icon. "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ >> good morning, everybody. hi. >> mike: seems like we were just here. >> dave: we were. >> mike: yeah. >> dave: and we made it through the occupy wall street protests. we managed to make it to our building. the lady in red is alisyn and clayton morris. >> alisyn: and you're saying we made it through the protests because they had been down at wall street, that's lower manhattan and they've moved up to times square, that of course the crossroads of the world. >> dave: in our back yard. >> alisyn: where a major tourist mecca is here in new york and they were quite disruptive. we'll tell you what happened and in fact let's start with your headlines because occupy wall street has taken apparently a violent and ugly turn all across the world.
3:02 am
let's start right here in new york city, 74 people were arrested yesterday. the protests in times square with mostly people who did get out of control later in the evening. people were busted after not dispersing and trying to topple police barriers in midtown manhattan. two officers were hurt in this scuffle. now, across the atlantic, rome is in a state of chaos, protesters torching cars, smaring store windows in a fight they say is corporate greed and financial inequality and threw rocks and bottles at police who responded with water canons. look at the scene here. these are not peaceful protests anymore. in london's financial center only slightly less dull. and several-- the dull? several scuffles led to five
3:03 am
arrests people there took to the streets. the united states is going after iran's nuclear program again, trying to get inspectors to release classified documents. god bless you. >> thank you. >> alisyn: could contain what's happening in this isolated country. peter doocy is live with more, what do we need to know. >> reporter: the week after the terror lot alleged cooked up by the iranian government was uncovered, the united states said it would try to further isolate iran. one way, by asking the u.n. to go public with some classified intel that their inspectors has that shows that iran is experimenting with nuclear weapons technology. the spokesman for the national security council said yesterday, quote, the united states believes that a comprehensive assessment would be invaluable to the international community and the consideration of iran's nuclear program. all this have comes today from a story in the new york times which also reports that the head of the u.n. international
3:04 am
atomic agent has taught releasing sensitive data about iran's nuclear data in the past. he's worried if he does. the iran would kick them out. and right now, putting the possible motives aside iran does let the u.n. into the country to check out the nuclear activities and something else the obama administration is worried about according to the new york times article, harsh sanctions might jack up oil prices in the u.s. and europe and make any kind of an economic recovery even more difficult and also says the reason nobody in the obama administration has come forward with this info about iran's nuclear weapons program already is because they think that after the united states told the whole world iran had weapons of mass destruction back in 2003, and we didn't find any, that the international community might not believe what we've got to say, they might not trust our evidence, alisyn. >> alisyn: boy, that's a shame. thank you, peter, for the update. developments in the case of missing baby irwin.
3:05 am
police in kansas city questioning a local homeless man named johnnie tanko reportedly doing odd jobs in the neighborhood the night that lisa disappeared and unrelated charges and police i sin he is he' not a suspect at the moment. >> he want today talk to him no more or less than we did somebody who lives two houses down. what the result was i don't know. really i want to stress the guy is not a suspect. >> alisyn: right now the governor of missouri is sending 25 members of the national guard to help try to find little lisa. now, yesterday, there was also a development, if you were watching judge pirro's show you saw breaking news, police searched an abandoned home after receiving a tip about diapers and a backpack found inside the. that seemed very significant last night. today police are saying that lead turned out to be nothing, but stay tuned for more developments throughout the morning. the ground zero mosque had to pay up or move on. reports that con-edison told
3:06 am
mosque developers they owe 1.7 million dollars in back rent and threatening to terminate the lease and take back the property. con-ed owns half and rent out to the mosque developers and raised the rent from 2800 a month to $47,000 a month? whoo. >> alisyn: that's quite a jack in the rent. >> dave: take a look at former president george w. bush, he used to own the rangers and last night hoping they could get it done. made it look easy 15-5. rangers scored 9 runs in the third innings to put it out of reach and the second world series appearance in a row and lost last year as now. they'll face either milwaukee or st. louis. that was very thankful i got to get to bed early because this game was over in the third inning.
3:07 am
>> mike: 15-5. what do you think he was saying to the umpire, could you help us out. >> dave: they had a live mike so we could play it on. they had the conversation micced up so it was an interesting interaction and should ab great game later today. did you watch. >> alisyn: i didn't. i don't know how i missed it. >> mike: the rangers back in it again the second year in a row. >> dave: they lost to the phillies and somehow get back on a 92 million dollar payroll, it's amazing. rick reichmuth in with a check of the weather. rick, did you catch any of the game last night? >> i didn't. >> dave: gosh, all right. >> fantastic win for the rangers, nolan ryan sat with the former president. >> hey, did you like yesterday? >> i loved it, last night was fantastic. >> dave: weather-wise? solid, a nice night to protest. >> solid. >> dave: we need some rain to clean those folks off. >> that's not going to happen. if you liked yesterday, a similar day setting uchl. the temperatures as you're
3:08 am
waking up. cool across the north and warm in the stout and scattered showers across parts of the great lakes and maybe more in towards the central plains and none of this is too heavy, none is going to cause any huge problems for anyone, central part of the country, mid atlantic looking great. exactly what you saw yesterday, more of the tropical moisture screaming in, and this will get heavier, a lot of the moisture screaming in across the eastern part of the country though the rain will return, tuesday, wednesday, and thursday for parts of the east of the right now similar to what you saw yesterday. southwest continuing to be nice and a little bit of moisture streaming into the pacific northwest just like we saw yesterday. temperature-wise almost the same. cooling down a little bit across parts of the colorado rockies, extremely warm to the south and in fact, see a lot of records broken across the south. highest you've seen for the date in this year. and places like arkansas, texas, down toward the southeast and you know, the kansas city cooling down and then big change happens on tuesday and the bottom drops out on dallas into the 60's
3:09 am
and stay that way for a few days and see the cooler air filtering in across the central part of the country. and let's see the rain move in, all right, guys. >> the good thing about the world series wrap-up. we won't have the team in there and snow-outs and constant rainouts. down in texas it will stay warm. >> alisyn: i knew that. >> dave: thanks, today marks a very special day as you all know. it's the dedication of the dr. martin luther king, jr. memorial in washington d.c., which kicks off just a couple of hours from now. >> mike: to share more about his legacy, we're joined by his niece. dr. alvita king, "how can the dream survive" a very good book. doctor. thank you for joining us. i've not been down to see it the memorial, but seems powerful. >> it's powerful and it's like
3:10 am
him because he was a very strong man and a very humble man. so, it's nestled between the other monuments near the water and rising out of that mountain, the mountain of hope, the valley of despair, i believe it does capture the spirit of dr. king who loved the lord as he loved the people and i believe that people will be blessed when they go. >> alisyn: and yet, dr. king, there is a little controversy about the memorial because some people said that he wouldn't be comfortable with something this imposing and this grand there. what do you think he would make of it? >> you know, that's absolutely true because he simply wanted to serve people and i say to his children and all of you us in the family, it's a wonderful tribute, but it's a poor substitute for not having him him. if he were here, he'd be still doing the work that he always did because he did not want to be recognized. he wanted to serve. so that's true. >> dave: there are also some
3:11 am
angry that the sculpture materials came from china. we went get into that. you mentioned the family aspect and we want to hear your perspective. >> i'll tell you that, even that it came from china, dr. king loved all of humanity and all one community and i hope that love can abound. dr. king was a wonderful man with a can you feel sense of humor, wonderful preacher, wonderful father, wonderful uncle and he made his presence known. he and my dad, az king, and naomi, they were all good parents in our lives and even down to the grandparents. a wonderful man, great preacher, great sense of humor, loved a good slice of potato pie. >> mike: so do i. i wish i had one now. but he called you special. think of where you've been, your family home fire bombed
3:12 am
during the civil rights movement. today do you think you'll be emotional. >> i'll be emotional, and i know he's in a wonderful place, called heaven with all of our family members it who have gone before us. we're going to be supporting martin and christine and i'm here, mother naomi is here and we're going to be looking at the god who gave us martin and thanking god that king had a dream. >> alisyn: it looks like you have a nice day for it. of course, it was postponed, as you will remember, because hurricane irene was moving in. so it was postponed and some people worried because we're no longer in the summer, kids are back in school. people are back at work, it won't attract the crowds that it deserves today. >> interestingly enough, i was over at the memorial yesterday and there were many, many people and i asked the person who was guarding this, goodness are there that many people here all the time. he said there are people coming back and forth all the
3:13 am
time and i believe since it's a weekend right in the middle of church time and so we're going to have to pray, too, and praise the lord while we're there, but i think there will be many people there today, i do. >> dave: you said he would be proud of this memorial. would he be proud at what he sees if he were still here. obviously we have a black president, but would he like how far we've come since then or things that you would imagine would bother him? >> what he would be pleased about is that people are still looking, people still have a dream. he would not like to be memorialized in stone he would like for the words that he used to encourage us to inspire us again. and i think that's why it's a good thank this there's even the image, but that the words are there and so, he would still be praying. he would still be hopeful. he would still be encouraging us to seek out that dream. to seek out the lord. i believe if he were here with us, he would say, don't, don't build a monument to me, you you don't need my image,
3:14 am
remember the words. so the words are there, take time if you go and read the wa 450 foot long wall and 14 or 15 different quotes from the speeches. dr. king have a great day today. enjoy. >> thank you, have a good day, too. >> alisyn: how powerful. >> mike: it will be an interesting day. >> dave: i think it's a day that a lot of people ought to sit back and watch and learn and governor huckabee said listen to the speeches. i learned what i didn't know before. powerful, powerful. >> alisyn: it's a great reminder. on that lofty note let's bring it down to earth. >> mike: money. >> alisyn: to money and politics to the left lofty issue. the numbers are in. yesterday the campaigns released their financial reports and this is significant because it else you who is up, who is down and we knew that already and who owes money and what the winners have been spending their money on.
3:15 am
>> i'm surprised how fast the money comes in and goes right back out again. they spend it fast like mitt romney-- >> the treasury. >> alisyn: it's like your atm. >> mike: exactly like my atm when my kids are in town. mitt romney has spent 12 million. rick perry, 17.2 million. spent just 2 million. >> dave: that puts rick perry in excellent position if he begins to get the message to resonate. ron paul could do well. 8.2 million quite a haul, but then again spent an awful lot of it. 7.5. >> alisyn: and then there are candidates in trouble, michele bachmann is in a bit of trouble. she raised 4 million dollars and she spent 2 million dollars. she said though that she's proud because her -- the average amount that an individual has given, i think, was $46. so, a lot of the candidates are probably-- this is really grass roots on that level.
3:16 am
>> mike: exactly. this is what's interesting, look at herman cain, number one in a lot of the polls, but look at his money. raised 2.8 million and spent 1.9 of it, but he's doing so well without raising much money. >> dave: he has, he says he has had a million dollars cash on hand and you wonder if that's enough to campaign to compete. john mccain was flying the economy and busting out there with he no money, so it can happen and he got the nomination. >> alisyn: he's contributed 675,000 of his own money and a wealthy man. >> dave: and huntsman committed 2 1/2 million of his money. >> alisyn: that's right. rick santorum is in some financial trouble as we now know. >> mike: and that number isn't-- >> he raised $700,000 and spent more than that. >> mike: and newt gingrich, close. >> alisyn: they're talking about how they're spending money and taking private
3:17 am
claims to the the tune of 240,000. you have to. and what you need to be as campai campaigns on time, but private jets the get expensive. >> dave: when you're trying to go to nevada, new hampshire, south carolina. herman cain last night on the huckabee show talking, answering some of his critics when it comes to the 9-9-9 tax plan. the biggest critique, criticism of 9-9-9 it will hurt the middle class and it will hurt the poor. here is how he responded to the governor last night. >> what a the lot of people don't understand is, the 9-9-9 plan and the sales tax piece is a replacement tax. we're going to replace invisible taxes that are embedded in all products and services, with a visible tax and as a result of that, frgoing to take out the invisible taxes so the cost of goods
3:18 am
will go down and when they pay the 9% retail tax they will essentially not be paying any more because we're taking the invisible taxes that are embedded and we placing it with a visible tax of a 9% retail sales tax. >> alisyn: he's lost you again. >> mike: he's lost me. >> dave: he should have lost you. it went from simple to-- invisible taxes. >> alisyn: taxes that ooh are built in not in the price. >> dave: and governor huckabee, senses that the prices will come down under 9-9-9. i don't know how you're going to convince americans that it's going to happen. he's supposed unveil a lot more, i don't know in that-- >> what about herman cain not going to iowa and seems to want to stay in tennessee to sell books at a book signing,
3:19 am
things like that, but he addressed that last night with huckabee, too. >> some states have changed the schedule as to when they're going to hold their primary. some states are still trying to decide whether they're going to use proportional allocation for whoever wins versus winner take all. so, what it's done, it has compressed the campaign season leading up to primary and caucus season and that means that states like tennessee are going to have a much bigger impact than they would have had traditionally. so, it makes all the sense in the world to spend some time in tennessee. >> alisyn: karl rove says that's flat wrong. i mean, he knows a little something about-- >> the interview with governor huckabee. >> alisyn: what's happened there are unconventional candidates in the race and think they can do unconventional strategy. and karl rove says you still have to play by the rules. >> mike: and seize the moment. 's got the9-9-9 plan.
3:20 am
>> dave: she's been to iowa 13th time. he's been to south carolina, new hampshire and nevada even less, there's a long way to go in terms of maintaining this bounce, time will tell. >> mike: let's talk about something that happened yesterday on the curvy couch. i noticed some chemistry, shouldn't bring it up. is your wife watching between you and juliann hough. >> alisyn: or could have been fawning. >> dave: she is a lovely lady. >> mike: she's in foot loose. >> dave: it steams thatting is a remake or-- the two big movies this week footloose and the thing. "the thing" is a remake after remake and "footloose", reviews unmixed.
3:21 am
some great, some not so great. >> they look at what the best and worst remakes have been. >> mike: there you go, dave you like that remake. >> mike: don't take the video down. we don't know how footloose will fair. >> dave: we do, 17 million the estimated haul over the weekend not a huge haul. >> alisyn: but acclaim, we don't know how it will hold up to the original, but "the departed", that jack nicholson and matt damon, considered to have done. >> mike: what is that a remake of. >> alisyn: internal affairs. >> mike: not long ago, ten years ago that didn't wait long for the remake. remade it like five years later. >> dave: that's an example of a great remake. i think a tremendous movie. >> mike: let's go with a stinker my book, "psycho" and remade with anne heche.
3:22 am
>> dave: i forgot this was a remake. >> mike: yes, and vince vaughan. wasn't in just after anne heche said she came out as a lesbian and blue the chemistry. >> alisyn: she was heterosexual back again? >> i don't know. >> alisyn: i'm confused, a remake. >> dave: focusing on remaking, no, my point was. not all remakes are horrible, not all are great. what are your favorites. >> mike: yeah. >> dave: what do you think, was there one that comes to mind. departed. >> alisyn: departed was great and the point that the writer made, fur he' going to remake psycho, make it great. don't do a lousy remake after chafshg. >> dave: dirty dancing is in the exone out. a remake and people were furious. >> mike: who is going to star in dirty dancing. >> dave: they don't know, rumors from justin timberlake, to derek hough, juliann's

3:44 am
uncle ml, as i affectionately called him. so in that book, i share fond memories about him making visits to our house, about greeting him in the middle of the aisle at church, and getting a great big hug, about him sending a telegram to my mother when i was born, congratulating her on my birth. but in the second book, i wanted to, i wanted again to have children and adults who are children at heart to begin to understand the work that martin luther king, jr. did and how he did it. he had a unique way of strategizing to bring about change and that strategy is still relevant today. >> mike: sure is. >> his strategy of nonviolence, love and action is still relevant today.
3:45 am
and in fact, i teach a course at sellman college called liberation psychology of martin luther king, jr. and in that course, i talk about how martin luther king, jr. was really the greatest psychologist. >> mike: sure was. >> perhaps because he really taught us what best behavior really was and so, the strategy of nonviolence was not only relevant for changing social ills, but also for use personally. >> mike: doctor-- >> so in this book, i wanted children to begin to understand it. >> mike: that's great, too. because we can -- you never forget, that's for sure. >> yes. >> mike: let's talk about the great thing happening today, this memorial. >> yes. >> mike: what do you think your uncle would have thought about being between the lincoln memorial and the jefferson memorial? >> oh, my goodness, oh, my

3:47 am
know, talk about a check that america had returned, insufficient funds, and so, i'd like to think that he is still holding that check to say to america, we, you know, we've come a long way, but we've got a long way to go. >> mike: that's for sure. doctor, quickly here, i'm running out of time, so sorry. >> great, that's okay. >> mike: when you say to someone, i am dr. king's niece. >> yes. >> mike: what is the reaction they want to hug you and touch you? >> they do, and it's amazing because we're just regular people. we love people, we're people people, and they always want to know what do you remember about him. and so, that's why i wrote my "my uncle martin's big heart", but more importantly, i want children to really understand that he did a great work and he did it with l-o-v-e.

good. the one that did is willy wonka and the chocolate factory. how could you improve on the first one with jean wilder, it's so happy and whimsical and how, with johnny depp it became darker and demented and critics liked that. >> dave: i wasn't a huge fan of the remake. lovelied the original. couldn't improve upon the original. >> mike: i get tired of johnny depp. who is his-- tim burrton, the director, such a-- >> and please keep calling me. >> mike: he wants to your pirate. rrrr, walk the plank. >> dave: the pink panther of course remade. how did that do the second time around. >> alisyn: not well. >> mike: it was remade. i did not. but critics said it was not so good. i don't think it was a success

4:35 am
>> ten days to pay or they're going to tack more. if i had the money i never would have asked for help. >> alisyn: this is ridiculous. gates says fema admits they made a mistake, but the treasury department's demand still stands. all right, now, that's wrong. we need to get some attention to that story. meanwhile, a hotel worker in florida fired for being too patriotic? 26-year-old shaun may worked at the front desk at the hoe he tell in st. augustine for two years and says he got the boot for refusing to take off his american flag pin. managers say it violates dress code policy and may says he's furious, but he'd rather lose his job than not stand up for what's right. those are your headlines. again, a little pin? violates? american flag pin? >> this always keeps happening. this is something that happens almost every hour we get to look at rick. >> hold on here, guys, cold out here, chilly, don't like

4:37 am
central plains and very warm across areas of the south and take a look at today after this. on tuesday, when the big changes happen. we're going to be seeing temperatures drop into the 60's, across areas of texas. and so, the cold is getting down there. memphis down to 64. one more warm day across parts of the east. by wednesday, the big cooldown in towards the east as well. back to you inside. >> thanks so much, rick, as we've been telling you of course, it's a historic day. the reverend dr. martin luther king, jr. memorial dedication begins just about an hour from now. >> mike: yeah, ahead of that the apprentice programs at fox news got exclusive access to some of the women in the civil rights movement. dr. king's nieces, angela ferris watson and alvita king talk about the memory of their uncle and the importance of his cause. >> i just knew him as a regular guy. came by the house every now and then. and my favorite memory was in
4:38 am
ebenezer church. after church he was standing in line to greet the members, and i would come up, and he would see me on the door and he would step into the aisle when i run down the aisle and he would pick-me-up and give me a big hug. >> the statue is very beautiful, but i'd like to people know the sacrifice. their mother is gone and sister and dexter and bernie are here, it's a tremendous sacrifice, that's a lovely tribute and it's almost a poignant, bittersweet sacrifice though, because the statue is beautiful, but it can't take the place of them so i know in a little bit the sacrifices they've made for their brother p and father and the rest of our our uncle, and
4:39 am
glad the world remembers. >> and we want to bring in juan williams, thr of "eyes on the prize. tell us the significance of today. >> it's on several levels. alisyn. first and foremost, i was down there yesterday with that same fox team with the yales program and just looking around with my two sons and feeling a burst of emotion, so many people down there, even yesterday, because they feel like this really is an unbelievable moment. it's so emotional, the idea that king would be honored in this way. you've got to remember that in his time, no one would have said, oh, yeah, he's a popular guy. he was often a highly controversial, real flesh and blood figure and a man then who goes on to win nobel prize, of course, now to be celebrated in this way, a child of the american civil rights era, you know, born into strict legal segregation, it's just unbelievable and a real, i think, triumph for
4:40 am
america, the kind much activism that was embodied in king, nonviolent social protests, then becomes echoed in places as far away as poland and anti-apartheid movement in south africa. you can go anywhere in the world and people will talk about what king means. protests at that take place in tibet, an example to them, a child of the american south, black american, astounding he would become a transcendent figure in our world. >> dave: and martin luther king iii wrote a piece in "the washington post" talking about the arab spring, and perhaps dr. king's influence on that. did you see his fingerprints on that protest? >> without a doubt. it's not the fact that i see it, dave, it's that people who are involved say he's their model. he's a model for someone who stands for principle, who stands for people, and it's just incredible. as i said, with my sons
4:41 am
yesterday. my sons are, obviously, young men and they didn't know king. you know, i barely was alive when king was alive, but i had some sort of contemporary sense that there was this civil rights leader, but for young people in america today, he's a name on the street sign, a name in a book, and often times, they think he represents the entirety of the civil rights movement. in fact, you know, when i see the monument and there's poetry even in the structure because the idea is out of a mountain of despair comes a stone of hope and there coming out of the stone is the personification of dr. king. he represents so many people who participated in trying to change the laws of america peacefully and under the constitution and the capacity, again, for social change in our country, the capacity for king on this sunday morning, to be a preacher who appealed to christian conscience of all americans. they were all children of god and the fact that that message
4:42 am
was a powerful, effective message, is just amazing to you. >> mike: juan, new for your thoughts. >> you're welcome, guys. >> dave: enjoy the ceremony today. we know you'll be there, thanks, juan. >> mike: the fate of this iranian pastor blasted for being a christian now in the hands of iran's north and the latest 0en the situation and how the vatican is hoping to help. >> alisyn: and bieber fever, hundreds of teenage girls swarm a hotel to get a glimpse of the biebs, and wait until you hear the one problem. >> mike: occupy bieber. ♪ that's what they do with great grains cereal. they steam and bake the actual whole grain while the otr guy's flake is more processed. mmm.

4:47 am
other. >> alisyn: for our viewers who haven't been following the story as closely as you have, this is a christian pastor in iran. what was his crime, his alleged crime? >> his alleged crime, he did not recant his christian faith. they're saying you need to go back and accept the faith of your ancestors, he said as an adult, i have always been christian, i'm he not going to recant. you know, the real story here, i think, is a human one and that is had a man with a wife and children is willing to say, i'm going be to be executed because i pre fear being faithful to what i believe than giving in to this regime. and now that a, a religious leader, the supreme religious leader in iran would actually be contemplating his execution, says a lot. it says a lot. >> some people wanted the vatican to get involved more vociforously or earlier. what was the vatican thinking? >> i think about two weeks
4:48 am
ago, bill o'reilly brought me on his show and said, hey, why isn't the vatican speaking up? they speak up for all sorts of things and my conjecture at the moment. most likely they're working behind the scenes. and the british bishops came out and said publicly indeed the vatican after they made their statement, the vatican was quietly working behind the scenes, why? because they have direct diplomatic avenues that a the lot of people don't have. why? because they don't have political interest. the vatican is there for human rights and standing up, it seems, behind the scenes, which it seems to be what we have to do now, to be a very loud voice each and everyone's own way. >> alisyn: you spend a lot of time at the vatican and in rome. >> certainly will do. >> alisyn: and father jonathan, great to see you this sunday morning. all right, on a completely different note, women holding off from saying "i do". i'm telling you if i was a single man, none this have was happening.

5:02 am
they're showing a legacy video of dr. king's legacy and it reminds he me of what i was seeing as a child growing up here in the nation's capital and also in haguerstown, maryland. i can recall dr. king giving a speech, i was just a little kid back then, but remembering how much that speech, the "i have a dream" speech meant to me because of close proximity it was to me. not far from here the monument grounds, when he declared "i have a dream." . one of the things that sticks in my mind from the speech, resonates. i have a dream that my poor little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character. i cannot tell you how many times i reflect on that with my own children today, who are grown adults and deal with people from you will a walks of life, which gives me hope and the impression that we have achieved a lot of the dream at that dr. king talked about in terms of getting racial equality in our
5:03 am
country. >> mike: tell us a couple of things that we can look forward to in the next two hours, and i guess the whole ceremony is four hours, the president is going to speak. >> reporter: mike, this is your kind of program, knowing you as i did and have over these years, there will ab lot of activity going on and the video is starting right now and then they have morning joy, which will start about ten minutes from now, once the video finishes and hear from great choirs, as well as from some people throughout the day who are known poets, nicky giovanni. at nine o'clock they'll have the dedication ceremonies which will feature the family of dr. king, martin luther king iii, elder bernice king, and brothers and sisters. in addition to that, at eleven o'clock that's the hour we'll hear from the president of the united states. and the president of the united states, i'm told, and have discovered, was delivering an emotional topic, how much dr. king meant to him. you'll recall that in 2007 when he was then senator barack obama, he said in his famous selma speech, i stood on the shoulders of those who
5:04 am
won the civil rights campaign, and then as president he said i would not be here today were it not for the efforts of dr. king and all those who came before me. in many ways, a lot of african-americans in this country can relate to that and we will see what the president talks about when he talks about the legacy of dr. king. and that's what this day is all about. this dedication of the memorial is about the legacy of dr. martin luther king, not only what he gave to this country, but what he gave to the world internationally. remember, he won the nobel prize, he went on to do some great things, speaking about injustice anywhere it might exist and trying to fight poverty and then also trying to bring people together and bring them to the table abruptly, mike. >> mike: see you again next hour, for more. >> all right, buddy. >> mike: and i paid $14 with my friend steve grant in wichita, kansas. aretha franklin. >> dave: she will be there. >> alisyn: she always brings it.

5:06 am
people protesting are missing history. my father had to start the first black cool in hernando, mississippi, blacks couldn't learn in the schools, they were learning in the churches. today we have a great education system and people don't know that people lost their lives so we could have equality and so we could march and state our grievance joost and to go on and be successful regardless what you were born into. >> without dr. martin luther king, we would not have thurgood marshal. condoleezza rice, and all owe it to dr. martin luther king. >> mike: it makes me so sad when young people don't remember what it was like in the '60s. it was a hard, hard time. >> even with me, even now, in the state of mississippi. i was the first black fee male to run for office in mississippi, and received death threats. you still have racism in this country and also you have race baiting in this country where we're trying to enforce people
5:07 am
to vote by playing the race card. so, this is one memorable time i have when barack obama won. i did an interview on the same stage with vernon jordan. and he worked heavily in the civil rights movement. and i said mr. jordan, would dr. martin luther king be happy today? he said, angela, martin would be pleased, but say we still have a long way to go. >> why? >> because we don't have -- i mean alisyn can attest to this, we don't have a level playing field in america. but we can't use it as an excuse. as women, as black americans, and hispanic americans, but we can't use it as an excuse. >> dave: we don't have a level playing field? we have a black president and a black g.o.p. front runner for the nomination. >> that does not right the wrongs of the past and that does not change the heart in some people. i just ran in 2010. again, where we had debt threats because i was a black woman running, where you have racist people that want blacks to stay in a certain place. have we gonna long way with
5:08 am
herman cain. >> yes. >> have we gonna long way with barack obama weighing the popular vote. >> yes. >> the other direction, herman cain is sometimes attacked for not being black enough? >> i'm attacked by being a black conservative. i'm attacked for supporting george w. bush policies, but that's what america is about, freedom of speech. >> alisyn: martin luther king, we assume would be looking down and saying, yes, we've made all of these strides and they can't-- they're so huge, the strides, in time, yet, there's more work to do. >> before he left, he was doing a campaign on poverty, and when you have certain americans living under the poverty line, when you have certain americans that are not able to get a good education because they don't have the access, i'm sure he's looking down and saying he we need great strides. we have a long way to go. it's not just up to black americans, it's not just up to hispanic americans, it's up to all americans. >> mike: if he were alive, he would be helping us do that, that's why it's so sickening
5:09 am

5:17 am
17 million dollars. what do the financial reports it will you? >> well, in terms of the two of them, there's good news and bad news. mitt romney did blow through a lot of money, but still has about 14 million dollars cash on hand. rick perry had an impressive month, but considering the fact he got into the race late in mid august, but one, the money came from big donors, a lot who have maxed out. the significance is, you can't go back and ask for more money. you'd rather have more donors with smaller contributions because you can hit them up again, also, a the lot of percentage of donors came from texas. it seems to be much more a texas phenomenon than a national phenomenon and you wonder, particularly when he got in he was the front runner for the race and now in third or fourth place and you wonder whether that money is going to continue to pour in in the forth quarter. >> dave: the herman cain race, has about a million cash on

hand. not his money, but his travel schedule, i think is the most interesting. hasn't been to iowa since august 13th and's been there 13 times and he's been to nevada, new hampshire and south carolina even less than that. he was in tennessee on friday, and here is why. >> some states have changed the schedule, as to when they're going to hold their primary. some states are still trying to decide, whether they're going to use proportional allocation for whoever wins, versus winner take all and so, what it's done. it has compressed the campaign season leading up to primary and caucus season and that means that states like tennessee are going to have a much bigger impact than they would have had traditionally. so, it makes all the sense in the world to spend some time in tennessee. >> mike: some time. >> dave: but a lot more time in iowa. do you buy tennessee's added importance and will this strategy work for him?
5:19 am
>> i've got to say i don't understand. it may be the new model in cain has defied the political experts and insiders, but he has not been in iowa in two months. i mean, this is going to either be the first or the second contest he depending how new hampshire and as you say he hasn't been in new hampshire either. there's a question of momentum and the idea that you have to do well in the early states to continue to get the media attention and to continue to get the financial support, so you can get to an iowa, to a tennessee. so, i've got to say i don't understand it. i don't understand why you would not go -- iowa is a state you would think with the social conservatives, evangelicals, that would like herman cain. i don't know why he's basically ignoring it, ignoring new hampshire, another state that likes mavericks and long shots. it's an unusual strategy, but maybe he knows something that we don't. and a lot of us thought he would do. >> mike: before you head off

with nuclear weapons, that's according to a report on the front page of today's new york times and the report also says that president obama thinks releasing this intel will help isolate iran, something his administration has been adamant about in the days after that terror plot allegedly cooked up, came to light. >> this president has been very focused on holding up iranian behavior and it's clearly seen by other nations around the world and that enables us to work cooperatively with our international partners, to isolate and put pressure on iran in a way that's never really been achieved before. >> adding to the remarks from wednesday, yesterday, national security council spokesman tommy veeter said, the united states think a comprehensive assessment would be invaluable for the international community in its consideration of iran's nuclear program and the head of the atomic energy
5:36 am
agency has thought about sharing classified information with the world, but withheld because they thought iran might kick out inspectors, at least if they're up to no good they let the weapons inspectors into the country to look around. the possible reason the obama administration is reluctant to publicly accuse iran of having nuclear weapons ambitions according to this report. they think that nobody will believe them or trust their evidence because they point back to 2003 when we accuse iraq and coming up empty. >> alisyn: and peter, thanks so much for that judgment.updat. the fbi is investigating the death of a newborn baby whose lifeless body was found aboard a cruiseship. it returned to florida after an employee discovered the baby in a guest cabin. the baby's mother, apparently a 20-year-old american woman is now in police custody and has not been charged with

5:45 am
guiliani, and democrats, howard dean, governor ed rendell. mr. mukasey, what was so important that you wanted to write to president obama? >> a couple of things, this group was designated as a terrorist organization in the 1990's as a strategic device to talk with the iranians. obviously that hasn't worked. it was kept on the list after that in the belief if they were taken off then the iranians would get upset and do things like support the terrorists in iraq and send ied's into iraq which of course, they're doing anyway. this group had been persecuted in iran. they have a group of 3400 of them who are living in encampment in iraq, and are now in danger of being really obliterated by the iraqi army. >> alisyn: in fact, we've seen some evidence that may already be happening. secretary ridge, i just want to define for our viewers what this is. this is a group called nek and as we understand it, they're
5:46 am
people who are committee had to a secular, democratic and nonnuclear iran. they sound important to iran's future. >> they certainly are. this designation has lasted for almost 15 years with the naive hope that keeping them on the terrorist list would encourage iran to negotiate with the united states around many, many issues. but the real terrorist organization, frankly, is the state of iran. it is the world' expony nent of terrorism and frankly these 3400 men and women at camp ashram have been vetted and found no evidence of any terrorist connections whatsoever. and we promised them, the united states government promised them that we would protect them. and yet, in spite of our promise, in 2009, in 2011,
5:47 am
iraqi forces, using equipment, vehicles, weapons, and unfortunately, probably training from the united states, have invaded the camp, killed 36 people. wounded 300. they have to be taken off this list, we have to get blue helmets from the u.n. there to protect them. we have to live up to our promise. our credibility is at stake here. >> alisyn: absolutely. and that video that we were just watching is, i believe, from the day of the-- from 2009 from the clashes there with iraqi forces. mr. mukasey, what happened? why haven't we kept our promise to these 3400 women, children, and men who we believe in to keep them out of harm's way? >> well, that's an excellent question, alisyn. i think that what's gone on here is that the iraqi government is more and more adjusting its policies to please its neighbor, iran. because our, our presence there is diminishing. and so, and the iranians,
5:48 am
obviously, want these people stamped out. and as a result, the iraqis have been cracking down on them and we're not in a position to do anything about it. >> alisyn: secretary ridge, have you gotten a response to your open letter to president obama yet? >> we have not gotten a response and frankly, what we hear from the state department on a regular basis, that it continues to be under advisement, that i think we need to understand that the european union looked at the available evidence, the u.k. assembled a group of juryists and said the designation of this group as a terrorist organization is perverse. our court of appeals said 18 months ago, we see no evidence of any kind that these individuals should be listed as a terrorist organization and frankly, it has been a license to kill these people because the designation is the rational that the iraqi government uses to go in on the two assaults in 2009 and 2011 and quite frankly, we're
5:49 am
fearful that there will be an assault within the next couple of weeks because they've already blocked the rain road in or denying some of the u.s. officials access. we need to delist them. we need to get monitors there and need to live up to our promise. we promised personally, 3400 people, that the united states would protect them. and it's naive and morally bankrupt for us to think that we can continue to negotiate with 3400 lives at stake. >> alisyn: tom ridge, michael mukasey, gentlemen, thank you for coming in and bringing this to our attention, we hope you get a response soon. >> thank you, ali, thank you very much. >> alisyn: our next guest says the occupy wall street protests proves that the west is winning. why you shouldn't let your kids drink the kool-aid coming up. progressive. do you guys insure airstreams? yep. everything from travel trailers to mega motor homes. and when your rv is covered, so is your pet.

>> more arrests last night as thousands of occupy wall street protesters took over times square. our next guest says she saw the demonstrations coming. mary beth hicks is a columnist for the washington times and author of "don't let the kids drink the kool-aid". good morning to you, mary beth. >> good morning. >> dave: you weren't surprised by these occupy wall street protests. why not? >> i'm not. the book is basically a culmination of research done about our children's generation, my children's generation. essentially i believe we're looking at the first generation of america socialist. the left has so dominated their world view through the education system, their media, their pop culture, they really have only heard one note from the choir for quite a long time. it's kind of predictable that they kind of have this placard mentality about civics.
5:54 am
>> dave: don't parents teach their kids values? where is it coming from? you say perhaps the education system or the media? isn't it up to the parents to teach their kids important values? >> it is, it is. and i essentially admonish parents to pay closer attention to. i think the answer to everything the occupiers are campaigning about is a more virtuous society and virtuous people. they're decrying greed and corruption and nobody's for greed and corruption, you know, conservatives aren't, liberals aren't. but the answer to it is not collectism, the answer is morality. they don't want to be told that because virtue is hard. >> dave: do they have a point at that greed and corruption is a problem. that the 1% is not filtering down to the 99, but are they aiming that at the wrong source? >> they are, and the answer-- the solution isn't going to be some government solution. the solution is in we families raising kids who are virtuous, who are moral, who can then become part of the system for good. and so, the problem is that this generation that we're
5:55 am
seeing out there occupying is not -- they don't have the right values in place. >> dave: with that in mind, a recent development, i think thursday or friday we started seeing a group of parents, occupying wall street with their kids. >> right. >> dave: what does that say to you. >> that says the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. na tactffact what we know about this generation, uneducated with civics and economics and so are their parents and some of you are falling off civics lessons and not as engaged. parents would like life easier for their kids, but haven't done the work of giving kids that value system and hard work ethics that is going to be the solution. >> dave: the book is interesting "don't let the kids drink the kool-aid" we're not talking about sugary beverages. thank you for being here. >> great to be here. >> dave: ann coulter has a lot to say, as you can imagine, about these wall street
5:56 am

>> alisyn: good morning, everyone. it's sunday, october 16th. i'm alisyn camerota. my microphone is not working. dozens of wall street protesters arrested after clashing with police. they stormed the bank demanding their money and ann coulter is here with demands of her own for the protesters. thanks, mike. >> that's team work at its very finest, people. money, money, money, that's what they want. but some g.o.p. presidential candidates are rolling in the dough while others looking at a serious cash shortage. we'll break it down for you. >> dave: it's under way, a historic day as america honors one of its greatest heroes. we are live at the martin luther king jr. memorial dedication ceremony already under way. please join us for this last hour of a sunday "fox & friends."
6:01 am
>> alisyn: your lapel works like a charm. >> mike: i actually unplugged my mike so i wouldn't have to get close to her. >> dave: welcome to an uncomfortable couch here with mike, would clayton have done that? >> alisyn: of course, i can speak into clayton's lapel any time. >> dave: this is team work, people. very nice. >> mike: let's get to d.c., dedication ceremony for the dr. martin luther king jr. memorial right now. >> alisyn: kelly wright is there with the latest. what's happening right now? >> good morning to you. what's happening right now is the morning joy morning event has concluded but we still have wonderful musical background there with a choir on the stage
6:02 am
preparing for the next phase of this program. which will feature martin luther king iii, he'll speak as well as his sisters. that will happen during this dedication ceremony. and then the dedication ceremony will have president barack obama. that will take place at 11:00. i'll tell you, the atmosphere here is electric. a lot of people are reminiscing on dr. martin luther king jr., one of the best people who can do that is the reverend jesse jackson. i had the privilege and pleasure of talking to him moments ago before you came to me live discussing the very issue of walking and talking with his friend dr. martin luther king. here's how he remembers him. >> well, there is the dream, slave ships landed to this place 132 miles, to go from the building of ships to the statue erected between presidents jefferson and lincoln and washington, that's a big deal.
6:03 am
>> the dream keeps expanding. the dream in 1963 was in denial of public condemnation from texas across to florida, we couldn't use a single public toilet. we won that battle. the dream for the right to vote, we won that battle. the dream to be in the war in vietnam, eventually we won that war. but the end of poverty, illiteracy and disease, it keeps growing. >> and jesse jackson right there talking about the cycle of poverty keeps growing. he went on to say that he was the mayor, if you will, of resurrection city which was a city that was built after the death of martin luther king jr. they occupied the mall and actually occupied the city of washington d.c. right there at the mall, it rained on them. it became a tent city. but he wanted to talk about that legacy of how they were trying to campaign against poverty. something that was near and dear to dr. martin luther king jr.
6:04 am
but something he planned on doing himself. before i turn it back to you, you can hear the opening of the dedication of ceremony, i'll step out of the way and give it to you guys if you have any questions or want to move on with the program. this is all in full swing right now, the celebrate the dream legacy continues. the dedication continues. we'll be hearing from some wonderful performers this hour. >> ♪ by the dawn's early light ♪ ♪ what so proudly we hail ♪ at the twilight's last gleaming ♪ ♪ whose broad stripes and bright stars ♪ ♪ through the perilous fight ♪ o'er the ramparts we watched ♪ were so galiently streaming

>> alisyn: what a stirring, stirring rendition there of -- yes, yes, beautiful and such a nice day in washington, d.c. thank goodness everyone there has a beautiful day in which to commemorate martin luther king jr. >> dave: we'll take this ceremony live beginning in about 10 minutes. but first, we have some headlines. >> alisyn: we do, let's get right to your news. we have some new developments to share with you in the case of missing baby lisa irwin. police in kansas city are questioning a local homeless man named johnny tanco. he was reportedly doing odd jobs in irwin's neighborhood that night that lisa disappeared. he's being held on unrelated charges right now. police insist he is not a suspect. >> we wanted to talk to him no more or less than we did than somebody who lived two houses down. what the result of that was, i don't know. but really, i want to stress this guy is not a suspect. >> alisyn: the governor of missouri is now sending 25 members of the national guard to help find little lisa.
6:07 am
yesterday, police searched an abandoned home after receiving what seemed like a very important tip about diapers and a backpack that were found inside. but this morning, they're saying that tip turned out to be nothing. we will keep you posted, of course. and new this morning, israel releasing the names of hundreds of palestinian prisoners who are set to be freed later this week. israeli officials agreed to release the prisoners in exchange for hamas handing over another prisoner, the israeli soldier has been held captive in gaza for nearly five years now and is expected to be freed this tuesday. the numbers are in. a new campaign report shows how much money each g.o.p. presidential candidate has in his or her campaign fund at the moment. at the top is rick perry. he's reportedly raised $17.2 million even though he's been in the race the shortest amount of time. mitt romney comes in second with $14.2 million raised. newt gingrich comes in last. he's raised just $807,000.
6:08 am
the problem, he has reportedly spent $776,000 of it so far. i won't make you do math but that's a lot. u.s. soldiers coming home to the arms of loved ones. >> daddy, daddy. >> here they come. >> alisyn: you're looking at the 96 soldiers from the 744th engineering army reserve company. they arrived in utah on saturday. one girlfriend made a simple request to the love of her life. >> you fought at war, you've risked your life, your next mission, make me your wife. >> ok. ok. >> alisyn: that's how men respond to proposals. all right. the job in afghanistan went from moving roadside ied's, he's obviously a brave man in more ways than one. >> dave: man of few words, that's all. let's check in with rick reichmuth with a check of our weather. >> hey, guys.
6:09 am
nice day across the south. these are nice temperatures if they're summertime. break all kinds of records in the south. big changes are going to happen this week. we have some rain that's been consistent around parts of the great lakes and the rest of the eastern seaboard including d.c. looking absolutely beautiful. you see this down across parts of florida, very heavy day falling over the next few days. i'll show you that more in a second. this is the system pulling in across the pacific northwest and the northern rockies. doesn't look like much right now but take a look at what's going to happen over the next 48 to 36 hours, start to see some snow as this storm develops across parts of the rockies and the plains and some snow across the higher elevations, western side of nebraska, high plains, but as this gets going, by monday into tuesday, it's going to tap into this tropical moisture and a big mess once again in across the eastern seaboard, that means more flooding concerns in towards the northeast. ground that's so saturated. very heavy rain into florida and anywhere behind us, the temperatures really plummet. we'll be seeing temperatures in the 60's and 50's and 40's across the plains instead of 80's and 90's that we're seeing right now.
6:10 am
>> get the coats out. thank you so much, appreciate it. >> mike: yesterday, 74 of the wall street protesters arrested as they moved into times square from their lower manhattan location. and we want to get a take from ann coulter. good to see you. >> hello, good to be here. >> mike: they took it up a notch a little bit yesterday. >> yes, yes, very well organized and well thought out. they're protesting the banks, the big banks and the rich but they walk right past george soros' house to protest his neighbors, one of the koch brothers and rupert murdoch's apartment, two people that have nothing to do with wall street whatsoever. >> dave: but soros made billions in hedge funds. >> and through financial manipulation that made other people and countries poor. if you're going to protest, protest george soros. george soros is funding them. they're utterly brainless and they want their student loans,
6:11 am
you know, forgiven. >> dave: they want all debt forgiven. >> maybe i should protest the colleges and my professors' salaries but the professors didn't mention that when they were encouraging the protests the loans. you need the loan is because college tuition has gone up a million times in the last 30 years. >> alisyn: another thing curious about the protests in addition to their at the moment muddled message is the timing. they're angry at the bailouts for the big banks. well, a lot of people frankly are angry about that. that was three years ago. >> yes, yes. >> alisyn: why now? what has happened now that's the tipping point for this? >> i think obama's numbers are low, he couldn't rally his base and this is a good distraction. >> mike: will this work for him? >> it at least has distracted people from -- remember, that was all the news. that's all we were talking about, how his own base hated him. that's kind of out of the news and i'm actually surprised ,
6:12 am
don't underestimate democrats, but how much they have thrown their lot in with these protesters. i mean, even republicans, it took them about nine months to sorted of embrace the tea partiers and by the way, the tea partiers didn't want their support. but wow, obama, pelosi, al gore, all of them just jumping right in saying we are with the protesters. these brainless zombies. >> dave: and obama is clearly, the rhetoric going forward for 2012 is not just supporting them but a war against wall street, framing the g.o.p. as the party of wall street. here's the irony. we have the numbers that show president obama has actually received more money and it's not close from wall street institutions, from financial institutions, than any politician ever in u.s. history. so will that argument hold up that the republicans are the wall street party? does it hold up? >> never been the party of wall street. wall street is a street in manhattan. people -- and wall street bankers have places in the
6:13 am
hamptons. anyone that that describes is not a conservative. i mean, to the extent they even support republicans, they still want their illegal immigrant cheap labor, they want to trade with china. they could not care less about any of the social issues. wall street, it's like calling hollywood conservative. but somehow through, you know, movies like "wall street" republicans have gotten saddled with this group of liberals. >> mike: who is going to get the wall street money now? >> at best, republicans will get 50/50. when it's clear a republican is going to win, you know, they are immoral swine and they -- >> dave: mitt romney is getting it now. >> they will give to the likely winner but if they're falling their heart, it will go all to chuck schumer. >> alisyn: he's not running for president at the moment. >> he's a politician and was the number three. >> mike: he's number three on the list. >> alisyn: what's also complicated is it's hard for people to see how president
6:14 am
obama can insert himself into the message here of these protesters because timothy geithner is still his treasury secretary. >> dave: and bill daley is a bank guy and chief of staff. >> alisyn: right, these were wall street guys. >> no, it makes no sense and remember, bush let lehman brothers go under. what else do we have to do? obama comes in and throughout the 1990's, clinton kept bailing out goldman-sachs with russian bonds, mexican bonds, these were goldman-sachs' debtors. same thing with obama bailing out aig. that ends out bailing out. >> alisyn: great to see you. more "fox & friends" in two minutes. no matter what small business you are in, managing expenses seems to... get in the way. not anymore. ink, the small business card from chase introduces jot an on-the-go expense app made exclusively for ink customers.

6:17 am
>> i have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live
6:18 am
out the true meaning of its creed. >> alisyn: that's the speech that changed the country, of course, and our next guest helped reverend dr. martin luther king jr. write those words. >> dave: we're joined this morning by clarence jones, speechwriter, lawyer, political advisor and king's close friend. he's also the author of "behind the dream, the making of the speech that transformed a nation." boy, did it indeed. we know you're sorry that you couldn't be in d.c. this morning because of health reasons but we're thrilled to have you here. >> thank you so much. >> dave: you helped craft arguably the most important speech in american history. what are your thoughts? did you have any idea that almost 50 years later, it would still be fitting. >> first of all, the speech was dr. king's speech. all i did, together with stanley levinson was to provide some language, just the text that he might consider using. and he prepared the final text of the speech in his hotel suite
6:19 am
at the willard hotel. and i didn't know, in fact, what was going to be said until i actually heard him speak, you know, the following day. and when i listened to the speech, and i saw -- after he gave his, you know, prefunctory opening remarks, i said oh, my god, he's using the text that i suggested. that's only for the first opening nine paragraphs and as customary, he added his own material. >> alisyn: what was it like to hear that speech? to be there and to listen to your words and his coming to life through him? >> well, he -- i had had that experience before. and, of course, that experience was so unique because of the circumstance because of august 28, 1963, and as i said
6:20 am
in the book i wrote with stewart connolly, it was like capturing -- seeing it was like capturing lightning in a bottle. i had heard dr. king speak many times before. i had never, ever heard him speak that way with such electricity, with such passion before. it's as if -- as if there was an out-the-body experience, as if i were watching right before my eyes this person being transformed. there was a body speaking but the words were just -- were different. they were just electrifying. >> did you realize it was going to be so significant in that moment? >> i did not. as you know, what we call the celebrated "i have a dream speech" was not the speech that was written. that was completely spontaneous. yes. after he was in the process of reading the speech including the
6:21 am
text we just talked about, his favorite gospel singer mahalya jackson who had sang on the podium earlier, she interrupts him and says tell them about the dream, martin. tell them about the dream. and i watched him and he took -- he acknowledged hearing her. he took the text of the speech, moved it slightly to the podium, grabbed the podium and looked out and i said to the person standing next to me, whoever that was and i said these people don't know it but they're about ready to go to church. i could see, i was watching his body language and i could see that his body language, he was transforming from just being a speaker into a -- a baptist preacher and it was extraordinary. he had used the phrase "i have a dream" in june at a speech in cobalt hall. it had been a phrase that he had used at other speeches. but he had never put it together this way. and when i was talking with the
6:22 am
preacher about this and they said, you know, clarence, we tonight have any evidence of this. i mean, i said i'm telling you, this is what actually occurred. and i was -- and i had a colleague of mine, a business colleague of mine in california who likes to listen to audio books and she said to me, she said, clarence, you should really listen to the audio book of ted kennedy and i said why? because he describes virtually verbatim what you describe. >> alisyn: oh, my gosh. you were there and you witnessed it with your own eyes and ears. well, clarence jones, please stick around because we want your insights and perspectives throughout this whole ceremony. we'd like to go now live to washington to listen into julian bond, a leader in the civil rights movement and introducing the king family. >> presence in our neighborhood. i was not far from him on the washington mall on that magic day in august when he delivered his famous speech. it's hard now to summarize all
6:23 am
that he meant to us when he was alive and how great our loss is now upon his death. the true measure of any man is how his message continues on. after he's passed from this scene. we have very recent proof that martin luther king meets that starnld. -- standard. this year's 32-year-old yemeni winner of the nobel peace prize said just last week, martin luther king inspired me, most because he saw change peacefully. al also, gaupdy and nelson mandela but really to the largest extent is martin luther king. we tried to use change using the same methods. king's message resonates in far away yemen and everywhere around the world. just as it stirred millions of us and continues to do so today. since he died, a constant question i've received whenever a racial advance occurred was, what would dr. king have said about this? what would he say when america
6:24 am
elected its first black president? would he think this achievement was a confirmation of his dream? would he say that these things would not have happened if he had not lived? i've always felt he'd be pleased, whenever any element of racial progress occurred but he wouldn't think that nirvana had come and he wouldn't try to claim credit for everything and this is what i think he would want us to say today, what he said at his last sermon. he'd say, i'd like somebody to mention that day that martin luther king jr. tried to give his life serving others. i'd like for somebody to say that day, that martin luther king jr. tried to love somebody. i want you to say that day, that i tried to be right on the war question. i want you to say that day, that i did try to feed the hungry. i want you to be able to say that day, that i did try in my life to clothe those who were naked and i want you to say on that day, that i did try in my life to visit those who were in prison. i want you to say that i tried
6:25 am
to love and serve humanity. yes, if you want to say i was a drum major, say i was a drum major for justice. say that i was a drum major for peace. i was a drum major for righteousness. racial equality, economic justice, world peace, those were the themes that occupied dr. king's life. they've occupied the lives of his family members, three of whom are with us today. here to tell us of their father and brother, are dr. king's eldest son, martin luther king iii, daughter and youngest child, reverend bernice king and dr. christine king ferris, martin luther king's sister, the last surviving member of that generation of the family. now, let us welcome dr. christine king ferris. [applause]
6:26 am
>> we love you! >> thank you. thank you, mr. bond, king family, alpha by alpha and martin luther king's dedication staff, all and all of you assembled here today. i stand before you today as the person who knew martin luther king jr. longer than anyone now alive. in fact, i was there in our home the day that he was born on january 15, 1929. he was my little brother and i
6:27 am
watched him grow and develop into a man who was destined for a very special kind of greatness. it's been quite a journey from that cold january day more than 82 years ago on down to today when i first laid my eyes on my baby brother. now, i'm standing here alongside an african-american president at the dedication of the martin luther king jr. memorial on the national mall. during my life, i've witnessed a baby become a great hero to humanity, who provides hope and inspiration for freedom loving people everywhere. so i just want to say to all of
6:28 am
the young people coming up, great dreams can come true and america is a place where you can make it happen. and i know that our president will agree with me on this. it wasn't far from here where my brother martin told america about his great dream for our country on this day 48 years ago, the dream of justice, equality and brotherhood he shared with us on that sweltering august afternoon. it's really the heart and soul of the american dream. it's what this country must always be about. so we can light the way forward to a new era of peace and
6:29 am
prosperity for all people in all nations and i remember another lovely afternoon in 1983 when another president of the united states signed into law a bill to name my brother's birthday a federal holiday. that, too, was a day of hope and heali healing. i don't think my brother's legacy could get much larger. but i was wrong because here i am overjoyed and humbled to see this great day when my brother martin takes his symbolic place on the national mall.
6:30 am
on this national mall near america's greatest presidents including abraham lincoln, thomas jefferson, and franklin roosevelt. this is just overwhelming. my brother was never one to seek great honors. in fact, he was self-effacing and he was amazed and humbled to receive the nobel prize for peace back in 1964. i want to thank the fraternity for having the vision, commitment and determination to conceive this project and to see it through. by honoring martin luther king jr. with such a wonderful statue
6:31 am
on the national mall, you have ensured that his legacy will provide a source of inspiration for people from all over the world for generations to come. my brother was an alpha himself. and he was deeply proud of his fraternity brothers when they came to the aid of our nonviolent, freedom's struggle again and again with urgently needed contributions and volunteers support and now against all odds, you have built this beautiful monument which brings honor to our country and hope to coming generations. and in closing, i want to thank each of you for joining us
6:32 am
today. your presence is also an affirmation of my brother's legacy and the great blessing of diversity in america. bless this wonderful day mark another step towards the fulf l fulfillment of the dream. and let all hearts be joined together as we move forward into the future, united and determined to create the beloved community in america and throughout the world. i thank you. [applause]
6:33 am
>> please welcome reverend bernice king. >> i certainly thank god for the presence of our aunt, mrs. christine king farris. good morning, everybody. >> good morning! >> thank you for joining us today as we dedicate this monument to a man of inspiring vision and transformative action, my father, dr. martin luther king jr. it's been a long time coming. the vision of my father's fraternity alpha phi alpha to
6:34 am
build a monument, establishment of a king memorial foundation led by mr. harry johnson and 11 staff persons, an act of congress, 10 years of fundraising and a lot of hard work, an earthquake and a hurricane but today, we are here! and thank god we are here. it is a great time of celebration and the entire king family is proud to witness this day. i am especially proud to stand here as one of the four children to who my father referred to as he resounded the american dream that one day we would live in a nation where we would not be judged by the color of our skin but by the content of our character. today represents another milestone in the life of america. this is a day that all americans
6:35 am
can be proud of and may i remind you that this is not just the celebration for african-americans but for americans and citizens around this world. and no doubt, today, the world celebrates with us. today, our nation acknowledges its growth again for this memorial represents the stair step beyond its laws of segregation, it symbolizes that a black preacher prophet from the south affected a social change that helps to redeem the soul of america. and i want to express my gratitude to each person, each organization, each corporation, each entity that contributed to what we see here today from its conception to its realization. however, we would be remiss if
6:36 am
we did not also recognize and honor the life and legacy of my mother, mrs. coretta scott king. for left after the assassination of my father to raise us four children, my mother also with her dedicated and tireless efforts raised a nation in our father's teachings and values. it was vitally important for her that his life, words and principles become institutionalized and so she spearheaded the efforts even as a grieving widow to establish the king center in atlanta as the official living memorial to martin luther king jr. and then went on to champion a national holiday commemorating our father's birthday and a host of
6:37 am
other efforts. so in many respects, she paved the way and made it possible for a man who was the most hated man in america in 1968, to now be one of the most revered and loved men in the world. so that we might be able to build a monument in his honor. thank you, mama, for your dedication! thank you, mama, for your sacrifice and we as your children are glad that we were able to share our parents with the world so that we could be in a better place. but she did not just institutionalize, his words, his principles so we could only remember him, but also, so we could be propelled into action, utilizing his philosophy and strategies of nonviolence.
6:38 am
it's no accident that the official dedication could not occur on august 28th, the anniversary of the "i have a dream" speech. although fully powerful, prophetic and passionate and one of the most well known speeches around this world, could it be, perhaps, that the dedication not taking place on the anniversary of that great speech is indicative of god wanting us to move forward, to look at the rest of the kings. as we survey the current events and global cries for an alleviation of poverty and economic oppression, we are being pulled from the familiar place and the comfort place of our "i have a dream" to focusing on another aspect of dr. king's life. perhaps, the postponement was a
6:39 am
divine interruption to remind us of the king that moved us beyond the dream of racial justice, to the action and work of economic justice. perhaps, god wanted to remind us that 43 years ago when our father was taken from us, that he was in the midst of starting a poor people's campaign where he was galvanizing poor people from all walks of life to converge on this nation's capital and stay here and occupy this place until there was change in the economic system and a better distribution of wealth. perhaps god wanted us to move beyond the dream into action and maybe we were unable to dedicate this monument on august 28th just because of that and he's
6:40 am
saying to us, it's time to readjust. in fact, over 43 years ago, he told us that we must become justice to certain social ills. we should never adjust to the 1% controlling more than 40% of the wealth. we should never adjust to an unprecedented number of people being unemployed. we should never adjust to any person being without health care because they cannot afford it. we should never adjust to an increase of people moving into poverty. we should never adjust to violence of any form, bullying or being bullied. we should never adjust to policy and practices that profile people because of their color, their ethnicity or their nation of origin. we should never adjust to a
6:41 am
judicial system that allows us to take a life when guilt is in question. and so as we dedicate this monument, i can hear my father saying that oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever, the yearning for freedom eventually manifest itself as we dedicate this monument, i hear my father saying, what we are seeing now all across the streets of america and the world is a freedom explosion. the deep rumbling of discontent that we hear today is the thunder of disinherited masses rising from the dungeons of oppression to the bright hills of freedom. i hear my father saying as we protest, though, we must conduct ourselves on a higher plane of
6:42 am
dignity and discipline. i hear my father saying, we must have a radical revolution of values and a reordering of our priorities in this nation. i hear my father saying as we dedicate this monument, we must rapidly begin the shift from a fame oriented society to a person oriented society. i hear my father saying, one of the great liabilities of our history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. every society, he said, has its protectors of the status quo and its fraternity of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolution. but today, he said, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new
6:43 am
ideas, to remain vigilant, and to face the challenge of change. these words, dripping with truth and conviction as much now as they were when originally spoken could, if we allow them, propel us into action. action that responds to the discontent of the disinherited. conveying that we stand together in seeking a distributed inheritance for all. action that reflects our commitment to not allowing a focus on gaining things, to deter us from compassionately engaging people. action that reverberates with a common desire for the manifestation of freedom. action that resonates with the discontented masses supporting social change and demonstrating that we are alert during this
6:44 am
time of economic revolution and so i say in closing, let us walk together, children, and not get weary. let us work together, children, and not get weary. let us struggle together, children, and not get weary. let us hold on together, children, and not get weary. let us fight but get over it together, children, and not get weary. but most of all, we must pray together, children, or we will get weary. and one day, we'll all be able to say -- free at last. free at last. thank god almighty, we are all free at last! god bless you. [applause] >> please welcome martin luther king iii accompanied by andrea king and yolanda renee king.
6:45 am
>> first, let me thank god for the opportunity to be here on this day that many in our nation would say is the sabbath day. to each and every dignitary here, and i would say that's everybo everybody, but to especially brother harry johnson and his staff for the tireless work to make this memorial a reality, we
6:46 am
firstly thank you. also, to the martin luther king foundation board and its share, to each and every contributor, every corporation but, perhaps most of all to the masses of americans who chose to contribute to this effort that would not be here but by the contributions of men and women and families. so we thank each of you and every one of you on behalf of my wife, andrea and our daughter, yolanda renee, we say thank you. today, we've come to participate in this unveiling ceremony to my father and celebrate his legacy. let us not forget that he paid the ultimate price for our civil rights. he was a champion of human
6:47 am
rights and social justice for all people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or nationality. we must stand up for social and economic justice. 48 years ago, my father stood in this vicinity in the shadows of the lincoln memorial and gave a speech that was to resonate around the world. he said that he had a dream that was faith in ourselves and in our country, we will be able to come out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope, that with faith we would be able to transform the discourse of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood and sisterhood that with faith, we would be able to work together, stand up for freedom together, knowing that one day, we would all be free. >> right. >> i repeat his words because i
6:48 am
believe that it's important to emphasize that while it's great to have this memorial to his memory and it's great to have a national holiday and it's great to have streets and schools and hospitals named in his honor all over our nation and world, it is also important to not place too much emphasis on martin luther king, the idol, but not enough emphasis on the ideals of martin luther king jr. so while we commemorate his memory today with this great memorial, let us not confuse nor forget what he stood for and died for. the young people around this nation organizing a very interesting but let us not forget the ideal he gave his life for, peace, equality, jobs,
6:49 am
education, nonviolence, decent housing and an end to war. the young people of the occupy movement, all over this country and throughout the world are seeking justice. justice for the employed searching for months for jobs and those among them haven't given up in despair. justice for working class people bearing making it. justice for middle class folks who aren't able to pay their mortgages. justice for elders terrified that they're losing the value of their savings and their health care. justice for the young people who graduate from college, are unemployed and burdened by student loans they cannot repay. justice for everyone who are simply asking the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share. you see, sometimes we get caught up in the brand of my father but we forget to focus on the
6:50 am
beliefs of my father. we must stand up for social and economic justice. we as a people in this country have lost our love force, our true force. as a matter of fact, you can make this argument that we have ultimately lost our souls. we've lost our souls when i see that a 40-year-old, 49-year-old black man james craig anderson was brutally murdered in mississippi not in 1963 but in june of 2011. we've lost our souls when i see children bullying other children and young teenagers killing each other. we've lost our souls when prisons are a growth industry as the prisons are filled every day with more people than any other industrialized nation, there are more black and brown folks in prison than in college. that must change. >> yes, yes, yes! >> we've lost our souls when the united states supreme court, the supreme law of the land
6:51 am
decided in brown vs. the entertainment association to strike down the law that regulates the sale of violent video games to children. we've lost our souls when 30 years of failed public policy have reduced regressive tax breaks for the rich while breaking the backs of the poor. unions and the middle class, sending the country and world into an economic crisis. we've lost our souls when we continue to fight two wars that have cauost us $3 trillion and cost thousands of american lives, iraqi lives and others. we must stand up for social and economic justice. i know we're here to celebrate the life of my father and commemorate my father but we need to try to live like him, to love like him, and to care like him.
6:52 am
yes, my father had a dream. it was a dream that he said was deeply embedded in the american dream. the problem is the american dream of 50 years ago was two cars, a house, two kids and a dog named spot has turned into a nightmare for millions. for millions of americans, there is no house because they have no jobs and therefore can't give their kids the proper tools to prepare them for a better life than they had. so i submit that we need a new american dream, a dream of interconnectedness, a dream of mutual purpose, a dream of caring and being responsible for each other. we need to live up to the promise sketched out into that magestically hailed and that statue that we call the statue of america. which says "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to break free." we need to understand that none of us are free until all of us can be free.
6:53 am
we need to have a new spirit of cooperation in this country based on love, respect and sensitivity to the least of these among us. that is what my father wanted for this country. while i am proud of this great memorial to my father, i hope it will serve as a catalyst for us to adopt his ideals and beliefs and renewals of decency, sensitivity and love. love he so often talked about. we must stand up for that justice because now is the time for all human kind and for america, this is our chance. this is our opportunity to show the world of our greatness, to throw off the shackles of all of the conservative policies that exclude masses of people.
6:54 am
we must finally get rid of racism. today at this great moment in our collective history, i ask you to join me to stand up for justice and social unrest everywhere, we must build a brighter day for everyone and create the opportunities for people to once again acquire wealth. >> that's right. >> and therefore, we will ultimately triumph over those triple evil of poverty, racism and ernabel demilmilitarism tha championed often. let us celebrate our legacy and let us celebrate dad's life and let us live as dr. king envisioned when he described how all of our destinies are tied together, we're linked together i can't be what i ought to be until you're what you ought to be and you can't be what you ought to be until i'm what i ought to be because our destinies are tied together is what he said.
6:55 am
and so america today, let us meet the challenge to embrace and become what we know we must become. and that is the beloved community. so no matter how far we have to go, we probably do have a long way to go. it may get worse before it gets better. do not get any way tired because we have truly come much too far from where we started. you see, nobody ever told any of us that our roads would be easy but i know our god, our god, our god did not bring any of us this far to leave us. thank you so much. and god bless each and every one of you always. [applause] >> alisyn: we've been listening to the speakers there, martin loo luther king jr.'s children. we'll bring in a frenld of mlk and a speechwriter. what do you think as you listen to the speeches today? >> i think the speeches are obviously very appropriate for
6:56 am
the moment. the one thing that i think should be emphasized more but this is as i'm listening is the question of the importance, the urgency of violence, that is the recognition of how critical nonviolence is to our ability to do any of those things that they're talking about. violence is the threat, take occupying wall street, well intentioned and you know, many of the objectors, many of the complaints are very legitimate but unless that movement is totally committed to nonviolence, they'll undermine their ability to attract a broad base of people who would otherwise support them. it's interesting, i was just watching on television is that it just takes, i guess, some
6:57 am
people in rome that may have been about 400 or 500 people in rome who apparently were responding to the occupy wall street movement here but their response was to go and burn cars and so forth. and if you really want to pay a lasting tribute to martin luther king jr., his lasting legacy is an unshakeable commitment to nonviolence. nonviolent pursuit of excellence, nonviolent conflict resolution to improve the quality of life. violence will only destroy and undermine the most well intentioned objectors. >> dave: since his untimely death in 1968, has there been anyone like martin luther king? >> no. to answer a simple question. i haven't answered that, i guess, it's been said over and
6:58 am
over again and i said who -- when somebody asked me that question, i said dr. king is one of a kind, he's unique, so i'll ask you today, who today is most like maya angelou, shakespeare, no one. >> mike: no one has his integrity, right? >> thank you. that's correct. no one has his integrity and his commitment and his moral leadership. his commitment to nonviolence, the pursuit of personal excellence and the commitment to personal responsibility for your conduct is unshakeable. >> mike: personal responsibility. going back to the late 60's, we would watch this on tv, before you kids were alive. how did he commit to that nonviolence when african-americans are being beaten, hit with water cannons, dogs sicked on them.
6:59 am
they were being lynched in the 60's. how did he stick to it? >> he stuck to it because first of all, he reminded a lot of people he was a minister of the gospel before he was the civil rights leader. and dr. king had a profound belief in his god. he had a profound belief in the teachings of his lord jesus christ. love. his belief was that not withstanding the violence that may be perpetrated against you, that basically you had to have the capacity to love the person who was perpetrating the violence against you. you had to have the capacity to endure the injustice that was being perpetrated against you. to have the capacity to show that your endurance could be greater than the capacity of the person that perpetrated against you. >> mike: we need to get back to that. thank you for being here. >> alisyn: been so nice to spend this time with you.
