tv FOX and Friends Saturday FOX News October 5, 2013 3:00am-7:01am PDT
>> hey there, good morning it is saturday, october the 5th. i'm anna kooiman. we do gipp with a fox news alert. the united states facing multiple severe weather threats. at the same time tornadoes spotted in the northwest. winter-like weather buried wyoming and south dakota and snow and tropical storm karen continuing path towards the gulf coast. we have all the latest on this wild weather. >> while the white house and congress continue punches members of generations continue to break barricades at world war ii monument. we will hear from them coming up. >> nor rain nor sleet nor front lawn. could this the latest postal worker of all time?
[ laughter ] you are running over my rose bushes. ha? "fox & friends" starts right now. beep, beep. and how perfect did that lawn look, too? the homeowner was out there probably with scissors. >> i wonder why they are bankrupt? >> well, they are not saving money on gas. can you see that hello, everyone, welcome to "fox & friends" on this saturday morning. feels like an indian summer here in new york. is that the accurate term indian summer? >> i think that is that is not the case in the rest of the country. >> we have got some extreme weather, don't we? we have our rick reichmuth coming in here. 15 people hurt after a tornado slammed through the great plains. multiple tornadoes, one of
them a mile wide spotted in nebraska, south dakota. >> the latest coming out of wayne, nebraska. they counted 17 possible twisters yesterday. only six have been confirmed so far. >> this is the same system that dumped 33 inches of snow? south dakota, killing three people. for more we can look at today check in with rick reichmuth. hey, rick. >> all of that going on. snow on one side of the storm. severe weather on the other. tropical storm i'm going to tell you about as well. wayne, nebraska was the town that took the brunt of that from the tornado at least most of the damage because the tornado went right through nebraska. northeastern nebraska. very oddly. these are are a bunch of little towns. all of these towns dotted across the areas have anywhere from 300 to about 1,000 people from that norfolk over towards sioux city area. eventually went on either side of sioux city tonight. a lot of damage in there.
we are very fortunate fatalities at this point. that is certainly great news. that storm continues to pull off towards the east. you see where that yellow is there anywhere from around milwaukee to madison to wisconsin tells and alls way down into arkansas the threat for severe weather today. i think maybe an isolated tornado or two. yesterday we had the large destructive tornadoes. i don't think that's what we're looking at today. probably more damaging winds and little bit of hail with it it still snow on the back side of this storm. maybe another 3 to 5 inches a few spots across south dakota and north dakota. the heaviest of the snow that fell is gone. this right here is the other story talking about this week. this is tropical storm karen and barely tropical storm. we had thought this potentially had some chance to strength maybe to a hurricane before making landfall. that is out of question at this point. you see you all of that energy there. no activity going on at the center. you have to have those two things come together. to have any significant storm going on here.
you will see this continue to pull off to the east. getting battered with waves. not really anything in the way of storm surge. see some areas maybe two to three inches of rain. nothing that's going to cause any big impacts in across the gulf. that's good news. another tropical system without having big impact. >> was i right about the indian summer? doesn't it come after like your first big frost? >> i don't know the answer to that question. i don't know if -- you know. >> somebody call google or wikipedia quick. >> we will call the chief meteorologist and find out. [ laughter ] >> well, it's not like like a technical meteorological question. >> thanks, rick. >> we are going to get to your headlines now because we do have brand new photos to show you at the moment after a harrowing road rage beating that happened earlier this week. everybody has been talking about it. one photo shows the driver of the suv lying on the ground after he was beaten. the other photo shows his
wife and daughter looking on. police are hoping these photos can help identify more of the bikers involved. we are also learning that at least one undercover cop was a part of the motorcycle gang but he didn't intervene because he said he didn't want to blow his cover. last night, the man you see smashing his helmet 38-year-old reginald chance turned himself in to police and is now in custody. well, gitmo prisoner now a free man because is he considered no threat? ebrahim was captured with al qaeda fighters in 2001 and sent to guantanamo bay. he suffers from schizophrenia and diabetes. after more than a decade behind bars he has been released because officials say he is too sick to be a threat. he reportedly will return to his native sudan. and a fugitive witness wanted for getting in the aaron hernandez murder case is captured by u.s. marshals. alexander bradley appeared in court friday after being
found at his girlfriend's home earlier in the day. he split town this summer before testifying about a double homicide case linked to the former football player. bradley is the same man that filed a lawsuit against hernandez for allegedly shooting him in the face outside of a nightclub in february. long lost work of leonardo da vinci was found. pulled from a swiss bank vault from 200 other workers. appears to it be a complete version of pencil sketch. believe the paint something one of da vinci's master pieces but further analysis still needs to be done. will this be be the new mona lisa. >> i love how these people find this stuff in their attics. grandma just handed this down. >> unbelievable. >> today is day five of the government shut jowp and
thousands of federal workers are out of work and the blame game continues. are we getting any closer to a deal? the house was at work yesterday passing some small spending bills to fund the government agencies. today, another rare weekend session is scheduled. >> elizabeth prann is live in washington with the very latest for us. elizabeth, what is going on'? >> well, lots going on. the back and forth which started the week is ending the week in which really no clear resolution. the outside strategy on this current crisis has been passing smaller funding bills that would make it difficult for any lawmakers to oppose really. they voted on half a dozen this week alone. two of those past. one bill would open fema and national weather service ahead of that tropical storm. another would fund nutrition services for women and children in poverty. the white house has threatened to veto those measures. they say they want to force speaker john boehner and the house leadership to pass a clean stop gap funding bill. speaker boehner says he won't let the nation default. he also said he wasn't planning to just add to the country's debt. today, the house is due to
vote to make sure federal workers get become pay after this is all over. the white house has said that they do support it, but we will certainly see how they act. tucker, anna, clayton, pack to you guys. >> thanks a lot. elizabeth prann for us in wught. americans are united on one thing. they are disgusted with the behavior of the federal government. the white house trying to blame republicans. republicans blaming the white house for the shutdown. people across the country believe it's both their faults. >> they are not even discussing tactics right now. it's all about process. who is not talking to who. you are not talking to me. i'm not talking to you. we can't even get on the phone. the president yesterday using pretty heated rhetoric. john boehner firing back about some things he is hearing as he will. take a listen. >> when it comes to negotiations, i said i am happy to have negotiations with the republicans and speaker boehner on a whole range of issues. but we can't do it with a gun held to the head of the american people.
>> >> this morning i get the "wall street journal" out. it says we don't care how long this lasts because we are winning. this isn't some damn game. the american people don't want their government shutdown and neither do i. >> it seems that the initial thinking from both sides really was that this potential shutdown, when it was just a potential shutdown would hurt the g.o.p. more than it would hurt democrats. but it doesn't seem like that necessarily is really the case. isn't the president supposed to be the adult in the room? the adult at the table between all of these bickering factions and at some point it seems that the american people are going to get fed up and think that the president is the big figure head of the united states government and a symbol of everything going on in washington so those poll numbers may continue to plummet. we do want to show you a fox news poll over what the american people are thinking. who was responsible for this shutdown. republicans like boehner? well, 25%. president obama 24%.
tea partiers like cruz 17%. democrats like reid 8%. everybody 20%. so nobody is really winning here. >> a little background on what the speaker of the house was referring to he had the "wall street journal" in his hand. "wall street journal" piece came out. they quoted unnamed white house source saying we don't mind how long this goes on because we are winning. the white house has denied saying that, but it's demonstrablably true it's clearly how the president feels. the longer this goes on, the better it is for the white house. that's one of the reasons they have been consistently torquing up the pressure, punishing the american people, closing down jogging paths. spending more money to shut it down than it would take to keep it going. >> don't you think that eventually it's going to make his poll numbers plummet? is he not the big figure head in washington? is he not the one that is supposed to be the adult in the room. >> the whole point from the white house point of view is to make this as painful as they possibly make it going out of their way to
punish the american people with the hope that republicans will be blamed. make no mistake their strategy is to hurt the public with this government shutdown. >> they learned something from 2011 when they negotiated with republicans. i don't think i have ever seen the white house this firm on anything. they have been absolutely firm. we are not going to negotiate with republicans at all on this. things are getting hurt too. you mentioned national parks and running paths. we saw what happened with the world war ii memorial this week. you remember when a couple members of congress came down there with some of the members of the greatest generation to try to go to this open air memorial. this world war ii memorial. and some park rangers were saying you can't come in here. i'm sorry, you can't come in here. well this now, they are adding a wire around the outside of this thing to make sure that people don't try to break through. this happened last night on greta. take a listen. >> we're going to break that down. >> they are not going to stop you? >> huh-uh, no way. nothing else did. >> what do you make of this fence around the world war ii memorial with a sign that says closed?
>> what a bunch of -- stuff. you you don't want me to it say what i really think this is cable. >> this sun conscionable. unbelievable that they would pull this kind of crap on people like us. >> now, bear in mind, folks, this sin feweriating. think about these brave men who stormed the beaches of normandy on d-day to try to get into france and stop the horrible atrocities that were unfolding in europe. you can't even go to the cemeteries that are in normandy in france those united states cemeteries in france are also shut down. our government shutdown has also -- if they wanted to fly here to normandy to see where their fellow comrades had died on the beaches of normandy. >> how you can shut down a cemetery or park. it costs nothing to keep a piece of open land open. it costs nothing to keep the world war ii open. the only reason they are doing this is to make people suffer. it's appalling.
the government is acting as your enemy? has this ever acted before? i have never seen anything like that. >> the republican national committee is offering to keep it open so veterans from honor flight are going to be able to ogo and see this because who does it honor? it honored them. it doesn't seem fair. especially we are going to talk later in the show, too, about some things that are continuing to be funded. and president obama has offered to pay out of his own pocket for the museum culture. republicans national committee paying for this. we will talk about that coming up in the show as well. >> one the bikers that terrorized the family through the streets of new york city. he is not facing any charges. why some say is he getting away with a crime. >> caught on camera, a postal worker taking the easy way out. the easiest possible way, in fact, driving right across the front lawn to deliver the mail. what happened to her after this video came to light. ♪ ♪

j. >> it's the road wage story that are parked outrage across the country. motorcycle ride turned violent after hit riders on highway. >> the manhattan d.a.'s office making decision not to face charges one of the men believed to have terrorized the driver and beat his family and scared his family half to death. the two undercover cops were at the mob at the scene of the assault and did nothing to stop it a
former nypd detective and the president of cmp security group. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> these guys, under cover police officers, sworn to uphold public safety watched this happen and did nothing. >> we are not sure what they saw or where they were with the group. this is a very large group of biker who's are driving long lower manhattan. you know, we don't know if they were making calls that they are seeing this and, you know, what's happening. they are sworn to uphold the law. and maybe one of them, if they were up in the front, stopped the assault. we don't know that but, this will help the investigation let's talk about the investigation now. this will help the investigation under cover can give testimony because that's what they are used to doing. >> certainly, it doesn't do anything the revelation out this morning is they didn't want to blow their cover is
that okay for them to do? >> it depends where they were in the group. if he they were in the back of the group they may not have even seen the incident. we don't know where they were as yet. the fact they are making these arrests so quickly makes me think that one or two of them have given information very quickly to the police not to blow their cover but to also make sure that the people are arrested. >> they may be making the arrest. but then what's happening with the d.a.'s office? a lot of people are wondering how on earth does these people being arrested but then they are being charged and prosecuted. >> one of them it looks like the d.a.'s office has d.p. the case. declined prosecution on the case. the d.a. has either turned him as a witness and maybe felt they didn't have a strong enough case against him as they do other people and they want this person as a biker to give information or to bear testimony in court. or they just didn't feel like they had enough to go ahead. >> didn't have enough to go ahead. we have a lot of this on tape. how would you respond? you are in the car with your wife and small child. you you are surrounded by
100-plus bikers. smashed the windows of your car and grab you out and beat you you. that's horrifying. how could that happen? >> it is terrifying. i can't imagine what that family is going through. it looks from the tape and thank god there is that tape from the biker's cam because otherwise it would all be conjecture at this point in time. it appears to me that the motorist with his wife and child accidently bumped that bike. it didn't look like he purposely did it. it didn't look like it was a road rage thing on his part. and then they attack him it had to be terrifying. >> so wild. you said that you have seen something similar like this happen and multiple people in the building at fox have seen the same thing. this is raising awareness about it. >> thanks for having me. >> still ahead, she has been missing for nearly seven years. this morning police say they may have the key to solving the madeleine mccann case. we will tell what you it is coming up. >> plus, you may know someone like this. they are happy all the time. so what's their secret? and can it be learned? we'll be right back.

same genes, but have completely different visions of the world. levels of happiness, their personality trait. >> the research you have done in this book is remarkable and i read it cover to cover this week. i want to encourage everyone to go out and pick it up. why some people remain happy in the midst of chaos and others seem to to weather it how does that happen? >> so much that's out of our control right now with what's going on in the world and our families. what we found is one thing that is within our control is our ability to respond to the world. we did a study published in the top psychology journal that we did with two researchers from yale, alli crumb and peter and we went in and looked at how people perceived vets. and if people see stress as just bad for them which is what we normally tell people, stress is related to the 10 leading causes of death and disease. if we can change minds. what is going on in the world as a challenge instead of as a threat it turns out stress levels remain the same. headaches, back jane and fatigue drop by 23%.

visualization and actual experience. the reason that's important is as you journal, you double the meaningful experience. you just reexperience it. and it turns out it's one of the most powerful ways of getting people to realize there so much meaning already embedded in our lives. >> i like this when you write down checklist of to do task. write down things you have already accomplished. i have already gone to the dry cleaner and i put that in my to do list. >> i wrote down that i wrote a checklist so i can can immediately check of it o your brain accelerators towards goals when you see progress, when we set resolutions and talk about our day. talking about all the things we haven't done yet. what turns your brain on to the highest level is seeing you have made progress. check those off and speed you towards those goals. >> go out and pick up this book. called "before happiness" grab it on amazon and kindle. great to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> obama care one week old. web site already down for repairs. you might need this

>> in news that will shock no one. hillary clinton may run for president. rumors of have a possible run have been years. flaring clinton herself. told a group of political leaders yesterday she would seriously begin a white house run next year. >> beer and wine. dollar stores in arizona. stores are adding alcohol to their offerings. about 40 general stores across the state granted liquor licenses in the past few months and another 30 stores have applications pending. tucker had an update half of the country just moved to arizona. >> thank you, clayton. well, as the shutdown heads into fifth day. the "wall street journal" reported yesterday that an unnamed white house official said in this: quote we are winning it doesn't matter how long the shutdown last is what
matters is the end result. here to react is texas governor louie gohmert. thanks for joining us this morning. >> good to be with you. >> the white house has denied saying that quote in effect. it is true, is it not? >> this is their attitude. this is what harry reid and the democrats in the senate have said. and that became abundantly clear to most of us on capitol hill. but before the shutdown, when we had offered three alternatives. three compromises and the last, the fourth, was us just saying all right, all right. here is no offer. go along with whatever. let's just work it out. we are appointing negotiators called conferees and harry reid said we are not even appointing anybody to talk. we don't care to talk because we're going to win this showdown. and then you may have seen, tucker, but there was a park ranger that said it was disgusting, but they t as they ordered to make
could. well, we knew that when you start putting barricades at open parking spaces, or turn around for buses at mt. vernon or shutting down facilities all over the country. that don't get a dime of federal money, they are run locally, then it was clear this administration meant to hurt the american people, and then we find out the military that gets their orders from their commander and chief, the military has ordered catholic priests who are independent contractors that if they showed up, they could be arrested, they could be glind, they are not to show up and do mass. this is an outrage. they are really trying to play some kind of civilly game when it is about the american people and doing what's right for them. >> priest can be arrested for baptizing babies. it's really unbelievable. yet, this same week obama care goes online. it's a disaster and maybe even worse than predicted. yet the conversation is all about the government shutdown.
whose strategy is this? this doesn't help republicans at all. who came up with this? >> well, it wasn't a strategy. other than we knew that a majority of the american people were being hurt by obama care. we knew the economy was being hurt, that people were having -- they weren't able to keep their doctor. they weren't able to keep their insurance. the ones that could keep their insurance, shot up like crazy for nearly all americans. and so it is an outrage. it is not our strategy. we just want to do what's best for the american people. and so at least we're asking not a whole lot but the last thing we did before the negotiator was, look, let's at least give the same breaks to the american people that the president is giving to big business and his cronies. that should not be too much to ask. >> no, it certainly shouldn't be. congressman louie gohmert from texas. thanks for joining us this

when i first heard stanton i thought i can't believe that that small town getting the start of this and going over towards wayne. a lot of damage. a lot of damage for a very small town. obviously everybody there knows everybody and is impacted like that. the big tornado tracking on the ground for quite a while. eventually they say 17 tornadoes reported. same tornado continuing to drop down through the area. tracked from just around the nor fork, area which is where stanton is over towards wayne and sioux city and parts of iowa. today this entire -- i should say northwestern parts of iowa. today this storm pulls off towards the east and threat from severe weather from parts of wisconsin all the way down through the mid mississippi river valley. parts of the ohio river valley and then down towards arkansas. i think more we're talking about the threat for some strong winds and some hail but we can't rule out an isolated tornado. this gives you the picture. you see these pictures? 90 degrees in memphis today? very warm conditions behind it? much cooler air. you guys were talking about indian summer. indian summer. >> am i right about that or
wrong? >> different reasonings have different definitions for indian summer. but in general it's a prolonged period of temps above 70 degrees once you are into the fall. >> once you are into the fall. after the first frost? >> in the northeast it's after your first frost. in different places it has different subtle definitions but the general is a prolonged period of temps above 70. >> all i know is it's hot and ridiculous. that's my. >> and i love it it i'm not complaining. >> brutal hot. >> thank you, rick. as the sunrises on the capitol, the government remains shutdown for the fifth straight day in the row. the blame game continues. are we getting closer to a deal. the white house is planning a rare weekend session passing small spending bills to fund certain government agencies yesterday. elizabeth prann is live in washington with the very latest with what's going on. elizabeth? >> good morning. the immediate answer to your question is lawmakers like you said remain at odds. not unlike what we saw at the beginning of the week. the house strategy has been to pass smaller funding bills to get anything moving to shake up the stalemate. making it difficult for any
lawmakers to oppose half a dozen were presented in the past few days alone. just yesterday, two were passed. one bill would open fema, and the national weather service ahead of the tropical system approaching the u.s. another would fund nutrition services for women and children in poverty. now, in a statement, house speaker john boehner said in quote today this is referring to yesterday. the house passed two more straightforward bills to keep critical parts of the government running while senate democrats allow their shutdown to continue it hurting hard working people. the white house has said they would threaten to veto those measures trying to force speaker boehner and the house to pass a clean stop gap funding bill. senate leaders also say they are ♪ supporting many quote continuing resolutions. today like you mentioned the house is due to work make sure federal workers get pay after this is over. the white house says it strongly supports it so we'll see how they act on it, anna, republicans are
not talking about specifically what they want scaled back. obama care is not specific programs not talking about that we are talking about process now and the back and forth yelling and bickering betwee sides. they say you are not talking to me. you are not talking to me. and the president is saying this. take a listen. >> when it comes to negotiations, i said i am happy to have negotiations with the republicans and speaker boehner on a whole range of issues. but we can't do it with a gun held to the head of the american people. >> this morning, i get the "wall street journal" out, and it says well we don't care how long this lasts, because we are winning. this isn't some damn game. >> it might be to one side and that was an unnamed source in that "wall street journal" article if you read it yesterday. and speaker boehner saying, look, the white house, the democrats are entrenched on this. they are not budging on this. they are treating it as if they're winning this and
they are sitting there with their arms crossed and not going to talk to us at all. >> is this a good idea for them to try to infli flick as much pain potentially on the american people or could this potentially back fire. we heard from rand paul saying they may not have test polled the non-negotiating factor. at some point, you know, could the tables turn and then back fire against them? >> well, stories like this may haven that process. it turns out that priests who work for the u.s. military have been told, catholic priests that if they show up for work, even on a volunteer basis. not expecting any pay at you will a and perform their religious duties offering sacramentos during the troops. baptizing children and officiating at weddings they could be arrested. that is the position of the u.s. government of the obama administration. >> that sounds like a joke. >> it does. >> threatening priests with arrests for voluntarily performing a sacrament? >> they go to the military base the group specifically
archdiocese for the military services here is what they had to say about it. john slather is the executive direct of it. >> arrested, thrown in jail for. this so you think is there a way around it? could you get some volunteers from the community, some civilians to come on to the bases? that apparently is not being allowed either. >> so the president's political advantage first amendment. the white house attempting to inflict as much pain as possible on the american people, including on our troops in uniform supersedes the right of a priest to voluntarily perform a religious sacrament. >> you sound shocked. >> that's actually crossed the line prosecute political posturing to authoritarianism. to threaten priests with arrest. >> tomorrow is sunday so it's going to be effecting a lot of people. >> it goes further than that if you want to go to any of the military
memorials in washington, d.c., if you want to go to the world war ii memorial or go out to any of the national parks, you are going to have a problem with that as well. national park rangers are basically being told they are having to deal with this situation. you saw the yelling match that unfolded earlier this week between i think it was a senator or was it representative, a republican representative who was basically yelling at a park ranger saying you are not going to let in this veteran here who is in a wheelchair into the world war ii memorial? >> because it costs more to keep the veterans out than it would to just leave the place unguarded and unbarricaded. >> there is no wall around it. >> i was in wyoming this week. a lot of -- the county there is federal land. closing bridges and parking lots. they had armed guard stationed all over the town preventing people from driving on government roads because of the shutdown. there is no justification for that. >> look at this. they are putting up fences now. they put up a wire around the world war ii memorial. so it is an open air memorial so people can walk through. now they are putting up wire fences. >> what does it cost them to print those signs and
put up those barricades and keep armed guards? the government is basically on strike at this point. the obama administration is on strike trying to hurt the country for their political gain. >> this is pulling on the heart strings of one of the world war ii memorial but also it's messing up vacation plans, wedding plans and things like that for people. >> it's pointless, back off, pull back armed guards stop pulling off placards and jogging paths and parking lots they might save more money. that wouldn't achieve their goal which is to win this battle politically. >> we do have some more headlines to get on this saturday morning. the woman shot and killed in washington, d.c. on thursday may have been delusional. homeland security officials say miriam carrie believed president obama was trying to communicate with her through radio waives. the 34-year-old led police on the chase after trying to plow her car into a white house barricade. getting a better idea how chaotic it was for law enforcement during the incident.

students were grateful to him for the lessons that they learned from him and that's why they all came back. everybody flew in from all over the country and made music for him one last time. >> joanne, what is it like when your kids are about to, you know, start a new school year and there is a tough teacher that they are going i don't want -- are you saying, you know what that mr. k helped me maybe he will help you too. >> i try to use those lessons. melanie and i have talked about this a lot about how we try to bring this in our own life. i will tell you the most interesting thing, we really thought the book just came out strings attached just came out and it really is -- unfarn issue inned truth about a very tough teacher. we expected enter going to pulling on flack jackets for people saying oh my god how you can allocate this. the response so far has been overwhelmingly positive. we get all these notes back from parents and from

did you guys hear about this crazy story this week here in midtown, manhattan? it happened on the west side highway. of course, they had this range recovery barreling down the highway. surrounded by all of these bikers when a huge brawl ensues as they track him down. he makes his way into midtown manhattan. we are learning more details about this. i'm sure you saw this story exactly who was involved in the biker group as this unfolded. turns out at least two of the members of this group were under cover new york city police officers who apparently saw what happened. the driver was pulled out of the range recovery. can you see there one of the bikers smashing the driver's side window with his helmet. pulled this guy out. beat him badly in the street in front of his wife and small child and apparently the cops who were part of this mob did nothing to stop it. now, we are hearing reports that the reason they didn't act in the defense of this motorist who was being beaten was because they didn't want to lose their jobs and their pensions. >> right. so we had tom rough kin on
earlier a former nypd detective we asked him to way in and here is what he had to say. >> they are sworn to uphold the law and maybe one of them if they were up in the front stopped the assault. we don't know that this will help the investigation. let's talk about the investigation now. this will help the investigation and determine who was responsible because these officers, especially the undercover can give testimony because that's what they're used to doing. >> maybe it would have been nice if they stopped the assault before the motorist was beaten in public for the crime of being, you know, in the middle of a biker group that took over the highway. and, yet, apparently they did nothing. there is no video of them stopping this assault. maybe we will find out differently. at this point, it looks like they didn't. >> it's amazing when they respond to things so quickly in this city, here is what the district attorney's office says. prematurely charging individuals with low level crimes does not further the goals of the investigation it could weaken the case as we expect to bring against perpetrators of serious crimes.
>> low level crimes? >> here is what they are talking about here. allen edwards one of the bikers has been arrested by nypd, has not, you know, been charged and formally prosecuted by the district attorney's office. so, that's why they're coming forward saying. this prematurely, yes, could it hurt them in the future? i mean, investigation? >> they're looking at cameras and all these photos right now. >> we saw the tape though. >> right. it's not that easy. can you see their faces? you have to like decipher license plates. match cameras around the city. probably not something they can do. this would be a technological nightmare for them to have to look through. pass by this building. get that tape. pass by this building get that tape. let's also then see the patches that are on their jackets. we have to track down where that patch was. what biker group is that? seems to me a lot of work to do. >> here is the problem with this. if i'm driving down the west side highway with my wife and baby in the back of the car and i i am pulled out of my vehicle because some biker smashed my window and beaten me in the street. that does not qualify as a low level crime.
at least not to me. that's a serious crime that should be taken seriously by prosecutors and law enforcement. >> then you have seen some the local media reports in particular here around new york, a very liberal state, mind you, and they are almost blaming the driver for all of this. and, you know. >> that's -- >> -- the sob stories from the biker who's have been injured in this. of course, nobody deserves to be hurt. but didn't seem like they were valuing their own lives by surrounding moving cars on a highway like this. and this is something they do all the time. a lot of people around fox use this west side highway and they say they have seen similar situations happen. >> we have more on that story coming up here on the show. >> we do have other headlines to get to though 36 minutes after the hour now. yankee slugger alex rodriguez suing major league baseball and commissioner bud selig over what he calls a witch-hunt. he says they are trying to destroy his reputation and cost millions of dollars over baseball's pedestrian

service in dallas and i do cleaning business consulting. i took a phone call from a woman who called just to ask for a quote for services. and she told me she couldn't afford it at that time. she wasn't working. she had cancer i made the decision that day in my company we would give away free cleaning to any woman who called for help and told us she had cancer. >> given back to the rest are of the family too. it has got to be so tough on them as well. watching mom go through all of this. how does it work exactly? you say you started several years ago. not just one made service? >> well, since then in 2006. i turned it into a nonprofit. we recruit made services all -- maid services all across the country. so far we have given away over 14,000 free cleanings. we have a thousand maid service was in the program. what we are doing because of breast cancer awareness month is suwannee river and -- swiffer and wal-mart have partnered with us to get the word out about this

they basically said to him stay out of the room. we don't want you in the room. so, i think that might be what's really going on here. >> well, every moment we are talking about the government shutdown, we are not talking about the disaster of obama care and its rocky implementation this week. that's got to help the white house, no? >> well, i don't know that this whole thing helps them much one way or othe other because what is now really happening is the whole debt ceiling debate coming is really what's going to start hurting here because if the markets start reacting next week which i think they will, it's really going to be bad for the when we. and -- for the economy and the president is going to the bear the brunt of that burden. >> you think the public will take a look at that time that debate and say the white house is responsible for this? yeah, i think they are going to take a sharst hit. he is the president he has to start leading the conversations here. that's what presidents do. he has all the tools. he has the oval. he has camp david. he has the helicopters and

true at this point in time but that's not what the people were told when the citations were issued. and i personally was not issued one. but i do have a sign in my yard. >> why does this personally offend you, imette? >> well, it offends me for many reasons one, it's an infringement on our first amendment rights and, secondly. as you stated earlier, bartow is a very patriotic conservative town and like i said, it why are we protecting the constitution and then denying the right to enjoy it? >> well, and you are not alone in this either, emit. a lot of people in the city are thinking about going to the commissioners meeting on monday night. what do you think needs to be done? what should be changed?

and that cell you see down to the south both of those tracked on both sides of the sioux city area and unfortunately not going right downtown sioux city you see both of those continuing to drop' off those tornadoes. a rough night that we had last night. today we still have the threat for severe weather. it's from parts of wisconsin all the way down through parts of the lower ohio river valley and in towards that mid mississippi valley. what we see today will be more in the terms of severe winds and hail but we can't rule out an isolated tornado. we won't see any of those long track tornadoes like we saw yesterday. other storm is tropical storm karen. earlier we thought there might be a threat for it to get to hurricane strength before it makes landfall. not going to happen at all. in fact, all of the activity here has been pulled away from the center of the storm. the center of the storm way over here and all the activity this way. when they are apart like that, that does not bode well for any kind of strengthening. guys, i think we are going to be spared again this tropical system turning into nothing. >> after super storm sandy

things to go ahead and lou things to open back up. in politics, reality is not reality. perception is reality. the perception is that the republicans shut the government down. here is my bigger colonel. the reason why i thought it was ridiculous thing to do. we were headed towards october 1st, the launch towards obama care, another disaster. the referendum of obama care election of 2014. right there in the nic of the moment, the republicans took the news, turned it into a rescue rope and pulled the democrats out of the fire and allowed them to change the subject from obama care to a shutdown for which they get blamed. >> you think that if the government had not shut down and we had spent this last week talked about the flawed implementation of obama care that the public would have a clearer sense of what a disaster this program is. >> absolutely. the story of the week was not obama care. it was the secondary story. the incredible glitches. the cost overruns, that was buried down on page b 4. what we had was shut down.
now, i think the shutdown has been handled ridiculously by the white house and the democrats but it doesn't really matter. as the polls show people are just mad at everyone. the republicans had an advantage and they lost the advantage by the manner in which they played the game. >> do you think there is a potential the longer that the shutdown goes on that it will actually back fire against president obama and the democrats? isn't the president supposed to be the adult at the room at the table who is supposed to get everyone on common ground? >> absolutely, anna. the key of the executive whether the president, the governors, they all have to understand that they're the ones that bring people to the table and say guys, come on, let's work this out. he has no interest in working it out. look i have said this all the time. the democrats wanted a shutdown. they needed a shutdown. and as much as they may not believe in public prayer, they prayed for a shutdown. it was their rescue. they needed this to happen and it did. >> senate majority leader harry reid taking to the floor talking about decorum and the rules of order on the senate floor saying
this is completely out of order. this is completely out of line harry reid doesn't appear to be budging or moving towards a compromise either on the senate side. >> harry reid has blocked every house bill. it would have opened up all the national parks and museums that would have fully funded national guard and reserve units. in other words, let's not make this painful to people who have nothing to do with our inner conflicts in washington. but and i think you guys have pointed it out. the white house needs this to be painful. they have purposefully gone out and said to world war ii veterans average aide age in wheelchairs. you can't come to the memorial. shut down the cemetery in normandy. insult for people who for a year and a half ago go and pay tribute to these incredible heros pay their lives so we are living free today and not speaking japanese or german. this is absurd. >> now the white house, the administration has told military chaplains on contract.
roman catholic chaplain minister to our troops that if they volunteer to minister to the troops to say the liturgy they could be arrested. >> it's gone from being a hard ball political game to being outrageous affront to basic human decency and liberty. >> let's look ahead because this is infuriating so many of our viewers this morning. when you think of all the big programs we have to get to, talk about immigration. we were talking about trying to cut some of these run away entitlement programs. >> the president admitted that he was able to come to the table and work on all of that. it that just dead? >> the atmosphere is toxic in washington i don't see all of that happening. the tragedy is this. the president has this attitude i'm not going to negotiate with congress. because they are not going to get what they want. they are not going to get anything. >> politics is about not getting everything you want. but if you want to have the approach of i want it all and i want it now, you get nothing and you get it forever. i think sometimes the republicans have played that game foolishly, but
the president is playing that game. the idea that i don't have to work with the congress. basic constitution 101, they are a third branch of government equal to his branch of government. part of the reason the framers created this very awkward cumbersome, even sometimes disgusting system is so that one person, ie a president, couldn't just run over the elected representatives. >> that's exactly right. >> let's keep looking down the line. october 17th is not far away from that debt ceiling and we're learning from the treasury wouldn't be long before we get behind on our bills. what does that look like? >> i think the president on this one. i have to say the president is right. is he right about the debt ceiling. now, let me be clear. the 2006 version of president barack obama, when he said just continuing to raise the debt ceiling without any thought about how much money we are borrowing from the chinese, he said it was irresponsible and unpatriotic. so, i think that president or that barack obama was probably more accurate than the barack obama who says
i'm not going to negotiate anything. it's going to be my way or the highway. and i think maybe he will get the highway. >> you can give us just in 15 seconds you're john boehner what do you do next? >> i think they are now already halfway through the river. no point turning around. keep swimming, you don't have a choice. you put yourself there and hold the line. and don't surrender, even though the debt ceiling without some serious spending cuts because there is no point in a white flag at this moment. >> all right. who do you have coming up on the show? >> we have jason result myer one of the democrats who lost his seat because of obama care. james lancaster ford will will -- lank ford and scott brown's daughter an amazing country singer going to be singing a very lovely patriotic song. >> very tall by the way. >> i will stand on a box. >> governor huckabee, the huckabee show is 8:00 p.m. on the huckabee show. great to see you. >> thanks.

>> the irs targeting scandal broke our next guest was not surprised. >> >> hundred years and evergrowing government has crept into every facet of our lives. our businesses, our homes, our churches, our charities, even our healthcare. >> not surprised but he did wanted to do something about it. so he made a film called "unfair, exposing the irs." joining us now is one of the producers. also a radio talk show host craig bergman. >> nice to see you, craig. >> nice to be here on "fox & friends." >> a lot of people talk and get fired up about this and they don't do anything about it you decided to do something about it? >> next april 15th is the 100th anniversary of you having to pay a direct tax to your government. we thought it was time to bring that debate to the american people as a result of these scandals that have broken and say enough is enough. let's start the abolitionist movement against the income tax and the irs. >> you know, first of all, thank you for doing that it's so frustrating watching this scandal which
seems like the signature scandal of the administration using the irs to crush the president's political enemies and it's slipped beneath the waives. the president doesn't seem to have paid a penalty for this. >> that is the sad thing. he probably won't pay a penalty. we should move on from that issue and get he it to the political realm. everyone in politics talks about babies and guns. and you have an issue on those no matter what side you are on. we want to bring the tax policy into clarity. usually tax debate is boring. it's about numbers. it's about percentages. we want to make the moral case that it is unamerican to. violate first, fourth, seventh, eighth amendment rights on this system. >> have you been oa 32-day bus tour. visited 28 states. i don't know if you have upped that number so are fall. what are you seeing when you are out there talking to people. >> we are getting the stories. it's not just conservatives and political enemies and tea party. people who adopt children are audited more often than others because they assume well, if you have the money
to do that you probably made a mistake. let's go after you. they are abusive and violent with it. rightere is the bus we have now. big unfair bus that's going around this country. >> i think more unfair living in washington i can say most people realize. people who are politically well-connected really do get a break in the tax code. carried interested interest being a perfect example. people get carveouts not everybody pays the same taxes. >> they don't. what we want to do is bring that debate to the simple. are you for the old system or are you ready for something new? >> that is movie drives home. >> that's the message. we are making the moral case against it not all the numbers. not the boring tax stuff. this will be a fun documentary and engaging documentary and really educate people from a heart position. >> thank you for doing this. when can people see it? >> april 15th, we hope. tax day 2014. >> perfect. we are going to need some good news on that day and this good news is this documentary may outline exactly how bad the problem is thank you for joining

get a text or call saying i had a good time even if it's directly after the date. >> john? >> that being a man what we learn is that we get some really negative feedback on that and one is the woman -- a lot of women will be this guy, he wants me too much. i'm on to the next thing or is he being too needy and it's a little scary. it's better for a guy to give a little space and build tension for the woman. not wait too long but maybe a day or two. it's not like disrespectful realm. >> real quickly you guys also say that when you get somebody phone number you shouldn't text them too much initially before the first date. >> once again, tmi. just want to make plans. you want to find out where you are meeting and maybe a hi, how are you? that's it. a confirmation if you are going out the next day and leave it be. because you will fall into that slippery slope of what we are talking about too much information. >> guys, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> 27 minutes after the hour. next on the rundown, shocking new details this morning on that biker road

attention to the government shutdown and the closure of the u.s. parks and the world war ii memorial, you may have missed the fact that obama care arrived with a thug. go to the obama care facebook page, you will find it filled with users upset with the new law, take a look at some of these comments. this is from robin who writes on the facebook page, quote: after not being able to get on for the last four days, i decided i'm not going to participate in any way. if the irs tries to levy a tax or penalty on me i will file a petition in tax courts with tens of millions of other americans. >> still not working though did i get 173 emails from healthcare.gov. truly a horrible experience. i wonder if i can get enrolled before december. >> james writes, mr. obama, tear down this web site. >> mr. obama! >> why isn't this site broken down by state instead of having the entire world trying to go on to one site? what genius thought this would work? >> and a i was worried about the government spying on me?
they can't even get this right. >> that's a great point by the way. >> you can just feel the frustration. these are by the way the people wanted to try to sign up for obama care routine maintenance. >> they say at least off peak hours over the weekend. but, still, if you are trying. having a hard time as is demonstrated by these people. >> we had a number of people telling the administration this wasn't going to work, right? that you can't build this type of a thing and roll it out on one day and not think that you are going to have some kind of issue. look at amazon.com. even on the days and weeks leading up to christmas. you know how their web site gets hit. they have got all kinds of backup systems in place at amazon.com. president obama saying this is going to be as easy to do as going to amazon and buying a new tv. >> keep in mind that obama care passed three years ago now. there has been an awful lot of time. this was not a surprise. they knew this day was
coming and they were unable to get their act together in time anyway. what does this tell you about their attempt to take over one fifth of the american economy? they are not competent. >> what does it tell you that they have to sign up for this? they have to do it. trying to get on there. report a guy getting off cobra payments. he got up early in the morning because he was going to get up off peak hours he spent over six hours trying to just log on. he couldn't get past the welcome screen. >> do you know who does not have to sign up for this congress? they carved out an exemption for themselves because why should they live by the laws they pass? >> that one year delay is southbounding better and --ter to a lot of sounding better and better to a lot of americans. more headlines, brand new photos out of the moment it was just taken the moment that it was right after that road rage beating that we have been showing you all week. one photo shows the driver of the suv lying on the

>> well it's day five of the government shutdown. vettel being shut out of the world war ii memorial. rnc has offered to pay to staff and have the memorial open democrats said no, called that a stunt. what is going on in washington? joining us now in the chairman of the republican national committee ryan priebus. thanks for joining us this
morning. >> good morning. >> i'm confused. why would it take any money to keep the world war ii memorial open? it's an open air memorial. why are they closing this in the first place? any idea? >> it's hard to know, tucker. they are actually closing the grass, too, by the way around the mall. so, if you want to know how extreme it's getting. what we looked at we tried to calculate through the park service what five guards would cost for 30 days. just making that estimate. i think they have spent more time though putting the barricades up around the world war ii memorial than they do guarding the memorial. i don't know what there is to guard, however, given the circumstances we offered $150,000 to will park service, they said hey we can't take it because there is a law says you can't do that my view is have congress write a law that says if private people want to pay money that would otherwise be paid for by the taxpayers, why not
take the money? >> well, of course. this is in line with military chaplains who are prohibited under law from volunteering their services to our catholic military personnel. they could be arrested for volunteering. that's crazy. what is the rationale behind that? >> i don't know what the rationale is. but apparently there were lots of folks around the country that have offered to keep the the war 2 memorial. wasn't just the republic national committee. according to the parks service through the "the washington post," there is lots of folks that would pay money to help keep memorials open. i think would think that if this is the case, even after the shutdown is over, it will be over one of these days, that the congress ought to pass a law to allow private people to pay for things that otherwise would cost us money. i mean, it's insanity. >> let's just be honest. you know exactly what's going on here. >> sure. >> the white house is trying to torque up the pressure and punish the
population trying to make the people suffer so they hope they will duane some kind of political advantage out of this. >> we have -- my son goes to school at st. peters on capitol hill. there is a little park across the street that no one is ever at, as far as security or governmental people. there is a toddler's swing set in this grassy area. and they have padlocked and chained the park shut for the government shutdown. i mean, the obama administration obviously wants to make this as painful as possible. we're passing bill after bill to keep memorials open, to keep wic open. to keep the nih open. they are going to vote everything down because they want to make it as painful as possible. this is what this is all about. >> instead of the ceasing let's give cell phones to vagrants program they shut down your kids' swing sets. thank you very much for joining us. >> you bet. >> 12-year-old arrested for bullying his classmate. did the cops go too far or does the punishment fit the

most damage yesterday as a massive storm system passed over the great plains. >> national weather service says 17 possible twisters were counted yesterday. only six have been confirmed. at least 15 people have been hurt. >> this is the same storm system that dumped snow in parts of south dakota and wyoming. totals up to 43 inches. three people in nebraska were also killed in a crash on one of those snowy roadways there. just a mess. let's check in with rick stand buying. >> heavy wet snow also. for people out there shoveling, it's not that light fluffy stuff. it's the break-breaking heart attack stuff. people have to be careful. dangerous storm. snowfall totals are incredible. lead, south dakota, 44 inches, rapid city 29 inches. this is one of your biggest snowstorms that you ever had and we are in early october. to see this this early, unheard of. spectacular snow. still snowing across the western part of south dakota and into north dakota out to the eastern side of it is where we had the
severe weather. the two sides to the same storm. yesterday the severe weather and today we'll see a little bit of severe weather again. i don't think we'll see large long-lived tornados like yesterday. anywhere you see the yellow from parts of wisconsin down towards arkansas and anywhere in between, the threat mostly for strong winds and hail. we'll continue to track that. be very cautious of the potential for severe weather. there's been so much other stuff going on, a significant santa ana wind event across southern california. winds 60 to 70 miles per hour. things are heating up in the canyon. the big fire danger. they are saying this is the worst fire danger they've seen across southern california in the last five years. >> and that's saying a lot. >> they get these events there. today and tomorrow conditions improve by monday. >> i flew into san francisco a week ago. there is just a massive wildfire. there is the fire. so common to see it this time of year. thanks. three minutes after the
hour. we begin headlines with fox news alert a short time ago the military naming the four terrorists they say are responsible for last month's deadly mall attack. few details are known about them at this time. officials say they may have linked to other al qaeda operatives. al shabaab claiming responsibility for the siege that left nearly 70 people dead. the woman who was shot and killed in washington, d.c. on thursday may have been delusional. homeland security officials say merriam kerry believed president obama was trying to communicate to her through radio waves. the 34-year-old led police on a chase after trying to plow her car into a white house barricade. we are getting a better idea of the chaotic scene that was going on for all law enforcement around there during the incident. watch. this being taken by a bystander.
you see a police cruiser slamming into the barrier while all of this is going on. all this going on as police are responding to that scene on california thursday. a prisoner a free man because he is considered no threat. he was captured with al qaeda fighters back in 2001 and sent to guantanamo bay. he suffered from schizophrenia and diabetes. after more than a decade he's been released because officials say he is too sick to be a threat. he will return to his native sudan. ladies, if you're trying to dress to impress the opposite sex, don't wear the following fashion fads. men hate women wearing leopard print, big earrings, big sunglasses and ugg boots. guilty. >> i agree with all of those. >> i do all of them. women hate men wearing pink jeans, girly scarves and fake
tans. women would be less likely to accept a date if the man was poorly dressed. >> what guy would wear girly scarves and fake tans? >> that's like a preppie look. like you got off a yacht? >> sandals with socks. that is something i would never -- never say yes to. >> if you've been paying any attention to the news, you know the federal government is shut down. the president's golf course remains open and so does his weekend house. what is being shut down among other things is the sacrament. priests have been formed if they dare to minister to catholic members they could face arrest. that means saysing the liturgy, baptizing children. if they volunteer to perform these services for our catholic men and women in the armed services, they could be arrested
and charged with a crime says the obama administration. >> here is what a spokesman for the arch diocese had to say about it. gs and contract priests who minister to catholics on military bases are not permitted to work, not even to volunteer and they risk being arrested. this is why moments ago house of representatives met momentarily to consider this bill deeming work by military chaplains to be okay because it would fall under the first amendment. >> what country is this? >> that we have to have this discussion on it. they metaphor a second bill on the day to consider doing back pay for the workers who have been furloughed. they are piece mealing sticking this together. >> shouldn't the obama administration have to explain, shouldn't jay carney have to explain whose idea it was to arrest military chaplains for saying the sacrament?
>> they felt like their hands were tied because they couldn't get civilian volunteers to come in and do that. is this whole ploy by the obama administration, what critics are saying anyway, to make this shutdown hurt americans? it's going to turn on them and make their poll numbers go down. >> we'll find out 11:00 a.m. house republicans are going to hold a press conference and they'll blame democrats who are going to hold their press conference at 11:30 and will blame republicans. >> here what is we know for sure. there is a legal opinion issued by the obama administration, one of its executive branch employees, that you will be arrested if you say the liturgy if you're a catholic priest. that happened. >> further more, if you go into world war ii memorials which are closed to the public, they are erecting wire fences around
these open air memorials, you will be arrested if you go on it. veterans who served on d-day can't go visit the world war ii memorial. >> maybe it's time for civil disobedience here. this is our government. >> park rangers are saying some of the private memorials like mount vernon, they've been asked to lay down the law. >> the french even may have commented on this. they said where is thomas jefferson? can someone wake him up because i don't know what is going on in america right now. the french are saying that about us this morning. we'll check in with washington. here is a story moving the dial over the internet. a biker beaten down for bumping into a member of a motorcycle gang that had taken over the west side highway the other day. over 1 behind men on motorcycles crowding the busy artery through manhattan. a man in a range rover driving with his wife and small child apparently bumped into one of
these bikers. they bashed into the side of his car. two members of this motorcycle gang were new york city police officers who did nothing. they did not intervene or stop the beating. the question this morning is why. >> when you've got cameras all over the city and for a minor traffic violation you get pulled over in an instant here, the nypd do not fall asleep at the switch. when you have a situation like this where you're driving through the streets on the west side highway, people are saying it wasn't the west side highway. what was it? the hudson parkway. down into the city, cutting through the middle of manhattan, by the way. this morning we are learning that the bikers were outraged because he may have driven over the guy and may have killed him, but drove off 0. he didn't know, that's the accusation. he didn't know he drove over someone and ended up killing him. >> what would you do if you're this guy? you have your lovely young wife and small child in the back seat and all of a sudden you have
what appear to be thugs how did he not take out more than just one of them in the first placthe exact same thing. sped off down, gone to a toll booth and say, hey, do you see what's behind me? call 911. i can't imagine not wanting to protect your wife and kid that way. >> the other thing is, alan edwards who is one of these bikers was arrested by nypd and now the manhattan district attorney's office is saying they are not going to be prosecuting at least in the here and now. they are not saying he is in the clear forever. >> if there is an argument for concealed carrying permits. it would be nice to defend yourself. >> not in new york city. who will get hit hardest by obama care? it's young people whose premiums are set to skyrocket over 200%. why would they want to sign up? >> caught on camera, a postal worker taking an easy way out, driving right across the front lawn of somebody's house to deliver the mail what happened

actually want to be part of the program? let's bring in our guests. welcome to you both. >> katherine, this system doesn't work unless young people who really don't have many health care costs are forced to pay for the older and sick among us. >> right. at campus reform we are talking to young people talking about waste, fraud and abuse on campuses. unemployment rate for young people is so high. obama is admitting he is counting on them to pay for it and celebrity campaigns to distract. young people are saying it's going to take more than tweeting lady gaga to get us to fall for this. >> as you mentioned, the obama administration is using taxpayer dollars to promote obama care and make it seem like these young people need it. why don't they need it? >> the problem is it's not affordable for young people. as you mentioned for a healthy
30-year-old on average, it's going to go up 200%. for people under 26, you might be able to stay on your parents' plan but it's going to cost your parents' plan. people don't have parents who can afford to add it. this bill is helping folks making $25,000 in retail. that's who you the hurts the most. delay this mandate. we can't expect to put one of the nation's biggest laws in recent memory and put it on the backs of young people. we have the highest unemployment since the great depression. >> you always read these polls, young people say we don't want government in our business. here is government getting right into your business, right in the center of it. are you noticing this? do you think it will affect voting patterns for people under 30? >> we are hearing it is going to. this is dependent upon young people. they need almost 4 billion young people to enroll to make this work. regardless of what anyone is doing, young people have the
power to stop this. if they don't sign up, the law is not going to work. a lot of young people are feeling empowered by this. >> it may not be viable. ron, what's the deal? would it be better to pay the fine instead? >> remember the fine is not just $95. it's $95 or 2% of your income, whichever is higher. a lot of times it's higher than $ 5, talking $200 to $600 for folks in this range. that is a lot of money. that's why we have to delay the mandate. that's why what is happening in washington is so important. republicans need to fight for these voteable young people who will go bankrupt because of this law. they can't afford to pay the fine. they can't afford insurance. more than 3 million young people will have to pay $1,000 more because of these obama care exchanges. if they buy into the exchanges which aren't working anyway, they are going to have to pay $1,000. if you're working at burger king or a retail shop that doesn't provide health insurance, how do you come up with $1,000? >> the fines are still lower
than the costs. those fines are going up. they will. thank you both very much. 18 minutes after the hour now. coming up on "fox and friends weekend" she may be the smartest football fan ever. >> who is the quarter for the seahaw seahawks? who is the running back? >> how does she do it? the pint-sized super fan. >> by his side every step of the way. up next, anne romney joins us. i'm phyllis and i have diabetic nerve pain. when i first felt the diabetic nerve pain, of course i had no idea what it was. i felt like my feet were going to sleep. it progressed from there to burning like i was walking on hot coals... to like 1,000 bees that were just stinging my feet.

become part of our family. >> that memory lives on. you say apricot, i say apricot. let's get going. >> this is the part where i like to involve my children and my grandchildren. when my children were younger, this is the part of the cooking i would do. we made the dough, put it in a springform pan. you open a jar of apricot jam, spread it around. you reserved a cup of the batter and made it more like a pastry dough by adding more flour to it. this is the part where the grandchildren get their fingers sticky. i love having my grandchildren get in the kitchen with me and get dirty and have fun with it. >> you have five sons and 22 grandchildren. >> 22 grandchildren. >> you say they are able to do all the taste testing for you. >> they are super. you just start laying the strips
on and you'll make a crisscross. it's pretty darn easy. you put the crisscross on, bake it and end up over here. it is a family favorite. >> powdered sugar on top and you have a delicious apricot coffee cake. we serve it christmas morning, easter morning, favorite traditions. >> i guess you could do a room temperature or cold or warm? >> a lot of times it's eaten warm at my house because when it comes out of the oven, they are trying to eat it when the jam is still piping hot and burns their tongue. they like it warm, but it's very good cold, too. >> i imagine it smells so delicious in the kitchen. the idea behind the book is getting people behind the dinner table and to spend time together. fox news channel has been
talking about the deterioration of the family and how that leads to teen pregnancy, violence and incarceration. how is the dinner table a great place to bring kids? >> it's a place where you have a safe environment. it's very important you bring children to the table and have those conversations. for my children, myself and my husband, when we sat down together there was conversation. the things we talked about, what's important in their life. what things happened to them in school. can we talk about the feelings they have? it teaches them how to communicate. they had to really argue a lot of times with us, have differences of opinion. >> learning debating skills. >> definitely. my husband deliberately will take a different position and have them defend that and have connections where they have to stand up for themselves and defend themselves. it's important to have those family moments. it's important for them to feel love and feel this is the safe place and the place where we are solid, we're together. this is important to us. you're important us to. we love you.
i think the most important thing we communicated as a husband and wife is that we loved each other. then that translated and of course we love you children. that was really something that was important. >> as i was looking through this book, the pictures you see of the family and just the love that you share with your husband is so sweet and wonderful. i remember listening to the speeches at the rnc and crying because they were so beautiful. that was a side of your husband we didn't get to see so often. how hard has it been for to you see the state of the country, even us dealing with the aftermath of this shutdown? >> it's frustrating to me because i feel if mitt had been there we wouldn't be in this pickle, that we would have resolved things and gotten things done. it's always frustrating. the other frustration for me at the end of the campaign is people didn't really get to know who he was. of course, campaigns try to vilify the other person. you know that's part of the game. it's still a frustration. at the end of the day i wish people had known he was going to
do something about this economy. he cared about everyday americans, wanted to make their jobs better. he is very upset there are so many young people underemployed or unemployed. he would like to see those kids employed and find a brighter future. >> we'll see if it gets people out to the polls in 2014. where can we find your book? >> everywhere, costco, target, amazon, barnes & noble. >> you are even lovelier in person. >> thank you. nor rain, nor sleet, nor front lawn. could this be the laidiezyiest person of all time. i want peacocks. peacocks? walking the grounds. in tuscany.

and it's a faster lens. you're able to capture much better image. >> here is a football photo. i can tell the top one here, this looks like it's darn fuzzy. >> it was taken with an iphone. there's fast action there. the other problem with that picture, there are irrelevant things in the photo. you have the cart here. in the bottom photo when we go to that one, you can see the people's faces, the football players' faces and defocus the background which is an important technique. >> simple tips, crop a photo nicely, zoom in to make sure you're getting relevant stuff so you don't get the cart in the back of it. >> right. >> bottom line is, make sure you have a camera with you when going to the special moments and don't rely on the cell phone camera. >> cameras are not that expensive. these are the moments of your life. >> if people want more tricks and tips, where do they go? >> unique photo.com. we have a muscle car event today. come on by. >> thanks. coming up on the show, business owners call it a job

they are waiting and seeing whether or not they are going to participate. you have to have more than 50 full time employees to be there. number one is if you don't have 50 full-time equivalent employees, and that's part timers as well as full timers, there is a formula. you don't have to worry about it. there is paperwork but you don't have to be required to have health insurance. that's number one. >> that is a sad solution that isn't good for the economy, that's for sure. >> it really is. i hear a lot of business owners saying i'm not going to grow my company past 50 employees, that is a sad statement. in is one way to get around obama care, not have more than 50 people. number two though, you could take what i call the mr. burns approach which is to say, i'm not going to provide health insurance at all. i have more than 50 people. i'll pay the penalty and the penalty will be $2,000 per full time person. less the first 30 people so there is a calculation you do. you just say to your employees,
go out on the exchanges and get it yourself. even that $2,000 penalty would be less than what they are paying for health care. it's not a good thing for employees either, but it's an option for some employers. a lot of people are considering that. let me give you a third option that's been popular which is a hybrid. that is this. you say to your employees, we are not going to deal with obama care, we are not going to provide insurance and deal with the paperwork or bureaucracy. we'll tell you to go out and get your insurance yourself on the exchange. however, we are going to pay the penalty and we are going to bump up your paychecks so you get at least the amount of money you were getting from us before when we were providing health insurance. then you have the choice to go on the exchange and buy your own health insurance and decide what you want to do. a hybrid approach where the employer is still paying, paying the penalty, paying a little bit for your employees to get insurance. you're just avoiding all of the
obama care regulation bureaucracy and all of that. >> it's amazing even paying a penalty and increasing salaries will still cost some less than complying with obama care. >> in many cases it will. if you're going to give your employees more money in their paychecks, you've got a tax effect. that will be taxable to them, as well. you have to be careful to that. another way is people are looking at the fine contribution plans. they are looking at setting up a formal plan for doing just that. that gets you away from any anti-discrimination practices or anything like that. those are the main four reasons that are out there for doing that. >> it's amazing what a drag on the economy all four of them are. a lot of them entail soaking taxpayers, in effect. >> yeah. in a way. the final thing i like to tell people as well, and it's a fifth reason is that you can always opt to get the minimum plan,
which is the bronze plan. we'll hear a lot about that in the future. bear in mind a lot of small businesses right now, the ones that have more than 50 employees, they are giving plans right now equivalent to silver and gold level plans. we'll be learning more about that as obama care becomes more prevalent out in the marketplace. they are giving their employees good plans as it is and paying for them. a lot don't have to do that going forward. they can say, we are just going to have the minimum plan, the bronze plan. if you want to get more coverage, you're going to have to pay for it, which unfortunately is not helping the employee. it's helping the employer a little bit. >> the point is the overwhelming majority of americans have good health coverage already before obama care. gene marks, thanks for that. up next, lady liberty is closed. thank the shutdown for that. we've got a way to still see her. courtney scott is next with details on places that are open.

53 minutes after the hour. did the government shut downforce you to cancel your vacation to one of our national parks? >> don't worry. there are plenty of alternatives that have stayed clear of the shutdown and will provide you with a fun vacation. >> joining us the only person who could answer these questions, courtney scott. good morning. >> good morning to you. >> where do we go to avoid -- all of these parks are shut down. what's left? >> travellers are very resourceful and creative, and this is not going to ruin our travel plans. in maui, one of the parks is closed and that's where people love to go downhill biking.
i recommend the road to hana. incredibly scenic and rugged road trip. you're passing through a rain forest, flowing waterfalls, scenic seascapes and end up in hana where you can lounge on the black sand beaches, and visit a tropical garden is nonprofit and publicly owned so it's opened. >> and they say pack a jacket for the end of it. and the dramamine too if you get motion sickness because there are so many curves. but this is a thing that everybody talks about with maui. >> it's one of the top things to do in maui. do not miss it. >> and a lot of people stop in san francisco before they go to hawaii. and i didn't realize this about the golden gate bridge, that it is privately owned so that's still open, but golden gate park around it, where you park to take photos of it, is closed. >> it's kind of tricky. the park is closed, so that includes alcatraz island and kbl any of the visitors centers.
but the bridge is private so it's open. you can go across it. there are vantage points to take some great pictures and take in the grandeur of the bridge. i think instead of going to the muir woods, go to the botanical gardens. 8,000 different types of plants. instead of alcatraz islands, there are 10 different islands in the san francisco bay. you can go to angel island. the marin island. lots to do off the coast. if you want to kind of get out on the water. alcatraz isn't the only one. >> here in new york city, the statue of liberty island and ellis island are closed. so what's left? >> there are a couple of options to get to lady liberty. the staten island ferry gets you pretty close. but if you want a deeper understanding, all of the ferryboats offer cruises that give you a narrated history of the new york harbor and lady liberty. so that's a great option. if you want to get an alternative to ellis island, so
many museums in new york really focus on the immigrant history. the italian american museum in little italy. chinese american museum, the ukrainian museum, and the tenement museum. definitely one of a kind experience. >> and the acadia national park is closed in maine, but you have some alternatives. >> lighthouse tours, fall foliage at its peak in a couple of towns. southwest harbor, bar harbor, kayaking through the islands. so much to do there. >> for more information, go to travelocity.com. great to see you. >> thank you. more "fox & friends" in three minutes. >> stay tuned. customer's not happy, i'm not happy. sales go down, i'm not happy. merch comes back, i'm not happy. use ups. they make returns easy.
