3:02 am
a lot going on. the president is going to be making a big speech this morning. we are all very fascinated to find out what he is going to say. ainsley: glad you brought that up. his speech follows a number of powerful others vice president pence and over g.o.p. leaders highlighting school safety and immigration. steve: griff jenkins is live once again on this friday morning. he is across the potomac in national harbor, mearmd. griff, what can we expect today? >> listen, this is what they came for. the second time. the president trump will address this crowd and it will be interesting to see what sort of tone he strikes. he has to bring the fire and brimstone rhetoric but also strike a national consoling tone as look forward to gun control. let me tell you yesterday it was vice president pence who brought the house down talking about the economy and taxes. and he took a shot at one of this crowd's favorite targets nancy pelosi. take a listen. >> any leader who says that
3:03 am
a thousand dollars in the pockets of working families is crumbs is out of touch with the american people. [cheers] >> but, you know, i have been talking to a lot of folks, i talked to students from hofstra walking around. what's everybody talking about? we're talking about gun control and what the president is going to say today and how he is going to secure the children of this nation. and, yesterday, wayne lapierre the head of the nra breaking his silence. here's what he had to say. >> evil walks among us. and god help us if we don't harden our schools and protect our kids. to stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun. [cheers and applause] >> now, just to put in perspective, two years ago, donald trump did not come to speak. last year he brought the
3:04 am
house down. they were skeptical. today he comes back, leading what many here in the hallways are say something a new conservative revolution in the vein of ronald reagan. this is an important speech not just for this conservative base but across the country as people tune in. and as you see behind me they have the metal door locked. but i'm hoping to get in there as soon as i can. steve: get a pry bar, a crowbar. [laughter] >> i will try to get in. steve: griff, thank you very much. ainsley: thanks, griff. steve: the president, it will be interesting to see what the president does say about school safety because he and the nra are apparently on two different pages because the president has called for hardening our schools. he has also called to up the age where you can buy one of those gun us. ainsley: and the bump stock. steve: expand. the nra has been against raising the age and
3:05 am
background checks. what will happen? maybe the president will lay his hand out. pete: it's been the most consequential year for conservatives in our lifetime. some things have gotten done. we ar.sometimes things are fload early on raising the long gun age 21. what do you do with background checks? what does hardening a school mean? a guy with a gun outside the front door or the teacher could say carry concealed in the classroom. ainsley: give them bottom newses if they do. my sister is a teacher in south carolina. my sister doesn't get paid, gosh they don't get paid enough. they really don't. you know, living paycheck to paycheck, that's what our teachers are doing. this gives them an opportunity, if they feel comfortable concealing and carrying, then they can get a bonus. pete: after training and background. all of those things. steve: one of the ideas being floated.
3:06 am
president in the listening stage right now. he is taking it all in. yesterday at the security meeting at the white house, he suggested that our schools should be guarded like banks, which is absolutely true. ainsley: yeah. then the nra spokesperson or president, he said, wayne lapierre, he said we should, if we are going to guard our banks, we should at least guard our children. if we are going to give police officers, i mean, if you are going to give politicians police officers to guard them, shouldn't would he be guarding our schools? that brings us to this next topic. we are learning new information this morning the armed guard assigned school resource officer for that school down in florida just before the shooting, he was standing outside. and he did nothing except call for backup. steve: yeah, the sheriff and the superintendent after the shooting last week in parkland were asked hey, there was a guy on campus with a gun. where was they go well, we don't know exactly. so they reviewed the video and they discovered the deputy scott peterson, who had been with the school since, i think 2008, 2009.
3:07 am
something like that. he went to the building, stood outside of it for four minutes. keep in mind the entire shooting was six minutes. while the gunman inside gunned people down. the sheriff yesterday said that deputy peterson should have went in, addressed the killer, and killed the killer. he has since -- yesterday he was suspended without pay. and then he decided he was going to resign and then he decided he was going to retire. pete: extremely unfortunate, deadly deficit of courage. i mean, that's what it comes down to. he probably never expected this moment to happen. is he outside with a gun. he hears shots fired. i'm going to call in for backup. what's going on in his head in that second minute and third minute and fourth minute as you are hearing gunshots. ultimately if you have an armed person they have to be prepared. the president railed against active shooter drills. why do we scare kids all day long. steve: don't call it that.
3:08 am
pete: we have to harden and prepare. teachers and security be prepared for these moments only training prepares you to go towards the shots of gunfire. no human is used to that instinct, unfortunately in this case that did not happen. ainsley: no crazy person with a gun is going to go to a hard targeted area. they goal into a soft area a gun-free zone. president said defense is important but so is offense. listen. >> unless you're going to have offensive capability, you are wasting your time. you are wasting your time. i want to end the problem. i don't want to have it where this happens again. and unless we are going to have an offensive capability, it's going to happen again and again and again and it's going to be the same old story. we have to harden our schools. not soften them up. a gun-free zone to a killer or somebody that wants to be a killer, that's like going in for the ice cream. that's like here i am, take me. we have to get smart on gun-free zones. when they see this is a
3:09 am
gun-free zone, that means nobody has a gun except them. nobody is going to be shooting bullets in the other direction. steve: that is such a good point. we need offensive capability, the president says. he makes a great point. keep in mind, if a bad guy with a gun knows nobody inside a school has a gun he is going to walk in there and that's a gun-free zone and that's just a terrible situation. the president is suggesting we need guns inside the school. is it teachers? is it wayne lapierre yesterday was at an event in oxen hill, maryland. he is the head of the nra. he suggested that schools should hire armed guards. and how do you ever put a price -- people go oh, that's going to be expensive. can you really put a price on school safety? pete: absolutely. ainsley: didn't this school do that? didn't they have an armed guard there? steve: they did. pete: president said in this same meeting you can't live in utopian world you think these things solve themselves. you don't want to turn your schools into prisons either. hardening a target the guy with a gun you don't see but
3:10 am
in the back your mind you know it's not a gun-free zone and ultimately then you think twice about doing something. ainsley: meadow who lost her life her dad said the first school shooting should have been the last school shooting. we should have fixed this. rush limbaugh said yesterday he's confident the president will. >> this is going to get fixed like taxes got fixed. the military is in the process of being rebuilt. that's going to get fixed. we are going to fix things to do with obamacare. you may not like the way donald trump talks and speaks. you may not like the fact that donald trump tweets. and you may not like the way donald trump walks. and you may not like this or that about donald trump his behaviorisms and his marriage and so forth. if you ignore that and take a look at what donald trump, the president is, accomplishing and what he is doing, when he was on the campaign trail, he said we're going to make america great again and as often he says we are going to make america safe again. it was in context largely to
3:11 am
do with illegal immigration, but they are going to fix this. steve: you know what? he could be right. we have sat on the couch for many school shootings sadly. but this time things just seem different. pete: that's right. you have a commander-in-chief standing up willing to speak blunt truth. in that meeting he was listening. he is also saying that's not a good idea. that's fantasy. that's a bad idea. let's have an honest conversation. you have to have capability, too. that strikes people where they live at. like wayne lapierre said a good guy with a gun is the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun. umphly we could have used a few more good guys this day. steve: elections year do the politicians have the strength to do something important? whatever that is, stay tuned. ainsley: we'll see. let's hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. jillian: good morning to you guys and to you at home as well. a fox news alert, alabama forced to postpone the execution of a killer dying of cancer who claimed his

steve: shocking new numbers by the center for immigration studies reveal the rising threat of the ms-13 gangs in the united states. according to the report, 207 murders in those red 22 states on your tv screen have been tied to the brutal gang since 2012. the gang exploding during obama's -- president obama's
3:18 am
open border policies. if we can't keep our border secure, how are we suppose to keep america safe, people are wondering. joining us now is the director of policy studies at the center for immigration study jessica von. good morning to you. she joins us from burlington, vermont. >> good morning. steve: this gang bursts into the american consciousness during the obama years because of why? >> well, yes. the gang had been here before, but definitely had a rebound during the obama years because, first of all immigration enforcement declined in the interior of the country deliberately under the obama administration. they put restrictions on ice officers on who they could arrest. and also during this time there was this influx illegal arrivals from central america. mostly teenagers, but also some families with kids who benefited from the catch and release policies that the obama administration had in place.
3:19 am
and they were resettled in places all over the country, which happened to be those very same places where ms-13 has seen a resurgence. and the gang knew about the lenient policies and was deliberately taking advantage of them to build its ranks here. and they have been on a horrific crime spree ever since. steve: no kidding. we have got some facts. 207 murders have been tied to ms-13 since 2012. 500 ms-13 members charged for major crimes since 2012 as well. and i understand that since january of 2016, there have been 17 people killed by ms-13. but here's the thing. it's hard to deport a lot of these people, jessica, because they are in sanctuary areas. >> that is a problem. we found that about half of the cases we looked at took place in sanctuary jurisdictions. these places are a magnet for illegal settlement and especially for transnational criminal organizations
3:20 am
because they know that police are forced to look the other way at their immigration status. they can't work with ice. so it's -- that's a great deal for them. it gives them sanctuary. steve: you got to like the proposal by lee zeldin a congressman from the great state of new york. he has introduced protecting our communities from gang violence it would revoke the citizenship of people who acquired citizenship and were involved in a gang like ms-13. does this bill have a chance to make it to the president's desk? >> i think it might. because the house is going to hopefully be moving on some good immigration legislation. the goodlatte bill securing america's future act. and i think it's important to include this provision to denaturalize gang members. we don't want them being citizens. steve: right. >> if they benefit from amnesty or marrying an american citizen. it's a good tool for immigration to have. steve: sure. >> and there may be a way to do that. steve: let's see what

3:47 am
your church before you were the preacher there. >> yes. ainsley: 54 years. yet he was never a resident of the state of texas. why was that? >> he wanted to be a part of the church that was conservative, believed the bible it was interesting. my mom was there, she trusted in christ at that crusade. they announced he would preach at first baptist dallas the next sunday. he joifned the church that day. my mom said if it's good enough for billy graham, it's good enough for me. i'm the pastor of first baptist dallas because of billy graham. ainsley: you are not alone. millions got saved because of him. >> absolutely. ainsley: what does that mean for people that don't feel like they have had salvation experience u what does that mean. >> it doesn't matter whether you are baptist, catholic, just, hindu, muslim. the fact is we are awful sinners, we need a savior.

simple message billy preached throughout his ministry and millions of people all races all nationalities responded to that message. ainsley: it's not about religion. we have too much religion already. this is about having a relationship with christ. and his message was so simple. is that why it resonated? >> absolutely. it was a simple message and it was built on the bible. you know, when he started ministering in the late 40's and 50's. many main line demonstrations were preaching pop psychology and philosophy and current events. but billy always said the bible says, the bible says. and that's why he had such authority. ainsley: you can't argue with that you have a special story you wanted to share with us. >> when i was 19, i started having doubts of whether the bible was really the word of god. i remember going to a conference where billy spoke at the university of illinois. and he told about a similar experience when he was a teenager and how one night on a florida golf clu golf coure was walking around and he threw himself on the ground and said i don't understand the bike. i'm not even sure i believe
3:49 am
it but with your help i will believe it and preach it the best i could. i heard that as a 19-year-old and with tears streaming down my face i said god, i'm making that same commitment tonight. later on a few hours later i accidently ran into billy graham. i told him of the commitment i made that night. he affirmed it he signed the note in my bible and it's something i treasure for the rest of my life because billy graham transformed my life in ministry through his faithfulness. ainsley: when i read your story, i thought he is just like us. you know, everyone has doubts at some point in their life. and he is relatable. >> yes, he is. ainsley: we look at him as this big celebrity. he is all of that but he also is a human being and he had doubts about his faith. >> i heard diane sawyer ask him one time what is it going to be like in heaven and have those rewards. he surprised her he said i don't think i have that many rewards in heaven because i got them on earth. it's going to be people you never heard of, plumbers,
3:50 am

3:56 am
detonation device. ainsley: how could they see what those guys were carrying on. >> that's it. this group of hackers are extraordinary about prying open anything when it comes to intelligence or technology. imagine a group of part-time pee that are scrappy, young, and thrown all kinds of missions without any real giant tools except their intelligence and a lot of technology. and they can turn that into a can opener and listen to other devices throughout the world. they utilize and this is speculation because they have never confirmed this, but a lot of reports say that they fly around on gulf stream jets with hackers in these jets with a bunch of listening equipment as well as they utilize embassies. but they are thought a desert in secret base in israel. ainsley: are they watching our planes too? >> you would hope. pete: more collaboration between u.s. and israeli intelligence these days. >> as you know. steve: all those people on that airplane have their

we have a busy day. the president is going to be speaking at cpac about three hours from right now. ainsley: the ambien has worn off. he is back from israel. let's talk about cpac. steve: president's speech follow a series of powerful voices from mike pence and other republican leaders including wayne lapierre from the nra. they were all talking about safety in america. pete: griff jenkins "fox news live" national harbor, maryland, with what we can expect from there today. griff, good morning. >> you good morning, guys. i tell you it was last year when i was in these halls when the president trump spoke to this crowd. the first sitting president since ronald reagan to address them. they came in skeptical and they came out just absolutely ecstatic what they have seen. now they get to hear after a year of accomplishments, their leader of a conservative movement, president trump speaking again that's at 10:05 today.
4:03 am
it was vice president pence yesterday who brought the house down and talked about an issue we haven't heard much about in recent days. that is something near and dear to this crowd, immigration. here is what the vice president said. >> president trump promised to enforce our laws, secure our borders. and today illegal crossings at our southern border have been cut nearly in half and make no mistake about it, we're going to build that wall. [chanting build that wall] >> so build that wall. they were fired up about that. this is the fire and brimstone crowd. this is the core of the base for conservatives. and they wanted to hear it. and the thing that they are really talking about in the halls as i walk up and down here all day yesterday is gun control. wayne lapierre the head of the nra breaking his silence yesterday to this crowd yesterday morning. here's what he had to say >> evil walks among us, and
4:04 am
god help us if we don't harden our schools and protect our kids. >> to stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun. [applause] >> it will be fascinating to see what president trump says because he is sort of speaking to the entire nation today as they look for solution to solve this senseless violence. but also, he is going to have to bring some pretty strong rhetoric. that's what this crowd wants. there is going to be a lot of good speakers today energy secretary rick perry as well as interior secretary ryan zinke and our own lawyer ingraham as well as kellyanne conway. going to be exciting day, guys, this crowd is already falling. in they are fired up and ready to go. steve: see the president live right here on the channel. griff, thank you very much. you will see rick perry the secretary of energy. he will be on this show about 15 minutes from right now. pete: as the vice president pointed out from the podium yesterday at cpac. he said this is the
4:05 am
conservative president we have been waiting for. he went through the entire litany what's been done in the first year. if you are a conservative and love this country, you couldn't help but stand on your feet and give an ovation to what has been done over the last year. a lot of execution on things that have been promised for a long time. ainsley: yesterday he sat down with law enforcement to continue that listening session about how we can make our schools safer. the message it seems over the last few weeks has been safety whether or not that's on the border or whether or not that's in our schools. steve: sure, and of course the president has mentioned maybe we should increase the age where can you buy one of those long guns to 21. expand background checks. those are two things the nra does not like. the president also has kind of floated this idea, you know, schools are gun-free zones. and so, maybe if the bad guys didn't know whether or not random teacher in a school might be -- have a conceal carry permit, maybe that would note onl not only bea deterrent but line of defense. interesting article today in the "new york times" talks about how a lot of educators have come out and said the
4:06 am
last thing we want to do is turn our teachers into guards. but, apparently there are dozens of schools scattered across the united states where they actually have teachers who are armed. ainsley: we interviewed that sheriff and he said i'm offering free training to any teacher. and he has hundreds of teachers have signed up for it mentioned possibly giving them bonuses if they get their conceal carry license. pete: pardon my skepticism that the "new york times" may have talked to a certain particular set of teachers. i would know a lot of teachers love the ability to responsibly carry concealed. it's not just about defense. part of hardening is giving a good guy to ability to go on offense. listen to what the president said. >> unless you're going to have offensive capability. you're wasting your time. you're wasting your time. i want to end the problem. i don't want to have it where this happens again. unless we are going to have offensive capability, it's going to happen again and again and again. and it's going to be the same old story.
4:07 am
we have to harden our schools. not soften them up. a gun-free zone to a killer or somebody who wants to be a killer, that's like going in for the ice cream. that's like here i am. take me. we have to get smart on gun-free zones. when they see this is a gun-free zone, that means nobody has a gun except them. nobody is going to be shooting bullets in the other directions. steve: here's the problem. the president may say we need an offensive capability. here's the problem down in parkland, florida. and that is it was announced yesterday by the sheriff down there that apparently a school resource officer with a gun was on campus and they wondered where was he? why didn't he respond? as it turns out he was standing outside the building. the shooting inside the building lasted six minutes. he stood outside for four minutes apparently waiting for backup. deputy scott peterson who has been with the school for about 10 years yesterday he was first of all suspended. and then he resigned and
4:08 am
then he retired. pete: deficit of courage definitely. and clearly he didn't have the training to be prepared to respond either. so if you are going to arm teachers responsibly, then you would also give them guidelines about how and when to respond. ainsley: do you think he was too scared. pete: hear shots of gunfire if you are average person carrying a gun, not trained, your instincts tell to you hunker down. they don't tell to you charge toward th hell fire bullet. you know how to respond in that moment. i'm sure he is sitting there regretting his actions that day. if more people armed the chance goes up that someone takes that courageous act. steve: earlier in the program we told you about a new report that is out that apparently ms-13 is now in 22 states and responsible for something like 207 deaths. ainsley: murders, yeah. steve: exploded during the obama years because of their lax immigration policy and allowing those undocumented minors to come, in turning many of them into daca
4:09 am
recipients. the president has tweeted about this separately in the last half hour. ainsley: ms-13 gang members he says are being removed by our great ice and border patrol agents by the thousands. these killers come back in from el salvador and mexico like water. el salvador just takes our money and mexico must help more with this problem. we need the wall. pete: though this point jessica vaughn the director of policy studies at the center for immigration studies which has looked deeply into this topic of ms-13. this is what she had to say on it. >> there was this influx of illegal arrivals from central miracle. mostly teenagers buy also some families with kids who benefited from the catch and release policies that the obama administration had in place. and they were resettled in places all over the country. which happened to be those very same places where ms-13 has seen a resurgence. and the gang knew about the lenient policies and was
4:10 am
deliberately taking advantage of them to build its ranks here and they have been on a horrific crime spree ever since. ainsley: according to the report half the crimes occurring in sanctuary cities where nothing can be done about it. pete: that's what the president is pointing out. you have a afternoon and release problem. then you have a border problem. and then you have a sanctuary city problem. and it's why the president yesterday also float you had the idea hey, if you want to have a sanctuary city, we can pull out our ice agents, too and see how that works out. steve: in california. pete: talking common sense to a world where there are no borders, there is no enforcement and wonder why gangs flourish. the president when he talks about it is delivering simple common sense. steve: 207 dead people responsible for ms-13 that's jaw-dropping. ainsley: hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. hello. jillian: we are following breaking news right now. starting with this fox news alert. alabama forced to postpone the execution of a killer dying of cancer who claimed his veins were too damaged

♪ ♪ pete: house republicans launching phase ii of their investigation into the anti-trump dossier. they want to know what members of the obama administration knew and when they knew it. here to discuss republican mark meadows of north carolina and jim jordan of ohio. gentlemen, thank you for joining us this morning. i really appreciate it congressman. >> great to be with you. pete: absolutely. congressman meadows, let me start with you. in a letter obtained by fox news, committee chairman devin up in necessary, republican from california, posed a series of questions
4:18 am
about the dossier. what do you anticipate they're trying to find out about who knew what and when? >> i think those 10 questions are key. is who in the government knew what and did they know that the democratic party and hillary clinton had actually paid for it? it was interesting in the tease that you had with brennan, here you have an intelligence officer saying that he didn't know where the dossier's origination came from. well, if he can't find that he would have a hard time find terrorists. so, you know, it doesn't pass a smell test. we have got to find out who in the government knew what when. pete: your reference is to director john brennan who testified in may of 2017 that the trump dossier was virtually unknown to him. congressman jordan have you been all over this issue as well. is it conceivable in light of the case that was built on behalf of the dossier that the former cia director would almost know nothing about it? >> well, you would find that hard to believe. but that's what devin is going to figure out. that's why he sent it to
4:19 am
almost 2 dozen members of the government. key people. can you probably guess who they are. state department people. fbi people. two dozen people. if they don't give the answers is he going to subpoena them. that's what we have to do to get to the bottom of this. one of the things last week, pete, that was really important. senator cotton's questioning of director wray, he asked him about russian oligarch. and he said was christopher steele being paid by this russian oligarch during this time when he was putting together this dossier which was taken to the fisa court? and director wray's response was i can't talk about that here. we can talk about that in a classified setting. so we don't know if the answer to that question is yes. but if it is, think about this fact. the clinton campaign part of the dossier. the democratic national committee paid for the dossier. and if a russian oligarch was paying the author of the dossier at the same time, that is unbelievable. now, we don't know, but that question i think sure raised suspicion and concern just like this letter that devin sent with his 10 questions that we got to get the
4:20 am
answer to. pete: absolutely. congressman meadows from the conservative perspective, very briefly, we only have 20 seconds here. on the gun debate, what aspect does the freedom caucus want to see of anything considered? >> i think what you found even as recently as last night, what we do know is that the government was notified of a health concern. the government was notified of the fbi. even last night we saw a government school resource officer. more government doesn't solve the problem. pete: sounds exactly baseline what the freedom caucus stands for. gentlemen, thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> thank you, pete. pete: you got it she was running an illegal day care and she ditched the kids to hit the gym. and get a tan. but that's not even the worst part. you see that? gym tan prison. and digital world after kirk cammeron just studied how to balance all of it he is here lye with what he found out next. system plus, standard...

♪ how do you like me now ♪ how do you like me now. steve: at 10:00 this morning, the president of the united states is going to be talking to a packed house over in national harbor maryland which is just across the potomac from washington, d.c. one of the other speakers is rick perry former governor of the great state of texas and currently the secretary of the u.s. department of energy. mr. secretary, good morning to you. ainsley: good morning. >> good morning to you all. steve: great to have you. we will play a sound bite for you because having lived down in texas your whole life, you are very concerned with immigration. here's the president yesterday talking about if california is going to be a sanctuary state, maybe the federal government should pull the ice guys out. listen to this. >> frankly, it's a disgrace. the sanctuary city situation, the protection of these horrible criminals,
4:34 am
you know because you are working on it the protection of these horrible criminals in california in and other places. if we ever pulled our ice out. let california alone, let them figure it out for themselves, in two months they would be begging for us to come back. they would be begging. and you know what? i'm thinking about doing it. steve: governor, what do you think? >> well, i think that this whole issue of immigration has always been incredibly difficult one. if it wasn't, it would have been done a long time ago. the president is a first rate negotiator. is he clearly sending some messages not just to california, but also to congress. so, i feel quite certain they will get it all worked out and get this country safe and get an immigration plan in place that indeed does what i think most americans want to do, make sure we know who everybody is that's coming into this country. a clear line to become
4:35 am
american citizen. and the rule of law. and holding the day. pete: governor, he also tweeted this morning that the wall is a big part of that i know you have been supportive of that also. part of the reason you are at cpac and what you are talking about these days and emphasizeelm if a emphasizing department of energy. emergency response. describe that new initiative. >> well, clearly, cyber is the new frontier if you will from the standpoint of cyber warfare, attacking particularly the electrical systems, the grids. we saw ukraine attacked both in 2015 and 2016 by the russians. and we saw ransom ware shut down an entire hospital this last year in this country. so cyber warfare is very serious. people's lives are in jeopardy the department of agency is the sector specific agency to protect those electrical grids from
4:36 am
the cyber type of attacks. we work with other agencies as well. both the dod and others. dealing with cyber issues. so, we look at this as one of our most important jobs to protect american citizens, protect wherever they might be. and innovating, rather than regulating is the real difference between this administration and the previous administration. we believe that we'll come up with innovation rather than just government regulating and putting another law on the books. you're going to see some really, i think, leading edge innovation. we have the biggest super computing capability in the world in the united states, five of the fastest super computers belong to the department of energy. so, you will see our data analysis being a great deal of this as well as we move towards the scale model and doe is right in the middle of all of that. ainsley: will you explain what this means in layman's terms?
4:37 am
are repreventing hacking or preventing nuclear plants from being attacked and what is a super computer? >> anxiously, all of the above. when we talk about protecting the american citizens from a cyber attack, we're talking about viruses that can be put into systems that can lay there literally for years undetected that previously and we have the ability now with our computers that in a super computer being one that has the ability to move at such massive rates of data through there and extraordinary speeds. to be able to analyze just massive amounts of data. we are moving into mississippis what we call machine learning. on the edge of artificial intelligence. i mean, it is moving at incredibly fast pace. the department of energy is keeping up with that. we have got 17 national labs that are the vast majority of them have some role in
4:38 am
this cyber security business. steve: well, that's great. i'm glad you are being vigilant. meanwhile you are there at national harbor at cpac. you're going to actually turn around and go up to the stage in a little while and give a speech. what are you going to tell folks? >> well, i'm on the stage with brian zinke. we're going to talk about energy independence and the total change in the world energy wise. 15 years ago the united states was dependent on a lot of countries that didn't necessarily -- weren't necessarily our best friends. let's put it that way. today the united states produces more oil and gas than any other nation in the world. our ability to geopolitically affect the world with energy is one of the things we are going to talk about. the federal lands and opening up those federal lands of which ryan zinke and the department of interior have oversight will be part of that conversation. we're also going to talk about some interesting things that we do that people might not think our agencies would be involved with. for instance, the department det of energy stands up an

what happens to due process? >> you answer your own question, pete, here you are, a prudent, reasonable veteran of the united states armed forces and, i don't, i don't, even though i know that ar-15 is not used for hunting, never used for hunting. this high velocity with high capacity magazines, give me a break! you're not going to hunt duck with an ar-15. what you will do, pretend to be rambo. your whole personality changes when you hold that weapon. you know this is your trophy weapon. you imagine the black helicopters, how are you going to fight off the bad guys. every videogame has a ar-15 clutched. same weapon as m-16 with slight modifications. the kid was dreaming his nightmarish revenge. ainsley: worst school shooting was with a handgun. not a ar-15. >> i covered virginia tech. i understand that. ainsley: that is slippery slope.

5:13 am
recounted to me his reaction to seeing the survivors. they weren't, the victim of an ar-15 doesn't get, not like in the movies where someone wear as sling and little red stain. these kids had arms blown off. these kids were maimed. pete: why he came back with common-sense approach. >> it is historic approach. my point is, here is a republican, conservative president who is going to do more for controlling this problem than any liberal democrat ever did. with the background checks. with the no-fly zone, no-fly list you don't get a gun. steve: okay. >> if you have a protection order you don't get a gun license. troubled 18-year-old from parkland high school you don't get a gun. steve: yesterday we heard from wayne laperriere the guy who runs the.

the employment number comes out, watch the wage gains. they come up and pick up big time. ainsley: are we seeing people go towards technical schools versus a college? because they still do make a lot of money in the technical industry? >> we should. the amount of welding jobs out there, the construction industry, the only thing holding back the housing market, is lack of carpenters, people with those schools. what happened during the great recession, older carpenters or welders a lot of them quit their jobs. we didn't see older person bringing someone, a nephew or friend, train them, entrepreneurship, apprenticeship went away. we have a skills gap gulf. but the opportunities, we're on cusp of something major in this country. steve: you sound like mike rowe. >> i like mike rowe a lot. steve: thank you, charles. ainsley: he was a pastor but he was also a father. billy graham's son is here live

reverend franklin gram. reverend, thank you so much for being with us this morning. we're with you and your family at this time. the nation mourns along with you. each of us have in some way a story about the reverend. i heard him speak at a crusade in minneapolis in 1990s as a teenager. it affected me. affected so many. what do you as a legacy want to terri forward from your father? >> first of all my father was faithful preaching the gospel, it was not only a message of god's love, but god's warning. there is judgment. all of us have a life to live. but after that the judgment. we have to stand before god. my father wanted people to know how they could have their sins forgiven. by putting their faith and trust in god's son jesus christ who came to this earth to take our sins. he died for our sins, hung on a cross and shed his blood for our
5:26 am
sins, was buried. god raised his son to life. jesus is to the dead. my father is not dead. he is more alive than ever. he is in the presence of almighty god. this can be each and everyone's hope if they put their faith and trust in jesus christ. they is can have assurance of sins forgiven and being in heaven with god for eternity. as a family we're sad, but at same time we rejoice. we know where our father is. we'll join him one day. ainsley: how do you have the strength this morning to come on national television to talk about him without getting choked up? you're so strong? >> i loved my father and i know where he is. and i know that he is in the presence of god. so, like i said, i'm sad and there is a hole in my heart because i miss him but at the same time, he is with god. he preached about heaven. he talked about heaven. he wrote a book on heaven.
5:27 am
guess what? he is in heaven. so i'm excited for him. steve: yeah. franklin for young people who are unfamiliar with the story of billy graham, the other day when the news broke during our show, we tried to tell as much about his humble start but he really started on the radio. he was on somebody's show out in los angeles. there was just something about that show, people said, we got to put him on all the time. william randolph hearst would run columns about the billy graham crusades. what was his message in the early days, and why was it so potent he became the biggest preacher of all time? >> his message was the same when he started preaching in the '40s as it was when he finished preaching in the '90s. his same message, that god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, who so every believeeth in him should not
5:28 am
perish but have every lasting life. that is message my father preached. it's a message of god. god gave it to my father. billy graham was a country boy from mechanic henneberg county in charlotte, north carolina. negative saw himself as celebrity. he always saw himself as a farm boy. for some reason god touched him. something god did, steve, that is just, it is just god. and my father would, if he were sitting here right now he would tell you the same thing. was god. ainsley: you know what i loved about your parents? i watch ad dvd, you know the one i'm talk about, infomercial 10 years ago, talked about your mom's life when she died. i bought it, i went through it. i watch it occasionally because she is the woman i strive to be. what about your parents relationship? in this day and age, so many broken marriages, some things wrong in the home? can you tell us what your parents did to keep that glue together? >> well, first of all, in our home, we had devotions every
5:29 am
morning and every evening as a family. and my mother and father read scriptures and studied the scriptures together. my mother memorized scripture. every day, up until the week she died she was still memorizing scrip tough. i think it is the bible my mother and father made that the center of their life. they loved god. they loved the lord jesus christ. they wanted to study the bible. they wanted the home to be a christian home. i don't ever remember my mother and father arguing. i'm sure they did when they back and closed the doors but in front of us children, they were always united, working together. and if my mother said something, my father backed her. if my father said something, mother backed him. and they were, they were united in front of us children. i just appreciate the godly example that my mother and father set in the home.
5:30 am
steve: reverend graham, we were showing a montage of the dozen presidents that your father met with and prayed with as well. >> yeah. steve: that had to have been an awesome responsibility but almost a burden perhaps, to think you know, hey, the leader of the free world is asking me for advice? >> well, my father tried to keep his advice spiritual and many times they would ask him questions about politics or would ask him questions about something they were facing at that particular time but he always tried to keep his comments based on the word of god, what god had to say. so as a result of that he prayed with them. he counseled them from the word of god and he was friend with all of them, even up to our current president, president trump. they have known each other and they had been friend. pete: reverend, your father had an awesome responsibility as steve said, dozen president, counselor to them, for that
5:31 am
reason his body will lie in honor in two days next week in the rotunda of the u.s. capitol building. the reverend is the first private citizen to receive that privilege since rosa parks in 2005. he is in heaven, that is where he would want to be, but what does that mean to your family to have such a legacy? >> first of all it's a great honor that the nation would want to on nor a man of god. so as a family we're humbled and just grateful that the nation is doing this for my father. but my father lived a life that was consistent. he never changed. he was always faithful to the message that god gave him to preach. that was god so loved world. so that is what my father preached. but he warned people, again, remember there sis a judgment. god is going to judge sin. and yes, god is a god of love but he is a just god. and he will judge sin. only way we can be forgiven is under the blood of christ.

5:36 am
joining us today from nashville. >> good morning, steve and ainsley and pete. great to be with you guys. steve: good to have you. the president has been listening ever since what happened last week happened down in parkland, and he has got a lot of ideas. we heard maybe he is going to suggest raising the age to buy that kind of a long gun, better background checks into mental health. maybe making sure that there is somebody with a gun inside of a school, whether it's a teacher or a paid security guard. where do we go from here? >> well i think the president's done a good job of trying to a simulate all the ideas that people are bringing together. but let's keep in mind, this shooting should have never happened. if the bib if -- fbi and local sheriff's department fulfilled their obligations and duties this kid would never have been able to purchase a weapon and certainly never been able to show up on the school ground to kill 17 people. add to the tragedy, a person with a gun, with a uniform at
5:37 am
the school at the time of shooting, he was taking cover behind a concrete post, instead of going in and stopping the shooting. people say what can we do? we can do the things that we are supposed to already be doing. we could have agencies that actually do the jobs that they're tasked to do. pete: governor your critics will say stance, then is to do nothing. what you're pointing out there were government layers an institutions there and they failed to meet their obligation, yet what we're talking about the national conversation are more layers of federal government control. what then is your solution for a left looking for an automatic silver bullet? >> i certainly don't subscribe to the idea of doing nothing. but the nothing is why we had the shooting. the nothing that was done about it fbi. in relationship to the facebook post for this kid, they couldn't identify him even though his name was clearly in the post. the nothing done by the sheriff's department, when they had over 30 different visits to the kid's home. the nothing done by the guard who took cover rather than to
5:38 am
take charge. those are not nothings. those are somethings. there is a great piece that is available on twitter, i, twitted a repeat by ari shulman. it's a long thread looking at this, we didn't have mass shootings untilled mid '60s. didn't proliferate until the late '80s. why? not a matter of presence of guns, we have as many guns per person now as we did then but here is something i think does matter. the fact that we give these shooters infamy. give them so much attention. we put their faces and their names widely on the screen, in every newspaper. there are some people whose lives are so insignificant they feel like this is the way they can finally have some level of infamy. i think we should simply never mention their names, don't put their faces up. just call them an animal. call them whatever you want to call testimony, let's not make them celebrities. i really believe that is something we could do
5:39 am
immediately. i know that is a hard ask of the media, but frankly, we shouldn't be giving these guys the celebrity of being able to say, i'm on every newspaper in america. ainsley: you're right. there are several things that will have to change. we don't like taking our shoes off at the airport, as a result of terrorism we have to do. something will have to be done here. let's move on to another topic. fox news alert, we just learned during the president's cpac speech today in hour and 20 minutes the president will announce the largest sanctions package, i think we lost the governor. let us tell you this. the president --
