3:01 am
tracking it and will have the latest details coming up soon. >> donald trump firing up up a crowd. >> this country doesn't have victories anymore. they will see so many struck tries they may get tired of winning that much. >> plus who donald trump is saying is his biggest threat. you know what they say, morning is better with friends. >> they do say that ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ well, good morning. it's great to see you. this is going to be an ax-packed four hours. what does it take to become one of new york city's bravest? anna went to the fire academy to find out. that's coming up moments. >> we're going to be going into the flames. they have 10,000
3:02 am
firefighters, biggest one in the country. largest one in the world as well. they are super elite. they are putting me through the test and it is tough. >> you are elite. >> pete hegseth setting on the couch today and tomorrow by the way. if you like it today tune in tomorrow. >> great to be here. thanks for having me. >> are you kidding? >> a fox news alert,,ing overnight a suspected cop killer is in custody after allegedly gunning down a texas sheriff's deputy execution style while the deputy was filling up his patrol car with gas. >> so who turned the suspect in? turns out his mother. >> mr. fisher is live in d.c. with the details. kristen? >> good morning. this happened at a gas station just outside of houston. the deputy was in uniform. he was filling up his patrol car. he went inside the convenience store. when he he came out this gunman just walked up behind him and started shooting. the sheriff's office says it was totally unprovoked. once the deputy fell to the ground, this suspect continued firing.
3:03 am
47-year-old deputy darren goforth died almost instantly. he was a 10 year veteran of the harris county sheriff's department. >> it's horrifying. it's an act of cowardice and brutality the likes of which i havener seen. >> what you can imagine is a very difficult situation. we know that deputy goforth leaves behind a wife and two children. our hearts go out to them. >> the suspect fled the scene in a pickup truck but he was caught and taken into custody a little over an hour ago. get this, his mother apparently helped lead investigators to her son. of the big question now is motive. detectives are searching security camera footage for clues but so far they have very few leads. one possible lead is the fact that about 30 minutes before he was killed deputy goforth had had responded to a routine car accident he drove from there to that chevron station where the
3:04 am
shooting happened. looking to see if there is any possible connection but so far nothing. anna, pete, back to you. >> learn more about this suspect about his identity and if he in fact did this. this is really part of a larger trend here. this is not the first police officer to be executed in the line of duty in recent months it does seem to be accelerating. we have seen this happen in other times in american history. >> remember when it happened to the two new york city police officers when they were gunned down in a car? so awful. you say there is not a war on police. here is even more evidence this morning. >> absolutely. it's a national sentiment it feels like. if you are a police officer right now, doing your job. you watch the heated rhetoric. overheated rhetoric time and time again, you walk out on your job much like recruiters in those offices saying hey, we have a war on islamist. i can't defend myself. >> exactly right. we should be clear this
3:05 am
crime was committed by saying gel man. we shouldn't blame others for something that he did. on the other hand, crime has been politicized under this administration. when you politicize crime, you are basically i justifying it and it increases. that's one of the reasons you have seen a rise in our violent crime rate in cities across america. it's ominous. >> this sheriff's deputy leaves behind a wife and children. that sheriff harris county is asking for thoughts and prayers for that family and the department. let's listen to this. >> in what appears to be an unprovoked, execution style killing of a police officer strikes us all at the heart of public service. we will hunt this person down and do our best to bring that person to justice. clearly the deputy was the target. so, i would think the general public at large would take normal precautions.
3:06 am
it strikes us in the heart to simply be a target because you wear a badge and for no other reason hits you where you live. >> again, the suspect has been apprehended and his mother was the one who turned him in. you know, at these police funerals though which we will see always a sign of solidarity and support, officers across the country will come and support. i he hope there are blue lives matter supporter there's as well. >> all lives matter. i don't care if it's unfashionable to say this but it's true. >> what does this say it's a result of too, violent video games and movies. movie straight out of compton out big song from f the police. >> a sign of something else going on. >> we'll bring you details as we get. they to extreme weather. tropical storm heather destructive path continues as it's barreling towards the united states. at least 20 people were
3:07 am
killed in the small island of domenica. the damage set to country back some 2 oyears. >> rick scott not taking any chances already declaring a state of emergency. water and supplies flying off local shelves as people deal for the worse. >> how dangerous is this storm. >> he i think he declares that state of emergency so it can free up funds and get the state ready for funds. it make things look better for a lot of florida. it's right there between cuba and haiti. most of the action off to the east of it around haiti. still bringing some very strong rain there. all the tracks had had this going to the north side of this. instead of to the south side or staying on the south side of cuba, possibly. so this is kind of changing pictures. it's moving all the tracks a little bit farther off toward the west. puerto rico, showing. we don't have dominican republic and haiti. here are the models. most of them staying to the
3:08 am
south side of cuba at this point or cutting across cuba. again, how much land interaction it has is going to completely determine what happens to the storm. the models is taking it looks like to the west side of florida and that's the official track. at this point intensity guidelines, guess, only showing it around the 40 mile-per-hour storm. good news. lots of rain over parts of florida the next few days, as far as that strong wind event i don't think we are looking at that and that is good news. >> that is good news. thank you. >> you bet. >> the trump train rolls on. choo choo. there will be so many struck tries, people will be tired of winning that much. trump said that and, oh, so much more. good morning, america. here's donald trump. >> this country doesn't have victories anymore. and they are going to see some victories, they may get tired of winning that much. i don't know. it's possible they will get tired of winning that much. you are going to see so many victories if i'm elected president. jeb bush is a frequent
3:09 am
target because when this whole thing started i thought he was going to be the primary competition. he has drifted very much to the middle of the pack and he is rapidly disappearing. >> you can imagine you ask eric cantor to endorse. >> you i don't see any protesters, i see thousands of people. and there are only a few protesters. i figured you would ask that question. cnn is terrible. are you with cnn? you people do not cover us accurately. >> wow. [ laughter ] >> the next debate with cnn, because of the huge ratings that we h of course, donald trump said it was all because of me. 24 million viewers you had was all because of me. i was just reading that article in "time." you know, he is on the cover of it right now. and he was saying that he wants to get $10 million. millions of dollars and he would donate it to charity because of the commercial revenues that they are going to bring in. >> i read the same article. if i'm bringing in the audience why don't i bring in a share of the thing.
3:10 am
i will hold out. >> you were saying, this tucker, i don't want this show to end either. >> by product how this is good. all the conservatives were l. coalesce behind him a two man race. at this stage i think he has really hurt some of these guys. why is bush bragging about eric cantor endorsement. i'm not taking sides about this. that's a pretty devastating thing to say. i don't think this has been good for some of the other candidates as well. >> incredibly poignant the old rules don't matter the way they did. >> no, they don't. >> eric cantor policy guy. matters to have him in your camp. eric cantor, he lost. what are you trying to do? he not only lost he lost to a guy you never heard of before dave brat he was the most powerful guy in the house of representatives. i don't know. >> maybe it's actually doing something good too though if the trump wave does crash ultimately who is going to fill the void people are
3:11 am
asking. what about this is showing we need a different formula for a politician that isn't so scripted and there aren't so many people saying you should wear this red tie and you should do this and that and just be yourself. >> pole tested lapel pin. right? people are sick of that. they are looking for somebody that is real. >> pretty good. >> we do need to get to headlines. something went horribly wrong. a stunt pilot is dead after his plane plummets to the ground and crashes into some woods. witnesses snapping these pictures showing the tail breaking off moments before the single engine propeller plane takes a steep dive into a line of trees. officials say the pilot was practicing tricks for this weekend's air show in new york, hudson valley. the cause is under investigation. the woman who survived the on air shutting that killed two virginia journalists says she never saw the gunman approaching because the cam wraps bright lights blinded her. vicki gardner was shot in the black. vester flanagan shot co-workers alison parker and
3:12 am
adam ward in the head. he fired 17 shots before fleeing, eventually killing himself. evidence found inside flanagan's apartment suggests he identified with mass murderers, including the september 11th terrorists. one of the american heros who helped thwart the terror attack on a french train now giving us a firsthand account of his experience. alec skarlatos spoke to greta van susteren about what was going through his mind. >> when he came in, i knew we had to do something. spencer was on the aisle seat. i was on the window seat i just said let's go. his handgun was only able to fire the one round. the magazine dropped out of it his ak, i'm pretty sure he just had it on safe or wasn't able to get it functioning in the first place. i'm sure we just got lucky. any one of those things went different we all would have died. >> skarlatos said the three others were awarded france's huest medal of honor. be sure to catch the "on the
3:13 am
record" special terror on the tracks. replaying tomorrow at 9:00 in the evening. those are your news headlines. >> thanks, anna. that's not a spare tire, found inside the trunk of a car. why the immigration problem is getting worse and what can be done to fix it. >> plus, getting up close and personal with a grizzly bear. it's all caught on camera. you will want to see this. >> and as we go to break, we want to give you a look at the sunrise over the new york city skyline. it happens here too. it's gone. good morning. ♪ over me ♪ then you bel where great gear, great prices and the great outdoors all meet up.

3:15 am
boy: once upon a time,
3:16 am
there was a nice house that lived with a family. one day, it started to rain and rain. water got inside and ruined everybody's everythings. the house thought she let the family down. but the family just didn't think a flood could ever happen. the reality is, floods do happen. protect what matters. get flood insurance. call the number on your screen to learn more. [ male announcer ] he doesn't need your help. until he does. three cylinders, 50 horsepower. go bold. go powerful. go gator. welcome back. secure the border. just build a wall. that's what a lot of the candidates are saying about immigration. but just this past month, we have seen illegals hiddens in trunks, scaling the wall
3:17 am
at the border like it's a playground. then a massive underwater tunnel along with an illegal in a scuba suit. wow, can you secure the border? if so, how? here to react is retired dhs and border patrol agent david ward who knows a thing or two about this. >> thanks, tucker. >> it striewx me no matter what you do at the border as long as you have this massive welfare state giving generous benefits to people who arrive illegally, you are going to have a pretty big magnet, incentive for people to come here, no? >> yes. people take any method to exploit the united states, our national security, our borders. and what needs to be addressed is interior enforcement. we need to take away the magnet that draws the illegal aliens here to the country. first off, we need to go after the jobs. and until we go and assess that situation and remove that enticement of illegal aliens coming to the yachts for jobs, that will be one item we can address.
3:18 am
the second one is sanctuary cities, in which cities around the country have adopted this defiant posture against federal immigration law. and that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. >> well, sure. i mean you have seen all kinds of instances where cities defied -- i mean, you saw this in little rock in 19 a 6 where the cities defied federal law and the cities did something about it this is not happening under this administration. do people coming here know that there are sanctuary cities and know they will be treated leniently if they make it to chicago or san francisco? >> absolutely. in fact, during the interview process when border patrol agents do and ice agents do arrest illegal all yens, one of the questions asked where they were going. and most of them will say specific cities like chicago, denver, san francisco, because of the lax immigration law. and that is the tremendous problem when we have have issues like a couple months
3:19 am
ago that happened in san francisco when kate steinle was murdered by an illegal alien who had been deported before. >> so bottom line, david, if your job is to enforce um congratulation law and you are a front line guy, you are are a border patrol agent, how frustrating is it to know that the politicians you work for don't really want you to enforce those laws? >> it's very frustrating. dysfunctional laws in the united states. it seems like every 10 years we come up with a new immigration law or a set of laws that aren't enenforced after they are implemented. we are talking again about immigration radio form. the same thing is going to happen like it did in 1996 and in 1986, where we had two major um congratulation law changes. amnesty that is a tough job. thank you for joining us this morning. >> you are welcome. >> four years after the sudden death of berlin celebrity polar bear newt.

hi everyone and good morning to fox news alert. breaking overnight. a terrorist suspect under arrest. thai police say they have the man responsible for the deadly bombing that ripped through a shrine weeks ago. the young man matching the suspect's description, his

3:25 am
pictures this bear was on the cover of vanity fair. very interesting. for the fours years we had no idea. all the scientists looked at all the specimens, this was a sudden death. usually go on for 2 o. 0 years. this was a big surprise. finally what they're coming up with is some sort of inflammation in the brain was actually the cause of the death. a lot of times it happens in medicine when we don't know what the etiology is unknown encephalitis. autoimmune attack to the brain was the reason for. this why is this interesting? we are also finding this in human in the last 8 to 10 years cases in human beings that has actually killed some men and women out there. >> i don't want to blame the victim out here is there something about his lifestyle that gave him the disease? >> nothing that we know of. i know you have some personal issue with poll bears or whatever it is. nothing that was in the
3:26 am
history. bottom line is this particular disease that we are talking about, which is an attack of the body on the brain which is called autoimmune encephalitis is very rare. 1 in 200,000 in men and women and we see in humans. we can learn from this. >> because it can be detected with a simple procedure all the people need is cortisone and they can pretty much live a normal life. >> exactly. a lot of causes of this inflammation could be back material. could be viral. you can give the anti-bites anti-bottom -- antibiotics. >> he i did the back of the envelope math, 1600 people in america. it is a very rare. >> extremely rare. >> if it happened in 2011 and we are finding out now medically. how did it take four years? are they still looking at the polar bear four years later? >> what happened was some genius went back and looked at all the cfs fluid, the
3:27 am
fluid around the spine and they found a very specific antibody against that receptor called mmda which nobody looked, you know, bothered to look at it because it wasn't as important. so they went back four years later and say, wait a second, i have the same type of patients in my practice which is so rare, let's go back and find out what those smesms look like, and, guess what? that's exactly what killed this bear. >> can we catch this from polar bears? >> no. you can't. >> we have other things to worry about with polar bears. they do eat people. >> you are safe. somewhere a graduate student was doing research on a polar bear four years after the death. >> it's a long autopsy. >> she told the police she was kidnapped but now the teenager is the one facing criminal charges. the new twist in the already bizarre case just ahead. >> and do you know a mother like this? >> is there alcohol in this? oh god, honey, no. what kind of mother do you think i am? why do you want a little
3:28 am
bit? because if you are going to drink, i would rather you do it in the house. >> no, thank you. >> the types of mom you want to avoid like the plague? ♪ now rumor has it ♪ more "stay" per roll.

before i had the shooting, burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain, these feet grew up in a family of boys... married my high school sweetheart... and pursued a degree in education. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and she prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda-approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new, or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and i love helping first graders put their best foot forward. ask your doctor about lyrica.

overloaded barge tips into a harbor in british columbia. 20 cars fell off the recycling company ship and plunged into the water. luckily they had been cleaned of fuel first so it's not environmental disaster. working to get it back up on to dry land and the crushing machine. anna? >> all right, tucker, thanks. no secret on any given campus, liberal staff and students far outweigh the conservatives. a new report by "the washington times" may be providing a better explanation of why. >> yeah. liberal billionaires like george soros and tom styer donate big bucks to places like mit and stanford all in hopes of pushing their ideological agenda. >> ashley pratt, the vice president of communications for sp 1 strategies is here to break it all down for us. good morning, ashley. thanks for being with us. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> are they buying influence to push their liberal agendas? >> they certainly are. if you look at some of these places. even michael bloomberg last year came out and said this is what is going on on college campuses. i think we should take
3:44 am
lessons from him here. tom styer, for example, has given tons of money to democratic initiatives. i think he spent over $74 million back in 2014 alone and 2012. so that shows you right there, just where this money is going to buy some influence. and it's no secret that the ideological milwaukeeup of campuses is pretty much a hot bed of liberalism. actually, i have got to ask though, if it isn't already a hot bed of liberalism, why do they feel the need to fund millions and upon millions and upon millions more. is it not liberal enough? why such direct grants from leftists on these universities? >> it's about recruiting that next generation. that's exactly what they are trying to do with each class that comes in there and i think at this point we are starting to see a lot of that. and they don't want to see their influence slip and wane. it's all about not having a diversity or debate of ideas. so when you see conservatives come on the campus, that's what they are looking for. and it's at the point now where i think this liberal

money that's coming there is only going to end up hurting people in the long run because at one point there needs to be that diversity of ideas they keep saying we need diversity on campus it's so pc you can't have conversations anymore. if you are on the right, you are intolerant and if you are donating to, you know, let's say any republican initiatives it becomes an issue. >> the left claims that they are the open-minded ones yet try to silence anybody who disagrees with them. >> that's exactly it. >> let's take a look at some of these numbers because they are astounding. george soros, $26.4 million to universities and campuses alone. 675,000 to mit center for civic media $200,000 to nyu for research on racial ethnic and economic segregation. >> let's look at another 111.3 billion. let's go to tom styer another environmental activist he wants to give 40 million to stanford to center on energy. 200 to harvard. michael bloomberg a gun control advocate gave over

3:47 am
institutions exist. >> right. >> it's very hard to find. >> bought line, parents are spending a lot of money on their children's college education. what should conservative parents with conservative college students do to make sure their voices are heard as well? >> i think it's important for them to get out there and to say something. and for students to talk action on their campuses. if you feel as though you are not getting a balance in the classroom, it's time to do something. don't just sit there and question your professors, question the ideology on campus. it's okay to debate ideas. it's okay to be different. it's okay to have a diversity of thought, which is what colleges and academia are supposed to be. it's not supposed to be avertly sway to one i had so. i think it's become so one sided on these campuses that you hear stories every dave that are just aso astounding. you know, you can't say the pledge in the classroom. it's racist to say something. and i you think at this point, you know, having a healthy discussion about free market principles, come on, these fair. >> the koch brothers are saying it's okay to read adam smith. it's okay --

well, it's the most disturbing story you will probably hear all day. new video he from inside the memphis v.a. shows hospital workers leaving paralyzed veterans abandoned sometimes for hours at a time. >> this happens every day. no one is here to us. if something happened, we are screwed. front desk area, no one attending at all. >> joining us now with his reaction is the executive deputy director of paralyzed veterans. himself a former marine as well. sherman guilliams jr. thank you for joining us. >> good morning, pete. good to see you again. >> thank you. >> you spend your life advocating on behalf of paralyzed veterans. why does something like this happen? >> it speaks to a few concerns. number one, the reality is paralyzed veterans are living longer are. and when that -- with that comes the opportunity for v.a. to examine whether it needs to right size the way it staffs these hospitals, the way it staffs the spinal cord injury centers.
4:18 am
in this case we are looking at one example of where a veteran with needs, needed to have someone at the bedside a little bit more frequently than at times past. this happens at spinal cord injury centers across the country. trying to determine how we in fact need to right size the staffing at the v.a. americans. >> you mentioned the v.a. a couple of times. we asked the v.a. for a statement. they provided one. they said in response to this oftentimes when staff are working at the bedside with patients, it might appear that no one is at the nurse's station. the assistive call button is at the bedside for patient to alert staff if there is need for assistance. do you think, sherman, is this a memphis thing or v.a. system thing? there has been a lot of criticism of both this facility but also v.a. health care generally. which is it in this case? >> well, i think it's worth mentioning that this video was shot in july. since that time, we did advocate for the memphis leadership to make
4:19 am
adjustments and they did send in a new team of clinics to take a look at this problem. it's been in the works and getting resolved. but it is symptomatic of something that's been probably happening in v.a. far too long. and that's understaffing. and we heard deputy secretary sloan talk about managing to a budget instead of the requirement. i think at this point they are just now understanding that you have to manage to what's needed. take look at demand and determine what's needed and memphis, because it got this attention, i hope it will speak to the bigger, bigger solution. >> sherman, the video itself speaks for itself, obviously the need to take it, these veterans felt like they weren't being treated the way that they should. do you know if anyone has been held accountable here in memphis? do you think someone should be held accountable? we have heard about the difficulties of holding anybody accountable? can anybody be held
4:20 am
accountable for this? >> one of the things we need to keep in mind the v.a. is. most of them are doing the right thing. when you have these pockets of problems that are happening and they get this kind of attention, it is important to demonstrate accountability. i think that secretary robert mcdonald is doing that. he is he looking at thing from a veterans perspective. in this case the spinal cord injury chief was held accountable. >> held accountable in what sense? just real quick. >> right there. was an interim spinal cord chief that was relieved of duty. and there was a new interim chief brought in who has more experience and taking a look at the problem and developing solutions to function it. >> you got it sherman, thanks very much for joining us and what you do for veterans. >> you got it. >> do not mess with one pastor. wait until you hear how he stopped a man from robbing his church. and a dad gives a little boy a gust he really didn't want to teach him some manners. >> an avocados.

4:45 am
i'm so tired of having to explain to young people what capitalism is, how basic economics works. how wages work. you shouldn't be asking government to raise minimum wage. you should be asking them to abolish it and get rid of it. people that understand basic economics knows that. quit feeling like you are entitled to everybody he else's wealth get a skill. everybody has a craft. if you don't, learn one. read and economics book. >> joining us now is a man who made that democrat turned libertarian his name is eric july. he joins us live. good to he so you. >> hey, good to see you as well. thanks for having me. >> you make a point that seems counter intuitive. unpack it a little bit for us now. you say it looks like the middle wage helps you if you are a low income worker but it doesn't at all. how is that? >> you just basically when you are raising minimum wage anybody that understands the basics understands that you are basically raising the ceiling for a low he income or low skilled rather workers. i explained in the video
4:46 am
using the analogy basically if you have say before minimum wage you had two jobs which were filled by two people low skilled. you raise it, say if you double it, it can now easily be filled by somebody who has -- can equally do both of those people's jobs. or you might get replaced by a machine. and, again, you don't have the skill. you are not an it person. you don't have the skill to work on a machine or fix it if they do gown or people like that. >> people have economic views but they don't typically make videos about them. why did you decide to do this. >> i noticed a lot of young people, my age and younger they talk about the minimum wage debate or economics in general and they approach it from an emotional level rather than a factual or logical level rather. so i see a lot of people whether it be scrolling on facebook things like that, everybody is talking about the minimum wage debate and everybody is speaking about it from an emotional standpoint rather than economic standpoint. so i am very fiery about economics, so i wanted to
4:47 am
make sure i kind of touched on that. i made a video just break it down really for anybody to understand. >> interesting. so you say you were a democrat. you are now trending libertarian. you are obviously following the presidential race so far. who do you like? >> right now i haven't really endorsed anybody. obviously with the field as it is now, it's no -- you know, i'm going to support rand paul probably over anybody else mainly because i feel like the president is going to do the least is going to do the most. >> what's the reaction when you say things like that people you live near, friends, family? what do they say to you? >> well, it kind of throws them off. understand that i grew up liberal, campaigned for barack obama in 2008. so it throws people off definitely obviously me being an african-american. and not supporting the democratic party. it does throw people off. but, once i became more knowledgeable on subjects like economics, started to think critically thinking for myself and because now i think for myself, i have no reason to support that party and i honestly think they
4:48 am
are doing more damage than they are helping, actually like the african-american. >> very quickly we are almost out of time unfortunately. you have say you campaigned for barack obama do you think he has done much for you. >> oh, no. absolutely not. he has done nothing for me and i don't think he has done a lot forever african-americans. we continue to put folks like him in office in a lot of cases. they run our cities into the ground. and we don't hold them accountable for it. >> eric july. holding him accountable. good to he see you. >> thank you. appreciate it. >> well, he is a terrorist suspect on the no fly list. boy is he. wait until you hear his record. somehow you got his commercial trucking license. does he pose a threat to the u.s.? how does this happening? what is going on? we have the frightening details up ahead. plus, did you just move your kids into college? are are their dorm rooms depressing? we have five tips to transform them into a place you might actually want to live. dorm room transformation coming up. ♪ tonight, tonight ♪ there's a party on the roof top

friends. ♪ ♪ >> good morning from new york city. we want to begin with a fox news alert. breaking just overnight. a suspected cop killer reportedly i is in custody this morning after he allegedly gunned down a sheriff's deputy execution style at a gas station just outside houston. >> the suspect walking up behind 47-year-old sheriff's deputy darren goforth and shooting him point blank. the suspect fled the scene in a pickup truck. according to fox affiliate in houston, texas, he was caught just a few hours ago. they say his mother is the one who possibly helped turn him in to police. the suspect has not yet been identified. >> well, the big question now is motive. detectives are searching security cameras and footage for clues. they are seeing if there is any connection to a car accident that deputy go domestic violence forth had responded to moments before. >> he had finished investigating an accident about 30 minutes before. so at this point we don't
5:02 am
know any connection between that event and the incident here. >> trying to connect a lot of dots. deputy goforth was a 10-year veteran of the harris county sheriff's department. he leaves behind a wife and two children. we're now joined by former d.c. detective rod wheeler who joins us over the phone. rod, thanks a lot for joining us. >> good morning, guys. >> well, rod, tell us -- you know, this is obviously an incredibly tragic situation. but it also, we have heard about a lot of these killings of those wearing the badge. what does this tell us about some of the threats our law enforcement are under in this country now? >> can i can tell that you law enforcement all across the country are under a severe attack. now, there has been -- i don't know if you know this, there has been about 22 shootings of police officers this year alone here in the united states. and what we saw happen last night down there in harris county was noting abouting a cold-blooded, call also a ambush against an innocent police officer who had done nothing wrong. this officer had just left the scene of an accident. so that was very innocuous
5:03 am
thing. they had nothing to do with this guy and this guy decides to walk up. i was just talking with some fellow police officers here in this morning here in cleveland where i'm at. me you know, rod, each and every day we go out there it's a lot different from how it used to be. we are always on alert. we just don't know if somebody is going to walk up to us, open fire on us and just try to kill us. >> those runs, rod, have got to effect the way that police do their job. >> it does. it really does. because what happens is we develop a mind set. we, meaning police, we develop a mind set that we are so worried about protecting our ownselves, sometimes, we still continue to do our jobs. but each and every call that you go on -- do you know what's going through your mind? is this going to be the call where we are going to be ambushed? we see this happening all across the country. it's really becoming a major, major problem. do you know what we don't see? we don't see it slowing down. we don't see it stopping any time soon. >> this suspect apparently leaving in a pickup truck
5:04 am
and intense manhunt that went on for hours. these police officers are are looking at this chopper video. you know, they are out there in the dark in the middle of the night. and they are already have had one of their comrades go down in the worst possible way. you can only imagine the fear that they were dealing with. this is the harris county chevron hickman talking about being targeted because of wearing a uniform. listen. >> in what appears to be an unprovoked execution-style killing of a police officer strikes us all at the heart of public service. clearly the deputy was the target. i would think the general public at large would take normal precautions. it strikes us in the heart to simply be a target because you wear a badge and for no other reason hits you where you live. >> there is a lot of rhetoric out there that police are the bad ones and
5:05 am
it's unfortunate when we are seeing incidents like this. is this proof there is a war on police. >> police officers have a badge on their chest and a target on their back. we know that and it's becoming increasingly, increasingly -- it's happening more and more and more. so what do we do? we continue to go out there. this officer last night as you just reported of was doing nothing but pumping gas in his car. we see this happening in baltimore. we see this happening in ferguson. everywhere we go. so it's really turning into a major problem. >> rod wheeler joining us this morning. we appreciate your insight. >> glad that suspect has been apprehended. on to extreme weather. tropical storm erika barreling toward the united states. 20 people killed on a small island of domenica. the damage said to set the island back 200 years. >> not waiting declaring a state of emergency there.
5:06 am
water and supplies flying off the shelves as people unbelievably so prepared for the worst. how worried should would he be? rick reichmuth tracking. rick? >> if you have been watching if these mountains tear the storm apart and if it doesn't survive, then it will be a weakening trend. there is hurricane hunter aircraft in there right now. the latest advisory comes out and they think it has dissipated or is dissipating. due to that interaction. so if you go to the maps here and take a look, this looks like a lot more. this is thunderstorm activity that is far outside the center. and they just moved the center of this storm here now to the north side of cuba. it was right here. it's just kind of this elongated, large circulation, not a very tight circulation like you are used to seeing with some tropical systems. the center of this suspect here. likely just dissipating as it will, still, that energy will pull off towards the northwest over very warm waters. but if at the lower level, at the surface, there isn't a circulation, then you don't get that continued strengthening.
5:07 am
it would take a lot of time over here in order for that to happen. so, some big changes here. hopefully we are seeing this dissipating completely. we will still see the moisture move in, but we won't see any kind of a tropical storm at the 11:00 advisory all of this stuff will get changed. and we will see if they even expect it to get back to a tropical storm status. so big changes right now at 11:00 we will see what the national hurricane center does. this is good news for florida. municipal court still coming but likely a much weaker, weaker storm. >> the season has begun. rick. appreciate it the trump train pulled into a station in massachusetts last night. the candidate fired up the crowd by taking shots at his opponents. and at cnn. watch this. >> this country doesn't have victories anymore. and they are going to see so many victories. they may get tired of winning that much. tired of winning that much. you are going to see so many victories if i'm elected president. >> jeb bush is a frequent target because when this
5:08 am
whole thing started i thought he was going to be the primary competition. but he has drift very much to the middle of the pack. and he is rapidly disappearing. can you imagine you ask eric cantor to endorse you. well, i don't see many protesters, i see thousands of people and there are a few protesters. i figured you would ask that he request. because, you know, that's the way it is. cnn is terrible. cnn. you are with cnn? are you with cnn? are you -- you people do not cover us accurately. >> are you with cnn? you people don't cover us accurate i will. one of the next debates is with cnn. i was just reading an article in "time" the one where he is on the cover right now. he was talking about, you know, fox news channel had 24 million viewers. and he believes that he was the big culprit in that, the one that brought in all those numbers. cnn is going to be making a lot of money off that maybe i should too. i can't take the money so i will give it to charity. that's what he is thinking about asking, apparently. >> it's the art of the deal. the seconds most popular book after the bible. >> tucker, wouldn't you get
5:09 am
tired of winning? >> i don't know if you can get tired of winning. if christmas every day would you get sick of it? i have got to say i have no idea where this trump campaign wandz up. i don't think anybody does. he is doing some damage though. he is hurting some of the other people in this race. his line, you can imagine being excited about an eric cantor endorsement? oh, that stipulation. >> up -- that stings. folks resaid isially, in the establishment wanted connected. why? what? he lost. we want to win. >> votes in the republican primary, i have no idea. this is really hard on the other people running. >> he is just shaking it all up because he is saying he can't be bought and sold like other politicians. he is also being himself with people which people are really liking. that's resonating. is he doing things differently rather than having somebody say where this tie, where that tie, say, this say that he is doing what he wants. >> it's a shot in the arm to people who are sick and tired of politicians. they are like hey, somebody,
5:10 am
tell it like it is. he is energized. >> he is a flame flower. >> unbelievable. >> other stories making headlines on your saturday morning now. a stunt pilot is dead after his plane plummets to the ground and crashes in the woods. witnesses snapping these photographs showing the tail breaking off moments before the single engine propeller plane take as steep dive into a trees. the pilot was practicing tricks for this weekend's air show in hudson valley. the cause is under investigation. we are learning about brand new details about the man accused of killing two television journalists live on tv. evidence found inside vester flanagan's apartment suggests he identified with mass murderers, including the september 11th terrorist. roanoke police now saying they have had two run-ins with flanagan since he was fired from wdbj. one was while being checked the second was when flanagan reported an unauthorized atm transaction. it has been 10 years since hurricane devastated gulf

5:17 am
that he was training to get his commercial drivers license. we first noticed a little placard around him. traced him to a local trucking school. learned he was getting that license and assumed at some point the fbi would intervene and stop him from doing that well, in fact, the fbi served a subpoena on this trucking school the day after our story. no one intervened. would he discovered three weeks ago got this commercial drivers license to drive 18 wheelers. is he trying to get a separate endorsement that would allow him to drive school buses. we asked our department of public safety this guy can't get a plane ticket why are you allowing him to drive 18 wheelers? they told us there is nothing that they can see in federal or state law that would prevent them from granting him this class a commercial drivers license. he passed a criminal background check. he has a clean record. the fbi wouldn't comment for us. we reached out to his attorney with the aclu. he has a couple lawsuits going with the aclu to get off othe no fly list. his attorney said hey listen amir has a clean criminal

record. he is just trying to get a job. is he trying to support his family, including a young baby. when we did this story originally about amir trying to get this license in may, he gave us a statement, amir which he said he would never take an innocent life. of course that begs the question that what is an innocent life in his opinion. >> exactly. >> tucker are, this is the thing, according to letters we have from homeland security, they see him as a terror threat. who, and this is a quote has the operational capacity to carry out a terror attack. that is pretty chilling stuff. and this is the guy that he was just allowed to drive 18 wheelers. >> i would say i'm old enough to remember when minnesota didn't have problems like this before our immigration policy got in the way. it's worth reminding our viewers, i think, of the damage that a massive big truck like this can do. >> yeah. tucker, it's important to point out though, this guy is a u.s. citizen. he was born in this country. is of egyptian dissent. he actually came to minnesota from new jersey because he has family connections here. >> yeah, just for our viewers who are just

hi friends, good morning, it's a fox news alert. tragedy in texas. a sheriff's deputy is gunned down, execution style, while pumping gas in his patrol car. >> and this morning the suspect is believed to be in custody. >> there is a lot going on in this story. fox 26 reporter john donley is live in harris county, texas where this all happened. john, what do you know? >> >> we still have very much an active scene behind me the sheriff deputies have surrounded this house. we believe that is the suspect's house. that is the suspect's vehicle. this all started to unfold around 8:30 last night local time. a deputy named darron goforth 477 years old. a husband and father. he had just finished investigating a traffic accident and filling up his patrol car when the suspect approached him from behind, apparently without provocation and simply opened fire. the deputy fell to the ground. the suspect stood over him. firing repeatedly into his body. we spoke to the harris county district attorney. and she says this was absolutely an assassination.
5:24 am
>> it's horrifying. it's an act of cowardice and peru tattle. the likes of which i have never seen before. >> now, what we understand is the suspect's mother actually turned him in. this is the suspect's mother's house from what we understand. we are trying to find out more information about the suspect. and more importantly, about his motive. guys, back to you. >> thanks a lot, john. appreciate it we will bring you more as we learn it. there is a lot going on in this story and details will be coming in all morning. now, it was a father and son camping trip in the wiles of idaho. a lot changed instantly. watch. >> if boulder had landed on me, i would be dead for sure. i jumped and it hit me in the air, crushed my arm. >> well a boulder the size of a refrigerator broke loose and hit that dad, sending him falling down a mountain. he broke his back and his arm? he is alive today thanks to his quick think thinking boy
5:25 am
scout son. he joins us this morning. that 13-year-old charlie charlie finlason. thank you for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. >> you are 13 years old, out on the trail with your father. this massive boulder comes down and knocks him down and there you are. what are you thinking at that moment. >> i was definitely scared at first. i knew if i didn't stay calm then it could get a lot worse than it was. >> well were you worried? this boulder comes down. you fortunately dodge it your father unfortunately doesn't. then he tumbles down 20 to 30 feet and you run down there to his side. what are you thinking? >> well, at first i was just really scared, but then i kind of just assessed the situation and i asked him if he knew what his wounds were, and i was just asking him some questions to make
5:26 am
sure wasn't in shock and stuff. and he was knocked out at first for the first few seconds and then but then he woke up and he was just in a lot of pain, and i got him the backpack and there was first aid kit inside. and he wrapped up his leg and his ankle and his arm. >> boy, it's a lot easier to talk about staying calm than it is to pull it off. people die in the woods all the time because they lose control of themselves. how did you keep yourself calm and what did you do for your dad over those two days? >> well, at first i was definitely freaking out but i just -- mostly the way i kept calm was i just thought about what would happen if i didn't keep calm and how that would make the situation a lot worse. >> i hear you prayed a lot as well. ultimately, your dad thought, all right, it might be a while until we see anybody. we are off the trail head right now. so he made a note for you to
5:27 am
take and try to find help. tell us how that unfolded. >> so, there is a note that he wrote and it has like what he -- like what he wanted to say to the people that i came across on the trail. give him information where he was and what -- like if he needed rescue and stuff like that. >> charlie, i know what folks are thinking because i'm thinking it what a brave 13-year-old dude right here on the trail. you are a boy scout. did your boy scout training kick in when you are on that trail? when it happened and you are walking back to find help, was it the training that you fell back on? >> definitely. i have two great scout leaders brother brezio and brother hollisster. they are really good scout leaders and they teach us that a lot. >> it's so impressive.
5:28 am
every father watching this would be proud of a boy like you, charlie. good job. thank you, charlie. >> two rivals meet once again on the campaign trail. >> can you name one other cabinet secretary that buys their own server. >> let me answer one of your questions because i think that's what you are entitled to. >> you are entitled to one question ed henry. that's hillary clinton meeting up with our own ed henry. which question did she answer? we have it for you in a minute. >> make your own backyard barbecue games without breaking the bank. we will show you how. that's a slip and slide. very simple. ♪ ♪

hey friends it's your shot of the morning up close and personal with a grizzly bear. >> the bear cautiously approaches the camera set up in alaska. he looks at the camera for a few seconds and decides he doesn't like it. crushing it with one massive swipe of his paw. the man who set up the camera was not hurt some encounter pretty amazing. >> i guess he set up the camera on his own. >> he probably had a little distance. >> in a different county probably. >> other headlines we want to tell you about on your are saturday morning now. danger lurking on two michigan highways. police warning drivers this morning of a possible sniper shooting at cars on the interstate. the first report was on
5:33 am
august the 19th. that led police to uncover several other similar incidents happening along i- 4 and i-69 since late july. luckily no one has been hurt. police say if you think you have been shot at, don't stop, drive to a safe place and call 911. can you believe they are even having to tell everyone this? a bizarre twist in the case of a south carolina teenager who was missing for a week. she has now been charged with filing a false police report. marley mckenna spend ler's car was pulled over in the charleston's area wednesday. she told investigators someone had kidnapped and assaulted her. last week photographs of her getting money from a bank shortly after she sent a crypt particular text message about being follow and she didn't show up for the first day of school. >> cracking under pressure. watch what happens when our very own ed henry again asks hillary clinton the tough questions. >> were you aware that your husband wanted to give paid speeches to repressive regimes like north north korea. do you have any comment on
5:34 am
these about conflict of interests. and finally i wonder you said there is nothing unique about this situation. you said that before. can you name one other cabinet secretary that buys their own server? >> let me answer one of your questions because i he think that's what you are entitled to. >> just one. the democratic presidential hopeful snapping back only answering the first question. last week, clinton and ed henry, if you will remember, went back and forth for nearly five minutes over her private email server. >> you mean wipe it with like a cloth or something? and have you ever met a mom who acts like this? >> is there alcohol in this? >> oh god, honey, no. what kind of mother do you think i am? why do you want a little bit? because if you are going to drink, i would rather you do it in the house. >> no thank you. >> look out. one of the seven moms to avoid on the first day of school. mommy blogger lady go go gaga posted what each of them can do that can annoy you. some examples, the perfect

you tuck here... you tuck there. if you're a toe tucker... because of toenail fungus, ask your doctor now about prescription kerydin. used daily, kerydin drops may kill the fungus at the site of infection and get to the root of your toe tucking. kerydin may cause irritation at the treated site. most common side effects include skin peeling... ...ingrown toenail, redness, itching, and swelling. tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you
5:45 am
or does not go away. stop toe tucking... and get the drop on toenail fungus. ask your doctor today about kerydin. welcome back. we have quick headlines for you. back to school edition. first up a teacher in knowledge was late -- in knowledge was late for work 100 times. he said he he had a bad habit of losing track of time. he can't be fired though because he has got tenure and arbitrators say the school district never gave him a formal warning. he makes over 90 grand of tax dollars a year. no more textbooks at the university of maryland school officials there getting rid of them this fall. instead the students will use free online resources. it will save them thousands a year. and it's a win for after a lawsuit against praying high school football games dismissed by a judge. a group called the american humanist association claimed
5:46 am
the district promoted prayer and christianity through its athletic programs. that turned out not to be true. >> thank you very much, tucker. now for some presidential word play. a new poll asks voters what word they most associate with hillary clinton, jeb bush, and donald trump. and the results are, well, just plain brutal. but how much do they really matter when it comes to winning an election? we're joined now by gabriel gabriella a politics reporter for "the washington examiner." thank you very much for joining us. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> we are going to jump through each one of them for each one of these three candidates and get to you react quickly. first, what's the first word that comes to mind when you think of hillary clinton and the word that came up the most was liar, followed by dishonest, untrustworthy. there is experience and strong, bill and then also
5:47 am
woman. gabriella what does this tell us about hillary clinton. >> this reminds me of the 1980 election between carter and reagan. majority carter as weak. it had tremendous impact on his team. carter had said since is had he been a stronger president, perhaps he would have done better. when you look at hillary clinton, i think most americans are thinking had she been a more honest candidate from the get-go, perhaps she would be doing better. this is going to continue to impact her campaign, especially as this email scandal continues to deepen. >> i did some quick math and over 500 of the respond dents had a word that was like liar or dishonest for hillary clinton. now we go to jeb bush. they asked respond dents what comes to mind when you think of jeb bush. the first word that came to mind for a plurality was bush. then family, honest, weak, brother, dynasty and experience. what does it tell us about jeb bush and his chances. >> it tell us that jeb bush all of his efforts to distance himself from both his father and husband brother have obviously been
5:48 am
unsuccessful to this point. most americans continue to associate him with both of the former presidents. and that may not be be necessarily a bad thing because, as we have seen since president george w. bush left office, his favorability ratings have continued to climb. so, we should keep an eye out to see whether or not jeb bush is more open going forward to inviting his brother or perhaps his father to his campaign appearances and to his fundraising events or whether he continues to sell himself as an entirely different breed. >> interesting to think that bringing w on the trail would have some upside for it now we go to the donald. what do people think when they thought of donald trump, first words that came to mind were arrogant, blow hard, idiot, businessman, clown, honest, and ego. that's what people said first in this poll. what does this tell us about donald trump and his chances? >> i can't say that i'm surprised that most americans in this monthly indicated that donald trump is arrogant. his type of charisma and the confidence that he radiates is actually not unprecedented. we have seen two pretty
5:49 am
popular presidents, teddy roosevelt and bill clinton give off that same wildly optimistic attitude that trump has, and they were both very successful. they appeal to a max amount of americans and they earn that same report. we should continue to see how trump does, if his arrogance is something a tracts voters rather than repels them. as it's proved to do so far. >> hey gabriel real quick, what's worse being called arrogance or a liar. >> i would say being called a liar is tremendously damaging to somebody's campaign. >> it will be interesting to see what kind of -- you it's really early but words once they are set can really stick. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> another massive va failure caught on camera. paralyzed vets being left alone for hours. >> this happens every day. around this time no one at the front desk. if there was an emergency, we are screwed. this is a front desk area. no one attending at all. >> now presidential candidate and neurosurgeon
5:50 am
dr. ben carson says just get rid of the v.a. all together. is he right? we are going to debate it up next, anna faces the flames head on. >> looks like the flames are coming from the got to get this. >> we'll have her part two of training with the nyc fire department, the nypd and the fire department next. before i h burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain, these feet... ...served my country... ...carried the weight of a family... ...and walked a daughter down the aisle. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda-approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions.
5:51 am
tell your doctor right away if you have these, new, or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and my biggest reason to walk... ...calls me grandpa. ask your doctor about lyrica.

5:56 am
right-hand turn there. let's go. >> reporter: you've got a baby. very often toddlers hide under the bed because they get scared. we've got the victim. mission accomplished. you can see why 85% to 90% don't make it through. it is tough. >> it's impressive. >> they are the bravest. all right. coming up next, a sad story, a shocking story. ambushed and executed for no apparent reason. texas deputy gunned down at a gas station overnight. there are a lot of breaking details in the story. we'll have more at the top of the hour. also tropical storm erika leaving a trail of death and destruction in the caribbean. how that storm is headed here. so just how big of a threat is erika to the florida coastline? rick reichmuth tracking the storm's path next. with relief so smooth and fast.

hitting a sour note for having a surrogate. she says she was too busy to be pregnant. is there anything wrong with that? we report, you decide. nothing wrong with tucker. mornings are better with friend. a ana. my two friend. thanks for joining us this morning. a "fox news alert." tragedy in texas overnight. a sheriff's deputy was murdered, gunned down execution style as he was pumping gas into his patrol car. >> this morning a suspect is thankfully in custody. >> will carr is live in los angeles with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. a little bit of good news after such a tragic evening in texas. the suspect is now in custody behind bars. etly his mother called police and turned her son in. authorities are saying this was an execution-style murder but a they say deputy darren goforth had just finished filling up his
6:02 am
car at a gas station when this suspect walked up behind him and opened fire. the sheriff se goforth fell to the ground but instead of running the suspect hovered over him and continued firing. goforth died at the scene. a short time after the harris county sheriff's office tweeted, "tonight we lost one of our brothers. this is an extremely difficult time right now for the harris county sheriff's office. #thinblueline." >> it strikes us in the heart, to simply be a target because you wear a badge and for no other reason hit you where row live. >> it's an act of cowardice and brutality the likes of which i've never seen before. >> after the shooting, the suspect took off in a ford ranger pickup truck. now that he's behind bars authorities are trying to figure out exactly why he targeted deputy goforth who is a ten-year veteran, a father of two, and a husband. he is the 22nd member of law enforcement to be shot and killed this year in the united
6:03 am
states. guys, back to you. >> thanks a lot, will. all right. now to extreme weather. the national hurricane center saying erika is no longer a tropical storm. this comes after at least 20 people were killed on the small island of domnica. >> florida governor rick scott not taking any chances, issuing a state of emergency. >> where is this storm going? is it a threat to you? could it come to florida? rick reichmuth has been covering this from the first moments and has the latest. >> last hour we were saying that the mountains really disrupted it, dissipating. it's likely at 11:00 they'll stop issuing advisories. there will no longer be a track. ultimately the best news we could see for florida. this is moisture here even though it's dissipating. that doesn't mean there's not a lot of moisture associated with it and thunderstorms. it's the center of this or what has been a center is becoming very, very difficult to find and likely at the surface, at the low level of the atmosphere, there is no longer a circulation. that means it's no longer a
6:04 am
tropical storm. when that happens, even though the water temperatures are very warm ahead of this path, if there isn't a lower-level circulation it will not strengthen. i've had a lot of people message me on twitter saying but the water so warm, it's going to strengthen back. it will not strengthen in a considerable way, but it would take a lot of time over that water and a lot of thunderstorm activity for that to happen. we don't expect to see that happen. so this track that you're seeing right here from the national hurricane center that brings maybe a storm here will likely at least at this point not be happening any longer after the 11:00 advisory. doesn't mean that moisture isn't going someplace and it will start in florida starting tomorrow afternoon. we'll see pretty heavy showers there and maybe some spots see 3 to 5 inches of rain around the tampa area, which has seen a lot of flooding in the last month. not good news for them but overall a much better scenario heading into tomorrow and monday. >> folks in florida have been spooked. all the water has gone in a lot
6:05 am
of stories we've been reporting. >> this was a big one. sometimes we said all along with this one it was a really difficult forecast. sometimes we're really confident in the forecast. this wasn't the one. we've had so many possible scenarios. the scenario of interaction with land, that's the one that won out here. >> good news. season has begun. we have showed you what's happening on the republican side of the presidential race. meanwhile, lots happening with the hillary clinton for president campaign. she's made a couple of very tough, some say completely over-the-top statements about her republican opponents. if you missed the first one two days ago, watch this. >> extreme views about women. we expect that from some of the terrorist groups. we expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world. but it's a little hard to take coming from republicans who want to be the president of the united states. >> are you really that desperate you're going to try to compare
6:06 am
the gop to terrorist groups like isis, beheading people, burning people in cages in the streets? i don't think so. many are also saying that yesterday it got even worse when she made a holocaust reference, many think, and trying to jab the gop again. listen. >> i find the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort, including perhaps national guard and others, to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them, i don't know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border. >> which republican candidate
6:07 am
said that? i don't remember that. referring to her opponents as terrorists and nazis. >> she's desperate right now, fall back on the war on women and the war on immigrants. i live in minneapolis. i happened to run into ed henry on the street. he was about to head into her press conference. he had a chance to ask her the tough questions. look what she had to say. >> were you aware that your husband wanted to use hate speeches to repress a regime? do you have any comment on these that raise questions about conflict of interest with aberdeen? >> well, let me answer one of your questions because i think that's what you are entitled to. >> wow. >> speaking of entitled.
6:08 am
by the way, the question was interesting. the moment she' going on with the war on women her husband tried to take $650,000 from the dictators of congo, described by the u.n. as the rape capital of the world, where there is a war on women taking place, her family will profit from this, and she didn't even bother to answer the question. >> almost sound like a fake story but it's not. >> doesn't like getting questions from ed henry these days. >> shouldn't have to. just shut up and make her president, america. other stories making headlines. a stunt pilot is dead after hi plane plummets to the ground and crashes into woods. witnesses snapping these photographs showing the tail breaking off moments before the plane takes a steep dive into a line of trees. officials say the pilot was practicing tricks for this week's air show in new york's hudson valley. the cause is under investigation. we are learning brand-new details about the man accused of killing two television

6:10 am
that stick around. >> he was there when i was a kid and i'm old. >> you're not old, tucker. you know what's getting old? the scandals at the department of veterans affairs. another massive va failure caught on camera. >> this happens every day. around this time, no one's here at the front desk. if there was an emergency, we're screwed. this is the front desk area. no one attending at all. >> pavets left alone for hours. ben carson says just get rid of the va all together. we'll debate it. a 3-year-old walks home and no one even noticed? how does that happen?

republican presidential candidate dr. ben carson, a neurosurgeon, says the size of the government needs to be reduced. the first thing he says needs to go, interestingly, the va. could he have a point? just this week we learned workers at the memphis va abandon paralyzed veterans leaving them to sit alone for hours. and one veteran had to wait a year for his posttraumatic stress syndrome because one of his kwoshgers changed his name to kookoo. brandon coleman and nathan fletcher, both marines, join us. thank you very much for joining us, the two of you. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> thanks for having me. >> brandon, you're a whistle-blower at phoenix where the scandal started.
6:15 am
the va, does it need to be fundamentally overhauled? >> i think it needs to be fundamentally overhauled. if you take my case, for example, i came forward as a whistle-blower because suicidal veterans were freely walking out of the hospital. i went to the news media, congress, the office of special counsel, and the day after i went to the news media the director held a secret meeting. his name is glen griffin. and proposed my termination when he was told we can't terminate him because he's protected as a whistle-blower, the council for the va said but we can come up with adverse employee actions. less than two weeks later i was removed under charges that i had threatened another employee. so we can use a lot of accountability at the va. >> they than, great point. a whistle-blower who stands up, seems the whistle-blowers are the only ones getting fired thee days. you said the va might need mountains of change. what kind of change is needed to overhaul it? >> i want to start off by saying we talk a lot about heros in the context of military and those who serve, but brandon who's
6:16 am
sitting here with us is a true the problems andut himself out the deficiencies where our veterans are not being served. as a vet, i appreciate that because if question ear not made aware of the problem, we can't begin to change them. at its core, i don't think anyone's been more critical of the veterans administration. but we are an incredibly indus roust people. we managed to put a man on the moon. we have built little missiles that can go in a window all the way around the world. we have it in our capacity to design system where we can design, screen, and treat our veterans. we need the same attention on caring for them that goes into making them. if we do, that we can fulfill our obligations to serve our veterans. what's happened is a disgrace. i disagree with dr. carson. you can't end it. you can't just say, well, we're just not going to honor our commitment. we have to fix it and we have the ability to do that. >> no disputing we want to honor our commitment, but this is a country that sent a man to the moon but can't get a health care
6:17 am
appointment for a veteran in a timely fashion. >> but we can. >> hold on. dr. carson is saying go to a va facility or a private provider if necessary. >> absolutely i support choices. as a disabled veteran i feel if the phoenix va is giving the level of service i earned by serving this country, i should be able to go to the phoenix va. if they're not giving topnotch service, i earn the right to go to a private provider. it makes the phoenix va step up their game. it's called competition. if the va improves their service, i can come back to them. if i don't feel they have improved their service, tiff right to get care where i choose to get care. >> nathan, what do you say about choice as a solution to these problems? >> i don't have a choice. if the choice is between a well-functioning va that we hold accountable -- but that's not what dr. carson proposed. what he proposed was a privatization, the fact we're going to give you a voucher or hsa and send you out into the street. i would say veterans have unique
6:18 am
circumstances. if you're someone who has not had your limbs ripped from your body from an ied, if you haven't had your bones crushed by a fully automatic weapon, if you don't suffer from posttraumatic stretch, you can get a voucher and roll down to walgreens and see a nurse. but if you're someone who who has, we need a detailed program fit for you not focused on profit, focused on care. i don't care if that's what routine care, if there's a better way to do that, i don't have a problem with that option. a lot of what's being proposed the do away with the va and kick everyone out. i don't support that. >> dr. carson did talk about making sure specialized services are provided. two marines still fighting for their country, thanks for joining me. >> thanks for having us. a boy scout keeps his dad alive in the wilderness for two days after he gets hit by a boulder the size of a refrigerator. you'll hear from that teen just ahead.

a "fox news alert." tragedy in texas. a sheriff's deputy gunned down overnight execution-style, murdered bay stranger while pumping gas in his patrol car. this morning the suspect is in custody. that's what we know. fox 26 reporter john donnelly is live in harris county, texas, where it all happened. he's got the latest. john? >> reporter: yeah. we're blocks from where the shooting happened.
6:23 am
we are outside the suspect's house. you can see sheriff's deputies are here, they've been processing the scene this morning. it happened around 8:30 last night. darren goforth was fueling his patrol car when a suspect approached him from behind without saying a single word and simply opened fire. after the deputy fell to the ground, the suspect stood over him and fired several more shots. the sheriff of harris county se that he was targeted simply because of what he did for a livi living. >> it strikes us in the heart, to simply be a target because you wear a banal and for no other reason hits you where you live. >> reporter: we are trying to get more information about this suspect and why he did this, why he would walk upened execute a stranger. john donnelly for fox news. >> thanks, john. ana? 23 minutes after the hour. ralph lauren's daughter has had

sweet success growing her candy stores, dylan's candy bar. now she's hitting a sour note with many for saying she was too busy to be pregnant but she wanted a baby so she hired a surrogate to have one for her. did she do anything wrong? man, folks are weighing in. stephanie weiss and liz stern join me. thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having us. >> stephanie, good idea, bad idea? >> bad idea. i think the message to parents who cannot have children naturally and are ewing surrogates because they desperately want children is -- it's not a good message to them. >> just having a surrogate for nine months isn't going to solve the problem of having a busy schedule, will it? >> no. it was dillon's choice. it was right at the time for her and her family and her husband. i'm not going to judge her. this is what at the time she
6:25 am
felt was right and she wanted to have a surrogate have her children. i think that, again, that's okay. that's her choice. that's what she chose to do. and i'm not going to sit here and judge her for the way that she chose to have her children because i feel like she really wanted these children and obviously maybe there are other reasons we don't know about. >> seems like a foreign concept to many people. but 2,000 babies in the united states were expected to be born through surrogacy last year alone. it is an expensive process. dylan had the money to do this and also has the money to hire some help, the best education, and it takes a village to raise a child. >> nanny or no nanny, these babies are coming and they yore yours. nannies quit, you fire them, they don't work out. they're your babies. for nine months to think -- your stomach is in your throat because you have this surrogate that's supposed to be taking care of your babies just how you would is not always the case. i happen to have a friend who eight years ago had babies via
6:26 am
surrogate. i asked her about this last night. i said, how did you feel for those nine months? and she said i was nervous. >> are they eating right, are they drinking alcohol? >> doing drugs. >> but you know what, again, i think she really -- again, i'm sure she had a very -- she probably knew exactly what she was getting into, who the surrogate was. i'm sure they did a lot of extensive research. >> but they all do. >> yes. i think at this point she wanted these children and this is what was right for her and her husband at this time. i think and i know dylan personally, i think she's going to be an amazing mother. >> and she probably will. but -- >> but i think that she will really truly -- she's going to love these children. maybe they will be raised -- i'm sure they'll have help and have nannies. she's going to give them her unconditional love. >> i think the message parents are so angry about is here she
6:27 am
is, like we said, she's running around, doing her life the way every one of us is doing, no stress about being pregnant, being uncomfortable, feeling the struggles that pregnant mothers feel. i'm sure there are a lot of people feeling like, hey, why didn't you go through it the way we did? >> like a slap in the face. >> exactly. >> but slippery slope. science allows it, you can have babies made and put them in incubators for nine months. is that going to be okay if you have the money in the future? lot of angles on this story. here's what's coming up on "fox & friends." how does this happen? a 3-year-old leaves daycare, walks home, and no one noticed? how can you make the most out of the last days of summer without breaking the bank? we're having fun. rick is doing a potato sack race. and a great bluegrass band warming up on the plaza. ♪

6:44 am
recycling center and he's making it his mission to return them. they belong to william j. mckay. the man who found him hopes to get in touch with him or his family. over to you. hopefully they find him. back-to-school time all across the country, but some college students at washington state university are in for a rude awakening. i feel like this might happen at a few other campuses as well. some professors at washington state are telling them if they say word like illegal alien or female their grade could actually suffer. sterling beard is the editor in chief of campusreform.org. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> i want to run through a couple of these professors and the class. if you take one class in women in popular culture, the class policy is no use of the word females, males, or illegal aliens, and if you use those words you could be removed from class without participation points or fail an assignment. how can this be?
6:45 am
>> it's born out of desire to sort of keep the classroom environment healthy and a good learning environment. but the problem is when you're outlawing terms like illegal alien or female, especially in a course where a professor expects students to engage in controversial material, that's an attempt to control students' speech and influence their opinions. you can't really have that at a good college. >> happening at a lot of colleges. say i skip that class but went to rebecca fowler's class called introduction to comparative ethnic studies. in this policy students will not use the word illegal aliens or illegals. the punishment is one point deducted every time they use those words. the speech have gone into not saying things but you're hurt if you say them in this class. >> absolutely the case. we reached out to professor fowler and she told her objection to the term illegal immigration is it had become synonymous in popular culture with illegal border crossings
6:46 am
from south of the border and everywhere. using her term, undocumented immigrants only confuses the issue. nobody said in the vietnam war that a draft-dodger was an undocumented soldier, for example. >> the contortions are endless. one more professor. we skip those two, we're in the clear with john streamas and his class introduction to multicultural literature. you have to defer to the experience of people in color and reflect on your own social location and privileges and power. the punishment if you don't is removal from class. is this white privilege in classroom form? >> absolutely white privilege in classroom form. the problem is when you're engaging in controversial material that these courses cover, even if you want to honestly question or want to learn, you always run the risk of offending a fellow classmate, especially if you are expected to defer to the experiences of nonwhite students. of course there are consequences if you're not respectful in that course. >> sterling beard, thanks for
