3:01 am
graduation. >> ♪ i'm proud to be an american ♪ ♪ where at least i know i'm free ♪ >> but this fight is not over yet. the students refusing to have their singing voices silenced. we have this little boy singing for us. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> live from studio e, it's "fox & friends." live from rockefeller center, we've got that girl, alisyn camerota in today for gretch. >> referring to me. >> that girl. >> successful 70's series. >> that's right. >> i just have one quick observation. if we didn't have the studio crew to help us with the scramble, we'd be here until 9:15 in the morning. >> time limit on it?
3:02 am
i was a little worried about that. especially when all the letters turn over, we get it. >> when we were featuring chris there because you asked for chris to help you. >> because he's great at it. it was joel who helped you today. >> thank you, joel. thank you. >> you'll be handsomely rewarded. >> i digress. >> because they do a lot of puzzles behind the camera while they're waiting for us to come out here. >> or they're puzzled by the show as many are. >> that could be. >> great to be with you guys. let's get right to your headlines and tell you what's happening. we have a developing story right now out of afghanistan. an apparent insider attack leaving an american service member dead. nine others are hurt. their injuries are minor, we're told. the three gunmen who opened fire were wearing afghan police uniforms at the time. they are on the run at this hour, we'll keep you posted as you get more information. one day before the senate foreign relations committee was to set on its nomination, the pick for ambassador to iraq bowing out. he was withdrawing nomination amid concerns he engaged in improper conduct while working at the u.s. embassy in baghdad.
3:03 am
recently released e-mails showed him having racy conversations with a reporter while he was working on a security deal with the iraqi government. he was also married to another woman at the time. recently released jailhouse phone calls revealing new details about the man accused of killing trayvon martin. in one of them, we hear george zimmerman urging his wife to get a bulletproof vest because he feared for their safety. >> have you looked into -- >> >> the other calls detail how zimmerman instructed her to transfer money from bank accounts.
3:04 am
that could play a crucial role in his second bond hearing next week. give us a sports story, would you? >> all right. i'll do that, alisyn. many baseball fans dream for the day they catch a foul ball. a rays fan of tampa, he had it happen at the rays-marlins game but his own son dashing that dream. look at this. tampa bay's drew sutton fouling the ball off. check this out. the little boy takes the foul ball and throws it back! >> look at -- >> dad reacted and can't believe that the little boy just a little bit of an oops reaction. >> there you go! >> oh! >> what are you doing? >> that's a day i'll never forget. >> look at him. i'm not even trying for the next one. >> the boy is actually -- >> sorry, dad! i'm just a kid. >> meanwhile, in other news, turn over those operation fast & furious documents or face a contempt of congress vote tomorrow. congressman darrell issa giving that warning to attorney general eric holder as the two get ready
3:05 am
to meet face to face later today. >> kelly wright is live in washington with details. hey, kelly. >> ali, steve and brian, good morning to you as well. in a letter, attorney general eric holder writes he's offering a serious good faith proposal. holder addressed that letter to darrell issa, chairman of the house oversight and government reform committee. he hopes it will bring an amicable resolution writing "we expect that this extraordinary accommodation will fully address the remaining concerns that you and house leadership have identified in your written and oral communication to the department over the last few weeks." but late monday, congressman issa wrote back to the attorney general explaining his expectations writing only the delivery of documents outlined and offered by the department of justice last thursday to staff will be sufficient to justify postponement of wednesday's scheduled vote. a directed reference to a vote to hold holder in contempt. issa had been demanding to see documents on the controversial
3:06 am
bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms explosives anti-gunrunning operation known as fast & furious. he wants to know who prepared a now retracted letter from february 4, 2011, in which the justice department claimed the u.s. did not knowingly help smuggle guns to mexico including those later found at the murder scene of border patrol agent brian terry. >> here we are a year later, do the attorneys know anything more now about this program? who is responsible for it? who had been held accountable for it? has any of their questions about this been answered? >> meantime, some congressional republicans claim house speaker john boehner wants issa to drop the case because it can become an election year distraction that could hurt republicans at the polls. congressman elijah cummings, the top democrat on the oversight committee said he'd like to see a resolution that would include a contempt vote against eric
3:07 am
holder. >> watch what happens down in d.c. >> i was surprised by this. the president on friday makes a sensationalistic announcement, that if you're one born here, you can stay here without chance of deportation. until then, that's the policy. can he do it by executive order? that's an interesting debate. marco rubio coming out and saying this cuts essentially his push for a republican version of the dream act and cuts it out at the knees. i was surprised by that. >> absolutely. marco was on with sean hannity last night and said, you know, he had been working with democrats in the senate to come up with the version after it was killed last year and actually for it getting killed in the senate, he blames both republicans and democrats as well because they don't have the right perspective, he feels on it. anyway, here he is talking about what mr. obama did on friday which clearly was a political move. >> got to be done right. i mean, if you do something that somehow encourages illegal
3:08 am
immigration in the future, it's counterproductive. on the other hand, it feels weird to deport a valedictorian has been here since he was 4 years old but the president did by ignoring the constitution, ignoring the congress, makes it harder to find that balance not to mention it's offensive to the constitutional principles of our republic. >> so just ignore the laws is what the president is going to wind up doing. >> it's interesting what the president did because so many people -- so many pundits said, wow, masterful stroke. brilliant political move by the president in one swoop, he cemented latino support and he stole the thunder from marco rubio who was crafting basically an exact version of what the president did but other pundits are now saying was it such a great political move when marco rubio was trying to do something bipartisan? he could have actually gotten -- worked through congress, through legislation, gotten -- >> a real law. >> real bill. >> and i think -- i believe that personally he would have benefited more if he had an
3:09 am
invitation to marco rubio, john mccain, people who have worked on comprehensive immigration in the past and said i'm trying to play on both and trying to get congress to act. instead, he said he never got a call and mccain said he never got a call. >> so many people are looking at washington and saying it's broken, they're not going to do anything. if marco rubio could have brought it together, that would have been fantastic. what the president did on friday a year ago when he was speaking to the national council of larazza at their annual conference, what he did on friday he said a year ago at that conference, he couldn't do constitutionally. listen. here's a flashback. >> i swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books. now, i know some people want me to bypass congress and change the laws on my own. believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting.
3:10 am
i promise you, not just on immigration reform. but that's not how -- that's not how our system works. that's not how our democracy functions. that's not how our constitution is written. >> ok. that was last year. friday, he changed his mind. >> it wasn't just there, he said the same thing to univision as you'll recall last year. as we all know, the president is a constitutional scholar and former professor of it. so -- lecturer. so what's changed? what allowed him to have that change of heart over the course of the past year? former attorney general gonzalez was wondering this very thing on greta last night about the timing of this. >> the timing is very peculiar. the president is on record speaking to a hispanic audience telling the hispanic audience that he had no authority to do what they wanted which was to suspend deportation without changing the constitution.
3:11 am
and now -- now suddenly he finds that he does have the authority and so the time, of course, one can only conclude that it is in order to try to gather support within the hispanic community. when you suspend the enforcement of a law to an entire class of individuals, that is going to subject the president as we're witnessing here to criticism that, in fact, he is ignoring the law. ignoring the will of congress. >> and bill crystal called in on chris wallace's show an anti-rubio move. the whole thing was anti-rubio and by the way, abc is reporting that he's not being vetted to be the vice presidential candidate. >> marco rubio or bill crystal? >> bill crystal is being vetted. he's probably going to be the running mate. alisyn was reporting that earlier but i will say this, it seems as though marco rubio at this moment is not being vetted by mitt romney. >> busy, busy tuesday morning. thank you very much for joining us. still ahead, a shocking side effect from one of america's

>> this is startling new numbers to tell you about that paints a bleak picture of the current job market. >> according to the bureau of labor statistics for every single new person entering the work force, 74 people are dropping out.
3:16 am
stuart varney, that's staggering. >> they are. astonishing really but the mystery has been sold. one of the big questions over the last three or four years is how come the unemployment rate went down when job creation is anemic and the population is growing. how do you account for that? now we know. there are 7.4 million fewer -- more people not working, ok, let's get to grips with that. 7.4 million adults not working, ok? more than when we had in january of 2009 and we've only got 100,000 new jobs. ok? net new jobs. result? 74 people have dropped out for everyone new person hired. astonishing! >> is that why we recently saw the number tick back up again, the unemployment number? >> yes. because some of those people who have dropped out of the work force actually came back into the work force were counted, therefore the unemployment rate went back up again.
3:17 am
i mean, this all sounds rather complicated but it's not. the big story of the obama years in employment was what happened to all of these people who have left the work force. what happened? why did they leave? now, we know. 7.4 million people literally walked away from the work force in the last 3 1/2 years. and that's astonishing! that's a very large number. that's the employment story of the day. >> and you can imagine like the stress of a family when you lose that job and you can't get a job but i'm also wondering about the people who say ok, i lost my job. i got a year and a half to kick back. and look, because now it's been extended, extended, unemployment insurance. >> there are 87.9 million people now not in the work force. all time high. 87.9 million people. a lot of people are taking early retirement, three million are taking social security disability. millions of people are unemployed. they're not count.
3:18 am
they're not in the work force. >> some of those are actively looking for jobs and wish to be employed. >> some of them may come back into the work force and start looking for a job but at the moment almost 88 million adults in america are not counted, not in the work force. they're out there. they're in america. they're not working. not part of the work force. >> two things. one thing is i hear that manufacturing jobs in this country are up. i thought that would employ more people and i also think that this really pushes entrepreneurs. somehow in this country, we have to push entrepreneurship to start the businesses that are going to hire the people so we get more of the apples and googles was world. >> that's a fair point to make but it's not happening at this point. new business formation in america is way down from where it was three, four, five years ago. way down. so people out of the work force are not being entrepreneurs as you put it. trying to get back in again. they're just out. 88 million people. >> staggering numbers. stu varney, we'll watch you in three hours. >> i'm very glad to hear it.
3:19 am
9:20 to be precise. >> fantastic. thanks so much. talk about awkward, what was going on between president obama and president putin? let's look at the body language next. >> not now, though. the senate minority leader says the white house has a closer relationship with media matters. you know that organization whose mention is to take down fox news unsuccessfully, just so how cozy is that relationship? the answer may shock you.

3:24 am
organization in washington whose stated purpose is to track conservative media voices, seize on potentially offensive content and then use it to mount corporate intimidation campaigns aimed at driving these losses clear out of the public square. let's be very clear, no individual or group in this country should have to face harassment or intimidation or incur crippling defenses defending themselves against their own government simply because that government doesn't like the message that they're advocating. >> joining us from washington is the daily caller's vince colaniase researching the link between media matters and president obama's white house. good morning to you, vince. >> good morning, steve. >> so, you know, on this program and there at the daily caller, we have detailed the intimidation tactics that media matters has used against people on the right, the conservative voices, also people on fox news trying to run us out of business. trying to run rush limbaugh out of business and now, those brass
3:25 am
knuckle tactics have caught the attention of mitch mcconnell, haven't they? >> yeah, and it's a very high profile attention grabbing item. senator mitch mcconnell is the minority leader of the senate and the most powerful republican senator and in this speech that you just showed at the american enterprise institute last friday for the first time, he made it -- he made a public statement about the relationship between media matters and the white house. and as we reported, it's a long standing one for the entire obama administration, media matters has shared a weekly conference call with the center for american progress and the white house and now, senator mcconnell is saying, look, if media matters is going to go out there and they're going to intimidate conservative media figures or anybody they disagree with, then what -- then what they're going -- what should be done is that we need to pay attention to the white house's relationship here. if they're so close to media matters, how come the president is not getting out ahead of this and saying hey, guys, knock it off. you're my surrogate. you're about as close as anybody is to me.
3:26 am
>> i don't get why the white house -- this is an organization headed up by david brock. he was a republican before he turned democrat, you know, conservative before liberal. the white house is in bed with this guy's organization. he's an admitted liar, you know, that is documented and yet, liberals don't even like him and he's the point person on the counterspin for the white house? >> you know, and we reported as late as last week that the media matters web site that david brock runs actually had increased the amount of coverage it has defending the president during an election year which is a very dodgy thing to do for an organization that's tax exempt and not allowed to be supporting any individual candidate. so media matters is faced with all -- you know, all sorts of challenges to how it represents itself but now senator mcconnell is levelling the charge that the white house is faced with the challenge of actually killing people's free speech rights by being this close to media matters and organizations like media matters that go out and
3:27 am
try to harass critics of the president. what senator mcconnell is saying is the president doesn't denounce this. his silence is an endorsement of this these tactics and that's a problem. >> that's a good point. i'm sure david brock doesn't see anyivid brock doesn't see any problem with this. you havey -- you have detailed his paranoia and that's why according to them, his assistant used to carry a handgun in the district of columbia. >> that detail is troubling for insiders at media matters which told us in the very notion in an area like d.c. where gun laws are so restrictive that his assistant to be illegally carrying a handgun on him to protect david brock from unseen forces and attacks really was something that's very jarring and actually, media matters insiders found that to be a problem because they said imagine if our donors found out who are so for gun control
3:28 am
regulations that we were wielding a gun to defend ourselves, that would be a problem. >> and that's the outfit that the white house is working with, it sounds like. all right, vince, always a pleasure. thank you very much for stopping by today from the daily caller. >> thank you, steve. >> it is precisely 28 minutes after the top of the hour. their principal refused to let them sing "god bless the u.s.a." at graduation, but their fight is not over. >> hear from the kids straight ahead. then hand picked by the president, we now know who will play mitt romney in the mock debate. whose face goes under the question mark? we've got the answer. happy birthday to heart lead singer ann wilson. she's 6 it 2! -- 62.

president. according to the report, rubio has not been asked to complete any of the questionnaires or turn over financial documents. supporters say the florida senator who is cuban-american would appeal to hispanic voters. that was why his name was touted so often and, of course, florida is also a key battleground state. >> meanwhile, a popular pakistani singer who defied the taliban ban against singing and dancing is now dead. he was murdered by a gunman in a drive-by shooting in pakistan. they raced towards her on motorcycles as she left a beauty salon. she was with her father and sister at the time. her father also killed. her sister managed to escape. her ex-husband being eyed as a suspect. the ex-husband! >> all right, gastric bypass saves lives and now we're learning it has a shocking side effect. alcoholism? researchers just discovering the surgery increases some people's risk of alcoholism by 50%. those people never had a problem with drinking before. here's why.

>> welcome back. some quick headlines for you on this tuesday morning. americans' net worth plunging 35% from 2005 to 2010. the census bureau says the net worth among household heads, 35 to 44. the group typically with mortgages in college-bound kids
3:46 am
plummeted 59%. and cops thought dennis quaid might be drunk when he plowed through a stop sign in hollywood so they pulled him over. but his sobriety test cleared the 58-year-old actor. not drunk. that's good news. brian? >> didn't have gastric bypass surgery clearly. president obama bypassing congress with his new immigration policy but questions remain over his executive order overreach and what could it mean down the road for deportations and the courts? joining us right now, fox news senior judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano. so judge, we got a new fly in the ointment. all this criteria now have to go in to the process which is already backlogged with other illegals that are having their case seen. >> the problem is this, the president has unilaterally changed the law. he has rewritten the law. his heart may be in the right place for a group of people that he feels will have to stay here but he can't do that. only congress can change the law.
3:47 am
the law requires predictability. it requires fairness and it has to be constitutional. if the president writes it, it's not constitutional and if he changes the law, there's no predictability and only the congress can decide whether coming before age 16 is fair, how about 17? the president made it out of his own head and we don't have a system that permits that. >> let's talk about the court system around the country. what will that do for that process that's already backlogged big time? >> well, it's going to make it difficult for the courts to know what the law will be. if mitt romney is elected president, will this new law that the president is written still exist? well, we don't know. i think you have an interview with governor romney later today, perhaps you'll ask him this. the point is this -- if the president thinks a law is unconstitutional, he cannot enforce -- he can refuse to enforce it. thomas jefferson did that. but the president cannot rewrite a law to make it more to his liking. only the congress can remedy
3:48 am
that. the president is bypassing the congress yet again for what seems to be the umpteenth time. >> i don't know who this jefferson guy is, you want me to google him. i picture the courts and i picture the backlog that's already there for illegals that could have their citizenship questioned, this is an administration that deports 1150 per day. yet, it's still backlogged. what is it going to do for those people who qualify five years, served in the military. >> some of the people that are on, you know, on line to be deported will be taken out of that line because they will fit the president's qualifications. but the point of the constitution is only the congress can write the qualifications. suppose the supreme court upholds arizona's law later this week or early next week. what law will arizona enforce? the law that congress has written? the law that the president has rewritten? will arizona arrest illegals only to find out that the federal government refuses to deport them and what will it do
3:49 am
with these people after being arrested here illegally but the government won't allow them to be deported? it's a mess that he's created and he's violated the constitution in doing so. >> for all practical matters, the approach and the objective of this is to win over the hispanic community and we'll see if that will be effective. >> you think it has anything to do with the election coming up? >> i think we're getting a little cynical. judge andrew napolitano, great to see you. thank you so much. >> is it really great to see me? >> in person? >> i see your picture everywhere. meanwhile, 11 minutes before the top of the hour. next, is there a way to stop nightmare patdowns at the airport? judge, don't look at this, it will drive you crazy. next guest says yes and there's one airport getting ready to start it. an olympic sized surprise. this guy took some time out from his olympic torch run to propose! let's hope he gets up and to london in time. i'm a marathon runner,

>> we've all seen the horror stories, invasive t.s.a. patdowns of grandmothers and little kids so could they become a thing of the past as orlando's airport tries to cut through the red tape of a bloated bureaucracy and use private security screeners? florida congressman john mica is the chairman of the house transportation and infrastructure committee. he's been pushing for more private security screenings at airports. good morning. >> good morning. we're making a little progress but it's quite a struggle with this big t.s.a. bureaucracy. >> so how would using private screeners change the process? >> it's a first part because the t.s.a. has grown to a 65,000 person bureaucracy.
3:54 am
now, listen to this, the administrative staff have grown to 14,000. there's 10,000 out in the field. we only have 457 airports. that's about 18 administrative personnel for every airport. so we're trying to get first of all the personnel under control. then shift t.s.a. to a security. back to a security agency which was originally intended which operates on a risk basis, not shaken -- shaking down little old ladies or wrestling kids to the ground. >> congressman, how can you guarantee that safety would still be ensured if suddenly private screeners are being used all around the country and it's a hodgepodge of just private companies? >> well, did you know this? we've already had that model in place when i helped write the law, we put five airports with private screening under federal supervision. guess what? we tested it and after several years of testing, all federal and then the federal with private screening, we found that
3:55 am
the performance was better. let's not even talk about the cost savings. but the performance which is the main thing. the g.a.o. said that private screening under federal supervision performs statistically significantly better. so what's this about? doing a good job or just theater security? >> let me tell you what the t.s.a. says about orlando trying this. final approval for participation in the screening partnership program will be contingent upon the approval of a proposal that does not compromise security or detrimentally affect the cost efficiency or the effectiveness of the screening of passengers or property at the airport. if this works in orlando, do you think that we'll see this at other major airports? >> well, we've seen it. there's 17 airports and then t.s.a. actually closed down the program because places like the entire state of montana voted to opt out. they had that right to opt out and t.s.a. said no, we want to
3:56 am
keep this in federal control and we want to keep the bureaucracy in place. heaven forbid we should do it more economically, train personnel and manager them and even schedule them. they spent $433 million just recently on overtime. these people can't get it right and we need to get it right because our security and american aviation depends on it. >> it sure does. congressman john mica, we know you've been leading the charge to fix airport security, thanks so much for coming in to explain yourself. >> thank you, we're going to get er done. >> i hope so. are conservatives who disagree with obama's immigration ruling racist? we'll report, you decide. we'll tell you what people are saying. ever since he blew the whistle on fast & furious, the agent has been harassed so much, he had to leave his own home. was it worth it? you're about to hear from him in a "fox & friends" exclusive. hoc to provida better benefits package... oahhh!

4:02 am
overnight, an apparent insider attack in afghanistan kills an american service member. nine others were hurt. their injuries are reportedly minor. the three gunmen who opened fire were wearing afghan police uniforms at the time and they are on the run at this hour. president obama's pick to be the u.s. ambassador to iraq is withdrawing just one day before a senate panel was scheduled to vote on his nomination. there were concerns that he engaged in improper conduct while working at the u.s. embassy in baghdad. recently released e-mails show him having racy conversations with a reporter while he was working on a security deal with the iraqi government. he was married at the time. one man bearing a torch for the olympics and for his girlfriend. >> she said yes. david spate stopping during his relay with the olympic torch in
4:03 am
northeast england to pop the question to his now fiancee. as you can see, she said yes and everyone is very excited. >> wow,>> the headline, the banner said "you light up my life." shouldn't it say you light up my wife? >> possibly. i never really thought about what's going to happen later. >> hello. >> hey, let's talk a little bit about immigration because after all, we immigrated here, many of us from britain over 200 years ago. that's all i got. >> britain? >> great britain. >> you came from ireland. i came from sweden and ireland. ali came from -- ali is actually a fifth scotch. >> let's talk about immigration. once the british ruled us here in this land, we thought they would immigrate back to where they came from. marco rubio was very upset with what the president did on friday, unilateral order, anyone here more than five years, if you came here as a i had and if you're in the military, you are free from deportation for at
4:04 am
least two years. come in and sign in. marco rubio essentially said i've been working on a republican version of the dream act with democratic input. i am now cut off at the knees. forget about it until the election. he's quite upset. his book is out today as well. >> it is and he says what the president did on friday is simply a short-term fix very political. here's mr. rubio. >> got to be done right. if you do something that somehow encourages illegal immigration in the future, it's counterproductive. on the other hand, it feels weird to deport a valedictorian who has been here since they were 4 years old but the president did by ignoring the constitution and ignoring congress, it makes harder to find that balance not to mention it's offensive to the constitutional principles of our public. >> what he did makes it harder in the future because he acted unilaterally instead of acting in a bipartisan way as marco rubio was trying to do. he was trying to actually pass legislation so this would be permanent, as he just said, not
4:05 am
a temporary fix and what the president did on friday would steal his thunder. it was a shrewd political move but it may not actually be constitutional so in the end, does it help them? >> look, that's one argument president obama has, it is constitutional but there's another president obama who thinks it's unconstitutional. >> wait a minute, there are two president obamas? >> exactly. let's go back to 2011. >> i swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books. now, i know some people want me to bypass congress and change the laws on my own. believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. i promise you. not just on immigration reform. but that's not how -- that's not how our system works. that's -- >> that's not how our democracy
4:06 am
functions. that's not how our constitution is written. >> so that's the president of the united states who was against doing what he did on friday before he was for doing what he did on friday. >> meanwhile, legendary newsman sam donaldson who was famous for shouting at president reagan, among other presidents, he covered many of them and he would famously try to yell over the helicopter and try to get his questions answered so it was act that he would weigh in on what happened last week in the rose garden where that reporter, neil monroe from the daily caller interrupted the president in the middle of his speech but sam donaldson went one further. he decided to get inside the head of neil monroe and claimed that what neil monroe did by interrupting was not just rudeness which most people have agreed it was but it was racism. >> right, and so over on cnn, one of their hard news anchors, don lemon weighed in on mr.
4:07 am
donaldson's statement that neil monroe was interrupting the president of the united states because he was a racist with this comment. >> let's face it, many on the political right believe this president ought not to be there. they oppose him not just for his policies and political view but for who he is, an african-american. finally, the elephant in the rose garden. thank you, sam donaldson, enough said there. >> really? sam donaldson goes on to say, he says some people and news organizations encourage disrespect for the president and he called out rush limbaugh for doing that. >> here is bernie goldberg with bill o'reilly last night weighing in on this. >> do you really think that those people you call right wing bigots, racists, do you really think they'd be racist toward a black man, a conservative black man who was president of the united states? i think they'd love him. i think they'd love him. and i think if you think about
4:08 am
it for a second, sam, you might agree with that. >> in "the examiner" today, they write "calling someone a racist is far easier than formulating a defense for the policies put forth by president obama. as a bonus, it requires absolutely no thought process whatsoever. >> by the way, for the record, i thought it was totally out of control that he was yelling. he clearly mistimed the question but i never thought race was going to be a factor in the conversation or in columns or commentators. >> right. rudeness is color blind. you know? anybody can be rude and to be able to -- to claim to get inside someone's head and know what their motivations are for something is always dangerous. >> ok. what is the motivation? apparently, every year judges from the -- look, new animation. i like that. yeah. judges from the ninth circuit out west, what they do is they convene some place and they have a big conference where they try
4:09 am
to get a lot of business done. well, they're going now to apparently the maui hyatt regency resort and spa and because they do so much business, the spokesperson for the organization said it's more effective to fly everybody to maui than to have a bunch of business meetings stateside. >> some of the people upset by this is senator grassley saying can't you save some money by not going? so the ninth district court of appeals, they say no, not only can we not save money, we want to go. we confirm, i'll show you how cost effective it is and we're going. that's it. >> apologetic. >> here's the video -- look at this. here's video of that hotel, their promotional video. >> look at those judges. >> that's beautiful. look at all this you can get when you go to this hotel. this is reminiscent of other incredible government spending
4:10 am
that we have recently seen at fancy hotels and lavish workshops and conferences that they have had. here's the controversial nice perfect room. it has a near -- this is what you know about the ninth circuit court. you may recognize their names and has a near 80% reversal rate by the u.s. supreme court for starters. >> so this particular circuit is really good at coming up with decisions that are later ruled unconstitutional or illegal by the u.s. supreme court. so -- >> they have 27 business meetings they claim there. i am -- the hotel cost $230 a night. >> that's a good deal! >> good deal. >> it is a good deal. you know what? and apparently, the concern was of the senators, the cost given that they've also got to fly everybody out. >> is that a lifeguard? is there someone -- >> someone luxiarating, if that's a government employee on our dime. they were concerned not only with the cost but the lavish recreational schedule. >> meanwhile, they say -- the
4:11 am
government -- federal government says government funds are not used for any recreation or sporting activity. how is that possible? they flew out on the government dime. our dime. >> they're studying. they're studying and reading all the time there! >> my problem about hawaii and know where i'm going with because you remember, it could be a lot of fun until somebody goes surfing and lands on their ornament given to them and they get knocked out and nearly drown. remember the tarantula that could crawl on you. the brady bunch, you can watch the brady bunch and be entertained or you can learn. i learn. >> what do you think about that? >> thank you, brian, for that. coming up, he's a democrat but admits the president is in big trouble and he's here next breaking down the three threats to the president's re-election bid. >> then, mike tyson looking for his next big hit and this one, well, not in the ring. the big announcement straight

4:16 am
re-election bid in jeopardy. fox news contributor joe trippi joins us live. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> the president has had a couple of bad weeks and that particular soundbite was part of it. you say what he's doing now is trying to regain the momentum by he rolled out that rehash economics speech a couple of days ago but it was followed by the immigration thing where he jumped the line and is now going to start ignoring the law and you say that's going to help him. >> yeah, look, he clearly had a bad month. i don't think anybody can deny that. i mean, with wisconsin, some of the bad jobs numbers and then the private economy is -- >> fundraising. >> and romney beats him by $17 million and it's $77 million to $60 million which first time anybody has beaten him on raising money since 2007. i mean, clinton did it for a brief time and then he never looked back so some very significant things happened but i think both the economics
4:17 am
speech and then obviously going on immigration and really pushing the window on the hispanic vote that romney has very big problems on have started to turn the tide for him. i think he's back at least moving the ball in the right direction for his re-election. >> well, why hasn't that comment, the private sector is doing fine, stuck to the president the way it did john mccain? it was such a game changer, no pun intended for john mccain. why is it the president able to deflect that better? >> the gallup poll showed that 68% of the american people still blame bush for the economic problems. only 52% blame obama for it. i think people understand where it came from. i also think they understand that he meant, you know, that he meant -- >> what did he mean? >> relative to the public sector. >> they're not going to run that part. >> they're not going to run that in the ad. what i'm saying is i think what happened in the economic speech, he got on the right foot by getting into whether you want to
4:18 am
go back to the past bush policies. this is what he wants to say to people. is that where you want to go or keep moving forward? and that's why i think the speech actually -- i mean, i know people think it was a rehash but i think in terms of putting the old frame, his frame on the economy is better than what he was doing with the -- with that statement. >> joe, you know, you've looked at polls for a very long time. at this stage in his presidency, you know, up against a challenger like mitt romney, barack obama should be way ahead. but right now, pretty much in the statistical dead heat although i've seen somewhere romney is a little ahead. we've got a map that shows some of the toss-up states and things have gotten much tighter to the president's detriment. >> oh, yeah. i mean, you look at these states and these are the states that this is going to be fought in, you know, nevada, colorado, wisconsin. karl rove thinks wisconsin is in play. he and i talk about it. i don't really think it is yet but we'll see. but iowa, ohio, florida, the
4:19 am
ones in virginia but the one state that's interesting is since everything started going badly about a month ago, pennsylvania has come into play. there's been polls that show the president not that far ahead in pennsylvania and i was wondering is that for real? are the polls right? and then all of a sudden, the obama campaign started running ads in pennsylvania. it's running ads in those other six or seven states, too. so yeah, it would make me think that, yeah, i think pennsylvania may actually be in play. if pennsylvania is in play, gosh, it's hard for me to believe that the president could lose pennsylvania. but if he -- i mean, if it's really in play, that just shows you how tight an election this is going to be and how open this is becoming for romney. >> thanks so much for coming in. >> thank you for having me. >> good to see you. >> thank you, sir. it's the new battle of the sexes, who is more stressed out? men or women? >> men! >> stick around, the results are in! >> then hall of fame

4:25 am
respected journalist. 10 years he was the editor of the "new york times" magazine, international editor of new york magazine, journalism major and wrote an unbelievably well researched book about president obama that everybody should read. i read it in a day. it's got the great research. it shows who he is. whether you're for him or against him, it makes no difference. we need to vet our president candidates be it romney or president obama. i read the book and got unbelievable information. pretty scary information. >> right. >> i went out and did a video interview with him, a series of five video interviews 10 minutes each and i put up on my web site onemorecustomer.com because the main street press refuses, selective censorship, they refused to interview ed klein about his book. even though it's the number one bestseller on "the new york times" for four weeks but it's not on abc, nbc, cbs and cnn or major newspapers. >> right. and the book is doing well on its own despite everybody ignoring it. what about this book and his
4:26 am
leadership style that was revealed to you that maybe made you feel the way you do about the president? >> he has no leadership background and he doesn't understand america and in this book, it comes out, he doesn't understand relationships. business, football, life is about relationships. relationships that are built on trust. the people that really helped him the most in chicago, the jesse jacksons, the oprah winfreys, the black clergy in chicago, gave him money and gave him a platform. they've been kind of left out of the equation. caroline kennedy said he reminded her of his father, left out of the equation. he didn't bring these people with him. he kind of closed the door to them. he does not have a history of relationships. he comes out that he's cold, he's arrogant. he thinks he's the smartest guy in the room. he has no background to have that feeling and that comes out in this book which is so well researched and this is not a
4:27 am
book -- >> you talk about a relationship, i didn't know jesse jackson played such a role in his development every saturday going over there speaking and he worked with him one on one and we know that oprah sacrificed a lot of her audience when she took a bold move and she's been iced out of the white house according to this book. >> yeah. and you go on and on and on and so, you know, the preacher there, jeremiah wright who is his preacher for 20 years, he's got a book coming out after the election. i just think that, you know, he came on the scene. nobody knew who he was. he became a rock star. the movie industry loved him and the liberal press loved him and the international community loved him. now he's going to run on a record that he doesn't have. it's important that the american people read this book and that's why, you know, i've put it up on my you tube channel so people can go. if they don't want to read the book, they can see my clips with ed which we talk about the book. >> fran, i know you're not a republican or democrat.
4:28 am
you're pro business. and pro free enterprise. >> i'm the radical center. and i am pro business and i think that's the greatness of america is the private sector. >> well, fran tarkenton, always great to talk to you. you're never shy on opinions when you played and now that you're in the real world. thanks so much. >> thank you, brian. >> all right. coming up straight ahead, ever since he blew the whistle on fast & furious, agent john dobson has been harassed so much he had to leave his own home. was it worth it? you'll hear from him shortly in a "fox & friends" exclusive and then after their public struggle to become parents, bill and giuliani are ready to reveal more big news here on "fox & friends." they're very at home in the control room. you can't argue with nutrition you can see. great grains.

4:46 am
>> is it another presidential power grab? that's what some critics are calling president obama's move late friday to halt the deportation of over 800,000 young illegal immigrants so did the president side step congress to enact in policy and was it an overreach? i got a feeling the answer is yes coming from that man, the author of brand new book that comes out today called "the brief against obama, the rise, fall and epic fail of the hope and change presidency" and he joins us live. good morning to you. >> good to be here. >> you're a law professor. this is pretty easy. the president is simply ignoring the law which he said last year would be unconstitutional to do what he did. >> it's very hard to take a soundbite from six months ago in which he asserts i can't do what
4:47 am
you want me to do and change his mind and come back and do it. he made my problem a little bit more significant because chapter 22 is about all the power grabs and abuses of the office and he added a chapter. i have to go back and write it again. it just came out. i hate to be dated on the second day. >> power grab or simply sheer naked politics? >> well, it's both. it's done for political reason. i understand the politics. it's good politics and it's very hard to hear the stories of these kids who are going to go -- be sent home or be deported but on the other hand, you have to go to congress and ask for their permission. article 2 and article 1 are different parts of the constitution. president obama has a pretty long record now of unilateralism and the left used to criticize george bush for being imperial president. if you run down the record, just what he said, he is much further out than bush has been. >> what you do, you have the unique perch because you are a law professor out in california, you essentially present the case
4:48 am
against president obama and why he should not wind up with another term. and you got essentially three big issues. you talk about failed health care policy, the unemployment numbers are terrible and stimulus that never was. >> those three lead off the book. there are 25 chapters, 25 different subjects but unemployment he promised would be under 8%. it's never been over 8% the entire 40 months of his presidency. now it's 8.2%. he promised the stimulus would work and $870 billion is gone and ask for your friends to point something left behind. there's nothing there. and then obamacare, if we're lucky the affordable health care act will be struck down in a couple of weeks by a 5-4, even greater decision. if it's not, the president made a promise and that's what the book is built around is promises, his predictions and a few of his polemics but he made a promise if you liked your health care plan, he wouldn't change it. 86% of americans have experienced the changes he promised would not happen
4:49 am
already. >> one of the things that's unique to this president is the fact and you have a radio show, very popular and nationally syndicated show based out west is this president has fantastic support from the mainstream media so even though you've laid out the case against him, they're not going to report and repeat a lot of that stuff. >> fred barnes said here's what you've been waiting for which is a comprehensive list of all those promises, pledges and polemics, one by one, quote a source in the footnote and brief against obama is here's what he said and what you did. >> the new book is called "the brief against obama" real pleasure. >> thank you. >> it's now 10 minutes before the top of the hour. five companies with nearly 100,000 new job openings right now. what you need to get hired coming up next with cheryl casone. first, on this date in 1956 "i can't help myself" number one song in america.

how about this? check this out. a stunning brand-new satellite image that we don't have. it shows the number of job losses right here in the u.s. over the past 20 years. each -- well, it would have represented 1,000 factory workers. the photo is part of a new pbs series titled "america revealed." we'll try to get that for you. >> steve: it was a satellite im. interesting. we'll try to have it for you. meanwhile, president obama and russian president putin meeting in mexico at the g-20 summit. but there was a definite chill in the air, wasn't there? >> brian: yeah. doug mckelway is live at the white house with more. they met for two hours. we don't know what happened burks the body language was awful afterwards. >> this is the first meeting between president obama and president putin since president
5:04 am
putin returned to the job that they once held earlier this year. if body language was any indication, this meeting did not go all that well. look at these pictures. they did not make very much eye contact. their bodies were kind of squared away from each other. there appeared to be little personal connection between the two. however, the u.s. ambassador to russia said it's important we not make too much of the body language. here he is. >> i thought the chemistry was very businesslike, cordial. the actual meeting, i know the body language stuff, i've been in a lot of meetings with putin. i watched a loft video with him. there was nothing extraordinary. that's the way he looks. that's the way he acts. i wouldn't read anything into that at all. >> but the sober demeanor may have been appropriate given them
5:05 am
sending some ships to syrian ports. after the mowing, president obama summed it up this way, here he is. >> we discussed seer syria, where we agreed we need to sew a kressation of the violence, that a political process has to be created to prevent civil war and the kind of horrific deaths we've seen over the last several weeks. >> and the president added that the two agreed to work with international actors, including kofi annan to work out a solution to the crisis. although he's had little success doing that. when they sat down for the start of the actual summit, what an extreme contrast to the sober pictures of their earlier meeting. they are smiting. president obama gave him a quick thumbs up. they moved closer to one another, exchanged words and came away with very big smiles.
5:06 am
last night's dinner went late. gentlemen. >> steve: doug mckelway, acting as tanya today, talking about body language. also one report that yesterday during the photo op that at one point the president's cheek was twitching. >> alisyn: as though that may have ban tell tale sign of stress or something. fresh out from nasa, they just released this satellite image to us that we can now bring to you. this again shows the number of job losses in the u.s. over the past 20 years. each dot represents 1,000 factory workers. that's from nasa? >> alisyn: no, i was kidding. >> brian: some really tall person. >> steve: meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about this. the president of the united states on friday came out and said, you know what, congress has not enacted the dream act, so what i'm going to do is take
5:07 am
matters into my own hands and kids under 30 in this country through no fault of their own will be able to stay and apply for job permits. >> brian: for two years. so you don't have fear of deportation. so kids who went to school came here against their will. they had no choice they get to stay. the question is, why would he issue an executive order knowing there has already been a movement to try to come out with a way forward when it comes to the dream act? because he wants it, republicans don't. he went ahead and did it and much to marco rubio's chagrin, he says his plan is dead on arrival. >> alisyn: a lot of people think that's what motivated the president. this canny, political move to try to steal rubio's thunder. he was getting so much attention during this election cycle. he may have been tapped as people thought for vice president. so in one fail swoop, the president was able to shore up the latino base and cut off marco rubio's bipartisan effort that he was working on to do the
5:08 am
same thing. here is marco rubio responding to it on hannity. >> got to be done right. if you do something that somehow encourages illegal immigration in the future, it's counter productive. on the other hand, it feels weird to deport a valedictorian who has been here since they were four years old. when the president did by by ignoring the constitution and congress, makes it hard, not to mention it's offensive to the constitution. >> steve: we're going to ignore the law with this short-term fix. it's interesting, though, we've got videotape, sometimes it can be very inconvenient, particularly in this case for the president of the united states. what the president did on friday, where he changes the law -- well, you know, ignores the law through executive fiat, he said last year at the conference, was unconstitutional and he couldn't do it. here is that tape. >> i swore an oath to uphold the
5:09 am
laws on the books. i know some people want me to bypass congress and change the laws on my own. believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. [ laughter ] i promise you. not just on immigration reform. [ laughter ] but that's not how our system works. that's not how our tell me accuracy functions -- democracy functions. that's not how our constitution is written. >> brian: this policy being very well received in mexico. i'm sure the timing is gratuitous 'cause now he goes o mexico for this conference and at the same time people may have relatives. >> steve: coincidence. >> brian: they're happy this passed and i thought bill crystal to your point, he came out over the weekend and said this is an anti-rubio move. this is to stop rubio from getting on the ticket or to stop him from moving forward with his
5:10 am
policy that makes the republican party look as though they care. >> alisyn: and as we said, he was trying to do a bipartisan -- trying to work on his act same thing in a bipartisan way and has the president alienated him by stealing his thund. >> rick: that is a political risk that he took. >> steve: plus, your lead story, marco rubio not being vetted by apparently the romney team to be vice president. >> alisyn: that's interesting. we hadn't heard before. former attorney general albertorgones was on greta's show talk being timing of all this. >> the timing is very peculiar. the president is on record speaking to hispanic audience telling the hispanic audience that he had no authority to do what they wanted, which was to suspend deportations without changing the constitution and now suddenly he finds does he have the authority. so the timing, of course, one can only conclude that it is, in order to try to gather support within the hispanic community.
5:11 am
when you suspend the enforcement of the law to entire class of individuals, that is going to subject the president, as we're witnessing here, to criticism that he is ignoring the law, ignoring the will of congress. >> steve: while what the president did may get the attention of a number of latino voters, right now, ultimately if they're in this country, they're concerned with the same thing all of us are. where are the jobs? >> brian: 67% approval of the hispanic community for the president just over 30 for mitt romney. we'll see where this goes. straight ahead on this show, or i should say coming up. what would do you if your atm let with you draw unlimited amounts of cash that you didn't have? can you blame the atm? >> steve: can i hit the $1 trillion button? >> alisyn: then did the federal government waste time and your tax dollars in the prosecution of roger clemens? peter johnson, jr. says no on all counts. he's going to explain why next.
5:12 am
>> the jury found roger clemens not guilty of lying to congress about steroids. yeah. they said he did not lie in front of congress. you know what that means? he was the only one in that room who wasn't a liar [ male announcer ] when this hotel added aflac

5:16 am
the wrong evidence. >> evidence they weren't supposed to. now clemens walked. truth strikes out in the daily news ask a lot of other newspapers say things like that. >> brian: do you agree? >> i think it has a place in america that we have trials like this. let me tell you why. the knee jerk reaction is to say our tax have been wasted. were they wasted when they tried o. j. simpson? he was acquitted. the point is congress shouldn't be involved with baseball. they should be involved with baseball. are there other things more important than baseball? yes. but if congress believes that they've been lied to and they did believe they were lied to by roger clemens, they have the absolute right and they should go forward and say listen, this
5:17 am
guy lied to congress. he's lying to congress. if you're a superstar athlete that, okay? if go to conger i do or something watching the show, we're going to be indicted if congress believes. so should there be a pass, so to speak, for roger clemens, or a pass for barry bonds even those only convicted of one crime? >> brian: if it wasn't for the federal government investigation, there would still be hgh and everything else running rampant because the union high school more power. >> you're absolutely right. the rule of law in this country has a cost. it cost money to enforce the law. so if we want people going to congress and then there are no repercussions for what they say, then that's fine. then we just delegit legitimatize our congress. >> he's been acquitted of perjury, obstruction of justice,
5:18 am
lying. there will be a trial. the fellow who testified against him former police officer who allegedly provided these drugs to him, has brought a civil trial and that will be held in new york and roger clemens will have to testify in that case. >> brian: i know how you feel, but let's look at the numbers if you still feel the same way. it estimated it cost 2 to $3 million to try clemens twice. 6 million on the bonds trial, which he was found guilty on one count. approximately 55 million on the investigation from 03 to 11. when you see those numbers, do you still say it's good move? >> is it a good move that children in america believe that it's okay to take steroids and growth hormone as soon as is that good for our children? is this the american pastime? does it mean anything? are there any standards? do we have hero as soon as did shoeless joe jackson go back and play baseball? did he get in the hall of fame? no, he didn't.

5:24 am
find him. >> steve: actually looks like it's part of the painting. not even a teacher of the year award could save the latest victim of california's massive budget cuts. despite the honor, michelle was one of about 400 teachers at sacramento to receive layoff notices last month. and this week, that district's top teacher found herself the teacher of the year, out of work. why? well, it's all because of the state's last in, first out policy. joining us right now is kyle olson. he is the founder and publisher of eag news.com. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> dot org. >> steve: this is one of the things we do complain about when we complain about the state of education, is rather than looking at how good a teacher is, you look and say well, they were the last one hired, so they're going to be the first one fired. >> that's right.
5:25 am
and unfortunately, california is not the only place this is happening. it's happening all over the country every single year and it comes down to the fact that last in, first out is a policy where if you are the last person in, then you're the first person out the door. we don't care how effective you are, how much time you're putting in, what type of impact you're having on student learning. it's a real insult to teachers. >> steve: particularly in california where they've got such a massive budget shortfall. they're really taking the meat ax to the teaching staff out there. >> that's right. and what we need to be looking at is how do we get the most effective, best teach increase front of our kids across america. but unfortunately, union contracts across the country are not looking kindly on that. so what is happening is we literally have school districts in america that will add up the last four digits of someone's social security number to figure out if they should stay or if they should go.
5:26 am
so you can have a highly effective teacher standing this and you could have a miserable teacher standing there. and they would stay or go based on the last four digits of their social security number. these are policies that were implemented because of the manufacturing unions. those policies were brought into our schools and they have no place there. >> steve: you know, if people are adding up the social security numbers, i understand, i was reading on your web site in some districts to figure out who to fire, they flip a coin. i guess some protections with unions, but why they would be applicable to an education union, where you should be keeping the best person as a teacher, i don't get it. >> that's right. very few people get it. and the reason is that unions believe that every teacher is equal based on the number of years that they've been there. that's how we pay them. and that's how we decide whether they should stay or go. and it has no place in
5:27 am
education. >> steve: well e with did get a statement from the school district: given the current california, miss apperson is far from one of the ohm teachers facing the possibility of losing their job. our district has been forced to make $186 million in cuts over the past ten years, negatively affecting hundreds of dedicated employees and dramatically impacting the children we serve. that's true, but still, they're firing the teacher of the year. kyle, it seems crazy. >> that's right. and so the school district, this is a moment where the school district can stand up and say, this is not how we should be treating our teachers. we should figure out a better way to evaluate our teachers and retain the good ones and the ineffective one, move them out of the classroom. >> you're right. it would be, pardon the pun, because teachable moment. kyle olson, we thank you very much. >> any time. thank you. >> steve: next week then.

>> steve: meanwhile, gastric bypass surgery saves lives. but now we're learning it has a shocking side effect. could it be alcoholism? well, let me explain. researchers just discovering that the sugary increases that some people risk of alcoholism by 50%. those people never had a problem are drinking before. here is why. after gastric bypass surgery, the size of the stomach is reduced and that forces alcohol straight quickly through the stomach into the intestine, causing the body to absorb it quickly. that quick rush can make alcohol then more addictive, hence the potential for alcoholism. >> alisyn: brand-new study out revealing that asians have taken over hispanics as the fastest growing minority group in the united states. according to the study, the search pushed the asian population to 18.2 million.

a texas teacher is out of a job accused of ordering her students to line up and hit a fellow classmate. she claimed she was trying to teach the six-year-old a lesson for supposedly being a bully. another teacher involved is on paid administrative leave. but the parents of the child want criminal charges. >> i want her teacher certificate gone. i don't think she should be around any children teaching. >> alisyn: do the parents have a case or can the teacher fight for her job back? jeffrey gold is a former prosecutor and regina is a criminal defense attorney. thanks to both of you for being here. what an interesting story and what an unusual punishment the teacher used. this is a kindergarten teacher in a san antonio elementary school and this six-year-old was
5:54 am
reportedly a bully, so she had every one of the students line up and take a whack at the alleged six-year-old bully. jeff, is this illegal? >> it is illegal. i think that, first of all, she could be charged criminally with at least simple assault for maybe times 24 for all the kids. she could be charged with endangering the welfare of this child who was the alleged bully. but then became the victim. and finally, she could probably be charged with endangering the welfare of all the 24 kids that she enlisted to try to beat up this other kid. it's ridiculous. >> alisyn: regina, do you see it the same way? >> i think this is a case of good intentions gone really bad. i don't believe the teacher intended to maliciously inflict pain, but was perhaps trying to teach a lesson to this child about what it feels like to be hurt and humiliated by bullying other children.
5:55 am
perhaps it wasn't the right tactic, but i do believe the intentions were good. >> alisyn: so given that, regina, what i hear you saying is that she was trying a taste his own medicine. should this teacher get her job back? >> i don't believe that the teacher should be fired. perhaps she should be reprimanded for the unorthodox way she went about this. but the intentions were good. she has to also make sure that not only that child is safe, but all the other children being bullied by this children also have a safe environment and i believe that she intended -- >> you can't do this. you can't say that this teacher should stay being a teacher. she's got something going on in her head. we have to find out what it is. >> alisyn: jeff, what do you think the appropriate punishment is in that case? >> first of all, you have to investigate the teacher. i don't think she probably ought to be a teacher. anybody who thinks that you should line up 4 kids and they -- 24 kids and paddle or hit the alleged bully in this case doesn't understand how to teach. so that's number one.
5:56 am
then whether there should be criminal charges, we'll leave up to the district attorney. but it needs to be investigated for sure. >> alisyn: so meaning jail time is possible? >> i don't think so. i don't think that's -- it doesn't rise to that level. i think probably the punishment of discipline at the school, maybe losing her job is probably enough. but the criminal charges are certainly something that should be considered. >> alisyn: she's no longhorn going to be teaching at this school, but she can teach at other schools. we'll see what becomes of her. jeffrey gold and regina, thanks so much for joining us for the debate. >> thank you. >> alisyn: we have more "fox & friends" in two minutes. stick around announcer ] introducing a powerful weapon in your fight against bugs. ortho home defense max. with a new continuous spray wand. and a fast acting formula. so you can kill bugs inside, and keep bugs out. guaranteed. ortho home defense max. did i ever think i would have heart disease. she just didn't fit the profile of a heart event victim. she's healthy, she eats properly.
