it is saturday, april 27. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us. she is the mother of the boston bombers but this mom may not be so innocent. how she landed on a terror watch list and now she's a person of interest. all the details ahead. >> good morning. i'm mike in for tucker. this piece of a landing gear found wedged between the ground zero mosque site has been sitting the for nearly 12 years. or is it all a hoax? >> it's the interview that made mike jerod speak first. >> what are you doing? >> what am i not doing? >> how are they going to
get enough material? >> i wouldn't call that speechless. he knew exactly what he was doing. this morning mike's coanchor joins us live. we'll talk about ryan lochte and how hot he really is. "fox & friends" hour one begins right now. >> welcome into "fox & friends" on this saturday morning. >>alisyn: the best thing about that, you're very funny. obviously everybody who watches us knows you have a great sense of humor, but it's rare that you are caught laughing hysterically on camera, and you were doing that. >> not so much at him. just the concept of his reality show that people would be tuning in to that. i love the woman i work with, shanelle.
>>clayton: we'll ask him about ryan's speedo later. >>alisyn: let's get to headlines. more than a decade after the september 11 attacks, a landing gear from possibly a plane that hit the world trade center was just found blocks away. this aircraft part was found wedged between two buildings, one of which is the controversial ground zero mosque site. "the new york post" reports police suspect this may be a hoax and it was lowered to the site by a rope. the piece is five feet long by three feet wide, between the two buildings less than 18 inches. but commissioner kelly says it is possible it could have stayed hidden all these years. >> -- realize the chaos that existed on this street, i think it's unfathomable. not that surprising, very,
very confined. no construction work went on. >>alisyn: investigators plan to check monday for human remaims and other evidence at the scene. >> is president obama weakening his red line threat about the use of chemical weapons in syria? aides say intelligence shows the syrian president bashar assad used them on his own people. the administration now says it needs more time to investigate who used them and how. >> number one, secure the chemical weapons before they fall into the wrong hands. that's the great threat. that's the big prize. destroy them forever so they can't be used against us or anyone else. secondly, contain this fighting so that the king of jordan does not fall. >>alisyn: more than half a million syrians have taken refuge in jordan which is a strong u.s. ally in the region. >> it is your move, mr. president. the house following the senate's lead in passing a
bill to end the f.a.a.'s furloughs of air traffic controllers, the bill now awaits president obama's signature. the bill lets the agency use money from less needed areas to end delays at airports across the country. the white house says it's just a band-aid. critics say president obama left them no other choice. >> the president was at one point given the option of being able to do what we're talking about right now across the board without having to do this piecemeal deal. he didn't want to take it. and he didn't want to take it because they wanted to have the tax increases across the board and not actually go through with the spending cuts. the problem is -- >>alisyn: the white house has been accused of playing politics and cherry-picking visible areas to make cuts forhe most impact. >> tell us about sports, clayton. >>clayton: it was day one of the nfl draft. it came and went without manti te'o or gino smith hearing their names called.
they didn't wait too long. on day two, manti te'o was taken by the san diego chargers. they traded up to get him. i wonder if someone will let him now that the san diego chargers don't exist. sorry. the very next pick, the new york jets took quarterback gino smith. the move could spell the end of mark sanchez. >>alisyn: everybody just likes gino. >> a look at the forecast. >> a nice weekend finally temperature-wise for almost everybody across the country. places across the north have not hit 60 degrees all year u today. we've got 70's here. that means rapid snow melt around minnesota and north dakota. they will be looking at flooding by monday and tuesday. temperature-wise we're
looking pretty good. just a little precipitation, one area, areas across the southeast where we'll continue to see rain showers and a little bit of severe weather. west coast, spectacular. severe weather across the big bend of texas. maybe wind and hail. the rest of the weekend, rain will spread and linger across the southeast. the northeast, a spectacular weekend, the nicest one we've had all spring long. parts of the north, same thing with these niece temperatures. we have a lot of flooding to talk about and we'll be talking about that for much of the rest of the morning. >> let's turn our attention to boston because new information has been revealed, and pretty fascinating information. we were talking about the mother of the family last week on the show and what did she know and when did she know it. it appears now she has been placed into the realm of persons of interest, and
she was on the terror watch list about 18 months before all of the bombings unfolded. she was put on the c.i.a.'s watch list 18 months ahead of time. >> we were wondering where the 26-year-old was radicalized. maybe he was radicalized inside his own home speaking with his own mom. >>alisyn: we know she was on the terrorist watch list. russian authorities alerted the c.i.a. and the f.b.i. that they had some grave concerns about tamerlan, her 26-year-old son. but it turns out in the same conversations they said they also were concerned about her, that she had now adopted an extremist or militant, as they called it, form of islam. >>clayton: what they were most concerned about, the russian authorities, were then returning to their country to sort of foment terrorism back home. they initially tried with the c.i.a., but then the f.b.i. looked at the family, examined the mom, examined the sons and found no ties to terrorism
whatsoever. and further, the russians asked the f.b.i. to look into his mother as well because of concerns that they were religious militants and would come back and do something back home. >> she has upseptember a lot of people in -- she has upset a lot of people in this country. i know she lost a son and is distraught. >>alisyn: that's generous of you. it sound like she hasn't been thinking clearly for a long time now. >> she lost a son and a 19-year-old she'll probably never see again. let's play what she said and talk about it. here she is. >> [inaudible] in america now. why did i even go there? why? i thought america is going to protect us, our kids, is going to be safe. [inaudible] like any reason. but it happened. america took my kids away
from me. only america. what have you done with my son? he was alive. why did they need to kill him? why didn't they send him to ] whatever. kill him? why? why did they have to kill him? they got him alive, right. [inaudible] in their hands? >>alisyn: why did they have to kill him? >> maybe because he planted bombs and killed people. >>alisyn: perhaps somebody should let her know her other son ran over him. >>clayton: she thinks they were framed. yet her son, according to reports, admitted to authorities that in fact they were responsible. inter gators said they were the ones who committed the bombings and she's blaming america. khraeup -- >>clayton: she said america was unsafe for her
sons. no. america is unsafe because of her sons. >>alisyn: i feel very unkind thoughts when i watch her and her rail against the united states as opposed to taking some responsibility, opening her mind to the possibility that her sons wreaked incredible havoc on boston. >>clayton: when they investigated her criminal record, looked at her past, she had been caught back in july of -- june 2012 in massachusetts for shoplifting. thousands of dollars of women's clothing she ripped off from a lord & taylor. lord & taylor was the surveillance footage that ended up leading to the capture -- >> this family ended up taking subsidy from the federal government as well. >>alisyn: we'll talk about how they were on and off welfare throughout their entire time here. meanwhile, let's talk about whether or not the brothers
had any help with planning their attack on boston and what they planned to do next. police commissioner ray kelly, here of new york, believes, and he said the investigation has shown that they did plan to come to times square and that they were planning to have some sort of attack here in new york. >>clayton: initially we heard reports they were going to come here to party after the boston bombings. >> this was from about a year ago. that's dzhokhar, the 19-year-old, in times square with buddies. now i think a couple of these buddies are in custody being questioned. >>clayton: there is one guy, this red-bearded individual, which according to the daily mail, is being sought after. this third individual, the uncle has talked about this individual as perhaps being involved in some capacity, helping to radicalize the brothers. he has not been found yet. >>alisyn: those two young men who you saw there, whose faces you could see,
that we hadn't blurred out, they were arrested in new bedford, massachusetts. they are immigrants from kazakhstan, i believe. >> keur -- kirzygstan. >>alisyn: or some part of russia. they are questioning them to see if this visit in times square was some sort of advanced plot. >>clayton: more on that coming occupy. plus this: a police officers fired for driving drunk now suing claiming control is a disability. does he have a case? >>alisyn: then they voted to stick you with mandatory health care. but now members of congress may be exempt. it's business as usual in washington. we'll take a closer look at this for you. ♪

i'm going on break! the more you bundle, the more you save. now, that's progressive. >> members of congress who rallied behind obamacare may be getting a taste of their own medicine. reports that some lawmakers and staffers seeking exemptions from the rest of the law americans face. why should they be exempt? tammy bruce is a radio show host. good morning. congress decided to go against the will of the people, the laws of the land, that they would somehow be above the rest of us. i find this shocking. >> finally, though, we can report -- and it's thrilling there's been some bipartisanship agreement -- that both the republicans and democrats agreed they should not have to experience obamacare.
the problem is of course they've pushed us all through to this. we know that there are problems. we know it is not what they said it would be. and now you've got harry reid and john boehner agreeing that they and their staffs shouldn't have to be subjected to this. now, it is, of course, putting themselves above the law. it's not the first time they've done it. they have also just last week effectively, many say gutted that insider trading law. it was a big deal last year; right? why you'd have to pass legislation for you to have to follow the law is in and of itself an indication of a major problem. and now with the legitimacy of this government, we've got about a 10% approval rating for congress, and the legitimacy of obamacare, their attempt to get out of this is quite shocking. >>clayton: let's get specific about what unfolded. according to reports, they got together in some confidential talks to try to figure out how they themselves could be exempt from which portions of the obamacare law? all of it?
>> what they're worried about is is the cost of the premiums, that they'll go up. they're worried about what they're terming is a brain drain. that younger people who right now get their health care paid for by the federal government, if they have to go into the exchanges and do what all the rest of us have to do with obamacare it's going to cost too much, and some of those younger aides will leave congress. what they're doing is -- and you'll notice euphemisms. they don't need a waiver from obama and they're not going to do legislation. everyone is being careful with the word. they want the office of personnel management to tell them they can either keep what they have now or that the federal government will pay everyone's health care for them. we would also, of course, love that. we have to pay it ourselves. and already in maryland, which has been very gung-ho with obamacare, premiums there expected to go up 150%. do you remember, clayton, what it was supposed to do?
>>clayton: it was going to lower premiums. >> now it will be the opposite. >>clayton: let's see a statement from harry reid's spokesperson. there'll there is not now talk of exempting members of congress from the affordable care provisions that apply to any public or private employer involving health care. any way to parse that? >> they will say they are not exempt but they won't have to pay for it. if you're looking at our issue, the exchanges won'ting going into effect because nobody knows how to do it for another year. small businesses, they were supposed to be helped by having skpaepbgz and options -- having exchanges and options. now there will be no option. people will fall into the private market. people with preexisting conditions further making
premiums go up or they'll have a horrible policy and have no choice. what congress wants is to not have to deal with the financial burden. that's what all of this has come down to. >>clayton: i have a feeling congressional approval ratings will go up further. >> this again is about congress following the law and the legitimacy of this government. and if they don't have to do it, maybe it's a statement that maybe none of us should have to do it. >>clayton: tammy bruce, radio talk show host and fox news contributor. thank you. he was feeling the perils of nature, so he packed his swiss army knife, now one fifth grader suspended for carrying it on a school-sponsored trip. >> military family of the year? the mansfields. the mansfields. join us live.

disability act. the police department won't comment on the pending lawsuits. ali. >>alisyn: it's a program called "our military kids" and it's helping children of military families take on tough times while their parents are serving overseas. joining us now is our military kids pick for the 2013 military family of the year, abigail and bethany mansfield. congratulations on being picked as the military family of the year. abigail, how did this happen? >> bethany and i applied for grants for our military kids which supplies $500 grants for military kids with a parent overseas or wounded. they give them grants to do an extra curricular idea to help take the distraction
off the missing parent. bethany and i did vocal lessons and corey applied for drama camp. >>alisyn: that is terrific. you guys applied for these grants. they're $500. people in the past, kids in the past have done things like take soccer class or gone to a summer camp, have been tutored. you can do whatever you want. bethany, why did you guys decide to do voiceless sons? >> me and abigail are very much into musical theater. that moves what we want to do for our future careers. not only do we have a passion for it, we got the experience and opportunity to do it. now we're somewhat prepared for our future careers so it's really great. >>alisyn: that's terrific. i don't know if you guys know that, but our military kids have provided more than 37,000 grants to kids like you totaling more than

>> what am i doing? my philosophy is if you're a man at night, you've got to be a man in the morning. >> ryan, good luck to you. we'll be watching. >> thank you. [laughter] >> how are they going to get enough material? >> what did he say? i'm a man at night? >> i'm a man at night and a man in the morning. [laughter] >> look out. then she started snorting on the air. >> that was ryan lochte interview and mike jerrick. >>clayton: sheinelle, mike's coanchor who couldn't keep it together. sheinelle jones, great to see you.
>> good morning. i couldn't keep it together. thanks. >>clayton: that's kind of what our show is every single day. i don't know why it's getting such national attention. >> exactly. locally people kind of understood that but nationally people were saying what is this? who are these people? you know what i mean? can i start with saying that i blame you, mike. it's completely your fault. clayton, i used to work with you. you're guilty of doing it too. you can feel when you're about to kind of get the giggles. normally your coanchor will keep you in. mike goes right in for the kill. oh yeah. the timing of his jokes, and i lost it. >>alisyn: you're so right, sheinelle. they bring it over the top. also may i say that the reason why this video has gone viral. sheinelle, you couldn't stop commenting on ryan lochte's abs and his hotness and how fabulous he was.
>> i mean, because he is cute. the thing is he's a likable guy, and we all recognize that. when i saw the story about his response to us -- trust me, i was nervous when he said i'm not responding to haters. i'm not a hater. it was just funny. >>clayton: you were a lover. here's another inside. the leopard-skinned speedo. sheinelle also cracked a rib. i don't think people knew that. her rib was killing her. >> yes. all morning long, my back was killing me. every time i would laugh, it would start to hurt. again, mike, he would make me laugh. as you can see, i was grabbing my back. i think people thought i was laughing so hard i hurt my rib. >>clayton: there was a moment and a question when
you asked him is there a line a woman could say to you when you go out on a date or you're out in a club or something. >> mike asked it. >>clayton: i'll ask the same question of you. if ryan lochte tried to hit on you, what would he need to say to try to rope in sheinelle jones? >> i would say "hey cuteness." and honestly, that's all it would take. >>alisyn: when you, mike, posed the question to ryan, it stumped him, and that is part of what you guys were laughing at. >>mike: the other night he was on letterman and letterman asked him what is your best stroke -- you know, in the pool. he didn't have an answer. and letterman goes is there anybody we can call. >>alisyn: then he says "my mom." >>mike: one of the reasons i was laughing is because i'm jealous of the
guy. do you know what this guy's life is like? wherever he goes he's surrounded by beautiful women. and i know it's all over for me. that's why i'm jealous. >> his abs are ridiculous. he's good-lookin'. he's so cute. >>clayton: in the interview he says i don't have to come to women. they come to me. >> i didn't realize he has this reputation of having these, let's just say empty answers or perhaps i would have been prepared. i didn't see it coming. obviously you can imagine mike's expression off camera when we get these awkward pauses. >>alisyn: quickly, when he says the haters are going to be out there and hate, both of your responses to that is what? >>mike: i'm doing it because i was jealous. now sheinelle and i have this reputation of making fun of people when they
can't hear us anymore. first it was the kardashians. now it's this. i want the world to meet this woman i get to work with every day, and that is sheinelle. she is fantastic. >> if ryan is watching, he is completely welcome. we'd love to talk to him again. he would see we're totally likable. we just like to have a good time. we laugh at ourselves more than anything. are you kidding me? all in good fun. >>clayton: make sure he brings a translator. >>alisyn: sheinelle, great to meet you. >>mike: see you monday. >>alisyn: i love her. >>clayton: so natural. >>alisyn: i feel for her. >>mike: being with me. >>clayton: that's how rick feels working with us. >>mike: don't you think ryan lochte should never do an interview without it being a two-person interview. >>clayton: bring somebody else to fill in the void. you've got to go to youtube
and watch clips of his interviews. >> guys, take a look at the weather map. talk a bit about what's going on. a dangerous situation going on across areas of the north. all that there is snow covered. still places about a foot and a half of snow. there's been very cold across the northern plains. we're warming up. yesterday into the 60's. today 71 degrees in fargo. snow is melting rapidly and flowing into the red river. the red river flows into lake winnipeg. we're going to be talking about flooding here. the waters as of last night or early this morning is at 24 feet, getting into moderate flood stage. think we're going to crest around wednesday at 38 feet. that's below the record, fortunately, but at 38 there's a lot of land that gets flooded. that's one big story we're going to watch over the next few days. the rest of the country, northeast looking spectacular. the nicest day probably that we will have seen all
spring long. everybody into the 60's. we'll see plenty of sunshine. the southeast we've got storms. quite a bit of rain across parts of tennessee especially into kentucky and we'll see a few thunderstorms firing this afternoon across parts of louisiana, arkansas, and mississippi. temps back to the west, pretty warm, 83 in abilene. to the northern plains, temps finally nice. we have to deal with the rapid snow melt and flood and muddy conditions. out across the west, another spectacular day. tucson 92. our first triple-degree readings across the colorado river valley. guys, back to you inside. >>clayton: are you excited for that? >>alisyn: let's get to your headlines. the new jersey man arrested for bringing home made explosives on a train is speaking out this morning. he says he made fireworks, brought them on a new jersey train and then detonated them in upstate
new york. his roommate alerted police. the f.b.i. searched his apartment and confiscated gun powder. the 27-year-old said he never met any harm. >> i did something really dumb. i'd like to those nameless commuters that i didn't know. i will never do anything like this again. i will be sure to stay away from anything that combusts. >>alisyn: that's a good plan. police arrested him on the same day as the boston bombings, but they say he is not a threat. here's something you don't see every day. an alligator hazard at a p.g.a. tournament. the gator slowly approaching an official at the classic in new orleans. the official slowly backed up. apparently this gator is a frequent visitor to the course and has been nicknamed tripod. >>mike: tripod?
>>alisyn: yeah. the world mourning the death of arguably the greatest country singer of all time, the legendary george jones. ♪ we had a good thing >>alisyn: his voice is so beautiful, so evocative, it makes you want to cry. jones passed away at a hospital in nashville. jones had number one hits. in five decades he won two grammys, was inducted into the country music hall of fame in 1992. fellow singer alan jackson wasted no time dedicating a performance to the legend. >> to my friend george jones, greatest country singer of all time. >>alisyn: i believe it was alan jackson who said if we have had -- what dolly parton says, my heart is absolutely broken. george jones was my all-time favorite singer and one of my favorite people in the world. my heart goes out to nancy and all of his family and
friend. george jones was 81 years old. he had such a beautiful voice, we should play "he stopped loving her today." it seems appropriate. >>clayton: for all the young people that aren't familiar with george jones, go to itunes and download his greatest hits album. >>mike: yesterday we had billy ray cyrus on, the first person out of his mouth george jones and he didn't know george died. he died 20 minutes later. >>clayton: coming up, the boston bombers said they hated america but had no problem living on the taxpayer's dime. >>mike: a popular daily deal. what you need to know if you're one of the 50 million people at risk.

>>alisyn: sources reveal the boston terror suspects and their family received food stamps and other welfare. >>clayton: how does someone investigated by the f.b.i. joined up by welfare. let's put this out there. we know that the older brother -- the family in general had been put on this watch list. the russian authorities contacted the c.i.a. they were looked at. it was a massive, massive watch list, upwards of 754,000 people on this watch list. but if you're on that list, how are you able to receive government benefits on top of being on that same terrorist watch list? it doesn't make any sense
to me. >> it doesn't and it doesn't make sense to the victims and taxpayers to be receiving taxpayer-funded benefits. i'll tell you why it happens in massachusetts, because in massachusetts social security numbers are not required to receive many of the benefits. to get housing, you cannot be denied if you don't give a social security number. to get cash assistance and food stamp assistance, you can just say -- sign a piece of paper and say i'm applying for a social security number and they'll let you start getting the assistance, and then they never follow up on it. we're kind of using the honor system in massachusetts when it comes to giving out taxpayer-funded benefits. recently in the legislature, i fought for legislation to require people to give social security numbers before they receive any taxpayer assistance, and that was voted down. >>alisyn: so here's a few more details. as recently as last year, the older brother, tamerlan, and his american wife and their
three-year-old child were on welfare. we know that the parents and the younger brother, dzhokhar, received welfare and food stamps on at least three separate occasions for a year or two-year long stints. since your legislation was voted down, what's the answer here? >> i'm certainly going to keep fighting for it. it's been very hard in massachusetts to get any welfare reform passed. unfortunately, our governor has taken the stance that we need to protect the privacy of these terrorists over supporting the victims and the taxpayers here in massachusetts. and is giving out very little information about what welfare benefits they received. i think these people, the victims, deserve to know whether or not they were funding the lifestyle of a terrorist who was over in dagestan for six months learning how to kill americans. >>clayton: please keep us updated on your fight there
and mean spirited. joining us to talk about this, our legal team arthur aidela. explain what this is. no matter how long you've been married in the state of florida, you have to pay alimony the moment you get divorced for the rest of your life. >> if you've had a short-term marriage, let's use a round number like say six years. you have a short-term phaeurpbl and get divorced, the person who makes the most money could have to write you a check for the rest of your life. this sometimes comes across as punitive. that is not the purpose of alimony. it is to help get the un-moneyed spouse back on. usually the woman. >> i don't think that is true anymore. these laws are so old, number one, they were meant for women back in the day who didn't go to college, who didn't go to graduate school, stayed home.
so, therefore, at 50 years old after a 20-year marriage, the guy takes off with a 20-year-old, she can't get a job -- >> that's still happening. >> welcome to 2013. we've got ipads. time to change the law. >> i just did a divorce for a couple who were married 47 years. you can't tell me you can't pay that woman for the rest of her life. who's going to hire her? >> we agree. start laughing. we never agree. but a couple married six years and a couple married 47 years is very different. the law is saying the judge now has discretion. it's not just black or white. there's a lot of gray. >>mike: it's not a blanket decision case by case. >> it's not case by case. they say we'll decide how long you're going to -- >> the woman is 60 years old, you get alimony for 20 years. when she's 80 and about to
hit the boards, alimony will go away. >> there is a huge segment of society where women between 50 or 60, no one is going to hire them and no one will remarry them. if your spouse isn't going to pay your alimony, you know who will be paying it? the taxpayers will be paying it. >>mike: what's the solution? >> you have to have lifetime alimony in certain circumstances. >> limited. limited. limited. limit. not a blanket rule. i'm not talking about men and women. we're talking about the person who gets up -- who's here at 6:50 in the morning -- >> i'm here at 6:50 in the morning. >> correct. it doesn't matter about gender. >> if i married you -- >>mike: you two would get a divorce. >> florida and massachusetts are agreeing on this. that doesn't happen too

>>alisyn: good morning. today is saturday, april 27. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us. like mother, like son. new developments in the case of the boston bomber. their mother was also added to a terror watch list more than a year ago, and is now being called a person of interest. was she the one who radicalized her two boys? >>mike: i'm mike in for tucker. sorry, kids, no more strapless dresses. while we're at it, no dance at all. the principal who says those dresses are inappropriate, making a major decision that has parents fuming. plus do you share your personality with your pet?
what your dog's breed says about you. i like weiner dogs. >>alisyn: of course you do. >>clayton: "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. >>clayton: mike's not joking, the little dogs that you maybe put a sweater on during the winter, you're like paris hilton a little bit. we'll tell you what your personality in dog lingo says about you. >>alisyn: we have new information this morning about the boston bombing suspects including the fact that their mother was also added to a terror watch list. it wasn't just tamerlan who was on a terror watch list at the behest of russian authorities. russian authorities also tipped off the f.b.i. and the c.i.a. about this
woman, zubeidat tsarnaev. and they thought that she was more and more becoming an extremist, they said, and should be on a watch list. >>clayton: specifically they were worried about them being radicalized in the united states, going through some sort of process and coming back to chechnya, coming back to russia and fomenting some sort of violence back home. that's why russian authorities were relaying this information to the c.i.a. and the f.b.i. however, the f.b.i. found no ties at all to terrorism. they investigated the family, didn't find anything compelling about this. you should be reminded, when somebody says the terrorist watch list -- and i wasn't aware of how vast this thing is -- it includes hundreds of thousands of individuals. and so how can someone get on that airplane? how can someone fly when you're on this list? it is a massive net. >>mike: i think we should be tracking bad people, no question about it. but were these two boys radicalized? were they radicalized in came bridge or maybe it was
russia. maybe they were radicalized in their own home by their mother. >>clayton: if you listen to her -- she's in denial. in a press conference in russia, listen to this the other day when she's talking about her sons. she sounds unhinged. listen. >> [inaudible] my son in america now. why did i even go there? why? i thought america is going to, like, protect us, our kids, is going to be safe. but it happened. my kids! america took my kids away from me. only america. what have you done with my son? he was alive. why did they need to kill him? why didn't they send him to the -- you know, whatever? why did they kill him? why? why did they have to kill him? they got him alive; right?
he was in their hands. >>clayton: one of the reasons he's dead is your other son ran over him with a car. >>alisyn: in the course of trying to escape from the police. i wish some of the journalists said actually your other son probably killed him, one of the theories. also why did you have to go to america? we're wondering as well. it was your sons that made america less safe. furthermore, she's not really crying. she's beseeching people but not shedding tears. it is hard to know if she is sane. ifs hard to know if -- it's hard to know if those crocodile tears are an act. many more question. >>mike: people are saying if these are angry brothers, lone wolves. you look at this mom, are there more out there. you look at the 19-year-old with buddies at times square. two of those friends are in custody being questioned. >>clayton: i wonder what the mother would say to the fact that we were
protecting them. we were providing welfare checks to the older brother's family. america was helping them, giving them scholarships, providing for them. food stamps and waefrl for the family. -- food stamps and welfare for the family. >>alisyn: meanwhile, congressman mike rogers came out yesterday and said he feels that there are other suspects involved. he thinks the arrests are not over. >> i mean, i can't comment on any of the specifics of the design of the weapon that went off, but it is very clear when you take the totality of it that there was some outside counsel to these individuals on how to build and how to detonate. this was not something that we believe that on their own they came up with, that this design was on their own. again, that's why that six months in russia becomes so important and other persons of interest that i know investigators would like to talk to becomes very, very important here. >>clayton: furthermore, senator lindsay graham on
thursday, in an interview basically pointing out another individual could be tied to the older brother and helped in this whole process. the younger brother apparently only two weeks before the bombings was brought into the fold on this. it was probably largely the older brother. this guy, a man described by tamerlan's uncle only by the name of mesha. he is believed to believe a muslim convert who steered the older brother into this life of radical islam. he has not been identified by authorities. they believe he has a red long beard. they don't know much more about him at this point but this could be the third wheel. >>alisyn: we will keep you posted all morning long as to all the developments on this story. in the meantime, more news to tell you about. was a landing gear, a piece of landing gear from a plane that hit the world trade center found just blocks away more than a decade after the 9/11 attacks? that's what the new york post is reporting. it said police suspect this could be a hoax. plus what was found was this piece of an airliner,
and they think it could have been lowered down by a rope. this, by the way, is next to the controversial ground zero mosque site. plus the police commissioner say it could actually have stayed hidden all these years. >> if you see how confined this place is and realize the chaos that existed down here on this street, i think it's not that surprising. >>alisyn: investigators say they will check monday for human remains and other evidence on that piece of the jetliner. >> president obama says the use of chemical weapons in syria would cross a red line. the administration now says it need more time to investigate. u.s. intelligence shows syrian president assad did use them on his own people. many lawmakers say it is time for the u.s. to intervene. >> number one, secure the chemical weapons before they fall into the wrong
hands. that's the great threat. destroy them forever so they can't be used against us or anyone else. secondly, contain this fighting so that the king of jordan does not fall. >>alisyn: more than a half a million syrians have taken refuge in jordan. >> it doesn't get any lower than this. a new jersey mother convinces her own son that he has cancer so she can collect donations. susan stillwagon protected her young son had colon cancer and collected more than $1 million from family and friends. her own family were in shock to find out this was a hoax. >> she sounded very believable. >> completely flabbergasted. >> soccer team, the mothers were doing cupcake sales, selling bracelets, selling necklaces. >> the mother is facing multiple charges and is in a psychiatric unit. >> conan o'brien letting loose in the white house
pressroom. >> [inaudible] -- wrong with america. >> over here. over here. >>alisyn: our own chief white house correspondent ed henry gave conan a tour. this ahead of tonight's white house correspondents dinner in d.c. henry is the president of the white house correspondents association and conan o'brien will be hosting the event tonight. he also hosted in 19 # 5. >>mike: look at him in 1995. he was funny. >>clayton: who did it last year? >>mike: jimmy kimmel. >>clayton: was it funny? >>alisyn: it was okay. the president was very funny. >>mike: it will be tough with all the stuff that's gone on in the last few weeks for conan and the
president. >> here's your temps. we had a nice day for most everybody. temperature-wise, finally everybody into the 60's and 70's all the way toward the northern plains. we have some rain and this is the only big rain we have, and this is going to be plaguing us all weekend long. areas of the southeast, especially that tennessee river valley area. also severe weather. the west looking spectacular. tons of sunshine. really warming up across the southwest. the desert getting into the triple-digit range already this weekend, first time of the year. it looks like that heat is about to stay with us for much of this coming week. a couple spots of severe weather. the cold front will move down across parts of texas, around del rio. hill country could be seeing strong storms later this afternoon. that little bull's eye across parts of arkansas, mississippi, tennessee and a little bit of alabama as well. not talking about a big tornado outbreak. strong winds and maybe
hail. we've got 70's towards the northern plains. tomorrow minneapolis, 80 degrees, they'll take it. nice relief. pretty much everywhere starting to feel like spring for everybody. >>alisyn: fantastic. >>clayton: let's talk about school dances. a principal at a school has decided to ban strapless dresses at a school dance because it felt it was inappropriate to be showing that much. >>mike: it's a middle school. is that a factor? it factors in for me. i have two daughters, jessica and jill, and i was in charge of going to shop for their prom dresses. and i steered them toward the straps, thick straps. >>clayton: you steered them toward the amish section. >>mike: only lancaster county, pennsylvania. >>alisyn: there's been a lot of blow back against this principal of reddington, new jersey.
some parents were angry there was going to be this dress code enforced. then the principal got a threatening e-mail and last night posts school dance was canceled as a result of this threatening e-mail. >>clayton: it will go forward with straps. you've got to have straps on the dress in june for that dance to unfold. i'm trying to remember -- >>alisyn: i do remember. we dressed so much more conservatively than kids today. when i think back to, as an adolescent and teenage girl how we dressed, there was nothing revealing. we wore baggy levi's. we wore sneakers. we wore t-shirts. now when i see -- we can blame mtv -- >>clayton: they're not even wearing spaghetti tops. >>mike: it's all right there. >>clayton: stodgy?
is this a sign of the times. let's go back to going to dinner with a tie and coat on. >>mike: a new restaurant serving up a controversial new policy. >>alisyn: no kids allowed to eat at this eatry. should kids be at a sushi bar? i'm confused. >>clayton: congress plotting to exempt themselves from obamacare. congressman mike kelly weighs in on that nextç@2x@@

people, who came forward to express their concerns that the rollout of obamacare is stkpw-g to be messy -- is going to be messy, confusing and hard for states to comply with. >> i think those are very kind comments. it really is much worse than that. being back home in my home district, and i talk to people and i talk to employers, there is no clear path as to how this is going to unwind and unfold. i think senator baucus is right. this is a train wreck. a piece of legislation passed without people being involved in it. you couldn't find the president's finger prints on it. being passed in the middle of the night and then saying we've got to pass it first to find out what's in it. i think the results we're seeing today is the result of very bad legislation. >>mike: how do you fix this train wreck? >> it's law. i think we try to do some things now that make sense. in our conference last week we talked about the possibility of the slush fund that the h.h.s. has. they're using it pretty much for promotion, saying
let's take those funds and deploy them and put them into a fund that has been exhausted for those with preexisting conditions and use the money that way. it seems to make more sense for the american people. we voted over 35 times to try to repeal obamacare. that hasn't worked. what we can do is look at the spending and try to redirect some of the spending where it goes to those who need it the most and are our most vulnerable citizens. >>alisyn: let's talk about something outrageous that happened at the u.n. this weekend. that is a human rights counsel basically came out and blamed america for the boston bombings. he was unabashed in saying that america needs to look at its programs overseas and we basically brought this on ourselves. what do you make of this happening at the u.n.? >> first of all, it's outrageous. i want to thank ambassador rice. she tweeted. a two-sentence tweet isn't enough. we're circulating two
letters right now in congress to urge the president to stand up and demand. he made a wonderful speech in boston to start the healing process. but at a time when we're still healing for this man -- he's consistent. this is not the first time he's done that. we're asking the president to demand that he be taken off that u.n. council. in another letter to the secretary general, to also do the same. take him off the council. this guy is bad coffee. these people, sometimes you wonder where is it that they grew up? what is it they don't get? where they talk to americans, talk us down. he's been an american ambassador for a long time. he's an anti-israeli basher. this guy has gone out of his way to do outrageous things. we should be outraged as americans we're allowing this to happen. >>mike: representative, thank you so much for being with us. >>alisyn: the government considers hamas a terrorist group so why is one high school using a textbook that claims it is just a

and if it's wrong to blow up people on the streets of boston, it's wrong to blow them up on the streets of jerusalem. the same government requiring our grade school students to study the pillars of islam is telling us we can't tell our high school students thou shalt not kill because it is not a religious class. it is not about banning a book. it's about citizens having the right to question our government and say why do you continue to spend my tax dollars on curriculum that is so obviously biased and filled with errors. it protects china's one-child policy and all the human rights violations that goes with it. it calls the p.l.o. political organization and ignores the holocaust. that's what we're dealing with. >>clayton: julie, you've been portrayed as a bigot and right-wing extremist. but you want action on this. i'm a fan of facts, a fan of history. the fact that your son is being taught that palestine
is a state and, therefore, it would fall under some sort of tenet of agreeable warfare is factually wrong. >> right. beyond that, clayton, my son's curriculum teaches that the koran is the word of god as revealed to the prophet muhammad through the angel gabriel. as he began to preach the truth that god revealed to him, he endured persecution. i don't expect the government to teach anyone my faith, because they do a bad job at it. at the same time it's not reasonable to expect parents to tolerate our children being taught inaccuracies about our own faith while another is consistently presented with statements of facts. >>clayton: you had a number of meetings with the school districts and principals over the past years. where did that get you? what came up in those meetings? >> they basically said here's some paper work you can fill out, but i can tell you it won't do any
good because we have determined that it's not going anywhere. and in those meetings the curriculum directors went on to tell us that the 9/11 terrorists were no worse than the christian crusaders. this is the mind-set of the people we're dealing with. >>clayton: any movement since then removing the book? are you planning on home schooling your children in some capacity? how would you stop this? >> you know, we need help from our state officials. we need help from our elected officials, our governor. and, no, i shouldn't have to bring my student home because it is wrong that this continues to be taught to students throughout the state. and, by the way, the same people writing this curriculum are writing the standardized testing. so if you're not up on this, then even if you send your child to the best home school tutorials in the world, they still won't do
well on the standardized test because you've got to have this indoctrination. >>clayton: julie west is the parent of a freshman there with this textbook in nashville. keep us up to date on how this unfolds. thanks. coming up here on the show, a new restaurant serving up a controversial new policy. no kids allowed at the sushi bar. so is that fair? are you sitting on your couch watching the nfl draft wishing you could be in shape like the players? nicki fitness is here to show you how you can get show you how you can get nfl ready.

>>mike: where exactly is booty camp located? >> amazon.com. we're going to get rid of these footballs. the next move we're going to get serious. >>clayton: this is the line of scrimmage block kip. >> you've warmed up those inner thighs. line of scrimmage, block the kick. this is the inner thighs, quads, glutes. you're going to jump. ply metrics. our big finale, the big finale move, this is set to an eight-count. >>clayton: this is a burpee. do you know what a burpee? >>mike: a seed of some sort. >>clayton: what's a burpee? >> a great move. it works your arms and your
glutes. come down on the floor, do a plank, come back up, touchdown. we'll give that a try. it's an eight-count. do it with any music. 5, 6, 7, 8, down, pushup, take a bow. one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. >>clayton: from start to finish, how many minutes? >> if you repeat this three times and do about a minute for each move, you can get a 20-minute hard-core workout. that's like half time. >>clayton: if you missed the moves go to our website at foxnews.com. >> are -- my moves are on twitter, nikkifitness.

those tests. do you actually need the tests they give you in the hospital or at the doctor's office? urology department, you're over at winthrop university; is that correct? >> that is correct. >>mike: nice to have you here. doctors are ordering fewer tests. is that a good or a bad thing? >> this study didn't actually show that doctors were ordering fewer tests. what the study shows that came from johns hopkins, they hraobd at -- hraobd -- looked attors when they order tests. when they showed the prices of the tests to the doctors, those doctors ordered 9% fewer tests. >>mike: do you think in the past year doctors would order tests not knowing how much they cost? >> traditionally doctors don't know the tests they're ordering. you go on to the computer system. you request the laboratory
results you want for the patients. it is not typical for doctors to know what individual tests know. >>mike: i think in this country, you need those tests, i as a patient go you're the doctor. you should know what's right. what questions should i ask? do i really need that test? >> we are spending so much money on unnecessary health tests. in 2011 we spent $226 billion on unnecessary tests. and we all have to ask the question do we need the test. >>mike: and is it the best test i can take? >> correct. what we should remember is we should do a test in medicine if it's going to change our management. if we do the test and it is a test that's positive, we do x and if the test is negative, we do y. >>mike: you're the doctor. i didn't study. how do i know you're telling me the truth? >> the -- you don't know. the important thing is many of the tests are ordered in the e.r. and are often done
by the junior doctors. it is important we ask the right questions: are we doing the right test? is there a cheaper alternative. you can ask your doctor do i really need this test? there are some tests, x-rays that are a risk. we don't want to do a test that is not necessary. >>mike: what you're basically saying is don't be shy. speak up. thank you, doctor. >> we're heading into the busiest travel season of the year. we're helping you out with the best all-inclusive resort packages. >> speaking of money, the amount the government spends on absolutely nothing. it's a story you've got to hear to believe. hoo-hoo.

she was placed on a terrorist watch list in 2011 after russia told the c.i.a. she was becoming an islamic extremist. and the chopper crew that took this infrared video of dzhokhar tsarnaev, speaking out this morning about that manhunt. >> basically, in the middle of the boat. looking up with the hands like that. perfect silhouette of a human being. thankful that that citizen called in what he saw. >> alisyn: the troopers say they battled gusty winds and low cloud cover to get a look at the suspect. here is a strange story. was a piece of landing gear from a plane that hit the world trade center on 9/11 found just blocks away more than a decade after the attack? the "new york post" reports that police suspect it could be a hoax, and that this piece of the plane was lowered by a rope right near the controversial ground zero mosque site. the police commissioner says it could have been there all these years.

it will be there tomorrow as well. i think we have a chance of flooding localized at least if some of downpours are stalled out in one spot. to the north of it and south of it, you are pretty good. best of it, another spectacular day. it's heating up in the southwest. we'll see readings up to 108 this weekendbe across places like death valley. i should be hot. there is a relief for that. severe weather today around the big bend of texas. later on as a cold front moves through. but we'll also see a bullseye. that's where we see significant severe weather, mostly hail. and some strong winds. it's across the areas of arkansas, mississippi, tennessee, and a little bit of louisiana and northwestern part of alabama as well. over the next couple of days, significant rain. a few of the areas could see maybe three to four inches of rain. southern appalachian is the bullseye from that and we could see flooding from the rain. north looks good. temperature wise, everybody is great. especially toward far northern plains that will cause flooding or rapid snow melt.
we will see significant flooding in toward the red river. temperature wise, we are looking great. both today and tomorrow. right now you are waking up cooler in the northern plains. don't worry, it will jump up. >> mike: justin pugsh from holland. >> clayton: holland, pennsylvania. >> alisyn: is it near philly? >> mike: yeah. >> alisyn: thank you, rick. meanwhile, let's bring in governor huckabee right now. >> here i am. >> alisyn: a lot to talk to you about. new developments of what is happening with the boston bombing suspects. you know, the "washington times" had a theory they printed this week that part of the problem with identifying terror suspects is that the administration has a history of asking some, that some terms like "jihadist" be scrubbed from training manuals. do you see any connection between semantics and guys
travelling back and forth to russia? >> we need a reality check. there was terrorism at fort hood and the administration calls it workplace violence incident. we had terrorism in little rock with a radicalized muslim that changed his name and went to yesmember. killed a soldier in front of a recruiting station. still not called "terrorism." these are ways in which we mask what we're really facing. i don't know why we are afraid to call it what itsy. helps us to be better prepared. more alert. and also say to the world we're not going to tolerate terrorism from jihadist. >> mike: the word "jihad" next to somebody's name -- ding, ding, ding -- red flag? >> i would think. i would raise all kind of flags for all of us. i don't know if it's a quest to be politically correct or fear you might offend somebody. you know what? i'm offended. i'm offended as an americanbe that four people in boston were murdered and 200 were maimed for life.
that is offensive. quit being so careful not to offend people who blow others up. that is the least of my concerns. >> clayton: one of the issues, this dragnet, the massive terror watch list they were placed on, close to a million people end up on this list. does it do anything? i mean if you were in charge, could this be revised to be more specific to look for more specific terms? or more specific actionable intelligence? it seems to me -- i remember ted kennedy got put on the watch list. >> mike: right. >> clayton: a senator. >> just during spring break. [ laughter ] no, there is a -- obviously, this is something that is a work in progress. this is so new. i mean, really if you think about it, only within the last 12 years have we had to seriously focus on people milling around stores with us who could be plotting, blowing up the aisle next to us. but it may be that we have to start classifying -- by the way, it will never be perfect but saying on a scale of 1 to
10 this personbe is suspicious at a level 9 or suspicious at a level 3. in the case of these two, no one ever thought that the younger guy -- we have one of the guests on our show is his former soccer coach tonight. you know, who will say, we never saw this coming. this was not kind of person that you sort of see. i think that's what makes terrorism so dangerous. so that real careful terrorists are not the kind that go around -- >> i'm going blow you up! >> -- wearing a t-shirt saying, "i'm a jihadi and you're next." they blend in and one day they pull the trigger. >> mike: talk about the death of georgebe jones, someone close to your heart. >> we're big fans of his as well. we know you had him on the program. during the time you to him how impressed your dad would be that you were interviewing george jones. take a look at that. >> i told you before the show that my late father wouldn't have cared that i became
governor of my state or ran for president or had a television show. it would have impressed him amazingly if he knew i stood next to you with a guitar in my hand. >> that's the truth. i don't think my dad would have said oh, my son is the governor. but he would have said my son played guitar with george jones. george jones, you have to understand for those of white house love country music, he was in a league to himself. he was one of those endearing personalities. best thing i guess could be said, prolific nashville record producer told me one time he said if ten people sang the same song and george jones is one of them, the version you will remember is george jones' version. i thought about that. that is so true. he had that raw earthy, sympathetic voice that just evoked emotion and pathos like very few people are ever able to do. >> clayton: you got to meet a number of musicians on your show and country musicians
talk about their favorite artists, they talk about george jones. >> they use george jones and hank williams. classics that stand again in a league of their own. george jones was truly there. he was scheduled to have november 27, final farewell concert. i'd already planned go. i wasn't going to miss it for the world. and you know, it breaks my heart. his death was not expected. it was a stunning shocking death to his family. an certainly to all of white house are his dear fans. his wife nancy is one of the most beautiful ladies in the world. personally responsible for saving his life from a life where he always wasn't showing up for concerts because of a little problem within the bottle. but he got over that. he just -- a wonderful human being. >> alisyn: in fact, people disrate as frank sinatra, pete townsend, james taylor, said he influenced them and why they wanted to sing. the song "he stopped loving her today" i could cry. >> don't start talking about it, we'll all cry.
mike will cry and he's known for laughing not crying but we'll get him crying. the whole emotions. >> mike: i developed a reputation of just laughing after you're out of the room. >> i worry. when i leave it will be hilarity. >> mike: you rind lochte. stick around. the government considers hamas a terrorist group. >> clayton: so why is a high school using textbook to claim it's a political organization? the governor is goingbe to stick aroundbe to weigh in on that? >> alisyn: a stainle in the south. who would want to band seresucker? but that's coming up. more george jones. >> ♪ placed a wreath upon his door ♪ ♪ and soon they'll carry him away ♪ ♪ and he stopped loving her today ♪

>> alisyn: all right, here is a story we told you about last hour. group of parents in tennessee and they're concerned over one of the student's textbook called "cultural landscape" and they say it teaches their kids a lesson that some consider antisemitic. here is an excerpt from the book. >> clayton: if a palestinian suicide bomber kills several dozen teenagers in jerusalem restaurant is that an act of terrorism or wartime retaliation against army actions and israeli policies? mike huckabee is back with us. like you are leading the witness here in a way. first of all, factually incorrect talking about palestine as a state. >> yes.
>> clayton: that aside. leading the children down the line of assuming this is all politics and therefore it's okay for them to have killed individuals. >> it's situational ethics run amok. i'm glad you brought up the fact palestine has never been a state. it's not a government. until 1962, yasser arafat coopted the term forked a call islamic arabs that term would have meant jews. go back and watch "exodus" with paul new month. that he was palestinian, jewish. that was considered if you lived in the region. nothing to do with a government or state. but more importantly to stay there are occasions -- what they are asking, are there occasions when it's okay to murder people? that is a horrible question to ask not just kids, horrible question for adults. >> mike: they bring up the crusades, too. >> clayton: downplaying the role of catholicism, and christianity and judaism. but also then, promoting the idea of marxist socialism. this mom whom we had on the
show early this morning, julie west, painted as a bigot and right wing extremist. let's listen to her. >> it's asking hey, why might it be okay to kill israeli students? this group says it's okay, if it's wrong to blow up people on the streets of boston, it's wrong to blow them up in restaurants in jerusalem. it's not about banning a book. this is about citizenning having the right to question our government and say why do you continue to spend my tax dollars on curriculum that is so obviously biased and filled with errors? >> that mother should run for school board. she has more intelligence singularly than school board of her district does. what is tragic is parents paying taxes for the children's schools are incredibly and increasingly forced to spend more of their money to put their kids if private schools or christian schools to protect them from this kind of nonsense. high time to say we are not
going to fund this. we are simply not. this will push us to voucher system that every parent decides what curriculum you want for your children. you should have that right. nobody ought to be forced to sit through a classroom and be forced to have a textbook that tells you that there are acts of terrorism that can be justified because they can't. >> mike: she would be a good guest on your show. >> greatest guest. if she runs for school board, i want you know, i will send you, your first contribution. let me know. >> alisyn: you heard it here. >> clayton: endorsement. >> who is on your show tonight? >> we have the soccer coach of dzhokhar tsarnaev, who will talk to us about what he was really like. we have the reporter covering the gosnell trial in philadelphia, the horrific trial from the beginning, tweeted the photo of the empty press gallery. shocking things coming out and america is not hearing about. i they will tonight. >> mike: it's surprising. i do live in philadelphia and this is where the case against dr. kermit gosnell is taking place. there isn't an overamount of coverage on it.

does it have to be medical marijuana or any marijuana? >> in that state it has to be medical marijuana. state of colorado it can be any marijuana. so he showed the prescription, the judge said he has got it. it's his right. all of the "t"s are crossed and the "i"s are dotted, the police officer give it back. the cop is say nothing, judge, we are di disobeying you. we're not giving it back. he says fine, speaking to the prosecutor, if they don't give it back by may, whatever the date is, they should come to court with counsel because i'll hold them in contempt of not doing what i tell them to do. >> mike: you can't smoke and then drive, though. >> i don't believe there was an allegation of smoking and driving. he was the influence, i don't know if it was under the influence of marijuana or alcohol, but that is a crime he could be punished for. smoking and driving. but actual possession of -- >> mike: you can't. >> right. if you're pulled over dwi and in the drunk you have a sealed case of signal malt scotch, it
doesn't mean they are entitled to keep your scotch. >> alisyn: this was recreational. there is also recreational glauz washington state. recreational possession. >> recreational possession. yeah. saturday morning, are you going throw a curve ball at me. i studied the marijuana laws in a different state. you kept calling oregon. it's loosey-goosey, too. >> alisyn: it is early. washington state there is now recreational possession allowed but the question is are you supposed to operate heavy machinery? >> of course not. somebody could go to jail for driving under the influence. but that doesn't mean as he said, you could possess what they were taking, unless it's illegal. as they said, you could take the open bottle of booze in a car, in the trunk there is a case of scotch, they can't take that, too. >> clayton: be honest the police evidence locker it's probably missing. >> you know what? delay is a joke! >> it has happened. not here but it has happened.
>> mike: good to see you. >> pleasure. have a great weekend, everyone. >> alisyn: thank you. you, too. >> alisyn: coming up on the show headlines. >> clayton: with alisyn camerota. >> alisyn: thank you. here they are. it doesn't get lower than this. new jersey mother convincing her own son that he has cancer to she can collect the donations. susan stillwagon pretended her young son had colon cancer and collected money from her friends and family. the mothers and others close to her were in shock to find out it's a hoax. >> she told me he had colon cancer. >> i'm flabbergasted. >> soccer team. mothers were doing cupcake sales, they were selling bracelets or necklaces. >> alisyn: she faces multiple charges and is currently in a psychiatric unit. warning for the coupon website living social. hackers got access to names, birthday, e-mail, password. credit card and banking

causing all of the destruction in the town. six-mile long path. around 40 fatalities in the town of tuscaloosa. in the four-dy period of tornadoes, there were over 320 fatalities in those storms. a devastating day two years ago. look at the weather maps now. we have talk about the forecast for tuscaloosa. people having all kind of event down there today. there will be thunderstorms in the area. not severe. so, any of the thunderstorms you see in the next five days across the south, those are not significantly severe storms. but will be a few thunderstor thunderstorms. we will continue to watch that. we have a nice one across the northeast. this is a nice day that you want to barbecue. i don't know if you barbecue prime rib. we are doing prime rib. can you barbecue? >> if you know thousand cook the cut, the cut -- if you know how to cook the cut, the cut, you can cook it. >> this is ray, a meat
consultant. today is prime rib day. national prime rib day. rick will celebrate all day today. you have different prime ribs to talk about preparing. anytime i'm about to put a steak on the grill i jump on google to figure out the best way to do it. how do we do a prime rib properly? >> rib comes off the animal, the chuck. that meat is for slower penetrating cooking. so unlike the new york strip steak where you have a high flame and throw it on quick, you turn the flame down a little. you want to make sure the steak is an inch and a quarter from the grill to put up with the intense heat. you'd rather split it between two people than two thinner steaks so it holds the juice. let it cook slower. >> the way to do is go to butcher but say i go to a grocery store. how do i know which one is good? >> that is a good question. you see all the time in the ad prime rib. prime is an adjective. it's also the top grade in the united states. there is a big difference. this is prime rib, but choice
meat. this is graded usda prime. tall flavor is the marbling. the marbling that designates the grade. >> that is better than that? >> absolutely. that's the flavor. the fat running through it, not on the outside. that will melt away in the meat to give you a great taste. >> is that bone? >> no. this is fat but it's not flavoring the flesh. it's the marbling in here that melts away like butter to give it flavor. >> mike: can you do this not on a grill? can you do a prime rib in the oven? >> yes. it's the best roast beef there is. roll it in kosher salt. don't worry about put toog much. it gives you a crust outside. 475 for 15 minutes. down to 375. because you don't want to go lower than that. 350 is baking not roasting. 375. you want to do 15 minutes per pound for the roast. take it out. just like a steak on the grill let it sit. 10 to 15 minutes before you slice it so the meat absorbs the juice and the flavor runs
in your mouth, not over your dish. >> clayton: before we go, just throw it on the grill plain? salt or -- >> throw it like that. sea salt, not regular salt. just a dash afterwards. a lot of people put olive on it. if you don't like the heavy crusting. put olive oil and won'tbe stick to the grill. >> don't do it so well done. >> you want it pink so you get the flavor and tenderness. >> mike: this has to be a new segment. men and meat. >> alisyn: i like that franchise. >> men feed meat to other men. >> alisyn: okay. let's go with that. can you feed meat to women and bring some in? >> i like that. >> alisyn: thank you. >> clayton: beautiful lady like you on the show. we'll allow it. >> alisyn: thank you, guys. meanwhile, this is a serious problem that many couples silently struggle with, infertility. a military wife started a facebook page to connect and support other families going through it. we'll talk to her next. and clean-up your home and make some cash.

moved to russia. did she know something was afoot? that's led to the fact she is a person of interest by authorities. she is in russia so access is not readily available. >> what are we talking nant the last ten days somewhere? 26-year-old who is now dead. where did he get radicalized? in the united states or russia in or inside his own house talking with his mother. >> alisyn: here is the mother speaking just yesterday about how distraught she is about what has happened to her two sons. she blames america. >> in america now. why did i even go there? why? thought they would be safe for any reason. it happened.

come to new york next and try to perpetrate some sort of terrorist actbe in times square there. >> clayton: we are getting word this morning, we didn't have it before the show but we do now. the f.b.i. were looking through, they had a cordoned off part of a landfill site. wasn't clear what they were looking for but may have looked for a laptop in landfill. we know from senator lindsey graham this morning a third man is sought in connection with the other two bombers. all they know is he has a red beard. goes by the name of misha. their uncle was concerned about the guy named misha that he may have led them down the radical path. they don't know much more about him. >> alisyn: turn our attention something that holder said. speaking at the

everyone has a right to become an american citizen in the world. we did survey of the national law, human rights law, there is no human rights law in world to require a country who is there illegally and make them to citizens. this is unfortunate not just from cabinet but the attorney general on the united states. >> alisyn: we cut that partly and he said it's human right to come out of the shadows. you can understand why you think that is a right to not live a shadowy life. but there is a legal process to get a green card and prove yourself and take test for citizenship and become a citizen. so people, you know, who don't agree with the attorney general's position say other people who don't do it right are cutting the line.

hard-earned tax dollars at work. the obama administration is aiming to conjure up public support by paying a public relations firm to promote obamacare. and the kicker? the $8 miion the government is paying this p.r. firm is funded by you, the taxpayer. >> alisyn: is this pointless gouging of the funds or necessary to communicate what is in this law? here to weigh in is crystal wright, public relations exective of baker wright group. hi, crystal. >> how are you? >> mike: >> so for $8 million, what will the p.r. group be doing? >> this p.r. group will be doing nothing but taking all that $8 million to the bank. it's not going tochange behavior. you newhy i know, guys? i worked for global p.r. agency. and we loved government contractors, because we knew we could get lots of taxpayer money. we have wouldn't do anything to meet goals and objectives. so i can give you examples of that, too. but it's a waste. look, obamacare is
$2.7 trillion. we think. the government can't even get states to participate in the exchanges. members of congress now want an exemption because they are required and their staffers to participate in the exchanges because they say it's unaffordable. so what does h.h.s. do? pay two different agencies, porter novelli was paid $20 million last year. they were going to pay webber shanwick to encourage people to participate in a program they never wanted in the first place. it's a awful. >> mike: what does it say when you need to spend that money with a p.r. firm? is what you are trying to sell difficult to sell? >> yes. but, sometimes, the government, you know, doesn't deal in logic and common sense. it's not a private sector company, where it has to meet goal and objectives to shareholder and balance sheet. the firm i worked for won $10 million contract to reduce teen drug use. we have didn't move the needl
needle. the needle moved 1%, a half a percentage point. we were happy because we got rich. another example, we got another contract with the u.s. mint to promote the dollar coin. sacawajia. >> alisyn: my girls had them collected. this is more money after bad. >> alisyn: max baucus came out and critical of the administration and said they have not done a good job of promoting obamacare or explaining it to people, because it's coming down the pike and we need to know how the use it. is this possibly the way that people, americans will better know and understand this? >> yeah. i think on the flip side, you know, to be a contrarian, i
guess, or give it another view here. i might increase awareness of obamacare, but remember, the american people have consistently rejected the program. poll after poll shows that more than 50% of the american people don't want it. so i think it's going have the opposite effect. and it's going to encourage more people not to participate in the exchanges. it's still not worth giving webber shanwick $8 million. they claim they will do advertising with this money. god knows what, right? >> mike: i can see the obama administration side to that. maybe you will like if it you understand it, so we'll promote it this way. >> okay. but remember, nancy pelosi didn't even understand it. and she was an architect. the democrats were architect of this bill. they kept pushing it. no republican voted for it. remember, nancy pelosi famously said we have to pass the bill to see what's in it." so if they don't understand it, i don't know if 20 million, $8 million in advertising will do anything to make the american people

best first quarter since 2008. overall, 18-1/2% increase since last year. the next guest says don't get too excited because it doesn't mean a better economy. realte expert kendra todd joining us to talk about this. you don't think this is easy street. i heard if you have bombing economy, the house -- if you have a booming housing market the economy is sitting pretty. >> that is the past recessions where housing led the recovery. but in the past recession that simply hasn't been the case. housing struggled along. it hasn't given the economy the boost it needs. you know, there is a couple of interesting reasons why. there are two main contributo contributors of housing that usually help the economy. one of them is new construction. which creates jobs, in
construction, real estate, et cetera and consumer spending. typically, the economy really relies on people to take money out of their homes, wh valu rise. and put that money in to bigger ticket purchases. to fuel cash in the economy. that is just simply not happening. this go-around. the fact that prices are up is really not an indicator that the economy is going to get a boost. >> clayton: so credit here a big issue that people can't necessarily get those home equity loans like they used to? and then they take that $10,000, they would run over to home depot and buy new fences if for yard, they would buy drywall to fix up their, that attic space and turn it in another room? is that what is going on here as well? >> well, you know, a lot of people got really burned during the housing crash. they took out equity lines on their homes. they couldn't repay them. they went to foreclosure. and the people that are buying
homes today are people with the higher credit scores who typically don't go and leverage the equity in their homes. additionally, another aspect we need to consider is that this housing recovery is being driven predominantly by investors. i'm not talking mom and pop investors, i'm talking institutional investors. they are using hedge fund money to buy properties crash. equity line are all-time low. really, the bigger question is the economy going to hurt housing? and keep housing slow? it's really not a question of oh, yea, the prices are up. is housing going to give the economy a needed boost? >> clayton: maybe we can end on a positive note. is this the perfect time to buy a house? >> that is a positive note. actually, this now, now is the perfect time to sell your home. there are tons of competition for buyers. but sellers if you just got out from underneath your
mortgage, now is a time to put the for sale sign in the yard. this sum her be a hot one -- this summer will be a hot one. >> clayton: thank you for joining us. what time is it there? 6:00 a.m. you're a trooper. >> it's early. >> clayton: thank you. coming up on the show. sorry kids no, more strapless dresses. while we are at it, no dance at all. the principal says the dresses are inappropriate, making a major decision has parents fuming. a southern tradition that has become a trendy hobby. how can you start preeveryone ising, too, from little jars to big flavors. a few easy step for canned preserves. coming up, we remember the life and legacy of this man, george jones. ♪ he stopped loving her today ♪ ♪ placed a wreath upon his door ♪ ♪ and soon they'll carry him

michael graham is joining us. >> happy to be here. we kno that the family was on te terror watch list and dole in massachusetts. the taxpayers feel good about that. >> mike: some people say i wish we never said their names again but i take the other side. i think we should know every single thing there is to know about the family. >> what more do you need to know? you can simultaneously be on a list watching as terror suspects and be having your bills paid by the taxpayers of massachusetts. the reason governor patrick doesn't want to talk about this, he has a terrible record on e.b.t. fraud. electronic benefit fraud. he thought every reform we have had. you can still buy guns, tattoos and hairstyling on your e.b.t. thanks to him. we found out two months ago that there are at least 19,000 people who receive e.b.t. benefits and we don't know who they are or where they are. we found out we spent $30 million to people who weren't eligible for food
stamps, who the governor and the administration gave anyway. so he doesn't want anyone looking at the fact it's very possible that the al-zahrani tsv parents, not the sons, but the parents for russia and simultaneously someone received e.b.t. benefit in their name. >> mike: you don't think it has anything to do with protecting the family's privacy? >> there is already a state supreme court ruling from the '80s on public interest. if you have a case like this, where the public has an interest in knowing where the money goes there is an exemption to the so-called privacy part. this is all politics. governor patrick, for example, in the election between liz warren and scott brown, ginned up a program where every welfare recipient got a voter registration document, not from the welfare people -- excuse me, not from the election people but from welfare people. an odd scheme. that's how we found out there were orig thatly 40,000 people and narrowed down to 19,000 people and we don't know who they are. we just know we send them checks. >> mike: this part of the

george jones. it's affected people in nashville across the country and even me. one of the great singers, one of the quintessential american voices. i know you love george jones. >> alisyn: i have loved him since i was 25. a friend of mine named mike gerald turned me on to imhim. i love him because the songs are clever and poignant. he had a colorful life. all of that hard drinking and loving and lost love all came through in his songs. >> he said he lives the songs. he literally lived the songs. he dealt with addiction. he dealt with alcoholism. and evidently and wonderfully overcame those with his wife finally. but he spoke to the american people about their troubles. about not having a job and drinking too much. about breaking up. about loss. about all the important things in our lives that we have to
deal with. and he dealt with it in ways that were enviable and sometimes not so enviable. he has the distinction of being arrested for dwi on his lawnmower. i am told by someone here the reason he really did get arrested, as tammy wynette's calling he was cutting through the neighborhood and he had the mower blades down. so a lot of people were upset. they lost part of their lawn. i was thinking back and going to youtube to listen to all of the songs he had done, i didn't realize how much he had done. if you see him do "white lightning" the '60s, incredible. five decades of hits. everybody wanted to sing and sound like george jones. he meant so much to so many people who never met him. i never did but he has a profound affect on my life and my brother's life through my mom.
