more il divo in the after the show show. log on. have a great day. bill: pretty good sound down there. monday, down to the wire in wisconsin. a recall vote rippling across the snogs. they will decide whether governor scott walker keeps his job or the democrat tom barrett steps in ain't takes it from him. this could have way ranging implications for union power in america and the race in november. welcome to "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. >> heather childers in for martha maccallum bill: she is in london making her way back. heather: this is a massive push to get costs under control. this was the scene last year when the issue sparked
massive protests, divided the badger state. both can dates are keeping pressure on until the polls close. >> we want to make sure we don't let up until 8:00 on june 5th. >> we have thousands of people on the streets this weekend and so we're very, very positive. bill: steve brown leading our coverage. good morning to you. president obama did not visit or campaign in wisconsin. what did tom barrett, the democrat, say about that? >> reporter: the national media particularly made more than a little bit of a deal about the president not coming during the 50-day ramp up during the recall election. tom barrett himself says he has gotten plenty of help from the obama campaign. >> i did not ask him to come out here. he, i understand that he is running a country and he has his own campaign. i will say that his administration has been supportive in that his campaign apparatus was helpful with volunteers.
we've gotten a lot of help from the democratic national committee. >> reporter: the all campaign sent out e-mails to supporters in neighboring states even to come into the state and help with get-out-the-vote efforts last few weeks. plenty of help but just not the president personally. bill: what does scott walker say about his future if this recall election is referendum on his time in governor here? >> reporter: it is a situation where the governor really doesn't have a choice. he has been governor over two years. there have been substantial changes to state government and he was at the lead of all of that so he has embraced it. if it is a referendum the governor says, he is good with that. >> we have a plan. our opponents don't have a plan. their only plan is to attack me. we'll finish off the last couple days of the campaign talking about our plans and vision to move the state forward. >> reporter: ultimately this race will be a turnout election. so narrowly divided both parties believe they have identified every single voter in this state and
certainly they have all been contacted one way or another leading up to tomorrow's big day. bill: they have been gearing up for this for a while. thank you. we'll talk to steve brown a little later. steve brown in madison. heather: we'll look what this recall is all about. two years ago walker beat his recall opponent with 52% of the vote. in february 2011 the walker addressed the state's budget shortfall by cushing election bargaining rights for unions and i can trickering massive protest. bill: the implication on the race for the white house possibly in november. david axelrod, serving as president obama's senior strategist, says the dnc and even bill clinton were in wisconsin to support barrett as we heard. >> the fact that it is competitive says something about where voters are in that state. we've got hundreds of lawyers up there for voter protection programs.
so, you know, we're invested in it and we're very much in the corner of mayor barrett. bill: voter frauved also becoming a concern in that state. we'll have a bit more on that a bit greater in the show. heather: if you didn't know, only two other governors in history faced a recall. both were forced from office. scott walker trying not to be the third. the first instance was way back until 1921. that is when republican governor lynn frazier was recalled in north dakota. in 2003 california's democratic governor gray davis was voted out over the state's growing deficit. california voters put in arnold schwarzenegger, put him into office then. bill: so woe are number three tomorrow. what do you think at home. do you think wisconsin's recall results will matter in november? you can take our newsroom poll at foxnews.com /americasnewsroom. it is online right now. you can weigh in and we'll bring results a bit later in the program. so you can do that.
heather: and to the other big story today, folks on wall street buckling up because it could be a bumpy ride tore the markets today. world markets tumbling ahead of the 9:30 open following friday's dismal jobs report. the dow ending friday with a plunge. a 275-point dive, wiping out all the gains for the year and raising fears that the world's number one economy is sliding back into recession. stuart varney is anchor of "varney & company" on the fox business network and he joins us now with more. stu, tell us what we can expect? >> you can expect a nail-biting time from here on out, heather. a lot of people are using the expression seems like 2008 all over again. item one, all over the world economies are slowing down. america, the largest economy in the world in particular. the terrible jobs numbers on friday as you said there, heather and we're weakening, this economy is weakening. of course europe is in recession. china, india, brazil, all of
them slowing down. then you've got item two, which is this, spain needs a bailout. it is europe's fourth largest economy. it needs money. it is going cap in hand to the germans to have them pay up. spain joins greece, portugal and ireland on the list of bailed out countries. that is a crisis. you add it all up you have a crisis on two fronts, global slowdown, european chaos, investors are anxious, man on the street is anxious and so is president obama's re-election campaign, heather. heather: wow! how will my 401(k) look after today? crisis as well? >> couple hours ago i would have said your 401(k) would have gone down, but there is hints, speculation that angela merkel will open up her pocketbook and spend some money in europe to bailout the spaniards. that is good news for our stocks. we may open a couple of points higher but that's it. your 401(k), when you read the latest statement is
going to be down. heather: we'll take that little bit of good news to end it. we'll tune in into you later with more. stuart varney, thanks. bill: the news has been qloom any of late. only 69,000 jobs, the smallest in a year's time. you saw the jobs report, nosediving last friday, 275. worst day of the year. the dow lower since any point since december as we await the opening bell. heather: develop now. george zimmerman back behind bars. his attorneys expected to seek a new bond hearing. zimmerman is facing second-degree murder charges in the shooting of trayvon martin. he surrendered to police after his bond was revoked. the judge alleged zimmerman misled the court on his finances. sheriff's office says he will be treated as a high-profile defendant. >> george will be housed in administrative confinement a single cell arrangement
exactly the way, in a manner which he was housed during his last incarceration. we have been since his release, we've been in direct contact with mr. zimmerman. we have been in constant, or continual electronic contact and consistent telephonic contact. heather: zimmerman has pleaded not guilty saying that he shot martin in self-defense. bill: getting word, strong earthquake hitting indonesia shaw, southeast asia. that quake causing tall buildings to sway in the capital city of jakarta on the island of java. measuring 6.1 in magnitude. no reports of casualties or damage. scientists say there is no threat of a tsunami. indonesia has frequent earthquakes due to its
location in the ring of fire in the pacific ocean a string of volcanoes. we'll watch that. heather: we're watching this. emergency crews combing through a horrific scene in the african nation of nigeria a passenger jet carrying 153 people just slams into buildings in a residential area near the air port in the country's capital of lagos. there are no survivors. rescue crews fear a lot of people may have been killed on the ground as well. military officials say the pilot reported some engine trouble just before attempting to land. witnesses tell fox news that the plane appeared to lose control after the landing gear just didn't extend. bill: closer to home now, a painful reminder of the dangers firefighters face as they battle these flames in the american west. two pilots are dead in the state of it utah after their airtanker crashed. the pilots dropping fire restandardant on a 5,000 acre fire in the utah-nevada border that is where the
plane went down. >> there is a lot of mountainous country out there. when i've been out there the woods are very thick. this is tough, tough place to fight a fire. bill: that fire began friday after a lightning strike. investigators are working on the cause of that crash. they could use a little moisture out there. heather: those are a few of the stories we're following in america a l's newsroom. a different fire burning out of control in another state. why it could get a whole lot worse before it get the better. bill: getting international attention in syria, the president of that country now saying his forces are not responsible for the most her risk attacks just last week. heather: and it could be the ditz pointing jobs report. could it mean more stimulus is on the way? here's team romney. >> we gave the keys to the largest economy in the world to a person who did not have any prior executive leadership experiences ♪

heather: welcome back. there are no takers for the body of an accused murderer and kidnapper. the remains of adam mayes now in the hands of the mississippi state crime lab. police say he killed a mother and daughter and kidnapped the woman's two other daughters before committing suicide. the crime lab has had the body since last month. his family refused to have anything to do with the final arrangements. if no one claims the body after six months, it will be returned to his home county in mississippi. >> 14 minutes past the hour on a monday morning. the latest job report from last week raising new talk of more stimulus possibly from washington. may's unemployment rate, 8.2% for the month. after december 2007, unemployment rose steadily for two years but has been falling since the end of 2009. and the disappointing numbers last month getting attention from both the romney and obama campaigns. have a listen. >> a million jobs sitting on that table in congress right now they could move on. they need to get off their
hands and stop rooting for failure. that is what is going on right now. >> this is a hostile environment for job creation in our economy. frankly it has a sense of urgency in terms of this year's election to be able to turn things around because the only thing that will change it are changing the policies and that means changing the person in the white house. bill: that was part of the debate sunday morning. with me, marcia blackburn, house energy and commerce committee and house majority whip. what is your solution. >> less regulation, plus less litigation, plus tax regulation creates. we're so overregulated. bill: you're hearing from democrats saying there are a million jobs on the table right now in congress. is that true? >> no. see congress doesn't create jobs. it creates the environment for jobs growth and in the clip that you just showed, ed gillespie said it right.
this is a hostile environment. when i am out in my district what i hear first and foremost from job creators is this. we're afraid to hire. we don't know what will happen with obamacare. the epa is regulating us to the point we can't manufacture. you can't loan money. there are all these problems that are taking place within the regulatory environment, that make it very difficult. there is uncertainty about taxation. so what we need to do is get government out of the way, get its hands off your wallet and --. bill: you heard what stephanie cutter said in the debate with ed gillespie. republicans especially in the house are rooting for failure. >> that is just so wrong. that is an outright wrong and that they shouldn't say things like that. what we're doing is rooting for america to succeed. we know that the best way to do that is to get government out of the way and let the private sector do what the private sector has always done and that is to create
jobs. bill: five months away from a national election. >> yeah. bill: what can congress do between now and then? because you have democrats in the senate hold majority. house republicans, it just does not appear that anything will get done, is that a fair assessment? >> well, i think that is a fair assessment but wouldn't it be great if we decided first of all the senate would take up a budget which is the house has done and would pass it. number two, ask the question we've been asking for months now, where are the jobs? this is the 40th straight month where we have had over 8% unemployment. let's start to roll back some of the regulation, listen to the people out there trying to hire people and create jobs. get rid of some of the uncertainty. cut what the federal government spends. actually make cuts into what we spend and pass a budget based on that. good solid steps. bill: you hear also republicans are getting in the way in the house. you run the clock out right now. make it worse for the administration. and give mitt romney the
upper hand. what would you say to that. >> that is just wrong. because what we're trying to do is get the budget passed, get some of these regulations off the books, it's not getting in the way. if they want to say we're getting in the way of something we're getting in the way of increasing size of government. what we are doing is trying to get out of the way of the private sector and that's what we're going to continue to do. bill: what do you think about the idea of more stimulus dollars? i don't know if that comes from printing more from the fed which would be the third round for that. or even new legislation which probably will not pass with the current makeup of the house. >> you're right. when you look at the fed policy i think that a third round, qe3, let's not put more stimulus. let's not print more money. we're already borrowing 40 cents of every single dollar that we spend. what we need to do is show fiscal restraint and tell people the honest truth about what is happening with the budget. not have any budget gimmicks. hard-working taxpayers are
looking at us and saying you need to buckle down. bill: we'll see you in washington again very soon. >> yes you will. bill: enjoy your time in new york. marsha blackburn, the republican from tennessee. thank you. >> thank you. bill: heather what is next. heather: exciting news you want to stay tuned for. it is called a smartbomb in the fight for breast cancer. we'll tell you why the drug works and why doctors are so hopeful. bill: an emergency landing on tape. a firefighting plane coming in and it was hot. the dramatic end in a moment. almost tastes like one of jack's cereals. fiber one. uh, forgot jack's cereal. [ jack ] what's for breakfast? um... try the number one! [ jack ] yeah, this is pretty good.
with the landing gear. it flew the plane for almost two hours to burn off more fuel before touching down there the plane damaged on one side you see, but thunk fully all on board are save and okay. hopefully they can get back in the air some time soon. they need repairs after landing on that. heather: some new demonstrations this morning in egypt after the verdict in the trial of former dictator hosni mubarak. mubarak got a life sentence but his two sons were acquitted. it all comes at a delicate time, only two weeks before egypt hold as runnoff in its presidential election. connor powell live in our middle east bureau in jerusalem? will the verdict be appealed. >> reporter: heather, there is a great deal of anger and outrage in egypt. the top prosecutor told egyptian tv that he will appeal the verdict. the outrage is many people in egypt feel while mubarak
was convicted the overall mubarak regime has been essentially committed. many wanted mubarak to face the death penalty and only got life in prison and somebody who is sick and not expected to live that much longer anyways. the outrage is still there. mubarak was convicted alongwith his to have security chief for failing to prevent the death of 900 or so protesters. but his two sons and mubarak were acquitted of corruption charges. six other top police officers were acquitted all together. this really created an atmosphere and environment in egypt where there is a real sense that mubarak is receiving a lighter punishment than he should for the crimes he committed over his three decades in power. that the overall regime is skating off and getting abay free. that really does have a lot of people in egypt angered about the future of the revolution. heather? heather: what is the impact on the runnoff election? >> reporter: oh, it is really tough to tell in part because, egypt doesn't have a long history of elections
but mohammed shafix. the former mubarak era prime minister has been essentially running against more haumed morsy. the muslim brotherhood candidate saying the muslim brotherhood will take egypt back to the dark ages. there is back and forth who can lead egypt going forward and restore the sense of the revolution which appeared to many egyptians fallen off the rails and taken a turn for the wrong direction. there is a lot of concern where this revolution will end up going, heather. heather: thank you very much. conor powell reporting live from our jerusalem bureau. bill: who knows how long it will take to work this out. heather: we watched riots unfold over the weekend. remarkable footage. bill: in a moment, breast cancer may have met its match. a so-called smartbomb that has canner patients and doctors optimistic. we'll tell you what that is all about. heather: it is an out of

airport. tripoli international airport is forcing flights to be diverted to the capitol's military airport nearby. this group, 60 some odd miles southeast of tripoli, demanding the release of one of their lead that's disappeared two nights ago. the situation around the airport is very tense. tanks are surrounding the building. no one is allowed into the building. this follows a year of unrest in libya as you recall and killing of qaddafi. we're watching that story move across the wires right now. also a small army battling a wildfire that has now become the largest in new mexico's history. more than a thousand firefighting are trying to control the flames burning in and around hila national forest. this is huge. only 17% contained. maria molina is in the fox weather center. how are you, maria. how goes it in new mexico.
>> the problems started before the wildfire started out there. we have drought conditions in place. very little rainfall, low humidity and drought temperatures and you have all the fuel in place across the southwest including the state of new mexico and portions of arizona. utah currently under dry conditions and also nevada. we have a severe to extreme drought across the region that is providing fuel for the wildfire and that dry brush in place. we're not seeing much in the way of precipitation. we have a front that will dig down and increasing the wind across portions of the southwest. new mexico right now not included under red flag warning but we have it in place further across portions of western colorado and likely we'll see it spreading into eastern portions of new mexico as the storm system continues to pick up the wind. we're talking about wind gusts in ses of 40 miles per hour. bad news for the wildfires not helping to put them out in across new mexico heading
into tuesday. otherwise temperatures are very hot out here into triple digits across arizona and nevada. well into the 90 a's cross new mexico. that is not good news either, bill. bill: certainly not. maria, keep an eye on that. they're are dealing with that thing for weeks right now. 9:32. >> now for really good news a possible breakthrough in treating one of the deadliest diseases, breast cancer. doctors successfully testing a drug that acts as a smart boehm. it hones in on the dangerous cells without damaging the healthy ones. how big is this development? here, dr. steven garner of mt. sinai hospital who joins us with more details. how significant is this breakthrough? >> this is a major break through. it is something we've been looking for, a way to kill the cancer and not make patients sick. right now when we give the patients the poisons it kills not only cancer cells and good cells. anybody that has gone through this, their fingernails fall off, their hair falls off, sick and
nauseous and diarrhea and vomiting. we have a bite opportunity to change all that. heather: no side-effects associated with it? >> very few side-effects nothing you would notice. heather: how does it work? we mentioned it hones in on the cancer cells. >> the td-1. it was created by scientists and what they did they created a anti-body that finds cancer cells in bloodstream and body and the breast. they attach a poison to this anti-body and the anti-body goes up to the cancer cell. the cancer cell recognizes it and opens up itself and poison gets put in. it fakes out the cancer cell. sort of like a trojan horse delivered across enemy lines, the killers? he is delivering killers across the right to the cancer cell. heather: very good analogy there. amazing stuff. the other benefit, the obvious benefit, people are living longer. >> right. it is three months longer, nine months compared to six months.
you say what is three months? three months is a lot to somebody dying of cancer. at two years, about 30% more people are alive taking this new medication than the standard one that we had. so definitely is showing a lot of promise. i think we have to point out this is not for all breast cancer. this is for about 20 to 25% of cases. a lot of women will be calling in with other types of breast cancer. this is not for them. heather: yeah. >> this will cost about 100,000 a year. heather: does it matter what stage the cancer is in? >> this was tried with moderate to advanced cancers but probably will work for all the stages for this particular type, called her-2. women should is ask the doctor if they have her-2. this drug should be out in the next couple months. heather: we say 130,000 woman are diagnosed with breast canister. >> even more. 230,000. estrogen and providing food and cancer is growing. we cut off the supply by giving estrogen blockers. those highly effective
medications the whole trick with breast cancer is not one disease. it may be up to 20 different types of diseases. how do we come up it with the treatment? we must personalize the treatment. not one size fits all. heather: anyone that can benefit from this wants to know when it is available. it is not available right now talk about availability and cost? >> if you're under trials you have access to it. if you're not these trials. you will not get it for probably a year. fda said they will try to release breast cancer drugs that show promise earlier. they will fast track it. within a year people will have it. the cost, we don't know who will pay for it. it will be $100,000 approximately a year. we may have up to 50,000 women taking it. it will be a big expense. but can't put a price on a human life. heather: your advice to women, should they would go to their doctor and ask about this? >> anyone with her-2 should ask for it. always good to talk about it.
get update what they're doing and make sure their treatment is working because breast cancer can change. you can have one type and change into another with mutations. you don't want to accept the one diagnosis you were given. heather: certainly promising news you gave us. dr. steven garner, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> bill? >> now we have the star of the family feud, richard dawson. bill: looking at him makes me smile. heather: yeah. bill: survey says. he is a tv icon. he left us now. richard dawson kept them laughing with quick wit finally succumbing to battle with cancer. famously known for kissing all the female contestants on the "family feud". >> something that comes in a summer storm. you gave me the answer. no. [laughter] our survey said. [buzzer] bad news you need 172 points
to win the money. the good news is, you're the man to do it. bill: and he was the perfect man for that job. producers believe he kissed 20,000 women over the years. heather: wow. bill: all on the cheek. dawson said he did it to wish them luck. he was known to tv fans on "hogan's heroes". heather: i wasn't aware of that. i found that over the weekend. bill: we remember the life of richard dawson, 79 years old. and the survey says, he was --. heather: meanwhile, syria's hard-line leader blaming outside forces on a massacre that killed more than 100 innocent civilians. we'll tell how he said is responsible. bill: also a string of disappointing economic news, getting the attention of the white house. also back at chicago headquarters. is it time to hit the panic button? fair and balanced debate and a great panel set to take
heather: welcome back. developing right now in "america's newsroom", a wave of drug violence hit as popular mexican resort. at least eight people killed in acapulco. police say the victims were killed in different incidents all across the city. in canada, police making an arrest in a deadly shopping mall shooting but not releasing the person's name. one person was killed and seven others wounded in the shooting in toronto. the nation's newest miss usa winner is comes from rhode island. she likes to play the cello. describes herself as a nerd and looks up to hollywood icon, audrey hepburn. congratulations to her. i think she looks like maria molina. bill: we'll get the side by side working on that. heather: i think we should. bill:ics.
bill: airport in tripoli the nation's capital taken over by a rebel group. this word crossing 15 minutes ago. we're told the situation is tense. tanks are sure rounding the building. no one is allowed in the building. this after a year of unrest in the country. we have the someone from the research for defense and democracy. we'll talk about syria. what do you make of unrest in libya. the government itself, what's left of it can not take care of the airport? >> that is one of the unfortunate fallouts of the intervention in libya, the fissures and society are coming out to the forefront. we see inability to have any central authority over the rest of the country. we'll have to keep an eye on it. bill: what is the effect of that, tony, if this continues without any real authority? >> obviously you have the potential for lawlessness and, you know, it could develop a lot more in worse
ways. however, it is still very much an unfolding situation and the one thing about libya is unlike syria, for instance, it's very much still on the periphery. whereas syria is very much in the center of things. bill: you know islamist fighters, there have been a pretty good number come out of libya. they joined the battle in afghanistan, pakistan, to a lesser degree? sure. bill: iraq you could argue. what have you noticed and watched as they jockey for their new position? >> everybody is jock keg. whatever islamist and jihadist groups in africa and as well as tribal elements in libya as well. everybody now is trying to carve out a space for themselves in libya. this is just going to be, like i said an unfolding situation until some sort of a central authority takes place. bill: we're watching that. we're also watching this. meanwhile in syria, the leader of that country speaking out for the first time since a massacre left more than 100 civilians
dead. nearly half the victims in the massacre were children. their bodies found bound. many shot at close range. president bashir assad blaming foreign-backed terrorists and extremists for the bloodshed despite mounting evidence that pro-regime militias carried out the killings. tony, he made a speech for the first time since january. that suggests he is ready for a fight . what do you make of that. >> nothing new really. he has been saying terrorists have been behind the popular uprising since day one. unfortunately as heinous as the massacre has been he has been doing this the last 15 months. this sun with particular incident that is particularly blood-thirsty and blood-curling because of the kids that have involved. however this has been his conduct over the last 15 months anyway. he is going to fight to the very end. there is no doubt about that. bill: so you have the united nation that is not moving on this. i'm not sure if you believe nato has a role or not,
given the gee it graphic position there of syria. you have russia who said forget about it, we're not going to help the u.n. or the u.s. get in there. china similar. is the world now going to sit back and watch these two sides go at it for an indefinite period of time? >> we can talk about the u.n. and talk about nate know. the fact of the matter is without u.s. leadership nothing happens. that is just the way it is. the and the problem is that the obama administration has decided that it's going to sort of lean on the russians to find some sort of a solution for syria. that i think is a major misreading. if they think they're going to quote, unquote, shame the russians, that is very misguided. russians i remind you what they did in 2002 and 2004 and theater attacks in moscow and the beslan school when they shot people up regardless of collateral damage. they will not be shamed into anything. i don't think it is their interest to interfere on the
side of the u.s. and syria as well. until the obama administration realizes this and takes leadership on the situation in syria, nothing is going to happen. bill: what do you think those conversations are like at the white house? >> from the leaks that are coming out it is surprising how little there is in terms of strategic thinking on this. if you heard the secretary of state the other day saying that, you know, we know the syrians are not going to listen to us but maybe they might listen to the russians. i think this sort of thinking and hoping about some sort of a russian role in changing assad's mind is thoroughly misguided. bill: wow! i don't know if he will make another speech or not. perhaps he will, perhaps he won't but the two sides are now digging in. >> right. bill: what you find based on history when the mass cures -- massacres happen and the world does nothing and the smoke clears and you find out the true loss of life after it's over these world leaders kick themselves in the behind and said i should have done something. think about bill clinton in africa in the mid-'90s.
is that what is unfolding here or too soon for that? >> it is not yet at that scale. but definitely, look, syria is a divide of the society along various cleavages. there is sectarian and ethnic divides and other social divides. so now what is going on is that the regime is implicating the minority to which he belongs in these massacres. they're arming villagers. they're using the alawhite paramilitary to intentionally inflame the situation and detour ture people from taking action against him. as long as this persists, and the administration acknowledges this will make it more bloody and intense moving forward. bill: tony, thank you for your help this morning. fox news.dom/america as newsroom. to the right side there is a bya box or shoot me an e-mail at foxnews.com or bya,

arrived essentially what is the vietnamese pentagon. it is called k-2,000. there were warm smiles from the minister of defense who met him there. if you have any question how controlled vietnam still is, the questions were very controlled. they were asked at the press conference. there was even a height requirement we're told for the soldiers who marched in the parade that met panetta. the exchange you referred to that was ununusual, for the first time since the end of the war there was an exchange of war artifacts. the vietnamese gave secretary panetta some letters that had been taken off the body of a sergeant, sergeant steve flaherty of columbia, south carolina who had been killed in combat. he was one the 101st. those letters were taken by the north vietnamese and used for propaganda today purposes. we've seen the letters. they were presumably written to his wife or girlfriend, a woman by the name of betty.
they described the horrors of the war and difficulties. they described the use of napalm. those have been used for propagantic purposes. now they will be returned to the flaherty family. panetta on the other hand presented a diary of a north vietnamese soldier that had been stolen by a u.s. marine back in 1969. so it was a very warm, interesting breakthrough in terms of relations today at the minister of defense, ministry of defense. heather: the vietnamese also offered more sites for exploration, is that true? >> reporter: that's right. it is very interesting, they, the minister of defense announced that they would allow the u.s. military access to three new sites where the u.s. military believes that there are missing, the remains of some of the missing from the war. there are still 1284 -- u.s. servicemembers who are missing in vietnam.
and the u.s. military has not had access to since they have been searching for those missing all the way back to 1975. today the minister of defense in an effort at an olive branch to secretary panetta offered to open three sites that the u.s. military thinks they have eyewitnesses who can show them where some of the missing remains are from the war. heather: thank you very much, jennifer griffin reporting live from hanoi. halfway around the world some a couple problems with our signal there. bill: thank you for being patient with us. we're also getting this. four men just convicted of planning a terrorist attack on a danish newspaper that published cartoons of the prophet mohammed. the story goes back to 2005, some seven years ago. they are residents of sweden and north african, middle east origin. they were arrested in 2010 only hours before they planned to carry out a shooting spree. sentencing expected a later in the day. they could face 16 years in prison. that is just crossing now.

monday i'm bill hemmer, welcome here. martha is making her way back from london. she was with the queen over the weekend. heather: yes, as i said friday, i am with the king. bill: the question is the king of what? heather: that is a good question. i am heather childress. a governor starting a political civil war by taking on union. mr. walker says that wisconsin citizens understand tough decisions have to be made. >> people appreciate the fact that we took on these challenges and they want to see us stay in office and continue to take them on for our working taxpayers. >> i want people to understand we have raoeurbl use, ther real issues, even if you are using scott walkers own numbers his scott performance is the absolute worst of any governor in the midwest. bill: let's take a big view of wisconsin right now. we'll let you know how things
have gone over the past several national election cycles if you by into the theory and argument that wapbs in wisconsin tell what happens in wisconsin tells us a lot about what will happen in november. this was in 2008. go back to 2004, though, this is john kerry and george bush. kerry won the state but only 50-49. that is a difference of some 11, maybe 12,000 votes in the end. if you went back to the year 2000 you would find between al gore and george bush even a closer race, looks about 4500 votes separated the tour with al gore winning that state. brit hume is our fox news political analyst, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. bill: how do you see this breaking. >> reporter: if the polling is right walker has been ahead in every single poll, including the
most recent poll. they had 50-47 for walker which i would say is a reasonably good result for him. all other things being equal he should win. the margin will matter, people will read a lot into the margin. but i think there is a danger in treating this race as the bell weather wetter that a lot of people are saying. because the idea for the recall was inspired by union disaffection and anger over the walker reforms, it had to do with labor bargaining rights the campaigns have not been about that. they've been touched on but they haven't been central to the campaign. so this has ended up being let's a contest about that set of reforms than it originally appeared it would be. bill: do you think it fits into this classic debate about how government should or should not be involved in the direction of americans? >> reporter: yeah, to some extent it does. bill: less public sector on the
public side and more freedom to make laws that attract more businesses to the state as ow as opposed to democrats to say you have to fight for the workers to make sure their wages are firm. >> reporter: that's how it will be seen. what i will say, bill, is that walker has some pretty good results. you heard tom barrett in the sound byte saying that his job creation was the worst in the midwest, but jobs are up in wisconsin, and the budget situation, which was what got the reform started, is much alleviated. so he has -- he has a case to make that his results have been good. in presidential races results are almost always controlling, not so much in tkpwaou gubernatorial race, but it will be a big factor. if he loses after showing reasonably good results from the reforms he undertook that have so angered the left, i think a lot of politicians around the country may look at that and say, jeez, even if it works it
doesn't work politically, that is thing i think republicans will be looking at and wondering about. bill: we all sit back and wait for the results. thank you, nice to see you on a monday, brit hume from washington. what do you think at home? go to our website. will the call results matter in november? you think yes, 90% think it will make a difference, only 8% think it will not be much in the long run. we'll bring you more results through the hour here. heather: heading into tomorrow's election meanwhile governor walker and others raising concerns about the possibility of voter fraud with more than 180,000 a 180,000 absentee ballots out, could there be problems at the poll? they have already opened a fraud investigation. we are live with more on that. >> reporter: there are allegations of voter fraud in
this race and the election hasn't happened yet, a race with national implications that pits republican governor scott walker defending his office against democrat tom barrett. tom barrett says voter fraud could affect the race tomorrow. he said i thought in presidential elections it means you probably have to win with at least 53% of the vote to account for fraud. one or two points potentially. a voter fraud investigation in this race is now underway where allegedly fraudulent absentee ballot applications were sent in. they were trying to sign up voters in the city of delafield. election officials told us it could be a way to steal votes. >> it concerns me that people are out there requesting ballots or other people and i found it odd that they requested a ballot or an address they don't live at. i thought they may be out there waiting for the mail person to
come and interes intercepting somebody's mail. >> would that be voter fraud. >> definitely i think it would be yes. >> reporter: it's all being investigated. heather: are they confident they can prevent fraud. >> reporter: state officials say they will guard against any possible fraud tomorrow. they have checks and balances. kevin kennedy oversees the election. >> we have the tools to identify and prosecute that, but we really don't have the systemic fraud. you're going to have someone who tries to get in the system and we're going to catch them. >> reporter: they say that voter fraud is rare. there were only 20 votes deemed ineligible in the 2008 wisconsin election. if you suspect voter fraud we want to know. voter fraud at fox news.com is

should say, in the amount of time we've been peeking here down 44 points. where do you see this heading? >> our markets can go significantly lore. the bounce this morning was a knee-jerk bounce to get a feel for the. we have to have resolution. the powers that be the federal reserve, the ecb, the european version that prints money, germany and perhaps even the president here, all of these powerful entities have to step up to the plate and do something beside lip-service and they better do it real soon because we are in very, very bad shape right now. heather: thank you very much. we appreciate it, charles, and remember you can catch charles every day on varney & company on the fox business network. bill: he's bringing the pain. you put varney and payne together. five months to go, what to the

month and wouldn't be continuing. 69,000 is obviously worse than they expected. bill: what is the political impact of this. kristen powers, columnist, daily bees. a police at analyst, also national correspondent for news. you have the singular longest title. >> what the president has used to rationalize his record is we are on the right track. the numbers that came out on friday really stall that narrative. i think what you have now is the obama campaign who is begin to realize not only can they not just run against romney, not only can they ca cannot run against this positive project
tree, they have to run against themselves. they are playing defense. the obama campaign is not used to that. bill: they are reaching for the button but not pressing it yet. >> they should have been but they have not done it yet. bill: should where they? >> they should be very concerned at a minimum. it's a little early to be panicking because the elections is not a while. the things causing them serious ken's are not jus them serious concern is not just the job numbers. bill: you understand the reality is that jobs are stuck in the mud and the economy is stuck in the mud. >> what i would say that they should be panicked about is their attacks on mitt romney's business record have failed, and so this was supposed to be their attempt to define him, and they have not done a good job at it. and i'd say they've more than
not done a good job, they just completely failed at it and have been undermined by pretty significant surrogates on the democratic side. that is something they have to go back to the drawing board and figure out what they are going to do to draw this distinction between romney and him. bill: tony you have two big arrows in the quiver. you have bain capital, and now you have the record of romney as governor of massachusetts, will that work. >> two issues the mitt romney campaign has an opportunity to highlight their record. he had a 4.6% unemployment rate, a net growth in jobs in massachusetts, that is much better than what the president is dealing with on the national level right now. bain capital, you're in the talking about republicans coming up with the most powerful counter narrative, the most powerful rebuttal to this which has come from powerful democrats, where bill clinton
called romney's business record sterling -- bill: and go public again the next morning to add to it. tony finish. >> i just have one other thing. kristen is right. they are trying out all these themes and attack lines. one of them is romney is an extremist. the rasmussen poll that came out show that most americans don't believe that. 52% think he's mainstream. bill: now you have these hits on his record as governor, a republican governor and one of the top five liberal states in america, we could agree on that who governed as a moderate? what is the affect on independent voters when they learn of that record? >> this is the problem, which is why the obama campaign was going after the bain record, not after the record in massachusetts, because what is going to happen is the more people get educated about that, the more independents are going to find out that he was a very moderate
governor, and this goes completely against -- they've had so many different narratives but the one where he was a right-wing extremist. >> you think that independent voters once they hear about this will support him, is that where you're headed? >> i think they will consider him certainly. this is a decision between two people and you have to decide who do i think is better to handle the problems that face the country. i think it will make him more appealing if people understand his really quite moderate reco record. >> mitt romney raised the same amount of money as president obama. romney has the potential to stay toe-to-toe with him during the rest of this campaign. bill: thank you very much. heather. heather: his job is on the line. wisconsin governor scott walker sitting down with fox' neil cavuto. kneel will join us live from madison with what the governor

these are very unusual events in american history, only three governors have had to face this. this one this is he can buck what normally happen in these events where the governor gets reswrebgted by the rest departments of his state. these polls have a wide swing of possible error up or down 4 points. many argue that the governor is outside that area of possible defeat here. he says that that is because the economy, whatever is going on nationally, the trend he says is in week unemployment has been coming down, 6.7%, well below the national average. he feels that some of the numbers have been going his way as well. jobs have been created. he says that will help him. we shall see. bill: neil, from a business perspective, an economics perspective, maybe with the state budget or taxes or all of that, what is changing there in wisconsin? >> well, he argues even though
unions have painted him to be this draconian cutter, one leader said he was intent on disep disem ph bowling them as we knew them, that if he didn't reign in cuts there would be hell to pay. he went ahead by wipe out collective bargaining. effectively what the governor has done here is leave it up to employee and union operations to vote yes or no whether they want to be part of that union on the public side. the question here is did he go too far? it's eye tracted enormous outside interest. unions from all over the nations have channeled millions into this race. the governor himself has had a lot of big billionaires channel a lot of money into this race. in all it is about $70 million, which doubles what was spent on
this gubernatorial race when he was first elected a little bit more than, what, 15, 16 months ago. thins have changed might t mightily. and the money at stake could not be more a cute. bill acute. bill: we have your interview with him. >> for all the hype, president clinton was here a week ago. i said it's more interesting to me when the president of the united states is in the twin cities, when he was about the same time in chicago, just south of the wisconsin boar, i think it's kind of confusion to voters here, because they wonder why won't you come in two years the same person i'm running against now was my opponent back then an came in and campaigned for the mayor at that point. i think it's a sign there is real concern. voters tell me they voted for my
opponent or they tell me they are democrats, but in each case they are voting for me now either because they like the person who takes on the tough problems or some of them tell me they don't like the recall process. i think the president and his folks just want to shy away from that. >> reporter: it is a tough position for the president to be in. oddly enough in this state, the president enjoys very high approval ratings, north of 55%, the approval ratings that scott walker enjoys. the president probably felt it would do him more harm than good to get in the middle of this. very few undecideds here. it's about each side getting out its respective votes. a lot of groups supporting governor wal walker are trying hard. the unions are trying hard. tomorrow night he will be safely in that office without a threat of being thrown out. bill: that is interesting on the approval ratings. thank you.

prophet's head on the body of a dog. al-qaida have used their cartoons in propaganda recruit and plot against the cartoonist. there were surveillance tapes where they specifically talk about cutting the troeft throats of infidels, hel infidels heather. there have been at least three plots targeting the cartoonist. last year a man was sensed t sentenced to seven years after plotting to blak break into his home and murder him. two others were also named in the plot targeting that

[ whirring and beeping ]
bill: now to this dangerous swift water rescue off the side of a bridge in maryland. watch it here now. crews set up a complicated system of ropes and pulleys to lower themselves over the side of that bridge, eventually reaching three teenagers trapped by the rising river. all three kids had hypothermia, they were treated for that, they are expected to be okay, and they can thank these guys for making it happen. heather: new developments in the trayvon martin case. lawyers for george zimmerman are hoping for a new bond hearing after his bond was revoked and he was ordered back to jail. the judge said zimmerman was
less than truthful about his finances, and that is just one of the factors zimmerman's attorney is eager to address. >> he's solemn, obviously, he's worried continually about his safety, having to come out of hiding is a concern of his, but i think he also realizes the judge's concern now that we have all had on the defense team a chance to look at all of the evidence, he understands the court's concerns, he understands the state's concerns and we're going to address those, and say what i think needs to be said to address them with judge lester. heather: let's bring in we will r-r in lis wiehl, and joey jackson. will they get a new bond hearing? >> they probably will get a new bond hearing but i don't think he should get a bond at this point. don't forget the first time around he got a really, really low bond and was able to selfsupport and that's fine but
there is a trust that is built there. when you violate the trust, which i think he did. zimmerman did not report to the judge, about $135,000 that he has in his legal defense fund and he says i have no money, i'm totally destitute. that wasn't true, so he violated the trust with the judge, the judge isn't going to like that. heather: could it have been an honest mistake? what if the money wasn't his. >> i don't think judges like to be quote unquote played. at the same time everything has to be put into perspective. this was not his personal money, it wasn't a personal fund. it wasn't money set aside so he could vacation, and buy a new home. it was money set aside for his legal defense. will he be afforded a new bond hearing? he will. and will he be able to explain it? i think he will be able to because his lawyers take the position, heather, that again this is money that he could not access on his oerpbg own,
independently. his lawyers could not access i. when he said he wa was indigent, he was in fact. heather: there also was a second passport he didn't mention. >> you have a risk of flight. if i'm the judge i say wait a second, you've given me one passport but not the other one. you lied to me about the passport, you lied to me about the funds that could be used for legal defense or maybe get out of the country, and that's the risk of flight and that's what the judge has to too look at here, is mr. stkeup zimmerman a risk of flight. >> the judge set aside 48 hours and said you be back in that timeframe. was he back? yes he was. the attorneys will point to that and say he's not race being of flight at all. as to the passport he indicated that he lost the other passport and as a result had to apply for a new one. it's certainly conceivable that he found the old one in the time that he got the new one and it was simply an oversight and i think that's what we'll look to
see explained when he goes to court. >> why not selfreport then, joey. >> i agree with that. i think there are credibility issues. i think he'll be able to explain them. the judge is concerned and upset about it. as a result we'll see an increase in the bail for sure but i think he will be afforded bail so he can come back and fight the case. >> one other very important thing, he is not being charged with shoplifting here, it's second-degree murder, a lot of people on second-degree murder charges aren't afforded any kind of release at all at any bond. >> that is a fair point and that's true. i think, however, since he was afford it to begin with we know that look, the judge took a risk on him and said we are going to give you bail. the issue won't be, it's second degree i can't give you bail. it will be i'm concerned, you made misrepresentations, i will give you bail but it will be higher. heather: there is a possibility of the stand your ground hearing. how will all of this affect that if that were to happen? >> these two points i don't think will have an effect on
