Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley has been under fire after allegations included in the new unreleased book "Peril" co-authored by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. The authors say Gen. Milley made two secret phone calls to his Chinese counterpart behind then-President Trump's back, because of fears the former President might start a war with China. Many critics, including former President Trump and the GOP are calling for Milley to resign, saying what he did was "treasonous."

Earlier this week, Arizona became the first state to file a lawsuit against the Biden administration over the President's latest vaccine mandates for federal workers and large companies. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich argues that President Biden's new vaccine requirements are unconstitutional and violate the Equal Protection Clause. Brnovich points out that illegal immigrants who enter the U.S. are not subject to the same federal vaccine requirements as American citizens. Brnovich joins to break down his state's lawsuit, why he says it violates the U.S. constitution and why he believes we can't have a serious conversation about COVID-19 until we start talking about what's going on at the southern border. On Tuesday, September 14th, the Department of Justice filed an emergency order asking a federal judge in Texas for a temporary halt on the new Texas law banning abortions past six weeks of pregnancy. While President Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland expressed their belief the law is unconstitutional and in direct conflict with Roe v. Wade, Texas Governor Greg Abbott's press secretary asserted Abbott signed this law to protect "the most precious freedom...life itself." Law Professor at George Washington University and Fox News Contributor, Jonathan Turley joins to explain that while pundits are focused on the Texas law, the Supreme Court is set to hear a case on a Mississippi abortion law that could seriously weaken Roe v. Wade. Turley breaks down why Democrats' moves to codify Roe v. Wade could create issues of federal overreach, how Mississippi's law could enhance the authority of states in the pre-viability stage of abortion, and how the Supreme Court is likely to rule on this landmark case on states' rights in regard to abortion. Plus, commentary by former White House speechwriter and FOX News contributor Marc Thiessen.
An investigation has been completed into why hundreds of entries on data pertaining to genetic sequencing acquired from early cases of COVID-19 patients were deleted from the National Institutes of Health online database at the request of Wuhan Lab scientists.

Senators are back in Washington D.C. this week after their summer recess and they have a lot to get done. On the top of that list, Democratic Senators hope to pass the $3.5-trillion budget reconciliation package. While getting the $3.5-trillion bill passed would be a win for the White House following the weeks of backlash from the Afghanistan withdrawal, not all Democrats are on board. Moderate Democrat Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) have already said they do not support the $3.5-trillion package. Sen. Manchin says it's too high and raised concerns of how it would impact inflation and debt. So if the Senate Democrats can't get the spending bill passed what happens to the bipartisan $1-trillion infrastructure bill? FOX News Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram joins to break down what's in the bill, how Democrats are hoping to "stuff" immigration reform into the budget reconciliation, the chances of it passing and where the debt ceiling stands in all of this. As the U.S. continues to investigate the origins of COVID-19, definitive results are still inconclusive as China refuses the World Health Organization's plan to further study the source of the virus. Scientists continue to disagree whether SARS-CoV-2 came from zoonotic transmission, with the virus jumping from animal to humans, or from a leak in a virology lab in Wuhan. World Health Organization Advisor and Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, Jamie Metzl who has been called the first whistleblower on COVID-19 joins to discuss why the evidence supports that the virus may have been the result of a lab leak in Wuhan, how many scientists who disparaged the theory have some links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and why he believes there is need for an international coalition to demand a fair investigation from China. Plus, commentary by syndicated columnist and author of "America's Expiration Date," Cal Thomas.

On September 14th, 2001 Congress passed an Authorization for the Use of Military Force, allowing the Armed Forces to strike back against those responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks and deter and prevent acts of international terrorism against the United States. That AUMF has been used by every President since. But with the War in Afghanistan over and no remaining troops on the ground, it may be time to re-think the broad power given to the commander in chief. Indiana Republican Senator Todd Young discusses the future of these military authorizations twenty years later. The 2021 California Gubernatorial Recall Election takes place Tuesday, September 14th, and President Biden is campaigning with Governor Gavin Newsom in an attempt to keep him from being removed from office.

Texas has passed what is being considered one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation, banning abortions after six weeks into pregnancy which health care providers have estimated could affect around 85 percent of the abortions carried out in the state of Texas. Before midnight on Wednesday, September 1st, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to refuse to block this law. Associate Editor at The Wall Street Journal John Bussey joins to break down exactly what this bill does, why the Supreme Court refused to block the law but did not rule on its constitutionality, and how this law deputizes private citizens to enforce the law via lawsuits against anyone who aids and abets an abortion.

Earlier this week, host Alex Hogan spoke to Congressman Peter Meijer of Michigan who is also a U.S. veteran, to discuss why he made the covert expedition to Afghanistan amid the evacuation, the realities he saw on the ground in Kabul that differed from the information being provided by the Biden administration and the unfortunate situation America found itself in being forced to collaborate with the Taliban to save U.S. lives.

America is approaching the 20th anniversary of 9/11, one of the darkest days in U.S. history. While the story has been told and retold each September 11th, there are always new perspectives to observe and learn from regarding this tragic day. Bill Hemmer joins to discuss his new Fox Nation special airing Sunday, September 5th called “The Lost Calls of 9/11.” Following the events of that day, a man in Houston, Texas purchased used computer equipment and when he took the machine home and plugged it in he was shocked to discover it contained 103 never-heard-before calls from a trading room floor just across the street from the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11th. Bill explains how the calls tell a story of Americans seeing an attack unfold before their eyes and the emotional calls of men and women calling their families and loved ones and how the withdrawal from Afghanistan sets the stage for terror to potentially return to that same region where Al-Qaeda hatched the 9/11 terror attack. A new Texas abortion law restricting the procedure six weeks after pregnancy has thrown the issue back into the national spotlight following the Supreme Court ruling to allow the ban to continue. The vote was 5-4. President Biden and many prominent Democrats have already spoken out against both the Texas law and the Supreme Court ruling, however, the five conservative judges who rejected the attempt to block this controversial law explained in their opinion that this decision is not an indication of whether the law itself is unconstitutional or not. The future of this Texas abortion ban is unclear as the Supreme Court will hear a Mississippi abortion case which will be the first abortion case considered by the High Court since Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed. Host of Fox News Sunday Chris Wallace joins to discuss the details of the Texas abortion law and why the Supreme Court awaits the Mississippi case to make a significant decision on abortion rights. Later, Chris discusses the heavy political price President Biden can expect to pay for the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan and how it relates to his new book coming out September 7th, Countdown bin Laden, in which he details the thrilling 247-day manhunt to bring to justice the man responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Plus, commentary by former Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland.
