banning twerking is a great idea for any school dance. it is in no way appropriate for anything to deal with kid. thanks to everyone who responded. have a great friday. see you back here monday. >> "fox & friends" starts now. bye. good morning. it is friday, october 25, 2013. web developers were grilled over the obamacare disaster. kathleen sebelius hit the road with this. >> the majority of people calling for me to resign i would say are people who i don't work for. >> but doesn't she work for you? the american people? >> and me and everybody else. >> while the secretary gets to keep her job, this woman gets canned. you're going to hear from arlene right there, the obamacare call center worker who simply talked to sean hannity on the radio, and she got fired. >> he's maryland's attorney
general. his job, cracking down on illegal activity. so what's he doing at an underage booze fest on a college campus? wait until you hear his excuse. he wants to be governor. "fox & friends" wants you to watch starting now. >> you're watching "fox & friends," the number-one morning cable news show in america. >> okay, colonel, we agree. >> good morning everybody. >> happy friday. >> yeah. start us out. what a day on capitol hill. >> huge committee hearing there. obamacare website contractor is getting grilled on the hill. let's take a look and see how it went. >> today the energy and commerce committee continues our ongoing oversight of the health care law. >> unaffordable premiums, massive glitches, dead ends, error messages, system breakdowns. >> are they simply incompetent or were they just lying to the american
people? >> were you not aware of the problems consumers would face before october 1? >> we were not -- >> obviously there is a problem and it is not like an ostrich we can bury our head in the sand. we have to deal with it. >> there are thousands of websites that carry far more traffic. i think that is a lame excuse. amazon and ebay don't crash the week before christmas and proflowers doesn't crash on valentine's day. >> what's the standard protocol? what is the recommended industry standard to end a test before a major rollout like this? >> months would be nice. >> i'm damned angry that i and 700,000 texans i represent have been misled, misled and misled. >> this is not about blame. it's about accountability, transparency and fairness for the american public. >> four and a half hours it went. you know, it was nice that both sides were pretty much yew snide in their --
united in their disskuft -- disgust that this didn't work. they had in front of them four contractors, four of the big companies that put the website together. each one of them said our part worked great. it wasn't until it was all bolted together and the federal government only had two weeks of testing, that is why it stunk up the place. >> top contractor c.g.i., they revealed they spent $290 million in taxpayer funds. they claimed the end-to-end testing and the date of launch was not their responsibility but solely fell on the department of h.h.s. they said not us. >> the guys that were hired said, look, we had -- at the last minute we're told to change the way people logged in. people had to give information first. we changed but it wasn't enough. testing wouldn't have made a difference. we have the private
contractors saying we did what we were supposed to do and they did not look defensive in the way they delivered it. however, kathleen sebelius who is the health and human services secretary, and next week will be testifying, this week she had a gala and a series of events and appearances. yesterday she came out somewhat defiant when she heard suddenly that many people are calling for her to be let go. >> no one has been fired. my goal is to actually get the website up and running. the majority of people calling for me to resign i would say are people who i don't work for and who do not want this program to work in the first place. i have had frequent conversations with the president, and i've committed to him that my role is to get the program up and running, and we will do just that. >> i don't think it benefits anybody if she is let go now. if you want to help her out, get somebody seems more competent in setting up this program, that's
fine. but to start over again would be disastrous for everybody. >> here's the thing. she said nobody's been fired. au contra i r. a woman named charlene who hannity called on the phone and wanted to ask some questions. she said essentially nobody likes it. the sound ran on his show, ricocheted over the internet. we played a snip of it. that woman simply for telling the truth got fired. sean hannity is going to be, as it turns out, helping her out. he feels terrible about the fact she was simply exercising her first amendment right and got the okay. she got fired. he's actually going to pay her salary for the next year. and sean hannity is going to be joining us live right here on the "fox & friends" friday edition coming up. >> republicans should what you -- should watch. i think they should let this play out. i don't think they should be cheering this even though they predicted this
because a lot of people had their rates tripled. when you talk about health care it is extremely personal and you don't want to think someone is cheering your unfortunate experience. >> certainly the effects, the web wasn't working, that's a problem. even those who aren't in favor of obamacare or were in favor of obamacare getting to see what happens now. so the bipartisan effect on all, meaning those rates going up as you mentioned, brian, insurance companies sending letters dropping those that were ordinarily covered are affecting democrats and republicans. there is a new fox news poll that asks how are things going in the country among democrats; okay? look at this here. we have right now -- >> a disturbing trend if you're a democrat. >> democrats alone, 41% satisfied. only 41%. >> look where it was in october of 2012. 77%. look where it was in july, 54% of democrats. 41% are looking at president obama's signature
achievement and saying my goodness, i was standing behind this fighting for it, maybe got reelected because of it. and now look at what's going to happen. >> suddenly a number of independents have said maybe the republicans were right all along. keep in mind, this is just the website. this isn't the actual health care. wait until you see your premiums. while we've heard sticker shock for the premiums, what's interesting is if you go on-line and you buy a site -- rather, you buy a plan, bronze, gold, platinum, whatever they're selling these days, it doesn't tell you what the deductible is. it can be $5,000, a gigantic number. >> some of those deductibles are falsely assumed by the website. >> that's right. it is a model. >> in the past year, that 36% we indicated is a huge headline today. we'll keep you posted on that number too.
heather nauert, good morning. >> i think we should still put brian's brother, the plumber, in charge of all of this. that is something we can agree on; right? your brother, the plumber, put him in charge of this and the website? >> possibly. >> you said he can fix anything. >> i don't think he can fix this. >> all right. good morning everyone. hope you're off to a great day already. a fun night at the fair turns into a nightmare. a ride suddenly starts moving again as people were trying to get off it. this happened at a fair in raleigh, north carolina. the ride is called the vortex. it flips passengers upside down as it heads up into the sky. but when it actually restarted people were thrown to the ground. one witness said people were, quote, falling like raindrops. >> this has shaken all of us a little bit. we definitely have these folks in our thoughts and prayers. >> five people have been
hurt. some of them fell 30 feet to the ground. wao*epl -- we'll bring you updates as we get them. >> we are looking for the americans. that is what pirates reportedly said as they attacked a ship off the coast of africa. now two americans are being held hostage. at this hour rebels in nigeria say they are in contact with the pirates and can help rescue the americans. the captain and an engineer were taken during an attack on that ship. it's believed they were brought to shore. >> obviously our concern at this point is for the safe return of the two u.s. citizens. chief of mission security at our mission in nigeria are investigating the kidnapping report. we do believe this was an act of piracy. >> the u.s. navy is monitoring that situation. we'll keep watching this one as well. thanks to a little help from a government official's phone book, the n.s.a. was able to eavesdrop on 35 world leaders' phone calls. according to a brand-new leak from edward snowden, the n.s.a. encouraged
officials at the pentagon and the white house to share their rollodexes. those 35 names haven't been released but we know german chancellor angela merkel accused the united states of spying on her phone calls. did you see this one happen at last night's world series game? james taylor flubbed the national anthem at fenway park. roll the tape. >> ♪ oh beautiful ♪ oh say ♪ can you see ♪ by the dawn's ♪ early light >> what do they call that? a medley. the 65-year-old started singing america the beautiful before quickly transitioning back to the "star-spangled banner." was it a mistake or part of his act? e-mail or tweet us. what do you guys think about that? >> he can sing anything and
it seems to blend in. >> if you do ever forget the words, transition to something else. >> of all songs, why not that one? >> 11 minutes after the top of the hour. this is quite a story right here. he wants to be the governor of the great state of maryland. he currently is the democrat who is the attorney general there. as it turns out, there's the guy right there, douglas gansler, in june his son had just graduated from high school, so he and the other parents had paid for a beach house and a party. he gave some rules. no drinking, no members of the opposite sex in bedrooms and what not. guess what? apparently, according to these images, it kind of looks like all that stuff was happening. and unfortunately for the attorney general, that's him right there. showed up. he said i'm just dropping by to check up with my son. and yet, there's so much going on in that picture that it's probably wrong. now people are saying are you qualified to be governor let alone attorney general, because you didn't jerk your kid out of there.
>> right. he said my son, he says, did not drink. and he is my responsibility. not anybody else. and because of the location of the party, he says it doesn't fall under his jurisdiction. those in favor of him proceeding maybe into a gubernatorial position, they may be thinking chasing a younger demo or something. i'm not sure. his platform did include underage drinking, which the hypocrisy there -- anti. this is not part of his platform, but it is a little scary to see that many kids underage drinking when the parents know about it. they had a dance floor it seems in some of the pictures. premeditated. >> here's doug gansler defending himself. >> i could done an investigation to see whether there was drinking going on and taken action. i probably should have done
that. in hindsight i should probably assumed there was drinking and talked with chaperons about what was appropriate. i wasn't there to make a decision about whether there was drinking or not. >> you know, in our town, this is a tradition where they get a beach house and the kids go down after high school. we didn't let any of our kids do that because we knew that's what would happen. but there he is, his son is right there, you see all the drinking. he's the attorney general. he's a father. i think my inclination would be, you know what? i'm not going to call the cops. but you, young man, are coming home with me right now. >> doesn't the buck stop at the top law enforcement? >> you would think so. >> answer us on facebook. we'll be monitoring it. meanwhile, straight ahead. >> more on our top story. two americans kidnapped by pirates. is there any cans we can get them back on u.s. soil? a man who negotiated here next. >> a call center worker fired after talking to sean
hannity about the problems with obamacare. kathleen sebelius still has her job. does that sound right to you? we'll debate it and talk too sean shortly. ♪ ♪ mine was earned orbiting the moon in 1971. afghanistan in 2009. on the u.s.s. saratoga in 1982.

a fox news alert. no sight of the two americans kidnapped by pirates off the coast of nigeria. the captain and chief engineer abducted, believed to have been taken to the shores of nigeria. the shipping company president joins us right now. he is the president of a company and actually paid ransom for your ship and the people on it that was hijacked by pirates; right? >> that's right. >> right now who's talking to who? >> my guess is because the u.s. state department and the f.b.i. are involved, it is the f.b.i., the u.s. state department is probably in conversation with the pirates and also
the nigerian government to release the crew. >> what under what pressure do you believe after talking to your guys that were kidnapped, what are they going through right now? >> i'm sure they're really scared and terrorized. they also know that this happens pretty frequently. i mean, if i were on your show every time people were kidnapped in nigeria, i would be on more than every month. they get released pretty safe within a week. >> why were they weeding through the crowd for americans? >> they probably thought they were higher-value target. by the same token american hostages will bring a lot more pressure to bear. if it's true that they were looking for the americans, it's probably because they thought they would get more money for them. >> what would you recommend the company do? how do you think we should handle this right now? what is the window of opportunity to save their lives? >> i'm sure their lives are really not at risk because
once again, this is their business. if they start to kill hostages it would change their business model. these pirates are businessmen, not fanatics. unlike somali where my ship was taken, once the pirates got to shore they had sanctuary, when nigerians bring them to shore there is effective local law enforcement and military that are going to start to exert pressure on land. they're going to start to get squeezed. they're going to get squeezed by the u.s. and by the local military to resolve the situation. >> we just watched captain phillips. should these guys be waiting for seals to come to their rescue? >> it may not even come to that. even the threat of that type of action for these pirates to say this is a hot potato, let's drop it. >> how do we stop the cycle until we stop paying? as long as we write the checks these guys are going to be kidnapped. >> it's terrible. it's a question i asked
myself when my own crew were hijacked and we paid. after 60 days of intense negotiation -- you guys, by the way, were the first to break it -- >> thank you. >> the head of the company has to say is it my responsibility to set a moral tone going forward or to save the lives of my crew. i had to save the lives of my crew. >> james thank you so much, president of algomar corporation who paid the ransom to get his guys who were hijacked. ten minutes before the bottom of the hour. next, disturbing new information on the war against christians. 80 people sentenced to lashing for drinking communion wine. could this happen? terrorists take out our power grid? >> there's reports of blockouts happening all over the east coast, new york city. so i don't know, this thing might be bigger than i think it is. >> our next guest says there is no doubt.

attack. >> it's because, again, what's happened is to a large degree that individuals now have the ability to kind of like interrupt the system because it's a very fragile system. because everything is connected to the computer network -- >> it's hackable. >> right. it is the computer network that controls everything we do and one individual with the right skills and right situation can produce a tremendous amount of damage. you don't have to worry so much about nations because we're all intertied economically so it is not in their best interest to screw us up. but one person who has the right skills and right situation can do a tremendous amount of damage and do something like this. >> we're coming up on the anniversary in the northeast of sandy. we thought we were prepared, but we weren't at our house. a lot of people weren't because when you got in your car to go get gas for your generator, you go to the gas station, they don't have electricity, they don't pump gas. you go to the a.t.m. to get

electrical power or gas. you've got to have food you can prepare, especially if you live in a city where you can't use a barbecue in your apartment. emergency food, emergency water. you want to have emergency radio that you crank with your hands, especially those of us who live in the city because you can't find batteries when these things happen. a blackout of this size, you need to have the staple items that will allow you to support yourself for an extended period of time and not just three days. >> thank you very much. we're going to be watching "american blackout." blackout is going to be on nat geo this sunday. >> thank you. we feel more prepared now. coming up two new moms sent home from the hospital with the wrong baby. and wait until you hear how they figured it out three weeks later. >> while kathleen sebelius gets to keep her job, the woman screen right got

snow, ice, water, dry pavement. >> in 2011, driving accidents claimed the lives of over 3,000 teenagers. hopefully with max's instructions that will drop. >> say you're about to run off the road going to the right. what do you do? >> turn to the right. >> turn in the direction you're going even though your initial reaction is to go the opposite. >> the scenario you're about to do, if i get caught on black ice, flood waters. >> your rear end starts going around on you, keep going a little bit more, make a left-hand turn. make a nice tight turn. >> it happens fast. >> it does happen fast. >> back to the right. you can go straight. >> what do i need to do? hurry into it?
>> a little bit quicker. >> let's try that again. take two. if you feel your tires start to skid, don't panic, continue to steer in the direction of the skid but look in the direction you wish to go and tkoepb -- don't oversteer. >> there you go. >> yay! >> that's all you've got to do. >> tip for a rear wheel skid, stay calm if you can. turn in the direction of the skid but look in the direction you want to go. never look in the direction of the skid. continue to look straight ahead. >> some kids would just close their eyes. >> or slam on the brake. but you were saying turn to the tail. my dad would take me out on black ice and let me practice before i was alone. >> that is a great lesson. >> your car didn't have training wheels. >> it didn't. anna, thank you for that. coming up, what time does the average american leave work on fridays? here's a hint.

welcome back. u.s. marines up in arms over proposed changes to their caps, or covers. the new look, seen here screened left, compared with the current look, is supposed to be more gender neutral, but some say would make them look too girlie. that's not the only controversy. the cost? over $8 million is estimated. -uppery sergeant jesse joins us now. she's a retired gunnery sergeant and also with concerned veterans for america and joins us with
her thoughts. what was your initial reaction to the cap change? >> first of all, i find it appalling that the dod wants to spend $8 million on a uniform change when right now we're facing serious budget cuts, troop personnel cuts. we couldn't even pay the death benefits during the shutdown. it seems we have misplaced priorities to make a gender neutral cover or a hat for all marines, when 95% of the entire marine corps is male. that's just ridiculous. >> sure. it seems the commander in chief may have misinterpreted spending cap. what's your take specifically on having a gender neutral cap and how it affects females? >> first of all, females are less than 6% in the marine corps. we should stand out, not try to be blended in with the males because we are the fewer and the prouder. when you're less than 6%, to only uniform us to the point are we blend in, people won't know there is women in the marine corps.
females quit saying i need look like the male. i served 20 years. acting like a man will never get me ahead in the game. >> that's interesting perspective there. what is the word from the inside? >> essentially every marine is furious that they would either fem ninize the males or masculinize the women because when you look at the covers we have now, the women have a bucket cover that's very smooth on the edges and the men have what's called a barracks cover. it's very appropriate for each gender. it looks attractive and fits. but what's going to happen is they're either going to femininize the men and adjust them to dan dale cover, which is based off our medal recipient from ward war 1, or have the women take on the barracks coverment why will we lose our identity and gender neutral marine corps? we are the world's most aggressive fighting force in the world and to demasculinize our
marines seems a ludicrous requirement. >> well said. i believe it's general james amos, is he making a final decision on this after marines vote? >> yes. apparently the marines will be able to go on-line and vote on this. i would expect that the males are going to win on this argument. they're going to want to keep their barks cover. but then the female will lose their bucket cover and the dna dale cover, and i just find that the females are always compromising to where they're trying to fit in with the men to be masculinized is not attractive. women like me who were out there supporting those wing units, to spend $8 million to make the women more like men is a ludicrous, waste of money by our department of defense. >> some strong statements from you. gunnery sergeant jesse duff, we thank you for your service and for being with us this morning. >> thank you so much for having
me. >> take care. coming up, she's defended obamacare on the air many times. but democrat kirsten powers is now singing a different tune. the reason? her plan is now going up. she's going to be here live top of the hour nches of oats. ching! nches of oats. mmmm! mmmm! mmmm! wow! it's the oats. honey. yeah. honey bunches of oats. this is a great cereal.

obamacare web site that has really stunk. the vendors all said, our part worked. but when we bolted it all together and we only had two weeks worth of practice, two weeks worth of testing, it simply did not work. now, they were bipartisan in saying it didn't work. but there was at least one democrat, guy from my state of new jersey, frank polon, who saw this not as trying to get to the bottom of things. look, we spent millions and millions, hundreds of millions of dollars on this. we want to know why it stinks. he thinks it's all political driven by the republicans. >> i started out in my opening statement saying there was no legitimacy to this hearing and the last line of questioning certainly confirms that. once again, here we have mirin colleagues trying to scare everybody. >> will the gentleman yield. >> no, i will not to the monkey court. >> this is not a monkey court.
>> do whatever you want. >> stay classy, frank. >> it's not yielding. it seems he may not be listening to what the american people are getting. >> it's nonpartisan. >> it's everybody. >> there is two things. we don't know if the program will work, number one. people are getting estimates that are blowing them away. number two, it's off to a terrible start. for him not to acknowledge that is insulting. >> you know what else? i read this morning that in new jersey, the state that he represents in the u.s. congress, 800,000 people, their insurance is going to disappear because of obamacare. this web site is such a stink bomb, one of the contractors who showed up, they had four contractors. one of them actually tried to sign on himself. how did that work out? watch this. >> did you personally try and get onto the system? >> yes, i did. >> for what state?
>> i attempted -- i think i put in texas. >> is that where you're from? >> i'm not, but i was testing the system. >> did it work? >> i logged on it create an account, was able to do so. i just never received a confirmation e-mail. >> so it didn't work? >> didn't work. >> oh, man. >> i mean, that's right from the inside and it still didn't work. that's what we're hearing time and time again. even people who supported obamacare from the beginning and want the government to get in there and do something to help those who may not have insurance or coverage, even they are starting to feel the pain themselves and understand what's going on. kirsten powers said even her plan is going up. listen to this. >> i'm in the individual market and i got the letter, the same letter everyone is talking about and i went -- i live in dc, so it's a state exchange. i went on and i guess -- i could roughly get the same insurance, it's not completely clear, it will go up from $160 a month and
$2,500 deductible. if i want to keep a $2,500 deductible, it will go up to $300 a month. so it is going up and now i think the administration would say, well, you're healthy and you're young and so you're part of the people that are going to i guess maybe see your premiums go up. but i don't think that's quite the way they sold it. >> she's paying significantly more and she says it's disappointing. i think people gave them the benefit of the doubt in things they were saying. they really need to come out and explain the nation for what's going on and why people are being forced to switch their plan. >> sure. watching that and i'm thinking, that sounds like so many real stories. of those that were supporting obamacare from the beginning, supported the president, voted for them perhaps, and now are just facing the reality of what it means. >> i saw in our news packet there is a guy in wisconsin tried to figure out, if barak obama himself lived in wisconsin, what would his health care do? they plugged in all the facts
about the president as are publicly known. turns out the president, his own health policy would go up 48%. it would go from $21,000 a year to $32,000 a year. that's jaw dropping for people who have supported the president and thought it was all going to be better. in fact, there's a brand-new fox news poll that came out last night at 6:00 o'clock and take a look at this. we asked just democrats how are things going in the country? how many of you are satisfied? 41% of american democrats are satisfied. go to the far right. it was 77% last year. that's a drop of 36%. how many are dissatisfied? almost 60%. a year ago, it was 22. so you can see all those people who had been satisfied, now it looks like they migrated to what happened? >> kirsten powers, i think is the story. as much as people will focus on the web site, you have to think they're going to straighten it out. but the question is, is the program going to work? when you have a democrat who worked for hillary clinton who
was supportive of obamacare and combative for anyone with an intelligent counteroffer that took it on, when she says personally she's got her -- not convinced the money will go to the 30 million uninsured, that's significant. >> one of the things the president promised, two things, you can keep your health care. now we know that is not true. in fact, more people have lost their health care recently than have actually signed up for obamacare. he said you can keep your health care and he said, i'm going to bend the cost curve down so that health insurance in the country costs less. but, in fact, what we've seen is it's going the wrong way. >> she admitted and she does always put forward an intelligent argument on the other side to counter and certainly i think she represents so many of our friends out there who are experiencing this in saying that yes, they wanted to, as many do, help those who don't have insurance. at the same time, it was pitched, we're gog help people as your rates go down. as your situation gets better. then it's clearly not what's
happening. so we thank her for her honesty. >> the big rollout on october 1, there was one hearing yesterday. there are going to be two more next week and kathleen sebelius herself will show up. apparently no parties next week. so she's going to be on capitol hill. >> social calendar shut down. but heather is here. good morning. you have headlines? >> yes. other stuff going on. an update for you on a story we first told but earlier this morning. there was a fair in north carolina, but a night that was supposed to be fun turned into a real nightmare. a ride suddenly starts moving again as people were trying to get off of it. this happened at the state fair in raleigh, north carolina, about 9:00 o'clock last night. the ride is called the vortex. it flips passengers upside down as it heads to the sky. when it restarted, people were thrown to the ground. one witness said people were, quote, falling like rain drops. >> this is shaking all of us a
little bit. we definitely have these folks in our thoughts and prayers. >> five people were hurt and we're told two have serious injuries. some of them fell 30 feet to the ground. we are looking for the american. that is what the pirates reportedly said when they attacked the ship off the coast of africa. now the two americans are being held hostage. at this hour, rebels in nigeria's troubled delta says they're in contact with the pirates and can help rescue those americans. the captain and an engineer were taken during an attack. it's believed they were brought to shore. >> we are concerned at this point it's for the safe return of the two u.s. citizens. chief of mission security at our mission in nigeria are investigating the kidnapping report. we believe this is an act of piracy. >> the navy is also monitoring. thanks to a little help from a government official's phone books the nsa was able to eavesdrop on phone calls from 35
world leaders. according to a brand-new leak from edward snowden, the nsa encouraged officials at the pentagon and the white house to their share rolodexs to get access to foreign leaders' information. the 35 names haven't been released yet. but this week, earlier this week, german chancellor angela merkel accused the united states of spying on her phone calls. listen to this one. a norwegian town that's left in darkness september through march will see the light. the town is in the mountains and in the winter when the sun sinks low, the rays never reach the people there. but that is about to change. there is a local artist who started a campaign to fund three giant mirrors. they're going to bounce light into the town square. they've been tested and they'll be unveiled at the end of the month. how about that? you need some light, especially in the wintertime. >> innovative. >> thanks. >> thanks for giving us something to flect on. >> cute, cute. >> talk to you later. >> i like it. >> i'll be here all week.

credibility with republicans and more importantly, with democrat democrats? editor at large for national review and fox news contributor joins us from d.c jonah, welcome to our monkey court today. >> great to be here. >> stop it. hey, let's talk a little bit about how the president -- you know, he's lost credibility with republicans a while back. >> that ship sailed a while ago, yeah. >> that's completely out of town. now, his core audience, the democrats, he's losing credibility with them with the stink bomb rollout. >> that's right. part of his core constituency and the one he needs the most for obamacare are young people. he visited college campuses more often than the red bull delivery truck throughout the election and desperately needs them to sign up 'cause they're young and healthy and will stick to the tables and all that. but these kids have grown up in an iphone world and they are all of a sudden being asked to enroll in essentially a post
office operation and they're going to be utterly disgusted when they try to figure out this web site 'cause they're used to one click lifestyle. >> sure. >> that's a huge problem on the math for them. if they get discouraged, the whole thing could fall apart. >> absolutely. some genius in the administration should have said, we need close to 3 million young people. let's put the app on a smart phone. most kids don't sit down to a hard line computer to figure out how to do this for a half an hour or something like that. the other thing is, this is just the web site. wait until we actually get the health care. >> that's right. kirsten said in the clip you ran from her, it was pretty indicative of the major problem. hundreds of thousands of people are being knocked off of having their insurance plans canceled and that is a far more effective direct mail campaign than anything the republicans could come up with. >> sure. >> the democratic base were the only people who really believe
barak obama when he said, you're not going to lose your plan. you can keep your health insurance. your rates are going to go down and they're all being reminded to a person, that that was all not true. >> right. you know, yesterday it was interesting, while the house energy and commerce committee was meeting there on capitol hill, across town over at the white house, the president was trying desperately to change the subject. let's not talk about health carrollout. let's talk about immigration. but right now at this point in his presidency, can he advance anything to fruition? >> it's very hard to see. i think he's going to fight very hard on the immigration front, not because he cares so much about immigration policy, but because he wants to put a squeeze on the republicans for 2014. at the end of the day, when he gave his infomercial where he was saying -- >> act before midnight. >> i'm sorry? >> act before midnight. >> that's right. operators are standing by. it's very rare -- it happens, but it's very rare in politics
where you have a president ask the american people, to a person, to fact check his credibility. when he gave that phone number and told them all to call, that 800 number and it didn't work, you had the situation where millions of americans were asked to personally be the president's fact checkers and it didn't work. that kind of credibility, that burn rate on your credibility is a real problem for the president. >> absolutely. i'm sure on this friday they're going to start thinking, what can we do to change the subject? let's get on it something else. good luck with that. all right. jonah, always a pleasure. thank you for joining us on this friday. >> great to be here. thank you. >> what do you think about that, the president's credibility and the burn rate on it? e-mail us. meanwhile, 20 minutes after the top of the hour. chances are your weekend will start way before 5:00 o'clock today. we've got the exact time when people check out and it's going to surprise you. johnny knoxville making a comeback at the box office. >> here, try to adjust it a

welcome back. it's time for news by the numbers. first, 76,000. that's how many people are going to lose their health insurance because of obamacare. blue cross-blue shield says it's being forced to cancel that many plans because the health care law is too ex opinionsive. next, zero. that's how many bids were actually placed at a colorado auction for the right to build solar energy plants.

want. >> i can't advise. >> but you are advising me. >> i just need you to be sure you're locked in. >> fox news contributor, kevin mccarthy joins us right now. hope you're locked in because we need you to perform. tell us united about "the couns" >> i was so geeked out about this. ridley scott, you have a great cast, brad pitt, obviously penelope cruz and one of the greatest authors of our generation writing his first script. he wrote "no country for old men." the problem is the dialogue feels like it was written for a book. it was too wordy. he didn't know thousand transition into writing a screen play. michael fastbender is fantastic. he continues to prove he's one of the best actors working today. but my biggest issue is the last three minutes of the movie. honestly, bring a stopwatch. go to an hour and 50 minutes and then roll out.
just leave. it's the last three minutes. i gave it three out of five. it's a matinee. >> in a situation like that, you have these established actors, if you're picking that up about the dialogue, don't they? >> i don't know. the writer is so famous, they probably said this is probably really good to read. but it feels like they're reading a theatrical play. it doesn't make sense for a movie. it's good matinee. don't pay the full ticket price. >> what about "bad grandpa"? is it worth it? >> if you would have told me in january that i'd be giving a better review to "bad grandpa" over" the counselor," i would have laughed. listen, i'm a fan of the series that johnny knoxville created. the first three movies made over $344 million. here you're dealing with an 86-year-old grandfather who is bringing his eight-year-old grandson on a cross-country tour. the pranks they pull are genius.
i was in pain laughing. i had tears in my eyes. for people who don't know, they film these with fake cameras, with a hidden camera and go in afterward and tell everybody they just shot for a movie, do you mind if they sign a release? some people won't, that's why their faces are blurred out. i gave it 3 1/2 out of 5. it's the hardest i've laughed. not necessarily the best comedy, but the funniest i've seen so far this year. if you're not a fan of the series, you may not like it. but for me growing up on it, i enjoyed it. >> that looks hilarious. you're wearing a pumpkin colored shirt because it is the season for halloween. you've got your top five spookiest movies of all time for the season. >> i did. this is just a list in no particular order. "psycho," alfred hitchcock. "the exorcist" from 1973. "halloween." that very famous, beautiful score for the movie. "alien," which most people
consider to be a sci-fi film. and then finally "the shining." really quick, about "psycho," cool facts about that movie, the shower scene was three minutes long. over 50 cuts. the blood they used was chocolate syrup. and the sound of the knife was actually a knife going into a melon. very famous scene in the movie. "psycho," i'll tweet out more at kevinmccarthytv. >> i think "the shining requesting" always scares the living daylights out of me. >> kevin, thank you. >> absolutely. >> folks out there in tv lapped, e-mail us or facebook or tweet us your favorite scary movies. >> and why. >> that's right. coming up, maryland's attorney general, so it's back to his job. he's going to crack down on illegal activity, right? that's what he said. so what's he doing at this underage booze fest? trust us, you do not want to miss his excuse. >> there he is. >> then apparently he didn't want to yield.

if i would have gone there, i wouldn't have called the cops and said close it down. i would just say hey, mary, sally, or peter, come on. we're going home. >> interesting. >> it is kind of crazy. >> they ended up with different kids with those same names, you would have taken them home. >> maryland is really overwhelmingly democratic state. he's probably going to get reelected and i can hardly wait for the inauguration. >> to replace o'malley as governor? >> that's going to be a blowout party when he's inaugurated. >> would you say that photo looks like "animal house"? >> it does. >> he's not o'malley's pick. >> he's on the red solo cup party. let's go on over to heather nauert who has got the headlines for this friday morning. >> the red solo cup party. reminds me of "back to school." remember that one with rodney daingerfield? >> yes. >> they go streaking or something? >> thanks, guys. got news. khalid shake shake, the 9-11 mastermind, taunts guards from

america is becoming an entitlement nation. look at these stats. a census report shows in 2011, more than 49% of americans received some sort of assistance from the government. in fact, the united states has spent $3.7 trillion on welfare programs over the last five years. do numbers like this suggest that america is on the road towards socialism? let's ask arthur brooks, president of the american enterprise institute. what's so different about those numbers, arthur? >> look, those numbers are rising. they've been rising all the way through the recession, all the way through the crisis. the problem is that these numbers always tend to rise and never tend to fall. so we're going to come off the cliff, people are going to start going back to work, we hope. the trouble is we're not going to have people coming off these unearned entitlement benefits and that changes our nation permanently. >> in what way? >> well, what's happened in europe basically is that we've created an entire class of people who learned helplessness, who have gone away from the work force, who actually don't know how to be part of the work force. the problem with that is not the
economic cost. that's bad enough. it's the human cost. it's a real moral problem when people are so divorced from a productive way of life, we can't afford that in america for moral reasons. that's not the american dream. >> so 49 million social security. 49 million got food stamps. 13 million lived in public or subsidized housing. what do you say to people right now listening saying, well, they don't understand. america is a compassion at people. we want to help those who need more. >> that's great. i do believe that we're a compassionate country. we give more to charity per capita than any other country in the history of the world. ten times more per capita than the italians, for example. simply no comparison on that score. the key thing that we have to remember is that what america needs to help the poor the most is not welfare benefits. we can have a safety net. i think it's great we have a social safety net burks we need to be warriors for jobs. the whole idea that we have a thicket of regulations and opaque and nontransparent laws that's making it harder for
people to hire, that's what's hurting poor people. >> if you're a politician and what's best for the country is to get those numbers down in terms of entitlements, you would want to get elected. how do you get elected by saying i'm taking something away from someone? what's your recommendation? >> the recommendation is to start with what you're offering a and what you're offering a is being ruthless to create jobs, getting out of the way of entrepreneurs and businesses. making it easier for everybody to start a job, to be an entrepreneur even if you're poor. if you want to be a landscaper, you should have to have nothing but a lawn mower in this country. that's not what we're doing. make the offer of what we have and then talk about what we need to take away. >> harry reid said yesterday americans don't mind paying more tax. republicans in washington that are fighting against it. we want to pay more taxes to pay into this. what is your take on that? >> it's an easy thing to say. the truth of the matter is that when only about half of americans have any federal income tax liability, you can
say things like that and it can even be relatively uncontroversial. the truth of the matter is when americans think about that a little deeper, they know we don't have a revenue problem. we don't have a republicans not willing to pay tax problem. we have a big entitlement and spending problem and that's where we need to start. >> we hit all-time high in revenue intake. arthur brooks, thanks for getting up this morning. >> thanks, brian. >> 11 minutes before the top of the hour. remember the phone operator who admitted obamacare had problems? this morning she is fired and kathleen sebelius still has a job. does that sound odd to you? sean hannity, who has been following this case closely and in the middle of it, will tell us what he's done about it next hour on our show. and you've seen him serve up some of the most brutal honesty to restaurants across the country. this morning he's serving it to us. robert irvine here next. >> all italian restaurants, big

a lot of people are afraid to smoke things. we've got hickory chips, pecan wood, and this is a traditional smoker where we put the wood on the bottom, put it on to heat. they start to smoke. we turn off the heat, put the whole rib eye in, cover it and cover it for 20 to 25 minutes. >> you can do this inside? >> duke it inside. >> i thought smoking was outside? >> no, it's real easy. if you don't have a cast iron one, you can use aluminum, poke holes in it the same way. >> are we sauteing here? >> watch this. hot pan. >> sear? >> sear. grapeseed oil is much better than olive oil? >> why. >> it's a higher temperature. 425 degrees. omega 3 and 6 and really good for your skin. we'll serve that with brussel sprouts. i know you're gluten free. we've got things for you here. sweet potatoes are really good for us also.

in hearings on capitol hill, web site contractors admitted the government is to blame for these delays. ainsley earhart is here sorting through everything this morning. i watched you sorting in the hall. have you come up with anything? >> i have. let me tell but it, brian. the government contractors responsible for the obamacare web site launch answering some tough questions yesterday. congress began a series of investigations and yesterday's hearings lasting 4 1/2 hours. one of the contractors admits he conducted a brief test by trying to log on and the site did not work. >> i logged on to create an account, was able to do so. i just never received a confirmation e-mail. >> so it didn't work? >> didn't work. >> it didn't work and the site still launched. so who is to blame? who allowed the site to go live without fixing the problems first? one contractor putting the blame directly on the client. the federal government.
>> it was our client's responsibility for end to end testing, sir. >> things get especially heated when one democrat says republicans are using these hearings just to gain political advantage. >> would the gentleman yield? >> no, i will not yield to this monkey court or whatever this is. >> others, including democrats, say there is no excuse criticizing washington continuously saying the site is overwhelmed. too many people trying to log on at once. >> amazon and ebay don't crash the week before christmas and pro flowers doesn't crash on valentine's day. >> she makes a good point. if you're wondering when it will be fully functional, one of the contractors said, quote, i don't like to raise expectations. >> they did a good job of that. we don't expect anything. >> you sure don't. >> it's not going to happen. >> not for a while. >> thank you very much. all right. geraldo rivera joins our --
>> hello, good morning, everybody. hora? >> good morning. >> how are you fairing with these two bullies? >> fine, except for brian. >> he's always been like the punching bag. >> why is that? >> it's because you're so affable, your nature. so jeanial that people feel they can make fun of you. >> they see a lot of vulnerability. >> are the marines vulnerable by going to these smaller hats? >> i have a couple of admissions first. i have severe reservations still and i know this is politically incorrect about the role of women in combat. i'm old-fashioned about that. but i think that there is a direct connection between that and sexual assaults and all the harassment and all the rest. i don't appreciate it. i also believe that in that same vein n that same political correctness, when you look at the pentagon, we're all for a strong defense, my goodness.
when you look at the pentagon, the world's largest office building, there are a lot of people in there whose sole job is hr, kind of stuff. not combat, not war fighting. or is this appropriate or is that appropriate? is it the men's room the appropriate size and all the rest of that? i have very good friends in the building. obviously i've been covering the combat for four decades now. i've seen people go from very low rank, now they're in superior ranks right now. they tell me there are meetings in the pentagon to have meetings and talk about what we're going to do at the next meeting. i think that's what happened with this hat situation. someone sat around and said, you know, why do we have a different hat for females? doesn't that disadvantage them? >> how much did it cost? >> we spoke with a gunnery sergeant who said the female, says it will degrade women. >> i don't know, degrading or not, the idea that you would spend $8 million on something as silly and irrelevant as this, how does this help the war
fighting capability of the best fighting unit on earth, the united states marine corps, for goodness sakes? and to really go into this distraction, this is a symbol of what is wrong with a top heavy bureaucracy and it really does not reflect well on what happens in the pentagon. >> we'll find out soon whether or not they decide to spend the money. >> what's the point? >> what is the point? you will admit that fox news channel and talk radio pretty much the only places where you will get news on what's going on regarding the attacks in benghazi. you agree? >> absolutely. >> maybe the main stream media are starting to wake up because this weekend, lara logan on "60 minutes" is going to talk to a survivor from that night in benghazi and what he's got to say is stunning. here is a snippet from the sunday show. >> so what's going on? he said, we're getting attacked. i said, how many? and he said, they're all over
the compound. and i was shocked. i didn't know what to say. i said, let's just keep fighting. i'm on my way. >> unarmed and terrified, was surround by heavily armed gunmen, but they still sounded the alarm. >> they said, we're here to kill americans, not libyans. so they give him a good beating, pistol whipped them, beat them with their rifles. and let them go. >> we're here to kill americans? >> that's what they said, yes. >> not libyans. >> right. so that was where the ambassador was and that's where it all went down and that guy helped train the libyan guards there. unarmed. >> let's talk about what he says and what he does not say, at least in the clip. i haven't seen the entire lara logan interview. she's one of the most ferocious, brave, war correspondents on earth and a female. i hasten to add that. in terms of what the interviewee
said there, he said two things. number one, that we knew from all of the various reports that security at the consulate was woefully inadequate and he verifies that. why is he unarmed? why are the libyan guards unarmed? he also makes the point, i believe, and you'll see in this piece on sunday, that repeated requests for additional security at the consulate were denied from washington. those are the two points and we have been solid and consistents on those points almost from the very beginning. what he does not say -- again, this is where people get so mad at me -- he does not say they were additional military units stationed that could have in some magical way come and saved our people -- >> that wasn't his department. >> no. but what we do know and what he corroborates is security woefully inadequate, repeated requests for additional security denied by state department central. >> let me add this, lara logan said she was outraged that there was no retribution for the
killing of americans because in that middle east against these terrorists, that is the message they walk away with. you can pull this off and it won't be hell to pay. >> i absolutely agree. i think a is a glaring deficiency in the obama administration's response to the benghazi tragedy. i will, however, also hasten to add, remember al-libi, the guy who did the embassy bombings. they took him down, what is it now, several weeks ago in libya. i'm telling you -- >> there might not have been a call if we took them down between '98 and 2001. >> but they will get them eventually or i'll go and get the damn creeps myself. >> i believe you. >> you'll try. >> we're going to be watching your show this weekend. >> steve, i would appreciate it, 10:00 o'clock eastern time, saturday night. >> it's a date. >> who is on? >> i got a lot of various crime stories. but we do have a real hard look at the boston murder of the
teacher by the 14-year-old. there is more to that story than meets the eye. >> it's terrible. we're going to be watching. in the meantime, we turn to heather nauert who has got some headlines for this friday. >> some other news to tell you about 9 minutes after the hour. a fun night at the fair turns into a nightmare. a ride suddenly starts moving again as people were trying to get off of it. this happened last night at the state fair in north carolina. the ride is called the vortex and it flips passengers upside down as it heads up to the sky. when it restarted, people were thrown to the ground. one witness said people were, quote, falling like rain drops. >> this has shaken all of us a little bit and we definitely have these folks in our thoughts and prayers. >> five people have been hurt. we're told two of them have serious injuries. some of them fell 30 feet to the ground. moments ago, three hostages were released from a drugstore in north carolina. they were held for several hours when an attempted robbery turned into a stand-off.
this happened in the town of belmont. when cops arrived, the gunmen fired on them. eventually the cops were able to nab the guy and no one was hurt. a rescue mission could get underway today to save two americans captured by pirates off the coast of nigeria. rebels there say they're in contact with the pirates and they can help rescue the americans. a captain and an engineer were taken during the attack. it's believed they were brought to shore. james kristen dulu negotiated with those pirate when is they took over one of his ships. he joined us earlier on "fox & friends." >> i'm sure their lives are really not at risk because once again, this is their business. if they start to kill hostage, it would kill their business model. they're businessmen. they're not fanatics. >> the u.s. navy is monitoring that situation. and if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. that's what one animal had to do. it's adorable.
okay. that is not an intruder. it's not a pig. it's ruby, the wombat. she's a loyal pet and lives in australia. she's a marsupial and rescued by a loving family, nursed back to health and then released into the wild. yet another crazy australian animal story. >> you know what? that's another good reason not to have a doggy door. it's not just for dogs. >> like "nanny and the professor." didn't rags run in and out of the doggy door. >> do you remember that? >> all right. >> 12 minutes after the top of the hour on this friday. >> coming up, a call center worker fired after talking to sean hannity about problems with obamacare. but kathleen sebelius still has her job. sean hannity live to react. >> he's maryland's top lawman, the attorney general. it's his job to crack down on illegal activity, right?

extremists attacked the shopping mall. you remember that. targeting all non-muslims. remember, there was a test whether you knew the muslim religion. 67 killed. then pakistan, september 22, taliban suicide bombers killed at least 85 at the all saints church. then syria, september 27, islamist rebels attacked two christian churches. october 4 in kenya, muslims riot and set fire to a christian community. there four kill. in cairo, gunmen killed at least four, including two young girls at a coptic christian wedding in cairo. >> christians are saying, what are you getting me involved for? what's your problem with christians? it's not like they're on the offensive? >> this is a horribly ignored issue. the christian population in the middle east has declined precipitously in the last century. they are under attack in the middle east and in other places around the world. brilliant article in the los angeles times pointed out that
we're coming up on the 75th anniversary of crystal knock, the beginning of the persecution of the jews by the nazis. he says let's look at history. let's see what's happening then and what's happening now. are there parallels? is the american government responding to it? effectively not. is the u.n. responding to it? effectively not. there's a bill in congress, hr 301, that calls for an envoy in the middle east to address this issue. >> it's very easy for us to do. it's not saying it's 100% successful. but you would say you need to start securing the christians in your community or the aid will stop. our troops aren't gog keep coming. >> some of the people tweeted us this morning, they said, stop the aid now in order to stop the terrorist attacks on christians. it's a very important and disturbing issue. are we too pc to say it? the american government over the last 40 years said yeah, there is political terror. but is there religious terror? are we strong enough to step up and say that religious terror
exists in the world? >> it does. and what about the role that the vatican is playing? do you think it's strong enough? >> i think the vatican is playing a stronger role than it has in the past. they're speaking out even more. they need to speak out on this particular issue. they speak out for all kinds of religions. they should also be speaking up for christianity as it goes forward. yeah, i think they're taking a strong role and it's welcome and necessary, absolutely. >> all right. have a great weekend. >> you, too. >> meanwhile, 21 minutes until the -- make that 11 minutes. up next, two new moms sent home from the hospital with the wrong babies. wait until you hear how they figured it out three weeks later and while kathleen sebelius gets to keep her job, this woman gets canned for talking to sean hannity and being honest about obamacare. sean joins us now and how sean stepped up big time.

concerns. three weeks later, both mothers back at the same clinic for a checkup and swapped stories. they did a dna test and got the right kids back that day. that's your news. >> thanks. good thing both went back. this week on his radio show, sean hannity, we talked about it -- got through to earline davis, an obamacare operator. >> how come it's so hard to get on this web site? >> everyone is trying to get in at one time and we're having a lot of glitches in the system. >> a lot of glitches in the system. did they tell you to tell us that? >> we have a script for that. >> so people are reporting to you the real deal? >> yes, sir, they are. >> yeah. have you ever caught anybody that really likes it yet? >> no, not really. >> wow. the next day, davis was fired for that call. why did she lose her job when no one else has been fired over the obamacare glitches?
why does being honest get you fired? joining us, sean hannity. we got him up a little early. >> good morning. i've been watching. i just saw you had geraldo and peter johnson on. i've been watching. >> good. so first off, you're in the middle of this thing, what is your thought? when you hung up the phone with her, do you say to yourself, she's going to be in trouble? >> i did in my mind, i actually said it in the call at one point, one of the calls. i made a series of them, that something could happen. but it's odd, the president of the united states told us to call the number. now, in many ways, i'm sure liberals would laugh at this, but i think it was a public service. we have as many as 500-plus radio stations. we have 15 million people that listen to the show. and i figured if i made the call, that would prevent that fewer number of people from actually calling 'cause they would get the benefit of hearing it. so i thought it was -- to be helpful.
the president had said you can sign up on the web site. if you can't sign up on the web site, call the toll free number. they'll sign you up. every time we called, they told us to go back to the web site. she was pretty honest. she told us look, don't go back for another 42 hours. did you ever call an 800 number and have somebody that was really not helpful, kind of rude? >> all the time. >> earline was just the opposite. she was kind, she was nice. she was terrific. she was thoughtful. she was honest. just really, really, really wonderful. as it turns out, this was a fairly new job for her. she had only been there about five weeks. she had been through training. and here we are at a point where kathleen sebelius is saying that she doesn't work for all of us. well, i have news for her, she does. and kathleen sebelius, who spends all this money for this debauchle of a rollout, she has her job and here is a woman that makes 11.39 an hour who gets fired. >> and she got fired -- we
should point out, you did what you're supposed to do. you asked, hey, is it okay if i put you on the radio? >> you have to do that. we did all the right things. >> you followed your protocol. she said yeah. it's going to be fine. apparently they never told her in training you're not supposed to talk to the media. so she got fired. and then because she got fired and you felt lousy about it, she made $26,000 a year. you are going to pay her that money out of your own pocket to make this right. >> you know, she shouldn't get fired because i made a phone call and it was public. she did nothing wrong. nothing. there is no reason she should have been fired. she was very clear to us yesterday and we had her on the program last night that she went through a training period. at no time was she told that if somebody calls up and they want your answers, if they say they're on the radio that you can't do that. i think the reason they might have gotten mad is when i asked
if -- that very clip that you just played, is anybody happy about it? she gave an honest earn. >> you also set up a web site to help her get a job. you've had a ton of feedback. >> elisabeth, it really is heartwarming. every once in a while when you think there is no hope for humanity, all of these people have been writing. judge alex wrote may note last night. he wants to donate money to her. hundreds of people have written us so far and they're offering a jobs. people want to send her encouraging notes. other people want to send her money. some people say they want to send her gift cards. so we've worked out a way that we're going to collect all of those things. we set up a web site, jobs at hannity.com. and we're specifically looking for a job for her down in panama city. and so -- >> she doesn't want to do this anymore. she wants to be a waitress, right? >> she was only on this job for five weeks, brian. i think it was brian.
>> yep. >> she was on this job for five weeks. and she has a history of mostly work in the restaurant business which by the way, i share that background with her. shience on the air. so also the radio station we're on down there, fm news talker, they actually offered her a job right away as a call screener. >> that's fantastic. sean, out of curiousity, she's working there at the call center for the affordable care act. did the government give her health care? >> that's a good question that i never asked, steve. we'll be back in touch with her later tonight. i'll get that answer for you. >> once again, the web site if they want to e-mail. >> if you want to send an encouraging note, 'cause we're going to gather them down and send them is jobs at hannity.com. one of the things, too, she's taking it really, really well. they treated her horribly when they fired her. >> i heard. >> it sounds like it. >> they walked her in. they did the hr routine. she couldn't even clean out her
own desk. and literally had her escorted out of the building, as if she's a criminal? she did something wrong? she told the truth. she did her job and she did it in a way that anybody in the call answering business would be proud of, should be proud of. >> are you in front of the television? >> yes. >> do you want to read the tease? can we shoot that? >> there is a slight delay. >> you asked an honest question. she gave you an honest answer and i truly think so many americans think you're doing the right thing right here for her. >> yeah. i'm glad. >> good man. >> still not up on my television set yet. but coming up next on "fox & friends," there is great programming with elisabeth, steve and brian. >> very nice. >> we'll watch you tonight at 10 and listen to you in the afternoon. >> yeah. actually i'm off tonight. they're doing a special on charles krauthammer tonight. >> monday through friday next week. >> we'll see you next week. >> have a great weekend. >> thank you, sean. doing the right thing. half past the top of the hour. >> that's right.

talking about the lockout, the debt ceiling. it is all about obamacare. >> well, it's an interesting question, which is did the republicans really misplay this and think if they had kept the government running and there was no focus on this and all of the focus, because fox has been on it from the beginning issues some of the other mainstream networks have not until just recently, although they're on it now, too -- think of all the focus had been on the rollout of obamacare from october 1. in fact, i will tell you, the president that was senate republicans at one point during the shutdown and in effect said to them, teased them said, you guys misplayed them. if you hadn't shut down the government, all the focus would be on the focus of obamacare. he's upset about it. but it would be a lot worse if we hadn't had two weeks of shutdown. >> now those distractions are gone. what do you think of the accountability, or lack thereof? kathleen sebelius says she doesn't work for anybody here. they're not going to fire her.
the american people don't want her to go. what do you think will come of all this? >> i don't know. i don't think she's going to be fired right away, among other reasons, because the administration's tendency is they don't fire people when they're under fire, if you will. they don't want to make it look like their opponentses have forced the person out. it may be that, you know, a month or two months from now that kathleen sebelius suddenly decides she wants to spend more time with her family. but i doubt at this particular moment that she will be forced out. among other things, it would be an admission of a huge mistake and a huge defeat by a president who doesn't like to do that. >> you know what you did in you effectively set up a compelling show on sunday. we have to leave you right on the cliff. you brought us right there and it makes everyone say to themselves, i cannot wait for chris wall's show on sunday. great job. the series of questions and answers, very few could match that. >> we'll be watching. >> yeah, we're done.
>> is that it? >> what a promo. >> what do you want! >> do i get to mention in addition that peter doocy had do a report for us and what's happening with young people? >> that's right. >> do i get o say that? -- to say that? we may not have time for peter doocy on the show. >> oh, wait a second. >> i'll try not to mess up peter's show. i promise you that. >> peter's show, that's good. after sunday. chris, thank you very much. we will be watching fox news sunday on your local fox affiliate. check your local listings for show time. >> thanks. >> all right. >> heather nauert has headlines for us. >> you're just sitting this like a nice guy while kilmeade is giving him a hard time. >> i'm trying to give him a promo. >> some headline, thanks to help from a government official's phone book, the nsa was able to eavesdrop on phone calls from 35
world leaders. according to a brand-new leak from edward snowden, the nsa had encouraged officials at the pentagon and the white house to share their rolodexs so they could access foreign leaders' information. the 35 names haven't been released yet. but earlier this week, german chancellor angela merkel accused the u.s. of spying on her phone calls. we'll hear more about that one. a little kid being hailed a hero this morning. his mom was driving her two sons home from school when she started having a seizure. her ten-year-old jumped into action from the back seat of the car and put the car in park. then he called 911. >> 911, what's the address to your emergency? >> help. >> what's your address? >> i'm at nash elementary. >> seconds after putting that car in park, his mom fell forward and her foot hit the gas. >> i was scared. i didn't know if she was sick or
significant. >> my son knew exactly what to do in that situation under all that pressure. >> he's my hero. he's my super hero. >> tyler learned how to dial 911 in school. maryland's democratic attorney general, who is running for governor of that state, has some real explaining to do this morning. he was caught on video at an underage drinking party that his son was attending. he said he within there to check on his son and that nothing he saw at that party concerned him. listen to this. >> what i could have done was to investigate whether there was drinking going on and taken action on that and for that, i probably should have ton that. in -- done that. in hindsight now, i should have probably assumed there was drinking and talked to chaperones about what they thought was appropriate. but i wasn't there to make a decision whether there was drinking or not and that wasn't really what i was there to do. >> he says he now regrets that. by the way, what's ironic is
that he's previously taped psa's against underage drinking: those are your headlines. what do you guys got going on? >> we got plenty. 20 more minutes of program. >> all right! >> thanks for asking. >> straight ahead, the pc police are ruining halloween. students being told dressing up like a cowboy crosses the line. really? really? is that going too far "sign up for rewards each quarter" card. it's the no-games, no-messing-'round, no-earning-limit-having, do-i-look-like-i'm-joking, turbo-boosting, heavyweight-champion- of-the-world cash back card. this is the quicksilver cash back card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere, every damn day. now, tell me, what's in your wallet? a playground of innovation,. color, and design.

well, the pc police are back in town just in time for halloween. >> yep. several universities cracking counsel on halloween costumes, telling students if they dress up like a cowboy or indian, that's offensive. do we really need a rule for that? now we're joined by campus reform, cath rip. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> university of boulder, colorado, show up as a cowboy or indian or anything involving a
sombrero, that's over the line. >> right. i had some students, at campus reform, we had students reach out saying, i don't know what i'm going to be. the cowboy problem was it's not an accurate representation of someone who lives in the west. >> what is? >> these students are trying to go to halloween parties. not be involved in reenactments. how far could this go? i don't know. >> can you dress as politicians? what else is off limits here? >> anything that's an inaccurate representation of a culture. anything involving a sombrero is offensive. that's the same question students have. >> what if you are from the culture that is being depicted in your costume? >> you better know about your culture to represent it accurately. i don't know. it seems like anything would be wrong really. >> what's going on here? >> see, it's very weird because a lot of these people who are very liberal, they're all about free expression.
but obsessions with political correctness like this make it impossible to have expresssive, real conversations. so it's just -- it's worse and worse every year, i think. >> do you think it would be inappropriate if i went as a ghost, because then people would say you're a holy ghost and it's a religious thing? >> probably not. but if someone complained, then yes. you'd have to be an accurate representation of a ghost. >> what is the actual consequence students would face if they dressed as a cowboy? >> when i spoke to them, they said there wouldn't be any formal consequences. however, these letters are put out officially by the administration. you have to spend four or more years at a college, you don't want the administration thinking that you're offensive or racist or insensitive. that might make it a difficult time at school. >> a moment ago we had the full screen and i'd like to just -- can we put it up again that shows exactly -- because we had mentioned the sam british prime minister tony blair row and stuff. so you -- sombrero. you got a guy second from the left looks like a hillbilly.
you got a jeannie in there -- genie in there. cowboy, indian. is that a geisha girl at the end? >> are these not going to be allowed in catalogs? >> hopefully this isn't some sort of trend where people are taking the lead from these universities. but regardless, these are the future. these kids are the future. so these are things learning. student body president, university of minnesota was trying to explain, okay. cowboys are okay. indians, not okay. this doesn't even make sense. where do you draw the line? >> i think i would prefer to have my kid show up as any one of those as opposed to miley cyrus. >> right. exactly. a cowboy costume. that's about as tame as you can get, i would think, especially on a college campus. >> no kidding. you know all about it from campus reform. thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> it's now a dozen minutes before the top of the hour. it's supposed to keep your family safe from any storm, even the most powerful storms like hurricane sandy. we're going to put this gear to
the test, coming up next. >> first let's check in with martha for what's coming up at the top of the hour. good morning. >> hey there. good morning. so kathleen sebelius says she's not worried about her job. she doesn't work for the people who are calling for her resignation. but is she right about that? we'll get into that with representative joe parton, he was smack in the middle of that heat yesterday. he joins us with what's next. brett favre's shocking admission coming up at the top of the hour. bill and i will see you then. advil congestion relief. it delivers a one-two punch at pain and sinus pressure with the power of advil and a nasal decongestant in a single pill. advil congestion relief. chose prego homestyle alfredo over ragu classic alfredo. prego alfredo?!

many people are still rebuilding their lives today a full year later after the storm. >> this year's hurricane season isn't over yet. how can folks plan ahead and hurricane proof their homes? let's ask our expert, richard from this old house on pbs. he just completed a series helping sandy victims rebuild. and aaron, ceo of a company that builds generators. welcome. thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> think being it one year later and how we can get out there and protect our homes. so what do you have to say about windows and doors and the things that typically break and cause so much damage? >> once those windows break, you've broken the shield, now the water gets in, that's when the structural damage happens. so we learned a lot in new jersey postsandy about how to protect it. we know about plywood. >> i remember taping windows before. >> no, no taping. no taping. >> that's a big myth, yeah. it creates larger shards of
glass. so do not do that. you have windows, right? >> right. what do you is start with plywood. the plywood. you want five eighths minimum plywood and we all know about that. but sometimes the windows are bigger than a four by eight sheet of plywood can handle. they've invented this fabric that can be installed over the window. you got a big window, now if something impacts, it will block it out. >> it will catch the glass? >> that's right. it will catch it, but it will keep the impact so you won't break into the window. >> how much does that cost? >> a bit of a premium for it. then what they've invented now is this window glass like this. you know the glass in cars? >> sure. >> it doesn't completely shatter. it keeps you in the car. this is to keep project tiles from coming in. it's glass with a little membrane in the middle. the same technology. >> you have that building to do
something like this? >> right. this is window right here. anybody feel like breaking a window? >> sure. >> wait a second. can we break a window? >> i think we have a bat. this is one of the -- >> you're going to swing it? >> i'll try. with a bat. okay. sure. all right. richard. >> go ahead. right there. go, girl. >> if that had been a tree branch -- >> too bad i couldn't do that to my boss in college. >> let's learn about the generators. let's come on over here. what could you tell bus generators, because we heard a lot of them got flooded. so you got to seal them off. >> you do. you don't want water to get into your generator. it's an electrical appliance. >> what did you bring? >> we start here. we've got basically there is two different set-ups. you can get a gasoline powered portables. >> which i had. >> which was a problem because
you couldn't get gasoline. >> exactly. >> so this works in a pinch and if you marry that up with a transfer switch like that, you don't need the extension cords and stuff. a basic set-up. what people are doing now, because of the gas issue, is they're stepping up to the fully installed, fully automatic. they run off natural gas or propane and turn on the home's electrical system. it sits outside the house. weatherproof. >> i'm in the process of getting this. but my fear is this will get flooded. >> if you have an issue, if you're close to the coast, a lot of times you have to have these built up. they have to be on a platform. but generally, again, you don't want water in any of these products. but you're going to be okay with this product. >> what kind of investment do i have to make? >> this retails for $4,500. and starts at 2,000. >> what was this? >> this right here is 800 bucks. >> it's peace of mind, your phone, electric, furnace, air conditioning will work. refrigerator.
people are moving up to this type of product. >> stick around. thanks so much. great stuff. we'll find out what the bill will be for elisabeth. how about a round of applause! more "fox & friends" in a moment, if we don't freeze to death. ♪ when our little girl was born, we got a subaru. it's where she said her first word.
