the pilot suffered minor burns but otherwise okay. >> now we know. lee greenwood is about to perform in a very special all american concert. watch from home. "fox & friends" starts now. good morning. it's friday, july 3rd, 2015. i'm ainsley earnhart. i'm filling in for elisabeth this morning. we begin with a fox news alert. as america heads to the fireworks this weekend, the nation is on high alert. terrorists want to strike on independence day. just how real is the threat? if you are spending your fourth on the beach this weekend, many of us are, sharks are on the prowl and eating people. what you need t you hit the waves coming up. remember when the white house turned rainbow colors after the supreme court ruling, this morning, bill o'reilly has
3:01 am
another suggestion. >> how about on the fourth of july? we bathe the house in red, white, and blue. >> "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ ♪ ♪ i'm proud to be an american ♪ where at least i know i'm free ♪ and i won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me ♪ ♪ >> ladies and gentlemen, it's lee greenwood. that's our plaza right there, 48th and sixth and he will be performing live for us and for you coming up soon. >> and famous dave's barbecue. we got a jam-packed show. can you already smell it?
3:02 am
it's fantastic. >> so many wonderful reasons that we're proud to be americans. we want to hear from you at home. send us your proud american pictures, just do #proud american and we're going to be airing some of those throughout the morning show this weekend. >> that's south carolina, because our own dana perino is down in charleston this morning. >> and heather childers. >> and heather childers. we'll check in with them in a little while. >> steve, brian, and elisabeth off this morning. tucker, ainsley and clayton with you. >> what a wonderful day to be working. i love lee greenwood. >> we've got a ton of news to get this morning. we want to get to the fox news alert. a nation on edge on this fourth of july weekend. security heightened -- across the country. >> this is the perfect time for terrorists to attack. >> we're live on the national
3:03 am
mall in washington, d.c. with the very latest on these threats. doug, what do you know? >> good morning, guys. nice, quiet, peaceful outside the capitol, but there is this under current of concern. we saw the degree to which law enforcement agencies are operating under a hair trigger yesterday when there were these reports at a gunman at washington's navy yard and a lot of sensitive the involved given the fact that a dozen people were killed there in 2013 when a gunman was on the loose. this time, it ended up being an erroneous report. the flood of law enforcement there shows the degree they may be gearing up for this fourth of july holiday. >> here in washington, d.c., there's an elevated threat level at all times. we never lower our threat level in terms of our posture and we're aware what the discussion and chatter is around the fourth
3:04 am
of july events and all those threats and we take those into account. >> now, here and around the nation's capitol, we're going to see a big fireworks show and concert tomorrow night. one of the biggest events happening around the country for the fourth of july. but, the challenge with the fourth of july is that you have so many events going on from one end of the country to the other, from small towns to large cities, it becomes a real challenge for law enforcement and for u.s. intelligence agencies tracking this evolving terror threat that doesn't involve that top down hierarchy of al qaeda but rather a decentralized threat with isis trying to inspire lone wolf gunmen through the use of social media. >> unlike al qaeda of the old days, there doesn't have to be and won't necessarily be a commanding control relationship between somebody who incity investigates a -- instigates a relationship and isil. are we concerned about that? absolutely. >> the fbi concerned about this as well.
3:05 am
they send out a memo to local law enforcement agencies last week to be extra vigilant head noog this weekend. as we celebrate independence day, we put our cards right on the table with our proud american hash tag. you know where we stand. there's a sobering new poll of americans asking are you proud to be an american? we want to contrast the number that we just got from one we got about a decade ago. here's the new number. >> this was taken in early june. how proud are you to be an american, 54% extremely. only a little? who answers that. only a little patriotic. >> a little more than half our country is extremely proud to be an american. let's do it to what tucker is talking about. let's compare it to 2003 where 70% of our country said they
3:06 am
were extremely proud to be an american and the reason i believe we're seeing these numbers change dramatically over the course of 12 years is because people are not happy with this administration. i don't think it has anything to do with how proud you are with your grandparents did in world war ii. we have a producer who said we feel less pay interest tree yotic -- patriotic when you don't feel as free. >> they certainly feel under attack by this government. this is the bottom line on the administration. if you are the president of the united states, this is the main number you look at, are people happy living in the country that you run? if you see a 16 point drop, that's a referendum on you. >> it's a feeling that you are secure in your country, that your country is protecting you and when you hear all this chatter about isis and whether or not we're safe on the fourth of july and you see these horrible videos coming out of the middle east and a lack of
3:07 am
identity and plan from this administration how to tackle this problem. we saw this numbers like this prior to 9/11, the nation rallied around this catastrophic event and the numbers skyrocketed. hopefully we don't need anything like that. >> i'm struck by the number of young people who have been ashamed about the country's history. and it's not my imagination. actually, we have a monday taj here, a man called mark dice asked beachgoers why we celebrate the fourth of july. watch this. >> what are we celebrating on the fourth of july? >> our independence. >> a little more specific. >> it's the day that we overtook the south. >> the declaration of independence was signed by who? >> i don't know. >> just name one person. >> abraham lincoln.
3:08 am
>> what country did we declare our independence from? >> help me, baby. not this year. >> you are own your own. >> california. >> california. >> what are we celebrating on the fourth of july exactly? >> when we won our independence. >> from? >> those countries. >> where we declare our independence -- this is after we overtook the south. abraham lincoln signed the declaration of independence and we declare our independence from california. >> which is actually not a bad but it didn't actually happen. >> the country of california. >> the country of california. >> unbelievable. did you watch bill o'reilly earlier this week? he was fired up because of the white house being bathed in the rainbow colors following the supreme court's decision. i think over the weekend, it was saturday morning over the weekend last weekend, after the supreme court's decision.
3:09 am
well, bill o'reilly was fired up about that, thinking it shouldn't be used for political reasons that it's the people's house. he's thrown down the gauntlet for president obama to change the colors this holiday weekend. here is bill o'reilly last night. live. >> as you may know, i was not thrilled that president obama allowed the white house to reflect the rainbow colors after the gay marriage ruling. i feel the people's house should be accessible to all americans and political statements should not be made on that property. so here's a factor tip of the day and it is directed to president obama himself. how about on the fourth of july, sir, we bathe the white house in red, white, and blue? no politics. just honoring the independence of our country. we await your decision. >> but the thing is the president, the people around him, see that as a political statement. they have this harvard faculty lounge view of patriotism, where it is embarrassing and vulgar and only people clinging to
3:10 am
their bibles and firearms. >> and they have spikes around the white house. on we're putting sharp spikes on top of the fence. >> it's a government institution. leave it alone. don't bathe it in any colors. leave that for the empire state building. >> let's check in with cheryl right now who is standing by with a lock at our headlines right now. >> good morning. everyone, hello everyone at home. we're looking at a few headlines, including this. 5,000 people still out of their homes after that toxic train derailment and fire outside of knoxville, tennessee. we're learning the hazardous substance that poured from the train may also contain traces of cyanide that is raising concerns over air and water quality for the area. >> people have been taken to the
3:11 am
hospital with breathing issues, skin irritation and nausea. a missing couple case in arizona ending in tragedy. police say their bodies were found buried outside the home of 38-year-old jose venezuela a week after they went missing. he has confessed to their murders saying he used meth with the couple and he is being held on $2 million bond. donald trump's miss usa pagent has a new home. reelz channel has picked it up and will broadcast the event. while he disagrees with trump's comments, ms. usa is not a political event. there is a retired new york city firefighter and now he's a jackpot winner.
3:12 am
he hit the jackpot on a $5 million scratch-off ticket. he says he plans to take a cruise, treat his daughter and he may buy a house in florida. after taxes, he's going to take home $3.3 million. i think we all can say that he deserves everything that he just got. a scratch-off. >> i have to go buy some. >> that's a lot of tax dollars. he won $5 million and he's taking home three. >> exactly. the message is the government is going to pay for everything, and don't bother working because you could wib -- win it for free. >> sheryl, you just opened up a can of worms. >> i hate the lottery. >> i have to deal with this for the next three hours. >> if you play, you are not going to win. >> if you do, the government is going to take your money and lie to you about it. >> one guy wins -- save your money. put it in a bank account. >> same number of shark attacks
3:13 am
shocking beachgoers up and down the coast. do you know when your chances are highest of being attacked? we have a wildlife expert here next. and an unlikely reunion between a judge and an accused criminal. >> did you go to nautilus for middle school? >> oh, my goodness. >> huh-uh. but what happened next brought the entire court session to an emotional halt. you have to see this. stick around for that. only nexium 24hr gives you nexium level protection for frequent heartburn all day and all night. try nexium 24hr,

3:17 am
welcome back. you hear this story every summer but this year it is absolutely not media hype. it's real. it's danger in the water before the fourth of july weekend. we have two new victims bitten by sharks off the coast of north carolina just this week. >> the frightening encounters bringing the total number of shark attacks in this united states this year alone to 24 with thousands of families hitding the beach this weekend how can you and your family stay safe? >> there is no one better to ask this question than jeff corwin. how can people going to the beach this weekend keep themselves safe from shark attacks? >> the first thing they need to
3:18 am
realize is that the probability is remote. when we see clusters of attacks like this, we think they happen more commonly than they do in reality. you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning twice than you do of getting attacked by a shark. between one and 11 million people will ever have a negative encounter with a shark in the wild, but you can decrease that risk even though it's remote. you cannot go in the water at dusk or dawn where the light is broken up and the visibility is poor. stay out during rain storms. if there's a lot of baitfish in the area, you don't want to be in the water. >> why so many attacks recently? especially off the coast of the carolinas in that one area? >> it's most curious, but there's probably a number of reasons why this is occurring. number one, this is the breeding time, this is when lots of sharks come into this area. multiple species, like five
3:19 am
different species and they are there to pup, they are breeding. this is the nursery site. it's also feeding time many we're getting great migrations of sea turtles in. you have coastal birds hatching out. all this flurry of food activity makes it a hot shark zone. >> is there a step you can take? how do you not look like a sea turtle to the shark? are there certain bathing suits that are more provocative, jewelry? >> you want to go to those shell free beaches, which are a little bit of controversial. one thing you can do is not wear a lot of glittering jewelry, not to say that a shark is going to attack you, but things that resemble a fish scale may get a predatory fish's attention. you want to be careful when you are in the water, what time you are in the water, and certainly if there's a lot of shark activity, if you are being in a place where there's been a
3:20 am
number of shark attacks, it tells you that something is up in that area where you may want to be careful at what time you are going in, but for the most part people shouldn't be that concerned. it really is incredibly remote and around the world shark species overall are in a lot more trouble than human kind is. in fact, about 70 to 90% of all sharks today are threatened. >> if you do get attacked and survive, it is a great story, i will say that. thanks for joining us. >> i've got a great survival technique. all you have to do is be faster than the slowest swimmer and you will be fine. >> that's right. that's good. coming up next, nascar putting on the brakes on the kverg. -- confederate flag. >> uncle sam, did you know he was a real guy with a life and a real family? you can meet the direct zeed --

granddaughter and in that baby book she had some information about her grandfather, uncle sam, who was first known as samuel -- his name was samuel wilson and he was a meat packer actually out of troy, new york, and he supplied beef and pork to the army in the war of 1812. because he was that inspector, he won the contract to supply the army, he would stamp his meat u.s. and ship it on to the army base. when the troops received it there, they realized that this was the uncle sam that they knew from troy, new york, and so, therefore, they knew him, they felt comfortable with him and they knew it was quality and high standard and automatically
