♪ >> good morning, everyone. welcome in on this memorial day weekend. take a moment this weekend take more than a moment this weekend to honor the brave men and women in uniform who have given so much for this country the quantico band performing throughout the show today. >> if you are out there barbecuing we don't expect to make your whole day, don't forget the reason that you don't have to go to work that we will be at work. don't forget the reason this is a holiday i think so often people do it's easy to forget. >> if you in the new york area and you feel like coming down and doing something cool in the morning with your kiddies, coming over to 48th and sixth. beautiful day.
3:03 am
a lot going on including this polo chang champ. do you know nacho? >> yes. i said you have seen this hottie nacho? >> quite attractive, ladies. >> come on inside. >> nacho is this polo player. he he is the face of ralph lauren. it's going to be difficult for you i'm sure. >> it's not going to be difficult. he's okay. >> the most beautiful polo player in the world. is he gorgeous. >> get to the point. you are going to learn how to play polo. former water polo player. >> you asp water polo player. >> we were east coast champions, baby. >> where? >> like al bundy. >> in high school or something? >> yes high school. >> what high school you go, to richie rich. >> you don't have water polo. >> you don't use a horse in the pool. >> i'm aware of that. >> only so many lifelines i can throw.
3:04 am
first, we start in washington, d.c. memorial day weekend means motor cycles, of course. thousands of riders expected to attend the 25th annual rolling thunder rally in support of veterans and those missing in action. >> peter doocy live in morning in washington, d.c. with a preview. >> when you guys say thousands it's almost 900,000 motorcycle riders are going to take part in rolling thunder. we had a chance to talk to a retired marine and he solutes every single person who rides by. it's going to be a hot day and it's going to go on and on and on and this is what he had to say. >> a salute is a gesture of respect. i have done it, like i said, at a lot of funerals. it's way too late for me to show those old souls my appreciation considering they didn't get it when they came
3:05 am
home. it's a form of respect. i respect those veterans. i respect those family members. and i respect those concerned citizens. >> and, you know, back in 1988 when this all started, only 2500 riders took part in the rolling thunder. it's now nearly 50 times that size. we are going to be there with all of the riders later on today. we will keep you posted on everything that goes on. back to you guys. >> peter doocy, by the way, your hair looks really good. you said 900,000 people will be doing this. >> yeah. >> all in one place. >> last year our position was in the pentagon, one of the pentagon parking lots and the way that it works is people are lining up now, they line up all very orderly but on their motorcycles and they get hundreds of thousands of people in these two parking lots. there is only one way that they ride out. it is two motorcycles wide it takes all day long. the festivities in d.c. where people come and speak and there are different events are
3:06 am
done by the time that some of the people are still riding out. it's really something to be seen. you talk to people and they say rerode in from michigan. we rode in from wyoming. we rode in from wisconsin. people ride their bikes for days to get here. it's a great honor and it's a great salute to the troops. >> we expect to see you on a bike later, peter, thank you. >> yes assume he can get the helmet on. >> speaking of. >> you were worried about the hair. >> doesn't want to mess up the hair. >> it's messier than normal. usually it's very stayed in place. it's very edgy today. >> let's talk about veterans today. memorial day weekend. folks are going to focus on heading into the election. mitt romney and president obama going for this veterans vote. and there are a couple battleground states in play that deal with the veterans vote that have north carolina,
3:07 am
ohio and virginia. those states just happen to be battleground states. >> the key swing states. as you might imagine, that is at the heart of the president's message over the weekend. he is saluting those troops, listen. >> even as we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. we reaffirm our commitment to care for those who served alongside them. the veterans who came home. this includes our newest generation of veterans from iraq and afghanistan. we have to serve them and their families as well as they have served us. by making sure that they get the healthcare and benefits they need, by caring for our wounded warriors and supporting our military families and by giving veterans the chance to go to college, find a good job, and enjoy the freedom that they risked everything to protect. >> so does the president have a chance though with that veteran vote? that's interesting. it's not as open and shut as it once was. john mccain won by 10 points for the military vote in 2008.
3:08 am
but it's a different game now. i think the president has done very well by some marks in terms of foreign policy. >> usama bin laden, that type of thing. >> got bin laden. doing drone strikes. assassinations over in the mideast. it's not as clear cut as it once was. >> we just saw rolling thunder there apparently some of the members with rolling thunder were upset with the president or the white house because they were supposed to go and do this meeting thing with the president they said they were disappointed because they just got a photo op. they thought they were going to it be able to sit down and talk with the president. be engaged in the president. but also, you know, doesn't bode well for romney on the other side. romney said he wasn't going to meet with them at all. >> meanwhile vice president biden speaking at the west point graduation. parts of the administration doing their part for the military. a new "wall street journal"/nbc poll out this morning show interesting numbers as it relates to the campaign right now among veterans, president barack
3:09 am
obama 42% who say they would vote for the president and mitt romney up to 50%. >> clearly mitt romney at this point want to go to the right, run to the right of president obama when it comes to the military, when it comes to it foreign policy. hitting the president on some of those defense cuts and mitt romney will be out with john mccain campaigning on monday. will that make much of a difference? it certainly doesn't hurt as far as the military vote. but there are a lot of issues at play when you think about don't ask, don't tell. the post 9/11 gi bill. the drone strikes. it's more complicated, i think, than it was before. >> yeah, definitely. also the president and michelle obama will also be tomorrow, memorial day, will be out at the tomb of the unknown soldier at arlington national cemetery. keep an eye on that. we will be covering that on fox news. >> david brooks long time conservative columnist with the "new york times" is talking about these bain ads. we have all been talking about these bain ads, the reason we
3:10 am
have been talking about it for a second week now cory booker brought it back out again last week on meet the press. they tend to have a week long length. cory booker saying he was nauseated by this from the president's side of things and the bain attack ads. david brooks long time conservative columnist says he thinks these things are disengenius and completely full of falsehoods. take a listen. >> i just think the obama administration or campaign has demeaned itself with a series of falsehoods. they released this ad with a whole series of falsehoods one that the steel company was a healthy company until bain took over which the ad suggests completely untrue. >> also interesting that politico wrote a piece. the president has started an unsteady campaign. this is a lot of democrats quoted in this piece saying they feel that this guy's narrative is to be big. how do they get captured in all this small politics isolating one group at a time
3:11 am
rather than a big overarching narrative. these are democrat operatives, veterans of the 2008 campaign frustrated with the small ball that obama is playing as opposed to where it was with the hope and change. >> meantime, moving on the president is speaking out right now, he insists that hope and change is still alive. let's listen to what he has to say. >> congress is still arguing our politics is still polarized. you are the antidote to that that's the spirit we need again. so if people ask you what this campaign is about. you tell them yes, it's still about hope it is still about change. it's still about ordinary folks who believe that in the face of great odds we can make a difference in the life of this country. don't let them tell you different. >> so to dave's point about the politico piece saying that
3:12 am
this campaign has stumbled out of the gate. the president is trying to say no, no, hope and change is still alive. >> spur ago positive message out. >> there the campaign going with all of these negative attack ads attacking mitt romney. real question are we going to see a shift in strategy here in the goal from the campaign is to define mitt romney in these first two months before mitt romney has a chance to define himself over the summer. >> is that what you want it to hear, people? do you want to hear the negative attacks on the past? do you want to hear about what these guys are thinking about for the future what their plan. >> i get emails from people saying so sick of the negative. obvious they don't like each opener. the other side going to say -- you know what? let's just hear about what you are going to do. how things are going to change and how our lives are going to be improved. >> super pac money folks get used to t. it ain't going away. >> it's going to get worse. >> the reality of where we
3:13 am
are. >> look at your headlines this morning. >> i guess it's my job and i will take it four nato service members have died in separate roadside bomb attacks. nato not revealing nationality at this time. 32 troops have died in afghanistan so far this month. now to another developing story overnight. a massive manhunt underway after four bodies were found in the woods in nicholas county, west virginia. the victims are believed to be a missing man, his girlfriend and his 2 young children. the suspect is identified as james roy belknap. word is he may be driving a ford f 150 or chevy monte carlo. if you know anything about this guy, his whereabouts or anything at all call police. >> security institute finds iran has enough uranium for five bombs. think tank tracking iran's nuclear program says the country has significantly stepped up output of low enriched uranium in the past five years. enough for the weapons -- it
3:14 am
lee fined a little bit further. comes after another report that found a higher enrichment of uranium at iran's fordo plant. iranian officials down played the report. once again something bizarre. they say it was a technical glitch. our brave men and women in uniform honored with a special musical tribute in washington, d.c. listen to this ♪ i'm going home ♪ a place where i belong ♪ where your love has always been enough for me >> chris daughtry leading his band daughtry singing his song home to the crowd during the national memorial day concert. ♪ without me tomorrow. ♪ you'll be fine. ♪ just let it shine.
3:15 am
>> a guy beloved by the military, trace atkins performed on the west lawn in front of the capitol building. he dedicated his hit if the sun comes up to america's fallen soldiers. those are the headlines. that guy has done so much for the military, for wounded warriors. >> he was here on the program earlier this week. always a great performer and good guy. >> let's talk about something that is a little hard to swallow. we are continuing our coverage of this story because it just gets more horrific and we learn more details about this. the etan patz case. yesterday we were saying on the show one of the keys to the casey -- case is whether or not the confession was enough. is there something in the confession that led politics to say wait a minute we never put this out there publicly. this was never in the newspapers. only police officers knew about it we now know this morning that, in fact, he did tell the police things that only about 12 people within the police department ever knew. >> right. and we say this because to
3:16 am
clayton's point a confession is not enough to convict. not in new york state. you need more evidence than that there is no body, there is no d.n.a., there is no blood. anything like that. what could t it be? we don't know. we are left to speculate. this is what sources speculate in the "new york post." it could be a scar on etan patz' body. birth mark, a mole, maybe something he wore on the day he disappeared. it is odd because he was right there in this bodega, pedro hernandez. and he wasn't questioned in detail in the day and the day after the disappearance of etan patz. boggles the mind they didn't question him more. ray kelly is furious. he doesn't understand how this man wasn't given more scrutiny. >> he has a long psychiatric history. schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, hallucinations. a lot of people come out and talking about him.
3:17 am
he would sit in the same seat of the church. had his daughter there, his wife. he was a guy that hadn't really been talked about. the name really never came up. a woman who wrote the defining book on this case. she said she is a little skeptical. she never heard the name before. >> today's point, police sort of dismissed him and called him quote a nut job. if you look at it today a nut job. >> that's the kind that would -- >> and the 1979 new york city police commissioner robert mcgwire in an article this morning says he thinks there are more than one victim. he says this: if you have that uncontrollable urge towards children, you do that more than once in your life. you are not a happily married guy a member of the pentecostal church. moved and shows up in church and just a church-going guy with his family. he says he was troubled by this the rest of his life. he says this never happens. this happens way more than one time. >> what is so disturbing about him and so many things
3:18 am
disturbing about. this one of the suspect's sisters has been out there saying that years ago she heard through family members that he had said that he had done this. hadn't specifically said hot child was, but he did say he killed a child. and that the family decided we're just not going to get involved. >> they didn't even say anything about it. >> a brother. >> schizophrenia bipolar he may have been speaking out of turn. >> i remember this story i was 9 years old. >> why did i say that? >> i remember just taking over the news. it was just so horrifying. i remember my parents being disturbed by it awful case. >> concerned that other kids would be walking to school and be able to do that on their own. more on that. >> is the obama administration and specifically the labor department trying to redefine the term unemployed? is this another way, perhaps a back door way of lowering the unemployment rate? here is what the plan would allow for? it would allow for you, if you
3:19 am
want to say start a business and out of work right now and say i'm going to start my own business. can you still technically collect unemployment benefits even though you are employed running your own business. it would take some of the risk out of the equation because you would have some money coming in while you start this business. >> or could this be an incentive for people who are scared to go out and become an entrepreneur, you finally have that incentive to go in there and take that risk and have a little bit of a safety net there. >> it's hard to argue. if you are a republic and you are running for office, it would be hard to maybe vote against this. or to come out and talk against this because i could see the campaign ads. right? he voted against helping you become an entrepreneur. but on the other side of it is is this government waste? is this a way of defining what unemployed means so that labor numbers look better for president obama. if labor numbers drop more people are just back to, woman of achievement we just redefine the definition. >> it could also open the door to a lot of fraud saying well
3:20 am
i'm starting my own business. >> it just didn't work out. >> what's the burden of proof i'm starting online business. i need my unemployment benefits for another 26 months. >> you know what it takes like an llc. it's like $120 depending what state you live in. fill out a form and i have got my own business now. >> the good news here is that this is a plan based on a model in oregon, delaware, maine, new york and new jersey that has actually worked out quite well. >> that's good. so we actually have some track record there. and it's interesting because if you look back a little bit in history we actually talked about this on the show a few months ago where the administration had a plan where they would test out workers still collecting unemployment checks but while they are testing out new job. so this idea that you are sort of, i don't know, double dipping. here you are getting benefits from a new job also collecting unemployment benefits from the state. >> trying to get people to take jobs they ordinarily would not. would that be the incentive of that one. >> perhaps or just to cover
3:21 am
the overlap because some people are out of work and that's an incentive maybe for them to get extra cushion. i don't know. >> let us know what you think, i guess. >> go work at a coffee shop. that is one such place you can go get a job in this economy. but you may not be able to work at this coffee shop called mary lowe they are under fire from the fed's from hiring waitresses that don't necessarily have that skill although that's very talented. >> this is one of their terrible commercials. >> they are bad. >> but they are under fire because they seem to hire all the same type of waitress. >> what type are we speaking of? >> blonde, bucksome, beautiful, and the feds have been looking into them. ongoing investigation as to whether or not mary lieu's which owns 29 coffee shops has
3:22 am
been hiring on discrimination basis. >> hotties. >> like if dave and i were to go in to get a job there would they hire us or put us back to wash dishes. >> they would put you back to wash dishes for sure. >> reminds us of what happened on the seinfeld episode well, take a look. >> have you noticed anything else that's different since the new management? look at the waitresses. >> yeah. >> what physical characteristic would you say is common to all of them? >> you know what? that's discriminatory. that is unfair. why should these women have all the advantages. >> hey, that's life. good-looking men have the same advantage. you don't see any handsome homeless. >> good point. >> is this a problem for you. >> it's not for the gender discrimination. guys, give me a break. go get a job somewhere else. it is a problem if it's racial
3:23 am
though. if it's racial discrimination, then we may in fact have a case. >> if they are only hiring white blonde women. >> i saw brunettes in there. >> yeah. okay. mary lou's coffee put out this statement has not had a complaint in the 25 years years we have been open. the implication in the report is absolutely false. we hire only the qualified applicants in total compliance with the state and federal laws. >> it's not like hooty's with the short shorts. t-shirts and shorts. big deal. >> equal opportunity employment commission. >> eoc. >> went after hooters as well a few years ago. >> class action lawsuit now. let us know if this opened the door to discrimination or is this give me a break? >> email us at or
3:24 am
twitter. >> ladies night. >> police,. >> out of here in new york. >> go to ladies night. if you don't want the government spying on online activity, then you better watch your words that you use. a new list just released with the words you should avoid. otherwise, the department of homeland security is cataloging it. very strange words that you use every day i'm sure. >> in honor of our troops memorial day, we have patriotic painting on the plaza. celebrated artist steve henly here talk to him about his inspur coming up.
3:25 am

3:29 am
with another memorial day weekend segment. patriotic painting my friend. >> that's right, guys. out here on the plaza this morning we have steve penally who is a long-time artist. he started back a number of years ago finding inspiration to paint patriotic paintings. he has been painting up here feverishly all morning for us. have you been working on a project behind you which we will get to in a second. can i see the lady liberty. >> starting. we hope it will turn into that. >> you work so fast but do such an incredible job. how did you get into painting patriotic paintings? >> when i was in college my favorite subject was history. when i got out oof college of course i was starving to death like every other artist. i didn't know what i was going to paint. a friend of mine was opening a restaurant and needed a bunch of artwork to cover the walls. he said will you do them? i need 15 or 20 i i said great when do you need them?
3:30 am
>> he said fry friday. >> i thought of my subject from college and it clicked with people. >> here's mount rushmore. beautiful mount rush moore. how long did it take to you paint that. >> reasonably fast paintings. i like to tell you that it takes a long time so i will get paid more. make a memorial. but a lot of these images from history i do to try to remind people of how lucky we are to be americans and try to especially with younger people remind them how fortunate we are to be here. >> the images that we choose and we have some beautiful ones here behind the american flag. some of the founding fathers i see. we have george washington over here. >> right. >> you wanted to paint founding fathers and how important is it for you to paint this scene which is gorgeous? what about the founding fathers intrigues you? >> founding fathers amazing group of guys that came together at the right moment
3:31 am
in history and almost miraculous that this group of guys happened to be there to started this country and still, you know, would he live in the greatest country in the history of civilization. and i want to try to focus on the things that made us different. what made us different. the founding fathers and the things that they stood for and the things that they did. that was the beginning of what made us different. >> i'm a huge space fan. this is absolutely gorgeous. one of the apollo missions here. >> right. i think this is the buzz aldrin one. i have a 10-year-old son. he has always been fascinated by space, too. so that kind of, you know, reinvigorated my interest in space. but it's -- again, this is another symbol of america and what we have accomplished and what the greatest of america can achieve. >> we should mention throughout the show you are going to be painting for us. in our hallway at "fox &
3:32 am
friends" we have a lot of space on the wall. you will be painting some paintings that will end up on the hallway. >> we are going all the way down the hallway on "fox & friends." >> and around the building. >> you better get working. >> he is going to do this whole building. take a look at the building guys, it's a pretty tall building. >> i'm being paid billions. >> this is a pretty big building. >> a lot of floors to cover. we will work at the bottom floor. "fox & friends" studios. paint to you in the weather center. it may take four years but we will eventually get to you. >> you can't paint the background because i knead my green screen here. >> paint a fake green screen and never have to worry about technology. >> my brain hurts. good to see you clayton. >> good morning. >> it's hot and sticky across the east coast clayton's hair still looks great. we are watching a lot of stories heat across the two thirds of the country. watching the potential for severe weather and subtropical storm beryl that's beryling
3:33 am
towards the southeast coast. let's get to it and show you where we are seeing the weather today. we are looking at cooler than average temperatures across the northern rockies. they have winter storm advisories up here. very different from what we are seeing across the eastern half of the country. there is tropical storm beryl. subtropicaltropical. characteristics of a tropical storm and. system off the coast. there is beryl's path as of 5:00 a.m. 50 mile-per-hour sustained winds. continuing to move west-southwest at 10 miles per hour. as we head overnight tonight and into monday we are thinking it's going to make a landfall out of the tropical system somewhere across the border between florida and georgia. as we head further out in time kind of lingering off the southeast coast which is going to be a good news thing because they need the rain. tropical storm advisories, warnings in effect from volusia county to brevard county to adestoe beach, south carolina. we are going to continue to monitor this situation and
3:34 am
bring you the latest from the fox news extreme center back to you. >> my friends in jacksonville need to watch out for that good to see you. let's get to some headlines now. a house burst into flames in wisconsin it's all caught on camera by scared neighbors. fire crews battling a blaze glendale. for several hours, nearby houses were also damaged. >> i heard things falling off my walls from upstairs. and i didn't know if it was inside? outside? >> officials say six people were sent to the hospital. including a firefighter and a police officer. the extent of their injuries is not known. the cause under investigation. usama bin laden apparently treated like the animal he was. we are now learning the terror leader used to travel around pakistan hiding in a giant truck filled with sheep, goats and chickens. too bad there weren't any lions in there. giant box that sit in or lie down. in all of this according to
3:35 am
sources with the taliban. they say the truck was designed specifically for that use by one of his top aides. he is the same guy though set up the compound in. >> so simple and lucrative violent criminals are trading in guns for laptops. a "new york times" report revealing that identity theft tax fraud is on the rise. last year the irs stopped at least 1.3 million fake returns. wow. that's a lot. the scheme apparently pretty easy to pull off. criminals get your hands on social security number and that's not difficult to do. they file electronic return before you do and then they receive a money in a hard track debit card. career killer not according to the "wall street journal." successful male ceos when said at the right moment and right
3:36 am
setting a well chosen curse word can motivate a team and win over audience. apparently this only applies if you are a man. there is shockingly, dave, and clayton, a double standard for women in the workplace. not lady like. >> good news for dave. >> fantastic news for dave. a firm believer in the occasional -- that's because i'm on television. you only really see me on national television. i complete it up here. >> in the commercial break just all explicittives. every 7th word. >> just letting them slide as kramer said. me and morris have a little wager and this time let's just say briggs won. game seven between the celtics and sixers was a big one. big three may be old but still good. how about andre keeping the sixers around? look at that. he led the team with 18 points.
3:37 am
the celtics started 0 for 14 from record. ray allen ended the drought. pierce fouled out meaning rondo had to take over. he did. 11 fourth quarter points. nine straight at one point. ninth playoff triple double. this guy is amazing. that ties wilt chamberlain in that category. celtics close him out. they will meet the heat starting on monday in miami. meanwhile to baseball now. the texas rangers. baseball's best squad. they go back to back to back. nelson crews. mitch moreland solo homers. this guy decided in the 13th inning by josh hamilton. they punish to him with the base open. that's his major league leading 20th home run, 50 robiskie. -- rbi's.
3:38 am
the rare triple steal in the ninth inning. can you believe that? i didn't remember seeing a triple steal let alone in the ninth inning. guy steals home. guy on seconds moves up. >> all eyes on home plate. >> six stolen ways. >> was he out of home or safe. >> i want to say thanks to kristen haze one of our viewers who told me about this on twitter. you don't see that very often the triple steal in the ninth. >> last year the phillies had the only triple play last year. >> was it unassisted? >> i think it was unassisted triple play last year. >> you are a wealth of trivia, aren't you? >> we are also a wealth of knowledge. we are a wealth of words. do you ever worry about what you are typing online someone might be watching it maybe you are on social media or somewhere else?
3:39 am
>> sexy like am i going to get in trouble? >> or if you are writing something else, that's where your mind is going. >> you know what i'm saying. trying to find the word what are. >> turns out this morning we now know thanks to a freedom of information act request that in fact there are certain words that the department of homeland security is using as key words. once they see these words they are watching you. they are kind of policing the internet. they say they are not. but what else could you call it? let's be honest. these are many soft words. some of them are obvious like attack, al qaeda. terrorism, and dirty bomb. i think that goes about saying. you probably shouldn't be doing a whole lot of tweeting about such words rather innocuous words. pork, cloud, team, because god knows it's terrible to write team and mexico. >> there is a problem with this story. i understand freedom of information q too we want to put that list out there? come on, i understand the department of homeland
3:40 am

3:46 am
glad you got up early for us or maybe just stayed up thank you, good morning. you want to do away with the gsa entirely perhaps? why? i think that private industry can do it better and cheaper. in charge of all of our public buildings. supposed to be liquidating properties. sold 82 properties in the last decade. private industry could have sold thousands of the vacant properties overnight. so, i want to see redevelopment. i want to see jobs. and i think it can be done better by private industry. >> we're not talking about one bad apple. one killer convention, mind you. this is an overall bad idea the entire agency is running the wrong way. >> yeah. absolutely. you know, gsa is also in charge of our vehicles. all of our fleets. trackers that are used by transportation. the department of transportation. and then when they outlive their life, they're sold and they are sold in auction yards
3:47 am
rather than online as many private industries do. we are getting pennies for the dollars for the things we liquidate rather than getting the full fare as we should. >> as you know congressman micah has another goal in mind. he wants to do away with what's happening regarding jeff neeley that we talked about. he get what we understand is about $100,000 in compensation package annually despite the fact of everything that went wrong there. he has also been paid while he has been sitting there not testifying to congress. what should be done in terms of not gsa but like. this certainly when someone has broken the law and we do believe the law has definitely been broken here, they should not be not only their pay should be stopped but they should be fired immediately and then they should be forced to pay that money back. we have seen time and time again where they are able to stay on board, continue to collect a paycheck and then pad their retirement. it's got to stop.
3:48 am
i mean, this doesn't happen in corporate life. in fact, you hear the president rale against it all the time. you know, people are fired. >> i think you should also, if you are working for the government on taxpayer dime having to testify seems like it makes a lot of sense. in terms of conventions another movement afoot trying to do away with government conventions across the board? is that overreaction and could that have adverse effects in terms of the economy? >> i don't think it's an overreaction. the president issued an executive order last november. last september he sent a memo out toker department head saying that he wanted to eliminate the conferences and wanted them to report back to his budget office. then they were going to have a meeting with the vice president to go over all of the efficiencies. when this report came out in november they wanted to start doing a lot of of teleconferences, use the
3:49 am
building that are i have a isn't a use them for teleconferences. are awful your agencies ignoring you? if that's the case? not only do we want to see what happened with this budget memorandum. secondly i'm going to present legislation, i will be introducing it next week basically forces the president to eliminate it the agencies are going to ignore the president and executive order. we're going to force him to do it in congress. >> keep us up to date. congressman, have a great memorial day weekend. get some sleep, please. >> you got it, thank you. >> up next, the widow and son of a vietnam veteran hear the voice of their loved one from beyond the grave. vietnam in his own words from that era. that first-hand account is next. is he celebrating our freedom and the men and women who fight for it with every brush stroke. we will check in with artist steve penally who is painting on the plaza this morning. ♪ set me free.

3:55 am
fly because he loved to fly he felt like the 3-d would give me a idea idea what it was like to be up in the air in the clouds. and when he came home about 10 years after he came home, we compiled the book. we put t together and published it. i was in the publishing business. and tom jennings found out about it. called me one day and said we would like to do a documentary in 3-d featuring your husband's 3-d pictures of vietnam. >> tom jennings was the producer of this documentary. so tom glenn, when you were a little boy and would sit there with your dad, did you kind of know this was something that was a passion of him and morph into your life. >> yeah everything dad did he did t with a blast. these photos are just
3:56 am
thousands 3-d photos that he has. we would go on vacation and we were almost preprogrammed to know how to line up and get ready for a pincht he took thousands of pictures. doork rooms in bathrooms we lived in. he bought everything 3-d that you could buy. >> images of time in combat but also his bought with agent orange and that actually ended up killing him, didn't it? >> yes, it did. >> do you think your father and husband would be happy to see that this film came to life. >> oh my goodness, yes. he would be absolutely delighted because he wanted his pictures to be preserved i would be thrilled with that. >> congratulations. guy soldier memorial day 9 p.m. eastern time. i hope everybody can tune in. >> thank you.

4:04 am
1988 if anyone is still continuing to do that from year to year. >> i will keep my eyes peeled. >> there in the studio. >> thank you, peter. >> he will be out there? >> oh, is he going to be out there. >> yeah. >> they start off and by the end of the day these two riders going off, i mean it's two after two. >> steady stream. >> 3:00 in the morning they are still going. all righty. if you are waking up want to give you some headlines. starting off with bad news four nato service members have died in four separate bomb attacks. the incidents happened last night in southern afghanistan. nato not revealing their nationalities at this time. 32 nato troops have died in afghanistan so far this month. wildfires raging out of control in the west once again. officials in new mexico say 100,000-acre wildfire, well, it still has not been contained. the blaze forcing the evacuation of residents near a privately owned ghost town. smoke prompting health warnings across the state due to heavy smoke from flames.
4:05 am
meanwhile, a wildfire in michigan is also spreading, forcing about 100 people from their homes. officials say the blaze, which is located in the state's upper peninsula has grown to more than 21,000 acres. wow. we talked to you about this story earlier. stars and stripes on a door mat are stirring up outrage for one vietnam war veteran. kelly wants them pulled off the shelves all lowe's stores immediately. >> you don't tread on the american flag. you don't wipe dirty boots on them. you don't walk on them. that's a patriotic symbol that represents the freedom of the country and people in it. >> well, kelly said that when he talked to the manager. he was told the door mats weren't you meant to be used on the floor but as a door hanging. come on. please. >> kelly now plans to boycott lowe's until corporate pus out national policy removing them. what do you think about that?
4:06 am
interesting? >> doing shots to getting shot. this college co-ed taking a bullet to the hip after drunkingly wandering into a couple's home in the morning. joey ripple ignoring. >> walked into our bedroom we were screaming at her she kept coming in the bedroom. and she -- we shot her. >> yikes. homeowners say it was dark when they fired the bullet into the air. they didn't see the girl until they turned the lights back on. fortunately the bullet did little dang to her hip but she is now facing felony trespasser charges. the homeowners were within their rights. that is a crazy story. >> look up and see some crazy person standing in your bedroom, yeah, i think you are well within your rights to take action. >> i think as well. meanwhile, the latest in this etan patz story. very interesting when you consider it sounds like a slam dunk when you have a confession. man coming forward saying i
4:07 am
killed etan patz 33 years ago. that is not enough as we told you in new york state to guarantee a conviction. what do you need? you need something else, whether t be physical proof or something only the killer would know, clayton,. >> it turns out now we are learning more from the nypd. to dave's point is the confession all they had to go on is it enough. information that wasn't printed in the newspapers. according to ray kelly this morning there are things he told them that only 12 people knew in the police department. we don't know what that was. was it scars that perhaps he knew about? birth marks? moles on his body or something that he wore that day? that would have been an item of clothing, some sort of a head band or something like that that he might have had on. anyway we have a legal debate on this coming up. this is important in the state of new york, this code really a confession is not enough. we have a legal debate on what prosecutors need going forward make sure this guy.
4:08 am
>> imagine when it sounds like closure, imagine pedro hernandez walking free. >> he has been walking free for 33 years. >> also, you know that other guy ramos who was the one guy that everybody sort of -- his name was always in there he was the drifter who was friends with patz' babysitter. he had a civil suit brought against him. yeah, wild story. >> still incarcerated though. let's get to janice dean a check of the weather across the country. janice, i know everybody is worried about barbecues. myself i'm worried about the indy 500 where they could shatter a record heat. that is bad news. >> 96 today in indianapolis. and on the racetrack, 140 degrees. really warm there. they are probably going to set an all-time indy record for the warmest indy 500 of all time. 96 degrees is a daily record. is that is the big story across much of the u.s. two thirds of the u.s. really baking with high humidity,
4:09 am
heat advisories in effect. if you are outdoors for any great length of time you want to be really careful. get into a shade area, wear loose clothing and get into the airconditioning as well. okay? we're looking at the potential for severe weather as well as today across the central plains yet again. moderate risk for parts of kansas and nebraska. going to see large hail, damaging winds and even tornadoes, guys. if you are outside make sure you looking local forecast. dave, back to you. >> thanks so much. janice dean. meanwhile president obama and the g.o.p. candidate mitt romney presumptive candidate will be keeping busy this memorial day. competing for the all important military vote. recent "wall street journal" shows that if the election were held today romney leads by 8 percentage points. who will win? democratic strategist and former chairman of the rnc dee dee banky. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> dee dee, typically it's the
4:10 am
republics that own its -- this is a very different election in terms of the military vote. barack obama seems like at this point he is going to do better than democrats have done in the past. >> yeah, i doubt it i think because for one, the military, there are heros, they did everything and anything that they need in support. with barack obama having so much waste with solar panels, solyndra as a gsa, i think. >> those are issues with the military? >> yes, i do. the reason i think that is because military families have to live on a budget and they are frugal, good people, i have to tell you they deserve anything and everything they need to support. they have not gotten enough support with the obama administration. >> i'm curious, i don't know as much about the solyndra like stories. when you look at the defense cuts, those could be a big deal to military veterans. i think that's up in the air. we don't know if that helps him or hurts him the military.
4:11 am
what will be the big issue. >> there are several big issues for military families because they struggle with the same issues that the rest of us do. there are some issues that are very specific to military families like the fact government spending doesn't necessarily hurt military families like the republicans are trying to portray. for one thing spend toggle help military veterans that are coming back with ptsd more money put in place by the obama administration. this is a serious issue. my uncle suffered from it. >> post 9/11 gi bill. >> yes. that helps -- this government spending that directly helps those families and president obama has pushed to get that spending through to ensure that when our veterans come back they have all the support that they need. i think we need to go even further. and so does the president. >> well, the post 9/11 veterans have a far higher rate than the reps of the country. other issues at play here like benefits being cut for military members. i'm curious, dee dee when he says i got bin laden, i have approved drone strikes -- >> -- let's give credit.
4:12 am
>> aren't these things military members like to hear. >> this is what i would like it hear. let's give credit to the military members who did that instead of the victory lap. give credit to the folks who went in there the seals. >> he has. >> they are the ones that got the job done. that is what we should do celebrate as americans that that happened. we have the best military on the planet and not take the victory lap for political gain. >> let's listen to joe biden yesterday at west point one of the assets that they have in courting that military vote. >> winding down these long roads is enabling us to replace and rebalance our foreign policy. >> so, will he be an asset? who can the president counter with when you have mitt romney out there with john mccain on monday going across the country with one of our nation's veterans? >> the president can counter with his record. when you look, you contrast mitt romney flip flopped on everywhere issue. one thing military families value is dereceiveness and
4:13 am
courage. when the time came the president made the call. this whole thing that the president hasn't thanked the military for their work with usama bin laden. of course he has. he has done over to and over again and he should could that. the big deal on his part is he made that call. he didn't have to make that call. bush had the same cans. >> who wouldn't make that call. >> bush had the same chance. >> so did clinton. >> that's my point. >> this is about the military and celebrating our best military. >> struck a nerve. dee dee is interrupting me. i struck a nerve. >> these two are going to stick around. >> we will debate. >> anyone would have made that call. >> we will debate next the national implications of the wisconsin recall election regarding the governor there stay tuned.

4:17 am
for his political life june 5th recall election nears. a fiery debate between walker and his democratic opponent. milwaukee mayor took place friday night. >> he wants this state to be the prototype for the tea party nationally. that's 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 has raised 60 to 7' o% of his money from out of state. >> we wouldn't have to raise or spend a penny in this election if it weren't for the special out of state interest. we saw reports this week of more money coming in from the democrat governor's association and from pouring into the greater wisconsin committee which is a front group for all the union money coming in there. >> what will the national impact be of this recall election? we're back with our panel. this is so interesting because ultimately all elections are local. but nationally what will be the impact?
4:18 am
if walker wins which he is 5 and 9 points up in the polls, sarah, does it mean wisconsin is in play for mitt romney. >> wisconsin is going to be a battleground state regardless because of the dynamics in place and some of the issues that the state faces. i still think it's a win for president obama if walker gets reelected because first of all the fact is recall we even got to this point where there is this recall. only the third time in the united states history that a silting governor has been put in this position. this is the third time. >> with the centerpiece of this recall being about the union collective bargaining and if he is the first one to win when facing recall, i can't imagine that being spun as a positive for the president. is it a national election in terms of its implication. >> it's definitely not a positive. this is a desperate attempt for unions to keep their relevance because they are dying. the relevance is not like it used to be for unions. it's now the super pacs. they are trying to fight for
4:19 am
existence and governor walker will win and wisconsin will be much closer obviously what was 10 points last time. wisconsin is in play. remember the rnc chairman is from wisconsin. they have a good ground game. not going to go well. >> obama won handily. >> they are going lose indiana, too. >> to the point of the unions though. that was of course the whole reason recall he was facing recall. now it's not the centerpiece of barrett's campaign because it looks like those have worked. the stripping of the collective bargaining rights have worked somewhat. >> i don't know. they still have very significant issues in job losses in wisconsin. [ laughter ] >> they have actually righted the ship in terms of the unemployment rate looks like it's heading in the right direction. if walker wins, what does it mean for national public service unions? >> well, i think that the unions are going to have a difficult time with the governors this think like walker. unions represent working people. these are people who are families, just like the reps of us. i think what the unions need to do is push back and they need to not allow themselves
4:20 am
to be demonized and they need to continue to stand up. and here's the interesting thing about walker that i think a lot of people forget. he got the unions to agree to the very concessions that he asked for. he got them to agree to that. then what he did was he went further than that and says i want to take away your rights to negotiate. that's where the unions -- they agreed to everything. he wants to take away people's rights. that's freedom. republicans talk about freedoms, taking away someone's rights to negotiate is taking away freedom. >> great governor, done a wonderful job, is he going to get reelect and this is going to be a utter fail of the union attempt. >> june 5th is the recall debate thank you both for being here. >> thank you. >> up next confessed to killing etan patz more than 30 years ago. will that be enough to convict pedro hernandez. the legal debate is next.

4:26 am
cold case. something outside of this new york code that could be enough for them to bring a conviction? >> possiblily. here is -- potentially. you need cooperation. cpl says it needs to be corroborated. this is a great office i worked there manhattan p.a. they know what they are doing. a guy who is schizophrenic, clayton he has psychiatric history and bipolar. now you give the indication that the confession sounds credible. how many media reports have been on this? how many books have been written on their. match that against the fact that there is no physical evidence. been 33 years problematic. >> john bin nay ramsey case this guy came out and said i did it this seems to be more credible. this guy confessed in 1981, two years after the murder to family and friends. there is a confession going on there. maybe part of the schizophrenia and mental illness has to do with the guilt over the years. >> additionally though you brought up the point i wanted
4:27 am
to follow up on that is the additional nuggets of information he provided police. >> only that he would know or killer would know. >> not printed in those books. we learned overnight there is something. ray kelly says there is only 12 people that knew about this in the police department. was something a scar? a birth mark? something else? maybe a piece of clothing that he wore that would then say to police he knows more than he is telling? >> exactly. not been published out there in the public domain. if they have that then that croshts the confession right there. >> let's get to this other point which is is this just one in the question that was brought up by robert mcgwire the former nypd commissioner says i have studied cases like this for years. i know a personal like this just doesn't do this one time. >> absolutely. >> there would be some trail. anything you do like that clayton you need to corroborate. you need more proof. if there is more things that he had done, where are they? the thing that concerns me. if there were concessions as lis mentioned a year or two after the fact why weren't
4:28 am
they followed up on at that time. if you talk to family members and family members would say that he said hey you know i did something horrible to a child, why weren't the police on it a year later? two years, 10 years, 20 years, it's 33 years later. >> does that hurt the prosecution that joey is bringing up the police thought he was a nut job, that's their words and they ignored it does that embolden the defense. >> it does. that will be something the defense brings up. on the other hand, if there is corroboration, i agree with you, joey, there probably is something more than just. >> possibly? they wouldn't have done it otherwise. >> great office would not have done. this there has got to be something more. i think there may be also other victims out there. you are right. when he portrays what he did. got him with a soda and strangled him and put him in the garbage, all of that, that doesn't happen, i hate to say it, it doesn't happen just once. t doesn't go away. once you crs over that. >> that's the other problem, you speak to people in the

4:48 am
least help narrow that gap between the republicans and democrats when it comes to latinos, you say not so fast. >> let's start with florida which is a key swing state a quinnipiac poll released this week has romney on his own beating president obama by six points and senator rubio just giving him a 2 point bump now if we go to hispanics and look at election cycles, 10 of them from 1972 to the president there has been five republicans that have won with an average of 37% of the hispanic vote. mccain lost in 2008 with 31%. and a "wall street journal" nbc poll released this week has romney at 27%. if he doesn't get up to 37, he will lose the election. that's not opinion. that's electoral elementary math. so the question is whether center rubio can get him to that 37%. using rubio, the senator, to connect to hispanic voters is like trying to connect to jewish voters with a jew who
4:49 am
speaks hebrew but is he openly hostile to israel and pro, very friendly to iran. it's absurd. what you have to remember i work for a company that helps fortune 500 companies connect to hispanic consumers and ironically i work with a company called bain and company. what romney doesn't understand and his close advisors is that comprehensive immigration reform is a litmus test. let me repeat. a litmus test with hispanic voters like myself now, while education, and healthcare and jobs and the economy are also very important, if you don't support comprehensive immigration reform, you're north going to get to any of the other issues and it seems that they don't quite understand that. >> yeah, charles. i know some hispanic leaders have told me jeb bush would actually do better in securing the hispanic vote than would marco rubio that is for another day. latinos are free loaders the
4:50 am
suggestion they don't pay taxes specifically related to illegals. again you say a myth. explain? >> that is a complete myth, fact of the matter everyone that pays in this country pays taxes when they buy stuff. when you go to the store and buy things, you pay a sales tax. when you live somewhere, you are either own a house or you rent, you pay property taxes most importantly when you work, uncle sam is taking money away from you and in this case from undocumented workers. 15 cents of every dollar is going to social security social security and medicare. $14 billion a year. how do you like them apples. >> fascinating. enjoyed the chat. talk more about the vice presidential pick if you would, sir. >> i would love to. >> have a great weekend. as the temperatures heat up, you are not the only ones who has to stay cool. your pet does, too.

5:04 am
vice president joe biden speaking to graduates at west point and mitt romney will counter on monday with john mccain. john mccain did very well with the military vote in 2008 as you would expect as a former prisoner of war. he won 55-45. it looks to be close to those same numbers this time around with mitt romney in a pretty comfortable lead according to the latest poll at 50 to 42% for mitt romney. i think this is a different year in terms of the military vote because obama can say as a democrat i got bin laden he of course has the drone strikes. >> there are some drone strikes that have increased in afghanistan. >> there are some polls that have him ahead of romney there was a gallup poll. >> it was a reuters poll i find it a little questionable. >> take a look at this. this is where the pockets of veterans are right now. this is where the votes are sort of happens to coincide battleground states. florida was a huge
5:05 am
battleground state. president obama won by four percentage points or so. >> large number of veterans there in florida. 1.6 million. >> yeah, exactly. also virginia, ohio, north carolina, and colorado. all battleground states. >> but it's interesting because you have the defense cuts, that could play in here. don't ask, don't tell is gone. that could play in here. there is a lot of issues that come to play with the military vote this year. we want to hear from you military members. who are you supporting and why this time around at ff weekend on twitter. >> all righty. let's do some headlines now. four nato service members have died in separate roadside bomb attacks. these happened last night in the southern portion of afghanistan. nato at the time not revealing their nationalities, 32 nato troops have died in afghanistan so far this month. not good news. now to another story developing overnight. massive manhunt underway after four bodies were found in the woods in nicholas county, west virginia. the victims are believed to be a missing man, his girlfriend and two young children.

5:09 am
only do we want to see what happened with this budget memorandum that was supposed to come back but, secondly, i'm going to present legislation. i will be introducing it next week that basically forces the president to eliminate it if the agencies are going to ignore the president and executive order we're going to force him to do it in congress. >> denham wants to look at the entire gsa and see if they are doing their purpose. they might be able to do away with the agency together and privatize it wants to take it two or three steps further than congressman micah. >> is he a great guy. he is passionate and represents the area of modesto, california, huge unemployment rate. he wants things to change. we'll see what happens. let's get out to janice dean, our weather machine extraordinaire with some extreme weather going on down in the southeast. >> yes, ma'am, this is subtropical storm beryl. that just means we have tropical characteristic and
5:10 am
nontropical characteristics big old storm going to move into the southeast. it's not a hurricane. we're not sounding those alarms. we are going to get some showers and thunderstorms and heavier downpours across the southeast. that's ultimately good news story because they need it into severe exceptional drowted in some cases. across the border of canada and the u.s., that's where we are starting to see some showers, thunderstorms, even a threat for severe weather. look at this. can you believe that we are seeing some mountain snow across the northern rockies? some areas feeling winter. others it's summertime. a severe threat continues across the western great lakes all the way down to the texas and oklahoma panhandle. then we have this moderate risk here and the storm prediction center thinks we're going to have the potential for not only hail and damaging winds but tornadoes. we could have long-lasting ones. because it's a long weekend, memorial day, holiday people are barbecuing. i want to make sure everyone in this yellow shaded area and red shaded area that you are paying close attention to your local forecasters, highs today
5:11 am
we have that trough in the west. got that snow. so cooler than average temperatures and warmer than average temperatures for really the rest of the country. the central u.s. that's where we are going to see heat indices well into the 100 degrees. again, if you are outdoors barbecuing, make sure you are taking extra precaution. get into the shade, airconditioning and lots of water. water, guys water. >> home using my computer. i saw snow and 100-degree temperatures. i would think my computer was broken. >> that's why we call it extreme weather center. >> they are going to have -- >> they were wondering if it was going to be too foggy to see it. >> that's how it is most days. >> see the golden gate bridge and we can't see it anywhere. >> such a beautiful city. >> largest religious lawsuit in history filed against the obama administration this week but the mainstream media ignoring it for the most part. the anchor of "fox news sunday" chris wallace here to

>> welcome back. is the mainstream media deliberately ignoring the catholic lawsuits filed against the obama administration? take a look at this chart. the first two nights, the story broke only 19 seconds of total air time on all three broadcast networks. zero on abc, zero nbc, cbs had the 19 seconds. >> whopping 19 seconds. all right. joining us now is the anchor of "fox news sunday" chris wallace.
5:16 am
he will have on the archbishop of washington to discuss this good morning to you. interesting because catholics make up 25% of the electorate. they don't vote as a block. how do you feel this lawsuit will be used politically one side or another? >> well, i mean, it certainly is important it's not political in the sense that the 43 organizations, including 13 catholic archdiocese around the nation have filed suit to try to overturn the obama administration mandate that religious organizations, not churches but charities and schools and hospitals must provide insurance coverage that covers contraception. and they say that it's an abridgement of the first amendment. religious freedom. it has a lot of implications for the church. they say you have got the government deciding a church, yes, that's a religious organization. but a catholic school or a catholic hospital is not a
5:17 am
religious organization. so, therefore, they can order it to do so. it will obviously have some political impact down the line. having said that the whole thing could go away. if the supreme court next month were to overturn the individual mandate that all this goes out the window anyway. >> that's a great point, chris. i didn't think about that. >> this isn't really an area that you focus on. but it is interesting that you really aren't getting a lot of play within the media on this. and you said, you know, it's not political but it kind of turns out to be political, i think, to a lot of these mainstream media organizations. >> i don't know, juliet, that i think that they are sitting there saying well this is a challenge the obama administration so therefore we're not going to cover it. i do think though that it does speak to the mainstream media and their definition of news and clearly, i mean, i can't put myself in the minds of the broadcast executives, the producers, the anchors, but they don't seem to consider it news that as i say 14, rather
5:18 am
43 catholic organizations, 13 archdiocese, the arch i do cyst of new york. the archdiocese of washington. pretty big parts of the country view the administration as abridging their religious freedom and other things they think are news. i t. goes to the bias of what they consider news and what they don't consider news. >> you also have on john mccain who will campaign with mitt romney on monday. we have talked about this morning who stands to win the military vote typically republicans do very well, 10 point win for mccain in 2008. do you think it goes the same way in the fall. >> no. in this particular case, of course, now obama has been the comeashted and chief for three and a half years. he has had some stunning successes in terms of taking out al qaeda. taking out bin laden. and he and mrs. obama have really reached out to military families. so i don't know that it will be as widespread given the
5:19 am

unemployed and current unemployed individuals out of real no issue of their own the ability to become an entrepreneur and basically use those unemployment benefits to basically become entrepreneurs to create job of their own creation rather than just sending countless resumes which has not worked for them. >> we are seeing dwindling numbers of americans start their own business in the last number of years, ron. why is this a bad idea? >> i think it's just a fairy tale land idea we can take unemployed people struggling to pay their rent and turn them into entrepreneurs. people are struggling how to pay their rent not to start a business. takes $30,000 to start a business. that's coming from government numbers from the small business administration the idea we are going to take unemployed people, 40% of which are young people hey you are going to go and start a business give them $10,000. guess what with that $10,000 over 26 weeks you have to pay for your cost of living, too. we are talking about, you know, we have to pay for food and rent and the regular
5:47 am
living wages and how are you supposed to go start a business with that? it's a total joke. a way of washington and people like scott saying hey we came one this awesome idea and let's pat ourselves on the back. >> that sounds like the most uninformed way of thinking about entrepreneurship from someone who has never created a job before. t has a proven job number. three jobs for every successful business created under the program. secondly this isn't some big government issue this is a bipartisan legislative issue created on both sides of the hill. lastly the fact of the matter is businesses today are not $30,000 if you are a smart young entrepreneur. represent 400 of them. many of which have created hundreds of dollars of revenue out of good idea and hard work. if you are living to live on a couch and eat ramen noodles. it's not about saying this bloated touted government nonsense. have a new way forward. obviously the resume search is not working. i would never advocate something i did not do. i started my first business for less than a thousand dollars. within years it became
5:48 am
profitable and ultimately supported myself and my family. the fact of the matter is i think it's a very uninformed approach to make this generalized statement saying entrepreneurship can't be started for $10,000 people have done a lot more with less. >> my concern would be fraud. how do you prove you are starting a legitimate business and not just trying to continue the government dime? working in five states. delaware, maine, new york, new jersey and oregon. ron, you also say this is an attempt, in your opinion, to kind of redefine unemployment and perhaps help the numbers look a little better. >> well, exactly. it's this whole idea of trying to get more people on the unemployment roles. scott, if you want a grant process for young entrepreneurs. make a grant process. this is a safety net for people who are really struggle glick. whole idea we are going to create a grant process that works is a joke. you say also it creates on average three jobs per every one that succeeds. how many people have actually done this program? that's what i want to know. no one has ever mentioned that the fact of the matter is not
5:49 am
many people can actually qualify for it because young people and people unemployed don't have that type of capital to start a business you should know this as an entrepreneur. trust me, i talked -- >> i got to go, gentlemen. we could continue this the rest of the program. it's a good debate and interesting question. thanks. weigh in on twitter. do you think entrepreneurs should get unemployment benefits? dave briggs tv on twitter. coming up next, five decades after the war began. those who fought in vietnam are being honored tomorrow. a vietnam war hero himself, colonel ollie north is here to explain the significance of memorial day to tell us about the events he is participating in this weekend. also, nacho is here to give us a polo lesson. can't wait for that you won't want to miss this. juliet get on the horse. >> no. no, no, no, no. clayton will be getting on the horse. >> clayton gets a lesson coming up. ♪ one less lonely girl.

is what happens when you are running for president you have to try to get the military vote. who will get it republicans have done historically very well with the military. john mccain won by 10 points in 2000 will. he is out on the campaign trail tomorrow with mitt romney. will that make the difference? >> yeah. who knows what they say? will the rhetoric actually work or will the actions speak louder than words? >> obviously president obama has done well in the foreign policy area obviously getting usama bin laden. going after the likes of al awlaki and getting other al qaeda leaders and drone strikes have increased of course. that's what democrats say. these veterans are out in pockets around battleground states interestingly. if you look at florida. take a look at that that's an area that president obama won or then senator obama by four percentage points, colorado, ohio, virginia. and north carolina. all battleground states. of course, north carolina going to be home of the democratic national convention. they see that as a big battleground state. >> florida 1.6 million veterans. that's a big big state. get all those people out to vote that could change the course of the election.

drone strikes. on the flip side, the unemployment rate for those who have been in the military after 9/11 far higher than that of the general population in the country. a lot of the vets are telling me on twitter, on facebook. that they feel that the cuts being made to the defense department will increase their fees to try care and will cut their benefits. a lot of issues here. how will don't ask, don't tell play into this as well in terms of the military. there is a lot of factors involved. >> we debated this earlier on the program. >> sorry, thank you. >> with our political experts and here is what they said. i think wisconsin is going to be a battleground state because of some of the issues that the state faces. i still think it's a win for president obama if walker gets reelected. governor walker will win and wisconsin will be much closer obviously what was 10 points last time wisconsin is in play. remember the rnc chairman is from wisconsin. they have a good ground game.
6:05 am
>> sometimes we need to listen to the sound bites. that is about the governor walker recall election which we did debate. but not right there. so interesting, mitt romney leads right now according to the "wall street journal" numbers. 50 to 42. little bit narrower than the john mccain win. i think it's different because of some equations and factors involved. >> the interesting number here is among those who have served that's that number there was another poll though recently that just showed among those currently serving. the president is doing better than mitt romney, so it is really interesting to see how veterans, you know, view that and in those currently in the military. >> moving on to totally different topic. when i was a little kid i remember this story horrible story about etan patz little boy who was killed. we have been following this story the last couple of days. a suspect which has been charged which is chilling. this is a picture of the little boy.
6:06 am
apparently the suspect that is now being charged this guy hernandez knew intimate details that only the killer would know. and that was why -- that was really sort of what pushed this case forward. >> why does it matter? because there is the confessed killer of etan patz, paid doe hernandez receiving psychiatric care and on suicide watch, as a matter of fact. why does it matter? a confession is not enough to convict here in new york. it is enough to get an arrest. to make an arrest. but not enough to convict. they need more than that what might he know? sources to the "new york post" say he has told them something that only the killer would know. this is speculation what it could be? >> it could be scars, a birth mark, a mole who someone who could have seen the boy in that capacity may know. >> an item he was wearing. >> we also had legal debate between -- it wasn't really a
6:07 am

believe there is any basis for holding dr. afredi. we regret both the fact that he was convicted and the severity of his sentence. his help, after all, was instrumental in taking down one of the world's most notorious murderers. >> so colonel, who is your response to that? >> let's back up just a quick second. clayton, what we did see last night and over the course of the last two weeks, we have now seen something in the neighborhood of six to ten so-called militants killed in drone strikes as they are commonly called. fired missiles fired from american uavs. here's the downside with that. not only is it hurting our relationship with pakistan, it's a take-no-prisoners policy which yields you know u.s.

6:19 am
>> it is a special memorial day. this is the 50th anniversary commemoration of the beginning of the vietnam war. we were down there earlier this week interviewing one of the guys that i had the opportunity to serve with, doc john fowler. he was a remarkable american and served right next to me in a rightful company in vietnam. and what we did was document for the 58,282 that are on the wall the 1350 who are still unaccounted for, a welcome home that they are going to receive tomorrow, long overdue, but certainly a welcome home that's much deserved. >> when we try to frame and try to understand vietnam, you had quite a long time to reflect upon this and you think about the wars we are currently embroiled in right now, afghanistan just wrapping up and iraq and service members around the world protecting us, what do you think is important to remember about vietnam for those who maybe it didn't effect and weren't alive at the time. >> certainly the gold star
6:20 am
families were all affected, those who lost loved ones, those of us who led and had guys die in our arms over there like those with whom i served. the bottom line of it is that what happened to the vietnam veteran should never have happened and it ought never to happen again. one of the reasons why they are being welcomed home now is because of what happened to those who served in vietnam. >> i think it's a lesson we all learned regardless of whatever sort of politics gets in your head and how difficult we were in the iraq war, americans support the men and women in uniform regardless of politics. colonel oliver north, thank for joining us. always great to see you and sharing your thoughts. >> thank you. >> coming up on the show, wisconsin governor scott walker fighting for his political life as the recall election approaches. what impact will this have on the nation? it could be a bellwether.

flush. >> welcome back. california bishop steven blair recently retracted statements he made criticizing the catholic's lawsuit against health and human services over obamacare saying the lawsuits had his full support. our our next guest said media analysts are still falsely reporting a rift in the catholic church. joining us is the reader ever ewtn, raymond. good to see you, sir. >> good to see you, dave. >> the suggestion that the catholic church is not unanimously behind the lawsuits and some are overpoliticizing it, what is your reaction to that? >> i would agree. i don't understand why the media isn't covering this story. we are leading newspapers and newscast with this vatican leak story about a couple stories
6:25 am
stolen out of the papal apartment by a butler. yet this time the first time all the bishops of the united states have sued the federal government is getting page 8 or 19 coverage. i don't understand it. this touches on healthcare, education, social service outreach all across this country. a sixth of our healthcare. and if the bishops pull back, if the catholic church retreats from these areas, it will leave a huge gaping hole that i don't think the federal government could fill and it's a matter of religious liberty. how are they to exercise their ministry and what constitutes a religious organization. that's what the bishops are fighting about and suing over. >> why do you think it's been largely ignored by the mainstream media? >> i don't know. i think part of it is probably there's a political discomfort with an election coming up. the president can't lose these catholic swing voters. they gave him the victory the last time. but i think when you take on the entire catholic bishops, not a
6:26 am
political group we should come right out in say. the bishops are far from partisan. and this is something i think they reluctantly went into. about but when you have an administration trying to describe and define a religious entity that only that which hires and serves people of their own faith, those are fighting words and the bishops feel if that weed else's it's way into federal law it will affect their ministry and violate their religious liberties. and this weekend when we are celebrating memorial day, the veterans, men and women who have given their lives for these freedoms, the bishops are fighting for that religious freedom which is precious and sacred in america. >> let's get the opinion of cardinal timothy dolan. >> it's been going on for six months and we have been seen light yet. we aren't going to give up. maybe the lawsuits will prompt some progress. but so far we haven't seen any mitigation that the administration offered back in february didn't help us yet.
6:27 am
>> as to the suggestion earlier that i mentioned, that there is some rift in the catholic church because only 13 diocese of the 195 are participating in this lawsuit, is there some rift? >> no. there's no rift. you know, i interviewed a cardinal as well as archbishop lori who are at the very forefront of this. they told me, and i have seen it, every bishop in the united states has come out against thee the mandate. he is a member ever the 35 bishops who wrote this initial statement protesting the mandate and authorized the lawsuit. so if they are looking for division among the bishops, they better look elsewhere. this, i imagine, will be a long fight, and one that could hurt the administration going forward. and like timothy dolan, archbishop dolan, i don't understand why the administration hasn't offered some sort of accommodation that's authentic and not, you
6:28 am
know, this kind of bogus one they put forward. >> to be continued. raymond arroyo. >> my pleasure. >> he's been celebrating america and honoring our troops all morning long. we will check back in coming up. i've been crisscrossing the gulf for the past two years now. i can tell you, down here, people measure commitment by what's getting done. i'm mike utsler, and it's my job to make sure we keep making progress in the gulf. the twenty billion dollars bp committed has helped fund economic and environmental recovery. another fourteen billion dollars has been spent on response and cleanup. long-term, bp's made a five hundred million dollar commitment to the gulf of mexico research initiative... to support ten years of independent scientific research on the environment. results will continue to be shared with the public.
6:29 am
and we're making sure people know that the gulf is open for business - the beaches are beautiful, the seafood is delicious. last year, many areas even reported record tourism seasons. the progress continues, but that doesn't mean our job is done. bp's still here, and we're still committed to seeing this through.
