tv FOX and Friends FOX News June 8, 2012 3:00am-6:00am PDT
happy friday to you. >> this is something we talked about during the show. >> it's been an hour long. >> you didn't watch every minute of it? >> conductor. >> have a great show later. >> bye, see you later. thanks for joining us. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. >> tgif, everyone of the it's friday, june 8th. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks so much for sharing your time with us today. looks like it's bye-bye beltway for cory booker. he was once gunning for a spot on the president's cabinet potentially. this morning, they're saying he's dead to us, the mayor of newark. wow. >> talk about saying you're sorry. president clinton apologizing now for disagreeing with the president, current one on extending the former president george bush's tax cuts. >> i'm very sorry about what happened yesterday. it was what i thought something had to be done on the fiscal cliff before the election.
apparently nothing has to be done for the first of the year. >> then he disagrees with president obama again. what's up with bubba? >> and the incredible video you have to see. just how close this terrifying twister came to one high school graduation. way too close. "fox & friends" starts now. >> the stage is set. brian, you were just out there getting some brisket. >> yeah, all american summer concert series continues with one of our favorite all time guys, the most optimistic man to grab a microphone. andy grammar. >> he's had i great life story. he was playing on the streets a short time ago and wrote a song about that. next thing you know, it became really, really famous you've all
heard it before. >> we have a whole city block right here we'd like to fill up. if you're going to be in the midtown manhattan location, around 8:00 this morning, stop on by. we'll give you breakfast and a free show. >> even if you're going to school, forget school and come by. >> i don't know. you want to write some notes? we can write some notes. >> some kids are out of school already. >> college kids are out. >> right. >> if you're going to school, you're probably not going to go at 7:00 a.m. come here first. >> fox news alert to tell you about. overnight, jailbreak in northern afghanistan. authorities searching for more than a dozen prisoners including members of the taliban. an afghan official says the prisoners made a bomb and blew up a prison tower escaping through the rubble. guards opened fire killing three of them. a few others were recaptured but 14 prisoners remain on the run. >> homemade bomb thing is interesting. >> house lawmakers putting the fast & furious or the furious into fast & furious.
that frustration aimed at attorney general eric holder who side stepped many of their questions about the botched gunrunning program while testifying on capitol hill. house oversight committee chair darrell issa leading the charge accusing the attorney general of withholding information. >> have you and your attorneys produced internally the materials responsive to the subpoenas? >> we believe that we have responded to the subpoenas. >> mr. attorney general, you're not a good witness. the good witness answers the questions asked. let's go back again. have you and your attorneys produced -- >> holder also sticking to his claims that he and other stop justice department officials did not know the details of fast and furious until it was too late but house lawmakers say they have evidence proving otherwise. they're considering holding him in contempt of congress. new bombshell evidence in the etan patz case this morning. police have reportedly found an old toy and children's clothing from the 70's hidden in the new
jersey home of pedro hernandez. he's the man who claims he strangled 6-year-old patz in the basement of a new york city store in 1979. police say the toy and the clothing appear to be from that era. they'll now test it for d.n.a., if it's a match, it would be the first piece of physical evidence against hernandez. that's particularly important in this case since his history of mental illness raises questions about his confession thus far. scary moments for high school seniorss is what appeared to be a tornado rolled in during their graduation ceremony. the storm brought high winds and clouds that sent the graduates running out of their seats. many thought the dark cloud was a tornado. it turns out it was actually a wall of clouds. what's the difference? still looks scary. >> it does look scary. funny they're not running for their lives. let's talk a little bit about
this. remember on may 20th in the morning on "meet the press" cory booker who is the mayor of newark went on and essentially defended bain capital and what he said is you know what? these attacks on bain capital are nauseating and he said "if you look at the totality of bain capital's record, they've done a lot to support business." you know what? cory booker who is a democrat should have known that that is the last thing a democrat could say because that's essentially the president of the united states' campaign against mitt romney. >> duvall patrick said the same thing. steve ratner said the same thing a different way. but why cory booker according to this "new york post" exclusive story is suddenly dead to the white house, you know, in terms of ever working there is beyond me. i guess they know that he's an impact player in the democratic party. but he on "meet the press" said what he said. he's nauseated by the reverend wright attacks coming out on the other side. >> after he's apparently dead to
the white house, he still went out to seattle and campaigned for the president a couple of weekends ago so some of the story doesn't add up to me. maybe it's not such a bad thing to be dead to the white house. have you thought about that? if president obama does not win re-election, cory booker is a rising star in the democratic party. if he doesn't align himself eventually with the president and the president is not the president, cory booker has a great career in front of him. >> problem is, gretch, he was apparently planning on during a second term for barack obama, planning on being h.u.d. secretary and some talk about that. and he's looking down the road thinking oh, look, i'm going to be the h.u.d. secretary. not anymore. he's dead to us kind of in mob talk is the headline today in "the post." >> he went on the show on monday night and this aggravated the white house evidently. when asked by that host by the way, why did you back up your comments? did you get a call from the white house? yeah, i did. he was mad on sunday, the day he said it on may 20th that he took it to the nighttime to post the
clarification of the statements in the morning instead of doing it right away. i thought that was weird because i remember seeing it in the afternoon so i didn't think he waited too long. he was wearing the same outfit in his shirt sleeves just with the tie off. >> the you tube that he produced himself he didn't clear the white house. they were steamed with that. when he went out and said yeah, i talked to people at the white house yesterday, they weren't too happy with me. they infuriated them. here we are today. >> that's according to "the new york post." continue to debate that this morning. other people that have come out, high profile democrats like a former president, maybe the most popular former president on the democratic side, bill clinton. remember what he has said in the last couple of weeks, one day he seems to be for mitt romney and the next thing he clarifies that he's not. could it be now that there's sort of this pressure going on if you happened to go out and say something against the president, you're supposed to be on his team. could there be there's some sort of inner pressure making these
high profile people come back in, i don't understand why the former president of the united states bill clinton would be compelled to have to apologize. i don't get that. >> he was definitely contacted by the white house according to clinton official, saying white house officials contacted him after his cnbc interview at which time he said he would extend the bush tax cuts because of what's coming up in november. i find his apology relatively -- >> apology? not a clarification. an apology? >> you make the call. >> i'm very sorry about what happened yesterday. it's what i thought something had to be done on the fiscal cliff before the election. apparently nothing has to be done for the first of the year. he should stick with this position and noshlt with the republicans as soon as possible. i was under the impression that they would have to do something before the election and i was trying to figure out how they would make it last through the
election. once i realized something didn't need to be done until the first of the year, i support his position. i think his position is the right one and necessary if we're going to get a comprehensive deal. >> are we to believe that this master politician did not know that these bush tax cuts would sunset at the end of the year. that's his explanation? he still has not walked back the fact that he has said we're in the recession, that's not helpful to the president of the united states or that mr. romney's business resume at bain is sterling. he still hasn't walked that back. >> he did the other night on broadway because he said that electing mitt romney would be calamitous. >> he called his resume sterling. >> that was like 180 degrees from sterling to calamitous. charles krauthammer, you know him as a political columnist. i think he's also a psychiatrist, smart guy. so anyway, if he was going to
mentally analyze president clinton's string of comments recently, here's what he would say. >> in psychiatry, there's a term that you get a raving lunatic, psychotic who comes in the door and makes no sense. you say he's speaking in word salad. this is word salad with a vinaigrette on it. he's apparently trying to walk back this idea. he contradicted obama on extension of the bush tax cuts. he knows he did. he's not changing his position that i can understand. but he's basically saying i'm sorry. >> we should rename that keith ablow segment that we did, normal or nuts. normal or word salad? >> if he calls a sick day, we should see if krauthammer should come up. >> former pennsylvania governor ed rendell. remember he was a huge hillary supporter four years ago but then he, of course, endorsed barack obama. well, now, he seems to be back pushing for hillary clinton. he said that she would have had
much more experience if she had made it to the white house. >> i think she would have come in with a lot more executive experience. the president was for being a legislator only. for example, health care and stimulus, two bills that i think did good things for the american people. too much of it was left up to the concept. he said here's my concept and you flush it out. hillary clinton would have sent them a bill and said here's what i want. >> he's got a book out and he's commenting. he's a former d.n.c. chair, far from naive, democratic governor from a battleground state in pennsylvania. he knows his words have weight. who knows what hillary clinton would have done? she's done fine as the secretary of state. instead he embraced that question of how hillary would do instead of president obama. why isn't the white house going after him? >> "time" magazine reporting now with five months to go before the election, the grim reality is setting in with the white house. not only that mitt romney can win and there are a lot of republicans who realize, wait a
minute, we didn't think he could win. now a lot of the democrats realize barack obama can actually lose and if you look at some polls that came out yesterday, romney's leading in ohio and florida and michigan and currently tied in colorado. >> 12 minutes after the hour. let's get started with the show officially. is the white house leaking national security secrets to make the president look good? even top democrats want an investigation. >> this has to stop. when people say they don't want to work with the united states because they can't trust us to keep a secret, that's serious. >> that is serious and chairman of the house intelligence committee, former f.b.i. guy himself mike rogers here live next. >> and no joke, the f goes to whoever misspelled a word in this high school diploma. i can't see it in that fancy cursive. >> i can't either. [ male announcer ] what's in your energy drink?
i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.
>> this isn't good here. the dating web site e harmony, anybody on that? they just announced that 1.5 million profile passwords have been stolen. that's scary. can you imagine someone pretending to be the person you were pretending to be? >> 105 pounds. i like to laugh. >> and i love long walks on the beach. well, that's funny except for the fact that it's real. and getting your passwords to everything from e harmony to government agencies is way too easy. and our next guest warns their attacks will only get worse in the future. joining us right now to explain is "forbes'" london bureau chief and the author of the brand new book "we are anonymous, inside the hacker world of anonymous and the global cyber
insurgency." harmi olson, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> you hear about hackers and you think they're some kids in the basement somewhere trying to get in but they are much more sinister, aren't they? >> sinister but also with a sociopolitical bent now. 10 years ago, hacking was all about exploring new ways of testing your limitations and programming skills. now it's about getting a political message across. with anonymous, there's two different sides to the story. there are the people who go out there and want to disrupt the web and harass people for fun, post someone's naked pictures on facebook or blackmail them and there are the ones who are stealing passwords from government agencies and e-mails to try to make a sociopolitical point so when they've given themselves that justification, this kind of moral high ground, it can spin out of control. >> sure. for instance, you tell the story about how paypal was hacked into after they stopped processing payments from people who wanted to support wikileaks. >> uh-huh. and what's kind of interesting about anonymous is that it was just one person with a network
of zombie computers who was able to do that. but anonymous gave the impression that it was thousands of people who actually hit that web site and paralyzed it. so it creates this kind of mirage of scale and power. thanks to the internet like we heard about e harmony, you can project yourself as being more beautiful and bigger than you are. that's what it does successfully. >> we're talking about high profile people and people who others might want to slime via the internet. however, a lot of people need to know that hackers can try to get into their own personal information, might try to steal the money from their bank account and might try to do something with your credit cards. we've got some tips. one thing you suggest is use different passwords for multiple accounts. a lot of people use password or one, two, three, four for everything. >> you definitely don't want to do that. if someone gets one password for you, they can lock you out of facebook, anything. >> also when you're doing your passwords try to make them as long as possible. >> yes.
a good tip is to use a song lyric. maybe have one song and use a different lyric for each web account. >> change your passwords every how often? >> few months. >> really? and you should invest in some sort of internet protocol security. >> well, i mean, just generally speaking, small businesses, government agencies, anyone that's got a web site and is protecting client data needs to make sure they invest in protecting that date why as best as they can. hackers often go for the small businesses that have web sites because those are the easiest to get into. what anonymous speaks to is how easy it is to hack now. hack is a broad word because there are free web tools that you can down load that will automatically hack a web site for you. >> have you been hacked? >> i haven't been but that's because i rotate my passwords all the time. >> her new book is called "we are anonymous." check it out. it is fascinating. >> thank you very much for joining us. >> straight ahead, next year, the government wants to spend
$40 billion fixing roads and bridges and $80 billion on food stamps. details on the dramatic increase that nobody is talking about right now coming up. and congressman mike rogers used to work for the f.b.i. now he wants to investigate the white house and he's not alone. both sides say there's a dangerous leak and america needs to find out who is doing the leaking. puppies need food made . puppies need food made . that's why there's purina puppy chow. with all the essential nutrients ur growing puppy needs. purina puppy chow. begins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. our cloud is made of bedrock. concrete. and steel.
>> got some quick friday morning headlines for you. russia test firing a new missile. the rocket was fired from a military base. russia officials saying it hit its intended target in kazakhstan. the country apparently hoping it can counter the u.s. missile defense system. oh, really? and food stamp spending is up 100% since barack obama took
office. republican senator jeff sessions says the majority of spending in a senate farm bill plus $100 billion a year is going to food stamps. it's estimated $38 billion was spent on food stamps back in 2010. gretch, brian? >> thank you, steve. is the white house leaking national security secrets to make the president look good on foreign policy before the election? even top democrats now wanting to investigate. >> this has to stop. when people say they don't want to work with the united states because they can't trust us to keep a secret, that's serious. >> all right. so what happens now? joining us now is former f.b.i. agent and chairman of the house intelligence committee, republican congressman mike rogers of michigan. congressman, where are you going from here? >> well, i've initiated a preliminary review. it was originally on the yemen bombing case in the very serious and damaging leaks that came out of that case at what appears to be a senior level across the
executive branch. and what we found pretty quickly is there was a pattern of these types of leaks that were very dangerous. and, of course, there's, you know, certainly without -- some of the stuff in the articles is wrong. some of it is right. but it's been very damaging to our liaison partners. to the people we work with. they raise questions about our ability to keep secrets. and the individuals that we ask to go out in some very dangerous circumstances and risk their life to get information that keeps us safe. so what i've come to the conclusion, this needs to be a full, fair and complete investigation wherever it takes us. >> so americans watching us right now are saying wow, this is a rare show of bipartisan fire against this administration. i mean, this is something that both sides of the aisle are coming together on. is there anything criminal that's going on here? >> oh, this is very criminal. the leaks that we have seen and again, in a pattern of leaks and
some on different areas and the yemeni bomber is one example i gave you but there are other levels that rise to the level of criminality. someone committed a crime against their country and their neighbors and the great people of the united states and that's why this is so serious and that's why you see both republicans and democrats coming out in shock. this is very dangerous to our national security. >> three major stories in the last 45 days. senator lindsay graham says he believes it came from the white house and the proof is where's the white house outrage on these leaks? if they are -- they're hurt by this, too, unless, of course, it came from them and we know in one article, it says three dozen present and former white house security officials cooperated with the story. >> yeah. that's certainly very, very troubling and that's why i'd been saying, you know, we tried -- we should do this in a nonpartisan way so senator feinstein and i have been working together on this knowing how serious it is so we should
be able to follow the investigation where it goes and that's why i'm wondering, can the attorney general investigate the -- the attorney general's office, as a matter of fact, some of their division had to actually be recused and that's not saying they're guilty. it's because they were so close to the operational detail. then you have the nse involved, f.b.i. involved, maybe there's a better time to find a complete and fair investigation of where these leaks came from and find that individual and charge them for a crime. and obviously, the president's spokesperson continually being asked this question. here's jay carney's response as of yesterday. no, as i said, the president takes this very seriously. i refer you to agencies that are taxed with investigating these kinds of matters. and again, this is something that the president insists that his administration take all appropriate and necessary steps to prevent leaks of classified information or sensitive information that could risk our counterterrorism operations. >> compare this to valerie
plane. there's much more here. these are three specific stories that could compromise future operations. as far as we know, valerie plane didn't compromise any future operations but her own security. >> valerie was bad enough, somebody went to jail for that. this isn't just future operations but current operations that jeopardize the way that people are doing business today. it put people's lives at risk today. as a matter of fact in the yemeni case, jeopardized real lives of real people who were trying to help the united states of america. their lives were in jeopardy. and so this -- that's why this is so serious. >> we got to let you go but is the white house putting pressure on any of the lawmakers right now with regard to this case? >> well, i certainly hope not. and i think the comments that we know what it isn't as much as they say we know what it is, it has a political paint to it so i would caution even those who are saying we know for a fact it
didn't come from a, b or c, that tells us we have to be cautious. that's why this should be fair, impartial and complete. >> congressman mike rogers, thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. good to see you, brian, gretchen. >> thank you. so let's get this straight. we're trillions in debt. we got to get out of the calculator for this but millions of your tax money has been forgotten about. sitting in a bank somewhere. coming up next. >> the f goes to whoever misspelled a word on a high school diploma. there you go. >> now i see it. maybe they're talking about legs. happy birthday to julianna margalis. the actress is 46 today. looks great. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lower cholesterol as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true.

vote for mitt romney! >> and after they've spent so much money on commercials, the obama campaign, they are currently absolutely tied, according to a brand new fox poll, we'll give you all the details on it coming up in about a minute. >> he was outraged, is that the right term, by mitt romney? last month, in may. >> yeah, we were beat. that's what the obama team sent out yesterday. outraised cash wise. >> well, let's go out to some news at the bottom half of the hour here. they're trading jabs on the economy as numbers show, mitt romney outraised president obama. peter doocy live in washington this morning. hey, peter. >> hey, gretchen. mitt romney said in st. louis yesterday that the bad economy and the high rates of unemployment and poverty in america right now don't just represent a policy failure by the current administration. romney says they represent a moral failure of tragic proportions. > >> i don't believe by the way it was done by evil intent or
bad will but for a family that's forced to spend their kids' college savings to make ends meet, the results are just the same and just as devastating. >> but on a thursday campaign stop in las vegas, president obama ignored mitt romney and set his sights on congress instead. and the president basically said that congress should have passed his jobs bill and raised taxes by september but because they didn't, the economy continues to be in bad shape. >> some of these folks in congress, they were saying we're just talking about student loans to distract from the economy. i guess they don't get this is the economy. helping you get the skills that businesses were looking for, that's one of the best things we can do for the economy. >> and with all the talk about dollars and cents on the campaign trail. it is worth pointing out that mitt romney raised more in may than president obama did. romney and the r.n.c. raked in
$78.6 million. that's almost $17 million more in may than president obama and the d.n.c.'s $60 million. back to you in new york. >> all right, peter, thank you very much. according to this brand new fox news poll, they're tied at 43. they -- they asked people about which of the two candidates for president do you think is doing a better job, about stuff, we've got some full screens we'll show you. who do you trust to do a better job regarding taxes? take a look. people trust romney better. when it comes to the economy, romney better. job creation, romney. immigration, romney. >> immigration is fascinating because i could see that in the republican side but not in the general, so that's interesting. >> and look at government spending. they trust romney by 20 points over barack obama to do a better job. >> what about education? that's the hot topic right now. they trust president obama. 52% to mitt romney's 34%. and here's another big one. foreign policy, they trust president obama 49% to mitt romney's 38%. >> those leaks are paying off.
>> maybe so. >> terrorism, 47% to president obama with mitt romney only at 34%. bringing the u.s. together, i find that fascinating. they still pick president obama even though there's been a lot of discussion about dividing the nation especially in the last year under this administration. >> if the election was held today, 43-43, we'd be tied. >> now to your headlines. >> the violence against civilians in syria with showing no signs of letting up. look. >> the latest report, the latest reported mass killing involving about 80 people. many of the victims are women and children. we've learned observers for the united nations actually coming under fire as they tried to reach the site. the u.s. condemning syria's president assad saying he has "doubled down on his brutality and duplicity" and secretary of state hillary clinton has called for him to leave. and we have an envoy heading up to moscow to try to convince
him. >> hurry. shocking new claims about your taxpayer money. it turns out $70 billion of your money sitting in federal bank accounts and not being used for anything. senator from oklahoma, tom coburn revealing the details in a brand new report on government waste. he says we should not count on getting that money back any time soon. >> $70 billion of which have a tough time getting it back. no effort is being made to get it back. and yet, it's already money that we're paying interest on. that's what we can find, you know, that's what my office -- i don't have the access that the appropria appropriaters have to all these accounts. if i did, i bet i could find more. >> senator coburn said the unspent funds have been collecting for years now. he blames poorly drafted laws, bureaucratic obstacles and plain old mismanagement. in other words, he blames washington. >> whole lot of caps and frowns for students graduating high school in maryland's prince

would the lady please -- >> parliamentary inquiry. >> ok, the committee says it has documents that contradict the attorney general's claim that senior officials of the justice department knew nothing about the gun handling scandal. you might have to put on more hats than your judge one. like a -- >> they need a sergeant-at-arms there. >> that, too. what's going on? >> ok, we don't know exactly what congressman issa has. but we believe that he has affidavits that were submitted to federal judges in california, arizona and new mexico for search warrants and in the affidavits that went to the judges, the existence of fast & furious was revealed. so far, no problem. but in order to get this affidavit filed, it has to be approved by a high ranking justice official in washington, d.c. so if it was approved by a high ranking justice official in washington, d.c. before they were filed, then we know that
the justice department knew about this earlier than the attorney general has stated a half dozen times under oath that he knew about it. >> no, but here's -- >> did he know? did the person below him know? and if they didn't know, didn't they have the duty to know? did they just approve these documents without reading them? >> here's the complicated part. apparently those affidavits have been given to darrell issa, the congressman investigating this illegally, they were stolen? >> yes, i hesitate to use the word stolen but we know for sure that it was an unlawful act. look, when you're a whistle blower, you can be a goat or a hero, you know, this person that gave -- these people that gave these documents to congressman issa, they're helping us get to the truth. on the other hand, they did violate federal law which keeps secret these affidavits unless and until someone's charged and information obtained from the search warrant is going to be used to prosecute that person. >> how does that affect what's
going on right now if those documents were oblted illegal snl>> two ways it will affect. if someone is going to be prosecuted as a result of fast & furious that we know ended in the murder of a federal agent, then information obtained from the search warrants cannot be used in prosecution. down the road in the executive branch insisting it didn't know something that we probably knew, this turns up the heat on attorney general holder and when and if those documents are revealed, congressman issa and his colleagues can basically say, wait a minute, you guys authorized this application for this wiretap and you didn't read it? >> so during these hearings, nobody like the department of justice can issue some sort of an order to stop those documents from becoming public because they were obtained illegally? >> that's a superb question. and that would require that the department of justice go to a federal judge to keep documents
secret because if they are revealed, it would embarrass the department of justice. bottom line, the heat is hotter on attorney general holder, the situation is less stable as the chief law enforcement officer of the land. and we're 5 1/2 months to the presidential election. >> wow. some huge stories going on today. judge andrew napolitano, great to get your analysis. have a great weekend. >> thank you, you, too, gretchen elizabeth. >> he's revealing secrets about -- ok, that's my middle name! teachers won't attend graduation because they are on strike fighting for more benefits. but they have the best salaries and benefits in their state! a student with how it's affecting him next. plus bye-bye beltway for mayor cory booker of newark. he was once gunning a spot on the president's cabinet, now they're saying he's dead to us. as i get older, i'm making changes to support my metabolism.

>> all right. you ready for some more troubled schools? over 600 teachers in pennsylvania hit the picket lines monday for the second time this year alone after negotiations broke down again between the teachers union and the school board. the educators whose salaries average over $84,000 a year say they want higher pay and better benefits, but some parents and students say what they're asking for is way too much. the money is just not there. ed mcconnell is one of the students being impacted by these protests and he's a senior and he's in the middle of this. how are you handling this, ed? because this is the second time
and it's jeopardizing when your school year ends. >> i'm handling it. it's been kind of difficult but it's also weird. because my teacher is supposed to be there to help us get through all this and they're standing back and they're just not doing what they're supposed to be doing like going to our graduation and our senior picnic. >> so the details of this, this is the second time they're doing it this year, one of the quotes from a teacher from langhorne says that her salary is $30,000 less than the average salary. their school has better grades than this school, than the school you go to and essentially siding with the students and with the board on this, where do you stand as a senior? >> as a senior, it's --
>> is it upsetting? >> yes, i would say it's definitely upsetting. because these teachers, i've been in the school for four years. i know many of the teachers very well. i like to consider some of them as my friends. and the fact that they won't even do stuff for us that they should be doing like pointing out letters of recommendation, they won't do it. >> and that's incredible. let's take a look at what the teachers are earning now and what they want. here's what they want. the district is offering -- the average teacher compensation is $89,000. no contribution to health insurance for themselves or their family. they receive longevity bonuses, reimbursement to unused sick days and 27,500 cash bonuses and full health coverage upon retirement. and they want more. correct? >> yeah. >> so for you, if they don't go back to school, the state says if they don't come back soon and it looks like an injunction is the only thing that will get the teachers off the picket line unless a deal is struck you
could be going to school in july. >> fortunately, me being a senior i'm graduating next week but all the underclassmen, yes, they'll be stuck in school. it's not fair! >> describe -- and lastly, ed, describe the scene. i understand one side of the block are the teachers, hundreds, and the other side are parents and students against them. is that correct? >> yes. the teachers just don't understand that the parents have no more money to give them. >> you're taxed high enough. ed mcconnell, good luck with what you're doing next year. glad you're going to get out and get out of the chaos and hopefully they'll get a resolution here. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> thanks for joining us. meanwhile, straight ahead, the green police are out. if you don't recycle, get ready to hand over $2500. caught in the act. misconduct by a conductor. plus reading a newspaper while driving a packed, speeding train. great!

guards opened fire killing three of them. a few others were recaptured but 14 prisoners remain on the run. new bombshell evidence in the etan patz case this morning. police have reportedly found an old toy and children's clothing hidden in the new jersey home of pedro martinez. you may recall after so many years, he's the man who claims now that he strangled 6-year-old patz in the basement of a new york city store back in 1979. police say the toy and clothing appear to be from that era. they're now going to test it for d.n.a. if it's a match, it would be the first piece of physical evidence against hernandez and that's particularly important in this case. why? because hernandez suffers from a history of mental illness and it's raising a lot of questions about the confession that he's given to police. now to an extreme weather alert out of wyoming. a rare tornado destroying more than as to homes and leaving at least one person injured. the twister reportedly a quarter mile wide with hail the size of golf balls. fortunately, it did not hit the state's more heavily populated areas. meantime, more severe weather in
new jersey, too. >> what appeared to be a tornado sent high school seniors running out of their seats in the graduation ceremony. it turns out that dark cloud was actually a wall cloud. it still looks threatening. hopefully they were all ok. >> just not spinning. >> ok. >> "the new york post" may be hard to put down. but this is one place really should wait a bit to read it. yep. a metro north engineer busted reading the newspaper as he drives the train through new york's grand central station. the engineer not even taking his eyes off as he reaches for the controls. an angry passenger taking the video. we hear the engineer, john cooper has been caught on video texting. he's now suspended without pay. there's been no comment from him. and those are your headlines. >> what a fantastic advertisement for the paper. it's so enthralling and so engrossing, you got to do it!
>> what paper is that? >> i think "the new york post," the one right there. >> but i was actually thinking about the safety of the passengers. >> oh, yeah. that, too. >> that's important. >> that, too. speaking of the "new york post," we have a headline. he's dead to us! that's according to "the post". they're saying that about that man right there, cory booker, the current mayor of newark, new jersey, rising star in the democratic party. on may 20th, he went on "meet the press" and said he was ne espnenews -- nauseated about the attacks on bain capital. he thought he had a chance to be h.u.d. secretary. the white house says he's dead to us. >> that's according to the newspaper. there are a couple of things that don't add up to me. he's been out campaigning. did a west coast trip for him. i don't know. but cory booker is a smart guy and well liked by a lot of people. he's a successful mayor in
newark, new jersey and whether or not, you know, he becomes h.u.d. secretary, i don't think that defines where his career is going later on and by the way, president obama may not win a second term so it might not matter. >> evidently, the report said he's never been tight with president obama. they don't like the way they handled after making those statements, don't like the fact that it took him forever to post the you tube apology walking back that original statement. how do you walk back a statement when you said so definitively and when he went on a tv show the next night when he was asked, were you pressured by the white house to come out within apology. he said yes. why are you saying that? steve ratner, ed rendell and the president of the united states -- the former president of the united states have all said similar things about the attacks on bain capital. why is cory booker forced to pay the price? >> sure, you're talking about bill clinton. remember not too long ago, he said that mitt romney's business credentials were sterling when he was at bain capital. he said that would qualify him to be president of the united states and then most recently, he went on cnbc and he said we're in a recession and also
they should figure a way to temporarily extend the bush era tax cuts for everybody. >> for everybody. >> for a while until we get back on our feet. then he came out and clarified it and yesterday, extraordinarily, he came out and apologized for it. watch this. >> i'm very sorry about what happened yesterday. i thought something had to be done on the fiscal cliff before the election. apparently nothing has to be done as the first of the year. he should stick with his negotiation and negotiate with the republicans. i was under the impression they would have to do something before the election and i was trying to figure out how they would kick it until the election. once i realized that nothing had to be done until the first of the year, i supported -- i support his position. i supported him extending it last year but i think his position is the right one and necessary if we're going to get a comprehensive deal. >> i have a couple of questions about this other than huh?
which is the first one. why does bill clinton keep doing interviews. why does president clinton keep doing interviews if he has to keep walking back what he says in the initial ones? usually if you've made a mistake, you go off in the distance for a while and not appear on television. the third question is why does the former president of the united states who is arguably more popular than president obama have to apologize anyway? >> yeah, especially because he's such a key surrogate for the president. he doesn't have many key surrogates. the vice president tends to get him in a little bit of trouble while he does positive things with his constituency. i wonder what the heck he means? i can't understand what he said. he'd have to understand, as gretchen mentioned, the legislature calendar. does he not know what sequester is, does he not know when the budget goes up? that was his explanation. so charles krauthammer is so much smarter than me. he must be able to undo and unwind the president's words.
there's a term, if you get a raving lunatic, excuse me, sigh cot -- psychotic who comes and makes no sense. he's speaking in word salad. this is word salad with vinaigrette on top. he's trying to walk back this idea. he contradicted obama on the extension of the bush tax cuts. he knows he did. he's not changing his position that i can understand but basically saying i'm sorry. >> he went on to say he's doing it with a wink and a nod. and he is saying i'm under duress like a hostage the way he goes to describe it. >> did charles krauthammer just call the former president of the yeas psychotic? >> or a raving lunatic. >> he fixed it. speaking of raving, there was some raving and raging yesterday if you were watching the house judiciary committee. they called up the current attorney general, that man right there, eric holder and they said hey, where are all the papers we asked you for and essentially
said we've given you all that we're going to give you. he revealed that the department of justice has 140,000 documents relating to fast & furious but only produced 7600. that could be a problem. now the republicans on the committee are talking about contempt of congress at the attorney general of the united states. >> this has been brewing for sometime. we've been talking about this possible contempt charge for a while. could it have a negative effect on the current speaker of the house, republican john boehner if he doesn't move forward with some republicans' demands to do that? to hold the attorney general in contempt? here's one congressman that believes the pressure is on john boehner. >> i can't imagine our leadership not willing to go forward. obviously, if that was to happen to apply the same standard that we have to the attorney general, we need new leadership. >> at that same press conference
yesterday, congressman canseco, a republican of texas said "i personally believe that the attorney general eric holder has deliberately misled the congress and is unfit for office." >> well, one thing was abundantly clear, darrell issa who has been immersed in this over a year and maybe two has had it. had it with the run around. had it with the blocks. he's had it with the funny answers he's getting back. and he went back and forth with attorney general holder who did a very good job keeping his cool. i think darrell issa wanted to make a point. i've had it. you won't be able to block me forever. it was interesting, another congressman came forward, dowdy and said i keep hearing reports that you think this is political or you think this is racial. it's not about race. it's not about politics. it's about the answer. here's issa last night. >> i believe that the speaker is close to the end of his rope.
i'm comfortable that he will make the decision relatively soon. >> he was talking about the pressure on john boehner to make this decision about whether or not you will hold the attorney general of the united states in contempt of congress. darrell issa believes there's going to be some sort of resolution to all of this by july 4th which, of course, is right around the corner. >> attorney general trying to deny that any high ranking department of justice officials had anything to do with fast & furious. >> karma coming around real quick for this guy. get a quick look. quick thinking customer doing his best bruce lee on an armed robber. >> no longer running for president but about to have a big impact on the race for white house. rick santorum is live next with a big announcement exclusively here on "fox & friends." good morning to you. summer road trip, huh?

>> 16 minutes after the top of the hour. well, rick santorum, as you know, dropped out of the presidential race. but he hasn't given up on his fight for this year's election. today, the former senator and presidential candidate formerly making an exclusive announcement on his plans for the future and he's doing it right here. >> that's right. joining us from chicago where he's appearing at c pac chicago, we have rick santorum. good morning to you, senator. >> good morning, mr. doocy. how are you? >> doing great. thank you very much. it's embargoed news until right now. what are you doing now? >> well, one of the things we found as i traveled around the country is that people came up to me a lot and said that you were -- i was out there speaking about things that gave voice to their concerns. and a lot of issues that, you know, people are concerned
obviously about the economy. people are concerned about national security but i think a lot of people have basic anxiety about where america is going and i tried to talk about those in the campaign. the adherence to the constitution and the importance of understanding where our rights come from and who we are as a people and the culture and how that is being changed by this administration, whether it's religious liberty or life or marriage and, of course, you know, we talked a lot about the manufacturing base and people left behind by both parties. democrats who want to make folks more dependent and republicans who don't seem to be talking about the 70% of americans who don't go to college and so we wanted to put an organization together that reflected those voices across america. and we're calling it "patriot voices" you can go to patriotvoices.com and sign up. and we're going to be talking about those issues in this -- not just in this campaign but going forward and we're going to be holding candidates accountable and getting involved with candidates, supporting them and, of course, supporting mitt romney and making sure that mitt
is the next president of the united states. and that we get rid of the scourge that has been the bane of the economy and our country which is barack obama and his administration. >> let's talk about governor mitt romney, a man who you came runner-up to in the nomination. i know in a late night misssive, you said he's your guy. are you going to have a more formal announcement? i hear the meeting between you guys did not go as well. that's why the announcement was late at night in an e-mail. >> no. the announcement was late at night in an e-mail because i was sending an e-mail to our -- we had about 300,000 e-mail folks that we communicate with and we wanted it to be in their mailbox first in the thing so it didn't get buried in the middle of the day and we laid it out very clearly as to why i was supporting governor romney. the meeting went exceptionally well. i don't know -- i didn't see any reports saying it didn't go well. we had a great discussion about
exactly the issues we're going to be talking about with patr t patriotvoices.com. ist the issues that are going to connect that sees both parties talking past each other and not getting back to the basic principles to unify america going forward. >> let's talk about another hot topic right now on capitol hill. that is whether or not special national security secrets sealed were let loose by somebody in the white house, leaked to the newspapers to try to make president obama's foreign policy look better right before the election. apparently now, the white house is rejecting a special counsel needed to investigate those leaks. jay carney, the president's spokesperson is saying no to that. what do you make of that? >> well, you know, i think the congress has a responsibility here. i just was listening to the -- to the -- the issue before i came on which was the eric holder issue and what you see is
congress doing what congress needs to do which is hold the executive branch accountable. we have a special prosecutor, i'm frankly not surprised about that. but this is where congress has to step up and do its job and do the oversight that's necessary and they clearly have to do it with eric holder. >> joining us today from chicago to announce his new program called patriot voices, senator santorum, thank you very much. have a great weekend at c-pac. >> thank you. >> coming up straight ahead, she's on a crusade to fix our nation's troubled schools. how one woman overcame adversity, quit her job and risked her entire life savings to re-create urban education. >> he made history, the first governor ever to face a recall and win. big news, right? wrong. what was the mainstream media covering instead? the woman on the right. miley cyrus. and her engamingment. ♪

interests than mitt romney. >> i'm stunned by bringing the u.s. together. >> i don't know what that means. >> because the whole campaign of president obama four years ago was hope and change and bringing everybody together and a lot of people were looking forward to that. but a lot of people also believe that that hasn't been what's happened in the last 3 1/2 years. so i'm stunned that he's still on top with that percentage in that category. >> the other poll, extensive poll and go to fox news.com but if the election is held today, it's tied at 43-43. in may, it was 46-39 for barack obama. in april, it was tied. so now, things -- president obama by any account has had a very tough two weeks. the walker situation is really dividing the party to a degree. i saw paul last night saying the president should have went down and tried in wisconsin. i should say. so i think that there's a situation where they really have to regroup and also a study shows that the american people do not think bain capital is a bad thing! they think venture capital is a positive thing. >> you may be right because
barack obama, president obama said he was not -- that was not a distraction. he was going to continue to talk about it. brian said he sensed that he was going to move on to talk about his massachusetts record in mitt romney and it appears that you may be correct. >> but we have another secret bet that we can't disclose that i know i'm going to be right on. >> uh-oh. >> ok, i might be buying dinner and wine. >> next, president obama had pledged to shut down gitmo. remember that? but instead, gitmo is getting millions of dollars in upgrades. terrorists need cable tv, right? >> awesome story to tell. andy grammar, street performer not too long ago. now he's climbing the pop charts and he's on our stage. >> first the picnic table.

the nfl covered up ties between sports-related injuries and brain damage. joining us right now is former running back for the new england patriots and philadelphia eagles and by the way, he's a plaintiff for the nfl lawsuit, kevin turner. kevin, welcome to the show! >> hey, good morning. >> kevin, i understand that you've also been diagnosed with a.l.s. back in may of 2010. do you think it's related to football? >> yeah -- yes, i do. i think it has something to do with it. i don't think it's the only reason but from what i've seen and what i've learned over the last couple of years, yeah. >> so people at home saying wow, we watch these guys hit at each other at 100 miles an hour. they didn't know they could potentially be doing damage to their brain. what are you alleging the league didn't tell you? >> well, i think -- it wasn't a -- i mean, you got treatment on your knees, there's -- it just
-- you weren't made aware of the seriousness -- i'm sorry, seriousness of the head injuries or brain injuries. you get a concussion and as soon as you're able to, you know, follow the top of the pen of a doctor, you know, you go back in the game and , you know, and quite possibly get one or two more. and that is not safe. that i've learned over the past couple of years. yeah, i used to be one of those just went around, you know, hitting everything. and it's -- you know, i feel somewhat like, you know, what was i thinking? but, you know, it just wasn't a topic that was ever brought up, you know. you feel like you got the helmet on, you're fine! >> do you think that if someone came up to you and said listen, you can't go back in.
stop your career now. you've had too many concussions, would you have listened? >> yeah. i mean, if -- if someone came to me that had done research and said, you know, this is going to really affect your way of life after football and i mean, cut your life short, absolutely. >> so kevin, you have a son. i'm sure if he wants to be like his dad and play football, would you green light him? would he be allowed to play? >> well, for example, i did not let either of my boys play ball last year. this year, i will let my oldest play high school ball but i'm doing that with a lot more knowledge than i had when i was playing. >> kevin, best of luck. i know you you -- got some
challenges straight ahead and thanks so much for sharing your story. >> thank you, brian. >> let's go outside. steve, you're with a very upbeat singer. >> i am indeed. it's part of the summer concert series here on "fox & friends." he started off playing in the streets of california and now this up and coming artist has reached the top five adult pop radio. congratulations. his first single "keep your head up" is a certified gold record and a top 20 hit. ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for andy grammar! >> good morning, everybody! what's up? >> got quite a crowd here in the front. >> man, this is true fandom right here. i love you so much. thanks for coming. >> explain this. the first 300 people close to the stage here are all girls. >> i'll have to tell you about that. that's so sweet. i love you. thanks. >> it's fantastic. now, you were with "fox &
friends" back in february and we told a little bit about your personal story. it wasn't that long ago, you were on the streets of santa monica, california, you had your amp hooked up to a car battery and you just played in front of the mcdonald's for tip money. >> go for it. sell c.d.'s and it was a lot of fun. >> and one of the guys that really inspired you and i love this story is a man named grammer and we're not talking about kelsey grammer, we're talking about red grammer, your dad. >> my dad is the best, best children's singer in the world. yeah. >> i understand at a lot of his concerts he would say ladies and gentlemen, here's my little boy andy. and andy would come up to the stage and what would you do? >> i had a couple of lines that i would sing in his act and then after the show, we'd have a talk and i'd be like, i'm going to need to be a bigger part of your act. that wasn't enough. i need more. >> would you remember the lines that you would do in your dad's show? >> fish to catch! that's my line.
it would be like fish to catch! everybody! >> fish to catch. all right. follow him. now, your hit from last year, "keep your head up", are you surprised at how that really took off? because it's inspirational to a lot of people. it's got a happy beat. easy to dance to. but that thing has taken off like crazy. >> yeah. you can never expect something to go as big as "keep your head up" i'm so lucky and blessed to have something that went that big. it's awesome. >> what's the difference between you and the andy grammer of today and of a year ago? >> i'm on the street but it's with "fox & friends." >> that's right. >> that's the difference. >> with "fox & friends" is the difference. >> yeah, when is the last time you did a concert at breakfast time where they were serving barbecue as famous dave's is doing today? >> the best thing that's ever happened ever is that we're hanging out with some barbecue. i mean, my whole band, we're about go to throw down some barbecue when this is done.
>> yeah. >> not only we're going to have some famous dave's barbecue but you'll do your new single. >> what's it called? >> it's called "fine by me." and apparently fine by them as well. >> yeah. >> andy grammer will be performing his new hit single very shortly right here. >> ladies and gentlemen, round of applause for andy! all right. back to you. >> the girls are there for you and you know it. thanks for andy feeling better, though. straight ahead on this show, she's on a crusade to fix this nation's troubled schools. how one woman risked her entire life savings to re-create urban education. you think the potholes in your neighborhood are bad? take a look at this. a van swallowed up by the street. first, the trivia question of the day -- all multivitamins give me the basics.

low point. i didn't care about anything. and that difficult time, the only thing that helped me was the idea of helping other people and a lot of people have written to me who have read the book and said, you know, what spoke to them is not the story of education particularly but the idea of people out there who are going through a hard time in their own life or have had something difficult happen to them, they see the possibility that if you help other people and find your own calling, it actually lifts you up. >> ok, so that's what you wanted to do in 2001 and congratulations, because everything you dreamed of, you are accomplishing and, you know, there are so few great stories in education right now, your story is fantastic. those schools in that area at the time were underperforming. today, the harlem village academy is ranked number one in all of harlem in 2010 for eighth grade math, reading. they scored 100% in proficiency in eighth grade math for four years in a row. 97% or more students passed all
the regents required for graduation. what are you doing at your schools that public schools aren't doing? >> it's all about teachers. and what i mean is we were obsessed 10 years ago with one question -- how do you make teachers happy and great? how do you attract the best teachers and then bring out the best in them? and so we weren't worried about the particulars, class size, school size, curriculum. it was all about the teachers and what we did was give them an enormous amount of freedom and trust and respect and support and make it fun and nurture them and do everything they need. give them what they need. and the teachers then, they love having that freedom and trust, they then are passionate and on fire and excited in the classroom and by the way, if a teacher doesn't perform, we can hold them accountable so it's like a tradeoff. accountability for freedom and that's the essence of charter schools. >> and that's the problem with our current public system where because of tenure and unions and
stuff like that, the teacher -- and i love teachers. but there are some bad apples in there that you can't get rid of it and are not motivating our children. >> that's right. what's interesting is a lot of people think that the education reform debate is about what's best for kids vs. what's best for teachers. that's a false dichotomy. the reality is holding teachers accountable is actually beneficial to the vast majority of teachers because then they get to work with other energized colleagues. >> fantastic. and i understand george bush when he was president of the united states took note what you were doing. >> yeah. yeah. the president visited the school. it was an exciting day for the kids. it was, most of all, to me, i was excited because it was honoring our teachers. >> no kidding. i hope a lot of other school districts take a look at what you're doing at the harlem village academies. her new book once again if you want to read all about it "born to rise." deborah kenny, thank you very much and good luck. congratulations. >> thank you. >> that's fantastic.
meanwhile, 11 minutes before the top of the hour. just call it planned parenthood 101. the organization setting up shop inside a high school. planned parenthood is and offering free birth control and counseling as well. but wait, isn't that a parent's job? we'll have a fair and balanced debate about those bills coming up. but first on this date back in 1986, kim wild had the number one song with "you keep me hanging on". wake up! that's good morning, veggie style. hmmm. fohalf the calories plus vgie nutrition. could've had a v8. when i had my heart event. and i've been on a bayer aspirin regimen ever since. [ male announcer ] be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. i know if i take my bayer aspirin
school property. the plan is to provide free birth control, counseling and even pregnancy tests to low income students so this morning, we're asking is that a good idea? joining me for a fair and balanced debate, astrid bennett guiterrez, the director of los angeles pregnancy services and a syndicated radio talk show host. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> i'm going to give you both a chance to explain your point of view. astrid, good idea or not? >> bad idea, gretchen. planned parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the country. parents need to know that their children are being given contraceptives the way they're being given candy in the schools and in reality, planned parenthood, this is one more way they're enjoying support from obama and if we have obamacare passed, we can see this in more high schools and the reality is that this is basically normalizing very risky behavior not only for pregnancy but also for s.t.d.'s and these kids are
going to end up with abortions. >> all right. i have to get leslie jumping in here. why do you think it's a good idea? >> you know, gretchen, i'm a parent of two kids. and i couldn't have thought of my daughter, quite frankly, having sex at a young age like most parents. but the reality is that this specific high school, there's a disproportionate amount of teen pregnancies. now, contraception in the past with the hospital that this school was formally partnered with. that deal went away and had to reach out to somebody. they found not only in this hospital but certain pockets of los angeles that these kids were getting pregnant right around prom which is this time of year. so what they're doing is trying to find a way to reduce teen pregnancies that reduces abortion and keeps these teens in school and allows them to have, perhaps, a better life in the future and on the top of it, it helps costs not only on the state level but national level because they're not going to be signing up for food stamps, etc. >> does she have a good point with what she just said? >> i think that the
contraceptives are not a good idea. according to alan gutmacher institute, planned parenthood's research wing, over 50% of the women who come in for abortions were using some sort of birth control method that failed. these girls are basically headed for an abortion and the worst thing that can happen to a woman is not a pregnancy but an abortion. our community, the latino community is pro life. our parents deserve to know and our kids deserve a much better option than contraceptives and abortions. contraceptives have been proven to be carcinogenic and abortions are devastating for women emotionally and physically and we must give them a better option. the best option for students is a good message that really does open up all the options for their future and really does prevent single parenthood. >> i have to get the planned parenthood quote here in from sue dunlap. we don't experience the traditional narrative of angry parents not wanting access to reproductive care in the schools. it's really the opposite. leslie, she's talking about that
particular school which you pointed out had a higher teen pregnancy rate. apparently, according to planned parenthood there, the parents in this case maybe want this program. your response? >> well, first, even to astrid's point, one of the reasons the contraceptives don't work is they're not being taught how to use them properly and astrid knows in the latino community, they have even by their parents extremely high pregnancy rates over the other communities in the united states. the problem here is that the parents aren't teaching these kids. they are saying abstain. that obviously hasn't worked at roosevelt high school when we see the numbers. these girls are saying i want birth control and i don't feel comfortable going outside of the community. what we're saying in los angeles is we'll bring it to you in order to help you to have the contraceptives and the parents are for it because they're not as educated and informed on the contraceptives and the proper use. >> good debate there. you didn't talk over each other and we got a lot of information out. have a great weekend. thank you. >> thank you, gretchen. >> thank you. >> all right, coming up on "fox & friends", geraldo is here to talk white house leaks. but first, you have to get past

case. police found a toy in the home of pedro hernandez. the items appear to be from that era. they'll now test them for dna. if it's a match, it would be the first piece of physical evidence against hernandez. that's particularly important in this case since his history of mental illness raises concern about his confession. a military judge set to rule against whether charges against bradley manning will be dropped. his attorneys asking for ten of the 22 charges be dismissed. the 24-year-old accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified u.s. documents that were published under wikileaks web site. former cincinnati city labor president diana fry sentenced to nearly five years in prison after stealing more than $750,000 from the union she created. she reportedly spent union dues on all kinds of personal
expenses, in ground pool at her home to luxuries for her pets. the judge so disgusted, she handed her even longer sentence than recommended under federal guidelines. those your headlines. >> steve: bonus round. let's talk a little bit about geraldo rivera -- he's with us today. you're summery now. >> brian: are you dressing for us now? >> only clean suit i had in the closet. does it make my eyes look good? [ laughter ] >> steve: i'm sure you were watching the fast and furious testimony. >> i was. >> steve: we're going to show eric holder and congressman goudie. it was a testy exchange about what was motivating the committee to bring him up. listen to this. >> why did your department in december say you were a target because you consistently take progressive stands? do you think that's why i'm asking you about fast and furious, because of your political ideology.
>> i will accept your question to me is one based in good faith. i'm not going to ignore reality and say all of the attacks that have been directed at me have been those that are nonpolitical in nature or that have come in good faith. >> mr. attorney general, you have the difficult job, but if you think that you are being singled out because of political ideology or race or any other characteristic or factor when it comes to fast and furious, you are sorely mistaken. >> brian: wow. >> i think at that holder wins that exchange because if the conversation -- the white southerner denying to the first black attorney general we've ever had that his motivation is either race or ideology, it brings the conversation down to exactly where attorney general holder wants it. >> brian: responding to what appear -- >> if you back up from the
acountry phony, i understand the frustration. the testimony is what he knew when he knew it. did he know about it prior to the death of mr. terry. the attorney general reads the same documents congress has and says wait a second, this doesn't say what it appears to say. >> steve: you got the committee, though, the republicans on the committee feel that the attorney general and the doj are stone walling because revealed yesterday that they've got something like 140,000 documents relating to fast and furious and holder's justice department turned over 7,000. >> but is that even relevant anymore when you have a situation, you have eric cantor and john boehner both resisting this call to have a contempt citation? so you have a division within the republican ranks that diminishes profoundly the clout of the committee. the committee looks more and
more radical compared to their own republican leadership. >> steve: do you think had is a political witch hunt? >> i think much more relevant if you step back is why isn't john boehner, why isn't eric cantor, why isn't the republican leadership embracing the efforts of the committee to strong arm eric holder into cooperating? you have to say that they've made a calculation that the destruction of the first african-american attorney general in a presidential election year, i'm just surmising. i think that it's all about politics now. i think the committee has done everything they can. they have set up the ball. it's been a year and a half of hearing after hearing after hearing. they're saying to their own leadership, hold him in contempt. and boehner is absolutely resisting. and you know, now if he were to move against the attorney
general at this late date, i'm not sure, steve, that it pays off. i think that the republicans, having made their point now, should declare victory and move on. >> gretchen: that's interesting analysis, looking for your thoughts on this next big story, which is the allegation that this administration is leaking national security secrets to make themselves look good on foreign policy. we're talking about the "new york times" big article on the kill list, the situation in yemen, maybe iran. >> three major stories. >> gretchen: what do you think? >> i say it is very clear that the administration has orchestrated a major public relations campaign. i think it is undeniable. i think that it is impossible that there is any other explanation. the proof is in the pudding, as you cited. before i say i don't know necessarily this is bad, hem cite all the stories that have leaked. first you had everything you ever wanted to know about the bin laden killing. the president's role intimately detailed, now access to film makers and all the rest of it. al-awlaki. >> kill list story in the "new
york times" and other publications. >> steve: the cyber attack. >> the cyber attack as indicated in sanger's book there. absolutely there is no question, they cite senior administration officials and many in the intelligence community. this is the difference between fast and furious and this latest scandal. in this scandal, what do you have? you have a senate intelligence committee fronted by two senators, one from either side of the aisle. you have diane fine stein on one side, chambliss on the other. the democrat and republican. it has far more power now because the senators are both on board. this is a bipartisan revulsion over what seems to be the cheapening of these great achievements to make political points. >> brian: for a guy that's been to yemen, been to iraq, been to afghanistan and knows what's on the line, to expose his intelligence, how do you feel about all this being out there
now and knowing we had a double agent inside from saudi arabia -- >> i think that's great question. i haven't examined my own heart. i don't know how much operational wisdom the enemy -- >> steve: it's bad. >> i am not suggesting it's not bad. i just don't know in terms of actual impact -- remember when all the guys were reloosed from guantanamo bay, then they escaped from afghan prisons. it's very difficult to track what damage they do afterwards and it's very difficult to track what damage these leaks have done long-term. but certainly, i would prefer that they kept their mouths shut or talked in general terms rather than giving the appearance that they are cheapening a noble achievement for short-term publicity. >> gretchen: what's going to be coming up in the near future is whether or not there were any criminal violations with regard to these leaks and that's what this -- >> i don't -- i mean, i guess. it's more about embarrassment.
the problem, you do a special counsel in an election year, steve, you look tacky. >> steve: a democrat and republican go for it. >> much different. >> brian: i'm going to go this far, to commit to your show on sunday. >> 10:00 o'clock eastern time. be there or be square. >> gretchen: thanks. have a great weekend. >> i'll wear a different color. >> brian: wear that suit! >> gretchen: how does a gas station attendant make a half million dollars a year by collecting food stamps and selling them? why the government never suspected a thing apparently. >> brian: then dedicated his life to public service, but he never wrote a memoir. when we come back, the personal stories of george h.w. bush shared for the first time in his own words in a movie. >> steve: and words sung by andy grammar performing live on the plaza as the "fox & friends" all american summer concert series rolls on live from new york. ♪
>> with a great president, i've seen what crosses that big desk. i've seen the unexpected crises that arrive in a cable in a young aide's hand. and so i know that what it all comes down to this election is the man at the desk and who should sit at that desk, my friends, i am that man! >> steve: that man, former president george herbert walker did she, dedicated his life to public service. when he stepped away from the white house, he did not write a memoir. now nearly 20 years later, he's sharing his personal story in his own words. jerry is a long-time friend of the bush family and the executive producer of the president's verbal memoir, hbo documentary called "41" that debuts next week. it's great to have you. >> great to have me.
>> steve: why didn't he write a memoir? >> they'll write one. they're write something. he never wrote something because he's not a brag gart and he never sat around saying oh, look what i did for the world. look what i did for the world. avenues guy who -- he was a guy who came from a great family. his mother was a fantastic woman. he married a wonderful woman, his family has expanded. he had a son who was president twice. another son who was governor of florida. he's had an extraordinary run. he was head of the c.i.a., head of the rnc. he was liaison to china under nixon. >> steve: you say he's the most qualified man to ever be president of the united states. >> in my opinion. i don't see how you can take anybody else'ses to yea and say they were more qualified than him. >> steve: these are such cool pictures and there he is driving his boat up in kennebunkport.
you have a house as well. you mention the fact that his son became president of the united states. you talk a little bit with him, the former president, about the other former president in your special. let's take a look at that. >> what was it like to see your son elected president? >> very emotional for me. very proud father. first time it's happened, i guess, in the history of our country, except for the adams. it was enormous. source of great pride for the family, for the father. >> steve: very emotional talking about his family. >> yeah. but you see, that's who he is. he is very emotional. he lost a child at three years old. emotional guy and his family is emotional. they love each other and he's not, as you can see just now when he was talking about his son, he's proud and his eyes well up with pride. but he won't sit there and say,
look how wonderful i am. i gave birth to a son who became president of the united states twice. he won't do that. >> steve: he's been a very good friend of yours for a very long time. how is his health? >> it's not great. but he's working at it and he's still not quitting. he still jumps in the boat and drives it 750 miles an hour. so he's a guy that goes for it. he's been a great friend of mine. what he did for me, which was so extraordinary and continues to do, was he opened up a world to me, with all my success, and i've been very lucky in life and i've had a lot of success. with all my success examine all the people i knew, he opened up a completely other world to me and let me live at the lincoln bedroom and let me stay in the queen's bedroom and go to state dinners and have lunch with champagne and be there when gorbachev showed up. >> steve: the documentary
premieres next week on hbo. >> 88th birthday. >> steve: jerry, hollywood legend, thank you very much for joining us. >> thanks. >> steve: that's great. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, newark, new jersey mayor cory booker, was gunning for a and the in the president's cabinet secretary go around. but the campaign says he's dead to us. wow. what's that about? we'll tell you. the folks at sea world bringing the ocean to us. sea horse, penguins and al gators. oh, my. first f street performer to the top of the charts, singer andy grammar in our summer concert series, live on the plaza right this second. ♪ [ whimpers ]

>> gretchen: 24 minutes after the top of the hour. quick headlines. while you were sleeping, russia kept fire ago new missile. it hit its intended target in kazakhstan. they're hoping to counter u.s. missile system. it got ugly during a greek tv show's political debate. an extremist party member first throwing water at one female left. then smacks another. smacking another female in the face! oh, my goodness. the fight apparently over the country's political unrest.
they might be fighting over the future since they're broke. brian? >> brian: all right. today "fox & friends" goes under the sea in honor of world ocean day. the folks at sea world -- the pelican does not like how i'm reading. hear bringing the ocean to us. this is angie, animal ambassador to sea world and bush gardens and some of our friends have made the trip with you. hello. >> thank you for having us. we have brought amazing animals from sea world and bush gardens to help us celebrate world oceans day. >> brian: you start with the horse. >> we'll start with the sea horse. these are truly unique animals. they're using their tails right now to hold on to this coral. >> brian: i understand that they pretend to be asleep when things move. is that correct? n they use their camouflage is their main defense. they're not very big animals. they live in a big ocean. so they use camouflage to help defend themselves. but they really depend on a clean water because they live in shallow areas where debris and
ear pollutants can build up. >> brian: when ai can'tmen used to ride them. >> it's the male that bears the unborn young. >> brian: get out of here. >> yeah. >> brian: let's see the pelican. he's not just any pelican or is it just any pelican? >> this is not just any pelican. this is actually a rescue pelican rescued and now at sea world, orlando. the brown pelican in particular dives for its food. so it is very important to keep the ocean clean because they're going to dive in, get a mouthful of food and with that, they can pick up other things. unfortunately fish hooks are something that they will pick up and they also get tangled up in discarded fishing lines. if you see this pouch, he's showing you his pouch. >> brian: i appreciate it. let's meet the otter. >> this is one of my favorites here. >> brian: he's got a little
built-in -- >> he does. that's because these love to move around and they're very playful. this is an asian. it's going to be found in swamps of china, india and asia. it's a good reminder that all bodies of water will eventually lead to the ocean. so it's important to keep every river, lake and stream clean. >> brian: i'm taking my otter for a walk. you can do that here. >> yes. he comes from discovery cove. again, a beautiful animal that will feed on fish. >> brian: you got to go there. how many sea worlds are there? >> three. one in orlando, san antonio, and one in san diego. this one is coming to us. >> brian: let's meet the alligator. how old is this one? >> he's eight years old. i'm going to sit him here so you can get good feel of the alligator. this is over 20,000 animals that sea world rescued in the last four decades. she was a rescue from hurricane katrina.
>> brian: will she get bigger? >> oh, yes. about 12 to 15 long and 800 pounds. >> brian: do they get along with penguins? >> not so much. >> brian: my favorite animal ever, the penguin. >> they wouldn't really meet because penguins are all in the southern hemisphere. these are found more in a warm coastal areas of south america. >> brian: do they make good pets? >> they do not make good pets, no. but they do very well at sea world. these definitely are just one of 18 species of penguins that really rely on a healthy fish population and are very much affected by coastal pollution. >> brian: wow. so we got to keep the oceans clean. why do kids love penguins? >> how can you not? >> brian: they're small. >> i heard you say you love penguin, but they're not always fond of you. but i think this one is proving you wrong. >> brian: you know who does not like me? the whole breed of jack ass
penguins. they have turned on me. >> really, it is very important we keep all of our oceans clean for all of these animals and for us because it does provide so much for us, food, the air we breathe. >> brian: by the way, we have another penguin walking away. the otter gets a leash, but the penguin is out of control! thanks for bringing every down. it's a great time to be aware of the oceans and keep everything clean and go to sea world, bush ganders. summer is here. kids can learn at the same time as having a good time. >> that's right. we can inspire people by sharing these animals. >> brian: gretchen, coming up is your birthday. don't be surprised if i get you the penguin you've always wanted. >> gretchen: okay. that would be a gift that would be a big surprise. >> brian: or an otter. >> gretchen: but i have to move to the arctic circle. >> brian: am i allowed to pet this? >> yeah. >> gretchen: that's the most tame i've seen with you wild animals. coming up, president clinton now

>> steve: time for our shot of the morning, right there in the spot shadow. congressional rivals nancy pelosi, former speaker, and current speaker, john boehner, sharing a hug, perhaps on the awkward side. house speaker painer putting their differences aside to congratulate pelosi on her 25 years of service in congress. that's not so awkward. congratulations. >> gretchen: something else that might be awkward is the relationship between president obama and newark, new jersey mayor cory booker. as you recall, he's the one who first came out and said the bain capital experience for mitt romney was not that bad and it was nauseating he was being attacked for such. could it be true now, according
to the new york post, that the obama administration has told cory booker that you are dead to us? that is the headline. exclusive article today, apparently the story goes like this, cory booker may have been the housing and urban development secretary under president obama in a second term, but that now they would never consider that, even though he's mystifyingly to me, campaigning for president obama. >> brian: the last time he was here action i asked hip, is that a natural, you going to washington to work with the administration? and he said no. i got so much to do in newark because it was left such a mess by the other clown. so he has taken over and done an incredible job. if this is true, it's not only what he said on "meet the press," it's also what he did after. >> steve: that's right. because after he was on "meet the press" and he said the bain attacks were nos nauseating, the white house said you have to walk that back. he said i'm going to take my time of the he released a youtube and did not clear it
with the white house. he's dead to us part. meanwhile, somebody else who is dead to them for a little while was bill clinton after he came out and he said, you know, mitt romney's business career, his resume, sterling at bain. this past week he said we are in a recession and he said that perhaps they should extend at least temporarily, the bush era tax cuts. after he did that, he clarified. then yesterday he apologized for it. >> i'm very sorry about what happened yesterday. i thought somebody in to be done on the fiscal cliff before the election. apparently nothing has to be done 'til the first of the year. i think he should stick with his position and negotiate with -- i really was under the impression that they would have to do something before the election and i was trying to figure out how they would kick it to last the election.
once i realized nothing had to be done 'til the first of the year, i support his position. i supported the extent of them last year action but i think his position is the right one and necessary if we're ever going to get a comprehensive deal. >> gretchen: i'm mystified on this one. why the president continues to not agree with president obama, i don't know, you be the judge. but to have to apologize for it, i don't really get that. i do know one thing, president obama needs president clinton for his reelection bid and that's why he will continue to put up with some of these gaffes, if you want to call it that, 'cause he needs him. >> brian: he'll still ask him to walk back his gaffes. >> steve: what happened yesterday in the politico, some senior officials said the reason bill clinton said that stuff is he's 65, he's lost a step. >> gretchen: yeah, right. one of the smartest politicians ever. >> steve: joe biden is 69. so if age were something, it's not. come on. >> gretchen: we got to get to headlines. fox news alert. marine general john allen, commander of nato forces in
afghanistan, issuing an apology for an air strike in afghanistan earlier this week. general allen flying there to make the apology. it comes after afghan president karzai said the 18 people killed were all civilians. the strike occurring at a house in the logar province. nato soldiers were calling for a strike there. >> steve: now extreme weather in new jersey. it was quite a scare for high school seniors as what appeared to be a tornado rolling up toward them during graduation ceremony. look at this. the storm system brought high winds and clouds and sent the graduates running out of their seats. many thought the dark cloud was a tornado. sure kind of looks like one. but it actually was a wall cloud. not spinning. >> brian: how does a gas station attendant rake in $555,000 a
year? well, the answer is food stamp fraud. the owner of a gas station convenience store in marietta, georgia, sentenced to three years in federal prison for the scheme. she says all she had to do was charge a customer's government issued food stamp card for twice the amount they requested. the government would pay up, no questions asked every single time. >> steve: we're one day way from when i'll have another looks to make history and become the first horse since 1978 to win the triple crown. you're look at new video in to us of horses going for a practice run this morning. anna coyman is live in the new york city area with a preview. hello, anna. >> good morning to everybody. the horses are stretching their legs, getting ready for the big dance tomorrow. but despite this humble beginnings and relative lack of success until only recently, the jockey for horse, i'll have another, is trying to do what hasn't been done in a generation, win the triple crown
and live up to his new nickname, super mario. success hasn't come easily for 25-year-old jockey mario gutierrez. he's only won 12% of his races in the past year. his luck changed when he climbed on i'll have another, winning the kentucky derby and the preakness. he is now positioned to end a 34-year drought and become a triple crown winner at the belmont stakes. >> i'm happy. i'm very happy. everything happen lately is amazing. unbelievable. >> gutierrez is not one of the top 15 jockeys at his home track in california. but i'll have another's owner and trainer decided to take a chance ton the long shot jockey anyway. >> horses just run for mario. i'm not sure exactly what makes that happen, but he talks to horses and they run for him. >> i'll have another's trainer says he's fully behind the inexperienced jockey and hopes the duo will make history.
>> it will be nice for me to feel the track is a mile and a half racetrack. i never been in that kind of race. i've never been in new york, so everything is new for me. >> gutierrez says he is doing his homework, watching videos of previous triple crown winners. we'll find out how super, super marrow and his horse, i'll have another, truly are tomorrow at belmont stakes with a post time of 6:40 p.m back to you. >> gretchen: we'll be watching. thanks so much. coming up, if you've got a phone, land line or cell, don't miss the story next. average americans losing hundreds of dollars out of their bank accounts because they aned one phony call. you got to pay special attention to this. >> brian: my phone is just two cups and a string. when you're in charge of a train going 60 miles per hour, you probably don't want to read the newspaper, even if it's the "new york post," which is why. >> steve: it is. speak of great. shear a preview of -- here is a preview of what's happening this
weekend on "fox & friends." >> incredible story tomorrow. 43 years after the fact, letters that a young veteran wrote to his mom finally a arrived. we'll have a family member here to talk about those. >> also, one woman found at her job was outsourced. she decide i'm going to open my made in the usa store so that i can create jobs and they don't get outsourced. she's going to be here to tell her story tomorrow. >> he used to suck at girls, i'm told. now he's a happily married man. we'll talk to justin halpin about his journey for finding love. now back to andy grammar. here is the song "slow." andy!

>> gretchen: huh? what's behind this? could it happen to you? i'm joined by fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. >> you shouldn't be laughing because millions of people get these calls and millions of dollars get scammed. this is some outfit out of india that gets ahold of your number and says that the federal department of crime prevention is going to come to your house or your family's house and arrest you unless you pay a debt that you don't really owe! >> gretchen: isn't your first clue if it's the u.s. government calling and it sounds like it's from india might not be the u.s. government? >> when you hear this guy calling, a lot of people get intimidated and upset because the voice comes on and we're used to foreign voices on the phone with service centers. so someone says, oh, the federal department of crime prevention is going to dom your house and arrest you. hang up! don't speak to these people. you don't owe them money. check with your own credit bureau on that. there is tips now. if you think a caller may be a
fake debt collector, the first thing, what's your name? what's your address? what's your number? give it to me. if i owe the money, i'll pay it. number two, stop speak. may be fun to play with them across the pond, but don't. don't give them any personal information. they'll say, what's your social security number? give me your exact address. give me your master it is card. no! contact the creditor. if there is a national creditor involved. then report it to the federal trade commission and your state attorney general because they're looking to indict these people of the the f.b.i. is involved. they're bringing civil suits in california and other places. you're incredulous with this. >> gretchen: because this is not so funny. some people they call actually might owe money to debt collectors, but not this them. >> not them! so sending it to india is not going to help you with your debt to cable vision. then you're double in debt and it's ridiculous. these people belong in jail! don't be fooled by this, folks. say, send may validation -- send
me a validation notice. >> brian: i gave $120 million to a nigerian king. they just e-mailed me. was that a mistake? >> no. because you will make interest on that and that's fine. >> brian: i told you! >> gretchen: you're not supposed to answer those e-mails. he needs legal counsel. i got to go. more with andy grammar coming up. first, let's check in with martha. >> hey there. coming up, what's being called a brewing scandal now over intelligence leaks. why this has become the biggest story out there right now. will the white house have to back down on the issue of an independent investigation and we're waiting for a healthcare decision from the supreme court. both sides preparing their response. we'll see you at the top of the hour wake up!
