3:18 am
was written off. that feels a lot like who won in 2016. right out of the bat bernie has a core of supporters, he's run nationwide already and that gives him a base that the other candidates don't have. >> and the republican nominee in 2016 had a clear and consistent message. >> when you run for president the first time really, you know this, when you interview people, the first time they say something they can ramble, it isn't very clear. they're trying to find their message. first-time candidates do that all of the time. not bernie sanders. you can't argue about the fact that the know what is to say and when to say it and that gives him a leg up on these other people who will be making gaffes. >> you were watching other candidates find their footing. he's clear about what he believes. the third reason, he's already
3:19 am
run a nationwide campaign. >> it's really hard to run a campaign nationwide. you have to set up organizations throughout the country and that's not easy to do. it takes a lot of manpower, takes money. but he's already done it once. and like i said in the early primary state of california, he has a good organization already. so whereas the other candidates, some of which will have to skip the states because they don't have the money. not bernie. >> it's a crowded field of candidates. couldn't that hurt him because there are other people trying to take his socialist message? >> it's an interesting thing. we have to look at it from the opposite point of view here. since early has the early committed voters, 15%, 20% of the electorate, that's enough in a crowd field to win a primary. he could win iowa with 20% whereas a biden or someone else, kamala harris may only get 20%.
3:20 am
all of those other people running take away from joe biden potentially and from harris. i think he wins iowa, wins new hampshire and what are they going to say, bernie, you can't lead? >> last point. you say running for president is different. why? >> it's 100% different. in 2000 you had to have a lot of money and a strong organization. now you have the internet and twitter. bernie has a audience out there. bernie's people are committed. >> we shall see. >> hey's the oarl front runner, i think he wins ohio and new hampshire. >> i agree with you. whe meanwhile, outrage grow.

4:04 am
joe biden who kind of accidentally kind of said that he might be in the race. >> as of right now there are 13. here's the list. she's the latest and greatest. you see them, you know them, you may or may not love them but there they are stepping up saying we're in. this is luck by 13 and there will be more. >> that's interesting because she's had a rough start even before this because he was testing the waters. can't get democrats from her home state on board. is that because people in her own delegation don't want to support her. and number two, remember how she made her name in recent years, it was by taking down one of her own over allegations of either sexual harassment or misconduct. and then in the last week or so this story popped saying that her own office in the senate didn't handle an allegation of sexual harassment well. and it was a big controversy. so if she wants to go attack

coconstituency for him. >> he's going to be accosted. he's going to have the video that goes viral where they're in his face asking him something and he's got to ask himself, do i want to do this. >> he can make a strong case that he was riding spot gun with barack obama, the nation's first black president and there by his side and was not an accidental vice president. he was in the room pushing on obamacare, pushing on all kiengdz of issuekindsof issues . beto o'rourke has been struggling a little bit. nancy pelosi had the struggle a couple of days ago. what are his accomplishments. he's coming out of the gate apologizing for things in the past and calling for a ban on the ar-15. watch. >> we allow people in this country to buy weapons that were designed, engineered and told so
4:08 am
the united states military for the expressed purpose of killing people effectively as possible in as great a number as possible. if you own an a ar-15. keep it. use it responsibly. >> such easy look rhetoric of the left. if i own an ar-15, stocks in gun companies will go up after this, responsible gun owners recognize their right to own rifles like that. you can use weapons of war or assault ban all you want. this will appeal to his base, young people who are uninformed. go out and get your second ar-15 today. maybe a good reason to do so. >> seeing him step out, he just doesn't seem as presidential as i expected him to seem. >> that's a good point. >> we saw that when donald trump had, you know, 16 other candidates, there were some great governors who just once
4:09 am
they got on to the plat tomorrow didn't quite seem presidential. i think that beto is suffering from that a little bit. >> let's give you a chance to weigh in,, now that gillibrand is in, o'rourke is in. i in the meantime it seems like robert mueller finally may be coming closer and closer to an end here because some folks on the staff are starting to leave. he's wrapping up things with manafort. you see politico there, the head line, mueller's busy week offers through hope that the report is coming soon. the president is not so sure. he wrote, i told leadership to let all republicans vote for transparency, makes us all look good. does it matter. play along with the. game. is he trying to spin the fact that the republicans knew they were under fire and had to vote
4:10 am
for. >> the democrats remain obsessed with the mueller investigation so they're voting on protecting it yet again. it will come out. someone will leak it if they don't want to release it anyway. but this new detail came out yesterday, one of the most important stories of the day. former so-called bri british spy christopher steele, there are reports that he relied -- he said he used cnn reports as part of his anti-trump do dossier. he actually used something called cnn-i report which is where citizen journalists or regular folks like you or anyone else can post to the website things that they think. christopher steele used -- if you e-mailed us a at we could use that as a fox fleu fox news rep.
4:11 am
cnn-i report are people posting things on the internet. >> it's not verified. >> to realize that the dossier was used for the fisa in order to spy on americans. >> if i was putting together a dossier using fox friends, i would ask you to e-mail me at, put anytime a dossier and call it fox news. e-mail us and it's fox news. some random person reports on cnn-i and that was used to spy on the president of the united states and they took it seriously. >> it's a scandal. >> which is whoam point was to surreal on then candidate and then eventually the president of the united states. they used i-report at cnn. >> cnn, will they talk about it? >> probably not. >> probably not. you know what i'm tal going that talk about? i'm going to talk about headlines. >> i'll calm down. police are searching for these two suspects accused of

4:18 am
finally we have somebody after 21 years who sat down, listened to us and took action. the president is committed to protecting the people of this country unlike the people in congress who we've been asking for 21 years to give us the border security that we need. now we're at a point where we have a crisis in regards to guns and gangs coming into our communities intimidating people. >> what is this president willing to do that those before him, even though they promised to address the border security crisis, never did? >> first and foremost to understand the problem. me's a problem solver and thank god for that. he has strong leadership and commitment to deal with the problem, not the politics. the others in congress over these 21 years have completely turned a deaf ear and blind eye to law enforcement and experts, the sheriffs on the border, american sheriffs across the country and i.c.e. and our other
4:19 am
federal partners on the border patrol. he's doing what needs to be done for the people and doesn't care about the politics. >> i spoke to some members of congress who say they support what the president wants to do on the border but said they voted the way they voted because they did it on principle. constitutional issues and concerned about what the democrats might do if this precedent is set. what whowld you say to those members of congress who say i'm just being principled here? >> i can't think of anything more principled than following through on your oath to protect the people. this is a crisis now. we've seen it, talked about it, we have boots on the ground. we know what's going op. they need to do it. we've heard excuses for 2 is years, whether it's principle or some other excuse. people are dying in our communities. kids are not waking up in the morning when parents are going into their bedrooms. i have a mother who said that

4:28 am
since john kennedy. i think there's an incredible amount of electricity around beto. >> is there a gap in experience? >> you know, we have to redefine what experience is. i'm not here to talk about president trump's experience. i mean he has his own brand and people knew him. i think actually making sure he can get the grass roots to come out, being an exciting candidate, you know, in the democratic party, like i said earlier, ed, there are certain boxes you have to be for. four or five boxes. all 13 of the candidates check those boxes and then it comes down to who can run a campaign and who can be the best on the economy and you to be a strong commander in chief. >> someone who might be a strong commander in chief, jnd. a workinjoe biden.the crime bily official with the left,

defensive marriage act, he's flipped on gay marriage, iraq war. my point being he has a record. some on the left are going to assail it. you know vice president biden well. >> i know him well. >> what's your sense, is he waiting too long? does he need to get in? >> i don't think he's waiting too long. when you have name recognition, time is your friend, not your enemy. and this time in 2007 obama was at least 3% or 5%, hillary at 65%. no one is really over 20% today. and name recognition is key. a holding place. >> how does he get the left on board because it might be a different democratic party. >> it's straightforward. the most important thing is going to be who do we think can beat president trump. today most people think that joe biden is the strongest candidate in the general election.
4:30 am
getting through a primary is going to be incredibly difficult for those who are more moderate. i think we're going to have our own debate. i'm struggling with myself who i am going to pick. i'm a big fan of joe biden. i think kamala harris is a great candidate, i just spoke with cory booker. this is our own internal debate. a lot of us have not decided. >> beto o'rourke and others want to have you help them raise some money. we'll see who you decide on and who democrats decide on. todd is taking the polar plunge to raise money for charity. did he really get in the water? it was told. your e-mails are next and pete's conspiracy theory put to the test. parents paving and paying their child's way through life. are american parents failing their kids by doing all of that? we'll discuss it next.

4:37 am
encounter failure or lost opportunities. you got to let the kids figure it out. >> it has so much to do with what we saw in the admissions scandal that erupted. and those were definitely helicopter parents and maybe snow plow parents. the answer to all of this, first of all i tell my kids all of the time, i say my job isn't to get you into harvard, it's to get you into heaven. these parent parents have their priorities really wrong. when you have a lot of kids, you can't coddle them. you just don't have the physical ability to do it. >> you snow plow can't be big enough that's one solution. >> helicopter is dumb, snow flow even dumber. the best thing you can give your kid is failure, tear wrenching on the floor, i doesn't good enough, i failed the test, i
4:38 am
lost the game, what do i do next. that's what your whole life is about, failing and adjusting to failing. when you're successful and artificially so, to your point, it just builds up a sense of self righteousness that you're the center of the universe. stop. e-mail us you're not a snow plow important, you're a what important. give us an adjective. >> what idea. oohed good idea, headlines. a trooper shot several times and a suspect killed after a carjacking and police chase in illinois. investigators say the trooper was responding to a call near a sam's club when he spotte spotte suspect's vehicle and tried to stop it. the suspect got stuck in a median and started to run firing shots. the trooper returned fire killing the suspect. the 1-year veteran of the force is expected to survive. thank goodness. the prime minister of

of only bringing the bill forward so i could get the media headlines. kind of ironic. but this is about the saving of girls. this is about protecting the health and dignity of those girls. female genital mutation is so brutal violent act and we need to be sure that we're putting every step forward to protect these girls. and if a mother or father o somebody in the family decides to put this child through this act, they need to be held accountable. >> absolutely. you're going to be speaking about this at the u.n. tomorrow. congratulations on that. lori loughlin and felicity huffman two of the parents caught in the largest college cheating scam ever. but next up, we're celebrating

5:04 am
legislation. ed: interesting because when she started her political career, she came not from new york city but upstate new york, had different positions on guns -- rachel: that's true. great point. ed: -- so she was a more moderate democrat in the clinton mold, broke with the clintons, and we'll get to that in a moment. but also is moving left because of these democratic primaries. pete: so the picture was her and guns on the wall, her and trump, her and kavanaugh. she's basically saying "i'm not trump." but ed to your point it's a really important one. she was a so-called moderate for a long time. was against all the positions she's now for. she is the worst of the worst chameleons. democrats know that, too, by the way. you talk to democrats, they're like kirsten gillibrand is a fold in the mold of spartacus where she will go wherever the trends are going. people won't like that. ed: one reason why bernie sanders continues to get big crowds. pete: he's like i was in the

soviet union during my honeymoon before it was cool, i was with the communists. rachel: you spoke with robert wolf, the former economic adviser to president obama, and he said that gillibrand checks off all the progressive boxes. >> senator gillibrand was really at the forefront of the #metoo movement. she's had this off-the-sidelines pac where she's helped people run for office over the past nth years. should he going to do well in places like new hampshire. she has checked off the boxes in progressive type things like climate change and gun reform and immigration needs but also, you know, she's from a rural area in upstate new york. she can play, i think, both the progressive side as well as the moderate. ed: right. but does that mean she's playing all sides to each people but also he mentioned the #metoo. she was strong on that, quote, unquote, at the beginning, pushing out al franken, for example, over allegations. but then we learn in the last
5:06 am
week or two there are allegations in her own office, not against her, but against a staffer and it wasn't necessarily handled very well. so she's gotten grief from people on the left saying wait a second, clean up your own house before you lecture other peo.le rachel: they're saying that's not brave to criticize other people for sexual harassment and not take care of it in your own office. but look. the democrats are clearly trying to push the woman agenda. she's going to push that topic forward because that's something that she thinks will help her garner the women's vote. there's still a lot of people sort of dissatisfied that hillary clinton couldn't do it for them in the last election, and i think there is a desire not just for a minority but for a woman on the democrat side. pete: email us at, which cabinet position is she running for, because she'll never be president in an administration that's never going to happen in 2020. so a fictitious cabinet position for a fictitious presidential election. ed: another flip-flop, by the way. she launched her career in new york in part with help from bill
5:07 am
and hillary clinton. a year or so later after it was clear hillary was unlikely to run again, she broke with the clintons and said bill clinton should have resigned from office after the monica lewinsky affair affair. well, that angered -- rachel: that was in the midst of the #metoo. ed: so that angered the clinton camp obviously which brings to us chelsea clinton. look, if you want to question her credentials as a progressive you're out of your mind. chelsea clinton checks all the the boxes as robert wolf said last hour in terms of climate change. and yet you had these liberals activists accosting her -- pete: leftist tables. she's a liberal. they're leftist. absolutely. so remember what happened in new zealand, horrific attack, there was a vigil in support of the muslims that were killed there. chelsea shows up, and she is accosted. in fact she's told, she's the reason 49 people are dead. listen. >> after all that you have done. >> i'm so sorry.
5:08 am
it was never my -- i do (unintelligible) -- >> this right here is the result of a massacre. people like you and the words people put out. and i want you to know that and i want you to feel that deep inside. 49 people died because of the rhetoric that you put out there. >> i'm sorry that -- >> what does "i'm sorry you feel that way" mean? what does that mean? rachel: so there's chelsea clinton apologizing after these insufferable social justice warriors confront her, and they say that she owes omar an apology and she owes an apology to the palestinians as well. she said they -- by the way, these women were then later heavily criticized. they took down their account, and then they felt the need to write an op-ed, which they posted on buzzfeed, and here's a quote from their op-ed sort of explaining their behavior and why they attacked chelsea. said many have said it was unfair to connect chelsea's
5:09 am
words to the massacre in christchurch. to them we say that anti-muslim bigotry must be addressed wherever it exists. to chelsea clinton, we hope that our intentions in confronting you are now clear. we believe that you still owe an apology not only to representative omar but also to palestinians for using your platform to defame their cause. pete: hey, democrats, welcome to your 2020 preview. this is exactly what their primary is going to look like. it's why joe biden's still hesitating, i believe. does he want to deal with this? rachel: pete: rabid leftists coming out of college campuses who are no indolent by socialist types like comrade cortez who think the old guard -- ed: who? pete: comrade cortez who think the left failed. climate change didn't get done, our military is too big, our welfare state is still too small our border, too many agents on the border, all of those things are purity tests for the left, tear down the wall or not.
5:10 am
you will see these confrontations for anyone who's not totally pure on the left. just wait. it's rachel: it's a great point. and i do think you're right, that that may be why biden is a little bit -- ed: a little bit on the sidelines. you've been weighing in certainly fired up about this. we got an email from susan. " "chelsea stood up like a lady while being accosted." >>"i don't care for chelsea clinton even though i really don't know her but i really defend her right to speak her mind." >>good point. pete: a great po.nt rachel: by the way, chelsea is heavily pregnant, and what chelsea was chris were some very clearly anti-semitic remarks on the part of representative omar. she was right to call them out. and in the apology -- ed: just as i'm sure she's called out anti-muslim remarks. chelsea clinton doesn't need to be questioned like pete: you said it. she's heavily liberal. like she checks every box but she's still not good rachel: not liberal enough. we're going to turn to some headlines right now. investigators recover

5:17 am
ed: well, the washington post published simply a blockbuster report. it called out the obama administration's failure to act after a number of warning signs about the rise of fentanyl. the post reported that from 2013 to 2017 in early 70,000 people died of synthetic opioid related overdoses. the majority of those deaths were tied to fentanyl. so, did president obama and his top a.i.d.s. simply ignore early alarm warning signs about fentanyl? here to weigh in, former doctoring czar under president george w. bush john walters. good morning, john. >> good morning, ed. how are you? ed: this story was remarkable when i read it a couple days back because it seemed like everyone from president obama to the attorney general eric holder they were given memos, they were given briefings, and they were given all these warnings and they seemed to do little or nothing about it. >> yeah, parts of the country started exploding with overdose threats and the reports were obvious everywhere. the white house spent less time talking about warning people about this than it did in cases of tainted food from factories.
5:18 am
they didn't even warn people about the danger. it was busy on a campaign of de decriminalizing drug trafficking and ignoring front door where most of this was coming up. precursors come up through china china. and they came up through mexico. and the legacy of this today is we're not even talking about the crisis that we face because we don't want to have border security that we need here. ed: you make another important point there about it tying into border security. said a lot of this fentanyl, yes comes from china, and a lot of it comes up through the border, right through the border from mexico. so you have the obama administration not dealing with fentanyl and not dealing with the border crisis. >> absolutely. and we still have confused republicans and democrats saying it's not a crisis. 70,000 people in the united states per year are dying, 200 a day roughly, from drug poisons coming across the southwest border. and that's not a crisis. i mean, that's just the kind of out-of-touch washington that people in the country are mad about, and rightly so. ed: sure. let's be fair with what any administration has to deal with.
5:19 am
the post article referred among other things to a letter that health experts had put together warning president obama and his aides. you've been in these rooms before, in power, in the bush administration. you get a lot of letters, you get a lot of briefings, you get a lot of people saying things. why do you think the obama administration failed to prioritize this? you get a lot of letters. why didn't they see this letter and say, you know what? time-out. we better do something. >> yeah. this was not hard to see. you do get a lot of letters and people have special interests and they have particular pain. but this was people talking about deaths in an alarmist way. i got called by people -- i wasn't even in office -- saying can you talk to somebody, can you get the drug office, can you get the white house to move? the the difference here was the remarkable amount of death that was going on. this was a highly potent substance causing death on a record level. no national alarm, no statement from the white house, no statement from justice, no statement from hhs.

pete: in a truly stunning admission, reuters reveals that one of their reporters sat on a bombshell report on robert francis beto o'rourke for two years. they report, quote, "in an interview in late 2017 o'rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his senate race against ted cruz in november 2018." so is the media trying to protect another 2020 democratic hopeful? here with his reaction media report for the hill and radio talk show host on wor joe conscious. it's one thing to have behind the scenes access and wait until after the campaign. it's another thing to have information relevant to that campaign or that candidate and not talk about it. >> and remember, pete -- nice tie, by the way. that's a good look. pete: thank you, sir. >> ha-ha. hey. it's one thing to have that story in a type of race where it's a 40, 50-point race and it's not going to have any bearing on it.
5:47 am
i think you report everything but in this case remember a lot of people thought that beto o'rourke had a good chance to beat ted cruz in a deep red state and it's that kind of story that could have made the difference between winning and lose. cruz still won by two and a half points anyway but you've got to go report that. remember pete i always go back to brett kavanaugh and all the things we learned from that coverage then. i remember people talked about how he threw ice in a bar during a fight. they went through his yearbook. there he went through his pledging activities when he was wasal yale. all those things were dug into and fair game based on things that were not corroborated in any capacity based on allegations against him. if it's a republican, this stuff seems to get out. when it's a democrat, not so much. pete: it would be one thing if it was nothing, but even beto o'rourke himself admitting to the texas tribune about this. he's not happy -- he's not proud of it. he said not anything that i'm proud of today. he says, i'm mortified to read it now. incredibly embarrassed. so what he did as a member of this hacker group is something he's not proud of and maybe
5:48 am
voters would want to know about? >> absolutely. and look. also i think the bigger story is when he had a dui when he was 26 years old he got into a crash with a truck and then the police report says that he tried to flee the scene. and he just did an interview this week where he said he didn't try to flee. well, either the police officer is lying or he's lying, but either way this person's running for president, that's kind of a big deal 'cause people could have died in that situation. and look. what he wrote in that fictional story, by the way, pete, i mean, that's some creepy stuff. i know he was 15 and i don't like going back and looking at words that people said years and years ago, but in this case, it's almost an exception 'cause he writes this. as i neared the young ones i put all my wait, young ones being two kung, yes, sir, i did, on my right after, put the escalator on the floor until i heard the crashing of two children on my hood and then a sharp cry from one of the two. i mean, i get his 15 and it's fiction, but that's word weird. i don't know how else to put that. pete: to your point that kind of

6:06 am
go tow toe to toe with president trump but can he get past the left the socialists who are pushing the party further further left and remember president trump said this back in the mid-terms out on the trail that joe biden got high name id, as a former vice president, but the two previous times he ran on his own, single-digit candidate without barack obama on a ticket with him joe biden has never gone any wear. rachel: that's interesting i didn't think about it that way. ed: 88 and 2008. pete: there's a five-point scale if you want to run for president as a democrat. what's your race, what's your gender, how much do you hate trump, how progressive are you, and how authentic are you, do voters believe you? the problem is he's a pretty authentic guy but if he's becoming more progressive he becomes more inauthentic and he's an old white guy so he already doesn't meet the first two boxes and he's in a really tough spot and we'll see how it unfolds. rachel: it really shows how far the democrat party has moved to the left that joe biden who ran

6:08 am
ted cruz, in november so he held it from 2017. pete: and this is juicy stuff. media runs on juicy stuff. the name of the hacking group is the cult of the death cow and his alias was psych a almost ic war lorde so listen he may have been 15, 16, 17 that's why they shouldn't vote any the way, nancy, but they held it back because they thought maybe robert francisco beat ted cruz so they didn't talk about it. rachel: it's a great point i said earlier add it to the list of things that never happened to republican candidates. remember mitt romney they drug out things that he did in high school. pete: remember the dog on top? rachel: the dog on top, they said he bullied somebody. ed: cut the hair of a roommate or something. rachel: so these things are drug out all the time. brett kavanaugh's stuff was drug out from high school so again these are little advantages that the left gets that democrat candidates get all the time from their friends in the media. ed: radio talk show host from the hill he's calling it out,

ing on this show, rachel knows a bit about it, i'm learning about it, ed has done the parenting thing, so he's still doing it, older ages, so he's giving us a preview. well we've heard about helicopter parenting so the new york times now has an article about how parents are robbing their children of adulthood through a new form of parenting they say helicopter parenting the practice of hovering near one's children is so 20th century. some affluent mothers and father s are now more like snow plow machines chugging ahead clearing any obstacles in their child's path to success so they don't have to encounter failure, frustration, or lost opportunity , so it's now snow plow parenting. ed: it's coming to the forefront because of this cheating scandal with college admissions that parents, of course you got to help your kids you want to help them with the essays at least a little bit but you've got to push them and let them learn on their own and they might not get into the college they want and they will be disappointed but you deal with disappointment in

6:18 am
me at least to do their jobs? >> well they didn't do their jobs, ed. they went ahead and they ended up filing foreign intelligence surveillance act warrant on carter page based in large part on this dossier, let's just think about this. we have a foreign british spy, former, for mi-6 he is hired and basically colluding with the hillary clinton campaign and the dnc because remember that's who paid him through fusion gps, to actually gather evidence and compile it into a dossier against the trump campaign. now we know based on his own deposition this isn't even based on un unsubstantiated reports but based on his own deposition that he was collecting information mainly from open sourcing okay that happens a lot when you're an intelligence officer but he's also collecting it just random random intelligence from cnn reports, all kinds of back and forth on the internet putting it into this dossier. he says something very interesting in his deposition and he contradicts himself and
6:19 am
this is what i want to point out he says well i'm only allowed to talk about the open source information that i collected in the dossier, which was the majority of it, and then later on he says look, the intent of the dossier wasn't to verify any information, it was just to compile information, which by the way, he also gathered from former fsb russian agents, these are people that are still connected to putin and everyone else, so he was just basically, he contradicts himself there, collects all of this information and then spreads it like a huge disinformation campaign across the globe. pete: so sarah, he compiled internet comments into a document that effectively was used to surveil members of the presidential campaign. >> absolutely, pete. i mean, and for two years, well let's just say three years, but for at least two years, now with this special counsel investigation, not only did this disinformation, if this was a russian operation which i'm sure
6:20 am
it was, once they figured out that christopher steele was asking questions, the russians, sure, found out right away who was paying for this. they compiled this information, they reeked havoc through our election system and so now this is what we're seeing result of this and now we're just waiting for the mueller report to see what he has to say. ed: absolutely that's coming soon sara carter has been on the story as we said from the beginning and she will be on with shawn hannity throughout the week 9:00 p.m. eastern. pete: happy st. patricks day. well california's governor spark ing outrage after declaring a moratorium unilaterally on the death penalty. >> he turned his back on the will of the people, showed mercy for the 737 individuals on death row who have never shown mercy in their lives. ed: angry there at the democratic governor of california now 2020 candidate beto o'rourke wants a federal ban on the death penalty. is it a good idea two criminal

their innocence and for me, the risk is too grey when we've had even one person who is innocent that's been wrongfully sent to death row, and, you know, i understand to the extent that the victims families at times are, you know, feeling as though they're being left out of the conversation but the fact of the matter is the risk is too grave when we have people on death row ed: sure, ted what do you say about that risk? >> well i hear him but i disagree. look, we had timothy mcveigh. timothy mcveigh bombed the center in oklahoma and killed 168 men, women and children and we're saying that some animal like that should not be put to death? i think that this is the kind of a person that the death penalty should be. it should always be on the table ed: phillip last point from you what about marc klaas's point
6:29 am
about getting some measure of justice? >> i think life in prison is justice and i think that with respect to justice you're not putting yourself in a position where we're executing the wrong person because that's a mistake that we can't turn back from. timothy mcveigh i understand the need for him to suffer the way he made everyone else suffer but his life is not worth the risk of innocently, you know, executing an innocent person. ed: phillip, ted appreciate you both coming in serious viewpoints here on a very serious issue thank you very much. my pleasure. ed: the world is mourning as you just heard the tragic loss of it's now 50 people up from 49 in the new zealand mosque attacks. our religion panel here to discuss how to move forward where people are targeted sadly in their own houses of worship and beto o'rourke isn't afraid to admit he's a capital it's but according to him america's capital it's society is wait for it, racist. maria bartiromo joins us with her reaction you won't want to miss that straight ahead. >> ♪ ♪

in your gut, you feel confident to take on anything. with benefiber, you'll feel the power of gut health confidence every day. benefiber is a 100% natural prebiotic fiber. good morning mrs. jonhson. benefiber. trust your gut. >> this is a fox news alert and a very shocking one we're getting some reports that a man reportedly fired on hundreds of worshipers at friday prayers at a mosque in christchurch, new zealand. >> the media in new zealand is now saying that there has been a second shooting at a mosque. >> hearing that the shooting of the shooting of the shooting, i could hear screaming and crying.
6:34 am
ed: one of 's darkest days, 49 people dead after gunfire erupts inside two mosques, armed with two assault rifles and a shot gun, drove to the mosque in christyou're which . and live streamed the 17 horrifying minutes of the attack >> the man on the video also left what new zealand authorities are describing as a manifesto online. talks about intimidating and repelling what he repeatedly calls muslim invaders. >> one man has been arrested and charged with murder two other armed suspecting held in custody at this time. >> it is is with sadness that i advice the number of people who have died in this awful event has now risen to 50. >> i can tell you one thing right now. our gun laws will change. pete: well the world mourning the loss of life this week after the horrific new zealand mosque attack that killed 50 people. in the wake of that attack many are asking how it happened in a place of worship, and some
6:35 am
pointed the finger, not only at the shooter, but even at the president and others. our panel of religious leaders is here to react. rabbi abraham cooper is here, associate dean and director of global social action at the simon ball center, dr. manas fre edy is a muslim center holocaust center and atman hat an college and robert jeffers is a fox news contributor, i want to start with you, so 50 muslims slaughtered in cold blood in new zealand. when you look at it they want to point at the president and other s who should we be looking at here? >> well let me say as a muslim, meaning they go back to where they belong which is a god, i stand with my muslim brothers and sisters today, and for the last two days, mourning the lives of precious lives,
6:36 am
innocent lives, and this is a time where i think we need not to be divisive. this is a time where we need better language and rhetoric and words of comfort for people 50 lives loss senselessly but i also want to say, this is a time where we need better leaders that can use language to calm us , to call out what we need to call out which is racism. we have been through too much, charleston, pittsburgh and now we have this. this is very frightening for all muslims and jews and immigrants and blacks. we must stand together as faith but also understand that politicians need to call this out and to stand with us and i think that's a very important message that religious leaders want to give to everybody in the world today. pete: rabbi she mentioned pittsburgh its been many faith groups, your response? >> yes of course also the
6:37 am
synagogues yesterday in new zealand were closed because of concerns and our prayers go out for all of the victims but the bottom line is that this shooter and the shooter at pittsburgh are working off of the same racist hateful script, fueled online, groomed on social media and of course even live stream ing the horrific slaughter that took place, so we need to put, we understand this as domestic terrorism. we need more resources. i've been in touch with facebook and think all of the big social media companies have to make sure that no one can broadcast a murder or a situation like this again. we have to take practical steps and we need to have a level playing field for all faiths, churches have also been targeted , and that should be the starting point, i believe, the politicians and frankly, all of the talking heads and different groups, i agree with the doctor we need to take a step back from that and focus on making sure
6:38 am
that whether it's friday, saturday or sunday, families can leave home, go and pray to god in their way, and come home in peace. pete: pastor jeffers, it appears "the talking" heads are not taking a step back they're moving forward saying it's president trump's fault. >> look, i think for the media to blame president trump for this horrific tragedy is disingenuinous, it's dishonest and it's dangerous. look the media knows what they're doing when they tried to equate the president's use of the word "invasion" to refer to the very real problem of that thousand illegals crossing our southern border daily when they try to equate that with this mad man juice to refer to these poor, innocent muslims who were living in their own country, and i think it is the height of hipocracy for the media to cry these crocodile tears over the hatred and the divisiveness in our country when they're the very ones with that hatred and
6:39 am
divisiveness by their own blatant dishonesty. pete: a lot of voices following something like this and doctor i want to go to the to respond to some tweets from a freshman congresswoman whose many ways for the left, alexandria ocasio-cortez, she tweeted two things in response to the attack amongst others. she said at first i thought of saying imagine being told your house of faith isn't safe any more but i couldn't say imagine because of charleston, pittsburgh, sutherland springs. what good are your thoughts and prayers when they don't even keep the pews safe? she went on to say "thoughts and prayers is reference to the nra 's phrase used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies not directed to prime minister arder n, who i greatly admire." thoughts and prayers is that not a fitting thing to talk about after a tragedy? >> well i mean i do a lot of thoughts and prayers and today in riverdale, we have a vigil for muslims and the victims but
6:40 am
i do leave in action and i think what we really need to do is ask the fbi to do better work in scouting out who these people are. look, as a muslim, we have been seen as terrorists and the last two attacks in 2018 have been done by white nationalists and it's a fact. there's no denying, there's no divisiveness and bipartisan on that but i think what we need to do is ask the fbi to look at the militants and to see what we can do in terms of stopping this hatred and we do really need to call out white nationalism. i think we do need better gun laws but i also believe that to sort of talk about what republicans are doing or democrats or others is really not the time right now. what action can we take? we need to take better action, scruitinize who these white nationalist groups are and we need to call them white nationalists and call white racism. this is the fear muslims have that only the only thing we do
6:41 am
all the time is talk about islamic terrorists and i think that that's really hurtful for all of us today. pete: rabbi the original hate is anti-semitism a term. what do we do to fight hatred and bigotry? well let's understand that the synagogues in the united states and across europe that have been targeted, we've been having security for the last three decades and tragically, of course we talk about the neo-nazis and the white supremacists today but we have been targeted by islamic terrorists and i think the main point that's being missed here is that part of what they're trying to destroy is the sense of faith communities of people coming together putting their egos aside, trying to create a community, a better community at large, through prayer. we have to protect that as well and make sure that we can secure the perimeters of houses of prayer and we definitely need more commitment by the fbi to
6:42 am
look more directly at domestic terrorism. pete: pastor last word is prayer powerful? >> well, you know, we talked last week about how the democrat party is becoming a godless party and here is one more piece of evidence of that. their marquise star ridiculing the power of prayer, and look, no christian i know believes that you shouldn't do anything except pray, but we do believe prayer is the most important thing we can do. it's like somebody said, there are many things you can do after you have prayed, but there's nothing more important you can do until you have prayed. pete: well said, doctor, rabbi, pastor, thank you very much for your time this morning we appreciate it. >> thank you. pete: you got it. coming up a democratic presidential hopeful, calling capitalism racist. >> there's a lot more we got to do to make sure this capitalism is just. it is clearly an imperfect, unfair, unjust and racist capital it's economy. pete: i don't even know what to say.

6:47 am
unjust and racist capitalist economy. ed: well joining us now host of sunday morning futures maria bartiromo. maria do you think he knows unemployment for african americans and hispanics are at all times lows? maria: i'm not sure he does know i'd like more explanation about this capitalism being racist because i don't think this makes any sense. we know the numbers that capital ism has listed millions of people out of poverty and that a market-based economy encourages people to work hard, to make their own way, to make money, and to create a better life for themselves and then hire people to work alongside with them, and socialism has destroyed economies, so i have no idea what he's talking about in terms of racism. pete: but think about it, personalize it so i don't know who is a bigger capitalist, you or the guy who follows you stuart varney so which one is the biggest racist? i mean really if the implication is if you're a capitalist, then you're supporting a racist system pointing fingers at people who enable that system
6:48 am
where does that mind set come from? maria: it's just more identity politics, more ideas to just put on capitalism so that people don't buy into it. look at the country you just mentioned the unemployment rate look at the economic growth that we have been seeing as a result of market forces once the president put in the policy of deregulation, allowing businesses to once again see opportunity on the horizon, they started putting new money to work and hiring people, so i just think this is more identity politics another reason for somebody of critical of president trump to comment and start using identity politics on what he's encouraging. rachel: maybe to compensate for being a white male in that field something he's already apologiz ed for you've got a great show coming up you've got my wisconsin senator ron johnson maria: that's right ron johnson from the senate homeland security committee we'll talk about the veto this week from the president, we'll talk about why 12 republicans went against the president and what happens now. will this veto be, will they be
6:49 am
able to override the veto which is unlikely. we're also going to get into all of these transcripts that have been released, doug collins congressman from the judiciary committee is releasing lisa page , peter strzok, he's going to come out with jim baker's transcript this is important. this is what you were talking about with sara carter. increasingly people are understanding what has taken place and how the individuals tried to stop donald trump in the 2016 election and then we'll get the democratic side we're going to talk about all of these policies whether it is identity politics, or, you know medicare for all and the green deal, and how this push is happening, within the democratic party. my sources as i was preparing for today's show my sources tell me that aoc is now readying a candidate to go up against, to go up against jerry nadler. she is trying to have a primary challenger to jerry nadler. that's how much pressure the moderates in the demonstratesing party are up against. rachel: wow. maria: so says aoc.
