[♪] arthel: as we begin with a fox news alert from thailand. four boys brought out of that flooded cave now safe at a hospital after a remarkable rescue operation. mike: i'm mike emanuel. an international team of cave divers successfully bringing the first four boys out. the boys are said to be in perfect health after swimming under water for a half mile. president trump tweeted his support earlier today. the u.s. is working closely with
the government of thailand to help get all the children out of the cave and to safety. very brave and talented people. arthel: jeff hall is on the ground with breaking developments. what can you tell us? reporter: the big concern is the rain. it's pouring here tonight in mae sai, thailand. the local governor got on tv and gave out a few tidbits and information. he said he can confirm four of the 12 players have been rescued. they were taken straight to the hospital for medical care. he mentioned all of the oxygen tanks along the route used in the operation were used during that trip out of the cave. so lots of resources. rescue crews need 10 hours to
repair for the next trip to get the other players out of there. it took 7 hours 40 minutes to get the first boys out of the cave. they were anticipating it could take 11 hours. it seems the operation with international divers and local thai divers is running smoothly. all we need is to get them back out there and see who else they can get out in a safe manner. mike: we'll have more on this developing story later in the show. dr. michael baden will talk about the physical, emotional and psychological stresses on the boys and their coach. this is a fox news alert. all of washington anxiously awaight the announcement tomorrow night. president trump set to announce
his choice for the supreme court justice to replace anthony kennedy. >> republicans are holding four lottery tickets and all of them are winners. if you are a conservative republican, the four people named, particular think thomas hardiman, i'm glad he's on the list, are all winners. reporter: president trump is letting the anticipation build for this announcement. in trump still hasn't communicated a final choice. the president said late last night he narrowed it down to two or three finalists. the white house prepared rollout packages for four candidates. most of republican senators say they would be happy with any of the four. but many have said they
especially like' kethledge and hardiman. >> i'm not sure i am leaning anywhere on those four nominees. i think they will all be -- they are good judges. i think they would be fine justices of the supreme court. the president has to think about who is easiest to get confirmed here. and i expect we'll do that on a normal timetable of a couple months. reporter: democrats wanted to delay the confirmation hearings until after the mid-terms and they may do that by dragging the process out. the margins are much tighter and the gop is hoping the party stays united. >> i can't' predict how the party will vote. but if john mccain is absent.
one republican senator can decide the fate of any supreme court nominee. reporter: the president met with mike pence over the weekend to discuss his figure for the supreme court and he'll make the announcement tomorrow night. mike rrp thanks a lot. arthel: for more on this we'll be joined by a former member of the white house policy council and former clerk for justice alito and judge kavanaugh. if you would talk to us more about judge kavanaugh. tell us what it is in his professional and personal character that would make him a good supreme court justice. >> i had honor of work for judge kavanaugh 11 years ago, and i know him well. the country has an opportunity to know him well.
he has been on the bench for 12 years. he has written 300 opinions. so in those thousands of pages of opinions he addressed every single topic that is important to the united states, that this president ran on and i talked about from immigration to trade, religious liberty, the second amendment. job-killing regulations, the war on radical islamic terrorism. if i'm the public and looking at that entire record, i'm wondering who is it i know will apply the law the way it should be applied. this president has reshaped the federal judiciary. arthel: you understand while there are people who support that, there are many people concern about the very thing you are talking about. >> yes. there will be people against the president's america first
agenda. and they would not like somebody who applies the law the way judge kavanaugh has. he faithfully looks at the constitution and interprets it according to his original understanding. arthel: this is background i'm going to share that you know. judge kavanaugh played a leading role in investigations involving the clintons and the starr report that urged the impeachment of clinton and the proin to the suicide of a clinton aide. he was nominated to the appeals court by george w. bush. and those confirmation hearings were contentious and stalled for three years. might this serve as a signal to the potential difficulties getting him confirmed before the mid-terms? >> i think absolutely not. the reason for that is what he
did as a young staffer at the white house says nothing compared to the last 12 years on the bench where he told us exactly the way he'll apply the laws once he's lucky enough to get on the supreme court. picking somebody like him would cement the president's legacy as the beth president in modern history. arthel: it depend on your perspective. but we have to talk to everyone all over the country. i asked you about roe versus wade. and as you well know president trump said he won't ask any of the nominees this question. >> judges aren't allowed to prejudge a case before it gets before him. i have never spoken to the judge about roe versus wade and he won't be able to give an answer until the case is before him. but like any good judge, he'll look at the original intent of
the constitution and look at precedent and take into account the appropriate factors in deciding to rule on any case that comes before him. they will were let's look at at other federal appeals court judges. we have amy coney barrett, raymond kethledge and thomas hardman. hardiman. >> this president put together an exceptional list vetted by the federalist society. so i know we can be confident they are all exceptional. but what i can tell you is the contrast. if you look at very particular subject areas. immigration. one of the president's signature area. judge kavanaugh has several opinions that shows how oh would apply the law. his liberal colleagues on the
court held that union workers and union elections even though they are illegal immigrants, they would be able to vote in american union elections. judge kavanaugh said no, they are not aloud to even work here. the second one, a chain of restaurants wanted to bring in a bunch of of foreign workers and displace their american workers. you have judge kavanaugh saying that's not legally acceptable. economic expediency for a corporation is not valid enough reason for displace american workers. it fights for enforcing the laws that protect american workers. they will were you are a former clerk for judge kavanaugh so that has shaped your opinion. you know not everyone agrees
with the president's policies on immigration. so we leave it there. just, lay it out that you are here with one part of that particular story. we appreciate you being here. mike: secretary of state mike pompeo brush aside north korea's allegation the trump administration is making gangster-like demands. >> i have a message for chairman kim. president trump believes your country can replicate this path. it's yours if you will seize the moment. the miracle could be yours. it could be your miracle. mike: this comes as we await two key summits during the upcoming visit to europe. a week from tomorrow the president sits down with russian
president vladimir putin. gillian turner is live from washington with the latest. >> it's gearing up to be a big week for the president. he heads to brussels in a couple of days. it's a meeting intended to bolster the alliance. while there, president trump will extend time with the foreign leaders of america's closest european allies like france, and germany and going into turkey. the president is focusing his message to the american people on cost sharing. president trump: we go away monday, and i will see lots of people. i will see nato, and i will tell nato, you have got to start paying your bills. the united states is not going to take care of everybody. >> every ally is increasing defense spending. we have had the largest increase in defense spending since the
cold war. in the near and a half that president trump has been in office, it has doubled since 2014. >> when it comes to big ticket items it includes the international migrant crisis. the syrian civil war. north korea's nuclear threat and cyber-security. the elephant in the room is russia. vladimir putin's threats to the world order. >> i think russia is trying to flip turkey and many of our allies. they want to destabilize the strongest defense alliance in the history of the world, and that is nato. reporter: president trump will meet with putin on the heels of the summit in helsinki for a private meeting. many of the heads of state the president sees in brussels
haven't spoken with him since his summit with kim jong-un in june. the north korean ministry disparaged their meeting with secretary of state mike pompeo saying they are reconsidering their commitment. mike: christian whitton will can with us later this hour. arthel: four boys rescued from the flooded cave in thailand are now in the hospital. week talk to dr. michael baden about the physical and mental toll it will take on the boys. lots of practice. get them started right with carnation breakfast essentials. it has protein plus vitamins and minerals to help kids be their best.
this wi-fi is fast. i know! i know! i know! i know! when did brian move back in? brian's back? he doesn't get my room. he's only going to be here for like a week. like a month, tops. oh boy. wi-fi fast enough for the whole family is simple, easy, awesome. in many cultures, young men would stay with their families until their 40's. mike: a new round of rough weather. wildfires force people out of their homes as a tropical storm heads toward the eastern caribbean. we have fox news team coverage in san juan, puerto rico. but we begin live from our los angeles bureau with more on
the intense wildfires. reporter: in california crews are battling a number of fires, and they are work in extreme exy hot conditions. along the california-ore bored, the fire has taken the life one person found in a burned out home. it is just 5% contained. fire officials are explaining what they call extreme fire behavior. this is one of a number of situations where fire resources are being sent in. this super tanker came in from colorado. once ready it will aid with the fight with the ability to carry 19,200 gallons of water have
seaboard are on alert at tropical storm beryl is set to make landfall in the caribbean and puerto rico. reporter: it's a red flag day around the beaches around san juan. the surf is churning, but people are still in the water. the state of emergency does remain in effect. but at this point it's a precautionary warning because the hurricane threat friday and saturday morning is dead. hurricane beryl no longer a hurricane now. just a weakening tropical storm. all around and want it's a regular sunday in the summertime. the threat and worry has disappeared. everywhere you look the commonwealth is enjoying another day. the on threat remaining will be 20-30-mile-an-hour wind.
that's not forecast to happen until monday evening or afternoon. the tourist sector of old san juan, people walking around. the island chain, the lesser antilles. but as tropical form beryl mars westward with its 35-mile-an-hour wind, wind shear within the caribbean is expected to break it up. beryl is going to weaken even further to a tropical depression as it blows to the u.s. virgin islands and the southwestern tip of puerto rico. the big cory friday and saturday moirntion how would this island perform and survive potentially hurricane-force winds coming 9 months after the devastating cat-4 hurricane maria last year that caused $100 million in
damage. people on the island had no power for months. according to the governor, 99% of this island has been rebuilt. everyone does have electricity. farce beryl goes, they opened 400 shelters. but as of now all reports say they are all totally ended. arthel: for more details we'll toss it over to meteorologist adam klotz. let's start out west with the wildfires. adam: it's being driven by extreme heat continuing this weekend. if you live on the eastern half of the country maybe you noticed things have cooled off. along the east coast that is also the case. but from the plains stretching back to the west we are look at spots into the 80s. in the desert southwest stretching into portions of
colorado and back off to the north. all areas that have been seeing days and days of extreme heat will be continuing again. especially in california where we see heat advisories stretching along the coast. then inland take you up into portions of nevada. extreme heat, low humidity will continue to be a dangerous situation. that heat marches on as temperatures climb up to 110 degrees. l.a. will be 95 degrees. it's not a big cooldown. but the next couple days the numbers start to drop. 91 in l.a. monday. tuesday closer to the lower triple digits. losing a little bit of temperature there. we have seen a couple isolated showers firing up. but that ground already burnt causes potentially flash
flooding. the other thing happening is the tropical storm season. puerto rico tomorrow, and lesser an til ease today. this isn't the -- the lesser an tilesslesser antilles. it is from to run up to a category one hurricane. but this will stay offshore. maybe some rip current issues. but i'm not expecting an impact for the united states. arthel: adam klotz, thank you. mike: a daring rescue mission set to resume later today in thailand after rescuers got four boys out of that flooded cave on a 7-hour journey. some red state democrats feeling pressure to back president
trump's choice for the supreme court and the impact it could have on the november elections. booking a flight at the last minute doesn't have to be expensive. just go to priceline. it's the best place to book a flight a few days before my trip and still save up to 40%. just tap and go... for the best savings on flights, go to priceline. ..
>> foxes were from thailand. successfully rescued in the complicated and dangerous serving more than half a mile in total darkness. the mission to save the remaining young people and their soccer coach expected to resume later today. arthel: the four boys have been taken to hospital where they are recovering from a two-week ordeal. what are the long-term physical and emotional effects on them? joining us now is a forensic apologist and contributor, very glad to have you here to answer some questions i think a lot of people are asking. we'll get you the effects of the boys. let's talk about those who have been taken to the hospital. what will they be checking for and what could have happened to them in transition?
>> will be immediately checked in for dehydration, loss of weight, oxygen levels, all of which can be corrected very easily. they will also be checking for infections because the they have, as you saw on some of the tapes come in they are putting iodine on the soles of seed because these kids can have bruises and cuts on their feet from walking in other parts of the body and there may be bugs down there that are more infectious than the ones we are accustomed to. they will be checking for infections. they should do very well physically. emotionally and mentally it is hard to predict. most young kids like this who's been at a pretty supportive environment even though in the cave and appear to be acting appropriately from the videos we have seen respond very well.
i am sure they will have psychological and emotional support in addition to their families. so the outlook i think is very good for all or most of these kids. physically and emotionally. arthel: now we want to talk about the one still left there. we were talking about the oxygen levels. if you want to take that over. >> kids aged 12 to 16 feet like weeds because they are growing. the lack of proper nutrition similar oxygen. what is the impact is the critical part right now. in the trillion 2010 disaster where they had 33 miners can find for 69 days. they would put oxygen down. right now we are breathing 21% oxygen. when it goes below 19%, and they start to get woozy because the brain uses up about 25% of the
oxygen we are bringing in. the lower oxygen is the brain that gets it. if it gets down to 15%, which is what they are stated so far in the environment, the person can become very disoriented and unable to move properly which is increasingly more important to rescue them. and if it gets below 10%, death can occur within consciousness, convulsions all because of the lack of oxygen. they couldn't do it the way they did it, and the oxygen is just being used up. >> it's our understanding because it is such a narrow pathway to get to the kids, it's going to be almost impossible to bring in oxygen tanks for something like that. >> they are having difficulty. arthel: given those made for
hire oxygen levels, how much time do they have come into the rescuers have two get the voice to safety without damage to their brain. matzo physical as well as emotional. that is tricky. they said they been able to reduce the water levels a great deal, so maybe oxygen can go in. now it's raining and they can't stop water from coming in from all different sides and raising the levels. they have just a few days to be able to get around safely. i would think that they got the strongest for out first to see if it will work. it is 11 to 16-year-old in the 11-year-olds are in the most jeopardy. >> what is the impact of the guys left behind in terms of finding out that they're a team
that's coming in and out safely. >> that is a huge lift in the communications is a huge lift and that means they can do it. so that's a great impact. the emotional toll, looks like the scout, the guy in charge has handled them very nicely while they were confined for 10 days until they were rescued. he also is the one who's most at risk for emotional issues and ptsd. arthel: because he also brought them there. >> and is apparently given over a lot of this food and things to the kids. arthel: it's interesting you said you think they got the stronger boys out first to see if it works. is that because they are strong enough to help assist for why you say that? >> strong enough not to panic. the thing is that can happen when you can't breathe, and you
start panicking, even though you have enough oxygen in you. that is why people drown in the opening. people who suddenly can't swim quite well and they panic when the rescuers come and they can pull the rescuers down. it would put the diapers at risk also. they start panicking because at a moment in time when the mask isn't working when they are squeezing through a passage or something. it is a danger for both the kids in the rescuers. arthel: anything we have a nasty that you would like to point out? >> just the appreciation come in the importance of oxygen. we take it for granted because they've got 21%. if it goes lower than not, the person gets confused, hallucinating and doesn't function in a way that's
helpful. >> still like all of us from a different different perspective you remain hopeful. >> hopefully once they get out though be physically okay. 11 to 16 x how much -- amazing how much injury they will bounce back room. that's the good thing about being younger. arthel: so many good things about being younger. dr. michael baden come a thank you. >> president trump set to announce a supreme court nomination tomorrow at 10:00 eastern time. those in red states could feel pressure to back his nominee or risk losing their seats in november. senator lindsey graham on "fox news sunday" this morning could the president's decision to live democrats between a rock and a hard place. >> donald trump can dominate george washington for john marshall and they couldn't get through. this is a nightmare for red state democrats to pose a highly qualified nominee. all four of those people are highly qualified, and know what
they're doing, mainstream judges. red state democrats are going to have a very hard decision. >> joining me now is a congressional reporter for the "usa today." nice to see you on sunday. >> good to see you come to two pitch to make a difficult will for democratic leader chuck schumer opposing a supreme court nominee? >> very difficult. this is an election year. a lot of democrats up for reelection. but there is a handful of those in states that trump won by a 42-point. these democrats are really feeling the heat. they need to win that trump voter and they also need the democratic base to show out. that's a hard line to walk. absolutely do not vote to confirm. they really want them to confirm and also republican voters might not love trump, but are
supportive of republicans for the supreme court issue. >> some of the democrats to watch. donnelly, heitkamp, mansion, all facing reelection and who supported the confirmation of justice neil gorsuch. >> right. that is key because gorsuch was very controversial because of the way he came about. president obama had nominated senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. how the nomination was very upset about that with the help of these democrats. it is the really tight margin. one or all of these democrats could put the nominee over the edge. >> also expected to be a lot of pressure put on susan collins of maine. what about that side of the aisle? >> democrats are putting the
pressure on those republicans depends who's nominated. murkowski and collins are for abortion rights. they voted that way in the past. they've also shown that they are willing to buck their party. their votes are critical in overturning the obamacare repealed. and so, democrats are really hoping that they can put republicans in the hot seat and make them be the one not to vote for the nominee. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has weighed in saying it would be easy to confirm raymond kethledge or thomas hartman. should that be a major air? >> they should be a major factor because he knows members better than anyone on this red states. it is not clear if the white house particularly the president who has been on and off relationship with mcconnell though it seems to be okay now will listen at how well he was
taken into account. the mcconnell knows his people. >> talking about the new york times piece but according to "the new york times," mcconnell expressed concern about judge rett kavanaugh's long paper trail. is that trump might like the fire. >> president trump likes a good fight. i have had sources point out to me that the paper trail this sheer volume of it because democrats can say look, we need more time to review it. there's multiple years basically that they can review and delay and that is kind of the tactic here other than keeping together, but it's a delay in push as close as they can to the midterm to push this out. eric: looking forward to seeing you back on the. thank you for your time. >> thank you turned secretary of state heading back after the
♪♪ and just like tyrone taylor, they know what it takes to help keep you protected. are you in good hands? >> secretary of state mike pompeo dismissing north korea, poland is denuclearization talks deeply regrettable and accusing the u.s. of making gangster like demands on the north. meanwhile, president trump is gearing up for its highly anticipated summit with vladimir putin one week from tomorrow in finland. the former state department senior adviser and senior fellow at the center for national interests. let's get right to it and asking you, are you surprised by north korean stonewalling and how much you care to raise the works that is in front of secretary of state mike pompeo?
>> not surprised at all by the response. this is actually really mild by north korean standards. pompeo accomplished everything he set out for this trip. he did want to go in a solvable thing if you add some details come up with the meat on the bones as to what the leaders agreed to in singapore and he did that. the working groups will meet frequently getting into the nitty-gritty. to get some of the remains of our service men out. things are going in the right direction. arthel: so the process. whether president trump tweet that it's no longer? >> you referenced a meeting of the minds between him and kim jong un. it's aspirational but that's the direction things are going. some of the very same evidence people are reading a lot into. things are still going in the right direction.
arthel: how do you think the senior state department official advisers are going to guide the president on his approach to this week's nato gathering? >> the state department establishment has its love affair despite the fact data was obsolete. the primary mission was to defend against the soviet union. it passed into history 27 years ago. trump understands that a lot better. i think he will push towards trying to get some of the cheapskate european countries to pay more. we essentially pay to defend europe and i think he will probably rely in his own counsel more than the state department. arthel: finale in finland or the president will meet one-on-one with russian president vladimir putin. which of the two presidents stands to gain the most from this meeting? >> the hope is they both come away feeling they've got something good. there's not a lot of room for
agreement on things like ukraine and crimea, but the part where we might achieve something. we want a serial without iranian influence. russia wants a serious for the ally putin remains in power which is going to be. that might actually be about rare issue that there is room for. arthel: is the president going to get tough and talked to vladimir putin face-to-face and say back off or whatever words he would like to use in terms of not meddling in these elections? >> you will do that. the russians to political activity as part of the intelligence operation. because they don't discuss that with their adversary. it's important to point out where russia spends on her influences in cleveland. donald trump will check the box and say don't do that. arthel: is it important that it backs the intelligence communities have confirmed russia muddled in the 2016 election and they are going to keep doing it.
it is a pretty big deal. >> a lot of countries try to influence our politics. but it was very minor. that's a frankly misleading statement because it had no real impact on our politics. arthel: we are not saying that hid the fact that they interfered was confirmed. >> i don't want to suggest u.s.a. and russia, but we conduct warfare operations against russia of funding review a few hundred for europe. i'm not saying we should stop. russia looks at that to cause some tension in the united states. throw some money in our social media with a couple hundred thousand, couple million. you could launch a soft drink. your budget would be 30 times more than russia supposedly spends. we just didn't have any real effect. trump should say don't do that and i'm sure he will. i think we have much more important things to talk about.
arthel: not a big deal. thank you. you might think from our fellow. >> we will talk to one congressman who will question him next. please don't, i'm saving those for later. at least you don't have to worry about renters insurance. just go to geico.com. geico helps with renters insurance? good to know. been doing it for years. that's really good to know. i'll check 'em out. get to know geico. and see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be. burning, pins and needles, of diabetic nerve pain these feet... ... made waves in high school... ... had a ball being a dad... ...and built a career in construction. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain.

will testify thursday. member of the house judiciary committee. thomas mann, good to see you. one of the first lawmakers to get a crack at peter stzrok. how forthcoming do you expect him to be this week? >> i hope will be forthcoming. it will be under oath and that's important part of all of this. this is a day of reckoning. the american people deserve to know the truth that an individual showing them to stand for then kenny trump who investigating and of course he was in charge of all of the clinton e-mails investigation. he claims the bias that he had had no effect on the direction of those investigations. we look at the chance to ask questions again under oath. >> what is your primary line of questioning for peter stzrok? >> well, we want him to further plainness. we had a closed-door hearing over a week ago at judiciary committee members and oversight committee members, but he was not under oath in that setting and to be frank, there were some
very evasive answers. his attorney and irving did not. so when this setting, all the american people build a watch and follow along and we believe he's going to have to be more direct. but the questions will be about this specific bias, what it did in terms of directing his decision about the investigation. he was at the top of the food chain so to speak and at the end of the day it's the integrity of the fbi that's been questioned by all of this. our institutions now have been questioned by the american people. >> congressman mike johnson, thank you very much for mr. arthel: that does it for us. we are back at 4:00 eastern. hope you can join us.
