brian: i did have a surprise tyson corner small guy from arkansas. senator tom cotton showed up. ainsley: did he really? brian: gave remarks. ainsley: that's nice. brian: he said do you know where my younger one is? i said no. we had our hands full. he came down and did some shopping. he blended in. made remarks and talked about bob dole, his passing. and then said i have got to go shopping. ainsley: how many children? he has three? brian: he has two. brian he left with two. ainsley: how was your weekend? steve: it was great. i did the tunnel 2 towers event on friday my daughter marry came in. we put up christmas deck core rations and a lot of cook. brian: honored suzanne scott. steve: raised millions of
3:04 am
dollars. ainsley: suzanne is our ceo and so involved with that organization. because of all of you, all of your support has raised a lot of money for this organization. steve: we have a very special partnership that has made it possible we are very proud of it. later on today, it's official, something from the trump administration, the biden administration didn't want to do it. they wanted to get rid of it but the remain in mexico policy is being restarted. remember, it was a couple of months ago that a federal court said hey, joe biden administration. we know you tried to pulled plug on it as soon as you could. but you didn't do it the right way. the u.s. supreme court upheld that and now today it's back in business. ainsley: that means that migrants that are seeking asylum are going to have to remain in mexico while they await their immigration court date in the united states. brian: mexico asked for one concession that we know of. they said you just got to get them through in six months. what i think is important and going to talk to former secretary, homeland security wolf about this shortly. got to send a message.
3:05 am
if you come to the border, you are not going to get. in is that message being firmly sent by the administration? are they reluctant to do this? remember with president biden when he was candidate biden and even when he was president talked about the inhumanity of the remain in mexico policy which mexico was a partner in. listen. >> i make no apologies for ending programs that did not exist before trump became president that have an incredibly negative impact on the law, international law, as well as on human dignity. >> it has imposed unjustifiable human costs pulled resources and personnel away from other priority efforts and failed to address the root causes of irregular migration. deeply flawed. that's why we stopped enrolling individuals in day one and subsequently issued a memorandum in june terminating the program. steve: so they are going to restart the remain in mexico program also known as the
3:06 am
migrant protection protocols later today. steve: they talked to mexico about it and brian to your point mexico. they had a bunch of concerns. mexico said you have got to make sure that you see everybody within six months. also, apparently the united states is going to have to make sure that they have safe shelter in mexico, that they have transportation to and from the ports, and that they can get work permits to work in mexico. so, the united states is doing a lot of heavy lifting to get mexico on board. ainsley: as well as healthcare counsel in mexico as well. brian: big difference president trump said we are hitting you with tariffs unless you do what i say and they actually built a very commendable personal relationship these two former leader and the current leader. here they seem to be holding up the -- this current administration because fundamentally they don't want to do it but the course are making them do it. ainsley: this is governor greg abbott talking about reinstating remain in mexico.
3:07 am
>> sod remain in mexico that was the result of a lawsuit brought by texas against the biden administration where a federal judge ruled in our favor compelling the biden administration to reinstate the remain in mexico policy. , we are apprehensive the extent the biden administration will reimpose it as usual. we will believe it when we see it with regard to these crimes that you are talking about taking place, listen, this is part of cartel activity. the cartels are advertising on tiktok to get drivers do assist and then moving illegal immigrants around the state of texas. it's an issue that the texas department of public safety is working to crack down upon but it shows the extent to which texas law enforcement officers have to step up and deal with the challenges that are created by the biden administration importing illegal activity into our country and into our state. steve: what he was talking about there, his critics say that if you have them in mexico, it puts the migrants at risk of violence or something else in mexico while they are waiting.
3:08 am
meanwhile the biden administration is going to continue to try to pull the plug on the program but this time they are going to do it the right way. they are going to conduct a full review to figure out the impact if they get rid of it although we kind of saw a little of that over the last number of months, but, nonetheless, just trying to do it by the book so in this time they can pull the plug officially. ainsley: stepping up operations in rio grande area. they have stopped more than 16,000 pounds of drugs, fentanyl, heroin, cocaine from being smuggled into the u.s. they have seized more than $7 million and apprehended more than 160,000 migrants since the month of march. their tactical marine unit will be in full force they say. >> how angry would you be if you are a texas citizen. this is the federal government's job to do it. and you have to put your own local assets out there to do something that this administration is refusing to do. and i have a note to mexico, i have an idea. if you don't like the remain in
3:09 am
mexico policy bulk you up your southern border. stop them from getting to our southern border and send the right message and do reform to allow more people to come here legally through work visas because there is a whole bunch of americans who don't want to fill jobs that we have open and a lot of hardworking central and south americans that want to come here just for the opportunity to have a job. we might have a match here if we could do it the right way. steve: well, let's see what happens. nonetheless, we are going to talk to as brian mentioned a moment ago chad wolf former actingdhs secretary. ainsley: chris cuomo out as cnn. brian: despite the video aoc these smash and grabs are not happening. the congresswoman's comments are being slammed as tone deaf and we put that in bold in the

3:42 am
area of low pressure across the rockies. that is going to merge up with the southern system and bring us our coastal lows. so we will have that cold air in place. who will get the snow? it's the tale of two computer models, some say snow for the northeast including new york city and other big cities and other computer model says mainly a rain event. we have to refine that forecast and bring you the very latest. the thing can i tell you 60 in new york. 67 in atlanta. 58 in dallas. >> we have cold air behind the system. we had blizzard conditions over parts of the great lakes and the upper midwest and we had warm temperatures last week for the central u.s. that is coming to an end this week as that developing storm system moves in. as the jet stream develops. and then, okay so, here's one of the computer models we are watching. one computer model bringing us the potential for some snow along the east coast and then the blockbuster computer model brings some measurable snow for some of these areas. so something we will have to watch over the next couple of
3:43 am

4:03 am
data collection. reactionary mode in this country when it comes to dealing with this coronavirus or the latest variant good news is very, very mild symptoms very hard to see if anyone has had it or not unless they're tested. >> omni krohn one third of the states. required to take a test one day before you depart your country and you come into the united states regardless of your vaccination status you have to wear a mask in airports and on planes and other modes of public transportation like buses and trains. they are asking about 24 hours before you get on the plane. saying day before. board a flight 1:00 p.m. on friday board with a negative test any time the day before it does apply to air passengers two years or older flying into the u.s. there is not a requirement just requirement for air travelers not traveling on land.
4:04 am
steve: these are international restrictions regarding flying in the united states. what's interesting though, is if you have had covid in the past, apparently you will be able to document that with a note to say, look, i had covid within the last 90 days and so then you would be given an exemption. you would be able to fly as well. it's interesting, given the fact that now we are 10 days into the omicron variant and learning more about it is not as severe they say. and dr. fauci yesterday was talking about yeah, you know, the travel restrictions out of south africa we're probably going to revisit that he said he felt bad about doing it and now it has come to light that apparently it was circulating around in many other countries. brian: first. steve: before south africa which ultimately got the blame if you will put it that way because that's the area of the globe that we restricted now they are going we probably are going to
4:05 am
revisit that we could be stopping that, too. brian: how ridiculous is that relying on news sources to find out. steve: they didn't know. >> they had ogo years to get in touch with all these countries to get this communication going and yet they are reacting on a friday, they ban things on a saturday. countries are devastated. countries band. punished for coming out and being transparent by saying we got handful of cases here, mild symptoms no, deaths. i want to tell you about it next thing you know they get banned. unlike china who still has not told us where the virus came from. so how are they rewarded? >> hospitalizations have not gone up in south africa. they say hospitalizations are not increasingly -- they are not increasing rapidly in south africa because of this. and fauci says it's too early to make any definite statements about it thus far it does not look like a great degree of severity to it we are really going to be careful before we make any determination.
4:06 am
steve: remember, when the news came out and going into, i believe, the holiday weekend, the stock market sold off because it was like are we going back and then the administration. brian: a thousand points. steve: the administration so far behind they wanted to look like they were in front of this. they did the travel restrictions and now it looks like maybe, you know what? in the name of caution, they did it but now they are going, you know what? we could back off probably. brian: why do we have to go to israel for everything. here's an example. tell us why and who is getting break through viruses? why are you getting breakthroughs? at what point in what vaccine is doing that? every time we need an answer we need v. to go to another country. big picture is, people are asking themselves when is this thing actually over? when do we live with it and stop running from it? here's a listen. >> if we set our sights on going to zero covid, we'll never satisfy that. i don't believe we will. covid will be endemic meaning there will be strains that will circuit.
4:07 am
they will change. but we want to make that a minimal risk disease by vaccines. by pre-existing immunity. by the oral drugs. we need to go on with our economy. we can't ruin our children. we can't throw people into depression and cause them to be more addicted and die of overdoses. we have to get on with our lives and live with this all w. all the tools we have right now. >> the end of the miami is a political decision. not an enlogical decision. that's a basic fact. stop the panic, stop counting cases. we have no technology to stop the cases from coming. we have technology to protect you if you are -- if you actually do get sick. brian: moderna omicron vaccine for runny nose and low fever a fourth shot on top of a booster and another variant we are going to be -- getting shot every three weeks. zika manual halderly a right wing zolt rahm emanuel's brother who is perpetually angry to the
4:08 am
extent we are constantly relying on britain and south africa the definition of flying blind. the cdc has been under fire for months lackluster tracking break through infections and u.s. reliant on other countries for realtime data. that's what anthony fauci should be asked. when are you going to give us some data that we can use instead of telling us how many people can come to our thanksgiving? steve: we had delta come into the country last year and now omicron. as it turns out the bike vaccine manufactures have relied on the same vaccine from the very beginning. they were talking over the weekend what if you tailor it to this particular mutation and drug companies are reluctant to do that. they don't want to do it because then the next one comes along. so far it looks like the current vaccines work. interesting bit of information that came out. that is, you know, we told that you omicron has 50 mutations. one of the mutations apparently it looks like came from the common cold. the genetic sequence does not
4:09 am
appear in any earlier versions of the coronavirus. so, as it is circulating around the world, it's changing and now part of it has part of the common cold. ainsley: just affecting so many different businesses. we have interviewed so many small business owners. this is mary josephine general rosa she owns a restaurant it's hard to find anybody to work in the service industry. i'm working 70, to 80 hours a week to maintain my business. the mayor has been destructive he has called the key to unlock new york city it's destructive putting another thing over them they need to be vaccinated to come in and get a job. what kind of world and city do we live in? it goes way beyond new york city. we see this happening throughout the world. i would love to implore the mayor to look at what he is
4:10 am
doing. he is doing more harm than good. brian: i have an idea. study texas and florida. they are living lives that are free and giving people the opportunity to make their own mature decisions whether it's stay inside or go outside. they are letting people be free. unlike new york. look at this: here are a list of the freest and most oppressive states. ainsley: the least free. brian: here are the least free states. new york shocker 1. hawaii 2. california 3. new jersey 4. oregon 5. i think three of those are leading the country in case, too. now for the most free states? steve: you have got new hampshire, florida, nevada, tennessee and south dakota. what we're talking about. this is cato institute's freedom in the 50 u.s. states surveyed. they have been doing this for years. it is based on overall personal freedoms. like how much your taxes are. imminent domain laws.
4:11 am
licensing, drug policy. things like that. new york state has been the worst state the least free state in the union since they started this particular survey. florida is at the top. one of the things they cite is no individual income tax and they have got a hot climate for business and actually the weather itself is hot as well. and so that's one of the reasons why as you look at the free states right there. you have got florida, tennessee, new hampshire is number one, again. then you have got nevada and south dakota. ainsley: no state tax in new hampshire, no state tax in tennessee and florida. a lot of people are moving out of this city, which is heart breaking because so many people love new york city. it's so expensive here. steve: hard to love now. brian: what about those students that got stabbed in columbia. ainsley: crime is up. steve: crime is terrifying. brian: think would secure the country. stabbing the other day and someone got stabbed in the park.
4:12 am
steve: put together a map of least safe it would be scary. brian: i will put carley on it. ainsley: we would be on the top of the list on that, too. steve: white house end of the year exodus is rocking the vice president's office. ainsley: it comes amid a new report claiming the vice president bullies her staff. brian: do you believe this? peter doocy joins us live from the white house with more. peter? >> good morning. the headlines for vice president harris are getting worse. a new one in the "the washington post" says that plainly kamala harris staff exodus reignites questions about her leadership style and her future ambition. and in that article a former harris staffer anonymously says it clear not working with someone willing to do the prep and work with kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul crushing criticism and also her own lack of confidence. you are constantly propping up a bully and not really clear why. those either confirmed out or reported to be out are the harris spokesperson symone
4:13 am
sanders, her communications director ashley, the press operations director peter veld and deputy director of public engagement vince evans. people criticizing harris are not anonymous either. former staffer gill durand put name on this quote. the staff turnover will continue unless the white house takes charge and provides stewardship for the office. stakes are high. so the narrative of division and dysfunction must be swiftly put to rest. remember, the biden team added harris to the ticket last year as part of a political calculation that she could help him get here. but her own political future and her own ambitions are somewhat unknown at this point if she can't help herself or keep people in her office around long enough to help her. back to you. steve: peter, "the washington post" talked to 18 people connected to her office. and, you know, they have painted
4:14 am
a pretty bleak image. didn't you ask jen psaki about this last week? >> i did. and she basically said it's normal for people to want to leave the white house after about a year. especially if they were on the campaign before that. so they see this as part of a natural cycle. obviously some of the people on their way out have stronger feelings. steve: yeah, one former staffer says the vice president doesn't read the briefing materials and then when she is unprepared, she starts yelling at them. >> yeah. so will just be walking around the hallways listening to hear any raised voices behind closed doors. steve: peter, thank you very much. ainsley: if you read this article, says she is inconsistent. burns through seasoned staff members succeeded in other demanding high profile positions. occasional tirades from irate boss can be difficult. same old destructive pattern. gil duran the guy peter was
4:15 am
talking about worked years ago quit after five months in 2013 because of just the bullying. but he says she is repeating the same old destructive pattern. brian: this is what you heard about her when she was attorney general. this is what you heard about her when she was senate. this is what you heard big time even though she raised all that money and this that great opening speech when she was a candidate in california for president, and then you watched her in interviews be thoroughly unprepared and you wonder what is she even thinking? she has no answer on should we get rid of private insurance? she said yeah. for total open border. she actually said yes. and then you say to yourself, then she attacks joe biden, destroys him. and then the next day she -- in the debate. then you watch tulsi gabbard take her apart on the debate stage again. says well, you know, she only has 1%. i'm thinking to myself she doesn't seem to be studying. the staff is saying. love to minimize it and say it has something to do with race or
4:16 am
gender but coming from her own staff. they love to say it's republicans jealous of her or fear her or biden people that want to keep her down or there is a rivalry. no, the attacks are coming from the people who know her best. that's the fact that they have to live with. steve: the interesting part is we have been hearing over the last couple of weeks how high the administration and top democrats are on pete buttigieg. you know in joe biden decides not run and have pete step in and damning "the washington post" survey or rather story that questions her management ability, which really kind of limits her ability to run for president. like, okay, she wasn't even president, she was vice president. and look how many people. brian: people having short-term memory loss with pete buttigieg. pete buttigieg getting nowhere, winning nothing. he basically in south carolina fell apart and then quickly jumped out of the race clearly there is a deal behind the scenes you jump out now i will keep you around.
4:17 am
steve: a lot of people see him as the future of the party. brian: what has he done? didn't show up him the most supply chain. hasn't gone to one port yet. someone putting him forward better pr people. ainsley: is he not going to the border. i'm sure they are scared. if biden doesn't run again who do we have? ainsley: he is so progressive. >> we have smart. speaks several languages. i know is he a concert meanist. he has a military background. but his policies are so progressive. brian: right. ainsley: is that what the people of the party want. brian: talk to people in south bend which i have an affiliate there he is not popular. carley shimkus you have been assembling the news. carley: i have. michigan law enforcement say a person of interest who allegedly harbored the parents of ethan crumbley could be charged. the authorities found the couple in detroit basement on friday. the next day james and jennifer crumbley charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter. this after their son ethan
4:18 am
crumbley was charged as an adult with terrorism, first degree murder and other counts in the death of four people and injuring seven others. the oakland county sheriff telling msnbc that neither parent has shown any kind of remorse in jail and now oxford high school announcing that a third party will conduct an investigation into the actions the school took with ethan before the shooting. amid surge in crime, san francisco is now suspending a planned cannabis tax to help dispensaries compete with illegal drug dealers and theft. city supervisor raffaele mendelman telling the san francisco in part cannabis businesses struggling weight of out of control retail theft. the tax will be suspended until at least the end of next year. listen to this. the ceo of terminated about 9% of his staff over a zoom call. it a large chunk of those being laid off probably knew why.
4:19 am
he said in part you guys know that at least 250 of the people terminated were working an average of two hours a day while clocking 8 hours plus a day and the payroll system. they were stealing from you and stealing from our customers. how crazy is that the ceo says the reason people were fired 900 people over a zoom call the market official is i performance productivity. some people working from home were just working two hours but being paid for much more than that. steve: if that. it's one of those things where it's not like a company wide thing. it's like if you can see me right now, you are fired. carley: right? log on, make a sandwich that kind of thing, not good. ainsley: thank you, cancerly. steve: chris cuomo joining his brother on the unemployment line as the two facing mounting scandals. our own janice dean fought against the governor and his covid response. she will react coming up next. ainsley: and more black americans feeling abandoned by the democrats are uniting around

ainsley: what is sean's reaction to this, your husband. it's christmas time. he doesn't have his parents. janice: we can never bring them back. we can ask for accountability and answers. we still need to find out why did he put code positive patients into nursing homes? why did he cover up those numbers? why did he give out friends and family covid tests to chris cuomo when nursing homes couldn't get them toe literally save lives. there is so many answers we need to get to the bottom of. brian: chris cuomo behind the scenes damage control and choreograph his brother's defense. janice: lied to his staff. lied to his viewers, no, up i'm not helping anyone out. no i'm not getting information on any of these victims. that was a lie. he was actively trying to smear these women that came forward against his brother. steve: you mentioned that governor cuomo got over $5 million permanently to write this book. this sounds like state staff did

♪ steve on this monday morning, we are remembering long time kansas senator bob dole who passed away yesterday at the age of 98. ainsley: senator dole spent most of his life nearly 80 years in service to this country. brian: take a look back at life of patriotism, dedication and honor. >> i have never been prouder in
4:34 am
my life than to have been the republican nominee for president of the united states. [cheers and applause] >> as the 1996, republican none knee bob dole came as close as he ever would to winning the presidency. it's a dream he chased three times. he made that concession speech in russell, kansas to the people who had known him since his birthday in 1923. world war ii took dole from kansas to italy. just before the end of the year nazi machine gunfire shattered his upper body and destroyed his right shoulder. >> it was about 11 months i think before i could feed myself. i think i could have done it frankly if very honest about it probably at 8 months but the nurse was were very attractive. >> after his recovery, dole went from county prosecutor to the house to the senate. dole became the senate majority leader in 1984. he remained in leadership until 1996, resigning his senate seat
4:35 am
toe run for president. >> the make this moment far less the closing of one chapter than opening the glory proving the third time a charm. >> i accept your nomination to lead our party once again in the presidency of the united states. >> dole lost to bill clinton but remained in the public eye in more ways than one. he lent his image to big name products like viagra and pepsi. >> i feel like a kid again. >> he became a voice for veterans rights, visit guiltying the world war ii memorial on a regular basis and arranging travel for fellow world war ii veterans to do the same. >> senator doll who is himself a veteran and a wounded veteran at that former distinguished senator a man who knows washington well but more importantly knows the kind of questions to ask. >> in 2012 dole had one of his toughest days on capitol hill. visiting the casket of fellow world war ii veteran senator
4:36 am
daniel inouye of hawaii. a wheelchair bound dole needed help of his wife elizabeth and his aide to take the steps on his own feet. reportedly because he didn't want his long time friend to see him in a wheelchair. it was a similar scene in 2018, dole standing from his wheelchair to salute another fellow shoulder from the greatest generation and 41st president of the united states. george h.w. bush. that determination is how senator dole earned respect from both sides of the aisle. >> bob dole was 98, when i was growing up, we lived in russell, kansas. my dad was friends with bob dole back in the 1960's, when my dad died bob dole wrote me the most beautiful letter and called me. ainsley: really, that was nice. elizabeth dole from north carolina ran there. they also have a daughter robin. brian: let's bring in newt gingrich who served in the house when bob dole was leader.
4:37 am
how do you put career in perspective first as legislator? >> let me say first our hearts and prayers should also go out today for elizabeth. today would have been their 46th wedding anniversary. so, it's a very poignant time for elizabeth and for robin, his daughter. look, he was a very effective legislator. there is a certain mythology that in washington after you retire or pass away. he was not a kindler or gentler person. he was a very tough partisan who was also very good with people. he could on the one hand do everything possible to defeat the liberal democrats in the senate but at the same time be personal friends with a number of the folks that he was dealing with. and he was generally very effective. the contract with america did dramatically better in the senate because it had bob dole's support and because he thought through and i would go over
4:38 am
occasionally when i was speaker and we would try to solve some problem and i realized how much more complicated the senate is than the house is and dole in his career had mastered that complexity. he was a remarkable leader of the senate. steve: newt, he was tough but back then, you know, the two sides of the aisle could get stuff done together. yeah, i think that's partly because we had an ability to be very tough professionally but not personally to recognize that we were in a tough business but both sides were in a tough business. so, you had to respect your opponents. after all, they won elections, too. the people had chosen them to be there. and your job was to find a way to make it work not find a way just to make it stop. and i think that dole per sorenson find that. he did it in the house. but, remember, he was also a republican national committee chair. he was a very partisan republican. he came out of a state which
4:39 am
itself had been extraordinarily republican for virtually the entire history of the state. and i think the thing that most struck me never quite left russell, kansas. there is a piece of russell that was in him permanently wherever he was. ainsley: so sweet. there is on you have written an op-ed about hunter biden and it's the title is congress must investigate hunter biden and those protecting him and here is why. and you go through it all. you say this has national security implications, there has been the absence of honesty from the fbi. explain more. >> there is a new book out called laptop from hell. that is just astonishing. the reporter who wrote it actually went through the laptop's emails and puts them together for you there is no question so many examples of hunter biden having gotten money from the mayor -- the widow of the mayor of moscow

$3.5 million. money from ukrainians, specifically talks in the laptop about a meeting at cafe milano with ukrainians, russians and vice president biden coming to the meeting. they have -- the examples from china of multimillion dollars deals hunter biden is peddling influence in washington. i think it's astonishing that the justice department has had this laptop now for several years and refuses, refuses to do anything with it. so, i do think hunter biden is going to be investigated. brian: what about those 50 intelligence experts, including leon panetta and john brennan who signed off to say it was russian disinformation? think about that, newt. look at those names there. michael hayden. think about the names there. they signed up on their integrity. >> they collectively lied

brian kilmeade going in there, but first, let's take a look at your weather across the nation we have very warm temperatures ahead of this very powerful cold front, we're going to get up to 60 degrees here in new york city that's crazy for this time of the year, along the cold front, the potential for severe weather including tornadoes, see those little red polygons where we have active tornado storms for parts of louisiana up into tennessee, so, know what to do if there's a watch or warning in your area, obviously there are tornado warnings meaning that we have doppler radar indicated twister motion in those areas, and then we have our next slow-moving out of the rockies and that is the one that's going to bring us the potential for a snowstorm at least some of that energy moving along the east coast so there's your forecast, we'll see the potential for weather delays along the gulf coast, the tennessee, mississippi river valley, and then the northeast is going to get wet today, and we'll see some snow for tonight, on monday night, and then the next storm system moves in for the potential of a nor'easter that could bring
4:56 am
measurable snow along the east coast, we'll fine tune the forecast with fox weather download the app and get the latest. ainsley? is brian in here? i don't know. ainsley: he's not up here on set with us. >> is he in there? we'll go check it out. ainsley: thank you, janice. our next guest pushing back on the notion that all young black americans are progressive. featured in new york post op-ed, they say now is the time for republicans and black americans to unite over conservative values. political commentator and youtuber and ceo of the conscience conserve a derivative movement, felicia killings, joining us now, good morning. >> good morning. thank you for having me. ainsley: thank you for coming on with us so tell us why are you conservative? >> well, first of all, i would say that i was raised in a christian home, my grand parents are pastors and raised my mother to be christian which had her raise me to be christian and conservative but it wasn't until i was in middle school that i
4:57 am
realized i was conservative. i attended a school called victor christian academy in orlando, florida predominantly black christian school and it wasn't until about the 7th grade my teacher, ms. randolph, she advised us to research both sides of political parties and also to look at what a conservative is and a liberal and that's when i came to the realization that i was conservative but i was raised christian and conservative so it came natural to me with that realization. ainsley: how about you felicia? >> my father raised me to be conservative. this is just all i know, big shout out to dad whose watching right now and this is pretty much the experience for a lot of black americans. we are conservative in our values, however there has been a significant gap between the republican party and black voters and right now, what we're trying to do with the conscience conservative movement is to bridge that gap via education and training, just talking to black voters as well as to white conservatives so that we
4:58 am
understand there are commonalities and if we show up i'm telling you it's going to be a powerful experience even in the political spectrum. ainsley: sharice, four in 10 black democratic voters call themselves moderate but the democratic party doesn't seem to be moderate anymore. it's so progressive. >> right. i definitely agree and i will say that historically, black americans, we are conservative. when it comes to conservatism i believe that that does not align , basically, it doesn't have to do anything with political parties. when you are conservative it has do with values and that's what i told everyone. you can be conservative and not be republican. you can be conservative and be a democrat and also be independent so the point is, black americans are historically conservative and just because they are black doesn't mean they have to be liberal or they have to be democrat. they are historically conservative. ainsley: felicia you say black
4:59 am
americans are looking for a political home. what do you think will happen next year with the mid-terms and then we choose another president down the road? >> i think right now, conservatives and republicans have an opportunity to bridge this gap to make these alliances this is something i share with beloved conservatives almost daily on twitter class. it's about understanding black history, it's about understanding that black history is on the side of conservatism and if we can aspouse these messages in a more empowering way as opposed to a degrading humanizing manner we'll see more black americans especially black millennials especially among black male voters we'll start to see more of them aligning themselves with conservative politics because conservatism has promised to protect our growing black wealth which we are eagerly building day in and day out. ainsley: you made your dad proud , felicia, thank you so much. and thank you, god bless you. >> thank you. ainsley: thank you. stick around the final hour of fox & friends starts right now.

5:04 am
to do is show the document and a note from your doctor and if you had it within the last 90 days then you're cleared to travel in or out of the united states. brian: steve do you realize that's the way most of the rest of the world is doing it? steve: well we're catching up. brian: to have the natural immunity, they give credit for that, so i think that's important too. the other thing that's important as you just see zike emmanuel say i don't know what it is about the fda and cdc and we're not keeping the right stats about breakthroughs and what is moderna working on and those people having the negative after effects on this virus. we're looking from taking the vaccine, we're looking at things and using other country's data instead of ours which is why we're not leading in the south african investigation of omicron. ainsley: well omicron is in one- third of the united states, and if you are traveling out of the country even passengers two years or older flying into the united states you have to also show proof of your child
5:05 am
testing negative, 24 hours before the flight and if your flights at 1:00 p.m. on a friday , you can get tested any time the day before. brian: go ahead. steve: i was going to say, this all on the heels of the fact with the holidays loom ing, we had hoped that we be completely over this , it's not the case. listen to some experts try to figure out when is this thing going to be done? >> if we set our sights ongoing to zero covid, we will never satisfy that. i really don't believe we will. covid will be indemic, meaning there will be strains that circulate. they will change, but we want to make that a minimal risk disease by vaccines, by pre-existing immunity, by the oral drugs. we need to go along with our economy, we can't ruin our children, we can't throw people into depression and cause them to be more addicted and die of overdoses. we have to get on with our lives and live with this with all of the tools we have right now. >> the end of the pandemic is a
5:06 am
political decision, not an immunology decision and that's a basic fact. stop the panic, stop it, we have no technology to stop the cases from coming, but we have to protect you if you actually do get sick. steve: and he makes a really good point. stop counting the cases, the metric that everybody talks about that is more important is count the number of hospitalizations, how many people are actually in the hospital. that's why in new york state they curtailed some elective surgeries because they are worried about gigantic in-flow of covid patients with the omicron as we head to the holidays but how many people are actually being hospitalized? brian: just to tell you about how counter productive this is kicking all these medical workers out even ones with natural immunity and saying you're fired at the same time you're worried about a new wave and variant coming to new york, and typical of this governor an overreaction. the minute we hear about something going on in south
5:07 am
africa, we ban eight countries from coming here, and then in new york, they say oh, elective surgeries are done. really? since when? and by the way, we've been educated for this of late over the last two years. almost every hospital to be profitable has to be about 90% full, so if the emergency rooms are usually 95% full so all you need is just a little bit more of a surge, people go well they are bursting at the seems. well the goal is to be 95% full, and the thing is if you're worried about it allow your staff to actually work, don't fire them, might be effective. ainsley: you're right. they jump jumped the gun on this because if you look at south africa they aren't seeing a big up-tick in hospitalization s. everyone who gets this says mild symptom, runny nose and they aren't losing taste and smell generally, exactly. brian: do you realize too it was president biden who i think tweeted out or said that when president trump came out and said listen we've got to have a ban on certain countries and he said some african countries shouldn't get in here and he said well it's because there are
5:08 am
people of a certain color and then when joe biden bans eight countries with no rationale behind it, no one brings that up at all? steve: right and as it turns out it sounds like omicron was in other countries before it settled on the southern region of africa. brian had a great interview with a restaurant owner here in new york earlier in fox & friends, our first hour. she can't find anybody to work. she's got the help wanted sign out on all of her locations, and part of it is the mayor here in new york, bill deblasio, in addition to if you want to go in you gotta have had the vaccine, now, he's talking about you have to have the vaccine and a boost er. that's not going to boost her business, watch. >> it's so hard to find anybody to work in the service industry right now. i mean, i'm working 70-80 hours a week myself just to be able to sustain the business, so unfortunately, the mayor has been really destructive and
5:09 am
called the key to unlock new york city. it's destructive. it's hard to find employees. it's hard to find people to work now we're putting another thing over them that they need to be vaccinated in order to come in and get a job. i mean, what kind of world do we live in, what city do we live in and it goes way beyond new york city obviously we see this happening throughout the world and i'd love to emplore the mayor to take a look at what he's doing because he's doing more harm than good. brian: part of the reason why they can't hire people is they don't want to get vaccinated, a lot of people don't, especially younger people. also there's a sign on her front , she has two rests, one says we don't discriminate, vaccinated or unvaccinated, trying to tell people, and any official, i'm not asking anybody if they're vaccinated or not. it's hard enough to get people to work here, hard enough to get people to come in here. ainsley: i remember talking to this one couple that was young and i told you this or maybe i told you, steve, and they said they just both quit their jobs in television and they are just going to figure out what they want to do in the next phase of
5:10 am
their life and i thought how can you do that, don't you need a paycheck? i don't understand why these people can't find workers, or why people want to stay-at-home and not work. steve: well you know, here in new york, as long as the kato institute had their freedom in the 50 state survey, new york state has been the least free state in the united states and when you look at the top five, it's new york, hawaii, california, new jersey and oregon. the metric is, they're looking at taxation and eminent domain laws and licensing and drug policy and lifestyle and choices and those are the least-free states and, you know, you hear bill deblasio now saying okay and you'll have to have a boost er. you can understand how new york earned that reputation. ainsley: the top free freeest states in the united states, new hampshire, florida, nevada, tennessee and south dakota and i know that new hampshire, florida, and tennessee you don't pay state income tax there. steve: that's great. part of being free. brian: i think that's important
5:11 am
the other thing is, it's just amazing in the big picture what's going on because if you looked at the new green deal from a few years ago they talk about having guaranteed income, people working less, they talk about people being paid the criminal justice reform, then you watch this smash-and-grab, you watch people refusing to work, you watch the payments that went out for over a year and people are getting paid just to have kids with these child tax deductions and then you wonder why there's people like you describe this saying i'm looking back to find out what i want to do. you guys, nobody i knew could afford to sit back and say well i'm going to think about what i want to do next. you have to have a job while you're figuring it out and maybe do some career seminars at night on your time, but i never saw more people who are more free from a paycheck and we're not worried about it, in my life. ainsley: i agree. steve: well they ran on it and now fast forward to today there are a lot of those policies that we discussed in the public
5:12 am
square and a lot of people don't like them. brian: but america used to be the over-workers. what happened to the work ethic? turning now to the white house ahead of president biden's video call with vladimir putin tomorrow, fox news obtained satellite images of russia military activity along the ukrainian border. steve: this as the biden administration is reportedly about to announce this week a diplomatic boycott of the beijing olympics. ainsley: peter doocy is live at the white house with the latest. hey, peter. reporter: good morning, and president biden is expected to talk tomorrow to vladimir putin to figure out what exactly putin 's intentions are with his next door neighbor, ukraine. >> we have serious concerns about the buildup that we've seen of russian forces near the border with ukraine and i wanted to make clear directly to the foreign minister the serious consequences that will result if russia actually committed acts

of aggression against ukraine. reporter: these new satellite images on screen show russian tactical battle groups with tank s and aftertillery and troops at the border and critics believe the actors think they can just do whatever they want. there is a concern and there's talk about planning that the united states could end up on the wrong end of a two-on-one fast break. if russia moved on ukraine and china moved on taiwan those things i think are a ripple effect of what happened in afghanistan, and our other foreign policy disasters that have already taken place in just 10 short months of this administration. reporter: now president biden is teasing punishment for putin if he orders that invasion of ukraine. >> what i am doing is putting together what i believe to be, will be the most comprehensive and meaningful set of initiative s to make it very very

5:15 am
who would still be free to compete, why he thinks the athletes should boycott, not show up to china. here he is yesterday. >> as an athlete what do you want to say to other athletes who are headed to beijing for the olympics in february? >> shame on them. you know? all the gold in the world that you can win is not more important than your principles. come on. i mean, while we're speaking right now there's a genocide happening and shame on international olympic committee that they are sleeping in the same bed with china so someone had to call them out. brian: i think the people that should be called out is the ioc for granting the olympics to china at all. i mean, you know the way they act, you know what they're doing , they have upgraded the intensity of their muslim concentration camps. you see what they just did and they arrested those protesters or the people who stood up for democracy in hong kong and now they are threatening taiwan and you know what's happening with that 35-year-old, their

5:26 am
address the root causes of irregular migration, deeply flawed. steve: deeply flawed, the biden administration is to set to reinstate what they refer to as the deeply flawed trump-era remain in mexico policy later today after being forced to revive the program, by court order, which was upheld by the u.s. supreme court, but after publicly condemning they don't believe in the policy our next guest warns the white house is sending the wrong message to stop the surge. actually, let's have our next guest say that. former acting dhs secretary and heritage foundation visiting fellow chad wolf joins us. chad, good morning to you. >> good morning to you, thanks for having me. steve: great to have you so as soon as they could, they tried to pull the plug on remain in mexico but court said hey wait a minute, you did this illegally, you gotta put it back in place so that's where we are today. >> you're right. unfortunately, the biden administration made a very disastrous decision at the beginning of the administration to cancel this program which i
5:27 am
believe is one of the main causes of this historic border crisis that we see today so now a court is telling them to re institute it making some changes to the program, we'll have to see whether they're effective or not, but at the end of the day, this administration has said over and over again, it doesn't believe in the remain in mexico program that it will cancel the program as soon as it gets relief from a court, so again, it's sending the wrong message to migrants, to cartel members, to other smugglers and traffic kers. they know that the biden administration will not implement this program the way it should be, and they're just going to wait them out so they can have the program canceled and we can continue to see this catch and release instituted throughout the country. steve: what do you mean they won't implement it properly, does that mean they are going to go hey, guys, and gals down on the border don't arrest the people, let them in anyway? >> well, there's a couple of things they are making subtle changes to the program. they have announced some of the changes and some of the other changes they have not
5:28 am
announced so one thing they are doing is asking every enrollee whether they have a fear of returning back to mexico after a while this will catch on and people will understand and migrants will understand all i have to say is i have a fear of returning to mexico and i won't be enrolled in the program so it's a very effective way to undermine the program in the beginning. there are other ways you can do that, that you can assure the protections that certain migrants may need from an asylum protection standpoint, but to ask every enrollee whether they have a fear to return to mexico, people will catch on and they will understand whether they have a fear or not if they say yes they won't be enrolled or sent back to mexico and the program will be ineffective. steve: that will be the new way they gain the system but when you look at how effective it was during the trump adminitration, essentially it turned off the flow of migrants into the country. i don't think the biden administration wants them to stop the message still is, come on, the doors open. >> well absolutely and mpp, even during the trump adminitration, was just one step
5:29 am
of a multi-faceted process that we had in place whether from the asylum cooperative agreement s, the effective border wall system and the list goes on and on so mpp was a very integral part but just one part and so what we see from this administration is over 10 months they really haven't done anything different to stem the flow and so just instituting remain in mexico by itself, i don't think will be as effective as it could be. steve: let's see what happens chad thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. steve: you bet. coming up on 8:30 in the east, california is facing a surge in smash-and-grab robberies like that right there, but despite the videos, aoc says organized retail theft isn't actually happening. what? we'll ask dan bongino about that coming up, next. >> ♪ the cold hard truth as you showed up in that dress just to mess with my head ♪

retailers plead for stricter shoplifting laws, congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez claims the crimes aren't happening saying a lot of the allegations are not actually panning out and i believe it's a walgreens in california cited it but the data didn't back it up. former nypd officer and unfilter ed host dan bongino. dan? this is why they didn't want her campaigning in virginia or any purple state. does she speak for the democratic party? >> um, i don't even, i'm not sure who she speaks for. i could tell you, no, no, she does, she speaks for the dopey imbusol crowd. listen, iran for office a few times, thankfully it didn't work out so i wasn't contaminated by this swamp rodents but i met a lot of politicians and there's only one or two things trying to explain politicians behavior when they say ridiculous absurdi ties like this. number one they are just really
5:35 am
dopey or number two, they're liars and typically in my experience i'm not kidding it's usually number two. they are really skilled liars. when it comes to joe biden and a oc though i'm not messing you i genuinely say are they just really dumb because i'm not really sure with those two. she sees it happening. now here's the thing. this speaks to the essence of liberalism being this corrosive cancer in our society. you know, aoc and people like that claim to be with their liberal ideology in it for the little guy, tolerance co -exist and all that stuff but actually the policies they push like bail reform and weak on crime hard on police stories, what they actually do is destroy the livelihoods of the people in the district that they are over, it's hard to believe. one more quick point, brian. i said often on this show having been a police officer and looked into the criminal components to this often, the overwhelming majority of crime is committed by a very small number of people , when you let those people out, and you don't put them in jail you obviously get a spike in crime, as it goes

up almost geometrically. they don't want to tell you that because they are just liars. brian: a very good point plus they aren't stealing things to live, but so they can profit. >> yeah, yes. they aren't stealing from, you know, kroger. they are stealing from gucci and fendi. what are you doing eating the g ucci bag, boiling the leather like they did, you know, where they were freezing to death during the revolutionary war? is this ridiculous? what are you eating the shoes? brian: they are reselling them. they say mobsters are paying these men and women to steal and it's very organized fashion. the other big story out in san francisco, big shocker. a restaurant refused to serve two police officers and then asked them to leave because others in that restaurant were un un uncomfortable because they had guns and uniforms and tried to walk it back saying we made a mistake and hope this is a teach able moment for us as we repair and continue to build bridges with the sfpd, these
