ry to answer it. don't forget to dvr our program if you are busy on sunday. we will see you on facebook and twitter we begin with a fox urgent a huge weather system is spawning tornados already today, we've seen twisters touching down in north texas and south dakota. and we can tell you people were hurt. and a lot of property damage well look at your screen. shelters are open at this hour to take people who had to evacuate. millions are now facing the risk of severe weather. here's why. look at the map. where you see the red, especially critical but the system as you can see is wide beyond that. more news as we get it on this breaking weather situation. i'm harris faulkner this is the fox report. let's get started with 2016 the race for the white house
quickly heating up. on the republican side six people already officially launching campaigns, it is a diverse field, and it appears more candidates are waiting in the wings. among them former florida governor jeb bush who just has given fox news megyn kelly his first interview in months. today on the sunday talk shows, the latest candidates to announce gave their lists of reasons why they deserve to be president. doug mckelway is live with us tonight. let's begin with carly. >> the washington experience can be a plus it can be a negative as well that's definitely a factor. there's a balance to be struck here on the other side a recent poll finds that 70% of voters would uncomfortable with no political experience. two of the gop candidates to announce this week carly and ben, have little political experience but both today defended their qualifications for the highest office in the
land. >> i think i'm certainly not a political neofight. i've helped lots of others win, in addition i have done a lot of policy work advised secretaries of defense, heads of cia, and nsa, sec states of state and the homeland security. >> there's real life experience and there's politics. politics you know there are some good people in the political arena, but i'm not sure that they actually in many cases understand real life. >> the third gop candidate to announce this week is former arkansas governor mike huckabee his conservativism appeals to many in the gop base but he's facing his own obstacle resistance from fiscal hawks who point to his record of governor of arkansas. today he appealed to seniors when he defended social security against cuts that some say need to be made to protect its long-term solvency. >> understand the program. has some real fiscal problems
but why would you punish the rip sip yents who played by the rules that they were forced to play by? >> huckabee's chances are seen as slim they are time around given the array of candidates who entered, but he could play a spoiler role taking away christian votes from other christians like ted cruz and rick santorum. >> you know what else a new poll from the important caucus state of iowa has now shifted in recent weeks what are your thoughts? >> this was released on may 6th scott walker has a big early lead in the iowa republican caucus not as big as one time. four candidates rand paul and mike are all jockeying for second place with numbers between 13 and 11% while jeb bush in seventh place with only 5%. that could change though harris. long time to go. >> no doubt. feels like it's heating up and more people getting in you're right, it's early, thank you.
now to former florida governor jeb bush who just sat down as i mentioned earlier with megyn kelly for an interview. governor bush making news on several issues but at one point he asked if he would have invaded iraq. >> on the subject of iraq -- >> yeah. >> obviously very controversial. knowing what we know now, would you have authorized the invasion? >> i would have. and so would have hillary clinton just to remind everybody and so would have everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got. >> you don't think it was a mistake? >> in retrospect the intelligence that the world saw, not just the united states was faulty. and in retrospect once we once we invaded, and took out saddam hussein, we didn't focus on security first, and the iraqis in this incredibly insecure environment, turned on the united states military because there was no security for themselves and their families. by the way, guess who thinks that those mistakes took place
as well? george w. bush. >> your brother. >> yeah i mean so for the news flash to the world, if they're trying to find places where there's big space, this may not be one of those. >> so we can watch this entire exclusive interview on kelly file with megyn kelly tomorrow in prime time 9:00 p.m. eastern right here on the fox news channel. and we'll have more on the comments with the political insiders a little bit later here on the fox report. right now, new information on a fourth suspect charged in the shooting deaths of two police officers in mississippi. the victims, a former officer of the year and a rookie officer, were gunned down during a traffic stop. one of the cruisers stolen from the scene of the crime. a woman who rushed over to help says one of the officers asked, am i dying? 34-year-old benjamin deen and tate are the first officers in hattisburg mississippi, to die in three decades on the job.
molly line working the story, what's the latest? >> a fourth person was arrested of the deaths two of officers. the investigation is far from over. they were taken into custody in different places, that's created multiple crime scenes. we have new information from the public safety department warren strain he confirms that cornelius clark, 28 years old was charged with obstruction of justice in the case also charged and taken into custody early this morning, brothers marvin and curtis banks, who both have criminal records. marvin 29 charged with what counts of capitol murder one count of grand theft auto for taking off in one of the vehicles and one count of felon possession of a firearm. the younger brother, 26, charged with two counts of accessory after the fact. and finally, joni callaway also charged with two counts of capital murder. both officers benjamin deen and the 25-year-old were shot

officers for tomorrow 1:00 at the lake terrace convention center. the leading cause of death among law enforcement officers in 2014. >> yeah, you know what we've been looking into this we have more information for the viewers on what you're talking about. molly, good to see you always thank you very much. the tragedy in mississippi, as molly just mentioned, comes days after the deaths two of other officers brothers and sisters in blue escorting the body of greg moore back from washington state after an autopsy was completed. thousands it more officers then travelled from across america to attend his funeral yesterday. sergeant moore was shot and killed on the job last week. and a sea of blue in new york city on friday for the funeral of brian moore, who was promoted to detective posthumously he was shot during a traffic stop. 40 police officers have been killed in the line of duty this year. ten of the deaths involved shootings. well, we have just learned former president jimmy carter is returning to atlanta after
falling ill while on a trip to south america. no specific information about the president's condition was made public as of yet, but a statement by the carter center says he was not feeling well during his visit where he was going to monitor election's tomorrow. his staff is still there, we're told to observe the vote. and now let's get on now back to the story that i was telling you about at the top of the hour. severe weather that's moving across the country. more information coming in and brand new pictures. parts of denton, that's in north texas, especially hard hit. that community is trying to recover in the wake of a destructive twister. and massive flooding. here's a look at a water rescue going on right now. we switched from the new video to live pictures. we're going to bring in will karr i want to keep the pictures up take me out, put the pictures back will we're watching the pictures this is denton, texas, i want to skip ahead a little bit in your reporting and get your point of view. because you were caught up in
one of these storms tell me what you experienced. >> that's right, harris, you know it's sunny right now, but there is dangerous weather playing out all across this region. tornado actually touched down in denton a little bit earlier today, and for the past couple of days all across this region it has been raining nonstop, just pounding this area. so a lot of people think that they are safe. what you're watching play out right now in denton is where people think they're okay within a matter of seconds, the flash flooding starts because it starts raining so hard and they get caught in a very dangerous situation, and the first respond verse to get out there and try to save them as quickly as possible. we've seen this over the past couple of days just so much rain so quickly, it's easy to imagine how this could be playing now the denton right now. >> all right. and that perspective is helpful. i've looked down at the associated wires now, and here's what the associated press wires are saying. that this is the town of crumb and the denton county emergency
services chief says they are in the midst of a helicopter rescue. people caught in those rising flood waters will as you described, so detailed just then because you've been through this just recently. i want to move on now to the area where you are with because you're in cisco. >> that's right, and one thing i'll add quickly, is that a lot of times people's attentions goes to the tornados that come with the water, but the flooding is just as important to pay attention to on your cell phone throughout this past couple of days we have gotten several flash flood advisories national weather service says if you get one, go home stay safe if you can. we're in cisco, and this is where a tornado hit last night, behind me is a home that was destroyed, seven homes destroyed here one woman was inside of that home when the tornado hit. she passed away. the tornado also killed several homes, several cows on her property. the national weather service was out here earlier today, and they determined this was an ef-3 tornado. than means that it had sustained winds up to 165 miles per hour.
we spoke to rhonda phillips earlier, she lives close by this tornado destroyed a barn that was built by previous owners on her property 100 years ago, it destroyed it in just a matter of seconds. >> what they helped build is just gone in a matter of seconds. it's heart breaking but we're good. we've survived it we'll clean up and still make this a place that is pretty one day. >> one quick story i'll leave you with harris we are in town getting lunch, woman walked in she wanted to buy sandwiches for five or six men who showed up to help clean up the property. she was very emotional, and when she got to the cashier, another jumped up from his seat slapped his card down and said we got you. that's been the mentality that we've seen across this area all day long harris. >> i want to bring back the live pictures if we can, i'm learning the denton county emergency services chief is saying they've
had to do this multiple times. these helicopter rescues. these are live pictures in the town of crumb. denton county and it's located about 50 miles northwest of dallas texas, would you look at the water that's pouring in from one side and i know you've been in this area will that water is moving with some velocity you can tell from these pictures. i'm not sure if we still have will karr are you still with us? all right. sometimes can happen with these situations. we'll lose a satellite live shot because there's still weather moving in what you're watching right now is the live rescue. we know that there's been heavy flooding obviously, as these tornados have ripped through the area you heard will telling you he got caught up in one last night just as a spectator. but what happens is the sky's kind of clear up people hit the roadways and they don't understand that that water can
breach the sides of the roadways and create a situation like this. so that denton county emergency services according to to the wires is say they have closed many roads and doing high water rescues. not just the one on your screen but this is precarious. we're going to watch the situation and update you as we can. now let's move on to concerns on how to stop the islamic state terror army from making the united states the next front in the war on terror. lawmakers say, we are losing the fight online. and making it look like isis is winning. this as the savages claim followers are already here inside our nation ready to attack, stay close.
there are quote, possible possibly hundreds of isis supporters living in america. all this follows the attack last week when two men opened fire on a draw mohamed cartoon contest in texas. isis is claiming responsibility. elizabeth pram with the news from washington elizabeth. >> reporter: hi harris. in response to increasing threats from isis the pentagon raised the terror alert level from military bases across the country. making it the highest level since the september 11th tenth anniversary. this is fbi director james comby told reporters home grown terror is on the rise. this on the heels of a thwarted attack on the draw mohamed cartoon contest in texas. the chair of the homeland security committee says terror has gone viral, and the white house isn't keeping up. >> this administration this budget allocates zero dollars
towards combatting home grown violent extremism, in fact within the department of homeland security more money, in fact millions of dollars are dedicated to climate change, rather than combatting what i consider to be one of the biggest threats to the homeland. >> reporter: jay johnson agrees the nation is facing a new phase of global terror and a lone wolf attack could be carried out at any moment. he also says the administration has learned from its lessons in the past and communication with state and local law enforcement officials has improved. >> we've had to ramp up our communications with state and local law enforcement because the manner in which the global terrorist threat is evolving and the fbi and in my department work every day to work together to get information out to law enforcement. on the local level. >> reporter: johnson went on to say the fbi is working to counter the flashy social media campaign carried out by isis and resources are also being used to track americans who are traveling to syria to either
join or support the terror network. harris back to you. >> elizabeth, thank you very much. we to want take you back to the live pictures now, this waters redmu denton texas -- rescue in denton texas. we're understanding, this was moments ago, brand new video coming in because we can see two pictures the live picture off the side but what you're looking at the in the middle of your screen people taken from their home where they were stranded inside. this is are the town of krum texas, it's about 50 miles northwest of dallas and denton county. and i can tell you from -- i'm going read as it's coming in. rescue chopper first located a parked vehicle and also some people in their homes. so far, four people have reported that they have been needing help and have been pulled to safety by choppers but there are many of these rescues going on and it reads, denton fire is dispatching two -- now this is another one. okay this is just coming in. look at this people
we come in with this fox news alert, we know that when twisters pull out and meteorologist warn of high water and rising quickly, sometimes people will head out anyways because the sky's above have cleared. and the situation that's playing out right now in north texas is a potentially deadly one. as we left you for commercial people were trapped on the rooftop of that pickup truck, and look in a moments we've been away they've been able to rescue them. now we went to this scene suddenly from another scene where people were pulled from an area where they were stranded
inside their homes that were quickly dealing with rising water as well. and for those people they had an option i'm told to get out. some of them did not know they needed to move as quickly as they needed to move. certainly in this situation where people are driving and they can see where rares are being overtaken by water. sometimes it's hard to tell just how fast that water will rise. look at all the people on the part of the road that is dry. you can kind of understand you're driving along and it looks like you can make it through, then suddenly you can't. but a blessing for those people tonight. because we saw them and that water was coming up it was pasted windows, on to the rooftop of the pickup truck. and we're told it's a blackhawk chopper that pulled down got down very close. we could watch it happen. and then they were rescued off the top of that pickup truck. we've watched several of these this afternoon and now on into the evening. now back to live pictures. they're setting up again. i mentioned this the denton
county emergency chief was talking to the associated press. we're getting calls to for pyre ands re -- fire and rescue for people in homes and cars as the water is rising so very quickfully north texas, denton the town where people were on top of the pickup truck is krum. that's about 50 miles northwest of dallas. and so they are set and ready to go for the next call that comes in. they are anticipating many. and we'll watch this situation too. and, we'll move on to this and come back to this when we learn more information. boy, those people are fortunate. high profile republican names yet to announce whether they are running for president, namely jeb bush scott walker chris christie here's the question does waiting to announce help or hurt your chances? the fox news political insiders will be right here with me at home base chime in while you tune in hit us on the fox news social media pages, facebook and twitter, help our hurt to wait? stay with us.
top of the news at the bottom of the hour. queen elizabeth marking 70 years since the end of world war ii by attending a parade. the queen's son, prince charles, and his wife camilla, also attending that ceremony. new york governor andrew cuomo says part of a nuclear plant remains offline after a fire that happened yet. it's the indian point nuclear plant which is north of new york city by quite a bit. thousands of gallons of oil have already spilled into the hudson river we're told. crews are working to contain as much as possible. people in the small town of delmont, south dakota have been told to leave. we've been watching this system. it is vicious. this after a tornado damaged more than 20 buildings and knocked out electrical power, phones power, we're keeping an eye where we've seen high water rescues. eye-popping situation going on there, and a blessing so far. no harm to report to human beings or their pets.
all right. let's bring -- >> just for the news flash to the world, if they're trying to find place where there's big space between me and brother, this may not be one of those. >> jeb bush telling megyn kelly he would have invaded iraq as well if he were in his brother's shoes back in 2003. the potential 2016 candidate also added, he believes hillary clinton and others would have done the very same thing. the fox news political insiders are here. we haven't even started and john is shaking his head. be sure to tune in and chime in on our fox news social media pages, facebook twitter, john former republican congressman from new york pat in the middle former pollster for jimmy carter and fox news contributor to my right, doug schoen pollster for bill clinton and fox news contributor as well, gentlemen, good to see you. we have a lot going on. talk to me about jeb bush and
why you're shaking your head. >> politically, he said this is a mistake. he's embracing the most quite unpopular recent republican president. i don't think it'll help him in the nomination. i don't in a general election and i think in light of the big news today, which is that the sdi king has decided not to come to washington this goes back to that decision to invade iraq in 2003 that began the destablization of the middle east the emboldening of iran into this huge monster that's going through the middle east and we've got to deal with it and we now have a second president in a row who doesn't have a handle in the middle east. >> made it worse when he withdraw the troops prematurely by not getting a portions of agreement after we paid all that after we i agree was a terrible decision to go to war. what i never believed they had the stuff. i always thought it was there,
but did he go to war and cause, and shed the blood we did in the treasure and now that obama to pull the plug too early so he could do that. now the consequences of this in both policy two parties, two huge mistakes and now that the king isn't coming we could have war out of this. >> i want to con textually hand this. that's a story that fox news has just confirmed. the question was would you have done this in 2003? and as i understand it that would be different than would you do it today? >> the question is really will we have to do it today because conditions in iraq remain unstable. in that part of the world, in iraq we are effective allies of the iraqis at the same time we negotiate the nuclear deal. in yemen where on the other side err we're pressing the saudis to maintain their cease fire which they've just begun.
so we have as pat said a destabilized middle east the possibility of conflict with iran ourselves, but more likely shiites, sunni battling in the region. >> hold on i want to get on the record with this if you'll give me one pause so that kerve catch up. fox news has now confirmed, saudi king solomon will in fact skip the summit of the persian gulf leaders at camp david. the announcement comes just days after the white house had just confirmed the king would be in attendance. the saudi government is confirming that the king's son, mohamed will instead lead the delegation. very different than the king coming here himself. the camp david summit is meant to help the u.s. reassure our allies in the region about the ongoing nuclear talks with iran. pat, back to you one as i understand it this is an embarrassment for this white house. >> it's a slap in the face. they got up and said, the king is coming. then the saudis decided to send them a message about having the
king not come. by the way, what it sends a message about is the fact they don't trust this administration on what they're doing with iran they're already moving to massive nuclear proliferation to protect themselves, and i think this shows you just how incompetent this president and how ill regarded he is. that our major ally in the region isn't going to come. besides rally. our major arab ally this is going to affect oil and everything else. >> you think it will? >> it has to. the others coming will get in there and say, we still don't like what you're doing, and he's going to tell them it's not what they think, and he's going to be lying to them. >> i want to make it clear the situation in yemen than we saw with the saudis flying air strikes to get rid of the houthis rebels. that's a proxy war with the saudis and the iranians.
because it's an iran-backed houthi rebel movement over there against the saudis. so i want to put that as the backdrop. >> winning standing on the side winning. >> but imagine the situation where we are negotiating with the iranians -- >> uh-huh. >> while the iranians are in effect in this proxy war against our ally the saudis. >> and the saudi king decides, i'm not coming to your summit. >> he's thinking to himself, what is obama up to here? which side is obama on? then they look at -- >> here's another piece of news that bears on this what the saudis and the government of uae had said was they want a treaty like the nato treaty that would commit the united states to go to war on their behalf should there be conflict in the middle east. so far the obama administration has said no dice to that. i expect the saudi king was saying look if you're not prepared to commit yourself fully and totally to your allies why should i extend
myself? >> i want to tell people if they are just tuning in. they're going see the words on the screen saudi king solomon, put this in context. >> this is serious because the saudis and others particularly the usa dis.s. in saudi. we have not supported them far long time. and i'll tell you, it goes back now to the fact that this region is it's right on the cusp of what could be explosive. >> it goes to the cairo speech. obama's first big -- >> all those years ago. >> what did he do? he pulled the plug on our best arab ally, mubarak, the egyptian government he brought the muslim brotherhood and outed them. that sent shock waves through the world. >> david writes obama, president obama is making choices that will allow iran to
become a regional nuclear power and that affects the saudis. >> and that's right. david, he is exactly correct. the iranian nuclear ambitions will be fulfilled sooner or later with this deal. iran is flexing its muscles, region wide the saudis see a united states that is uncertain and uncommitted, and you know what they are taking a pass. >> i appreciate you guys being here. this is breaking news. we had just confirmed it. john you brought it up first and since we have been able to confirm it on our own. jeff kizer says on twitter, shia and sunni wars have lost confidence on the u.s. leadership and fear a sunni outmaneuvering. its been done. >> yes, the twitter, the tweeter is exactly right, whatever you are when you do that -- >> we'll call him jeff. >> i didn't catch the name. jeff's right. what we have here in all of this is this entire this
breakdown regionally and look the iranian deal we have democrats in the house writing a letter signing a letter. basically sending a message, we don't care what the senate does we're going to support obama's detail. the politics of this will get hairy now because if the region breaks down further -- >> weak and divided. >> and the democrats look like they're own who lost china if they keep this up. >> maybe the king won't come because he does not trust our president. real quickly, does this move the line and get us any closer to seeing a war situation, doug in the middle east? i don't want to utter it but it's kind of unavoidable. >> it does. it suggests that the entire region is getting more and more unstable. the tweeters are right, we don't know where the american president stands. and by the way, there's been -- >> why don't we know? >> because we don't know where he stands and what he's committed to. and there's been no mention of
israel, harris. >> saudi arabia and egypt, this is the other big news that's not being discussed. they are on a de facto alliance. the israelis egyptians, jordanians -- >> without the united states. >> fight for their own interests -- >> breaking news about the white house and the king of saudi arabia not coming to take part in this very critical summit that has deal with iran is being looked at. and our own congress. the house will look at the amendment to get involved and weigh in. the senate has passed this. this is a big week with regard to the deal in iran. no doubt we'll talk more. >> this president is just totally lost any ability to effect or lead in the world. >> we'll cover it as it happens. meanwhile the clinton foundation and benghazi controversy may be threatening hillary clinton's presidential campaign. some analysts say another big liability is a lot closer to home. why some are asking what to do with bill her husband. the fox news political insiders are coming back remember we love it when you chime in and
fox news political insiders are back, to bill or not to bill? john. >> well you know look bill clinton is a smart, smart politician. i think that what happens when you're invested in something, you often get your own emotions into it. he wants hillary to win badly. i think to vindicate himself from the impeachment. he wants the clinton name restored and back in the white house. i think he pushes too hard sometimes. i think the interview on the "today" show on monday about the foundation was a bad interview. i think he looked badly. >> interesting. pat, do you put your husband out there? does he help or hurt you if you're hillary clinton? >> well i mean first of all,
he is a better presenter than she is but he does have his own agenda. and -- >> he does what is it? >> his own agenda is bill clinton. look his agenda is bill clinton plus helping himself, but first of all, bill clinton, what he said about the foundation i don't think it was particularly helpful which is when you say i have somebody to bring in the money and pay the bills. well i don't know i just work there which is what he said today. >> we have this and doug i know you know the clintons well i'll get to you next. they have this conference for their clinton foundation, global initiative and mo which is a telecommunications billionaire with former president bill clinton. he asked what's going on he said yeah what is going on? began asking his own questions, and here is the former president. >> people complain about the global front, the global fund
what's the problem? >> i just work there, i don't know. >> wow. i mean doug really? >> let me explain what that answer means. president clinton has been asked, and i'm sure treated, by the hillary clinton for president committee to basically not get into a debate about the foundation. >> okay. >> that comment means, i'd like to tell you, i'd like to defend but i'm under effectively a gag order. and that's what you're hearing. that's why the president has been so so close mouthed. >> pat, did you know that the democrat party had the hillary clinton secret decoder ring in doug schoen? you're able to tell us what they're saying. >> i dealt with both of them for a very long time. i watched it but candidly i would give them the opposite advice. i would tell them to be full throated and defend what they've done because there's a lot what have they did involves very
very important and useful work. >> pat. >> look, this is part they are saying they don't want him to comment, it's part of the effort to cover all this up. and to pretend it doesn't exist. and we've been through this with the clinton's before and i think that we're going to find out, and it's being pumped now, i assume we're going to get to this by polls suggesting that the narrative that is -- and i will tell you after 50 years in this business that is insane. >> over 60 pat. >> not quite. 40. i only started when i was a teenager. but i'm telling you where it's so bad that end up and the political press in this conference is so dumb, they were all saying oh the scandal. that's what the bad new york times poll one of the worst run polls i've ever seen produced quote, evidence numbers, and promoted it. meanwhile the real story which is what the hell are what the
connections going on and why isn't there an investigation? >> by the way, we have some here at fox news ed henry, we have a few people who will ask the tough questions, it takes hillary clinton actually sitting down for an interview, john. she now has gone longer than any other candidate to make it known in the united states that they were going to run for the white house, without doing that traditional sit down interview. >> she doesn't have to. nobody of any serious nature running against her as of now so she can get away with it clearly as doug the decoder said that bill clinton is undered a gag order. she's under a gag order. they've got the candidate basically incognito for the american people. >> bill bravo says on twitter, the next thing you know and this is one of the viewers, bill clinton will be saying quote, i did not have business relations with that charity. >> well he did have business relations in the sense of raising money, the problem is neither clinton really wants to answer tough questions that have
fox news political insiders are here and our viewers chiming in while they tune in. randy tweeting me saying harris please ask the insiders how any republican can get 270 electoral votes in 2016 john go. >> it's doable. a, good candidate. got to have a positive message. got to win ohio florida, north carolina maybe virginia. it's not easy because we've been losing these states but it is doable the key is a good candidate with a positive uplifting message. >> okay.
