how are you doing, will? super bowl weekend. will: right here. good morning to you both. that's right. i'm live here in tampa. super bowl lv. i know you are very excited about that jedediah. we will get your picks later. we know you will change the chiefs or the punxsutawney. for now a hometown battle in tampa. hometown bucs look to be pretty popular, pete. pete: what's the feel? you are there on the ground. it's a little bit different everything is a little bit different what's the vibe in tampa? will: it's excited because there is a hometown team for the first time playing in home stadium for the super bowl. it's tampered by the bittersweet relation what would it be like if it were a normal year. street packed and cash registers ringing they recognize it's a little down from expectations. pete: absolutely. jedediah: i know you are waiting for my pick. i'm waiting for yours, will cain. i had a conversation about it yesterday.
you know what? i'm going to wait and hold my pick and see who will picks and bet my money on that. so i'm counting on you, will. will: i will have your back. jedediah: ha ha ha. all right. so much for unity. president biden making a push for $2 trillion relief package without any republican support. lucas tomlinson is live in washington with more on the partisan plan. lucas? >> good morning, guys. more than 10 million americans are still out of work and experts say it could take years to recover. president biden spoke at the white house to outline his nearly $2 trillion plan to turn things around. >> i would like to be doing it with the support of republicans. i have met with republicans. there is some really fine people that want to get something done. but they are just not willing to go as far as as i think we have go. if i have to choose between getting help right now or compromising on a bill that's up to the crisis, that's an easy choice. i'm going to help the american people who are hurting now. >> the u.s. has recovered
roughly half of the 22 million jobs lost during the first two month of the pandemic. in an interview with cbs. president biden said the massive bill isn't likely to include a $15 federal minimum wage favored by many on the left. this comes as a new green jobs report says only 49,000 jobs were added last month. a year ago the unemployment rate was nearly half of what it is today. for context in january of last your, 225,000 jobs were added, of course, that's before the pandemic took hold here in the u.s. will, jed, pete? will: thanks so much, lucas. jed, take a look if you will at this "new york post" cover from this morning. it's entitled stim roller. $1.9 trillion thriewk the reconciliation process. if you remember before the election we talked about whether or not the democrats' biggest opponent was it republicans or process? what would they want to change? we talked about statehood for d.c. and puerto rico. talked about different ways they
could change the process. here we are reverting the process. it's reconciliation. you remember that from obamacare, the process they used to should've through obamacare so they could get past republican opposition. here we go again, it's stimulus through reconciliation $1.9 trillion and the real opponent turned out to be process which they will overcome. pete: they have gone through the motions inviting the 10 republican senators into the oval office. they knew they could only pass it with 51 votes unless they compromised which they didn't want to do. enough to we have a 2 trillion-dollar covid relief package which has $350 billion for blue state bailouts. 1 0 billion for schools. tons of increased unemployment. extending that for six more months. what is important to note and the "wall street journal" breaks it down very well, first of all, we have already spent 3.7 trillion in covid relief in 2020. so we are already at almost 4 trillion. this is 2 trillion more. 1 trillion of that previous relief, guys, still is unspent. they haven't spent it yet.
so have you 59 billion for schools. 239 billion for healthcare and almost 500 billion in small business loans yet to actually be spent. yet, the urgency is no we have to spend 2 trillion more, putting us at basically 6 trillion in relief. the one thing, jed, they refuse to do end the lockdowns that would allow people to get back to business which is what people really need. yesterday. jedediah: that's the point i was going to make can you do this over and over again and talk about increasing unemployment benefit and stimulus checks in the short-term yes, of course those things will help people. ultimately if these businesses have to remain shut down or in some case operate like restaurants at 25% capacity it's not going to be a month. a month is going to pass or a few weeks is going to pass and those businesses are going to need another influx of cash. the ultimate resolution to all of this which i see completely absent in all of this is to reopen the country and let those businesses protect their customers as they want to do and be safe and prove that they can
do that and they prioritize it but ultimately get people get back to business and that goes the same for school reopenings and whatnot. will, you talked about process and the idea of unity. and who prioritizes unity and whether or not those words are actually reflected in actions which we have been talking about for some time on this show. well, white house press secretary jen psaki was asked a little bit about joe biden and the promises he made when he ran and whether or not he is actually fulfilling those promises when it comes to unity. here what happens she had to say. >> well, first of all, the president ran on unifying the country and putting forward ideas that would help address the crises we're facing. he didn't run on a promise to unite the democratic and republican party into one party in washington. will: threw hear jen psaki talking about unity. you understand the president, president biden did run on unity. in fact, that was one of his big themes.
let's take a quick look back. this is not that long ago, actually, guys. this is october 6th of last fall. when then candidate biden talked very much about that word. unity. listen. >> i'm running as a proud democrat but i will govern as an american president. if i will work with democrats and republicans. i will work as hard for those who don't support me as those who do it. that's the job of a president. if the duty to care for everyone, refusal of democrats and republicans to cooperate with one another is not due to some mysterious force beyond our control. it's a decision. it's a choice we make. and if we can decide not to cooperate, we can decide to cooperate as well. that's the choice i will makes a president. it. pete: it's the choice he will makes a president. voters who voted for joe biden
can be forgiven for being -- feel like they were hood winked. you hear that language. he has a track record, had a track record in the senate at some point of working with people. but his white house is staffed full of obama folks and hard core partisans who ultimately feel like they tried for it too long under -- when they were trying to get obamacare passed working with republicans and ultimately didn't get any republican votes. so this whole bipartisan thing yeah, we will pretend a little bit and shuffle things around but ultimately we are going to ram it down because of what you said, will, we have got the process on our side right now. we have the votes to do it. we can keep our caucus locked together and ultimately republicans they wish they were us. and they wish they could push their priority, sorry this is hard ball d.c. politics and that's ultimately the way the white house sees all of this. senator rand paul was on our network last night talking about whether or not the white house cares about the other half of the country this is what he said. >> we will be two weeks into the administration.
the first thing they will do is extend the bitterness of the election with impeaching of former president. the second thing they are going to do is add $2 trillion worth of debt to our country with no republican support, zero. they come to the white house only to tell them no, we are doing this only bernie sanders way or the highway with only democrats. really, this is showing you how they want to run the country. they do not care what the other half of the country want. pete: such a great point on top of what the senator said. and oh, by the way. they are going to impeach a former president at the beginning of the administration and the white house is going to effectively take a hands off perspective and they hope that unity emerges from that. but, another topic we are tracing this morning is immigration. because if you go to our southern border, of the battle over what's happening there including covid-19 is raging as the biden administration has sent signals, very loud signals to migrants and others and illegals saying the catch and release program is back on. remain in mexico is gone.
and because of covid-19, effectively, we're going to have to be releasing people under this health crisis. jed, when you listen to the rhetoric and the signals, why would people not believe now is the time to come when they won't be deported, whether they don't have to remain in mexico, when bringing a child with you policy has expanded as a reason to get. in with covid-19 we are shipping vaccines to the southern border to give to illegals, sounds like a good typically to run for the border if you need to. jedediah: yeah, and on that point, white house press secretary jen psaki was asked directly about that. listen to what she had to say and we will talk about it. >> what could be done to provide covid testing to migrants at the border. >> are you suggesting they're letting people in across the border? >> because of 9 will executive order that the president signed earlier this week. >> which one? >> rescinding president trump's policy which stopped catch and release. they are saying they are having to provide -- they are having
release migrants into the community before they know for sure that they do not have covid. they are worried that it could spread in the communities. >> certainly the reach we have put in a number of protections in terms of travel and otherwise is to keep the american people safe. but, i haven't seen that report. i can't validate the accuracy of it but i would certainly point you to the department of homeland security for more specifics. will: might need more specifics as to whether it comes to whether or not. go ahead, jedediah. jedediah: yeah, i was going to say i don't know what that answer means. i don't really get it. what is being done to prevent the spread of covid-19 in these communities if more individuals are incentivized to come across and they are if catch and release is reinstated. what's the answer in i'm still waiting, will. ha. will: i don't know if you are getting one. billboard come on in at the southern border of the united states right now. it's a simple math equation. you can come in and get released immediately because of covid-19. we are not going to detain
people in facilities. you will get immediately catch and release. increase in illegal immigration. want to see the result the equal sign here it is. 253 illegal immigrants apprehended mission, texas within one hour that level of apprehensions. math is pretty easy to add up. they will have to find answers to that question you were asking that was asked of jen sacky, jedediah. the questions are mounting. >> the results are come in. pete: absolutely. later on in the program we will have mark morgan former cbp commissioner what is happening at the border because jen psaki will con descend and pretend she doesn't know but things are changing and we want to get the reality of what is happening on the ground and we will talk to mark morgan, don't miss it. jedediah: yep. several more guests coming up stick with us. turn to headlines. overnight victory for religious freedom. supreme court lifting bans on

coalition to safe portland. gabriel, thank you so much for being with us this morning and your service. >> thank you. pete: this unit has been disbanded. gun violence gone up. the number of the people in the police force has gone down. are you surprised by what is happening in the city of portland right now? >> no. no. i'm not surprised at all. and one of the things that portland is and has become for the country is an example of what defunding the police actually looks like. back in july we defunded the police $15 million and the gvrt was specialty units was disbanded. furthermore, one of the city commissioners that spearheaded that $15 million cut further went on to say that the gvrt disbandment of it had no contribution to the violence we are seeing right now. i think we can all see that it has had a dramatic effect on public safety and movability
here in portland. pete: talk about livability in portland. s to the will environment itself feel more secure without the gun violence reduction team? police lost the tools they need to keep citizens safe? >> yeah. we saw those tools being shipped away during the riots over the summer. and at this point we really don't have the numbers to bring back the gvrt. we're down 13% since july alone. 13% of a force that was already down about close to 50%. so, we have for a city this size just over 700 officers on our street. and we should have about 1100 officers. so, there's no way with the further defunding that's going on that we can bring back gvrt. pete: absolutely. when you don't have police, you can't enforce the law, which
makes law-abiding citizen that more vulnerable. and that's exactly what we are seeing in portland. it's unfortunate it's a preview for the rest of the nation. lance corporal gabrielle johnson thank you for your service and your time. we appreciate it. good luck. >> thank you. pete: up next, the decision to keep learning virtual and students out of the classroom is having a major impact on kids of all ages, common sense. we talked to a panel of students ranging from elementary school all the way to high school seniors about that coming up. at heinz, every ketchup starts with our same tomatoes. but not every tomato ends in the same kind of heinz ketchup. because you can't be everyone's favorite ketchup without making a ketchup for everyone.

you are high school seniors. how has it felt for you to spend this last year essentially at home and not get to join in on a lot of the typical activities that high schoolers would get to do at this time in their high school career? we will start with you, trey? >> it's been very different that would have been. obviously, i have been doing this for a while now. but, it feels like most of the time i'm alone in my room unless i go for launch and break for food and i'm back on the screen. and we're not even getting into how much work we get to. so it's been very lonely but i'm glad that i have got a brother with me that's going through the exact same thing as well as my family who are together. >> conor, what are some of the academic challenges that some in high school might face without having access to peers and to teachers close by and do everything essentially through a computer screen. >> one of the delays pretty regularly is whenever a teacher
asks a question or anything. there is always a 15 second delay whenever students -- before a student can answer a question. it's really difficult to really foster discussion in the classroom if you don't have that classroom setting and the atmosphere of learning that is crucial and in person learning. jedediah: i think you make an important point also, trey, that having each other was probably an integral part of getting through something like this. very challenging. we will will shift over to second grader and kindergartner. so excited to have you here. start with niffin. are you excited to get back to school and why? >> i'm ready to get back to school because i want to do more like i want to run in the basketball court. and do more hoops. so i can get more stronger.
[laughter] sounds amazing. you will get to see your friends, obviously. has it been hard for you to be at home doing your schooling at home? >> do a challenge and also i like to run interest [inaudible] big laps and then you get like awards. like a mini trophy thing. and the pe we usually like play a game that's called the floor is lava and they set up an obstacle course we do. jedediah: that sounds like something to look forward to. i want to go back to caleb and logan. what do you stay to people who say oh, you know what? it's the same doing it from home, caleb. it's the same. you don't need to be in school. what's your reaction to that? >> i really don't know to say when people say that because it's basically not fair. they don't know what it's like to be young and have to face a
computer. will [inaudible] will they have more -- we may not have that much space at day care but we don't have enough time to do stuff like that. jedediah: yeah. i want to close out with trey and conner. if you could just give your last message to anyone out there who doesn't get it. who just doesn't see the importance of kids of all ages as we have shown here of being in person in the classroom. what's your message to them? >> i think my message would be that you should always take care of your mental health and right now that's been the reason for a lot of students is that that part is getting affected more probably than the physical aspect of distance learning. jedediah: conner? >> distance learning is basically seven hours of staring at a computer with a break for
lunch. in person learning is so much better in terms of -- so much more efficient in the education system. jedediah: yeah. well, i want to thank you all. caleb, logan, conner, jay. and niffin for being here. we enjoyed it today. we hope you did too. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> bye, guys. still ahead, businesses should be seeing a big boom if they're hosting a super bowl. is the pandemic changing that in tampa? will cain hits the streets to find out that and more next. plus, super bowl lv is your chance to win $250,000 of terry bradshaw's money with the super 6 app. easy download the app. and pick 6 super bowl outcomes for your shot to win. easy to play. don't miss out and play now. ♪ ♪

year around. the majority of people are still eating outdoors in florida whereas in the northeast we have much more confined spaces and they have to be indoors because it's so cold. from a viral transmission standpoint it's very difficult for gatherings to occur in the northeast when it is so cold right now. i can tell you by looking at all these states it's mass chaos trying to get the vaccines out. the biggest strategy i'm seeing so far is hundreds, if not thousands of doses are being discarded because they don't have the people receive the vaccine. we have to continue to remove these restrictions on who can get the vaccine. at this point anyone who want the vaccine should have access to it. will: dr. saphier we just have a minute left here it. seems odd to me after months of declaring victory in his leadership over covid-19 in new york. andrew cuomo is asking for special treatment that he got hit the hardest and we need the rest of the nation to help us pick up the tab. i know it's a political question do you see it from the medical side that it's true these guys are carrying an extra burden so
they will need some extra help? >> well, you know, the state do need some sort of subsidizing from the federal government when it comes to a crisis such as we are in. but, as i said, if you go back a year ago, governor cuomo, governor murphy, they said they needed a lot more that was necessary. so a lot of funding was levied that wasn't necessary. they may need a little bit more because it was so hard hit and because they haven't been able to open up. but probably not to the size of which they are demanding. will: they are asking for tax deductions being rolled back. all kind of federal money going into those states. they are asking for a lot. dr. nicole is sapphire thank you for your time this morning. jedediah: thanks, nicole. >> thanks, guys. will: one restaurant giving out a special invitation to their super bowl party for game stop reddit investors. the motive behind their big game deal next ♪ this is the night ♪ this is the moment ♪ tonight is the night ♪ we will fight until it's over ♪ put our hands up like the ceiling can't hold us ♪ like the ceiling can't hold us

ing. will: long island sports bar is treating new york game stop reddit investors to a super bowl party. peter's clam bar will be offering a free bus to watch the big game indoors with free food and drinks to show support following the stock trading frenzy. joining us now is the owner of that clam bar butch. tell us about your idea. what made you decide to do this? >> good morning. between the game stop and the big game, everybody -- i lost my shirt out there. restaurant owners and people can't watch the game in this city but you can watch it on long island your favorite bar. i figured why not?
let's do something completely different. i set up a bus and i'm bringing people across the border rate to my restaurant and we are going to have a lot of if you please. that's it. will: butch, you know in the news for the last week or two we have been talking about game stop reddit investors. it becomes sort of an ambiguous term. how do we define that? who are these guys we keep talking about? i might have a brother that helps me understand exactly hot game stop reddit investor is? how did you find them? who are these guys? >> it's hard to figure out. they kind of came forward. these are more people -- i'm not a financial adviser. but these poor people lost their shirt. and i mean it's like a backwards on robinhood out there. take it from the small guy like me. the why that started out withing to and worked his way up the ladder. and i feel bad for people. and as coming forward we can't go watch our game. we are losing our shirt. our businesses are down. we have to do something to uplift them. i mean, other states are having a lot of fun. florida is like nothing ever happened and here in new york we are suffering. let's do something different.
so i set my bus up and we are going for it. will: you will have a super bowl party with clams i saw you say for people who lost their clams in the game stop -- really cool idea for someone who has suffered in the restaurant industry to reach out to other people who might have lost in the last couple weeks and try to support them what we are looking at here is a real spirit of america. this is people not just those who are well-off helping others but those who are suffered themselves helping others. really cool, butch. thank you for your idea and joining us this morning. >> thank you so much. have a good day. take care. will: i will be out coming to peter's clam bar zoom. >> want to see you. will: i will be there. the super bowl would be normally mean big business for cities like tampa. will this year's dialed back event change that? florida congressman byron donaldss is on deck. ♪

are going to be people here today. pete: i'm not leading you next hour. itch to share about the nfl experience. i recognize it because i recognize the helmets behind you in your shot. but i have to mention today it's national chopsticks day. national frozen yogurt day. national lame duck day but more importantly it's national ice cream for breakfast day. and dip and dots was nice enough. i don't know, will if you have any or not. the teleprompter says you do, yes. dip and dots has a fruity cereal. froot loops cereal flavor ice cream which means it is made for national ice cream for breakfast day. will, i tried a bite and jed, before we went offer air it tastes exactly like froot loops,. jedediah: jed they need to do -- if that's the case i need to wait for cocoa krispies so many cereals rice crispy treats. they could roll out a whole cereal line people would love that. let me ask you, pete is it
materially for ice cream or never too early. pete: never too early national ice cream for breakfast day. jedediah: i love it. pete: let kid choose whatever they want they choose ice cream for breakfast. doesn't it have the chalky taste of fruit loops amazing. will: milk after taste dairy. tastes like cold fruit loops that's what it is. pete: unreal. jedediah: almost like the milk built in i love it. pete: good on you dippin' dots. jedediah: my mom's favorite. we used to go to the sphild mall she used to love those. you are in good hands. get to school reopenings. obviously a topic that's been talked about quite a bit the last few weeks. we have had kids on the show today talking about how important it is for them to be getting back in the classroom back to school. the unfortunate reality though is that we haven't had a lot of consistent answers from this administration on what's going to happen. there has been a lot of contradictions as we have seen unfold this past week between what the administration seems to
be saying. what the cdc is saying. who is right. when is it going to happen? a lot of confusing mixed messaging. take a listen to white house press secretary jen psaki when she was pressed for answers on school reopenings and then we will chat a bit more about it. here is jen. >> will president biden use the power of the bully pulpit to help congeal teachers who are unwilling to go back to schools. >> one, i'm going to reject the premise of the question. we're going to rely on cdc guidance, which again, is not officially out yet to determine the best way to do it. but there are several mitigating factors that we have seen in date up to date that will help make it. >> sounded like a yes for expert fncht you are spokesperson for the white house you can certainly say that but you are not. >> here's a question that doesn't have an answer or at least not an obvious answer. why would the biden administration resist reopening schools? why would they resist using the bully pulpit to push teacher's unions to reopen schools. why would they resist the
recommendations of the cdc? local mayors, even democrats like lori lightfoot? why would the biden administration resist pushing to reopen schools? here might be the answer. this is contributions from teacher's unions to politicians including president joe biden. $232,000 to biden's 50,000. 51,000 just about to bernie sanders. gary peters 37,000. jamie harrison 36,000. elizabeth warren 34,000. however, pete and jed, when you add up dollars sometimes. especially in a presidential election. when you see hundreds of millions of dollars spent, you start to wonder how much does $200,000 impact an election? let me show you something that does impact an election. union membership from teacher's unions national education association over 3 million members. the american federation of teachers 1.7 million members. and local, new york state united teachers 600,000 members. tell me those numbers don't swing an election and have a
price to pay on the back end. pete: of course they do. and teachers unions are the foundation stone of the democrat party base. go to any state and the state teachers union is probably the most powerful lobby in that state. they give exclusively to democrats and expect a pay back in return. in the case of joe biden, as you pointed out, will, he gets 4 to 5 times more donations from national teachers unions than anyone else. you might say he is in bed with the teacher's unions except he actually is in bed in the teacher's union is that dr. jill biden is a member of a teacher's union. so at every turn he is going to favor the base of his own party and that's why, jed, you talked about it the cdc, the cdc director came out on wednesday and said i think schools could be opened safely. has doubled down on that. so this is a white house that said we are going to follow the science always. yet, their own cdc director is starting to say well we could open it up if we want to. here is a flashback of joe biden
and other democrats saying we will always follow the science. >> these steps are asking people to take are political statements. every one of them is based on science, real science. first and foremost, is we're going to follow, again, the science. and we will follow the guidance of science. it's based on science, not politics. it's based on truth, not denial. >> making a commitment to base solutions on the best available science. >> and that's one of the things the president is restoring today in the executive order is respect for science and the science. >> we restored our commitment to science and to create policies grounded in facts and evidence. jedediah: yeah, so that all sounds great and that's all campaign talk, whatever. the bottom line is if you follow the science the schools would be reopen. in fact, they would have been reopened several month ago at this point because we had the information that these were not super spreader event being at a school and if you took the proper precautions which teachers and administrators are
happy to take that you would be able to prevent the spread of covid-19 in schools. not entirely, of course, but in large sum. general psaki should be asked what science are you following? she is in the unfortunate position that she has to answer for president biden. of course, you want that answer to come from president biden himself. that's not the way politics works. she needs to be pushed. what is the science? is there data that is causing this delay? if so, what is it? people need to see it because parents are struggling. kids are struggling. if there is some justification for this madness provide it. now, of course there is none. that's why that's not being done. regardless she should be pressed on that consistently until every single school is open. will: you know, makes me wonder, jedediah, when there will be a price to pay for this madness. we talk about the price being paid back to unions from democratic politicians. when will there be a price to pay for this madness? one of the reasons "fox & friends" gets out of literally a physical bubble in new york city to places like tampa to go to diners, the reason we do that is
to get out of that political bubble. let me tell you why the rest of the media wants to talk about fringe conspiracy theories or people that hold podiums in washington, d.c. i just wonder people across this country dealing with real life issues like their children not being back in school. when that price will come due. when they will hold those accountable who are sending their kids home uneducated. by the way south carolina senator tim scott is wondering when that hypocrisy, that same thing when that hypocrisy will pay a price. listen to this. >> the hypocrisy of the left, they say they want to follow the science. the cdc says open the schools. the biden administration says we will wait and follow something else. and in december we approved $82 billion, billion dollars to reopen schools they still won't do it. i'm stunned, truly stunned. the most important issue for us as a nation to close that chasm, the gap between the have and have notes. it's not focusing on race. it's not focusing on money.
it's focusing on education. we tell american students to stay home. whether we tell single mothers that they must be home coolers and go to work but not take their kids, we are sending very garland mixed mess sandals that are hard to follow. >> i mean it's disgraceful what's going on. i mean, what's going on to pay homage to unions. thieves kids are really suffering. and it's not just academics that are suffering. they are suffering, their mental health is suffering. loot of kids just have different learning styles. they can't sit at home and go on a computer and learn that way. they need the context of a classroom. they need a teacher's presence. they need their it fellow classmates. that's a eating for many, many students out there. they are excited to go back to school. they want to get back to school. in fact i spoke to a student panel earlier. student of all different fradges kindergarten through high school seniors, take a listen to what some of what they had to say. >> they don't know what it's like to be young and have to face a computer and not be able to play with your friends.
>> i want to run in the basketball court. and shoot more hoops so i can get more stronger. >> feels like most of the time i'm alone in my room. you should always take care of your mental health. that part is getting affected more probably than the physical aspect of distance learning. >> distance learning is basically seven hours of staring at a computer with a break for lunch. pete: yep. and the reason that happens is because teacher's unions care more about teachers and their paychecks more than they care about the actual education in the classroom. and, will, you asked the question when does -- when are there ultimately consequences for any of this? when will the union pay a price for this kind of on citizen next. i was out there doing you documentary we are doing about the history, unauthorized history of. ed: occasion in america. to a man and woman not just republicans and democrats there is utter frustration with gavin newsom, with the lockdowns with
the hypocrisy, with the cities there that are falling apart and failing. so you might actually see in the recall effort there an opportunity to say we want to a mulligan on this guy because what he sold us is not what's being delivered in my life. in my community, in my classroom. on my unpoliced street. and kevin will fauconer california gubernatorial candidate was on fox recently talking about that recall effort. here is what he said. >> i think he is going to be recalled. i am going to run. so much momentum right now in california because people want a change. we are talking about a california comeback. and our california kids are falling behind. i launched my campaign this week out in front of a public school that is closed but, yet, right across the corner where i was was a private school that was open. this is just absolutely unacceptable and everyone in california democrats, independents, republicans, they all agree we need to open our schools now. not next week, not next month,
now. the issue of protecting our california jobs, keeping them here, keeping them growing in california, i'm going to be the governor that does just that. jedediah: what's happened in california is deeply saddening not only with schools but businesses and taxes. it's horrible. it's my favorite state. my heart breaks for california. i hope that people realize that yes, they may want to change but do they realize that in order to get that change they need to vote for different politicians if they continue to vote for the same types of politicians with the same types of platforms, that hole is just going to get dug deeper and deeper and deeper. i'm hoping there is some change of heart and awareness because it's a beautiful state and deserves better. will: even if there is a recall effort of gavin newsom let's hope it's not too little, too late when documents to our children. we will turn now to a few additional headlines for you. two g.o.p. representatives are fined $5,000 for bypassing metal detectors as they entered the house floor. congressman louie gohmert and andrew clyde were the first

the department of homeland security about more specifics about what's happening at the border. pete: circle back. the white house deflecting on concerns border patrol president biden's catch and release. this as the president calls calls to welcome as many as 125,000 refugee as year. i have got it figured out a year. finally. former acting cbp commissioner mark morgan has warned against these policies he joins us now. mark, thanks for being here. when you hear these types of answers from jen psaki and you see that their plans effectively are sending a signal of open borders, what's your reaction? >> you know, i'm very frustrated because they are clearly misleading the american people to really drive a political agenda that is putting america second. look, it's clear. this shouldn't shock anybody that if you send a signals out that our borders are open and if you remove essential tools and policies that clearly have been effective, are the results going to be? an increase in illegal immigration, shocker, right? right now we're looking at 3500
a day trying to illegally enter the united states. under anybody's definition, that is a -- those are crisis level numbers. and the white house response's eh, we are forced into. this pete, no they weren't. that's a lie. they caused this. and if they would have listened to the experts and the science behind data security, border security, in fact, they would not be doing. this that is the truth. pete: there are pushes now for advocates pushing for illegal immigrants to be eligible for covid vaccines. talk to me about the covid angle? is that causing border patrol to release people proactively because they can't hold them? how is this new administration viewing covid and the border? >> no, that's absolutely -- again, another false narrative out there. title 4 is the last policy that still remains. that's the cdc orders that allows border patrol to remove people at the border upon apprehension because of covid-19. and it's been an effective containment mitigation strategy.
so, that's just absolutely false. that's the only thing that is keeping the 3500 a day from being a full blown catastrophic crisis. and california right now, like you said, they are wanting to give their legal immigrants vaccines. not from a law enforcement perspective just from an american citizen when are we going to stop with incentives. give somebody in mexico waiting for a vaccine maybe like you and me illegally enter and i will get in line in front of everybody, including every american citizen while businesses are still not open, schools are still not open. it's absolutely ridiculous. pete: real quick, mark, texas has sent 10,000 covid-19 to mcallen. what does that tell you about what's happening on the border trmplets it tells me that the state is stepping up because the ineffective policies under the biden administration that's encouraging illegal immigration. and that's absolutely leading to catch and release. they feel they have gotten no other alternative than to step up to protect their own citizens in their state.

jedediah: do you think it was effective in actually changing policy seeing something like that? >> well, it's hard to say if it's a coincidence or not. but within 24 hours, our superintendent was adamant that he wanted kids back in school. and within 48 hours we actually had an email from the district stating we will be in person on march 15th. jedediah: wow. so, maybe in that effect maybe it didn't. it's certainly quite a billboard. you know, it's been challenging in tempe. it's gone from virtual to hybrid and then there was a covid outbreak and then back to virtual. there is a statement from tempe union high school from the district. we want to read it and get your response to it. it says bringing students back is what we have been working on and planning for throughout the pandemic. we certainly value input from our families, parent and other stakeholders, ultimately this billboard seems to seek to be a divisive distraction. we remain 100 percent focused on getting our students back to school safely. what are your thoughts on that statement as a parent? >> well, our neighboring districts in chandler, gilbert
mesa have all been in school the majority the school year. they have seemed to find a way to navigate it and give parents the option of being online or in person. that's all we are really looking for. i think we deserve the same option in our community as our neighboring community. jedediah: your son is a sophomore. how has he done with the remote learning? >> there have been some challenges for sure. i know i probably end up calling him six to eight times a day to check in to make sure everything is okay. a lot of technology quirks end up popping up. is he overall excelling in the classroom. it has been a little challenging though trying to make sure that he is staying on top of his work. make sure he is being able to be logged into the democrats classes there is a lot of stuff that goes into that. jedediah: i'm sure you spent a lot of time talking to other parents in the community. in general, do you feel that most parents want their kids back in school? any hesitate stance? what is the general feeling in
your community about returning to school in person. >> there is definitely a split. there are people better staying at home for the rest of the year. they want to do the online thing. and then there is a large group that are seeing their kids suffer. seeing their kids fully withdraw. i have had friends that have had children try to slit their wrist because they were so unhappy. there is a lot of parent saying their kids are showing grades that they have never seen from their kids before getting d's and f's when they were typically honor roll student. there is a divide on that. that's why we want the options. we want the people who feel they need their kid in person to be successful to have that option and then, of course, the people that feel they're safer at home get them the option of doing online learning. jedediah: you know, jon, that's an important point that you bring to life much like adults kids are different. some life in different ebb environments. this has been a challenge. hopefully the kids that get back to school can do so for the kids and teachers. we loved having you here today

so i'm not really sure where your allegiance lies, your affiliation, dolphins or buccaneers? >> listen, i got to be honest with the american people and the people of florida. i'm a cowboys fan. been that way my entire life. we are struggling right now with you it's going to be a great game tomorrow. will: i knew that you and i would hit it off. it's america's team. as somebody who grew up outside dallas lifelong cowboys fans here we are together. unfortunately we are not in the super bowl. the kansas city chiefs and tampa bay buccaneers. i know what you are talking about. a year ago miami brought in $540 million when the super bowl was hosted in miami. this year in tampa, it's open, it's an exciting experience, congressman. but it's not quite the same. obviously there is a little fewer turnout. businesses are open. what do you think this means, this business impact for tampa this year? >> i think you are seeing the impacts of covid-19. you have a lot of people who are taking their health seriously, as they should.
obviously people have to take responsibility for themselves. i totally promote that. you are going to see a scaled down venue, of course, business owners are going to take their precautions. i'm just happy that the city of tampa is open for business. to host the super bowl. i'm glad the state of florida is letting this happen. it's a great thing for our state. definitely going to help business owners in tampa. it's not going to be what it's been in previous years right now for obvious reasons. will: yeah. i think that's absolutely fair characterization. everyone here is grateful to be open as compared to other places in this country. but, can't help but wish for a little bit more normal year as it could have been. by the way, when it comes to political leadership in florida it seems to be a big win. yourself you had a big win this year. governor ron desantis has kept this state open. i would expect political leadership in florida is pretty proud where the state sits today. >> it is. you know, our people are very happy with the current situation here in the state of florida. of course, people want vaccines faster. but that's going to come. it's just a matter of time. we are also seeing is a
continued depopulation of some of the northern states. simply because their mayors and their governors like in new york just don't know what they are doing. and they are coming here in droves. our real estate market here in florida, especially southwest florida is on fire. people are buying homes sight unseen because they want to get out of these draconian top-down policies out of new york and they are coming here to florida and they're enjoying life. will: congressman dodgeds looks like democrats and the biden administration is looking to push a covid-19 relief bill. 1.9 trillion-dollar covid-19 relief bill through the budget reconciliation process. which means they only need 51 vote. which means they need one party essentially to pass. this they don't need republicans. that's different than what we heard from the biden then candidate joe biden wind chill talked about unity. in fact, that message of unity jen psaki his spokesperson was asked about that yesterday. let's listen to that quickly. >> well, first of all, the president ran on the -- on
unifying the country and putting forward ideas that would help address the crises we're facing. he didn't run on a promise to unite the democratic and republican party into one party in washington. will: so congressman, there you have it. you have a budget reconciliation passed covid-19 bill need nothing republican support. despite what you heard in the past they don't need republicans. they don't need that kind of unity. >> well, first off, let me correct the press secretary. joe biden didn't really run on anything. he ran on saving the soul of america or saving democracy or whatever you want to talk about it. he didn't get much into covid plans except that he had one. now that the elections are over and he is president, now we are seeing that come to fruition. and frankly, it's a wish, it's a grab bag of liberal policies. that's all this is. $15 minimum wage is not going to stimulate our economy. $350 billion to state and local governments is not going to stimulate our economy. school districts already have $55 billion plus to help reopen their schools. they just need the relationship
to do so. so, all we're doing right now is just passing liberal policy in the form of stimulus relief using the crisis to get things done they could not get done during regular order in congress. it's that simple. it's -- that's really what's happening here. wall will all right. congressman byron donalds who is a fan of america's team the dallas cowboys important to note it is going to be bucs chiefs in the super bowl. are you making a pick by the way, congressman? >> you know what? i like the chiefs. i'm not sure how tampa is going to be hold down kelsey and tyreke hill and patrick mahomes that's a bad boy right there. is he really the best player in football. >> he is the best player in football right now. the quarterback on the other sideline is a bad boy as well. all right, congressman, appreciate your time this morning. >> oh, yes. will: thank you. >> thank you; will. will: over to you jedediah. jedediah: thanks, will. we turn to headlines for you. we begin with heart breaking news out of hollywood.

jobs lost during the first two months of the pandemic. on everybody's on board with the plan. barack obama's summers says risks inflation. interview cbs news president biden says 1.9 trillion-dollar relief plan isn't likely to include a $15 federal minimum wage favored by many on the left. this comes as a new grim jobs report says only 49,000 jobs added last month. in january of last year. 225,000 jobs were added, of course, that's before the pandemic hit our shores, will, jed, pete? pete: lucas tomlinson looking dapper with a shave too this morning. we appreciate it, lucas. thank you. great report and by the way that $15 minimum wage they want it but they can't get it because they are doing it through budget reconciliation does not allow for that change. don't get it wrong they would go that far any if they could. they don't have 60 votes for it. will "new york times" nailed it says stimrolled.
you heard he stunt want to get bogged down open to compromise, ultimately if it takes too long we won't go that route. 1.9 trillion-dollar bill that has $3,450,000,000,000 for blue state bailouts, a bunch for public schools. that makes almost 6 billion in total covid relief, will. a million of which is still unspent. there is 400 billion in the bank for small business, 250 billion for schools. 59 billion or or excuse me, 239 billion for healthcare. 5 billion for schools. so, the one thing that's not in there, opening up the economy, but this is something the bide white house thinks it's important. they gshing to do it with 51 votes. will: you know, you mentioned the word budget reconciliation. it's part of the concept of process. and process can become a boring word. white noise. it's something that you tune out on. we shouldn't because process tells the entire story. leading up to the election we
talked about democrats wanting to change the process. packing the supreme court. adding states to add senate seats. and, this pushing legislation through budgets reconciliation as you point out, pete. just takes 51 points. the point is if your ideas aren't that popular and you can't bring others to your side of persuasion. you want to change the process to ensure consistent wins. that's what we see over and over from democrats. change the process. now, why would the ideas be unpopular? perhaps because in the real world they have consequences. you know. new york governor andrew cuomo said new york city may not be back until 2025. now president biden is saying it could take 10 years before the united states comes back to full employment. listen to this. >> talking about recovery package but you saw the jobs report. only 6,000 private sector jobs have been created. and at that rate it's going to take 5 years before we get to full employment. that's not hyperbole, that's
fact. we will be in a situation where take a long, long time. i appreciate y'all coming over because in the urgency with which you are moving, this is about people's lives. this is not just about numbers. this is about people's lice. jedediah: yeah, of course it's going to take a long time 10 years or more if you keep businesses shut down forever. we could be here for 30 years or 40 years. it's ridiculous. i understand the ideology behind stimulus. i understand that people need that extra relief right now pause they have been through unprecedented times, particularly these businesses. if your plan doesn't include reopening the country and you don't say all right, each let these businesses 25%. 30%. 4 o0%, whatever it is to inch back in, you are just not going to get a recovery. side note, any politician who talks about unity ever, i don't care what side of the aisle they are on. if they make you promises about unity they are lying. politics does not thrive on unity. they don't need it. don't believe them. we talked to representative
byron donalds from florida who talked about democrats said they are passing stimulus relief and more. listen to his thoughts. >> joe biden didn't really are up on anything. he ran on saving the soul of america or saving democracy or whatever you want to talk about it. he didn't really get much into covid plans except that he had one. so now that the elections are over. and he is president. now we are seeing that come to fruition. and frankly it's a wish. it's a grab bag of liberal policies. that's all this is. $15 minimum wage is not going to stimulate our economy. $350 billion to state and local governments is not going to stimulate our economy. school districts already have $55 billion plus to help reopen their schools. they just need the leadership to do so. all we are doing right now is just passing liberal policy in the form of stimulus relief. pete: that's exactly right as the "wall street journal" points out this is very different than 2009. this is downturn we created because we had to shut down savings are actually up. pretty products and foreclosures
down. people are ready to go if we will reopen. i have got to admit though will i'm very distracted i'm here in the empty studio and you are in the middle of the party. we can all hear the background music. it makes me feel in the past when we would bring the show there. it's a party atmosphere. i'm jealous, soak it up. enjoy it. we all hear it, okay. you are basically bragging through your audio. and we enjoy it. we will try to forge forward. will: i'm not doing this on person. a minute ago i was being attacked by a flock of seagulls now flock of seagulls is playing over audio here. it's a party. jedediah: and pete, he is also doing it all without a winter coat on just to rub it in. do you see that? pete: i know. it's true. we forge ahead as i said, will, sorry about that. i just had to point it out. the viewers are hearing it, too. there is another topic that's front and center right now it's the border. the policies there have changed a great deal. night and day if you want to talk about elections have consequences how they are
handling what's happening at the border front and center as migrant caravans moving there. magnet effect has been created. and ultimately as catch and release is reinstated because remain in mexico is no longer the policy. if you get here and you can claim asylum you are release and then it's -- we get to find out ultimately whether or not you will show up for a everything harassment white house press secretary jen psaki was asked about mexico stopping to accept families and turning them away from the border and covid threat. here is a portion of what she said. >> what could be done to provide covid testing to migrants at the border? >> are you suggesting they are letting people in across the border? >> they are having to because of the executive order that the president signed earlier this week. >> which executive, which one? >> rescinding president trump's policy which stopped catch and release. they are saying that they are having to provide -- they are having to release some migrants into the community before they know for sure that they do not have covid and they are worried
that it could spread in the community. >> certainly the reason we have put in a number of protections in terms of valve and otherwise is to keep the american people safe but i haven't seen that report. i can't validate the accuracy of it but i would certainly point you to the department of homeland security for more specifics. jedediah: yeah. so that's a nonanswer that tells us absolutely nothing about how they are going to protect an influx of covid-19 cases given the policies that are inside. not uncommon for a press secretary to give a nonanswer but that is one right there for you. need answers on that, jen, if you were concerned about the spread of covid then this aspect of the spread of covid needs to be a of concern as well and people need answers on that. especially people who live in those areas that surround those border towns. will: right now the answer is they are implementing catch and release. that's how they are deal with migrants who might have covid-19. that's having an impact on who comes across our border and what number of illegal immigrant are crossing our border. look at this. it's 253 illegal immigrants have been apprehended near mission,
texas within one hour of each other. that's in one hour's time, 253 illegal immigrants apprehended. we talked to mark morgan a little bit earlier and he talked about the policy that are enticing this illegal immigration. listen. >> i'm very frustrated because they are clearly misleading the american people to really drive a political agenda that is putting america second. look, it's clear, this shouldn't shock anybody that if you send a signals out that our burdens are open, and if you remove essential tools and policies that clearly have been effective, what are the results going to be, increase in illegal immigration, shocker, right? i mean, right now we are looking at 3500 a day trying to illegally enter the united states. and the white house's response is eh, we are forced into. this pete, no they weren't. that's a lie. if they would have listened to the experts and science behind data security or security in fact they would not be doing this. that is the truth. pete: they love to talk about facts and here's a pesky one.
texas hospitals along the border have seen a massive spike in covid-19 cases. as the rush to get to the border has resumed and ultimately there is very little control hough is coming and who is not and who stays and who gets the vaccine as other states are saying hey, we should get vaccines to illegals as well. lots of regular folks, citizens, taxpayers still waiting in line while illegals seems to be in some places moving to the front of it. guys. jedediah: big questions, deserving of answers. we'll wait to see if we get them. will: all right. i will take it here in the middle of the party. there is footballs flying, the music is getting louder. i apologize to all of you. i'm having a good time. i hope you are as well at home. coming up progressives are pushing president biden to forgive student loan debt on a massive scale and it looks like the white house may be caving. our next guest is a college student and she has a lesson of her own to the president

working press secretary general psaki says the white house is quote reviewing whether there are any steps biden can take through executive action. he would welcome the opportunity to sign a bill sent to him by coming. pete: so where does that leave student? campus reform correspondent university of florida student owe fill i can't jacobson joins us now. owe fill i can't, thank you for being here. previously the biden administration says we don't think we have the power. what would it moan for you and others who decided to pay for school we are gog rerace everyone's student debt. >> i attend the university of floral. >> it's a public in state university and i chose to stay in state to avoid paying student loans. i know knew going counsel the road i didn't want to pay off the loans in the future had the opportunity to attend a private out-of-state university that would have cost me had upwards of $80,000 a year in it does raise this question of fairness.
why should i have to pay for the student loans of others who voluntarily chose to go to a more specific school. it's unfair for me and other college students who are in the same situation. jedediah: ophelia, let's look at the numbers. u.s. student debt as of 020. $1.5 trillion held by 42.9 million americans. that is a lot of money we are talking about. but you wrought up the issue of fairness. and you have a lot of people that made decisions like yourself to not incur student debt. but they have other forms of debt. people have mortgages. people have other debt. now should we just forgive all of that? where do you draw the line and how do you make it fair to everyone and not just to one person who made one set of decisions versus another who made another set of decisions? >> exactly. and i mean you heard elizabeth warren saying that this is the most effective action that president biden can take to kick start the economy. buff what she isn't considering is the type of example this would give to the future generation of taxpayers. that the leadership institute campus reform we recognize how this can lead to a slippery slope.
if we're just willing to cancel student loan debt like you mentioned. why can't we cancel credit card debt, mortgage payments. leads to slippery slope. comes at the end of the day people need to learn that they're responsible for their own decisions. they have need to learn this lesson young, preferably before they enter college and take out all of those loans unfortunately we have a generation of college students who think that everything in life is just handed to them on a silver platter when in reality that's not really how it works. will: you are exactly right, owe feelia, what is the argument for student loan debt over any other kind of debt. as we move forward i would guess any contingency or group out there would have the same case to make about having their debt canceled. one more i know you don't have the answers to these because there are no answers to these type of questions is this a one time forgiveness? rolling? what about future college students? will college be completely free? how does that work? >> exactly, again, it all comes down to the question of fairness that unfortunately a lot of college students aren't considering. i talked to dozens of college
students on campuses they all seem to support this plan be but they don't know the answers to those questions. what kind of precedent would this send to future generations they don't know simple facts such as how much would it cost? who would be paying for this in they don't know studies have shown this would actually benefit wealthy americans the most. we have recognized this is a trend that many college student are just jumping behind a movement. jumping behind a plan such as canceling student loan debt and they don't know the full picture. it's partly due to the fact that many progressives, many politicians are leaving these pieces of information outside of their propaganda when they are pushing canceling student loan debt on our youth. >> thank you for highlighting these unanswerable questions this morning. thank you. pete: thank you. >> thank you so much. will: coming up, something i know very well. don't mess with texas. new york mayor learning the hard way not to tangible with governor greg abbott as the two to go toe to toe on twitter. we are live in tampa all morning long as we gear up for the big game ♪

to the dallas cowboys helmet, i did not miss that. that was clearly intentional. will: i didn't do that. pete: it's okay. it's okay. pete: congressman byron daniels who said he's a fan of america's team either. it just happen, pete. pete: it's all rigged, jed, we know how it works but here is one thing we do know is that in will cain today is in direct violation of the unwritten shav ing law of fox & friends and the last time i committed that sin, it was in september of 2018 , and this is what happened to me on sunday, will. right here. will: oh. pete: they shaved it off my face , live on the air in 2018 after i tried to do what i wanted and have have a full blown beard. i know steph freeman is down there maybe we can line somebody up to take care of that today. there is the before and after from 2018. will cain, you're about to head into that buzz saw right there.
will: there was some investment in that beard that took some time. you had to give up something on tv there. jedediah: [laughter] i'm just going to go out on a limb and say that i prefer the before. i'm a fan of the scruff as you guys know. we've been watching all morning will cain without his winter coat out in that warm weather dressed in a pirates costume eating delicious food need less to say pete and i are just a tad bit jealous but we love having you there, right on the ground, getting the news for us, getting the fun for us, we've been having a great time. from here though, we're going to talk some politics because one of the other topics that we've been addressing all morning and we've been addressing it with actually an important bracket which is students themselves who have been really vocal about school reopenings, will it happen, will it not happen, a lot of unclear messaging coming from the biden administration. we know that the cdc director came out this week on wednesday, i believe, and said vaccinations are not a prerequisite to have schools reopen and now the white house is struggling and white
house press secretary jen psaki was pressed for answers and this is her response. >> will president biden use the power of the bully pulpit to help get teachers who are unwilling to go back-to-schools to go back? >> i'm just going to reject the premise of the question. we're going to rely on cdc guidance which again is not officially out yet to determine the best way to do it, but there are several mitigating factors that we've seen in data to-date that will help make it safe. >> sounds like a yes with an asterisk. >> if you are the spokesperson for the white house you could certainly say that but you are not. will: not relying on cdc guidance nor science and not doing much of anything to try to get students back in school. we should point out the federal government has only limited influence, limited power when it comes to pushing kids back into school. that's largely a local and state issue; however, as that reporter pointed out, the president has the bully pulpit and he can mount a public pressure campaign
to get our children back in school but joe biden has not done that. why? here might be the answer. here are some of your biggest donations from teacher's unions among politicians. take a look at your screen right there, bernie sanders 51,000, gary peters democratic politician 37,000, elizabeth warren 34,000, but all the way over on the left side of your screen, joe biden? 232000. pete, i would say even more important though than financial donations is the membership of those unions, what delivers votes to democratic politicians, and take a quick look at that. the nea, the national education association, 3 million member, the american federation of teachers 1.7 million members and locally in new york, 600,000 members of their united teacher 's union. right there, that is why joe biden is not using the bully pulpit. pete: that's exactly right. teacher's unions are the foundation stone of the modern democrat party. go to take may home state of minnesota.
the mea, the minnesota education association, the most powerful lobby there, they're the ones pushing to keep and make schools be close. they're the ones standing at the podium with the governor when he is announcing new guidelines. same thing here. his wife, dr. jill biden is a member of a teacher's union and they wanted to nominate an education secretary, potentially with a union background. all of this adds up to in those negotiations, with democrat mayors, remember the one in chicago lori lightfoot trying to get schools open and the union is saying we want to defund the police and we want moratoriums on rent payments as well it's extortion from left wing interest groups unions to get what they want, using kids as a pawn in the process. all the while, these unions say we need to follow the science, because the science needs to protect our teachers, well that's exactly the kind of thing that joe biden and others have said on the left, which they refuse to do now the cdc, jed, as you talked about has said you can open without the vaccine. here is a portion of how joe biden has talked about following
the impacts. >> these steps we're asking people to take are political statements. everyone is based on science, real science. first and foremost is we're going to follow again the science and we'll follow the guidance of science. it's based on science, not politics. it's based on truth, not denial. >> making a commitment to base solutions on the best available science. >> and that's one of the things the president is restoring today , in the executive order, is respect for science, and the science. >> we restored our commitment to science and to create policies grounded infarcts and evidence. jedediah: yeah so the policies with respect to schools as we know has not been based on science keeping these kids out of school. we know it's not super spreader events to send kids to school and what jen psaki is talking about measures that could be taken those measures have already been taken in many private schools and catholic schools and schools around the country they had the masks
and divedders and numerous social distancing measures and they have proven time and time again and we have the stats to prove that that they are able to mitigate spread and one of the things we talked about with respect to this is risks that are involved of not having kids in that in-person learning setting. we have the great privilege of speaking with a lot of kids this morning who told us directly how excited they are to get back-to-school. what its been like to be out of school and i think it's really important, guys, to hear from these children of all ages. we spoke to kids as young as kindergarten, and as old as high schoolers. let's take a listen to some of what they had to say. >> i'm hoping we'll be able to salvage whatever is left of the school year, maybe we'll learn a little more, do a little more. >> honestly, i just want to see people again. i just want to have my old life at school again, as much of it as i can. >> i like going back-to-school. i also like to do projects. >> when i'm at school we have a lot of fun and math is my
favorite subject. >> i'm looking forward to see ing my teacher and seeing my friends. >> i'm super happy. >> excited and nervous. will: you know i just want emphasize enough one of the reasons we do interviews like that you were talking to students, jed, or the reason we've been at diners pete and i traveled across the countries to talk to the real issues affect ing them while so many others focus on the various politicians and theories, this is what's impacting americans. you're hearing directly from students right there, how their lives are being affected. i seen what you heard in that interview, jedediah. i've seen what my sons have done it takes 15 seconds to respond to a teacher through a virtual learning session because you have to unmute, wait for somebody to speak, it's just all very unnatural, and of course, not as good as we need to educate our children, pete. pete: and the glazing of the eyes you see on a child whose in second grade trying to look at a screen and comprehend what's going on and it ain't going to happen. meanwhile take minnesota for
example,, they don't have the schools open but pushing critical race theory through a new initiative of the governor, or san francisco where the schools aren't open, but they are renaming them and rip ping names like lincoln and washington off the schools. so they are doing some thing, jed, just not bringing kids into the classroom. jedediah: and this strategy has really favored the privileged. you know, if you don't have access to a lot of this technology at home you're at a huge disadvantage. if you're a member of a family where one parent has had to quit a job and now just exiting on one income that's not always possible that has put an enormous financial strain on families around the country so that needs to be factored in because that then takes a toll on children as well, you have children and families with financial struggle now, they're trying to learn on a computer, they don't have access to classmates they are suffering with mental health issues as a result of this. we really need to weigh the risk s at this point. this is a very long time for kids to be in a remote learning setting. we spoke with john lad, a father of a student i believe it was a sophomore on the struggles of remote learning with his son who
is autistic let's take a listen to what he had to say. >> our neighboring districts in chandler, gilbert, mesa, have all been in school the majority of the school year. they seem to find a way to navigate it and give parents the option of being online or in-person. that's all we're really looking for. there are people that are just better staying at home, they say for the rest of the year, they want to do the online thing, and then there's a large group that are seeing their kids suffer, seeing their kids fully withdraw people feel they need their kid in-person to be successful to have that option and of course the people that feel they're safer at home give them the option of doing online learning. pete: absolutely. the thing is, guy, every political leader of ours today has become a scientist and they want to say follow the science and i'm all about the science and the science is leading me here and the science is leading me there and the rest of us look at it through common sense and realize there's a complete double standard happening a lot of places and in a lot of locations especially places like new york and we don't want to talk too much about new york
because will i love the fact that you're in tampa, showing our viewers that in other places , in america, things are open. businesses are happening. mask mandates, there are no curfew, there's no 25% dining, but here, in new york, with king cuomo, whose now a scientist, king cuomo, he's declaring that new york city can't open indoor dining until valentine's day and that the curfew that is across new york state will not yet be lifted, but here he is now starting to say well, maybe, kind of we'll open up indoor dining, a little bit sooner in new york. i don't know is there new science, we'll see. listen. >> i've talked to the restaurants about it. they are eager to do indoor dining. i get the point about friday/ saturday but let's look at the numbers over the weekend and talk about it on monday. i want to reopen as much as anybody wants to reopen anything but let's look at the numbers over the weekend and
then we'll have the conversation on monday. the curfew is because when people tend to stay later and they just are drinking, then there's more gatherings. you can't drink and wear a mask. maybe if the bills were in the super bowl it be a different conversation. jedediah: and the argument is what he's saying the curfew, they think the later it gets people drink more and it turns from a restaurant into a bar into a club atmosphere. people get a little more wreckless. i don't know there may be some truth to that when it comes to people's behavior and how the night progresses. the thing is though this can't go on forever, right? so i want to know what does it mean? does a certain segment of the population percentage wise have to be vaccinated before they're willing to reopen society because these businesses can't go on in this capacity forever, so what is that number, what does it need to look like? i think that's a question that's a valid question for businesses
and for people citizens who are deciding whether they want to stay in new york or leave new york. they need to know this information at this point. will: you know i couldn't laugh at his bills joke because everything else he was saying in that clip was so ridiculous. everything else was so absurd. you can't gather past 10 p.m., add that to california saying you can't have outdoor bars. it's also condescending and ridiculous. we've lost, i don't know what we've lost, we've certainly given into fear in this country and we're making decisions, based upon risk factors at this point, that are so miniscule and you pointed out, pete being in tampa. this is a very real thing, covid-19 but we can balance it so we can live a real life and we can as individuals make these choices as free people to balance our risks. we don't have to be condescending to, big brothered and dictated to by governors and mayors across this country like that, over and over again, because real people pay the price. like, for example, some of these restaurant owners who have been talking to throughout the morning take a listen to this. >> the governor wants to follow the science, this governor also
wants to support fairness. i think he'll do the right thing and level the playing field for all these restaurants, especially since the science supports that. the policies so far has driven more people to eat, drink, and gather as you just heard him say but they're doing it in their homes, the transmission rate is higher in their homes, there's no precautions. >> the science, the science is showing that this thing is transmitting through private gatherings without masks and without proper protection, without ppe, without six foot safety shields and without all the stuff that we have, so why are we promoting partying and doing this in your own home when you have these safe restaurants that have all these things in place? pete: yeah, i liked greg's suggestion of duff's famous wings why don't we do a public announcement campaign to encourage people to go eat at outdoor dining or restaurants because it's probably safer there than packing people into their own homes the exact opposite of course of what we're being told those are two out state new york restaurant owners but up next after nearly

famous steele dossier creation is leading the charge just as he did in the swing state and on the 91st day which was monday, my opponent raised a dominion voting machine issue and said the machines had discrepancies, we needed to go back and do another count, and all of this , i think, was very clear in the judge's order. all of this has been explored. i don't think you can do a more comprehensive decision and election that we've done, 94 days is a long time. will: that is a long time. all right, we congratulate you on your victory, sorry for the technical troubles glad to have you on the show. pete: thank you, congresswoman. >> thank you very much. will: coming up the national guard in d.c., coming with nearly half a billion dollar price tag, our army veteran says it's about time they come home, his message to politicians, next , and two nfl grates share their predictions for the big game. it's kurt warner and mark griffin, both super bowl champions they will join us live

through march. that's the thing, that's the scary point. look, i was active duty, army national guard for 12 years and i know you serve as well. i understand that our troops have to do things, they have to be called on by the nation and especially in the terms of the national guard, there's states, governors. these troops are being lended out by their states to go to d.c., and just like you said, for what? intel that there any be heightened threat risk around february 9 for the impeachment of donald trump. well, my response to that be , well maybe if congress focused a little more on the american people, and actually getting the stimulus money they have already passed this bill to get them in the first place and a little less against the personal vendetta of a now- private citizen maybe they wouldn't be having these insider threats in the first place. i don't like our military service members being used as pawns and i think any rational person that looks at all the events since the
inauguration, all of the mistreatment, everything you sought, all of the overbearing missplanning of having this massive amounts of troops going into washington, that they knew were going to be there that they did not plan for , i've said it once, i'll say it again. governors, you need to bring your troops back now. pete: and some have. >> because we're going to pay for this. pete: and some have as you point out like florida and others have said enough is enough they're coming home. in addition to what you talked about there's been ideological vetting of the troops that are there on capitol hill and now it's happening across the entire military, with a 60 day stand down. you mentioned threat. here is what the department of homeland security is saying as far as a continuing threat after the inauguration. they say information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with the objection to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition could continue to mobilize to insight or commit violence, so, information suggests that some could maybe kind of sort of it reads like
something you could drive a truck through if you want to keep troops there indefinitely. >> exactly and that's what this is. nothing says governor, for the people of the people, by the people, for the people, much like guarded military troops, permanent fencing around the people's house. this is not north korea. this is america and if we're wanting to unify as the biden administration is saying that they want us to do, this military stance and this case in point to go aggressive all the time is the exact opposite. they're doing the exact opposite of what they preach. pete: yup, nancy pelosi will never get a base named after her maybe fort pelosi is what she's going for. >> thanks, pete good to see you pete: coming up america gearing up for a super showdown in tampa here with their predictions former super bowl mvp kurt warner and mark griffith. don't go anywhere. >> ♪ welcome to the jungle, we got fun and games ♪

will: welcome back i'm live in tampa, ahead of the big game, final preparations are underway for one of the most highly-anticipated super bowls in recent memory. why? because on one sideline, you have one quarterback, pat rake m ahomes, and the kansas city chiefs who are defending their title against the tampa bay buccaneers led by future hall of fame, tom brady, whose making his tenth appear in the big game and here to help us break down this epic matchup, not one, but two past super bowl mvp's we've got legendary nfl quarterback kurt warner and mark griffin. guys, thanks so much for being with us here, this morning. mark, let's start with you for a second here. everybody wants to talk about the quarterbacks and we should because we have the best in the game today against the greatest of all times. are these quarterbacks, how do you pick against one? people have lost a lot of money and reputational value betting against tom brady on the other hand how do you pick against
patrick mahomes? >> first of all, good morning, will, kurt, that's a great question. you got the modern playing in a game what a matchup this is and it's hard to bet against either of these guys and i think we're going to be entertained this coming sunday. and it's going to be a great show sunday afternoon. will: kurt, i saved the second question for you because you and i have a little bit of a relationship. i've known you and i know i'm going to give you this harder one. give me something that's going to determine the outcome of this game. give me something besides the quarterbacks like what's the x factor, what's going to determine this game, decides tom brady and patrick mahomes? >> you know, will, i believe it's pressure by the two defense s. you know, we can look at on the kansas city side, they've got backup tackles playing against two of the best pass rushers and jpp, and then on the
other side when these teams played in week 12, the chiefs were able to throw some different things at tom brady. now we know we've seen everything, he's seen everything , but they threw some different things at him, confused him early, led to some turnovers, so if there's one thing that i'm looking at, it's can had defense can get more pressure on these two quarter backs because these guys are both great and they both can entertain us, but every quarterback drops a little bit if you could get pressure in his face. will: okay, i hope you're not saving your pick for tomorrow. so i'm going to ask both of you, mark and kurt. give me your pick, quickly, which one, give everybody a tip here, mark. which way do we go? buccs or chiefs? >> i'm going just because i think i don't know how many more years tom has, and the defense coordinator is my teammate in washington and i know that he's got some after their meeting in week 12 like kurt said, so it's just so hard to bet against patrick mahomes, but i'm going b
uccs 35-31. will: nice, kurt you giving me a pick? >> yeah, i'll give you a pick the right to change my pick by tomorrow when i have to pick it on our show but i'll go the other direction, i'll go with the chiefs. i think the chiefs are the better team here. i think they are the more complete team, and i go with the kid in this one. will: right. well, i'm going to go with mark, by the way. i think the tampa bay buccaneer defense is the x-factor in this game and they are under rated. let me ask you kurt really quickly about what you're here to talk about, the concussion therapy. it's fascinating both how it's administered and what it can do for anyone, not just quarterback s but anyone that encounters a concussion tell me about that kurt. >> yeah, will, i'm pumped about this drug. it is a drug that could be administered nasally on the spot so concussions have been a hot button issue in our sport, whether it be parents trying to get their kids involved all the way up to the nfl level, and the long term effect of that so to have a drug that could be administered on the spot, and
you know, cut down the inflammation, we believe it could have long term impacts and prevent some of those consequences and, will, i don't know if you know that my oldest son suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was four months old, and so i think about the what ifs. what if we had a drug like this at that point? how might things be different for my son, so this is about football, because that's where mark and i live, but this is bigger than that. this can be military, this can be for accidental injuries and whathave you so we're extremely excited about this drug and it's a one of a kind and i believe it could be a game changer. will: right. yeah, that's a wonderful message i know you've had that personal experience, kurt. math both of you thank you for promoting that and thanks for sharing your breakdown of the game this morning, thanks, guys. >> you bet, will. can i say one more thing, will? real quick? will: please. >> i'm so excited that the champion with kurt on this , and the odyssey group

plains upper midwest you'll notice that this weekend. wind chills is what it feels like when you step outside from negative 20 to negative 50 in some of the upper reaches of the country and that's stretching down around lake michigan, so this is what those temperatures look like. your forecasted wind chills and you see a lot of spots just hanging the entire day all the way into your sunday, negative 30, negative 40 degrees , horribly cold. that's not the only winter weather we're tracking there's another system that's going to be sweeping across the country. we're looking at another round of perhaps winter weather in the mid-atlantic stretching up to new england not as much as we saw last sunday but still there's snow on the ground so that's something we're paying attention to, mostly again on the day on sunday and into sunday evening and of course what's the other thing happening on sunday i'll leave you with your super bowl forecast. even though there is some forecasted rain early in the day i think it clears up by game time. temperatures right around 70 degrees and mostly clear, so good for football back out to you guys. will: i wonder how quick that field drains. will we have a muddy field? pete: last year, we had the
groundskeeper on, will that's your assignment today, go find the groundskeeper and get that answered. will: the guy is like 92 years old that's done every super bowl pete: yeah, that guy, we got him he was on with us. will: awesome. i'll go look for him. all right, coming up negotiations between the chicago teachers union and public schools failing, leaving student s still out of the classroom. hear from a chicago dad of six who says it's time the union stop holding students hostage. >> plus our coverage continues, live from tampa. >> ♪ this is how we roll ♪

rejects the city's latest offer on a deal to reopen classrooms. mayor lori lightfoot venting her frustration over the stalemate. >> time is running out. we need our kids back in school. we need our parents to have that option. delays from the ctu leadership, my patience is over. jedediah: caught in the middle is our next guest, willie pres ton is a father of six in chicago. willie thanks for joining us father of six and your kids are in interesting age brackets. you've got pre-k, third grade, fifth grade, seventh grade and freshman and sophomore in high school so you are a legitimate expert on what's going on with remote learning but first and foremost your thoughts on this new delay in terms of a delay to reopen in-person learning for students. >> well first of all, thank you for having me, and thank you for not asking how my children were because i'll get in trouble the first thing i want to say is
that parents are completely ignored right now, and my thoughts are that our children are being held hostage right now by the chicago teacher's union and as a union guy, i believe in unions. this is not an easy thing to say but it is difficult to support the chicago teacher's union at this moment when they clearly, clearly, have disregarded our children, and this is really really frustrating. jedediah: so now, willie, as a parent of kids in all those different age brackets, you really had to deal with remote learning for many different ages. it's different for out pre-k versus a kindergartener versus a 7th grader. is there a particular age that you feel has been most challenged by this remote setup? >> you know, i think that all of the children have been challenged by this in their own unique ways, as you said, they're all in different stages in their childhood, but i'm particularly concerned about my very young children, my daughter
who is four years old, who was actually going to in-person learning and was on week three before this latest impasse started. i'm concerned about her, because we all know that we have to set our children off on a solid foundation and that solid foundation is education. she'll never get these years back. i'm concerned about our eight- year-old whose at a very crucial moment in his life in his childhood so i think that these things are, it's a wide agreement that there is no substitute for in-person learning and, you know, we have to sit down and really come together as responsible adults, and put the children first, and right now, that is not happening in chicago. jedediah: so willie, what the is your message then to teacher's unions. they are saying that they want all teachers together vaccinated before this can go through. we all know even with vaccination there be some risk that would still exist. what is your message to them as
a parent? >> please hear the voices of parents. we are depending on our city to start working again. we're working for our children. we can no longer sit back and fight and bicker and move goal posts week after week because our children are getting severe ly damaged by this fight. this is beyond politics for us, as parents. please. please consider the children right now of chicago. that is the only message. we have to put the children first. jedediah: well, willie, you know , i think what you're saying is you're speaking for a lot of parents. i think a lot of parents around the country not only in chicago have felt this way . thanks for joining us and for your passion on the subject and i wish we wish the best to your children as well. >> thank you so much. jedediah: and your whole family. thank you. coming up, tom brady making a record tenth appearance at the super bowl and he's not the only one making history. the women also making history at

happy super bowl weekend. will: yes. >> so many fascinating story lines take your pick, right try this one on for size, tom brady if he wins that will be seven super bowl rings, that's more than any nfl franchise in history. crazy isn't it? okay, the case for tom brady and the tampa bay buccs. one their defensive line, better than the chiefs o line especially with injuries the chiefs are dealing with. number two, tom brady just makes everybody around him better, doesn't he? one receiver goes down, no problem, antonio brown, if he can't go, look there's griff god win, and he looks just as good so i think it's going to be a very high- scoring game however i am going to go with the chiefs 35- 30, and that's because the chiefs big three, you've got patrick mahomes, and travis kelsey and when all three are on , you have to pick your poison there's no way to stop them all. because pat mahomes can hurt you with his leg and then how do you
account for kelsey and you can't this one is going to be a high- scoring one and so much fun to watch, and i think bruce aria s is going to fight until the very end of course that coach, his philosophy, no risk it no biscuit, you'll see some fun plays. pete: i think you're right and if he's willing to take those risks which makes for a very fun super bowl and you mentioned tom brady, matt rick mahomes when he was born, that's the casm between the two of them but we got to talk about fox bet super six, it's all on the line here for the super bowl >> yeah, we're not done yet. so go ahead and download that fox super six app from your app store, free to play, $250,000 on the line, you just have to answer six questions, hopefully, this little segment helps a little bit. you'll be watching the super bowl anyway, so you might as well play and try to win a little free money from terry bradshaw. will: that's right you're watching it anyway, so get a
