3:02 am
been four police officers shot and killed since the start of the year according to the officer down memorial page. that is four too many. >> brian: all right. that's not it. meanwhile ice concerned jose rosales accused of killing harris county corporal charles galloway is illegal immigrant. the professional criminal has been on the run since 1996. rosales wanted for another murder in he will value sar door. he will appear before a criminal court this morning. right there that should be the story that everyone is leading with around the country. because the guy does not belong here. he has created chaos in a state that is desperate for some type of federal help to control their border. they have gotten a dial tone ever since president biden has taken office. >> ainsley: we saw that footage in brownsville, texas. our cameras were there. this is a little of what we known so far. thankfully we got tips and sent our cameras. in saw people getting off
3:03 am
federally funded buses walk into a fillings, back back out and put in taxies and transported to the airport. and they go to live with their relatives here in the country. they are illegal. and then we also saw the secret flights. that video footage was released by fox. and this is also funded by the government. they get on buss and they are taken to cities all over our country. >> steve: yeah, so the other day when we described the video from bill melugin's team, you know, an ice source says it looks like an ice release. we didn't know exactly what that was. apparently these are been going on. that's what ice is doing these days. they are not sending anybody back to their country of origin, but, instead, they are a travel agent for the most part for people who are in this country, illegally. and the joe biden administration is using ice to ferry them around to the various states. a quote from the ice source to fox news says between releases and the vaccine mandates, the
3:04 am
morale is at its lowest. imagine going to the office to make phone calls to coordinate travel for someone who came in illegally, some of them with criminal records. so the source called ice now an unofficial travel coordination agency. and, ainsley, to your point, ice was asked, hey, is the federal government paying for them to fly all over or go all over? and what the source said was that ice contacts the family and asks for an address where that person will be going. then they ask them to buy a ticket on a bus in that case or on an airplane. if they don't have the money or they say, you know, i'm not going to do that, an nfo buy business the ticket and then bills the federal government. so all those people are going somewhere thanks to the american government. >> ainsley: you are paying for it. >> brian: flmplet gos religious organizations krauthammer catholics, luted tran groups take the government money and facilitate getting
3:05 am
them fresh clothes stippens to pay. >> ainsley: food, shelter. and maybe provide the transportation. what happens is they call back and send for more. a lot of them in this case we are seeing a lot of single males. that's a risk, it's a violation of title 42. turned around. we are in a pandemic and back to the original point of the ice morale ice morale says if you do not as a ice officer you are fired. you are done. yet you are illegal immigrant more than likely not vaccinated judging by the countries you are from. you get. in how does that build up morale and logic? sometimes you see footage that you see on other channels and sometimes there are stories covered different ways. the reason why you are seeing these men being led out and then into our country is exclusive video because we are the only ones interested. we have great reporters it really started turning around with our drone team.
3:06 am
when our drone team started showing what was going on on the ground over the rio grande and saw there on the bridge, then everyone paid attention. the bridge emptied they go back. do you know what's so disturbing about this? it's not that they have bad policies. it's an intentional no policy which really frustrates the border states and just about every state. many of which were invited down to texas to meet with the governor of texas, 25 a.g.s showed up. and for about an hour they told their stories and tried to come up with a battle plan because they have been abandoned by the federal government. >> steve: here's what the governor of texas had to say about what's going on. the lawlessness on our southern border. >> it is astonishing that one law breaker, that we are having to wage legal action against, is the president of the united states. there are laws passed by the united states congress that the president is not enforcing.
3:07 am
there are united states constitutional provisions, that the president is not upholding. somebody has to hold the president accountable for his abandonment of the rule of law in this country. every single one of your states, the residents of your states are facing consequences sometimes deadly consequences. because of biden's open border policies. >> ainsley: he said the leading cause of death for americans ages 18 to 45 is fentanyl. not covid, not car accidents, not cancer. and going back to that ice story where this ice source is speaking, he says, that they are releasing migrants with criminals like assaults, dui, drug possessions and illegal reentry into our country. if they have a misdemeanor they are released into our country. the only ones that they hold are the ones that have serious felonies. he says the mass releases have been happening discreetly since february and he said the video, recording that we are able to
3:08 am
show we found out doesn't even scratch the surface. >> steve: yeah, it's been going on since february. obviously when a new administration comes in they get to decide how they are going to enforce the law. to say governor abbott's. they look at the laws as written. they figured out what loopholes to use and what they wanted to do and because the biden administration is the federal government and they enforce the law regarding migration. you know, their authority supersedes texas and every border state. and any state in the united states. so they decide what they want to enforce and more importantly, what they want to ignore. when you look at that, does that look like a problem to you or does that look like a really good idea? the biden administration has decided that is what we're going to do. it will be interesting to hear what they have to say now that fox news has revealed this video. and this has been going on for about 350 days.
3:09 am
ing. >> brian: they call out tiktok. remember, if you have a video that shows that masks don't work like dr. scott gottlieb say, they ban you from youtube. but tiktok is used as the number one operating vehicle for drug distribution communication and human trafficking. it's happening on a daily basis. tiktok, take it down. why can't -- that is a black and white issue. human trafficking. i'm pretty sure we can agree as a world not good. >> ainsley: greg abbott said the carltses in mexico are using tiktok to recruit smugglerrers to bring illegals in our country. >> steve: using tiktok to appeal to american kids hey you want to help us get some people over the border? do this. so they are trying to do something about it but to the governor's point down this texas, regarding the illegal drugs, texas is saying we have stopped enough fentanyl to kill
3:10 am
220 million people think about that. that's over half of every american could be killed by the dosage of fentanyl that the bad guys have brought into this country. we're going to be talking to ashley moody, she is the florida attorney general. she is coming up in the next hour of "fox & friends." >> ainsley: meeting with greg abbott. headquarter a hero, massive crowds expected to attend the funeral of slain nypd officer jason rivera later this morning. a live report from saint patrick's cathedral is coming up. >> brian: president biden heading to pennsylvania today to promote his infrastructure plans. some prominent keystone dem won't be there. are there more party problems that we know of? ♪ ♪ limu emu ♪ and doug. we gotta tell people that liberty mutual customizes car insurance so you only pay for what you need, and we gotta do it fast.

3:17 am
officer's his partner 27-year-old wilbert mora will also have his services february 2nd at saint pat's as well. back to you guys. >> steve: thank you very much, ashley. it's very noisy there because as you can see behind her they are closing down fifth avenue. they are creating a frozen zone. the "new york post" this morning on their cover, not only do they talk about the border crisis but they also say new york city stands with the new york police department and inside, look at this. here is a poster. and what they're asking people to do is take this poster to fifth avenue this morning at 9:00. and hold this up. patrick lynch had suggested that thousands of people flood that area to show that you support the police. and if you cannot go to fifth avenue what they suggest is you simply put that up in your window so that the people driving by, people come up to your house, they know that you
3:18 am
support the cops and you stand with the new york police department. >> ainsley: when i was driving in this morning, all the barricades were there. they are getting ready for the big crowds. i talked to a police officer yesterday who lives out on long island. he said i'm come in for the funeral. i need -- he has a side business and he was going to do some work in my house, and he said next week i can't come that day because i'm going to go officer mora's funeral, too. he says i try to go to every single officers' funeral. you can feel the effect when you drive down fifth avenue and dry past the cathedral and see the all officers getting ready when i passed by it i thought of the wife yesterday taking the coffin into saint patrick's cathedral for the initial services and then the big funeral is today. i thought she just walked on this very ground and comes here to bury her husband. >> brian: yeah, i mean, there is so much going on. the lives of these two men and also what's going on in the city. just when you think the whole city is mourning and getting on the same page despite what they
3:19 am
put out the washington, d.c. branch. the tires of four new york city police department patrol cars and van police vehicle from there in connecticut were slashed some time shortly around 6:30 wednesday in harlem right near where the vigil taking place. there is some people in new york city that are just flat out evil. the other story is this 16-year-old new york city evidently aspiring and successful rapper he shot a cop and at this hour he is walking free according to his lawyer he is back doing homework. he is out on a $250,000 bond. >> steve: 16-year-old cammeron williams also known as steve blue. there he is in his mugshot, posted a $250,000 bond. what that means is that $15,000 in cash. so he came up with it. because he has a record deal. and he got some of the advance money and so he got out of jail. what happened was 10 days ago today, cops were called to an
3:20 am
unruly crowd in one of the boroughs, the bronx. and this rapper, this guy who is now charged, was told by the cops take your hands out of your pockets. we want to see your hands. that's the case. we wanted to make sure you don't have a gun in your hand. it turns out the guy had a gun in his hand in his pocket. there was a scuffle with the cops. next thing you know, the gun goes off, hits the rapper in the groin but shoots this police officer who thankfully has been released. his name kasim pinont the prosecutors did ask for no bail but the judge said, you know what? we are going to give this young man a chance, even though he has got previous gun records on his arrest warrant. ains the judge is judge dennis boyle. he has come under a lot of fire for being overly quleent and patrick lynch with the police benevolent association shame on judge dennis boyle for allowing this to happen. the people of the bronx won't be
3:21 am
safe as long as he is on the bench. >> steve: yeah. >> ainsley: it's ridiculous what is happening here in new york city. this guy shot a cop. do you remember growing up i remember being a little girl and my dad walking down the hallway oh my word somebody shot the cop he is going to get the electric chair. we had that in south carolina at the time. that was the standard. if you shot a cop you were in big trouble. you were probably going to die. >> steve: why don't we still have that? >> brian: this guy missed time in jail. cammeron williams' attorney says cammeron has been released and will be back to his regular productive life focusing on schoolwork and music career. he is get on with his life as these cops continue to heal. patrick lynch as you alluded to said if anybody wants to know why we have a crisis of violence in the city or wife we are about to bury two hero police officers look no further than this disgraceful bail we lease this individual chose to carry illegal guns twice. he chose to fight and shoot a new york city police officer. there is no treason believe he
3:22 am
will not do the same exact thing when he is out on the street tonight. >> ainsley: he also had a 2020 gun possession arrest on his record and he was placed on probation for that one. >> steve: exactly. they were trying to help him because he is a juvenile there are people here in new york who want to change the law because currently if you are a juvenile, you are -- you go into family court rather than criminal court. so if somebody has a gun, if you are 16 or 17 years old, they want you to be part of the criminal court program but there are a lot of lawmakers that say no. no. >> ainsley: walked out of the detention center last night 7:00 in brooklyn. >> brian: the mayor said that's what i want and said no we are not doing that this story for actress golden legend goldy hawaiian. gold hahn.she is extremely conce most clear-thinking people about a generation of kids who are growing up in this pandemic very

3:24 am
people are frayed of air, spaces around the air around them. constant fear not seen in decades this tells us as a nation we have failed our children. >> ainsley: she goes on to say in the article that the cdc, the american academy of pediatrics and the u.s. surgeon general all have agreed that the state of our children's mental health is now at a level of national emergency. she says we have failed our children and she talks about the suicide attempt rate. she said it's gone up. she has been working with children's organizations for the last 20 years. started this organization mind up. nonprofit and focuses on the mental health of our kids. america has failed our children, she said. >> brian: no one ever brings up mental health. the kids, too dangerous. going to stayvaxed. a teacher feels as though it's too much of a risk. we are not going to worry about the kids and never come up in conversation. they are never represented at the white house. they are never represented at these medical sessions. you never hear it brought up instinctively from anthony fauci or the people that pretend to work with him. i do end with an optimistic note. she says we will survive the
3:25 am
covid-19 pandemic. i'm not sure we can survive an entire generation whose collective trauma seconds them hobbling into adulthood. we need more research, more preventative care and intervention. if we get it right kids could emerge as the strongest generation america has produced. can someone please focus on getting that part of the this pandemic right? >> steve: to your point, ainsley, we learned a lot during the pandemic. and they haven't really balanced the concerns with people who are vulnerable with the children. you know why -- do you know how they would have paid more attention to the children? >> ainsley: how? >> steve: if the children could vote. >> ainsley: right. >> steve: right? >> ainsley: i think about teenagers though. they're the ones really affected. little ones in different ways. these teenagers they didn't have the normal experiences that we did. and listen, life gets really stressful later on and you have to start paying bills and worrying about different things. these teenagers they are going through this at an early age. time of their lives. >> brian: enough done.
3:26 am

decide about -- private business can decide about your healthcare. noah, what can they do legally to get them back on the job? >> so legally my clients understood that they had a right to submit religious accommodation requests for the covid-19 vaccine. what this case comes down to is that the company decided to tell them that their religious beliefs were not valid and it accomplished that task by interviewing them for 15 minutes and making a judgment on whether or not they were telling the truth. so, in terms of getting them back on the job. the company can do the right thing now. that's what we want. we want the company to make amends for this profit that they put in place that stripped my clients of their rights under title vii of the civil rights act. >> brian: what kind of track are you on to get this back in court and get them back on the job? >> we are trying to move as quick as possible. always a few hurdles to jump through when bringing a lawsuit. we have 200 clients right now and working through the logistics of making sure all of

3:36 am
has been like i said kind of a punch in the gut of just waiting and still looking for a job that could match what we [inaudible] >> brian: noah, do you believe if you can win this case it will be a message even to the military to put the men and women back in uniform, to the hospitals here in new york city to let them go work again? >> it's a message to respect employees religious freedoms. they have a rate to request these exemptions to the vaccine. the employer should not be second-guessing and inserting its own judgment as to who is spiritual and who is not. and nothing says more about my client's religious convictions than the simple fact that they were willing to be terminated for them. that's key here and that's why we are going to win. >> brian: you see how often what they told us about the vaccine. what they told us about the mitigation efforts. how wrong they have been along the way. they for this. you guys should not be working. it's sinful. i appreciate you telling your

3:43 am
victor, wouldn't it be easy to worry about our southern border and make it so people who aren't supposed to can't cross it? >> that's a very logical solution for me. and as an agent that worked in mexico, and i was station dollars there and worked in those conditions yes with a corrupt government, i know firsthand how it is to deal with these governments, but they could end this right now. they have the ability to -- they make it sound like it's an impossible task when they know exactly what's going on down at the southern border. this is very purposeful. the border patrol agents understand that i just came back from a five-day tour on the border speaking to the agents themselves. and they are crushed. they are demoralized. and they basically have had enough with this administration not allowing them to do their jobs. guess what? we are feeling the effects, especially here in texas, where our police officers are being killed by illegal aliens. >> steve: absolutely. in fact, you brought me to our next topic and that is we now

3:45 am
steve. it is completely -- it's unrecognizable. i don't recognize our state. i don't recognize our country with, like you just said. we have these laws that have been passed legislatively in our country and completely being ignored by this administration. and it's frankly taken the lives not just of our police officers, and by the way i want to give my condolences to the family. i have been there. my partner was killed next to me 10 years ago and i was shot three times while we were in mexico development i know what it's like. i have been battle tested. i know the consequences of these open border policies under this administration. and that's why i'm running for this very important position of texas land commissioner. finally do something to secure our border. >> steve: no kidding. because texas, when we see what texas and your governor there are doing to try to stop the illegal migration compared to the open door policy of the administration. a lot of people are just scratching their heads. it it's like i thought it was illegal to cross the border without papers and whatnot. apparently not. victor avila, we thank you very much and good luck to you.

good message. >> brian: six law enforcement officers were shot around the country in the last two days. in st. louis a police officer very critical very unstable condition. again, it happened in and around st. louis a place where a lot of the anti-cop movement started in the so-called ferguson effect. three houston police officers were shot. we know one was in texas was killed over the weekend. a day after these two officers were shot. one would later succumb to his wounds on tuesday. but, add to all of this, the anti-cop feeling around the country and how to reverse it because while you sit there and say well, the cops haven't been empowered. the laws are pushing them back, the defunding is happening almost every major city, including a billion dollars cut out of this budget. how do you change things? one thing you could do to change things is change some of the laws. if joe biden had saw this thing without a political lens, he would say we have got to get rid of no cash -- this no cash bail reform. we got to get rid of that right away. we have to find a way to upgrade
4:08 am
the salaries of these people and empower things like the undercover cops to do their job. that was really outlined in today's "new york post." one of the editorials says joe biden can't just tell us about how bad guns are when he visits new york city. he goes on to say jonathan tobin if biden wants to help rather than virtue signal and tired talking points about gun control. he should join forces with suppress reluctant governor and legislator bail reform law thatt gift keeps on giving to criminals. denounce lawmakers around the country who think their main job is to those committing crimes rather than victims. sadly, there is no record of joe biden pushing back against politics. if you see at the border the disaster policy, he has done nothing. if you look at build back better, it was so liberal it was never going to pass. he didn't change it and now we have voting reform. it was so radical, it would nationalize elections. he knew it would pass. he didn't examine it. there is a hope but there is not
4:09 am
a practicality to that wish. >> ainsley: joe biden is coming here to new york next week. is he going to meet with our new mayor. and the article goes on to say i know what his message is going to be. he is going to say too many guns. because crime has gone up in this city. but he says he just virtual signals. he repeats these talking points. he said what the president and the mayor need to do is press our reluctant governor and the albany legislature to repeal these bail reform laws. he said what about the victims? you know, we are protecting the criminals and not the victims. by not prosecuting them he is talking about alvin bragg who is our new d.a. who is so woke, he says he is so worried about creating more equity that he thinks that by not -- by not prosecuting the criminals, who aren't doing the major crimes that that will present equity in our community. that's more important than putting these bad guys behind bars. >> steve: and because the new mayor here in new york, he has got a plan. he says albany has got to do something. if joe biden just comes down and says you have got to do something about guns, to sound
4:10 am
like the mayor. the mayor has a plan. joe doesn't have a plan. he has a talking point. you meant matily, you know, we have heard from the state legislature that thing about changing bail reform dead on arrival. right now as the "new york post" op-ed page wrote two days ago, right now governor hobleg has got the maximum leverage because ledges law temperature is negotiating the budget. if she really cares about safety and thinks that this no bail thing is a good idea she can't possibly but many democrats do. right now she should try to negotiate and say okay, democrats, and republicans, if you want this, i want that. now is the time to let's make a deal. otherwise, another year or two of the same kind of stuff as a funeral for a fallen hero starts in two hours just about two blocks from where we are sitting. >> brian: also a mayor with a
4:11 am
lot of political capital right now combine with the police chief countless press conferences demanding all those things take place if they really believed it buckled his party. he got elected as a common sense democrat which implies that there isn't a lot of common sense with democrats. and he could use his political capital that window is open for about six months. let's see him use it for the right things. >> ainsley: let's talk about schools because covid is another concern. parents are starting to get frustrated not only because you had the national school board association sending that letter to the white house calling parents domestic terrorists and possibly the education secretary miguel cardona being involved in that because, if you read that email, it looks like he was involved in it. >> brian: he was. >> ainsley: you know, he is under fire now for that he faces allegations of pushing equity and hasn't done enough to keep our kids safe during covid and getting back to normal sooner. so this is what he said. he is calling on the united states to re-set after covid and reimagine -- there is that word again, education. >> while we must stay cog than
4:12 am
zandt and supportive of the challenges our heroic educators face daily, to keep our schools open today, we must also simultaneously meet this moment in our country's history. a moment to reimagine education. we can't lose this moment. a chance for a re-set in education. by going back to the same pre-pandemic strategies that didn't address iniquities. instead, let's do what america does best. let's turn crisis into opportunity. >> steve: how many times have we heard never let a good crisis go to waste? while he made those comments yesterday, it's not exactly clear how he is reimagining or what he would like to change. so specifics though that he has suggested and these are things we can all get behind. he would like to see teachers not paid much, you talk about your sister all the time like to see teachers get paid more.
4:13 am
more money to low income school areas. universal pre-k which is very popular with a lot of people. increasing the reading levels. we'll all like american kids to read better and know more stuff. this is the thing that i think is almost ironic. he want to create more authentic parent and family engagement but over the last six months, when we have seen the families engaged at the school board level, so many of the school boards won't listen, hello, loudoun county, the irony is that he, to the earlier point, has been accused of being one who asked for the national school board association to write the letter to the administration comparing parents to teachers. and using the patriot act. he has denied that that has been used. but, nonetheless, he wants to reimagine but doesn't really give a lot of clues. >> brian: i talked to a lot of teachers, teach in new york city. they will can't get the parents involved. it's almost impossible. then when this virtual schooling happened, you couldn't even get them to press their kids to get
4:14 am
in front of the camera. so that's the problem. a lot of -- some of the parents want to be involved and we see that issue with some people that don't want them involved at all. and the other one is a lot of parents are just not involved, whether it's a single parent working two jobs or just not hands on with their kids. and i just think if you look at the dollars that pour into the school system in new york city, you would see that money is not the issue. it's what they are spending it on. how they are doing it what the curriculum is. and i would love to see teachers make more. but if you break down where it is, they actually think there is a lot of fat in that budget. and i'm so encouraged by eric adams choice of education secretary or chancellor because he is for the private schools. he likes the -- he likes the academies, and he is for accountability. when it comes to teachers. so, you know, that could be his hidden gem. >> ainsley: when it comes to schools a hard three years now with remote learning and the masking, cancellations of proms, field trips.
4:15 am
parents aren't allowed inside the classroom anymore. to drop your kid out in front. kids are wearing masks. and has been very stressful. there has been some good that's come out of it when you go to the d.c. area. and those counties there. when you go to. >> steve: and you have. >> ainsley: and we have. we have been to chicago and talked to parents and sat down and had these conversations. many of them did not know who was on their school board. do you know who is on your child's school board? these parents we talked to they learned each of the members of their school board. they started going to school board meetings and speaking out and become more involved in their kids' classroom and what they're learning when they noticed some of these kids are learning crt and so they would go and complain to the schools. we all got a glimpse of what our children are being taught inside the classroom, which has been a gift to us. we had fox digital go to pennsylvania and they talked to parents who were stressing the involvement in children's schooling and how great that has been. watch this. >> i view my role in my child's education as being central to it. >> i am as their mom i do often
4:16 am
know what's best for them. >> we are getting realtime feedback from our student when they come home each day. >> some of the problems we are seeing today are due to the fact that parents fell asleep at the wheel. the pandemic has been an opportunity for parents to get a better understanding of what their kids are learning. who are these people that are making decisions for the kids? >> do we always make the right decisions for our kids? i can say no. but i do make what i feel are the right decisions for how i want for my children to grow up. >> steve: check that out on and this is one of the reasons why in the wake of what happened down in the commonwealth of virginia, more people are actually running for school board. >> if they have got the time and the opportunity, they want to sit there. and they want to have the input. others are, you know, they are just talking to the teachers more. they are listening to their kids more. my kids left the high school five years ago. six years ago. i still talk to the principal. i talked to him yesterday about something. and, do you know what?

>> if russia invades ukraine, one way or another, nord stream 2 will not move forward. as senator cruz likes to say, i don't quite him often but as he likes to say it's currently a hunk of metal at the bottom of the ocean. >> brian: state department warning russia if they make a move into ukraine the u.s. will make nord stream 2 pipeline sit useless at the bottom of the sea. it actually bypasses ukraine, by the way. the white house flatly denying reports that president biden told ukraine's president to brace for impact of a russian invasion on yesterday's call. let's bring in fox news strategic analyst retired four star general jack keane.
4:25 am
i will bring you both things. first on nord stream 2. can you tell me what the impact would be if we convinced the germans not to finish it? >> well, certainly, listen. nord stream 2 never should have existed creating that kind of dependency of germany and europeans russia a known adversary. a huge strategic blunder by america, right for trump to go after it on sanctions. wrong for biden to remove those sanctions. we are overstating the value of it now as a deterrence to putin just in this crisis alone. because the fact is there is no income coming from nord stream 2. it's never been ache at this i have thed. and putin is already weaponizing the pipeline going in to ukraine. he has cut back close to 50% on the natural gas. he has already beginning to do that and cut down his own income for the sake of the crisis. but, should we -- should nord stream 2 be sanctioned?
4:26 am
certainly. never get activated certainly i agree with that don't the value of it in this crisis. >> brian: call if correct we are done giving them weapons. we gave them $200 million worth of weapons over the last few months. the baltic states have helped out. germany has sent helmets. that's it. do they have enough to hold off from a russian invasion and survived it. >> even if we gave them everything they wanted i'm not certain, one, they wouldn't be able to hold off the russian invasion and, two, obviously it would be tough. they would impose significant costs. listen, i mean, the russian's lessons learned from 2014 in eastern ukraine they look at that as a military failure. they were never able to take all the territory they wanted. at that time ukraine had a very immature military. it was the civilians that joined the fight that made the difference. and that's why we have so many conventional forces here parched and ready to go. >> we have different than the 2014 incursion.
4:27 am
i do think -- i don't believe it's imminent because we are still in a diplomatic phase and putin is going to run that out as much as he can to see if he can get some concessions. after all, that was his major objective here. but, and some of the units aren't all in place yet. brian. the main effort, which would be in eastern ukraine, they still have some units to move in there and they still have more units to move into belarus and of course we have the olympics coming february 4th and 20th installation that would compromise president xi and take him off the world stage. but, some time after that i think, it's clearly there ukrainians know what's really going on here. we don't have to tell them what's happening here. i mean, they have informants and they are in close contact with what happened in the russian military. so they have a sense of what the timing is and they certainly have the sense in terms of what their own fate is. >> brian: the way i understand it there was a new big
4:28 am
sentiments some people didn't want any part of the west and ukraine. dombas region sectioned off. they don't vote. now what's happened since 2014. more of a push. ukrainian nationalism. push from russia to the west. vladimir putin has lost the minds of ukrainian people. who he always claimed want to be part of russia. >> yeah. i'm glad you brought that up. brian. i mean, that is so insightful. because, in their own lessons learned, from the 2014 ukrainian operation in eastern ukraine, not only did he consider it a military failure, but he has considered it a political failure, because, the intent and pursuance of that operation was to make certain that the new antigovernment regime that was now in power, given his russian stooge was pushed out by his people, he wanted them to stop moving towards the west in terms of economic, political, and military immigration and guess what? guess what?
4:29 am
it galvanized the three administrations to do just that and zelensky has done more than his two predecessors that is at the heart of some of the frustration that putin is bearing over should he or shouldn't he take matters into his own hands to change that government. >> steve: another great job outlining what could be one of the most impact offul thing to happen to past relations since the end of the cold war clearly. thanks so much, general. >> have great weekend, brian, you and the team. >> brian: you too, thank you. up next, new shocking revelations about the biden's ties to chinese businessmen. how the family raked in $30 million. pete hegseth and rachel campos-duffy are going to break it down for us. they seem so happy in those pictures. ♪ ♪ if you have advanced non-small cell lung cancer, your first treatment could be a chemo-free combination

4:34 am
reached courtesy of individuals with spy ties. and joe biden personally benefited from his family's foreign deals. >> steve: let's talk this over with "fox & friends weekend" co-host rachel campos-duffy and pete hegseth. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: rachel, you know, when you play what if, what if this were a republican whose family had gotten $31 million from five deals with the chinese that would be a big story. there doesn't seem to be curiosity from the mainstream media. >> rachel: none, actually this should be the biggest story in the country. this shows that our president is potentially compromised by chinese spies, by the chinese communist government. that he enriched himself and his family. nobody in their right mind believes that hunter biden is an amazing businessman made $30 million because is he bright and intelligent and business savvy. everyone understands what this
4:35 am
is. this should have been the number one story during the election because we ought to have been able to go to that election with all the information but the media and big tech blocked it because they wanted joe biden in office and the people who are hurt are the american workers. because if our president is compromised is he putting his family and his secrets, his family secrets ahead of the best interest of the american people. >> ainsley: you know, pete, what's frustrating about this we see these secret flights when you are talking about immigration. they say they are following the law. but then in the dead of night they are doing -- and then you see follow the science with covid and they tell us to do one thing and we see many of them doing the opposite or they tell us advice and then that advice changes over and over. then we see this with china is it pay for play? all this corruption and the media doesn't report on any of it. so they just get away with it. >> pete: yeah, the elites think they play by different rules. of course the communist chinese
4:36 am
targeting elites and have. fang fang and eric swalwell same deal different transactions. with the bidens ultimate it's like a bad bond film. in this case the enemy really does want global domination and they really have compromised the family of the current occupant of the white house. so the more you unravel it, the more you start to understand why they won't take china on in a tough way when it comes to the origin. the business of the bidens is politics and enriching and using politics for their business. the business of the trumps was real business. donald trump was like a real international and national businessman who went into politics and therefore they scratched and crawled for every connection he might have that means is he compromised and that he was tougher on russia and tougher on the chinese, especially as it pertains to ukraine than biden ever has been. this as rachel said should be a massive story. they won't because the elites, who also are happy to benefit connection to the chinese and the media as well won't report
4:37 am
on it and they haven't. >> brian: let's just hope the president does not lift some of these tariffs because china has violated everything on phase one from the trade agreement on place from the trump administration. i know you do most of the booking yourself, rachel, pete is unreachable during the week. so what have you done? >> i'm going to tell you who i booked. first everyone should read that "new york post" article by peter schweizer. our number one guest is brian kilmeade. we worked really hard to book him and got him. dan bongino, lara trump, representative ashley hinson. dan bongino, lawrence and of course enes kanter who we also love hang. he changed his name to enes freedom we should change that on the kyron. >> steve: we are going to be watching because it's going to be really snowing here in the northeast tomorrow. pete and rach chem, thank you very much. >> ainsley: thanks, guys. >> rachel: bye you guys. >> brian: see you tomorrow. steve: meanwhile, let's go down

4:47 am
to your local forecast as we get through the next 12 to 24 hours. blizzard warnings in effect though for parts of those areas i mentioned the delmarva up towards new jersey and maine, that means winds, strong winds for duration of time, 3 to 6 hours. and that's going to make travel impossible. so, the bulk of the snow is coming overnight tonight. all day saturday. and all day saturday event. those are the snowfall totals so a wide swath of 5 to 8 inches. some areas are going to get 8 to 12. then the jackpot, we think, is going to be new england, connecticut, easter, long island, i think, massachusetts up towards maine. they could get over 2 feet of snow. so, ainsley, bottom line is, be prepared, we're going to get a lot of snow. plowable snow, probably. and just prepare for the worst because we are going to get quite a bit of snow and maybe some blizzard conditions also. back to you. >> ainsley: okay, thank you, janice. coming up, president biden is heading to pittsburgh this morning to promote
