from the state capitol. martha: it was an amazing scene surrounded by the families of the charleston church shooting victims. nikki haley signed a bill that will see that flag taken down and sent to a museum. >> i didn't know i would ever be able to say this again but today i'm proud to say it's a great day in south carolina. martha: a massacre at a charleston church took the lives of three people gathered for a bible study meeting and that renews the fight to remove the flag. >> reporter: you can see a crowd is gathering around the
6:02 am
monument awaiting the flag's removal scheduled an hour from now. an honor guard with the south carolina highway patrol will present the flag to the curator of a museum where it will be placed on permanent display. this flag flew on statehouse property for half a century. in the early 1960s it was moved as a compromise move, but not everyone was happy with it. yesterday governor nikki haley signed a bill authorizing the removal of the bill but said it would take place during a proper ceremony treating the flag with respect. >> we are a state that believes in tradition history and respect so we'll privilege it down with dignity and make sure it' put in its rightful place.
6:03 am
>> reporter: that rightful place being the state's relic room and war museum. representing each of those lives in charleston those pens presented to relatives to each of those victims. as you might imagine reaction has been mixed while many people were thrilled with the governor's decision, there are many with family members relatives who have fought in the civil war who held the symbol near and dear. many of them were disappointed in the decision although not all. some people even with ancestors who fought in the civil war understand. this is a symbol not all south carolinians rally behind. they join in the chance for one
6:04 am
state, one flag. martha: greece's fate in the hand of the eurozone finance ministers. they will decide whether the leaders should begin the process to leave the eurozone this sunday or remain part of the eurozone. the proposal had a lot the central bankers wanted from greece. that's one the greek voters rejected a few days ago. >> reporter: it's look more and more like as we first reported yesterday that greece by extension europe, and even the united states could get lucky and there might be a bailout deal. the greek prime minister alexis
6:05 am
tsipras huddling with his politicians today trying to get them to sign on. it's a tough package he submitted to the european union that includes tax hikes paycuts and pension reforms. some say it's even worse than measures he criticized just a few of days ago. but a package has been drawn up that includes money for growth and development and possibly a budget to reduce greece's debt. banks remain mostly closed. withdrawals from atms are limited. just a taste of what perhaps an actual exit from the euro could be like. take a listen to some reaction we got today. i don't think it will be worse. i think it will be better.
6:06 am
>> the alternative the alternative is nuts. >> reporter: tomorrow the important meeting with the finance ministers is scheduled for sunday. they will frattify a yes or no. germany has been mostly critical of greece and they could still cause trouble. the moneymen seem to be behind the possibility of a deal. european stock markets are up dramatically. wall street futures are up as well. martha: sometimes they know before everybody else does. gregg, thank you very much. bill: the f.b.i. director james comey said the united states foiled a lot of isis attacks on theth of july.
6:07 am
he said some of them were focused on the 4th of july and that's as specific as i can get. steve hayes good morning to you in toledo, ohio. you call it a short-term wish. why? >> any time law enforcement breaks up one plot much less several plots they are find can the proverbial needle in the haystack. the longer-term problems still exist, however. you have potentially isis related plots against the homeland and the united states. and you have the possibility of a mass casualty attack near the united states inspired and directed by isis and we mustment forget about died. bill: we just gave the headline but inside of his testimony when
6:08 am
they talked about encrypted messages and how the government cannot access these encrypted messages. it's got to change. >> the law enforcement community has been working with technology companies to open a window for law enforcement to get access to these encrypted messages. we have come a throng way in our war on terrorism and pursuit of al qaeda in understanding how they operate. bill: one more thing did you finds any good news in his testimony? >> not much. i thought the most sobering attack was when he talked about the opm attack. he said when you have these
6:09 am
forms you have know everything about senior officials. he walked through that in rather stark testimony. bill: as you points out you have got to stay at it. steven hayes live this morning from yoaf with us. martha: there fist fallout from the deadly terror attack on a beach resort in tunisia last month. this was such a shocking attack. but britain in particular, they are calling for their citizens to leave the country. they are saying they believe another terror attack there is highly likely. officials say 3,000 are in the country of tunisia. tunisia is saying they have done everything they to be protect tourists. among the 38 killed, 30 were
6:10 am
british nationals. bill: the government confirming a data breech at opm. hackers so many information from 21 million people, including details about their medical and financial history. investigators believe the hackers were from china. some people are calling for this woman, the director, to resign. so far she has refused to resign. jason chaffetz is leading in the the push for her to step down. martha: the big apple is breaking out the confetti giving

6:12 am
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:15 am
martha: a happy ending for three sisters missing on a hike this weekend. they were found in the national forest south of yellowstone. a helicopter spotted them and basically they think they went off the trail and got lost. couldn't find their way back on to the trail. the family is obviously very thankful. >> as you can imagine my wife and i are very relieved and thankful they are safe. i couldn't be more proud of the local sheriff's department and the search and rescue people that were overwhelming us with help and support to find our family.
6:16 am
martha: officials say the sisters are experienced hikers. they just got off the trail which can happen, and they couldn't find their way back. bill: vladimir putin speaking at a summit saying he hopes an agreement on iran's nuclear program will be reached soon and the sanctions should be lifted as soon as the deal is signed. thousands are chanting death to america and down with israel while burning the israel and american flag. kt macfarland is the deputy secretary of defense in the reagan administration. >> this is not open-ended, president obama made it clear to can't wait forever for the decision to be made. we know that.
6:17 am
it's a tough decision. we are prepared to call an end to this process. bill: can you tell me why we are still there? >> the obama administration has been in a test are iran. he wants that iran deal. he wants his legacy seemed. they think if they stick around long enough they will get their deal. what they don't understand, this is standard operating procedure. there is always an 11th hour request to reef negotiate the deal. it was done after the vietnam war and they did it to reagan with the nuclear arms test. we hold all the high cards and we are not using them. we are not playing our hand. they need this deal more than we do.
6:18 am
bill: they are making pictures with the chinese leaders and vladimir putin. and russia wants to sell iran arms immediately if they could. >> this is why we have a lot of high card in this. the chinese want to buy iran's e europeans want to sell cars and other manufactured goods to iran. they want to invest in the iranian energy industry. we can say look, you guys don't do what we want to you do with any time, any place inspections, sanctions lifted over time. you aren't going get any of these goodies. that's where our leverage is. no any time, any place inspections and all sanctions lifted on day one. that means they can cheese and there is nothing we can do about it. >> the only way to save the deal
6:19 am
is the counterintuitive get up and walk away. saying call me when you are ready to do -- >> do you see that happening or not? >> you have got to have a current reagan. when he walked away from the negotiating table everybody said to him oh, my gosh, president reagan you are going to walk away from the deal of the century, reagan knew the russians would be back because they had to be back. what obama doesn't understand is the iranians will be back because they have to be back. the same people chanting death to america they want a western economy, they want to buy apple i phones in tehran. they won't be able to do any of that in an economy that's in very bad shape. we hold the economic high card. bill: quuds day in iran.
6:20 am
martha: firefighters defying death, rushing into a burning home moment before a massive explosion. bill: the american women's soccer team get an honor few people in this country have experienced. super poligrip seals out more food particles. so your food won't get stuck and you can enjoy every single bite. eat loud, live loud, super poligrip.

6:22 am
6:23 am
bill: ash spewing into the air and closing airports and
6:24 am
stranding travelers. airport officials explaining the thick ash can clog the plane's engines and damage part of the aircraft. martha: the women's national soccer team taking a well-earned victory lap in downtown manhattan. the team is being honored with a rare new york ticker tape parade. it's really exciting down there from what we hear. city hall adorned with american flags and lucky fans trickling in. the world champions will wind up here after their historic ride through the canyon of heroes. they will make their way north
6:25 am
with met at barricade and a lot of fans grabbing prime spot to cheer on the best female soccer players on the planet. they beat japan 5-2. it was a sweet revenge victory because they lost to japan in a penalty kick last time. 60 minute in carli lloyd scored a hat trick which was a bomb from mid-field. there have been 200 ticker tape parade down broadway. others have been honored like neil armstrong and amelia earhart. >> this is even better. in this day and age with all the fan support. being in l.a. live and coming back here to end it with a
6:26 am
parade. it's pretty amazing. >> reporter: we'll hear more when the speeches begin around 1:00 this afternoon. martha: they are proud of them. they are a fantastic group of women. it's been joyful to watch this celebration. you watch this play out. this is the decision of mayor deblasio in new york to welcome them here. how does this get paid for? >> reporter: the total cost of the parade is $2 million. they raised $450,000 in private donations. people were calling into try to give money were being turned away. the city's non-profit had no way to process private donations. the city said they are accepting donations from anyone who wants
6:27 am
to help fund this parade which will be paid for ultimately by somebody. it's happening soon. martha: why does it cost $2 million to close off some street and let people go down. why does it cost $2 million? you have got police and security working anyway. maybe put some additional people there. please explain. bill: i think the city did a good job jumping on this idea. martha: i would like a breakdown on the cost. bill: donald trump's momentum and some poll numbers. is he hurting the republicans? martha: presidents clinton and bush appearing together and boy, did they say some funny stuff. >> clinton and i are getting a
6:28 am
little long in the tooth these days. >> this is the one month of the year when he's older than me. so speak for yourself.
6:29 am
6:30 am
6:31 am
bill: china bounced back today on the stock exchange and it looks like there might be a deal in greece as well. we'll see how we close out the week in new york. martha: growing questions about whether donald trump is hurting the republican party as he continues to defend his immigration comments. a "washington post" open op-ed says
6:32 am
his popularity will fizzle out. he enjoys disparaging them, she says they are doaps and highlighting their weaknesses. but other hand he will make the most of them as measured, thoughtful and mature. martha: welcome brad and martha. you can't avoid talking about donald trump because he's getting a lot of attention. and he's getting a lot of support and people look at him saying there is something i like about what he's saying. >> the brashness and unfiltered political speech is refreshing, that's true. but it can also be extremely
6:33 am
outrageous and outside the norms of decency as we have seen from donald trump. the worst thing about him is how twicive his unfiltered speech is. yes, it can hurt the republican party. the question is how long will donald trump hang in there. if he's not the nominee he won't be president. martha: no one knows what's going to happen. sean hannity asked him would you support not knee if it's not you and would you consider a third party one will run and here is -- a third-party return and here is what he said. >> i have to see who wins. i think we are going to win. i think our message is much better.
6:34 am
>> martha: what do you make of that? >> the thing appealing about trump this far out in the game is there is not much at stake to find him a little bit appealing. it feels unpolitician-like. he's a good side show. the problem with trump is he does take positions that mainstream in the party. then when he developed them as his own they become ridiculous and other politicians can't be looking like they are taking these ridiculous positions. trump was riding hard on obama with his birth certificate. but when trump was digging in so strong it made the whole issue look ridiculous. martha: peggy noonan writes ...
6:35 am
he's faring well in these polls. the big winner is getting 17%. donald trusm is ranking 10%. he's going there today to try to move that number higher. >> as we get closer to new hampshire, a lot of things will happen. and people will start focusing on those who have a chance. those people who have policies and positions. and that have a record of accomplishment outside of biz. running politics is not running a business. running a government is a lot different. martha: a lot of people listen to him and say i hate the business of politics. i'm sick of politicians.
6:36 am
i'm tired of them just wanting to get elected another round. he says he wants to make america great again and he's not afraid to say some of the things on people's minds brad. i wonder who in the republican field do you think will fill that void if he does drop out. who is going to speak the way many americans feel is a voice that's not being spoken for them. >> i think we have many good candidates like john case i can coming up. we have bobby jindal, am governor as well. we have jeb bush, two-term successful governor. we have marco rubio a successful senator. we have a lot of people being drowned out by the trumpness of politics. these people are good people. yes, they are politicians but they are all so states people. the resumes are impressive. can i get that resume and also get a fighter. someone month is willing to be a
6:37 am
fighter. that's what's resonate being donald trump. that becomes the question. for people out there saying i like some of what he's saying and i like the fact that he doesn't give a hoot what other people think. >> what it is at its core, we have seen such a corrosive influence of money and politics. people feel their opinion doesn't matter. so people feel like they like the idea he is speaking just for himself. but what comes out now maybe for some and other will reveal themselves to to supporting them. it's really just the trump show. in the peril primary states, iowa new hampshires and south carolina the voters take their roles very seriously. i don't know if you are going
6:38 am
get that one-on-one where you feel like you are being heard. martha: there is something else these other candidates need to pay attention to. so we'll see. we'll see who can do it. emily, good to see you. thanks as well. bill: george w. bush at a leadership conference speak intght joys of being grandparents and how they have become good friends. the politics of today and both families are both seeking the white house again. >> i know jeb and i'm confident secretary hillary will elevate the discourse. i can't attest to their surrogates. i can attest to this surrogate. i'm not going to be a surrogate.
6:39 am
>> sort of culture of anger and resentment. we have to rights above anger to answers. martha: they have risen above anger. when you have think about the election bill clinton won and george w. bush's father lost to bill clinton these were tense times between the clintons and the bushes. it's remarkable the friendship they have forged. and it's funny. it's like a stand-yum routine. bill: this will be the talk of the country for a long time to come. we'll have some questions too. you and i will have some questions. martha: august 6 fox news and facebook team up to bring you have the presidential debate live from cleveland. and you can submit your
6:40 am
questions to tell bill and i what you would like to hear. you can go to and tell us what you want to know because we are in the process of putting together or questions and thinking about this and talking to people saying what would you want to be asked of these candidates that would be speaking to in the first week of august. >> we have got some questions. bill: debris blown hundreds of feet after a home explodes. firefighters on their way inside when this happened. you will see the insulation blow these guys back and fill the streets. martha: calls for president obama to take action after a massive data breach that exposed the private information of millions of americans from a federal agency. jason chaffetz is live on that next. >> it's an act of war to steal
6:41 am
that information. what they do with it. it's going to be, you can see some real tough policy. [ female announcer ] everything kids touch at school sticks with them. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around. use clorox disinfecting products. you handle life; clorox handles the germs. this is judy. judy is 65 years old. her mortgage payment is $728 a month. that's almost $9,000 a year now judy doesn't think that she'll be able to retire until her mortgage is fully paid off. this is mike. mike is also 65 years old. his monthly mortgage payment was $728 a month. now mike thought he would have to work for another 12 years until his mortgage was paid off. and then mike heard that a reverse mortgage may help him. he called one reverse mortgage to get the details. mike retired immediately
6:42 am

6:45 am
house when we heard a boom and then the ceiling fell. martha: a mother and her 18-month-old child were living in the home but made it out. they were treat forward smoke inhalation. the kawchts that fire is under investigation. bill: we know the source of the data stolen from opm. jason chaffetz is calling for the resignation of the head of that agency. in a conference call yesterday she said she's staying put. >> she should be fired.
6:46 am
her competence is --er incompetence is stunning and she has little knowledge of the facts. bill: you are saying she knew about this 8 years ago. you said she consciously ignored the warnings. she is making the case because of her we know about this breach. >> the inspector general has been warning about this. he said there was such vulnerability they should shut the system down. this is a 1960s system with no encryption no authentication. in this day and age come on. that's totally inexcusable. bill: yesterday she said i'm committed to the work i'm doing. i understand the impact this has on our current and former employees, military personnel
6:47 am
and our contracts. even if you get a termination. you think about united airlines and the new york stock exchange. the privacy of 20 million americans. where they live, their addresses, family members, relatives, personal health information. how do we make sure the american people can trust these institutions with their most personal information? >> in large part they shouldn't have this information. if there is not an active investigation why is the government continuing to hold this information? they should purge this information. they should warm this stuff off. so the basic cleanliness the government is putting into the system is just not there. it begs the question why should you ever trust the federal government. bill: what can you do about this? >> the president has some tough
6:48 am
decisions about what is the retribution. how do we fire back. it sort of an act of war to come in and steal that information. what they do with it. you will see tough policy implications. but there is a ghost war going upon back and forth. you don't see it. it's going over the wires but it's pervasive on every american. >> people want to know who in washington will make sure this doesn't happen again. when they first put out the word a couple week ago we thought it was 4 million. it's five times that. >> i think they knew that number was bigger than that when they got going. the word on the street is these hackers had been in there for more than a year. and these are just ones we know about. so you have to use the basic cleanliness and things that are encrypted. there is a discussion in washington about should your phones be encrypted.
6:49 am
the f.b.i. and others don't want it encrypted. i want it encrypted. i want my wife's phone to be encrypted. bill: you are raising the issue whether your personal information should even be with the government. our lives are wrapped around technology whether we like it or not. last answer. >> be careful. you don't need to put everything online. you don't have to be totally plugged on every single thing. my daughter has grown up in a generation where everything is online and it scares me long term. martha: four american held in captivity in iran, including a christian pastor. so what about these individual in these ongoing nuclear talks? they are talking about lifting the human right sanctions against iran.

6:57 am
across america, people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes
6:58 am
or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar.
6:59 am
the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. martha: we have about to witness a simple ceremony about to get underway in south carolina but it is packed with meaning. an honor guard will remove the confederate battle flag from the grounds of the state capitol in columbia, south carolina. welcome everybody. brand new hour now of "america's newsroom." i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. good morning. state officials looking forward to a near era they remove a proud but for many a painful symbol of the past. governor haley yesterday swiftly signing a bill for the flag to come down three weeks after the
7:00 am
massacre of nine people inside the historic black church in charleston, south carolina. martha: she took swift action in this whole case. fox news digital politics editor chris stirewalt joins us. i ace beautiful morning in south carolina. just three weeks ago nine people were slaughtered at ame emanuel church in charleston, south carolina. nikki haley said she wanted flag to come down. she stuck to her guns on this and indeed it is happening today. >> nothing quite like the redemptive power of grace. when we see real grace real graciousness on exhibit in our political space it a stunning rarity. and i would say the thing that brought us to this moment, maybe more than anything was the grace demonstrated by the families of the victims in that slaughter, when they forgave the killer. i think that set a tone. it set a space in which no unghraib schussness could be deemed acceptable. martha: you're absolutely right.
7:01 am
in her comments yesterday governor haley basically true the line, very beautifully i thought, from what happened, the horrible slaughter that happened in that church but when it began as a bible study meeting where these individuals welcomed this young man as she put it, didn't look like them didn't talk like them they didn't recognize him they weren't familiar with him. they allowed him to come into their room listened to them when they studied bible, even according to one of the witnesses of that horrible massacre, he said something to the effect everyone was so nice but i had to carry out my mission. such a stunning contrast in violence and love and grace as you say, and then nikki haley gave nine pens to the families of each of these victims. chris talk to us a little bit about the importance of the symbol of this flag and its very complicate meaning for many?
7:02 am
>> the secession movement was born in south carolina, not even in 1861 with the bombing of fourth sumter, but before that in the days of andrew jackson. we stretch back nearly 200 years to south carolina rebelling against the federal government, rebelling against the united states that says if you will not let us be our way we will leave. and for many in south carolina, that battle flag doesn't have anything to do or much to do at all with slavery but instead south carolina's long-standing struggle against a federal government they have always believed and long believed was intrusive into their ways of life and was wrongly conducted. for this flag which didn't reach its current point of display until during the civil rights movement, and it was seen as a, a pushback against that movement, that was dictated from washington, for that flag to be
7:03 am
coming down, for it to be coming down of the accord of the people of south carolina of the accord of republicans and democrats, of descendants of confederate soldiers and descendants of slaves, coming together the time is come to take this down to mend our broken hearts, that is something special. and something i would point out that politicians in washington might learn a good thing from. martha: yeah. i mean when you think back to 50 years ago during the civil rights movement the fact that that was when this flag was raised to the top of the capitol dome and that made a very strong statement in that moment. and that is the long history of this, moving from the dome, because of the meaning that was associated with the rising of that flag on that flagpole during the civil rights movement. so the flight to have it moved to another area of the capitol grounds there in columbia and now today, it will come down and why? because of the actions of this
7:04 am
crazed man who went into this church. you can hear in the background we're looking at left-hand side of the screen, lots of people are gathering. we know there is a barricade to keep people at certain distance from all of this. they are concerned there could be protests. they don't want anything to get out of hand as it happens. it will be simple dignified removal. take no more than ten minutes. no music will be played. a state law enforcement honor guard will take care of handing it down. they will hand it to the head of the south carolina relic room and museum. there is nikki haley as she watches into this proceeding. this has risen her profile no doubt in the rest of the country as she has taken this on. >> she has given her traditional political opponents the opportunity to do the right thing and they have. you would be surprised how often, not just in politics but in life, we give people the chance to do the right thing
7:05 am
very often they will do it. what nikki haley said to the opponents of this flag, we'll move in your direction. we're going to show grace and show compassion and mercy to you. now i ask you to do the same and they did. by and large, what the openpoints of this flag long-time opponents of this flag, liberal democrats and black democrats and others in government and south carolina did, give descendants of confederate soldiers a chance and room to breathe. in doing so made all this possible. if they would have piled on, if they would have come harder done in hate, done in resentment, we wouldn't be at this moment. martha: yeah. we should point out that john boehner spoke out about this, basically not wanting to make this a political football. this flag will fly on private property anywhere that people want it to. it is the government's statement in the leadership of south carolina that it will not
7:06 am
fly on the grounds of the state capitol anymore but you will still see this flag around chris. >> well, sure. you will see it more for a time as people who are want to embrace the idea of the confederate, confederate soldier who want to honor that in part. you will also see it from people who want to use it for hateful purposes. it will be used by people who use it for decent purposes. it will be used by people who use it hatefully, but in short will be very american. it will be done right it will be done wrong it will be messy. but when governments do things it is different than what people do things. this is government that says we'll not do this anymore because it is too hurtful and too divisive. martha: you see the signs victory, it is coming down. we expect this to happen any moment. we'll get to jonathan serrie. bill: there is a big crowd down there. we're not quite sure how many people would turn out.
7:07 am
we'll try to ride the appropriate way depending how the people react there and depending what the governor does. the newspaper described this as simple dignified removal of the flag. plans not made public. there some information we know. for that jonathan serrie can fill us in live at the capitol building. >> reporter: hi, bill. certainly. we're told that the south carolina highway patrol honor guard will process to the flag, take it down fold it and hand the flag to the curator of the state-run war museum which will eventually house the flag on permanent display bill. bill: jonathan, thank you. we will pause for a moment here just to take in this scene from columbia on a beautiful summer july morning in the palmetto state.
7:08 am
[background noises] [shouting]
7:09 am
[cheers and applause] [cheers and applause]
7:10 am
[shouting] >> usa! usa! usa! usa!
7:11 am
>> na, na hey hey good-bye. [cheering]
7:12 am
[applause] bill: the cheers were evident. the applause obvious. some chanting usa, usa. toward the end, hey hey, good-bye. the confederate flag has now been removed from the flagpole on the grounds of the state capitol building there in columbia south carolina. it will now be taken by alan wilbersons, the director of the south carolina confederate room and relic military museum about a mile from the statehouse where you're looking at now where the florida will be taken. martha: watch the honor guard as they leave the scene. this is the same honor guard that ushered body of clementa pinckney into the statehouse for his funeral. what amazing awful tragic,three weeks
7:13 am
it has been since the shootings in that church in south carolina. it has sparked something quite meaningful for that state and also meaningful for people in this country. there is nikki haley as she observed this. there is so much said how quickly all of this happen and when you consider years and years of debate that existed over this issue. there it is the flag now handed to alan roberson, the head of the south carolina confederate relic room and military museum. that is where the flag will be resigned to. bill: they described it's a simple, dignified removal and no music, sounds of crowd near by. jonathan serrie in the crowd. what do you see around you? >> reporter: hi bill, we're seeing a huge crowd. i can hear the cheers, a lot of people now walking away from the scene. for many people mixed emotions. in the background you may see some of the confederate flags of
7:14 am
supporters of keeping the flag have been holding up as they keep a vigil here. the remarkable thing throughout this whole ordeal is that, just the friendliness that you would see among people from opposing viewpoints. in many cases someone holding a confederate battle flag next to a person holding a poster for the flag to be taken down engaged in cordial conversation. this is south carolina, a friendly state a polite state and you know in the wake of that shooting down in the church in charleston where everyone came together and held hands across the ravenel bridge, anecdotally one man shouted, this is how we riot in charleston. instead they responded not with violence but with a show of unity. there was a discussion that went on in this statehouse a discussion involving all sides, people talking about why that confederate flag is important to
7:15 am
them, not as a symbol of racism, but a symbol of their past people also explaining why that same flag is so hurtful for them, given their relatives in many cases were brought to this state in chains. that discussion went on. people listened respectfully and then finally a decision was made. but because the decision went on even though many people are not happy with this decision, and others are thrilled with the decision, everyone here is being cordial, friendly and getting along as you would expect in this state of south carolina. bill: you know martha, it was simple. it was 15 minutes and it is over. martha: indeed it is and the people will move on. the lowering the flag, which we just witnessed it took no more than ten minutes in its entirety the ceremony but it is years and years in the making. there is a scene on beautiful day in capitol of
7:16 am
south carolina columbia. no doubt people are happy, people are unhappy with this decision but a decision reached by the governor and by the leadership in the state of south carolina. and it is now done. fascinating to watch all of this develop this morning. bill: we'll bring in the senior senator from south carolina lindsey graham. he is campaigning in new hampshire today. we'll talk to him in a couple minutes on this scene that you're about to see from the aerial, how many people in south carolina turned out for this moment today. our coverage continues. [cheers and applause]
7:17 am
[cheers and applause] the decision to ride on and save money. he decided to save money by switching his motorcycle insurance to geico. there's no shame in saving money. ride on, ride proud. geico motorcycle great rates for great rides.
7:18 am
i have lung cancer. and i've heard it all... the well-meaning advice of friends... the guarded words of doctors... the brave resolve of loved ones... what i haven't heard... what a lot of us haven't heard nearly enough... new news. over 430,000 americans are living with lung cancer today. in fact, every two and a half minutes another person is diagnosed. although there are known risk factors anyone can get lung cancer. and every case is different. but now patients could be hearing some unexpected news. this news goes beyond what you may know today. research is leading to scientific advancements... that could offer some patients the potential of longer life... and the chance to share more moments and memories.
7:19 am
news in lung cancer? now, i'm listening. if you have lung cancer, you haven't heard it all. yet. talk to your doctor today for more information on lung cancer. and call now... or visit for a free patient education kit.
7:20 am
bill: so it appears the crowd is starting to move away after we just watched this together a few moments ago. lowering of confederate flag on grounds of state capitol in columbia, south carolina. thousands cheering, some chanting usa, usa. we believe at the moment the flag is being moved less than a mile away enroute to the museum known as the south carolina confederate relic room an
7:21 am
military museum. not a lot of information on how it will be on display there. that information coming in coming days or perhaps weeks from now. that is the moment we all watched here on "america's newsroom." martha: there are new questions today about the fate of four americans who are still being held in prisons in iran. as the united states continues to try to negotiate a nuclear deal with that country "washington post" bureau chief jason rezaian, and a mere hekmdai saeed abedini, and robert levinson is missing eight years believed to be tied to the intelligence committee. pastor abedini has been taken prisoner since december of 2012. his family has been fighting for his release ever since. his wife joins me now and jay
7:22 am
sekulow helping her with her fight. chief council for the american center of law and justice. they have been with us many times on this story. welcome, first of all, to you both. glad to have you with us this morning. >> hey martha. martha: i can imagine what foes in your mind as you listen about possible concessions being made and lifting human rights sanctions against tehran potentially while your husband is being held. is there any indication they would be released if a deal is reached? >> you know it has been really nerve-wracking. i had many sleepless nights including last night, and as the deal continues to get extended. i think if no deal is reached it will be much harder to get him out and if a deal is reached we still lose our leverage over iran. we lost our greatest before we sat down with them, could have is set it as a precondition to get saeed out.
7:23 am
seems getting harder. martha: jay, you think back to another time, hostages held, 52 of them, in the american embassy in tehran. >> sure. martha: jimmy carter tried to get them out for a very long time. and you know, somewhat political irony, and other things you could call it, 20 minutes after ronald reagan became president of the united states during his inaugural speech, those hostages were put on a plane and sent out of the country. so, political messages by tehran are manipulatively done and not opportunities to be missed for them, correct? >> that's correct. and, martha, you bring up a good analogy. look part of the issue when ronald reagan was sworn into office was the iranian regime the islamic republic of iran, which it became in 1979 of course, the fact of the matter is they knew with ronald reagan they would face real force and real consequences for their actions. right now what happened, echoing what nagmeh said, each moment
7:24 am
going by right now we're losing leverage. the idea we're in these final moments or days of negotiations with the iranians, we don't have the americans released, it wasn't a precondition is absolutely absurd. i am calling on the white house and secretary of state kerry right now to make sure that these americans, whatever deal or no deal, that is struck these americans are released. this is absurd, we're sitting, united states secretary of state is significant nine feet away at a table on a table, they're nine feet away at this table staring at foreign minister of iran and we don't have americans released? it is not acceptable. this is not negotiations. and each time the white house gets a chance to talk about they say being brought up on the peripheries. being brought up on the side. but we're concentrating on this nuclear agreement. and, the fact of the matter is, you look at that table right there as you have seen it a few moments ago on air the fact of matter i can't imagine how the
7:25 am
united states hasn't had the courage and ability to get these americans, these four americans certainly three we know of there possibly a fourth. martha: the question is are they? you said something interesting. you said well, we're hearing it has been brought up on the periphery. their focus is nuclear negotiations. so i mean could it be that that is implicit in this deal? john kerry said many times, look for all the critics out there, nobody knows what we're talking about. nobody knows what is actually in the deal. is it possible that is part of the deal? >> anything is possible. i will remain hopeful my job as nagmeh's advocate use every level of government we have the ability of using to secure the release of saeed abedin any. i am really concerned, i hate bringing this up with nagmeh on the camera with me here. i will say this can you imagine on the air next week and a deal is struck with iran and those americans are still
7:26 am
incarcerated? how does that play in world opinion? what does that say about american strength? that is what i'm concerned about. i'm not concerned about interview we're having right now. i'm concerned how we have the interview next week. martha: nagmeh, what do you think about possibility? >> i say ups and downs in the last three years and seeing my worst fear come to life where my kids have grown up without their father really actually only strengthed my faith in my lord and savior jesus christ even more. learned to let go. it is nerve-wracking, i have to admit. i cry myself to sleep many night waiting for the return of my husband and father of my kids. my faith has gotten stronger. you can't go through the motions of religion when something like this happens and you just get strong. i've gotten strong in my faith. i'm glad about that. martha: huge credit to you. you have been very strong throughout all of this. i know that you've gone to the highest level of talking to president obama about this,
7:27 am
asking him ardently to please do something to have your husband released as part of all of this. how, let me ask you before i let you go how is saeed doing? what is the latest that you have heard? >> you know, he is not doing very well. his condition is not very good. his nutrition, his health, psychologically, they're putting pressure on him. every minute he goes by his health is deteriorating. i'm really worried about when he gets, really in what condition he will be released and what the father of my children will receive and husband i would receive. i'm really concerned about that. martha: we want you to see that day and work from there, that is the goal and i know, jay, you've been working on that for a long time. these are precious moments in this fight are they not, jay and then we've got to go? >> we're in the most critical phase of not only the negotiations with the islamic republic of iran but release of the americans. this is the final hours and one
7:28 am
way or another, deal or no deal, the fate of these americans are at stake and i just encourage everybody to pray for these families and pray for the release of these americans. martha: we hope and pray these americans will be released, deal or no deal as you put it. thank you very much to you both. good to see you. >> thank you martha. >> thanks, martha. bill: we have breaking news here. associated press reporting that the actor omar sharif has died in a cairo egypt hospital apparently of a heart attack at age of 83. best known for his roles in classic films of lawrence of arabia and dr. zhivago. received, oscar nomination for his role in david lean 1962 epic, "lawrence of arabia". won award in "dr. zhivago." he suffered a heart attack this afternoon at a hospital in cairo. omar sharif, dead at age of 83.
7:29 am
what a life. 28 past, confederate flag no longer flies at south carolina capital. reaction from presidential candidate and south carolina senator lindsey graham. he is next. there's just one last thing to do: check with truecar. car prices change all the time for all kinds of reasons. but truecar pulls in the latest, most accurate data so i can be sure if i'm getting a great price. this is truecar.
7:30 am
7:31 am
7:32 am
martha: very interesting exchange. joint chiefs nominee joseph dunce ford faced tough questions during a confirmation hearing on everything from isis to the threat from china. what he said about russia raising eyebrows today. national security correspondent jennifer griffin joins us live from the pentagon. so jennifer, what did he say in there. >> reporter: martha, some were surprised that he ranked isis fourth in terms of national security threats facing the u.s. here is how general dunford ranked threats. number one russia, number two china number three, north korea, and number four, isis. >> if i had to rack and stack
7:33 am
today russia down number one. china down number two. >> certainly general dunford spent a lot of time thinking about these issues, hag his own view, would be first to admit that reflects his own view an doesn't necessarily reflect the view, or consensus analysis of the president's national security team. >> reporter: gerald dunford was reflecting view of joint chiefs that isis won't pose an existential threat but russia with nuclear weapons and general dunford described as alarming behavior of late could, martha. >> pretty interesting given debate conversation between president obama and mitt romney, where mitt romney thought rush that posed the greatest threat and was basically mocked by the president. this is all kind of surprising all of this, isn't it jennifer? >> reporter: there were more surprises. went a further against strategy to arm ukraine against russia, echoing secretary ash carter at
7:34 am
his confirmation hearing. >> gentlemen from, a military perspective it is reasonable to provide support to the ukraine i don't know. frankly out the that support they will not be able to protect themselves against russian aggression. >> reporter: that is music to john mccain's ears. he chastised the white house not doing more to arm the ukrainians. dunford didn't pull punches whether the pen gone had a viable option to deal with iran's nuclear program. >> does the united states have the military capability to destroyer ran's nuclear program. >> my understanding is, that we do, senator. >> reporter: message likely to be heard lout and clear in tehran. martha: if we do may get very different chairman of the joint chiefs. fascinating to watch this. jennifer, thank you very much. bill: 20 minutes ago you saw the confederate flag removed from the grounds of the capitol building in columbia, south carolina. the crowd nearby cheering.
7:35 am
as that ceremony lasted less than 15 minutes. south carolina senator, presidential candidate, lindsey graham, is not in south carolina today. he is on the stump running for the presidency. live in new hampshire. senator, how are you and good morning to you? >> well, i'm doing good, thank you. bill: there is a bit of delay on the signal. try to get through that as best we could or can now. you saw some of the images from columbia. what was your view of that? because earlier in the week you said that the flag had to come down thank god it has. >> well it is a historic moving day. i was born in 1955. the flag has been up most of my life. if we had not taken the flag down we could not have movedded forward as the state. congratulations to the governor and statehouse. after the shooting in charleston we could have done one of two things, become more divisive or reconcile with each other. we chose the path of reconciliation. i'm sorry it took the murder of nine people in a church to bring
7:36 am
about this moment but i'm very proud of my state and let's move forward. bill: what do you think it accomplishes, senator? >> i think it is a takes down a roadblock to the future of south carolina. people at ame church in charleston, heard your plea. we acknowledge that the symbol is divisive. tears us apart rather than brings us together. gives us a chance to move forward. a act of reconciliation in very meaningful way. bill: talk about a roadblock of very different sort now. we're learning that talks with iran extended monday of next week. why are we still there? >>, this thing is becoming a joke. we started with the goal of dismantling iranians who lie and cheat about the nuclear ambitions. if they comply with the agreement that is on the table now, we guarranty that iran will be nuclear power. we're about to give the state,
7:37 am
the largest state sponsor of terrorism a lot of money. this should be terrorism relief act. they will get 50 to $100 billion without changing behavior. this is going to do to almost mass, hezbollah and. -- hamas. this deal will guarranty iran will have nuclear program. how far we have come from the original purpose. bill: yesterday it appeared the would pay up and are you saying today they will figure out a way to finish this? >> you couldn't get him out with a crowbar. they all feel so bad they can't stand it. at end of the day we've gone from dismantling the program as international goal to locking in place a sophisticated enrichment program, infusing the largest state sponsor of terrorism with hundreds of billions of dollars to go war machine. to help aside hezbollah and hamas and the passage of 10
7:38 am
years they're free to do whatever they would like. this guaranties that iran will be a nuclear power and create a nuclear arms race in the middle east if they ink this deal. bill: i know you're on the trail in new hampshire. you told me on the commercial break you enjoy it. it is full contact sport, politics in new hampshire. >> yeah. bill: i know you're positive about the campaign. the polling would suggest you're not cracking the top 10, which means you would not be on the main stage for the fox debate on august 6th. >> right. bill: if that stays the way it is sir, will you participate in the forum until afternoon? >> i make my mind up about that. brad pitt will be in the debate in august. anybody with any celebrity would be in the debate. i think this is dumb way to weed out the field. i don't mind weeding out the field over time but a national poll test celebrity big states have an advantage versus small
7:39 am
states. people run before have advantage for those that haven't. it is july, for god sakes. a national poll is lousy ski way to determine who should be on name i quite frankly resent it. bill: you want to name some names there. >> yay, the rnc. bill: any others? >> fox news. bill: how would you resolve this, senator? >> i would find a way for everybody who has filed and got a viable campaign to be on the stage. after a couple of debates, you could start weeding people out. it is not about me. it is about destroying the early primary process of iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. under this construct, nobody really cares about coming to iowa, new hampshire and south carolina anymore. it is all about money which you will reward over time the people with the most money and destroying the early primary process. i think that is bad for the republican party. bill: back to the original question. if you're not in the top 10,
7:40 am
will you be in the forum that afternoon? >> i make a decision about that later. i will do my best to restore the early primary states. we're undercutting a process that works. at the end of the day you're rewarding money and celebrity over hard work and in early states. all 16 of us come to iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. and i think we should be looking at these early states to judge how well we are as candidates. bill: i will take that as maybe. senator, thank you. >> all right. bill: lindsey graham in new hampshire. 20 minutes before the hour. martha: more on that to come. stay tuned. so this story of murder of kate steinle in san francisco at the hands of an illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet continues to raise new questions about sanctuary cities in this country and why the federal government isn't enforcing its own immigration law. >> there is no question the uber liberals sanctuary city policy
7:41 am
of san francisco directly led to the murder of kate steinle. if the city leaders had any shame which they don't they would have resigned already. let's celebrate these moments... this woman... this cancer patient... christine... living her life... loving her family. moments made possible in part by the breakthrough science of advanced genomic testing. after christine exhausted the standard treatment options for her disease, doctors working with the center for advanced individual medicine at
7:42 am
cancer treatment centers of america suggested advanced genomic testing. the test results revealed a finding that led to the use of a targeted therapy that was not considered for christine before. now, they're helping fight her cancer on another, deeper level... the genetic level. this is precision cancer treatment an approach to care that may help patients like christine enjoy the things that matter most in their lives while undergoing treatment. the evolution of cancer care is here. that's definitely something worth celebrating. learn more about precision cancer treatment at appointments are available now.

7:44 am
sister can understand. mom, brian threw a ball in the house! bill: former nfl mvp ken stabler died. his family said he passed away peacefully due to complication from colon cancer. he led his team to super bowl victory in 1974. known as the snake for his wild playing style. john madden remembered him as perfect quarterback and perfect raider. kenny stabler was 69 years old. martha: last night bill o'reilly sounding off on the murder of a woman in san francisco, a sanctuary city. saying it is time that americans realize exactly why an illegal immigrant and felon was in that city in the first place. >> the alleged killer,
7:45 am
45-year-old juan francisco lopez sanchez a drug pusher and addict. a low level thug to managed to enter america illegally six times. that means anyone in the world can sneak into this country. that low-life illegally crossed our border from mexico six times? we don't have border enforcement. does everybody understand that? martha: strong statement last night. catherine times a reporter at "national review," fox news contributor and guest on "the greg gutfeld show" on sunday at 10:00 p.m. eastern. jessica ehrlich, former dem crassic congressional candidate. welcome to you. very strong words. we do not have border enforcement this country, jessica. this family, can you imagine if this young woman were part of your family, how outraged you would be that this man had been kicked out of this country five times. are we living in a country where we don't have any rules anymore? >> well i think part of the issue is that we are always going to have a bad element that
7:46 am
want to get in or out of the country whether on mexican border or even on the canadian border particularly a drug-related offense. martha: five times, the same person. >> once they find out how to do it. martha: they know where to go. >> right. so we need to make sure we are fully funding and getting -- martha: this is money issue? money issue? money and enforcement issue. martha: how much would it have cost to pick up the phone, i.c.e. let this goo out, pick him up? not run red cent. >> a lost bureaucracy. martha: come on. >> getting into the state of california first place. he didn't fly to san francisco. he had to work his way up. martha: is because we have no border enforcement. >> this needs to be bipartisan ahn issue. martha: let me bring catherine in here is that a money issue. >> this is money issue. sanctuary city which there are specific laws, we're not going to deal with immigration. we'll say, hey, go hide, go free. that is specific law clearly led
7:47 am
to this. not that they didn't have enough money to deal with it. that has nothing to do with money. sanctuary city specifically led him to go back and go back and go back. >> sanctuary city i think something their idea they want to make sure people who have not committed crimes but are here because they want to become tax paying -- martha: hold on, hold on. stick with the facts here. the sheriff said, we didn't have the right paperwork. so we had to let him go. do you believe that? or do you think that he said, you know what, we're not listening to i.c.e.? we don't answer to i.c.e. in san francisco. i mean that that is the long record that we have seen from the city. i guess i don't understand, i don't see why this would be a partisan issue. i think it should be quite clear that we have a country that is lacking rules that people feel they have to stand by. i also don't understand why the president isn't outraged about
7:48 am
this? where is the president talking about this young woman's death? we've seen him with freddie gray in the incident with michael brown. in charleston justifiably so. where is he, jessica, on this story? >> that i can't speak to. i think there is tremendous amount of outrage should be felt on both sides. i agree with you on a bipartisan issue. the concern should be that we are working together to make sure that we have the reform necessary so that we can stop these people. so that we are actually fully funding our law enforcement on the borders. making away -- problem becomes instead of getting trapped people already here. martha: i want to stick with the question, where is the reaction from the white house catherine. >> not politically convenient to talk about it, not just because border issue. this was a federal agents gun which suppose to the support hey, even gun control laws criminals get them and break the law. breaking the law is literal what
7:49 am
criminals do. so there are so many reasons why this is politically inconvenient we have president administration, has repeated record not talking about things politically inconvenient and jumping to talk about things that are. martha: we have to leave it there. ladies, thank you very much. good to have you both here today. bill: jon scott next on "happening now." what are you working on? >> good morning to you, mr. hemmer. the end of an era in south carolina as thees down. we'll get a live report. new numbers from jeb bush campaign he is a fund-raising dynamo. how the media is covering all the 2016 candidates. has the coverage been fair and balanced? should the head of the personnel office of personnel management step down as a number of those hacked now stands at more than 20 million? frightening numbers. we'll get into it.
