[rooster crowing] >> good saturday on your holiday weekend. great to be with you on "fox & friends." a couple guys on the couch who have never been here before leland and connell. >> did you have a nice holiday. >> fabulous holiday. >> absolutely, loved christmas. >> especially in the city, right? we will be getting to know both of these guys later in the show soccer dad. outpouring support for are one of new york city's police officers assassinated in his patrol car last week. thousands lining the streets for blocks to pay their solemn respects to raffaele ramos. >> in a sea of blue, some waiting as long as six hours
to get inside the christ tabernacle ghurch queens, new york, more than 650 officers from around the country flying in on free flights offered by jetblue. inside the church, a heart breaking moment as officer ramos' son said good by to his father. >> dad, i will miss you with every fiber of my being. >> my heartaches so much right now. please pray for belief as i know -- me as i -- >> new york city mayor bill de blasio is also expected to speak. boy, that's powerful with the son speaking, his older son. the focus today i guess will be especially on what the mayor, given what he has gone through has to say at the this service. >> his office did confirm last night that he will be speaking at the funeral today.
many are shae saying should he be speaking in the first place given the gap that is between the community and city hall and nypd. and yesterday we want to show you you a banner that flew along the hudson river, a grouch current and former police officers had this banner flying it said bill de blasio, our backs have turned on you. and they went all the way from the bridge up the george washington bridge up the hudson river and flew for hours. >> put about $1,000 together current and former cops i believe to do that once you have lost and it looks like the mayor has. once you have lost the support of your own police department in a city like this, it's very, very difficult to govern. he has had opportunities to say or change the tone of the way he addresses the situation over the last week. he really hasn't done it i'm not sure that he will today. >> one of those in law enforcement sergeant ed mullins the president of the sergeant's benevolent association says he is standing his back on the mayor and he stands by that. this is why. >> you look at the mayor's track record, nowhere along
the line did he ever have any kind of a background. it was on the side of law enforcement. he has always been divirve when it came to law enforcement and the community. and it's only as result of these two officers being killed is the mayor now making statements that we need to comply with lawful orders and respect our police. it hasn't been the case in the past. and as far as turning my back on the mayor along with other cops, i stand by that. i think that the mayor needs to lead and he is not doing that right now. >> he said such an important word there in terms of the mayor needs to lead. you think about this in contrast to the past two mayors. rudy giuliani, michael bloomberg who truly had the love of the nypd. we saw giuliani after 9/11 and you saw of think about the fact that you had somebody who has lost the trust of those who are in charge of keeping us all safe here. and that is a dangerous situation for public safety in the event something else really much bigger happens. >> bill de blasio has been a
huge champion of having all the presses going on in new york city but even on christmas eve when he asked the protesters to press pause they defied him. so even they appeared, some of his base appeared to turning on him. >> his constituents in this case. >> we would like to you weigh in on this and what you think about the mayor's appearance today. facebook question whether mayor de blasio should be attending the funeral of ramos today. go to our facebook page and weigh in on that. whether he should be attend something one question. the other side of it if he didn't attend he would be hammered whether f. he didn't attend. whether he should be speaking. differing opinions. this is our moment moment. we want to have our moment with our fallen brothers. >> there was a petition by a lot of officers to sign a piece of paper saying if something happens to me i don't want the mayor here. a lot of them signed up on that. >> at the same time we have to remember that this police officer was a husband and a father and needs to be what
his family wants and not turn into a political football. >> and the family did invite the mayor and saying they were okay with him being there. >> we need to get to your news headlines. in just a few hours, this desperate search for a missing 60-year-old hiker will continue at olympic national park in washington. teams searching for him on thursday after he didn't show up for christmas eve dinner with friends. he an avid hiker but friends say he also has an old leg injury. mastermind behind the school massacre is dead. militant only known as saddam was killed during hour long shootout with forces. six of sources now interrogated about the raid. militants broke into the army run school and killed 148 people. 132 of them children. north korea hits a new low. making racist comments about

neighbors. >> no. you know our neighbors. >> since reunion brown and watson have been spending a lot of time swapping war stories. those are your headlines. >> looking at old pictures and stuff, too. >> right now hand it over to rick reichmuth with a look of the weather. >> good morning, guys. >> we have got winter returning finally. it's been so warm for so much of december. that's about to change. at least over the next couple of days and right there is the beginning of it. a cold front beginning to move through with that is some weather going on today. the eastern seaboard another niece day. the southeast mostly good except that south central part of the country is going to be dealing with some rain. we have a little bit of snow this morning across minnesota and wisconsin. it's going to be light for the most part. maybe 1 to 3 inches or so. nothing that's going to cause too many problems. go farther to the south. we have snow across places like lubbock this morning and little bit of ice. be careful on the roads. head in towards the central gulf. this is where we are going to be talking about the worst of or weather today.

here. we wouldn't have known any of this and a lot of the things about this v.a. scandal had had she not sued to try to get her job back it was only after a the judge ruled on all these things that we are learning about who knew what when. and for so long we heard from the white house and v.a., the veterans affairs administration and those folks they had no idea about these problems. we are learning from the judge and susan's lawsuit that a lot of people knew a lot more back in 2009. it's always what comes out afterwards rather than what happens in the very beginning. >> there is two ways of looking at a story like this. on the one hand she is out and people who wanted her out should be happy that she is. it's almost likes a an article i read pointed out. got al capone on taxes. if you you are on the wrong side of something they are going to get you. even if it's not on what they want to get you for. jeff miller the house veterans affairs committee is someone of them. they say they are upset with the way that she was ousted. we have a quote from said this the fact that the ruling did not connect the
central figure the v.a. scandal to any wait time scheme huge problem with the way this case was handled. absolutely critical. the v.a. takes steps to ensure these individuals are held accountable as soon as possible to the max pump extent under the law. and you understand that point but at the same time, she is out. >> yeah. similar to al capone and tax evasion or o.j. simpson with the the sports memo more beal i can't. remember sharon helmand going through all of this administrative leave her salary 170 ogrand. >> we were all paying eric shinseki had just resigned. he wasn't getting any salary. he had appealed and had they gone through his emails and more sworn testimony from him and that kind of stuff, what else might come out of this? remember, yesterday, when this story broke about the fact that this narrative was completely false, they asked the white house for comment on this. did anyone in the white house know back in 2009? were they briefed? white house says no comment. >> all right. let us know your thoughts on this story and all the
others. email us at foxnews.com or hit us up on twitter here is what is coming up on the program. it's just one of vice vice president's gaffes this year. >> i stopped in sing gore to meet with a guy lee kwan lou who most say is the wisest man in the orient. >> he wasn't the only one we have the top political gaffes of 2014 next. >> then, watch your words or fists will fly. it's the brawl in the parliament that understandably got everyone talking. ♪ ball cap ♪ don't take no cap ♪ ain't a pretty boy toy ♪ i rock steady ♪ rough and ready. ♪ work boots ♪ one blue suit i'm angela,
and i quit smoking with chantix. people who know me, they say 'i never thought you would quit.' 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. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you have 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 or history of seizures. don' 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. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea,
trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a non-smoker, that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. hi everyone and good morning, a quarter past the hour. big year for politics which means a big year for political gaffes. which ones take the top spots in 2014. fox news contributor pete snyder is here to break it all down. good morning, merry christmas. >> merry christmas, anna. >> tom harkin comparing joni ernst to taylor swift. >> joni ernst, she is really attractive. and she -- i got to thinking
i don't care if she is good looking as taylor swift or as nice as mr. rogers, but if she votes like michelle obama, she is wrong for the state of iowa. >> i wonder if she shake it off right now. >> haters going to hate. i don't even think t swift could have imagined this liberal lion would gone on a sexist screen against someone who was an iraq war vet and sitting state senator. he blew this one. >> bruce braley calling senator chuck grassley just a farmer. listen to this one. >> if you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice, or you might have a farmer from iowa who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next chair of the senate judiciary committee. >> well, it's a common
profession and people like the common folk. was this a mistake? >> look, the hawkeye state is first in the nation for caucuses but it was also ground zero in 2014 for foot in mouth disease. this blew it for braley he never really recovered after this early gaffe. >> at least bruce braley and not bruce bailey. up next number three gaffe foust barbara come stock with this remark. in her mind creating jobs means giving tax benefits to super wealthy. i don't think she has had a real job. big mistake, huh? >> look, barbara come it's stock was one of the most accomplished candidates out there male or female. former doj official, partner in a law firm. when you have a hypocritical
liberal t saying this kind of stuff, he was never able to recover. barbara won by 16 points. stomped him. >> number four, democrat alisyn lund green grimes we all remember this, the question about president obama, did you vote for him did, you not? >> did you vote for president obama in 2008 and 2012. >> you know, this election isn't about the president. it's about. >> i know. >> put kentucky tuckians? >> i was actually a delegate for clinton. i'm a clinton democrat through and through. i respect sanctity of the ballot box. >> and i'm not going to tell you, nanna nanna boo boo. she wouldn't get away from it, could she. >> this one was particularly painful. when you are sitting nominee for party. people assume you took one for the home team and voted for your sitting democratic president. this was an absolute ununforced error. chuck todd said this
disqualified grimes from the senate. >> you talk at the top about foot in mouth disease. this seems to happen a lot to our vice president joe biden, which one was his biggest gaffe? let's take a look at his best moment. >> in terms of bad loans, shy locks who took advantage of these women and men. >> i stopped in singapore to meet with a guy named lee kwan lou who most foreign policy experts arranged the world say is the most -- the wisest man in the orient. >> general dempsey's assessment of using ground troops as necessary. >> how the effort goes. >> our allies in the region were our largest problem in syria. the turks were great friends. the saudis, the elm elm rites. >> which one. >> uncle joe is the gift that keeps on giving for gaffes. it was joe biden being a single handed weapon of mass
destruction against our allies like turkey when he blamed them for getting the jay vee devices on the scoreboard. that was a foreign policy disaster from a guy who is supposed to be -- >> if you think we missed any of them, email us at foxnews.com. we will share those. here is what is coming up on "fox & friends," which saved by the bell star are we going to be talking about coming up next? here you go. >> answer me. ing a good job. i like it when my toothpaste lets me know too. that's why i went pro. go pro with crest pro-health. for an intensive clean. i can really feel it deep cleaning my mouth. for a 4x better clean try these products together. that was a great check up.

fourth day. a spokesman says he remains in high spirits and is continuing to make progress. the 41st president hospitalized tuesday after experiencing a shortness of breath. former south korea governor james b. edwards has died. edwards made history back in 1974 when he became south korea's first republican governor since the reconstruction era. he also served as the energy secretary for a couple of years in the reagan administration. leland? >> all right. people getting high while carrying a loaded gun. is does that sound like a good idea to you? well, it soon could be a reality in colorado. activists there want marijuana users to be able to obtain a con/carry gun permit. this s. this the right move. fair and balanced debate in this campaign. the organize earl for the group challenging the ban. his name is edgar and the president of the colorado state shooting association tony fabian. gentlemen, thanks so much to be here. edgar, you are the one leading the charge here to
overturn this. why is it so important for somebody who uses recreational marijuana, which obviously has become legalized there in colorado. why should she also be able to carry a gun? >> you know, for us, it's about equal rights for all gun owners. this is about individual liberty and restoring that individual liberty, taking it away from the federal government and giving it back to the people of colorado. >> all right. so, tony, what is the difference here between, say, somebody who gets high on saturday night smoking some marijuana versus somebody who goes out and has a couple of beers and then has their conceal carry gun? what's the big difference here in terms of judgment? >> well, i'm not a doctor. i'm not a scientist. i'm an attorney. we're dealing from a legal standpoint here. and in colorado, we have a dichotomy in the law. there is certain amount of marijuana that people can possess legally in colorado. but under federal law, it still is illegal. and because of that dichotomy, we can't support
this type of initiative. again, our position is not so much opposition as it is lack of support. simply because the mission of the colorado state shooting association is to provide shooting opportunities for law abiding residents of colorado. of course, because of the federal ban, that runs afoul of that mission. >> edgar, i want to let you go in here on this. in terms of the question exactly how far do gun rights god in the sense that the federal government has not yet legalized marijuana and all of a sudden you are say okay, even though somebody is breaking a federal law, albeit not a state one, why should they be allowed to carry concealed weapon. if they for example have been convicted of possession of cocaine they can't get a conceal weapons permit. >> you are asking the wrong question. i think the question is why people like mr. fabian would be in favor of infringing upon that second amendment right. last time i checked the constitution it said shall not infringe.
so sony is there an argument here and say voters voted. they should be the ones who decide who does and doesn't get to carry guns in their state? >> well, it is interesting that he sights the constitution. we have that provision in the constitution called the supremacy clause. and we have a process for enacting laws. and under the supremacy clause, federal laws, when there is is a conflict or dichotomy, federal laws trump state laws. until this dichotomy in the law is resolved marijuana possession at least under federal law is still illegal and, therefore, we have a problem. the alcohol he tobacco and firearms bureau several years ago when medical marijuana was made legal in colorado, atf came out and basically said this even
though it's being used for medicinal purpose still runs afoul of prohibition. >> big question in terms of how much enforcement is doing of those federal marijuana laws there in missouri and also out in washington state. we will see if this makes the ballot in 2016 and then what the voters out there in colorado decide. thanks so much for joining us this early morning there in denver. up next, a dramatic site, -- sight. a home on fire with a toddler inside when at the last minute he take as leap of faith. >> come out right here. your momma said do it. oh, oh, come on. >> oh my god. >> takes your breath away for a minute. hear from the man who witnessed it all. of course we will give you update on how that child is doing as he plunged from those burning fires. plus, watch your words or fists will fly. it's the brawl in the

with the mother and there is a picture of you guys at the hospital. what was that like? >> yes. that was amazing. you know, we decided to take the mother some gifts and check up on her to see how she was doing. and, you know, finding out the name of the baby, i broke. >> very emotional moment. >> what is the baby's name and how are they? >> the mother and baby are doing great and the baby's name is chris. >> understand exactly what she was saying. but she said chris as in christmas. >> chris for christmas. >> that was amazing. >> i think both of you ought to be hahn area godfathers. duel hand area welcome to college. your new roommate is mom and dad. a teenage parent's follow

people are not aware of. if we go through four or five of them. people watching might take advantage of one and help save a few bucks. let's tart with sales tax. the sales tax deduction in particular for people who are living in these states that have no state taxes? >> yeah, that's correct. so if you are living in like millions of people are living in a state with no sales tax -- excuse me no income taxes there seven of those states like florida and texas. hopefully you are taking a divungz for the sales tax that you are paying. that deduction ends at the end of the year. the advice that i have for you. if you are thinking of buying a big ticket item like a car or refringe rarity and living in one of seven states with no income tax. buy that stuff now so you can fully take advantage of sales tax deduction before the year ends. >> let me ask you about education. higher education and the deduction there for students and i'm sure some parents watching would want to know what they should be taking advantage of before the year runs out. >> right. many of us are allowed to take a deduction for tuition
if you are paying higher education. trade school, technical school and expenses like books, for example, can you deduct up to $4,000 for that every year. unfortunately, that deduction is going away at the end of 2014. so, if you have the ability to prepay any of that tuition. get it into this year now so you can fully take advantage of the tax deduction. >> all right. small mentioned coming in you are a small business owner yourself a lot of people watching same spot. what do they need to know? >> there is a big deduction for small businesses that that's pretty much going away at the end of this year. most small business owner like to buy computers or deduct up to half a million dollars of that equipment right away without depreciating it that deduction is going away at the end of this year. so, if you are a small owner, you are thinking of buying that computer or piece of equipment, buy it now before the end of the year so you can fully take advantage of that deduction
because i don't think that's going to be around in 2015. >> that's what i'm talking about where people may have owned a business for years and they don't know about the changes that have happened. next thing you know the clock runs out and expires man, i should have done that classroom for teachers. another one that's very important. what do they need to know? >>. teachers, like, for example, my wife is a school teacher as well in philadelphia. a lot of times teachers take money out of their own pockets to pay for classroom expenses. not uncommon. book, supplies for their kids. can you conduct $250 if you do that on your own. however, that deduction is expiring at the end of december. if you are a school teacher, spend the money now, up to $250. can you take that deduction now. don't wait until 2015. because that deduction is going away. >> finally, gene, everybody knows you can write off a the love charitable deductions. in particular for people who are a little on the older side they may want to listen up this year; is that right? >> yeah. that's right. if you are over 70 years old. 70 and a half years old. you could pull money out from your retirement
account, ira. that money is taxable to you. however, if you take that same money and give it to a charity before the end of the year, it's not taxable to you at all. so, if you are thinkingful giving money away to a charity and pulling money out -- actually your ira? do it now before the end of the year. you can have no taxes on that and give it to the charity of your choice. >> no doubt you helped out a few people. that's all that matters. happy new year, gene, thanks for coming on. >> happy new year, i hope i saved you some money. >> pakistan is furious with a u.s. television series. why that country is calling out show times homeland this morning. you have got to hear this to believe it out of pakistan. kate middleton getting a brand new crown. we will tell you the list she is topping this morning. keep it here. ♪ i know it's going to be ♪ a lovely day ♪ a lovely day ♪ and the winner

[ laughter ] >> we will get to that in about 30 minutes. right now we need to start with this fox news alert. an outpouring of support for one of new york city police officers assassinated in his patrol car last week. thousands lining the streets for blocks to pay their solemn respect informs officer ramos. in a sea of blue. some waiting as long as six hours to get inside the
christ tabernacle church in queens, new york. more than 6 auto officers from around the country flew in on free flights offered by jetblue airlines. inside the church, a heart-breaking moment as officer ramos' son said a final goodbye to his father. >> dad, i will miss you -- i will miss you with every fiber of my being. >> for my brother my heartaches right now. please pray for me as i know you are always there. >> funeral service will be held later today where vice president joe biden is among those that are going to speak. new york city mayor bill de blasio also expected to both attend the funeral and speak as well. i know as much as people will focus on that. the family going through this is really driven home when you watch the son. older two sons that officer ramos has speaking at the service yesterday. >> we do want to remember this police officer is not just a man in uniform.
is he a father of two. and a husband. and we don't want that to be diminished at all. >> a family man and a hero in so many ways. a man of faith we have heard from his pastor and from members of that church. you get a sense sort of though how this has taken on such a political meaning when you see now that there are banners flying above the city of new york talking about this case. de blasio, our backs have turned to you was paid for by former police officers, current police officers, they paid about a thousand dollars and, of course, that's a reference to the fact that at the hospital, when bill de blasio showed up after these two officers were shot, a number of the officers there in the hospital turned their backs as he walked down the hallway. it was a powerful sign of how they feel. >> and there is even a petition that's been going around from some police officers saying if i die in the line of duty, i too not want mayor bill de blasio to be attending my funeral. i mean, it's just -- check out this video. with their backs being turned there. >> that's remarkable.
and i think unprecedented in this city or really any other cities to see police officers literally turn their backs on a mayor as they did. the union official that's been getting the most attention is a guy named pat lynch in new york the head of the pba the patrolman benevolent association for years. ed mullins on the sergeant's union was i believe at the hospital that night and among those organizing that and among those who turned their back on de blasio. he doesn't back away from that he still believes that was the right thing to do. this is what he said on fox news. >> you look at the mayor's track record nowhere along the line did he ever have any kind of a background that was on the side of law enforcement. he has always been divisive when it came to law enforcement and the community. and it's only as a result of these two officers being killed is the mayor now making statements that we need to comply with lawful orders and respect our
police. it hasn't been the case in the past. and as far as turning my back on the mayor along with other cops, i stand by that. i think that the mayor needs to lead and he is not doing that right now. >> let's remember this is happening here in our backyard in new york city. nypd and what happens in america's largest city sets the tone for what goes on across the country. and this huge rift between communities and cops. and these anti-cop protesters and people taking to social media and doing all that is a lot more than just words and marching. we saw a woman in mass misthrowing pork chops at cops calling them pigs. a woman pointing a gun at cops in hollywood. there needs to be more respect for police officers. >> we have seen what's happened in st. louis and berkeley, california with looting and anger. they were throwing fire crackers at the police just a couple days ago after they shot a gun at.
>> now on the other side of it i did see in one of the stations somebody who had been out protesting, you know, that was out at the garner protest and then went to the wake yesterday. it was an older man who said you know what? i wanted to be there to show that the people, yeah, i still believe that there was injustice done on staten island to this man eric garner but at the same time the way to handle that wasn't by asass is sinating these police officers. it was one person. but it's a good example of, you know. >> that type of class seems to be sorely missing on a larger sense. >> agreed. >> the larger question of the day is about mayor bill glaza gloz: of course he should attend, especially if the officer's family is also with it. apparently they are. >> marianne from facebook, no, the police officers turning their back on him spoke volumes and the police who put up that big banner the reason they did it is
well bill de blasio turned his backs on us. >> keep your comments coming. we will tell you about these comments now. the desperate search for missing 60-year-old hike ler continue in washington. he left his team on monday and teams have been searching for him since thursday after he didn't show up for christmas dinner with friends. he also has an old leg injury. tragic end to the search for a miss cruise ship worker. clifford found dead. washed ashore this beach tampa florida. police have been searching for the 27-year-old man from india for days after he vanished from the holland america cruise ship he works on. they think he fell off that boat. search is on for cold-blooded cop killer hiding in cuba. fbi and police hoping cubans will try to catch in on

of the east. florida 64 in tampa. pretty clear day across much of florida including across much of eastern seaboard. head down across parts of the central gulf watch some problems. then into the northern plains we have snow he this morning across parts of wisconsin. exiting minnesota. leave 1 to 3 inches of snow. maybe a couple isolated areas seeing more than that also had snow adoes the panhandle of texas, in across parts of western oklahoma. but this will become much heavier rain throughout the day today and tomorrow across the central gulf. some areas 3 to a inches of rain. cause localized flooding. take a look at temperatures this week. very cold air begins to funnel in. notice that by monday. 4 degrees for a high in fargo, 2 for your high on tuesday. in denver. so the cold air will come back it will get to the east coast eventually just enjoy the next couple days. >> all right, rick. thanks so much. >> we have been talking about north korea and their thoughts on the movie the interview and the backlash on all of that pakistani
officials are furious at the producer show time hit television show "homeland." because they are saying they are being portrayed undemocratic and aligning themselves with terrorists. >> that's strange. shocking. >> the country that was hiding usama bin laden? >> if the shoe fits -- not. >> this is hollywood, right? this is not some parts of the unknown with anthony bore deign or something on the travel channel or some documentary. this is tv. this is make believe anyway. sometimes the facts actually aligning beverage, you know, harboring potentially harboring usama bin laden and not helping the united states. >> and sometimes truth if tiction sometimes have a way of intersecting here in terms of this. take a look at the clip that they are so upset about. >> we are taking casualties, hurry. send a blah tune. >> all right. sit tight. we are on our way.
>> what are you doing? >> thinking. >> 10 minutes. then you can make the call. the americans have insinuated themselves into others. it's time to get a dose of their own medicine is discipline are you really so naive? >> me? i'm not the one who keeps insisting the enemy is our friend. >> portraying islamabad as a war zone with bodies everywhere and being an ugly drab place. no, there is beautiful picturesque mountains and lush greenery and that's what you should be showing off. >> most upset i think by the fact that you have characters there, the american cia going back to the embassy and then when the explosion happens that's the pakistani intelligence played by their point would be we would never do that in
real life. we wouldn't help the americans. >> think about all times the u.s. militaries complained about the pakistanis helping them out. this is what the embassy spokesman had to say. maligning the country close partner and ally of the u.s. is a disservice not only to the security interest of the u.s. but also the people of the united states you have to wonder here how much truth is in this. pakistani relationship. the doctor who helped the cia with usama bin laden still in prison. the attacks on the cia there. here is the doctor still in prison. that is solely up to the pakistani government. they keep him there. th imprison terrorists there. but they are more than happy to imprison people who help try to catch terrorists in their own country. >> that's what so different about the north korean situation in this movie the interview. which by the way i watched about an hour of yesterday. it's like 6 bucks. >> you watched the whole thing. >> not yet.
>> i will laugh at anything i have the humor of 8-year-old maybe a 12-year-old. funny in parts. it's so stupid. so obviously over the top maybe not for them but so stupid that everybody knows it's a joke. whereas homeland is supposed to be based more on real life to your earlier points things like this similar to this really have happened. >> picking at every little thing too. the achives are speaking their narve local tongue there. not the way that a local would speak. they are speaking the native language the way that an american would. well, that's because they are american. >> sometimes the truth hurts. >> all right. let us know your thoughts on this story and all the others. email us friends at fox news. still ahead on "fox & friends." tv terrorists real thing. al qaeda still spewing hate. latest newsletter detailing how to blow up an airplane. disgusting story coming up. plus it's the ultimate christmas surprise.

in my opinion, i think she has to look at the threat itself. if the threats are considered real, which i think think they are. flight risk. i would have remanded them and hopefully the mayor is going to look at this and if he doesn't, i think the state legislators should look at it. because somebody makes a -- you can't have people making threats like this against society, against the police, against law and order. and then believe that they should be back out in the public. >> especially in this environment. after what we have been through in the last week. one thing comes in isolation a threat made against somebody and nothing else surrounding it. after those two police officers are asass sin nateed that has to -- >> continued threat. instagram, assassin killed cops 2151 likes. people are agreeing with that assassination. you have to start thinking about society in general and
what we are facing in the future. >> in a larger sense,, you have this tinderbox become right now. does somebody like mayor de blasio have the responsibility to set a tone here that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and the judge for that matter have a larger civic responsibility to set that tone. if they did, do you think things would change? >> the mayor has to lead and has to set the tone. the judge is bound by law. but, personally, i think there is ways to look at this, look at those threats and take the aappropriate action. i think the mayor is going to have to look at the judge. and if the judge can't be removed for whatever reason, i think the mayor has to go to the state legislators and get the law changed. >> it would be olive branch though that the mayor could do by getting her out. >> that's one of the things the mayor could do. the mayor could really be out there supporting the
cops far better than he has been. and set a tone all this lawlessness has to stop. >> can he change the tone today? at a setting like this where he is attending the funeral? >> i think he is trying. but i also believe that has lost some control. i mean, these protesters are still out there. protesters went to the actual memorial last week, the other day. and protests continue it's got to stop. it's got to stop and he is is the person that can really stop it. >> former new york police commissioner bernie kerik, thank you. >> thanks, guys. >> you wait all week for payday when this happens. your money gets deposit bitted instead of deposited. what went wrong that left this huge headache. >> then, welcome to college. your new roommate? your mom and dad. >> no! >> no! >> these parents are following her to school. is this the ultimate

quitting smoking this time was different because i got a prescription for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. the fact that it reduced the urge to smoke helped me get that confidence that i could do it. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking 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 or history of seizures. don' 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 develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i love myself as a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. with contour detect technology that flexes in 8 directions

i still am on campus, meeting new people and having college experiences. i ham to live at home too. >> in fairness, some people live at home and commute to college. save some money. just so happens you are in another city. lori, when people hear about the story, people who have gone away to college their first reaction is oh my goodness i don't want my parents following me. leave me alone and give me time on my own. no doubt you have heard that from some people. >> yeah. definitely. she is a sophomore so she did have the freshman experience last year all by herself. but my husband and myself had always wanted to travel. so what we considered is while she was gone her freshman year, we looked at what we wanted to do and how we wanted to expand who we were and we really decided we wanted to do what we call a gap year, which is kind of escape denver, we are denver natives. looked at going down south and going to the beach and everything. and when we introduced the idea to her daughter. we'll just kind of started
talking and came up with this idea of moving up here because we had never been to the pacific northwest before. so this gives us an opportunity to travel to see you this things up here too. >> so, to be fair, you are not there 24 hours a day, seven days week. you are getting that add vane temperature and being financially free to be able to do so since you are sharing expense, which is pretty cool. would you recommend this to other families to do? >> oh, definitely. you know, i mean we have the freedom of being able to work from a laptop from the computer. we can take our business wherever we go. i think that's been the most fun. we can just come and go as we please. obviously she is an adult and she can come and go as she pleases. it's been a great experience. and also it gets her off campus, too. because, you know, living in a dorm without a car, which is what they typically recommend, she couldn't really do all that traveling. and she has seen more in the last couple months than she saw last year. >> who are we to judge in some ways, i think. real quick fallon to let you go. mom said it's a gap year. is she invited back for
junior year or are we on the fence about that? >> we haven't really discussed it yet because i still have next semester to go but i have enjoyed the experience. >> sounds good, mom. >> yeah. >> you might get the invite. >> sounds like they both rule the roost. >> whatever works. coming up, a veteran's therapy dog stolen right out of his yard. now he is trying to get his best friend back. we will tell you how you can help. >> he is the new face you have been seeing all morning. >> who is connell mcshane? >> and who are those people with him? we will give you inside look next. >> first we will check in with eric bolling for a look what's coming up on cashing in. >> hey guys, hustlers beget dead cops. free market under attack. we refuse to slip silently into 2015. hottest debated on cable "cashin' in" 11:30. ctile dysfun-

[crying]
i love you. >> played it cool like no big deal. son is the creator of a popular phone application so he offered up the surprise in an average looking envelope filled with a note and some documents your house is paid off merry christmas, joe. >> that's some son. now you kind of feel like a slacker. >> we haven't had christmas yet. you are going to regift something. >> much going to decide to be honest here. coming up from cyber attacks to traders spilling americans' secrets. these are just some of the threats of the year. how safe are we going to be in 2015. and what do we need to look out for? we will tell you next. >> plus, call it the unbreakable building. had high rise just refusing to crumble. >> oops.

and private sector. inspect adversaries. >> iran who we are negotiating. the administration is not holding a tough enough line. >> if things keep going as they are, you will see iranian threat bigger than ever next year. that's because the nuclear program is expanding. probably outsourcing some of the work to north korea. as western businesses become involved in iran and saving their economy in the regime. you have a even stronger regime than did you before. >> this isn't something we talked about much in terms of the bad side of this. right now oil is at all-time low or low for very long time since 2009. 50-plus dollars a barrel that could change very quickly with countries like russia, venezuela, and, of course, iran. >> right. these countries need the price of oil to be very high in order to sustain their current budgets. otherwise, they have to cut the budgets and then become destabilized. these countries need to raise the price of oil. they could that through a conflict and perhaps even through a terrorist attack on middle eastern oil
infrastructure. >> gotcha. speaking of this in terms of the middle east, the terror safe havens around the middle east, a lot of folks say they are growing, somalia. failed state in libya. ice -- isis in syria bastes they can build. >> next generation of terrorist also continue to be born in syria where the civil war is going to continue. also libya another civil war you don't hear too often about. the u.s. withdrawal from afghanistan is going to open up another opportunity for terrorists to establish a safe haven. >> and as we are seeing now with the rise of the lone wolf attacks. there is a lot of folks in the united states now getting inspired by magazines reading on the gort. they are being self-radicalized as we have seen in australia and seen in canada. we are not immune to these kind of homegrown threats. >> the matt just shows that the threat from homegrown terrorists and also abroad is increasing. we know the number of al qaeda type jihadists has doubled since 2010. the number one threat is
homegrown terrorism. >> we will see what happens or as one of my dear friends used to say don't bother worrying because you never worry about the right thing. we will see what 2015 brings to the world. thank you ryan murrow from the clarion project. thankappreciate you being here, sir. up next, how do you feel about this one? booted over beyonce. the latest scandal involving hip hop royalty it will leave you outraged. then, coming to a menu near you. calorie counts on your favorite alcoholic drinks. eke. dr. segal on deck with what you are really downing at the bar. ♪ ♪ i got a little ♪ beer money ♪ (cough, cough) mike? janet? cough if you can hear me. don't even think about it. i took mucinex dm for my phlegmy cough.

hey, everybody, welcome into to "fox & friends." thanks for spending your weekend with us. anna, leland and connell. not because veterans our heroes dying while they were waiting for care, nope. it's because she accepted beyonce tickets and a trip to disney land for her family. >> it's an incredible story. she was fired, remember, from the v.a. back a couple of months ago because of the scandal broke and they said sorry, you are running the feengsz hospital. things are terrible, you are out. then she appealed and now we are learning all of these new details about it that are coming out. a lot of details about who knew what when. judge claims appeal in 2009. a number of officials at the v.a. were told about these wait times and the problems very different than the
narrative we heard from the administration, which is oh this was an isolated incident and it was covered up in phoenix not our fault. >> the reason she is out obviously the story here in terms of she illegally accepts these gifts. you mentioned beyonce and disney land trips and all the rest of it the question is whether the end result, the ends justify the means. if the end result is more important than the reason she was kicked out. some people say she should have been kicked out because of what she did at the v.a. o.j. simpson with the sports memorabilia or al capone with the taxes. wrong side of the story sometimes eventually it comes back to bite you in one way, shape or form. the reasons maybe the people trying to push you out has to take a different avenue which is what happened here, i think being a real embowl of the failure of the veterans affair not taking care of our heroes: you would hope that there would be some justice for that actual reason. here is what congressman jeff miller the house veterans affairs committee chairman had to say about
the whole thing, the fact that the ruling did not connect the central figure of the v.a.'s wait time scandal demonstrates a huge problem with the way the case was handle. it's absolutely critical that the va takes steps to ensure these individuals are held accountable as soon as possible to the maximum extend incident the law. upset about the way it was done. almost we were talking to bernie kerik earlier about this judge, right, that sometimes you have legal reasons and he was saying the judge is following the law. so, because of that, it's hard tore mayor de blasio in this case to get rid much the judge. maybe there are reasons you can't get her on the thing you want to get her on. but the people who would everybody supportive of the va at least we got her. >> she was put on paid administrative leave. >> $170,000 is not a bad way to be investigated. remember, the head of the v.a. eric shinseki resigned
outright here. you kind of wonder if he had been forced to go through this same kind of process and scrutinized the same kind of way if we would have learned more about his behavior during his time of overseeing all the waiting lists and those kind of things. a lot clearly that we still don't know about this v.a. scandal. >> that's usually why people do resign in those situations. they know what's been going on. >> fall on the sword. >> i would rather step down now rather than go through all of that what you are talking about. >> can we make sure we don't forget this is what government run healthcare looks like. obamacare here we come. >> exactly, the v.a. is government run healthcare. >> coming up on "fox & friends," a hero in blue will be laid to rest today and set to speak at his funeral, mayor bill gloz, some of new york's finest don't want him there. should he show. governor mike huckabee joins us live to weigh in. >> then watch your words, or fists will fly. it's a brawl. in a parliament. got everyone, including us, talking. i'm angela,
and i quit smoking with chantix. people who know me, they say 'i never thought you would quit.' 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. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you have 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 or history of seizures. don' 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. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a non-smoker, that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
is a really big deal.u with aches, fever and chills- there's no such thing as a little flu. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. attack the flu virus at its source with prescription tamiflu. and call your doctor right away. tamiflu is fda approved to treat the flu in people 2 weeks and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash,
or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. ask your doctor about tamiflu and attack the flu virus at its source. hi, good morning, everyone. today is saturday, the 27th of december, 2014. i'm anna kooiman. a fox news alert. line the street to say farewell to one of new york city's finest. mayor de blasio is so it-to-speak. should he show? governor huckabee is here. >> extra dramatic rescue caught on camera you have to see. toddler left with no choice but to jump as his house goes up in flames.
>> jump. come down with your momma right here. your momma said do it. come on. >> oh my god. >> there he came. you are going to hear from the man who shot this video. tell you how the little boy is doing this morning. >> and talk about a speedy delivery. you have heard this story about a woman giving birth on a train? hear from the hero officers who helped bring that baby into the world. mornings are better with friends. good morning this is fabio and you are watching "fox & friends." >> fabio? >> i can't believe it's not butter. >> i don't care what you say, fabio, you look amazing. leeland and connell nice to have you on the coach. >> comfy. >> very nice, i like it. >> we decorated just for you. >> we may never leave. >> you are stuck with us now. >> that's all right. everybody at home you will get to know leland and
connell little bit later in the show. stay tuned for that. >> that will keep them. >> people right now are running to their television. >> blackmail photos we can show you. thousands lining the street to play their solemn respects to officer ramos. nypd officers assassinated in the patrol car last week. in an sleuth sea of blew. 650 officers from around the country flying in. free flights offered by jetblue hoorlt breaking mommy as his family says goodbye. >> dad, i will miss you with -- i will miss you with every fiber of my being. >> my heartaches so much right now. >> you can feel the pain of that family. the funeral service held later today at 10:00 a.m.
where vice president joe biden will speak. new york city mayor bill de blasio is expected to speak. a lot of police officers really have said that they wish bill de blasio wouldn't speak. they say this is a divided city. they have lost confidence in him. a number of officers, some retired and some current paid about $1,000 to fly this banner over new york city that's been flying around and the banner says de blasio our backs have turned to you they say it's because de blasio turned their backs on the police long before in terms of how he handled the eric garner case and how he was come out very strongly in many ways against law enforcement and pitted law enforcement rank and file cops against some of his policies visitation around funeral will be in queens. this was happening along the hudson river from the bridge up to the george washington bridge on the other side of the island to try to be respectful to the family many say it should be the
family who decides if mayor de blasio is going to speak there. a lot of police officers have very upset about it. >> yes, they are. and you mentioned turning their back on a mayor. once you are the mayor of any city, but particularly big city like, this you lose as mayor de blasio appears to lose a large part of your police department is very difficult to govern. so we will see what he says today in terms it of the tone. it's a funeral. so how much -- you certainly want to keep politics out of it ed mullins the head of the sergeant's benevolent association one who turned his back on the mayor last saturday. he spoke to fox news about that and whether he had maybe changed his mind. well, here he is. >> you look at the mayor's track record. nowhere along the line did he ever have any kind of a background. it was ons side of law enforcement. he has always been divisive when it came to law enforcement and the community. and it's only as a result of these two officers being killed is the mayor now making statements that we need to comply with lawful
orders and respect our police. it hasn't been the case in the past. and as far as turning my back on the mayor along with other cops, i stand by that. i think that the mayor needs to lead and he is not doing that right now. >> if you look at this as the glass half full hopefully can use this as a olive branch and many say it's a lose lose situation. if he didn't show up, if he didn't speak, he would be raked over of the coals, too. >> remember a couple of times that he has sponel after these presses remember he also asked for calm. he said we need to stop protesting until these officers have been laid to in terms of what's been going on the streets of no. the protesters didn't listen to him. you have to wonder how much is he going to be able to say here to actually change. this especially when you had police officers at the hospital when these officers were shot literally turn their backs as he walked out of that hospital.
>> yeah. there were protests that night after he made those comments. there will be, at least the expectation is presses today in parts of the city. even as the funeral is going on. you are absolutely right. there is probably not much he can say to change their behavior at this point. at the same time, he has had opportunities over the last week to change the tone of the way he addresses the situation. right in mayor giuliani and others have called for him to apologize to the police officers. >> he has had the opportunity. he hasn't taken it. >> i don't know if anybody expected him to apologize to it at least change the tone to say listen, i still sympathize with protesters and cause. i got your back, guys. i'm always going to be there for you. if there is anything i said that gave you impression otherwise i want to assure you that's not the case. even if he does say things similar to that his tone is not that way. >> it's a tone not just for the 8 million people who live in new york city. the ripple effects go all the way across the country with these, you know, anti-cop protesters whether they are on social media are omarching or actually threatening our men and women in uniform and
hollywood. we had a woman point a gun at a police officer. a woman in massachusetts throwing pork chops at a cop calling them a pig. this stuff really does matter. the tone reverberates for sure. let us know your thoughts on this story and about mayor bill de blasio, should he be speaking at this funeral. email us firstname.lastname@example.org. other stories making headlines on saturday now. in just two hours crewing will head out olympic national park for missing 60-year-old hiker jim griffin. he left for a hike monday and teams have been searching for him since thursday after he didn't show up to christmas eve dinner with friends. griffin is an avid hiker family members say he also has an old leg injury. north korea hits new low making racist comments about president obama. and blaming the u.s. for internet outages earlier this week. both men insulted the president, using a racial remark and said he is responsible for releasing the interview. north korea still denies involvement in the crippling cyber attack on sony but says the united states

>> we are taking casualties, hurry. >> send a platoon. >> all right. sit tight. we are on our way. >> what are you doing? >> i can't wait. >> run now. >> 10 minutes. then you can make the call. the americans have insinuated themselves long enough into others. it's time they get a dose of their own medicine. >> are you really so naive. >> me? i'm not the one who keeps insisting the enemy is our friend. >> that's what heather upset about. those are two, you know, the actors are two pakistani intelligence officials. that's what they're supposed to be in the car. so when the cia agents carrie and seoul from the u.s. go back to the embassy and you see the explosion. you have got two pakistani intelligence officials say
no, no, help them out. give them 10 minutes. after 10 minutes we will call and have the military come in. the pakistanis say no, we would never do that. >> the great point you bring up about the doctor who helped the cia find usama bin laden. still in jail currently. >> remember usama bin laden being where? pakistan. the doc still in jail. is he going to be there for a long time in current prison sentence. for some years the united states and its intelligence services have been begging the pakistanis to help round up parts of the terrorist organizations parts of the taliban in waziristan and pakistan and launching attacks against u.s. troops in of a. most u.s. intelligence officials will tell you for large parts of this time the pakistanis just sort of thumb their nose at the americans, give them lip service, meanwhile says no problem. we can put in prison the doctor and everybody else. >> here is what embassy spokesperson has to say about it maligning a country that has been a close partner and ally of the united states is not only a
disservice to the security interest of the united states but also to the people of the united states they are nitpicking about everything. islamabad bodies everywhere and bombs going off all the time. really a beautiful mountains, real tourist hot spot lush greenery everywhere. nitpicking with the actors not speaking with good enough ache -- accidents. that's accents. check in with facebook page. a lot of people have thoughts on this. international. this sohio is at least meant to be realistic probably the reason the pakistan is more upset or is upset stack establishes spent as much time being upset about this as they do tracking down terrorists. things might be better in their country. >> you hit that on the head. still ahead on "fox & friends." the daughter of eric garner tweeted out the address of a
cop at the scene of her father's death. so do actions like this perpetuate hate? how can we come together as a nation? governor mike huckabee is here live. >> and, as we report all the time. american politics can get pretty ugly. but you ain't seen nothing yet. take a look at this video. why this went flying between these lawmakers. ♪ next in line ♪ swing batter, batter ♪ swing batter, batter swing ♪ could protect you from cancer?

address of a police officer. that endangers not just that police officer, that endangers his family, everyone around it. her attorney claims she did not know that people were posting that link to her page. let's give her the benefit of the doubt. the fact that anybody would expose a police officer is indicative of a fact that a lot of people in our culture apparently don't understand what the police do, what sacrifices they make to be cops. they are not perfect. here is something that i point out. i dealt with death penalty cases. i had to dealt with executions. i dealt with life and death matters as a governor. i had weeks if not months to look through the files and ultimately come to a decision. i got to look at everything. you know what a cop gets a split second to make that decision in life and death. >> the one thing, governor, that was marked by your time there in arkansas is really being able to lead, to bring people together, to reach across the aisle, be it the
racial divide, the political divide. what other things like mayor de blasio speak at the funeral there is a loft controversy about that obviously his comments over the past couple of weeks have been so divisive. the police officers have so angry. is there really anything you can say bring people together rather than divide them. issue heart felt apology when he made the comment about teaching his son to be afraid of the police officers. that undermined not just one or two cops. it undermined the entirety of the new york police department which amazingly enough, is majority minority. 60% of the police officers are other than white. and it just -- it defies all common sense that a mayor would undermine his own police force and undermine the whole idea of law and order that the number one thing that a mayor, a governor, a president, anyone in executive position must do is keep order.
and he has failed to do that. >> we have seen this huge divide this icy relationship between city hall and the nypd, governor. do you have any blame to put on the police, too? the banner that was filing yesterdays the hudson river de blasio we have turned our backs on you. that's clearly how they feel. the day of the visitation, the day before the funeral, the time to do it? >> it is not. what ought to happen and somebody has to the to be the prime mover in this the mayor or the head of the police union. there needs to be some meetings in private. these are not things that can be be hashed out on the front page of the "new york times." it can't be hashed out with banners and slogans and marches. if they are serious about resolving an issue you don't do that out in public where people are screaming. do it privately where people with speak their minds,
expose their hearts and then can you have a meeting of the minds and work from there. as long as this is a public spectacle, nothing good is going to come out of it and it's got to happen where i would like to think that the mayor in his position would call in these folks and wouldn't try to justify or defend his actions. but would openly and clearly apologize and start from there. >> that would be about 180-degrees from what his position has been so far. >> a long way to go. governor, who do you have coming up on the show tonight at 8:00. >> we have a special with millennials. everyone is talking about the impact of millennials on elections and impact of government on my libels. these are people coming out of college with huge debt. the whole show is a special edition tonight just dealing with millennials. i think people will find it very enlightening. i hope they will watch. >> good. governor huckabee. >> have a good one, governor. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> you guys watched saved by the bell way back when from bay side high to the saved by the bell star just got

>> now rob o'neil is facing backlash from the pentagon possibly for revealing classified information so, is this how our military heroes should be tweeted? our -- treated? author ever the book the last rescue. howard's waston joins us. your thoughts on this? terms of what's happened now to rob o'neil. >> good morning, connell. here is my thoughts. first of all the first word is hypocrisy. these are hypocritical people. a couple years ago a movie called "act of valor" came out and showed every capability that seal team 6 has. stuff that should never be shown. hand launched observation platforms. our boats that we used to keep covers on at seal team 6 are put on the big screen and they used active duty seals for the movie. lately, oven told stories of the navy seals has come out. you have got the museum coordinator for the museum
telling everything, showing classified pictures on a documented tri. because he is friends with the ghirlt add military, nothing happens to him. a lot of active duty and retired military think this is a distraction. you want to talk about really hurting national security? >> a distraction from what? >> what has really hurt key fence and interrogation program results: we have hurt national security so much by releasing those that now i think this smoke screen is out there to shift and take our attention off of that. >> conversation -- diversion from the cia report. >> absolutely right. when we gave up the nations that let us put black sites in their country. you will have to realize they will never allow us to it could that again. in our darkest hour which will happen again. they know all we need is an administration to come along that will tell everything. >> there is also --
>> -- you want to talk about. >> i'm sorry to interrupt. there is question about the merits of the argument as well about whether rob real veeld anything he shouldn't have. he would argue he didn't. before i talked to you about that let's listen to rob in his own words. one more time this is rob o'neill. there is going to be people upset. because you can't do anything without upsetting some people. i don't know why that is. i don't believe i'm saying anything that hasn't been said and confirmed and acknowledged by high ranking officials. >> tactics, techniques and procedures, which he would tell you he has not revealed. right? i mean you in writing -- you have told your story as well and have gone through something similar, right? >> absolutely. what this comes down to is hypocritical brass. this admiral lohse that wants to condemn the seals who are v. written books and told their story. let this guy go to the members of this administration that released this report and express his displeasure to them and just like many others generals
and admirals that have been fired, retired by this administration, he would be gone, too. so, instead, let's pick on a national hero, an enlisted guy. while i'm on that. let me talk about rob for a minute. this man has been on over 100 missions. four different war zones, 12 deployments. two silver stars. for bronze stars. and our messed up country we make our heroes out of sports figures. which is fine. i love sports. roll tide. our little girls want to grow up to be like the kardashians and instead, i would want my son and most americans, you i think, would want their son to grow up to be like this man. so the fact that anybody is trying to incriminate him, prosecute him to me is appalling. >> howard wasdin. american hero in your own right. thank you for coming on this morning. >> you bet. >> two nypd officers murdered and more threats against our brave men and women in blue.
so where is the president now and how about eric holder? we'll take a closer like at that and then, remember when one school ban dollars the chick-fil-a sandwich because it was too offensive? well, we will be it was too offensive? we'll be breaking down the top five culture stories of the years ♪ a pair of jeans would fit just right ♪ ♪ and the radio on [sound of crickets] brii,brii,brii

sandwich -- >> by the fox news contributor todd starnes. all right. a chaplain was punished for sharing his faith at a suicide prevention class, a very being story for my readers, and people were so outraged by the fact that a chaplain in the military could be punished for talking about religion. >> he had the audacity to share hi own experience with depression and house his faith helped him. what is a chaplain supposed to do expert to share -- whether they have faith or no faith. >> pretty fired up. >> absolutely. >> i write in this book that examines this culture war. and people are really concerned that the military has turned
into a sore engineering petrie dish. we need to move on to number four, which is public schools. a big story has the marginalization of christianity. one of our stories involves a farm school in north carolina. 24er7 teaching islam and during any english class. >> but don't let a santa claus or christmas tree be on the scene. >> and the liberals all have the problem with the plump chicken breast number two, a bid to drop pastors' sermons, and a toorge took his great-grandmother to the senior prom. he says, all right, this is what i'm going to do.
>> they even danced to a song that her husband -- that was their song "kisses of dolores." >> you can see everybody watching there. >> and ladies, he's still single. >> all right. thank you so much. coming up. pakistani leaders are curious with the show "homeland" but weren't they the ones who had osama bin laden hiding right under that you are noses. welcome to college. a teenager parents follow her to school. our parents panel have a lot to say about this. is it hell copters family or good family bonding? ame's louis,
and i quit smoking with chantix. i had tried to do it in the past. i hadn't been successful. quitting smoking this time was different because i got a prescription for chantix. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. the fact that it reduced the urge to smoke helped me get that confidence that i could do it. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking 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 or history of seizures. don' 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 develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams.
good morning. today is saturday, the 27th of december, 2014. a fox news alert. you're looking live at new york's finest as they gather to bid farewell to one of their own murdered in the line of duty. then pakistani leaders are furious with the hit show "homeland" over the way their nation is portrayed. weren't they the ones who had oosama bin laden hiding under their nose for years. they never heard from each other again. it turns out they had been living right next door to each other. we have their incredible reunion coming up. good morning, spend it with friends.
good morning, everyone. thank for joins us on "fox and friends weekend." this is your first time on the curvy couch. >> unfortunately more coming up on that from what i'm told. >> it looks like you have potential. but we do need to get to this fox news alert. the funeral for officer rafael is it ray motion, will get under way. >> we're live at the tabernacle where tens of thousands are gathering to say good-bye. >> good morning, hundreds are gathering this morning in front of the christ tabernacle church here in queens, new york for the funeral services of officer
ramos. more25,000 people are expected here today to pay their respect. the funeral services set to begin this morning beginning at the church where the officer was an active member for the past 14 years. yesterday a somber day, as officers carried hess flag-draped, ramos dressed in full uniform as officers from all over the country lined up to view the open casket and pay their respects, including cardinals timothy nolan and mayor de blasio. he was described as selfless and compassionate. his sister cindy saying it was the highest honor to have him as a broke one of his two sons calling hem a hero and a role model. >> dad, i will miss you very
much. i will miss you with elf fiber of my being. >> my hark aches so much right now. please pray for me, as i know you always did. >> you're looking at a live shows of the ramos family coming out of the motorcade here. again, the funeral services said to begin at 10:00 a.m. we are expecting mayor bill de blasio and vice president joe biden to speak here. we can expect a traditional ser moyer. bagpies, many honor guard, helicopters flying over head with one missing as a sign of the missing man. the services for the other officer liu, they are still wait fog his family from china from on to arrive, but we're expecting a very emotional, somber day. >> thank you so much for that.
you see all these police officers, a lot of those are nypd officers, but also jetblue that is offered to fly in police officers for free. >> two officers from every department over 650 officers, to pay their respects. >> good job out of jetblue. >> not from new york to see -- unfortunately i covered a few funerals a year ago. the sea of blue is really what stands out to people. this police department is so large, so all the police officers are there. as far as the eye can see, all you can see is it is men and women in uniform. there's a shot of that, of what it looks like in glen dade queens this morning. emotional doesn't even do it justice. >> a wave of officers, the sea of blue here, a true sign of solidarity, especially in light
of these protests that are going on across the country. >> protests, threats against officers, the anger that's existed here in new york city, and also so much support for the police officers, especially after the two killings here in terms of the way the perception has changed. you realize how many of these officers come. each one will tell you i'm here, because i would want another officer to come if something were to happen to me. >> well, yesterday of course there was the visitation, and huge crowds gathered in queens, but along the hudson river was a very different sign. retired and current police officers commissioned a pilot, about $1,000 to fly a banner that says to de blasio, our blacks have turned to you, and de blasio is expected to speak today at the funeral. some are saying he shouldn't be. others are saying this is up to the family, they should be the ones to ultimately make the
decision. >> in a larger sense, everyone has ha feeling, but also this sort of anger among the nypd, because they really feel like bill de blasio turned his backs on them a long time ago, and a lot of folks said the violent nature of these protests were so emboldened by de blasio's comments, including the one where we talked to his son about being afraid of police officers, and that has a lot of people very, very angry. >> he has a huge champion of the protests in the city, encouraging people to express their first amendment rights, but he did ask them for a moment of calm, to press the pause button on christmas eve, and they didn't do it. some say he's losing control even of his base. wet bernie kerik.
he said de blasio needs to take a different approach and different outlook. listen to this. >> i think he's trying, about you i also believe he's lost some control. these protesters are still out there. protesters went to the actual memorial the other day and protests continue. it's got to stop. it's got to stop. he's the person that can really stop it. >> protesters will continue today, from what we understand, in other parties of the city, even as they officers gather. >> i'm not sure how anyone can argue that is in good taste, when you have two people being laid to rest. >> and the mayor asked hem to hole on. the mayor account the police union to pull back on their rhetoric, because there is that side to it as well. they probably listened a bit better. we haven't heard as much from, say, pat lynch, after we did the night of the murders which he
came out and suggested the mayor may have blood on his hands. the protesters haven't listened as much, but this is, as we said earlier, some scene when all these officer get together. >> as far as that banner go es that flew yesterday. we asked governor huckabee about it, and he said no, but doing something so public on the day of the visitation was not the time. they need to have some peacemaking if they can. >> i think it's important to look back at the history of turning the backs on you and the whole idea. it comes from the moments after officer ramos was shot. he was at the hoop. there was hundreds of police
officers who showed up at the hospital, and as mayor de blasio walked out of the hospital, the officers who are lining the hallways there with their friends obviously in very bad shape turned their backs on the mayors, because they were so angry. it goes sort of to the issue of leadership here. bill de blasio is the mayor, but who is everyone in the city taking their cues from. there was no question after 9/11 it was rudy giuliani, and to a certain extent michael bloomberg had that as well. >> the only thing helping the mayor is commissioner bill bratton, who still has the respect of the force. he's also served in los angeles and boston, but he as been respected by the rank and file for many years.
>> here's why all of this matters, too. all of you at home know that the repercussions, the ripple effect that affects you and the tone between the community and the cops. we saw in hollywood yesterday, a woman pointing a gun at a cop. we saw in massachusetts a woman throwing pork products at cops and calling them pigs. it's awful. but on the other side you've seen rockers wearing nypd if shirts on stage or chili cookoffs and delivery of good you have to take a minute and look at these pictures, taking the saturday after christmas, coming to new york city, many of them spending their own money to do it, to pay respects. how they come together is important to see and how they
come together in the face of great threat. we have seen police officers assaulted in st. louis during the protests, as recently as this past week when there was another police-involved shooting of a kid with a gun. they were assaulted there, fireworks thrown. still everyone comes together to really remember these two officers. you think about raphael ramos for a moment, it's very easy to get caught up in the politics about what leaders are saying this, but this is a man who every day went to work, risked his life. he spent his entire life trying to get on the police force, and by all accounts an incredible family man, a man of great faith. shot and killed execution-style, left behind two children, a wife here, and they are coming together to honor this man and his service. >> it's a very human moment.
you see somebody that you're not feeling great about why you're there, but you can still see they're happy to have seen that person that they haven't seen and the brotherhood they share and the risk that goes along with that is something that obviously brings them together. we could even see that in the dress uniforms with the white gloves, as the officers greet each other. it will be quite a day here in new york. also vice president joe biden has been asked by the president to come and attend the funeral. president obama will remain in wloi on vacation. some have sudden he should have had a more public appearance among all this as well. >> there's been a lot of controversy in his role about this remember after the eric garner decision, the attorney general was out making a statement he talked about the ferguson indictment.
so far on the execution of these two officers, other than a statement, he's been silent. no on-camera statements, nothing like that, and the vice president coming here, obviously a great show of support, and obviously another one of these scenes, officer liu, his families has to come in from china. you can imagine their anguish and heartbreak as they are trying to get halfway around the world to say good-bye to their brother, their son. you can imagine the support and strength the family is gaining. that's what this is about. it's about comfortic this family. it's a very personal matter. resetting at :13 after the hour, you are looking live at the funeral for one of two nypd officers. where is the president now? how about eric holder? we take a closer look with a former doj official, next. you're here to buy a car.
gunned down one week ago, including the arrest of a man who was hiding this stash of weapons inside this home. a lot of folks are asking where is the president and the attorney general on this? and who better to ask than former doj civil rirgts attorney jay christian adams. obviously a very sad time. as we look at live pictures from the funeral, it brings to light a many more significant question. when the eric garner case began here, and ended with the indictment, the attorney general came out one hours. we heard a lot from the president on ferguson. we've heard nothing from the administration about the killings of these two officers. vice president biden is expected to speak at this funeral here, but there's been a loud sound of silence. why do you think that is? >> don't forget the police are
what separates us from the mob burning in california, looting in ferguson, killing in new york city. without the police, we would suffer from these people. that's exactly why the administration has been totally silent, because they've been on the side of the lawless up until now. it took a police killing in new york city to say anything about this. instead they're fanning the flames. the policies, leland are out of control. he appointment people in the justice department who have been on the side of attacking police. people in top doj positions. they pay hundreds of thousands to the organization lie the institution of race on justice. to engender a narrative that the cops are bad. it's both the rhetoric and the doj policies that have been on the side of the lawless and not on the side of law enforcement
for the last few years. bill bratton is now making his way through that crowd to attend this funeral. there's been so much discussion, though, about this break between mayor de blasio and the nypd, we've been covering it all morning all week in terms of the way the mayor has treated the police. the way the police have angrily come back there's a lot of police who are getting worried they have to make that split-second decision. i'm wondered if your time at the doj, if you can look at what if anything can be done to reinforce this truth between police officers and the rest of law enforcement, the rest of the united states government, that people have their back. >> it's going to be hard to,
leland. it's a cultural division that this administration that is exacerbated. here's why. at the justice department, there are dozens of new lawyers that holder hired that earned their credibility, earned their stripes, attacking police. they're not career civil servants who are not going anywhere. they exist to harass the police. take a look at the new orleans trial, where doj lawyers rigged an election against -- i'm sorry -- rigged a conviction against new orleans police officers. take a look at the policies of this administration. this is a cultural division. people like the mayor of northern, eric holder, barack obama have been schooled 2349 culture that police are bad. >> certainly a tough message for these police officers to know that they have in terms of things. j. christians adams, we certainly appreciate your time. you're looking once again at
live pictures, queens new york where hundreds, if not thousands of police officers are gathered to is a good-bye to one of their own. more coming up on "fox & friends" in just a minute. a dry mouth can be a common side effect. that's why there's biotene. it comes in oral rinse, spray or gel, so there's moisturizing relief for everyone. biotene, for people who suffer from a dry mouth.
times. one family stirring up criticism for following their daughter to college in portland, oregon. they share an apartment and have been living together out there since september. here is a clip of our interview earlier on. >> we with work from our computer, so we can go where we please. it's been a great experience. >> i feel like i'm really independent. i still go to college. i still am on campus meeting new people and making friends and having college experiences. i just happen to live at home, too. >> is this extreme helicopter parenting or not? we're joined by our parenting panel.
welcome to all of you. we interviewed the mom and the daughter. that clip didn't do it justice, but she wasn't as unhappy as her expression. i asked her at the end of the interview would she do it again next year? it sounded like she was going to have her mom around. >> what else was she going to say? >> someone to do your laundry and cook your meals? i think you miss the college experience. >> i think our generation, with you love to over-parent. but for some reason, and i don't know why that is, we want to somehow control who our kids' friends are and do hair homework. we have to let them make mistakes. >> there's the other side where there's a reason -- i didn't get the sense that was this case, but there is a reason you need
to be close to their kids. >> no, i don't buy it. i think one of the most important components of the college experience is that independence, and for parents to show up on your campus, my gosh, this isn't elementary school. there are no class moms anymore, so let's move away, and the independence you hope that children come to understand is violated, not to mention their social life. >> an interesting torrie, and thank you for a quick response. we have the breaking story in queens today, we have to cover, so we'll wrap it up for today. once again, the funeral is about to get under way. mayor bill de blasio has just arrived on the scene, glen dade queens this morning. we'll take you there next. l i'm angela, and i quit smoking with chantix. people who know me, they say 'i never thought you would quit.'
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. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you have 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 or history of seizures. don' 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. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a non-smoker, that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
. back live to the christ tabernacle church, which is in queens, new york. we have about a half hour away from the beginnings of the funeral for officer rafael ramos. well, moments ago, new york city mayor bill de blasio arriving. he is expected to speak at the service. >> we live at the scene. brian? >> good morning. that's right, we've seen hundreds gather all morning. what you can see in back of me, actually, rows of nypd officers lined up, ready for hearst carrying the body of ramos.
now, the church is very important to the officer. he was a member there for 14 years. the congregation of about 4,000, he was an usher, a pastor, a humble and church-going man and of course now he's being laid to rest here today in front of his family, his wife, two children, two boys, justin and jayden who spoke yesterday. here the officers of not really speaking to anyone. that's a tradition. they don't speak here at the ceremonies. they're lined up with the white gloves and full uniforms. the speaker is out here playing some somber music. they're just all ready to salute the officer for the last time. mayor bill de blasio came in about five minutes away in a motorcade. the nypd commissioner bratton arrived, and tweeted -- our
hearts are heavy as we lay to rest one of our finest officer. our hearts are heavy. we've seen one protester that said "dump de blasio." somebody known as somebody with an infectious smile, he volunteered when are as an usher at this church, helping elderly people to the seats. he was part of a marriage pact, helping others through their church, a continuous will you praying for them today he will no doubt get thousands of players from those who will be here and around the world, as we hon or him and his family and all that he has done in service of this country and city. we have jurs moments away from
his funeral service. >> yes we saw just ahead of the wake his casket with the flag draped over it being carried into the church on the shoulders of six of his fellow officers. you mentioned bill de blasio speak, vip joe biden speaking. what else can we expect. >> we have the honor gart, about al pallbearers. it's just other officers that will carries hi casket. you mentioned the bagpipes. his hearst will travel to the final resting spode with officers on the side.
helicopters will also fly over in the missing man formation in honor of officer raphael ramos. again this is part of the traditional ser myowe expected. as you want. vice president joe biden will be expected to make remarks. >> the church itself, which we are looking at with the wreath above the doors and people walking in and out, such a big part of his life. obviously is not big enough to hold even a fraction of the people who are there. how will they know what's going on inside? i know yesterday they had some monitors set up. is something happen similarly today? >> about 850 people can fit inside that church. yesterday there were giant television screens set up. today you don't see that. today what you see is just speakers outside. perhaps they'll be able to play the audio, but we don't see
television screens like we saw yesterday. there would be a live web stream of the funeral service on the church's wub site, but against right now it's just the officers lining up ready for the hearst, and there's music playing here. >> it's not just new york's finest who are in attendance here jedblue hundreds of them to show their final respects as well. >> that's right. >> i was just going to get to the sense we've been talking all morning about the controversy that's been surrounding the officers killings, and the response to it, the mayor. there's a lot of officers who are upset that the mayor showed up.
do you get a sense of that tension? or has everyone put aside the receipt ricks. have they been able to simply focus today on officer ramos, or whether you get a sense of that tension as we watch that video of bill de blasio coming there to the church. >> leland, there's no sense of political tension here whatsoever. today is about officer ramos. you can tell when you look at the environment here, there's no sense that anyone is here to talk about politics, to talk about whatever pat lynch had to say, whatever de blasio had to say. none of that. it appears this environment has taken a tone. rafflial ramos' family said they
don't want to hear anymore from pat lynch or mayor de blasio. they want to hear about officer ramos and the order officer, liu who lost their lives. today there's no sense of anyone talking about nothing except for the memories, and everyone is here with a keen purpose to remember him and what he's brought and what he's done for this city and country. >> thank you, brian. t would happen, if you have any there's a time and a place for everybody. emotions were high last week when pat lynch what he said and over official said what they had. when bill bratton sent out his tweet this morning, talking about heavy hearts as they lay to rest one of their finest police officers, and officer ramos, he was talking about that and having to focus as it will be starting some 20 minutes from now, and nothing else. >> you got it. mayor bill de blasio has been a
huge supporter of the protest ers he did ask for a moment of pause on christmas eve and protesters didn't do it. they still came out. as far as protests scheduled for today, many groups have backed down and said we are going to not do that today, but i was just reading there is one scheduled in brooklyn today. yesterday we saw a flag going along the hudson river saying mayor de blasio, our backs you are turned to you. that was commissioned for about $1,000 for a pilot to fly up the hudson river by both retear and current police officers who are saying that these relationships that we have with the police department and about city hall have been very ey and we feel betrayed by the mayor. >> obviously that is a reference
to what happened after office ramos was shot, and officer -- mayor de blasio showed up to the hospital. on his way out, there are dozens if not hundreds of police officers who turned their backs to the mayor in a show of disrespect and a show of the tension that exists. obviously that is not something we are seeing here today. these officers have come together and obviously we're all waiting toss what mayor de blasio says, and all morning we've been talking about what he is say to close the rift between the police department. >> this isn't something that happens very much, thank goodness.
so many of them were killed in the attacks. it sealed like there was a funeral every day, but when it does happen now it's strikes to see the sea of blue, and as anna said earlier, you're right, it's not just the nypd that's there. it's the other officers around the country. that's what happened in 9/11, on september 12th, 13th and 14th, when police were still looking, hoping to find bodies. sure, there were nypd officers there, and from driving through the night to come to northern and this brotherhood that comes with law enforcement, and i think you can include the firefighters as well. >> you see the sea of blue. on you producers telling us that 20,000 are expected to be showing support here. >> we're going to reset now. a live look where thousands are
in my world, wall isn't a street... return on investment isn't the only return i'm looking forward to. for some, every dollar is earned with sweat, sacrifice, courage. which is why usaa is honored to help our members with everything from investing for retirement to saving for college. our commitment to current and former military members and their families is without equal. start investing with as little as fifty dollars. just find the one you're looking for, see what others paid for it, lock in your savings, and get the car you want hassle-free. with truecar, it's never been easier.
good morning, everyone. in a fox news alert, moments ago mayor bill de blasio arriving at the funeral for officer ramos, one of the officers assassinated in his patrol car. set to begin in about 15 minutes. >> quite literally tens of thousands, the latest number 25,000 of officers from arrange the nation are gathering here in northern in queens to pay their final respects. we're joined on the telephone by one of the morse decorated detectives in the city's history, bo deedle.
what are you thinking as you watch this scene? >> it's horrible memories. i was a cop back in the early '70s we had 134 cops assassinated one year and 11 the next. mice first reaction is when they two brave officers were assassinated, i've been very outspoken about de blasio like everyone else has been. today is not a day about de blasio. today is a day to reflect on this hero, raphael ramos. i'm not against anybody being there. i just wished this mayor realizes what this police department is all about. maybe he'll come back to earth and understand what this police department is all about, and show them the support he should have been showing in the beginning, but today my heart -- when this thing happened i felt
like i lost a relative. it's a funny brotherhood, you could be retired or whatever, but when that news comes, you feel like you lost a relative. my heart is very heavy today, watching the funeral. i just feel very emotional about it. again, it's something that today it's about reflecting a the officers and what they gave up. they gave up their lives, their families still have to live without these officers coming home, and i think that's what it's about. >> every day they go to work, and they have no idea what they're walking into. at the wake yesterday we heard from the still of rafael ramos, and also one of his two sons. let's take a listen to that. >> dad, i will miss you very -- i'll miss you with every fiber of my being. >> my heartaches so much right now.
please pray for me, as i know you always have. >> and when you hear that. >> obviously it just breaks your heart. what is this family going through, though? >> it's just something. again with -- i mean, we went through this many, many times in my career. you've got to remember i'm retired 30 years. i was on the force for 15. that's 45 years that i've been involved with the police department. i still say very current with the police department, and have so much respect for bill bratton and all the officers, the patrolmen up to the chiefs of the department. the whole thing is just about one thing. it's a life, not a profession. once you retired, you still have that running in your blood and you still have that respect. you know what has to happen right now? i hope this man, this president
start to realize the environment that they have caused here with this anger against cops. these cops didn't do anything wrong. we have the most diversified police department in the world in new york city. one asian, one hispanic, just to show you the diversity of this police department. it doesn't need retraining. what this police department needs is the support of the people and understanding of what happened. accidents do happen. tragic accidents in staten island, and you know what? these cops should not be blamed about a man who was dying in custody. again it's not about the police department. to condemn a whole police department and treat these guys and ladies like this is so long. >> it really speaks to the brotherhood. bo, did you hear how quick those names came off his tongue? >> yeah. and these kids that are growing
up, but they grew up without a father, and that's a horrible, horrible things. again, today is a reflection, and i hope when he bury two officers, when they are finally buried, this man and this president can reflect and bring us back to the way we was. with the two non-racial incidents that are cured in the united states. as far as people now jumping on board with this anger. it's anger against cops. i don't get it. i turn the tv on every night. what caused this anger? let's step back and remember these two brave officers and start loving the police department again. you have a great department here. >> that's what we'll do. >> try to put politics aside. bo dietl. >> god bless their families, okay? >> absolutely. 100%. that was governor andrew cuomo
hey what are you doing? i was thinking about taking this speed test from comcast business. oh yeah? if they can't give us faster internet or save us money, they'll give us 150 bucks. sounds like a win win. guys! faster internet? i have never been on the internet and i am doing pretty well. does he even work here? don't listen to the naysayer. take the comcast business speed test. get faster speeds or more savings, or we'll give you $150. comcast business. built for business.
we are back now, live with the fox news alert. we are taking you outside cloudy skies tabernacle church in queens, new york. the funeral for rafael ramos, an officer assassinated will begin. tons of thousands of officers in new york and around the country are gathering to pay their final respects. >> quite a gentleman. we talked, somebody who worked
as an usher inside that church. we are learning about his career, a short career with the police department. the people who were regular in the church knew him well. he was there every week to help people. now, many of them, along with fellow officers coming out to remember him. >> a spiritual leader in the church, known for his infectious smile. he's there in uniform. all the officers feel they are part of his family. his family, his wife and two sons, no doubt, are in mourning this morning. >> they say 25,000 police officers will come to attend this funeral. many flown in from arnds the country by jetblue. a host of dignitaries are coming. vice president joe biden, tim dolen will be at the church. governor cuomo who just walked in. he's been a member of that church for 14 years, you were saying.
>> right. >> we are learning he was a spectacular man. all he wanted to do with his life was be an nypd officer. been on the fort about two years. you get a sense of how close the brotherhood is when you see these men and woman come together to pay their respects and be there for this family. many will tell you, they hope the rest of the law enforcement community will be there for their family. >> it's not just the 8 million people that live in new york city, the ripple effects of this terrible tragedy have been felt across the country. >> we'll be right back with more. i'm angela, and i quit smoking with chantix. peop they say 'i never thought you would quit.' 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. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix.
some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you have 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 or history of seizures. don' 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. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a non-smoker, that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
ramos will begin in a moment. >> we have pictures of governor cuomo arriving. vice president, joe biden is supposed to be there as well. >> stay with us for continuing coverage. the market roaring and the economy growing. so, is this really the time for more spending? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner. this is bulls and bears. the dow closing above 18,000 for the first time ever this week. the economy posts the strongest growth in more than a decade. what is the white house reported plan of action for the new year? more spending on everything from universal prepaid to housing, to energy to job training. it's throwing more tax collars at this kind of stuff necessary? we'll ask the bulls and bears, gary b. smith,
