sugarcane. ♪ >>a minute, mom! let's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. >> good morning, everyone, sunday, june 10th, i'm alisyn camerota, an extreme weather alert for you, dry heat fueling an 8,000 acre wildfire in colorado. structures destroyed an unknown number of people missing and officials saying that it's zero percent contained this morning. plus, heavy rains are battering the west coast. rick reichmuth is here in the weather center for us straight ahead. >> dave: investigation into the alleged white house leaks drawing fresh criticism and new concerns that they could go far beyond the oval office, just how far could the leaks go and could it impact president obama's chances of
reelection. >> plus, regulation nation, forget that super sized soda ban, is a fat tax the key to fighting obesity. that's what some are saying, do we need either of them. we report, you decide. where is my coke. >> dave: on the way. ♪ >> good morning, everyone, breaking news for you right now. we want to get right to the fox news alert. we are getting brand new reports of a deadly shooting at an apartment complex near the campus of auburn university in alabama. at least two people were killed and several others reportedly fighting for their lives at this hour. one local paper reports some of the victims may have been members of the auburn university football team although police are not confirming this information at this hour.
we to it happened at a party overnight and shooter or shooters could still be on the run. and we will keep you updated as this develops. >> clayton: the latest on foxnews.com as well. we will have much more on that story and extreme weather out there, too. >> dave: yeah, an extreme weather alert out of my home state of colorado, a raging wildfire fueled by high wind and hot temperatures, forcing scores of evaluations. so far burned more than 8,000 acres and damaged at least ten structures although officials nor sure if they're homes or other kind of buildings at this point. at this time it's believed several people might be as well. >> clayton: and flooding in parts of alabama and florida in mobile county, alabama severe storms leaving cars totally submerged in water and roadways inundated with waters making them impassable. drivers told to stay home to work on the flooding. >> alisyn: and people are taking to canoes, as you can
see to get around. and up to 30 inches of rain expected by the end of the weekend and several drivers stranded of course by heavy rains and having to be rescued. thank goodness rick reichmuth is here, telling us what can go around the country. crazy to get that kind of rain when it's not a tropical system. you think a hurricane or a tropical storm, that's not what this is. 13.13 inches in pensacola, florida, yesterday. and following a 24 hour period and actually just yesterday and that's the second most they've had of any day and when you think of the tropical storms, and not just physical. mobile got there and a few isolated spots that got 18 inches of rain just yesterday and the problem, it's not done. a lot of rain moving in over the next three to four days and so the pattern continues with us and unfortunately, for a lot of places, we're going to see significant rain falling again, places like pensacola, another five inches
of rain falling in the next couple of days, i think the worst that we saw the heavy downpours, at one point. over three and a half inches an hour in pensacola. that is too much for it to handle. five inches not necessarily so much, but because the ground is so saturated now, that rain immediately causes additional flooding concerns and we'll see it pull farther to the north, georgia and carolinas, and that's good. where a lot of the worst drought is going on and wipes an a lot of that drought off. which is good. right here along the gulf, major, major problems with that. looking similar to the the way it did yesterday and that's kind of the problem and that means it's raining kind of exactly where it was raining yesterday. and those are heavy rain showers, areas from around new orleans, over towards about panama city, and that's kind of the bulls eye where it was yesterday. a couple of other spots, the northeast looks like yesterday, clouds and rain showers where you were yesterday, likely you're going to see it again, and if you saw sunshine, you're more
going to be seeing sunshine. across the west, guys, the fire you're talking about, in colorado, that was a very windy day as the cold front moved through and that helps the firefighters, certainly, and with the new fire and conditions very, very dry, they're going to have problems. the severe storms those will be problems. >> dave: rick, always a problem in colorado, so little rainfall there, and certainly need more. >> alisyn: we have more news making headlines, a scary moments for a passengers on u.s. airways flight charlotte to los angeles as many man tried to bum rush the cockpit and witnesses say he flew into that rage after flight attendants refused to serve him alcohol apparently because he was already too drunk. he carried a lighter and screaming and they subdued him until the plane is landed. the man is not identified. 29 years old and authorities
deciding whether to press charges. another country now asking europe to save failing banks. spain announcing the deal. the bailout up for 125 billion dollars, and spain is the largest country seeking help, the deal after pressure from the white house and international investors. europe's growing economic crisis is expected for countries around the world and ben bernanke warning it could have major results for our economy. dave with the horse race joost no chance of a triple crown at the 144th belmont stakes after "i'll have another" was forced to drop out. plenty of excitement with a fantastic photo finish. >> and union rags, fighting. painter, union rags has got him. and union rags in the belmont stakes!. >> dave: wow, what a finish. can't believe they laid room
for union rags to run the rail there. the three-year-old union rags edging past painter, thanks to a slim opening, too big on the rail. and union rags skipped the preakness to focus on belmont and the john havevalasqeea's second win there. and triple crown for second place. rarely see that. he led all three races with the horses and only to come up short in the end. >> clayton: that's the sport of king, again what is the sport of politics? >> wow, you've stumped me there, i've got the nothing. >> alisyn: a sport-- >> i guess a problem. try to figure it out. i figured you'd have one, i don't have one. it's been a tough week for the world of politics and tough for the leads this have country and more about this
leak controversy, attorney general eric holder, appointing two u.s. attorneys to lead the investigation to go into this and questions from republicans as to whether or not this is a politicized move. why didn't they appoint an outside special prosecutor the way that president george w. bush did with the valerie plame leak investigation. and representative lamar smith on fox news says he's worried that this may get pushed until after the election, take a listen. >> this ag is so politicized in his office, it makes you wonder if these individuals aren't going to be, you know, pushed to delay the report until after the election, whatever it might be. we can't take the president's world for it and that's why we have the investigation. >> alisyn: and lanny davis was on, yesterday and says it's not partisan, every single white house does have leaks and republicans and democrats and said something interesting on huckabee, he himself did it and what he called himself when he was leaked to the
media. >> it's not a partisan issue. democrats and republicans are patriots and this information endangering live sources and methods is serious, but it's not a defense, but it's a fact that everybody does it and nobody should do it. but when you use the expression administration officials, governor, i know having used that expression to camouflage myself as a leaker, when i was doing political placements for stories that i wanted to be sure were published before they were national televised hearings about the campaign finance allegations, i would call myself an administration official or a senior official, without reference to the white house. so, these people could be spread throughout the government. >> dave: now, if it's been done before and we acknowledge that he says, that it has, never to this extent. how many times have we sat here and staggered by the details that come out and particularly mundane news story what our navy seals are
up to and that it was seal team six that did a certain thing. that we had a double agent with al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, the details of the operation are staggering. >> alisyn: and we're talking the national security details. >> dave: absolutely, 100%. >> alisyn: and what lanny was talking about, a political placement when you wanted good press on an upcoming policy change. and yesterday attorney general schaeffer said had endangered lives and had actually resulted in some deaths. >> this goes at least to the national security level and it we're talking about senior officials and i recent we need more polygraphs. these are coming from intent againintent-- let me be very, very clear here. people have died. they may not be american people, but al-qaeda, once the
information leaked how the underwear bomber was discovered, they purged their ranks. by doing that, dave, we have now left ourselves open in ways we have not been open since before 9/11. let me be clear, people have died here. >> dave: it's not just that, it's changed the war on terror moving forward. you need people to spy for you and if they feel they're going to be outed by your press, no one will spy for you, and provide that type of information going forward. >> clayton: you're referring of course to the double agent who managed to-- >> the doctor in pakistan. >> clayton: right, absolutely right. much more on that coming up throughout the show and of course great stuff on fox news sunday this morning and chris wallace will catch that later, too, on the leak investigation and otherwise, also to this fou we have been talking about it here on the show for a while, which is the bain attack ads that the obama campaign has been rolling out. whether or not they're effective and two weeks ago, cory booker, the mayor of newark, new jersey.
slammed those attacks and said they made him nauseated and a number of top democrats came out and said he didn't think it was a smart line of attack. now, the guy responsible, basically for putting out the ads, bill burton a former white house deputy press secretary who left and runs a super pac now, sent out memo yesterday, guys, you know what, they are he' working. >> alisyn: he says they're going to continue for whoever reason, whatever research they have, the super pac, supports the president, believes it resonates with voters. burton says criticism of romney's business records may not resonate with elites, its with the voters who will decide this election. and made the supposed private sector job experience, and qualifications for the president without explaining time as a corporate buyout ceo prepares him to represent all americans or create jobs.
>> and then purple strategies, they found that 47% of people think that private equity hurts workers, 38% say it helps the economy. >> clayton: right. >> dave: it's not that black and white. there's a kernel of truth to both. and in some cases it does hurt workers, but in most cases it helps the economy. that poll is oversimplyfied. i think you need to be a little more clear and honest about what private equity-- >> that poll and maybe the focus group. he's referring to the focus group and basically saying that they've-- they think that bain capital is tied to the very institutions that are not in the best interest of the middle class. maybe that kernel of truth bubbles past the sentiment and bill burton sees something in the focus group, now what? maybe we're on to something here. >> alisyn: yesterday on "fox & friends" we had a colleague of mitt romney, a former colleague on talking about how private equity works and how mitt romney was as a leader there and he expelled the
notion that they're just corporate raiders. >> it's just laughable. if i'd gone into an investment of credit committee meeting and said we're going to strip this company in a matter of years and i would have been laughed out of the room. business is so much more complex. the steps we have to take to make a company stronger, more competitive. grow it faster, it took many years to implement that. the idea it was short-term is laughable and i could tell you mitt was almost exclusively long-term. he's not as practiced as some people are at giving speeches and saw him in public i saw him around the table trying to solve really difficult problems. >> dave: to me, the insightful part, someone who knows mitt romney as a businessman and leader. and nice to hear--
>> i hear in what bill burton is saying is slight nuance, a slight shift in ago after bain. and basically what he's saying now, how is that relevant to being president? how is anything you did in the private sector, running a private equity company, how is that going to help you run a big bloated bureaucracy like the federal government with all of its entitlements, you're going to have to be president for both sides. i hear that. >> dave: and thread that needle. but mitt romney hasn't done that is your point. you can thread that needle. a way to say this is why it helps to be president. and they haven't necessarily made that. >> clayton: or the point is going to shift to his time as governor of massachusetts. >> alisyn: more relevant. >> clayton: and i mention priorities usa, who put out the ads, spent 7 million dollars to go after bain capital, it doesn't look like it's going to stop. >> alisyn: and meantime, let's talk about one of your favorite subjects, sugary soda, dave.
the best way to get people to stop drinking those like dave is in-- >> there's no sugar in here. >> alisyn: and what's the answer. and what michael bloomberg did, banning all 16 ounces over, sugary drinks, or something that richmond, california was suggesting and that they might do, put a big tax on all sugary drinks. >> clayton: a big tax on sugary drinks with the idea of having had a fat tax, is one third of america is now obese and all science now points that this is going to up 40% in five to section years and 6 6 60% in ten years. should there be a fat tax in general, or just focusing on drinks. that's the argument that coke is it making. why are you singling out one of us or one part of industry. >> dave: and one said tax 20%.
and coke says the consumption of sugary drinks has been decreasing steadily the past couple of years. and what about personal responsibility and people deciding what is good for them and what is bad for them. >> clayton: that's the question, because they don't. >> alisyn: people can't be trusted and that's the problem. >> dave: that's the american way. >> alisyn: yes, a great ideal, perhaps to trust people to always make the right health, nutritious decisions and turns out because so many of us are obese and because the health care costs spread to you. >> dave: you can't tax your way to better behavior. >> alisyn: they say the study in the british medical journal, in fact when you add that onerous tax. >> clayton: look at smoking. >> dave: that's not what it said, it said, if, if you parent with a providing for healthy food, not alone, if you pair it. >> clayton: and that's exactly what they did with smoking. >> dave: subsidizing hl think food. we're not only going to tax
unhealthy food, but subsidize. >> clayton: why are we doing it now, why are we subsidizing unhealthy food now? the argument from subsidizing certain industries and picking winners and losing and why are we subsidizing ethanol and-- >> i know you always come back to that you guys-- >> and have the government provide your food all day long and wake up as there's a platter for you. >> clayton: the argument people just-- if they go to a restaurant and 30 sugary drinks to pick from and not one healthy thing. coke started to get out of the sugary business. >> dave: coke zero. >> clayton: not only coke zero, but coke's names on other sorts of healthy drinks. >> alisyn: like water. >> clayton: they own what dasani water. >> dave: and go two rounds on this one. good thing we have four hours. >> alisyn: yes, let's stay relaxed everyone, and get comfortable. what do you think? a fat tax is a better
deterrent than banning it. >> don't you have the right to be fat and die when you're 45 years old, too. >> alisyn: you know, you're paying that. you know that there's a-- >> that's the argument. let us know. meanwhile, we've got more energy. are we out of gas yet. >> alisyn: no, still on. >> clayton: the nation's unemployment rate at 8.2% and only 69,000 jobs created last month. economy remains in focus as president obama and mitt romney gear up for november. >> the private sector is doing fi fine. >> for the president of the united states to stand up and say the economy is doing fine it's going to go down in history as an extraordinary miscalculation and misunderstanding, a president who's out of touch. >> dave: although the president later backtracked on that comment. how are his policies impacting america's economic freedom and liberty. >> alisyn: a special guest, let's bring in the reverend,
author of the new book "defending the free market, the moral case for a free economy." nice to see you. great to be with you. >> alisyn: on a sunday morning, so, there is a moral case for capitalism and our type of economy how. >> capitalism is a narrow word. what i'm trying to say, what the free economy is about, more about human beings, human actions and bringing our values to bear, how we create, we're physical and transcendent and spiritual. when we touch the world, we bring out things like oil and turn it into energy, service for other human beings, that's the moral basis of it, although i think the word capitalism as marxist overtones is very narrow. >> dave: and you've evolved on this from the left and some would argue to the right so you're taking politics out of it. >> i'm the not-- >> describe your evolution, what happened. >> in the '70s, like a lot of
people i went crazies and involved with left wing causes and with jane fonda and tom hayden, if there was a sit-in in california i was sitting in. a picket line, i was on it, two or three times, and someone gave me some books and i read them. the redistribution of wealth was not the solution to helping the poor. that is creating more wealth. the pie isn't static, it's not to be cut up and means grow the pie. >> alisyn: what about health reform? >> because then more people, you know, rise. >> rise up. >> rise up, there are more opportunities for work and buy goods and services at less prices, things like that. that's the kind of utilitarian argument, practical argument for the free economy. who is it that has the right to private property. it's the human person has the
right to use his or her creativity and to create wealth. that's what it's all about. the growing of the pie is a representation the of the creation of wealth. and that's-- when i came back to the church after 13 years of being away, should have, no, you shouldn't have heard my first confession. >> alisyn: a long one. >> it shocked the jesuit i gave it to. >> clayton: you make the argument, that the idea of socialized medicine has hurt technology. you have certain hospitals that have certain devices because of innovation, who are in effect stifled now. >> i am. we dp to a store and buy something, what do we do, we look at the quality and take into consideration the recommendations from friends or experience and then consider the price. when you go in to a doctor ace appointment. do you know how much your doctor is going to charge are you for the procedure he's recommending.
can you imagine if the government said, grocery store, go in and the third party will take care of it. won't be steaks or large drink every day. >> alisyn: on the flip side. isn't there a feeling of moral principle that everybody should get access to medical care and not everybody does. >> you're absolutely right. when i'm asked, do you believe in universal health care, i say yes, i believe in it and just so i believe in universal food and clothing. the question isn't whether everybody should have access to these things. the question, who should be providing it and what's the instruments that best provides more of it. and we see in the medical practices, procedures that are not regulated by the government, pet care, for instance, that that's competitive or lasik surgery, that's competitive. those things that are, that are subs died and regulated, they become more expensive and more rare. >> clayton: you can read more about all of this in the book, defending the free market, the moral case for a free economy.
father, great to see you. >> dave: and want to help the poor, start the business. father. >> good to be with you. >> dave: coming up, so much for being a kid. we'll tell you where the sidewalk chalk, yes, sidewalk chalk is being banned. >> alisyn: and one school says this patriotic song, dave's favorite. >> dave: my favorite. >> alisyn: is too offensive. ♪ i'm proud to be an american where at least i know i'm free ♪ >> wait until you hear this, justin bieber is okay. they're at it again. ♪ baby, baby, baby, oh, thought you'd always be mine ♪ ♪ baby, baby, oh i stepped on the machine, and it showed me the pressure points on

the shooting took place late at night. and right now appears that the shooter or shooters may still be on the run and police will release more details later this morning and we will keep you updated on this unfolding rah tragedy. another story from alabama a manhunt for an accused killer is over this morning, police arrested 22-year-old marcus lee after someone called in a tip. charged with murdering in the shooting deaths of nine-year-old twins and their 73-year-old baby sitter. and the three were last seen sunday when the mother dropped them off. and found her body two days later on the side of a dirt road. how terrible. the new york post reporting that the drone strike that killed the al-qaeda leader this week was so spot on, only destroyed two rooms in the house where he was living. al-libbi reportedly asleep in the pakistani compound when the five foot drone struck at

pacquiao dominated bradley early, never able to knock him down. the crowd booed the decision and every member of the media said that pacquiao won this fight and reports are even bradley's manager scored the fight 8-4 in favor of pacquiao, it's tough to tell which sport had a tougher weekend, boxing or horse racing not good for either one. boxing has long been said to be rigged, a terrible decision. >> clayton: this will not help the cause. >> dave: there will be a rematch and people will say it's all about the money for the rematch. >> alisyn: stop fighting, just get along. >> clayton: just play bingo together. check with rick reichmuth who was sent outside into the rain. >> hey, guys, not in the rain here, in fact, it's really nice here, at least for the start of the day, i tell what you, big problems across the gulf coast yesterday and thought we'd see inches of rain in pensacola, we saw 13 inches in pensacola some areas saw more than that. maybe another five or so
inches in a few isolated spots. all of those areas right now have flash flood warnings going on-- excuse me, flood warnings in a couple of areas right around mobile and to the north of lake ponchartrain in new orleans, with flash flooding going on at this moment and heavy rain continues across the area and if you can safely send your pictures from here, please do at rick reichmuth, put them on the facebook page or fox and friends website or e-mail as well. move forward and take a look at the temperatures, across the country. still very warm, at least to start the day across the central plains and hopefully, changing conditions todayment and show you the forecast. looking at the northeast, where you saw the rain yesterday, we are going to see a little bit today. kind after stalled out front stretching around syracuse, down to new york city and see some scattered showers and a little bit of clouds from final to time. but, a little bit warmer than yesterday in d.c., getting up to 92. and cleveland 90. down to the the southeast, where the big problems are, all of the very heavy rain
falling across the areas of the central gulf and moving in towards georgia now and north georgia and that rain is welcome, but some spots might receive three to four inches and might cause flooding in across north george ga. the northern plains, the threat for severe weather today. stretching from around areas of minnesota down towards parts of kansas and see hail and winds and maybe a tornado or two, across minnesota and maybe wisconsin and across areas of the west, very cool behind that front and less windy than yesterday and that's good news for the fire that started in colorado yesterday and the other fires that continue to burn across the areas of the west. all right, guys, back to you inside. >> thanks, rick. we got some sidewalk chalk in here. >> i heart fox and friends. >> that's so nice. >> clayton: home owners association on fox and friends are going to-- >> roger just called, clean that up. >> alisyn: my point is, there's no problem with that,

the author of hollywood hypocrites, jason, nice to have you here this morning. >> thank you, alisyn. >> alisyn: i'm sorry, hollywood celebrities support a democratic president, you're shocked? >> no, i don't think we should be shocked, but republicans seem to dismiss celebrity endorsements as those are just dumb celebrities and endorsement doesn't mean much. george clooney's event raised 15 million and two-thirds that have.came from people, ordinary citizens just bidding $3 a pop to dine with their favorite celebrity. obama cannot run on his record, he needs people to make an emotional appeal on his behalf. who better than celebrities, who are best at making emotional appeals for us to see their movies. >> dave: now the rnc is running an ad against this, trying to use it to their advantage to raise money that the president is one of celebrity president and here is some video of that ad. but you say that the republicans should not jumped estimate the appeal and effectiveness, how do they balance it out.
counter act that. >> first of all, yeah, they shouldn't underestimate obama's launch to stardom with hollywood and counter act that showing not even the supporters in hollywood live by the prescriptions. take bon jovi, for instance, going on air force one, going to some mega fundraiser and turns out bon jovi, mega rich we hear about should be paying their fair amount of taxes and turns out that bohn joeive classifies himself as a bee farmer, so he can write off a jaw dropping 98% of his taxes. >> alisyn: what is he farming? >> bee farming, i thought he was a cheesy '80s rocker, but-- >> my fellow of jersey. and he helps the homeless and does things on the side and interesting he found this loophole. why are we susceptible?
i admit that i do sort of take note when a celebrity is endorsing something. why are we so susceptible to what they like? >> we're infatuated with hollywood culture, and way too much political influence. when he meets with the actors and talk energy schemes, they tweet it. and the younger demographic pay attention and go to the fundraisers or events around the country. >> dave: i'm curious, does it make people get out and vote. does it pay off in that capacity. folks, let us know on twitter. does it impact the vote. >> alisyn: there's a wildfire raging out of control in colorado, many people missing this morning, as evacuations are underway there and we will have the latest for you at the top of the hour. >> dave: then, new york wants to make pot legal and police
the head of the international faith based coalition, bishop ron allen and the alliance project. >> good morning. >> clayton: let me start with you. why is it a smart idea to decriminalize marijuana usage. >> keep in mind marijuana possession has been decriminalized in new york and passed a law, we should not be expending limited police resources on busting people for small amounts of marijuana that was changed in 1977. the governor's proposal says we're going to make marijuana in public be a violation not a criminal offense and this is because in new york city, 50,000 people were arrested last year for marijuana possession, number one arrest in the city and nearly all of the people arrested, 85% are black and latino, even though, whites use marijuana at higher rates, the governor says he wants to address this disparity and law enforcement says, we need this law fixed and the loophole closed so
officers know when to charge for the crime and or when to give the violation. >> and bishop, it sounds like sound reasoning here, resources, disproportionate number of minorities arrested for this. why do you have a problem for this? >> no way possible by legalizing an illicit drug, would it cause arrests to go down. the logic is, a fantasy logic. you're looking at the blacks, hispanics and white arrests. what makes sense is that is the new york police department have a problem. you mean to tell me that they have some type of magical mechanism before they pull an individual over that says they have marijuana in the car? we have to absolutely say that they are targeting blacks and they're targeting hispanics and legalizing any amount of
marijuana will cause crimes to go up. and so-- >> respond to that. that's an interesting point. >> let's be clear here. this is actually not about legalizing marijuana at all. keep in mind this proposal keeps marijuana illegal, but simply states if someone is caught with a small amount and public view, they would be given a ticket not arrested. nobody wants to use-- a constant refrain we don't want young people involved. it's hard, 75 million dollars a year to arrest young people for small amounts of pot, saddle them with a life long criminal record that makes it difficult for them to get employment, go to school. how is that an effective strategy, it's not. >> clayton: bishop you say in california they tried it and it was a disaster, why? >> it is an absolute disaster. we smell marijuana in restaurants, in the park, on our block, and in the store. and fb 1449 did not work and here is what is really wrong
with that proposal. we have an 80% increase in use among our teens from 2008 to 2011. how can our youth and teens say no when the adults around them are saying yes? they have made the teenagers believe that it's okay to smoke an illicit drug and that is not right. >> clayton: gabriel, let me give you the final word. keep in mind over the last 30 years, marijuana use remained roughly stable and increased slightly, but arrests for marijuana have doubled. what that showed us, arresting people for marijuana does nothing to impact use. the government keeps burning a crime burning in the park or whatever, and it's going to address racial disparities and shouldn't have a program where we're arresting, large amounts of black and latino youth, when white people doing the
same. and this is going to save money. >> clayton: lets us know how you feel about this, email@example.com. coming up on the show, attorney general eric holder blasting laws and calling them discriminatory. is he right? you're watching "fox & friends." if you're one of those folks who gets heartburn and then treats day after day... well, shoot, that's like checking on your burgers after they're burnt!

i love that one of our writers thought of beyonce. >> dave: kardashian. >> clayton: take a kardashian, any kardashian, starts right now. ♪ >> good morning, everybody. thanks for being here. let' get right to a fox news alert we've been following for you, about a deadly shooting rampage an apartment complex shooting in alabama. at least two people are dead and one seriously injured. a local paper reporting some of the victims may have been members of the auburn university football team. though, police are not yet confirming that information at this time. we do know the shooting took place at a late night party at this apartment complex. the shooter or shooters reportedly still on the loose this morning. >> all right. scary stuff, obviously. we'll keep you posted on the details as they come in to our
news room. we want to tell awe extreme weather alert, out west in colorado, dry conditions there, fueling a wildfire, went from minor to major in a matter of hours and fire officials say the flames is torched 8,000 acres and damaging buildings and forces several dozen evacuations and it's believed several people might be missing. >> severe storms creating widespread flooding across florida and alabama and talking about the tragedy there. in pensacola, florida. and major flooding leaving drivers stranded. you can see they're having to be rescued. town 30 inches of rain, over 13 inches on saturday alone. and over mobile, county, alabama, cars totally submerged there and numerous roads making it i am passable. and that's a big issue, you're driving through standing water and one of the biggest areas where people get injured. >> rick: you don't want to drive through standing water,
could wash away your car. and parking lots where the cars are completely submerged, the rain flooding the swamp areas and causing major problems. a remarkable thing, this is not from a tropical system, not from a hurricane or a tropical storm. continuing to fund up a lot of moisture here and heavy rainfall. pensacola, 13.13 inches of rain in one day, and mobile, 5.79. but those aren't necessarily the spots that got the most, a few isolated areas here, 15 to 18 inches of rain and unfortunately, the rain is still falling and the system slightly moving off towards the north, but as it does, it's doing so as a very slow pace. areas from new orleans may be seeing five inches of rain, pen cola, another five inches of rain and going to stretch across areas of north georgia and eventually into the carolinas, and eventually the northeast, a wet, soggy week ahead for a lot of the eastern
part of the country. immediately, concerns for flooding down here across the areas of the central gulf. you still see the moisture and it's going to continue to fall for much of the day and thursday before we get a break. and this area in the northeast, is exactly like yesterday. clouds and rain yesterday across areas of the northeastern, mostly across new york, you're going to see that again today and yesterday, having severe weather across areas of the northern rockies and that pulls off to the east and fires in colorado, yesterday did extreme fire danger for the cold front to move through and winds today less, and temperatures way down, but now bigger severe threat today across areas of northern oklahoma, all in towards parts of the far northern plains, guys. >> all right, rick, thanks so much. more news to get to. the rest of your headlines, flip the switch on flashlights and they don't light up, they blow up. three of these bombs exploded within the last month in phoenix, causing minor injuries to five people and raising fears of more serious
ones. police say they have no idea who was behind this. but believe they were made by the same person. and they respond to the billboard, pop up around the city, warning, residents about discarded flashlights and police are offering a $10,000 reward for tips that can lead to arrest. call your local authorities please. house speaker john boehner at the correspondent's dinner after president obama's latest gaff on the economy. >> good evening, everyone, i hope all of you are fine. i'm fine just like the president says. i have some of you-- >> and ten insult your audience, a good comic rule. >> alisyn: boehner' line coming after president obama left the country scratching its head friday, saying the
private sector was doing fine. critics says it shows the president is outs of touch and the president later tried to clarify, it's not doing okay. >> dave: that was one part of a tough week for the president the private sector comments and romney outraising the president, rnc. and bill clinton indications where he got off message a number of time and then the leak controversy. >> clayton: don't forget cory booker, dead to us, after he slammed them for the nauseous comments about the leak. >> alisyn: bain. >> about bain capital and other things and now we're' hearing from some other republicans who are worried the latest move by the attorney general, appointing two u.s. attorneys could be politicized because there hasn't been a choice to appoint a special prosecutor where this would be outside of the administration. here is representative lamar smith on fox news yesterday. >> this ad is so political
sized it makes you wonder if the individuals aren't going to be pushed to delay the report, but we can't take the president's word for it, so we have to have an investigation. >> alisyn: and the leaks cropped up in the new york times, associated press, classified top secret national security information. so, eric holder appointed u.s. attorneys and republicans think they will now be beholden to the department of justice. la lanny davis, he was on huckabee and talks about leaks in every single administration. in fact, he was the source of some. >> it's not a partisan issue, democrats and republicans are patriots and this information endangering live sources and methods is very serious, but it's not a defense, but it's a fact that everybody does it and nobody should do it, but when you use the expression,
administration official, governor, i know, having used that expression to camouflage myself as a leaker, when i was doing political placements for stories that i wanted to be sure were published before there were nationally televised hearings about the campaign finance allegations i would call myself an administration official or senior official. and these are spread throughout the government. >> clayton: in the past it's been about politics, we're putting this person up for an appointment and want this story out ahead of time. >> dave: the spin out. >> clayton: the spin out ahead of time and get to the story. this is about people's lives and in many situations has to do with national security. lt. colonel tony schaeffer on our show yesterday saying it isn't just about politics, this is serious stuff. listen. >> this goes at least to the national security level and we're talking about senior officials. and i recent the general, we
need more polygraphs. these aren't coming from line intelligence officers or former operatives like me, these are from people who are leaking for political benefit. let me be very, very clear here. people have died. they may not be american people, but al-qaeda, once the information was leaked how the underwear bomber was discovered, they purged their ranks. by doing that, dave. we've now left ourselves open in ways we have not been open since 9/11. let me be clear here, people have died here. >> dave: it's one thing to leak details to approve your reelection chance, something else when you take it to that level when you risk your war on terror and put lives on the line. >> alisyn: we were alluding to the democrats, frankly, who can have come out and said they're uncomfortable with a line of attack on bain, mitt romney's private equity company. they're not comfortable with that, that's one of the engines that keeps the economy going. >> a long list, cory booker, bill clinton, ed rendell,
steven rattner, on and 0. >> however, the administration, it seems is still going to continue along that line of the attack, including the super pac, that supports president obama. >> priorities, usa. i love the names, a lot of people who used to work for the obama administration. bill burke, you'll remember, was the deputy white house press secretary. he left, headed back 2011 to start priorities, usa, the super pac and they spent 7 million on the ads. and now they've conducted a focus group and polling information that basically says, hey, these bain ads are working and they're working well, because it hits at a core issue that middle class voters care about. and they he see bayne capital as being representative of keeping the middle class down, that's what he says zoo. >> dave: here is what he says, quote, while criticism of romney's business record may not resonate with elites, it's resonating with the voters who decide the election. throughout the race, mitt
romney made the private sectors jobs experience defining qualifications for the presidency without explaining how his team as a corporate ceo prepares him to represent all americans or create jobs. there was a poll out, a key battle ground poll out that says that 47% of people feel private equities hurts workers and in some capacity could you argue it does hurt some workers, but it's hard to argue that it dopt overall help the engine of the the economy if you really know what private equity does. >> alisyn: it's interesting, we had a former colleague on he worked at bain and an insight into what romney was like as a lead they are and whether or not they were just corporate raiders bent on getting profits. >> it's laughable. if i'd gone into an investment of credit committee meeting and said here is what we're going to do, strip costs and sell the company in a matter of years, i would have been
laughed out of the room. business is so much more complex and the steps we had to take to make the company competitive and grow it faster, took many more years. the idea it's short-term is almost laughable and mitt was almost always exclusively focused on the long-term. and the short-term would take care of itself. and mitt is not a career politician, and i've seen him around the table trying to solve difficult problems. >> clayton: the attacks looks like they're going to continue at least with the super pacs, if their polling is correct. seems to be working. >> alisyn: coming up an interesting debate. attorney general eric holder says the voter i.d. laws can be discriminatory and scare voters away like that in florida, using as an illustration. is that right? we have angela mcglowan and
ladies, come in. >> dave: congress has a message for the tsa. if you know, let them through. >> alisyn: people, you know i'm not-- >> but is skipping beyonce a patdown is answer to the security woes? we report, you decide. ♪ [ male announcer ] what's in your energy drink? ♪ wer surge, let it blow your mind.

american problem. women are negatively impacted, poor and physically disabled and a broad swath. >> alisyn: what, don't have i.d.'s. >> we change our names and change our i.d.'s and more and more americans are turning to public transportation, why? because of the economic down turn, when you don't, like me, have a license, you know, when you don't use a car, you don't have a license and on and on and i'm not trying to baby people. >> i understand that, but-- in south carolina, with the south carolina law, where eric holder says it is discriminatory, one third of the registered black voters don't have a driver's license, also, you can show military i.d., a state i.d., or you can show up on election day, with an affidavit, saying, i am who i am, and you can vote. so, i believe that folks are politicizing this issue, when you have opponents of voter i.d. saying we're going to jim crowe. >> jim crowe is not something to run away from, we need to learn from it. fact is voter fraud has been
overblown and don't need to politicize that. the fact in 2004 in wisconsin we had 3 million votes cast, 7 instances of voter fraud. in 2008 in florida, 8 million votes cast, 16 instances of voter fraud. it's a solution problem-- >> and even shelby steele said that with eric holder saying it's discriminatory, one third of blacks don't have a driver's license. too stupid to get a state i.d. and people should be insulted. >> and this is not about stupidity, we cannot bring jim crowe into the discussion, this is part of the community and right bye concerned about it. african-americans shouldn't just be concerned about jim crowe, women should be concerned about it, what happens to one person can happen to anybody. >> i think that we're losing foe he cuss on the point that voting is a sacred right or privilege in america and we should be able to show a voter

emotions? >> mixed emotions, could not believe that they were out there still, or the seriousness of where he was. it almost put you on the battlefield with him. >> alisyn: and we have an example, actually of one of the letters, you're right. he really wrote in very vivid terms. here is one. we took lots of casualties, it's been trying days for me and my men. we dragged more bodies of dead and wounded than i could ever want to forget. what did you think, martha when you read those words? >> well, i said it kind of put you there in the middle with him and hard to grasp, but it was very emotional. and you just wanted to be there to try to help him. >> alisyn: and as we mentioned, that it was your ex-husband, sergeant steve flaherty who wrote the letters, how difficult for you being the one who gets to read the painful emotions and it
wasn't steve's mom or steve's dad that got to read the letters. >> well, i was actually steve's sister-in-law, not his-- >> excuse me. >> wife, that's okay. and reading the letters, just brought back memories of ste steve. like i said, it put you in the middle of the battlefield with him. and we knew he was in serious trouble because all war is very bad, but we did not know the, the real seriousness and danger that he was in, because he protected us from that kind of thing. i have a letter here that he wrote to his mother in december before he was killed, and the kind of things he would tell us is that in this one it was a christmas card, he said it's not going to be a very good christmas and later he said i need all the support
and encouragement i can get. this will have to be your christmas present until next year and that's about the extent of what he told us that he was doing. that, i just need support and encouragement and not very good, but he never gave us descriptive stuff like in the letters that we don't have yet. >> alisyn: right. some of these letters he says things like grenade launchers and machine guns, shredded and i felt a bullet zip past me never been that scared before in my life. and these really do bring it all home. just 22 years old when he died. >> right. >> alisyn: i know that you feel strongly about sharing all of these letters with your grandkids so that they know the sacrifice that he made. >> yes, yes, i do. i have one grandson, who is 22 and i can't imagine him being on the battlefield going through what steve went through, but my grandchildren know their uncle steve. they were born years after he was killed in vietnam, but

continuing to fall here, one big bright side to this and it's worth mentioning, you see all of this area dealing with drought and the worst of it here into alabama and georgia and now take at that look at rain that's going to fall the next day to two days and that's going to be falling across the areas of alabama and georgia, so, that's good news and it's going to help with the drought going on there. in fact, in some cases we're probably going to see the drought improve dramatically. here you go, you see that rain, areas of the central gulf. that's going to continue running out of time here, guys, more coming up at the bottom of the hour. >> alisyn: thanks so much. rick. the rest of your headlines, a scary moment for passengers on a u.s. airways flight from charlotte to los angeles as a man tries to bum rush the cockpit. witnesses say he flew into a rage after flight attendants refuse today serve him alcohol. apparently because he was too drunk already. that's when he ran towards the cockpit carrying a lighter and screaming out loud-- i thought the lighters were banned. and a female flight attendant and passengers subdued him until the plane landed and the

attack ads rolled out by the obama super pacs the last few weeks, they've met with criticism. cory booker on meet the press saying they were making him nauseous and bill clinton and ed rendell saying they didn't like them. however, turps out we may see more of them. >> alisyn: the super pacs that support president obama. and bill burke, used to be in the white house, now runs the super pac and believes they resonate. here is his quote. while business and romney records may not resonate with elites, but it is clearly resonating with the actual voters who will decide the this election, throughout this race, mitt romney has made his supposed private sector job creation experience the defining qualification for the presidency without explaining how his time as a corporate buyout ceo prepares him to represent all americans for create jobs. and how is what he did at bain
applicable to being president. you can argue his being governor of massachusetts and big bureaucracy and can't make things turn on a dime and dealing with entitlements, that's more relevant. so it's time for mitt romney, they would say, to explain how bain makes you president. >> wouldn't you argue what he did at bain was somewhat similar to what scott walker did with the state of wisconsin. >> alisyn: making hard decision joost making hard decisions, cuts and sacrifices and even though they're painful and in the end cut the budget shortfall and turn it into a splus in 2013. if he can thread that needle and to your point maybe he hasn't yet. if he can thread that needle may turn it into a positive. you've got ed rendell, bill clinton. >> democrats. >> dave: and duval patrick, who talks about brightly and great things in bain capital. >> clayton: and he patrick, says his time as governor was
not-- >> and in terms of what mitt romney did at bain. it's interesting to talk with former colleagues we did yesterday on "fox & friends," whether they were corporate raiders and tried to get rid of at any cost, little businesses. >> and endowing them with debt. >> alisyn: and here is what his colleague at bain said about that. >> if i'd gone to an investment credit committee meeting and way we're going to strip costs and this company in a matter of years. i would have been laughed out of the room. so much more complex. the steps to take to grow the company faster, the yid that it's short-term is almost laughable and i can tell you that mitt was almost exclusively focused on the long-term. felt what ne did in the long run, the short run, mitt wasn't a career politician and
wasn't as practiced as some are. i saw him around the table and trying to solve difficult problems. >> and bain though in massachusetts, i think the question a lot of liberals and democrats were asking, what's the positive that obama can sell at this point. what is the record that he will begin to run on at some point and the positive vision, instead of the negatives. >> and that's the-- >> supposed to be friday. >> you guys had that segment talking about hollywood earlier and hoping that the hollywood celebrities and hoping that the influences can help repackage the obama white house and sell it again for a second time. and let's talk about this. let's go out to coney island. the rollercoaster. >> alisyn: hotdogs. >> clayton: and a school out there, causing controversy, made the front page of the new york post for getting rid of. >> dave: stars and swipes. >> clayton: getting rid of god bless the usa, a lee greenwood song in favor of another song.
>> alisyn: you know this, it's anthem and playing a lot on the show, a beautiful song and the kindergarteners at the public school supposed to singing it upon their graduation from kindergarten, but the principal felt that it was too poe he lahrizing and would actually leave people feeling excluded who are not-- she said it excludes some cultures, even though this is a big immigrant school, immigrants from all over the world who say they are proud to be american. they do see it as inclusive of their new culture. >> dave: parents from pakistan, mexico, ecuador says it's a prideful moment for them when they did hear the song and again, quoting the principal, some close to her, gretta hawkins say we don't want to offend other cultures, but the department of education supports this decision and actually saying that the lyrics are not age appropriate. why is that so interesting? because what is age appropriate, what gets to stay in this commencement ceremony,
justin bieber, baby. >> clayton: that's being replaced. ♪ baby, baby, oh >> replacing that with "baby", justin bieber, saying it's more age appropriate. i'm not going to stop it. i want it stuck in your head all day ♪ baby, baby, no . >> clayton:. the lyric, girl are we an item, just quit playing, those are more appropriate for five year olds. >> clayton: will you be mine. >> dave: i'll buy you anything, buy you any ring. >> clayton: that's appropriate for kindergarteners. >> dave: not going to lie my six-year-old loves the song, but is it more age appropriate. >> alisyn: forget age appropriate for a second. just the message. that's more important. the kindergarteners, less god bless america, god bless the usa. proud to be an american. >> clayton: this principal has a long track record of doing some offensive things in the school district and this adds to the laundry list.

>> welcome back, everybody, as we've been reporting, two prominent republicans are pushing for an outside special council to probe allegedly leaks of classified national secures information and rejecting eric holder's appointment of appointments. >> clayton: a lot of probing going on. chris wallace to talk about this. nice to see you this morning. >> good morning. >> clayton: what's the impact? this was released on a friday night and hearing lamar smith saying on fox news, look, this could be political and pushed back the election. any chance that's going to happen? >> well, these investigations, the chance of this investigation will be settled by the election is probably pretty slim. you know, you think of the valerie plame case, these things take months if not years. having said it, it's a very serious matter. i mean, when you look the at
the series of national security leaks in the war on terror over the course of the last six months, it's quite extraordinary. there's the fact that the president personally approves the kill list of drone strikes, we didn't use to admit there were drones at that went up. maybe even more damaging, that the u.s. and israel were in fact behind the computer virus that was use today sabotage iran's nuclear program. the fact that we had a double agent who penetrated al-qaeda in yemen. >> dave: chris you brought up-- >> things we shouldn't tell our enemy. you brought up the valerie plame case, but then attorney john ashcroft appointed pa special prosecutor outside of the realm of politics and that's where the criticism is perhaps on the obama administration here? >> oh, yeah, i think there's going to be a battle whether or not there should ab independent counsel. you were asking do i think it
will be settled before the election, i think it's unlikely. i think a battle the next few weeks certainly if not months, whether or not you should have the justice department investigating itself given the fact there have been some suggestions possibly some of the leaks have come from the justice department itself. i certainly think the the republicans are not going to be satisfied. the key, if i had to say one key member of congress, it would be the democratic chair of the senate intelligence committee, senator diane feinstein. if-- she was part of the big news conference on thursday where they said all the top people in intel, both in the senate and house said this is an outrage that this number of leaks. she didn't call for a special counsel yet some of her counterparts did. if she does, i think the president's hand will be forced on this. >> alisyn: chris, i want your thoughts on something this governor, new jersey chris christie said at cpac in chicago. political action conference. he interpreted something that the president had said as going after governors, where the president said the private
sector is fine. where we have problems is at the state and local level. chris christie sort of personalized that and said how dare he blame us. let's listen. >> it is an outrage to have the president of the united states stand up and say to hard working governors, republicans and democrats around this country, that state and local government hiring is moving in the wrong direction, and we're to blame because the economy's not growing. >> alisyn: now, in fairness, the president said that local -- that governors are not getting the amount of federalsy stance they used to from the federal government. does chris christie have a point? >> yeah, the main reason that gorgeo governors to have to cut back the economy is so lousy and states getting tax revenue is down. you know, people like christy, republican conservative governors saying we don't want
bigger government and federal aid, we want a robust economy and if we had that. we wouldn't have to cut back. just watching him, i don't know if mitt romney will choose him. you think wouldn't it be fun to have him as the running mate taking the case to the obama administration, pretty entertaining. >> dave: i think that's the guy, i think he goes with that and you have on mitch daniels, a far different type of speaker, but probably makes a similar case and similar case when it comes to the win of governor scott walker in wisconsin and certainly discuss that today on the show? >> we'll be talking with mitch daniels and two top leaders whether voters sent a message in wisconsin this week. >> alisyn: we'll be watching. check your local listings for fox news sunday. thanks, chris. >> thanks, guys. coming up on the show, one woman risked her life savings to recreate urban education. >> alisyn: plus, so much for being a kid. we'll tell you where sidewalk

people were shot and killed on the scene. and he says that they were all here just having a really good time and that this has caught everybody by surprise. we have been watching as people have been coming and going out of this apartment complex and you can just see the sadness in everyone's face, and we're waiting for a press conference in a few hours with the very latest. back to you in new york. >> clayton: near auburn university. keep it here at "fox & friends" with more. toss over to ali and dave. >> alisyn: thanks. back in 2001, debra had lost her husband and single mom forced to raise her three kids on her own. amazingly enough, a perfect time to quit her day job and devote herself to reinventing public education. >> she opened a charter school, risking her life savings proving that all children could get a good education. and today they've grown from one school to five and some of the best schools in the city. >> joining us now is the author of "born to rise" and
founder and ceo of harlem village academy, great to have you here. >> thank you, it's great to be here. >> so you're quite industrious and tackled a huge problem. what did you see wrong that you thought needed fixing. >> today public education is at a crossroads. our secretary of education ar any duncan said in the next ten years one third of the teaching profession is going to retire and in harlem, we had abysmal failure rates, something like more than 80% of children were not on level in reading and math. and it was just unconscionable. we have to do something about it. >> dave: and somehow you've turned this into a number one ranking in 2010 for 8th grade math, reading, scored 100% proficient in 8th grade math and go on and on and turned it from one school to five. what about your model works that's not working in the similar public education model? >> right, it's all about elevating the teaching
profession and a lot of people have been talking about that over the last couple of years, the question, how do you actually do that? what does that actually mean. what we've found is that treating teachers like professionals means that you give them enormous amount of freedom. and meaning that they have the autonomy to make decisions about the curriculum. and the reading materials in their class and the teaching methods and in exchange for at that autonomy, we're going to hold you accountable for the teachers as results. and find that the most smartest and passionate driven people love that trade off and they're on fire in the classroom because of it. >> and your teachers in the union? >> no. >> alisyn: therefore you can get rid of teachers who are not making the grade. >> you know, that sounds a little harsh, but the reality is that once in a while there is someone, you make a hiring mistake, you do your best, you try to coach them. it's still not working out. you must have the ability to say, i'm sorry, it's not working out.
you do it with compassion, you make sure the person's taken care of, but putting the needs of children first is critical and that means if a teacher is not working out, you must have the authority as the school leader to make that change. >> dave: it's clearly working in harlem and how does this model expand across the country? >> what i've been talking about the last couple of years we need to charterize the country. the 20th anniversary of charter school law is this month and the question is, what does the charter school movement mean, just about serving 1 million students that the charter schools currently serve? no, it's about transforming the entire public education system. and what that means is that all schools need two things, one, the right to hold teachers accountable and two, the ability to give those teachers the respect and autonomy that they deserve as professionals. and by the way, the other thing the charter movement means is choice for parents. >> sounds like it could work
nationally, and it certainly has worked at your schools. debra, you've written "born for run", how you do it, a story of teachers reaching their highest potential, thanks for coming in. >> this model may work in all sorts of industries, empowering people and you should be very proud of what you've done. >> thank you. >> remember this girl, she was one of president obama's biggest fans and even posting this video about it. now she's apparently having a change of heart, what she's saying four years later. ♪ does your business have the financial control it needs?

you don't have enough life experience, don't have life experience when you read the column they talk about drinking and partying same people refer to higher education a college experience and glorified alcoholism. the truth is i love life experiences as many as possible and i choose to skip the crappy ones and i can't imagine to possibly enjoy my life experiences more than sharing them with the person with whom i'll be sharing the rest of my life. and these people, clayton, the same people who made fun of me a year ago before i proposed to my wife, and wrote a column on abstinence. oh, you can't be abstinent before marriage and you have to live together and i wrote a column saying you shouldn't live with each other before marriage, you have to live with each other and test it out. we called that for hundreds of years, concubines. >> alisyn: and you seem to have a lot of thoughts on this, and let's look at miley cyrus and this is what prompted some of this reaction, and she's 19 years old and some people have said,
she's had a lot of life experience and way too young. think how much you change throughout your teens and 20's. is there some age that is too young for marriage? >> no. there's a moral bar that needs to be set. people don't like it, it sounds, are you judging somebody? yeah, i am making a judgment. when it comes to marriage i'm make ago in depth and harsh judgment because that's absolutely a life decision. we're told you need to discover yourself you need to grow by yourself. really, what are you doing, you're learning how to grow by yourself apart from one another, rather than how to grow up with your wife or husband, and the books i read, faith dictates values and be careful, the woman of my youth. why would i want to marry someone after i've learned to live alone harder for us to merge our lives. if we decided to take as much time and energy teaching people how to be equipped for marriage and have real expectations for marriage and pre-marital counseling and
encouraging them to live a righteous life, sounds like a judgment, you bet it is, i think it had be better off that we focus on some arbitrary age what's appropriate for marriage and i know i've said things that might be offended. they can all the tweet me at s crowder i think i mumbled there. tweet me the at s crowder and tell me why i'm wrong. >> clayton: and how about if they make divorce illegal, happy about that. >> i don't know illegal should make it a painful process. and i'm going to write about the myth of the 50% divorce rate. >> alisyn: and who knew you were such a romantic. best we wishes to you and your lovely fiancee. >> clayton: coming up on the show, a wildfire raging out of control in colorado this morning and many people missing as evacuations are underway. >> alisyn: plus a six-year-old football fan showing his

rain, but this is way too much, last time they saw that much rain, 1934. to put it into perspective. the fires, yesterday, all of the area was in pink and fire danger and today is less, hover the one fire sparked in larimer county, colorado, 15 miles west of fort collins, 8,000 acres and destroyed structures and they say that was yesterday, and there was significant growth on the fire during the overnight hours with the winds. today, still at the danger, front moved through and windy conditions, not as hot but we'll deal with today, another very rough day for the fire. the other story all of the flooding across areas of the south. 13.13 inches of rain falling in one day in pensacola 18 inches of rain and more is unfortunately continuing to fall there, today, tomorrow, the next 3-4 days there will be rain and today the worst of it. and we you a heavy rain in new
orleans, two inches expected and pensacola, 5 inches and it is spreading across areas of georgia, the good part, where the significant drought is. but this morning the rain heavy at times across this same area. if there has been vieding of the water we might see it go up briefly --ceding and, might see it go up again. >> alisyn: flashlights that don't light up, they blow up. three bombs exploded within the last month in phoenix. causing minor injuries to five people and raising fears of more serious ones. police say they have no idea who is behind these and believe they were made by the same person and in response the billboards popped up around the city, warning residents about discarded flashlights and police offering a $10,000 reward for tips that lead to any arrests. spain is asking for help, announcing the deal after calls

his office it makes you wonder if these individuals aren't going to be, you know, first to delay the report until after the election, whatever it might be but we can't take the president's word for it. that is why we have the investigation. >> clayton: chris wallace a short time ago, said, absolutely, remember how long the valerie plame investigation took, years, a long time and it could take well beyond the election. >> alisyn: but the leading republicans are afraid that these u.s. attorneys, eric holder has appointed, will be too beholden to the department of justice to actually make some sort of impartial, accurate finding. that is what they are worried about and why they are calling for the special prosecutor as in the valerie plame case and lanny davis, in the clinton white house, an advisory, talked about the leaks and, said every administration has them and in fact he was the source of some, he says. >> it is not a partisan issue. democrats and republicans are patriots. and, this information endangering lives, sources and methods, is very serious.
but it's not a defense, but it is a fact. that everybody does it. and, nobody should do it. but when you use the expression administration official, governor, i know having used the expression to camouflage myself as a leaker. when i was doing political placements for stories that i wanted to be sure we're published before they were nationally televised hearings about the campaign finance allegation. i would call myself an administration official. or a or osenior official withou reference to the white house. >> dave: no question there are leaks in every administration but to this extent, none in terms of national security details that, for the most part, critic say, helped the president's re-election chances but some including lieutenant colonel tony schaeffer take it to a different level and says it actually puts lives on the line and costs lives. listen: >> this goes at least to the
national security level. and, we're talking about senior officials and resent general clapper says we need more polly graphs. they aren't coming from people like me, they are coming from people leaking it for political benefit. let me be clear here. people have died and they may not be american people, but al qaeda when the information was leaked how the underwear bomber was discovered, they purged their ranks and by doing that we have left ourselves open in ways we have not been open since before 9/11 and let me be clear. people have died here. >> clayton: much more on that investigation in the weeks ahead. catch up fox news sunday, this morning, chris wallace will have interesting interviews on that issue. plus this, the tsa, every weekend we talk about a new controversy with the tsa and the way in which their screening procedures let people through or done too much and now the house of representatives with i don't know a head-scratching idea, how
to improve security flow at the airport. >> alisyn: head scratching or is it genius? and here it is: it is that celebrities, really recognizable people, not just celebrities, big-time politicians, why should they have to go through the security clearance and be patted down and be pulled aside? >> clayton: if everyone recognizes them. >> alisyn: for instance they use the example of donald rumsfeld, you may recall, the picture of it, then secretary of defense -- former secretary of defense, donald rumsfeld, being patted down at the airport. well, he's pretty recognizable and henry kissinger has been pulled over and he's recognizable and, in fact, it was congressman rogers, who cited a different celebrity, who he thought should not be patted down. let's listen: >> there are certain people that are so well-known that you just have to use common sense, because, if you star patting them down, people sail they, they are patting down beyonce. she is not going to blow a plane
up. >> dave: i agree. and common sense says, yes. let them through, they will not pose a threat to our country but if i'm in line with my three kids, stressed out, trying to get the stroller through and been there an hour and the celebrity walks on through, i'm furious. >> clayton: i'll be angry. >> dave: common sense does not apply when i'm in the line, angry. >> clayton: and it is the tsa's fault, making a special treatment. >> alisyn: and should they get special treatment? and if you say yes, how far down does it go. everybody is recognizable somewhere, the mayor of peoria. >> dave: you are more famous than that. >> clayton: with all due respect to the house of representatives, i think that is -- look, this is not -- one of -- a little small problem or issue here. and how many times are celebrities traveling and that is really going to
dramatically... >> dave: twhey fly their own private jets. >> dave: i'm sure beyonce doesn't travel commercial. >> clayton: if i see her on my flight -- i'll help america by patting down beyonce. >> dave: should celebrities get a quick pass? twitter or the e-mail. >> clayton: i'm sure i'll be arrested. >> you ought to be. >> clayton: president obama claiming his economic recovery has been stronger than president bush's. is it a fair comparison? fun with numbers. we'll ask former economic advisor to president reagan, next. >> alisyn: plus one says god bless the u.s.a. is too offensive for students to sing, somehow justin bieber is okay to sing. ♪ ♪ i'll gladly stand up next to you ♪ ♪ and defend her... wake up!

>> dave: welcome back, everybody, president obama claiming his economic recovery has been stronger than president bush's on friday. >> president barack obama: after losing jobs for 25 months in a row, our businesses have now created jobs for 27 months in a row. 4.3 million new jobs in all. the fact is, job growth in this recovery has been stronger than in the one following the last recession, a decade ago. >> dave: but is that a good comparison? here to weigh in is former economic advisor to president reagan, art laffer. good to see you, art. >> good to see you, dave, how are you? >> dave: i'm good. is it a good recession, the last recession lasted 8 months long
an peak unemployment, 6.3%, apples and oranges. >> it is totally appropriate, this is the single worst recovery in the history of the u.s. after one of the worst declines ever. the recovery should be much, much faster, when we were in office in 1980, early '80s we had a very sharp decline as well, up until '82 and the boom following was huge and this is not even enough to keep track of population growth, this single worst recovery and i don't know why -- afternoon else knows it and i don't know why president obama doesn't. >> dave: wouldn't the best comparison be to the recovery you are referring to under president reagan. >> that was terrific. we had a huge bounce back from a very sharp decline after james carter, traying our tax cuts and our boom was huge and this boom, there is none and if we continue like this, people will be run down so no one is left working. it is tragic. >> dave: obviously our debt could prevent a further recovery certainly, what people are talking about, tax-mageddon
looming in the new year. how will it affect our country's ability to recover. >> you look at the tax rate increases all the bush era tax cuts are set to expire and all the additional obamacare tax increases that will take place. you have a huge amount of tax increases occurring, and that will clearly destroy the economy. you cannot tax an economy into prosperity, dave. it just doesn't happen. poor people don't spend themselves into wealth. >> dave: clearly you are on the side of bill clinton, at least temporarily extending the tax breaks. >> totally. >> dave: what do they need to be paired with to get the engine moving? >> well, dave i want to tell you, i voted for clinton twice when he ran for president. i thought he was a great president and i think he's completely right on these issues and it embarrasses me the democrats will not let him hold a different view about anything. they require party line moving. clinton's correct. we should extend the tax cuts and he's correct, cut government spending the way he did in his
eight years in office. he cut spending by more than the next four best presidents combined. and this guy has gone crazy on spending and so did "w" and comparing everything with him is inappropriate, he wasn't a good president in his last two years, nor is obama in his first three years. >> dave: did you say you voted for clinton twice. >> i sure did. i voted for democrats as much as republicans, i'm a kennedy democrat from the '60s, a reagan republican in the '80s and a bill clinton democrat when he ran for office. i believe in policies, not parties. and when these party people get together and demand bill lyclinn detract his statements, can't they allow any diversity in their own party? outrageous, that is what causes gridlock. >> dave: art laffer, former economic advisor to president
reagan. a surprising statement from the governor of mississippi who says prayers should be allowed in all schools. father jonathan morris here to react. why it is so surprising, next and we have heard the anger from capitol hill, over eric holder stonewalling during the fast and furious hearing, but how do friends and family members of brian terry feel about this? well hear from one of them coming up. [ kimi ] atti and i had always called oregon home. until i got a job in the big apple. adjusting to city life was hard for me.
and becoming a fulltime indoor cat wasn't easy for atti. but we had each other and he had purina cat chow indoor. he absolutely loved it. and i knew he was getting everything he needed to stay healthy indoors. and after a couple of weeks, i knew we were finally home! [ female announcer ] purina cat chow indoor. always there for you.
>> alisyn: breaking news for you now. we have been following this story, out of alabama, reports say at least three people are now dead. after a late-night shooting at an apartment complex near auburn university. we have reporters live at the scene with the latest. do you know any more about the victims? >> reporter: we are hearing
there is a possibility that at least one of the victims is an auburn football player and we do know from a witness we spoke to who is actually at the school party where the shooting took place, he says they were hanging out with a number of football players and they were here hanging out by the pool, when they say in an instant everything changed. people, two guys started arguing over a female, that is when the shots were fired and, one witness saw three people get shot and again we are waiting to hear from police, a couple more hours before they will have time, they say to come out and talk to us, but the police chief has confirmed multiple people are shot here, at this complex and you can see behind me, the scene is still here, police have been out here for several hours, they are not letting people in or out of the apartment complex, and it is still developing and again we'll have the very latest, as soon as we can sit down with the police chief, back to you in new york. >> alisyn: thank you so much for that live report. >> clayton: mississippi's governor raised eyebrows with
his comments about nondenominational school prayer and he said, quote, at a moment of enlightenment in the future the federal government will say, not a bad thing for children to hear prayer in school. joining us now to weigh in on this is fox news religion contributor father jonathan morris. you don't hear that said often by politicians. >> you know, he's on the right track, as history is a good teacher. why? because first of all, prayer was very prevalent in schools, throughout the 18, 19, and first half of the 20th century and there were two cases that went all the way to the supreme court, engels and abbington and they say there should be no official prayer, state sponsored prayer everybody has to pray and the second court case went further and said, in a public school, there shouldn't be bible readings, for example or other prayers that are required by all the students. but, then, in the '90s we had two other cases that bring about a little bit of an advancement
towards what we saw before, prayer in school, by having prayers allowed for example at commencement speeches, right? for example, or before a high school football game. right? so we see what was very prevalent and perhaps a little bit of an establishment of religion in the first half of the 20th century, and then we went to the extreme of saying, hey, listen, prayer, none of that and now it is coming back a bit and it should be if anything an expression of the region, if there is great faith in the region allow people to pray as they want. >> alisyn: interesting, the governor said it is the opposite of what has been happening, we can't decide which religion so make it none. we will not have a christmas tree or menorah at hanukkah and, he says let all comers come. >> and that is very much in line with the other supreme court decisions about religion, for example, in front of a courthouse, they are not saying it is bad to have creches.
but if there are members of another religion who would like a public expression of their faith, let that be present, too. so i think maybe we are getting more sensible. and, really being more constitutional. no establishment of religion but no law that prohibits the free exercise of religion. maybe a good sign on a happy sunday morning. >> clayton: well said, father jonathan morris, great to see you. coming up on the show, the pc police at it again, god bless the u.s.a. and it was ruled too offensive for five-year-olds but justin bieber's song, baby is okay. we are swapping them out. >> dave: check out this beautiful car, not just here for looks. up next, the pace car with potentially life-saving tips as we hit the road to summer. ♪
♪ and i won't forget the men who died ♪ ♪ who gave that right to me ♪ and i gladly stand up ♪ next to you and defend her ♪ god bless the u.s.a... [sirens sounding]. >> alisyn: police are coming to arrest him! >> clayton: i didn't see that one coming, pc police. is that song offensive? in some way? well, a high school principal out there on coney island thinks, 5th greaters -- five-year-olds can't handle it. >> dave: an elementary school principal says this song has to be pulled out of the commencement ceremony because it offends other cultures. well, the school has a lot of
immigrants from all over the world including mexico and ecuador and pakistan and many of those parents and their children found that song a prideful moment for them, because, they are proud of the flag, they are proud of what the country gave them the opportunity to do. >> alisyn: the school principal decided a lee greenwood song, god bless the u.s.a., cannot be sung at the commencement and instead they'll rising justin bieber's "baby." and the lyrics are not age appropriate for god bless the u.s.a. >> clayton: but baby, baby, baby is. >> alisyn: i have the lyrics, to baby, baby, baby. >> clayton: do it. >> alisyn: john -- >> alisyn: jon stewart, you are welcome. here we go. she had me going crazy, oh, i was star struck, she woke me up daily, don't need no starbucks.
>> clayton: baby, baby, baby, oh. >> dave: they won't sing the part that is rapped. they'll just... >> alisyn: how do you know. >> dave: it's on my iphone, kids sing it and take out the ludicrous version. and, it is -- >> i'll buy you anything, i'll buy you any ring. >> dave: that part will be sung. >> clayton: the idea though -- >> we are -- this is for talk soup. >> alisyn: what is inappropriate about god bless the u.s.a., a rousing, beautiful, stirring song, as we said, the parents in this school all -- not all, but most appreciate it and love and the principal decided... >> dave: do you have more dramatic reading? >> alisyn: baby, baby, baby, oh. >> clayton: you love me, you care, shout when i'll be there,
you are my love -- >> alisyn: my favorite part is, are we an item? girl, quit playing, we're just friends, what are you saying? >> clayton: you know it is bad when chris yells at us. well... you know what, it will be stuck in his head the rest of the day. congratulations. >> dave: all right. >> alisyn: let's get to the headlines, more news to tell you about now, an airline passenger facing possible criminal charges, after become-rushing the cockpit on a u.s. airways flight from charlotte to los angeles. the man flew into a rage after flight attendants refused to serve him alcohol apparently because he was too drunk and he ran towards the cockpit carrying a lighter and scream and, flight attendants and passengers subdued him, his identity not released at this time. the former egyptian president, hosni mubarak is in critical condition inside a prison hospital in cairo, an among nus
official saying she slihe slips out of consciousness, days after being handed a life sentence with killing mass protesters in his country. he's 84 years old. i guess they got an a-plus, high school graduates in nevada having to give back their diplomas because the word "graduation" was spelled with too any as and they admitted their mistake and are redoing them and we told you of a similar story, 8,000 students in maryland received their diplomas with one over the "r" missing in the word, program and a treat for world war ii veterans from central florida. 26 got to take place in an honor flight to washington, d.c. visiting landmarks like the world war ii memorial and arlington national cemetery. they got a highero's welcome up returning to the airport and, frank alphonzo was blown away by
the experience. >> it was the most awesome thing that happened in my life but i feel guilty, because i cannot compete with the rest of the group. the heros i was with today, i cannot polish their shoes. >> alisyn: wow. how old was frank when he fought? this is the first time veterans from florida participated in the honor flight program and can't wait to organize another one. those are your headlines. >> dave: rick reichmuth has a check of weather across the country. those fires, any chance, colorado, the conditions favoring them, slowing down or no. >> rick: tomorrow it gets a little better. today, not so good. look at the picture, sent from loveland, colorado on twitter. showing the fire there. this is just kind of a little bit to the west of loveland, loveland and fort collins, there. look at the picture sent in, dave, it will mean something to you, if you are from colorado. those are homes right there, the
northwest of loveland and the fire started 6:00 yesterday morning, 24 hours in. 8,000 acres burned as of yesterday and now, it is likely by this morning, will be larger, they said significant growth overnight, it will be windy today, keep sending your pictures and maybe the flooding across areas of the south, rick reichmuth on twitter or on my facebook page and the flooding in the south, guys, another big story, will be with us for the next couple of days, you see the heavy rain, continuing to fall across these areas, that saw it yesterday. maybe another 5 to 7 inches and that will cause more problems there. all right, clayton, over to you. >> clayton: thank you so much, rick, well, this is national tire safety awareness week. i never knew there was a whole week defeated to it but you need to pay attention to it. in honor of that we have sylvia, from michelin motor sports and brought along my ride i'm going to be driving home in today, to demonstrate safety. >> absolutely. >> clayton: what is this. >> this is the corvette zr-1,
2013, 60th anniversary edition, the pace car at the indy 500 a couple weeks ago and we thought we'd bring you eye candy. >> clayton: a lot of people trying to lay claim to it. get security out here. >> they are. >> clayton: and what is interesting, people hitting the road and getting out there during unseasonal weather, storms and thunderstorms, coming out of nowhere, and, paying attention to your tires. >> yes, tire maintenance is so important, especially like you said, now that the summer months are coming up and, i wanted to give you two quick tips on easy tire maintenance. >> clayton: this is something honestly people ignore all the time. and you get caught up in things and don't pay attention to how much air you should put into your tires because it changes as the air gets hotter, right. >> it changes because you are using your tires. so, an easy thing to do is, once a month, give yourself a reminder to check tire pressure and tread depth. >> clayton: how do you do that. >> tire pressure is easy because the information is actually located in the car door of the
driver's side. so the manufacturer already tells you exactly what tire pressure you will need. let's check and you find the valve and everyone knows where it is. get yourself -- i have a michelin man, but get a tire gauge and, take the pressure of the tire and from there it gives you the reading and you know whether to adjust the pressure of the tire. whether you need to put more air in or take some out. >> clayton: head to the gas station and fill it up. >> and i have a penny. >> clayton: because this is interesting. to check the tread depth and maybe you need to buy new tires. >> exactly. the penny test and is easy to do. take a penny and put it upside-down and find the biggest groove in your tire and put abraham lincoln's head down and hold it there and if you see his head, it is time to change your tires, the tire has worn down. >> clayton: you should only see his neck. >> exactly. he's fine, you don't see his
head and there is enough tread. these are new power sport tires and those are two really quick things you can do once a month, every saturday, remind yourself to do them. >> clayton: sylvia, here from michelin motor sports, great tips and slow down in wet weather. and use a u.s. penny, dave and ali, make sure you don't have a canadian penny, it would throw everything off. >> alisyn: the queen. the queen! >> dave: yeah. >> clayton: that's my tip for you. >> alisyn: thanks, i'm not sure that that car would look good with a baby seat in it, clayton, as you are planning. >> dave: as eric holder faced another round of grilling on capitol hill over the botched fast and furious operations, family and friends of slain border agent brian terry are hoping for justice. we'll talk to one of them next. >> alisyn: barbecue is taking over the big apple and the chefs are sharing their secrets, a tip at how tennessee makes barbecue.

political ideology or race or any other characteristic or factor when it comes to fast and furious, you are sorely mistaken. >> alisyn: alana domino is a close friend of slain border agent brian terry, missing weapons from fast and furious were found at the scene of terry's murder. good morning. >> good morning. >> alisyn: your friend, brian was killed, we should remind people, back in december of 2010. you, i know followed all of these proceedings very closely, at the end of the 8th of appearance of attorney general air robbing holder in front of different committees, are you any closer to knowing who authorized this and what went wrong with fast and furious? >> we'd be closer to knowing who authorized it if he'd release the remainder of the documents he has given to the inspector general that was given, over 140,000 documents to conduct a thorough investigation. darrell issa has only been given
7600 documents, of which the 7600 have been redacted and we aren't any closer with him withholding information. >> dave: the exchange we heard between the congressman and the attorney general, refer to this being very political, hyper political, almost. do you feel that this has become a partisan investigation? >> i believe that the -- this is an election year, the democrats are making it more of a political issue, this is an american issue, we have two dead federal agents, brian terry was killed in the line of action, and, another officer was killed in the line of action and if we don't stand up for the people who serve our country, why we have the freedoms we have today, who will? and it shouldn't be based off of race or i'm republican or i'm a democrat. it is an american issue. it is your job, as an elected official, to fight for the people who served their country for justice. you have two families with no answers, the terry family deserves closure and they
deserve the truth. of how he was killed. eric holder holds the cards. withholding information, that is leadership? we have problems if that is leadership and that represents or country. >> you bring up brian's family, obviously, they want resolution. as would any family. do you know how they are feeling this week after watching the attorney general testify yet again but not seem to get to the bottom of anything? >> i can't speak for the family. they are currently under litigation. but i can tell you that any family would be completely distraught and frustrated with no answers after a year-and-a-half, brian was killed in december. it is a year-and-a-half and 8 months of asking attorney general holder, you know, can we have the remainder of the documents. who was responsible at the highest level? his responses are, i don't recall. i don't know. he knows. the inspector general has already conducted an investigation and he won't even
release the investigation of the inspector general. lanny brewer admitted fault yet he has not fired him. jason weinstein is on e-mails with james trusty, specifically stating fast and furious. your know, release public documents, how should we handle it with the media? the guilt is there and no one is fired. dennis burke resigned himself. attorney eric holder has not fired anyone. you know? so i do believe that, yeah, eric holder and the obama administration are definitely making it political because it is an election year by withholding information and that is not fair to the terry family to get answers they deserve and the justice brian terry deserves and honor. >> dave: and many including the congressman, we had on from texas want eric holder to resign, lana domino, thanks for being on and sharing insights, appreciate it. >> thank you. >> alisyn: coming up, big apple -- not the big apple. apple is getting ready to reveal
do you guys ride? well... no. sometimes, yeah. yes. well, if you know anybody else who also rides, send them here -- we got great coverage. it's not like bikers love their bikes more than life itself. i doubt anyone will even notice. leading the pack in motorcycle insurance. now, that's progressive. call or click today. aarrggh!

>> alisyn: we know a lot about barbecue but what makes tennessee barbecue different from others. >> it is all pork, we don't cook brisket. we do it at the restaurants and tennessee is known for pork and we like what we call western whole hog, a larger hog, 185 pounds and we are cooking it for the big apple barbecue block party. >> clayton: you have perfect pulled pork barbecued sandwiches. >> let me build it for you, first a raw shoulder. a rub, a lot of -- everybody has the secret rubs, don't ask, because i know, you know i can't tell you the answer. now, now, now... and what we do is we'll rub it down and we'd pat it through the meat and get it in there, really good and what happens is, it cooks over 20, 24 hours, and forms what we call the bark. >> alisyn: and you did this guy for 20 hours. >> for 22, as was this guy and the bark forms and it looks dark
but it's not burned, it is a very flavorful addition an aspect to our barbecue, so what we do is, i have gloves, because it is really hot to the touch. go ahead and pull this. >> clayton: pull it apart, delicious. >> get this meat out. get the bark on the sandwich. >> alisyn: we'll assemble these perfect sandwiches and come back and we'll sample them and give you guys some. >> dave: and talking slaw when we come back, thanks to pat martin from martin's barbecue joint in tennessee, we're back in two minutes. with the perfect sandwich. ♪ we were skipping stones and letting go ♪ [ female announcer ] nature valley granola bars, rich dark chocolate, toasted oats. perfect combinations of nature's delicious ingredients,
