tv Happening Now FOX News September 16, 2015 10:00am-11:01am PDT
big tooth think grins. that is because, not for flings. we're going our own fling, "outnumbered overtime." go to the web. foxnews.com,/ot tab. tune into our debate coverage, pre-and post with, bill o'reilly 8:00 p.m. live. we'll be there. "happening now" right now. in the reagan library. and collapse and economic meltdown felt here and around the world. seven years after the fall of
lehman brothers. and also under water. the luxury car in the wrong place at the wrong time all "happening now". >> we start the second half-hour with the republican countdown. welcome to "happening now", i am jon scott. >> hi, everybody. i am jenna lee. and they are slugging it out in prime time. donald trump is front runner in the center of the main stage and the other candidates hope that strong performance will boost the game. carl cameron is in the reagan presidential library in simi valley, california where it will all take place. how are things shaping up for tonight. >> reporter: it will be spinning mightily all day and tomorrow.
it is a very late night. and donald trump is the national and front runner in most of the early voting states. last night he novembers los angeles for what he billed as a national security speech on the deck of the uss iowa. he did talk about veteran's issue and rebuilding the military as he said for a number of weeks now. here is a sambling of the national security speech. >> we'll create a new system and take the system apart and if they are not doing the job. the veterans will go to private doctors and public hospitals. and right now, you know it, we have illegal immigrants that are treated better than our veterans. it is not going to happen. >> reporter: the second part of that is rhetoric about the illegal immigrants and the first
part about the doctors that are not part of the va. that's what they are supposedly doing. trump will be under serious fire by dr. ben carson. he's surging in the polls and in new hampshire there is a poll out that he is in the lead but it is a virtual tie. and carson and trump have been trading elbows in the case of trump and carson who is trying to avoid the fight. and that is catching on with early republican primary voters and then carly fiorina. she made the prime time debate stage and has been in a spat where he talked about her face and she made an a d, firing back. and carly fiorina has an opportunity. and three outside onners are the ones that the nation will be watching most tonight and the
message is by far professional politicians are a pain in the the neck and they are looking for a different perspective and approach. that leaves eight establishment type. governors or senators or former candidates including mike huckabee. it is a wide open field that is basically in the low single digits and tied in the basements and all of them looking for break out moments. next time there is a debate, it is entirely there will not be 11 candidates and it will be back down to ten. and the hope to get it down to 6 or 7 by next year. >> thank you very much, carl. jon? the moderator of the debate promises to grill candidates on foreign policy. donald trump and ben carson and carolina fiorina. trump and carson have stumbled
on policy questions before. we'll talk about it with a b stoodard and columnist for the hill. so is this a make or break moment for donald trump, a b? >> well, i think when we say something is going to break donald trump it doesn't happen. but certainly donald trump's answer in a recent interview with hughhewit on security and it was abysmal and he does what he does when he doesn't do well. he attacks the radio announcer and not host. tonight he will expect foreign policy questions. i don't know if he will answer them better. he will probably say the questions are unfair and he's shown a lack of interest in
talking about the threats over seas and home land. carly fiorina taking a huge interest and comes well versed for the discussion of these matters. it is a contrast and i am not sure it will sink donald trump. >> the standard answer is i will hire good and smart people to take care of that? can he get away with that? >> your question make or break. the one guy the debate doesn't make or break. he supposedly gave a foreign policy speech yesterday which was a stream of consciousness that had nothing to do with foreign policy and so i think he's probably safe. in terms of his standard answer. i am in favor of delegating the
people and ronald reagan was great. but know what you don't know in order to figure out the right people to hire and it is not clear that trump knows what he doesn't know and that he understands what he has to go to school on and we'll probably see that in the debate. he would help himself if he surprised everybody with policy specifics. but he would have helped himself in the past and i doubt he will change his path. why should he. he's doing great. >> ab, last time around republican candidates were gathering to deny president obama a second term, one debate would come and a new candidate would shoot to the top of the heap. do you see that happening or will donald trump will be on top? >> i think you are right in carl's report shows we are looking at top outsiders.
all. support is surging to the outside candidates and not current governors or senators and eyes are on fiorina, and carson and trump. and there are others in the field who will be focusing on who really have to keep their campaigns alive. jeb bush might not disappear if he had a bad debate. scott walker is on life support. he has to come back or he will be written off by his donors. kasich had a good debate and so did rubio. it did the not elevate them. and i don't know if we will have a new front runner. >> jonna, the moments of the debate are haphazard but comes across as who is perceived to have a good night or winner? >> in the first debate. ben carson didn't have a great
night but had a wonderful moment or two and that launched him on his way. marco rubio had a consistently fantastic night but not knock it out of the park moments that was repeated on the internet and news and that's what they are going for. a lot of these people may just decide not to attack trump at all and attack jeb in order to prove they are anti- establishment, too. don't lump me in there with jeb. i am an outsider. cruz will take more shots at jeb than he will at donald trump and i can see the others following the same strategy. >> he and donald trump are almost like buddy, buddy. and a b stoodard and jonna, thank you. >> and we'll hear from you, which candidate has a break out
performance tonight. we'll go to fox -- foxnews.com/happeningnow and tune in after the debate starting at 11:00 p.m. eastern right here on fox. >> other big news today. a big push in washington d.c. to get congress to extend health care for 9/11 first responders. jon stewart led the rally on capitol hill with first responders and many of them sickened after work nothing ground 0. >> and health will care will expire next month. a lot of firefighters and police officers who were at ground 0 after 9/11 made the trip down to washington d.c. to lobby law makers for help they need. >> you remember when the governor said the air was safe to breathe? >> yes. >> i do, too. and now it is time for congress
to get off its but the and do its job, because that's what they are paid for. >> supporters of the 9/11 health compensation act had a tough time trying to get the bill to be a law due to uncertainty of how many people were sick and illnesses needed to be treated. without knowing those things it was difficult to project the cost. there is bipartisan support for a permanent extension and this group brought jon stewart to dc and he is putting serious pressure on law makers who may not be on board. >> today on the hill, you will be exposed to toxic levels of [bleep] and arrogance. you are strong men and scombem these are conditions you may never have faced before.
>> the effort is led by new york law makers and everybody on the hill has a constituent covered by the program. there is someone enrolled in the world trade center health care of 429 of 435 directs. >> a massacre in charleston, south carolina church. shocking allegations against the prime suspect's roommate. could there be another arrest in the case? federal reserve considering the first interest rate hike. it doesn't seem to have the street bothered right now. up 111 points. what does it mean for your 401 k?

days before he opened fire on a combroup of worshipers. they believe that friend lied to authorities and knew about the crime and never reported it. in an evidence hearing, the judge released some police documents in connection with the shooting including crime scene photos. >> all eyes on wall street. the federal reserve debates on whether to raise interest rates for the first time in nine years. >> it is a nail biter and doesn't happen for another 25 hours. yes, around this time tomorrow, 2:00 p.m. eastern time, the federal reserve will decide whether to do something it hasn't done in nine years and that is tighten the interest rate. janet yellum, she took over from ben bernanke. they are all mulling the
decision today and tomorrow as to whether this economy is now healthy enough to sustain a teeny tiny 25 basis point rate hike. a quarter of a single percentage point. in the past, we were in an emergency type situation and then the economy slowly started to strengthen and just a couple of months ago, yellun said it is the economy that can sustain a hike. but then sfr enter china. the stock market had huge problems. and china had to intervene so exports would be more attractive to the countries like the united states. the market had trouble. and here in the united states, we are seeing better employment numbers and unemployment rates, we saw hewlett packard suddenly
announce they are laying off on top of the 55000 another 33300 jobs. and so head winds and paired with tail winds and it is anybody's guess as to what will happen tomorrow. it is a huge nail biter. >> with the market up 100 points right now, they are seem to discount the affect of a rate hike. >> people are realizing that the economy can sustain a normalized rate tike. but if you have saving's account you are getting miniscul. and we want to reward people who save. we are not in an emergency situation. but then 2:00 p.m. tomorrow we'll know what the federal reserve. >> i love it when i get $0.03 of
interest on my checking account. >> thank you very much. >> and a twist in the case against a woman accused of killing her fiance in a kyakting trip on the hudson river. what she said that prosecutors say proves she guilty. >> for california homeowners, it is too little too late. a look at the devastation. >> this is something you see in the movies. it looks like a walking dead scene and i am waiting for the zombies to come walking out. i don't think hollywood could pull this off. it is a disaster. help support brain health - now that's smart nutrition. ensure's complete balanced nutrition has 26 vitamins and minerals and 9 grams of protein. ensure. take life in.

74000 acre is 40 percent contained in lake county they are ark sessioning the wildfires that tore through. much needed rain is expected to pass through the area to top firefighters and too much rain was the problem in southern california for a owner of a brand new lamboguini. it was nearly submerged following a huge down pour yesterday afternoon. >> and this fox news alert. the oklahoma appeals court granted a two week stay. two hours before he was scheduled to die. attorneys went to the court when the governor fallon refused to issue a stay claim new evidence proves he is innocent. he was found guilty for ordering the death of his boss.
prosecutor said he hired a man to kill him. glossip's attorney said he was framed by the hit man. we'll see where it goes from here. >> a new video expected in the case of a woman accused of murdering her fiance. prosecutor argue she sabstaged the kyakt that led to a drowning on the river. she admitted to wanting him dead. >> it was a long time. >> you wanted him to to die. and i wanted him dead and now he's gone. >> we'll bring in our trial attorney. and richard st. paul is back with us. and criminal defense attorney and it was a snippet of the police interview which was 11 hours, heather and yes, i want
him dead and now he's gone. >> that confession is the big deal of the trial and the confession will be put on trial. what was the circumstances and the fact it went on so long and she has arguably trouble with the english language and all of it will make it less of a punch. it is the best evidence against her. some observers critized the police and essentially bullied her to making the confession and keeping her there len hours. >> in the end of the day. the defense will prove to suppress the confession based on the fact she was intorated and the prosecution case will not hold water. >> and why not? given the kinds of things she said, can prosecutors go back
and look at some of the other aspects of the case. the kyakt plug that was tampered with. can they get a confession on that? >> looking at physical evidence and confession and match it. and the fact that she removed the plug a long time ago didn't mean to murder. the prosecution has a long way to go before they put the murder weapon the fact that he did not wear a life jacket and 46 degrees outside and windy that day, that is what killed her fiance. it is a long way to go before they can prove beyond a reasonable doubt she killed him. >> if richard is right. there were swells on the hudson river and the water was 46 degrees. you know, even the most fit swimmer will get in trouble with
hypothermia. and if that is all of the case, how did she get arrested in the first place. >> it took time for her to get arrested. her posting on facebook and interactions with the police led to her arrest. there is no physical evidence and confession and facebook post will be used against her. if the confession is thrown out or defense make it look suspect when it gets to trial, they will have a difficult time going beyond a reasonable doubt. >> motive is always a key element. she stood to inherit a quarter of a million from the life insurance. that would make the jury to sit up and take notice. >> if you can't get the confession in, the motive doesn't matter. motive, the prosecution doesn't have to prove and it will not
come to the jorif the confession is suppressed as heather said. >> if the confession is suppressed can they get a conviction here? >> we only have bits and pieces of their evidence. they have charged with her murder and involuntarily manslaughter. they are going for an intentional crime and cover all bases f. you are a prosecutor, you hope that there is evidence that is physical evidence or something else. if that confession is not brought in, i don't see how they can bring it to trial. >> it is a strange one. richard and heather, thank you both. >> thank you, jon. >> top military brass admitting to a disaster in the fight against isis. what it is in their plan to get back on track. >> seven years after the collapse of lehman brothers.
new questions of how much the economy and banking system improved since then? >> you look at the contrast of what we see from republicans on capitol hill. instead of playing games and imposing another set of self inflicted wounds. republicans in congress need to do the job the voters asked them to do.
between president obama and benjamin netanyahu, prime minister of israel have not always been the best. but we learned that netanyahu will be visiting the united states and the president in particular on november ninety-ninth. we'll certainly keep you updated as preparations get underway for benjamin netanyahu's visit. quick look at headlines, a ceasefire in eastern ukraine seems to be holding. the agreement is in two weeks now. previous attempts failed after a matter of days. and a hollywood comedian admits he lied about narrowly escaping the 9/11 attack. he claimed that it helped him launch his career. he lied about working about merril lynch.
and car seating are being recalled. it is affecting proride and performance ride seats that can detach in the event of a crash. >> seven years since lehman brothers collapsed. this was the scene on wall street on that day. and employees packed up and left. this was in midtown manhattan where lehman brothers was based. the federal reserve cut interest rates to 0 and hoping to help the economy. we have a big meeting today and tomorrow and will the fed change those rates? and charlie is joining us. and mark founder and ceo of matsen money. and keith fitzgerald chief strategist for monday
morning.com. and we remember the day lehman collapse. we got to work and the streets were so busy and the panic was at that time. how much better off are we today than seven years ago? >> i covered the financial crisis and we should point out it began earlier than the collapse. it started a year before and continued in 2008 and 9. the dow hit 6000. and listen, we are not in the same shape. we have more rules. but we have other problems. and if you ask what have we learned? we learned that wall street guys are greedy and we haven't learned that government aided and abetted the crisis. and that government is meddling in the economy now. it skews decision making and
makes you take more risk. government still incentizing. and they will lend to anybody that has eye heart boat and maybe not a job. those perimeters are in play still. they are incentives for banks to lend people mortgages and still the banking system is still big. merrill lynch is gone and citigroup and lehmans is gone. >> that is interesting, some have said to me as i have done interviews and preparations for the fed and dates like this for example, the debt that banks were handling has somehow been moved around balance sheets and not solved in a lot of ways it is moved on to the government's balance sheet. and the toxicity did not leave the system.
are we better off. >> i think of lehman. i think don't get caught stock picking. it was at $86 and then twrent months later at 0. don't get leveraged up as an investors. and that creates a lot of risk. and don't get caught speculating and they betted that mortgages would go up and real estate up. and they were wrong. >> keith, do you agree with that? >> no, i take issue with that respectively. i think the risks are more concentrated and we learned that the government is messing with things and they don't understand. and regulators are outclassed and wall street likes it that way and why the penalties are a slap on the wrist. there is not a criminal prosecution out of this. and the final linchpin, the
american public. they have socialized risk. and the american public is holding the bag. >> is that what the fed has done? >> it is it a combination of factors. it is what the fed and regulators haven't done and wall street encouraged them not to do. >> too big to fail exists at that point. >> charlie, you are sounding like bernie sanders and i never thought i would say. that here's what bernie. >> don't get carried away. >> and here's what bernie said. it is time to break up the banks and the casinno gambling diverted all income. >> bernie sander ares wants to socialize the banks. and i would say this, banks should be smaller and what is a free market way to do that. government insurance. if you will want to be risk taking and customer deposits,
we'll not insure your deposits and when you do that, banks will break up and be smaller and manageable. and they will break up. bernie sander ares wants the federal government go in there and basically own the banks. >> thanks for the clarification. >> and a lot of free market. it is antifree market to incentize it through deposit risk. >> what is next for the federal reserve? and the question is does the federal reserve hold too much power with wall street. everyone is so focused on the discussion? >> i think yes. i think they made a huge mistake not raising rates. and now it is boxed in and almost has to raise the rates tomorrow. >> mark, do you agree with that. >> i don't and here's y. the fed doesn't control interest rates. the real interest rates are controlled by supply and demand.
excuse me. >> and the idea that the fed controls interest rates over 10-20 years is a fallacy. and don't ignore what the fed does and focus on the long-term. >> sir, with with all due respect. you ever heard of quantitative easing. >> we talked about. quantified easing has done nothing for the economy. that's another story. [all talk you go] >> international banks have politicsless. and this idea that the feds. >> if we can get past quantitative easing. one of the reasons we are talking about the banking system. some say they are better off and that the economy is back off. they believe the american economy can absorb the slightly
higher rates? are things better? >> a lot of people believe if the tooth fairy, too. the fed ignores the data and ignored the crisis formation when it happen and don't have a clue how real money works. if they raise rates, what they claim to be following is showing a stronger economy. that is not happening. >> are you saying that the fed is too big to fail? here we are full circle that the fed is too big to fail. >> absolute slee. they should get out of the way. and i am not sure we need the fed. that is another subject. >> bring it back to reality. we do need a federal reserve and control the money and we need one that is transparent. and the fed has controlled interest rates and it hasn't helped the economy. and now the fed is basically controlling the global and creating a global stock market
and can asset bubble. if it raises rates tomorrow it will start popping. >> and the fed doesn't control the interest rate or stock markets. [talking over each other] >> you are hurting investors with. that >> thank you, gentleman. we could see what happens tomorrow. thank you very much. >> thank you, jenna. >> fire workinworkfireworks. and on capitol hill as well. american's commander in the middle east. what he told law makers about meeting the goals in fighting against the terrorist group. >> and the makeig of budweiser interested in a multibillion deal to make it the largest beer maker on the planet. knows dinner
tastes better when it's homemade. like chicken blanketed in golden breadcrumbs and wholesome sides with her signature touches. all topped with thick, homemade gravy. because dinner shouldn't take all day... just taste like it did. marie callender's. it's time to savor heart health's important... ...so you may... take an omega-3 supplement... ...but it's the ingredients inside that really matter for heart health. new bayer pro ultra omega-3 has two times the concentration of epa and dha as the leading omega-3 supplement. new bayer pro ultra omega-3.

anheuser bruce bud wiser and coronna. and miller makes pillsener. they have not seen the proposal details. it would trigger intense reviews. >> commander of u.s. forces in iraq and general lloyd austin facing tough questions about isis and what the u.s. is doing to wipe out the terrorist group. jennifer, at this hearing this morning, what happened? >> reporter: jenna, first of all we were not told that the commander general lloyd austin would appear in the hearing called by senate armed services chairman senator john mccain. there was damning revelations about the state of the fight against isis. >> i have been a member of the
committee and never heard testimony like this. never. i have never seen a hearing that is divorced from the reality of every outside expert and what you are saying. >> reporter: after the angry outburst, general austin admitted that the syrian train and equipment program has essentially failed. >> it is a small number and the ones that are in the fight is, we are talking 4 or 5. at the pace we are going, we'll not reach the goal that we established for ourselves. >> 4 or 5 syrian opposition who have been trained for millions. they author 500 million to train them to fight isis a year ago, jenna. >> this is the first time
general lloyd austin has been in the hot seat since reports emerged. cent rom intelligence officers were forced to cook the books. what did he say about that? was he questioned. >> reporter: he was. and general austin would not comment on the specifics and complaint by the intelligence analyst complaining they felt pressured to cook the books on the effectiveness of the u.s. campaign to defeat isis. >> i will assure you we will do everything in our power to insure that the whistle blowers remain protected and there is no retaliation. >> if we don't have reliable intelligence and if the president doesn't have reloyable intelligence we can't make good policy. this keeps happening and this goes back to the bay of pigs and
vietnam and iraq war. >> the pentagon inspector general's investigation began with a complaint that two analyst said superiors pressure made them give positive assessmen assessments. the number who have joined the complaint is up to 50. florida beach goers get surprise as a group of migrants comes ashore at a popular tourist destination. they're not the first to arrive in recent months. diabetes, steady is exciting. only glucerna has carbsteady, clinically proven to help minimize blood sugar spikes. so you stay steady ahead. awe believe active management can protect capital long term. active management can tap global insights. active management can take calculated risks.
