3:01 am
every time the song comes on it reminds me of my youth. >> once a summer i see him. >> i was a member of the fan club in any 30s. i think i still am. >> taking it to the next level. >> once a year my wife and i will go see david matthews somewhere. >> good for you. >> that's not all. >> youthful sport that i still endeavor as well, and we took todd into the water and did a little surfing. maybe we'll show that to you later. >> this is going to be good. he's like a prosurfer and i don't know about this one over here. >> i think the audience is going to want to see it. >> sad on so many levels. >> but we must get to some news. if you were watching the news late yesterday afternoon, you may have seen the protests going on out in portland. grand zero for antifa protesters
3:02 am
becoming vi violent. here you see an antifa member with a harmer smashing the bus door window. 13 arrests were made. >> yeah. if you follow it on social media and you saw it -- i was watching andy's account. he's always on the scene. he was the journalist assaulted last time by antifa. he was covering it. one of the things that was most stunning to me. believe me, i understand that law enforcement has a difficult job here but police were retreating in certain areas. i looked overwhelmed. there were areas where they were stepping back. and that's frightening and alarming. i understand they have their hands full but something needs to be done here. various weapons seized, bear spray, metal and wooden poles, you had shields. so the question is, is there a better way to manage this?
3:03 am
there was an enormous amount -- you look and see 13 arrests. how many people were causing distress and weren't able to be held accountable because the police force was totally overwhelmed. and you can't have a police system that looks like it's in retreat. that's a scary system for the police. >> these are shenanigans in the worst order. bear spray. who goes to the event with metal and wooden poles unless they're planning violence. the mayor of portland did sate wasn't as bad as it could have been. but if you're one of the people that got beaten up or if you're a resident of portland that wants the city back, you're upset about this. dave crenshaw put this in amazing context. me writes, in hong kong
3:04 am
antifascist wave american flags, fight fascists. in portland ant fascists born american flag, portland is a sad showing of where we are today all around obviously yes by greenland. inserting a little joke there. this is no joking matter president some point someog to die at one of these. >> it's important to point out, todd, that there's two sides. there's the far right protesters as well which is why the antifa antifascists are turning out. this incident is number 20, 25 in a litany of them over the past few years. and to your point, jed, it is the police spns which seemed like it wasn't enough. when you have these two sides, the far right protesters, antifa that are going to crash, that
3:05 am
puts the community at risk. da>> there's video out there of them attacking people on a bus with hammers. how many more videos -- there's a video of them chasing a young girl with her dad. don't take my word of it. look at the twitter feed, the minority reporter who got beat up and put in the hospital by antifa just a month ago. how is this not a domestic terror group. it's a violent aggressive group of thugs who travel in packs because they would never go out by themselves and' cost someone because they can't get real jobs. they're loser degenerate. >> we'll walk you through the rise of antifa, the black mass that's a black tactic,
3:06 am
historical reference, the term administration has taken out. conservative journalist was attacked. he'll be on the show later. this is why an issue that the administration is taking seriously. >> it's a debate of whether or not to declare this a terrorist organization. i give an enormous amount of credit to journalists who go on the ground, they know what they're getting into. andy kno noa neo was assaulted t back in. so i give them enormous credit. but it's sad, to dan crenshaw's point. if this is what protests are starting to look like in the united states of america i think we're in big trouble. and there needs to be universal condemnation on the right and the left, any acts of violence. that has no place in the united states. this is not protest. this is violence and
3:07 am
intimidation. >> you made a big point that applies here in the big apple, new york city. police officers here in the big apple are basically encouraged to not engage in situations where in previous administrations, they would be enl gauging. as a result that's led to acts of vai lens against police officers. just last night police officers, three of them in fact are hurt of a mob erupted in violence. this of course coming weeks after those dousing incidents where these officers were downed with water. we love the nypd. we have them outside our building. we see them around here all of the time. they do amazing work keeping this city safe and free from terror. but now they're getting a ridiculous horrible reaction, water, violence, people throwing things from on high buildings, taunting them. when these individuals, all they do is goo into these communities
3:08 am
to try to keep them safe. >> and you can't have police officers being afraid to do their job. they get so much criticism from the media oftentimes that my fear is in instances where they're going if and there are threats of violence that they're standing down more, retreating because they're so afraid of how they're going to be paipted in the media as being aggressive. that violence in these places like portland escalates way beyond where it should because the police are afraid of how they're going to be painted. >> that's the point. you said when it escalates. police aren't standing down. they're deescalating situations. they're trained. there's no police force in the country that's more skilled in taking the moment out. but at some point a line is crossed. we're certainly seeing that line when they're being attacked in vairs ways. it is hard for them to deescalate when they themselves
3:09 am
are a target. >> another story we're following involves education and school. a florida high school teacher is removed from his classroom after scolding students who don't stand for the pledge of allegiance. we've talked about the importance of the pledge of allegiance and the debate of whether it should be said in school or not. this is a part of the message that the teacher wrote on the board. you're extremely lucky to live in the usa. if you refuse to stand for the pledge of allegiance, are you revealing wisdom? you're displaying arrogance. mr. g. the question is should he have been removed for saying that. and it's highly debatable. because, you know, you have to obey the laws of the school and the district. they don't want teachers getting
3:10 am
political. the thing is schools allow teachers toe get political when it's a message they think is going to be received well and when they have a problem with teachers being political when it's a message like this. it's not a universal idea that teachers need to get political in school systems. >> it's not just public school systems. some of these children are going to be going to a liberal school and i know teachers that work at that school and they have been trained on how not to deal with this individual in certain circumstances. to your point, if this person was on the left side of the spectrum, would that same thing be happening? and admittedly these people i know are extremely liberal, believe in liberal causes but even they say this crossed the line. >> the principal of the high school, his statement appeared in the florida times says, i
3:11 am
believe classrooms provide the perfect place to have insightful and thought. provoking discussions about civil liberty. however this must be done in a productive, respectful way in accordance with law and school board policy. that was perceived by the principal tot no be done in a proper manner. >> i don't think he should have put the message on the board, i don't like teachers to get political at all. you work in the school, you have to respect the rules of the board and the district. this is a public school that we're talking about in this particular instance. but it has to be universally applied. that's forbid but when you walk in the classroom next door and you see hyper political talk geared towards the left. if you're going toaf the policy, you need to have it across the board. >> but as a teacher you've got to address what's happening in the world. students want to know. he was airing his thought to give them a perspective. >> if we know one thing about our audience, you like to talk about the pledge of allegiance,
3:12 am
e-mail us, >> we'd love to hear your thoughts. headlines for you now. the man accused of shooting six officers during the philadelphia standoff is charged with attempted murder. a judge denied maurice hill bail as he awaits his court hearing next month. he's accused of opening fire on police during an eight-hour standoff after officers tried serving so drug warrant at his home. the u.s. coast guard ramping up a search for two missing off-duty firefighters. brian mcclooney and justin walker never returned after a fishing trip in flod. florida. they were last seen here friday morning before going 30 miles offshore.

antifa turning violent once again in portland. these violent protests have been making headlines since the election. but the movement's roots trace back much farther. antifa began in the 1920s and '30s under nazi germany but it wasn't until the rise of modern antifa began in 1989. this is the battle of seattle, tens of thousands taking to the streets no seattle to oppose to world trade organization. there wasn't a political movement more than a national opposition to greed wealth corporations. but then you got to the occupy movement. do you remember that, occupy wall street in it was here in new york city. we saw that. and we saw the black block
3:18 am
tactic. they wear all black. don't want to be identified by the police. this is what they did in 1999 in the battle of seattle and what they did in occupy wall street. they were dormant and didn't have a target until the election of president donald trump. and that was january 2017. on the inauguration of president trump i was out in the streets reporting on what was ten thousand or so ante foo activists absolutely breaking windows, becoming violent, causing all sorts of problems. and they found their target, the antifascists claim they have no leader, they're just an organic sort of group that coalesced around president trump. and we saw several opposition protests by antifa against the new administration washington. but it spread out to the west coast. a far right activist at berkry
3:19 am
trying to speak. we saw the protests violent in california. again we saw a lack of police response initially. and unlike in washington, in california we saw the burning of the building there. and it certainly caught the nation's attention and there were several similar instances throughout 2018. but it wasn't until the -- in shatter lotsville it was the incident that killed heather hire that really fueled their opposition to this administration blaming the trump administration for the death as one of the far-right protesters ran over heather hire. but it wasn't until the conservative journalist attacked out of portland this june. you saw him being beaten up. you don't see any police in there. and we'll have andy noe coming on later. but it is these tactics of the
3:20 am
antifa that we saw yesterday. portland has become the ground zero for this movement. you see that there are no actual laws on the books to really prosecute these people, as was the case in washington. they have charged many of the january 20th protesters with conspiracy to riot. it did not stick. there wasn't a lot of prosecution. 13 were arrested yesterday in portland but we'll see if any are charged with domestic terrorism. that is why the president is calling in a tweet for possibly elevating antifa in these protests to domestic terrorism. jed? >> well i.c.e. is blasting a north carolina sheriff for ignoring detainers and releasing an immigrant accused of a horrible crime.

he's in i.c.e. custody two months after being released on bond. >> according to i.c.e. by releasing lease an alien, they o release a threat on to the streets of charlotte when he was free to harm others for two months until he recapture by i.c.e. >> tom homan, how does this continue to keep happening? >> mecklenburg county wants to be a sanctuary county. this sheriff made a choice to stop being a cop and to be a politician. this is a choice he made. we've got monies of sheriffs throughout the country that work with i.c.e. he refuse to do so. i wrote a few cases down. texas, people are arrested with assault with deadly weapon, numerous drug offenses, felony
3:26 am
possession of a gun, asawtion at with a deadly intent to murder. these are the people he's choosing to release. >> we have a statement from the police saying bonds are not set by the mecklenburg county sheriff's office. wwhen the person meets the condition of his bond by law, i'm supposed to allow him to leave. what do you make of that statement? >> he has a telephone. he has a telephone. pick up the phone and call i.c.e. look, if you -- let's say his lawyers say don't honor the detainer, we think there's a liability issue, whatever. you can pick up the phone and call i.c.e. before you release that person. that doesn't cost him anything. there's no liability there. i.c.e. will be there to pick him up. he's knowingly released a public safety threat back into the public. saying he's protecting immigrant communities. h's doing the exact opposite. these people will reoffend in the same community in which they live.
3:27 am
immigrant communities. he's putting the immigrant community at risk. we're going into the community to arrest him and we're probably going to find others. >> let me ask you about another story in washington, d.c. where we live, montgomery county, maryland, they actually really viescrewed up by not going after two illegal immigrants who raped an 11-year-old. tell me what happened there. >> again, he signed an executive order, wants to be a sanctuary jurisdiction too. thanks to fox news a lot of pressure has been put on him. here's two people that raped an 11-year-old girl. her life has been ruined. don't let him make bond and get out. turn him over to i.c.e. remove him from the country he's under violation of the law. what concerns me is that's not
3:28 am
enough. great for this case but you got to get rid of the sanctuary policies. it puts i.c.e. officers at risk of harn harm and the community t risk of harm. >> i.c.e. is publishing their denied detainer list because they are making the point that there's too many of these cases that exist out there putting the country at large in danger. >> one case is too many. and i can name case after case of people getting released by sanctuary jails to reoffend in the community, rape, murder, there are a lot of moms and dads who are victims. one is too many. let me be clear. most of the sheriff sheriffs ins country, the law enforcement officers, they'll work with i.c.e. honor the detainer or call us when they release them. this is choice of a sheriff to be a politician rather than be the top cop. this sheriff needs to take the badge off of his chest and put
3:29 am
it in his desk drawer. he stropped being a cop. >> do you think there will be a growing trend where the sheriffs stop cooperating with i.c.e.? i don't care what side of the political spectrum you're on, when you read the stories, they're outrage inducing. >> some of these sanctuary jurisdictions -- we're protecting communities. we want victims and witnesses to come forward and trust law enforcement. unless they arrest a victim or a witness and put them in the county jail, i.c.e. doesn't know they exist. we only want access to a jail where you already made the decision to take somebody's civil liberties away and lock them up because they're a safety risk or a flight risk. i.c.e. will never turn their back on a deputy sheriff. we're asking that they don't turn their back on us. let's make our community safer. work with i.c.e. we're the good guys.

territories on twitting saying she believes she's doing what is if the best interest of her family and the people. silencing me and treating me like a criminal is not what he wants from me. visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything i believe in, standing against racism and injustice. this trip has ignited a political firestorm here in washington. this weekend the president leading the charge that tlaib and omar are anti-semimitts and shouldn't be recognized by the netanyahu government. tlaib's uncle told fox news on friday the entire family stands by her and her decision. the fallout is still rippling across washington and the controversy has stirred up a lot of heated emotions over u.s.-israeli emotions and president trump's relationship
4:03 am
with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> and once again rashida tlaib was granted permission to go visit her grandmother. she requested that permission from the israeli government, granted that permission and then decided she was not going to go. i understand why the grandmother is upset. she wanted to see her granddaughter but that is ultimately her decision to not go. >> in fairness, congresswoman tlaib said the conditions that she had to agree to, to not speak about against israel which she's done frequently in the past were too much. that's why she's calling it oppressive. however her colleague, former representative who was speaking about tlaib, the firestorm, here's what she had to say. >> she's clearly not on the side of the israeli people. she has a right to disagree with
4:04 am
the government but they also have a right to keep her out. you can't have both. you can't sit there and say i'm going to support a group that boycotts you. i'm going to go against everything that you stand for and by the way you let me in when i want to get in. i mean, it's kind of being -- she's being a little bit of a baby here. be an adult. you either want to go to israel or you don't want to go to israel -- hang on a second. let mow finish. you either want to stand with bdf or you don't want to stand with bdf. make a choice here. they have a right to do it. i this i they were gracious in letting her in. >> she is not a colleague of hers, a former representative. there are 435 members. but the point is made and that is former representative love saying, listen, israel went out f their way to give you this humanitarian visa, you said you wanted it and yet a second time you decided not to go. you seemed to make this a political speck call.
4:05 am
>spectacle.>> there's a lot of e the democratic primary voters stand. are they siding with tlaib, representative omar and represent cortez or are they siding with the moderate wing of the party. michael moore has a strong opinion on this. a far left activist. notable guy. and he says that the squad will actually help democrats win in 2020. take a listen. >> let's hope that alexandria and rashida and ilhn are the face because that's how we're going to win. we are going to believe with people who believe that climate change is real. we're going to win by getting behind people who want to raise the minimum wage, fight for all of the things that the american public wants. that's the squad. they're the force out there. >> and you know what?
4:06 am
he may be right. >> what? >> i really don't know. i could sit here and say, oh, there's a whole segment of the country that supports, feels underrepresented, looking for a moderate, looking for someone with a moderate stance on issues. but if you look on social media, the people getting fired up right now, the democratic base are fired up by the likes of alexandria ocasio-cortez and if you listen to bal bill mar whene talks calling for a recession, the audience applauds. what i know is they want somebody that seems excited. we always want somebody to go into washington and dig their heels in on the issues. and for the democratic primary vetters that may be these individuals, their rhetoric is extreme and policies are extreme, that mi may be where te democratic party is. >> bill moore calls them by their first names.
4:07 am
not even their last name. but his point to your point, that is michael moore said from way back that you know, you're going to have to draw a very stark contrast to donald trump if you're going to succeed in challenging him. that's a little more of what he's say in terms of where the democratic party stands. >> i got to disagree with you. i go with any own experience living in an extremely democratic state with people who have been lifelong democrats, they are not fans to have squad. they do now espouse the virtues that they es spow. they're looking for kennedy values and barack obama democratic values. this is why we have elections. we will see. >> barack obama now a moderate. >> look at that. >> a p pelosi, they're all moderates now. >> to your point, todd, on immigration, particularly as the left -- we saw the debates where all of the sudden they want to give all of tim grants free health care. they're going to abolish i.c.e.,
4:08 am
decriminalize crossing the border which is against the law currently. we keep seeing evidence of terrible things happening. a north carolina sheriff is under fire after releasing a previously deported illegal immigrant accused of raping a child. this is that individual, oscar leonardo. you see him there. this is a quote i.c.e. on the capture of an illegal immigrant fugitive by releasing a previously deported alien facing serious criminal charges, mecklenburg county chose to release a safety threat on to the streets of charlotte where he was potentially freed to harm others until his capture by i.c.e. >> we had tom homan on the last hour. no one is a stronger supporter of i.c.e. and we asked him about this particular issue and the safety threats involved. take a listen. >> this sheriff made a conscious choice to stop being a cop.
4:09 am
this is the choice he made. we have hundreds of sheriffs throughout the country that work with i.c.e. he's knowingly released a safety threat into the public. he says he's protecting the immigrant communities wu he's doing the opposite. take the badge off of his chest, put anytime the desk drawer because he stopped being a cop. >> will there be a reversal on the part of the sheriffs who say we're not going to comply with i.c.e. and you hear a lot of these story which are horrific are front ant center top to donald trump's credit the fact that he made this immigration issue front ant certain for if first time in a long time, will the leaders say on some level we need to comply with i.c.e. on these issues because we can't have these people out in the community. >> one of the more fascinating stories of the week, remember when the "the new york times" used to be the paper of record. >> no.
4:10 am
>> and people, generations of conservatives -- you went to the "the new york times" to tbet youget yournews. the "the new york times" executive editor is going to prepare and sort of anticipate its coverage of the upcoming election, the trump administration. here is the exact quote from the "the new york times" executive editor, it reads as follows, it got treatment when the story went about whether the trump campaign colluded with russia. we built our newsroom to cover one story, specifically reverg to the russian collusion and we did it truly well. now we have to regroup and shift resources and to take on a different story. because the russian collusion didn't work out for them and the conch they wanted, they're going to find a new way to, let's be realistic, get trump. this is the "the new york times." >> i confess, talking about this
4:11 am
before and doing it again, i read the "the new york times" every day. they have some of the widest-reaching resources in news around the world. in this meeting that happened was sort of shifting -- they're going to shift to race, cover race issues rather than russian issues. however there are -- these are friends of mine that i've talked with that work there saying there is a shift. that's why they had the meeting. too many people see the "the new york times" being one-sided. one voice speaking out was former network news journalist cheryl atkinson saying the takeaway, the "the new york times" isn't mapping out a narrative in advance of naturally occurring events and plans to shape all natural occurring events so they're reported in the case of racism. this is what they believe their readers want. >> nothing is surprising to me. this is what's happening to news today when you talk about
4:12 am
journalism being dead and you have agenda driven news. regardless of what's happening and warrants coverage, they decide what they want viewer to think and feel and they orchestrate the news they cover around that. and that's sad. cheryl atkinson is a well-respected journa journalis. people on both sides of the aisle should speak out about this stuff. there has to be a space you go to for objective news. the man accused of a bomb scare in new york is arrested and charged with placing false bombs. larry given taken into custody after surveillance footage showed him with two pressure cookers in the subway station. former vice president dick cheney headlining a fundraiser in wyoming for president trump's reelection campaign. chaney will be joined by his daughter and key white house
4:13 am
advisers at tomorrow's luncheon. while he's supported the president he's also been critical of him on some issues. and this next story is incredible. a south dakota woman goes to the hospital thinking she has kidney stones and ends up having triplets. the woman had nod idea she was pregnant. doctors quickly realized she was having labor pains rushing here into an emergency c-section. the babies appear to be healthy and doing well. how does that happen? >> i was going to say the same thing. >> i have a baby in here and the symptoms are very clear to me. i don't know how that happens. >> that's crazy. >> i'm glad they're the healthyd doing well. a california business owner is forced to close up shop. now she has a message. >> this is for govern newsom. i want to tell you what happens when i get to work. i have to clean up the poop and

4:18 am
slater. welcome. do you think this was smart? i thought it was brilliant on her part to direct tight the governor. the question is, is the governor listening at all? this isn't the first complaint that we've seen with the impact of the homeless crisis in california fnl it's a great point. he's not listening. i feel so bad to this woman. most people don't know what it takes to run a business. it's hard enough. you have enough forces working against. thomas soul wrote a book called "vision to have anointed" and one of his points is progressives believe that criminals and homeless people are victims. so this is why in schirch we have ab109, prop 47 which puts criminals back on the street. in california you can steal up to $950 worth of stuff and you get a slap on the wrist. it's misdemeanor because criminals are victim. and the same with homeless people. that's why the progressives let
4:19 am
them live on the street. gavin newsom profoundly believes that so he won't listen to this woman even though his policies are making her actually the victim in this ideology, not the criminals and the homeless people. >> let's take a look at the numbers. in sacramento alone where this woman had her business close to 6,000 homeless people in sacramento county and throughout the state of california, look at this number, nearly 130,000 homeless people all of january 2018. if you saw emily's story yesterday, her and drew pinsky going out to skid row, you know it's bad. you talk about a false compassion when it comes to the homeless. what do you mean by that? >> she says, i care for them peas. we all do. we all want success for them. but progressives think they're being compassionate by letting people sleep on the street but
4:20 am
all you're allowing them to do is spiral deeper and darker if o their men call illness. this is mental illness and addiction. dr. drew makes this point all of the time. this is not a housing show. if you lower it to 400,000 dollars a house, no one in skid row is going to wake up and say good, i can provide for my family. letting people sleep on the street is not compassion. it's not helping these people. >> the hope is that gavin newsom will mak make up and take some ownership and leadership on this. it's important to know that "fox & friends" reach out to the governor's office for a statement. we have not heard from him. it's a good step for the business owners and residents to address their concerns to him directly. kay joes erupts as protests take to the street of pord lant. >> a journalist attacked by

it's my dream now to go into clean energy and whatever the next new fuel source is, that's where i want to be. i want to be on the front lines of implementation. a fox news alert. at least 13 protesters arrested in portland with antifa violence on full display. [bleep]. >> andy ngo a conservative journalist attacked by antifa earlier this summer. a long with a former antifa member. andy, back in june you were attacked and yet again we saw on the streets of portland more of the same violence. your thoughts? >> physical violence is routine now. yesterday was no exception.
4:25 am
it was a lot of fear of there being massive bloodshed. and in the end nobody was killed and apparently here that means it was a success. but what happened was that people were maced and beaten on ionthe streets, you had masses f demonstrators come out to confront physically a much smaller group of rating-wing protesters. and in the footage that you're playing, how they targeted people once they were separated from the group, for example, walking to their cars, they would mob them. some of them had weapons sphwhr and you see gabriel in the video that we were playing, that's a hammer breaking the glass. the mayor out in portland, mayor todd wheeler calling it a largely peaceful e went. event. looks like anything but. >> wheeler is on full on pr
4:26 am
mode. they had one goal to prevent violence and yet we saw it from antifa. this is exactly why we need to declare antifa a domestic terrorist organization. a city's entire police force was not enough to stop antifa. we have to be proactive, not reactive. >> when you say fighting against them, i want to ask you one more time, gabriel, when i was tracing the roots, back to the seattle in 1999, black cloth tactic cover yourself and now it's gotten the level where it's every weekend it seems like in portland there are violent protests. is it time, as president trump is calling for, to label the antifa a dismi domestic terrorit organization? >> i think labeling antifa a domestic terrorist organization is going to do two things puppet's going to deter people from joining.
4:27 am
and it's going to send a strong message to college professors who think it's okay to defend antifa. there was a professor a few weeks ago who wrote a piece claiming antifa is a form of self-defense. this is just ridiculous. we have to stop. >> andy, let me ask you. why did you go back? you went back to the streets of portland. we saw your video yesterday. yet you're willing to go back into the line of fire, if you will. >> i'm in portland and my reporting is ongoing. and for security reasons because i'm still getting ongoing threats i can't go into the specifics of where i was yesterday sphwhr and your thoughts, andy on the same thing gabriel was weighing in -- let me show you president trump's treat very quickly. here's what he says. we'll just put it up on the screen if we can, if we have time, where he says major
4:28 am
consideration being given to naming an fifa an organization of terror. portland is being watched closely. hopefully the mayor will be able to do his job properly. that's a reference to the fact that there's no law really with which to prosecute those who attacked you. you think it's time for one now. >> yeah, we're now over seven weeks since the beating and robbery. people can still come to these demonstrations wearing masks and bringing weapons. yesterday there should have been 100 arrests. in the end there was only 13. this was supposed to be the full show of force of the portland police and what i saw was police retreating quite frequently and then during those moments is when violence would break out and then they would respond. but they wouldn't take preemptive actions. >> gabriel, you had a great op-ed on about what
4:29 am
it means to be a member of an fifa. there are a a lot of young people out there that may be attracted to this antifascist moment movement. what the you say to thoseng people? >> what i would say sit's not. once you get into antifa, you realize how hateful and violent they are. you realize they're not standing for something. they're not fighting fascism. they're the real fascists. >> thank you very much for being out there and talking to us today. we should point out that it is also far-right wing protesters that do come and cause some of this to clash. thank you for being here today. >> thank you. next, remember our heroes of 9/11 honoring the nation's finest with america's 9/11 ride? the ride stops here on fox square. how you can help first responders coming up.

4:48 am
having problems, obviously comia is having its first downgrade in ten years. in america most consumers are like no, we're pretty good here. but when you're an economist looking two years ahead, there are things you need to get in front of him and this administration, the entire government -- i don't just mean political appointees. my position a having worked in the government. nobody wants to bring on a recession. they are natural. can happen. but there are things that the administration can do to save ie it off. >> trump's economic numbers have been good. do you think this recent turn of events with the markets, is that going to be the new talking point, so to speak? they're not going to be able to speak to unemployment number osar the impact of regulation own small businesses. those are been good. is this their new talking point? >> if it is it's a hard one to

griff took todd surfing, and it was something truly to behold. todd: something else. griff: indeed. we must get to news, and that is out of portland. again, protests turn violent. at least 13 were arrested. you see here, antifa breaking the window of a bus. those are far-right profirsts who have come out -- protesters who have come out, taking a hammer to smash that window, spraying what may have been bear spray, we're not sure exactly what that is, but the police confiscated multiple metal poles, bear spray and other things used in a violent situation in portland are. jedediah: my concern was watching this unfold, you see a hot of these video withs from people who were tweeting all night last night about being there and what was happening on the ground, and police presence
5:02 am
seemed to be very overwhelmed. in one video, showed them retreating. they had declared some level of a state of emergency in the area, but they were treated in many videos posted where you didn't see police presence at all. we all recognize that law enforcement was overwhelmed, but something needs to be done when these protests happen because you witnessed some of the violence against innocent civilians. this is madness that the right to protest in this country has been distorted into such extreme acts of violence that have become somewhat of a new not. todd: peaceful protests, such a hallmark of our nation. that said, the mayor of portland, he is saying it's not as bad as it could have been. nevertheless, we should not see stuff like this in the usa. griff: mayor wheeler was in the spotlight because the criticism was the police weren't there, reading thement transcript from
5:03 am
the police chief and the mayor yesterday, it turns out they had about 1200 cops out there. the problem is these videos where these far-right protesters, which under the first amendment last time i checked, whatever you are saying is protected, it is this one side that is going to attack it. and antifa, any antifa member will tell you they're not organized, they don't is have a leader, but they're out there to oppose fascists in any form they see, and they call this self-defensor right? because -- self-defense, right? because they're having to confront if fascism. it doesn't look like self-defense in this video, because they're attacking that bus. jedediah: we actually spoke with a foreman antifa member who set outright that they need to be stopped. talk a listen to what he had to say. >> once you get into antifa, you realize how hateful and violent they are.
5:04 am
they're not fighting fascism, they are the real fascists. a thousand officers in the streets of portland to prevent violence. they had one goal, and yet we still saw violence from antifa. honestly, this is exactly why we need to declare them a domestic terrorist organization because apparently, a city's entire police force with was not enough to stop antifa. griff: so proactive, what is proactive? the president saying he wants to deem antifa a domestic terror organization. we'll see if that goes anywhere. i will tell you, i spoke with a few people involved in the antifa movement. i i saw them organizing at the president's inauguration, january 20th, 2017, it was one of the first times we i saw it. but the problem is when the rise occurred under president trump, you have situations just like this, that man was attacked by antifa, and she's calling for
5:05 am
people to, please, step away. she's worried, and these were two people essentially trying to come out and get their first amendment rights, and yet one guy was hurt tremendously. andy kno, i mentioned we're very familiar with what he did. he was out there as well with. he wouldn't tell me what location he was n but he wants to keep covering it because simply nothing is changing. watch. >> we're now over seven weeks since the beating and robbery, and people can still come to these demonstrations wearing masks and bringing weapons. yesterday there should have been at least 100 arrests. in the end, there was only 13. there was a lot of fear of there being massive bloodshed, and innocent, nobody was killed and apparently here that means it was a success. but what happened was that people were maced and beaten on the street. jedediah: andy kno was attacked the himself in june, so very courageous of him to go back in
5:06 am
and cover this, and he makes a very important point about when you read stories about this and read 13 arrests, it sounds like a manageable situation. but his point about there should have been a lot more. if you looked at his twitter feed and that man on the ground with the woman who was standing, looks like his spouse, partner or friend, i'm not sure, standing above him, trying to get everyone to back off, that came directly from andy kno's account. journalists are going to social media to try to alert you to the real story of what's going on. a lot of times you're not getting the whole story, and kudos to people like andy for risking his own safety to do so. todd: you're probably wondering whyment aren't the police officers doing more, and i think it comes down to, one, a lack of respect for our officers in communities across the country, but two, sort of limits that are put on policing in so many big cities throughout the country
5:07 am
including right here in new york city. under the de blasio administration, it is noted that many officers we speak with, we hear from them, feel like they have their hands tied. it creates a lack of respect that is demonstrated in these communities. just last night three new york city police officers were under attack in a part of this city. things such as having objects thrown at them from on high. there were reports that these officers were fired upon, all as part of a mob violence situation that, if you recall, happens just weeks after some officers in our city were doused with water. it's just part of a pattern that we see over and over and over again that, quite frankly, didn't exist just a few short years ago. griff: and, you know, these are just local reports. you mentioned being fired on. we don't know yet, but with we're trying to find out, because the what is happening is the line that you'd evers cross from the water dousing to what you're seeing here has continued to escalate. when police trained to
5:08 am
deescalate situations are sort of stuck, unable to respond, we don't know where it's going, but if there were shots fired -- we're looking into that -- that would certainly be a very, very troubling development to see this kind of escalation. it's not acceptable to throw the water, it's absolutely unacceptable to allow any city to be fired on. jedediah: law enforcement has to be able to do its job and, unfortunately, they can't be concerned about public scrutiny and scrutiny in the media, and when you read stories, they take a lot of criticism, so they're almost afraid to do their job. i hope that's not a reason for retreat in some areas, because really you need nothing more than law enforcement to be present. imagine those citizens nearby that are even just walking around in nearby areas. this is a terrifying thing when you look at some of these videos. another story that we're following very closely is related to schools and education. we talk a lot about that and whether there's political bias coming through in schools and what that looks like, the pledge
5:09 am
of allegiance and whether or not that should be part of school policy. a florida high school teacher is removed from his classroom after scolding students who don't stand for the pledge of allegiance. this is the portion of a message on a white board. quote: my point, you are all extremely lucky to be living in the usa. if you refuse to stand during the pledge of allegiance or national anthem, are you revealing your maturity and wisdom? absolutely, you are revealing the opposite. mr. g.. the question, of course, should he have written this on the board, should he have not, and is this getting too political on the other side? we see a lot of teachers getting political on the left, is this a statement coming from someone that has a different mindset that he should also keep to himself? that is the question. todd: fact of the matter is soldiers that fought for our freedom fought for the right to either say the pledge or not say the pledge, say the -- sing the national anthem, not sing the
5:10 am
national anthem. nevertheless, the fact that we're having this discussion is sad. griff: well, and we have a statement, by the way, from the principal. this is in the florida times. he says: i believe classrooms provide the perfect place to have insightful and thought-provoking discussions. however, this must be done in a productive and respectful way and in accordance with law and school board policy. jed, you were a teacher. jedediah: i was an academic dean, and that is true. this is a public school that we're talking about the here, there is a school board policy you have to obey. he may have been in defiance of that. the problem is that a lot of schools who are very left-leaning only enforce these types of things when the opinion is different from the one that they want to espouse. in other words, if it were a left-wing talking point or some sort of revisionist history on a white board, it would be okay. you have to apply the rules across the board to everyone and not be selective. we did ask you your opinion.
5:11 am
we got an e-mail from paul: the pledge of allegiance is not a matter of politics, it's a matter of patriotism. todd: brian e-mails i am a middle school teacher, if i see a student the not stand, i speak to him or her after class and remind the student about what that flag stands for. griff: and ann says: there's nothing political about teaching alean jas -- allegiance to be this country. unfortunately, ann, i'm afraid it has become right or left, and that's why we're talking about stories like this today. jedediah: it's amazing. what's sad is that it's a divisive issue. beginning with a fox news alert, claiming responsibility for a blast that left 63 people dead and 182 others injured overnight in afghanistan. a bomb exploding inside a hall packed with more than a thousand wedding guests including children. it's the deadliest attack in afghanistan's capital city this year.

5:18 am
trail except for fundraisers like the one he did here in massachusetts yesterday. so this is an opportunity for her or to go and get some publicity. bernie sanders will also be there, and i assume that he will also be trying to outbid her for the giving away free stuff. i mean, that's what all these events basically boil down to. i would think there will be a pro forma apology of sorts, but she probably will have of a native american congresswoman from new hampshire who's endorsed her to serve as a shield. griff, i think -- griff: i was at the president's rally on thursday, you're there. the difference between warren and biden is she's not just inching. in our latest fox news poll, she jumped 20% over sanders' 10%, and that's a real rise. biden was always going to be on top of the pack because of his name recognition, but warren seems to be doing something.

massachusetts, she said -- went down to new orleans and said the justice system in the u.s. is racist front to back. and this is not a good look for someone who wants to run a national campaign. and i think it's, anything is better to be talking about than what he said about the cops. griff: and so do you think -- we're almost out of time the, howie, but do you think it will be allegations of hypocrisy that will hurt her most in the long run? >> well, she says america has mistreated native americans. what worse form of mistreatment is there than to check the box when you're a caucasian? she claims she's been cleared, but no one really buys she didn't use her heritage to get ahead. griff: long way to go, 15 months until the election. thank you, sir. all right, google employees pressuring the company to cut ties with i.c.e. a foreman engineer who claims he was fired for his conservative

5:48 am

5:54 am
their own household. jedediah: here's the thing i don't understand though, young people typically -- especially when you're talking about college-age, mid 20s, they don't like being told what to do. i've been a teacher, they want to do their own thing, get out this in society and make their mark. do they not realize that a lot of these programs, that is government coming in and dictating to you what your health care's going to look like, etc. so why is that appealing? i feel like they should be rebelling against this. >> well, because, you know, young people -- these are old, recycled ideas, but we haven't been around that long. 90% of people are covered under our present health care system, so instead of these nominees focusing on how we're going to cover the last 10%, we're trying to reinvent the wheel. people can see their own life experience but get to conclusion that more government is not the solution. the philosophy that government actually makes things worse. let's talk about education there for a second, right? blank check for student loans.
5:55 am
what has that done? it's increased the price of colleges and universities. and they're not giving us the skills we need anyway with very little accountability. a blank check from the federal government and very little accountability. do we want to do that to health care and housing in more money and more government isn't always the solution. it sounds great, but in the end the people who pay for it, you're looking at them right here. r jed so let's say you were running for president and you were going to make an a argument for capitalism, how how would yo that? >> the prime minister of denmark came out and said denmark is not a socialist country, okay? what i would tell millennials is we understand your plight. i lived it. i mean, you lived it. everyone, being young is difficult can. and it was especially difficult coming of age during the recession. but these promises that a lot of nominees are offering are not the solution. the market is a much more effective mechanism of delivering goods and services, okay? government is never going to fill that role.

6:01 am
using each a hammer to break the glass, spraying something in there. there were metal poles confiscated, bear spray confiscated. on the bus are far-right protesters. it is the clash of these two sides that we've seen time and time again, but now it is fairly safe to say portland has become ground zero. this is at least the second major event that's happened in two months. jedediah: we've seen a lot of these videos unfolding particularly on social media with journalists on the ground who have felt the need to cover it because a lot of the media narration of these stories hasn't been quite as accurate as they'd like it to be. police having to retreat in certain areas, maybe perhaps they've been overwhelmed. but this is a growing problem where protests have been distorted in our country. now this violence that you're seeing has become all too common, in my opinion and in the opinion of many, and it becomes really concerning to people in positions of political leadership and law enforcement in those cities around the
6:02 am
country. todd: leads to question of how did we get here. take it from here. griff: let me hoe you, so i've covered antifa since the inauguration, but if you talk to leaders -- even though they say they don't have leaders, there are organizers -- they point to 1999 and the battle for seattle was the beginning of the rise of modern antifa. it was several thousand protesters turning out, protesting the wto. it wasn't political against the u.s. administration, it was a world wild against capitalism itself, and we saw the people in black masks. that's called black block tactic. it dates back to the '20s and '30s opposing germany. the next time we'd see it in america was really 2011-2012 during the occupy wall street movement. again, against the capitalism, against what they perceived as greed. there were violence, there was a lot of burning and breaking of things. but it wasn't until the election
6:03 am
of president donald j. trump, inauguration day, j-20 as antitwo refers to it -- antifa refers to it as the president was being inaugurated. there was a lot of violence. i was there trying to cover it for this channel. there was over 200 arrested there. that is really finally antifa, the movement, had their man, they had something they could protest. they told me in that day they would never stop protesting, and they were right. again, once back on the west coast in berkeley, milo ya p knop loss was trying to give a speech, that was actuallily a scene where you were seeing campus buildings burning, a lot of people got hurt. and antifa particularly looks to charlottesville. who can forget that incident? that is when heather heyer, one of the members of the antifa side, was can killed by a far-right protester driving a
6:04 am
car. that being a prosecution underway. but then you get to what we've been talking about, and that is conservative journalist andy kno attacked in june. he was out there trying to cover it, and you see no police presence around andy, getting absolutely beaten up. he was out there yesterday in portland as well trying to record it, posting videos, reminiscent of what we saw two months ago. and andy kno has something to say about what happened yesterday compared to what he had two months ago, and that is it's just not stopping. listen. >> yesterday there should have been at least a hundred arrests. in the end, there was only 13. you know, this was supposed to be the full show of force of the portland police x what i saw was police retreating, and during those moments is when violence breaks out. and then they would respond, but they wouldn't take preemptive action. griff: the point is they're not
6:05 am
going to stop. jedediah: yeah. and also an excellent point when he said there should have been a hundred arrests. when you see 13, many people say, oh, it's not that bad. if you look at these videos, there are so many instances of horrific violation where police are not present just because they can't be everywhere all the time. so i kudos to journalists like andy kno for putting this information out there. and, honestly, taking his own safety into his own hands to get this story right because he is so passionate about needing to take on antifa. griff: that rise we just tried to show you is why the president is starting to raise the conversation about whether or not it's time to designate antifa as a domestic terrorist organization. todd: this has been a major topic all week long. congressman a shield data look's grandmother about president trump. jedediah: the 90-year-old speak out after a her granddaughter decided not to visit israel after all. griff: gillian turner with more.
6:06 am
>> reporter: good morning. speaking out from her home in the israeli-occupied west bank, the grandmother of freshman democratic congresswoman rashida tlaib says she's disappointed she won't be seeing her granddaughter. trump tells me i should be happy she's not coming, may god ruin him. she explained she's doing what she believes is in the best interests of her family and the palestinian people. she writes: silencing me and treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. it would kill a piece of me. i've decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything i bereave in, fighting against racism, oppression if injustice. now this tweet prompting response from the president who wrote: rep tlaib desperately
6:07 am
wanted to visit her grandmother. a complete setup. the only real winner here is tlaib's grandmother. she doesn't have to see her now. well, the congresswoman's uncle told fox news friday the entire family stands by her and her decision not to travel. though this trip is now officially off, fallout here still rippling across washington this weekend, and the controversy that this has stirred up over u.s./israel relations wells the president trump's relationship with prime minister netanyahu, this is far from over. todd: gillian turner live for us in washington this morning. when you think of rashida tlaib, ilhan omar, you think of, of course, the squad, the four congresswomen, newly-elected most of them, in fact. and i find a lot of times when critics attack the squad, they attack them as being the new face of the democratic party with a negative connotation attached. well, one democrat who is not attaching that negative
6:08 am
connotation is michael moore. he says those folks, those four congressmen, the squad, that's how the democrats are going to win in 2020. take a listen. >> let's hope that alexandria and rashida and ilhan and congresswoman presley are the face, because that's how we're going to win. we're going to win with people who believe that climate change is real, we're going to win by getting behind people who want to raise the minimum wage. we're going to fight for all these things that the american public wants. that's the squad. they're the force out there. todd: we disagree. i say the individuals that i know that are democrats, they don't espouse that view, they're definitely more middle of the road, and they are not members -- they're not all in on the squad. you disagree. jedediah: well, yeah. his implication that the likes of joe biden don't believe in climate change, minimum wage,
6:09 am
that wouldn't be accurate either. i do think that there is an appetite in the country among democratic primary voters for that kind of vigor, that kind of, i would label it extreme theism. maybe they wouldn't, but that you see from the ilhan omars and the alexandria ocasio-cortez's and the rashida tlaib's. i wonder how powerful that segment is. i know the big donors really like joe biden, but when it comes to people who would actually be inspired to get out and vote, those grassroots activists, i really think they're going to be pulled out by the likes of an extreme candidate who will draw a stark contrast between themselves and president trump. i think michael me might be on to -- michael moore might be on to something here. griff: remember, congress is in recess. a little bit of what michael mere's talking about is because these three freshmen have been able to stir the debate within an operating congress. not just out in a speech in iowa
6:10 am
or new hampshire or at a rally elsewhere. this is happening within the con fines of our operating government. so whether or not people are choosing to ascribe to it is what we're seeing. so when this comes back, undoubtedly rashida tlaib and the squad have not finished talking about this. they'll be back -- todd: so you don't think this is part of a squad twitter echo chamber? you think this is something bigger? jedediah: i don't. one thing is for sure though, the climate right now is extremely polar eyes, and i think people really, really like it that way -- polarized. they want the extremism on the left. one act we've been talking about when it comes to that polarization of the country is the television and film industry. one hot topic is that movie, "the hunt." we've addressed it many times. aye not seen the whole film, i did see the trailer. it features liberal elites apparently kidnapping deplorables from red states. there was a lot of backlash saying this was inappropriate.
6:11 am
hollywood came out and said, you know what? we're going to pull the film. well, now some are saying that it could still hit theaters according to the movie's producer. check out this headline, jason bloom still wants to release "the hunt." 9 and, obviously, this has been a hot topic debate because some are saying, well, this is the film industry the, you can't censor them. there's going to be a floodgate that opens. others are saying it's just not a good time right now. griff: you know, the old saying is give the people what they want, and we were discussing earlier it seems that while there is a controversy here when you look back at movies that have gotten this sort of note rye sixer ultimately, viewers have said they want to see it. so that is why we may end up seeing it. in fact, one of our viewers e-mailing us, let the market dictate the fate of this movie. j jed good for you, john.
6:12 am
todd: try to imagine the outrage if this movie was reversed with conservatives hunting liberals. jedediah: the hunt is in very poor taste and further fuels the divide between republicans and democrats. so -- and those are all very good points, and i think they express the polarization even on this issue. i may not like the topic, but i think that first point about the free market, guess what? you can exercise the right to hate that film by not paying to bo go see it. we're going to turn to some headlines. at least one nypd officer injured after violation breaks out in a new york housing project. that officer was treated and released. there have been reports that people threw objects at police while yelling at them from rooftops. eleven people were arrested for disorderly conduct, unclear what sparked the attack. a man accused of sparking a bomb scare in new york is arrested and charges with placing false bombs.

6:36 am

6:37 am
and your relationship with dale has really been what's been most compelling about this whole story. talk to us about the highest of highs and the lowest of lows of that. >> when i was racing through all those losses, dale earnhardt always told me if you were in one of my if cars, you'd win. and i'm like, all right, let me drive one of your cars then! [laughter] getting that opportunity, it was just the chance of a lifetime for me. and to be able to get on that racetrack in the biggest race, the daytona 500, and do what dale told me we were going to do, and i don't think anybody else in that garage area really believed in me like he did. and to be in that position and know that the three of us were doing just what he said we were going to do, it was heaven. i mean, i was so excited and so ecstatic about getting that big hug in victory lane. that's the one thing i wanted more than the trophy, was dale to come into victory lane, hug me and said, i told you you'd win -- griff: michael, i've got to ask you, the tragic plane crash,
6:38 am
fortunately, everyone's alive. have you spoken with the family, and what went through your mind? >> just this -- i was scared to death. i was so afraid that, you know, they wouldn't get out -- i saw the video, it was just unbelievable that they were able to get out. you know, i texted with dale's sister kelly, and she says thairs doing okay physically. but i'm just thinking mentally it's got to be a tough time, so i think it's important to give them some space and let them sort through their emotions about what happened. holy cow, just so thankful that they are out and safe and are dealing with it now emotionally instead of physically. todd: it's an amazing story, can't wait to see the documentary. think of how many lives dale earnhardt sr. saved with that horrible tragedy when it comes to hans device which has saved so many more drivers. i did a story, i had to put on a device, it's perpetuating so many areas of motor sports, it's unbelievable. >> since that tragic day when dale passed, we haven't lost

6:46 am
jedediah: well, 2020 democrats this weekend making their case to young african-american voters, but a new headline claims they're struggling to reach african-american millennials. so should they be concerned? here to debate is brandon tatum and and democratic strategist kevin chevas. welcome to show. brandon, i want to start with you. do you think that democratic candidates in the first place should be speaking to african-american voters separately, or should they be speaking to voters in general talking about how the economy, how they can better the economy, the educational system and various other issues without playing these identity politics? >> well, i think the democratic platform is playing identity politics, so they're going to have to specifically speak to the issues in the black community. the bad issues and things that have gone wrong that thaw caused. i -- that they caused. if you look at any other statistic or spectrum of the things that african-americans are dealing with, it's per
6:47 am
perpetuated by democratic policies. we were both democrats at one point in time, and we woke up and realized they have nothing to offer the black community, have done nothing for black people, and it's time to look in a different direction. jedediah: kevin; what do you say to that, that these piles put forth by -- policies put forth by democrats have done nothing, and if you really want to help that community, you need to talk about school choice, less regulation ares to promote businesses, small business development, you need to talk about low taxes and keeping more of your hard earned cash. that's not what democrats are talking about. >> first, i would say one thing that conservatives like to point out is how the unemployment rate has dropped, but it was steadily dropping under barack obama. he set the stage for the economy e that we're enjoying now. and the fact of the matter is, yes with, millennial black voters are not as hitched to the democratic party, they're not going to vote for whoever has a d to their name, but they're
6:48 am
certainly not switching to republican. only 6% of black voters under the age of 36 are republican. so we know donald trump got, i believe, 8% of the black vote in 2016. it'd be a miracle if he reaches that again given the way he uses twitter and the way he attacks people of color. those things matter from our elected officials, and i just don't see him getting that much. it'll probably drop a little bit. but certainly, democrats can't take the black vote for granted, and we are seeing young people start to say maybe we should venture out is and rook at other parties -- look at other parties. jedediah: brandon, final word, we don't have much time here, but i don't know that people around the country are looking at twitter. i think they're looking at the impact of policies on their daily lives and if they have more money in their pocket and if they have opportunities that they didn't have before, that's going to determine who they vote for, is it not? >> that's exactly true. they're looking at the impact in
6:49 am
their own lives. look at the education system. young people in america, half the black community aren't even proficient in reading because of some of these policies. i'm not a proponent of saying go run to donald trump, the republican party. i tell people to look at what's going on in your community, who's more effective and efficient in helping you, and the democrats have nothing to offer. so look to other side, look at other people, look at other candidates. i, obviously, chose president trump -- jedediah: okay. we've got to wrap, guys. thanks for being here. remains to be seen who will be successful, but we'll talk more soon. nascar legend michael waltrip just told us about his new documentary. up next, we have a live performance of the title track with some music legends. ♪ -oh, n-no. -look, [sighs] i get it. some new guy comes in helping your mom bundle and save with progressive,
