tv The Kelly File FOX News July 2, 2015 9:00pm-10:01pm PDT
which to opine. again, thanks for watching us tonight. ms. meghan is next. please remember the spin stops here. we're definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight we're getting new details on islamic state sympathizers inside america. ahead of warnings about a possible terror attack over the fourth of july weekend. good evening, welcome to the kelly file. i'm megyn kelly. tonight we're learning more about the reasons for the recent security warnings as independence day approaches. the chairman of the hao homeland security released new figures on isis supporters in the united states. more than 20 americans are joined or attempted to join the jihadis overseas. 55 isis supporters have been arrested on american soil just this year alone. and since 2014 the terror group
has waged 47 plots or attacks against western targets, including is 1 inside the u.s. the fbi is now warning law enforcement agencies across the country to beef up security. in new york the nypd is planning to deploy more than 7,000 officers including snipers and spotters to protect the areas around the macy's fire works show in addition to those patrolling the rest of the city. the nypd is calling its efforts unprecedented. >> this may be potentially the most complex counter terrorism overlay for this event ever. >> katherine heritage is life in washington with the latest tonight. >> tonight an invest day tif source says the chatter is up. across the nation tonight, there is a visible security presence as fox news is told that recent arrests of alleged isis
supporters inside the united states about a does nn the last two weeks, are connected and the common link is an isis recruiter who goes by the twitter handle al bu on the any. he drives home grown operatives across the threshold. we confirmed back in may he was communicating with the two shooters in garland, texas who tried and failed to take out the prophet muhammad cartoon drawing contest. he seemed to have knowledge of the threat. there's a shift in fbi technology the pick up the home grown terrorist and get them off the street rather than keep them under surveillance and build a more substantial case. because the time in making contact with isis and going operational, what they call the flash ka bang can be only days. >> we need to know about these things and people need to be put on alert. it makes them anxious but better
anxious than dead. they need to be aware of their surroundings. they need to know there's a potential attack and what to do if there is one, how to get out, run away and be alert. >> today the airport's canceled july fourth celebrations in england because the threat there is judged to be severe and credible credible. >> more on the terror alert, rod hos -- guys thank you for being here. is it just theup tick in isis attacks that we have seen overseas? plus i realize we've had five arrests of isis members in the past week in new york city. or is there more to it? is there chatter? is there coordination that we believe have taken place? >> there's very much more to it and not the least of it is just a difference in recruiting techniques than we see from isis
than al qaeda ten to 12 years ago. we have in effect people from social media in effect standing up on a hilltop domestically with a bull horn screaming calls to action and calls to kill. and the calls are not for necessarily get on a plane and come to syria to fight with us and be trained and, you know get your mind-set in jihad. it is so call for an opportunity that you might take here use the tools available, the time available and the targets available and a time at your choosing. it is very concerning. >> what do you make ron, of the possibility of soft targets and the danger there? because we heard the n yrks prksypd says it's so locked down that they don't believe it's going to
happen. the former director of the cia said this following sunday he believes we will be talking about an attack having have happened in the united states. so the nypd comes out and says that new york city is locked down. what we saw last week in tunisia was a guy concealing a weapon in an umbrella on a beach. >> we've seen what a well-armed person can do against a soft target. we saw in in south carolina two weeks ago, in newtown and the navy yard two years ago. so a motivated person or a sick person or a combination can do great damage against a soft target. i agree with the new york police. the same will be true on the fourth of july where resources are surged whether you see them or not, they are being surged they are leaning forward into this threat into this season that we are in. and so the opportunities are greater against the soft target.
and isis is willing to accept that. do the maximum damage possible they will claim credit and you will die. >> brad you have studied this group and you say that right now isis is facing a propaganda challenge given that it's no longer shocking people in the middle east. and thus that is in part the reason we're seeing the focus on america >> any time gre group can get media exposure it's great for them. people in the united states need to realize this is a very sophisticated group. even though we're seeing horrific acts out of the cowards in the middle east we're talking about advanced degrees with people pld people they're recruiting intelligent well-educated fighting age males here in the united states. it's not even the police that are going to spot the attack. it's you, yo it's your baby sitter me my wife.
this weekend, i get it. people have fatigue about terrorists attacks and all this kind of stuff. this is not the boy who cried wolf. this weekend people need to have their heads on a swivel. pay attention. if you see something, you really do need to say something. >> the propaganda value to nem in attacking on u.s. soil and in particular on the july fourth weekend would obviously be -- >> it's huge. and dates are very significant, particularly for islamic terrorists. they love it. they would love nothing more than to hit us on the fourth of july. it would have great play all around the middle east and a great propaganda and recruiting tool for them going forth. they've got everything to gain by launching an attack or multiple attacks this weekend. i'm worried we're going to be back on monday saying you know what unfortunately we were right. but if people keep their eyes open we may be able to stop this. >> wow. happy fourth.
great to see you bout. >> thanks meghan. >> we have a stunning update tonight in the campus rape case involving the student known as mattress girl. she earned an invitation to the state of the union. wait until you hear the update here. howie kurtz is next on this case the media and the lawsuit now accusing this woman of waging an anti-male harassment campaign. the trial of bo bergdahl is getting pushed back and i should involve some ugly new attacks on the soldiers who talked to us about bergdahl and the white house. he's live here tonight. first u was a confederate flag next the "dukes of hazzard." how far will they go to scrub american history. mark thesen in an unforgettable
i like your place. oh, thank you, make yourself at home i'll be right back. hm. she's got x1. alright. huh, hm, ohh... monster? she seemed so nice at dinner. i'm back! ahh! uhh... whatcha doing? ohh, just... watchin' law & order. awww, you're nervous. that's so cute. call and upgrade to get x1 today. ♪ do i think it's an error, yes. i think it's an error because "dukes of hazzard" one was one of the most beloved shows ever ever ever and now it's being cast in a terrible light that it
does not deserve. >> that was john schneider better known as bo duke speaking out after tv land announced it's pulling the "dukes of hazzard" ru runs after the air because the show features a confederate flag on the car driven by the duke boys. immediately after a young black men killed nine parishioners in a black church two weeks back the calls started coming. the killer was a fan of the flag. first folks wanted it taken down at the south carolina federal grounds. then removing it from the retail stores and now some are calling to rename and rededicate city streets and parks across the country that were named for confederate generals. nascar banned the flag from the stands the dukes are off tv and now people are asking how far do we want to go when it comes to
scrubbing or history. marc thiessen is here. good to see you. it's amazing, they're pulling down statues, vandalizing them of confederate generals and the question is how far are we going to take this? >> i agree with john schneider. he said can't we all just watch tv? the "dukes of hazzard" was not about race. i was about moonshine, short shorts and fast cars. what is accomplished by banning the "dukes of hazzard." quite frankly this impulse to wash away history is stalinish. joseph stalin used to erase people from pictures to erase their picture from history. why would we be following that impulse. i'm speaking to you right now from washington, d.c. which is named for a man who owned slaves. are we going to change our nation's capital's name? are we going to ban the
jefferson memorial? rename washington state? how far does this go? >> bonus points. you're right. you can get rid of -- forget the dollar bill forget sufferson. the jefferson. the nick sl going away. people are still walking around with some of the pains of the jim crowe era. you've got, what we talked about this last night, all of families have got to go, hogan's heroes has got to go. i mean like anything that touches on race that might require a trigger warning has now got to go. >> it's unbelievable. the thing about it is megyn, is has nothing to do with what the reality of the south is today. if you want to see how far race relations has come look at the reaction to the charleston shooting. there were no rice riots. the city didn't burn. they calm together prayed
together mourned together. there was a unity chain across the bridge of thousands of people stretches for two miles in each direction of all races. >> it's not the actual south southerners who is causing this? >> white liberals who want to feel better about themselves. we saw in charleston the reality of the new south. black and white united together. there was no dischord. they came together and it's these white liberals from the northeast and california who are trying to do this. the fact of the matter is -- >> so what about it? i mean is it about the confederate flag which to some is generally offensive and disturbing or is it about a general disdain for, a negative perception of people who live in the south? >> that's exactly what it is. it's not about a flag. it's about the people who live in the south. it's a perception among these people in the elites that all
southerner southerners are racists and bigots who agree with what the charleston shooter did. we saw in charleston that is absolutely true. >> and yet you've got former civil rights leaders coming out, including andrew young who says the following about the people pulling the "dukes of hazzard" which he is against. listen to him. >> the problems we face don't have anything to do with the flag. the fact is that 93% of the black people killed are killed by other black people. so if black lives matter let us start believing that we matter. >> how about that? >> he's exactly right. here soes some stats from the fbi's hate crimes database. in 2013 there were exactly five murders in america that were classified as hate crimes only one of those was anti-black.
by contrast there were 2,491 murders of african americans and 90% of those were committed by other african american there were 3,005 white people killed and 83% of those were killed by other whites. in america today if you're white, you're most likely to be killed by a white person if you're black, you're most likely to be killed by another black person and almost none of these are hate crimes. there is no race war going on in america today. >> and yet "the dukes of hazzard" has to go. tv land caved. remember this guy? jeff neely? yeah there he is. remember that? did we ever figure out if that was sangria or wine? he was doing it on your dime. you paid for the it. just ahead, see why he's now going to a place where he'll only wish they served whatever is in those glasses. plus we told you earlier this week about the college professor fired after she
equated whiteness with terrorism. guess what shp she had no trouble finding a new job and we'll show you where. and there is suddenly a big delay in the trial of sergeant bo bergdahl. lieutenant colonel tony schafer thinks he knows why and he's here to explain next why fox news and bergdahl's fellow soldiers are apparently about to get dragged into this. don't go away. >> you have an american flag on your shoulder. he's my broth, we're all going to ride together and we're all going to ride together. he i don't know how he felt about us but we would all die for him, a ♪ how's it progressing with the prisoner? he'll tell us everything he knows

army and anyone who died looking for him. >> this was the clip with our interview from some of the platoon members who served along with bo bergdahl. those soldiers coming forward after bergdahl was released more than a year ago. while some administration officials tried to discredit those men, the army did wind up charging bergdahl with dissergs. his preliminary hearing, basically like a grand jury inquiry was supposed to be last week. now there's a change. and retired lieutenant colonel tony schafer knows why. he broke the story on bergdahl's charges weeks before the pentagon announced them. you know what you speak. so this was at the defense's request that they postponed the preliminary hearing and you think you know why. you sate's two reasons. >> they've got to come up with a defense.
everybody up and to including president obama did as early as 2010 the factual surroundings of his departure. he deserted. you've got to find a scapegoat. enter fox news and his platoon mates. this filing on the 4th of june stipulates that there's a network out to vilify his client. i wonder who that could be. according to my sources, it's fox. let me point out something that katherine asked me to say. shees reached out to mr. fidel every time something new has come up the lawyer defending bergdahl. he basically says no community. vilify occasion no. they've been given every chance -- >> you're just not supposed to cover it at all. >> apparently so. >> at all. and it's not like we have no evidence of berg dahl's side of the story. we do. >> exactly. that brings me to the second point which is the platoon. if you have nowhere to go
regarding your own issues you got to be a second scapegoat which is going to be the platoon mates. they're trying to put together a defense that says that bergdahl was being victimized or traumatized and putting on the platoon mates and throwing them under the bus. they're trying to lay out a case saying my client had no choice but to go out into enemy territory looking for an army general -- i don't think we have army generals set up to work with the taliban. that's husband excuse. he went out looking for the general. >> they made that clear that his defense is going to be he went out, left his unit to go report misconduct in his unit and always right back. the problem is his anger and resentment toward the mission in afghanistan was well-documented, including his e-mail to his father before he left husband unit in which which he wrote and i quote, the horror that is america is disgusting. it doesn't really jive that well
with it was all my platoon mates. i was ready to be there until the end. >> i was disgruntled with the war in afghanistan. i wrote a book about it. there were mistakes made. you don't walk away and join the enemy if you're not happy with the way things are. you try to improv your situation. he degraded the image of the soldier, he he's try to degrade the image of his platoon mates who were trying to fight and die and save people like him in this war. ten people died looking for bergdahl. seven of ours three british, they were all out tromping through wild trying to retrieve him. this actually is as worse as you can get without having you know -- talk about traumatized, i've seen people at walter reid lose arms and limbs. i don't want to hear about bergdahl being traumatized and his family suffering from his actions. does not make any sense.
>> thanks for being here. we have an update involving a student known as ra a mattress girl. howie kurtz is next with an unbelievable look at this case. new report tonight about the president giving himself a big pat on the back for transforming the country and charles kraut hammer is here to explain why one of his own forecasts about an obama second term seems to be going as predicted. a big new twist tonight on the story of the caught on camera prank

university. the accused rapist is paul none guesser. his accuser is emma sul ka wits. they're outed their own identities. she became nationally known as the mattress there girl and the name came after she started traveling everywhere on campus with her mattress the one which she allege her assault took place. he say allege because the university applying a low burden of proof concluded she nonetheless failed to meet that burden of proof and found no sexual assault occurred. she's touted as a feminist icon from the "the new york times." new york magazine profiled her with a piece called "how to start a revolution." the wag post wrote how it was no longer just a mattress but a symbol. in fact she gained so much attention that she landed a seat at the state of the union as a
guest of new york senator kirsten gillibrand. none of which informed the people that there are serious questions about whether this young woman is a victim at all. now none guesser, the defendant, the man accused is not only suing the school he's accusing this young woman of launching a war on men. earlier tonight i spoke to casey johnson. and he's a history professor at brooklyn college. i asked him about this case. thank you for being back with us. and so once again, like we saw in the amherst kate he tried to present evidence in case favor, he tried to present evidence of texts he received from his accuser and once again the process set up by the obama
administration imposed on colleges did not allow him to do it. >> that's correct. and in the process at columbia he didn't have a lawyer. his advocate was a so-called graduate student. and the text messages cast really strong doubt about her story. he was claiming this was a violent assault, that was rape by any definition of the term. and what the text messages showed is that for several months after this alleged assault there were these flirtatious invitations from her wanting to get together once again with him. which really cast pretty severe doubt on her credibility. >> so you look at the text message ors the facebook mgs messages. two days she wrote, a shin dig in our room tonight, she writes back lol yes. two days after that she alleges a contact asking him if he wants
to hang out. then after the allege rape he sends her a greeting and she responds the next morning with i love you, paul. where are you. so the university says you didn't meet the standard no sexual assault took place. and yet after that it allows her to walk around campus even at graduation with this mattress on her back. >> the one protection that columbia provided to an accused student is that the context within this allegation was supposed to be confidential. so her doing any of these interviews violated columbia's standards and yet he was never called out for that. she received academic credit -- that was her senior thesis project carrying the mattress around campus. imagine what kind of context we're talking about when someone gets credit for a false allegation. and columbia never stepped in to
say look if these allegations, reinvestigated them and by our low standard we found out that they were not true. columbia stood aside because u think they were afraid of bad publicity, of an investigation from the administration and allowed her to go on this publicity spree. >> thanks again. >> thank for having me. >> joining us now, rich lowrie a fox news contributor and howie kurtz. good to see you both. rich all right. now we have uva, amherst, columbia not to mention duke all of these cases involve a rush to judgment to believe that the defendant male did absolutely everything hi wase was accused of with nairry a mention of his abuse. >> mattress girl is really the
hands up don't shoot, the sexual assault hysteria on campus where the narrative and the symbol are so strong that the left had this enormous will to believe, even though the facts seem to contradict that narrative. we can't ultimately know what happened in this instance. but common sense and the facts suggest that she likely made it up and this was some sort of relationship gone wrong. >> well that's the thing. the media does need to come out and say, okay it's not true. when she's reporting it. we can't know if it's true or not true. but the duty is to report both sides. you look back at the articles i just mentioned and they barely mentioned anything about his defense. they don't mention the fact that she had two sexual encounters with him, they had sex twice before the incident. they don't mention the fact that she sent his facebook message to him. a among after the alleged
assault saying i love you, i want to see you, all these lols. this is vel rant to assessing her credibility and to the media it's like it didn't happen. >> the media narrative, made a here heroin out of mattress girl. the press promoting a rape claim that turned out to be telling. "the new york times" does a big piece on this nice photo of mattress girl stories like this are playing out across campuses. splashes it on the front page. a couple of years ago. couple of months ago when this guy files suit against columbia page a-25. >> kirsten gillibrand a united states senator brought her to the state of the union and gave testimony before the state of the union saying she was rape. she didn't know that. the status is that senator
gillibrand has not updated her remarks. >> another key part of the pattern is most of the people who promote the false or likely false story never go back and say sorry, i got it wrong. and not only did senator gillibrand promote this woman and promote the story, she's sponsoring legislation to double down on this hysteria on college campuses. we've been sold this story that one out of five women are rape on college campuses. when the best evidence suggests it's more like 6 per 1,000. still one is one too many. but women are safer on college campuses than they are off college campuses. and oef the last several years campus rape has been declineingdeclining. >> i get this. this case at columbia under the low standards by the obama administration was thrown out. they had to convince them it was
51% more likely that he did it. this there were two other accusers against the same man. they were close to accuser. one of them alleging he forced her to make out with him. but the media doesn't seem to understand that whether it's race in a place like ferguson or sexual assault in a case like duke or columbia or amherst, this is not our ability to prove our -- >> i want to say why did this go viral. why all of the head lyons in the mattress was eye catching. when the guy comes out giving a defense in all of the things you mentioned, it gets a fraction of the coverage and that is a big mistake. >> what are we always told the foremost value of the media is
skepticism but again and again you don't see the barest skepticism in these sort of cases. thank you. we have an update on the pro professor who lost her job. we're look into that. she equated whiteness with terrorism. plus the president took a big victory this week for transforming the country. charles krauthammer is here on the prediction he ♪ i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line.

well from parties on the taxpayer's dime to three hots and a cop. the man in this picture is going to prison for three month pps pleading guilty to billing the feds to personal trips and the organizer behind the lavish conferences that they head including mine reeders, after-hour parties. he should have spent more time with the fortune tellers. could have told him it's not going to end well. we're seeing new reporting detailing a private conference call the held with staffers. on the call the president roort edly supported his record of transforming america on everything from health care to
normalizing relations with cuba. in to 12 prior to the president's reelection charles wrote, quote in obama's second term means that the movement toward european style democracy continues. the vid lis tick innovative risk taking model of democratic governance continues to recede yielding to the supervised life of the entitlement state. charles kraut hammer is a fox news contributor. charles, good to see you. you called it because you said that barack obama wanted to be a president like ronald reagan, not in his policies but in his legacy. and today he appear tofs declared victory on that front. is he right? >> no he's not right. but i think he's had this ambition. when he was running in 2008 he
said that reagan was consequential in way that nixon or clinton was not. ray again ended 50 years of liberticy in the country. government is not the solution of the problem, government is the problem which is a complete overturning of the whole idea of the new deal. and then he succeeds. and as a result what reagan did and what obama aspired that he could do in the reverse, reagan brought in a 30-year conservative. the proof of that in 1996 his democratic successor, bill clinton declares the era of big government is over. when the other guys are repealing political philosophy you've had a change in the trajectory. obama has always seen himself as the man whose presidency issues
in the end of the conservative time the conservative dominance that reagan had brought in. it's a little bit early to be declarkde declaring it because the reason that reagan issued in the era is because his policy succeeded. obama has this illusion that history has blessed his policies with success and therefore the new dominant obamaesque era is beginning. but history will tell. and surely in the foreign policy area where he thinks opening to cuba and appeasing iran is of the stature of reagan bringing an end to the cold war is delusional. reagan defeated the soviets which obama has accommodated cuba and aran papiran. that's not hard to do. but it's not historic of anything ben feshl. >> he also said that the reason
the country needs hillary clinton is the same reason reagan needed bush 41 the continue the enactment of his policies and making sure they survive. is the next election that consequential or can his policies be reversed by a republican president? >> that's why it's so important that he have a democratic successor. the thing that he did, the thing that could outlive him is obamacare. it's the most sweeping piece of social legislation in a generation and were it to continue and succeed it would be historic historic. it will not succeed if a republican wins the white house. it will be changed or abolished and surely replaced. all of the other stuff he's done like immigration, the change in the drug laws by executive order and regulation that will be swept away within the first week if the republicans win the presidency in 2017. that's why he needs a hillary to
succeed him. >> what do you make of his -- he took a shot at the gop field today as well and talked about how voter are going to hear a lot of misinformation as these republican candidates deny the progress made and quote make stuff up. he's going after the goppers as potential liars. your opinion on it? >> i'm impressed of the sophistication of the rhetoric. this is lincolnesque. they make stuff up. he's trying to preemptively protect his legacy but it won't be up to him. it will be history that determines whether obamacare succeeds and jimmy carter says it's brought us less respect in the world are going to succeed. he's a hostage to history, not to proclaiming his own legacy. >> it's interesting to hear this president, you know if you like your plan you can keep your plan. we didn't touch the benghazi
talking points at all. not a smidgen of corruption. talk about people making things up puppet's tough to hold the office he's held for as many years as he had au and cast the stone. up next the latest thing that makes you a sexist pig. and actress paris hilton said she plans to sue the esurance was born online. which means fewer costs, which saves money. their customer experience is virtually paperless which saves paper, which saves money.

paris hilton into a lawsuit. it was staged by an egyptian tv show host. reports are that she had nothing to do with it. now tmz reports the production company shows she knew full well what was happening and it was it was a pr stunt. what? paris hilton? say it ain't so. also new details on the public university professor blasted for her anti-white tweets we told you about earlier this week like her tweet equating whiteness with terrorism. now we're learning that she is teaching at yet another university. katherine timpf is a reporter. kat, gad to see you. so zandria robinson landed on her feet. and not only did the college hire her, but they say the criticisms of her are themselves racist. >> yes. you would think that after all this controversy, they might be second-guessing their decision to hire her. but no. they're saying these controversial comments are great. they're excited to have her. these comments will lead to free
open exchange of ideas. and i have to say, knowing what she openly admits, i would be a little afraid to exchange any ideas in her classroom, knowing that she is looking at me and thinking that i have all the makings of a mass murderer. just based on how i look. maybe they didn't think it through. >> you find it a little off putting to hear her say whiteness equals terror. she goes on from there. she talks about how the only riots that have ruined communities and cost lives in american history are those perpetrate by whites against blacks. and the list goes on and on. whiteness is inevitably terror. and yet this new university comes out and says she is a valid faculty member and that they hired her because of her extensive understanding of race in american society. so i guess we know what we need to know about rhodes college. >> right. exactly, exactly.
i spoke to another professor at rhodes college today. and he said it seems crazy to hire someone who openly dislikes such a large chunk of our student body. what's obvious here is if she had said something that offended liberal sensibilities, then she wouldn't have done so well. you look what happened to tim hunt. he made sexist jokes. nobel prize winner. his career crumbled. she is not a nobel prize winner and she is definitely not joking. this was not a single tweet. this is a repeated pattern. >> she is a believer. speaking of sexism, you mentioned tim. there's yet another way in which you can be labeled a sexist pig, and it involves commenting on something on a woman's body. >> tattoos. if you say anything about a woman's tattoos no, matter what, you're oppressing her because you're commenting about something on her body. so obviously that's oppression. obviously you're a horrible pig and a sexist and oppressing her with patriarchy if you did that. even though, i don't have any tattoos but if did i, i might want people to like them.
i don't know. >> no, no. apparently if a man comments on your tattoos, he is asserting his dominance over you. >> basically, if you're a guy, don't talk to women or else you are asserting your dominance and oppressing us. that's what some people think. i certainly hope that doesn't become more widespread. believe it or not, i like when people talk to me. >> just stay in your basement and apologize for being a man and then they'll be happy. kat, good to see you. >> good to see you too. >> we'll be right back.
i'm sorry for your loss. it still doesn't feel real. our time together was... so short. well, since you had progressive's total loss coverage, we were able to replace your totaled bike with a brand-new one. the tank...the exhaust... well, she looks just like roxie! you know, i'll bet she's in a better place now. flo: i know she is. i feel it in my heart. [ heavenly choir sings ] actually, the old roxie's over at the junkyard. flo: kkh-kkh! getting you back on a brand-new bike. now, that's progressive.
