♪ we'll never get older... arty: go be amazing! amazing! announcer: give your cardboard box another life. >> lou: good evening, everybody. president trump focusing on those who voted for & economic and terrorism and legislation. and the president addressed all of those issues with rational reform of our immigration system. the two senators want it based on merit and skills instead of family connections. >> it great to be here and
unveil legislation that celebrate reform to our immigration system. i campaigned on a merit based immigration system that protects u.s. workers and taxpayers. and that's why we are here today, merit- based. >> lou: they look to slash the number of green hards from a million to 500000 a year and eliminate the visa lottery system and limit the current refugee status to 50,000. the left wing national reacted with hysteria. and that led to a cop frontation. >> the yfd -- notion much having
to learn english. >> i am shocked that only people from england and australia know english. that is a shocking degree. this is an amazing moment. this is an amazing moment that you think that people only from great britain and australia is insulting to the hard working immigrants. jim, have you honesty ever met an immigrant who speaks english out of great britain and australia. >> and that is not what you said and it shows your cosmopolitan bias. >> you are trying to engineer an ethnic flow. >> that is outrageous and for you that is really, really, the notion that you think that it is
a racist bill is so wrong and so insulting. the realty is the foreign born population has quad rupled by 1970. and this bill, allows for immediate nuclear family members to come in the country much as today and additional points based system. >> lou: joining me to discuss the contention to the white house briefing room. and the president in the middle of the american worker, edrollins who was in the house republican leadership and rnc national committee man and randy evans. good to have you both here. i have seen very few examples of the white house briefing bresz
and of a journalist. some might quibble with the expression. and a journalist that was tutored by stef ep miller. >> he is a true believe are. >> a world class mind he demonstrated as well. >> and a world class debater. whether you want to have him in the pressroom i don't know. he is believe strongly. and it is it very, very critical. it is it a strong first step and to the certain extent it is the beginning of a long and important te bait. >> i completely agree. it is about time in the white house briefing room we have someone confront and take on an
absurd statement and tackle and dismantled it piece by piece to point out who is expressing racism and ethnic bias as the policy of the president. it caught them off guard and shows what a difference it makes if we have effective people in the xhupgz's room. >> here is the president of the united states. and cotton and perdue. putting forward a plan for merit based immigration in this country and the preassumption of that reporter. he didn't understand the statue of liberty and can't quote it and wants to hold it up for a temp late of a policy.
sarah sanders deserves all of the credit. there was a time that rom was filled with the best journalist working in this craft. >> that was probably in the reagan days, too. the issue here is that it is what the president promised. he has done an extraordinary job of freezing the illegals coming across the board and are he has a serious discussion of who have will be here. my grandparents were irish immigrants and came to work. and italians and everyone else came to work. and so you can't come here for welfare. you have to learn the language and professional skill is it important. > lou: there is a disconnect with the national left wing media and the truth. when they say straight out we are a racist country and stef ep
miller points out. the number of form born has quad ruptled. and we are talking about no two countries can come cloes to us in our immigration policy. >> history and facts don't matter to the left wing media. it was the optices of senator cotton from louisiana and senator perdue in georgia. they are doing the bill because it is it the right thing to do. they made it clear.
>> lou: louisiana would be flattered by adding senator cotton to their dell gaegz. attach is it arkansas. >> the fact two states with heavy agricultural influence. and standing with the president saying this is best for america. >> best for sxheshg what the administration is putting forward. the middle-class of the country. and those who aspire and work hard day in and out to be a part president middle-class. those are the people where the american dream resuddenlies and for whom. it is it a foundation in this country. snsh >> we are not eliminating the american dream. >> no, no. you misunderstood. >> i am saying they said it not
you. >> i see. >> and it is a reflection to the president's idea. we don't judge based on ethnicity or country or gender or race is, it is based on the idea of working hard and learn english and impose our values tis those issues that unite us and willingness to fight and be great again. >> lou: this special is besieged by a special counsel thanks to speaker ryan and mitch mcconnell and the establishment of the republican party and the democrats and the deep state. he is confronting this assault every day. and now, mueller comes with another attorney. just happens to be the 16th as he expands the if counsel after achieving and finding nothing.
and brings in an obama department of justice official. >> he has the month of tuing finish the white house restaffing and make a determination and what he will do with the justice and move forward. television is a restart and very important he comes after labor day and come back with the agenda. >> for whom? >> for the president. >> lou: a restart for the speaker of the house and senate. and get off of the the tail and end the relationship with the k- state and billionaire donor class and support the president and shove it up the nose of those who would like to subvert the will of the people and replace this president. >> the appointment of the special counsel does not limit the congress over sight to make sure he sticks to the job that
he was appointed. he is it creating a shattedo government and justice department with the sole aim of derailing the president who has record economic growth and enthusiasm up. they go to the lawyers and it is your point, lou, you know, somehow, it is always the lawyers. but you're one lawyer. >> lou: he's one of the leading lawyers. >> hear what he said while you are not on camera. >> you are right about mueller. i hear lindsay graham if you were to fire mueller or take action against sessioning. >> tell me why anyone in this country listens to anything that lindsay graham has done? he's been at the public troph
his entire life. if congress will not watch the oversight. who will until they are chairing and doing what mike warner is doing. it is pathetic what we are watching. >> and it is important but the president is moving forward and most important thing tax deal has to get done. >> lou: so long there is a special counsel that is committed to the destruction of the presidency, everything else is a side-bar. action has to be taken by the republican party and republican parties or hell will be to pay. we'll be right back. there is a lot more to cover tonight, stay with us. >> the left wing national media
refuses to cover hillary clinton and deep state's trail of destruction. >> media would rather focus on russia and nonsense stories than real news and that is a sad thing. >> gregg jarret said it is time for a second special counsel. >> and four icbm ste this lovely lady has a typical airline credit card. so she only earns double miles on purchases she makes from that airline. what'd you earn double miles on, please? ugh. that's unfortunate. there's a better option. the capital one venture card. with venture, you earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, everywhere, every day. not just airline purchases. seems like a no-brainer.

twitter and social media the world. my next guest is joining me to talk about clinton collusion. gregg jarret. great to have you here. starting with the special counsel for dems only. >> yes tis it, it is embarrassing, really. it is it such a partis an parade and absurd charade really that all fairness and imparty is tossed out of the door and now a mantra, let's get trump. the law agains. and if anyone questioned the impartility of robert mueller. >> congress and the president were slow to react. are you kidding me, this guy can't serve. look at the statute.
he can't serve if he has a personal relationship with someone involved in the case and that is james comey. they have a close long- term relationship as allies. >> remember i remember your column. it is it on its face. these conflicts. they are present and they are right there for all to see. why has there been no refraction the republican and not from the a ban or anyone. >> because they are lacking foresight and now it has attention of the house judiciary committee who is reading my columns and he came out publicly and said robert mueller must step down. and you know, i don't argue that there should be a special
counsel. i agree that robert mueller is the wrong person. >> lou: if you can't up with an ounce of evidence what are you doing. >> the fbi is investigating over a year and so far no evidence. >> lou: what point does reason prevail and these swamp wiseems in congress say enough. >> they should and maybe they will, finally. there ought to be a special prosecutor however to investigate hillary clinton and james comey and samantha power and the list goes on and on. and the judary committee and demanding there will be a special prosecutor to go after hillary clinton. >> they are saying it because of all of the evidence. >> lou: you don't need it for the special counsel. >> evidence and the law and they intersect when it comes to hillary and it would not be
difficult for a reasonable prosecutor to bring a case against hillary clinton. and remember james comey laid out a meticulous case of saying she violated the espionnage case. and said no reasonable prosecutor would bring a case. and >> lou: you know they say don't bother hillary it is it over and in the rearview mirror. i say no, this is it for forefront of the republican party. it should be right in their cross hair and they should be looking out of the windshield of hillary clinton to investigate. >> the washington post said it would be unheard of and astounding for a former political rival investigated and
prosecuted. really? by that reasoning i can rob a bank tomorrow and announce my president see for the united states, and upon losing, i get a free get out of jail free card. i am calling the hillary exclusion. it is new concept. >> or the jarret loop hole. gregg, thank you for being with us. next, the pentagon inspector general warns about a government program recruiting immigrants to our armed forces. stay with us. ♪or mouth breathe. allergies? stuffy nose? can't sleep? take that. a breathe right nasal strip instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than allergy medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight, mouthbreathers. breathe right.

signings of the bill. and great to have you here, general. and choosing a great, it seems peculliar way to express concern and calling it a trade war tis nothing of the sort for the united states. >> no, not at all. what the trump administration has done indeed is change the united states from united states and russia as accommodation is what obama was doing when theyanexed crimea and ukraine and management interaction and bomb being the syria moderates. and this is a policy of confrontation base would on very good evidence in terms of what russia up to obviously to inclutted iran and north cooer core as well. >> lou: as we look
at what is going on with north core xoer and their testing icbm. and nuclear witnesses. look like it will end well f. refer north korea made the decision of having to have missiles to deter the united states of frying to conduct a reyeem change in north era. >> it that they would have a te terent. and another calculation are saying that any preemptive attack or military action taken by the an act of war and they
would relax dappage they have on. they believe that check mapts the united states and the united states will accept nuclear tipped icbm. the problem is, they are dealing with trump administration that is different from the predecessor. >> lou: at some point, it has to be become public and in the area of mutually insured destruction. it seems to me at least, incumbent on us to say that what bullpen there his to be the some way to top it. >> putting any u.s.ing in harm's way.
>> pi glae with that assess: the trump administration is still working with china and put sanctions on china considerably more than in the past. and thement increase the legislation and they have to put it on fast forward. the clock is running out as we had frustrated he cans and how long north korea is to a icbm. ning about, the leaks and yet the policy followed by the muhammed administration and first six months. and then next year an icbm capable of delivering a north korea war head to a u.s. target is troubling. everything that the american
people were told that it was far more, or broader and alonger horizon. >> several years and in most cases and others 2 or 3 years. and told next year if we accept the credibility of the media biassed on a leaking source. i can't shed light on that because i talk classified information with kidnap in the government and that's the way it should be. >> lou: i will take your assessment every time, general. and when you hold forth, you bring intelligence to the kfrlgz no matter what. we appreciate it as always. thank you, general. >> good tucking to y --.

>> joining us, is charlie heard. good to see you. >> lou: i am great and i love the optimism of the president taking up tax reform today. house and senate takes a five week recess and they tried to said they achieved system. they don't have guts. if i talked about it with a congressman santos. why don't you kick in the door and why are you putting up with the dam fools? it is it incredible. the republicans on capitol hill don't get trump or his messam and perseverance that we see from him today.
when you think about everything being thrown at this guy no politician would still be standing. and the guy is still pushing forward and i think he's embarking on what i would say more important than any kind of health care reform. and you know dealing with taxes and something he knows about and republicans better get on board with him with this. >> they better. but until they are willing to throw ryan and mcconnell out. probably not much is going to be done. they are bought and paid for by k- street and the republican establishment. >> i don't understand their long game in terms of not repealing obamacare for so many years and the real scandal when they voted to repeal when president obama
would veto and they never had a plan. >> lou: they are phonies and frauds and why in the world they are not held accountable by the party. >> i don't know that they aren't. we have yet to see what will happen. i would not be surprised if something bad does not happen to them. >> nothing would excite me more than mcconnell and will ryan and the other accomplices in leadership would be held accountability. i don't think the republican party can wait. somebody needs to get nem energized and get them out. >> absolutely. i wrote my colume for the washington times for tomorrow. i think donald trump ought to do is issue an executive order
tomorrow rescinding all of the loop holes that congress and so many staff get to enjoy that exempts them from so many assects of obamacare>> lou: that's what he threatened. >> that would get them back quickly. >> lou: john kelly, how hope. are you that he will have discipline and shut down the leaks? >> i am hopeful about it and here's why. he brings the marine discipline and also sort of an outsider and sees it as how we get it done and has the same mind set as donald trump himself. not an establishment guy and he
knows how to get things done and i think that will benefit the president enormously. >> lou: charlie, great to have you here. speaker paul ryan claims to be all about the border wall and you will not believe this guy. we'll take it up with molly experience advanced safety technology at the lexus golden opportunity sales event before it ends. choose from the is turbo, es 350 or nx turbo for $299 a month for 36 months if you lease now. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. bburning of diabetic nerve pain these feet... jumped into city life as a kid... ...and kept my town moving. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing,

lou should house republicans return and investigate clinton collusion from russia. and 70 percent said congress should have a shorter vacation and get to work on the clinton collusion investigation. house speaker paul ryan showing support for the border wall. let me shock you and hear me out. he's identifying himself with a border wall with a bizarre 30 minute video filled with technomusic. ♪ i help the opportunity to travel down to texas and go to the rio grande valley and spend time with the border patrol and you see what they are up against it gives you greater report on what they do.
they need more tools and support to get it their job done. that's why we will get it done. lou that is wonderful. joining me. molly hemmingway senior editor of the federalist. molly, why is that man thinking? >> well, he's getting a message out to support president trump's agenda, you get mad when he's not supportive enough. >> lou: i will get mad at him as long as he leads in point and the persecution of the president and subvert his presidency. i will not be feeling amused. >> in this case he emphasized what the house did in terms of supporting the vote for the wall and the other too manies
cracking down. >> lou: why didn't they appropriate it. >> i think people think that there is no cooperation in the hill and president. immigration is popular with a huge subset of republican voters and they are anxious to see action taken and paul ryan supports that. >> lou: i have a question, did he decide that thumbs up was a identifying with president trump. and sitting on a horse. he can't even ride the damn thing. are you ridding me? >> i thought he rode the house well. hugh lou i will take your judgment over mine. it was awful riding if you want to know the truth. nick, your thoughts. >> well, paul ryan has a new
name. paul hollywood rhine. boats and riders and technomusic and helicopters. thumbs up of paul ryan being something he's not. he's finally supporting the president. i am on the same page with you. and this way of his dismaying, i will take it. >> lou: i have a real problem with a man coming late to the game. he couldn't support and sneaks out a 30 day video and grandizing him in ape technothriller on horse back and helicopters and whooe hey does the x 90 program. he didn't spring on board. helicopter. i know you thought it was terrific. >> this is not the first time he did the trip. he did it months ago and talk about the experience of working on border security.
and this is a new video and style of approach and marketing that trip. he took it before and publicized it, too. >> lou: this video paid for by tax pay ares and sitting there on all sorts of government. is he running for something? >> you wonder what it is. it is at the same time house republicans support the president. there are so many areas where republican voters feel let down and they don't see help from the congress. >> lou: they should hang on to these peoplings. nick, you get the last world. >> and i will take support if it is support. let's hope speaker ryan developed a spine and moved away from the gemjellyfish.
and leading like a alphaman would be a welcome change. >> lou: thank a >> the russia story is a total fabrication. it's just an excuse for the great jest loss in the history of american politics we didn't win because of russia. we won because of you. paul: that was president trump going on offense following reports that special counsel robert mueller empanelled a grand jury in the investigation
