3:02 am
anniversary i hate to use that word that's what happened 33 years ago on friday may 25th, 33 years ago, he came forward and confessed. he was on a video link from belleview memorial psychiatric facility where is he undergoing psychiatric tests right now. he couldn't appear in a court but he was arraigned and now charged wearing orange jumpsuit standing there and his attorney is saying he has a history here of skits friendia, bipolar disorder, among other problems. >> the timing of this gives you kills, if was a friday he was allowed to walk to the bus station alone. city looked for him for decades. this guy pedro hernandez, his family says he actually had confessed. he had said things to them as early as the 1980s, he said i did something bad to a child in new york. but they didn't know
3:03 am
exactly -- they didn't want to turn him in. he was their brother first of all and they didn't know exactly what he was referring to. >> he according to some family members said the words "i killed a young boy in new york." he apparently told family members as well as some people at a religious retreat that alisyn is referring to in the 1980s. now, his wife, he was married. his wife said he never confessed to me, if he would have i would have turned him in. interesting may 25th, of course, national missing children's day. that was inspired by the disappearance of etan patz. >> then he became -- you want to say something about the photo. >> this is his current wife named rosemary and his daughter becky there screen left. they are obviously, you know, in hell. i mean as a result of all of this. chirch pass tore describes how they have been crying. >> in the state of new -- a
3:04 am
confession in new york is not enough. person may not be convicted of any offense solely upon the confession. the issue here is that northwestern university in march of this year, just -- it's interesting that they did this study in march of this year. and they looked at the number of wrongful convictions. and what they found is that over half of them came as a result of bogus confessions. that it's not because of a d.n.a. test they were able years later to do a d.n.a. test. over half of them came from somebody saying you know what? i killed someone. >> because of various reasons. some could be what we have here mental illness. it could also be a coerced or forced confession. >> by police, exactly. >> thereby the new york law that prevents that from being enough to prosecuted someone. so this guy may not be prosecuted. now, is he probably going to spend his time in psychiatric hospitals,. >> but why? >> he may not go to jail? >> why wouldn't he be prosecuted? >> no evidence. not a shred. >> they do say that the fact
3:05 am
that in the 1980s he had started to talking about it and tell his family members that he had done something bad is good corroborating evidence that could be used in this trial. >> there was a police report taken from that week that day he was at this little store, this little bodega where etan was that day. there was physical proof that he was physically there near etan. >> speaking of which, the cover of the "new york post" eerie because the father of etan patz, his parents still live on this block. they never moved. they never changed their phone number. they waited foray ton to come back. the father in just a day after etan went missing. snapped this picture. i don't know if you can see it clearly. it is the corner. and that is the bodega, the back drop there is the store where pedro hernandez worked. the father of course unknowingly took the picture of the bus stop. that's the corner. this is great evidence of the scene of the crime police now say.
3:06 am
>> he didn't know he was taking this photo in the basement of that very sandwich shop, it's in the background of the photo is where his son, of course, eventually was allegedly killed at this point. we don't entirely know all the details. what's the key to this whole case? it appears the key is what did pedro hernandez tell police that wasn't in the newspapers? right, the stuff that we all know about. it's the stuff that he was able to say to police little things that we never knew about as the public that the police are still sitting on because they don't want to give this information out. this is the key to the case. >> later in the show we have pat brown on. she criminal profiler to try to figure out why he would snap like this and what he has said to police to obviously make sure this never happens again to another child. meanwhile, let's get to your other headlines. we have a lot to tell you about right now. brand new reports of a u.s. drone strike overnight that have killed three suspected militants in pakistan. this happened in waziristan a known hot bed for muslim extremists. this is the third strike

probably some kind of organized crime connection. the government may be saying today we are unaware and notice those words are very carefully chosen. we are unaware of anything happening to the people whose information was taken. that doesn't mean that t hasn't happened. if i'm one of those people on the list, i would be checking my credit. >> and the people who are on that list, everybody affected by this cyber attack, should expect a letter soon, containing some more details and some information with fraud consultation and credit counseling. back to you in new york. >> unbelievable. thanks, peter. as wired magazine put it a few weeks ago we have all been hacked. we better get used to it. >> that's a way to come-to-look at it, isn't it. >> yes. >> coming up on the show, democrats are trying to resurrect the so-called war on women. will painting the g.o.p. as anti-women really work? >> plus, is united airlines antifamily? a new policy will have you shelling out more cash just so you can stay with your

100 miles by running 100 miles, i think it would scare me and i don't think i would want to run 100 miles. the bulk of my training has been cross fit. so i work out cross fit great gym. strength coaches that put me in the right frame of mind and get my body in shape for this. >> you run about the distance of a marathon to prepare for this. >> correct. >> think doubts you will make it the full 100 miles. we see here flipping over tires with the weighted vest. >> get yourself in the right frame of mind. focus not only raising $100,000 for the september 11th memorial and museum. the marine corps scholarship foundation as well as the disposable harris project. >> and dakota scholarship. >> part of the marine corps scholarship foundation. but to raise the level of awareness that we need to give to our troops who endured so
3:46 am
much stress and all this stuff in battle and still endure all this stress and still earn battle now is wounded warriors. >> came against some numbers recently. close to 1500 service members who have lost one or multiple limbs during iraq or afghanistan. it's estimated that there is going to be hundred thousand service members who suffer from post-traumatic stress and brain injury. those numbers to me were staggering. i felt you need to step up because these are the men and women post 9/11 who stepped up and said raise your hand and said i'll do it. i will go to iraq. i goal to afghanistan. i will fight this it fight against the global war on terror. that's our responsibility as americans to support them and take care of them because they are the ones who put themselves in the face of danger. we need to support them. >> we absolutely do. brian gallagher, thank you for your service. >> thank you, sir. >> tell folks how you can

>> this is the kind of thing that makes people hate to fly. the airlines now want to charge you $25 if you want to sit next to your child on a flight. [ laughter ] >> did you see this? like on a crowded flight they can't guarantee seat assignments but for an additional $25 you might be able to sit next to your child. [ laughter ] >> how about this? how about an extra 25 bucks for a sober pilot? i would pay for that or air traffic controller stays awake. or tsa agent who doesn't grab you. i would pay for that. >> yeah. >> better jokes would have been how about to not pay to sit next to your kids. >> pay $25 to sit with somebody else. >> that's another option. you may not be laughing when you hear about policy changes. if you are flying somewhere this summer with your family. be prepared to spend more money to sit with your kids and preboard with your kids
3:52 am
fliers rights.org and she joins to us talk about this when you heard this week, kate, what was your response? >> well, nice way it to tear families apart when they fly especially if you are headed to disney. can you imagine having your 2-year-old in a middle seat in a different row than you are. >> alisyn: let's crazy. let's explain why dosses more. the arlings are now going to charge you a premium if you want to have a window or an aisle seat so families who can't afford to pay more may have to all split up and be scattered around the airplane. how is that going to work? have the airlines thought through this that a child will be many rows away from their parents? >> i don't think they thought through it at all. in fact, what they are actually doing in addition to charging more is withholding the ability to book some of those aisle and window seats for business travelers and only five days before the flight they start releasing
3:53 am
some of those seats for the regular traveler that doesn't have a lot of frequent flier miles or doesn't travel with that airline regularly. so it's a very antifamily provision and i think it's going to back fire. i think if i were seated next to someone else's 2-year-old, and the parent wasn't there to help that child it, would be a very awkward experience not only for the family not sitting together but for the people sitting next to them. >> you can imagine? i'm picturing this happening. my 2-year-old son. sorry son i will see you later. sitting here next to kate. >> here is a bottle. >> here is your battle. >> you can handle it. it seems absolutely absurd. >> it is absolutely absurd. when you are boarding, imagine not only being the family trying to negotiate getting on the plane at the same time other passengers with infant seat. buckle the kid and you have to sit in a different row? and can i imagine the gridlock that's going to happen inside
3:54 am
planes with that provision. it's a two-for. we had two antifamily provisions in one week on united. >> second one you are referring to is the preboarding status that the airlines are change the long-held practice of families being able to pre-board. now the airlines are reserving that just for their sort of premium members, their frequent fliers. here is what united airlines had to say about that our practice of calling families early who did not have elite boarding status caused more confusion than less. we made the change to simplify the boarding process and working according to plan. your response? >> my response is that is bogus. anybody who has small children and all the things that go with small children knows it takes extra time to get settled, to get everything in the overhead bins, get your child all the things they are going to need to settle them down during the flight it's a process. most other air carriers, thank goodness, have not made such
3:55 am
an antifamily provision. it's ridiculous. i think we are going to see shear gridlock inside of airplanes now. >> they are looking at their bottom line saying it makes more sense for us to cater to our business customers than we see day in and day out than the family whom we see once a year on a business trip. >> thanks so much for coming in with your perspective on this. you are from fliers rights.orgs we need them. >> let us know how you feel about this on twitter. would you pay extra to sit with the kids on the flight. would you do the reverse and pay to have the kids sit with other folks. >> president obama is offering up financial advice to children. should they be heeding his ad vice considering the country's debt level? one g.o.p. lawmaker doesn't think so. we will tell you the jokes is he making about this. >> one memorable graduation speech. the student speaker getting down on one knee at first i

>> good morning, everyone. it is saturday, may 26th. i'm alisyn camerota. decades after a little boy vanished from the streets of new york. we are finally learning chilling new details about what happened that day. we'll tell you about the man who is confessing to the crime and what he says he did to etan patz. >> and he helped the cia track down and kill usama bin laden and now that pakistani doctor is being sentenced for treason by his own country. why critics say the obama administration is not doing enough to help. >> >> plus, could nascar's military sponsorship come to a screeching halt? congress now trying to put the
4:00 am
brakes on funding. fox sports broadcaster and nascar legend darryl waltrip joins us to talk about that and more. "fox & friends" hours number two starts right now. ♪ >> happy memorial day weekend, everyone. welcome to "fox & friends." thanks so much for waking up with us. maybe you are heading out on the road today. 30 million people expected to hit the roads this holiday weekend. that's uptick from last year. 400,000 more people hitting the road this year than last year which is good news. gas prices have plummeted quite a bit. >> you hit the road clayton and i will be here on the curvey couch through monday. are you going to get out and do your 50 plus miles which is what he is referring to. >> yeah. i'm going to do 50 plus miles. everybody get out of my way. get off of i-95 please. meanwhile, we have to tell you some updates in the story, of course, that has gripped the country and that is what happened to etan patz?
4:01 am
the timing is chilling. the day that this new suspect was arraigned was 33 years to the day. it was the friday before memorial day that etan patz headed out to the bus stop 33 years ago for the first time ever his parents let him go by himself and he disappeared. >> as you know now 51-year-old pedro hernandez has confessed to the killing 33 years ago. he was arraigned on second degree murder charges on friday. his lawyer says he suffers from many psychological problems, including bipolar disorder, schizophrenia hallucinations and buried in the stories about him is he also suffers, he also has h.i.v. what will happen to him though is probably the most interesting part to me personally. he may not go to jail because a conviction is just -- excuse me a confession is not enough for a conviction here in new york state. >> this is the most interesting part of this whole case as well. new york state criminal code basically says that a pepper may not be convicted of any crime or offense solely upon
4:02 am
evidence of a confession or admission made by him without additional proof that the offense charge has been committed. that the is criminal code in the state of new york. it's hard to know actually because northwestern university, i referred to this earlier, in march did a study on wrongful convictions, which happened quite a bit. turns out over half of wrongful convictions in this country turn out to be because of confessions. so the cops, whether it's coerced by the cops or whether it's not, these folks end up behind bars and some cases 17 years they turn out that they were just lying about their confession all along. >> by the way, there was a different suspect who for years police believed actually did. he was incarcerated a convicted pedophile. he was a drifter. he was a former boyfriend of one of etan patz' babysitters that's how police linked jose ramos. the "new york post" thought the police really missed some golden opportunities 33 years ago. basically what happened at that time there was no
4:03 am
centralized data base like there is now. there was no center of national missing children. >> or d.n.a. data base. >> things have changed. hundreds of police officers who dedicated their career to cracking this case. apparently they weren't working in concert with each other and they missed this guy who was known as having a short fuse and being angry guy who worked at this bodega. >> right next to the bus stop. what else was missed maybe not missed but turned over to the police several family members knew that something happened regarding pedro martinez in the 1980s he confessed he even told people i did something bad i killed a young kid in new york. told family members this and told other members of a religious retreat in the '80s no one turned that over to police. there is one family member that says he confessed to police but was dismissed because he was, quote, too crazy. we don't know if that was officially confession but that is from a family member.
4:04 am
>> it is eerie when you pick up the post this morning. here is the cover photo. what you see is the building in the background. bus stop in the foreground. this photo was snapped by etan's father and he took it just right around the time that etan went missing. what he didn't know when he snapped this photo, he just thought he was taking the bus stop photo is that photo behind is the sandwich shop. it's the little bodega where pedro hernandez worked and where he says he ended up killing etan. he snaps this photo of the bus stop lo and behold in the basement in the building behind is where his son was killed. >> national children missing day inspired by the disappearance. >> later we have pat brown on a criminal profiler and what all parents want to know, is this somebody who just snaps? there are there any warning signs to see these people out in the general public? all he says, this is what he says, i had an urge to kill
4:05 am
that day. >> we should say the main point, the crux of this entire thing comes down to what he told police that wasn't in the newspapers. you couldn't just pick up the newspaper and read at the time. he told them something that only the police knew, that's the key. that's the key to his confession. >> psychologically also interesting is that the parents never moved. 33 years they stayed in the exact same spot. >> they were waiting foray tan to come back. let's get to the other headlines and see what's making news today. calls for iranian officials to answer for higher enrichment of uranium that has been found at a plant in iran. the finding could mean the country has moved closer to reaching the uranium threshold needed to arm nuclear missiles. tehran has reportedly said that a technical glitch is to blame but the report comes at a time when iran has been criticized for being uncooperative in negotiations over its nuclear program. nebraska family captures this terrifying twister right before it completely destroys their home. brian hecken balk and his wife

this is hurting our ability to go forward to bring people into the system for people like me to go out and find people like the doctor to give us the key information that makes a difference. this made a huge difference. this helped us get to where we needed to be. the fact that the pakistanis who failed to do it are after this guy now is indicative of the fact that they still are playing both sides against the other. the white house should have been on this once panetta admitted this guy helped us. >> trickling out effort made by doctor pakistan ahead of this. i'm interested in moving forward and what you write about on your opinion piece on fox foxnews.com. how likely are we to get the next guy down the line to help us provide some of this information? >> well, that's the key. we have signals intelligence, wiretapping, imagery intelligence looking at things. satellites and imagery. the key thing here is we have

4:25 am
on your screen right now this is why getting a screening so necessary. every year some 30,000 u.s. men die from prostate cancer. psa screenings can detect prostate cancer in its earliest stages for psa test to save one man's life from prostate cancer 1,000 must be screened. that's what the government panel said this week. it costs money you have to screen 1,000 men to find one man that has prostate cancer that was their reasoning behind. this you think that is bologna. >> listen, clayton, what's the price of saving someone's life? one life who has a person who has a wife who has children. that's what makes the healthcare in this country so great because we're spending money to save lives. so to say that, you know, you don't need to screen, i think it's very very irresponsible look at the data. 30,000 men still die in 2011. one out of six men has prostate cancer. this is a serious topic.

sings the invention of psa in the last two decades. 40% reduction in mortality or death. we don't see a lot of men in our hospital with bone spread or bone metastases or those type of things. >> why are not men not getting this? is it because they are scared of getting it. >> women, when the task force said no mammogram came in the age of 50. you saw what happened. everyone came out and talked about it. men, we don't want to be bothered with. this the scary part about this is that men will say to their wives, you know what? u.s. task force is saying you don't need to test, let's just go home. we don't want to talk about. this we are a different species. >> men look for excuse not to get t and this government task torres didn't help things men get out there and get your screening. >> the truth is, clayton, not every elevated psi means biopsy not every biopsy means surgery or radiation. this whole fear tactic that you are going to be incontinent for the rest of your life that's bogus. find yourself a good doctor a

5:00 am
"fox & friends" hour three starts right now. >> good morning, it's memorial day weekend. i survived the formation from the national guard. we didn't yet show it we will show it later in the program. with bayonets flying right by your face and your ear and other parts. >> we were wondering if the rifles were loaded and if they were actually sharpened bayonets on the front of it. >> yes. they touch one right up to your nose just to let you know they are sharp. >> a little nic here. >> that's a sticker from my son. my daughter. >> they gave you happy face. >> let's tell you the developments in the top story today. that is what happened to little etan patz 33 years ago. the timing is really unbelievable and will give you goose bumps the fact that
5:01 am
someone was arrested and charged on the very day, the friday before memorial day that 33 years ago etan baits disappeared this man has now been charged with the murder. >> interestingly that very fact that you mentioned t was an anniversary of his death could also be a reason why prosecutors in this case could be a little skeptical and you can't just roll over and say this thing is case closed solved as some the newspapers have said in the past week. because in the state of new york you cannot rely solely on a confession alone. the new york state criminal code says this: a pinner may not be convicted of any offense solely upon evidence of a confession or admission made by him with without additional proof that the offense charged has been committed. you need additional evidence in this case. >> this is very interesting. there is no physical evidence, no fingerprints there is no
5:02 am
body. he did confess to family members and to other people at a religious retreat in the 1980s. he he said i did a bad thing, i killed a boy in new york. now why in the world none of those family members, none of those other members of the religious retreat went to the police immediately and told them this -- we do not know. one family member says he did in fact confess to police but was dismissed as, quote, too nuts. >> that's what i was just going to stay. maybe they dismissed him also. maybe the religious retreat the cops when he came forward with own confession to police their quote was he was a nut job. >> that's right. now of course hindsight is 2020. 30 years ago no centralized data base for missing children. there were no milk cartons, etan patz was the very first one so while police did their best and god knows this case haunted them for 33 years.
5:03 am
some of them were hiding information from each other because they wanted to be the detective who scored this big find so they say think missed it what some witnesses say worked at this bodega on the corner where etan patz disappeared. he was known for having a short fuse. violent temper known for being a little bit off. >> here is his wife and his daughter, pedro hernandez' wife and daughter coming obviously as you pointed out earlier living a life of hell coming out of the courthouse yesterday during this arraignment. of course, etan's body has not been recovered and at issue is the evidence, a lack of d.n.a. evidence, a lack of forensic and physical evidence. and furthermore, they don't know and police need to verify. this does pedro tell the police something we don't know just from having read the papers over the last 33 years. is there something that he says to the police that they never released publicly? that would be the green light
5:04 am
that would say yes, case closed, solved, you know something that the public doesn't know. >> interesting aspects we have talked about another one is that the parents of etan patz never left. they lived in the same apartment that they did 33 years ago. still some say waiting for etan to come home. >> they never changed their phone number. >> never changed their number. never left. never moved. had to walk by that very scene every day a couple times a day. coferl of the "new york post" this morning shows the photo. the dad that etan took many years ago. this is of the scene and right there if you could see it on the far left is the very bow dig go where pedro hernandez worked. that was the very scene in which we now believe the young man was killed. >> right. so the father had no idea at the time and he inadvertently snapped a picture of the crime scene to. your point, they also say this suspect, hernandez has mental issues that they say that he has been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar that will also complicate the
5:05 am
prosecution. is he in belleview hospital this morning. he suffers from hallucinations according to his attorney it is complicated. we do have a criminal profiler on later to give us insight into what possibly went wrong here. >> fascinating. >> let's get to your headlines and tell you what else is happening this morning. we begin with reports u.s. drone strike that killed three militants in pakistan. waziristan hot bed for extremists. third strike reported by the pakistani government. the cia is not commenting at this time. authorities in arizona need your help tracking down this gunman. they say 38-year-old thomas morton is wanted for allegedly shooting and killing his ex-girlfriend in the parking lot of a high school in avon dale. the two reportedly had a history of domestic violence. and on monday the victim filed a restraining order against him. witnesses say moton quickly fled the scene on call kawasaki motorcycle. weighs wearing a red and black jacket.

alcohol. and make sure you are in light clothing and you can go into the airconditioning if you have that across the west though we're dealing with cooler than average temperatures snow. dominant pressure around that ridge we could see showers or thunderstorms to the northern plains, upper midwest, great lakes region. and then we are watching. this this is subtropical storm beryl. subtropical storm meaning it has characteristics of a tropical storm and regular low pressure system off the coast. and this is the official track as of 8:00 a.m. we just got this one in. so we're expecting the storm to kind of slow down and linger for a little bit. expected landfall sometime overnight, monday. around the border of florida and georgia we are dealing with some heavy rain and gusty winds not going to be a hurricane. just going to be kind of a bad beach day and a date where you don't want to be outdoors barbecuing. back to you guys. >> i love the names of these storms we had bud and beryl. >> that's not as cool as hot tub jeff.

5:10 am
up about this and spoke to greta last night "on the record" which happens to be the name of her show. >> these are, again, high level officials. and then they are paid and then, you know, they slip out by cutting a deal on their retirement. that shouldn't be allowed. you know, taxpayers, no pun intend ited, already took a bath with this guy. >> we heard about this kind of stuff before, right? there was a lot of outrage about anthony weiner he left disgraced from the house of representatives. it turns it out is he going to get a nice pension for the rest of his life. >> sure. >> let's also remember this jeff neeley not only did very all of these, you know, reckless spending and abuses of power. he also didn't cooperate with the congressional committee that was trying to investigate what went wrong here to make sure it never happened again. he employed the fifth. he protected himself. didn't help the taxpayers. now $100,000 a year. the number is staggering. many of you driving this memorial day weekend. some of you flying.
5:11 am
imagine if you are flying with your family of four. you show up to the gate and they tell it you if you guys actually want to sit with your kids that will be an extra 150 bucks round trip. some airlines are thinking about charging you more to sit with your children. >> it comes down to the bottom line at that points, right? it looks like they are catering to business passengers who they have three or four times a week that are flying with them. elite passengers they want to indicater too first and maybe the family is only flying to them once a year disney world. weigh who is more important to us. >> the reason you are going to have to pay more. premium on window and aisle seats. so if you are a family of four as dave said you are not all going to be able to sit together because you have to have window seats. so your 3-year-old can have a middle seat three rows in front of you. we talked from fliers rights.org. she doesn't think this new rule makes a lot of sense. >> very antifamily provision and i think it's going to back
5:12 am
fire. i were seated next to someone else's 2-year-old and the parent wasn't there to help that child it. it would be a very awkward experience not only for the family not sitting together but for the people sitting next to them. >> here is what united airlines says. echos what i was saying about business passengers. our practice of calling passengers early. >> early boarding. >> early boarding practice as well caused more confusion than less. we made this change to simplify the boarding process and we have found that it's working according to plan. this was part 2 of the punch to the face this week by saying no more kids preboarding. >> it will back fire because if you are one of those business travelers who has an aisle and you are sitting next to my son. is he a great kid, you are going to want that money back. >> there is no amount of gummy bears in the world that i could provide a stranger to feed my children on a flight. >> tell us how you feel about this on ff weekend on twitter. >> maybe a sugar high is not the greatest thing for a long

5:17 am
the author of outnumbered. and fox news contributor jackson is also here. nice to see you this morning. >> nice to be here. >> santita is this a problem for president obama this most recent poll. >> we have to be historical about. this these are voters who did not vote for president obama in 2008. president obama actually got an amall gam of votes. got a majority of minorities, blacks, women, hispanics, gays. >> independents? >> exactly. i'm concerned about this because all americans are hurting but what's tucked inside of these polls are these numbers that show that a slight majority of these people who were polled feel that president obama is actually more sympathetic to the interest of the middle class. >> that's an interesting point so. these folks, these folks general i do a might not have voted for president obama anyway, do you buy that? >> a lot of voters very enthusiastic about him in 2008, the young voters for
5:18 am
example, female voters, a lot of those voters aren't nearly as enthusiastic now. a -- >> may i add this. we also have republic nominee presumptive by default. you have a tamped down republic electorate and democratic electorate. what will that mean? >> independence, right? is that where search focused right now hispanics and i wants. independents. who can engage and light a little bit of a fire underneath independents. >> people focused on jobs and the economy. that's the number one issue right now. i think that the democrats have failed miserably when it comes to the attack on bain capital, for example and private equity. mitt romney has the business experience that barack obama lacked. i think a lot of people are looking at the amount of money that was pumped through the economy in the name of stimulus and they are not seeing the results. at the end of the day if you
5:19 am
are out of work. your loved ones are out of work. you go to the grocery store things cost more. gas prices whether or not barack obama can do something about that in the immediate future, that's all part of his potential for re-election. >> santita, is there a problem, middle class worker making 40,000 and drops down to 30,000 in this recession. do they blame president obama for that. >> they really should not because the fact is we have been on this track for quite some time. at the end of the day 70% of the voters feel that well they have had exposure. that is to say 70% of americans know someone who lost a job. or they lost a job themselves. so i would hope that the republics and the democrats would come up with a program for student loans. 1 trlz. $1 trillion. look at the economy, jobs jobs jobs jobs. and talk to corporate titans who americans, we cannot -- the corporations there is no interest in them hiring american workers anymore. that's awful. >> we appreciate you joining us this morning. thanks so much. >> coming up on the show.

5:38 am
pants on fire moments if you want to look at it. arkansas when i served as governor stanley ross. wonderful man and great statesman he used to say that figures lie and liars figure. what he meant by that was that you can twist numbers to say anything you want them to mean. this is a classic example. because what president obama had to do to come up with this sort of magic formula was to extract all of the spending in 2009 that was his. that included the porkulous bill, he called it the stimulus. it included money that even the bush administration didn't want to spend on tarp but the obama administration did, and all of those moneys and some others were assigned to george bush even though bush had long since gone back to texas. now, the reason he did that was because of the federal fiscal date. the point of all of this is that was money that obama authorized the expenditure of. it's like blaming george bush
5:39 am
for gas that joe biden made in 2009 and just moving the calendar back and saying it doesn't count. it's the only way you can come up with it plus also manipulating the rate of inflation. several mathematical tricks it was convoluted formula. quite creative to come up with something that was absolutely off the mark. >> even rnc seems confused by these numbers. they came out and said all right. well, spend something down. is trending down. the president may be on the lower side of that the debt, that's the big issue. they're calling him the debt president in chief. is is that the issue that republicans are going to go on, this is the debt president? >> long term it is because that's what's going going to effect the country's economy and effect future generations. if you are a young american, nothing ought to worry you more than the debt because it doesn't matter what just that we spent last year and whether we got anything from it. it's who is going to pay for it. and the fact is this is like finding out when you graduate from college that you are not
5:40 am
just paying your college loan off, but you are paying the college loans off for your parents who have been out of college for 40 years. i don't know too many kids who would say that's fine. i'm delighted to do that. no, they are not. they are not fine with that and that's in essence what every younger person faces. they are not just paying off what their benefits are from the government. they are paying off benefits from people, a generation, two generations away from them and for all that they are going to pay, they get nothing. nothing. >> governor, let's switch topics for a second. 43 catholic entities are now suing the obama administration because of that healthcare mandate that stipulates that they have to provide contraception coverage that seems like a big story. yet, the most of the media outlets have not covered this massive lawsuit. why not? >> it's like not covering the i have a dream speech by martin luther king 1963.
5:41 am
like missing the roe v. wade decision and not thinking that's significant. it's like somehow missing brown vs. board of education. this is one of the most significant historic lawsuits in the past 100 years because what you have are the major diocese and the most significant parts of the largest christian body in the world suing the president of the united states that is not small potatoes. let's remember, the catholics are not historically a republic organization even right leaning, typically i think catholics tend to vote more democratic than republic. you can't say this is some partisan effort to embarrass the president. this is the last resort by people of conviction and faith. this is a government grossly overstepped constitutional authority and done exactly what the first amendment prohibited it from doing.

tornado. you can see why it is named that. it touched down in russell, kansas. although it may look small these types of twisters get more intense as they get more are narrow. a massive cyber attack targeting top oh he phoenixes. the fbi revealing that latin americas dip inside a retirement fund database accessing the social security numbers of more than 100,000 government workers. among them, military personnel and 25 people 25 members of co. the attack reportedly happened in july of last year but the victims are just finding out about it now. and jaw dropping video surfacing online. you are looking at an 80-year-old woman sky diving for her birthday when things go terribly wrong. it starts with h her looking tare fide after an instructor pushes her out of a plane. then the unthinkable happens. the woman slips out of her

6:06 am
counsel to press clinton. >> duvall patrick. >> senator finestein. >> each going after and saying the president is wrong to attack mitt romney. >> some of the president's loyal supporters are saying enough. >> let me paraphrase what the president said, dick, this is not a distraction, this is what the campaign is going be about. is it going to be a mistake? >> the reason the democrats are piling on, many of them i guess have gotten campaign contributions from bain capital and other private equity firms, particularly the two senators from new york. obama attack on romney is fundmentally inaccurate in two respects. first of all, they say that he outsourced jobs to mexico and china. he did. bain did but that was two years after romney left. and they talk about a call center that was outsourced by
6:07 am
the massachusetts government. that is true. but he inherited that and he got rid of it and in fact they moved back to the u.s. to utah. on the generic issue. the "wall street journal" did a study and found that 22% of the time the companies that bain was involved with did go bankrupt but 78% were rescued and turned around and these were call drowning companies to start with and 780 is a good batting average. >> interesting this week. something that most of us learned about or didn't know much about was the u.n. law of the sea treaty. and interestingly this week senator john kerry basically asked the administration to get on board with this. a treaty that long laid dormant. it could never get approved. just kept sitting there. now, it looks like the obama
6:08 am
administration is pulling out the big guns on this thing and there seems to be support although you take issue with this. why he? >> three days ago they had the hearing on the treaty and panetta and hillary and the head of the joint chiefs test fide for it. it has solid democratic support and a bunch of i would call them rhino republicans for it 86 think it is is a terrible treaty. it sets up an international seabed authority of 160 nations like under the u.n. and says that they will have a judicial tribunial that will decide which sea shoul lanes should b. right now the navy determines and keeps them open for everybody. it has been effective in doing that and very impartial.
6:09 am
this cedes into a body that may be andty american becaus. another thing that is worse is it gives' way half of our off shore oil and drilling royalties to the seabed authority which then gives it to third world countries and that transfer of wealth initially is $20 billion a year and would rise to several hundred billion dollars after five to seven years. in addition we are obliged to give other nations our drilling technology. the final thing is this treatia has a cause empowering the seabed authority to make regulations to fight ocean pollution and one of the things they say polluting the ocean is warming. it is crucial this be defeated. i urge people to get my book "screwed" and read about it and take action.
6:10 am
it comes up in a few weeks. we want to talk about what is going on in wisconsin. scott walker as the governor there fighting for his political life as this recall against him. there was a fire arey debate he engaged in with his opponent last night. let's take a list. >> he wants this state to be the prototype for the tea party nationally. that is why he is such a rock star. they love him. the conservatives love him. the right wing loves him because he is doing exactly what he -- they want him to do. >> there is something wrong when you have a sitting governor who raised 60% to 70% of his money from out of state. >> we wouldn't have to raise or spend a penny in the election if it weren't for the out-of-state special interests. we saw reports of more money coming in and pouring into the greater wisconsin committee which is a front group for all the union money coming in here. >> what is going to happen in wisconsin? >> the polls have walker narrowly ahead.
6:11 am
this is an absolutely crucial race. a very good bellwether for the 2012 election. if walker wins here that will be huge mind kateing romney's chances. secondly and more importantly this is the future of education in the country. the burden of his reforms was to say you can't have teacher tenure. you can't -- you have to have merit pay for teachers and you can't waste education money on union projects like marked up health insurance which you could get much more cheaply some place else. the result for example is milwaukee city got $40 million more last year they could spend on education because they marked down the health insurance but with the same coverage. the union just didn't get the profit. this is the future of education in america and it is terribly important that everybody do everything they can to support scott walker not just for its
6:12 am
national political implications but because we tried everything else to improve our schools and it failed and this is it. >> could become a precedent if he ends up walking away with this thing. >> exactly. and a precedent if he loses. if if he loses nobody will touch this issue. >> dick morris, you are the author of "screwed." thanks for being with us. >> coming up on the show, he confessed to killing etan patz. we will talk to a criminal profiler next. and a special surprise for these kids as their soldier mom and dad return from serving our country. we are there to share that heart warming homecoming, still ahead.

♪ 33 years to the day after etan patz disappeared an arrest was made. 51-year-old pedro he hernandez a former convenience store clerk confessed according to police. how could someone commit such you a horrific crime and go on to lead a regular life? let's ask criminal profiler pat brown. pat, great to see you. >> bullpen. >> according to police reports and what they told the media this guy pedro hernandez never met etan patz before that day. he saw a 6-year-old heading to a bass stop and decided to lure them to a basement because he said he had the urge to kill him. what is that? >> well, it is one of two
6:17 am
things. one is he is actually a child sex predator who then did something terrible to the little boy and then killed him afterwards because that is what he would have to probably do and doesn't want to admit this part or just lying about the whole thing and really didn't do anything to the child at all. >> why can't he just be a sociopath who really did have that sort of unbridled urge that day. >> we do see sociopaths involved in killing but with a little child there is usually something sexual associated with it. i i don't want to believe that it is possible that somebody just has this overwhelming urge and then does something so heinous. does at any time surprise you that this guy hernandez was out of the spot light for 33 year.
6:18 am
>> i don't really buy the story that that is all that would have happened if he really was guilty the crime and it doesn't mean he didn't commit other crimes. he hasn't been caught. after all if he did this one he wasn't caught either was he. just because 30 years has gone by doesn't mean a heck of a lot. we know there are child predators caught and they go back and then find a dozen children and they have no idea it was the guy. >> let's talk about his family for a second. there are media reports that he told them that he had done something terrible in new york city. he even told them i killed a child. what is the psychology of family members who wouldn't turn them in. >> they probably didn't believe them and i don't know that i believe them. i don't know that they have any evidence that he is telling the truth. you will take a case that is big in the media and have somebody crawl out of some place and claim they killed the
6:19 am
person. go back to jonbenet ramsey. some people like the attention and drama around it. if he has problems, a mental problem, schizophrenia, things like that maybe he just confessed to things he didn't do. and maybe show just shrugged and said i didn't think so. >> his attorney says he is prone to hallucinations. what would convince you that he is in fact the killer. >> at this point probably nothing. i heard the police said he had information about the crime that no one else knew. i don't know what that could possibly be. there is no physical body. they don't have a crime scene any more. what could he tell them that is so unique? i don't really buy it. they had the other suspect for all these years until they bud up the basement and they were so sure they were going to find the little boy's remains in the
6:20 am
basement and arrest the original suspect. all of a sudden this guy confessed he did it, he has the information. i don't believe it and i don't think it will hold up in court. >> we shall she what happens in the case. pat brown, thanks for joining us, we appreciate it. more fox and friends in just two minutes.

6:26 am
followed through with those promises. and a lot of the issues going around right now in terms of what this office is doing in terms of winning the teen and student vote is about fairness. and what we feel is it is not fair that the older generation gets to live above their means today where we will be forced to live below them tomorrow. that is what liberty we are trying -- >> real quick, where can folks go to learn more about this? >> go to www. sosliberty.com. we are creating a someone stop shop for youth to come together and be concerned about your fiscal health. not just the youth, all americans that want to restore fiscal responsibility to the area. and our facebook. we are quickly becoming a national voice for fiscal responsibility. >> i feel much better about today's youth. mike diamond, maria, and char lee are are from sos liberty.

6:46 am
in 2011 and memorial day weekend this weekend fox and friends wants to help some of those brave men and women land a job. >> and no better to help out than cheryl cassoni from the fox business network. she has been helping people find jobs that aren't available. >> i wanted to do something different than what i normally do during the week. we always find companies that are hiring and this week we found companies hiring veterans. what are the skillsets that veterans can bring to corporate america. the veterans themselves need to know what they can bring to the table in the interview process when they start to look for positions. and so i found five different skills that they can bring to the table and the first is leadership, guys. >> a great skill to have. leadership, the big one that they are looking for and you bring up a good point. i think there is friction between what they are learning on the battle field and what the companies are looking for.
6:47 am
number two, organization. >> organizational skills. nothing says organization leak the u.s. military. you have to be on time and report for are duty and obey our o losses and officers -- your losse bosses and officerse you. whether it is logistics or the supply room and you learn those organizational skills you can take that to corporate america. they value that because many that don't have that type of training that never did serve their country frankly don't have that. a very appreciated skill. >> number three on the list is transportation. how exactly do you emphasize that as a member of the military? >> many of our men and women that have served had to work in the big trucks whether it is tanks or trucks. and all of that, those skills transfer over to a lot of the big transportation companies here in the united states. penske truck leasing was one of my companies earlier this week because you have the skills to handle the large vehicles. a lot of people that went to
6:48 am
college. >> are we talking driving and. >> i'm talking mechanics, drivers, anything. even to learn how to be around and operate one of the large vehicles. it is a dangerous -- this can be a dangerous job and so they have the wherewithal and the kills and are used to being around large equipment. some of the companies are going near bases with large transportation operations whether in texas or alabama and actively recruiting veterans that have the skills. >> the other two are commitment to service and integrity. those are the other really important commitment to service. i have to ask you before we led you go, how do you bring the skills to the potential employers? is it on ou your resume or howu bring it up in the interview process? >> it is how you present yourself in the interview. you are coming to corporate america and been in iraq or afghanistan for x amount of years. they say what do you bring to
6:49 am
the table. i learned how to serve my country and learned the value of my mello fellow marines, arr force. integrity is something that companies recognize in veterans. waste management, gm. citi says we saw the work ethics. general motors. goes back to the transportation skills. and waste management large truck operations. examples of companies that are saying to us we are looking for these. it is good business because 12% unemployment since 2001 and 26% of them have disabilities. i mean why is it fair that you went and served our country and come back -- it is like if you didn't serve your country you would have a better chance atgeting a job and that is
6:50 am
frustrating. >> check out cheryl ca sone does a great job on fox business. >> up next, a tug of warriors. the marines taking on the navy. the winner going up against us? >> oh, no. >> i'm an anchor. >> heavy lifting there.
