6:01 am
to be happy that we won iowa! hkt over who is more progressive. listen to sanders answer a question about whether he sees clinton as a progressive.
6:02 am
>> he has great pause to be a -- she has big pause to be a progressive when you become dependent on her super pac and other ways on wall street. >> clinton fired back on twitter tweeting a 40-year-old record of progressive results boiled down to some days. we'll take it up with ed rollins and conserve union, and conservative taylor tonight the florida governor calling an emergency because of nine viruses and checking to see whether the obama administration
6:03 am
is doing anything at all to protect us. we're joined by fox news trirbt, ed rollins. you've seen more than a few of these. what do you think? >> trump is going to win in new hampshire, i'm sure of that. his poll numbers are big and bernie sanders will win there and a lot of campaigns other than the governors trying to find place, fourth or fifth place they can hang on. rubio and certainly cruz will move to south carolina. >> he hasn't complained half as loud as
6:04 am
donald trump. >> cnn made the announcement and the cruz campaign tweeted it out at 7:00. >> this campaign has gotten so ugly. >> can i interrupt? we talked about ugly campaigns. donald trump being supported by the stibment, it is ted cruz who is- >> all the bravado, it reminds me -- >> when wrestling was for real. >> that's the same persona. you and i were boxers.
6:05 am
when muhammad ali said he was the greatest, he went out and proved he was the greatest. at the the end of day, here's where it is. cruz got eight delegates and trump got seven and rub off. >> maybe but after what we wa h watched in iowa, you're talking about a huge turnout for republicans. >> i think people are very concerned about this election. very interested. one of the things about iowa and new hampshire, a lot of frustration and those people
6:06 am
participate. those people pay attention and go out on a cold night and watch a lot of rallies and they vote. at the end of the day, it's an important part of the system. >> you really don't detect a sustained anti-stibment? >> no. >> rubio proved that. >> i think they all basically are anti-stibment in what's going on in washington and a lot of frustration and concerned about the future for their kids and themselves. >> how crazy do you think this is after what this country has been through with a first term senator about whom no one knew anything, your two front-runners right now. two of the three in the republican party are first term senat senators. are you kidding me, folks? what is missing? >> we eliminated all the
6:07 am
governors with experience. governors are the guys that run mini -- >> i'm thinking scott walker and chris christie. >> governor perry, 14 year governor. they're wiped out before the first -- >> i predict the fun is only beg beginning, what do you think? >> i think you're absolutely right. >> ed rollins as always. >> six new travel related cases of the zika virus which brings the total number of cases in the state of florida to nine. florida's governor, rick scott declared a health emergency because of the mosquito borne virus. a prime breeding spot but already set up trying to control the potential spread of the virus. proactive pesticide sprays under way. residents encouraged to drain any water near their homes and
6:08 am
the cdc has not yet declared florida a risk but closely monitoring florida. we're coming back, we'll have much more, stay with us. >> after months of campaigning and a strong ground operation, trump has to admit he may have made a misstep in iowa. >> i think i would have done a little bit better in iowa had i not wanted to go out and do that event for the vets. >> the question now, can he turn occupant voters in new hampshire. republican strategist, kathy lynn taylor and others joins us next. ♪ ♪

making strong gains across the board during mr. obama's tenure. at the state level, democrats have lost 11 governorships since the 2008 election. republicans are now in charge of 31 states. at the federal level, democrats have lost 13 seats in the u.s.
6:26 am
senate! they've lost 69 house seats since the 2008 election that brought barack obama to the oval office. and lost control of the house and senate in the doing. this dramatic reversal, in my opinion is attributable to the president's leadership style and his authoritarian compulsions. this shift has much more energy and much more to reclaim. americans are in this election year already making clear the rejection of the establish and the status quo created by this president insisting now upon the return of government at every level to the people. we talked on occasion so-called wave elections. this one looks much bigger, a far larger wave, one driving the american revolution and will reshape our politics for decades to come.
6:27 am
our quotation of the evening, this one from thomas jefferson who said long ago the end of the democracy and the defeat of the american revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations. we can still prevent that. we're coming right back. stay with us. donald trump was second but they say he's a loser. marco rubio landed in third, they say he's a winner. what about cruz? we thought he won. the polls, they were wrong. ted rollins and michael good win to tell us all about it as we get ready for new hampshire. when you go the extra mile to help business owners save on commercial auto insurance, you tend to draw a following.

6:30 am
6:31 am
joining us tonight, former reagan political director, ed rollins, pulitz winning columnist, great to have you both here. where were we as we were asse assessing what was happening in iowa. the des moines and bloomberg register poll hadn't missed and screwed it up. >> they missed for this reason. they estimated 47% turnout was evangelical, turned out to be 62%. it was about a third went to cruz and plurality is all you need and that was the difference in this race.
6:32 am
>> surprisingly trump did pretty well with those vols b evangelid didn't do as well with first time voters moving with record numbers to the republican cau s caucuses and in stead bringing a lot of op decision -- lot of opposition to trump. >> that wasmy assumption, the turnout would be high due to the unique approach and first timers. he got a share but not a big enough share. i was surprised on both sides, those that had the biggest crowds during the runoff, sanders and trump, did not get the most votes the end of the night. >> there are two statistics i find fascinating. the first of these is that 60% of the republican caucus scorers in iowa voted for a minority candidate.
6:33 am
60%. think about that. not a single democratic vote went to a minority candidate in iowa. think about that. that tells you where we are. >> i think democrats can make up for it and vote for cruz or r rubio later in the process and feel guilty. the cruz operation had extraordinary get out the vote effort. they basically monitored not just the voters they thought they had, they monitored everything in that state. people that ran that state had run joni ernst campaign and knew where they were and confident the night before. trump spent no money on get out the vote. he spent about $12 million total. both rubio and cruz spent over $40 million. at the end of the day -- >> you're saying he was a cheapskate and it cost him because he didn't build a ground game and we've been talking about the importance of the ground game in iowa for months. >> that's exactly what i'm s
6:34 am
saying, not taking anything away from cruz or rubio. >> you're crediting them. >> trump had an arrogance he could be on the television sh shows, what have you. think about it, a guy has unlimited money. if he had spent another $10 million on get out the vote effort he would have probably been a winner. >> interesting to look at it that way. at the same time, up in milford, new hampshire, at that appearance, he's just acknowledged perhaps his choo choosing not to be in the fox news debate may have hurt him in iowa. but he would have done the same thing either way. your reaction. >> i believe the polls were changing in his favor until that debate and his skipping it. he had opened a 6 or 7 point lead over cruz in most of the polls at that point. he was doing better. he has been slightly behind.
6:35 am
the opening went to rubio and he sees that. the ground game went to rubio. >> and arguably all the negat e negatives in not appearing in that debate but the combination was not something he could overcome or did not. i said there were two statistics. the other in the number of votes cast for minority candidates in the republican caucus, this is the number i think really is fascinating as well. that is -- in the person of bernie sanders, half of the democratic votes in the state of iowa went to a socialist. what does that speak to in the diabetic pa democratic party, ed? >> there's a lot of socialists out there. hillary clinton and nancy pelosi couldn't define what a socialist is. i think what hillary clinton has
6:36 am
to watch, not trying to be humorous here. a 60 point gap between voters under 35. sanders won that 84-14. >> 70 point advantage. >> that is dramatic, way more than obama did. you look at the audience out there and they're a bunch of old people and i'm an old person so i can say this, hillary's support was all older people and the young people were basically with sanders. that's not a good thing for any democrat long term. >> i want to go back to the socialist thing. i think this is important. we have heard the democratic national chair unable or unlanguage to define the difference between a democrat and socialist in this country. we're looking at polls where many democrats define themselves as socialists. we're looking at a sea change in the party no long ear pejorative in the minds of democrats to self-identify as a socialist. what does that mean for what
6:37 am
looks like a clash between -- i won't decide here this early who will probably be facing off, it looks at this point it's going to be between a reasonably conservative republican and a very liberal democrat no matter whether it's hillary clinton or bernie sanders or whomever. >> i think the issue of taxes is a good litmus test. it used to be everyone said i won't raise taxes and walter mondale -- >> bernie sanders said the hell with all that. >> barack obama actually started it. said in both campaigns i will raise taxes and he did. and clinton and sanders talking about taxes. and democrats are openly and clearly the party of tax hikes. >> with 19 trilli$19 trillion i this country are you telling me any republican can walk out in front of the american people if he intends, or she, to govern
6:38 am
responsibly, that there wouldn't be a tax increase? i don't think any can reasonably make that statement. >> you can't because of the spending programs. we will get to a 20 trilli$20 t deficit. we need more revenue and you get revenue by creating growth or raise more revenue from taxes. >> we have to run. michael. >> quickly, democrats are not promising pay down the debt or reduce the deficit, they want to add programs. >> i'm saying republicans have to join this unfortunate refrain because it's the only responsible way forward. whatever your ideology or philosophy at this point, that's the mess we're in. 19 trilli$19 trillion, folks. thanks so much in accelerating. thank you. joining us now, former army vice chief of staff, fox news military analyst, general jack keane, great to have you with
6:39 am
us. let's start if we may with a carter working on a budget but laying out the threats, and including russia, china, north korea, iran and the islamic state. we haven't heard this enumeration and that many threats to this country in some time by a defense secretary. your thoughts. >> certainly those threats are real. i do believe we have to make certain we have the capabilities to deal with that. fra frankly, this budget, while he's asking for more money, nowhere near what we need. what happened to us, so the audiences can understand, we've been fighting these insurge suss in iraq and afghanistan and we were not provided the technol y technological capabilities we
6:40 am
needed to fight conventional r wars. as these wars wind down what the administration wants to do and in the past after the collapse of the soviet union is downsize the military budget when in fact that's exactly the wrong thing to do. >> precisely the path we're on, that is the trajectory for our defense budget, as you point out. then, at the same time, carter asks for 3$3.4 billion to countr russian aggression for europe. the way this is working right now, what carter is saying in this modern era is the united states needs to borrow 3$3.4 billion from china to give to europe to counter-the russian aggression. at some point, someone in washington, d.c. has to have the judgment and the sense to say, we've got to try a different paradigm here because this way doesn't work for us long term at
6:41 am
the same day we're talking 19 trillion and a national debt! >> what we're really talking about here, lou, we believe that russia's strategic objective is to collapse nato. >> our strategic objective is to collapse russia. this administration is pursuing the collapse of russia's economy. >> let me just deal with the first point you made. >> sure. >> they're trying to collapse nato. the baltics have been practicing exercises three years in that direction. we have, on the ground, in europe right now, two army brigades and some other supported troops and air power to the tune of 67,000 troops during the height of the cold war, it was 500,000. no one suggested we need to go back to that. we have cut the force there to a point where we don't have any degree of deterrence.
6:42 am
we have to make the russians, when they look at europe and look at doing what we believe they're intending to do, that it's too much for them to do. that's an unwelcome act on their part and it's going to cost them too much. that's what deterred them for 50 years. we're not doing that. even in this budget we're not coming close. >> general jack keane, we appreciate it. thanks so much. good to see you. >> thanks. good talking to you as always. >> here's something you don't see on aircraft everyday, take a look, a 68-year-old pilot, young fellow at the controls. he had to land a single engine cessna plane in a lagoon and he circled the airport burning off fuel for nearly two hours. here he comes. the pilot made a textbook, textbook emergency landing and set a study for some younger pilots along the way. up next, ambassador john bolton joins us. we will talk politics and geopolitics and what the obama
6:43 am
administration is doing to protect 4 million americans who contract the disease next year, from the zika virus. versions pinpointing the likely cause of an explosion that forced a passenger jetliner to make an emergency landing. much more coming right up. look at that! it's a fact. kind of like bill splitting equals nitpicking. but i only had a salad. it was a buffalo chicken salad. salad. lots of vitamins a&c, and, only 50 calories a serving... good morning, indeed. v8. veggies for all. all across the state the economy is growing,arts today. with creative new business incentives, the lowest taxes in decades,
6:44 am
and university partnerships, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in utica, where a new kind of workforce is being trained. and in albany, the nanotechnology capital of the world. let us help grow your company's tomorrow, today at business.ny.gov at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in.
6:45 am
6:46 am
6:47 am
japan's military is on high alert tonight concerned about a rocket missile language. japan has destroyed its missile batteries after north korea's threat the they will language later next week after the languaged from the her mitt kingdom and north korea is called. we have john bolton, american enterprises senior fellow. great to have you here. what japan is doing and the united states as well in the pacific preparing. do you think this is a threat on the part of north korea to pacifically jap l
6:48 am
pacific -- specifically to japan or any other allies? >> i think who believes what north korea says on any given day? maybe a satellite language or missile language or anything else. the fact is unless you have a high degree of confidence in north korean technology than i do, sitting in japan you have to worry if that missile won't make it into orbit and find its trajectory into an urban area. that's why their missile defense concerns are up and alert to it. there is a larger question. we have been told in the past year by the commander of u.s. forces korea, they nuclearized their ba ballistic missiles could put the united states, leave japan alone, the united states in range in short order. this is something to be
6:49 am
concerned about no question about it. >> i want to go to a couple other threats people are not considering tonight. that is this worldwide health alert from the world health organization on the zika virus. rick scott, the governor of florida has just put four counties under -- declared them under emergency because of the threat. nine cases there have been dete detected. why -- let me ask you this -- why isn't there more of an obvious action on the part of this administration to screening those coming into this country and trying to protect the country from this virus? >> well, there absolutely should be. if you think back to the ebola virus stair of care of 2014, th administration was slow to worry about that, too. there was public outrage in some cases of people concerned about the virus entering this country. we had nurses put in quarantine who filed suit against chris christie. we had reporters who were in the
6:50 am
danger zone who refused to stay in quarantine themselves. i think this threat in the near term may be more serious because it's right here in this hemisphere, people coming from all over latin america. i think it's a real public health problem and the essence of sovereignty to protect your border against this. there's a greater problem here as well. that is, i'm sure that rogue sta states, russia, china, that look at biological weapons as viable ways of waging war are looking at these as they used to look at ebola and still do very carefully and will see how the american system responds to it. we talked about the nuclear weapons program. don't forget biological and chemical warfare as well. >> ambassador, john bolton. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. investigators closely following the investigation into an explosion that blew a hole into a commercial jetliner over
6:51 am
somalia. it forced and emergency landing and a passenger is believed to have been sucked out of the cabin. the cell phone video shows the hole shortly after that explosion. u.s. officials believe a bomb is the cause of the rupture in the fuselage. investigators have not yet found any evidence of a criminal act even though there is a suggestion, strong suggestion obviously that was an explosion of some sort, we just don't know what kind. two people aboard were injured, one is missing tonight. finding a body on the ground. they have not confirmed the person's identity or whether or not he was aboard the aircraft involved. up next, lebron james' tattoos trigger a copyright lawsuit. figure that one out. we have mercedes with us next. you won't believe -- this country's legal system -- i think it can be better.
6:52 am
the attorneys disagree with me but there it is. we'll take it up with them next. every year, the amount of data your enterprise uses goes up. smart devices are up. cloud is up. analytics is up. seems like everything is up except your budget. introducing comcast business enterprise solutions. with a different kind of network that delivers the bandwidth you need without the high cost. because you can't build the business of tomorrow on the network of yesterday.
6:53 am
6:54 am
[martha and mildred are good to. go. because you can't build the business of tomorrow here's your invoice, ladies. a few stops later, and it looks like big ollie is on the mend. it might not seem that glamorous having an old pickup truck for an office... or filling your days looking down the south end of a heifer, but...i wouldn't have it any other way. look at that, i had my best month ever. and earned a shiny new office upgrade. i run on quickbooks. that's how i own it.
6:55 am
i've been waiting all day to talk with two of the best attorneys in the business, miss wiehl and mercedes, fox news analy analysts. good morning.
6:56 am
lebron james and his tattoos, long story short, people want to have ownership over the images of his tattoos. it is the nba 2k. the artist has copyrights, this is outrageous! >> why? it's original artwork. it's being used to make money. the damages may not be great, they may be di minimus, original artwork out there to make money. not everybody's tattoo walking around, but somebody using it in a movie or video. >> it's skin art. skin art. that's exactly what it is, skin art. the fact he has a tattoo, an original tattoo artist that did it, he's an artist. >> people get tattoos, in the nba, everybody has all these tattoos and walking around in skin that doesn't belong to them. it's crazy! >> come on. >> we want to see your tattoos.
6:57 am
>> you really do? >> a big "s" on your chest. >> that's right. >> the truth is this is the kind of thing that's going on in -- a student goes and gets a school picture. that belongs to the photographer. these issues are getting crazier and crazier. >> images are different. this is art. there's a difference. if someone takes a picture of us right here -- >> we can claim ownership over that picture and if they sell that picture without our consent, that can be problematic for them. >> i have to tell you, i think we need to work this legal thing out. this crazy ideas what is equity, all these crazy idea s what is reasonable time to bring a lawsuit and have it adjudicated whether it is criminal or civil, the country's legal system is falling apart. >> no, it's not, because we are here. >> except for the part where you two have dominion, it's really amazing to me.
6:58 am
let's turn to the lottery lawsuit. this is a good one. two lovers fighting over a million dollars lottery ticket, have a dispute over who gets the money. the boyfriend says half is half. what do you think? >> i think it's a real problem. they have nothing in writing. it's he said, she said. no oral contracts. >> the old expression, oral contracts are worth exactly the paper they're written on. >> exactly. >> unless there's a witness that heard and there's no indication of that, it's an roral contract he said she said. he said he paid for the ticket, paid 20 bucks for the ticket. did he give that as a gift or conditional gift means condition on buying that lottery ticket, if he can prove it's conditional. again, he said-she said. >> it will be really difficult. >> i have to answer because there is talk last night and
6:59 am
earlier this morning we will see a bernie sanders sue the dnc and democratic party because they have this screwball system in iowa, no way? >> a coin toss, yes. >> a little problematic. >> a little problematic? >> can you imagine -- >> i can't -- >> basically -- >> but it comes down to a coin toss? if that's written in the rules you can have a coin toss, they're probably okay, if it's not, let's do a coin toss to figure this out, it's a problem. >> what are you going to say to colin kaepernick, the poor guy. he's inundated in tattoos. i say the poor guy, he has 1$12 million. you can buy a lot of new skin, i guess. >> exactly. >> he could, you know. >> doesn't have any skin in the game. >> that was good, a good one! >> all right.
7:00 am
lis wiehl and mercedes colw col thanks. we will see you tomorrow. good night from new york! john: live free or die. that's new hampshire's state motto. now presidential candidates are campaigning there. some are sucking up to new hampshire's libertarian. >> any candidate that tells you have we don't have to do anything to medicare or social security is lying. >> you should have a right to try any medicine that can save your life. lou: this candidate, he's doing something mitt romney didn't do well. he's using data analytics to guide his campaign. >> it turned it on its head. >> if i can learn this -- john:
