3:01 am
brian: i would say this, shania twain i have never heard that song from her before but i would know she would sing. i'm convinced it is her. where are the people on 6th avenue. that's light. i thought we were supposed to be getting more people back to work? what's going on? did everyone hit snooze today? steve: maybe. brian: we are up early today. let's talk about what's happening in georgia because the governor is taking action. steve: he is. after a lawless weekend of 30 shootings down in the atlanta area and five people killed and the ransacking of the highway patrol, the headquarters of the georgia state patrol, they called out the national guard. yesterday, governor brian kemp, a republican, put out this particular statement, and he said this: peaceful protests hijacked by criminals with a dangerous destructive agenda. now innocent georgians are being targeted, shot and left for dead. this lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city.
3:02 am
i have called a state of emergency and called up the georgia national guard because of the safety of our citizens always comes first. this measure will allow troops to protect state property and dispatch state law enforcement officers to patrol our streets. enough with the tough talk. we must protect the lives and livelihoods of all of georgians. so, he has dispatched the troops to the capital building. the governor's mansion and department of public safety, which on sunday, several dozen people armed with rocks, spray paint and fireworks broke windows and tried to set the building on fire. ainsley. ainsley: he ordered the occupied wendy's where rayshard brooks was killed cleared out. the 8-year-old little girl was killed right across the street from that wendy's. >> enough is enough. 31 shootings, five killed over the fourth of july weekend. not just in the atlanta area and georgia area. up here in the bronx a man was shot dead. did y'all see that video.
3:03 am
guy crossing the street holding his 6-year-old daughter's hand. a man comes up in a car a passenger rolls down the window and shoots the guy dead in front of his 6-year-old. in queens a 4-year-old boy hit several times by bullets. in new york city we are seeing our crime is just skyrocketing. fourth of july weekend 40 shot, 10 killed. d.c., 11-year-old boy was leaving a cookout his mom as organized. left to get his ear buds and phone charger. five guys firing shots at each other. one of them hits him. he was a star football player. he wanted to go pro. and he is dead. six kids ages 6 to 14 years old, brian killed the fourth of july weekend. brian: situation where atlanta they are taking action. new york, you have a governor who is above it all and mayor not qualified to do his job or he is enjoying. this when asked about the rise in violence, when you have burglary up 51%. when you have 130% increase in
3:04 am
shootings, when you have a murder rate that's up 35%. when asked about it, he said it's pretty muchs pandemic. are you kidding me? it's your redick columbus bail policy which makes it impossible to hold people. ainsley: and defunding. brian: compassionate release from rikers island prison where people don't deserve to be out of prison. protests go crazy and you diminish the cops. in terms of what mayor lightfoot is doing in chicago with the numbers an embarrassment to the country that's been the case for the last 10 years, especially now, she claims to think it is more sexism from the president and healthcare. listen to these mayors trying to explain themselves out of this. >> we also saw too much violence this weekend. and this is something that we have a lot of work to do to address. and it's directly related to all the dislocation that's happened over these last four months with the coronavirus. getting moo warmer and warmer
3:05 am
weather and feeling the effects of people being couped up for months and the economy, obviously, has not re-started to anywhere the extent we need it to. there is a lot less for people to do. we have a real problem here. >> all these forces are coming together at the same time and making it very difficult. the ecosystem of public safety that isn't just law enforcement but is local, community based, they too have really been hit hard by covid. brian: are you killed me? please don't tell me you buy that here is the editorial from the "new york post." it's on the cover and essentially says bill do something. smaller it says dave do something. david continue constituency was overwhelmed by the position and unable to get crime under control. they had to combine people like rudy giuliani with commissioner bratton. kerik. they drove down and made this one of the safest cities in the world. now everything has turned on its
3:06 am
head. you have a situation where new york is going up in flames. and the mayor expects us to buy the fact that it's because of the pandemic while the governor hesitate yeah, that mayor is really bad. will the governor take responsibility for anything? not for the nursing home situation? he did an investigation on himself. it turns out that he blame-free not for what's going on in the city. he takes a step back from everything. steve: it is interesting though. and, brian, in the flashback, bill do something, they do something, when you look at history, crime was completely out of control when david continue constituency was elected. ainsley: 30 years ago. steve: yeah. 30 years ago. he ran on i'm going to be the toughest mayor in new york. things spiraled out of control. commission and took recommendations. he took a year to institute hiring an additional 6,000 cops and also starting the safe
3:07 am
cities program. ultimately he lost his re-election. we wound up with ray kelly and all sorts of, you know, the they instituted all sorts of things to make the streets safer. so now, fast forward to 2020, the 7th day of the 7th month and things are spiraling out of control. one of the problems was just in the last month or so what they did was got rid of the anticrime unit, so the ne "new york post" makes a bunch of suggestions you have got to reverse that you have got to end the covid compassionate jail releases. you have got to fix the no bail law. community leaders and politicians need to be clear that resisting arrest, taunting police is unacceptable. they say the defund movement has become a bi word for delegitimizing. it's commission for people to ignore antagonize entice police. that's where we're on this tuesday morning. here is the commissioner of new york city police department der
3:08 am
mitt shay and and he is slamming new york city policies for the shooting. just exactly what we were talking about saddest part this has been predictable. you heard me say a storm was coming. pat. we are in the middle of it right now and perfect storm of sorts with the liker's population about half. where is the other half. we transferred them to the streets of new york city. and it's extremely frustrating. what we need is support and that's in short supply. we need tools, we need laws that make sense. and then we need resource. those three things and we can turn this around quickly. steve: clearly he is frustrated. you were watching the white house press briefing yesterday, kayleigh mcenany was
3:09 am
frustrated as well. at one point at the conclusion she said -- i'm going to paraphrase. i cannot believe of all the reporters in this room you asked me a dozen questions about the confederate flag and nobody asked me a single question about these weekend shootings. crime shut off control in certain sectors, ainsley, and for some reason, a lot of people are not talking about it. ainsley: well, people asked for this. this is what they wanted. they wanted chop zones police-free zones. if you got arrested. you don't have to pay bail. go out on the street and commit more crimes. if you had covid in the jail or they were worried about covid in the jail so they let plirchs out. they were pouring water on the cops right out on the street. steve: buckets. ainsley: police officers turning their backs on bill de blasio not too long ago and we this situation. and bill de blasio blossomgameing it all on covid. there are consequences to. this little kids are dying on our streets.
3:10 am
because they are getting caught in the crosshairs of these bullets. >> the grandfather of that devon in d.c. we need police. crime is getting worse. you have less police officers, who is going to come when there is a need for police services? brian: i would like to add, too. steve: what did donald trump too? he offered the services of the national guard to anybody who needed them to feel safe. ainsley: they make it political. this is not a time for politics. this is the time for the president. he is offering extra help. these mayors need to take the extra help. brian kemp says because the narrowing is come in. now my police officers can go out on the roads and communities. they don't have to guard of the capitol. they don't have to guard police. steve: it's about priorities. ainsley: exactly. brian: just to add the key is the democratic mayor is getting along with the republican governor. you have a democratic mayor in new york and a governor that refuses to take any action at all and a mayor and governor who don't get along even though they are in the same party. that's why people are dying,
3:11 am
shootings are going up. ainsley: you are talking about georgia and atlanta area? brian: you have a republican governor getting along with a democratic mayor who happens to test positive with the coronavirus. here you have two democrats who don't speak to each other and speak to each other and we are in the crosshairs. steve: so anyway, a lot going on on this tuesday morning it. is 6:11 now and carley shimkus has got the headline duties and she starts down in texas. carley: that's right. we will start here with a fox news alert. a texas deputy constable recovering in the hospital this morning after he was shot near houston. harris county constable mark herman says deputy christopher henriks was shot with a suspect by a rifle. that suspect is dead. posted this photo hendrix family at the hospitals as he underwent surgery. is he now in stable condition and will make a full recovery. coronavirus caves are on the rise and now 32 states but now one doctor is trying to reassure
3:12 am
the country about the spike. >> it's not a time to panic. it's not a high risk disease for people under 70. it is certainly not a high risk for disease for people under 30 or 40 who almost all recover. we have to look at that. carley: as just mentioned atlanta mayor keisha lance bottoms posted positive on twitter saying she had know symptoms. tate reeves is isolating at home as he awaits test results. the governor says he came into contact with a state lawmaker who tested positive for the virus. lawmakers in new jersey will divide which democrat are l. take on jack van drew this fall. the democrat turned republican is one of two items to break ranks and vote against articles of impeachment for president trump. five democrats are vying for the nomination. it's also primary day in delaware. voters in joe biden's home state will decide whether or not they back the former vice president.
3:13 am

3:14 am
passion was celebrities -- excuse me were soldiers. ainsley: he performed at the white house super bowl. went to the middle east, performed for our troops. he was such a rock star and this is old, old traditional country music. he is so loved, especially all around the world but down in the south they love him because it's old school country music. he was so nice to us. every time he was here he was basically part of the family. watch this. >> it's so cool ton standing next to this famous, famous celebrity. steve: he is a legend. pete: can't get better. steve: ladies and gentlemen, charlie daniels today. brian: pouring rain you packed the place anyway. steve: charlie have you been one of the best friends to "fox & friends." >> retire sit around in the living room and play guitar. >> god blessed me for almost 60 years to let me do what i want to do for a living. steve: you are somebody who loves politics. you are a businessman advocating for our veterans for years. >> trying to help our vets as

3:16 am
steve: that is something. before i came down, i looked on my shelves in my office, and there is a hat, a charlie daniels hat that he gave me years ago. he has been coming on the show for over 20 years. a member of the hall of fame, country hall of fame. he was the son of a lumberjack who actually played the fiddle and the guitar. but you didn't realize this charlie daniels played on three of bob dylan's albums. ringo starr and leonard cohen. in 1977 jimmy carter invited the charlie daniels band to perform at his inaugural. over the years he became a little more political and more conservative. he wrote in america which was in response to the iran hostage crisis. and in 2003, he published an open letter to the hollywood bunch in defense of george w. bush's iraq policy. brian: one thing about him, he was all about the men and women who fight. he was still fighting for them until his last day. i asked him, too.
3:17 am
about the coronavirus are you worried? he said no. i never leave my farm i have nothing to worry about. i also asked him what do you think about new country? he said i don't like it at all. he liked the old country best. charlie daniels passed away at the age of 83. we're back in a moment. i should get a quote. do it. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪

apes ainsley another deadly weekend in chicago. police say 87 shot and 17 killed. 12 shooting victims were minors. two of the children 7-year-old natalia wallace and 14-year-old vernando jones died from injuries. next guest went to the scene victim's advocate and founder of
3:22 am
resources. pastor donovan pryce. he joins us now. good morning, dr. pryce. >> good morning. ainsley: what did you find when you went to the scene that little girl was at her grandmother's house playing on the sidewalk. it was a 4th of july celebration and she was killed. >> absolutely. and that's something that, you know, we can all relate to is plays at grandma's house. fourth of july holiday from what i understand there were lots of kids out there playing the yard was packed with kids and gunfire unfortunately erupted. ainsley: i know on june 27th you were on our show after june 27th. i remember steve interviewed you because you talked about going to visit with the gaston family they lost 20-month-old child. mom in the car driving with her little child. look how precious he is sitting in his car seat and shots fire out at the laundry matt while leaving. little one will never graduate or have a wedding. generations are affected.
3:23 am
what was that like when you visit with that mom and what are some solutions? >> utter chaos, of course. and sadness, grief beyond grief. some of the worst things you could ever imagine a mother losing her child. blood all other the mother. got blood on me. she herself had a graze wound to her head. since then a 3-year-old i worked with who was shot as well. solutions are many. perhaps as many solutions are needed as there are people with problems, which is the entire city. so, i think the solutions not addressed yet because they are too ugly and scary for people to look in the face and address even. ainsley: i know in new york city we are seeing crime go up. crime was -- we had different leaders in office here in new york and crime went down. now we are back where we were 30 years ago and people are outraged. we have reasons for it. because i live here.
3:24 am
i know what those reasons are what are the reasons in chicago? we continuously report on crime there. >> well, you can say that there are a million reasons and there surely are a million reasons from poverty, from hopelessness, from lack of love. it could be parenting. from agendas. on the political level. things of that nature from guns running rampant on the streets drugs, gangs. ainsley: from a christian perspective as a pastor what do we do? i remember when jesus was on the cross he said god why have you forsaken me. many people feel like i know god is still there what's a christian perspective? what's a message for our country. >> message for our country if you are a praying person now is the time to pray. prayer always comes with action. churches getting out of the walls. realizing that you still got --
3:25 am
you still got the to reach the lost. the original message just like in basketball they say sometimes have you got to go back to the basics. now we have got to pray and hit the streets. we have got to care for each other realizing that these children that die are our children. surely they maybe somebody else's child but they are our children. they are -- it's our block. every block. we have to take back our cities. ainsley: that's right. thank you so much, pastor, for being with us. solutions and resources.org if you want more information it's a wonderful organization. god bless you. thank you for being with us. >> god bless you, thank you. ainsley: florida's governor ron desantis pushing back on calls reopening. >> you can have society function in a way that keeps people safe. still want people going to work but do it in a way that you take basic precautions. ainsley: what's the right balance? dr. marc siegel is on deck.
3:26 am
3:27 am
3:28 am
3:29 am
3:30 am
steve: it is exactly 6:30 here in no new york city on tuesday d headlines now. the department of homeland security is considering its options after appeals court ruling the court blocking a trump administration policy denying asylum to refugees. it would not allow asylum-seeking -- rather, asylum seekers coming to the country to enter the united states. the supreme court could take up the case next year. we will keep you posted. house democrats unveiled two bills aimed at stopping the border wall. the first would prevent any military money from being used to pay for construction other would block dhs funding for the law. brian: nonstarter. florida governor ron desantis insisting he will not roll back
3:31 am
measures to reopen. >> the legislative is you can -- we have to have society function. you can have society function in a way that keeps people safe. we still want people going to work but do it in a way that you take some basic precautions to keep people working. keep society functioning and combat it that way. brian: so what is the right balance? here to weigh in is fox news medical contributor dr. marc siegel doctor siegel, does governor desantis have it right? >> yes. brian. i think he does. i think it's inspiring. it's what i call laser or a surgical approach to this problem. what is the problem? we are seeing a lot of younger people congregating together at beaches and bars. what is governor desantis and governor abbott of texas? they close the bars. they limit indoor dining. do you know what's happening? too early to be sure that i'm right, yesterday the number of new cases in florida was down to 6,000 which is dropping. the case numbers have doubled over the past few weeks.
3:32 am
i'm seeing a decreasing in trends yesterday. 47 deaths. that's -- deaths are extremely low. in the state of florida and around the country. i think his main point here, brian, is if he doesn't take that approach and ends up rolling everything back, then the collateral damage is enormous there is a reason people are trying to break the bonds of the lockdowns because of all the economic psychological and emotional and physical effects of this. medical and depression. all of these things and economic. huge costs. brian: i'm looking at dr. scott atlas of the hoover institute. he says the chances of people over 70 years old of surviving the i fatality rate is .04%. 99.6% chance you will survive. stop focusing on the cases. >> i agree with that completely brian. let's also point out according to recent statistics out of cdc,
3:33 am
if you are under 44 years old, your chances of 3.9% of all the deaths are under the age of 44. so we are talking about protecting people in nursing homes, which governor desantis has been thinking about. protecting people with pre-existing conditions. people who are obese. people who have chronic problems. lung and heart problems. we need to protect those people. but the spread among the young is not what is reading to the deaths or the hospitalizations. brian: so we have about four months or three months to get ready for school depending on the state you are in. new york, cases plummeting and things reopen. we cannot get a commitment to open up schools from the governor. listen. >> there has been no decision yet as to whether or not we are reopening schools. we want kids back in school for a number of reasons. but, we are not going to say children should go back to school until we know it's safe. in the meantime, i'm telling all school districts to come up with
3:34 am
a reopening plan. brian: good, come up with a reopening plan. doctor, from what you know about the coronavirus with the right consultation, should every school be able to open? >> yes, brian. absolutely. it shouldn't even be a question at this point. brian: yes. >> look, as a physician, i'm on the front lines, what about teachers? the risk to teachers is so much lower than it is to doctors. this is a service pro-possession. most of them if they were asked would say i want to teach. it's so limited online teaches. there is so much loss especially among our young. we need the schools to open. the risks will be very low in new york. elsewhere as well. mild cases among the very young. very few in new york. and the teachers can be protected and they want to teach. we must reopen schools. brian: you cannot put a second and first grader on a laptop for a year and not see huge decline. it's impossible for the parents to go back to work. it's impossible for the kids to make progress.
3:35 am
this is what these people are in power for. make it work. use health professionals. get it done. not getting it done is not an answer. >> there's no question about that. there this is not a question mark. the amount of destruction to society if we continue to do this to our children is devastating. as you said, online learning, you need to get together and learn. let's teach children in schools about social distancing, about taking precautions. that's what they should be teaching in schools. brian: yep. >> that's hugely important. take to have the table, open new york schools. brian: not against opening up schools. you will offer your services to consult with anybody. because you have so much free time. dr. siegel, thank you so much. coming up straight ahead. the supreme court ruling states must back the popular winner their elections. so what does that mean for november?

for over 100 years, realtors® have been providing expert guidance, helping people find new places to dream and thrive. when you're ready... look for the r. brian: welcome back. another landmark ruling on the supreme court. justices upholding state laws requiring electorrers to back the winning candidate in the state's race. why is this a thing? steve: there is going to be an election in the first tuesday of november, brian. this was a bone of contention for some. we call in judge andrew napolitano. in the past, lower courts have split on their and, in fact, one had said the constitution envisioned electricitiers shoule
3:41 am
able to vote their conscious. it's a victory that the rule of law all the justices said electors cannot go rogue. >> electors cannot go rogue in states that prohibit them from going rogue. where the states are silent the electors can vote for whoever they want. i know this sounds a little confusing. as we all know from 2016 and even in 2,000, the american public does not directly elect the president. the voters choose electors from the states. each state has the same number of electors as it does members of congress. so, if you have 35 members of congress, you have 37 elect torres, 35 members not house plus two in the senate. we know from bush vs. gore the dispute between then vice president gore and texas governor george bush in 2,000 that the states can decide how
3:42 am
they want their electors to be chosen. stated differently, and brian knows this from his work on american history. for the first 40 years of the country there were no popular elections. the state chose their electors through various means of smaller conventions and input by the state legislature. so if a state says to electors you shall vote the way the popular vote goes in our state. they must do it. if the state says to electors you shall vote the way the popular vote goes in the nation, they must do it. the latter is what some of the states are going to try and pull off this next time it remains to be seen if they do it. ainsley: kids are being killed all over the country on the fourth of july weekend. and our mayor here in new york mayor de blasio says the coronavirus is the reason for a lot of the violence going on answered also is blaming the
3:43 am
court system. listen to what he said. >> over my point of view the most central issue that happened over the weekend is the fact that the court system is not functioning. when our police effectuate an arrest, they don't have the same follow through they are used to seeing from the court system. ainsley: well, the court system spokesman was upset about that and basically said to the mayor you need to look in the mirror. he released in statement the mayor is blaming the courts for the recent spike in violence in new york city is absurd. pa tently false and ridiculous. the courts have operated continuously operating throughout the pandemic. arraigning defendants, holding hundreds of hearings and conferencing thousands of cases. he should be looking in the mirror not gazing out a window. what do you think as a judge? >> i think it would be better if de blasio remain silent.
3:44 am
this is absurd. he is the fault for many of these problems. his anti-police attitude, his defunding not totally but substantially defunding the police department, his pushing for this horrific absurd bail system that we have in new york. these are all typical left wing liberal mantras that have resulted in the horrific spike in crime over the weekend. i have been complaining for two weeks and we -- go ahead, brian. brian: judge, if you are the police commissioner iewnsd know everything you just said is true, how do you keep your job and restore order? is it possible? >> i don't think it is. when you have a mayor like bill de blasio in new york and the mayor forgive me i'm forgetting her name in seattle. the police have a moral obligation to do their jobs even if the politicians that are their bosses tell them not to.
3:45 am
i have said this before i will say it again. the police in seattle should have defied the mayor and protected life and protected property in that six square block area of seattle. and the police commissioner in the city of new york will probably lose his job but he will do the right thing and he will save life and save property and go down in history as the person that did the right thing he might spark a public movement for the police to do the right thing when mayors find political support amongst the class of people who want to get rid of police. then they handcuff the police. the police should be immune from that kind of handcuffing. otherwise, you will call 911 and no one will answer. brian: which is exactly the add donald trump is running. steve: should not be politics in policing just shouldn't because look what happened. judge, thank you for joining us on this tuesday morning. >> all the best, guys. brian: without a tie.

that's the real moment there this time another fisherman gets pulled in. he managed to hang on. they eventually brought the fish up and later released it. >> who knew grouper were that big. brian: you released it? carley: so tasty. that's 450 pounds of yum. steve: that's a lot of grouper. ainsley: hand it over to janis she is back. hey, j.d. >> good morning. feels like summertime for those enjoying a week off.

3:55 am
celebrities. he can't face the media, it seems he can't even face friendly celebrities who are trying to get him elected? steve: kelsey, it is brilliant strategy because joe biden is letting somebody else do the talking because as we know over the last year otwo joe has made a lot of gaffes. we all do the one a week or two about about 120 million people i doing of covid, those are embarrassing things that you don't want out there. being. >> we know democrats from the top have wanted to keep joe biden in his basement not facing the media. not even facing the friendly media and now not facing celebrities. might be a good campaign strategy to keep him in the basement i'm not sure what that says for the democratic nominee for president of the united states that he can't even have a conversation with celebrities

4:07 am
the fall. brian: including the one we are. in mark meredith joins us from the house with a back-to-school battle plan. mark? >> brian, good morning to you. plenty of kids may not be ready to go back but i'm sure plenty of parents really are the question though that not only the president but the whole country faces with the virus still lingering on whether or not it will be safe for schools to reopen a little bit later on. later today the president and the first lady, they are going to be hosting a dialogue on safely reopening america's schools. the white house has not yet said exactly hot president will be hearing from. but the president has sure made it clear what he wants to see happen as he tweet this weekend in all caps, quote. schools must open in the fall. at least 39 states have started to release some form of guidance for reopening. we heard from new york governor andrew cuomo on monday. >> want kids back in school for a number of reasons. but, we're not going to say children should go back to school until we know it's safe. in the meantime, i'm telling all school districts to come up with
4:08 am
a reopening plan. >> the white house says, of course, it's concerned with the health aspect of all of this. they are also concerned about the social and mental health of kids if they don't go back to school. steve, ainsley and brian, get a much better idea where we stand when we hear from the president and first later on today. back to you guys. steve: we will indeed. mark meredith from the white house. thank you very much. the state of florida is going to reopen their schools in august. i'm sure a lot of people are happy about that. but you hear in the news all these stories about how the coronavirus cases are spiking down in florida. but when you look at the incidence of hospitalizations, and also deaths, that's a different story. ron desantis said yesterday. he also said that the number of people in the hospital with covid is deceptive because apparently a lot of people are going in for a broken leg or they are going in to deliver a baby, and they are tested for
4:09 am
covid and they go oh, have you got covid, we have got to put new isolation. and so they wind up really putting the strain on the healthcare system even though they are asymptomatic. they don't have any symptoms but because they tested positively, they have got it keep them in the hospital. so that's why the numbers are going up there, he said he is asking the feds for help. nonetheless, he says you have got to have society function going forward. we can't shut everything down. he said that in america's friendliest hometown of the villages yesterday. >> we have to have society function. you can have society function in a way that keeps people safe. here's the thing you see where the virus is spreading and the age groups it is spreading. in we need to protect the vulnerable and folks in the at risk age groups. people with co-morbidities, but the broader part of society, you know, doing the moderate social
4:10 am
distancing doing the basic things will go a long way. we need to keep people working. keep society functioning. and combat it that way. seems like a reasonable approach. miami hot bed down in florida. they decided to close the gyms and restaurants again can you go and pick up takeout you can't go sit in the restaurant because the numbers are starting to group. not a blanket statement. people moving out and moving to florida tax reasons the leaders there are a little bit more reasonable there. steve: don't forget the weather. ainsley: that's true. we have someone in my daughter's class already moved. my best friend here in the city moving to connecticut. she just bought a house and enrolled her son in school there i have another friend in our school that moved counsel to florida.
4:11 am
they enrolled their kids down in palm beach. another friend moving to the other coast of florida down in the naples area. steve: are we the only three left in new york. ainsley: i know. it's happening. whether a are the stats on that? how many people? steve: it is substantial. real estate aggregators people are looking at properties out of big places that have been hot beds. ainsley, you were about to cue up dr. siegel. >> dr. siegel was on our show earlier and he said governor desantis is taking the right approach. listen to this. >> if he doesn't take that approach and ends up rolling everything back. the collateral damage is enormous. we are seeing a lot of younger people congregating together at beaches and bars. what is governor desantis and governor abbott doing? they close the bars and limit indoor dining. talking about protecting people in nursing homes. which is governor desantis has been thinking about protecting people with pre-existing conditions. we need to protect those people. the spread among the young is not what is leading to the deaths or hospitalizations.
4:12 am
>> that is what you should be trying to do. trying to open up schools, not sitting back and saying well, we will see what happens. and that's why people need to be proactive in taking responsibility for what they are doing in particular looking at the anybody's going up and getting alarmed by it. the hoover institute says i think we are looking at the wrong number. watch. >> what we are doing wrong is we have the wrong people in charge of our states. because they don't seem to understand it's not the superficial analysis that counts. and we need to communicate to people what the facts are. it's not a time to panic. it's not a high risk disease for people under 70. it certainly is not a high risk disease for people under 30 or 40 who almost all recover. so we have to look at that and what correlates to the new cases if it's from social mingling is the large protests that were in these large cities. somehow that goes unspoken.
4:13 am
it's not the guy getting his hair cut in the barbershop that created all these thousands of cases. that's ridiculous. brian: what drives people nuts is when you tell us the protests weren't a problem. when you tell us you can't get a hair cut or massage at the same time you say i understand why people have to protest and destroy property, that makes no sense. people don't accept it. also, when you look at a situation in new york where things are reopening now. and the numbers are going down. do you know in suffolk county people around the country think about the hamptons and other places that are middle to lower income zero deaths. in analysis saw county, single digits, everything is opening up. there is indoor dining. there might be something to this get this blowing through. maybe there is something going on in europe. >> the numbers are going down right now. they start spiking is it because they are lack of discipline or
4:14 am
does the virus have a say in this? brian: because, brian, i think it's because the media are reporting the number of cases. it's not the number of deaths or hospitalizations there is editorial in the "new york post." the daily number of deaths have actually been declining for the last two months. in april, the 21st day. average death 2225 deaths. 500, which is terrible. about this time of year, 1400 people die in nursing homes every day. according to the post and it says hospitalizations are cause for concern in only a couple of states but other than icus in arizona and small parts of texas, the hospital situation is nowhere near a crisis. there is nowhere where a person cannot get a hop bed the "new york post" is reporting on their op-ed page.
4:15 am
>> they are worried about tampa, florida. steve: where people have been denied beds? brian: no, getting close to capacity in tampa, florida. but thflorida. steve: but the point is nobody has been denied a bed so far not to that point. some of the numbers. brian: we have to shift should e a ship should that happen. steve: we have two of them. carley joins us from the mezzanine level. carley: today the ohio police officer shot and killed in a home depot parking lot will be laid to rest. a private memorial will be held this morning for 26-year-old anthony dia. the community is being asked to line the streets for a procession after the service. dia was killed responding to a call of an intoxicated man on saturday. he leaves behind a wife and two children. ghislaine maxwell epstein's former girlfriend and associate is federal prison set to be

are indoor dining. give us a status report of how it is working for you. we never closed. i kept all my chefs and cooks on payroll. they allowed us to open outdoor dining with simple permits. they waived all the fees and we built a beautiful patio outside to seat about 40 people. my restaurant holds 200 three weeks later we were able to open 50%. tables 6 feet apart. wearing a mask with sanitizing and a great response from our patrons. steve: sure. the key is as everybody says, you wear a mask, we can reopen. personal safety. the science has shown it slows the spread as we know. but even though i know this is great news for you that you are open at 50% you are still losing
4:24 am
money. >> absolutely. we are here 65 years. we do high volume. we seat 200 people. we have parties. we have events going on. and we do need 100 percent. but we are open 50%. so it's at least paying the bills. we did get some loans that is helping us out. so, hopefully, the 50% will go to 100 percent shortly. steve: just down the road from where you are is where i'm sitting and new york city will not allow indoor dining. what's your message to the mayor of new york city about how i is, you know, what he has decided here? >> well, the mayor opened up his eyes have to see what is going on. restaurants, we are going by the rules, wearing masks, we are sanitizing. he has to let us open our doors. if someone is breaking those rules and bar that's overcrowded, restaurants that aren't going -- not sanitizes and wearing the mask. then you have the right to go
4:25 am
and shut them down if the numbers are going up and people are signature sick and dying. steve: frank, i have heard the governor and the mayor of new york suggest that, you know, they are slow on reopening things because of mistakes being made in other states. here in the same state, you look at borelli's out there on long island, you guys are having a good outcome. absolutely. patio. last 30 in the front row 30 in the back. we were able to get 80, 90 people at one seating. we are putting a limit to the people sitting like an hour and 15 minutes. and everyone a wait. if not can you sit there as long as you like. when you leave the table put your mask on to use the bathroom or go pay your check. it's been working out great. steve: it's working out at borelli's in long island. check it out.

4:42 am
blasio. i heard mayor lightfoot in chicago also trying to pin this on donald trump somehow. how this was donald trump. again, it was racist, of course, everything is racist. god forbid you call out the fact that young black children are being shot in the head, you call that out. amazingly you are the racist. let me say something here. last night i was going on sean hannity's show. doing homework and going through social media. i'm trying to get the body count for new york this weekend. this is not hyperbole. i'm not exaggerating because i want to be precise. right as i am about to go on the air daily caller another 14-year-old was shot. this is insane, that's not a rounding error. 44 people were shot. it's actually 45. that's not a rounding error. that's a human being who was killed and that's how we have to talk about on television now what's going on in the cities run by these two epic failures of mayors, mayor lightfoot and mayor de blasio that if you go

on and check your twitter feet feed before you come on there may be someone else dead you may have missed. these aren't rounding errors. these are people. brian: recognize what's happening with these mayors though. this mayor knows epic failure. can't crack down on the violence. maybe he thinks his constituencies. and then you have this other mayor who has violence out of control in defense of light foot, rahm emanuel left her an absolute inferno, a mess. a murder capital. and instead of dealing with the issue at hand, they say president trump is the problem. he is going after females in liberal cities. atlanta and chicago. and he is going after de blasio and he writes black lives matter in front of trump tower so that's becomes the story. they actually think this distraction is going to be effective. >> so did continue constituency he thought that too until mayor

4:45 am
i'm not going to stereotype every liberal. i'm just saying. some of you are sick of this, too, and i don't blame you. it's not president trump that did this. it's that guy in city hall, bill de blasio, your communist mayor who has failed you and as i said on this program and others, repeatedly for years now, people will die because of the arguments going on over public safety and tragically i was correct. steve: search for numbers during the commercial. we actually got the number for you right now. take a look at this. the surge in shootings in just the month of june, june 2019 it was 89. now we're at 205 for the month of june. that's 130% increase,darng. when you look at the way the yow

5:01 am
atlanta tested positive for the coronavirus. steve: meanwhile 8:00 in new york city and we have a fox news alert. a state of emergency has been declared in georgia after a surge of violence in atlanta. the republican governor there, brian kemp called in the national security to keep the peace in the capitol city, ainsley. ainsley: yeah because at least 30 people shot over the holiday weekend there, five people were killed including that eight- year-old little girl we told you about yesterday. governor kemp slamming the violence in the city. brian: so the governor is saying in a quote here we go, people protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous destructive agenda. we see that in new york. now innocent are being targeted and shot and kill and left for dead. let's bring in georgia congressman doug collins member of the house judiciary committee and u.s. senate candidate. congressman i imagine you support this. it's kind of a relief to see a democratic mayor, republican governor, seemingly on the same page. do you think this will work?
5:02 am
>> i think it will, brian. i'm glad to see that the governor has brought out the national security. its been something we need to see done. we need to give support to our local police down there and i think the governor has done the right thing here. i applaud his actions and i'd hope also if we look at this he would continue enjoying what i've called one of the reasons that started this was the va in fulton county actually charging officers before the investigations were finished which caused the atlanta police department to not believe anybody has their back. they've had to disengage so hopefully i hope the governor will call on him to step aside to get an independent prosecutor there because what we need is the atlanta police department to be able to do their job and clean out these areas without having to fear the not have someone not having their back from higher up. so i'm glad to see this is happening. steve: and in fact you've been calling for that investigation for a number of weeks. it will be interesting but at the same time, congressman, you know that wendy's which is the location where rayshard
5:03 am
brooks was killed in the police- involved shooting a couple weeks ago that has become essentially the center of the protests in atlanta and for the longest time the police were told to back off and the mayor allowed the protesters to take over the burned out wendy's location and they have been putting up the temporary blocks and that is the reason that little eight-year-old girl sekoria turner and her family turned it into a parking lot up against the barricade where people were walking around with long guns and people opened fire on that car. where was the rule of law for that family just a couple of days ago? >> well that's the great question here. look anywhere where you allow lawlessness to exist in a city whether it be in seattle, or in this area, when the police are told to disengage and the mayors office seemingly was letting it happen what we've got to understand is lawlessness and
5:04 am
rule of law will not allow to fester and not be contained is going to cause more and more problems and unfortunately what we've seen and we saw in seattle now we've seen in atlanta, why does it take a death in these communities of someone being shot to know that when you have lawlessness areas and you just assume that everything is going to be okay, it just is sad because these minority community , communities are your hardest hit right now are the ones that blow the brunt of this. why are we doing this? we immediate to stop it now and that's why the governor brought in the national security. we've not only seen it in this area, and the georgia patrol headquarters and all over this is the thing that has to happen because it shouldn't take a tragic death for somebody to say wow we need to enforce the law. ainsley: so many are saying we need to defund police departments. i know you have said no. no to defunding, we need to defend. you have that 11-year-old little boy that was shot and killed in d.c. and his grandfather said we need police. crime is going to get worse, you start having less police officer s, who is going to come when there is a need for police
5:05 am
services? your own father was a police officer. tell us about him and why our law enforcement teams are so important. >> well the law teams are there to protect not only lives and property, they're there to encourage our communities to have the civil discourse, to have the community bonding that we know that we can go out and be safe. we know we can go anywhere in our cities and know the rule of law is being enforced and when you talk about defunding the police or cutting back on the police, simply what you're telling those police officers who put their lives on the line every day for us is we don't value so any of these departments any of the city councils, anybody will say we'll take money, we don't value. you can always give money to mental health and we need those places and addiction centers. we need those places but you can not go away from our police officers because by saying you want to defund them no matter what you're reasoning is you're telling them they don't matter. brian: congressman the mayor, k eisha lance bottoms was on cnn yesterday and said it's a perfect storm pointing to president trump saying his lack of leadership is stirring emotions playing out as violence in our streets. comes back to president trump?
5:06 am
>> no it's coming back to mayor bottoms when she was not forceful in saying let's make sure there is no zone for the rule of law is not enforced we're encouraging and making sure that the atlanta police department felt like they didn't have her support. it's not simply giving them raises. not simply saying you support them. it's actually being there when they need it and that's when they need to do their job and knowing that if they do their job they are going to get justice just like everyone else demands for the other if they are enforcing it. brian: are the atlanta cops standing down right now? >> i think they are doing their job as best they can but they are very discouraged by what is happening here because of the mixed signals being brought from not only the administration but also again it goes back to the fact that when they do their job, if they cannot get a proper investigation, but get charged with felony murder this is a problem and that's why i'm calling governor in other states they've got to get this where the officers get this d. a. out of the way and a proper investigation so the atlanta police department, we've had over 50 o officers who are
5:07 am
applying outside of fulton county because they don't trust being a cop in fulton county. steve: that's going the wrong way. a moment ago i saw on our air, a very young doug collins with his father. can you tell us a little bit about your dad the state trooper >> my dad was a state trooper for 30 something years starred in the early 60s went through the 90s he saw a lot of things and the civil rights unrest, been a part of going to have to go to civil unrest for his career. dad was always one who went out there and tried to treat people with respect. he was firm, and knowing that growing up in the household, but also i watched the other side and what i'd love for all the folks to know is officers come home, they cry when they about things they've seen on-the-job. i remember when my dad would come home and be really quiet i knew something happened at work and also i knew when an officer did something wrong you could tell because dad was furious because he knew people would judge him by what others did as well and so officers have a whole package and their families need to be lifted up in prayer
5:08 am
as well. ainsley: i know you're proud of him and he's proud of you. he was in law enforcement. you were a pastor and now you're a congressman. all three very -- steve: maybe a senator. >> that's what we're working on ainsley: thank you so much for being with us. >> great to be with you, you all take care. ainsley: today the president and first lady participate in a national discussion unsafely reopening our schools this fall. brian: but not all states are ready to take the plunge. steve: mark meredith joins us now live near the white house with the back-to-school battle and it is a battle isn't it, mark? >> you're right about that one. steve it's the middle of summer but so many people are already looking ahead to fall to try to figure out what the school year is going to look like. the president also weighing in on this. the president putting out a tweet feeling exactly what he thinks should happen, even though the coronavirus pandemic lingers on. the president tweeting schools must open in the fall. now later today the president and the first lady, they are going to be participating in a dialogue unsafely reopening america's schools. the white house has not yet said exactly who the president will
5:09 am
be listening to but at least 39 states they've already come up with their plan about what the school year may or may not look like and medical experts say so many school districts should be able to keep their students an staff safe. >> the risk to teachers is so much lower than it is to doctors this is a service service profession. most of them if they were asked would say i want to teach. it's so limited online teaching, there's so much loss especially among our young teachers can be protected and they want to teach we must reopen schools. >> the president suggested on monday that it's possible that some school districts could be kept closed because of politics but he didn't say which states he was talking about. the white house says of course is concerned about the health with the coronavirus but they are also concerned that kids can lose out on social issues as well as mental health issues if they don't have a chance to go back-to-school. plenty of debates coming up later here at the white house. steve, ainsley brian?
5:10 am
ainsley: thank you so much mark. down in florida they are saying we're going to reopen the schools, in new york the governor wants to but he hasn't made a decision so the parents here are waiting to find out what he's going to decide. scott atlas is with the hoover institution, and he was on earlier on fox and he just said you know what? this is not a time to panic. the kids will be okay if they do get it listen to this. >> what we're doing wrong is we have the wrong people in charge of our state, because they don't seem to understand it's not the superficial analysis that comes and we need to communicate to people what the facts are. it's not a time to panic. it's not a high risk disease for people under 70. it's certainly not a high risk disease for people under 30 or 40 who almost all recover. so we have to look at that and what correlates to the new cases , if it's from social mingling, is the large protests that were in these large cities. some of that goes unspoken. it's not the guy getting his hair cut in the barber shop that created all of these thousands
5:11 am
of cases. that's ridiculous. brian: so question and i think that makes a lot of sense. look at the survival rates look at the death rates. sometimes they say it's a lagging indicator but we'll see if it is a lagging indicator because right now the cases are going up. i don't think people can quite figure it out even in europe the cases are going down, but they can't quite figure it out and in israel, it's going up and then we know it was in beijing started coming up out of nowhere two weeks ago. so the virus has a vote in this and we still haven't figured out exactly everything there is to know about it. steve: right and you know the big headline every day is the spike in states that for the most part were not hit by the first wave when we were here in new york and new jersey and connecticut and things like that and when you look at the total number of cases, it is a jaw dropping number. and the number of deaths at approaching 150,000. there's an item in the new york post today that talks about one of the lead researchers at johns
5:12 am
hopkins says that we will be wearing masks perhaps for years because right now, the science shows that that is the best way to slow down the spread and the delivery date for the vaccination, who knows when that's going to be. brian: for years. it's still out in the fall. steve: the big question is how effective is it? because there are some questions about that. chuck grassley, the senior senator from the great state of iowa announced yesterday he will not be going to the rnc after having gone for 40 years because of the coronavirus worries and it is a real worry to people who are over 65. ainsley: absolutely, yeah. i think the number of total deaths, 130,000 in the united states, almost 3 million total cases here. the point is you got to stay safe, use your sanitizer, wear your masks and just social distance. some of these schools that are reopening are talking about different plans parents aren't
5:13 am
allowed inside of the classroom and aren't allowed in the front door, drop your children off with the teacher out on the sidewalk, teachers take them in, kids are six feet apart, they're continuously washing their hands everything is washed down at the end of class for the next class to come in there are ways to do this safely and hopefully we can do that because all the parents i've talked to the zooming thing is really difficult. really difficult to do every single day. so we'll see. brian: meanwhile, they're keeping carlie shimkus away from us for sanitary reasons. she's upstairs. reporter: thank you, brian we'll begin your headlines with this very important update. three children are killed after two planes collide over an idaho lake. there are at least eight other victims police say they have recovered three bodies and are working to recover two others from the wreckage. police now identifying some of those victims including a father from oregon, his son, and his two-step-children. still no word on what caused that crash.

5:24 am
unemployment benefits. he also said that some employees , two in particular, are trying to get unemployment benefits while still on the payroll while still working at the store, so he says he's still struggling to find workers and this comes at a time when we know a lot of americans are staying home either because of health concerns, care taking, or because they're making more money with the benefits from both the federal level at $600 a week, and at the state level where the minimum here is $172 in new york. economists at the university of chicago say that roughly 70% of eligible workers are making more money so that's a combined income from all of the benefits post-pandemic than they were previously which could be part of the reason that's why many are not choosing to go back to work. here at this store we reached out to the new york state to find out if they've heard anything about this and they said "unemployment benefits are a lifeline for new yorkers who lose their jobs and it is unacceptable that dishonest individuals would seek to defraud the system for their own

5:32 am
us, the surviving family. it still effects us by this tragic loss. brian: what do you think about, genesis, when you see how cops are being treated right now in the streets across this country? >> it's truly disheartening. having a mother as a police officer, i just want americans to remember that police officers have families too and they have children abdomen loved ones that need them to come home unharmed and i just want everyone to know that police officers are humans too. they have fears, they have people that they love, and they bleed just like the rest of us and people like my mom, who was the most amazing person in my

life, you know, deserves to not be just because of what it was. brian: absolutely and i know it turns out and you know this number, 23 officers, phone in july have already been killed in the line of duty. frank siller, frank it's like yesterday obviously, for genesis, and for you and your brother, when your brother, you don't really get over it you learn to deal with it but you're in action again, because a 26-year-old was gunned down when this 26-year-old, anthony dia, he was told to go to a call there was an intoxicated man in the store's parking lot and when he approached that man the guy turned around and shot him dead. now he's 26 and he leaves two children and a wife behind. two sons. >> no, brian, it's very sad that this is happening, but there's 116 police officers that died in the line of duty either

5:42 am
network fox business is live outside nats park in d.c. where practice has been put on pause. hillary? reporter: good morning, steve, ainsley, and brian that's right. some of maiming or league baseball's biggest players are stuck in the dug out after several had to cancel their practice because they did not get their covid-19 test results back in time. the houston astros, st. louis cardinals and the washington nationals all had to postpone their workouts yesterday. the nats general manager mike r izzo telling the mlb, without accurate and timely testing it's not safe for us to continue with summer camp, major league baseball needs to work quickly to resolve issues with their process and lab, otherwise summer camp and the 2020 season are at risk. opening day is a little over two weeks away but the nats are headed into the shortened season with a shrinking roster. two players tested positive for covid-19 but both had not returned to home base yet. three nats players are also opt

ing out of the seasonal together, over safety concerns, ryan zimmerman, joe ross and mlb admits there were delays in getting results to the teams because of the 4th of july weekend and by sunday night they completed 98% of tests but by monday morning 86 were still pending. the washington nationals are the reigning world series champs and the mlb is hosting the yankees at nationals park on opening day but fans who want to root them on will not be let in. steve, ainsley and brian? brian: hopefully that'll change gradually as the season takes place. thank, hillary. all right let's bring in charles payne, he's the same guy who hosts "making money" at 2:00 on fox business. charles what struck us yesterday was nasdac 24th record. why is that? why was it up on monday, the market, and why was nasdac hitting another high? charles: well, the market has actually done remarkably well. if you go back we had a big
5:44 am
sell-off on june 11. since then the s&p has been up 11 of the 16 sessions and nasdac has been up almost every single day to your point. the market has been telegraphing since the march 23 low that the stock market was oversold that had built in the most pessimistic views of where the u.s. economy is going to be so we've had this interesting position where the markets telegraphed one thing and more recently, the evidence has been coming in, pouring in. now we had a great jobs report on thursday, but a lot of folks didn't want to buy this market ahead of a three day weekend. light volume or whatever came in yesterday, started buying up the market and remember 4.8 million jobs in one month by far shattering all the records out there. as far as nasdac is concerned those are your biggest winners. those are the momentum names. let me give you an example brian this morning alone let me show you how far behind wall street has been on this rally on this economy. amazon got an upgrade this morning. new target 3,300 from a company firm called robert baird.
5:45 am
nvidia got an upgrade. apple got an up upgrade this morning from 400 prior target was 340. that's how far behind wall street has been so the stock market has been the real gauge of where we could be in the months from now, certainly by next year. and its been working. steve: sure and right now, at this point, at 8:45 eastern time the dow futures are down a couple hundred, but this is a time of year, charles when the stock market kind of goes up and down during the summer dol drums but the white house is banking on that v-shaped recovery. so the higher that number get , the closer to november 3rd i think the geniuses at the white house think that's better for us charles: there's going to be two october surprises. there will be the economy, and covid-19 deaths. i don't think it's going to be about the cases because if we have a lot more cases and mortality goes down that's actually going to be a positive
5:46 am
story. a lot of the third quarter the quarter we're in now, all of that data will pore in in october right before the election. everything from president trump will be riding on that number. that's why he's pushing hard for more stinks in this economy. that's why today this morning the government announced they are going to pour $2 billion in just two companies to help them speed up covid-19 vaccines and have doses prepared for americans, so they're pushing hard so those are your two areas that will decide this election. where we are with covid-19, i don't think it's going to be about cases i think it's about mortality and potentially where we are with a vaccine and more importantly as important perhaps, the economy. if we can see what we saw just in the last couple of months with jobs coming in significantly better than when any expert in the world thought it could be, this morning, i think it was one of these big international organizations said our unemployment rates going to be 11.5%. we're under that already for the year. so we keep this momentum going,
