under control off the freeway. the plumber used a hose from his truck to put out the flames and then fire fighters got there to help finish the job. >> good for him. it is the weekend. have a great friday and enjoy your weekend with your family. we'll see you here on monday morning. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. bye. ♪ ♪ good morning. it is friday, octoberñi 18, 2013. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. new details about the obamacare debacle. the website wasn't even tested until a week before it launched. and that is just the beginning. >> meanwhile, a brand-new benghazi bombshell. but don't ask the white house about it. >> i know that we're creating an exchange here. i'm mindful of that. >> are you going to make any of those documents associated with that press release available as you did with the susan rice report? >> i think we're done here. >> you might. we don't.
how much did they know before the attack? we're going to tell you what we know. >> should congress give back the pay -- their pay from the]iñ shutdown? >> they'll continue to take my salary. >> we know what debbie wasserman schultz will do. she says i'm keeping my money. meet the republican who says i have to give it back. in fact, he just did. that's his check. i'm going to give that story and talk about it because "fox & friends" starts now. >> happy birthday, steve, and all your friend here wish you the best. >> thank you very much. >> happy birthday tomorrow, steve. >> thank you very much. elisabeth has already given me my birthday president for tomorrow. >> which is? >> i haven't opened it up yet. where's yours? >> i'm going to give you
cash again. >> i just got a paycheck from a congressman in new jersey. >> it will be a three-hour celebration of your birthday. have you met that mayor? >> no. i was long gone. interestingly enough, the hospital i was born at in algona, iowa, was the same hospital that stuart varney's wife was born in. deb was born in the same hospital. >> how did that come up? >> i don't know. >> i guess when you're playing tennis in your all-white outfits in new jersey. where was your wife born? i don't know. where was your wife born? >> i saw you with your posse, the guys hanging around with the beer and the whiskey. i saw ted on tv and it looks like ted is trying out for "duck dynasty." >> both of whom i love. "duck dynasty" and the sox.
>> he was shaving in the fourth grade. >> meanwhile, elisabeth, let's talk about the affordable care act website. it stinks. >> it does. what started out as a failure is now just a complete disaster. the "wall street journal" is reporting that the obamacare website is providing insurers with wrong info, making it impossible for people to actually sign up or then go back and actually check a password. they've lost a ton of information actually. >> what they're doing too now, because it's a trickle compared to the seven million they plan on handling, they're going back in and trying to fix all this manually, which is staggering because they got to get specialists to handle this manually. the navigators are supposed to be helping people. they are nonexistent. here are some of the problems. duplicate enrollments, usually not good. you'll pay back. spouses reported as children. although some of you ladies feel like you're raising children, it's not going to work out in the health
business. and missing data and fields. like me, i always seem to miss a block or two. like what sex i am or what sex i prefer to be. if i don't check that pwo*bgs it is like -- check that box, it is like falling downstairs. >> the administration keeps referring to it as tiny glitches but this is systemic. insurers have been under a lot of pressure not to say anything, through the health department. so they have anonymous sources quoted in these articles. they're saying it is straining their ability to even handling the trickling of those trying to get on. >> one of the problems is apparently they're using ten-year-old technology. for you to navigate the system, you've got to remove -- clean the cache and then do the popup blockers. this is so eight years ago. according to mitt co, they -- according to "politico," they said the administration had a bunker mentality when they were building this particular site. they were essentially afraid of transparency.
they were afraid the people who did the site would be called in front of oversight asking why was it so bad. instead what they did was essentially they hired trusted campaign experts to do the work. now we know the work's terrible because they weren't experts at it. >> and they only tried it a week before the rollout, october 1, which is unacceptable. you see debbie wasserman schultz and robert gibbs say it is unacceptable, it indeed is acceptable. they were in on the creation of this entire project. on top of it, this is their biggest fear. they need healthy to sign up. they didn't explain that to you. they need healthy people to sign up. if you're sick and have preexisting conditions, you're going to stick it out. if you're healthy, you don't want to sign up to begin with, you're just worried about being fined. you're going to throw up your hands and say i'm going to playñi handball or go out with the guys. >> they procrastinate and don't try it out until a
week or two beforehand? this deserves a six-week trial with all the information americans are supposedly needing to put into the system. they had medicare and medicaid officials running this information through during that minute those that wd normally do it. i think, my goodness, you're putting in your social, your financial information, where you're from, your password, your dog's name and they don't know where it is. they might not have the right to put it in because they are not the ones who should be doing it. >> my dog threw up on the stairs yesterday. i wonder if he's covered. >> frank lutz talked to his focus group about obamacare. who do they blame? >> we believe obamacare is just going to add to the deficit? raise your hand. a majority of you. would any of you fire anyone for what went wrong? who would you fire? >> at least for the rollout, i'd fire sebelius. >> who else would fire
somebody? >> i'd fire the president. >> okay. you can't do that. >> if this were another country, step up and resign. >> got brand-new paintings behind him. this has been a debacle technologically. but also keep in mind they had such high hopes they were going to have this gigantic rollout and so many people would sign up. according to a health industry consultant, based on the number of enrollments the feds sent back to insurance companies, the first week they think they probably wound up signing up 10,000 people the first week, 10,000 people the second week. the web traffic fell off 88% after the first week. they are probably at 5% of their goal. that's not good. >> now the other topic, during the shutdown, a lot of lawmakers are getting pressure and hearing a lot from their constituents saying what did you do during that time? i was furloughed, told to stay home.
why were you getting paid? the government was shut down. how can you tell me you were doing your job well. if you talk to representative frank lobiono, he will not take his money. he put a check on the website saying here's the $5,000, i'm putting it towards the deficit. when debbie wasserman schultz was asked the same thing, listen to her. >> because i support everybody getting a salary, i continue to support reopening the government, making sure that everybody who is doing a job in the federal government can earn their salary. and so that's my position there. >> are you going to continue to get -- take your salary? >> yes, i'm going to continue to take my salary. >> yeah, great. meanwhile, brian, on the other side of the aisle, from my current home state of new jersey, frank lobiondo, said, quote,
please find my check dated october 17 of this year in the amount of $5,021, the check is repayment of my salary incurred during the 16-day period of the partial government shutdown and to be used toward the reduction of the public debt. way to go, frank. >> that's patriotic. >> you saw the picture of the check? when -- we're going to have heather do the update. but actually in a moment, i'm going to go back in the next block and interact with everybody on our facebook and find out what you think about it. i checked it before the show started. everyone loves this story. either like it or interact with us. >> go on to facebook and either like the idea of that check being sent back to the u.s. treasury or not. brian will be fielding those and let everyone know what you said. >> could you get us some coffee? >> snacks? >> you like it black. >> it's my birthday.
i'd like whipped cream in it. >> and you just like it free. >> that's right. >> thank you very much. as brian leads to the green room, go to our facebook page, "fox & friends" and like the picture of the congressman's check, and we'll let you know how that goes. >> i notice how you brought producers in the news room this morning cups of coffee. >> i do it every day. >> how nice. we've got some news to bring you and some serious news coming out of ohio overnight. a sad story to tell you about taking place there. a police car colliding with another car, leaving six people dead, including one child. one police officer has been seriously hurt. and here's what we know about what happened. the cop had his lights and his siren on at the time, and we're told that he was responding to a robbery. all of this unfolding right near the state capitol in columbus, ohio. more details are coming in. we will keep you posted as we learn more. brand-new developments
in that nationwide manhunt for twoñi convicted killers who had been freed by mistake. it looks like it was an inside job. these murderers walked out of a prison in florida using fake documents that authorized their release. the phony paper work had the forged signature of this judge. chief judge belvin perry. he oversaw the casey anthony murder trial. >> somebody had to help him. they alone could not do this. i think someone outside helped them. >> 0 joseph jenkins has been on the run for 21 days. charles walker has emn gone since october 8. be on the lookout for them. president obama ready to fill the seat vacated by janet napolitano. he will appoint jay johnson.
he previously served at the department of defense and did the military reviews and approvals of every military operation. a group of world war ii veterans from san diego heading to the nation's capital to visit the memorial today. it is finally open to the public after veterans moved the barricades and they stormed in. we told you a lot about that. that was when the government shut down. >> i feel sad that these self-serving politicians have disregard for most americans. they are only interested in their own political career or whatever. >> that is norman maximum well. it will be -- nor man maxwell. it will be his first trip to the memorial. he is 88 years old. have a great trip. >> thanks, heather. a man got a pink slip who
helped someone being attacked in a parking lot. >> brian in the green room interacting with you on our facebook page. go log on. you can read your comments right after the break. ♪ ♪ [ female announcer ] the best thing about this bar ♪ it's not a candy bar. 130 calories 7 grams of protein the fiber one caramel nut protein bar.

prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain and improve daily physical function so moving is easier. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history.

got paid. other people are getting personal. i won't read that out loud but i'm going to be responding the whole time. back to you. >> under obamacare businesses faced a tough choice. cover all workers or pay a hefty fine. our next guests are taking a cold, hard look at those numbers and say they might opt to pay the penalty. the fine for 200 employees, $400,000. that's compared to the coverage costs that range from over $900,000 to almost $2 million. joining me are debby and larry co-owners. certainly, you have a lot of to weigh with your business. what's making you look at those numbers side by side, and where are you in your decision? >> well, we have to decide what, whether we're going to pay or play, in the vernacular, of the obamacare law. depending on the cost of
the insurance plans that we would be able to come up with, we may have to decide to pay the penalty. or if we get a reasonable plan, we may be able to choose coverage for those employees. >> both seem to come with a hefty cost. many companies, many mid-sized business owners right now are actually being forced to, looking at the mandate coming, take full-time employees and bump them down to part-time so that they would have to obviously look at the bottom line and avoid having to be concerned with mandates. are you going to be in that situation? >> it might in some ways turn out to be an advantage to us because sometimes companies would rather outsource employees to temporary staffing companies such as us, to be able to help them so they don't have to work with that. >> i know that you grew
your business in 2005 from the ground up. certainly this environment right now, according to many, is not good for business growth. does obamacare kill the growth of businesses? >> well, i think, you know, as a business owner, as every business owner in america is facing right now, the challenges are you just don't know what your costs are going to be. and just the uncertainty. and i think that's what -- some of the companies are postponing making hiring decisions or either they are outsourcing their hiring because of uncertainty, because they just don't know what the costs are going to be. >> larry, certainly this can't be good news for you. i know you're looking at protecting employees. but what does it mean for them? what about the people working for you? what are they facing in the next couple of years? >> starting in 2015, as you know, we got a reprieve for
one year in relation to the obamacare. our employees could lose their coverage. our current employees, our staff employees could lose the coverage that we have that we've tried to get for them over the past few years. they may be lumped into another plan with all the temporary employees we have. so it's going to be some changes. the bad thing is that we don't know at this point what's going to happen. it's very hard to quote a plan. we haven't got any carriers to quote a plan until 2015. >> larry, you know, and debby, sad news obviously for a lot of business owners. we thank you for being honest with us about yourñr situation and wish you the best. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. >> up next, could a song be the key to beating alzheimer's. a stunning new study next. >> i'll just have one glass.

steve? >> talk about double vision. the next glass of wine or beer you may have tonight could be 50% stronger than you think. take a look. the guidelines for the average serving sizes is 5 ounces of wine with 12% alcohol. 12 ounces of beer with 5% alcohol. and 1.5 ounces of 80 proof spirits with 40% alcohol. but a brand-new study find drinks served at bars and restaurants are much more potent than that. dr. marc siegel, our mixologist from the medical a team joins us to explain. >> the national alcohol beverage association found we're drinking a lot more than we think they are. when you go to a restaurant, you think they're heaping up that glass. the problem is you think it is one glass. it is the equivalent of two. >> let's show folks what we're talking about. you wanted me to show you what i think is a glass of wine. >> drinking guidelines
would be no more than two glasses per day. wine is starting to get a lot more alcohol in it. >> i would say that's about a glass of wine. >> that's about what you think it would be. let's look at what it really is. it is supposed to be four to five ounces. the problem is wine has a lot more alcohol than it used to. it has up to 15% alcohol. they're recommending four ounces, four to five ounces. look at the difference. >> come on. you go into a restaurant and this is the glass they serve you. >> right, which is more like two glasses. again, that's already the amount you're supposed to have in a day before you should risk driving or anything like that. very different between men and women. with women, body weight is an issue. genetics is an issue. >> meanwhile, when it comes to beer, this is easy because this is a beer glass; right? i got a little too many sudden. nothing is falling over the top yet, mr. kilmeade, whose father owned a bar.
>> how much does brian drink, by the way? >> a lot. >> he's not supposed to have more than 12 ounces at that football game. >> this is the size glass that i would pour. >> if you're watching the new york giants right now, you have to have a little bit more. here you go. >> look at that. i was about on -- i was exactly where you're at. >> no, no. you're a little bit more. >> just a tiny little bit. >> beer, by the way, is good for your bones. it's got silicone in it. >> red wine is supposed to be good for your heart. >> very true. you don't want to overdo it. you get more calories than you think. >> a simple sip of hard liquor, i would say that is about right. >> you think? i would say a lot less than that. >> if anybody shows up at the bar with a pyrex cup, you'll know you were watching dr. marc siegel.
>> this is very serious. we're joking but if you drink more than you're supposed to, you're much more likely to get in a car accident. over 100,000 fatal car accidents a year related to alcohol. this is a very serious matter. >> next week you're going to be reporting on college kids and alcohol. >> who are all drinking a lot more than they think they are. >> this is very helpful. most importantly, i think folks who buy wine, they're getting way too much alcohol and calories? >> absolutely. there is a lot more alcohol in wine than we think. it is up to 15%. 5% in beer. jim beam could be 90 proof. >> dr. marc siegel, thank you very much. there are a couple of coffee drinkers. >> exactly. at least at 6:28 in the morning eastern time. let's tell you what's going on on facebook. >> barbara is writing they shouldn't have gotten a pay check in the first place. >> by the way, i walked in

up a probe and what they seem to be zeroing in on now is the day before the september 11 attacks in benghazi, libya, last year, apparently jay carney's office sent out a four-sentence press release that said that the president had met with key national security principals to discuss, quote, the steps taken to protect u.s. personnel in facilities abroad on the verge of these september 11 anniversary. what's interesting is the guy who ran africom was asked, and he said i don't know who they're talking about because they didn't talk to me. they apparently did talk to joint chiefs chair mark dempsey, and he said that it was rather routine which i don't know what that means. >> two things. they concluded they could not get help there in time. but it's also true they should have had assets in position to get help there in time because if they were clear there was indeed a threat -- which by the paper work it seems as
though it is -- how can you say i can defend libya? which led to conflict in yesterday's briefing. >> certainly our ambassador chris stevens family and the others killed were asking for answers. james rosen was asking for answers from jay carney. let's see how that went. >> i wonder if you could tell us more about what those meetings entailed, who the participants were, how closely vetted that -- or thoroughly vetted that press release was and whether the white house might be willing to make available either to congressional investigators and/or to the public the e-mails, the memos and other sort of paper work that was associated with the development of that press release? >> it is clear because four americans died on that day that there was not adequate security. and that was revealed in the accountability review board. and i would simply say when it comes to -- and i know we're creating an exchange here for fox and i'm
mindful of that. >> what we're engaged in here is not for fox of it's for the record. would you be willing to make any of those documents associated with that press release available as you did with the susan rice talking points? >> james, i think we're done here. thanks. >> are we done? not exactly. many more questions. the reason he was asking whether or not the white house would provide documentation is the fact that while the committee has oversight and can go ahead and get documents and related e-mail and stuff like that from the military, they can't get it from the white house. the white house would have to cough it up. at this point it doesn't sound like they're going to cough up anything else. >> there would have to be ao direct release. but instead, no. going to shut down any information. >> i'm going to go to the green room. >> the picture of the check on-line on our facebook at "fox & friends." it has close to 2,300 likes on it right now. if you think it is a good thing that the congressman from new jersey gave his salary that he earned
during the government shutdown back to the government as opposed to debbie wasserman schultz, go to our facebook and like that picture. >> brian is going to check that out. heather is going to grab headlines. >> here's another question about giving back the money. should furloughed workers have to give back unemployment money they got after getting back pay? some furloughed workers in the state of oregon getting paid twice. workers who received unemployment compensation during the government shutdown found out the government is not making them pay back that money. on top of that, they're getting back pay. wow. fired for doing the right thing. a worker at a wal-mart in michigan is out of a job this morning. he helped a woman who was being assaulted in the parking lot. what? here's what happened. he was in his car during a break when he heard the woman screaming. listen to this. >> i never expected all of this. and the least i expected was to not have a job. i don't even know what to
put on an application about all this. how do i say this ended? i'm always going to act the right way and do the right thing, even after all of this. >> fired for doing the right thing indeed. wal-mart says that they understand his actions, but that he violated company policy. what do you think about that? a woman finds out she had been seeing her long-lost daughter every single day without even knowing it. freda pickering was 19 years old when she gave up her daughter for adoption. they were reunited after decades apart and found out freda actually drove her daughter carol's school bus every day for seven years. listen. >> wow. no idea, of course. >> i was just thinking last night i'm blessed that carol called me. we're talking like mother and daughter, which i never dreamt that would happen.

now you know. brian, over to you. >> get this, i don't know if you heard yet. new anger and threats to americans overseas following the capture of al qaeda suspect aby anas al libi. according to reports jihaddists are being urged to retaliate by kidnapping u.s. citizens. what do we need to know and should we have brought him to new york city for a trial? let's ask someone who used to be part of an extremist group. he's the author of "radical: my journey out of islamic extremism." thanks for joining us. from what you know and used to be an extremist yourself, should al libi be tried in new york? >> i think he should. i think it is important to demonstrate we adhere to our values. when we try him of extremism we're not charged with duplicity. >> how important is it to put him in an environment in which he speaks and talks intelligence? >> crucial.

you realized your way of thinking was warped, twisted. >> i spent years in prison, i had the as sass -- assassins of presidents. i came out -- i was imprisoned at 24, still a young man. i came out four years later as an adult. >> what is the best way to fight islamic extremism? we've got to be doing more. combine that school of thought with the ideas, the attacks. >> military operations will only be a short-term solution. in the long term we have to start rebranding democratic values and challenging extremist ideology. >> i hope people listen to you because you've been there and you've come back and you're sharing it in

we've got over 4,000 likes on our facebook. "fox & friends" at facebook. and 1700 comments. here are some of the things you are saying -- we asked you about -- about the new jersey congressman who gave back his paycheck and the debt that is rising. >> where did i go wrong? if i laid down on the job for 16 days, i wouldn't have -- i would have received a pink slip. not a check. >> that's right. and vonna says, why give it back? they're just going to go waste it. why not donate it to the wounded warrior project. >> i think he said he's going to pay it against the debt. >> into the general fund. that's what the congressman will do. jeff says, every member of congress should do the same thing as congressman lobiano. that's his check wisely he cut off the routing number and his account at the bottom. but he made $5,124 during the
shutdown. debbie wasserman schultz was asked, are you going to do the same thing? she said no, i'm going to keep it. >> it's been quite tense over the last 16 days. the president refused to negotiate during that period of time. the house put many ideas to fund the government, all those injected by the senate. finally we thought we had a last minute deal and that blew up and in the end, many people would say the president got what he wanted, which was the deficit got raised, the continuing resolution got passed. so how did he act yesterday in terms of moving on, putting it aside and putting the best foot forward 'cause we have to negotiate again within three months. >> someone asked, why the sour face? why the bad attitude? but this is what we're hearing over and over and over again from president obama, nancy pelosi, and jay carney. >> you don't like a particular policy or a particular
president, then argue for your position. go out there and win an election. >> was their temper tantrum worth $24 billion? >> did the scolding, if you want to call it that, was far less severe than some republicans have received from members of their own party. >> you know what? the president said just go out and win an election. well, mr. president, with all due respect, remember, the american people reelected the house of representatives to be under republican control. how many members won their elections? take a look at this. 233 republicans. just 200 democrats. so remember next time there is some spiking of the football on capitol hill, the american people voted for a divided government. that means you got to compromise. >> every time the president seems to be in a tough heated situation, no one looks back to clinton, reagan, and bush. they go, it's got to be -- many people go, it's got to be race
related. it's staggering and so disspiritting when you see robert redford, a great film maker who says the house is giving him a hard time because we think it has something to do with the color of his skin. that issue was brought up again with somebody who should know better, chris matthews. listen. >> they had this weird way they referred to. we the american people. why does a group of people that always loses elections or tends to do lately, why do they call themselves the american people, because do they still count blacks as three fifths of a vote? worried about, like we're more american than the rest, so we should get a higher waiting than we are? i think it's dangerous. it goes with the birther stuff and all the rest of it. >> you know, why do you have to play that? >> i don't think there was any we involved in what he just said. i think he was standing alone on an island with that up with. >> no kidding. we've seen it a million times. >> you don't like their philosophy, they won an election. you don't like the fact that they came up from the masses
organically from the grassroots, then you shouldn't have passed obamacare because that was the one piece of legislation that binded together a group of americans who said, that's enough. we're spending ourselves into oblivion. let's form not a part of the republican party, but let's form a party. they see more eye to eye with the republican party. where does race come into what they're saying? i don't see anything brought up about race. >> it's a desperate attempt and it undermines racism when it actually exists. i think to just throw it out there not only is a largely a false accusation, but also really does a disservice to the wrong that is racism when it does occur. >> because -- and we were talk being this, you mentioned robert redford, he was playing the race card yesterday -- in the past, that has been a very effective way to shut people down. just to shut them up. they don't like the president's policies because he's of african-american descent. no. brian was talking about the tea
party. at the time party got elected in a grand way in 2010 and many more in 2012 as well simply because their mental was simple. we are spending way too much money. what's interesting with this debt ceiling loophole, apparently they set a time limit for the debt ceiling extension, but they didn't cap it at any particular fixed amount. so that number can go up and up and up. frank luntz was talking to one of his focus groups yesterday and here they are discussing who to blame in washington, d.c. >> the country spends a small fortune, in fact, a large fortune supporting other countries around the world and we can't take care of our business at home. and i think it's outrageous. >> who is responsible for that? >> i think the congress is responsible. i think the people in the white house are responsible. >> you basically blame everybody? >> i blame -- >> i didn't hear either side during the shutdown say, let's talk about entitlement reforms.
we're talking entitlement reforms something we need to talk about. but neither side said, let's really change this. >> they're afraid to do anything about it because they're afraid they're going to lose votes. that's stupid. >> i believe anybody who came up with the idea, let's not pay for things we already bought, i mean -- >> nobody had that idea. i don't understand what you're trying to do. >> the debt ceiling is about things we already bought. >> try not paying for your credit card and see what happens >> that debt ceiling is another credit card for the federal government. >> there is such frustration in that room. there is such frustration across the country. he made the point and we heard it a million times during the debt ceiling debate and that was well, the congress has got to go in there and pay the bills that they agreed on. i think we all agree on this, congress is running up way too big of bills to start with and that's part of the frustration. they got to stop spending. >> i don't really think it's related. dr. ben carson coming up shortly. meanwhile, heather nauert is following what else is breaking. >> we have an update for you on
a story we told you about. new video coming in to fox news overnight. breaking news in ohio. a police car colliding with a car leaving six people dead. one police officer has been seriously hurt, but he is in good condition at a local hospital. here is what we know so far. the officer apparently had his lights and his siren on as he responded to a robbery at a mcdonald's near the state capitol in columbus, ohio. according to our local affiliate, a male driver and a female passenger, including a toddler and a teen-ager, were killed in that accident. police believe no one was wearing a seatbelt. more details are coming in, so we will keep you posted on this developing story. in the meantime, brand-new developments to tell but in the nationwide manhunt for two convicted killers who were freed by mistake. it appears that this was an inside job. the murderers walked out of a prison in florida using fake documents authorizing their release. that phony paperwork had the
forged signature of chief judge perry. remember this guy? he was the judge who presided over the casey anthony murder trial. here is his take on what happened. >> somebody had to help them. they alone could not do this. i think someone outside helped them. >> well, joseph jenkins had been on the run for 21 days. he has been on the run rather. charles walker has been gone since october 8th. so be on the lookout for these men. a new terror threat puts a state department on high alert. the u.s. embassy in uganda getting that warning. the embassy says u.s. citizens should avoid public areas that attract large crowds. al-shabab militants recently killed more than 60 people in that west gate mall attack last month. we know sleeping can drain your brain, but scientists have
discovered why. there is a new study out that suggests while we sleep, there is a system in our brains that scrubs away neuro waste. the discovery not only helps scientists better understand sleep, but it may also help them treat diseases such as alzheimer's. that is linked to an accumulation of toxins in the brain. so anything to help out with that. those are your headlines at this hour. >> it's like a mental pipe cleaner, cleaning out. >> yeah. another great excuse to sleep. >> there you go. >> sleep long. >> another reason to feel bad for not sleeping. coming up, crisis in washington averted for now. so what's next? dr. ben carson says we're about to lose jobs. the white house needs to take notice. he joins us next. >> good morning, doctor. >> good morning. and should congress give back the pay from the shutdown? some democrats say no. but meet the republican who says yes. he just did it. your facebook posts are coming in like crazy.
but chantix helped me do it. i told my doctor i think i'm... i'm ready. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. i knew that i could smoke for the first 7 days. i knew that i wasn't putting nicotine back into my body to try to quit. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, sp chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. if i could describe being a nonsmoker, i would say "awesome." [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
we need a doctor. with the senate shutdown over and the debt default avert ford now, washington can now focus their attention on obamacare, right? joining us right now is fox news contributor, dr. ben carson. by the way, he's also the author of a new book that is called "america the beautiful" and also a professor emerits at johns hopkins university and he's retired and busier now than he was before. >> it's been amazing as i travel around the country and speak to enthusiastic crowds and people
saying, you mean there is somebody else that thinks the way i do? 'cause they've been beaten into submission. there are a lot of people who think this way, believe me. >> absolutely. there are a lot of people looking in, they've been watching what happened in washington, d.c., you know, now the president, he's got a short-term deal on the cr and the debt limit and stuff like that. you say that the republicans actually, going forward, have a good message to present to the american people. >> well, the message of fiscal responsibility. personal responsibility and fiscal responsibility on behalf of everybody. but also recognizing that the republicans went right up to the brink. they did fight. most of the time they wilt long before this. i think what they need to let people know is it was a matter of do we allow the country to go into default because clearly, the other side was willing to let it go into default, protect their pet -- >> john boehner made it very clear a week or so before, we would not go into default.
>> correct. so when we start ascribing blame, i find it quite interesting that a lot of people want to say it's all the republicans, but the fact of the matter is, it was the president and his group who were quite willing to allow the country to go off the cliff in order to protect their pet programs. >> sure. it's interesting, just a couple of minutes ago we were talking a little bit about racism. it does seem like the opposing side to you plays the race card an awful lot. yesterday we played robert redford, the day before we had a sound bite from charlie rangel comparing conservatives to confederates. here is chris matthews once again playing the race card yesterday. >> they had this weird way they referred to, we the american people. why does a group of people that always loses elections, or tends to do lately, why do they call themselves the american people because do they still count blacks as three fifths of a vote? like we're more american than the rest, so we should get a
higher waiting? i think it's dangerous and it goes with the bier stuff and -- birther stuff and all the rest of it. >> i'm very hopeful that at some point people will grow up and stop the third grade tactics of calling people names. we the people, we the american people are not each other's enemies. the enemies are those people behind the curtain jerking everybody's chains and trying to divide us up by age, by race, by income, by virtually anything they can because these are more controllable units. the people i believe are waking up. >> you know, i think it's all part of members of the mainstream media who are trying to completely marginalize members of the tea party and create a split within the republican party because that's perhaps the way the white house thinks going forward that's the only way they're going to be able to win anything is if they can spahn off a number of moderate republicans from those darn extremist tea party members! >> if you read my book "america
the beautiful," there is an analogy comparing the american tea party with the old tea party. the british empire was trying to do exactly the same thing to the american tea party during the american revolution. it's just incredible the way that you march along and see the things done. the tea party is no big organized party. it's americans saying excuse me, don't we have something to do with how our country is run? the people who are running it say no, you don't. get out of here! >> it drives a lot of people crazy, like you. dr. ben carson, fox news contributor, thank you very much for dropping by. >> always fun. >> all right. what do you think about his comments? e-mail us, please, or if you got the facebook up, go ahead and like it. up next, no more free phones. where people now have to pay for their obama phone. how much? it's going to surprise you. it's a story we told you yesterday. o. j. simpson planning a new

offices in the '80s and this movie is basically about stallone plays a security expert who goes into prisons to break out of them, to expose their flaws. his latest assignment, he's double crossed and he finds him selves trapped in a prison called the tomb, home of the world's worst criminal masterminds and he has to team up with fellow inmates arnold schwarzenegger to escape. we caught up with him at the world premiere earlier this week and asked him why these movies are still so pop lea. how have they changed and what's it like working for the first time -- that's the first movie they worked side by side together. >> that's crazy. >> yeah. >> radically it changed with technology and unfortunately, i think a lot of the guys that are very good physical specimens don't get a chance to show their stuff. just taking more physical chances, not that i recommend it because we're both pretty broken up. >> some movies will always be the same. people like to see good movies.
they like to see action. people love action movies and it has to have a good story. that's the bottom line. >> isolater. you know. gets on my nerves a little bit. >> been taking a beating for decades about who has the last amount of body fat, whatever. >> it was the gun show. >> get down to the bmi. they're doing their own stunts, right? >> they still do. there is one scene, stallone said it would probably -- it was probably his last fight scene. for all of that, there has yet -- there is no new generation of actors that has really come to replace them. luckily for them, they have reliable franchises they're tapping into. a new "rambo" coming out, and rocky is hitting broadway this february. >> wait, rocky will be singing and dancing? >> it's going to be a musical. >> love it. >> that could be the first

as he responded to a robbery at a mcdonald's near the state capitol in columbus. according to our local affiliate, a male driver and a female passenger -- actually five female passengers, including a toddler and a teen-ager, were killed in that crash. police believe that no one was wearing a seatbelt. we'll keep following this for you. in the meantime, new develops this morning in the nationwide manhunt for two convicted killers who were freed from prison by mistake. it looks like it was an inside job. the murderers walked out of prison in florida using fake documents authorizing their release. the phony paperwork had the forged signature of chief judge beloving perry. you may recognize him. he was the judge in the casey anthony murder trial. >> somebody had to help them. they alone could not do this. >> i think someone outside helped them.

be blaming both sides. >> you just rewrote 20 million hallmark cards. >> thank you. on benghazi. i think the intrepid reporting of james rosen uncovers what? a press release dated september 20, 122012. what does it say -- 2012. what does it say on the consulate in benghazi and other facilities around the country, the press release on september 10, 2012, says there is a heightened terror alert. be on the lookout. all our people have now been informed. so there was clearly notice. there was an appreciation on september 10, 2012, that our facilities overseas were in peril. jump cut what was done in response to that terror alert that everybody acknowledges they received -- >> the answer is? >> precious little. as i've been reporting from the very beginning, it is clear that the united states military did not have assets in place to protect our facilities in the
mediterranean or elsewhere in the world and so shame on us in the sense that we were notified. the word went out, but we did precious little about it. >> right. in that release, apparently the commander of the africa command was not included in a key national security principle meeting the day before. correct? how important is that to know? >> well, hamm is or was in charge of the africa command, as you suggest. but he had very little assets. what did africa command at that time have that general hamm could have deployed? putting aside the issue of whether or not he was notified. i can't imagine that he was cut out of the loop entirely. but he had no forces. he had that one unarmed drone which he did dispatch. he had no military forces. there are some people in eritrea thousands of miles away, there are some ships at sea. the fact of the matter is, that i hope has been remedied.
but on that day in that place, we had nothing with which to respond to force. >> and we know what happened. what trouble sos many people, and that's why fox is still on this -- is the fact that ambassador stevens made a plea to his boss, hey, i got to have more security and i'm not getting it. there is ambassador stevens, along with the other three brave americans who died that night. we do have the exchange. you were talking about the intrepid reporting of james rosen. he wants the white house to cough up the documents that went into the press release that said that the president did have the meeting with the security people even though the guy not in charge of that theater got a little contentious yesterday. watch this. >> i wonder if you could tell us more about what those meetings entailed, who the participatants were, how closely vetted that or thoroughly vetted that press release was, and whether the white house might be willing to make available either to congressional investigators and/or to the public the e-mails, memos and other sort of
paperwork that is associated with the development of that press release. >> it is clear, because four americans died on that day, that there was not adequate security. and that was revealed in the accountability review board. i would simply say when it comes to -- i know that we're creating an exchange here for fox and i'm mindful of that -- >> we're engaged in here is not for fox. it's for the record. are you willing to make any of those documents associated with that press release available, as you did with the susan rice talking points? >> james, i think we're done here. thanks. >> so he blew him off. >> what's your take on that? >> on what we just saw? i think jay carney was he can extremely overreacting and very, very sensitive and embarrassed in a way. >> smug. >> to respond. the smugness, i guess you could attribute that, brian, to his personality. i've never -- >> congratulations. >> i never -- >> embarrassed. >> i'd like to be your press secretary. >> as in my new book?

okay. we're taking a look at some of your comments regarding the new jersey republican congressman who is sending back his paycheck during the government shutdown. so many of you had so many things to say about it. i just hit a crazy button and, for instance, susan says, what i don't understand is why the people that didn't go to work because of the president's shutdown got back pay for those weeks once it was over, makes you wonder whether or not the shutdown was just another administration ruse and then they shouldn't have gotten a paycheck in the first place. what do you think? go to our facebook page, "fox & friends." like it, we'll talk about it. over to you, elisabeth. >> thanks, steve. should the government -- the government shutdown is over. but has the blame game just begun? let's look at how the main stream media has covered this and whether or not it's been fair. we are asking town hall columnist crystal wright, her take on this. good morning, crystal. >> good morning.
>> when we look at the stats here, we laugh about it. but it's actually -- we have 41 evening news stories that blame the gop. zero were blaming the democrats. the rest of the 17 happened to blame both. what's your take on that? >> the mainstream media just stoked the fires all along. remember, president obama, even though he's the head of the country and the executive, remember, he was blameless. elisabeth, to add more i guess insult to injury here, my hometown paper did over 200 stories of the victims of the government shutdown and only three stories of the negative impact obamacare is having on americans. so it's pretty disgusting. you still pick up the papers even this morning blaming house republicans and the last time i looked, democrats are making up half of congress over there in the senate. they're just as much to blame. so i'm not saying that house
republicans didn't have trouble with their game plan. but come on, come on. >> well put. also 80-0 for the "new york times" there in terms of shutdown and obamacare. also when we talk about news, abc world news, 21 minutes on the shutdown. zero on obamacare. zero. nbc nightly news, 30 minutes on shutdown. zero on obamacare. cbs evening news, 27 minutes on shutdown. you could probably see in terms of talking about obamacare, victims specifically, there have been zero stories on the victims of obamacare. thankfully we're covering it here. but where is it everywhere else? >> right. you're absolutely right. the only paper that has been doing a good job is the "wall street journal." and for two years now, particularly this year, we have in the "wall street journal," story after story, elisabeth, of big companies and small companies doing what? laying off people because they can't afford the health care insurance for what?
obamacare. we hear over and over people like me and my premiums are going up. they're not going down like the president said. i can't keep the health plan i like because of what? obamacare. let's talk about i think it's over $500 billion in taxes, elisabeth, because of what? obamacare. so people would rather have jobs than this lousy so-called affordable care act that's really going to i think crumble under its own weight. but we don't want to talk about that, right? we just want to act oh, it's just a computer glitch. you'll probably die trying to sign up for obamacare. >> that's not healthy. crystal wright, love your work out there and you certainly hit the nail on the head with this one. thanks for being with us. >> thanks. coming up, more on the disaster that is obamacare. we just learned that the web site wasn't even tested until days before the launch. chris wallace is going to react
to that. up next. plus, the movie is getting a ton of oscar buzz and we're talking about 12 years -- >> i know what kind it is. i've been there myself. >> ground for a slave. >> expert player on the violin. >> i was born a free man. nature at its most delicious.

jeb johnson as head of the department of homeland security. he served at the department of defense and did the legal review and approval of every military operation approved by this president and the secretary of defense. will he get the job? we'll keep you posted. >> the story that captivated critics, now in all theaters for all to see. >> the stars of this dramatic narrative sat down to share the movie making experience of playing a free black man who was abducted into slavery. joining us with the inside scoop of 12 years a slave is kevin mccarthy. a fox news contributor and the founder of nerdtears.com. good morning. >> good morning. how are you guys? >> good. >> what do you think of this movie? i hear it's quite taxing, quite dramatic, quite well done. >> it's a powerful film. one of the best movies i've seen this year, but also a movie i will never watch again. >> why? >> one of the most brutal, most intense, most excruciating films i've seen because of the
brutality. steve mcqueen directed it. you're dealing with a free man in 1841 abducted and sold into slavery for 12 years. he wrote an autobiography in 1853 which came out. that's what this movie is based upon. steve mcqueen is known for long uninterrupted takes. we had scenes of 1 1/2 minutes where nothing is being cut and you're dealing with the realism and the brutality and intensity. the actor is incredible. i think he'll win an oscar. the actors are incredible, a breakout star for this film. she'll be nominated for a best supporting actress. known for having an internal performance. there are a lot of scenes where he's not saying much. i sat down with him to talk about that. what does an actor think about in a scene where he's not saying much? >> i think you're just engaged in the moment, you know. i think steve and i from the very beginning of this journey, we talked about it as a kind of
sort of dark fairy tale, like sort of a dark version of alice in wonderland. you fall down the rabbit hole and you're just into a completely different universe and we're witnessing that universe through the eyes of this man and we are this guy. he is our guide. he's our conduit into this other place. when you're reading on his face is reflections of how you're also thinking about what he's seeing. >> pretty incredible. i gave it 4 1/2 how have five. the only problem i had was brad pitt. you can't have someone that famous show up three quarters of the way and not think about brad pitt. >> you did say that movie does not get done unless brad pitt throws his weight into it. correct? >> he produced it. he's one of the big producers in the film, that's right. >> all right. what about the wikileaks movie? >> this is a film that had potential. i loved the actor, the problem with this movie is it's style over substance.
the directing and editing are terrible. but the performances are great. i gave it 2 1/2 out of five. but i sat down with the actor who played julian assange in the film who apparently got an e-mail from julian assange the day before filming started. i sat down with him in september and this is what he had to say about it. >> he wanted me to step away from the project. that was what the communication was at the beginning of the film. i received a massive e-mail telling me with very clear, very highly articulated reasons why i shouldn't be part of this project. >> did you respond? >> yes, i did. yeah. i did in kind. i took a long time and i wrote as passionately about why i thought he might be wrong. i hope secretly he'll watch it and think it's not as bad as i thought it would be. >> too bad. how many stars do you give it? >> i gave it 2 1/2 out of five. julian assange if you're watching this, do not watch the movie. it's not good. >> he says it's not true. >> yeah. he said that. before the movie came out, he
saw copy of the script and said it was a massive propaganda attack. he's definitely not for the film whatsoever. >> not happy about it. but getting personal indeed. >> thank you, mr. nerd tears. have a great weekend. we'll go to the movies. >> thank you. >> follow me on twitter at kevinmccarthytv. >> all right. 28 minutes after the top of the hour. democrats seemed happy the debt ceiling has been lifted. but what about the american people? are they happy? >> who is responsible for that? >> i think the congress is responsible. i think the people in the white house are responsible. >> basically you blame everyone? >> i blame -- >> frank luntz with what voters are telling him in his focus group. >> a mom and daughter reunited after decades apart. even more incredible, they saw each other every single day and never knew it. her mom was the bus driver. >> are you kidding me? ♪ i have low testosterone. there, i said it.

♪ >> waiting on the world to change as you watch our show. earlier today we asked you for pictures of your pets watching "fox & friends." here they are. michael from florida tweeted this photo of his dog, jet, watching "fox & friends" right there. >> he looks like he was put on an ottoman and afraid to jump. >> "fox & friends" contributor
kevin mccarthy just tweeted this picture of his dog, oscar. >> of course, he would name his dog oscar. wouldn't he? >> that's his goal. >> after oscar myer. that's a lot of bologna. the american people in other topics, want someone held accountable for the obamacare mess and i don't know if they all agree on who to blame, but frank luntz got a group together, focused in on obamacare and where the responsibility belongs. take a listen. >> who believes that obamacare is just going to add to the deficit? raise your hands. okay. so majority of you. would any of you fire anyone for what went wrong with obama? who would you fire? >> right now i would probably fire at least sebelius. >> sebelius. >> sebelius. >> i would fire the president. >> you can't do that.
>> if this were another country, she'd step up and resign. >> let's welcome back chris wallace who is not a part of the focus group for frank luntz. he was not there. it's one of your big regrets. chris, here is the thing -- >> but i got through it, guys. >> it's amazing. you represent resiliency. in the big picture that, is going to be front and center now. now it's going to be obamacare. it rolled out october 1. how is it going? do you know anybody that thinks it's been a good rollout? >> well, maybe kathleen sebelius. i will tell you an interesting story. i was talking to a republican senator. remember late last week republican senators went to the white house to meet with the president? i'm told by one of them that the president actually teased them and said, boy, aren't you sorry that you shut down the government and all the focus is on you and if you hadn't, the focus would be on obamacare? because he knows that it's been a mess.
he's not happy with it. >> are you kidding? >> ultimately i think you have to hold kathleen sebelius, head of health and human services, responsible for this. she was saying this summer it's going to be great. it's going to be ready for prime time on october 1. and look, they've had three years to get a handle on this. if you've already -- we see it regulating a sixth of the economy, this cannot disspell those doubts. they can't fill you with confidence. >> you know what, chris? if the white house fired her, that would be admitting that they did something wrong. i mean, you look at benghazi, four people died there because most probably because there wasn't enough security there. nobody has even been held accountable in that. >> well, that's true. that's true. the only difference i guess i would say is at least -- i'm not in any way minimizing benghazi. that was an emergency. it was a sudden situation. >> yeah, but they heard from the ambassador ahead of time, we're surrounded.
we need help. >> i know. but all i'm saying -- i understand. all i'm saying is that it's different than obamacare where they had three years. >> you're right. >> this is something that was totally within their control and they still screwed it up. >> they screwed it up and they didn't have it tested until the week before. something that they should have been at least giving a test run, don't you think, for i don't know, at least six weeks or so? >> it's been very interesting to listen to some of the experts on web sites and these kinds of things, rollouts, in the commercial sector and they're just shaking their heads. they're saying, this was so utterly predictable. if you were a professional in this business and why they didn't have better people staffing this and hadn't tested it. earlier this week they were talk being a specific person in delaware who had signed up for obamacare and what her problem was and wouldn't say her name. it turned out it was pretty easy to find out her name 'cause guess how many people had actually signed up going through the whole system and signed up in delaware?
one. >> one indeed. >> blue cross blue shield has been a mess in nebraska. medical mutual of ohio, they got three people to sign up there. one by one, these companies and states are rolling in saying it's a disaster. naturally they're trying to fix it manually. if they get 7 million people signing up, you can't possibly keep pace manually. >> no. you get no argument from me on this. this has been a mess. again, as i say, utterly foreseeable and i think we've all been talking on our show and on your show about how the government refuses, the administration refuses to say how many people have actually enrolled. they say well, we can't say it. we'll tell you in november. i think clearly it's because the numbers are so embarrassingly small, they don't want to put it out there. >> you know what? it's a sad state of affairs when your wife's web site for her cookbooks has been more effective and more efficient than obamacare's web site.
>> look, everybody knows that mrs. sunday soups and chicken are good for you. it's a 99% approval rating. she'll have a book out in 2015. >> who is mr. sunday's guest this weekend? >> we'll talk to marco rubio. he's one of the 18 republicans who voted against reopening the government and we'll ask him about that. also about this debt deal and what's going to happen there. we're going to talk -- speaking of debt, now we'll have two months to figure out the budget. dick durbin, there you see them. and roy blunt and maybe most interesting of all, the head of heritage action, 31-year-old young man named michael needham and in the middle of this week when john boehner wanted his house republicans to do one thing and needham put out a note and said no, don't do that and we'll legislate -- people ended up siding with needham over the speaker. you'll meet him on sunday.
>> we'll be watching. check your local listings for show time. mr. sunday, chris wallace, have a great weekend. >> see you guys. listen, can you get me into that next frank luntz -- >> we'll do our best. >> i really want to be part of it. >> i want to raise my hand. >> i know. thank you, sir. let's look over there. she's got -- i see the headlines. >> i've got some headlines. first i want to tell you, we've been talking about the obamacare exchange web sites. i was talking to an insurance executive whose company is participating in the exchange program. he said they were told the program wouldn't be ready, the web wouldn't be ready until thanksgiving. >> great. maybe they should have pushed it off a year like the republicans said. >> i learned that last evening. got some headlines finally here. nightmare for parents in arkansas. a man with a knife jackknife add school bus with 11 elementary school kids and their driver on board he drove the bus several miles and then he only surrendered when he saw police
