expert with ramsey solutions. he joins us live to explain. good morning, chris. how do we allot money for this time in life looking ahead? >> i think the most important thing you can do is to understand what you want retirement to look like. what is your dream? are you planning to retire, maybe just spend time with family? i want people to give thought to that. then you need to sit down and assess where you are versus where you want to be. now what i developed was a tool, it's called riq. it's on my website to understand how much they're going to need to live their retirement driems. >> how does that work? >> well, you just plug in some basic information, how much you want to live on per month and how many years you plan to retire and currently how much you have saved. what the tool will do is show you exactly how much you need. if you're a little bit behind or way behind, it will show you how much you need to start to invest today to live your dreams. >> we'll have the -- if you go to "fox and friends".com, we'll link to your website, chris. you say one of the threats to
3:48 am
your retirement is the people who are depending on social security. why is that? >> well, as i travel around the country and talk to people, so many people are thinking stephanie sy is going to come to the rescue. i don't think they understand that the average is around $13,000 a year paid out in benefits. that's around $1100 a month. that's not enough to live a dream. that can feel like a nightmare. i want people to understand that social security can be the icing on the cake. it might be there. but i want you to work and plan like it won't be. >> okay. debt is something else to watch out for. >> yeah, debt is not your friend. it's your enemy. i tell people in my book that debt is a dream deterrent. it slows you down from living your dream. when you start to look at the car payments and the mortgages people are paying, what kind of progress could they make with that money if they weren't sending it to other companies. >> you got to find out your goals and don't outlive your money. that's the biggest fears people
3:49 am
have. >> not having a plan at all is another fear to face. >> that's the danger. i think when we keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, that's the definition of insanity. the reason i wrote the book, retire to -- i wanted feel firm in a plan. i've worked with people over the years to help them take back this territory and have confidence and i want more people to retire inspired. >> retirement expert, thank you. if you'd like his retirement calculator, go to "fox and friends".com shortly and it will be there. thanks for joining us from nashville. >> thank you for having me. >> you don't -- like you're ready to retire. >> i'm having too much fun. >> thanks, chris. why is isis always traveling around in ttoyota trucks?

he was a man of god on a mission, despite rising floodwaters, of historic proportions, biblical proportions really, a south carolina pastor ignored the warnings about the quality of the water and went in to that dirty water to retrieve an unearthed casket for a grieving
3:54 am
family. >> wayne reference is the senior pastor at new life ministries and he joins us this morning from columbia, south carolina. good morning to you, pastor. >> good morning. >> tell us what happened. you noticed some of the caskets were being taken away in this awful flooding. i know your daughter-in-law actually lost her house, as well. you see these caskets and you decide to get in the water. why? >> well, i pulled up, the church is right in my community where i live, and a crowd had drawn and i pulled up to see if i could assist in any way. i got there and there was family members there, and they were -- they were grieving, they were hurting. they saw their family members' caskets floating several hundred yards from the shore, and there was nothing they could do. and, you know, i'm compassionate, so i said what are we going to do? so i asked them to call and tell them that i was going retrieve
3:55 am
them and let them dispose of them. >> these caskets had actually been in the ground for awhile and popped out because of the floodwaters. what was the caution after they had said about the quality of the water that we are watching you wade through? >> i didn't think it was that bad. luckily, there was no homes close by, so there was not a lot of home debris. mostly swamp water. typical swamp water. in the low country, that wasn't anything unusual other than it was a lot of it. >> did you hear from the family whose casket you retrieved? when you finally got it to a better place, did you talk to them? >> when i -- yeah, when i brought it up to the hill, i've never been hugged so many times in my life. everybody there was so grateful. you know, it was -- the alternative was they were going to leave them there until the water receded, which the edisto won't even be until this saturday. so it was unbelievable. and there's no way in the world we could put that family through
3:56 am
that kind of torment. >> you did the right thing there. to raise the warnings and the conditions of that water. pastor we want to thank you for doing that. i'm sure the family gave you a great big hug, for sure. >> yeah, i was -- i was very relieved that they were satisfied with the decision that i made. >> job well done. thank you very much for getting up early with us here at "fox & friends." >> oh, you're welcome. >> all right. it is now four minutes before the top of the hour. coming up, hillary clinton takes a page from donald trump's playbook, sending republican candidates a care package. with her book! >> oh. how nice. >> but why she did, it may actually have you scratching your head. >> that's right. and pastor joel osteen is here answering your e-mails. you better have them in. what do you want to ask the pastor? send in your questions. he's got answers.

4:02 am
>> she had a lot of them down in the basement next to the server. so anyway, tell you about that in a minute. >> that server is not going away, by the way. there's a whole bunch of twists and turns there. >> and something about a cover-up? with a cloud company. wait until you hear about that. >> in the mean time we start with a fox news alert. >> the heavy rains over. but the problems are not. down in south carolina. >> yep. the death toll there rising to 15. rivers swollen, still rising. dams are at their near limits threatening more breaches and flash floods today. >> jonathan is live from columbia, south carolina where flood victims are just starting to pick up the pieces and try to get their lives back together. jonathan, good morning to you. >> good morning to you. engineers are keeping a nervous eye on those area dams. in fact emergency management officials are urging residents around beaver dam and pebble creek roads to move to higher ground. other neighborhoods are draining out from the floodwaters. case in point, this one here. you can see the power of the flood that knocked this house,
4:03 am
it unsteadied it on its foundation. over here you can see this puddle in the middle of what used to be a driveway. and it's a similar scene in other communities near rivers and streams. residents and cleanup crews removing water logged furniture and carpets from their homes and salvaging what personal items they can. then there's damaged infrastructure. the south carolina department of transportation reports that a total of 412 state roads and bridges are closed. when asked to put a dollar figure on all the daniel, here's what governor nikki haley said. >> we're not going to stop until we get everything we need to get back up and running, and fix again. that could be "x" amount of dollars. that's not my concern right now. >> in columbia, city water customers are under a boil water advisory. donations of bottled water have been coming in from other cities and states. and charleston based water missions international is setting up a purification system near a water tower here in columbia. the christian charity normally sends assistance to
4:04 am
international disasters in developing countries. but in this case, it's neighbor helping neighbor. back to you guys. >> all right, jonathan serrie down in columbia where the simple thing like just having a drink of water is complicated. >> man is south carolina being tested. between the shootings and this, man they all come together and they rise to the challenge. >> i love how so many people step up between first responders and offering their homes to those who lost it. just had the story of the pastor who went in after the casket. those are uplifting moments after the tragedy. heather nauert with a fox news alert. >> good morning to you. let's start overseas. fox news alert overnight the group doctors without borders calling for an independent fact finding mission into the u.s. air strike on a hospital in afghanistan. saying the deaths of 22 doctors and patients cannot be dismissed as collateral damage. yesterday the top u.s. commander in afghanistan admitted that that strike was a mistake. he also urged president obama to rethink his plan to withdraw u.s. troops by the end of 2016.

well, metal debris has just been discovered in the search for the el faro cargo ship that sank during hurricane joaquin. the ntsb now launching a go team to zero in on specific waters off the coast of florida looking for a ping from the ship's data recorder. we spoke to u.s. coast guard member gunner christianson earlier today to ask what could have gone so wrong on board? >> this storm unfortunately really was a bad collection of events. the storm increased and changed tracks at the same time that they lost propulsion. and once you become disabled with no propulsion, you can't stem the waves. in other words, keep your bow into the waves. >> with 28 americans among the 33 missing crew members. another terrifying scare in the air as united airlines co-pilot passes out midflight. the plane was on its way from houston to san francisco. it made a safe emergency landing in albuquerque.
4:06 am
the co-pilot now recovering in the hospital. no word on what caused him to pass out. but this comes just a day after american airlines pilot michael johnston suffered a heart attack and died midway through a flight from phoenix to boston. and a michigan factory worker, here's a nice story to bring you, out of a job but she is not crying about it. julie leach is america's newest millionaire. she won the $310 million powerball jackpot. she says she bought $20 worth of tickets after a long overnight shift at work. and when she hit all the right numbers, she didn't waste any time. listen to this. >> oh, i quit automatically. i'm going to take care of my kids. i don't want them to have to work like i had to work. and deal with the kind of things that i had to deal with over life. i just want to make it a good life for them. >> hard-working lady, emotional about that, too. she worked the third shift at a fiberglass factory.
4:07 am
she opted for the lump sum payment getting about $140 million after taxes. way to go, julie. she also joked that -- after taxes, yes. she joked she married her longtime boy friend of 36 years. she's going to make him sign a prenup. way to go. good head on her shoulders. >> not getting any of that. thanks, heather. >> she is taking it all in. heather, thanks. >> meanwhile, trucks for terrorists. united states wants toyota to explain how isis is getting their hands on so many toyota trucks and suvs. >> exactly. kristen fisher is live in washington with how the investigation is being launched. how did they get their hands on so many of these vehicles? >> that's what they're trying foig your out. we're talking about hundreds of brand-new toyota trucks and suvs. the treasury department is now investigating and they want to know where the toyota trucks are
4:08 am
coming from and how are so many of them hending up in the hands of terrorists. you've probably seen them in many propaganda videos, the trucks loaded with weapons and isis militants. toyota said they have no idea how isis obtained the vehicles. they have a strict policy not to sell vehicles to potential purchasers who may use or modify them for paramilitary or terrorist activities. it's believed middlemen have been smuggling the trucks into the country. other brands have also been spotted in the isis videos but nothing even remotely close to the amount of toyota vehicles. in fact, a former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. told abc news that regretly toyota has almost become part of the isis brand. toyota executives have briefed investigators and are fully cooperating with this ongoing investigation. brian, elisabeth and steve. >> it's disturbing. kristin, thanks. brand new quinnipiac
4:09 am
university swing state poll just came out. it measures voter sentiment into florida, ohio, and pennsylvania. and what they did was they took a look at ben -- they looked at all the candidates. but when it comes to the general elections, the best chance for the two contenders are ben carson, versus joe biden. >> that's right. >> in this latest poll. >> and joe biden winning over florida right now, 45-42. and ben carson taking ohio and pennsylvania. this is important because since 1960 no candidate has won the presidential race without taking two of the three swing states. so this is pretty exceptional look at what could be ahead when you look back. let's step back at the primaries -- >> and carson also wins in pennsylvania. >> pennsylvania, yep, and ohio. big news there. but then you have clinton and trump. and let's get back to primary season here. they're struggling when it comes to favorability. they have the worst over all favorability ratings and the lowest scores for being honest and trustworthy of any of the leading candidates so far. >> but they're still both leading. hillary leads on the democrat
4:10 am
side and donald trump, you know, mainstream media, when is he going to drop the? he's still leading substantially. in florida he's got 28, double rubio and bush. in ohio he leads carson and kasich and in pennsylvania he is leading carson and rubio. donald, swing states, donald trump still ahead? >> in the swing states hillary clinton still ahead. >> quick note on biden. joe biden's got to make a decision. probably going to happen this weekend. won't be in the debate. on top of that the big story that developed yesterday is that politico has the story that joe biden leaked out his own son's death wish, which was for him to run for president, and that was in maureen dowd's column, and then the biden camp came back and said this is unbelievably i. we would never do that. so some say that might be a rival on the left trying to make joe biden look bad before he gets in. >> really human take and perspective on that, megyn kelly by the way. >> marco rubio and he was joking
4:11 am
about donald trump sending him water, right? it's high quality water. well, hillary clinton yesterday took a page out of donald trump's playbook and actually sent the republicans her book called "hard choices." listen to this. here she is in iowa. >> you know, i hear the republicans talking from time to time in their debates and elsewhere, and they say things like, oh, i don't know what she accomplished as secretary of state. she didn't accomplish anything. i listen to that for awhile. and then i thought, you know, maybe they just don't know. so i have now sent each of them a copy of my book "hard choices" about what we did during those four years. >> listen, it is not a stellar record no matter how you shake it. most think that the things she left undone have fallen apart. >> well, remember back in 2014 her own state department couldn't answer to her accomplishments. look at this. >> can you off the top of your head identify one tangible achievement that resulted from
4:12 am
the last -- >> i am certain that those who were here at the time and worked hard on that effort -- >> one would -- >> -- could point out one. >> since you've come on board that you've noticed that someone that you've noticed that you can point back saying, wow, the first identified this as a problem and dealt with it. >> as you know i've only been here since it was concluded. i'm sure there are a range of things that were put into place that i'm not even aware of. >> i won't hold my breath. >> she was great. she was great. >> she brokered peace with the palestinians, israelis, and there's been no peace since. and the arab spring, that went well. and russia was phenomenal. >> the republicans largely responded. bobby jindal had the best one. hillary, i'll make a deal with you, if you watch these videos, and it's the planned parenthood videos, i'll read your book. >> ted cruz sent her a copy of his back he said on twitter. only good primary fun. >> i know. who knew there was a goodie bag when you're running for president. >> all about imitating donald trump. meanwhile 12 minutes after the

let's play the keith ablow card. the gun control debate has resurfaced following the recent oregon shooting. but our next guest says that tragedy could have been prevented had our mental health system been in better shape. about one in five adults in the u.s. experience mental illness in a given year. that's over 40 million americans. how does that play into this? dr. keith ablow from the fox "a" team joins us. you looked into this shooter's background and you believe that there is a way to have stopped this. how? >> absolutely. listen, that's why it's so cynical and misguided when someone like the president tries to politicize this and say it's about guns. it's about our mental health care system, which is shattered. here's just one way that we could approach this. so many of these assailants,
4:18 am
it's not politically correct to say it, but it happens to be the truth, that so many of them suffer with asperger's syndrome. now most folks with that condition, the vast, vast, vast majority, do not hurt anyone. however the shooters tend to suffer with this condition. why wouldn't we have developed a tool to assess the potential for violence in folks suffering with autism spectrum disorders like asperger's, and especially those with access to firearms. and deploy special resources to them. clinical healing resources. why? because our mental health care system is an abomination. we don't have the will to do that. why? because of misguided leaders like the president, who put us up on wild goose chases looking for guns, when the answer is right in front of us. >> and you've been saying this for years, even before this last year, even before what happened in connecticut. >> absolutely. >> let's look at this case in particular. the father judging by the interview was really detached from the kid. the mom was all over the kid and
4:19 am
had brought him to different health care professionals in the past. what is her responsibility? >> huge responsibility. number one, somebody should have counseled his mother. just like adam lanza's mother in connecticut, sandy hook. bottom line is you can't have firearms around your house. we know that there's some potential for trouble here. what are you doing? let's get the department of social services involved here. we have the resources we need. we don't have to disempower and take liberty away from all americans because a mom whose son banged his head against the wall as a kid, who suffered with a profound mental illness, is nonetheless teaching him to shoot automatic weapons. i mean how hard is that, brian, to find those cases? that's two of the most -- the most dramatic shootings in america's history, two of them are kidding living in the basement of their mother's home, with severe mental illness, and the mother's teaching them to shoot firearms. >> a lot of people who are in defense of guns and not blaming the guns for this incident,
4:20 am
unlike the president, say it's mental health. you just gave a pathway to solving that problem. dr. keith, thanks so much. >> take care, brian. >> 19 minutes after the hour. what do you think about this? a flyer sent home to female students on how to dress for homecoming saying, quote, leave something to the imagination. your e-mails are pouring in. i personally don't have a problem with that. and the hiring process doesn't stop with the interview. sharon is with elisabeth hasselbeck and she's going to come through the door and talk about this very topic. don't ask me how i know.

well, so you think you nailed your interview and now you're just going to sit around and wait for that job offer, right? well, wrong. there are some things that you need to do after the interview to actually land the job. here with that info is fox business network's cheryl casone with great tips for you. you ace the interview, then what? >> you've got to send a thank you note. in this day and age that means actually writing out a note and putting a stamp on an envelope and putting it in the mail. this is one of the big question marks now with regards to people going on interviews in the digital age. how do i handle that the right way? the right way is to send the thank you note. because that's the best way to follow up with someone. thank them for their time, and if you can in the note, put a little line about maybe something that came up in the conversation. >> sure. >> during the job interview that you remembered that you thought was important. >> what if you haven't heard back? >> that's the other thing, too. you want to make sure that you do want to follow up with them. you do want to ask them, you know, keep me posted. but you also need to make sure that you move on. also, you can connect with them on linkedin. that's my second tip today.
4:26 am
after the interview connect with them on linkedin. make sure that your linkedin profile is ready to go. but then you also have that professional connection whether or not you got the job. linkedin is like really, it's the new for job searching. it's great. >> great to know. you say think ahead. how far ahead? >> think ahead. so are you going to sit around and wait for that job offer? or are you going to continue to go on job interviews. that's the first thing that you need to do. also think ahead to how you're going to respond if you get the offer. you need to start thinking what if they offer me the job. what do i want? what kind of money, vacation, things like that. have those conversations with yourself before your phone rings. >> and then this way, your fourth tip, you're prepared to react with tact. good or bad if you get the job or not, be tactful. >> nobody likes to be rejected. it's a human, you know, part of life. but if you are rejected for the job, the way that you handle it can actually set you up for another job even sometimes with that company. but this happens all the time in corporate america. you didn't get the job. you were right for it. next thing you know, six months later, a year later, a job comes
4:27 am
up and they remember you and they remember how gracious you were when you didn't get the job and they're like, you know what? let's reach out if that person is still available and you might be. and you might get lined up. that has happened to -- i have personal stories i know that that's happened to folks. and it's a good thing. >> great tips, cheryl. >> it's tough out there. it's funny because we have unemployment low right now but the quality of jobs are -- it's still not great out there. so there's still a lot of work to be done to get, you know -- >> still send the thank you. two of my favorites. >> put the stamp on it. >> right. >> now coming up, could isis be getting its hands on nuclear weapons? the fbi has already stopped them four different times. the man who killed osama bin laden reacting live with us next. and, the photo is an instant hit on the internet, of course. the heartwarming story behind why this cop ended up taking care of this little baby.

fox news alert. merchants have reportedly been trying to sell nuclear materials to isis. the fbi says it busted smugglers with radioactive material to terrorists. and u.s. officials tell fox at least one was an isis operative. the fbi has been working on this for five years, meeting the russians in places like this high-end night club. this doesn't mean the russian government necessarily, was doing it. it means russian sit steps. >> it sounds like russian gangs. joining us to react is the former navy s.e.a.l. who killed osama bin laden and fox news contributor rob o'neill. rob, so what do you make of this? i mean at the time that the president referred to isis as the jv team, it sounds like the fbi was foiling plots for somebody, russian gangs or something like that, to sell nukes to isis. that doesn't sound like the jv to me?

>> no, hey, good morning, steve. it doesn't sound like the jv at all to me. this is part of the, you know, the fallout of the russian government, the kgb kind of dismantling but still in there. a lot of these guys that normally were part of that, you know, secret group, are part of a criminal organization, and now they're trying to sell what i've been hearing is like cesium, things like that, so, they're not even being able to distinguish the difference between, you know, real terrorists and isis and all this stuff. and basically they're looking to make some money because a lot of these radical islamic groups want to buy anything they can to make this like a dirty bomb type thing and get it to the united states. >> yeah. and that's all it would take. i mean, it doesn't have to be an atomic warhead. they could put it, you know, with some explosives and just blow up some cesium and it would contaminate a block or two and then the headline around the world is, nuclear hit on america. or wherever. >> they've proven right now they don't even need the weapon. all they need is a threat of a
4:33 am
weapon, and they're going to get people nervous. i mean, they've done it before, with any kind of thing they can in an airport and all of a sudden we have a knee jerk reaction to everything. as long as it can't affect anything as far as commerce, as far as trade, as far as travel, they're going to do it. even the threat of this, even right now this will probably have an effect on it. once -- if and when they do, you know, it's going to be worse. they're getting exactly what they want and they're going to get the help of these thugs from the former kgb, the current russian mafia and is going to affect everything from the united states over to europe. all that stuff. >> rob, i've got to ask you about this. your name and address recently published by isis, saying you're their number one target, british isis member giving instructions on how to find you and kill you. how do you handle that? >> well, i've been aware of that since, you know, the days my team and i went in and shot osama bin laden. we knew this would happen. my name's been leaked several times, not quite on this scale. we have stuff in place, security measures that i'm not going to talk about. you know. we were prepared for it. we still are prepared for it.
4:34 am
and, like i was saying yesterday, you know, this is sort of just a call to action to, it's not just for myself, that they target, every member of the military is a target. i'm worried about the families that go to commissaries that are unguarded. you know, they kind of want everyone, they want the grand targets. and you know, i want everyone to be vigilant and i think we as a nation, you know, to kind of wake up and realize, this is a real threat. >> rob, targeting military mens of all shapes and sizes. >> that's right. >> rob, what do we know about this isis recruiter who put out the hit on you? >> all we know about her is i think it's a british female and her husband was killed in a drone strike, and she just kind of got all up in arms and did some research online and she's trying to find stuff about me so she published some addresses somewhere and just kind of mentioned my name. like i said, my name's been out there. we're prepared. you know, i mean, i was a navy s.e.a.l. for 16 years so i know
4:35 am
how to handle these people. i've fought them before a lot in fallujah, ramadi, i was never impressed with them. so you know, i'm taking precautions, as i know how to. >> that's good. >> all right. and she apparently a british citizen, referred to as mrs. terror, sally ann jones, who is regarded as one of the most dangerous isis recruiters. then again she's just tapping out a twitter message hoping that some lone wolf here in the united states reads it -- >> you know, that's what she's looking for. she's doing the social media thing where she kind of reaches out and she's able to recruit people right now, just because you know we're not really doing much about the islamic state. they're kind of over there. they're just turning it into what they want, and no one is doing -- the only people showing leadership overseas right now against anyone are the russians. that's just because the united states right now lacks leadership. we lack a vision. even my friends on s.e.a.l. team 6 right now they're frustrated because they deploy and they
4:36 am
don't have any vision. there's nothing going on. >> that's rough. rob o'neill joining us from somewhere today. rob, thank you very much for your observations. >> thanks so much, i appreciate it. >> and the president brought up, if anybody has an idea -- if they look at david petraeus' ideas, if they look at the other officers ideas you see general campbell yesterday. they have ideas. the president's not listening to their ideas and he's certainly not implementing them. >> general campbell was vocal about that. >> you're not leaving me enough guys. he wants it down to 1,000. you think it's bad now? all this becomes iraq 2 if you leave afghanistan right now. >> how frustrating to hear the commander in chief doesn't provide a vision for his team. >> and he mocks people that do have a different vision. >> it's too bad s.e.a.l. team 6 feels that way as rob just said. it's 25 minutes before the top of the hour. heather has got some news and we're talking about hillary again. and the fbi. >> and fox news has some information we just learned that the fbi's probe into hillary clinton's e-mail is now spanning to a second data company which
4:37 am
backed up her e-mails on a cloud storage system. workers at the company which managed her server say that they are concerned that they were a part of a cover-up. now this according to a letter that was sent to the senate -- by the senate homeland security committee. no comment from the clinton campaign. we'll keep following the story. girls being told to cover up at school. students at nation ford high school in south carolina were asked to, quote, leave something to the imagination. with a quote from 1920s designer edith head. she had said, your dresses should be tight enough to show that you're a woman and loose enough to show that you're a lady. well, some parents didn't like how it was only targeting females. the principal maintains that wasn't the intent. now that quote has been whited out on the flyers around the school. i don't know. sounds like it makes sense. twilight gives a big twist in its ten-year anniversary.

4:40 am

5:02 am
columbia, south carolina, with the latest. jonathan? >> good morning again. this neighborhood is situated between two bodies of water that converge during the flood. take a look at this damage. just an indication that the power of the floodwaters, this home essentially knocked partially off of its foundation. zoom down here to the left. you can see what remains of the driveway, covered in floodwaters. and then the car that was parked in this driveway carried by the floodwaters, out to the middle of the lake behind me. statewide the south carolina department of transportation reports a total of 412 state roads and bridges are closed. police say some motorists willing to take chances are removing barricades to get their cars through. and then when they drive past the barricades they don't bother to replace them. so anyone coming up behind them doesn't realize there's a hazard. and so authorities are urging folks not to remove barricades. as floodwaters recede from columbia, they're moving downstream toward the low country. so the state has dispatched crews to monitor dams and
5:03 am
bridges, so they can get out the warning if they see any kinds of trouble. >> we are still in prayer mode. we are still in the fact that the next 36 to 48 hours is going to be volatile. so what we'll tell you is don't let the sunshine fool you. but we are prepared. >> columbia, city water customers are under a boil water advisory. stations have been set up around the city to distribute free bottled water. and the nonprofit water missions international is setting up a purification system near a water tower here in columbia. the christian charity normally does its work in developing countries. but, steve, brian and elisabeth, the scope of all of this flooding has changed a lot of things. it is clearly not business as usual. back to you guys. >> that is an understatement. jonathan serrie down in columbia, south carolina, where the charity rather than being overseas, is needed at home. >> go to heather nauert with the latest on the headlines as it pertains to russia. a fox news alert.

>> this is quite an alert to tell you about right now. russian gangs have been trying to sell nuclear materials to terrorists, including isis? the fbi confirming to fox that it has busted smugglers peddling radioactive materials to terror groups. we just spoke to rob o'neill, the former navy s.e.a.l. who killed osama bin laden about this new report. listen to this. >> they're getting exactly what they want and they're going to use it from these thugs from the former kgb, the current russian mafia and it's going to affect everything from the united states over to europe, all that. >> well the fbi is working on the sting operation we are told for five years. meeting the russians at places like high end night clubs. well breaking overnight, doctors without borders calling for an independent fact finding mission into the u.s. air strike on a hospital in afghanistan. saying that the deaths of 22 doctors and patients could not be dismissed as collateral damage. yesterday the top u.s. commander in afghanistan admitted that that strike was a mistake. he also urged president obama to

5:07 am
remember the gunman reportedly said, what's your religion, and then if people said christian, he shot them in the head. and if they didn't say christian, i shot them in the legs. brian asked a great question, with a great answer, that has generated quite a lot of headlines. watch this. >> dr. carson, if a gunman walks up and put the gun at you and says what religion are you? that is the ultimate test of your faith. >> i'm glad you asked that question. because, not only would i probably not cooperate with him, i would -- i would not just stand there and let him shoot me. i would say hey guys, everybody attack him. he may shoot me but he can't get us all. >> so what they did is they said, i would not just stand there and just shoot me. so it sounds as if, with that tone, that he's saying, like you guys in oregon, i wouldn't have just stood there. if you listen to the whole thing, he's just saying that one method of what i would have done
5:08 am
is not answer him, i would have tackled him. had nothing to do with criticizing the students in oregon. >> i know but the mainstream media is running with that. and they're running with that criticism. this is a man who spent the majority of life bringing people back to life. not stomping on graves. the president of the federal law enforcement association actually defended dr. carson saying this, quote, dr. carson's comments may seem tactically reckless but they actually have great merit. we should have learned from 9/11 that if not for the brave passengers on flight 93 who due to extraordinary courage the consequences and fatalities may have been worse. >> we asked you what you thought about the comments. we got a lot of responses. here's a tweet. it says as a combat vet, i wouldn't stand up to get shot. carson had it right. rush the gunman, fight for your life. >> facebook saying i like ben carson but the comments are ridiculous. how in the world can he say what he would do in that situation? >> he was asked. he just answered a question. and that's what he said he would do. what does he say? well, i don't know.

i would prefer i hope i would stand up. we have a 30-year-old in the hospital who was shot seven times. he was trained to attack. he went right at the gunman. are you criticizing him for doing that? would ben carson be agreeing with him? yes. would he be disagreeing with somebody else's actions in the classroom? this is the time. if you were a front-runner, they go after you like i've never seen -- >> not if you're hillary clinton, though. i mean she's been pet by the mainstream media -- >> you mean nbc-a-thon when she's on "snl," the today show, al sharpton, morning joe, all in one? >> separating -- >> andrea mitchell. >> separating it from the tragic events that occurred when you take dr. carson's point about what he would do. he wasn't saying what he would have done if he were there in that situation. if he were to be in that situation moving forward, colleges and universities right now are giving you relook to their whole self-defense policy and they're now treating the potential of a mass shooter walking into their campuses like any other hazard, like a tornado warning. like a flooding warning.
5:10 am
and they're looking at this and they're re-evaluating their tactics and that's what's leading to really starting a brave conversation about what needs to be handled moving forward. >> that particular campus was a gun free zone and the fact the guard didn't seen have guns. the president of the united states is going to be heading out to roseburg, oregon, on friday. he's going to be meeting with the family of some of the victims. i say some of the victims, because some of the families of the victims don't want to talk to the president. because they saw the president shortly after the shoot-out -- or rather the massacre out there, he went to the podium in the white house and said, this is something we should politicize. stacy boyland, father of a shooting victim, didn't like that. doesn't want the president out there. >> well, i do believe it was rahm emanuel who said never let a good tragedy go to waste. and i really feel that his visit here is completely to support his gun control agenda. i can't understand why he wouldn't make a mention of the
5:11 am
families and the victims. he did this, say it was a tragic incident, and i do thank him for lowering the flags. but he made it all about gun control. he was very clear about that. and you know, we saw this in sandy hook and now we're seeing it again, and i just question his motives. >> i've spoken to my family and for myself and for my daughter and son, on principle, i find that we -- i am, you know, in disagreement with his policies on gun control and therefore, we will not be attending the visit. >> won't be alone. and, in fact, there will be about 2,000 people in attendance. protesting the president's appearance, according to invitations that have been accepted yn line. >> there's not one thing the president has proposed that would have stopped that attack in oregon. and that's the point. >> and the discussion should open up to gun free zones without a doubt. that has to be part of the discussion overall. >> so what do you think about ben carson's comments and everything else? let us know,
5:12 am meanwhile coming up, a record release. 6,000 prisoners about to be sprung by the president. who are these criminals? and why are they walking free? peter johnson jr. looks behind that giant release. >> and it turns out the shape of your face says a whole lot about your personality. what does taylor swift's diamond face mean you ask? we have the results straight ahead. >> just shake it off. constipated?

well the obama administration about to release the most federal inmates at one time ever. thousands of nonviolent drug offenders will walk free, thanks to a new sentencing guidelines. here with more, fox news legal analyst peter johnson jr. okay, peter, 6,000? >> good morning. this is quite incredible. for some it may be halloween. is it trick or is it a treat? 6,000. that's how many federal inmates are going to be released between october 30th and november 2nd this year. a majority will be transferred to halfway houses before being put on supervised release. and about one-third of those who are undocumented immigrants, illegal aliens, will be handed over to i.c.e. for possible deportation. it's part of new sentencing
5:17 am
guidelines for drug crimes put in place by the u.s. sentencing commission last year. those guidelines were intended to reduce overcrowding, and provide relief to drug offenders who received long sentences over the past three decades. under the change, eligible prisoners will have an average of two years shaved off their sentences. >> great amount of time there. so how does the judge actually decide, peter, who gets set free and who doesn't. >> that's an interesting question. during the process, a judge reviews each prisoner's case to decide if his or her release would jeopardize the public safety. most of those eligible for consideration have already served eight or ten years or more. in all, some 50,000 federal inmates will be eligible. and another 6500 releases are likely. deputy general -- deputy attorney general said even with the sentencing commission's reductions, drug offenders will have served substantial prison
5:18 am
sentences. moreover these reductions are not automatic. under the commission's directive federal judges are required to carefully consider public safety in deciding whether to reduce an inmate's sentence. so safety is allegedly the key. >> of course. i mean critics are concerned there will be a surge and increase in violence and crime. >> very concerned. >> does congress have a say in this? have they done anything to try to stop it? >> unfortunately congress did nothing to stop the change. so it became effective on november 1st, 2014. the commission then gave the justice department one year to prepare for this huge release of inmates. critics say releasing so many prisoners all at once could cause crime rates to skyrocket. there's concern that not all of the releasees were convicted of all the crimes they actually committed. but the measure is part of a liberal shift in the nation's approach to criminal justice and drug sentencing. two years ago then-attorney general eric holder directed federal prosecutors to avoid seeking mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug
5:19 am
offenders. instead, prosecutors are said to recommend sentences that factor in the types and the quantities of the drugs involved until the drug dealing. so a lot of people have concerns. a lot of people on the left are very happy. a lot of other americans are saying, what's going to happen? because we know based on the department of justice statistics, that almost 30% of federal releasesed drug prisoners will go back to commit crimes. >> the recidivism rate is significant. i mean -- >> absolutely. >> if you're in the areas where they're being released, i can't imagine you'd be happy if that's -- >> this is a huge, huge release. huge. unprecedented in american history. >> peter, thank you for that. >> good to see you. >> this coming up. check it out. one of mom's responses to her child's homework on the five pillars of islam and it's going viral. you've got to see it to believe it. and a teenager jumps into action at a restaurant to save a man's life using something she actually learned at summer camp.

5:25 am
okay, i know what to do, but i sure hope maybe there's a doctor in the house? or a nurse, or somebody else, first, right? >> oh, yes. absolutely. as soon as i started compressions that was definitely one of the first things that came to mind. i was praying a doctor or nurse would show up and say, move over, this is what i do for a living. but unfortunately that was not the case. >> so eleanor, you do this with compressions. so you had to calm down because you knew what was happening. it's been two years since you went to summer camp and learned this. what exactly did you do? because there's so many different ways of doing cpr keeps graduating and changing. so how did you approach it? >> well, i was very thankful to have a great waitress to my left. she was supporting his head and keeping his airway clear for me. and i had another great woman on my right who was on her hands and knees just praying and motivating all of us. >> wow. >> so all i had to do was compressions while my mom held his feet and the lovely waitress supported his head for me. >> started at 15, then you went to 30? >> i started with heart
5:26 am
compressions. i could see the life fall out of him. i mean i was right there when it happened. i was hoping it would only take about ten compressions to get him back. and i quickly realized that was not the case and had to step it up to 30. >> what pattern were you using? about a month and a half ago we had somebody giving us a demonstration out on the plaza where they said that the rhythm is ha, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive. have you heard that particular approach? >> i have heard that one. unfortunately i didn't have a very clear mind in the situation and wasn't able to think of that. i just kept counting to 30 and the wait was was able to help us as well. >> you had a chance to meet him last night? >> i did. and it was one of those precious moments you will never forget. he is sitting up. he is happy and healthy and with his family. it was a wonderful experience getting to see him. >> well i know you've been on mission trips where you've helped provide medical aid abroad. this is the first time you actually provided medical aid, and what looked like a chili's.
5:27 am
>> yes, it was at a chili's. >> job well done. >> thank you so much. i appreciate it. >> now you got to go back to school. just out of curiosity, you're a senior. what do you want to be when you grow up? >> i had every intention of going in to psychologist and premed and hoping to pursue a career in psychiatry. but after the events on sunday night, i have a little more faith in myself and being able to go potentially into emergency medicine. so i do think medical school is in my future. >> that's fantastic. >> i do, too. >> thanks, eleanor. >> thank you. >> all right. >> that's great. >> that is fantastic. all right. 32 minutes to the top of the hour. our future looks like this. >> recess just came serious business. why schools are hiring consultants to teach your kid how to play at recess. and what do say. your outraged e-mail, in any cases, pouring in on that. >> i would love to be a recess consultant. and you know him as one of the heart throbs from grease and a whole bunch of other hit productions. like steve doocy he was a teen

later in the day, it is clear if you sit there and let them shoot you, you're going to be dead. >> that's right. so either you're going to die crying or you're going to die fighting. i'd rather die fighting. >> the mainstream media, though, has turned against dr. carson on this saying that he's being heartless toward those victims that you just saw in the recent shooting on the community campus. why do you think that is? >> i have no idea. because he didn't mention the victims. he mentioned himself personally. what he would do personally. >> right. and so what you're seeing is a -- you get where he's coming from. >> yes. >> it's a commonsense approach to you. and yet if you were watching any of the other channels yesterday, they were blowing this up, they were calling them controversial comments, and in the mean time you've got hillary clinton and she certainly is not being called on her record. >> no, not at all. which she should be. everyone seems to think that it's okay for her to go around lying all the time. >> about this whole thing, regardless of what he said, when you become a leader, ben carson in particular, no one can figure out why he's so successful so far in this race.

they don't like his comments about muslims. they don't like this comments about gays. they don't like his comments about what he would do in a shooting situation. is it amazing to you that despite these blips his popularity is only increasing? >> no. >> can you figure it out? >> i think it's because he stands his ground. and people like that. people like when you're a person that stands with commitment >> how hard is it to do that when the criticism is coming in? to stand your ground and seem to brush it off? >> well, you don't brush it off. but if you're a person of faith and you have faith in something higher than yourself, it's not as difficult. >> right but stacey, you stood your ground because you came out, you were out in hollywood, and you said, i really like mitt romney. and suddenly out of the woodwork everybody came attacking you. how dare you like a republican? >> yeah, that's absurd because of the color of his skin which is absurd. i stand for what's right. i believe is right. and what i believe god would want me to do. i always ask god what is, you know, what is it that you want me to do. and if that's what god wants me to do, i'm going to do it, come
