the march of dimes charity. 238 pounds. how do you grow something that large? >> incredible. >> so much pumpkin bread you could make with that. all to charity, though. "fox & friends" starts now. good morning. it's monday, october 28. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. overnight the lights go out on healthcare.gov. the latest glitch knocking out service in all 50 states. the obamacare rollout debacle continues and we have all the details today. >> the entertainer chris brown goes for the knockout and gets himself locked up. why the rapper is waking up in the slammer this morning down in d.c. >> he put himself in the line of fire, dodging a barrage of bullets, even being hit, all this to save a fellow officer. his heroic story and how he's being rewarded is coming your way.
"fox & friends" on this monday's edition starts just about now. >> this is jimmie johnson. you're watching "fox & friends." ♪ ♪ >> jimmie johnson, nfl? or jimmie johnson the driver who almost got if fisticuffs. >> i think that is the driver. i was in dallas this weekend, the land of cowboys. >> how was that? >> it was great. i went to my daughter's homecoming. i'm exhausted. >> khoeplg -- homecoming can do that for you. >> so far the affordable care act, the rollout of obamacare has been absolutely flawless, right? i'm being funny. another debacle. last night verizon which apparently runs part of the data hub, can you hear meñ no, nobody can hear anybody in 50 states. phi stkopb says failure --
verizon says failure of the networking components. any way, it didn't >> connectivity issue is a problem. on saturday kathleen sebelius was bragging how well the program was working and how it can perform quick calculations. none of those calculations were working yesterday during the shutdown. blaming parties going on because they were blaming the contractor, a part of verizon, for this issue. but all the information hubs, that hub holds your social -- nothing important -- your financial information. that is now being looked at as being exposed potentially. >> you're talking about exposure. the big question is, kathleen sebelius is going to have to answer she thought a set of questions. now she is going to have to answer hub questions. then she will have to answer security questions this week. the high-ranking guy with the f.b.i., representative mike rogers, now in charge of security in the house
says i've got a problem with the security on healthcare.gov. >> it was very clear to me in the hearing that they do not have an overarching solid cyber security plan to prevent the loss of private information. i am even more concerned today than i was even last week. i know they've called in another private entity to try to help with the security of it. the problem is they may have to redesign the entire system the way the system is designed, it is not secure. >> you got the gist of what he was saying. when you put in all your personal information to find out what you're going to be paying for your plan, now you've got to be hesitant when you log on that this information is not going to go public. >> even worse, if it is not secure, imagine if every person who applied could potentially be the victim of identity theft. that's a new wrinkle in what has been a debacle. it's been so bad the
geniuses across the street at "saturday night live" saluted kathleen sebelius this past saturday night. did you miss it? >> it still isn't loading properly. we're properly just overloaded with traffic. millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov, which is great news. unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time. so if you're in a rush, consider using our low-risk website with simpler fonts and graphics. >> that's funny. >> funny but scary because the truth is that this is a huge problem right now. and senator john barraso, the republican, he actually said sebelius is a complete laughingstock and i think he means it in a serious way. >> you talk about secretary sebelius and her comments. she's already the
laughingstock of america, so she's lost considerable credibility. >> he, by the way, is a doctor. valuable insight there. senator barraso has been out and about about this. the big question is, is this not working because certain states have decided not to set up their own exchanges? or is this not working because they haven't planned it well, haven't gotten the right technology just bad? that question is a perfect question, steve, to put to the kentucky governor, who happens to be a democrat. >> he is. he was on with "meet the press" yesterday and it was revealedñr a whole bunch of people in his state are signing up, but they're not signing up for obamacare. listen to this. >> at 12:01 a.m. on october 1 when our exchange opened up to enrollment, kentuckians started swarming all over our exchange, all over our toll-free lines. and in about four weeks we've had over 300,000 kentuckians trying to find out and finding out about
affordable care act. we've signed up over 26,000 people. >> mostly medicaid. it is not the young and healthy people getting the insurance plans that are really necessary to make this system work; correct? >> of the 26,000, 21,000 are in medicaid. 5,000 are in qualified health plans. but we've got another 10,000 going on to the plans that are in the process of choosing. >> by the way, that was the magic of the follow-up question. there's 5,000 people who signed up for obamacare out of the 26,000 who signed up in kentucky, considered one of the few bright spots on the whole case. bring up this too. ten separate democrats called for a delay in obamacare. i think that number is only going to grow if this continues. >> ten democrats that are representing americans. so many more americans, to your point, would love it to be delayed. they're seeing their doctors pulling out of programs. they're getting letters from their insurance companies. now here we have this situation where our security information could be anywhere. then we have a system
that's clearly not working. those ten democrats may be representing millions in america. >> i think the delay gives the president a bailout. giving him more time to get it going. >> you think we should let it fail. >> let it go. then he avoids another election where the american people talk about theory and not implementation. >> i think it is not in his d.n.a. to say the republicans were right. they were right all along. that is what the whole government slimdown senate shutdown was about. you've got to at least delay it. of course they wanted to defund it. what's interesting about what is going on in kentucky is it looks to some as if obamacare really is medicaid. and if you're on medicaid, you know that oftentimes it is very, very hard to find a doctor. so is that the future? if that's the future, it's not what we -- >> you said maybe the president, it's not in his d.n.a. listen to one senate democrat, joe manchin, on
what bothers him about this program. not the implementation of the website. listen. >> we have a bipartisan group which we've had before when the shutdown, to get it back open. seven republicans, six democrats and an independent. nobody should be forced to buy a policy that costs more than what they had and is inferior to what they had. >> oops, that's what a republican has been saying and that's what people are finding out right now. that is a senate democrat who says if my constituents are paying more for a policy they don't want, that is not okay. >> common sense to me. >> exactly right. i think the people in the administration have known all along that everybody -- aside from the fact that the very sick and the very poor, i think they've known that the middle-class health care bill is going to go up. there is an item in the l.a. times, of all places yesterday, that said in california, the average middle-class family's health care costs, policy were going to go up 30%. there is one quotation i saw on-line that said i was
all for obamacare until i found out how much it was going to cost me. >> promises broken, but we're going to keep our promise and go to heather nauert with headlines. >> good morning. hope y'all had a great weekend. steve, glad you're back from dallas. got headlines to bring you. while you were sleeping michael jackson's former doctor walking free. conrad murray served two years of a four year sentence for giving michael jackson a deadly dose of propofol. murray says he plans to try to get his medical license back in the state of nevada. developing this morning, israeli air force attacking the gaza strip shortly after militants fired two rockets at southern israel. rockets causing no injuries reported so far. according to israel defense force, hamas is responsible for that rocket fire. we'll keep watching this one as it develops. singer chris brown waking up in jail cell yet

welcome back. it could be one of the e.p.a.'s most dramatic power grabs ever, enforcing a federal regulation to gain control of nearly all the water in america. is this government bureaucracy out of control? let's talk to fox news contributor jeanine. good morning to you. how are you? >> fine. how are you? >> fine. i'm a little disturbed when people learn of this. clean water act, sounds great. we want to turn on the tap and have clean water coming out. now the e.p.a. is grabbing a part of our water we didn't know they had their mitts in. >> this is what government does. government overreach. it is a power grab. but what the e.p.a. is doing is they're being the judge, jury and executioner because they're writing the laws for the clean water act. and the clean water act is so broad, vague and confusing that the e.p.a. is stepping in to try to impose regulations on
bodies of waters like wetlands that don't connect to bigger bodies of water or streams that don't run all year round. it is a power grab. >> as we look at some lakes and we look at some streams and rivers right here, what does the e.p.a. want to do with those? >> if this is on your property, this is about control. the e.p.a., and a lot of them are environmentalists. they care about rocks and trees. they don't care about hard-working americans who own property, who pay taxes. these regulations could be -- keep you from developing your property, keep you from perhaps fixing a storage issue, drain issue on your property, if you have water drainage issues, you need to fill in some holes or something. these regulations will keep you from doing what you want to do, what's best for your property. >> you know, it sounds, in addition to a great big power grab, it sounds like this is also a way to create some fine revenue, where if you're doing something wrong -- and who knows what it is -- it's
broad enough they can say anything is wrong, they're going to start levying fines against people for standing water on your property. >> right. or you have to get a permit. i think the bigger picture is about control because environmentalists don't want land to be developed. they don't want oil or gas or coal to be drilled out of the ground. remember, the e.p.a. has regulations on the coal industry. it's killing jobs and it's bankrupting the coal industry. when you think about it, it's a power grab across the board and people should be concerned. >> let's talk a little bit about, i believe she's now a former e.p.a. -- >> lisa jackson. >> she's the one who famously had the -- >> private e-mail accounts. now she's making a lot of money with i think apple and has not been held accountable for having those accounts. >> now we've got somebody new in the job. >> gina mccarthy. >> in charge of the current power grab. >> it's scary. you're a private property
owner. you own that land. you pay taxes on it. why should you be under the e.p.a. with what you want to do with your land? >> when i was growing up in kansas and we had ponds on our land the cows and horses would drink out of, now the e.p.a. will say do some tefgs or fine us for -- do some testing or fine us for something we've done for years. >> there are a lot of people tied up in red tape fighting government. if you're a landowner, you have water on your property, whether seasonal or all year round, you should be concerned if this passes. >> thank you, deneen borelli. is socialism headed into your kids' classroom? details about a textbook that praises fidel castro. it's the worst storm in decades in the most unlikeliest of places and it is causing headaches for travelers all around the world.

included ideas of socialism. you were wise enough to question one of the council women on this, genie blackwell. you asked her when you interviewed her, he's an apologist for fidel castro. why should this be required reading? what did she have to say? >> she said essentially in the interview what's wrong with castro? he must be doing something right. otherwise he wouldn't stay in power this long. she also said people's parents like marco rubio's who fled, he said let's be for equality, white, black and brown and these people didn't want equality. that is why they went to the united states. >> i want to throw out a couple of quotes we have on him. he said, quote, how can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism? talking about civil disobedience, he said civil disobedience is not our problem. our problem is civil obedience, our problem is people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders and millions have
been killed because of that obedience. what a statement to have essentially mandated to the high schoolers to read. is this a real possibility? >> yes, it is a real possibility. elisabeth, i'm right in the center of america's most historic square mile, independence hall. i'm a block away. then attack the deck raeurgs of independence -- declaration of independent is a ruse by wealthy white guys to become wealthier. this is a real possibility with city council i'm told that once they get the money going, they want to put zinn's book in and raise a generation of kids like howard zinn. >> a declaration -- a generation of kids that think the declaration of independence is a money scam. how real will this be? the board will still decide what is required reading? >> yes. but like everything else, this guy needs the money,
the largess coming from here. here, there's a lot of ignorance. some of these members on city council, they don't understand what howard zinn is about. they keep talking about inequality, the voice of the people, power to the people, et cetera, that is what it is about. the school district will decide but these are the people who control the money. >> you interviewed ms. black well there. what should parents do? >> what people should do in philadelphia, and what they should be aware of nationwide is watch for this coming your way. watch for this name howard zinn. he sold about two million books usually on the college level. what parents in philadelphia ought to do is they ought to tell the school reform commission -- they are the ones that run the city -- they ought to let them know on national news now, come on, this is ridiculous. any google search of this

the defend freedom bus tour has been on the road for the past three weeks, stopping in 27 cities, spreading their message of service, friday dom and defending the american dream to the american public. here with us to talk about the resuspicion they received, the ceo of concerned veterans for america, along with several other members of the military family from the tour. pete, first off, what made you put this together? n it was take the message of our organization of continued service, the vets giving back, fighting for the freedom we fought for on the battlefield. we want to value begannize more veterans to get involved in fighting for the country here at home. >> like you did running for office. >> in any way. >> we've got army ranger here who wrote a book. jean horton. her husband was a sniper killed in afghanistan. amber, helicopter pilot, served
in iraq and afghanistan. steve russell, the author of "we got him." he led in the capture of saddam hussein. his wife, cindy, military spouse. and then karen surround, her son was a member of seal team six killed in 2011. i want to highlight these timberwolf they gave their spouses or sons gave the ultimate sacrifice and they continue to be an incredible voice of what service really means. >> absolutely. do you feel -- do you feel as though america has given the sacrifice that you and your family have been going through? >> no, i feel like there has really been a complete absence of acknowledgment that we still have men fighting there now. that's what frustrates me. we need to get back engaged in this war and realize men and women are doing every month. we need to understand that there is a cost being paid, that there are real people with real families, not plastic toys that
we play with. they're human beings and we need to start addressing some of the issues going on. >> that's why it was important for you to be on this bus? >> absolutely. and also just to restore america to the core values that aaron grew up loving. it made him want to serve and defend and protect this nation. that's what i want. i just want to get it back to what my son died for. >> i agree. i think it's a great thing you're doing and taking action. you talk about capturing saddam hussein. do you think people are forgetting that? >> sure. but the good news is, we got 20 million veterans in this country. there is nothing that we can't solve if we pull together. yet many veterans won't investment that's what we're trying to do is get people to lend their voice to ours so we can make a difference. >> you had talked about sequester. people are like well it's good, we can handle it. the only people paying the price for it are the military. >> absolutely. we've been seeing how the military veterans have been used as political pawn, especially over the past month.
we understand that freedom is not free. we understand that we need to preserve the freedoms and liberties that we get to enjoy each day as americans. so that's why this tour is so important, to continue to defend freedom. >> do you think over the last ten years when people say we're battle fatigued, do we have a right to be war torn? >> we need to pay attention to the wars and pay attention to the sacrifices and those that have chosen to tie up their boots and defend their country and volunteer to make sure we're free. >> you've done that with you're book. >> i hear congressmen and senators say my constituents are war weary. there is nobody more war weary than the veterans in the military. they're a staggering underrepresented demographic in >> if you had the time, get involved in politics 'cause then we'll get on the right road. great message, guys. >> thank you. >> let's go back to steve and elisabeth to find out what's coming up for the next two hours. >> all right.

>> remember that? that was a couple weeks ago here on "fox & friends." over the weekend, the 75-year-old was inducted into the country music hall of fame in nashville. that was him performing his new song on "fox & friends." after accepting that honor, he said, quote, this is like the culmination of my career because i've done pretty much everything else and i think without this, it would have been incomplete. it would have been incomplete had he not had the chance to sing "the gambler" with all of us. that's what got him into the country music hall of fame. >> he tossed to that clip on stage. >> our song could have kept him out. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> joining us right now on this monday morning, as he does every monday morning, donald trump. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> and congratulations. i follow you on twitter. i saw the news on friday, you were awarded the t. boon pickens award on friday. >> for entrepreneur of the year. congratulations.
>> american spectator a great group. thank you very much. >> congratulations. >> while you got to work and have success, we're not having you can success with oakey's pet funeral home & obamacare. then we find out the hub they were bragging out does even work, so we start monday with their guaranteeing by the end of the month, they'll get it on track. do you buy it? >> no, that's not going to happen. and i think a bigger problem is going to be the computer is a really big problem, but a bigger problem is the wrong people are signing up. people that weren't supposed to sign up are signing up. it's going to cost a fortune. young people that had a policy, these people are now finding the new policy, if they go through obamacare, is going to cost much more money and not be as good. that was not supposed to happen. it was supposed to be the other way. >> so they're taking the fine? >> yeah. they're taking the fine, many, many people are. i've had people tell me over the weekend, they say i can't believe it. i'm getting less protection,
less of a product, if you want call it a product, and i'm paying much more money. it doesn't work. i'm not taking it. that's a big problem. nobody knew this was going to happen. that's a big problem. that's a bigger problem than the computer. now, the computer it could be a long time because from what i understand, and i'm pretty good with that stuff, you have to blow up the whole program to start all overment i don't think they can just fix it. i think they'll have to start over again. this is a mess. 635 million. by the way, that number is very low because they're just throwing money at it. >> she actually said -- kathleen sebelius, they didn't give them enough time and they said they didn't have enough money. >> well, she's got to be fired. look, let's face it, this is a woman that has done a terrible job and this is a woman that has to be fired. and fired immediately. and the president should do it. when something happens, when a baseball team loses five games and ends up doing horribly, the managers get fired. >> are we looking at mismanagement here?
honestly, in any other corporation, you have to talk about leadership and hiring people who can do what you're asking them to do, implement the task at hand. this has certainly not happened. if you see this as a corporation o'clock the president would be the ceo, no? >> well, look, elisabeth, i guess he's not going to fire himself. i know a lot of people would like to see that happen of the let's assume, let's make that assumption that he won't be firing himself, he's got to fire her. no question about it. i think as bad as it is, it's horrible, but it sends a positive signal, at least something is being done of the you can't have the same woman continue to run this because it's been a disaster. this is gross mismanagement and they never recover from it. if obamacare had a chance, which i think is going to fall of its own weight anyway, but if it had a chance, this had to be seamless. and it's a disaster. >> sure. and it flies in the face of everything the president promised us.
he promised you could keep your doctor if you wanted to. he said he would bend the cost curve down because health care is going out of control. it's not going that way. he said it would be cheaper than your cell phone and as easy as kayak or amazon and on all four of those counts, bupkus. >> they should have gotten amazon or google, that's more complicated. >> they vote for him and support him! why not ask them for a favor? >> incredible. they would have done it for nothing. if you would have said public policy, could you come in and give us the greatest web site ever? i guarantee you, the guyses at google and amazon, any one of five other company, let's not go crazy, they would have come in and done it as a public servant. they go to canada and take a company that had a horrible track record. i don't know if you seen it. this company had a record based on failures all over the place
and they go to this company and pay $635 million and that number is nothing. that number is going to go up so much. and how do they negotiate the fix as a negotiator? all they're doing is saying, look, just please fix it. fix it! you think anyone is negotiating price? i don't think so. >> they don't and they haven't. let's take a look at this other major story. in spain, they're going to accuse us of spying on 60 million. and angela merkel sending her spy experts to meet with us. she's outraged at our behavior and says we've been spying, listening on her phone calls. now we find out from the nsa is saying, we never told the president that we were spying on angela merkel. we are a mess with our allies and our enemies. if this is you, donald trump, where do you stand right now in weather it comes to the nsa and our friends? >> first of all, i think it's a terrible thing and these are really good allies of ours. i think it's just so terrible. and it's on their personal cell
phone. something interesting happened yesterday, the president said he knew nothing about it. he didn't know anything about it. and that was shocking that he didn't know about it. it almost would have been better if he did know, but he said he knew nothing about it and he's our leader. look, this has never happened. these kind of things have never happened with our country. our country is in a freefall and something better be done fast because we're a joke all over the world. >> there is a german magazine that says the president not only knew about it, but in 2010, he wanted to -- he reaffirmed it but because the quote was, according to an anonymous source, that he never trusted merkel. >> i think he knew about it, but he said that he did not know about it. i believe he knew about it. it's impossible to believe he didn't know about tapping the head of germany, the head of france, all of these big important countries, some of which are great allies, it's hard to believe the president doesn't know we're tapping their phone. so he said -- and i think it's almost worse when he said i didn't know about it, because that shows gross imcompetence.
>> because apparently according to the stories out there, there is somebody below the president who picks the targets. and if they're picking world leaders -- >> i don't know. that person doesn't report to the president. does anybody believe that one? >> it's crazy. >> we have an interesting country going on right now, folks. >> we got a lot going on. that's why we're so lucky to have the t. boon pickens award winner joining us on monday morning. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. it's now 7:11 here in new york city. >> congratulations again. coming up for the first time, we're hearing from eyewitnesses on the ground in benghazi, what he knows about the administration and what they're not telling the american people, up next. >> and it's marlin versus man. the giant fish comes crashing into the fishing boat. and one of the guys goes overboard. it's the video you're going to be talking about all day long. >> he jumped for his life, didn't he? >> wouldn't you?

all right. one of the top security officials on the ground during the benghazi attack breaking his silence last night. he says the u.s. government knew an attack was imminent and didn't do a thing about it in 2013 on 9-11. my next guest sending a letter out to the secretary of state, john kerry, demanding answers. not only does he want to know why those warnings were ignored, the other is why are the suspect s not out with -- >> what did you get out of the 60 minutes feature last night? >> the fact that the people on the ground for the first time
have come forward to tell their story about what happened and what they saw when they got to benghazi before 9-11 were the black flags of al-qaeda flying. they saw the red cross embassy attacked, the british ambassador, assassination attempt on him, and then the third thing that they put this on the internet was to take out our consulate in benghazi. this was all foreseeable and warnings were made to state department in washington and a cry for help was made by the ambassador, those cries for help were not responded to. >> the crazy thing as you pointed out, and you pointed it out in your letter, if you really want to get the guys that killed our guys, we know they're al-qaeda. that's our chief enemy out of all the islamic extremists, they did it. you say there is no reward next to their name and not on the most wanted list. >> there is a reward for justice program that brawn down the
world trade center bomber in 1993. yet these suspects, these terrorists have not been put on this list. i just think it's a sign from the administration they're not taking it seriously. it's not a priority. this could bring these terrorists to justice. it's been over a year. i think we had them in our sights and let them go and now this is the best chance we can get to apprehend them. let me say one more thing. these reports, when these guys came in to talk on "60 minutes" and saw al-qaeda flags and operatives, they telegraph that had to washington. when the attack occurred on 9-11 , it was it was a video in florida. >> they told that to the families! it was a video and we're going to get to the producers who did this. >> really offensive to the victims and we owe it to them to catch the terrorist. >> one thing missing out of the whole report last night was that these were hillary clinton's policies that they were following and not following and
there was no follow through. >> she was behind all of this. i think it's going to haunt her in any potential presidential election. i was one of the last ones to question her in congress on foreign affairs committee about these cables, about these warnings and what was your response, madam secretary? i never saw them, she said. >> what bothers me most and it's a little out of your os pis, but when hicks was told, there is no help coming and tell those who are under attack at the annex, no help is coming, i still find that -- i know that's a different page -- inexcusable and it's never been explained to me. >> this one is the most disturbing and offensive event of all the tragedy of benghazi and that is the military teaches that man left behind. no man left behind. and we left behind our ambassador and three other -- a navy seal and two foreign services officer. we left them behind to die. they called for additional help.
what was the response? we can't send any help. >> mr. chairman, what do you think it's like right now in benghazi? if there were al-qaeda flags then, what do you think it's like now that the british pulled out and everybody else? this might as well be al-qaeda country. >> this is the greatest threat to not only the region over there and the middle east, but also the homeland and that is that al-qaeda is spreading like a wildfire across northern africa. it's growing out of control. they are taking over libya, trying to take over egypt, syria, it's all playing out in syria. and i sigh again this is the greatest threat to the homeland. >> as bret baier broke a year ago, a gitmo detainee is running things over there. and world pressure let these guys go and this is what we get in response. always love having new studio. >> thanks for having me. >> all right. next up, new obamacare debauchle. why the problem in one state stretches beyond healthcare.gov.
>> with a would you do -- would do you if a man stole your purse out of a grocery cart? this woman decided to buy the thief groceries and she's here to explain why heart healthy, huh?! ugh! actually progresso's soup has pretty bold flavor. i love bold flavors! i'd love it if you'd open the chute! [ male announcer ] progresso. surprisingly bold flavor for a heart healthy soup. i've got a big date, but my sinuses are acting up.
in prison and a big fine as well. 60 of them drove. next, zero. that's how many people in oregon have been enrolled in obamacare through the exchange web site, cover oregon. the problem? apparently that web site isn't working at all. so zero has signed up. finally, $32 million. that's how much the prank-fueled movie "add grandpa" made this weekend. it ousted "gravity" as the number one movie in america. it actually looked hilarious. elisabeth, over to a great story. >> thanks. you're right about that. imagine a thief steals your wallet. you catch him red handed. what do you do next? it happened to jessica. but she took the christian way out. from him, this is a scripture that she thought of, from him who takes away your clothing, don't withhold your coat also. jessica joins us from oklahoma. we're so thankful that you're here. tell us what happened. you you're shopping for
groceries, got four kids under the age of eight. you go to reach for your phone and notice something else is missing. what happens next? >> i realized it was missing and thought, what's the best way for me to handle this situation? i just started skimming the aisles and i noticed him in a more crowded aisle and so i slowly and calmly approached him and i wanted to be quiet. i didn't want to make a scene. and, you know, a few weeks prior to that, i had been thinking about mission work and kind of researching global mission work. i thought, you know, in that moment, mission work can start right here in my community. so i walked up to him and i told him that jesus forgives me every day and that if he would give me my wallet back, that i would forgive him and i would pay for his groceries. and i did. >> jessica, that is outstanding. but how did he respond to that? what did he say to you?
>> he was ashamed. he started crying when we walked to the front and he was embarrassed. he said that he was broke and that he had kids and -- i've been in those situations, too. i had a very dark childhood and -- but i had people in my life that really lit up my world, too. so i think that it's important when people are struggling that we be kind and he was very appreciative. but he was ashamed and embarrassed and i just kept telling him that jesus loves him and he has every opportunity to turn his life around and jesus loves him unconditionally no matter what he's going through and no matter what he's done. so it was a blessing to me and i hope that it was a blessing to him, too. >> it seems as though it may have been. most people would have called the cops, demanded their stuff back and put that person in big trouble. you did so much. you forgave him and then went to go pay for his groceries and i understand $28 -- correct me if i am wrong -- the $28 was a
significant and important sign to you from god that this was all meant to be. and you did the right thing. >> it was. i hardly ever carry cash in my wallet. i think it's disgusting and i don't want it like, fondling my wallet. when i walked up there and i saw his total, you know, was 27 something, i opened my wallet and i had $28 in there. i just thought, oh, my gosh. this is totally god at work. it had nothing to do with me. it was jesus. >> his groceries totaled what? >> twenty-seven dollars and some change. i think 27.65 was the exact total. >> jessica, we need more of you out there, i say. thank you for showing us what grace and forgiveness and second chance really looks like. >> well, i appreciate that jesus shows that to me. >> you're pretty exceptional, jessica. you have a great day. >> you, too. thank you. >> thanks for being here. so what do you think?

it is every carnival goers nightmare. riders of the vortex ride at the north carolina state fair were unbuckling their belts at the end of the ride when the ride suddenly started up again and threw a lot of them to the ground. listen to this. >> we're at the state fair and the ride turned upside down and dumped everybody out. there is people who are bleeding really bad, like their head and stuff. >> five people fell straight from the top, 20 feet. >> you know what's worse? investigatessors are charging
the ride's operator with assault with a deadly weapon, saying he intentionally tampered with that ride. so what happens next? let's talk to fox news legal analyst, peter johnson, jr. >> good morning on this monday. what happens next is they're looking at other people as well. allegedly involved with the tampering of the ride. we don't know the details. we know that on the monday before, there was a problem that was allegedly fixed. we also know that there are questions across america about how rides like this are actually maintained. who is responsible? the state or the federal government? in north carolina, the state was responsible. they examine it before the ride begins and then at the end of the ten-day period. three times a day, the ride owner is supposed to do a self inspection on that ride. but there is a patchwork quilt of state laws across america that regulates this. >> my question is -- we don't know the nature of whatever the problem was earlier. but just the suggestion that
something has been tampered with, they must have seen something. >> it's horrifying. if you look at the vortex ride, the cup goes up in the air and goes upside down. according to reports, people fell 20 to 30 feet to the ground, struck their head, were unconscious on the ground as a result of that. we know that in carnival rides, these rides generally, there is a one in 750 million chance of dying. one in 24 million chance of being seriously injured. about 900 injuries last year that required hospitalizations at rides like this in america. but there are billions of people, there are billions of rides that are taken on these amusement rides. >> so should we feel that they are safe? if the state looks at it at the beginning, at the conclusion, they check it three times a day, you would think that would be enough? but you can never -- if somebody is going to tamper with something, that's crazy. >> what's disturbing is we understand negligence. we understand that human beings can't be perfect, that they can try and do a great job and sometimes they don't. but the notion that somehow --
we don't have all the details yet -- that someone acted in an intentional way to disable a safety feature, to act in a way that could cause people harm and death on this ride where people are relying on the thrill, but in the end, walking out after a minute ride to return to their families, that is absolutely incredible. they will look hard at this. hopefully it opens the issue again of whether there should be federal oversight of these types of rides. there is now, but they have very few people actually doing it. >> all interesting stuff. very disturbing story. thank you very much. >> good to see you. >> good to see you. straight ahead, six decades ago, a world war ii pilot was shot down by the japanese. today a 15-year-old boy claims that's him. the story of reincarnation that you've got to hear. that boy and his parents join us live next hour. first on this day in 1983, "islands in the stream" by kenny rogers who was just inducted

open it to the public today. it is not all the way there. there is still a lot of work to be done because workers here, before this storm, had taken all of the artifacts, a lot of photographs and moved it to higher ground. right after the storm, when everything was flooded, they removed it all to storage warehouses. that stuff has not been brought back because right now, ellis island is still running on interim power and heat. so still about six to eight months out from ellis island being totally back to normal. back to you. >> stacy, live. how can does it take to get the juice back? it's crazy, it's been a year. >> i agree with you. coming up, six decades ago, a world war ii pilot was shot down by the japanese. today a 15-year-old boy says he was that pilot. the story of reincarnation you have to hear. that boy and his parents join us live. do you still need a

this weekend, saturday she's bragging about how well the system with obamacare is working. sunday it shuts down across 50 states, all the information gone. i don't know where. what kind of answers are we really going to get on wednesday, do you think? >> i mean, that's a great question. i think it will clearly be pointed on both sides of the aisle. you saw a few of these lawmakers, democrats had some of the most pointed questions up on capitol hill this past week about the healthcare.gov web site. i think you're going to see a lot of that. when secretary sebelius sits down -- she's been defiant on the road in these different call centers she's gone to. it's interesting that she's pointing to the phones being up and running, but the web site not being up and running. but i think it's going to be really heated and a lot of fireworks come wednesday morning. >> you talk about the town hall she's had across the country. it's been really embarrassing. i was reading i -- i want to say the "wall street journal" or "washington post," that recounted some of her events where she's on a stage and she's
got people in the background going okay, they don't have health care. go ahead and try to sign on. then nothing would work. you know what? we're working the kinks out of this. you know, do you think we're hitting a critical mass in washington, d.c. where eventually somebody's head will have to roll and it will be hers? >> i mean, it's possible, but i tell you, steve, i don't think that the administration is going down that road, just because one, they don't want the nomination confirmation process. going through a confirmation in the senate side during this would be brutal for the administration. i think they're going to try to get through the tough stuff here. they claim -- the white house claims that they can get the web site up and running by the end of november. you talk to tech experts, they say that's really optimistic to believe that the 500 million lines of code are going to be ironed out by then. >> you got to wonder, who is
telling them to put themselves under a hard deadline again, because they're going to look like they have egg on their faces. now, i want to bring you to one of the other shows besides fox news sunday. on "meet the press," he had governor brashear on, supposedly telling the good news story of obamacare in certain states. listen to where this went. >> 12:01 a.m. on october 1 when our exchange opened up to enrollment, kentuckians started swarming all over our exchange, all over our toll free lines, and in about four weeks, we've had over 300,000 kentuckians trying to find out and finding out about affordable health care. we've signed up over 26,000 people. >> mostly medicaid, though. so it's not the young and healthy people getting the insurance plans that are really necessary to make this system work. >> 26,000, 21,000 are in medicaid. 5,000 are in qualified health plans, but we've got another
10,000 going on to the plans that are in the process of choosing. >> yeah, they're thinking about it. so it's mostly medicaid. >> yeah. that's a big problem. if those numbers translate across the country because as you know, they need to sign up, according to the administration, 7 million people by march. of that, it has to be the right mix of young healthy people to older people and people who would use insurance a lot. people who are sick or have preexisting conditions in order for the equation to work out, it needs to be the right balance. if that balance is the balance across the country, you have much bigger problems than just a web site. >> ninety-five dollars fines is what a lot of young people will take in order to avoid prison time or whatever the ramification is. >> it's $95 or 1% of their adjusted income. >> and that's this year and then it goes up. let's talk about something else. the white house coming under fire about spying on world leaders and our friends. a new report is saying possibly that president obama knew of the nsa spying on merkel, germany.
what do you make of this and is this something to be embarrassed about or not? >> that nsa story that he knew was in germany, "wall street journal" has a story out from senior officials anonymously saying he didn't know, that president obama did not know for five years that they had this program to spy on world leaders. so either way, it's not good. either the defense is that he was kept out of the loop, has been the defense this white house has used, or the spying on 35 world leaders, it's just not good public relations wise. that said, listen, every country spies and while it's a tough thing to sell to the american public and to the public overall, it does happen. >> it does. but what's disturbing is apparently -- and according to the nsa people who talked to the white house, a lot of people don't trust the nsa these days anyway because they spy on all of us. just the fact that the
president, while he was president, this program was running for coming up on five years where they were spying on world leaders and apparently -- according to the "wall street journal" item -- apparently there are people below the president who decide who to spy on. so it's somebody else way down here on the food chain deciding, you know what? merkel. let's go after her. let's go after tony blair or whomever in the last five years. >> i mean, it's easy to pick at every administration has done some of this. so it's important to point out. but it's public relations wise, diplomacy wise, it's really awkward. and this all stems from edward snowden and all of these documents. there is another one out this morning that suggests that the u.s. was listening into some 60 million calls in spain over a year. so you have real problems diplomatically from this. >> it's unbelievable, too. like the peter king method of embracing it. it's called a hamburg cell, we
need to embrace it and listening in. >> listen to them, don't listen to us. >> he said stop apologizing for this. >> have a great program, bret baier's program runs at 6:00 o'clock eastern time right here on the fox news channel. we're all big fans of that. >> have a good day. >> now for the rest of headline, we'll go to heather nauert. >> good morning to you. it looks like such a beautiful day in washington, d.c michael jackson's former doctor walking free. conrad murray was released from an l.a. county jail at midnight. this video shows him driving away inside of a cop car. murray served just two years of his four-year prison sentence for giving jackson a deadly dose of propothol. what's raising eyebrows, murray says he's planning to try to get his medical license back in the state of nevada. chris brown wake up in a jail cell once again. this time police say he attacked
a man outside of a hotel in washington, d.c the 24-year-old is still on probation for beating up his girlfriend, rihanna, back in 2009. if he's found in violation of his probation agreement, he could face four years behind bars. he's set to face a judge in 30 minutes on felony assault charges. we'll hear more about that throughout the day. four inmates on the run this morning. they pulled a dirty trick at an oklahoma jail and this sounds like it's something right out of a movie. authorities say they pried open some sort of latch above a shower. they then apparently climbed onto a crawl space and then crawled 30 feet before they escaped through a door. listen to this. >> this time -- all they had to do was push the door and walk out because it's not in the jail. >> if it's that easy, they need to revamp. >> yeah. there were apparently some trap doors above the showers. they were supposed to be welded shut last week, but obviously that didn't happen. the workers missed them.
four orange jump suits were found outside that jail. so be on the lookout for these guys. also this morning, we're remembering rock'n'roll legend lou reed. ♪ take a walk on the wild side. ♪ >> best known for that solo hit "walk on the wild side." he was born in brooklyn, new york. a lot of musicians are remembering him this morning. steven tyler tweeted, you're a great friend. from maxes to the masses, you made the world sing. i love you, lou. lenny kravitz writes, rest in peace on the wild side. he suffered complications from a liver transplant. he was 71 years old. see new just a bit. thank you very much. straight ahead, nearly 50 years after his assassination, some

years. people don't want to previous it was just lee harvey oswald in that book depository. >> right. november 3, that will be on, right? that's at 10:00 o'clock. also you look at cooper's mysterious disappearance. we have questions. you have answers. >> we're looking at all these various mysteries. the only unsolved american hijacker. we look at the escape from alcatraz in 1962. >> what do you try to recreate from alcatraz? >> we're looking at that night. in 1962 when frank morris and the anglen brothers escaped from the place you couldn't get away from. they used a home made raft made out of prison rain coats, went into the water and that was the last we ever heard of them. did they escape or not? and they would have been trying to get over to angel island, maybe two miles away. we were in the water for hours trying to paddle across the bay. it's a tough slog, i'll tell you that. but every episode, every story, again, it starts november 3, 10:00 p.m., this sunday.
every story, we're out someplace taking the viewers some where that they normally are not going to see. >> as your agenters which i might be, get a body double. this is going to kill you by the end if you keep doing this stuff. mike baker we'll watch you sunday night at "america declassified" now on the travel channel. congratulations, looks great. >> thank you. >> look how cool you get o dress. >> it's my travel channel coat. >> that's fantastic. thank you. coming up, heart stopping video. a man fires directly into a trooper's car. that trooper puts himself in the line of fire on purpose. wait until you hear why. and six decades after a world war ii pilot was shot, a 15-year-old claims he was that pilot. the boy and his parents are next with this story of reincarnation. you got to hear it good job!

>> it all started when their son woke up from a bad dream and began recounting stories of a fallen world war ii pilot. his mother and father never told him those stories. in fact, they think he may have experienced them in a past life. they have shared their son james' story all over the world in hopes of shedding light on what we do not know about the after life. the book gained so much popularity, it's been translated to ten different languages. joining me now are andrea, bruce and james. thank you all for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> certainly we've been sort of hinting at this story all day and it gives everyone pause because it seems almost impossible. can you go through and tell us about james' story? he was two when he started having these dreams? >> right. and what happened? >> after his second birthday and he started having horrific night terrors, remembering he was in a plane that got shot down and crashed in the water. he couldn't get out of the plane. and the behaviors that he had when he was having the
nightmares were mimicked, somebody who was trying to get out of something. like he was trapped in a box trying to kick the lid off. >> it seemed very real. bruce, when you heard this, did you think anything of it? certainly two-year-olds have nightmares, right? >> it was disturbing because it was four, five, six times a week. it just wasn't incidental night terror that children experience. >> there were drawings, too, james, that you would make that sort of indicated historic truths. correct? we have some images of those that we can put up. but it was how you would sign them, right, that would give everyone a little bit more information. >> that was one of our first clues. he started doing the drawings and it was almost a pathological process. he would put the planes and the ships in and then almost be acting out a battle. he would be shooting and firing. and started signing the drawings james 3. it was right when he was three years old, he couldn't even sign his name. audient know how to write his name, which i think people don't realize when you're three, you don't know how to write your name yet.
>> exactly. >> but he isn't a third james. my husband's name is bruce. we kept asking him, how come you're signing your name james 3. he said, i'm the third james. >> what made your parents start researching james, what that really meant historically? you said the name of another pilot. correct? >> i said the names of many pilots, bob greenwald, jack larson. i stated all these names of people that if only you had been on the ship or you had been able to look at military records or you knew them personally, through a family or just friendships, you would know that person or their life. two, three, four, very young ages just talking about them. >> at two he knew the name of the ship. my husband had asked him at the railroaded where his plane took off from and he said from a boat. and he asked if he remembered the name of the boat and he said
natoma, which is a bizarre word to come up when you're two. >> how do you make the jump from saying, okay, this is some information in my two-year-old or three-year-old's mind to he actually is re incarnated, this person is reincarnated in my son. how did you get to that point? >> he did three things very quickly. he gave us the name of the ship. he then gave us the name of a man he flew with jailed jack larson, and then he gave us a location where his plane was shot done. what i found out by contacting a veterans organization, never expecting to confirm this name jack larson, i asked a guy named leo, do you remember jack larson, he said oh, yeah, he flew off one day and we never saw him. it had led me to believe that's who was killed. >> james, you're young when this started.
it seems like an awful lot of responsibility for a toddler to have, be carrying of the life of a world war ii veteran. if you can even just give us a brief games into what that's life and where are you now? do you still feel the way that you might have felt at three where you're having these visions and occurrences come to you? >> i don't have the nightmares anymore. they passed after we went and reconciled the whole problem with james houston. i got to say good-bye. i guess i kind of made that spiritual, just release from james houston. so i don't have the nightmares anymore. but a lot of people ask, well, how can something like this, you know, happen? how would you just know these things? and so i kind of give the well, what you want to be when you grow up? some people say, i want to be a doctor. i say, is there anything anybody
can say, change how you feel about oh, i want to be a doctor, some people just have this innate knowledge from birth, but i know a lot about weaponry. i know a lot about the military and it's just -- i don't know where it comes from. some people just know a lot about specific subject. but where does it come from? >> maybe it comes from the exact place you describe. >> exactly. >> do you feel that you can live your own life or do you feel like you can not separate the two? >> oh, i live my own life every day. i think about james houston sometimes. i recollect on just -- i just think about him sometimes. but it's not -- i can just live my own life freely. >> good. james, thanks for being here. >> thank you. >> bruce and andrea, thanks for sharing your story. others may have similar incidents as well and we will have everybody facebook us if you have something you want to share with james. coming up, what would you do if

and i did. i hardly ever carry cash in my wallet. i think it's disgusting and i don't want it like fondling my wallet. but when i walked up there and i saw his total was 27 something, i opened my wallet and i had $28 in there and i just thought, oh, my gosh. this is totally god at work. this had nothing to do with me. it was jesus. >> wow. can you imagine, there you are, the victim of a crime and you turn around and you help that person out? >> sure. she has four kids under the age of eight. she saw a little of her in that man and then forgives him first. we asked you guys what you thought. sheryl said, all i can say is bless her. i would have tossed his butt in jail. >> lynn says, random acts of kindness, if there were more people like that in the world, it would be a better place and gets the salute. >> bob says, it was a nice thing to do, but she is in a way an
enabler because he is free to go and do it again elsewhere. but by the same token, maybe he saw her kindness and he would not do it again. >> sure. that certainly happens often. you feel forgiveness and you change. >> anyway. great story and great reaction. thank you very much. in the meantime, we'll head right over to that gal right there who has our headlines. >> then we all hear about the story and inspires so many other people to do good things as well. i got some headlines. 911 calls just released from the terrifying moments that five people were thrown from a ride at the north carolina state fair. listen to this. >> we're at the state fair and the ride turned upside down and dumped everybody out. >> there is people who are bleeding really bad, like their heads and stuff. >> the ride broke across and people fell from the sky. >> the ride operator will face a judge later today. he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. investigators say that the ride was tampered with and that
safety devices were compromised. more arrests are expected. we'll keep watching this one. and is this a mysterious floating barge actually a secret google facility? experts say the giant shipping containers in california could be home to the tech joint's next marketing push for google glass or some say it's a data center. if this becomes a store, it's believed once it's complete, the barge will pull up to shore and then be open to the public. one big problem is that folks close to the local government there say that google hasn't gotten the proper permits. interesting to talk about this. and incredible video out of pennsylvania. a state trooper there displaying unbelievable bravery. timothy is captured on dash cam video putting his own life on the line in order to save a fellow officer. look at this right here. he's racing to catch up with a suspect who had just killed three people. he then rams his cop car into

for the first time a whistle blower who warned our government about the terrorist attack in benghazi is breaking his silence. he claims the u.s. government did not take the threat seriously. >> the people that go out onto the edge to represent our country, we believe that if we get in trouble, they're coming to get us. our back is covered. to hear that it's not, it's a terrible, terrible experience. >> indeed. four americans of course died that night. aren't their families entitled to some answers because so far we have haven't gotten many? joining us from south carolina is senator lindsey graham, member of the senate arms services committee. senator, it's interesting, in that particular report on "60 minutes" last night, greg hicks, who was a deputy there in libya at the time that the ambassador was killed, he was talking about at one point how he was in the
process of making his third request for additional security. but nothing ever happened with that. what can you tell us about that? >> i know that greg had a very specific request for security upgrades in tripoli, not benghazi, because of a well-known terrorist in the area and his request was spiked. not allowed to go up to washington. there had been four to five additional security requests for benghazi in tripoli that were denied by personnel in washington, d.c but we need to know why his request was never allowed to go to washington and we need to know the person who said he couldn't send it. that's classified. it shouldn't be classified. much of the information about benghazi is classified. i think for political reasons more than anything else. >> sure. also last night we learned that three months before an official had told ambassador stevens, one of the guys on the ground, you're going to be attacked.
somebody else said -- there is the ambassador who died, our first ambassador killed overseas we also heard one guy say, look, i said this is going to follow al-qaeda's pattern. we've already heard they're going -- they prised they would hit the red cross, which they did. they promised they would hit the united kingdom, which they did. they promised they would hit the united states. you're next! and somebody told washington a number of times and nothing. those people died. >> why was chris stevens going to benghazi in light of all this information? how could someone in washington give it the level of threat being reported continuously by chris himself not approve additional security request? how did the consulate become a death trap? now we know this was a result of a preplanned al-qaeda attack with some very high level operatives involved in leading the attack. it was never a protest as a result of a video gone bad. the four americans were murdered
by al-qaeda and inn a preplanned coordinated terrorist attack and how could the administration for two weeks or longer tell us that was not so? >> i think it's great that mainstream media finally catching up. cbs did this story on benghazi. i see criticism from the left where they go, you guys are covering a phony scandal. "60 minutes" doesn't cover phony scandals. here is what i thought was a glaring omission and that was in the entire 15-minute story, not one word about hillary clinton. >> i think the story was about the fact that our folks died in a different way than explained by the administration. they died as a result of an al-qaeda planned attack that you could see coming. they talked about security requests being denied. that leads to what to do next. if we don't have a joint select committee to get out of this stove piping problem, we're never going to get the truth.
the congress should form a committee, the state department is blaming the c.i.a. the c.i.a. is blaming the state department. where was the department of defense? so i am calling for a joint select committee. but for god's sakes, let the house have a select committee where you get three or four committees together to look at this situation as one unit rather than stove piping. and where are the survivors? 14 months later, steve, the survivors, the people who survived the attack in benghazi, have not been made available to the u.s. congress for oversite purposes. i'm going to block every appointment in the united states senate until the survivors are being made available to the congress. i'm tired of hearing from people on tv and reading about stuff in books. we need to get to the bottom of this and to my house colleagues, darrell issa has done great job. to speaker boehner, form a joint committee to get away from this blame game and find out exactly what happened and where was hillary clinton during all these multiple requests for security? you could see this attack a long
time in the making, according to the people on the ground in libya. why couldn't you see it in washington? who the hell told susan rice this story about a protest gone bad and who told the president there was no evidence of a preplanned terrorist attack in light of all this information? we're just beginning on benghazi. to the families, we're not going to let this go. congress needs to up its game. >> so many questions, easy answers. we just need to get to the bottom of it and sounds like you're going to. thank you very much today for joining us from south carolina. thank you. >> thank you. it is now 11 minutes before the top of the hour. next up, still need a halloween costume? keep the costs down with some great do it yourself ideas. those kids so cute, all home made costumes. meanwhile, bill hemmer, who -- he actually turns off his light on the door, halloween night so the kids go elsewhere. he joins us right now. >> yeah.
