"fox & friends" starts right now. good morning. today is tuesday, april 15. democrat harry reid says the big battle at the nevada ranch isn't over. this fight is about animals -- or is it? we think it's about freedom. what do you think? the ranchers aren't ready to give it up. you will hear both side this is hour. >> that's a cattle battle. eric holder under fire for inciting racial tensions with these comments. >> what attorney general has had to deal with that kind of treatment?

3:01 am
>> what was he talking about? this morning he says we all misunderstood him. really? we'll report. you will decide. >> want to avoid arguments like this? >> you're saying i'm upset because i don't have a strong desire to do dishes. >> no, because you don't have a strong desire to offer to do the dishes. >> steve shaking his head. >> doctors figured out the reason it happens. there is an easy fix. it's called do the dishes, vince vaughn. mornings are better with friends, i think. >> announcer: it's time for "fox & friends." good morning, ron. that's ron, a cpa in our
3:02 am
green room. today is tax day. it's april 15. taxes are due at midnight unless you have an extension. ron is at the computer to take your questions. he will try to answer them. e-mail us. >> all through the show he'll help you. if you have a question, send him our way. >> every year steve and i bring in our taxes and expose everything to the show. did you bring yours in? we could hack into your system and find out what your taxes say. >> i brought my device. >> we'll get the elisabeth hassle back refund? >> on twitter. you can check it out. >> we have talked about how there were more than 400 tax increases on barack obama's watch proposals. he didn't get them through. >> if you have questions about taxes this year, go ahead. ronald is standing by to take
3:03 am
them. >> questions being raised. the cattle battles has been brought to a fiery front. harry reid yesterday was standard asked about it. he was silent until this point. this is about land and freedom. he said, look, this cattle battle is far from over. take a listen. >> he said it's not over. we can't have an american people that violate the law and walk away. it's not over. >> you sound just like harry reid, steve. >> thank you very much. >> we saw languishing, have to nod off in the middle of the sentence to be harry reid. >> he says it's not over. a member of bun di's family said we are not afraid of harry reid. he needs to be kicked out of office. the feds had taken 600 cattle which they said they returned. they only returned over 260 head. >> hundred plus. during a tile when profit is important for farmers and in terms of cattle. what their value is. >> what harry reid said is putting everything back. we thought we were seeing an end
3:04 am
to the stand-off. the ranchers feel like they won and the eights to own the land is over. they will deal with it on possibly a state level with more level heads. then harry reid says that. with the power in the senate and the power in 9/11 that it isn't over. >> is this about the bureau of land management, cattle. is it about the tortoise? there are many that say this is about freedom. they spoke out yesterday and said this is something that has to do with protecting the integrity of the land and freedom of the people. there was a documentary film maker dennis michael lynch who faced down armed officers himself. he said they are willing to die over this. >> i'm a new yorker. you're not going to b.s. me. when i went down there, before i put myself in harm's way i had to understand who the bun dis were. if they were shysters i was going to stand back.
3:05 am
they were willing to die. i heard it in their voices. i saw it in their eyes. that's when i really got nervous. you have americans against americans. this is becoming a trend. that's why we are standing there and they are making a prayer before they go into battle. >> the bundys are all in. we have told you on the channel about how they have been ranching this land since the 1880s. they were induced -- the family was induced to go to 9/11 banevk in the day by the federal government wo promised to go out the to the territories to graze your cattle for free as long as you want to. mr. bundy, he says he doesn't recognize the federal government as the land owner. he says we ran this land ever since it was a territory. he recognizes state rights, not the federal government's rights. the federal government owns 80% of nevada.
3:06 am
>> certainly on tax day the expectation is you pay the taxes. but the heaviy handedness is rallying people and getting their voices loud and proud when it comes to freedom. >> on a separate note. last week we brought you the fiery interchange with the with attorney general, holder and congressman gomer. we talked to the congressman, played it back and after the interaction which these two got personal. it looked personal. but no one would admit it. he spoke at al sharpton's event commemorating the civil rights law whiches passed in 1964. he said this. i concluded he was referring to ace in america as it relateses to the attorney general and the president. you make the call. >> forget about me. you look at the way the attorney general of the united states was treated yesterday by a house committee. had nothing to do with mement what attorney general has had to
3:07 am
deal with that kind of treatment? [ applause ] >> what presidents has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? >> so there he was at the national action league here in new york city last week. a predom the nantly african-american crowd. some say, okay, we had bill o'reilly on the next day. he said he may have been playing to the crowd. now mr. eric holder says, i wasn't playing the race card. i was talking about the lack of civility in washington, d.c. back in the old days people were much more civil. now they are not. >> the back room are deals that lbj made democrats and republicans do that were unsavory. things we saw in "lincoln"? it was almost blackmail. >> or the civility paid to ashcroft, janet reno, meese, john mitchell. look at those in the position eric holders has held and the resistance or criticism they
3:08 am
faced for different reasons. some may say this is not about race. this is about the lack of providing documents, the fast and furious issue and why the truths has not been given to the american people. >> if congress will have oversight and you ask the executive branch to provide documents and they never come, that's a big problem. >> i think this is about ginning up the base of the party. not getting ratted out of the house again. having them be more over ruled than before. here is dr. ben carson and reverend faulkner. >> i think it is one of the oldest tricks in politics. if you don't like the story, divert attention away from it. the democrats are simply trying to rally your base. using the race card. we don't need more division in our country. race is a very touchy subject for all of us. we may disagree.
3:09 am
it's ideas that win the day or lose the day. >> you can't oppose anything that a progressive black person is doing if you're white waus being calling a racist. you can't oppose abortion without being called anti-woman. you cani think the solution is the people to be much manufacture sophisticated in their analysis and not accept what the manipulators are trying to pull over. >> you can't be a low information voter. you have to know what's going on this the world. when you see a 30-second ad where they say there is a war on women and that's all you know. if you know you have education. >> the democratic leader is in charge of getting democrats in the house. he say it is gop base is animated by racism. really? >> racist elements.
3:10 am
>> racist elements. i have racism. hes also said this is what he's pushing. if eric holder happened to make the comments on a wednesday and steve israel is making the comments on a sunday it seems interesting the timing. >> is there a closed argument? if you're making a speech they exist in a broader audience. we have a president who promised to unite, not divide when it comes to uniqueness in terms of belief, ethnicity, gender. some would argue it's gotten worse under this administration. i think that's disheartening for the american people who would rather have a real discussion. the discussion on race makes people defend it when it's not there. when it is there, nobody is there to look and call it out. >> well put. >> thanks for joining us on this -- let's see, tuesday. you weren't here monday. >> it's tuesday. >> take out the calculator. >> it's tax day. that's why she's wearing green. >> speaking to a woman who
3:11 am
doesn't pay her taxes. >> right. >> you can look at tax day as being in the red with heather or symbolizing money with the green. >> it is a busy news day. we'll talk in the break. good morning to you all. investigators are trying to figure out how two registered sex offenders wearing ankle bracelets ended up arrested for four murders. 27-year-old frank tano and steve gordon head to court later today. 21-year-old geray is tap's body was found in the fall. other women were missing. there may be more victims but the guys may have killed the women while wearing ankle bracelets and that's how they were tracked down. today the former ku klux klan leader accused of killing people in kansas at a jewish center will be heading to court. frasier glen cross could get the

3:17 am
internet free and open and uninterrupted. >> once we surrender our unique position it will be impossible to take it back if something goes awry. >> it's important for free speech and it is important for the continueded freedom of the internet. >> after weeks of criticism, republican lawmakers, democrats and bill clinton, the obama administration is finally backing off a plan to give up u.s. control of the internet which al gore invented. why did the white house let it get this close? is it just pushing the move down the road? joining us now is former fcc commissioner under presidents bush and obama robert macdowell. you cautioned me that we are not exactly deciding yet not to do this globalizing the internet. >> exactly. the administration actually hasn't backed off their plan. there's been talk about timing. but they have not backed off. i was at the event where there is dispute whether or not they were backing off. i don't think they have backed
3:18 am
off at all. >> assuming they went ahead with what they were insinuating at the event you were at, they are putting it off at least two years but we are not out of the woods. >> a lot can happen over the coming years. the idea is there is a last tether from the department of commerce to an outfit called i can which runs the web addresses, dot comes and do dot orgs. i'm generally in favor of oh privatization. is there a way for other governments to grab that tether. that's the big question now. what guarantees can be put in place? i'm not sure there are any. >> guys that do it for a living like you say i think america is over reacting sometimes by saying we'll give iran, russia and china access to what created. do you believe if we had given this up and in fact, stopped
3:19 am
that that it would have given china, russia, iran more power? >> absolutely. for well over a decade russia, china, saudi arabia and iran have been looking for ways to absorb more of the internet's functions into these international internet -- intergovernmental bodies. so they are hell bent on doing that. vladimir putin said in summer of 2011 he wants international control of the internet through the international telecommunication union. i think he's serious. your lead-in about what the ukraine and crimea and the internet have in common which is vladimir putin wants to all of them. it's something i said a few weeks ago that's absolutely true. they were relentsless, patient and persistent incrementalists and won't stop until they get this way. looking at the plan is interesting but there is risk. >> we'll have you on when it becomes a deaf it in. we hear you, america. we have reformed our ways for

3:23 am
quick headlines now. making news around the world we'll start with the fox news alert. the bluefin submarine going back
3:24 am
into the ocean in search of the malaysian jet. yesterday it was pulled back after six hours. it reached its halifax multiple depth short of the ocean body. next, speaker of the house john boehner making a trip to afghanistan leading them to check out the historical election which went well. temperatureses rising between russia and the united states after a fiegtder jet buzzed a navy warship. the yet making 12 low level passes by the ship in just 90 minutes. that's provocative. >> maybe they were being friendly, waving. want to avoid an argument like this? >> are you still upset because i don't have a strong desire to clean dishes? >> i'm upset because you don't have a desire to offer to do the dishes. >> if you're acting crazy or your wife or husband is check their blood sugar. in a new study husbands and wives got so angry when they were hungry they stuck pins in their spouse's voo do dolls.
3:25 am
>> it made them feel better. it's called hangry and dr. brad bushman joins us. professor of communication and psychology at ohio state. explain why being hangry matters. >> aggression often starts when self-control stops. the part of the brain behind our forehead is called the prefrontal cortex of the brain. it's in charge of regulating emotion including anger and although the brain is only about 2% of the body weight it consumes about 20% of the calories. to regulate anger the brain need as lot of fuel. we get fuel from the food we eat. >> sure. you come up with a word hang ary -- hungry and angry --. even spouses with good relationships occasionally get the low blood sugar and they lash out at each other.
3:26 am
>> right. >> taerkt. we controlled for the quality of the couple's relationship. >> are you saying we should argue over or discuss issues over cook i didn't say and chips and make sure we're not hungry when we have talks? >> we shouldn't discuss it over an empty stomach. the problem with sugary foods is they increase your glucose rapidly. then you get a quick decline. it's better to eat, like, vejys, whole grains or proteins which take longer but keep your glucose higher. >> okay. so you have suggestions. first of all, make sure you are not hungry. avoid tough topics on an empty stomach. eat carbohydrates or sugary foods. that's the prescription to a long, healthy relationship. explain the voodoo dolls. how you would measure somebody's anger using a voodoo doll. >> we did this study for 21
3:27 am
days. every morning each partner would measure their blood glucose before they ate breakfast and at night before they went to bed. we told each person independently to stab into the doll that represented their partner the number of pins according to how angry they were with their partner that day. so it takes effort to stab pins in the doll. it's quantitative measure rather than just asking people how angry you are with your spouse. we have a quantitative measure of how angry they are with their spouse. this is a standardized procedure. my colleagues developed. >> a big lesson to everybody. bring snacks for your spouse and yourself for a big talk. dr. bushman, thank you for that. >> my pleasure. >> steve keeps stabbing the doll. he must be hungry. >> is this your kidney, elisabeth? >> ow!
3:28 am

but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers.

don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion. was a truly amazing day.ey, visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. without angie's list, i don't know if we could have found all the services we needed for our riley. for over 18 years we've helped people take care of the things that matter most. join today at ♪ fueling the american spirit. ♪ can you hear it?

whose father died in 1960. got some social security money for the family. they were trying to claw it back. >> right. while it might be legally collectible, the worst part is they couldn't prove it was owed. that was the big issue. >> that was the big issue. now they have switched things around. thank goodness. it is tax day. what bothers you most? fox news poll says the way the government spends our taxes. 14% say too many don't have to pay. the top one is really -- you know, if you have to pay you write the check and think, you know, it would be one thing if the government spent the money wisely, but they don't. >> that's true. it's the price we supposedly have to pay to live in this democracy. but it does get annoying when we pay our fair share of taxes and see it going to waste system how much went to solyndra? ron will answer your tax questions all day long. we're getting a lot of e-mail in

welcome back. the ranch stand-off is far from over and this morning we're finally hearing the agents on the ground. >> we don't want to create a
3:54 am
flash point for conflict. we're all about free speech. that's the same constitution. the very amendment you speak of, we defend. so we understand free speech. we get it. but people hold rocks above their heads. >> the blm agents, we are here with judge andrew napolitano. we have some questions here. blm agents. bass guys? >> i don't know who the bad guys are. i don't know if it's the actual young troops on the ground. it's probably their civilian superiors. a couple problems here. the blm is not a military or law enforcement entity. i was shocked to see they on have troops dressed in camouflage and with m 16s. it looked like they were fighting a war rather than against a foreign invadeer rather than enforce ago judgment against an american. in this case, a patriotic heroic american. they are not defending the first amendment. they may think they are, but when they say here is a free
3:55 am
speech zone and they literally cordon off 25 square yards and say if you want to criticize us, you have to get inside that tape. if you're outside the tape, we're gog arrest you. and by the way that, 25 square yards is three miles from where we're having the confrontation with this rancher. that is prohibited by the first amendment. the first amendment presumes that you can say anything you want about the government and if the government makes it impossible for the government to hear what you're saying by putting you three miles away, then they have interfered with your first amendment rights. this whole thing is done so inappropriately. i happen to believe that this land belongs to the rancher. but the courts have disagreed with me and decided it doesn't. >> right. >> and the courts decided because he grazed on this government land, he owes the government money. but when you owe the government money, they don't come with guns and troops and don't threaten the media that are there to cover it. you file document in the courthouse and it's a judgment
3:56 am
on the property. and then when the property passes by inheritance or when you sell it, one of which must eventually happen, the government will get its money plus interest. the draconian, authoritarian way they're going after mr. bundy is obviously to scare him and scare ranchers and send a message that is utterly unamerican and not in line with the free people. >> are they trying o scare his family? it seems they are willing to die. >> oh, they would love to. they've been there 150 years. they would love to scare his family away. i don't think they'll succeed. >> thank you for being us. >> heat up down there. >> yes. coming up, the top democrat investigating the irs scandal finds himself at the center of the targeting allegations. was he leading the charge against conservatives in the first place? and then no shirt, no shoes, no service. right? we heard that. but what about no pants? this story is coming up top of

4:01 am
misunderstood. really? we report. you decide. okay. you heard of no shirt, no shoes, no service. right? but what about no pants? >> you didn't write it. he's got his shirt on. high socks. >> you're watching "fox & friends." it's tax day. >> this is bret michaels. i have not been to bed yet. you're hanging with me on "fox & friends". i just had a chance to talk to bret michaels in the hall, which is odd because guests a lot of times after they're on -- >> were you talk being tax day? >> not really. but he said he practices free cologne. >> when he came in, he had a certain perfume about him and he said that's -- >> he created it. it's rose and thorns. >> yeah. >> he'll be sending us over a complimentary bottle.

i think we have to share it with the crew. >> they'll smell nice. >> for tax purposes, that's what we're going to say. we got it and shared it. it's april 15. we've got ron standing by. he's answering your questions in the green room. there he is right there. call him -- >> call him on the internet. >> with any questions you have. >> a lot of people have questions about their taxes. they've seen what happened to the tea party, conservative groups. they're wondering, could i possibly be targeted? will i get audited? there is news out about the top democrat in congress investigating what's gone on at oversight regarding the tea party groups and irs and looks like he may actually have been involved in targeting somebody who never wound up with their tax exempt status. >> think about what happened last week on the 9th, the washington times revealed the dallas irs office was covered with vote for obama stickers. irs office. the hill broke a story revealing lois lerner that tax information
4:03 am
to elijah cummings. the house ways and means committee last week referred lois lerner for criminal charges. none of these stories made it to the sunday shows, which as you know, i watch all of them. >> right. the house oversight committee chairman actually produced e-mails from 2012 that show lois lerner accommodating requests from elijah cumming, who was leading the charge in this investigation, but wants to move on, providing the information about an organization called true to vote. it's a conservative organization that was singled out by the irs and scrutinized. >> so let me get this straight. you just said that guy right there, the top democrat on the house oversight was coordinating with that woman, lois lerner, targeting a texas conservative group called true the vote. >> yeah. >> they were coordinate to go crack down on them. that is so wrong. isn't it? an attorney for true the vote was on the channel last night and has this to say about what
4:04 am
happened to her group. >> the irs came to see its role as somehow the enforcement role of the democratic party and democratic members of congress and the white house and began to carry out these activities to pursue conservative groups because these politicians were demanding it. and yet, all of these people, lois lerner, all of them, they have civil service protection and the only difference between what happened in watergate when richard nixon asked the irs to go after his political enemies was when richard nixon asked, they refused. when these democratic politicians said go do something about these conservative groups because they are challenging us and we don't like what they're saying about us, the irs took it upon itself to do their bidding and to try to silence these groups. >> she's absolutely right. and keep in mind, they started cracking down in the runup before the election so that
4:05 am
these groups on the right, although some left groups were named, they tried to crack them down, tried to keep them from mobilizing and being able to help their candidates in the election. in that regard, the irs was effective in tamping down free speech. >> it matters to the american people if their pom ticks are being -- politics are being scrutinized in terms of tax exempt status. you would think, brian, on the eve of tax day, they would be talking about it. it would be like march madness happening and no one talking about any controversy surrounding it. here we are tax day and still croceates. no -- crickets and no other network talk being it. >> people who don't do this for a living don't know with it. most team don't have time to look into the irs investigation. they think well, i haven't read about that in a while, i guess it's over. it's done. but yet the irs is the one
4:06 am
industry, the one agency that really everybody is involved with. everybody. like it or not, you're involved with. you would think a year and a half ago when this came out this would be resonating regardless -- let's see where the chips fall. the chips fell and no one heard them. that was profound, by the way, what i just said. >> and the irs is even involved in obamacare, which impacts one sixth of our economy. and what do you get on the other channels like you said? they didn't talk about it. fox news sunday talked about the irs scandal, but nobody else did. and when you think about some of the other channels, what are they talking about? they're talking about 20 cones on a bridge that screwed up traffic for a couple of days. >> you mean chris christie thing? >> uh-huh. >> i thought it was the malaysian plane 'cause there is one network, that's all they talk about. >> one is the bridgegate channel and the other is the missing airplane channel. that's if you want to make it that simple -- >> you know with a they all want? heather nauert. >> but we got her.
4:07 am
>> you're on a roll, brian. good morning, guys. today is a tough day for a lot of folks in boston. in a few hours from now, boston will mark one year since the bomb attack that left three people dead and more than 260 injured. church bells will toll in the heart of the city at exactly 2:49 p.m. today. that is the moment that the first bomb exploded near the marathon finish line. this year's race is set for next monday. investigators in california are trying to figure out how two registered sex offenders out on parole and wear ankle bracelets may have murdered at least four women. 27-year-old frank cano and 45-year-old steve gordon will be in court later today on charges of rape and murder. the body of 21-year-old woman was found last fall. you can see her there. three other women went missing
4:08 am
from the anaheim area around the same time. authorities say that gps data from the ankle bracelets that the men were wearing linked them to the crimes. we'll keep watching that story. senator harry reid says the battle with the bundy family over their ranch is far from over. here is what he just said: quote, while it's not overment we can have an american people that violate the law and then just walk away from it, so it's not over. that battle started when the government sent in contract cowboys to round up the family's cattle. they had been grazing on public land for more than a century. >> you don't look at them as real cowboys. real cowboys are honest. they weren't doing an honest thing. >> we'll watch that story for you. and who needs pants? certainly not this lady. police in florida say this woman wanted wine so badly, that she stole it from a supermarket wearing just slippers and no pants. she grabs the wine in the box
4:09 am
and walks right out. she was busted and charged with theft and disorderly conduct. what's the problem with that? i fail to see the problem with that. >> she was if a rush. -- in a rush. we've all been there. >> how do my shoes look? >> thank you very much. >> all right. in the first hour we found out that there was a study done to gauge how angry a spouse was at their spouse that gave them voodoo dolls and figured out how many were stuck in the doll to figure out how angry they were and traced it back to the blood sugar. people who are hungry and angry or hangry need to eat something before they tango with their special loved one. >> right. dr. bushman joined us. this is the reasoning why, he's from ohio state psychology. >> we did this study for 21 consecutive days. every morning each couple, each
4:10 am
partner would measure their blood glucose before they ate breakfast and at night before they went to bed. and before the evening reading, we told each person independently to stab into the doll the represent -- that represented their partner the number of pins, according to how angry they were with their partner that day. >> does it matter where you put the pins? >> it all depends on how angry you are. >> if you're a little angry, you put it here. >> in the arm? >> that hurt. >> this was handed to me with one in the heart. don't get me in trouble. >> greet your spouse when you get home with snacks before you have a big talk. >> do you notice that certain times of the day where your spouse might be more argumentative than others? >> you're speaking generically? >> right. if it happens at night at certain time, do you think maybe the blood sugar could be low or maybe in the morning at a certain time?
4:11 am
>> we have no talk zones. there is no freedom of talking about 4:30 or 4:45 when i'm getting dinner ready. >> think of how many people are dieting. they're not eating and blood sugar is low and so next thing you know, they're arguing. it's not necessarily the person talking. it's their stomach talking. they're hungry and what the doctor said is you have more carbs and never have a big talk on an empty stomach. >> first see how many needles are in you in a daily basis. see how many times you've been stuck. if there is a lot of pins in your puppet, then you know you have to go get a blood test. >> or feed your spouse. >> have a bagel. >> right. have a bagel. >> it's 7:11 in new york city. talk about biting the hand that feeds them, a new report on how much money democrats are taking from the same people they are now attacking. we're talking to the koch brothers. we're talking about them. and report just out, the number of americans on food

4:13 am
4:14 am
4:15 am
you got a scary new report that shows more than 46 million people collected food stamps while 44 million women worked full time in 2012. that means the number of people living on the government dole outnumbered full-time work women what does it mean for the economy? here is stuart varney. a lot of people are caught up in the fact that the stock market turned around and the unemployment is at the 6.7%. but this is a telling number. in what way? >> ma what it tells us is that in the obama era, welfare is
4:16 am
replacing work. there has been an explosion in welfare payments outgoing from the government to individuals. and a decline in work. this is the classic example, you now have -- in 2012, 46 million people getting food stamps. 44 million women working full time. that tells you you're at a tipping point. if you just go back to 1969, it was 2 million on food stamps and 15 million women working full time year round. completely different relationship between welfare and work. >> what role do you think the fact that people are advertising for food stamps and saying hey, there is an option for you here. let's pull you in. they're not advertising for unemployment insurance. >> president obama is buying votes. nancy pelosi said food stamps give you the best bang for the buck. she's wrong financially. she's right politically. vice president biden said we will liberate you from work with obamacare. essentially what he's saying is
4:17 am
we'll pay you not to work. we'll give you free health care and food stamps and all of this stuff. you don't have to work, but you better vote for me. all of these programs are essentially buying votes for the obama team. so far it has worked. but it's bad for the economy. >> it's going to take a politician with courage saying this is the number we're at. we have to get that number down and here is my plan. >> you got to change the relationship between welfare and work and you do that with economic growth. you don't do it necessarily by just cutting welfare, cutting entitlement programs. you'll never get elected if you try that. but if you go for growth, which grows the economy, grows the number of jobs and grows tax revenues coming into washington, then you've gone partway to solving the problem. >> i think you got to sunset the food stamps, don't you? don't you have to say just like unemployment insurance? >> i would say that's a very good idea. >> that's very rare, you've never said it on camera before.
4:18 am
brian, you had a good idea. coming up on your show at 11:00 o'clock you'll expand on it and done expanding at 1? >> that's accurate. yes, 11 to 1. >> welcome to the week. this is my monday. >> thank you very much. two minutes before 20 minutes after the hour. remember the comments eric holder made about him not being treated fairly? well, this morning he says america misunderstood him. we'll explain. try it. and there is only room for one little girl at this dance floor. wait 'til you see what happens when another girl takes her boy. ♪ ♪

4:46 am
the american heritage educational foundation and the author of the textbook "the miracle of america." good morning to you. >> thank you for having me. >> what did you think about bill o'reilly's argument with matt mt lauer? >> i think schools are allowed to teach about religion. there is a need and legal right for them to teach it. >> sure. really -- this is one of the reasons you wrote the textbook, is the bible was in some ways essentially the instruction manual for the country of america. >> it was. they looked to the bible as guidance and building a civil society. the founders really created the first greatest experiment in which people came together to form a new nation, with new ideas. >> let's look at some of the ideas new to america. for instance, the mayflower compact came from where in the bible? >> it came from isiah 33. the pilgrims signed an agreement
4:47 am
to come together and form a civil society and they looked to god as their authority to sanction that agreement. and doing that, they referred to isiah 33, which says god is our judge, law giver and king. >> all right. what about popular sovereignty, where did that come from? >> another idea of popular sovereignty, which was the idea that all humans are equal in standing. so political power resides with all of the people. not just one person. that came from genesis 1 where god created mankind and gave dominion to all people. not just one person. >> how about resistance to tyranny? that's something big these days. >> that emerged during the american revolution and there de over whether it was biblical to go to war with britain. and they centered on romans 13, which describes the role of
4:48 am
government as a minister of good works and a force against evil. it instructed people to submit to authority. >> sure. so for the people trying to scrub god from the public place, get in god we trust off the money, get rid of god and all references to christmas and stuff like that, you look at our history and the bible was what we base so much our country on. >> that's exactly right. our nation was shaped by judeo christian ideas and we can see that in our political philosophy, our culture, and our civic institutions. so we could definitely say that we are a nation influenced by the bible. >> interesting stuff. the new textbook is called "the miracle of america." angela, thank you very much for joining us today from houston. >> yes, i am. and you can find out more at >> thank you very much. straight ahead on this tuesday, new study shows more women are staying home than

welcome back.
4:53 am
the answer to the "fox & friends" trivia question of the day, emma watson. our winner is darren from florida. you'll be getting a copy of brian's new book "george washington's secret six." congrats. well, a new study shows that three out of every ten moms would rather stay home with their kids then spend a day at work. the reason? too hard to find a job. what if you were told you could. cheryl casone is here to explain all of that. >> good morning. got some ideas for all the moms at home that do want to work, but here is the problem, it is amazing to me that 6% of mothers in 2012 said they're staying home not because they want to, they want to go back to work, they can't find a job. what's happening -- and we talked about this in the past -- is that the cost of childcare completely negates going back to work. why would i leave the house if i'm going to lose money? it's going to be a net negative for me to go out and find work. so it's not that they're not
4:54 am
motivated to find work. it's just the economics of this don't make sense. it's a real shame. >> it sure is. but you are offering some solutions where you can have both, make some money at home for moms. you have three companies today? >> yeah. there are some companies now that you can work from home. you do have to kind of report to work. but you can sometimes choose the hours that you want to work. a lot of the call center jobs. there is a company called a rise virtual solutions that i've talked about them before. it's customer care, things like that. you can make from 9 to 30 bucks an hour. they serve like staples, carnival cruise lines, aaa. so you're on the phone. but you're on the phone at your home. now, i want to caution you, you can't be distracted when you're doing these type of jobs. you really got to focus on picking up the phone. that's where the work is. has company called live ops. live ops is customer care and inbound sales, financial services, things like that. but this company has about 1,000
4:55 am
jobs open. ten to 12 bucks an hour. a lot is financial and retail. and then southerland. it's jobs on the phone and you could be a personal concierge. why not? be an assistants. i have a friend that's a mom that's work as a personal assistants during the day. there is all kinds of things you can do. >> right, that offer flexibility and help at home. tips for moms looking for this kind of work? >> here is the thing, especially for those of you that maybe did get that degree and now you're at home. you want to keep up with that network. that's big thing, in my opinion. you got to keep those connection. have lunch with friends you went to college with. keep the e-mails coming. maybe take a class at night. also volunteer work. people say oh, volunteer, i'm at the shelter. no, that's actual work experience you can use on a resume. so all of these things are great
4:56 am
ways to keep engaged. maybe when the kids get bigger and if i can hopefully see wages get better in this country, which i'm not seeing this year, but maybe next year, that will be the reason for these moms to actually go back to work and not have the financial side of it work against them, which is what we're seeing. >> certainly disheartening when we heard the vice president say stay home. that's okay. but when you're looking at reengaging, these are great opportunities and tips to do so. cheryl casone, thank you so much. >> you bet. coming up, harry reid has a brand-new message for the ranchers in vegas. so how far can the government legally go? laura ingraham on that. you better believe it, top of the hour. and country star sarah evans is here. did you know she takes her kids on tour with her and what else you might not know when she stops by the curvy couch. ♪ ♪

5:04 am
battle, cliven bundy, he had a stand-off with the federal government. harry reid just told somebody yesterday the battle between bundy and the feds not over. he said, well, it's not over. we can't have an american people violate the law and then just walk away from it. so it's not over. laura, has the federal government handled this thing the right way? >> well, i think a couple of things are going on here. number one, harry reid is a former -- reid's former aide is head of bureau of land manage. a lot of people question his experience. we don't know how much that relates to this stand-off. but when we keep hearing from the federal government that we can't round up illegal immigrant s and then we see 200 federal agents surrounding a land, you have first amendment zones where they have o stand to say their peace. it looks like a ridiculously disproportionate response.
5:05 am
another thing harry might not be aware of is the u.s. constitution. i think we have to remember that nothing in the u.s. constitution really allows for the federal government to buy up millions of acres of land and use it for whatever purpose they want, whether it's to protect a tortoise or frankly to do anything else. they have the ability to set up ports and military base. but now i think there are a loft western states, especially trying to push back against this land grab by the federal government and they're losing a lot of state revenue. that's the issue that's kind of being lost, i think, in the shuffle of bundy versus the federal government. but it's a larger issue of what's happening to these western states when the federal government just gobbles up all of this land. again, which is not permitted under the u.s. constitution. >> right. three miles away for the freedom of speech zones. what about bailey, bundy's daughter? she said it really boils down to protecting our freedom, sovereignty and honesty. take a listen to this.
5:06 am
>> t cowboys and they come out and do this for a living. they were hired. lots of money. they were paid lots of money to come and do this. we don't look at them as real cowboys. real cowboys are honest and they weren't doing an honest thing. >> laura? >> well, i think -- again, this is a federal court order saying they got to pay these grazing fees and the bundies saying north texas this is nevada territory. we'll pay the fees to nevada, which they tried to do at one point. but that's not -- the court says they owe the money. so they claim and said to me on my radio show they're willing to pay, they just don't want to pay the federal government. so i asked them, is this an act of civil disobedience? it seems like this is what they're doing. if harry reid gets on a horse and saddles up and goes to his own version of the ok coral, we'll see. i don't think he would be talking this way if he were up for reelection in nevada this year. >> we've got a sound bite from
5:07 am
one of the agents on the ground there. this is how things are stacking up in their perspective. >> we don't want to create a flash point for conflict. look, we're all about free speech. that's the same constitution -- the very amendment you speak of, we defend. so we understand free speech. we get it. but people holding rocks above their head to throw at a police officer. >> yep. so that's one of the agents. by the way, we should point out it was the feds that tased one of bundy's sons and started things falling down the stairs. >> right. >> yeah. there is a lot of interesting things going on, right? now our border patrol agents are told to back off when an illegal immigrant throws rocks or other projectiles at them, oftentimes hitting them. they're told not to engage. but now the feds are engaging with some ranchers about some grazing rights and surrounding them with 200 people. i mean, i think to regular folks, this seems like wrong. this doesn't seem like the right type of response. i think harry reid is frankly
5:08 am
perhaps escalating this once again, which i think is really stupid. >> noted the imbalance there of response, which i think is what american people are responding to. >> meanwhile on the political front, it seems the democrats' new strategy instead of saying obamacare is my plan and i want you to vote for me because of it, it seems as though they're going after divide and conquer. let's divide the american people on race now. it seems steve israel is backing up what many people thought was insinuations of race being behind a tax on the attorney general and the president. he is the chair of the dcc. he wants to get more democrats in the house. so nancy pelosi becomes speaker again. he just says just intellectually, it just so happens that when it comes to race, republicans are really -- have a problem. let's listen to nancy pelosi and steve israel try to solve that problem. >> i think race has something to do with the fact they're not bringing up an immigration bill. i've heard them say to the irish, this would be easy. >> certain policies for the right reasons.
5:09 am
>> republican colleagues are racist. >> not all of them, no. of course not. but to a significant extent, the republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. >> to the irish? she's whispering to the irish? if it was only you sneaking through mexico and canada, we would say okay? no italian, by the way. >> i'm polish, so the polish never get mentioned. >> don't try to get in. >> guys, if you have nancy pelosi on your show and i know she doesn't come on frequently -- >> because we're irish. >> if she says something like that, don't you say, can you name some names here? and steve israel, when he says, well, some elements, some people, not all republicans. which republicans who serve with him in the u.s. house of representatives have racist elements in their personality or in their conduct on policy matters? steve israel is represencible in what he said.
5:10 am
nancy pelosi, throw her into the ring. i say this is a race to the bottom. the democrats have failed the black youth in this country with their terrible economic approach. do we call that racist? they turn their heads away from the millions upon millions of black babies slaughtered in the womb over ten years. is that racist? is it racist that they allow inner cities continue to crumbles as families decay across the board in america, especially hard hit is african-american families. it's all about november. this is not about they care about black people. they care about their majority eroding away. that's all this is about. >> i cannot believe that follow-up question is okay, who are these irish people that are whispering to the former speaker? >> yeah. let's know who they are. name names. >> jerry cooney? >> you can't level charges like that without real evidentiary
5:11 am
basis for leveling those charges. they were never called on this. >> if they did have those names, would they be withholding them if they could use them for their benefit? >> bingo, elisabeth. no, they'd be doing campaign commercials. but they're running away from their record and running to familiar territory. it's their security blanket. race. but the new pew survey that just came out, "washington post" wrote about it, the majority of americans do not consider barak obama black. they consider him mixed race, which, of course, is what he is. he's half white and half black. and that's what the majority of americans think and i don't think they're thinking about his race. they're thinking about their income and job. >> i just think of him as president. that's it. it's about the policies. that's it. >> if they were up in the polls, they wouldn't be talking about race. they're just talking about this because they're down in the polls. >> laura, thank you very much. always peppy when she shows up. >> great to see you. >> time for headlines. good morning. we're watching a really creepy

daughters, peter johnson, jr. >> she was thinking she had no common sense and when they put her in handcuffs in the rotterdam police station, she was thinking i made a serious mistake. what's happened now is there are dozens of now nitwitter trolls. a twitter troll is someone that likes to throw a rhetorical or verbal bomb onto the twitter feed and they have put out these three threats adds -- as well. so now american airlines and others will go after all these folks as well. i think they better go after all these folks as well because otherwise there will be an explosion of these idiot tweets on the internet. we've known in the past people made twitter threats against personalities, against the president. they've gone to jail as a result of it. in fact, it's a federal crime -- we haven't talked about that. an act of terrorism transcending national boundaries based on a threat against an american airliner, she could be charged
5:19 am
by the f.b.i. under the federal code here in the united states. so it's a serious matter. >> one of the -- the internet is a beautiful thing. it's fantastic. but at the same time, so many people have fake twitter handles and do stuff that they think they can get away with. i can change my user name and they'll never know that i'm not really sarah or whatever. it is anonymous in a good way, but at the same time, you got to realize you can be held responsible when you do some dumb stuff. >> it's really not anonymous because american airlines, as soon as she tweeted it out said, we know who you are and we're going to report it to the authorities and a inn a short time, even though 20,000 people followed her, she was reported to the police. >> maybe this is a good opportunity for parents across the country to sit down with their children and explain what happened to her and it shouldn't happen to them. >> i think you're right. in the united states, making a terroristic threat is not only a state crime in most states, it's a federal crime. >> even if you're trying to be funny.

you always hear about them. they really work? >> they do. pollen can collect in your nasal passages and you want to flush them out. you can buy them over the counter. they're very affordable. it's a saline solution. you bend overt sink, cover one nose. put it in the nose, allow it toc back and spit it out. there is something called a neti pot and people have variable success with it. it's again like washing it out. for some of us who don't want to go that route, you can take some water, add a teaspoon of salt and you can take something -- this is my baby's nasal aspirate. you take, you do the same thing with that and spit it out. >> you want to make sure you're dealing with clean water. >> absolutely. warm water in general can help? >> yes. and wasabi. >> take, two, three glasses of boiling water, put it in there. then bend over. you bend over it, you take the towel. you put it over your head so you can create a nice, wonderful --

5:33 am
what are you going to be telling us? >> we did an investigative piece that really looks with clear eyes at exactly what we knew about tamerlan tsarnaev. it's essentially focused on the older brother before the attack. we know that the russians alerted the c.i.a. and the f.b.i. on two straight occasions months apart that they were concerned about him. we know the boston police were never alerted to the fact that there was an investigation going on into someone who lived right under their noses. in the hearing, the police commissioner was asked by the chairman of homeland security, were you alerted to the fact that there was an investigation going on? he said no. would you have liked to have heard that information? would that have helped you? yes. >> right. let's hear the c.i.a. officer -- >> he has some thoughts on how it was handled. >> they do the minimum necessary to then be able to say, i didn't find anything, so i'm done. and then in most cases, it goes into a file and probably in most cases turns out there was
5:34 am
nothing there. unfortunately in a certain number of cases, it ounce out it was a completely valid lead and we blew yet another opportunity to stop an attack because we didn't run it to ground. these things can be incredibly frustrating because for every one that turns out to be valid, there are going to be a lot of them that are dry hole. so yes, you'll waste a lot of your time chasing stuff that's not valid. but that's the game. that's how it works. >> here is the thing you also told me is it got to the point where we're put how long a want ad -- putting out a want ad and the f.b.i. still isn't saying check tamerlan tsarnaev. >> when the f.b.i. came out after they got the video of them at the bombing that morning and they had interviewed him 18 months prior, there was a warning to stop him by customs and border patrol going in and out of the country saying if you find this guy, you need to round him up and turn him in immediately. yet when they found the video from that day, they put it out there and says, does anyone know who this guy is? we need the public's help.

[bell tolling] >> that bell ringing ten times in his honor as we learn the cause of his death. the 54-year-old died of heart disease. marijuana might be against the law in maryland, but don't worry about that. new rules could let druggies off the hook. maryland now becoming the 17th state to decriminalize pot. the governor signing a bill that makes possessing less than 10-grams of pot a civil rather than a criminal offense. snickers has been telling us for years and years that we're not ourselves when we're hungry. >> i feel like betty white out there. >> tell them what your girlfriend said. >> eat a snickers. better? >> better. >> there is a brand-new study that reveals snickers is right.
5:41 am
lower levels of blood sugar make married people angrier, or as we call it, hangry, and more likely to lash out aggressively. there was a study done about this and measured the anger with voodoo dolls. the hungrier the people were, the more pins that went in their spouse's doll. so why does low blood sugar make people more ticked off? glucose is fuel for the brain and energy and self-control needed to deal with anger is in part fueled by glucose. those are your headlines. we're got not guilty some comments from people on that one. we can't relate to that at all, right? you don't get angry when you get hangry. never happens to you. >> thank you very much. by the way, earlier during the peter johnson, jr. segment, we put up a graphic that was supposed to be blurred out. it was not. we apologize for that. >> thank you. we still have 19 more minutes. >> coming up parents, you're going to love this. an inflatable car seat. you can carry it around in a
5:42 am
backpack. i could have used that here in new york city. then the irs made big tax changes. gerri willis will reveal it for us and reveal elisabeth's tax.
5:43 am
5:44 am
5:45 am
time for technology news. volvo invented a car seat that deflates. it can be blown up in 40 seconds and weighs about 11 pounds and fits into a backpack. no word yet on when it will hit the market. but that could change travel everywhere. and google buying the tech giants titan aero space. they make solar powered drones capable of staying in the air for five years.
5:46 am
five years without having to land or refuel. google will use the drones to collect images and provide internet access to far away remote areas. interesting. brian, over to you on tax day. >> it's tax day. the irs making big changes to taxes this year. if you haven't filed yet, don't worry about it. only kidding. what you need to know. gerri willis joins us right now. welcome. >> hello. good to see you. >> you're only here on important days. what's new about today? >> we have higher taxes for people who are well to do. so if you are in 200,000 or 250,000 as married filing jointly, watch out. you've already seen medicare payroll taxes go up by almost a percentage point. that's already come out of your earnings. there is a lot of deductions. home office, mortgage, sales tax from states, all of that is being phased out. so the more you make, the less you'll get of that. and finally, investment income
5:47 am
is going to get hammered here. 3.8%. if you have investments that are not inside a 401(k), aren't inside some kind of tax shelter, you're going to pay a lot. if you sold -- this is really hitting people in silicon valley >> this passed and we hadn't thought about it that much. i think this is going to affect behavior when it comes to investment. >> it absolutely will. it will have a chilling effect on people who put money in the market. i think overall, you might see an impact on the economy here from these higher taxes. >> all right. now we want to give people good news. undiscovered deductions. maybe we can help some people write things off. your college loan is interest is up to $2,500. >> mom and dad, if you're putting johnny through college and paying that much in interest on the loan, you can deduct that. if you have a dependent parent and you're paying up to half of their income, you can deduct that. and finally, if you're paying pmi, private mortgage interest,
5:48 am
remember that? you didn't have enough money to put 20% down? you can deduct that, too. if you took out the loan after 2007. >> we're going to get to red flags to this segment. red flags for those people looking to investigate you. home office. why would that be a red flag? >> this is just one of those arenas where people do it wrong and they take more than they should. so the irs is all over this. the rules are different this year. so make sure you do it the right way. if you make a noncash charitable contribution. this is what happens. people give the old family car to the red cross in their hometown and they don't value it right. so they say it's worth more than it is. then you're in trouble. so make sure you don't do that. earned income tax credit, also a big arena for problems. >> good news, irs doesn't have enough irs agents, so there is less of a chance being audited. correct? >> that's right. pay your tax. if you can't pay your taxes, form 4868, that's how you delay paying tax. you got to pay something.
5:49 am
but you can figure out some way to figure out how to pay and do it over time. >> more on the willis report. good job. we'll watch you at 5:00 o'clock on the "fox business" network. coming up, did you know that country star sarah evans takes her kids on tour with her? what else you might not know because we have a big announcement about her. ♪ ♪

and so it's been an incredible project. we visited an after school all-star program in l.a. in march and so we're just focusing on getting kids to eat their veggies. the best way is hidden valley ranch. >> of course. it's one of the greatest tastes ever invented. >> exactly. >> in addition to that, she has got a big announcement that you will hear first here on "fox & friends" in two minutes. is that okay? >> that's fine. >> we'll find out if she minds as steve touches her back, when we come back.
