>> you are watching thoughts and friends first from the streets of new york city. let's get to our top story. a lot to talk about, and to keep the doors open for just three weeks, now the race against the clock to pass a budget and immigration deal is on. jenkins live in washington dc with the work that needs to get done and it needs to get done fast. >> they are open for business but just for now. the 3 day shutdown ending with another continuing resolution keeping the government open until february 8th, the president tweening last night,
big win for republicans as democrats cave on shutdown, big win for everyone including republicans, democrats and daca and military and border security. the deal was reached after republicans assured chuck schumer they would soon consider legislation to protect those dreamers. >> after several discussions, offers, counteroffers, the republican leader and i have come to an agreement, if an agreement is reached by february 8th the senate will proceed to consider can legislation dealing with daca. >> the vote was 81 to 18 with 15 democrats plus bernie sanders voting against ending the shutdown. two republicans joined them, the house quickly approved it leading -- lawmakers returned to

look at the timeline on this memo. republicans in the house intelligence committee knew of this and fat on it while congress was voting to expand authority, shouldn't congress have been told about these abuses which were known and testified to so they could be informed before they decided? heather: the judge andrew napolitano said the timeline is doubling saying house republicans were aware of the content before congress voted on the pfizer bill but didn't comment on it until after it was reinstated. now to a fox news alert, frantic search underway at this hour for five people missing after a series of fiery oil rig explosions, more than 20 people in oklahoma when the blast went off shooting flames and black smoke into the air. it took hours to put the fire out, 17 employees were rescued, one rushed to the hospital with an american hero found dead

be brought. gop strategists and gender and has been following this from the beginning and joins us now to weigh in. thank you for joining us. let's begin with that text and what that means to you. >> we sit here and talk about politics a lot, some days we have fun and joke around, the topic matter this morning could not be more grave, looking at these text messages. all the banter back and forth, it is clear that everyone in the fbi meets at the high levels of the fbi in advance that hillary clinton is not going to be prosecuted for her wrongdoing. how ironic this case really began over 33,000 missing emails and now we have 5 months of missing text messages, donald trump gets criticized for saying that the fbi is losing confidence with the american people and now --
heather: very clearly, she knows no charges would be brought on july 1st. these missing text messages, 50,000 of them, which is insane, between december 14, 2016, and may 17, 2017. a lot of key events happened during that time. >> awfully coincidental these missing text messages happened to occur at the time the trump dossier was published, prepared by the british by christopher steele. also what happened was peter strzok interviewed michael flynn who has fled in this case. this is a significant development, significant period of time. what also happened in this time period, james comey was fired as director of the fbi and the end date of the missing text
messages, guess what else happened, may 17th, the day robert mueller began the russia investigation. >> a technical glitch that caused it, definitely going to look into that. let's move to the second topic, i want to bring this up, this is what adam schiff had to say in terms of why americans should not see this memo. americans wouldn't understand it. listen. >> the american people don't have the underlying materials and can't see how distorted and misleading this document is. it is a disservice to the country. heather: this memo said to be jaw-dropping, people demanding that it be released, he says you don't want to release it because you wouldn't understand it. >> yes we do, it is called the united states constitution. that is the underlying material
and that guarantees the government does not spy on its own people. i believe this is worse than watergate, this isn't just a slogan. you have as a fisa warrant, system set up so the us government can monitor foreign citizens, not on us soil. >> the allegation is the obama administration used it to spy on the trump campaign and the transition team. that means not only were they using an weapon i think our intelligence against political opponent, someone they didn't like but they actually used it against someone who was duly elected by the people of the united states of america. this truly is worse than watergate. if you think back to watergate, some folks breaking into the dnc offices, this blows watergate out of the water. >> chairman nunez said, violating the foreign intelligence act concerning opposition research dossier on

one part of the story, not the totality of who i am. >> that video has been viewed a quarter of 1 million times on youtube, one person tweeting this is an important video and i sincerely hope people watch it. a lot of people watched it. another twitter user says great video, guy, you are great american getting a lot of support. he will be on "fox and friends" later today. one of my favorites, jim ross, donating a lot of money, not good reason to love him. >> he had the fake senate campaign last year but he actually raised real money while doing it and just revealed he is donating that money to a republican vote that permits voter registration. all the money raised was sent directly to the republican national committee action. the total is approximately $100,000. all that money has gone to that

i will start with you. what do you think? do you think negotiations will be better this time? we only have three weeks? >> i think it will be even more difficult than it was coming into the government shutdown and here is why. the democratic base seems very upset with chuck schumer, they feel as if senate democrats didn't get enough out of this deal and it is showing that the government shutdown is a tactic to negotiate is really a failing tactic so what we are going to see, great that mitch mcconnell has agreed to hear these daca specific build in the united dates senate but there's going to be even more pressure on democrats to get more, have more of a pure bill and once it gets to the house we will see if it does get that far and even more polarized environment with democrats digging in and
republicans who see this as amnesty digging in more. we may be right back where we started. heather: what can donald trump do to move it forward to you three weeks, 17 days. >> we are in a different place than we were last week. the democrats now are lacking one of their negotiating tactics which is a shutdown. i don't see that they can do a shutdown again. chuck schumer was proven right for 2013 when he said you shouldn't told the american people hostage for legislative issue, shouldn't to be dealt with as a part of funding the government, he was right back then and proven right by donald trump. the president demonstrated that he means what he says and says what he means, do not shut this government down and he was able to out leverage the democrats so look. not much leverage coming to the table. i think the present is big magnanimous by saying let's get back to the table. he is sticking to his primary
points in dealing with daca, ending the visa lottery system commanding change migration and building a law and securing our border. those things if they are not present he won't negotiate. heather: i want to follow up, what the republicans have as a negotiating tool since they have given up chip? they added that a this continuing resolution, that is what democrats wanted? what will republicans have to use to negotiate in terms of strzok? >> it will stick with the president's plan which is you know the president's priorities, more republicans will back the president, we are not going to go with the graham durban proposal that expands chain migration and expands the number of people covered under strzok -- daca. they have the power to be able to back president's agenda and i
think more of those swing state democrats up for reelection this year are going to stay on the republican side. they have those votes as well. >> you know firsthand about the swing state democrats. >> i think the votes that folks like joe mansion to keep the government open is a different kind of phones and voting for daca, republicans have the majority but you need those votes to get anything out of the united states senate so i think actually we are going to see more of a bipartisan collaborative effort in the senate when it comes to strzok against specifically taking the debate of more comprehensive immigration reform out of this. we might actually see tangible results out of the united states senate, with red states and more moderate republicans the real battle is going to be in the house where everybody is going
to go to their corner and not give an inch. >> we don't want to run into the problem we ran into this time around with the military not being affronted. >> republicans have the president to thank for giving the much greater leverage. a much greater advantage for republicans for the next 3 weeks. >> the art of the deal alive and well. we will see. >> let's hope for the sake of the people. >> have a great day. >> 20 minutes until the top of the hour, detrimental to democracy. facebook admitting the social media may not be good for the country but decided to prevent meddling in the 2018 midterms. >> switch jobs, takeover tv, since you are such an expert in ratings and i take over your job, and people can sleep comfortably again. >> don't touch california, that message to donald trump from the governor himself, arnold schwarzenegger taking aim at the president.

recreational marijuana, the first state to legalize pot through legislature instead of letting voters decide. this brings the number of states allowing recreational marijuana to nine along with the nation's capital. now to foxbusiness alert, detrimental to democracy, facebook admitting the social media platform may not be good for the country. what the site is doing to wipe out election meddling ahead of the 2018 midterms. >> facebook said it cut off or no assurance that social media was good for democracy but said it was trying to do anything it could to stop alleged meddling in future elections, this comes from a facebook post by product manager who said 126 million people did see posts by russian
agents during the 2016 election and facebook could have done a better job to prevent this. this comes as facebook recently announced they would be doing a credibility ranking of news reports that would be ranked by users of facebook. >> let's move on to united airlines, super bowl coming up and they are expanding service in minneapolis. >> united wants to get fans to the end zone, minneapolis, to celebrate the super bowl so they are adding more flights, right now they offer 26 flights to minneapolis from a tub so they will be adding 16 additional flights saturday, february 3rd, friday, february 2nd. some of these flights will be coming from rhode island, philadelphia, boston, all over the country and if you do want to get to the super bowl average prices for a ticket about $7000.

thank you for joining us. let's take people through what we are talking about. the state of iowa would allow a high school, the influence of the testament, to endorse, promote anything, explain what that means. >> i think it is a great decision. the bible, all of literature, at least western literature in one way or another points to the bible. you can't read shakespeare without coming across a bible verse. machiavelli, all these books, the bible is an excellent tool for people to look at history, how kings were made, a great book people can study heroes, people that have come out of
slavery or walked from a farmer to a leader, different people in leadership areas like kings and princes, how people can examine their lives, governor lives. >> teaching it is history, that is religion. how to use separate those two? >> i remember i was invited to icicle in new york and they asked me to teach a leadership class. i'm a pastor so i will teach leadership but let me use some examples from the bible and they said why not? we started to walk through different characteristics of people that lived across geographical lines. lines you can see starting from the beginning, these are not made up characters, you can go to these sites. i took my children into turkey to visit these different areas of the bible. >> we were discussing the
geography, a lesson you can learn, as we continue the conversation looking at other states, 7 other states passed laws supporting literature courses so seems to be a movement. >> some people want to say i don't want to discriminate but discriminating from that literature is actually like you were saying i am scared of this or this can really affect me but if you look at values today we have gone from hard work to material wealth. we have gone from hard work to comfort, we have gone from understanding things like patriotism, civil action to looking at different values of my comfort, my safety, my independence. these are good things for
children to read for people to understand, the impact it can have in this great nation. >> i would like to come here it. thank you, that was awesome. before we get to that, we need this to tell people about. over the weekend fox news suffered a tragedy in our family, brian stirling, a video operator collapsed during his shift, later passing away. he leaves behind his wife, lori, his 16-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son and countless friends at fox. after nearly eight years as a vital member of our operations team. you couldn't meet a nice a person, always had a smile on his face. our prayers go out to brian's entire family and friends, he will be missed.
