3:00 am
have a great show and you, too, steve, i can hear you in the background. >> and "fox & friends" starts right now! thank you for joining us. see you back here tomorrow. >> take care! >> good morning, everyone. it's monday, june 25th. i'm alisyn camerota in for gretchen this morning. we begin with some extreme weather for you because tropical storm debbie is lashing the gulf leaving at least one person dead and another missing as this storm intensifies. >> and all eyes are on the supreme court as we await rulings on obamacare and the arizona immigration law. s.p. 1070. why some say this could be the most important week of obama's presidency. could be a make it or break it week. >> omg! plus this next story will make you burning mad. this girl is severely sunburned because her school wouldn't allow sunscreen without a doctor's note. where's the common sense i ask? you can answer at home. i can't hear you! "fox & friends" starts right now.
3:01 am
>> not since the dr. joyce brothers quiz show scandal have we heard this revealed that ali actually looks up the answer to the scramble in the computer. >> i don't normally but i did figure it out today so i will be doing that from now on. it's too embarrassing to stand there baffled while they keep turning over each letter. >> cheaters never prosper. i'm just saying. >> tell that -- >> cheaters would have -- yeah, he's loving life now. cheaters would have prospered had you kept your secret to yourself. >> i'm a bad cheater. let's tell you what's happening in your headlines. we have a lot of news to tell you about including this extreme weather alert, even before it makes landfall, tropical storm debby is causing one big mess in the gulf. fierce winds causing these to smash into streets and cars completely shattering this windshield here and it's spawned dozens of tornadoes like this one in highland county, florida. at least one person has died and
3:02 am
another missing this morning. coming up, we'll have a live report for you from florida. and a developing story overnight out of denver. a female police officer dies after being shot in the head while trying to break up a fight at a free jazz concert. the officer's name is not being released at this hour but police say she is a mom and a wife in her 30's. we're hearing reports that two suspects are in custody. two freight trains collide in the oklahoma panhandle. at least three crew members are unaccounted for at this hour. one other conductor apparently jumped to safety right before the impact. he escaped unharmed. this happened near goodwell causing this massive diesel fuel fire. you see the aftermath there. several firefighters battling the flames in triple digit temperatures were treated for heat exposure. it's not known what caused the crash or if the two trains had any radio communication with each other. and an emotional sailor reunites with his family after almost
3:03 am
losing his life at sea. >> i love you! >> max young was attempting to sail around the world when his journey was cut short by two days. out of nowhere, a whale jumped out of the water and hit his sailboat. out of nowhere or the ocean, you know? the impact from the collision knocked out the boat's steering and it started to sink! >> flipped the boat, turned it to port and then shot it, i say, about 40 degree angle. might have been 20. shot it like it was going to take off. i accepted the fact that i probably will not make it. i didn't like the idea of drowning, though. >> after being stranded off the coast of mexico for five hours, the coast guard finally arrived and pulled him to safety. there's your headlines. >> whale of a story. >> very entertaining. >> thank you. >> i don't know whose idea it was to install a washington bureau for fox newschannel but we're going to get our money's worth from them this week.
3:04 am
all eyes are on washington, d.c. this could be a make or break week for the president and his administration this week. take a look at what is on the agenda. let's take a look at the menu over there. you be the head waiter and tell you what's on tap. >> they are going to rule on two things that are going to stand out. number one, obamacare so to speak. it's going to say mandate stays or the mandate goes. hey, the obamacare should be scrapped it's unconstitutional or it should be left intact. either way, it's going to impact the elections in 4 1/2 months. the arizona immigration law, that will affect the election in the next month. the latino vote. >> there's a student loan program coming up for review and highway projects that are set to expire that congress must make a decision on. what pundits say any of these things would have been a huge thing for the administration and take all of them in tandem and this is possibly the most
3:05 am
significant week of the entire presidency. >> there's the contempt of vote of mr. holder on tap. that will probably happen this week. and in fact, darrell issa was on television yesterday saying that he thinks there will be bipartisan support, believe it or not, and there will be a vote this week. listen. >> i believe it will be bipartisan. you never know how many but there are a number of democrats, 31 who wrote to the administration asking them to be forthcoming. many of them will stay with us now that the administration has not been. >> that gives you a good idea. it's going to be a gigantic and action packed and politically packed week in washington. >> yeah, they could have the contempt vote or not and see if eric holder comes across or doesn't. let's talk about health care a little bit more. as soon as this afternoon, we will find out where they will stand. >> maybe. we're not positive it's happening today. >> when i said as soon as today, it was my way of putting you through excitement. i'm not sure if i could do it
3:06 am
again and i'll use something a little bit later in the show. i would like to add this -- for the most part, think about how nervous the president and the staff must be. they spent at least a year selling america on this. they thought they could talk about it but they realized how unpopular it is so no one has been talking about it to the president and other democratic leaders, but now, surely -- slowly but surely, like almost senator brown's win in massachusetts, this thing that the administration wanted to ignore is suddenly up in its face. no one ever talked about being unconstitutional when it passed! >> and it's interesting, if you read the papers over the weekend, you saw these stories about how people behind the scenes were trying to tell the president, you know, don't go so big, you know, maybe dial it back a little bit. don't put so much political capital in. >> vice president biden is one of them. >> rahm emanuel said don't go so big but he did. now this could be a problem. there's a new poll from 56 former supreme court clerks and now a majority of them feel that
3:07 am
at least the individual mandate will be overturned. they had taken a poll before the oral arguments and a majority thought no way is it going to be overturned. they heard how skeptical the supreme justices' questions were. they say this thing could be heading off the rail. >> it's always a bit of a dangerous game to read the tea leaves of what's on the supreme court's minds but that's the loss of the efforts here as well. of course, that was the president's crowning achievement and if this were to be overturned, it's hard to figure out how that could ever be spun positively but peggy noonan has an interesting article in "the new york post" in which she says that mitt romney is actually failing to capitalize on what could be the president's worse week. basically, she says, that mitt romney has been out on the campaign trail and playing it too safe in her opinion. that he's just delivering applause lines, he's playing it so safe because let the president's problems, you know, do him in as opposed to what
3:08 am
mitt romney is saying, she says at some point very soon, she predicts, voters tire of that and they really do want substance and they want to hear actual answers. you can't just always tell them what they want to hear. >> that particular strategy for mr. romney has actually worked thus far. going forward, what people need is she says people want meaning. mr. romney needs to present the meaning of his run, she says, he needs to explain, i will be president for this reason and that. i will move this forward and that. >> declare a purpose. >> only when people see the larger purpose will they suddenly say you know what? that guy has some ideas i can get behind and that will be the turning point, she writes. >> i hate to marginalize your assessment of peggy noonan but as a fellow massapequa person, i feel the only one qualified to comment. i think she did a good job. i'm only kidding. basically, i thought she said the crowd is getting bigger, the emotion is definitely getting stronger and by the way, she's very complimentary of president obama in the first year and a
3:09 am
half as a conservative columnist. >> that's the sense i got, too, and also i get the sense that she said stop with the applause lines in your speeches. she does -- she's a speechwriter for a living. you got to spread it out. don't go for the applause line. in america right now, we want a reason to believe in our leaders right now, tell us why you're different. >> there's another thing that she wrote that was interesting. the president's rhetorical comments is not a factor in the campaign. that's not a compliment precisely but it is true. >> we know both candidates are in full fledged fundraising mode and they're raising love buckets of cash. so president obama had an interesting -- his campaign had an interesting idea of how to get more money. on the official campaign web site,, they suggest if you're getting married soon, we have an idea.
3:10 am
n lieu of presents, ask your contribution. >> this is not going over big. >> this is crazy! >> i went to a funeral and people ask to contribute to a sports program, things that matter, in life they supported this food bank. i get that. the administration is going i have a better idea. i know you're tired of giving rich people money or giving people that afford it a wedding gift, why not just donate in the name of somebody else to us? >> it's turned off a lot of people judging by the comments underneath that registry. >> exactly right. and the daily caller has called some of the juicy ones, somebody wrote, wow, not sure my young son will be too happy about giving up his birthday presents to barack obama. to spend it all on celeb parties. do they want tooth fairy money, too? >> who is this campaign manager? mel brooks. this is better than the producers wrote, margaret! >> maggie. >> you never know, of course, who is leaving comments. it could be anyone.
3:11 am
you never know if they originally supported the president but people are making a lot of jokes if you go and read the comments. >> one more thing on what the president is picking up. the president has a different idea and i think this is pretty cool actually. he's being honest. he has a campaign fundraiser out saying look, we're being beaten on -- we are being outraised by a 3-1 ratio for the first time in american history as an incumbent. we need your help. and this -- he says we have a deadline until the end of the week. the problem is they've done it they've done it seven weeks in a row saying we have one at the end of the week. >> he told the wolf there was a fire. >> the president of the united states' campaign would like to go to durham, new hampshire, so they told the folks up in durham, new hampshire we'd like to come. the people in durham said thanks, mr. president, we'd love that but you have to pay for the extra costs of security. it could be tens of thousands of dollars. the campaign said no way, we're not going to do that. apparently, an anonymous donor in that town has stepped forward and said, i think it's a good
3:12 am
thing for the president to come so i'm going to give this $20,000 to help pay for some of the security. >> it raises an interesting question about all of these towns that too have these campaign stops where both candidates are going. if it's going to take $30,000 in a little town, who is supposed to foot the bill? they wanted the campaign to foot the bill because they don't have that extra money. but, of course, they said we would pay if it were just a presidential visit. what's the distinction, you know, in this season where everything the president does is virtually for the campaign at the moment the speeches that he's giving. so it's a tough one -- >> no, it's not too tough. the people of that town need to pool their birthday money, their wedding gifts and tooth fairy bill and put it together and have the president come. >> it's so easy! i'm surprised you didn't see that! >> all right, we'll examine all of those things. meanwhile, the president golfed. >> of course he did.
3:13 am
he's got a big week. what does he do? it helps clear his mind. >> 12 minutes after the hour. think you've heard many travel nightmares in your life? you ain't heard this one yet. one woman forced to sit next to a dead body on a 10-hour flight. >> great! then a known terrorist group now in charge in egypt but the muslim brotherhood calling for peace and unity. can we really believe that? our next guest says not so fast. we'll be right back.
3:14 am
yep. the longer you stay with us, the more you save. and when you switch from another company to us, we even reward you for the time you spent there. genius. yeah, genius. you guys must have your own loyalty program, right well, we have something. show her, tom. huh? you should see november! oh, yeah? giving you me. now that's progressive. call or click today.

3:16 am
>> the crowds celebrated as muhammad morrisey was announced
3:17 am
the victor yesterday. he won while his competitor for prime minister has gotten 48% of the vote. he was an air force officer. so what does it mean for the united states and the world now that the muslim brotherhood is the ruling in egypt when we all know the power as of today is really with the military. joining us right now is somebody also just with the military, captain pete hegstaff who not only served for us in afghanistan but worked at gitmo. tremendous experience with muslim extremists. captain, first off, since you're retired now. pete, can i ask you, do you believe there are different degrees of members of muslim brotherhood? can we look at this member as not an extremist? >> well, there are different degrees. but the proof will be in the pudding. you know, how the u.s. responds here will be determined by events as they go forward. i think there are two things we need to remember when we're looking at responding at the muslim brotherhood winning the presidency here. two is maintaining relationship with -- one is maintaining relationship with the military. we've had a long standing relationship with the egyptian
3:18 am
military which has been a guarantor of seculars and a little bit of support for the united states recognizing israel. a lot of important aspects that the former mubarak regime did. second thing is looking at the muslim brotherhood for what it is. these are the original islamists on the block. they block hamas. they brought the ideology that merged with the saudi funding that brought about, you know, al-qaida and a lot of the radical islamists that i've been fighting for years so there are always shades of gray, you might say but it doesn't mean they don't have the same goal of sharia law and radical islam. >> here we go. is this one case where rooting as americans for the military to retain their power? because they have been friendly to the u.s. interests in the past? and they did -- and on june 30th. they're going to be turning over power hypothetically to this muslim brotherhood leader? should we be hoping that they retain some of their power? >> yes, i think we should. you know, i think we should respect the democratic process when we got rid -- when mubarak was allowed to leave, we have to
3:19 am
deal with the ramifications of free and fair elections. the muslim brotherhood won because they were the most organized but i think we do need to find ways to maintain influence for the military there. they're going to help shape the constitution which will determine the long term the powers of that presidency and what the muslim brotherhood can actually do so they are a guarantor of our interest, support of israel, recognizing the state of israel, not renewing violence there. they can put a damper on how much it associates with hamas in palestine that is waging war against israel, the suez canal. a lot of things we need. >> here's what we know about morsi. we know he wants to uphold the international treaties and not go along with taking away rights of women, at least he's saying that. he wants to continue with beer on the beach. that does not sound like somebody subscribing to sharia law. >> no, it doesn't. so it's good to see that they've hedged. the proof will be in the pudding. the question will be in what they actually do. so he's actually kind of a front man. the brotherhood have a counsel as well. he's their number two.
3:20 am
throughout the election, he didn't do anything without consulting with the hierarchy of the muslim brotherhood. the question is is he really going to attempt to be a reformer or will he be beholden to the hardcore supporters? it's easy to talk about national unity now and bikinis and beer, the question will be in the days and weeks and months to come, those who represented him will expect him to deliver on what he said he would do. what he will do, we're not sure. >> on behalf of steve, we find it easy to talk about bikinis and beer, that's what i like to talk about any time of the day. >> i don't know he campaigned on that. >> next time you win if you do, just my advice. straight ahead, a good severely sunburned at school because the school wouldn't allow sunscreen without a doctor's note. where's the common sense there? entitlements practically bankrupted our nation and the next guest knows why. the government is fudging the numbers and he has the proof and the fudge! hi, i'm phil mickelson.
3:21 am
i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system,
3:22 am
it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists. [ thunk ] sweet!

3:24 am
>> alex trebek recovering in a los angeles hospital this morning after having a heart attack. the host of "jeopardy" expected to recover in time to host his 29th season next month. he had a heart attack in 2007. should fire trucks be transformed into rolling billboards? some officials in baltimore think so. they've passed a resolution urging the city to sell adds, naming rights and sponsorships to help raise money. steve? >> thank you, brian. is the federal government lying to us? we all know the cost of living changes from year to year, they calculate it, the c.p.i.
3:25 am
but our next guest says the government's data on just how much those costs increase is grossly underreported causing a lot of us to fall behind. >> our guest has come up with a solution. he created his own cost of living index that can apply to all of us and joining us now to explain is managing partner at chapwood managing investment. glad to have you here. you say the government has the gross inaccuracies in the methodology they've used to calculate the cost of living increase. how so? >> absolutely. in fact since 1983 e and 1984, this is when it began. inflation at that time was, the cpi number was -- >> the consumer price index. >> the consumer price index. that's basically what the public wages are tied to that. when someone says you get an increase in the private sector to keep you up with inflation, they're using that number. but they started changing the way the methodologies on how they calculated it and that has a major impact on everybody because when you start to see
3:26 am
that number, you say well, that's what i'm doing to keep a constant standard of living. >> sure. >> and we've heard, you know, the rate of inflation right now is about 3% or something like that. and so we think ok, that's how much the cost of stuff is going up. that's not true. you come up with this index. let's take a look. right now, according to the cpi, the government data our rate of inflation is 3.6% but look at your index. you say it's essentially three times bigger because the government, you say, is measuring things that aren't as important as the stuff you're measuring. >> the things that i measured, the government number has 60,000 items in it. if there's anything that you use that go up 15% to 20%. example would be a bagel. this is crazy, bagel goes up and costs $0.15 a year so if you ate a bagel every single day, it would be $58 more to eat bagels this year than last year and the government doesn't report that type of information of the 500 top items so what i did is i sent a message to all my friends. i was going crazy over this because people weren't keeping up with what they needed to know
3:27 am
so i got about 4,000 items from all my friends of what they spent money on. >> a cable -- >> all the things that we spend money on every day and i took the top 500 items and started tracking that because i wanted to communicate to people what really mattered and not just taking the cpi blindly and when i did that, i realized this is a major reason not only why people are falling behind but why people rely on entitlements. everybody has a threshold of pain. when you reach it, watch out. people reach that point and they say what can i do? they reach out and start using government entitlement programs. >> the bottom line is because you crunched the products that you believe people are really using, 500 of them. you think the cost of living is going up much more than we know, that explains why people feel more behind than they do. >> right. and it's not the cost of living as much as it is the cost of living increase. financial advisors need to target, you know, exactly what
3:28 am
the increase is in their portfolios. we all need to know. and everyone has their own. you have your own cost of living increase and you have your own. >> for people who live in atlanta, georgia, according to the government, the consumer price index cost has gone up 2.8%. you say it's gone up 10%. let's look at kansas city, missouri, the government says the cost of living is at 4%. you say it's double that. and you look at new york city, you say it's close to 12%. >> look, i've been here, you know, for the last couple of days and just doing anything costs more money this year than it did last year and a lot more than 3.6% as the government says. >> interesting stuff. all right, ed from chapwood partners in dallas. >> thanks, ed. >> thank you very much. >> absolutely. >> you think sitting next to a crying child on a plane is bad? >> can be. >> how about sitting next to a dead body for 10 hours? >> worse. >> it happens. >> we'll tell you that story. then teachers accused of helping students cheat. good news, teachers are back on

3:33 am
1970 volkswagen beetle has been made to look like kiss' gene simmons. it does have the striking resemblance. someone going to rock 'n' roll all night in these wheels. it will cost you. the car on craig's list for $10,000. that's worth it. that's a good deal. let's pool our money. >> i wonder if that tongue is aerodynamic where if you're going 60, 70 miles an hour, you don't have to worry about it flying off and hitting the prius behind you. >> i wonder if it has a wetting feature to keep it moist going at high speed. >> maybe that's the perfect car to drive on a rainy day. >> good point. good day for my tongue car. all right. 27 minutes now before the top of the hour. we got some substantive news so we can learn a little bit. >> we do. because the cheating scandal, brian, that defined the atlanta school system. 180 teachers accused of rigging tests so students could move on to the next grade. >> is that bad? >> yeah. because now about a dozen of the teachers are being allowed back in the classroom if you can believe it. the school district ruling there
3:34 am
was not enough evidence to proceed. one teacher saying that she feels vindicated. >> but that left me because of the way i try to live my life. i feel vindicated. >> it's not yet known where the reinstated teachers will be teaching next year. >> if anything happens, "the new york times" killed me! that's a quotation and that chilling statement reportedly uttered by "new york times" reporter anthony shadid before his death in syria. according to his cousin, the award-winning correspondent got into screaming matches with his editors at "the times" before he left about the logistics of his trip. he allegedly called his wife saying if anything happens, "the new york times" is to blame. he died in syria of an acute asthma attack. "the times" has denied any responsibility saying it does not pressure any reporters to go into combat zones.
3:35 am
>> way to take responsibility. these two sisters from washington state were so badly sunburned at school, their mom had to rush them to a hospital. it's because their teachers weren't allowed to apply sunscreen. kids can only put it on if they have a doctor's note. the strict -- the school's district has since apologized and says policy revisions are under way. >> boy. kenya airways flight to tanzania more like a scene from "weekend at bernie's." >> i think we get the point. i don't think that the airplane flight was quite this fun because a woman was forced to sit next to a dead man for most of the 10 hour trip. the man was extremely ill before the plane took off and suffered from convulsions. the airlines still went ahead with the flight and the man died shortly after takeoff. the woman complained to kenya
3:36 am
airlines who refunded her half of the $1,400 ticket. oh, boy! >> so the guy was dead, they took off and gave her half the money. >> yeah, that's not a good deal. is it? >> no, oy! mr. kilmeade, i hope you have something cheery. >> i do. >> most of the people i fly next to are healthy. >> yeah. >> and noisy. let's start with soccer, italy scoring a ticket to the semis in the euro 2012. they beat england 4-2 after a shootout. they played like for like four days after a score. after 90 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of extra time, there it goes. penalty kick would decide it. england has their heart broken again. they would dominate throughout. dimante scored the decisive healthy kick right there. he guessed wrong, did the keeper. let's talk baseball. the red sox trading the third baseman after over eight years with the team. some call it almost nine. boston shipping the all star to the white sox. they get pitcher zach stewart,
3:37 am
the ball player philibridge. this is the last at-bat with boston yesterday, they sensed he was going to be going. in fact, he was traded right after. by the way, i think he married kevin brady -- kevin brady, tom brady's sister. do what you want with that information. >> brady bunch. >> no, not part of the brady bunch which is now off the air. greg got old and they decided to disband and you couldn't get any closer at this olympic trials for this track and field to make the track and field team. look at this. even a photo finish couldn't produce a winner here for third place and a berth in the olympics. you have jenna torma number one and allison felix number two crossing the line at the same time. what would they do? the winner would get third place, a trip to the olympics. what's at stake? everything is at stake. after hours of debate, the decision goes to this. the athletes can let a coin toss decide or have another runoff if
3:38 am
they disagree. it's an automatic runoff. the u.s. olympic committee says the situation is unprecedented. by the way, coming up, if you want to learn more about sports, go to score. i talk about three stories that matter a lot. you're not done with sports. an estimated six million people in the u.s. suffer from an unruptured brain aneurysm. it could be inside you right now. once they rupture, they can be extremely fatal. to raise awareness for the disease, celebrities are coming together for the first time for this cause on long island particularly here is nice. the big daddy golf classic is almost under way and anna coyman is there. talk about what's behind you. that's a beautiful castle. >> yeah, this is a beautiful opeka castle here in huntington, new york. never been here and it takes your breath away. but dozens of celebrities like mike tyson and michael strahan, ronnie lott and bill hemmer are going to be coming out here for the first annual big daddy celebrity golf classic. i'm joined now by the one and
3:39 am
only big daddy himself, rich delgada, the organizer of the event and the doctor that saved his life. good morning to you guys. >> good morning. >> so first, let's talk a little bit about what you dealt with. in september of 2008, what happened exactly when you were diagnosed? >> well, i was told hey, you have an aneurysm. we've got to do something about it. and this is the doctor that did something about it. so knock on wood, i'm alive. i'm healthy and now i'm giving back and i'm trying to help the doctor and the hospital build an up-to-date super scaled center. >> right. so the money raised tonight and today is going to be going to research for aneurysms. talk a little bit about that because 1 in 30 people, doctor, have an unruptured brain aneurysm but there's actually two categories. >> there are two categories, anna. there's aneurysms that have ruptured and it's called a
3:40 am
subarachnoid hemorrhage. it's a devastating bleed. there are patients in a separate category like rich where we find the aneurysm before it ruptured. it's an incidental or unruptured aneurysm and then maybe 5% of the population who are walking around with aneurysms and we try to clip or coil the aneurysms before they rupture in selected patients. >> how good does that feel? this is the doctor that saved my life, you know? >> it's an -- it's an unbelievable feeling. and, you know, it's not only saving the patient's life. it's saving the life of their relatives and their friends. it's a tremendous feeling. i can't verbalize it. >> right. we have to wrap things up but real quick, the risk factors you say are what? smoking. >> smoking, hypertension. family history. we screen patients with family history. and, you know, to take care of aneurysms, you need a comprehensive center like we have in north shore, multidisciplinary center with neurologists, intensive care doctors, physicians who could do the coiling and rich had a
3:41 am
clipping of his aneurysm, two ways to take care of them with coiling and clipping. >> thank you so much. and we're going to be having fun out here all morning long talking to a lot of the celebrities. back to you. >> are you going to be golfing? don't avoid the question, will you or will you not be golfing today? >> i'm trying to act like i know what i'm doing here. i'm going to be riding in the cart. >> i'm sure big daddy will show you how to do it. next up on the rundown for this monday morning, some democrats saying it's going to be the republicans fault if the u.s. supreme court rules against obamacare. isn't it about the constitution and not politics? a couple of washington insiders with their take on the other side of a brief time-out. >> forget an eye for an eye. how about a hair for a hair? a judge makes a 13-year-old girl chop off her own ponytail as punishment. fair or too far? we're going to debate this crazy story. whoa.

3:45 am
>> an extreme weather alert. tropical storm debby now stationary over the northeastern gulf coast and wreaking havoc. dumping more and more rain and even spawning tornadoes as well. reporter april kellogg is live right now in florida. good morning to you, april. >> good morning and the wind is still pretty strong out here this morning, the flooding also an issue although it's gone down quite a bit since we first got out here about 2:30, 3:00 this morning. here's some of the worst damage we did find earlier this morning. that's a collapsed house that i'm told came down about 8:30 last night. that's after several reports of a tornado in this area. no one was hurt, fortunately but i'm told the people next door to the house were trapped inside and had to call for help. as the sun is starting it come out this morning, we're starting to see a lot of the damage.
3:46 am
we're seeing that cars are tossed about. this is somebody's front yard that's completely flooded. lawn furniture everywhere this morning and they're still without power in this area and we're told that could be for quite a while, the worst of all of this is we're expecting more rain so a lot of these folks as they're waking up trying to assess the damage, fearful of what's to come so they're picking up what they can and brace for more rain that's expected possibly this afternoon and tomorrow. >> that neck of the woods will have rain and wind for quite a while, a couple of days. all right, april kellogg, thank you very much for the live report. >> as we await the supreme court's ruling, could come as early as today, the latest poll shows 38% want the president's health care initiative overturned. democrats playing the blame game saying it will be republicans' fault if the law is declared unconstitutional. is that fair? right now, here to debate are our washington insiders for this morning, democratic strategist
3:47 am
chuck rocha and republican strategist brad todd. good morning to both of you. >> good morning, steve. >> good morning, brother. >> you say that the u.s. supreme court is political. and whatever they come out with will be a political verdict. >> i say that because if you read the latest bloomberg poll of constitutional professors, 20 out of the 21 say this is not unconstitutional and then when you have members on the court who are appointed by republicans and confirmed by the senate, it kind of shows that it kind of is political. and i think that it will be a political decision. >> what do you think? >> first off, constitutional law professors are not exactly the right group to survey. if we didn't have one as president, it would be a pretty inconsequential group at all. no insult to my friends in that profession. frankly, if the party with the court justice could appoint a judge, they would be happier with david souter.
3:48 am
>> if it was overturned, democrats will use this as a campaign issue going forward. >> absolutely. so if they overturn this law which i don't think they will do, you will have people falling off the road. we'll be the only industrialized country without a health care plan and as a political consultant myself, i will use it to defeat republicans every day. >> yeah. and i understand you feel, brad, that if it is struck down, it could actually hurt republicans. >> i think if it is struck down, it gives president obama one last exit ramp off the freeway. he gets to stop pouting and say, ok, i heard you. i'm moving back to the middle. my first two years were too far radical to the left. he has one more chance to be contrite. i don't know if he'll take it but it will be his last best chance to move to the middle. >> there's one other thing that you didn't discuss and that is if the supreme court finds it unconstitutional, the individual mandate, maybe it's because it's unconstitutional sclal --! >> let's keep in mind that this is the same supreme court that said that corporations are
3:49 am
people and that unregulated money can flow into our political system and it's a-ok. i don't think that this supreme court has the best record of standing with the american people. >> and brad, if it is found unconstitutional, it would be ironic because the president of the united states once taught constitutional law at a university. >> it sure would. let's keep in mind, this same white house said this law would get more popular overtime. it hasn't. they say any legal challenge was frivolous and would be thrown out of court immediately. it hasn't and so it's pretty clear that this law was just a patch job. it's what they could get through congress and it's a bad law. >> all right. we'll find out, the supreme court could rule this morning and you'll see it live here on fox. chuck rocha and brad todd, thank you, gentlemen, for joining us live. >> thank you. >> you bet. good fair and balanced debate. meanwhile,al all you 6-year-old and grandmas in wheelchairs breathe easy. we'll tell you about it. an eye for an eye, a hair for a
3:50 am
hair. a judge orders a mom to cut her daughter's ponytail off as punishment. is it legal? a fair and balanced debate next.
3:51 am
3:52 am
3:53 am
>> what's the right punishment for a 13-year-old girl who chopped off a toddler's long hair in a restaurant? one utah judge decided the girl's own ponytail would have to be hacked off in court. he ordered her mother to do it. let's debate this with criminal defense attorney and fox news contributor arthur adeilo joined by former prosecutor and defense attorney david schwartz. great to see you, gentlemen. arthur, this was a 13-year-old girl who at a mcdonald's befriended a little 3-year-old and then chopped off her hair as a sort of prank. the judge decided to retaliate an eye for an eye, a ponytail for a ponytail had the mother chop off a 13-year-old girl's
3:54 am
hair. what do you make of this punishment? >> there's a couple of things that popped out to me. number one, what is a 3-year-old doing alone in a mcdonald's this this 13-year-old has access to her to cut her hair? i don't know if -- >> i don't know where her parents were. >> somebody had to be with her, right? be that as it may, what happened is the judge sentenced her to a period of community service, a period of detention, 30 days detention and then told the mom and this young woman, young girl, if you cut your own hair off, instead of doing 250 hours of community service, you do 150 community services and they did it and you know what? the judge is thinking outside of the box. the law says that they're allowed to do -- judges are allowed to put a sentence in that gives them guidance and will stop them from doing it again in the future. good for him for thinking out of the box. >> creative punishment, do you like it? >> no, it's abuse of discretion. it's clearly abuse of discretion. there is no eye for an eye in our court system. this is not deuteronomy.
3:55 am
this is our court system. if somebody commits an assault, we have seen every type of assault case imaginable. you can't have retribution in the courtroom itself. it's abuse of discretion and it's an inappropriate sentence and also, it's a lost opportunity. because there's clearly mental health issues on the part of this 13-year-old and we lost an opportunity. >> the judge do therapy of some kind. >> big time therapy for a 13-year-old? >> oh, my god! with therapy! >> it's like joey jackson should do therapy for those kids on the bus that went crazy on the main street. enough with the therapy. you know what my therapy used to be. my father used to take off his belt and whip me in the butt. it ain't so bad being without that. >> trust me, a little bit of lubriderm and she's fine. >> cutting her hair in court is going to stop her from doing it again. >> her mother is the one that did it. >> the 13-year-old is the opportunity that we have for rehabilitation. if there's ever going to be opportunity, it's for
3:56 am
rehabilitation. >> i know you have young kids. it's hard on get 13-year-olds to do anything or understand anything. her mother did this. no, he did order it. he gave her the choice. he says you can either do all the community service or cut your hair. >> it was her attorney. >> whose fault is that? >> there's no counsel there to counsel her. >> in retrospect, her mother said i should have gotten a lawyer. why didn't she get a lawyer? >> i need a gavel for this segment, producers. thanks so much. >> we're done? >> yeah. you're done. >> thanks so much. >> all right. so much for the will of the people. two major cities vote to reform out-of-control pensions but now the union is suing to overturn that. can they do that? great news, the largest solar plant in the world is in the works right now. the bad news, it will apparently vaporize birds. we're going to find out the truth here. we'll debate all of this. stick around. ♪

weather alert for you. even before they slammed, tropical storm debby is causing a big mess in the gulf. fierce winds causing them to crash into homes and cars completely shattering one windshield, you'll see. it's spawned dozens of tornadoes like this one in highland county, florida, at least one person has died and another person is missing. and developing story overnight out of denver. a female police officer dies after being shot in the head while trying to break up a fight at a free jazz concert. the officer's name is not being released at this hour but police say she's a 32-year-old mom, a wife and a veteran on the police force. we're hearing reports that one suspect is in custody. two freight trains collide in oklahoma's panhandle and explode into flames. at least three crew members are unaccounted for at this hour. one other conductor apparently jumped to safety before the impact. he escaped unharmed, we're told. it happened near good will causing this massive diesel fuel fire. several firefighters battling
4:03 am
the flames in triple digit temperatures were treated for heat exposure. it's not known what caused this crash or if the two trains had any radio communication with each other. there are new warnings about what's set to be the largest solar energy panel plant in the world. reports suggest the 170,000 garage door sized solar mirrors of the plant will be so powerful that it could vaporize birds, blind drivers miles away. flip small airplanes or even attract air force heat seeking missiles. it's not armageddon. the plant is being built along the california-nevada border. they should look into some of those design flaws before they launch that next time. >> you would have thought -- >> design flaws? >> i call them flaws. >> you do, really? we have enough sparrows. i think we're fine. >> we have plenty of condors, 28 now. >> yeah. >> meanwhile, all eyes on this place, the u.s. supreme court. just a couple of hours, we could
4:04 am
find out if the justices will issue their ruling on obamacare. president obama's controversial national health care law. kelly wright is live in washington, d.c. with the preview of what could happen at 10:00 this morning. hey, kelly. >> good morning to you, sir. supreme court is expected to make its ruling today or sometime this week on health care reform. since the case went to the court, there's been widespread speculation among democrats and republicans as to how the court might rule. the health care insurance reform law is president obama's crowning achievement as he played a round of golf on sunday, he no doubt is keeping a very close eye on the supreme court. his fellow democrats are hoping the supreme court will uphold the law. >> i think at this stage what we find is that millions of americans have already benefited from the elements of this historic reform and i believe most americans will say, we're never going to go back to those days where my child could be denied access to my health insurance because he or she had a pre-existing condition.
4:05 am
>> speaking of conditions, on the condition the supreme court knocks down all or part of the law, the speaker of the house, john boehner sent his members a memo warning them not to spike the ball if that should happen. and republicans are looking ahead at a broad plan to move forward. >> because all along, we've said real problems, this sinlt the solution. if this goes away, we still have to start dealing with the problem. >> all right. now, the main question the court is considering is that if it's constitutional to force americans to purchase mandatory health care insurance or face a fine if they fail to do so. whatever the court decides, it could have a sweeping impact on the presidential race. another matter that the court is expected to rule on this week, the arizona immigration law. the highest court in the land will decide if the controversial anti-immigration law is constitutional. that law, of course, allows police officers to check immigration status during traffic stops and make it a crime for immigrants to seek
4:06 am
work without proper documents. now, critics argue that could lead to racial profiling. steve? >> are the will -- all right, kelly wright live in d.c. with the latest. we could find out about arizona and health care. both of them gigantic stories because you throw in the contempt of congress for mr. holder, and the highway bill and the student loans expiring shortly, it's a big week in washington. >> it sure is. it's hard to see how either way with the decision of the supreme court is making for the health care law, how either way it will work for the president because let's say that they uphold it. it's still an unpopular law. there are still more americans who believe it should be overturned, struck down than people who support it. so in some ways, if it's struck down or if the individual mandate is struck down, it would give the president some political cover to not have to then pay for it and say it's out of my hands, the supreme court did it. >> the most amazing thing is the president's hallmark achievement to have national health care.
4:07 am
harry truman couldn't do it, eisenhower couldn't do it. no one could do it. no one talks about it on the campaign trail. of the democratic candidates, high profile and low profile, they never talk about it. if it's struck down, who is angry? brit hume weighs in. >> there's been some speculation that the court blows it up by declaring the individual mandate unconstitutional and thereby pulling out from under the law the funding mechanism that basically supports it, that will be better for the president because it will take the monkey off his back and the unpopular law will be gone. i dispute that. i think if the law is struck down, it will be a declaration that his single aschooechlt -- achievement that he devoted so much of his first term is illegitimate. i don't think there's any way that helps. if it's not struck down, it remains, i think, an unpopular law. >> so we could find out as early as 10:00 this morning. right now, according to in trade, one of those on-line
4:08 am
platforms where you can actually -->> love the internet. you're always on it. >> i am. just during a commercial, i brought some stuff on dollar shipping, you can't beat it. at in trade, right now where people wager their own money, there is a 76% likelihood that the mandate will be overturned. and in trade historically has been pretty darn accurate. >> unless they actually talk to the supreme court justices. >> plural. >> i don't buy into it, ok? count me out in your little game. >> so you say -- >> i say it -- >> it will not be overturned. >> i say i can't wait to find out what they say. that's what i say. >> well, that's the way to say it. yesterday, there was a huge day in egypt. it was their first elected president. their first freely, i should say, elected president. >> it wasn't rigged! >> right. and they elected a candidate from the muslim brotherhood. it's hard to know what to make of this candidate. "the new york times" describes him as a lackluster accidental
4:09 am
candidate. that's hardly a ringing endorsement. >> that's what they call mitt romney, actually. >> yet the united states did congratulate him. they sent their congratulations. senator mccain sent over some because the united states is going to have to work with the system as did joe lieberman. >> he said he's going to announce a prime minister that's independent. he said he's going to be a president for all people including christians and he's not going to say this whole sharia thing does not have jobs and can't drive, he doesn't happen to be for that. he's pro bikini, he's not banning it. you ran on that platform in high school, steve and had success. here's the other thing, he went to u.s.c. and got his doctorate. he's familiar with the american system. i sfoek spoke to david post on friday and met with him one on one. talking to him, he sounds like a free market capitalist. what he said he's going to do and he's going to do could be two different things. problem is the military
4:10 am
dissolved the parliament that also was freely elected and they don't show signs of giving up control. >> what he has the power to do remains a question mark. >> he could be like queen elizabeth. >> right. >> symbolic. >> analogy. >> apparently the military has promised hillary rodham clinton who is the secretary of the state that they will turn over power of the government to the new guy on june 30th. so it's such a gigantic week ahead, you know, plus the muslim brotherhood -- >> we're not going to run repeats. we're going to do live shows. >> no. here's what the president was doing over the weekend. ok. meanwhile, let's talk about this. we mentioned it a little bit ago. it is very intrusive and frequently humiliating when you want to get on an airplane to go see your loved ones or go to disney world or wherever and you pretty much have to do -- take off all your clothes. >> not really. >> they don't ask you to do that. i know they do that as a precaution. >> that scanner pretty much takes off all your clothes. >> it does peer through your
4:11 am
clothes, that x-ray scanner. now the future of airport screening, this should comfort you. it's 7 to 10 years from now they claim you won't have to wait in any of these security lines because there will be so many cameras and basically built in medical -- metal detectors that are monitoring you and screening you as you just walk down the hallway. it will no longer be intrusive and furthermore, there will be screeners hidden away that are doing that behavioral profiling that we've talked so much about, the el-al, israeli airline uses, they will be watching for little nervous ticks, little strange behavioral conversations that you're having with other people. >> lighting a fuse. >> perhaps that. that will be the future. >> if you're bringing dynamite to the airport, still don't try it. that won't be allowed. they're going to have the finger swipes where you swipe your finger and they find out what you got on your social studies test in 10th grade. >> right. key is to keep those machines plugged in. over the weekend at new york's j.f.k. airport, for a couple of hours apparently some t.s.a. guy
4:12 am
just kept saying come on through. come on through. the lights never went on because the screening machine was unplugged! for hours and t.s.a. had to bring back some jumbo jets and screen everybody. >> good job! >> i had to drop off my cousin at the airport and mental note, i'm going to go in there and tell the t.s.a. people to keep it plugged in. you had a great tip there and i wanted to be able to share. >> that's helpful. >> so much for the will of the people. two major cities voting to control the out of control pension payment but the union is suing to overturn that vote. can they do it? stuart varney will weigh in with them. >> we'll get him on the scale. and he'll literally weigh in. >> and then president obama making a campaign stop in a tiny town today. so who should foot the bill for the extra cost? like police overtime? the town can't pay it. who will? we'll tell you straight ahead. hi, i'm phil mickelson.
4:13 am
i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit,
4:14 am
even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.

4:17 am
then you've got to cut education and health services to the absolute bone and beyond. or some of these towns and cities are going to declare bankruptcy. it is that simple. >> and then the deals that they had are no longer applicable. >> go to bankruptcy court and the pensions are off anyway so the unions are actually pushing people towards bankruptcy. that's what's going on. >> the math is pretty staggering and the pension costs have soared in the past decade from $73 million to $245 million. and now, the pensions costs that they pay out outpace the revenue that they take in, obviously. >> what particularly annoyed people in san jose, for example, is retired city workers, their average pension is over $90,000 a year. plus free health care essentially for the rest of their lives. plus a huge check when they do retire to make up for loss of vacation and sick pay. >> but those are deals that
4:18 am
their towns, you know, said that would be -- a deal is a deal. but you've got some stats on how much various people across the country owe per person which is pretty astounding. >> ok. if you take the very, very big picture, the state pension funds are underfunded to the tune of $4 trillion. if you zero in on the city of chicago, every man, woman and child in that city owes just for the pensions in chicago $9,000 each. that's it. and if you extrapolate out to the whole state, every single man, woman and child in chicago owes $15,000 for the pensions for the entire state. >> the people in illinois. >> it's not payable, ok? it's not payable. >> we may have a live shot of their debt clock that you might be able to see ticks up all the time just like the national debt. there you go. i mean, they have to do, unfortunately, they're in the red. >> well, everywhere is getting a debt clock. chicago has got its own debt clock. california has its own debt

landmark ruling on whether president obama's health care law overhaul lives or dies or survives in pieces? how will the g.o.p. react if it is upheld or thrown out? joining us right now is house majority whip congressman kevin mccarthy is here. with him is chairman of the house republican conference, texas congressman jed henserling, we get you on sometimes but rarely together. the word from the house is if it's struck down, no spiking the football. >> no. you want to see what the court decides. what's their reaction and whatever we have to do after that. so we'll read the decision and move from there. >> congressman, what does your gut tell you? >> my gut tells me i don't know what the supreme court is going to do. but i do agree with kevin. i mean, what the most important thing is the american people want to make sure that they have patient centered health care where they make decisions, that they get quality health care at a price they can afford and the majority of american people, that means the president's
4:25 am
health care program has to go away. >> you know, valerie jarrett said over the weekend, i'll just summarize. she said essentially the reason why it's not popular is because republicans kept running it down and they've been more effective in running it down than we have been promoting it. >> look, it's not popular because of what's in it. the taxes, 20 million will not be able to keep their health care and the president promised that. the own number said it's going to cost another $1.7 trillion. and you have that whole board of 15 people, unelected that's going to regulate and decide what you're going to get in medicare? >> the so-called death panels. >> exactly. and it cuts $500 billion from medicare at a time many medicare isn't even solvent. that's what he does. >> the president said before the entitlements have to be addressed but he's not addressed them. congressman, you know there are parts of this that are popular. for most people, they like the fact that people can stay on their health care plan until they're 26. others say that's the thing to do to keep people with pre-existing conditions, to give
4:26 am
them health care. even though the plan is not popular, those things are. what do you expect to do about that? >> there are some provisions that the major insurance companies that insure employer-based health insurance, many of them have already announced that they plan to keep a number of these provisions. but i think, again, what's most important is let's not make the mistakes of the past which is to rush through a 2800 page bill in a matter of weeks behind closed doors. we're still learning more about the behind closed doors shenanigans that took place with respect to the pharmaceutical companies so step number one is going to be let's listen to the american people and, you know, employ the hippocratic oath. first, do no harm. again, people by and large were happy with the quality of their health insurance. it was the affordability. the president promised us if we voted for his health care plan it would become more affordable. >> we have a lot to talk about this week. let's talk about fast & furious.
4:27 am
you could be calling the attorney general out of contempt of congress this week if he doesn't, in fact, supply the documents that's been requested. a leadership position, ranking member on that very committee of oversight had this to say about that possibility. >> he's already turned over 7,600 documents and gone through millions of e-mails and has even given up what's called internal deliberative documents. these are the types of documents that attorney generals over and over year after year after year have held close to themselves and their offices. >> so he hasn't done enough. we know that clearly. do you expect this to come to a vote in congress and in the house? >> unless he brings the documents for it. look, it wasn't just republicans that asked for these documents. democrats, too. remember what's happened here. >> an american died. an american citizen died based upon the actions of the american government.
4:28 am
holder announces and gets the president to the executive decision based upon 24 hours before bringing the documents forward. why is that? you know, nixon did it. when he did it, it was wrong. and it's wrong to do it now. they have a right to know why is an american citizen dead. why are we afraid of providing the documents? >> congressman, what did the executive privilege do to this whole debate? >> one, it's something that the president threw in at the 11th hour if not the 11th hour plus 30. and it begs the question, we thought the oval office was not involved. how can you exercise executive privilege now over documents that have been discussed for months and months and months and so in some respects, it's kind of like the white house put themselves front and center in the middle of this. of course, i don't know. i suppose the cynic in me says i'm the president and i've presided over this economy for 3 1/2 years, i'd find any way to change the subject whatsoever. >> it will be one of those weeks
4:29 am
that we can't forget. >> may 1st, they said they knew nothing about fast & furious and they had to go back and say we did. >> between obamacare, the arizona law and what's happening in egypt and, of course, contempt of congress, this is going to be one of those weeks -- >> we're still sitting with unemployment above 8% when the president said stimulus passed, it never happened. 40 consecutive months. >> congressman kevin mccarthy and congressman jed henserling, thanks for coming into the studio. if you have any problems getting around new york, just let me know. i have a few tokens. here's a great way to create jobs, push the job creators out of the country. it's happening at a record pace. donald trump is here next to expand. that's what he looks like. then, if the shoe fits, steal it. why thieves are stealing sneakers one shoe at a time.

meanwhile, he joins us every monday morning at this time. we're joined by donald trump. good morning to you, mr. trump. >> good morning. >> i was reading in the paper that you were in attendance at a show on broadway called "one man, two governors" and you got fired. >> well, they asked me to lift up a trunk. i didn't know it had lead in it and i didn't know that had had a man standing on top of because i was sort of asked to go in the opposite direction. so i was lifting up like about a 600 pound trunk, this thing was heavy and it's not easy to lift that up. >> then what happened? >> and then -- >> it was fun. it was just a broadway show and it was really good. we had a good time with it. >> good. >> you got fired at the end. >> yeah, i always. everybody gets fired. >> let's talk about what happened in egypt over the weekend. the muslim brotherhood candidate was elected in the first free presidential election. his name is muhammad morsi, what we to make of that sf>> i think obama's foreign policy has been a total disaster. a lot of people say they
4:35 am
shouldn't attack him on foreign policy because he's done so well. what has he done well with? his foreign policy has been a disaster. the muslim brotherhood has taken over egypt which is as bad as it could get. we give billions and billions of dollars of egypt. egypt was a so-called friend of israel. it's not going to be a frenld of israel now. you hear what they're saying and i mean, overall, the foreign policy of barack obama this is just one of many, many instances it's been a disaster. >> what do you expect him to do? for example, most people want the group that's been banned for the last 80 years for many elections and they vote for them. are we supposed to put our finger on the scale? >> no, we're not supposed to do that but we could have helped mubarak stay. mubarak was a friend of ours and he was a friend to israel and we dropped him like a red hot potato. now he's sitting in jail waiting to die. he was dropped so quickly, it was incredible. so instead of supporting people
4:36 am
that have really supported us, look what we do. and now the muslim brotherhood has taken over egypt which is by the way, a disaster for israel. >> because the protesters were not muslim brotherhood. they were young college kids who wanted a change. those kids have been sidelined and the muslim brotherhood because they're a well oiled machine compared to the other groups. >> they were. and i heard they ran it beautifully and smartly and they outsmarted the united states, as usual, what's new with that? everybody outsmarts us. >> sure. those are live pictures right there of the square, luckily it didn't burst into violence over the weekend. >> you know, another beauty, look at libya where the chinese are taking all the oil. we went in there. we made it possible for qaddafi to get out and now the chinese have taken out all the oil. >> and they're defiling our graveyard where the soldiers were buried after world war ii. t. boone pickens was on with chris wallace over the weekend. t. boone pickens sounded like you in talking about our
4:37 am
plethora of natural gas and how we're not taking advantage of it. listen. >> well, it's up every street and down every alley in the united states. it's the largest natural resource that we have and we're now talking about exporting it out of the country. use it here. increase the demand for natural gas and use it here. don't send our cheap, clean -- it's 30% cleaner than diesel. so don't ship it out to china or wherever else and import dirty opec crude. i mean, we're going to go down as the dumbest generation in the world if we do that. we are fools if we do it because we have so much natural gas, it's unbelievable. >> we have enough natural gas for a couple hundred years. why send it out of town, donald trump? >> he's right except for one thing, not that we're going to go down, we are down as the dumbest group of people. we have the dumbest leadership in many, many generations and
4:38 am
it's incredible what we're doing. he's 100% right. we're loaded up with natural gas. we do nothing about it. can't get it. they're not adapting cars to it. we could solve this problem so quickly. we don't need opec. we don't need anybody but we don't do anything about it. it's hard to believe. actually, it's hard to believe. >> donald, i want to ask you about a very provocative subject that we covered over the weekend and that was that more and more very wealthy americans, multimillionaires and billionaires are renouncing their u.s. citizenship in order to avoid having to pay a massive tax bill? what do you make of them? >> well, i see it and i hear it all the time. i know of such people, they go out and go to other countries. you know the names of the countries where they don't have to pay the taxes and it's a problem for this country and that's why the whole system of taxing, you know, it used to be they'd leave from new york to another location. you go to florida, you go here. now they're leaving the united
4:39 am
states and going to other countries. >> right. but i mean, donald, you've made lots of money. have you ever been tempted to renounce your u.s. citizenship? >> i'm too loyal to this country. i will tell you something, if i weren't loyal to the country, or in some cases these people just -- i mean, honestly, i know some of them, they're money machines. they think in terms of money, they don't think in terms of country. and you know, if i were that way inclined from an economic standpoint, it's a very smart thing to do. i can't do it because i'm too loyal to the country. >> yeah, and you know what? don't go to france. they're taking 75% of your income. >> france would never be my first choice anyway. >> good. >> never has been. >> they've got some delicious runny cheeses, though. >> yeah, but i like our food better. >> me, too. >> a lot of vacation. >> wait, where did french fries come from? here or there? too complicated. donald trump, thank you very much. see you next monday. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. let's get to the rest of the headlines now. alex trebek, you know him from "jeopardy" is recovering this

4:53 am
studio, the author of this book climbing up the charts right now. while everybody is talking about obamacare, not a lot of people are talking about the significance of the arizona law. do you think the law is too tough? >> i think the law is constitutional. that's what the supreme court will rule on this week. i talk about that in the book. first thing i say is this issue came up in our campaign and i grappled with it. the law made me uncomfortable. i understood as i learned more about what arizona is facing. arizona has an all out border problem like any other state in the country, certainly unlike florida. i think they have the right to do it. i think it's constitutional and i think the supreme court can and will uphold it. i don't think the law is a molgd for the country. i think the model for the country is for the federal government to do its job. what i reminded people is if the federal government is enforcing our immigration laws and had a workable immigration system, you wouldn't need arizona's laws. >> why did it make you uncomfortable? >> i think the notion, especially the way it was drafted in the beginning sounded like the police could take over people because of the way they look like. >> even the president said that. >> first of all, the law was
4:54 am
amended on that. my position shifted on that. the law was changed and specifically banned that sort of thing from happening. but i think what we need to do, yes, look, i think arizona type laws are not the ideal. we have to understand why states like arizona did it. the federal government should do its job. the federal government had been doing its job and spending money defending the border and electronic verification system and these sorts of things, i don't think you would have arizona type laws across the country and i don't think they're the ideal way to hajd this issue. i've never believed in state immigration policies but i understand why a state like arizona has it. and i believe it's constitutional. >> what do you think of the way that mitt romney would handle things if he were elected president of the united states? >> i think he's been very forward leaning and i really am happy with the way that mitt romney has been expressing himself on this issue and all the issues really but on this issue in particular, i think he's been the most compelling voice in favor of legal immigration that we've seen in quite sometime in terms of lining out the sequential factors of, number one, you need enforcement, you have to secure the border and have e verify. number two, we are going to
4:55 am
modernize and improve the legal immigration system and he had a great line last week in his speech in orlando where he said that he -- we need to make legal immigration more attractive than illegal immigration. i think that's exactly on point. i don't know anyone who would rather immigrate illegally but i think one of the greatest contributors is a broken legal immigration system. >> one of the things that mitt romney said that has gotten eyebrows raised is he would help extradite and speed up the green card process. people have pointed out that's congress' job. the president may have to do an end run around congress as president obama did to deal with immigration. do you think he can tackle the green cards as possible? >> i think that's a misread. i don't think he was given a speech about executive orders he would issue. he was talking about the kind of policies he would put in his presidency behind. presidential leadership matters. it's a reason why many of these issues haven't been solved, we don't have presidential leadership. what mitt romney outlined in the specific ideas is part of a bigger idea about how to modernize legal immigration and i think the speech that he gave last week aligning out what a
4:56 am
modern 21st century legal immigration system looks for -- looks like for america i think was excellent. >> senator, do you regret saying six, seven months ago under no circumstances will i be on the presidential ticket? >> what i've decided is not to discuss it anymore. it's a no win situation. >> everybody asks you about it. >> more importantly, i think that mitt romney deserves the space to make a good decision which he's always made in his life. mitt romney's life -- one of the things that people don't realize is or should realize more is he's a very successful person. not just a successful political figure and he's successful because he's always made good decisions. he'll make another great decision here. >> we made a great decision booking you on this monday. his new book is called "an american son" check it out. he's an american senator. marco rubio. >> see you on radio in a little while. >> that's right. >> meanwhile, david hasselhoff brought to you by justin timberlake what's going on here? the hoff is here next hour with us. details. >> two lifeguards. then if the supreme court shoots down obamacare who is to blame? many say it's the republicans.

they're bunch of right wing hack, but at least they saw the light. curious to me that the only ones who are questionable of how they're going to vote with the conservatives. based on ideology, the liberals that have been put on the court in the past are considered pure. but the conservatives for some reason are the ones that have a problem, i actually love the supreme court as an institution. i love the building 6789 i love everything it stands for. i had a chance to work with chief justice roberts and justice aledo when they were going through the process. i learned more about it. i think that each of them is weighing this on the merits and they will come out, make a decision and remember when president bush lost that big terrorism case. he was not happy about having lost it. he disagreed with it. but i remember in the rose garden his statement was, the supreme court ruled today. i disagree with their decision, but i will abide by it. >> alisyn: isn't this more complicated because it is considered the crowning achievement of president obama's legislative agenda for his first term? >> it's more complicated for them on the political side of
5:06 am
things. also just on substance. america is look for some solutions on health care. some people think it should be more government focused. many people think it should be more free market focused and that could help solve it. politically, if this is their crowning achievement and even if the court upholds it, you still have about 60% of the people, give or take, that say they don't like it at all. so they have had four years of working on legislation and passing legislation that one, he never talks about in any of his speeches. and two, is already so unpopular. and three, if it does get upheld, that will galvanize mitt romney's forces because he said he will work it repeal it. >> brian: the other thing on the docket is the arizona immigration law, which essentially is pretty impactful. they talk about carrying around paperwork that if you're somebody without citizenship, you should be carrying around paperwork that shows you belong here and tells people you can't go get a -- you can not hire somebody who is an illegal immigrant.
5:07 am
they have to have paperwork that, will be illegal to apply for that job. very strict rules in illegal immigration. >> right. they will say, governor jan brewer and other officials in arizona, they will say that they did a terrible job at communicating what was in the bill because what is not in the bill is what's gotten a lot of attention. for example, a lot of people might think that in the arizona bill, you can just be walking down the street having done nothing and just because look a little funny, i can pull you over and ask for your papers and give you a ticket. that's actually not that's what in the bill. that's another reason why i like the supreme court. because they are so measured and not swayed by cable news. they actually read the decisions. they think things through and know the law. when they write about this, it will be definitive. >> steve: they could come out as early as 10:00 o'clock this morning with arizona, healthcare. about plus, it's gigantic week in washington. looks like eric holder could be held in contempt. they have to act on the federal student loan deal. they have a deal. >> there is a deal that president obama is not
5:08 am
necessarily -- he wants a do nothing congress. a deal is to be made. the other one is a highway bill. if they don't reach a deal on that, i believe they'll do another extension. >> steve: this could be -- what was it? i read in the "washington post" -- >> most important week of president obama's -- that people look back, once we're through with the election and say, that was the week or that was the moment. it's hard to say now, but with hindsight 20/20, most likely this will be the week. >> steve: this is the week and what does the president do yesterday? >> golfing. >> steve: why not? he didn't have a fund-raiser. >> he didn't golf saturday. there is that. >> brian: what is going on there to allow -- not that somebody shouldn't be allowed to cool down. >> they don't care. they think anybody complaining about him golfing is a ridiculous person, even though it's hard to swallow, a lot of their criticism because they're the ones that complained about president bush golfing.
5:09 am
but bush is the one that benched himself when it came to golfing because he thought it was the wrong thing to do when he asked men and women to put themselves in harm's way. he didn't golf then. but he's back with a vengeance in post-presidency. >> alisyn: let's talk about creative suggestion, that the obama campaign has come up with for thousand fund raise. on the official web site, they have suggested basically a what you can do if you're getting married, instead of registering for another toaster or vase. >> steve: which you may need. >> alisyn: you may have your guests contribute to the obama campaign. there are, let's face it, all sorts of weddings where they ask to you contribute to charities. what do you think of that? >> a charity would be something worthwhile. in fact, i did this yesterday through the wounded warriors project for a wedding that's coming up later this week for a friend of ours that we're excited about. i think on the white board, when they're in the conference room and talking about, how can we
5:10 am
get people donate to this campaign? we need more money what, would be a great idea? so they have a brain storm and put it on the white board and they say that is a perfect idea. my friend is getting married and it sounds like a great idea. instead of voicing it out loud and running it by a few people, it comes out and they make fun of it. >> steve: what would happen if say your friend is getting married and you get them a card that says, i have donated $100 to the election of barak obama. it turns out the person is a republican. >> that happened on "the five" when bob beckel donated on the names of others. >> brian: a lot of powerful people showed up, including karl rove and mitt romney. one of the people that stole the show, condoleeza rice. what can you tell us, if anything, about the speech that evidently everyone is talking about? >> condoleeza rice is one of those people where brian, this
5:11 am
might not ever happen to you. you go into a meeting and starts speaking and everyone shuts up. when she speaks, what i've noticed is that everyone turns and listens 'cause her intellect, grace, ability to make an argument is so effective and she's such an attractive person. she's so fun and plays a lot of golf as well. she's very successful person who overcame a lot. had wonderful parents, has written two books already since she left the white house. and i think that if i were there and i wanted to learn a little bit more about foreign policy and the challenges that are facing america right now and what's to come in the next five to ten years, there is nobody i would like to hear from more than condoleeza rice. >> alisyn: she should be on the ticket. >> i'm sure there are a lot of people who would like to see that. i would be very comfortable with her there. she has said she does not want to get into politics. >> steve: do you think that was an audition? >> no. i think that was showing her support for the republicans and for mitt romney in particular and the other thing it showed me is a lot of people felt that
5:12 am
romney would not be able to pull together the factions of the republican party, the wide factions after that bruising primary. but he has. in utah this past weekend showed that. >> brian: alisyn thinks she'll be on the ticket. >> steve: no, she thought she would get a ticket. >> i think they might ask her to be ambassador to somewhere important. >> steve: all right. dana perino, always a pleasure. you can catch her today at "the five" on "the five" at 5. >> brian: she'll be playing herself. >> alisyn: as america waits for the supreme court to rule on observe eastboundcare, people are gambling more than just their health insurance on this decision. peter johnson, jr. is rolling the dice on the odds for us. >> steve: dana perino, why don't do you this tease? >> then great news people, the largest plant is in the works. the bad news, it will vaporize

i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.

welcome to the uppernet. verizon. >> steve: well, america is tuned in watching, waiting and making their own predictions on the supreme court ruling on the president's healthcare law. it could come out later today. our next guest has been offering his prescription for truth since the controversial health care law passed. peter johnson, jr. is here to place the odds on whether obamacare survives the week. >> the world is really watching this. and congress and the presidential candidates and doctors and nurses and patients and the farm industry and the insurance industry are saying, what's going to happen? what's going to happen to the individual mandate?
5:17 am
we don't have betting in the united states on political issues, but in europe we do. there is an organization called in trade in ireland. they're laying bets their contracts, their puts and sells and that kind of thing, people but the beth on it. what they're saying is 75% chance that it goes down in the supreme court. >> steve: a lot of that -- >> obamacare is invalid. >> steve: a lot of people wagered a larger number in it being struck down after they heard the questions that were being asked by the actual justices. >> that's right. before that, the odds were much, much different. but after the arguments. but we can't be deceived by arguments. i've done dozens of appellate arguments around the country. you can't be deceived by what the judges are asking. but we also have to understand, let's talk about judge kennedy. judge kennedy sided with the conservatives 75% of the time. and he is considered the critical swing vote in this. so when we look at the odds, i
5:18 am
would say in terms of peter's odds with the individual mandate being successful, about the individual mandate going down, the supreme court saying we're killing this, this is a violation of the commerce clause, i say 3-2. so i say the chances are the individual mandate goes down. the question is, when the individual mandate goes down because of what's called the severability clause or lack of severability clause, meaning whether the rest of it can go forward or not go forward, what happens to the rest of obamacare? what happens to the rest of the 2700 pages? and so it was argued that if individual man it is date fall, which is the heart of it, which is the government's rationale for it and its ability to finance the whole thing, ordering people to be in health care, a lot of people say the entire thing goes down. will the supreme court really start to pick apart certain sections or take the bold step
5:19 am
and say, listen, individual man it is date is gone. it's unconstitutional and the whole thing is gone. >> steve: real quickly, a question for you, some democrats have already suggested that if the individual mandate or parts of the health care law are struck down, those guys on the supreme court are just being political. they're being political hacks. >> they've started that already. that will be the very divisive debate that goes on over the next few months in this country. jobs, number one. but healthcare, number two. this decision, whatever the supreme court rules, will put this debate four square back into the american forum. congress is going to have to act time and time again, whatever happens, whether all or part of it is upheld or not upheld, congress will be stepping back into this issue again. this issue is not over 'til it's over. this is in some wakes only the beginning. >> steve: we could find out 71 minutes from right now. >> we might.

she thought she could make it. that's been the case of a lot of people throughout the downtown jacksonville area. she had people come and pull her to safety. it made her commute to work a big issue and that's going to be the case throughout the rest of the day here in jacksonville as we try to recover from all that debbie dropped on us this morning. live in jacksonville. >> steve: thank you very much. what a mess. brian? >> brian: secretary of state hillary clinton stealing the show last week at a formal event donning stylish shades. what's really up with her newfound glitz and glamour? our next guest stays not a fashion statement, but a political one and they mean big moves for president obama's reelection campaign. michael goodwin voted for president obama in 2008. he's a fox news columnist. what do you think they're up to now in the white house? >> look, last week was a very unusual week for hillary clinton. she did an interview with james baker, one of her republican predecessors. she wrote an op ed for the "wall
5:46 am
street journal" about trade with russia and she took to this press conference wearing these cat glasses, was all fun. i say she was serious, she was fun, but she wasn't partisan. i believe this is part of a transition that eventually will have her replace joe biden on the presidential ticket. and the reason i say that is the president is in trouble. this is going to be a close election right now. things are not getting better. they're getting worse. the economy is not likely to get better. >> brian: obamacare is on the docket. >> absolutely. i think that the president is going to need a boost. hillary clinton can give him the boost. i think he would energize -- she would energize the democratic base. she would turn out more women for him, which is already an advantage. >> brian: this will back you up. look at this. the favorable rating for hillary clinton, the secretary of state who has been out of the political fray, 66%. unfavorable, unbelievely low 29%. biden, it's 42% favorable.
5:47 am
45% unfavorable. almost mirror of the president. here is what you're not factoring in. you're not factoring in that she could not be over, there might be a chance she could not be over that loss to president obama. not like the way that campaign went. why would she step in examine almost, for lack of a better word, bail him out? >> i don't think she wants to do it and i don't believe he wants to have her. but if he needs her, she can not say no. >> brian: really? >> if she has any hopes of ever running on the democratic ticket as president, she has to be a good soldier for barak obama. if he asks her and she says no and he loses, she's finished. she will not get the nomination the next time. if she helps him and they lose together, at least she was a good soldier. but i'll tell you one more thing, brian, her help for him would come not just with women, but among blue collar work in some of the swing states, pennsylvania, ohio, michigan, wisconsin, the industrial powerhouses. that's where she did very well
5:48 am
against him when they ran. he's doing very badly there now. she could be the ace in the hole for those swing states. >> brian: she would really have to love her party and her husband has to be there. >> i think she loves the ambition more than the party. >> brian: i'll sean radio. 12 minutes after the top of the hour. the moment that everybody has been waiting for. david hasselhoff brought to you by justin timberlake. i want on a kidding. hoff here next. but next, bill hemmer for what's on the top of the hour on his show. i know you're golfing this afternoon. what are you doing before that? >> we're waiting. this is serious stand by mode. >> brian: right. you got two hours to fill. >> you could have immigration, you could have healthcare, you could have neither. pam bondy, the florida a.g. she was in court for arguments three months ago. she's back today live. how are the court rule? what did she hear during those arguments? we'll go back for that. immigration stand. we could find out. muslim brotherhood in egypt, how
