first, on hurricane ida rapidly strengthening in a dangerous category 4 storm, sustained 150 mile-an-hour winds. this monster storm is forecast to make landfall in louisiana in a few hours 16 years to the day after hurricane katrina came ashore. fox weather meteorologist rick reichmuth is live with the forecast. rick, good morning. rick: good morning, maria. yeah, this storm really strengthening a hot during the overnight hours. -- a lot. if it gets to 157 miles an hour, that's a category 5 storm, so you get the idea. center of the storm looking better on satellite representation than it has, when i say better, i mean as a storm, stronger than it has at anytime in its life cycle, and that's happening right as it's getting close to landfall. pressure has been plummeting, 930 millibars, that means we just have more energy, more explosive energy in this storm the lower that pressure goes, and that's happening right as it's getting close to landfall. as you said, it'll probably
7:05 am
happen in the next 2-3 hours somewhere just to the west of grand isle, maybe around the area where 16-18% of all of the oil that is produced out of the gulf all dose through that area -- goes through that area, oil we consume in the united states, i should say. you have a storm coming onshore so strong, we're going to see hurricane force winds well far inland, winds later this afternoon in places like bat. en rouge, certainly in new orleans as well. storm surge is going to be a massive problem, tornadoes throughout the afternoon, and this storm is going to not move very quickly, some spots 15-20 inches of rain, maybe even in the new orleans area that has a very hard time pumping that kind of water out of the city, also assuming that those levees that have been restructured over the last number of years will also hold. lots of questions with this storm about how we're going to handle it there in southwestern -- southeastern louisiana. maria? maria: rick, thanks very much.
7:06 am
fox news is going to be covering this all day. rick reich muth, thank you very much. -- rick reichmuth. thank you very much. we have a number of breaking news stories to report. this week it was the face of weakness seen across the world, joe biden cowering at the podium, cowering to the taliban as he defended his plan to keep the terrorist deadline to cut and run out of afghanistan. >> you know as well as i do that the former president made a deal with the taliban that he would get all american forces out of afghanistan by may 1. no, no, no, wait a minute. i'm asking you a question. is that accurate? i think they have an issue that people are likely to get hurt, some as we've seen have gotten killed and that it is messy. maria: abandoning the bagram air
7:07 am
base before all americans were out of the country also meant opening up two prisons that were full of thousands and and thousands of hard core terrorists. those same terrorists, one of my first guests this morning and many of their colleagues, put their lives on the line to put behind bars. joining me right now are afghanistan veterans turned lawmakers florida congressmen michael walsh and brian mast. gentlemen, i want to thank you so much for your service the our country, for all you have done and continue to do. my condolences for our fallen heroes. >> thank you, yeah, thank you, maria. >> thank you, maria. maria: congressman walsh, let me get your reaction to the apparent reportedly military strike that the u.s. has taken again this morning after the strike which hit the planners of this debacle. >> well, i'm glad the strike happened. we received briefings just a few days ago that suicide vests and car bombs were descending on
7:08 am
kabul airport which many of us have said from day one is not defendable, we should have been at bagram. however, it's also worth noting that biden is removing all of these assets, the drones, our capability to run sourcessen on the ground and have eyes and ears on the ground, it's all soon to be gone in just 48 hours. so that will leave us going forward with no troops on the ground, no embassy and having to send drones from halfway around the world. we're going to be blind. and if we can't -- we couldn't even trust the taliban to protect an airport and screen terror terrorists, how the heck is this administration looking to them to protect our homeland and to keep al-qaeda and isis from plotting and planning to hit america again? the end of the day, maria with, we're going to have to go back. it's going to be far worse than september 10, 2001, because we gave away all our bases. our allies are being hunted down, and now we have a terrorist army armed to the
7:09 am
teeth with american equipment. maria: this is such an incredibly bad outcome and mistake. congressman walz, you continue to fight for americans' rights in your role right now, but we know that you also led the look for bowe bergdahl back when you were in afghanistan. i want to get back to that. and, congressman mast, i want to talk about this decision to close bagram air base because i know that this was a decision of the obama administration, and many people say that his former national security team have their fingerprints all over that, in particular susan rice as well as antony blinken and others. but let's talk about what you've done and the incredible service that you've given to our country. you lost both your legs, you lost a finger. it was your job when you were in afghanistan throughout 2010 to find the bad guys, roll them up and put them in prison.
7:10 am
your personal reaction, because with it has to be personal for both of you, to see these prisoners now let out. >> maria, it goes so far beyond personal. you said i lost two legs and a finger, that's a scratch. that's the truth. that's a scratch compared to what michael new nye, our frien, suffered. i could give you my list on my arm right here, right? three of my friends right there, they gave their lives rolling up these people that were left out. another one of my friends right there gave his life rolling up these people that president biden let out. more friends right there gave their lives rolling up these people that president biden left out. it's so far beyond the injuries. and you see the sacrifices that are now taking place because of those that were let out that are saying this is the way we need to go out there and secretly
7:11 am
abuse against the -- seek retribution against americans. this has to be the red line, that we will retreat no further. we will not allow this administration to retreat any further. we are americans. those people that gave their lives, our friends, those that gave their lives this week, one of them ever believed that we would see peace by negotiating with a white flag of surrender. that is not who we are as americans. that is my reaction. i literally cannot stand it when i think about every one of these friends and so many more. maria: we are looking at pictures of our heroes, our fallen heroes last week in afghanistan. i want to show those pictures again and continue to tribute and cherish the lives of our heroes who fell last week. congressman, these men and women were between 20 years old and 31 years old. one of them, i know, went right into the marines right after
7:12 am
high school. they were ten marines, two army sergeants and one navy medic. your thoughts on who we lost last week. >> well, maria, i can tell you for a fact that so many congressional offices and private groups have had to step in to save americans and to save our at-risk allies. we've had to step into the void because the white house isn't leading. and we were in direct contact with some of those marines who were pulling grueling security during the day and then in their few off hours were in contact with us and actually going out and helping pull afghans in, into the wire and pull americans into the wire. that's the kind of sacrifice that they were making. but we still have americans out there. i was just in touch a few hours ago with americans outside the gate in kabul international, and they can't get ahold of anyone in there.
7:13 am
biden has shut it dispowrng americans are going to be left behind, and the taliban are going to have a hostage bonanza at anytime of their choosing. it's disgraceful and shameful. maria: look, i know that it was a prior -- [inaudible conversations] if yeah, go ahead, brian. >> that inventory that our u.s. service members are now having to fight against, we used those weapons, we carried those weapons across the battlefield. we know what they can mean in terms of harm, not just the improvised explosive devices and the vehicle-borne ieds, but the ordnance, the mortars, the body armor, the night vision that they now have that limit us from conducting nighttime operations that could help give us a little bit of an edge over those enemies, the surface-to-air assets they now have that they can put down our assets that are in the sky. michael and i know as well as anybody, that inventory is the most advanced military weaponry that was given to them by
7:14 am
president biden. it makes this already inheshtly danger -- inherently dangerous situation the gravest possible situation that our men could face, our men and women could face. maria: yeah. well, i want to know about the taliban, isis, al-qaeda. obviously, these are ongoing and increasing threats. what can you tell us about both of -- about those groups? should we be trusting the taliban? >> march. >> -- >> not at all. >> their own intelligence, his own intelligence community just briefed us a few days ago that that taliban and al-qaeda married at the hip, al-qaeda fully intends to come roaring back and to attack the homeland again. but you're going to see this administration that start to try to draw false distinctions and that the taliban are good terrorists that we can work with against the others. and anybody who has fought against these guys knows that's a bunch of garbage. they're all working together, and they all aim to kill americans. maria: and you both fought
7:15 am
against these guys. go ahead, brian, before we take a short break. >> the most unholy word for -- holy word for any american has to be the word freedom. that is the opposite of what any of those terrorist groups stands for, al-qaeda, taliban, isis, isis-k, as michael said, they're all joined under the hip, just running under a slightly different flag. we need to stand up for what is our battle cry, that is freedom. we need to stand up for it with our last breath or or not if at all. maria: well, then why would we take down such a strategically-placed air base? i want to take a break and then come back to who's accountable. it's hard to talk about this in the smoke of war, the fog of war, but we must connect the dots to china, iran, pakistan and the obama administration. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ because we only serve those who honorably served. all ranks, all branches, and their families.

7:19 am
we are having a discussion this morning with afghan veterans and congressmen mike waltz and brian mast. and, brian mast, i want to ask you about what was behind the decision, in your view, to close down bagram air base, because i know that this was a priority of the obama administration, and many of his national security people are working for president biden. and that includes susan rice and antony blinken and jake sullivan. your thoughts on why closing such an important strategically-placed air base was a good idea. that was our eyes and ears to china, to pakistan, and i know that we invested $1 trillion in it. >> it's bagram, it's the embassy, it's every other place because their mantra was withdrawal at any price because of political optics. reach that 9/11 as your strategic objection, that 9/11 ceremony where they can have a celebration and make a to-do about it to say they
7:20 am
accomplished something political to get out, not a strategic objective of making america safer, getting our citizens out alive, making our service members in a safer world that they go out there and conduct their operations, making our homeland safer. no strategic objectives met. their only strategy was to say how can we make things politically better optically. that was their objective, and obviously, when they tried to do that, they made every aspect of geopolitics and if safety across the globe in the most dire possible situation. that's what they actually accomplished. maria: michael -- >> yeah, maria -- maria: your thoughts here. go ahead. >> yeah, just to add to that, bagram air base was the only base in the world that we had sandwiched between china, russia iran and that we could also strike these terrorist groups, the only one. not a single country around afghanistan has agreed to host an additional base. it's also just a few hundred miles from the chinese province,
7:21 am
shenyang province where the uyghurs are. on top of that, there are over a trillion dollars of rare earth and critical min ifals in afghanistan that we could have had access to that, and on top of that, india is feeling even more isolated because the taliban are aligned with pakistan and china. but the biggest piece is the propaganda win here. the chinese are already telling taiwan america won't stand with you, this is evidence. the russians are telling the ukrainians the same thing, and at the end of the day, democracy and america's values lose. jihad wins, authoritarian regimes win, and america will not stand with you. maria: this is such an enormous mistake, it cannot be underestimated. that's why i wanted to show that map in terms of the weergs and the nuclear -- uyghurs and the nuclear buildup. ing look at this graphic, who is
7:22 am
going to take the hit? who is going to be accountable for this mistake? all of these people who are working with joe biden directing his actions are, were in the obama administration. do you think we'll see anyone accountable for this massive mistake to close bagram air base? >> well, maria, under pelosi -- go ahead. >> -- endangering 10,000 plus americans. reckless endangerment of 10,000 plus americans. that needs to be the charge. maria: gentlemen, thank you so much. brian mast, mike waltz, it's an honor the speak with you both this morning. coming up, the biden administration cannot guarantee americans' safe passage home, but it's sportedly shown out 1 -- reportedly flown out 100 afghans on the watch list. we'll get into it with stephen miller.

♪♪ >> the consequences of the rapid exit are both predictable and unacceptable. 9/11 if, the worst terrorist attack in our history, was planned and directed from afghanistan because that country was ruled by a government that gave comfort and shelter to terrorists. a hasty withdrawal would create a vacuum that terrorists, including isis and al-qaeda, would instantly fill just as happened before september 11th. maria: wow. that was president trump in august of 2017. warning against a hasty withdrawal from afghanistan. it is exactly what has happened
7:27 am
when biden abandoned bagram air force base on july 5th leaving behind our -- prisons filled with terrorists who are likely on the attack. stephen miller is the founder of america first legal, a nonprofit that fights back against the biden administration and the radical agenda. stephen, good morning to you. hearing president trump there was really incredible given what has taken place. you know that president biden is partly putting the blame on president trump for the deal that that he did with the taliban. your reaction. >> well, we know that president biden is an inveterate liar, and it is preposterous to say that president trump -- who kept our troops from harm without any taliban attacks against them
7:28 am
from the moment that he began the peace negotiations in early 2020 -- to blame him for the biden debacle is outrageous and an offense to human reason. president trump had a peace plan and a peace process in place that was conditions-based, and the taliban knew that if they crossed any red line, if our people were hurt on their watch, if they moved on our air base, if they moved on our embassy, if they moved on any american asset, they would pay with their lives, and they knew this. and when biden came in, he took the trump peace plan -- like nancy pelosi took trump's state of the union -- and he ripped it to shreds. and he and the same team of people that brought up the disasters in libya and syria and egypt, they brought us the disaster in afghanistan, and they alone are responsible for the greatest strategic humiliation in our history. maria: i am very concerned about the closing of the bagram air base for a number of reasons,
7:29 am
not just because of our ability to have eyes and ears on the ground in afghanistan, but our ability to be situated right there between china, iran, pakistan, russia. we don't have that. where would we launch strikes from? how do we insure that america is kept safe without any presence whatsoever in this region? stephen, your -- i mean, one of the conditions of the peace plan was that the taliban had to negotiate with the afghan government. >> correct. maria: there were actual conditions -- >> yes. maria: -- of that peace plan. >> it was conditions-based, step by step, it was garage because president trump -- gradual because president trump understood everything he said in that 2017 speech. and that process in '17, '18, '19 and 20 laid the groundwork for this process to make clear to the taliban that you could either be part of negotiated
7:30 am
political settlement, or this process is done, this process is over. and biden just, again, he ripped that whole entire process to shreds. maria: i want to turn to the refugee situation, stephen, because now you've got people like alexandria ocasio-cortez saying take them all in, we have to resettle the afghans. we've got to get them, issue them 200,000 visas and met them live in america. your thoughts -- and let them live in america. your thoughts on this debacle on top of the open border we are talking about at the southern border which covid and terrorists and, you know, human trafficking and illicit drugs are flowing through. >> yeah. well, look, this is a double biden disaster. first, as you mentioned and we discussed, he got rid of the trump conditions-based plan, and afghanistan's a terror wonderland once again with terrorists wandering around doing whatever they want to do. but the second part of the disaster is how he's opening our
7:31 am
border to afghanistan. are have we forgotten so quickly that the. 9/11 terrorists were granted visas by our state department? have we forgotten so quickly that all that blood was shed because we weren't able to secure our own immigration system? now we're going to repeat these mistakes again? the united states has no obligation, none at all, to say every person in the world who's living urn islamic three of course rah rah city has a right to come to our country. how many people does that apply to? how is that safe us? if how is that good for the muslim world? if there are people who want to leave the taliban because they don't want to live under sharia law, then we can work with them to finding a home somewhere else in the middle east. but this open-ended obligation to take up every one of the 40 million people who would prefer to live here than under sharia law is clinically insane, and we will rue the day we made that decision, so i hope members of congress will speak up before
7:32 am
it's too late. maria: stephen, thank you so much for weighing in on all of this. we are going to get right to congress right now, we want accountability, and we appreciate your time right now. ladies and gentlemen, we are once again in wartime. the u.s. has struck once again the region outside of the airport. we have breaking news this morning. we are going to speak with house minority leader kevin mccarthy who is in washington right now. he wants briefings, he wants to know what went wrong. nancy pelosi has has not responded. she is refusing to call congress back into session to help evacuate americans from from afghanistan before it's too late. the taliban knows who these people are because the biden administration gave them a list of names. what it will take to save them after this with kevin mccarthy.

the congressman joins me this morning from where he is in washington d.c. congressman, it's good to see you. thanks very much for coming back this morning because of this breaking news. we spoke over the weekend, and i know that you've been working the phones trying to get americans out of afghanistan. if i'm going to get to nancy pelosi in a minute. tell us about your efforts to get people out. >> maria, there are hundreds and could be thousands of americans that are going to get left behind in afghanistan. as michael waltz just saw you and brian mast, many of the members have been working, such as myself, trying to get americans that we know that are our constituents that are just outside the wall of the airport, to get them in, to get them on planes, to get them home, to get them to safety. the state department has made a decision that the 31st is the deadline. they're allowing taliban to be dictate our foreign policy. what has happened here, maria, anytime you allow a partisan political decision designed for
7:38 am
a photo op, it will lead to a fatal national security problem on the battlefield. and that is what transpired here based upon what joe biden as president has done. you bring a very good point about bagram. even at the end of the day they wanted to close that base, why would they close it before all the americans were out? you housed more than 5,000 terrorists in a prison there. they have now been released. you left in the middle of the night without telling your allies. you left weaponry. now the prisoners are out, isis-k. we're seeing the damage, what they're able to do in such a short time frame. we're watching the americans being left behind but administration knowingly making that that decision. there's no excuse why this deadline has not been extended. the speaker has got to call us back in. maria: so you have demanded that nancy pelosi call congress back in so that you can understand what went wrong. have you heard back from the speaker? >> we have heard back from the
7:39 am
speaker. only from her deputy chief who tried to criticize us for asking that a co-equal branch of government could have a say. when we were called back, other nations called back. the u.k. got called back to work on getting is citizens home. when we were called back, it was only to pass about $5 trillion of spending. we had a short time to talk, and they cut the meeting off when we had our update. we should spend the time knowing how many americans are still there, not setting an artificial deadline until the mission is done that every american is out safely, then you can shut it down. but to allow the taliban to dictate our foreign policy, to allow the state department to run this instead of the military, these are mistakes, but these are answers that we're going of to hold people accountable for later because people have lost their lives. those 13 gold star families, our hearts and prayers goes out to them. maria: yes, they -- we do. we have been cherishing them and
7:40 am
honoring them all morning, you're absolutely right. i know that you were against closing bagram a while back, and i think it's really important to show the proximity of this air base relative to china, relative to the uyghurs where they're locked up in the shenyang region and relative to where china is building up its nuclear facilities. i wonder if also xi jinping was among those pressuring joe biden to close down this air base. i mean, whose decision was it, and what kind of consequences is this going to mean for america over the long term? >> those are the questions we're going to have to get answered as we go forward. i've had and directed our republican leaders in the three different committees to send a letter to the white house to secure those documents. we want the know the answers. because, one, why would you close it down; two, why would you close it ahead before all the americans are out, why would you, in that place, harm not just our americans still sitting
7:41 am
there with the terrors, but future america and everywhere else? and strategically when you're looking towards the future, the growth of china, the movement of russia, pakistan and others, why wouldn't we want to be able to have a situational aawareness that we could be able to move planes out and others if that strategic point? from that strategic point? maria: i want to ask you about where the investigations are in washington given this moment in time that we are in. you've sent the letter to the white house saying make sure to save all documentation, do not destroy any documents because you will be investigating this. meanwhile, nancy pelosi is wanting to investigate you and and anybody who was there on january 6th. congressman, have you gotten any news in terms of what they want to see from you? if because it appears that while we should be investigating what went wrong in afghanistan, they are, in fact, investigating
7:42 am
trump supporters. >> yeah, no, i've received nothing so far, only the talk that they want to do this. but say for one moment under nancy pelosi and the democrats, they have taken the intel committee that are supposed to be the eyes and ears of looking around the world to keep america safe and created adam schiff with a political committee, they spent their time impeaching the president. we are a co-equal branch of government. why didn't we know of what was happening on the ground? why didn't adam schiff have those hearings? devin nuñes had wash warned us and told me many times before, and now at this time when they have an open board, when they have caught people on the terror watch already this year, that they have the homeland security chairman investigating members of congress and the chairman of the intel committee? that's their focus instead of focusing on protecting all of america and the homeland.
7:43 am
that's what they should be working on. maria: okay. before you go, real quick, will you lead drawing up articles of impeachment, will you look at the 25th amendment? senator rick scott tweeted out it is time to look at the 25th amendment now that we see all of these missteps from joe biden. what are your plans in terms of leadership as we are in this incredible moment in time? if rick scott says president biden's cabinet must put politics a aside and act in the best interest of the american people. biden's tragic and inexplicable failures in afghanistan defy logic. it's time to consider the 25th amendment. and you say? >> i say my moment at this moment is getting every american out. when we get beyond that point, we're going to collect all the data, and we have an institutional responsibility to hold people accountable. and we will take it wherever the facts bring that forward. if that's the case, we will move
7:44 am
forward. maria: can you say anything about your classified briefing on afghanistan to share with us? >> those are classified briefings. one thing i will tell you is we should have the members of congress back for another classified briefing before they bring our men and women out of there. they have americans knowing -- the state department talked about 11,000 americans there. they said they moved it 5,400. that means thousands of americans are still there. we know from the state department that there are thousands of isis-k people, terrorists that have now left the prison in bagram. we are less safe today than we were in the places if you look before 9/11, because now they have our weaponry. taliban now has more blacking hawk helicopters than australia. they have our drones and others. we need to focus on protecting america, and that's something that this administration is not doing, but putting more americans that could be held hostage stuck in afghanistan. maria: congressman, we are going to be following your every move. thanks very much for your

we've seen probably in at least a half century. i think people should look carefully at this, because it's pretty good evidence if newsom is in a straight, honest count, he has a good chance of losing. maria: that was the former speaker of the house, newt gingrich, with me last sunday right here on this program, warning us that gavin newsom's recall election on september 14th could be rigged. joining me right now is the gop front-runner in that race, california gubernatorial candidate larry elder. larry, good morning to you. thanks very much for being here. early voting is underway. will this race be fair? >> well, i'm worried about that, and i think the speaker's right. right now the recall side and the anti-recall side, we are about 50-50. excuse me. it takes 50% plus one vote to get this guy out. and about a third of all those who signed the petition to get him out were independents and democrats who just voted for him two years earlier.

and vaccine mandates for state workers, those are going to be repealed. i also am pushing choice in education. before the pandemic 75% of black boys could not read at state level proficiency, and almost half of all third graders could not, and they were denied a whole year of in-person education. so one of my big agendas is to full bill the promise that -- fulfill the promise that kids get a quality education. while gavin newsom's kids were enjoying in-person schooling. i'm asking people to to go to elect, we have a voter integrity project called elect if you have anything suspicious, go to elect and report it, and we'll be monitoring all of that. maria: larry, stay with us. quick break and then more from larry elder this morning in california. ♪ ♪ rd 1.1 trillion transistors into this chip whoo! yeah!
