afghan combat interpreter arrives at his new home here in the u.s. we will bring you that plus the friday lightning round with the panel. winners and losers. we have it all for you. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and still unafraid. "fox news primetime" hosted by pete hegseth starts right now. >> pete: you are not one of them, you know. thank you, bret. appreciate it. ♪ all right, good evening, america. it's 7:00 p.m. on the east coast and 6:00 p.m. in god's country which means it's time for "fox news primetime." i'm pete hegseth. today we witnessed a political clean-up effort unseen in american history. the aftermath of say the deep water horizon oil spill, metaphorically speaking by the way, pails in comparison to what happened this morning in terms of political clean-up.
when kamala harris, white house staffers and most of the democrat establishment rushed to the rescue of sleepy joe biden after his disastrous news conference full-court press and media. appearing on almost every channel in an effort to clean up joe's mess. you see, it's an old rule in politics, when something goes right, you let it stand on its own, kind of like an exclamation point. but, when it goes wrong, oh then it's clean-up time. who in the world thought joe biden standing at a podium for two hours would go right. from russia and ukraine to the legitimacy of the 2022 midterms, oops. harris psaki and the rest of the dems had nothing but splaining to do today. now we all watched joe biden yesterday. we heard what he had to say. we tried to understand it. but that didn't stop the biden team from gaslighting all of us.
today, they made sure we were crystal clear about what he really meant. >> i think you heard very clearly multiple times last night from the president we just want to be -- have always wanted to be clear the president has been crystal clear i think. you saw the president make a statement or convey clearly his point of view this morning which is reflective of exactly what he said. most importantly to president putin. >> let me be very clear what the president has conveyed directly to president putin. >> the president was very clear he has a plan to do that. >> i think you heard the president be very clear-eyed about that. >> it is clear to us that the decision is probably in his hands. >> on the subject of ukraine, i will tell you that the president has been very clear. >> it is less than clear because 30 minutes after the news conference the white house press secretary had to actually clarify the president remarks. >> savanna, i'm being clear with you right now. >> yes. okay. >> so if you are interested, i will continue to be clear. >> we are clear and have been
clear for quite some time. >> pete: you stay that someone is clear when they have definitely not been clear at all. so, i think the white house cleaning crew they might have missed a few spots. clean up on aisle -- clean up on every aisle? because i'm more confused now than i was after joe biden's speech. why is it so hard for this administration to actually make just basic sense? well it's an unwholly alliance of a radical failed ideology and feckless incompetence. but, lucky for us, the american people are noticing, how could they not though had in hutch napper in chief. new polling shows 70%, 7-0 percent of americans don't want joe biden to run for another term. that is beyond an alarming number for a sitting president, only one year in. almost three quarters of the country have said they are
crying uncle. they said i have had enough. so if not biden, then who? well, one person who thinks she is ready to pounce is the vice president. during her morning media blast it was all lights, camera, kamala. as the v.p. served as her own hype woman talking herself up and making sure the american people know just how important she is. >> well, i will tell you that i -- every morning, start my morning and my day reading the presidential daily brief. the pdb. i'm often in the situation room, and i will tell you i will tell you -- and i will tell you. >> and i will tell you. >> but i will tell you this. and in the year that i have been here as vice president, i have witnessed him continuously. >> the issue i was there last night in the chamber of the senate. >> i have met. >> i have met with prime ministers and presidents. >> i have been able to travel. >> i have met some of the most
extraordinary people. >> i'm not going to give up. >> and that's how i feel. i take that seriously. >> you know, i will tell you and you will appreciate, this gayle, last week i was in atlanta and i had a visit with ambassador andy young. >> i start every morning roading the presidential daily briefing. >> i will repeat myself and i'm vice president of the united states. >> pete: i have done things. i've met people. i read. and i am the vice president. watch out, joe, you are number two is coming for you. but, if kamala wants a seat at the head of the table, at an absolute minimum she needs to be handle like toughish questions from fellow democrats without completely losing her cool. >> doesn't that show republicans are willing to help the initiative. >> let me finish. >> what? >> pete: are you finished now, kamala? good, because it looks like the entire administration, well,
it's finished, too. >> here to respond, karl rove, former white house deputy chief of staff and joe concha, both are fox news contributors. karl and joe, you guys do -- you are jacks of all trades but karl on the political side you have been there and done in the middle of administrations and good times and bad. joe, you know a little bit about how the media reacts to certain things and how politicians attempt to get the media to react to certain things. karl, i will start with you. assess the last, i don't know, 24 hours. what the biden administration thought they were doing and how it's actually unfolded. >> yeah, look, i think the problem with president biden's statement on ukraine last night was not that it was, you know, a misstatement. i think the problem is that he stated his policy, which is that if it's a minor incursion, let them have it, which is as you know a huge mistake. you know, he has already made a mistake there is strategic ambiguity matters.
we don't go out and say if china tries to take taiwan we are going to defend taiwan but by god we give every signal that we are and should have done that with ukraine the first thing he said was we're not going to be no military as if they attack ukraine not going to engage militarily. that was the wrong thing to say. he was telling us last night what he actually expects and what he believes and what he will do if there is a minor incursion maybe we can live with that. that's really, really troubling. today when they sent people out he has been very clear. he was very clear last night about how weak he is on the issue of ukraine. and attempt an attempt by the russians to reestablish the soviet sphere of influence in central and eastern europe is there disconnect between what he talked about yesterday and what real people are talking didn't
talk about the other border. talk about minor incursions. how disconnected is this white house from the real people? >> this is what i wrote about in the "wall street journal" weekly column. one of the biggest problems they have consistently faceside that they have overpromised and undelivered on covid which was his big deal. then they have focused on things that are not the concerns of ordinary americans. is he out there trying to sell a gigantic expansion of the welfare state and ordinary americans are saying, you know what? i'm worried that inflation is the prices that i'm having to pay at the grocery and the gas pump are way too high and my paycheck is not keeping up with the increase in prices? and he goes out and talks about the federal takeover of the elections and people are saying, do you know what? what i'm worried about is the government is spending too much money and you better rein it in because my kids and grandkids are not going to be able to pay it back. the disconnect and dissidence between what they're focused on and what the ordinary american is. that's why 28% of the american people think the country is on the right track and 64% say it's
off on the -- going in the wrong direction. that's a big reason why because the president is not talking about the things they are concerned about. joe help me out on the media piece with this. took to the podium because he knew he had to. he took to the podium and they took to the cable news today and circuits all day long. what did they hope to accomplish it and did they accomplish it. >> they did not accomplish it things are as clear as mud. to use kamala harris term clear. what is our policy in terms of russia and ukraine. and what if they do make a minor incursion. what are they going to do? vladimir putin probably knows. probably not much, right? and you mentioned before the disconnect, boy, it's such a big deal. not one question yesterday about violent crime skyrocketing throughout this country. american cities spilling in to the suburbs. joe biden doesn't talk about that in major speeches anyway. and then karl mentioned the border before. that's right. no questions specifically about the border as well. 2.2 million people coming into
this country last year, pete. that's triple the size of washington, d.c. that total population. so, kamala harris, to put her out there, even to the nbc today show to put out the fire, the porch light is on but it appears no one is home. two words come to mind watching that interview. defleckive and defensive. and what's utterly amazing to the point of crap tastic is how the vice president of the united states goes into nationally televised interviews by seemingly not prepping in any way, shape, or form. if i were her media coach or someone on her communications team the very first thing i would tell her look, madam vice president there is an excellent chance one of the first questions is going to been the president's claim future elections will somehow be stolen by republicans that they could actually change vote totals. you will probably be asked about that. we have been trying to clean it up since. you would think she would be prepared for that instead, she becomes she is a deer in the headlights not like a regular car it's an 18-wheeler like me

>> pete: nothing to see here just the nation's two top democrats questioning election integrity. biden in his embarrassing speech and press conference yesterday cast doubt on whether the 2022 midterm results would be legitimate if a divisive voting rights legislation wasn't passed. >> if this isn't passed, do you still believe the upcoming election will be fairly conducted and its results will be legitimate? >> well, it all depends on, huh, whether or not we are able to make the case to the american people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election.
the increase in the prospect of being illegitimate direct proportion of not being able to get these reforms passed. >> pete: man, i can still bear live make it clue that clip. it's all a power play. he is trying to scare you by making you think if his agenda doesn't go through, elections will be rigged and america will be facing a doomsday scenario. but those bills were blocked rightfully by the senate yesterday thanks not just to republicans but to democrats. that didn't stop joe's next in charge from, of course, spewing the same exact rhetoric today. kamala blew up at an msnbc host -- nbc hostin a rowfned rehab . >> the issue is that there are two bills. the john lewis voting rights act and the freedom to vote act that have been the -- the solution that has been offered to address the fact that around our country states have put in place laws that are purposely making it
more difficult for the american people to vote. >> if the bills were debated and they didn't pass. >> if i may finish. if i may finish. >> but the specific question if you don't mind, does he think now that these bills haven't been passed that the '22 midterms won't be legitimate or fair? or free? >> let's not conflate issues. >> pete: are we really surprised by any of this? liberals have been undermining faith in our elections for decades. it's kind of something they do. >> i'm very interested to know what is happening with the absentee ballots. there are too many allegations of egg regulators. my advice to al gore is you keep fighting. >> you can run the best campaign. you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you. >> concession means to say that the process was fair. i am complicit if i say that
that system is fair. >> that was the governor of georgia, she thinks she is. and that was hillary clinton in 2019 three years later it never ends. as for joe, don't worry about him. his team did even more damage control. >> he absolutely cannot predicting that the 2022 elections would be illegitimate. the point he was making is that the former president asked a number of states, seven or more, in fact, to overturn the outcome of the election. now, obviously, if there is an effort to do that we have got to fight against that. that's what our commitment is to doing. everything you can people's rights. >> but the damage is already done. joe's team can't clean up this mess anymore. he and vice president giggles have already said what they really believe. and america heard them loud and
clear. the first time, the second time and the third time. joining me now missouri g.o.p. senator josh hawley. senator, thanks so much for being here. after all of that, what did you hear? >> what i heard joe biden said loud and clear why he is going to lose in november. democrats don't accept elections they don't win. it happened in 2,000, 2004, it happened in 2016. now it's going to be 2022. if joe biden thought that his party was going to win these elections then all would be fine. but he thinks and because the polls suggest is he going to lose them. his party is going to lose them, the house and the senate, therefore they are illegitimate. it's dangerous, it's wrong, it's ridiculous. and everybody knows it's ridiculous. and, yet, there he is out there saying it. >> pete: absolutely right. yet, for them 2020 totally above board. but kamala says this is an
amazing clip. she -- something she said in one of the interviews about when she talks to world leaders, they're questioning our voting system. listen to kamala harris. >> i have met with prime ministers and presidents from around the globe, both partners and allies of ours. they are asking what is going on with voting rights in america. they are monitoring to wonder and question whether there is an erosion of our democracy and, therefore, an erosion of one of the best role models of what a democracy does and can do. >> pete: senator, could it be that they are calling the white house because kamala harris and joe biden keep saying and building a straw man about their own legislation that creates confusion in the world that my goodness i don't know what america certain people are blocked at the polls and not allowed to vote. >> yeah, you know, i'm not sure that i really believe that little story the vice president just told there. but if it is happening i bet
world leaders do have a lot of questions. they probably wonder who the heck is in charge of this white house. it doesn't appear to be the president of the united states. it sure doesn't appear to be the vice president of the united states. so who is really running the show and after this disastrous first year, i mean, the american people want to know what is going on. this is why they are in such trouble come november. the bottom line is, this pete, our democracy is strong, that the american people are strong and in charge and their votes are the ones that count. their voices are the ones that matter. to try to delegitimize those ahead of time. to say try to say that whatever decision the american people come to in november is illegitimate because you don't think you are going to like the outcome of it, boy, that is playing with fire and that's exactly what the democrats are doing and, unfortunately they have a history of doing that of thinking they know better than the american people do. and that's just the same song, 50th verse that we're hearing from them again. >> pete: you are exactly right, senator. that's exactly what joe biden said from the podium. he effectively said we need to explain this in even more simple
terms because people just don't understand how awesome we are. that seems to be the refrain they always come up with. senator josh hawley, thanks for your time. appreciate it tonight. >> thank you. >> pete: all right, coming up, the cdc makes a stunning admission on the power of natural immunity. so will democrats follow the science or cling to their vaccine mandates? find out next. ♪ limu emu ♪ and doug. we gotta tell people that liberty mutual customizes car insurance so you only pay for what you need, and we gotta do it fast.

pete pete welcome back. our d.c. overlords, you know, the politicians and the experts that they worship have been dismissing the power of natural immunity against covid-19 for more than a year. longer than that. as they pushed a one vax fits all approach to ending covid-19. crushing the virus. so you may be surprised to hear about this new admission
published not by a journal but by the cdc itself according to new study natural immunity provided better protection against the delta variant than vaccines. it's actually really big news. should be splashed across the headlines in newspapers across america. in theory, it should convince politicians pushing universal vaccine mandates even on those who have had natural immunity to change course in the name of common sense and following the science. joe biden has said -- how many times has he said he is only going to do one thing. he is going to follow the science. the question is will he now? here now texas congressman chip roy. congressman, thanks for being here. you have been fighting these mandates in washington, d.c. and elsewhere loud about it talking about natural immunity. now the cdc admits even more effective than vaccines.
yet, in that same report they said we still recommend people who have had that natural infection infection to get the vaccine. is this about science at all. >> yeah, pete, good to be on as always. it's not about science, right? this is all about power. i'm sitting here in the nation's capitol, just a few hundred yards away from the capitol building. if i want to get a bite to eat get a burger i will have to show a vax card. nighttime going to do it. i refuse to do that. that's what they're doing, putting pressure on businesses. sending out all the bureaucrats to try to shut people down big board 8th street about 10 blocks from here. making it harder to get a burgner washington, d.c. hard to get a burger in nation's capitol than it is to get carjacked. all while we see the science. we see it's exactly happening. the cdc is coming out now admitting what we all have known the natural immunity is at least as effective or more effective than the vaccine. i think it's more effective and this report seems to indicate that the "wall street journal" reported on this today. marty makary has been talking about this on fox and otherwise.
is he a good constituent. this is the actual truth. they don't want to admit it they are having to cover their own tracks for their forced decisions that have shut down an economy. harmed children, shut down schools, harmed businesses, caused people to have mental health issues. not get the healthcare they need and to do absolutely nothing to help the american people. the truth is going to keep coming out that and all roads are going to lead to big healthcare. follow the money driving it all. >> pete: congressman, everything you have seed is right. if i'm joe biden and staring at my poll numbers or kamala harris staring at my even lower poll numbers. i realize the american people aren't buying what i'm selling and i'm a politician which means actually i ambiance holden at some point to the ballot box in '22 and '24. why wouldn't -- maybe the experts won't admit it maybe the sigh scientists won't. why wouldn't a politician ever step back and say okay, i said i will follow the science. now i have got some science that maybe just gives me an out to
say we can lose some of these things to get, i don't know, not just people's lives back but get people back to work, get the economy back. get schools back open. why not seize on this as opposed to pretend like it's not an important thing? >> you are thinking about it like a veteran and rational human being who wants what's best for his country, not a politician who is beholden to a radical left run by the squad and radical leftists and school boards and all of these community organizing groups all across the country. that's who is guiding this country. that's who is leading the president to follow this leftist agenda. and we see it bearing out across all of the issues, crime waves spiking, massive open borders, cartel, opioids flooding into our communities, we are seeing what's happening with ukraine, with nord stream two and failure to actually hold russia accountable. we are in danger. our country is getting worse, and biden is not doing anything about it is he doubling down on it right? you saw his speech last night doubling down on all of these
issues and now actually saying we can't trust the elections before we even have the election because is he trying to set the stage for it he will refuse to acknowledge the science now on these vaccine mandates because they are so far invested in it they can't back away from it. >> pete: it's true. it's sad but i fear that you are correct congressman. keep up the fight i hope you are finding really good microwave meals at this point. >> i'm going to head over to the commonwealth of virginia and governor youngkin where we can go get some food. >> pete: that's a good point. that's a very good point. hope you do that all right, congressman, thank you very much. appreciate it. all right. big tech is staring down the barrel of a series of bipartisan antitrust bills headed for the senate. now, there is appetite to regulate big tech on subjects of antitrust and censorship get views from different sides. is everyone in the senate on board to hold their feet to the fire in some way, shape, or form? we have recently learned that
senate majority leader chuck schumer may have a bit of a conflict of interest when it comes to two of the big tech giants. you see, his daughter jessica schumer is a registered lobbyist at amazon. that's how washington, d.c. works. powerful dad, i've got connections, help out the company. and his other daughter alison is a product marketing manager at facebook. got very effective last names. so the question is. can chuck, key in any way remain impartial? i, for one am not he author of "woke inc." and also vivek, you gave a phenomenal speech today at the miseducation of "america live" summit. i hope folks check it out at fox nation. he talked about how our founders red indicated and it was excellent. othank you for being with us
tonight: when you look at faith give you anything real would happen to the big guy. >> look, did i talk about our founding fathers this morning in richmond. they would be rolling in their graves if they watched the crony capitalist system that governs today. chuck schumer is the face of crony capitalism. look, when i saw the story i thought jessica lowly programmer at amazon? no she is a registered lobbyist for amazon. can i predict exactly what's going to happen, pete. i think you can, too. now that the story is out though he will overcompensate for it and go in the opposite direction. as much as chuck schumer cares about the well-being of his daughters' careers he definitely care about his own career first. it is a law of geometry that the shortest difference between two points is the distance between chuck schumer and a camera. that's actually prey predictable about what's going to happen. another peels of evidence of how deep these connections go: i'm glad doing good work. going to have the opposite of the effect it might have had if they didn't reveal it.
>> pete: you are right. we deserve to know. you talked about companies. you have talked about big tech left and right come at this issue from very different angles. realistically speaking, when we talk about taking on big tech, is there anything that happens on a bipartisan basis that's meaningful at all? >> look, i don't see a clear path to a bipartisan answer right now in congress. in principle there should be. the section 230 should be an opt in statute. okay. i will tell you what that means. there is a special cloak of immunity that you get if you are a certain type of internet company. that should be on the in to say if you really need those benefits, then that comes with certain strings attached. debate what those should be. they should be that you abide by the constitution of the united states. the same constraint that applies to the federal government. that's the solution we need to see. corona capitalism doesn't help and that's exactly what this story about chuck schumer is all about. >> pete: it's a good point.
constitution we could all help. vivek, thank you so much. great stuff. good seeing you. >> good seeing you. >> pete: in person today in virginia. coming up, who says kids don't like games anymore? why a school in virginia is playing privilege bingo with its students. delightful. and if you are a military kid, guess what? you lose. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

28-year public school teacher. rebecca, so many of our viewers are going to look at this and says this has to be, you know, outside the realm of normal. but, based on what have you seen, this idea of privilege, bingo. how far does it go in our classroom? >> well, i'm not surprised by this at all, pete. this is going on all over the country. it's the so-called teacher unions that are pushing this agenda on to our little kids and it's very dangerous to our republic. this is nothing compared to some of the other things i have seen. their goal is to divide and conquer. they want us to hate military, hate the police, hate teachers, hate doctors, the more they can divide and conquer, the better. we have to be aware of that and push back. >> pete: you are exactly right, rebecca, the reason this is getting so much attention, part of it is that it is in virginia and glenn youngkin said this stuff is going to stop and be a stair down on that. the other reason is they mention the military. they always mention the other
scwarsz in the box which i mention right here. heterosexual, christian, white, parents are married. cisgender, able-bodied. you go down the list. these are things that are basic and taught often as privilege inside. this isn't just a college thick. they want to say this is a college thing. this is high schools, middle schools, and even elementaries. >> absolutely. this is down in the kindergarten if you have an activist teacher. if you have a good teacher, a real teacher, these things aren't happening. union activist teachers, yes. my son was accused of being the biggest oppressor because he is a white, straight, christian male conservative. that's who they are after. so they're trying to undermine, you know, everything this country is about. good godly men and women and so like i said before, we have to fight this. >> pete: rebecca, what do they do when they confront the idea that you are a military kid who, you know, is the son of an e 4 specialist and you have moved twice in your life and you live
outside of a military base in an economic class that is, you know, middle class, maybe at best, compare that to somebody who is the son or daughter of a college professor who happens to be black or gay or anything on the other side of the spectrum. how do you account for real privilege when you are just checking boxes? >> right, wow. well, you don't. i mean, it's just so obvious that what they are doing is -- it's phoney, it's orwellian, it's sophomoric. it's ridiculous, it's division, division, division. there is no sense about it. and so, you know, these folks who are supposedly privileged, you know, like these college professors, a lot of them are making a lot more money and have their pensions and everything else, you know, would be far more privileged than some child in the military family. i know a lot of military families, they are not making a whole lot of money and they're
sacrificing for this country. once again it's divide and conquer. >> pete: you are exactly right. by the way, i would be remiss if i did not mention i also saw rebecca friedrichs today on one of our panels on the miseducation of "america live" summit. it was on unions. rebecca, you pointed out and i can't give you chance to comment on it but i will paraphrase, teachers unions are usually neither teachers or unions, they are are there to protect political powers. did a phenomenon job and folks can check it out fox nation, fox nation thank you, thank you, up next, the miseducation of america continues, but don't worry, we are going to keep exposing it after the break. ♪ those you love. vanguard. become an owner. cough cough sneeze sneeze... vanguard.
