3:01 am
encounter with the vice president. he proceeded to big slow kiss on the back of my head. >> the events of september 11th, 2001, thousands of americans died. they wave a wand and say oh, it's going to cost a bazillion dollars they sound like dr. evil. >> right at the rim. ♪ ♪ panama ♪ panama. pete: good saturday morning. jedediah: happy saturday. ed: great to see you. back on the couch. jedediah: what have i been doing the last few weekends. i have been so bored looking at you. ed: sleeping in. jedediah: no kidding. who needs sleep? pete: is your bracket busted mine is gone. hit tar heels and auburn took them down. ed: north carolina took them
3:02 am
down. kentucky tight one. they are in the elite 8. it's going to get exciting. pete: this the most fun two days of college basketball. elite 8 to the final four. have you games all day today. games all day tomorrow. ed: it's actually getting warm outside. we will play a little baseball a little later. that's why i wore a little blue and white for my yankees. pete: that's what that is? ed: they are on fire. pete: i thought it was for your political party. jedediah: did you lose money on the bracket. pete: i don't bet on the bracket. i'm a terrible better. i bet with my heart not my brain: ed: there is a lot happening in the runup to 2020. president trump again now threatening to shut down the southern border this coming week. pete: that's right. at mar-a-lago yesterday in the afternoon the president came out and is he looking at the numbers on the border. is he looking at what is happening down there. ed is going to break some of those down in a moment. he said if we are not going to build that wall and get smart policies, i might have to close it take a listen to the president.
3:03 am
>> you see what's happening to women. you see what's happening to children. it's a horrible situation. mexico could stop it right at their southern burden. they have a southern border. and they could -- and they have a border that could be very well structured. it's very easy for them to stop people from coming up. and they don't choose to do it. well, we are not going to give them hundreds of billions of dollars and tell them that they are not going to use their strong immigration laws to help the united states. so, there is a very good likelihood that i will be closing the border next week. that will be just fine with me. pete: closing the border that could mean major ports of entry. that could be stationing more troops even further forward on the border. we don't know exactly what those details would be. clearly a president frustrated by the fact that there is even more caravans coming. we are hearing reports of today from mexico. mexico hasn't done really anything about it. jedediah: he has had it with mexico because they have a really tight border security policy when it comes to their own country and suddenly when it comes to us
3:04 am
they don't take steerously. you have him. you have secretary nielsen writing a letter to congress supporting what the president has said about the severity of this issue. the letter reads to cope with the overall volume of arriving migrants a resource surge is needed throughout the system to ensure efficient throw put and proper care. dhs requests immediate assistance from congress, including emergency resources to cope with the emergency situation. i'm wondering how many people it's going to take. if you don't like the president and don't listen to what he has to say. you listen to the border control agents and folks at the border to working to help protect us. don't want to listen to ice, okay, secretary nielsen is sending a letter. dhs has to help out. release people without even managing and filtering them proper limit i'm just wondering at what point the media is going to say enough people have weighed in on in this is a crisis and a problem that has to be acknowledged. pete: in a letter we are in a free fall a system wide meltdown.
3:05 am
ed: wanted to break that down for you. i'm going to go over to the touch screen. when the administration says it's in a free fall, basically, and this is in a crisis democrats have said again and again it's a manufactured crisis. look at the numbers and you be the judge whether or not it's manufactured or not. here is the border crisis by the numbers. 100,000 plus border apprehensions possible in march alone. this is from customs and border protection. look at this. over 136,000 people apprehended in the first four months of a fiscal year 2019 that started back in october. why that is significant is that's the same number that was apprehended for the entire previous year. so that's over just four months. that gives you an idea that we are surging far beyond where we were last year. move on to that an increase of 3308%. that jump in migrant family apprehensions in fiscal year 2019 alone. 12,000 plus immigrants in the custom and border patrol custody this week. this week alone 12,000 plus.
3:06 am
so this is the border crisis by the numbers. this is not the politics. these are the actual facts. and what's fascinating is jedediah just pointed out what president trump's homeland security secretary is saying. well, that's politics. that's what the trump administration is saying. no, the obama administration, their department of homeland security secretary jeh johnson, he calls it a crisis. watch. >> my staff will tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehensions a day before, that was a relatively good number. and if it was above 1,000, it was a relatively bad number and i was going to be in a bad mood all day. on tuesday there were 4,000 apprehensions. i know that 1,000 overwhelms the system i cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like. so we are truly in a crisis. pete: we are truly in a crisis says barack obama's dhs secretary for four years
3:07 am
he said if we had 1,000 that was a crisis. today we have 4,000. last year. ed: a day. pete: last year was record. this year first four months beat last year's record. undeniable to see what is happening at the border right now is a crisis. will democrats take to heart what jeh johnson has to say? manufactured crisis or not? jedediah: i think this is pivotal that he came out and said that we are in a place now where it's so polarized in this country someone on your team says something you are inclined to believe them. scial on the other team says something you are not. this is someone estimate mainstream media at large likely respects and trusts. he is coming from an administration that they take seriously, that they admire that they respect. i have to think that him coming out and backing up the severity of what kirstjen nielsen is saying and border patrol agents are saying has to have weight. ed: those are pictures in mexico trying to come across the border into america. the pictures before that we
3:08 am
were showing in texas. here in america, people behind these fences come across were bursting at the seams. nowhere to put them. pete: asking a baseball player go from 9 innings to 36. or tiger woods to go from 18 holes to 72. they would say what are you talking about? you changed the whole game on me. jedediah: vilified though. the border patrol agents are vilified. ed: we will be drilling it home all morning. you won't get it anywhere else. thom homan the ice director coming up later to give us more facts. meanwhile, the other big story still blowing up now the mueller report. pete: it's still blowing up? ed: it's still blowing up. pete: or whimpering out? ed: we want the whole report. yesterday the news was that bill barr the attorney general is saying he is going to give it to them as quickly as possible. by mid april or sooner. pete: he is willing to testify before congress. ed: he will testify. pete: early may. democrats unsatisfied with the fact that this attorney general whose credibility is
3:09 am
sterling has said i will release it after we follow protocol of what would need to be redacted based on. ed: grand jury information. pete: all of that. democrats unsatisfied. you got jerry nadler saying their deadline set by democrats for april 2nd still stands and same with adam schiff. so, they are going to continue to be on citizen meant. i don't know what they think they are going to find to make their argument better. let them keep yelling, jedediah. jedediah: if it comes out and you read the full report and it says no collusion or obstruction. it's not going to matter. then suddenly mueller is going to be a bad guy. this is a mission. they have been on this mission first it was collusion. then it was impeachment. this is going to be ongoing and long road ahead. president trump, i think, had it right when he tweeted. he said the problem is no matter what the radical left democrats get. no matter what we give them, it will never be enough. just watch, they will harass and complain and resist the theme of their movement. maybe we should take our victory and say no, we have
3:10 am
a country to run. i think that's pivot tall, too. you can linger on this for a period of time and i know he had to do a little bit of a victory lap here because it had been held over his head for so long. voters really want the issues addressed. don't lose sight of that they want to talk about their taxes. they want to talk about border security. they want to talk about pivotal issues. republicans have to get it together ton healthcare. don't linger on something that democrats want to amp up and amp investigations and move on and say, you know what? let them worry about that. let the mueller report come out. you guys are all going to see nothing to worry about. i want to talk about issues. pete: democrats want to talk about issues. they end up talking about issues comparing things like climate change to 9/11. pete: really? pete: favorite socialist from the bronx alexandria ocasio-cortez is comparing 9/11 and criticizing republicans. >> on the events of september 11th, 2001. thousands of americans died in one of the -- in the
3:11 am
largest terrorist attack on u.s. soil. and our national response, whether we agree with it or not, our national response was to go to war in one then eventually two countries. 3,000 americans died in puerto rico in the aftermath of hurricane maria. where is our response? they wave this wand and they say oh, it's going to cost a bazillion dollars. they sound like dr. evil. like $100 million. it is next level. i didn't have expect them to make total fools of themselves. [cheers] jedediah: oh, ocasio-cortez. pete: listen to the roar though. that is the roar of the democratic base today. it's why joe biden in my opinion will never get in he will lose. he have to apologize for all the statements he has made and comments and pongs he posits he has held that's not extreme enough. she is speak fog for a party
3:12 am
that's gone radical. ed: cow fat lens and shut down planes and all the facts her office put out about the green new deal. just because one of my staffers was having a bad day as if kind of like threw the staff under the bus that. so examples used that have been criticized as being radical she is now trying to push aside. we will drill down on those facts today and every day moving forward. jedediah: she should learn to take responsibility for her plans and ideas and every now and then ocasio-cortez maybe get out there and talk to people who aren't necessarily going to be applauding you and have challenging questions. we would love to have you. come on. i have some questions. we are going to turn to headlines. political science are surrounding a texas apartment complex after a suspect shoots a state trooper and barricades himself inside. the 16 hour standoff forcing families to evacuate. police say the trooper tried to make a traffic stop when the suspect sped off to the apartment building, then opened fire. the trooper, he is in stable condition. a former democratic
3:13 am
lieutenant governor candidate is accusing joe biden of touching her inappropriately. lucy flores writes in new york magazine the vice president grabbed her shoulders, sniffed her hair and kissed the back of her head before a campaign rally in nevada in 2014. biden who is considering a white house run in 2020 says he does not recall the incident. those are your headlines. pete: never a good call. jedediah: i said it for a while. i don't think the era of the me too movement is going to work for him. i have been saying it for a long time. pete: not his moment. jedediah: last round was. ed: missed an opportunity. pete: attorney general blasting him as con descending and air gawnts. jason chaffetz says democrats are showing their true clowrs. he is next playbook. jedediah: star studded night at the rock and roll hall of fame. singer making history last

♪ ed: attorney general william barr revealing he is set to release a big chunk of the mueller reported with some redactions by mid april and maybe even sooner. that might still be good enough for democrats. here fox news contributor. former house committee chairman jason chaffetz. good morning, jason. >> good morning, good morning. >> good to see you. attorney general coming out look folks, i heard the complaints. i put out the top line points directly from robert mueller last weekend, no collusion. didn't come to a decision on obstruction. the attorney general, the deputy attorney general don't believe there was obstruction. now i'm going to give you with sensible redactions the report by mid april or sooner, jason, they are saying not good enough. >> well, what mr. nadler and
3:18 am
chairman schiff are saying really doesn't matter. the attorney general is bending over backwards. he is not required by law to have to go testify about this. nor is he required to give a fuller accounting of the report. but he is going to. and the idea that well, it's 10 days later than they he wanted. the democrats just picked this date out of thin air and they are trying to create an allusion that the attorney general is being nonresponsive. but that's nothing -- i mean, that's just not true. ed: in fact his letter goes out and says look, there is grand jury information that shouldn't spill out. you are not going to get the whole report. sensitive classified information we are talking about russian intelligence and all of the rest in terms of the 2016 campaign. then he also went on to say william barr, that he is working directly with robert mueller to go through this report line by line on what should be held back. doesn't that give him credibility when even mueller is in the room? >> remember, this comes also on the heels, ed, of an
3:19 am
inspector general who chastised the department of justice in several hundred pages of a report for releasing information about people that were not indicted. they don't want to make that mistake again. you are right. classified information. sources and methods. if there is other ongoing investigations. any of that material cannot, by law. be released to the public. so, attorney general barr is doing exactly what he is required by law and a lot more. ed: democrats have said it's not good enough. here is speaker pelosi, watch. >> no thank you, mr. attorney general. we do not need your interpretation. show us the report. and we can draw our own conclusions. we don't need you interpreting for us. it was condescending. it was arrogant. and it wasn't the right thing to do. ed: that was the day before the attorney general wants latest letter and he seemed angry that she said it was condescending for him to come out last week and give a summary.
3:20 am
it's interesting, jason, in this latest letter the attorney general says hang on, folks, i wasn't summarizing anything. i was giving you the top lines from robert mueller himself. the guy the democrats used to say was big god ready to come down with a tablet. >> look, the speaker is terribly frustrated. they never in their wildest dreams thought that this was the scenario they would be dealing with. but this is the tactic of the resistance movement. just like donald trump said it is. that's what they do. they try to disparage somebody and their character. but she is fundamentally and totally wrong. and by the way, for the 8 years during the obama administration, they had no affinity for openness and transparency. this is a new phenomenon for democrats. ed: you were there in congress fighting with eric holder. loretta lynch for many, many times over. jason chaffetz, appreciate you coming in this morning. >> thank you. ed: all right you, have a lot coming up. in fact, one school actually saying that donald trump should not be president.

3:27 am
something about this. is this indicative of the types of things we are seeing in public schools? i mean, what can be done? >> you know, sadly, it's more indicative of the things we are seeing on the college campus today. and the swamp that's in d.c. is overflooded and flooded into our classroom, into our local governments and our state houses. there are things that can be done. well, the teacher has been reprimanded. state law actually does allow her to be terminated. it's very expensive. some of the laws in texas do need to be changed. sadly too late in the session to file bills on this. i will tell you one thing, there is a very thin line between education and indoctrination and that line was definitely crossed. pete: yeah. absolutely. go ahead. jedediah: i you want to point out more of these so people can a hear. a the united states will impeach donald trump. b, other americans are also offended by donald trump. c, mexican americans are the major group upset with president trump. d, future generations will

have to deal with racism. i mean, you look at this. there is an obvious bias here. this is taxpayer money that's going into these schools. you send your kids to school, you expect them to get an education. you don't expect them to walk out with a teacher inflicting this kind of bias on them, representative. >> no. that's absolutely true. and that's why we are glad people like chris are willing to come over. this happens all over the place. and people are afraid to being be mocked and yelled at. these guys have come forward. people want to cell at them. the real victim here is this child and their parents. pete: chris, we have a statement from the goose creek school district. they said. this they said the passage was part of a series to help practice inference and point of view. the matter was addressed with the teacher and the materials will no longer be used. the teacher made a simple error in judgment and had no ill intent like all of us,
3:29 am
teachers are human and make mistakes from time to time. believe this was an error in judgment? >> i don't believe so. i believe it was at the least very, very careless. she had to know the material she was presenting and obviously, if she read, this which she should have and she should have known her material. she would have known how offensive it was. there is nothing but negativity in this assignment. and there is nothing positive in it. pete: chris, would you ever conceive of something like this coming back about a seventh grader about former president obama? >> you know, the way our children are being indoctrinated in our schools nowadays, i can see them hearing that from some educators. and them not being able to actually form their own educated opinion of him. jedediah: representative kaine, i worked in schools for a very long time. i taught grades 7 through college. this is not unusual. this happenings all the time. i think people are looking to elected representatives to do something because parents feel like they have no course of action when

on the crisis and prevent more of these tragic deaths by participating in known as the spartan pledge. ed: here with more is the artist and organizers of the exhibit. president of adopt a soldier la tune scott la bade dough and president of camp for heroes captain john woody. we are pleased to have you all here. >> grateful to be here. ed: give us an idea how it started. >> adopt a soldier platoon has been taking care of the troops 16 years. started sending care packages. then we got involved with taking care of the wounded. and we started going to walter reed. and that's when i met woody. and that is how i met scott. and so our mission is to take care of our troops whether it's down range or after they come back. we have been kind of engulfed by the fact that a lot of these guys, men and women have a hard time making the transition from military life to civilian life.
3:39 am
pete: a men to that. talk to us why you got involved and what your art represents. >> i found my patriotic calling back in the 1990s when patriotism was kind of low, especially here in the big city. and that's when i started this patriotic, you know, art movement especially about our veterans. look, i lived a life of reilly as an artist to express myself as i choose and it's because of those men and women. i'm writing that on the palm of my hand for four years now the number 22. i said i have to do something. no one wants to talk about this. i am so glad that you people have us on. as i'm traveling the country with this art installation, i'm getting so well received. the families that are coming out to see this. you know, this installation that i'm bringing to them. it's overwhelming but the problem this whole suicide thing nobody wants to talk about it we have to have that dialogue. we have to skill that stigma. i figure art is a great way to get attention because social media is so quick and everything, oh, this is happening. that happened. it's got to stay here.
3:40 am
you know, we have a car driving 140 million miles away on mars. we can fix this. jedediah: yeah, captain woody, one of the things that really struck me about this was the spartan pledge, something that you paired with the exhibit itself. tell me why you did that and what is the spartan pledge? >> the spartan pledge, boone created it back when he was at walter reed. i met alan in walter reed and i spent a lot of time with danny prince fdny. spartan pledge is basically a short pledge that war fighter in crisis will pledge. and now we had a sword made out of world trade center steel. so they take the pledge to the next step. you know, you join the military, you take a pledge to defend our country. when you take this pledge, you take a pledge that you are not going to harm yourself until you talk to a battle buddy. battle buddies are a key here. you can talk to civilians. you can talk to a lot of people that wouldn't understand. only a battle buddy understands where you have been.
3:41 am
you take an oath to talk to a battle buddy before you harm yourself. your mission is to create a mission, to help your family and your war fighter friends. simple thing. it's a band-aid but so far it's worked because to date we haven't lost one that's taken a pledge. that's a band-aid. then we crated camp for heroes and things like camp for heroes to where they can start coming and rebuilding their life. we have art classes. culinary classes. blacksmithing, whatever it is to get them started like on a new path. pete: new sense and purpose. jedediah: sense of community. >> exactly right. >> we have to find community. ed: how do we get people to help? >> my traveling exhibit goes -- i'm halfway through the original 13 cyclones. people are already asking me to bring it to other states. go to my website scott lobaido.com. help out and reach out. see it at nighttime it's a great thing. one other quick thing is
3:42 am

long time. i'm not playing games. ed: interesting, president trump threatening to shut down the southern border as a number of apprehensions at the border is on track to top 100,000 in march alone. pete: here to weigh in is fox news contributor tom homan. director, thank you so much. break down that number 100,000 apprehensions likely in the month of march alone. >> well, if you think about it, we're on the scale to hit a million illegal entries this year. that's getting back to when i was border patrol agent there was over a million apprehensions. however, most of those apprehensions were repeat. for instance when i was border patrol agent in the 1980s, i'm old. i arrested the same illegal alien four times in one shift. arrest them and take them back. 95% were nationals from mexico. a totally different population now. these are going to be 1 million unique individuals that aren't leaving because they are taking loopholes of asylum and they are here for years. so, these are people that
3:48 am
are coming, not leaving. the biggest issue that is different from back in the 1980s, the criminal cartels are controlling these family groups coming across groups of 100 and 200 to intentionally tie up border patrol assets so they can move drugs and bad people through at unmanned sector. it's happening. the intelligence report show it's happening. there is criminal investigations being done by ice. show us it's happening. not only that children being trafficked. numerous investigations of kids being trafficked. 1/3 of women being raped. mark my word, more children are going to die making this trip because there is such chaos right now. jedediah: in the midst of democrats refusing to do anything about this addressing it as a crisis you have jeh johnson going on msnbc and saying we are in fact in a crisis. take a listen. i want to get your reaction. >> my staff will tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehensions the day before, that was a relatively good number. and it was above 1,000 it was a relatively bad number
3:49 am
and i was going to be in a bad mood the whole day. on tuesday, there were 4,000 apprehensions. i know that 1,000 overwhelms the system. i cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like. so we are truly in a crisis. jedediah: what do you think, tom? >> well, look, i worked for jeh johnson. i respect the man greatly. we didn't always agree on things. but back when he was secretary, the numbers weren't this high. and the response, we went from 100 family detention beds to over 3,000 family beds. we built family detention facilities. we built the facilities for border patrol where they hold a lot of these family groups and children so-called cages that aren't really cages built under jay johnson. he took this seriously. we built all this infrastructure around. this now the numbers are much worse. the democratic leadership says it's not happening. i'm sure you remember back when the caravans first started there were no caravans. there is no national crisis. they are ignoring the data. they are ignoring the men and women on the border.

3:55 am
it spreads wildly. if they don't trace it, put pressure on the community to get vaccinated. this law that you can't go in public places. you can't go to shopping malls or church or temple, you can't go anywhere, it's gotten a lot of attention. guess what it's led. to say it's led to 500 vaccinations over the past week alone. i like that result. it's a scare tactic. it's not going to have teeth to it. nobody is going to jail over this, i don't think. but i think we have got to understand the concept that you have to vaccinate the whole community to get the people most at risk protected who can't have the vaccine live virus vaccine not everybody can have it. if you are very old. if you are pregnant. if you are very sick you can't have this vaccine. i want everyone around you vaccinated. jedediah: what about people worried about these mandates? because what if then the flu shot becomes mandated and they don't want to have a flu shot or becomes mandated that you have to bundle these vaccines and you want to space them out or people are concerned about some of the bthe byproducts in vaccines like formaldehyde or aluminum? listen it's my body and my kid's health i want to have
3:56 am
some control over that? >> great way you just put that the answer is it's a public health issue when it's either wildly contagious like measles or deadly like small pox or polio was. if it's really deadly we have to vaccinate the whole community or spreads like crazy. now, i could argue back, you know, you don't have to send your kid to school by the way. in other words, mandate is what does the mandate mean? doesn't mean they are going to rope you off and give you a vaccine. if you want to go to a public place and a kindergarten is like a petri dish you have to have these vaccines. jedediah you are making a great point a great case-by-case basis. is that vaccine warranted versus another. flu shot doesn't work -- healthcare workers doesn't work that well. healthcare workers should have it not the whole world having it mandated. depends on the vaccine. pete: our founding fathers under attack. college kids pushing to get rid of tributes to thomas jefferson and george washington.

4:05 am
the obama administration. a lot of people in media will be more inclined to respect him, to listen to him. a lot of folks on the left might turn around and say wait, hold on a second. this is one of our guys so to speak that is talking now about how this is a serious crisis. is he going to be on cavuto live. pete: jeh johnson, don't miss that to see what he says. tom homan also said hey, nancy pelosi, hey, chuck schumer, have you been to the border? will you go to the border? will you see what's actually happening? i think that's a very serious question. our top leaders should be asking. jedediah: have to answer for that. ed: hear a lot of the democratic contenders for the white house in 2020 talking about illegal immigration the way president trump does. that's why he thinks it will be a pivotal issue like it was again in 2016. one of the democrats still on the sidelines is joe biden, the former vice president. a lot of people wondering why hasn't he gotten in yet? there has been a number of issues. there have been questions whether he can raise enough money that beto o'rourke and bernie sanders raising. moving further to the left. he might be considered for of a centrist.
4:06 am
there is this issue that popped up yesterday on the website the cut. where a former democratic candidate. a state lawmaker came out and said, you see the headline there, an awkward kiss changed how i saw joe biden. and she basically talked about this political event where they came together show felt like it was an awkward kiss from the then vice president and she says it changed her mind about who he really is. jedediah: i think this is a very tough time for joe biden. we have seen throughout the years. those pictures circulating online. video. he is very affectionate. i find oddly affectionate. he kisses people on the mouth. he is always touching people's shoulders. i think there was a time when people had a little bit more of a lenient attitude about that. now is not that time in the midst of the me too movement. couple him with him having to apologize consistently for his record on criminal justice and his record on everything that doesn't place him really, really far left with along with everyone else running on the democratic side right now. i don't think so this is his moment, pete.
4:07 am
pete: i agree with you. one thing to be affectionate and another thing to be creepy. jedediah: uncomfortably affectionate. pete: what she wrote was i'm about to go on stage i feel a couple hands on my shoulders. he sniffed my hair and then kissed me and i just. jedediah: kissed her head. pete: like what do i do? i have got to go on stage and it's the reception from the other person that i think is problematic. jedediah: not to say what his intenth may be or may not be. not to say i'm believe everyone second type of person. because there is this history of this odd kind of affectionate behavior and it's public and all those photos. he have a lot more to apologize for as people apologize. ed: trying to push back on this. joe biden's side of the story. rousseau neither then or in the years since did he or the vice president the staff with him at the time have an inkling that ms. flores had been at any time uncomfortable nor do they recall what she describes, obviously in this article. buff vice president biden believes that ms. flores has
4:08 am
every write to share her own recollection and reflexes and that it is a change for better in our society that she has the opportunity to do so. so you can see the reference to the me too movement she can speak out but denying the facts. pete: that all well could be true. to say me it's a giant tap dance as a rifingts me too moment. and the field that he is in. and what he would face and who was it, michael bloomberg said i didn't run or i don't want to run because i don't want to do an apology tour. ed: started with joe biden apologizing for what he did back in the neat anita hill day. it doesn't mean that this incident is true or not. we simply don't know the facts. what it means is he is going to deal with all kinds of issues he wouldn't have dealt with, four years, 8 years ago that might lead him to believe it's not time to get in. jedediah: also means just pay attention. the bay not want joe biden, the establishment democrats like joe biden on the issue

4:10 am
colonial. so you want to take george washington out of george washington university. explain to me how does that work? pete: no, no. it's because in their mind the founding fathers are racist. all white guys. they are yesterday. we have got to get rid of them. what you forget, thomas jefferson was, of course, an imperfect person. what he wrote in the declaration of independence about all men are created equal, at one point did mean all -- only white men. then it meant all men. then it meant men and women and those words that actually liberated us from those biases and created a more free and equal country. same with george washington if he doesn't lead an army against the greatest army the world has ever seen we don't have america today. the lack of perspective and understanding is insane. jedediah: truth is you put that politically correct pen on everyone in our history, we are going to have no history left because a lot of people, there has been at love positive evolution in this country there has been a lot of positive change. but that doesn't demean the fact that we have a history. we have people that found this country. the country was different at the time. the values were different at the time.

4:18 am
the previous segment when you talked about the founding fathers being slave owners and, you know, there are parts of our history where it wasn't great but i think what people need to understand a couple things. i think we can great with perfect. what people don't understand is that if you say when you want a time stamp it maybe for different families got quote unquote great at different times. the seeds of greatness were planted with the war of independence and the constitution. that allowed us and continues to allow us to evolve. and it's a complicated thing. my grandmother, for instance, she never used the pillow when she lef slept. she always slept with her arms cross sod she could hear the night riders, the ku klux klan. i wonder studying history better place in a world for her to have been born than america at that time despite its flaws? i don't think there was. i don't think there was a better place for my mother to have been born than america. it wasn't great. it wasn't as great as it
4:19 am
could have been. but it was the greatest country in the world even then, even for black people. the day i was born as holder time stamped it the day i was born no other country in the world i would rather be born in on the day i was born than america. ed: you are getting emotional. >> same thing for my children. same thing for my grand children. so, maybe we time stamp it differently but if you want to go to the origins of it, it was the fight for independence, the fight for an idea of individualism and the seeds of the constitution written by imperfect individuals but as a collective the wisdom that allows us to ultimately have freedom for black people, have women allowed to vote. look at where this country has gone in such a short period of time. posted against history. posted against the rest of the world. we are the greatest country in the world and by definition the greatest it's great. by the way, people have to study all of those things. you know, conda wonderful

how you see the president appearing to be exonerated number one. still waiting for the full facts of the mueller report but number two this sort of victory lap that he is taking that is almost like a victory marathon and that it is going on and on and on. is that a idea for him? >> i think it is fine for him to take a victory lap when it comes to the media, when it comes to democrats. when it comes to extending this beyond the next couple of months, turning this into the broad narrative of the 2020 campaign, i'm not sure strategically speaking how you win re-election on the basis of i'm not a russian spy. that doesn't seem like a great re-election campaign slogan. again, i should knock the media, they deserve it knock democrats like adam schiff although i don't think he should be calling him a pencil neck doesn't seem like a worthwhile thing to do when you are trying to win a suburban women or worthwhile human being. the president is feeling unchained right now. that's fine in the short-term in the long term he will have to run on his record and also point at the fact that democrats are campaigning on proposals that are far, far out of the

congratulations and i mean that but this is disgraceful. you owe the country an apology and those are shameful, ridiculous comments. you as a member of congress should know better. that is a unique horror in our history. you don't use it to talk about your crappy green new deal that even your own people didn't support. pete: of course. but isn't it a perfect reflection of the left today, the religion of climate change. they will talk about that but they won't talk about the threat of radical islam that's ongoing today. jedediah: or the border security? >> pete, the left is totally embedded in a faith-based system based in the emotion of liberalism. it's all believe us, look at the comments at the end. that was my second point just quick she goes it's going to cost like a bazillion dollars. no, ms. cortez people work for a living. things have value that cost stuff that people's hands have to produce. that's how they pay their taxes because they work. and they create income and they create value and they get dirt under their fingernails. it's not a bazillion dollars.

5:26 am
i find your story so compelling from going to being a planned parenthood clinic director to being a pro-life activist. what was it like to see your life story, that aspect of your life anyway portrayed on the screen? >> you know, it feels very vulnerable to have something like that portrayed, something so personal portrayed on the big screen. but, honestly it's worth it we are already hearing stories every morning i wake up with dozens of messages from people saying i took my pro-choice friend to the film. they walked out pro-life. and that's really what this is about. it's about exposing people to the truth. letting them see what is actually taking place inside of these abortion clinics. and i think that truth is enough to actually wake people up and to change their minds. jedediah: some in the media not such big fans of the truth. they are criticizing the film. some networks have refused to run ads for it we actually have a quote from variety which they have reviewed the film. didn't give such a great

review. unplanned isn't a good movie but its effective propaganda at least it is if you block to the group it's targeting. starts off as pro-life alarmist horror movie. this wasn't surprising for me to see. what do you think the reaction is to people when they see the media predictably in my opinion wanting to shut this film down from step one. you struggled with they wanted to give it r-rating and in fact they did trying to reduce visibility of the movie to the public. what's your reaction to all of that? >> you know, i think people are just really fired up now to go see it. you know, i think that rebellious spirit, right? we got an r-rating and parents said i'm taking my teenagers to see this film. i don't care that it got an r-rating. people are refusing to advertise for us. people are saying fine, we're going to get the word out through grassroots social media. we're going to get it out through our chunks. through our community groups so people have really been fired up. people are ready to see the truth behind these clinic

6:02 am
the president would have the right to assert privilege over certain parts of the report he has stated publicly he intends to defer to me and there are no plans to submit the report to the white house for a privileged review so mr. mayor here you is the attorney general asserting his independence saying i'm not going to run this past the white house despite democrats charging he's part of a cover-up and we'll get this out within the next two weeks maybe sooner. >> first of all the democrats are making absolute fools out of themselves the report is as clear as it can be exoneration. i was a prosecutor for 18 years, and usually it's hedged, we can't quite reach the result where we have probable cause to get an indictment all these other things, or we can't prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. exoneration, mueller on obstruction says i can't reach a decision. i don't have to charge a crime, just can't make a decision on exoneration, don't know why but attorney general barr, and knows
6:03 am
as much about it as mueller and some people feel rosenstein was very touch on the president and he will say complete no on suction at all anywhere. if you think there's anything in the report that really strong goes in the other direction you don't realize how good a lawyer barr is, rosenstein and the office of legal counsel in the justice department so i'm very confident we can meet anything they say in the report. as far as i'm concerned if they can put it out legally put out all of it. jedediah: democrats of course aren't satisfied right away saying no we want april 2 that was the deadline we have representative nadler saying that deadline still santa fees adam schiff whose been unhinged in my opinion and president trump responded with a tweet saying the problem is no matter what the radical left democrats get, no matter what we give them it'll never be enough they will harass and complain the theme of their movements so maybe just take our victory and say no we've got a country to run. >> these are terrible terrible people. i'm going to tell you what's involved there's nothing to do
6:04 am
with it. you can't disclose grand jury material. it is a crime. now they can say april 2, but bill barr and rod rosenstein are not going to jail because they have an unrealistic deadline, so they may have to go to court and get a court order. that's how they had to do it with watergate. so they create these false impressions for american people. they're like dishonorable sales men or something, it's ridiculous to say to the american people, barr is delaying because he wants to delay. he's delaying because it's very difficult i don't know if it's 200 pages? ed: 400 pages. >> very difficult to put out 400 pages with all of the legal restrictions and not violate something and you know if he violates something it'll be on the other side? put barr in jail he put out grand jury information and ruined so and so's reputation. can we get back to sanity? pete: you and i were talking before the break how is the president reacting to all of
6:05 am
this? >> the president is reacting as you might expect. it was a burden on him, he functioned unbelievably well with all he accomplished with this burden on him. it's unbelievable; however, the burden about worrying for his family and his friends and it's horrible. i ran many campaigns. the loyalty you have to the people who work for you is tremendous because you know they put you there. all of a sudden to see these people dragged through grand juries. i was in the white house two days after and the young people in the white house told me how terrible it was to get questioned by the special counsel, how mean they were, how they treated them like they were some kind of criminals and all they were was a person who, you know, saw a document and was identifying a document, four or five hours for prosecutors, six fbi agents. i don't think i've ever had like 10 people question anybody. it's usually an assistant and agent and maybe one other person
6:06 am
and you treat them with courtesy the fbi is known for it. they can arrest the worst murderer in the world and say mr. smith, you're now under arrest. thank you, yes, sir, you're nice they're nice. they teach this to the police. be respectful, be nice, and calm everything down and less difficult with the arrest, probably get the person to cooperate. ed: when you joined the case one of the things you were trying to do was change public perception about this and we've seen in polls people thinking that the investigation was politically motivated one right here, 54% of the public believing that the investigation, the mueller probe , i believe that says cbs news, 54% politically motivated 37% justified so my question is how did you change that perception number one and number two, what do you think should happen now to james comey, john brennan. >> the first one that was the only real change in strategy and it was we had a two-tier defense one-tier defense is to mueller, legal, so we have our report ready, should he say anything
6:07 am
critical, we're ready to respond to it and give you five reasons why he's wrong. that's the legal defense, and to try to work out so that he wasn't unncesssarily put into traps, which i think thank god we came through, and we also had a great legal team. jane and marty raskin, and donald j. trump. there were times when his legal analysis was as good or better than ours. it's like having a fifth man on the team, but the second one was i recognized that you have to try this to the american public because the only thing they can do to him is impeach. in the way we're conducting as if it was an ordinary grand jury investigation but it wasn't. the people who had his fate are the members of congress. 54% say this is politically motivated and they want to vote for impeachment, well goodbye. it'll be like a 70 majority in the house next time around, like what happened with clinton and
6:08 am
the unwise republicans who had a lot more to work with. they had actual perjury because unlike what happened here, they walked him into perjury, or he walked himself into it and in trump's case completely innocent , no collusion, no obstruction and they say well why is it so hard to represent somebody like that? because we were representing him against totally contrived charges, with a staff i've never seen one put together like that. when he said eight angry democrats, they don't realize how rabid these people were. one of them was the counsel to the clinton foundation. imagine if i was investigating hillary with a counsel to the trump foundation. nba c, abc, the times, the post, get rid of him. pete: recuse. recuse. ed: but john brennan said he committed treason what's going to happen him. pete: and the whole thing investigating the investigators? >> well two levels one is the public accountability which when you say that is time for a really big apology and it's
6:09 am
doubling down and getting more outrageous and sends out letters to people. i don't think this man has any idea what the attorney-client privilege is. someone should read the right to counsel clause, if the constitution means anything to him. it's a letter that has to say that he has no respect for the constitution like all the notes of lawyers all the conversations of lawyers, i mean, it shows a ridiculous approach of people who are ignorant, i mean, we say this about the mueller staff. they may have been politically bias, heavily, brilliant lawyers , great investigators, much more power than congress. if they couldn't find it, why are we going to waste another $20 million on trying to find what isn't there? no collusion, guys, no obstruction. it reminds me of the election. remember the day after the election the democrats couldn't understand what happened and they were saying people were going to psychiatrists and had to get counselors for kids in school? there be a lot of guys who develop
6:10 am
that expertise. i think they should all go see their psychiatrist and get connected to reality. jedediah: a lot of questions also people have about president obama and what he knew and didn't know in terms of the justification for this. >> this is extraordinarily important and they are trying to bury it. the left wing media is trying to bury it as much as possible. it is vital for the good of our democracy and for the restoring of justice, this wasn't justice. not just to the president, to the people that they raided their homes in the morning like they're terrorists, put them in solitary confinement in order to break them which is a specialty? i can show that the misconduct in this case goes back to things weisman has done throughout his career, harsh conditions of o confinement to try to break somebody. this is what they do in prison camps. trying to making up crimes, supreme court are you versed them for making up crimes. obstruction is made up. campaign contribution is made up not a campaign contribution. it's a personal expense. just go read the commissioners
6:11 am
of the sec, so we have to end this. my question is here is a good focus. who started this? jedediah: uh-huh. >> it's not true. didn't come down from the sky, who started it? and then who propagated it knowing that it's false? there has got to be answers to that and we could all speculate. let's wait and see, but let people focus on it. ed: rudy guiliani appreciate you coming in. pete: great stuff. jedediah: we've got headlines for you this hour, a 15-hour standoff is over as swat teams arrest a man accused of shooting a trooper. police in texas say brian cahill fired several shots at police while barricaded inside an apartment. he was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. the whole situation started when police say a trooper tried to make a traffic stop and the suspect sped off and shot the officer. that trooper is in stable condition. a federal judge strikes down california's ban on gun magazine s that hold more than 10 bullets. the judge says it violates the second amendment and prohibits

>> the discovery of wrongdoing that was not found to amount to criminality, now there could be a lot of that. the president says the report exonerates him totally and he's been saying that for a week.
6:17 am
it just feels like this is turning into a bit of a scramble inside the justice department. >> you've got to wonder just how much information will be blacked out. pete: its been one week since the initial findings of special counsel mueller's report, and the media still can't seem to accept the fact that no collusion was found. so why are they still searching for evidence of wrongdoing by the president? jedediah: here to react media reporter for the hill and radio talk show host, joe konsha. so joe, not surprising to see the meltdown. what happens next? let's say the full report comes out and there's no collusion or obstruction, do they at some point have to unhinge the media? >> well unhinge of a diary, as you just played those clips we could start calling these people after the mueller report comes out and let's say because think about it, is attorney general william barr whose only been in this business basically for 40 years, going to put this entire reputation on the line when he knows what's in the report he will say something three weeks
6:18 am
earlier, that is in contradiction of what's in that report? why would he do that? it would just be stuped and he's definitely not a stupid person so look we've got to start calling these people for what they are, collusion clingers just like 9/11 truthers where next thing you know they will tell us that a plane was swallow ed by a black hole. oh, that's right that actually did happen so look it's having a profound effect on ratings, you showed she lost 500,000 viewers from the week before, that's because people were promised something and kind of like getting a paycheck the check bounced because once you promise something for two years, you don't deliver, maybe some people are going to be a little bit angry about that and cnn being down 50% that is a perge like i've never seen before. remember what kind of news week we had guys, jussie smollett goes free, avanati arrested, the mueller report, the barr reaction, trump's reaction, democrats reaction this is one of the most crazy news weeks i can remember and to lose half your audience in this environment is virtually impossible.
6:19 am
pete: it's a great phrase, collusion clingers i think you're right but when the report comes out in the middle of april and barr does his job which would include some redactions for completely legal and legitimate reasons that will they until every black line is gone, they're going to keep going. >> oh, okay guys. this will be why was that blacked out? what is bill barr trying to hide and trump trying to hide but i think they just look stupid at that point if that happens. cnn did a poll this week and they released it on monday and asked what are your most important issues, open-ended questions you can answer several most important issues going into the 2020 election not one person out of thousands said russia investigation, and this poll was taken before the mueller report came out, so look, all i ask for and i know you've got to go is that when adam schiff whose the seinfeld of congress basically is a show about nothing every interview he goes moving forward any interview has to ask for evidence. okay you say there's evidence present it now and if it isn't there come off his oxygen and end the interview. it's not going to happen but
6:20 am
it's something we can at least ask for on a lovely saturday morning in new york city. pete: that is true and you're right if you're losing 50% of your audience they're turning it because you've been selling me garbage for the last two years. jedediah: it's amazing too there's no switch just no acknowledgment their coverage for so long was false and then the initial report, you know, summary comes out and just no self-awareness or desire to actually have some shame every now and then for their coverage. >> i told tucker earlier this week, it's like the captain of the titanic telling the orchestra, great job playing, as the ship is going down. jedediah: right! thank you, joe appreciate it. chick-fil-a and san antonio's airport our next guest is a congressman in that district trying to stop the airport from banning chick-fil-a, next. pete: eddie galley germany in solitary confinement, his brother joined us earlier and moments ago president trump made a big announcement about eddie g

pete: we are back with a fox news alert right now, tensions mounting as thousands of palestinians gather along the israeli gaza border. demonstrate ors are marking the one-year since major protest along the gaza stripment our own jonathan hunt is live at that border this afternoon, in israel , jonathan how are you? reporter: pete, good afternoon. these demonstrations have as you say been going on for a year palestinians protesting the israeli blockade that contributed a great deal to the dire economic conditions here, tens of thousands were expected to show up today it is new at all clear that they got anywhere close to that number at this point. we, i would say we've seen around 3,000 here you can see in the distance the white smoke.
6:25 am
those are tear gas canisters being fired by the israeli troops who raid along this side and you're also looking at one of the sniper positions they use we have not heard a lot of live fire here today but we are told that one palestinian has been killed, and a couple of dozen injured. there were a lot more here earlier and we can show you some of the video from earlier, when there were thousands here, tensions were very hyatt this point, but i have to say, it has remained relatively calm, pete and everyone hopes it stays that way, pete? pete: jonathan thank you very much. ed down to you. ed: dhs secretary kirstjen nielsen sent a letter to congress about effective immediately i notified congress that dhs will need emergency legislative action to restore order, achieve operational control of our border and ensure we can fulfill our humanitarian responsibilities effectively.
6:26 am
well, congressman chip roy joins us now to explain what we need to do next to address what the president called a crisis. good to see you congressman. >> good morning, ed thanks for having me on. ed: go for it. >> it's really concerning i think the secretary is right to send that letter up to congress, we do need to take emergency action and look the administration has been clear from the get go. we need nor beds, judges, relief at the border, infrastructure fencing, roads along the river we've got 100,000 people coming here illegally being apprehended in march alone which is a record high. we had over 4,000 in one-day alone this week according to border patrol and most concerningly about 13, 400 in custody right now, and in the past, 4,000 is a really high number for just how many people we have in custody, so 13, 400 is just unmanageable so now border patrol is actually catching and releasing immediately and not turning them over to i.c.e. and we don't have any chance to process anybody coming across-the-boarder.
6:27 am
it's a real problem an emergency of epic proportion. ed: congressman the data speaks for itself we had on the screen a moment ago 100,000 apprehensions potentially this month alone. that's what border patrol officials are estimating. you see that stat there and yet nancy pelosi and other democrats called this again and again a manufactured crisis and she put out this statement this week. the house is deeply concerned about this request. she's talking about the budget, which seeks to fully revive the administrations horrific and immoral family incarceration and family separation plans. we cannot support the implementation of policies, pelosi writes, that we know will hurt traumatized children, rip apart vulnerable families, dishonor our values and do nothing to solve "the situation" at the border. congressman when the issue is demo demonstratesing a god like that, what's the problem? >> you have where they come down and go into the facilities
6:28 am
where our great agents are sitting there doing everything they know to do to protect those children, coming across the river being exploited by cartels , putting in harms way we put them in a room to figure out how to keep them safe and which men aren't their dads that are with them separate them so they are safe sleeping in a warm bed, give them medical treatment and put them in a bus and distributed around the country and she's demagoging this and go across the street and get on a camera and say something o p o sit from what they saw in border patrol and it is on their hands what is happening to these little girls and these women that are taking this dangerous journey through mexico because we refuse to do our basic job as a sovreign nation and secure our border. ed: the president talked about maybe shutting down the border this coming week, i appreciate you coming but we also want to ask you about something happening in your backyard, san antonio maybe not wanting chick-fil-a here is a statement. "i'm confident that we have
6:29 am
followed all our rights and clauses as given to us as city council and we did everything by the book. " chick-fil-a responding we have a fundamental code of conduct, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. the 140,000 people who serve customers in our restaurants on a daily basis represent and embrace all people regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity. why is the city council getting involved in this? >> well unfortunately the city council of san antonio doesn't seem to reflect a vast majority of the people who live in san antonio and it's unfortunate because chick-fil-a is a pillar of our community, in central texas and around the country and this is just discrimination. they're discriminating against chick-fil-a for their deeply held religious beliefs and that's likely unlawful and contrary to the constitution and i sent a letter to them saying they need to answer to this because if they continue to do this it's going to harm the ability for congress to do what it needs to do to help san antonio because this reflects badly on the city.

president trump: i have nothing to hide. this was a hoax, this was a witch hunt, i have absolutely nothing to hide and i think a lot of things are coming out with respect to the other side, but i have a lot of confidence in the attorney general. pete: that was president trump yesterday weighing in on attorney general bill barr's decision to release the mueller report, which we now know will happen in mid-april if not sooner. joining us now to discuss is tom del bacaro former chairman of the california republican party
6:35 am
and author of the historical perspectives the divided era. mark penn, former clinton advisor and polster managing partner at the stagewell group and author of microtrends, squared and kathy barnett, the veteran herself, served 10 years in the armed services in the army reserves and radio show host thank you all for joaning us this morning. tom let me start with you. do you believe the president going full stream ahead saying it's a witch hunt a hoax this is something that will help him going into 2020? >> well i think he is going to do and the question is the best way for him to do that and he needs to tie this to the future because voters are impatient. they want answers to tomorrow's problems not yesterday's issues, so what he should do is say look going forward the democrats are the party of corrupt investigations, and i'm mr. fix it. i've fixed the economy, i've fixed isis now let's fix healthcare and let the democrats talk about socialism and affairs of the past but he needs to go forward and connect that too. pete: mark that's a fair point but there's two schools of
6:36 am
thought and you can look backwards a little bit and say look how corrupt this investigation was give me another short-term so i can move forward in my agenda or just move to issues and say we're over that let's move on. what would you advice? >> well look i think there should be accountability for how this investigation got going. i've never thought it had much credibility but that's different from it being a campaign issue. it's over. america sees this thing as having been investigated and the swing voters are out of it. they all say don't campaign on it. they say the democrats don't campaign on it but they say the republicans tell me about infrastructure, tell me about immigration, tell me about healthcare, tell me about the real issues that are affecting america. that's the clear message of the voters. pete: yeah. >> i think have accountability, this is not what they're going to vote on any more. pete: but kathy democrats are continuing to vow investigations especially in the house of representatives so it feels like this will remain part of the conversation no matter what. >> exactly listen democrats are not moving on. they are instead telling us
6:37 am
they're going to continue to investigate. they continue to try and find something that mueller, his 19 prosecutors, 40-plus fbi agents and $30 million later could not find. they're vowing they are going to find something, anything over this president. one would think that just our president was just cleared of allegations of colluding with the foreign country, one would think the nation would be happy and will be taking a collective fiery leap and moving forward but instead you have democrats once again adam schiff at the head of it all, vowing to do more investigation. they're furious that they didn't get him rather than being happy for the country and showing some type of constriction, and willingness to turn the page and move forward. pete: it's a great point you mentioned adam schiff well here he was at a hearing recently talking about collusion, listen. >> you might think it's okay that the president himself called on russia to hack his opponent's e-mails if they were
6:38 am
listening. i don't think that's okay. i think it's in more all, i think it's unethical, i this un patriotic and yes, i think it's corrupt and evidence of collusion. pete: tom, schiff is from your home state and he still says it's collusion. will it ever stop? >> well yes and i'll tell you 41 people tell him to stop and that's the new congressional democrats the freshmen when it starts hurting with independent voters nancy pelosi and those 41 say add am enough is enough. pete: mark, is this evidence of a split in the democrat party? >> well, there is a split, you know in the harvard harris poll that came out a couple of days ago in fact most people reject collusion but about half of democrats are still clinging to it so adam schiff has a constituency within the democratic party for this until i think maybe the full report comes out and the overall electorate said no, don't do it, no more investigations, we're
6:39 am
done. pete: kathy last word for you. >> listen president trump is going into 2,020 squeaky clean, as if there was anything about this president, mueller, his 19 prosecutors and 40 fbi agents would have founded. this president is perhaps one of the most thoroughly vetted presidents, a politician we have ever had. pete: that's a great point as vetted as anyone has ever been. tom, mark and kathy thank you very much for your time. we really appreciate it. have a great saturday. all right now turning now to your headlines which jedediah has and i don't. jedediah: 50 lawmakers are joining and gallagher is accused of killing an isis fighter in iraq and his brother shawn gallagher joined us earlier thanking president trump. >> the president has pretty much told the navy to move to less restrictive parameters and what that really means is he can be confined to his house, and see his family while he prepares
