label. >>steve: let's talk a little bit about this. chris christie, the governor of my current home state of new jersey, said last week regarding national, n.s.a. spying and how they're spying on all of us. he said this strain of libertarianism going through both parties right now and making big headlines i think is a very dangerous thought. clearly he was taking a shot at rand paul, the libertarian republican. meanwhile rand paul was on with hannity last night and returned fire squarely at chris christie. >> i would remind him that i think what's dangerous in our country is to forget that we have a bill of rights, to forget about privacy, to give up on all of our liberty to say we're going to catch terrorism but you have to live in a police state. it's really i think kind of sad and cheap that he would use the cloak of 9/11
victims and say i'm the only one who cares about these victims. hogwash. if he cared about protecting this country, maybe he wouldn't be in this gimme all the money you have in washington or don't have, and he'd be a little more fiscally responsive and know the way we defend our country, the way we have enough money for national defense is by being frugal and not by saying gimme, gimme, gimme all the time. >>brian: the question is, is rand paul talking about asking questions or the n.s.a. program. when he was saying gimme he was referring to the tpabt that peter king -- to the fact that peter king who sides with governor christie said his views are dangerous and he said peter king and governor christie look for federal aid like everybody else got federal aid like in florida and other states, for sandy. he says that is why these guys are clashing. i think it is good to have
direction -- >>anna: the spat got going and heated up on twitter. governor christie at the time of 9/11 was a federal prosecutor in new jersey. if you don't live here, bridges and tunnels keep everything close. he said you need to look into the eyes of widows and orphans of 9/11 victims. then you heard from rand paul saying it is a little bit insensitive for to you say i'm out of touch with all of that. guys, don't you think this paints a bigger picture for 2016. what is the future of the republican party? >>steve: they both want to run for president. going back to rand paul who distinguished himself when he had that 13-hour filibuster and people watched him and said i think he's right about this drone thing where you can't blow somebody up on american soil without due process, and then he is squarely against big brother, you know, the n.s.a., he feels has gotten too big and green greenwald
revealed the n.s.a. is recording trillions of our phone calls. rand paul has touched a lot of people's awareness where they go maybe i'm a little libertarian myself because i don't trust the government when it comes to a lot of this stuff. >>brian: right. but you have to think about things you can do in order to stay a step ahead of the terrorists but you have to trust the people in charge to implement those things. when it came to there were more republicans defending the n.s.a. program than democrats. let's move on and talk about a guy in the middle after scandal. anthony weiner is apparently in trouble. stay with me. it is just breaking. there it is. could that be it? it turns out even eliott spitzer is having problems with anthony weiner. pot meets kettle. very funny. >>steve: eliott spitzer says he would not vote for anthony weiner. he would have fired him if
he were a public employee. >>anna: he's looking to get back into office and looking for redemption rather than looking for high-end prostitutes this time around. is tph-b surprised? >>brian: i will not make a decision on anthony weiner until i hear john edwards weigh in. he's my moral compass. it is unbelievable eliott spitzer brings this up. this has to be dragging him down. for him it is a step back into the governorship. >>steve: regarding mr. weiner, some shrinkage. last week he was number one in the polls. now according to the latest polls, he is in fourth place. meanwhile there has been some suggestion, why exactly are these young people working for anthony weiner? as it turns out, we know now one of his aides worked for months for mr. weiner
she tells the story in "the daily news" today of new york that a lot of people signed on with mr. weiner to get closer to his wife hama so when hillary runs they'll be closer to hillary. >>anna: huma is an aide and long time confidante of the clintons. but the clintons are going maybe weiner needs to take his hat out because they don't like the connection and what it could do to their reputation. >>brian: the reason they were able to raise close to a million dollars is because people thought if i give money to huma, maybe the word will get to hillary before she becomes president. a lot of people say to yourself gitmo is boring. it should be boring. it turns out they have a library and they have choices in that library. their choice of reading surprised me. >>steve: jim moran, a democrat from virginia, was down there with a codel.
as it turns out, he was told the most requested book by high-valued detainees not the koran but "50 shades of grey." >>anna: i wonder if they, like a lot of housewives that have been reading these books and denying they're reading it by putting brown paper on top of it and you say what are you reading and then you realize it. >>brian: it shows the hypocrisy of their so-called religion. all these guys, terrorists were in strip clubs before they shaved themselves and got on planes and hijacked them. >>steve: straight ahead on this tuesday morning, coming up, she kissed her summer goodbye. a teenager hauled off from summer camp over a kiss. really? apparently she was a security threat. >>anna: nearly 48 million americans are on food

if you're eligible you are entitled. they are meeting some resistance because some of the older generation is saying that is not the way we work things. we're here for what can we do for you as opposed to what can the government do for me? that's what's happening. the aarp, huge supporters of president obama politically and financially. big supporters of obamacare. and now they're out there signing people up for food stamps. this is part of the buy the vote campaign. they're really shifting america, changing what america really is. >>steve: if they're hungry, they should get it. and if they qualify. should they? >> should people be going out there, give it to me, give it to me now. do you want that? is that america. >>steve: if a senior is below the poverty line, they should get it? >> absolutely, yes. the aarp goes further than that. if you're eligible, come on. we want to give you something. they're acting on behalf of the president. and i repeat, i think it's
buying votes with taxpayers' money. >>anna: these numbers would seem to ebb and flow with the state of the economy for sure. over the years every single year we've had an increase in these food stamps >> we've gone from 28 million on food stamps in 2008. we've now got 46, 47 million people on food stamps. the number is at that high level despite the so-called recovery in the economy that the president touts all over the place. >>brian: i don't know what is going to come up on varney and company, but it seems like a topic we could expect at 9:20. >> i think we'll get into it. >>brian: because you're stuart varney and the show is named after you. >> yes and it's a great picture, don't you think? >>brian: it's a torso shot that i envy. >> ten years old. >>steve: that tie he's wearing right there, i'm wearing today. >>brian: stuart, i'll see you this weekend.

to 90%. i don't want a robot coming after me at 83%. >> it is a very interesting idea and certainly we're surrounded by these robots. you've seen our robot in the operating room. you have robots at your home, the vacuum. but you have certain types of robots which are preprogrammed in the factories. those are real robots. the kind of robot we're talking about is basically there is a person behind them. in the operating room i'm the guy who performs this. this is a master-slave type of robot. that is why experience matters. as you mentioned in this one there is a tourniquet that goes around the arm, the vein pops out and using this imaging, a doppler and ultra sound kind of imaging, using an infrared you can find where the vein is. the vein will be blue and the light orange or red is going to be the artery. you can find where the vein is and the needle will go through and do it. the idea behind this is it will cause less injuries,
less mislabeled tubing so it will be more accurate. but right now part of the clinical trial it is only accurate in about 83% which is equivalent of an average phlebotomist. the bottom line is look at all the cameras around us. robotic technology, i think it has been tremendous. in the operating room it has changed our life and the way we take care of our patients with prostate cancer, et cetera but it takes time. cost is another issue with robots. right now it is cheap to have someone draw your blood as opposed to i don't know what the price is going to be. but it is a very interesting concept. >>anna: what's it going to mean for the people who are actually doing it now? is this going to mean their jobs will be on the chopping block? >> interesting. if you look at how the robots have come in our field, yes, it will take part of the nursing job and
other people. but if this can really draw the blood accurately, package it and label it and send it to the lab, this can be an interesting technology that will come in the future. >>anna: dr. samadi, thank you for your time. 6:27 is the time. coming up on "fox & friends" he is the man accused of bringing the world economy to its knees. is this man going to go scot-free? the lakers player steven nash trying out for soccer. big happy birthday to arnold schwarzenegger today. he turns 65.

work for it at benghazi. this government is asking us to trust them. and half of congress that represents them doesn't. >>brian: here is neil cavuto's world. >> we have no reason to believe the government is using this data in a nefarious way. but the fourth constitute protects us and right now the government is collecting phone records of every american in the united states. >> people under observation change on account of their awareness of being observed by the government. that is not the society the framers gave us. they wrote the fourth amendment so there wouldn't be this mass observation, so the government it would have target the bad people rather than sweep everybody else up. >>brian: what do you think our founding fathers would have said to keep the country safe. >> you go to a judge and explain and have them
decide if that is enough. >>brian: you don't trust the fisa court? >> no. >>brian: you don't trust a fisa court to ask the right questions? >> fisa court judges grant over 99% of applications. when there was no one there defending the constitution, defending the fourth amendment, that is tphotd tphotd -- not consistent. >>brian: debate is hot and heavy. >> i wish i could play soccer like you do. >>brian: i wish i understood the constitution like you do. i finally feel cool. next on the rundown, a lesson no kid should learn. a textbook that praises islam at the expense of christianity? we'll show you evidence. they call themselves the most trusted name in news but can we trust cnn to deliver an accurate movie about hillary clinton? you're about to find out. ♪ [ male announcer ] imagine this cute blob is metamucil.

>> steve: outraged parents in brief regard county, florida, claim a commonly used ap textbook is biased toward islam at the expense of other religions. so what is it about the world history that has these parents so riled up? todd starnes is with fox news radio and has been following the story and joins us live. good morning to you. >> good morning. the bias is pretty clear here. 36 page chapter dedicated to islam, no chapter dedicated to christianity, no chapter dedicated to judaism. >> steve: this is the textbook that is not only being used in florida, but across the country, right? >> that's the big concern. you're absolutely right. these textbooks are being used
in districts all across the country and in many instance, moms and dads don't have a clue what their kids are learning. we're talking about 15-year-old kids in ninth grade that are learning things, for example, we've got a couple of the examples of the bias. one referenced mohammed and his armies taking over. they say people happily accepted islam as their way of life. there was another -- >> steve: wait a minute, wait a minute. they happily accept islam. but they don't mention tens of thousands were massacred. >> no, not at all. they sort of gloss over that particular thing. there is another case where it says the book indicates that jesus is the proclaimed messiah or proclaimed himself to be the messiah, but they state it as fact that mohammed is the prophet. >> steve: okay. is it true that -- i read in your report that they hired a muslim cleric to write the muslim part? >> that's right. that came from representative workman who contacted me and he
says that he called the publisher, pearson publishing, and they told him, before they knew who he was, they told him that a muslim cleric wrote those chapters. now pearson tells me, they said no, no, no. that didn't happen. they just had an academic expert working with them. >> steve: you've got one more example. >> that's right. descriptions of the battles, for example, christian battles. they use the word massacre to describe those battles. but when the muslims came in and fought, they call that a takeover. >> steve: here is -- okay. that looks pretty provocative. here is what the publisher says. quote, pearson and its authors adhere to the highest editorial standards when creating course material which is undergo a rigorous review process. a review of the book shows there is balanced attention given to the beliefs of islam, judaism and christianity. >> with schools about to kick back into high gear, moms and
dads need to grab the textbooks and read what their kids are learning. again, this book has been in the classroom for three years and we understand from the school board they contacted me last night, they say they are going to investigate this and there is a pretty good chance they may reconsider this textbook for next year's classes. >> steve: this has been in those classes for three years. what was it, a parent who was leafing through it and said, hey, wait a minute? i don't like it? >> parents and advocacy groups that go in and they find this bias in textbooks all across the country. not just florida. >> steve: sure. todd starnes, thank you. >> thanks. >> steve: all right. what do you think about that? e-mail us. coming up, rn in n -- cnn is doing a movie about hillary clinton. will it be missing some fact the like nbc's move yes? stay tuned. and cue carrie underwood. a woman's car is no match for a

the employees have been accounted for now. as many as 50 houses near the scene of that accident were evacuated and people are now being able to go back home. but the remarkable news is everyone did make it out okay. >> steve: that's amazing. all right. thank you very much. >> sure. >> brian: three minutes after the hour. anna, you have the headlines. >> anna: more stories developing overnight. this is what happened while you were sleeping. another disaster involving trains in switzerland. a headon on collision between two trains leaving one person dead, dozens injured. five seriously. investigators trying to figure out how the trains ended up on the same track. this accident comes just days after a speeding train, if you'll recall in spain, flew off the tracks leaving 79 people dead there. the driver of that train charged with negligent homicide. a brand-new report this morning says more charges may be in store for former new england patriots player aaron hernandez. cops are reportedly investigating his connection tumult competent shootings

doesn't talk anything about the economy. take look. let's put it up on the big screen. going to talk about obamacare august 4. immigration on august 5. climate change on august 13. and he's going to talk about gun control on august 21. nary a word, according to ofa, about the economy. >> brian: what's he talk being? with his economy when it comes to the hour speech, he had two ideas. i need $50 billion to rebuild the nation's roads and bridges. okay. you're not going to get that and you already had that and the stimulus didn't work. why is it the president of the united states is not realizing that after four-plus years, four years and six months, that the economy is what he has made it. it's no longer what he inherited, it's what he's done. charles krauthammer thinks he's trying to avoid it. >> i find it astonishing that he goes around making speeches in which he deplores the state of the economy, the growing income inequality, chronic unemployment, stagnant middle
class income, and it's as if he's been a bystander action as if he's been out of the country for the last five years. it's his economy. he's the president. he gave us the biggest stimulus in the history of the milky way and he said it would jump start the economy. the result has been the slowest recovery the worst recovery since world war ii. who is responsible for that? they were his policies. he talks about this and actually he gets away with it in a way that i find absolutely astonishing. it's magical. this is his economy and he's pretending that he's just stumbled upon it. >> anna: today the president is going to be spinning this when he talks about obamacare on his birthday, august 4th. he'll be spinning it to, hey, obamacare, is tied in to the economy because the number one cause of bankruptcy is medical bills and this is going to -- are you kidding me? no way on earth. the other thing is, just very recently a poll came out from
fox news channel about what people thought of obamacare and a large percentage thought it would hurt them more than help them. 53% said they wanted to repeal it. >> steve: we know the president said repeatedly, i have 1200 days left in office and i spend every waking minute thinking about ideas to help americans succeed. there are so many people who are unemployed and underemployed, if he really wants to help them in august, he'll talk about the economy. if he does, stand by. we'll alert you. >> brian: benghazi is on the agenda also this week. there will be some key hearings. why? after a lot of give and take and people finally coming across that you can not no longer avoid it, colonel george bristol, former commander of the task force that operated the northern and western africa, will appear in a classified members only briefing with the house armed services subcommittee. why is this important? for the longest time the administration says you can't have him. then they said he retired. then the marine times published a report saying he's not retired. he's still active. so one of his last things he will do, we hope, will say
candidly electric his perspective why special forces was not deployed to try to save those men on 9-11-2012. >> steve: and those are the four men who lost their lives on that particular day. so it does have a lot of people going, wait a minute. you said he was retired. he's not retired. he doesn't retire officially until august 1. so on the day before he officially retires from the military, he will sit down behind closed doors and talk about what he knows about what happened in benghazi. here is jason chaffetz with greta van susteren last night. >> i don't know how many 35-year veterans or 35-year people, colonels, full bird colonel there in -- somebody actively involved in the marines is mistakenly identified as somebody who is retired that they couldn't identify him, didn't know where he was. ends up he was a few miles south
of washington, d.c., had not yet retired. i find that a bit curious in the whole string of things that have happened in benghazi. just add it to the list of some of the imcompetence or deception from the pentagon. it's one or the other. >> steve: of course, as we've heard from the administration and from the president himself, this is a phony scandal. although with phony scandal, people don't come back in coffins. >> anna: right. we just saw those four innocent heros that lost their lives. >> steve: this just in on the e-mail machine, the subject is golf club attack. good morning, friends. was that houma smashing that suv with the golf club?

clinton? john opportunity is the columnist for the national review on-line and says it sounds like the movies -- this particular one is going to start after 98. so we'll miss a whole part of her life. >> a whole century of her life brushed out. >> steve: we won't hear about travelgate. >> she says it's important we get our people into the travel office. six people were fired, accused of criminal misconduct. the head of the indicted. a jury acquitted him in two hours. all of this to put a 25-year-old cousin of bill clinton's into the travel office to head it. >> steve: that won't be in it. neither will her dramatic and very effective investing in the stock market when it comes to cattle futures. >> she said she read the "wall street journal," decided to invest in the cattle futures market. she put in 1,000 bucks and in nine months, it turned into $100,000. her broker was suspended for
manipulating the market, by the way. >> time to move on. >> steve: yeah, it is. that means as well we won't hear about whitewater. >> whitewater, which was a disaster, bunch of clinton associates, including his business partners went to jail over it. and the billing records, which tied hillary clinton to whitewater, mysteriously disappeared for years and later found in a offy table in her private quarters. >> steve: i'm sure that's a coincidence. remind people about filegate in 1996. that, too, won't be in the nbc movie. >> before we had all this high-tech eavesdropping, we had simple paper and the white house managed to get 900 files of republican appointees from previous appointees and filed through them. >> steve: what did louis freeh say? >> an invasion of privacy. >> steve: and we won't hear about that and how hillary clinton tried to fix health care back in '97.
>> right. a federal judge sanctioned the government for a cover-up of the health care task force that hillary ran. she was trying to conceal what they were talk being and what they were deciding in her health care. >> steve: in one of those gates we just detailed, in reading your column on national review on-line, said that whoever was investigating thought that she was -- she told some whoppers essentially when she was testifying. >> the top deputy to the independent prosecutor said in one deposition alone she said, i don't recall 50 times. he graded her truthfulness as an f. >> steve: let's talk about something that could be in it. benghazi. that happened on her watch, but you got to figure they, too, would probably do some air brushing over the unseemly details where four americans are killed. >> depends on whether or not the new witnesses that are finally coming forward and being allowed to talk to congress get us closer to the truth on benghazi. i think the real problem lies in the white house oval office. not in the secretary of state's
office. but i still think benghazi should be covered and it will be. >> steve: are you concerned that nbc, which you watch the cable outfit, they definitely lean to the left, and cnn are involved in movies like this? >> they say they're going to be even handed. the cnn film will be done by a skilled film maker, charles ferguson. one thing i can tell you about him, he's a lefty. his first film was about what he called the american occupation of iraq that sort of gives the game away. nbc's entertainment's president says this will be even handed. >> steve: oh, good. >> but ten years ago he was president of showtime, the cable network and he agreed to take on the film cbs rejected on the reagans, that nancy and right hand reagan history that was so questionable, had reagan saying all kinds ever things he never said about gays and other things. and showtime picked it up when cbs rejected it for, quote, moral reason, unquote.
so i wonder. here he ran an anti-reagan film ten years ago. now he says he's going to run an even handed hillary clinton film. the proof is in the network pudding. >> steve: no kidding. john, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> steve: what do you think about this stuff? you think those movery also be fair? e-mail us. meanwhile, next up, this wasn't in the script. the stars of "the real housewives of new jersey," one of them facing more than 50 years in the slammer. her. and the baseball drug scandal about to bust wide open. brand-new details on deck. ♪

rodriguez than with braun who accepted the ban. >> brian: ken, on not a big deal, it's going to affect the playoff race, when you talk about cruz with the rangers and colon and a-rod coming back or not coming back. you can argue they're in contention. it's going to affect the game on the field. don't you agree? >> it depends who fights the suspensions and who doesn't. the players have the right to fight these. if they appeal, they can stay on the field. i should clarify, i don't think cabrera and colon are going to get suspended. >> brian: but they're linked with another group that could or not be linked with their first failure. correct? >> no. it's the same thing. let's say i tested positive for sugar last year and then just now you found out where i bought the cream soda. it's the same crime. >> brian: when we look at this in baseball, you had a hall of fame induction ceremony with no living person there. it should have been barry bonds, roger clemens and others. isn't that an embarrassment to
the pastime, ben? >> i think it was. it was a very sad weekend in cooperstown we just had with the induction of three deceased people into the hall of fame. obviously this is the fallout from the steroid era in which everybody is presumed guilty, even guys like mike piazza, who have not been firmly tied to ped's. very sad. they'll have to consider how the legacy will be moving forward. >> brian: look at brian braun, he flat out lied to us. we got him on tape saying there is no way i did it. he did. he'll still get 10 million next year and 12 million the next year after that. do you think if you really want to stop this, you have to tell people if you fail, your contract is null and void, ken? >> you can go ahead and do that. but you're never going to get what you want. you're never going to get a fully clean game because we're human beings and fallible. people are always going to try to skirt the rules. >> brian: does it bother you as one who covers the game that people are cheating?
>> oh, no, not in the least. we're human beings. we're not that impresssive a species no matter whether it's broadcasting or baseball. we all cheat. >> brian: really? do you cheat and then cheat again and then try to hinder the investigation? that's what alex rodriguez is being accused of doing. >> right. i haven't specifically done that, but i'm sure other people in my profession have and will and i'm sure people in your profession have and will. >> brian: so you don't think there should be any ramifications for that? >> there are ramifications for it. he's on the verge of being suspended. >> brian: do you believe it could be a lifetime ban? >> no. >> brian: ben? >> no. he's subject to the collective bargaining agreements. i believe that the commissioner's office is leaking the possibility of a lifetime ban just to try to get a-rod to cut a deal, it will be less than that. >> brian: we'll see. the yankees don't seem to want him on their team. they're keeping him down.

>> steve: i will. >> brian: maybe after the show? >> steve: i'm getting ready. >> brian: he lost his campaign manager, but also has a very young staff and a lot of people are saying, why does he get these young staffers? it turns out they have an opportunity, they see as maybe a route to hillary. if you look at the two of which were interviewed today, one's name was olivia n. >> y and clay wade. they said they wanted to get to hillary 'cause houma is best friends with hillary and chief officer with hillary's campaign and with the secretary of state's office, they thought this would be a route there. it wasn't the love of wiener. >> steve: exactly. it's interesting, in that same story it talks about how mr. wiener called in all the interns and he said okay, i want to show you something. let's play this memory game. >> brian: you don't want to do that with wiener, i want to show you something. >> steve: i want to show you my trick. what he said was, just everybody go around the -- there were 20 interns. okay. just give me your name and one
fact about you and i'll remember it and then i'll go around. so everybody went around and did their name and something unique about them. and then he said, okay. your maim is monica. she goes, no, my name is stephanie. next one. your name is monday i can't. no -- monica. she said no, my name is olivia. she said let's just call this off. >> anna: the other thing that's out is that the clintons are trying to distance themselves from anthony wiener thinking this may hurt hillary if she chooses to run in 2016. >> steve: anyway, that's the very latest. >> anna: a lot of wienergate. >> steve: we got some headlines for you and fox news alerts. while you were sleeping, police make an arrest after more vandalism is discovered. some of washington, d.c.'s historic landsmarks. a woman believed -- look at that paints. a woman believed to be homeless is behind bars. she's accused of splattering paint inside two chapels at the
national cathedral in northwest washington. cops are investigating whether she's connected to two other similar incidents on the mall because after the arrest, green paint was also found on the statue of the joseph henry statue outside the smithsonian headquarters and martin luther statue outside the luther place memorial church. all this comes after green paint was found friday on the lincoln memorial. cops say they have a person of interest in that case. they also have surveillance tape. >> brian: yeah. it's got to be cameras everywhere. a young girl from arkansas is fighting for her life. she has a rare deadly disease after spending the day at a water park. she's in critical condition with this thing called parasitic meningitis. it usually causes death within five days. the willow springs water park in arkansas been shut down. >> anna: what an awful thing. lea michelle is speaking out for the very first time since the stunning death of her boyfriends and "glee" co-star, cory
monteith. she expressed her gratitude to fans for their support by tweeting thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love and support. cory will forever be in my heart. she also posted this picture of them. monteith died of an alcohol and heroin overdose two weeks ago. >> steve: meanwhile, he's a little kid who's got big game. this little leaguer hitting not one, not two, not three, not four, but five homeruns over 120-foot fence, in a row! his impresssive batting skills happening consecutively over a two-game period. >> anna: wow. at that age when kids hit homeruns so often, it's just because they overthrow the ball or it's a comedy of errors almost. but this kid -- >> brian: it's going over the fence. >> anna: right.
>> brian: unless john wants a blood test. >> anna: 37 minutes after the hour. we have some new information on our top story. overnight dozens of massive explosions rocking a florida town as a propane plant blows up. what happened? wofl reporter has the breaking details. what can you tell us, ryan? >> good morning. we just heard in the last 15 minutes, the fire chief said in four decades, he's never seen anything this spectacular. eight are injured. they added one person to the list. four are critical with burns. they are all men. but really minor miracle considering what we saw last night. there was a big question all morning, was this intentional or not? about 15 minutes ago, the fire chief confirmed it was an act, in fact, likely human error. >> we don't think that there was any act of sabotage or anything like that. we honestly think it was
probably an equipment failure with a combination of maybe human error from one of the staff. >> just very fortunate. 53,000 of those 20-pound canisters are what exploded. some of them blowing completely off the property. in the next half hour, we'll see some video from inside that plant. very fortunate scene in what many officials are saying the most spectacular fire they've seen. we are live about 30 minutes outside of orlando. >> steve: thank you very much. meanwhile, moving on, now to extreme weather out of italy. looks like a movie, doesn't it? it's a rare tornado tore through milan, italy. it left a path of destruction, flipping around cars, utility poles. there are reports that multiple tornadoes hit the area
yesterday. look at that. it looks like oklahoma or kansas >> brian: or "the shark nato". >> steve: could be. maria? >> good morning. not a shark nato, but very unusual to be seeing tornadic activity across italy. it's very rare to see a tornado and even more rare to see damage accompanying the storms. that's what we saw across italy yesterday and in terms of rare weather news, tropical depression flossie across parts of the pacific and it is impacting hawaii. it has weakened. yesterday it was a tropical storm and it's very rare to see one of those systems impacting hawaii as well. even this time of year. so we're still looking at the potential for heavy rain impacting parts of hawaii. so we'll keep an eye on that storm system. temperature wise, below average across parts of the great lakes. taking a look at some of these temperatures, only in the 50s in chicago and cleveland early this morning. warming up into the 70s later on this afternoon. 101 for your high temperature in san antonio. and damaging winds, large hail will be possible in secs of the

but amazing job they do. >> brian: i know that hospital. it's awesome. the people couldn't be nicer. the nurses are underappreciated. >> absolutely. if you ever been in the hospital, you know how intimate it can get. >> steve: including waiting until the end of the shift to have the baby. >> right. imagine that. >> anna: i bet just like us, they all know where the 24-hour duncan doughnut coffee shops are. >> our series continues tomorrow. ainsley earhart is baking bagels in new york. look how cute she is. >> brian: is it illegal to be that cute at 2:00 o'clock in the morning? besides chris chulo, no one is that cute. >> steve: thank you very much. he has covered doddss of missing people's cases on "america's most would noted" including the three women missing in cleveland. john walsh is here and he says those three from cleveland will never get justice. >> anna: then it takes just seconds for a boss to scan your resume and just seconds and

why is that a problem? >> we don't want to be cute. you want to be professional. unless you're anthony wiener, you want to make sure you have a really professional e-mail here. >> he probably doesn't have a good one. you also say you don't want to put up your facebook profile. why not? >> when dealing with facebook, people will check that out. potential employers will check it out. be professional. don't direct people there. if they check it, great. let's keep it professional. maybe a linkedin profile. >> you also say don't talk about yourself too much. >> it's about what you can do for the company. companies want to hear how you're going to help them. you want to make it a statement about how you're going to add value to the company. >> you also say that these sentences under here like here is the company name. here are old job titles. you say this is too long. >> you don't want to make it in a paragraph format. a resume is quick. attention spans are short. do bullets. don't put the same sentence, the same verbiage.

canisters, most of which ignited during the explosion. another disaster involving trains. this one in switzerland. a head on collision between two trains leaving one person dead. nearly three dozen others are injured. five of them seriously. investigators trying to figure out how the trains ended up on the very same track. this accident comes just days after a speeding train, if you'll remember in spain, flew off the tracks, leaving 79 people dead. the driver of that train charged with negligent homicide. in a few hours, we will learn the fate of the army private who leaked 700,000 classified documents to wikileaks. the judge in the bradley manning court-martial will announce a verdict at 1:00 o'clock. if convicted on the most serious charge of aiding the enemy, he could spend the rest of his life behind bars. prosecutors say manning knew the documents would end up in the hands of al-qaeda. his attorneys, however, arguing he simply wants to do spark a debate about u.s. foreign policy. a cat uses one of its nine lives by making a 4,000-mile journey from the philippines to
california in a freight container. the cat was discovered when the ship arrived in l.a. and it's believed the cat snuck on board during loading time overseas and vets are saying it's amazing he survived without food or water for some three weeks. but it is expected to make a full recovery. now she needs a loving home. those are your headlines. i can't imagine there isn't a single person out there who isn't going, i'd love to take this cat. >> brian: putting the cat aside, there is breaking news out of washington. looks like the president in his speech, the a.p. and now fox news confirming he's going to propose a grand bargain. that grand bargain will involve the reducing the corporate tax rate in exchange for more investment for middle class or spending for infrastructure and jobs. laura ingraham joins us right now with instant analysis on that. laura, is this something where the president is meeting halfway, cut the corporate rate, and i also need 50 billion to build roads? >> obviously the first part will be music to the ears of
corporate analysts today, but always tying it to yet another stimulus or more government spending. i think it's -- i'd be shock fundamental it went anywhere on capitol hill. i think he knows that. so while it looks like he's reaching out, maybe a bit of an olive branch here, more spending with the house republicans, i don't see how that's going to fly at all. i think it's ultimately going to be a lot of fanfare today. but i'm not sure it's going to go anywhere. >> steve: besides, the president himself has been behind lure lower -- lowering corporate tax rates but coupled with lowering individual tax rates, part of a big bargain. but the individual tax rates part is missing from this particular proposal. >> yeah. i think since the big deal last january about income taxes, individual income taxes, some people got a hit. some people got a permanent rate stabilization, the old bush tax cuts, i don't think they're
going to go back to that right now. but look, the fact of the matter is, this recovery has been a phony recovery. corporate earnings, the ratio of corporate profits to earnings is not bad, 15, 16 right now is the ratio. but most middle income earners are seeing either wagers stagnate or wages go down. and you guys have been doing great work this morning on how so many people now are going to find themselves in poverty. at one point or another in their lives. we have gdp at ridiculous lows hovers around 1% last quarter. so the idea that somehow this has been five years of a slow but steady recovery, it's a jobless recovery. and the president can try to avoid that topic and i know we're going to talk about all his other pet issues, but in the end, that ultimately is going to be i think the historical marker on this presidency, whether it really was in a recovery for all americans. and i don't think you're seeing
that. >> steve: did you refer to if as a phony recovery, because that's clever? >> yeah. [ laughter ] phony scandal, phony recovery. it's not -- it doesn't mean anything. it means that we have a lot of people who are doing well at the upper income levels, but for most people who are just trying to put their kids through college and prepare for maybe what they thought was retirement, what recovery? it's not working for them. >> anna: and we're hearing very often the president saying that washington is this and washington is that, almost talking in the third person as if it's not his problem. >> like he doesn't live here. he doesn't even live here! >> anna: but beginning next month, he's going to be starting a series of speeches leading up to the campaigning for midterm elections. there is four of them and it's a bit curious of what's missing. august 4 he'll talk about obamacare. on the 59, immigration. climate change and then gun control on august 21. so what's missing there? >> not the economy. so again, it's a lot like 2012
in many ways where the president is good at pushing the kind of socialist progressive, liberal, whatever moniker you want to use. these types of hot button issues. he has some help from republicans and big business and big gop donors on the issue of immigration. that's the one i think he's going to really use to try to maybe broaden the democratic base going into the mid terms. but when the president after five years cannot campaign on follow us, the democrat platform on the economy and your life will get better, i think they're in for a potential drubbing in the mid terms and perhaps even a shock in the next presidential election. in the end, people need to know that their country and their government is working for them. not just on the issues that frankly motivate a thursday night seminar at harvard university. >> steve: you just mentioned the next presidential election. there are two republicans who would probably like to throw
their hats in. we're talking about senator paul rand of kentucky and governor chris christie. >> rand paul. >> steve: thank you. they've gotten into quite a fight. chris christie is okay with the nsa spying in part. rand paul is not. and last week chris christie said of mr. paul, this strain of liberalism that's going through both parties right now and making big headlines i think is a very dangerous thought. rand paul did not like that one little bit. he was on with hannity last night taking a shot at chris christie. >> i would remind him that i think what's dangerous in our country is to forget that we have a bill of rights, to forget about privacy, to give up on all of our liberty to say oh, we're going to catch terrorism, but you have to live in a police state. and it's really i think kind of sad and cheap that he would use the cloak of 9-11 victims and say, oh, i'm the only one who cares about these victims. hogwash. if he cared about protecting
this country, maybe he wouldn't be in this gimme, gimme all the money you have in washington or don't have and he'den a little more fiscally responsive and know that the defends our country, the way we have enough money for national defense is by being frugal and not by saying give me, give me all the time. >> brian: referring to sandy and the aid that he got and he also refers to new york 'cause peter king got involved and took christie's side and ted cruz got involved and took rand paul's side. where do you stand, laura? >> well, look, i stand as a radio host, seeing this debate in the republican party as a really good thing. okay? the main line or establishment republicans, and i think you have to put christie in that camp. he did the dance with obamacare before the election, the hurricane sandy dance, a lot of people, including myself, thought it was a little much. but he does really stand with the establishment on most of the
issues, whether it's foreign policy, maybe syria, the nsa spying. rand paul represents not just his father's kind of weighing of conservatism, but also an increasing number of young people i think who are kind of wondering what is the conservative movement -- how does it represent me? i think for the establishment republicans who think rand paul is outrageous and doesn't know what he's talking about, i think they have nobody to blame but themselves for getting more disconnected from the people and more disconnected from i think core conservative principles that really this debate has been going on within the republican party for decades. and when you challenge the establishment as paul is doing, as a libertarian, then you're going to come up against not just krista marinoy. you'll -- chris christie. you'll come up against jeb bush, marco rubio. so this is going to play out and be extremely interesting moving
toward 2016 and i'm looking forward to it. i think is good for the party. >> brian: you have two things. you have a choice, democratic party, they're trying to stamp down the spitzer and trying to put that aside and the wiener investigation and -- >> steve: war on women. >> brian: and the mayor of san diego. the republicans are separating on issues. >> yeah. that's vibrant. that's what we should be doing within a movement or within a party. it shouldn't be this it's a totalitarian approach. that's what got the republican party in trouble. nobody questioned what george w. bush was doing in the second term. i think that helped deliver barak obama the election. >> anna: over the weekend it came out that nbc was put how long a mini series leading up to the 2016 election about hillary clinton. now we're learning that nbc will be doing something similar. what do you make of that? >> remember november 6 of last
year when national geographic did the osama bin laden movie and, okay, they're trying to burnish obama's national security credentials. i guess you could say the same thing about this. i wrote a book many years ago called "the hillary trap." i understand the diane lane thing is not going to cover anything pre-1998. the other film will. this is hollywood's love affair with the clintons, it's palpable. you can feel it. it's going to be maybe not as over the top in 2008 for obama. but it will be pretty big. this is a kickoff in many ways. >> brian: if travolta plays bill, i'll be happy. >> maybe wiener will be look for work. >> steve: all right. laura will go do her radio show in 45 minutes from right now, heard at radio stations all across the country. we thank you very much for stopping by. >> great seeing you. >> anna: 13 minutes after the hour. does it feel like the cost of living is going up but your salary isn't?
you're right. and our next guest has the brand-new statistics our government is trying to hide. >> steve: the number one requested book by terrorists at gitmo is a secret until now hello? boo! i am the ghost of meals past. when you don't use pam, this is what you get. residue? i prefer food-based phantasm, food-tasm. poultry-geist works too if you used chicken.

>> steve: according to the federal government, the cost of living right now is up 1.8% this year. but our next guest says lawmakers might want to check their math. in his index, the cost of living is actually up 10%, especially on the items that we all buy. ed is managing partner of chapwood investments and joins us live. good morning to you. >> i'm happy we're doing this. >> steve: so right now the government -- federal government says the consumer price index is 1.8%, which sounds like a great number. but according to the chapwood index, an index you've got, you say it's closer to 10; this number, the cpi the government puts out has been manipulated since 1983. they do this for one reason, to reduce the amount of money that they have to pay out in
entitlement programs, social security payments, and by manipulating that number down, they pay out less. but here is the negative impact. people are committing, as a result of following this number with their wages and social security payments and increases, they're committing government assisted financial suicide 'cause we all have our own cost of living increase. >> steve: absolutely. so for a number of years you put this thing together, you contacted a bunch of your friends and clients. what do you actual lea buy as opposed to the federal number? these are things that we all buy and take a look at the prices. lettuce up 54%. sugar, 49. bacon, 20. frozen yogurt, 17. we got another one. ibuprofen, generic brand, is up 27%. and oil changes up 25. napkins up 22. kleenex is 9.9. movie ticket is 8. that is way different than the federal government's number of 1.8, ed. >> right. my index is we take the top 500 items that most americans spend money on. look, this is not perfect.
but the reason i put this together is get people to start becoming aware that why is it that had they get a raise of 2 or 3%, the real cost of living is going up 8 to 10%. i think it's imperative that people in my business, we start bringing awareness to this and start targeting investment portfolios for better returns and not accepting this number. >> steve: and you see that the number that the government puts out there right now, 1.8, is manipulated by the government so the government doesn't have to pay out to us as much? >> there is absolutely no question about it. everyone knows this. if you ask any person on the street, everyone watching now knows in order to keep consistents with the year before, their costs have gone up a lot more than 1.8%. it's not just food and energy. taxes. think about how much taxes have gone up. that is not included in the cpi. your insurance is not included. so everyone needs to -- and i asked my clients, figure out what it cost you this year versus last year, since they didn't do it. none of my clients did that, i decided i'll create my own index. i've been doing this for four
years. >> steve: what's your web site? >> chapwoodindex.com. i make no money on it. it's just my gift to this country. >> steve: all right. it's an eye opener. thank you very much. >> thanks. >> steve: it is exactly 20 minutes after the top of the hour. he covered cases on "america's most wanted," including the three women held captive in cleveland. john walsh says those women will never get justice. come on in, you're next. and she kissed her summer good-bye. a teen-ager hauled off from summer camp over a kiss because the kiss was a security threat ♪
>> anna: 23 minutes after the hour. great to be with you here at "fox & friends." quick headlines. police make an arrest after more vandalism is discovered at washington, d.c.'s historic landmarks. a woman believed to be homeless is behind bars. she's accused of splattering paint inside two chapels at the washington national cathedral. police are investigating whether she's connected to two other similar incidents on the national mall. and a teen-ager hauled off from summer camp by cops over a kiss? a lawsuit claims the camp emmerson director called the girl a, quote, security threat, after she was caught smooching with her boyfriend behind a building. the girl's dad suing for more than $675,000. wow. those are your headlines. >> brian: she lit up the stage in her first public appearance since being held captive for more than a decade. >> give it up for amanda berry. [ cheers and applause ]
>> brian: stepping on to the stage this weekend during a concert in ohio, says after the man who -- days after the man who held her in captivity pleaded guilty, he'll stay in prison for the rest of his life. joining us right now with his reaction, john walsh, former host of "america's most wanted." is that enough for you? >> i think it's enough for these three women because they won't have to go through the hell of testifying. i sat through many of those trials. they're long, they're tortureous, families are devastated by what comes out during the trials. but for me, i think it's too easy for him. he's going to sit in a cell and watch a colored tv for the rest of his life. guys like him, they put him in special cells because the rest of the prisoners would like to pay him back. you think about especially what he did to michelle knight, how he raped and impregnated her five times and then he beat her mercilessly for her to miscarry. i mean, this is a violent coward. i don't know if it's payment
enough, but these three women are doing wonderful. at the national center for missing and exploited children, we always advise them not to do any media. we did it with elizabeth smart when we recovered her. she didn't talk to the media for a year. jaycee did you goard stayed out for a year and a half. they have their own business in healing to do and amanda came out just to show that she was okay. they're not talking to the media. we advised them not to until they've had counseling. >> anna: what's your advice on the public being vigilant so more women like this or children or anybody, victims to terrible crimes like this? >> i wish people got more involved and i think there is a lesson to be learned here because amanda berry was listed as a run away for long time, which she wasn't. he just picked her up. and gina dejesus, both of the families i know, and amanda berry's mother unfortunately died of a heart attack. i say a broken heart before amanda was recovered.
but gina dejesus should have been an amber alert. she was only 14 years old. but she didn't qualify because the police say nobody saw her. i don't think -- i think the public plays a huge role and they have to be more vigilant. those women shouldn't have been in that house for ten years. >> steve: parents need to be vigilant as well. it's back to school time. you want to talk a little bit about five star response. this is the first time you've ever backed a product, isn't it? >> i'm involved with this company. they're a wonderful company and they put together these very proficient safety devices. they're the jitter bug phone with the big numbers. >> steve: oh, yeah. >> which is wonderful, which you can have the same technology that's in this little button in the jitter bug. but this is the five star. and. >> steve: let's hold that up. >> if you feel uncomfortable, if you're a child, if you're a woman working late, if you're a senior and you lost your direction or whatever, you can hit that button and talk to a
trained agent. if you need 911, they'll get it for you. they have a nurse on staffment if it's your child at the school bus f you're at the boston bostn bombing, hit this but then and you can talk to an agent that will talk back to you. if you're a woman working 'til 11:00 o'clock at night and you're afraid in the parking lot, you can talk to somebody and they'l help immediately. they track you. it has a gps tracking device. they know exactly where you are. it's great for senior citizens. but it's great for kids, too. it has many applications. very affordable. they donate a dollar to the national center for every one. >> brian: you also say develop an easy safety plan. you also say landmark your child's school route if they're walking to school with a map. >> walk them the first time. if they're old enough. i still say to people, there are so many creeps occupant there, we've had so many cases, make sure your kid is old enough. walk the route the first time,
have them carry one of these. buddy system works the best. give them the rules of safety. if a car approaches you, go the other way. you've got to talk to your kids. >> anna: right. and talk to them about stranger danger. john, thank you so much. >> brian: no adult wants directions from a kid. >> steve: thank you very much. >> always nice to see you. >> steve: forget the koran. the number one book requested by terrorists at gitmo is -- here is a clue. it's a best seller among american women. hmmm. >> anna: she thought she was hallucinating. how did a 7-foot tall bucket of kfc end up in a woman's front yard? >> brian: lucky ♪ if you wanna go and twist it you can twist it good ♪

but now others on the trip are starting to admit that it only weighed 26. dishonesty? from a russian? >> anna: he's got his shirt on. >> brian: that is different. he's not on a horse. >> steve: that's substantial. what's the biggest fish you ever caught? something that didn't come in a mrs. paul's box. >> brian: no, no. listen, those are fish sticks and they're something that's breaded. that's not a fish. i told you that. there is no mouth. but i will say this, i caught a fluke that seemed heavy. >> steve: yeah? you didn't weigh it? >> brian: because i'm not into the glory of i just know i got it and i ate. and for a while as a child f we didn't catch anything, we didn't eat. >> anna: yeah, right. >> brian: we had carp five days a week. >> steve: sure. [ laughter ] it was tough at the kilmeade place. >> brian: very tough. >> steve: next time you tell the stories, we'll have violin music. >> brian: if you don't mind. >> steve: we asked you earlier if you thought cnn and nbc would
be unbiased in the movies they're going to be producing and releasing about hillary clinton before the 2016 election. remember both are being done by liberal movie producers. your e-mail pouring in. >> anna: that's right. this one comes from steve. he says fair? are you kidding me? it will only be fair to the president clintons. >> brian: john says anything these two produce regarding the history of this of the clintons is guaranteed to be bents so far left, hillary won't recognize it. >> steve: sean says it's amazing how hill can kick off a campaign with a tv that will be viewed by millions and not spend a dime. >> anna: one thing is for certain, the nbc mini series will have a beautiful hillary clinton with diane lane. >> brian: right. i will say this, she's a huge figure, for the last 30 years. certainly ripe for political -- for a movie. >> steve: right. keep in mind, they'll start i think in 98. they're going to miss travelgate.
they're going to miss filegate. they're going to miss whitewater. >> brian: they don't have time to cover it all. maybe the jeb bush series will have, or the governor christie look back or a look at rand paul. they'll all be running i'm sure on cnn. >> steve: maybe you were eating magic carp, because in our world these movie also never be made. >> anna: moving on, we've got something that's a little interesting to make you scratch your head. it's about the "50 shades of gray" book. it's mostly stay at home moms and young girls that like it. but nope. forget the koran. this book is the number one requested book by gitmo detainees? >> brian: really? >> steve: yeah, according to a democrat from virginia, he was part of a democrat delegation, went down to dit mow and he was told the number one book for them. interestingly, the high value detainees read it first in english, but they requested to read it again. so they translated it back into
their native tongue. one other thing he said is none of the high value detapeees are taking part in the hunger strike. you heard all about the hunger strike? no. the whole time he was there, one of the high valued detainees screamed the whole time at him. >> brian: right. by the way, they think he's lost it. >> steve: yeah. they think he's crazy. >> brian: he was supposed to be the 20th hijacker and there was some problem with his travel, so he orchestrated things from pakistan. he apparently hears voices. >> steve: we got some headlines for you. a young girl from arkansas fighting for her life this morning. she got a rare and deadly brain eating disease after spending some time at a water park. 12-year-old is in critical condition with parasitic meningitis. the centers for disease control say the disease usually causes death within five days. the willow springs water park in arkansas is now shut down. >> brian: anthony wiener coming up short in the polls.
the mayoral hopeful falling from first place to fourth since his latest texts were made public. only 16% of voters support him. to make matters worse, his fellow scandalous colleague won't vote for him. elliott spitzer said he would fire any employee for sexting. >> anna: 38 minutes after the hour. a georgia woman thought she was going crazy when she spotted this 7-foot kfc bucket in her front yard. >> i was driving by. i saw this giant kentucky fried chicken bucket in my yard. and i thought for sure that i was hallucinating, so i called my teen-agers who were at home and had them go outside. >> anna: turns out it belongs to her landlord. he is a collector and he wanted to display it for everybody to see in the front yard there. the woman isn't mad. she says the bucket will make her home hard to miss. turn left at the kentucky fried chicken bucket. >> brian: it's great to be a sign collector, but i'm sure it
was being used by a kentucky fried chicken, don't you think? >> steve: they've updated the logo. it's kfc. >> brian: i didn't know that. >> steve: it's been kfc for a decade. where you been? >> brian: it's not the colonel? >> steve: colonel is still there. but it's kfc. >> brian: it's amazing you can fight in the military and come up with a great batter. >> steve: seven herbs and spice. [ laughter ] what military did he fight in? >> brian: the best. >> steve: meanwhile, new video just in to the fox news room, for the first time this morning we're seeing the damage left behind after explosions rocked a florida propane plant overnight. wofl reporter ryan elijah has the latest breaking details. >> good morning. this was dramatic video. we've seen it through the night. the best way to describe it is horrific and like a war zone. thousands of those cylinders, pretty good sized, 20-pounds, many have been charred. there are buses inside charred. 53,000 of those ignited last
night. it burned for three hours. at one point there was a fear that 15 different employees were missing. as it turns out, they were a block away from where we were and all but eight of those are safe. eight people were hospitalized. four are critical this morning. all men and all suffering major burns. when you look at that dramatic video that we saw last night, somewhat of a minor miracle. they attributed this most likely to human error. state fair marshalls are on the scene and expect more answers tonight. >> steve: we thank you very much. i got a feeling they're going to be short on propane tanks in that neck of the woods. >> brian: go get some kingsford coal. maria, what's going on with the weather? i hear you're following a tropical storm. >> yeah it's a tropical depression in hawaii. but i want to speak to some people out here because we've got a nice crowd going. we do have beautiful weather in new york city. and i came out here and i found someone with a sign that says, 65 years young. so i'm assuming it's your birthday. >> it is. >> happy birthday. and thank you so much for stopping by.

>> anna: yeah. what are they? >> bank fraud, tax fraud, bankruptcy fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, making applications with lies for about 4 1/2 million dollars in loans and mortgages over a three-year period, allegedly lying on a bankruptcy application about whether or not they were receiving other income from the line. charges based upon financial dealings over a time period. obviously it's very, very sad. this is a family with young children and they kind of marched into the american consciousness very quickly back in 2008 unexpected, unanticipated, although they did file for bankruptcy a few years ago. >> anna: we heard about their money troubles in the past. how much of this is just keeping up with the joneses and is this -- i mean, what is their excuse going to be, 'cause their attorney says we look forward to vindicating it? >> it's a 33-page indictment and
it lays out a series of financial transactions involving four different banks in new york and new jersey, three different lending institutions, and what it does is trace this pattern, according to the federal government -- by which they would se create income when they were saying they were bankrupt and make up income, including feud lent w-2's, fraudulent tax returns in order to say they had sufficient income and assets in order to pay back loans. mr. giudici is also charged with a long period for not filing federal income tax returns. >> anna: before 2008. >> yeah. it's kind of surprising and staggering bill of particulars in terms of their financial transactions. i mean, america thought that they had assets and they had the ability to pay for what they were doing. but this unveils something we had never seen. obviously they're innocent until proven guilty. but these are very, very
difficult charges and this is a joint investigation that involves the irs, the fdic, bankruptcy officials, a lot of things. >> anna: we look forward to seeing how it all shakes out. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> anna: women in the military will soon be heading for the front lines. but our next guest, a retired army colonel, says it's a dangerous decision that will make our military weaker. he's here to defend those controversial statements. first, let's check in with bill hemmer to see what's going on toe top of the hour. >> good morning to you. breaking news on that plant explosion you've been talking about, what learning more is coming up. republicans say they found more irs abuse. we'll explain all of this. is the president looking for more spending? will he get it? we'll debate that. a giant hole found in the sun. what gives up there for us here? see you in ten minutes on "america's newsroom" [ female announcer ] it balances you...

obama will be allowed to fight for our country on the front lines for the first time. >> men and women alike, everyone is committed to doing the job, fighting and dying together. and the time has come for our policies to recognize that reality. >> brian: but the reality is our military might have to lower its standards in order to help those women qualify for combat. should fairness come before fighting ability? retired lieutenant colonel robert mcguiness joins us now. the author of "deadly consequences," how cowards are pushing women into combat. they are on the front lines now. you're not saying women on front lines who are taking bullets for us now shouldn't be. you're saying that we shouldn't be lowering the standards to put them there? >> we shouldn't lower the standards. we have 204,000 women that are in the armed forces doing a phenomenal job. some of them have demonstrated gallantry. keep in mind, a counter
insurgency is different. what i'm talking about is on one side, people calling for equality. on the other side, people saying no, we've got to maintain our fighting edge. there are differences between men and women and those are reconciled or explained in the science. what we ought to be asking and neither side asked is what kind of country sends its women into ground combat and are we that type of country? i will tell you, our founders were very clear in whose responsibility this is. article 1, section 8 of the constitution says congress, you set the rules. ground combat and are we that type of country? i will tell you our founders were very clear in who is responsibility this is. article 1, section 8 of the constitution, congress you set the rules you decide who will serve in the armed forces. what happened here, congress relegated that in the administration. we haven't had a full hearing in the house armed services in 34
years, nor the? senate armed services in 34 years. don't let the administration do it because administrations come and go ask kill them. the reality is that most women can't do it. a few might be able to and if they do, that congress has got to make a tough decision. do we want to put young men and young women together with a sexual dynamics and the inevitable consequences of that mixture? and congress has relegated its responsibility. they're leaving it to the administration. the administrations charged by radical feminists that says no, this is about equality. we could care less about the readiness of the force. we need congress to step in. >> brian: you're here today because you feel as though diversity is taking precedence over readiness and you want to
