"hannity" is up next. welcome to "hannity." this is a fox news alert. despite the rise of radical islam that we are witnessing now in the middle east and beyond, the white house is now doubling down on its accomplishment of decimating al qaeda. just yesterday our very own ed henry pressed white house secretary josh earnest about
this exact thing. here to tell us all the details of this, fox news white house correspondent, the one and only ed henry. you're pressing these guys hard. they must be getting mad at you. >> well, maybe a little bit, sean. what is interesting, jay johnson, the president's homeland security gave a speech in canada yesterday listing all the terror threats. it's obviously an important thing to warn not just the american public but the world about what's out there right now. he talked about isis of course. talked about al qaeda affiliates, which the president has warned about many times around the world. but then also listed core al qaeda inside afghanistan and pakistan, the homeland security secretary said did not mention that they had been decimated as the president has said many times. i asked john earnest, what is going on here? are they shifting policy? are they shifting message? listen. is the administration signaling that core al qaeda is no longer decimated? that they are part of this threat matrix?
>> ed, we stand by what is demonstratively true, that core al qaeda, the network that previously existed along the border region between afghanistan and pakistan, has been decimated and destroyed. >> so they specifically say along the border they've been decimated. leaves open the possibility core al qaeda elsewhere around the world could be coming back. now, the other big security issue obviously is how is the president's strategy in terms of trying to decimate isis now? and remember the president has faced criticism about why he pulled out troops from iraq. why he didn't leave a residual force behind. what's changing now it's not just republicans saying that. his former defense secretary, leon panetta has a new book out saying they could have gotten a status of forces agreement with iraqi prime minister nouri maliki. panetta saying the white house pushed back on panetta's effort to get that agreement. panetta writing, "but the president's team at the white house pushed back, and the differences occasionally became heated within the administration
he was saying. and those on our side view the the white house as so eager to rid itself of iraq that -- it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests. interesting, because it's now criticism coming from within some of the president's insiders. today, we should note retired general david petraeus who was the architect of president bush's surge in iraq in 2007 gave a qualified endorsement of the president's strategy currently against isis saying "there's a reasonable chance of success." not a ringing endorsement, but a qualified endorsement, john. >> all right, ed. very informative. thank you so much from the white house tonight. meanwhile, frightening news about the latest threat from isis. the u.s. army is now warning military personnel about the terror network targeting their family members. fox's own catherine herridge has the very latest, all the details from washington tonight. catherine? >> sean, fox news has reviewed a special assessment from the army threat integration center which issues early warning of criminal and terrorist threats to army commands worldwide. the advisory warns military
personnel and their families to be vigilant after the islamic state also known as isis or isil called on its supporters to target their homes. it reads in part, isil has called on lone wolf offenders in the u.s. to use the yellow pages, social media sites like facebook, linkedin and twitter, to find the addresses of service members, show up at their homes, and slaughter them. while there's no independent corroboration of the isis threats, the bulletin advises more than a half dozen precautions that include urging service members to limit access to their social media profiles online. this week the pentagon said the air strikes has isis under pressure at least in the short-term. >> that's a good thing. because if they aren't operating as freely, then they aren't as free to achieve their goals. that doesn't mean isil doesn't still pose a threat. >> in the statement the army told fox news that force protection levels have not changed, but the bulletin is a reminder to remain vigilant. separately a military source said these warnings are taken
seriously because increasing the cost of security is a strategic goal for the al qaeda senior leadership. sean? >> and catherine, thank you. meanwhile, president george w. bush is back, the 43rd president of the united states, sat down with fox & friends co-host brian kilmeade earlier this morning. and among a wide range of topics discussed was the current crisis in the middle east. and this warning that he made back in 2007. >> begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for iraq, for the region and for the united states. it would mean surrendering the future of iraq to al qaeda. it'd mean that we'd be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. it would mean we allowed a terrorist to establish a safe haven in iraq to replace the one they lost in afghanistan. it would mean increasing the probability that american troops would have to return at some
later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous. >> today, seven years later the former president's prediction is now become a reality. now, take a look at what he told brian earlier today. >> i know the nature of the enemy. anybody who kills 3,000 innocents and beheads people because of their religion or because of their point of view, is dangerous. and there's a short-term strategy, which is to bring them to justice, and a long-term strategy which is to encourage free society to prevail so as to marginalize their ideology. the long-term strategy just takes time. americans have got to understand that the lesson of 9/11 is still as important today as it was right after the 9/11 which is the human condition elsewhere matters to our national security. >> here with reaction are "the wall street journal's" jason riley, the weekly standard's stephen hayes, and outnumbered co-host kirsten powers is with
us. let me set the stage for my question this way. the president's -- relax. the president's jv comment. the president a month ago saying it was a fantasy to support the syrian opposition, pharmacist, doctors and that comment that he made, blaming the intelligence community on "60 minutes." the intelligence community firing back, no, we warned the president in granular detail on isis and what would happen in iraq like what president bush said. how do you make that many mistakes? these are monumental. >> well, i would argue that he was right on syria. and that he's changed his position to the wrong position. so he was originally right that there really were no rebels -- >> he was right a month ago? >> well, that was his position even preceding a month ago. that has been his position all along that there really were no rebels that were in a position to at that time we wanted to overthrow assad, we had a completely different purpose for it. they were in no position to overthrow assad. i think he was right. he shouldn't have changed his position. >> a month ago he was saying
it's a fantasy. now it's the core -- funding the syrian opposition, the doctors and the pharmacists. what about that? i mean, president bush was so accurate, so dead-on, and he says i understand the nature of the enemy. this president won't say the islamic state is islamic. this president won't say what happened in oklahoma city or ft. hood is terror. we're not at war with isis, steve. >> this is the big problem. this president doesn't understand who we're fighting or if he understands it he's reluctant to say it. look at the fight we've been having in public, that the administration's been having with itself in public over the past two weeks about core al qaeda and who we're fighting. now you've got the white house saying this is demonstratively true that -- >> explain this. the khorasan group were all bin laden deputies and those aligned with him that moved their operation to syria. >> absolutely. and tom joscelyn from the foundation for the defense of democracy says that they were ordered by ayman al zawahiri to move from pakistan and afghanistan to syria to conduct operations against the west. >> but they said in 2012 that it was decimated. >> well, that was false then. it's also false when the white
house says it now. you don't have to take my word for it. ben rhodes who is a top adviser to the president said on september 23 245rd that the khon group includes some former al qaeda operatives, core al qaeda operatives from afghanistan and pakistan who made their way to syria. how can they at once be conducting -- planning operations against the west in syria having moved from afghanistan and pakistan and at the same time have been destroyed and decimated as josh earnest said yesterday. the problem is this is a pr problem. the white house sees this as a pr problem, a definitional problem. you don't win a war if you're fighting a pr battle. >> remember the president didn't lift a finger as ramallah and fallujah and tikrit were all and mosul were all being decimated. >> as far as i can tell the only foreign policy is do nothing to get him compared to george w. bush. even if george w. bush was right. and i thought the former president was quite restrained in his remarks to brian. because the reality is obama has
sent troops back -- or sent people, americans back to fight in iraq. that alone is evidence of a foreign policy failure on the part of the obama administration. and president bush, was too much of a gentleman to say that. >> he's been quiet the entire six years. yesterday was the one-year anniversary of healthcare.gov. let me run through issues. a disaster. even you admit that was a disastrous roll-out. >> the roll-out. >> $2 billion later it's still a disaster. you've got the v.a., the irs, benghazi, illegal immigration problem that now every state has illegal immigrants in it. you've got north africa, libya, you've got -- let's see, afghanistan, russia, the ukraine, crimea, iraq, iran, israel, gaza, you can go through all of these things. and i'm not even talking about the economy. >> you don't really think he's responsible for israel and gaza? >> i think he should have stood up for israel more. >> okay -- >> i think he could have >> 4,000 rockets, yeah --
>> i think you could have had me for a little bit and then the next thing it's going to be my dinner wasn't warm enough and obama's to blame. i don't think you can blame him for every single thing that happens in the world. >> no, but i think he's a poor leader. here's what george w. bush, this to me is revealing. i want to get your thoughts on it. he says obama never calls him. bush did talk to clinton. watch this. >> has president obama called you? >> he called me to tell me that the nation killed osama bin laden -- or s.e.a.l.s. team 6 got osama bin laden, which i was grateful. no, he's not on a regular basis. which is okay. doesn't hurt my feelings. it's a decision he has made. look, presidents tend to rely upon the people they're close to. and he's got a team that he has grown close to over the six years he's been president -- or nearly six years. and he relies upon their judgment. and i understand that. >> we've been told by democrats he doesn't talk to them either. >> you know, it's remarkable what president bush said that he doesn't get called by obama. but it's not really surprising.
i mean, humility is not a word that comes to mind when you discuss president obama. this is a guy who says i can do any job better than the person i hired to do it. i'm a better speech writer than my speech writers. i know more policy than my policymakers. it is not remarkable that someone with that sort of ego doesn't feel the need to call a former president to discuss matters that that president has been through already. >> i also think he doesn't think george bush was a good president and i don't think he has the kind of advice he wants. >> george bush didn't any bill clinton was either. >> well, i don't know about that actually. >> i do. >> i think if you look at clinton and carter -- carter used to complain that clinton never called him. i don't think clinton really thought carter was a very good president. didn't want advice from him. so i think it probably can be more -- >> whatever you think of the policy of your predecessors, there are things you can learn from talking to one of the few people in the world who's occupied the same office. i think the big difference between george w. bush and barack obama at least in the context of the war on terror and
this, george w. bush, when things in iraq were going poorly, he listened to people who were criticizing his policy. >> change. >> and understood that it wasn't working. and acknowledged that it wasn't working. when barack obama sent -- you know, decided we were going to conduct air strikes in iraq and syria, he gave a speech in which he doubled down on his failed policies. he boasted in the second paragraph of that speech about withdrawing troops from iraq and announced that he was going to do it in afghanistan too. he won't listen. he's unwilling to admit when he's made mistakes. >> look, i get you love george bush. it didn't vote for him. i don't have anything against him. i think he's a nice man. but let's not try to recreate him as the most amazing president. >> he won the war though. >> no, he didn't. what did we win? we didn't win. i want to go back to what steve said. >> whoa, we won that war. the surge worked. >> he did not do what steve just said because he didn't fire donald rumsfeld until he was absolutely backed into a corner to do it. >> and then he did, and then he changed course. and then he changed course. >> people are pressuring him and
telling him he's got to go -- this is not going well. >> real quick. got to go. >> but he did. but he fired don rumsfeld, changed course and created -- >> you're too late. >> 4,000 americans have been lost -- >> you burn the place down and then you have a surge that's successful. congratulations. great job. >> guys, good to see you. jason and i are the calm ones. all right. coming up next tonight on "hannity". >> it is my contention that the president of the united states right now is in a full blown cover-up. >> all right, the great one mark levine was not mincing words last night about the president and what he knew and when he knew it as it relates to the isis threat. coming up next, senator lindsey graham is here to react and explain why he is demanding access to the president's daily intel briefings. and later, rnc chair, reince priebus is here for a "hannity" exclusive to explain the gop strategy for winning in november. that's all coming up on this busy news night tonight, straight ahead. ah! come on!
let's hide in the attic. no. in the basement. why can't we just get in the running car? are you crazy? let's hide behind the chainsaws. smart. yeah. ok. if you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions. it's what you do. this was a good idea. shhhh. be quiet. i'm being quiet. you're breathing on me! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. head for the cemetery!
welcome back to "hannity." the great one, mark levin made waves when he accused president barack obama of a full-blown cover-up on isis. take a look. >> it is my contention that the president of the united states right now is in a full blown cover-up. that's why he went to his favorite "60 minutes" correspondent steve kroft. that's why he blamed his intelligence agencies for this. this has nothing to do with the intelligence agencies. it has to do with the intelligence between his ears. i want to know, did the president of the united states know about the creation, the development of isis and this caliphate. i believe he knew about it for years. i believe he knew about it when he was running for office. he concealed it from the
american people. >> to help answer those questions or more, my next guest wrote a letter to the president urging him to hand over the content of his daily intel briefings to congress. here to explain why, south carolina senator lindsey graham. senator, good to see you. first of all, what do you think of mark's comments? i think mark is dead-on. what do you think? >> i think the problem that we all have is we don't trust the president of the united states to be honest with us. this is the same guy who said i never referred to isis as the jv team when he did. this is the same guy that said it was the iraqis decision not to leave troops behind, not mine. this is the same guy that blamed a video two weeks after the benghazi attack that had nothing to do with it. so the letter is written to the president to clear this up. he's thrown the intelligence community under the bus. and if he's right, somebody needs to be fired if they missed it. and if he's misleading the american people as him checking
out as commander in chief, i want to know that. >> well, james clapper, who he said himself admitted that it was an intelligence community failure, which by the way we were told that the president got presidential daily briefings every day, granular detail about the rise of isis, i don't think it's surprising now that the agencies, all these "leaks" saying in fact he was given lots of details about isis and did nothing and clearly on iraq he knew the consequences if he'd pull out early and not keep intelligence and training forces on the ground. we see what happened. >> the question is would this president shift blame to protect himself? the answer is yes. when he says he did not refer to isis as the jv team in january because they're so powerful now, he's trying to basically walk back that statement. at the end of the day he wanted out of iraq. the iraqis were willing to leave troops behind, but he would never give them a number. now he's throwing the intelligence community under the bus, i believe. but the presidential daily briefings could solve this problem.
let us see what he was being told and make our own independent decision in congress who has oversight. i'm worried our intelligence community is not functioning according to the commander in chief, or it is the commander in chief not functioning? we'll never know until we see the information. president bush turned over his presidential daily briefings to the 9/11 commission to make sure history recorded what happened on 9/11. mr. president, president obama, turn those daily briefs over to history can adequately record what happened regarding the rise of isis. did you miss it and ignore it? or was it the intelligence community? >> well, the intelligence community is saying that in fact the president was warned. he only apparently sat through these meetings, he missed 60% of them. what do you make of that? isn't that his main job? he played golf more than he sat through intelligence briefs. that's a little frightening. >> whatever you want to say about president bush, he was
intent from the day those buildings crumbled until the day he left to protect this country. he was all over terrorism trying to keep the war over there so they wouldn't come back here. i can't imagine the commander in chief in the times in which we live not listening and asking questions every day about the threats we face. does he have a television? does he read the newspaper? clearly the rise of isis was there to be seen, but on the "60 minutes" program he shifted blame. that's unfair, if it's not true. and if it is true, somebody needs to be fired. >> but the president is insisting that isis is not islamic. he's saying he said sunday we are not at war with isis. we're bombing them, but we're not at war with them. and ft. hood still characterized as workplace violence and apparently they have an unwillingness to even say what happened in oklahoma is an act of terrorism. what do you make of that? >> i make of a person, the commander in chief, our
president, not being honest either with himself or the public about the times in which we live. 76% of the american people believe he's being too soft, too weak regarding radical islam. i bet you if you polled isil, 100% would say the same thing. if you polled our enemies. that would say he is weak. if you poll our friends. that would say he's weak. the american people have figured this out. and president obama constantly says things that make no sense. isil's at war with us, my friend. we should be at war with them. >> listen, i think, if this continues the growth of these terror groups throughout the middle east and africa, i think it's definitely going to hit the west. then we'll have a similar -- something similar to the 9/11 commission report. they were at war with us. they were beheading americans. they said they'd raise their flag, the flag of islam in the white house. they said they'd meet us in new york. there won't be any surprise here.
the question is whatever the president knew, we had 4,000 americans die in iraq, the surge worked, and he stood by as ramallah and tikrit and fallujah and mosul and city after city fell. and he didn't lift a finger. he bragged about how he got us out of a war. he didn't keep the troops on the ground for intelligence and training purposes. is that his fault that iraq has been lost and isis now has this land mass? >> absolutely. it was clear to all of us who go over there for any length of time that we were leaving iraq in a bad spot if you pulled everybody out. if you'd left 10,000 behind, isis wouldn't be in iraq today because we could have stopped them. the iraqi army would still be in tact. political progress was still being made. i think he has two legacies he jealously guards, obamacare and ending the war in iraq. and this political strategy to defeat isil is going to fail is
actually -- excuse me, a military strategy to defeat isil is not what we have. we got a military strategy around a campaign promise that i'll never have to go back into iraq. and he's creating danger to our country by allowing these people to grow and be unchecked. air strikes are not going to work, sean. that alone won't work. >> let me ask you one last question. the kurds are saying it's not working. he's saying no boots on the ground, no shock and awe. our military experts, former defense secretaries have pretty much all said the same thing. they're saying to the president that's not the strategy that is going to win. do you think that this is directly related to polls that show the american people see isis as a clear and present danger and the pending election, the midterm elections, do you see a connection? >> i think he's reluctant to introduce troops on the ground as an option which clearly needs to be. you're never going to destroy isil without going in on the ground in syria and iraq to get them out. and america has to be part of
that force, not the only part, but part of that force. i really believe he's worried more about not being george w. bush than protecting the country from a growing threat that he will never, ever, no matter what anybody tells him, introduce forces into syria and iraq that are necessary to protect us. he is trying to run out the clock. he's trying to do as much as possible and as little as possible not to have to go in on the ground. and he's wanting to get out of the job and leave this mess to the next president. and that breaks my heart for those who fought and died in iraq. and shame on you, mr. president, for putting the country in such a spot. >> all right, senator. strong words. appreciate you being with us. coming up, can republicans win back the senate? we'll analyze that next with our very own bill hemmer and rnc chair reince priebus, he laid out his vision what he calls the new american renewal principles of the republican party today. he will join me exclusively.
and explain. and then later, breaking news on the ebola patient who was in isolation in a dallas hospital. we'll check in with our medical team. they're now in studio on this busy news night. a lot of people in the country are afraid of ebola. do you have a reason to fear? and is the government really telling the truth? we'll examine that tonight on "hannity."

welcome back to welcome back to "hannity." here we are 33 days away from the midterm elections and the control of the senate remains uncertain. here tonight at the "hannity" big board to lay out exactly where things stand regarding the balance of power, america newsroom, our own bill hemmer. how are you? >> hi, sean. nice to see you. >> you are the expert, we call the "hannity" big board. >> i call it the billboard. is that all right? >> listen, you're better than i am. >> here's what we wanted to lay out for you, the whole contest
3rks 2, 33 days from now with the balance of power and congress specifically on the senate. ignore all the numbers on the board and just think about this one here. if the republicans want to pick up the majority in the senate, they need six states. so here's what we did. go to the maps right here. there are in all practicality 16 races that are competitive right now. you're at 55-45 democrats to republicans. what's the scenario at the moment? if you were to -- republicans think the polling has been very favorable to them in a certain part of the country, one of which is west virginia, they would they can as 46. they feel very good about south dakota. your at 47. they feel very good about montana, 48. >> those i would argue slam dunks. >> based on polling positions i think a lot of republicans would feel the same. right now the polling is favorable in arkansas. the polling is favorable in louisiana.
we'll see what mary landrieu does down there. and then you're at 50-50. so this past week the polling has broken towards joni ernst in the state of iowa. that would give you your majority. >> i'm going for 52 here. >> all right. in colorado. >> yep. >> the republicans really like their candidate. he's made it very competitive against mark udahl in colorado. i'll throw another one in for you, okay. at 1:00 a.m. eastern time. >> yeah. >> on election night, the aleutian islands close. >> yeah. >> that's when you'll be able to call alaska. >> i've got -- >> if it goes from blue to red and they beat vegas and dan sullivan goes to the u.s. senate -- >> i think cory gardner wins here. >> if that's the case, you're at 53-47. >> right now that's what i have. that's my prediction. >> can i take a few back? >> whoa. you can't take it back. you just gave it to me. >> let's just say alaska doesn't break their way. let's say colorado doesn't break their way. let's say iowa doesn't break their way. you're back to 50/50.
so what's the democratic strategy right now? if you've been following this they think in the center part of the country they can turn kansas from red to blue, they've got an independent candidate by the name of greg norman giving pat roberts a challenge. >> but there is interesting things about him. he won't even say who he's going to caucus with. everybody knows it's the democrats. >> this is true. he's not gone on record about keystone pipeline. >> also harry reid asked the democratic candidate in that race to get out so they could support the so-called independent. so i think that would be a blue pickup. >> okay. all right. i'll give that to you for the sake of this discussion tonight. but getting a lot of headlines just the past week as orman has about a five-point lead in some of this polling. democrats will tell you they've got far more money than republicans. they also believe in their ground game. and that's what they're hoping for. >> well, the ground game obviously helped in 2008, 2012. republicans supposedly made some changes, they think their ground game has improved. whether or not it's enough, i don't know. where are we in north carolina?
>> north carolina right now, kay hagan is running a pretty good campaign. she is up about four or five points depending which poll you look at. republicans really like the candidate tom tillest, speaker of the house. they like him. they think they should be doing better there. they spent a lot of money, both sides, republicans and democrats, millions and millions of dollars in north carolina. but kay hagan has an edge. >> i'm going blue -- wait, it's red. it's not working for me. what is this? >> now you can go. >> thanks a lot. i'm going here. >> colorado. >> too close to call. i'm going there. at least 52-48 depending on what happens here. this is an outside shot. new hampshire's an outside shot. those are the two i would be -- >> 53-47 in early october. >> either 52 or 53 is my guess. >> all right. >> bill hemmer, good to see you, buddy. appreciate it. all right. we have a lot more coming up here. now, as republicans work to gain control of the senate, republican national committee chair reince priebus is now laying out what he calls the party's 11 principles for american renewal.
earlier today he delivered a speech at george washington university to explain. let's take a look. >> our party's three core values have long been a strong economy, a strong society and a strong defense. the principles of american renewal, which i'm outlining today, fit into those three categories. they represent ideas from across our party. these 11 principles unite us as a party and inform our policymaking. these principles cover 11 vital topics. jobs, spending, health care, our veterans, national security, education, poverty, values, energy and immigration. >> joining me now to talk about his party's strategy for winning come november 4th is the chairman of the republican national committee reince priebus with us. sir, how are you? >> i'm doing great, sean. how are you? >> all right. first i got to say, i have been the biggest critic of
republicans because i've been saying you guys need a governing vision that will inspire people. you didn't follow my model, so i criticize you for that. no, i'm kidding. but there are a lot of good things in here. i think it's important -- i think this has been missing from the debate that is what will republicans do if they get control of the house or senate? are you saying this renewal or principles for renewal is the blueprint and you want americans to know this? >> well, that's right. i mean, this idea that we're the party of no and we're just against obama, that's ridiculous. you're absolutely right. you've been pounding this drum now for about nine months. and if you look at your five principles, sean, school choice, energy independence, the penny plan, balanced budget amendment, they all fit nicely into these same principles. in fact, i think four out of five of them are right here verbatim. i think that that's what america needs to see.
we have a responsibility. and i agree with that too as a party to tell people what we're for. we also have a responsibility to try to unite our party. i mean, we've got a lot of different voices. and i'm proud to say as far as party unity and this document and this vision, everyone from mike lee to john boehner to ted cruz, you know, to mitch mcconnell, to newt gingrich, they're on board with what we're doing. and social conservatives like tony perkins and others, they're on board as well. so we're unifying the party, telling people what we're supporting. it's important. >> i don't see anything here that's divisive. in other words, look. this is a coalition party like the democratic party. you have the tea party, the conservative wing of the party. you have the more -- i know they hate the word -- establishment wing of the party. first of all, i think you outdid me because the constitution does in this day and age under obama needs to be preserved, valued and honored. this president in my view has
run rough shot over the constitution. so i was glad you put that in there. the economy, i know you didn't put in my penny plan, but a balanced budget amendment is imperative. we've got to stop robbing our kids blind. >> well, i like the penny plan myself. i mean, as far as like specific types of litigation, i support that. but, you know, look, what's also important is give the american people a choice. so if you go look at school choice, every parent, what our party stands for is every parent in this country ought to be able to send their son or daughter to the school of their choice. no parent should be forced to send their child to a failing school. now, to most people that seems like a pretty reasonable thing to say. but that's not what the democrats believe. they would tell you that your child is doomed to the school that their zip code dictates. that's a choice. you know, things like the message on the economy. well, at first glance you say, what we're saying is that we want to grow america's economy, not washington's economy so that american workers get a leg up. now, again, another reasonable
thing and position for us to take. but that's not where the democrats are at. they want to plant the seeds here in washington on concrete where they can't grow. and no matter what your position is on the growth of government, i think people across this country know that government has failed them. it's too big. it's gotten out of control. they go back to the constitution. >> i think this is a pivotal moment in our history. so i applaud you for doing it. and, mr. chairman, thank you for being with us. >> thank you. >> coming up, 100 people may have been exposed to the patient diagnosed with ebola in texas. now, is government being totally honest with the american people about ebola? our panel of doctors, they respond next. and later, dick morris here in studio with some eye opening information about hillary clinton and her ties to a left wing organizer by the name of sal olinsky. that and more coming up straight ahead. that and more ahead. bonjour. c? bonjour. comment ce va?

welcome back to "hannity." now, despite assurances that it was very unlikely that the deadly ebola virus would reach our shores, the first case of ebola currently devastating west africa has now been confirmed in dallas, texas. texas officials have announced 100 individuals may have been exposed to that patient. and health officials describe the process of containing any future infected individuals at a press conference earlier today. take a look. >> we will determine if a person showed some type of signs or symptoms at that point we will get them to the appropriate hospital. at this time all our hospitals are set up to be able to deal with that process. but to give you a specific location i can't do that since we don't have that issue at this moment. >> here with reaction in studio from the fox medical a-team, dr. marc siegel, dr. mark braverman is with us and dr. nina radcliffe is also with us. saudi arabia's banned visitors from ebola-ravaged nations.
we now know air france said no, is not flying to these nations. great britain's not flying to these nations. have we made a mistake by allowing people to come in from these countries? >> we have to be realistic. this virus is part of our world today. we have to understand we need to learn how to deal with it when it comes to our borders, and that's what we're doing. we have a coordinated response by the centers for disease control. >> but why did great britain and france and saudi arabia do this? >> listen, sean, the numbers are still pretty small, but we have to manage the fear factor here. let me explain what i mean by that. first thing we should be doing is taking temperatures on people coming here from west africa. >> they did. >> but they're taking temperatures of people when they leave west africa. i want them to use that gun infrared temperatures when people come in here. that's number one. >> why not let them in until they solve their problems? >> okay. let me address that. the numbers, just the pure numbers, don't allow for that because their numbers are small. but as long as we're going to panic here, we should do that. so i have two minds of this. medically, scientifically, the
numbers much more likely someone coming in with malaria. >> dr. braverman? >> but from the fear point of view we should do it. >> dr. braverman? >> the incubation period is so long in some case, 80 days, that you cannot block essentially pandemics like this. the lessons to be learned our hospitals are spend together much time on chronic illness and dying people, instead of letting them die at home. we have ethical problems spending hundreds of thousands in the last six months of life. and they cannot take on these cases. and they're going to make mistakes. >> here's the question i have, should we be preventing people from countries with high incidences into this country? >> obviously we should. >> we should allow them in? >> we should not let them in. temporarily. >> i agree. and also still understand that's not going to solve the problem. problem rely on the forms, you still have to have good medical care. you have to have hospitals that are not tied up on endless number of sometimes unnecessary testing. >> wow. >> and you have treatments. >> last
quick answer each. is this going to be a big problem? >> i think we have those systems in place and they've been prepared for years on how to eradicate it. i think we're going to squash it. >> a big problem? >> it's going to be a problem of some epidemic or another because our immune system is not ready, sexuality, hygiene and everything else will eventually be a problem. >> unless somebody is sick, we can control it, contain it, the cdc, not the federal government, not obama, the cdc is doing a great job. we will not see an epidemic here. >> all right, doctors. good to see you. glad you're not here to give me heart resuscitation. >> you don't need it. >> thank you. >> coming up, recently uncovered letters between hillary clinton and left wing organizers saul alinsky have surfaced, and they have reveal his true left wing and her true left wing ideology. former clinton adviser breaks that down next. turn the trips you have to take,

welcome back to "hannity." previously unpublished correspondence between hillary clinton and the late left wing organizer saul alinsky. in a 1971 letter, hillary rodham clinton wrote to alinsky asking him about his latest book because she needed, quote, new material to throw at people. so is this a rare glimpse into hillary clinton's true left wing radical philosophy? joining me now the author of "power grab: obama's dangerous
plan for a one-party nation." former adviser dick morris. by the way, you can get it at dickmorris.com, amazon and bookstores everywhere. >> i believe that the entire country, me included, made a mistake in 2008 in not listening to you when you kept pushing the connection between bill aayers and barack obama. we all dismissed it as guilt by association and everything. now it's time to listen. when you combine four fax. hillary began her legal career as an intern for a communist law firm. the head of the california communist party. not fellow traveler, communist. secondly, that she is one of the group of interns who volunteered to help the black pen theirs during their trial. thirdly, that she maintained this very, very close relationship with alinsky. and fourthly, that she went to work for the watergate committee and stole documents from it to try to prejudice nixon's case to
make it impossible to have him as lawyer -- to have a lawyer. so when you put that together, you really need to ask if hillary is at heart a real radical. >> you know, i was told at the time by prominent conservatives that i was ruining my career. >> yes, i know. >> by raising those questions. let's talk about this book. it's very similar. i think we didn't examine obama's background. i think everything that we predicted and then some has now come true. are you saying the same thing? >> no, no. >> you think hillary supports that too with the power grab? >> no, but this goes much further. >> explain. >> i believe that i found the reason behind obama's plan. i believe obama -- we have socialist, european, all that stuff. but what he really wants to do is stack the deck to assure permanent democratic party control over the country, a one-party democracy like mexico had and japan has had. and everything he is doing has to be seen in that light and
counted in that light. that's why he wants to open the borders. that's why he is letting in 100,000 syrian refugees. that's why he wants everybody to be in a labor union. it's why he fights hard against photo id. it's why he has obamacare. >> transform america. >> so everybody is on the dole and on his thing. and that's why he wants judicial confirmations without a filibuster to rubber stamp what he is doing and to concentrate power in the hands of the president. because he knows that congress will be likely republican because of low turnout. >> thing is a must-read because of that reason. because i think he does want to radically transform america. >> that's what ties it all together. >> dick, i've got to run. i'm out of time. dickmorris.com, on amazon.com, bookstores everywhere. >> thank you. >> coming up, more "hannity" straight ahead. dad, i know i haven't said this often enough, but thank you.
