All that right here, right now on “Futuros del domingo por la mañana.”

And first this morning: The battle over Texasnew election laws continues, con más que 50 state Democrats still holed up in Washington, CORRIENTE CONTINUA.

While their absence creates major problems back home, Senator Ted Cruz weighed in on the controversy today, when he joined us last Sunday.


SU. TED CRUZ (R-TX): This political stunt is going to fail. It is clear – – there is clear legal authority under the Texas Constitution to arrest legislators who flee the state trying to defeat a quorum.

The governor has rightly said he will call special session after special session.


CRUZ: These guys are going to come back to Texas. They will get arrested. They will get physically put on the floor of the legislature.

And I believe the legislature will do its job and pass commonsense election integrity laws.

BARTIROMO: Increíble.


BARTIROMO: Joining me right now is the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott.

Gobernador, good to see you.

Two House Democrats have returned to Texas at this point. They are back at work. When do you expect the rest to return home? And will you apprehend them if they don’t cooperate and do their jobs?

GOV. GREG ABBOTT (R-TX): Bien, primero, as you talk about, I think there’s a fraying of the Democrats in Washington, CORRIENTE CONTINUA., because they’re realizing they’re accomplishing absolutely nothing up there in Washington.

They were hoping to coax the Democrats in Washington, CORRIENTE CONTINUA., to change their position and to vote out H.R.1 or some other election integrity bill in Washington, CORRIENTE CONTINUA. And they have met with a stone wall with regard to that. And so they will have gone up there for their mission and done nothing, while all the sameat the same time spending Texas taxpayer money to pay for the special session, to pay for their salaries, to pay for the salaries of their staff, etcétera.

Pero también, al mismo tiempo, the Democrats who did remain in the state of Texas, they were able to work on a bill in the Texas Senate that did accommodate some of the requests by the Democrats. Y entonces, as opposed to trying to negotiate with people in Washington, CORRIENTE CONTINUA., these members of the Texas House of Representatives, who were elected to hammer out details of bills in the state of Texas, they need to get back to the Texas Capitol to do their job.

With regard to arresting them, escuchar, this is a protocol that is established by the Texas Constitution that empowers the House of Representatives to put a call on the House that will send out Texas Department of Public Safety troopers to escort them to the Texas House chamber, where they will be kept in the Texas House chamber, subject only to a permission slip by the speaker of the House, to make sure that they stay there and get the job done.

BARTIROMO: Gobernador, this is partly because of misinformation about the voting bill in Texas and the 14 o 16 states that have come up with their new voting laws and approach to voting after trying to clean up what they saw to be irregularities in 2020.

Asi que, let’s go through the Texas voting bill, si tú pudieras, por favor, so that people can understand the facts here. You are looking to increase hours to vote during early voting, give people time off from work to vote during early voting, create uniform voting laws for the entire state, preventing rogue counties from creating their own rules, which certainly happened in 2020.

You want to ban drive-through and 24 voting and prevent voter fraud in mail-in ballots and applications.

There is some speculation now that the Democrats are going to create more of a lockdown going into the 2022 Senate and congressional races, so that the mail-in ballot situation can be the standard once again. Tell me about that and the ability to use your I.D. to vote.

ABBOTT: So the word you chose to say that what they were saying about it was a misrepresentation is pretty much the nicest thing that you can say.

The fact of the matter, Maria, is they’re just flat-out lying about what’s going on, and that lie has been perpetuated by the mainstream media. The fact of the matter is, as you kind of pointed out, what Texas is doing, we’re actually adding hours to vote, not subtracting hours to vote.

And if you look at allfor two weeks, or for 12 dias, there are early voting with early voting hours. Compare that to Biden’s home state that has exactly zero early voting hours. If there’s any state engaged in voter suppression, it would be the state of Delaware, not the state of Texas.

Asi que, en Texas, we truly have made it easier to vote and harder to cheat. The one thing that you pointed out that we are cracking down on is mail-in ballots. But a judge appointed by Barack Obama in the state of Texas said that, as it concerns mail-in ballots, ahora, there is an abundance of voter fraud with mail-in ballots.

Some of the Democrats who are in Washington, CORRIENTE CONTINUA., as we speak right now have said from the floor of the Texas House of Representatives that mail-in ballot is one of the easiest way to engage in fraud.

So Republicans and Democrats have both been clear on the record that mail- in ballots is a way that cheating does take place. We all have to agree that, if there’s cheating in the election process, we need to stop that cheating. And the best way to stop that cheating is to tighten up restrictions concerning mail-in ballots.

BARTIROMO: Pero, Gobernador, this misrepresentation, this lying, bold-faced lying, is starting at the top.

It is President Biden who keeps coming out calling all of these laws Jim Crow laws. Should the president come out and show some honesty on all of these voting bills, rather than trying to push the Democrat party H.R.1 bill through, cuales, por supuesto, tries to do the opposite, no I.D. and making mail-in ballots the standard?

ABBOTT: Asi que, this is the same president who called me a Neanderthal. Now he’s invoking Jim Crow two.

And I got to tell you what. That’s diminishing to the people in the United States of America who did have to suffer through Jim Crow. Anybody who says this is a Jim Crow law, they don’t either know Jim Crow laws or they don’t know what’s going on in the state of Texas, because there is no segregation. There is no attempt to make it harder on people of color.

Y, De hecho, Texas passed a voter I.D. law a few years ago, and ever sinceand they said the same thing: Oh, this is voter suppression. It will deny people of color the ability to vote.

Ever since we passed that law, there’s been more people vote than ever before, including people of color. It is easier today than it’s ever been for people of color and for all Texans to be able to cast a vote.

And so these aspersions that are being cast by the president of the United States are completely reprehensible. And it shows the American people that the president of the United States is willing to lie about what’s going on to try to get his way. And that’s one reason why you’re seeing President Biden’s polling numbers continue to plummet.

BARTIROMO: sí, what an extraordinary state of affairs. You hit it right on the nose.

mientras tanto, these Democrats who are avoiding doing their job are testing positive for COVID. We see that COVID numbers are up at the border, illegals bring in not just human trafficking and narcotics, illicit narcotics killing Americans, but also COVID.

We have got a report here that says COVID cases are up 900 percent in the month of June year over year. Give me an assessment of where we are with these dangerously wide open borders. You say you’re going to be arresting illegal trespassers. Have you done so?

ABBOTT: yo tengo.

En primer lugar, I will tell you that, escuchar, this is theone of the most rare reprehensible actions by the Biden administration. Primero, if you recall, under the Trump administration, they pretty much had cross-border illegal immigration shut down.

All that Biden had to do was to continue the Trump policies, and we would have no problem on the border whatsoever. But now it’s getting worse because Biden is opening the floodgates for people who are coming from countries where there’s an extremely low vaccination rate, and there’s an extremely high number of people coming across the border who do have COVID.

Pero, segundo, so what Texas is doing, we’re not playing games anymore. I have deployed the National Guard, as well as the Texas Department of Public Safety. And we have a new program in place, because the Biden administration plan is to catch and release.

The Texas plan is to catch and to jail. So we are arresting and jailing. The program has already begun. It took a few weeks to set up, because we actually had to set up an entire new booking system. And we had to get judges involved in the process, magistrates towho would magistrate these people.

We had to open up a former prison that has now 1,000 jail beds that we’re starting to fill up. We are arresting people every single day, and we’re arresting for trespass. When you come across the river, you’re typically coming into private property or county property or state property. You are trespassing.

And because I declared it an emergency, the punishment for the crime has been doubled. So it’s either a Class B or Class A misdemeanor that can put them in jail for a half-a-year or a year. And our goal is to continue to arrest people coming across the border, pero, al mismo tiempo, surge more National Guard, more Texas Department of Public Safety officers to make sure that we’re doing everything that we can as a state to secure the border.

BARTIROMO: Bien, it’s an incredible situation, and incredible to me that this administration refuses to see this realistically.

It’s not just illegals coming into our country, more than a million so far. We’re looking at potentially two million people apprehended in 2021, if, De hecho, these numbers keep up at this pace. And you have got the fentanyl, 93,000 overdoses in America in the last year. We know that fentanyl comes over the border. And it is made in Mexico.

You have got the criminal cartels of Mexico and the criminal cartels of China working together to get these illicit narcotics into our country. What is the impact?

I haven’t even spoken about the got-aways, Gobernador. What can you tell us about the number of people that yourthat your enforcement sees on surveillance video? They come into the country. They don’t want to get apprehended. And they go where? To Tucson? Where?

ABBOTT: Asi que, let me

BARTIROMO: I know that Tucson is one of the havens.

ABBOTT: So you mentioned two topics. I will address them both.

One is what’s going on with fentanyl. Understand this. Y eso es, fentanyl is one of the most deadly drugs that exists. It’s almost 100 times more potent than morphine, casi 50 times more potent than heroin. And it’s laced onto other drugs like ecstasy, Valium, Xanax, and other things that people are taking. And people are losing their lives.

There was a tragic story in Austin, Texas, about a young man who lost his life because he bought a pill off the street that was laced with fentanyl, and he died. This is happening over and over again.

But here’s the important mathematical fact, Maria. Y eso es, when you put all law enforcement agencies together, they have seized more fentanyl to kill, to kill every man, woman and child in the United States of America. All it takes is two milligrams for it to be a lethal dose.


ABBOTT: Y, una vez más, the Biden administration is doing nothing to stop this.


ABBOTT: And so Texas once again is stepping up. And we are going after the cartels, seizing this.

There was a video that was on FOX News just yesterday about how Texas DPS officers are tracking down these people coming across the border. And it was showing they were dealing with the drug cartels themselves. And so there’sthese aren’t unaccompanied minors coming across the border. This has been an escalation of the drug cartels coming across the border.

Asi que, Texas is engaged in a massive law enforcement effort to crack down on some of the most dangerous criminals in the United States.


Gobernador, thanks very much for your leadership on this. You stand tall in the face of really this breaking of laws and ignorance as it relates to the impact here.

Thanks very much for being here this morning, Governor Greg Abbott in Texas. Gracias, señor.

ABBOTT: Gracias, Maria.

BARTIROMO: Quick break, and then coming up, exclusive reporting from Peter Schweizer on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Why was he telling the Secret Service not to follow him to and around China?

Senator Ron Johnson joins us, as Tony Podesta takes on a lobbying gig for none other than the CCP jewel Huaweiright after this.



REPS. NANCY PELOSI (Como D): It is important for us to, otra vez, have them pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill. As I said earlier, we don’t know when. It’s the Senate schedule. But it seems to be imminent, and I hope that it will succeed.

While we are eager for it to pass, we will not be taking it up until the Senate passes the reconciliation bill.


BARTIROMO: Bien, ahi tienes.

That was Speaker Pelosi threatening to kill any infrastructure agreement unless her pie-in-the-sky tax-and-spending plan moves through budget reconciliation, a bit of a shakedown under way, even as she and colleagues peg the cost of that plan at $ 3.5 trillón, cuando, De hecho, the package will cost in excess of $ 5.5 trillón, according to the Committee For a Responsible Budget.

Joining me right now to take us behind all of these negotiations is Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson. He sits on the Senate Budget, Homeland Relations and ForeignForeign Affairs committees.

Senador, good to see you this morning. Thanks very much for being here.

You have said you will vote no on both of these plans. Tell us why.

SU. RON JOHNSON (R-WI): Good morning, Maria.

Bien, I — it was interesting. When you started that clip from Nancy Pelosi, I thought it was going to be the one where she said you had to pass Obamacare to figure out what’s in it. Y, por supuesto, Chuck Schumer tried to do the same thing last week. He actually tried to proceed to a bill that wasn’t negotiated.

There was nothere’s no legislation whatsoever. Y, todavía, they wanted us to vote to proceed to that particular bill. The fact of matter is, Maria, we’re over 20.5 — $ 28.5 trillion in debt.

Los demócratas, on a completely partisan basis, just passed about a $ 1.9 trillion supposedly COVID relief package; $ 700 billion of that isn’t even spent until 2022 a través de 2028. And so we’re mortgaging our kids’ futuro. We can’t continue to deficit-spend, the way Democrats want to do so.

Asi que, one of the things I have been talking about is the fact that you have that $ 700 billion ofit’s not COVID relief. Su — it’s new entitlement programs, further mortgaging our kids’ futuro. Why don’t we repurpose that amount of money and spend that on infrastructure?

Because we do need to upgrade our infrastructure. Everybody agrees on that. But we shouldn’t be doing it with more borrowing, more deficit spending.

BARTIROMO: sí. They have got real gimmicks here to make it look like it’s $ 3.5 trillón, but Maya MacGuineas tells me it’s actually $ 5.5 trillón.

The Committee For a Responsible Budget writes: “In order to fit these proposals within a $ 3.5 trillion budget target, lawmakers intend to have some policies expire before the end of the 10-year budget window, using this criticized budget gimmick to hidegimmick to high the actual cost.

How much does this plan actually cost, $ 3.5 trillion or $ 3.5 trillón?

JOHNSON: My guess is at least $ 5.5 trillón. And that’s just a 10-year budget window. If you actually do the net present value, in terms of what’s the long-term costs, it’s far higher.

Y, por supuesto, what they’re doing is, they’re creating new entitlement programs. They did that with the COVID relief bill. They’re going to be doing it with this reconciliation package, this reckless tax-and-spend spending spree.

So what they will do is, they will put increate a new entitlement program. They’re going to say it’s going to run out in two years or three years, whatever it takes to get a score within that $ 3.5 trillion mind- numbing figure. quiero decir, that’s how out of control this is, es, I guess they have determined that the American public simply won’t tolerate more than $ 3.5 trillón.

But they will they will fit the scoring of this thing to that $ 3.5 trillón, recognizing the fact that these programs, once implemented, they will never go away. Asi que, that’s why Maya MacGuineas comes up with about $ 5 billones de 5.5 trillón. But I would argue that even understates it.

Asi que, my final point is, I don’t know why any Republican would cooperate with them in passing this reckless spend-and-tax spree, because what they’re doing by pulling out the infrastructure, the thing that everybody agrees on, that’s going to create a $ 500 mil millones, $ 600 mil millones, $ 700 billion hole that Democrats will fill


JOHNSON: … with more entitlement spending. I don’t know why any Republican would cooperate with that.

BARTIROMO: Asi que, real quick, people want to know, are they going to be able to push through the sky-high spending levels, as well as much higher taxes? They want to take capital gains all the way up to 43.4 por ciento.

Will they be able to get it through?

JOHNSON: Si 50 Democrats vote for it, they will be able to do that, sí. Esa es — that’s budget reconciliation.

BARTIROMO: Está bien.

We’re waiting on Joe Manchin for more commentary on this. Will he hold the line?

We’re going to take a break. Then I want to get your reaction to President Biden saying once again China thinks it’s going to surpass America this century.

Quédate con nosotros.



JOE BIDEN, PRESIDENTE DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS: I talked to Xi, Xi Jinping in China, who I know well. We don’t agree on a lot of things. He’s a bright and really tough guy.

He truly believes that the 21st century will be determined by oligarchs, por — no es una broma — democracies cannot function in the 21st century, el argumento es, because things are moving so rapidly, asi que, so rapidly, that you can’t pull together a nation that is divided to get a consensus on acting quickly.

Asi que, autocrats, autocracies.

I had a long meeting with Putin, and I continuedI know him well. These guys actually are bettingbettingI’m not jokingon autocracies.


BARTIROMO: Oh, they’re making bets all right.

We’re back with Senator Ron Johnson.

That was President Biden at a CNN town hall on Wednesday, kowtowing to China and Russia once again, saying that his buddies Xi Jinping and Putin believe that oligarchs and autocrats will dominate the 21st century.

Senador, my question is, what is he doing about it? How would you assess the U.S.-China policy?

JOHNSON: Bien, my first thought when he saidtalked about a divided nation, he should stop dividing this nation. And he’s done nothing to unify and heal this nation, as he said in his inaugural address.

The other thing we need to do is, we need a strong America. And you don’t strengthen America by weakening it with this massive debt and addition of the newest entitlements, more deficit spending. We actually have to concentrate on having a powerful military. And the Biden administration is doing anything they can to weaken the military.

No, we have massive, double-digit increases in every other aspect of the budget, but the increases in both defense and Department of Homeland Security, they’re de minimis. They won’t even keep up with inflation. Asi que, De hecho, we will actually be reducing the size of the military and DHS, from a standfrom a budgetary standpoint, according to Biden.


JOHNSON: And then you look at this weakness around the globe, crawling back the deal with Iran, what he’s doing in Afghanistan, quiero decir, the travesty that that’s going to create.

He’s just showing weakness globally. And our adversaries notice that and they will act on that.

BARTIROMO: There was a lot of news pertaining to China on Friday and over the weekend.

En primer lugar, la semana pasada, los Estados Unidos. dropped visa fraud cases against five Chinese researchers. I was just outraged by this. One of the researchers actually said: Oh, Si, I lied on my visamy visa application, and I was tasked by my supervisor to bring information back. They still dropped the charges.

China is also banning school curriculum, tutoring companies from going public. They’re banning foreign investment. They’re cracking down on Chinese companies and stocks.

mientras tanto, you have got a lot of deals under way still with Hunter Biden. You have done an investigation.

Here’s Peter Schweizer onMornings With Mariaon FOX Business with me this past week. Listen to what he said about Hunter Biden’s dealmaking as it relates to the Secret Service following him around. Mirar.


PETER SCHWEIZER, AUTHOR, “SECRET EMPIRES”: In the middle of 2014, he does something very unusual. He tells the Secret Service: I don’t want protection. I do not want Secret Service agents traveling with me.

And the Secret Service has confirmed that’s the case. What’s interesting, aunque, Maria is, when you look through the e-mails, there is still plenty of correspondents with the Secret Service as it relates to travel in Europe and domestically in the United States.

The one place that we know that he traveled multiple times, but does not communicate with the Secret Service is on trips to China.


BARTIROMO: So it’s very curious, Senador. He wants Secret Service following him around throughout Europe and the U.S., but not in China. He does want those meetings revealed.

JOHNSON: Bien, otra vez, that’s the $ 64,000 pregunta. What does China know about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s business dealings and that vast web of foreign financial entanglements within China?

It was Senator Grassley and I that requested those Secret Service records to find out when they did offer protection for about 5.5 years from 2009 a 2014. The day after a TIME magazine article was published talking about his involvement on Burisma, he supposedly ended the Secret Service protection.

But then Peter is right. Subsequent e-mails off of his computer showed that he was talking about Secret Service protection not only in 2015, but now we also know that the Secret Service intervened when his sister-in-law, who he was having an affair with, dumped his gun off in that dumpster, and the Secret Service went to try and get the background check information from the gun owner or the gun shop owner.

BARTIROMO: Increíble.

JOHNSON: Asi que, the Secret Service is not beingand so we have asked for – – requested for information on that, because they have no records of it.

Asi que, una vez más, we subpoenaed FBI Director Wray. He slow-walked our request. We basically didn’t get squat. Now Secret Service, they gave us the initial records. Past that point, they haven’t given us squat. What workers they have given are highly redacted.

So these agencies are covering for the Bidens. They have always been covering for them. Even though he supposedly ended Secret Service protection, they still apparently provided it as well, but off the books.

Who knows what’s happening? These agencies are not being forthright. They’re not being transparent. Y, bastante honestamente, Congress is losing its oversight capability.

I have sent two letters with five members of the Homeland Security Committee on it. There’s a law that says, when five members of the Homeland Security Committee request information, the agencies shall turn it over. CDC is not turning us over the records as it relates to the teachers union involvement with some of the CDC’s pronouncement.

Or they are also not turning over Anthony Fauci’s unredacted e-mails. So I’m calling on Senator Peters to use the committee to subpoena those records, because they’re not responding to our lawful requests, saying that they shall turn those records over to us.


JOHNSON: This is a huge problem, Maria.

BARTIROMO: sí, mientras tanto — por supuesto.

JOHNSON: The administration is just blowing off Congress.


mientras tanto, Tom Barrack, a former aide to President Trump, sat in jail for four nights last week, and then was served with the most expensive bond ever. They say he’s representing the UAE.

La semana pasada, Xi Jinping said that Hong Kong is going to likely replace New York as the CCP’s fund-raising venue of choice. President Biden puts a memo out and says it’s dangerous to do business in Hong Kong. That’s it, after they marched in there and threw freedom fighters in jail, like Jimmy Lai, who’s still in jail.

Senador, it’s good to see you. We certainly will keep a spotlight on this.

We’re going to come back after a short break and look at FOX News host Tucker Carlson and what went on. Why was he unmasked and spied on by the National Security Agency?

Quédate con nosotros.


BARTIROMO: Bienvenido de nuevo.

Bien, the Biden agenda hasreaches his six month in office.

There is record inflation. Crime is skyrocketing from coast to coast. And we are witnessing perhaps the worst border crisis in U.S. historia, all while our enemies in China, Russia and Iran are gaining greatly, oil prices doubling, sanctions down.

The 46th president took on these issues and more last Wednesday night during a CNN town hall with Don Lemon. Here’s a sampling.


BIDEN: Think of the people.

If your kid wanted to find out whether or not there werethere’s a man on the moon or whatever — alguna cosa, or whether those aliens are here or not.

I don’t care if you think I’m Satan reincarnated.


BIDEN: El hecho es, you can’t look at that television and say nothing happened on the 6th.

The question is whether or not we should be in a position where you arewhy can’t the experts say we know that this virus is, De hecho — it’s going to be — o — Perdóneme — we know why all the drugs approved are not temporarily approved, but permanently approved.


BARTIROMO: That was President Biden this week.

Joining me right now is Congressman Devin Nunes. He’s the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee.

Congresista, thanks for being here.


BARTIROMO: How is President Biden doing at the six-month mark? Assess the performance.

Monjas: Bien, you know it’s getting bad when the propaganda machine that the Democratic socialists control in this countrythey control 95 percent of the media so.

And then you take the big tech oligarchs that control and censor what we receive via social media. When that poison gets togets to the average independent American, that propaganda, you know it’s bad when they can’t even find a 15- or 30-second sound bite out of a full hour town hall that they can plug into their own propaganda machine.

quiero decir, it’s getting really bad. It’s not just the president. They can’t get any sound bites from the vice president either. They’re almost to the point, Maria, where they’re going to have to start using computer-generated graphics in order to give to the propaganda machine, because they can’t get good clips to sell what they’re trying to sell here in Washington, cual es — which are policies that are running the country into the ground.


Bien, the foreign policy certainly has empowered some of our adversaries, oil prices having doubled, enriching Vladimir Putin and the Iranians, China as well.

I mentioned earlier that, earlier in July, Biden’s DHS threw out Trump’s crackdown on several researchers from China. They overturned the foreign visa investigation, no charges there.

Your thoughts on what’s taking place in China and how the U.S. is reacting, big story in terms of the crackdown coming from the CCP?

Monjas: Bien, I defined, creo, on your show a few months ago to describeyou asked, creo, to describe the Biden foreign policy, and I described it as speak really, really loud, but carry a twig.

Asi que, recuerda, earlier in this week, we had an example where the United States with our allies went out and said very loudly that the Chinese Communist Party was engaged in cyber intrusions and cyberattacks. And they said, Oh, chicos malos.

Bien, mientras tanto, luego, a few days later, out of nowhere, these Chinese spies somehow that were supposed to be prosecuted are released and they drop the charges. Asi que, how is that working? What’s happening here?

Y entonces, Mira, I think an issue that people are not paying attention to, the left in this country, they run around with their propaganda saying, Oh, we really care about democracy and human rights.

Bien, just last week, you had Xi Jinping, the Chinese dictator, on the border with India, en el Tíbet, claiming victory. This was the first time in 30 años, I believe, that a Chinese dictator had been to Tibet, and also threatening India, over a billion people, also a nuclear power


Monjas: … threatening in India that he’s going to build a big water project to possibly cut off water to India.

Asi que, no matter what you plug into the propaganda machine, you can build all the narratives you want here in Washington, CORRIENTE CONTINUA., but then there’s reality. And the reality is, is that the Chinese are on the march, and the Biden administration is letting them do whatever they want.

They make a big deal about it, they put it in the propaganda, they speak really loud, and then they do absolutely nothing.

BARTIROMO: mientras tanto, you have got Tony Podesta now taking on a new gig, going to be representing Huawei.

The Trump administration told us that Huawei is a national security risk. What is going to come out of this? Tony Podesta gets to represent one of our adversarial companies, Huawei, who’s been stealing intellectual property for decades from American companies. But Hunter Biden is OK to sell art.


Monjas: sí.

Bien, maybe the Chinese will come in and buy the art. Maybe that’s why they don’t want someone to know who’s actuallywho’s actually buying the art.

And don’t forget, in that same region, tenemos — I look at it this way. I was taught that the U.S. militar, they’re supposed to do three basic things, derecho, win wars, provide deterrence, and not get involved in politics.

Bien, what’s happening here? we have Al Qaeda growing in Afghanistan. mientras tanto, I think it’s going to be very difficult for us to even control our embassy in Kabul. Asi que — and I’m not saying that we need to stay in Afghanistan forever, but the military ought to be focusing on, what happened?


Monjas: Why are we not winning that war? Why is Al Qaeda on the march?

en segundo lugar, deterrence. You have got the Chinese doing cyber intrusions, claiming victory in Tibet, etcétera, etcétera.


Monjas: Y entonces, mientras tanto, not getting involved in politics. You have got the chairman of the Joint Chiefs get involved in critical race theory. And then you have the General Nakasone, in charge of the NSA, who’swho purged Republicans from the top ranks of the nation’s signal intelligence agency.

BARTIROMO: Bien, Así es. And that happened on January 20 on Inauguration Day.

So we understand that, while all of these things are going on, what is the NSA doing? They’re unmasking and spying on Tucker Carlson, a FOX News host.

Here’s Tucker fromMornings With Mariaa week ago. Mirar.


TUCKER CARLSON, ANCLA DE NOTICIAS DE FOX: Ayer, I learned thatand this is going to come out soonthat the NSA leaked the contents of my e-mail to journalists in an effort to discredit me.

I know because I got a call from one of them, diciendo, Oh, this is what your e-mail was about.

So it is not in any way a figment of my imagination. It’s confirmed. Es cierto. They’re not allowed to spy on American citizens. Ellos son. creo, more ominously, they’re using the information they gather to put leverage and to threaten opposition journalists, people who criticize the Biden administration.

It’s happening to me right now. And I think it’s shocking, and I don’t think we should put up with it in a free country.


BARTIROMO: Congresista, FOX News put out a statement about this, diciendo: “For the NSA to unmask Tucker Carlson or any journalist attempting to secure a newsworthy interview is entirely unacceptable, and raises serious questions about their activities, as well as their original denial, which was widely misleading.

I know that you have been tasked with investigating this. I know you can’t tell us much on that investigation at this point. What can you say about what we are learning at the NSA?

Monjas: Bien, if you go back, the Obama administration, which essentially the Biden administration is an extension of the Obama administrationI have said for a long time that Biden and Harris are just an avatar for Obama.

Y, De hecho, these aren’t my words, Maria. Obama himself admitted that 90 percent of his people are there in the White House to carry out and be Obama’s third term.

Asi que, you go back. During that time frame, there was unmasking that was occurring. They were being leaked to the mainstream media back during the Iran nuclear deal. We know all the maskings that occurred of Trump transition officials. We made that well known at the time.

Changes were supposed to be made in our intelligence agencies on unmaskings. Asi que, Mira, we don’t know what’s happening over at the NSA. We clearly do not trust General Nakasone, who’s under investigation by our committee on multiple fronts, quiero decir, Más importante, that he politicized the agency by firing Republicans or putting them under phony investigations, and then basically forcing them to resign.

And now you have the situation with unmasking of American journalists. We’re investigating that. I don’t have really anything at this point that I can say.


Monjas: But I can just tell you we’rethe House Republicans are running a real investigation.


Bien, we have got politicization at the NSA and politicization at the FBI, politicization at the IRS. Congresista, we’re counting it all.

It’s good to get your insights, como siempre, Congressman Devin Nunes.

Quédate con nosotros.

The Silicon Valley executive who wants to help the GOP take the Senate back in 2022, he’s next.



SU. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): The reconciliation package is not infrastructure. It’s big government, a liberal wish list, paid family leave, all kinds of new social programs unrelated to infrastructure. Asi que, we will see if they can get Democratic support.

But before Republicans beat up on the Democrats in Texas for leaving Texas too much, if, por alguna razón, they pass reconciliation, budget resolution, to bring that bill to the floor of the United States Senate, la $ 3.5 billón de billones, you got to have a quorum to pass a bill in the Senate.

I would leave before I would let that happen.


BARTIROMO: He would leave.

That was Senator Lindsey Graham on this program last weekend threatening to skip to ensure Democrats’ $ 5.5 trillion budget resolution doesn’t get through the reconciliation, which includes the pie-in-the-sky special interest spending that we cannot afford, con un 50/50 split in the Senate, with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tiebreaking vote.

My next guest hopes to break the logjam. He is joining us right now.

Joining me right now is Blake Masters. He is running for the Senate seat in Arizona. And he is the CEO of Thiel Capital. He recently launched that Senate campaign in Arizona.

And it is good to see you. Thanks very much for being here.

Blake, what’s at stake?


Everything is it stake here in this 2022 y 2024 elección. I really think, if Republicans don’t win these elections, we lose the country forever, because if you look around, the left and the Democrats, they have taken control of almost every major institution in our country.

And they’re very close to controlling it all. Y entonces, if they win, they tell us what they’re going to do. They’re going to pass H.R.1, S.1. They’re going to federalize elections, so no Republican can ever win again. They want to add new states to our union, just so they can add more senators and control everything.

So I really think the future of this country hangs in the balance. That’s what’s at stake in 2022.


Speaking of elections, I’m going to ask you about the audit going on in Arizona, as well as your plan to rein in big tech monopolies.

Let’s take a break and come back with that.

We are talking with Blake Masters. We will be right back.


BARTIROMO: We’re back with Blake Masters. He’s the chief operating officer of Thiel Capital. He is running for the U.S. Senate seat in Arizona.

Y, Blake, thanks very much for walking us through your platform.

Before you tell us about your platform, tell me about the audit going on in Arizona right now. Do you have any info? When will we find out what’s taking place there?

MASTERS: Bien, I’m not sure when we will actually hear the results.

I will just say I’m glad we’re auditing. I come from the business world. We audit businesses every year, all the time, as a routine good practice. And that’s when we don’t even suspect anything is amiss.

And so this idea that so many people from the journalist class, from the Democratic establishment, even from the Republican establishment in Arizona, they’re reflexively anti-audit. They were anti-audit before it even got started, which makes no sense, porque, like tens of millions of Americans, probably even 100 million Americans and some Joe Biden voters, if we’re being honest, I look at what happened in the 2020 elección, and I see a lot of problems.

They want to say it was a perfect election with the perfect result. Quizás. But it didn’t look perfect, with the mass mailings of ballots. My campaign manager received four ballots in different states. Me gusta, things were obviously pretty messed up.

And so maybe the result was right, maybe not. But I think we ought to run a good process and figure out just what happened, so that we can make sure elections are secure in the future.

BARTIROMO: That’s unbelievable that your campaign manager received four ballots. quiero decir, this is the whole issue around mail-in ballots. You don’t know if, De hecho, it opens the door to fraud. You had ballots coming from empty parking lots, etcétera.

Your main platform, aunque, is immigration. Tell me about that. How are you going to clean up these wide open borders?

MASTERS: Bien, we have to remember, illegal immigration is illegal.

All you have to do is enforce the law. It starts there. And in the last 180 days in the Biden/Harris administration, we have seen just how bad things can get when you stop doing that.

I don’t want to pretend everything was perfect at the border in December of 2020, but President Trump had it under control. It was operationally stable. And so you get Biden in office, and he invites people to come here. Él dice, comecome on in. You can stay. We will put you up in a hotel room.

Y entonces, por supuesto, people flood the zone. And everybody being trafficked, the hundreds of thousands of people, they’re all trafficked. They’re all trafficked by cartels. The women are raped. The children are abused. This is a huge disaster.

And so we have to get serious. We have to put Trump’s policies back in place. We have to finish the wall, that people come through these little narrow gaps in the wall that the administration currently in power refuses to finish. It’s commonsensical stuff. We just need the will to enforce the law.


quiero decir, Mira, you come from a technology background. When you come back, we have got to talk about big tech dominance, President Trump suing big tech. That is for another day.

Blake, it’s great to have you this morning. Muchas gracias. We will be watching your campaign.

Blake Masters, gracias.

That will do it for us on “Futuros del domingo por la mañana” hoy. Gracias por estar aqui. I’m Maria Bartiromo.

Watch us again today at 3:00 pm. Eastern right here on FOX News.

Have a good rest of the weekend.
