>> knowing the history of brett cavanagh and his political experience. over 12 years, and what people want to hear at home. >> senator cory booker trying to use late wednesday night confidential documents to question the nominee and senator harris making an accusation he had an inappropriate conversation about the mueller probe. it does appear big names we are hearing for the 2020 presidential campaign, using whatever they can to attack this nominee but doesn't touch on his legal record. even documents cory booker was
using, that actually goes to brett kavanaugh's advantage because he was advocating a race neutral security policy following 9/11. >> he was there for 13 hours over two days, 24 hours, really unbelievable and confirmation hearings wrap up possibly, where do we go from here? >> interesting witness democrats will put on today is the guardian ad litem for the minor who sought an abortion during the court case and it was brett kavanaugh who voted not to allow her to obtain one. one witness we hear from, then after that, senator grassley, the committee next thursday, minority party gets a hold of that. brett kavanaugh being voted out of committee.

failing new york times by gutless coward. heather: jim henson says the op-ed is proof the media is trying to undermine the government, he joined us to explain next. ♪ anything but typical. that's why we designed capital one cafes. you can get savings and checking accounts with no fees or minimums. and one of america's best savings rates. to top it off, you can open one from anywhere in 5 minutes. this isn't a typical bank. this is banking reimagined. what's in your wallet?

in montana. >> the latest act of resistance is the op-ed published in the failing new york times. for the sake of our national security the new york times should publish his name. heather: the author who claims to be a white house official says he is working to stop the president's agenda but isn't this proof there's internal resistance to our duly elected government? here is jim henson, thank you for joining us, appreciate it. let's begin with the op-ed, this anonymous person says many senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. i would know, i one of them. you were very vocal on twitter about this so i wanted you to have an opportunity to talk about it. it is unbelievable.
>> it is not many administration officials but there is a small and determined group of people who want to substitute their own judgment for the will of the american people. undermining the lawfully elected authority and government of the united states they not be treason but is seditious light, this is an admission these people are doing that and calling for more people to join them. it is disgraceful and as milania trump at lease at it is a cowardly act of someone who should have the guts to stand up and name himself and say i refuse to serve if this is the case. heather: i thought by the end of yesterday we would know who had done this. i'm surprised we don't know yet. a threat to national security? >> it is a threat to the lawful government for sure. our national security is
probably damaged depending where this person works but we have no idea if this is a senior official or journalistic definition people like the new york times want to use which is someone who works in government above intern level. i don't think it is an important person, the senior people in the trump administration denied this but someone who knows better and is trying to rally to create the trump russia farce, this witchhunt to undermine him when he was a candidate through the transition and as he tried to govern. this is not the way american government is supposed to operate. heather: you have to look at the timing of this. why would this have been put out at the time it was, what else was going on that was the reason behind this? >> i think we have an election coming up, there is a midterm coming up and this is something the left which the new york
times is a propaganda organ of thought would be helpful to democrat candidates, they miscalculated because this is showing the american people what the president said is true. there is a state and the resistance and they are trying to undermine our government. that is not something the american people leave in and no one has seen actual crime. what we have seen is a lot of things the president has done that the left doesn't like but the american people who elected him wanted him to do. that is not a reason to commit malfeasance at best against the president of the united states. heather: the person who wrote this assume they are going to come forward, should the new york times release who put this together, what should the president do in terms of outing him or her? >> the other journalists if they had any integrity would decide this is not the way they are supposed to operate, find out who it is. if this with any other
president, there would be a massive hunt underway and every resource would be brought to bear. it is someone they disagree with, someone the press in most cases is behind the resistance, support them, work with them and this is collusion between the new york times and the resistance to do something no one should be doing to a duly elected official. heather: getting tired of it. we appreciate it. see what happens next. reaction pouring in, burt reynolds passed away at the age of 82, the legendary actor known for historian role in smokey and the bandit and the longest sure. >> first shot. i don't like this any more than you do. not going to make it, sir. hanging it up.

say good for them. i will be doing my part in not supporting the nike committee, einstein saying a good decision to a company that encourages unity, not polarizing, this i continue to hurt america. nike free to hire whoever they want, and all different responses. have a great weekend. the time is 20 minutes until the top of the hour. slipping on ice two month ago, democrat running for office said she supports abolishing the agency. >> to clarify you do support abolishing ice? >> i would. heather: the change of heart she is having. burning patriotism cells, veterans firing back at nike and colin kaepernick.
heather: employers struggling with a skilled worker shortage and not because of the pain. here with more on how they are trying to fill the void. >> talking about local contractors in southern florida trying to fill up construction jobs, starting pay $75,000 a year with full benefits, pension plans, trying to get skilled workers for these jobs but the bureau of labor estimating there are currently 243,000 open construction jobs nationwide ranging all the way from the bottom up. project administrators to project executives. the reason for this lack of
workers, people leaving the construction industry, trying to replace those workers but if you are looking for a job there are construction jobs available, you don't need a college education, pay is great. heather: good news, let's talk about this facial recognition, scanners are placing border passes. i'm seeing some of this coming. >> reporter: this will replace boarding passes for international travelers. they unveiled the new system at dulles international airport. this is to speed up the process getting people in and out of those lines but you are going to take a picture, your face is going to be scanned and that picture will be matched with the collection by customs and border protection agency, matching what is on your passport and visa and passed through the line here but there are concerns that if these pictures are misused if they get into the wrong hands, is this an
intrusion of privacy, this is starting at washington dollars airport. this could be expanding. heather: we heard their faces used with someone else as well. showing sacrifice. an army veteran calling out nike's new ad proving patriotism cells. are the real heroes on the front lines not taking a knee on the sidelines? our panel weighing in next. these folks, they don't have time to go to the post office

a sign how the season will shape up. armed services reserves veteran, liberal and most have the a rule and author of the new book why i stand. are you surprised everyone is standing pretty much? >> not really. i am waiting for policy to be unveiled. have to wonder about standing up. nfl has not decided whether they want to focus or bring politics into it. the policies from the nfl, make sure players stand and not put this in front of everybody.
heather: i have two kathys here. what did you think here, were you surprised? >> not too surprised. jerry jones said his team is not allowed -- heather: america's team is not allowed to kneel. of america's team can't do it this might be a trend that other teams will follow suit but we don't know. until the union and nfl decides what to do about this. colin kaepernick lost everything as he said. heather: he is doing pretty well now. >> he was riding the bench prior to this and was on his way out the door. he hasn't sacrificed anything. as we were talking about the nike situation, going forward we can expect to see what we have already seen. maybe they are playing nice right now but as we go on through the season we can expect
to see nfl owners continue to lack courage to protect their brand and nfl players to continue to push the false narrative of racism on the rest of the country and see some corporations try to take advantage would exploit the division in the nation for a profit because that is what we are seeing nike do. heather: is that what nike is doing? >> that was spot on. we are dealing with globalists. they had their international brand, they don't mind being the brand to be attractive to other countries where they want to move. same with the nfl. 80 other nations, to make sure that happens, corporations man up and decide what to do with
these players so they are not demeaning their brand and hurting their career. heather: you are shaking your head. >> most americans side with colin kaepernick. most americans believe in freedom of speech and the first amendment. this is the american way. >> most americans are patriots, recognize this false narrative -- it is a false narrative when you look at facts. talking to a liberal with sloppy thinking and pushing nonsense and reject reality. there is a white police officer standing waiting to shoot a black man.
facts just don't add up. when you look at fbi statistics and what is going on in the black community, what is decimating the black community is not white police officers but black on black crime, poor education, black jobs is what we should be talking about that matters in this is what our president is doing. as the economy continues to improve those who feel disenfranchised will begin -- heather: the other side of the coin is patriotic apparel company releasing just stand t-shirt countering nike's colin kaepernick add. do you believe nike signed colin kaepernick because of some overwhelming feeling they believe in what he believes in or are they all about money? >> not a good relationship. i think it is about history. nike and colin kaepernick will be on the right side of history and this other company and trump are on the wrong side of history. people care about social issues.
nike is not dumb. a very know what they are doing and are strategic but at the end of the day they know people want to take chances, serena williams and many people, colin kaepernick -- heather: last word. >> nike cares less about the black and even profits. they try to get slave labor to make their brand. every single generation does the best they can, more hopeful, more excited and produce more for themselves than the last. this is the first iteration we are telling kids -- that is the left. at the end of the day, making this work, $1 million a year because the white men won't let them is not the way my parents taught me. they need to learn our history
