caught on camera. humpback whale nearly clearly with passengers. the captain able to make a quick move to get out of it. jillian: we are getting out of this. have a good day. ♪ go back ♪ this is the moment ♪ the night is the night ♪ it fight until it's over ♪ we put our hands up ♪ like the ceiling can't hold us ♪ like the ceiling can't hold us. steve: already tuesday, september 10th. last night a big showdown in fayetteville in north carolina, the president went to the crown expo center and he said, you know, we were supposed to be outside at the airport but the weather looked bad and we needed a bigger place. i was willing to stand in the rain even though you would have discovered that this was actually my hair. i would have gotten soaked. and then he talked a little bit about his hair. and he said you know, it may not be great, but it's better than a lot of friends
3:01 am
same age. lisa: the hair is important, you know as we know, right? brian: lisa is here for ainsley. they both agree on one thing air is important. bishop's run off election today matters. basically in a dead heat with the marine that -- the democrat marine who is running against him in that battle ground district. if the president wins, you know people will say well, he was supposed to win after he appeared. and they lose the president is vulnerable this election season. steve: it's the battle of the danes there in the ninth district down in the ninth district and also a battle in the third district. lisa: it's a dan-off. steve: welcome dano. two key special elections in that state. lisa: expected to be an
3:02 am
early gauge for the president's re-election in the battle ground state. brian: mark, hour and a half, how do you sum that up? >> try to do it in 90 seconds because that's what the rules are here. two special elections today for congressional seats in north carolina as you were just mentioning, brian. the race most experts are going to be watching in north carolina is the ninth district an area between faithville and charlotte where republicans are eager to put dan bishop in congress. can you see him on the screen. support for bishop's campaign at a rally. the president made it clear he sees the race as democratic nominee as dan mccready as far too liberal. >> support for sanctuary cities is disloyalty to american citizens and mccready wants sanctuary cities. mccready supports sanctuary city policies that force prisons and jails to release criminal aliens directly into your neighborhoods. get out. go ahead. go into the neighborhoods.
3:03 am
[crowd boos] >> for his part mccreed is says is he willing to put country over party and is promising if elected to pursue a bipartisan agenda. here is what he had to say before the president's rally. >> my hope is while he is here in addition to doing the rally he will come and actually talk with people who are struggling with healthcare costs because if i have the honor of serving, i would like to work with the president on lowering prescription drug costs. >> president trump won the ninth district easily in 2016. this year both parties have spent a lot of money on this race. and we're going to be watching to see if the messaging, the president used last night either helps or hurts g.o.p. candidates like the ones in north carolina and going forward. back to you. brian: one thing is clear the president has had a good time. always good when someone is in front of the audience and you think that's the only place he would wants to be. a president four more years last thing i want to do is run out to north carolina on a monday night when i have a lot of homework and have to run out and give a speech.
3:04 am
instead, i think he loved every minute of it. the crowd ate it up. lisa: of course. he is in his element when he is at these rallies. you can tell he loves doing it as brian just pointed out. i will say for special elections historical data proves that they always mean a hill of a lot in terms of trying to read the tea leaves for 20206789 whatever happens i wouldn't read too much into it. you want to hear what president trump said last night because he was fired up about democrats. listen. >> the radical democrats want to dismantle, demolish and destroy everything that you have gained. they want to have open borders. they want to have drugs pouring in our country. democrats also want to bring in unlimited numbers of foreign refugees from overseas. look at what's happening to democrat run cities. democrats even want to give free healthcare to illegal
3:05 am
immigrants. [crowd boos] virtually every top democrat also now supports long-term abortion. [crowd boos] >> every major democrat running for president supports a massive government takeover of healthcare. democrats are now the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, and socialism. the republican party is the party of the american worker, the american family, and the american dream. [clears] steve: so there you've got a number of the sound bites that the president had about democrats. keep in mind because it is a special election and that's the only spot in the country where that's happening in the 3rd and 9th district to your point earlier about you might not put much stock in it at the same time it's really hard to get people to come out in a special election. it's not even a midterm, it's a special election. the key is motivation.
3:06 am
that's why the president was there in faithville yesterday. that's why he was in -- he was in green new deal a -- greea couple months ago and the president was there yesterday trying to get the vote out for dan bishop who is going to be with us later in the today's telecast. lisa: the president is not wrong about this lurch in the democratic party. healthcare for all was outside the mainstream party now it's not. brian: decriminalizing border crossings comes up almost every time it will come up in the debates, medicare for all and trying to mimic bernie sanders socialist and third place in most polls. sarah sanders is full time with us. i'm not sure if she has dental. steve is looking into that. she talks about what the democrats fear. >> they are terrified of his successuccess.
3:07 am
harder it is for them to get elected. singular focus. it has nothing to do with helping america it. has nothing to do with helping people across this country. i'm pretty sure they don't even like america if you listen to what they are saying. everything they have to say is so negative. you saw the exact opposite of that from the president tonight. i hope that people will continue to look at that contrast and see that you have somebody who loves this country, loves all of the citizens of this country versus the democrats who have nothing to do but take the president, attack this president and try to tear him down. brian: and he doesn't seem to mind. the thing about the president he says you know i will keep fighting i wish i wasn't fighting so much. they keep coming at me i will keep fighting. lisa: seems to revels in it. brian: they had a series of investigations filed at the president yesterday. you would think he had a day at the park or golfing. steve: he just calls that monday. they will always be after him. there is a growing sense
3:08 am
with the establishment that maybe this track that the democrats are going down is not going to help them. in fact, there was a "new york times" op-ed yesterday and the headline was democrats stop helping trump. it was a column written by david leanhard. we will give you a quote. first, let's tell you a little bit about how it looks over the last couple of year the american perception of the parties. for instance, when it comes to the democrats over the last two years, the view of the political party, democrats, the view of democrats has gone down 8. republicans has gone up 2. then the unfavorable rating and this is critical. the democrats have dropped 10. the republicans are static. lisa: i think one thing that is really interesting as we have been talking about, sort of this lurch to the left. we look at these policy positions like giving healthcare to illegal immigrants. so democrats in the primary support this by 15%. when you get to the overall voters in the general election, they oppose it by 28%. what happens if they end up
3:09 am
nominating someone who has supported that? what do you in the general election? brian: here is a quote from the op-ed steve was referring. to say you would think the democrats would be approaching the 2020 campaign with a real sense of purpose. but they are not. at least not yet. they have instead, devoted substantial time to wonky subjects that excite some progressive activists and alienate most american voters. referred to on sunday by rahm emanuel on nbc. he doesn't understand where all these candidates are coming from and why it benefits them to go to the left of barack obama all of them. steve: it's the primed marry. you want to do everything you can to get noticed. joe biden doesn't have to come up with any of this stuff. he has been steadfast in defending obamacare. but then it's part of his legacy. brian: rahm emanuel is a strategist he is saying he doesn't understand it. and he knows it's a democratic primary. lisa: it's not like rahm emanuel is a moderate either. whether it's eliminating private insurance.
3:10 am
getting rid of fossil fuel these have massive impacts on people's lives here in the country. good luck with that in a general election. brian: two there are two things if you are in law enforcement and family member in law enforcement how could you feel the democrats have your back if you are in the fuel and energy industry. how could you feel your future is bright if the democratic party is in power? rush rim because weighed in yesterday. >> the trump-russia hoax, folks, that little two year escapade is not forgotten, is not going to be forgotten. you have to remember, they promised people, they aassured people trump was toast. trump was gone. trump had colluded two years of this. and then the big reveal with the mueller report and -- nothing. the media may not be apologizing. may not be asking their
3:11 am
audiences for forgive news, but i'm telling you, large swaths of their audiences don't trust them as far as they can throw them today. steve: and he has got a point. because after you have been told something for two years it's all going to be in the mueller report and we are going to see. wait, there is nothing in the mueller report. wait, i was listening to somebody on that channel who said that and they were absolutely positive a, b, and c were going to happen. noble of it happened. -- none of it happened. that's the problem it. speaks to credibility. lisa: anyone watching robert mueller before congress also undermined the report and made him look like he had no idea what was going on. put questions about the investigators. he also admitted hey look i was able to conduct my investigation. i was able to conclude my investigation. steve: i didn't get fired. lisa: and the argument of obstruction. brian: madison and mueller had one thing in common. they did what they were supposed to do. they served the country. did the report in mueller's case and tried to stay out
3:12 am
of politics of it all the way through. when mattis was here last week, general, had you no idea how he felt about the president. they tried to get him to talk politics. with mueller he tried to back out of it as well. with 11 minutes after the hour jillian mele has been scrambled from "fox & friends first" and is here. jillian: i made my way here. give you updates on the bahamas. the numbers continue to climb. 50 people confirmed dead in the wake of hurricane dorian. that number could go up as thousands remain mission. right now 70,000 people are homeless. some seeking refuge in the u.s. told they cannot evacuate on ferries bound for florida. u.s. visa. please proceed to disembark. jillian: blames the ferry company for not following the correct procedures. president trump says people seeking refuge need, quote: totally proper documentation. look at that. ice issuing a detainer for another illegal immigrant accused of rape in

steve: look at that the coast guard celebrating after pulling the fourth crew member to safety after being stuck below deck for nearly 40 hours in a capsized cargo ship. that one right there down off of saint simons island in georgia. rescuers drilled a 3 by 5-foot hole in the hull of the ship through steel after the ship caught on fire and capsized while leaving that port. here with reaction is former merchant marine captain clause luda. good morning to you. >> good morning, thank you for having me. steve: what do you think happened? why did that great big ship that goes in and out of ports across the world every day, why did it tip over? >> i have sailed on these type of ships around the world for more than a decade. i have been in and out of this port dozens of times. and the thing about these vessels is you have to distribute the weight throughout them evenly. steve: what does that mean? >> we don't know exactly what happened. my suspicion is that there was too much cargo up on the
3:19 am
you were levels of the vessel and not enough ballast water down in the bottom portion of the vessel. this is a very shallow draft port and a lot of times officers, if they think they can get out of port with enough stability, they will wait until they get into deeper water to facility ballast tanks with ballast. my suspicion is they made that decision and, unfortunately, the stability of the ship was just a little too close and when they took that turn, once it tipped over. the rest of the weight shifted and then it was beyond rescue at that point. steve: sure. the thing about this particular ship. it's not like it's a cruise ship. that ship we are looking at was loaded with 4,000 cars there is a lot of weight on there. >> a lot of weight. if you think about a 12,000 parking garage that's two football fields long, there is a lot of vehicles on board this ship. they are latched down so when we get inside the vessel and able to examine it. you will probably see a lot of those cars secured inside. it's also possible a lot of

the them came loose when the ship started rolling as that weight shifts, if you think about a rocking chair, sitting in a rocking chair and lean back, it's going to come back to equilibrium. sit over on the top portion of the chair it will flip over. that's what happened here. that was also the worry about w. all those loose cars in a rescue was daunting but they were able to pull four guys out of there yesterday. it's a issue in. >> it's just amazing. so much credit goes to the u.s. coast guard for acting swiftly and rescuing those sea fairers. can i only wonder what it must have felt like. thankfully it was in shallow water. if it had been in deep water when this scenario occurred the scenario would be completely different. steve: sir, thank you very much for sharing your expertise. >> thank you. steve: all right. straight ahead. radical groupings like antifa spreading violence across the country. the next guest says if the

3:26 am
socialism to rise and really take root they have got to get rid of religious liberty. they have to take away the foundation of this country. that's exactly what happened. i warned folks in culture jihad that once they start attacking religious liberty and chipping away at the foundation of the country, every single one of our other rights comes under attack. and that's exactly what's happening. lisa: obviously culture jihad that is a stark name. why did you choose that particularly heading into 9/11 here? >> oh, yeah. it's a provocative name for a provocative time in the country quite frankly. we have got to start talking about these issues. my hat is off to dave chapelle. is actually talking about what we need to talk about in this country, the attacks on free speech. the attacks on our fundamental rights here. we are talking about efforts to destroy artwork that people find offensive. banning books like little house on the prairie and to kill a mockingbird. we are talking about, you know, taking away mondayments anmonumentsand painr

3:40 am
would compete with tile as you know those are those tags you put on items such as your keys and can find them. apple apparently has that in the works. i don't think we will see that this particular day. steve: in other words you could find things with your iphone so you really can't lose your iphone otherwise you are not going to find anything. >> true. steve: all right. lisa: awesome. sounds cool. steve: it does indeed. all gets started in a couple hours on the west coast. kurt at cupertino. new iphones today. brian: i don't think this whole iphone thing going to catch on. i think it's just a fad. still ahead johnny damond is going to be here. gronk, condoleezza rice the first time all three have been together and marianne williamson wants to be the nominee for president of the united states. steve: we have good bookers on this show. nearly 500 illegal immigrants reportedly freed

living at marine center along with a blue lobster and two calico lobsters. kind of cool. steve: thank you. meanwhile this morning immigration outrage as a new report claims nearly 500 illegal immigrants with ice detainers on them were released in sanctuary states across -- sanctuary counties, that should say, across north carolina in the last 10 months. reportedly among them, people who were wanted for kidnapping, assault, arson, and murder. brian: how could that be bad? here to weigh in fox news senior judicial analyst host of fox nation judge napolitano. the friction between ice and certain sanctuary counties is getting to intolerable level. >> i'm surprised this is happening in north carolina. and this is serious. this is not the case of people being released who are susceptible to demore station and the sheriffs who are releasing them because they finished serving their term for which the sheriff was confining them, failing to tell ice.
3:46 am
these are people charged with other crimes in north carolina for which the sheriffs are not rearresting them and releasing them. if an illegal immigrants is in jail for a bank robbery and is also charged with assault and finishes the bank robbery term he should be rearrested, reincarcerated and prosecuted for assault. that's not happening in north carolina. steve: that's right. >> it's a difficult thing to address. you would think the people of north carolina would be electing public officials would be concerned with their safety. guess what, they are not. steve: the sheriff? mecklenburg county a fellow by the name of sheriff gary mcfadden announced a while back he would no longer honor ice detainers. here is he defending the release of a number of the 500. >> nor any member of the mecklenburg county sheriff's office sets a bond or any amount of that bond or conditions to be released.
3:47 am
you may want to ask a judge the question and you may want to ask the magistrate the question on why bonds set so low in order for someone to be easily released from the detention center. i'm given a law. i'm going to follow that law. a detainer is not a law. a detainer is actually a request by a federal agency and not the law. steve: okay. the sheriff asked a judge. we have a judge here. why is the bail so low. >> i don't know why the bail is so low. this is the world turned upside down. i lived in this system when i was on the bench. it's very common for someone to be freed from the crime for which they were charged in your courtroom and other police there ready to arrest them for another crime. it is inconceivable that i would not have have delivered this person to the other police that were there to arrest them violate my oath to withhold the law.

in the house and then it dawned on me there were cleaning people. so i thought okay, well, maybe they fell on the floor and they vacuumed them up. they had one of those central vacuums that go in the wall. so, i -- we looked into that and had the company come out and had the police come in. made a report. we are not accusing anyone but they were there and then they weren't there. steve: you just want them. >> the reality is i can go bay ring tomorrow. however, i put some of those diamonds which i had made an eternity band for michael at the time and i had met bob after that. and i took -- we had a little bands and i took the diamonds out of my little bands and i put them into the ring. i designed it from scratch. steve: it's beautiful. >> i'm not getting married again. i'm not going to have the pope bless it again. it's not the money. it's about the value of the sentimental. lisa: tell us about michael. >> well, michael, you know, i met him on 9/11 1999.

4:02 am
the white house. kevin it, all has to do with why the cia called back into the united states a spy. >> you are right on the money. this report out of cnn was fronted and sourced by jim sciutto. you probably have seen him on the air. is he a former obama official and frequent critic of president trump. the cnn report claims that the cia removed a top spy from russia over fear that they could be compromised by president trump. that the u.s. intelligence community didn't feel like it could fully trust the commander-in-chief to keep spies safe disturbing revelation certainly was the suggestion. but the cia's director of public affairs pushed back hard calling it misguided speculation that the president's handling of our nation's most sensitive intelligence, which he has access to each and every day, drove an alleged exfiltration operation inaccurate. you also mentioned the "new york times." they are also talking about this. former intelligence officials said there was no public evidence that mr. trump directly
4:03 am
endangered the source and other current personal officials insisted that media scrutiny the agency sources alone was the elm at the tis for thimpetus for the e the suggestion that the president may have perhaps come pro-mighted the identity or sources or methods is not a new charge by some on the left. what is new here is you had the "new york times" saying it's probably not true. certainly taking aim at that report by cnn as i'm certain the president and the white house do as well. we will talk about this more throughout the day. speak of the day. we have a very full day today. the president will be speaking in front of historically black colleges and universities at an event later today. he will also today meet with congressional republicans and there is an ambassador swearing in as the new ambassador to the u.n. is hailed by the put. that and much more on a very busy day here at the white house. for now guys, back to you. steve: indeed. kevin, just to recap what cnn said is this particular
4:04 am
spy was asked to leave the country. the worry was that donald trump could expose him as a spy. and then the "new york times" says the reason this guy was called back and it was before he actually sworn in as president because this guy apparently provided really good intel about russian medal ling in our election. >> you are right on the money. also keep this in mind. when you read that piece in the "new york times" i'm speaking of, understand that they do a great deal of digging on the suggestion by cnn. i thought it was a revealing piece and i think a lot of people will find it interesting. if you have a few minutes today, give it a look. brian: had a whole day to beat up on a president about a story that maybe not have been true at all. >> yeah. brian: kevin, thank you very much. the president of the united states was asked about it. he said listen the cia put a statement out. perfect statement i'm done. a lot of times he would sit there and harp on it.
4:05 am
they responded. i'm moving. steve: right. we're going to talk to mollie hemingway about that. just about 15 minutes from right now. in the meantime if you everywhere watching fox news channel last night. you know that the president united states was at the faithville crown expo center down there. there you can see the vice president of the united states. he was stumping for a couple of special congressional election candidates. one from the third district and the other from the ninth. in particular, he was stumping for dan bishop who is squaring off against democrat dan mccready and the president would like to hold that seat as a republican seat. >> what's interesting, president trump, as we know, ran in 2016 as a change candidate as a disrupter. now he is running on his record. this is what he had to say last night about that. america is winning again. and america is respected again. they they respect america.

4:08 am
president trump and eventual democrat nominee. newt gingrich was kind of hitting on this a little bit as well. listen to what he had to say. >> well, a lot of winning. it's important to recognize that no matter what the news media does, there is a core base of 44, 45% of the country frankly ignores all the noise focuses on what's working and then they watch the democrats promise basically to destroy it. you are going to have a contrast this wide between people who want to make america work and people who wants to cripple america. steve: that's one of the things the president walls saying when he was down in north carolina last night. of course, he is just trying to turn out the vote for two special congressional elections today. the big one is dan bishop vs. dan mccreedy, battle of the dans, which is pretty close as of the latest polling. that seat was left open after north carolina elections board found that
4:09 am
absentee ballot fraud had occurred nut november election. so that seat has been open. will it go the way of republican or democrat? we should know by this time tomorrow. brian: yeah. it might come down to what the president is able to accomplish over the next couple of months. you are not going to get anything in the winter or the springs. the usmca would help middle of america, especially the dairy farmers. the sense with suburban women they want something done on guns if nothing titanic. just something to add additional perspective whether it's protection, whether it's background checks or something else. and then there is a sense, too, this japsdz american trade deal would help the people in the south. let's seat if the congress can get something done. lisa: we will see if they want to get something done usmca could be a win for president trump. we have jillian mele with additional headlines. jillian is always a win for "fox & friends" and viewers at home.

let's bring in mollie hemingway i i'm not sure she has ever seen a hat that size. mollie, do you have a monitor. steve: mollie? >> yes. sorry. brian: do you have a monitor there. >> yes. brian: were you surprised about the size of that hat. >> it's an impressi impressively large hat. steve: it is a baking hat from. that, mollie, were you impress you had with the cnn story by jim sciutto yesterday that apparently they pulled a spy, somebody spying for the united states in russia, they pulled them from russia because they were worried that donald trump could expose him as a spy? were you impressed with that? >> it's only impressive in that it is once again an incorrect story from cnn. jim sciutto obama operative had a lot to do with the russia collusion stories that have since been debunked and yesterday's was so exception. what's interesting about it
4:37 am
is that it was part of a trio of stories based on leaks from intelligence officials that seem to be preparing to out someone and so even though the stories that they're telling is not correct. there is an interesting story here. it has nothing to do with donald trump. exception that apparently this person was involved in sharing information about russia collusion or russia or something russia-related. steve: okay. >> it's not good that you have intelligence officials just leaking like sieves normally something they tend to protect. brian: interesting. here 16 seconds of jim sciutto breaking a story that didn't happen. >> person directly involved in the discussion said that the removal of the russian was driven, in part, by concerns that president trump and his administration repeatedly mishandled classified indigency which could then contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy. brian: the cia then responded. lisa: put out a pretty damning statement from the cia director to cnn saying
4:38 am
cnn's narrative of the central intelligence agency makes life or death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false. misguided speculation that the president's handling of our nation's most sensitive intelligence, which he has access to each and every day drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate. mollie, pretty damning response there. >> it is damning in the sense that this exfiltration was first offered in 2016 before donald trump was president. this has nothing to do with trump. why was someone trying to make it sound like it had something to do with trump. i think it's because had you people who were not careful with a source. the "new york times" reports that it had nothing to do with the president but media inquiries. how did the media know about this person? i think there are two likely scenarios, one is inside the government. you had obama's intel chiefs running this russia operation. you also had people outside the government such as
4:39 am
fusion gps, which was claiming that it had sources highly placed in the russian government. these people were talking to the narrative to set forth this russia collusion narrative. walls it somebody inside the government or outside the government. perhaps both. perhaps they're both trying to point fingers and might trying to distract people by mentioning trump when really it might be an indication that you have inquiries going on whether it's the inspector general or the durham inquiries that are starting to expose shenanigans or misbehavior by intelligence chiefs or people outside the government who put forth this false and dangerous russian collusion narrative. steve: this goes to those suggestions of the deep state. are you talking about somebody inside the intel community essentially who has got -- you know, has the ear of these reporters who is just trying to make donald trump look bad, lose the election, and whoever their person is going to win? >> i mean, that's what the story of the russia collusion hoax has been all along. putting forth two reporters
4:40 am
who were too compliant or too wig to listen or not think critically, an agencies of treasonous collusion with russia. this gripped the nation for 2 to 3 years. sidelined the government and of course it was always sourced to anonymous obama. inside the government. bureaucrats currently or previously. this is something people are finally starting to look into with the inspector general and durham. i hope this flurry of leaks you are seeing is an attempt to get out ahead of a story before information comes out that looks pretty bad for them. brian: right. have you got to know that the russians have a way of following you once you leave their country. this person have you got to worry about security especially when stories like this come out. >> so dangerous and so irresponsible. i hope that the people who are leaking about this individual and the media who are just running wild with these leaks think a little bit about how this effects people's security. steve: all right. mollie hemingway trying to figure out what's going on.

4:46 am
special election for house seat down there in the ninth district. north carolina congressional candidate, easy for me to say, dan bishop joins us right now from charlotte. dan, good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. glad to be with you. steve: i heard you say last night you were on the fox news channel with our coverage. you said we are not tired of winning, mr. president. we want to keep winning. you would like to extend that through today, wouldn't you? >> absolutely. this is the day we have been working toward and the voters get their say today. steve: what is the choice between you and dan mccready who, by the way, we did invite and they have declined. what's the choice for the voters of the 9th district of north carolina? >> we have worked hard, steve, to offer voters a clear choice. and there is a contrast between a trump vision of a stronger economy and more jobs and border security and continued american exceptionalism and then my opponent represents nancy pelosi choice and elizabeth warren choice toward green
4:47 am
new deal, sanctuary cities, which she is specifically in favor of. and ultimately socialism. more government documentation of everything. that's the choice voters have. steve: we were thinking about you today because earlier we did a story with judge napolitano. one of the local north carolina television stations did this story that 500 illegal immigrants were released from north carolina jail with ice detainers, including some charged with sex offenses, kidnapping, arson and homicide and the detainers were ignored by state law enforcement officials. the whole idea is to call up ice and say hey, we have got somebody here. we are going to release them. they never called ice and they just released them. your reaction to that? >> well, steve, you know, that's new to north carolina. and the general assembly where i serve in the state senate we sought to fix that we passed legislation to require what's always been practiced which is that sheriff's departments will cooperate with ice. and let ice know if there is
4:48 am
a detainer for someone before they release them into the community. but some sheriffs have gone sanctuary city on us. and the governor vetoed that legislation and dan mccready said it was the right call. dan is totally wrong on that. i'm right on it, and he is wrong. steve: well, you know, we are talking about largely the sheriff in mecklenburg county, gary mcfadden who announced he would no longer honor ice detainers. do the people of mecklenburg county, do they want their county to be a sanctuary, dan? >> you know, steve, i don't think so. i mean, but that has turned out to be in part what this race is about. the sanctuary city's idea is new to north carolina. and i think it's outlandish. the notion that you are going to -- as you say wtve story is that 500 dangerous criminal illegals having been charged with serious crimes all subject to detainer requests were released back into the community. i think it's absurd and it's contrary to basic idea of
4:49 am
cooperation among law enforcement agencies and it has no place in north carolina. that's for sure. steve: all right. dan bishop, running for congress in north carolina. the ninth district. dan, thank you very much for joining us live. >> thank you, steve. steve: all right. meanwhile, exactly 11 minutes before the top of the hour. batting next on "fox & friends" two time world champion of baseball, johnny damon is here next. ♪ put me in, coach ♪ i'm ready to face the day ♪ look at me ♪ i can be ♪ center field >> tech: at safelite autoglass,

5:05 am
couch it by saying this, anytime there is a report you will get pushback. the real question for cnn what was the ultimate, let's say source on this particular story? by the way in case you didn't see it, jim shuoto former obama administration official, fronted the source of this story, effectively saying that the president was not trusted by the intelligence community. let me tell you about the story, has fating one to say the least. he suggested that the cia removed a top spy from russia over fear they could be compromised by president trump ic, inside the beltway, intelligence community felt they couldn't trust the commander-in-chief to keep our spies safe. a disturbing revelation if true. the cia is pushing back forcefully in the suggestion in the cnn report this is speculation that the president's handling of our nation's most sensitive intelligence which he has access to each and every day drove an alleged exfiltration
5:06 am
operation is inaccurate. "new york times" also did a deep dive on this story, really basically made this point. it was the media that perhaps led to the exfiltration of this particular individual. it said this. former intelligence official said there was no public evidence that mr. trump directly endangered the source and other current american officials insisted that media scrutiny of the agency sources alone was the impetus for the extraction. that is a complication to say the least for a couple of reasons. first of all you're suggesting maybe because the media was trying to figure out who the source may be and what the source may or may not know about possible russian interference in the 2016 campaign may have led to the exfiltration. but if you pardon me, that is debatable according to "the new york times." certainly heard the president say briefly yesterday, i have a lot to say about it. cia made the statement. we're standing by that. interesting, we'll watch the
5:07 am
story throughout the day. we're making cause as we speak to see what else we can find out from the administration's perspective here at fox news. i mentioned earlier, guys, the president has a busy day. you heard brian talk about the hbcus, historically black colleges and universities. he will have a speech today on that. we expect the president to meet with congressional lawmakers from the gop and welcoming a new u.n. ambassador. another busy day here at the white house. we appreciate you watching it with us. back to you. brian: we cannot wake for him to walk in front of the chopper giving a press conference walking up and down the line. will he have a chance to do that today? reporter: i will cross my fingers, say probably. always makes my job easier when he gets out in front of the cameras. steve: kevin, thank you very much. according to the russian spy was being pulled out, when the u.s. government, cia people, said listen we're worried about your safety according to "the new york times" after such granular detail has been exposed regarding russia collusion.
5:08 am
it was about how russia meddled in our election we think you should leave. he said no. according to "the new york times" he was going to stay. until later they came back we're getting media inquiries we're worried about your safety. he said okay, fine, i'm going to go. he did. brian, the safety of the guy, one network knocked on a door yesterday, i'm not going to say where, feeling that is where the guy lived. he is worried about his safety. apparently, according to the story, shortly after somebody knocked on the door, a couple guys got out of an suv, said, hey, what are you doing, something like that. brian: they're hot on the trail. many people know who it is. steve: the suggestion this person is being protected by the federal government. lisa: cia statement they came out with, really hitting that hard. you know who also hit the story hard is mollie hemingway. we spoke to her earlier. listen what she had to say.
5:09 am
>> this exfiltration was first offered in 2016 before donald trump was president. this has nothing to do with trump. we know these people were talking to the media to set forth the russia collusion narrative. whether someone inside of the government, obama government, or perhaps outside the government. perhaps both. they are trying to point fingers, trying to distract people by mentioning trump, really might be an indication inquiries going on whether inspector general, durham inquiry starting to expose shenanigans misbehavior by intelligence chiefs or people outside the government who put forth this false and dangerous russia collusion narrative. brian: i sense molly is pursuing this. i sense she has an angle. steve: it makes perfect sense, why would the two stories so different, apparently both outfits working on a while, why would they both come out yesterday, be so wrong, you know, parts of the cnn story,
5:10 am
according to "the new york times" contrary to that, so maybe there is somebody who is trying to put out the story at the highest levels or at some level of the intel community. lisa: as mollie pointed out we're all awaiting the fisa report by the inspector general as well as the durham investigation. brian: meanwhile i'm waiting for jillian mele's report. jillian: i'm waiting for to you toss it to me. brian: officially tossed. jillian: thank you very much. talk about the news happening overnight as crews working to remove a capsized cargo ship off the georgia coast. the u.s. coast guard rescuing four people trapped inside of the ship for 40 hours. former merchant marine captain joined us earlier. he said this is nothing short of a miracle. >> it is just amazing. so much credit goes to the u.s. coast guard for acting swiftly and rescuing those seafarers. i can imagine what they felt like in the dark hold of the ship, wondering what is going to

it? >> i don't mean the left in some generic sense. i meant that i have seen on the left as on the right there are too many people who do not recognize how important honorable debate is in a democracy. you can disagree with somebody's opinion but that doesn't mean you should be shutting them down or lying about them or misrepresenting their views. that is not a left-right issue. and i've, you know, there is a rough-and-tumble in politics. lisa: do you feel abandoned by your party? >> pardon? lisa: do you feel abandoned by my party? >> no i don't feel ad ban dodd by my party. i'm a passionate democrat. if you have a problem in the family don't come out and talk about it outside the family. i will not come on fox and badmouth. the dnc has its rules. i signed up for this. i am playing by the rules. this would be true about the republican establishment as much as the democratic, i think
5:26 am
parties should facilitate the process of democracy, not in any way dictate the process of democracy. so i'm in a situation, for instance where particularly because i'm a non-establishment candidate, people need time to think this through. i think people, it is earlier in the process than, you know the political establishment sometimes okay, let's get this thing going but that is not necessarily where the voters live. the voters are still thinking this through. let's not narrow the choices before we need to. steve: you live where the voters live. you moved, lock, stock and barrel to be there in the first of the nation caucus. for people unfamiliar with you, at your gatherings, most candidates like, big noisy crowds, your crowds are quiet because they're meditatingth thinking about going on. >> you're talking about one i did yesterday. yes it was in a space where there was a meditation. it was very beautiful actually. i have a lot of noisy rallying too. that is part of what america is
5:27 am
about, democracy. it's a food thing. steve: for people unfamiliar what you stand for, what is your signature issue? >> well you know i think there are issues underneath the issue you. i think that deeper issue is that we have lost our sense we're all on the same team. we're lost, we've lost our sense. sometimes we get there when there's a tragedy, like we'll be commemorating tomorrow. we were all just americans that day. we have to start from that place, you know. president eisenhower said the american mind at its best is both liberal and conservative. i grew up in a home, my families were democrats, leftists, but there was no sense i was going up that the other side of the aisle was an enemy. steve: where did it come from? >> i think it came from a lot of places on both the left and the right. if somebody said what would your inauguration day be, i hope a day, let's give each other emotional amnesty. there will be people --
5:28 am
steve: i like that, emotional amnesty. >> can we start over with for giveness in our hearts? lisa: you received a lot of criticism about things you said on health issues. >> well -- lisa: you say you support vaccines, you called mandatory vaccination doctor cronian. you compared it to pro-choice laws about the government not telling people what to do with their bodies, if you support vaccinations why did you make the comment back in june? >> i was living in california the conversation there had to do with mandatory exemptions and so forth. lisa: should they be mandatory? >> pardon? lisa: should they be mandatory? >> this is the issue, anytime medical intervention both benefit and risk, government must come down on the side of public health. i think the state government in those cases have to make the own scientific analysis feels what it feels right for public health. i support that. when i made the comment, it was a sloppy comment. brian: so you regret the comment? >> yes. brian: you have a proposal, department of peace.
5:29 am
>> yes. brian: we used to have a department of war. it is now secretary of defense, department of defense. with will the peace department do? >> even donald rumsfeld said we need to wage peace. general mattis said before he left the defense department, if you don't fully fund the state department i will have to buy more ammunition. look at the defense budget, $750 billion, then there is the state department at 40 billion. within the state department, 17 billion for humanitarian assistance and less than one billion for peacebuilding. so the way i look at it, we need a holistic approach to society, just like we do to the body. you don't spend all of your resources on medicine. you have to also cultivate health. sickness is absence of health. health is not the absence of sickness. war is the absence of peace. peace is not the absence of war. you have to proactively cultivate peace. you can't just endlessly prepare for war and hope you back up into peace. steve: sure. marianne, right now, when you look at polls, joe biden is way
5:30 am
ahead. can joe biden, if he is the nominee for the democratic party, can he beat donald trump. >> we're going to make sure that he does because there are millions of us who feel very, very strongly. we want a democrat in the white house. steve: is joe biden the guy to do it? >> if we could predict this, hello. if anything, we know about american politics is that no one can predict, particularly now. but i am 100% committed to democrats winning. lisa: have you been impressed with his candidacy so far. >> i'm not a candidate who wants to -- steve: you're a spiritual advisor. would you give him spiritual guidance if he is listening. i bet they clip this up, if you had advise for joe biden what would it be. >> my hope for joe biden and for all the other candidates show up as the best in this process. democracy is best served giving most who they are, what they believe. that is when mesh wins. i wish him well. i wish all candidates well. i will be doing my own, they
5:31 am
will do their thing on thursday night. i hope they all do well, i hope peep go to marianne 2020. brian: what are you doing? , streaming something live? >> yes. right afterwards. >> steve: like a counter point? >> my own offing. that is what debate is. steve: check out the book, "politics of love." marianne williamson. >> thank you. steve: up next, former secretary of state condoleeza rice will joint us on the couch. then the gronk and johnny damon. ♪ emu & doug with this key to the city.

5:36 am
understand. i mean i understand the glory of the game as a fan because you don't really get that anywhere else. once a week, 12 games on. then college football too, every win is running full speed at each other. it is very interesting. i used to go out there and do. >> how interesting is it to be on the outside? >> it is not that weird to me. i accepted it that i'm on the outside. i'm enjoying it but i mean, it was just very interesting to watch, wow i was one of those guys running full speed at each other, seeing big hits and everything. it is pretty cool. steve: now you teamed up with a cbd company and you know, one of the things people in their '50s and '60s, '70s are talking about all the time these days is cbd. a lot of people find relief for chronic pain, things like that. how do people regarding cbd, there are many different delivery systems out there, how do they figure out what is best
5:37 am
for them, whether gum or thing you do under your tongue, a patch or cream, what the correct dose is? >> well, the company i teamed up with, cbd medic, abacus health, it is topical cream. it has camphor in it, has menthol in it, about six other natural ingredients in it along with the cbd. and if you apply that on to a area that is needed, it takes away, gives thaw relief temporarily. steve: is it for muscles, joints? >> muscles, joints, arthritis, muscle pain, muscle bruises. brian: is it working for you? >> yes, it is working great. it is not going to heal something like a major, absolutely the injury, but you get muscle sprains, muscle bruises. i'm still active, waking out. you wake up, you're sore, apply it to the area.
5:38 am
instantly nice relief. you can go throughout the day. i haved ha a story, i jammed three of my toes playing soccer, black and blue. i have picture of my toes, black and blue. putting shoe on is brutal. who wants to put the shoe on. i apply the cream to my toes. it gives me relief. put my shoes on, going throughout the day doing what i have to do soccer is somehow. lisa: antonio brown. i've been watching this controversy. a lot of us have, got to get your opinion on it, what do you think? brian: he joined patriots forcing a release from the raiders. you were at the patriots game as they crushed steelers. >> the patriots performed well, looked really good, offense, defense, special teams, all three phases of the game. the gameplan was excellent. lisa: should they have brought him on? >> patriots always bring on players like that, do a great job. bill runs, bill is a unbelievable head coach and knows how to handle situations
5:39 am
like that. brian: what if he tapes one of bill belichick speeches inside locker room, like he did in pittsburgh. >> it will be interesting news from there. lisa: or recording a phone call. brian: at super bowl, you were in it every year, super bowl couple years ago i went in the van with the party family. you have craziest family ever in most fun way. >> yes. brian: here is a little of the moment, i saw how the gronks party. >> let's see it. brian: tell me what happens. [shouting] >> how long ago? that was -- [inaudible] >> party hard, party hard, when you're not partying hard, you need to prep yourself to party hard.

let's blow out the candles together! ok, let's huff and puff. like you do sometimes, grandpa? well, when you have copd, it can be hard to breathe. so my doctor said... symbicort can help you breathe better- starting within 5 minutes. it doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. symbicort helps provide significant improvement of your lung function. symbicort is for copd, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. it may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. symbicort could mean a day with better breathing. watch out, piggies! ask your doctor if symbicort is right for you. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.

since you're heading off to dad... i just got a zerowater. but we've always used brita. it's two stage-filter... doesn't compare to zerowater's 5-stage. this meter shows how much stuff, or dissolved solids, gets left behind. our tap water is 220. brita? 110... seriously? but zerowater- let me guess. zero? yup, that's how i know it is the purest-tasting water. i need to find the receipt for that. oh yeah, you do. ♪ >> we had a meeting scheduled. it was my idea. when i heard very simply they killed one of our soldiers, 12 other innocent people i said there is no way i'm meetings on that basis, there is no way of meeting. they're dead as far as i'm concerned. brian: that is the president yesterday talking about why he cut off the camp david talks
5:45 am
with the taliban and the sitting government. sitting with us is somebody that has seen it all, lived it all, former secretary of state under george w. bush, author of the economics. better world, choices to end the cold war, to create a global commonwealth. i think was a almost a simpler time, miss secretary. >> seems like it. brian: do you think the president made a good move to invitation to camp david number one and canceling to the conference, number two? >> let me speak to the canceling of the conference. it was a good decision. i am frankly relieved. all the signs were that the taliban was not serious about an agreement acceptable to us. the signs were they wouldn't even stalk to the afghan government, which has been our partner, democratically elected government for decade 1/2.
5:46 am
they would not make guaranties not having terrorists come back on their territory. we really can't sign an agreement that will undo all of the fines over the last 18 years. so i was relieved, as to camp david i would have probably chosen another venue, particularly this week as we look tomorrow to the anniversary of 9/11. it is not that camp david is in some sense sacred in that way. plo was probably a terrorist organization when arafat went there but the timing wasn't ideal. lisa: what do you make of the president's personal diplomacy approach, willingness to sit down with the taliban? >> if in fact looked like there was a good deal to close, all wars have to end and presidents have to be end them. i never-minded the president has to do personal diplomacy. you have to make sure it is well-prepared. when you have the president of the united states to go in, something has to happen. lisa: is it well-prepared? >> looks to me if this one was not quite there.
5:47 am
i know him very well. he worked for me. he is a capable negotiator. brian: born in afghanistan. >> born in afghanistan. knows the culture, but seems to me had kind of impossible task at this point to try to find an agreement that was acceptable to us. the taliban i also think had begun to think we wanted an agreement more than they did because of all that has been said, not just in this administration about pulling out troops, remember the pulling out troops goes back to the obama administration and so they have known for a long time america wants to end this war. i think they thought we would end it on any terms. steve: absolutely. that is what we're talking about right now. you in your new book, to build a better world, look back at the cold war, the last 40 years of, what is the main takeaway for you in describing what you have tab keled here? >> the main takeaway is one i think relevant to what we're looking at in afghanistan. in order to bring that better
5:48 am
world about in 1989, '90s, 91, germany will be unified 30 years next year. we had to be patient, resilient. they stayed in europe from 1945, for 45 years until germany was unified. we have been in korea since 1953 to make sure that korea and the korean peninsula stays peaceful. i think the real lesson of this book you can have great diplomacy which we did at the end of cold war with george h.w. bush and brent scowcroft and jim baker helmut kohl. >> and the germans which were so extraordinary. it was a basis of friendship, alliance, 45 years and american steadfastness, willing to stay the course until the terms were right. that's a lesson for any diplomat in any day. steve: to build a better world," it's a great sentiment and great
