have a wonderful weekend. let's keep talking about eric holder. what is his legacy and who should replace him? head to our facebook #keeptalking. >> we always enjoy your comments. >> we do. have a great weekend. "fox & friends" starts now. >> good morning. today is friday, september 26. m elisabeth hasselbeck. a fox news alert. he can't hide for long. the f.b.i. identifying the isis terrorist behind this mask. who is beheading american journalists? this as another big ally considers joining the united states in its fight. >> president obama's so-called enforceer eric holder calls it quits. but why now? why the timing seems a little too fast and furious. >> remember him? we hope he enjoyed the hot tub because this morning he is back in hot water. according to all reports, it's friday, and mornings are better with friends.
3:01 am
♪ >> we thought this was going to be a big war week but it ends with a big surprise yesterday. >> that's right. surprise is right. eric holder resigning after six years in one of the most controversial tenures in the obama administration. >> there he is yesterday in the east room next to the president of the united states. he called it quits. he didn't want to stick around much longer. he said our list of accomplishments is real. he said that the president -- the president at one point said eric holder approached him over the summer and said six years is a pretty good run. so the question is, why exactly is eric holder calling it quits right now? part of the conventional wisdom is the president didn't want to go through the fact that if the republicans take the senate, then he would have tough -- instead brian
3:02 am
terry's sister, brian terry was gunned down in the fast and furious scandal, she has a theory. >> i do not find it a coincidence that eric holder chose to resign now after judge baits decided to delay the release of the fast and furious documents. i think eric holder was hoping the documents would never be made public. >> he could also say after six years of so much else going on maybe i can get out the backdoor without people focusing on some of the most controversial things that i've been a part of. >> what controversial things? >> you mentioned the fast and furious scandal. he says that goes back to the bush administration. remember the fort hood shootings, that was workplace violence. >> it was terrorism. >> that's what i believe as well. tapping a.p. reporters phones, we're going to look into that, get to the bottom of that. i asked james rosen how that went. >> the list goes on and on and on. >> controversial.
3:03 am
>> as attorney general, you're supposed to be unbiased, but mr. holder himself has admitted that he has been an activist and he's been political and he has interpreted the law in such a way that it's helped the president of the united states. i always think that the attorney general is supposed to be unbuy crassed. lady justice -- supposed to be unbiased. >> you mean not wanting documents to be released on something like the fast and furious thing? >> rather than being unbiased, it always seemed like eric holder has had his thumb on the scale but chuck thomas on nbc doesn't see a problem with that. >> you would say the attorney general has to do the tough stuff, this is not a forgiving job. what's interesting about him, he's a very nonpolitical person. i think people used to mistakenly think that this guy was this longtime eylitical operative who
3:04 am
general. that is not him at all. >> this morning they said liberal attorney general eric holder. it's so wrong for the -- if the republican feels they have a conservative attorney general, that's wrong. i think it is a terrible precedent from here on in. >> i think he himself would prefer that description. >> al sharpton, good news for him, good news for america. he's going to be in on the selection. he's going to help make that work. >> apparently he had this statement for the white house. he said we are engaging in media conversations with the white house on deliberations on a suck source who we hope -- successor who we hope will continue in the same direction as eric holder. >> al sharpton clearly has an agenda. else big on what happened in ferguson. then you've got chuck todd
3:05 am
of "meet the press" the longest-running political analysis show on television and says eric holder is not political at all? huh? >> i don't think eric holder believes that. there's a lot going on. at the very least regardless of where the gender may or may not be the president has to go fast and furious to get a nominee out this. he's not sure if the senate is going to be democrat or republican so he's going to have a harder time getting someone confirmed through the lame duck session or the next few weeks. >> when you look at the list of scandals and then you have someone like an al sharpton saying they are going to be the neck turning the head to make the decision and that neck wants the head to look at someone exactly like eric holder who as we listed doesn't necessarily have such a clean record when it comes to unbuy -- unbiased
3:06 am
execution of his job. that is why people are concerned. let us know what you think about that. >> besides the fact that he's leaving and all the stations will be running his accomplishments, going to remind people about how over the last six years eric holder has been the president's enforcer and said many of the things that the president would not or could not say, eric holder went ahead and said. by the fact that he didn't enforce the laws of the land, he helped the president of the united states with his political agenda. >> but he hurt him with his very first move and that was saying khalid sheikh muhammad we're going to try you in new york. i guess history will inform us wh he led the president or the president wanted him to do that. >> any way, eric holder is saying so long. who would you like to see as the new attorney general? e-mail us at
3:07 am facebook us or twitter. >> in the meantime we'll say hello to leah gabriel. >> ferguson, missouri, erupts in violence once again. this time several people tried to knock out the police chief. [yelling] >> earlier in the day chief tom jackson apologized to the family of michael brown. he came out last night to speak to the crowd and actually started marching with the protesters. that's when a fight broke out. video shows officers and protesters pushing, shoving and knocking several people to the ground. at least four people are under arrest. the man charged in the disappearance of hannah graham could be extradited to virginia today. jesse matthew waiving his rights in court after being captured on a texas beach. the 32-year-old having some trouble understanding his rights, though. [inaudible]
3:08 am
>> hannah has been missing for nearly two weeks now. a powerful earthquake rattling alaska and it was all caught on camera. >> look at that! that thing's shaking like nobody's business. >> the 6.2 quake was centered 80 miles northwest of anchorage, felt some 300 miles away. these pictures just in show store shelves spilling into the aisles and ceiling tiles shaking loose but no one was hurt. talk about a story book ending for derek jeter. >> to right field! derek jeter at his final game! >> with one out in the bottom of the ninth, jeter drove in the game winning to beat the orioles 6-5.
3:09 am
he took one last view from the shortstop position and then he left the field. >> sort of an out-of-body experience. a couple of times almost lost it. saying please don't hit it to me. i want to take something special from yankee stadium and the view from shortstop here tonight is what i want to take from it. >> also taking one last look, this little kid. cameras caught jeter's nephew as he tipped his cap to his uncle. this video the top retweet by you, the "fox & friends" viewers. what a cute little guy. >> looked like he was crying during the game. extremely emotional. jeter kept it together but look at what's happening here. this isn't just a new york story. at 39 years old when you end your home yankee career wh an r.b.i. single to win
3:10 am
the game and as unlikely as it was in the ninth inning, the yankees were 5-2. bases loaded and he gets the r.b.i. single. it's incredible. >> no matter what team you love, if you love baseball that moment had to bring a tear to your eye and feel ultimate joy for as he took that last look, with a tip of the hat by his nephew, i think that was one of the best moments in baseball. >> the other thing he'll be playing in boston only to finish his career. he will not play shortstop again. >> a fox news alert closing in on the man who beheaded two american journalists. f.b.i. officials just revealed they know who he is. elizabeth prann live in washington with what we know. >> good morning. the f.b.i. is combing through the propaganda isis videos which shows executioners beheaded by men who could be british. they use tools such as facial recognition tech
3:11 am
technology. another isis video features two men and identifying them is a top priority for the f.b.i. as far as future hostages the fate of them is unknown. listen here. >> not going to get into the intelligence we have surrounding the attack that we know that they were planning. so i'm just not going to get into details on that. on the hostages that we still believe obviously that isil holds hostages, i don't have any information today to provide in terms of what their captivity looks like or where they might be or anything like that. >> another big development, we're learning u.s. ally, britain, says it will join
3:12 am
airstrikes against targets in iraq after weighing its options. prime minister david cameron expected to vote on that approval today. >> that is pretty scary when they are talking about one of the executioners with a north american accent. that limits it to the united states or canada. >> got about 100 over there, think about 3,000 in western europe. 12 minutes after the hour. >> coming up, he waited until nobody was looking. a suspected carjacker not only ramming into cars but running over people. look at this guy. how this terrifying mess eventually ended on tape. >> remember him? the government employee who billed the taxpayers for his hot tub party. he's back in hot water this morning, and we are going to tell you why. ♪ ♪ ♪

people who know me, to this day they say,tix. "i never thought you would quit." you know, i really didn't either but chantix helped me do it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it gave me the power to overcome the urge to smoke.
3:15 am
some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a nonsmoker; that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

good morning everybody. attorney general eric holder is stepping down. you hear about this? you heard about that, i'm sure. what will his legacy be? could it be controversy and coverups perhaps that no one seems to be talking about? joining us is former dsm -- d.o.j. official, jay christian adams. welcome back. we're going to talk a
3:17 am
little later on radio about this but real quick, we went through the major things eric holder caused controversy with. you have other ones that you think are equally important beginning with the fire fighter hiring back in 2011. >> yes. he's going to leave behind a legacy of lawlessness, brian. one is he forced new york city to hire fire fighters who flunked the test because they were black he said you've got to hire them, contrary to supreme court opinion, contrary to the rule of law. he forces police and fire departments to hire people who failed the test. >> you think that's significant; why? >> we want to have firemen who know how to be firemen not people who get the job on the baifsz -- basis of race. it is demeaning to everybody. he forces schools in new york to let kids dress like drag queens. these are boys, not girls.
3:18 am
>> on the race issue, we should have seen this coming. remember when he said this. >> as an african-american man who has been stopped and searched by police in situations where such action was not warranted, i also carry with me an understanding of the mistrust that some citizens harbor for those who wear the badge. >> the views are unique, but as attorney general are they appropriate? >> of course not. he used everything through a racial lens. he's been carrying around in his wallet a race card for 40 years that he said it means common cause with the black criminal. that's a quote from eric holder. this is a guy who has a radical agenda. he's gone after peaceful pro-life protesters around the country, hauled them into court, sued them for doing absolutely nothing wrong. judges after judge have slapped him down in these
3:19 am
cases. but it's part of him using the power of the justice department to advance a far left-wing agenda. >> in the end, do you feel like many other people who are in law enforcement that it is a bad precedent? i don't care what your agenda is, it should not come into being attorney general. >> that's exactly what the justice department always has been. frankly, even under janet reno, great attorneys general like ed meese, robert kennedy, these are people who respected the rule of law, who respected the institution. they didn't view it as a mill operation like holder does to help the democrat party, help the far left wing. that's why him leaving is a good thing. >> real quick, on the timing, what do you think it means? >> it means they want a senate to confirm somebody who is just as radical as he is. and that might not happen after the election. >> jay christian adams, thanks so much. that is your instant analysis of the news that was huge yesterday.

just about 24 minutes past the top of the hour. some quick headlines for you now. a big change for our military. the president now allowing illegals to serve. they must have come to the
3:24 am
country before they were 16, though. recruiters specifically targeting those with rare foreign language expertise or specialized health care training. remember, the military just issued tens of thousands of pink slips to american soldiers, something to keep in mind there. i.c.e. officials estimating they have lost track of 41,000 illegal immigrants. the immigrants failed to appear at mandatory meetings with the feds to determine if they were eligible for asylum. >> one of president obama's former health advisors dr. zeke yell emanuel, rahm emanuel's brother is known for his controversial remarks on health care. after all he's rahm's brother. now he's taking that controversy to a whole new level. living too long is a loss. it renders many of us if not disabled, faltering and declining, he writes. we are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but feeble, ineffectual and
3:25 am
even pathetic. in fact, rahm emanuel's entire essay was referred to as why i hope to die at 75. fox news medical a team dr. marc siegel joins us right now. what do you think about his message, we should die by 75? >> i hope he doesn't. i wish him well. i think his message is one of the most off the scale thengz he's -- things he's said. i don't think we as physicians should say who should live and who shouldn't. a lot of times i'll save someone or do something that causes someone to come back. i recommended a pacemaker for my father last year. he keeps coming back and he's 90 years old and doing terrific. a 93-year-old patient of mine hast year had something that looked like a stone that was going to require major surgery. we fished it out with a scope. he's completely with it. who is to say who's with it and who isn't?
3:26 am
>> ezekiel manuel says we should die at 75. look at the stats and one in three americans have alzheimer's which of course means two out of three don't. >> exactly, two out of three don't. first of all, we're doing a lot of research on alzheimer's right now. should we write off evan who has it or should we do more research and get it early? and two out of three don't have it. by the way, who is supposed to die who is too demented to function? is the u.s. government or maybe the i.r.s. is supposed to say, steve, your father is not what we want him to be anymore? >> exactly. maybe you're talking about those death panels that have been remord for -- rumored for so long. >> that is exactly the point. when you're older you're more prone to have a stroke and many stroke victims lose the ability to speak
3:27 am
and suffer from paralysis, an estimated 50% increase in stroke induced disabilities. what do you have to say about that? >> a lot of people recover from strokes completely and get back to normal function. i don't want to be in a position as a physician to say, sir, i'm sorry, your stroke is too severe, we're going to take you out back, like we would an animal. dramatic roifers -- recoveries from stroke with rehab and physical therapy. one guy was the owner of the restaurant, he went back as the maitre d'. he wasn't the owner anymore but he still functioned well. >> when you look back at americans getting older -- ezekiel is caught up on health care because they like to spend the money elsewhere. when you're older it costs more to keep you alive and
3:28 am
keep you healthy? >> one-third of our health care costs are spent in the last days of life. i want to concede that point to him but want to mention benjamin franklin who at the age of 80 was governor of pennsylvania. did you know he went to free the slaves, he freed all his own slaves at 80 years old? he was a major abolitionist at the age of 80, became a role model for abraham lincoln. what if he hadn't lived? the point is we can't judge. doctors don't judge, keep people going. preserve quality of life, keep people from suffering. to say at the age of 75 you had it is a dangerous thing for a leader like ezekiel emanuel is a dangerous thing to say. we wish him well. >> remember this? scott walker has given

3:33 am
>> "new york times" tweet out that it was president obama resigning? >> although some, i have seen some bloggers referred to our current president as semi retired any way. >> some are making that argument. >> let's take a look. remember this picture. it is jeff neily. he was an obama administration g.s.a. official. and there he is in las vegas during an $800,000 boondoggle for 300 g.s.a. employees. of course these images why released and next thing you know they dig around and discover wait a minute, the government is spending too much of our money as they have fun and we don't. >> he is indicted on charges of defrauding the government. the federal government feels the g.s.a. was paying for mind readers, bicycles, private parties, that $800,000 trip and a 17-day

[applause] >> how does that make maria feel? >> i'm looking out our magic window. i see her at 48th and 6th avenue where it is a little chilly on this friday morning.
3:37 am
>> that's right. hello, everyone. a little chilly in new york city. we're looking at a current temperature of about 58 degrees. we had a nor'easter storm system yesterday with areas of heavy rain but that system is gone and behind it high pressure. we're expecting a lot of sunshine not just today but also into the weekend with temperatures that could be above average for some of you. farther west across the western plains, temperatures in the 60's from parts of minnesota all the way down to texas. the high temperatures in texas, places like dallas are expecting temperatures into the upper 80's. 70 should be the high in new york city. as far as rainfall goes, we're looking at a chance for showers and storms across florida, southwestern texas and into the rockies. let's head back inside. >> thanks, maria. it's going to be another big weekend at the box office. kevin mccarthy, fox news contributor joins us now with his reviews. good morning, kevin. >> good morning. how are you guys doing

today? >> doing okay. you look great in your red shirt. >> really. i picked this out just for the show today. i went to express and bought it just for you guys. i got a big tie. no more skinny tie for me. denzel washington finally got another job. it's a movie. and you like it? don't like it? like to see it? >> the thing with denzel washington, he's one of the most consistent box office pullers in hollywood. every movie consistently makes over $150 million. this particular one is based on an 80's television show. this is a film adaptation of equalizer. denzel plays an ex-commando essentially in retirement. he becomes friend with a young girl and essentially she gets harmed by russian gangsters and he decides to take revenge on them. for me, the first 30
3:39 am
minutes of this movie are very slow and very boring but once you get into the action sequences and it becomes more of a revenge tale it gets really solid. if you can sit through the first 30 minutes and get past that. i like this style of denzel movie. i like when he's doing these epic revenge movies. i gave the movie a 3 out of 5. i didn't think it was anywhere near as good as training day. >> what about kids? can kids go to that? >> no, not at all. it is a violent movie. i'm surprised they got away with an r rating. i had a chance to sit down with dan zell washington. one of the things about denzel, he's had so many great roles throughout his career and he's been in acting since 1977 and he told an amazing story about the difference in shooting
3:40 am

3:54 am
made our country great, because it does acknowledge our rights do not come from the government, but from a higher power and they can't take those away. >> when you heard this group was taming to take out "under god" from the pledge, what was your reaction? >> i was definitely surprised. i was certainly surprised. >> could you say it without saying that part? >> no. i would not feel comfortable. i would feel silenced. >> why? >> because i believe that america is a very diverse country. a lot of different people with a lot of different beliefs call this country home. so i believe that everyone's beliefs, including atheists, are protected by this right because it acknowledges and reminds us that our rights don't come from the government, but electric a higher power. so they can't take away the basic human rights they did not create. >> i want to read this 'cause you're not just making this up. congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

that is as it is written. so is it mandatory to say the pledge in your school? >> no, it is not. it is optional in the state of new jersey to stand up and say the pledge. i don't believe that any student should be silenced because some people disagree with timeless american value. >> do you feel your basic rights would be violated if they said we're going to take "under god" out of the pledge of allegiance. >> yes, i would feel that way. >> but this is a big fight for you. you're a senior in high school. i assume it's kind of busy, got things to do. >> absolutely. >> but you'retology bear the cross right now and take it up and walk with it. why? why is it worth it? >> i was raised to stand for what i believe in. i stand on behalf for the back up fund for religious freedom and my family. we would like the courts to affirm this right. they have the right to remain silent, but not the right to silence everybody else. >> what's next in terms of the

4:05 am
kill americans, from allowing the president to spy on americans, from personally authorizing the invasion of privacy of our colleague, james rosen, from seizing property from people who weren't even charged with crimes, eric holder has been behind all of it. he is probably the least faithful to the constitution of any president in modern times and he doesn't regret any of it. >> by the way, we have received a number of suggestions on who should replace eric holder. many of you feel judge napolitano should. others feel judge jeanine who you see on the weekends, and even peter johnson, jr. a lot of you watching would like to see the rule of law actually enforced. >> others who might have an inside track over those, janet napolitano, and other names that don't stand out to those on the outside. duval patrick, which i don't really understand, but he is very tight with president obama. >> he would be another political

the air right there. whoa! good news, he's fine. >> thanks. from continuing his apology tour to pushing climate change agenda, how is america reacting to president obama's u.n. speech? language expert lee carter joins us to discuss just that. so you had a focus group. we'll if through some dials and start with part of the speech here that deals with choosing hope over fear, says the president. >> for america, the choice is clear. we choose hope over fear. we see the future not as something out of our control, but as something we can shape for the better through concerted and collective effort. >> so to the u.n. speech as it regards those topics. how did the public react? >> we spoke to people in l.a., in texas and in d.c. what we saw is that most people generally were responding favorly to this message. it was optimistic.
4:47 am
people were saying it was really strong, showed leadership and it was about time they heard something that sounded strong out of him. a b plus. >> then there were areas that people had more to say. this is the part where he brought up ferguson. take a listen. >> i know the world also took notice of the small american city of ferguson, missouri where a young man was killed and a community was divided. so yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions. >> what was the reaction there? >> there again you see the big split. for the most part, people responded similarly, republicans and democrats alike. but in this section, people were not so sure. in some ways the republicans felt like this was airing our dirty language. democrats felt like it was really authentic and genuine and so there was a big divide here that people were talking about. >> it may indicate how you see the united states as well. we're just as bad as everybody else, was sort of a philosophy to creep through that moment, right? >> that's exactly ha people were
4:48 am
saying. >> we're going to move on to another one. this is where -- actually democrats, republicans, kind of came together. so look at these dials closely during this part of the speech. >> america stands for something different. we believe that right makes might. the bigger nations should not be able to bully smaller ones. that people should be able to choose their own future. these are simple truths, but they must be defended. >> really a parallel there. in prior moments it's kind of split. explain that. >> as a language expert, i hear people say if obama opens his mouth, republicans are going to dial down. it's not true. both were favorable here. they were really proud of what he was saying. >> overall grade here? >> i give him an a. >> we thank you for joining us always with a close look at the dials. up next, it may look pretty, but does a big kitchen renovation actually pay off? why it may be the worst

washington's secret six." homeowners spent $130 billion on remodeling projects last year alone. but are those improvements really worth it? joining us right now, real estate expert and best selling author of "find it, fix it, flip it," michael corbett. a lot of people are on pins and needles wondering where segment will go. the ones that will brings return on our house. >> that's what this is all about. it's really about where to put your money to get your biggest bang for your buck, so to speak. and really the number one improvement action make on your home where you get the best return is landscaping. when you add in landscaping, especially if you start way ahead of time, you can put in small plants, bushes, hedges, lawns. these things cost very little money and give you big return and including outdoor lighting because so many home buyers eventually will look at homes at night, you want it to look
4:54 am
great. very inexpensive. >> interesting. minor kitchen remodeling. not a total revamp. why minor? >> okay. really if you can keep a kitchen remodel under around $15,000, that gets you maybe new cabinets, new counter tops, new appliances. there you're showing a 98% return, according to the latest cost versus return report. that's one of the best ways to improve. 'cause kitchen is the number one place. keep it minor. >> even if it's nice, the buyer might say no, i got to redo it and make it more to my liking. the other thing that i found really surprising is you think a wood deck addition is a positive. i thought wood decks were out and. >> no, any kind of a deck, what a deck does, which comes in around $11,000 probably, gives you a big return on your money because it actually expands your living space.
4:55 am
so not only does it add value to the home, it adds lifestyle to the home, which is a big return when you go to sell. >> as opposed to the pavers? >> absolutely. the deck actually gives that sort of a wonderful entertaining surface and a really big investment. >> improvements that yield the worst returns. major remodel of the kitchen. we went over that. a bathroom addition. you're adding and bathroom that and that could hurt the price? >> what happens really is room additions in general are not necessarily the best investment. what happens is you're at the mercy of a contractor. they always go overbudget. according to the trends report, about a 63% return on any room addition l it be a bathroom, a sun room, an extra bedroom. these are things where you can increase your lifestyle and enjoy them, but when you go to sell, you're not going to get all that money back. the same with a major kitchen remodel.
4:56 am
>> you do also note some trends. number one, the marble bath is a trend. a storage space, people need that and searching for that more and more. and an outdoor kitchen. >> yes. these are things that if you look at what's going on in the mls listings, actually trulia tracks that sort of thing, like which items are trending hot, marble baths, storage space, and these are a couple of the ones that are really big, and outdoor kitchens are popping up at all the sales listings as amenities that people are look form it's a good way to see what's hot and what people want. >> especially in those warmer climates. interesting stuff. thanks so much. >> you got it. coming up straight ahead, we move ahead, the final hour of the week. from eric holder's resignation to the new tape from isis terrorists, who might be american, by the way, geraldo rivera is here and willing to talk loud while i read out loud. kind of interesting. we'll talk about that in the

5:00 am
good morning. today is september 26. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. a horrifying scene unfolding at this hour. a bridge collapse right onto a busy highway. take a look at that. during the morning commute it occurred. we have the breaking details on that for you. eric holder is out. but not without controversy. >> this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot and in things racial, we have always been and i believe we will continue to be in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards. >> we are? civil rights hero or a racial divider? geraldo rivera joins us live in moments. debbie wasserman schultz back at it.
5:01 am
>> scott walker has given women the back of his hand. >> she just used that line once again and even though she apologized for saying to the first time, this time against a major player in florida politics. we'll explain because on this friday morning, i can honestly say your morning is better with friends. good morning, everybody. for the final time. a fox news alert coming your way first. closing in on the man that beheaded the two american journalists and one british aid worker. officials revealing they know who he is and we're just learning america has a new partner in the fight against isis. wendell goler is at the white house with the surprising announcement. >> reporter: you stole my lead. james comey says authorities have identified the british accented man who killed american
5:02 am
james foley and steven sotloff. they're not revealing his name, however. he also says there are about a dozen or so americans actually fighting with isis in syria, in iraq. that figure of 100 that's been tossed around includes people who have tried to go or gone and been killed. there are actually a handful who have returned and are now under surveillance. foley and sotloff were both journalists killed after the u.s. began air strikes on isis targets in iraq and syria. there were more air strikes at oil refineries refineries and os in eastern syria. the british are expected to join the fight, though they'll only be flying strikes in iraq since the syrian government hasn't officially asked for assistance. still white use spokesman josh earnest says that's consistent with a broad coalition in which each member contributes as they can. >> we have seen cooperation from both the french and the british to take different roles in terms of taking the fight to isil in iraq in support of iraqi and kurdish security forces doing that on the ground. and we're looking for broader
5:03 am
support across the globe for the air strikes that are necessary it syria as well. >> reporter: the danish government announced it is joining the coalition, sending seven f-16 fighting jets. belgium voting whether to join of the the white house says the iraqi prime minister was speaking in general terms about attacks on u.s. subways. there is no specific plot. guys, back to you. >> just the general nature scares a lot of people. wendell goler, thank you very much. geraldo rivera joins us. >> good morning to you. >> thank you. >> every place, down here, because people responded to the iraqi president. >> i have checked. i spoke at length with congressman peter king, with bernard kerrick, the great police commissioner here during 9-11, they say there is no credible threat that they know of and that the iraqi prime minister was speaking, blowing
5:04 am
smoke out of his hat. first of all, i wouldn't trust iraqi intelligence to tell me that today was friday. >> i hope you're right and that he was talking out of the top of his hat and there is nothing to it. although he was specific about paris and general about american subways. when you think subway, you think of this. f.b.i. director said apparently an isis propaganda tape features two people with north american accents. if there is a north american accent -- >> that means canadian. >> or from the united states. >> or from minnesota. i believe that they know who it is, who is on that tape. >> sure. >> to me, what is far more important is that the f.b.i. is tracking every trace that this person -- because what you want to do, you don't want to reveal the name. what you want to do is find out world in which they exist. who were they friends with? where do they go to school? >> are they involved? >> you want to take down the
5:05 am
entire network. >> i don't care who this is. this is like getting mad at one nazi. they're all bad. he's not a leader. he's the executioner. they'd have somebody else. we got to stop the movement, not the person. >> agreed. but remembering, if you were listening to the sentence just prior to that one, what i suggested is the important thing about knowing who he is is tracking down his network, finding out, does he have logistical supplies? does he have allies with whom he has traveled? where has he trained? what are his skills? i think the important thing is to find out who he is in the context of a terror organization. >> and what is his context here in north america, if he has some here. i think that's why everyone is picking up on that and saying what is surrounding him here? in terms of his accent, it brings it a little closer to home. >> let me make a couple of observation. first of all, i want the british to finally do it or get off the
5:06 am
pot. today has to be the day for the united kingdom to say we're in this fight. they more than the united states, more urgently threatened by burgeoning extremist population. they have to act and they have to act aggressively and they have to take revenge. i don't mind calling it that. remember the cop that got his head cut off in england, plus the prisoners that they're holding and threatening now. let's see the united kingdom finally stepping up. i am encouraging these air attacks. >> they're leveling off in day four. that's so discouraging. >> well, what you don't want to do, brian, and we all know this, you don't want to willie nilly bomb areas where you'll get collateral damage. i believe the strikes that have happened so far have been extremely effective. but you can't do anything if the iraqis are going to chicken out. the iraqi army again, the city just west of baghdad fell 300 more soldiers assassinated by
5:07 am
the isis terrorists. you've got to have somebody's boots have to be there. >> geraldo will be talking about the fight with isis saturday night. >> taking the fight to isis. 10:00 o'clock saturday live. >> we'll be watching. meanwhile, let's talk a little about eric holder. yesterday he said so long. democrats, sad. republicans, happy because they viewed him as a political activist who happened to be america's lawyer. >> i have a lot of things to say. first of all, my gravest disappointment with president obama, aside from the fact that he waited so long to fight isis and he let two months go by, my greatest disappointment has been his failure as the historic first black president to step up to the plate and really help heal the divisions in this country. race, i still believe is the most egregious, aggravated domestic issue we have and i think president obama, except for a couple of speeches, has not spoken about family
5:08 am
responsibility and healing and the need to get off a dependent culture. but i have seen eric holder do that. eric holder has been courageous. when he has put down for saying that we are cowards when it comes to speaking about race, he is not wrong. >> you know what? we've got a montage of some of those instances you're talking about. let's listen. >> things racial we have always been and we i believe continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation of cowards. you look at the way the attorney general of the united states was treated yesterday, what attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? what president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? certain racial component to this for some people, i don't think this was a main driver, but for some, there is a racial animas. as an african-american man who has been stopped and searched by police in situations where such action was not warranted, i also
5:09 am
carry with me an understanding of the mistrust that some citizens harbor for those who wear the badge. >> so what he has suggested, in addition to the we're a nation of cowards, is that people don't like the president, don't like the attorney general because they're black. >> well, let me just say that when darrell issa took the house oversight committee after his frustration with the pace of document revelation in fast and furious and for the first time in the history of the united states, had the attorney general, the first black attorney general in history, the first attorney general in history to be held, cited for contempt of congress, why did darrell issa do that? he knew that that citation was going nowhere. it had to go o a democratic federal judge in dc, it was a nonstart. why did he waste so much of congress' efforts to go after the attorney general of the united states who happened to be the first black man?
5:10 am
>> he's a political activist! he has said he's a political activist. >> let me say by me watching as a person who has tried and -- >> you're a lawyer. >> -- tried my whole life to be somebody, watching darrell issa use congress against this man, knowing it was going to accomplish nothing but make a political statement made me forever think of darrell issa as nothing but a partisan attacker. >> you think he's racist? >> you're talking about congress. we're talking about darryl -- we're talking about eric holder. >> i think that eric holder has been a fine attorney general. we will miss him. >> really? >> i want derek jeter to get that job. i think derek jeter will do a great job. >> he's looking for work. >> if you saw him last night, he can heal the racial breaches. >> geraldo leaves us laughing today. >> thank you very much. >> on a healing note. thank you. we have a lot of breaking news
5:11 am
for you right now. leah gabriel has that store us. >> we begin at chicago's o'hare airport because a fire has broken out in the control tower. you can see dozens of emergency crews are on the scene. no one was hurt. arrivals and departures are being delayed at least one hour there and it is affecting midway airport, too. you can expect that to get worse. a horrifying scene unfolding at this hour. a bridge collapsed right onto a busy highway. this happened during the morning commute. this all unfolding in detroit. a pedestrian bridge a busy freeway after being hit by a car hauler. one person hurt, but not seriously. the traffic on all lanes of i-96 are closed in both directions. and also happening overnight, ferguson, missouri erupts in violence, this time several people tried to knock out the police chief.
5:12 am
chief jackson came out last night to speak to the crowd and started marching with the protesters. but that's when a fight broke out. video shows officers and protesters knocking several people all wait to the ground. at least four people are under arrest. and a huge cyber security threat explodes overnight. it's called shell shock. it poses a serious risk to computers using lynux and mac operating systems. the threat exposes a flaw in computer code known as the bash bug. hackers can exploit it, taking complete control of a targeted computer and stealing their information. security firms are racing to develop a fix for the bug and those are your headlines. over to you guys. >> between that and the problems with the new iphone, technology is having a bad week. >> it sure is. >> back to the abacus. hard to travel. >> fox news alert for you now. the man charged in the
5:13 am
disappearance of missing university of virginia student hannah graham could be extradited to virginia at any moment. we are live on the ground next. and remember him? the government employee who billed the taxpayers for his hot tub parties. he's in hot water this morning. and i mean oh, boy. ♪ ♪

5:16 am
5:17 am
we've got a fox news alert. at any moment now, the man charged in the disappearance of that missing university of virginia student, hannah graham, could be leaving a jail in the texas area of galveston. kriv reporter is live in galveston. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. jesse matthew is being held in isolation here at the galveston county jail as he awaits his return trip back to virginia. we're told by the sheriff here had t could happen at some point told or perhaps tomorrow. it is up to the authorities in virginia to when that all goes down. we do know that he made two court appearances yesterday where he waived his right to fight the extradition. we're also told around that time, three investigators from virginia arrived. they immediately hit the ground running, searching for clues inside that light blue nissan sedan that matthew used to drive to texas. we're told thus far, no signs of hannah graham who went missing
5:18 am
two weeks ago on september 13. matthew is charged for her abduction. still a lot of questions remain. why did he come to texas? we don't know why. we don't know if there is a connection to galveston. the bigger question is where is hannah graham? even though he's in custody and back on his way to virginia at some point today or tomorrow, but this case still long from over. back to you. >> you're right about that. thank you very much. dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz back at it. listen. >> scott walker has given women the back of his hand. >> apparently after getting in trouble, she used that line more than once again major player in florida politics. and talk about a sibling rivalry. >> no. >> nonknopfly. >> is it sprinkling or raining?
5:19 am
we'll tell you how this battle turned out. stay tuned.
5:20 am
5:21 am
5:22 am
quick political headlines. it was the comment that turned women across america against debbie wasserman schultz. >> scott walker has given women the back of his hand. >> now we've learned that wasn't the first time. a new report this morning says she used the same phrase referring to florida governor rick scott last month. the former gsa boss wasting taxpayer money on a lavish
5:23 am
conference in las vegas in hot water. he was just indicted for fraud over his spending sprees. he was forced out of his government job in 2012 and now faces up to five years in prison celebrating hispanic heritage month continues this month with the story of martin mallorga. he's not your typical ceo. instead of spending hours in the office, he's often in south america tending to coffee farmers who make it all possible. alicia acuna has the story. >> i think for me, one of the best things that i do for myself and my family and our staff is going to these country, meeting these people and realizing the positivity that we can bring to the entire communities. it's powerful. we see farmers as our business
5:24 am
partners, our suppliers that we rely on, we trust and respect. my visits there and whether it's with five employees or just my son or whoever it is, to meet with peers. >> reporter: born in guatemala, he spent his early years in managua where his father had roots. after the overthrow, a revolution drove them from there and they made it to the u.s., ultimately landing in the dc area. >> by the time i was ten years old, 11 years old, i moved eight, nine times. sometimes fleeing earthquakes or revolutions. sometimes just finding a country that would allow us to stay there and it made me realize that you always land on your feet. >> reporter: at 19, he took that confidence and launched his own cigar company while attending georgetown university. he sold the company a few years later to j.r. cigar, but took away so much more. what did you learn from that experience? >> i learned so much.
5:25 am
integrity, honesty and simplity, from the way you price, to the way you communicate to your customers. it was a very easy way to do business because it tied into who i am. >> next came coffee. during a visit to nicaragua, a family friend asked martin if he would consider importing his green coffee beans because he couldn't feed his family with what the local mill wanted to pay for his crop. >> farmers, just to get the opportunity to harvest their own product. banks typically won't loan to them. so who will? the people who buy from them. they loan them money at 18, 25, 30% interest and make them commit all their harvest to them, rock bottom price. in reality, they want the farmers -- it gets them cheap product and it's a pretty twisted system and something that i believe needs to change. >> reporter: he cut out the middle man and started importing and selling the beans himself.
5:26 am
some of the industry considered it a revolutionary idea. for martin, it was common sense. >> it's taking a product, finding the nearest point to the consumer and creating that equity from the farmer to the consumer all the way through. >> reporter: it wouldn't be easy at first. but with the help of his wife and her credit card, they gave it a go. >> i worked at cigar shop by day and telemarketing at night. >> you're a telemarketer? >> i was. i sold magazine subscriptions when you get a free bird house when you signed up. >> reporter: he would soon get the last laugh. in 2001, costco brought him in for a tryout, giving him five days to prove himself at one of the company's road shows. >> it's a funny story because they gave me a number that was our goal. i believed it was a number of pounds we had to sell. so i was so obsessed with hitting the pounds. something like 5,000. we fell short by maybe 10%. and i remember i was so upset. well, the buyer was beaming when i came in. 'cause she said you guyone of
5:27 am
the best road shows we've ever had in the company. i said how is that possible? she said you broke your goal by like fivefold because she was talking dollars. i was thinking pounds. >> whoa. >> we continue to do road shows today, 14 years later. right now this is a batch that was just roasted. you can see our roast master through the parole who was. we do it batch by batch. >> reporter: things have definitely worked out. the company is on track to sell more than 5 million pounds of coffee this year. almost twice as much as last year. and nearly three times as much as the year before. with all the success, he never forgets the farmers that brought him here. when you think about all the changes you've made with the families, they must feel indebted to you. >> i hope they don't feel indebted. i hope they have a taste of what we appreciate every day here, or some don't appreciate in this country. getting that part-time job to one day become a assistant
5:28 am
manager, to one day owning 50 franchises, we have that in our country. for me, it's giving people a taste of that. it's almost kind of passing the baton down. >> heartfelt perspective. when martin found out his farmers in graduate llama would lose their whole crop due to a fungus, he said why not plant chia seeds. so they're doing that. a remarkable man doing remarkable things. thank you for that. next week a beauty queen who is not somebody you would want to mess with. we are going to kicks things up with miss usa, mia sanchez. to check out more stories celebrating hispanic heritage month, visit us at and up next, did you see the redskins game last night? well, something was missing.
5:29 am
it's the word redskins. fans infuriated with phil sims and we have the fallout for you next. and president obama's top top calling it quits. who should replace eric holder? and should al sharpton have a say in it? chris wallace on that next.
5:30 am
5:31 am
5:32 am
welcome back. it's what one nfl commentator is not saying that's make headlines this morning. phil sims refusing to say redskins last night during the game. it was a little awkward. >> yeah, a lot of weapons on this washington offense. the washington team, they have a lot of weapons on the offensive
5:33 am
side. >> the redskins fans not happy with sims, some of them weren't. they brought these signs to the game. get rid of sims. cbs, mocking him. even though he's considered one of the finest analysts in the game. one of the biggest redskins fans on the planet is chris wallace. his opinion in this instance is invaluable. chris, where do you stand on this? >> listen, the way the redskins played yesterday, i'm just as glad he didn't say their name. it's okay with me. look, as long as the redskins, i certainly am going to call them the redskins. the vast majority of people in washington are not offended. i understand some people are. i don't have a problem with phil sims if he wants to take that personal stand. but they're the washington redskins to me until they aren't. i just wish they'd play better. that's all. >> good luck on that. >> chris, let me ask you this, eric holder's resignation kind of stunning washington and the
5:34 am
nation here. but what's going to happen here? 'til the confirmation process he's going to stay on. who do you think will step in there and up to the plate? we've heard a couple names, duval patrick. any other names floating around? >> yeah. there are several names. the u.s. attorney in new york city. when i covered the white house a million years ago during the lincoln administration, they used to say that those who talk don't know and those who know don't talk. i suspect that's true. but the consensus is that obama would like to appoint a woman or someone of color, of course. eric holder was the first african-american attorney general and i think the timing is crucial and i think one of the reasons that he resigned now is because of a concern that republicans might take over the senate and so if you want to get somebody that's even close to somebody that if you're barak obama that you want, better to do it in a lame duck session
5:35 am
when you know for certain that the democrats will be in the majority. >> what's interesting, chris, after the news broke yesterday, it seems like democrats kind of sad. we loved him. republicans on the other side, hey, finally he's gone. no doubt, and mr. holder himself referred to himself as a political activist. so it's curious given all of the scandals republicans would say involving eric holder, chuck todd, who host another sunday show on another network, was so pro-holder in this sound bite. listen to this. >> out of the tough stuff that you would say hey, attorney general has to do tough stuff. this is not a forgiving jobç but what's interesting about him, he's a very nonpolitical person. and i think people used to mistakenly think that this guy was this long-time political operative who happened to be an attorney general. that's not him at all. >> do you agree with that? he was nonpolitical?
5:36 am
>> well, he was nonpolitical in the sense that he was involved -- he was not involved in party politics. but in terms of having a policy agenda and quite frankly, was a policy agenda that very much tracked with barak obama's, he was extremely political. he obviously had very strong feelings about voting rights, very strong feelings about gay rights, a number of issues like that. i think you have to note that they talk about black holes. the justice department is where scandals, controversies for the obama administration of these last six years went to die. when they announced the justice department was investigating something, whether it was the irs or operation fast and furious, or the investigation of the justice department targeting members of the press, including our own james rosen, boy, it would enter the justice department and we'd never hear about it again. >> how relieved are you that al
5:37 am
sharpton will be helping in the selection process? >> he is not the person that i would go to if i were trying to choose an attorney general. but the president gets to choose his advisors, i guess. another nonpolitical person. >> he said this actually, we are engaged in a media conversation with the white house on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of attorney general holder. >> you know what? if the white house is going to listen to al sharpton, they'll probably listen to you too, chris wallace. >> i don't even know how to answer that. listen, look, it's on the record, particularly in the case of ferguson, that sharpton was the person who was briefing valerie jarrett and people in the white house referred to him as their go-to person now in the african-american community. so i suppose if he has that rank and that standing in the obama white house, it's not surprising that they won decide that he's somebody whose advice they want when it comes to picking an attorney general. >> listen, you have a big
5:38 am
line - up. general jack keane will be there and some political power players. i love your power player of the week especially. >> yeah. we are going to be talking about holder. we are going to be talk being isis with jack keane and a couple of senate leaders when it comes to national security issues. but my power player of the week, reese witherspoon, who i got to sit down with last week. people say to me, what was that like? i say it's exactly like you think you would. she's lovely, smart, and i think you'd have to say perky. she's like the character in the movies. she's really -- elisabeth probably hobnobs with reese witherspoon. >> i hear she's sweet. >> do you expect to be close friends with reese witherspoon after this? >> no. it doesn't transfer that way. >> oh, it doesn't? >> first of all, you and i aren't that close. incidentally brian, do you want to tell your pals there what you did to me yesterday? >> let's hear it.
5:39 am
>> i don't think we have the time. >> chris, what happened, quickly? >> i don't know that -- brian is ashamed of what he did. let's say he played a very mean practical joke on me. having said that, he knew what i would do. real quickly, his producer said, hey, before we went on the radio show, he said, brian is in a really bad mood, but don't mention it, which is like saying to a three-year-old, sit in the corner and don't think of a pink elephant. so i was on for 30 seconds and i said why are you in a bad mood and it turns out they had set me up. >> because i know everything i tell him off the air, he tells on the air. it was a trap. >> a blabber mouth. >> guilty as charged. >> chris wallace, who seems to always be in a good mood, thank you very much. see you on sunday morning. >> bye. it's 21 minutes before the top of the hour. we're going to step aside and coming up -- >> eric holder stepping down. who is going to become america's next top cop?

welcome back. a sky diving lesson going horribly wrong. at first the jump seemed perfectly routine. the instructor keeping a steady hand there on a student. but suddenly he starts to spin. and you see that here. oh, my. the man nearly plunging to his death. his quick thinking instructor able to catch up to him, and pulled the rip cord just in time. everyone thankfully landing safely. and this may be the most adorable argument ever. >> because -- >> it's raining. >> no, my mom says it's sprinkling. >> it's raining!
5:44 am
>> it's raining. >> a little boy tried to win the fight with two twin girls about whether it's sprinkling or raining. it is not clear who won. but a heart was definitely broken in the process. steve. in the months ahead i will leave the department of justice, but i will never, i will never leave the work. i will continue to serve and try to find ways to make our nation even more true to its founding ideals. >> okay. so yesterday the attorney general made it official. he's resigning. so who is in? there is lots of speculation about potential replacements. joining us to sort them all out is fox news legal analyst, peter johnson, jr. all right. the big question is, eric is out. >> washington is ablaze with rumors. we picked a few people who may be up for consideration. let's look at the first one. janet napolitano. she's the former dhs secretary
5:45 am
and arizona governor from 2009 to 2013. she was head of dhs. first one to hold that position. now is president of the university of california system, she was a leading contender for the supreme court, but was passed over in favor of sonia sotomayor and elena kagan. maybe she's got a shot this time. >> also the guy who makes the case for the united states at the supreme court. >> he's called the lawyer's lawyer. the u.s. solicitor general. he's been a solicitor general since june 2011. his job has been arguing the administration's legal positions in the supreme court. he made the position for obamacare before the supreme court. he got panned by a lot of the reporters and analysts during his argument. but ultimately he won the case on behalf of the united states. >> there is somebody who seems to be going after republicans and democrats, people all across the political spectrum. >> great prosecutor.
5:46 am
ivy league guy, horatio al engineer kind of guy. even looking at the governor of new york state with regard to his role in a commission naming. and so he's being looked at. he's been involved with the bernie madoff case, lots of cases. times square bombing. quite a senator guy. >> a lot of people like him. a lot of people have referred to the current attorney general as being a political activist. if you have a u.s. -- >> if you have somebody a u.s. senator, wouldn't they be political too? >> it's political job in some elements. minnesota senator, senior senator from minnesota. first woman to be elected as senator in that state. named by the "new york times" as one of 17 women in the country most likely to become the first
5:47 am
female president of the united states. >> meanwhile, the woman who is the top law enforcement officer in california. >> california attorney general since 2011. she's running for reelection now. long been mentioned as possible candidate for the u.s. senate. i work for the people of california as attorney general. finally, deval patrick, very close to the president of the united states. governor since 2007. he's not running for reelection. i think he's term limited. first african-american governor of massachusetts. close friend of barak obama. said he's not running for reelection and intends to return to the private sector. he may be a strong candidate. he doesn't have a job at this point. he's interested perhaps in become the president of the united states some day. this may be a great opportunity for him. very interesting people. let's see if they can be as political and as motivated as the current attorney general has been to help this president. >> we're going to find out. peter johnson, jr., thank you. .

5:53 am
and it's just nice. you have a chance to influence young players when you're a manager and you try to do the right thing and nobody has done a job of doing the right thing better than derek jeter, especially in this city, single, good looking, having opportunities to get in trouble all over the place and he's had a great deal of respect for what he does. >> it seems like the games are really going longer. >> i don't seem to mind. in 1981, the average baseball game was two hours, 33 minutes long. and now it's well over three hours. >> what happened? how come the game got long? >> i think it's the dead time we're talking about in these games. but again, we have commercial breaks, which obviously we're not going to do anything about. to me, i think a big part of it is the pitchers. years ago issue and i always swore when i was a young player that i would never say, when i was a player. >> but when i was a player. >> when i was a player.
5:54 am
pitchers just challenged hitters to go ahead and swing and hit the ball. now i think pitchers are trying to find a way to trick you and not have you swing, but get a called strike. i think a lot of it is that and you have the hitters now who have, from the on deck circle to the batter's box, it's walk up music. >> before we got start you were talking about how over at major league baseball, one of the issues were addressing, given the fact the nfl has been embroiled in it, is domestic abuse. >> yes. we've always had rules in place about behavior and the commissioner has the authority to discipline according to the infraction. we're at a point where we're going to write a rule that will be done in conjunction with the players association that hopefully can address the issue. >> this is one that was literally close to home for you. >> yeah. i grew up in an abusive home.
5:55 am
my dad abused my mom. i was affected by it just by being present. >> something else very personal to you is prostate cancer. september is prostate cancer awareness month. what do you want every man watching to think about? >> i was diagnosed in '99 and it scared me to death. i had the surgery 'cause i had an aggressive form. but there are a lot of men who are making decisions before they have enough information. we have one in six men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. most of them are probably getting treatment when they really don't need it right away. so it's something to check on. i'm not telling you how to do it, but at least give yourself a chance to make a decision. >> and our thanks to joe torre for stopping by the couch earlier this week. >> he was going for the world series in '99. got knocked out. more "fox & friends," we wrap up the entire week in just a moment
