3:01 am
center of city of christ church on the south island of new zealand. it went on five minutes. 41 people died. just one of those mosques. witnesses describe a heavily armed man dressed in black military style clothing. police also found two explosive devices fixed to a car and other weapons. now, the prime minister of new zealand has condemned she's shootings as a terrorist attack. >> this is one of new zealand's darkest days. clearly what has happened here is an extraordinary unprecedented act of violence. >> now new zealand police detained four suspects right after those shootings. one man has already been charged with murder. he has not been named but an australian man is being linked to the attack after claiming responsibility online. this man also wrote an anti
3:02 am
immigration manifesto and apparently posted a violent video of the attack online it is still circulating on social media. at least 20 people were injured in this shooting, too. they were rushed to hospitals for emergency treatment. police cordoned off the areas around the mosque. urging people to stay indoors for now. authorities are emphasizing that they do believe this is a one-off incident. they are not expecting any more attacks. certainly ramping up the security. this is a country very much in shock. they are not used to this level of violence at all. back to you guys. jillian: i was talking to a friend last night she lives in new zealand went to college with me. texting me and said we just had a massive terror attack before america even knew about it i was in the carpool line waiting to get my little girl from school. they rushed all the parents into the office. the little girl was in lockdown so she couldn't get to her daughter. she was so thankful she was in the school with the parents. her husband was on lockdown. we have never experienced anything like that. can you walk into their
3:03 am
schools their school doors aren't locked. brian: restrict gun laws you wouldn't expect anything like this to happen. the term immigration demeanor of this video the shooter either played a ton of video games he was laughing, calm, cool and collected as he was executing people who were unarmed. steve: well, he obviously wants notoriety because he live streamed it as kitty just said. the video has been taken down from facebook. it was 17 minutes in length. because he wants notoriety we are not going to use his face or name. but on the video you can see him driving through christ church in new zealand. just before he stops at the first mosque he says let's get this party started. he enters and fires. and then another part of the video shows bodies piled up inside. then he gets into a beige subaru station wagon and drives away. he says and you can hear his
3:04 am
voice he says there wasn't even enough time to aim there were so many targets. inside that mosque at the time were hundreds of people. ainsley: is he so hateful. if you read this manifesto he started planning it two years ago after the terror attack in stockholm on april 7th, 2017. that started off. he wanted to avenge the deaths of his people. he doesn't like how america is a melting pot of individuals. evidence thinks people need to stay in their homelands. he doesn't hate muslims in their home land and practice traditions in their own nations. brian: jim hanson on "fox & friends first." special operations operator. he has seen some of this up close and personal. >> it's hard to even imagine the mentality that decides i want to just not slaughter a bunch of people because of my obscene beliefs but i want to broadcast that to the world in the hopes of creating a race war, which was his avowed goal. and i think it's horrific. i think this is something
3:05 am
that unfortunately that we are going to seat damage that he has done to relations around the world. and i hope we can minimize that and not give him, you know, the advantage of having accomplished what his heinous goal was. steve: is he a man in his 20's from australia: none of the four were on any sort of terror watch list. brian: meanwhile yesterday, domestically, the president of the united states is going to be forced to use his veto for the first time as 12 republicans voted against his emergency order at the border to try to repurpose money in order to give us some type of border security. remember "the washington post," "new york times" admit in different ways in different columns with different reporters, there is a crisis at the border. humanitarian as well as just percentage wise the amount of people coming across whether it's drugs or ms-13
3:06 am
are bad actors. and the numbers are through the roof in terms of what our border patrol has been forced to deal with it didn't stop 12 republicans for deciding the president was out of bounds. ainsley: the white house is trying to keep the g.o.p. united that didn't happen. mitt romney says this is not about border security i'm for a border. this is about the balance of power. the president immediately retweeted at 3:16 p.m. once the vote came down he wrote veto with an exclamation point. i look forward to vetoing the just passed democrat inspired resolution which would open borders while increasing crime drugs and trafficking in our country. i thank all the strong republicans who voted to support the border security and all those desperately needed wall. he says we are doing this because of the constitution. congress is going to control the purse. you can't take money and
3:07 am
willy-nilly spend it. those are the 12 republicans that vote you had with the democrats. look, it's a tough call because when the leader of your party is for one thing and it is such a primary thing for this president, for them to say meh, you know, we are really strong about border security but the constitution is the reason we are going to vote against the leader of our party. they're going to have some splaining to do. ainsley: if you are a voter you want to know if that person represents you 12 senators are from your state. brian: meanwhile tom homan weighed in on what those 12 just did. >> these 12 senators, they should wear a border patrol uniform for one shift and come back and tell us there is not a national emergency. at love these republicans we don't want to back it up because we are afraid the democratic president in the future would do it. they have already done it
3:08 am
that's where daca came from. president trump went around congress and gave amnesty to 800,000 people. they have got to stop playing nice and support this president. brian: two most vulnerable in this upcoming election were concerned about their vote was tillis and gardner colorado and north carolina respectively. they both voted with the president on this. don't go crazy because look back in history ronald reagan vetoed 78 times. this would be the president's first. h.w., bush 41. 44. clinton 37, bush 43 at 12. barack obama had 12 as with. for president trump who has kept hills powder dry. everybody waiting for him t to. you called came over ben sasse and lindsey graham interrupted my dinner. he had a an idea. i didn't love the idea. therefore i will veto this thing. ainsley: the superlative goes to franklin d.
3:09 am
roosevelt vetoed 635 bills while in office. steve: when we saw that graphic. ronald reagan had the 78 vetoes. he was overridden nine times. george herbert walker bush 44 vetoes only overridden once. the big question is would there be enough votes in the senate to override the president. jillian: no, you need a two thirds majority. nonetheless, the house of representatives is going to take it up again on march 26th. they have a week off. they have been working so hard. they need another week vacation so when they come back on march 26th, this are going to go ahead and take another bite of the apple. brian: meanwhile beto o'rourke decided he wanted to run for president. number one if it's true the world is going to end in about 12 years we have to do what we did at normandy, watch. >> those who were on the beaches in normandy, those who face existential threat
3:10 am
to western democracy and our way of life, they showed us the way. we can all come together and unite and march for the resources and we can convene the countries of the world around otherwise unsolvable problems. that moment is now for us on this issue. so if there is a time to reassert global leadership and make friends instead of enemies it's today because the challenges are too great to do otherwise. steve: essentially, it's last call. we have got to do something to save the planet. i think it was yesterday nancy pelosi was asked about his greatest achievement in congress. and she could not name any single particular thing. said he brought a lot of vitality. he served on this committee. brian: vitality is good. steve: vitality is great. did not name a particular achievement. ainsley: he made the announcement yesterday morning and hit the campaign trail. several stops in iowa support for the green new deal. said man's final action to take on climate change
3:11 am
crisis. talked about food in this country will no longer prosper in these types of soils. massive migration of tens of millions of people from places uninhabitable or under the sea. brian: i guess he doesn't know we solved the crisis in new york with meatless mondays. having said that i asked secretary of state mike pompeo yesterday when it comes to climate change not knowing about the normandy, because i had to leave all my electronics outside the state department. not knowing about the normandy statement to compare it. to say i asked him when it comes to climate change, how big a deal? >> everyone is talking about global warming and the threat to this country. when you look at the top five threats of this nation. where do you rank global warming or climate change? >> yeah. i wouldn't put it in the top five. brian: why? >> because can i count to five the get you things that present more risks to the people i represented in kansas and citizens across america. whether it's the threat we talked about today from china, nuclear proliferation risk that extends from pakistan through all those folks who have these weapon
3:12 am
systems, places like north korea where they can sell these weapons. i think i'm at five already. but can i give you a list of threats that we can effect change on that will make a difference for the security of the american people. brian: goes to show you how different this country is going to be if a democrat wins. steve: it's a binary choice. very clear what the democrats stand for and what the republicans stand for. slate's josh voorhies writes regarding beto o'rourke of all the candidates he brings the least to the democratic party. we will compare how beto compares to kamala harris, bernie sanders, elizabeth warren. ainsley: joe biden if he gets in the race. steve: within half an hour. brian: talk about venezuela and china as well as. ainsley: north korea. and israel. brian: rocket attack right before we went in for the interview. ainsley: we will see the rest of that interview coming up. good job, brian. this video is coming. a smuggler using two little girls as dei havei decoys to get

fence and sneak around. if people think that every one of those 10 that snuck around is a good, decent person, they're living in a fantasy world. ainsley: we had tom homan on and he was saying that by the senate rejecting the president's plan. he said that's ridiculous, there is definitely a crisis down there and definitely an emergency. what are your thoughts? >> tom homan is absolutely right. he is a guy that's got a heck of a lot more experience on the border than i do. he is 100 percent right. what happened is they know, the politicians know this is a crisis. and what you are talking about, what we're talking about today is another example. so this was purely about politics. identity politics, political ideology. they know there is an issue at the border. they are failing to do their job. so if i had two seconds with the president, i would look him in the eye and say thank you, thank you for doing what other people have not done, have failed to do to protect our border. i absolutely hope he vetoes this. brian: mark, you said before in 15 minutes i could work this and change our policy
3:19 am

3:20 am
you know these people. what struck you, pun intended about peter strzok and his insurance policy? >> well, i will tell you, it went as someone who spent 20 years in the fbi, i was disgusted. it goes to the heart of everything that you should not be as a federal agent. they represented everything that is the antithesis of what fbi agents are i hope american people know the bad decisions made were done by a couple of people at the highest level. it was not done by the majority of the fbi. the fbi still believes in the american people and doing the right thing. brian: said don't touch the clinton foundation or hillary. even though his clear he had nothing against president trump. mark we will have you back. ainsley: thanks, mark. of the left is cheering gavin newsom for stopping the death penalty in his state but they still support late-term abortions. diamond and silk are here to call out the hypocrisy next.

police charging one man with murder overnight as normally peaceful nation remains on high alert. steve: kitty lo logan is following our story from our newsroom and joins us live. kitty? >> good morning, guys. well the shootings happened at two different mosques in the city o. the police saying these attacks were very well planned. the shootings started at around 1:45 local time. that's when the mosques are very biz with people attending friday prayers. the attack happened around five members. police say 41 people died at just one of those mosques.
4:01 am
many of the victims are thought to be refugees. witnesses say the gunman wore black military style. found two bombs in one car didn't go off they are being diffused. the prime minister has condemned these shootings as a terrorist attack. and police have since detained four suspects. they were arrested immediately after the shootings. one man in his late 20's has already been charged with murder. authorities have not named him but an australian man is being linked to the attack. this man also posted lengthy anti-immigration manifesto online in which he claimed responsibility. a graphic video of the shooting was also posted online. that has been removed but it is sadly still circulating. police say none of the suspects that they have detained so far were on any previous terror watch lists at least 20 people were in these shootings.
4:02 am
they were rushed to the hospital in these treatments. police have combed the area they are encouraged to stay indoors. that city remains in lockdown. new zealand hasn't seen a mass shooting or any kind of mass shooting in at least 40 years. this is the worst the country has ever seen. the security alert has now been heightened. for now the country remains in shock. back to you guys. steve: all right. kitty, thank you very much. you are right about the security being heightened. there are 1,000 police in new zealand and in the christchurch area and almost everybody, it's all hands on deck right now. they would hate to think that this was part of a coordinated attack right now it does not look like there was more than these people who were involved. right now only one man is charged with murder. but, you know, as she painted, he had this big manifesto that ainsley has in her hands. he wired up his cars. there were a couple of ieds on his cars and then live streamed the whole thing on facebook. went 17 minutes. we're not going to show the guy's face. we are not going to tell us his name. he want the note right.

we arnotoriety.we are not goingt to him. ainsley: he highlights questions that you at home might want to ask for. what are your wishes? what do you encourage us to do? he talks about socialism. left wing, right wing. birth rates. and he said he started planning this two years ago after the terror attack in stockholm. that set him off in 2017. he says this was to avenge the deaths of his people. he wasn't planning on doing this in new zealand until he visited some of the mosques in christ it's church and he says he sees that there is a problem there, too. basically he says he doesn't hate muslims if they stay in their countries and don't invade his land. brian: alexandria ocasio-cortez put this out in a tweet. at first i thought of saying imagine being told your house of faith isn't safe anymore but i can't say imagine because of charleston, pittsburgh and southern springs. what good are thoughts and prayers when they don't even keep the pews safe. so churches in new york you have to stand in line and it takes a very long time to get into the sanctuary

because they are using wands and metal detectors to make sure you don't have anything dangerous. steve: absolutely. apparently he was able to livestream this thing on facebook. facebook has taken it down. but it is floating around on the internet. apparently he had a grow pro o -- gopro-on his helmet. he turned it on when he headed to first mosque. you can hear him say let's get this party started. he pulled up and started firing and then he pulls away. we are getting into our newsroom right now some of the video where a hero cop actually pulls him out of his car. and we are going to be showing that to you very, very shortly. ainsley: tells you how sick he is he thinks murdering this many people is a party while they are in their mosques? steve: it's unbelievable. anyway, we will keep you posted on what is going on down in new zealand on this friday morning. brian: four minutes now after the hour. let's change gears and talk about what happened on capitol hill yesterday. in that immigration border
4:05 am
patrol action. the president is trying to get done it repurpose money in order to secure our border. so he did it and the senate went -- the house went ahead and said we are going to disapprove of this. and the senate did, too. by a counts of 59-41. with 12 republicans deciding they could not support the president on thi for constitutional reasons. i don't know one republican and if democrats were given truth serum i'm sure they would feel the same way. doesn't think there is a crisis or emergency at our border. the president tweeted this out. didn't go out for revenge or didn't rebuke or warn. i look forward to vetoing the just passed democrat inspired resolution which would open borders while increasing crime, drugs and trafficking in our country. i thank all the strong republicans who voted to support the border security and our desperately needed wall. steve: the night before, rand paul -- rather lindsey graham, ted cruz and ben sasse showed up unannounced at the white house. and the president was having a dinner. and they tried to talk him out of vetoing and instead adopt a compromise. and i'm told the president
4:06 am
was really steamed that they showed up and tried to talk him out of it i mean, this is one of his core issues. he has said there is a crisis at our southern border. and we have shown you, many people who are professionals who say exactly that and for these republicans, these dozen republicans to fly in the face of the leader of your party, you know, have you got to figure they are going it take some flack for people who voted for that. ainsley: you might want to know who these senators are if you live in those states. rand paul, lee. collins murkowski, alexander. rom my, more ran, toomey, portman, wicker, rubio and senator blunt. mitt romney says this about the constitution and. it's not border security because he does support a barrier. thom tillis was going to oppose and then changed his mind at the last minute republican from north carolina. he says he is sympathetic to the president's push. the president really wanted this measure -- he really
4:07 am
wanted to solicit emergency order supported by these especially republican senators but they weren't all on board. brian: worried about a democratic president that would want to do things that are against something a republican would want to do like do something emergency action on climate change and take some money from one pot and say hey president trump did that back in 2019. meanwhile, senator lindsey graham also a lawyer by trade before he got into politics said the president had every right to do this. >> to reject his decision that process is happening right now. the president will prevail. but i don't -- i don't think for a moment they are not sincere. i just disagree with their analysis and we're going to keep building the wall. >> means he is dead serious about building the wall. and if a republican or democrat gets in the way, he is willing to build a wall. ainsley: a lot of people might want to say the president is doing this and exercising his power i'm in charge.
4:08 am
don't forget that when you hear tom homan talk and he said no, the president really believes this is an emergency. he says i worked on the border. i know this is a crisis. i know that there is an emergency. when you see these images of people throwing children over the fence to distract the border guards so that smugglers and migrants can come through. that is an emergency. if you are a parent, imagine if that's your child? steve: keep in mind the president had the power to do what he is doing. what happens now now that they have approved this resolutions of disapproval. now it's going to go to the president's desk where he is going to sign it and going to be like i'm not going to sign that. that's bad for me. he is going to veto that and then what's going to happen next is he is going to take some of the money that he has already told us about, and he is going to say i'm going to use that to build the wall and then there will be a court challenge. this could take six months, it could take a year. it could take years. nonetheless, as he runs for president then, the president is going to be able to say look, i did everything i could. i even vetoed that thing. there were a bunch of republicans who voted
4:09 am
against me. i'm doing what i promised i would do, and that's why i'm fighting for that wall. brian: they are building portions of the wall. mark morgan was on with us earlier and said congress has failed. this is policy. not only barrier it's policy. listen. >> congress has failed to do its job to protect this border. the politicians know this is a crisis. this was purely about politics. identity politics. political ideology. they know there is an issue at the border. they are failing to do their job. so if i had two seconds with the president, i would look him in the eye and say thank you. thank you for doing what other people have not done and failed to do to protect our border. i absolutely hope he vetoes this. ainsley: some of these senators that voted with the democrats maybe their thought process is i want to follow the constitution and my opinion i feel like i have to follow the constitution and power of the purse rules. but, they still support the border wall. steve: sure. ainsley: still support the president. maybe they are doing that so they can go back and look at voting record when it comes
4:10 am
time for the election we did the right thing when it comes to the constitution. steve: president doesn't have to veto it he could use the 1.3 billion that congress has appropriated for the wall. plus, there is like $3 billion in a couple of funds at the pentagon and the treasury in accounts that can be tapped for an emergency declaration. ainsley: is he going to veto it. steve: he could do that. ainsley: vote came at 3/16 veto. brian: the republicans could have done this two years ago. steve: that's why the president says thanks paul ryan. brian: s10 minutes after the hour. thanks to jillian mele for showing up. jillian: happy friday. get to a fox news alert right now. we are following serious news. a rocket attack on tlaib may have been a mistake. israeli media defense forces saying the rockets may have been fired during routine maintenance. overnight israel retaliating

4:26 am
serving approximately 450 million households worldwide with 41 million twitter followers. so they have great reach in what they do that's why we picked those two first. ainsley: are more lawsuits on the way? >> absolutely. we will continue to roll out lawsuits about one a month. we anticipate that we will have 12 to 14 lawsuits total. after that we may look more broadly at people on twitter who attempted to dox nicholas sand man. steve: todd, there were a lot of people who went out when the video first went viral. they got the story wrong. they said your client got up in the face of the native personal and was mocking him. as we have seen in subsequent videos, that was not the case. he was simply standing there and the native american, mr. phillips, walked up to him. so you are suing people, organizations that put the story out there and never
4:27 am
corrected it. right? >> correct. i mean, first off, we think that people that went with the initial unsourced video which had gone viral. they did so without any reasonable reporting. some organizations, their reporting evolved but, for example, with cnn, while their reporting evolved, they did not report the entire truth. and they have never apologized or retracted for the lies that they put forth in their reporting. ainsley: todd, i remember when you guys when all of this was unfolding you said, look, this story has not been told accurately. but if you come out and you apologize and get the story straight, then we won't sue you. has anyone afollo apologized or came out and said look, we are sorry, we didn't know the whole story when we reported it? >> no one has actually apologized to nicholas sandman. "the washington post" put forth an editor's note that did not apologize. it merely corrected the reporting but was inadequate. as we go forward, we will
4:28 am
give media organizations an opportunity to retract and apologize as allowed by kentucky law. steve: um-huh. >> but so far no one has apologized. steve: todd, finally, ultimately, you are trying to send a message here, aren't you? these are gigantic sums of money you are asking for. >> correct. we put out a video which is called nicholas vs. the media giants. that video really proposes the following ideas. one that nicholas sandmann is absolutely innocent. number two, that all of us in this country have a shared mutual interest in having media that reports accurately and, three, that through this lawsuit with nicholas sandmann that we intend to hold the media giants accountable. it is a david and goliath fight. but we do intend to fight it. ainsley: okay. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: president trump set to veto the measurable blocking his emergency declaration for the border. congressman adam kinzinger was just deployed to the border and says the smj

4:33 am
thanks for being here. what's your reaction to this. >> it's terrible. attack somebody because of their faith at a place of worship it's especially disheartening. i was in new zealand a year ago now and it's not a place you would expect to see anything like this. thoughts and prayers. we mean it. please pray for. brian: aoc says don't say thoughts and prayers. >> when she said that it doubles down my determination. prayer and faith means something. and i think even though we may all have different faiths. let's all stand together at this moment. steve: what do you make of the fact that this guy was able to livestream on facebook for 17 minutes up on capitol hill you are constantly talking about the social media giants and what they're putting out there. the fact that he would be able to do that he want the notoriety and he showed the carnage. it's shocking? >> it gives me chills because it's one of the areas our committee is trying to deal with is what's the balance between your freedoms, your ability
4:34 am
to do what you want on social media versus people that try to seek fame or notoriety through something like this. i mean, we remember elderly man that was killed on livestream because somebody wanted to do it and i don't know how to get ahold of this. but we have got to get to a society where people quit trying to chase this thing, this hollow fame whether it's through horrible actions. be confident in how are. go ahead with your life and this is just incredibly evil. ainsley: that's why we don't want to use his name. i have a friend who lives over there. we were texting last night. in their school system you just walk right in a school. we see those changes here on our campuses because of terrorist attacks that we have had here in the united states. is this going to change the way they do in new zealand now. >> we don't wish it on anybody. that's the point. whether you have evil folks. whether they are white supremacists or islamic terrorists that see an opportunity to kill innocent people comes into their mind. they do it. brian: ambassador scott brown is going to be joining
4:35 am
news 40 minutes from new zealand and former senator from massachusetts. here is what sarah huckabee sanders has just put out a statement from the white house. >> brian: meanwhile the president was occupied yesterday with was really a rebuke a rebuke of his effort to use emergency funds. repurpose funds in order to do massive border security. 41 senators voted with him. 59 didn't. if you were in the senate, how would you have voted? >> i would have voted with the 41. i think the president has the right to a national emergency. i think it was the right thing to do. that's how i voted in the house. i saw it. i was on the border with the military for two weeks. the cartel makes money on two products. people and drugs. human trafficking and drug trafficking. and that's what's coming over the border. i saw it on almost every mission evidence of human and drug trafficking. that's got to stop. they are a prime enemy of
4:36 am
the united states, the assaults they are committing on women. the violence in the communities. it's evil. and i think the president is right to secure the border. i wish, i understand wrestling that every senator has to go through but i think the. brian: constitution. i think one republican believes it's not a crisis. >> i get it. i understand it the president is well within his rights on this. he didn't create new money out of thin air he just repurposed money from, perhaps counter drug to a counter drug operation. ainsley: what do your friends say i know what they say on camera. they don't support the president. they don't say it's a crisis. they say it's manufactured. do they really believe that when they see the video. >> it's amazing when i came back and started sharing my experience. i'm not here to convince anybody. i just want to tell you what i saw. people would actually question whether i saw what i saw. so, at that point i'm like, obviously you can't win. i will be honest to who i am and tell you what i saw. steve: congressman, you know that before donald trump, nobody ever had the
4:37 am
argument. a wall doesn't work. now, of course, it's big, it's inefficient. it doesn't work. >> they all voted for it 12 years ago. this isn't your dad's democratic party anymore. this is a whole different democratic party. this is the one where half of them sit on their hands when the president says we won't be socialist. that can never be imagined even three years ago. steve: why is that? >> it's a rush to the left. it is -- it's sad. brian: one thing democrats and republicans agree on 5 g. we have to be the one that pioneer 5 g if the chinese and huawei are able to do it especially with they have a back door with intelligence. question whether we will give our intelligence to our allies in that way. i asked the secretary of state that about 5 g why we should care and why our allies aren't listening to us. >> you told the polls, you told the germans do not do a deal with huawei. it's about 5 g. it's about security. it looks like they are going through it any way. what would happen if both of our allies decide to go with the chinese company to lead the way on 5 g?
4:38 am
>> huawei and chinese telecommunications equipment n 1's network and the nation's network presents a real risk that the chinese government will have access to data that no american wants them to have. we have urged these countries to reconsider these policies. review this as being threatening to their security. we told them if you put this technology in your equipment. it will make it incredibly difficult for the united states to work alongside you in some of these places. brian: what don't they get? >> i don't know. the secretary is obviously really smart on this stuff. you cannot share information with allies whether you have a basically trojan horse infrastructure by your chief enemy. that's the situation we are looking at. they are giving it to you cheap for a reason. there is a reason huawei is the cheapest stuff throughout because they get something for it. steve: right. too bad a u.s. company couldn't just be leading the way. they are ahead of us right now. >> that's right. steve: congressman, thank you very much. ainsley: and thanks for your service. brian: i will talk to you on radio. >> yes. brian: jillian, the ball is yours. are you ready for it.
4:39 am
jillian: i am ready for it. a georgia senate committee hears emotional testimony on the controversial heart beat bill. the legislation would ban abortions after a woman is six weeks pregnant or when a fetal heart beat is found. >> a parent said even if her child is blind and deaf our child has value. our child's value is not lost simply because they are sick. jillian: opponents are concerned the bill will not stop abortions but instead force women to seek unsafe illegal procedures. the measure heads to the senate for approval. brian kemp has already pledged to sign it several 11 calls released of amazon employees committing suicide inside warehouses. a former amazon worker revealed to our tucker carlson about the trouble she faced while working there. >> i mentioned something about driving my car off of eagle mountain dam because i was more -- worth more dead than i was alive.
4:40 am
that's the kind of mindset that they put you in is you are not important. jillian: alan says the make up time bathroom break to receive full day's pay. a california college is ending its only study abroad program with israel. and democratic congresswoman rasheda tlaib is backing the decision. students at pitser college dispansding the university change entry restrictions along with granting visas with palestinian universities. programs to other countries like china, turkey and cuba. are still running. recently tlaib was caught holding a folder with the #suspend pitzerhifa. brian: has a grandmother are in gaza. steve: damp start to the day. janice: look at the crowd i have me today. happy friday.

newlyweds from el paso, texas. >> hi. >> hi mom. janice: look at this over here have you every single book that any fox personality has ever come out with unbelievable. thank you. and hi, how are you? >> i'm good. >> good. thank you for coming. take a look at the maps real quick. i will show that you cold front that's moving through new york city. we have 52. cooler air behind it. this is what that bomb cyclone brought us. severe weather yesterday, hundreds of reports of hail and damaging winds. a couple of tornadoes. the cold front moves through today. we will get colder air. maybe some snow across the great lakes. you know what? first day of spring comes next week, my friends. that's a pretty good deal, right? okay. say hi to everybody at home. big waves to all these beautiful people who came out at 7:30 on "fox & friends." >> [cheers] steve: going to be up to 60 something here today. ainsley: yesterday was nice, too. steve: thank you, j.d. brian: 18 minutes before the top of the hour. lawmakers keep resisting theresa may's plan for brexit. what's going on? even though the people voted to leave the eu.
4:42 am
nigel farage came up with the idea i think. it's a warning for democrats trying to undermine president trump. is he here to explain next. ainsley: beto mania is running wild over the media. is it a preview of what to expect in 2020? >> he has had a glowing start. >> seeing him is like a jesus christ super star seeing this guy in front of people. he has that celebrity ora. there's brushing...and there's oral-b power brushing. oral-b just cleans better. even my hygienist said going electric could lead to way cleaner teeth. and unlike sonicare, oral-b is the first electric toothbrush brand accepted by the ada. oral-b. brush like a pro. cancer, epilepsy, mental health, hiv. patients with serious diseases are being targeted

steve: lawmakers continue toll debate over brexit the british exit. the lane britain's dee dee par temperature from the eu. the debate with bring that country apart. >> how badly negotiated. i think it could have been negotiated in a different matter. i night see everything will
4:46 am
be ripped apart. steve: nigel farage independent leader. he joins us from london. nigel, why is it so hard for your country to figure out to do. this your people said although it was close let's get out of the eu and yet you still have it. >> yeah. you are right. we unequivocally voted to leave and we are due to leave two weeks today. and the problem is hundreds of our members of parliament didn't only vote the other way but have never ever respected the result and are doing their best to overturn it, to frustrate it and in the middle of all of, this theresa may has made the most unholy mess of the thing by putting on the table a document that is completely unacceptable. so we should, under our law, leave in two weeks' time without a deal, without a new treaty and that's fine. but parliament now says it
4:47 am
wants to extend the date. this is one of the oldest functioning democracies in the world. and our democracy is being walked all over it is one of the most shameful episodes in the history of my country. shepard: and i know theresa may. she didn't want to see brexit. she didn't want to see the british exit from the eu. and now she is in a pickle because now she has got to preside over figuring out how to untangle. do you see any parallels, nigel, between what is happening in your country regarding getting out of the eu and here in this country and the political left's reaction to donald trump? >> absolutely. it's the same game. you know, both brexit and trump were huge, seismic shocks in the political arena. and just as our mps here don't accept brexit, many of them want to stop it or overturn it in america. we have large sections of the media and of the left who do not accept the legitimacy of this president. do not believe he could
4:48 am
possibly have won by fair means. come up with endless conspiracy theories about russia or whatever else it may be. i think the parallels are remarkable. the old globalist order is not enjoying this massive democratic revolution. steve: since the british exit vote, nigel. have there been public opinion polls? have the people of great britain changed their mind? we said yes but now maybe it's a bad idea? >> absolutely not. and, in fact, by far the most popular option is for us to leave in two weeks' time with no deal. but the prime minister, the prime minister appears to be very reluctant to do that. the house of commons doesn't want us to do that. in the end, it's up to our prime minister. if she was bold and brave, we could still leave in two weeks' time. but i'm afraid she is buckling to political pressure and it looks like there is going to be a delay to brexit. and that's going to make this country very, very
4:49 am
angry indeed. steve: nigel, you have a mess on your hands. >> we have got a mess on our hands because our politicians do not accept the will of the people. that is the basic problem. i will tell you something. if worse comes to worse and they make us fight this battle again, we will win next time by an even bigger margin. steve: well, the world is watching to figure out what happens next. nigel farage joining us now from london. nigel, thank you very much. thank you, sir. meanwhile, the media falling in love with beto o'rourke all over again. >> he has had a glowing start. >> seeing him is like a jesus christ superstar seeing this guy in front of people. he has that celebrity aura. >> well, is this a preview of what is to come in 2020? we will talk about this his media buzz. plus geraldo rivera and ed henry both in the 8:00 hour of "fox & friends" live from new york city. ♪ ♪

4:54 am
>> thank you, ainsley. ainsley: what do you say he is excites people shakes it all up and jesus christ superstar and celebrity aura. >> it's crazy. when you run for president you are supposed to be a man or woman of the people not a man of the press. and that's exactly what beto is doing. unfortunately for him, the press is not representative of the voting base in america but the press is certainly working overtime to give him flattering coverage of his rollout which to be honest wasn't that impressive with an online video and a vanity fair cover. so, i think, you know, they are treating his rollout which is a serious thing and a very unserious way by fawning all over him and the unfortunate part of this is that distracts from the fact that we don't actually know where beto o'rourke actually stands on most of his policy positions because when he was a member of congress, he was actually quite moderate voting with president trump 30% of the time even on border security legislation.
4:55 am
and now he is out there acting like this far left progressive and americans don't know where he is. ainsley: here is some of his positions anti-border wall, voted against ice. voted against kate's law. voted against trump tax cuts. supports single payer healthcare. voted on restrictions against late term abortions voted against sanctioning iran and called law enforcement the new jim crow. the media was fawning all over him when he was running against ted cruz and he lost that senate seat. what is it about him that they love? he wasn't able to win texas and win that senate seat and doesn't have much experience? >> they, for some reason, think that beto is the next barack obama, which is just not true. because beto does not have the experience that obama had. ainsley: what if biden gets in? >> i think he will give beto a run for his money. i wouldn't be surprised in the future to see a biden beto ticket. in that rollout video beto
4:56 am
said if immigration is a problem in america it's the best problem we have. and i think that is incredibly insulting to all the angel moms, families that have lost loved ones due to illegal immigration. beto lives in el paso on the border. and i think that it's really unfortunate that he is not taking some of these policy issues more seriously and taking into account both sides. ainsley: okay, kelsey, thank you for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. breaking news overnight 49 people dead after that terror attack in new zealand. president trump tweeting about it just a few moments ago. reaction to the u.s. ambassador to sneel new zealand scott brown in the next hour. urke) hit and drone. seen it, covered it. we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two. ..
4:57 am
only by olay.
4:58 am
4:59 am
>> this is one of new zealand's darkest days. clearly what has happened here is an extraordinary and
5:00 am
unprecedented act of violence. >> straight are fox news alert, 49 people dead after gunfire erupts inside two mosques. >> donald trump tweeted his condolences. in part, he wrote my warmest simply and best wishes go to the people of new zealand after the horrible massacre. the us standby new zealand or anything we can do. god bless all. let's go to kitty logan in london with the breaking developments. >> two separate mosques in the city of christchurch in new zealand, these attacks were well-planned. at 1:4:05 pm local time, the mosques are busy with people attending friday prayers. we one people died in the attack, one described the scene.
5:01 am
>> shooting after shooting after shooting. 6 minutes or more. i could hear screaming and crying and i saw some people dropped dead. >> two bonds fixed to a car which didn't go off. they obtain four suspects after the shootings as well. one man in his late 20s was charged with murder. authorities of not named the suspect but an australian man is being linked to the attack, a lengthy manifesto in which he claims responsibility. a graphic video of the attack was later removed. he said none of the suspects were on any kind of terror watch list.
5:02 am
at least 20 people were injured in these attacks and rushed to hospitals for emergency treatment. police cordoned off the area surrounding the mosques urging people to stay indoors. it is nighttime in new zealand and the remainder locked down and these shootings have international condemnation. donald trump says the us standby new zealand after what he described as horrible massacres and the white house added a statement, the united states strongly condemns the attacks in christchurch. our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. we stand in solidarity with the people of new zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate. new zealand is on high alert but police reassured the public they don't believe there is a further attack planned but this is a shock for a very quiet and normally peaceful nation. >> let's bring in geraldo rivera. when you heard this news what was your reaction?
5:03 am
>> my first reaction was to feel like i felt on the day of the tree of life massacre, the synagogue last year, october. in the sutherland springs church massacre the year before that. these are sitting ducks, people who are praying, targets that have no defense. there are more murders in new zealand this morning than there were in the course of an entire year. the manifesto seems to indicate this crazy mass murdering theme, motivated by the immigration crisis. he said he is a white nationalist, immigration is as hot an issue there is a was here or in great britain.
5:04 am
it was one of those things, multiple perpetrators apparently if those reports are true. ieds attached to the perpetrator's vehicle. this was a butcher out to get a butcher's bill. there were three or four perpetrators, very serious attack, all white nationalists, and escalation of violence that is horrifying. >> four have been arrested. one man, a guy in his 20s was charged with murder. what does it say about him or our culture that not only would he kill all these people, there were hundreds waiting, he said there wasn't any time to aim, there were so many targets. he didn't just kill the people that had to do it on social media. he had ago pro on his helmet and walked in and live streamed on
5:05 am
facebook for 17 minutes. why was that? >> there is this seth exultation, look at me, look at what i am doing, they are so nutty, beyond the pale of human experience, people who see human life as like a set piece, like scenery for their social media, live streaming, 17 minutes for the new zealand cops who are often unarmed, to respond to the scene. i always go back to the -- i would never have people in one place like that vulnerable witht somebody with a gun to protect them. they are too vulnerable.
5:06 am
in this case white genocide, he invokes immigration killing us, donald trump is a symbol of renewal of white identity, sick stuff that i'm so glad the president of the white house so strongly condemned. they are the spirit on the bottom of your shoe. these are horrible horrible people that would invoke any cause to perpetrate these massacres that have no place in human existence. >> we will talk to scott brennan in a moment about that but to a major scandal in america, this college admissions scandal. we are seeing the fallout. lori laughlin is not only in trouble legally but lost her job at hallmark. her two daughters, olivia jade and isabella left usc. what is your reaction to the scandal and the lawsuit against
5:07 am
the colleges for in adequately screening admissions? >> let me apologize to ainsley for calling her allison. i've been so traumatized by this awful news. rich people in a very arrogant way have been promoting their children. there's nothing wrong with that generally speaking but this is where the wealthy go beyond promoting their children and giving them a leg up. this is where you gain the system, cheaper system, by off coaches to save the child, the child does not play, it is a perversion, criminality, humiliation for the children. the children are complicit. their lives are wrecked, their lives are ruined. they are marred by this forever.
5:08 am
>> speaking of the children, what should happen to the children? should they be thrown out of colleges? a majority of them did not know what their parents were up to. >> it is a case-by-case basis, you got to see what the kids knew and when they knew it, where they minored at the time their parents perpetrated these gigantic rods. is it probable? is it likely they had no idea what was happening? as the prosecutors indicate if there were cases where proctors set alongside the child and took the act or act for the child or corrected their answers during the test. >> if your parents steal a car and give it to you and find out your parents stole a car and you can't keep the car they got to get kicked out. these two expelled themselves but there is no way those kids got there under false offices
5:09 am
get to stay. >> i think about a couple things. if they're really wealthy and donated jim to $10 million circuit walks in -- >> the old-fashioned way. if the gym is big enough. i think about all the negative attention affirmative-action has been given because of being from a racial minority and i think how unfair they have been pilloried by critics who say they snuck their way to college because of race and don't deserve to be here. when you look at these privileged kids from the coasts whose parents were well-known to us, thought it was okay to get into an elite college by committing a crime. it pales in comparison.
5:10 am
it undermines your faith. i understand why stanford university kids filed these class-action lawsuits against perpetrators, defendants in a massive civil federal probe. they devalued the worth of your diploma. they have undermined, people worked so hard, my dad begged me to get an education, he said go to school. i was the first one in my entire generation of all my cousins to go to college. college is the great equalizer but when you see how college becomes nothing more than a scam just like other scams, so disheartening, so embarrassing, they are aware of this black mark forever. like the obviously different
5:11 am
events, like what happened in new zealand, this is the harbinger of more to come. this is the beginning, now 50 families, they will be 500, 5000. >> colleges are changing the way they do this, they might have committees that decide. thank you, geraldo, have a good weekend. >> i am sure jillian feels as strongly. jillian: this urgent manhunt is intensifying for a gunman who shot a cop in montana. the suspect is carrying an ar 15 and opened fire while the officer was investigating another shooting. the officer is currently in critical condition. another fox news alert, a rocket attack may have been a mistake. israeli media quoting defense forces saying the rockets may have been fired during routine maintenance. overnight israel retaliated with

1:17 a.m. and more to follow tomorrow. they cost the guy, one of the guys. we will see what happens tomorrow. >> we had similar situations and how that changed our laws and security measures. you expect to see the same now in new zealand? >> hard to say. they have always been diligent on their tariff even though they have a natural border with the ocean, a lot of things happening here, human drug and child trafficking, they work hard at it. they have the ability to do it and do it well. i have been impressed with the response, the quick response of the police force and the prime minister's team. we will learn who this person
5:19 am
was. rob: how do you describe the gun laws in new zealand? how do they view guns? does every home have one? does anyone have one? >> 1.4 million guns here and a lot of it is for bonds. they have to deal with natural issues bonds deal with. i haven't noticed any particular threats with regard to guns. they will do whatever they do but right now they are really focusing on gathering the facts. you did the introduction and i apologize. only 14,000 -- pete: what we heard from the authorities, none of these people who have been arrested were on any watchlist.
5:20 am
it looks like twitter had images with names scrawled across them including the names of two mass shooters, it seems there were clues out there. hindsight is 2020. >> we were talking about the issue. buzzwords or threats, do they go to a different filter? i don't know. we have free press, freedom of speech, got to balance the right to know versus the right to freedom of speech. it is always a balancing act. i remember that. we will see what happens. it will be a real challenge. pete: which we could hear from

5:27 am
>> 16-year-olds in many states can buy guns, lease apartments, drive vehicles. we give them lots of responsibilities. why we wouldn't allow them to vote, work and pay taxes that many adults do under certain circumstances. many countries particularly in latin america, in votes for them. why we wouldn't want more people involved in voting to me doesn't make much sense at all. pete: why have a voting age? whoever shows up can just vote. i am being facetious. what do you think of jason's argument? >> i'm not familiar with any 16-year-olds are able to marry or rent apartments. the truth -- >> you can do that --
5:28 am
>> very few are. looney tunes is one of the favorite programs of 16 yours and that is what the democratic party has become especially what you know is used to get more power as they usually do. the fact of the matter is the voting age was lowered only after eisenhower said if these folks are old enough to fight at 18 they should be all enough to vote and there was a voting rights act in 1965 when next and signed into law and the supreme court declared unconstitutional and the supreme court was ratified and given that right. and to have 18-year-old provision than those who need help from mom when told to brush their teeth. >> they were to get more voters aligned with them.
5:29 am
>> if republicans want to challenge, and 16-year-olds to join the republican party. these were open-minded young people. if they want to challenge vote instead of suppressing votes whether it is young people are people of color they need to go out nationally and recruit new voters. pete: you get the final word. >> the fact of the matter is those 16-year-olds realize they need to be 18 in order to vote, they don't have personal responsibility and the sensitivity of the vote should be a privilege and honor to be up to vote, not something to throw around to anybody. pete: we will see what happens. >> voting is a right, not a privilege. >> it is a right.
