>> woo! talladega! >> just keep it going, all the way, rachel, all the way home. go to church. ♪ maria: good sunday morning, everyone. welcome to "sunday morning futures." i'm maria bartiromo. the first 100 days, joe biden's radical policies on full display this week as he gears up for this first joint address to congress and his 100th day in office. coming up, kentucky senator rand paul on open borders, higher taxes and the administration's green new deal. will the democrats be able to push biden's progressive plans through the senate. plus, the last line of defense, the attorney generals across the
nation suing. daniel cameron on the democrats' constant race baiting, why any policy they don't like becomes a civil rights issue. then, sherlock holmes to the rescue, kamala harris tells us that poverty perhaps brought on by climate change is the root cause of the immigration crisis, with hundreds of thousands surging to the u.s. border every month. as if poverty changed with handoff in administration. will the vice president admit that it's her administration's policies, open borders, that are the same reason so many are taking this dangerous, sometimes fatal trek to america. mike turner on what the foreign adversaries make of all of this and why the u.s. is cutting its defense spending now as the threats are rising. plus, social media's cancel culture, james o'keefe on exposing the fraudsters and fighting back against the radical left, all that right now as we look ahead on "sunday
morning futures." maria: first up this morning, biden's radical agenda, with his first joint address of to congress and the 100th day in office both happening this week on wednesday and thursday. biden has made no secret of his plans to become the most progressive u.s. president in history. he's already well on his way, with 40-radical executive orders in the can and a big thumbs up from alexandria ocasio-cortez who said this week he definitely exceeded expectations that progressives had. texas senator ted cruz believes this is part of a broader power grab. watch. >> what are senate democrats trying to do? they're trying to add new senators to the senate so they keep control forever. they're trying to change voting in america so democrats can never lose. and they want to pack the u.s. supreme court with four left wing radicals.
this is an assault fundamentally on the independence of the judiciary. maria: joining me right now with his take is kentucky senator rand paul, he's the ranking member of the senate committee on small business and entrepreneurship. he sits on the foreign relations and homeland security committees. senator, good morning to you. thanks very much for being here. >> good morning. maria: we're on the doorstep of 100 days. assess the agenda. >> well, you know, just a couple months ago we were hearing from president biden, the newly inaugurated president biden that he was going to unify the country and then we were going to work together and have bipartisanship. i'm still waiting, mr. president. i haven't seen any of that. i think what i've seen so far is it's biden's way or the highway. so right off the bat instead of working together on anything to do with covid or vaccines, they put together a massive $2 trillion bill where less than 10% of it had anything to do with vaccines. now they're doing the same thing on infrastructure. apparently reparations are
infrastructure, apparently child care is infrastructure, healthcare. of they've got a climate police force they're going to put out, youth force. but i don't see anything that looks like they want to work together. now, there are those of us who are saying we could be for some bipartisan infrastructure bill if it had to do with real infrastructure like roads and bridges and if it was paid for. but so far i don't see any of that coming from biden. i predict they're going to ram through something with only democrat votes and no republican participation again to a tune of a couple trillion dollars. maria: well, how do you justify ramming all of this through, through reconciliation, through executive orders when he keeps saying unity, unity. for example, let's talk about this upcoming week. we will hear details on the economic plan. how high will taxes go? what's the impact of all of this? and many of your colleagues have complained that this, quote, unquote, infrastructure package is really a green new deal. >> well, and the markets are
jittery about doubling the capital gains tax and then some, raising the corporate income tax. one of the best things we did in the republican years under trump was lower the corporate income tax and it brought hundreds of millions of dollars to the u.s. in bowling green, kentucky, the corvette plant added 400 jobs because general motors had hundreds of millions of dollars returned to them by having lower corporate tax. when you raise this, the opposite happens. we'll have more jobs go overhe overseas, more corporations going overseas. more troubling is rising the capital gains tax. there's a risk that you'll see a significant market reaction to this. the other thing is, we're printing up so much money that there's going to be real inflation and i think there's going to be a day in which people wake up and say oh, my goodness, what have we done to our country and sometimes this
happens gradually. sometimes the market can react in remarkable ways such that we could have never predicted. that's the kind of thing i'm worried about with all the money being printed up. maria: oh, yeah. and the highest rate on capital gains is for the highest earners, it's going to go all the way up to 33.4% we understand and of course logic tells you if you have made money on the sale of your home, if you have made money in your portfolio, you obviously are going to sell that in 2021 and get a 20% cap gains tax versus 2022 where you could be facing upwards of 43% giving to the government. so you make a great point. it's something i've been covering a lot on fox business on "mornings with maria" as well. but senator, i want to talk about you being the last line of defense in the senate. these things have to get through the senate in order to become law. i'm talking about killing the filibuster, getting hr1 through, packing the supreme court. you've spoken extensively about election reform. tell me about hr1.
why aren't we seeing corporate ceos react to that the way they are reacting to the georgia voting law? >> you know, i still am having trouble fathoming the hysteria that came from coca-cola and delta and major league baseball over the georgia bill. we passed visiter l wally the same -- virtually in kentucky, signed by a democrat governor and lauded as expanding access, because we expanded early voting the same way they did in georgia. to hear the democrats shouting jim crow, jim crow, do they not realize the history of the democrat party was jim crow, that not any god-fearing republican voted for jim crow, that jim crow throughout the south was done by democrat legislators, that the people who were beating up john lewis on the bridge in selma were all democrats. in my state, we have a proud history, william morally was a black republican, founder of the naacp, he fought the first case to the supreme court to get rid of forced segregation that came
from democrats. i'm for one sick and tired of democrats, they need to apologize for their history and foisting jim crow on the country and they need to read the bill in georgia and a realize it has nothing to do with voting. maria: should joe biden apologize. >> he should apologize for mischaracterizing and lying about the bill. half the country is republicans and we're not very happy with them right now. if they don't want republicans at the baseball games, don't want us to tune into their baseball games on television, keep behaving this way. this is terrible. i've always been a baseball fan. i grew up playing baseball, still play in the congressional baseball charity game. people like me who love baseball don't like being caused a racist by major league baseball. don't like delta and coca-cola calling us that.
we're going to push back. if they continue in this direction, maybe republicans don't have to drink coca-cola anymore. maria: the wall street journal wrote about the one democrat that is fighting hr1 and we've got him on tape here as he testified. as you know, the new hampshire secretary of state, bill garth gardner, let's listen to this. >> it's my understanding that you oppose hr1 in the senate equivalent. is that correct? >> yes. >> in 30 seconds or less, why? >> well, first of all, we don't have any early voting in new hampshire and for all the studies that show that early voting actually helps turnout, i can show you plenty of academic studies that show the opposite. >> it would be a power grab when it came to new hampshire voting, is that fair to say, by the federal government. >> yes. and the same thing with no fault
absentee. maria: that was bill gardner there, testifying. let me say that the secretary of state of new hampshire will be my special guest tomorrow morning on "mornings with maria" on fox business. i hope you will join me then to hear more from bill gardner. your thoughts there, senator. i also want to get your take on what we're seeing in terms of the covid response at this point. you know, this past week president biden had a climate summit. i thought it was really ironic xi jinping was one of the featured speakers since china is one of the world's biggest polluters. look at the shot we have of the virtual summit, it was a summit led by the white house. only one wearing a mask is joe biden. you've got leaders from across the world sitting there, virtually, and he's got a mask on. what do you make of this? >> i guess this means that dr. fauci has now determined you can get covid, you can catch it through your web cam.
that's the only thing i can conclude. but really, it's silly and this type of theater really is distracting to people who need to go out and get the vaccine. we have a lot of people, particularly those over age 40 and those who were overweight who all need to get the vaccine. and that all of the vaccines, the risks of the vaccines are less than the risk of the disease, particularly if you're over 40 and overweight. when biden goes on the computer screen to a zoom call and wears a mask, he's making a mockery of the scice and this is dissuading people who are skeptical anya way. if you want to convince people who are skeptical that the vaccine works show them we have protection after vaccinated, show them after we have the disease we have protection. let people live again. but by doing this sort of fake science and wearing a mask while you're on a zoom call, it shows great ignorance of science but it also tells the people that
you're really being dishonest with them and they tend not to believe the other things you will tell them. maria: yeah. by the way, in that shot i think it's really interesting to point out that president biden is the only leader without a flag behind him. everybody has their flag. we don't have the american flag behind joe biden. interestingly. real quick before you go, josh hawley and mike braun introducing a bill that would force the administration to declassify the intelligence related to the origin of covid. i mean, covid-19 has killed millions across the world, more than half a million here in the united states. and every opportunity that president biden has had in terms of speaking with xi jinping the subject never comes up. can you explain this, why he has a private phone call with xi jinping and he never asks him why the chinese communist party hid this to the world, cornered us in terms of the ppe and allowed the virus to escape its
borders. not a word from anybody on the origins of covid. i thought this was the priority. >> there's a huge ethical question about the origins of the virus. the ethical question is should we be doing gain of function, should we be upgrading animal viruses in the lab to make them more susceptible to humans. i can't tell you for certain this escaped the lab. i think it's a reasonable question to ask. what you have to ask dr. fauci is why did he in overseeing these labs allow gain of function? why is he allowing labs to get government money to upgrade animal viruses so they can infect humans. we got worried about this two or of three years ago. we closed down about half of them. dr. fauci and his committees opened them back up. we need to ask why are we doing this in china but are we doing this in the u.s.? are we giving viruses the ability to p invade the human species and he potentially letting them out of the lab. i know we don't want them out. it might be inadvertent in china or here. i think we should be discussing
the danger of increasing the potency of a virus and allowing it to escape animals and humans because we doctored the virus. maybe we shouldn't be doing that. maria: i would love to get your medical expertise and i'm also very interested in your bill to ensure that the federal government stops spying on regular americans, that's a subject for another time. it's good to see you this morning. thanks very much, sir. >> thank you. maria: senator r57bd paul. coming up, attorney general daniel cameron is here, a rising star in the gop, how he is fighting back against the democrats' radical agenda and his reaction to the derek chauvin verdict and if president biden put his political thumb on the scales of justice, all that and more right after this. we made usaa insurance for members like martin. an air force veteran made of doing what's right, not what's easy. so when a hailstorm hit, usaa reached out before he could even inspect the damage. that's how you do it right. usaa insurance is made just the way martin's family needs it with hassle-free claims,
black americans. profound fear and trauma, the pain, the exhaustion on black and brown americans experience every single day. murder of george floyd launched a summer of protest we hadn't seen since the civil rights era in the '60s. protests that unify people of every race and generation with peace and with purpose to say enough, enough, enough of the senseless killing. maria: that was president biden on tuesday, reacting to derek chauvin's guilty verdict as he and the vice president instead of trying to unite us and lift us up on such an emotional day told us how terrible and systemically racist this country is, minutes after the verdict came down. my next guest has a unique perspective on race and criminal justice in america, not only is daniel cameron kentucky's first black attorney general, he's also the first republican to hold the office in over 70 years
and we are honored this morning to have him with us. ag daniel cameron, thanks very much for being here. >> thanks for having me, maria. maria: do you believe this country is systemically racist? >> well, no, i don't believe this country is systemically racist. what i believe is that this country has always tried from the very beginning to become a more perfect union. and certainly we've had our challenges throughout this nation's history and there's no hiding from that. but when you hear comments like you heard from president biden and others that throw fuel on the fire that explode the tensions that we have in this country, that's not good for hoping to unify this country and so in my part, i try to stay away from hyperbolic terms, try to make sure i reflect love and christ in my comments and try not to be caustic. i'm going to continue to do that, i'm going to continue to reach out to reach out to folks
that have different views from me. of course, as i stated earlier, we have challenge in this country, but the promise of a more perfect union is one step away, one step closer. i think we can get there if we put aside casting aspersions on one another and hold hands and walk together to our future. maria: i agree. what do you do in the face of all of this rhetoric then, general? i mean, last weekend maxine waters called on rioters to stay on the streets, get in their faces, get more confrontational if chauvin was acquitted. leader kevin mccarthy tried to censor here. the democrats stopped it, tabled it. even nancy pelosi says waters has nothing to apologize for. what are we left to think and to do in the face of this? >> well, i think it's important that republicans make sure that we show a strong vision, an alternative for how this country
can look. that's why i'm excited that after president biden tells us what he's going to do in terms of taxing and spending and what have you, that we're going to hear a very positive, a very forward-looking vision from senator tim scott. he's a personal friend of mine. i'm excited about what he's going to have say about the vision of this country and how republicans can align with that vision for the working men and women of this country. i think that's incredibly important as we move forward. when i talk about the working men and women of this country, i'm talking about folks that look like me, that folks, maria, that look like you, that folks that are the rainbow if you will of this country and so it's important for republicans to make sure that we're tapping into that renewed spirit of reaching out and working with the working men and women of this country, to make sure they have good paying jobs, to make sure that they're able to take care of the issues that are of the focus of the dinner table at night and so i'm excited about what he has to say. things like what maxine waters
and again president biden have said, those things really hurt the unification of this country going forward. maria: you're right. yeah. i want to get into the issues. general, let's take a break and come back and talk about the issues that you're pushing back on this administration. we'll be right back with daniel cameron. our retirement plan with voya, keeps us moving forward. hey, kevin! hey, guys! they have customized solutions to help our family's special needs... hey, graduation selfie! well done! and voya stays by our side, keeping us on track for retirement... ...giving us confidence in our future... ...and in kevin's. you ready for your first day on the job? i was born ready. go get 'em, kev. well planned. well invested. well protected. voya. be confident to and through retirement. a lot of people think dealing with copd is a walk in the park. if i have something to help me breathe better, everything will be fun and nice.
but i still have bad days flare-ups (coughs), which can permanently damage my lungs. my lungs need protection against flare-ups. so it's time to get real. because in the real world our lungs deserves the real protection of breztri. breztri gives you better breathing symptom improvement, and flare-up protection. it's the first and only copd medicine proven to reduce flare-ups by 52% breztri won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. it is not for asthma. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. don't take breztri more than prescribed. breztri may increase your risk of thrush, pneumonia, and osteoporosis. call your doctor if worsened breathing, chest pain, mouth or tongue swelling, problems urinating, vision changes, or eye pain occur. for real protection ask your doctor about breztri.
maria: welcome back. we are back with kentucky attorney general daniel cameron. general cameron, i want to ask you about the actions that you have taken against this administration, particularly as it relates to taxes and your ability to cut tax as well as the cancellation of the xl pipeline. first, let's talk voting rights. here is stacy abrams with senator john cornyn. watch this. >> voter id, sometimes it's
racist, sometimes it's not racist. >> the intent always matters, sir and that is the point of this conversation. that is the point of the jim he crow narrative. that jim crow did not simply look at the activities, it looked at the intent, it looked at the behavior and targeted behaviors that were disproportionately used by people of color. maria: as you know, ag cameron, the democrats are making election integrity a civil rights issue. this week florida governor ron de santis said his state will sue if hr1 is passed, probably win. what can you do in kentucky, given you have a democrat governor? >> well, maria, i think it's sad and unfortunate that you hear those sorts of comments from ms. abrams as relates to the bill that was passed in georgia. georgia has done what any state i think has the responsibility and the important job of doing which is secure their elections. for instance, here in kentucky
our secretary of state michael adams along with republicans and democrats put together an election law bill that makes it easier to vote and harder to cheat. that's all that they're trying to do in georgia. so again, when you have these caustic and hyperbolic terms that cast everything in racism, it does nothing for continuing a fruitful and productive conversation about the big issues in our country. and when i see those sorts of things it's disheartening. but all i can say is that in kentucky we struck the right balance between allowing people to vote, but making it harder to cheat at the same time. i think that's a model that needs to be taken across the country. i think georgia tried to do that. it's unfortunate that some folks allowed this narrative to sink in as relates to racism in the georgia law. maria: yes, it is. let me get your take on the impact of all of these poll is . you are leading a lawsuit to
stop the administration from enforcing a mandate in the american rescue plan act which will prevent your state, prevent you and others from cutting taxes. tell me what your argument is. >> well, our argument is quite simple in the sense that the federal government and the treasury department in particular can not tell a state what to do in terms of their tax and spend policies but that's exactly what they tried to do with this most recent version of covid relief spending. and so what i've done along with my colleague, herb slatery from tennessee is sued in federal court to say kentucky has a right to determine its own tax and spend policies, you cannot take away he covid funding based on what we intend to do with our tax and spend policies. for instance, we've got a project that we're working on in a minority district here in kentucky that changes some of the tax policies for that minority district. if what the treasury department
and biden administration have done is to take away money based on tax and spend changes we made in kentucky, that will hurt that minority district. it's unfair. we're going to stand up to those sorts of intrusions and that federal overreach into the commonwealth of kentucky. maria: it's taking away the ability to govern the way you want to govern. you have a plan in place in terms of the taxes and that removes it if you have that mandate. >> yes, ma'am, that's precisely right. it blows up the concept of federalism and state sovereignty that i think all of us across the country appreciate and respect. maria: then there's the xl pipeline, sir. tell me the impact on kentucky, given that joe biden came in and blew off law and canceled the l pipeline, -- xl pipeline, killing jobs as he did so. >> as a republican ag and i know my republican attorneys general across the country agree with this, we have a
responsibility to make sure we defend the rule of law, that we're the last line of defense as relates to the rule of law. we're there to stand up for the working men and women of this country. the keystone pipeline and what the president's administration has done there is completely disregard process as he relates to revoking that permit. it's our job to stand up for the rule of law as relates to that revoking of the permit. on the other side, the flip side, as he relates to the working men and women in this country, the rescinding of that pipeline permit has destroyed countless jobs in this country and here in kentucky what has happened is that pipeline is obliterated. if it's taken away, it will increase transportation cost for agricultural commodities that we have here in kentucky. our farmers, our producers here cannot afford those increased transportation costs. so we're doing our part again to stand up for the rule of law but also to stand up for the working men and women of this country and in particular, the farmers
and he producers that we have here in the commonwealth had. it's important that as republican ags we stand up to any overreach by any administration, particularly this one, that has made it a priority to change the climate agenda of this country and to change the tax and spend policies of this country as well. so we're going to be doing our job over the next four years to stand up to these sorts of activities by the biden administration. maria: yeah, i mean, it's pretty extraordinary that we're spending so much money, $8 trillion thrown at this economy and yet we're cutting defense spending and the biden administration wants to use taxpayer dollars to promote critical race theory in schools. can you fight back on that? >> well, it is an awful notion in terms of critical race theory and the other things that are coming out as edicts of this administration and so we are going to continue to fight back on a whole host of challenges that have been presented by this administration but we're going to do it in a way like i said
earlier that is based on the law, that's not based on any sort of personal animus. our responsibility is to the constitution and defending the rights of working class men and women in kentucky and across the country. maria: we cannot thank you enough for your leadership. thank you, sir. we appreciate it. we'll be right back. into this chip i invested in invesco qqq a fund that invests in the innovators of the nasdaq 100 like you become an agent of innovation with invesco qqq that delicious scramble was microwaved? get outta here. everybody's a skeptic. wright brothers? more like, yeah right, brothers! get outta here! it's not crazy. it's a scramble. just crack an egg.
maria: welcome back. now the threat of big tech censorship on our fundamental liberties, last week project verita founder james o'keefe became the latest victim of cancel culture when twitter permanently suspended his account after he exposed hypocrisy an flawed at cnn. social media giants have been helping to drive the biden radical agenda by canceling anyone who doesn't agree with it. the founder of project veritas is here, james o'keefe. tell us what happened last week and what you're intending to do tomorrow. >> well, maria, we were banned from twitter. i was banned from twitter. twitter said i, quote, operated fake accounts. i never operated a fake account in my life so i sued twitter for defamation in new york. this comes off the heels of our win in new york state.
we got a motion to dismiss a landmark win in a libel lawsuit from project vertas working the new york times. the cnn network said they're trying to help paint biden in a certain way to hurt trump and get trump out of office, help black lives matter so the cnn videos were trending number two globally on twitter and in the third videotape released they yanked my twitter account down and said that i was, quote, operating fake accounts. they also banned project veritas a month earlier, saying they were violating people's rights. we're suing twitter for defamation and it's time to go on offense, time to use libel lawsuits to hold them accountable. maria: it's interesting, because you have on tape twitter saying that they wanted to get involved and affect an election. you also have that from google, right.
do you actually have people at google telling you on camera we allowed trump to win in 2016, we won't allow it again? >> yeah, that was an individual jen jenia from 2019 we recorded, an executive high up in google, talking about trump getting trump out of office, making those statements we used hidden cameras, we go undercover to expose these things, also talking about algorithmic unfairness which sounds like an orwelian term. the videos were doing the things that twitter was designed to do which is empower citizen journalists, i was quoting cnn's director, charlie chester, relaying to people what he told me, the right for me to relay what i heard and accurately quote him and they banned me from doing so and they manufactured a reason, i quote,
operated fake accounts. this is in a lawsuit we filed in new york state. for those who think i'm bluffing or the lawsuits don't matter, project veritas never lost a lawsuit in our corporate history because we don't settle. we fight all the way to a jury verdict. we have never lost. we have gotten past the motion to dismiss which is a terrible burden to meet in a defamation lawsuit against the new york times. a few plaintiffs in modern history have accomplished that. we want to depose jack dorsey under oath. we want to put the people through depositions and understand exactly what was going through their mind when they maliciously lied about me, saying i operate fake accounts. maria: well, we know that right before the election they banned the new york post from reporting on the hunter biden story which we all knew to be true and we watched them ban the new york post and the reporter on it. look, we have a statement from twitter, let me call for that right now so we can at least
show what they're saying in the face of all of this. because a twitter spokesperson said that we permanently suspended him for violating the twitter l rules on platform manipulation and spam as outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam. your thoughts on the twitter statement on the banning of you. you can't miss lead others, they say. they're sticking with their multiple accounts that you were operating. >> my response is that drew griffin from cnn consistent cona private resident on her lawn, didn't blur the number on the house and drew griffin at cnn still remains on twitter, jack dorsey, you banned project vertas for confronting someone in the street. you manufactured this reason, quote, operating fake accounts. there are people on twitter who
are impersonating me who still remain on twitter. under any standard, under your own standard, you have double standards. if there wasn't double standards, you would have no standards at awful i will depose you under oath. i will get past the motion to dismiss in this liable lawsuit against you and tomorrow i will sue cnn for defamation what of what was said on the air a month ago. cnn host said we spread this information, we were banned for that not even twitter alleges we were band for disinformation. people every day in this country, people are defamed and lied about constantly. they don't have the will, the money, the resources to fight back so veritas will be the tip of the spear. the new york times lawsuit is a big deal because facebook banned our voter fraud videos in minneapolis because the new york times said that i was deceptive and part of a disinformation campaign.
now a judge in new york state said the new york times was engaging in deception by reporting an opinion in a news article, and the implications of this for tech since facebook and twitter partner with cnn and the new york times, the implications are staggering. and it's very important, a lot of people start you suing these people for libel and you'll see that cnn lawsuit filed tomorrow. maria: well, you know, it's extraordinary because the democrats set the narrative and what has been the case is the media, the meme media anyway picks up the mantel and runs with it. we talked about this with steven miller on the program last week. do you think that government is more powerful or big tech is more powerful? it feels like big tech has become more powerful and dominant than anyone expected when section 230 was first put into the telecom act of 1996678. here's what steven miller said should be done.
listen to steven miller on section 230. >> we need to modernize regulations, to say that those social media entities are public utilities for general use and they cannot discriminate against americans based on their religion, based on their political views, based on what they believe. that is a fundamental reform that we should campaign on and the moment we have the chance, pass it into law. maria: james, justice clarence thomas really set the tone for big tech. he said it needs to be regulated like public utilities. you can't just exclude people from your services. you said you're suing cnn tomorrow? >> yes, yes i'm suing them for defamation and section 230 of the communications decency act, there's no legal theory in the united states to hold or sue twitter because of that exemption. this is a different issue, this is what twitter and cn nsaid
publicly about me. there are libel laws. they're difficult to win in a lawsuit but going back to new york times versus sullivan, 1964, i have to prove actual malice because i'm a public figure, that they knowingly lied about me and i will meet that burden. i don't know what the solution is for 230 per se but i think a lot of people need to unite here and understand just the fundamental principles here that i was quoting somebody and relaying what it was they told me and i was banned for that and twitter manufactured a reason. so section 230 may have protected twitter before. it will not protect them from me. you cannot have a reckless disregard for the truth and defame people and the peed ya gets away with it and i -- media gets away with it and i would consider twitter getting away with it in this case. i will sue them and we will win as we won every other lawsuit. we need to have distribution by proxy. go on telegram, follow me, download the clips and put them into your twitter.

fact i'm going to go riding this weekend. maria: welcome back. now a "sunday morning futures" exclusive, biden's woke state department with secretary of state antony blinken reacting to the derek chauvin guilty verdict in an internal staff memo, obtained exclusively by "sunday morning futures," he writes that the death of george floyd brought more urgency to a long overdue reckoning in the united states with systemic racism, police accountability and unequal treatment of black people in the community. he said let's lead by the power of our example.
if these talking points sound familiar, you are right. it is exactly what beijing's top diplomat told blinken at the u.s./china summit in alaska in month. listen to this. >> the challenges facing the united states in human rights are deep-seated. they did not just emerge over the past four years such as black lives matter. it did not come up only recently. so we do hope that for our two countries it's important that we manage our respective affairs well, instead of deflecting the blame on somebody else in this world. maria: yes, that is when we were schooled in alaska. joining me to react is ohio congressman mike turner, sits on the intel and armed services committees. good to see you. thanks for joining us. this is what our state department is working on right now. your reaction. >> this is a grave concern. in the same meeting in alaska
top chinese diplomats said they wanted america to stop promoting democracy around the world. they see democracy as a threat to the chinese communist party. and so any criticism that they can place upon america and our efforts to promote democracy, they see as advancing their goal. secretary of state blinkenen should be very concerned about chinese criticism of democracy because any time we play into their narrative, we weaken america and we strengthen them. maria: i totally agree. but congressman, let's face it. while the democrats and joe biden are race baiting, our enemies and adversaries are ramping up. this week, putin amassed 100,000 troops on ukraine's borders, threatens that anybody who crosses moscow's red line on territorial or other issues will regret their deeds. what's going on with russia right now? >> this is of grave concern. we had top generals and admirals on capitol hill last week sounding the alarm about what
china and russia are doing, modernizing military and nuclear weapons. they were sounding the alarm not just because they're concerned about what our adversaries are doing, over the next five years they could have capabilities that exceed those of the united states. but because they see growing opposition among the democrats and among the biden administration for funding the military, and for funding the modernization that will keep us safe and our allies safe. maria: so everybody's ramping up nuclear capabilities and what are we doing, we're cutting defense spending. let's take a short break. we have to get into that. i want to ask about the opportunity biden created for terrorists at our southern border. that's next. stay with us. is complicated. as your broker, i've solved it. that's great, carl. but we need something better. that's easily adjustable has no penalties or advisory fee. and we can monitor to see that we're on track. like schwab intelligent income. schwab! introducing schwab intelligent income.
that is a 70 era weapons system that i have to employ against 2030 level threats. maria: that was admiral richard. we are back with ohio congressman mike turner who sits on the house intel and armed services committees. congressman, the admiral testified in front of your committee, he's the head of the u.s. nuclear arsenal, warning you that for the first time in history the u.s. is facing two nuclear powers and we're not ready. >> correct. so maria, china's doubling their nuclear weapons, russia modernized nuclear weapons and is fielding new capabilities and we're looking at an aging stockpile and a congress that may be unwilling to do what needs to be done. he's sounding the alarm as we go forward with the budget process, that we fight for nuclear modernization to make certain we can deter our adversaries. maria: that's true, but if
you're not increasing defense spending when you consider inflation, you're actually cutting it. and that's what the wall street journal reported this past week. so in terms of readiness, jack keane has been on the program, says we're out-gunned when it comes to china and then you've got democrats led by elizabeth warren reintroducing a bill to block the u.s. from using nuclear we pons first. what's the lodge -- weapons first. what's the logic? >> there isn't that's for our security. the biden administration is proposing 16% increases everywhere else but in defense. elizabeth warren obviously wants to tie the hands of our generals so that they cannot defend against our adversaries. we need to make certain that america stays strong, that we build a strong military, that we rise to the occasion against the modernization of china and russia and we'll be able to keep our allies in the united states safe. maria: congressman, we're also pulling out of afghanistan by september. >> right. and this is certainly a tragedy.
i was talking to general petraeus. he was saying part of the concern we have is the ability to be able to continue our terrorism -- counter-tearism efforts there. maria: thank you so much for joining me had this morning, mike turner. that will do it for us. have a great sunday, everybody. i'll see you tomorrow on fox business. a fund that invests in the innovators of the nasdaq-100 like you become an agent of innovation with invesco qqq
♪♪ howard: what was striking about the conviction of derek chauvin is virtually no one in the media argued he was innocent in the murder of george floyd. we all saw the nine-and-a-half minute video. what was also striking was that democratic leaders insinuated chauvin was guilty before the verdict and warning of the consequences of a failure to convict. >> praying the verdict is the right verdict. it's overwhelming, in my view. howard: didn't exactly stir the
