and i was so intrigued with your interview with these vets earlier that it's really in our country, it's not the racial division, it's not the racial prejudice, it's really a political prejudice. if you speak your mind as a
5:15 am
conservative, and let's be really honest, you can't survive in corporate america. you will be ostracized, your career will be damaged. there's very few places that people with conservative views can speak openly anymore besides this network. lawrence: and what's crazy is he gives this on his show tonight, when they talk about diversity, when you look at the amount of money that they pledged in the wake of george floyd, $50 billion, they've only given out $250 million to these organizations. they don't believe this, but they want to reflect this on you. and it's just sad. because it's defining the country, and they're making profit on dividing the country. rachel: that's going to be an interesting special tonight, for sure. will: coming up, cutting wokeness from class. one immigrant turned u.s. citizen is joining the fight to rid schools of critical race theory. lawrence: and inflation fears are spike, but we've got you

lawrence: fox news alert, president biden sending 5,000 u.s. troops in total into afghanistan to evacuate the u.s. embassy in kabul as the taliban closes in. my next guests know all too well the sacrifices of america's longest war, his son, christopher dean horton, died there. joining us now, our gold star fathers david horton and tom -- we're going to work on tom. david, i know everyone is talking about the politics surrounding this. >> yes. lawrence: you lost a son here. what is your reaction to what's going on right now? >> well, my son, christopher, went to afghanistan, you know, for manager that he -- for something that he firmly believed in, in, you know, not only fighting, we feel, for the freedoms that we have here, but
5:21 am
also fighting for the freedom of the afghan people, you know, from the terrible tyranny of the taliban rule. and so much liberation in that sense has been accomplished. you know, gold star families, we're just heart broken over the scene, the situation that we're seeing, you know, in recent news reports. and now we're counting down the hours just watching, you know, the scene fall apart. gold star families are heartbroken, veterans are disappointed, and it's -- we're really almost bewildered by it all, that so much treasure and so much, you know, bloodshed,
5:22 am
our sons and daughters went out there and gave their all on that battlefield of that nation, and now we're asking the question what is it all for, you know? lawrence: yeah. a lot of veterans are asking that question. i want to bring in tom speaks, he's the father of navy feel patrick -- navy seal patrick. you served as well giving your son up to fight for this country. what is your reaction to all the developments that are happening right now, sir? >> well, good morning. it's, as david said is, it is disheartening. but the thing that gives me solace as a gold star parent is that, you know, patrick was a navy seal. he was there to defend the nation and our way of life. he had done two tours in iraq, and he was in afghanistan when
5:23 am
he was killed. matter of fact, tomorrow, the 16th, is the ninth anniversary of his death. but the payoff is that, you know, we haven't had a major terror therist attack on the u.s. homeland -- terrorist attack on the u.s. homeland in 20 years. so while we have expended a tremendous amount of blood and treasure in both iraq and afghanistan, those sacrifices were not in vain. and gold star parents, spouses, siblings should all hold their heads high about their loved ones' service. it's tremendously important not to lose that. that being said, it is very bewildering, as david said, that the administration -- and not just this one with, the previous -- seem to be without a plan on how to conduct the military operations over there and especially orderly and
5:24 am
effective withdrawal of our citizens. lawrence: david, i want to go back to you. what would your son christopher say about what's playing out right now? >> well, he would be -- i really believe he would not only be disappointed, but completely outraged by it. so much has been accomplished that just seems to be, you know, going down the drain. we, especially in the terms of the women in afghanistan that we've been telling for years and demonstrating that they're going to to have their rights. and i was with the former ambassador at one point who told
5:25 am
us that all the accomplishments that women have made there, women in the judicial system, women judges have been appointed, and and they've been allowed to go to school as girls and women training and colleges and those sorts of things which the taliban forbids. and, you know, i think christopher would be saying what are we supposed to tell them? what are we, the united states of america, supposed to tell them about what's happening today? lawrence: yeah. tom, i'm going to ask you the same question. your son was in combat. what would patrick say? >> probably incredible. i think, again, echo what dave said. a week before he died he had texted his mother and said, you
5:26 am
know, i feel like we're really making a difference over here. and and to see all of that kind of get lost is heartbreaking, you know? i had an opportunity to visit afghanistan in 2017. i got to see some of the progress that our troops were making, and now we've taken just really giant steps backwards. the real losers are the afghan people, especially the women as they go back under the extremely strict sharia law that the taliban is promising to reinstate in afghanistan. lawrence: yeah. david, tom, thank you so much for your is service and your sons, and i want you the guys to know from the bottom of our hearts at fox that your sons' sacrifices, it wasn't in vain. we appreciate you both. >> thank you, lawrence. >> thank you. lawrence: we remember and honor the sacrifices of army

rachel: here to react is former education secretary under reagan, former drug czar for president h.w. bush and fox news contributor bill bennett. bill, welcome to the show. so great to have you on, always a pleasure. you saw this man's video. what are your thoughts? >> it's great, terrific. look, math, english, history, music, art, science, that's what schools should be teaching. parents' priorities, teach our children the difference between right and wrong, how to read, write, count and think. that's what they want in american schools. they don't want this ideological baggage. parents should be free to choose the schools where they do the right thing. rachel: right. and isn't that the answer, that we should start attaching the money for the education of the child instead of the system so people like this very brave dad can just escape the system? >> right. yep. west virginia model, give the money to your child, eight

5:41 am
seen wages dip below uninflation which means people's standards of living are declining. they should be concerned. will: yeah. let's put it, actually, let's make it visual. let's put up a chart that shows exactly what's happening with wages and inflation. you can see while wages go up, people are making more money, inflation rising outpacing that wage growth meaning you make more, but you can buy less. that's the fact of what's actually happening with your dollars. now the question, andy, is why. why is this happening? >> well, inflation is obviously surging, and i think there's basically three reasons for that. one is supply and demand. demand is way, way up, and supply chains were hobbled, they were damaged during the pandemic. people couldn't work and businesses didn't know what to order. over time that will dissipate, but more importantly, the fed has been issuing $120 billion every month in new dollars so that the government could continue borrowing debt. that means our money supply's up about 32% since the pandemic
5:42 am
began, and the more money you have out there, the more you print, the less it's worth. and then you've got this huge government spending spree, you know, they're now talking about in addition to the $5.3 trillion we already spent, the $1.1 trillion infrastructure bill, now hay want to do a budget -- they want to do a budget with $3.5 billion more spent which would be about $5 trillion if fairly marked. and joe manchin, look, joe manchin gets this as do larry summers and steve ratner, economists under obama and clinton. they're pouring fire on an economy that's already ablaze. i mean, it's going to overheat, and you're going to see inflation continue to rise. and the money we printed, the money that's out there and the government spending that they're authorizing, unlike the bottlenecks that powell and secretary of the treasury yellen keep talking about, those will go away, but this money and spending will not go away, and that's bad news for american

5:53 am
in certain situations. small congregated indoor situations if you do wear a medical grade mask, it can lessen transmission. it doesn't get to zero, but it does lessen it. and some people are saying you can wear a cloth mask outdoors, which we know does nothing, so they're trying to tailor it, but they're more just grasping at i straws at this point. we really should be focusing on increasing vaccination rates, we should absolutely be acknowledging the fact that if someone has proof of prior infection if, that is also immune protection and maybe be wearing high grade medical masks in specific scenarios, not necessarily a blanket mandate. will: i think any type of contextual conversation when it comes to vaccine mandates or the vaccine in general is completely off limits. you're not allowed to have those conversations, and yet there's this, and i'll leave to you what we take from this. pfizer and moderna are looking to make more than $60 billion in covid shot sales in 2021 and

5:55 am
unfortunately, is look to other countries who are doing data collection because we don't want to just taken a what pfizer and moderna are saying. we want objective evidence, and that is what we should be focusing on, not necessarily the data just coming from the drug companies. but, again, the cdc has continued to drop the ball on data collection. will: i think we're going to look back at this moment in history and think, wow, we could have and should have been asking more questions, looking for more truth. whether or not the vaccine is the appropriate choice for everyone is almost beside the point. we should be able to have a conversation that the encompasses all the information. dr. staff fire, thanks for contributing this morning. >> thanks, will. will coming up, can they that might be a sore loser. how the communist company is inflating its olympic medal count. that's coming up in the next hour. ♪ ♪

rachel: we begin this final hour with a fox news alert. the taliban closing in on kabul as we speak. will: a defense official telling fox news the full evacuation and closure of the u.s. embassy is expected any day now. lawrence: trey yingst joins us live from the middle east with more. trey, it was 3,000 troops, now it's 5,000? >> >> reporter: that's exactly right, and there are a lot of questions about what happens next. there are u.s. forces on the ground right now working around the clock trying to get all of the u.s. embassy staff out of afghanistan. a big concern that kabul could fall before nightfall. there are reports right now that top taliban officials are meeting with the current afghan government to put together a peaceful transition of power,
6:01 am
but there is a real fear among the afghan civilian population about what happens next. in the coming hours, we could see sharia law immediately implemented across afghanistan, and the civilians there know exactly what that means. it means a completely different life especially for women. but there were a number of extremely concerning developments as the taliban looks to finish off their offensive. they've already taken 31 out of the 34 provinces in afghanistan, and this morning we've been able to confirm reports that bagram air a base, the prison there that was housing more than 5,000 criminal, was overrun by the taliban and, ultimately, all of those prisoners were set free in some capacity. these aren't petty criminals, these are hardened taliban and al-qaeda fighters that were previously overseen by u.s. forces on the ground in afghanistan. we do not know where afghan president ashraf ghaani is, but
6:02 am
a number of reports officials are looking to leave the country immediately, and there are civilian airliners who have turned around flights that were headed to kabul because the airport right now completely overwhelmed with evacuations. will: you know, trey, i was looking at this morning some information from just over a month ago where president joe biden was saying that the afghan national army was prepared for this moment, prepared to defend afghanistan saying the taliban was nothing like the north vietnamese. my question for you is as we watch this and the timetables move up almost ad hoc, you know, decisions seem to be being made on the back foot. how ill-prepared was the biden administration for this moment >> reporter: look, there were some clear, clear miscalculations made by the u.s. intelligence community and the biden administration. in the past several days, we saw the fall of afghanistan estimate
6:03 am
go from 90 days to 30 days to 72 hours, and now reports that the taliban fighters are inside the city limits. and there are questions, how did this happen? how did the u.s. intelligence community get it so wrong? and how did no one see this coming? i mean, there were u.s. forces on the ground, and we heard this over and over from the president himself that the afghan security forces were 300,000 men strong, and the taliban had just around 75,000 fighters. but they were able to execute this offensive in around eight or nine days where they basically drove all of afghanistan's reserve forces to the south where they knew a number of key cities would be fought over x then they launched this amajor offensive in the north and able to take over the entire country in the matter of a week and a half. rachel: trey, it's really remarkable, we've been there for 20 years, we're spending so much money there. i think a lot of americans are
6:04 am
are wondering if our intelligence agencies are just so distracted with maybe domestic politics. i saw a quote from senator tom cotton, he said this wasn't just predictable, it was predicted that this would happen. it's really hard to wrap your head around why the biden administration would take a chance like this and the humiliation. have you gotten any feedback from military at all that are there or were just there about how they're feeling about this really humiliating retreat? >> reporter: look, there's a lot of questions by members of congress who are scheduled to be briefed later today on the developments about what happened and how it happened. already after we were talking about this earlier, my phone started getting a lot of texts and e-mails from lawmakers and their staff. people clearly keeping a close eye on these developments because there are real world
6:05 am
consequences to what happened and what's up folding right now on -- unfolding right now on the ground in kabul. and i think the interesting and important thing to remember is that afghanistan historically and why originally in part the war started, it was a hotbed for terror activity. and there's a real challenge ahead for the biden administration and the international community about how to at least in some capacity keep an eye on afghanistan so that groups like al-qaeda, isis and other extremist organizations aren't able to launch attacks against the west from afghanistan. as it stands today though, the taliban will be in control, it appears, within a matter of hours. and the situation on the ground will deteriorate to a level and a standard that will put the afghan people back decades. lawrence: trey, thank you so much. excellent reporting as always. you'll be here later on in the show as well. thanks so much. to another fox news alert, more than 300 people are dead in haiti after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake.
6:06 am
rachel: officials fear more than 2,000 people may be hurt. will: phil keating is live in miami. phil? >> reporter: good morning. you know, hay i think just can't -- haiti just can't seem to escape crisis after crisis. just a month ago its president was assassinated, and now the country is struggling with a surging death toll from yesterday's massive 7.2 earthquake which happened 125 miles west of the heavily populated capital. the powerful quake rocked not only port-au-prince, it was also felt in cuba and jamaica. in the capital buildings collapsed as did cathedrals, whole streets ruined with crushed and crumbled houses. the catastrophe has overwhelmed hospitals. all day long saturday people scrambled amid cries for help to pull people from the rubble and just bring them out to safety. here are a couple of kids saved. the latest death toll is more than 300 now, that's a number
6:07 am
expected to grow and potentially9 into the tens of thousands. the largest haitian-american community in the u.s. is in partnership miami. >> those people are really poor. imagine crumbled houses with no parents or no family or no kids. i'm a survivor, so i know how they feel. i'm having chills. goose bumps right now. >> reporter: eleven years ago a 7.0 earthquake devastateed port-au-prince killing an estimated 300,000 people. the country has been rebuilding ever since. saturday's quake happened west of the capital, and that that's where most of the heavy damage is anticipated but with getting there is still a challenge. the u.s. geological survey said the only positive was that the energy from the earthquake went
6:08 am
westward. special sunday services are being held for the victims and survivors today here in little haiti in miami as the search and recovery for victims as well as survivors continues. and now potential crisis again, tropical storm grace headed all the a way directly for haiti which could severely hamper rescue efforts and not only trigger massive mudslides. back to you. rachel: thank you, phil. such an unfortunate thing, to have the storm come in just as they're trying to do this recovery effort. thank you, phil. let me bring in jake wood, he is the cofounder and ceo of team rubicon. jake, your team is on its way, i understand, to haiti to begin the help that your team is going to offer the island and the people who are suffering there? >> that's right. we had a team that staged all day yesterday in florida, and we'll be making its way to haiti early this morning, in fact, probably in the next couple of hours we'll be touching down. that team will immediately begin
6:09 am
assisting local officials, other ngos in identifying the resources we need to bring in over the coming hours, days and weeks to help the people of haiti recover. lawrence: tell us about this process because as you very well know, they don't have a president there right now. the country's already experiencing high poverty, and then you have this tragedy that is happening. so what is the focus of your group? how are they going to be able to get the resources out, and what can we do? >> yeah. well, certainly, you know, just like in 2010 this is going to require kind of a global effort. the nation of haiti is not going to have the resources that are necessary to coordinate this response. they are going to need, likely need international assistance. the good news is there are literally hundreds and thousands of nongovernmental organizations that are working on the ground in haiti who have the capacity to bring some of those resources
6:10 am
to bear with. i know team rubicon, we have over 150,000 volunteers throughout the united states. we have a very specific group of volunteers that we deploy internationally into moments like this made up of former military veterans, doctors, nurses, paramedics, emts, specialists in things like water sanitation. these are the resources that are going to be required. as was indicated, you know, they're suspecting that close to a thousand people are dead. that may grow into the tens of thousands. we're not quite sure yet. nonetheless, there are tens of thousands of people likely injured, and haiti has a very low capacity before an earthquake to deal with that type of surge in medical need. this is certainly going to overwhelm what limited capacity they have. will: well, jake, we appreciate what you and team rubicon do, have done in the past. we know you were formed after the quake in 2010, and and we just really appreciate what you'll be doing in the next couple of days and weeks ahead. and by the way, let everyone
6:11 am
know where they can help. >> yeah, absolutely. if people are looking to denate and support our efforts -- donate, teamruin doneusa -- teamrubiconusa.org and make a donation. rachel: thanks, jake. we'll be praying for you and your team. will: we move from masking to vaccine mandates, there's always a push for the next, quite honestly, authoritarian measure. and honestly, what comes next is something that we've experienced in the past. i think we should begin to anticipate the conversation about lockdowns. here in new york city, that's already begun. the conversation has begun when it comes to schools. i want to share with you what one teacher group has asked, demanded for a safer, quote, safer reopening of schools. here's their demands according to the new york post, mandated vaccines for kids 12 and older, mandated masking, of course, more testing and tracing
6:12 am
protocols, ventilation which has constantly been on the demand list, but the real point of looking there is this one, the one second on your screen. an option for remote learning. what's old is new again. rachel: yeah. that might be what they really want. by the way, as far as the ventilation, they held them hostage last year, and we a gave them everything they wanted, billions of dollars that they can't even spend in one year. and, by the way, god knows how many kickbacks all these companies are getting from this. it's a travesty, and now they're doing this. lawrence: and they wanted priority when it came to the vaccination, and they got it. rachel: they did. lawrence: and they did get funding for the ventilation, as you correctly -- rachel: great point. lawrence: you know what? they told us this was going to happen. if you guys remember, a lot of the teachers unions and leaders started to say it is time to reimagine education. [laughter] that this -- will: they need to be careful what they ask for, they need to be careful because they might
6:13 am
just get reimagined out of the equation. let me tell you something, you're watching parents put their foot down when it comes to masking our children. trust me when you start saying our children have been to be vaccinated, and finally you had parents that were in remote learning for well over a year, 15 months of this stuff, it's not happening. it's not coming back. and, by the way, just get ready because we're going to have the conversation about locking down out here. it's gonna happen. the conversation will return, locking down. rachel: your point is a good one, and there's a great op-ed in "the new york post," i think it was last week, by corey deangelis, part of the education freedom foundation, and he said exactly what you said. he said i think they are pushing too far -- the op-ed said they're pushing too far. the unions are getting a backlash. you're now seeing more and more state moving in their legislatures to say i'm going to attach the money for education to the child, and that will be the death of the union. that will be a problem for them. and, frankly, with the way
6:14 am
scores have been in america even before the pandemic, even before they shut us down, we should be reimagining education. lawrence: that's right. rachel: because the way the public school system is working right now is not working, and it's actually hurting the most vulnerable americans out there. lawrence: the home team, home ground for identity politics in new york, they're going to be in a pickle though. new york times just came out, 30% of black young folks are only vaccinated in new york. so you mean to tell me apparently these kids aren't going to be able to go back to school? i'm telling you, it's going to be lawsuit after lawsuit and, you know what in they deserve it. they wanted identity politics, they're a going to be judged based on those kids that can't get the vaccination or refuse to because of what government did in the past. will: one way to win a game is to make sure one county score, make your sure you're the one counting medals. china's keeping its own count when it comes to the 40 -- to
6:15 am
the olympics. the official count was the united states winner, there's your overall standing. the united states had 39 gold medals to china's 38. but not according to china. according to chinese state media, they put this out. china had 106 total medals compared to the u.s.' 110, but they're claiming 42 gold medals. how are they doing so? by claiming hong kong, taiwan and macau's gold medals for their own. lawrence: this is what they do. they say our american soldiers invented covid and spread it throughout the world. i was really hard on the usa in the beginning because with we weren't doing so good. they came back, they toughed it out, and they won the gold, and we had the most medals -- they weren't doing so well, and i wasn't happy because i'm american, i support -- even though some of them are a little a crazy, they won it, and now you've got china trying to take
6:16 am
it away, but the world knows. rachel: you know who should pay attention to this? dr. fauci, right now when we were going where did this covid come from and china was saying it came from a wet market, and david asman asked dr. fauci and said do you trust what the chinese were saying, and dr. fauci said, yeah, i kind of do, you know? in the past i haven't but here i do. will: you know what? lawrence: that's the reason -- will: we should ask dr. fauci who won the medal count. [laughter] rachel: good point. will: i would like to ask nike, hey, nike, who won the official medal count? who won the most gold medals? i'd like nike on the record. ray -- rachel: or lebron james. lawrence: that's a good test. rachel: a great one and a foreshadowing of why we should not have the olympics in china.
6:17 am
because they cheat and they have concentration camps. will: i'll be waiting, nike. rachel: turning to your headlines, a 21 is-year-old is gunned down in a new york city deli. a man in a white tank top walked up and repeatedly shot the victim before running out of the store. the victim was rushed to the hospital where with he later died. no arrests have been made. shootings in new york city have gone up roughly 15% from this time last year. larry david says he was far from upset after being uninning violented to president obama's birthday bash last weekend. sure. the comedian says he was not looking forward to having to perform at the massive star-studded event telling "the new york times," quote, when he told me, i was 86'd from the party, i was so relieved. i screamed, thank you, thank you. he must have thought i was insane. then i hung up the phone, poured myself a drink and finished my crossword puzzle.
6:18 am
i don't believe that. all right. bo jangles is debuting its brand new fried chicken -- laster lawrence oh, baby. rachel: the company bills its taste as crust by, views -- crispy, juicy, packed with flavor. the first 200 were given out for free in nashville, and now we've got 'em here. will: got 'em on the table. rachel: what do you guys think? will: well, let's be real, lawrence and i just dust canned off one of these each in the green room, so -- rachel: you already know. lawrence: it's better than popeye's. will: you've got to get in here. look at that sandwich. lawrence: can i break it down? it's because they season it and then they have the spicy cajun sauce. rachel: oh, yeah, right there. lawrence: listen, the key to a chicken sandwich is the flavor has to be on the meat and the

6:23 am
will: fox news alert, american diploms evacuating the u.s. embassy in kabul aided by an additional 5,000 american troops deployed to afghanistan. it's a race against time as the taliban closes in on the afghan capital. here with her reaction, fox nation host march logan. good morning -- lara logan. we know you've covered this story closely, and we've all followed along for two decades now, but in the last several hours, quite honestly, it's all unfolding, it's all changing. what's your reaction? >> you know, will, i have been just this morning, the last few hours, on the phone with people on the ground in kabul and also other parts of afghanistan, and
6:24 am
it's a shock. i can tell you, it's a shock. you probably saw that on social media people are posting pictures from, you know, beauty salons and music stores, they're painting over pictures of women, and they're removing signs about music. and the situation in kabul itself is very, very, very tensing right now. there have been a lot of people, as many who could, have left the city, but the vast majority are still there. and just a few day ago the vice president opened up a mosque to all of the afghan, you know, internally displaced people who had fled other parts of the country, so the mosques are full of people who are sleeping are there. and, you know, the thing here is people know who the taliban are. they know exactly what is coming. and while the u.s. and other, you know, diplomats and governments have sold, tried to sell this idea of a new taliban and a different taliban to the people of america and the people
6:25 am
of the world, the afghans themselves know that it's a lie. and the other enormous lies here, will, one of the most frustrating things is to see across the media to read and hear this suggestion that because of the speed with which afghanistan has fallen, that this is an absolute proof that the afghans themselves want the taliban and that the american experiment has failed. and, you know, that is such a dishonest assessment that is being pushed. it really is hard to hear because it's dishonest. all of -- it dishonors all of the afghans who believed in the american idea. this isn't about the defeat of the united states, this is about the defeat of the whole idea of america, of freedom as a way of life and the american republic and everything that comes with that. and the reason is that you are watching in realtime on the world staging the absolute betrayal of every person who stood up for that idea, who fought for it and who believes in it.
6:26 am
and what you're saying is that when we needed you right after 9/11, when we needed your help because you, the after gans, you were the ones on the ground who were fighting the taliban on our behalf. yes, we had planes in the sky is, yes, we had 2-300 operators and green berets on the ground, with but you don't hold ground with 2-300 soldiers. you hold ground with the conventional army, and the afghans were that army. they fought and died in that war, and close to 70,000 afghan policemen and soldiers have fought for this. so when you see joe biden stand up in front of the microphone and say the after ap gans have to decide if they want to fight, what the afghans had was a terrible choice. they knew that their allies had abandoned them. the taliban knew their allies had abandoned them. how did they know? if because the presidential envoy to afghanistan who was appointed by trump and continued in that position by biden, he told them. he told them at all those meetings, the u.s. is gone,
6:27 am
we're done, and we're not coming back. and they also told them the plan. they laid out under obama the timeline for withdrawal, they said we're outta here. and what they effectively did at that point was box the afghan government in. and people who know afghanistan, they know that the afghans themselves, they have a history of this. they're survivors. they have been invaded by everybody from genghis khan to alexander the great to the soviets and so on. so when you come in with money and power, which is what the taliban have done, they've come in with the money of china and the backing of the pakistanis and the chinese and all the other a allies that we don't know about yet, they've come in with a plan, they made deals ahead of time, and they knew exactly what they were doing. they knew the u.s. wouldn't defend theiral lisles and -- allies, and this is the betrayal and the end of the american idea for many. it says to people don't stand with the u.s. because they won't stand with you. will: sounds like 72 hours a

graham's van listic association -- evangelistic association. franklin, it's always an honor to have you on. full disclosure, i donate to your organization because i know it does good work, and i know that people can feel safe giving to this organization. could you let our viewers know what you're doing, what your plans are in haiti and how soon you think you can get your folks out there to do the good work you do. >> well, thank you very much. we are sending our cargo plane today at 1:00 eastern time from greensboro, north carolina, to port-au-prince. and there it will be trucked -- we've got about 31 tons, and we can do a flight every day if we need to. but we're taking on this flight
6:44 am
emergency shelter. this would be fiber-reinforced urethane plastic which will last for years. we still have some of this plastic used today that was used in 2010 after -- it's still being used. so we'll take this plastic. people need shelter. when their home has collapsed, they've got to have shelter from the rain -- [audio difficulty] they've got to have shelter from the sun. and so shelter is extremely important. but more important is water. desalinization carts, we can do about 7,000 people a day with fresh water there if these. from these. all you cois put a hose -- do is put a hose in the ocean, and you can start making fresh water in minutes. so that's in play. we also have a mobile medical clinic that we're taking and
6:45 am
with a team of medical specialists that are on this flight. we'll be down there for some time. i know the body count is, like, 300 as of last night. i believe it's going to be much higher today and tomorrow as more numbers come in from some of these remote areas. rachel: yeah. >> this is an area of haiti that is less populated than what we saw in port-au-prince. a. rachel: yeah. >> in 2010. rachel: yeah, no -- >> it's going to take a while. rachel: yeah, it is. we saw remarkable, heartbreaking footage of pulling children out of this rubble, and i know that the rescue efforts are going to be hampered in some way by this storm that's coming through, the tropical storm, as well as there have been some gangs walking around to help. finish can you tell us how long you think it will, your team will be on the ground for? are you anticipating a very long stay there based on what you're seeing now and your experience from the last time that you were
6:46 am
there to help? >> well, we've been in haiti since 2010, so we'll be on the ground for a long time the,, i think. responding to this particular need if, we'll be there as long as the need is there. and so we don't just come in for a few days and then leave. we always go in with the outlook of staying until the need is complete. and i think the need will be there for some time, so i'm sure we'll be focused on this for the next several months. rachel: yeah. well, there's no country that needs it more. it's already a poor country, and what we love love about your organization is that you're also bringing prayers and an evangelistic message with all the necessary help. thank you, franklin graham, for all you and samaritan's purse do around the world, and might i mention, here as well. you've been helping with covid. so thanks a lot. >> well, thank you very much is. god bless. rachel: god bless you.
6:47 am
all right. chief meteorologist rick reichmuth with tropical storm grace that could hit haiti. rick: rick yeah, certainly going to have some impact. a lot of rain with it. now, the worst of the wind probably won't be right there and that's because it's going to have some interaction with the dominican republic, they're going to see this. it's really exactly what happened with fred just about five days ago across that area. here is grace right now, about a 40 mile-an-hour storm, and it's probably going to have a lot of interaction with hispaniola and eventually towards cuba, it's going the make this storm a little weaker. obviously, haiti getting the rain, but i just want to point out here, likely to get into the central part of the gulf where the water is very warm, some sort of a landfall eventually from grace. in the short term, by the way, we're going to have tropical storm fred back to a tropical storm now and sometime tomorrow night making landfall across the
6:48 am
panhandle of florida, maybe towards mobile, alabama, bringing a lot of rain with this. all right, guys? lauren: thanks, rick. inflation is wiping out wage gains. rachel: that's right. fox news poll reveals more than 80% of americans are now concerned about inflation. so will democrats' spending, the democrats' spending spree mean more rising costs? will: let's ask "sunday morning futures" anchor maria bartiromo. good morning, maria. we just show ised a poll that the number, i believe it was the number one -- rachel: yeah. will: -- concern among americans is inflation. obviously, it's hitting their pocketbook, as you say. so what can they expect going forward? maria: well, sure. team, thanks very much. what a day we are all witnessing. destruction across the world and in the it is hitting americans' pocketbooks. look, the definition of inflation is this: too many dollars chasing too few goods. too many dollars chasing too few
6:49 am
goods. that's exactly what's happening right now because you've got trillions and trillions of dollars coming from this white house, and then you've got 150, 120 billion coming from the federal reserve every month in its bond-buying program. that's why most people want the fed to stop and let the economy grow and go back to normal rather than all of this stimulus being thrown at the economy. we are looking at the result, wages were up 4% year-over-year in the last month, but inflation, consumer prices were up 5.4%. so your dollars are buying you fewer things, unfortunately, it is costing us a lot more for a lot less. and that is the reality of all of this spending. it is outrageous that the republicans have agreed to spend an additional $1.2 trillion on infrastructure and open the door to another $5 trillion in spending as the administration are refuses to acknowledge the crisis at the border and refuses to put one dime additional
6:50 am
toward defense spending. our adversaries are growing across the world. china and now we've got a massive situation underway in afghanistan, and there is no new money in the budget for the defense. incredible. we're going to be talking about all of this coming up. we are also going to compare the vaccines, because i know pfizer is in the biden club and all. remember, they waited a week after the election before announcing a vaccine was ready. but is the number of breakthrough cases coming largely from the pfizer vaccine versus moderna vaccine? i've to got a special interview with the president of moderna because we have information on the difference between pfizer and no kerr that. lawrence: coming up, a special performance ahead of their induction into the grand ole opry.
