second amendment. they are used to protect themselves as mechanisms of self-defense and a gun conification program will not something that would be feeivel in the united states where the second amendment is valued so much. when you have acts of lie violence like this. there is nothing more 1r58 i can't believe than people who are legally entitled to own gowns and are law-abiding citizen protecting themselves and others. can i say that in a state like new york where i wish i was in a state where there was better gun laws. let's just say that. steve: there are plenty of them here. jedediah: when i say better gun laws i mean more freedom for second amendment advocates. brian: i don't know if there is push back. they don't have a second amendment over there i don't know if criminals, cold blooded killer was think twice about finding a way to get a weapon and do exactly what they did. they just would be assured now that nobody else with a weapon to be able to stop them who wasn't in a uniform. meanwhile, five minutes after the top of the hour. >> we showed you these 2:00

3:08 am
healthcare. a retirement program which, how many times have we heard in the last 20 years is on the verge of collapse? so, again against that is something she is suggesting out on the trail. but we have heard a lot of trail ostuff on the trail latel. term limits for the supreme court. at the same time maybe we should add more people to the supreme court. in other words, pack the supreme court which we are hearing a lot of people out on the campaign trail mixup. watch this. will and it's a montage. >> we have got to make some kind of structural form to depoliticize the supreme court. >> first they steal the supreme court seat. then they turn around and change the rules on filibuster. all the options are on the table. >> term limits for supreme court justices are is one thing. >> what if there were five justices selected by democrats. five justices selected by republicans and those 10 then picked five nor wruives

independent who chose the first 10? brian: why don't we fill up the stadium with judges and make them all wear gowns and we will vote and make decisions. 35,000 against 27,000 therefore, the objection is sustained. steve: like a legislature. jedediah: how many is too many? who is going to pick the number and when election change hands and it goes democrats and republican, no i want 30. no, i think 40 is better. where does it end? steve: fdr tried to too it and that failed miserably. joe biden is currently leading in a bunch of polls, right? listen to what he said once upon a time about packs the court. >> president roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the united states senate and united states congress a proposal to pack the court. he was legalistically absolutely correct. but it was a bone head idea. it was a terrible, terrible mistake to make. and it put in question for
3:10 am
an entire decade the independence of the most significant body, including the congress in my view. the supreme court of the united states of america. brian: this is just the beginning of what joe biden is going to be looking at. it would make a lot of sense there and make a lot of sense now. my hunch is that was before we saw what happened to merrick garland. he also is getting an idea what he is going to be up against. his own words in some case and a lot of the action of his son. i watched peter schweizer what hunter biden did in china. what his son may have invested n eastern europe. they will start looking through his background like they are looking through president trump's background and i don't know if he really wants that at his age after what his family has been through. steve: let's see how many reporters ask people who were r. in iowa, new hampshire today. do you really think packing the court is a good idea. because joe biden who is leading right now said it is
3:11 am
a bone head idea. brian: wouldn't it be refreshing if he stayed with that. became candidate and stayed with what he had. jedediah: that's the problem with a long political career. these guys and ladies have to flip. you saw that with kamala harris. we have to stuff on video, guys. steve: let us know what you think about joe biden's bone head comment. email us at friends@foxnews.com. we are also on facebook as is jillian mele who joins us right now. jillian: that is true. good morning. start with a fox news alert and get you caught up on this story we were following. secretary of state mike pompeo visiting the new embassy in jerusalem. he is in israel on second leg of his trip to the middle east and visit several holy sites today. earlier secretary pompeo met with benjamin netanyahu renewing support to increase pressure on iran. pompeo heads to lebanon next. the sheriff's deputy murder derderian in a washington state shootout now identified. deputy ryan thompson was shot and killed while responding to a road rage

3:25 am
>> there are biases. of course there are biases there have also been biases. you can't from that he did dues every time you see disparities there are biases. in fact in the book i go into any number of areas where there is no bias. and there are still great disparities. one of the things for example unit famous of with five children, when you look at national merit scholarship finalists, the first born is the finalist. more often than the other four siblings combined. now, i don't know that's because the parents are biased or anyone else is biased it's because the circumstances are what they are. brian: everybody seems to be talking about race these days as if what i imagine was in the 1960's. especially in the democratic side. >> every time we talk about a wall, it's not about a structure but about xenophobia. it's about racism. >> it is clearly an imperfect, unfair, unjust and racist capitalist economy. >> racist thinks is he
3:26 am
racist. and his language hurts people: his language is causing pain. fear. brian: every other candidate calls him a racist. what's your take? >> i have seen no hard evidence. unfortunately we are living in a time where no one expects hard evidence. you just repeat some familiar words and people react pretty much the way pavlov's dog was conditioned to react to certain sounds. brian: you write in some of your past books. like when you were going through school you were a marxist for a while you said that makes the most sense. what changed you to a guy who embraces the free market. what did you learn. >> i didn't learn it in school as i should have. when i began research and piling up fact it became clear that the theory didn't work in the real world. brian: would you do you feel today most of the next generation seems to be open
3:27 am
to over 50% embraces socialism? what happened? >> what happens is i guess they no longer look at facts. the schools aren't teaching them. because this great fervor for bernie sanders was occurring at a time when venezuela was one of the world's largest reserves of oil. people were going down hill in their living standards and hungry and desperately fleeing to neighboring countries. but none of that has made a dent, i expect most of those people out there cheering for bernie sanders haven't even bothered to look into that. brian: thomas, lastly, just about your life, as one of nine raised by your great aunt and her two adult kids moves to harlem young age and forced to drop out of school at 17. first to get past the sixth grade in your family and you end up being one of the most respected intellects in the country. what can we learn about your
3:28 am
journey while serving in the marines, by the way? >> well, one of the things yoyou can learn is that the public school system was a lot better in those days than it is today. and one of the things in those days, they had ability grouping. even if you went to a school in the middle of harlem as i did, if you were in the group -- in the high ability group there, you got a very good education that someone living where i lived has very little chance of getting today. brian: right. >> another factor is, of course, they were not priced out of a job by minimum wage laws. brian: wait a second, i thought minimum wage was compassion for the worker? >> that's what they say. studies done by the national bureau of economic research and others show, in fact, the actual earnings of workers have at the bottom have tended to go down one because think don't have jobs at all in many cases and two, even when they have jobs. the hours are cut back. it's the first thing you
3:29 am
learn in economics as the price goes up. the quantity purchase goes down. when you make labor more specific people work fewer hours and fewer people work at all. brian: doesn't seem like people are listening to that great book. brand new one. discrimination and securities. his life story is something we should all study. this book is your latest example. thomas, thanks so much. >> thank you. brian: all right. so, that was then. here is now. a mom who made her kids youtube stars behind bars. shocking allegations against her. that will be next. in florida or bust. liberal policies are driving more and more companies to the sunshine state. senator rick scott on what is he doing right as governor and as senator coming up next. ♪ that's where i come from ♪

3:34 am
ocasio-cortez and others convinced amazon to pull the plug on the new york location you made a pitch for amazon to move to florida? >> i want all the jobs. in my 8 years we added 1.7 million jobs. here is why people are coming. lower taxes, weather is better. a lot better down there. the tax structure up here doesn't make any sense. what new york has done. what connecticut has done. i send thank you notes. thank you governor cuomo. raise more taxes people are moving. look at real estate prices our real estate taxes are going up and his is r. going down. even his mom moved because she said she can't afford the taxes up up here. companies are competing globally. who is going to pay them more money because they pay higher taxes. jedediah: keeping more of your hard earned cash and earn environment incentivizing small businessebusiness. do you come to states like

new york and recruit? do you come and talk to business communities and say listen, you may be struggling here here is what we can offer you? >> as governor i went 20 times. i went to illinois. i went to california. i went to new york. i went to connecticut. i went to pennsylvania with new governor of louisiana raising taxes i went to louisiana after eboni jindal left. this is what you are bob. and i went to chicago and i said this is what your mayor has done. you cannot compete globally. come down to florida. we have the number one university system in the country. according to "u.s. news and world report." we increase the funding for k-12 by $4.5 billion analyzed. increased our graduation rate to 81%. because our economy is growing. so we can invest more money in the things you care about. brian: the salt tax famously you can't write that off state and local taxes. the president is getting criticized saying that disproportion nativitily hurts new york and
3:36 am
california the question is should that be put back in. >> why should florida taxpayers or tennessee taxpayers sub is i dyes new york's high taxes? that's what's happening. we subsidize the fact that new york wants to charge their citizens more taxes. that's not fair. federal taxes ought to go for federal issues not subsidizing new york's taxes. steve: let's talk about something else. down in florida. he ran for governor andrew gillum has a plan to register a million more florida voters. right now there are more democrats by a couple hundred thousand than republicans. is this it's always a good judged to have as many people to vote. >> register to vote. we don't want any fraud. now, andrew gillum's policies would disseminate our state. high taxes. look at the democrats and think about what they're talking about. the green new deal.

even people who wanted roosevelt's proposals to be found constitutional. he watched his hands of it at one point denied he was even behind proposing it. here's the issue. the whole purpose of an independent judiciary is to be anti-democratic. to preserve the life, liberty and property of individuals from the majority. the democrats want to turn the court into a sort of legislature. if a president could add or the congress could add or the court itself could add new justices every time there is some sort of a controversy. it will look and act like a legislature. and it will seize to be a court. steve: i don't remember this conversation during the last presidential outing judge no. steve: back in 2016. judge: we didn't have that conversation. steve: we have it now democrats don't like the fact that donald trump gets to pick u. >> she should the change the con stowtion which they
3:47 am
can't do. the president chooses senate confirms in the case of robert bourque rejects. listen too these words. the democrats claim they are unpacking the court. that the court has already been packed why? because the president of the united states, pursuant to the constitution got to appoint two brilliant traditionalist style conservative/libertarian jurists in neil gorsuch and brett kavanaugh. they consider that are packing. jedediah: a lot of this is spitefulness over merrick garland not getting his hearing. >> i believe judge garland was treated unfairly and judge bourque was treated unfairly and judge kavanaugh was treated unfair little. these things happen. they are not a basis for attacks the integrity of the institution u. brian: in the past year the president's first term, if there is a second term, this is his first term can you

imagine if an opening comes up on the supreme court? >> wow. brian: last year of presidency? >> then we will see if the biden rule applies which is no nominations during the last -- during a presidential election year. steve: 45 minutes ago when he said packing the court was a bone head idea. judge: i hope he still feels that way. brian: they could do it know in the senate. judge: good point. the number 9 is not in the constitution. simple majority and presidential signature regrettably could do that. brian: if the republicans lose the senate? steve: we will be watching you on fox nation. jedediah: a middle school students made this soldiers. he didn't get an a. he got a suspension. that by and his attorney join us next. steve: good morning, guys.

3:55 am
he told the teacher what he was going to do and the teacher disappeared he is mia pun intended. tyler, why did it mean to much to you to salute the fallen soldier this way? >> this means so much to me because that was the last chance to the military and like their friends got to say goodbye to them and then they have to go back out and fight. and also my dad's friend is like a grandpa to me showed me his war stories from vietnam and he just showed me all about that. brian: if people want to support you, tyler, where do they go and what has it been like for you are since your suspension? the. >> the suspension was like -- you just sat in a room all day. an administrator thought it was stupid that i got, this so she brought me a doughnut and played cards with me. jedediah: this is for honoring a fallen hero unbelievable. tyler, many veterans have rallied arranged you. one in particular wanted to speak on your behalf at a board meeting.

4:19 am
are killing americans are coming in from overseas. what we have to do is stop them from coming in every way that they can including building a wall at the southern border. brian: seizures of fentanyl increased 46 468%. meth seizures 438%. that shows the blizzard of drugs are still coming. in but does it also show we are getting better at stopping it? >> what it shows is that there is more and more drugs coming in addition to people like customs and border patrol, border protection, border patrol as well as the state local and federal law enforcement really trying. and just to be clear you know 468% increase on fentanyl coming. in that is just between the ports of entry along our southern border. 400 pounds of fentanyl which as you know just a few grains can kill a human. it's so critical that we do everything we can. brian: people say a lot of it comes through the port of entry that's where we get it. it doesn't mean it's not

coming through other places and we don't even know. we don't know what we don't know when it comes to the border because we don't have the whole thing monitored or blocked. >> absolutely. if you were worried about someone breaking into your house, you wouldn't just lock the front door you would also lock the back door. that's what we need to do. beef up our ports of entry but we also need to make sure that they are securing the border where there is no wall and driving these drug traffickers to the points of entry where we have more law enforcement and take more action. brian: it's got to be all hands on deck and i think the whole country can get behind it jim carroll drug enforcement policy the drug czar thank you so much. >> thank you, brian. brian: huckabee for president in 2040? coming up the former governor on the possibility? and we showed you this video yesterday. the awesome moment a soldier dad surprises his son. they both will join us live. and they are joining us now ♪ ♪

5:27 am
office didn't ask. the interesting thing that was that network's own report, that the moderator didn't even defend on the stage. so which fenn brings me i don't know how this is journalistic endeavor. they didn't hold account scott israel. these were things already known at the time. they just allowed him to skate. they ran defense for him. jedediah: referenced this a bit earlier. norman lear center why the cnn won the cronkite award. they gave generous space to speaks to gun control advocates parkland parents. i agree with you, i don't think they were aiming to advance the conversation at all. i always wanted to ask you this, when you accepted this offer to go there were you expecting them to give you a fair shake? >> i thought it would be fairer. i knew it wasn't going to entirely be a fair shake. the town hall happened on wednesday. i found out i was going on a

policy. steve: ben, senator bernie sanders tweeted this out. this is what real action to stop gun violence looks like. we must follow new sigh lands a lead. take on the nra, ban the sale and distribution of assault weaponses in the united states. ben? >> old enough to remember when democrats tried to run away suggesting they were pushing for gun confiscation. now apparently they embrace gun confiscation. we have second amendment. deeply embedded in american culture, rightly so if you pick countries good examples why gun confiscation is needed new zealand is not one of them. 235 murders in the entire country, 2017, country of 1.4 million people. brian: beto o'rourke has some interesting beliefs we're finding out. doesn't really stand on policy. looking in his background. he wrote a novel how great it was to run over children. he was a kid then. he was part of a hacking group. we didn't find out about that until recently. then we find out he likes to eat dirt for revitalization, dirt

5:36 am
radicalism of democratic party. even beto's generalized position which is in the third trimester abortion should be legal, forget about the infanticide position, third trimester position only 13% of the americans hold. this is far out of the mainstream then generalized pro-life view on republicans side aisle. media treats it as women have a right to kill fully perform formed babies. steve: you were out in california. somebody doing recruiting for turning point usa now charges were filed against a non-student out there. the president, ben, will sign an executive order on free speech on college campuses and how important it is. who is this going to help? >> well, presumably it will help people on college campuses who are trying to exercise their free speech, are prevented from doing so by the administration. the real question with all executive orders how is it legally drawn up? just the lawyer in me wants to know that the constitution is being followed. that all of the laws are being,
5:37 am
being used. this isn't sort of an overreach. i don't know that until i have seen the text. generalized idea protecting first amendment, connecting for example, university funding for research to their adherence to the first amendment, that seems perfectly acceptable to me. brian: somebody who has gotten protested, locked out, screamed at, going on college campuses. you know exactly the problem. your new book is out. the right side of history, how reason and moral purpose made the west great. what do you mean reason? are we really reasonable people here in the west? >> i think that the basis of the west is reason. the basis of the west is this notion that we are individuals made in the image of god. this comes from the judeo-christian tradition. as individuals made in the image of god we have reasonable capacities we ought to use to pursue virtue the greek idea of natural law. that combination between greek natural law and judeo-christian values created west. these are deeply embedded in the declaration of independence and constitution. one of the reason our conflict,
